Home Energy Attacks Continue on Obama RFS Policy Attacks Continue on Obama RFS Policy Facebook Twitter As President Obama prepares to travel to Paris for a global conference on climate change at the end of November, Americans for Energy Security and Innovation is releasing a new ad that highlights his hypocrisy on promoting clean energy. President Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency is gutting the successful Renewable Fuel Standard that has created jobs and cut our dependence on foreign oil.“Regardless of your position on climate change, it’s clear that President Obama is talking out of both sides of his mouth on renewable energy. Despite his environmental rhetoric, the Obama Administration has tried to gut the Renewable Fuel Standard – the only successful federal law that has effectively promoted clean fuels that reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The President’s stunning hypocrisy has undermined his credibility and proven that he cannot be trusted to keep his word and follow through on his promises,” said American for Energy Security and Innovation Chairman and former United States Senator Jim Talent.The ad will run in Washington, DC taxicabs.Click here to watch the video.

The present plea sought that the elections be conducted in accordance with the provisions of Section 151 A of the Representation of Peoples Act, 1951.The petitioner was represented by Senior Advocates Mukul Rohatgi and Vinay Navare and Advocates Anish R Shah and Abdulrahiman Tamboli before the top Court.During the hearing, the Bench inquired if the plea has become infructuous. Senior Advocate Mukul Rohatgi appearing on behalf of the petitioner responded by stating that, they have one prayer which survives. He added that the elections have to be held in 6 months, unless it is not physically possible to hold elections.”More than 6 months have lapsed, why isn’t the Election Commission not holding elections, so I can contest again” Rohatgi remarked. The Bench then asked the petitioner to approach the High Court instead.”We are not a one stop solution for every problem in the country.” CJI remarked. “One stop shop as we say” Rohatgi responded.Singh through the present plea, sought a relaxation of the 6 months conditions mentioned in Article 164 (4) from continuing as a Minister, in view of the situation arising out of the global Covid-19 pandemic.The plea stated that Singh was elected as a Member of Legislative assembly from the 15-Wangkhei Assembly Constituency, Manipur by a considerable margin of votes, and his term was originally from March, 2017 to March, 2022. At the time of getting elected, he belonged to the Indian National Congress Party (INC) but due to some ideological differences, the he resigned as MLA of Congress and joined another political party in August, 2020.The petitioner has argued that in the case of the said causal vacancy having arisen, the Election Commission is under an obligation to conduct bye-election within a period of 6 months.The petunia has further stated t that he was appointed as a Cabinet Minister in the State on 24th September 2020 , and therefore he cannot continue as a Minister beyond 6 months from the said date, since he is not a Member of the Legislature of the State. The situation has arisen due to Election Commission’s failure in fulfilling its obligation to conduct bye-elections within 6 months of 11.08.2020.According to the petitioner, the ElectionCommission of India is not conducting the bye-elections in view of the fact that the Election Petition challenging Petitioner’s election is pending before the Manipur High Court. However, the pleadings there are complete and despite a mandatory provision to complete trial of the election period within a period of 6 months, it’s been pending for the past 4 years. The Petitioner also submitted that Section 151 A is mandatory in character, which mandates the Election Commission of India to hold and conduct bye-elections within a period of 6 months from arising of causal vacancy. Since the Election Commission hasn’t conducted the election, the petitioner is likely to lose his membership.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

ABC News(PANAMA CITY, Fla.) — A little over a month after Hurricane Michael made landfall in the Florida Panhandle as one of the strongest storms in U.S. history, members of one of the hardest-hit communities are coming together to create a Thanksgiving feast for all.The storm virtually wiped out the coastal community of Panama City, leaving thousands homeless and nearly destroying local schools — many of which were only able to re-open last week, a full month after the storm.Do You Know Someone Who Deserves the ‘GMA’ Spotlight? Tell T.J.! Submit a photo or video telling us why your someone is so spectacular here.Jinks Middle School, once a community gathering place, was so badly damaged that one student said it looked like what you see in the movies.“I haven’t seen this much damage in my entire life,” middle schooler Ella Daube told “Good Morning America.” “You see it in movies. You see it in TV shows. But when it actually happens, it’s terrifying.”Jinks Middle School Principal Britt Smith told “GMA” that the school gym had been completely decimated in the storm.“It would be the type place where we would have 575, if not more, people that would come together to watch not only athletic events, but also graduations,” Smith said. “So a big part of our community has been taken away by the storm, that got the walls blown out as a result of Hurricane Michael.”Residents are slowly picking up the pieces, and as a way to show their community’s resiliency, the Bay School District hosted a Thanksgiving dinner event for members of the community.Greg Bailie, the Bay High School culinary director, told “GMA” he is leading the charge as a way to set an example for his students.“We lost everything,” he said. “As hard as it may have been — you still gotta roll your sleeves up. And you gotta fight every day.“No matter what you went through, somebody else is worse off,” he added. “And you got to help them.”The event, which was held Tuesday night, was attended by hundreds of members of the community, one of them saying many people in the community are still in “survival mode.”“You don’t even think about the fact that it’s a national holiday,” one person who attended the event told “GMA.” “We would normally be preparing to have dinner with our families; we’re still in survival mode.”Another attendee told “GMA” that her family has only been eating canned goods because they don’t have a way to cook in the motel room where they are staying.When the folks at Nestle heard about the plans for a massive community Thanksgiving meal, they rallied their teams into action, and sent truckloads of ingredients.Some of those ingredients were 1,300 pounds of canned pumpkins, 35,000 cups of coffee, enough gravy base to make 84 gallons of gravy and enough corn pudding and green bean casserole mix for 5,000 people, to name a few.Plus, Nestle surprised Smith and Bailie with even bigger news on “GMA” Wednesday: The company donated $20,000 to help rebuild the school in the aftermath of the hurricane.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Three megascopic and disseminated tephra layers (which we refer to as layers A, B, and C) occur in late Quaternary glaciomarine sediments deposited on the West Antarctic continental margin. The stratigraphical positions of the distal tephra layers in 28 of the 32 studied sediment cores suggest their deposition during latest Marine Isotopic Stage (MIS) 6 and MIS 5. One prominent tephra layer (layer B), which was deposited subsequent to the penultimate deglaciation (Termination II), is present in almost all of the cores. Geochemical analyses carried out on the glass shards of the layers reveal a uniform trachytic composition and indicate Marie Byrd Land (MBL), West Antarctica, as the common volcanic source. The geochemical composition of the marine tephra is compared to that of ash layers of similar age described from Mount Moulton and Mount Takahe in MBL and from ice cores drilled at Dome Fuji, Vostok and EPICA Dome C in East Antarctica. The three tephra layers in the marine sediments are chemically indistinguishable. Also five englacial ash layers from Mt. Moulton, which originated from highly explosive Plinian eruptions of the Mt. Berlin volcano in MBL between 142 and 92 ka ago, are chemically very similar, as are two tephra layers erupted from Mt. Takahe at ca 102 ka and ca 93 ka. Statistical analysis of the chemical composition of the glass shards indicates that the youngest tephra (layer A) in the marine cores matches the ash layer that erupted from Mt. Berlin at 92 ka, which was previously correlated with tephra layers in the EPICA Dome C and the Dome Fuji ice cores. A tephra erupted from Mt. Berlin at 136 ka seems to correspond to a tephra layer deposited at 1733 m in the EPICA Dome C ice core. Additionally, the oldest tephra (layer C) in the marine sediments resembles an ash layer deposited at Vostok around 142 ka, but statistical evidence for the validity of this correlation is inconclusive. Although our results underscore the potential of tephrostratigraphy for correlating terrestrial and marine palaeoclimate archives, our study also reveals limitations of this technique, which may result in the miscorrelation of tephra. Such pitfalls comprise failure to recognise the occurrence of various tephra layers in marine sediment cores, ‘swamping’ of records with chemically indistinguishable tephra from a single volcanic source, and exclusive use of ‘geochemical fingerprinting’ for correlating ash layers.

By Donald WittkowskiWas this a mass protest against Ocean City’s “No dogs on the Boardwalk” edict?Hundreds of basset hounds in all their squat-legged, droopy eyed glory took over the Boardwalk on Saturday afternoon much to the amusement of thousands of spectators.At the head of the basset hound brigade was the self-proclaimed “top dog,” none other than Erik Estrada, who gained fame in the 1970s and ’80s playing Frank “Ponch” Poncharello in the TV police drama “CHiPS.”Estrada and about 500 basset hounds were joined by a cast of colorful characters, marching bands and clownish miniature cars in Ocean City’s 33rd annual Doo Dah Parade, a wacky procession that celebrates the end of income tax time and the start of the beach resort’s tourism season.Kathy Frisch, of Lehighton, Pa., hugs her 12-year-old basset hound Miss Bella, who was resplendent in a purple bonnet for the parade.As grand marshal, Estrada led the parade as it unfolded along Asbury Avenue through the downtown shopping district before making its way up on the Boardwalk for its comical climax. The “Pie-asco,” which encourages parade-goers to smoosh a friend or family member in the face with a shaving-cream pie, served as the finale in front of the Music Pier.Flashing his gleaming, Hollywood smile, the 69-year-old Estrada was serenaded with shouts of “We love you” and “You look so handsome” from the adoring crowds while he rode down the Boardwalk in a classic Chevrolet Super Sport convertible.Spectators rushed up to him for hugs, handshakes and photos. Ocean City residents Jill Nuss and Donna Strandwitz, who are friends and neighbors, got Estrada to pose with them for a few pictures.“I felt like I was a teenager again,” Nuss gushed about meeting Estrada.Parade Grand Marshal Erik Estrada, of “CHiPs” TV fame, poses for pictures with Ocean City’s Donna Strandwitz and Jill Nuss.The TV star, a veteran of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade in New York and Hollywood Christmas Parade in Los Angeles, was soaking up his first Doo Dah Parade on a sun-splashed spring day.“I’ve done the Macy’s parade, I’ve hosted the Hollywood parade, but this is a major parade. It’s incredible,” Estrada said in an interview. “The people are so generous, kind, nice and even sweet.”When asked what it was like to share the spotlight with hundreds of basset hounds, he joked, “I like being top dog.”The Doo Dah Parade is the main fundraiser for the Tri-State Basset Hound Rescue group. Valerie Mazzei, the president of Tri-State Basset Hound Rescue, said the organization was able to save 254 homeless basset hounds throughout the country last year, although it primarily concentrates on New Jersey, Pennsylvania and eastern New York.The hilariously built, sad-eyed basset hounds have been in the parade for the past 20 years and have become its centerpiece attraction. They saunter in slow motion behind the Tri-State Basset Hound Rescue’s “BoardWaddle” banner.The Pitman Original Hobo Band serenades the parade crowds on the Boardwalk with a musical number.Jennifer Buynitsky made a six-hour drive Friday night from her native Boston to march in the parade along with her basset, Eugene. For Buynitsky, it was her third Doo Dah Parade, but 6-month-old Eugene was a newbie. Looking comically nerdish, they wore matching beanie caps with propellers on top.“It’s goofy, funny, lovable,” Buynitsky said of the parade. “With 500 basset hounds here, it’s impossible not to be happy. It’s a great day of fun.”Robin Peterson, of Franklinville, N.J., brought a wooden box to the parade containing the ashes of her basset hound, Blaze-Flash, who died Feb. 20. Peterson explained that her dog had two names because he was called Blaze by one family member and Flash by another.Blaze-Flash was part of the Doo Dah Parade for years, so Peterson decided to bring his ashes along on Saturday to continue the tradition. Her family created a “basset buggy” that had four stuffed animals wearing Blaze-Flash’s collar, harness and some of his clothing.“Just because he’s gone doesn’t mean he’s not going to participate,” Peterson said. “He’s participated for many years, so we’re helping him along this year.”Costumed creatures entertain the spectators as the parade unfolds along Asbury Avenue through the downtown shopping district. Basset hounds saunter down the Boardwalk during the 2018 Doo Dah Parade.
