Cascadian Order of Self-Determination Archives
This project seeks to establish a new cultural and socio-political confederation among autonomous Cascadians of the Pacific Northwest Bio-region. We believe it is our responsibility to our local communities, to ourselves, and to the greater community at large. That, we ought to and of right be recognized when we stand and seek a peaceful resolution and settlement to international claims and disputes regarding our own cultural and socioeconomic international affairs and foreign policy.

US Housing Crisis - Negative Equity Infographic
Copy and paste the code to your site: Designed by Stamen — Bing, © 2013 Nokia, © 2013 Microsoft Corporation About the map: Negative equity is calculated by matching the estimated value of a home to all outstanding mortgage debt and lines of credit associated with the home, including home equity lines of credit and home equity loans, supplied by TransUnion, a global leader in credit and information management. All personally identifying information ("PII") is removed from the data by TransUnion before delivery to Zillow. The counties and ZIP codes in the highest percentiles (1st, 5th, 10th and 20th percentiles) of negative equity are marked with a badge. Negative equity is calculated for owner-occupied homes with mortgages for more than 870 metros, 2,500 counties, and 24,700 ZIP codes.
The Jevons paradox has been used to argue that energy conservation may be futile, as increased efficiency may increase fuel use. Nevertheless, increased efficiency can improve material living standards. Further, fuel use declines if increased efficiency is coupled with a green tax or other conservation policies that keep the cost of use the same (or higher). As the Jevons paradox applies only to technological improvements that increase fuel efficiency, policies that impose conservation standards and increase costs do not display the paradox.

The Big Six energy companies control 99 percent of the UK market, but energy cooperatives -- democratically run community renewable energy programmes -- are springing up in the fight against the "fossil fuel economy" When we think of community energy projects, we often look to the developing world. From Brazil to Indonesia, local schemes bring energy by the people, for the people, often to areas that have never had access to electricity before. These projects bring jobs in construction, operation and maintenance, often with caveats that say any surplus is shared or invested in local business or schools. But surely, the same thing isn't necessary or possible in the UK?

Immunities of Prosecutors & Judges Evolves
We hear and see the same scenario all too often. A prosecutor and/or judge tamper with or completely disregard the evidence of a criminal proceeding where an innocent person facing charges could be fully exonerated, but at a moment's notice court officials sign a life away to prison at the command of a gavel with little to no concern for the defendant. An expression in the legal field is that "law is ever evolving." It has been known for decades that prosecutors and judges alike enjoy the full immunities their occupations provide. Per Ashelman v.

The theme for the Department of the Treasury's 2007-2012 Strategic Plan is E Pluribus Unum - Out of many, one. Just as the 13 colonies came together to form our Union, the many Treasury departmental offices and bureaus operate in unity to serve the American people. The Latin phrase E Pluribus Unum is found in the Journals of the Continental Congress, June 20, 1782, where it was used to describe the Great Seal adopted that day (1).
