I just saw a little black cat on the corner of Eighth & Coles, but I had my dog with me, and he wouldn't let us get near him. He seems pretty young.

I actually had some hipster girl ding her little bike bell at me, because I was in her way, while she was trying to ride on the sidewalk. Hilariously, an older gentleman was walking towards us and yelled, "That's what the bike lanes are for!" before I had the chance.

Re: In New Jersey, a Battle Over a Fluoridation Bill - fluoride will be added to Jersey City water

"The popularity of water fluoridation continues to plummet, with an entire country pulling the plug on the practice in one fell swoop in recent weeks.

On July 29, 2013, the Supreme Court of Israel noted in its ruling on a 2012 petition the State’s intention to cease compulsory fluoridation of public water supplies in 2014.

The November 12, 2012 petition from Yaacov Gurman and the Izun Hozer Association for Dissemination of Health Education demanded that the Ministry of Health order the cessation of fluoridation due to health dangers and the fact that its benefits are no longer widely accepted..."

Why is everyone busting on Sleep Cheap? They saved my butt this year. When I moved, the movers couldn't get my full-sized box spring up to the 2nd floor. I needed a split one, which is impossible to find. All the split box springs are queen-sized or larger. The cheapest one I found online was $300, not including shipping.

My boyfriend had the bright idea to stop at Sleep Cheap. Not only could they get me the box spring, but it arrived and was delivered days earlier than they estimated. The best part: it was $150.

Re: An open letter to the Dog Owners of DTJC (brace yourselves)

I'm a dog owner, and I loathe off-leash dogs. I can't tell you how many times a dog has run across a busy street to say hi to my dog. I don't have the time or energy to deal with your off-leash dog at 5am.
I'm not justifying the attitude you're getting from dog owners, but I do know where it comes from. Dog owners are out there every day--not just when it's sunny or above 70 degrees. They're out there in hurricanes, blizzards, and the wee hours of the night. It's hard to adjust when suddenly, on the first warm day, all the fair-weather people come out. (Seriously, do you people not own coats?)
So, if you're going to enforce off-leash laws, you're going to have to do it year-round, not just in summer when every year, people start complaining about it.

Re: Questions for Great Dane owners
#9
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


Like most large breeds, Great Danes don't need a lot of exercise. In fact, it can be bad for them, especially when they're still growing. My neighbor had one, and she had to stop sending him to doggie day care every day, because he wasn't gaining weight.

And like most large breeds, they aren't yappy. A Great Dane is more suited for apartment living than a Jack Russell, which requires extraordinary amounts of stimulation and exercise.

There are numerous dog runs in JC, where they can run to their heart's content. But, like my greyhound, they probably will only do it for a couple minutes, until they get exhausted and need to go home and nap for 8 hours.

I'm a big fan of breed specific rescues. You may not get a puppy, but most of the older dogs are already potty trained!

I lived on that block of 4th Street for a few years. Those kids seem basically harmless. I've talked back to them before--in a funny way--but I've always been walking my 80-lb dog. And I think they knew I was from the neighborhood.

That being said, if drug deals aren't going down on that corner, all my years of watching The Wire have taught me nothing. There are older guys who hang out there at night and cars stopping by all the time.

Water Fluoridation is obsolete, according to Nobel Prize Scientist Dr. Arvid Carlsson.

In the 1970s, Dr. Carlsson was an outspoken opponent of two failed attempts to fluoridate water supplies in Sweden. Thanks in large part to his efforts, Sweden remains fluoridation free. As Carlsson notes, "nobody talks about [fluoridation] anymore" in Sweden.

As with the vast majority of western Europe, Sweden has rejected water fluoridation, but has still experienced the same decline in tooth decay as experienced in heavily fluoridated countries such as the United States.

Q: In the US, the Centers for Disease Control, which is a US government health body, has proclaimed water fluoridation to be one of the top ten public health achievements of the twentieth century.

A: I disagree profoundly.

The Centers for Disease Control reports that over 41% of 12-15 years olds are afflicted with dental fluorosis due to fluoride over-exposure.

The Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Water will lower safe water fluoride levels because of concerns that fluoride adversely affects bones and teeth. (January 2011)

“The prolonged ingestion of fluoride may cause significant damage to health and particularly to the nervous system,” concludes a review of studies by researchers Valdez-Jimenez, et al. published in Neurologia (June 2011).

Then why are there poison control warnings on toothpaste?

If you want fluoride, buy it. It shouldn't be forced on everyone--as the rest of the world is figuring out.

The push to fluoridate water was controversial--and unpopular--from the start.

Exactly. I grew up with fluoridated water & now my teeth are very brittle--and I'm only in my 40s. It also affects thyroid function, which is something I may have to start worrying about now.

The Cat Practice in Manhattan on 5th Ave & 20th St. I've been going there for more than 15 years. I love them, and my cat loves staying with them.

It's a lot less stressful for the cats, since no dogs are around. And they let the healthy cats out for exercise daily. The last time I was there, a woman was picking up her 20-year-old cat who she had boarded with them.

In the last 12 hours, I've seen...

2. Another woman tear up a piece of paper and toss it on the sidewalk, about 1/2 block from a garbage can on Grove St.
3. A young woman walking a brown & white spaniel(?) puppy who didn't pick up its poop on Manila. She was looking at her phone & waited until I turned the corner to make sure I didn't see her just walk away.

It's so depressing.

I've been in JC over twenty years and have yet to see anything as toxic as the posts on here, but I've also learned that they mean next to nothing. People troll to troll. They have an inflated sense of self-importance due to how many times they post. (Woo-hoo?)

I've been going to Taqueria since it's opened. I've never had one bad experience with the service there. Some of the other customers, YES, but not the service. And I've never had one bad meal there.

When you're out and about in Jersey City, you get a true picture of the people and the businesses, something you don't get on here. I hope Taqueria is around for a long time--and I hope people make up their own minds about a place, before they take anything on here seriously.
