PreCharge Risk Management Review

Every so often I come across a product or service that’s so ingenious I wish that I would have come up with the idea. preCharge Risk Management Solutions is one such service. A popular credit card policy for many ecommerce businesses is to only ship merchandise if a customer’s shipping address matches the customers billing address. In the alternative many ecommerce businesses will contact the customer and request the customer to contact their credit card company to place the alternate shipping address on file with the credit card company. Makes sense to the ecommerce business as a fraud prevention method…

NYC Charter Schools Equals Public School Elimination

A Charter Schools is simply a school of choice. Parents choose the Charter School that has a curriculum that they feel would be good for the child and the teachers and administration have more say than provided in traditional public school. I feel that educational options are always a good thing but in the City of New York, charter schools are being utilized as an attempt to take over the entire NYC public school system. NYC has been closing “failing schools” at an alarming rate. “Failing schools” are considered failing schools based upon nothing more than test scores and in…

Merit Pay for Teachers in New York City

For those of you not familiar with the term merit pay, it’s simply a way for teachers to receive financial incentive for students excelling in their educational studies. So what exactly is the issue? Don’t private and public companies alike provide financial incentives to their employees for a job well done? Providing financial incentives for a job well done works just fine in most cases, but would be a disaster and not fair for teachers in the New York City School system. So why is it that merit pay does not work and should not be implemented in the New…

Obamacare – It’s About Time

Obamacare is here and I can’t believe the gloom and doom being reported in the papers, news and on blogs all over the internet. Democrats have been threatened, have bricks thrown through their office windows and gas lines cut. The truth of the matter is Obamacare is not the end of the world. It’s a step in the right direction. The fact of the matter is the United States is the only industrialized nation not to provide health care to it’s citizens. As citizens of the United States of America our tax dollars are used for such things as public…

I Hate the New York Yankees!

Do you hate the New York Yankees? I hate the New York Yankees as well! Yeah they’re able to win because they have the highest payroll in baseball. They buy championships and it’s easy to win when you can spend as much as you want. I hate the New York Yankees. In reality I love the New York Yankees. I was a New York Yankees fan when they weren’t good and you could buy a box seat on game day. If you actually hate the New York Yankees because of the reasons in my opening paragraph, well stupidity is contagious….

New York Soda Tax!

Once again New York State is proposing a New York soda tax, courtesy of the genius Governor Paterson and backed by Mayor Bloomberg. Of course the tax is meant to fight obesity.  A New York soda tax to fight obesity? Yes a New York soda tax! So how does New York State try to plug a looming $9 billion dollar deficit? “We can make a New York state soda tax and disguise it as a fight against obesity.” So what is the proposed New York soda tax? The proposed New York soda tax is a tax of $.01 per each…

Legalize Sports Betting!

Betting on horse races is legal. State run lotteries are legal. Betting on sports in the U.S. of A. is of course illegal unless you live in Sin City. So if I want to legally place a wager on a sporting event it has to be done in Las Vegas and in person as wagering over the internet is not allowed either. Of course you are allowed to wager on a horse race on line. WTF! The great state of Deleware legalized sports gambling and planned on becoming the Vegas of the North East. Of course the U.S. Supreme Court…
