NY Metro finally catching up?

From the Real Deal:

Home prices in NY area climbed 5.1% year-over-year in August

August prices for single-family homes in the New York metro area rose 5.1 percent compared to the same time last year, according to a new report from CoreLogic.

CoreLogic released its monthly Home Price Index and Home Price Index Forecast for August on Tuesday, covering all single-family home transactions in New York City, Jersey City and White Plains. The analysis also shows prices rose 1.7 percent month-over-month.

The slight rise is in keeping with a national trend, which CoreLogic TRData LogoTINY CEO Anand Nallathambi attributed to investor-fueled demand and lack of adequate supply.

“This continued price appreciation is contributing to a growing affordability crisis in many market around the country,” Nallathambi said.

Nationwide house prices increased by 6.2 percent year-over-year, and 1.1 percent on a month-over-month basis, the data showed.
CoreLogic predicts U.S. home prices will increase by 5.3 percent on a year-over-year basis between August 2016 and August 2017. The month-over-month prices are expected to rise by 0.4 percent.

    On yesterday’s topic of H overdoses, well here’s today’s NY Times.

    As Drug Deaths Soar, a Silver Lining for Transplant Patients
    By KATHARINE Q. SEELYEOCT. 6, 2016

    After a year on a waiting list, Rita Lottie received a liver transplant from an organ donor with hepatitis C. Credit Alexandra Hootnick for The New York Times

    BOSTON — The surge in deaths from drug overdoses has become an unexpected lifeline for people waiting for organ transplants, turning tragedy for some into salvation for others.

    As more people die from overdoses than ever before, their organs — donated in advance by them or after the fact by their families — are saving lives of people who might otherwise die waiting for a transplant.

    When Dave and Roxanne Maleham got the call in June that they had long dreaded — that their son, Matt, 38, was on life support after overdosing on heroin and fentanyl — they talked about donating his organs.

    “We were trying to think if we could draw any good out of this tragedy,” said Mr. Maleham, pastor at Union Congregational Church in Union, N.H.

    Matt, as it turned out, had already registered as a donor on his driver’s license, which came as an enormous relief, almost a gift, to his parents. His donation reminded them of their son’s generosity and good-heartedness, qualities that his addiction had sometimes obscured.

    “It absolutely turned things around for me,” Mrs. Maleham said. “Finding out that with his death someone else could benefit was such a joy.”

    The impact has been striking, especially in a region like New England, which is in the grip of a heroin and opioid epidemic.

    Since he has been away Hackensack has progressed and become more democratic. If he returns, his machine and old ways return. Same thing with the Clintons. They have been there before, they know where the loots is buried and make sure their skeletons are still buried well.

    Trumpy is what he’s. But he has destroyed the old foolish GOP and by winning will vanquish the Clintons to the Bushes’ purgatory. Trump won’t be able to do much damage because he’s against the corporate state which controls both dems and GOP. The only thing he’ll do is to make sure no stupid neo-con middle east wars.

    I think Trump can do real damage. Anyone that spews nonsense lies on a regular basis is very dangerous. His supporters believe anything he says. So when he starts yelling and screaming that the election is fixed anytime he is losing, he is playing with major fire. If he loses, how do we know that a bunch of his supporters don’t start rioting on the basis that the election is fixed? If these people had any ability to think for themselves, they would realize how stupid trump sounds when he claims it’s fixed. If it’s fixed, how the hell did he hijack the republican party nomination for president? It’s far from fixed, and he needs to stop spewing nonsense like this. He is the primary evidence for why it’s not fixed.

    He has a few good ideas, like the elimination of the hb1 visa program. On the other hand, the majority of his ideas will hurt the economy more than it helps.

    I thought there was going to be rioting at the Republican convention. The Bernie supporters came the closest at the Dem convention. And they didn’t even have a horse in the race.

    I spoke to a major Dem fundraiser last night. One of those bleeding heart liberals who rationally understands that both sides are essentially the same when it comes to supporting the income gap. Well I told him that I would donate $1,000 to the Clinton Foundation the moment Hillary does anything that would limit Goldman’s profit making ability in any way, shape, or form. He told me my checkbook was safe. We both agreed that 2020 is D day for the Republicans and that Pence or similar should run away with it barring a wildly successful economy under Clinton. That is what he is afraid of. This is a guy who thoroughly understands the purchasing favor game as he is deep in it. You get a lot of favor when you host $1,000 plate dinners in your home in Montclair for Hillary. If you can’t afford the entrance fee, well then you can watch her on TV talk about how she is going to help the middle class.

    Fab…responding to your bitter pill comment from last night. Buying political favor is not a partisan issue. But denying the true purpose of the Clinton Foundation and it’s inherent conflict of interest is, how is it best to describe? Deplorable? Two wrongs don’t make a right. The Clinton Foundation is the easiest way ever to purchase favor. It is intentionally not focused to make the purchase of favor more accessible to anyone that can afford it. Plain and simple, our government has always been for sale. It just has never been this easy. And best of all, it’s now tax deductible! And you are OK with this.

  27. NJGator says:

    “The board also made a notable change in the schedule, canceling classes for Election Day, November 8, with many schools already serving as polling places. Citing the wackiness and the divisiveness of the presidential campaign, board member Laura Hertzog and Board President Jessica de Koninck were afraid that the election could pose security concerns affecting the students. Board member Joseph Kavesh, meanwhile, said that he expected one of the candidates to receive 95 percent of the vote in Montclair and didn’t think divisiveness between supporters of the candidates would matter. He was alone; the board voted 6-1, with Kavesh dissenting, to have Election Day off for the students. ”

    Chi…that annuity is brilliant. I am not surprised that after the financial crisis, when everyone should have been going full hog into the market, public educators were transferring their wealth into fixed income. I can only imagine how much opportunity they lost. Though disgusted by this perk available to them, the taxpayer should be more upset over the lack of financial acumen these teachers exhibited (only the brightest and best). How much more will their collective boneheaded decision cost the taxpayers when they have to make up for the traditional pension shortfall that will develop from people not being in it when the market came back! I suppose, they can look at what happened in NJ when the state chose not to contribute during the bad times (and the good times too) for a clue.

  30. STEAMturd knows hyper incarceration makes hyper gentrification oh so much easier says:

    I’ve been down in AC for the NJEA convention a number of times. Very few teachers attend and those that do hang out in the casin0s mostly. And they gamble terribly, I might add. Want to see the best poker players on the East Coast? Go to any poker room in AC during the convention.

Problem solved. Montclair parents are pissed because the BOE decided to add another day off to a week that already had 2 days off with only 4 weeks notice. It’s not like they didn’t know about election day when they made up the school calendar.

We have requested that stations in Florida delay any of those ads on the Weather Channel until after the storm passes.”

    Clinton’s decision to air ads on The Weather Channel as attention shifted from the 2016 campaign to the approaching hurricane sparked some criticism from Republicans, including former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.

    By Amanda Lee Myers
    Associated Press

    LOS ANGELES — Police officers who shot and killed men in two separate weekend shootings were justified in their use of deadly force because they feared for their lives, the Los Angeles police chief said.

    A group of people protested outside Beck’s news conference, chanting, “No justice, no peace, no racist police.” Three were arrested for unlawful assembly after refusing orders to leave police headquarters and take their demonstration to a public street.

    The protesters rejected the police department’s description of the shooting and called on them to release the video if they have nothing to hide, something Beck said was being considered but could only happen when all the evidence has been collected and analyzed.

    Pence says Trump no longer wants a Muslim ban

    Trump running mate Mike Pence this morning told CNN that Trump no longer supports a ban on Muslims entering the US but wants a ban on immigrants “from countries compromised by terrorism.”

    Even before Tuesday’s debate, a large part of Pence’s job had become to describe Trump’s policies and views as less extreme than the candidate has described them (see the lengthy Sunday show footage of Pence taking questions about whether Trump still wants a “deportation force”).

    “We’re going to suspend immigration from countries compromised by terrorism,” Pence says.

    CNN’s Chris Cuomo does a good job of pushing him: “But governor that is a finessed position,” Cuomo says, pointing out that Pence strongly condemned Trump’s call for a Muslim ban back when he was supporting Ted Cruz.

    “You condemned those comments. Why do you not condemn them now?”

    Pence laughs, as if no questions could be sillier. “Well because it’s not Donald Trump’s position now.” Ha. Ha.

    From the Record Today. This is the local equivalent of a Clinton in office.

    The city has begun paying nearly $3 million in court-ordered compensation to former Police Chief Ken Zisa after a judge dismissed the sole remaining criminal conviction against him in August.

    Zisa, who at one point faced five criminal charges related to his tenure as chief, no longer has any charges against him. With the final charge dismissed in August, he is entitled to receive $1.7 million in lost wages and benefits and $1.1 million in legal fees.

    Related: Judge dismisses remaining criminal charge against ex-Hackensack police chief Zisa

    The city and Zisa have agreed to spread the payments over a three-year period, with the first partial payment of $659,000 issued this week, spokesman Phil Swibinski said in a press release. The remaining payments are expected on Jan. 10, 2017, and Jan. 10, 2018, Zisa’s attorney Patricia Prezioso said.

    “In effect, the city is paying him what the city owes him,” Prezioso said. “It’s a straight-up calculation of what he was owed.”

    Zisa said that the $1.7 million was the result of calculations of his salary and benefits during the time when he was facing charges or serving time under house arrest as a result of them.

    “My intention at this point is to retire, if that’s possible financially,” he said. He said his goal was to retire with the full benefits and pension awarded to a police chief.

    “I think it would be impractical to return as chief after a six-year absence if we are able to complete the final arrangements with the city of Hackensack,” he said.

    Whether the city should be liable for Zisa’s legal fees is under review, Swibinski said, since the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office, under the supervision of the state attorney general, oversaw Zisa’s arrest and trial.

    Mayor John Labrosse expressed anger at Zisa and the legal system.

    “This man and the rest of the Zisa political machine have nothing but greed and contempt for Hackensack taxpayers. The level of damage that they have done to our city is tragic,” he said. “The way that this entire matter was handled by our legal system is extremely disappointing. Clearly there is no justice for taxpayers.”

    Responding to Labrosse’s statement, Prezioso cited three judicial decisions critical of Zisa’s prosecution.

    “It is a shame that the mayor would choose to politicize this,” Prezioso said. “These harsh words about my client have been replete in the media over the last six years and are a reflection of what now has been judicially determined to have been an unfair prosecution.”

    Zisa surmised that Labrosse had not read the court decisions, and should do so “before making those kinds of political attack statements.”

    In 2012, a jury found Zisa guilty on five criminal counts, but Judge Joseph Conte dismissed three of the charges, leaving only insurance fraud and official misconduct. In 2015, a state appellate court overturned the insurance fraud charge, and in August, Judge Susan Steele dismissed the official misconduct charge.

    The misconduct charge stems from a 2008 incident in which Zisa, who then was police chief, was accused of improperly removing his girlfriend at the time, Kathleen Tiernan, from the scene of a car accident by driving her away before she could submit to a sobriety test. The first officers to respond to the scene reported smelling alcohol and observing drunken behavior, prosecutors said. Steele’s 110-page brief determined that one of the prosecutors in Zisa’s 2012 case intended to cause a mistrial because the state’s case against Zisa was weak.

    She dismissed the charge on the grounds that to retry him “violates his constitutionally protected right against double jeopardy and principles of fundamental fairness.”

    Once again you idiots let the 6:33 train leave Newark just as a large number of us ran up the stairs to catch this train.

    I truly hope the people responsible for this horrible customer service suffer miserably for this constant and intentional abuse of Raritan Valley Line customers. I don’t care if they are NJ Transit or Amtrak employees. They are offensive human beings that don’t deserve the jobs they hold.

    You make DMV workers nationwide look good. You are the epitome of horrible government workers who are completely unresponsive to your customers’ needs. Calling you brain dead would be an insult to patients in a persistent vegetative state.

    Dear x,

    —–Feedback Description—–
    At least once a week, I miss the connection at Newark Penn on my way home from NY Penn. The missed connection happens because you run the train late out of NY. Instead of holding the Raritan train, your dispatchers let it leave on time. Are they clinically retarded or willfully abusive? We suffer the indignity of having to transfer during rush hour. Then you make us suffer again by letting the connecting train leave when it would be easy to hold her train a few minutes because YOUR TRAIN FROM NY IS LATE!!! Stop managing the connection for a the sake of inflating your on-time stats to the detriment of your customers. Of course, you don’t care about customers because you’re government employees who just spit at the people who pay your salaries. You people are disgusting examples of humanity (or lack thereof).

    “The new rule’s implementation on Wednesday afternoon came as a surprise to Stephen Burkert, the general chairman of a union that represents New Jersey Transit conductors.

    “They’re looking to have a safer railroad, which I fully agree with,” Mr. Burkert said. “Safety is always first for my members and the riding public.”

    But, he added, the rules will require more work for conductors.

    “What it technically does is put more job responsibility on the conductor, besides what they had to do yesterday,” he said. “You have effectively doubled the work responsibilities for the conductor.”

    Can we just pull the plug on our country right now?

  95. BTW, many, if not all, train engineers do that. They get their breaks at the ends of their runs. If they get to the end of their run 5 minutes late they get 5 minutes less break. If they get to the end 10 minutes early, they get 10 minutes more break.

  98. STEAMturd knows hyper incarceration makes hyper gentrification oh so much easier says:

    I commuted into Hoboken for most of my adult life. The trains never come in faster than 10mph once they approach the old train wash. In most cases, they pull in at about 5mph. NJTransit simply does not want to accept responsibility for their POS rail system. I’ve seen a lot of poorly run public sector entities. None come close to NJ Transit. They make bad decision after bad decision with such regularity that nothing surprises me with them anymore. From letting 1/3rd of the new passenger stock flood during Sandy, to designing the now suspended new tunnel with no improvement of the Portal bridge, to routing less and less trains to Hoboken intentionally sacrificing our commute times to try to get the new tunnel built. Then add the giant waste of money the Secaucus transfer represented and their original plan to not even allow a park & ride there. The list of boneheaded decisions there never ends. This is just the tip of the iceberg. I’ve developed some online relationships with a few conductors over the years including Josh from clever commute. He quit due to all of this and decided to try to develop technology on his own to make up for NJ Transits lack of care. He wrote the Clever Commute app. I’m sure, while collecting a handsome pension.

    I read somewhere (not sure if it’s true), but the newer trains don’t have the dead man’s pedal anymore. Supposedly, because the engineers hated them.

  103. STEAMturd knows hyper incarceration makes hyper gentrification oh so much easier says:

    They now have a dead-man’s vigilance device. You’ve heard it if you sit up front in the first car. It sounds an alarm and the engineer must press a button within 20 seconds or the train will stop on it’s own. It’s possible this wouldn’t have helped in Hoboken. A dead man’s pedal would have helped as it works immediately.

    Amen, the conspiracy talk is insane

    “Hillary Clinton is not the lesser of two evils. She has never been. When one examines the facts, there is no contest between Clinton and Trump. Donald Trump has a real rap sheet that should disqualify him from being president. Hillary Clinton’s “crimes” are conspiracy theories that have been cooked up by the conservative media’s anti-Clinton conspiracy cottage industry that has spent decades as a robust source of profit for conservative authors and media.”

    “The idea that Hillary Clinton is the lesser of two evils is a lazy media narrative that was created by corporate mainstream talking heads only interested in false equivalence to keep ratings and interest up during an election. It would take too much effort for the media to discuss the fact that Clinton’s approval ratings are a byproduct of decades of Republican attacks on her last name combined with the extreme polarization of the electorate.

    2016 isn’t a lesser of two evils election. It is a base election that may turn into a rout because Republicans made the foolish decision to nominate a candidate with a closet full of evils to run against the most competent and qualified candidate to a major party’s nomination in the modern era of American politics.”
