Re: CDC confirms first Ebola case diagnosed in US

I was thinking today, that I don't believe Ebola will get a real foothold in the US, if for no other reason than we're really squeamish about holding and caring for loved ones spewing blood and stuff from all their orifices, unlike the um, "savages". But this is a dress rehearsal for something even worse, and it's good to show where the system is weak. I think the doc should have laid low.

Speaking of the "S" word, here's my favorite story. Subway, mid 80's. Bad old NYC, car is covered in graffiti. Howling through the car comes a wolf pack of, um, "urban youth", the kind that Bernie Getz let have it. After they're gone the gent across the car from me, a dead ringer for John Houseman in a 3 piece suit, looks up at me from his Journal, says: "savages", and returns to his stock news.

That's a fair point, I hadn't thought of that. I'd like to think I would not be like that if I was from there, but I certainly couldn't say that for sure.

Then why are you endorsing that slate? I recall Ellen Simon, before she was elected, raising the issue of lead in drinking water at some schools.

Funny, you didn't ask him about that. Did you miss that BOE meeting? I thought you attended meetings.


Yvonne supports the Teacher's Union candidates because they are fiercely anti-Fulop, and as the adage goes "the enemy of my enemy is my friend." As insignificant and psychotic these looney tunes are, they hate Fulop more than cancer and will back anyone who is also against him.


You are not correct, I support Children First Team, the Teacher's Union Team does not have all of the candidates of Children First Team. Know the facts before you start hurling insults.

Problems With Rustique Delivery

Anyone else have issues with their delivery? I ordered a salad at 8:30pm. Had to cancel the order at 10:30 because the food never showed up. Called the restaurant several times to find out what was up. No explanation. Just the typical "on it's way".

Because they are less sexually repressed than the average hetereosexual. A distaste for nudity just shows how one was brought up to think that some parts of nudity and sexuality are shameful.


Plus they still are men and men enjoy "visual stimulation" more than women. You rarely see Lesbians beings as exhibitionist as the gay men. Plus what was said above. Also have you ever watched Monday Night Football?

Re: Berry Lane Park

My question and problem with the proposed layout - there's too much active space. The sports fields will become like Enos Jones Park - and the public will be padlocked out of the space - - space they pay for with their taxes. In Enos Jones, 80% or so of the park (the baseball fields) - is only used a few hours a week. What use is the green space - if few can use it and most are padlocked out?

You could ask the same question about cheerleaders, beauty contests, the music industry, movies, Mardi Gras - the list is endless. Or perhaps you'd prefer all gays and women to wear burkas head-to-toe?

The simplest answer to your question - is because they can.

We simply don't know enough about Ebola to be believing some of the sweeping statements made by the CDC.

How fast the virus is mutating? Could it become airbone in humans - like it the Ebola Reston strain did in monkeys? Or what happens when someone catches a respiratory infection alongside Ebola?

Past statistics don't predict future outcomes - when so little is really known about the virus.


See http://www.cnn.com/2014/09/12/health/ebola-airborne/

Today, the Ebola virus spreads only through direct contact with bodily fluids, such as blood and vomit. But some of the nation's top infectious disease experts worry that this deadly virus could mutate and be transmitted just by a cough or a sneeze.

"It's the single greatest concern I've ever had in my 40-year public health career," said Dr. Michael Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota. "I can't imagine anything in my career -- and this includes HIV -- that would be more devastating to the world than a respiratory transmissible Ebola virus."

The World Health Organization says its scientists are unaware of any virus that has dramatically changed its mode of transmission.

"For example, the H5N1 avian influenza virus... has probably circulated through many billions of birds for at least two decades. Its mode of transmission remains basically unchanged. Speculation that Ebola virus disease might mutate into a form that could easily spread among humans through the air is just that: speculation, unsubstantiated by any evidence."

Osterholm and other experts couldn't think of another virus that has made the transition from non-airborne to airborne in humans. They say the chances are relatively small that Ebola will make that jump. But as the virus spreads, they warned, the likelihood increases.

Every time a new person gets Ebola, the virus gets another chance to mutate and develop new capabilities. Osterholm calls it "genetic roulette."

As of October 1, there have been more than 7,100 cases of Ebola, with 3,330 deaths, according to the World Health Organization, which has said the virus is spreading at a much faster rate than it was earlier in the outbreak.

Ebola is an RNA virus, which means every time it copies itself, it makes one or two mutations. Many of those mutations mean nothing, but some of them might be able to change the way the virus behaves inside the human body.
"Imagine every time you copy an essay, you change a word or two. Eventually, it's going to change the meaning of the essay," said Dr. C.J. Peters, one of the heroes featured in "The Hot Zone."

That book chronicles the 1989 outbreak of Ebola Reston, which was transmitted among monkeys by breathing. In 2012, Canadian researchers found that Ebola Zaire, which is involved in the current outbreak, was passed from pigs to monkeys in the air.

Dr. James Le Duc, the director of the Galveston National Laboratory at the University of Texas, said the problem is that no one is keeping track of the mutations happening across West Africa, so no one really knows what the virus has become.

One group of researchers looked at how Ebola changed over a short period of time in just one area in Sierra Leone early on in the outbreak, before it was spreading as fast as it is now. They found more than 300 genetic changes in the virus.

"It's frightening to look at how much this virus mutated within just three weeks," said Dr. Pardis Sabeti, an associate professor at Harvard and senior associate member of the Broad Institute, where the research was done.
Even without becoming airborne, the virus has overwhelmed efforts to stop it.

Osterholm commended groups like Doctors Without Borders but said uncoordinated efforts by individual organizations are no match for Ebola spreading swiftly through urban areas.

"This is largely dysfunctional. Nobody's in command, and nobody's in charge," he said. "It's like not having air traffic control at an airport. The planes would just crash into each other."

Re: Area between Tunnel and Hoboken

I do not understand why any of these buildings like 700 Grove or Zephyr have basements.
These areas are located at lower elevations than areas right on the Hudson by 3-5 feet (look at Google Earth). As I recall with Sandy, at high tide, areas right on the Hudson became submerged by 4-5 feet or more. Any breach right on the river for a period of time does not hold well for these buildings.

I sure hope my auto insurance premiums are not subsidizing anyone that is parking in their below grade parking lots....

Also, people forget history in these transient communities quite quickly (which might explain why another poster was beaming about 10% price increases). A storm like Sandy may happen once every few decades with a few super Nor'easters in between.
As they say, there is a reason why many of the nicer homes in New Orleans survived Katrina, that's because in the old days, people built responsibly on higher ground....

Do you know whether the developers’ commitment to moving forward with the project was contingent on receiving a tax abatement? I didn’t read that anywhere. Sure they applied for one—it would have been foolish not to—but did they absolutely need it?



However the process works, I can tell you that the city is not giving away abatements where it knows it can secure equivalent development projects on the same land for the ordinary amount of tax revenue.

But as with all negotiations, it's hard to know what Mariott's "bottom line" was. I'm sure they began negotiations by asking for even more of a discount and the city began with less of a discount.


How can you "tell" this to us? You act like it's Fulop negotiating directly with the faceless Marriott.

The article at the start of this thread would seem to shed some light on what's really going on here:

"The hotel is a joint venture of four developers, some with political ties: former Hudson County Democratic bigwig Joe Panepinto; Ironstate Holdings, owned by David Barry and Michael Barry; FJG Columbus, controlled by former U.S. Rep. Frank Guarini; and KimmelLipson."

Citizens then started complaining about police officers showing up the next day to take a report.


WHAT?? The hotel could staff a highly trained on-site security person around the clock for a fraction of the money they will pay in taxes over the 20 year abatement period. No way the city provides business services equal to the taxes local businesses pay, whether they have abatements or not.

I think I've finally mastered unwrapping them and truly believe the wrapper is genius at keeping the textures right.
