NAPLES, Italy (AP) — Wood is burning again in Naples’ pizza ovens, giving a symbolic and savory boost to Neapolitans after two months of lockdown meant an end to their most iconic and favorite food. Pizzerias reopened Monday night in the birthplace of pizza, albeit under restrictions and for home delivery only. Whereas pizzerias in Rome and elsewhere were allowed to operate for take-out and delivery service, they were banned in Naples out of fears that such a congested, high-density city coul...

Islanders’ 5 Best Head Coaches

The New York Islanders are one of the NHL’s most storied franchises, making their mark on the league during their brisk ascension in the late 1970s and early 1980s. After their four straight Stanley Cups and 19 consecutive playoff series wins, the Islanders found themselves on a bumpy road as they fought to stay relevant in a growing league. Since their inaugural season in 1972-73, they have had 17 coaches with varying degrees of success, though some stood out more than others. 5: Ted Nolan...

The Congressional Progressive Caucus is (still) awash in corporate money

The 78-member Congressional Progressive Caucus is meant to be the democracy-friendly, corporate-hostile wing of the Democratic Party, which is why the caucus announced a year ago that it would stop accepting corporate money -- but a year later, nearly every member is still accepting corporate money in their individual capacity. The CPC co-chair is Mark Pocan [D-WI], and it was he who announced the no-corporate-money policy, saying, "“If we are going to end the influence of corporations and ...

Pressley Defeats Capuano in Mass Primary Stunner

BOSTON (AP) — Ayanna Pressley is all but assured of becoming the first black woman elected to Congress from Massachusetts, the latest example of the Democratic Party’s embrace of diversity and progressive politics as the recipe for success in the Trump era. The 44-year-old’s upset victory against longtime Democratic Rep. Michael Capuano in Tuesday’s primary sets the stage for Pressley to represent an area once served by Tip O’Neill and John F. Kennedy. Her win comes at the tail end of a primar...

Isles Counting on Trotz to Be a Winner

Will Barry Trotz become the New York Islanders’ most successful coach since Al Arbour? That’s what Lou Lamoriello had in mind when he signed Trotz to a five-year deal in June, and that is certainly what the fans are hoping will happen. With all the coaching wins he has under his belt, along with a Stanley Cup victory in his back pocket, a better question might be how long will it take for him to earn that distinction?

Someone’s to Blame for Islanders Recent Skid

When Doug Weight was promoted to head coach in the offseason, the hope was the New York Islanders could pick up right where they left off. Weight took over for former head coach Jack Capuano about halfway through last season, and guided the Islanders to a 24-12-4 record. After a strong finish, Weight was rewarded with an extension. This season, the Islanders started off hot and lit up the scoresheets. Weight had the Islanders playing faster and their offense benefited from his coaching philosoph...
