The Salt Lake Tribune’s Robert Gehrke argues more practical options — including tolling, trailhead fees, parking reservations and a closer look at Little Cottonwood Canyon’s carrying capacity — should be given a true chance before a gondola is built in the canyon.
“Instead of laying that foundation for this work, we bought into an all-or-nothing choice between wider roads with buses or a gondola — both massive, incredibly expensive and ecologically irreparable solutions. And the gondola won out.”

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.

Living w/guns & people off-their-rocker.

I was the hostage in this incident. I was on my laptop looking up the latest trends for influnza on the @CDCgov site. The waiting room was crowded/coughing & I was the only one wearing a mask, ASTM Level III.
2/ They I remember thinking when I first walked in to the waiting room, "This is not where I want to be right now" almost every seat was taken, and most everyone was coughing. A sign read, it is the flu season, if you want a mask, ask for one. No one was wearing one...
3/ I might just be the one to break the ice and more people will start wearing them when it matters most. Honestly it felt awkward, but I got the mask and put it on.

It's no coincidence that the states eager to keep women from controlling their own reproduction also refuse to care for those women or their children.
Compare the states ready to ban abortion with a map of states that refused to expand #Medicaid.
The maps are overly simplistic in showing states' expansions of #Medicaid, and this thread will explain some of what's complicated.

In essence, many states led by #Republicans didn't want to expand a program that helps pregnant women, kids, and the frail elderly. Voters did.
Let's take those anti-abortion states that "have expanded Medicaid" in alphabetical order.

So, first, Arkansas.

#Arkansas led the way in requiring people on #Medicaid to work. Their unique plan also disenrolled people who didn't meet the work requirement.

Ready for the #CFB Analytics Spring Top 40? Here we go. This Power Ranking is derived from a model which utilizes full Coach Staff efficiency metrics, roster talent, & returning production among other metrics. No opinion here, I just regurgitate the numbers. #NoOpinionJustNumbers
40 #Kentucky #BBN #SEC Power Rating: 61.726
Returning Production for the Wildcats may be a problem. At 39.72%, it puts them at 113th in the country. The schedule is manageable tho drawing Ole Miss & Miss State out the West. #CFB
39 #Washington #PurpleReign #Pac12
Power Rating: 62.271
Really like the new coaching staff in Seattle. Should put them in a better position to win. Roster talent purge from the prev regime will have an early effect (last 2 classes were 39th, 86th) but the ship has been righted.

Alright #CFBPlayoff viewers. Lets go through this week's poll. Once again, it was, as it always has been, predictable. The model was off an average of 1 spot per team for the entire Top 25 poll this week. So let's take a look at some resumes shall we? #CFB 🧵
If you took a peak at this projection yesterday, you were prepared for alot of what you saw last night. The resumes are all laid out very similarly to the way the Playoff Committee views them. #ThereIsNoEyeTest
25 #HailState 6-4
SOS: 29, QW: 4, T25W: 2, GC: 3.3

Despite the horrible game control at 3.3, MSU snuck its way into the poll. They modeled at 26 so this isn't all that surprising. They are riding their good SOS, 4 QWs, and 2 T25Ws at this point. No surprise.

FLDS church, its bishop and a contractor ordered to pay nearly $1 million for making children work without pay for years.+
@CNN @hrw @UNHumanRights
@rihanna have you read about this?
Hope you consider this as a issue.
#ChildLabour #USA ImageImage
A federal judge in Utah ordered the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS) and two of its affiliates to pay nearly $1 million for allegedly violating child labor laws when they employed minors on a ranch without paying them for years.+
The decision comes after a 2012 video showed women and children working to harvest pecans at a farm in southern Utah. The US Department of Labor had filed a complaint, accusing bishop Lyle Jeffs and his business contractor, Brian Jessop, of illegally hiring the children.+ Image
