Second shot: Hillary Clinton running again for president

WASHINGTON— Hillary Rodham Clinton jumped back into presidential politics on Sunday, announcing her much-awaited second campaign for the White House. "Everyday Americans need a champion. I want to be that champion," she said.

As she did in 2007, Clinton began her campaign for the 2016 Democratic nomination with a video.

Despite controversy, ‘Marvelous’ Heights architect leads transformative projects

Like an albatross, controversy seems to drape itself over some of the biggest Brooklyn projects of architect Jonathan Marvel. But in each project, it is not Marvel who killed the mythic sea bird and must wear it draped over his shoulders, but the nature of the projects, which involve complex interplay of public and private interests. Yet his brilliant innovations and sensitivity to environments do indeed transform each project. The albatross is, in effect, brought back to life, and the curse is lifted.
