Mueller Seeks White House Documents on Flynn

The line of questioning shows that Mr. Mueller’s inquiry has expanded into a full-fledged examination of Mr. Flynn’s financial dealings, beyond the relatively narrow question of whether he failed to register as a foreign agent or lied about his conversations and business arrangements with Russian officials.Mr. Flynn lasted only 24 days as national security adviser, but his legal troubles now lie at the center of a political storm that has engulfed the Trump administration. For months, prosecutors have used multiple grand juries to issue subpoenas for documents related to Mr […]

California Today: California Today: Baby Falcons Take Flight in Berkeley

Last month, I moved with my family to Los Osos. We discovered the small coastal town after starting a house search in San Luis Obispo, the popular college town about 10 miles away, and then looked outward.Los Osos, population roughly 14,000, is surrounded by natural beauty. There’s Morro Bay, a playground of sea otters also known as the Gibraltar of the Pacific; the Elfin Forest, a sand dune landscape of miniature California live oaks; and Montana de Oro State Park, a jewel of the Central Coast.At the 12-square-mile park, hiking and biking trails open up to panoramas of rugged coastline every bit as spectacular as those in Big Sur.Yet the name Los Osos commonly elicits blank stares from Californians in other parts of the state.Antoinette Payne, a longtime real estate agent on the Central Coast, suggested that nearby cities like Pismo Beach and Cayucos enjoy greater recognition simply because, unlike Los Osos, they are visible from Highway 101 or the Pacific Coast Highway.“One of the nice things about Los Osos is that it’s kind of off the main track,” she said.That got us wondering: What are California’s other little-known treasures? It can be anything — a city, a beach, a park, a landmark.Tell us at [email protected], and please include your full name and city of residence.

No, Palm Oil Is Not Responsible For 40% Of Global Deforestation

Victor Baron, Cirad; Alain Rival, Cirad, and Raphael Marichal, CiradA little over a month ago, Indonesia’s Environment and Forestry Ministry sought to extend a moratorium on issuing new licenses for using forest and peatland in the country for two years.Indonesia faces a massive ecological issue as its forests are rapidly disappearing and palm oil has been blamed for it. Indeed, the palm oil industry symbolizes tensions between the urgent need to preserve natural spaces and the necessary support for economic development in the global South.Palm is an exceptional oleaginous crop with an unequaled oil yield per hectare. It produces an abundant and inexpensive multi-purpose oil, which is sought by both the agro-food and biofuels industries.When properly developed and managed, palm oil plantations can play an important role in improving livelihoods and eradicating poverty in the tropics’ rural areas.
