It seems as if you can’t be a key player for the St. John’s Red Storm unless head coach Steve Lavin has suspended you for at least one game for mysteriously violating team rules. Last year guard D’Angelo Harrison missed the last few games of the regular season, along with St. John’s futile appearance in the postseason NIT. Earlier this season center Chris Obepka was suspended for a pair of exhibition games for unsaid infractions.
This past Friday night it was hyped rookie guard Rysheed Jordan’s turn to sit out a game for unspecified bad deeds. Jordan, a big-time Philadelphia high school star, was supposed to be the best recruit to come to St. John’s since Lavin became head coach four years ago. Lavin and the St. John’s Sports Information Department decided before this season started that the media would not be able to interview him until January 2014 at the earliest. Obviously putting Rysheed in a cocoon has not been the foolproof plan that the St. John’s coaching staff thought it would be. At press time, Lavin did not indicate when Jordan would be reinstated.

What do you get when a novice director tries to put seasoned veterans through their paces in a purposely repetitive community theater comedy?
That’s not a setup for a joke. In the case of the First String Players’ current attraction, “Play On!,” what you get is a laugh-filled afternoon or evening in the theater.
Lawmakers call for hearing on NYPD IG, stop-and-frisk bills
If you’re starting a small business in the design or high-technology sectors, you could hardly pick a better location in today’s New York than Long Island City. The rapidly developing area’s got it all: a fast-growing population, high-rise development to accommodate it and the glamour of Manhattan so close it almost looks like you could touch it.
And if you’re starting small but have a promising idea likely to result in growth — meaning you’ll be hiring at some point in the not-too-distant future —the best spot for you in LIC just might be one at NYDesigns, the business incubator at LaGuardia Community College.
The process of bringing big-name stores, companies and vendors into the city has proven difficult for many businesses. It is a gamble and often requires a lot of community outreach.
So when it was announced that an operator had finally been selected for the city’s first casino, right here in Queens, administrators of what would become Resorts World Casino New York City knew they had to make it about the community.
(StatePoint) No one likes to think about worst case scenarios, but being prepared for them is crucial to quickly recover in the event they occur.
On the city’s darkest day, as most eyes were naturally focused on the stunning human tragedy resulting from the destruction of the World Trade Center, Deputy Mayor for Operations Joe Lhota was busy trying to get the city government up and running again.

On June 6, 1944, thousands of men stormed the beaches of Normandy, France to shake Europe from the grip of the Third Reich. The attack, known as D-Day, was one of the bloodiest days in World War II and American history.
Rocco Moretto, a young man from Astoria, was among the slew of men who waded from the amphibious boats to land. He was also among the very few from his company to survive the mission.
The Subway Series, which gets underway on Monday at Citi Field and concludes Thursday at Yankee Stadium, is a great way to take stock of our two Major League Baseball franchises. Last June the Mets dropped five out of six games against the Yankees, which served as a warning that their supposed terrific first half when they won 46 games was a mirage.
This year the Mets are not teasing their fans, as they have been playing at the low level that was expected of them before the season began. The Yankees, on the other hand, have been near or at the top of the American League East standings despite the loss to injuries of such household names as Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Mark Texeira and Curtis Granderson. Granderson has returned to the team but was replaced on the disabled list by veteran pitcher Andy Pettitte.
A duo of megalith sports franchises, the New York Yankees and Britain’s Manchester City Football Club, announced on Monday Major League Soccer’s 20th franchise and second foray in the tri-state metropolitan area: New York City Football Club.
As officials from MLS, the Bronx Bombers, Abu Dhabi-owned Man City and Mayor Bloomberg congratulated each other during a Tuesday press conference rolling out the franchise, there was one notable absence: the Unisphere, which had become ubiquitous in the league’s push to build a home in Flushing Meadows Corona Park.
Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-Brooklyn,Queens) came to the May meeting of the Lindenwood Alliance, in the Fairfield Arms Co-op, to meet some of his new constituents.
Jeffries told the audience that he was concerned with resolving any issues that residents had with the Federal Emergency Management Agency regarding Hurricane Sandy.
Major League Soccer’s proposal to build a stadium in Flushing Meadows Corona Park has re-emerged this week, jangling a borough that has spent the better part of three months focused elsewhere.
The league once again contends it’s weeks away from finalizing a deal with the city, as it did last fall. This time, the league may have found an oil-rich owner for the proposed franchise: Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, a billionaire member of the Abu Dhabi royal family and deputy prime minister of the United Arab Emirates.
