(NPR) - A federal appeals court has thrown out a power company's permit to build a natural gas pipeline across two national forests and the Appalachian Trail – and slammed the U.S. Forest Service for granting the approvals in the first place.
In a decision filed Thursday by the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Va., a three-judge panel declared the U.S. Forest Service "abdicated its responsibility to preserve national forest resources" when it issued permits for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline to build through parts of the George Washington and Monongahela National Forests and a right of way across the Appalachian Trail.
The judges cited Dr. Seuss' The Lorax: "We trust the United States Forest Service to 'speak for the trees, for the trees have no tongues.'"
The court concluded that the Forest Service's decisions violated both the National Forest Management Act and the National Environmental Policy Act, and found the Forest Service lacked the authority to grant the pipeline a right of way across the Appalachian Trail.

В состязаниях частенько возникают экстремальные ситуации, случаются трудно разрешимые споры.
Решения нужно принимать практически молниеносно.
Стойкость и холодный справедливый расчёт-качества которыми, помимо отличной физ подготовки, должен обладать спортивный судья.
Эта деятельность имеет сходство также и с управлением командой, когда у Вас в подчинении сотрудники высокой квалификации.
И самое важное: ты сам обязан беспрерывно развиваться, соответствовать уровню профи атлетов в спорте и высокого царя специалистам, будучи руководителем на работе.

The greatest mystery of all is when Jesus will come back to earth. With this verse, I encourage everyone to examine their lives to ensure that our hearts our ready for the return of our king. With your relationship with God, your relationship with others, and your day to day lifestyle, challenge yourself to be ready as if Jesus was to show up in the next second. The truth is, no one knows when He will return. But we do know it will be glorious and will bring a new age of living in communion with our Father forever. So live with the mindset that preparing for His return is your purpose in this world! Don’t be ashamed that you bear the name of the one who saved us all and shake off ridicule with a smile, knowing that God has won the war and you are His child no matter what anyone of this world says! Stay close to God and communicate with your loved ones! Anticipate His return with an excited heart today!
