across the us, a republican push to criminalise protest in time of donald trump

Bismarck, ND: About an hour after some 200 police officers cleared the last demonstrators against the Dakota Access Pipeline from their sprawling encampment on the North Dakota prairie last week, Governor Doug Burgum signed into law four bills aimed at making it easier to control such protests.With a few strokes of a pen, he placed the state in the vanguard of an emerging backlash by conservative forces against political and social advocates who see demonstrations -- however unruly -- as free speech protected by the Constitution.Garfield: he, she or other?Video duration01:36Previous slideNext slideVideo duration01:11US Army refuses North Dakota pipeline ...US Army refuses North Dakota pipeline permitOpponents of a controversial oil pipeline through North Dakota celebrate after the US Army

presstv-native americans rally against dakota pipeline

Native Americans and their supporters have staged a rally in Washington, DC to denounce the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline that cuts through tribal lands. On Friday, the protesters marched towards the White House, chanting slogans such as “water is life”. Native Americans said the pipeline desecrates tribal lands and poses a threat to environment.Led by the Standing Rock Sioux, more than 100 Native American tribes have warned that the four-state pipeline would destroy their sacred sites and contaminate their water resources.In February, the Army Corps said it would allow the final 1.5 miles of the more than 1170-mile (1,885-km) pipeline to go under the Missouri River north of a drinking water reservation used by Native Americans. The Dakota Access Pipeline will transfer crude oil fro

disability benefits being confiscated from 'protected acounts' | business

The ostensible shield of so-called protected bank accounts, which is supposed to prevent the confiscation of certain deposits for debt purposes, is full of holes and does not protect families in need, as it should. Kathimerini has learned that complaints have been made to the Ombudsman regarding a series of state agencies which have raided a number of these supposedly protected accounts.In one case, a freelance workers’ fund (OAEE) pensioner was ordered to return a benefit he had received in the past. The law allows for payments to be made in installments of up to 25 percent of his pension – meaning that if his pension is too low for the remaining 75 percent to cover his needs, the installment can be below 25 percent. However, OAEE has ordered banks to withhold the full 25 percent in all s

presstv-us judge refuses to block dakota pipeline

A US judge has rejected a legal challenge by Native American tribes and environmental activists to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline, after President Donald Trump ordered the controversial project to continue.Judge James Boasberg of the US District Court for the District of Columbia rejected the tribes' request for an injunction to halt the go-ahead last month by the Army Corps of Engineers for the last link of the pipeline in North Dakota.In February, the Army Corps said it would allow the final 1.5 miles of the more than 1170-mile (1,885-km) pipeline to go under the Missouri River north of a drinking water reservation used by Native Americans.Led by the Standing Rock Sioux, more than 100 Native American tribes have warned that the planned path would destroy their sacred sites and contamina

azeri gas pipeline to start pumping gas by 2020 | news

The Southern Gas Corridor will start pumping gas from the Caspian Sea to Europe by 2020, its backers said on Thursday, despite the risk of delays to this option for reducing dependence on Russia.Politicians and ministers meeting in Baku backed the $40 billion, 3,500-kilometer chain of pipelines, a step toward curbing Russia’s one-third share of Europe’s natural gas market.The Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) is the project’s end piece, joining up with the Trans Anatolian Pipeline at the Turkish border, then crossing Greece and Albania to reach Italy. But the slow pace of work in Italy’s Puglia region and growing concern over Azerbaijan’s ability to honor its supply commitments – it faces domestic shortfalls – have knocked confidence in the project.[Reuters]

presstv-judge spurns plea to stop oil flow in dakota

A US federal judge has rejected a request by a Native American tribe for an emergency order to prevent the flow of oil in the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline project, arguing that such a move would not serve the public interest.US District Judge James Boasberg made the decision on Tuesday, denying the request filed by the American Indian Cheyenne River Sioux tribe, saying, "The court acknowledges that the tribe is likely to suffer irreparable harm to its members’ religious exercise if oil is introduced into the pipeline, but Dakota Access would also be substantially harmed by an injunction, given the financial and logistical injuries that would ensue." The judge also noted that any ruling to allow the tribe's request for an injunction preventing oil from flowing through the pipeline w

less pollution in new jersey streams, but more salt

A new federal study shows less pollution in most New Jersey streams, but salt levels rising in some places.
The study by the U.S. Geological Survey found that levels of two key pollutants, nitrogen and phosphorus, either declined or stayed about the same over the last four decades in most of the 28 streams surveyed. But it also found salt levels rose, probably due to the increasing use of road salt during the winter that washes into waterways.The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection commissioned the federal agency to study long-term trends. The findings were consistent with other studies done in the Northeastern U.S.Bob Martin, department commissioner, said the study was the largest ever done on nutrient trends in the state's streams. Contributing to the decline in pollutant

native americans march on white house over dakota pipeline

Native American groups staged a march to the White House Friday against the construction of a controversial oil pipeline which they fear could lead to the desecration of tribal lands. Chanting "water is life," and shouting out tribal calls, a circle of dancers beat on drums during the protest joined by as many as 600 people opposed to the Dakota Access Pipeline, part of which runs through lands inhabited by the indigenous groups.Demonstrators of all ages marched through the capital before gathering outside the White House, many wearing traditional dress and feathered headdresses and draped in colorful printed blankets."The government is violating our public right to clean water," Sarah Jumping Eagle, 44, a member of the Oglala Lakota tribe, told AFP.Protestors against US President Donald J

internet gambling again helps atlantic city casinos

Once again, internet gambling has made the difference between an up month and a down one for Atlantic City casinos.
Figures released Monday by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement show the seven casinos won $205.3 million from gamblers in February. That's an increase of 0.3 percent from February 2016.But without the extra money won from online gamblers, the casinos would have posted a decrease of nearly 2 percent.Resorts Digital (up 131 percent compared with a year ago) and the Golden Nugget (up 66 percent) had particularly good months online.Rush Street Interactive runs one of the Golden Nugget's sites, playsugarhouse.com , which has been growing its revenue by about 25 percent a month since launching last September."Online gaming represents a growth vehicle for the gaming indu

emirates plans flight despite pols' opposition | business

Emirates says it plans to operate its flight from New Jersey to Greece as planned despite opposition from 25 members of the New York and New Jersey congressional delegation.They asked Republican President Donald Trump on Tuesday to stop the Dubai-based airline from beginning a roundtrip flight between Newark and Athens this month. They claim Emirates and other airlines have an unfair advantage over American air carriers because they receive state subsidies.The group wants Trump to delay the scheduled Sunday commencement of the flight until his administration can negotiate a resolution with the airlines.Some consumer advocates disagree and say the competition would lead to lower fares generally.In a statement Wednesday, Emirates said it has full approval and Sunday's flight is scheduled to

josh mccrone tipped to earn dragons no.7 jersey

Josh McCrone is set to win the race for the Dragons No.7 jersey, but it's not all bad news for youngster Jai Field.McCrone is tipped to partner Gareth Widdop in the halves for St George Illawarra's opening clash against Penrith on Saturday, pipping Field for the coveted position. However, Field could yet play an integral role against the Panthers, the rookie likely to make his NRL debut from the bench.
In the frame: Josh McCrone of the Dragons has experience on his side. Dragons coach Paul McGregor has had to find a new halfback after Benji Marshall's move to the Broncos. The call is a crucial one given the Red V's spluttering attack last season, with McGregor and Widdop attempting to prove their worth before their contracts expire.Field is the fastest man in the Dragons squad and is con

11 dutch listed firms vulnerable to predators, says finance minister

Photo: DutchNews.nlEleven of the 25 top Amsterdam bourse-listed companies are effectively for sale as they are so poorly protected from takeovers by non-Dutch companies, finance minister Jeroen Dijsselbloem warned during a Labour PvdA party campaign press conference on Tuesday.Dijsselbloem used the recent failed attempts to acquire PostNL and Anglo-Dutch foods to detergents group Unilever by foreign companies as  cases in point, the Financieele Dagblad said on Wednesday.Large Dutch companies frequently have big cash reserves, but put little effort into investment and growth. Therefore they are attractive prey for predators, the minister warned. He said he was ‘very concerned’, adding that 43% of all 95 listed companies in the Netherlands are insufficiently protected against foreign takeove

invasive and native marsh grasses may provide similar benefits to protected wetl

An invasive species of marsh grass that spreads, kudzu-like, throughout North American wetlands, may provide similar benefits to protected wetlands as native marsh grasses. According to new research from North Carolina State University, the invasive marsh grass's effects on carbon storage, erosion prevention and plant diversity in protected wetlands are neutral. The findings could impact management strategies aimed at eradicating the invasive grass.Phragmites australis, known as the common reed, is an invasive marsh grass that can spread at rates up to 15 feet per year. It thrives throughout North American wetlands, and studies have demonstrated that its densely packed growth pattern chokes out native marsh plants, thereby reducing plant diversity and habitat used by some threatened and en

tim cook affirms apple’s commitment to pro users in annual shareholder meeting –

Apple hosted its annual shareholder meeting today, and Zac Hall of 9to5Mac has the scoop on Tim Cook's remarks.Besides mentioning that this would be the last shareholder meeting at Town Hall because Apple Park will open soon, Cook showed shareholders an unreleased AirPods promo video and called the new product "quite the cultural phenomenon."Perhaps the most interesting tidbit from the meeting had to do with Apple's efforts in the pro market:
Cook also hinted at Apple’s product pipeline by promising Apple will “do more in the pro area.” Cook called out the creative field as especially important to Apple while pushing back against the notion that Apple is too consumer focused now. “Don’t think that something we’ve done or something we’re doing that isn’t visible yet is a signal that our p

thursday's campaign round-up, 3.16.17 | msnbc

Today’s installment of campaign-related news items from across the country.* At a rally in Tennessee last night, Donald Trump told supporters, The law and the Constitution give the president the power to suspend immigration when he deems – or she, or she. Fortunately, it will not be Hillary she.” His crowd responded, once again, by chanting, “Lock her up.”* Still nervous about the upcoming congressional special election in Georgia, the Congressional Leadership Fund, a super PAC backed by House Republican leaders, has launched its second attack ad targeting Jon Ossoff (D). Like the first, the commercial goes after Ossoff for goofing around with his friends while in college.* In New Jersey, home to one of the two gubernatorial races held this year, the latest Quinnipiac poll shows former Amb
