The middle choice in the multi-selection list box of a baby's mother's gender on a birth certificate.

What's a mother?

The ticket was issued in NY, returnable to Ramapo.
Issued by a trooper on the 87.
I have a regular license from NY
Ticket one: Expired inspection
Ticket two(ex): Improper/no signal 1163D
I want information on "do it yourself":

Passed inspection the next day.

I was driving in the middle lane. There was a rig in front of me in the right lane, with snow from the trailer's roof flying all over my windshield and blinding me. I went into the left lane in order to see the road and passed the trailer. Then I went back into the middle lane.

The trooper said I switched lanes 3x but only signaled once. "I could give you 4 tickets, but you seem like a nice guy".

I know a Ramapo cop and can get a PBA card. Is it worth anything in court?

1163D
Quote
(d) The signals provided for in section eleven hundred sixty-four shall be used to indicate an intention to turn, change lanes, or start from a parked position and not be flashed on one side only on a parked or disabled vehicle, or flashed as a courtesy or "do pass" signal to operators of other vehicles approaching from the rear.

My "intention" was to avoid the blinding snow, my intention wasn't to change lanes. Yes, lanes were changed, but it wasn't my intention.

Anyone has a recommendation for a lawyer in Queens who can help with a ticket? I am 100% in the right, and itís a very simple case, so not looking to spend $$$.

Check out the wiki

Assuming that even though it says "Limit 1 enrolled Card per Card Member across all American Express offer channels", the offer is one per card, so if I have 5 Amex accounts with 10 cards each, that's 50 offers total?

It's it possible to double dip?
I.e. Share with 4 offers AND add family members?
Just spent a while 70+ minutes on the phone with Amazon trying to get a definite answer to this. I think I spoke with reps from 3 continents along the way (one was South African, the other two probably from the US and Asia).

It took such a long time until the reps could fathom what I was talking about - I guess the shared Prime option is very rare nowadays. In the end, he's reached out to the developers and they will hopefully let him know if I can have my cake and eat it too. I shall update y'all.

Commissioner of Education? מה ענין שמיטה אצל הר סיני?

Quote from: New York State Senate link=https://www.nysenate.gov/legislation/laws/EDN/233
  3. The state of New York, through its legislative authority accepts the provisions of section one hundred twenty of the federal-aid highway act of nineteen hundred fifty-six (70 Stat. 374) relating to the salvage of archaeological or paleontological objects, including but not limited to ruins, historic sites, Indian burial grounds, cemeteries, buildings, artifacts, fossils or, other objects of antiquity having national significance from an historical, cultural, social or scientific standpoint, and empowers and directs the commissioner of education to promulgate joint regulations with the department of environmental conservation, the office of general services, and the office of parks, recreation and historic preservation and make agreements with those and other appropriate state departments or agencies and such agency or agencies as needed to carry out the purposes of such provision of law.

Would you say it's worth even with a family of 2?
My car insurance is Ameriprise. The insurance discount that I receive for having a Costco membership is greater than the cost of the membership. For me, the choice is clear.

An adult seat belt goes on your driving record without points. Hard to justify the legal fee or going in yourself to fight it.

In other news, https://www.chronicle-express.com/news/20190605/cohocton-speeding-conviction-overturned-after-2-year-court-battle
That's great work!

Tech Talk / Re: Internet Filters
« on: May 20, 2019, 04:00:25 AM »
although livigent does a pretty good job identifying inappropriate content there is still unfortunately lots of things that slip by (especially images - their image filter is a total joke. if it is turned on you wont find a clean picture of an apple (i guess they think apples are inappropriate  ::) ) but you will still see other images that you don't want to see and with it off it wont get in your way but essentially you don't have a filter.

i prefer NetFree (TAG supports it in some offices and you can get it through e-mail info@netfree.link or over the phone 562-332-6000)
the only setback is that as of now it only works via VPN (outside Israel where they have several ISP internet providers who provide the service)

NetFree takes a unique approach to the image problem: they check each individual image MANUALLY. although it sounds a bit primitive they have successfully created an extremely efficient system in which image checking usually takes approximately 1-5 seconds. the images are reviewed by non-Jewish staff in places the likes of India, Bangladesh and several other countries around the world to cover 24 hrs 6 days a week.

to date NetFree has reviewed 478,969,382 images.

sites in NetFree are also checked manually. after it is checked and determined to be kosher, it no longer has to be checked again for any user. they also have a text robot to remove offensive language and a customized filter for shopping sites.

i have been using it since its founding around 5 years ago and i still recommend it to all. it is non profit and is just here to help the klal and to make a 100% solution available to all.

In Israel it costs 15 NIS per month (approx. $4\mo) in the US it is 30 NIS (approx. $8\mo) [this is due to the Hi-Speed VPN server costs]

Disclaimer: i do not work for NetFree nor have i received any benefit from them (other than their great product - at full cost like any costumer) i do volunteer for NetFree and i do not and have not received any benefit from NetFree.

please reply with any questions and i will try to address IYH.


That's sounds cool! Does this work for Android or Windows?
Do they have a whitelist option?
