Trump, in France, Tells Brigitte Macron, ‘You’re in Such Good Shape’

Mr. Trump has repeatedly commented publicly on the physical appearance of women he has encountered either as a presidential candidate or as president — including the comedian Rosie O’Donnell and, now, the first lady of France.Continue reading the main storyLast month, Mr. Trump was criticized by members of both parties for attacking the cable news host Mika Brzezinski in a string of tweets, describing her as “low I.Q.

Iowa GOP Lawmaker: Rick Perry’s Involvement With Bakken Fracked Oil Pipeline ‘A Bad Idea’

Cross-Posted from DeSmogBlogBy David Goodner and Steve Horn Everyday Iowa voters are less likely to caucus for former Texas governor and potential presidential candidate Rick Perry “because of his involvement” with a controversial oil pipeline proposal, according to an influential state lawmaker who has made eminent domain one of his signature issues in the Iowa House of Representatives.Photo Credit: Iowa House Republicans”Politically speaking, I am not sure there is as much upside for him to be involved as there is downside,” Iowa state representative Bobby Kaufmann (R-Wilton) told DeSmogBlog. “People would likely not vote for him for being involved with the pipeline.” Last month, DeSmogBlog broke news that Perry’s appointment to the Board of Directors of Energy Transfer Partners (ETP) could cost him support in the Iowa Caucuses. Energy Transfer Partners is a Texas-based company whose subsidiary, Dakota Access, LLC, has petitioned the state of Iowa to build a pipeline to transport up to 575,000 barrels per day of oil obtained from North Dakota’s Bakken Shale via hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”). Kaufmann’s statement to DeSmogBlog marks the first public criticism of Perry on this issue by a sitting Republican lawmaker. It also comes on the heels of Perry’s scheduled March 7 return to Iowa to speak at the Iowa Ag Summit alongside other likely Republican presidential candidates.Kaufmann’s remarks to DeSmogBlog also come in the aftermath of Iowa’s paper of record, The Des Moines Register, releasing a poll finding that 74 percent of Iowans are opposed to the use of eminent domain to build the pipeline.”I think any presidential candidate’s association with eminent domain could be unhelpful” to them in the Iowa Caucuses, Kaufmann said. <!–break–>Signing on “a bad idea”Kaufmann is widely seen in Iowa as a rising young star in the Republican Party.He is most closely identified with the libertarian wing of the Party, but he took $1,500 in campaign contributions last year from Perry’s political action committee (RickPAC). Kelcy Warren, CEO of Energy Transfer Partners, serves on the RickPAC Advisory Board. Perry also campaigned for Kaufmann last year. “If I get the chance to talk to Governor Perry I will be sure to let him know I think signing on with [Energy Transfer Partners] was a bad idea,” Kaufmann stated via email.Kaufmann’s opposition to the proposed Bakken oil pipeline starts and stops with eminent domain, as the legislator has resisted taking a strong stance on climate change or the corrosive influence of big money in politics. “My concern is about eminent domain,” he said […]

Katy Perry Reportedly Spent Over $500,000 On Cars For Her Assistants

Katy Perry may be the best boss ever.

According to a report in the Daily Star, the singer dropped over half a million dollars on new cars for her five assistants. (Apparently, international superstardom requires a lot of planning and errands.)

Reportedly, the 29–year–old invested in five Fisker Karmas, each with a price tag of over $100,000. The sporty four–door sedans will help the star implement a greener lifestyle.

“They are completely electric and top of the range in car luxury but she hates the smog in the air in LA. In total she spent over half a million dollars on the cars and now her conscience is clean,” a friend of Perry reportedly told the Daily Star.

The Huffington Post has reached out to Katy Perry’s rep for a statement regarding the purchase.

Nuclear plant leak patched up near Lake Erie

Nuclear plant leak patched up near Lake Erie

NRC

A valve leak was discovered Monday at Perry Nuclear Power Plant in Ohio, causing the release of radioactive tritium into groundwater near Lake Erie. Fortunately, it was patched up by Wednesday, according to plant owner FirstEnergy Nuclear Operating Co. It’s not known when the leak sprung nor how much tritium it released.

Here’s more from the Cleveland Plain Dealer:

Engineering crews have repaired the reactor coolant leak at the Perry nuclear power plant that deposited an unknown amount of radioactive tritium in groundwater near the leak. …

Samples of water taken from a monitoring point in the under-drain system outside of the building revealed tritium, a radioactive isotope of hydrogen with a half-life of a little over 12 years. No heavier and more dangerous nuclear isotopes were found.

Other groundwater monitoring stations throughout the plant property showed no tritium, [FirstEnergy spokeswoman Jennifer] Young said.

The valve was repaired using a clamp and some sealant, and company officials say they are confident it will hold until next year, when a replacement is scheduled.

Tritium atoms are nothing like heavy uranium or plutonium atoms — they are among the tiniest and lightest molecules in the universe. But they can still be absorbed into animal tissue easily and cause cancer.
