Time to put the NJ bear hunt in the crosshairs
Posted 12/11/2013 2:29:00 PM

I like ideas. I REALLY like GOOD ideas. What I don't like is when someone has a BAD idea, and tries to convince me that it's a GOOD idea. Take the annual NJ bear hunt for example. Now I have nothing against hunters, gun owners, or anyone that enjoys the sport of hunting. I'm sure there was a time when hunting actually had some value, but that's for another blog. If i thought the bear hunt was an effective means of curbing the bear population, trust me, I'd back it 100 percent. But let's face it; having an annual hunt to prevent bear encounters is about as effective as treating a cold by skinny dipping at the Shore in January. It simply DOES NOT WORK. The goal of the bear hunt is to "bag", or as I prefer to call it, "shoot and kill", so-called "nuisance bears" who make the fatal mistake of wandering into a yard. The problem is, when a hunter enters the wilderness to "bag" a bear, he or she is probably "bagging" a bear that has NEVER entered a yard, knocked over a bird feeder, or, the horror, tipped over a trash can. The bear is targeted and KILLED just for being a bear. When someone matching the description of someone who robbed a drug store, or they instantly guilty? THAT is the equivalent of the NJ bear hunt. Here's the real solution: keep your yard clean, get rid of the bird feeders, close your dumpster if you have one, and if you spot a big bad bear, calmly get back in your house or car, and call 911. That's all. And unless the big mean bear is packing a gun, chances are he'll live to OMG enter your yard another day.

    chanel outlet-Tucked off the High Line is perhaps one of our favorite spaces ever: Hoffman Hall at The High Line Hotel. A former seminary, the stunning room maintains its gothic architecture. Any collection shown here is a treat. But when it's longchamp outlet Timo Weiland, we're perhaps extra thrilled. The design trio presented their menswear collection this morning - 15 or so looks that represent the best of East Coast meets West Coast.

Oh, the replica louis vuitton bags possibilities, theFashionSpot: What was your inspiration for menswear? Alan Eckstein: It's all about our New York fans. It has a little bit of L.A. sprinkled in there. It has a little bit of Julius Shulman's architectural pictures from L.A. from the 50s and 60s.
