The Hit Factory is a 25-unit condo building in Columbus Circle that once housed one of the most famous recording studios in the world — a place where everyone from the Rolling Stones to Bruce Springsteen to John Lennon to Mariah Carey cranked out some of the greatest and best-selling music recordings in history.
But for Anthony, who actively sought to move his career to New York after refusing a contract extension with the Nuggets, it’s not music history he cares about. He wants to return the wayward Knicks to NBA playoff prominence, and with a contract that runs through the end of the 2014-2015 season, the All-Star knows his time in New York could be short and intense, if he doesn’t deliver.

The list price for the 5,600-square-foot property is $ 4.75 million for a main house with 2 bedrooms, 5 fireplaces; a studio over the garage and a separate 1-bedroom unit. The three units are connected by a courtyard and patio, all tucked into an ivy-walled retreat guarded by twin sphinxes.
While the lore of Sinatra using 882 N. Doheny as his Hollywood getaway and of Monroe’s full-time tenure there during the early 1960s, Alaton deserves all the attention when it comes to allure of this property, especially the 4,000-square-foot main house that showcases Alaton’s genius. Here’s the skinny on the designer-gone-too-soon by the blog Bungalux:
Kalef Alaton was a Turkish-born interior designer who studied painting and sculpture in Paris before moving to Los Angeles and setting his eyes on interior design. By the time he died of AIDS in 1989 at age 49, Kalef was one of the most renowned designers in the world. In addition to designing for private clients throughout the world, Kalef designed interiors for the Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles, the Crescent Court Hotel in Dallas and the Park Royal Hotel in Melbourne, Australia.
Kalef, who spoke five languages and loved to travel, infused eclecticism into every project. It was common for one room to feature a combination of European antiques, custom pieces, and materials indigenous to a project’s site. As Kalef said himself on that very topic, ‘I might combine an old piece with something very modern, but I won’t know how it will look until the pieces are placed together. The concept of combining styles is similar to acquiring friends. It’s nice to have young friends and old friends, each unique.’”
What’s the harm in a simple label? It depends on whom you ask.
Proposition 37 would make California the first state in the union to require that certain plant or animal products sold be labeled if its genetic material has been modified. The law would also make it illegal for food companies to label genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, as “natural.”
Supporters of the Nov. 6 ballot measure say it’s just a label that will allow people to decide whether they want to eat genetically modified food. But opponents call the label unnecessary, and capable of injecting bureaucratic hurdles and billions in costs for businesses and consumers.
Do you think these extra labels are necessary? Would you value the additional knowledge? Tell us in the comments.
The state Legislative Analyst’s Office said that since GMOs entered the U.S. market in 1996, a vast majority of corn and soybean grown in the United States is genetically modified. According to some estimates, 40 percent to 70 percent of food found in grocery stores is genetically engineered.
Labeling would be regulated by the Department of Public Health, but retailers would be responsible for ensuring products are compliant with the law.
The government or private citizens will be able to file lawsuits that do not require demonstrating any damage was caused as a result of not labeling food.
The analyst’s office estimates that putting 37 into effect would cost “a few hundred thousand dollars to over $ 1 million annually.”
No specific estimates on costs associated with litigation are offered by the office, but it concluded “these costs are not likely to be significant in the longer run.”
Opponents of Prop. 37 believe labels could cost a lot more than the price of a sticker.
A study paid for by the “No on 37” campaign estimates that when lawsuits and other expenses are considered, the new law could cost more than $ 5 billion, and up to $ 400 annually for an average family.
Backers of Prop. 37 say retailers just need to follow the law, and voters shouldn’t be discouraged by scare tactics.
A poll conducted at the end of September found that 76.8 percent of Californians plan to vote “yes” on 37, with 71 percent stating their primary reason was because “people have the right to know what is in their food.”
Nearly half of all people who took the poll conducted by University of Oklahoma agricultural economists said they changed their vote from yes to no when they heard about potential increases in food costs.
Another poll found that more than 60 percent of Californians support Prop. 37.
Contrary to public opinion, editorial boards at more than 30 newspapers statewide have urged Californians to vote no on Prop. 37.
“No” on 37 votes may rise before Election Day as opponents inject millions of dollars into the race with help from big makers of pesticides and genetically engineered seeds like Monsanto, DuPont and Bayer.
By the end of September, the “No on 37” campaign raised nearly $ 35 million.
In contrast, the “Yes on 37” campaign, California Right to Know, raised about $ 4 million by the end of September. Despite a wide spending gap, the Yes on Prop. 37 campaign has garnered support from celebrities like Dave Matthews and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia stars Kaitlin Olson and Danny DeVito.
Both campaigns have been criticized for bending the truth or trying to scare the public, said the San Jose Mercury News.
California Right to Know cited a recent study by a French scientist that has been widely criticized and called insufficient by European food safety officials. It concluded that rats who eat Monsanto GMO corn have a higher rate of tumors and organ damage.
The study paid for by the “No on 37” campaign claims billions in costs, but assumes GMO food would be replaced with organic ingredients.
If approved, Proposition 37 would take effect in 2014.
Labels mean you know if your food was genetically engineered.
No current studies rule out health risks from eating GMOs. Labels would make it easier for people to choose to protect their families from afflictions some doctors say GMO lead to, including allergies and other health risks.
GMO labels are already a requirement in more than 40 countries, including Japan, China, India and European Union nations.
