"We've Never Seen the Government Stand Up to the Fossil Fuel Industry": Tim DeChristopher on Our Climate Future 24.10.2016 Truthout - All Articles
Tim DeChristopher. (Photo: Dahr Jamail) Tim DeChristopher is one of the leading climate activists in the US and a thorn in the side of the fossil fuel industry.

Cassady Roberts: Hillary Clinton is leader we can look up to 19.10.2016 Steamboat Pilot
I have spent my post-college life teaching second graders. In my students I see optimism and promise, but I also see the challenges they face both at home and in the world we live. My only hope for them is to grow up feeling empowered to fulfill whatever life they imagine for themselves. When I look at my students, I see the future, and our country’s future needs a strong and qualified leader. We need a leader that my students can look up to. That person is Hillary Clinton. While I am absolutely horrified by the example that is being set by Donald Trump, I know that this election will soon be over and there will be a time for governing. With a President Hillary Clinton, we will have someone in the White House who is dedicated to fighting for the children in my classroom, their families and every American. Her track record, not blustery campaign talk, shows me that she will do exactly that. First, Hillary Clinton has been specifically and unflinchingly focused on improving the lives of women and children ...

Business News Roundup, Oct. 19 19.10.2016 SFGate: Business & Technology
Comcast Corp.’s DreamWorks Animation SKG agreed to pay $50 million to resolve claims it colluded with other animation studios not to hire one another’s workers in California, where allegations of no-poaching pacts have plagued technology companies for years. DreamWorks will cooperate with lawyers for former animators and visual effects employees who are pressing forward with their class-action case against Walt Disney Co. and its Lucasfilm and Pixar units, plaintiffs’ attorneys said in a court filing Monday seeking approval of the accord. Two Sony Pictures units and Blue Sky Studios already have won preliminary approval for settlements totaling $19 million. The antitrust suit against the California-based companies is based on allegations that they conspired to suppress wages through a “gentleman’s agreement” not to solicit each other’s workers. Apple, Google, Inc., Intel Corp. and Adobe Systems Inc. last year paid $415 million to resolve their part in a similar case that was brought against a group ...
