Mail To Your Door

Vargo, Arthritis Today, March-April 2006 "Through rain or shine" – it's the unofficial credo of mail carriers. "When my joints allow" should be the credo of mail recipients with arthritis. A flare, surgery or a mobility limitation can make a trip to the mailbox feel like a trek in the Himalayas. Members Quick Links Useful Searches Recent Posts.

High-Level EPA Adviser Accused of Scientific Fraud in Methane Leak Research

An environmental group has presented evidence that one of the EPA's top scientific advisors fraudulently concealed evidence that a commonly-used tool for collecting data from oil and gas wells gives artificially low methane measurements. (Photo: Brandon Thibodeaux / The New York Times) It's one of the highest-stakes debates in the battle over climate change policy action: How much methane is spewing from oil and gas sites nationwide, and what do we do as a result? If enough of the odorless, colorless methane gas leaks or is vented into the air, scientists say, then burning natural gas -- marketed as a green fuel that can help wean the U.S. off of high-carbon fuels -- will actually be worse for the climate than coal, long seen as the fuel that contributes the most to global warming.

I Don't See How Democratic Socialism Can Fail

So long as people maintain those goals I don't see how Democratic Socialism can fail. The reason is because it's democratic. It might have setbacks, I know.

Neither pure socialism (or even communism) nor unbridled laissez-faire economics work. Dailykos. The purpose of a business is to concentrate wealth.

This is true of General Motors and it's equally true of little Sally's lemonade stand. The business collects value from its customers, and returns to them a service that costs less than the value it collected. It had better. Otherwise, it's not a business for long. We call that gathered wealth "profit," and it moves from control of the customers into control of the business. To maximize that wealth concentration power, the business attempts to deliver the minimum amount of service while expending the least amount of effort. Decisions for how all this happens are restricted to a very small group. Put it all together and a business is meant to extract the greatest possible funds, deliver the least possible service, and put the resulting wealth in the hands of the smallest number of people. Oh, and business is meant to grow, right? An economic measure of output per unit of input.

Department of the Treasury and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) have proposed new regulations implementing the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Obergefell v. Hodges. According to the Treasury Department, the proposed regulations will clarify “that a marriage of two individuals, whether of the same sex or the opposite sex, will be recognized for federal tax purposes if that marriage is recognized by any state, possession, or territory of the United States.

The proposed regulations would also interpret the terms ‘husband’ and ‘wife’ to include same-sex spouses as well as opposite-sex spouses.” “This proposed rule change is further evidence that the Obama Administration stands firmly behind marriage equality,” said HRC Government Affairs Director David Stacy. In 2013 following the Supreme Court’s historic decision in United States v.
