SAIC uses Crain's to defend itself CityTime tax payer's Titanic by Suzannah B. Troy

This is for people following my YouTube and blog postings on CityTime, the tax payers Titanic or what to know about a NYC technology scandal at City Hall that for far too long those making the big bucks off of CityTimes flaws did their bet to keep quiet like Sleeping Beauty but more and more people are learning about this economic disaster. 

If you visit the Crain's piece I am giving you a link to SAIC and you can read what that stands for and how SAIC is using Crain's to defend it's reputation.   CityTime was suppose to save the city money by using technology from hand prints to using computers to sign in and instead it seems like a scam to make consultants even richer.   There are over 200 consultants and some are getting close to half a million and some a million but CityTime is about to bust the 1 billion dollar mark and CityTime is very flawed....flawed is a kind word for hunk of junk, a black hole sucking tax payers money, a scam or sham....read on....

May 27, 2010.

You can find the first blog posting that goes in to the CityTime and SAIC in the text portion of this YouTube link above.

I give you a link to this woman Ali Winston's article that gets in to SAIC and Iraq and even the FBI.

Check it out.

Go to my main blog and search under CityTime to find all my postings....www.suzannahbtroy.blogspot.com

Juan Gonzalez's work covering CityTime has been outstanding and indepth so you must check out Ali Winston's piece from City Limits that connects the dots with SAIC to federal level scandals  and Gonzalez's series that is focused here in NYC.   Juan Gonzelez's series of pieces exposing CityTime are all on The New York Daily News website are a must read.  

Renewal is this Sept. and I am one of many that feels rather than renew we need an investigation.

Even better would be a full refund of tax payers money which is moving towards the billion dollar mark for a massively flawed system and this article says Joel Bondy is laying low.

I would like to know how much he earns as a city employee vs. a consultant or what....?  What is his role with CityTime and NYC gov fully explained along with other consultants especially anyone that has ties to NYC gov and or Bloomberg and friends.   I don't have a press pass and I am finding NYC gov is not eager to answer questions and or be transparent.   Maybe a press pass would help....?

But SAIC has also had high-profile problems over the years. In the early 1990s, the company and six of its employees pleaded guilty to making false statements in their handling of work at EPA Superfund sites. In 2004, the Pentagon's inspector general faulted SAIC's performance on a contract to rebuild the Iraqi media. The following year, the FBI blamed SAIC for botching the development of the bureau's new "Trilogy" information management system (although the Justice Department inspector general said the FBI deserved much of the blame). And the company was still wrangling into 2007 with the Greek government over whether SAIC deserved full payment for a security system it developed for the 2004 Athens Olympics.

Rishat Kamalov, Robert Lederman, Hiss & Spit Union Square by Suzannah B. Troy

Above is the link to my first photo of Rishat Kamalov which is quite large.  Today I had hoped to make it to Coney Island to see the mermaids in The Mermaid Parade and activists, friends, characters....maybe ride the Cyclone again in the front seat....my favorite spot.   Kamalov's family sells his work at Union Square but may be forced to move....

I spoke with the Kamalov's devoted wife and daughter selling his wonderful photos and they had their Artist Power sign up.  They told me because of the changes put in place they would most likely be moving to Union Square.

In the meantime I told them today 1010WINS reported Robert Lederman in suing Rudy Giuliani's predecessor and I expected Robert to win and defeat the mayor king Bloomberg the way he did Guiliani.

Because I feel too tired to make it to Coney Island here is a shot of mine on my humble IPhone 3GS but get ready folks my new IPhone is on the way with a much better camera and HD video plus ZOOM!!!!!

If you look closely you can see the base of the Cyclone!  If you haven't ridden the Cyclone it is highly recommended and sit in the front seat!!!!!!!!

My 3GS was white but you could only get the new phone in black.  I hope to make a documentary from start to finish on my phone.  I wish it was the Giuseppi Logan story....which I have up as a YouTube documentary.  I have a series following NYC characters, artists, etc. but not all were filmed entirely on my Iphone and the 3GS was not HD.  I love this photo of mine too!  I love Rishat Kamalov's Coney Island Cyclone photos and now I have two!

Instead I bought a small photo of Kamalov's and I love it because of how he uses color and how he framed the shot!  "How Sweet it is!"

I love this woman's face and smile.   She and beautiful kittens are roughing the heat in hopes of finding homes for kittens and cats in need.  I made a donation and if you are a loving kind soul please adopt a kitty cat in need!

Thanks, hugs and love,
