Blumenauer, other PNW leaders head to UN Climate Change Conference PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A number of leaders from the Pacific Northwest are heading to Scotland to participate in the United Nations Climate Change Conference.  U.S. Representative Earl Blumenauer, D-Ore., is attending the event and said he wants to talk about specifics, not “vague promises,” with world leaders when it comes to addressing climate change.  Blumenauer said one of those discussions will focus on legislation that’s being called “carbon border adjustment.” He said it will make it harder for countries to export polluting products.  He spoke to KOIN News Sunday and said he just had a meeting with members of the European trade group and they are already a step ahead on that front. He said it will be important to learn together and move in tandem.  “I have legislation to make it harder for illegally harvested timber land to produce commodities that end up on our grocery shelves,” he said. “We’ll be working to reinforce our initiatives with the infrastructure program… With the energy production credits we’ve led the charge read in congress on alternative transportation on bike and E-bike, on vision zero, reducing the carnage on the highway.”  At climate summit, Inslee says Washington will electrify its public fleet There are several leaders from Washington and Oregon that will be attending the climate conference, including Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., Oregon Gov. Kate Brown and Washington Gov. Jay Inslee. “It helps demonstrate that we are in the game,” Blumenauer said about having so much regional representation.

I was applying for jobs, but I wasn’t getting very far.”  One Sunday afternoon, he applied to seven ads in The Washington Post — and soon had seven job interviews in hand.  “I then realized that working on Capitol Hill for several years was marketable in D.C., but it wasn’t very marketable in mill towns in New Hampshire.”  Littlefield accepted a job at the NTDRA, reporting to the late Phil Friedlander, the association’s then-president, who put him to work as the group’s first government affairs director.  While benefiting from the guidance of several “wonderful mentors,” including Russ McCleery, Littlefield made it his mission to learn as much about the NTDRA’s members as possible.  “When I came in, I thought it was important to go out and meet tire dealers. Every time Congress was in recess, I would make an appointment to go to a retread shop or a commercial dealer or a retail store and talk to the people who were working there about what the important issues were.”  In those days, the classification of scrap tires was a big point of contention. At the time, Littlefield estimates, there were more than 1,200 scrap tire piles scattered throughout the United States.  He led the charge see this site to convince Congress to not list tires as hazardous waste — a major victory for the NTDRA and its members.  “The industry then came together and got state funds to clean up scrap piles. I think the number of scrap piles in the U.S. has gone down to fewer than 60.”  In the early 1980s, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration began imposing onerous fines for “noncompliance” with tire registration laws that were on the books.  “We started seeing fines in high numbers — $20,000 and $40,000 and even $60,000. That’s when we pushed for voluntary tire registration,” which became another win for tire dealers.  Over the years, Littlefield has tracked the rise of mega-retailers and remembers when car manufacturers ramped up their tire programs.

An undated example of a handmade poppy While poppy seeds themselves don’t contain opium, when harvested, it’s possible for them to become coated in the substance or absorb it. The milky latex within each unripe seed is the key ingredient that is then used to create morphine, a widely known painkiller. 8. The poppy as a symbol of remembrance in Canada started with a French woman. Inspired by McCrae’s famous poem, it was a woman named Madame Anna Guerin who persuaded the Great War Veterans Association at the time to adopt the poppy as a symbol of remembrance. The French Poppy Lady herself founded a charity to help rebuild parts of France destroyed by the First World War. She made poppies out of fabric and sold them as a way of raising money for veterans’ needs, and those most impacted by the war. The idea was adopted in Canada on July 6, 1921. People lay poppies on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at the National War Memorial after Remembrance Day ceremonies, in Ottawa on Nov. 11, 2018.

A view of the Hubble Space Telescope in orbit. Late last month, the famous scope suffered a problem with the synchronization of its internal communications, sending all five of its science instruments into a protective "safe mode." The Hubble team has been troubleshooting the issue ever since, and it just notched a big success. "The Hubble team successfully recovered the Advanced Camera for Surveys instrument Nov. 7," NASA officials said in a statement today (Nov. 8). "The instrument has started taking science observations once again." Related: The best Hubble Space Telescope images of all time! The team targeted the ACS first because "it faces the fewest complications should a lost message occur," NASA officials added. The other four Hubble instruments remain in safe mode, though technicians are working to bring them back as well. "Over the past week, the mission team has continued investigating the root cause of the synchronization issues and has seen no additional problems," NASA officials said in today's statement. "The team will continue looking into possible short-term solutions this week and develop estimates for implementation. Once this occurs, the team will discuss returning the other instruments to operational status and resuming their science observations." — Hubble captures a 'Cosmic Reef' in stunning 30th anniversary image   Hubble has overcome a number of challenges since its April 1990 launch .
