This action by a few elected officials is UNACCEPTABLE!! This will no doubt endanger our community, our children, and the area we call home. Uranium is a poison and mining it is an improper and dangerous use of our water and natural resources!! Uranium should be left in the ground! We cannot regulate it and to think that we have power over nature is arrogant and dangerous. I am asking you to please Send Comments and join many other Dine\’ people in saying NO AND TO STOP NEW URANIUM CONTAMINATION at the Special RDC meeting next Monday morning at Chilchinbeto Chapter.

Since 2006, between my two foundations and my own personal finances, over $3 million dollars have been contributed to various causes.
It is a shame that “News” outlets chose to report on a fraction of this without checking their facts and telling the whole story. I will continue to support the various causes that I believe in as much as I can. And I hope that these outlets will do their part to give a platform to these causes, instead of sharing information that’s incomplete, inaccurate, or misleading.

The carriage would have been filled with lots of lovely pine smells. Great way to mask out the normally damp coat / sweaty / smoky Underground odours of the day. Some commuters may have left their journey with pine needles on their hats and coats, but that\’s a small price to pay for some great festive spirit.
Even with the image enlarged I can\’t work out which line this is. Maybe someone would like to hazard a guess.
Thanks to Georges P for bringing this to my attention who originally saw this on Vintage everyday.

The bubonic plague season arrived in Madagascar earlier than usual in 2013, and with it an apparently greater prevalence of a more deadly strain of the disease.
Between September and December the health ministry reported 42 known deaths and 84 cases from the illness in four of the country’s 112 districts. The cases have been recorded at various geographical locations: Mandritsara in the north, Soanierana Ivongo in the northwest, Ikongo in the southwest, and Tsiroanomandidy in the central highlands.
