Republican presidential contender Donald Trump said on Tuesday he would renegotiate America’s role in the U.N. global climate accord, spelling potential doom for an agreement many view as a last chance to turn the tide on global warming.A pull-out by the world’s second biggest carbon-emitting country would hobble the deal reached in Paris last December by nearly 200 nations, who for the first time in more than two decades found a common vision for curbing greenhouse gas emissions.“I will be looking at that very, very seriously, and at a minimum I will be renegotiating those agreements, at a minimum. And at a maximum I may do something else,” the New York real estate mogul said in an interview with Reuters.“But those agreements are one-sided agreements and they are bad for the United States.”
There may be times where you put a great deal of effort into a person, place or thing. You seem to be doing everything ‘right’ but, somehow, things are not coming together. Do not lose heart! You may be so focused on one way of doing things that you failed to notice The Universe pointing you to a solution that will work. Today, you are invited to take a step back, look at the infinite picture! There are many ways of reaching the same goal, you just need to keep an open mind! ~ Creator
A comparison between Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and Nazi leader Adolf Hitler by director Jill Soloway injected a brutal sense of reality into Sunday’s otherwise-glittering Emmy Award ceremony in Los Angeles.Trump is “a complete dangerous monster,” said Soloway, the Jewish creator of Transparent, about a dysfunctional Jewish family based on the story of her own father who came out as transgender.“Any moment that I have to call Trump out for being an inheritor to Hitler, I will,” she told reporters backstage.Receiving an award for directing a comedy series, Soloway added that the Holocaust-related story line of the show’s second season was “incredibly timely” given the nature of the presidential campaign. She said Trump’s views on immigration and law enforcement echoed the dynamics that led to Hitler’s rise to power.
Oakland, California nonprofit Grid Alternatives, for example, is an organization that implements solar power and energy efficiency for low-income families.They currently have ten regional offices and affiliates serving all of California, Colorado, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Washington D.C., Virginia, Maryland, and Delaware. They also have staff on the ground in Nicaragua.One California resident, Kianté London, used the program to put panels on his three-bedroom home.“It helps me and my family a great deal to have low-cost energy, because these energy prices are really expensive,” explained London. “And I wanted to do my part. It’s clean, green energy.” He had wanted solar for years, but couldn’t afford it before. This new program paid the entire up-front cost of his array, however.
The standoff, involving 5,000 Native American protesters, including representatives of 200 tribes and environmental groups, has been largely reduced in news reports to a matter of technical detail — concerning issues of permits and legal proceedings.At best, both the tribes and the oil company are treated as if they are equal parties in a purportedly proportionate tussle.Source: Morning Star :: A spirited fight for justice | The Peoples DailyBack in the 60’s my grandfather when talking about the Israel-Arab conflict said…..”If the Palestinians were in this country they would be Apache” (he chose Apache because he was Jicarilla)…..even 50 years ago he saw where the two people had a shared experience…..
Interviewed by the “al-Mayadeen TV” on the sideline of the 17th Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) Summit in Margarita in Venezuela, al-Jaafari said “Israel hosts “Jabhat al-Nusra”, “Liwa Shuhada al-Yarmouk” and “Jund al-Aqsa” terrorist groups and all other terrorists who have been trained in Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Israel itself.” He clarified that Israel provides medical treatment to injured terrorists in its hospitals with the help of Qatari funding.The Syrian diplomat went to on to say that the Syrian state has sent the UN Chief and the Security Council president hundreds of complaints about the Israeli occupation’s practices in the occupied Syrian Golan and about its full involvement in the country’s southern front’s battles.He added documents were also sent daily to the peacekeeping operation command, but “what should we do if the peacekeeping operation command Chief is a French person called Hervi Ladso who is involved to the bone in anti-Syria campaigns?”
Miners are partially cushioned by fixed long-term contracts with many customers. Canadian miner Cameco reported a cash cost of mining of over $27 a pound in the first half of 2016 but expects to realize an average price above $40 this year. Its capacity isn’t all needed, but shutting down uranium mines is expensive and difficult to reverse…….Cameco, which has seen its share price drop by 84% since its 2007 peak, is one of the few pieces of the supply chain reacting to the dismal outlook. The miner shut down its Rabbit Lake mine, the longest-operating uranium mine in North America, this summer.But such painful cuts alone won’t bring the market into balance for what feels to investors like a lifetime—or at least a half-life.http://www.wsj.com/articles/why-uranium-investments-will-remain-radioactive-1474225882
Every adult is responsible for himself or herself. Someone who is addicted says that he can’t help it. Addiction is a great excuse for not taking responsibility. Don’t get addicted. If someone wants to fall into a quagmire, he will find a way. If someone wants to be excused from self-responsibility, he can excuse himself directly. There is also no one who is not capable of receiving help and leaving the practice of addiction behind. Everyone is capable of it. Don’t blame the addiction. Helplessness, as considered in this venue of addiction, is not true. It is a fall-back excusal from responsibility.

The trucks had left the Atomic Weapons Establishment Burghfield near Reading on Wednesday before slowly making their way up to Scotland…….
Several months ago it was reported that a number of cardiologists and related academics from some 17 different countries carefully examined 19 studies involving 68,000 people as subjects. After examining the studies and its subjects they came to one resounding conclusion: No link could be found between heart disease and cholesterol.As a result, the cardiologists want to see the guidelines for treating cardiovascular disease re-evaluated and redefined. They want to see stains re-evaluated as claims related to these drugs have been overestimated, they say. -With 7 million in the UK alone given statins, consider the profit margins at stake here for Big Pharma if this study and its revelations got out to the world at large and the reaction it would give. How many people are taking statins unnecessarily..?
