Trump is Headed to NYC After First 100 Days are Over

President Trump made an announcement Friday that his trips to New York City were costing the taxpayers too much money. The extra security costs over $300,000 in overtime police officers every weekend he goes to NYC with several streets requiring to be closed around Trump Tower.


He will be going on Thursday as planned. He has been accused of not telling the truth, and Buzzfeed has found one false statement every day for the first 100 days Trump was in office.


Experts call some of them “bullshit” because the statements never meant to get near the truth. I.F. Stone once wrote, “All governments lie,” but some say Trump has gone beyond other presidents in this area. Some say he has created a crisis of credibility. What do you think?


Here are six of the 100 lies that Buzzfeed attributes to Trump and his aides.


1) Lie – “I wasn’t a fan of invading Iraq; but, we got out wrong.” Truth – In 2002, Trump said he supported invading Iraq.

2) Lie – “This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, both in person and around the globe.” Truth – Barack Obama’s inauguration in 2009 was larger according to photos.

3) Trump claimed that 3 to 5 million “illegals” voted in the 2016 election, which cost him the popular vote. Truth – The National Association of Secretaries of State found no evidence to support voter fraud claims.

4) Sean Spicer reported that “Trump won the election with 306 electoral votes, the most since any Republican since Reagan.” Truth – George H.W. Bush received 426 electoral votes in 1988.

5) Lie – “The Obama Administration agreed to take thousands of illegal immigrants from Australia.” Truth – The U.S. accepted 1,250, not thousands, from Australian custody.

6) Lie – “I’m very much opposed to sanctuary cities. They breed crime.” Truth –

Researchers deny any evidence showing there is more crime in sanctuary cities, compared to non-sanctuary cities.


Apparently, there are 94 more statements made from President Trump and the Trump Administration, but, since all governments are known to lie, the question is “Are these misstatements tainting the presidential office by creating shame and incredibility? It’s up to you as a discerning citizen and voter in the United States of America.


Avaaz: United Global Citizens Into A Massive Collective Force For Good

Uniting citizens to engage in global campaigns is where Avazz excels; the civic organization tackles a broad range of causes. By using the Internet, Avazz reaches ordinary people who care about an issue, such as climate change, but who do not consider themselves activists. Online petitions, according to Avazz, do make a difference, as do email campaigns, demonstrations and media campaigns because they combine the voices of people into a collective force that politicians who are sensitive to the public’s viewpoints cannot ignore.

With a single team of activists, Avaaz champions numerous causes at the same time, with members voting on which issues should receive priority. Avaaz has supported everything from saving the Great Barrier Reef to keeping the Internet free of government censorship. In the past, the majority of citizens, between work, school and home life, only had time to support one cause. Today, Avaaz makes it easy for an individual to support any number of worthy causes; all it takes is signing an online petition, making a small donation or sharing one of Avaaz’s causes on Facebook. Avaaz’s type of activism, supported entirely by member’s donations, which depends on Internet engagement and creative advertising in traditional media, appeals to liberals and idealists who want to get involves, but lack the resources to attend a demonstration in another city or commit to weekly in-person meetings.

Avaaz mobilizes their supporters to come together and donate to countries hit by natural disasters as well. Since the organization bypasses traditional channels and sends the money, food and medical supplies directly where they are needed, more aid reaches the population affected by the disaster.

New York City Grioler Club Hosts Exhibition On Financial Securities

Contributing writer to Forbes Magazine, Jonathan Keats recently covered an exhibition that is hosted by the Grolier Club in New York City. The Groiler Club was created in 1884 and named after Frenchman Jean Grolier, who was a great collector of books. The mission of the Grolier Club was to collect and foster the appreciation of books and other printed materials. You can find the Grolier Club at 47 East 60th Street, New York, NY 10022. The exhibition halls are open from 10 A.M to 5 P.M. Mondays to Saturdays.


Writing for Forbes Magazine, Jonathan Keats describes the latest exhibition at the Grolier Club as being a testament to the fine art of engraving and its evolution throughout American history. Engraving as covered at this New York City exhibition refers to security engraving to ensure authenticity of bank notes, stock certificates and other financial documents. The exhibition at the Grolier Club shows stock certificates and their engravings that date all the way back from the 19th century to the modern era.


It is interesting to note that before the federal government began taking over the matter of engraving paper money, most money and other financial certificates were engraved by skilled artists. Seals varied tremendously and most were works of art that would impress people today. The Grolier exhibition on engraving in banknotes and stocks certificates shows that engravings eventually evolved from a security feature to prevent counterfeiting to a form of advertisement as well.


In case you are wondering what an engraving is, it is similar to a seal. It can be said to be a seal of authenticity that showed that the document was in fact an original or legit. Today we have the Federal Bureau of Engraving and Printing that engraves money. Stock certificates continue to have an engraving to this day. This is because there is a rule at the New York Stock Exchange that says that all stock certificates must feature an original engraving for that company. The rule is hundreds of years old, yet it still remains part of the stock market world today.


If you are interested in the evolution of bank notes and stock certificates, then it is a good idea to check out the Grolier Club exhibition. You will learn some interesting history and view the evolution of engraving through the centuries by looking at historic bank notes and stock certificates.


Inequality in Men’s and Women’s Salaries Still Shows a Significant Difference in NYC

The fight for the equality of salaries for men and women in the workplace goes on. In New York City, if you are women, you are paid approximately $6,600 less than a man at a comparable position: this is 2017.


According to this recent study by the Pew Research Center, more than half of men in the United States see no sexism in the culture, but two-thirds of the women say that because of this misconception, there are more obstacles than ever when looking for equality. In education, women outnumber men in the universities in graduate degrees, and yet in the workplace, gender and race pay gaps definitely exist.


The study shows that New York state has the narrowest gap in men and women’s paycheck in the country. It showed that a woman makes 87 percent of the man’s earnings, and if the same rate continues, as it has since 1960, this gender gap will not close until 2049. These women are less likely to own businesses, and most are women of color.


If a working woman and man’s salary were equal, in New York there would be an increase of $29.6 billion to the state’s economy. Yes, billion and if NYC’s working women were paid an equal salary as men at the same age as men, the same level of education, and who works a comparable number of hours, the study showed that the poverty rate for women and their families would decrease from 27 to 13 percent or over half.


There is a glimmer of hope in NYC because the millennial generations have shown a slight increase for women in the age group of 16-34. Their earnings, on the average, were $38,319 compared to $37,542 for men in the same age group. The study suggests that this discrepancy is because 46 percent of women to age 34 have earned a bachelor’s degree or higher, compared with 37 percent of men the same ages. This defies the statistics.


There are signs of progress in closing this gender and racial gap in NYC, and one substantial legislation was an executive order to eliminate salary history as a requirement on resumes and job applications. Progress will be shown in the results.

Major Track Work Scheduled for Penn Station

Penn Station, the major transportation hub that is located in Midtown Manhattan and which has been the source of much frustration in the past month due to overturned trains and broken tracks, is likely to experience some significant delays this year. Amtrack announced that there there will be massive track work undertaken on the tunnels that go under the Hudson river which will lead to massive delays for NJ Transit, the LIRR, and Amtrak trains.


April has experienced nine days of massive delays during the month and the frustration for travelers is reaching a fever pitch with massive cancellations. Amtrak owns Penn Station and is responsible for the repair work that is much needed. Penn Station has undergone several different series of repairs over the years with the most memorable being the addition of MSG on top of the station.


The repairs that are undertaken in recent weeks after broken switches, electrical problems, and the derailed trains, are more stop gaps that are only temporary solutions to problems in the Penn Station train hub. More permanent repair work is needed to keep the trains in operation efficiently over the future years with expected increases in the traffic in the station.


Riders in Penn Station have been increasingly frustrated with the delays due to the archaic infrastructure with Governor Andrew Cuomo recently chiming in stating that if the station were in control of the New York State Government and not Amtrak the station would be in better repair. The LIRR recently threatened to sue Amtrak for the poor state of the tunnels that the LIRR will need to operate in.


The repair work is likely to significantly disrupt train activity. As many as ten tracks in Penn Station may be taken over with the ongoing repairs that is likely to be scheduled later in 2017. The length of time that these repairs will take are expected to be significant, but the plans have not been made public yet. Amtrak is expected to announce the plans of the repair work this week to both the LIRR and NJ Transit and they will have the ability to issue responses to these plans and possibly modify the plans.


Riders won’t have much of an option however and are likely to be stuck with more significant delays as a result of these scheduled repairs. Things are about to get worse rather than better in the New York’s most crowded transportation hub.

Felipe Montoro Jens, Seeking Brazil Infrastructural Improvements

The Brazilian government is anticipating giving concessions to organizations who show proactivity in Brazil. They will give extra subsidizing to foundations that extend resources, take the weight off of the state, enhance personal satisfaction, and the economy. Felipe Montoro Jens weighs in on this mission and has expressed that it will give Brazilian society some reprieve.

His reputation demonstrates a solid awareness of other’s expectations to the betterment of society; with his direction, water improvements in Brazil are nearly ensured to succeed. He has sat on multiple boards and even served in the public sector. He has experience in both sides of the business of infrastructure improvement which provides him a rare insight.


Felipe Montoro Jens started working on infrastructure as a member of the Board of Directors for Concesionaria Trasvase Olmos S.A. where he oversaw the implementation of water irrigation systems in Brazil. The project was successful under his leadership. His other experiences in the private sector are astounding. Jens has voiced his masterful opinion that the establishment of Brazil’s clean water framework, and conceivable redesigns, are primary to upgrading life in Brazil. Jens has communicated that the shortage of clean water is the critical driver of public funding for state projects. Banks and loan specialists are willing to provide resources for infrastructure projects provided they receive government concessions.

The president said that, at this moment, Brazil requires the investigation of concession contracts so that there is transparency in the way disbursements are arranged and executed. Felipe Montoro Jens supports this idea and agrees that companies must be responsible in the way contracts are handled. He can be viewed as a philanthropist and discerning businessman
