Some Placer County businesses frustrated with pre

Just weeks after dealing with a pre-emptive power outage, some 70,000 Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) customers are being warned that it could happen again.

The utility company is warning customers in nine Northern California counties that it may disconnect power in portions of those counties due to hazardous wind conditions.

Restaurant, gas stations, grocery stores and other businesses in the City of Colfax had to close for about two hours during the last planned outage.

This may worth something:

PG&E could shut off power to 8 NorCal counties

Power may be shut off in eight Northern California counties early Thursday due to fire concerns, according to PG&E.

PG&E said Tuesday the Red Flag Warning from the National Weather Service and other weather factors leading to extreme fire danger are reasons for proactively shutting off power in some parts of those counties.

“We know how much our customers rely on electric service and the impacts these events can have on our customers, their families and communities,” senior vice president of Electric Operations Pat Hogan said in a statement. “We will only consider temporarily turning off power in the interest of safety and as a last resort during extreme weather conditions to reduce the risk of wildfire.”

Adam Silver isn’t ‘disappointed’ that WNBA players opted out of CBA

NBA commissioner Adam Silver says the NBA’s support of the WNBA remains firm, and that the NBA is neither angered nor disappointed by the players’ recent decision to opt out of their current collective bargaining agreement. He said he wants the players to feel that lines of communication truly are open as they approach talks for a new deal.

In a wide-ranging interview with espnW, Silver said he has heard that some WNBA players feel they’re not included enough in decisions about the league’s issues. He said he intends to address that, and he sees opening the CBA now — the 2019 season isn’t impacted, but a new agreement must be in place for 2020 — as having the potential for positive results on both sides.

When politicians are asked tough questions about policies that defy science, they’ll sometimes say, “Hey, I’m not a scientist.”

But 13 new political candidates are attempting to bolster the science credentials on Capitol Hill in the 2018 midterm elections. A crop of scientists are running for office across the country, in states including South Carolina, Nevada, and California.

These candidates have the support of a nonprofit political-action committee called 314 Action, which started in 2016 and is dedicated to recruiting, training, and funding scientists and healthcare workers who want to run for political office.
