to open a new 630,000-square-foot,

perfect day for all Women to March,” he tweeted, in-
structing women to “get out there to celebrate the
historic milestones” of his presidency.
If there is another Women’s March a year from
now, Trump may indeed get his wish to see women
celebrating. It took some time to build, but the wom-

and fury on him.

Albany Bureau

ALBANY – The National Basketball

Association called on state lawmakers
this week to allow wagering over the
Internet and mobile devices if betting
on sports is ultimately approved.

But the NBA’s support is contingent
on certain safeguards and measures
being put in place, including each
sports league receiving a 1 percent cut
of all wagers placed on their games.
