Fire Island Great White

 

 

 

” A large shark bumped into a fishing boat off a popular Long Island beach over the weekend in what may have been the third sighting of a great white in waters off the New York and New Jersey coasts this week.

  Greg Grodecki was out with fishing buddies 15 miles off the shore of Fire Island Sunday when a wide-mouthed fish sidled up to his boat. Grodecki said he thought it was a great white shark. 

” It was just amazing to see it, so beautiful and powerful,” Grodecki said. “It’s just a great experience.” “

Caught on Video: McDonald’s Employee Beats Mother, Threatens Toddler

 

 

 

 

 

” Workplace gossip may have led to the brutal beating of a mother in front of her two-year-old son outside a McDonald’s restaurant in Salem City, New Jersey where the two women had worked together. 

The assault was videotaped by a number of onlookers, but no one called 911 or stepped in to help.

“I think it’s messed up no one came to my rescue,” said 27-year-old Catherine Ferreira, who has a broken nose, two black eyes and a concussion. Ferreria admits she was talking about her attacker’s dating life and that’s what provoked the assault.

One of the onlookers posted a 54-second long video of the beating online. It shows a woman in a McDonald’s uniform and Ferreria briefly exchanging words.”

Prices Plummet For Super Bowl Tickets

 

 

Super Bowl Ticket Prices

 

 

 

” Two hungry fan bases and the wealth of the New York metropolitan area had some guessing that Super Bowl XLVIII would turn out to be the most expensive ticket in Super Bowl history.

  However, judging from the reaction of the resale ticket market in the past 24 hours, it could turn out to be one of the least expensive.

  On Friday, nine days before the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks meet at MetLife Stadium, the cheapest ticket to buy for the Super Bowl was $1,779 on NFL Ticket Exchange, the league’s official resale site. That’s $409 cheaper than it was on the site with this many days left last year and $809 cheaper than the year before. 

  Since the conference championship games ended, ticket prices have steadily plummeted. The get-in price on the NFL Ticket Exchange was $2,700 on Monday.”

…  Don’t Help With Sandy Unless You’re Unionized

 

 ” Utility crews from several states East of the Mississippi River hit the road this week to volunteer their time and talents in Northeastern states hit hard by Hurricane Sandy. But crews from Alabama got the shock of their lives when other workers in a coastal New Jersey town told them they couldn’t lend a hand without a union card.

Derrick Moore, who works for Decatur Utilities in Decatur, Ala., told WAFF-TV in Huntsville that crews in Seaside Heights, N.J. turned him and his crewmates away, saying they couldn’t do any work there because they’re not union employees.”

  ” The website NJ.com reports that one parent, Richard Goldberg of Marlboro, was appalled when he asked his 9-year-old twin sons about the exam and was told about the question, which required an essay. One of the boys wrote about breaking a ceiling fan and not telling his dad (presumably until now). The other wrote about the time Goldberg took them out of school on false pretenses for a day of skiing!

“All of a sudden,” Goldberg told reporters, “you have in a sense Big Brother checking out the secrets of families.” He added that the question has the potential to open up all manner of Pandora’s boxes. He asked, as a hypothetical, what action administrators might feel impelled to take it the secret divulged had to do with a criminal act. “
