- California regulators have ordered SoCal Gas to permanently close and seal the natural gas storage well in Aliso Canyon that has been leaking since October.
- The Sempra Energy subsidiary also is ordered to fund an independent health study for residents of the Porter Ranch community as well as inspect all 115 wells at the Aliso Canyon storage facility to prevent any future gas leaks.
- Critics are angry that the regulatory authority did not order all the wells at the Aliso Canyon storage site closed down; the "failure to put Californians' livelihoods first is shameful, and Gov. Brown should intervene swiftly," says Sierra Club executive director Michael Brune.
This is really cool. Back on October 31, 2015, I had a long post on McDonalds: Why I Started Going To McDonald's Instead Of Starbucks For My Coffee. This is only part of what I wrote:
Two seniors, grandparents, no doubt, have just sat down across from me in McDonald's with their grandson (no doubt), who appears to be about 12 years old. They have all ordered a pancake and sausage breakfast.Now, today, McDonald's reports earnings that greatly exceeded expectations and there are articles everywhere that the move to their all-day breakfast is responsible for the resurgence of this franchise. Just one more reason why I love to blog. This was posted earlier this morning:
When I came in, a bit after 11:00 a.m., I also ordered off the breakfast menu. Very interesting.
Saturday mornings in north Texas belong to "other" breakfast restaurants, but we seldom go any more: the lines are way too long, and the waits are upwards of 90 minutes. Yes, the Texas breakfasts are that good. But now McDonald's has added a new wrinkle.
Something tells me that we will be reading articles at the end of this business quarter about the decision made by McDonald's to offer breakfast all day long.
It's very possible someone is going to look like a genius.
