    Michelin is targeting the moon and creating a wheel dedicated specifically to this star. As part of NASA’s Artemis project, which aims to send humans to Earth’s natural satellite, the French equipment manufacturer was asked to provide wheels for the lunar rover. A prototype was unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas on January 5-8. Get ready for the Artemis project in 2025 What is special about the wheels that Michelin made is that they have no air in them. In a non-atmospheric environment, such a property would significantly facilitate the vehicle’s logistics, while eliminating the risk of puncture. To build its wheel, Michelin has partnered with Northrop Krumman, an American company specializing in aerospace and defense technologies. Both were selected following NASA’s call for tenders, which began in November 2021. Your Codes Proof By 2025, the Artemis project plans to send a man and a woman to the moon. They will travel in a lunar vehicle or LTV (Lunar terrain vehicle). “This lunar wheel will be able to withstand the extreme...

    Inmates do a deep cleaning in a cell pod to prevent the spread of COVID-19 at the San Diego County Jail on April 24, 2020. Republican state legislators in Kentucky are trying to push through the legislature a bill that would make crowdfunding bail and nonprofit donations to pay bail illegal. Lawmakers stated in House Bill 313, which was introduced on Tuesday: “It shall be unlawful for any person to engage in the business of bail bondsman to operate a charitable bail organization, or to otherwise for compensation or other consideration:  (a) Furnish bail or funds or property to serve as bail; or  (b) Make bonds or enter into undertakings as surety(...)” Rep. John Blanton and Rep. Jason Nemes sponsored the bill, also dubbed Madelynn's Bill, to honor a 17-year-old girl who was hit and killed in a head-on collision, WAVE reported. The driver, Michael Jacob Dewitt, had previously bonded out of jail after securing a $5,000 donation from the nonprofit organization, The Bail Project. Bail Project Midwest regional director Matthew McFarland indicated in an interview with ABC-affiliated WHAS that the organization would have acted...
    OAKLAND — The A’s proposal to build a 35,000-seat ballpark and real estate development along the city’s waterfront cleared one hurdle this week after the city’s planning commission signed off on the environmental impact report, voting to recommend to the city that in the commission’s estimation, the document is in compliance with state law. But more milestones are ahead that will determine whether and when the project gets built. So, what’s next for the proposed project? The City Council will have to certify the environmental impact report itself. The certification is a requirement under the California Environmental Quality Act, which governs how municipalities deal with the impacts to traffic, pollution and air quality, noise and safety from developments like this one.  While there is no date yet set for a vote on that, city and A’s officials have said the City Council could vote on certifying the EIR as early as next month. Also next month, the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission will hold a public hearing on making an amendment to the Bay Plan,...
    A man who unwittingly created an assassin hiring website has revealed how the spoof hitman service helps catch prospective murderers.  Bob Innes, 52, from California, created RentAHitman.com in 2005 as part of a university class project and forgot about the satirical website until three years later, when he checked the site’s analytics while bored.  He discovered the site was attracting 6,000 visitors per month and that the inbox had been inundated with genuine requests for murder - inspiring Bob to set out catching the criminals.   Bob decided to change the format of the parody website to include application forms for 'field agents' to carry out murder plots so that he could collect more personal details of budding killers to pass on to the police.  Criminals have been caught and jailed because of the site, with one Michigan woman sentenced to up to 20 years in prison for trying to hire a contract killer to whack her ex-husband just last week.  Parody website RentAHitman.com pretends to allow users to hire 'field agents' to kill for money  Bob Innes, 52, created RentAHitman.com in 2005 as part...
    One of the selling points for several proposed copper and nickel mines in Minnesota has been that the metal can help power green technology like solar panels, electric vehicles and windmills. But that possibility has always been somewhat hypothetical, or at least hard to quantify for the controversial projects.  PolyMet Mining says metal from its proposed mine near Hoyt Lakes would be a commodity sold on a world market. But while there is high demand for things like EV batteries, there is no guarantee how much, if any, of the product would be used for domestic green technology. Another proposed mine, Twin Metals Minnesota, said in August it was looking into the possibility of supplying an electric vehicle battery manufacturer with its project near Ely. The company also hopes to keep sales generally to the U.S. and allied countries. Yet Twin metals can’t ensure either thing will happen.

    In this article GM TSLA The southwest of England is famed for its dramatic coastline, verdant countryside and fresh seafood. If all goes to plan, another string could be added to the region's bow over the next few years: lithium extraction. In the county of Cornwall, efforts are underway to tap into the area's natural resources and establish an industry which could, one day, produce both renewable energy and establish a local source of lithium. Alongside its use in cell phones, computers, tablets and a host of other gadgets synonymous with modern life, lithium is crucial to electric vehicles and battery storage, two technologies with a big role to play in the planet's shift to a low and zero emission future. Examples of how this nascent sector could progress over the next few years include Geothermal Engineering Ltd, a company based near the Cornish town of Redruth specializing in the development and operation of geothermal projects. Alongside its planned renewable energy operations, GEL is also working on a trial project centered around the extraction of lithium from geothermal...
    SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, ABC7 took a dive into our archives to explore some of the many visits the civil rights activist paid to the Bay Area. From Berkeley to San Francisco and beyond, Dr. King visited the region several times throughout the 1960s.RELATED: Car caravans held in East Bay, virtual events to honor Martin Luther King Jr's legacy"He liked the Bay Area," Dr. Clayborne Carson, Martin Luther King, Jr. Centennial Professor Emeritus at FSI within Stanford University, said.

    Link the Russian-German Nortstream 2 gas pipeline project to the Ukrainian geopolitical file? The German government, which unites the Social Democrats (SPD), the Liberal Democrats (FDP) and the Ecologists (Alliance 90 / The Greens), cannot speak with one voice on this issue.“We should not practice [Nord Stream 2] In the conflict, German Defense Minister Kristin Lambrecht (SPD) announced on RBB radio on Thursday, “Tensions between the West and Russia around Ukraine have intensified over the past few months.” […] Rather than making connections with projects that have nothing to do with this conflict, ”the government member continued, quoting AFP.However, if there is an “increase” in Ukraine, the popular gas pipeline will not be approved for operation, said her colleague in the Foreign Office, Annalena Barbach, on December 12 – according to the same source, shared by Economy and Climate Minister Robert Hebeck from Alliance 90 / Leswerts.

    A new multifamily rental housing development could soon be coming to Antioch. The City Council on Tuesday approved the Wild Horse multifamily housing project’s environmental report, zoning changes and a general plan amendment to allow for developers to build high-density residential on what was previously designated for low density. The applicant, CCP-Contra Costa Investor, plans to develop an 11.72-acre triangular site at the end of Wild Horse Road between Le Conte Circle and Highway 4. Plans call for the construction of 126 units on 10.4 acres or 12.1 units per acre along with about 1.6 acres of open space. In 2019, the applicant had submitted plans for a 47-unit single family housing development. At the time, the council said the lots were too small and didn’t meet the 6,000-square-foot requirement so the developer redesigned it to multifamily units instead. Set on long-vacant land, the current project includes housing that ranges from 1,120 to 1,900 square feet with two to four bedrooms and two-car garages located in 25 buildings with two to eight units each. The proposed project is estimated to...
    Nobody plans on opening a big transit project during a pandemic, but that’s what happened back in December, when Metro Transit unveiled the new Orange Line bus rapid transit (BRT) that runs 20 miles between downtown Minneapolis and Burnsville. Because it travels on the freeway, the Orange Line offers swift service compared to just about any other local transit route, taking you from end to end in only 35 minutes, even during rush hour. For Twin Cities transit, that’s fast! The only catch? It’s a freeway-running line, and so almost all the stops are right next to the massive concrete walls of I-35W, making many of the station areas quite unappealing. But with that tension in mind, I took the Orange Line this week, hoping to find out how the new project looks and feels, and what its potential might be attracting future riders. It turns out that, thanks to a few transit planning details, the Orange Line project is as good as transit running down a freeway can be.

    Dr. Anthony Fauci’s hearing before the Senate Health Committee went further off the rails as he and Senator Roger Marshall (R-KS) sparred over the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) alleged link to the emergence of the coronavirus. Shortly after Fauci’s explosive rematch with Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), Marshall was called upon to speak, and promptly told Fauci “you’ve lost your reputation. The American people don’t trust the words coming out of your mouth.” Fauci countered that Marshall’s comments are “a real distortion of the reality” of his efforts to promote the CDC’s health recommendations, though Marshall reiterated “you are hurting the team right now.” From there, Marshall invoked a Project Veritas report based on leaked emails which push the notion Fauci lied in previous testimony that the NIH never funded gain of function research in partnership with EcoHealth Alliance. Marshall read through the emails as he accused Fauci of breaking the gain of function moratorium with the NIH’s funding grants, and he eventually arrived at three questions: Why did you tell the committee that your agency has never funded gain...
    Sponsored Content With customers moving their attention online, marketers need to do the same. Whether consumers are making purchases online or socializing, marketers are missing opportunities if they aren’t taking advantage of reaching their audience. After his first business at age 20, Darik Alexander realized the importance of marketers dominating the online space. Darik realized early on that in his industry that this idea was not being taught and was virtually nonexistent. Seeing an opportunity in front of him, he immersed himself in digital marketing. He has spent 7 years as an entrepreneur and learned that the most important part to starting his business was finding something that resonates with his customers. “You don’t just start a business. You have to really dive into the specific need your market needs and how you plan to not only service that need, but do it better than anyone else in your field can,” says Darik Alexander. For Darik, that answer was to integrate artificial intelligence with foreign market data. This was the beginning of Market Hackers, Darik’s innovative way to bring...

    Getty Andy Cohen Andy Cohen has some harsh words for the early Real Housewives and their fashion sense. Andy is just saying what everyone was already thinking, the early years of housewives fashion were… not good. “In the early days of Orange County, the fashion was just terrible,” Andy said in an interview with Vanity Fair. “If you look at the first few years of reunions, Orange County, Atlanta and New York, they were basically wearing — I don’t even think what they would wear to a cocktail party. I think it was more what they might wear to a PTA meeting.” Viewers might remember the first-ever Housewives reunion, back in 2006, was held in the backyard of Jeana Keough’s house. Now, the reunions outfits are something fans wait all season to see. “I think people have loved seeing what they wear now,” Andy said. “They were meant to be aspirational and that’s what they are.”The Housewives Appeared as Guest Clients on ‘Project Runway’ With Andy Serving as a Guest Host View this post on Instagram A...
    Q: I cried like a baby when my supervisors at Caltrans told me they were doing the project on Interstate 80 to lower speed limits and close lanes when there was a problem ahead. In theory it works, but I wasn’t sold. The I-80 corridor is such a mess. Signs need to be on 24/7, like metering lights are. That has to be automated, but California isn’t ready to sign off on that yet. The CHP will not enforce speed limit signs. Drivers won’t obey speed limits. Maybe when all cars are self-driving electric and have telematics, then cars can be slowed down by law enforcement with no driver intervention. That will happen about the same time we get those flying cars we were promised back in the ’50s. Jim Richardson, Caltrans (retired) A: A complaint drivers have on I-80 is that high-tech solutions for freeing up traffic are available but not used very often. Caltrans counters that to use them more often could lead more motorists to ignore them. Q: Everything you wrote about I-80 is absolutely correct. The...
    Gene Kelly’s daughter is speaking out amid news that Chris Evans is in talks to step into the legendary actor’s shoes. On Jan. 4, a source told Variety that Evans is poised to play Kelly in a developing film project produced by John Logan. According to the insider, who is close to the project, the untitled movie is based on Evans’ original idea about a 12-year-old boy who works on the MGM lot during the ’50s and finds an imaginary friend in Kelly while working on his newest film. "I don’t have any information about this proposed film, so I can’t really comment," Kerry Novick told Fox News. "It does occur to me, though, that, if they are trying to imagine a kid’s perspective on my father, there are three of us who are his kids who might have something to contribute to that!" The outlet noted that a studio is not yet attached to the project. However, Evans will reportedly produce the film alongside Logan, who is writing the script. Rian Johnson and Ram Bergman, who previously worked with...
    Every year brings new developments for PolyMet Mining’s controversial copper and nickel mine proposal in northeast Minnesota, but it can sometimes feels like nothing ever changes. The project first entered the environmental review and permitting process in 2005, when George W. Bush was president and Tim Pawlenty was governor of Minnesota. Now, 17 years later, aspects of the mine’s plan and its permits are still being investigated or challenged in court to see if PolyMet would risk polluting Minnesota water, air and habitat. Still, a few key milestones are approaching in 2022 that could resolve some crucial questions about the mine’s permits, even if other aspects of the project could still be challenged. This year “really could be kind of a watershed year for the project,” said Bruce Richardson, a PolyMet spokesman. Where things stand If built, PolyMet’s open-pit mine near Hoyt Lakes and Babbit would be the first of its kind in Minnesota. While Minnesota has a long history of mining iron ore and taconite, there aren’t mines to extract copper, nickel, cobalt, palladium, platinum and gold as PolyMet...

    by Mark Canada, Indiana University Kokomo and Christina Downey, Indiana University If you’ve made a New Year’s resolution, your plot for self-improvement probably kicks into gear sometime on Jan. 1, when the hangover wears off and the quest for the “new you” begins in earnest. But if research on habit change is any indication, only about half of New Year’s resolutions are likely to make it out of January, much less last a lifetime. As experts in positive psychology and literature, we recommend an unconventional but more promising approach. We call it the “old year’s resolution.” It combines insights from psychologists and America’s first self-improvement guru, Benjamin Franklin, who pioneered a habit-change model that was way ahead of its time. With the “old year” approach, perhaps you can sidestep the inevitable challenges that come with traditional New Year’s resolutions and achieve lasting, positive changes.A period to practice – and failResearch has highlighted two potential pitfalls with New Year’s resolutions. First, if you lack the confidence to invest in a full-fledged effort, failure to achieve the goal...

It was praised by some as shining a light on untold history, but lambasted by others, including former President Donald Trump, for what he said was a jaundiced view of the US The founder of The 1619 Project has claimed that Americans have 'been taught the history of a country that does not exist', defending her controversial work for The New York Times but admitting that it was not objective. Nikole Hannah-Jones won a Pulitzer for her reporting reframing the history of the United States, which put far greater emphasis on the impact of slavery. Published in August 2019, to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the first enslaved Africans in the English colony of Virginia, the work has been criticized by some academics for its claims, and angered many others who saw it as unpatriotic. Hannah-Jones, 45, has rarely been out of the headlines since, and on Tuesday she told the Associated Press that the ongoing debate was unsurprising.

    The New York Times received a temporary reprieve to hold on to copies of memos written by a lawyer for Project Veritas. A New York state appeals court issued a ruling on Tuesday that stays part of a trial judge's order last week requiring The New York Times to surrender physical copies or destroy electronic copies of the memos that the conservative group says are protected by attorney-client privilege. But one other facet of the order by Judge Charles Wood of the state Supreme Court in Westchester County that remains in place prevents The New York Times from publishing the memos discussing the methods of reporting of Project Veritas, which is suing the newspaper for defamation.

Here are a few of the bigger green project developments of the year: Offshore wind Virginia-based utility Dominion Energy, along with Spanish engineering firm Siemens Gamesa, announced plans in October to construct a first-of-its-kind factory to manufacture blades for offshore wind turbines in Portsmouth, Virginia. Dominion plans to build 180 turbines by 2026 as part of its Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind project, which would generate 2.6 gigawatts of electricity — enough to power 660,000 homes. Further north, Vineyard Wind, which is positioned to be the United States's first utility-scale offshore wind installation off the coast of Martha's Vineyard, began work last month on the project. Vineyard Wind had placed an order earlier in the year for 62 General Electric Haliade-X turbines, the most powerful on the market. GE announced that deal for the 13 MW offshore turbines on Oct. 11...

    The Justice Department is investigating whether a Trump-supporting woman who took over Ashley Biden's room in a Florida rental house tried to sell her diary to Project Veritas.   And whether the right-wing group Project Veritas tried to extort an interview with now President Joe Biden during the final weeks of the 2020 campaign, using the diary as leverage.   The New York Times revealed new details Thursday about the ongoing probe, as DOJ and FBI investigators look into whether there was a criminal conspiracy to steal and publish the diary that involved the woman, who was in a bitter custody battle, her associate, who once pleaded guilty in a money laundering scheme, a Trump donor who the ex-president elevated to a political position in the waning days of his administration and current and ex-operatives of Project Veritas.     The Justice Department is investigating whether a Trump-supporting woman who took over Ashley Biden's (right) room in a Florida rental house tried to sell her diary to Project Veritas during a bitter custody battle.

    AN ART student has shockingly revealed that she spent no money for three weeks whilst she posed as a socialite. Zou Yaqi, from Beijing, China, took student money-saving hacks to the extreme this year by pretending to be a socialite to see if it would bag her free goods. 3Zou Yaqi pretended to be a socialite 'in the name of art' and to highlight issues with capitalismCredit: Zou Yaqi /Weibo The 23-year-old art student claims to have taken on the project in May earlier this year 'in the name of art'. Apparently, she aimed to 'break the rules' of class structure and enter the 'world of the rich' to shine a spotlight on the negative impacts of capitalism and consumerism. To get into the role, Zou first researched what socialites tend to wear and began mimicking the style. She bought a fake Hermès Birkin bag, which is the most expensive handbag in the world, which ranges from £5,000 way up to the hundreds of thousands. Zou also bought a knock-off designer tracksuit and faux-diamond ring to look the part. She...
    DENVER (CBS4)– Denver International Airport leaders Thursday tried to make the case for the need for a $1.1 to $1.3 billion Phase Three of the Great Hall reconstruction project. (credit: CBS) “This is the best time to finish what we started. This terminal and this airport and this airport is 26 years old and is showing its age,” said CEO Phil Washington. “A new terminal sets us up for the next 20 or 30 years.” Years when the airport is estimated to see an increase of 30% in passenger traffic to as many as 100 million a year. The airport needs city council approval as it hopes to float bonds that would be repaid with airport fees on things like passenger travel and parking. A business committee has already signed off on the plan. “I’ve been around a lot of projects where folks do it halfway and all of that. No, we need to do it right for the benefit of our region,” said Washington. It comes after rough sledding in the early part of the Great...

    Rachel Campos-Duffy and Sean Duffy on Fox News Fox News books scored its third New York Times best-seller this week with All American Christmas. The book is co-authored by Fox News’ Rachel Campos-Duffy and her husband, former congressman and reality TV star, Sean Duffy. It has sold over 200,000 copies since its release in mid-November. The book has been on the hardcover nonfiction best-seller list for four weeks and knocked The 1619 Project – edited by Nikole Hannah-Jones – out of the top spot. Dave Grohl’s memoir The Storyteller is currently in second place, with The 1619 Project down to third. All American Christmas is billed as featuring the Duffy’s “favorite holiday traditions (including recipes and family photos) alongside those of leading Fox News personalities like Jesse Watters, Bret Baier, Martha MacCallum, Ainsley Earhardt, Geraldo Rivera, and many more.” The Duffys have nine children and share their family memories from over the years.

    MOUNTAIN VIEW — As Google embarks on building a transformative urban village project set to be the second-largest residential development in Bay Area history, the city council is seeking assurances from the tech titan that it can deliver what it has promised. After the coronavirus pandemic wreaked havoc on the construction and development industry across the Bay Area, Mountain View officials are wary of the project’s 30-year construction timeline and are asking Google to negotiate benchmarks and milestones in the development agreement to make sure community benefits are actually delivered. During a city council meeting Tuesday, Mountain View council members raised concerns about Google’s ambitious plans to build a walkable urban village on 127 acres of office parks in the North Bayshore neighborhood. The development calls for 7,000 residential units and about 3.1 million square feet of office space, as well as room for shops, restaurants, open space and a potential school site. Second only to San Francisco’s Treasure Island residential development plans in terms of sheer scale, the North Bayshore project represents part of Google’s overall vision to double down...

    It's good to start the day with a hug – but not many would choose to share their display of affection with a fully grown lion. Conservationist Valentin Gruener is more like a father to nine-year-old Sirga, though.  He rescued her as a sickly cub in 2012 when she was abandoned by her mother and the pair have since developed an incredible bond. They walk, play wrestle and even swim together at the Modisa Wildlife Project in Botswana where Sirga lives with German Valentin, 34, and his partner Sarah, 33. 'I guess Sirga thinks of me as a best friend.  'She loves to give me a big hug. She does rub her head on mine a lot, just like a domestic cat,' Valentin said.  'Sirga has never been aggressive towards me but I have huge respect for the power she has.  'I am sure she is aware that I am very different.' Apex predator Sirga has known Valentin Gruener her whole life since he began raising her after she was rejected by her mother The nine-year-old African queen of the jungle...
              moreby Thomas Catenacci   Regulations pushed by environmentalists for decades have hamstrung the American mining industry, making the U.S. renewable energy needs increasingly dependent on foreign adversaries, experts told the Daily Caller News Foundation. Extensive permitting processes under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) make it extremely difficult to open mining projects in less than a decade, according to experts. The nation’s weakness in producing minerals required for technologies such as solar panels, electric vehicles and wind turbines has set it far behind the likes of China and Russia which have secured burgeoning green energy supply chains. “The NEPA process needs to be reviewed and looked at,” Minnesota Rep. Pete Stauber, the top Republican on the Natural Resources Energy and Mineral Subcommittee, told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “Reduce the redundancy and the red tape. Instead of going through a state process and a federal process, which are the same, take the strictest, most stringent process and move it along.” On average, it takes about 10 years for the federal government to approve mining permits, one of the longest wait...
    A British art collective plans to launch a collection of NFTs purporting to grant ownership of the stars, as the crypto-art craze shows no signs of abating. The Ten Thousand Suns project, created by the Adequate Content collective, says it will issue 9,096 NFTs which correspond to every star visible with the naked eye from Earth later this month. Each NFT will grant proof of ownership of a unique digital artwork created by the collective, consisting of an interactive representation of the corresponding star in the sky.  The whimsical project seems to have piqued the interest of Warren Buffett's estranged granddaughter, the artist Nicole Buffett, who joined the group's online chat server on Discord. 'The absurd in art is a concept that is always kind of linked,' said one of the creators in an interview with DailyMail.com. 'That seems the point of art, to reach for the sublime.'   The Ten Thousand Suns project, created by the Adequate Content collective, says it will issue 9,096 NFTs which correspond to every star visible with the naked eye. Each NFT will consist of an...
    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Baltimore approved funding for the installation of “constructed wetlands” along the Middle Branch, restoring the shoreline of parts of the Patapsco River and protecting South Baltimore neighborhoods from flooding, Mayor Brandon Scott said Friday. The project is part of the larger Reimagine Middle Branch initiative, which looks to activate the waterfront with parks, an east-west trail and other amenities. READ MORE: Reisterstown Shooting Victim Dies Of His Injuries, Baltimore County Police Say“Early maps of the Middle Branch… show a thick, natural, and resilient shoreline edge,” a report on the project says. “Through time, this edge has been reshaped and hardened by industry and infrastructure, resulting in a shoreline today that is thin, fragmented, and impacted by trash, highways, vacancy, and erosion.” On Wednesday, the Board of Estimates approved an allocation of $5.1 million from the Department of Public Works budget toward the construction of wetlands. The Maryland Department of Natural Resources is providing an additional $3.5 million through a grant. “Today’s funding announcement is a win in support of the neighbors and communities in South Baltimore, which...
    This fund provides an impartial account of the events leading up to the destruction of the planet, holds current generations accountable, encourages future generations, and aims to act urgently to avoid a bad end. Hidden somewhere in a granite plain surrounded by high mountains on the remote Australian island of Tasmania, a giant steel chest is about to record the devastation we do today. If those who discovered it could understand the messages in it, they would get a glimpse of what caused the fall of the civilization that once existed on earth. A great steel archive for future generations Describe A statement Released on December 6 by “Science Alert” – Project The black box of the earth“(Earths Black Box) is a 10m by 4m by 3m high steel facility in the remote area off the west coast of Tasmania, soon to be filled with solar-powered hard drives.

    CHICAGO (CBS) – Clark street is at a crossroads. The city plans to study the North Side street to see how it can boost new development. It’s a one-mile stretch of Clark from Foster to Montrose — linking the Uptown, Andersonville, Ravenswood, and Wrigleyville neighborhoods. The Department of Planning and Development is launching the “Crossroads” project — using $250,000 in Tax Increment Financing (TIF) to improve the Corridor.
    Dornoch Firth, Scotland (CNN)Professor William Sanderson, or Bill as he likes to be known, wades into the shallows of the Dornoch Firth as the sun breaks over the ragged skyline of the Scottish Highlands, turning the waters gold. Something in the water catches his eye and he stoops to pick it up. "This is a European native oyster," he explains. "They used to be very abundant in this site thousands of years ago right up to the 1800s."The shell in his hand is flatter and rounder than the faster growing Pacific oysters common in European restaurants today. It is also very rare, having been fished almost to extinction in British waters during the Industrial Revolution. "Rail networks opened up urban markets, and what had been localized oyster fisheries suddenly found markets for many millions in the major cities like London, Paris," explains Sanderson, who is based at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh. At the time, oysters were considered a "poor man's food" and sold as street food, says Sanderson. "You could even pay your rent in oysters in Edinburgh if you...
    SACRAMENTO —  They’re planning to demolish most of the state Capitol and replace it with a larger, more luxurious structure for about $1.3 billion. During construction, the governor and legislators will be quartered at a new 10-story building one block away that is costing another roughly $450 million. The temporary quarters are dubbed the “swing space” because elected officials are swinging in now and will be swinging out when the Capitol project is completed. It’s hoped that will be in time for California’s 175th statehood anniversary on Sept. 9, 2025. So, a new era is starting in California state government, and its facilities won’t be cheap. Slated to be torn down is the “annex,” the east wing that was completed for $7.6 million in 1952, when Earl Warren was governor. It attaches awkwardly to the domed old Capitol, completed in 1874 at a cost of $2.6 million. The original Capitol was modernized — without being demolished — for $72 million and reopened in 1982. It contains the Legislature’s ornate floor chambers and leaders’ handsome 19th century-style offices. Before it was recently...
