ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — A New York state lawmaker is demanding a federal investigation into New York state's care for the disabled following a recent Associated Press story that revealed the case of a man infested with maggots in a state-run group home.Democratic Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi, of Utica, told the AP on Saturday that he is asking the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to investigate the group home and other state-regulated facilities for the disabled where there have been allegations of abuse and neglect.A copy of the report was obtained by The Associated Press, which found that New York state is not alone in making it difficult for members of the public to access records about allegations of abuse and neglect in state-regulated facilities for the disabled.

- Disney’s new streaming plan might save ESPN
By Staff and News Services - Wednesday Aug 9, 2017
Two years ago, Disney CEO Bob Iger acknowledged that ESPN, long a major profit center for Disney, was shedding subscribers.On Tuesday, Disney announced a plan intended to start bolstering ESPN’s fortunes.The service, to be delivered through the ESPN app, will offer baseball, hockey, soccer and tennis matches, as well as college sports.The service was started by Major League Baseball, which remains a minority owner, along with the National Hockey League.Over time, that could begin a spiral in which fewer subscribers mean less money for ESPN to use in bidding for sports rights; fewer games to air then would give more subscribers reason to quit.Optimists believe ESPN has the clout to strike better deals with cable and satellite-TV companies, in essence allowing it to raise prices and to enlist their help in signing up more households for its premium service.Wrestle Like A Girl Inc. and its partners announced that they have submitted a bid seeking emerging sport status from the NCAA.USA Wrestling, the U.S. Olympic Committee and other organizations hope to make women’s wrestling a collegiate sport as quickly as possible.For the men, St. Mary’s opens at home against Loyola Marymount, USF plays at San Diego and Santa Clara hosts Pepperdine.The Knicks hired Craig Robinson, former President Barack Obama’s brother-in-law, to be their vice president of player development.Dick MacPherson, who resurrected a declining Syracuse football program in the 1980s and restored it to national prominence before returning to the NFL, has died.
- Nearly 2 tons of seized ivory to be crushed in Central Park
By MARY ESCH, Associated Press - Thursday Aug 3, 2017
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Nearly two tons of trinkets, statues and jewelry crafted from the tusks of at least 100 slaughtered elephants are heading for a rock crusher in New York City's Central Park to demonstrate the state's commitment to smashing the illegal ivory trade.[...] state environmental officials, who are partnering with the Wildlife Conservation Society and Tiffany & Co. for Thursday's "Ivory Crush," say no price justifies slaughtering elephants for their tusks.Last year, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service instituted a near-total ban on the domestic commercial ivory trade and barred sales across state lines.Since August 2014, New York law has prohibited the sale, purchase, trade or distribution of anything made from elephant or mammoth ivory or rhinoceros horn, except in limited situations with state approval.The World Wildlife Fund says the illegal wildlife trade not only threatens animal populations, but also endangers national security by funding terrorist cells.
