Cleveland Plain Dealer Reports, On-Line ONLY - Tremont West Development Corp. development director charged with assault

Submitted by Norm Roulet on Fri, 08/27/2010 - 20:26.

I'll preface any praise of "Tremont West Development Corp. development director charged with assault" - coverage in the Plain Dealer of the assault of Guy Templeton Black, by Sammy Catania - by posting reporter Mark Gillespie's comment on his own blog about his own work - Mark Gillispie, The Plain Dealer - August 27, 2010 at 1:13PM - "xxoo: Thanks for commenting. I understand your concern, but this is not a news article that will appear in the print edition of The Plain Dealer. It is an item that has been posted solely to my Inside Cleveland Hall blog. Reporters who have blogs use them to post items that might not hold much interest to our broader readership but might have relevance to some Cleveland.com readers. That's the beauty of the digital age. Thanks again for reading and commenting".

Mark is responding to a TROLL on Cleveland.com that set up an account to post "xxoo August 27, 2010 at 1:01PM - So much ado about nothing. Is this really worthy of a news article - or is this just a gossip column?"

That is what is pathetic about poor use of technology in the digital age... it allows corporations and special interests to use TROLL accounts places like Cleveland.com to post anonymous diversions of public knowledge from fact to fiction, and to temper public response to news that is in fact deserving of outrage.

Facts prove it is unsafe to live near the Arcelor/Mittal Cleveland Works steel mill, and citizens of Northeast Ohio have reasons to be concerned about 100s of other major toxic pollution point sources in the greater Cleveland area, yet our regional pollution monitoring has been broken since 2003, and is broken today, and citizens and the media do not care at all. How is it possible the people living in one of them most polluted places in America do not care about public health - about their own health? How did citizens here become such nihilists?

Northeast Ohioans must rise up from metal and soot ashes still being spewed upon us by excessively polluting toxic industrial forces that have corrupted local politics and destroyed the region and the lives of those living here... yet leaders and citizens here do not care.

Dear Leaders of University Circle Institutions,

Did you or a representative of your institution attend the EPA public hearing on the Medical Center Company's request to renew their steam plant operating permit Tuesday evening August 10th at the MLK branch of the Cleveland Public Library?

If not, please view this video. You will want to hear the powerful testimony given by citizens who attended this meeting.

Rideshare to Washington DC - leave TONIGHT - return TOMORROW night

It seems I suddenly need to go to Washington DC to meet with Federal officials about air pollution in Northeast Ohio. As timing is critical, I need to leave tonight and drive - returning tomorrow night. Rather than make the trip alone, wasting all that gas for just one person, I thought I 'd see if anyone else in the realNEO community would like to share a ride to-and-from DC for a day-trip there - we should be there for full business hours... 8am-midnight.

Dear Ronn: realNEO statistics indicate our content is well trafficked by Cleveland Foundation staff

Kylie Roulet DEMANDS MCCO Stop Burning Coal in her BACKYARD!!!
The financially influential Kylie Roulet DEMANDS MCCO and all Affiliates STOP BURNING COAL IN HER BACKYARD!

Dear Ronn:

realNEO statistics indicate our content is well trafficked by Cleveland Foundation staff, so I won't preface my comments with introductions... we know each other well.

The Roulet family is in a position whereby my parents have accumulated $ millions in wealth through investment of their incomes working for or affiliated with University Circle institutions - Case, University Hospitals and the Cleveland Institute of Art - and they intend to donate much of their wealth to those and similar causes - except those institutions burn coal, and do so in a harmful way that has been highly deceptive and has resulted in direct physical and financial harm to members of the family: myself, wife and children... indirectly and directly harming our friends and their family.

As such, my family has less money than it should, my parents' money is tainted by their employers having burned coal throughout their careers... and much of their money is intended for institutions that to this day cause harm by burning coal when there are ready alternatives... and those institutions show no real intent nor good will to stop.

Songs of the Day, starting with: China My China - Brian Eno

Submitted by Norm Roulet on Fri, 07/30/2010 - 23:01.

Genius - genius - genius. We all need to experience that from time to time. Perhaps today? From 1974!

One of the greatest songs from one of the greatest albums by many of the greatest musicians ever. Just astounding! And this is actually an Eno video.

What do you think is the most unusual instrument played in this song?

Without question, if I was to be stranded on a deserted island with the catalog of music written, performed or produced by just one artist, it would be Brian Eno.

Meet the Member from BP on the Greater Cleveland Clean Air Campaign – YOU ARE NOT WELCOME!

Submitted by Norm Roulet on Fri, 07/30/2010 - 16:30.

A realNEO member posted information on the Greater Cleveland Clean Air Campaign, which refused to grant me permission requested in advance IN WRITING to videotape proceedings of their last meeting - I sought to put these proceedings online for citizens to view over the Internet. As we are denied public access and participation in the Greater Cleveland Clean Air Campaign, I believe it is important for the public to see who is on the membership, which is entirely funded by the Cleveland and Gund Foundations, and is the regurgitation of a similarly chartered committee that has not met for 10 months, which has significant responsibility for the failure of all air monitoring and controls in the region, under their watch. Their watch include the eyes of many major regional and global polluters, including BP and other major source point polluters, and far too many pollution enablers.  I protest!

Greater Cleveland Clean Air Campaign – Revised Framework

Mission:  Improve public health by reducing local and regional contributions to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and Local Impact Air Pollution (LIAP).  Building on the successes of the Cleveland Clean Air Century Campaign, engage local air quality stakeholders in assessing and reducing local and regional GHG and LIAP contributions.

Art for TWDC: Woman Walks into Bar - Is Raped by Four Men on the Pool Table - While 20 Watch

Submitted by Norm Roulet on Sat, 07/17/2010 - 08:57.


Like in Sue Coe's painting of this organized crime -
"
Woman Walks into Bar - Is Raped by Four Men on the Pool Table - While 20 Watch"
- Tremont bars are home to real organized criminals violent against Guy Templeton Black

Organized crime means people organizing together to commit crime - like leaders of development corporations, councilmen, the mayor, police and prosecutors, and business owners organizing to violate city laws, ordinances and human rights in Tremont. 

While the most obvious examples of organized crimes in Tremont have been intentional, collusive, proactive violations of restaurant building, parking, patio, occupancy, handicapped accessibility, waste management, property, health and safety laws and ordinances, recent incidents involving reported gunplay and documented violence by TWDC staff and their friends against Guy Templeton Black prove there is a violent organized crime syndicate in Tremont, willing, able, and happy to inflict physical harm upon the weak.

The first rule of the Art Of Surviving Cleveland is PROTECT YOUR DNA!

Art of Surviving Cleveland

The first rule of the Art Of Surviving Cleveland is PROTECT YOUR DNA!

As reported on realNEO: "what we have learned after sampling and genetically profiling many gull families is that colonies close to integrated steel mills transmit DNA mutations to their offspring more frequently than those at rural sites. In addition, the closer the colony to steel mills, the higher the mutation rate".  Further, "Our genetic analyses of environmentally exposed mice revealed that offspring from the steel site inherited nearly double the frequency of DNA mutations compared to their rural counterparts. Clearly, air pollution near integrated steel mills can induce genetic damage. At this time we cannot identify the class of chemical pollutant responsible, but suggest that polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, by-products of coal combustion, are a likely candidate."

In other words, and further: if you want to live a long, healthy, normal life and perhaps have offspring... DON'T live, work, eat, visit or play near a steel mill or any coal-burning facility... DON'T DO THIS:
