Obama Admin. Finally Taking Action On Bird Deaths At Wind Farms

"So http://www.savingsdaily.com/post/scott-disick-sports-fake-beard-for-kardashian-family-yard-sale there are values I care about, but I'm pretty pragmatic when it comes to how do we get there," Obama said. Republicans who control the House of Representatives might dispute Obama's statement that he is non-ideological. In calling for a Democratic takeover of the House after next year's elections, Obama told donors he is "incredibly optimistic" about the nation's future. "But I'm also mindful of the fact that we have some barriers, some impediments, to change and progress," he added. "The biggest barrier and impediment we have right now is a Congress and in particular a House of Representatives that is not focused on getting the job done for the American people, but is a lot more focused on trying to position themselves for the next election or to defeat my agenda," Obama said. The president also said that "if you strip away politics, there's actually a pretty broad consensus in this country" on such items as early childhood education, rebuilding infrastructure, investing in science and research, and immigration legislation. Obama has more Democratic campaign fundraisers Monday and Tuesday in San Francisco and Los Angeles. <br>More: http://www.usatoday.com/story/theoval/2013/11/25/obama-ideological-democratic-fundraiser-seattle/3696687/

- Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., told Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace the nuclear deal struck between Iran and Western powers is a victory for the Tehran regime. The agreement eases sanctions on Iran and will send billions of dollars to the Islamist government while still allowing Iran to continue with its nuclear program. The architect of the deal, Secretary of State John Kerry, defended the agreement on Sunday, telling ABC News that the deal allows intrusive inspections of Irans nuclear facilities and limits the country's ability to enrich uranium. Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., and Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., both voiced similar concerns about the deal, suggesting Kerry may face challenges in getting Kim Kardashian Congress to stay out of it. <br>More: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/11/25/paypal-obama-not-too-busy-for-fundraisers/

More Americans say Obama can't manage government, poll shows

Fish and Wildlife Service. The service has 18 open investigations into bird and bat deaths at wind farms, according to a spokeswoman. Fourteen of these cases involve the death of at least one golden eagle a federally protected bird. House Republicans have been putting pressure on the Obama administration in recent months to release documents and information regarding Justice Department and Fish and Wildlife Service actions on wind farms that kill birds. [Justice Departments] lack of a timely response is unacceptable and frustrates Congresss ability to conduct oversight of this important matter, reads one letter from House Republicans to the Justice Department. The Obama administration urged wind-turbine companies to research possible effects on birds before citing farms, because at the present time, no post-construction remedies except shutting down turbines can make it safe for birds to fly in those areas. According to court filings, Duke is working on radar technology for wind turbines that will detect eagles near wind sites. <br>More: http://dailycaller.com/2013/11/25/obama-admin-finally-taking-action-on-bird-deaths-at-wind-farms/

adults surveyed in the telephone poll early last week said Obama can manage the government effectively, down 12 percentage points from June. The poll was conducted November 18-20 amid ongoing problems plaguing the president's signature domestic policy achievement, the healthcare law widely known as Obamacare. HealthCare.gov, the administration's web portal for offering private health coverage to uninsured Americans in 36 of the 50 U.S. states, has been at the centre of a political firestorm over technical problems that overwhelmed its October 1 launch and have dogged the system ever since. In addition, insurance companies have cancelled millions of existing insurance policies because of the law, raising questions about Obama's promise that people would be able to keep their policies if they were happy with their coverage. The pollsters said the survey, conducted by ORC International with a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points, recorded the worst http://hickmanrrpw.wordpress.com/2013/11/09/heres-how-a-kardashian-photo-shoot-goes-down/ scores for Obama during his five years in office in key categories. <br>More: http://uk.reuters.com/article/2013/11/25/uk-usa-obama-poll-idUKBRE9AO0K820131125

France Buoyed by World Cup Qualification

That was the minimum margin neededwithout a penalty shootoutto qualify for soccer's biggest global event after France lost 2-0 in the first leg of the tie in Ukraine last week. The success was against the odds: Soccer's world governing body FIFA has said a comeback from such a deficit has never been achieved in European World Cup qualifying playoffs. "We savor victories, particularly at the moment," said Mr. Hollande in a television interview at the stadium, the scene of France's 1998 World Cup victory. "It gives us an example. We have to go for it; we have to believe." On Wednesday morning, the underdog victory for Les Bleus dominated the national press, overtaking coverage of a manhunt for a lone gunman who left Paris on edge just two days ago and of endless rounds of layoffs at French companies. News channels showed the three goals and end-of-game celebrations, and leading newspapers plastered their front pages with pictures from the game. <br>More: http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702304791704579209454160630672

'Spoiler' role over, France joins the party celebrating an Iran nuclear deal

Against the All Blacks this month and the Springboks on Saturday, Philippe Saint-Andre's men competed on equal terms but came up just short. Slightly inferior physically, they also paid for not maintaining their focus for the entire game and for failing to score during periods of domination. "After each game we realise there is an extra layer to add," captain Thierry Dusautoir told reporters after the South Africa defeat. The loss followed a 26-19 defeat by New Zealand and a 38-18 victory over Tonga, only France's second win of the year. "We had some physical problems against Tonga but we pulled through, this time we did not," centre Mathieu Bastareaud said. "We're not far from them (New Zealand and South Africa) but we're the fifth nation in the world and we're in our place. When we play the best teams we come up just short," manager Philippe Saint-Andre said. <br>More: http://news.yahoo.com/france-know-where-stand-dismal-073550395--spt.html

France know where they stand after dismal year

Officially, France can say its hawkish posture, the harshest among the P5+1, allowed the forging of a tougher deal today, one that more confidently guarantees that Iran seeks only peaceful nuclear prowess. And while that may be true, France also likely joined the P5+1 position, after pushing back against the accord earlier this month, because the US and Iran clearly wanted to see a deal inked. RECOMMENDED: How much do you know about Iran? Take our quiz to find out. France's position was not sustainable, says Thierry Coville, an Iran expert at the Institute for International and Strategic Relations other in Paris. There are many reasons France has taken such a hard line on Iran .In recent years, ithas deepened its relationship with Israel and Iran's regional rivals in the Gulf countries, with whom it has signed multi-billion dollar business and arms deals, and there are historic grudges between France and the Islamic Republic that date back to the Iraq-Iran war. <br>More: http://www.csmonitor.com/World/Security-Watch/2013/1124/Spoiler-role-over-France-joins-the-party-celebrating-an-Iran-nuclear-deal

Amsterdam pays alcoholics in beer to clean up streets

Follow Comments Following Comments Unfollow Comments Amsterdam Coffee Shops near schools will have to close during school hours Amsterdams mayor, Eberhard van der Laan, recently announcedthat as of next January,cannabis cafes located within 250 meters of secondary schools must close their doors during school hours. And thathas given new impetus to the ongoing often vehement -national debate over the Netherlands marijuana policy. Despite repeated assertions about his intention to keep the citys coffee shops cafes where small amounts of cannabis are sold open to everyone, against national requirements to the contrary, the decision seems to indicate a new turn around a complicated issue that has set the national government against progressive mayors of major cities with Van der Laan at their head. Since January 1, 2013,coffee shops have been required to ensure that only legal residents of the Netherlands are allowed to buy cannabis products. However, the legislation permits local circumstances to be factored in, which many mayorsuse to evademonitoring whether tourists are slipping into their cities coffee shops. The previous government in Mayintroduced a wietpas system in the south of the country a special weed pass allowingresidents to shop in the cannabis cafes and plannedto extend it nationwide next year. While the new government coalition dropped the registration system, itstill wants to keep pot tourists out. <br>More: http://www.forbes.com/sites/ceciliarodriguez/2013/11/21/marijuana-prohibition-closing-in-on-amsterdam/

Alcoholics in Amsterdam being paid with beer to clean streets Along with beer, participants also receive a hot meal, a small stipend, and a pack of tobacco for their work. By Thu, Nov 21 2013 at 11:43 AM Related Topics: Photo: Shutterstock Alcoholics need alcohol, streets need to be cleaned; with those two facts in mind, the Dutch capital of Amsterdam has decided to pay alcoholics with beer to help keep the streets tidy. Searching for a way to quell the disturbances that some alcoholics were http://marandavan.newsvine.com/_news/2013/11/17/21500286-for-instance-wine-directories-health-directories-parenting-directories-and-real-estate-broker-directories-of-a-certain-region-are-growing-in-popularity causing in one of the city parks, the plan was hatched by the Rainbow Foundation project, which is funded by the state and donations. "This group of chronic alcoholics was causing a nuisance in Amsterdam's Oosterpark : fights, noise, disagreeable comments to women," Gerrie Holterman, head of the Rainbow Foundation project, told AFP . The aim is to keep them occupied, to get them doing something so they no longer cause trouble at the park. The men start the day with two beers, work until lunch, are fed a warm meal with two more beers, continue working, and are then off the clock with another beer, 10 euros (approximately $13) and a half-pack of rolling tobacco. While the novel approach would likely be maligned in other places, it suits Amsterdams pragmatic outlook . <br>More: http://www.mnn.com/money/green-workplace/stories/alcoholics-in-amsterdam-being-paid-with-beer-to-clean-streets

So the idea was that picking up trash would at least keep them busy during the day read here at -- they work from 9 a.m. to about 3:30 p.m. The alcoholics, who are all in the program voluntarily, are split into groups of about 10, with each group working three days a week. A day of work for the group starts with two beers and coffee before they go out and starting cleaning the city's streets. Then they return at lunch for two more beers and a hot lunch. The shift wraps up around 3:30 with one final beer. "I think I can speak for the group and say that if they didn't give us beers, then we wouldn't come," says one participant, Frank, who "has been jailed for violence, has never worked for anyone, and has no fixed abode." And as nice as it sounds to get beer -- and quite frankly, a lot of it -- at work, Frank points out, "We need alcohol to function; that's the disadvantage of chronic alcoholism." And while participants say the program has given their lives structure for the first time in years, it's not clear whether the program is actually making them drink less. <br>More: http://blogs.phoenixnewtimes.com/bella/2013/11/amsterdam_pays_alcoholics_beer.php

Liverpool Offer Luis Suarez To Real Madrid To Guarantee He Doesn

Struggling backline: problems at the back are growing and cannot be ignored. The Fullbacks need to step up their game. The Real Madrid defense boasts of having some of the best defenders in the world at their disposal. However, many times Real Madrid have ended up conceding goals after piling a heavy lead on the oppositions. Their only saviour in these situations has been the man between the sticks. Though the fact that Diego Lopez is in great form and is producing exquisite performances has helped Real Madrid to a great extent, the Spaniard is being tested by the opponents way too often. <br>More: http://www.thehardtackle.com/2013/real-madrid-emergence-of-modric-and-a-struggling-backline/

It was a costly draw, made all the more so by the date looming with Atletico Madrid where their chances of bouncing back on a win or even a draw are expected to be rather grim. Bet365 is offering a win at a pricey +1200 while setting the draw at +475 soccer odds . Getafe have Real Sociedad, Granada, Valencia and Levante crowding their style right now a quartet that is just three points adrift and looking towards ascending this weekend, which if goes to plan could see Getafe start to slip down the table a slide they might be helpless to prevent and could see them into the bottom half before the New Year as theyve received no favours from the schedule. Upcoming dates with Levante, Malaga and Barcelona before the New Year present three crucial matches where theyll be challenged to take maximum points. Soccer Betting Verdict While both Atletico Madrid and Getafe will be eager to reverse recent fortunes and get back on the winning track something is going to give. More likely than not itll be Getafe that falters on the road. Atletico Madrid have been divinely untouchable all season long at home with a 6-0-0 record, so its really going to be a tough ask for Getafe. Thus, Atletico Madrid to win outright at -450 soccer odds does seem to be the smart soccer pick . <br>More: http://www.sbrforum.com/soccer/free-picks/la-liga-soccer-picks-atletico-madrid-vs-getafe-a-35100/

Suarez has set the Premier League on fire this term, but for the right reasons. Since returning from his 10 match ban for biting Chelseas Branislav Ivanovic http://nipakamalr.livejournal.com/7919.html last season, hes scored eight goals in just six league matches. The only player in Europe with a better striker rate than that is Madrids own Cristiano Ronaldo. Suarez actively tried to leave Anfield during the summer in search of the Champions League football his talent undoubtedly deserves. His club refused all offers from Arsenal however, because they didnt want to sell to a Premier League rival. Madrid on the other hand were focused on the 85m Gareth Bale deal, meaning the Reds managed to hold on ot their star striker for the time being at least. <br>More: http://www.fanatix.com/news/liverpool-offer-luis-suarez-to-real-madrid-to-guarantee-he-doesnt-join-arsenal/165528/

The Brazil international moved to England from Internacional in 2012, but has revealed that current Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho wanted him to join the Blancos instead. Oscar said that the Portuguese manager came to watch him in an international friendly against Denmark, but the 22-year-old was put off joining the Liga giants because of the intense level of competition at the Santiago Bernabeu. "A month before signing for Chelsea I was very close to doing so with Real Madrid as Mourinho said he wanted me," he told Globoesporte. "Before the game [against Denmark] there were talks with Madrid, but they had the playmaker position well covered. After that, I signed for Chelsea." Oscar has scored four times in all competitions this season, helping Chelsea to fourth in the Premier League and the top spot in Champions League Group E, and the Selecao star attributes his good form to Mourinho. <br>More: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/oscar-mourinho-wanted-real-madrid-185600647--sow.html
