Welfare recipients take out cash at strip clubs, liquor stores and X-rated shops By KATE BRIQUELET Last Updated: 10:03 AM, January 7, 2013 Posted: 1:47 AM, January 6, 2013 EXCLUSIVE They’re on the dole — and watching the pole. Welfare recipients took out cash at bars, liquor stores, X-rated video shops, hookah parlors and even strip clubs — where they presumably spent their taxpayer money on lap dances rather than diapers, a Post investigation found. A database of 200 million Electronic Benefit Transfer records from January 2011 to July 2012, obtained by The Post through a Freedom of Information request, showed welfare recipients using their EBT cards to make dozens of cash withdrawals at ATMs inside Hank’s Saloon in Brooklyn; the Blue Door Video porn shop in the East Village; The Anchor, a sleek SoHo lounge; the Patriot Saloon in TriBeCa; and Drinks Galore, a liquor distributor in The Bronx. The cover of today's Post The state Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance (OTDA), which oversees the “cash assistance program,” even lists some of these welfare-ready ATMs on its Web site. DEMS BOTTLE UP WELFARE REFORM BILL THAT WOULD END 'SINFUL SPENDING' NYC OFFICIALS WANT TO INVESTIGATE BODEGAS RINGING UP SUSPICIOUSLY HIGH SALES WITH FOOD-STAMP MONEY EDITORIAL: CARD TRICKS One EBT machine is stationed inside Club Eleven, an infamous Hunts Point jiggle joint known as much for its violent history as its girls in pink thongs. Cops have been cracking down on the Bronx club since 2009 and shut it down temporarily in 2010. In July, five men were stabbed and two others shot outside after bouncers broke up a 4 a.m. brawl with pepper spray. The club appeared to be shuttered when The Post visited Thursday. Club Heat, another Bronx strip club that dispenses EBT cash, is also no stranger to violence. A 33-year-old woman was fatally shot in the head outside the club in December 2011. Critics blasted the government for turning a blind eye to welfare’s sleazy money.

19 reasons to take a nap

19 reasons to take a nap Need an excuse to sneak in a nap this afternoon? We've got enough to last you weeks Ellen Michaud with Julie Bain 19 reasons to take a nap Yeah, we know. You didn't sleep well last night. So why not take a nap? Studies show that not only will you feel better almost immediately, says Sara Mednick, PhD, a sleep medicine researcher at the University of California at San Diego and author of Take a Nap! Change Your Life, but a daily nap of between 20 and 90 minutes before 4:00 pm will also increase your mental performance, reduce your chances of gaining weight, and make you feel a whole lot more like having sex after dinner than you probably do now. What's more, it won't affect your nighttime sleep. All told, a nap, according to Dr. Mednick, will: • Increase your on-the-job alertness by 100 percent • Sharpen your thinking so you make more accurate judgments and better decisions • Ramp up your productivity • Regenerate skin cells so you look younger • Increase your sex drive • Help you lose weight by altering metabolism and shifting chemicals that affect appetite • Reduce your risk of heart attack, stroke, irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure, and other cardiovascular problems • Lift your mood by bathing your brain in the neurotransmitter serotonin • Speed up your ability to perform motor tasks, like typing, operating machinery, even swimming • Improve your accuracy—in everything • Improve the way your body processes carbs, which reduces your risk of diabetes • Sharpen your senses so you take in what's important in your environment—and screen out the 24-hour culture chatter that surrounds us • Put your brain into its creative gear so you can come up with fresh ideas • Trigger a naturally occurring hormone that blocks the destructive chemicals produced by stress • Boost your ability to learn something new—and, better yet, remember it • Zap the need for drugs like caffeine and alcohol to manipulate your mood and energy level • Relieve migraines • Improve your nighttime sleep by eliminating that wired feeling and thus shutting off the brain chatter • Make you feel good all over  (Jan 7, 2013 | post #1)

That wouldn't work for me I'd have it covered with newspapers and stuff. Not only that I could send a controllable wireless signal to my big TV sets if I wanted everyone to see something.  (Jan 7, 2013 | post #5)

Tennessee Hunting Rights Amendment

I hear what you say but you also said "The NEED to hunt no longer exists". I say it does and some reasons are to control over population and the wildlife eating up farmers crops.  (Jan 6, 2013 | post #8382)
