pride , sloth

Pride: Chris was always prideful when it came to Allison. She was a good student, a good kid, she was popular. Anytime anyone asked him about her he couldn’t help bragging a little.

Sloth: Taking out the trash. It’s such a benal thing, takes so little effort, but he’ll just stare at the full trash bag for a bit before actually pulling it out, tying it up, and taking it out to the bins.

Group Pushes Congress On Abandoned Uranium Mine Cleanup

The people behind Clean Up the Mines understand that others have been trying for years to clean up abandoned uranium mines and have mostly met with limited success. But they say that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t keep trying. The grass-roots advocacy group of environmental, Native American and other organizations launched in April with the goal of getting Congress to mandate cleanup of the more than 10,000 abandoned mines in the country, at least 500 of which are on the Navajo Nation. “This needs to be a federal standard,” said Klee Benally, a Navajo who is a member of Clean Up the Mines. “It needs to be the highest that we can possibly have to address these toxic abandoned uranium mines.” Key to that effort is a proposed piece of legislation, the Uranium Exploration and Mining Accountability Act, that would require a complete inventory of the thousands of abandoned mines in the U.S. It would be the first bill specifically addressing uranium mining, said Charmaine White Face, who drafted the proposal and is coordinator for Defenders of the Black Hills. She said Clean Up the Mines formed after several native communities in South Dakota shared concerns that abandoned mines had contaminated their water supply. http://goo.gl/dQpyqb

San Francisco Peaks to Get 20 More Years of Sewage Snow

ICTMN Staff

8/11/14

The City of Flagstaff has extended the controversial Snowbowl’s wastewater contract for 20 years.

This means that the mountains sacred to 13 tribes will be subject to artificial snow made from treated sewage through 2034.

“This extension amounts to committing 3.6 billion gallons of treated sewage to be sprayed on a sensitive mountain ecosystem,” said Klee Benally of Protect the Peaks, a consortium of groups opposing the plan, in a statement. “This is where indigenous people pray and where children will be exposed to harmful contaminants in snow made from this effluent. This is incredibly offensive, unsustainable and ultimately irresponsible considering the escalating water crisis we’re facing in the Southwest.”

The city announced the extension on Friday August 8, the Arizona Daily Sun reported. Snowbowl had asked for the extension at the end of July. Neither city council approval nor a public hearing was required because the extension constituted a renewal rather than a new contract, and was thus considered an administrative matter, the newspaper said.

Under the agreement, whose terms remain the same, Snowbowl will continue to have access to as much as 1.5 million gallons daily from November through February, and the utilities director can approve up to 2.25 million gallons per day, the Arizona Daily Sun said.

CHP’li Demirçalı: Birlik için Ekmeleddin İhsanoğlu

CHP Genel Sekreter Yardımcısı Adana Miletvekili Ali Demirçalı, PM Üyesi Gökçe Pişkin ile birlikte İmamoğlu İlçesinde Cumhurbaşkanı Adayı Ekmeleddin İhsanoğlu’na destek istedi.

 

Ali Demirçalı ve Gökçe Pişkin CHP İmamoğlu İlçe Başkanı Benal Karagöz ile birlikte esnafları ziyaret etti. CHP Genel Sekreter Yardımcısı Ali Demirçalı, AKP Cumhurbaşkanı Adayı Başbakan Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’ın yargılanmaktan kaçmak ve 5 yıl kazanmak için bu göreve talip olduğunu, halkın hırsıza oy vermeyeceğini söyledi. CHP ve birçok siyasi partinin desteklediği dünyanın tanıdığı, barıştan ve kardeşlikten yana olan Ekmeleddin İhsanoğlu’nun Cumhurbaşkanı seçileceğini belirten Demirçalı, “AKP iktidarı ve onun Başbakanı Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’a halkımız neden oy versin? İmamoğlu halkı neden oy versin? Emekli, çiftçi, emekçi neden oy versin? AKP Adayı taraf olduğunu söylüyor. Cumhurbaşkanı tarafsız olmalı. Tüm halkımızın Cumhurbaşkanı olmalı. AKP’nin adayı daha seçilmeden halkımızı ayrıştırıyor. Halkımız Erdoğan’a oy vermeyecek. Birlik için Ekmelddin İhsanoğlu Cumhurbaşkanı seçilecek” dedi.

 

 

Demirçalı, AKP’ye ve onun adayı Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’a halkın oy vermesi için bir neden olmadığını ifade etti. Demirçalı, İmamoğlu halkından Ekmeleddin İhsanoğlu’na oy istedi.
