Propane In Portland

Short Description: 
Opposition to Pembina's plan to build a propane export terminal on the Columbia River
The largest pipeline company in the Alberta tar sands mining industry, Pembina, wants to export propane (a form of liquefied petroleum gas) from the Port of Portland’s Terminal 6 on the Columbia River to Asian markets. Pembina’s proposal for this terminal on Hayden Island would create: more profits for fracking and tar sands companies; more mileā€long unit trains of explosive propane cutting through our communities; dangerous, pressurized propane storage tanks endangering workers and neighborhoods; and propane supertankers on the Columbia River. The irony is that Pembina’s proposal comes at a time when the City of Portland is attempting to establish itself as a leader in climate policies and sustainability.

Watch Your Back!-- How the Back Pain Industry Is Costing Us More and Giving Us Less by Dr. Deyo

Short Description: 
Watch Your Back! by Dr. Richard Deyo

Over the past twenty years, treatment of back pain has become ever more expensive and intensive. Use of MRI scans, narcotic painkillers, injections, and invasive spine surgery have all grown by several hundred percent, yet annual surveys of people with back pain report steadily worse impairments.  Though it may seem counterintuitive, fewer medical interventions may produce better results with back pain. Expecting a probe, a pill, or a procedure to cure is usually unrealistic, yet entire industries promote the notion that someone else will "fix" you. Watch Your Back! exposes these flaws in the current approach to back pain, along with the profit motives and conflicts of interest behind many of them. Richard A.

Vitamania: Our Obsessive Quest for Nutritional Perfection by Catherine Price

Most of us know nothing about vitamins. What's more, what we think we know is harming both our personal nutrition and our national health. By focusing on vitamins at the expense of everything else, we've become blind to the bigger picture: despite our belief that vitamins are an absolute good--and the more of them, the better--vitamins are actually small and surprisingly mysterious pieces of a much larger nutritional puzzle. In Vitamania, award-winning journalist Catherine Price offers a lucid and lively journey through our cherished yet misguided beliefs about vitamins, and reveals a straightforward, blessedly anxiety-free path to enjoyable eating and good health.
