Maria Shine Stewart SOUTH EUCLID, Ohio -- Hold on tight in the event that it is a bumpy ride on ground and through the clouds for some of us during the next few weeks. Holiday plans. End-of-year medical appointments. Family get-togethers and, in some cases, tensions. Think of Santa up there without anything to soothe motion sickness! And the swift changes of direction his sleigh must navigate, those snug squeezes through chimneys, and beating fast and faster delivery services with old-fashioned lists and brawny reindeer. Does your life over winter holidays involve such rushing, deft moves and diligence -- all while remaining hale and jolly and avoiding fashion malfunction? But there is no need for superhuman traits, really, as the Solstice, and Christmas, and Kwanzaa, and New Year's draw near. Being human is enough for us to strive for .. and includes awareness that the job requires one to fully in hale and exhale, avoid holiday meltdowns, and cut everyone in your world -- … [Read more...] about Appreciation and achievement form a great combination: Sun Messages

Nation and World News By Associated Press | Wednesday, July 25, 2018, 12:05 a.m. Share this story Toronto shooter’s neighbors unaware of his mental illness TORONTO — Ashley Robinson saw Faisal Hussain almost every day when she walked her dog on the winding sidewalk near her high-rise apartment building in Toronto. ADVERTISING “He always was smiling,” she said, adding they lived in the same building in Thorncliffe Park, a 21-story gray building that’s home to immigrants and Canadians alike. The tall man from floor seven made a point to pet Robinson’s low-slung lab-heeler mix named Dax and would often remark that he was a good dog. “A lot of people here are afraid of my dog, but he wasn’t.” Robinson didn’t know Hussain’s name until Monday, when she saw video of him on the news. His lanky body was clad in black. His arm calmly raised a handgun on people as they strolled in Toronto’s … [Read more...] about Nation and World briefs for July 25
Sections SEARCH Skip to content Skip to site index Subscribe Log In Feature Attracted by lax regulations, industrial agriculture has descended on a remote valley, depleting its aquifer — leaving many residents with no water at all. Homes in the Sulphur Springs Valley in Arizona stand just outside a corn field with a large irrigation system. Credit Lucas Foglia for The New York Times Supported by ByNoah Gallagher Shannon July 19, 2018 Early one morning in July 2014, Lori Paup awoke in her new home in the Sulphur Springs Valley of Arizona and began unpacking boxes of clothes, hanging photographs and prepping the day’s home-schooling lessons for her two teenage children. Paup, who until a few days earlier had never been to Arizona, was exhilarated to have finally arrived at the house on East Hopi Drive — a blue two-bedroom trailer on two acres of land — but also exhausted. The move from Fallentimber, Pa., where … [Read more...] about The Water Wars of Arizona
Debbi Moore For the Sun-News Published 6:00 p.m. UTC Jul 17, 2018 In the heat of every summer, many of us find the time to escape the high temperatures by planning vacations, or "holiday" as they call it in Europe, to cooler areas. I can totally relate to this scenario, as we have just returned from a wonderful trip to Colorado. Yes, temperatures were cooler, the days went by way too quickly and stress seemed far away. The whole purpose of taking a vacation is to relax, enjoy new scenery and to get a new perspective on our work environments. In the world we live in, however, do we really, really get away? Like most of you, we take our cell phone everywhere, even on vacation, to stay on top of emails and calls from the office. We never become "unplugged," do we? I’m as guilty as the next person … just ask my family! After thinking about the proverbial “vacation,” I began to think about those … [Read more...] about Maybe you can’t unplug on a vacation, but you can recharge

The headquarters of Huawei Technologies, the world’s largest maker of telecommunications equipment, sprawls across two square miles in the global manufacturing megalopolis of Shenzhen, China. At the center of its campus, surrounded by hulking office buildings of red brick and gray stone, sits a meticulously landscaped artificial pond. On the day I visited, two black swans glided across the water—fitting omens for the trajectory of Chinese technological power. Most Americans have never heard of Huawei (pronounced HWA-way), but the company operates in 170 countries, employs 180,000 people, and in 2017 had revenue of $92 billion. These days it’s leveraging its telecom experience to corner what it sees as the next big thing: solar energy. The company’s main solar product is a suitcase-sized device called an inverter, which changes the direct current, or DC, that a solar panel produces into the type … [Read more...] about Solar Is the Future.
