In August of last year, 21.6 million acres of the Gulf of Mexico were auctioned off to the dirty energy industry so that they could expand their offshore fracking activities.

As DeSmog's Steve Horn reported at that time, many of the leases sold by the government in August were located in the Lower Tertiary Basin, an area defined by hard-to-penetrate rock where the crude is located in deep water, making the practice of hydraulic fracturing exceptionally risky and prone to environmental disaster. It wasn't until the lease sale that the media - and the American public - became painfully aware of the fact that we know so little about what the industry is actually doing in the Gulf of Mexico. It was this lack of knowledge that led the Center for Biological Diversity to file a lawsuit against the government to compel them to release that info.

Yes, you read that right. Warrants have been issued for four people under suspicion of cheering for family and friends at a high school graduation.

Four people in Senatobia, Mississippi have been served with arrest warrants and are facing possible $500 fines and/or up to six months in jail - for cheering at a high school graduation ceremony. "They yelled out and they excessively celebrated during the calling of names," said Superintendent Jay Foster, who pressed charges afterwards on grounds of 'disturbing the peace'. "When you make a conscious decision to disrupt that for that individual, what is too harsh?" Is this a rhetorical question?

For many of us, homeopathy is one of those things we've heard of... but we might not be able to describe it, exactly.

Why are we talking about this? Well, the FTC will be hosting a free, public workshop on September 21, 2015, to take a closer look at advertising for over-the-counter homeopathic products. Because there are plenty of products, and plenty of ads for them. You can find the products in stores and pharmacies, on the shelf right next to conventional medicine - and you've probably seen the ads online or on TV.

For the first time in American history, that "over the last three months, spending at 'Food Services and Drinking Places' was $152.6 billion compared to $149.8 billion spent on food at grocery stores from February to April."

Millennials' embrace of the sector expanded the definition of organic foods and organic food retailing. From predominantly road-side stands at family farms, organic foods went main-stream with major chains like Wild Oats and Whole Foods. That, in turn, caused a general incentive shift for all grocery store chains to begin offering organic foods to capture higher sales revenue and significant profit margin improvement.

A former Pemberton Township police officer was sentenced Friday to three years of probation for endangering the welfare of a child in connection with inappropriate contact he had with an underage girl.

The victim, now 18, said Kreig's actions, which she claimed included penetration, kissing and touching, "violated" her "body, mind and soul." She claimed that she was only 11 when the sexual abuse started and that it lasted five years. Superior Court Judge Philip E. Haines sentenced Kreig to three years of supervised probation, part of a plea agreement reached with the state.

An NTSB spokesman said its four investigators were expected to be there through the weekend.

The Barbours are suing for their daughter's right to use medicinal marijuana in school, while attorneys for the Maple Shade school district say doing so would run afoul of the law because marijuana is still considered a controlled dangerous substance.t

It's prompted a landmark legal battle that could reverberate in New Jersey and beyond. The Barbours are suing for their daughter's right to use medicinal marijuana in school, while attorneys for the Maple Shade school district say doing so would run afoul of the law because marijuana is still considered a controlled dangerous substance by the federal government with no medicinal value.

IN 2011, residents across an American community in St Louis began to notice a chain of inexplicably high incidents of cancer and disease across its population.

For decades, both former and current residents from approximately 90 municipalities in the Missouri city were diagnosed with a long list of life-threatening illnesses, including leukaemia, lupus, brain tumours, appendix cancer, multiple sclerosis, birth defects and many more. People died. Babies died. And they're still dying to this day, dubbed "the poison children of Coldwater Creek."

You know what a pain those plastic engine covers are? How they get in the way and hide your own car's engine from you? Well, consider that black piece of molded plastic a metaphor for something much worse: the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

We all know that working on and tinkering with a modern car is a very different undertaking than it has been previously. It's no longer just about putting on a new manifold and dual carbs, modern cars involve many, many computers, and working on your car usually means working with and talking to the computers embedded in the car.
