Of the man reasons why COVID19 spread so much in Italy is because Italians are very tactile and regularly hug and kiss one another. Also, it's typical for three generations of families to live in the same modest home. While I believe China is awful and underhanded, some of your conspiracy theories are definitely a little over the top. But I have nothing against a good conspiracy theory. Still, what you haven't commented on is how the constituents of Hong Kong of on their own controlled the spread of COVID19 on HongKong.

Little noticed and as well little reported on: In Northern Italy there were 300,000
Chinese--laborers working on the Belt and Road China project. They displaced Italians. When the virus struck guess where the Chinese flocked? Yep--to Italy, and the results were catastrophic as we know.

Here's some background:

This will hopefully involve more pedestrian plazas and more street parking commandeered for restaurant space. How will Yvonne manage to derail this desperately needed economic initiative?

Interesting video on China, when the 2008 housing crash happened and banks laid off people, a neighbor who worked for one of the banks then but was not laid off, said the industry boasted the about rehiring people but they rehired all Chinese nationals. I heard his statement sometime in 2010.

Delivery companies are fighting city commission caps. Does anybody win?

Uber tacked on fees and Postmates organized petitions to push back against delivery fee limits.

Biz CarsonMay 20, 2020

On May 7, Jersey City capped delivery app fees charged to restarurants at 10%, instead of the typical 15% to 30% many such platforms take. The next day, Uber Eats added a $3 delivery fee to local orders for customers and reduced the delivery radius of Jersey City's restaurants.

Now, fewer people are ordering from the restaurants via Uber Eats and instead are shifting to other platforms, the company and the town's mayor both confirmed to Protocol.

Stoke-on-Trent Minton tiles found under Jersey City Hall floor vinyl

Stoke-on-Trent Minton tiles found under Jersey City Hall floor vinyl

The uncovering of "stunning" floor tiles from Stoke-on-Trent at a New Jersey City Hall has prompted great surprise on social media.

The Minton tiles, dating back about 100 years, had been hidden under vinyl at the US city hall since the 1960s.

City mayor Steven Fulop said a team working to renovate the city hall had expected to find "garbage" under the flooring.

He said the city now hoped to restore them properly.

"We expected to find nothing underneath. We know the building was built in the 19th Century around 1850, perhaps a little bit later," Mr Fulop told BBC Radio Stoke.

"We couldn't have been happier to find them, we know those tiles have big roots in the UK."

He said there was a project in the 1960s to modernise the building and it led to the covering up of historical features like the flooring and light fittings.

Thank you Sutherland. Good link.
Here' where that snippet was taken from:

"Founded in 2001, NTD TV (Not to be confused with Australian NTD (TV station) or New Tang Dynasty Television is a New York-based television broadcaster. According to their about page NTD’s mission is “At NTD we believe the integrity of our world hinges on the accurate and truthful spreading of information.” NTD TV is founded by a group of Chinese-American Falun Gong practitioners which supports social conservatism, segregated paradises and anti-communism according to RationalWiki. The Wall Street Journal states that Falun Gong also founded the Epoch Times. However, a SF Gate article suggests that Executives at the Epoch Times, New Tang Dynasty and Sound of Hope deny they represent the movement. The Chinese Government considers the movement a cult and they state “NTD.TV claims to be an independent public media organization serving Chinese people all over the world. But, in essence, it is a mouthpiece of ‘Falun Gong’ in cult and anti-China propaganda.”

NTD TV’s primary focus topics are news, cultural shows, educational programs, sports and entertainment."

..........................

It appears the Chinese government doesn't appreciate their efforts.

Much of what they said wasn't accurate. Though, I think it's fair to say that most people do not trust the Chinese government. Still the US does business with them.

That's just it, I don't want to have to be fucking Sherlock Holmes to understand where the money goes! Special Ed gets thrown around frequently as a reason (along with ESL) you can't compare urban and suburban districts. How convenient then that you can't even find out what we spend on it! This is the stuff that makes my default judgement of all JC governmental arms to be that they're criminal enterprises. They aspire to be like the DoD, declared 'unauditable', just walk away and leave them to make our money vanish.

The user friendly budget is an abbreviated budget format. Special ed spending should be foumd in the unabridged budget. I did not notice if it is made available om their website.


I cited the user friendly budget because it has the spending per student. The numbers in the budget are understated. I recall #s that were in the low $20k per student in JC from a decade ago. There was a lot of political blowback on the Christie adminstration to NOT include fringe benefits like pension costs in the school district reporting (state wide) for per student spending. Evidently the NJ Dept of Ed caved in.

As for Special Ed spending, that is difficult to track. There is a lot of horse trading among school districts and charter schools. One may send a student to another that specializes on that particular learning disability and vice versa.

I do recall quite a lot of variability in the cost of special education services, too. It can cost from $20k to $100k per special needs student depending on their educational needs. That also does not include transporting the student out to an out of district school.

The best way to learn about special ed costs is not the budget, but from the BoE resolutions and meeting agenda/minutes. They are rich with detail if you have the patience to search.

That was my point. With more building came more revenue that was mismanaged.

Yes, I'm sure that years of school over subsidization by the state, forcing Murphy to finally reconfigure the Abbott District formula to force Jersey City to pay its fair share in taxes going forward had nothing to do with the increase. It's development fault.

Maybe if we were still a ghetto like the 1980s, Murphy would have been justified in keeping the previous formula in place.

All this is pre-COVID so tax increases should be getting even more wild down the road.

Increase in funding does not equal a better education. I also shake my head when I see parents cheer for it. They've been bamboozled! I think Camden spends $100,000 per student head and no one would say they have the results to show for it. How other states can provide a quality education for a fraction of that but it remains a challenge in New Jersey, I will never know. I really wish they just consolidated all 600+ schools boards into one for each county. That might help control administrative costs. Until then, it's up up and away in taxes.[/quote]
