Niagara Falls Jokes

March 2, 2017 Staff 0

Delaware North owner and billionaire Jeremy Jacobs was visiting his restaurants and food stands in Niagara Falls State Park when he decided to go for a drive through the city of Niagara Falls. He drove past a vacant lot where there was a small group of children who were eating the grass in the lot because they were so hungry.

Jacobs had his limo driver pull to the curb and he rolled down his window and asked a woman, who was watching over the children, “Why are they eating grass?” She told him that many people in the city of Niagara Falls were poor because all the tourists who come here every year eat in the state park instead of restaurants and diners in the city.

Snow covers the Sierra Nevada mountains and the shoreline of Lake Tahoe on Monday, Jan. 30, 2017.

Measurements taken in the Sierra Nevada show the range’s snowpack at historically high levels. The average snowpack across the range was at 185% for March 1, the Department of Water Resources said. The Sierra Nevada provides about a third of California’s water when it melts in the spring and summer. It’s the biggest snowpack in 22 years and another sign that doomsday has not arrived for California, at least.

The Dalai Lama speaks in Albany. Clare and Sara Bronfman are seated onstage with him.

As readers know, NXIVM conducts “human potential and ethics” seminars in Albany and elsewhere. Keith Raniere is the company’s founder. And Clare and Sara Bronfman (two of heiresses of the Seagram’s fortune) started investing with Raniere around 2003.

By 2007 the Bronfman sisters had invested more than $100 million in commodities, real estate and in litigation to sue adversaries who were preventing NXIVM from reaching its full potential.

Some of the litigation was aimed at indicting adversaries, including one of Raniere’s harem members who left the NXIVM group.

One of several letters Anthony Bruce wrote, unsolicited, to me.

For the growing number of readers who eagerly await the next in the series on former Assistant US Attorney Anthony M. Bruce, there is some news.

Mr. Bruce has sent me a series of letters giving snippets of his view of his side of the stories – and there are many – about people, I suspect, he falsely tried to prosecute.

Mr. Bruce sent seven letters, some of them handwritten, some typed. All were mailed to my post office box.

I hope to publish them and address the issues he raises in an article very soon.

OBAMA’S’ BAND OF THIEVES… AG SESSIONS…ENFORCE THE LAWS!

February 23, 2017 Staff 0

I believe that the President is rushing to prove to us that he is a man of his word by being true to his campaign promises and honoring all of them! President Trump has nothing to prove…we know he will do everything he can to honor the promises! As far as the rest are concerned…you can lead a “donkey” to water but you can’t make him drink!

Of greater importance right now is the task of “getting his house” in order. He absolutely MUST rid his “House” of EVERY SINGLE Obama Presidential appointment, before he does anything else! Every single one is a “submarine” and will undermine and torpedo his administration for 8 years if he doesn’t clean house now!

What’s Next for Construction Safety and Health?

February 21, 2017 Staff 0

By Randy Palladino

Construction safety and health have come a long way in the past 40 years. Over the past dozen years, fatality rates have fallen for construction laborers in both general industry and construction, even as the overall number of workplace fatalities has increased. Injury rates in construction are now similar to those in retail work – an achievement that seemed out of reach 15 years ago. Despite this progress, more than 930 construction workers were killed on the job in 2015 and almost 80,000 suffered serious injuries. In the past, tying worker safety to public health concerns has been a successful strategy to improve conditions for workers. Asbestos didn’t become a national issue until it was seen as a threat to children in schools. Community demands for information about what chemicals were being used at nearby plants resulted in the passage of state Right-to-Know laws, which eventually led to OSHA’s Hazard Communication standard. In light of this, how can we move forward and keep making improvements? Here’s a look at what has worked and what could be done better.

A federal lawsuit filed by NXIVM (pronounced nexium) against cult tracker Rick A. Ross was dismissed last month by US District Judge Katharine S. Hayden after 14 years in federal court.

Keith Raniere, of Albany, NY, is the founder of NXIVM, a “human potential company” that offers personal growth seminars based on Raniere’s “Rational Inquiry” system.

In the lawsuit, Raniere claimed defamation, copyright and trade secret violations after Ross published reports by Dr. Paul Martin, a psychologist, and Dr. John Hochman, a psychiatrist, which characterized NXIVM as a cult that brainwashed seminar participants.
