  1. How does the AchieveLinks program work?
    The program is an online purchasing program. There are over 950 merchants in the program and it's free to join.
  2. What kind of items can I redeem with my points?
    The NDA AchieveLinks program offers a variety of rewards; from cameras to barbeque equipment, concert tickets to NFL football tickets.
  3. Is this a credit card program?
    No. You do not have to apply for a new credit card to use NDA's AchieveLinks program.
  4. What is the toolbar and how can it help me?
    The purpose of the toolbar is to remind you of which merchants participate in the program without visiting the AchieveLinks website.

NJ advances demolition of Sandy-hit properties
Philidelphia Inquirer
It's not hard to see why they call Sandy the "Wicked Witch of the East" in northern Ocean County. Cedar-shingled A-frame homes blown and washed from their foundations do look a lot like they crash-landed from the sky onto sand-covered streets. But not for much longer, as a walking tour led by state Environmental Protection Commissioner Bob Martin made clear recently.

Elder Demolition

With thunderous blasts, a New York holdout tumbles to Earth
The New York Times
VideoBriefIn the clear, early morning sky above Governors Island, N.Y., Building 877 was making its last stand. The 11-story building, now stripped of its facade, was once home to members of the Coast Guard and their families, but had been vacant since 1996. Now, to accommodate a city plan to turn the island into a park, and the site into two softball fields with adjacent hills, Building 877 was to be imploded Sunday.
