Udall, Wyden, Merkley Urge Interior Department To Suspend Policy Actions Unrelated To COVID-19 Response

U.S. Sen. Tom Udall


WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Sen. Tom Udall (D-N.M.), ranking member of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Interior, Environment and Related Agencies, along with Senators Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) and Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.), wrote a letter to U.S. Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt urging the U.S. Department of Interior (DOI) to immediately suspend any policy proposals or actions unrelated to the COVID-19 emergency that require a public comment period until the threats of COVID-19 have subsided.

The senators sent the letter as New Mexicans and Americans across the country are focused on the safety and well-being of themselves and their families during this global crisis, meaning public comment periods on policy actions at this time cannot fully reflect public opinion and meaningful participation. 

In New Mexico, DOI oversees approximately 27 million acres, about 34 percent of the state’s total lands. Just last week, the

Summer Wind: Bathroom Organization

Bathroom Organization

I so enjoy organization. It’s weird, I know, but it feels so good to know everything has a place and is in order. I figured I would share with you all little bits from our master bathroom. 

This is a space I don’t love because we have done absolutely nothing in there yet. It’s all basically builder-grade and just boring. The size is nice as is the amount of storage, though. I am currently trying to decide if we want to paint or wallpaper the bathroom. I really want to wallpaper it but I am concerned about how well the wallpaper will hold up since we use the shower daily. So we’ll see! 

While you all have some extra time at home to organize, I thought I would share my two bathroom drawers filled with beauty and skincare and how I organize them! 

I also wanted to share the little

Kookkunst – Wikipedia

Tweede nationale kookwedstrijd voor huishoudscholen in de Houtrusthallen te Den Haag (1954)

Kookkunst is de kunst om voedsel te bereiden, waarbij de nadruk ligt op het optimaliseren van de smaak. Koken is een veelheid aan kooktechnieken. Door kooktechnieken te variëren en ingrediënten te combineren, ontstaan diverse gerechten en per land of streek keukens, zoals de klassieke Franse keuken, de Hollandse pot of de Aziatische keuken. Gastronomie is de leer van de verfijnde keuken, van smaak en van het proeven der dingen.

Koken, evenals andere bereidingswijzen van voedsel, had in prehistorische tijden waarschijnlijk als doel het beter verteerbaar te maken, het langer te bewaren en het lekkerder te maken.

In de tijd van de Grieken ontstond koken als kunst. De Romeinen namen dit van de Griekse beschaving over en met de invoer van een grote diversiteit aan producten uit alle delen van het rijk kwam de kookkunst tot bloei. Na de

How to Bring the Vision of an Instagram Decor Influencer Into Your Home

Ms. Merhi is not widely known in the interior design world, with no profiles in magazines like Architectural Digest or Better Homes & Gardens. Yet her Instagram following dwarfs those of better-known designers with large social media platforms like Justina Blakeney’s Jungalow, with 1.3 million followers or Bobby Berk of “Queer Eye,” with 2.6 million followers.

She doesn’t see herself as overlooked by the design community, but instead as someone who operates outside if it. “It doesn’t tap into the everyday person’s home, the millions and millions of people out there who don’t have a multimillion-dollar home and a multimillion-dollar budget and want that look,” she said. Those homeowners “are more in need of me and what I can do and what I can offer.”

Ms. Merhi, 36, credits a childhood spent in Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of Congo for her sense of style. Her parents, both Lebanese, moved
