Antrim Caskey and Bennett Baumer | Convicted slumlord Jay Wartski has made a career of dodging court orders, harassing tenants and illegally converting single-room occupancy residential hotels (SROs) into regular hotels. Wartski cut his teeth by illegally evicting SRO tenants at the Sahara and Bond hotels by using junkies, drug dealers, hookers, and even dogs to harass folks. Wartski ended up spending a month in Rikers Island for his antics.
These days, he's the owner of the Dexter House on West 88th Street on the Upper West Side, and employing the same tactics of illegal SRO conversions past.more... 6 Comments

Yvonne | After a decision at a meeting convened by tenured faculty at the department of anthropology, Yale University, David Graeberâ€™s contract was not renewed. This is not a situation of David being denied tenure, but rather that the extension of his contract has been denied, and this is an extremely rare situation. In light of his exemplary scholarship and mentoring, many of Davidâ€™s students and colleagues strongly support his continuing at Yale. To this end we have created an open petition. As the review process of the decision is going to take place very soon, we request you to support this endeavor by signing this petition as soon as possible. We would also appreciate any other support that you are able to provide. The link of the petition is below. Please feel free to forward this petition to any interested persons or listserves. http://www.petitiononline.com/dgraeber/petition.html Thanks, Durba Chattaraj, department of anthropology, Yale University. Devika Bordia, department of anthropology, Yale University. more... 3 Comments

A. Concerned Citizen | (from the Open Newswire): "I feel dirty. "No, I havenâ€™t been working in a sewer --- though I may as well have been. Neither have I been part of a kiddy-porn ring; however, I have been a party to child abuse. What terrible thing did I do? I just got finished proctoring the new Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT). A five hour behemoth of an exam, the test is designed to figure out whether students are ready to enter American colleges. The quality of the exam is questionable. Its effects on children are overbearing and abusive." more... 9 CommentsPage 225 | Page 223
