Re: Griffith between Central and Palisades

Just can't stay away


I wouldn't worry too much. There are definitely some characters on Griffith and around the park, but they are basically harmless. I say basically because some may get chatty or loud occasionally, be a little drunk, litter, or ask for fifty cents, but I can't say I've ever actually been threatened by any of the usual faces. I've also seen some catcalling, but no more than anywhere else (not that that makes it right).

Definitely be careful using the crosswalks at Griffith and New York Ave though. Cars are not fans of the stop signs there.

Fortunately, 20 is a pretty easy number to work with. Are you really worried your house is going to be reassessed for a million more dollars?

Ballot Question No 2 asks constituents to commit to paying $20 for every $100,000 their home is ASSESSED at for GREEN & OPEN SPACE. VOTE NO.

For one this is IN ADVANCE of the reval, so you don't know what your home is worth.

Two, this comes AFTER we let all of these developers build big huge tall buildings.

Three, this comes AFTER years of giving developers ABATEMENTS.

So why should the constituency pay more NOW??? Let the developers pay it.

Always blame third party, right? Certainly not Al Gore's fault for failing as a candidate to inspire more votes. Or any of the millions of registered voters who didn't actually vote. They sure couldn't have changed the outcome!

The official Florida tally gave Bush the win by 537 votes (48.847 percent to 48.838 percent), while Nader racked up 97,488 votes. The national exit poll asked respondents how they would vote in a two-person race between Bush and Gore. Political scientist Gerald Pomper summed up the results in a 2001 Political Science Quarterly overview: “approximately half (47 percent) of the Nader voters said they would choose Gore in a two-man race, a fifth (21 percent) would choose Bush, and a third (32 percent) would not vote. Applying these figures to the actual vote, Gore would have achieved a net gain of 26,000 votes in Florida, far more than needed to carry the state easily.”

I noticed the interpretative statement on the ballot literally says "The annual yearly rate would be $0.02 per $100 of assessed valuation, meaning that a property assessed at $100,000 would pay no more than $20 per year...". It must have been reading this thread.

It must be said though that is a terribly designed, signposted and lane marked piece of road.

Most drivers would find it difficult to drive fully in accordance with the markings and signs without prior local knowledge of what is coming.

If you are driving straight across from Bright street north, you first find yourself in a right turn only lane with little to no warning, then, assuming you managed to stay in the correct lane for that part, the next block you find yourself in the wrong lane again as suddenly a left turn only lane looms with short warning.

During busy times you have cars beside you so it is difficult to make these two lane changes in order to legally maintain your northbound progress.

Robin.


Any idea how the intersections at Monmouth and Newark/2nd are supposed to work? As you approach 2nd going North on Monmouth, there's a left-only lane. Then there's 20 feet of another left-only lane approaching Newark Ave. I treat both left-only's as a left for Newark, because how many people are really turning on 2nd? And how ridiculous would it be for everyone taking a left on Newark to sit in a long line of people going straight only to get 20 feet of dedicated turning?

Considering that Hoboken is not part of the system, it's less likely that people would be taking those steeper ways in/out of the Heights (Mountain Rd., Paterson Plank, Ravine) and instead make their way over to Newark Ave. Those nice bike lanes in Hoboken that run near the light rail aren't even highlighted on the map.

I've looked at the practice tests. The Math looks fine. The Langauge Arts looks somewhat formulaic. But it's always been easier to test math than language arts.

I won't say that the tests are perfect, or that everything around Common Core has been flawlessly implemented. But I like the way math is being taught in the early grades now. Teaching English is relatively straightforward.

The homework has a lot of worksheets from Pearson. Occasionally there is a confusing question, but the subject matter is relevant and age appropriate.

Maybe in a couple of years when they have to take the test it becomes a lot more test prep directed but I don't see that so far.

Most of the complaints seem to be from people with an ax to grind.


I find it fascinating that the rhetoric from anti-parcc testing suggests that it intentionally sets children up to fail. Then you watch the videos of those anti-parcc teachers and parents who have taken the practice tests and it's like a contest to see who can make it sound more impossible. When you have educators planting the suggestion that parcc tests are a difficult waste of time to children, that's more defeatist than the test ever could be.

After witnessing several teachers and parents do this in person, I decided to try a variety of the practice tests. I did pretty well considering I haven't been in school or used a graphing calculator since the 90s. While I agree that the school year should not be monopolized by test prep, and it's a no-brainer that any test should be age-appropriate, I feel that if the test is actually covering material that is already part of the standard curriculum, then it's not an out-of-control monster that feeds on children.

Yup this is what it's all about. Nothing about a career fraud who happens to be a radical racist with a sham charity Fulop, Theiroff, and Park use as a slush fund. Who paid for the Coronation by the way? That extravagant display of arrogance must have been very expensive.


I definitely don't see anyone going on for pages and pages about the homophobic slur he used. No, the obsession is the racial component because people just love to run with "reverse racism."

Anyway, what exactly is this Hilter that while people have in them? Is it some kind of slow muscle twitch fiber?

But is the ability to sell a mobile meal an unfair advantage, or just a competitive advantage? Is your ability to deliver pizza an unfair advantage over another pizzeria that can't afford a delivery vehicle? Or should all brick and mortar establishments be forced to only operate from within the boundaries of their brick and mortar? Is it an unfair advantage to the food trucks that you can deliver a pizza to an apartment that is right next where they are parked?

And how does Torico's manage to stay in business while ice cream trucks roam the streets without complaining to the local government?

EXACTLY. As much as people love to rag on Chuck E. Cheese and chain restaurants, they continue to be in existence because they address an overriding concern of many people and parents: they make things easy, almost effortless, and people are all too willing to go along with that.

I really wish people would see the value in a home cooked meal and that time spent/shared with the rest of the family. Does it take time? Of course. But, guaranteed those times are the ones most remembered and treasured by the kids as they grow older and create their own families.


Do you cook 100% of your meals at home?


Actually, I pretty much do. If you must know, breakfast and dinner are fresh cooked meals every day Su - Th. Fridays and Saturdays are usually days to go out for dinner, sometimes lunch as well, depending on the weekend's activities.

But, I do wonder: what was your point?


Going out to lunch or dinner on weekends is pretty lazy. You should be ashamed at what you're doing to your family. If you just spent a little time preparing a bag lunch with your family before going out to buy vegetables you didn't grow or clothes you didn't make, you'd be amazed at how that simple meal will be treasured for generations to come.

WFT?
Are you serious?
That is the most idiotic statement I've read on here in a long time.
If someone is willing to take the initiative and be proactive in the removal or painting over of the graffiti, why would you be against it?

Waiting for the Incinerator Authority to paint over anything could take weeks.
I live it the Heights and paint over ever bit of tagging I can.
I do everything in my power to make my neighborhood nicer to live in and that means painting over this constant tagging.
It's people like you who complain and do nothing that are the scourge of our city.
Have them arrested? What an idiot.
Try to stop me from not painting over it and you'll get punched in the face.

Punch me for protecting my property and you'll get painted in the WFT.
