 Media Coverage
Americans "take drug quality for granted precisely because we are well-regulated," said Lucinda Maine, a spokeswoman for the American Pharmaceutical Assn., a professional group for pharmacists in Washington that has been skeptical of import measures.
Canadian authorities, meanwhile, are considering new rules that would make it harder for Internet pharmacies based there to fill orders from the U.S. Demand for Canadian imports has been fueled as increasingly expensive drugs have hit the U.S. market in recent years.
Canadian law, meanwhile requires a physician to review each patient's case, meaning the concerns some people have about receiving tainted drugs because of an unregulated environment can be eased to some extent, according to Bill Murrin, a Geneva resident and volunteer who has researched the idea for Lauzen.

 Neoconservatism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Compared to other U.S. conservatives, neoconservatives may be characterized by an idealist stance on foreign policy, a lesser social conservatism, and a much weaker dedication to a policy of minimal government, and, in the past, a greater acceptance of the welfare state, though none of these qualities are necessarily requisite.
As compared with traditional conservatism and libertarianism, which sometimes exhibit an isolationist strain, neoconservatism is characterized by an increased emphasis on defense capability, a willingness to challenge regimes deemed hostile to the values and interests of the United States, pressing for free-market policies abroad, and promoting democracy and freedom.
The fact that the use of the term "neoconservative" has rapidly risen since the 2003 Iraq War is cited by conservatives as proof that the term is largely irrelevant in the long term.

 Majikthise : Economics
We have to ask the question what economic growth is a means for (for Aristotle, it was ultimately one contributing means among others towards the end of happiness, found ideally in the contemplative life of the philosopher).
The model only works if voters' sense economic well being is closely related the subset of economic variables specified by the equation: present economic growth and inflation, and history of growth during the incumbent's last term.
Fair makes the further claim that voters calculate their expected utility based on a handful of current economic indicators and the assumption that they are better off under an incumbent with a reasonable economic track record.

 Power is blowing in the Wind
But after the initial investment is made, the wind is free; it is the cost of building the machines that is expensive.  The manufacturing costs are coming down; the capital investment for a Wind farm will be comparable to the cost of building a new coal fired electric plant that has equivalent generating capacity.
When considering the economics of wind as compared to fossil fuels, it is important to recall the actual magnitude of the investment associated with oil and natural gas production.
The U.S. and Canadian investment in oil and natural gas over this time period is predicted to be more than one-fourth of the global total.
