Re: Today's Package Thief Alert

(From Hoboken - but the woman in the video could be operating in JC)

As the holiday gift-giving season ramps up, Police Chief Ken Ferrante says residents should focus on protecting their homes against a rash of package theft throughout the city.

Just last week, the department arrested Luis Medina, 37, of Jersey City and charged him with three counts of burglary, three counts of thefts, one count possession of burglary tools, and bail jumping in connection with alleged package thefts. He was apprehended in the 1200 block of Clinton Street.

Also last week, a Youtube user posted a video that appears to show a woman allegedly taking packages and mail from a Hoboken building.

Additionally, unless you are in a life or death situation, and I know this is not as simple as it seems, look for 24 hour medical clinics for dealing with such treatments. Their rates are significantly lower than the ER, and these types of situations are exactly what they are designed for.

Obviously, a chest pain (potential heart issue) or broken bones, severe wounds, etc., head right to the EF. But pain that you've been living with, fevers, and other stuff that don't feel life threatening, then the clinics are a better choice.


The CVS Minute Clinic in Hoboken is a great resource for non-emergencies. My partner had a severe throat issue this fall - it was in total about $150 for the exam, tests, and meds. The doc even called to check to make sure all was well. (59 Washington St, Hoboken, NJ 07030)

In terms of your bill, you should contact the hospital to negotiate it down, or apply for charity care if you are eligible (low income, etc). In some cases, you can reduce the cost of your services if you are uninsured. Unless you can prove malpractice (meaning you sustained physical damages as a result of their diagnosis), you're not going to get much from them in terms of a reaction.

Stack might support Fulop for Sires’ seat

Although Fulop has already endorsed the 2018 reelection of Menendez for U.S. Senate, those close to the newly re-elected mayor say he may be seeking to move on to another office.

Some close to Fulop said he was stunned when a judge declared a mistrial after Menendez was charged with corruption.

Supporters of Fulop have been riding his coattails in hope of his ascending the political ladder to higher office. Many were crushed when he abandoned his aspirations to become governor, and began to view him as a replacement for Menendez if Menendez was convicted.

The mistrial dashed these followers’ hopes and possibly even Fulop’s.

Although Fulop may well keep control of the City Council – depending on the outcome of the runoff on Dec. 5 – some people are already leaving City Hall.

Fulop said he will not seek a third term. So this already suggests that people associated with his administration may be seeking more long term opportunities elsewhere, while they can.

This also may indicate that Fulop might not even serve out his second term. Some observers believe Fulop will run in the June Democratic primary seeking the House of Representatives seat currently occupied by Rep. Albio Sires.

A primary win in Hudson County almost assures Fulop a victory next November, at which point, he would have to step down as mayor. The city council would select an acting mayor – most likely Council President Rolando Lavarro – who would serve until a special election is held in November 2019.

This would become a free for all, and would likely see a host of mayoral candidates such as Lavarro and Freeholder Bill O’Dea, as well as possible candidates such as council members Daniel Rivera and Joyce Watterman.

At that point, state Sen. Sandra Cunningham might consider fulfilling the legacy of her deceased husband, Glenn Cunningham, and seek to become mayor herself.

Child/Teen Victims of Sex Abuse

An estimated 60% of perpetrators of sexual abuse are known to the child but are not family members, e.g., family friends, babysitters, child care providers, neighbors.

About 30% of perpetrators of child sexual abuse are family members.

Only about 10% of perpetrators of child sexual abuse are strangers to the child.

Not all perpetrators are adults—an estimated 23% of reported cases of child sexual abuse are perpetrated by individuals under the age of 18.

Disclosure of sexual abuse is often delayed; children often avoid telling because they are either afraid of a negative reaction from their parents or of being harmed by the abuser. As such, they often delay disclosure until adulthood.

Males tend not to report their victimization, which may affect statistics. Some men even feel societal pressure to be proud of early sexual activity, regardless of whether it was unwanted.

Studies of adults suggest that factors such as the relationship to the perpetrator, age at first incident of abuse, use of physical force, severity of abuse, and demographic variables, such as gender and ethnicity, impact a child’s willingness to disclose abuse.

Thanks for the stats and creating awareness... I think the other person's comment was was coming from a purely racist perspective, as if child abuse and the criminals engaged in this activity are directly connected to one race or gender.


Thank you. Awareness is key.

And remember, too, it is estimated that only 30% of abuse is ever reported. Imagine the victims that walk among us.

By Ron Zeitlinger
The Jersey Journal

More than six dozen people, including three from Hudson County and eight from Bergen County have been charged with child pornography offenses, state Attorney General Christopher S. Porrino announced today.

The 79 arrests were a result of "Operation Safety Net," a nine-month, multi-agency child protection initiative led by the state Regional Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force, Porrino said.

Arrests were made in all 21 counties in the state and were made with the help of a new van equipped as a mobile cyber forensics lab and a canine trained to sniff out electronic devices to assist in execution of search warrants.

How Much Was the Holland Tunnel Toll when it Opened?
#14
Home away from home
Home away from home


On this day (11/21) in 1927, Time magazine puts the week-old Holland Tunnel on its cover. The tunnel, which runs under the Hudson River between New York City and Jersey City, New Jersey, had opened to traffic the week before, at the stroke of midnight on November 13. (Earlier that day, President Calvin Coolidge had ceremonially opened the tunnel from his yacht on the Potomac by turning the same key that had “opened” the Panama Canal in 1915—Time called it “the golden lever of the Presidential telegraphic instrument”—which rang a giant brass bell at the tunnel’s entrances.) On that first day, 51,694 vehicles traveled through the tunnel.

Time presented all of the tunnel’s vital statistics: its total length (9,250 feet, the “longest of its kind in the world”), length under the river (5,480 feet), hourly and yearly vehicle capacity (3,800 and 15,000,000, respectively), excavation (500,000 cubic yards of soil and rock) and cost ($48.4 million). It also explained the most significant thing about the tunnel: its sophisticated ventilation system.

Until its engineers could figure out a way to keep carbon monoxide out of the air, building an underground road for cars and trucks had been a foolishly dangerous idea. A team of scientists from Yale, the University of Illinois and the Bureau of Mines discovered that only four parts of the poisonous gas per 10,000 of air could be lethal, and they recommended that the tunnel’s builders design a two-duct ventilating system to ensure that people in the tunnel would always have fresh air to breathe. As Time explained: “To prevent disaster absolutely Chief Engineer Holland installed 84 ventilating fans in four 10 story buildings, two on each side of the Hudson. Part of them blow fresh air into the tunnel floor through vents, others suck vitiated air through ducts in the tunnel ceiling. Thus they change the tunnel air completely 42 times an hour and but 56 of the fans are needed to do so.” (The other 28 were reserved for emergency use.) It took—and still takes—about 90 seconds to replace all of the air in the tunnel with fresh air.

On the day the tunnel opened, the toll was 50 cents per car in both directions. In 1970, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey switched to one-way tolls. By 2009, the one-way toll was $8.

These New Yorkers Bought a House (in JC) & Went Homeless to Pay for It
#15
Home away from home
Home away from home


(Don't shoot the messenger - that was the actual Post headline.)

By Christian Gollayan November 19, 2017 | 11:26am

Jennifer Liepen and Sandy Patch own a $345,000 house in Jersey City that they’ve never lived in — which might not be so unusual, except for the fact that they don’t have any other home.

“We’re nomads,” Patch told The Post. “[We’re] moving to where resources are at any given time.”

Instead, the married couple moves into a different NYC apartment every week or so. As pet sitters, Liepin, 32, and Patch, 33, crash for free at various clients’ apartments and care for cats and dogs while their owners are out of town.

The pair allow themselves a combined weekly budget of just $100. Patch said they have saved “close to $50,000” apartment-hopping for the past two years.

They Eat Out of Garbage Cans, Too.

Asbestos Abatement - Anyone Experience This?
#18
Home away from home
Home away from home


I may have some asbestos issues in my condo - the material used to adhere the parquet floors may have asbestos in it (mastic). We recently had a very bad leak from an apartment above us that impacted our floors. The management company let us know that the floor has to be torn up and the asbestos abated as part of the repair. Fun!

I just had an environmental testing company in last week to do tests to see if there's asbestos.

If anyone has dealt with this before, kindly let me know. Looking for recommendations for asbestos abatement contractors, too.

Homeless or Cold? Hudson Co. Opens Warming Shelter
#19
Home away from home
Home away from home


The Hudson County Warming Center was scheduled to open on Friday, Nov. 10 to accommodate the homeless in anticipation of severe cold weather this weekend. The Urban Renewal Corporation (URC) will conduct pickup(s) at the Hoboken Shelter at 300 Bloomfield St. in Hoboken at 8 p.m. (line formation at 7:45 p.m.) and in Jersey City at the taxi stand on Sip and Bergen avenues 10 p.m. (line formation begins at 9:45 p.m.) to take guests to the Warming Center. They will make as many trips as needed.

The Hudson County Warming Center will not remain open continuously from Friday evening through Sunday morning. Instead, URC will transport guests back to Jersey City and Hoboken after 9 a.m. Saturday and Sunday mornings. Their Outreach Team is prepared to engage and register individuals for any one of the existing shelters and the Warming Center.

All shelters in Hudson County will remain open to provide respite for guests. Local law enforcement agencies have been contacted to provide transport to individuals to the County Warming Center in Kearny and local shelters as needed.

If you encounter a homeless individual during this time period, local shelters should be consulted first. The contact information for the Kearny Warming Center is as follows: Phone: (973) 344-6852. The address is 53 S. Hackensack Ave. in Kearny.

The county also provided a hotline, but when the Reporter tried it, it rang without answers. Various officials were trying on Friday to determine who is responsible for handling the hotline, and there was no answer by press time. We will publish the correct number next week, but in the meantime, use the number above.

“I urge all in need of shelter and anyone concerned about their welfare to please use the available warming center service or call the homeless hotline to assist with shelter placement,” said Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise. “We greatly appreciate the cooperation of all our coalition partners in this effort.”

There was a recent thread about a new owner for a rent controlled building who was harassing tenants. Is your building rent controlled? Also - is the laundry amenity in your lease? That's going to be important.

Keep careful notes of everything that's going on - you'll need these if you proceed to court.

NYPD officers assisting Jersey City cops in a search that led to Brooklyn found themselves in a drug den with nearly $1 million in cash and 100 pounds of marijuana.

The finest were helping the New Jersey police track down a man wanted on arson and terroristic threat charges, authorities said. The joint forces went, with a search warrant, cops said, to the Crown Heights apartment on Montgomery St. near Schenectady Ave. at about 10 p.m. Friday.

They arrested Humphrey Olivio, 36, Yazmin Olivio, 30, and Jose Pichardo, 24, on charges including criminal possession of marijuana and criminal sale of marijuana.

JERSEY CITY -- Eleven people, including a city firefighter, are being treated for carbon monoxide exposure at an apartment building on the city's West Side, officials said.

Three people who were exposed to the carbon monoxide are listed in critical condition, city spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill said.

The incident happened at 168 Harrison Ave., a 16-family residential building between Kennedy Boulevard and Bergen Avenue, at approximately 11:30 a.m.

Officials say a malfunctioning boiler may have been what caused the exposure.

The city's fire department and Office of Emergency Management are on scene with PSE&G and the building's management.
