Ithaca's political nature is govern by a string of coalitions between various social and
cultural segments which seeks their own mini spheres of control while at the sametime pleading their central cause of Ithaca
being the idealistic community ( This was once described to me as ' The Movement ' ).
What is entailed is the actual political realities which often are ingnored;from
fear by the present rulling coalition in themselves lossing control-they can not adapt to the real circumstance both politically,
socially and economically which pertains to Ithaca in future economic and social growth terms.
As of 2006, the small economic growth boom has been felt every where in Tompkins
county and it comes from a trickle down effect between large urban centers to mid level urban centers. In Ithaca's case
the communities who saw a boom in 2004 were both New York City and Syracuse New York ( adjusted from 2005 ). Moreover,
and since the slow down in New York City was felt in August 2006, Ithaca's present boom can only last until February 2008,
or not unless something else happens to increase the industrial or cultural manufactoring base by at least 16.7 %.
There is a glut in services and those who struggle within the service industrial
base of Ithaca / Tompkins are now feeling in masse " Income Anxieities as a result of this." This has further triggered
additional socio-economic fear, and has impacted negaitve sentiments to anything new, or connections to any terms of upgrading-for
there is no money for either anywhere.
None the less, all this is irrelavant until one central problem is confronted, and if
it is done successfully then Ithaca will emerge into a semi - city state with a certain amount of economic independency (
this also means upgrading Ithaca Hours ). Thus it is of extreme importance that in order for Ithaca politics, its political
nature must mature to a crucial point of connecting to real National and International " proven trends of community
and private sector successes "so that local real economic and social issues must confronted head on and thus you can look
and study the following issues.......

Ithaca's basic political issue:
Raiding by Syracuse.
Normal economic multipler impact of an academic campus economic - capital flow activities ( Faculty
- Staff incomes-purchases of goods and services and contracted arrangements - capital insourcing revenues ) upon the adjacent
communities is on average 2.65 ( Southwick '66 -' 74 and UB School of Management research ' 84,
In an interview ( some years ago ) with the Office of the Vise President for University Relations,
Cornell University " the last assessment of the economic multipler affect upon the greater Ithaca area was 1.12 . " At first this was not believed, until an investigation was made about Ithaca's academic communities' relations with businesses in the Syracuse region. Also, Economic Studies
grad students at Syracuse University were likewise de-briefed, and then came the discovery that Tompkins county academic
expended revenue ( Cornell, Ithaca College and TC3 ) related multipler affects upon the Syracuse community is somewhere around
December 9, 2005 - As a result of the posting of this webpage, October, 2005, more news - hidden
from everyone who should have known. With the slow demise of Ithaca's private sector, the public revenues
( from our taxes ) expended to maintain and publically service ( fire - streets - policing - sewage -etc ) the
Academic Manor houses of Ithaca / Tompkins County ( pardon my Southern twang of labeling both Cornell and Ithaca College
" Academic Manor Houses ) increase proportionately in draining the overall available public revenues general fund.
The figure which was quoted, and if it is true means the increase proportional margins in which Cornell and Ithaca College
has drained from these funds-no matter their contributions to date ( no real fault of their own - by the way ) has
forced the 1.12 multipler impact to go below 1.0.
Mayor Nicols had it right in the first place. WE MAY HAVE A NEGATIVE ECONOMIC IMPACT.
Then the crisis is then realized.
Thus the main economic beneficary of both Cornell University and Ithaca College is Syracuse.
With this alarming difference other avenues were looked into, and what
was discovered it that those who made the purchases of good and services, did not, again, did not,
want to deal with Ithaca's businesses - private sector. In many incidents, the purchasing
agents of various academic departments, as well as University planners would not deal with Ithaca.
Also, Ithaca's product lines were not up to snuff either. There are exceptions IE. Evolution 102, ShangriLa
Something happened back 1975 - 1977, which caused a reverse of positive business - academic relations which triggered the slow demise of Ithaca's private sector.. A socioeconomic vulnerability
emerged of which helped to further trigger Citizens Savings Banking institution's collaspe and
subsequent takeover by M & T Banking . The first and last real victim. Also, there are some real bad attitude problems
too ! This surrounds how an academic community, which is what Ithaca is, is able, or is unable to respond to the academic
insitutition's pedagogic mission-for Ithaca, politically; this is most crucial.
Interviews with past clients have noted this too !
However. Syrcuase has proven to " be " more positive
in how they view Cornell University, and with their up - beat sales pitch, not detracting form either Syracuse University,
nor its struggling football team, The Orangemen - affectionately labled, they are a better sales community.
Syracuse has taken the lead and not
Thus, and with the positive efforts from the office of the various mayors of the city of Syracuse,
for the interest in Syracuse, for example of the city's drive for more and more business was transacted with
Cornell University than here in Ithaca. All at the lost to local merchants. and is reflected
in Ithaca's shrinking tax base.
It is not Syracuse fault either, they
" just " did a better job!
Moreover, and retrospect to several cultural processes, IE. which has, lets say, underminded
the development of the Ithaca Ballet [ see Dance Ithaca Essay WebPage on ], the Ithaca market has continue to be raided for the last 35 years. Very much like the Ithaca Ballet.
This has indicated that in order for a community to economically benefit from it's academic industry
it must apply itself as The Community Leader in upholding the letter, and the more important social, cultural, and economic
results of the pedagogic mission's statement Once the academic institution becomes the assumed ( without a vote ) Community
Leader, then the adjacent community has been enforced as serfs.
It is no longer an issues of political
left or right, rather it is in the manner of money. Where is it going, and how it is interacting with the private issues
of the consumers' interest and personal expectations themselves, and nothing else.

Ithaca Impact: Ithaca's OnLine Business Community News which reflects Ithaca's economy and business
The City of Ithaca, New York needs to grow in order to pay for the municipals which are already forecast
in the city's future. Thus the City of Ithaca needs a major corporate interests to balance out its academic centered
industry / education non-profit institutions.
It was with this understanding, along with the additional comprehension of the real economic impact of academic
institutions on local communities, that the Internet campaign of The City of Ithaca, The Cultural Magnet Destination City
was launched on the internet- a with proven affect.
Mr. Roger M. Christian
By Mr. Roger M. Christian
There are three distinct elements which I considered when looking
at the internet and how can I get the " best " message out in what I publish which best represents the actual intent of my
personality, interests, skills, and knowledge.
One. Fundemental to everything in which I posted / published was
based upon hard empirical evidence. Thus very hard core research was involved in every aspect of any bit, or in this
case " byte " of information, and the additional deliberate action to force introspective personal discoveries,
is the continued some-what selfish motives and passions behind each step taken.
Two. The single aspect of InterCultural Communications as a
very deliberative means to produce events was the essential empowering element which I found out is the primary socicultural
and sociopolitical power platform for the future. The power comes from the transition of time, and of discourse of additional
aspects of human development in which we, as a civilization are slowly becoming aware, which events which are based upon
InterCultural Communications becomes the very formative up-evolutionary behaviorial anthro-developmental traits which triggers
conflict preventioning to occur. And it is exactly here, "Conflict Preventionng where everything else is derived.
The evidence for this truthism is overwhelming.
Three. The actual recognition of the objectiveness of the internet
itself, in as much as everything it views from various serach engine crawlers or spidders,
bugs, has the interesting clean slate encryption - as each webpage is initial judged. Moreover, it is from here, and the further understanding of the various technologies
involved in both hardware and software development that wide -spreading of content was imperative; this demanded higher
and more deeply penitrative knowledge, and as a result I have well worn used at least 7 libraries within the academic central
community of Ithaca, New York. The central factor for this very timely and costly action is that there are distinct
connections to the bugs of the internet, and empirical information-hard
factual content information which triggers higher results..
The internet goes real buggy
over hard and qualified content information. Like a camel to desert oais water well. At first it can not get enough.
Then later its rider is likewise very satisfied as a result. Thus, a deeping and harder introspection of each information
byte produced the qualified results.
Thus you now have the initial three points, and what they eactly
entail, and why everyone should begin to think differently is not only based upon the growing dependency on the growth of
the internet for future prosperity, but that the single physical action we should take is to produce those events which promotes
InterCultural Communications. To do this, we need addtional International Students / Scholars - which according to my
research means an additional 4.8 million addtional International Students / Scholars.
Does the world have them to offer?
The pedagogy of each institution of higher education will likewise
have to adjust their academic curriculum and grading proceedures to meet the resulting discourse resultant evaluations,
faculty evaluations - student- and teaching aspects adjustments, adjunctive financial support structures - and
the needed additional principle America academia will have to adopt to modify its pedagogy as a result.
Then, and only then, will be very clear what Thinking Differently
means both a vision, and the circumstance resultant as a result of making such a commitment.
We have here in the United States millions, as it now seems, of migrate labors who are primiarly
from South America - even though the Asian are now becoming more numerous. This is
What this means, from my own personal point of view is that these hard working peoples should
be out-reached to for these very specific factors:
- Access what are the conditions back in their home country, and from which calibrate a community needs assessments.
- Measure further interests on future jobs developments by the traning needs they wish to recieve while working
in the U.S, and Canada.
- Determine the area of their home community's available resources, and sociocultural and socioeconomic existing
- Confirmed all date base requirements for a think tank resolve in developing career - jobs traning program
to coordinate with loans and credits for future economic development and construction of industry, or services in their
home of origin
Mr. Roger M. Christian.
You should be getting the point now!
The Future Map of Human Consciousness
The Heroic Generation.
At the cutting edge of Du Avant Garde, is that a civilization's development rest solely on the socio - cultural processes of how it nurtures it's youth.
Thus is should be to everyone surprise that something happened previous to the year of 2000. What has happen, is
the development of The Heroic Generation of American youth who are now entering
the 16 to 18 years of age, as of June, 2006.
The Critical aspect of this is based on the clear observation that as the American civilization has
became more complex, there has been increasing equal complex burdens of sociocultrual and sociopolitical adaptions being made
in childrearing techniques by both the parents and children of each family since about 1982 till the present. The forms
of these adaptations have magnified the self - perceptions of diversity of the emerging core of youth even more, than their
parents own development in their own childhoods'; the present impetus of greater self - discoveries as a result.
The newer aspect....
Then the physical impact of hours and hours being spent at home computers and access to the Internet by
children as early as 2 1/2 has likewise created further expansion of the depth of the child's development of their audio
and visual perceptions, increasing their range of needed additional information, and emotional needs during all
the years afterwards; their growing dependencies upon the Internet.
As of now:
Their resulting increased visual and intellect range [ what is still not yet been measure by present early childhood
reseachers - conclusively, and maybe by their present skill research skills unmeasureable ] is far different than
their parents. This component has likewise appeared in experiences of increasing fustrations in their dealings and learning
with their primary and secondary school teachers - who in most instances are unaware of their emerging student traits.
This is the additional impact of computer usage and its ability to influence their own innate drives - while most
of their parents being totally unaware. Furthermore, those who families have home acccess to the Internet have
triggered a unique struggle for this generation of Internet users to find common idenity; this has created
the basis for a different more complex cultural society to emerge within America's mulit - cultural mosaic.
Most amazing is the increasing and voluntary, they are not being forced to commit in using the Internet by their
parents, interdiction of the internet experiences into radicalizing their abstractual intellegence, and near
fantasy visual ranges in conjunction with the mental impacted sociocultural sphere of influences of present early childhood
( per - 12s ) sensory developments by their parent's sociocultural, socioeconomic, and sociospiritual childrearing
efforts [ What the parents are passing on and the advance technique they likewise have used from the radical 1970's.
]. Moreover, their developmental causal extrapolations of rapid access and installation of competant and more highly advanced usage
of computer soft wear technologies, and internet prowless has impacted new adaptations after 12 YO ( and at a critical developmental
stage Piget/Erickson); thereby creating new unkown emotional structures which has their further generated biological
resultant imprints on this population's innate drives. There is no research known within this area either.
" Similar to design technology functions invested in computer advance technologies
and rapid streaming of mass information within the growing massive information insourcing spiders of the Internet (
here before never used by previous generations ) have had a radical impact which are largely the additional unknowns
confronted by todays parents and unfortunately and similarly by present University educators as well. They, " you " [ if " you " fall into this
generation ] are now the outsourcing resultants"
Now, historically, now, this process has created new emotional and intellectual structures and have been observed
to be firmly inserted into this generations' overall personality traits which is generated by every single successful
experience during time durations [ after an unknown quanity of time expended ] related computer access obtained by the
child user. In dealing with present forms of how children are integrated into society this has created a separate
intellect, nonetheless, and thus forming new resultant and yet unkown " impacted innate intellectual drives which
are increasingly creating emotional technocentered more adpated " new corridors."
Presently this has been recently touched on, largely in their emerging emotional
fields, by Presidential Canidate Barack Obama. His campaign use of the Internet and who, the users,
he has been getting his political message to, and likewise his contributions from.
Part conclusion ....
Simply the causal resultant of increased usage and depth of range of
their nervous systems has result in a different intellectual population.
It is what is contained within in this new corridor is their main future
focus of unity. How internet experiences have impacted their own personal, and individual bio - spheres, and the resultant
increased locations and more diverse usage of their brain stimulus is still even the greater unknown - even to themselves.
Thus and unlike Gertude Stein quote about the " Lost Generation " We
now have the " Heroic Generation. " In a historic review we have had Heroic Generations born in 1745, 1832, 1876,
1919, 1946, and then 1982.
What is even more surprising is that they have caught upon certain indenity
ethos which is in its initial stages of social and cultural evolution - development; and are just now being defined by
themselves, while others outsiders are in the dark. Moreover, the socio-spirituality of this genertion is their special gifts.
The result in art, music, and others is just now appearing at their other
This is leading us to the....
The impact of which will be felt culturally around the year 2016. Politically
is the greater unknown, can Barack Obama tap into it? No one knows...
Alert - Continues: There were corrections, nonetheless, there is something within
the Cornell Server which disrupts outside websites, and world wide rankings of Google.Com within Zip 14850, 14851, 14853 (
? ). Why? Google crawlers have been modified and adpated to local zip codes,
as a result everything locally became more vulnerable to the Cornell's server with regards to page rankings.
What most are not aware of, in regards to the Cornell server, is that every webpage this server hosts is linked
internally, and thus there are power rankings surges as a result everytime a webpage is clicked on.
The Ithaca Public Policy Forum
Ithaca Socials [ Forum
] - membership required to plan non - academic socials .
One of the elements in solution finding which is now being explored can be found on the Academia - Cornell / Ithaca College webpage
. The other is the private initiative to promote the city of Ithaca, New York as the Cultural Magnet Destination City
of the Tri - State region of New York, Pennsylvania, and Ohio .
Academic Slavery of Ithaca, New York:
In the absence of alternative industries to those of academia, which were lost during 1966 - 1974, Ithaca's
sociocultural and sociopolitical environments have slip'ed in to a dream like state representitive of academic freshman behavoirsims.
A form of collectivism has also emerged not as a poltical force, but rather as a protective network to garde itself from the
outside world; and in many instances to stop top flight service professionals from getting locally
established. What is more alarming is that the general population really does not care anymore, and
it is why which should alarm those who still have grasp of normal realities which exist outside of Ithaca.
It is under this strange form of collectivism from which the real leftists have completely disavow themsleves of, an ethos of Anti - Semitism and Racism now exist in the
Ask yourselve these leading questions. What happened to the Tompkins County Chapter of the N.A.A.C.P.,
and where are the Zionist organizations; the frontline advocates of liberation and freedom. They were both chased out
of Ithaca during the same era 1966 - 1974 along with the bulk of Ithaca's private industries, and the upper middle class structure
they contributed and established. Both ( all ) are linked.
It is how Ithaca was able to get rid of the N.A.A.C.P. which mirrors every other institution-white controled-and
under the lip - service banner of Ithaca 's Liberalisms in which whites
tell blacks how to be black, and from which the leading experts in being black are seldom black. Thus the missing component
of a local black community agenda. Thus Ithaca is one of the leading racists communities of New York State, and possibly
the entire Northeast, in which the emplaced form of countering a black agenda from ever emerging is the racism of inclusion,
seculsion, and delusion ( sorry Jessy ).
It was the strategic loss of private sector industries, the N.A.A.C.P, and Zionist organizations which triggered
the loss of Ithaca's investment base as many additional talented individuals fled as a result. Moreover, as I have heard
many who called themselves Liberal state-that both the N.A.A.C.P. amd Zionist
organizations are racists.
In the final focus of local racists tendencies and to further look in to this, you should look at available
commentaries on the racists history of Savannah, Georgia. It is from the available published resources
of this community which will give you the perceptual skills necessary to detect the ongoing tragedy which
is evolving in Ithaca.
It is also under this cover that slow corruption in the Arts now exist, and that religious insitutions are
next to be chased out if they resist. This has triggered interest from two organized crime families in the New
York City region. One from Queens, and other, the Russians at Brighton Beach-even though a Rochester family has dips
on Ithaca. The words of Christ and Ha-Shem are increasing being shuned, while Allah is increasing being praised.
With addition destain of reality the general population of single adults who are mostly frustrated in
realizing their ends as being failures, have pused this community into a form of heterophobia [ A dissident form of sociosexuality
coming largely from degenerate heterosexuals ]. All the while the conservatives hide further their cowardly nature-the
fear of being sued; thus the lost of old money.
All of which causing many to be dependent upon the scraps on the academic table of both Cornell and Ithaca
Lastly and saddly there are service dependent families who have spouses serving in the Persian Gulf
who are also forced to be dependent on local food pantries to make ends meet.
If none of these are seriously addressed then we will have to contend with the additional forms of an expansion
of poverty along with established organize crimes gangs and families.
There is a need for a moral center! and Social Contract!
Searching for a Moral Contract: March 26, 2006 report:
There are two MSN groups, and a Website which has been created to attract and poll
the local dacadent/degenerative nature within the Ithaca region from which to obtain additional information and what to advise as a result. These internet items are what I call
fly-paper sites. And very much flies, those of a diviant nature have already interactively acted over the internet lines
and indicates a degenerative cancer growing within Ithaca.
In contrast, a whole series of cultural democractic websites and internet groups have also been created.
Thus direct comparisons have been measured and more distinct perception has also evolved.
What everyone should be advised of is that:
Ithaca has Massive complex sociocultural perception of itself, and as
a result, a lot of people who reside are vague when it comes to focus.
Especially when it comes to conclusion and term....
This has given rise to the term of
The present sociopolitical ethos of Ithaca.
What this also entails from my own point of view, and what I will
recommended ~ promote as a result is for you, you who are reading this, to immediately reconnect to your family's traditional form of worship. This also goes
for those who for what ever reason have chosen not to believe in a " G - D ". still should associate
yourselves for purely sociocultural reasons.
If you would take my advise, I would encourage everyone
to study " The Torah " in its Jewish socialcultural and sociospiritual perspective.
This note of encouragement goes double for those who are Not - Jewish of all ethnic backgrounds.
Thus, and as a result you note the critical development of moral perceptual skills ( not necessarily an
endorsement of practicing everything Jewish ) in very personal way. It is the resulting intellegent development of skills
which lends to the deep personal development of qualify and social behavior in order to achive moral focus.
This means at the sametime general knowledge by the entire Ithaca community at hand of The Thirteen Princeples of Jewish Faith ( M' - Ha'Rambam
Iggertim T ' Yemen ) . As your first knowledge-and
it is that point in which I am stressing. Thus you study of The Torah will be firmly established in good
earth. The result is the establishment of a sociocultural foundation necessary for Ithaca
to grow beyond the present limitation. Please note: I did not mentioned sociospirituial foundation.
Though from my own personal faith, I fondly wish.
Another part of the moral contract:
Economic and Futures Development:
Something new. Developing a veterans' credit union, and how to build one and what havng one can
be of extreme value for those who are veterans. Moreover, and with 43,800 residence of Tompkins county being veteran
related [ someone in the immediate family is a veteran ], this is almost a must. Especially when you consider this population
segment in the largest permenant voting block [ est. yr. 2000 @ 68% ] in
all of Central, New York. This is real potential economic power by a group of individuals who are not lax when it comes
to hard work or sacrafice-real people.
|Ithaca's labor Leader: Pete Meyers.|
The Tompkins County Workers' Center has embarked on a critical campaign that is keenly
focused on organizing with the workers that are most directly affected by low wages; lack of health care; lack of the ability
to organize for ourselves in the workplace; a lack of worker's rights; and a lack of simple free speech.
: In this view, all that is mentioned above,
I am promoting a Proud to Serve campaign - to touch back to my own traditional base. First effort ( non-political
)- Persian Gullf Veterans.
