    This month, some 9,000 people will get to work guiding the country toward a cleaner future. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Within weeks, the nation will deploy 9,000 people to begin restoring landscapes, erecting solar panels, and taking other steps to help guide the country toward a cleaner, greener future.

Their swearing-in marks another step forward for the Biden administration’s ambitious climate agenda. The program, which President Joe Biden announced within days of taking office in 2021, is a modern version of...

    The murder of Georgia nursing student Laken Riley has inspired a local pizzeria owner to run for office. Sidney Anne Waters, who owns Mama Sid’s Pizza, is running for a slot on the Athens-Clarke County Commission because of Riley’s death — and the illegal immigrant who’s been arrested in connection with the brutal slaying. “I… all of a sudden… had a reality check… There are a lot of us in Athens that really didn’t know what our government was doing… The day before… qualifying ending, I decided I would go in and put my name on the ticket,” Waters told...

    North Carolina State Senior Owen Lloyd posted the fastest time in the men's 1650 yard Freestyle, earning him the ACC Title, an automatic entry to the National Championships, and a new best time. Moments later, an announcement was made that Lloyd had been disqualified for "interference with another swimmer." The rule(s) at play from the NCAA rulebook: - Rule 2, Section 5, Article 1a: "Any competitor who interferes with another swimmer during a race shall be disqualified from that race, subject to the discretion of the referee..." - Rule 2, Section 5, Article 1b: "A swimmer who changes lanes during...
  • The ‘Resistance,’ Raising Big Money, Upends Liberal Politics

    The New York Times ^ | October 7, 2017 | KENNETH P. VOGEL
    It started as a scrappy grass-roots protest movement against President Trump, but now the so-called resistance is attracting six- and seven-figure checks from major liberal donors, posing an insurgent challenge to some of the left’s most venerable institutions — and the Democratic Party itself. The jockeying between groups, donors and operatives for cash and turf is occurring mostly behind the scenes. But it has grown acrimonious at times, with upstarts complaining they are being boxed out by a liberal establishment that they say enables the sort of Democratic timidity that paved the way for the Trump presidency.[snip]And an advocacy group...

    Florida State University (FSU) filed a lawsuit against the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) on Friday, alleging mismanagement of media rights and imposing excessive exit fees.The lawsuit specifically challenges the ACC’s Grant of Rights provision and associated exit penalties, which total more than $500 million.FSU posits that these conditions, which also require forfeiture of media rights through 2036 for leaving the conference, are restrictive and potentially breach contractual obligations.The university’s decision to pursue legal action follows its exclusion from the College Football Playoffs despite an undefeated season.FSU additionally raises objections to the ACC’s strategy of expanding its membership by adding The...

    The Atlantic Coast Conference has cleared the way for Stanford, California and SMU to join the league next year, two people with direct knowledge of the decision told The Associated Press on Friday, providing a landing spot for two more teams from the disintegrating Pac-12. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because an official announcement was still being prepared. The conference's university presidents and chancellors met Friday morning and voted to extend invitations to the three schools. The additions make the ACC the latest power conference to expand its membership and footprint westward. Starting in August 2024, the league...

    WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump welcomed the NCAA champion Clemson Tigers football team to the White House Monday with a shutdown smorgasbord of fast food offerings he called "great American food," including piles of pizza and fries and more than 300 burgers. “Because of the shutdown, as you know, we have the great Clemson team with us, so we went out and ordered American fast food paid for by me,” the president said in the East Room, standing behind a table loaded with offerings from McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Burger King and Dominos served on silver platters, behind a gilded candelabra.

    It’s been a rough year for the Pittsburgh basketball program. In its second year with Kevin Stallings as head coach, the Panthers have not won a single game in conference play and entered Saturday’s home game against No. 1 Virginia with an 8-21 (0-16 ACC) record. With its first half performance against the Cavaliers, Pitt may have finally hit rock bottom. The Panthers went into the half trailing 30-7. Yes, Pitt scored only seven points in 20 minutes of action.

    North Carolina lawmakers filed a bill on Monday that would pull North Carolina and NC State from the Atlantic Coast Conference if the conference boycotted the state again amid the fallout of House Bill 2. House Bill 728 says that if a college conference boycotts North Carolina, then state schools that are a part of that conference would be prohibited from extending the grant of media rights to that conference. The ACC and NCAA had pulled championship events out of North Carolina until HB2 — known as the “bathroom bill” — was repealed. The bill, which was widely decried as...

    The good news for North Carolina is starting to sound like a broken record, but based on the latest business reports, HB 2 might have been the best thing that happened to the state! Tourism is thriving and the economy is expanding — which is exactly the opposite of what liberals predicted. In a great Washington Times piece today, Bradford Richardson and Valerie Richardson are quick to point out that whatever “boycott” the Left had unleashed on the Tar Heels wasn’t nearly as powerful as they thought it would be. Financial indicators released for 2016, they write, “show that the...

    The ACC officially has a new location for its football championship game. The conference announced Thursday morning that the game will move to Orlando’s Camping World Stadium. The move comes two weeks after the conference, following an NCAA decision, decided to move all of its championships outside of the state of North Carolina because of House Bill 2 (HB2), a state law that requires transgender people to use public bathrooms that match the gender on their birth certificates instead of the gender with which they identify.

    SPARTANBURG, SC (WSPA) – The Atlantic Coast Conderence (ACC) has announced they will be moving championship games out of North Carolina, because of House Bill 2. All 15 university will continue to host ACC Championships at campus sites. Clemson University President James Clements says, “The decision to move the neutral site championships out of North Carolina while HB 2 remains the law was not an easy one but it is consistent with the shared values of inclusion and non-discrimination at all of our institutions.” They say the locations will be announced in the future. The NCAA said on Monday that...

    BOSTON (AP) -- Lawsuits filed Monday against Harvard University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill argue that affirmative action policies should be banned at colleges across the nation. The federal suits allege Harvard and UNC rely on race-based affirmative action policies that impact admissions of high-achieving white and Asian American students. The Harvard lawsuit also contends that the Ivy League university specifically limits the number of Asian Americans it admits each year. The Project on Fair Representation, an Alexandria, Virginia-based legal defense fund, said Monday's filings will be the first in a series of legal challenges against...

    Florida State is the BCS favorite. But if you look at how the ACC is faring so far, it does not look good. ACC results so far: Marshall over Maryland 31-20 North Carolina over Cincy 39-17 Mississippi over Ga Tech 25-17 (it wasn't that close) Arizona over Boston Col. 42-19 UCLA over Virginia Tech 42-12 so the ACC is 1-5 by a total score of 157-107. What I conclude is to bet on Auburn to beat Florida State.

    A US Air Force Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) panel investigating a series of hypoxia-like incidents afflicting pilots flying the Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor has not discovered what is causing the problem, but service officials vow they will find the root cause. "I am convinced there is a root cause," says Maj Gen Charles Lyon, Air Combat Command's (ACC) director of operations. "I want everyone to know--particularly those who operate it and their families--we will not rest until we find that root cause." The USAF is continuing to test the F-22's life-support systems to try to determine what is still causing...

    When it comes to climate change, open-mindedness is the wrong approach. I study the history of climate science, and my research has shown that the think tanks and institutes that deny the reality or severity of climate change, or promote distrust of climate science, do so out of self-interest, ideological conviction or both. In my travels, I have met many, many people who have told me that they are not in denial about climate change; they simply don't know enough to decide. Since the mid-1990s, there has been clear-cut evidence that the climate is changing because of human activities: burning...
