California Mutual Assistance Program


In years past California Mutual Assistance Program and emergency response for fighting fires learned a valuable lesson. They learned that fires get big quick and it is important to use all available resources to prevent the wide spread damage that can occur.

Environmentalism and Roads in Our Forests


Many environmentalists are against roads through the forest because it could disrupt wildlife, hunting areas for other mammals. They also worry about the affect on all the species living there.

Fire Fighting and Healthy Forests


There is debate about the methodology of forestry and also debate on Global Warming and the disappearance of our natural resources on the surface, namely forests and Rain Forests. Last year the Alaska Fire burned over 280,000 acres in the very first day and it continued to grow as all big fires do.

May Day, May Day


Down The Bush and BlairBy now everyone, except us, is pissed and the party continues even though it's well past closing time. For as happens a few times a year in Britain it's a bank holiday tomorrow, an antiquated and wonderful excuse to turn Sunday into Saturday and Monday into Sunday, even though it's actually May Day (the first) today.

The Worlds Eldest Democracy Was A Truly Romantic Affair


Visible remnants of the world's eldest democracy can be seen in a town in the Carantania region in what is now Austria, where during the early Middle Ages, the tribal society of a Slav people managed to live for over 100 years without being invaded and out of sheer happiness invented a democratic system. They did not call it a democracy but the word invented later was taken directly from their example.

US Social Security - Is President Bush A Robin Hood After All?


The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development issued a report Monday that pointed out that even though the US proposals will yield a system that reaches the poor in a more redistributive way than many other countries, the average pay outs of the government pensions are rather low at around 51% of a retiree's previously earned salary as compared to over 70% in other OECD countries.Only New Zealand and Ireland outperform the US in reaching its poorest nationals because they have simple flat-rate state pensions.

Democracy, War and the Media - Uneasy Bedfellows All Round


Recent international wars and the often spectacular ways in which the established media is covering them, have given media researchers ample opportunity to see whether technological developments are giving us the opportunity to have a closer experience of democracy.It is logical to assume that new technology empowers us all.

Public Utilities, Monopolies and Problematic Structures


Public utilities and a problematic issue on the allowance of profits. We all know that if you are only allowed to make 15 percent profit as in the case of Utilities Companies then why not spend more money so you can make 15 percent go up.
