SCSEP
Is A Program For Anyone Over 55 Years Old Who Meets The Financial Requirements.
It Provides Paid Job Training.

About SCSEP
Employment Training-Older Worker Program-SCSEP

Program Description
The Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) is a community service and work based training program for older workers. Authorized by the Older Americans Act, the program provides subsidized, service-based training for low-income persons 55 or older who are unemployed and have poor employment prospects.

Participants have access to both SCSEP services and other employment assistance usually found through your local Unemployment Office Vocational Rehabilitation Dept

For Further Information regarding SCSEP programs in your area contact your local One-Stop Career Center through the Toll-Free Help Line at 1-877-US2-JOBS (1-877-872-5627)

State Vocational Rehabilitation Agency
Coordinates and provides counseling, evaluation, and job placement services for people with disabilities.
State Vocational Rehabilitation Agency

Goal: SCSEP provides both community services and work-based training. Participants work an average of 20 hours a week, and are paid the highest of federal, state or local minimum wage. They are placed in a wide variety of community service activities at non-profit and public facilities, including day-care centers, senior centers, schools and hospitals.

It is intended that community service training serves as a bridge to unsubsidized employment opportunities; SCSEP's goal is to place 30% of its authorized positions into unsubsidized employment annually.

Pass Plan And Ticket To Work
Are For Those Already On Regular type Social Security, SSI And Or SSDI Who Feel That They Are Able To Return To Work, Full or Part Time, And Need Training And Supplies.

There is no penalty for failing!
Anyone who tries Pass Plan And Ticket To Work And After Time Is Not Successful in their work goals. No penalty at all! I got my computer from this program. btw I failed! But I got my computer and a desk chair and some clothes before I did.

The Pass Plan Also Offers Assistance For All Social Security Participants Who Want To Start A Small Business of their own.

Pass Plan
Plan for Achieving Self-Support-Form SSA-545
Don't fall for that employment network who wants $400.00 to do your pass plan application.

Although if you want to start your own business. You may need help to create your business plan, maybe not. Pass gives you the instructions how to do that too.
It's a simple application, won't take more than a couple of hours to do. Pace yourself, do a little whenever you have time and soon it will be completed. Don't try to do it all at one time.

You can fill it out by hand. Print, in black ink, neatly. Will be fine.
I was told by my person who handles my case that "they want people to be approved and succeed so they will work with the client in order to get their plan approved".

In other words, if you fill out the application completely and correctly and there are any issues they need to work out. They will ask you more questions and you can reply from there.

You all come to a conclusion about what you get together. You don't need an Employment Network to fill out the form, or know just what to do or say.

Just fill it out as best you can, the Pass Program will contact you if it needs to be amended. Don't pay Four Hundred Dollars out of your SSI check, even if they say oh, it's just small monthly installments.
Never pay for services. Anyone who wants money is in business. You don't need to buy this service. Real easy to do yourself, or with a friend's help. You could type it up if you know how. Still easy. I did mine myself, and I sure didn't know much about what I was doing. I just answered the questions to the best of my ability.

What is the Ticket To Work Program?
The Ticket to Work and Self-Sufficiency Program is an employment program for people with disabilities who are interested in going to work.  Employment Team-Ticket to Work
Ticket To Work Maximus

The Ticket Program is part of the Ticket to Work and Work Incentives Improvement Act of 1999, legislation designed to remove many of the barriers that previously influenced people’s decisions about going to work because of the concerns over losing health care coverage.

The goal of the Ticket Program is to increase opportunities and choices for Social Security disability beneficiaries to obtain employment, vocational rehabilitation (VR), and other support services from public and private providers, employers, and other organizations.

One employment Network AA Take Charge will let you keep 75 percent of your SSI, For Three Years.

Questions and Answers

There are many other Enployment Networks. Each offers a different kind of service.

Passive Agressive AKA The Neighbors From Hell!



Passive Aggressive behavior: "A personality trait," marked by a pervasive pattern of negative attitudes and characterized by passive, sometimes obstructionist resistance to complying with expectations in interpersonal or occupational situations.

Behaviors: Learned helplessness, procrastination, stubbornness, resentment, sullenness, or deliberate/repeated failure to accomplish requested tasks for which one is (often explicitly) responsible.

Passive-Aggressive Behavior

My Next Door Neighbors Are Torturing Me! 
I posted this late Sat night; June 6, over at Daily Kos State Of The Nation.

I didn't want to make an issue of this and since, Dkos has over 2 million members and viewers, I put it back in draft, 3 days later.

I'm no squealer. Although, I cannot allow this tenant to kill me either. I've been getting pains in my heart that are lasting for days.

I figured I'd just put it in draft for a while and see if these people had any intention of doing what they're supposed to, according to the lease.

As they say in NJ, "I must have Easy; written, on my forehead."

I did contact the bldg Manager, (only to protect my health and sanity I finally had to complain). But, I still put the post in draft.

Finally, I realize this neighbor's behavior, is not going to stop. They do it late at night and on weekends when no Manager is around.

I probably am easy.

But this time; I'm keeping it posted, until these people, learn how to behave like human beings.

Now; this tenant thinks, I'm really easy and has really ramped up; their killing me, with their heavy duty chemical cleaners, scents, laundry detergent and garbage smells, as well as making loud noises all night long,

Guess I wasn't supposed to squeal on her back. It was ok, her squealing on me. She's been complaining about me, since she moved in.

I finally figured out my neighbor's motive. Greed. It's a duplex/side by side 2 apts and a hall.

I can see it all. This woman; moved in and said to herself. "She looks easy (me). A 65 yr old woman, no husband, little family. From another town." I live here 7yrs. She's born here.

She immediately decided that she wanted the apt for a relative. Pretty obvious whom. If she could get rid of me; they could just open both doors and have a big old party 24/7, 365.

ie A Typical Day/Night with the neighbors from hell:

Monday 6/15, tenant next door; went in and out, doing laundry, from 11:30pm until 4am.

I finally fell asleep at 4am.

Then they started knocking on their door and ringing the bell. (*where doorbells are located, only a shared wall and some closets separate the apts. If someone rings the doorbell next door, it's totally audible. Sounds like my doorbell ringing).

I politely explained this to my neighbor, several times.

I can hear every move they make next door. When I'm asleep, if they even walk hard next door, it sounds like someone is running, in my apt.

At 2, 3, 4, 5, am, these sounds are amplified and intensified. Shocks and scares me out of my sleep, every time!

This goes on every night. Times vary, a little.

2:30am, someone rang their doorbell.

4:30am, someone slammed their apt door.

5am, someone knocked on their door.

5:30am, someone rang their doorbell.

6:30am, someone rang their doorbell.

8am, someone rang their doorbell.

9:30pm, someone rang their doorbell.

11:30pm, someone rang their doorbell.

12:30am, someone rang their doorbell.

Profile of the Sociopath

"Subsidized housing" is horrible. Even in decent buildings. You have; too many people, living in one place.

No one has property owner rights and have to count on an absentee management to enforce rules.

All the tenants have their own issues and fight amongst each other. ie the apt complex went no smoking. Vaporizing 101-Alternate Title⋆Nothing's As Easy, As It Looks.

Coincidentally; one of the last times I remember getting any REM sleep, I had a dream that all the people from the apartment complex were having a big party, in my apartment.

I was walking around looking at them all eating and drinking in my kitchen and in my living room.

I was like "why are all these people (mostly men) in my apartment?" Then I opened a kitchen cabinet and it was full of cartons of cigarettes.

It was a very weird dream, like a nightmare. Not long afterwards; maybe a year. The Manager appeared; with her, no smoking edict.

For months, the smell of scented candles has permeated my apt, every time they open their apt door.

This tenant does at least 4 loads of laundry 5 times a week. But for the past month they're really washing every thing they own, it seems.

This tenant has washed, over 50 loads of laundry in the past two weeks. Those laundry powder chemicals molecules were flying around that hall. I couldn't get rid of the smell out of my apartment, all day.

ie
Last week and last night the smell of laundry soap from them bringing so much of it in the hall (in a laundry basket), permeated my apt so badly that I was covered in the smell. I could smell it on my pillow case the next morning. I was overcome by the chemicals (was, having trouble breathing and chest pains all night).

Monday 6/15 They just did more laundry. I can smell the laundry soap residue, on the clothes as they just brought them back in the hall. Damp. Too cheap to put them in the dryer another 10-15 minutes.

I'm not the lease violation police; but, both using scented candles and non tenants using the laundry room are lease violations. The first, an obvious fire hazard and wear and tear on the washers and dryers that no one is paying for since they're non tenants and don't pay rent.

This is bull. It's deliberate too. This tenant has nothing to lose. No one here will say anything negative about her. She's really not worth all that much trouble. If she wasn't killing me. I know, I have much better things to spend my time doing. 

The thing is, the chemicals make my heart race. Bad. It feels like it's trying to beat backwards and skip. Very painful. Lasts for hours. Even days.

Being awoken to the ring of the doorbell does the same thing. This has affect has been happening for months now.

My neighbor knows the sound of the ringing doorbell scares me awake late at night. I've asked her repeatedly to get spare keys for anyone staying there. Cost $1.49ea, at any hardware dept in any store. I have a spare key.

She also knows that garbage and other smells from the hall, permeate my apartment. The hall is very small. At most, 2ft wide.

I'm sure she was told about my chemical sensitivities by the Manager and also told, to use garbage bags etc (it's in the lease).

I asked the Property Management to put up new weather stripping or whatever to make the door air tight, several times.

But since this neighbor keeps lying and saying she smells me smoking, so far, they haven't.

She, does not smell anything from my apt!

I have 2; brand new hepa filter, air purifiers they cost $150.00 and another old one too. Vaped tobacco doesn't smell like smoking cigarettes does. She's lying. 

I haven't smoked in my apt since I signed the papers in court, last Sept, agreeing not to. I knew that; I had consented to, a legally binding agreement and complied.

This tenant/neighbor and her guest's behavior; are; typical, "passive aggressive."

I already sleep with foam ear plugs to keep the sound of the bell from giving me an outright heart attack. At 3 ,4 ,5, am this sound is always scary! 

It's still the same story. They wake me up; 2am, 4am, 4:30am, 5:30am, 6:30am, 7am, 8am. Having people ringing their doorbell or making loud noises slamming doors (yes slamming doors at 4:30am), cooking, cleaning etc. In the middle of the night. This has been going on, every night!

Note to my next door neighbor:


Funny how power shifts. Last year this woman was complaining about me. Telling all kinds of stories. To the maintenance guys, managers, other tenants, anyone who would listen.

She's the one who brought Management around. In her attempt(s), to try and get rid of me.

I had a friend. He used to say; "be careful what you wish for, you just might get it."

He also used to say, "what goes around, comes around."

♥Never Swim When There's No Life Guard And Never Swim Alone♥


Drowning and Near-Drowning: Prevention and Treatment

Secondary drowning can cause death 48 hours after exposure to water

Drowning Doesn’t Look Like Drowning

Never Mix Alcohol/Drugs With Activities Near, Or In The Water! Never Swim or Boat When Intoxicated!

Never, swim out further than you can swim back to shore from in 30 seconds.

Teach Children To Swim.

Picture Illustrations How to Do CPR on an Adult

First, Dial 911


Infant/Child CPR


I just wanted to share my experiences and some good advice about swimming safety.

I keep reading in the news about young people drowning. So I wrote this for everyone, everywhere.

Rip Tides (current)

An extremely strong channel of water flowing seaward from near the shore (see photos), through the surf line. National Weather Service-Rip Current Safety

Typical flow is at 0.5 metres per second (1–2 feet per second), and can be as fast as 2.5 metres per second (8 feet per second).

Rip Current


Rip Current Identification


I grew up in Bayonne and Southern New Jersey (Brick Town. About 20 miles from Seaside Heights Boardwalk) and spent every summer swimming in its ocean and occasionally in its lakes. But mostly in the ocean.

I've swam at beaches, from Point Pleasant to Atlantic City.

The ocean is not a place for an inexperienced swimmer, no matter how calm it looks.

If caught in an outgoing tide; or rip tide, Don't Try To Swim In To The Shore. SWIM SIDEWAYS FROM ONE SIDE OF THE BEACH TO THE OTHER. Rip tides are sudden and are only in parts of the water.

Don't panic. If you swim sideways you will swim out of the rip tide affected water. It's impossible to fight the tide and try to swim in. It will just keep pulling you out further.

The ocean may look beautiful, inviting and fun, but it can also be very dangerous for anyone who is not a strong swimmer. If you don't swim really good. Swim in the motel pool and stay in the shallow end. Pools can be dangerous too.

Always wear a life jacket-(swim vest), if you are not an experienced swimmer and always when boating.

Children's Swim Vests

Adult's Swim Vests

(I have no interests in these above companies. I just wanted to provide some links where economical swim vests were available).

Use caution when swimming in lakes, rivers, streams and generally everywhere. Riverbeds, streams etc, often contain tree roots and other debris that a swimmer can get caught on. 

The fresh water, unlike the salt water of the ocean, doesn't provide any buoyancy which helps you to float .

Buoyancy Salt Water vs. Fresh Water
by Chris Sullivan
Also, the mud bottoms can pull one down.

Always wear a bathing suit when swimming (or at the most, cotton shorts and a tee shirt). Do Not wear heavy clothing, like jeans. You'll sink like a stone!

When in a desperate situation in the water you do not need an extra 8 pounds (aprox weight of a wet pair of jeans) pulling you down!

I learned how to swim by age five using a swim/life vest. I still almost drowned in a lake, once when I was a teenager.

I was just wading and stepped into a drop (also called a dip). The next thing I knew, I was over my head and going down.

I was wearing jeans and they became heavy as lead and were pulling me under and that was it!

Luckily I had the time to tear them off and then I managed to struggle back up to the surface.

At the time I was surrounded by people close enough to almost touch me. But apparently no one saw me go under.

I am a most experienced swimmer. If I can almost drown, anyone can!

NEVER SWIM, WHERE THERE IS NO LIFEGUARD PRESENT AND NEVER SWIM ALONE!

Never jump into unfamiliar water. As well as never dive into unfamiliar water.

One never knows how deep the water is, local and current tide strength, whether it's full of large rocks and other hazards that one can hit.



And Never Drive While Intoxicated! Not drunk, or stoned.

Take My Best Advice and My Word
Don't smoke reefer
(pot, blunts, hashish, etc).
It Is A Very Addictive Drug, Like Tobacco,
If you smoke it Once, You will get psychologically Hooked For Life!
Very Expensive!
You'll end up working just to support your reefer habit.
Don't Even Try It! And don't drink alcohol either. You will lose your senses and put yourself in much more of a position to be victimized!

Get Yourself a pizza and soda, or a burger and fries.
Go to a movie, buy a cd, or something you've been wanting.
Do something that's really fun!
You'll enjoy it much better than getting beat out of your money half the time too.

Enjoy Enjoy.
There is a good life for the youth of today. We are going to have Peace and The Promise of Freedom will be fulfilled.

Besides reefer doesn't get you high. It's just another altered state of consciousness, like alcohol. All it will do is make you nervous and dumb enough not to be even able to walk around safely. It's seriously physically dangerous, and like booze you can't drive a car.

There really is no such thing as high.
Street and prescription drugs only make you very sick and can kill you the first time you try them!

You Are Already High!
Youth Is Being Naturally High. It Does Not Get Any Better Than A Healthy Body and Mind and all those Fabulous Hormones pumping through you!

Drugs and alcohol only diminish your health and don't get anyone High.

☮♥Welcome To The Age Of Aquarius☮♥
Fasten Your Seat Belts.
It's Gonna Be A Bumpy Ride!


First We Have To, Shut Down-spectra's natural gas transportation pipeline in New Jersey And New York City!

The Objective Is Simple-NO Gas Pipeline!

spectra energy built a major natural gas pipeline expansion to New York City that runs through the heart of Jersey City. Jersey City & NYC will bear tremendous risks with no reward, all for the benefit of spectra energy shareholders!

Natural gas pipelines are prone to high risk of leaks that are released as either fine mists of toxic spray or result in fires and explosions that may do significant damage to property and life.

Also; NO Tar Sands, Mountaintop Removal, Gas Fracking, Strip And Longwall Mining. An American Tragedy And Global Climate Crime!

Spectra is rushing through the installation of their high pressure natural gas pipeline under the Hudson River, from New Jersey to emerge at Gansevoort Street, where Con Edison will pick up the work and build out the last section of the pipe to link to their distribution system.

spectra's proposed pipeline, would run up 10th Avenue from next to the New Whitney Museum up to 15th Street.

In December 2012, Jersey City filed a lawsuit in Federal Court to halt construction of spectra's proposed pipeline.

This suit, hasn't been heard by the court yet. I read the news every day awaiting the Court's decision so I know it hasn't been settled yet. Jersey City is still waiting the Federal Courts pending decision concerning the overturning of FERC's decision.

Detailed Maps-Proposed Pipeline Route

The Danger

Incredibly; spectra wants to run the Manhattan portion of the pipeline from, Liberty State Park in Jersey City, past the Statue Of Liberty, Ellis Island, Castle Garden (War of 1812 Era Fort Clinton And America's first immigrant receiving center), The Holland Tunnel, The New Jersey Turnpike, etc and off Hoboken's pristine shoreline, into Manhattan's West Village. Spectra laying a pipeline to bring FRACKED gas into the West Village Really Scary! This is crazy!

On June 28 2012, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) granted approval to spectra to proceed with construction of the pipeline and ok'd spectra's original proposal.

Construction and testing are finished. Now this gas pipeline will go into service next month, with gas flowing  through Bayonne, Jersey City and offshore Hoboken.

spectra and con ed plan to bring fracked gas, laced with radon, into New York via a new explosive, high pressure pipeline. This is bad for the environment and bad for New Yorkers.


 

From Bayonne to Hoboken, spectra's controversial natural gas transportation pipeline is expected to start pumping gas November 1st by Joseph R. Vena/The Jersey Journal October 24, 2013

I wrote this diary because I love New York City, Jersey City and they really turned Hoboken into a beautiful city. I have many friends in Manhattan and Jersey City.

I don't know how spectra got a permit for this project to begin with.

Considering the large number of people all over Jersey City, NYC and with the West Village's congestion, allowing spectra's gas pipeline in this densely populated area, is totally reckless and irresponsible!
