    Default Cadaver-Sniffing Device Could Find Hoffa

    Cadaver-Sniffing Device Could Find Jimmy Hoffa : Discovery News

    A new detector could finally answer the question of whether the body of former Teamster boss Jimmy Hoffa is buried under cement at the site of the former Giants Stadium.

    New cadaver sensing technology developed by scientists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) can detect not only dead bodies, but also trace amounts of the things that will kill you, including explosives, spoiled food, and carcinogens.

    How funny to find this link today! My husband and I just watched the movie "Hoffa" last night! Even though it is an older movie, we had never seen it before. Great movie! And many times today the thought of where he might be came in my head.

    Read 'I Heard You Paint Houses' and you will get a totally different idea as to where Jimmy is.

    Very interesting read.

    At this point it really doesn't matter where our leader is! What we need is more members to be more like him!

    With my husband working for a non-union right now, we are seeing first hand how bad things are with the non-union freight companies. It is shocking because he did not do freight after 1998 until he came to ABF in 2006. We can't believe how drivers are treated. It is sickening. The IBT has to know this and for almost two years I have sat here and tried to figure out why they aren't using this time to organize freight everywhere!!! Seems to me the timing could not be better. I know my husband is not the only extremely unhappy driver out there! All of our driver friends are going through the exact same mess as us. They have all gone through several jobs in the last two years, very low pay and lots of promises from their employers that never happen. What the heck is wrong with the union right now??? Seems all they are doing is organizing bus companies. I believe there is a heaven and I think Jimmy is probably up there, stunned as to what is happening to his freight teamsters! I agree, it does not matter where he is right now, just that things need to go back to the way they were when Jimmy was in charge!

    Was an awesome read. I couldn't put it down. The Irishman was a WW 2 vet and a real roughneck. A must read for every Teamster.

    Slavenomore, you are so right!!!!!!!! My husband got suspended by SWIFT for three days last month because he accidently wrote down NM time instead of TX time on his logs. Our paychecks are already so small and this was devistating financially. My husband was tired, had been up almost 24 hours, he was in major heat in TX with a broken air conditioner in his truck and felt awful and because of that made a mistake. Oh, they also sent him to school to learn to do his logs correctly!!! He has been driving since 1997 and no company had ever pulled this on him before. Leave it to SWIFT!
