What is a Wasp

Every year, around 62 people die from hornet, wasp, or bee stings. These creatures may be little, but they can be very dangerous if you or someone you know has an allergy.

So what is a wasp? And how can you identify them? We'll discuss these ...

The Jaffe Briefing - July 29, 2021

TRENTON – So, yeah, masks are now “strongly recommended” indoors where there are crowds, says Gov. Phil Murphy, following the latest federal guidance. While this is a sensible request, as the COVID numbers rise in the state, not everyone is on board. Just ask super-conservative Sen. Michael Doherty, who dashed off a press release saying: “The Murphy administration ...

The Jaffe Briefing - July 28, 2021

STATEWIDE – Gov. Phil Murphy scored some quick mid-summer PR yesterday, dropping a press release announcing that nine rest areas on the Garden State Parkway will be renamed after New Jersey icons. But it may take some time for all to gel. Will we really start saying stuff like, “Hey, hit me up for some nuts at the James Gandolfini" (service area in Montvale.)? Or "do they ...

STATEWIDE – Even the Washington Post now realizes New Jersey’s awkward relationship with the feds. The Garden State famously gives more tax dollars to Uncle Sam than it can ever dream of getting back in financial aid, infrastructure and other goodies. (In fiscal 2018, New Jersey received less back on every federal tax dollar paid ...

ROSELLE PARK – The story of a local woman with vulgar anti-Biden signs appeared to be over after a municipal court judge sided with basic logic and decency, ordering her to remove them from her fence. But now the ACLU is involved, for some reason, representing the resident in this senseless legal battle that has grabbed the attention of CNN. Mayor Joseph ...

The Jaffe Briefing - July 23, 2021

ON THE RAILS – $673 million? Wow, it’s almost like real money, as New Jersey, Connecticut and New York squabble over federal pandemic cash in the topsy-turvy world of mass transit. The total pot contains $14.2 billion, to be divided among the three states, NJ.com reports. The three states use a federal funding formula to figure out the split, but now greedy New York wants to switch ...

The Jaffe Briefing - July 22, 2021

DOWN THE SHORE – Sure, you can stay in an overpriced seaside motel that hasn’t been updated since the waning days of the Carter Administration. But, for the same cash – about $250 a night – you can sleep on a yacht. NJ 101.5 reports that Airbnb has a summer listing for a big boat that sleeps five and features three bathrooms. It’s yours with a two-night minimum and ...
