But more crucially did all know how the EPA due to staff shortfalls expertise shortfalls? and funding shortfalls has delegated its regulatory authority over many of its federal statutory programs to the States also underfunded and understaffed? but this delegation largely hidden by EPA and MSM! So drink up that expensive bottled water even as public water systems die on the vine! Comment by William R.

Cumming 3 January 22, 2016 @ 8:14 am BTW I really resent the STATE of MICHIGAN calling its financial managers EMERGENCY MANAGERS. Comment by William R. Cumming 4 January 22, 2016 @ 8:18 am Since January 20th, 1981 and the election of President Ronald Reagan FAKE REGULATION is now the real truth behind federal regulation with many regulations non-enforced due to staff and funding shortages.

THIS IS NOT ACCIDENTAL but IMO DECEPTIVE GOVERNANCE. It remains to be seen if this continues beceRLICH WERE ARE YOUR GHOSTS? Comment by William R.

Cumming 5 January 22, 2016 @ 8:23 am Wiki extract: Rachel Louise Carson (May 27, 1907 April 14, 1964) was an American marine biologist and conservationist whose book Silent Spring and other writings are credited with advancing the global environmental movement. Carson began her career as an aquatic biologist in the U.S. Bureau of Fisheries, and became a full-time nature writer in the 1950s.

Her widely praised 1951 bestseller The Sea Around Us won her a U.S. National Book Award, recognition as a gifted writer, and financial security. Her next book, The Edge of the Sea, and the reissued version of her first book, Under the Sea Wind, were also bestsellers.

This sea trilogy explores the whole of ocean life from the shores to the depths. Late in the 1950s, Carson turned her attention to conservation, especially some environmental problems that she believed were caused by synthetic pesticides. The result was the book Silent Spring (1962), which brought environmental concerns to an unprecedented share of the American people.

Although Silent Spring was met with fierce opposition by chemical companies, it spurred a reversal in national pesticide policy, which led to a nationwide ban on DDT and other pesticides, and it inspired a grassroots environmental movement that led to the creation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Carson was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by Jimmy Carter.

Comment by William R. Cumming 6 January 22, 2016 @ 8:31 am Disclosure: As to my political beliefs I voted in 1980 for Barry Commoner who made the ballot in ?Virginia! Wiki extract: Barry Commoner (May 28, 1917 September 30, 2012) was an American biologist, college professor, and politician.

He was a leading ecologist and among the founders of the modern environmental movement. He ran for president of the United States in the 1980 U.S. presidential election on the Citizens Party ticket.

He served as editor of Science Illustrated magazine. Comment by William R. Cumming 7 January 22, 2016 @ 8:35 am Wiki Extract: Paul Ralph Ehrlich (born May 29, 1932) is an American biologist, best known for his warnings about the consequences of population growth and limited resources.

He is the Bing Professor of Population Studies in the department of Biological Sciences at Stanford University and president of Stanford s Center for Conservation Biology. Ehrlich became well known for his controversial 1968 book The Population Bomb, which asserted that the world s human population would soon increase to the point where mass starvation ensued. Among the measures he suggested in that book was population control, to be used in his opinion if voluntary methods were to fail.

Ehrlich has been criticized for his views; for example, Ronald Bailey called Ehrlich an irrepressible doomster. On the other hand, Carl Haub observed that Ehrlich s warnings had encouraged countries to take action to avert disaster. Ehrlich has acknowledged that some of what he had written had not come about, but has restated his view that overpopulation remains a major problem!

Comment by William R. Cumming 8 January 22, 2016 @ 8:59 am Wiki Extract: The Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) is the principal federal law in the United States intended to ensure safe drinking water for the public. Pursuant to the act, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is required to set standards for drinking water quality and oversee all states, localities, and water suppliers who implement these standards.

SDWA applies to every public water system (PWS) in the United States. There are currently more than 160,000 public water systems providing water to almost all Americans at some time in their lives. The Act does not cover private wells.

The SDWA does not apply to bottled water. Bottled water is regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. RSS feed for comments on this post.

Child's touching thank you note for Christmas lights » The …

A touching thank you note has been received by a Wokingham man after a family visited his festive light display. While writing thank you notes for Christmas presents might be seen by some children as a festive chore, for this anonymous family saying thank you to a stranger was important. Adrian Roberts, who created the display inspired by the events of the first Christmas, said that the note was brilliant.

His is not the only home in the cul-de-sac to have festive lights and he said that a neighbour told him they had received a thank you note for their display and he probably would do too. We went out yesterday and when I came back there it was, he told The Wokingham Paper. Who it comes from I have no idea.

The note is fantastic. It made me smile and it makes it all worthwhile. It s brilliant and it s nice to have appreciation.

Adrian Roberts Christmas lights depict events from the first Christmas Mr Roberts display has been a festive fixture for a number of years and friends and neighbours rally round to help and make the light show a spectacular. And his neighbours also create their own light shows, making the cul-de-sac a must-see for families. They even rally round to hold a neighbourly light switch-on in early December, gathering for mince pies and mulled wine before counting down to turning on the lights.

Mr Roberts said that lots of people come to see the displays, driving down the cul-de-sac to admire the shows. Neighbours say that cars are always coming up and occasionally people will walk in because their children want to see the lights, he said. I don t know the exact number of people but I think it s quite a lot.

What s quite interesting is that a friend was in a pub and he heard someone else talking about it. The display features a Nativity scene with specially made figures depicting characters from the Christmas story. I do the display not just because it s a nice decoration.

Every one else has Father Christmas up, but as far as I m concerned Christmas is about the Christmas story, Mr Roberts explained. I have put up the manger scene for several years and some of my neighbours also decorate. Last year I managed to get hold of the angels.

This year I asked friend Bill Crooks to paint the shepherds and wise men so I could have the full Christmas story and display what Christmas is all about. I have had quite a few families with young children visiting and many cars, including the police. The display will be on show in Martins Drive until Twelfth Night: Wednesday, January 6.

Sweet Chiming Christmas Bell Box?

Let s face it, nobody is thinking about burglar alarm faults over Christmas but unfortunately these things have a habit of cropping up when they re least welcome. The good news is you don t have to worry too much as we are here throughout Christmas if you need us. You won t be popular over the festive period if your alarm activates so here are a few useful things to take note of: If your alarm displays anything out of the ordinary or sounds any usual beeps then give us a call.

We can often talk you through re-setting it over the phone and this could potentially avoid false activations later. If you have a key holding service just double check that your details are up to date, especially if you are going away, so that you can be contacted quickly in the event of an activation. If you are going away but don t have a key holding service then it s a good idea to leave a number with a neighbour so that they can contact you if the alarm goes off.

If you could leave a key and the means to re-set the alarm with a trusted neighbour or family member that would be a good idea. If your alarm has a speech dialler fitted you could set it up to let you know when the alarm is activated. If your alarm activates and you can t turn it off with the code or fob then ring us on 01924 371941.

We have engineers on call 24/7 over Christmas and if we can t talk you through the problem over the phone then we can come out to fix it. Your neighbours won t thank you for your alarm going off while people are at home enjoying the festive period. Our shop is also open as usual over Christmas; we re only closed for the bank holidays 25th and 28th December and 1st January.

Therefore, we can also deal with key cutting, locks and safe sales over this time. We do, of course, hope that you won t need us but at least you have the peace of mind to know that we re here if you do. That number again is 01924 371941 .

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. .
