President Barack Obama on Friday rejected TransCanada’s application to build the Keystone XL pipeline, which would have transported oil across the United States-Canada border.

After seven years of reviewing the project, Obama announced his decision from the Roosevelt Room in the White House.

“The State Department has decided that the Keystone XL pipeline would not serve the national interest of the United States,” he said. “I agree with that decision.” 

Tensions over the proposed pipeline had been high for years, with Obama’s environmental base pressuring him to reject the project — citing its impact on emissions — and Republicans in Congress voting repeatedly to force its approval, citing the economic boost it would provide.

Obamacare Is Barely Denting Corporate Profits

The biggest entitlement legislation in a generation is causing barely a ripple in corporate America.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act — otherwise known as Obamacare — is putting such a small dent in the profits of U.S. companies that many refer to its impact as “not material” or “not significant,” according to a Bloomberg review of conference-call transcripts and interviews with major U.S. employers.

That’s even after a provision went into effect this year requiring companies with 50 or more full-time workers to provide coverage, and after more workers are choosing to enroll in existing company coverage because of another requirement that all Americans get insured.

Naomi Klein: Addicted To Risk

Looking at photos from the November spill, so eerily similar to the photos from BP’s April 2010 spill in the Gulf of Mexico, it’s clear we are still looking for energy in risky places, and largely unprepared to deal with the consequences of failure. One year after the BP spill (which workers soaked up, in large part, with straw bales), the X Prize Foundation announced winners of a million-dollar incentive to develop new tools to clean up oil spills: And many others are looking at this problem too, including one of TED’s Senior Fellows, Cesar Harada. Harada is an inventor — of a staggering number of kinds of things. One of them is the Open_Sailing project, a group of inventors and scientists building open-source hardware and software to explore and study the ocean.

Am avut revelaţia că în afară de Dumnezeu nu există adevăr. Mai multe adevăruri, zic eu, raportate la Dumnezeu, este egal cu niciun adevăr. Iar dacă adevărul este unul singur, fiind transcendent în esenţă, sediul lui nu e nici în ştiinţă, nici în filozofie, nici în artă.– Petre Țuțea
