The Matanuska-Susitna Borough alleges the state-led Alaska LNG Project team has presented “numerous factual errors and willfully misleading statements” to federal regulators and failed to perform “a good faith and unbiased analysis” of borough land at Port MacKenzie for the proposed gas liquefaction plant and marine terminal. The borough filed 193 pages with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Sept. 14 supporting its property as a possible site for the multibillion-dollar investment and extensively rebutting information the Alaska Gasline Development Corp. presented to FERC in July. But more than just debating the site’s attributes — or detractions — the borough urged the commission “to refrain from further action” on the Alaska LNG Project. “FERC must not proceed with its review of AGDC’s application” until the state team “has presented a fair and accurate analysis of Port MacKenzie as an alternative … [Read more...] about Mat-Su Borough seeks ‘fair and accurate’ analysis of port site

The difference came when a judge said his priority was to help Carlisle, now 33, get clean and stay sober. "This was the first time I felt like anyone believed in me," Carlisle said Monday evening at the Utah Capitol, where he joined 40 other … [Read more...] about Salt Lake County drug court graduation caps off long path to recovery

A strange thing is happening in modern philosophy: many philosophers don’t seem to believe that there is such a thing as human nature. What makes this strange is that, not only does the new attitude run counter to much of the history of philosophy, but – despite loud claims to the contrary – it also goes against the findings of modern science. This has serious consequences, ranging from the way in which we see ourselves and our place in the cosmos to what sort of philosophy of life we might adopt. Our aim here is to discuss the issue of human nature in light of contemporary biology, and then explore how the concept might impact everyday living.The existence of something like a human nature that separates us from the rest of the animal world has often been implied, and sometimes explicitly stated, throughout the history of philosophy. Aristotle thought that the ‘proper function’ of human beings was to think rationally, from which he derived the idea that … [Read more...] about There’s no philosophy of life without a theory of human nature – Skye C Cleary & Massimo Pigliucci
