7 SHOCKERS

Hits: 101

Not 1 Shocker of the Week, but 7—Count them and think about what they mean for the future

WPCNR The Sunday Bailey. News and comment by John F. Bailey. Sunday, May 22, 2022:

I have been producing and anchoring White Plains Week for 22 years.

When I was putting together Friday’s report after I taped the show with Westchester Talk Radio personality, John Marino. I realized it was perhaps a bellwether report  “that alters and illuminates our time,” as Walter Cronkite used to say on You Are There.

Viewers of the White Plains Week may recall when Jim Benerofe and Alex Philippidis began the program in 2001, we had a feature we called “The Shocker of the Week.”

It was supposed to represent what the three of us felt was the most unexpected important development of the week. We dwelt on the implications of it for the future.

Friday afternoon when I put together the “Teaser” on the website for the the program I realized the 7 Stories I covered were so astounding and potentially game changing, they were actually 7 Shockers of the Week which you can see Monday at 7 on FIOS Channel 45, and on  White Plains Optimum channel 45.

SHOCKER NUMBER 1 : THE “IMPROVED VOTING DISTRICTS.

This was the introduction of the new improved election districts by the Court of Appeals ordered he was a man not even from New York State,but a fellow from Carnegie-Mellon University in Pennsylvania. Judge Patrick McAlister tapped him to correct the lines of the districts the after all the first democrat-drawn districts were thrown out by the court of appeals as unconstitutional.

The new districts are based on population equalization, but ignore percentages of key demographic populations living in districts. the result is that minorities representation in the districts does not count.

It is the population bias applied to the newly withdraw districts that strips “the reality factor” from the districts, that every area is different in the kind of minority population that may be dominated by the majority population that may vote in their self interest to keep minorities (where they are). This has happened for decades in this  country especially in the south.

What these newly redrawn districts do under the guise of Judge McAllister’s opinion that the districts “even in the number Democratic and Republican Districts there are” (and unless the Court of Appeals or the legislature creates legislation to overrule and the new districts were approved at midnight by the Judge, the time of approval tells you how downright proud the Judge is of this Solomonesque decision.

What District lines do creating a series of majority-based  Congressional districts is in reality really hurts freshman congress persons Mondaire Jones and Jamall Bowman and veteran Congresspers like Carolyn Maloney and Jerald Nadler…

Saturday that fallout dropped like an Acme Anvil on Wil E Coyote.

Mondaire Jones, eloquent and action oriented Freshman decided to leave his District 17 District in Westchester (Nita Lowey;s former seat in Congress) to run in the New New York District 10. Paul Feiner, Town Supervisor of Greenburgh said how effective Mr. Jones was.

Now Westchester has lost him. Mr. Jones is running for a Manhattan-Brooklyn district against the highly ineffective politican Bill de Blazio. Nadler and Maloney, we do not know what they will do yet

I think we can agree this redistricting has been a disaster for the democrats, a group that in 15 years of controlling Albany have thrown out 2 governors from their own party, opened up the state for covid resurgence twice now, including this week’s surge that’s on track for another 3,000 infections this week– capped by this pathetic effort to insure democrat majorities that has blown up the public’s confidence, repressed representation and fairness by the legislature which lost control by being too partisan.

The state elections board decided to split the primaries: governor and state assembly june 28, state senate and  Congressional Primaries august 23.

Who will know what district they are voting in, who was and is their most recent representative, this will really test the staffs of every candidate and especially incumbents ensnared by the new district lines. The majority population in a district always is the key block of the most voters.

More than minorities in predominant white majority counties have to win against the color of their skin, race, income, and postoring of expertise by professional politicians who  appeal to the majority (white, wealthy, business-connected)want to educate only the majority and enact legislation only for the majority. How do I know that? That’s white majorities of congress have always done. Today is the result of “Do Nothing. Keep it like it is. Don’t aggravate backers. Reform just enough to make it look like progress,” government.

That is how the Confederacy grew to protect slave-owning. (How quickly we forget.). The Civil War cost 600,000 Americans their lives, still our most deadly conflict.And it is still being fought today.

Shock No. 2: Buffalo

we cannot overlook the latest horror in Buffalo One week ago. It was first shock of this white plains week and the worst:  10 innocent lives taken in a supermarket shooting and governor hochul is cracking down on violence and media

This was a shocker of the week that continues the malaise, melancholy and the indifference that our leaders in Washington have been very moot—they’re always moot, and get more mooted all the time.  This was outrageously a real reality television event. Is their any decency on the internet?  Governor Kathy Hochul was not moot on this she went after the internet websites that live-streamed the shootings as they took place.. Governor Hochul is investigating them which really raises the question of how free the press really is how free speech is, if you consider all websites “press” and all speech free to be spoken.

SHOCKER NUMBER 3: COVID

On last Monday, The center for disease control declared Westchester a high covid transmission county. According to the CDC specific Westchester degree of spread, “the county is seeing levels of cases of hospitalizations that are putting a strain on the local health care system.” they have us for 4,000 a week progression over 7 days. Which may as the Covid Daily shows today may “only” reach 3,600..the first time Westchester has decline in 8 weeks. When that is crowed about, you heard it first here.

SHOCKER NUMBER 4: BABY FORMULA SHUTDOWN

The baby formula shortage caused by shutdown of the Abbott Laboratories plant in Sturgis Michigan when traces of bactoria in formula consumed by 4 babies, two of whom died were found in the plant. That shutdown was not last week but it happened 3 months ago in February.

This goes to the heart of business irresponsibility today: no information, no warning to doctors no urgency to clean up by the company. Why? Nothing like that from Washington D.C. either until last Saturday.

Now they say shortages could last 12 weeks that’s into July.

Only one public official has done something about this and that was Paul Feiner Supervisor of Greenburgh who is organizing volunteers of interns, students to aid women or relatives who need formula to help locate it.

The county followed suit Saturday with listings of breast milk sources in the county. Mr. feiner just got started Monday and they are succeeding in helping connect women with formula.

SHOCK NO. 5: AMAZON DISCRIMINATES

More corporate bad acting. This exploitation of the meek and unlucky is typical of big greed, only exposed because two workers sued Big A.

Amazon has 29 business locations in New York state and employs 39,000 persons and two persons have reported them for discrimination because Amazon refused to honor their conditions as required by new york state law.

Governor Hochul said New York State Division of Human Rights has filed a complaint against Amazon, Inc. alleging the company engages in discrimination against pregnant workers and workers with disabilities by denying them reasonable accommodations in their jobs.

The division also alleges that Amazon has policies that force pregnant workers and workers with disabilities to take an unpaid leave of absence rather than allowing them to work with a reasonable accommodation. 

That’s firing in my book. What is this Leave of Absence Crap? Governor Hochul thinks so too! I heard no other politician  cry out to the Amazon management. Bad actors.

HOCHUL laid it out for corporations on this issue: “MY ADMINISTRATION WILL HOLD ANY EMPLOYER ACCOUNTABLE, REGARDLESS OF HOW BIG OR SMALL, IF THEY DO NOT TREAT THEIR WORKERS WITH THE DIGNITY AND RESPECT THEY DESERVE,” 

GOVERNOR HOCHUL SAID. “NEW YORK HAS THE STRONGEST WORKER PROTECTIONS

IN THE NATION AND WAS ONE OF THE FIRST TO HAVE PROTECTIONS FOR WORKERS WHO ARE PREGNANT AND THOSE WITH DISABILITIES. WORKING MEN AND WOMEN ARE THE BACKBONE OF NEW YORK AND WE WILL CONTINUE TO TAKE A STAND AGAINST ANY INJUSTICE THEY FACE.”  

That’s why you need unions to give the workers protection and power.

It is also another example of the effect of the Unsupreme Court ruling that class action suits on behalf a group of people were struck down.

Forcing individuals to sue is a tremendous advantage to corporations.

This is a shocker that belies the oppression of the corporatives that cause inflation, collapses wealth, creates unemployment when it suits their purposes has  access to unlimited credit (when student loans, oh they have to pay those don’t they) are protected by bankruptcy laws, yet foreclose at the drop of a hat, and can murder millions with a product and never go to jail. Business has only changed when people have had enough. They all go to the Uriah Heep School of Business.

It’s not what Big Coporate says it’s what they do. If they do not improve their “People Line” their Bottom line never improve.

They need to be good to their public. When will that happen? It has only happened when reporters, leaders and reformers took their lives in their hands and held the Goulds, the Pullmans, the Vanderbilts, the Rockefellers the “admired elite criminals” accountable.

SHOCKER NUMBER 6: FASNY, THE CITY AND GEDNEY ASSOCIATION GO TO COURT

It is the hearing that never ends and it goes back into court June 2 in Brooklyn New York USA.

Gedney Association is contending in the last piece of the Gedney lawsuit, that definition of an institution in a covenant attached to the 1925 deed on the sale of the old Gedney hotel still “goes and continues with the property when the future owner buys the property.

Why they did not drop it, is beyond belief, because the Appellate Court could take the position of the fact that the covenant is from a different time and set a 25 year expiration. Or it could uphold punishments of religious laws of archaic times or in this case say the covenants always stay with the property, giving ghosts control over a property. If they strike the covenant as being out of date, it opens up a ton of challenges to old zoning laws, “forever green” (remember the Toll Brothers property in my neighborhood what was supposed to be evergreen.) 

This is a shock that you would expose this again to a court judgment when the attrition of time has destroyed the original plan.

SHOCK NUMBER 7: FAIRER DISTRICTS? NO. MORE OPPRESSIVE

The resolution of the Democrat Plot to insure a Democratic majority in State Senate, State Assembly and Congressional offices has resulted in a constitutional fiaso that preserves the will of the majority. Because the lawmakers did not know the law. (Smacking forehead) Who knew they did not know the law?  You cannot make this up.

The way the new districts are being introduced is way short in transparency to the voters who now as of this writing have no idea of who representatives are who is running or where to vote, and what “hacks come latelies” are going to rise from the political graveyard and run again in the newly withdrawn districts.

The newly redrawn districts now though equal in population, are not equal in representation, one of the hallmarks of the old districts, no matter how disingenuous.

More than ever the voice of the Latino,the poor, the African-American, the Haitian immigrant, the Muslim, the Christian, the Orthodox Community has to vote, activate and coalesce with voters of similar sensitivity to move forward to persuade the majority to realize they are part of a minority the minority of oppressed humanity who must act more than they ever have before.

These are a lot of Shocks to endure and overcome but we cannot sit back and take the consequences.

WESTCHESTER STILL OVER 3,000. COVID INFECTIONS FRIDAY–539. COULD BE FIRST TIME IN 7 WEEKS WESTCHESTER HAS NOT INCREASED INFECTIONS

Hits: 721

THE WPCNR COVID LOGBOOK AND PRESS NOTES OF THE NEW YORK REGION INFECTIONS TRENDS FRIDAY.

WPCNR COVID DAILY. From NYS Covid Tracker. Observations & Analysis By John F. Bailey. May 22, 2022:

If Saturday Covid infections stay under 500 this will be the first time  in 7 weeks Westchester declines in new covid cases.

Meanwhile, New York City cases continue to rise at 4, 124 new cases a day.

Mid-Hudson counties other than Westchester continue on the rise with very limited testings being administererd.

Westchester reported 539 lab covid positives Friday on 5,704 tests a 9.5% infection rate. Orange County reported 209 on 2,302 tests (7.9% infections). Dutchess now lead Rockland County in new infections with 165 positives on 1,864 tests (9.2%), Rockland declined to 124 positives of 1,452 tests (7.9%). Putnam county, long least in fections moved up finding  51 positives in 505 tests a 10.7% infection rate. Ulster had 50, Sullivan 32.

The Mid-Hudson Region testest 13,407 Friday and had 1,171 people test positive—a 9% Positive Rate.

Reports on the 100,000  per continues to show how inept that rate us for the public to understand the rate of positives. You need to know the total population New York City Boroughs and each county to figure how many per day really you have.

On the other hand, with no mandated testing, only volunteer testing, the public is lead to believe that infections on low quanties “really aren’t so bad.”

This conflict of policies and providing results based on past how many more infections in the past we had compared to now, and breaking down positives into 100,000 population segments may be snazzy statistics (“Look mom, I know the populations of counties and can divide and multiply by 100,000 segments) is just a matter of  giving high numbers in a way that makes the infections appear low.

The result is it has made people confident the disease is down when it is way up.

New York City in “Lab tests” is infecting at 4,124 a day, that is 28,000 a week and next week that should hit 35,000. That is not good.

The Center for Disease Control in a series of  press releases yesterday, now says by their own convoluted statistics that New York City is way up in hospitalizations and that the new variant of the day discovered is way more contagious. 

This after a month of this new 100,000 population moving average  giving without the latest census figures. Now they say we’re “up” and need to mask indoors, and out.

There obviously is a need to test more in the schools, hot beds of spread.  (Officials are reluctant to do this.)

CDC consistently changing its mind on directives and trends has created a sense of recklessness by the public,  an “I’ll do what I want” attitude and  “make your own decision culture” of “coexistence with covid,” giving the latest renegade variants invitations to infect.

GREENBURGH TOWN SUPERVISOR REGRETS MONDAIRE JONES WILL NO LONGER REPRESENT GREENBURGH

Hits: 526

WPCNR THE LETTER TICKER. May 21, 2022:

To the Editor:

  I was disappointed to learn that Congressman Mondaire Jones will no longer represent Greenburgh in the United States Congress.

Thanks to redistricting, the Congressman has decided to run for his Congressional seat in a new district in NYC.

  Congressman Jones was an exceptional Representative who worked hard for our district. 

Besides fighting for progressive values – the Congressman helped the town of Greenburgh receive a one million dollar grant from the federal government to build a new sidewalk on Dobbs Ferry Road, an initiative that will make walking safer for pedestrians and residents who don’t have cars. We asked the Congressman for help and Congressman Jones not only tried. He succeeded in helping our community.

  During the Afghanistant crisis last year, the Congressman’s office did an amazing job helping a refugee I was trying to help escape the Taliban.

Unlike many elected officials who go thru the motions  making you think they are helping the Congressman did much more.

The Congressman’s office was in constant  contact with a military liaison who stayed in touch with the woman trying to escape -until she was on the plane in Kabul.

Thanks to the Congressman’s staff a second chance in life was given to the cousin of an Ossining resident who was escaping the Taliban.

  Congressman Jones has fought hard for infrastructure funding which is helping local governments. He has fought hard for progressive initiatives from health care reforms, helping the hungry and fighting to change Washington, bringing people together.

  I hope that Congressman Jones is successful in winning election to the Congress in a new district. I will be happy to spread the word to NYC residents who might not be familiar with what an excellent public servant the Congressman is.

Greenburgh Town Supervisor

THEN ALONG CAME JONES! TALL THIN JONES! MONDAIRE JONES WILL OPPOSE BILL DE BLASIO IN NEW YORK’S 10TH DISTRICT PRIMARY IN AUGUST. MONDAIRE JONES DECLARES CANDIDACY FOR NEWLY REDRAWN & “JUDGE-APPROVED” 10TH CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT IN LOWER MANHATTAN & BROOKLYN. JUDGE APPROVES REDRAWN CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICTS AS OF LAST NIGHT AT MIDNIGHT

MONDAIRE JONES CONGRESSMAN
(SECOND FROM RIGHT) WITH MAYOR TOM ROACH (FAR RIGHT}

AND SENATOR KIRSTEN GILLIBRAND (FAR LEFT)
PRESENTING $640,000 TO THE YWPCA IN WHITE PLAINS ,

Today, U.S. Representative Mondaire Jones (D-N.Y.) announced his reelection campaign for New York’s newly redrawn 10th Congressional District in New York City.

The new NY-10 includes parts of the East and West Village of Manhattan, “Brownstone Brooklyn”, Bourough Park. Former Mayor of New York City Bill de Blasio announced Friday he would run for the new District 10 seat because it “has no incumbent.” Now with Mondaire Jones coming into the contest, Mr. de Blasio has one.

Congressman Jones announced this morning.

The Washington Post reported that Judge Patrick McAllister approved the NY congressional and State Senate maps redrawn districts at midnight last night following along the lines redrawn by Carnegie-Mellon University (Pittsburgh,Pa) fellow Jonathan Cervas and presented last Monday

The Washington Post article this morning quoted the five-page order by Justice McAllister declaring the new boundaries “almost perfectly neutral” 15 safe Democratic seats, three safe Republican seats and eight competitive seats.

Congressman Jones in his announcement for the 10th district statement wrote:

“The final congressional maps were the result of partisan politics – drawn by an out-of-state, Republican court appointee who has shown utter disregard for cultural, social, and economic communities of interest. It is designed to reduce the number of Democrats serving New Yorkers in Congress. I have decided to run for another term in Congress in NY-10 to help Democrats maintain their representation in Congress.  “

New York’s 10th District is the birthplace of the LGBTQ+ rights movement. Since long before the Stonewall Uprising, queer people of color have sought refuge within its borders. I was proud to be elected as one of the first openly gay, Black members of Congress and I’m excited to make my case for why I’m the right person to lead this district forward and to continue my work in Congress to save our democracy from the threats of the far right. “

I helped pass the American Rescue Plan, and the Infrastructure, Investment and Jobs Act to deliver critical investments in infrastructure for New York City. I have also worked to increase affordable housing and have led the fight to protect the rights of LGBTQ+ individuals and women. I look forward to championing the needs of the 10th District in Congress.” 

The Congressional Primary Date is set for August 23, giving Jones and de Blasio plenty of time to acquire signatures if needed. It is unclear if they need to do that. It is also not a requirement that the persons running for the New District 10 need to reside in the district.

Congressman Jones sits on the House Committees on the Judiciary, Education and Labor, and Ethics. He is vice chair of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Courts, Intellectual Property, and the Internet where he has led the fight to expand the Supreme Court through his Judiciary Act. As a staunch advocate for democracy reform and voting rights, Congressman Jones co-authored and helped pass the Freedom to Vote: John R. Lewis Act in the House. He has authored and championed proposals for universal child care and lowering costs for working families through antitrust legislation. Recently, Congressman Jones delivered $8.2 million in community project funding for his constituents.

COUNTY ADVISORY DURING BABY FORMULA SHORTAGE

Hits: 311

 WPCNR HEALTH ADVISORY. From the Westchester County Department of Health. May 20, 2022:

The Westchester County Health Department is urging residents to never dilute/water down infant formula in an attempt to extend their supply, try to make formula at home, or use milk or toddler formula to feed infants. While the FDA has announced plans to ease the national shortage of baby formula, it will take at least another six to eight weeks before an ample supply of formula is available on store shelves again.

Westchester County Department of Health Commissioner Dr. Sherlita Amler said: “I particularly caution parents that while it may be tempting to water down formula to stretch it out, it is not safe to do so. This practice can have severe consequences beyond malnourishment. As a pediatrician, I have personally seen an infant who suffered seizures due to an electrolyte imbalance caused by diluted infant formula.”

The Federal Government has issued the following links on their webpage to help families feed their babies:

Manufacturer Hotlines:

  • Gerber’s MyGerber Baby Expert : reach a certified nutrition or lactation consultant by phone, text, Facebook Messenger, web chat, or video call, who can help you identify a similar formula that may be more readily available.
  • Abbott’s Consumer Hotline: call 1-800-986-8540
  • Abbott’s urgent product request line : ask your OBGYN or your infant’s pediatrician to submit an urgent product request by downloading and completing the form – PDF 
  • Reckitt’s Customer Service Line: call 1-800 BABY-123 (222-9123)

Community Resources

  • Locate your nearest Community Action Agency (CAA) . Your neighborhood CAA may be able to provide you with formula or connect you with local agencies that have formula in stock.
  • United Way’s 2-1-1 : dial 2–1-1 to be connected to a community resource specialist affiliated with United Way who may be able to help you identify food pantries and other charitable sources of local infant formula and baby food.
  • Feeding America : call your local food bank to ask whether they have infant formula and other supplies in stock.
  • Human Milk Banking Association of North America  (HMBANA): certain HMBANA-accredited milk banks are distributing donated breast milk to mothers in need; please note that some may require a prescription from a medical professional. Find an HMBANA-accredited milk bank .

WIC-Eligible Families

  • Contact your local WIC  office to identify or obtain additional sources of infant formula nearby.

General Guidance

  • Call your OBGYN or pediatrician to see if they have in-office samples or can suggest a similar formula that may be more readily available in stores and is nutritionally similar to your infant’s typical formula.
  • You should not water down formula, try to make formula at home, or use toddler formula to feed infants. Don’t discard formula unless it is expired or is part of the recall. Check your formula’s lot code  to see whether or not it was affected by the recall.
  • You can find more guidance from the American Academy of Pediatrics .

Additionally, locally the Health Department is notifying the public about the New York Milk Bank in Valhalla. The New York Milk Bank is the first comprehensive nonprofit milk bank based in New York State where breast milk is collected from carefully screened donors, pasteurized and distributed to infants in need. Women looking to donate breast milk can also reach out to the New York Milk Bank to provide excess breast milk to babies in need.

Clients of the Health Department’s WIC Program should contact their WIC clinic for support if their grocery store is out of their WIC infant formula. Yonkers WIC clients should call (914) 231-2510 and
Port Chester WIC clients should call (914) 813-7244.

The Department of Health will continue to monitor the situation and communicate with families. For more information, support and WIC eligibility, visit the Health Department’s website at https://health.westchestergov.com/
