dc1fan22, did you mean to ask "who will win the NBA Championship? " It sounds like you've decided that Cleveland and San Antonio will be in the Finals. (Feb 11, 2009 | post #2)
"The Kings won because the Spurs defense was terrible. Well, Bruce Bowen played Kevin Martin flawlessly and the doubles worked on Ron Artest for the most part. But Brad Miller isn't used to getting any breathing room against Duncan." (Nov 30, 2007 | post #1)
SF Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi originally proposed a tax on plastic bags, just like bag taxes successfully implemented in Ireland, South Africa, Bangladesh, Australia, China and Taiwan. But the American Plastics Council embarked on a PR campaign to kill the proposal, so Mirkarimi came back with a plastic bag ban, which passed. Here's why this is good news for environmentalists and fiscal conservatives: * According to the Department of the Environment, consumers lug home about 50 million bags from San Francisco grocery stores each year. Of those, 90 percent are nonrecyclable plastic. * Plastic bags gum up SF recycling and composting machines resulting in $1 million in extra costs and lost revenue from the sale of recyclable materials. * Plastic bags account for 2 percent of the city's total "waste stream," and picking up and disposing littered bags costs an additional $7.4 million annually. * An estimated 12 million barrels of oil go into the production of plastic bags.
