Starting off with strong ratings, the previous six-episode revival of the FBI conspiracy drama debuted January 24, 2016 on the very revival friendly Fox. Facebook LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Twitter After all the teasing and complex corporate conversations, the truth is finally out there today – The X-Files is coming back for the 2017-2018 season.Just more than three years after the last revival of the Chris Carter-created series was announced, Fox said Thursday a new 10-episode run of the Gillian Anderson – and David Duchovny-starrer is set to start production this summer.“Iconic characters, rich storytelling, bold creators – these are the hallmarks of great TV shows. And they are some of the reasons why The X-Files has had such a profound impact on millions of fans worldwide,” said Fox president David Madden. “Chris’ creativity, along with the brilliant work of David and Gillian, continue to propel this pop culture phenomenon, and we can’t wait to see what fresh mysteries Mulder and Scully uncover in this next chapter of The X-Files.” Advertisement
It began when Debbie McDermott allowed her daughter Jamie to raise two sheep for a 4-H project. Eventually, her 165-year-old farm was transformed into a successful, family-run, custom fiber processing mill.McDermott’s Stonehedge Fiber Mill, which opened in 1999 in East Jordan, Michigan, now produces more than 700 pounds of yarn monthly for customers in 38 states and Canada. It produces an additional 15,000 pounds monthly for its personal lines of yarn, including Shepherd’s Wool, which is milled and dyed in-house before it’s shipped and sold in about 300 shops.“I really think the appeal is our yarn’s made in the U.S., and people are more and more going toward U.S.-made products as a support for U.S. companies,” McDermott said.Most garments worn in the United States in the first half of the 20th century were American-made, but the decline of the American textile industry began after World War II, according to knitting and wool industries expert Clara Parkes. She’s a member of the American Sheep Industry — an industry trade group — and author of several books on knitting.In recent years, however, there’s been a slow-growing demand for wool yarn that’s completely produced in the United States, from sheep to skein, Parkes said.One reason, she thinks, could be that consumers are turning back to wool because of the environmental risks of microplastics in garments made from synthetics like acrylic, nylon and polyester. The microplastics are released into waterways when the synthetic garments are washed.Locally sourced yarn helps not only the environment but local businesses too, Parkes said. “There’s the environmental impact of shipping goods all the way across the world and bringing it back, but now people are asking themselves, ‘What if I can get the wool here and just keep it here?’”McDermott echoed that sentiment: “Shopping local is allowing farmers to raise and keep their animals on the farm.”Consumer interest in locally sourced yarn inspired the Michigan Fiber Cooperative to produce a line, Fresh Water Fiber, which uses wool and alpaca from Michigan farms. It’s processed by Stonehedge Fiber Mill and dyed by Why Knot Fibers in Traverse City.One store that stocks Fresh Water Fiber is Wool & Honey in Cedar, Michigan. Owner Melissa Kelenske said she buys from Michigan-based fiber artists and companies that focus on producing high-quality, ethically sourced yarn with attention to their environmental impact.“I think the farm-to-table movement of eating local, shopping local — basically the major slow food movement — laid the ground work for the knitting industry,” Kelenske said.Another yarn company that supplies Wool & Honey is Brooklyn Tweed, of Portland, Oregon. Knitwear designer Jared Flood founded the company in 2010 to “preserve, support and sustain” American textile production by doing business with sheep farmers, fiber mills and dyers across the United States.The business concept “was not so much about patriotism as supporting local economies,” said Christina Rondepierre, Brooklyn Tweed’s marketing manager.“It was also the revitalization of East Coast mills and dyeing houses and the whole U.S. textile industry so they could sustain income and make sure towns and business were able to stay afoot,” Rondepierre said. For example, the Harrisville, New Hampshire, Historic District mill village spins some of Brooklyn Tweed’s yarns. The village was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1977.But patriotism, too, is helping to revive the American wool industry.After Ralph Lauren drew flak for making its Team USA apparel for the 2012 Summer Olympics in China, the fashion company had all Team USA apparel for the 2014 Winter Olympics made in the United States. The yarn used for the closing ceremony sweaters was 4,000 pounds of Shepherd’s Wool from Stonehedge Fiber Mill.McDermott was shocked when a Ralph Lauren representative asked her to supply the yarn.“It was a mouth-dropped-open moment when I realized who I was talking to on the phone,” she said. “It was a neat experience.”Shireen Korkzan, The Associated Press
VANCOUVER, B.C. – A study commissioned by B.C. Hydro says British Columbians do not know why Daylight Savings Time exists.Daylight Savings Time starts this Sunday, March 10, at 2 a.m. when the rest of the Province will spring forward an hour. Here in Northeast B.C. we do not participate in Daylight Savings Time and do not change our clocks.Daylight Saving Time was first implemented in Canada more than 100 years ago as a way to conserve energy; however, about 60 percent of British Columbians incorrectly believe its purpose is to provide more sunlight during waking hours. Others believe it exists to provide more working hours while some just think it costs them an hour of sleep – with 35 percent saying the time shift has a negative effect on them. Fifty-six percent British Columbians would prefer if B.C. remained on standard time year-round.Several studies have found Daylight Saving Time electricity savings are negligible – or non-existent. A recent study in Alberta found that it actually has the opposite effect, increasing energy use. This fall, BC Hydro is planning to release a new report after further research and analysis on Daylight Saving Time, which will examine whether or not this practice saves electricity in B.C.

Focussing only on that, then we will see,” Zidane said, according to 101 Great Goals.Zidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.“Cristiano Ronaldo has to stay at Real Madrid.”“Cristiano Ronaldo will stay with Real Madrid, but we have to see.”“I think he is a Real player and we cannot describe what he has done in his career.”
I could not have asked for a better deputy than @SHSanders45 – she will be a fantastic @PressSec and serve @POTUS & @WhiteHouse very well— Sean Spicer (@PressSec) July 21, 2017″I’m humbled by this honor, and grateful to the President for his confidence in me,” Sanders said in a statement. “I’m looking forward to working with our new Communications Director, Anthony Scaramucci. I have great appreciation and respect for Sean Spicer, who has been more than a colleague, but a true friend and mentor. We’ve had a tremendous first six months, and I’m excited about the opportunity to continue promoting the President’s agenda to Make America Great Again.”Scaramucci said his goal is to help connect the American people to the president in a more efficient manner.”I think there’s been, at times, a disconnect between the way we see the president and how much we love the president and the way some of you perhaps see the president. I certainly see the American people probably see the president the way I do, but we want to get that message out there,” he said.Last month, three CNN investigative journalists resigned over a retracted Trump/Russia story that attempted to connect Scaramucci to a $10 billion Russian investment fund. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer resigns , Posted: July 21, 2017 July 21, 2017 WASHINGTON D.C. (KUSI) — White House Press Secretary resigned Friday after the president named Anthony Scaramucci its new communications director.According to CNN, Spicer’s resignation came after Scaramucci accepted the position, a move Spicer adamantly opposed. He also resigned despite President Trump’s request that he remain in the position.”I am grateful for Sean’s work on behalf of my administration and the American people. I wish him continued success as he moves on to pursue new opportunities, just look at his great television ratings,” President Trump said in a statement released by the White House. “It has been a tremendous honor to serve as the Trump Administration’s first Press Secretary,” Spicer said. “In just six months, President Trump and his staff have done great work to advance the interests of the American people, both at home and abroad. President Trump’s unwavering commitment to making America great again will no doubt ensure that these successes continue in the coming months and year.”Anthony Scaramucci is a 53-year-old, Long Island native, a self-made billionaire with a Harvard Law Degree and is the co-founder of the global investment firm “Skybridge.”He has an estimated net worth of $1.5 billion, but it wasn’t always that way.Scaramucci calls his family background a “classic Italian immigrant story.” He had a middle-class upbringing, his father was a laborer for 42 years.He is also a Trump campaign fundraiser and long-time ally.”I love the president and I’m very, very loyal to the president and I love the mission that the president has,” he said.Although Scaramucci has no previous political or communications experience, President Trump is confident he can oversee the Communications Department, saying “Anthony is a person I have great respect for, and he will be an important addition to this administration. He’s been a great supporter and will now help implement key aspects of our agenda while leading the communications team.”Scaramucci’s first order of business? Officially replacing Sean Spicer with Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who recently conducted the press briefings instead of Spicer. Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter
