    Five years after Hurricane Maria, Puerto Rico's power crisis and a new storm revive grim memories.
    NBC News (Moderate Left) • Factual Grade 76% • 5 min read

    Late Sunday morning, Tropical Storm Fiona strengthened into a Category 1 hurricane. As of Sunday afternoon, even though the hurricane was far weaker than Maria, the island had lost all power — like five years before. Puerto Rico’s patched-up power grid continually acts up, causing constant blackouts and brownouts even when weather events aren’t present.
    ...
    Residents have experienced longer service restoration times since June, when Luma Energy, a Canadian-American company, took over Puerto Rico’s energy system. In a recent congressional hearing, [a Luma Energy executive] said the company had done more in the past 15 months to increase energy efficiency than what had been done in the past decade.
    ...
    Puerto Rico depends mostly on imported oil [for] electricity. There has been some progress to use renewables, mostly solar panels to counteract the tenuous power grid. [But] renewable energy generation is currently at less than 4%. A few weeks ago, [FEMA] made $9.5 billion available for Puerto Rico to rebuild its power grid, the largest ever public infrastructure project.

Should religious universities have to recognize LGBTQ student clubs?

495 votes, 57 comments

Context: Supreme Court temporarily rules against Yeshiva University's rejection of LGBTQ club.

HIGHLIGHTED COMMENTS

No - I don't think any university should HAVE to recognize certain student groups. To be university sanctioned, there should be some alignment with the university. The students are free to congregate for whatever reasons they want, but it doesn't have to be sanctioned by the university. They certainly wouldn't have to recognize a certain fraternity or sorority, or BLM or ANTIFA or a political club or a swingers club...the list is endless and the University should be able to sanction whatever clubs fit their stance.


Yes - A university, like any other business, does not have a right to discriminate against an...



Unsure - My answer is actually Yes and No instead of Unsure. If the school takes state or federal funding to operate then yes,...
