Oil Companies Secretly Got Paid Twice For Cleaning Up Toxic Fuel Leaks

by Unknown Lamer
ClintJCL

despicable - another subsidy, when we should be subsidizing renewable energy sources

Hugh Pickens DOT Com writes "Mica Rosenberg reports at Reuters that major oil companies including Chevron, Exxon, ConocoPhillips, Phillips 66, and Sunoco were paid twice for dealing with leaks from underground fuel storage tanks — once from government funds and again, secretly, from insurance companies. Court documents show many of the cases and settlement agreements follow a similar pattern, accusing the oil companies of 'double-dipping' by collecting both special state funds and insurance money for the same tank cleanups. Some states say any insurance payouts should have gone to them since they covered the cost of the work. 'It appears this was a really common practice and it's very disconcerting,' says Colorado Attorney General John Suthers. 'Basically the companies were defrauding the state.' Approximately 40 states and the District of Columbia have special funds to cover the costs of removing and replacing the old tanks, excavating tainted dirt and pumping out dirty groundwater. Since 1988, there have been more than half a million leaky tanks reported across the country. Nearly 80,000 spills still are waiting to be cleaned up. The lawsuits against the oil companies allege fraud or other civil, not criminal, claims, which have a lower burden of proof and do not lead to jail time. Companies are largely cooperating to forge settlement deals and were interested in partnering with the states to clean up the legacy of petroleum leaks. For example Phillips 66 paid Utah $2 million to resolve allegations that the oil company defrauded a state fund to the tune of $25 million for cleanups associated with leaking underground tanks. Phillips sued myriad insurers over coverage for contamination arising from leaking tanks around the country and Phillips 66 wound up collecting $286 million from its insurers to resolve these disputes, but it never divulged any of this to Utah officials, the suit alleged. 'When I first saw these cases, I thought this is kind of incredible,' says New Mexico assistant attorney general Seth Cohen, who handled the lawsuit for the state. 'The oil companies have, in effect, profited off polluting.'"

Today on the subway I was sandwiched in between the following: 1) Neckbeard with long fingernails and grey sweatpants (he stunk); 2) Aisle guy who kept inadvertently smushing his junk against my left shoulder; 3) Some dude with the exact same ramen noodle hair as the singer from Nickleback; and 4) Potential serial killer who looked at *lot* like Dennis Rader (BTK Strangler) and who had his hair cut in a straight line across the back of his neck a full inch above his natural hairline, only adding to the creepy factor. Fuuuuuck, I hate people.

"You Just Shot An Unarmed Man!": Witness Says Police Shot His Friend With His Hands Up

it's REALLY REALLY REALLY not cool for a wife arguing with a husband to tell the police he has a gun ... whether or not it's true. Tho it's a bit worse if it's not true, like here.

Despite five months having passed, police are still stonewalling and seem to have done nothing.

It looks like Micheal Morones's and his story have gone completely viral across the internet.  Loads of websites, large and small, as well as national news outlets are picking up on it.  Have a list!

CBS News

And finally, The Hub's Facebook and Twitter pages both tweeted/announced it today.  With the recovery fund already breaking the 52k mark, we might be seeing bullying history here. 

Here's to hoping he wakes up and sees it all! Poor kid. 

Thanks to everyone that sent all of these links in.

sweet Phillip Seymour hoffman ref, bro

Members of Congress grilled a representative from the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) Tuesday at a hearing of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and slammed the office for failing to acknowledge key facts about marijuana. Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) chided the drug czar’s office for relying on marijuana “propaganda.” Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) criticized the office for failing to address the National Institute on Drug Abuse’s obstruction of research into the medical benefits of marijuana.

Michael-Botticcelli

ONDCP Deputy Director Michael Botticelli

During his testimony regarding the Obama administration’s marijuana policy, ONDCP Deputy Director Michael Botticelli refused to acknowledge that marijuana poses less potential harm to the consumer than heroin or methamphetamine.

Some of the highlights of the hearing:

Rep. Blumenauer telling Dir. Botticelli “you’re part of the problem.” …

Rep. Cohen telling Dir. Botticelli to “ask Phillip Seymour Hoffman if marijuana is as dangerous as heroin.” …

Rep. Gerry Connolly pressing the witness on the fact that marijuana is less harmful than alcohol.

Michael Morones' Story Hits People Magazine

by Calpain

The massive publication People Magazine has picked up on the Michael Morones' story, bringing it to a national level in the public eye. It doesn't appear to contain much new information, but the fact it has reached such a big publication is pretty big news in of itself.

Hopefully this spreads some more awareness of Michael's plight and put a bigger spotlight on bullying.

Virtual Boss Keeps Workers On a Short Leash

by samzenpus
ClintJCL

well, this is basically that "Manna" story i just read, but actually happening...

Gr8Apes writes "Hitachi has created a 'perfect virtual boss' The company is manufacturing and selling a device intended to increase efficiency in the workplace called the Hitachi Business Microscope (paywalled). 'The device looks like an employee ID badge that most companies issue. Workers are instructed to wear it in the office. Embedded inside each badge, according to Hitachi, are "infrared sensors, an accelerometer, a microphone sensor and a wireless communication device." Hitachi says that the badges record and transmit to management "who talks to whom, how often, where and how energetically." It tracks everything. If you get up to walk around the office a lot, the badge sends information to management about how often you do it, and where you go. If you stop to talk with people throughout the day, the badge transmits who you're talking to (by reading your co-workers' badges), and for how long. Do you contribute at meetings, or just sit there? Either way, the badge tells your bosses.'"

We Are Giving Ourselves Cancer

ClintJCL

ladies, you might want to re-think annual mammograms.

DESPITE great strides in prevention and treatment, cancer rates remain stubbornly high and may soon surpass heart disease as the leading cause of death in the United States. Increasingly, we and many other experts believe that an important culprit may be our own medical practices: We are silently irradiating ourselves to death.

California Regulator Seeks To Shut Down 'Learn To Code' Bootcamps

ClintJCL

freedom from regulation is necessary

cultiv8 writes: "The Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE), a unit in the California Department of Consumer Affairs charged with licensing and regulating postsecondary education in California, is arguing that 'learn to code' bootcamps fall under its jurisdiction and are subject to regulation. In mid-January, BPPE sent cease and desist letters to Hackbright Academy, Hack Reactor, App Academy, Zipfian Academy, and others. Unless they comply, these organizations face imminent closure and a hefty $50,000 fine. A BPPE spokesperson said these organizations have two weeks to start coming into compliance."

Facebook Puts 10,000 Blu-ray Discs In Low-Power Storage System

by Unknown Lamer
ClintJCL

they're finally catching up to how we operate in my house... i knew it was cheaper all along ;)

itwbennett writes "Facebook said last year that it was exploring Blu-ray for its data-center storage needs, and on Tuesday it showed a prototype system at the Open Compute Project summit meeting in San Jose, California. It designed the system to store data that hardly ever needs to be accessed, or for so-called 'cold storage' (think duplicates of users' photos and videos that it keeps for backup). The Blu-ray system reduces costs by 50% and energy use by 80% compared with its current cold-storage system, which uses hard disk drives, said Jay Parikh, Facebook's vice president of infrastructure engineering." It's a prototype, and they're also evaluating low power flash as another alternative to keeping seldom accessed data on hard drives.

Why Whistleblowers Can't Get a Fair Trial

by samzenpus
ClintJCL

Yup. Obama prosecuted more whistleblowers than all other presidents in history combined.

phantomfive writes "'Seven whistleblowers have been prosecuted under the Obama administration,' writes Jesselyn Radack, a lawyer who advised two of them. She explains why they can't get a fair trial. In the Thomas Drake case, the administration retroactively marked documents as classified, saying, 'he knew they should have been classified.' In the Bradley Manning case, the jury wasn't allowed to see what information was leaked. The defendants, all who have been charged with espionage, have limited access to court documents. Most of these problems happen because the law was written to deal with traitorous spies, not whistleblowers."

Utah Is Ending Homelessness by Giving People Homes

ClintJCL

wow. great job.

Earlier this month, Hawaii State representative Tom Bower (D) began walking the streets of his Waikiki district with a sledgehammer, and smashing shopping carts used by homeless people. “Disgusted” by the city’s chronic homelessness problem, Bower decided to take matters into his own hands — literally. He also took to rousing homeless people if he saw them sleeping at bus stops during the day.

Ask Slashdot: It's 2014 -- Which New Technologies Should I Learn?

by Soulskill
An anonymous reader writes "I've been a software engineer for about 15 years, most of which I spent working on embedded systems (small custom systems running Linux), developing in C. However, web and mobile technologies seem to be taking over the world, and while I acknowledge that C isn't going away anytime soon, many job offers (at least those that seem interesting and in small companies) are asking for knowledge on these new technologies (web/mobile). Plus, I'm interested in them anyway. Unfortunately, there are so many of those new technologies that it's difficult to figure out what would be the best use of my time. Which ones would you recommend? What would be the smallest set of 'new technologies' one should know to be employable in web/mobile these days?"

It was back in December 2012 when we summarized the biggest failing with the Eurozone: a continent in which due to the lack of a flexible currency (also known as a gift to Germany and what otherwise would be a very, very expensive Deutsche Mark) the member nations were unable to devalue their way out of depression.
