How Much Water is Available?

cropped-TSON.jpg

Now we can start to answer the question, how much water is available to humans? Do you notice that tiny blue speck over Atlanta, Ga.? That’s the bubble representing freshwater in all the lakes and rivers on the planet. Most of the water that people and ecosystems need every day comes from these surface-water sources. The diameter of this sphere is a mere 34.9 miles, with a volume of a little over 22,000 cubic miles… Via USGS Buy Three Sonorans a coffee! Become a sustaining member for just $5/month!

Cunningham is accountable to taxpayers, TREO also

cropped-TSON.jpg

But Cunningham isn’t the only one with a disappointing response to this episode. The junket was sponsored by Tucson Regional Economic Development. Some local officials attended on the taxpayers’ dime, while others were hosted by TREO, a local agency that is funded with a mix of private and government dollars. In fact, TREO received $936,000 in public money for 2012. This significant taxpayer connection means TREO has an obligation to explain the circumstances surrounding what happened. For instance, was there an open bar, and if so, who paid the tab? Joe Snell, who heads TREO and is paid $313,000 annually, […]

Over the course of her career, “Payday Ann” Kirkpatrick has taken $8600 from Mario Diaz, the number one payday-loan lobbyist in Arizona. We all remember how badly the Democratic Party vilified both Republican Jonathan Paton and Democrat Joe Flores, for their ties to the payday-loan industry, dubbing them “Payday Paton” and “Payday Joe.” Will the Democratic Party do the same to “Payday Ann?” Buy Three Sonorans a coffee!

cropped-TSON.jpg

This story was first reported on the Three Sonorans Sunday night. It’s all baloney according to Cunningham… so what did Paul apologize for, and was he so drunk that he really “couldn’t remember” what happened? Oh yeah, and there’s that whole issue of all those witnesses, including powerful city of Tucson employees… Cunningham has acknowledged he had been drinking and may have behaved inappropriately on a taxpayer-funded economic development junket two weeks ago — behavior he said he couldn’t remember a few days later when he called several top community leaders to apologize. via AZ Daily Star.

cropped-TSON.jpg

If police indeed found Isabel’s blood in her bedroom, it will be weighed in light of the testimony of her father and mother, Sergio and Rebecca Celis, who claimed that Isabel did not sleep in this bedroom, but with her brothers, one of whom is a teenager. The “abductor” not only got in and out without being heard, nor leaving behind DNA, but the abductor chose the only night in which Isabel was in her own bedroom.
