Maine-based Hyperlite Mountain Gear is known for its high-quality, hand-crafted ultralight backpacking gear.The company works primarily with lightweight Dyneema fabric (formerly cuben fiber) and have become experts in creating equipment with this durable, waterproof material.After expanding its lineup to include shelters, packs and stuff sacks, Hyperlite is broadening its scope again introducing the new Dirigo 2 tent, the company’s first self-contained, three-season, two-person backpacking shelter.The Dirigo 2 is the result when a group of outdoors enthusiasts and Dyneema experts decide to build something different.Not only does the tent use Dyneema sourced in the US, but it also is constructed with five different Dyneema Composite Fabrics.Dyneema is a 100 percent waterproof fabric and is regarded to be among the strongest man-made fibers in the world.
The move was an effort to halt a deluge of soiled and contaminated materials that was overwhelming Chinese processing facilities and leaving the country with yet another environmental problem—and this one not of its own making.In the year since, China’s plastics imports have plummeted by 99 percent, leading to a major global shift in where and how materials tossed in the recycling bin are being processed.Communities from Douglas County, Oregon to Hancock, Maine, have curtailed collections or halted their recycling programs entirely, which means that many residents are simply tossing plastic and paper into the trash.“We’ve seen increased cost to consumers, closure of recycling facilities, and ultimately decreased plastic waste diversion.”The recycling crisis triggered by China’s ban could have an upside, experts say, if it leads to better solutions for managing the world’s waste, such as expanding processing capacities in North America and Europe, and spurring manufacturers to make their products more easily recyclable.And that’s not turning around in the next few weeks.”
A YouTuber arrested on Sunday by Mountain View, California police for suspicion of threatening Google drove all the way from Waterville, Maine – a cross-country 3,000 mile trip – to confront staff for allegedly terminating his account on Google subsidiary YouTube – unaware that it was actually his spouse who deleted it, BuzzFeed News reported on Tuesday.According to BuzzFeed, Kyle Long, 33, has “had a history of mental health issues.” He was diagnosed with bipolar disorder after he was convicted in the 2002 death of his friend, Michael Butler, in an intoxicated driving incident that NBC News reported landed him a five-year prison sentence.Another incident in 2015 reportedly involved a slow-speed police pursuit on an interstate, his father Kevin Long told BuzzFeed.Samantha Long, Kyle Long’s spouse, told BuzzFeed that she had deleted the account – to which he had posted just one “rambling” and “bizarre” get-rich-quick guide – out of concern for him, later pointing the finger at YouTube because she “didn’t want him losing his shit in front of my kids.” During the cross-country trip, Waterville police, as well as an Iowa State Patrol trooper who had seen Kyle Long while he was travelling, reported concerns about his statements to the Mountain View Police Department.BuzzFeed wrote that while Mountain View police did not identify a specific threat against Google staff, they allege the man had made nonspecific threats alluding to violence in the event his account was not restored:“He had good intentions – he wanted to solve world hunger and this and that,” Kevin Long said of his son, who he said was convinced his video would solve the world’s problems.
A man was arrested this past Sunday after showing up to Google’s Mountain View, Calif. headquarters and threatening violence over his belief that YouTube had deleted his account and the single video he had posted to it, BuzzFeed News reported today.Unfortunately for the man, 33-year-old Kyle Long, it was actually his wife who deleted the account.She then told him it was likely YouTube’s doing because she feared how he might react.Not only that, but Long had driven more than 3,300 miles, from Maine, to Mountain View on his mission, despite YouTube’s headquarters being located in nearby San Bruno.Long’s video was apparently some type of get-rich-quick guide, a video his father, Kevin Long, characterized as “rambling” and “bizarre.” According to the father, Long has a history of mental illness and run-ins with the police, stemming his father thinks from a drunk driving accident in his teens that took the life of a close friend.“She [his wife] told him Google or Facebook must have took it down because you can’t put stupid shit on there.” According to his father, Long thought his video would solve the world’s problems.
Police in California say they have arrested a man who made threats against Google and traveled across the country to confront the company.Kyle Long, 33, was arrested Sunday near the company's headquarters in Mountain View.Long, of Waterville, Maine, was upset that Google had shut down his YouTube channel, costing him money, Mountain View police said Monday.Mountain View police said they first learned of Long on Friday from Iowa police after he was involved in a non-injury car crash and vandalized a gas station restroom a short time later.Employees at the gas station declined to press charges, and the crash's circumstances didn't warrant Long being detained, police said.Waterville police notified Mountain View police on Sunday that Long was in California and that he had threatened physical violence if his meeting with Google didn't go well, Mountain View police said.
A variety of Republican Party messaging websites has been popping up, styled after local news sites.Politico has been chronicling the appearance of these sites, and an investigation from Snopes published last week reveals GOP funding sources for three similar sites: The Tennessee Star, The Ohio Star, and The Minnesota Sun.Democrats lodged an ethics complaint, but the party official, Jason Savage, said his work on the website was not related to his work for the party.The Maine Ethics Committee declined to investigate the Democratic Party's complaint, but recent news of leaked emails that were passed to Savage and the Maine Examiner during the election could reopen the possibility of an investigation.The tactic marks an aggressive shift in how politically motivated information is distributed.California's Devin Nunes, a Republican US Representative, tried a similar tactic in recent years.
Everyone on the internet loves cats, so it's no doubt good news for Londoners that a major cat festival is coming to the Tobacco Dock in East London this May.LondonCats, as it's inventively called, is apparently the biggest cat expo in Europe and the first event of this type in the UK.A Street Cat Named Bob author James Bowen and Bob (that's Bob above in the scarf)An international cat show with over 200 competitors and 7 judging ringsCool kitty breeds including the Bengal, British shorthair, Maine coon, sphynx, lykoi (werewolf cat), American curl and ToygerCisco Systems co-founder Sandy Lerner reading excerpts of her book ‘Caticons: 4,000 Years of Art Imitating Cats'
The 2017 vote had repealed the order that prohibited blocking, throttling, or otherwise discriminating against lawful content, and opened the door for internet service providers to block or throttle content at their own discretion.Today's bill, proposed by Senator Edward Markey (D–Massachusetts) and Representative Mike Doyle (D–Pennsylvania), would restore the 2015 protections and would bar the FCC from repealing the rules again.The bill is similar to legislation passed by the US Senate in 2018, when three Republicans—senators Susan Collins of Maine, John Kennedy of Louisiana, and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska—crossed the aisle and joined Senate Democrats and Independents in a 52–47 vote to preserve net neutrality.After the legislation passed the Senate, the then-Republican-controlled House never voted on the proposal.But let’s say the Senate Dems win over additional Republican support and don't lose any votes among their own ranks.The concept of net neutrality has picked up popular support from both Republican and Democratic voters, with some Republicans positioning themselves as supporters of the idea.

In a damning statement, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra said the president “treats the rule of law with utter contempt” and he will “likely lose this case in court”.In sum, President Trump is being accused of acting illegally and using his executive powers to push ahead with a pet project many are opposed to.Crucially, he did not secure the $5.7bn (£4.4bn) he had demanded for his signature campaign promise, instead getting only $1.4bn (£1.08bn) to increase patrols and reinforce existing structures along the border.The president painted illegal immigration and drug trafficking across the border as a national security threat.Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Virginia, and Michigan joined California in the lawsuit, Reuters reports.The states said Trump’s order would cause them to lose millions of dollars in federal funding for national guard units dealing with counter-drug activities and redirection of funds from authorised military construction projects would damage their economies.

Delaware has become the fifth state to pass a state statute requiring sexual harassment training, joining California, Connecticut, Maine, and New York.On August 29, 2018, Delaware Governor John Carney signed into law HB 360, which amends the Delaware Discrimination in Employment Act (DDEA).
Stephen King published his bestselling novel, Pet Sematary, 35 years ago, and it has definitely stood the test of time.Staunch King fans know the basic plot by now: a doctor named Louis Creed (Jason Clarke) moves his family from the big city (Chicago in the book, Boston in the 2019 film) to a charming small town in Maine.The new house is right by a busy highway on one side and bumps up against a forest in back.So many local pets meet their demise on the highway that the children have set up a "Pet Sematary" in the forest to bury their beloved animals.Louis' daughter Ellie (Jeté Laurence) discovers the site while walking in the woods.But their new neighbor Jud Crandall (John Lithgow) warns that the cemetery abuts an ancient cursed burial ground.
Fido and Fluffy aren't your friends in the new full-length -- and pretty spoiler-y -- trailer for the new film adaptation of Stephen King's Pet Sematary, released Thursday.Check out the trailer below, but we warn you, it gives a few things away.In this version of Pet Sematary, much as in the original 1983 film, a mysterious burial ground hidden deep in the woods "unleashes an unfathomable evil with horrific consequences."Dr. Louis Creed (Jason Clarke) relocates from Boston to rural Maine with his wife Rachel (Amy Seimetz) and their two young children.Louis discovers "a charming little landmark" -- a strange burial ground hidden near the family's new home.And when tragedy strikes his family, Louis turns to his unusual neighbor Jud Crandall (John Lithgow) for help.

At the moment, temperatures in Chicago are lower than both Alaska and Antarctica.And signs of the bitter cold are all around — most notably surrounding the Chicago River, which is currently "smoking" and starting to freeze over while in the powerful polar vortex's grip.Aerial views of the Windy City reveal a large portion of the river is covered in chunks of ice and giving off swirling sea smoke, also known as "steam fog" when it occurs over freshwater lakes or rivers.However, it's important to note that fog technically occurs when warm air meets cold water."That 'smoke' actually is water vapor that forms when really cold air moves over relatively warmer water and the thin boundary layer of warm air just above the surface," Sea Grant at the University of Maine previously explained in a paper.VIRAL PHOTO OF CHICAGO INMATES SHOVELING IN FREEZING WEATHER SPARKS OUTRAGE AS JAIL OFFERS EXPLANATION
The newly minted social media star congresswoman is wasting no time in tearing into tech companies.In a recent letter, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez joined Maine representative Chellie Pingree in calling out tech companies for supporting an event they believe to be inconsistent with big tech’s ostensibly climate-friendly attitude.Ocasio-Cortez is a noted champion of a Democratic package of sweeping environmental reforms called the Green New Deal — a term we can expect to hear a lot more leading into 2020.The letter, addressed to Microsoft’s Satya Nadella, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Google’s Sundar Pichai, expresses that the representatives were “deeply disappointed” to see that these companies sponsored a recent D.C. conference that featured a talk “denying established science on climate change” at a recent libertarian conference called LibertyCon.LibertyCon appears to have hosted at least one group on the wrong side of the scientific consensus around climate change.That group, the CO2 Coalition, reportedly promoted the “good news” about carbon emissions with handouts promoting the supposed positive effects of the noxious gases on agriculture.
Crescent Moon has been making snowshoes for more than twenty years now, and has grown from a garage-based business to a world-class manufacturer and industry leader.In 2017, the company surprised everyone when it strayed from its traditional aluminum snowshoes and debuted the Eva All-Foam snowshoe.Fast forward one year and the company is now selling a new and improved version — which we’ve been dying to try out ever since release day.The first thing that struck us was that the Eva All-Foam V2 snowshoe is rock solid in its construction.The foam deck is extremely durable, and the straps that hold in your boots are not only quite rugged, but also firmly embedded into the foam matrix so they won’t pull out if you snag your snowshoe on a branch or take an unexpected fall.The bottom of the deck is equally impressive, with a tire-tread like pattern on the bottom and studs for added grip.
The giant spinning ice disc of Westbrook, Maine has some stiff winter-phenomenon competition from Niagara Falls.A prolonged streak of frigid temperatures along the border of the US and Canada has left parts of Niagara Falls State Park in New York fantastically frozen.The park posted a Facebook video tour of the scenery on Tuesday showing a layer of snow and ice all around the rushing water at the top of the falls.The park included a one-word caption: "Frozen."Visitors to the falls are reveling in the exotic sights.Instagram user Inge Groot reported a temperature of -25 Celsius (-13 Fahrenheit) in a post on Monday showing a snow-covered view of the Canadian side of the falls.
We’ve all been tempted at some purpose by those extraordinary online casino bonus supplies that offer huge amounts of money away to those willing to require up the offer.Casino bonuses are a cornerstone of the net casino business and just about each new UK slot sites has a minimum of one supply for new players also as many for their existing players.Whereas several players, particularly newer ones, can merely ignore these and go straight for the bonus supply, we’re about to show you specifically why this is often a foul plan.Why You Must Never Ignore ReadingTerms and Conditions {or just or merely} simply T’s & C’s are present and accompany all kinds of supply on and off the net that you will consider.One of the biggest areas of grievance on just about any online casino forum or arbitration web site, is “The casino refused to pay Maine my winnings!” or one thing on those lines.
