Re: Jersey City Residents Decry Offensive Murals Commissioned by the City

again.. this is jersey city. not Philadelphia. is there some law that states that a mural has to be history or related to the city? art is art. i still dont understand your beef with it.

what other censorship in jc are we ignoring? downtown chain stores? thats not censorship. what are they trying to establish or communicate that is being repressed?

so now it comes down to it because YOU dont like it and because YOU dont think its at the level of some other place. See that is censorship

tell me exactly what is offensive about it without quoting some other person who sounds like she is butt hurt about something, maybe she didnt get picked to do a mural.

what exactly is wrong with the art? i think its great adds color and design to usual boring and drab areas.

someone was scared by a tiger mural? really? how is it any different than an ad for a circus or for any other marketing purpose?

one article has people mad because it doesnt include every race in jersey city?

another piece is being attacked because it has a wolf and a teepee? cmon on now we are stretching all this a bit too far. almost like these people are all moderators on Nextdoor site.

so i guess going forward we will have to just use abstract squares and circles because if we dont people will take things personally.

to me this is nothing more than more censorship and stifling of art by people who think that the world needs to revolve around them and only them.

and what is your issue with them Yvonne? this should be good

you posted this on the nextdoor forums. you received a ton of good ideas / solutions but you deleted the post when you were confronted with the similar vibe you are getting here.

yes i agree the dogs should be corralled or contained. neighbor already said no. you have an option to put up a small non temporary fence to the area where they can jump over. you either dont want to pay for the fence or you have other issues with neighbor and really dont care about what you are complaining about.

you can not force someone to do something on their property. if you are the one who is afraid then you put the fence on your property. by the pictures it looks like it is just your deck that meets their deck to where they can jump over. you were directed to buy a couple of fence poles, wood fasteners for fence posts to bolt down to your deck and fencing material. what is so complicated. you and a friend can do this in about 2 hours with no construction skills or pay a handyman to do it for you. a petition is not going to do anything.

also in your first try at the petition you complained about them having parties and loud music. sounds like you are using the dogs as an excuse to get back at them.

i am dealing with the same thing. mine has it being delivered on 3 separate days and none of them were the actual delivery date.

complaining to the Post office is useless. Unions protect them so they can do whatever they want for the most part. Only way is to complain to amazon and keep complaining.

The post office is getting as bad as Lasership, anyone who has had to deal with them know what i am talking about.

this is a so called "public" forum just like anything public, people can say what they want. if you dont like someone or find what they say is offensive then skip over their posts. unless you are outright being targeted or threatened with violence etc etc then its just another form of censorship.

people need to get over themselves. the world is not here to agree with everything you say or stand for.

they are phasing out copper across the board. it is at no cost to you. they will install and upgrade you and you should be able to keep the same services and prices as before. they are not maintaining their copper lines anymore and doing away with them. any provider still dealing with copper is most likely reselling vz services. this is not really about a monopoly just technology moving forward.

things like this will continue no matter the outcome. next it will be some other religion / faith complaining their laws are not being recognized etc etc. just more reasoning to separate religion from everything outside of a person's personal life.

for instance. come up with an average that could work for everyone. say 15 "special" days off a school / work year. no more no less. anything after that comes as a hit to the students / employees records / grades

no favoritism or hand holding, some faiths will come short, some will get free days off. cant please everyone but can try to make it as fair across the board as possible.

the more we cater to every special interest the more issues created.

i blame this on special interests groups and all those idiotic political PAC'S.

I remember reading an article where catholics were mad that non catholics were allowed to take xmas break off and that it wasn't fair because they were not allowed to take days off of other religions and they felt victimized and discriminated against. shenanigans!

and agreed. with things jumping really fast around here. now would be the last time to see some of those prices. good luck.

Re: JCIA Garbage Men Tried to Shake Down "Pint" Owner for Booze

of course they do. look up and down bergen, west side and kennedy. also home owners and renters throw tons of garbage in corner garbage cans as well so its 2 fold. i am not saying commercial places are putting all thier garbage out but if you take a look sometimes you will see things in residential or public garbage that are not sold for individual use (even with the big box stores)

this doesnt even talk about places who dump their cooking grease down the sewers.

every morning as i walk by the Mosque on kennedy they are throwing away tons of construction materials from the companies who are run out of there.

people who live in the apartment buildings to the right of them also come out as they are leaving and dump 1-2 shopping bags of home garbage on the corners so by 8 or 9 am those cans are overflowing, some at least tie the bags closed most dont.

and no i dont have any skin in the game, dont own a business nor have any issues with the JCIA. i am stating what is easily seen.

Re: JP Morgan is looking for a $18M tax break to move jobs to JC
#26

see i actually have not only worked in tech but have run corporate IT departments as well as being a consultant who was brought in to either help replace dysfunctional teams or find the cause of the problem and "fix it".

I made it a point not to hire H1B. and this is my problem with this situation. i will admit you are correct in the point of having a hard time finding qualified people but it stems from the H1B system in itself. i got the same story from most of my candidates as well as my full time team. not seeing a long term investment in US workers they were worried about putting all the money and time into taking courses if they were not going to be able to get work because of outsourcing. most companies i have worked for didn't go the h1b route because of not finding qualified people it was because originally they knew once they locked one of them in they became slaves. their future relied on them keeping that job so they would put in insane amounts of time and deal with ridiculous workloads because they would get threatened with being let go and they would have to ether start the process all over again or move back home.

so why would a home grown employee kill themselves not knowing if there would be a job for them when they received all the training?

but now let me tell you the truth of outsourcing and h1b at least from my experience. i have had family members work for some of these outsourcing groups. let me tell you how they operate and this still is relevant especially in jersey city.

first off. a majority (not all) of h1b in jersey have either fake certifications or someone else took the tests for them. some flat out pay others or even the schools to "pass" the courses. again not all as i have worked with some very smart foreign workers who earned their way up the ladder

while they are in "training" they get put up in apartments and houses sometimes up to 6 to a room in bunk beds and minimal living conditions. i had the opportunity to "get" any certs wanted. would take a couple of months to spread them out and of course would cost more than the actual course but int he end i would be recorded with any cert i wanted without taking the training (no i didnt take any)

they work for pennies as part of their "training and education" till they "pass their certs. once they get certified then a handler interviews them pretty much tells them what they are going to do and how much it will cost them to get hired.

so again its not all of them but it is a huge shady industry. they work from the inside out, i dont blame them for trying to better themselves but at our citizens expense.

companies who outsource should pay even a higher tax

me i got tired of wondering when the bubble would fully burst on the tech sector and made my way out to operations. at least i think i can ride the rest of my career through that till i can hopefully retire

so dont go blaming the loss of talent on workers. is just no one wants to take expensive risks not knowing what the job market is going to do. lets not even get into the crazyness companies are asking from some techs nowdays where they want someone who can do every aspect of tech, doesnt work that way. you will find someone who can do some of everything but not well. then again i guess people will say its because we are lazy.

I do not like Donald Trump, but I can understand the support he is getting by placing either 1st or 2nd in a crowded field when he is talking about illegal immigration and American jobs.


How many hedge funds and technology companies have you worked for, Yvonne? How many candidates for these companies have you interviewed and managed? Oh, right; zero and zero.

Even with H1Bs being considered, there are still numerous positions at the firm I work for that are simply sitting unfilled because we cannot find qualified people... even when we expand the search to include less experienced people that we can invest in (which slows down the work of our engineering team because of having to get people up to speed, so it can't be done lightly). We pay headhunters tens of thousands of dollars per candidate and still can't find enough talent.
