The Neil S. Siskind Nature Preserve is over 7 acres of environmentally-pristine waterfront land in a magnificent setting along New York’s majestic Hudson River. The Preserve includes a variety of species of animal and plant life, and is a precious example of the thoughtful maintenance of New York’s priceless open spaces. The land’s uses are limited to outdoor recreation such as hiking and climbing, and the study of ecology, nature and land use. The Neil S.

The Siskind Law Firm stands against Cyberbullying.
Fight Cyberbullying! We reject using the Internet to embarrass, harass and attack people. Teenagers harassing other teens on the Internet is a shameful activity that has led to teen suicide. Adults who write online attacks upon other adults as a way to exact revenge or try to embarrass people exhibit the lowest form of social behavior, especially when there are children in the home for whom an example should be set.
The unprecedented publishing ability offered by the Internet provides an outlet for angry, vindictive and simply mean people who lack impulse control and respect for others or for themselves. Monitor your children and control your own behavior online so that the fabric of society and basic social order in our communities is maintained. As readers, always remember, mean posts that you are reading were written by the kind of people who would even do such a thing. That should tell you a lot about a person’s character and veracity. Teen bullying is unacceptable. Bullying and harassing people at any age, in any medium is outrageous and there is no room in society for Internet bullies- or bullies of any sort. When a person posts attacks about a business on the Internet, it probably shows why the business had difficulty dealing with the person in the first place. Try to be nice out there.
There are organizations dedicated to stopping bullying and harassment via online forums. http://www.cybersmile.org/who-we-are. The laws are staring to catch-up with the problem: http://www.uncmirror.com/news/view.php/861954/Cyberbully-be-warned/
Check out this great anti-Internet-bullying website. We can all work together to stop the meanness on social media, on Yelp, on TripAdvisor, on the Internet, and in schools. It is all meanness by people on other people:
Support Paralyzed Veterans of America
For more than 68 years, Paralyzed Veterans of America has been on a mission to change lives and build brighter futures for our seriously injured heroes—to empower these brave men and women with what they need to achieve the things they fought for: freedom and independence.
The organization was founded by a band of service members who came home from World War II with a spinal cord injury. They returned to a grateful nation, but also to a world with few solutions to the challenges they faced. They made a decision not just to live, but to live with dignity as contributors to society. They created Paralyzed Veterans of America, an organization dedicated to veterans service, medical research and civil rights for people with disabilities.
If you want to achieve a great deal of things in life,
you have to try hard to achieve a great deal of things in life.
It’s the only way.
