TAA responds to NSW Government review of short term lettingAustralia’s peak accommodation body, Tourism Accommodation Australia (TAA), said that the NSW Government’s response to the Parliamentary Review into short term letting was an acknowledgment that unregulated short-term letting in residential communities was a complex issue where the benefits had to be carefully weighed against the far-reaching and potentially negative consequences.TAA CEO, Carol Giuseppi, said the accommodation industry had no issues with the Government relaxing regulations for property owners who provided genuine share stays by offering a room in their house or apartment on an occasional basis.However, existing regulations needed to be enforced to prevent commercial operators exploiting the new online distribution system and operating ‘quasi hotels’ that didn’t comply with the fire safety, disability access, employment, insurance and taxation requirements required of other commercial accommodation operators.“Research shows that 35% of Airbnb listings in Sydney are available 365 days a year and being operated as fully commercial property businesses, with an increasing proportion operated as multi-property businesses – this is not ‘sharing’,” said Ms Giuseppi. “It is essential that adequate regulations be imposed on non-resident commercial property investors who rent out full properties for short term stays.“We have also recommended a specific time limit to be placed on short-term letting of properties, which would allow owners to rent out their property while on holidays – but not as a commercial business. This needs to be supported by a register of properties to improve transparency and compliance and better inform government and industry planning.“TAA welcomes the opportunity for further consultation with government to ensure a resolution is reached that ensures the sustainability of the commercial accommodation sector which currently injects $2.3 billion directly into the economy, contributes $4.5 billion in consumption, and directly and indirectly employs over 80,000 people across NSW.“It is important that investor confidence is sustained as Sydney is currently undergoing the largest-ever expansion of its hotel sector, with the 40 hotels and 8000 rooms under development or in planning set to inject over $4 billion into the local economy and create thousands of sustainable jobs.“Sydney and regional areas need to be differentiated in the new regulatory framework. Holiday houses in regional areas are not the main issue. It is the prospect of houses and apartment blocks being turned into quasi hotels and impacting residents, communities and legitimate operators that should be the most pressing issue for Government to address.“The Government can learn from cities around the world that have recently introduced strict regulations to counter the negative effects – particularly for housing and rental affordability – caused by the unfettered growth of unregulated commercial short-term stays, and we would encourage the Government to develop a new regulatory environment that allows the tourism sector to grow, but not at the expense of residents and legitimate operators in the industry.” Tourism Accommodation AustraliaSource = Tourism Accommodation Australia

• Larry Webster, Bloomsburg (Private workout) • Howard Jones, Shepherd (Private workout)Shazier is the most dynamic athlete at linebacker in the 2014 draft class, and offers positional flexibility and scheme versatility that the Cardinals and defensive coordinator Todd Bowles love.Shazier is a name that could be available when the Cardinals are on the clock at 20.Webster and Jones are two fantastic small school athletic linebackers who have off-the-chart measurables. But like Duvernay-Tardif, both need time and work to make an impact at the next level. The Cardinals could be enticed by their athleticism.Defensive backs• Jason Verrett, CB TCU (Private Workout)• Ahmad Dixon, SS Baylor (Senior Bowl)• Nevin Lawson, CB Nevada (East West Shrine Game)• Lonnie Ballentine, FS Memphis (Private Workout)Quite the mishmash of talent here, but Dixon, Lawson and Ballentine are the type of long, athletic defensive backs defensive coordinator Todd Bowles and general manager Steve Keim are looking for.Verrett is interesting because he may be the best cover corner in the draft, but at only 5-9, he’s much shorter than what the Cardinals have talked about looking for. Tight End• Arthur Lynch, Georgia (Senior Bowl)Excellent inline blocker who can double as an H-Back/fullback. Lynch has good hands, but isn’t a great athlete.He’s a late day-two, early day-three-type.Offensive line• Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, McGill (Canada) (Private Workout and East-West Shrine Game)Interesting that the only offensive lineman the Cardinals have lined up so far is a Canadian college prospect that struggled with everything at the East-West Shrine Game. However, he did show unbelievable athleticism and foot speed.Duvernay-Tardif is a day three prospect with untapped upside, but he needs a lot of time and work.Defensive line• Ra’Shede Hageman, Minnesota (Private Visit)• Cassius Marsh, UCLA (East-West Shrine Game)Hageman is the embodiment of the younger, longer, faster mantra that the Cardinals are looking for on the defensive side of the ball.He may be the best pure 3-4 defensive end in the draft, and has Calais Campbell like upside.An undersized 3-4 defensive end who needs to add weight in order to become a legitimate player, Marsh has an unbelievable work ethic and a drive to do well.Linebacker• Ryan Shazier, Ohio State (Private visit) Top Stories 0 Comments Share With the draft a month away, the Arizona Cardinals are revving up their private workouts with prospects.The Cardinals have met with numerous players at the Senior Bowl, East-West Shrine Game and the NFL Scouting Combine, but only get to have 30 private interviews with potential draftees.The Cardinals’ list is interesting thus far as they have met with the following.Quarterbacks• Logan Thomas, Virginia Tech (Campus meeting) The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo • Zach Mettenberger, LSU (Combine meeting)It’s pretty obvious that the Cardinals are looking for big, strong-armed pocket passers. Thomas is still all potential at this point and is much more athletic in and out of the pocket than Mettenberger is, while the LSU signal caller has shown excellent growth from year to year on the field. Running Backs• Tre Mason, Auburn (Combine meeting) • Terrance West, Towson (Private Workout)Both running backs are short, compactly built, between-the-tackle-type backs in the Ray Rice/Frank Gore mold, but Mason seems like a day-two lock at this point and West seems to be the rising small school-type who will go early on day three.Wide Receivers• Bruce Ellington, South Carolina (Private workout)• Ryan Grant, Tulane (Senior Bowl)• Robert Herron, Wyoming (Senior Bowl)• Bernard Reedy, Toledo (East-West Shrine Game)Each of these prospects is what Bruce Arians seems to like in his wide receivers: six-feet tall or under, shifty, good route runners and can take a top off the defense, with the possible exception of Grant.Ellington and Herron are day-two receivers, while Reedy and Grant likely will be available late on day three. Verrett would offer an interesting fit in the slot with the ability to slide outside when needed, but he’s a guy who would be in play at 20, while Dixon is a day-two type, and Lawson is a day-three player.Ballentine is a priority free agent, late-round flyer whose size/length combination is very enticing.With those names, we know of seven of the 30 possible Cardinals workouts. The names are interesting, because outside of Verrett who is a sure-fire first-round corner, and Ellington, a day-two receiver, the names are mostly day-three, smallschool-types with high upside.Keep checking back as we update the private workout list and add scouting reports for the Cardinals pre-draft prospect visits.

22, I think, That is different. Im not criticizing anybody Im just saying That is different than the president wiretapping you which would be a crime outside of a court Well I dont know where these wiretaps came from They came from someplace That is what they should find out And you know the real story here is about the leakers OK You dont write about that But the real story here is who released General Flynns name Who released who released my conversations with Australia and who released my conversation with Mexico To me Michael thats the story these leakers they are disgusting These are horrible people And apparently there is an investigation into that as well Well should be because thats where the whole who would think that you are speaking to the head of Mexico the head of Australia or General Flynn who was they are not supposed to release that That is the most confidential stuff Classified Thats classified You go to prison when you release stuff like that And who would release that The real story is they have to work intelligence has to work on finding out who are the leakers Because you know what When things get involved with North Korea and all the problems we have there in the Middle East I mean that information cannot be leaked out and it will be by this this same and these people were here in the Obama years because he had plenty of leakers also But intelligence has to find out who are these people Because the biggest story here is who is leaking this classified information But isnt there it strikes me there is still an issue of credibility If the intelligence community came out and said we have determined that so and so is the leaker here but you are saying to me now that you dont believe the intelligence community when they say your tweet was wrong Im not sayingno Im not blaming First of all I put Mike Pompeo in I put Senator Dan Coats in These are great people I think they are great people and they are going to I have a lot of confidence in them So hopefully things will straighten out But I inherited a mess I inherited a mess in so many ways I inherited a mess in the Middle East and a mess with North Korea I inherited a mess with jobs despite the statistics you know my statistics are even better but they are not the real statistics because you have millions of people that cant get a job ok And I inherited a mess on trade I mean we have many you can go up and down the ladder But thats the story Hey look in the mean time I guess I cant be doing so badly because Im president and youre not You know Say hello to everybody OK Thank you very much Mr President Contact us at editors@timecomOn Apr 2 the Chinese climber Xia Boyu stood at the entrance of a Buddhist monastery in Kathmandu awaiting his turn for a blessing For the throngs of cross-legged pilgrims thumbing prayer beads on the temple porch the day was the last day of an annual purification ritual For the tourists in khakis the chanting monks and vividly colored silks presented a stunning photo opportunity And for dozens of Sherpas and their clients like Xia who were about to embark on the annual Everest climbing season it was a chance to pray that they would make it back from the mountain alive Xia needed every prayer he could get Six weeks after the blessing at 826 am local time on May 14 he finally made it to the top of the world’s highest peak He was 69 had failed to summit on four previous occasions and was a double amputee missing both his lower legs which were amputated after suffering frostbite in a failed Everest expedition when he was just 25 He also used prosthetic limbs that one expert described as “exactly what does not belong on Everest” because they were modular and liable to freeze up (ever tried to thread a screw at 26000 feet) But his epic triumph has called attention to a small subset of the tight-knit climbing fraternity: disabled climbers The Nepalese government has been trying to ban disabled climbers from the slopes of Sagarmatha ("Mother Goddess of the Earth") as Everest is known locally Xia is not the first double amputee to conquer Everest New Zealander Mark Inglis claimed that title in 2006 Santiago Quintero a climber from Ecuador who is missing parts of both his feet and listed as a double amputee in the Himalayan Database summited from the Nepal side in 2013 But Xia’s triumph has exacerbated an ethical debate that has been raging for several months: Who belongs on the roof of the world Many say Xia should not have been allowed to make the attempt in the first place His critics argue that in his condition he posed unacceptable risks not only to himself but to his support team of 12 Sherpas without which he wouldn’t have stood a chance (Inglis had to be carried down from the summit on the back of a Sherpa after developing frostbite) Last December authorities attempted to bar climbers who are disabled blind below the age of 16 or intending to climb solo from undertaking these dangerous expeditions An outcry ensued and a group of disabled climbers launched a legal action citing a violation of the United Nations convention on the rights of persons with disabilities which protects the disabled from discrimination before the law The nation’s highest court agreed to put the ban under review a hiatus that Xia took advantage of to make his attempt at the summit that had eluded him so many times in the past Trekkers and porters gather at Everest Base Camp on April 25 2018 Hundreds of climbers cleared to scale Everest were acclimating there officials said including a record number of Nepali women climbers Prakash Mathema—AFP/Getty Images Disabled climbers have realized incredible feats In 2001 Erik Weihenmayer was the first blind climber to summit Everest In 2016 Jeff Glasbrenner an American single amputee summited But it is hard to argue with the official preoccupation over safety Never mind legless Chinese men nearing 70: ultimately none of us belong on the mountain Everest kills At 29029 feet its jagged ridgeline tears at the troposphere where climbers must endure subzero temperatures jet stream winds that roar at the speed of category five hurricanes and air that contains just a third of the oxygen at sea level Once human beings enter the infamous Death Zone (above 26250 feet) coughing caused by the cold air becomes so severe that it can crack the ribs and lung lining Hypoxia or lack of oxygen impairs cognitive function sometimes with lethal results Digestion stops climbers can suffer crippling headaches and fluid build up in the brain or lungs (cerebral and pulmonary edemas) can become fatal Rescue if it is even possible proceeds slowly and at great risk to the rescuers who are themselves battling the same horrific conditions At the same time three decades of commercialized mountaineering have created the illusion that anyone more or less can touch the sky Everest has become an antidote to mid-life crises a quotidian item on the bucket lists of superannuated dentists and CFOs Every year hundreds of climbers flock to base camp many of whom have never put on crampons or set foot above 20000 feet Still others climb for the sake of breaking some record "The guy who went up without a leg and he claimed a world record The guy who went up without his arm and he claimed a world record A blind guy went up claimed a world record This year theres a guy who wants to go up in a wheelchair How" Deebas Bickram Shah vice president of the Nepal Mountaineering Association asks TIME "His intention is not to climb Everest His intention is to just get up there just be the record holder That is the type of the thing the government is trying to stop" The Nepalese government has a long history of making hasty regulations in an attempt to reduce the fearsome risks that Everest poses but none have provoked quite as much emotion as its latest attempted ban "You cant just take certain peoples rights away" says Hari Budha Magar a former British Gurkha Rifles soldier who lost both of his legs above-the-knee in an IED attack serving in Afghanistan Magar helped spearhead the legal action and wants to be the first above-the-knee double amputee to scale Everest Renaud Meyer of the United Nations Development Program Nepal agrees "It is a human rights issue Everyone is entitled to travel and exploration” he says “We shouldnt look at it from a disability or a non disability" Not so in eyes of the Nepalese authorities "We need to protect the right of people to live" Dinesh Bhattari the director-general of Nepals department of tourism tells TIME "If a person is unable to see he needs to rely completely on a [Sherpa] If anything happens that will jeopardize the lives of both" It is undeniable that while disabled climbers only account for a tiny fraction of climbers they are proportionately far more likely to die on Everest roughly four times more so According to Himalayan Database’s figures of the total 17675 non-disabled climbers who have ever attempted Everest 288 died Of the total 29 disabled climbers who have ventured up the slopes two died The government is not alone in its frustration In 2013 Rishi Bhandari managing director of Satori Adventures helped the armless Sudarshan Gautam reach the summit The Nepalese-Canadian succeeded only to require rescue while descending at 23000 feet where he fell ill to exhaustion Gautam had to be extracted via longline in the highest altitude helicopter evacuation ever an operation fraught with danger because the thinner air affects the ability of the chopper’s rotors to provide lift Since that emergency Bhandari says taking climbers with major disabilities is not worth the risk "What is the meaning of Sherpa What is the meaning of partnership It means that if the Sherpas have something wrong the clients have to have the capability to rescue the Sherpa" Bhandari tells TIME Xia Boyu crosses a ladder in the Khumbu Icefall in May Courtesy Xia Boyu Although he grew up at the northeastern ridge of the Tibetan plateau in Chinas Qinghai province Xia knew nothing about mountaineering until 1974 when at the age of 25 he got wind of a recruitment drive for the Chinese Mountaineering Team They were conducting free physical examinations which appealed to a young Xia who dreamed of entering professional soccer He never actually expected to be selected but he was "Everest was my first mountain" he tells TIME Less than a year later Xia was stationed at base camp on the north side Everest in Tibet at 16900 feet He was part of a huge team of 434 members 179 of which were climbers It was a massive endeavor that successfully put nine people on the summit eight men and one woman at 2:30 pm on May 27 1975 For Xia though the climb went terribly wrong He was part of a 20-man detachment whose mission was two-fold: establish the highest camp and then summit The team made it to 28215 feet just over 800 feet away from the summit when a storm forced them to bivouac One of the men had lost his sleeping bag Xia whose remarkable ability to tolerate cold had earned him the nickname the Fire God selflessly decided to lend his sleeping bag to his teammate They were stranded for two days and three nights in the death zone and aborted their summit attempt When they eventually managed to return to camp at just over 22300 feet Xia was found to have severe frostbite He was evacuated to Beijing where his lower legs were amputated Mount Everest seen on April 21 2018 Prakash Mathema—AFP/Getty Images Xia is as tough as a man could possibly be He has won awards in China’s National Games for the Disabled in a range of events from shot put to wheelchair basketball He survived cancer in 1996 In 2011 he won two golds at the Paraclimbing World Championships in Italy Hes also hiked crossed the Tengger Desert and the Gobi Desert and scaled several peaks ranging as high as 26246 feet Neither were his previous Everest failures due to his lack of ability During Xias second expedition to Everest in 2014 climbing season was cancelled after an avalanche ripped down the western shoulder and killed 16 Sherpas In 2015 a 78 earthquake devastated Nepal triggering avalanches that killed 18 people on the mountain and destroyed Base Camp On Xia’s fourth attempt in 2016 he got to 300 feet from the summit but a sudden blizzard forced him to retreat Xia’s persistence and ultimate success has given ammunition to opponents of a blanket ban on disabled climbers "Everyone has their own climbing ability and your disability may or may not play into that" says Garrett Madison founder of Madison Mountaineering who successfully led Glasbrennerthe American single amputee to the summit in 2016 without any issues If anything Glasbrenner "performs at a higher level because of his commitment to training and preparation" says Madison "Its just a very gray area" ‘The real problem is inexperience’ Rather than target potentially capable climbers like Glasbrenner or Xia many in the climbing community say more effort could be made to regulate expedition companies who create the illusion that Everest is within anyone’s reach There are no qualifications required to attempt an Everest climb and Nepals lucrative climbing industry is self-policed That spells trouble if the local industry decides to prioritize revenue over safety a temptation in a country where a quarter of the population lives below the poverty line "The real problem is inexperience" says Russell Brice founder of Himalayan Experience and a renowned expedition leader "This is the problem of the operators who encourage and accept these members" Some operators offer bargain expeditions as low as $20000 compared to the median price of $41500 flooding the mountain with travelers who want the bragging rights of having been up Everest but who are unprepared for the dangers One notorious low budget operator Seven Summit Treks has also started targeting the high end of the market It offers a VVIP Mount Everest Expedition open to anyone who wants “to experience what it feels like to be on the highest point on the planet" and who has a "strong economic background to compensate for your old age weak physical condition or your fear of risks" The price A cool $130000 Xia Boyu waves as he sits on an ambulance upon his arrival after successfully climbing Mount Everest in Kathmandu Nepal on May 16 2018 Navesh Chitrakar—Reuters "Everest is not only for people with experience Everest is all ours Everybody can go there" says Mingma Sherpa chairman of Seven Summit Treks tells TIME The company will lead about 100 climbers on Everest attempts this season and he maintains that inexperience is no barrier "If I pay $100000 who is stopping me No one can Its my choice If go there and my commission is good I can

prices of Irish potatoes and tomatoes by about 200 per cent in Plateau a market survey revealed The survey conducted by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) at the weekend in Bokkos found that a bag of Irish potatoes that sold for between N5000 and N6000 not long ago was now being sold at between N16000 and N17000 Similarly a basket of tomatoes that used to sale for between 1500 and N2000 was now sold at between N4500 and N5 000 in Bokkos markets Mr Samuel Mallo the Chairman of Traders and Marketers Association Mai-katako market chapter in Bokkos Local Government blamed the hike on the late arrival of the rains this year He said “the late arrival of rainfall this year has greatly contributed to the hike in prices of Irish potatoes and tomatoes in both Bokkos and Mangu local government areas “All the potatoes you see being sold in Mai-katako market today are irrigated ones and not the seasonal ones which resulted in massive shortage and hike in its price’’ he explained According to Mallo under normal circumstances the seasonal varieties should be in the markets and at a cheaper rate at this time of the year Also Malam Nuhu Usman a potatoes dealer from Kano State lamented the hike in the price of the commodity which he said had affected his purchasing power He said “I used to buy between 150 and 200 bags at times like this but I am not sure I can afford 35 bags of Irish potatoes today’’ Usman expressed fear that the high prices could affect his sales in Kano but prayed that buyers would understand and buy it Another dealer from Katsina Mr Akilu Sani also said he could only buy 15 bags of potatoes out of the 30 bags he used to buy at the Maikatako and Bokkos markets Sani however said it was not the fault of the farmers as the late arrival of the rains had ensured the total absence of the seasonal farming produce NAN reports that Bokkos and Mangu local government areas were prominent for Irish potatoes farming with the commodity produced in large quantities and attract buyers from all parts of the country The markets also attract foreign buyers from Chad Niger and Benin Republic (NAN) The Federal Government has spent N83 billion to

reviewed the contract from N79 billion to N83 billion Speaking through Mr Busari Siriku a Director of Federal Highways in charge of North West Zone Fashola said that the contract was awarded to Mother Cat construction company but was not given enough money by the previous administration He said the current administration had been providing funds to the construction company “The Federal Government

Mr Tunde Balogun said that the road contract was awarded in 2009 while it was in a terrible condition “The mother cat construction company was having funding challenges from the previous government

remains to be rehabilitated In his remarks the Mother Cat site engineer Mr Saed Karen said that the company would soon complete the road as it had been receiving the necessary financial support from

harmless than a turtle (Unless I suppose you’re a nice leafy vegetable) Turtles and tortoises—the main difference is that turtles dwell at least partially in water while tortoises live exclusively on land—are slow-moving peaceful animals whose main form of protection from the outside world is a hard shell Not for nothing do we have the fable of the slow and steady tortoise winning the race Turtles have existed in some form for more than 220 million years outlasting their early contemporaries the dinosaurs Long-lived turtles and tortoises are symbols of perseverance in the natural worldUnfortunately the rules of the race are changing Turtles and tortoises are among the world’s most endangered vertebrates with about half their more than 300 species threatened with extinction Only primates—human beings expected—are at greater risk of being wiped off the planet The threats are many The animals are collected by traders eaten in the wild and in fine restaurants used as pets or for traditional medicine and sometimes simply killed The very adaptations that once made them so successful—their long adult life span and delayed sexual maturity—has made them vulnerable as the world around them changed mostly thanks to human beings Climate change threatens them as well—a recent study found that as the water warms more and more sea turtle hatchlings are being born male which could eventually make it impossible for the species to reproduce successfullyA 2011 report from the Turtle Conservation Coalition makes it clear: we need to act now if we’re to save the turtles and the tortoises:We are facing a turtle survival crisis unprecedented in its severity and risk Humans are the problem and must therefore also be the solution Without concerted conservation action many of the world’s turtles and tortoises will become extinct within the next few decades It is now up to us to prevent the loss of these remarkable unique jewels of evolutionAs we mark World Turtle Day on May 23 spare a thought for these armored but endangered creatures Governor Sullivan Chime of Enugu State has commended Muslims in Enugu State for the contributions they have continued to make towards the rapid development of the state The Governor who stated this in a goodwill message said the contributions of the Muslim community in the state was manifest in their respect for the rule of law and pursuit of peaceful coexistence with their neighbours and people of other religious persuasions In the goodwill message signed by his Chief Press Secretary Chukwudi Achife Chime urged Nigerians to use the occasion of the Ed-il-Fitri celebrations to rededicate themselves to values and virtues that would promote peace and unity among all groups in the country He said the celebrations offered Nigerians the opportunity to reflect on Allah’s love and compassion for mankind adding that they should extend the same attitude to one another The Governor restated the state government’s commitment to protect the interests of all groups and communities in the state Chime said that such disposition had helped to forge a sense of common destiny and partnership among them Iyabo Obasanjo first child of former President Olusegun Obasanjo has berated supporters of the Buhari administration for recycling a letter she wrote in 2013 in defence of the Jonathan government Senator Obasanjo now a university professor based in Virginia United States said this in a statement issued on Saturday Iyabo backed her father’s statement on Buhari and accused the government of failing to adequately address the fundamental issues the ex-leader raised She lamented the cheap tactic of the Buhari apologists in drawing unconnected issues to run away from the “advice and admonishment of one of the most brilliant leaders to ever emerge in modern Africa” Her statement reads: “My attention has been drawn to the republishing (in social media) of a letter from 2013 that has since been overturned by events I am surprised that agents of the current Nigerian administration who should benefit from the advice and admonishment of one of the most brilliant leaders to ever emerge in modern Africa have resorted to a cheap tactic that further reiterates the message that they found abhorrent enough to start looking for unconnected issues to put together to make their point “To say that Nigeria has problems is to make an understatement The wise should listen wherever help and advice come from Those who republished the old letter should have spent time to respond to the content of the said statement which among other things called on President Buhari to join the rank of retired elder statesmen in 2019 I would think this was appropriate and even unnecessary advice given the serious medical problems he has had over the last few years “I have had no connection with his administration or to the previous one after I left the Senate in 2011 and to try and use me and my name as some excuse is shameful I agree with the contents of the open letter and like all people that wish Africa well hope that Nigeria someday comes out of its death spiral to become a leading nation in the world “It is tiring to continue to be part of the Nigerian conversation when there is no positive impact to it I really do not want to be part of it as I have found over and over again that speech and words are wasted on people who have no understanding of the responsibility on us as black people on this planet”

he lost in 2010 to the current chair Representative Ralph Hall (R-TX) who is stepping down after having reached the 6-year limit as the top Republican on the committee Here is an edited version of his remarks Q: Congratulations on reelection DR: Well overall it was a sad affair; it was good for me but not good for the country necessarily I’m very upset that Mitt [Romney] lost but ah well … I guess we have to offer some better alternatives Q: Where do you think you stand in the race for the committee chairmanship DR: I think it is neck and neck between myself and Lamar [Smith] We both have arguments to make on our behalf Lamar does have a small bit of seniority [26 years compared with Rohrabacher’s 24] but I’ve been more active on the committee is recent years … That sort of evens out I guess Lamar has had a chance to be the chairman of a full committee before and I don’t think a lot of people believe it is fair that one small clique of people should be transferring chairmanships among themselves … I think the fact that he’s already been a chairman give me a little edge on the fairness issue which I think is important to some of the people making this decision Now Lamar is from Texas [and] there are a lot of Texans that donate to the party who are going to want Lamar And there are a lot of Californians who donate to the party who are going to want me Most importantly when it comes down to some major issues I think that I offer a great deal more in energy and passion that would help the Republicans shine as compared to Lamar [He] is more someone who is "get the job done" and is more methodical and less passionate And certainly someone who is a very respectable person but not someone who excites people to get involved and get things done Q: Would you agree that you would be more pugnacious and aggressive than Representative Smith DR: Yes I would agree that would not be a pejorative description We have very different styles Lamar would probably stay away from controversial issues and I would want to put them forward and have an honest debate so people could take a look at the issues of the day … I want to make sure that the American people know that the Republican Party has a vision for this country Q: Is Representative Sensenbrenner not a factor DR: I think Sensenbrenner has had his chance He’s already had 4 years as chair of the science committee [from 1997 to 2001] I can’t believe people would bypass people like myself who have never had the chance to have the leadership of a committee to give it to somebody who already has … That would be demonstrably unfair And that’s why I don’t think that would be under serious consideration Q: The science panel is often considered a second-tier assignment and some say it has been pretty inactive the last few years How would you change that DR: If I’m the chairman the science committee will no longer be a backwater committee Some people want to be chairman just to be chairman [But] there are a lot of things that I want to get done and make sure that the money we are spending is not wasted For example I’ve been the chairman of two of the major subcommittees … When I was chairman of the space subcommittee I was able to author the commercial space act and that piece of legislation has been enormously important for the development of a whole new industry … That’s the kind of role I will play in the future I’ll be finding ways of making the science and technology committee a vehicle for Republican solutions to problems as opposed to the Democrats’ bureaucracy and more government spending Q: And how would you recruit members who might be skeptical of joining DR: My pitch to freshmen and everybody else is that the science committee can be a forum for the major science issues of the day We not only will pass reauthorizations for NASA the National Science Foundation the Department of Energy but we can be a forum for points of views … We can lead the national debate on science issues We can have a debate on fracking [the natural gas drilling technique] Let’s have two scientists who say fracking is a danger to the country and two scientists who say it’s the best hope we’ve ever had Let’s put them in a debate forum in front the committee The same should be true of global warming … We would become a science and technology forum as well as an authorizer Q: How much of a priority would you put on the committee’s authorizing role for example reauthorizing NASA’s enabling legislation and the COMPETES Act DR: That’s the fundamental job that you’ve gotta do Before you do anything else you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do You don’t go out to try to change the world until you’ve taken care of the everyday business at hand that you are supposed to be getting done The NASA reauthorization and that type of thing is just fundamental That is where you have a lot of authority; … you are trying to direct the course of events rather than trying to come up with new ideas and new programs Q: And what about the committee’s oversight role—any particular areas you might focus on DR: I would be committed [to oversight] For instance I want much stronger oversight and correction in the development of the small modular nuclear reactors I have been very disappointed that we are moving forward with building reactors that are light-water reactors That is a 60-year-old technology I would be committed to the development and the deployment of a new generation of small nuclear reactors that do not have the drawbacks of light water reactors Q: What about programs like the Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) Do you have views on where it should go DR: That would be an oversight type of thing They need to accountable for the decisions they’ve made and who knows what’s going to happen to [ARPA-E] as we try to deal with the budget My focus would be to make sure that the Department of Energy is not just practicing cronyism Q: Are there other issues you are thinking about DR: One thing I really bring to the leadership is an international perspective If we are going to have major scientific initiatives like [on] space debris clearing—which we need to do—or asteroid defense there needs to be international cooperation I would go out of my way to enlist other countries in cooperative space efforts Q: You’ve been critical of climate and environmental scientists; would you do anything to address that strained relationship DR: My analysis is that in the global warming debate we won There were a lot of scientists who were just going along with the flow on the idea that mankind was causing a change in the world’s climate I think that after 10 years of debate we can show that that there are hundreds if not thousands of scientists who have come over to being skeptics and I don’t know anyone [who was a skeptic] who became a believer in global warming Q: If you lose the leadership race will remain on the science committee DR: Oh yes I plan to be an activist one way or another I love science It’s a savvy move that both satiates and intrigues fans.
