Another discussion -- https://www.rand.org/blog/2015/03/what ... ut-police-visibility.html


What I found interesting there is they were comparing it to foot patrols. You never see JC cops out of their cars unless they're responding to a call or they're moonlighting on a construction site. They also exaggerated quite a lot saying "Police on horseback are 12 feet tall". More like 8 ft, does little for the article's credibility.

Do the cops still drive through HP on the footpaths? Since my kids are no longer small I'm not there much, but when I would see that, it was iconic of everything wrong with the way they police. I'm not against horses per se, they are quite romantic. I just find the proposal a distraction not a solution.

I don't think its a stretch to assume that a mounted cop will not be responding to normal calls or do normal neighborhood patrolling, assuming JC cops actually patrol at all. Wasn't the rationale for ending the bike squad that more cops were needed to respond to calls?

If you look closely, there's a step just above the rear wheel on the left. You do need a bit of momentum though.

Seriously, who in their right mind thinks a police force that is unable to do even minimal traffic enforcement should be messing with horses? By my rough arithmetic a horse probably costs yearly the same as a cop, plus a cop is being taken off normal street duty to be on a horse. So horse cop costs us 2 street cops.

According to studies in the UK, mounted police interact with the community far more than officers in cars and are far more mobile than officers on foot.


If only there were a vehicle that was far less expensive to purchase, maintain and transport than a horse, yet brought officers closer to the community and gave them mobility through parks and traffic. Say, something with 2 wheels that actually also kept the officers physically fit.

Why in Gods name? About the only advantage a horse has over a bike is being able to see over crowds in a riot and to intimidate people. Get the cops out of their cars, on the streets, and giving traffic tickets!

Expensive to run. You'd be better off running gas to the location and putting in either a vented or ventless fireplace, then it would simply take the place of your other presumably gas heating. Only problem would be if the thermostat is in that space, the rest of the zone would get cold since the system would not call for heat.

Re: Jersey City hospital to pay 'voluntary' taxes after city challenged tax-exempt status

Quote:
JCMC, now part of the RWJBarnabas Health system, owns four properties in Jersey City, tax records show. Its main campus, located on Grand Street in an upscale area of the city, is assessed at $12.6 million. If the hospital were not tax-exempt, it would pay $800,000 in property taxes this year, city attorney Nick Strasser told the City Council on Oct. 9.


How can the JCMC campus on Grand be worth only $12M? That's the same as 6 rowhouses, and it's freaking acres with a big building on it! But the $800k makes no sense as tax on $12M, so maybe that's the old assessment not the post reval. Even so $50M still seems low, according to this article they spent well over $100M on it.

Again you show yourself to be financially illiterate. Anyone who doesn't refinance high rate debt during low rates is a moron and should be fired.

Hi all - anyone has feedback on High Tech High School in Secaucus? I heard that it's very competitive to get in. Would be interested in any feedback you may have.

Also, how does it compare to McNair? I know McNair is very academic focused and competitive as well.

TIA.


I think you need to sit down with current or former students to really get a sense. Both are excellent schools, but beyond the obvious arts orientation of HT there are significant differences in how they're set up. Ex: there are no majors in McNair, but it's a significant part of how HT works. No sports at HT, poor arts and humanities clubs at McNair. See if you can get a copy of the McNair Student Handbook, it can tell you a lot.

Also, don't underestimate the travel time hit, that's a lot out of a kid's day, especially if they want an afterschool activity. Lastly, do look into County Prep. It's underrated but coming up fast in our HS ecosystem. One of my son's former LCCS classmates who didn't get into McNair or HT went there and got into Carnegie-Mellon as a physics major!

Re: Menendez ahead by a wee bit!
#16
Home away from home

Menendez isn't specifically about Cavanaugh, it's about control of the senate in an era where the filibuster is dead, and GOP senators fall in line with the party or else are treated severely by the leadership. Democrats are not nearly so disciplined or controlling, the one thing that hasn't changed in many decades is that leading Dems is like herding cats.

So, Menendez may possibly be a corrupt machine hack, but he's OUR corrupt machine hack, and will vote for my "NJ Libtard" interests while he lines his pockets. A variety of what Tammany's George Washington Plunkitt called "honest graft", pursuing the public interest and one's personal interests at the same time.

But moderate GOP senators rarely have the stones to vote moderately and represent ALL of their state rather than the party line of the moment. That's why moderate GOP governors aren't nearly as bad as senators. In my lifetime I've seen many moderate R's turn hard right in their runs for POTUS, from Bush41 to Christie to Trump himself.

No matter how bad Menendez is, only a moron, Democrat or otherwise, would consider sending another GOP senator to DC. This is not the same as the statehouse where the damage is limited to NJ and buffered by the moderate NJ legislature.

I guess because it’s easier to convert two existing municipal parking lots and move the police station across the street without tearing down a building.


Just on a cashflow basis it's stupid, a fully built out residential and commercial property in R-5 zoning (presumably) on Central there will bring in far more property and sales taxes than any old property on a side street or other avenue. Just because the city owns it already doesn't mean it's "free".

At home. We fill the breadmaker Friday morning timed to be ready to pull the dough when we get home before the machine can bake it. Dough comes out, is braided and risen, egg painted and baked. There's NOTHING like challah fresh out of the oven! Whenever we have guests for Shabbat they think we're gods for making fresh challah every week.

What are you talking about? I said they're kosher, as in they have a hechsher, and that's all. When did I claim to be an expert (on anything but what's a great bagel)? I did not say who hechshered them, but the hechsher is good enough for United Synagogue of Hoboken Rabbi Sheinberg and my wife, and that's all that matters to me.

I will not go down the rabbit hole with you of all the different certification authorities that exist, but you're certainly free to pick the Mashgiach that you trust. There's always someone "holier than thou" that won't eat a piece of cold fruit in your kitchen, and that's simply a fact of Jewish life, but flings about other people being ignorant are not necessary just because they're not as anal as you are about who certifies their freaking bakery.

Why don't you actually contact them and ask about their hechsher if that's a concern of yours???
