Contact Us,answer is that olive oil is not so good for you. At least according to Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn and Dr. Joel Fuhrman, two giants in the world of eating for wellness and longevity.

Esselstyn, who was featured alongside Dr. T. Colin Campbell in the acclaimed plant foods as medicine documentary, Forks Over Knives, made “no extracted oil of any kind” a key rule of the plant based diet he prescribed to a group of near dead patients with coronary disease. Twenty years later, those who complied are still alive and well.

Fuhrman and Esselstyn agree that all oils are nutrient poor and calorie dense. The combination of these two characteristics make oil even extra virgin olive oil an extremely low ranking food on Fuhrman’s Aggregate Nutrient Density Index.

The scale uses the simple equation of nutrients divided by calories to calculate the value of a food. Kale, which is extremely high in nutrients and very low in calories, is an example of one of the foods that tops the ANDI scale. So even though olive oil may provide vitamin E and omega 9 fatty acids, among other nutrients, its extremely high calorie and fat content gives it a score of just 9 on the ANDI scale, whereas kale, for example, scores 1,000.

Fuhrman’s scoring scale is largely based around the volume of your stomach. Four hundred calories of olive oil takes up less than four tablespoons of space inside your stomach and could be ingested in less than a minute, whereas four hundred calories of spinach. well, it would take you all day to chew, and it would stretch your stomach to capacity.

Fuhrman says it’s the stretch of your stomach walls that lets you know when you’re full, so people who eat lots of vegetables eat fewer calories, feel fuller, and are better nourished, whereas people who eat lots of oil rich foods eat many more calories, feel less full, and consume fewer essential micro and phyto nutrients.

It’s completely logical, and I was so convinced of the doctor’s science that I decided to step my vegan diet up to oil free in accordance with the plan Fuhrman outlines in Eat to Live. But I’ve got to admit, even for me, a vegetable lover, it was hard to keep up. The doctor recommends eating two pounds of fresh and steamed vegetables every day and consuming minimal fat, and then only from plant sources like raw nuts, seeds, and avocado. As a runner and a CrossFitter, I may have been too stingy with the plant sourced fats I consumed; the doctor recommends that the very active up their intake of these naturally fatty foods. In any case, feeling like a crazed and ravenous wild animal despite having consumed cup upon cup of mushrooms, tomatoes, spinach, and garbanzos, I caved after about a week of the oil free diet. I am so convinced by the science behind it, though, that I am going to reconfigure and give it another try.

She learned about the detriments of oil while doing Rip Essyltein’s 28 Day Engine 2 Challenge sponsored by Whole Foods. “Then one day, when I was cleaning the dishes, there was oil on them, and I was scrubbing and scrubbing and scrubbing on these dishes, and I realized, ‘Oh my gosh, if this is how it is on the plate, imagine how it must be inside of our bodies.'” She went oil free for a month and said she felt lighter and more energetic. “My skin got better and softer, and I wouldn’t feel as heavy when I would wake up in the morning.”

Jorgensen works up to seven days a week. She said convenience was a big factor in her slide from the oil free lifestyle, remarking that nearly every prepared product in the grocery store contains some sort of oil. Like me, though, she still believes in the oil free diet, and is eager to give it another shot.

First it was a $70,000 Mercedes Benz GL350. Then another one, followed by a BMW X6 and a Porsche Cayenne. All were paid for in cash.

“I knew that he didn’t have the means to pay for these cars fully,” said Goss, who also noticed that the man never drove any of the vehicles to her office. “I don’t know of anybody in Sanbornton who can do that. In what has become a burgeoning black market industry, exporters typically hire straw buyers in the United States and send vehicles overseas by claiming them as used on customs declarations. The buyers often never see the vehicles they claim to be purchasing for personal use.

High prices and heavy demand for luxury cars and SUVs in China, caused in part by 25 percent tariffs on imported new vehicles, mean scammers can often sell the vehicles for at least double what they would get in the United States. dealerships.

Even after factoring in considerable shipping costs and other expenses, the exporters can make a huge profit on each vehicle by undercutting legitimate dealerships in China. dealerships, which are contractually prohibited from selling new vehicles to anyone who intends to export them and can be penalized by the automakers for doing so even if they do so unwittingly.

Dealerships that sell to exporters may be forced to pay charge backs, have incentives revoked and receive fewer vehicles from the factory in the future. Widespread fraudulent registrations also hurt dealerships that do not sell to exporters because such registrations understate the dealerships’ actual market shares, making it appear they are falling short of sales targets. That can affect bonuses paid by automakers as well as future allocations.

New Hampshire has been at the center of several large export schemes because it is the only state with neither a sales tax nor a requirement that vehicle owners carry insurance. Exporters maximize their profits by having vehicles titled there, even though many of the vehicles are bought elsewhere and never enter the state. customs laws, in what officials say was the first successful prosecution of a major vehicle exporting operation. The defendants admitted to scheming to export 93 vehicles worth more than $5.5 million that they and others bought in 16 states. The men, Frank Ku, 31, and Danny Hsu, 33, were fined $5,000 and sentenced to three years probation in May.

“This is a first of its kind prosecution, and I hope it will not be the last,” Kacavas told Automotive News, while declining to discuss investigations into any other operations. “These rings are far reaching. Some are operating on a scale much grander than Ku and Hsu.”

In the case, Kacavas said his office was more focused on trying to recover as many vehicles as possible and deterring additional exporting than sending Ku and Hsu to prison.

Court documents say Ku and Hsu found straw buyers by looking on Craigslist for ads posted by people who appeared to need money. Those buyers, who received “a few hundred dollars” for each vehicle they purchased, were not charged.

“Some of them were sort of hapless victims as far as we were concerned and not worthy of federal prosecution,” Kacavas said. “They made very little money from doing this.”

But for the exporters, he said, “it’s very lucrative.”

Ku and Hsu, who ran a company called CFLA, paid New Hampshire residents to use their addresses so they and other employees could falsely obtain local driver’s licenses. Court documents show they made some of the purchases themselves, in addition to using straw buyers, and in some cases they had an employee fly from California to pose as a straw buyer’s fiancee and handle all of the payment and paperwork.

How the vehicle exporting scheme run by Frank Ku and Danny Hsu from October 2009 through March 2012 worked

Ku and Hsu used Craigslist to find straw buyers and people who would let them use local addresses to obtain fake driver’s licenses.

They or the straw buyers purchased high end vehicles with checks from a local bank account. Straw buyers would earn several hundred dollars for each transaction.

They applied for titles in New Hampshire, New Jersey and other states, claiming that each vehicle was for personal use and posing as the straw buyers when the Department of Motor Vehicles questioned the applications.

Vehicles were shipped to the Port of Long Beach in California.

After their titles were issued and forwarded to California, the vehicles were shipped overseas with export declarations that categorized them as used. price.

They successfully exported 79 vehicles, and 14 more were seized in Long Beach. The average value of each vehicle was about $53,000.

Goss, the clerk in Sanbornton, a town of about 3,000 people in the center of the state, said she had attended a class in which state troopers warned clerks to be on the lookout for suspicious registrations of high end vehicles. The man she confronted started showing up about a year later, in late 2010.

When questioned by the town’s police chief, Stephen Hankard, the buyer readily acknowledged buying the SUVs for someone else and seemed unaware that he might be part of an illegitimate operation.

“He answered a Craigslist ad, and I think he honestly believed that what he was doing was legal,” Hankard said. “He seemed pretty confident in what he was saying.”

timberlands uk Exploring the culture of bro country

timberland outlet stores Exploring the culture of bro country

I have a confession to make. It’s been weighing heavily on my conscience, especially as someone who prostrates herself at the altar of Georges Jones and Strait. Someone who asks herself, “What would Tammy Wynette do?” Someone who, in times of trouble, prays to Patsy and cut her teeth on John Prine.I really like five bro country songs.

Whew, OK. You’re probably wondering what the big deal is. But for a classic country devotee, admitting this is a big step. “Bro country is ruining our beloved genre!,” critics cry. And it totally is. Bro country that dominant force in country music featuring songs about babes, beers, and trucks is terrible. At the same time,I grew up in the smallest of small towns, with a population of about 300, and I can’t help but feel nostalgic when I hear bro country songs. They sound like fooling around with my farmboy boyfriend in his F 150 pickup, or like hanging out at an abandoned farmhouse and drinking Smirnoff Ice as a teenager. Really, I was that girl in a country song.

It’s time to be that girl again. My friend Emily (also from Climax, Minnesota) and I shimmy into cutoffs and cowboy boots and slick on some lip gloss. We’re at TCF Bank Stadium last Saturday to explore bro country and the rabid culture surrounding it. Tonight’s headliner is Luke Bryan, the bro country god who began his career with legitimate country albums before Nashville capitalized on his good looks. Now college age women and their moms both get their jollies watching him shake his ass onstage as he sings about spring break, tank tops, and tanlines. Luke Bryan is almost 40. Joining Bryan at TCF are Randy Houser, Thomas Rhett, Dustin Lynch, and bro country heavyweights Florida Georgia Line. It’s like a mini WE Fest, and the streets of the University of Minnesota campus are crawling with country folk who are ready to party.

But first, what exactly is bro country? Well, it swept country radio like a monsoon with the advent of Florida Georgia Line’s “Cruise” in 2012, and it isn’t stopping anytime soon. The songs are perfect for frat parties, the kind of slick music you can enjoy without actually listening to. They sing about girls, mostly girls in short shorts, girls in bikinis, girls with sand on their skin, girls with sunburnt lips, girls sitting shotgun and shaking their sugar shakers on a tailgate. They sing about whiskey and beaches and havin’ a good time. Bro country is barely country at all, but rather twangy pop or rock with elements of hip hop thrown in. A new bro country artist is born every day, and the radio stations like K102 (102.1 FM) are drowning in them. Nashville is divided, with half its artists decryingthe genre and half cashing in.

Back outside of TCF on Saturday, there are sorority girls in white mini dresses and plastic cowboy boots. They’re joined by frat dudes in minty shorts and boat shoes. Cougars in tight, sparkly jeans and embroidered, sequined tank tops with teased up hair are on the prowl. They’re here for girls’ nights, leaving their kids at home. Everyone is here to get wasted, to smoke and drink outside with like minded people. It’s honestly surprising no one is playing Flip Cup.

“There are sooo many bitties here,” says my brother, and his eyes light up. It’s true: Pretty girls love bro country. For every pretty girl in the requisite ensemble, there’s an older man in cargo shorts or a bro with his shirtsleeves cut off. And upon first listen, the bro country emphasis on females can seem sort of sweet. All these guys wanna do is get you drunk and tell you you’re pretty. It seems romantic until you realize what you want is not a man with a brand new Chevy with a lift kit,
timberlands uk Exploring the culture of bro country
but a man with a Roth IRA and a plan for the future.

Everyone I meet at various tailgate parties is from the suburbs. Some have come as far as St. Cloud, like friends Brad Huyck and Troy Laurent, who are both wearing tight jeans and big white hats. They’re here to see Luke and Florida Georgia Line. “I think I would call it ‘pop country’ instead of bro country,” Huyck says.”It’s not true country like we were raised on, that’s for sure,” adds Laurent, who grew up listening to Alabama and Montgomery Gentry.

I meet Mike Keller of Shakopee, who won backstage passes to meet Luke Bryan at BUZN 102.9’s “Shake your DadBod” contest. He’s wearing a Bud Light cowboy hat and has “Not So Magic Mike” painted on his stomach, which he proudly displays to me in front of the stadium. He and his wife like country music in part because it’s “clean, and we’ve got kids.”

“I like country music because it tells stories it used to, anyway. Now it’s all about girls and trucks,” says Allison Shoaff of Apple Valley. She’s here to see Luke Bryan with her mother Susan.

I’m starting to sense a pattern here.

“We’re here to see Luke Bryan!” says every single female I approach, and there are many of them. When questioned as to why, they all reply with some variation of: “He’s so hot! And he shakes his ass!”

George Strait doesn’t shake his ass. George Strait would never.

Then again, George Strait wouldn’t change into a sliced up tank top and throw on a backwards baseball cap and sunglasses to rap onstage, either. But here we are at the end of Florida Georgia Line’s set. I swear I can hear George Jones doing laps in his grave right now.

“I would rather watch you lick that pretzel cheese for 45 minutes than watch these guys,” Emily says. With their tattoos, gelled hair, and piercings, Florida Georgia Line are reminiscent of the dads on Teen Mom. Their set is undeniably terrible. It sounds like Limp Bizkit. It becomes clear why they call this “hick hop.” Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley, the bros comprising Florida Georgia Line, occasionally strum a guitar half hardheartedly, but they mostly pose and posture down the runway . er, stage. When we spoke with Kelley ahead of the show, he predicted, “I bet there will be a lot of Minnesota country girls sitting on dudes’ shoulders having a good time. That’s my favorite thing to see.” A young guy wearing a frat classic Vineyard Vines T shirt sings every word; he’s having a great time.

Luke Bryan takes the stage as soon as the sun sets. He’s wearing a jacket, baseball cap, shiny black shoes (no cowboy boots?!), and tight ass jeans. He starts off his set with his new single “Kick the Dust Up,” which may actually be the worst song ever. He rhymes “up” with “up” through the entire thing. The crowd doesn’t care. They’re going nuts. They go even crazier when he rips off the jacket during 2007’s pre bro gem “All my Friends Say.” Luke Bryan is just not my type, I guess.

But it’s fun, I’ll admit it. Emily and I are eventually dancing along with the rest of the crowd. Revisiting the moment in my head, though, I can’t help but be disappointed. Does shaking your ass and looking hot onstage make you a country idol? I can’t abide by this. It feels so shallow, so sad. Luke Bryan doesn’t even pick up an instrument for the first half hour. The touring musicians do all the heavy lifting, he does all the strutting.

These bro country artists were clearly inspired by Garth Brooks’ incredible showmanship and spectacular stadium concerts. But they all lack true charisma and talent, the genuine care for music and fans that Garth has in spades. It’s not as though they’re untalented; Luke and his openers are super charming when they gather to cover Maroon 5’s “Sugar.” It just feels a little too slick, like you can hear the money already being stacked. Bro country is a never ending party, but eventually someone’s gonna call the cops and bust it up,

cheap timberland boots for women Experts stunned by ‘Premier League’ Roman find in Carlisle

timberland lexiss boot Experts stunned by ‘Premier League’ Roman find in Carlisle

A treasure trove of previously hidden Roman history unearthed in north Carlisle has been described as “Premier League” archaeology.

Working in secret, archaeologists have been excavating a site at Carlisle Cricket Club’s Edenside ground where they have discovered a superbly preserved Roman bath house and dozens of artefacts, including coins, arrow heads and pottery.

The quality of the find is such that one senior politican in the city has suggested that it could do for Carlisle what Viking archaeology did for York.

For decades, historians had puzzled over the likely location of the military bath house that would have been used by the Ala Petriana, the crack Roman cavalry regiment based at Stanwix. The elite 1,000 strong unit was the most feared fighting force on Hadrian’s Wall, the Roman Empire’s northern most frontier.

Over the last two weeks, the archaeology team has uncovered major sections of the unit’s bath house building, along with dozens of coins, an iron arrow head, pottery, bone hair pins and painted tiles. Many artefacts are in a remarkable state of preservation.

“The archaeology they’ve found here is absolutely stunning,” said Carlisle City Council leader Colin Glover. “It’s a fantastic site. It’s been a dream for a long time to find Roman archaeology in Carlisle that is good enough to show to the public.

“We’ve already found lots of good Roman artefacts elsewhere in Carlisle and much of it is at Tullie House Museum where it helps tell the story of Roman Carlisle.

“But what they’ve found at the cricket club site is really stunning: there are whole rooms, surviving Roman floors, parts of cooking pots, including one with a lion’s head through which sauces would be poured out.

“This is something we can do something with long term. We want to work closely with the cricket club to make the best of this exciting discovery. There are also discussions that we can have with the Heritage Lottery Fund.

“It’s really exciting to see a place and artefacts that Romans were using in this city almost 2,
cheap timberland boots for women Experts stunned by 'Premier League' Roman find in Carlisle
000 years ago.

“It would be wonderful if we could develop something long term just a 10 minute walk from the city centre.”

The site, below Eden Bridge, has been excavated by archaeology contractor Wardell Armstrong, whose technical director Frank Giecco could barely contain his excitement.

Among the beautifully preserved coins, hairpins and tiles is pipework associated with a hypocaust the Roman equivalent of underfloor heating.

The team have also discovered a tribute to Julia Domna, mother of the Roman Emperor Caracalla.

He was Emperor from AD 198 to 217 and an inscription carved into a sandstone block describes Domna as mother of the Most Holy Emperor, the Roman Army, and the Senate a key institution of the Roman state.

“This site is highly significant,” said Mr Giecco.

“We’re just beneath the site of the Roman fort at Stanwix and, until now, we never knew where the fort’s bath house was. The obvious place was near the river.

“There are blackened areas, probably where they had the furnaces for burning wood to heat the water.

“There were 1,000 men based here, members of the prestigious Ala Petriana and they were paid more than the other soldiers stationed here.

“The bath house was a very important part of life for these cavalrymen a meeting place and there would have been a lot of gambling and coins lost.”

In charge of the dig was Kevin Mounsey.

He said: “There was little expectation when we started.

“We’d been told that all the spoil from the excavation of Hardwicke Circus was dumped down this bank. But what we’ve now found shows this really is a very significant site.

“Finds like this are rare it’s Premier League archaeology.

“Nobody knew that there was anything like this down here. It really is exciting the kind of find you come into this job for.”

The dig has been been particularly exciting for the firm’s newest recruit, 21 year old Durham University archaeology graduate Rachel Frame. She found her first Roman coin a silver denarius.

“It’s like it was minted yesterday,” said Rachel. “You can read every bit of the writing on it because it’s such a good state of preservation. It’s really exciting.”

Carlisle Cricket Club chairman Mike Rayson said: “This is an amazing find and we’ll work closely with the city council to do the right thing. It could be a big thing for this city and we wouldn’t do anything to disturb it.”

He added that he was confident that the new pavilion, vital to Carlisle Cricket Club’s future,
cheap timberland boots for women Experts stunned by 'Premier League' Roman find in Carlisle
would be built but in a way that does not conflict with the exciting opportunities created by the bath house find.

timberland shearling jacket Experimental herpes vaccine upends traditional approach and shows promise

March 10, 2015 (BRONX, NY) Scientists at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University have designed a new type of vaccine that could be the first ever for preventing genital herpes one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases, affecting some 500 million people worldwide. By using a counterintuitive scientific approach, researchers were able to prevent both active and latent infections caused by herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV 2), the virus that causes genital herpes. Findings from the research, conducted in mice, were published today in the online journal eLife. “We decided to take an approach that runs counter to most of the tactics used by other scientists and we seem to have cracked the code.” Dr. Jacobs is also professor of microbiology immunology and of genetics at Einstein.

It was generally assumed that an effective HSV 2 vaccine must stimulate the body to produce neutralizing antibodies particularly against a viral surface protein called glycoprotein D (gD 2) that HSV 2 uses to enter human cells. A protein that triggers antibody production is called an antigen. For decades, researchers have focused on “subunit” herpes vaccines that rely primarily on gD 2 as the antigen to stimulate the body’s antibody response but none has prevented HSV 2 infection in humans. Dr. Herold is also professor of pediatrics, of microbiology immunology, and of obstetrics gynecology and women’s health at Einstein.

The Einstein team took a completely different approach in designing their “live” HSV 2 vaccine. Instead of using gD 2 to stimulate antibodies, they deleted the gene for gD 2 from the virus (and, consequently, the protein’s expression on the viral surface) a manipulation that weakens the virus, rendering it unable to infect cells or cause disease. They hypothesized that this altered virus would stimulate the body to produce different and more effective antibodies.

“We had a hunch that gD 2 might be masking other viral antigens, and that by removing this dominant protein we would expose those previously masked antigens to the immune system,” said Dr. Jacobs.

When the vaccine, dubbed “delta gD 2” (“delta” is shorthand for a gene deletion) was given to mice, it provided complete protection against subsequent infection with normal (wildtype) HSV 2, whether animals were challenged intravaginally or through the skin. No virus was detected in vaginal or skin tissue of vaccinated mice or in neural tissue, where HSV 2 often hides in a latent form only to emerge later to cause disease. When unvaccinated mice were challenged with wildtype HSV 2, all showed evidence of the virus in the three tissue sites, and all succumbed to the disease.

The vaccinated mice showed low levels of neutralizing antibodies but high levels of antibodies associated with a different immune response called antibody dependent cell mediated cytotoxicity (ADCC). This and other experiments described in the paper such as finding that blood serum from vaccinated mice was able to passively protect unvaccinated mice conclusively demonstrated that ADCC antibodies were responsible for protecting against HSV 2.

“Our findings challenge the existing dogma that says an effective herpes vaccine must stimulate neutralizing antibodies against gD 2,” said Dr. Jacobs. “It’s almost as if the virus evolved gD 2 specifically to hide the other antigens. gD 2 turns out to be a Trojan horse that misleads the immune system.”

The new vaccine also appears to be safe. The researchers calculated the number of wildtype viruses needed to kill mice and then administered 1,000 times that number of delta g D 2 viruses to mice that lacked immune systems and so couldn’t ward off infections. The result: The mice survived and didn’t develop herpes. The Einstein team hopes to begin clinical trials on humans within a few years.

Initial tests suggest that the vaccine is also effective against HSV 1, or oral herpes, although this needs to be further evaluated. In addition, the vaccine’s novel design may help in creating vaccines against other disease causing microbes that invade the body through mucosal tissues,
timberland girls sandals Experimental herpes vaccine upends traditional approach and shows promise
including HIV and the bacterium that causes tuberculosis.

“Genital herpes infections can not only be serious in and of themselves, but they also play a major role in fueling the HIV epidemic,” said Dr. Herold. “People infected with HSV 2 are more likely to acquire and to transmit HIV which further underscores the need to develop a safe and effective herpes vaccine.”

Albert Einstein College of Medicine has filed patent applications related to this research and is seeking licensing partners able to further develop and commercialize this technology.

The study was support by grants from the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases, part of the National Institutes of Health (AI065309, AI03461, AI084225 and AI063537) and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.

About Herpes

There are two types of herpes simplex virus: HSV 1 (more commonly associated with oral herpes) and HSV 2 (more commonly associated with genital herpes). Neither genital herpes nor oral herpes can be cured.

Oral herpes typically causes sores around the mouth and lips and is transmitted through oral secretions or skin sores. Oral herpes is a leading cause of corneal blindness worldwide.

Most people with genital herpes are symptom free but periodically shed the virus, which they may unknowingly transmit to their partner or newborn. Genital herpes sores typically appear as one or more blisters on or around the genitals, rectum, or mouth. The blisters break and leave painful sores that may take weeks to heal. The first of these “outbreaks” may be accompanied by flu like symptoms. Repeat outbreaks are common, especially the first year after infection. Although genital herpes infection can persist for life, the number of outbreaks tends to decrease over time. program, and 313 . The College of Medicine has more than 2,000 full time faculty members located on the main campus and at its clinical affiliates. In 2013, Einstein received more than $150 million in awards from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This includes the funding of major research centers at Einstein in aging, intellectual development disorders, diabetes, cancer, clinical and translational research, liver disease, and AIDS. Other areas where the College of Medicine is concentrating its efforts include developmental brain research, neuroscience, cardiac disease, and initiatives to reduce and eliminate ethnic and racial health disparities. Its partnership with Montefiore Medical Center, the University Hospital and academic medical center for Einstein, advances clinical and translational research to accelerate the pace at which new discoveries become the treatments and therapies that benefit patients. Through its extensive affiliation network involving Montefiore, Jacobi Medical Center Einstein’s founding hospital, and three other hospital systems in the Bronx, Brooklyn and on Long Island,

“We’re within the next several weeks going to be announcing hopefully a couple more projects,” Kevin Lampe, Executive Vice President of Sanford Sports, said.

Sanford is also collaborating with the City of Sioux Falls to build a rugby field. Work will start this spring, with players taking the field next year. Then there’s a little something that made big news a few weeks ago. Sanford plans to donate land on the property to the school district for a new school.

“Schools need green space too. They need outdoor activity areas. We have acres and acres and acres of that. I think that’s a really good marriage potentially,” Lampe said.

Lampe says he’s getting a lot of interest from other businesses. Because of that, Sanford has come up with a plan. It includes a mix of office, commercial and recreation space.

“If we can get them off the couch, get them active and keep them active through their young years and provide opportunities that interest them into adulthood, we all win out of that,” Lampe said.

timberland premium boots Expect EPA Chief Scott Pruitt’s Reckless Spending to Continue in 2018

O’Grady writes: “For the coming year, it’s become obvious what’s ‘in’ and what’s ‘out.’ Regarding EPA, and according to this White House, fossil fuel energy lobbyists are in, and federal scientists and engineers are out.”

n 2017, the Trump administration established dangerous new norms in environmental policy. For the coming year, it’s become obvious what’s “in” and what’s “out.”

Regarding EPA, and according to this White House, fossil fuel energy lobbyists are in, and federal scientists and engineers are out.

Permits for offshore oil and gas drilling and mineral extraction at our national monuments are in, and air pollution regulations and water contamination protocols are out. Scott Pruitt’s climate denial and his refusal to release documents supporting his claims are in, while the federal “endangerment finding” that enabled President Obama’s climate actions including the Paris Agreement is out.

In just 10 months, Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt has devastated EPA by dismantling its science directives to protect public health and the environment. What will result from backing industry interests over defending public health for 300 million Americans? Only time will tell. Here is an inventory of the major investigations of Donald Trump’s EPA expected to come to fruition in 2018.

Administrator Scott Pruitt is one of several Trump cabinet members (including Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, Energy Secretary Rick Perry and former Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price), who were caught taking expensive private planes for government business on the public’s dime.

EPA’s Inspector General Arthur Elkins, Jr. is now investigating Pruitt’s travel through Sept. 30, 2017, considering the “frequency, cost, and extent” and whether travel policies were followed to prevent waste, fraud and abuse. Pruitt used private and military jet travel instead of commercial airlines for EPA work on four occasions at a cost of nearly $60,000. He traveled 48 of his first 92 days as administrator 43 of those days included stops in his home state of Oklahoma.

The second investigation questions Pruitt advocating lobbying. At a meeting with the National Mining Association in April, he exhorted mining association members to tell Trump to withdraw from the Paris climate deal.

Pruitt’s staff also pressed lawmakers and conservative groups to publicly criticize the climate agreement, increasing public pressure on the resident. withdrawal.

These actions exemplify a potentially larger pattern of illegal activities by Pruitt and EPA staff as these directives from a cabinet member may violate anti lobbying laws for government officials.

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) provides legal opinions on anti lobbying questions. But first, the EPA’s inspector general must “develop a comprehensive factual record” for conducting the analysis. He has not forwarded its investigation’s findings to the GAO. Once it does, the GAO will complete its inquiry. (WOTUS) rule.

In this review to rescind or revise the Clean Water Rule, Pruitt essentially urged the public to comment in favor of repealing the rule. The video advises viewers “tell EPA to kill WOTUS.”

The GAO investigation will examine if Pruitt violated laws on the use of appropriated funds for lobbying, publicity and propaganda purposes and for violations of the Anti Deficiency Act. Obviously, calling on the public to support a rule’s withdrawal does not appear fair, impartial or open minded, and undermines the idea that public participation matters.

Yet another investigation will consider possible ethical violations from Pruitt’s insistence that he did not use a personal email address for official EPA business and for speeches he gave to conservative organizations about environmental policy while he was Oklahoma attorney general.

He also ran afoul of professional responsibility in rules for Oklahoma Bar Association lawyers for possibly lying under oath and violation of ethical rules associated with the practice of law. Once the investigation is complete, the bar association’s Professional Responsibility Commission may take disciplinary action against him.

The GAO opened one more inquiry into whether EPA circumvented the Trump administration’s own ethics rules when hiring certain agency employees.

To fulfill his promise to “drain the swamp” in Washington, Trump issued an executive order last January prohibiting executive branch employees from participating “in any particular matter” on which they had lobbied in the two years before their appointment. But when an agency can just ignore those rules and congressional oversight the result often leads to corruption and scandal.”

EPA’s inspector general has agreed to review whether Pruitt misused appropriated funds when he spent $25,000 installing a secure, soundproof communications booth in his office. According to a government contracting database, Pruitt also paid $7,978 more to remove closed circuit television equipment to accommodate the booth in an area off his third floor office. Pruitt has come under fire for building the booth when a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility that guards against electronic surveillance and suppresses data leakage of sensitive information is already available to him at EPA headquarters.

Given the scope and seriousness of the allegations, we think the inspector general will likely grant this request. Carper added, “I presume Mr. Pruitt is aware his agency’s inspector general is conducting an investigation into his questionable travel, which makes his decision to take this trip an odd choice at best.”

So, inspector general investigations are in, while Pruitt has been at EPA’s helm for only 10 months. And, they are expected to provide lots of drama in 2018.

Expanding Successes Regional Products Such As Cape Cod Potato Chips And Soho Natural Soda Are Beginning To Find Fans Across The Nation.

August 5, 1987By DONNA FENN, New York Times Syndicate

Not long ago there was McDonalds, Budweiser, Coca Cola, Howard Johnson and Sears, Roebuck names that most Americans recognized and trusted. They still do, but in the past 10 years Americans have discovered something about this country that foreign visitors have always known: The United States is a nation of culturally diverse regions. It may be that brand loyalty, like patriotism, begins at home or pretty close to home.

Families in New Mexico gather around tables crafted of native ponderosa pine; New Yorkers stock their refrigerators with hometown brews. But local is not necessarily forever: Products such as Cape Cod Potato Chips and Soho Natural Soda have used the regional cachet to go national, making headlines and profits and whetting appetites for more regional products, including borrowed ones. Baltimoreans began wearing Timberland boots, Western wear showed up in the South, and New Englanders went for Cajun cooking, blackening everything that had fins.

Where did this rediscovery of local color begin? As we travel more and jobs take us to different locations, were looking to adapt and adopt, observes Tony Adams, director of marketing, research and planning at Campbell Soup Co. I see much more shared interest in regional products. Philadelphians want to try Tex Mex and Oregonians are eating New England clam chowder.

For the past four years the Vermont Department of Agriculture has been helping specialty food producers to market their goods in and out of state by underwriting and organizing their participation in trade shows. The word Vermont has tremendous marketing power, says Steve Wallach, the departments chief of information. We prize the environment here. Vermont conjures up an image of clean, pure air and high quality.

At least 50 Vermont producers use the state name on their labels, and many gather under their state banner at national food shows. The word Vermont makes the product move,

Wallach says.

While New Englands aura certainly contributes to the marketability of its native products, the regions economic boom is giving local businesses a boost, too. That may help to explain the success of a company whose sole product sells for about $350 (plus a $20 delivery charge). For three years Boston based Geoffrey Kerr has been manufacturing the Original Gloucester Rocker, a miniature rocking boat for children, originally designed by Buckley Smith, a boat builder and sailor who made it for his son.

The toy boat is modeled after a classic Gloucester fishing dory, and while its price is hefty, Kerr says it is intended to be handed down as an heirloom. Being situated in a region often referred to as the land of enchantment does not hurt, though, as Bob Powell, owner of Taos Furniture, discovered.

Powell, a 50 year old former stockbroker who left Los Angeles for a simpler life in New Mexico, bought a failing Santa Fe company called Hills Furniture in 1977. The company had been manufacturing Southwestern style, made to order furniture for a largely local market. There wasnt much left except some tools, a shop and some ideas, Powell remembers. But I thought that if I were really good I could sell the furniture in other areas.

That turned out to be an understatement. Powell changed the companys name to reflect the product more accurately. Taos has a rich cultural and artistic heritage, he says. The Spanish immigrants who settled the place several hundred years ago built their own furnishings a primitive look, but darn good designs.

Each piece of custom furniture, made of native ponderosa pine, is crafted by one person who signs and numbers the work. Now a lot of the larger national furniture companies are knocking off what weve been doing here for years, developing what they call their Santa Fe look, says Powell, who attributes this partly to the growth of Arizona cities.

The trend has given Powells business an enormous boost. Revenues are between $1 million and $2 million,

and the company is growing at a 25 percent a year compounded rate.

A preeminent 20th century designer, Wright pioneered the Prairie School style of architecture and built such iconic structures as Fallingwater in Mill Run, Pennsylvania, and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City. To mark the 150th anniversary of his birth this month, Columbia’s Avery Architectural and Fine Arts Library and the Museum of Modern Art, the joint stewards of Wright’s archives, are presenting Frank Lloyd Wright at 150: Unpacking the Archive.

“What more is there to say about Wright, this protean figure who had a 70 year career and designed more than 1,000 buildings, about half of which were built?” said Barry Bergdoll, the Meyer Schapiro Professor of Art History and Archaeology at Columbia and a curator in the Museum of Modern Art’s Department of Architecture and Design, who organized the exhibition with Jennifer Gray, a 2011 alumna of Columbia’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation who now works at MoMA.

Bergdoll realized that the best way to showcase the monumental scale of the archive 55,000 drawings, 300,000 sheets of correspondence, 125,000 photographs, 2,700 manuscripts and other materials was not through a retrospective of Wright’s masterpieces, but an exhibition that was designed as more of an anthology. He invited a group of scholars to explore the collection, asking each to select and study an object or cluster of objects. The resulting exhibition consists of 12 sections, each curated by one or more of the scholars.

“We arrived at the concept or trope of unpacking the archive, which represents both the literal unpacking of Wright’s archive after it arrived at Avery Library in 2013 and the metaphor of intellectually unpacking all of the richness that we found,” said Avery Director Carole Ann Fabian, who worked with Bergdoll on the exhibition.

The show features about 450 works dating from the 1890s through the 1950s, including everything from drawings, models, building fragments and furniture to film, textiles, photographs and scrapbooks. Some items have rarely or never been publicly displayed.

“You don’t think of scholarship as an action sport, with people running around and making connections, but, in fact, it is,” said Bergdoll, who structured Frank Lloyd Wright at 150 around a space that functions as a chronological spine to highlight many of the architect’s major projects. Rooms for each section branch off this central gallery, and each section is introduced by a short film in which the guest curators many of whom are not Wright specialists discuss the objects they chose and why. The films illuminate the period in which Wright lived, touching on issues of race, class, media, politics, education and the environment that still resonate today.

In one section, Mabel O. Wilson, a professor at Columbia’s architecture school, researched a little known 1928 design that Wright completed for the Rosenwald Fund, which focused on arts and education among African Americans and was developing a project to subsidize the construction of rural schools throughout the segregated South. Wright’s design replaced traditional clapboard schoolhouses with structures that the students were intended to help build, making hands on labor an integral part of education. Wright’s design was never built, but it sheds light on “his own philosophy around education and the sense that architecture can stimulate the imagination of the child,” Wilson said. She also noted that in his letters, Wright, as a product of his time, often described African American culture and aesthetic sensibilities in somewhat derogatory terms. “School should be a happy place even for the negro [sic],” he wrote in a 1928 letter about the Rosenwald project.

Another section examines the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo, a massive building with integrated gardens that famously survived the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923, but was demolished in 1967 68. The centerpiece of this section is Wright’s copy of a rare illustrated book on the hotel project, annotated with sketches that provide a singular look at how the Imperial Hotel originally appeared. Also included are a dozen of the archive’s nearly 1,100 drawings of the hotel, along with furniture, textiles and tableware. Together, they demonstrate the attention Wright paid to every aspect of a design in an attempt to create a cohesive work of art.

Other sections focus on Wright’s use of ornament, his little known model of an experimental farm, his interest in Native American culture and his use of the circle to shape perceptions of the landscape.

Bergdoll, whose section reframes Wright’s proposal for a mile high skyscraper as a bid to increase the architect’s star wattage, said: “The exhibition communicates very clearly that the archives are here now in New York at a major research university, and that they are accessible for new generations of research on Wright and American architecture,

modernism and urbanism. There are facets of Wright’s career that are so relevant to issues that concern us today.”
