Another development in the nationwide college admission scandal actors Laurie Lachlan and her husband fashion, designer Maasim genuinely have pleaded not guilty. Their cues paying bribes to get their two daughters have been to USC as KCRW's David Weinberg reports the decision by Lachlan and GM newly to fight the charges is a contrast the approach taken by some other high profile parents so far thirteen of the thirty three parents charged in the emissions scandal have pleaded guilty, including actress, Felicity Huffman, they're hoping guilty.

Farmers have drilled a deep into the earth to reach. These large underground water basins or awkward, especially during periods of worsening drought. With more water flowing out of these offers than in the clay ground is dry and caving in on itself. Parts of the central valley sunk buys much twenty eight feet during the first half of the twentieth century a team from Stanford's school of earth energy and environmental sciences, say one potential fixes strategic flooding bombarding fields and orchards with excessive water such that the waters able to soak the clay and recharge the empty aquifer is on top of that. Researchers say they've developed types of remote sensing data that instructs farmers wear flooding could be most effective. The new study predicts the ground will sink by other thirteen feet or more at some sites of the next twenty years unless some kind of action is taken. And new protections. Could soon be in place for orcas living off the west coast.
