NOV. 5: DATE OF PUBLIC HEARING ON PROPOSED MTA FARE HIKES

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2007

MTA lays out fare-hike options The base price would increase by a quarter

Cell phones could mean big bucks for Transit

By Marlene Naanes mnaanes@am-ny.com

Straphangers could pay a quarter more per ride next year as part of the MTA’s proposed fare hike, but they might also have the option of paying a significantly reduced $1.50 during off-peak hours, the agency said yesterday. The MTA offered two fare-hike scenarios; both would boost the base fare to $2.25, hike monthly and weekly passes and offer a new 14day pass. One plan, however, presents an unusual option for straphangers — different pricing plans depending on the time of day. That idea would .com scrap bonuses for bulk ■ Tracker purchases on Metroblog for Cards in favor of a new transit fare structure for cards news bought with $6 or more. Those riders would pay $2 for rides during rush hours and just $1.50 during off-peak times. However, the agency did not detail how it would define rush hours. The MTA is hoping that the lessexpensive fare will ease crowding by encouraging riders with flexible schedules to take the train before or after rush hours. Straphangers who buy MetroCards for less than $6 would still pay the $2.25 fare. The other plan is a more traditional hike scenario, with increases across the board. The agency said the 25-cent hike was necessary, because a smaller increment would pose change-making and programming problems on MetroCard and ticket machines. “For a lot of different reasons,there were constraints from going from $2 to anything other than an even increment,” said Susan

■ WHAT’S THE DEAL: WHICH FARE IS MORE FAIR?

Breaking down the two MTA proposals Proposal 1: Base fare: Now: $2 Hike: $2.25 Express bus fare: Now: $5 Hike: $5.25 Monthly and weekly passes: Now: $76 and $24 Hike: About 4 percent increase, or

about $79 and about $25 New 14-day pass: $45 MetroCard for $10 or more: Now: 20 percent bonus includes free rides, average ride is $1.67 Hike: Only 20 percent bonus, average ride is $1.88

Kupferman, acting MTA chief operating officer. Meanwhile, commuter rail riders are looking at a hike of between 6.5 percent and 8 percent. On MTA bridges, tolls would go up 50 cents for cash customers and 25 cents for E-ZPass users when they drive

Proposal 2: Base fare: Now: $2 Hike: $2.25 MetroCards: Now: 20 percent bonus for $10 or more Hike: No bonus card. Buy a card for $6 or more and $2 for peak ridership times and $1.50 for off-

peak times. Monthly and weekly passes: Now: $76 and $24 Hike: Between 6.5 and 8 percent increase, could be $81 and about $26 New 14-day pass: $48 Express bus fare: Same as now, $5

across major crossings. The public will be able to sound off on both scenarios at hearings that begin Nov. 5. The MTA board will vote on the proposed hikes in December. But advocates did not waste any time yesterday either blasting the

Tolls: Cash customers pay $ .50 more at major crossings and $ .25 more at Rockaway Bridges. EZPass customers will pay $ .25 more at major crossings and $ .10 more at the others. The Henry Hudson Bridge toll would increase by $ .25 for EZPass users and $ .50 for cash customers.

hike or holding off for more details. “A quarter fare hike is still too much,” said Gene Russianoff, spokesman for the Straphangers Campaign. Russianoff said more funding from governmental sources could partially offset a hike.

The MTA further cemented plans yesterday for cell phone and WiFi service on subway platforms, revealing that it stands to make a pretty penny off the deal without spending a cent. In addition to the already announced $46 million Transit Wireless will pay the MTA to install the subway technology, the consortium will also pay the agency 50 percent of any earnings above a projected $148 million in revenue during the 10-year contract. Two committees approved the plan, which does not include coverage in the tunnels, and pushed the issue toward a board vote tomorrow. Cell phone carriers will pay Transit Wireless to carry their signals underground. Transit Wireless is required to sign on at least one major carrier during the two-year pilot program. MTA officials also calmed a board member’s concerns about possible cell-phone detonated bombs at yesterday’s committee meetings. Other major cities already offer cell phone access in subways, and the MTA consulted with the NYPD before deciding to move forward, said William Morange, MTA Director of Security.

Ahmadinejad defends regime Makes bold speech at Columbia By David Freedlander dfreedlander@am-ny.com

While fierce protests raged outside Columbia University yesterday, Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s defiant speech inside was greeted with respectful solemnity and a smattering of boos.

The strangest moment in the speech was Ahmadinejad’s response about homosexuality to one audience-member’s query, an answer that was met with jeering inside the auditorium and laughter outside. “In Iran, we don’t have homosexuals like in your country,” he said. Besides the hundreds of stu-

Outside the university’s gates, hundreds of protesters went noseto-nose over the school’s right to host the leader. One group waved signs that read “The Real Axis of Evil: Bollinger — Ahmadinejad — Coatsworth,” in reference to John Coatsworth, the dean of the School of International and Public Affairs, which invited Ahmadinejad.

down mode, closing most of its entrance gates and allowing only people with Columbia identification cards past the rows of police officers standing guard.

Before the speech, the campus seemed like an island of tranquility compared to the passions flaring just outside. The Columbia Coalition, an umbrella organization of several student groups, held a “Forum for The Free Expression of Ideas,” which they billed as an exercise in the First Amendment, allowing anybody to voice their opinion on the events of the day so long as they were “safe and respectful.” “We hope his talk will be an example of the kind of healthy debate that sets this college apart,” said Aaron Kreiger, a college sophomore.

Plea to fight global warming With tales of rising seas and talk of human solidarity, world leaders at the first United Nations climate summit sought yesterday to put new urgency into talks to reduce global-warming emissions. What’s needed is “action, action, action,” California’s environmentalist governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, told the assembled presidents and premiers. The Bush administration showed no sign, however, that it would reverse its stand against mandatory emission cuts endorsed by 175 other nations. Some expressed fears the White House, with its own forum later this week, would launch talks rivaling the U.N. climate treaty negotiations. President Bush didn’t take part in the day’s sessions, which drew more than 80 national leaders, but planned to attend a small dinner yesterday evening, a gathering of

majority of Persian people oppose the current government in Iran. But they do support the First Amendment.” “The press in New York is clearly biased against Ahmadinejad and Iran,” said Kaz, owner of the Upper East Side Persian restaurant Persepolis, who asked that his last name not be printed for fear he would be harassed by Persian nationalists.

MSG intern: Sex ‘poor’ call In a gushing Hallmark card, the former Knicks intern who had sex with point guard Stephon Marbury called the encounter a “poor decision.” “I do know that I’ve learned from that mistake and will not let anything like that happen again,” Kathleen Decker, 24, wrote in December 2005. Decker’s handwritten card, pro-

Browne Sanders has tried to use the ex-intern’s encounter with the NBA star as an example of her reporting sexual harassment allegations prior to her termination of employment in January 2006.

But yesterday. said the sex was “completely” consensual. “I was in control,” Decker said. “I never said I regretted the episode.” Contrary to what Browne Sanders testified, the ex-intern, who now works in community relations at an MSG charity, admitted to having sex with Marbury in April 2005.

Now on menu: Patio heaters By Justin Rocket Silverman jsilverman@am-ny.com

Not content to wait for global warming to extend the outdoor dining season, the city announced new rules yesterday that will let restaurants use patio heaters. The move will be a boon to the almost 1,000 restaurants in the five boroughs that have outdoor seating, and may encourage more to join their ranks. Industry representatives said they were “delighted” by the city’s decision to allow the outdoor heaters, which would be powered by natural gas. “Everyone likes to be seen, and many of our customers do prefer outdoor dining,” said Eric Estrada, a manager at Cafeteria in Chelsea. “If it means keeping the patio open longer, I

The Bush administration said in a new report yesteday that Social Security is facing a $13.6 trillion shortfall and that delaying needed reforms is not fair to younger workers. A report issued by the Treasury Department said that some combination of benefit cuts and tax increases will need to be considered to permanently fix the funding shortfall. But White House officials stressed that President Bush remains opposed to raising taxes. The Treasury report put the cost of the gap between what Social Security is expected to need to pay out in benefits and what it will raise in payroll taxes in

coming years at $13.6 trillion. It said delaying necessary changes reduces the number of people available to share in the burden of those changes and is unfair to younger workers. “Not taking action is thus unfair to future generations. This is a significant cost of delay,” the report said. In another key finding, the report said: “Social Security can be made permanently solvent only by reducing the present value of scheduled benefits and/or increasing the present value of scheduled tax increases.” The paper went on to say: “Other changes to the program might be desirable, but only these changes can restore solvency permanently.”

Bush: Hillary will be Dem nominee By Terence Hunt The Associated Press

President Bush, breaking his rule not to talk about presidential politics, said he believes Hillary Rodham Clinton will defeat Barack Obama in the Democratic presidential primaries. Bush also predicts that Clinton will be defeated in the general election by the Republican nominee. “I believe our candidate can beat her, but it’s going to be a tough race,” the president said. It has been difficult for Bush to remain silent about the 2008 president race, despite his promises not to be the “prognosticator in chief.” He has been talking about the race and handicapping candidates during off-the-record chats with visitors to the White House. He finally went public with his Clinton prediction in an interview for a book by journalist Bill Sammon. “She’s got a great national presence and this is becoming a national primary,” Bush told Sammon. “And

BRIEFS ■ Bomber strikes Shiite, Sunni meeting A suicide bomber struck a reconciliation meeting of Shiite and Sunni tribal leaders and senior provincial officials in Baqouba, Iraq, yesterday, killing at least 15 people, including the city’s police chief, security officials said. A witness said most of the people killed or wounded were in the mosque yard washing their hands or drinking tea.

■ New military chief appointed in China China has named a new chief of general staff for its military, a commander once tasked with making war preparations against Taiwan, the Defense Ministry said yesterday. Chen Bingde’s promotion as the People’s Liberation Army’s head of day-to-day operations came in the past six weeks, in a transfer that was unusually quiet.

■ Pakistan steps up activist crackdown Police intensified a crackdown yesterday that opposition parties say has left hundreds of activists in custody while the Supreme Court dismissed three challenges to the re-election bid of Pakistan’s military leader. The U.S. Embassy called the crackdown “extremely disturbing” and urged the immediate release of several opposition leaders arrested since Saturday night.

■ Commandos save kidnapped Italians Italian commandos, aided by other NATO forces and aircraft, rescued two kidnapped Italian intelligence operatives yesterday in a daring ambush and gunbattle that left at least nine of the captors dead in western Afghanistan. Although both freed Italians were wounded, Italian Prime Minister Romano Prodi said the operation was a success.

■ Security tightened for Lebanon prez vote Anti-Syrian lawmakers rattled by last week’s assassination of one of their colleagues took refuge in a heavily guarded hotel yesterday, a day before the deeply divided parliament convenes to elect a president. Security forces put together an elaborate plan sealing off downtown Beirut to allow the lawmakers to move safely from the hotel to the parliament building. (AP)

Regime protest swells Myanmar gov’t warns marchers As many as 100,000 protesters led by a phalanx of barefoot monks marched yesterday in Yangon, Myanmar, in the most powerful show of strength yet from a movement that has grown in a week from faltering demonstrations to one rivaling the failed 1988 pro-democracy uprising. Hours after the protest ended peacefully, Myanmar’s military government

broadcast an ominous warning, telling senior Buddhist clerics that unless they restrained their juniors, the government would take action on its own against those it said were instigated by the regime’s domestic and foreign enemies. Marching for more than five hours and more than 12 miles, a last hard-core group of more than 1,000 maroon-robed Buddhist monks and 400 sympathizers finished by walking up

THE MARCHERS CHANTED A BUDDHIST PRAYER WITH THE WORDS ‘MAY THERE BE PEACE.’ to an intersection where police blocked access to the street where democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi is under house arrest. Making no effort to push past, the marchers chanted a Buddhist prayer with the words “May there be peace,” and then dispersed. About 500 onlookers cheered the act of defiance, as 100 riot police

Olmert purchase probed By Amy Teibel The Associated Press

The prosecutor’s office ordered police to launch a criminal investigation into Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s purchase of a Jerusalem home well below market value, the Justice Ministry said yesterday. Israel’s state comptroller, a government watchdog, has already investigated allegations that Olmert bought the house from a Jerusalem developer in the upscale German Colony neighborhood at $325,000 under market value, raising suspicions of fraud and bribery. The sale took place before

with helmets and shields stared stonily ahead. Some participants said there were several hundred thousand marchers in their ranks, but an international aid agency official with employees monitoring the crowd estimated the size was more than 50,000 and approaching 100,000. It was the latest in a series of protests that began Aug. 19 as a movement against economic hardship after the government sharply raised fuel prices. But intimidation kept rallies small until the monks joined, bringing people into the streets. (AP)

Russian President Vladimir Putin named a new government yesterday, tapping new economics and health ministers and retaining his current foreign and defense ministers as part of an expected shuffle before crucial parliamentary and presidential elections. The new government’s naming comes more than a week after Viktor Zubkov, an Putin obscure Cabinet official who had overseen a money laundering investigation, became prime minister in a move that surprised most Kremlin experts and stoked speculation over who would be Putin’s successor. The changes were largely superficial, and observers said major policy shifts of any sort were unlikely before parliamentary elections in December and the presidential vote in March. “In this crucial time, it’s necessary not only to ensure stable work but also energetically promote the implementation of our strategic plans and to resolve the pressing everyday problems facing the citizens of Russia,” Putin said in televised comments.

Iraqis testify about slays under Saddam

Israel welcomes Syria to forum Israel yesterday welcomed a U.S. announcement that Syria will be invited to an upcoming Mideast peace conference, saying it has “no problem” sitting down with its archenemy. The Israeli announcement came as Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said his Olmert was prime minister. Olmert declared his innocence and insisted the price he paid was fair. “We are absolutely convinced of the integrity of the

country is not interested in violent conflict with Syria and expressed confidence that recent tensions between the enemy nations will subside. Olmert has been trying to ease fears of a possible outbreak in fighting after a reported Israeli airstrike in Syria on Sept. 6. (AP) Olmert family’s purchase of the house,” the statement said. “This investigation is uncalled-for,” it said, adding that Olmert would “cooperate fully.”

Two witnesses testified about the executions of family members in Saddam Hussein’s brutal suppression of a 1991 Shiite uprising in Iraq as a trial resumed yesterday for former regime officials charged with crimes against humanity for their roles in the crackdown. An elderly man recounted how soldiers rolled into his village near the southern city of Basra, shelled houses and rounded up young men. The witness, whose testified from behind a curtain to protect his identi-

ty, said both his sons were taken away. A boy who resisted was shot, the witness said. “I saw it with my own eyes.” The crackdown followed Saddam’s defeat in Kuwait, when Iraqi Shiites in the south and Kurds in the north — repressed under his Sunni-dominated regime — staged separate uprisings that briefly seized control of 14 of the country’s 18 provinces. U.S. troops created a safe haven for Kurds in three northern provinces, preventing Saddam from attacking. (AP)

Can you handle your debt? Low rates can be tempting If today’s larger-than-expected cut in interest rates makes it less expensive and easier for people to get loans, it would be bad news for Yusupha Touray. By his estimate, Long Beach, Calif., resident Touray, 27, owes about $93,000 in credit card, phone, utility and hospital bills. “When my bills come, I know I don’t have any money to pay them,” he said. “So I don’t bother anymore.” Nevertheless, Touray said he gets pitches from creditcard issuers in the mail almost every day. If those pitches become a smidge

more attractive because of lower interest rates, he said he just might be tempted to go even deeper in the hole. “It’s amazing,” Touray said. “You keep saying no, and they just keep making more offers.”

■ Debt calculator ■ Expert money tips ■ Savings strategies

The Federal Reserve said its decision to cut short-term interest rates by half a percentage point was intended to ease the credit crunch in the housing market. That’s another way of saying the main beneficiaries are heavyweight financial institutions that got slammed by investments in sub-prime loans. For consumers, the rate cut will mean lower mort-

gages for some, but also lower credit card rates and lower rates for auto loans. And for those who aren’t careful, it could result in even more debt for a country that’s drowning in consumer debt. “There’s definitely a danger that people will be tempted to take out too much credit,” said Linda Sherry, a spokeswoman for Consumer Action in Washington, D.C. “They’ll use it for things they want rather than things they need.” Because consumer spending accounts for about twothirds of the U.S. economy, that’s not necessarily a bad thing. But unless managed prudently, it can spell trouble for many

households. According to Fed statistics released last week, U.S. consumers are carrying a record $2.456 trillion in debt (not including mortgages).

The amount of revolving credit, such as credit cards, carried by consumers rose in July at an annual rate of 6.6 percent, or by $5 billion — the third straight month of significant gains. Experts advise consumers to limit themselves to

only one or two credit cards, and to pay off the balance each month. Resist the temptation to make minimum payments; you’ll get caught in a web of debt. And throw away solicitations that arrive in the mail, no matter how attractive the terms appear.

Experts urge consumers to limit the number of credit cards to one or two. (iStockphoto)

BAT FOR LASHES By Emily Zemler Special to amNewYork

U.K. group Bat For Lashes, the brainchild of musician and songwriter Natasha Khan, has been steadily gaining ground here in the States since the release of its eclectic debut “Fur and Gold” earlier this year. Khan, who does much of the writing and recording solo and then adds in her three-piece band later, says she doesn’t necessarily pen her songs with the live .com show in mind. “I write ■ Songs songs in a very to make private way you cry and just let my ■ Videos imagination to make run wild in you laugh terms of whatever instrumentation the song is crying out for,” Khan told amNewYork. “I worry about the arrangements later. If I have written a horn part, I know I can record it for the album, but may have to re-arrange it with the help of the girls for live, on guitar or strings for example.” But the record, a collection of ethereal, occasionally quirky tracks reminiscent of singer-songwriters such as Björk and Tori Amos, translates with a bit more heft on the stage. “The record is definitely an intimate listening experience, whereas live, with the musical input of Caroline Weeks, Abi Fry and Lizzy Carey, the record takes on a whole new dimension,” Khan explains. “It sounds dramatic and epic and we all swap and change our instru-

New on CD Foo Fighters Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace

This album shares a lot in common with the previous five Foo Fighters albums. For one thing, it’s very good. Dave Grohl can write catchy foot-tapping rock songs all day long, tagging on anthemic choruses like afterthoughts. But in a lot of ways, this album is more complex and challenging than anything the band has done before. (AP)

Shocking Pinks

Tiny Master of Today

Shocking Pinks

Bang Bang Boom Cake

A hissing cloud of delicate feedback, submerged vocals and die-cut drums set amidst a haze of ghostly clean guitars and the travails of youth,“Shocking Pinks” collects tracks from prolific Kiwi Nick Harte’s two previous albums on Flying Nun for a most welcome stateside introduction. (Charles Devilbiss)

They can’t really sing, and their lyrics are strictly grade school. But, they’re in grade school. And they absolutely shred. Brooklyn punk-rock siblings Ivan (age 13) and his kid sister Ida (age 11) have torn up the stage at SXSW, filled clubs in London, and hung out with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. At an age when I was struggling with fractions. ’Nuff said.

Stars

(Charles Devilbiss)

In Our Bedroom ...

Iron & Wine The Shepherd’s Dog

In a bold move, Stars released their new work digitally a full two months before its physical release, a twisty sensibility also imprinted on their adventurous songcraft. A celebration of a vague amour de guerre, the grand title track and shiver-inducing “Barricade” stand above the synth-soaked demilitarized zone that lies (Charles Devilbiss) between.

■ PROFILE: NIKKI SIXX

Rock star warns against excess By Emily Zemler Special to amNewYork

You know him as the bassist of mega-rock band Mötley Crüe, but Nikki Sixx is now also a bona fide author. “The Heroin Diaries: A Year In the Life of a Shattered Rock Star” is a selfpenned chronicle (with the help of British journalist Ian Gittins) of his addiction to drugs and alcohol. Sixx, who already divulged much of his private life in the Mötley Crüe tell-all “The Dirt” several years back, has published this book to help others who may share similar problems. “It really started when I found these ’86-’87 journal entries,” he explains. “I keep diaries still. I’ve kept diaries before. But this period itself, specifically, dealing with the subject at hand, being in recovery, I felt compelled to publish them.” The book, which will donate 25 percent of its proceeds to Covenant House, a

Nikki Sixx is hoping that others can learn from his mistakes. charity that helps at-risk youth, deals with heavy subject matter, but Sixx, who also recorded an accompanying soundtrack to the book with his new band Sixx: A.M., insists that there was no self-editing involved in the writing process.

“I am so brutally honest that I just live in the truth of the moment,” Sixx says. “It’s funny because I look back on interviews I did 10 or 15 years ago and I go, ‘But I don’t even believe that anymore.’ But I believed it at the time. I’m very much cut

from the cloth of ‘This is my battle cry’ and standing up for it.” The battle cry in this case is one of recovery, something that is particularly fitting right now as September is National Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery

Month. And while Sixx has spent much of his career embodying the role of rock star, he is now helping to prove that being a rock star can also involve being a positive role model. “It’s what we do that’s important and how we do it,” Sixx says. “I’ve been very lucky, but I’ve also worked really hard. I’ve been taken care of financially and had a quality of life that I never thought I would have, so to take that slice of time out of all that and push something back the other way, it just seems fair.

“Margaret Garner” is an operatic adaptation of Toni Morrison’s “Beloved.” she is granted clemency on the grounds she herself returns to a life of slavery, she chooses instead to swing from the gallows. Danielpour’s neo-romantic, tonal score brims with numerous lush though oversentimentalized passages, along with period waltzes and gospel choruses. Unfor-

tunately, some of it is mismatched with the action, overstuffing the emotion and slowing down the action. Tazewell Thompson’s production boasts impressive (i.e. expensive) production values, a large cast and plays far better than New York City Opera’s ongoing

revivals of “La Boheme” and “Don Giovanni,” both of which were showcased last weekend at the Opera for All festival. The acting of the principal actors is generally outstanding, the staging is often arresting, and the score itself is often quite good. But does this all add up to an American opera

Why Are There So Many Different Churches? Because people want to do what they want to do! The New Testament gives a pattern and directions for the Lord’s church. From the beginning people began to adjust and modify the church to their own preferences. We must return to the original and submit to the Lord’s rule. It is HIS church.

Read The Bible: “ and he put all things in subjection under his [Christ’s] feet, and gave him to be head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

TONIGHT’S REVIEW OF TV Boston Legal John Larroquette, who played a prosecutor on “Night Court,” joins the cast in the season premiere as Carl Sack, an old nemesis of Denny’s (William Shatner) from the New York office. Alan (James Spader) also defends a colleague: Shirley (Candice Bergen), who’s been sued for reneging on a donation to a university. 9:30 PM on 7-WABC

John Larroquette

Cane If “Dallas” were about sugar instead of oil, it might look something like this new drama series set in South Florida. Jimmy Smits stars as Alex Vega, who’s just been handed the reins of the family sugar and rum business. It’s under fire from a rival outfit, so expect lots of drama in both the business and personal lives of the characters. Hector Elizondo, Nestor Carbonell and Rita Moreno also star. 10 PM on 2-WCBS

editor in chief of BRIDES. If the gown is shorter or the bride is petite, the veil should flow just around her shoulders, framing her face and avoiding dress distractions. For jewelry, think of classic styles with infinite wearbility. Mara Ursul, owner of Kleinfeld bridal shop, swears by wearing earrings. “They will remind the bride of one of the most memorable and beautiful days of her life,” she said. For shoes, style is important, but so is being able to walk and dance. A tip? “Scuff the soles with a bit of sandpaper to avoid sliding as you walk down the aisle,” Bratten said.

Honeymoons on the cheap By Julie Gordon jgordon@am-ny.com

Not everyone can afford the Cove Atlantis’ $100,000 honeymoon package, with its private jet service, yacht and penthouse suite. Heck, paying for any type of honeymoon can seem impossible. But there are ways to cut back. Here’s our guide to budgeting without having to give up a romantic getaway. ■ Register. On several Web sites, including WeddingChannel.com, brides and grooms can set up a honeymoon registry, where guests make contributions. ■ Delay. “If you really

dream of going somewhere like the Caribbean, and you’re getting married in December, that’s the most expensive time to travel,” said Darcy Miller, editorial director of Martha Stewart Weddings. Instead, take a long weekend and save your trip for a cheaper time of year. ■ Spread the word. If you tell everyone involved in the honeymoon planning process that you’re newlyweds, you’re more likely to get special treatment. “If you go somewhere a little off the beaten track,

your hotel might upgrade you to a suite or [your airline] to business class,” said Marilyn Oliveira, WeddingChannel.com senior editor. “In a hotspot, you’re not as likely to get upgrades.” ■ Choose wisely. Visiting multiple destinations can be more expensive than staying in one spot for a week, but it can be done on a budget. “Honeymoon hopping gives you the opportunity to stay at hotels with various price points. And Europe offers trains and ferries that are more economical,” said Kathleen Murray, deputy editor of The Knot.

Learning to confront that dreaded ‘F’ word: fiancée By Daisy Carrington dcarrington@am-ny.com

According to many media outlets, marriage is a magical thing that almost every woman wants. For many New York women, the concept causes more anxiety than joy. This, at least, is what Kelly Bare found when she and her boyfriend got engaged. Bare, a Web editor at the New Yorker, channeled her jitters into a book: “The F Word: A Fiancée Shares Her Story, From ‘I Will’ to ‘I Do’.” She talks about how to quell wedding fears. Why did you write this book? I didn’t really set out to write a book. While I was working at Tango [a relationship magazine], I happened to get engaged, and I had a lot of crazy feelings about what was happening. I was a writer, and (Clay Enos)

writers write to cope. What is so scary about getting married? You have this life, and then, bam, you’re getting married and it becomes a huge portion of your identity, if you let it. When else in your life do you take on a new title? How do you advise women who feel the same way to cope? You can start neglecting your relationship and let the planning become the only thing that you and your fiancé interact about. It’s very easy to let it creep in and take over. Don’t beat yourself up if you find yourself feeling different than you thought you might. Take a break on wedding media. Overdosing on theknot.com is not a good thing.

Democracy on display In a supposedly democratic country where we used to promote freedom of speech and the ability to hear both sides and say, “innocent until proven guilty,” etc., it’s troubling to see how close-minded and ignorant we’ve become. We should act like a first world democratic country and be an example to other countries such as Iran where they don’t have our freedom. Shame on those who are prejudiced and act worse than those countries that we accuse of the same. Politicians should concentrate on our collapsing infrastructure rather than grandstanding and demonizing those said to be evil by our media. Michael Aziz, Queens

Iran prez should be welcomed If the veneer of sophistication were enough to be truly content, if ciphers and illusions were enough to make life sufficient to the cause of that which makes human life more than simply bearable, then faith unexamined, might remain the great and austere phenomenon that Kierkegaard saw when he looked at the parable of Abraham. Sadly, I think it is abundantly clear that faith, and more frequently, bad faith, in any public discourse ought to be held to the highest ridicule, and excised from the dialog of a democracy altogether. And therefore, with no undue prejudice either way, I bid the president of Iran welcome. After all, he is no greater, and certainly no worse than any other dictator, who has been welcomed to these shores unilaterally and with open arms. Because, there can be no doubt that a hallmark of true sophistication, reserve, and gentility is the right of safe conduct to foreign diplomatic agents.

A new workout trend promotes fluidity By Kristen V. Brown Special to amNewYork

With fall here already and winter quickly on its way, many of us have already resigned ourselves to less frequent trips to the gym. But future winter workout blues be gone. Michelle Austin, personal trainer and creator of Fluidity, the Pilates- and dance-inspired workout that has taken NYC gyms by storm, has developed a portable Fluidity bar so lazy gym-goers can exercise from home. Now you can keep that buff bod you worked on all summer without leaving the house. “It’s a whole body movement,” explains Daria Osifchin, Fluidity’s marketing director. “It uses muscle integration and the resistance

of your own body to build muscle, so you develop strength proportionally. Your weaker muscles get stronger and your strong ones become more proportional.” Fluidity is perfect for those of us who still secretly dream of becoming ballerinas. Both the gym and the at-home version of the MIT-designed bar are portable, updated reinventions of the classic, wall-mounted ballet bar. The dance-like exercise routines use the body’s own weight against the bar so users develop muscletone and balance much like that of a dancer.

workout that will leave you sore the next day, it’s really for everyone. “Everyone from hard-core athletes to beginners have all had success,” she says, “In the gyms, we see people ranging from 18 to 70-year-old women!” For those better suited to keeping their workout in the gym, one-hour-long Fluidity classes are offered at NYC gyms The Printing House, the New York Health and Racquet Club and the JCC. Austin even trains every single Fluidity instructor herFluidity bars strengthen weaker muscles and make stronger muscles more proportional.

Below the surface of aging creams If you use it regularly, you’ll definitely look better over time.”

By Ishani Ganguli The Washington Post

Today’s fountain of youth is filled with a strange brew of fairy-tale herbs and chemicals: Chaga mushrooms, osmolytes, coffeeberry extract. Scientists dispute the definition of aging as well as its mechanisms, so claims that a product can stop or reverse the process are misleading at best. Nonetheless, Americans show no sign of slowing their search for a panacea. Here’s a closer look at some of the products, their ingredients and the research behind them.

Sunscreens Do they work?: Sunscreen “is the No. 1 anti-aging product,” said Rebecca Kazin, assistant professor of dermatology at Johns Hopkins. “I tell people, and they kind of laugh, but it’s true.

Retinoids Where to find them: In three prescription creams — Renova, Retin-A and Avage — and in over-the-counter retinol creams such as Estée Lauder Diminish AntiWrinkle Retinol Treatment. Do they work?: Retinoids “increase cell turnover, reverse signs of photoaging and allow you to smooth out fine lines,” Kazin said. Dermatologist Sandra Read said she prescribes retinoids regularly for signs of photoaging, though not for women considering pregnancy.

Antioxidants Examples: Vitamins A, C and E, coenzyme Q10, polyphenols. Do they work?:”It is an improvement, a clear im-

Dizziness? New York, NY - According to a recently released "Dizziness Relief" report, most vertigo sufferers have no idea how to eliminate their problem. Some use meds like meclizine or exercises but dizziness relief techniques vary. But thanks to a free report, local vertigo sufferers finally know exactly what to do. To get a copy of the free Dizziness Relief Report: Call toll-free 1-800-267-9739, 24 hr. recorded message, or go to: www.EndTheDizzinessReport.com

With so many face creams on the market, how can you tell what really works? (iStockphoto) provement,” said Read of antioxidants as a whole. Studies show that vitamins C and E are effective in combination, though vitamin C may do little on its own.

Hydroxy Acids The approach: Sloughing off dead cells while increasing skin’s thickness. Where to find them:

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Eye Cream (alpha hydroxy acids), Exuviance products (polyhydroxy acids). Do they work?: Studies show that these fruit acids decrease wrinkling, roughness and discoloration. “They really do produce significant reversal,” Read said, though alpha hydroxy acids can cause skin irritation.

ARE YOU MAKING FREQUENT TRIPS TO THE BATHROOM AT NIGHT? We are seeking volunteers, aged 18 and older, for participation in a research study evaluating the safety and effectiveness of an investigational medication for nocturia (the frequent need to urinate at night). The study medication for the MELT study is a fast dissolving formulation of an investigational medication for nocturia. If you or your loved one qualifies and agrees to participate, all study-related care including doctor visits, physical exams, laboratory tests, and study medication will be provided. Compensation for time and travel may also be provided.

Fake acupuncture works nearly as well as the real thing for lower back pain, and either kind performs better than usual care, German researchers found. Almost half the patients treated with acupuncture needles felt relief that lasted months. In contrast, only about a quarter of the patients receiving medications and other Western medical treatments felt better. Even fake acupuncture worked better than conventional care, leading researchers to wonder According to German researchers, half of patients treated with acupuncture felt whether pain relief came relief that lasted months.

People will lose weight for money, even a little money, suggests a study that offers another option for employers looking for ways to cut health care costs. The research published in the September issue of the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine found that cash incentives can be a success even when the payout is as little as $7 for dropping just a few pounds in three months. Unlike providing onsite fitness centers or improving offerings in the company cafeteria, cash rewards provide a company with a guaranteed return, the researchers said. “They really can’t be a bad investment because you don’t pay people unless they lose weight,” said Eric A. Finkelstein, the study’s lead author and a health economist at RTI International, a research institute

Sanding off the pounds Over the past five years, the Mo.-based VSM Abrasives, which makes sandpaper, has been rewarding its 125 employees with cash for trimming their weight and an extra day off each year if they don't gain it back.

based in nearby Research Triangle Park. The study involved about 200 overweight employees at several colleges in North Carolina, divided into three groups. One group received no incentives, while the other two groups received $7 or $14 for each percentage point of weight lost. For example, someone in the middle group weighing 200 pounds who lost 10 pounds, would get $35. Participants didn’t get any help on how to lose weight. In the end, employees who received the most incentives lost the most weight.

China feels backlash Country’s food exports plummet By Don Lee Los Angeles Times

Take the Foot Health Checkup • My toenails are streaked, discolored and thickened. • I have a large bump behind my big toe (or little toe) which is always red. • My toes aren’t straight-they are all cocked-up bent & hurt. • My ankles are swollen most of the time. • I have corns on my toes which get thick no matter what shoe size I wear. • I get an extremely painful “cramp” in the area of my third and fourth toes when wearing shoes. • The bottom of my heel hurts all day, but it’s worse when I step out of bed in the morning. • My feet just hurt all over when I stand or walk a lot.

Chinese exports of foods including garlic, honey and fish fell sharply this summer as Beijing officials tightened health and safety regulations. That has meant increased revenue for some American growers whose products are now in greater demand — but also higher prices for U.S. consumers. The stepped-up enforcement by Chinese officials, who are trying to restore confidence after a series of product-safety scares, has included intense inspections of certain food producers and new requirements in some cases. In China’s garlic capital in Shandong province, many of the larger exporters were forced to stop production during much of the summer while inspectors went through their plants and books. Some were ordered

Chinese exports are under scrutiny because some were found to contain potentially deadly substances. (AP)

Tests passed China’s government has said that 99 percent of the nation’s food exports to the U.S. — totaling about $3.8 billion in 2006 — passed muster in each of the past three years. (Los Angeles Times)

The result: Chinese garlic exports to the U.S. fell 39 percent in July from a year earlier — a stark contrast to the 59 percent year-overyear increase in value in the first half of 2007. U.S. garlic importers haven’t reported quality problems with Chinese garlic. But Chinese officials aren’t taking any chances with some of their biggest food exports. The influx of Chinese garlic in recent years has been a sensitive issue as it often sells for about half of what U.S.-grown garlic does.

Nine LIers among 124 offenders By Robert E. Kessler Special to amNewYork

Nine New Yorkers were among 124 people across the country who have been charged recently with illegal manufacturing and sales of anabolic steroids, federal officials said yesterday. One of the nine New Yorkers, Christopher Lance, 36, of Melville, committed suicide shortly after he was arrested two weeks ago, as part of the two-year joint investigation by federal and local officials nationwide to impede the illegal sales of steroids that has resulted in the shutdown of 56 illegal steroid laboratories, officials said. “It’s an incredibly tragic development and a sad re-

minder of what can happen when someone gets involved with these dangerous drugs,” Nassau District Attorney Kathleen Rice said yesterday of Lance’s death. The attorney for Lance, who faced more than two years in prison if convicted of the charge of criminal possession of a controlled substance in the fifth degree, declined to comment. Sources familiar with the case said it was not known if either the arrest, or what they said was Lance’s own use of steroids, contributed to his suicide. But the sources said that at times steroid use can cause depression. Lance was arrested on Sept. 12, along with his wife, Debra Rosenbach, 33, his mother Karen Lance, 55, of Massapequa, and Romolo Squiteri, 25, of West Babylon, on charges of operating a steroid lab from his home. Local authorities cooperated with agents of the federal Drug Enforcement Ad-

Typically, the steroid labs bought the solid chemical in bulk from China, brought it into the country illegally and then converted it into an injectable form that body builders and others injected, DEA and FDA officials said.

The conversion is relatively simple and requires only alcohol and some type of vegetable oil, the officials said. The operators of the labs then sold the injectable steroids over the Internet, or, in some case, kits to convert the solid steroid powder into an injectable form.

The steroid ring, which operated a lab out of Lance’s home, was one of three operations that were shut down as part of the overall investigation, federal officials said yesterday at the DEA’s regional headquarters in Manhattan.

x-clinched division; z-clinched playoff berth Late games not included

Jays catch Yanks sleeping By Ben Walker The Associated Press

The Yankees took a day off yesterday. At least, that’s how it looked. The Yankees’ drive for a playoff spot paused, with Andy Pettitte falling behind early and a smallish crowd watching Toronto rookie Jesse Litsch pitch the Blue Jays to a 4-1 victory. “It definitely felt like a makeup game,” Pettitte said. Rescheduled from an April 25 rainout, there was hardly any energy in the ballpark. The Yankees could’ve clinched a postseason berth — they needed a win, coupled with a Detroit loss later against Minnesota. Instead, the Yankees never quite woke up in their final home game of the regular season and fell two games behind idle Boston in the AL East. Alex Rodriguez drove in the Yankees’ lone run for his 147th RBI, albeit on a dribbler that barely rolled halfway down the first-base line. Many hitters swung at the first pitch as the Yankees lost for just the fourth time

Andy Pettitte failed to win his 15th game this year.

in the last 18 games. “We weren’t anything offensively today,” manager Joe Torre said. There were only about 12,000 people in the seats when the game started. Officially, there were 23,567 fans at the park. Because all 53,281 tickets were sold, this counted as the Yankees’ 50th sellout of the year. That brought their season attendance to a record 4,271,356, breaking last year’s mark of 4,243,780. Still, it was a sleepy after-

(AP)

noon for most everyone on the Yankees side. Derek Jeter misplayed an easy grounder for an error, Rodriguez let a bouncer roll underneath his glove and Pettitte (14-9) struggled. The Yankees had tagged Litsch (7-9) twice this season, but this time he pitched five-hit ball for 72⁄3 innings without a walk. Litsch started in place of A.J. Burnett, who left the Blue Jays for a day on what they described as “personal business.” Burnett’s absence appeared to be a break for the Yankees. He was 1-0 with an 0.60 ERA in two starts against them this season. Pettitte was pitching for the first time since posting his 200th career victory.

Stranger than fiction Injured in tirade, Padre out for year

By Stephen Wade The Associated Press

By Bernie Wilson The Associated Press

Padres left fielder Milton Bradley tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee when he was spun to the ground by his manager Sunday during a blowup with an umpire and will miss the rest of the season. The diagnosis came from an MRI exam, according to a person with knowledge of the situation, who spoke yesterday on condition of anonymity because a formal announcement had yet to be made. Bradley, who helped spark the wild-card leading Padres during the season's second half, was ejected by Mike Winters. He then hurt his knee during a bizarre scene when manager Bud Black spun him to the ground to keep him from going after the first base umpire in the eighth inning of Sunday’s 7-3 loss to Colorado. The Padres, trying to reach the playoffs for the third straight year, entered last night’s game at San Francisco with a one-half game lead over Philadelphia in the wild-card race. San Diego was 21⁄2 games

Milton Bradley, center, was helped off the field after tearing his ACL on Sunday. (AP) behind first-place Arizona in the NL West with seven to play. San Diego had won seven straight against lastplace teams San Francisco and Pittsburgh before their offense went flat and lost three straight to the hot-hitting Rockies. The Padres were incredulous Sunday, saying Winters baited Bradley, leading to the confrontation. Baseball spokesman Rich Levin said the commissioner’s office is looking into whether Bradley was baited by Winters. The investigation is headed by Mike Port, major league baseball's vice president of umpiring, who reports to executive vice president Jimmie Lee Solomon. Players union general counsel Michael Weiner said the association is wait-

ing to see whether MLB does something before deciding whether to take action. Bradley, whose volatile temper has overshadowed his talent during his career, called it “the most unprofessional and most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen.” “It’s terrible. And now, because of him, my knee’s hurt,” Bradley said Sunday. “If this costs me my season because of that, he needs to be reprimanded. I’m taking some action. I’m not going to stand pat and accept this, because I didn’t do nothing wrong.” The 29-year-old was playing his third game back from a 12-game injury layoff. Batting .313, Bradley hit his 11th homer earlier in the game. As Bradley walked to the

plate in the eighth, umpire Brian Runge asked the player if he had flipped his bat in the ump’s direction after taking a called third strike to end the fifth. “I said, ‘Are you kidding me? That’s ridiculous,’ ” Bradley said. “He said, ‘Well, it was reported to me by the other umpires that you threw your bat at me.’ And I said, ‘That’s completely ridiculous. I’ve done a lot of things. I’m trying to turn it around.’ ” Bradley singled, then asked Winters if he told Runge he threw his bat, and Bradley said he told him he did. The argument ensued.

Like just about all the great Brazilian soccer stars, Marta Vieira da Silva is known by a single name. When she swivels, defenders spin to follow her darting feet. She’s slight, but her thin legs generate graceful power and audacious fakes. She can sprint and yet linger over the ball, punching it off her heel or instep without breaking stride. She grew up poor in Brazil and her idols were such one-name wonders as Rivaldo, Ronaldo and Ronaldinho. Her moves are similar, her goals equally ambitious. “They were all examples to me, the ones who we all knew,” the 21-year-old said after practice, speaking in her native Portuguese. “I was born playing football. I don’t know where I learned to play. I’ve been doing it since I was 7. My inspiration is my family, for all the tough things they have gone through.” Marta and her Brazilian teammates face the United States on Thursday in the semifinals of the Women’s World Cup in Hangzhou, one of China’s most popular tourist cities. The Americans, undefeated in 51 games over almost three years, will find a host of other single-name players across the midfield

The final is Sunday in Shanghai and three of the semifinalists have won a World Cup previously. “Marta has so much confidence when she is on the ball,” said U.S. midfielder Shannon Boxx, who played against her in the 2004 Olympic final, which the U.S. won 2-1 in extra time. “Their whole team is very crafty, but she is the one you cannot lose focus on because then she’ll take it to you. She may put you to sleep, then all of a sudden she’ll be ready.”

attendance record Major League Baseball set a record for total attendance and is on track to break its mark for average attendance. With one week left in the regular season, major league teams drew 76,215,082 spectators, the commissioner’s office said yesterday, topping last year’s 76,042,787. The average of 32,710 was up 4 percent from last year’s final average of 31,423. ■ Offerman pleads

not guilty to attack Former major league All-Star Jose Offerman pleaded not guilty yesterday to charges that he attacked a pitcher Offerman and catcher with his bat during a minor league game. Offerman, who is charged with two counts of seconddegree assault, charged the mound after he was hit with a pitch while batting for the Long Island Ducks on Aug. 14. He was accused of hitting two Bridgeport Bluefish players and indefinitely suspended the next day, a charge Offerman’s attorney denies.

Quarterback Craig Nall is back with the Buffalo Bills after agreeing to a one-year contract yesterday. The move came a day after Bills starter J.P. Losman sprained his left knee. Nall was cut by Buffalo three weeks ago. Losman is expected to miss up to two weeks, and Buffalo needed a veteran to back up rookie third-round draft pick Trent Edwards, who is expected to make his first NFL start Sunday against the Jets.

Police stopped Tyson after the boxer had spent the evening at Scottsdale’s Pussycat Lounge. An officer said he saw Tyson wiping a white substance off the dashboard of his black BMW.

Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson pleaded guilty yesterday to charges of drug possession and driving under the influence stemming from a traffic stop last year as he was leaving a nightclub. Tyson quietly acknowledged to a judge that he had cocaine and was impaired when he was stopped for driving erratically in Scottsdale, Ariz., on Dec. 29. He pleaded guilty to a single felony count of cocaine possession and a misdemeanor DUI count and faces up to four years and three months in prison when he is sentenced Nov. 19. A felony charge of possession of drug paraphernalia and a second misdemeanor DUI charge were dropped, according to the terms of a

over contested lease Seattle city officials filed a lawsuit yesterday to keep the SuperSonics from leaving town. The lawsuit filed in King County Superior Court was a counter move to a Sonics attempt to be released from their lease on KeyArena. According to the complaint, “The Sonics promised to ‘play all home games ... exclusively’” at the arena at the Seattle Center through Sept. 30, 2010.“The city, with the help of some fine lawyers, is standing up to a pro sports team,” city attorney Tom Carr said.“Too often, pro sports teams have run over local governments.” (AP)

That winning feeling By Tom Canavan The Associated Press

Plaxico Burress sent Donovan McNabb a text message late Sunday night, congratulating the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback on a good game while adding a warning. “I’ll see you next week,” the Giants receiver wrote his longtime friend, referring to next Sunday’s game at Giants Stadium. “I hope you don’t come up here looking for a win.” Burress didn’t say how McNabb responded, but it was obvious the message was meant to be humorous and both players enjoyed it. Winning makes for good conversations, and Burress and his teammates were in a good spirits yesterday after the Giants avoided the dreaded 0-3 start by rallying

from a 14-point halftime deficit for a 24-17 win over the Washington Redskins. “We just want to keep this feeling going, just win games,” Burress said yesterday. “It makes you feel a little different. You hold your head up a little higher. You try to do all the things you did the week before and get yourself to feel like this the next [Monday].” After horrible performances against Dallas and Green Bay that put the team under a media microscope, the Giants had a major turnaround against Washington. The defense, which had given up 80 points in the first two games, blanked the Redskins in the second half, sealing the game with a goal-line stand. The offense, which gave Washington 10 points with

Plaxico Burress gloved five catches on Sunday. first-half turnovers, scored touchdowns on three of its first five second-half possessions while controlling the ball almost 20 minutes.

St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson will miss at least one week with a partial tear of his left groin, an injury sustained in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s 24-3 loss at Tampa Bay. Rookie Brian Leonard, a second-round pick from Rutgers, will get his first start Sunday at Dallas. Offensive coordinator Greg Olson was hopeful Jackson would be out only one game. “He’s one of our best players, if not the best player,” offensive coordinator Greg Olson said. “As

Setterstrom is the second lineman the Rams have lost this season, after seven-time Pro Bowl tackle Orlando Pace sustained a season-ending shoulder injury in the opener. (AP)
