Legislator rallies local students over summer BY RIKKI MASSAND

who are riding them in a dangerous fashion and make it a misdemeanor for anyone over the age of 12 participating in the ride-outs. “For a first time offense, we would impose a fine of $100 on the parents of children over the age of twelve who engage in this type of behavior,” said Ferretti. The legislator said that there has been an increased number of calls from aggravated motorists to the local police department about the ride-outs, but that there is lit-

Syosset High School Class of 2012 graduate, former Syosset Board of Education trustee and current Nassau County Legislator Joshua A. Lafazan is running for re-election this fall in District 18. He was first elected to public office on the school board at age 18, and Lafazan was the second youngest public servant to be elected in New York State. At 23 years old, in November 2017, Josh Lafazan became Nassau County’s youngest-ever legislator upon his election to the County Legislature. At age 25 now, he inspires 75 high school and college interns to collaborate at his campaign office inside the Plainview Shopping Center at 393 South Oyster Bay Road. The dozens of high school and even middle school interns on the Lafazan campaign trail and canvass teams for 2019 work Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Each week, Tuesdays and Thursdays are set up as times for college student interns to cover the in-office programming and outreach. But on Saturdays all summer long, it’s “all hands on deck” as every young person involved in Legislator Lafazan’s re-election bid gets to work instead of hitting the beaches or water parks, playing video games, cruisin’ around the mall or relaxing in their precious down time before the school year. “Our team of interns are showcasing that young people are never too young to make a difference. I founded this internship program to give young people the opportunity to serve their community, and I’ve been so impressed with the tenacity, compassion, and intellect they have shown. At 25 years old, I have to be the person to give young people a shot, and I’ll always be a champion for breaking down barriers to entry for young people. I love my job, and hope that I will have the privilege of serving another term come Election Day,” Lafazan told the Advance and News-Journal last week. His county legislature seat represents Syosset, Woodbury, Laurel Hollow, Brookville, Mill Neck, Muttontown, Lattingtown, Locust Valley, Glen Head, Bayville, Oyster Bay, Oyster Bay Cove, and Cove Neck. Among the interns he has working in Plainview Shopping Center and canvassing the local communities, about 26 students are from Lafazan’s hometown of Syosset and another 20 are students from Jericho. The mass of young people inside the campaign office refer to the groundbreaking young legislator as “Josh.” Many commented that they decided to spend this summer getting the word out about him, and the importance of civic engagement and registering to vote in the 2019 election. Social media has helped several of these local students and their parents discover who their local-level elected officials are, and some students say they have peers in school who did not know they lived with the Town of Oyster Bay and that there were local legislators, senators and others representing their hometowns. Some of Lafazan’s summer interns will be eligible to cast a vote by the 2020 Presidential Election, now just 16 months away. He also has

New bills will help curb bike ‘ride-outs’ BY GARY SIMEONE A dangerous trend for kids has emerged this summer riding their bicycles and scooters on some of the County’s major thoroughfares. They are called ride-outs, where kids bait drivers on the road by darting in and out of oncoming traffic and swerving at the last minute to avoid collisions. As a result of these so-called ride-outs, Nassau County legislators have proposed two separate bills to help curb the trend of this dangerous type of activity.

County Legislator John Ferretti Jr, who represents 15th district, said that the proposed bills would raise the required helmet age to 18 and impose penalties for kids who are participating in these rideouts. “The first bill is really a result of the increase in bicycling accidents nationwide,” said Ferretti. “There have been seventeen deaths alone in New York City this year from people riding a bike.” The second bill would allow police to confiscate and impound bicycles of people

Pipeline projects, environmental impacts topics at Sen. Gaughran's Town Hall BY RIKKI MASSAND Concerns over changing environmental and related economic and quality of life factors on Long Island, in the greater New York City area and nationwide were addressed with a rare public meeting for residents to speak their minds on non-legislative matters. With a capacity crowd of 120 people on hand, New York State Senator Jim Gaughran, who represents North Shore communities in District 5 in both Nassau and Suffolk Counties, hosted his first Environmental Town Hall at the Gold Coast Library on Tuesday night, July 30. A key topic Sen. Gaughran remains divided on is the Williams Transco’ NESE (Northeast Supply Enhancement Project) gas pipeline proposal making its third application to state-level environmental agencies in New Jersey and New York to build a $650 gas pipeline, drawing from fracked natural gas in the Marcellus Shale formation in Pennsylvania, and cut across central New Jersey townships and lands and the Raritan Bay (south of the Verrazano Bridge, in Brooklyn) to deliver gas to customers on Long Island, in New York City and eventually the New England region. At the Environmental Town Hall, Sen. Gaughran said he strongly opposed fracking of natural gas, but feels there could be a way of meeting the gas heating needs of New York and New England residents who have previously relied on expensive oil heat and other energy sources. At the July 30 Town Hall Billii Roberti of Mothers Out Front, a nonprofit group concerned with “climate change, climate crisis and climate emergency” spoke about in-ground heat pumps replacing fossil fuelbased heating systems. Roberti is a New York State leadership team member and Long Island/Town of Huntington Community team member from Gaughran’s hometown. “The best and most efficient kind

use the heat from Earth (geothermal systems) and they reduce the heat and electric load, which of course is the main driver of our high electricity bills. It is an up-front cost to put in an underground loop system, and costs dissuade people and towns from going this way,” she commented. Roberti asked Sen. Gaughran if NYSERDA (New York State Energy Research & Development Authority) do more and offer people subsidy to convert to “cleaner, healthier and cheaper to operate” heating and cooling energy systems. He says NYSERDA should do more, but government officials should make this a priority. “Also our state legislature needs to look at ways we can help incentivize so this can be done because people on Long Island are struggling and that equals a lot of money to put up front for major systems. We can try to provide incentives, grants and other encouragement as part of our overall picture moving forward,” he said. Opponents of Williams’ NESE project including the New Jersey Sierra Club explain that Williams currently seeks permits from New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) to receive Federal Energy Review Commission (FERC) permission to begin construction of the pipeline and related infrastructure, including a gas compressor station in Franklin Township, New Jersey. Linda Powell, outreach coordinator for the Central Jersey Environmental Defenders group and its website SCRAP-NESE (Stop Compressor and Resist Added Pipeline), provided the following update on Monday, August 8: “It has been over three years since the opposition to the NESE Project began, and there’s still hope that the NJDEP will do the right thing and reject the third set of applications from Williams/Transco for permits

since they fail to meet State requirements for the permits.” “The June 12, 2019 applications Williams Transco has submitted to NJDEP still do not meet New Jersey regulations by showing a “compelling public need” for the NESE Project. They still include harms from construction of the pipeline to our surface water quality, marine life, and threatened & endangered species and their habitats. The proposed infiltration basin for the compressor station site still does not meet required regulations. Operations would guarantee decades of toxic air pollution from the compressor station.” SCRAP-NESE advocates note that with the proposed pipeline project under the Raritan Bay and on land, water supply and marine contaminants would be unearthed, suspended and redistributed exceeding state-designated “acceptable” levels:. “Exceedances were found by the NYSDEC for heavy metals -- copper and mercury -- in New York’s waters. Construction of the Raritan Bay Loop of the NESE Project would negatively impact surface water quality, and harm threatened and endangered species and their habitat. Additionally, the shortening of the in-water construction schedule raises serious concerns about impacts from increased

vessel traffic and noise as well as adhering to time-of-year restrictions to protect threatened and endangered species if the schedule needs to be altered due to unforeseen circumstances. Furthermore, the unique tidal flows in the Raritan Bay do not seem to have been given appropriate consideration,” the SCRAPNESE website states. Saturday July 13 was the close of public comment for Williams/Transco’s reapplication for a Water Quality certification from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. For the current (June 2019) Land Use project applications from Williams, the NJDEP extended a public comment period until Friday, August 23, for any interested members of the public to submit written comments. Letters can be sent to NJDEP Commissioner Catherine R. McCabe or DEP Acting Director Ruth Foster at 401 East State Street, Trenton, New Jersey 08625, P.O. Box 402 (McCabe) and 420 (Foster). Email addresses to NESE Project Managers at NJDEP include the following:; Joslin.; Stephen. Ruth.Foster@; Christopher.Jones@dep. and Constituent.relations@

Legislator rallies local students over summer From page 1

some middle schoolers who will have to wait past 2024 to vote. Two young brothers from Syosset, 14-year-old Neil and 12-year old Nicholas Fernandes, are among the younger ones interning at Lafazan’s Plainview office this summer. Neil says his family moved into Syosset around the time his little brother was born. Nicholas currently attends South Woods Middle School. Neil is preparing to enter the ninth grade at Regis High School in Manhattan, and he feels ready for daily trips on the LIRR from the Syosset station. “I learned about Legislator Lafazan after seeing things posted on Facebook -- first my mom saw it and then I looked at it. I was impressed by the things the legislator has done, including a lot of really good things for our community. I just want to volunteer and help him continue doing the good work as he is re-elected (this fall). Josh is 25 years old and at age 18 he was elected to be on the Syosset Board of Education. He went to Cornell and Harvard too. We hope Josh continues to help people in this area and we like learning from his example,” Neil Fernandes said. Both boys say they are active on Facebook and with their school and neighborhood communities. But they decided on spending summer days at the Plainview Shopping Center. They are inspired by Lafazan’s great rise in the political sphere, but the Fernandes brothers look at their positions as students with many years left and say their focus is “keeping up with goals” in school and around Syosset. Neil says he will be eager to tell his peers in ninth grade at Regis High School, “I spent the summer helping someone achieve something greater in life. From Josh and all the other kids and teens here I have learned it is okay to continue and to face your goals headon. It is okay to take a step forward, even though you may not like it or if you were scared to do something.” His little brother says a key he has observed by being around Lafazan and the other 74 interns is “to start at a young age, so you can work on your problems in the present and finish getting over any hurdles earlier rather than later.”

Leadership Connects Jericho Students

Chase Serota is the campaign manager at Lafazan’s Plainview office. He is committed to the work, the principles and representing his hometown -- Jericho -- as Chase is a 2017 JHS graduate and a former JHS Student Council President. Starting later this month, Serota will be commuting from college -- UPenn in Philadelphia -- up to Plainview for his position with Lafazan’s team for three to four days a week. This summer

Student interns at Legislator Lafazan’s Plainview campaign office. Chase has hosted Town of Oyster Bay Democrats, local officials and Nassau County Executive Laura Curran as well a State Senator Jim Gaughran, listening in on the messages for the interns he oversees. On Wednesday August 7 the focus turned to hosting members of the media from WPIX-11 TV and News 12 to Newsday and other outlets. Chase Serota rediscovered his roots: before delivering his speech at the 2017 Jericho graduation ceremony, Chase was introduced as a “news junkie.” Seventeen-year-old Sophia Kim is entering her senior year at Jericho High School this September. Aside from work on the campaign, Kim is focusing on her college applications to the University of Michigan, Duke University and Cornell (Lafazan’s alma mater). But in spring of junior year, she learned about the chance to intern for the Lafazan campaign from an email blast sent by a JHS guidance counselor in winter time. Since then, she’s taken a great opportunity to learn on the campaign trail and at Jericho High School she has become co-student body president for the coming school year (2019-2020). By chance Kim first met Legislator Lafazan at a Jericho Board of Education meeting, and she followed up. “I had no idea what the internship for a County legislator was or how to pronounce his last name. I was skeptical because I am not sure if I am more leaning towards political science or premed in college. I just signed up and did an interview. I did research on the campaign and then I got the internship. When I saw him at our school board’s meeting giving out citations for little

girls from the district, like Girl Scouts, I thought that might be what a county legislator does. But it’s community engagement, outreach and helping others,” Kim said. From canvassing efforts, Kim observed how a few constituents along the campaign trails question whether or not at age 25 Lafazan has had enough experience in government. She says the overwhelming belief in him “as their candidate” starts with considering what Leg. Lafazan has done with passing bills in his first year. She also is encouraged to speak about local politics not having hard-line Democrat or Republican issues when community matters are involved. Through canvassing Sophia Kim has learned about and studied local efforts to curb airplane flight routes and the noise they’ve created over Long Island communities from the north shoe to the south shore. She learned about TVASNAC (the Town-Village Aircraft Safety and Noise Abatement Committee) as well as work from Senator Tom Suozzi and Queens Congresswoman Grace Meng on this effort in Washington. “In the beginning the canvassing role was more about ice breakers and how to talk and approach people. Now the intern role is to learn about local politics. My friend Drew Naiberg-Smith who is going into the position of student representative on the Jericho School Board is also very excited to learn as we hear about Josh’s position as a recent student who then served on his local board of education,” Kim said. Hemani Mehta is a 15-year-old enter-

ing her sophomore year at Jericho High School. Both of her parents are engineers, and Hemani has a 12-year-old younger brother. Her family has lived in Jericho since 2009. She says an opportunity to do something like the 75 interns in Legislator Lafazan’s office are doing over summer was unimaginable until Jericho High School posten an online announcement that caught her interest. “In Jericho Middle School we had a ‘National History Day’ theme which was a competition for kids doing research; you research themes such as ‘conflict and compromise’ or ‘breaking barriers.’ I really loved researching and doing a performance and through that I realized how much I loved researching. I looked through the announcement about this campaign and I saw that there’s a research and policy team. I wanted to learn and become well-versed in researching history and policy -- I had been following national-level politics for the last several years but that is very accessible for the public, but I had no idea about Nassau County or our local level. Local politics is not really out and talked about much, which is unfortunate because a lot of people should know about what goes on at their local level,” she said. When Hemani started her summer with Lafazan’s campaign she was entirely focused on topics to research, and she did not come in understanding Lafazan’s initiatives and positions on issues. Her own support for him was borne from interactions in the communities students have canvassed in See page 16

Global Scavenger Hunt, Leg 3: The Enchantment of Inle Lake, Myanmar BY KAREN RUBIN TRAVEL FEATURES SYNDICATE GOINGPLACESFARANDNEAR.COM My perfect day in Inle Lake, Myanmar, on Leg 3 of the Global Scavenger Hunt, a 23-day aroundthe-world mystery tour, begins the night before, on the JJ Express bus that leaves the temple city of Bagan at 10 pm and arrives at the bus stop (literally in the middle of the street in a small village) at 4:30 am. It is complete darkness, not a sound or stirring besides ourselves as the bus pulls away, leaving us there. For a moment, we feel stranded. Then, out of the shadows, two tiny jitneys – like small tut-tut openback vehicles - appear. The drivers ask which hotels we are bound for so we divide up based on which side of Inle Lake we are staying. We settle the fare (we are in a very limited position to negotiate) and climb in. The jitney drops us at the Sanctum Inle Resort at 5:30 am, where the kindly hotel clerk calls in housekeeping early so we could get into our rooms by 6 am (when 2 pm would have been normal checkin time). This five-star resort makes me feel like I have been dropped into paradise. I am on my own at this point, though at least one other of the 10 teams, SLO Folks, on the Global

Indeed, this challenge, Leg 3 of our trip, is to depart Yangon (the city formerly known as Rangoon when the former British colony was known as Burma) and complete a triangle of cities (Bagan, Mandalay, Inle Lake), allowing only two legs by air and return to Yangon by 6 pm on Saturday, making our own arrangements for transpor-

tation and hotel (we are reimbursed $200/night/team). I had planned to go from Bagan to Mandalay with my teammate, but after hearing about Inle Lake from another team (Lawyers Without Borders, a Houston team that has done the Global Scavenger Hunt 12 times) who had been here before, I was enchanted to see it; then, overhearing SLO Folks planning to take the overnight bus, I was determined to see it for myself. The description enchanted me: Located in the middle of Myanmar, in the Shan State, Inle Lake is set in a valley between two mountain ranges,

with whole villages of wooden houses built on stilts in the middle of the lake, floating gardens, boatmen who steer standing up, wrapping one leg around a tall oar. There are 10 different Shan ethnic groups living around the lake and the surrounding hills, home to many different minorities who come down to sell their goods in the villages – like the Long Lake Ladies. Inle Lake was designated a wetland wildlife sanctuary in 1985. Inle Lake feels like a different world to the rest of Myanmar, indeed, it seems like an enchanted Sangri-la. The Sanctum Hotel (Maing Thauk Village, Inle Lake, Nyaungshwe, Myanmar) is on the list of suggested accommodations provided by the GSH “ringmaster” and Chief Experience Officer, Bill Chalmers, and because I am not competing, have booked on hotels. com ($101 for the night). I am delighted to find it is an absolutely gorgeous fivestar luxury resort (the infinity pool on the grounds with views to the lake is breathtaking), and just being here fills me with a contented peace. But that is only the beginning. The kindness of the hotel manager is immensely appreciated. For me, it means I am able to take advantage of the hotel’s 8 am boat tour (that means a traditional wooden boat with the modern convenience of a power motor as well as the boatman’s long oar) because most of Inle Lake’s special attractions are literally on the lake – whole villages, in fact, are built on stilts on the lake; there are floating gardens which are really aquatic farms; floating markets;

the fishermen fish in a distinctive fashion with nets and the boatmen paddle standing up, with their leg wrapped around the tall oar. The temples and other major attractions – silversmiths, weavers, boatmakers – are all reached by the boat. The full-day tour will take me to the Five Day Market, Phaung Daw Oo Pagoda, Inn Paw Khone Village, Ywa Ma Village, Nam Pan Village (where we visit workshops to see crafts – silversmithing, weaving, boatmaking), Floating Gardens, Nge’ Phe’ Chaung Monastery and Indein Pagoda – essentially enabling me to see all Inle Lake’s highlights in a one-day visit ($35), though there is so much to see, Inle Lake is worth a two or three day stay. The Sanctum Inle Resort is situated on the bank of Inle lake - a shallow lake that’s over 13.5 miles long and 7 miles wide - and to begin the tour I have booked (because I’m not competing, I can book a hotel tour, while the competing team cannot, so they go off to find where the boatmen keep their boats), I am escorted down to the hotel’s dock where the boat and the boatman is waiting. It turns out I am the only one, so this is essentially a private tour. The boatman, a young fellow named Wei Mo, speaks only limited English – enough to tell me where I am going – but it is sufficient, I just don’t expect to get any commentary. It is an amazing experience – gliding across the lake, the fresh air and cool breeze rushing over me, especially after the debilitating 108-degree heat of Bagan. Inle Lake is notable for the

Intha, lake dwellers who have a distinctive way rowing their wooden boats by wrapping their leg around a tall oar. At first, the mechanics make no sense. But I realize it is a way of standing and using such a tall oar and keeping the weight balanced on the tiny boats. During the course of the boat tour, I encounter a young fellow fishing (though you have to get out pretty much at sunrise to see the fishermen), boat people harvesting from the lake, go through an entire village built on stilts, where there are also numerous craftsmen and workshops we visit. One stop provides an opportunity to visit with the Long-Neck Ladies (actually only one), who come down from their secluded village to pose for photos with tourists for money. We also visit important pagodas and temples on the lake. It is remarkable to see how the Inthar make the most out of the lake - even creating farmland where none existed. They build floating gardens out of lake-bottom weeds and water hyacinth and grow crops like squash and tomatoes, anchoring them with bamboo poles. I learn that these floating islands can be cut, dragged by boats and even sold like a plot of land. Floating gardens can be found mostly in Kaylar, Inchan and Zayatgyi villages. I love visiting the various workshops in the various villages – it seems each has a specialty. We visit a silversmith workshop where I watch the intricate process before being led into (what else) an elaborate shop, filled with stunning creations. Wei pulls up to Inn Paw Khone

Village, famous for its weaving workshops, but most notably, weaving silk from lotus. Silk weaving in Inn Paw Khon began 100 years ago. At first, they wove from cotton fiber and then changed to silk and finally lotus fiber. and I am told that the technique of making silk from lotus was begun by a woman now more than a century old. I get to watch how a woman delicately pulls a strand from the lotus plant which is wound on a spindle into thread. At the boatmakers, I learn how each one is designed differently for their purpose – a family boat, a fishing boat (7.8 meters), a boat designed for the Long Neck people. “A boat lasts 25 years. Only men make the boats, they need to be strong. It takes 20 days to make a boat; they make lacquer from a tree to paint, wood powder and cotton. It takes two people to cut the teakwood,” she tells me. There are absolutely stunning wood carvings to purchase. But I must travel light. We stop in several of the region’s most important pagodas. Shwe Indein Pagoda is the most impressive of the attractions visited. You walk up a covered walkway lined with beautifully painted columns, up a hill, flanked by an astonishing 1,600 Buddhist stupas, some of stone, some intricately carved, some gilded. Many have been restored but you also see many crumbling with age and being reclaimed by the jungle. (There is a camera fee, 500 kyat, which works out to about 30 cents). According to,

BY LOU THEODORE We are approaching back-to-school time and many youngsters attending college in their freshman/sophomore years will be asked to select a major to study. This month’s article provides my pitch on why some should consider engineering as a career. In a very broad sense, engineering is a term applied to the profession in which a knowledge of the mathematical and natural sciences, gained by study, experience, and practice, is applied to the efficient use of the materials and forces of nature. The term engineer denotes an individual who has received professional training in both pure and applied science, but was often used in the past to describe the operator of an engine, as in the term locomotive engineer. In modern times, these occupations became known as crafts or trades. There are five major branches of engineering, listed below in alphabetical order. 1. Chemical Engineering 2. Civil Engineering

On engineering as a career 3. Electrical Engineering 4. Environmental Engineering 5. Mechanical Engineering One could also add to this engineering list the following fields: aeronautical, astronautical, geological, industrial, marine, military, managerial, mining, naval, petroleum, structural, and the recent addition of nanotechnology. However, since I am a chemical engineer working in both the chemical and environmental fields, chemical and environmental engineering are primarily addressed in the sections to follow.

Problem Solving

The engineer (and to a lesser degree the scientist) is known for his problem-solving ability. It is probably this ability more than any other that has enabled many engineers to rise to positions of leadership and top management within their companies. In problem-solving, considerable importance is attached to a proper analysis of the problem, to a logical recording of the problem solution, and to the overall professional appearance of the finished

product of the calculations. The value of an engineer is usually determined by his/her ability to apply basic principles, facts, and methods in order to accomplish some useful purpose. In this modem age of industrial competition, the ultimate definition of a useful purpose is usually based on a tangible profit of monetary value. It is not sufficient, therefore, to have a knowledge and understanding of physics, chemistry, mathematics, mechanics, stoichiometry, thermodynamics, the unit operations, chemical technology, and other related engineering and scientific subjects; he/she must also have the ability to apply this knowledge to practical situations, and, in making these applications, recognize the importance of the dollar sign. Certain methods of logic and techniques of calculation are fundamental to the solution of many problems, and there is a near infinite number of methods. Words such as creative, ingenuity, original, etc., appear in all these approaches. What do they all have in

common? They provide a systematic, logical approach to solving problems, and what follows is this author’s definition of a generic approach. The methodology of solving problems has been discussed by most mathematicians and logicians since the days of Aristotle. Heuristic (“serving to discover”) is the term often given to this study of the methods and rules of solving problems. Nearly always, a stepwise approach to the solution is desirable. The broad steps are: 1. Understanding the problem 2. Devising a plan 3. Carrying out the plan 4. Looking back

History of Engineering

In terms of history, the engineering profession as defined today is usually considered to have originated shortly after 1800. However, many of the “processes” associated with this discipline were developed in antiquity. For example, filtration operations were carried See page D5

You Don’t Have to Be Old to Get Social Security BY TOM MARGENAU

If you were to play a word association game and the phrase “Social Security” came up, I bet many of you would answer “old people” or “senior citizens.” It’s normal to associate Social Security with old folks because, well, the majority of Social Security beneficiaries are just that. But about 30% of people getting a monthly check from Social Security are nowhere near their golden years. For example, there are about 5 million children who get Social Security on a living or deceased parent’s account. And there are another 10 million people who get Social Security disability benefits. I’ve saved up some questions that deal with those aspects of Social Security for today’s column. Q: I am 62 and not working. I was planning to wait until age 70 to start my Social Security. But I have a 32-year-old son who has had severe physical and mental problems since birth. He is living with us. My wife is 58 and has never worked outside the home because she has been a full-time caregiver for our son. He has never worked and never will. Is there a way I can sign my son up for my Social Security now and still save my own until I’m 70? A: No, you can’t do that. Your son (and your wife) can get benefits on your record only if you are getting benefits yourself. Because of the extra money that would be payable to your son and wife, I think you need to strongly consider filing for benefits now. The rules say that a son or daughter who has been disabled since childhood is due a monthly dependent’s benefit on a parent’s retirement account. And the rules further say that benefits can also be paid to the other caregiving parent, assuming he or she is not working outside the home. Let’s look at what that would mean in your case. At age 62, you would be paid 75% of your full retirement rate. And your son would get an amount equal to 50% of your full retirement benefit. Your wife is also due the 50% rate. Those benefits would continue for the rest of your lives. And if you should happen to die first, your son would get an amount equal to 75% of your full retirement rate. Your wife would get anywhere between 75% and 100%, depending on how old she is when you die. Q: Our son’s wife recently died. They had three children who are all under age 18. We just learned they are possibly due Social Security checks. Are they? And how do we go about getting them? A: If your daughter-in-law was working, and worked long enough to be “insured” for Social Security, then the children would get monthly survivor

benefits on her record. How much work she would have needed in order for her children to be eligible for benefits on her account depends on her age when she died. If she was older, she might need 10 years of work. But it could be as few as 18 months of work if she was very young when she died. Each child is technically due an amount equal to 75% of her full rate. But there is a maximum that can be paid on any Social Security account involving children. The maximum rate depends on several factors. But let’s say it is 175% in your daughter-in-law’s case. That would mean that each child would get a rate equal to a little less than 60% of their mother’s Social Security benefit. I am assuming your son is working. If he is, then he wouldn’t be due any benefits as a caregiving parent similar to those paid to the mother as explained in the answer to the first question. In fact, even if he wasn’t working, then the family maximum rules would prevent him from being paid anything extra. To say that another way, if your son was put on the beneficiary rolls, the family would still get the 175% maximum payment. It would just be split four ways instead of three. As far as how to file for benefits, that’s easy. Your son should call Social Security at 800-772-1213 or go online to Q: I am 52 years old. Recently, I had to quit my job because of various physical problems. How do I sign up for Social Security disability? And can I do so if I am getting unemployment benefits? A: You would be eligible for Social Security disability benefits if you have worked and paid Social Security taxes for five out of the last 10 years and if you have an impairment that is expected to keep you from working for at least 12 months. You can apply for disability benefits online at www.socialsecurity. gov or by calling the Social Security Administration at 800-772-1213. To the best of my knowledge, there are no laws that prevent you from getting unemployment benefits and Social Security disability benefits at the same time. But consider this. To get unemployment benefits, you are essentially telling the unemployment agency that you are ready willing and able to work. To get Social Security disability benefits, you would be telling SSA that you are so disabled that you can’t do any kind of work. I hope you see the conflict there! Q: I am 60 years old and have multiple physical and mental problems. I haven’t worked in several years. I have applied for Social Security disability three times and been turned down each time. What can I do? A: If you were turned down just once

for Social Security disability benefits, I would say that there is a chance that SSA made a mistake and you should file an appeal. If you were turned down a second time, I’d recommend that it might be time to hire a lawyer who specializes in Social Security disability cases. But if you’ve been turned down three times, then I’d suggest that maybe you simply accept the fact that you do

not meet the legal definition of disability for Social Security purposes. Perhaps there is some light work you can do for a couple more years until you turn 62, at which point you can file for Social Security retirement benefits. If you have a Social Security question, Tom Margenau has the answer. Contact him at COPYRIGHT 2019 CREATORS.COM

C ontinued from page D3 out 5000 years ago by the Egyptians. Operations such as crystallization, precipitation, and distillation soon followed. Others evolved from a mixture of craft, mysticism, incorrect theories, and empirical guesses during this period. In a very real sense, the chemical industry dates back to prehistoric times when people first attempted to control and modify their environment, and it developed as did any other trade or craft. With little knowledge of science and no means of chemical analysis, the earliest “engineers” had to rely on previous art and superstition. As one would imagine, progress was slow. This changed with time. Industry in the world today is a sprawling complex of raw-material sources, manufacturing plants, and distribution facilities which supply society with thousands of products, most of which were unknown over a century ago. In the latter half of the nineteenth century, an increased demand arose for individuals trained in the fundamentals of these processes. This demand was ultimately met by engineers. The technical advances of the 19th century greatly broadened the field of engineering and introduced a large number of the aforementioned engineering specialties. The rapidly changing demands of the socioeconomic environment in the 20th and 21st centuries have widened the scope even further. One need only review the various branches of engineering listed earlier.

Chemical Engineering

Chemical engineering is one of the basic tenets of engineering, and contains many practical concepts that are utilized in countless real-world industrial applications. A discussion centered on the field of chemical engineering is therefore warranted before proceeding to some specific details regarding this discipline. A reasonable question to ask is: What is chemical engineering? An outdated, but once official definition provided by the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) is: Chemical engineering is that branch of engineering concerned with the development and application of manufacturing processes in which chemical or certain physical changes are involved. These processes may usually be resolved into a coordinated series of unit physical “operations.” The work of the chemical engineer is primarily concerned with the design, construction, and operation of equipment and plants in which these unit operations and processes are applied. Chemistry, physics, and mathematics are the underlying sciences of chemical engineering, and

On engineering as a career economics is its guide in practice. This definition was appropriate until a few decades ago when the profession branched out from the chemical industry. Today, that definition has changed. Although it is still based on chemical fundamentals and physical principles, these have been de-emphasized in order to allow for the expansion of the profession to other areas. These areas include environmental management, health and safety, computer applications, project management, probability and statistics, ethics, and economics and finance, plus several other “new” topics. This has led to many new definitions of chemical engineering, several of which are either too specific or too vague. A definition proposed by your author, is simply that “chemical engineers solve problems.” Today, this engineering discipline offers the student the largest number of professional options to pursue on graduation, including medicine, law, education, the environment, etc. This would be my first choice for anyone interested in pursuing a career in engineering.

Environmental Engineering

Traditionally, the scope of environmental engineering (originally termed sanitary engineering) was confined primarily to water supply, sewerage, and general environmental sanitation. Since the middle of the 20th century, however, the profession has expanded – due in part to the author - to include increased responsibilities in municipal and industrial waste treatment, air pollution, solid waste management, radiological health, safety, etc. It was originally viewed as a branch of civil engineering, but because of its importance, especially in dense urban-population areas, it acquired the importance of a specialized field. As noted, it now primarily deals with problems involving water supply, treatment, and distribution; disposal of community wastes and reclamation of useful components of such wastes; control of pollution of surface waterways, groundwaters, and soils; air pollution; control of atmospheric pollution; meteorology; housing and institutional management; rural and recreational-site management; insect and vermin control; industrial hygiene, including control of light, noise, vibration, and toxic materials in work areas; and, other fields concerned with the control of environmental factors affecting health. The field of accident and emergency management/ health and hazard risk assessment has as its object the prevention of accidents. In recent years, “safety” engineering has become a specialty adopted by individuals trained in other branches of engineering. With the expanding effort to provide

a healthier environment for the industrial worker, environmental engineering techniques are employed to rid the air of noxious dusts and gases in plants and other working areas. The problem of atmospheric pollution resulting from discharging waste into the atmosphere in large industrial settings became a major concern soon after 1970, a time when I entered the field.

More on Engineering

Other Engineering Disciplines Civil Engineering is the oldest and broadest of all engineering branches. It is in turn subdivided to include specialization in such fields as structural, sanitary, public health, hydraulic, transportation and other established engineering disciplines. They design bridges and tunnels, construct roads, install water-supply and sewage-disposal systems, erect dams, lay out railroads and other transportation systems and plan buildings of all types and sizes for public, private, and industrial uses. Electrical Engineering, another important branch of the profession, deals comprehensively with power generation and its transmission and distribution, electronics and its many applications, transportation, illumination, and all types of electrical machinery. The electrical engineer designs, directs and supervises the construction of electrical systems for the production and utilization of power for the multitudinous purposes of business, industry, and the community. Mechanical Engineering is one of the largest branches in the engineering field. This branch of the engineering profession is subdivided into heat, power, and machine design options with electives in aeronautical, metallurgical and industrial engineering. Devices for heating, air conditioning, refrigeration, engines and other mechanisms for the propulsion of vehicles and missiles on, under, or over land, sea, and air. tools, motors, and machines for all types of industrial production or research are just a few examples of the mechanical engineer’s contributions to the world.

Salaries and Rewards

Beginning salaries for inexperienced engineering graduates vary according to the type of agency seeking their services, geographical area in which the individual is employed, level of responsibility and nature of duties for particular positions, and the competition for engineering positions at any given time. Due to the shortage of engineers in recent years, graduates with no experience have commanded salaries ranging from an average low of $70,000 to an average high of $100,000 per year. Possessors of the Master’s degree begin at higher levels; those with a Doctorate in Engineering receive considerably

Friday, August 16, 2019


higher starting salaries. Aside from financial rewards, the successful engineer enjoys unlimited opportunity for creative achievement, the satisfaction of contributing significantly to the improvement of standards of living, and a distinctive position of trust and respect in the community. It should be noted that college engineering programs are very difficult. The student cannot expect to succeed without devoting himself entirely to his work in school and to related home assignments. Unless the student is willing to curtail or even forego a great many of the social activities generally associated with attendance at college or with young people of his age, academic problems will probably arise. Although the road to success in engineering is not an easy one, a career in the profession can be realized by a student willing to accept the obligations for required adequate preparation.

With Women

Finally, careers in engineering are projected to expand rapidly in the next decade. In this technologically advanced world, the discoveries and solutions being made affect the lives of everyone. Historically, women have been underrepresented in the industries that drive these advances in engineering technology. This mindset, however has been quickly changing. It is exciting to live at such a pivotal moment in history when women have such an incredible opportunity to change the face of industries, not only in engineering but across a variety of fields. Thankfully, our nation draws its intellectual power from 100% of the population, not 47.9%, as with many other nations. When I retired some years ago, 50% of my students were women. And, more often than not, they outperformed the men. Maybe they felt they had something to prove. Visit the author at: www. or Basketball Coaching 101 (Facebook)

through hoops (that is the reputation, but I don’t get to see any cats). I skip stopping for lunch so am able to condense the tour somewhat, which brings me back to the hotel at 2:30 pm. I indulge in Sanctum’s utterly stunning pool - I would rank one of the best resort pools in the world – an infinity pool of black and silver that shimmers as you swim, magnificently set with a view down to the lake, richly landscaped, a great size for actually swimming as well as playing around. It is also one of the most magnificent places just to lounge. I meet families from around the world. I am back in my room by 5 pm, to walk about a mile up the road from the resort into the nearby village of Maing Thauk. I am bound for the Friendship Bridge where one of the scavenges is to watch the sunset. I love to see the Burmese alphabet, with its circles and curley-cues, on signs (few have English translation, except for the Noble Aim PreSchool, my Rosetta Stone, and a traffic sign with a drawing of a parent holding a child’s hand, indicating a school crossing). I come upon a school holding a sports competition that has drawn a tremendous audience. Even though hardly anyone speaks English, we manage to chat (icebreaker: What is going on? Where is the bridge?). It’s a good thing I ask the fellow if I was going the right way to get to the Friendship Bridge I am looking for, because he directs me to turn left on the next corner (I would have gone straight). The Bridge connects many structures and from which people can get onto the scores of wooden boats that gather here, especially to offer sunset “cruises”, as well as walk to several restaurants. The views and the evening activity are just magnificent. It’s like watching the entire community walk by.

Travel is about seeing for yourself, but also gaining an understanding of one another, disabusing stereotypes or caricatures, and most significantly, not seeing others as “other”, which works both ways. In very real ways (and especially now), travelers are ambassadors, no less than diplomats. Boycotting destinations because of their governments, isolating people from one another, cutting off the exchange of ideas and people-to-people engagements is not how change happens – that only hardens points of view, and makes people susceptible to fear-mongering and all the bad things that have happened throughout human history as a result. “See for yourself,” Chalmers tells us. What I see in the people I’ve encountered is a kindness, a warmth of spirit, a sweetness among the people here. I see it in how parents hold their children, how the boatman, Wei Moi, shows such etiquette among the other boatmen, how helpful people are. And how readily they smile. This leg has been a Par 5 in difficulty (Par 6 being the most difficult during this, the 15th Global Scavenger Hunt) – which has entailed us going out of Yangon to Bagan, Mandalay and/or Inle Lake (many more rules on top of that, including no more than 2 flights), taking overnight bus or hiring a taxi or train, and so forth. But Chalmers devious design has worked – in just these four days, we really do immerse ourselves in Myanmar, though our itinerary most properly should be done in 11 days (there are several operators

who offer such trips). Inle Lake is worth at least a two or three day stay to be completely immersed in its spell. There is a tremendous amount to do and experience. You can reach Inle Lake by air, bus (Joyous Journey Express, known as JJ Express, provided excellent service; travel on the first-class bus geared to tourists,, or hire a driver to Inle Lake from various other major destinations in Myanmar (Bagan, Mandalay, Yangon). The closest airport to Inle Lake is Heho airport (HEH) which is 45 minutes away from the lake. The final challenge of this leg is to get back to our hotel, the Sule Shangrila, in Yangon by 6 pm, and for those competing to hand in their scorecards and proof of completing the scavenges. That’s when we will learn where in the world we will go next, and where we will all compare experiences.

Where are millennials and other groups moving to in the US?


s a side note, I do a lot of reading and researching for my columns to make sure my information is to the point and accurate and to the best of my ability, as educational as possible for our readers. This is extremely important to me considering all the inaccurate and phony information that is spewed and blasted out and dumped onto the internet and in newspapers. I imagine many believe what they hear and read at face value is accurate and truthful and may not question the validity of the information. I had mentioned a few columns ago, that if you want to fact check things that you read, see or hear, especially by our politicians, go to and voila, the truth can be had! Nothing is perfect in the real world, but transparency and accuracy for the most part can be ascertained with some careful and “Sherlock Holmes” type investigation. Now let’s get into this week’s column. The millennial group has been leaving our area in droves for a number of years, as I have previously explained, due to the high cost of purchasing, taxes, not having the necessary “large” down payment required as well as a lower than normal inventory of affordable homes, condos, coops and homeowner associations. Do you know where they are moving? Obviously, some of you know where your kids are relocating to and the fact that you may only see them or your grandchildren once a year or much less frequently compared to when they were here on Long Island. I have heard from many older homeowners who truly wish they could be around their children and grandchildren like before, which have been making them, ponder and consider moving closer to them in the near future. For those that could afford to stay, that represents a small percentage of the

BY PHILIP A. RAICES total, considering that many more families and individuals are leaving New York State than are coming to live here. The top five cities that seem to be attracting people, not only from New York State but other states are: 1.) Salt Lake City, Utah and its surrounding communities is the top place for many, which offers high employment rates (less than 3% unemployment) and magnificent surroundings. It’s a superb place to live as well as invest, especially for those in their twenties and thirties. The median home price for the second quarter of 2019 was $255,000-$663,125. But just two years ago in June of 2017 they ranged from $190,000 in Salt Lake City to $470,000 in South Jordan and Holladay (up 21+%). So those that had moved out there gained more appreciation while being able to get into the housing market at a reasonable cost. However, there are four more States/ cities which have gained a lot of traction of the last five to ten years. 2.) Seattle, Washington is the go to place for millennial group, which make up a sizable percentage of the population. Although prices have cooled a bit since 2018, prices have increased eight percent for homes less than $380,000, obviously due to the greater demand in that price point. The most expensive homes of $760,000 and higher still increased two percent. The middle tier saw a 4.5% increase and prices ranged from $355,000-655,000 in Pierce, Snohomish and King Counties. 3.) Austin, Texas is the third most popular destination and has an above normal job growth and is the second top city in the country for the number of job that have become available. Dell, Apple and Google are some of

the major players attracting new talent and is now called “Silicon Hills. Lastly, environmental sustainability is another factor by which millennials, who make “green practices” as a dominant and important variable in their mindset in relocating to Austin.” The median home price was $407,400 in May, up 5.8% year over year, according to the latest monthly report from the Austin Board of Realtors, which was published on June 20. 4.) Charlotte, North Carolina is the fourth most popular destination to relocate to and has seen one of the largest increases in populations from 2016-2017 (number 7 as per the U.S. Census Bureau), causing prices to increased 9.5% over the last year and the prediction is that they will continue to grow at 6.1% through 2020 (as per the Zillow research team) Supply is way below normal @ at 3.6 months in January 2019. (normal balanced supply is 5-6 months). And although inventory has increased slightly and sales have decreased slightly, prices are still up due to the demand for housing. Charlotte is a major banking and financial hub, second to New York City offering a slew of higher paying jobs, allowing many to purchase their first homes. Seven Fortune 500 companies are headquartered within the metro area, including Bank of America, Lowe’s and Honeywell. Microsoft’s East Coast headquarters are there too! 5.) The last great city people are gravitating to is Dallas, Texas. Extremely attractive job opportunities, job growth of 3.9+% as well as reasonable home prices. Real estate news site Point2 Homes reports that from December 2013 to December 2018, Dallas’ median home price increased from $229,900 to $285,000, a 24 percent

jump that equates to an additional cost of $55,100. However, compared to other surrounding towns studied, it had the lowest price appreciation, making it much easier for many to purchase a home. As you can see the typical price ranges (and real estate taxes too) in all the cities are considerably lower and much more affordable than our local Long Island towns, which makes many moving out of New York a “no brainer.” In order to compete with those other cities, and see improvements in our dwindling millennial populations, (and others), New York State and its politicians, really need to think outside the box, otherwise the writing is on the wall and the “brain drain” and future monies lost, will continue to be the detriment to all our communities.

A Deeper Look at Daylilies BY JEFF RUGG The botanical name for daylilies is Hemerocallis. It comes from two Greek words: Hemera is day, and kallos is beauty. The beauty of a daylily flower does last only one day. Thankfully, a mature plant may have over a hundred flowers. Daylilies come in a variety of sizes, colors and shapes. The smallest daylilies are under a foot tall, and the largest can be nearly 5 feet tall. A miniature daylily has flowers smaller than 3 inches across, but the plant may be any height. Large daylilies have flowers bigger than four-and-a-quarter inches across and can be carried on plants of any height. The original daylilies came in a few shades of yellowish orange. They now come in practically every shade of yellow, orange, red, purple and pink; they are getting close to pure white as well. Many have more than one color. When the center of the flower is a lighter color, it is called a watermark. If it is lighter outside, it is a halo; if only the outside edge of the flower is lighter, it is called a wire edge. A dark color in the center is called the eye zone. Daylilies are in the true lily family and have the same flower design: Three outer sepals surround three inner petals. They all open up to form the flower. Sometimes the flowers are trumpet-shaped, and sometimes they’re circular. When the petals and sepals are long and narrow, the flower shape is called a spider. If you have extra flowers, you can dip some unopened ones in your favorite batter recipe, fry them until golden brown and serve them at dinner. Hybridizing daylilies is an easy process, and so far, there are around 40,000 named varieties! A serious collector would have only a drop in the bucket if they had 1,000 varieties in their yard. When visiting a garden center to look for your garden plants, start with the following characteristics: First, look at the foliage. They are not blooming for longer than they are in bloom, so the leaves should look dark green and thick. The more fans of leaves it has, the more flower stalks it will produce. Second, the more buds there

are, the longer the blooming season. Some daylilies only bloom in the early summer, others in mid-season, and some during late winter or even almost all winter long in the Deep South. A few varieties are “ever-blooming,” such as Stella de Oro, and they do last almost the whole season. A few varieties rebloom once or twice during the season, but not with as many buds as the first time. It is best to judge daylily flowers in the heat of the afternoon sun. Some flowers begin to fade and melt away in the sun’s heat. Since the flower only lasts one day, it should have enough substance to make it through that day. Daylilies can have two sets of chromosomes in each cell nucleus, or they can have four sets. The tetraploids have four sets and are favored by many breeders who look at the extra genetic material as a source of new colors, shapes and sizes. Tets, as they are called, tend to have larger and thicker leaves and flowers. Tet flowers have enough substance to make it through the day, but so do many other daylilies. Daylilies can be planted in just about any soil type and at any sunlight level. The heaviest shade will not produce as many flowers. I have two

plants of the same variety; one is along a sunny, south-facing wall, and the other is in the shade of a silver maple. The sunny one blooms at least one month earlier than the shady one. They perform better if the soil has lots of loose organic matter and stays moist. They are pretty drought tolerant once established but bloom better if mulched and watered. They also often bloom better if they are divided after about four years in the ground. Early fall is the best time to do this, so think of it as a job to do right after the kids go back to school. They look nice when planted with ornamental grasses because the two plants have similar leaf and plant shapes. They also look nice when planted with other plants that have contrasting foliage shapes, like the broad-leafed hostas or the fine, dense foliage of Coreopsis verticillata. They send up leaves just as the daffodils finish flowering, so they hide the daffodil foliage as it dies, making them excellent companion plants. Daylilies are easy to grow for a beginner and fun to hybridize for an advanced gardener. They are low maintenance and have very few insect or disease problems. Every garden should have at least a few -- or is that a few hundred? -- varieties.

Legislator rallies local students over summer From page 10 over summer. “Over time, as I told people about the re-election campaign and discussions ensued I realized how he’s done really great things in our community, and I support his principles. I think he’s showing us he knows how to do a great job,” Mehta said. She added that her father was familiar with Legislator Arnold Drucker and helped guide her interests in researching policy. The experience this summer with peers she didn’t meet before -including Sophia Kim and others from her high school -- has opened up new doors. Mehta would like to explore both engineering and political science in her career, starting with current activities and what she can do at Jericho High School. She says a lot of Jericho students take on too many activities just to have another notch to add to their college applications. “I used to do that, but I came to this internship opportunity because I wanted to,” she noted. Hemani explains that at the Plainview office, mornings start off with literature and then all afternoon kids do group work, and she is active on the

Lafazan campaign’s policy research team. “Josh will come over and give us a topic -- our recent one was the Heroin and Opioid Epidemic -- so we researched about it and found out some of the different things young people can do to help fight it. We made a presentation about this to the entire staff and we did communications work with our draft/ sample policy plus some event planning work,” she said. Sophia Kim connected with Hemani as they each had the same teacher for Jericho High School’s AP Research (Social Science course) and Mehta’s Debate Club. In ninth grade last year, the club laid a foundation for pursuing her interests. “By the end of our year the entire Debate Club was one big family, coaches are like family -- sometimes at Jericho it gets very competitive but in the end, all our students are friends. At home I’m the oldest child and my parents do share with me their insights on national politics. I want to pick a career that can make me happy. But here, out of the dozens of interns I know maybe one or two from Jericho. We are all having

a great time and learning -- and I met Sophia who is a senior at my school and we became friends,” she said.

Beyond the Campaign: Remembering a Friend After Tragedy

At the time of the kids’ interviews with the Advance and News-Journal, Legislator Lafazan was delivering a message to the sea of interns in the office: “More than just being good politics, it is good for other young people to see how other young people are getting involved.” Lafazan announced on Thursday August 15 he will host a fundraiser in honor of his Syosset High classmate Tim Lafferty who along with his girlfriend Samantha Shaw was killed in a car accident on Sunday, July 28 on the Meadowbrook Parkway. The mayor of Laurel Hollow is starting a scholarship fund, the Timothy J. Lafferty Memorial Scholarship, as Tim was an exceptional athlete, and the scholarship $1,000 will be presented every school year to one Syosset High School graduate who is an athlete. “They were not texting and not drunk-driving, they were just hit by

another driver. The moral of the story is that life is very short and we want to enjoy every moment. Two, it is important to do things not involving politics. A lot of what we do as elected officials is beyond raising my hand to vote on something in Mineola (the county seat) -- a lot of what we do is making a difference for the people in our community,” Legislator Lafazan said. Lafazan stated his goal of raising $30,000 this month because he wants to endow the scholarship for the next 30 years. “Tim’s family has been through enough and they should not have to ask supporters and the community for money to keep Tim’s name in memory -- he was an exceptional kid and his memory should live on,” he said, adding that Minuteman Press has donated 4,000 flyers for the scholarship fundraising activities. Lafazan mobilized the interns last week and said a flyer will be placed on every door in his hometown community.

New bills will help curb bike ‘ride-outs’ From page 1 tle the police can do. “This is a really big issue that the police departments have been dealing with these past few months. As it stands now, they’re not really able to enforce anything as there’s no statute on the books dealing with these ride-outs.”

He said that a charge of reckless endangerment could be enacted but that it probably wouldn’t hold up in the court system. “We really need a law on the books that deals directly with this type of behavior,” said Ferretti. In order for the two bills to be passed, they first need to be brought in front of

the Nassau Committees legislature and then go before the full legislature. The third and final step would have the Nassau County executive signing off on the bills before they’d be passed into law. Ferretti said he expects the whole process to take a couple of months and that he hopes the bills would take effect sometime in October.
