Large residential projects
#1
Home away from home
Home away from home


While travelling down to Monmouth County yesterday I noticed three large scale residential projects underway on routes 35 & 36. Towns in Middlesex County are also in the process of developing a number of new living areas. Also, clusters have been springing up near rail stops--particularly large ones in Rahway and Avenel. Anyone like to venture an assessment of what these growth spurts are about?

I've got to go along with JC Guys for the most part.
Journalists should report the news. There are so many other career choices for those who want to bring the light of goodness into the world. My particular beef with newsapers pressing people to see things their way lies with the editorial page, where the editor gets to proffer his particular visions and desires to the reading public.
What gives them the right to do that, especially in a time when newspapers have seen fit to excise reader's opinions from the pages? Letter writers and comment contributors, in a fair world, should be given the same opportunity as the editor and the journalists. Who made those in the newspaper trade the arbiters of truth or deceit?

As Joe Friday used to intone: "Just the facts Ma'am, just the facts."

We can take it from there thank you.

This is an amazing admission by a a senior executive at the Ledger (nj.com). Desperation is clearly setting in as circulation is in a serious decline.

Take a few minutes to read it:

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:

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.

I think the article points to the beginnings of a tsunami which will engulf the whole economic climate.
Today I watched an interview with the new CEO of IBM. He was thrilled with the fact that ninety-five percent of IBM's workforce were no longer, figuratively speaking, at their desks.
The global mishandling of this crisis--the shutting down of the world's business economy -- will allow a view and a way into a world that was probably years away, but is now on our doorstep: Buildings housing a workforce are now so old school. Can the current workforce be viewed as necessary? What right thinking corporate head is not going to look to cut costs by not building brick and mortar housing or renegotiating lease arrangements?
Business are being run in a totally new way. The Geek Squad is lighting the way to major changes. When commuting ceases by a large margin the auto and energy industries will be impacted. Business reliant on centers of economic activity (food, entertainments,clothing etc.) will be hurt and so on and so on.
What will the inevitable end turn out to be?--a socialist state.
Bernie--they stuck it to you again. it must hurt a little more this time if you can read the tea leaves.

I wonder, if when the response to this bio menace is examined under a more reasoned framework if it'll be determined that the subway system in NYC and NJ should have been shut down. I can't help but think that in those first weeks when the seriousness of the virus was recognized and measures were adapted, why weren't the rails shut down? Passengers travelled through all of the boroughs and into various New Jersey locations bringing the bug home to families. friends and neighbors.
Conclusions will have to be drawn in the light of cold reason.

It appears that the news will be shifting in the other direction after last night.
It's midway through the fifteen day allotment dealing with the crisis. The new hype will now be "let's get back to work. You'll see testimonials from people who've recovered etc., etc. America lives on a two week news cycle. The good thing is that all of the protection stuff that is being made will be stockpiled for the next chapter.

This, unfortunately won't stop:

https://www.theguardian.com/environmen ... ponsible-for-covid-19-aoe


I was talking to my friend last night who just finished her undergrad in anthropology and international politics. In an exercise of sharing conspiracy theories of the Corona virus, she suggested the Gaia hypothesis - are you familiar with it? It was developed in the 1970s by a chemist and microbiologist. In short, it suggests that organisms co-evolve with their environment and Earth may be considered a single organism. So humans create the man-made stuff (cars, factories, planes, and so on) which directly impact the chemicals and gases in our atmosphere which directly effect our water, light, radiation, temperature, soil. Then those impact our natural world (plants, animals) over time.


That being considered, viruses like Ebola or Sars or most recently, COVID-19, can be considered Mother Nature fighting back. Confining us to our homes, shifting the way we work over night, shutting down harmful manufacturing plants, lifting smog from entire cities, bringing tourism to a grinding halt, clearing up traffic jams on every continent....all so Mother Nature can take a breath of fresh, clean air and show the world how harmful our daily, normal activities are to her health. As drastic as the measures now being taken by governments all over the world may seem, she knew a deadly virus would be the only way to get the kind of attention needed to address human ignorance. The deaths caused by COVID-19 or any other virus actually, is the Earth's immune system trying to clean itself. To add a layer of satire, Mother Nature transmits the virus through the animals we are killing to feed people. Overpopulation is the biggest threat to our world after all. For example, sustaining a food supply for billions of people poses an enormous threat to the atmosphere and ultimately, the livability of the Earth.

I taught high school for a little over ten years and retired at sixty-two.

Though there are many wonderful people in the craft it has to be said that longevity, not merit brings high salaries. The longer one stays in the job, the more one makes; so why leave?
Young people entering the profession are faced with lower salaries and longer times to get their steps to higher salaries. So, as a rule of thumb, the best and the brightest pack it in while the long term people stay in place.
As a result the system becomes stale and less productive.

"teach LGBT history" - what do you think this is going to consist of? It's going to be one page in a 400 page text book and a ten minute discussion about civil rights for all and the Stonewall Riots. Maybe one question on a test or quiz. None of your kids will "turn" gay if they weren't already.


I disagree with your assessment.
As with all of the social and cultural curricula in the schools and colleges, the focus will grow and grow until it becomes an expensive part of education It's the way of society today.

I'm a little concerned that marginal "historical" figures will become subjects to be studied as the curriculum grows. I may be wrong, but let's see.
