Comment on UK parliamentarians urge government to use full potential of vaping as a smoking cessation tool by Robert Harvey

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 18:48:00 +0000

unless you are an avid vaper who keeps up with news items through social media and such you are unlikely to know the many good reports regarding e-cigarettes that have come up lately, all that most people see is the negative (fake) news that appears in tabloids. many other vapers I know are totally unaware of the UK governments stance on vaping, the stoptober advert was a small start but it was far too easy to miss. if the UK government really wants to push smokers to use e-cigarettes they need to do a lot of more proactive measures to make it happen. now is not the time to be slack, UK government needs to do a lot more to ensure the messages they are sending regarding e-cigarettes are getting through to not only smokers but also to non-smoking/vaping public and how vapers should not be treated by others as if they are smokers especially regarding completely unnecessary bans on vaping in public areas and workplaces that send the totally wrong message to everyone.



Comment on Water Control Board issues conditional approval of Atlantic Coast Pipeline permit by Chris Graham

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 00:06:00 +0000

Chesapeake Bay Foundation Virginia Assistant Director Peggy Sanner released the following statement: “We are pleased that the Water Control Board refused to allow the pipeline project to proceed until threats from pollution are more thoroughly examined. This was the right decision. Thanks to the Board for its careful consideration of this vital matter.” “Building the pipeline without this information would disturb waterways across Virginia and increase pollution to local rivers, streams, and the Chesapeake Bay. We will continue working to make sure the pipeline is held to the strictest environmental standards possible.”



Comment on Water Control Board issues conditional approval of Atlantic Coast Pipeline permit by Chris Graham

Statement from Peter Anderson, Virginia Program Manager of Appalachian Voices: “We are somewhat encouraged by the depth and scope of the board’s discussion about several critical issues today and their apparent recognition of the thousands of citizen voices they’ve heard from over the years, but we are disappointed they did not deny this deficient certification and remand it back to the Department of Environmental Quality for a thorough analysis. “We are also very disappointed the board rejected a formal petition it received yesterday to reconsider its approval of the equally deficient Mountain Valley Pipeline last week. “We applaud the efforts of several board members who expressed concern that the draft ACP certification would not provide reasonable assurance, as required by law, that water quality would be protected. We particularly commend members Roberta Kellam, Nissa Dean and Robert Wayland who cast the three dissenting votes. “We are confident the record demonstrates construction of the pipelines would violate the law. On Friday, we filed a legal challenge to the Mountain Valley Pipeline, and we are considering all options for this project as well. If either pipeline company breaks ground, citizens along the routes are prepared to watchdog every action, along every mile, every day of construction and afterwards, and compel agencies to act when violations inevitably occur.”

Comment on Dinner Diva: Paleo vs. Keto by Margaret Hendricks

Fri, 08 Dec 2017 11:25:00 +0000

I’ve been having a weight issue for my whole life and I’ve tried a lot of different diets. But, I’ve realized that somehow I like the Paleo diet the most. I’ve bought a few books so far regarding Paleo diet, and I came across this one on the internet. So I bought this one too. I can say that the one thing that I like the best about this book is that you can find all the information you need about Paleo in one place, in one book, such as: meal plans, hacks for dining out, recipes… Plus, the results are imminent if you follow the instructions in the book. I’ve managed to lose weight in just some weeks and the key is that you can learn how to reduce just the extra fat and not to kill the nutrients and minerals in the body. Highly recommended! http://koreanbeautyproducts.org/a-secret-book-for-losing-weight-is-available-in-online/



Comment on Virginia grows, despite defeat at WVU by Rob Wagner

Fri, 08 Dec 2017 03:33:00 +0000

Yeah he looked very outmanned. I’ll be interested to see what Bennett does with him. He really looks like a situational point guard who’s strongest attribute is he’s 6’6”



Comment on Virginia grows, despite defeat at WVU by Chris Graham

I'm afraid that athleticism may be an issue with him. He really couldn't be used to bring the ball up the court against WVU, and I remember the same being the case against VCU, when Guy and Johnson were used a lot to get the ball past halfcourt against the press. Remember that he had double hip surgery in high school, and I think it's safe to assume that this is a logical reason he is somewhat limited athletically. I never saw him play in high school, so I have no frame of reference for what he was like before the surgery. But it's hard not to notice that he basically shoots a '50s-style set shot from the perimeter, and just can't get separation against press defense when he's handling the ball. I thought last year that it wouldn't be fair to judge him in terms of athletic ability since he was just coming off that surgery, but we're in year two now, and whatever he did in the spring, summer and fall to improve physically hasn't resulted in much of a difference. I didn't live-blog Tuesday's game at WVU, but if I had, you would've seen me say about a minute in that Jerome wouldn't be getting many minutes, because he was a liability against the WVU pressure. I think he ended up with 21 minutes, and though he only had four turnovers, it seemed to be me that he got blown up by defenders on his handle several additional times.

Question for you Chris. What is up with Jerome? He really melted down at the end of a game that was hanging in the balance. Aside from whining every foul that’s ever called on him, is he just that slow and unathletic?
