Epidemic. More NYC women are dying while giving birth A report from the New York Women’s Foundation shows women in New York are 30 percent more likely to die during childbirth than 12 years ago, the NY Daily News reported. In the 1990s, the maternal mortality rate for black women was 40 per 100,000 live births.

Last year, there were 79 deaths to every 100,000 live births. The rate for white women remained steady over that period. According to the report, Brooklyn is the “epicenter” of new HIV diagnoses for women, with 32 percent of diagnoses living in Kings County. DANIELLE TCHOLAKIAN

‘Bros’ spoofs hipsters and HBO’s ‘Girls’ in Web serial Hipsters. The show gives a male Williamsburg perspective to the hit HBO show. What could possibly go wrong when clean-cut bros hop on the L train and venture to Brooklyn in search of hipster girls? Hilarity ensues, as demonstrated in a new Web series inspired by the HBO show “Girls” and created by a Williamsburg veteran. Video editor Anthony DiMieri, 25, had written a sitcom about 20-something guys living in New York City in 2010, but when “Girls” premiered, the idea for a parody colliding two stereotyped

subcultures just clicked. “When I saw ‘Girls,’ I thought, ‘Holy crap, this is really close to what I was doing,’” DiMieri said. Thus, “Bros” was born. He did a casting call in December and posted it on YouTube earlier last week. DiMieri has received plenty of feedback regarding “Bros,” including some criticism about poking fun at “Girls.” And the people behind the show’s inspiration have already taken notice of “Bros.” The official Twitter account for “Girls” started following DiMieri. “That was a big deal because it was like, ‘OK, the people at HBO are watching this,’” DiMieri said.

State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli is on a mission to find the owners of $12 billion in unclaimed money.

City Councilman Daniel Dromm will introduce two bills today to regulate solitary confinement in New York City jails. One bill calls on the Department of Correction to file comprehensive reports on solitary confinement, and the second calls for an end to the practice of putting people returning to jail into solitary confinement to complete time owed from their previous period of incarceration. The New York City Jails Action Coalition is also pushing for rules that would prohibit the DOC from putting people with

mental and physical disabilities, juveniles and young people in solitary confinement, and narrow the allowable reasons for using solitary confinement so that it is only used to prevent violent conduct among prisoners. They also want to increase the amount of time prisoners in solitary confinement get to spend outside of their cells daily.

Subway death

Cuffed. Police suspect teen set blaze that displaced 27 in Bronx

A 19-year-old Bronx woman who was having an argument with her mother has been charged in connection with the massive apartment building fire over the weekend that left nearly 30 people homeless. The fire started early on Saturday morning. Princess Martinez allegedly lit a mattress on fire during a fight with her mother inside their fifth floor apartment at 2254 Cedar Ave. in University Heights, the New York Post reports. Martinez then left the apartment and bolted the door shut, according to the Post. Her mother escaped unharmed from the building, but the fire quickly grew to a three-alarm blaze that tore through a number of apartments on the fifth and sixth floors of the building. Six firefighters were treated for injuries after battling with the blaze.

‘Iron Lady’ Margaret Thatcher dead at 87

Long-term rule. Thatcher led her party to three election victories, governing from 1979 to 1990.

Margaret Thatcher, the “Iron Lady� who transformed Britain and inspired conservatives around the world by radically rolling back the state during her 11 years in power, died yesterday following a stroke. She was 87. A grocer’s daughter with a steely resolve, she was loved and loathed in equal measure as she crushed trade unions, privatized vast swathes of British industry, clashed with allies in the Euro-

pean economic bloc and fought a distant and improbable war to recover the Falkland Islands from Argentinian invaders. She struck up a close relationship with U.S. President Ronald Reagan in the Cold War, backed President George H.W. Bush during the 1991 Gulf War and declared that Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev was a man she could “do business with.� “Very few leaders get to change not only the political landscape of their country but of the world. Margaret was such a leader. Her global impact was vast,� said Tony Blair, whose term as Labour prime minister from 1997 to 2007, he acknowledged, owed a debt to the former leader of his conservative oppo-

Opinion: Thatcher reinvented Britain

Margaret Thatcher at the Tory Party Conference in Blackpool. GETTY IMAGES

To say Margaret Thatcher was a divisive figure is perhaps the understatement of the year. She transformed the fortunes and global standing of my native U.K. But the social damage caused, in some parts of the country, by her policies remains to this day. In the late 1970s, when she became prime minister, Britain was sick. Unions dictated policy to government. The pre-Thatcher government had to limit the work week to three days because of power cuts caused by nationwide strikes. Many of my teenage years were spent in darkness as electricity was cut off frequently. We had a choice of two TV stations; if you wanted a telephone installed, you had to wait for weeks before the nationalized ser-

vice would respond. Britain had to go cap in hand to the International Monetary Fund for a bailout. Then Maggie arrived. A bonfire of regulation ensued and, amid much violence, she smashed the unions. The economy boomed, we became a nation of shareholders and property owners. We got national pride back when we kicked the Argentinians out of the Falkland Islands, and for the first time in decades the world listened to Britain. She terrified and inspired fellow heads of government in equal measure. Europe was no match for her. Ronald Reagan found a soulmate in her. Thanks to Maggie, Britain was back. But there was a dark side. Heavy industries — nationalized and subsi-

dized — were closed by the Thatcher government with ruthless determination. The resulting unemployment was a national tragedy — working-class areas suffer to this day. Generational unemployment has resulted. Crime, drug use and poor standards of aspiration and education followed. Britain needed Thatcher’s surgery, but the cure was almost as bad as the disease. What is indisputable is that few modern politicians, anywhere in the world, will ever match her legacy. She was a woman of strength and conviction, for good or ill; and the gray men and women of today’s politics are pygmies by comparison.

Icons. For Thatcher and Reagan, it was a ‘special relationship’ It was ideological love at first sight for Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan, who made the most unlikely but dominant international pairing of the late 20th century, triumphing sideby-side in the Cold War. Thatcher, who died yesterday in London, defied illness to attend Reagan’s funeral in Washington in 2004. For her inscription in a book of condolences, she chose: “Well done

thou good and faithful servant,” a biblical quotation that reflected the Christian faith they shared but also the tough capitalist principles they embraced at a time when both believed the war against Soviet communism was one that could be lost. The words are from a parable in St. Matthew’s Gospel, and are used to praise a servant who has been given money by his master that he doubles through investment, in contrast to a “slothful” servant who buries his gift and makes no profit. Both leaders became not just national, but world icons, representatives of a resolute conservatism that polarized their own countries, committed to unambiguous economic theories that countered what they saw as the fuzzy principles of socialism.

Jay-Z and Beyonce’s anniversary trip to Cuba is raising eyebrows with a few Florida politicians. “We represent a community of many who have been deeply and personally harmed by the Castro regime’s atrocities,” Florida Representatives Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Mara Dias-Balart wrote in a letter to the Office of Foreign Assets Control. But late yesterday Reuters revealed that the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control licensed the trip as a “people-to-people” cultural visit. Does that mean Jay-Z went to recruit athletes for his sports agency? Maybe to borrow some beats? Or did he just want to use the best cigars on the planet to roll a blunt? ADVERTISEMENT

Funicello dies at age 70

Lohan is ‘in a very dark place’ Lindsay Lohan infamously scheduled her upcoming 90-day rehab stint to start next month so that she can hit up the Coachella music festival starting this weekend, but at least one friend thinks she should skip it. “I fear for her life if she goes to the festival,” Danish promoter Claus Hjelmbak tells Radar Online. “Lindsay is in a very dark place right now, and I’m absolutely scared for her life. Coachella is the last place she needs to be.” Right: Drugs, desert and Lindsay Lohan. What could possibly go wrong?

Before there was Britney, before Xtina, there was Annette Funicello, the queen of the original “Mickey Mouse Club.” The former child star, who segued her “Mickey” stardom to the big screen in films such as “Beach Blanket Bingo,” died on Monday in Bakersfield, Calif., due

to complications from multiple sclerosis. She was 70. According to reports, Funicello had been in a coma for years; her family decided to take her off of life support.

Barrymore on being a mom Drew Barrymore is learning a lot now that she’s a mom. “I know it seems like I do everything, but there’s so much I had to give up. Things have to go, and that’s unfortunate,” she tells Us Weekly. “Unfortunately, I was raised in this, like, generation of like, ‘Women can have it all,’ and I don’t think you can. I think some things fall off the table. The good news is, what does stay on the table becomes much more important.”

Lianne La Havas: A ‘Big Enough’ love Music. The British singer/songwriter has instrumental skills to match soulful pipes. England spawns smart, lovely songbirds like Adele and Lily Allen, and its latest ingenue is Lianne La Havas. The debut from the 23-year-old singer/songwriter — “Is Your Love Big Enough?” — features jazz-soul production and haunting pipes. Comparisons to Norah Jones or Lauryn Hill are to be expected. But La Havas’ style is remarkably original and uplifting. “It’s quite easy to write about your pain, but you should write about your happiness as well,” she says. “It’s just as strong a relationship.” Guitar lines alternate from harp-like tinkles to rhythmic slide on songs like “Empty” and “No Room For Doubt” and bass-y riffs on her powerful “Forget.” “It’s quite an eclectic record,” the singer says. “There’s an overall theme of love. The sounds are

The singer says that the title track of her album features a different type of strong relationship than you might think. “My single — ‘Is Your Love Big Enough?’ — is not about any of my boyfriends,” she says, bucking the scorned-woman trend. “It’s written about a great time I had when I was in New York.”

How to ‘Screw Everyone’ — with a pen firmly in hand Books. Ophira Eisenberg’s rollicking new memoir details how jumping from one guy to another helped her say “yes” to marriage.

One lunch helps feed 40 NYC kids. One company helps feed thousands. Start a Skip Lunch Fight Hunger team and raise money to help feed NYC’s hungry kids and their families this summer. A small donation, just the cost of lunch, can help feed 40 kids.

Ophira Eisenberg is a stand-up comedian, writer and host of NPR’s new weekly trivia show, “Ask Me Another.” But she is also quite the expert in sleeping around. Or she was — until she met “the one.” Being on the prowl? Just practice for monogamy. “I think it’s my large sample size and many experiences that led me to the right guy,” she says in her new memoir, “Screw Everyone.” What does NPR think about an employee writing a book about sleeping around? I’m certain almost everyone at NPR has had sex, so they are OK with it. Almost everyone. Your story has a happy ending — a nice marriage — but do you have any regrets from your stay in Trollop-ville? Nope. In hindsight I’m glad I let myself go for it. I think it’s my large sample size and many experiences that led me to the right guy. I think everyone looks back and wishes they could have treated themselves or a situation a bit better. I couldn’t always laugh at myself then. Thank God I can laugh at myself now. Why are so many comedians terrible in the sack? Not that we’re

asking from experience or anything. Of course — it’s a friend of a friend who wants to know, right? I’m a comedian and from what I’ve heard, I’m pretty decent — at least from the comment cards I’ve received. But if I had to take a guess, it’s because they’re going for the laugh. My advice is that if you don’t like what’s going in the sack, feel free to heckle.

Laura Mvula’s anthemic single, “That’s Alright,” is a declaration against all of the unrealistic beauty standards promoted in magazines that make women second-guess themselves: “I will never be what you want, and that’s alright. Cause my skin ain’t light and my body ain’t tight. And that’s alright.” So it’s not surprising that the Brit, who is often described as this generation’s answer to Nina Simone, would be equally secure in her personal style. As she prepares to go on tour for her new album, “Sing to the Moon,” she opens up about her natural hair, crush on Vivienne Westwood and weakness for big heels.

On styling around her natural hair “My hair is very short, so it’s important for me to feel

Her ultimate fashion fantasy “I dream about Vivienne Westwood. When I was getting married, I spent a lot of time dreaming about her dresses. But soft and feminine. I like to think I’m a warm person. I like to soften my image as much as possible so that my short hair isn’t overly strong or intimidating.”

Figuring out her look “I’m an explorer. My dad used to say that I was always the kid in the wardrobe trying on ridiculous pieces together and thinking somehow that they would work. I think a lot

to have this kind of [professional] opportunity makes [her clothes] more attainable. I’ve worn some of her pieces before. They’re so elegant, pretty and feminine.” about my style and my image, which is really important to me, even though I do feel like a baby when it comes to fashion. I still feel very much at the beginning of it all.”

Her stage persona vs. an off-duty one

“I think the two go alongside each other. Even things like being practical, which isn’t my strongest point as a person. Sometimes I’m standing at a keyboard, and I want to wear my big heels. I love my big heels. But even though I might have a specific image and vision in my head. It also has to be comfortable for me to wear. I think what I wear will change as I work with bigger ensembles. At the moment simplicity is really important to me. I want to come off the stage feeling comfortable, like I’ve been able to move and not think about this wrap falling off my head or the length of my skirt.”

When syndicated parenting columnist Tracy Beckerman gave up her high-powered Manhattan TV career to focus on motherhood, she, her husband and their two young kids left their quintessential New York lifestyle behind for a different one in the Jersey suburbs. Her new life as a full-time mom, however, left Beckerman in a funk. “Lost in Suburbia: A Momoir: How I Got Pregnant, Lost Myself, and Got My Cool Back in the New Jersey Suburbs” tells the story of how the author found her groove in Jersey and learned how important a sense of humor is in raising a family. How did you decide to swap your city life for a suburban one, and what was the transition like? After I had my son and went back to my job as a writer and producer for the local news, I never expected that I was going to not really care about it anymore. I felt like I was missing out by not

being with my son. So we made the decision that I was going to quit my job. Then we realized that we couldn’t afford to stay in the city! So we moved to New Jersey. I didn’t know anybody, I didn’t have my job to define me anymore and I just sort of lost it. It made it tough to be comfortable in my new role. How did things begin to change? My low point is when I got stopped by a cop driving in my dumpy bathrobe. I thought, I’ve got to turn my life around! When

my kids went to school, I thought about what I could do that is just for me. One day my son came home from school and told me something funny that happened, and I wrote it down. [The story] came flooding out of me, and the local paper ran it. Soon after, two more papers expressed interest. I realized this was going to be my second act. Finding the humor in parenting made me so much happier. What should women in this situation keep in mind? If you defined yourself by your career, it can be very hard when all of a sudden your job title is Stay-AtHome Mom. You need something for yourself that’s not just about your kids — something just for you that you feel good about. I think you end up feeling happier, and it makes you a better parent.

PARENTING When Maya Silver was grappling with her mother’s breast cancer, she noticed that there weren’t many resources available for teens dealing with a sick parent. So she created her own, with the help of her dad, Marc, the author of “Breast Cancer Husband.” We asked the authors of “My Parent Has Cancer and It Really Sucks” about their new advice guide. You interviewed many teens for this book. Were there any recurring topics? Maya: Communication. We had a lot of teens say that their parents didn’t tell them right away or withheld information. That really made the teens feel betrayed. Communication is gonna vary from family to family, but it has to be there. Marc: Some families have family meetings, and that’s fine, but some

A new book goes straight to the source for advice — other teens.

HELP FOR WHEN MOM OR DAD IS SICK families don’t like meetings. Maybe your family works better just chatting in the car. Maybe leave a notebook where everybody goes, and the kids write their questions and the parents write their answers.

We often try to lend support by saying, “If you need anything, let me know.” But Maya, what are some concrete words or actions that you really appreciated? Maya: Just understanding. If I didn’t want to

that moment. Kids don’t want to be constantly reminded. Maya: Another thing is an artificial sense of compassion. You tell someone that your mom has a serious form of breast cancer and they’re like, “Oh, my grandma’s sick too.” You want to be like, “You have no idea.”

Did the expert advice you received match up with that of the teens? Marc: They emphasized that every kid’s gonna react differently, and that’s OK. The other thing that one expert talked about was this phrase “the tyranny of positive thinking.” We live in a society where everybody wants you to be upbeat all the time, [but] people aren’t like that. It’s perfectly normal to be upset.

No upside to legal pot If we legalize marijuana, it is because it is all about money. Marijuana is worse than cigarettes, and it contains chemicals called cannabinoids that affect the central nervous system and induce euphoria and anxiety. A long-term cannabis consumption WILL increase a person’s risk of mental illness. If marijuana is used while driving, it is likely to cause a vehicle collision; in addition, people will abuse it. Many people will make money from it, but others will get in trouble. ANDY BELLIZZI, VIA E-MAIL

Bikers need to follow the law Re: “Driver puts bad spin on cycling” (Metro, April 8) In the ’60s, we had a police officer come to our school to teach us bike safety. The first thing he said was that the only difference between bikes and cars

is that a bike is a vehicle that does not have a motor, so all road rules must be obeyed. Today bikers do not stop for a red light, ride against traffic, weave directly in front of cars and ride on the sidewalks. Some do not wear helmets or have a bell or a mirror on their bike. Yet they do not get stopped or fined for this. When did the road rules change that only cars must obey them? ROSE LA MAIDA, VIA E-MAIL

Scientists: Flights will get bumpier

Source: Scarborough R2 2012

Air travel. Turbulence will become more frequent and stronger, while CO2 emissions will more than double. Turbulence on transatlantic flights will become more frequent and severe by 2050 as carbon dioxide emissions rise, leading to longer journey times and increased fuel consumption, British scientists said in a study on Monday.

Light turbulence shakes the aircraft, but more severe episodes can injure passengers and cause structural damage to planes, costing around an estimated $150 million a year. Turbulence will be stronger and occur more often if carbon dioxide emissions double by 2050 as the International Energy Agency forecasts, scientists at the universities of Reading and East Anglia said in the study published in the journal Nature Climate Change. Detours to avoid strong patches of turbulence

would lengthen flight times, increasing fuel consumption, emissions and airport delays, which would ultimately drive up ticket prices, Paul Williams at the University of Reading and co-author of the report, told Reuters. Air travel is one of the fastest-growing sources of carbon dioxide emissions. “Aviation is partly responsible for changing the climate in the first place. It is ironic that the climate looks set to exact its revenge by creating a more turbulent atmosphere for flying,� Williams said. REUTERS

Knicks look for lucky No. 13 against Wizards NBA. The Knicks are not overlooking the Wizards after an early-season loss broke a previous win streak. When the Knicks host the Wizards tonight, the casual fan may think New York’s 13th-straight victory is already in the bag. But the Wizards (29-48) aren’t your average league dreg. Since point guard John Wall was reinserted into the lineup following the knee injury that forced him to miss the first 40 games, Washington is a very respectable 23-20 — with wins over New York, Brooklyn and Miami. Knicks head coach

Mike Woodson certainly does not take the Wizards lightly, and has repeatedly used that loss in Washington as a tool to keep his team sharp any time they play a lesser team. “We went flat,� Woodson said, recalling the loss. “We were just there thinking we were going to show up and come out of there with a win, and it just didn’t happen. It was awful across the boards, starting at the top with me.� The Wizards’ lone win in the series snapped a five-game Knicks winning streak, so it’s not out of the realm of possibility that Washington can upend favored New York again.

King finally earns trip to Hall of Fame NBA. Knicks legend Bernard King was named to the 2013 class of the Basketball Hall of Fame. The greatest scorer in Knicks history has finally scored a trip to the Basketball Hall of Fame. Bernard King, who played with the Knicks from 1982-87, was officially named to the Hall of Fame on Monday morning in the annual announcement during the Final Four in Atlanta. The 6-foot-7 forward is known not just as one of the best Knicks scorers of all time, but one of the finest pure scorers in league history. King spent only four of his 14 NBA seasons with the Knicks, but had some of his best seasons in New York. He led the league in scoring in 1984-85 with New York, posting 32.5

points per game in a season cut short by injury. He averaged 26.5 points and 5.2 rebounds per game and shot 54.3 percent from the field in his Knicks career. King was a four-time All Star, including twice with the Knicks. He finished in the Top 10 in scoring five times and is 25th all-time on the NBA scoring list. King is remembered fondly for the 198384 NBA playoffs when he averaged 34.8 points per game and scored 40 points in four straight games in the opening round against Detroit. He also averaged 29.1 points per game as he battled the Larry Bird-era Celtics to a seven-game series in the next round before bowing out. King was drafted by the Nets and spent three seasons in New Jersey — one in the final season of his career. The other inductees announced yesterday included Louisville coach Rick Pitino, former Knicks guard Richie Guerin, for-

Rutgers. Former AD Pernetti gets $1.2M severance, insurance

NFL. Former Rutgers star Davis rips his former coach Schiano

Rutgers Athletic Director Tim Pernetti resigned in shame last week. But he wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go away emptyhanded. The former AD stepped down under public and university pressure as a result of a videotape that surfaced showing menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball coach Mike Rice hurling basketballs â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and slurs â&#x20AC;&#x201D; at his players. But as a result of his firing, Pernetti will receive $1.2 million in salary, car payments, health insurance for two years and even an iPad and laptop. Pernetti originally saw the videotape of Rice in December, but only suspended the coach for three games. Once ESPN made the tape public, Pernetti came under fire. Pernetti blamed others at the university for not wanting to dismiss Rice in December. MARK OSBORNE

Tell us how you really feel, Anthony Davis. Davis signed a $37.3 million contract extension three days ago to keep the tackle with the 49ers for the next five years. But according to Davis, the highest draft pick in Rutgers history, his time with the Scarlet Knights under then head coach Greg Schiano did Pernetti / GETTY IMAGES
