Safe Cruise

Project Safe Cruise Press Release: See www.projectsafecruise.blogspot.com & details below. Leave a message if you have experienced incidents involving poor security & safety practices of cruise lines. Hearings are scheduled; we will provide them to Congress. We must act to insure passenger safety. The current lack of safety & security is not acceptable especially after 9/11. On 5/12/05, we were on the Carnival Destiny near Aruba when an elderly couple disappeared without a trace.

Government could save $50 billion per year by having two shifts of white collar employees work each day. Office space costs $50,000/year for each employee yet we only use space 30% of time. We can no longer afford to have banker's hours for all. With over 2 million federal employees this cost-free paradigm change could avoid lay offs/furloughs and reduce pollution.

100 People have gone Overboard since 2000: Cause of Death May Never be Solved Since Ships have no Independent Law Enforcement

Cruise Ship Drama Thickens With Boyfriend's Return
CrNEW YORK (CBS) ― The boyfriend of a local woman who fell off a cruise ship to her death is back home on Friday. There are plenty of unanswered questions, but he's not saying much. The Norwegian Dawn is set to depart from Bermuda today, and will return to New York City's ship terminal on Saturday. While Mindy Jordan's boyfriend has been cleared of any wrongdoing, there are still a lot of doubts in question to her disappearance. Jorge Caputo left New York City Sunday morning with his girlfriend as a cruise ship passenger headed to Bermuda. Thursday night he returned home early, on a plane, alone. His vacation cut short after Mindy Jordan mysteriously fell off the Norwegian Dawn off the waters near Atlantic City. The ship's surveillance video shows Jordan was by herself at the time of her fall, and Caputo was with friends in his room. Jordan's parents told CBS 2 earlier in the week they suspect foul play. "That would be totally out of character. She was 4 feet 10, weighs about 100 pounds. She would have never gone near a rail," said Andrew August, Jordan's father. FBI officials now say they do not suspect a crime was committed. CBS 2's Hazel Sanchez tracked Caputo's every move as he boarded a plane home to Newark Thursday night. During the flight, Caputo kept his face buried in a romance novel, entitled "Accidentally Yours," and offered a "no comment" when asked why his girlfriend would have been near a rail by herself that fatal night. At the airport, Port Authority police escorted Caputo away from news crews to an awaiting car. The FBI will continue to analyze the surveillance video for any further details and developments. uise Line Says Norwegian Dawn's Surveillance Camera Footage Appears To Rule Out Foul Play,
