As I said in my post that is located in the 'All' comments section:North American hydrology has to be reconsidered by the general public as just that - North American. Not Canadian, not American but one vast interconnected and interdependent system. My Dad, for decades, promoted that viewpoint and with it his plan for restoring the health of the freshwater systems of North America. Limiting pollutants only makes sense in combination with supporting fresh water circulation. There has to be enough water to circulate the pollutants out of the system and increasing fresh water shortages is as much a part of the problem as the pollutants themselves. The solution has to be holistic. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Recycling_and_Northern_Development_CanalPeople often balk at the enormity of the GRAND Canal proposal but the plan meets the challenges and anything less would be merely stop gap.The problem is short comings in pollution management and fresh water management from both sides of the border. This commenter is right in bring up the Canadian 'angle' as there is no border in the geological/hydrological sense. It's like saying, when treating conjoined twins, for example, "How should we manage this health challenge?", and then proceed to plan for the twin with the overt symptoms without including the other twin in the health management plan.North Americans should understand the big picture in order to ensure useful insight and problem-solving measures.
@Mike OFresh vs. dried is about different purposes. Which you want depends on the dish. While it is possible to do extruded shapes at home, the results are better with a high-end dried product. Of course, for dishes that call for fresh pasta, fresh is better.
The article says: " Proponents argue that states are better equipped to manage the West’s natural wonders than the United States Forest Service and other national land management agencies. " There is absolutely NO truth to this remark.The odds are that MOST of the public lands would be turned over to the Mining Industry, or the Logging Industry, and that in less than ten years the damage done to the land would be so great that it could not be undone.But one thing is for sure, the owners of those companies, and their stock holders will all have gotten richer. And, the politicians who voted for it will have large and well funded campaign funds.We, oh not to worry about WE. Rest assured, there will be less fresh water, less fresh air, and much less recreation land for us to use.
It is perhaps the right timer for some of the larger corporates to decentralise their operations primarily for security purposes.Another advantage would be that many of the workers would be able to relocate closer to their work place, which could prove to be more productive instead of spending many hours travelling and getting frustrated with delays in traffic or even with public transport. Providing secure parking on site will also prove to be popular with the workforce, even if this means having parking under the building or if not practical (water seepage), under the offices.If the corporates are Head Offices there doesn't have to be ground floor entrances, since all services should be able to be delivered from branches operating in other centres. Head Office should be for Management and their support staff only, and not operating staff. Policies are determined by Head Office and closer monitored by experienced Head Office personnel. This will do two main things for the organisation - train future Management staff and reduce the size of the Head Office component.Does this sound practical - if not put it into a melting pot and let all Top Management discuss the pros and cons and see what come out of these discussions. Good luck
It is hard to imagine a police office using deadly force unless he felt threatened. There should probably be more discussion about why we have so many biases that predispose us to thinking of young black males as being more violent or dangerous. But to accuse this office of murder seems quite excessive. Likewise, to allege that the police department is forging videos or lying about the course of events seems ridiculous. They uphold the law and while they are human, it seems far more probable that this reflects incredibly poor public relations and crisis management then a wide spread conspiracy.

When Will Hillary Let It Go?The real statement should be: Hillary Needs To Be Let Go.[Can we even imagine Big Dog Bill Clinton in the White House again with some type of office near the Oval Office?]Hillary needs to hang it up, take the anticoagulants for her severe head injury, concentrate on being a grandma, be glad she didn't have to serve time for Whitewater and the destruction of documents at the Rose Law Firm, and just leave us in peace and free from Clintonism and Rodhamism.A fresh true progressive would be most welcomed.
