Re: “Ten things you might not know about Seabreeze

I miss the days when you could just go and hang out there. There were no gates or admissions you just hung out in the arcade all day. I remember 1 summer my friend and I got bracelets and road the Jack Rabbit over and over non stop. Those were great days. Miss them.

Re: “Ten things you might not know about Seabreeze

I love the park with trees and shade where families can rest a bit before their next adventure. Some Parks are just paved lots where there is no respite. Thanks Seabreeze.

How about the "Monkey House" and the ride through haunted themed house. At the bottom of park next to arcade.

Re: “UR has new sex misconduct policy

1. this is the bare fucking minimum the school could do. it's essentially damage control for the litany of sexual assaults that happen at this god damn school.

2. who at the UR has ever read, or even heard of, the school's rules/policy on consent and sexual assault? Its not like its written on a billboard somewhere, if a student doesn't know what consent is going into this school, they will continue to be wrong.

3. If the university wants to make a real change they need new administrators who are better trained (I still don't think half of them even know what consent is even now that its in their little rule book) and who understand the concept of victim blaming because these assholes obviously only care about the reputation of the school.

That being said Morgan Levy is one of the few well educated and supportive members of the university administration but from what I've seen the school has put her in a position that makes them look good but cuts her power to actually make a difference.

Re: “Ten things you might not know about Seabreeze

Thanks for the history tidbit, Elaine! Seabreeze was named Dreamland Park for close to 30 years following World War II. The park switched back to Seabreeze in the 1970's.

I notice that they don't mention that Seabreeze was once called Dreamland Park.

Re: ““Game of Thrones” Season 4, Episode 9: The Watchers on the Wall

I agree with everything here. I understand it is television but the whole battle just felt small to me. As for Jon's friends getting killed, I didn't think they had died in the books. I feel like the producers just don't want to pay as many actors to talk next season so they made some cuts. I liked Sam in the first season but I think he and Gilly could have a rousing contest for who is more boring. I am not looking forward to more of them on their own if the book plot lines are followed.

Re: ““Game of Thrones” Season 4, Episode 9: The Watchers on the Wall

I've been looking for somewhere on the internet to see what peoples reactions to this episode were as i only watch the show and i felt really dissapointed in: a) the way the episode played out - the fact that mance rayder would only attack with a couple of giants still has me absolutely stunned. i mean, if he had attacked at full force, not only is that common sense but he would have won? b) "the biggest fire... *the such and such* has ever seen" and yet the depiction of the fire was HORRIBLE and very under dramatic being the climax of season 4 to which has been arguable the most anticipated climax of the show (as far as importance, because if the wall was breached the whole army between kings, the current happenings in bravos, the grey joy/bolton/fight for the north saga etc. would all no have no importance any longer to the army of 100000 with giants easy peppered to crush them.) c) the scene between sam and the maister (his name has slipped my mind) was absolutely terrible, the acting was appalling, and in contrast the scene wasted so much valuable war time. D) the biggest for me was the dramatisation of the fact that there were less than 100 nights watch (who arguably less than 50% know how to fight from what the show has made out) and yet they seemed quite capable of fending off (i don't know how many) willdings from the south direction and still have a full lot of men along the top of the wall. and they then won... was very far fetched. i completely agree with what you have said about the story between sam and the wench they bore me to death! and e) the barrel of oil that got caught, simply the stupidest thing i have ever heard, i believe dragons, white walkers, giants and magic but that shit with the barrel was a load of crap and a pathetic attempt to make the battle seem more on a knifes edge.

and now finally the biggest thing for me is, they all agreed they should have sealed off the wall, now stupidly mance has attacked with half an army and the night watch have a chance to do so... what the fuck is jon snow doing? honestly?

i feel as if season 4 has this rushed, tuna can vibe that everything is so packed into it and not enough sustinance is coming out, it also feels very cheap.... I'm really frustrated about the fact i have seen the dragons about 2 times this whole season (and one of those times they turned against danerys for a moment while feeding which made me feel her character was so much less powerful than i previously thought), some of the focusing points for the show have been absolutely terrible, such as the conversation between denarys and missandei and the whole boring story plot with pod and the man/woman/thing. yet we've been deprived with more juicy plots that involve loved/hated characters like bran, and the brotherhood.
which brings me to my first of 3 big wtf moments, what the hell has happened to them, they came into the show and had what looked like little importance but then became a major story point, then became completely irrelevant again...

also where is robert baratheons bastard i really felt like his story needed to be touched on (at least once by now) it almost feels as if he is not in the show anymore?

also wtf happened to brans dog that fell through the snow or something (it was very unclear what even happened) does he not even look for it or??????

Re: “CHOW HOUND: Like family

It's always a treat to see the linguistics sins of City paper (see anything written by Frank). Is it too much to ask for editorial standards? True, this is Rochester--and your readers, well, not the most sophisticated. So, "panini" is plural "panino" is singular. What next, ordering one biscotti?

Re: “The 'war on coal' and the war on the planet

I overheard a conversation yesterday in which a young woman said she did not know why there was so much concern for the environment. She said most of the really bad stuff is predicted to happen in 50 years. She said she is not worried about the environment now and that she will be 75 years old in 50 years and will not care then either.

This pretty much sums up how and why we got to our current environmental situation and why things will not change soon enough or drastically enough to save and heal our environment.

Gwen Ifill's 2012 commencement speech at Bates College in Maine told graduates it was time to look up...look up from their computer screens and their phones and see what is really going on.

Always remember, Mr. Urbanski represents teachers in terms of their pay, benefits and working conditions. He does nothing to further the cause of better education for children.

Re: “RTA ticked over testing

A California state judge just today struck down teacher tenure and other laws designed to thwart accountability and reform. Parents, taxpayers, and the rest of the citizenry are fed up with the unions, and the tide at long last is starting to turn.

Re: “RTA ticked over testing

Union bosses hate reform and accountability. Until you decide to stop kowtowing to them — and Wisconsin has shown the way under Gov. Scott Walker's bold and brilliant leadership — even the most modest reform efforts will meet with defiance and subterfuge.
