The Cost of a Hot Economy in California: A Severe Housing Crisis

Now here in Sacramento, lawmakers are considering extraordinary legislation to, in effect, crack down on communities that have, in their view, systematically delayed or derailed housing construction proposals, often at the behest of local neighborhood groups. The bill was passed by the Senate last month and could be acted on as soon as this week.Continue reading the main story“The explosive costs of housing have spread like wildfire around the state,” said Scott Wiener, a Democratic senator from San Francisco who sponsored the bill. “This is no longer a coastal, elite housing problem […]

Court Blocks E.P.A. Effort to Suspend Obama-Era Methane Rule

“E.P.A.’s stay, in other words, is essentially an order delaying the rule’s effective date, and this court has held that such orders are tantamount to amending or revoking a rule,” Judges David Tatel and Robert Wilkins wrote. The third member of the three-judge panel, Janice Rogers Brown, dissented.Continue reading the main storyThe judges said that the agency had the right to reverse the methane regulations but would have to undertake a new rule-making process to undo the Obama administration’s regulation.An E.P.A. spokeswoman said the agency was reviewing the opinion and would weigh its options.Critics say the Trump administration has improperly delayed other regulations as well, and have challenged a May E.P.A. decision to suspend for 90 days a rule aimed at cutting methane emissions from landfills.In June, the Interior Department also delayed for two years a set of rules that would have limited the release of methane from wells on federal and tribal lands. That rule has been in the administration’s cross hairs, but an attempt to reverse it in Congress failed when Senator John McCain, Republican of Arizona, and two other Republicans defected.GraphicHow Americans Think About Climate Change, in Six MapsAmericans overwhelmingly believe that global warming is happening, and that carbon emissions should be scaled back. But fewer are sure that it will harm them personally.OPEN GraphicThe administration has also used the delay tactic to stop a Food and Drug Administration rule requiring restaurants to list the calories in the food they sell and a Labor Department regulation mandating that financial advisers put consumers’ best interests ahead of their own.The E.P.A. has been in the vanguard of the administration’s attempts to dismantle what Mr. […]

The Housewife Assassin’s Guide to Gracious Killing – Josie Brown

The Housewife Assassin’s Guide to Gracious Killing Josie Brown Genre: Women Sleuths Publish Date: October 15, 2012 Publisher: Signal Press Seller: Josie Brown d b a Signal Press Books In Book 2 of THE HOUSEWIFE ASSASSIN series, a nuclear arms summit hosted by a politically-connected American billionaire industrialist provides the perfect opportunity for a rogue operative to assassinate of the newly-elected Russian president on US soil. Acme operative Donna Stone's mission: seek and exterminate, before all hell–and World War III–break loose. But first things first: file for divorce! PRAISE FOR THE HOUSEWIFE ASSASSIN SERIES: "This is a super sexy and fun read that you shouldn't miss! How do I love this book, let me count the ways: (1.) A kick ass woman that can literally kick ass as well as cook and clean.  Donna gives a whole new meaning to "taking out the trash". (2.) The book is set around Los Angeles, mostly in a gated community suspiciously like Coto de Caza, full of housewives that could be 'real" and for the setting alone, a big giant WIN! (3.) Super sarcasm, snarky dialogue and making fun of all that is wrong in the OC, politics, as well as current world affairs."  — Mary Jacobs, Book Hounds Reviews "If I was a housewife, I would want to be Donna.  I'm not kidding guys, the girl can shoot, seduce, and kill, all while balancing the demands of carpool and managing the suburban mommies and their opinion of her and her kids.  Her hostess skills are to die for, and many have fallen for her seduction routines. Enter Jack, who is a fantastic and well known agent, and sexy to boot.  The chemistry between the two of them is enough to set water on fire. Add in a healthy dose of humor and ridiculousness, some mayhem, and some really cute kids, and you've got a book that won't be put down – so go pick it up now!"  — Cat's Thoughts "The Housewife Assassin's Handbook by Josie Brown is a fun, sexy and intriguing mystery. Donna Stone is a great heroine – housewives can lead all sorts of double lives, but as an assassin? Who would have seen that one coming? Certainly not those in Donna's neighbourhood. This book totally reminded me of the movie Mr & Mrs. Smith. Not that it is a copy of the movie, but that it has all of the thrills and enjoyment of the movie. It's a fast-paced read, the gadgets are awesome, and I could just picture Donna fighting off Russian gangsters and skinheads all the while having a pie at home cooling on the windowsill. As a housewife myself, this book was a fantastic escape that had me dreaming "if only" the whole way through. The book doesn't take itself too seriously, which makes for the perfect combination of mystery and humor…"  –Curled Up with a Good Book and a Cup of Tea "I thoroughly enjoyed Donna and Jack, their zeal for their missions and each other. James Bond doesn’t have anything on these two. Very entertaining." — Sandy M., The Good, The Bad, and The Unread "After reading this fantastic story, I immediately checked out Ms. Brown’s website to see what else she has written. I was so excited to see there is another The Housewife Assassin’s book!! I will be reading it next. I am in love with the main characters. And what an interesting twist at the end." — Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews PRAISE FOR JOSIE BROWN: "Josie Brown writes with all the secrets, sex, money and scandal of an OK! Magazine cover story. Her clever dialogue makes for truly entertaining reading."  —Jackie Collins “Brown proves that a story with suburban bodies can be just as suspenseful as one with dead bodies!  Loved it!”  —Stephanie Bond, author, OUR HUSBAND, and THE BODY MOVERS series "I loved it! Josie Brown captures the highs and lows of love, lust and marriage with heart wrenching  pathos. I'm recommending it to all my friends as the perfect beach read!"  —Lisa Rinna […]
