The leaks of low-level waste didn’t endanger anybody, an atto...

Showdown at Standing Stone Camp 16.11.2016 American Prospect
As a seasoned Beltway lawyer and lobbyist representing Native peoples, Tara Houska is no stranger to public conflicts. A member of the Couchiching First Nation and Ojibwe tribe, Houska represents tribal interests on Capitol Hill on a range of land-use and environmental issues. But when she saw a Facebook post in mid-July from a Standing Rock Sioux member named LaDonna Brave Bull Allard, Houska knew she had to act fast. An oil conduit known as the Dakota Access Pipeline was threatening traditional Native American burial sites, and if it ruptured, would pollute the Missouri River. Allard was putting out a call for people to take action on the North Dakota banks of the Missouri River. Houska packed up her stuff, jumped in her car, and drove across the country to join the ranks of the self-described “water protectors” at the Standing Stone Camp, where she would spend the next three months. When she arrived, her tent stood alone in a big field. By the beginning of fall, it was just one of many along a ...

"No guts, no glory" motto has Lundin eyeing deals 30.8.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
If Monopoly were played for natural resources, Lukas Lundin would be the natty gent in the tuxedo — riding a motorcycle. And like many with a knack for the board game, the Swedish-Canadian tycoon says his victories are as much about guts as a good roll of the dice. “You make your own luck,” the 58-year-old Lundin said in an interview at his Vancouver offices last week. “If you sit at home, you’re never going to get the luck.” No one could accuse Lundin of lazing around the house. He and his youn...
