Harvard Cherry Picker

This cherry picker was parked alongside the new South building of Harvard's Center for Government and International Studies on Cambridge Street. The yellow plastic tape use as a warning looked as if it was meant to protect the picker from being stolen, or for keeping people from climbing on it.

Horizontal Tomato Plant

This tomato plant was thriving on the sidewalk of Sumner Road near Harvard University. It is not known if this was a Harvard experiment gone awry or just some misplaced seeds by quirky students.

Amending Human Rights Ordinance

This is a hearing of the Ordinance Committee of the Cambridge MA City Council held on December 12, 2007, regarding amending the city Human Rights Ordinance. The overt unlawful bias of officials and others with disabilities can be seen by the deceptive statements that the proposed amendment includes persons with non physical disabilities. It did not. It also kept the government entities in the city unaccountable for their violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the MA statute against discrimination based on disability. It shows how little city officials care about the state and US laws. It is one more shameful exercise of power by small-minded Cambridge city officials.

Harvard Street Fire, Cambridge, MA

At about 9:00 PM Sunday September 21, 2008 the Cambridge Fire Department rescued an elderly woman from a burning building. She lived on the top floor of 371 Harvard Street at the corner of Trowbridge Street in Cambridge, MA. A Cambridge police sergeant reported that she suffered burns on about 25 percent of her body mostly on her arms. She was taken to Mass General Hospital for treatment. No firemen were injured. Cambridge police kept Trowbridge Street between Mass Avenue and Harvard Street closed as late as 12:45 AM Monday. Earlier Harvard Street from Remington Street to Ellery Street was closed. All tenants were displaced for the night. One official reported the tenants would be let into their apartments get some belongings at about midnight.

Visiting Albany New York

Visiting Albany New York during a working autumn day, this footage shows the state capital campus during lunch hour. The pool and modern buildings, Empire State Plaza, were constructed by former Governor Nelson Rockefeller. Most striking is the Egg which is shown from a few perspectives. The view looking east indicates the grandeur of the state. The capital building is being renovated and looks like the state house in Boston, Massachusetts. Inside it is more luxurious and better maintained than the state house in Boston. State Street is a busy street with restaurants and office buildings. The area around the capital has numerous statues and markers noting the historical contributions of Albany and men born in the city. Are they called Albanians?

Antrim Mennonite Choir Albany, NY

A choir from the Mennonite Church stood on the sidewalk in Albany, New York on busy State Street below the capital campus singing hymms. I captured them on video September 10, 2008 during a visit to the state capital. They publish a CD called "Amazing Grace." This choir is likely from churches in Shaftsbury, Vermont and Russell, New York.

Fireman's Park Kingston, NY

This fireman's memorial park is located in Kingston, New York about 50 miles south of Albany.

Habitat for Humanity and for Recycling?

Each year Harvard administration does its part to recycle goods, furniture and stuff. They hold a sale on the "overpass," in front of the Science Center at Harvard. The city owns the land but does not object to its land being used by a charitable organization, even one with a $35 billion endowment.

Harvard University Marching Band Practice

Returning from a trip to New York State at about 9:30 PM on September 11, 2008, I saw a group of Harvard University Marching Band members playing on the "overpass," in front of the Science Center on the Harvard campus. I had no thought they they were serenading me. I am not an elected official. That piece of land is owned by the City of Cambridge but is "administered" by Harvard. Many Harvard faculty members, administrators and students and some of Harvard's police officers, think that Harvard owns the land because they use it for university functions all year. In this case they had no permit to have a concert, and it was after 9:00 PM the hour noisy work is banned in the city. But these are Harvard people who have no obligations to others. You can see one of the band leaders give me a look as I filmed him.

Cambridge Hygiene Lacking

Cambridge, MA politicians, having little power and less self esteem, boast of awards they get. Best walking city, most accessible city, Triple A Bond Rating. They believe that Cambridge is a city always on the cutting edge due to being the host city for Harvard University, several biotech firms, and MIT. They ignore their lack of focus on hygiene by its medical professionals and its residents. They do not care that 90,000 Americans die each year due to negligence by medical professionals, some of which is simply not washing their hands between patients. For many years new residents lament the growing number and size of the rodent population. This is solely a result of sloppiness by people in the city who do not keep the streets clean. Lately they blame people who come to Cambridge who do not live in the city. Here are two brief video clips showing how grocery stores in Hagerstown, Maryland, and Kingston, NY provide hand wipes for patrons free to use to clean the shopping cart handles and the children's seats. No market in Cambridge provides hygienic cleaners.
