Re: Landlord Charge for AC Unit Installation

I would think it's a smart move liability wise, too. Look at that little boy who was killed in Brooklyn over an old/improperly installed concrete window box that fell off and crushed him. The landlord would likely be partly responsible if a faulty air conditioner fell out of a window on either side and injured a tenant or passer-by.

As long as the charge is reasonable, I don't see an issue with that.

Madeline Adinolfe never walked a day in her life, yet she exceeded everyone's expectations and was an inspiration.

The 67-year-old Jersey City native died on April 23, having lived 66-and-a-half years longer than all her doctors expected.

But Adinolfe wasn't the type to tell them "I told you so." Despite contracting polio at the age of 2 months in 1949 -- before the vaccination was developed -- Adinolfe was too busy living her life to waste time being bitter.

'No Section 8': N.J. warns landlords over discriminatory apartment ads

TRENTON -- They looked like any other ad on Craigslist. Great apartment! Free parking. References required. No smoking. No pets.

But authorities say the next item crossed a line.

"No Section 8."

The state Division on Civil Rights on Wednesday sent more than 30 "cease and desist" letters to New Jersey landlords and property managers they say ran afoul of housing discrimination laws by telling those who receive federal rental assistance they need not apply.

Very happy with Progressive bundles - I ended up saving a lot over my old local insurance agent that I had for years and years. Their interface is easy, you can get all of your docs online and I've found their customer service to be terrific. Good luck!

President Trump loses again as federal judge blocks his executive order cutting sanctuary city funds


NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
Tuesday, April 25, 2017, 9:00 PM

A federal judge in San Francisco has blocked a Trump administration order to withhold funding from so-called sanctuary cities — the latest in a series of blows to the President’s hardline immigration agenda.

U.S. District Judge William Orrick on Tuesday issued the preliminary injunction in two lawsuits against an executive order targeting communities that protect immigrants from deportation.

A man was fatally struck by a Hudson-Bergen Light Rail train as he was walking on the tracks in Jersey City this morning, NJ Transit confirmed.

The man, who NJ Transit say was trespassing at the time of the accident, was hit by a northbound train traveling between the Richard Street station and Caven Point facility at around 8:45 a.m., NJ Transit spokeswoman Nancy Snyder said.

Snyder said none of the approximate 300 passengers on board the train were injured in the accident.

New parent, and I gotta admit that it's pretty terrifying watching somebody stick a needle in your perfectly healthy kid every couple months. You take a healthy baby and expose them to a risk of harm, they scream, the wound from the needle bleeds, and a box gets checked off on a list that is dozens long. It triggers your fight or flight response. You want to punch your doctor, grab your kid, and get the hell out of there.

You know why you don't though?

Because my Grandmother told me what it was like to watch a sibling die of whooping cough. Imagine choking, gasping for life, for 3 months.

Herd immunity only works if we all buy in. The argument that it's an individual choice is not correct. The NJ vaccination schedule takes place over several years, and isn't complete until well after children are allowed to enter daycare and pre-schools.
When you choose not to vaccinate your child, you're also choosing to expose MY child to risk, as your non-vaccinated child can be a carrier and can infect my child who hasn't yet received their vaccines.

OP, I feel you. I really do. It's an incredibly tough choice and it is an absolute fact that one in a million children do have their lives 100% ruined by vaccine allergies. A perfectly healthy child can become a vegetable. It's scary. Hopefully in the future there will be better ways of testing for these reactions.
For now though, you have to admit that one in a million is pretty good odds, especially when you look at the percentages of kids that had polio, measles, whooping cough, etc when our fathers and their fathers were younger.

I'd urge you to revisit the facts and really think about what you're doing, not with your child, but with mine. You're exposing my kid to fatal diseases in an urban environment.

$.02

Good luck with your decision. I understand how tough it can be.

QuackWatch.com is a great resource to help debunk some of the bunk pseudo science circulating about health, medical issues and nutrition.

They have a link about vaccines here:

Hello,

The more I research and learn about vaccines, the more I am disturbed by the whole process.

I would like to find a doctor for my baby who understands my concerns and does not push/pressure us to get them for our baby.

Any leads would be appreciated.

Thanks.



Listen, I know you're probably coming from a good place in your heart about this decision. But it's not a good and informed decision. You are truly putting the life of your baby (and anyone who comes into contact with him/her that is immune compromised) at risk. The basic bundle of immunizations given to children in their earliest years are tried and true. If you want to stagger them out, go for it. But don't forgo them completely. You are contributing to the resurgence of horrible, horrible diseases that were thought to be eradicated, but they're making a comeback, hot and heavy, because of lower vaccine rates.

I really urge you to do your research in front of trained professionals at the best children's hospitals - thankfully, they're right across the river. Heck, stay in Jersey and go to JCMC or HUMC. Ask the professionals there your questions, get answers to your concerns. But I bet my life on it that they'll tell you to get that little baby of yours vaccinated on time and on schedule.

So excited to see an uptick in the number of people biking throughout Jersey City, but astounded to see the number of folks who don't wear helmets (or allow their kids not to as well).

As someone who has seen the physical devastation of a loved one in a bike accident sans helmet, please take my word for it - just wear it. It could be a critical component in saving your life or your future neurological function!

Thank you for listening.

JERSEY CITY -- Families in the Jersey City Heights are on edge as they await word on a plan devised by the public-school district that would force many of them to send their young children to new schools in the fall.

The plan is intended to alleviate crowding in the 28,000-student school district, where some schools are so over capacity students are taught in trailers. But parents are worried about longer routes to school and separating their children from friends and beloved teachers. Others are mystified that they won't be able to send their children to the schools closest to their homes.

JERSEY CITY -- An 8-year-old boy was brutally attacked by a dog that bit his ear off while he played in the backyard of an Ocean Avenue home.

Quynton Curry has been recovering from the April 5 attack at St. Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, and now his family is trying to raise money to help with his medical expenses.

Police say a 30-year-old woman tied the pitbull to a gate of her Van Nostrand Avenue at about 7 p.m. on the day of the attack while she brought groceries inside the house. The boy was playing with a group of children in the Ocean Avenue backyard adjacent to the 30-year-old's home, according to a police report.
