Cooper Seller: Draft2Digital, LLC New Sexy Standalone from New York Times Bestselling Author Helen Cooper and JS Cooper It was only supposed to be one night We met at a wedding. He was hot. And I’d been in a year’s drought. He smiled.  We got drunk. We flirted. We hooked up. I left early the next morning without saying goodbye. It was only meant to be a one night stand. I didn’t want the awkward morning after moment. Not at all. Then I went home for the weekend. And he was there. Sitting on the couch chatting to my dad. Turns out he was more than just a stranger. Turns out that my one night stand was about to cause a whole heap of trouble. Turns out that it never just stops with one night. […]

One Night Stand – Mignon Mykel

One Night StandO’Gallagher Nights SeriesMignon Mykel Genre: Contemporary Publish Date: February 14, 2017 Publisher: Vasko Books Seller: Vasko Pty Ltd O’Gallaghers has been a long-lasting establishment in San Diego, known for its Irish brews and fare. When the next generation of O’Gallaghers took over, it became known for a little bit more… Conor O’Gallagher. Thirty-two, six-foot, and all muscle.

The women always leave satisfied, and always know he’s a one and done kind of guy, no repeat performances.

Obama’s Interior makes it easier to build renewable energy on public land in Trump era.

Protestors with forest advocacy group Stand erected a giant, cardinal-red coffee cup in Seattle’s Westlake Center on Thursday, pressuring Starbucks to make its holiday cups recyclable.

Starbucks has struggled with reinventing its disposable products for years. It aimed to make all of its cups reusable or recyclable by 2015, but that hasn’t happened yet.

The night before, Westlake Center had been the site of a large protest against Donald Trump, who promises to gut existing measures to fight climate change.

So why focus on cups? Stand’s U.S. Campaign Director Ross Hammond told us: “Where we can make change is forcing companies to do things they should be doing but don’t want to do.”

Patrons of the original Starbucks store in Pike Place Market — a few blocks from the protest — had a different take:

“I don’t know how we can go from the [Trump] protests last night … to protesting red cups,” said Steph K., 28, of Los Angeles. We have a national identity crisis, she said, and “this is what we’re talking about?”

Starbucks told Grist that it is “committed to reducing the impact of waste generated in our stores,” and that its cups are recyclable in some places, like Seattle, already.

Elected Officials Join the Call to Stop Oil Trains: 2016 #StopOilTrains Week of Action

This week people gather at 60 events across North America to mark the third anniversary of the Lac Megantic oil train disaster. Stand organizes the Stop Oil Trains Week of Action to help raise the voice of communities who oppose these dangerous, unnecessary trains. In 2016, elected officials joined our call for a stop to oil trains. Washington Governor Jay Inslee and Oregon Governor Kate Brown are challenging federal railroad officials on the safety of trains carrying millions of gallons of explosive, toxic crude oil. They join Oregon Senators Wyden and Merkley, Washington Senator Cantwell, and New Jersey Senator Booker on a long and growing list of state and local elected officials who understand that the oil trains rolling through American cities and towns are too dangerous for the rails. Or, in the words of New York Senator Chuck Schumer, a year ago, “a reckless gamble that we just can’t afford to make.” Concern about these dangerous trains spiked again following the June 3 derailment and explosion in Mosier, Oregon.

Canadian Logging Company Tries to Silence Critics with RICO Lawsuit

Can a lumber company sue its grassroots public interest critics to attempt to silence them? While many states and many courts say no, yesterday Resolute Forest Products filed a civil RICO lawsuit in United States District Court for the Southern District of Georgia. Incredibly, the suit complains that Greenpeace and Stand (formerly ForestEthics) have acted as a “criminal enterprise” in their public interest advocacy to stop destructive logging and protect waterways, wildlife, and communities in the Boreal forest of Canada. This is much more than a simple dispute between a logging company and environmental organizations, this lawsuit is a power play by a rogue corporation attempting to use financial might to make critics go away. It is about the role of corporations in society and their use and abuse of the legal system to erode free speech and our democracy. In America, people and groups of people have the right to speak out when others are harming our shared resources – our air, water, forests, and wildlife. This lawsuit is an attempt to muzzle individuals and the public interest groups they support, like ours, that operate to protect public health and the environment. Resolute Forest Products has a proven record of bullying, as well as years of irresponsible logging in the Boreal region of Canada. This company uses lawsuits as a business tactic to quiet public and legitimate criticism of their actions. In an attempt to stamp out free speech, Resolute is already suing critics of their environmental record in Canada. […]
