Ed Hauser celebrating victory saving Whiskey Island, Cleveland Ohio, at AJ Rocco's

EDWARD J. "CITIZEN" HAUSER, beloved son of Walter and Theresia; dearest brother of Harold, Sylvia, Thomas, and Caroline Widemann (husband Reiner); dear uncle of Nicole and Erik; dear friend of Cathy Stahurski; dear nephew, cousin and friend to many.

Ed Hauser died suddenly November 14, 2008. Northeast Ohio has lost its most ardent, studied and tenacious citizen activist.

Ed's Papers

  Susan--any word on the status of cataloging Ed's papers?  Has CSU committed to archiving the collection?

CSU and Ed Hauser

  Hi Susan...I heard today that CSU will take on Ed's collection.  Any more to add to this story? :)  Some good news for a Friday.  Yes ?!

yes CSU Special Collections

I took Bill Barrow to meet with Sylvia several weeks ago on a snowy Sunday afternoon. The family will go through the materials and then contact Barrow to turn over the materials for archiving as I understand it. Barrow also indicated that they would welcome volunteers to help with scanning the materials to make them available digitally. As you might imagine the volume of public records and Ed's own notes is vast.

Making IT happen

  Thank you Susan for making this really happen. 

Ed Hauser WAY

On Friday 3.20.09 Cleveland Planning Will consider the naming of Whiskey Island Way to Ed Hauser Way. The meeting begins at 9am

spammer?

 

Yes - fahim@xplorebangladesh.net

Don't you love globalization - it is worth somebody paying Fahim in Bangladesh to screw up REALNEO. That's our New Economy at work.

Who was "hacked by 1923Turk-Grup"

 

I checked out www.xplorebangladesh.com - the URL for the email address for several spammers on REALNEO - you saw their homepage was a promotion for "Hacked by 1923Turk-Grup", which is not explained there or anywhere on-line I can find... although they seem to have "hacked" many sites and have many promo videos on YouTube, etc.

They've tried to break REALNEO several ways I know of, so far.

So, we are being hacked by 1923Turk-Grup.

spam problems

Is some of this to be expected or is realneo a target? Since spam has become such a part of everything else, I wasn't surprised to see it here. I do think that being able to embed a code that changes formats to be a problem. Is that common with spam?

Spammer hacking CSS

 

Realneo has been hacked over the last week at least three times that I know of by this spammer.   The first hack was of a post put up last year by lmcshane regarding Brian Cummins .   The hack made the CSS scramble the Cummins post so the post was down the page from the more recent comments - in other words - the hacker made the post turn upside down.  
 
Jeff Schuler straightened the Cummins CSS out but the same CSS scramble has now happened two more times.  
 
There was the dog spam link (<p>- <a href="http://www.hobbybreeders.com">dog breeders</a> -</p>) and cat spam link also hacked the CSS in the same way as the Cummins post.   Now there is the same spam at this link on Realneo “is it fungus or mushroom” with the feline4us url in the right hand margin.   
 
Jeff S, how does the new – non administrative – hacker/user get at the CSS code or insert code which re-arranges the Drupal CSS?
 
 
AS TO MOTIVE
 
I don’t believe there is anything more sinister about this hacking than someone (in India or where ever) who has been hired by the Felines4us.com (and the dogs for sale site) to install parasite spam links in whatever web sites they can place the spam in – Realneo is an easy target because of Realneo’s open and immediate user sign up policy.
 
Below is the Domain information about the registrant for felines4us.com and hobbybreeders.com Both are registered to Sal Salman and Cane Design in Florida.   If you look at the sites you can see they have lots of google ads at the top and bottom.   Many people like cats and dogs.   I think these are bogus sites – not of a cat or dog lover entrepreneur, but of a web savvy person who picked a dog and cat url to drag clicks to the advertisers on the site.  I would stay wide away from these "dog" and “feline” web sites –
 
  They are both bogus.
_______________________________________________________________________________
AS TO RECOURSE AGAINST CANE DESIGN AND/OR SAL SALMAN
It would be reasonably possible to file suit against both these entities in Florida, prove they contracted with someone (in India or wherever) to insert spam dog and cat links into Realneo, and recover 2 or 3 thousand in actual damages.   On top of the actual damages I would think you could convince a court to award to or three times actual damages as punitive damages.  This gets close to $10,000.00.   

 

Who knows an attorney licensed in Florida?

spam

I agree this hacking is probably not a conspiracy. This is why there is so much anti-hacking, anti-spam, anti-spyware software for sale. I do wonder what, if any, problems, realneo members would have as a result of this hacking for our own computers, especially Windows user. How open is open when the site is being used by members? Experts, please address if you can. 

breaking the page

The REALNEO site allows lot, relatively, in terms of the amount of stylistic content that can be copy-pasted into a blog post or comment.

The site theme, (the overall design of the page; the HTML/CSS template into which the system renders content,) was built using HTML tables for layout. This is well known, now, as poor practice for page layout, though it was quite commonly used back [I assume] when the theme was created.

The comments that are breaking the page layout are taking advantage of both these things. -- perhaps knowingly, but probably not.

Re-implementing the theme, table-less and according to W3C standards has been a pre-requisite on my to-do list for upgrading us to Drupal 6, anyway.

Remembering Ed Hauser on the 49th anniversary of his birth

Happy birthday Ed - we're still here and fighting for you - keep your blessing flowing...

We'll get to work updating your wikipedia article, when we get better focused down here... sorry to make you an orphan...

[edit] Biography

[edit] Early life and education

Hauser was the fourth of five children born to Walter and the late Theresia Hauser. He graduated from Maple Heights High School in 1979 and Cleveland State University in 1990.

An electrical engineer by training, Hauser was laid off by LTV Steel in the mid-90s. His appreciation for Lake Erie and the Cuyahoga River led him to fight for the protection of Whiskey Island, the scenic spit of shoreline where the Cuyahoga River meets Lake Erie.

[edit] Career

Hauser championed the preservation of natural landmarks and public access to these resources. As the head of Friends of Whiskey Island, Hauser fought to protect the last piece of natural shoreline in Cleveland. Hauser collected signatures for petitions, represented the public interest at hundreds[1] of commission meetings and other events. He spent personal funds, including from his retirement plan, as part of a campaign from 1998 to 2005 to preserve 20 acres (81,000 m2) of Whiskey Island as a park while blocking the expansion plans of the Cleveland-Cuyahoga County Port Authority.[2]

In addition to protecting Whiskey Island, Hauser also served as a citizen watchdog on Port Authority activities, championed a steel museum in Steelyard Commons, was vocal about Cleveland's lakefront plans and petitioned the lack of public referendum for the Cuyahoga County Medical Mart tax.

[edit] Death and afterward

Ed Hauser died on November 14, 2008.

Note - Ed's memory outlives these links on his wikipedia page...

Makes you think about what is lasting about real NEO, and where...

neoBridge is sure long gone, thanks to Ed's enemies...

neoBridge is sure long gone, thanks to Ed's enemies...

That was his baby, before he died... http://realneo.us/community-issue-i-90-bridge-and-innerbelt-trench/imagi...

And gone with Ed and his virtual and real activism has been any chance to do a good Innerbelt bridge redevelopment project in Northeast Ohio.

It would be hard to rest in peace under these circumstances...

Ed Hauser

Ed Hauser's example inspired me to take on the County Commissioners over the misuse of taxpayer money, which I did at one of their regular meetings. For my trouble I was subjected to a verbal attack by Commissioner Tim Hagan, something the rules wouldn't allow me to do to him, but I guess rules are for other people. Hagan never answered my criticisms, he lost his temper instead. I wear his vitriol as a badge of honor. Thank you Ed! I wouldn't have done it without you!

Ed's papers at CSU

I noticed the earlier posts about Ed's papers being with us at the CSU Library and thought I'd mention that we have been slowly inventorying them, in preparation to eventually offer a good finding aid to the collection.  As it happens, this is being done by a volunteer who comes in periodically, as there's no funding to make this happen any faster.  But, as always, the collection is not closed while we're doing this, it's just harder to use. 

Our aim is to include Ed in a web site we're gradually working up for Cleveland Memory on Cleveland's "alternative voices," featuring the collections we have about d.a. levy, Roldo Bartimole, and others.

Bill Barrow, Special Collections Librarian

 

Ed Hauser papers - Thanks Mr. Barrow & volunteer!

Hello Bill,  Thanks for coming on Realneo and updating us on the Hauser collection at CSU.  Your efforts, and the efforts of the volunteer(s) in preserving and catalogueing Ed's work are appreciated. Best, jeffb

I have to admit

I know nothing of Whiskey Island, and was googling about it and find the man Ed sure has some fans,   Still.

 

http://www.coolcleveland.com/blog/2010/08/dear-ed-hauser/

and this link says how it all started

http://www.clevelandmemory.org/irish/PG56.html

--snip-- The Irish who squatted there gave a new meaning to the island's name -- they made it a real island of whiskey. In its heyday it boasted of having 13 saloons, a considerable achievement since it was only a mile lona and a third of a mile across at its vtidest point. It was from the first and for many years remained the wildest, bawdiest section of Cleveland.[//]

So, it's name...hummm?, grin... Betty

 

The problem is, America is NOT a Democracy - it is a Republic! As our Founding Fathers established, can we keep it?
