Help Pass the JOLT Act & Retiree Visa for Canadian retirees

Here is a link to a petition that requires 5,000 signatures to help Pass the JOLT Act & Retiree Visa for Canadian retirees - it would enable Canadians to legally stay in the USA for 8 months instead of 6.  On March 23, 2014 they had 972 signatures, today (April 17, 2014) they have 1,221.  I feel we can get that number way up with the help of some of us here in Century Village.

http://www.change.org/en-CA/petitions/john-a-boehner-pass-the-jolt-act-retiree-visa-for-canadian-retirees

Please forward this link to people you know who would support it, the site has all the information as well as the petition.

Thank You!!

LED vs INCANDESCENT vs COMPACT FLUORESCENT - COMPARISON OF OUTPUT, POWER USAGE, LONGEVITY AND POLLUTION

-
LED vs. INCANDESCENT vs. COMPACT FLUORESCENT - COMPARISON OF OUTPUT AND POWER USAGE
-
Soon UCO will meet with FPL and try to save lots of unit owner money on our perimeter road security lighting. The power usage to operate some 150 cobra lights is over $13K per month. The following charts will make it clear - more light, less power, longer life, less pollution.

HEARTBLEED - A VARIANT MAN IN THE MIDDLE ATTACK - HOW TO TEST A SITES SAFETY

-


-
Heartbleed is a vulnerability in a security system known as Open SSL (Secure Socket Layer) Encryption. Stated simply, when you connect to a sites server, a hacker can re-direct the link to himself and send a pulse (called a heartbeat), causing the server to dump a chunk of data about you, which the hacker can capture. In technical terms, the bug is know as a "Buffer Over-Read" flaw, due to a lack of  buffer boundary, coding which is the code that must be fixed.
-
The purpose of this Post is not to confuse, but rather to offer a method to test if the Sites to which you connect have had this critical flaw fixed. Below, are some sites where you may test if this has been done. As an example, let's say that you use Gmail. simply go to one of the Sites listed below and enter the string:

GMAIL.COM
-
Continue below.








https://lastpass.com/heartbleed/
-
Enter a URL or a hostname to test the server for CVE-2014-0160.
 

All good, Gmail.com seems fixed or unaffected!

If you get this message; CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD.
-
Now, let's try COMCAST.NET
.....................................
Enter a URL or a hostname to test the server for CVE-2014-0160.
 

Uh-oh, something went wrong:dial tcp 69.252.80.75:443: i/o timeout 
Check what it means at the FAQ.
It might mean that the server is safe, we just can't be 100% sure!

=
Clearly, this is not a clean response, so, while you might change your password, keep checking back until you get a clean response for the COMCAST.NET Site, and then change your password again.
-
I used the first Site on the list of four, you might wish to try another, or all four to check for consistency.
-
Please take the time to do this little task, as this is a serious bug, and you want to be sure your passwords and data are safe.

Banned from The Malcontent Blog!

The blog admisistratorApril 11, 2014 at 1:00 PM
Dear Grace,
Since you do not contribute any substantial value to this blog and because you expect us to post erroneous information, you are hereby banned. Please post your misinformation on David's blog. I am sure you will be welcome there.
Do I feel bad that I am banned from posting truths on the Malcontent Blog, absolutely not.  Those poor individuals that write such tripe on their blog. They would not know the truth if it hit them in the face!

Response to Olga's Rant On the Other Blog

I wrote a similar response to Olga's rant on the Goose and Gander. Of course it was not printed. Too truthful for them. The reason that Dorothy Tetro could not be nominated for Treasurer was that she was no longer a resident of the village and by the by laws could not be our treasurer. Why would we want to have a treasurer who does not live here handling our money??

UCO 2014 ELECTION RESULTS - FULL DOCUMENT SCAN - TO MEASURE IS TO KNOW

-
UCO is in receipt of a request for all data related to the election of March 7, 2014. The requestors are Mr. Solomon, Ms. Wolkenstein, Mr. Karpf and Mr. Grossman. They wish to verify the veracity of the results. This plants a seed in the body politic of some sort of impropriety, which is absurd. So, in the interest of full transparency, I am herewith releasing to all interested parties every scrap of paper generated in the March 7, 2014 UCO election. The data was scanned to the UCO database and then uploaded to Google Drive. The scanning process was video taped, and observed. The requestors who actually ran in the election were offered the opportunity to be observers of the process and refused.
-
So, all of you who doubt the veracity of your UCO election, click on the following URL and download all 396 pages, and do the analysis - To measure is to know:

Be patient, this is a big download

CV MESSENGER CLUB - HOW DID THEY GET YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS - NOT FROM UCO

-
Well, it would appear that the CV Unity and law suit committee is now sending out Emails to CV Residents.
Some folks have asked me if I released your Email addresses, the answer is absolutely not, nor will I do so!!!
-
So where did they get your Email addresses? Following is the expanded header from the Email they sent to me:
-
from: The Century Village Messenger Club thecvmessinger@gmail.com
reply-to: thecvmessinger@gmail.com
to: ucopresident@gmail.com
date: Fri, Mar 28, 2014 at 3:26 PM
subject: April 2 Town Hall Meeting
mailed-by: in.constantcontact.com
signed-by: auth.ccsend.com
-

The message clearly comes from
"thecvmessinger@gmail.com" 
(note the misspelling)

-

BUT, note carefully, that it is mailed
by a well known marketing firm:

"in.constantcontact.com"
It is fair to conclude, that,
that is where they
 purchased our Email addresses.

-

So, what to do if you don't want to
receive these Emails; simple:
-
1) Block the Email address
2) Designate the Email as SPAM
3) Notify "in.constantcontact.com" that these messages 
constitute abuse.

CHUTZPAH WITH A CAPITAL "C" - MESSENGER CLUB SOLICITS $20,000.00 TO ENABLE SELF-SUIT

-
It is important to understand at the outset that I was not present at yesterdays meeting of the CV Messenger Club, so what I have to say is second hand.
-
The essence of what I have been told, is that the organizers are requesting that Associations contribute funding to enable what is in essence a suit against themselves. The amount sought initially is reported to be $20,000.00!!!
-
If you were present at this meeting, please comment on what happened in the Comment stream.

DO NOT FEED WILDLIFE

I just got back from the bridge between Stratford and Chatham.  There is a sign posted not to feed the wildlife.  I stopped a couple feeding the ducks and pointed to the sign.  They said they couldn't understand because they have been watching people feed the birds all week.  I explained to them that they are doing more harm to the birds than good and making them depend on us for food.  Also, these birds cross the street and cause traffic problems that can also harm them.  For those of you out there, if you love animals like I do, please let them fend for themselves as nature attended them to.

Paving

The other blog shows pictures of the road work after the paving. We had a meeting with the paving company before it was a go. We were told that unless they went and dug up old paving the cracks in the road would appear where they were from underneath. To make sure of no cracks coming back it would have cost much more. The delegates votes for cheap, as usual, therefore the cracks in the road. I wrote a similar blur on the other blog but they probably won't print it, therefore, the duplicate.

AMR (Our Ambulance Service)

Should you receive a statement for your portion of charges, associated with the above, I would call
their 800 number and advise them, that we in CV West Palm, have a contract thru UCO, that each
Owner pays into monthly..As one who recently was in this position, after having my health care
provider pay their portion, I was sent a statement reflecting the balance.  I immediately called, informing
them of our agreement and the matter to date has been closed.
In conclusion, question any statements you may receive regarding this issue.  Do not immediately
rush to pay....

Esther Sutofsky needs to study up on Florida's Sunshine Law: it doesn't apply to condos, only goverment agecies. From MyFloridaLegal.com, the state attorney general's website:

  • What is the Sunshine Law?
    Florida's Government-in-the-Sunshine law provides a right of access to governmental proceedings at both the state and local levels. It applies to any gathering of two or more members of the same board to discuss some matter which will foresee ably come before that board for action. There is also a constitutionally guaranteed right of access. Virtually all state and local collegial public bodies are covered by the open meetings requirements with the exception of the judiciary and the state Legislature which has its own constitutional provision relating to access.

Esther volunteering at UCO

If Esther wishes to volunteer at UCO and you do not take her up on it, can she sue or cause any other
kind of problems.  Will the nightmare EVER stop?

SUTOFSKY DEMANDS ELECTIONS RECORDS - I WONDER WHY

-
The following is published without comment.
-
-
The post above drew the following Email from Ms. Sutofsky,
and I'm the one whose nasty?????
-

Gerry and Esther Sutofsky

12:56 PM (1 hour ago)
to me
 
David, you continue to amaze me. The request for the records is a simple request with no nefarious reasons, just a
post election analysis for my own information and enlightenment. For you to ascribe a nasty meaning tells me you are going to continue the nastiness of the election and encourage your followers as well. I do not understand your reasoning. Why continue to divide the Village with hate and insinuations? Why not try to unite everyone, invite all under the umbrella. I guess this tells me what kind of reception I will get when I hand in my volunteer forms for UCO committees.
How sad it is that you continue on this way. How sad for the Village and how sad for you personally that you think you must be nasty in order to survive.

Can you believe the answer I got from Gary Olman? Who says I have to post all the garbage you may post?

Can you believe the answer I got from Gary Olman?

Hey Gary, why didn't you post my reply, you did not like my correcting your arithmetic? The difference in the election was 72 votes ! I thought this was an open forum
Okay you are right on the vote.
Who says I have to post all the garbage you may post?

This is my answer to Gary, I quote from his Blog: I thought I was “polite and civil”
