They are camping out and holding a prayer vigil. Tomorrow I will be volunteering for the Obama campaign and providing food and beverages for the people waiting in line to vote. I voted early, the long lines were anticipated and I thought my time would be of better use assisting others on the day of the Election. Regardless of the outcome this gives me hope. Hope that my beautiful baby boy will have the opportunity to dream of becoming the President of this nation and that it can actually be a reality. In 17 years when you are able to vote i hope that this election will not seem as unique and unusual as it does today.
A, letter to, my, state, senator in Response to, fourth
The primary race was a hard one, he visit ran against Senator Hillary Clinton, wife of President Clinton. She fought a hard race but in the end our man came out on top. I have to share with you that placing my vote for Senator Obama in the primary was surreal. I could not believe that I was casting my vote for a black man for the highest office in the land no, the world. Senator Obama gave his acceptance speech on the anniversary. Martin Luther Kings speech at the lincoln Memorial. It was history that I shared at home with my mother, your grandmother. She is writing a letter to you too. We want you to be able to share our memories of this time with your children and grandchildren. Whenever I think of the possibility of Senator Obama becoming President tears well up in my eyes. I am listening to the tv and at 11:00 pm at night people are already lining up to vote in Atlanta.
Senator Obama is the child of a white mother and a kenyan father. He was primarily raised by his grandmother who unfortunately passed away today before seeing the outcome of the election. He is a graduate of Harvard, the first African American editor of the law review, and spent a good deal of his life after law school as a community organizer in Chicago. The child of a single mother, his life clearly is an illustration of the American dream fulfilled. I believe that Senator Obama is the best man for biography the job. His platform is Change and I do believe that after having the republicans in office for eight years it is high time for a change. Our economy is in shambles, we are in a recession and we need forward thinking in the White house. I proudly voted for him in both the primary and the general election.
The solutions offered to date by Apple for dealing with the so-called death grip malfunction-such as holding the device differently, or buying a cover for it-seem to be insufficient. These proposed solutions would unfairly place the burden on consumers for resolving a problem they were not aware of when they purchased their phones. I also encourage Apple to keep its promise to provide free software updates so that bars displayed accurately reflect signal strength; I further urge Apple to issue a written explanation of the formula it uses to calculate bar strength, so that consumers can once again. I look forward to Apples swift action on this matter, and once again laud Apple for its innovative efforts and service to millions of Americans. Schumer, tags: Apple, letter, new York, steve jobs. An Open Letter to my son. Dear mekhi, it is type the eve of the most historic Presidential election in my lifetime and i am sure in the history of the United States. The race is between an African American man with the unlikely name of Barack Obama and Senator John McCain whose running mate is a woman. If either of this men get elected it will make history.
Jobs, i write to express concern regarding the reception problem with the Apple iphone. While i commend Apples innovative approach to mobile technology and appreciate its service to millions of iPhone users nationwide, i believe it is incumbent upon Apple to address this flaw in a transparent manner. According to consumer Reports review, released Monday on its website, the iphone 4s signal-strength problem is a hardwire glitch triggered by gripping the device in a particular manner. This finding, according to consumer Reports, calls into question Apples recent claim that the problem is largely an optical illusion caused by faulty software. Consumer Reports declined to recommend the iphone 4 because of this hardware design flaw. Given the discrepancy between Consumer Reports explanation of the reception problem and the explanation provided by Apple in its July 2 letter to customers, i am concerned that the nearly two million purchasers of the iphone 4 may not have complete information about the quality. The burden for consumers caused by this glitch, combined with the confusion over its cause and how it will be fixed, has the potential to undermine the many benefits of this innovative device. To address this concern, i ask that Apple provide iphone 4 customers with a clearly written explanation of the cause of the reception problem and make a public commitment to remedy it free-of-charge.

Hampton speaks publicly, says Ensign paid severance
It is important to measure the impacts of the short and mini long term use of tdf. . Please explain what steps the nydec plans to take to measure ambient air quality of ambient air in the area of the plant. Thank you for your attention to my concerns and questions. . i appreciate the care that nydec took in its earlier review of the previously submitted inadequate if test bum permit application. I look forward to your reply and ask that the issues I have raised be resolved prior to the issuance of any draft permit for a tdf test burn. . In addition, i request that my staff in Vermont (Tom Berry ) and Washington,. (Chris Miller ) be contacted immediately when and if a completeness determination has been made on the most recent ip permit application and any decision is made to issue a draft permit for a test burn for public comment. James Jeffords, independent, is the ranking minority member on the senate Environment and Public Works Committee. Download the a copy of the original letter sent to governor Pataki (pdf 500k).
emissions can be estimated with confidence. This is prudent because experts believe that ip ticonderoga will likely exceed the is-ton pm threshold for triggering New source review and Prevention of Significant Deterioration requirements and therefore be required to apply best available control Technology prior to receiving any permit to use tdf. The potential increase in zinc oxide emissions from tdf combustion is also of great concern. I have worked for many years to protect and improve the quality of the lake champlain ecosystem and increases in zinc and zinc compounds could be detrimental to aquatic organisms. I request that the health of lake champlain be given special consideration in any tdf-related permits, and that ip ticonderoga's wastewater discharge system be monitored in the case of a trial burn. The plant npdes permit should also be modified to reflect the introduction of new pollutants. Further, i understand that tdf is available with no metal content whatsoever and suggest that the use of such fuel be considered as a condition in any draft test burn permit as well. 4) i understand that the vermont Agency of Natural Resources will have three ambient air monitoring stations available to monitor changes in air quality that may result from ip ticonderoga's trial burn, but also that none are proposed in the area of the plant.
In fact, International Paper informed my staff in a may 2004 letter that it uses esps on seven statement of eight of their facilities permitted to bum tdf. . The one plant without an esp reportedly does not routinely bum tdf. . beyond my concerns about the effects this proposal will have on the environment and on the health of the surrounding residents, it indicates that ip is avoiding long-term investment in the ticonderoga facility that will allow it to continue operating in a safe and sustainable. In addition to my general concerns with lP's proposal, there are several problems with this recent permit application. The epa's March 15, 2005 letter, states that the modeling analysis should include all criteria pollutants, including PM1o, pm2.5, but the most recent application fails to model, or monitor for PM2.5. Fine particulates increase when tdf is burned and these emissions are known to cause respiratory disease and heart attacks. Furthermore, a 2003 epa staff paper has called for the pm2.5 standards to be tightened, and if the most stringent standards recommended are finalized, southern Vermont may well be designated as nonattainment.
My, letter to, senator, manchin - miburg
This is the full text of an letter by senator James Jeffords sent governor Pataki on September 2, 2005. The honorable george. Pataki, governor of the State of New York. State capitol Albany, ny 12224, dear governor Pataki: i am writing to express my continuing concern about International Papers efforts to burn Tire derived fuel (TDF) at their Ticonderoga paper plant. International Papers July 5, 2005 revised permit application fails to address many concerns raised by their inadequate february 1,2005 permit application, and it omits important modeling analysis and monitoring steps necessary to ensuring that a trial burn of tdf can be safely conducted. Ip's continued insistence on burning tdf without upgrading their emissions control technology to include an electrostatic first precipitator (ESP) suggests that the corporation does not value highly enough the health of the Champlain Valley and its residents. While i appreciate that many vermonters may derive economic benefits from this plant, ip's benefit-cost analysis of installing better pollution control does not include the long-term costs to public and environmental health of failing to add such controls. My staff has surveyed several other pulp and paper mills around the country that burn tdf, and nearly all of these mills use an esp to control air emissions.
