    In a New York Times report, an anonymous official explained the Obama administration's decision to delay yet again a decision on the Keystone pipeline. Why did this official have to remain anonymous? It's a way to dodge accountability for decisions or explanations that don’t pan out or that, as in the case of the pipeline decision delay, are laughable in the first place. Steven Brill, Reuters.

    If there are any questions surrounding who the father of your child is, then everyone involved will need to know the facts as soon as possible. Not knowing can cause stress, anxiety and conflict, so the sooner you find out the sooner you can formulate the best plan for everyone. Thankfully it is now easier than ever to get DNA and paternity tests completed, and you can even get them done from the comfort of your own home. This reduces the stress involved with getting these tests completed, and it also makes them discrete too, which is helpful with such a delicate matter.   Once you order…

    UK retail sales have slowed in recent times, as households look to tighten their belts in the face of the rising cost of living. This is hardly helped by the fact that disposable income is unlikely to rise in the UK until 2015, which means that consumers need to keep a close eye on their existing levels of expenditure. This does not mean that you are unable to enjoy life or plan fun, recreational events, however, as careful budgeting and considered planning can help to reduce costs without compromising on your short-term goals.

  • State experts warn: Proposed “Chemicals in Commerce Act” would wipe out public health progress.

    According to state advocates, chemical industry interests are reaching deep into their well-documented bag of tricks with the draft “Chemicals In Commerce Act” released by Rep. John Shimkus (R-IL) this week. State experts see the draft as a vehicle for more secrets, more safety data loopholes, and faster introduction of untested chemicals—all disguised as “reform” of a badly outdated 1976 Toxic Substances Control Act. Of great concern are the measures to undermine and block state action. As the bill is designed, once EPA takes action of any kind, it would effectively hamstring and…

    Thank goodness for states. This year, at least 33 states—more than half the nation—will step up as defenders of public health.

Here's the bull: Toys, clothes, bedding, baby shampoo—all can contain chemicals toxic to the brain and body. We've known for years that the federal law meant to protect us (the 1976 Toxic Substances Control Act) is outdated, allowing untested chemicals and known carcinogens, hormone disruptors, heavy metals and other toxics into the…

    The nation's law that is supposed to protect us from harmful chemicals--the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA)--turns 37 years old this week. A lot has changed since the law's passage in 1976. Bell bottoms and leisure suits no longer hang in our closets, disco is no longer a staple on the radio, and gas no longer contains lead. What's one thing that hasn't changed? TSCA. And that's not good.It hasn't been updated to deal with new chemicals, and it isn't even strong enough to ban chemicals we've long know are harmful, like asbestos. Guess what else debuted in 1976? The first Apple computer.

    As promised, here's an article examining whether sugar maples, and maple syrup production, are affected by climate change.

At that point, any syrup made would have a very poor taste. Enjoy the spring.

    You make your shopping list. Maybe you’re expecting a new baby, so you’ll need a carseat for sure. Kids grow fast and you need clothes and footwear. And rather than serve meals on boring grown-up plates, what could me more fun than tableware made just for kids with their favorite characters on them? And every child should have a lovey – a soft toy they can sleep with and carry everywhere. Oh – and don’t forget all of the toy cars and dolls kids can’t seem to do without.

    I just love eggs. They are a cheap, delicious superfood that nourishes my family’s body and soul.

This means there is often a surplus of hard-boiled eggs around. That’s when I like to make deviled eggs.  My recipe for deviled eggs uses healthy pasture-raised eggs, which are far better for your health and the environment than regular industrially produced , or even organic eggs.

We also have a long way to go before we can be satisfied with our progress. As I wrote a couple of weeks ago, some of the problems that precipitated the need for the first Earth Day have been solved.
