|New Bitcoin-based security bounces in trading debut on CMENews 10 ABC / 1 h. 49 min. ago more|
NEW YORK (AP) — A new security based on the price of the digital currency bitcoin is trading lower after its debut on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. The CME Group, which owns the exchange, opened up futures of bitcoin, which has soared in value and volatility this year, for trading on Sunday evening. By 2:00 a.m. EST (0700 GMT) Monday the futures contract that expires in January was at $19,440.00 after opening higher at $20,650. The CME futures, like the ones that CME competitor the Cboe started trading last week, do not involve actual bitcoin. The CME’s futures will track an index of bitcoin prices pulled from several private exchanges. The Cboe’s futures track bitcoin prices on the particular private exchange known as Gemini. Each contract sold on the CME is for five bitcoin.

SARANAC LAKE, N.Y. (AP) — The Adirondack Mountain village of Saranac Lake got a taste of snowshoe racing early this year and now has created its own event. The Adirondack Snowshoe Fest (https://www.facebook.com/AdirondackSnowshoeFest/ ) is set for late February as the area tries to promote its brand to boost local tourism a year after it hosted the 2017 World Snowshoe Championships. That event attracted more than 400 competitors from over 15 nations, even though it was nearly canceled because of warm weather. Adirondack Snowshoe Fest organizers are putting together a two-day weekend event package in hopes that many participants will decide to stay overnight. The festival will feature a series of races for all skill levels plus entertainment options.

|Foles throws 4 TDs, Eagles get first-round byeNews 10 ABC / 8 h. 13 min. ago more|
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Nick Foles replaced the injured Carson Wentz, and nothing really changed for the Philadelphia Eagles. They got four touchdown passes from their quarterback, like they did a week ago, and won again to secure a first-round playoff bye. Another ho-hum day for the best team in the NFC and NFC East champions. Foles hit four different receivers on touchdown passes ranging from 3 to 13 yards in his first start, and the Eagles (12-2) rallied from an early 14-point deficit to defeat the surprising New York Giants 34-29 on Sunday. “I thought he played well,” Eagles coach Doug Pederson said of Foles. “There are some things he would like to do over. Every game is going be that way. I thought he handled himself extremely well, a lot of poise. He did a nice job.” There was speculation the Eagles would rely on their running game this week against the Giants (2-12) to give Foles time to adjust to the offense. Pederson ruled that out. “With him coming out and saying he’s not changing anything, it says a lot about his confidence in me and his confidence in the players in the offense,” said Foles, who completed 24 of 38 passes for 237 yards and no interceptions. Foles clearly is no Wentz. He is more a pocket passer, and there were times in the game when Wentz clearly would have been scrambling for a first down. Foles carried twice for zero yards. The Eagles made a late stand on first-and-goal in the final minute in edging the Giants for the second time this season, spoiling a three-touchdown, season-high 434-yard passing game by Eli Manning. “We know what he’s capable of and that showed today,” Giants interim coach Steve Spagnuolo said after Manning’s ninth 400-yard game. Manning, who threw for 366 yards earlier this year against the Eagles, said the Giants had a good game plan. “We got the ball out quickly, playing fast with some tempo stuff,” said the 36-year-old who finished 37 of 57. “I think that confused them a little bit.” Foles hit Alshon Jeffery, Zach Ertz, Trey Burton and Nelson Agholor on scoring passes ranging from 3 to 13 yards in filling in for Wentz, who tore an ACL last week and was lost for the season after a brilliant year. The Eagles also got two field goals from Jake Elliott and three blocked kicks from their special teams, foiling an extra point, a punt and field goal. The block on the punt set up a touchdown. Philadelphia will play its final two regular-season game at home and then wait for the conference semifinal. “It’s obviously something great,” Foles said of the bye. “I was fortunate to be a part of it last year in Kansas City. We still have a lot of work to do this season. The big thing is you let your body recover.” Manning hit Tavarres King on two touchdowns and Sterling Shepard on one. Orleans Darkwa scored on a short run and Aldrick Rosas kicked a 28-yard field goal. Manning drove the Giants from their 25 with 3:56 to play to the Eagles 9 with about a minute to go. A 2-yard loss on a pass to Shepard, an incompletion in the end zone and 5-yard run by Shane Vereen got New York to the Philadelphia 6 with 48 seconds to play. Right tackle Bobby Hart had a procedure penalty on fourth down, putting the ball at the 11. Manning then threw a pass to Evan Engram at the back of the end zone that was high and incomplete. The Giants complained bitterly after the play that Eagles safety Corey Graham held the rookie tight end’s left arm and should have been called for pass interference. “I definitely thought it was defensive pass interference,” Engram said. “Fourth down. It was really obvious, but no call.” The Giants led 23-21 at the half and the Eagles took the lead for good in the third quarter on a 28-yard field goal by Elliott and a 10-yard TD catch by Agholor . Leading 20-6, mistakes by Manning and special teams got the Eagles back in the game in a less than three-minute span in the second quarter. A 37-yard interception return by Ronald Darby to the Giants 18 set up Foles’ second touchdown pass, a 10-yarder to Ertz, cutting New York’s lead to 20-14. Kamu Grugier-Hill blocked Brad Wing’s punt on the Giants’ next series. Foles found a wide-open Burton on a 13-yard pass to give the Eagles a 21-20 lead. Rosas had a go-ahead 28-yard field goal with 20 seconds left in the half for a 23-21 lead. BLOCKS The last time a team had a hat trick of blocked kicks was the Buffalo Bills against New England on Nov. 24, 1991. UP NEXT Eagles: host Oakland on Dec. 25. Giants: at Arizona on Sunday.
|Ingram, Thomas lift Saints over Jets, 31-19News 10 ABC / 8 h. 17 min. ago more|
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Mark Ingram gave the Saints much more than the first-down run they needed to wind down the clock on the Jets. His determined burst across the line of scrimmage thrust him into New York’s defensive backfield with too much speed and vigor for anyone to catch him — a fitting finish to one of his better days in a memorable season. Ingram ran for two touchdowns and gained 151 yards from scrimmage , capped by his late 50-yard TD run, and New Orleans overcame three turnovers to defeat the reeling Jets 31-19 on Sunday. “Getting the ball into his hands is obviously what we want to do,” Saints center Max Unger said of Ingram, who has eclipsed 1,000 yards rushing for a second straight season. “We’ve got to get him going because when he has a chance to make plays like that — you can see it — he’s explosive.” Ingram’s 54-yard gain on a screen, which set up a field goal, was the longer of his two 50-yard plays. “He’s making people miss. He’s creating,” said fellow running back Alvin Kamara, who added a 10-yard touchdown catch. The Saints (10-4) needed to beat the Jets (5-9) to maintain a tenuous hold on first place in the NFC South. New Orleans leads Carolina (10-4) on head-to-head results. Atlanta (8-5) can pull one game behind by beating Tampa Bay on Monday night. The Jets, who were eliminated from the playoffs, kept it close until Saints receiver Michael Thomas’ fourth-quarter touchdown on a 4-yard slant made it 24-13. Bryce Petty made his first start at quarterback for New York this season, completing 19 of 39 passes for 179 yards and a touchdown. He was intercepted twice — once by Craig Robertson on a tipped pass and once by Marshon Lattimore on a long, inconsequential throw as the game ended. “As far as understanding the game plan and knowing what you see out there, I felt really confident,” Petty said. “The more times I get out there, the better I’m going to get.” Jets coach Todd Bowles offered a more tepid assessment, but said the third-year QB remains the starter. “He just didn’t make any plays,” Bowles said. “Plays that we needed him to make to win the game, he didn’t make. He will get better at that.” Petty’s 2-yard touchdown pass to former Louisiana-Lafayette running back Elijah McGuire cut New Orleans’ lead to 24-19 with 1:51 left. But the Jets’ onside kick failed. Drew Brees completed 26 of 36 passes for 285 yards and two touchdowns, but also was intercepted deep in New Orleans territory to set up a Jets field goal at the end of the first half. MATURE MIKE Thomas made nine catches for 93 yards, giving him 94 receptions this season and making him just the second NFL player with at least 90 receptions in each of his first two seasons — the other being the New York Giants’ Odell Beckham. Thomas made first-down grabs of 17, 20 and 9 yards to sustain the drive that ended with his 4-yard TD. “They need you to be the man and they need you to make plays,” Thomas said. “That’s what I signed up for and that’s I like to do. When the ball is the air, I want to make a play.” FAST START New Orleans scored 17 points on its first three drives. Ingram had four catches for 80 yards on the first two series and scored the game’s first touchdown on a 1-yard run that made it 10-0. Bilal Powell briefly pulled New York to 10-7 with his 2-yard run before New Orleans quickly answered with Kamara’s TD. STAGNANT STINT The Saints went seven straight possessions without scoring between the Kamara and Thomas TDs. In addition to third-down failures, New Orleans turned the ball over three times — once on Brees’ interception and twice inside the Jets 20 on receiver Brandon Coleman’s fumbles. MISSING IN ACTION Bowles had little to say about his decision to leave healthy defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson back in New York . “We’re dealing with that as an internal matter,” Bowles said. “We’ll let you know later.” INJURIES Jets defensive lineman Leonard Williams, whose interception set up the Jets’ field goal late in the first half, left in the third quarter with concussion symptoms. Saints tight end Michael Hoomanawanui left in the first half with concussion symptoms. Right guard Larry Warford went out with concussion symptoms late in the first half after he tried to make a tackle on Williams’ interception. UP NEXT Jets: Host the Chargers in a game with playoff implications for San Diego. Saints: Host the Falcons in what could be a pivotal contest in the NFC South race.
|McCoy breaks 10,000, leads Bills to 24-16 win over DolphinsNews 10 ABC / 8 h. 21 min. ago more|
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — With his personal chase for 10,000 career yards rushing out of the way, LeSean McCoy can turn his focus on reaching an even better destination: the playoffs. McCoy scored twice and became the 30th player to hit 10,000, while keeping the Buffalo Bills firmly in the AFC playoff picture following a 24-16 win over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. “I’m happy it’s done,” McCoy said of his personal accomplishment. “Now I look forward to trying to get in these playoffs. We took care of business today.” Tyrod Taylor showed no signs of a bruised left knee that sidelined him for one game. The quarterback went 17 of 29 for 224 yards passing and a touchdown. He added 42 yards rushing and scored on a 9-yard scamper in a game Buffalo never trailed. On defense, Buffalo intercepted Jay Cutler to end Miami’s first two possessions of the second half. Then, rookie Tre’Davious White sealed the win with an interception with 28 seconds remaining — and a play after Miami punter Matt Haack recovered an onside kick at Miami’s 37. The loss all but mathematically eliminated the Dolphins (6-8) from playoff contention; they ended a seven-year drought last season. Buffalo improved to 8-6 to match the team’s best record through 14 games during the team’s 17-year playoff drought — the longest active streak in North America’s four major professional sports. The Bills were 8-6 in both 2004 and 2014 but missed the playoffs with 9-7 finishes. Buffalo 6-2 home record was its best finish at Orchard Park since 1999. The Bills now hit the road to continue their playoff pursuit in closing the season at New England next week and then at Miami on Dec. 31. Frustration began to settle in for the Dolphins. They were undone by familiar inconsistencies at quarterback and on defense, while looking nothing like the team that stunned New England 27-20 on Monday night. “We just made too many mistakes,” Ndamukong Suh said of a defense that allowed the Bills to convert 7 of 15 third-down opportunities after limiting its past two opponents to convert 1 of 24. “A loss is a loss no matter when it is,” receiver Jarvis Landry added of an offense that needed five snaps from inside the Bills 5 to finally score its first touchdown on Kenyan Drake’s 1-yard run with 7:03 remaining. “Obviously, we knew everything that was at stake and we didn’t make it happen.” McCoy opened the scoring with a 4-yard run to cap Buffalo’s opening drive. Then, he put Buffalo up 14-6 with a 16-yard catch with 6:05 left in the second quarter on a drive during which McCoy became the 30th player to break the 10,000-yard rushing milestone. The ninth-year player reached the plateau with a 14-yard burst off right guard . McCoy said he got the wind knocked out of him while being tackled by Kiko Alonso. After missing just one snap, McCoy returned and scored two plays later. McCoy finished with 50 yards rushing, upping his career total to 10,011, and had four catches for 46 yards. Richie Incognito not only enjoyed a front-row seat in watching McCoy burst past him on his way to his 10,000th yard, the veteran right guard was impressed by the resolve the Bills have shown in exceeding low preseason expectations. “If I would’ve told you guys we’re going to be 6-2 at home back in August, I think you guys would have laughed at us,” he said. “No one’s laughing now,” Incognito added. “We’re cruising, man. All eyes on the prize.” THURMAN ON SHADY Bills Hall of Fame running back Thurman Thomas had no difficulty putting McCoy’s value to Buffalo into perspective. “We’re not talking about being in the playoff race right now and we’re not leading the league the past years,” Thomas said. “We’re not doing that if we don’t have him with the Buffalo Bills.” LAST HURRAH? Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams wasn’t prepared to say if he might have played his final game at New Era Field. The 12-year veteran contemplated retiring after last season and is in the final year of his contract. Williams did take issue with teammate Adolphus Washington drawing an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for attempting to punch the ball out of Drake’s hands while the running back was on the sideline after being stopped at the 1. “That’s dumb football no matter what happened or what that penalty was,” Williams said. “I don’t care if they talk ugly about your mother. Handle it after the game.” DOLPHINS IN DECEMBER Miami dropped to 4-9 in games played at Orchard Park, New York, in December or later. INJURIES Dolphins: CB T.J. McDonald left in the fourth quarter with a shoulder injury. Bills: CB E.J. Gaines was carted off in the fourth quarter with a knee injury. UP NEXT Dolphins: At Kansas City on Dec. 24. Bills: At New England on Dec. 24.

|Ice safety critical for skating and fishing during winter monthsNews 10 ABC / 10 h. 20 min. ago more|
LATHAM, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Ice skating and fishing this time of year is hard to resist, but fire departments in the area want to remind people of some ice safety. The Chief of the Verdoy Fire Department says that unless they know the pond extremely well, it’s better to air on the safe side and stay off the ice. “Unless you’re a seasoned fisherman and you know the area very well and you grew up on it even then it can still be a little risky. We suggest don’t go on it,” said Nicholas Dinovo, Verdoy Fire Department Chief. If you do, make sure to always first check the ice for warning signs. “If you see ice that is sticking up, usually that means that it’s frozen and then it thawed and was frozen again; anything that just doesn’t look smooth like an ice skating rink that’s usually the worst to be on,” Dinovo said. One big cause of people falling through the ice is going after a pet that has slipped in. “Don’t go out there after your pet. Just let them do their thing and call 911 and we’ll get there and take care of it,” Dinovo said.

Its seizure was part of an aggressive campaign by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. to repatriate antiquities believed to have been illegally looted from the countries where they were found. At a news conference, Friday, Vance announced he was forming a new antiquities trafficking unit. Already this year New York prosecutors have seized numerous objects from city museums, auction houses, art fairs and private residences that it said were looted decades ago from ruins mostly in the Middle East.
|New state law requires MTA to post financial plansWIVB / 18 h. 17 min. ago more|
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — A new state law in New York seeks to shine a light on the New York City subway system’s finances. The measure, signed into law last week by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo, will require the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to post its financial plans online before the agency’s board can call a vote. The MTA has in the past approved multi-year, billion-dollar spending plans with little public oversight. Democratic state Assemblyman David Buchwald of Westchester County sponsored the new law. He says the public deserves to know how the MTA is spending its money and that the new rule ensures the agency won’t be able to leave the public in the dark.

NEW YORK (AP) — Health leaders say they are alarmed about reports that officials at the nation’s top public health agency are being told not to use certain words in official budget documents, including “fetus,” ”transgender” and “science-based.” The health community was reacting to a story in The Washington Post , which said the prohibition arose at a meeting of senior budget officials at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

A CDC official confirmed Saturday there was a recent meeting in which officials were given feedback to reconsider language in budget documents.
