Weight, Nutrition Now Key In Cancer Prevention

People who are overweight have higher levels of insulin and estrogen in their systems. Cancer Society spokesperson Denise Kolba explains why an excess of those particular chemicals is a

Help Stop Child Sex Abuse in Montana

Before American children reach the age of 18 one out of every four girls and one out of every six boys will be the victims of sexual assault. Montana is no exception to the problem of child sex abuse, in 2009 and 2010 local child advocacy centers helped over a thousand children. The saddest part of the story is that many cases are never brought to light, and that only 30% of assaults are reported to police. Learning how to detect the signs of sexual abuse and knowing the proper route for response is a fundamental skill. If you want to learn how to protect your children or the children who may be in your care, the UM School of Social Work along with the Montana Children’s Trust Fund, and the Montana Child Sexual Abuse Response Team (MCSART), are sponsoring a "Stop it Now" seminar in Missoula. Director of the Child Advocacy Center in Flathead County, Brett Kelso tells us a little bit about what the publi

The State of the Union: Three Tactics for the Coming Campaign

I just finished watching the State of the Union Speech and thought I would write a bit about what I heard. Obama employed three tactics in tonight's speech that I think he will continue to press as the campaign moves forward. First of all, he is beginning to try to appeal to the right in an effort to grab votes from the center. Specific examples of this are his opening and closing celebration of the death of Osama bin Laden, his calls for deregulation (milk is not oil was my favorite part of the speech), his push against Chinese trade violations, and his claims of opening up 75% of available offshore oil sources for drilling. The second tactic that he pressed is a more traditional populist appeal that pits the poor against the rich over the issue of "fairness."

Keystone XL Pipeline Could Raise Montana Gas Prices

Many of the arguments in support of the Keystone XL pipeline center on economic development. One important factor to local Montanans that is often overlooked is the effect on the local price of gas if the pipeline were to be approved. Petroleum analyst Patrick Dehaan

First Payroll Tax Cut Committee Meeting Tomorrow

The first Payroll Tax Cut Committee meeting will be streamed live here tomorrow, Tuesday, February 24 at 12:30 p.m. MST. The goal of the committee is to find a compromise between the House and the Senate that will allow the payroll tax cut to stretch on for a full year without adding to the budget deficit. Many economists fear that if the payroll tax cut is allowed to expire it could cause a 1 to 2% drop in GDP. Some of the main topics on the table will be unemployment insurance, Medicare, and payroll tax relief. Montana Senator Max Baucas (D-MT) is the current chairman of the Senate Finance Committee and should be on hand for the meeting.
