3 things you need to know DICAPRIO FOUNDATION WOULD RETURN GIFTS IF FROM MALAYSIAN FUND
Leonardo DiCaprio’s charitable foundation would return gifts or donations made to him or his ventures if they were found to have come from Malaysian wealth fund 1MDB, which is being investigated on money laundering allegations, his representatives said. In his ﬁrst comment on the multinational probe into the fund, DiCaprio said he was cooperating with U.S. authorities to determine if money had come from questionable sources, according to the statement. In July a Hollywood production company was accused in a U.S. civil lawsuit of using $100 million that prosecutors said had been diverted from the 1MDB fund to ﬁnance DiCaprio’s 2013 ﬁlm “The Wolf of Wall Street.” REUTERS
RISING GASOLINE, RENTS PUSH US INFLATION HIGHER IN SEPTEMBER
U.S. consumer prices recorded their biggest gain in ﬁve months in September as the cost of gasoline and rents surged, pointing to a steady pickup of inﬂation that could keep the Federal Reserve on track to raise interest rates in December. The Labor Department said on Tuesday its Consumer Price Index increased 0.3 percent last month after rising 0.2 percent in August. In the 12 months through September, the CPI accelerated 1.5 percent, the biggest year-on-year increase since October 2014. The CPI rose 1.1 percent in the year to August. “The upward creep of prices weakens any argument against a rate increase in December,” said Anthony Karydakis, chief economic strategist at Miller Tabak in New York. “The economy is close to full employment and prices are starting to respond to that reality.” REUTERS
RIGHTS GROUPS REQUEST US PROBE POLICE USE OF FACIAL RECOGNITION
Fifty civil rights groups signed a letter asking the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate police use of facial-recognition databases, arguing the technology disproportionately aﬀects minorities and has minimal oversight. The request coincides with the release of a law school’s report concluding half of America’s adults have their images stored in at least one searchable facial-recognition database used by local, state and federal authorities and amid concern about law enforcement’s use of force against black men. Facial-recognition databases are used by police to help identify criminal suspects. They typically work by conducting searches of vast troves of known images, such as mug shots, and algorithmically comparing them with other images, such as those taken form a store’s surveillance cameras, that capture an unidentiﬁed person believed to be committing a crime.

Clinton vs. Trump: What to look for in the final presidential debate The debate is scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. ET. GARY KANE & AMANDA MIKELBERG @MetroNewYork email@example.com
Immigration, the Supreme Court and the economy are among the few designated talking points for the third and final presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. However, no one expects the matchup to adhere to the format. Viewers have watched the debates as they would a hockey game. They’re interested in who’s scoring points but prefer to see the gloves come off. The debate is scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. ET in Las Vegas. Pundits have ranked the first two debates as the most derisive in the history of modern American politics. Since the last debate on Oct. 9, both candidates have faced a slate of unpleasant developments:
More hacked emails Wikileaks continued to provide Trump supporters ammunition. The Trump campaign suggested that the most recent release of Clinton’s emails uncovered a quid pro quo deal between the State Department and FBI. Campaign officials argue the emails show that an FBI official offered to look into the reclassification of some Clinton emails in exchange for the State Department’s help in boosting the number of FBI agents in Iraq.
Trump accusers Trump insists his vulgar comments about women captured in a 2005 videotape were nothing but “locker room talk.” He argued he never made unwanted sexual advances toward any women. His denials prompted several women to go public with accusations that Trump had groped, kissed or improperly touched them.
Rigged election Trump has stepped up his claims that the presidential election is “rigged” against him. A recent Trump posting on Twitter: “Of course there is large scale voter fraud happening on and before election day.”
“SNL” Trump called for the cancelation of “Saturday Night Live” after the program ran another skit mocking his performance in the second debate. His tweet: “Watched ‘Saturday Night Live’ hit job on me. Time to retire the boring and unfunny show. Alec Baldwin portrayal stinks. Media rigging election!” The last debate’s unnerving side act — an emergency news conference called moments before the debate that assembled a crew of alleged Bill and Hillary Clinton abuse accusers — might be attempted again. Trump’s planted
distraction this time could be the mother of a man killed in the 2012 Benghazi attacks, Yahoo News reported. Pat Smith, the mother of Sean Smith, had given a speech at the Republican National Convention blasting Clinton and holding her responsible for her son’s death. Smith confirmed to Yahoo News that she will be attending the event and might be sitting in the front row. Trump’s strategy has worked only so far as to distract from the significant lead Clinton has opened up in a general poll (six-point lead) and in the key battleground states. A Washington Post study gives Clinton leads of 4 to 11 percentage points in New Hampshire, Virginia, Michigan, New Mexico, Colorado, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Georgia. Winning those states would put her comfortably ahead with a total of 304 electoral votes (270 needed to win the election).

One Vanderbilt to rise as NYC’s second tallest tower, breaks ground The tower will add 1.6 million square feet of modern office space to Midtown East.
Yesterday 6sqft brought you a time-lapse video showing an entire Midtown block being demolished to make way for the 1,401foot supertall One Vanderbilt. Now with a cleared site — plus $1.5 billion in construction financing secured — SL Green is ready to build anew, and this morning the developer held an official groundbreaking ceremony to mark the momentous occasion. Designed by the tall tower pros at Kohn Pedersen Fox Architects, One Vanderbilt will rise to become the secondtallest tower in NYC and the tallest tower in Midtown. However, unlike the city’s other skyscraper additions noted for their slim silhouettes, this tower will be a behemoth, occupying a full

block between Vanderbilt and Madison avenues and East 42nd and East 43rd streets; the site is also directly adjacent to Grand Central Terminal. According to SL Green, the tower will not only add 1.6 million
square feet of modern office space to Midtown East, but additionally host the city’s largest floor-to-ceiling windows (it is only 58 stories) and completely column-free floorplates. The project is also bringing with it
$220 million worth of infrastructure improvements, including direct subway access from the building, new transit entrances, retail space and public spaces. Given the scale and cost of the project
Mayor’s chopper ride from Brooklyn to Queens criticized Mayor Bill de Blasio’s reputation may be going into a tailspin again after reports surfaced about him taking a helicopter from Brooklyn to Queens on Friday to beat traffic. City Hall hasn’t revealed many details and denies that he was working out at the Park Slope YMCA before taking the ride. A representative said that he had “meetings he needed to attend,” according to the New York Daily News. The mayor choppered to a tech event in Long Island City where he was scheduled to speak.

When pressed by The New York Times on whether these meetings were personal or related to city business, spokesman Eric Phillips
decliined to elaborate. “I’m saying he had a series of meetings in Brooklyn, and I’m declining to make public the details of nonpublic
meetings,” he said. Phillips also told The New York Times that de Blasio’s helicopter trips are “infrequent,” and arranged by the mayor’s police detail. As a social media photo and video of the helicopter made the rounds, however, the ride sparked plenty of comments about the mayor — who has had a reputation for showing up late to scheduled appearances. Some went as far as calling it an abuse of power, while others understood his need to use the helicopter. CRISTABELLE TUMOLA
($3 billion total), One Vanderbilt is being pegged as the catalyst needed for Midtown East’s renaissance. Though located in the heart of Manhattan, outdated spaces have made it difficult to bring new
office and commercial tenants to the area. The hope is that the tower will inspire other building owners in the area to undertake renovations. Moreover, in August the city released their Midtown East rezoning proposal, a plan that could bring another 16 new towers to the area. “It’s gratifying to be breaking ground not just on this building, but on what it represents: a massive investment in our transit and pedestrian infrastructure, and a first step toward the future of East Midtown,” said Manhattan Borough President Gale A. Brewer. “When development is done carefully, collaboratively, and produces real investments in the public realm that improve the neighborhood, everyone wins.” Ground work on the site will continue into next year and construction on the tower itself is slated for the third quarter of 2017. The project is expected to wrap in 2020, and tenants will be allowed to move in once transit infrastructure is complete — a condition put in place by the city.
BRIEFS Retrial of Etan Patz’s accused killer could begin Wednesday The second trial of Pedro Hernandez in the May 1979 disappearance of 6-year-old Etan Patz could begin as soon as Wednesday, State Supreme Court Justice Maxwell Wiley said. Hernandez’s 10-week trial in 2015 ended with a hung jury, in which jurors voted 11-1 to convict him after 18 days of deliberation. After a tip surfaced in 2012, Hernandez was arrested and confessed on videotape to killing Patz after luring him into the basement of the SoHo bodega where he worked by offering him a soda. Hernandez, a teenager at the time, said that he choked the boy and disposed of his body two blocks away. Patz’s remains were never found.
Hernandez’s lawyers said that he has mental issues, and he was diagnosed with schizotypal personality disorder by a defense psychiatrist. Twelve jurors have been seated for the retrial, NY1 reported. The selection of six alternates began Tuesday. NIKKI M. MASCALI

SpareRoom CEO ‘speed dating’ for roommates for luxury West Village apartment Skills in “SpeedRoomating” may help you land a $1 a month Bleecker Street rental. KIMBERLY AQUILINA @KimESTAqui
They say you have seven seconds to make a first impression, so a few minutes is enough to find a roommate, right? SpareRoom CEO and founder Rupert Hunt announced earlier this month that he is looking for two roommates to share his luxury West Village apartment. Part of the process includes “SpeedRoommating” on Wednesday as he searches for flat mates. SpeedRoomating is SpareRoom’s version of speed dating, except instead of a sloppy good night kiss, you could end up with a roommate or a room. From 7 to 9 p.m. at The Winslow, Hunt will sit down and get to know people who are interested in paying $1 a month to live in his Bleecker Street apartment “When I first started sharing [an apartment], I

thought it was all about shared interests, but I found it comes down to rapport,” Hunt told Metro in a previous interview. If you aren’t one of the 6,000 applicants interested in Hunt’s apartment, you still have time to put your name in the hat (and maybe your name on the lease). Hunt has also invited some of the applicants to the event so he can meet
with them face-to-face. A spokesman for SpareRoom described the event as “a very casual setting at the bar where people can easily speak to anyone.” So bring ID. “I’m not after roommates who just want cheap rent,” Hunt wrote in the apartment listing. “You’ll need to genuinely want to share with me – for your benefit as much as mine.

BRIEFS 40 dead cats found frozen in Queens storage unit The winner of an auctioned storage unit in Queens bought into an unpleasant discovery: dozens of cat carcasses. About 40 dead cats were found in two freezers in the unit, authorities said. Police told CBS New York that the number of dead cats could increase because some felines were stuck together. Some carcasses were wrapped in paper and plastic bags. Others were stacked on top of each other. One skinned cat was found in an aluminum catering tray. The ASPCA took custody of the cats, but is waiting for the bodies to thaw before performing tests to determine how the felines died, according to the New York Daily News.
The man who won the auction paid $150 for the storage locker at American Self Storage in Long Island City. He called police after opening the freezers. The unit had a “horrendous death smell, rotting” once the freezers were opened, a police source told the Daily News. The source said oﬃcers had to change their clothing and shower because “the stench was stuck to their clothes.” Other items, including papers, clothing and sewing machines were also found in the unit. A 66-year-old Brooklyn woman had been renting the unit since 2014, ABC7 reported, but she stopped paying in July, so the unit went up for auction. Authorities said they will wait until necropsies are completed to determine if they
will press charges against the woman. ALEXIS SACHDEV

New York City college student died fighting for Islamic State: U.S. A New York City college student died last November fighting for Islamic State in Syria, where he had traveled earlier in the year with the assistance of an Arizona man he met online, according to U.S. prosecutors. The death of Samy Mohammed El-Goarany, who was 24 when he traveled to Syria, was disclosed in papers filed by prosecutors late on Monday in Manhattan federal court in a case against the Arizona man, Ahmed Mohammed El Gammal. The details came as prosecutors sought approval to introduce evidence at the Dec. 5 trial of El Gammal, who is charged with conspiring to provide material support to Islamic State by helping El-Goarany travel so he could join the militant group. The potential evidence includes a letter by ElGoarany that an unidentified person via an instant messaging platform provided one of El-Goarany’s relatives after saying he had been killed fighting in Syria. In the letter, El-Goarany informed the relative that “if you’re reading this then know that I’ve been killed in battle and am now with our Lord InshaAllah.” “We will win this war
one day, this war between Iman (Belief) and kufr (Disbelief) between Good and Evil,” the letter said, according to prosecutors. “And I will come back for you, with Allah’s permission I will come back for you.” El Gammal’s lawyer declined comment. He has pleaded not guilty. According to prosecutors, El-Goarany was a U.S. citizen who attended college in Manhattan and who by 2014 began expressing increased interest in militant forms of Islam. El-Goarany first contacted El Gammal in August 2014 after learning of online comments he posted supporting Islamic State, prosecutors said. They corresponded via encrypted messaging platforms, including one El-Goarany recommended by noting former National Security Agency contractor-turned-whistleblower Edward Snowden had used it, prosecutors said.

Review of New York Times’ wedding announcements shows common threads A Manhattan wedding sounds glamorous and romantic, but did you know most couples who wed in the city do so at the Manhattan Marriage Bureau. Looking for love? If you’re in your 30s, your name is Elizabeth or Michael and you’re a law associate who graduated from Harvard, love is right around the corner … or your announcement in The New York Times’ wedding section is imminent. Sapio, a free dating app, conducted a study by combing through wedding announcements published in The New York Times from Jan. 4, 2015 to July 3, 2016. The study isn’t necessarily
an indicator of love in the city, as the Times’ wedding section typically features the wealthy, wellknown or prominent in some way. “No one moves to New York to find love,” Erika Kaplan, a matchmaker with Three Day Rule, told Thrillist in June. “Men and women
both move here for careers over relationships,” she added. “They take education seriously. They are responsible, smart, confident and they want to be sure of who they are and where they are going before they pick a mate.” Maybe that’s why Sapio found that more brides and grooms are waiting until after the national average age to wed with brides holding off until age 32 and grooms waiting until they turn 34.

Yahoo profit beats Wall St., some analysts worry over effect of hack Tuesday’s results provided at least an initial indication that the data breach has not led to a quick exodus of Yahoo customers, as some had feared. Customer trends showed growth in pageviews and email usage, Yahoo said. Yahoo Inc. reported better-than-expected quarterly adjusted profit on Tuesday, a boost for the beleaguered company whose deal to sell its core business to Verizon Communications Inc has been shaken by a massive data breach. Verizon’s general counsel said last week that the hack, which affected at least 500 million email accounts in 2014, could have a material impact, possibly allowing
Verizon to withdraw from the $4.83 billion deal. Still, analysts were split on whether the results dispelled doubts about the deal going through. Yahoo said in a filing with securities regulators shortly before the breach was disclosed that it knew of no cyber risks, raising questions about whether Verizon was informed of the breach in a timely fashion. JMP Securities analyst Ronald Josey said it was too early to tell if the breach would cause lasting damage, and called customer trends “encouraging.” “The message here is email and messaging is a very sticky product and people want to get to their messages,” said Josey. But Fatemeh Khatibloo, a security analyst with Forrester Research, said the uptick in pageviews and email usage
could be the result of “500 million people trying to figure out if they’re exposed.” Any loss of users in the future, lawsuits related to the breach and a pending Federal Communications Commission vote that could limit how telecommunications companies can use customer data may encourage Verizon to try and back out of the deal, said Khatibloo. However, Scott Kessler, an analyst with CFRA Research, said the fact that Yahoo did not see an immediate decline in users was a sign the breach may not be a material adverse change that would affect the Verizon deal. “The bottom line here is from a fundamental operational and financial perspective, it doesn’t seem like much has changed at the company over the last quarter,” he said. Legal experts have

said Verizon would have to clear a high hurdle to prove that the breach amounted to a material adverse change that would allow it to pull out of the deal. REUTERS
Ex-sports marketing executive to plead guilty in FIFA bribe case A former sports marketing executive who was arrested last year in a U.S. corruption probe involving soccer’s global governing body FIFA is scheduled to plead guilty on Thursday, according to a court filing. The plea by Aaron Davidson, who headed the Miami-based unit of Brazilian sports marketing firm Traffic Group, was disclosed in a scheduling order filed in federal court in Brooklyn on Tuesday. A lawyer for Davidson did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Davidson was first charged in May 2015. He is one of 42 individuals and entities charged as part of a U.S. investigation that upended Zurich-based FIFA and the soccer world. Prosecutors have alleged the defendants engaged in schemes involving more than $200 million in bribes and kick-
backs that were sought and received by soccer officials for marketing and broadcasting rights to tournaments and matches. Prosecutors accused Davidson of participating in schemes to bribe soccer officials to secure millions of dollars in sports marketing contracts for Traffic. In total, 17 people and two companies have pleaded guilty, including the owner of Traffic, Brazilian José Hawilla. Davidson had been among seven defendants who meanwhile were set to face trial in November 2017. Prosecutors are continuing to seek the extradition of some of the other foreign defendants. Earlier on Tuesday, an Argentine judge denied a U.S. request to extradite father-and-son sports marketing team Hugo and Mariano Jinkis and former regional soccer chief Eduardo Deluca. REUTERS

The leader of Islamic State was reported to be among thousands of hardline militants still in the city, suggesting the group would go to great lengths to repel the coalition. Residents of Mosul said Islamic State was using civilians as human shields as Iraqi and Kurdish forces captured outlying villages in their advance on the jihadists’ stronghold. The leader of Islamic State was reported to be among thousands of hardline militants still in the city, suggesting the group would go to great lengths to repel the coalition. With attacking forces still between 12 and 30 miles away, residents reached by telephone said more than 100 families had started moving from southern and eastern suburbs most exposed to the offensive to more central parts of the city. Islamic State militants were preventing people fleeing Mosul, they said, and one said they directed some towards buildings they had recently used themselves. “It’s quite clear Daesh [Islamic State] has started

to use civilians as human shields by allowing families to stay in buildings likely to be targeted by air strikes,” said Abu Mahir, who lives near the city’s university. Like other residents contacted in the city, he refused to give his full name, but Abdul Rahman Waggaa, a member of the exiled Provincial Council of Nineveh of which Mosul is the capital, corroborated his account to Reuters. The fall of Mosul would signal the defeat of the ultra-hardline Sunni jihadists in Iraq but could also lead to land grabs and sectarian bloodletting between groups which fought one another after the 2003 overthrow of Saddam Hussein. In Washington, Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis told reporters that it was known that civilians were being used as human shields. “This has been going on for several weeks
where we’ve seen civilians being forcibly detained and their movements being prevented where they can’t get out of Mosul. They are being held there against their will,” he told reporters. Davis described the operation to retake Mosul as “an ugly fight”, adding: “But I will tell you we’ve seen very good progress. It’s day one, don’t get your hopes up, it’s going to be a while.” Around 1.5 million people still live in Mosul and the International Organization for Migration said Islamic State may use tens of thousands of residents as human shields to hold onto their last city stronghold in Iraq. The IOM said there was a likelihood of chemical attacks by the jihadists, who had used such weapons previously against Iraqi Kurdish forces. Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said safe routes had been secured for civilians who wanted to leave Mosul and it was the duty of the U.S.-led coalition to prevent Islamic State fighters from escaping into nearby Syria. The Syrian army, meanwhile, accused the coalition of planning to allow Islamic State militants to flee across the border. REUTERS

An Iranian court has sentenced an IranianAmerican businessman and his elderly father to 10 years in prison on charges of cooperating with the United States, Iranian media reported on Tuesday, the latest sign of an intensifying crackdown against Iranians with ties to the West.Â Iranâ€™s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps in October 2015 detained Siamak Namazi, a businessman in his mid-40s with dual U.S.-Iranian citizenship, while he was visiting family in Tehran. The IRGC in February arrested his 80-year-old father, Baquer Namazi, a former Iranian provincial gover-

Both men were sentenced to 10 years in prison for spying and cooperating with the U.S. government, said Tehran prosecutor Abbas Jafari Dolatabadi, according to the Fars news website, without specifying when exactly the sentences had been handed down. The U.S. State Departmentâ€™s deputy spokesman, Mark Toner, said the father and son had been â€œunjustly detainedâ€? in Iran, and called for their immediate release. The sentences were the latest against dual nationals directed by hardliners who are powerful in Iranâ€™s judiciary and security forces, in the aftermath of Iranâ€™s historic nuclear deal with the United States and other world powers last year.

White House seeks to answer complaints of aggrieved air travelers The effort is aimed at responding to complaints from consumers that range from delayed or damaged baggage and wheelchairs to pricey add-ons like payments for seat assignments. The White House announced efforts on Tuesday to improve air travel for Americans by requiring airlines to refund baggage handling fees if luggage is delayed and requiring online travel agents to provide neutral search results. The effort is aimed at responding to complaints from consumers that range from delayed or damaged baggage and
wheelchairs to pricey addons like payments for seat assignments. â€œThe actions weâ€™re announcing today will help consumers know how airlines are performing, will make sure that consumers donâ€™t have to pay for services they donâ€™t receive and will help consumers find the best flight options for them,â€? Jason Furman, chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers told reporters.

The department did not define a substantial delay. The Transportation Department also released new final rules that would

require airlines and online ticket agents to ensure that their search results are neutral, without favoring certain airlines. The new final rules would also require big U.S. airlines to report how often they lose or damage wheelchairs. They also changed the methodology for counting mishandled bags to compare lost, stolen, damaged or delayed bags against the total number of bags handled to make it more accurate, the White House said.Â REUTERS
