 PINR - Somalia's Conflict Enters a Phase of Duress
In the third week of August, the conflict had evolved to a new phase in which all of the players came under duress, pressured by the moves of the major antagonists, who appeared to be reaching the limits of their unopposed power and had entered a period of testing each other's resolve.
On August 7, the I.C.C. gained its first mass-media outlet, taking over Radio Mogadishu, which was part of the facilities that came under its control when it ousted forces loyal to warlord and T.F.G. deputy prime minister and interior minister Hussein Aideed from his stronghold Villa Somalia on July 27.
The most important of them were a rally in Mogadishu on August 11 attended by 2,000 people in support of Lebanon and against the "enemies of Islam" (the United States, Ethiopia and Israel), and demonstrations on August 14 supporting the I.C.C. in the Mudug and Galguduud regions, where the Courts had recently extended their rule.

 EPA - TTN NSR August 18, 1978 Section 52.21 (i) (3) of the PSD Regulations 1.7
Section 52.21 (i) (1) of the regulations gives the general rule that the regulations apply to any "major stationary source or major modification." These power plants are undoubtedly "major stationary sources," and none of the exceptions to the general rule which appear on the face of the regulations fit the facts.
Put differently, section 168 (b) declares that the PSD regulations in effect before August 7, 1977, not any in effect after that time, govern the review and permitting of any source on which construction commenced within the meaning of section 169 (2) between June 1, 1975, and August 7, 1977.
