Bill to ditch daylight saving time is back

first_imgClocks roll back Sunday with the end of daylight saving time, but the bill to eliminate the clock change for good in Alaska is still rolling forward.Download AudioRep. Wes Keller addresses the Alaska House of Representatives, March 16, 2014. (Photo by Skip Gray/360 North)Senate Bill 6 would eliminate daylight saving time and petition the feds to switch Alaska to Pacific time. Rep. Wes Keller, a Wasilla Republican, chairs the interim subcommittee taking up the bill Friday morning.“Primarily, just hearing, you know and getting more input,” Keller said.He’s got some changes in mind that don’t affect the bill’s two core concepts, including a title change to put the Pacific time zonepart front and center.“All of Alaska would be on the same time as Seattle” — for half the year — “And that would be great for commerce and everything; that’d be a great plan. And I never heard anybody that was against that plan. We just want to make sure, enhance that part of it. Make sure that it’s well discussed, and test that premise to see if it in fact it has the degree of support I believe it did. The testimony we had was all anti- getting rid of daylight saving time. Not anti- going on Pacific time, as I recall,” Keller said.The Senate passed the bill 16-4 in March.last_img read more

Video shows him being driven by crony who threatened Fedor’s life— Karim Zidan (@ZidanSports) March 16, 2017 Kadyrov has a list of humans rights violations longer than Jon Jones’ arms, but that hasn’t stopped many popular MMA fighters and kickboxers from taking his money to appear at his events, including Chris Weidman, Fabricio Werdum, Frankie Edgar, Frank Mir and Badr Hari. Then he turned the joke on himself. Kenny, who was the first UFC fighter to fight at Featherweight after fighting at Middleweight, empathized. This moment is now one of the most iconic in the sport — Nate Diaz elevated his career from pocket change to millionaire in a moment of time, while McGregor faced his first humiliating UFC defeat in front of millions.

His driver was the guy who threatened Fedor Emelianenko after “Last Emperor” criticized Kadyrov for letting his kids fight in a full-contact MMA match.

This highlight makes Rampage look a lot deadlier than he is these days. Maybe he should change his nickname to Brad ‘One Puppy’ Pickett. Mayweather apparently intends to continue collaborating with Kadyrov, with Kadyrov saying Mayweather “intends to invite a team of trainers in boxing and MMA from the US.”As long as he doesn’t touch Kadyrov’s cat.Bobs and WeavesI had a dream last night that I was hanging out with UFC Heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic, asking him if those body jabs Junior dos Santos threw in their first fight slowed him down at all. I informed him I had watched that fight, like, four times (only a slight exaggeration) and offered to show him the counter Conor McGregor tried to time against Nate Diaz’ body jab. He was like, “you know I have coaches for this, right?” And I was like, “I know, man, this is more for my gratification than it is for you.” And then I woke up. Stipe is still cool though, and I’m happy to see he has embraced Stone Cold Stipe, Tommy Toehold’s vision of him. #WMMAwednesday: @Kat_Roy85 with the #Zangief spinning lariat on @MackenzieDern at #LFA6!
