Today's #nyprimary   results could give  +Bernie 2016's insurgent campaign against +Hillary Clinton a boost... or a bust.
On the GOP side, the big question will be HOW big #donaldtrump 's win will pan out to be: Will it be YUUGE or merely massive? The real estate tycoon could sweep the board - polls show he has a shot at taking over 50 percent majority. If he can do that in most congressional districts, he'll get most of New York's delegates, leaving John Kasich and Ted Cruz to pick up crumbs.
Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will win the New York Primary - but by how much?

"Without a solid, solvent middle-class, you can’t sell cars. Americans are used to paying for cars on installment loans. If the middle class is so crippled by prior debt and the disappearance of good-paying jobs that they can’t qualify for car loans, well, the answer is to give them loans anyway, on terms that don’t really pencil out — such as 7-year loans at 0 percent interest for used cars (that will be worth next to nothing long before the loan expires)."

In the latest development in the long saga of Governor Jerry Brown’s rapidly collapsing California Water Fix/Delta Tunnels Plan, the Inspector General will be conducting an investigation of complaint by Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER) detailing how a funding agreement with the California Water Resources Department “is illegally siphoning off funds that are supposed to benefit fish and wildlife to a project that will principally benefit irrigators.”
Things continue to collapse for Jerry Brown's water-stealing, salmon-killing Delta Tunnels project. Now the feds are investigating it for misuse of funds.

FBI, DEA, IRS and CIA officials hope what’s in the leak will strengthen existing cases and give life to new ones against everything from drug lords and corrupt governments to terrorists.
But there are ethical issues. Attorney-client privilege shields those who hired the law firm of Mossack-Fonseca, the Panamanian company whose documents were provided to journalists. Improperly acquired information, no matter how true, can stop an investigation or prosecution. If the Mossack-Fonseca documents about forming shell companies and other sketchy (though legal) arrangements were hacked or otherwise illegally obtained—and one or the other seems almost certain—it could make prosecution very difficult.

Despite legalization in many states, the feds still treat marijuana as if it was as bad as heroin. Thankfully, it looks like that is FINALLY about to change

How do we balance the health of an ecosystem with a healthy economy? Sometimes, it makes sense to build dams; sometimes, as with four salmon-sensitive dams on the Klamath River, it makes more sense to take them down and restore the river to its natural state
To balance a healthy ecosystem with a healthy economy, four salmon-sensitive Klamath River dams will come down to restore the river to its natural state

The recipients this year are Edward Loure, of Tanzania; Leng Ouch, Cambodia; Zuzana Caputova, of Slovakia; Luis Jorge River 2016 Goldman Environmental Prize winners Edward Herrera, of Puerto Rico; Destiny Watford, from the United States; and Máxima Acuña, of Peru.
Goldman Environmental prize (aka the Green Nobel) gives $175k to global activists. Last year Honduran Berta Cáceres was a winner; she was killed last month.

“Clear cutting is rape,” said #merlehaggard . “Several years ago I drove along the coast from Coos Bay to Crescent City and the destruction I saw made me sick to the stomach. I’ve fished in the streams of the North Coast since I first came to Eureka to work in a plywood mill in 1955. The problem is that many of the people who work in the mills aren’t aware of what logging companies like Pacific Lumber are doing.”
Haggard continued, “...These forests support the grandest life on earth; to have no feeling for it is criminal.” #ripMerleHaggard  
Merle Haggard is well-known as a superstar country songwriter. He's less well known for his work to save the redwood forest and salmon of the Pacific NW

The mystery is at last revealed: why do +Bernie 2016, +Hillary Clinton , +DonaldJTrump and +Ted Cruz  score so uniformly low in trust, credibility, likability? Why are there no candidates of real substance, principle, and especially of real charm in this scrim of political basilisks?
Why would any sane candidate run for President? America's problems are unfixable. (This explains why the candidates we DO have such so badly).

Calgary-based TransCanada Corp. found the leak in Keystone I pipeline late Friday, patched it and opened the valves Sunday. The leak was found nine days ago by a farmer (NOT by the pipeline company) near a pump station in Freeman, South Dakota, a rural area.
Nearly 17,000 gallons—400 barrels—of oil had leaked before the pipeline was shut down.
It should come as no surprise that there was a leak in Keystone 1 pipeline, or that it wasn't the pipeline company that found it. Pipelines leak.

Story

Living green in the great Northwest
Introduction
Jeremy Bloom has been living green since before it was cool. And writing about it.

His publication credits range from Playboy to Parenting, and he recently composed content for an exhibit on climate change at the new California Academy of Sciences museum in San Francisco. He’s been a senior editor for a monthly magazine, and written three screenplays (not, as of yet, produced).

He likes to take a hands-on approach to life, so he also has mucked about in cobb, planted organic strawberry beds, created raw-food meals, done green carpentry, milked sheep, served as deputy campaign manager for a congressional race, helped run music festivals, dug into archeological sites in Israel and the arctic, white-water rafted down rivers in Thailand and the Adirondacks, gone skin-diving in the Red Sea, and danced until dawn in an old-growth redwood forest.

He lives in Eugene, Oregon with his wife Lyra and two cats, Navi and Sylvanus.
