Connecticut will join several other states to defend the recently-repealed Clean Power Plan.
“Because the Trump Administration’s EPA has clearly demonstrated that it has no interest in doing its job when it comes to carbon emissions, Connecticut will join with colleagues in other states in action to defend the Clean Power Plan and protect the health, safety and well-being of our residents,” Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen said in a press release on Oct. 10.
Jepsen called the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) decision to repeal the Clean Power Plan “disappointing” in the release.

Two professors, Dr. Carol Atkinson-Palombo and Dr. Norman Garrick led the trip. They focus on human-environment dynamics and sustainable transportation and urban planning, respectively. The students in these films have a variety of interests and majors, which made each film completely unique.
As a Jets fan, there isn’t too much to celebrate, so I tend to root for whichever team the Patriots are versing that week. This has caused me to really take a liking to the New York Giants because they beat the Patriots in not one, but two Super Bowls.
University of Connecticut faculty urged students to consume alcohol safely and look out for each other’s safety during Halloween weekend in an email sent Tuesday afternoon.

Steve Kragthorpe was hired in 2003 to turn around the program, and Tulsa has been one of the more consistently good mid-major teams since then. Tulsa has made a bowl in 10 out of 14 seasons since Kragthorpe took over, but making one in 2017 might be a struggle.

Two weeks ago, I finally signed up for Spotify Premium and was more than happy to accept the wonderful student discount rate of $4.99 a month. Imagine how surprised I was to learn that I even got access to Hulu with that discount.
