Re: Fireworks Explosion Kills Man in Jersey City

Curious why they will not release the name of this 33 year old man? Seems like the cops have more important things do? This should be turned over the the SJ/CO bureau for follow up.

Seems like a an appropriate time to call 911 for a community organizer or social worker. Or maybe Murphy can just broaden the mandate of the NJ Contact Tracer Corp with a shoot to kill directive?

Curious when Bertolli became "former" ... the word is in the headline and in the first paragraph but nowhere in the article that discusses the long relationship with the Mayor, does ist explain when/how the relationship ended? And the mayor's spokeperson had no comment.

The worst thing these liberal media outlets did to themselves was to shutdown the commentary at the ends of stories and opinion pieces. The claim was to stop racism... so many legitimate vulgar free voices were silenced allegedly to protect people from some lunatic transcribing an all capitals racist manifesto. I smiled everytime I finished reading a story, wanted to comment, and instead saw SL pleas for readers to subscribe. Subscribe to something without a voice? Were they serious?

BTW did they ever find that poor little missing girl in southern NJ. (Dulce?) They shut down that story's comment section and every once in a while some reader would slip a comment about that into another story's comment section. A huge story that had people clicking, wanting too opine and they missed the boat on that story which was probably the end for many readers.

Hopefully they will follow through and keep opinion pieces very separate from news stories that do contain facts/information only.

Shouldn't the anger at the JCPD response be directed at the 50+ individuals fighting in the street? Trying to disarm police officers in that chaos is not a smart move.

Your political nonsense is boring...


Lemme get this right, you claim all this professional risk management background and that of course you saw this coming, but then get behind a ridiculous chinese lab theory? Who's a dope?



You are funny... that is what risk management, emergency preparation and root cause analysis is all about. Of course the expectation is that all parties are open to process improvement and resilience. I do not get that sense of cooperation from the benevolent Chinese government hence my more nefarious view of their behavior... here are some fun facts to mull over in your self-isolation:

Around 2005 in response to SARS, WHO issued pandemic response protocol to integrate governments and businesses into a uniformed response; that all came crashing down when the swine flu hit Mexico. certain escalation triggers between the linear protocol phases failed. WHO released the new Pandemic Continuum Phases which is cyclical. Staying away from politics, a lesson learned from this is that WHO ignored their own phase escalation criteria and finally declared a pandemic in March, despite the obvious evidence acting globally. Most public/private sector pandemic plans had that WHO pandemic declaration as a trigger.

A critical risk to the WFH contingency was whether the ISPs could manage the additional network volume. Those companies should be commended... after 5 weeks at home, I have seen very little degradation in my service. Companies tested this with internal WFH requirements... but the risk was what happens when schools close and other companies activate?

A lot of media consternation about PPE stockpiles. They cost money to maintain and many of the products have a shelf life. In 2005 the Health and Safety SMEs provided recommended PPE list to their clients. Our Purchasing Team reported back there were 3 - 4 month backorders on regular and N95 masks. All the major companies and public sector were buying. Ventilators brought then are obsolete now, like most technology.

We spent $3M preparing on PPE alone. 4 years later, refreshing our supply, we could not find any public health agency that would take masks sitting unused after 4 years. They technically became a biohazard as we contacted companies to remove them... then with economic conditions at the time, restocking was not a consideration.

So yes... watching this all unfold is interesting. We never did foresee the level political and media grandstanding. But it is a joy listening to the armchair experts. Stay Safe and Isolate!

Yeah, except that actual virus scientists have been warning about corona virus transfers from the wild to humans for decades. They've seen close relatives of Covid 19 in the wild, and SARS was a such a close relative that some virologists call this SARS 2. But be a moron believing conspiracy theories, it suits you.

The vaccine is only good for this virus strain.Typically the "seasonal" flu shot is good for only specific strains in October... by March/April of the following year, the virus has mutated and eventually burns out. This is about immunity systems and effective epidemic/pandemic control protocols.

The Chinese government can deny all it wants... but their research was about bio-weaponizing viruses and this was a lab experiment that backfired. Like a rocket blowing up on a launchpad. Now that the bad actors have reliable data, this changes everything and that is the new norm. That means large companies leaving NYC area and employees working remotely where possible.

This is funny... because I have been thinking someone is gaslighting the blog, but I am not sure who or why? And then another "newbie" chimed in on another thread... the profile was created a few minutes after this lunatic poster.

I did have a thought back to that crazy Solomon character who ran for Ward E council seat and displayed his OCD with constant, repetitive ramblings, usually during a full moon. He was banned, but kept sneaking back.

Shutting down the public comments sections started with leftwing websites like Salon, HuffPo and Daily Beast and eventually spread to CNN, MSNBC etc. all under the guise of stopping racism. The rare exceptions today are NYT, Politico and???

Just go to the left leaning Yahoo News, fortunately their comment section remains open, but almost all the "opinion" or "news" links they direct traffic to are no longer open forums.

I am not sure why you got your panties in a bunch over what I wrote... but I am sure you miss the good old days reading the Letters to the Editor in the SL. Free speech was so much easier to control.

Jersey City Bike Lanes... WTF is wrong with bike riders
#19
Home away from home

Has anyone else noticed bike riders not using the spaces just for them? Can they be cited by traffic regulations?

Yesterday a woman bike rider was riding eastbound on the Grand Street sidewalk in Paulus Hook. I had to stop to let her by and I gave her and earful telling her to use her well marked bike lane. The eastbound pedestrians she was weaving through heard me and agreed.

Earlier this week I saw 2 bike riders in one 10 minute walk to PATH riding on the sidewalk... but the clincher was the 3rd guy using the bike lane who blew by the crossing guard trying to stop him @ intersect of Grand and Washington.

The rider had the east bound stop light (as did cars) and rode around the crossing guard (arm extended in the middle of the bike path) while families were crossing the street, headed to the school at the corner.

I know... you can't fix rude, stupid and dangerous.

Stop blaming the plaza for failed businesses. Pedestrian plazas exist ALL over the world with much success so not sure why JC is the exception according to you and other naysayers. Plaza isn't going anywhere so just deal with it.


This. Yvonne and her servants (most notably that Two Boots owner) are having a meltdown over the forthcoming renovation work and are trying to blame each and every problem a business has on it. It’s been a wild success but a small fraction of NIMBYs feel ever so slightly inconvenienced by it and feel it was much better when it was full of homeless people, ghetto fast food chains and dollar stores and idling double parked cars.
