    Share this: Thousands of Brooklyn students attending CUNY colleges and community colleges stand to benefit if New York State moves forward with Gov. Kathy Hochul’s proposal to extend the Tuition Assistance Program to part-time students, a study released on Monday by the Center for an Urban Future.  The study shows that nearly 20,000 undergraduate students at four CUNY campuses in Brooklyn—Kingsborough Community College, NYC College of Technology (City Tech), Brooklyn College and Medgar Evers College—attend on a part-time basis.  Currently, most part-time students are shut out of the state’s main financial aid program, according to the think tank, which focuses on economic mobility, growing the economy and decreasing inequality. According to the report, more than half of all students at Kingsborough Community College (50.3 percent) attend part-time — a higher share of students than at any other CUNY campus.

    Brooklyn Nets forward Paul Millsap appears to be on his way out of Brooklyn in the hopes of finding a team where he can have a “greater contribution.” Paul Millsap has only been with the Nets since September, but new reports suggest that the organization is already trying to find a better place for the veteran forward. According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, the Nets are looking for, as it was politely put, a new team where Millsap can offer a “greater contribution” to the roster. When Millsap has seen the court this season, the 36-year-old veteran is averaging 3.4 points and 3.7 rebounds over 27 games. It’s the worst averages the four-time NBA All-Star has seen in his 16-year career.

    NEW YORK (AP) — Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving was fined $25,000 by the NBA on Thursday for cursing at a fan in Cleveland. Irving’s comments to the fan during the second quarter of Brooklyn’s 114-107 loss on Monday were captured on video. Irving used profanity in reminding the fan that he helped the Cavaliers win the NBA championship in 2016. The NBA has been trying to clean up profanity among players, fining Irving’s teammate Kevin Durant and New York’s Julius Randle recently for using obscene language during interviews. Irving’s exchange with the fan was part of an eventful return to his former home. After the game, he reiterated that he wasn’t changing his stance on refusing the COVID-19 vaccine, which has kept him ineligible to play in home games because of New York City’s mandate for professional athletes. ___ More AP NBA: https://apnews.com/hub/nba and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press.

The parties, Perau v. Lougrini, sought a determination of liability in the bifurcated trial.

    Share this: The last quarter of 2021 showed that Brooklyn had what one specialist called ” the most active 4th quarter in the history of Brooklyn.”  Greg Heym, chief economist for Brown Harris Stevens and a former chief economist for the Real Estate Board of New York, praised Brooklyn’s  “continuing powerful growth and sustainability,” particularly in sales and closings of condos and co-ops. The Fourth Quarter Report for Residential Real Estate from Brown Harris Stevens, which describes itself as a “luxury real estate firm providing full-service residential management,” says, “While the average apartment price in Brooklyn ticked down from the record level of the third quarter, it remained 11% higher than a year ago. This was due in part to a rise in high-end closings, as the median price was just 1% above the fourth quarter of 2020.” A busy new development market, the report added, helped bring condo prices higher over the past year in most of the markets in our report. “Co-op prices posted smaller gains, and even fell in a few areas,” it said. The report did not address rentals.
    Photo by Al Bello/Getty Images The Brooklyn Nets welcomed their unvaccinated point guard Kyrie Irving back for road games, but his teammates want more. Brooklyn had a statement game Wednesday night, relying on their big three of Kevin Durant, James Harden, and Irving to beat the Chicago Bulls 138-112. But the Nets will have to play their next two contests without Irving because of New York City’s vaccine mandate. The star point guard remains unvaccinated and barred from the Nets’ arena for home games. The rest of Irving’s teammates are vaccinated, thus eligible to play in every game and they’d like their superstar point guard to get on board to boost their chances of winning a title. Following Brooklyn’s Wednesday night victory, Harden was asked about the prospects of getting Irving cleared to play in New York. “I’m gonna give him the shot,” Harden told reporters with a smile.

Bracken, was tuning up his force for a finish fight on gambling and vice today as Deputy Chief David J. McAuliffe, in command of Manhattan, opened his offensive against the same crimes. Appointed two days earlier than Bracken, McAuliffe has had an opportunity to complete his organization so that at the stroke of last midnight he was able to lead a raiding squad against a dice game operated by Billy Warren at 182 3rd Ave., Manhattan. McAuliffe personally swung the ax which battered down the door at the entrance to the second-story loft, where 49 men were grouped around a dice table over which the cubes had clicked heretofore comparatively immune from police interference. The 49 prisoners were taken away in three patrol wagons. Warren, well known to the Broadway sporting element, was not among them.

    Getty Brooklyn Nets rookie Cam Thomas looks on during a game against the Memphis Grizzlies. Although his rookie campaign with the Brooklyn Nets got off to a slow start, Cam Thomas has found his footing as a pro baller in recent weeks. Over his last 10 games, the first-round pick has averaged 10.7 points, 4.1 rebounds and 2.1 assists per contest. Although he was just 4-for-11 from the floor in the game, he hit double figures again on Sunday against the San Antonio Spurs. Clearly, though, he saved his best bucket for last. With less than 10 seconds left to play in overtime, Kevin Durant made a strong move toward the elbow from the backcourt. However, when the Spurs brought a double-team, he was forced to swing the ball back above the break to Thomas. As the defense scrambled, Thomas went full-on KD with a hard drive of his own, getting past Jakob Poeltl and into the paint where he threw up an off-balance floater. Despite the high degree of difficulty on the attempt and the pressure of...
