Man put hidden camera in bathroom of Paramus, Wayne homes, police say

CLOSE

When someone is arrested and charged with a crime in New Jersey, police departments observe a protocol that includes the reading of Miranda Rights.

A West New York contractor was charged with invasion of privacy after he admitted to putting a camera in the bathrooms of homes in Paramus and Wayne, police said. 

Romeo Sanchez, 47, admitted to police that he put the cameras in the bathrooms after the Paramus resident reported a suspicious electronic device in their bathroom on Aug. 25, Paramus Police Chief Kenneth Ehrenberg said in a statement. 

Police found it to be a “micro” camera with a memory card in one of the walls of the bathroom, the statement said, where the memory card had video clips of the bathroom and a bathroom at a different location.

Sanchez was identified by the resident as a contractor they hired to replace a window, where Sanchez said he didn’t finish and needed to come back, the statement said.

Police located Sanchez, who confessed to putting the camera in the Paramus home and planned to get it back when he came to “finish his job,” police said. Sanchez also identified the videos of the different location as a home in Wayne.

The Original Frameless Showers Doors Company Announces Reasons to Update Bathrooms

The Original Frameless Showers Doors Company Announces Reasons to Update Bathrooms

A local manufacturing company, The Original Frameless Shower Doors company, has recently announced to the public in Coral Springs why homeowners need to update their bathrooms.

Coral Spring, FL – The Original Frameless Shower Doors company lists the top three reasons homeowners choose to update their bathrooms.  The first reason is simply that the bathroom looks dated.  The fixtures look like something out of a 1974 bathroom.

The home is over 30 years old, the problem is probably the sliding shower doors inCoral Springs. The previous owners may not have been diligent about keeping the tracks clean.  A good reason to replace the sliding doors is to purchase frameless glass doors.

According to The Original Frameless Shower Doors company, the second reason homeowners choose to update their bathrooms is that the glass in their shower doors begins to look cloudy.  Despite repeated scrubbings, the doors are still not clear.

This happens because a regular shower door glass is porous.  Soap scum can get into the pores of the glass.  The Original Frameless Shower Doors company recommends that when homeowners shop for sliding tub doors in Coral Springs they check for a protectant called StayCLEAN.  Most homeowners don’t know about this protectant that keeps glass doors clean for years to come.

The Original Frameless Shower Doors company also notes that safety is an issue in an outdated bathroom.  The hardware holding the doors together may have worn out over time.  It is better to get clamps, hinges, and door handles that have been tested and retested at the factory.  Homeowners need to know it is safe to lean on the towel rack without it falling down.  They also need to know that the glass is a safety glass and won’t break.

It comes as an expert has warned the UK government could be forced to tell university students to remain on campuses during the Christmas break,

Authorities are worried about the risk of spreading Covid-19 into students’ local communities when they return home.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock has not ruled out the possibility that university students would have to stay away from home over Christmas if major outbreaks continue on campuses.

Outbreaks in university accommodation in Scotland have prompted First Minister Nicola Sturgeon’s government to take emergency action.

Students in Scotland are quarantining in their dormitories and being told not to go to the pubs this weekend, following outbreaks affecting hundreds of students.

One student said she has now been isolating for nearly a month, having been placed in an initial 14-day quarantine on arrival from California.

The teenager and three other people in her eight-person flat in Glasgow University’s Murano Street Student Village have now tested positive for Covid-19.

The complex is the university’s largest halls of residence and can house 1,175 students

The 18-year-old, who is studying international relations and sociology, said she is having to wash her clothes in the sink as the laundry is outside the flat.

The residents of the flat had already been isolating for five days when she received her positive test result on Friday morning.

She said: “With this many kids in this small an area, it was bound to happen.

“We have it, so the negative people are cooking. They will drop off food outside our doors.

These West Village Public Bathrooms Are Open Despite The Pandemic

WEST VILLAGE, NY — Among the many small inconveniences imposed by the coronavirus pandemic has been the temporary closure of public facilities we once depended on for comfort — or a bathroom break.

Thankfully, some public restrooms remain open, and a new report by the Manhattan Borough President’s office compiled more than 100 of them across the borough, including their hours and wheelchair accessibility.

Discussion around access to public bathrooms has increased with a rise in people experiencing homelessness in the city and an aligning decrease in the available indoor bathrooms.

Patch put together the four restrooms that remain open in Midtown — here they are, ordered, roughly, from furthest north to furthest south. Scroll to the bottom to click through the interactive map from the Borough President’s office.

Australian writer reveals the strange culture shocks she faced while living in America

An Australian writer who has spent months living in the United States has shared the noticeable differences between the two countries, including how you pay for petrol, use public bathrooms and buy alcohol.

Madolline Gourley, 30, from Brisbane, Queensland, runs an online blog called One Cat At A Time, and prior to the coronavirus lockdown, spent more than two years cat sitting for families in the States.

During those lengthy stays she became acutely aware of the way Americans live their day-to-day lives and how it differs from the Australian lifestyle, from road rules to adding tax to every purchase you make.

So what are the main variances?

1. Pay for petrol before filling up 

In Madolline’s experience Australians will always put petrol in the car first before paying at the counter, so the station attendant knows how much gas they’ve taken.  

But in the US customers swipe their EFTPOS card, enter their postcode – also called a ZIP code – and then start to fill the car up.  

‘Or you can walk into the service station and pay cash, but you still have to pay before you can fill up,’ she told FEMAIL.

‘You can also select $50 when doing the EFTPOS transaction, but if your car only takes $33, $25, or $41.90, you only get billed for that. Not the $50. 

‘This confused me a lot to begin with because I was concerned I was being billed for the full amount.’
