Beware Missing Dot in Email Address – Scam Alert
Doppelganger domains would include “mailyahoo.com” instead of the correct “mail.yahoo.com,” or “seibm.com” instead of the correct “se.ibm.com” that IBM uses for its division in Sweden.
Beware the Doppelganger
Doppelganger is a German term for a “ghostly counterpart of a living person” — and it’s an apt name for this scam.
The crooks purchase a doppelganger, then set it up on the Internet so that all mail that’s mistakenly addressed without the dot comes to their server, note researchers of the security consulting firm Godai Group in an eye-opening report (PDF) released Sept.
Godai’s Peter Kim and Garrett Gee spent six months measuring the doppelganger danger by setting up dot-missing variations of legitimate email domains run by every Fortune 500 company.
Over that time they were able to collect more than 120,000 misaddressed emails, some containing trade secrets, contracts and invoices complete with credit card information. Users’ email login information and employee data were also harvested.
Overall, the researchers concluded that nearly one-third of the Fortune 500 are susceptible to such attacks.
In fact, some of those companies, including Dell, Cisco, Yahoo and DuPont, had already been targeted by doppelgangers registered to addresses in China that were previously associated with scammer attacks. The doppelganger domain emailkohls.com, aimed at the Kohl’s department store chain, was registered to a Canadian post office box.
The Bounce-Back Solution
The take-home message of the study: Companies should themselves buy up doppelganger domains to prevent scammers from using them.
To combat more traditional typosquatting, many companies already purchase Internet addresses that are misspelled versions of their legitimate websites.
And while mistyping an email address often (but not always) results in the message being bounced back to the sender, no bounce-back occurs if it goes to a doppelganger domain set up by a scammer.

From Cleveland Magazine, January 1975
Before dawn on the first day,
the battle lines were drawn.
Plain Dealer was
pickets from the
unit of the
Cleveland Newspaper Guild began
their slow, circular marches at the
entrances to the newspaper’s dismal building on Superior Avenue,
they were not just more working
people on strike. Not like the coal
miners or auto workers or bus drivers or a hundred other unions
whose walk-outs touch most of us
only indirectly, if at all.
No, these strikers immediately
upset the daily routine of Clevelanders by the hundreds of thousands. The city’s morning newspaper, familiar as soggy toast
crumbs in the breakfast coffee,
was suddenly missing. As of that
moment, “Ohio’s largest” was no
longer a newspaper claiming it existed to serve the public’s* right to
know; from that day, it was a private, profit-seeking company divided between management and labor-and let the public be damned.
Each day the strike lasted,
The Plain Dealer lost thousands of dollars
in revenue. One estimate put the loss at $450,000 a week. Over at The Cleveland
Press, the “newspaper that serves its readers,” the loss was potentially
even greater: Its very future was at stake. From the first day of ~the strike,
Press advertising salesmen were ordered not to go after the PD’s exclusive accounts.
Then, within a week, the Press stopped its own presses, leaving the city in
a total newspaper blackout. Competition between the two dailies was shelved.
More distressing still, though, were rumors that flew claiming the Press would
emerge from the strike fatally wounded. That it would die, or soon merge with
the stronger Plain Dealer.
And let the public be damned.
On the picket line the first day, many of the strikers wore the kelly green
Guild Local One jacket. The Guild is a white-collar union, and most of its members-reporters
and copy editors-at the PD possess a bachelor’s degree or better. Local One,
as its number implies, is the oldest Guild membership in the nation. It was
founded at the Press in 1933, largely at the instigation of nationally syndicated
columnist Heywood Broun. The Pl) was not organized until 10 years later. Logically,
its members might feel more akin to the whitecollar PD management than to the
blue-collar craft unions also at the newspaper. The printers and other printing
crafts sport kelly green jackets, too. One quadrant of a crest on the Guild
jacket depicts a pair of horseshoes: not as a totum for luck, but to commemorate
the “day of infamy” in 1972, during the last newspaper strike, when Cleveland
mounted policemen horrified the labor community here by charging into a Guild
picket line at The Plain Dealer.
The outcry then-this is a union town, with more than a quartermillion organized
workers-resulted in a city ordinance banning mounted cops from strike scenes.
Whether or not top editors at the PD had called for horses is still in dispute;
that they called the cops on their own reporters is not. If nothing else, that
day demonstrated publicly how badly relations between the newspaper’s executives
and its editorial staff had deteriorated. Since then, if anything, things have
only gotten worse. Sitting in on a pre-strike bargaining session, United Auto
Workers district director Bill Casstevens told the PD negotiators, “You treat
your professionals worse than the assembly line workers at Lordstown.”
The bitterness on both sides of the table was real. Jack Weir, Guild executive
secretary since 1964, the man paid some $20,000 a year to work out Guild labor
disputes with both Cleveland newspapers, wore his kelly green jacket with the
horseshoes on the crest to the bargaining table before the strike. One of the
nicer things he told Leo Ring, The Plain Dealer’s resident Newhouse
man-the Newhouse organization has owned the paper since 1967–during a negotiating
session was, “Leo, when you die, they’re going to bury you face down-so you
know exactly where you are headed!” Ring, whom the strikers called “The Enforcer,”
is known for stringing together inflammatory expletives when referring to the
Guild. The statement of a retired Plain Dealer executive may accurately
reflect the management estimation of Weir: “I think Weir is an ass. He’s a very
stupid, abrasive character.”
The issues in the strike-the real, underlying issues-were complex, far more
than mutual intransigence over a wage package. Ostensibly, the company decided
to suffer the strike rather than budge from the wage “pattern” set in a previous
settlement with the newspaper truck drivers. The issues went beyond even the
disputed discharge of a Guild officer, J. Stephen Hatch, and treatment of another
reporter, Robert J. Dolgan. The ugliness that had been building to the boil-over
point for the past four years in the second-floor editorial offices of Ohio’s
largest newspaper-that was the underthe-table reason behind the strike.
In fact, pre-strike conventional wisdom argued that this strike would never
happen. A Guild strike two contract periods in a row was itself practically
unprecedented among today’s big-city newspapers. This strike was made all the
more unconventional by the perilousness of these economic times for the country
in general and newspaper publishing in particular. Two years ago, for example,
the Newark (N.J.) Evening News ceased publishing after 88 years following
a lengthy Guild strike; Newark has a metropolitan circulation area of more than
1,600,000 persons. Obviously, no Guild member here looked forward to surviving
on strike benefits that ranged from $35 to $65 a week.
Late on Halloween, the night before the first day, almost every one of the
PD unit’s 225 Guild members gathered at the Amalgamated Clothing Workers Hall,
2227 Payne Avenue, to watch the last minutes of their contract tick off as the
witching hour neared-and to shout almost unanimous reaffirmation of their determination
And so, the ineffable unreality of the cardboard-sign-carrying pickets, in
the high spirits, that first day. Don Bean, the feisty chief of the PD’s two-man
southwest suburbs bureau, a veteran of past strikes as a Guild officer, observed,
“The first day is always euphoric.”
Bean’s by-line had not appeared in print for months, in protest over, among
other things, the Hatch-Dolgan issues. Another fervid Guildsman, Robert T. Stock,
currently president of Local One, refused to continue writing his popular column
on the PD editorial pages in similar protest. Trudging the picket line the first
day, Bean began growing a “strike beard,” vowing not to shave again “until the
strike is over or my wife kicks me out of the house.”
Unreality was only heightened by goings-on inside
The Plain Dealer building.
Only a week before, publisher editor Tom Vail [see CLEVELAND MAGAZINE, November
1974] ad made his latest appearance on page one of his newspaper. In a story
headlined, “Vail bids to head off newspaper strike here,” a letter signed by
Vail,was quoted as threatening that, unlike during the 129-day strike in 1962-63,
the most acrimonious newspaper strike in city history, this time The
Plain Dealer intended to continue publishing. Another PD editor, not
Vail, was the real author of the letter, a reliable source insisted. Nonetheless,
that public airing of the dirty linen of PD labor relations was not
only indecent for a major newspaper, it produced two undesirable (for management)
byproducts: First, the Guild demanded and got equal time, forcing Vail to read
on the front page of his newspaper that the letter in question was “self-serving,”
“based on second-hand information . . . distortions and gross misrepresentations
of the truth”; and secondly, the organized labor community, until then mildly
indifferent to the situation, suddenly started worrying about the broader implication
of Vail’s threat-that the craft unions at the PD might be forced to
cross Guild picket lines, pitting union against union-and began working up active
sympathy for the Guild cause.
Frank Valenta, then president of the Cleveland AFL-CIO Federation of Labor,
started getting anxious phone calls from member unionsretail clerks, teachers
and others. “The whole Cleveland labor community was up in the air,” Valenta
told U.S. District Judge Ben C. Green, at a hearing at which The Plain Dealer sought a court order to force the craft unions to cross the Guild lines.
Green ruled against the PD management.
Still, on the first day the
PD management showed every sign of preparing
to make good their threat to publish. After a night, perhaps restless, spent
on cots erected for the occasion, key members of the management and 19 senior
advertising and circulation employees were sequestered inside The Plain Dealer plant, in anticipation of the pickets. The 19 had been secretly trained
to operate the mammoth presses-shipped all-expenses-paid to Oklahoma City for
a three-week crash course at Southern Production Press, Inc., a “strikebreaker’s
school,” as Leo Ring himself characterized it in court testimony.
Rumor had it these “scab pressmen” had been ordered to report for work at
10 the night before with clothing and personal items for an indefinite stay.
Occasionally, one of the “scabs” would venture to an upper-floor window and
peer stonily down at the enemy on the sidewalk.
Meanwhile, the most unreal touch yet. The day before, October 31, a half-dozen
men checked into the Marriott Inn on West 150th Street under reservations made
in the name of an assistant to PD business manager Roy 0. Kopp. Two
of the men were from New Orleans, where The TimesPicayune and The are both part of the national, New York-based Newhouse chain,
as is The Plain Dealer; the other four were from Portland, where Newhouse
runs The Oregonian and The Oregon Journal. The six were reportedly
experienced pressmen, imported to Cleveland to provide “technical assistance”
to the 19 men the PD had trained. Kopp would testify in federal court
that the six non-union imports were ordered to return home before they ever
made it inside the PD building.
Cleveland Ordinance 13.112501, entitled “Employment of Persons Where a Lockout
or Strike Exists,” specifically prohibits the employment of professional strikebreakers.
The Plain Dealer management either didn’t know it was treading hazardous
legal ground, or it didn’t care.
“Cots brought in, scabs trained and brought in from out of town,” muttered
one striking Guildsman.”Good God, this is like something out of the Thirties!”
It was unreal. It was war. Not another strike — all-out war.
On the sixth day of the strike the
Press printed The Plain Dealer masthead beneath its own. Historically, that tactic harkened back to 1956,
when in fact Cleveland published a triple mastheaded newspaper, an event
probably unique in American journalism. The intent, then as now, was twofold:
to win psychological points by a show of publisher unity; and to obtain, hopefully,
an excuse for a nonstruck newspaper to lock out its employees. That’s exactly
what happened in ’56. The Press was struck. The newspaper truck drivers
refused to deliver editions of the now-defunct News and the PD
with multiple mastheads, and both papers closed down.
This time the drivers didn’t bite — until a new wrinkle was added to the tactic.
On the ninth day the Press ordered the drivers to deliver double mastheaded
editions to both Press and PD delivery stops. The drivers balked,
and Press editor Tom Boardman posted a notice on the city room bulletin
board which read, in part: “To All Employees: Because of the current dispute with
the Newspaper Guild, The Cleveland Press has found it necessary, temporarily,
to suspend publication as of today. . . . The Cleveland Press regrets
this situation has occurred, since it affects so many loyal and faithful employees,
as well as the general public. We have demonstrated our great concern for and
interest in resolving the dispute throughout the negotiations and will continue
in our efforts to resolve the dispute
so that normal operations can be resumed at the earliest possible time.” Next
to it, in a handwritten addendum, Boardman expressed his “deep personal regrets.”
Nonetheless, the city was without a daily newspaper.
The strike days-newspaper-less days-stretched into weeks. A seige mentality
replaced the initial euphoria on both sides. In the words of Cuyahoga County
Common Pleas Judge Francis E. Sweeney, who attempted unsuccessfully to mediate
between the warring parties in the early days of the strike, “It won’t be settled
until one side or the other feels the pressures are just too great.”
Pressures aside, the deep-seated causes behind the strike were not likely
to be settled soon-even after the strike was over. Those root causes were the
real “why” of the strike, the “why” that deprived Clevelanders of their daily
news, lingerie ads, TV movie listings, state lottery results and death notices.
Stated at its over-simplest,
The Plain Dealer during the past five
or so years has become an increasingly lousy place to work. Reporters at every
newspaper worth the name think of editors as smug blue-pencil pushers who don’t
remember (if they ever knew) what it means to be out on the street scrounging
for news. Editors accuse reporters of lacking discipline, experience and horse
sense. That adversary relationship, day to day, is normal. At The Plain Dealer mutual mistrust and disrespect between editors and reporters has snowballed,
and that is not normal. The non-communication in both directions is not normal.
Editorially, as a result, The Plain Dealer is a sick newspaper.
And Cleveland, as a result, has become an increasingly lousy newspaper town,
with an ever bleaker immediate future. To appreciate why, it is necessary to
dredge up past history.
When Sam Newhouse bought Cleveland’s morning newspaper from the heirs of Liberty
E. Holden, founder of the Sunday and morning Plain Dealer, in 1967,
he found a news operation that was in its best shape in years. Whether completely
deserved or not, the New- i, house organization carefully cultivates an image
of never meddling with its newspapers’ editorial product. And in the beginning,
at least, Newhouse let Tom Vail and t his editors have their head-not even blinking
at huge expenditures for expanded manpower, coverage and travel.
The Newhouses wanted to go to work on the production side of the paper first,
anyway. That apparently suited Vail just fine, since his interest lay more on
the editorial than the business side of the operation. From a management view,
conditions in the PD’s composing room had been allowed to go to hell.
“We had one of the wildest ITU [Interrfational Typographical Union] situations
in the country,” recalls former make-up editor Cy Wainscott, now in charge of
special projects at the PD. “Literally, when I wanted something done in the
composing room, I wouldn’t go to the supervisor. I’d go straight to a chapel
chairman [union official].”
Not long before the sale, management did make one counterattack. The head
of the ITU local, Newell Frizzell, was co-opted, installed as composing room
supervisor. Frizzell, now a PD labor relations man, was one of the 19
men sent to Oklahoma City before the strike to learn to run the presses.
Still, when Newhouse troubleshooter Leo Ring arrived here after the sale to
oversee Sam’s biggest and brightest newspaper investment, he was heard to complain,
“This is the worst composing room in North America!” Featherbed Heaven, certain
editorial side cynics called it: overstaffed, underworked, stubbornly resistant
to technological improvements. In terms of numbers, total manpower was greater
than the combined totals when both the PD and The News were
published in that same composing room.
Ring, a tough, smart streetfighter who has done yeoman’s service for the Newhouses
over the years, began as a proofreader on an early Newhouse newspaper in New
Jersey. He is still a card-carrying printer or “typo”-an ITU member -and boasts
of that fact frequently. Before tackling the PD assignment for which he is said
to earn $80,000 annually, he was the Newhouse man at papers in St. Louis and
Birmingham, Alabama. And if he knew anything, he knew how to handle his fellow
typos and other craft unions.
One close observer of Ring’s early maneuverings at the PD says, “The first
thing Leo did was to precipitate a wildcat strike by the ITU.” As a result of
what management termed an unauthorized walkout-the union insisted it was only
holding meetings on company time — the typos were socked with a $250,000 lawsuit.
Came contract time, and Ring neatly traded off, dropping the lawsuit for automation
agreements and elimination of one particularly annoying featherbedding device
known as the bogus. Bogus was advertising that arrived at the PD needing no
printer work, ready for use; under the ancien regime, however, a printer was
permitted to reset the ad in type. The typos also gained a crucial management
guarantee-lifetime job security for all typos then employed.
One by one, Ring brought the craft unions under his thumb. At the bargaining
table wage and fringe benefits and job guarantees were swapped for automation
advances and manpower attrition agreements. “Pressure is my business,” Ring,
candid as usual, said recently. “Management now controls the composing room,”
was how a PD editor put it.
The Newhouse organization, it must be noted, has a union-hating reputation
perhaps bested only by the Hearst newspaper chain. “One Portland is enough,”
lamented a Guild local on the West Coast as it donated $100 to the PD strikers.
In Portland a strike by several craft unions began in 1959 against The
Journal and The Oregonian, now both Newhouse-owned. It collapsed after
five and a half years, during which both papers continued publishing with nonunion
labor. That strike was probably the most strife-torn in American newspaper history:
several injured in picket-line violence, a union negotiator jailed for dynamiting
10 newspaper trucks and a member of the Newhouse family who was production manager
at the struck Oregonian wounded by a shotgun blast.
The unions charged Newhouse with importing “professional strikebreakers.”
Portland, they said further, “marked the first time the publishers in a major
city had elected to take on all their organized workers in one massive unionbusting
drive.” A nation-wide drive for anti -strikebreaker legislation, sponsored by
the printing trade unions, followed.
The Plain Dealer, while Ring took on the composing room, the Newhouses
quickly began undercutting Vail’s control as publisher. Norman Newhouse — Sam’s
brother and S.I. Newhouse, Jr. — Sam’s son — began visiting the PD every Thursday.
According to Harry L. McCormick, then a labor relations man at the newspaper and
now an international representative of the Guild, “When the Newhouses first
made their weekly visits, they would meet with Vail.
“Before long, though, they also began visiting the various departments of
the newspaper, asking what the problems were, making little lists. I started
getting calls. ‘Who’s in charge of this paper? Vail or NewhouseT Soon it became
clear that if the Newhouses’ lists didn’t start getting shorter, there’d be
Yet very seldom did either the Newhouses or Leo Ring venture into the second-floor
editorial offices-and almost never into the nearby city room. The great majority
of reporters had no idea what these men even looked like. Day to day, the editorial
side of the newspaper was left to Vail and his top editors. “The Newhouse
people are extremely knowledgeable, especially in production areas,” an editor
who has observed them ‘closely remarked. “But they are used to having some equally
competent local people running the editorial end. Here, all the Newhouses got
were headaches caused by the inept way in which the editorial management handled
problems and dealt with their staff.”
Not long after the Newhouses began setting the PD’s production house in order,
Vail decided the city room needed similar housecleaning. “We are going to be
harder with these people,” Vail told an editor. “We’ve been nice and it hasn’t
There was truth to Vail’s complaint, but the root of growing city room unrest
was larger than The Plain Dealer itself. The social upheaval that shook
the nation in the late Sixties, the gap between generations that divided parent
and child over issues of racial justice, campus protest and war resistance,
found its way straight into newspaper city rooms around the country. The was no exception, it just had more difficulty coping.
Editors at the
PD had never had to face similar issues during their
reporting careers. They had never thought to challenge the credibility of “official”
sources. And so they were unwilling to go along with the kind of probing, in-depth
jobs -skeptical of police, national guard or city hall versions — that their
young reporters wanted to do on major stories like Glenville, Kent State or
the Perk Administration. Some reporters openly confronted editors whom they
viewed as inferior. Vail himself, never the extrovert, withdrew more as the
conflicts enveloped his newspaper. He tried several times to change editors,
but his moves never seemed to mesh. He grew out of touch with realities in the
city room, relying totally on the advice of a small group of editors who themselves
had risen to their positions through office politics.
Ironically, the first victim of the new get-tough policy proved to be the
staff’s fairest-haired boy, star reporter Joe Eszterhas. In 1971 he was fired
after writing an Evergreen Review article graphically detailing his
somewhat ill-fated efforts to sell photographs of the Mylai massacre, which
were first printed in the PD, to the heavies of the world press. More
damning, Eszterhas included some comments about the newspaper’s editors that
were less than ceruleanblue loyal. His firing upset some of the younger, more
militant reporters. But the vengeance with which management attempted to assassinate
Eszterhas’ character during a hearing before a labor arbitrator upset several
more. “There are a lot of overtones from the Eszterhas case still here,” observed
former PD executive editor Philip W. Porter at the beginning of this strike.
“He was fired for writing snotty and in some cases untrue things about The management, but problems between the reporters and management
have been bubbling ever since.”
If the Eszterhas case was the first big punji stake driven between editors
and the reporting staff, many more, large and small, would follow. In the summer
of 1972, for instance, a popular as” sistant city editor, James B. Flanagan,
was precipitously fired. He had been a PD employee since he was hired
from the folded News in 1960. Flanagan’s sin against the company was
to bring an unopened beer into the city room-a zone surfeited with whiskey bottles
in bottom drawers-as a peace offering to a reporter with whom he had argued.
Under intense Guild pressure, Flanagan was reinstated. His treatment, though,
had an unmistakable effect. After all, Flanagan was no Eszterhas, who has since
risen to senior editor at Rolling Stone. Flanagan was a loyal Plain man, one who would work the city desk until the day he retired-a
PD lifer. Suddenly many other lifers in the city room discovered labor
militancy. All at once they began to think, for possibly the first time, in
terms of “us” against “them.”
That sense of estrangement between labor and management burgeoned like a nuclear
mushroom cloud later that year, in October, when the Guild struck — and the
horses came. The decision to call for cops reportedly was made by executive
editor Thomas R. Guthrie while he lunched at the Cleveland Athletic Club. He
relayed the message to Wilson Hirschfeld, who had been named managing editor
the previous spring. Hirschfeld’s close ties to newly elected Mayor Ralph J.
Perk had already caused a major flap, which had ultimately led to standing orders
that Hirschfeld was not to have any contact with his friend in city hall. On
this occasion, though, Guthrie gave his managing editor a special dispensation.
Hirschfeld called Perk, who called in police. Hirschfeld, who died last March,
was himself fired in 1973, after serving the paper for more than 30 years, a
sacrifice to employe peace by Guthrie, who had used him to enforce law and order
in the city room.
Less publicized but no less disruptive occurrences literally abounded. For
one, the executive Fuhrerbunker, as the city room dubbed it. Vail’s
office and those of his chief editors share one hallway, which had always been
accessible from the city room. That hallway was sealed off. Thereafter an employe
had to be buzzed through locked doors equipped with peepholes. Management announced
the change was necessary as a security precaution. Reporters added, “. . . against
Another incident is illustrative of how the troops were managed. About a year
ago, TV-radio editor Bill Hickey, one of the newspaper’s better wordsmiths,
was called into a superior’s office. He had been warned before that his writing
was “biased” and “inflammatory.” On that editor’s desk were strewn several of
Hickey’s recent columns. “This type of writing, Billwe just can’t have it,”
Hickey was said to have been told. He was ordered to report to former assistant
managing editor Lewis B. Edwards for writing lessons, an affront intended to
force Hickey to resign. He did not. Hickey’s column did not appear in print
“A few months later,” said a PD reporter, “Hickey won a national award for
his column, a story we played on page one. Then they stopped bothering Bill
about his column.”
Needless to say, such happenings were spread among the staff like a social
disease, the familiar topic of barroom grumblings. The anger and disenchantment
spread in an ever widening wake, reaching deeper and deeper into the staff.
And much of it was directed at one editor in particular-Tom Guthrie, Scottish-born,
former RAF information officer, executive editor at The Plain Dealer since January
1972. In that post he is second only to Tom Vail on the editorial side. Guthrie
once told Time magazine that he surveyed two London papers a day “just so I
can read some decent English.”
A management enemies list was informally compiled when Guthrie rose from the
copy desk to his new-found prominence. It included several reporters considered
troublemakers, misfits and ne’er-do-wells, among them hardcore Guildsmen. Guthrie
decided to go after those on the list with vigor. Often, though, Guthrie’s hot-tempered,
headstrong reactions to problems that arose only provoked further unrest and
even added new names to those on the list considered “troublemakers.”
High on the list was an undistinguished reporter named J. Stephen Hatch. Hatch
was unquestionably an acquired taste. He hailed from Altoona, Pennsylvania,
not far from where the first Pennsylvania crude was drilled. What rankled many
at the PD about Hatch was that he was Pennsylvania crude. His appearance, for
instance, seemed calculated to give offense: a brawl-battered nose, straggly
page-boy hair and mustache, Uncle Bill’s mix-nmatch outfits. So did his demeanor.
Hatch’s lowlife fame stemmed from countless drunken exploits in the sleazy bars
along Payne Avenue. Since his dismissal from the PD, he had returned to meatcutting,
his trade prior to journalism. During the strike he continued at his job in
a Bi-Rite supermarket in Brook Park, offering the strikers discounts on dayold
Hatch’s personal habits aside, Guthrie wanted his head on the butcher block
for one reason: his Guild activity. Guthrie once suggested at an editors’ conference
that a tail be put on Hatch. an attempt to catch him working on company time
at a brother’s gas station. At other meetings ways to “set up” Hatch were discussed.
Always the hidebound unionist, Hatch is a vice president of Local One. It
was while, he was acting in that capacity in early December 1973, on a Friday
night that Hatch was off work, that the management cleaver fell. Hatch appeared
at the PD’s door, reportedly to urge fellow Guild members to attend a special
meeting called to discuss the Bob Dolgan case. Tom Guthrie, a few days later,
told Hatch he was fired. A few days before the strike U. S. District
Judge Ben Green ruled that Hatch’s dismissal could not be a basis for the Guild
strike-since, the judge argued, the case was before a labor arbitrator. Judge
Green added, however, that the matter could still be discussed at the bargaining
table, and it was.
The judge issued the same ruling about the Dolgan case. Dolgan, now 42, was
a pleasant young man who had grown up in an East Side ethnic neighborhood wanting
to become a sportswriter. A worthy, if modest, ambition. He joined The Plain
Dealer sports department in 1957 and four years later, he became a baseball
writer. Three years after that he was fired for reportedly taking liberties
with his expense account. But not before he had made his contribution to major
league lore by tagging a 17-year-old Indians fastballer named McDowell with
his nickname, Sudden Sam.’
Dolgan was rehired by the PD sports department in 1967. A pretty fair writer,
he did some noteworthy columns and Sunday magazine sports articles. Before the
1972 strike, though, he got his own tag: company man. He alone stood
up at a strike meeting and argued for accepting the management offer. Dolgah
has since admitted to friends he made a mistake.
Life would probably have been fine for Dolgan had not Tom Guthrie spotted
him. Guthrie had tried without success to woo Press columnist Dick Feagler to
the PD. Insisting th

No fatal errors
Chapter 7 of the Federal Law of 13.07.2015 N 218-FZ “On state registration of real estate” (hereinafter – Law No. 218-FZ) regulates the procedure for correcting errors contained in the Unified State Register of Real Estate (hereinafter – USRN).
First of all, an interested person who has discovered errors in the USRN information should determine what kind of error and due to whose erroneous actions was made.
In accordance with the provisions of Article 61 of Law No. 218-FZ, a technical error (a misprint, a typo, a grammatical or arithmetic error, or a similar error) is an error made by the registration authority in the implementation of state cadastral registration and (or) state registration of rights and leading to inconsistency information contained in the USRN, information contained in the documents on the basis of which information was entered into the USRN.
In view of the foregoing, a technical error is an error made by the state registrar of rights when entering information into the USRN, for example, a typo in the name of the copyright holder, the name of the property, and the like.
A technical error is corrected by the decision of the state registrar of rights within three working days from the date of detection of a technical error in the records or receipt of an application from any interested person to correct a technical error in the records or on the basis of a court decision that entered into legal force to correct a technical error in the records. Correction of a technical error in the records is carried out if such correction does not entail the termination, occurrence, transfer of the registered right to the real estate object.
Law No. 218-FZ also provides for the concept of a register error.
So, a register error is an error reproduced in the USRN, contained in a landline plan, a technical plan, a map-plan of the territory or an inspection report, which arose as a result of an error made by the person who performed the cadastral work, or an error contained in documents sent or submitted to the authority registration of rights by other persons and (or) bodies in the order of information interaction, as well as in a different order, by Law No. 218-FZ.
As an example of a registry error, one can cite an error made by a cadastral engineer in the preparation of a land plot plan of a land plot, which resulted in the incorrect determination of the coordinates of the characteristic points of the boundaries of the land plot, and therefore the location of the plot boundaries was set incorrectly, and subsequently erroneous information was reflected in the USRN …
The register error is subject to correction by the decision of the state registrar of rights within five working days from the date of receipt of documents, including through information interaction, indicating the presence of register errors and containing the information necessary for their correction, or on the basis of a court decision that has entered into legal force to fix a registry error.Correction of the register error is carried out if such correction does not entail the termination, occurrence, transfer of the registered right to the real estate object.
In this case, the rightholder of the land plot should submit a land plot plan, in which the coordinates of the characteristic points of the boundaries of the land plot will be correctly determined.
It should be borne in mind that in accordance with part 4 of Article 61 of Law No. 218-FZ, in cases where there are grounds to believe that the correction of a technical error in the records and a registry error may cause harm or violate the legitimate interests of copyright holders or third parties who relied on the relevant records contained in the USRN, such a correction is made only by a court decision.
In addition, it is possible to note that if mistakes were made when establishing the boundaries of a significant part of land plots located in one gardening partnership based on the provisions of Chapter 4.1 of the Federal Law of 24.07.2007 No. 221-FZ “On cadastral activities” (hereinafter – Law on Cadastral Activities), such errors can be corrected by carrying out complex cadastral works, that is, works performed simultaneously with respect to all real estate objects located on the territory of one or more adjacent cadastral quarters.
In accordance with the provisions of chapter 4.1 of the Law on Cadastral Activities, complex cadastral works are performed by a cadastral engineer on the basis of a municipal or state contract. The contract is concluded with a cadastral engineer (individual entrepreneur) or with a legal entity in which the cadastral engineer works.
At the same time, the authorized bodies of local self-government of municipal districts or urban districts are the customers of complex cadastral works.
Financing of such work can be carried out at the expense of the budgets of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation and (or) the budgets of municipal districts, urban districts, including at the expense of funds allocated to the budgets of the constituent entities in the form of subsidies from the federal budget.
The result of complex cadastral works is a map-plan of the territory containing the information necessary for cadastral registration on land plots, buildings, structures, construction in progress located within the territory of complex cadastral works.
Currently, complex cadastral works are carried out only if there is and on the basis of an approved land survey project for an element of the planning structure, a land survey project for agricultural land and other project documentation provided for by the Law on Cadastral Activities.
It should be noted that the law “On Amendments to Federal Laws” On Cadastral Activities “and” On State Registration of Real Estate “, which comes into force 16.09.2019, it is envisaged to make changes aimed at establishing the possibility of carrying out complex cadastral works in the absence of an approved land-surveying project.
To facilitate and speed up the procedure for complex cadastral works, it is also proposed to establish the possibility of using technical passports, appraisal and other documentation previously prepared by bodies and organizations of technical accounting and technical inventory by cadastral engineers. And the state authorities and local authorities, who are the customers of complex cadastral works, will be given the right to receive copies of these documents free of charge.
Complex cadastral works will provide clarification of the location of the boundaries of land plots, establishment or clarification of the location on land plots of buildings, structures, construction in progress and correction of registry errors in information about the location of the boundaries of real estate objects.

90,000 USE in Russian: whose mistake?
Author: Natalia Nepomnyashchikh
Published: 18 March 2019
The Ministry of Education often makes statements about the need to avoid coaching for the Unified State Exam, to change its procedure, there are loud exclamations in society about the need to cancel the Unified State Exam … to school, where study becomes almost constant preparation for the next control.
And the Federal Institute of Pedagogical Measurements and Rosobrnadzor, which hold in their hands everything related to these control procedures, are not ready to hear feedback on the content of the exams. What is wrong with the USE assignments in the Russian language?
Recently, language teachers have been increasingly complaining about the USE assignments in the Russian language, or rather, about the official training manuals available to teachers and students: those that are issued every year by the same author in the amount of 36 or 10 options for preparation for the exam.Note that the same author, I.P. Tsybulko, is the main compiler of the USE tasks themselves. Before us is a situation of monopolization: everything related to the Unified State Exam is in the same hands – and, as always with monopolization, it is combined with closeness, unwillingness to hear feedback, to improve on its basis. However, the Russian language here cannot compete with literature: there are compilers of the Unified State Exam, training manuals for it, the OGE, manuals for it, the CDF, one of the textbooks from the federal list, as well as a new draft standard that matches the program to the rigidity of the USE requirements and that the same textbook – it’s all the same team with the participation of S.A. Zinina (who is also a member of the textbook council, which approves the list of textbooks recommended by the ministry) and E.A. Zinina.
First, a small educational program about how those USE tests are arranged, they are also in the language of officials from education – KIM (control and measuring materials). The first thing that most of all outrages both teachers and students, but remains in the shadows and is not always clear to society, is the lack of access to real examination options in the public field. After the USE itself, the “combat” exam options of the USE have never been uploaded to the network and are still not being shared in the public domain.Never. As if we are dealing with a state secret, which is not subject not only to disclosure, but even to be shown to specialized subject teachers. Think about it: for many years of passing the exam, real options have never been presented either to school teachers of Russian, or to philologists who study Russian, or to university teachers who train teachers, not to graduates, not to their parents, or to the general public. What is so secret about them? We can only speculate and build hypotheses.
The bad thing about this situation is that the test part, which totals 58 points out of 100, is checked by the machine and is not appealed.In this situation, the cost of a compiler error is very high. Nobody can check how correct the answers to the original exam options are, because they are not in the public domain after the exam. Yes, after a few months FIPI writes a general overview of the most frequent, typical, repetitive mistakes of graduates. From the teachers’ statements: “Unfortunately, we can only hope that the materials on the exam will be correct, and the answers put into the computer are correct.” Why should the teaching community just take their word for it?
Doubts about the imperfection of the USE options do not arise out of nowhere.This year, the collection of FIPI demos is full of flaws like never before: from banal typos (option 2, tasks 11-12) to incorrect answers in tasks around which controversy arises in the professional environment. For example, in the 34th variant, the word “material” got into the root of the number of words with the checked unstressed vowel, although the vowel A is not included in the root, which is confirmed by many dictionaries.
There are several discussion examples that have caused lively online discussions in specialized groups of language teachers, for example, in one of the most numerous (about 6000 participants) and authoritative professional groups – the “Methodological piggy bank of language literature” on Facebook.There, teachers regularly share “blunders” and flaws from the options. In the profile group on Vkontakte “I can write. Russian language “a survey was posted in which teachers were asked to choose the reason for setting the colon in task 21 (option 30):” “Even the eye cannot rest among this dull vegetation: dead wood, dead wood, ferns.” Is there a colon for a non-union connection or after a generalizing word? ” – The statistics of the survey are clearly not in favor of the answer proposed by FIPI. Teachers choose BSP, and the reference answer assumes that the inconsistent case “among vegetation”, which plays the role of a circumstance in the first part of the complex sentence, is a generalizing word for the words “dead wood, dead wood, ferns”, while we have a nominative case that orientates the student to the nominative type of one-part sentences with a grammatical base – a noun in the nominative case of the type “Night.Street. Flashlight. Pharmacy”.
From the teachers’ remarks: “I always say that controversial, non-obvious examples should not end up in CMMs. And the appeal is not possible in the test part, the assignment is not published even after the fact! ” And there is also option 7, the same task 21, where a sentence that differs in the setting of a dash is included in the number of correct answers: two cases on a dash between the subject and the predicate, the third is an intonation dash. In the teacher’s specialized group, a discussion arose with the involvement of various reference books and textbooks on how to understand such a dash.However, discussion examples should not be offered to a graduate at the exam, since any controversial case can be interpreted in two ways, and the key by which the machine checks the work provides the only correct, unambiguous, exact answer that coincides with the answer entered in the key. There are comments on the same task in option 14 and option 20.
In addition, in this “problematic task” the compilers did not take into account the importance of a clear, unambiguous criterion by which it is necessary to choose an answer in the test. In the assignment, you need to find several sentences where punctuation marks are delivered in accordance with the same rule.However, there are no clear intelligible explanations of what should be considered the same rule, language specialists exchange information: they argue who and what they said at seminars and webinars, but it does not become clearer. The devil is in the details: for example, there are several conditions for setting a dash or colon in a non-union sentence. Should we consider each condition as a separate base and choose only those sentences where the colon is put in accordance with the meaning of the reason, or any colon in the BSP is already “the same condition / rule”? Sometimes situations may arise when two variants of correct answers are found at the same time, in each of which the punctuation mark is placed in accordance with its own rule.Commas are especially vulnerable in this respect: for example, in several sentences there are commas in adverbial expressions, and in several sentences – in a complex non-union. What to choose as a reference answer if you can answer in two ways: write down one answer option in the form, or name both correct options? The latter would be logical. But no! – the compilers provide only one standard version of the correct answer, and the student who sees both will lose, because the machine will not count such an answer. From the teachers’ remarks about this assignment: “The problem is with this assignment.Training work: two non-union with commas, two with participial turns. Answer: 2659. Can this be? Yesterday I resolved this issue empirically: I put different options in their table and looked at what points were given. 2659 – zero points. 26 – 1 point. 59 – 1 point, that is, you can choose any set. But this is a disgrace! This is not a question about the Russian language, here you need to understand which version of the entry they consider correct. ” Another teacher exclaims in response: “This is a disgrace, because, as they say (FIPI), the exam does not require special preparation.Ok, I am not preparing and I know all the rules, WHERE am I supposed to know that I need to write out only one group of answers in task 21, if this is NOT indicated in ANYTHING in the instructions for it? ” We are promised that this will be corrected, but we will not see the real exam options, it remains only to “believe and trust”?
There were also the most common errors in demo versions. So, the talk of the town was an example from the FIPI brochure “10 options 2019”, option 8: “In connection with the growth of violations on the roads, the traffic police spent a month of traffic safety.”In the response, this sentence was indicated as a sentence in which there is a violation of the connection between the subject and the predicate, but there is no mistake in it: the state inspection is feminine, singular, so the predicate “held” must also be singular, r. The site has been fixed, but what about the outdated paper versions sold to people for money? By no means indisputable task 7 in option 6: “the shortest path” is marked as a grammatical error, that is, it is assumed that this is the correct answer or the reference “erroneous option” chosen according to the assignment.However, in Rosenthal’s “Handbook of Spelling and Literary Editing” (Ch. 27, paragraph 161), it passes as an exception: along with the “shortest path”, it is mentioned “in the closest way”, etc. Thus, the “fallacy” of this particular expression questioned. (Thanks to Yulia Fishman, site “I can write” for pointing out this and other errors in KIM).
Separately, teachers say that the texts on which essays are written in the exam are not always good in style, language and problems, sometimes they cause understandable rejection among students.As a rule, the texts are offered moralizing in spirit and style, they often give straightforward assessments, which does not leave enough room for expressing one’s own opinion, but only presupposes agreement with the writer. Among the proposed texts for essays in task 27, you can often find the names of authors who have not proven themselves in any way, whose language is not always interesting, understandable, unclear and simply not good. There are also anecdotal situations, such as at the Unified State Exam of past years, when the text in this examination version turned out to be a column by Zakhar Prilepin from Forbes: a moralizing conclusion about the role of parents was attached to it and the mention of how the writer saved on buying a bottle of beer was removed to buy your son the coveted New Year’s gift.In this year’s demos we see L. Charskaya (option 2) – although a popular writer in her era, she is not the first or even the second row, her sentimental, “popular” and very corny story of Matryosha in the spirit of a Christmas-tide story causes bewilderment: why a modern child on the state exam to offer such a questionable text? Or now, even at the exam, it is important to show the younger generation that servile love can be quite sincere? Is it really impossible to talk about loyalty, turning to other authors, not at all second-rate, both in language and in content? There is, after all, Maksim Maksimych from The Hero of Our Time, Savelich from The Captain’s Daughter… When adapting texts to CMMs, sometimes annoying misunderstandings occur. So, from the text of Mamin-Sibiryak about the deer, an important piece for understanding was removed – as a result, it was reduced to the detriment of its meaningful integrity. The very problematic of the texts is almost always straightforward and does not imply interesting answers, but rather focuses on patterns in the spirit of “what is good and what is bad”. Questions to the text for understanding its content (search for false / true statements) are a tracing paper from the exam in a foreign language.The task, designed to test the skills of critical thinking, independent reasoning, in fact, provokes schoolchildren only to reproduce standard clichés, an absolutely unoriginal composition (which in all essays on the exam for all eleventh graders should be the same!). So the students learn formulas and arguments for the essay and the Unified State Exam, instead of learning to think and create. Teenagers are outraged, reading the texts prepared for them in the demo version and assignments to them: why do they give us this, what exactly, what skill do they want to test? Why are we considered more stupid than we are?
Opponents from FIPI say there are demos on the site: one option for each year for which answers are given.Plus, on the FIPI website there is an open bank of USE and OGE assignments, but without answers, which already raises some questions: are the answers to assignments also a secret? As a result, graduates prepare for the exam either on third-party resources and sites where there are answers, or they purchase commercial publications – collections of options with answers. Collections and manuals of different authors are presented on the market, however, both teachers and children understand which single author needs to be taken in order to be sure. Some graduates sometimes even recognize these tasks, which they solved during the preparation, from the demo versions of the exams in separate versions.
It is quite natural that the professional teaching community has accumulated many complaints about the demos: both to their correctness, and to the correctness of answers to some questions, and to the balance of different options in terms of complexity, and to the content of materials, and to the formulation of tasks, and to the nature the texts presented in the assignment. If there are errors in the demo versions, why should we be sure that they do not exist, were not and will not be in the exam tasks themselves? The last example from a recent version for an oral interview: in the card of the interlocutor at the final interview in grade 9: “As you understand the statement of the famous writer Konstantin Konstantinovich Paustovsky… “The patronymic of a famous writer is incorrect, and this is already a real exam version.
A few words about the final interview, another innovation of FIPI and Rosobrnadzor, which this year became a condition for admission to the OGE. The texts presented on it for reading and retelling by children are of monstrous quality. For example – in more detail about the texts about N.I. Novikova and L.V. Zverev from the February version. First, they are illogical, lacking links between sentences and paragraphs. We have witnessed how a 15-year-old girl, answering the exam, did what the methodologists who made the assignment could not do: she edited the text, made it much more coherent than it was in the exam version.Secondly, some of the proposals defy straightforward interpretation. For example, the meaning of the expression “textbooks available to the common people” from the text about N.I. When retelling Novikov, some children were referred to as “cheap”, and some as “simple in content.” What was meant by the text remains a mystery; hope this hasn’t been counted as a factual error by anyone. Third, the texts are meaningless. Half of the text about Novikov is Soviet rhetoric at its worst. Agree, today it is difficult to retell the fragment “All of Novikov’s educational activities were imbued with hatred of the autocracy, the serf regime and all its products, including the serf education system.He waged the struggle against slavery, despotism and arbitrariness from an educational position. In education, Novikov saw the main means of resolving social issues. ” Not only is the same thought repeated in three sentences, this thought itself is extremely abstract and is in the field of rhetoric 40 years ago. Thus, these tasks are not able to test anything, but either they teach schoolchildren to a bad language taste, or (once again!) They turn them away from learning their native language with interest and pleasure.
Let’s summarize. If FIPI has no doubts about the absolute correctness of all its own versions of the USE and OGE, their correctness, error-freeness, then it is high time to start publishing them on the official website immediately after the exams.
