Susan Tompor Detroit Free Press Published 12:38 PM EDT Sep 20, 2018 Any thrill about seeing the Dow on the verge of breaking its record high pretty much goes up in smoke once you consider the buzz around pot stocks. Weed stocks, such as Canadian-based Tilray, are lighting up the market and giving plenty of 20-year-old speculators reason to believe, hey, maybe I can retire by 30. The FIRE movement — "financial independence, retire early" — takes on a whole new meaning for those investing in cannabis companies. Make 10 times your investment in a matter of months? What are you smoking? No doubt, the Dow is grabbing the spotlight too. The Dow Jones industrial average was at 26,648.13 points shortly after noon Thursday — up 242.37 points or 0.92 percent. If the Dow holds steady by the end of Thursday, it could close above its record of 26,616.71 on Jan. 26. Really? Stocks keep going up even though the Federal Reserve is likely to … [Read more...] about Marijuana stocks like Tilray are buzzing
Nicquel Terry and Christine Ferretti The Detroit News Published 4:00 p.m. UTC Aug 21, 2018 Detroit — Amid promises to be better a neighbor, a controversial incinerator just beyond downtown is being accused by the state of having "insufficient" control measures to limit its foul odors. The state Attorney General's Office submitted a notice this summer to Detroit Renewable Energy on Russell Street informing the plant of a state determination that it needs upgrades before the facility can be released from a 2014 consent judgment. State environmental officials say their findings are supported by a two-year assessment of odor complaints received by the Department of Environmental Quality "attributed to operation of the incinerator." But company leaders at the facility, which came under new ownership last year, say they are working to fix the issues and want to do better for the community. Chief Operating Officer … [Read more...] about Detroit incinerator seeks odor fix as neighbors raise stink
John Carlisle Detroit Free Press Published 9:00 p.m. UTC Aug 2, 2018 They don’t want to flee from Detroit. They’d like to continue the work they came here to do. But the devil is doing his best to stop them. “I just wanted to make a change, man,” said Apostle Michael Beasley, the 55-year-old pastor of Total Life Change Ministries on the city’s west side. “I want to stay, but I can’t tell you I don’t get moments where I’ve thought about leaving.” His church is located inside a defunct elementary school near Greenfield and Tireman. Just a few years ago, he had a nice home and a successful church in the suburbs. Then, he said, he heard the voice of God tell him to move to Detroit, buy this massive school and help rebuild a neighborhood. He followed the call. And his church has been beset by thieves and robbers ever since. Over and over, someone keeps breaking into the building, methodically stealing the copper pipes … [Read more...] about After 20 burglaries, a Detroit church struggles to survive

Picture: Siorna Ashby Archant Newlon Housing Trust has been accused of ‘astonishing’ neglect of the Barnsbury Estate. Tenants in other Newlon blocks elsewhere in Islington have alleged the same. The Gazette asked neighbours and campaigners: ‘What’s going on?’ A fly-dump in the Barnsbury Estate, pictured on Sunday. Picture: Siorna Ashby Damp flats, cockroach infestations, fly tipping and dangerous stairwells. This is the alleged scale of neglect suffered by tenants and leaseholders in the Barnsbury Estate. Newlon Housing Trust, the housing association that owns the estate, has been accused of overlooking it all. It strongly denies this (see below). But Islington Liberal Democrats chair Alain Desmier, a regular visitor to the estate for recent casework, said some of the faults were “astonishing”.
