"F*** Yuppies" Vandalism at renovated St. Roch Market in New Orleans May 1, 2015 (90-secs)
Video by Richard Hoefer, shot May 1, 2015 #NOLA. I'd made plans to meet a friend for lunch here, but she emailed saying St. Roch's had been vandalized with paint and smashed windows. But they were open, we went. This is what I saw; it was my first time there since its new incarnation. Notes: (1) Vandals were ID'd racially as white from surveillance cams. (2) Prices for some of the food here is pretty high, for example Oysters on the halfshell. I would not call it easily affordable. The "Fuck Yuppies" grafitti suggests a disparity between "old" St. Roch's local market and this more upscale place. (3) Inside, for the 4 hours I was there, the customers were, I would estimate 90% white. But I don't know the composition or demographics of the neighborhood at large.

A member of the market's management company told NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune earlier Friday that the vandals smashed 18 hurricane-strength windows and covered the front and side of the historic building in pink and blue paint. The words "F---yuppies" and "Yuppy = bad" were painted on the side. The NOPD said the vandals – three men and two women – struck around 2:20 a.m. and caused more than $20,000 in damages.

New Orleans: Recovery or Removal?
Ten years after Hurricane Katrina, a new documentary from The Laura Flanders Show and teleSUR English explores the race, class and gender outlines of the reconstruction of New Orleans. At least seventy-one billion dollars in federal money has been spent. But has every opportunity been seized to bring back not just the place, but its people, so they’re stronger and healthier than before? We explore, from the grassroots, systemic changes in housing, economic development, and policing. How have federal, state and city policies affected the people of New Orleans? Lieutenant General Russell Honoré was put in charge of military rescue efforts after Hurricane Katrina. What he saw was a man-made disaster, caused by politicians under control of the oil and gas industry. “Our problem is, because of the damage that has been left by the oil and gas industry, we have less wetlands today than we had 20 years ago,” he says. “It's been supported by Congress, multiple presidents in the White House, and all our governors. We are the second largest energy producer in America and we're the second poorest state. The state has been looted.” “We've got 52% unemployment as it relates to African-American males, but we're experiencing an economic boom,” explains New Orleans city council president Jason Williams. “Our major industry is tourism; hospitality, restaurants, hotels, motels. The folks who are working those jobs in the kitchen, making up the beds, cooking the food, those folks are the working poor in this town. It's just for generations they have not shared in the revenue in those industries.” Oliver Thomas was city council president at the time of Katrina, and was on track to be the city’s next mayor, until he went to federal prison for accepting bribes. He says that the recovery took the wrong direction from the beginning. “Our mayor and too many of our business people wanted a market based recovery, and that's what we got. We should have fought for a community-based recovery. We should have brought our working class people back, set up temporary housing, schools, and medical for them, then build from there. Since we didn't do that, that's why we're struggling, that's why a ten year recovery will probably end up being a twenty, for some, if it every happens.” Sean Cummings, a developer that has helped reshape New Orleans’ downtown, takes a different perspective. He says that the city is improving, and federal dollars were well spent. “I think the city's brand has been extended worldwide, even more deeply into the consciousness of people than it had been before,” he says. “All sorts of young people coming here, filmmakers, furniture makers, glass casters, folks in the film industry, entrepreneur startup companies, they want to live in these historic neighborhoods.” He says rising rents are a sign of an improving economy. “I think you just have to look at it a little bit perhaps broader geographic perspective where folks are displaced. Where actually are they displaced? Does it not make it a more robust community?” Toya Lewis is part of an organization called Stand With Dignity that has been fighting for jobs and opportunities for New Orleans poorest residents. As a former public housing resident, Toya says that her former community was torn down in the name of profit. “The developers wanted to tear down public housing for money. It's money, it's greed. It has nothing to do with humanity or beautifying anything, because if that was the case, they could have replaced what existed,” she says. “One of the biggest things that's necessary in decriminalizing blackness is creating a equitable economy,” she adds. The film is produced and directed by Jordan Flaherty and executive produced by Laura Flanders and teleSUR English. Story producer is Marin Sander Holzman; camera by Joshua J. Bagnall, Melisa Cardona, Jonathan Klett, Abdul Aziz, and CrossPond Productions. Edited by Anna Barsan, Rebecca Scheckman and Jonathan Klett. Score by Drop Electric, with additional music by TBC Brass Band. Translation by Cynthia Garza.

Hurricane Katrina: 10 Years Later
The National Insurance Crime Bureau released segments of a five-part documentary video that provides first-hand recollections of NICB employees and law enforcement personnel as they reflect on their roles in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Widespread destruction, NICB responds While Katrina impacted parts of Alabama, Florida and Mississippi, its most widespread destruction occurred in Louisiana in and around New Orleans. After making landfall on August 29, 2005, Katrina’s heavy rainfall and significant storm surge caused breaches in a number of the levees protecting New Orleans from Lake Pontchartrain. As a result of those levee failures, roughly 80 percent of New Orleans was underwater by August 31. In terms of property damage, Hurricane Katrina was the most costly on record with insured losses estimated at over $41 billion*. Part of that figure came from insurance claims on more than 300,000 vehicles damaged or destroyed by Katrina—vehicles that presented an attractive opportunity for fraud. Recognizing the unprecedented number of vehicles that were flooded or otherwise damaged from Katrina, NICB dispatched teams to the region and established the Gulf Coast Task Force (GCTF) which operated from two locations: Baton Rouge, La. and Mobile, Ala. Over the next several months, NICB personnel from all over the United States were rotated through the GCTF where they worked side-by-side with state and local law enforcement officers in identifying and cataloging the thousands of damaged vehicles that littered every part of New Orleans and Mobile—and most points in between—in Nature’s random display of destruction. As the vehicle inventory process took shape, GCTF personnel had some time to pursue allegations of insurance fraud, which NICB was receiving on its hotline almost from the moment Katrina made landfall. Even as search and recovery efforts were underway, some saw opportunity to exploit tragedy for personal and illicit gain. NICB investigated everything from bogus claims for flooded vehicles that were nowhere near the storm area to yachts being scuttled by their owners, but blamed on Katrina so they could collect an insurance payoff. The birth of VINCheck To prevent unsafe flood vehicles from entering the commerce stream disguised as legitimate used vehicles, NICB created the “Katrina Flood Vehicle Database.” This database was populated with the vehicle identification numbers (VINs) of every Katrina-damaged vehicle that was insured by one of NICB’s 1,100 member insurance companies. Although initially developed to more efficiently share data with law enforcement, state fraud bureaus, motor vehicle departments and insurance companies, NICB realized that allowing consumers to have free access to this data was the best way to help them protect themselves from making an expensive—and potentially life-threatening—flood vehicle purchase. Within two months of Katrina’s landfall, the Katrina Flood Vehicle Database was opened to the public. As this free consumer protection grew in popularity and usage, its name evolved into VINCheck. With the new name and with the cooperation of participating insurance companies, VINCheck not only identified flood vehicles, but any vehicle that had been declared a total loss, salvage, or was an unrecovered stolen vehicle. Since its creation, VINCheck has been the most visited page on the NICB.org website. From January 1, 2009, through December 31, 2014, more than 5 million VINs have been searched through VINCheck. The hurricanes of 2005, of which Katrina was the Queen of Destruction, challenged all levels of government, as well as state and local law enforcement, the insurance industry and disaster relief agencies. The lessons learned from Katrina helped government and non-government officials deal with another mega storm when 2012’s Sandy devastated the Eastern Seaboard and other inland areas. While natural disasters are an unfortunate reality of life, we can understand them. To some extent, we can prepare for them and mitigate their damage. But when ill-intentioned people use these events to commit fraud against a population already reeling from a disaster, they will eventually attract law enforcement’s attention with NICB agents at their side. As we did after Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, Wilma, Ike, and Sandy, NICB’s nationwide distribution of investigative and analytical resources are poised to deter, detect and defeat acts of insurance fraud that would cause further harm to the legitimate victims of catastrophes.

If we don’t laugh, we cry | Virginia Saussy | TEDxNewOrleans
The events following Hurricane Katrina inspired action and determination - as well as the need for traditional New Orleans-style fun. The continuation of Mardi Gras, a true New Orleans tradition, was necessary and an important custom that stimulated laughter and joy through satire and parody. Virginia Saussy joined Sucre, a New Orleans based Sweet Boutique and confection studio, to strengthen the administrative management, organize fulfillment and fine-tune sales and marketing efforts. Within 18 months her work led to a 300% increase in expansion of distribution. In her tenure at Mignon Faget, Ltd., she enabled company growth through strong branding and relationship marketing, taking sales from $1.3 million to over $13 million and saving the company from tragedy after Hurricane Katrina. After the storm, Virginia used her skills to rebrand a devastated New Orleans neighborhood, establishing the Broadmoor area as the come-back story of the city. She is a founding member, officer, and the creative force behind The Krewe of Muses. Virginia Saussy has been honored with awards including Gambit Magazine’s 40 Under 40 (2002), Newcomb College Outstanding Alumnae (2006), and Top Female Achiever by New Orleans Magazine (2012) and is a frequent speaker at area universities. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

Ten Years After Katrina, New Orleans Protected From Future Floods
When Hurricane Katrina barreled into New Orleans a decade ago, the city's levees were unable to hold back water from Lake Pontchartrain, resulting in massive flooding. As levees broke and pumping stations failed, nearly 80% of the city was flooded. Now, ten years and $18 billion later, levees have been rebuilt and new pumping stations are under construction. Some of the billions of dollars in federal aid that made its way to New Orleans after that devastating storm went to Jefferson Parish, now home to what will be one of the world's largest pumping stations. 'We'll be able to pump an Olympic size swimming pool full in five seconds. So it gives you an idea of the pumping capacity of this facility,' said Elton Lagasse, an at large council member of Jefferson Parish. The facility is expected to be completed in 2017. Right now, temporary pumps that were built after Katrina remain in place. Lagasse said the community is far more prepared for any future hurricanes. 'They have completely re-leveed this whole system, redone all of our pump stations,' said Lagasse. 'All of our pump stations now have back-up generators, they have safe houses where the pump operators will stay. They are 35 feet off the ground and can withstand 250 mile per hour winds. So we are in a much better position than we were before as far as hurricane protection and as far as flood protection.'

The evil plot to was planned in advance to flood and destroy the 9th ward or the city! The way I see it they did not need the Hurricane to destroy the 9th ward the city the hurricane was just a false flag! NO ONE will ever convince me it was not a planned event! What do they have--about two week lead time that a hurricane will likely end up in the gulf? I know as sure as I can be, that they knew the plan to empty the Lake into the 9th would work. There is strong consensus among scientists that man can affect direction and speed to some unknown extent, and Katrina, followed by (can't remember the 2n'd one's name) could cloud the truth and the media could spin anything it was told. They deliberately tested martial law there, and the effect of breaking up and scattering a close-knit people all over several states, further weakening their will to resist such treatment. I was sickened as their plans unfolded, and I couldn't do a thing. I'll never forgive that government for that, and I'll never get over it, either. It broke my heart to see what evil men can do. Please tell me you get it!!!!

Some Wilmington Shops Are Staying Open Ahead Of Hurricane Florence
According to Reuters, Wilmington North Carolina is closing for business ahead of Hurricane Florence. Most of the city has been boarded up and deserted, after a mass evacuation order was issued for the Carolinas. But a bodega, a deli, and a Waffle House are still open in the historic district as the storm looms offshore. Seymour Joseph, who owns The Gourmet Market, plans to keep his convenience store open each day of the storm until 3 a.m. to offer snacks and basic supplies. Brad Corpening is also waiting out the storm at his restaurant, Chops Deli, to preserve his stock of ham, roast beef and cheese in case the electricity goes out. Corpening has used his ice machine to stockpile more than 400 pounds ice to keep his goods from spoiling. Shayne Culver, who manages the local Waffle House, said they aren't closing, but they will be offering a limited menu during the storm. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/domesticNews/~3/uS7S3Y5n2-U/as-florence-draws-near-historic-wilmington-n-c-puts-on-brave-face-idUSKCN1LT028 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit Business using http://wochit.com

Aftermath: Hurricane Harvey _ Surveying The Damage, EP3
On August 25th, 2017, Houston, Texas prepared for what would end up being the worst and costliest natural disaster in U.S. history, estimated at a cost of $190 billion+. That's more costly than Hurricane Katrina and Superstorm Sandy combined. Bringing in 25 trillion gallons of rain water and 130mph CAT4 hurricane force winds, Houston and Texas stands strong as we prepare to rebuild a bigger and better city and state. • • • On Wednesday, September 6, 2017, my long-time friend Dale Moody landed in Houston, Texas, from Portland, Oregon, to help me clean and demo my house. After picking him up from IAH airport, we headed straight for the house to survey the damage that Hurricane Harvey and the Addicks Reservoir release had caused. The flood water breached my home on Monday night, August 28th, and didn't recede until the following Tuesday, September 5th. This Vlog entry shows just how foul flood water can be when it sits, for what would be longer then a week, in your home. Location: Concord Bridge Subdivision, Harris County, Houston, Texas Caused by: Flooding due to the controlled release of the Addicks Reservoir following Hurricane Harvey.

World Animal Awareness Society - A Best In America Charity, Top Rated Non Profit and "Best of CFC #80876 Brief Origin Story: On Sunday September 4, 2005 I found myself beginning a new life's mission as I left Michigan for New Orleans and I began to document much of the animal rescue efforts immediately following Hurricane Katrina. What I discovered? An entire world I had no idea existed and one most people never pay attention to: the world of animal rescue. I found people risking everything, sometimes their lives, to rescue these animals, saving other peoples pets. (USA Federal employees can pledge to World Animal Awareness Society - a "Best of CFC" #80876 here: http://www.bestcfc.org/charitypage.php?ein=27-1918794) This journey set me on a path to discover/uncover the many ways the World Animal Awareness Society & WA2S Films can assist people. From rescuing people's pets after disaster, like Hurricane Harvey and Irma. To creating interventions from the American Strays 2030 Project data for the US Post Office to help humanely address stray dogs in large urban spaces. To helping service men and women reconnect with a dog or other pet they developed a relationship with where they were deployed - anywhere around the world. To helping keep track of quality animal welfare and rescue organizations and developing partnerships to deploy humane programs, including the "Good Pet Guardian Lesson Plans" developed for elementary school children. The lessons we learned in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina will be providing us guidance for decades to come.

Lindsey Williams spoke with his elitist friend and told secretive startling information! Lindsey Williams Drops NWO Bombshells Coming in 2015! No shortage of food but food price inflation will be so high many Americans will not be able to afford it. Oil price will track the decline/devaluation of the USD. US dollar will be devalued min 30%, max 50%. The elite do not want the USD to crash overnight but to gradually lose value. They are concerned that the sheeple will revolt should the USD collapses suddenly. It will be like a slow boiling of the frog in the pot. Nevertheless, the USD will be totally destroyed within 2 years (by 2012). Gold and silver (and hard assets) are to be trusted instead of fiat paper currencies. Gold and silver prices will rise. The elite plan everything many years in advance. They have a code of conduct which is quite different from ordinary folks. By engineering this economic collapse they stand to gain everything. The Illuminati Secrets: Propagate their intentions/plans openly but hidden in plain sight. You must understand their 'buzz' words and methodology to see through their plans. One World Government An example is Hurricane Katrina which was caused by HAARP. The elite produced a movie: Oil Storm and released it publicly weeks before Katrina. Oil Storm told how they intended to engineer the Hurricane Katrina crisis and drive up oil prices. The New World Order Another example is the Lone Gunman episode: telegraphing their intention to crash jet liners into the WTC Towers on 9/11.

KaBOOM! Vice President of Partnership Development Lysa Ratliff joins Michaela Pereira on HLN's MichaeLA program to discuss the work being done in Texas to restore joy in the lives of kids impacted by Hurricane Harvey. On the anniversary of the storm, the community came together to build a new playground, providing a place to play for the kids who need it most. This project is one of several that will happen as a part of the partnership between KaBOOM! and Rebuild Texas Fund to provide new playspaces in Hurricane Harvey affected communities across Texas. Together, they will build 15 playgrounds and award 20 Imagination Playground and Rigamajig grants. Play is a way to restore normalcy in the lives of kids as they deal with the stress of lost homes, lost loved ones and lost routine. By providing kids with a safe, fun environment, it can help them build resiliency and cope with the stress associated with disasters like Hurricane Harvey.

Ferguson Officials Release Video of Looters Raiding Market
http://www.vladtv.com -Police in Missouri are searching for at least 180 people who were seen looting a local market after the grand jury decided not to charge Darren Wllison for the murder of Michael Brown. According to Yahoo News, officials decided to release to video this week of the November incident to get the assistance of the public to identify the looters. The group broke into the Dellwood Market in Dellwood with rocks and tools. After they couldn’t get the door open, several teens were seen kicking the door and the side of the walls down. The culprits filled the store within a few mins and grabbed chips, candy and unidentified bottles. While this clip shows the first few minutes of the looting, the incident actually lasted a few hours with no police in sight. The store was looted three times since the death of Brown, with the store open for 25 years. The owner of the establishment, Mumtaz Lalani told Fox News last year he doesn’t plan to reopen the store. “It is not only the dollar amount," he said. "It’s just the psychological effects, that I don’t feel safe anymore in my own neighborhood that I used to be doing my business in for the last 25 years.” Lalani says previous damages added up to at least $50 to $100,000. He also says his clerks says they noticed some of the people in the video.

Car Makers, Retailers Rush to Open and Restock Houston after Harvey
Houston area car retailers and automakers are rushing to reopen dealerships and beef up inventory to replace many thousands of vehicles damaged in flooding from Hurricane Harvey. Pete DeLongchamps, vice president for manufacturer relations at the third-largest U.S. auto dealer group, said the company prepared for the storm with a plan designed after Hurricane Katrina in 2005. This included moving moved inventory to higher ground and cleaning roof drains to avoid cave-ins. Group 1 thus lost a “relatively small percentage” of inventory and reopened its roughly 25 dealerships in the Houston and Beaumont area by Thursday. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/domesticNews/~3/qCxXXX8aFx8/us-storm-harvey-autos-idUSKCN1BB2J8 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Part 1 of 2: The Lower Ninth: Ground Zero for Reparations and Education
After the catastrophic damage Hurricane Katrina caused to the people and the property in the communities along the Gulf States in September 2005, one especially hard hit neighborhood in the Lower Ninth Ward in New Orleans heard the announcement of the closure of all of its public schools until 2008. Instead of accepting the closing of one of their key institutions parents, community leaders, teachers, and administrators began to organize for King School's immediate reopening. Their organizing efforts take place within the context of a wider movement toward self-determination and the reclaiming of key community institutions termed reparations. This film reports on interviews, fieldnotes, discussions, findings, and actions taken during April 2006 immediately following Hurricane Katrina in the Lower Ninth Ward. Following recent work in cultural geography, critical race theory, and cultural studies, the film explores how one community, is rejecting systematic 'neoliberal' injustice, market imperatives, expansion of white capital and the violent dispossession of their property by claiming the right to self-determination. Through an analysis of the historical context which the Lower Ninth is situated, documents and speeches given by state officials, interviews of community members, the film illustrates several economic and educational themes that are represented in their struggle: racial geography, local fiscal control, the role of capital in ethnic cleansing, and a pedagogy of racial justice. Finally, the film offers a New Orleans framework for understanding how communities are forging a new narrative of liberation by claiming and taking reparations.
