“We hope that Tamils can return to that stability enjoyed before the colonization by the Europeans in the island of Sri Lanka,” Tamils for Trump said. (Colombo Gazette) US President Donald Trump has been urged to intervene and ensure justice for Tamils in Sri Lanka.The ‘Tamils for Trump’ organisation, in a letter to President Trump, wished him for the new year and urged him to work for international justice for the Tamil victims either through the ICC or International Tribunal for the war crimes committed by Sri Lankan officials during the ethnic war that killed over 145,000 Tamils. The Tamils for Trump said there is a need to help the Tamil victims in the North and East to determine their own destiny and reestablish Tamils’ independence. “No Singhalese has ever been held accountable for any outrage against Tamils since the independence from the British. Justice and Truth are overdue, and we expect that 2018 is the year in which Tamils should get them. US acted rightfully and courageously in helping the victims in South Sudan to determine their own destiny. The same thing must be done for Tamil victims in the northeast of Sri Lanka, and we hope you will get it done,” the letter stated. read more

Senior defensive lineman Tommy Schutt (90) and junior defensive lineman Joey Bosa (97) wait to start the next drill during during the Buckeyes’ first spring practice on March 10 at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center.Credit: Tim Moody / Sports editorThe Ohio State football team took to the field Tuesday to begin spring practice less than two months after winning the first College Football Playoff National Championship.While there will be a plethora of focus on the quarterback battle, the Buckeyes also have to find replacements for eight departed starters.That means position battles across the board will be underway throughout spring practice and into the summer, with one of the key battles coming at defensive line.With defensive linemen Michael Bennett and Steve Miller graduating, the Buckeyes will need to fill two spots on the defensive front. Coach Urban Meyer said he is counting on the young defensive linemen on the roster to step up, but at the moment, there seems to be an issue with that.“I’m very disappointed in the young defensive linemen we brought in here,” Meyer said. “Not with the kind of people that they are, just with their performance.”The Buckeyes will have All-American Joey Bosa back for his junior season, as well as senior Adolphus Washington. They are expected to anchor the line once again, but Meyer said he fears the team could take a step back if the holes created by Bennett and Miller’s departure aren’t filled.“If Mike Bennett leaves and you’re not as good as Mike Bennett, our team is not as good,” he said.Although the shoes left to fill are large, there will be plenty of players competing for those spots. On the national championship roster, there were four junior defensive linemen, two sophomores and eight freshmen.Tommy Schutt, one of the four juniors on the 2014 roster and a potential replacement for Bennett, needs to be better, Meyer said. Schutt has started just two games in his career, the last of which came in 2013 against Illinois.Senior linebacker Joshua Perry said Schutt has been good in the past “in flashes,” but consistency has been an issue.“Tommy Schutt is an older guy, but he’s been really good in the past,” Perry said. “So we’re hoping for some consistency with him.”If Schutt struggles to be more consistent, Donovan Munger and Michael Hill, two redshirt-sophomores, might get the start on the interior opposite Washington come Sept. 7, when the Buckeyes are set to open their season against Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Va. Munger rotated in on the line last season and recorded five total tackles. Hill appeared in three games early in the 2013 season before getting hurt and earning a medical redshirt.To replace Miller on the end, Meyer said he is looking at three players: Sam Hubbard, Jalyn Holmes and Tyquan Lewis.Redshirt-freshman defensive lineman Sam Hubbard participates in a drill during the Buckeyes’ first spring practice on March 10 at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center.Credit: Tim Moody / Sports editorHubbard redshirted last season, his first in Columbus, but Meyer was positive about his efforts.“We almost pulled his redshirt last year because he came on so hard,” Meyer said.Holmes, a sophomore from Virginia, rotated in on the defensive line last season and totaled five tackles during OSU’s blowout win against Kent State and four in a win over Illinois.Lewis, a redshirt-sophomore, had nine tackles in 2014, including one in the national title game.With all the different players battling for the two starting positions, Meyer said he plans to watch “very closely” and added that the young guys “have to get better.”Perry, who tallied 124 tackles last season, has more positive projections when it comes to the younger guys.“Across the board, we’ve just got a lot of guys that we wanna develop and make sure that we can have some depth but also so they can step in and be really good players for us,” Perry said.Perry added he expects the defense, with the new guys, to be “really good” next season, with the help of spring practice.“It’s a great time to get in and actually learn the game of football, really learn what we’re doing and also develop players so we can have some depth, some experience and be ready to rock ‘n’ roll,” he said. read more

first_imgDéséquilibre alimentaire : stop au grignotage France – L’institut Medical Research vient de publier les résultats d’une étude montrant que huit médecins généralistes sur 10 s’inquiètent du grignotage.Commandée par SEB, l’enquête a été menée de mai à juillet dernier sur le territoire français. Ses résultats montrent que les Franciliens payent le plus lourd tribut à la malbouffe : leurs conditions de vie font qu’ils sont les plus touchés par les déséquilibres alimentaires. Pointés du doigt, les déjeuners sur le pouce qui concernent 92% de la population adulte. Les autres causes sont une alimentation trop grasse, et la consommation de plats préparés qui remplacent la cuisine maison. Chez les enfants, ce sont les grignotages et l’excès de sucre qui causent le plus de tort, ainsi que le manque de variété des repas. Au total, les médecins français notent des déséquilibres alimentaires chez plus de 25% de leurs patients. A la clé, prise de poids, obésité, diabète, hypertension, cholestérol… Un bon point peut être accordé aux Bretons, qui sont les mieux nourris de tous les Français.

first_imgAs Samsung struggles with a widespread recall of its Galaxy Note 7 smartphone, more incidents are popping up that reaffirm the possible dangers issued by the company, including some major fires seemingly out of place with such a small device.This latest report comes from Port St. Lucie, Fla., where police investigated a fire that had fully engulfed a car in flames Tuesday night.While officials haven’t confirmed whether the fire was caused by a Galaxy Note 7, the owner of the car assigned that blame. According to WPBF, a local ABC affiliate, Clifford Samuels, who was unharmed following the blaze, told police that he had been charging his phone when it “burst into flames.”Fire marshals are still investigating the cause of the fire.Whether or not the Galaxy Note 7 could’ve caused the fire, the incident is yet another blow to the technology manufacturer. This latest incident comes after Samsung issued a recall in the beginning of September after it received reports of the phone exploding due to faulty batteries. It’s believed that the recall can affect 2.5 million phones.In the meantime, shares have dropped drastically, causing billions of dollars in losses to its market value.Samsung issued a statement last week that claimed there were a small number of incidents, none fatal. It’s also working with the Consumer Product Safety Commission to issue an official nationwide recall and has announced plans for a software update in South Korea that would limit the battery charge.If you’re wondering whether to return your Galaxy Note 7, please do. According to Tim Baxter, president of Samsung Electronics America, “New Note7 replacement devices will be issued to exchange program participants upon completion of the CPSC process. In the interim, consumers can return their Note7 for another device.”Another high profile event can be attributed to the Note 7. It was reported Monday that one of the phones exploded in a 6-year-old boy’s hands, causing severe burns.last_img read more

first_imgStay on target Review: ‘Daemon X Machina’ Has Big Robots, Small Fun on Nintendo SwitchThis Robot Is Equal Parts Lawnmower and Snow Blower I dunno about you, but I’m really fascinated by home automation. Yeah, it’s a little creepy, having parts of your life more or less managed by machines or computers, but honestly? It’s just nice. I got a great HDMI switch a couple of weeks back that automagically moves to the device I need by figuring out which is sending the most data and therefore most likely to be “active.” It’s dorky, but it’s just the kind of thing I dork out over.Anyway… wouldn’t it be rad if your whole room was like that? That’s the idea behind Ori Systems. It’s basically a motorized room that can adjust and move about based on your needs. You can, for example, configure it so that you have a sprawling mattress to catch your Zs. Then, when it’s time to start the day, you can fold that away and get to work at your desk. Or, you could tuck away the business and bust out the entertainment center.Ori Systems started as an MIT project called CityHome. The idea is to help automate and motorize living spaces to help city dwellers get more efficient use of their space. If you’re not using your bed, you should be able to fold it away and reclaim that area. It could make studios and other compact spaces far, far more livable. Running with the idea of folding, the group rebranded themselves as Ori Systems — named after origami, the Japanese art of folding.Ori – One Room. A Hundred Ways. from Ori on Vimeo.Right now it’s only available to real-estate developers for a whopping $10,000 in major North American cities. Models have been tested in a few apartment complexes and Airbnb spots. Using that, Ori hopes that they’ve got a system that could go a long way towards making cities more comfortable. There are tons of methods of control, from automated systems run on Belkin’s WeMo hardware to simple voice commands via Amazon’s Alexa.There’s only going to be 1,200 units for now, but hopefully, that’ll be enough to start expanding. I know I’m not supposed to editorialize and play up the business I’m covering, but this is Geek, and I think this thing is cool as hell. I want one, even though I could never afford it. But I just… love everything about it and the idea of it, and…. Uggggggggh why does stuff I like have to take time to be a thing?last_img read more

first_imgStay on target Watch: Bill Gates Reveals His Worst Fear in Netflix Docuseries TrailerPlex Enters The Streaming Service Wars With Cable-Style Bundle In our review of DirecTV Now (don’t you dare say Direct TV) we mused that the precursors to today’s streaming TV service revolution were satellite TV providers. You could trace a line leading from weird but cool and premium satellite-based niche cable TV alternatives to weird but cool and premium internet-based (not longer so) niche cable TV alternatives. You’re still cutting the cord; you’re just cutting it for something else.Back in the day, if you wanted to get TV from a satellite dish, naturally you’d at least consider Dish Network. And like DirecTV, Dish now has its own answer for today’s streaming-obsessed culture: AirTV. But while other providers have created their own streaming software services, AirTV is a hardware solution, a solution that feels like a backdoor to bolting a satellite dish on your house again.Like Roku or Apple TV, Dish AirTV is a streaming media device. Specifically, it’s an Android-based, 4K streaming box that collects and presents all of the services you’re subscribed to in one convenient interface. Want to watch streaming shows on Netflix? You can. Want to watch live TV through Sling TV? You can. The remote has dedicated branded buttons for those two services, but you can load up anything you can find on the Google Play Store. You can even pair a Bluetooth controller to play some games.At first, I thought it was odd that Dish would only make a box for playing other company’s services rather than creating a service of its own. AirTV is for using the internet to help you conveniently watch more things on your TV, not watching more TV anywhere via the convenience of the internet. But then I remembered that Dish also makes the Hopper DVR box, so the company is no stranger to hardware.Plenty of other boxes offer similar streaming functionality as Dish AirTV. Heck, most video game console offers those features. However, AirTV does offer one peculiar feature its competition lacks. The base AirTV costs $99. But for $39 (or in a $129 discount bundle) you can also purchase the AirTV adapter. This Chromecast-esque dongle lets you watch local over-the-air (OTA) channels through AirTV. That means you can enjoy classic local sports and news channels, your trusted NBC or CBS affiliates, through the thoroughly modern AirTV streaming interface. It’s pretty wild.But is it actually useful? Like Slingbox, the focus on “normal” TV seems like a way to help cautious and skeptical older folks still married to traditional television put one foot in uncharted streaming waters. Unless you have a particularly freaky public access scene, who else is that concerned about keeping their local channels?Plus, using the adapter requires an extra antenna installation process complicated enough Dish lets you hire a professional to come do it for you, provided you live somewhere you can even bolt an antenna to. It runs counter to the streaming’s easy, untethered nature. It’s like it’s just a cool skin on regular satellite TV. I think of that meme where old Steve Buscemi poorly tries to blend in with the youths. “How do you do, fellow cord cutters?”Still, having access to OTA channels is a potentially cool feature AirTV offers that no one else does. And in the crowded streaming landscape, having anything to stand out is helpful. If you’re going to get Dish AirTV, you might as well go all out and get the adapter as well. How else are you going to watch Stranger Things and your local Indiana weather on the same box?Purchase Dish AirTVView as: One Page Slides1/201. So many streaming TV services to choose from.

first_imgRep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Battle Ground, is calling for the repeal of an “antiquated” law that prevents tribes from operating distilleries. Given the support she received from the House Natural Resources’ Indian Affairs subcommittee during a hearing for HR 5317, Herrera Beutler may succeed.“I’m pleased to put this bill forward to help place Indian tribes on equal footing with nontribal citizens by allowing them to pursue the same economic opportunities as everyone else,” Herrera Beutler said after Thursday’s hearing. “It’s encouraging that it’s advancing in Congress; it will be a win for the Chehalis Tribe when it’s allowed to build a distillery, brewery, restaurant and educational training facility on its own land. And it’ll be a win for Southwest Washington when we remove this 1834 law because this project will bring more than 100 jobs to our region.”Chehalis Tribal Chairman Harry Pickernell Sr. testified at the hearing before the subcommittee.“Much of the tribe’s land is on the flood plain, and the tribe has very little land available for development,” Pickernell said. “The tribe operates a casino but is always looking for a way to diversify its economic base.”The rule that Herrera Beutler’s bill would repeal is leftover from liquor prohibition rules set in 1834. Anyone who builds a distillery on tribal land faces a $1,000 fine and the government is directed to break up any operations that exist.Pickernell testified that the rule has never been enforced, but it is impacting their ability to move forward with new development. He said the Chehalis Tribe partnered with the Great Wolf Resorts to build the first Great Wolf Lodge on tribal lands in 2008. The tribe is now planning to build a standalone brewery and distillery.last_img read more

first_imgThe Sitka Fine Arts Camp opened a permanent art installation at a Wednesday night. “Create, Memory” showcases pieces from local Alaska Native artists. The exhibit is a nod to the history of the original Sheldon Jackson Training School and later, college, which was influential in the lives of many Alaska Natives.Strength. Loss. Healing. Transformation. Those are themes present in the art adorning new gallery space in Allen Hall.A trio of Robert Davis Hoffman’s graphic paintings of native stories—Salmon Boy, The Woman who married a Bear and Raven baby—line the stairwell. His artist statement said those stories are all ones of transformation, representing how the campus became what it is today. Above the stairs is a canopy of copper devils club leaves, crafted by artist and curator of the collection, Mary Goddard.Goddard said devil’s club is symbol of healing and protection in Tlingit culture. She wanted her piece to evoke feelings “similar to when you go for a walk in the forest and you’re walking under these giant leaves and you feel protected and you feel secure. I wanted that same feeling when you come into the environment.”Her piece is the bridge between Jennifer Younger’s copper “Fragmented,” representing the Presbyterian presence in Tlingit culture and Dave Galanin’s 4-foot copper tinaa, which looks like a shield, a symbol of wealth and status.“It really did break apart their culture and their native lifestyle,” said Younger. “So It’s broken apart you can see the pieces—the broken raven the broken eagle but it what it represents is that it’s still here and those piece still can be put back together and carry on that history.”The tinaa is ancient symbol, and was also used as currency, which fascinates Galanin. The famed metal worker says it implies the value of sharing knowledge, culture and art, like the Fine Arts Camp does.“The thing about artwork in general is those are the last things that people find after a culture dies off and when you look at the Mayans for instance they have your art still,” Galanin said. “The people aren’t there but the artwork is. It still stands.”The CIRI foundation and matching monies from the Steward Family funded the exhibit. Galanin said Goddard recruited the artists first and they worked on their pieces independently.“The amazing thing is they all tie in together,” said Galanin. “The story evolved on its own.”To Younger, the artwork’s story is one of perseverance.“Any maybe hurt, even unintentional, we all can heal and bring it back together full circle,” Younger said.Sitka Fine Arts Camp wants the campus to become more of a community gathering space. Kenley Jackson, the camp’s program director, said the artwork gives it that feel.“We hope people enjoy it for years to come and kids are inspired by it,” said Jackson. “I think when you read the artist statement it tells the story of the impact art can have and the impact this place has had on people for a long time.”While the work is pregnant with meaning, it’s also all visually stunning.“You see it right as you walk in and it’s like, ‘bam.’ It’s beautiful,” spectator Amanda Roberts said, talking about Galanin’s tinaa.Roberts said she enjoys how the work will remain on campus forever, a talisman of the history of the Tlingit people and the college.“This is something to be able to leave behind and this is such an artistic community it’s neat to be able to have that shared in an artistic way,” said Roberts.“Create, Memory” is in the Del Shirley room on the second floor of Allen Hall, named for Delbert Wallace Shirley III, who taught at Sheldon Jackson College.last_img read more

first_imgA new study co-authored by two UAF researchers suggests that contrary to previous studies Alaska’s wildfires and thawing permafrost may not generate more carbon that its ecosystems can capture – at least, through the end of the century.Download AudioThat’s potentially positive short-term news. But the study by David McGuire and Scott Rupp advises that Alaska could yet become a net producer of carbon if temperature increases, permafrost thaw and wildfire frequency and intensity are much greater than the study anticipates.That in turn could lead to greater concentration of atmospheric greenhouse gases and more warming, an ongoing process climate scientists call a “feedback loop.”McGuire, with UAF’s Institute of Arctic Biology, and Rupp, director of UAF’s Scenarios Network for Alaska and Arctic Planning, worked with other researchers from the U.S. Geological Survey and Forest Service on the study. It’s titled Baseline and Projected Future Carbon Storage and Greenhouse-Gas Fluxes in Ecosystems of Alaska.last_img read more

first_imgSolar panels installed at the Administration and Humanities Building on UAA’s campus. (Photo by Samantha Davenport, Alaska Public Media)Governor Bill Walker’s Climate Action Leadership Team is trying to envision innovative ways to reduce carbon emissions in Alaska. For inspiration, task force members are looking to Connecticut, where a state-sponsored bank has helped loan millions of dollars for energy efficiency projects.Listen nowBert Hunter has a favorite project the Connecticut Green Bank has helped fund. You can almost hear hear his eyes sparkling through the phone as he describes it. An old textile mill is being transformed into shops and affordable housing, and on site is a built-in hydroelectric dream.“Literally, a river will run through it,” Hunter said with a chuckle.That river will generate power for the building through two turbines — lowering energy costs for the residents.Hunter is the Connecticut Green Bank’s Chief Investment Officer, and he admits this is unusual project for a conventional bank loan. He says those barriers to installing energy upgrades can exist for regular homeowners, too. Not just big ambitious commercial projects. That’s because in the eyes of a traditional bank, a loan for something like a kitchen remodel is typical.“But if you start talking about solar and energy efficiency … you know, most bankers don’t know how to approach that,” Hunter said.Hunter says the concept of renewable energy is still relatively new, which can make traditional banks cautious. But the Connecticut Green Bank has enough leverage to put those lenders at ease.Hunter explains the Connecticut Green Bank partners with credit unions and community banks, acting like a conduit. For residents who apply, that’s where the money comes from. If a homeowner does default on their loan, it’s the Green Bank that shares the burden of paying back those cost.This lowers the perceived risk for lenders, and it’s how Hunter says they can offer single digit interest rates for energy efficiency projects.In the six years it’s been around, the Connecticut Green Bank has more than doubled its initial investment of $70 million dollars, and states like Alaska are starting to take notice.“We’re talking about setting up an enterprise that is going to make money,” Chris Rose, who serves on Governor Walker’s climate action task force, said.Rose is a big fan of establishing a green bank here. It’s included in a draft policy, which is expected to be submitted to the governor next month.Rose thinks Alaskans could save a lot of money by making their homes more energy efficient.“In the past, the state spent over a half a billion dollars to do that very successfully. But we don’t have that grant money anymore,” Rose said.Rose says a system that operates like a business makes a lot of sense. You put money in and that money comes back in the form of interest.But Alaska has a huge budget deficit. So, where would that initial money come from?“I don’t think a green bank would be a huge lift,” Rose said. “I do think the issue of where the money is going to come from is a big question. A carbon tax is just one potential source of revenue.”Rose says to look at what other states are doing. At least seven have proposed carbon pricing legislation. Alaska should be thinking long term.Connecticut didn’t establish its green bank with a carbon tax. It transformed an existing energy program and collects a small fee on utility payments.However Alaska decides to go about it, Bert Hunter has some advice: get the state on board and start with a pot of money.“Alaska is no stranger to making these kinds of investments,” Hunter said.Hunter is talking about Alaska’s Permanent Fund Corporation. It invested close to $100 million in a leading financier of renewable energy this year.last_img read more

Share Marjorie Kamys CoteraState Sen. Charles Perry, R-Lubbock, answers questions regarding Senate Bill 4, better known as the anti-“sanctuary cities” bill, on Feb. 7, 2017 in the state Capitol in Austin.Editor’s note: This story was updated on Wednesday, February 8, 2017, to reflect the Senate’s final vote on Senate Bill 4. The Republican-controlled Texas Senate gave its final stamp of approval on Wednesday to a bill that would gut funding from local and state entities that don’t enforce immigration laws. Senate Bill 4, filed by state Sen. Charles Perry, would punish local and state government entities and college campuses that refuse to cooperate with federal immigration officials or enforce immigration laws. Wednesday’s vote was 20-10 along party lines, with state Sen. José Rodríguez, D-El Paso, absent. Rodriguez was present a day earlier, when the Senate tentatively approved it on a 20-11 vote. The bill would also punish local governments if their law enforcement agencies fail to honor requests, known as detainers, from federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers to hand over immigrants in custody for possible deportation. Entities in violation would be stripped of state grant funding and also be subject to civil fines. Department heads could also be subject to criminal prosecution if they violate the provisions of the bill. The bill doesn’t apply to victims of or witnesses to crimes, public schools or hospital districts. The legislation was listed last month as one of Gov. Greg Abbott’s emergency items, which allows lawmakers to vote on the issue before the traditional 60-day waiting period to hear bills on the floor of either chamber. Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick also deemed the bill a legislative priority. The issue garnered national attention after Abbott made good on his promise this month to cut state funding for Travis County after that county’s sheriff, Sally Hernandez, enacted a policy that greatly rolls back her department’s cooperation with ICE. Wednesday’s vote followed an hours long debate on Tuesday where most of the amendments offered by Democrats were defeated. Like he did during a 16-hour committee hearing on the bill last week, Perry held his ground during the floor debate Tuesday, pushing back against accusations that his bill was a “deportation” bill after Democrats insisted the policy would cast a wide net and snare people in the country illegally but who are otherwise law abiding. Perry said it was about the rule of law and making sure every law enforcement agency follows the same procedures. He added that even if a person is in the country illegally, he or she would not have a reason to fear his legislation if they didn’t commit crimes. “This bill ensures that there is predictability that our laws are applied without prejudice” no matter who is in custody, he said. He also added that if a local government loses money because it adopted a “sanctuary” policy, the blame is on them. Perry amended his bill Tuesday to add tough civil and criminal penalties for entities that don’t comply with the bill’s provisions. One amendment would make a department head whose agency violates the provisions of SB 4 subject to criminal prosecution in the form of a class A misdemeanor. Another added a provision that would subject the local agency to civil penalties, including a fine at least $1,000 for the first offense and $25,000 for each subsequent violation. The severity of the proposals prompted state Sen. Sylvia Garcia, D-Houston to ask Perry how far he was willing to go. “What’s the next [amendment] going to do? Take their first born?” she asked. The upper chamber also predictably shot down by party line votes several amendments Democrats offered to make the bill more palatable to their constituents, including a measure by state Sen. Judith Zaffirini, D-Laredo, that would have excluded college campuses. An amendment by state Sen. José Menéndez, D-San Antonio, which sought to require peace officers to learn immigration law was also voted down, as was another by state Sen. Eddie Lucio, Jr. that would have prohibited the arrest of a person only because he or she was in the country illegally. Garcia also asked Perry to remove a section of the bill that would punish a local entity for “endorsing” a policy that prohibits or discourages enforcing immigration law. Garcia said that section could be a violation of an elected official’s right to free speech and could be interpreted broadly. Before the chamber began voting on the amendments, senators debated certain aspects of the bill for more than three hours. Republicans used the time to reiterate that the bill, as filed, would stand up to court challenges that might be brought over questions of constitutionality. That debate was preceded by a memo attorney general Ken Paxton sent Perry, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick and State Affairs Committee Chair Joan Huffman, R-Houston, in which Paxton said concerns over the bill’s legal standing were overblown. “Our review of the law concludes CSSB 4 is constitutional, there are viable methods for covered entities to avoid liability regarding invalid detainers, and the remainder of the legal concerns are unfounded,” he said in the letter. “CSSB 4 would make great strides to keep communities secure by requiring state and local law enforcement to cooperate with federal agencies as they take care to faithfully execute the immigration laws of the United States.” During the debate, Perry also said that the measure would be the first-ever legislation to codify protections for victims of or witnesses to crimes that agree to cooperate with law enforcement. That came after Democratic lawmakers said that even though the protections are in place, the immigrant communities would still operate under a blanket of fear if they reached out to law enforcement for any reason, including reporting a crime. Perry said that the misinformation being pedaled about the bill might actually make it more difficult for police to get witnesses or victims to cooperate. But he said that left the door open for a “golden opportunity” for law enforcement to explain to the immigrant community what the bill actually does.  State Sen. John Whitmire, D-Houston, said that although lawmakers might be familiar with the nuances of the bill, the general public isn’t and law enforcement officers from across the state have said repeatedly that hinders their efforts to investigate crimes and keep the streets safe. “It may be a shame that people are afraid. But it doesn’t change the fact that people are afraid,” Whitmire said. “I am listening to the experts. It may be a shame they feel that way, but it’s absolutely true.” After Tuesday’s preliminary vote, Abbott praised SB 4 in a statement. “Today’s action in the Senate helps ensure that Sheriffs and officials across Texas comply with federal immigration laws and honor Immigration and Custom Enforcement detainer requests that keep dangerous criminals off of our streets,” the statement read in part. “I want to thank Senator Perry for his leadership on this issue and look forward to final passage in the Senate tomorrow.” The bill now heads to the Texas House, though whether the lower chamber accepts the bill as it’s currently presented isn’t clear. State Rep. Charlie Geren, R-Fort Worth, filed a companion bill to Perry’s original proposal, but the Texas House hasn’t yet named committees and isn’t moving as fast on this — or any other legislation — as the Senate is. last_img read more

first_img How do cataracts affect your vision? Mike Duncan, president of the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity, which lobbies for the coal industry, said he hoped that following Monday’s ruling, the EPA would withdraw its pending greenhouse gas rules out of recognition of the limits of its own authority.“If they don’t, I’m sure we’ll be seeing them in court again very soon,” Duncan said.The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that the EPA failed to account properly for the costs to industry when it first decided to regulate mercury and other toxic emissions from coal- and oil-fired plants. The decision sends the case back to a lower court while leaving the rules in place, but industry advocates say it’s largely too late. That’s because many power plants shuttered while others installed costly upgrades in order to comply with the rule, which took effect in April.Yet the mercury rules, while an important part of Obama’s environmental legacy, pale in comparison to the unprecedented carbon dioxide limits for power plants that the White House is expected to finalize in August. Obama is counting on drastic emissions reductions from those rules to meet the U.S. commitment to a major global climate treaty that Obama has been championing. Mesa family survives lightning strike to home Such a move would indefinitely delay Obama’s carbon dioxide limits, a key element of his legacy and his biggest selling point as he urged other world leaders to commit their countries to reduce greenhouse gases as part of the climate treaty to be finalized this year in Paris. Already, Obama is on a short timeline; if the rules aren’t firmly in place by the time Obama leaves office in 2017, his successor could do away with them much more easily.___Reach Josh Lederman on Twitter at http://twitter.com/joshledermanAPCopyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. The difference between men and women when it comes to pain Comments   Share   Top Stories Sponsored Stories In developing the carbon dioxide rules, the EPA did take into account the anticipated cost to industry — $7.3 billion to $8.8 billion, to be exact. EPA spokeswoman Melissa Harrison said the agency has long considered cost when writing rules based on the section of the Clean Air Act that’s being used to curb carbon dioxide emissions.“There is no reason that this court ruling should have any impact on the ability of the administration to develop and implement the Clean Power Plan,” added White House press secretary Josh Earnest, using the administration’s nickname for the carbon rules.Still, those rules face a bevy of other legal challenges, including claims that the technology needed for power plants to comply isn’t yet commercially available or affordable. Opponents in Congress and the energy industry argue the administration has failed to prove that such technology has been “adequately demonstrated” and therefore can’t require its use.Previously, the White House had enjoyed a string of victories defending its environmental rules before the Supreme Court, including decisions allowing the government to regulate pollution that crosses state lines and affirming that the EPA can use the Clean Air Act to reduce greenhouse gases. Monday’s ruling on mercury, which followed Obama victories before the court last week on health care and gay marriage, offered hope to Obama’s opponents that the court was finally willing to block the EPA from exceeding its authority. New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies WASHINGTON (AP) — Sweeping pollution limits at the center of President Barack Obama’s climate change plan are facing increased scrutiny in the wake of a Supreme Court ruling that showed that the justices aren’t afraid to thwart perceived overreach by Obama or his Environmental Protection Agency.The high court’s ruling undermined Obama administration regulations targeting mercury and other hazardous air pollutants — a different set of regulations from the greenhouse gas limits that Obama is counting on to slow the effects of global warming. Still, the court’s willingness to rein in the EPA emboldened opponents of Obama’s climate change agenda, who said the court had finally woken up to what they call the haphazard and costly nature of the environmental regulations that Obama has put forth. Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility 5 people who need to visit the Ultrastar Multi-tainment Center Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall “This case signals that you’ve got at least five justices on the Supreme Court that are not going to just go along with anything the EPA wants to do,” said Jeffrey Holmstead, the EPA’s former air and radiation chief under President George W. Bush. “They’re not going to be bashful in striking down EPA rules.”That affirmation from the court provided fodder for Republicans in Congress who have encouraged states to simply ignore Obama’s climate change rules. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, of the coal-heavy state of Kentucky, said the mercury ruling was a “critical reminder” for governors that Obama’s regulations would inflict pain on the middle class. McConnell’s office said he had conveyed to the governors that there would be no consequences to waiting to see whether the regulations even survive in the courts.Another factor: Since the mercury rules had already gone into effect before the Supreme Court ruled against them on Monday, industry groups said the damage had already been done. Going forward, Holmstead said, the court may be more likely to put a temporary block — known as a “stay” — on the carbon dioxide rules out of recognition that they may eventually be overturned.last_img read more
