NBA: Warriors' Draymond Green settles assault case before Rio 23.7.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
East Lansing, Mich. • Lawyers say Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green will pay $560 for a noise violation in a deal that gets rid of a misdemeanor assault-and-battery charge in East Lansing, Michigan. David Meyers, an attorney for the city, says the noise violation is not a criminal charge so no guilty plea is required. Green’s attorney, James Heos, said Friday it’s akin to a parking ticket. Green was accused of striking a Michigan State football player in the face on July 10 outside a res...

A court ruling, unless appealed, has removed the final state hurdle for a Utah company planning to build a nuclear power plant near Green River, putting the fate of the $20 billion project in the hands of federal regulators. The Utah Court of Appeals affirmed Thursday an earlier court ruling allowing Blue Castle Holdings’ plan for a nuclear site in Emery County to continue. The unanimous opinion affirms the 7th District Court’s 2013 ruling that the company’s bid would not overly tax the river by...

Meet The Lonely Republicans Who Care About Climate Change 22.7.2016 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
CLEVELAND ― Alex Bozmoski brought a lot of Theodore Roosevelt masks to hand out at the Republican National Convention ― 4,500 cardboard outlines of the 26th president’s mustache and round spectacles, topped with the outline of a slouch hat. Bozmoski’s goal was to “paint the town Teddy” and remind fellow conservatives about the deep roots conservation has in the Republican Party. Roosevelt is often credited with planting the notion as he expanded the national park system and inspired Americans to reflect on the importance of the environment. The 30-year-old Bozmoski is the director of strategy and operations at RepublicEn , a conservative group that bills itself as “energy optimists and climate realists.” Former Rep. Bob Inglis (R-S.C.), who advocated for climate solutions before he was bounced out of office by a tea party primary challenger in 2010, founded the group in 2014. But Bozmoski had a hard time getting the Teddy masks to take off. “Two people asked me if this was Robin Williams from Night At ...

Trees' surprising role in the boreal water cycle quantified 22.7.2016 Environmental News Network
Approximately 25 to 50 percent of a living tree is made up of water, depending on the species and time of year. The water stored in trees has previously been considered just a minor part of the water cycle, but a new study by University of Alaska Fairbanks scientists shows otherwise.Research published this week in Nature Scientific Reports is the first to show that the uptake of snowmelt water by deciduous trees represents a large and previously overlooked aspect of the water balance in boreal watersheds. The study was led by Jessica Young-Robertson, who worked with other scientists from the National Weather Service and UAF's International Arctic Research Center and Geophysical Institute.

Fear And Hopelessness In Cleveland 22.7.2016 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
Be afraid. That was the clear message of the GOP nominating convention this week. Far from Reagan's morning in America, we're now living in night of the Purge . And GOP nominee Donald Trump, giving the longest acceptance speech in history, focused on the need for more "law and order." In his world, dangerous immigrants are waiting around every corner. There are of course real dangers in the world, but are we worried about the right things? Yes and no. We're worried about a very many things these days. Gallup polls show that half of Americans say they are "very" or "somewhat" worried that "you or someone in your family will become a victim of terrorism." But at the same time, Gallup says, 64% of us are worried a "great deal" or "fair amount" about global warming . But if you listened to this week's convention, we should only focus on terrorism, immigration, and home invasions. This general level of fear has seeped into the mainstream. A couple of days ago, a DJ on the popular New York radio station WPLJ ...
