FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Sightlines Institute:In his continuing bid to earn his country the title of most corrupt petro-state, Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau just committed his government—or, rather, all of the country’s citizens—to a Can$4.5 billion bailout for the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project.Trudeau’s government has agreed to buy the existing Trans Mountain Pipeline, along with associated assets, from the current owner, a subsidiary of Houston-based Kinder Morgan, Inc. And despite fierce opposition from the provincial government of British Columbia, First Nations groups, local municipalities, environmental activists, government watchdogs, and any sensible person concerned about the integrity of the Salish Sea, Trudeau plans to move forward with building a second pipeline that would nearly triple flows of heavy tar sands oil to the BC coast.The big winner in all this is Houston’s richest billionaire, Richard Kinder—the executive chairman of Kinder Morgan, a multinational pipeline giant that rose from the ashes of Enron and succeeded in playing the Canadian government like a fiddle throughout the years-long Trans Mountain saga.Canadian government bails out Houston billionaire On the blogs: billionaire Houston oilman is the winner in Canada’s rescue of Trans Mountain pipeline project
It’s important to note that while many people consider cicadas a nuisance, they play an important role in the ecosystem. They don’t bite or sting and they feed only on tree sap. They do have the potential to damage newly planted fruit, ornamental and hardwood trees because female cicadas lay their eggs on small branches and twigs, causing them to snap. Established trees should fair just fine during the weeks the six-legged, bug-eyed creatures call them home. Photo from Getty Images Though they’ve spent the last 17 years maturing underground, Brood IX cicadas live only 4-6 weeks above ground. Their purpose is to mate—that loud, buzzing sound you hear is produced by adult males to attract females. Residents of southwestern Virginia and beyond will soon begin to hear the buzz of cicada wings as the insects known as Brood IX begin emerging from the ground in early May to mate. This brood of periodical cicadas have spent the past 17 years underground, feeding on the nutrients from wooded plants in the soil. While most people are familiar with annual cicadas that make an appearance every year near the end of summer, the 17-year Brood IX arrives in tremendous numbers, swarming trees and dive-bombing people as they mind their own business outside. Dogs love them– they make a delicious, crunchy snack. In order for the insects to emerge, soil temperatures about 6-10 inches below the ground need to reach approximately 65 degrees. When that happens, the bugs will arrive in parts of North Carolina, Southwest Virginia and West Virginia.

At the time of this writing, the Indiana Pacers were challenging the Cleveland Cavaliers for the lead in their NBA division. Not only are they challenging the Cavaliers, but they are forth overall in the Eastern Division. This has to be very pleasing to the Pacer’s front office because they did not cave in to Paul George’s demands last season and they let the mal-content go.The Pacers are using the talents of Victor Oladipo, Myles Turner, Lance Stephenson, and Domantas Sabonis to lead their team. The Pacers were 41-30 with 11 regular season games left. They are coached by Nate McMillan.It has been a while since the Pacers have played this type of basketball. As I said earlier, IU’s Victor Oladipo is part of their 4-man core, and his scoring and enthusiasm have to be a big reason for the Pacer’s success.
Press Association The 31-year-old Republic of Ireland international – who had been the subject of a bid from Aston Villa, driven by former Canaries boss Paul Lambert – submitted a transfer request on Tuesday, but that was swiftly refused. A statement on club website canaries.co.uk on Tuesday evening read: “City can confirm Irish international midfielder Wes Hoolahan has today submitted a transfer request which has been rejected. Norwich have turned down a transfer request from midfielder Wes Hoolahan. “The board of Norwich City has stated clearly no senior players will be sold against the club’s wishes and Hoolahan, 31, is contracted to the club until June 2015. “The club will make no further comment at this time.” Norwich’s board rejected the offer from Villa outright and refused to countenance the idea of Hoolahan leaving Carrow Road in the January transfer window. Canaries boss Chris Hughton last week also stressed his desire to keep the seven-cap midfielder on board, insisting he was instead focused on bringing in reinforcements rather than seeing players leave. When asked if Hoolahan could be sold this month, Hughton said: “At the moment our concentration is on can we add to the squad? Can we improve the squad? Not on letting players go out. “We’ve had a few injuries, especially in midfield, and then Michael Turner will be out for a while as well. “We are trying as hard as we can (to sign players), the same as everybody else, but January is a notoriously bad time to bring in players. “But they also have to be right for the club.”
