Opinion: Questions to Baruch College about grades. May 26, 2022.

 50 total views,  16 views today

Greetings Baruch College,

Please let me know how to appeal grades or who to contact if possible.

I don’t feel comfortable directly asking my professors about grades after they decide on a grade. Once a grade is given to me by a professor, I’m not going to contact the professor about it under any circumstances besides to say thank you. I’d rather just keep the grade they give.

Is the only way to appeal a grade via direct contact with a professor? If I can appeal a grade with a department I might.

I mentioned to two of my professors my case for various grades before they gave the grades.

For example:

First class: During one exam a student got sick and was violently coughing and running in and out of the classroom for more than 30 minutes. I respectfully mentioned to my professor that if I receive As on the second and third exam and a B+ on the first one because of the distraction from the student could that please be taken into consideration. I never missed any classes except for maybe a doctor’s appointment. I participated in every class.

Next class: I believe my grade is between an A- and an A in this class. I respectfully asked the professor if he could consider leaning towards the A for the following reasons. I participated in class. All my assignments were turned in. I never missed a class, if I did it was for a doctor’s appointment. In my humble opinion, my essays and homework showed I spent a lot of time learning the material.

Beyond that, I don’t feel comfortable asking my professors about it again. I respect whatever decision they make.

In my other two classes, I believe I earned either an A or A-, maybe B+.

The only reason I even care about grades more than passing is that I found out that if I want to go to CUNY graduate school, I need at least a 3.0.

To be perfectly honest, I hope I start earning money so I can get back into an apartment. If I’m still a full-time student after I graduate Baruch College that means I’m still going to be living in the street homeless.

My number one goal is to start working after I graduate from Baruch College or before I graduate and get an apartment.

I just want to try and get a 3.0 if possible so I have the option to attend a CUNY graduate school. If I don’t earn a 3.0, it’s no big deal. It might be a blessing in disguise, and I will get back into an apartment.

The number one most important thing is treating everyone at Baruch College respectfully. Without respect at Barch College, we have nothing.

All the professors and staff at Baruch College have a lot of students to support. There is no excuse for any student to be disrespectful to the Baruch College professors or staff.

When I make videos for social media, I always advise people not to use things as excuses to treat people disrespectfully. For example, unsatisfactory products and services. I apply that theory to all aspects of my life.

No one at Baruch College has to treat me respectfully for me to treat them respectfully. I don’t care if someone pours a can of paint over my head. I will ignore the person and walk away.

I will always treat everyone at Baruch College respectfully under all circumstances, no matter what.

Please advise.

Thank you and have a great day.

Opinion: Email to the New York State Office of Higher Education about New York City law enforcement viciously harassing me inside Baruch College.

Greetings New York State Office of Higher Education,

New York City law enforcement had three women try to crash into me and harass me at Baruch College today May 7, 2022. 

I emailed you the exact locations inside Baruch College, times, and dates earlier. 

I left school and New York City law enforcement had their plain clothes team follow me right over to where I’m at without a care in the world about being caught. 

I have an open lawsuit against The City University of New York right now: Mark Pine Vs The City University of New York. New York City law enforcement can care less.

New York City law enforcement has zero oversight and when it comes to harassing me they don’t care what evidence they leave in their wake. 

For example, I just posted videos to social media showing that New York City law enforcement has blocked my phone from calling NYPD 911. 

The US Attorney Southern District blocked my phone number. 

The NYPD blocked my phone number from calling all the precincts and NYPD Headquarters. 

The New York FBI blocked my phone number. 

The Albany FBI blocked my phone number. 

Now NYPD 911 blocked my phone number. I’m not sure if the NYPD 911 is a permanent block or a temporary block while they are viciously harassing me in clear view of security cameras. Today isn’t the first time that New York City law enforcement has blocked me from calling NYPD 911. 

I posted a video on YouTube and Twitter showing that my phone can call any number right now except NYPD 911. 

When New York City law enforcement has their plain clothes team harass me like they are doing right this minute, I’ll call NYPD 911 so there is a record of the time, day, date, location, of where I’m being harassed. 

I usually call NYPD 911 anywhere from dozens to hundreds of times per day off Baruch College campus, never in Baruch College.

In total, I’ve called NYPD 911 more than 20,000 times easily if I had to guess because NYC law enforcement has been harassing me every day for years. The NYPD 911 operators tease me and harass me on the phone. 

In addition to NYPD 911 I call all 50 states FBI field offices and press the extension for a live bank robbery or kidnapping. 

I have reported New York City law enforcement to the FBI field offices thousands of times. Lately, I call the FBI field offices dozens to hundreds of times per day when I’m outside of school and New York City law enforcement has their plain clothes team harassing me for hours on end.  

So far the only FBI field offices to block my number are the New York City FBI and the Albany FBI. There might be a few others I’m not sure. The FBI hangs up on me a lot. 

Right now I’m minding my own business trying to study and New York City law enforcement has their plainclothes team viciously harassing me in clear view of public and private security cameras. New York City law enforcement can care less. 

New York City law enforcement just figures there is no way I’ll ever get the security video to prove that New York City law enforcement has people that work for them in plain clothes viciously harassing me every day. 

I’m not mentioning a word about this to anyone at Baruch College.

Every single day when New York City law enforcement has women and men, students and staff, harassing me at Baruch College, shoving their phones in my face, teasing me, blocking me from walking, and crashing into me I just ignore it and walk away. 

Please let me know if you have any advice for me. 

I don’t have a criminal record at all. I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I don’t party. 

New York City law enforcement ran me into the ground and now they tease, rob, and harass me all day every day because people I know pay them to do it. 

Thank you and have a great day.

Opinion: Today a Baruch College student was swinging his leg around to distract me during a speech I was giving in class.

 254 total views,  11 views today

Greetings Professor,

I always treat everyone at Baruch College with the utmost respect at all times. That includes staff, professors, security guards, and students. Treating people respectfully is more important than anything.

I never participate in controversial conversations at Baruch College out of respect for people’s feelings.

I love Baruch College, LaGuardia Community College, and The City University of New York. 

I would never say a word to a student in class if she/he literally poured a can of paint on my head. 

I would say thank you and walk away. Then I would report it. 

With that being said there was a student sitting directly across from me while I was giving the speech kicking his leg up and down for the majority of my speech and it was very distracting. 

I could have put my head down and just sat there and read the speech, but I believe that we are supposed to look at the crowd. 

I would never say a word to the student. 

If someone offered me a million dollars to identify the student right now, I would have no clue what the student looks like. I just saw the persons leg kicking nonstop throughout my speech. 

It caught me so off guard that it threw off my speech a little. 

I listened to the recording, and it was OK, but it would have been much better. 

I never had someone do that to me before when I was giving a speech. It was like the student was practicing to be a professional field goal kicker or soccer player. 

I started getting used to it by the end of the speech and going forward if it happens again, I’ll be more used to it. 

If I can go again, I would like to, if not it’s no big deal. I’m just asking. 

I 10000% respect your decision either way. 

Thank you and have a great day. 

Mark Pine 

Greetings,

I wanted to go on record with what happened today in class. Personally, I’m a little surprised that the student felt comfortable doing that in front of all the other students knowing how much we all worked on preparing our speeches. 

It was like he was waiving his hand in my face during the speech except he was using his leg instead of his hand. It was very distracting. 

If you have any advice for me, please let me know. If not it’s no big deal. 

Currently I have a GPA and I think I have about 291 points out of 300 in the class right now. 

I know my subject inside and out, it’s about being a New York State real estate broker and I’m a licensed broker. 

I’ve been studying every day through spring break, and I was a little tired. When the person started swinging his leg around for the majority of my speech it totally knocked me off my game. 

Now that I have experienced the student swinging his leg around like he was trying out for the NFL during 70% of my speech, I can be prepared for it next time and focus on something else. 

More importantly than any of this is I always treat all students and staff with the utmost respect at all times. If someone does something I don’t like, I ignore the person. 

Please advise with any feedback you deem appropriate. 

Thank you and have a great day. 

Mark Pine

This type of thing happens all the time to me at Baruch College. I don’t blame Baruch College. I blame New York City law enforcement.

Greetings Professor, 

Thank you very much for your consideration since the beginning of class. Now I know why you’re one of the most respected professors on the web. That’s why I signed up for the class in the first place. 

Now that I have taken exam one I have an excellent understanding on how to prepare for the second exam. 

I am going to study at least 1 to 3 hours per day every day starting tomorrow until the next exam. If necessary, I’m more than happy to study 3 to 5 hours per day if that’s what it takes. 

Spring break is perfect to study because I’m going to be doing schoolwork every day and I don’t have to take breaks for classes. 

If I’m correct tomorrow is the day you will assign exactly what poems and stories for the class to be ready to analyze for the exam. As it stands now I have the 2 stories and 3 poems we analyzed.

I have all the PDFs you posted printed out and I’m going to double check again tonight. I’m at school right now so I can print anything I might be missing. 

I’m going to read and hand write the material over and over until I know it inside and out.

Thank you and have a great day.

Opinion: The three main lies New York City law enforcement would like to use to try and get me kicked out of Baruch College.

 660 total views,  20 views today

  1. Mark Pine had an outburst at Baruch College. 
  2. Mark Pine is stalking female Baruch College students. 
  3. Plagiarism. 

I always treat everyone at Baruch College with the utmost respect at all times. That includes staff, professors, security guards, and students. 

Treating people respectfully is more important than anything. 

I never participate in controversial conversations at Baruch College out of respect for people’s feelings. 

I love Baruch College, LaGuardia Community College, and The City University of New York. 

My goal is to earn a C or D average. Grades are not my priority. I’m at CUNY to learn.

New York City law enforcement has audio of them and me arguing.

New York City law enforcement has audio of me reporting them. 

New York City law enforcement has top-quality audio and video editors that can edit the audio of me and turn it into a conversation between a Baruch College student or staff member and me.

New York City law enforcement has already done that to me once already during my Nassau County criminal trial that I won. Technically I got a misdemeanor lowered to a violation. 

Several Baruch College students have tried to pick fights with me.

Several Baruch College students have shoved their phones in my face and crashed into me.

Several Baruch College students have tried to start arguments with me during class. 

I ignore them all.

I can care less if a Baruch College student poured a can of paint over my head, I would not react. I would still ignore them.

I have put a million hours into Baruch College, I’m not throwing it away for anyone. Also, the police torture me way worse than anything a Baruch College student or staff member could. 

The best way to handle a hater is to ignore the person. The best form of revenge is success.

Revenge is not responding to someone that is clearly trying to get me kicked out of Baruch College. 

Next, Mark Pine is stalking all the women at Baruch College. 

I have called every FBI field office in America and reported that people I know pay New York City law enforcement to have women try to set me up as a stalker. 

I have called every US Attorney in America and told them New York City law enforcement is trying to set me up as a stalker. 

I have called the Manhattan District Attorney and told them New York City law enforcement is trying to set me up as a stalker. 

Has anyone in the history of the United States called hundreds of government and law enforcement offices and then turned around and stalked women? What would be the logic behind that? 

I’ve called the Secret Service in Brooklyn and told them people I know are paying New York City law enforcement to try and set me up as a stalker. 

I’m also in the process of suing the NYPD and The City University of New York.

If I walked around school wearing a clown costume I couldn’t bring any more attention to myself in regards to the people who run Baruch College.  

Finally, we have plagiarism.

I have turned in the majority of my homework days, weeks, and months in advance since I started Baruch College.

I always ask questions in class and via emails to my professors. If I legitimately plagiarized a student or an author, New York City law enforcement would find out about it and I’d be expelled from school in one second flat. 

New York City law enforcement can harass me and sabotage me 24 hours a day and there is nothing I can do to stop them. 

I’m making the best of it. I’m trying to get help outside of Baruch College and CUNY. For example, I make videos begging the public to help me. 

When I’m at school I act like I’m on a job interview for the New York Attorney General’s Office. 

I love Baruch College. The staff is amazing. I want to graduate. 

If that’s not enough, I’m about to get $900 in my bank account because I’m a student at Baruch College.

In August, I’m about to get about $5,000 in my bank account because I’m a student at Baruch College. 

That money is in addition to the welfare, public assistance, cash assistance, food stamps, SNAP, I receive. 

I also have a job at school with RF CUNY that is going to pay me about $75 per week.

How many street homeless people in America or anywhere are receiving that type of money? 

I might be dumb, but I’m not that dumb. Baruch College is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that has made my life 10X more comfortable even though I’m living in the street homeless. Contrary to popular belief, street homeless people have bills too. 

I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I don’t party. I don’t do anything illegal. I don’t have a criminal record. 

I have a storage room to keep my things and places to shower.

I’m street homeless because I have bad credit, no money, and evictions on my record. I don’t want to live in a homeless shelter.

I filed my 2021 taxes in January 2022.

I didn’t pay anything because I didn’t make anything. Nonetheless, it’s an example of how I live my life.

I wasn’t filing my taxes until the stellar staff at the LaGuardia Community College-CUNY financial aid office motivated me to get back on track with my taxes. I am forever grateful to them. The staff at CUNY is absolutely the best. 

YouTube short about New York City law enforcement harassing me.

This is a sample of a typical email I send to the Baruch College-CUNY staff: 

Thank you very much for the help the other day. 

Greetings, 

The support staff at CUNY is amazing. You and everyone else are as helpful as humanly possible and it’s appreciated. CUNY is the best college ever. 

Do I have to do anything else to become a journalism major? Am I now a journalism major or do I need COM 1010 and Spanish first? 

Please advise. 

Thank you again and have a great day.

Opinion: A few Baruch College security guards running scams on me. 4/1/2022.

 545 total views,  6 views today

Greetings Baruch College, 

First and foremost, I always treat everyone at Baruch College and CUNY with the utmost respect regardless of how they treat me and it’s not always nice. 

I just showed up at the library building a few minutes after 7 AM. The doors to the library were locked. 

I don’t usually visit this building, so I don’t know my way around it. 

I walked down the steps and towards to turnstiles to see if I could get to the library by the elevator. 

Two security guards purposely tried to bump into me right in front of the turnstiles. I didn’t say a word. 

Then another security guard tried to go through the turnstile at the same time as me, behind me, without respecting my space at all when the building is 99.9 percent empty. I’m not sure if there is a security camera there or not. 

I would not have even been in this building if the printer in the vertical building wasn’t broken for the past week. 

I did not say a word to any of the security guards about it. I can care less. 

I have a feeling I know what this is about but I’m not going to speculate in this email. 

I don’t know if there is a security video of what just happened or not.

I’m used to this kind of thing. People I know are still paying various law enforcement to harass me every day. 

I never mention a word about the NYPD to anyone at Baruch College or CUNY besides you. 

I don’t like complaining to you but I have to cover myself when there is probably security video with me surrounded by a bunch of security guards like I just robbed a bank. 

One more quick thing. 

Yesterday I was visiting some professors during office hours. Another coincidence. 

One of the professors who I used an email from the professor in my ongoing lawsuit against CUNY in the New York Court of Claims was standing between the exit and me. 

I politely said hi and that was it. 

I’m not sure if someone thinks I’m mad at the professor, I’m not. The professor did me a favor. In my humble opinion, the professor proved my case with the email. 

Even if I was unhappy with the professor, I wouldn’t say a word. I have worked a million hours to become a Journalsim Major at Baruch College.

Also, I believe the professor was told to send the email, I don’t believe it was the professors idea. I like the professor. The professor is a great teacher.

The same exact way I didn’t take it personally when I was put on probation from your office. I have no clue whose idea that was. Anything negative that happens to me I blame on law enforcement.

I respect and like you. Someone else might hold a grudge if they don’t understand the dynamic of how organizations and law enforcement work. 

I think you’re great and your whole office is doing a great job. I love this school. Nothing is perfect. 

I’ve been through hell and back in my life. I don’t have a criminal record. I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I don’t party. 

I don’t want to go to another college. I love CUNY. 

I just have reason to believe that NYC law enforcement is running their usual scams (just now with the security guards, professors asking me to go off campus with an 18 year old woman, take our masks off and take pictures of each other and share all our personal information, last names, phone, email, etc. what does that have to do with school?) and I want to try and get help from a judge because the only government employees I’ve ever seen put some type of restraints on law enforcement is a judge and the courts. 

If I’m correct a judge’s name and decisions are connected to public record and all judges value their reputation. 

That is the total opposite of other government employees that just ignore the people when it’s convenient for them and there is no public record. 

For example, the Manhattan Borough President’s Office, the Public Advocate’s Office, the New York City Council, NYPD Internal Affairs, Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, US Attorney Southern District’s Office, etc. 

I don’t have an issue with the security guards. New York City law enforcement runs around and tells people at the post office, HRA, etc. to pull the same thing on me everywhere I go. I treat everyone at the post office, HRA, and here respectfully regardless of what’s going on. 

I have the highest tolerance for scams and insults against me that exists on the planet. 

In my opinion, everyone has to do what law enforcement says regardless of if it’s right or wrong. 

I mad at the people I grew up with that pay New York City law enforcement to harass me. I’m not mad at the people they are paying or random people that get wrapped up in this. 

The only ones who have the power to help me are judges and a few other random individuals that are almost impossible to reach. 

I’m making the best of the situation like always. I will continue to treat all the staff, students, etc. at Baruch College with the utmost respect even if they purposely try to bump into me, crash into me, ask me to share all my personal information and go off-campus and take pictures of 18-year-old women from my classes, etc. 

The police can’t believe I’ve survived all their abuse (arrested in Nassau County, broken arm, made homeless, robbed dozens of times, etc.) 

Now I’m getting thousands of visits on social media and it’s only a matter of a little luck and someone is going to reach out and lend me a hand and I’m going to get my life back.

In the meantime, I’m going to continue to act like​ a perfect student at Baruch College because without Baruch College I would have been toasted by law enforcement by now. You and everyone else here made my life 100X more comfortable than HRA would have without CUNY. 

Thank you and have a great day.

Opinion: NYC law enforcement is running scams on me at the Baruch College library to sabotage me with RF CUNY.

 549 total views,  12 views today

I’m not saying a word about this to anyone at RF CUNY or Baruch College. I’m reporting this to agencies outside of RF CUNY and Baruch College.

I never mention anything about my issue with New York City law enforcement to anyone at RF CUNY or Baruch College. If they Google me and read about it, there is nothing I can do about that.

If anyone at RF CUNY or Baruch College asks me about the situation with NYC law enforcement and myself, I will say I don’t think it’s appropriate to discuss it at school. 

Greetings Higher Education – New York State Education Department,

I was going to email Baruch College about this and I still might but I decided to email you first instead.  

People I know pay New York City law enforcement and their plainclothes sabotage team to harass me every day. 

NYC law enforcement has Baruch College students that work for them harass me every day at Baruch College. For example, NYC law enforcement has students in my classes swing their legs around and bounce up and down in their chairs during classes to distract me. I ignore them. 

I was just going to print something at school on Sunday morning. The printer in the Baruch College vertical building was jammed. 

I immediately suspected that NYC law enforcement and their plainclothes team sabotaged the printer so they could get me over to the library building. 

The reason I suspect NYC law enforcement wanted to get me over to the library building was that they are trying to sabotage my upcoming job with RF CUNY. 

NYC law enforcement probably doesn’t want me working at the library. NYC law enforcement would probably prefer to get me in a room alone or with one or two people and then drug me for the whole time. 

NYC law enforcement has drugged me so many times I’ve been to New York City hospital emergency rooms and urgent care centers hundreds of times. I can’t believe that no one who works at the Medicare office asked what’s going on? Why has this person been to emergency rooms and urgent care centers hundreds of times? 

I appreciate that the taxpayers are paying for me to go to the hospital hundreds of times. Even if I wasn’t covered I would still go. 

I never mention a word about any of this to anyone at Baruch College. 

Every day when students at Baruch College harass me I just ignore them. 

This happened on March 27, 2022 at about 10 AM. 

The first printer I went to use in the Baruch College library was broken. 

There was a person using the other printer that I saw on the ground floor. 

When the person who was using the printer on the second floor moved to a nearby table, I walked to the printer and quickly printed a few pages. 

Immediately when I started printing, the person who was using the printer before me started pacing back and forth behind me. 

Then when I was going to walk out of the library, there were two Baruch College security guards blocking the door from the outside. 

They were standing there pointing at something and adjusting their hats. After a few minutes of waiting, they moved slightly out of the way, just enough so I could comfortably walk by. 

I didn’t say a word to them or anyone at the library. 

NYC law enforcement will probably contact RF CUNY and make up a bunch of lies. 

If you have any ideas for me please let me know.

Thank you and have a great day.

Opinion: Respectful request to a Baruch College professor for an extension (3/22/2022).

 333 total views,  4 views today

Greetings Professor, 

First and foremost I have the utmost respect for you and all my professors. I love this class and the material is fascinating. I will remember it forever. 

Treating people respectfully is more important than anything. That goes triple for you. I’m 45 years old and I can handle a no. 

I just like to mention that upfront because I’m CUNY for life. I’m going to graduate from Baruch College and then I’m off to a CUNY graduate school. 

I want to remain on the best of terms with the entire staff at CUNY and I don’t want anyone to think I’m complaining. I make the best of all situations. That’s how I landed at CUNY.

I am requesting to take Wednesday’s exam next week instead of this week.  

If the answer is no, I 100 percent respect your decision and I’ll make the best of the situation. Either way, I’m studying every waking hour minus work I have to do for other classes. 

I have a good handle on all the material.

I’m not looking to change the rules. I’m not looking for special treatment. I’m merely presenting my situation and asking what the policy is regarding a one-time extension for this one exam. 

I do not speak with any students in the class. I don’t speak with any students in the whole school. 

The reason being is that I’m 45 years old. Furthermore, I’ve been living in the street homeless for the past five years. 

I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I don’t have a criminal record. Just bad credit, no money, and evictions on my record. 

I mention that because usually when people mention homeless a number of individuals think trouble. Homeless people have a bad reputation. 

The reality of the situation is that there are a lot of homeless people like me. No one would know we are homeless unless we tell them. We are doing everything like everyone else, except at the end of the night, we sleep in cars and the train. 

I’ve been a full time student at CUNY for two years. Street homeless the whole time.

I don’t think the majority of student’s parents would want their children associating with homeless people so I keep to myself. 

I always treat the Baruch College staff with the utmost respect at all times with zero exceptions. The only time I interact with students is during mandatory in class student projects. 

If a comet hits the earth, I will not ask for another extension for any assignment or exam. 

Now that I understand how the class works, I will catch up and stay up with the material. 

I think I can do OK under the circumstances as it stands now.

What put it over the top and made me want to ask is that I’m at the Mount Sinai Hospital Emergency Room right now and I might have to come back here on Tuesday or Wednesday to another department where I’ve been before. 

Plus I’m not even sure if I have the right material for the exam. Meaning the two poems and two stories.

Please let me know if you require any additional information from me. I can provide all documentation to back up the information in this email. 

I don’t lie to anyone at CUNY or anywhere for that matter. There is no need to. When I’m out in the street the way I am, things happen and sometimes I end up in the hospital. This isn’t including urgent care visits.

I’m mostly healthy. I have all my shots, I’ve been tested for many things. I had a negative COVID test today at CityMD. I keep as clean as humanly possible for a homeless person. 

February and March 2022 Hospital Emergency Room Visits:

March 21, 2022 Mount Sinai Hospital Emergency Room (here now). 

March 14, 2022 Mount Sinai Hospital Emergency Room 

March 1, 2022 NYU Langone Hospital Emergency Room 

February 19, 2022 New York Presbyterian Hospital Emergency Room

February 18, 2022 New York Presbyterian Hospital Emergency Room

February 16, 2022 NYU Langone Hospital Emergency Room 

February 12, 2022 New York Presbyterian Hospital Emergency Room 

Please let me know if you require any additional information from me. I will gladly provide any and all information required.

In the meantime, I’m going to study non-stop and make the best of the situation. 

Thank you and have a great day. 

Mark Pine
