Four new staging area’s for Merced, California were recently purchased for the planning of two legal tent cities. NAU is now ready to make a stand in Merced-both legally and publicly. Land was recently purchased by a construction company in France.
Six new sites for tent cities are now ready in Seattle, Washington. The sites were readied after the City of Seattle offered “Nickelsville” a “toxic” super fund site.

8 squatters killed in blaze in abandoned warehouse in blighted New Orleans neighborhood
By KEVIN McGILL Associated Press
NEW ORLEANS December 28, 2010 (AP)
The deadliest city blaze in decades killed eight homeless squatters who were burning debris in an abandoned warehouse to stay warm Tuesday, authorities said.
Firefighters said they could not tell the ages or genders of those who died because their bodies were so badly burned. A 23-year-old man who escaped told the American Red Cross he could not get back in to help his friends because of the smoke, agency volunteer Thomas Butler said.
The Orleans Parish Coroner’s Office said it was uncertain when the dead would be identified. However, a group of young people sitting on the steps of an abandoned house near the scene later Tuesday said the dead included three women and five men.
Rachel Park, 27, of California, estimated the ages ranged from 19 to 30.
She said the victims never thought of themselves as homeless and rejected the “gutter punk” label used by some locals to describe transient youths often seen begging for money or cigarettes on French Quarter streets.
“They were all accomplished musicians or artists — jolly, happy people,” Park said, adding that four dogs died along with the eight people.
Park knew the victims by first names only and said one or two were from the New Orleans area, while the others were from elsewhere in the U.S.
Temperatures were just below freezing early Tuesday, not unheard of but unusually cold for New Orleans. The warehouse is in a blighted city neighborhood left even more so by the flooding that followed Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
Agencies that work with the homeless said they believe some or all the victims were in their late teens or early 20s. Linda Gonzales, of the New Orleans Mission, said homeless young adults and teenagers often avoid shelters for several reasons.
“Some of them choose to stay out and you can’t make them come in,” she said.
The number of transient youths fluctuates, but there could be several hundred homeless young people in the city at any given time, said Mike Miller, an official with the homeless advocacy and aid group UNITY of Greater New Orleans.
Pepper will be flying in to handle negotiations and will oversee all operations involving Amy and her videos. She will be staying at TVCC until February.

LAST NAIDI ACTIVITY REPORT. PLACE EYES ON NADINE.
Gregoire thinks she can cash in on a perceived flaw in McGinn- Who is right and who is wrong on the Tunnel issue will just have to play itself out. My money is on Mike McGinn.
Gregoire recently pointed out McGinn’s flaws, but the old southern saying comes true every time. “Point your finger at someone, you will always have three fingers looking back.”
Sadly the real dilemma is, Governor Gregoire has some flaws of her own:
1. She has taxed the state-too much, in ways that target low income and homeless.
2. She has ran the State Ferries into the ground-literally, perhaps even intentionally (our tunnel theory)
3. She really has no-answer in dealing with homelessness problems. In fact, where does she plan to place the thousands of felons sex offenders she will release to the streets when the state shuts down some of the prison system? The smart ones will say NIMBY!

The governor isn’t speaking to him, most of the City Council dislikes him and a good chunk of Seattle sees him as a bicycle-riding obstructionist. So why is Mayor Mike McGinn sitting pretty?
Because he’s managed to maneuver Gov. Chris Gregoire and much of the city’s political establishment – including just about any potential 2013 challenger – into the unenviable position of basically having promised Jet City residents there will be no problems with a huge transportation project: the tunnel replacement for the Alaskan Way Viaduct.
McGinn got himself into trouble when he said in October that “I don’t believe we can trust” Gregoire or Olympia to protect Seattle’s interests when it comes to the tunnel. Last week Gregoire told seattlepi.com she hadn’t spoken to McGinn since, and that he’d “demeaned” the mayor’s office by making things personal. McGinn has deservedly taken his lumps for being so frank, but his refusal to play nice has made for an easy-to-understand dynamic for Jet City residents on the $4.2 billion tunnel replacement project: McGinn hates it; everybody else loves it.
Construction is set to begin on the tunnel next year. If anything goes wrong – from construction problems to cost overruns – Mike “I told you so” McGinn will see his popularity jump while his foes will be scrambling for cover.
There’s a clause in the state authorizing legislation that says Seattle would have to pick up cost overruns. The state attorney general says that’s unenforceable and tunnel supporters say not to worry about it. But some lawmakers insist they’ll make sure Seattle pays if the tunnel busts its budget. If it does, expect a battle royale in Olympia as anti-Seattle sentiment reaches higher than the Space Needle. Seattle voters will see McGinn as the guy who was sticking up for their interests and quickly turn on those perceived to have gotten the city into this mess.
From a policy standpoint, it’s easy to argue that abandoning the tunnel would’ve been far worse than going forward; Seattle’s reputation as the capital of liberal dithering would’ve been cemented. As soon as the tunnel contracts are signed, there’s pretty much no going back.
But the tunnel debate has become so pitched that logic left the building a long time ago. Consider that the environmentalist McGinn objects to a tunnel that will decrease auto capacity on State Route 99 through downtown by about 35 percent, while business interests support the option that will actually make it harder to get to the core shopping district and result in up to 800 downtown parking spaces being removed. Details from environmental and transportation studies are generally ignored by most voters, but McGinn has wisely seized on something that’s easier to grasp – who’s going to get stuck with the bill.
The tunnel can make McGinn crazy (see his impolitic statements about the governor). But in turn, McGinn makes everybody else crazy. He’s pushed otherwise savvy policy makers into a corner on the tunnel. Sure, the project could come off without a hitch. But considering that crews will be digging through the watefront’s notoriously unstable ground and that people in Seattle react poorly to big construction headaches, it’s just as likely there will be problems.
McGinn’s no-can-trust Olympia statement stemmed from his anger about what he sees as the state’s obfuscations about the tunnel. The mayor insists the state purposely kept the city in the dark about the fact that a potential tunnel bidder dropped out of the process earlier this year, leaving just two companies to vie for the job. There are also lingering hard feelings over beliefs the state backed out of an agreement to allow the Seattle area to better prepare transit options to mitigate the effects of pouring tens of thousands of additional cars on downtown streets because so many will object to paying tunnel tolls.
McGinn’s predecessor, Mayor Greg Nickels, also had a relatively chilly relationship with Gregoire, though they made nice in public. And you could probably count on one hand the number of substantive discussions Nickels and House Speaker Frank Chopp, D-Seattle, had during Nickels’ two terms (McGinn and Chopp get along much better, as Chopp also hates the tunnel). City Council President Richard Conlin has labored mightily to repair the strains in the Seattle-Olympia relationship, and it’s Conlin who Gregoire now turns to when she wants to speak to someone at City Hall.
But remember that all politics is local. If tunnel construction hits a snag McGinn’s biggest perceived flaw – his intransigence on this issue – will turn into his biggest strength.
Big game plan for Seattle, Washington.
Organizers voted to change the game plan for Seattle as Republicans take control of House and Senate. Introduced today was visible proof that homelessness will continue to grow because of defiance at all levels of Local, State and Federal Government. Seemingly, government cannot pull itself together-get on the same page as ruthless business concerns outweigh humane priorities.
Homiee’s Against Hacker’s organized by a retired ranger came up with a new tool that can hammer a website which was tried around the same time that the great Wiki leaks fell. Rather than attack IP’s with the dreaded cobra, we tried this design against IP spoofers recently. It actually works. Cobra was used on Wiki leaks the the first time that it went offline. Wiki leaks fell on the first wack at a Setting 3 using 10 megabits band width and a 6k string, this however uses different protocol than the Cobra unit. It has the same effect and cannot be knocked offline so easy. 4 ASA’s are used in the design. The homiee’s network contains 530 units spread over a broad internet range.
Operation Superfly-type in the blocked ip address, hit enter and the ICMP’s take care of the rest.
