By Lou V Saturday, March 13, 2010, Staten Island NY (pictures below taken Sunday March 14) — The forecast said it was going to rain all day on Saturday, with some heavy winds. By 11am that morning, we started to get minor instantaneous power outages — where the power would flicker off for a second […]

Attempt to Buy a Farm in Brooklyn

Hi, I’d like to know how to apply for a garden space for the gardens owned by NYC that are located by the train tracks on 62nd Street in Brooklyn, between 11th and 12th Avenues, in Borough Park. I was talking to a farmer there today, and he said they have been told they have […]

Space Race: Amazon’s Jeff Bezos vs Elon Musk

Elon Musk = Tesla, SolarCity, and SpaceX Warren Buffett recently announced he’s pouring billions on Solar and Wind power for the future.

The Story of Storyville

The Story of Storyville

Stumbled upon the story of Storyville while watching a video of the history of New Orleans Jazz. It was a section of New Orleans where prostitution was made legal from 1897-1917. Storyville was created under city ordinance to regulate prostitution and drugs — the “if you can’t beat it, regulate it” philosophy. A Blue Book that listed prostitutes […]

No Child Gets Left Behind — Leaves Children Behind

No Child Gets Left Behind is one of the biggest boondoggles in education history. Forces principals, ironically, to leave kids behind (or push out of their public school to private schools) so school scores well on tests, because principals and teachers are judged by the scores. Created a mult-billion dollar tutoring industry causing parents to […]

Twitter stock was up 5.3 percent today in anticipation of their after-hours 2Q2015 earnings call — and then after hours it was initially up over 6 percent as they announced they had beat earnings top and bottom. And then.. as they were doing the live earnings call, streaming on Periscope, the acting CEO said that […]

Please Make Me a Black Circular Logo

Please Make Me a Black Circular Logo

Came across the Louisville Slugger twitter account the other day and it rang a bell … … looked similar to the logo of a music publishing company I follow, Super Ego Records. Oddly enough, as I was leaving my basement office an hour later I noticed one of the boxes I had nearby, storing stuff, had […]
