No objections have been filed.
Based upon a careful review of the entire file and the recommendations of Magistrate Judge Bianchini, the Report-Recommendation is accepted and adopted in whole. See 28 U.S.C. 636(b)(1). Accordingly, it is
1. The defendant's motion for judgment on the pleadings is GRANTED;
2. The plaintiff's motion for judgment on the pleadings is DENIED
3. The decision of the Commissioner is AFFIRMED;
4. The Clerk is directed to serve the order on the parties and close the file.
