NEW YORK -An Oceanside, N.Y., teenager is suing four former high school classmates, their parents and Facebook for $3 million for allegedly bullying her in a private forum on the social-networking service. Denise Finkel, who is now a student at the University at Albany, filed a lawsuit in State Supreme Court in Manhattan accusing the former classmates of creating a password-protected Facebook group "calculated to hold the plaintiff up to public hatred, ridicule and disgrace." The defendants - Michael Dauber, Jeffrey Schwartz, Leah Herz and Melinda Danowitz - are, like Finkel, 2008 graduates of Oceanside High School.

TEL AVIV, Israel - Over on Baltimore's Chauncy Avenue back in 1948 they called him Ralph Finkel. He was 20, studious, fresh out of the Marines, and thinking that maybe he should finish his degree at St. John's College.But his Marine Corps buddies had put an unshakable idea in his head: Go fight for your people, they said. Go to the infant State of Israel, where the Jews were locked in a war for survival.So off he went on a tortuous months-long journey, coming ashore at last from the belly of an Italian fishing boat with 600 recruits stuffed into the hold like the catch of the day.Today, Finkel is 70, lives in Tel Aviv, and goes by his Hebrew name, Raphael Ben-Yosef.

On a cool, breezy afternoon, freshman Leah Hartley wandered the quad at Anne Arundel Community College searching for her future. The 18-year-old North County High School graduate approached a table with engineers, saw the guts of a computer microchip and turned away quickly, convinced that electrical engineering was not her cup of tea. She passed by a group of teachers, ignoring their spiel, but taking them up on their offer of a free post-it pad. But...

Evander Holyfield and George Foreman are likely to meet in a rematch Nov. 8 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas -- now that a last-ditch effort by promoter Don King to make a Holyfield-Mike Tyson fight has failed.Holyfield's promoter, Dan Duva, and manager, Shelly Finkel, met yesterday at the New York offices of Home Box Office with Foreman promoter Bob Arum and adviser Ron Weathers to hammer out details for a reprise of their April 19 bout, which was won by Holyfield. According to Finkel,an agreement was reached calling for roughly the same financial arrangement as in the first bout -- guarantees of $20 million for Holyfield and $12.5 million for Foreman.

NEW YORK -- Surprise, surprise. Evander Holyfield chose The Bully over The Belly.In an announcement that shocked much of the boxing world, baffled and bemused George Foreman and enraged Bob Arum, representatives for the undisputed heavyweight champion reached agreement yesterday for a scheduled 12-round fight between Holyfield and former champion Mike Tyson Nov. 8 at Caesars Palace.The fight is expected to be the richest in boxing history, and it will have to be to pay the fighters their guaranteed purses: $30 million for Holyfield and $15 million for Tyson, with hefty percentages of pay-per-view television receipts tacked on. The purses for both are the highest ever paid to a champion and challenger, as well as the highest amounts paid to any athletes for a single performance.

NEW YORK -- Larry Holmes, wearing a patch over his right eye, almost secured a heavyweight title fight yesterday when Riddick Bowe's manager apparently overplayed his hand with negotiators for Evander Holyfield.But Rock Newman, who admitted he "spent the entire day telling people we weren't going to do the deal," called Dan Duva, who with Shelly Finkel forms Holyfield's management team, last night to tell him he had reconsidered. The Holyfield camp will decide this weekend between Holmes and Bowe for the champion's next $20 million payday, in late May or early June.

NEW YORK -- Even in boxing, the inevitable sometimes happens, so put it down for the fall, late September or November, somewhere in Las Vegas. Evander Holyfield and Mike Tyson. Anything else you read on the subject is just the hucksters haggling over the price.The two sides -- Dan Duva and Shelly Finkel for the champion, Don King for Tyson -- have yet to meet face to face, but already they have moved closer.King started by demanding parity, 50-50. Holyfield is insisting on two-thirds, one-third.

Last November, seven months after losing his heavyweight crown to Michael Moorer and being advised by doctors to retire from the ring because of a heart disorder, Evander Holyfield received a clean bill of health from the Mayo Clinic.The former champion was told that his condition after the fight had been misdiagnosed and that his extreme fatigue and "stiff heart" had resulted from over-medication.But he still had to convince himself that he could return to the ring without great risk to his health.

NEW YORK -- Don't call it a tragedy. Tragedy is a kid lighting up a crack pipe. Tragedy is a senior citizen getting hit over the head by a mugger. Mike Tyson's tragedy is that he came from that environment and arrogantly thumbed his nose at any chance of redemption.It was the same arrogance that cost him the heavyweight title two years, to the very hour, before he lost a unanimous decision last night in Indianapolis. The night before he was knocked out by Buster Douglas, he sneered, "How dare they challenge me with their primitive skills."

In a shocking switch yesterday, Mike Tyson was in and George Foreman was out as heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield's opponent at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nov. 8."It's a done deal," said Al Braverman, matchmaker for Don King, Tyson's exclusive promoter.The agreement with King was confirmed by Holyfield's financial adviser, Shelly Finkel, who only three days ago had said that a Holyfield-Tyson fight was a dead issue, and that Holyfield was prepared to sign for a rematch with Foreman, who lost a 12-round decision to the champion April 19 in Atlantic City, N.J."
