Sandra Rinomato

Sandra Rinomato was selected out of hundreds of potential realtors and hosts to present a new reality real estate television show for HGTV Canada in March 2006. With no previous television experience or grooming, her show “Property Virgins” came out of the gate in the top two real estate shows for the broadcaster. After viewing only five rough cut episodes the show was sold to HGTV US who
commissioned 26 episodes for season two. In addition, for its second season 2007, Property Virgins has become the highest rated show on the Canadian network.

Sandra’s seventeen articles and blog on attracts much attention with viewers having discussions among themselves, discussing the subject matter of the articles, asking questions and praising Sandra.

Sandra also continues to service her local clients with continued success in the real estate arena. Sandra achieved President’s Circle status, an elite award within Coldwell Banker in 2006. As a manager and coach for realtors she increased the success of many realtors with coaching sessions and late night phone calls. Achieving top unit production within her branch was no easy task while shooting her TV series for nine out of the twelve months. During this time she also solicited a new location with better street exposure for that branch, bringing the proposal to the Broker/Owner who was reluctant to make the move. Championing for the entire company took three months of persistence and diligence but once she sets her mind to something Sandra rarely gives up. The move has proved to be favorable for all

Sandra recently completed her first book, Realty Check: The Real Scoop on Real Estate and is in talks with publishers to bring it out on the Canadian market in early 2008. With two full-time careers and a family Sandra makes time for other important issues in her community. She takes great pride in having raised over $30,000 for Breast Cancer Research through her Ladies Lousy Golfer Tournament, and has participated in other charitable endeavors such as Baskets for Women’s Shelters, Coats for Kids, Breakfast with Santa. Sandra Rinomato has taken a career that began with Rookie of the Year (branch) to top 5% Coldwell Banker representative world wide.

As she built her career and family, Sandra had to deal with deteriorating health due to a congenital heart condition. In 2004 Sandra underwent open heart surgery to treat her condition. With a new lease on life, Sandra has broadened her reach to millions with a highly successful reality real estate television show. Enjoying family and friends over a big bowl of pasta is her favorite past time, stating that her cooking is better the hungrier you are.

Jonathan Pontell

Jonathan Pontell is a television director, producer and editor.

A native of New York City, Pontell attended the School of Visual Arts, studying film and television. After graduation, he worked as a film editor on features such as The Exorcist and long-form documentaries for both CBS News and public television.[1]

In 1981 Pontell relocated to Los Angeles and edited episodic television series including Hill Street Blues, Hooperman, Northern Exposure, and Moonlighting. Working on L.A. Law, he began a 19-year association with David E. Kelley. Pontell served as director and producer on Picket Fences and The Practice. From 1997 to 2000, he also directed multiple episodes of Ally McBeal. Pontell produced and directed for David E. Kelley on Boston Public from 2000 to 2004.

Pontell has received multiple awards, including four Emmy Awards, two Golden Globes and two George Foster Peabody Awards.[1]

Generation Jones is a term coined by Jonathan Pontell to describe the generation of people born between 1954 and 1965. The term is used primarily in English-speaking countries. [1][2][3]

Jonathan Pontell defined Generation Jones as a distinct concept[4] Its members are still usually identified with either Baby Boomers or Generation X'ers.

The name “Generation Jones” has several connotations, including a large anonymous generation, a “keeping up with the Joneses” competitiveness and the slang word "jones" or “jonesing”, meaning a yearning or craving.[5][6][7][8][9] It is said that Jonesers were given huge expectations as children in the 1960s, and then confronted with a different reality as they came of age in the 1970s, leaving them with a certain unrequited, jonesing quality.

Super Freaky Beastie Sabotage

Found 3 unlabeled CDs in the dirt in front of my home living room window. One of them is a collection of CD songs. Two of the songs are 3 of my "all time favorite" songs! Super Freak!, Sabotage!, and Beethoven 3 Syn! (Rick James and Beastie Boys) Using my PC I found some other very interesting files on the other 2 CDRs. "all time favorite" are lyrics in Super Freak.

THIS MORNING, MANY OF OF OUR DISHES, BOWLS, AND PLATES FELL OUT OF THE CABINETS AND BROKE INTO THOUSANDS OF PIECES ALL OVER THE ENTIRE KITCHEN FLOOR! I took out a bowl, the the shelf collapsed, and then one by one, 7 Corelle bowls and plates rapidly started falling and breaking on the counters and floors. The explosions were very load, and left thousands of shards everywhere. We locked up to protect Colbert in the office. Our cabinets are not good, and our kitchen is too small. I did not purchase this condo with a wife in mind. 7 of my Corelle plates and bowls broke today. The craver has happily purchased the long wanted new complete replacement Corelle dinnerware sets for 8 today. We purchased 2 boxes of dinnerware sets for 4 today. Of the original service for 4 from my family in 1979, only three of the plates, and zero bowls survive. Combinations of different patterns, of incomplete sets, of the same shape and size were added in 2005 from family. This handled service for up to 11, but now 8 at best. My existing dinnerware has been fine for me. I did not know that they all had to match, and be of consistent amounts. My priority has always been the ability to get food that can be put on the plates and bowls. I hope that after being unemployed for 15 months and a college student, that I will be able to continue doing so for the years to come until maybe I can earn money. However, I can always sell the old ones on eBay. 5/24/10 Update: Recieved a $32 refund from K-mart, for the 2 16pc sets of Corelle dinnerware he bought Friday for $130! That is 25% off a purchase I have been protesting against for more than a year! His household already has 3 other sets of dishes.

Another New York City Jewish Liberal Woman Jonser, who will exterminate the W.A.S.P.s in the Supreme court to 3 women, 3 Jews, and 4 NYC natives. IT DOES NOT GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS! This happily leaves Staten Island unrepresented.

Eyesore of I-4

The primary reasons the structure is a hideous nuisance, is there are no other buildings visible for miles, and it has been an offensive mess since 2000! For most of my life, I have not been a critic of style. There must be pathetic zoning laws to allow such a monstrosity. Is there someway the public can demand its destruction? This is an idol, that is worshiped as "Majesty" by Christians. They seem to exploit the poor people's money for publicity. This egotistical, vain, audacious corporate cult, forces obnoxious self promotion in everyone's faces. The premise of building this by begging for charity, is disgusting. Typical views I have seen on the Web and on my Face-book Page are shown below this following article.

The Mistake by the Lake - Will the Majesty Building Ever Be Completed? Published November 07, 2008 by Megan Fletcher

There is an 18-story elephant in Altamonte Springs that city officials do not want to talk about. This 18-story elephant is officially called the Majesty Building, and the CEO of the SuperChannel dubbed it "a monument to Christian charity," in a quote from an Orlando Business Journal article. But, to many Altamonte Springs residents it has become known as "The Mistake by the Lake."

The Majesty building sits on Central Parkway near the Interstate Four overpass as an empty glass shell that has been under construction since 2000. Many residents wonder as they drive by the unfinished landmark what is taking so long to finish the project, it has been eight years already and there is no projected completion date that has not already passed.

The building is owned by the local Orlando Christian television station The SuperChannel, and the reason the project has taken 8 years and counting to complete is the station has vowed to build the project debt free using donations from viewers and support from business claiming a portion of the office space on the buildings floors five to 17.

While an admirable idea, the station has taken a long time to raise the millions of dollars necessary for this monumental project, the mere length of time taken to finish the building has cost donors and investors more in property taxes and building costs than the interest would have cost them on a loan for the original $40 million that the TV station projected it would need to complete the building.

The property taxes paid on the $100 thousand plot of land in 2008 were $16,864. While taking into account that property taxes have increased since the first year of the project, the SuperChannel has paid at least $110 thousand in taxes over the past eight years; an amount that is greater than the total value of the land the building sits on.

Moreover, Bowers told The Orlando Business Journal back in 2004 that the project was costing the SuperChannel an estimated $500 thousand to $1 million per month. Tack on inflation for the past four years, and that amount has surely increased.

So let's do the math with the figures that are readily available. If $750 thousand per month over eight years is added to the total estimated amount paid in property taxes the Majesty Building has cost approximately $72.1 million and growing. That is nearly twice the originally estimated amount.

If the building was completed promptly with the use of a $50 million loan that carried a fixed rate mortgage of 8.39 percent, the average interest rate for a mortgage in March 2000, the station would have paid about $4.2 million in interest. That would mean the total project would have cost in the ballpark of $50.5 million leaving room for property taxes.

Assuming the math is accurate, the decision to build the Majesty building debt free was a $21.6 million mistake that the charity of Christians has been forced to bear, and that price tag will only continue to get bigger the longer it takes to complete the project.

Residents in the area will have to continue to deal with the eyesore in center of town until the SuperChannel can somehow raise millions of dollars from its viewers in the face of one of the greatest economic downturns our country has faced. With that said, even if the SuperChannel decided to go ahead with a loan to get the project finally completed, the credit freeze would stop them.

That strange looking thing on I-4 in Altamonte Springs? I think it is called the "Super Channel" something. Since I've been here, I've not seen any building going on and have noticed some broken windows in the past week. It's nasty when the sun hits it and blinds you! Did someone start something they can't finish? Does anyone think they will finish the building? I think I've seen a few broken windows. No activity at all. What a bloody waste. :( It is still ugly. Wonder what will ever happen? Ah funny, I went passed it on Saturday, first time I'd been that way in ages and I was like "dam they still have't finished building that thing!!" and drove by that stupid thing again. What an eyesore! CH, that thing is commonly called "the I4 Eyesore" on a local radio station. I have to pass it everyday. Yuck! If the donors could see it now, they'd take back their donations! That thing is just so ugly! ER, yeah, that is the ugliest thing I've ever seen. I never see any construction going on and folks are breaking windows now. Did they run out of money? You mean that thing north of Altamonte Springs that has a big 1/4 circle or arc as a roof? That is an architectural monstrosity. ' Back in Florida and drove by that stupid thing again. What an eyesore!

From Luke Chapter 14... Jesus is speaking:

28) 'When any of you wants to build a high house, you sit down first and see how much it will cost. You want to see if you have enough money to finish it.
29) If you do not have enough money, you will not be able to finish it after you have made the foundation. Then all the people who see it will laugh at you. 30) They will say, "This man started to build a house and could not finish it."

David Danger McIntosh: It looks like a giant pair of electric clippers to me. Like the kind you buzz hair with. Every day I saw that thing I couldn't help but imagining it being used by some large religious robot to shave the sins of Altamonte Springs away. Rachael Sibley: that thing is awful.
Robin Axelrod Matheson It looks like a giant air vent.

Sick of the S-ity

After seeing Sex and the City movie for the first time yesterday, I expect SATC-2 to be about four ShopaWhore Chicks. I saw a scene where they are alone in a desert, which is hardly a "city". Sex must be pretty "shity" there. I expect SATC-4 (whores) to be even (wh)more redundant. The moral of the first movie is: Dont fuck men, and they will not fuck you. The fourth SATC move should be sub=titled "Four Play because most of them are married". The language used in this posting was inspired by Bill Mahr, on HBO. I greatly enjoyed the SATC series on HBO. It focused on empowered women, which is good. The movie sensationalizes the worst characteristics of the TV series, focusing on Status and money, and treating men badly.

Bill Maher

William "Bill" Maher, Jr.(pronounced /ˈmɑr/; born January 20, 1956) is an American stand-up comedian, television host, social critic, political commentator, author, and actor. Before his current role as the host of HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher, Maher hosted a similar late-night talk show called Politically Incorrect originally on Comedy Central and later on ABC.

Bill is my favorite celebrity who most represents my views, values, opinions, and political views.

Maher is known for his political satire and sociopolitical commentary. His commentaries target a wide swath of topics: religion, politics, bureaucracies of many kinds, political correctness, the mass media, greed among people and persons in positions of high political and social power, the lack of intellectual curiosity of the electorate among many topics. He supports the legalization of marijuana and gay marriage and serves on the board of PETA.[1] He is also a critic of religion and is an advisory board member of Project Reason. Maher is number 38 on Comedy Central's 100 greatest stand-ups of all time.[2]

Lake Mary Rocks

“Rock N' Roll ain't dead. It’s Alive!” Indeed it is. It’s Alive are a four-piece rock band from Lake Mary, Florida and their latest single "Pieces" should do little more than completely blow you away. The song was released digitally at the beginning of this month and will no doubt be a resounding success.

When listening to "Pieces" you would be forgiven for thinking there were a few members of Linkin Park in this band, but remarkably there isn’t. As the first few seconds emerge, electronic drums quietly beat away and a typically Linkin Park piano riff creeps in. The verse then builds up to a huge chorus which wouldn’t have looked out of place on Linkin Park’s multi-platinum debut, Hybrid Theory. The chorus is quite simply epic and what really defines this band are the wonderful vocals of Zach Webb. I hate to make even more comparisons, but Webb isn’t far off the high pitched raspy voice that Chester Bennington possesses in anthems such as "Crawling".

Admittedly there are a few similarities between It’s Alive and Linkin Park, but make no mistake It’s Alive aren’t a rip off band and far from it. They clearly have talent and if their debut album Human Resources comes out with other bone crushing tunes like "Pieces" then we are in for a treat.
