It’s not the first time that communities have received news that lead is present in drinking water. Portland now joins the ranks of those cities as Superintendant Carole Smith happened to not say anything to teachers and parents about lead being in the water supply of public schools. At least two schools have been affected by the lead content. Access to water has been cut off, but there is no indication as to how much lead has been ingested by those who have consumed the water.
The neglect by the Superintendant warrants a dismissal or at least a very stern punishment. Lead can cause severe health issues. To not tell students and teachers shows irresponsibility on behalf of the school system. The Environmental Protection Agency gave notice that the faucets should not be used because of the lead content. When the tests came back to the schools, there wasn’t a letter sent home or any kind of phone call. The schools simply continued to keep the water on, letting students and those who were in the school drink water that was contaminated. Some should ask whether the school system is prepared to pay for any medications or healthcare if there are any ill effects as a result of drinking the water. Someone should be held responsible if children get sick as the information was in front of the officials and was ignored.
The ongoing drought in the American West has raised serious concerns with regard to the water needs of the area’s growing population and its many agricultural industries. One proposal that was born on Wall Street may help solve this problem on the opposite side of the country.
The American West has always been known for its dryness, but this was not a problem when the area was sparsely populated. Since World War II, however, tens of millions of Americans have flocked to Western states, particularly California, Colorado, Arizona and Nevada. In combination with the drought, the change in demographics has created a water shortfall. Closely associated with the shortfall is water distribution, but some observers have attributed this to the continued use of 19th century laws. These laws allocate most of the water to agricultural industries.
Disque Dean is a New York hedge fund manager who believes that the answer to the problem rests in free market principles. A careful summation of his opinions can be found in an article from The Atlantic magazine at href=”https://www.reddit.com/r/TheAtlantic/comments/44v3ea/a_freemarket_plan_to_save_the_american_west_from drought/
Farmers and other heavy users of water are currently prohibited from selling water across state lines. In accordance with capitalist principles, these and other regulations would be lifted, allowing for the distribution of water to those who need the most. This principle was adopted in a section of Colorado, but led to an economic downturn related to an inadequate supply of water. One proposal to prevent this from occurring elsewhere would employ free market principles with limited regulation to assure that the water needs of everyone are met.

The series, which was broadcast from 1961-66 on CBS, featured Wilbur Post, an architect, married to Carol. He had a talking horse named Mr. Ed. The horse would only talk to Wilbur, which seemed to stir up all kinds of trouble for him. The series won a TV Land Award in 2005. It was one of the first shows to be syndicated.
Alan Young, did guest appearances on many other TV shows. He played a friend to Rod Taylor’s George in the 1961 film, “The Time Machine.” He reappeared in a small role in a 2002 remake of the “Time Machine” starring Guy Pearce. He recorded the narration for the animated version of the film, to be released in April 2015.
Young transitioned later in his career into doing voice work for several animated series. He finally became the new voice of Scrooge McDuck in 1983, working on several features. He did voice work for Disney in,” Disney’s A Christmas Carol.” His voice was heard on “Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo,” “Spider Man and His Amazing Friends,” “The Incredible Hulk”, “The Smurfs”, ”Alvin and the Chipmunks” and “A Flintstone Family Christmas.” He did guest appearances on “The Love Boat,” “Down to Earth”,” Murder She Wrote,” “Sabrina the Teenage Witch”, and “The Tony Danza Show.”

Hawaii is known for its beautiful beaches, breathtaking landscapes and crystal clear waters. Although, the island is now known for feral donkeys. 500 of them to be exact. The herd started much smaller, but the animals were left unchecked because they were in rural areas and did not affect anyone.
Recently though the donkeys have had to migrate to populated areas to find food and water. Drought it the island hard and the result is that wildlife will move closer to populations to find the sustenance that they need. This has caused some major problems on road ways and drivers have been complaining about the hazard.
The USPCA has taken the initiative to gather up the donkeys and put them up for adoption. At the shelters they receive food, water, medical checks and shots. They have then been adopted out to homes that can care for them abnd love them.
The USPCA is proud of how the situation has been handled. They have also pointed out that not one Federal dollar was used in theis effort. Donations have entirely covered all the costs of the medical checks and adoptions. Of the 500 donkeys that were rounded up, only 50 remain that need homes.
The terms of adoption are that not one donkey will be alone. They must either go to a home that already has a donkey friend for them, or they must be adopted out in pairs.
We all have come to love everything about Google. We love Google search, we love being able to log onto our phones and tell google what to do. Google has honestly become a part of our daily lives to the point that we often tell people to Google us when they don’t believe we have accomplished all the things we said we have. Or maybe that’s just me. In any case Google continues to take over the world and rather you like it or not I am a firm believer that google is here and here to stay.
This week Google hosted Google I/O which is their annual developer conference. This conference much to the anticipation of many announced once of Google’s most recent new inventions: Google Home. Google home is being compared to Amazon Echo. It is a tool that can run in the back ground of your home. All those random questions you often ask Google’s search engine you can now simply ask via home. It’s an answered prayer for those who hate having to log onto a computer or grab your cell phone just to do a google search.
One of the UFC’s most dynamic fighters, Conor McGregor, had a sit down dinner Wednesday night with UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta and UFC president Dana White at the quite classy Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills.
The dinner comes after McGregor was struck from the UFC 200 card last month for refusing to participate in required promotional advertisements for the event. However, it seems there was no love lost (at least between McGregor and White) as they were seen embracing one another with a hug before entering the hotel for dinner.
After the dinner McGregor responded positively with the media regarding the sit-down stating the men all have a good relationship and sometimes emotions come into play when they shouldn’t in the business world.
McGregor’s emotions were likely elevated and got the best of him when the UFC mandatorily requested McGregor to appear in Las Vegas to shoot the promotional advertisements while he was back "home" in Ireland training for UFC 200. McGregor’s previous fight with Nate Diaz in UFC 196 entailed a poor showing after Diaz, taking the fight on less than two weeks’ notice, submitted McGregor in the second round.
The UFC failed to officially comment on the dinner meeting between the McGregor and the UFC’s two top dogs. However, if White’s twitter is any indication of how the meeting went it’s a good sign as he posted a pic of himself and Fertitta on the jet with a smiley face the morning after.
Hillary Clinton is no stranger to controversy. Clinton has been able to dodge and deflect most of the issues that show her making poor decisions and creating more issues than she has been credited with solving. Clinton told the country that she would participate in a California debate with Bernie Sanders before the June 7th primary, but in true Clinton fashion, she is reneging on that promise. Hillary thinks she is the Democratic nominee, and at this point, another debate with Sanders is a waste of time as far as she is concerned. <br><br>
Political analysts say Clinton has a right to back out of the debate. If she agrees to debate Sanders again, it could damage her already damaged persona. <a href=”http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/may/19/hillary-clinton-ducking-final-debate-with-bernie-s/”>According to an article published by Washingtontimes.com, Clinton declared the contest over on May 18th on CNN, and she is setting her sights on Donald Trump.</a> Sanders is a non-issue now. <br><br>
But Bernie Sanders isn’t going away. Clinton is running a campaign, but Bernie Sanders is leading a movement. A political and social movement that is long overdue in the United States. His grass roots movement has grabbed the attention of voters around the country. More people are interested in the election this year, because this is the year that the hostage agenda that the two party system has promoted for years is beginning to crack, and it is finally being exposed for what it is. <br><br>
When you take a look at the next line of smart phone that Google is <a href=”http://digg.com/video/project-ara-video-google-modular”>experimenting with</a>, you can already see how this one might end up being pretty fun in general. The key is with technology that if you aren’t moving forward, then you will soon get lost in the dust. And, if you start to think about the new ideas, apps, and technologies that Google has been producing in recent years, it almost seems like a perfect match for Google to come out with something so inspiring and creative, yet somehow so normal for them.
The news of this new development has continued to help <a href=”http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=GOOGL”>Google’s stock price</a>, and while the entire market has seemed down in general over the last few months any good news is great news for the shareholders. Google (and Alphabet, Inc.), may not be the ones who will turn the economy around by themselves, but when it comes to the company’s ability to innovate and continue to grow, it only makes sense to see that the eyes of the world continue to be on Google. And, to put it bluntly, when Google innovates and grows then the rest of the world is just as excited and optimistic as the children who open gifts on Christmas morning.
Stay tuned for more news about Google as well as news about the new modular phone that they are currently creating.
