Profiting from death?
Have you heard about "dead peasant" insurance policies. About one quarter of Fortune 500 corporations take out life insurance on their employees without telling them. The companies benefit by tax write offs while employees live and policy payouts when employees die. The families of the deceased get nothing. More...
Precarious Lives -- article by Paul Rogat Loeb
"Advice to Retirees: Embrace the future," syndicated columnist Tad Bartimus recently wrote in my local Seattle paper. Sounds good, but for Bartimus the future was a layoff, in a corporate cutback, from a 25-year career at the Associated Press news service. Faced with the Hobson’s choice of agreeing to it or losing all health care access and pension benefits, she suddenly had to find ways to reinvent herself and survive, with less than half of her previously promised pension.

Community Right-to-Know About Toxics Under Attack
For almost 20 years the Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) has provided communities with vital information to monitor and reduce industry and other facilities’ release of toxic chemicals into the environment. Such information has been essential in protecting our and other species’ health, safety, and ecosystems. The EPA is now proposing to dramatically reduce such information. More...
Ed Cohen Ends Campaign for Congress
On December 8, Ed Cohen announced he is ending his campaign to challenge Chris Chocola's seat in Congress. Since Cohen was running as a Democrat, Joe Donnelly is now the sole candidate in the primary election. The Cohen for Congress executive committee is looking for someone to replace Ed since our district needs a progressive candidate. Joe Donnelly is not a progressive. However, Donnelly is known and favored by the Democrat Party at the local and state levels. Read Ed's letter to his supporters.

The Latest from the "Buy Nothing Team"
"Something exciting is happening that we wanted to share with you. Many jammers are planning to meet up at a screening of 'WAL-MART: The High Cost of Low Price' between now and next Friday. It's a great way to get to know each other, and with 7000 screenings around the world -- many of them free -- there's bound to be one in your neck of the woods. Go to the Walmart Takedown action center at AdBusters and find the closest screening. After you've watched the film, brainstorm with other jammers and come up with a plan for November 25, Buy Nothing Day."
Avoiding the Next Train Wreck
The "train wreck" now facing the electronics industry -- owing to many companies’ failure to keep up with increasing global requirements for environmental performance -- was completely avoidable. It raises concerns about the level of fiduciary duty exercised by business leaders who should have done a better job of seeing it coming, and of preventing it.
Many CEOs remain naďve about evolving environmental concerns in the global market coming from both governments and from leading companies. They have acted as though these market demands would go away, or get delayed, or that they would somehow be exempted. They have assumed that compliance would add costs, rather than provide an opportunity to deliver better a price/performance ratio to customers and to defend or even gain market share. More...

Brad Blog exclusive - "A DIEBOLD INSIDER SPEAKS! DIEB-THROAT : 'Diebold System One of Greatest Threats Democracy Has Ever Known' Identifies U.S. Homeland Security 'Cyber Alert' Prior to '04 Election Warning Votes Can be 'Modified Remotely'"
"In exclusive stunning admissions to The BRAD BLOG some 11 months after the 2004 Presidential Election, a 'Diebold Insider' is now finally speaking out for the first time about the alarming security flaws within Diebold, Inc's electronic voting systems, software and machinery. The source is acknowledging that the company's 'upper management' -- as well as 'top government officials' -- were keenly aware of the 'undocumented backdoor' in Diebold's main 'GEM Central Tabulator' software well prior to the 2004 election. A branch of the Federal Government even posted a security warning on the Internet." More...

Scientists fear that the Arctic has now entered an irreversible phase of warming which will accelerate the loss of the polar sea ice that has helped to keep the climate stable for thousands of years."

Makes you think twice about the Tondu power plant and the additional carbon dioxide it would emit. Think globally, act locally.
Council Puts Tondu Vote on Hold
The St. Joseph County Council voted 6-3 to put postpone the vote on the proposed Tondu power plant until September 22. That's the good news.
The bad news is: there will be no more public input, and one week is not much time for the Council to gather additional information.
Gov. Mitch Daniels sent two administration spokespersons to support the Tondu proposal. One of them, Thomas Easterly, is the new commissioner for the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM). Easterly said IDEM approves of the Tondu proposal.
Of special note here is IDEM's new mission: creating jobs in Indiana. The new IDEM commissioner met with environmental leaders in South Bend shortly after accepting his position. Mr. Easterly plainly stated that creating jobs in Indiana is the new IDEM mission. Gov. Daniels is concerned that businesses give up on locating in Indiana because the permitting process is too slow and cumbersome. Gov. Daniels and the IDEM commissioner want to streamline the permitting process.
The South Bend Tribune ran three front page articles on the Tondu plant.
- Tondu vote put on hold
- Officials allege behind the scene talks
- Gov. Mitch Daniels and the head of IDEM back Tondu proposal

Audubon Board Votes to Oppose Tondu Plant
From Laura Fuderer: "The Audubon Board has decided to oppose the coal gasification power plant that Mr. Joe Tondu proposes to build in New Carlisle. While it’s cleaner than using pulverized coal, this process would still emit nitrous oxide, sulfur dioxide, carbon dioxide, and particulates, all measurable in TONS per year! Indiana is the fourth worst state in the country for air pollution, due partly to vehicles and partly to coal-fired power plants. Public health in our region simply cannot afford another coal-fired power plant. Remember: both St. Jo. and Elkhart Counties are DOWNWIND of New Carlisle."
6 Reasons to Reject Tondu Proposal
Ample evidence exists that our future energy needs can be met much more sustainably by investment in, and adoption of, energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies. If the Tondu proposal receives the support of the St. Joseph County Council on September 13th, investment in all those technologies as well as our health and ecosystem are undermined. Joseph Miller outlines six reasons to reject the Tondu proposal. More...

St. Joseph County Citizens Question Tondu Coal Gasification Plant
Resistence to the proposed Tondu coal gassification plant is rising steeply due to unanswered questions about the plant and revelations about Tondu Corporation's behavior in other communities.
Tondu is seeking a permit from the County Council to build a 550 megawatt merchant electric plant in New Carlisle, IN. The plant would use coal and numerous other forms of carbon based fuel. A grassroots group has formed to investigate Tondu's claims and to oppose the plant. Join the resistence now -- the permit process will conclude on September 13 when the Council votes on the proposal. Read the information we provide here, contact your County Council rep and say NO! to Tondu. More...
Patent reform legislation in Congress amounts to little more than a "Get Out of Jail Free" card for Microsoft.
Late last month, shortly before the U.S. Congress shut down for its summer recess, the Senate Judiciary Committee's Intellectual Property subcommittee held an unusual hearing -- unusual because the only committee member attending the hearing was the chairman, Orrin Hatch, a Republican from Utah. Why would such a prestigious committee hold a hearing in Washington attended by only one member? To slam through some controversial legislation, of course. Senator Hatch was trying to pass a new law "reforming" the U.S. patent system and apparently felt it would all go much more smoothly without the presence of the other committee members. And it might have gone smoothly, except someone in the press noticed the unusual hearing and decided to attend, essentially scotching the intended markup of the bill a week later and passage just as an unwary Congress was heading home.

Bicycle Lanes Committee Forming
Would you like to bike or walk safely from your home to any park in South Bend or St. Joseph County?
Judith Robert is organizing a committee to petition South Bend city government to link South Bend streets to planned recreational pathways. The approved recreational bikeways/walkways are designed to connect public parks and playgrounds in South Bend and St. Joseph County.
Robert has identified five city streets which can link city neighborhoods to the pathways and to the parks. The streets need official bike lanes to make the linkages safely. Petitions are circulating now. If you are interested in joining the committee, circulating petitions or just want more information, contact Judith Robert at her office, 287-2060.

2005 Petition Forms Good for 2006 Election
Rita Glen, St. Joseph County Clerk, and Brad King of the Indiana State Election Commission say that 2005 petition forms to place a candidate on the Indiana ballot (CAN-19) in 2006 are good until January 1, 2006. The Election Division is designing new forms for the Indiana 2006 general elections, and the old forms will be accepted. However, the new forms should be used after January 1, 2006.
The Indiana Green Party is gathering signatures to place a candidate for Secretary of State on the ballot in 2006. Bill Stant is allowing the IGP to use his name as the stand-in candidate. Bill is running for Secretary of State and hopes the IGP will endorse him at their 2006 Congress.
NAACP Strongly Opposes Janice Rogers Brown Nomination
On February 14, 2005, President Bush re-nominated Janice Rogers Brown, who currently serves on the California Supreme Court, to serve a lifetime appointment on the US Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit after she was rejected in the 108th Congress. On April 21, 2005, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted 10-8 to send Justice Brown to the full Senate floor for confirmation. Unfortunately, and despite the NAACP's continuing opposition, her confirmation was included as part of the "deal" between 14 members of the two parties to preserve the filibuster and avoid the "nuclear option."
The NAACP strongly opposes this nomination, as Judge Brown has, throughout her career, been extremely hostile towards laws that protect the civil rights and civil liberties of African Americans and other racial and ethnic minorities. Furthermore, she has consistently shown a real inability to separate her personal beliefs from her judicial activism. More...

Optical Scan Machines Hacked In Florida
Tallahassee, FL: "Are we having fun yet?"
This is the message that appeared in the window of a county optical scan machine, startling Leon County Information Systems Officer Thomas James. Visibly shaken, he immediately turned the machine off.
Diebold's opti-scan (paper ballot) voting system uses a curious memory card design, offering penetration by a lone programmer such that standard canvassing procedures cannot detect election manipulation.
The Diebold optical scan system was used in about 800 jurisdictions in 2004. Among them were several hotbeds of controversy: Volusia County (FL); King County (WA); and the New Hampshire primary election, where machine results differed markedly from hand-counted localities. More...

Climate Change Already Affecting Agriculture in Midwest Great Lakes Region
(ENS) - Agriculture in Illinois and the entire Great Lakes region will be harmed by a warming climate, warns a new report from the University of Illinois and the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS).
"Farmers in the region are already suffering from wetter spring and fall weather, and the intensity of rainstorms has also increased," says Michelle Wander, University of Illinois Associate Professor of soil fertility and co-author of "Impacts on Agriculture: Our Region's Vital Economic Sector." Changing precipitation patterns, more extreme rainfall events, rising ozone concentrations, and an increase in pests and pathogens will disrupt current farming practices throughout the region, the scientists say in the document issued March 8 "For farmers, these changes mean crop losses and higher costs," Wander said.
