AMERICAblog Gay: AP legal reporter gets law wrong; Obama defender ...
As I noted last night, AP reporter Denise Lavoie interviewed an Obama defender, Robert Raben, and didn't bother mentioning that the guy is a lobbyist, who lobbies the White House itself, who is paid to give advice to lobbyists on this very issue, and who thus has a financial interest in maintaining good relations with the White House. Did it affect his quote in the AP story? We'll never know since AP didn't bother disclosing who he really is. But there's more to the story. The AP reporter, who is AP's legal affairs writer, got the story wrong. Which is pretty bad, since she's supposedly ... market research, surveys and trends
Precedent: The new rules of law and style - The Crime Traveller ...
Whenever I suggest to The Crime Traveller’s Wife that we spend a week at a cottage, her face scrunches up in thinly veiled derision. Mosquitos. Outhouses. Well water. These are the thoughts that dance through her head as I wax poetic about clean country air and getting back to nature. It was therefore a stroke of marital brilliance when I gleefully reported that I had been invited to bring the family up north to Red Leaves in Muskoka as a guest of The Rosseau.  As the first of Marriott’s luxury JW brand in Canada, The Rosseau is what would happen to cottage country if it were designed by Shane Baghai, decorated ... market research, surveys and trends

Terry Engelder on shale gas: The good, the bad and the yield curves
How safe are the shale gas wells that are springing up around parts of the United States? And how well will they pay off for the increasingly large investments that are going into them? Late last month I spoke to Terry Engelder , professor of geosciences at Pennsylvania State University and an expert in shale formations about these rather controversial aspects of shale gas, and more. As with many topics in the energy world, shale gas elicits rather polarised opinions. There are those who say it will neatly reduce emissions and solve energy security problems in one fell swoop. Others believe that some issues around pollution and ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Tax Credit Program Would Help Jumpstart Building in New Jersey
The ongoing slump in the real estate market continues to plague the building materials industry in New Jersey. It was recently reported that pending sales of New Jersey homes dropped by the greatest margin since February 2009 – when the U.S. economy shed more than 726,000 jobs. While this is an alarming statistic for my colleagues with the New Jersey Building Materials Dealers Association (NJBMDA), I was pleased to learn that our state Legislature in Trenton is equally concerned about how this recession is ravaging our state’s building industry.

If, in the midst of sorting receipts and studying the latest changes in the US income tax laws, you suddenly wonder "What is the origin of this annual ritual in the weeks leading up to April 15th?" here are some places you can go for answers. The origin of the income tax on individuals is generally cited as the passage of the 16th Amendment, passed by Congress on July 2, 1909, and ratified February 3, 1913; however, its history actually goes back even further.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
I have a nail in my tire-how long before it goes flat? - Yahoo ...
I noticed a nail in my tire when I got to work today-how long before the tire will start to go flat? By the time I get off today, the place I normally go to for auto repairs is going to be closed-will it be okay until tomorrow? Beats me? Is it leaking there? Put a gob of spit on your finger and apply it around the nail and see if any bubbles are happening. If they are, then it is leaking. If it looks as though the nail is barely in, you could take a gamble and pull it out with your fingers - if it went in say 1/4 inch more than likely you did not pierce it yet. Driving on it further may push the nail in thru so it ...
Bike tire went flat with no reason, what happened? - Yahoo! Answers
I put my bike, which I bought today and rode all day without problems, in the garage for approximately 50 minutes to eat. When I go back outside, the rear tire is COMPLETELY deflated. I don't have a clue what has happened to it. It had fine pressure when I put it away, but when I got it back, it was flat as could be. I have no experience with bikes so any help would be greatly appreciated.
