UC Davis’ Plan To Increase Clarity Of Lake Tahoe Will Please Tourists And Dogs

LAKE TAHOE (CBS13) – UC Davis has a plan that’s part science and part business that will increase the clarity of Lake Tahoe and make dog treats in the process. Lake Tahoe is arguably one of the most beautiful mountain lakes in the world and one of the clearest, but the clarity of the lake has been declining in recent years and that has environmentalists worried. “There’s a whole economy riding on the back of having an iconic lake and if the trend and clarity loss was to continue, then would...

Special is a new startup offering online video creators a way to move beyond advertising for their income. The service was created by the team behind tech consulting and development firm Triple Tree Software. Special’s co-founder and CEO Sam Lucas told me that the team had already “scrapped our way from nothing to a seven-figure annual revenue,” but when the founders met with Next Frontier Capital (Next Frontier, like Special, is based in Bozeman, Montana) they pitched a bigger idea — an app whe...

How Trump’s Anti-Immigrant Census Power Grab Throws Rural States Under The Bus

Democratic-leaning parts of the country are not the only losers in President Trump’s anti-immigrant scheme to hijack the census. His administration’s recent moves to speed up the count appear aimed at making sure Trump is still president when the Bureau’s most important task — providing the data that decides how many House seats each state gets — is finished.  In doing so, Trump is also throwing under the bus rural parts of the country, census experts and demographers tell TPM. The gambit...

Trump’s Convention Chaos Leaves Small Biz Owners Seething

Donald Trump’s decision to largely cancel the original RNC convention in Charlotte keeps disappointing Larry Farber. Before the president torpedoed the long-planned event, Farber, the owner of Middle C Jazz, envisioned a much-needed economic stimulus for the area’s businesses, including his own, which was slated to be an official convention venue location. Any chance of that happening fell apart when Trump vengefully moved the festivities and quickly settled on Jacksonville after feuding with No...

Q&A With Rising Missoula, MT Based Hip Hop Artist Dougie Fir

Mad respect on your latest Album release “The Basement” . We checked it out and really enjoyed the new underground sound & perspective coming out of Missoula, MT.

The Fox That Plays Golfs

An angry fellow writes to tell me he is an expert on digging dogs and knows all about sheep and fox. Except it seems he lives in an east coast state about three hours away and he has never even *seen* a sheep in that state. Really? Okay. Cool. I will accept he is an expert in working terriers and all other things. Who knows,  he might be.  Never heard of the guy before, but the "stars" on the cover of the supermarket tabloids are a complete mystery to m...

Investors say these 38 fintechs are the next generation of breakout B2B stars, following in the footsteps of Stripe and Plaid

We asked some of the top fintech investors to recommend up-and-coming fintechs that cater directly to businesses. Investors could nominate their own portfolio companies, as well as fintechs they haven't backed, with the caveat that nominees couldn't have raised beyond a Series B round of funding.

Facebook has slowed donations to politicians ahead of the 2020 election, even as it faces tougher scrutiny from regulators and elected officials (FB)

Facebook is slowing its donations to US politicians, even as a hotly contested presidential election approaches. The social media company is on track to spend significantly less via its political action committee in 2020 than it did in either 2016 or 2018 — despite tripling revenues since 2016. The company is also slowing the speed at which it is making donations, an analysis of FEC filings by Business Insider found. And it is moving away from donating to candidates directly, instead directing...

US wildlife agency rejects protections for rare fish species

U.S. wildlife officials on Wednesday rejected special protections for a rare, freshwater fish related to salmon that's been at the center of a long-running legal dispute, citing conservation efforts that helped increase Arctic grayling numbers in a Montana river. The move comes almost two years after a federal appeals court faulted the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for arbitrarily dismissing the threat that climate change and other pressures pose to the species. While those threats will pers...
