    This feels like something from a William Gibson cyberpunk dystopia novel, where the government has become so weak and useless, private corporations have been taking over the basic upkeep of the nation. But it’s not a William Gibson novel, there’s no plucky protagonist with some sort of cybernetic implant, it’s just America in 2018, with crumbling roads that Domino’s has decided to fix. For the sake of the pizzas. Domino’s is tired of their innocent pizzas, who only wish to serve humankind, being beaten all to hell by poorly-maintained roads. They even have a website that shows, in graphic, pizza-box-cam...

    The two young daughters of the pizza guy grabbed up by immigration officers when he made a delivery to a Brooklyn military base still don’t know why their daddy hasn’t come home. “I haven’t told them anything. It is hard for a 3-year-old girl to understand,” mom Sandra Chica told The Post. “They only know that their Daddy isn’t here.” Chica said she’s been trying to convince the girls — Luciana, 3, and Antonia, 2 — that their father, illegal immigrant Pablo Villavicencio, is “out working.” “The older one, she always asks me why daddy’s in the news, and I...

    “I was delivering food to the military base and they detained me, I have been there before and always go in and never have had any problems, they actually know me and the sergeant knows me for some time doing delivery,” Villavicencio told The Post over the phone from immigration detention Wednesday. “Last Friday there was a different security guard and he told me I needed to go get another pass to enter. And I proceeded to do that. A tall man with dark skin started to ask me many questions, he asked me about why I didn’t have any...

    Scientists and chefs in Italy say they have made a pizza which prevents cancer and heart disease. The Pizza Pascalina, designed by scientists in Naples, has been called 'the pizza that extends life' and an 'anti-tumour' pizza. The Pascalina is packed with ingredients from the Mediterranean diet which are known to have health benefits. Neither cheese nor meat feature on the dish; its toppings include tomatoes, olives and rapini – a type of broccoli. It will be on sale at the Napoli Pizza Village, a pizza festival in Naples this week. Scientists from the Istituto Nazionale Tumori in Naples –...

    ALBANY - The prosecutor who sent two local Muslim men ensnared in an FBI terror sting to prison is on the short list for a federal judgeship. Many in the Capital District's growing Muslim community are outraged. Members of Albany's Muslim Solidarity Committee say they will do everything in their power to ensure Glenn Suddaby doesn't receive the nomination. The activists formed their group after the arrest and conviction of Mohammad Hossain, an Albany pizza shop owner, and Yassin Aref, an Albany imam. Despite grass roots opposition, Suddaby has at least one pretty big name supporter - U.S. Sen. Charles...

    Police in New York say they’ve pulled the body of an assistant U.S. attorney from a river. For nearly three decades, George Burgasser worked as a federal prosecutor in Buffalo and Washington. Police found his body in the Niagara River Sunday night. North Tonawanda Detective Capt. Thomas Krantz says the 62-year-old Burgasser was last seen on his son’s boat showing it to a group of friends. Some news reports listed Burgasser as retired from the Justice Department but his Linkedin page noted he still worked for the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Burgasser was part of the DOJ’s original team to fight...

    Unlike other food establishments that have static menu options, pizza is highly variable: Domino’s offers consumers 34 million different combinations of pizza. (iStock Photo) _______________________________________________________________________________________________________ As the owner of 18 Domino’s stores in Texas, I do not cut corners, whether on pizzas or complying with the law. Unfortunately, on May 7 the law will become especially burdensome and unhelpful to my customers. That day, President Trump’s FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb will implement a nationwide, Obama-era menu-labeling rule requiring restaurants with 20 or more locations to post in-store menu boards listing the calories of every item sold. I fully support efforts...

    Thanks in large part to President Trump’s aggressive deregulation agenda—through which the president has demonstrated a commitment to cutting or restructuring unnecessary, burdensome rules that hamper innovation and growth—the economy is booming. Unfortunately, one poorly considered rule that seems to have escaped his notice will hurt the businesses that provide one of America’s favorite foods: pizza.The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) rule, a byproduct of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and slated to go into effect on May 7, will require businesses with 20 or more locations that sell highly customizable food items—such as pizza companies, convenience stores, supermarkets...

    As our two-engine speedboat starts the journey back to Port Denarau Marina, a major port on Fiji's main island, we lurch to an unexpected stop. A seal on the fuel injector on the engine has loosened, so we sputter back to the mainland at half the usual pace. But the possibility of such a transit hiccup is the chance you take when visiting a floating pizza bar in the middle of the South Pacific. Opened in 2013, Cloud 9 bobs above Roro Reef in the Mamanuca archipelago, about 45 minutes off the west coast of Fiji. "Prior to Cloud 9,...

    If you’re a fan of corny commercials featuring prominent NFL faces peddling mediocre pizza while you watch football, we’ve got bad news. The NFL and Papa John’s broke up on Tuesday. The pizza chain announced the news during an earnings call Tuesday afternoon. “We will shift our marketing from the broader NFL sponsorship,” CEO Steve Ritchie said on a conference call with investors. The NFL and Papa John’s released a joint statement that the pizza chain will still do business on a regional level with teams in 22 markets.

    Day-old pizza is God's gift to college students, starving artists and anyone who thought it was a brilliant idea to order that extra-large double-meat at 2 a.m. after coming home from the bar, only to go sleepy-peepy halfway through the first slice. But while cold pizza is a bona fide breakfast of champions, what about room-temperature pizza? Will you get sick if you throw down a few slices of the pepperoni that sat in a greasy cardboard box next to your bed for the last eight hours? The official answer — don't risk it.

    If America cannot have reasonable gun control, can we at least stop criminals from weaponizing pizza? This is one of no fewer than 45 questions that will run through your mind while viewing the below story, a context-free excerpt posted in a local Nextdoor neighborhood forum. What the tale of the infamous Pizza Bandit of Minneapolis lacks in substance, it makes up for in visuals. As captured and shared by the (consistently wonderful) Best of Nextdoor Twitter account, these images of a pizza slice "strategically" wedged in front of a motion sensor light has the subject line "Suspicious activity."
