Yeah, that would have been an "example" of automation. In any case, after Trump's reign we will probably get a Democratic Socialist like we should have this time. Trump's attempts at a Patriarchy will ultimately get him impeached. His supporters will soon see the folly of following a "master" who will cuddle and care for them. The idea of a free education for college or trade school will be more appealing as technology outpaces the general populations brain/skills power.

An Orthodox rabbi has been conducting services in a residential area of Short Hills illegally for years, and has sued at every turn to try and get it permitted.

Agreed... they SHOULD have applied for a variance, BEFORE building their synagogue. That's the correct process.

Easy solution - Get yourself a dash cam and plug it into an outlet with a direct feed from the battery - It will not drain your battery as I have had my dash cam 'on' for a week with no drama.
Then when you have parked illegally or overstayed in a spot download and save the file ... it will be a pain in the ass, but just save the file when you're too lazy to park legally.

If you do have footage of no ticket ever being served (date and time of ticket will tell you what footage file to look for) onto your car, make some money selling the story to the media

Hidden Hospital Costs Leave Some Patients With Sticker Shock

Hidden Hospital Costs Leave Some Patients With Sticker Shock

December 2, 2016 11:30 PM


NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Can you imagine paying $15 for one Tylenol, $8 for a tissue or $50 for a tongue depressor?

If a store charged those prices, you’d probably find somewhere else to shop. But as CBS2’s Dr. Max Gomez reported, those are actual hidden hospital fees.

“Seventeen thousand dollars is roughly what you would pay for a decent used car,” Ryan Edgerton said.

It’s also the cost of a handful of stitches and a tetanus shot at Bayonne Medical Center, according to a medical bill he received.

His sticker shock is not all that uncommon.

Baer Hanusz-Rajkowski was equally shocked by a bill from Bayonne for a cut to his finger that didn’t require any stitches at all.

“Nine thousand dollars is a lot to eat for a band-aid,” he said.

“That’s why we are in the crisis that we are in with health care,” said Pat Palmer, who runs a company that negotiates health care costs on behalf of patients.

She said she’s seen it all.

“Fifty-three thousand for the trauma team that never performed one thing,” Palmer said.

You might recall hearing about the $39 “skin to skin” fee for a nurse to hand a newborn to his mother at a Utah hospital. Palmer said that’s just another way to pad a patient’s bill.

She also takes issue with the wording of some hospital bills. For example, would you know what a “mucus recovery system” is?

“That would be a box of Kleenex,” Palmer said.

Martin Gaynor, an economist who specializes in health care costs, said hospitals, just like any other business, need to turn a profit to pay for overhead like salaries, equipment and regulatory compliance.

“Hospitals live and die on sales revenues,” he said. “The total charges, which are like a sticker price on a car, that’s what the hospital asks but not what they actually get paid.”

Gaynor said typically insurance companies will negotiate with hospitals over these “list prices” or “aspirational charges,” as they’re called.

“They get paid what are often called allowed amounts,” he said. “Usually a fraction of the charges.”

Additionally, a spokesperson for Carepoint Health System, which oversees Bayonne Medical Center, told CBS2 that when hospitals have a lot of uninsured or under-insured patients, some costs shift to the private payers.

At the end of the day, both Edgerton and Hanusz-Rajkowski were billed less than $1,000 out of pocket for their care, but still say it was too much.

Why is there a line at all? A nonprofit gathering place is just that, whether they worship Ganesh or basketball is immaterial.

These folks don't drive on the Sabbath, so they need a place in their neighborhood. Not accommodating that in some sensitive way will bring a shitstorm, there's storefront churches all over this town.


Not driving is a choice (dictated by their religion) just like it is also a choice where you reside. If having a place of worship close by is important, then it is incumbent upon each individual, or group of individuals, to make sure that where they are choosing to live can accommodate their needs, within the law. If the article is correct, the current zoning laws do not allow for a houses of worship on MLK. So, if the synagogue violates the law, why should it be allowed to continue operating as such? That's a slippery slope... what if someone opened a bar or club in a residential area? Should they be allowed to remain open because they already built it?


It's called applying for a variance, genius. Happens all the time.


Zactly, they should apply for, and receive, a variance.

Bruce Alston sentenced to 5 years probation in drug court, claiming codeine, alcohol addiction

By Michaelangelo Conte | The Jersey Journal

on December 02, 2016 at 6:49 PM, updated December 02, 2016 at 6:53 PM

JERSEY CITY - Former state Senate and Assembly candidate Bruce Alston was sentenced to five years probation in drug court today after having been accepted into the court due to alcohol and codeine addictions, following his guilty plea in a mortgage scam.

"It's something I look to put behind me," said Alston, 45, who pleaded guilty to theft by deception on July 21, 2016. "If the court does grant me the opportunity to enter this program, I will complete it. It is something that has disgraced my family, my father's legacy... I will make full restitution and I will redeem myself in to my community."

As part of his probation, Alston must, in part, make restitution to a mortgage company in the amount of $133,000, compete an intensive outpatient drug treatment program, refrain from the use of alcohol and drugs, stay away from places that sell alcohol and he must not possess a firearm.

These people might be able to help you out, but the fees are only worth it if you're seeking to have the entire ticket voided -

www.parkingticket.com

In my opinion you do have a valid case to have the entire ticket voided given that you had a ticket issued and then it disappeared.

This happened to me once. I ended up going to court and getting off for other reasons, and when I tried to ask about the ticket not actually being on the car, the judge said, forget it, since he had dismissed it completely.

I guess you could go to court and dispute the late fee portion, but if you were going to pay it anyway, would you really reschedule your day for the sake of $10? Yeah.

Does anyone else have a problem with parking tickets "disappearing" from their windshield? This past year (earlier in the year, and then just now) I got one for parking near the corner. (Not in the crosswalk, just when they randomly enforce the 25' rule.) I get it, guilty, I'll pay - whatever. But when the ticket "disappears" and you "fail to appear", the ticket price goes up another $10. Is there any way to avoid this?

Controversy swirls around Jersey City synagogue

By Terrence T. McDonald | The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY -- A three-story synagogue on Martin Luther King Drive is at the center of a controversy in a rapidly changing inner-city neighborhood.

The leader of the area's business group has asked the city to shut down the shul, pointing to zoning laws that largely do not permit houses of worship along Martin Luther King Drive. Members of the Hasidic Jewish community are objecting, and tell The Jersey Journal the location is a community center, not a formal synagogue.

The tussle comes as the historically black neighborhood has become more attractive to Hasidic Jews who say they have been priced out of Brooklyn. They say the Martin Luther King Drive location is a temporary meeting place as they make plans for a larger, more formal synagogue.

Much to the disappointment of the wild-eyed, aluminum hat wearing, bomb throwing leftist talking about the next 4 years of the Trump Administration.

Granted there is a fine line to straddle, implementing laws and regulations that encourage a positive business climate without appearing to be providing "corporate welfare". The foreign owned GM and Chrysler were not part of the financial meltdown, but they were added to get democrat support for "The Bailout" It was a kiss for the unions.

But at least business owners will not have to listen to the socialist mantra that swept the country from Obama, Warren and Reich types.... "You did not build your business... the govt. did"

That foolishness coming from people who never created private sector jobs or worry about meeting a payroll every week.
