We are not going to create a religious registry for our Muslim brothers and sisters. We will not divide people. And no matter what happens in Washington D.C., we will never go back to the era of stop-and-frisk.” Minutes after de Blasio left the event, City Comptroller Scott Stringer, who is considering challenging de Blasio in this year's primary, told the crowd that it’s difficult to fight Trump when New York City has so many problems. “The way you beat Trump is you solve the homeless crisis in this city,’ Stringer said, evoking cheers from the audience. “The way you beat Trump is to give 1,150 vacant properties in this town back to the people, not the developers. You see if you take the 30 percent of the people who are homeless and working and give them a real affordable housing unit, a real low-income affordable housing unit, that’s how you reduce the homeless in this city.

It's not everyday that a city official sounds the alarm by claiming a city plan could "inadvertently displace tens of thousands" of New Yorkers from one neighborhood alone. That's what a report from City Comptroller Scott Stringer spelled out last month, undermining the promises of Mayor Bill de Blasio, who insists his 'affordable' housing plan will help protect from, not fuel, gentrification. This sort of displacement, driven by developers and embraced by the mayor, should be fought at every turn. However, when longtime neighborhood groups back city hall and development firms are asked to capture the cultural spirit of the city, eyebrows are raised. So who's in favor of the mayor's plan, which includes the rezoning of key neighborhoods like East New York (the subject of Stringer's report), East Harlem and some areas of the Bronx? In El Barrio (East Harlem), there have been some contentious debates around rezoning.

) Divisional-Round Predictions Seattle Seahawks at Atlanta Falcons The matchups just fall in the Atlanta Falcons' favor. The Seattle Seahawks offensive line will have trouble with edge-rusher Vic Beasley. The secondary, without safety Earl Thomas, will have its hands full with quarterback Matt Ryan and wide receiver Julio Jones . And Seattle wasn't nearly as good on the road (3-4-1) as it was at home (7-1) during the regular season. All signs point to a comfortable Falcons win. Pick: Atlanta 30, Seattle 20 Houston Texans at New England Patriots There isn't a possible path to victory for the Houston Texans. They can't score consistently, and on Saturday, they are tasked with facing the league's best scoring defenseon the road, no less. Their defense is solid, but they let up 27 points the last time these two teams played, and that was with third-stringer Jacoby Brissett at QB for the Pats.

PETALING JAYA: Veteran journalist R. Nadeswaran (pix) retires today, bringing an end to a distinguished career that spanned over 50 years, of which the last 17 years were with theSun. Nades, who is known for his bi-weekly "Citizen Nades" column in theSun, began his half-century-odd journey in the profession as a sports stringer for The Malay Mail while still in secondary school in the late 1960s. The veteran award-winning journalist, who was theSun's Investigative and Special Reports editor, is known for pulling no punches when confronting misgovernance, corruption and lack of transparency in the administration of the country. Among the biggest expose by the journalist-extraordinaire while at theSun was the Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) scandal, which he later revisited in his book Some Untold Stories. "I had a good innings," said Nadeswaran, who is an avid cricketer and golfer.

Getty Images Soldiers involved in a coup attempt to take control of Turkey surrender on Bosphorus bridge on July 16, 2016 in Istanbul. Turkey's Coup BY Stringer The photographer, identified at the time of publication in July, declined an interview. The Bosphorus Bridge in Istanbul connects Europe with Asia. In mid-July, scenes of chaos on this structure would bookend the failed coup. It was late on July 15 when Turkish soldiers appeared on the bridge and blocked traffic, igniting a storm of rumors on social media. Was there a threat from terrorists? Had an attack already been carried out? Neither. [time-ad size=small align=right] Over the next nine hours, a faction within Turkeys army would unravel a plan to topple the government of Recep Tayyip Erdogan, only to have it collapse within hours. The strongman they aimed to take down would emerge not only still in power, but more powerful than ever.

He stopped relying on his staff, especially his communications team; he was unable to dodge the persistent criticism that he was more interested in serving as the leader of newly emboldened progressive movement than he was running the city. Even as he passed most of his agenda, he would stumble backwards across the finish line, knocking out would-be allies along the way. “Never underestimate the ability of this mayor to take a moment advantageous to him and fucking blow it,” said one former aide. As a result, among white voters, de Blasio has a paltry 28 percent approval rating. Among self-identified liberals, de Blasio has seen a 15-point drop since the summer, even as his overall approval rating has steadied. As his popularity slid, speculation in New York City’s political circles grew that a serious challenger would arise in the 2017 Democratic primary, someone like City Comptroller Scott Stringer or Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr or Brooklyn Congressman Hakeem Jeffries.
