Furnace inspection regulations, New York State?

Are there any laws or regulations requiring a landlord to make periodic inspections of the furnace (oil burning) in a single family house in New York State, Suffolk County, Long Island? It seems to fall under a generic 'Duty of Care' but I'm not sure if there is anything that compels an inspection before the thing blows up or expels toxic gas.

How do I clear celebrity photos easily and effortlessly?

"We need to use that picture of that pregnant singer from the cover of Mary Claire in the next show," says my boss. "What's my budget," I ask? There's a pause. My budget is nothing. "Can't you just get permission? As a promotion?" I make a note. "When do we need it by?" "Yesterday. As long as you get me the release by Friday, we're good." Yes, this is my job. Anyone have tips on successfully licensing photos of celebrities... for as little money and hassle as possible? [more inside]

Is there a word for this? One person's rights expressed in terms of another person's rights.

I want to describe something and I can't think of a good term for it. What should I call rights that "really" belong to one person or other entity, but which are expressed in relation to another person or entity? E.g., someone might not want to say that animals have a right to freedom, so he says that freeing animals protects the right of humans to avoid psychological distress. Rather than say that illegal immigrants have a right to free immunizations, he might say that the immunizations protect the rights of citizens to avoid epidemics. Is there a word for this?

landlord tenant law in the US regarding utilities

Is it legal for landlords in the United States and the State of Colorado to pay the utilities for a building and then evenly divide the sum between all of the apartments? Someone told me that there was law against this but I have been unable to locate it. They said that essentially all units must be metered or the rent can be raised to "include utilities" but that they could not pass utilities on without metering apartments so that each pays their share.

Flying football cows

I was watching yesterday's game on ABC-TV between USC and Arizona. Right at half-time three live cows para-glided into the stadium from above. Two of them were shown landing on the playing field, while the third cow landed somewhere in the stands on top of some cowering fans and a hot dog vendor. The tv quickly switched to the network half-time sports show, and when the second half started, not a word was spoken about the flying cows. I can't find a word about it in today's online press. Can someone enlighten me as to why these cows were flown onto the football field in Los Angeles at half-time?
