WASHINGTON – Canadian livestock producers were in a U.S. courtroom Monday fighting against labelling requirements blamed for having devastated their exports.

Their case invoked one of America’s most cherished principles: the free-speech guarantee in the First Amendment of the Constitution. The public gallery was filled as close to 200 people came to hear the argument in the U.S. Court of Appeals, the second-highest court in the country.

According to a coalition of industry groups from the three North American countries, foundational speech rights are violated when meat companies are forced to stamp, “Born in Canada,” or “Born in Mexico,” on their packaging.

They say country-of-origin labelling isn’t just costly, from a logistical standpoint. They say it also amounts to the government forcing them to divulge information, against their will and without justification, in breach of the principles espoused by America’s founding fathers.

The multiple parties with standing in the case were represented by a pair of attorneys: a federal lawyer who argued on behalf of the U.S. government, against an opponent who represented meat-industry groups.

The industry attorney argued that the rules are nothing more than protectionism, disguised as an attempt to help consumers learn about the origin of their food. She said the rules did not meet the standard set by past court cases about what corporations need to disclose.

“We’re here representing ranchers who are feeling a colossal impact,” said Catherine Stetson, arguing for the American Meat Institute and its Canadian-Mexican allies.

Uzbekistan President Islam Karimov meets NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen on a visit to Brussels in 2011. (photo: NATO)

NATO formally opened its liaison office in Uzbekistan on Friday, a year after it started working and amid heightened Russian rhetoric about the western alliance encroaching on its backyard.

The opening itself was not a big deal: it only formalized a move that happened last year, which was itself described by NATO officials as just a “rotation” of NATO’s representation in Central Asia from Astana to Tashkent. (NATO calls the new structure in Tashkent a “liaison office,” while the preferred phrase in the Russian-language press seems to be the much more impressive-sounding “staff headquarters.”) Nevertheless, the opening ceremony was held in a very different geopolitical atmosphere than obtained last year, and so it was inevitable that people would seek to try to figure out what it really meant.

Uzbekistan is unmistakably taking a different path than that of its neighbors. While Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Tajikistan are all (to varying degrees) participating in Russia’s economic and military integration schemes, Uzbekistan has resisted. And strategic concerns have overridden Western qualms about human rights, notes Tolganay Umbetaliyeva, the director of the Kazakhstan-based Central Asian Fund for the Development of Democracy. “In spite of the fact that after the Andijan events of 2005 relations between Uzbekistan and the West sharply deteriorated, their recent improvement can be seen as the West’s response to the various integration processes of the post-Soviet Central Asian states and Russia in various spheres,” she told RFE/RL.

Opposing Russia may be Tashkent’s interest, and it may be a nice side benefit for NATO, but NATO would likely be very little interested in Uzbekistan if it weren’t an important country for NATO and American military logistics for the war in Afghanistan. “The most important part of our cooperation remains the transit of cargo through Uzbekistan. And we are grateful to Uzbekistan for that,” said James Appathurai, NATO’s special representative for the Caucasus and Central Asia, at the opening ceremony.

And Appathurai, in an interview with RFE/RL, denied there was a geopolitical component to the office:

Appathurai said NATO’s partnership with Central Asian nations is not in competition with their relationship with Russia.

He said, “We are not here to compete with anyone or to pressure anyone to make any sort of changes to their political orientation.”

Moscow may not see it that way, said Kazakhstan analyst Daniyar Kosnazarov in a facebook post: “Moscow, of course, is likely to react strenuously to the news that a NATO headquarters will be in Uzbekistan. This will be explained, primarily, by the fact that Tashkent renounced its membership in the CSTO.” There doesn’t seem to have been any official reaction yet from Moscow; it also should be noted that just two years ago Russia itself allowed NATO to set up a transit hub in the city of Ulyanovsk, though it was never regularly used.

Uzbekistan’s official news agency Jahon naturally downplayed any geopolitical meaning and described the function of the office as “facilitating practical cooperation of the North Atlantic alliance with partners in the region in various directions, including defense planning and analysis, providing support to alliance operations, military education and preparation, civil emergency planning, cooperation on scientific and environmental issues, and public diplomacy.”

CANNON BEACH, Ore. — It just might be the biggest environmental crisis that most people have never heard about: tiny, contaminated pieces of plastic are polluting the worlds beaches.

Small plastics along the tide line of an Oregon beach may look like bits of shell, but they are, in fact, a pervasive form of pollution that scientists have discovered on nearly every ocean beach on Earth. Tracy Sund picks up small bits of plastic debris along the shore for the City of Cannon Beach, but he cant get to it all.

These pieces have been at sea a long time, he said holding a small plastic shard. The pieces keep fracturing off, getting smaller and smaller. They [can also] get ingested by wildlife.

The plastics dont biodegrade. The smallest shards, known as microplastics, can mesh unseen into beach sand and stay unnoticed for years.

A recent one-square-meter sample of sand taken from Fort Stevens State Park in Warrenton yielded 10 pounds of plastics.

Most microplastics on Oregon beaches are believed to come from what called is called the North Pacific Gyre, a giant whirling garbage dump in the Pacific, now bigger than that state of Texas. Its just one of five giant garbage fields swirling in the planets oceans.

Its been a few weeks since we made the announcement for the North American release of Freedom Wars, and were overwhelmed with all the positive comments weve been seeing! Today, wed like to dive deeper into the world of Freedom Wars on PS Vita.

In PT Era 102014, the earth has been devastated by atmospheric pollution and the world is running out of resources. Human beings can only survive inside purpose-built facilities known as Panopticons. City-states across the world fight each other to take control of what is left, using these Panopticons to take over other competing regions. You take on the role of prisoner in this Panopticon facility, subject to a million-year sentence.

When the story begins, the main character finds himself in a cell with no recollection of where or who he is. An Android, also referred to as an Accessory throughout the game, is sent to brief him on his fate. The Accessory tells the protagonist that he must fight massive Abductors to reduce his million-year sentence. Abductors are mechanic monsters that roam the earth, abducting citizens. Its the players duty to work with your Accessory and other players to rescue civilians and take one step closer to freedom.

After taking a look at a few screenshots, youre probably asking yourself how youll be able to overcome these massive Abductors. That brings us to the weapons

In Freedom Wars, players will be able to use variety of weapons such as Swords, Rifles and Machine Guns. However, the most unique and valued weapon is the Thorn that is wrapped around the players arm. The Thorn can be used to retrieve accessories, hook on to enemies or walls, move vertically, travel quickly by pulling the character to where the thorn has been attached, tie down Abductors, and more.

May 13, 2014 Denver, COLORADO The Colorado Freedom Memorial is proud to announce that Denver-based Furniture Row Racing will be honoring generations of Colorados fallen veterans when the No. 78 car competes in the 55th Annual Coca-Cola 600 this Memorial Day Weekend, with only the Colorado Freedom Memorial name emblazoned on its hood. The Colorado Freedom Memorial (CFM) honors every fallen Colorado military veteran by name, from every branch of service and every conflict dating back to the Spanish American War in 1896. The Memorial, which is located in Aurora, is made up of glass panels on which nearly 6000 Colorado heroes are honored. Donating the hood of our No. 78 Furniture Row Chevrolet SS to the Colorado Freedom Memorial is a small, but meaningful way that we can pay tribute to those who have offered the greatest sacrifice for our freedoms, said Furniture Row Racing Owner, Barney Visser. Visser, who is a Vietnam veteran, maintains a personal connection with the Colorado Freedom Memorial. Prior to the May 25 race, the Furniture Row Chevrolet will be unveiled at an event open to the public at the Colorado Freedom Memorial on Tuesday, May 20 from 4 6 p.m. The Memorial is located across the street from Buckley Air Force Base at Auroras Springhill Community Park: 756 Telluride St., Aurora, CO 80011. The tribute by Furniture Row Racing to the fallen veterans from their home state of Colorado is wonderful, said Colorado Freedom Memorial Founder and President Rick Crandall.

The Liberty Bridge in Downtown Pittsburgh will be a poster child of sorts in an advertising campaign designed to pressure Congress into passing a long-term transportation funding bill.

Laborers’ International Union of North America, based in Washington, D.C., will air a radio commercial noting the bridge is rated structurally deficient, as are one of every nine bridges in the nation.

It also plans to display a billboard near the bridge that says, “This bridge was built to last 50 years … in 1928.”

“The Liberty Bridge is a symbol of the neglect of our nation’s bridges,” LIUNA communications director Rich Greer said in an email. “Congress has several viable options to work with and has no excuse not to act to make our roads and bridges safer.

“Failing to act will cause further deterioration, making our transportation systems less safe and costing hundreds of thousands of jobs.”

While it may be a symbol, the Liberty Bridge will be rehabilitated whether Congress acts or not. The state Legislature passed a transportation funding bill in November that enabled the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation to schedule the start of an estimated $60 million project next year.

The bridge is showing signs of deterioration, including rust, and PennDOT lowered its weight limit to 30 tons last year, but officials repeatedly have declared it safe. It is inspected frequently, including in each of the last three months.

The LIUNA radio commercial will air on several Pittsburgh stations in June and July.

“The year was 1928 and Amelia Earhart became the first woman to fly a plane across the Atlantic Ocean,” it says. “In Chicago, Eliot Ness was heading up the infamous prohibition unit and Congress approved construction of the Hoover Dam … 1928 also marked the construction of Pittsburgh’s Liberty Bridge. Like so many bridges in our country, it was built to last 50 years and is now considered structurally deficient by the Federal Highway Administration.

“We don’t need another tragic bridge collapse like the one in Minneapolis. Congress has a responsibility to all Americans to invest in our vital infrastructure, and the time to act is now,” it says, urging listeners to visit to send messages to their senators and representatives.

Islands Background information Origin Montreal, Quebec, Canada Genres Indie rock, indie pop, art rock Years active 2005present Labels ANTI-, Rough Trade, Tomlab Associated acts The Unicorns, Th’ Corn Gangg, Small Is Beautiful, Juiced Elfers, Human Highway, Sister Suvi, The Magic, Mister Heavenly Website Members Nicholas Thorburn Evan Gordon Geordie Gordon Adam Halferty Past members Jim Guthrie Aaron Harris Kate Perkins Mike Feuerstack Jamie Thompson Patrice Agbokou Patrick Gregoire Sebastian Chow Alexander Chow Luc Laurent

Islands is an indie rock band formed in 2005 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, and currently based in Los Angeles, California.

In mid-2005 Islands recorded a debut album titled Return to the Sea, which was released in April 2006. The album was recorded in Montreal, Canada, at Breakglass Studio and in Jamie Thompson’s bedroom, and was produced by audio engineer/record producer Mark Lawson.

Return to the Sea was re-mastered in England for the European version of the album, and was released there by Rough Trade Records on April 3, 2006. In North America, the album was released on the upstart label Equator Records on April 4, 2006. The cover of the album is one of Caspar David Friedrich’s famous paintings, The Wreck of the Hope.

The album features numerous guest appearances, including members of Arcade Fire and Wolf Parade. Two songs, “Flesh” and “Abominable Snow”, were released to the public through The Simple Mission in June 2004, though neither appeared on the debut album. “Abominable Snow” had begun life as a song performed live by the Unicorns prior to their breakup.

Return to the Sea has been described by Nick as having “some dancehall influences, some calypso… It’s more diverse and sprawling and ambitious”,[1] and is “A bit more mature than The Unicorns… More of a Neil Young / Brian Wilson vibe running through it.” [2]

The band played various shows around the US and Canada throughout mid-late 2005, followed by an opening slot for Metric on their early 2006 tour. After Return to the Sea was released in April 2006, the band embarked on their first full headlining tour, playing small clubs around the US and Canada throughout May. They were joined by Cadence Weapon and Why? on the first half of the tour, and Cadence Weapon and Busdriver on the second. The band generally received critical acclaim for their live shows, which sometimes ended with the band leading the audience out of the venue “pied piper style” and onto the surrounding streets.

Positions in Islands consist of Nicholas Thorburn (main vocals, synthesizer, guitar), Aaron Harris (drums), Sebastian Chow (xylophone, violin), Alex Chow (synthesizer, violin), Patrick Gregoire (guitar, bass clarinet) and Patrice Agbokou (bass guitar).

On May 28, 2006, it was announced that Thompson would be leaving the band. He stated, “I’m just not sure that being in a successful band is all that important to me anymore. I’m not leaving because of any problems with people in the band. It’s very hard to do this, Nick and I have been creating together for quite a long time now… our relationship, both creative and personal is something that I will cherish for the rest of my life.” Of Islands’ future he said, “I think Islands is one of the best, if not the best band out there these days, and I have every confidence that they will do incredibly well.” This quote was displayed on the band’s website for a short time, before being taken down. Islands decided to continue on without Thompson, and a European tour was scheduled, and further recordings confirmed.

Diamonds commented upon Thompson’s departure, saying “Jamie has left Islands, but the band waltzes on! We wish Jamie the best in his new life. Islands are forever.”[3]

NATO is prepared for non-conventional warfare used by Russia to annex Crimea, Estonian Defense Minister Sven Mikser said.

The North Atlantic Treaty Organizations 1949 founding treaty can be effectively used to counter new threats and doesnt need to be revised, Mikser said in an interview yesterday in the Estonian capital, Tallinn. The former Soviet republic, which shares a border with Russia and has a Russian minority, has full confidence in the accords article that members consider an attack on one of them an attack on all.

The U.S. and its allies accuse Russia of fomenting unrest in Ukraines easternmost regions. While President Vladimir Putin has refrained from direct military intervention, he has vowed to defend Russian speakers. NATO members with such minorities, may not be prepared to counter new military threats from Russia based on events in Ukraine, according to Janis Berzins, head of the Center for Security and Strategic Research of the National Defence Academy of Latvia.

There was an element of surprise that these little green men surfaced in Crimea, said Mikser, 40, referring to unidentified gunmen wearing military uniforms who seized key installations on the Black Sea peninsula before Russia annexed it from Ukraine. I think this kind of surprise can be effectively used only once. We, or anyone, will be prepared to respond to a scenario like this.

In the run-up to the March referendum that paved the way for Crimea switching hands, the Kremlin denied military involvement beyond its naval base on the peninsula. Even so, Putin last month said Russian troops had ensured the safety of the vote. NATO estimates that the country has 40,000 soldiers stationed near the Ukrainian border.

Estonias military may lack rapid-reaction capabilities and needs to adjust to new threats based on evidence from the events in Crimea, Martin Hurt, deputy director of the International Center for Defense Studies in Tallinn, wrote in a report Apr. 17.

Russia has the ability to incite revolts and unrest on foreign soil while rapidly deploying military forces to aggravate and exploit the resultant political turmoil, Hurt wrote. This creates confusion in determining what countermeasures to resort to, leaving the country being attacked with minimal time to implement them.

Such new-generation warfare shows the need for a more comprehensive national-security strategy, Berzins of the Latvian defense academy wrote in a paper last month.

Estonia has already made such preparations, Riho Terras, the chief of the countrys armed forces, said at a conference in Tallinn on Apr. 26.

We have put a lot of emphasis in the last years to create units that are able to deal with unconventional threats, Terras said. The government needs to have clear crisis procedures and be legally prepared to take a swift decision to shoot and kill the first green man and the second one wont come.

Back in March, Future Islands and their charismatic frontman Samuel T. Herring set the blogosphere ablaze with their spirited, dance-infused “Late Show with David Letterman” performance. After that rendition of “Seasons (Waiting on You)” earned the praise of the veteran host and went viral, it’s no surprise “Jimmy Kimmel Live” came calling for round two — watch the performance from Monday night (May 5):

The synth-pop quartet played two more cuts from their excellent new album “Singles,” “Spirit” and “Doves.” Both came accompanied with new dance moves and pep talks from Herring.

Future Islands Talks Coldplay & Foo Fighters Love and Hitting Coachella Stage

“This song’s about digging deep down inside of yourself to find that little bit of flame,” Herring says while gesticulating to the crowd, about to dive into “Spirit.” “It’s always burning even when you’re hurtin’ real bad. And bringing that up to the surface, that’s your spirit, baby. You gotta nurture it. You gotta share it with yourself and the people around you. Make everything better.”

Their other performance, “Doves,” came with a plethora of new dance moves from Herring, who manages to toe the line between creepy and charming. There was some booty-shakin’ and some pelvic motion. During the choruses, he got the crowd to hop along in rhythmic unison, and like his first viral performance, there was plenty of chest-grabbing and crowd-pointing.

“Singles” debuted at No. 40 on the Billboard 200 albums chart last month. After Future Islands kicks off an European tour in London on Wednesday night, the band will return to North America for a string of dates beginning in August.

Liberty wins Class 3A 4×100 meter relay.

JACKSONVILLE Kissimmee Liberty needed something to brighten a dreary day, and they found it in their boys 4 x 100-meter relay team.

The Chargers got their first state champions Saturday afternoon during the Class 3A track and field meet at the University of North Florida when anchor Devarius Turner zipped past the finish line in 41.33 seconds. That concluded an undefeated run this season for the group of Justin Winkler, Joshua Wilson, Kyle Sharman and Turner

Liberty, which opened in 2007, entered the meet with a solid opportunity of finishing among the top three teams and possibly winning but the Chargers had some disappointing finishes during the preliminaries

“The wheels fell off the truck, but we put them back on,” Liberty coach Robert Pauley said. “It’s sure going to make the ride back home feel a little better with some medals dangling from our necks.”

Tallahassee Lawton Chiles won the boys meet with 38 points, Lake Nona tied for 10th with 19 points, and Liberty finished 12th with 17.

Miami Northwestern’s girls dominated the meet, winning with 154 points. Lake Nona finished in a three-way tie for 20th with nine points, and Edgewater was 23rd with eight.

Much of the meet was held in rainy, cool conditions, but the sun began to shine before Liberty took to the track for the 4 x 100.

Area highlights during the boys meet came from relay teams including Lake Nona’s 4 x 800-meter team, whose school-record time of 7:51.76 earned the Lions a silver medal. That showing is the 10th-fastest time ever by an area team and also the area’s fastest time of the season.

The Lions finished the meet with a fourth in the 4 x 400 (3:20.48).
