Password Trouble

I’m having trouble with my other account, I can’t rememebr my passwors, when I reset it I often get the link in the email doesn’t work, and when it does, I reset my password then after it’s accepted it doesn’t work again. Worst part is that WordPress has no custmoer service line I can use and the support forums aren’t always easy for me to use, I have a disability.

Tri-State Area Leads Pack As Weekly National Unemployment Claims Hit 7-Year Low

CBS New York

WASHINGTON (CBSNewYork/AP) – The number of people seeking U.S. unemployment benefits fell to the lowest level in seven years last week, a sign the job market is steadily improving.

Weekly unemployment benefit applications dropped 24,000 to 297,000, the Labor Department said Thursday. That’s the fewest since May 12, 2007. The four week average, a less volatile measure, dipped 2,000 to 323,250.

New York, New Jersey and Connecticut fared among the best for states that saw a drop in claims.

WEB EXTRA: Labor Dept. Weekly Claims Report (pdf)

For the week that ended March 1 – one week behind the national figures – there were 20,637 fewer applications made by New Yorkers, due to fewer layoffs in transportation and warehousing, restaurants, and education.

New Jersey claims were down 2,565, due to fewer layoffs in hotels, restaurants, transportation and warehousing, and retail.

In Connecticut, applications dropped by 1,609. No reason was…

City Budgets

Its been a while since I have been here to post. However, last night, I attended the city budget hearing for Norfolk, Va. The school board, firefighters, concerned citizens, they were all there. Couple weeks ago, I read parts of the proposed budget. Some city workers (and apparentley all  teachers) were not getting pay raises, or were delayed. However, the city has money to spend on an outlet mall project, a hotel project, yadda yadda yadda. Is that right? Makes no sense to me. What if we decided to suspend the city council’s payraise? The mayor’s? What if one day we decided to raise their taxes 400%? Or if they ride public transit, shut down whatever route they depend on everyday to get between home and work or school? Would be nice if their water or sewer fees went up. Sounds crony to me. Take care of your household first then the other items. The household is your cictizens.

A labor stoppage could come on March 21 unless an agreement is reached on a new three-year contract or the Metropolitan Transportation Authority asks the White House to intervene with a second Presidential Emergency Board.

The request for the second board would put off the strike until July at the earliest, Newsday reported.

The dispute is over pay raises and union givebacks. The MTA said it can’t afford any increases. The agency recently rejected a mediator’s proposal because it does not include a work rule change to trim expenses and keep fare hikes down.

LIRR unions have been without a contract since…

State Lawmakers To Look Into NJ TRANSIT’s Super Bowl Planning

CBS New York

TRENTON, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – State lawmakers will look into NJ TRANSIT’s planning for the Super Bowl and for superstorm Sandy.

As WCBS 880’s Sean Adams reported, lawmakers are seeking answers for a spate of recent fumbles and missteps.

State Sen. Robert Gordon from Fairlawn told The Record he sees a lackadaisical approach to planning.

Initially, next month’s Senate Oversight Committee hearing was to focus on Sandy and the decision to store trains in flood-prone areas.

But the senator also wants to expand the focus to examine other problems, including the overcrowding logjam leaving Super Bowl XLVIII on Sunday, the problems with NJ TRANSIT’s website and the expiration of trademarks for seven NJT logos.

Twice as many fans took NJ TRANSIT trains to the game than the transit agency…
