Re: “Ginna's future in jeopardy

Although isn't a large plant, it's made huge contributions to clean, safe and most important reliable base load electricity. Electric systems must be balanced in terms of supply and demand. NY refuses to install higher voltage transmission lines which would help the situation. As more and more coal and oil plants are taken off-line system balance shifts. The nations transmission infrastructure is old and weak. We can't address these issues piecemeal, we need a national energy policy that takes advantage of all sorts of generation. We have very significant hydro resources up-state but most of that goes to NYC and Long Island. Gas turbines are cheap and easy to operate, but sourcing natural gas by hydrofracking if fraught with significant risks. Cuomo and his dad hate nuclear and fail to recognize how vital the plants in NY are. Every elected official wants to kick the can down the road. Sooner or later we will have a power crisis. High lever nuclear waste (spent fuel) is NOT a technical problem, it's been solved at Yucca mountain. It's a political problem. Elected officials and the public don't want to take the time to learn about the issue. In my opinion based on more than 20 years in the nuclear industry, we need more nukes, not less. Natural gas should be used to heat homes not generate electricity. Oil should be used for transportation and the petrochemical industry. Nukes can make electricity from uranium and we could power cars and railroads with the power they produce. We need educated, long term strategic thinking to move forward.

Re: “Film Review: "The Boxtrolls"

We brought our 3 1/2 year old to this. Unfortunately we purchased the 3D version. For her 1st 3D she did great, but I agree, I don't think we really needed to see the film in this format. She did enjoy the movie as did I.

Re: “Rochester's bike boulevard experiment

Not to mention (Rochester makes greats pains not to) bike boulevards will look nice on Climate Change adaptation strategies.

Getting more folks out of their gas guzzlers so they can bike more safely through our city will reduces greenhouse gas emissions. The EPA say 27% of our greenhouse gases come from transportation.

But in Rochester there seems to be a concerted effort to disconnect active transportation (walking and bicycling) from what is stated in all climate studies and even local transportation studies, that more active transportation is a real strategy for addressing Climate Change.

Instead of the city educating the public on Climate Change, as is their responsibility (especially under the state’s Climate Smart Communities program, they seem terrified of doing so.

Why in Monroe County and in the City of Rochester is Climate Change so not being communicated to the public?

Why are all Rochester’s Climate Change efforts being conducted behind closed doors, instead of in the public, where the public absolutely needs to know what their government is doing to adapt to Climate Change?

Re: “Climate change: Lowering temperatures at RCSD

OMG-more studies and even a task force. A few good teachers, principals and parents along with representative students can come up with more productive remedies in a week. Community groups need not get involved. They often distract from honest solutions. If they really wanted to be a part of the solution they would be working in the hallways and classrooms.

The simple fact is that discipline is just one just one element of a broader student management issue and student management is a mess because the broader systems themselves are chaotic. Any effective system, process, policy, etc., is dependent upon universal understanding and consistent enforcement. This is a fact. All successful organizations ensure that their employees and stakeholders understand the expectations and how these are enforced. The RCSD does a pitiful job at this.

The district gives the schools one day to prepare before school opens-ONE DAY! The girl scouts spend more time getting their candy sellers prepared. Study on Garth.

Re: “Siena Poll puts Funke well ahead of O'Brien in Senate race

The problem with O'Brien is that he has yet to introduce himself again to voters. Yeah, he's a state senator. BIG deal. Most people in Rochester barely know who the governor is and routinely have no clue who's their congressional representative (everyone ALWAYS has assumed it's Slaughter, even before her redistricting, when Monroe County was carved into four separate districts).
Funke has the advantage b/c he's a well-known media "personality", whereas O'Brien who is a good decent man, is being tagged as an "Albany politician". The response to that should be: News flash, when you are in the state legislature, it meets in Albany. And when you are elected to political office, you're a politician. If you want to serve people, go wait on the elderly at a retirement home. When you are in politics, you are a politician. O'Brien was the county Democratic chairman for two years, a county legislator for eight years (the legislative minority leader for the last two years) and a state senator for the last 22 months. O'Brien should be re-elected b/c he deserves it.

Re: “Siena Poll puts Funke well ahead of O'Brien in Senate race

My I offer an opinion... O'Brien will be getting my vote because he has specifically identified where he stands on all the issues in his district. O'Brien has experience and a track record. Funke has no track record; has never been involved in Govt'; was chosen by his party because he has a track record in broadcasting without any experience in Govt' policy or planning. Funke may win but he has no experience. So ask yourself one question...do you want experience or popularity. I'll take O'Brien's experience.

"Funke does not show up at debates, therefore I conclude he does not respect voters"

Ted O'Brien votes for (rubber stamps) Cuomo's 'NY SAFE ACT' no input from constituents and no debate or discussion. He's the one who does not respect the voters. Pack your bags and clean out your desk, Ted!

Re: “Siena Poll puts Funke well ahead of O'Brien in Senate race

Voters should ask Funke and Reilich why their candidates routinely blow off debates and only go to friendly media outlets (usually far right) where they'll be tossed softball questions with no tough follow-ups.

What are they afraid of?

Does Maggie know about the SC nuclear power plant's cost overrun of $1 BILLION dollars. That is not the cost of construction...that is just the cost overrun. Does that seem cost-effective?

Re: “Siena Poll puts Funke well ahead of O'Brien in Senate race

Funke does not show up at debates, therefore I conclude he does not respect voters. Or he does not trust voters to vote after they learned about him.

He has no plan to curtail gun violence. He does not believe a woman has a right to choice in health care. Funke is the wrong candidate.

Vote for O'Brien.

Re: “Siena Poll puts Funke well ahead of O'Brien in Senate race

Module and Romeo may not like the results reported by Siena today, but they are likely fairly accurate. One only has to go back to the Slaughter/Brooks contest two years ago, where the vote split was only about 3% different than the poll, so within the margin of error. It is no surprise that Dems favor O'Brien and Reps favor Funke. The big surprise is how much Independents favor Funke. O'Brien barely won in 2012, when Obama was on the ticket and was fairly popular. This year, he is missing. Most people in the poll seem to have liked the results of having the Reps, with a small group of Dem's, provide a balance to the left wing tilt of the Assembly. My guess is that O'Brien should dust off his resume, as he is likely to be without a job in January.

Re: “Amphipolis tomb could intensify Greece-Macedonia feud

@Reality check

Your referral to 'Turkish Christians' I assume is alluding to the Christian population of Turkey WHO were in the main descendants of ancient Ionian Greeks (but also included Romans) who had colonised the coastal regions of Asia Minor (modern Turkey) from 900 BC onwards - that is, 2000 years before the Turks arrived.
As for 'DNA', here has never been any "DNA analysis" as you put it, relating modern Slavs of the 'Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) with the ancient Greek tribe of Macedonians of Alexander the Great. That is patently absurd.
