This is REALLY screwy!

Two different problems popped up in print and online today: connecting stories from a main page to their conclusion on another page and maintaining the same content between print and online editions. And - surprise, surprise - they happened in today's Sports section.

Let's start with the Yankees article: the print and online editions both start the same on page 1S. The second image shows the correct continuation of the split sentence/word online on page 6S, while the third image shows that the rest of the 1S sentence has vanished in the print edition on 6S. In addition, the first four words in the 6S print edition are the last four words of the second 6S paragraph in the online version. If that's not bad enough, the third online 6S paragraph has been omitted in the print edition on 6S. After that point, they're the same.

As for the Giants story, the same beginning pattern emerges: both editions are identical on page 1S and the second image shows the correct continuation of the split sentence/word online on page 3S, but the third image shows that the print edition not only is missing the rest of the split sentence from 1S, but the entire rest of the story is completely different from the online version, which discusses what happened at certain points in the game, while the print edition discusses individual team members.

So much for the supposedly-identical online edition that print subscribers get access to...

1, 2. Two "is" problems: the first isn't needed and the second one is missing an "h".

3. This is in today's (Monday's) paper, but it was clearly written for yesterday's paper: "today's game" was played yesterday and "Monday's festivities" are tonight. Stale news.

This came from a local online "Daily".

My question is, if you missed the week's top stories, how can reading this article now be "reading it again"?

Just an observation.............

Today's crop of problem children includes a small one on the Business page and a boatload of doozies on one Sports page:

1. What kind of tax rate?

2. "Mets Notes" squared and a sandwich of two images

3. A red heading in an unusual place

4, 5. Two more double-image sandwiches, with one of the pictures sitting in two separate articles


Nice to see they're making an effort to fix things.

Wasn't World Imports on 17N in Rochelle Park? next to the Hole in the Wall? I think they sold some furniture and decorative items.

That sounds right.

I was working and if you actually went to my site and saw what I wrote and noticed its tone, you wouldn't ask that question.

And I still have no idea why she was there.

But you can buy the nice picture of her, Homer................you'd be the first.

Are you sure that was the name? I don't know about the  rest of  the 80s, but in 1983 the record store there was called Record World.

The very first picture under "Hackensack" on  my site is one I took of Pia Zadora at Record World in 1983.

I do remember a store called World Imports, but I'm pretty sure it was elsewhere. I also think they sold interesting stuff because I flashed on the name as soon as I read what you wrote.

Anybody out there remember anything about World Imports?

Two problems on the same page:

1. That last semi-sentence is missing "to return" and "Braves".

2. Obvious

1. The county's biggest paper can't spell "Bergen"?

2. The fourth word ("want") is incorrect, although it certainly sounds like the right word, which is actually an old-fashioned word: "wont" (not "won't"). Google "as is his wont" to verify.

It's also a word that probably gets auto-corrected a lot. In any event, "want" is incorrect.

Jets' coach Todd Bowles had already been identified in the article and had been referred to as "Bowles" two paragraphs earlier.

For some reason, someone added a "The" before "Bowles" name here.

I couldn't get any close shots because it was a workday (I usually do that on weekends). I wanted to see if any sort of a span was put in place yet, but I could see from Foschini Park that there wasn't.

If anyone is aware of when span placement will occur, kindly let me know so I can shoot it.

I saw this gentleman walking up State St and then making a right onto Ward, where he decided to visit Raffsonni (!) for some reason, but it was closed. I wonder where he went next.

If you're not familiar with Raffsonni's wares, click on the pics in this link: http://www.raffsonniusa.com/Photo-Gallery.html
