- Fix New York's government? Some say key is new constitution
By MARY ESCH, Associated Press - Sunday Aug 6, 2017
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Corruption and a rigged political system are battle cries of both sides in a debate over whether New Yorkers should vote this fall to rewrite the state constitution.Advocates of a "yes" vote say a constitutional convention is the only way to fix dysfunction, corruption and inefficiency in government and throw the bums out of Albany.Environmental groups fear a convention could open the door to delete or weaken protections for clean air and water, healthy forests and the 6-million-acre (2.4-million hectare) Adirondack Park.The real money involved in this is the labor unions that are trying to block a convention because they have great sway with this government and don't want it to change, said Gerald Benjamin, a political science professor and co-editor of a new book, New York's Broken Constitution:Right-to-Life and Planned Parenthood; the Conservative Party and left-leaning Working Families Party; LGBT Network and New York State Rifle and Pistol Association.Benjamin said a convention is the only way to fix problems with administration of elections, campaign finance, the structure of the court system and the Legislature, which he believes would be more effective with one house instead of two.
- Critics throw shade at Cuomo's plan to light NYC bridges
By DAVID KLEPPER, Associated Press - Sunday Aug 13, 2017
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Critics are throwing shade at Gov. Andrew Cuomo's pricey plan to install high-tech, color-changing lights on New York City's bridges, questioning whether the investment is the best use of public money.A government watchdog group this month called for a state probe into what it says are conflicting explanations for how much the lights cost and where that money will come from.De Blasio, who has frequently sparred with his fellow Democrat, urged Cuomo to reallocate the money for emergency repairs on the subway system, which has been plagued by mounting delays, derailments and other problems caused by decades of neglect.Despite initial reports that the Metropolitan Transportation Authority would foot the bill, the state now says the money will come from economic development funds and proceeds from the state's Power Authority, which often works on big energy efficiency projects.

Baidu Inc. has enlisted more than 50 partners for its Apollo driverless project, signing up big firms in areas from mapping and ride sharing to automaking to aid the Chinese search giant’s foray into artificial-intelligence-powered vehicles.The move opens up part of Baidu’s autonomous car software in the same way that Google released its Android operating system for smartphones.By encouraging companies to build products using them, Baidu hopes to fine-tune its systems and overtake research efforts by the likes of Waymo, which is part of Mountain View’s Alphabet, as is Google.Baidu listed four Chinese carmakers, suppliers Robert Bosch GmbH and Continental AG and technology companies including Microsoft as part of the Apollo alliance.Southeast Asian ride-hailing giant Grab and mapping systems company TomTom are also joining the program.Widely considered the Google of China, Baidu hopes research into artificial intelligence will create a generation of products to help revive revenue growth.True Religion Brand Jeans filed for bankruptcy protection Wednesday, the latest retailer upended as Americans increase spending, but largely in places other than clothing stores.The European Union and Japan have agreed “in principle” on a free trade deal that will affect an overwhelming majority of commerce between the two economic giants and will be officially endorsed at a summit of their leaders.EU Council President Donald Tusk and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will meet Thursday and will be able to shake hands on the landmark deal, which took four years of negotiations.EU Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom said in a tweet that “We’ve reached political agreement” and “now recommend to leaders to confirm this” at their short summit.
