Styrofoam latest target on Bloomberg’s ban list Sanitation wants a ban on the eco-unfriendly material Would be next up on Bloomberg’s chopping block The mayor says that he’s ‘willing to take a look’ GETTY IMAGES

Smoking, soda, Styrofoam. The eco-unfriendly material found in takeout containers and party cups might be next on the shortlist to get slashed by the city. One month before a ban on sugary drinks larger than 16 ounces takes effect, the city may have found its next target. A sanitation official told reporters that the department will propose banning Styrofoam. John McCarthy, a spokesman for Mayor Michael Bloomberg, told Metro, “We are always willing to take a look at new ways to reduce waste that can’t be recycled or reused.” Bloomberg has in the past banned smoking in restaurants and parks, and he pushed for the soda ban, which begins in March. Right now, the city refuses to recycle Styrofoam — officials say it is too difficult. But it can be found


The Department of Sanitation plans to propose a ban on Styrofoam, according to city officials.


The city estimates that paper foam makes of up .5 percent of the city’s trash.


Paper foam can take up to 80 years to break down, according to the EPA.

ASPCA rescues 50 felines from Brooklyn hoarders ASPCA


The ASPCA Cruelty Intervention Advocacy team had been monitoring what they called a “cat hoarding” situation in Brooklyn, and grew alarmed as superstorm Sandy seemed to increase the peril facing some 50 cats living in one Brooklyn apartment. On Nov. 15, the team went in and removed all 50 cats, on the grounds that while the owners spent “much of their time” caring for the cats, they could not keep up with the spay/neuter and other needs of so many animals, making proper care impossible.

The Grammys are not always easy to predict. Sometimes the National Academy of Recording Arts and Science gets it right, like with Adele sweeping all six categories she was nominated in last year, including the “Big Three” (Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Album of the Year). But sometimes the Academy gets it horribly wrong. We still can’t figure out how Herbie Hancock

Song of the Year

Record of the Year

What it means

This is really the biggest Grammy, and people sometimes get confused because of those 12-inch vinyl things that are also called records. This award honors the actual performance, the studio production and that certain X-factor that makes a song a defining snippet of sound for that year, or you know, a record.

This award is for the songwriter, so if Kelly Clarkson’s tune wins, she doesn’t actually win, because she didn’t have a hand in composing “Stronger.” All other artists in this category wrote their respective songs.

Album of the Year


Ah, the album, that rare perfect collection of songs. It’s only getting closer to extinction as we get further away from the analog age.

After Taylor Swift got We’re going with the fun. This was a big year for the “Kanyed” at the 2009 MTV song here. While the intro is Black Keys, and the Academy Video Music Awards, she a little too Broadway for our has been kind to the Ohio received a lifetime guaranliking, that chorus really is a duo before, but more for cattee of being nominated for perfect audio snapshot of egories like Best Alternative something at every awards 2012, isn’t it?

This is the one that fun. actually will win, and when they skip up to the podium to collect their award, that chorus will sound great blasting over the speakers.

You read the nominees, and “Call Me Maybe,” is totally in your head! Not bad, right? Think about how long it took you to get sick of it. Not until at least the ninth B-grade YouTube parody. That is quality songwriting: catchy without pissing you off!

Will “Call Me Maybe” win song of the year? Tune in to the Grammys on Sunday at 8 p.m. on CBS to find out.


Like we’ve already established, the Academy has a soft spot for the Black Keys. This is their big one this year.

Frank Ocean topped every critical best-of list this year and the guy is almost single-handedly pushing R&B into the future. And “channel ORANGE” is a great listen from start to finish.

Ed Sheeran? What billionaire decided this acoustic kid is important all of a sudden? And how much did said billionaire have to shell out to allow the Olympics to have him front Pink Floyd for “Wish You Were Sheeran Here”?

The nominees in this category are hard to argue with, but what’s easy to argue with is that the ladies were snubbed! Where’s Taylor Swift’s “Red”? While the Grammys are not a popularity contest, “Red” was the second biggest-selling album of 2012, behind only another lady, Adele, who happened to do pretty well for herself at the Grammys last year.

Sunday will be a fun. night at the Grammys


They are young and their 2012 single set the world on fire They’re also pumped to play the show they used to watch as little kids


ack Antonoff isn’t exactly a stranger to attention. The New Jerseyraised musician found some success with his band Steel Train and — let’s gossip a little — he once dated high school classmate Scarlett Johansson. But last year, the explosion of “Some Nights,” the album by his “other” band, fun., netted an astounding six Grammy nominations and an invitation to play the awards. “Performing, that’s just the icing on the cake. My favorite thing to do growing up was to watch the

performances on the Grammys,” says Antonoff. The song that catapulted fun. — which also includes Andrew Dost and Nate Ruess — to global fame was “We Are Young.” The brooding pop anthem also garnered some famous fans, including Beyonce. “It feels amazing to be recognized by fellow artists that you appreciate,” says Antonoff. “It’s like a circle of inspiration that goes around. To imagine that someone who inspired us to make music is also listening to our music

is an incredible moment. All the people we’ve gotten to meet this last year, it makes you feel a bit more connected to music.” And connecting is important for Antonoff. “The truth is that it can be lonely out there making music,” the 28-year-old says. “There are more and more people that do it, and the more that we can talk to bands and artists of this generation the more comfortable we feel in our skins with what we do.” Linda Laban

Antonoff, far right, says to be able to perform on Sunday is just the icing on the cake.

Fun. little tricks Antonoff says that making music isn’t all, um, fun and games: “There are downsides to everything. Sometimes when you love

something and are passionate about it, it really has the power to drag you down. I almost died when we were making our album because I was working every day in the studio, not eating, fly-

ing all over the country doing shows. There’s a lot of reality to what we do. But as you get older or you reach a different level, you learn so much, you learn little tricks to get by.”

This guy is great for a chat, and we’re happy to chew the fat. But he did just co-star with Charlie Sheen, who plays the titular character in Schwartzman’s new film, “A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III” — a famous graphic designer whose boozing and womanizing leads him to trouble. So shoe care aside, we had to ask: was Schwartzman ever offered some tiger blood on set? “No, I wasn’t offered any of that. It never came up. Maybe I don’t exude that type of thirst,” he says dismissively, before enthusing about the troubled actor whose private life has of recent years eclipsed the attention given to his acting work. “When you talk to him, he talks in the most incredible way — just sort of poetic and goes on these tangents that are incredible and beautiful,” Schwartzman says. “He’s so bright and he’s really inspiring to be around. He’s a great actor. A.

“A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III” is in theaters Friday.

Jason Schwartzman will be appearing in the district run by Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) in an upcoming episode of NBC’s “Parks and Recreation.” “It was the best. I’m such a fan of that show and when I found out that I was going to be on it, I could not believe it. ... You walk onto that set and it’s everything you want it to be.” GETTY IMAGES

MAGINE a theatrical experience so profound, so inspiring, it touches your soul. Let Shen Yun take you on a journey through 5,000 years of divinelyinspired culture: A journey where the virtues of ancient China, the world’s finest dancers, a unique East-West orchestra, and dazzling animated backdrops converge in one spectacular performance.

Shen Yun cannot be seen in China today, where traditional culture has been mostly destroyed under communist rule. Yet, Shen Yun has become a global cultural sensation, bringing the virtues and wisdom of traditional Chinese culture to millions of people across four continents.

“It was an extraordinary experience... the level of skill, but also the power of the archetypes and the narratives were startling. It was exquisitely beautiful.” — Cate Blanchett, Academy Award-winning actress

“It’s superb. I am going to mention it on the news, because I think it is a great performance and people should see it.” — Ernie Anastos, Emmy Award-winning news anchor

BATEMAN’S HAPPILY ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT “Identity Thief” hits theaters Friday.

The star explains why he doesn’t mind playing the straight man and insists that his manhood is not mangled (we’ll explain everything)


eing the straight man in a comedy can be a thankless job, but Jason Bateman has no problem with that. His latest, “Identity Thief,” finds him taking on Melissa McCarthy’s con woman. Plus, this spring he gets to reprise his best-loved straight man role as putupon Michael Bluth in “Arrested Development” when the cult hit returns with new episodes on Netflix. Still, if you've got a more outlandish comedy role in mind, he's willing to listen. Do you find it at all insulting to be asked how hard it is to keep a straight face opposite someone like Melissa McCarthy?

No, actually, I’ve never taken it that way. That’s tough to do, and I fail miserably at it repeatedly, especially with Melissa.

Was it Melissa or writer Craig Mazin who kept adding in jokes about you having mangled junk in “Identity Thief”?

Well, Craig’s pretty filthy. Craig wrote a script that didn’t need any ad-libbing whatsoever to make it fun-

Now in theaters ‘Identity thief’ Grade: –—˜™š There is suspension of disbelief and then there’s stretching the limits of believability. And then there is “Identity Thief.” Movies don’t have to make perfect

Q&A You’ve made quite a career of playing the straight man, but have you been looking for parts beyond that type?

Yeah, I mean, I would enjoy doing that. Send them. I’ll read them and do them. But I get most of my opportunities doing what people have seen me do before, and I don’t think that’s too dissimilar from most actors. You kind of get offered what people expect to see you in. So it’s up to me to start to steer the ship in another direction if I want some changes. And I do, every once in a while. ny, and so we didn’t do a lot of that. ... Craig Mazin did a really, really good job.

So he’s the one obsessed with you having messed-up junk?

He loves my junk. Or he loves my messed-up junk. He wants bad things to happen to it because I won’t give it to him.

sense. But the plot twists here simply don’t work. For one thing, simply canceling the stolen credit cards lacks comedic possibilities, but it would have been the right thing to do and it would have spared us this mostly unfunny “comedy.” RICHARD CROUSE

‘Side Effects’ Grade: –—˜™š

Q&A Are you the only Bluth family member to appear in every new episode of “Arrested Development”? I believe that is true. I haven’t seen them, he’s still editing them, but that was the goal when Mitch [Hurwitz] and I talked about these episodes early on. Any word on returning guest stars? I think Mitch has already said that a few people are coming back. I think he’s mentioned Carl Weathers and Henry Winkler and ... who else did he mention? James Lipton and Andy Richter. There’s many more. And then his ideas for the movie are just insane. So hopefully Act II and Act III will happen, which is the movie. I can’t wait to see what he does with all this footage.

If this is in fact to be Steven Soderbergh’s final film as a director released in theaters, he’s going out on a pretty good note. The twisty, intrigue-filled plot — which we can’t go into too much detail about because spoilers abound — has an engaging neoHitchcock vibe. The real highlight here is the engaging and electric Jude Law. NED EHRBAR

Things to expect from Jenny McCarthy’s new late-night show

Outspoken celebs

“We don’t have preinterviews, so I make it really candid for the celebs to come on and just hang out for a half hour. I ask some pretty some insane questions. It kinda takes you on a wild ride.”

Actual conversation

“I try to have a back-andforth kind of a thing instead of a question-andanswer. [I go] into a little tidbit story about myself, just to kind of bring in a conversation, and then slide in, like, ‘Oh, what

Who she’s not Chelsea Handler “The ways we are similar is that we’re female and that we’re very honest, but our sense of humor and our styles are a lot different. I’m a little bit more like goofy, Monty Python, and she’s more sarcastic and dry. I think you’ll really see a difference.”

Man-on-the-ground interviews (literally) “I do this kind of signature thing which I call my ‘groundbreaking interview.’ I drag one of [the guests] down and we lay on a shag carpet and suck lollipops and we’re literally just having conversation. It’s the most delicious part of the show for me because celebrities really open up

Oprah “I don’t think anyone could ever try to even be close to Oprah. I just want to be me. If I try to be anything else, I lose. In [this] generation, everyone demands authenticity, and this is a smart audience: They can smell bulls— a mile away. You need to be your authentic self in order to be a success.”

lot of people still hold back, and this really does give me a platform to open them up a little bit.”

Unlikely duos

“The Jenny McCarthy Show” premieres Friday, Feb. 8, at 10:30 p.m. on VH1.


“I want to make sure everyone’s really oddballs together — there’s just something so fascinating about that. So [on our premiere] we’ve got Joseline Hernandez from ‘Love & Hip Hop’ — she is this wild-ass chick on the show so I love the riskiness of that — and I put her with Josh Groban.”

The confident choice

‘Picnic’ No matter who you are, it takes a lot of courage to bring your date to a play where Sebastian Stan spends half the time onstage shirtless and gleaning with sweat. Here he plays a down-onhis-luck drifter who falls for a small town’s most prized bachelorette. This non-musical Broadway play offers an engaging storyline about completely impractical love. We won’t tell you how that seemingly doomed affair turns out, but we will guarantee that you’ll earn major points for being bold enough to stare at Stan while sitting next to your SO. www.round

‘Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?’

‘The Mystery of Edwin Drood’

This production showcases theater’s most dysfunctional husband and wife as they bait a newly married duo over a long night of cocktails — all in the name of pushing their rutted relationship to the next level. Despite the epic levels of gamesmanship to which this particular pair have taken their matrimony, the play’s still recognizably romantic in a way that many longtime lovers will understand. www.virginiawoolf

Isn’t it great at the start of a relationship, when there’s still a lot of, well, mystery? If you’re getting to know someone new, a musical comedy will let you relax and laugh together. With audience participation and surprise endings that change every night, there’s plenty within this convoluted plot for you to talk about. And regardless of the twists and turns this choose-yourown-adventure might take, rest assured that every performance is going to end in a love song. www.roundabout

“Once” is likely to hit the mark for even the hard-to-please theatergoer. Romantic and haunting, the story follows musicians who realize they each bring out just what the other needs most. If all else fails, there’s a bar right onstage so you can grab a glass of wine to smooth over any misgivings. But in our opinion, if your date doesn’t like “Once,” you should probably just reconsider the relationship. This is also one where it might be hard to score tickets — but if you can, you really can’t go wrong.

Checking in with some of Hollywood’s biggest names to see what they’ve been up to — in their own words, in 140 characters or fewer. Today, Ewan McGregor has some notes for the “Impossible” publicity team, Rose McGowan doesn’t trust TV ratings, John Cusack has lots of questions and Olivia Wilde has interesting habits. @mcgregor_ewan Keep seeing #JacktheGiantSlayer posters everywhere. More than can be said for #TheImpossible. Zero posters there! Shame. @rosemcgowan Does anyone know ANYONE with a Nielsen ratings box?

Talking points

THE WORD Dorothy Robinson’s take on the world of gossip

The Word quiz: Celebrities and their pseudonyms It’s going to be a snowy weekend, folks. So The Word did some digging to create a little quiz for you on celebrities and their pseudonyms.

Willis doesn’t blame the cinema

Bruce Willis, star of many bullet-ridden films, thinks it’s a mistake to try to link violence in entertainment with real-life shootings like the recent incidents in Aurora, Colo., and Newtown, Conn. “No one commits a crime because they saw a film.

Despite her ongoing legal troubles and reports of her being difficult to work with, Lindsay Lohan insists she’s keeping calm and carrying on. So what’s her secret? “Family,” she tells E! News. “You can't get through anything without the family.

Top that, gentlemen.

During a Twitter chat for clothing retailer H&M, the soccer star acknowledged his love for the interesting footwear choice when a fan asked which sneakers were his favorite. “That would have to be my current Adidas boots,” Beckham replied. “They are pink, which I chose because of [baby daughter] Harper.” Beckham also revealed that he expects his family will be spending a “huge amount of time in the U.S. in the future” despite a recent move back to England.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last September I had the pleasure to visit Istanbul, and I was so taken by the interior design, the Blue Mosque, the architecture and history. I took tons of pictures. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m originally from Ukraine, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never seen anything like it. So we started with that. We were also inspired by Phil Frost â&#x20AC;&#x201D; heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a contemporary artist. What we loved about him is the way he layered texture. He would have a white paint â&#x20AC;&#x201D; almost graffiti-like artwork â&#x20AC;&#x201D; layered on top of old graphics that were absolutely breathtaking.

Letters Shoveling is snow reason for bad manners I think we as a community should try something new with this coming storm. When shoveling your cars, how about instead of making a huge pile in front of the car and in back of the car, burn a few extra calories and dump the snow in the yard of the house you’re parked in front of. This clears up room in the street for parking — and then you wont have to fight about “my parking spot.” Because the streets are public, and snow piles in the street, when added up, take up at least 10 spots that could be used.

Horoscope Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 19. From time to time, you could be showered with more material opportunities than usual. Be both alert and receptive to any new ideas that come along. Pisces Feb. 20-March 20. This might be one of those days when it’s OK to toot your own horn to attract support for a fresh idea. Blow your bugle loud and clear. Aries March 21-April 19. This could be a good day to enhance your financial wherewithal. If you know of anything you can do that would open such doors, do it now. Taurus April 20-May 20. Most of your associates had better step aside when they see you

ing the Constitution. The Constitution is the “Supreme Law of the Land.” Surprisingly, it is not directed at “we, the people,” but at the government. Thus, Article 1, Section 8 is the part that enumerates or specifies one by one what “Congress shall have power” to do. Clause 2 gives Congress the power “to borrow money on the credit of the United States.” But nowhere is the Congress or the president given the power to LEND money. And Congress and the president can have the power to do something ONLY if the Constitution specifically enumerates that power. A fundamental principle of Constitutional law maintains that anything “repugnant to the Constitution is null and void.” Thus, when the Congress lends money to ANYONE, whether it’s General Motors, Solyndra or “needy” college students, these loans are “repugnant” to the constitution, or “unconstitutional,” and are therefore null and void. And the borrowers cannot be liable for repayment. So when universities sue needy students for repayment of “federal Perkins loans,” those needy student merely have to tell the judge that they don’t have to repay since they are unconstitutional and are therefore “null and void” at the get-go. Next case!

coming, because once you get on a roll, there will be no stopping you — regardless of what’s in your way. Gemini May 21-June 20. You will have no trouble accomplishing whatever you set your mind to. Obstacles will melt away in the face of your energetic momentum. Enjoy the ride. Cancer June 21-July 22. Putting yourself out for others without hesitation will make you feel good, mostly because you won’t make those people feel obligated to you in the process. Leo July 23-Aug. 22.

Sagittarius Nov. 23-Dec. 21. Because you unselfishly desire to help another, your efforts could bear large fruit. As a result, you could receive some

extra rewards that you didn’t seek. Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19. Someone you recently met is very anxious to get together to discuss a matter that he or she believes could be of interest. A meeting might be planned.

Islanders trade for goalie Thomas Tim Thomas is a New York Islander. When he plays is anybody’s guess. The Islanders acquired Thomas from the Boston Bruins late Thursday afternoon in exchange for a conditional second-round

draft pick in 2014 or 2015. He has a career 196-12145 record with a 2.48 goals against average and .921 save percentage in 378 regular season games. “We traded for an asset, and it gives us some


Goals against average for Thomas in the 2011 playoffs, when the Bruins won the Stanley Cup

flexibility moving forward,” Islanders general manager Garth Snow said prior to last night’s game against the Rangers at the Garden. “Tim is obviously a world-class goaltender with a great résumé.”

Snow added that the trade was something he and Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli “talked about at length.” Denis Gorman


Who stays? The Giants have to weigh who they can cut with who they are going to compete with going forward. So who should the team keep going into next season?


next to go?

S Antrel Rolle Why: Rolle is not the

Giants have already cut three veteran players But if they are going to re-sign stars, New York will have to cut more salary The Giants wasted no time in getting down to business this offseason. Just two days after the Super Bowl, they cut veteran linebacker Michael Boley and followed that up a day later with star Ahmad Bradshaw and Chris Canty. The team has many free agents though, including Victor Cruz, Will Beatty and Kenny Phillips. Metro

looks at who else should be cut sooner rather than later:

can’t waste money on a veteran who is a backup at this point.

RT David Diehl Why: Diehl, 33, has spent

CB Terrell Thomas Why: Thomas hasn’t

his entire 10-year career with the Giants. In seven of them he has started 16 games. But last year he played in 13 and started just 10, as he was moved to right tackle. The team needs to sign Beatty and

played in two years, with serious knee injuries. Thomas has a salary bonus of $6 million due in March, so it’s hard to see them keeping a player who has barely played under such a large deal.

MLB in brief

METS. It’s not as exciting as

Michael Bourn, but the Mets did come to an agreement with a free agent Thursday morning. According to CBS Sports, the team has come to a oneyear agreement with relief pitcher Brandon Lyon. It is still pending a physical. Lyon, 33, has spent time variably between closing and in a set-up role for five different teams.

CB Corey Webster Why: Unlike Thomas,

Webster has played and played well over his eightyear career, all spent in blue. He played well enough to earn a five-year, $43 million deal in 2008. But with only one year left, cutting him this offseason would save the team $7.25 million on their cap. That’s big money saved. MARK OSBORNE

player he was when the Giants signed him to a five-year, $37 million deal in 2010. He has two years remaining, though exactly how much money is left is unclear after he restructured the deal in 2011. It’s more than $6 million, though, which is a lot for a 30-year-old safety. Yet, as the unquestioned leader of the defense, he needs to return in 2013. DT Justin Tuck Why: Speaking of de-

fensive leaders, Tuck is also a player who could be axed. Tuck’s base salary is $4.5 million (so his cap number is higher), but the defensive lineman hasn’t had much impact re-cently. He only has nine combined sacks since 11.5 in 2010, but the team needs bodies on the line. METRO/MO


Mets sign Lyon to one-year deal

Lyon has made at least 60 appearances in six of the last seven seasons. He was injured in 2011.

Lyon pitched well as a set-up man for both Houston and Toronto last season. Between the two teams, he had a 3.88 ERA

and 63 strikeouts in 61 innings pitched. Lyon had 26 saves with the Diamondbacks in 2008 and 20 saves with the Astros in 2010. He



has a career ERA of 4.14, but it’s 3.59 over the past six seasons with a 2-to-1 strikeoutto-walk ratio over that time. Lyon will likely serve as a set-up man for Frank Francisco, who manager Terry Collins confirmed Wednesday will begin the season as closer. METRO

Cervelli will discuss Bosch in days to come YANKEES. Catcher Francisco Cervelli has yet to speak

with reporters about appearing on the list of names connected to performance-enhancing drug dealer Anthony Bosch, but says he will comment on the situation next week, once spring training officially opens. Cervelli, who will be competing for the starting job in camp, released a statement on Tuesday saying he had consulted Bosch about a foot injury and had only purchased legal supplements from the doctor.

Gregg Williams reinstated, joins Titans It didn’t take long for Gregg Williams to find work after his seasonlong suspension by the NFL. The no-longerblackballed defensive coordinator was hired as an assistant by the Titans immediately after being reinstated by commissioner Roger Goodell. Williams was suspended indefinitely by the league for running a bounty program as a coach with the Saints. METRO

In the news

Hernandez signs deal with M’s Yankee fans can once and for all put to rest any hopes of trading to Felix Hernandez. The 2010 AL Cy Young winner signed a seven-year, $175 million extension on Thursday. The deal makes Hernande the highest-paid pitcher in MLB history. Hernandez would not have been a free agent until after the 2014 season, but trades had been rumored for years.
