- The 10 best rookies NY has ever seen — and Judge is chasing
By Mike Vaccaro - Saturday Jul 8, 2017
When Aaron Judge barged on past Joe DiMaggio on Friday, blasting his 30th home run and breaking the Yankee Clipper’s rookie record — a mark that only had stood for 81 years — it was simply another reaffirmation of how valuable an addition Judge has been. And not just for the Yankees. Rookies are the...
- Man convinced living room painting is $300M Michelangelo masterpiece
By Associated Press - Thursday Jul 20, 2017
TONAWANDA, N.Y. — Martin Kober is convinced the painting of a dying Jesus that hung above the mantel in his upstate New York childhood home is the work of Michelangelo.

- When just vanilla won’t do, how about a blueberry pie Oreo?
By Maya Salam - Monday Jul 3, 2017
Oreo makes a lot of cookies — 40 billion in 18 countries each year — enough to make it the world’s best-selling cookie.Most of them are the familiar sandwich that’s over 100 years old: white cream nestled between two chocolate wafers.“We consider a variety of factors to determine the right flavors for the right markets and partners, such as customer feedback and consumer preference,” Vincent said, adding that there is no template for which flavor goes to which retailer.[...] there are certain flavors that even fewer people will get to try: those that result from a social media contest that will earn one Oreo fan $500,000.Some contenders so far have included English Breakfast Tea (it tastes like tea), Peach Melba (has the flavor of a gummi peach), Mermaid (a sort of lime cream), and at least three doughnut-adjacent flavors to complement the Jelly Donut already in mass production:Darren Seifer, an industry analyst at the NPD Group, a market research company, said companies need to be cautious when offering consumers a product that’s too similar to the original.Oreo’s social media push, he added, could be interpreted as an effort to save on market research funds — which other companies certainly have done, he said.“Instead of going and spending lots of money on focus groups and taste testing, they’re almost using the power of social media to help them out figure out what’s the next road and what’s the next big thing,” he said.A food industry expert told U.S. News & World Report that the cookie left an unpleasant aftertaste and only vaguely tasted like watermelon.
