It’s easy to see the contradictions in Jared Polis.The wildly successful entrepreneur — he launched three companies before he turned 30 that collectively sold for more than $1 billion — routinely faces derision from Republican opponents as an enemy of capitalism and a threat to the state’s economy. The 43-year-old power broker with an 18-year unbroken string of wins at the ballot box is often treated as a party-crasher by fellow Democrats, while his libertarian leanings — he once proposed privatizing the U.S. Postal Service — make for unexpected alliances that irk the progressive wing of his party and belie Republican attacks branding him the squishiest of Boulder liberals.Scratch his public record, and the incongruities multiply: A leading national advocate for marijuana legalization, Polis says he has never smoked pot, for instance. The one-time backer of tough oil and gas drilling restrictions got jeered last month by environmentalists. And the … [Read more...] about Profile: Entrepreneur Jared Polis sees governor’s race as a chance to turn good ideas into reality

AT last we’re finally getting to the nub of the Brexit issue. The thing which convinced an awful lot of British people to vote Leave two years ago. Immigration. A vexed issue. Complain about it and people will call you a racist. That’s a popular way of shutting down debate these days. Just screech “raaacisst” at someone. I’d go so far as to say it’s one of the reasons Leave won the referendum — because ordinary people were sick of being called racist when they simply worried about the millions of people who have arrived here in the past ten years. About seven million, in fact. An astonishing number. The Prime Minister is about to draw up her plans for immigration post-Brexit. She will be taking advice from the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC). It has suggested we allow in skilled workers who might be vital to our economy. It has also suggested we clamp down on low-skilled migrants.

The 2017 storm had left the family, like more than a million others on this US territory, without electricity or running water for what would become months, sowing despair, uncertainty, illness and contributing to deaths.Before the hurricane, her teenage boy had made remarkable progress in recovering from another tragedy -- his father's death from cancer one year before. The death had inspired him to become a nurse, … [Read more...] about ‘The Maria Generation’: One year after hurricane, young people are dying and suffering on island
