Cecil The Lion Update: Yelp Users Outraged After Thousands Of River Bluff Dental Reviews Vanish
By Christopher Zar August 01 2015 11:07 AM EDT
Yelp reviewers say their criticism of River Bluff Dental, where Cecil the lion's killer worked, served a public good, but Yelp’s guidelines favor reviews that reflect first-hand customer experiences.

How do you wage Yelp warfare when Yelp won’t play along? Online critics of the American hunter who killed Cecil the lion are in an uproar after Yelp Inc. removed thousands of reviews trashing his dental practice.
River Bluff Dental in Bloomington, Minnesota, has been the target of fierce criticism on various online review platforms since last week when the Telegraph identified Walter Palmer as the recreational game hunter who paid upwards of $55,000 to kill the beloved feline on safari in Zimbabwe. Almost immediately after Palmer was named in the press, critics took to Yelp, Facebook, Google and other platforms to voice their disgust and vent their rage at Palmer’s place of business, with many saying they hope Palmer suffers the same fate as the lion he slaughtered. Others posted outright death threats against the hunter.
flintstone technology meets high tech
if you cant reach the owners online
you cant reach them
you need to make the entire business on line
there must be ways to attract the business owners all online
door to door ? are you kidding me ?

EU Approves Major Natural Gas for Transportation Projects Under CEF
July 19, 2015 | Europe
EU Member States represented in the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) Coordination Committee have approved the allocation of EUR 13.1 billion (USD 14.3 billion) to support a total of 276 projects selected following the first transport calls for proposals under the CEF, published in 2014. 2014 has been the first programming year under the CEF. At least 27 natural gas for transportation projects are included, attracting CEF funding of almost EUR 235 million (USD 256m).
Transport Commissioner Violeta Bulc said “I am very pleased that following constructive discussions in the CEF coordination committee, the Member States approved our proposal for the largest investment plan ever made by the EU in the transport area. The projects we selected will contribute to creating jobs and boosting growth in Europe. They will ensure smooth transport flows for passengers and contribute to our economic competitiveness.”
The 2014 CEF transport calls were the largest to date for TEN-T projects, attracting over 700 project proposals totalling more than EUR 36 billion (USD 40 billion) of requested funding. The Commission has prioritised projects with the highest European added value, ranging from small studies to enhance the environmental performance of transport to flagship cross-border infrastructure works. Whatever their size or location, the selected projects, which span across all modes of transport and EU Member States, will upgrade infrastructure and remove existing bottlenecks whilst also promoting intelligent transport solutions and alternative fuels
The Anglo-Dutch energy giant is betting on crude rising to $90 a barrel by 2020, a key assumption in its move to buy rival BG Group for $70bn to help transform it into a leading player in the costly deep water oil production and liquefied natural gas markets.
“We are not banking on an oil price recovery overnight. It will take several years but we do believe fundamentals will return,” said Andy Brown, upstream international director at Shell, who oversees oil and gas production outside North America.
In the nearer term, Shell expects Brent crude oil to show only a modest recovery from the current $58 a barrel, with 2016 prices forecast to average $67 a barrel and $75 a barrel in 2017 — based on the company’s BG offer.
What happens when OIL goes to $40/bbl? $30/bbl?
Now that will really move the needle
What happens when OIL goes to $80/bbl? $70/bbl?

CEF Funds Finnish Study Seeking to Expand Fuel Station Network
July 18, 2015 | Finland,
The European Commission has granted EUR 2.65 million (USD 2.9m) in financial support to a Gasum project studying the opportunities to develop a new kind of LNG refueling station network for heavy-duty vehicles. The project will involve Finnish natural gas importer and retailer Gasum constructing four pilot stations within the TEN-T Core Network in Helsinki, Vantaa, Turku and Jyväskylä, Finland.
Gasum is strongly committed to the development of gas vehicle use. The demand for clean and affordable road fuel gas is increasing sharply all the time, and opportunities to switch to gas as a road fuel are further improved by the expanding supply of gas vehicles and the growing station network. Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is currently used to fuel buses and light vehicles. The EU support granted makes it possible to also provide heavy-duty vehicles with access to natural gas in its liquefied form (LNG). The infrastructure being constructed will also enable the use of liquefied biogas in heavy-duty transport.
Gasum applied for Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) support to explore the opportunities to construct an LNG/L-CNG refueling station network and the deployment and testing of four pilot stations. The positive financial support decision enables the realization of the project and the construction of the pilot refueling stations in the next two years. The project is expected to cost around EUR 5.3 million in (USD 5.8m) total.
The purpose of the Gasum project is to study the regional market potential, optimal technical configurations and operating aspects for the development of the road vehicle refueling stations network in areas outside the current gas network. The project contributes to the TEN-T Core Network, the implementation of the objectives of Directive 2014/94/EU and the development of the market for alternative propulsion s
Pcmountaindog...this is a dead company
It certainly is acting like a dead company....
But natural gas is pretty good stuff and we sure have plenty of it
I am betting you are wrong....and if you are...I am going to be very rich....

Waste Collection Fleet in Quebec Chooses CNG
July 15, 2015 | Canada, Magog QC
Sani-Estrie CNG-powered waste collection vehicleIn Québec’s southern eastern city of Magog, the city’s contracted waste collection company Sani-Estrie has commenced operations with compressed natural gas (CNG) powered dump trucks. The Sherbrooke-based family business currently boasts nine CNG trucks, five of which will be used for waste collection in Magog.
To facilitate fuel supply, Gaz Métro’s subsidiary Gaz Métro Transport Solutions (GMTS) provided a compression station on Sani-Estrie’s Sherbrooke site. The new fleet, now in operation, has been refuelling through the Gaz Métro network since July 1.
The shift towards greener transport was lauded by the City of Magog: a fuel that’s not only cheaper, but also more environmentally friendly. “We are very excited about the new trucks, which will let us enjoy the many benefits of natural gas, especially on the economic and environmental levels,” said Sani-Estrie’s Vice-President, Sylvain Gagné. “Staying at the fore of transport trends is vital if we are to increase our competitiveness in the field of waste collection.”
The nine CNG trucks—two tractor-trailers, two roll-off trucks and five dump trucks—are the first of a total of 30 to be delivered over the next five years. In addition to generating medium- to long-term savings for Sani-Estrie, the new fleet will cut greenhouse gas emissions by as much as 18%. The fact that natural gas engines are also up to 10 decibels quieter will also improve quality of life in the community.
The switch to natural gas gives Sani-Estrie an edge with prospective customers who, like the City of Magog, are concerned about reducing emissions. “We chose to be proactive in finding the best and most cost-effective solutions to reach and even surpass the environmental targets set by the Québec government,” said Mayor Hamm. “Sani-Estrie offers greener and quieter waste collection. This is a concrete example of ho
