You're missing the point. The point was the process was unorganized and unprofessional. The harder they make this process, the more people will want to avoid it.

Maybe take your own advice?

I don't think the "smug" attitude is directly and specifically for her. For anyone who has dealt with government workers, any and ALL airport workers, and actually any and all low wage workers, their standard attitude is smug and contempt - even though they were not forced to do the job. Most of those people gave me the feeling that they're too good for their job.

I remember many years ago while I was applying for a US citizenship, I was SO SO SO upset with the attitude of the people that I dealt with that I almost said, "F&*K it, it's not worth my time to get the citizenship while I get treated like sh&t by these people.

Anyone who have gone through security check lines at the airport would have experienced such "smug: attitude.

Tipping is optional, so who is being squeezed?


If I decide to tip - I'd like to be able to split the tip up between the waiter/server/cook/owner and whoever contributed to my experience. Double-the-tax is pretty neanderthal - as are tip jars. My bill should tell me who did what - so I can allocate a tip (if any).


you might be overthinking this.

Their pizza is amazing, their delivery is not. Don't have any issues during a week day but if you order on a Sunday expect to wait forever. Better to just pick it up yourself.

A Defense Of The Ebola Quarantine

Forbes
October 25, 2014

When Andrew Cuomo and Chris Christie, the governors of New York and New Jersey, announced that they would be putting in place an enforced quarantine when medical workers who had contact with Ebola in Liberia, Sierra Leone, or Guinea enter the United States, my immediate reaction was that this was a bad decision. The reason: it would make it practically impossible to for doctors to volunteer to go to those places and risk their lives to try to help end the epidemic...

...But not everyone agrees. I also contacted Pascal J. Imperato, the Dean at SUNY Downstate Medical Center and former New York City Health Commissioner. He surprised me with the strength of his response. His basic response to the idea that fewer volunteers will be going to Africa is to say that maybe volunteers aren’t that effective anyway, and that their lack of actual experience may make them more likely to catch Ebola. Imperato writes:

I strongly support the decision by New York and New Jersey to quarantine those entering these states who have been exposed to those with active Ebola disease infections in Africa. This especially applies to volunteer US health care workers who have been providing health care to Ebola patients in Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone. As demonstrated by the case of Dr. Craig Spencer, self-monitoring simply does not work. The New York and New Jersey quarantine regulations are timely since they address the next phase in the control and prevention of this epidemic, and that is the responsible management of returning medical volunteers and others with a history of close contact with Ebola patients.

I would add that while the willingness of such volunteers to go to West Africa is admirable, good intentions are no substitute for competent practice and experience in caring for Ebola patients. Most American medical volunteers working in the epidemic zone are there short-term, their pre-departure preparation excellent to uneven, and their previous experience in treating patients with a highly communicable and deadly disease often non-existent.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has hesitated to implement the quarantine regulations now in force in New York and New Jersey out of a concern that they will discourage medical volunteers from going to the epidemic zone in West Africa. However, such a position is based on an unproven assumption that these volunteers are vital to the treatment of Ebola patients. This assumption has not yet been supported by firm evidence. A revolving door of short term and quickly trained American volunteers leaves many understandably uncomfortable since they are often trained, but not practice experienced. It is the latter that is crucial in preventing care givers from acquiring this infection in a therapeutic setting.

================================

Ebola quarantine will be imposed for all health workers returning from Africa in NY, NJ

By REUTERS October 25, 2014

...The policy change came a day after Dr. Craig Spencer, a 33-year-old New Yorker, was diagnosed with Ebola at Bellevue Hospital soon after returning from Guinea. Spencer had been working with Ebola patients in the hard-hit West African country for the humanitarian group Doctors Without Borders.

"He's a doctor and even he didn't follow the guidelines for the quarantine, let's be honest," Cuomo said...

...Christie said that people facing quarantine orders who live in New York or New Jersey will be able to be quarantined in their homes. Those from outside the area will be sent to some sort of medical facility, he said.

Re: Colorful PRIDE Festival Saturday in Jersey City

I guess what the current thread suggest is that people have different thresholds on nudity and sexuality and how they relate (or not) to exhibitionism and the gay pride parade in general. It should be pointed out that these difference in appreciation can be found in both straight and gay people - the bobo-ization of the latter. Regardless, the gay pride parade is linked to personal freedom so whoever shows up has always been accepted. Some parades are very commercial, some are more familial. That's the way it is. I would doubt that the parade today will be a mardi gras or carnival, but even if it was, that what's personal freedom is all about. Our city is wonderful in that sense for its diversity, cultures, and acceptance.

We loved this pizza but had to stop ordering from here last year because of the issues with delivery. We order pizza usually once a week and our average wait times from them were 2 hours. I have a lot of stomach issues and can not risk waiting that long to eat. The delivery guys were usually apologetic but when we would call there seemed to be indifference about having to wait two hours for food. It was very eye-opening for us.

-JSQ pub
-Sinai
-think there is one of two on Newark

Any others?

Then is shouldn't be called PRIDE parade but rather a MARDI GRAS as the PRIDE parade is supposed to;

Jersey City Pride emphasizes the importance of diversity in the community, making it stronger and more accepting of all individuals and their contributions to society, according to a PRIDE website.

No mention of displaying acts of sexuality or nudity!

Then again, the word Mardi Gras is also a word or event hijacked by the same group of gay exhibitionists !
