Bush, US President: "Are people driving these things?" (Answer: "We are starting production this spring.)" 5. Side view of Bush speaking to reporters 6. SOUNDBITE: (English) George W. Bush, US President: "But what we are talking about is practical and necessary for our country. So thanks for coming. Americans ought to feel optimistic about our future. We are going to be driving our cars using all kinds of different fuels other than gasoline and using batteries that will able to be be recharged in vehicles that don't have to look like golf carts." 7. Pan view as Bush walks away STORYLINE: There were some unusual vehicles on the South Lawn of the White House on Friday. US President George W. Bush got a close look at two alternative-fuel cars as part of his drive to raise awareness about alternative fuelled vehicles. Before the inspection, Bush convened a White House meeting of transportation fuel experts and researchers. They discussed hybrid engines, battery design and other technologies which the president hopes will lessen the US thirst for oil. "Americans ought to feel optimistic about our future. We are going to be driving our cars using all kinds of different fuels other than gasoline and using batteries that will able to be be recharged in vehicles that don't have to look like golf carts," Bush told reporters. Bush said his goal of reducing petrol use by 20 per cent over the next decade was realistic. Bush's energy proposals, made in his State of the Union address last month, include ramping up the production of alternative fuels such as ethanol made from new, non-corn feedstocks. The proposal calls on Congress to require the annual use of 35 billion gallons (133 billion litres) of ethanol and other alternative fuels such as biodiesel by 2017, a fivefold increase over current requirements. The hybrid car that Bush inspected had a high-power lithium-ion battery made by A123 Systems. It can power the car for about 40 miles (64 kilometres) and recharge in five hours. The white truck, made by Phoenix Motorcars Inc. has a range of 130 miles (209 kilometres) and can be recharged in about 10 minutes with a rapid-charging unit or trickle-charged overnight with its onboard charger. On Thursday, Bush visited a North Carolina plant that's researching enzymes to break down items like corn waste and wood chips to produce ethanol.

Manage Your Forest for Pine Straw and Rake in the Profits
 
01:10:22
Tired of raking those hardwood leaves in your yard? Maybe you should consider raking pine straw from your forest instead! Pine straw is a non-timber forest product that is produced when southern pine trees such as longleaf, slash, or loblolly pines drop their needles in the fall. The resulting pine straw can be raked by hand or harvested using a mechanical raking machine and turned into bales. Landowners can manage their forest to harvest and then sell the straw on a per-acre basis for a nice profit. These bales are purchased by retailers, landscape contractors, or homeowners to use as landscape mulch. But pine straw is not the only profit potential in your forest. Management opportunities for other non-timber forest products abound including nuts, fruits, specialty wood products, floral and decorative items, and dietary supplements.

BTEC Gives Students A Competitive Edge
 
02:18
Employers looking for new hires with experience reaching beyond the classroom need to look no further than NC State, where biotechnology students have a significant advantage thanks to hands-on training at the Golden Leaf BTEC. Located on Centennial Campus, the Golden Leaf Biomanufacturing Training and Education Center (BTEC) is the largest facility of its kind in the nation and the state's hub of biomanufacturing research and training. Through partnerships between NC State, North Carolina Central University and the North Carolina Community College system, BTEC's distance education and on-site programs will train as many as 2,000 students, prospective and current employees per year. "The center will be a major new force for statewide economic development and job creation in the biomanufacturing, pharmaceutical and related agricultural industries," NC State chancellor James L. Oblinger said. "Through partnerships with industry, other academic institutions and with support from Golden LEAF, we're creating a tremendous opportunity for North Carolina to lead the world in biomanufacturing." The Golden LEAF BTEC trains workers by simulating a biomanufacturing pilot plant facility capable of producing biopharmaceutical products and packaging them in a sterile environment. It also includes support training and education classrooms, laboratories, building and process utilities. North Carolina ranks among the top three biotechnology regions in the United States and is home to some of the world's largest companies, including Novozymes, Wyeth Vaccines, Biogen-Idec and Merck. The BTEC facility will be outfitted so that students will gain experience using the same large-scale equipment they would use on the job at any of these companies. "NC State's legacy is one of listening and responding to the needs of North Carolina," Oblinger said. "BTEC is a perfect example. This type of education and training exists nowhere else in the country at this scale and should serve as a magnet for new business expansions and relocations by this critical sector for our state's economy."

Jon Stewart Is None Too Impressed With Donald Trump Or Hillary Clinton
 
01:36
"Are you eligible to run if you are a man-baby? Uhh, a baby-man?" Jon Stewart said about Donald Trump while speaking at the University of Chicago.  During a live taping of David Axelrod's podcast, Jon Stewart gave his take on the presumptive GOP nominee. "He makes sense if you view it through the prism of talk radio. ... We are falling. There are rapists and murderers at the border coming to kill you. If that's what you've been fed, and that's what you're buying into, Donald Trump makes more sense than anybody else out there," Stewart said of the GOP front-runner.  The whole idea of political correctness is everybody's so sensitive. Just get over it. Why should African-Americans be so sensitive about police shootings? Donald Trump couldn't handle us making a joke about him. Graydon Carter did a joke about Donald Trump's hands 25 years ago. He's still not f***ing over it," Stewart said during "The Axe Files" podcast live taping.  Stewart says he's not impressed with Hillary Clinton's campaign either.  "What I think about Hillary Clinton is I imagine to be a very bright woman without the courage of her convictions, because I'm not even sure what they are. And maybe I'm wrong, maybe a real person doesn't exist underneath there. I don't know." Stewart said of the Democratic front-runner.  "That is not to say that she is not preferable to Donald Trump. Because at this point, I would vote for Mr. T over Donald Trump," Stewart said.  This video includes images from Getty Images.  Newsy is your source for concise, unbiased video news and analysis covering the top stories from around the world.

Interview with Aubrey Wiggs, 2011 Apprentice at Stages St. Louis. The Stages St. Louis apprenticeship program offers rich and challenging experiences for qualified college students, recent college graduates, and young professionals who are actively pursuing careers in professional theatre. Through this 26-week program, aspiring arts administrators, theater artists, and technicians have the opportunity to work closely with Stages' staff and artists, as well as regionally and nationally acclaimed production professionals. Spotlight immerses participants in the production process and the culture of patronage, providing a 360 degree view of the non-profit theatre. The program offers hands-on experiences in a busy season environment, and includes individualized mentoring, software and other technical training, and self-directed projects. The current apprentice, supported by the Boeing/Arts and Education Council Collaborative Grant, has already completed numerous projects, serving as a teaching artist for a week-long Academy program, developing support materials for grant applications, and assisting with donor engagement events. Of her apprenticeship, Aubrey Wiggs commented, "This experience is like no other arts internship I've had before, and truly valuable to my future career aspirations in theatre. It's already surpassed my expectations as to what I thought I would learn. I really appreciate the access to all Stages' staff, a highlight of which was attending the recent Kevin Kline Awards with Executive Producer Jack Lane." The Boeing Company has generously donated $125,000 to the Arts and Education Council to benefit the Council's annual fundraising campaign. A portion of the donation ($50,000) will be used to fund the fourth year of the Boeing/Arts and Education Council Collaborative Grant program -- an innovative funding opportunity for arts organizations to create and promote a more sustainable arts and cultural environment that engages people to become lifelong arts participants, patrons and practitioners. "We have long held that investing in the arts positively impacts economic development and growth, produces a creative and diverse workforce, and nurtures the imagination and self reflection needed to solve complex personal and community issues," said George Roman, state and local government operations vice president and St. Louis regional executive at Boeing.

The Future of LIHEAP Funding: Will Families Get the Cold Shoulder this Winter?
 
01:17:07
The Future of LIHEAP Funding: Will Families Get the Cold Shoulder this Winter? - Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming - 2008-09-25 - The dramatic increase in the price of oil this summer caused consumer havoc at the pump. Now, as the winter months quickly approach, families are facing the cold reality that the cost to heat their homes will skyrocket as well. Home heating oil prices are expected to spike upwards of .60 per gallon this winter, a record. That could drive the total heating costs for average families above ,000. The Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming held a hearing looking into immediate funding concerns of the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) as well as long term reform measures to help families cope with rising prices. The hearing featured Governor Deval Patrick from Massachusetts, where 4 out of 5 homes use heating oil or natural gas. In 2005, 5.3 million households received LIHEAP heating or winter crisis assistance, yet this represented only 15 percent of federally eligible households. Representative Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) and 94 of his Congressional colleagues sent a letter calling for full funding of LIHEAP at .1 billion to stave off what could be a disastrous winter for millions of American families. Last year the program only received billion in regular funds. The crisis is not just isolated in cold-weather areas, however. WITNESS LIST: Honorable Deval Patrick, Governor, Commonwealth of Massachusetts; Mr. Howard Gruenspecht, Acting Administrator, Energy Information Administration; Mr. Mark Wolfe, Executive Director, National Energy Assistance Directors' Association; Mr. John Drew, Executive Vice President, Action for Boston Community Development, Inc.
