Glendale CM Gary Sherwood

Signature Requirement Incorrect for Sherwood Recall

Anna Lee, the chairperson of the "Recall Councilman Gary Sherwood Committee" (RCGS), submitted completed petition sheets to the Glendale City Clerk on Friday, December 19. RCGS paid Petition Partners about $1 of Gila River Indian Community funds per signature, depending on the math and the dubious correctness of the campaign finance reports. We'll feature more wacky math tomorrow. How many signatures did RCGS need to initiate the recall process? Whoops On Wednesday, December 17, Glendale City Clerk Pam Hanna informed Glendale City Hall (personally, via email, and via telephone) the calculation used to determine the correct number of signatures was incorrect. The original number used (3,851) distributed to the RCGS committee and the City Council was incorrect because it was twenty five percent of the total number of votes cast in Councilman Sherwood's Sahuaro District. The base number should have been the total votes cast for councilmember, eliminating the voters … [Read More...]

PLEASE Get Your Flu Shot

Recently posted to Facebook is an article  “John Hopkins Scientist Reveals Shocking Report on Flu Vaccine”.  I want to point out that there are many news outlets that are only in the business of getting people to click on their page for the ad counters, and therefore they receive some sort of financial benefit. Before I get into the meat and potatoes of what I want to say I want this fact to be known; Influenza and it's complications account for up to 40,000 deaths annually in the United States.  That figure works out to 109.5 people every day if extrapolated out over a year. Also to be noted is that the article being cited in the webpage that was linked on Facebook, is based on a … [Read More...]

Sung to the tune of Denis Leary's "I'm An Asshole"

Note to Larry Brooks: Get Bent

On Saturday, December 6, Larry Brooks (@NYP_Brooksie) posted an opinion piece on the NY Post website, a noted bastion of journalistic ethics and snappy headlines. In it, the hockey business Sergeant Schultz of the tri-state area encourages the NJ Devils to throw their season to be in the hunt for a draft pick. He also has something to say about the Arizona Coyotes. The Entire Thing Rather than post a link to the Brooks piece, thus encouraging his click farming tactics, here's the pertinent information in it's entirety: Remember how a few short weeks ago Andrew Barroway was on the verge of gaining majority control of the Coyotes, the news first reported by The Post? Not so fast, for … [Read More...]

Secret Android Speedup WORKS

I'll admit I have yet to perform any scientific calculations on the effectiveness of the following change, I'd have to test it and then revert to the prior setup on my devices to do it correctly. Seat of the pants? This is a great change. You'll need to have Android KitKat 4.4.2 on your device for this to work. I believe right now that means having a Nexus 5 phone or a Nexus 7 tablet. Oracle, Schmoracle Oracle sued Google in 2012 claiming that the basis for the Android operating system running Java, the Dalvik virtual machine, infringed on patents oracle had acquired with it's purchase of Sun Microsystems. Oracle lost their case, but Google learned a lesson and started building … [Read More...]
