FYI...there will be people at the County Leg meeting speaking out about the Monroe Community Hospital. Anyone else who would like to speak needs to call 753-1950 to sign up. The meeting starts at 6pm.
If we can't use oil, or coal, or natural gas, what do you suggest we use for energy, cow flatulence? By the way, that was quite a clumsy attempt at a completely irrelevant and gratuitous criticism of Ronald Reagan.
What will I do now? I will shine a harsh spotlight on the staggering hypocrisy of the moonbats and ideologues who whine about CO2 but at the same time delay the inevitable exploitation of our abundant natural gas resources.
This planet is a trivial dust speck whose only significance is as humankind's point of departure into the cosmos. As a concession to the weepy sentimentalists, perhaps we can turn it into nice little museum when we're done with it.
Beebe is a good and honest man. Unfortunately he is a Democrat, which in Greece is code for electoral target practice by the Grand Old Party. There hasn't been a Democratic supervisor in Greece since the Great Depression and there hasn't been a Democrat on the town board in decades. Good luck!
People, whether they are elected officials or regular citizens, are remembered for both what they do and what they do not do.
When I remember President Ronald Reagan, only one thing comes to mind. When faced with the emerging HIV/AIDS crisis, he did absolutely nothing.
Just recently, the world was presented with information that the concentration of CO2 in Earth's atmosphere had reached a distressing milestone of 400 parts per million. The question I have is this: What will YOU do now?
Honestly, I contemplate environmental issues every single day and ask myself what more I can do to help. And honestly, there is not much more I can personally do. My carbon footprint is small. I have been on a self-imposed gasoline limit of 5 gallons per week for over two years.
But there are bigger questions looming right now that must take into consideration the 400 ppm milestone. In light of this milestone, considering development of new fossil fuel resources is nothing short of insane. President Obama needs to stop Keystone XL and Governor Cuomo needs to ban fracking in NY. Elected officials in general need to stop lying. There is not such thing as clean coal. Natural gas via hydrofracking or other means is not a bridge fuel to the future. Natural gas is a detour around efforts to develop and convert to renewable, sustainable and truly clean energy sources. Natural gas is also a U-turn to old thinking. Gas companies and their spokespeople in elected office repeatedly tell us we are sitting on huge reserves of cheap natural gas and this in turn leads back to thinking Americans have energy to waste.
400 ppm is serious. Elected officials and citizens must take decisive action now and demand even more action be taken by all around the world. How we respond to the news of 400 ppm will decide what type of future Earth will have...or whether we have a future.
I pick candice is the winner of American idol she is the best singer
Interesting article, with a lot of numbers thrown around, with the exception of one number. ACTRochester.org says that 79% of black "families" in the city of Rochester are single parent for the 2007-10 period, up from 74% in 2000. Nationally, the percentage of black "families" that are single parent is 63%. The black "family" has disintegrated and this is a direct contributor to poverty. The proliferaton of Dr. Conrad Murray "family values" in the black community means that a guy that fathers 8 kids from 7 different mommies is not all that unusual. The only way to change this is to demonize single parenthood in the same way we demonize other things in society that we want less of - cigarette smoking, obesity, texting while driving, and more. We just collectively need the guts to call a spade a spade. The "lifestyle choice" of having kids out of wedlock is wrong, and should be discouraged. I, for one, and sick and tired of paying for somebody else's irresponsible lifestyle "choices." Enough is enough.
Kree has been my choice since the performance of Stars, That day she touched so many hearts with her Pure heart felt performance, even then, Nikki said "That's the Voice" and Kree has been true during the whole competition..!! And yes I believe the producers Try to throw her under the bus..."Really?" America just showed you, you can't deny "Real Talent" ..Kree all the way... shame on the producers..!
For what it's worth, from a suburbanite, the proposed building aesthetically will be an improvement for University when compared to the Gleason façade. As far as the "character of the neighborhood" a multi unit dwelling fits right in with the pre-existing apartment building just to the east of this site. It's not as though this is being dropped into the upper Monroe neighborhood of single and two family homes.
It sounds like the GEH just is looking for a way to lock down that real estate without paying market rates until they have the funding or interest in expansion.
I love this album!!!! BEST EVER!!!
This evening Bill McKibben, founder of climate-change activist group 350.org, spoke at the commencement of UB's College of Architecture and Planning. He told us that he got word that the 400 level was exceeded this afternoon. Needless to say, we were all deeply disturbed by that, but also very moved by his inspiring speech. These students will never forget what they heard today, and I know that all of them will be very cognizant of the implications of their work on the planet.
I simply cannot believe what I am reading, except for the above comment (saying that she never liked Angie because she didn't seem genuine). In fact, even that is putting it kindly! I did like a few of her performances behind the piano, but I just . . . couldn't believe her. And it seemed to me that she spent more time playing the politics game than anything else. Oh -- and most important -- while her singing was not completely without merit, she didn't have the talent level of the other two.
So -- on to more positive things -- I, too, was stunned at the choice for the finale -- but only because I have been deeply dissappointed by voting in the past! For me, Kree is great, I've always loved her, but . . .
Candice Glover is a singer for the ages! Not original? Ridiculous! And who cares? Even on the worst song choices, she never let me down a single time. From nearly the very beginning, I thought that Candice's talent pretty much towered over the rest -- even some of the better female singers.
Though I still like Kree despite some shaky stuff over the last month, I feel like if Candice Glover isn't the "next American Idol", there's no justice in the world! I would have felt that way based on her performance of the Cure's "Lovesong" alone most likely, but she's just -- she just knocks it out of the park again and again!!!
Candice is the best vocalist by far; and afterall, this is a vocal competition! Candice you are so beautiful and such a powerful singer from your soul! I miss Amber too!
Kree Harrison doesn't need sympathy votes! Geez people, she is truly talented and like Angie, she writes her own songs as well. Also, you don't have to run around the stage and get dressed up to entertain when you have a great voice. George Strait has sold millions and he is a simple country guy in a pair of jeans, a shirt and a hat!
I'm waiting for someone to tell us why we should trust the Eastman House gang given the way they stiffed the Monroe Voiture vets the last time.
I like that the final two are Kree and Candice!!! I would like to see Kree win it, and I will be voting!!! but they are both very powerful singers!!! so who knows!!!!
Kree's homecoming video certainly helped her. So it's not level playing ground unfortunately. Angie is enormously talented. She should be in the final two.
I don't think you can go wrong with any of the top 3. I loved Angie and Kree best only because I hear more originality in there voices, but Amber is Fabulous as well. I think any of the 3 would have been a disappointing loss, but Angie will most certainly be heard from again!!! Her goodbye song was NOT her original, it was a Colton Dixon song. However, the background song from her hometown visit was get original and I hope that we will hear that as her first released single VERY soon!
Judges.... Well BLAH! Talk about in genuine! I think Keith was the only one not playing an angle!
I picked Kree from the very beginning. She is a very talented girl and the best they have had in a long time. There is nothing phony about Kree, what you see is what you get. Even though I think Candace has talent , I am rooting for Kree all the way.
Think it is important to not be over critical, about people. All 3 of the singers are great. God has certainly blessed them all. Don't be too hard on Angie. She may not have had the hardship and pain life sometimes brings but should we really think less of a person's talent and ability because she has a fairly blessed life. When I think of what she had to come to the stage with, voice and piano , her talent is enormous. Don't forget the song she picked the night they performed any song you wish you had written was a Kari Jobe song, awesome Christian musician. Angie shows us she is brave and talented in so many ways. Look past her face and see her inner heart.
