Racist Shaidle in London

London Free Press has the latest on the Kathy Shaidle saga here:

Her scheduled appearance in London has started a similar battle in the blogosphere. Many of the blogs state the event is organized by the London Jewish Federation.

The federation's executive director, Esther Marcus, said yesterday she was asked by organizers of the event to book the Jewish Community Centre.

That was the extent of her involvement and, in any case, the organizers are now looking at another location, Marcus said. The federation is not a sponsor of the event, she said.

The piece also notes that, Alan Perlmutter, one of the event's organizers, is having second thoughts.

The most important thing to come from this relates to how a figure gets labelled "controversial" in wikipedia. Details as to how it would work in Shaidle's case can be found here, but the upshot appears to be, if I understand correctly, that a MSM piece (like the one above) quoting her more "outrageous" statements should make it easier for a catalog of such statements to appear as part of her main wiki entry. Thus anyone considering booking Shaidle for a speaking event/tv appearance will find them in the course of doing their due diligence research.

Another common problem that occurs in warehouses and industrial settings is floor damage due to chemicals. Certain chemicals can mar the surface of a floor, making it ugly and dirty looking. Acids and other abrasives can wear dents and pockmarks in the surface of a warehouse floor. An epoxy floor, though, can repel most chemicals and won't succumb to their harsh characteristics. No matter what sorts of chemicals or substances you regularly use in your warehouse, epoxy flooring should be able to stand up to them with ease. This type of warehouse cart is commonly customized for the type of material they will be carrying. From additional racks to shelves and compartments, the sky is the limit when it comes to customizations. As if Sony have not been through enough this year they are taking another hit with the London riots as their warehouse has suffered arson damage. Sony has warned that UK deliveries of CDs and DVDs could be affected after its only British warehouse for products was the subject of an arson attack as the riots rage in the city. 3. Only the required paperwork is present at the workstation. Out dated or otherwise unnecessary posters, memos, announcements, reports, etc. are removed from the workplace. Data warehousing has become such an essential issue in an organization that you will find the market flooded with several data warehousing vendors. The warehousing vendors provide technologies, tools and methods that help in managing, using, constructing and maintaining softwares used for a data warehouse. In most of the cases, these tools themselves are used for the data.
