Problems, what problems? The only problem is that a DPH estimated 130,000+ people, most of whom do not have the space or ability to grow their own nor have a reliable black-market source (a person with a recommendation and who is carrying it is immune from prosecution) are being $h!t upon by bureaucrats who are functionally illiterate. The law clearly commanded DPH to have at least one 'dispensary' in each county already be registered by the end of last year and would have produce for sale months ago. The law clearly commanded the process of granting or denying a registration was to take 90 days from the DPH's receipt of a complete application and that process was to be fully developed within 120 days following January 1, 2013. ...(full comment)

Let us make this point, there never was a Palestine land. Read your history, no Arab country wanted the Palestinians in their countries. Israel should move the borders to the land they had at the end of the 67 war. With the exception of the Sinai peninsula since they made a lasting peace with Egypt. ...(full comment)

Letter: Focus on Israel

show me a project for anything by the government that has come in close to the price tag stated. If state taxpayers had to pay for the big dig would you be happy? I am not happy the feds pick up the overrun of $$. That is something the state or the city it is put in picks up. Look at the bridges in San Fran, they might have to be redone. Who is going to pay for that, the builder who used bad bolts or the bosses of the inspector ( who said there is a problem) or the taxpayer? Maybe the safest thing is to not use the bridges and make people drive around. I remember driving though Harrisburg, PA and thinking how many bridges do they need. Most of them were no longer used as they were not safe. ...(full comment)

Editorial: The slow pace to high-speed rail

Only the U.S., China and maybe Russia ( I cannot remember how many warheads they retained after the breakup of the USSR and how many we purchased to destroy),possess the ability to wipe out civilization. More than someone trying to do that they will probably do something else. If one wants to destroy the U.S. or north America, they will more than likely get a device approx. 70,000 feet + over the middle of the U.S. They could use a weather balloon, plane or a ICBM. Detonate the device sending out an enormous EMP knocking out at least 85% of the electrical grid if not all that has not been protected. That would be devastating all communication would go out anything flying would drop like a fly. Think of it like the original "Day the Earth Stood Still". In all the exercises I participated in if you can get down to the Blue Ridge mountains you have a very good chance at survival due to the normal wind patterns. ...(full comment)

Hynes/My Turn: Terror unleashed

Vermont Yankee will NOT eliminate emergency planning of all types. No matter the activity - decommissioning or just "babysitting" used fuel in Dry Casks, they will be prepared for fires, personnel injuries from the tear-down work, and radiation events. The article is right in saying the EPZ (for radiation events) will SHRINK - not disappear. It can shrink because the hazard shrinks and the used fuel undergoes radioactive decay. When atoms decay they then have no more to give out, so the total amount of radiation source decreases with time. Opponents will say that a great injustice is proposed, but their fear in not supported by the evidence. ...(full comment)

Vt. Yankee petition to eliminate 10-mile emergency zone moves forward

There are half a dozen companies with Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR) devices racing to the marketplace. If the Solar Hydrogen Trends claims are true, they have the best system to date because their reactor produces hydrogen gas rather than heat. We can easily use hydrogen gas to power cars, trucks, trains, ships, aircraft, and spacecraft with existing, well proven off the shelf technology. I have my fingers crossed and hope this development is authentic. It would shrink the switchover time required to replace fossil fuels with LENR from many decades to just a few years. ...(full comment)

Finally, we found a man here in the United States who understands that the hydrogen reactor "Symphony 7A" is an existing device, which works in contrary to many laws of physics and produces 208,000 liters per hour of pure hydrogen. If someone has any doubts, please invite any reputable company to conduct your own tests. President of Solar Hydrogen Trends Inc. ...(full comment)

As I understand it, the article was minimum sentencing for anyone caught with the drug. Not everyone who uses a drug is selling it, and jail isn't always the best approach to intervention: in fact it guarantees that with a criminal record, efforts at recovery will be severely hampered. ...(full comment)
