Feds predict 10 fuel trains could derail per year

trains could derail at ten per yearThe federal government predicts that trains hauling crude oil or ethanol will derail an average of 10 times a year over the next two decades, causing more than $4 billion in damage and possibly killing hundreds of people if an accident happens in a densely populated part of the U.S.

The projection comes from a previously unreported analysis by the Department of Transportation that reviewed the risks of moving vast quantities of both fuels across the nation and through major cities. The study completed last July took on new relevance this week after a train loaded with crude derailed in West Virginia, sparked a spectacular fire and forced the evacuation of hundreds of families.

Small drones are being used for delivery services, precision agriculture and inspection of infrastructure such as power- and pipelines.In the US, by contrast, proposed new rules from the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) for commercial drone use impose stringent safety controls that businesses say will tie their hands at a time when European competitors are tearing ahead.

He talked up the promise of education reform, immigration and policies to boost America’s economy — standard lecture circuit talk for which the former Florida governor often commanded $40,000 a speech.

Still, the part about “a patriotic energy policy” was especially timely, coming amid heated debate over whether Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo should lift the state’s moratorium on the controversial oil and natural gas drilling technique of hydraulic fracturing.

Bill O'ReillyBuenos Aires was neither a “war zone” nor a “combat situation” after Argentina surrendered to Britain in the Falklands War, says one of Bill O’Reilly’s former colleagues at CBS who was with him in the capital at the time.

“It was an ‘expense account zone,’” writes Eric Jon Engberg, a retired CBS correspondent, in a Facebook post. “We -- meaning the American networks -- were all in the same, modern hotel and we never saw any troops, casualties or weapons.”

Malcolm X remembered as civil rights leaders grapple with new protest movement

Malcom X rememberedOn the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Malcolm X, family members and New York leaders commemorated the charismatic and controversial civil rights leader. They did so, however, largely without linking his life and work to recent protests over issues of race and policing.

On Saturday afternoon, at the Malcolm X and Dr Betty Shabazz Memorial and Education Center in Washington Heights, some 300 people crowded into a building near the place where Malcolm X was shot dead in 1965. On the wall of a wide hall, a massive and colorful mural depicted his life through his journeys around the US, on pilgrimage in the Middle East and while speaking in Europe.

One of the names they invoke most often is Wei-Hock Soon, known as Willie, a scientist at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics who claims that variations in the sun’s energy can largely explain recent global warming. He has often appeared on conservative news programs, testified before Congress and in state capitals, and starred at conferences of people who deny the risks of global warming.
