Re: Jury duty questions
#1

Home away from home


I did my 2 days in Feb. The juror management staff do a great job of communicating what to expect and keeping you updated. They acknowledge jury duty is not exactly loved by the public and show their appreciation. You can also leave for short breaks as long as you sign out.

I did get called near the end of the first day for a case. You then go into a courtroom and the rules are more severe: no cell phone, food, drinks, talking etc. I had gone from essentially working on my laptop to not being able to communicate with anyone (which sucked because I was right in the middle of buying/selling a house). You can ask to be excused and go into the hallway.

By the middle of the second day they had their jury and we were released. It was a smooth and, actually, interesting process.

Running to Hoboken: Snow Melting/Shoveling Status
#3

Home away from home


I need to start training for the Newport 10K. I usually run down 6th, cut over by Battelo, go around the lighthouse and then head into Hoboken along the water. Can anyone give me a sense of whether those areas/sidewalks are pretty clear? Seems like a lot of melting had happened.

Thanks!

I literally just kicked off a project at work to do research to explore the "branch of the future" and what that means for customers/employees.

I know I personally go into a Bank of America branch only when I absolutely need to: money order, large withdrawal...maybe 1-2X a year. They have kiosks now that are starting to offer many of these services.

I welcome everyone's thoughts to add to my data :)

Thanks for this reminder! I went to Key Food today and bought a ton of canned and packaged items. I then brought my daughter with me to drop it off at St. Lucy's. They were very kind and appreciative and we put it directly into the kitchen where 2 lovely volunteers happily took it. I'm sure it'll be put to good use.

Many people are fearful (of being deported, families splitting up, losing healthcare) because they take his language and campaign promises literally. Then, because of the shock of his win, everyone had to quickly take him seriously. I think these feelings may temper as everyone begins to see that the "showman" Trump will be more even-keeled as he approaches the office (i.e., not completely repealing Obamacare).


If you haven't already, you should read this:

I’m a Muslim, a woman and an immigrant. I voted for Trump.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/gl ... igrant-i-voted-for-trump/



Thanks for sharing. It's been interesting to hear why so many people felt they needed to be secretive about voting for Trump and why the polls weren't representative of reality and this silent group. PBS Newshour had some great segments tonight from diverse voters for both candidates and from high schoolers. Mark Sheilds, Democrat, and David Brooks, Republican, reflected on the results and they both agreed that the worst thing anyone can do is assume that the extreme versions of either side represent the majority, because they don't.

That's a good point. Remind me, what did "progressives" say about that issue? How did it turn out? Are they making the same arguments now?



Left didn't like it, and right won't like this. Everyone is a hypocrite.

All I'm saying is that he needs to come out against this if he meant what he said about unifying the country.


Please provide proof of one act of physical harm that a Trump supporter inflicted on an innocent person.

Not social media accounts where there is no evidence apart from a self-serving post (and usually the "victim" didn't even go to the police). And not hateful words, because as bad as those are, they don't compare to beatings, two examples of which I posted.

In the absence of actual proof, there is nothing to denounce, apart from general statements that we must all come together.

Alternatively, I'd be fine if he denounced the wrongdoers on both sides (because there probably are some Trump supporters that did say hateful words to people). But I resent the implication posted here that minorities are being victimized by Trump supporters when there isn't actual evidence of that, and when we do have proof and video, the evidence tends to show the reverse.

Doesn't it seem odd to you that most Trump supporters live in rural areas yet these "hate crimes" allegedly are occurring in very liberal urban cities?



You're right. I don't have that video "proof." Perhaps I'm just as disgusted by words and attitudes as I am by actions....

Apparently Trump asked Obama and Clinton to speak out against the protests. I want to see Trump speak out against these terrible hate crimes happening, especially in schools/colleges. He said he would try to unify. He should use that power now.

The wonderful oratory skill we have to look forward to:

"Look, having nuclear—my uncle was a great professor and scientist and engineer, Dr. John Trump at MIT; good genes, very good genes, OK, very smart, the Wharton School of Finance, very good, very smart—you know, if you’re a conservative Republican, if I were a liberal, if, like, OK, if I ran as a liberal Democrat, they would say I'm one of the smartest people anywhere in the world—it’s true!—but when you're a conservative Republican they try—oh, do they do a number—that’s why I always start off: Went to Wharton, was a good student, went there, went there, did this, built a fortune—you know I have to give my like credentials all the time, because we’re a little disadvantaged—but you look at the nuclear deal, the thing that really bothers me—it would have been so easy, and it’s not as important as these lives are (nuclear is powerful; my uncle explained that to me many, many years ago, the power and that was 35 years ago; he would explain the power of what's going to happen and he was right—who would have thought?), but when you look at what's going on with the four prisoners—now it used to be three, now it’s four—but when it was three and even now, I would have said it's all in the messenger; fellas, and it is fellas because, you know, they don't, they haven’t figured that the women are smarter right now than the men, so, you know, it’s gonna take them about another 150 years—but the Persians are great negotiators, the Iranians are great negotiators, so, and they, they just killed, they just killed us."

Lots of people called Michelle horrible things. So let's not be so quick to say all Americans respected her.

Melania has said her platform will be fighting cyber bullying, unless that has changed already.



She is an inarticulate moron who during one televised speech said "Ya Know" about 25 times after ending each sentence.

I'm sure the English department @ Princeton quickly tightened up their affirmative action quotas after hearing that.





Damn, that's some hateful, racist shit right there...

My husband and I wanted to see UR succeed. The quality/caliber of their food and service was great... on good days. And that was our issue: inconsistency.

A dinner there one week involved a hair in the appetizer and delayed cocktails... A dinner there months later was impeccable...

A lunch there one week could involve several items missing from the menu and an unseasoned ramen... A lunch there mos later was wonderful (the cod fish and thai beef ramen were out of this world)....



After several rounds of this inconsistency, we would just start forgetting it was there. One of us would remember but then go, "meh, but remember last time...." I felt they had the right ingredients, no pun intended, for success, but were missing the business/management side... that's the story for many places in JC.

Yes, I know they also were the only ones who predicted consistently some storm/hurricane last year NOT hitting us when all other models were aligned at devastation for us. Joe stuck by his prediction and he/model were right. I should subscribe, thanks for sharing.
