State-run health insurance markets that offer coverage under President Barack Obama's health law are struggling with high costs and disappointing enrollment. These challenges could lead more of them to turn over operations to the federal government or join forces with other states. Hawaii's marketplace, the latest cautionary tale, was awarded $205 million in federal startup grants. It has spent about $139 million and enrolled 8,200 customers for individual coverage in 2015. Unable to sustain itself, the state marketplace is turning over sign-ups to the federal HealthCare.gov for 2016.

California regulators adopted a controversial plan Friday that will increase electricity bills for those who use the least power. People with a household income under $27,400 should see monthly bills rise $5.84; those with household incomes ranging from $27,400 to $54,800 will see an increase of $4.59; those with incomes of $54,800 to $82,200 will see a $2.40 increase; households in the $82,200 to $137,000 range will see a 70 cent increase; and people with household incomes over $137,000 will see a reduction of $5.78 a month, according to estimates in a blog post by Severin Borenstein, public policy research associate with the Energy Institute at UC Berkeley. read more

The longtime suppliers to Whole Foods are complaining that the program called Responsibly Grown can grant a farmer who does not meet the stringent requirements for federal organic certification the same rating as an organic farmer, or even a higher one. Conventional growers can receive higher rankings than organic farmers by doing things such as establishing a garbage-recycling program, relying more on alternative-energy sources, eliminating some pesticides and setting aside a portion of fields as a conservation area.

LFTH, you don't know what you are talking about, people by nature are very aware of the conservation.

It so funny watching the environmentalist scream and bit## about how things are getting ruined and we need to stop totally without ever grasping the effects that simple awareness and compromise to better more efficient regulations does a far better job.

Obama unveils tougher climate plan....LOL, it is really Obama hates the coal industry cause environmentalist say it is so so bad, but fails to realize this is electricity which will be like gas now in a few years. The cost will be so high that the population will not believe the environmentalist much longer, first the damns, now the plants, and even now they are beginning to strike at the wind mills as it supposedly is killing wild life.

Benefits Of Hunting

What does hunting provide? Two things: money and oversight. As we noted, rural Africans are poor and must eke a living from whatever means are most expeditious. Safari companies provide long-term employment to rural Africans. There are the immediate and obvious jobs, such as working in a hunting camp, but there are also anti-poaching teams, bridge and road building crews and game scouts who all derive a livelihood from hunting.

In Zimbabwe, hunting elephants alone generates $15 million a year, according to George Pangeti of the Zimbabwe Parks Department. And continent-wide, approximately $77 million will be generated from the 1,540 quota of hunted elephant set by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) for 2010.

In the 2007 hunting season in South Africa, 16,394 foreign hunters spent $91 million, according to the South African Professional Hunters Association. The association estimates that 70,000 jobs are created by South Africa's game-ranching industry.

In Washington state, the state did a study on salmon industry and quickly found out that the private individual fishmen generated far more revenue to the state then the commercial fishermen and quickly changed regulations to severely limit commercialized fishing to a more private individualized fishing. The state also realized that while giving out licenses for hunting that the hunters where far better at getting information about the wild life and numbers and were much more interested in conservation of the wild life.

If you want to hunt wild animals you don't kill all the wild animals it is so simple to hunters but environmentalist ignorance about this hurt their agendas.
