A new rule, applying the clean air act, required an air pollution permit from our state’s new army of EPA funded clean air regulators if they increased processing capacity over 5 yards per day. The cost of that new permit was $120,000 plus all the additional regulators and inspections now involved in the project, and would cause a delay of several months. No other modifications were needed, this was only for the cost of compliance. They opted not to install the improved fuel efficiencies. This resulted in using over 50,000 more gallons of fuel to accomplish the same job.

If the Broncos and Miller don’t work out a deal by July 15, his salary will be far from shabby ($14.129 million for 2016). The pay, however, isn’t the part that bothers me the most. It’s the lack of

The idea began with Benjamin Franklin, who thought shifting the time by an hour in the summer would prevent people from burning as many candles in the evening, as well as keep people from sleeping through precious morning sunlight. The United States finally
Attention getting device: Using sun protection was about as important to me as… …… In other words, it was the farthest thing from my mind. Then one weekend at a soccer tournament, I decided not to use sunscreen or any other sun protections and stayed outside in the sun all day without protection that left with me with a painful sunburn and blisters on my shoulders.

Students study hard and try their best to get that college acceptance letter from their dream college. Students all around the world are struggling with college debt and trying their hardest to receive those so-called ‘perfect’ grades.

The debate over whether or not college athletes should be paid has really heated up over the past couple of years. Imagine you are a college athlete; your typical daily routine would consist of an early wake up, an early morning practice, classes and tutoring sessions, and another practice or workout. Oh yeah, you have to fit in time for 4-5 meals to maintain energy throughout such an exhausting day.

Your skin gets red because the skin reacts immediately by increasing bloodflow to the area. After the burn the skin may turn red in maybe 30 minutes already, but it mostly takes 2 to 6 hours.
The coaches demanded more effort and time than I’d ever put into soccer before. Three times a week in the spring and fall were never enough, soon it became all year round with summer training camps and winter indoor leagues. Not to mention the hefty price tag that came with training. There was always room for improvement and that didn’t sit well with my perfectionist personality or my parents’ wallet. Moreover, my academics were beginning to suffer because school came second to soccer, leaving me to spend long nights and early mornings trying cramming in school work.
I moved from Fort Lauderdale, Florida to Washington, DC in the summer before the ninth grade and with that transition came four major obstacles that rocked my ecosystem which eventually negatively affected my grades freshman year. First, the move right before high school was a difficult time for me, because I had to restart my social life, and because of that, I spent the earlier parts of the school year reaching out and trying to make friends during times where I should have been working on assignments. Secondly, the rigor of Sidwell 's curriculum was hundreds of times more intense than that of my previous school. This was not just because I was making the leap from middle school to high school. But when I was at a school where I was a year
