iBLOWN SPICE MORE ADDICTIVE THAN CRACK

BOLO: iBLOWN INCENSE
THIS STUFF SHOULD BE ILLEGAL – ANY STORE SELLING THIS
SHOULD BE PROSECUTED
I URGE LEGISLATORS TO MAKE THIS ONE A CONTROLLED ILLEGAL SUBSTANCE
You see this at some smoke shops and bodegas. It’s got a cute package that mimics an iPhone. Spice isn’t illegal (Because nobody knows what the hell it is) the packages usually warn that it’s “not for human consumption” (winkety wink wink). But this stuff is no joke. We have seen smokers who have tried to stop using this withdraw for 3 or 4 days. This stuff can cause brain damage, iBlown smokers lose the ability to think or respond in a timely or even logical manner. At $25 a bag you’re buying what could be you’re total downfall. We’ve seen people lose their jobs and family and not give a damn about it. Instant addiction is what we have here. Make marijuana legal we have to stop people from smoking this poison. ISIS couldn’t have come up with a better weapon against our youth.

WILLIE COLÓN ENDORSES ROB ASTORINO

I am a democrat… Mi gente, it happens every time. We vote and work to get our democratic candidate elected and after they win. They forget their promises.  There is little or no access. Trying to meet with them is like having an audience with the Pope.  Probably easier with his holiness.
Why? Because the Latino vote is a joke. Democrats know we don’t even think about swinging to the other candidate. That’s out of the question because it’s evil; because you’re a traitor if you vote for the republican.
So, no matter how bad the democrat is, even if he’s going to jail; we still have to vote for them.
How smart is that?  Once elected they totally change on us and deal with us with contempt and rule with impunity because:  1.) you already voted for them.  2.) Next time around you’ll do exactly the same thing again.
Elections are about US and what WE need not about the party. We want ALL elected officials and candidates from ALL parties to come to come to us, to covet our vote.
To make that happen, we have to vote smarter; we need to vote for the candidate that meets OUR needs. Latinos have to become a swing vote. 
In this case, personally, I like the man; he’s a decent man who’d make an excellent governor.  He’s the Westchester county exec which is not chopped liver, 450 square miles and about a million population 17% are Latinos.
Rob Astorino doesn’t come from a royal family or political dynasty. He doesn’t think his family was born to rule. 
He went to school at Fordham University in the Bronx. He has a BA in Communications and before he went into politics, became one of the founders of ESPN radio. He belongs to AFTRA -AMERICAN FEDERATION OF RADIO & TV ARTIST, like me. He’s got religion; he’s started the Catholic Channel on Sirius Radio.
I met him last year and he came across as a sane, humble, confident man.  He didn’t just realize a couple of months ago that he needed to speak Spanish to get votes! (And come with a couple of phonetically memorized phrases; sounding like Frank Perdue) He studied the language from way back because he wanted to; because he admires and respects our culture.  Rob Astorino, right now, has one of the most diverse administrations in the state. That says a lot about how he would run our state government.
We don’t need somebody with tons of money; deep pockets, that hides, throws a barrage of negative commercials and not even bothers to show up for a debate. We don’t want somebody that starts a crime commission and obstructs it when it starts to head his way.
At this election, at this time, I’m voting for Rob Astorino for the next governor of the Great State of New York and I urge all Democrats and Latinos to join me.

Massive tunneling machine stuck under downtown Seattle, fix could cost taxpayers millions | Fox News

In Uncategorized on May 9, 2014 at 12:06 pm

At 57 feet in diameter, it’s touted as the world’s biggest tunneling machine. It was even given a name, Bertha.

But now, after digging just over 1,000 feet, Bertha is broken down and stuck underneath Seattle’s downtown waterfront.

And fixing the massive mess could cost taxpayers millions.

The tunneling machine is the key workhorse in a $3.1 billion tunnel project aimed at replacing the Alaska Way Viaduct, a double-decker elevated highway that was damaged in the 2001 Nisqually earthquake. Bertha’s meltdown, though, has put the project in jeopardy of being the West Coast version of the biggest public works boondoggle in U.S. history, Boston’s “big dig” — which cost taxpayers $14.6 billion, nearly four times the original price tag.

“People should be very worried about what’s going on right now,” said Dori Monson, a radio host on KIRO in Seattle. “To have the state saying, ‘we’re not paying for the overruns.’ You have the contractor saying, ‘we’re not paying.’ The contractor has a provable history of making other people pay. So that means it’s going to be the taxpayers.”

The contractor, Seattle Tunnel Partners (STP), already has put in for $190 million in additional pay due to unforeseen problems.

Among the issues the project has encountered are: too much groundwater; a labor dispute involving the International Longshore and Warehouse Union; and a well that Bertha ran into, damaging her massive cutter head and main bearing. The steel pipe was put there by the state, and STP thinks the state should pay.

How exactly Bertha got stuck underground is an open question. The running theory is the machine overheated when it hit the well pipe, but the issue will be argued by the attorneys.

“Who’s ultimately responsible and liable for that time and cost is going to be determined by a review of the contract,” said Chris Dixon, of Seattle Tunnel Partners.

State officials say the contractor knew about the well and hit it anyway. The Department of Transportation gave Fox News documents supporting its case.

The issue is critical, because fixing the tunnel-boring machine is expected to take until March 2015 and cost $125 million. That’s $45 million more than STP paid for Bertha.

State officials say they’re trying to protect taxpayers.

“We have written the most robust contract we could possibly write with the best experts from around the country,” said state DOT Secretary Lynn Peterson. “And we brought a team together on the legal side to make sure we’re protecting taxpayers at every step of the way.”

The state has denied a majority of the contractor’s change orders, but that doesn’t end the dispute.

A court ultimately will decide who’s responsible for the delays and cost overruns. That puts taxpayers in danger of being on the hook for a project some fear may never get finished.

Willie Colón Delivers speech at HUD Hispanic Heritage Month celebration

In Uncategorized on November 26, 2009 at 6:46 am

THE NEW YORK AMSTERDAM NEWS October 15-October 21, 2009 
  Willie Colon Delivers speech
 

 

at   HUD Hispanic Heritage
  
Month celebration
 By ERICA SOTO Special to the AmNews 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

  

 

    

Salsa legend Willie Colon was the keynote speaker for a
government-sponsored celebration held on Wednesday
afternoon.

  On the 30th floor of a federal building in lower Manhattan,
the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
(HUD) held a small celebration to honor Hispanic contributions.
The celebration fell on the tail end of Hispanic Heritage month, which spans
from September 15 through October 15.
  With an expansive view of the city behind him, Colon
expressed how proud he was of Supreme Court Justice Sonia
Sotomayor. “I’m all for having Latinos on the other side of
that bench looking down for a change,” he said, followed by
laughter from the crowd.

 

Colon, also Puerto Rican and a Bronx native like Sotomayor,
grew up in Mott Haven. Colon’s speech continued, peppered with jokes while he
discussed the importance of the contributions of Hispanics.
Among historical Hispanic figures he mentioned were
Simon Bolivar and Jose Marti, both liberators in Latin
America.
The federally run department that sponsored the event
gives grants and loans to people looking to purchase
homes. As the senior customer liaison for the Federal Housing
Administration, Migdalia Murati believes the subprime
crisis affected people across all races in the U.S. “Yes, Hispanics
and Blacks were targeted, but it was really anyone
who couldn’t get a loan before,” Murati said.
In a 2006 case study put out by HUD, it revealed barriers
they found between Hispanics and homeownership.
Among the barriers were that they didn’t know how the purchasing
process worked, they didn’t believe a house was attainable and
they had poor financial skills.
As targets for subprime housing loans, Colon said, “A
lot of us are in a better position to help each other.” He
said that Hispanics who have been here for longer should
help recent immigrants.
Colon feared that recent immigrants, as well as nativeborn
Hispanics, would be lumped together because of
their similar appearance. “It’s in our interest to look out for
them.”
Colon addressed his concern of Hispanic perception
and self-image in this country. “The violence against Hispanics
has increased 45 percent in the U.S.” He explained that
Hollywood’s depiction of Hispanics was one of the villain—
including roles as hoodlums, drug traffickers and terrorists.
Colon said that Latinos could be the next scapegoat for
things going wrong in the country.
He told the story of how, when he ran for public advocate
in New York in 2001, his opponent used one of his
gangster-looking album covers as evidence against
Colon’s candidacy.
A social and political activist, as well as a musician
and composer, Colon ultimately stressed that Hispanics
should look towards the future. “We have to have the
vision and maturity to take the next step. If we want to be
accepted in this country, we must first accept each other,
and that’s the key.”

Entregan premios a hispanos destacados en diversos campos en Nueva York 

2009-11-17

 El Mensajero

El músico estadounidense de origen puertorriqueño Willie Colón muestra su premio Innovadores Latinos, concedido por la revista Latino Trend hoy, 16 de noviembre de 2009, en la sede de Naciones Unidas de Nueva York (EEUU). Hispanos destacados en diversos campos como la música, política, tecnología, banca, negocios y educación recibieron este lunes el galardón.
 
Nueva York, 16 de Noviembre (EFE).- Hispanos destacados en diversos campos como la música, política, tecnología, banca, negocios y educación recibieron hoy el premio Innovadores Latinos, concedido por la revista “Latino Trend” en la sede de Naciones Unidas.
El músico y compositor Willie Colón; el presidente del condado de El Bronx, Rubén Díaz; el director de Iniciativas de Comunicaciones de Microsoft, José Piñero; la profesora de la Escuela de Leyes de la Universidad de Nueva York, Jenni Rivera, y el gerente regional en Nueva York de Capital One Bank, Richard Gonzáles, recibieron hoy la estatuilla.
También lo hicieron la dueña de la empresa Cibao Meat, Lutzi Vieluf; el director de marcas hispanas de Coca-Cola, Randall Berman; la presidenta de Continental Food Beverage, Elizabeth Chalas; el abogado Miguel Pozo; la pediatra Angela Díaz; y la activista Laura Posada, entre otros.
“Los latinos innovadores nos hacen sentir orgullosos de nuestro legado y, sin importar si se reconocen como tales, representan un importante modelo para nuestra juventud porque son visibles y activos en la cultura y comunidad hispana”, señala la revista en su edición de noviembre, cuya portada dedica a los premiados.

Añade que “un latino innovador trasciende fronteras y define tendencias tanto en la cultura general como en la hispana”, al tiempo que destaca que el músico Willie Colón es “una voz respetada a nivel social tanto en la industria de entretenimiento como en el frente político”.
En declaraciones a Efe durante la ceremonia, Colón recordó su trabajo junto al fallecido cantante Héctor Lavoe al integrar por primera vez la música típica puertorriqueña a la salsa, género que fusionó también con ritmos brasileños y clásicos.

Sobre De Piñero, quien en julio asumió el cargo de director de Iniciativas de Comunicaciones de Microsoft TV, Vídeo y Música, se destaca que también es miembro de la Junta de Hopelink, una organización cuya misión es promover la autosuficiencia entre los miembros de la comunidad de Seattle Eastside en el estado de Washington.

Además, antes fue parte de la junta de Global Partnership, una organización dedicada a expandir las oportunidades para los pobres.
“Para mí es un honor y no me lo esperaba. Uno hace el trabajo por amor a la causa y la pasión por ayudar a la comunidad. Para mí es un compromiso profesional trabajar para que más hispanos logren más éxitos en Estados Unidos”, dijo a Efe De Piñero.
Del presidente del condado de El Bronx, cargo al que Díaz llegó mediante elección especial el pasado abril, destaca su esfuerzo en pro de las familias trabajadoras durante sus años en la Asamblea estatal.

“Hay que dar las gracias también a los pioneros puertorriqueños que hicieron esfuerzos por mejorar la vida de la comunidad latina en Nueva York”, explicó a Efe Días, quien puso el ejemplo de personalidades como Ramón Vélez, Evelina Antonetti y Antonia Pantoja y apuntó que “la historia se hace todos los días, por lo que se debe recordar a los jóvenes que aún queda trabajo por hacer”.
Lutzi Vieluf, otra de las premiadas, es una dominicana que dejó la psicología para continuar los pasos de su padre, fundador de la firma Cibao Meat.
Entre las mujeres cuyos esfuerzos fueron reconocidos hoy también está Laura Posada, que, junto a su esposo, el pelotero Jorge Posadas, crearon una fundación para dar a conocer la craneosinostosis, enfermedad con la que nació su hijo.
De la pediatra Díaz, la publicación destaca su labor como directora del Centro de Salud para Adolescentes del Monte Sinaí, un programa único que provee educación en materia de salud para adolescentes.

También se reconoce el trabajo de Maritza Puello, la primera periodista contratada para supervisar el lanzamiento en junio del 2003 de NY1 Noticias, y el de José Luis Rodríguez, que en 1981 fundó la estación HITN-TV, una organización privada sin ánimo de lucro para mejorar la educación, cultura y aspiraciones de los hispanos y que llega a más de 33 millones de hogares.
