GLOUCESTER CITY, NJ (May 31, 2022)--The DEP is increasing the Local Government Clean Communities Grants by $700,000 over prior years. But, as these current photos show taken in Gloucester City, all the money in the world will not do a thing if the residents and local government don't do their part in keeping the city free of the trash. People are still using the field across from the Cold Springs School, Gloucester City to dump their trash. Likewise, Water Street, (below) also in Gloucester City, has become a favorite site for people to dump concrete and other building materials.

How Safe is the Water in Gloucester City?

By Gloucester City Councilman-at-large Derek Timm Fact-Checking: The Water in Gloucester City GLOUCESTER CITY, NJ--Gloucester City has one of the newest water processing and treatment plants in South Jersey. With a state-of-the-art filtration system in place and on-site laboratory testing done regularly, the water produced here shows no trace of readily readable toxins or chemicals leaving the facility after the treatment. Many factors including the age of supply lines, pipes, and conditions in your home or business regarding the purity level coming out of your faucet can vary, but rest assured drinking tap water is possibly safer than sticking your tongue out during a rainstorm. Rainwater can carry bacteria, parasites, viruses, and chemicals that could make you sick, and it has been linked to disease outbreaks. As much as 40% of bottled water sold in stores actually comes directly from municipal tap water. And while tap water is regulated by... Read more →

The Little-Known Benefits a Virtual Assistant Can Bring: What You Should Know

We are all somewhat familiar with the advantages of a virtual assistant, and you may even have thought of hiring one for yourself. We know, for instance, that we can assign repetitive duties to them or assign administrative tasks that they will often do better, anyway, such as answering calls and responding to emails or entering data. We are also aware that they can take care of other things, such as errands and what-not. But a virtual assistant is more than that; they can reduce your expenses, and they can even have better skills than yours or your staff, such as digital marketing or IT. In addition, there are many other things a virtual assistant can bring to the table. So what are these? Here are the little-known benefits a virtual assistant can bring: what you should know.

Impacts of Bitcoin Mining in Colorado

Bitcoin mining is a process of verifying and adding new transaction records to the Bitcoin public ledger. The public ledger is called the blockchain. Miners are rewarded with newly created bitcoins, as well as fees paid by users for faster transaction processing. Visit https://bitcodeprime.site/ for further information. Bitcoin mining has come under fire recently due to its high energy consumption and resulting carbon footprint. A single bitcoin transaction can require the same amount of electricity as an average American home uses in a day. As more people begin to use bitcoin, the demand for energy increases. The majority of the world's bitcoin mining takes place in China, where electricity is cheap and abundant. However, Colorado is home to one of the largest bitcoin mines in North America. The mine is located in a former coal-fired power plant. The bitcoin mine in Colorado is estimated to consume around 2.5 megawatts of... Read more →


How to find work as a freelance independent contractor

If you're looking for freelance work, this article will go over the distinctions between employees and independent contractors, the basic responsibilities of an independent contractor, and where to find them. This article, https://workee.net/blog/A-guide-on-independent-contractor-jobs, gives you a better idea of getting independent contractor jobs. But in the meantime, here are a few differences between independent contractors to on-site employees. Differences between independent contractors to on-site employees Employers prefer independent contractors to on-site employees because this option is less expensive than hiring new employees. Paying independent contractors is way less than paying in-house workers. Also, employees are entitled to employee benefits, whereas independent contractors are paid only for the work they complete. Another reason some employers prefer to hire some or all of their employees as independent contractors are because companies need to invest in their in-house workers to keep them engaged. On the other hand, independent contractors have to work to... Read more →

Dads’ Resource Center Offers Fathers’ Day Survival Tips for Single Fathers

STATE COLLEGE, Pennsylvania – (May 24, 2022) – According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are around 2 million single father's in the country. Due to the way that the family court, county and social service systems operate fathers are often not allowed to spend as much time with their children as they would like following a separation or divorce. This includes Father’s Day. "Father’s Day can be brutally painful for noncustodial fathers”, said Dads’ Resource Center Executive Director Jeffrey Steiner. “Many do not even get the opportunity to be with their children for Father’s Day. For those that do, it can be bittersweet as they are able to cherish some time with their sons and daughters, while also being reminded of all that they are missing out on and how unnecessary and hurtful the custody battle is to them and their children.” It is not unusual for a noncustodial...

FTC's Tips: Dealing With Weather Emergencies

Colleen Tressler May 25, 2022 Threats from hurricanes don’t come just from wind and rain, storm surges, flooding and rip currents, or tornadoes and landslides. Hurricane-related threats also come in the form of scammers who use those weather emergencies to cheat people. Some of the most common weather-related frauds and scams include people who promise to help you with clean-up or repairs, but disappear with your money; those who pretend to be FEMA or other government agencies; people who promise you a job – if only you pay to get it; and those who promise you a place to rent – if only you wire them the money to get the place sight unseen. The FTC’s site, Dealing with Weather Emergencies, has practical ideas to help you get ready for, deal with, and recover from a weather emergency.

Rep. Norcross Remarks on Recent Shootings

It’s been one of those weeks. 14 days ago, a racist gunman went into a Buffalo supermarket and murdered 10 Black Americans. Now we have the massacre in Uvalde, TX—19 children and two teachers were slaughtered in an elementary school. This shouldn't keep happening. 91% of Democrats and 74% of Republicans want Congress to act on gun safety, but legislation I helped pass in the House is collecting dust in the U.S. Senate as I type this. As our nation mourns, I want to be upfront with you about where I stand on gun safety. Here’s where I am: I cosponsored the Assault Weapons Ban (HR 1808) to regulate assault weapons. I twice co-sponsored the Bipartisan Background Checks Act (HR 8) to ensure people with criminal records, violent pasts, and mental instability could not buy deadly firearms. I strongly opposed the Concealed Carry Permit Reciprocity Act (HR 38) which would... Read more →


THE PLOT AGAINST THE PRESIDENT (WATCH)

image from The Plot Against The President The PLOT AGAINST THE PRESIDENT --The daughter of a legendary right-wing Hollywood filmmaker calmly documents an all-American cliffhanger. John Milius made the conservative action-movie favorite Red Dawn. Released in 1984, it’s famous for Harry Dean Stanton’s patriarch, imprisoned during a Soviet takeover of CNBNews graphic file America, shouting to his sons, “Avenge me!” But Milius’s daughter Amanda Milius may have outshone her father with her documentary The Plot Against the President, which details a real-life government coup attempt with less hysteria than Red Dawn — yet it’s scarier. The movie lines up House Intelligence Committee member Devin Nunes, his assistants Kash Patel and Jack Langer, and politicians Richard Grenell, K. T. McFarland, and Lee Zeldin, who opposed the Beltway treachery. Milius features interviews with conservative political commentators from John Solomon, Sebastian Gorka, Edward Luttwak, Tom Fitton, Jack Posobiec, Michael Anton, Raheem Kassam, and... Read more →
