    Got this from a email friend today. She says . . . I ALWAYS check the first gallon before pumping more – simply to MATCH the PRICE (advertised) against the ONE gallon pumped into my car. – I “caught” a SHELL station (here in Mesa, Arizona) that had the price 12 cents per gallon HIGHER than the advertised price on the pump AND the sign out front. – I called the local Department of Agriculture (weights and measures division) from my cell phone immediately – waiting for them to show up. They did, some 20 minutes later. The Department taped...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Federal Reserve ramped up its stimulus to the economy on Wednesday, expressing disappointment with the pace of recovery in employment as contentious U.S. budget talks heighten uncertainty about the outlook. The central bank replaced a more modest stimulus program due to expire at year-end with a fresh round of Treasury purchases that will increase its balance sheet. It committed to monthly purchases of $45 billion in Treasuries on top of the $40 billion per month in mortgage-backed bonds it started buying in September. In a surprise move, the Fed also adopted numerical thresholds for policy, a...

    As the old saying goes, there is a reason why elections are not held after April 15th. Election outcomes would be quite different if they were held in April as the fermenting anger would still be fresh within voters. For low to middle income Americans, the consequences of leftist government policies have created absorbitant gas prices that are actually -more painful- than the income tax itself as it is paid weekly and exceeds what many in lower income brackets pay in federal taxes (if they pay at all). You can help to get voters to think about the ramifications of...

    The events in Japan are disastrous and heartbreaking, but they should not be used to stop us from safely utilizing nuclear energy for the benefit of our nation. As a senior member of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology, I am a strong advocate for safe and clean nuclear technology to meet the energy needs of our growing nation. Research and development makes technologies safer and more effective. Now is not the time to abandon nuclear energy, as our allies in Germany are doing. Now is the time to finally make the move to newer, safer nuclear technologies...

    WASHINGTON (AFP) – The US House of Representatives voted Friday to pump another two billion dollars into a program that lets consumers trade in gas-guzzling cars and trucks for more efficient vehicles. Lawmakers voted 316-109 to prime the "cash-for-clunkers" program with monies taken from a giant economic stimulus package approved in early 2009 after the vastly popular effort burned through one billion dollars in its first week. The measure must now clear the US Senate, where its fate is far less clear, amid disputes on whether to require higher fuel efficiency and greater emissions reductions before extending the campaign. The...

  • Self-Cooling Soda Bottles? [thin-film technology may make conventional A/C obsolete]

    Researchers work to shrink technology that harnesses sun's energy to both heat and coolEvery day, the sun bathes the planet in energy--free of charge--yet few systems can take advantage of that source for both heating and cooling. Now, researchers are making progress on a thin-film technology that adheres both solar cells and heat pumps onto surfaces, ultimately turning walls, windows, and maybe even soda bottles into climate control systems. On July 12, 2006, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) researcher Steven Van Dessel and his colleagues will announce their most recent progress--including a computer model to help them simulate the climate within...

    Man has stolen 2,600 gallons from stations in Travis County.A gas thief is literally cleaning up at gas stations in Travis County — pumping fuel from underground tanks while spraying the pavement with a pressure washer to make it look like he belongs there. The man has struck three gas stations in the past 15 months, making off with about 2,600 gallons of fuel, which he pumps into tanks mounted in the bed of a pickup truck and on a double-axle utility trailer, the Travis County Sheriff's office said. Most recently, he drove into Graef's Grocery at U.S. 183 south...

    Plaintiffs say parish violated pump policy Tuesday, October 18, 2005 By Paul Purpura West Bank bureau Jefferson Parish residents are suing Parish President Aaron Broussard and the parish, claiming their east bank homes flooded after drainage pump operators were sent out of town before Hurricane Katrina hit. Broussard and the parish "owed a duty to operate the drainage pumps" and "breached that duty by failing to man and operate" them, according to the lawsuit filed Friday in the 24th Judicial District Court in Gretna. The plaintiffs, who are seeking class-action status, want unspecified damages and want the case to be...
  • Boycott Offshore Oil

    What about simply staging a 30 day boycott of offshore oil? I read a report that said in the first 10 months of 2004, we used 20.4 million bbl/d (barrels per day). So, in a years time let's just say 24 million bbl/d. If we divide that by 12 months, we use 2 million bbl a month. (rough estimation) With 700 million barrels of oil in the reserve, we would hardly put a dent in our reserves, and at the current price of oil ($66.60 per barrel averaged of 4 oil providers on Sept 2 at 730am PST according to...

    Deepening his personal involvement in an industry that has business pending at the Capitol, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger earlier this year helped dietary supplement companies launch a lobbying group. An article in the August 2005 edition of Muscle & Fitness magazine, for which Schwarzenegger serves as executive editor, recounts his attendance at a March 5 meeting at which the lobbying group formed and says the governor remains "a phone call away" from the organization. The meeting took place while legislation was pending that would restrict high school athletes from using some performance-enhancing supplements. The bill still awaits action in the Legislature....

    What's Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger doing in a hot pink dress and matching shoes? A Democratic lobbyist on the losing end of a legal settlement over sales of unauthorized Schwarzenegger bobblehead dolls says he'll roll out a "girlie man" model next month, to satirize Schwarzenegger and try to force a court decision on the celebrity governor's proprietary rights over his evolving political image. "The message is that, Arnold, you ran for office, we can praise you, we can criticize you and we can poke fun at you," said John Edgell. "And if you have a problem with that, sue me." A...

    Proposed site not in danger for at least one year WASHINGTON - Plans to build an underground laboratory in the Homestake mine would not be dashed if the mine's owner, Barrick Gold Corp., decides to shut down the pumps that now are keeping the mine dry, Sen. Tom Daschle, D-S.D., says. ''I think that too much has been made of whether there is pumping or not,'' Daschle said Thursday. Daschle said he would prefer if Barrick Gold did not shut down the pumps next week, as company officials have said they would. But flooding ''is a very slow process,'' Daschle...
