On January 22, 2014, the Associated Press reported that coal-fired power plants are dumping enormous quantities of pollutants into U.S. waterways. According to the Associated Press, the EPA says that coal-fired power plants are dumping nearly 2 million pounds of aluminum, 79,000 pounds of arsenic, 64,000 pounds of lead and even 2,820 pound of mercury each year into U.S. waterways.

This original story by the AP (dated January 18, 2014) was published, word-for-word, across the Denver Post, ABC News, the Washington Post, the San Jose Mercury News and even Salon.com.

There's only one problem with all this reporting: nobody bothered to check their sources.

The Great Depression was a worldwide economic depression in the decade before World War II. In most countries the Great Depression began after the stock market crash in the U.S., and lasted until the late 1930s or middle 1940s. It was the longest, deepest, and most widespread depression in American history.

The Great Depression had devastating effects in many countries as personal income, tax revenue, profits and prices dropped, while unemployment in the U.S. rose to 25%, and in some countries rose as high as 33%.

Construction came to a halt in many countries and farming and rural areas suffered as crop prices fell by about 60% and areas dependent on primary sector industries such as c

16-years ago today, October 29, 1997, and nearly four decades after he became the first American to orbit the Earth, Senator John Hershel Glenn, Jr., was launched into space again as a payload specialist aboard the space shuttle Discovery. At 77 years of age, Glenn was the oldest human ever to travel in space. During the nine-day mission, he served as part of a NASA study on health problems associated with aging.

It was on February 20, 1962, John Glenn Jr. became the first American to orbit the Earth, inspiring generations of citizens and setting the nation’s human space flight program on a path to a successful moon landing a mere seven years later.

Long before Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal, consideration had been given to developing the economy along the Columbia River by building dams for flood control, irrigation, navigation, and power generation. In 1929, the Army Corps of Engineers prepared a report that recommended 10 dams along the river. No action was taken, however, until the Roosevelt administration.

In 1934, two huge projects were started: Grand Coulee Dam in north central Washington State and Bonneville Dam, which would span the river between Washington and Oregon at a spot 80 miles upstream from Portland. Construction of the Bonneville Dam began in June 1934, and took three years. The construction drew 3,000 workers, man

Although there is considerable evidence that Paleo-Indians lived in the Pacific Northwest 15,000 years ago, the first record of human activity within the boundaries of present-day Oregon came from archaeologist Luther Cressman's 1938 discovery of sage bark sandals near Fort Rock Cave that places human habitation in Oregon as early as 13,200 years ago. Cressman found more evidence of early human activity at Paisley Caves, north of Paisley, Oregon, caves where researchers affiliated with the University of Oregon have conducted new excavations during the 21st century.By 8000 B.C. there were settlements across the state, with the majority concentrated along the lower Columbia River, in the weste

WALLOWA COUNTY, Oregon - It was 1881 and the Townfolk thought the man by the name of John Hawk was stealing cattle. Seems he refused to talk about it much so one night, a group of cattlemen slithered into his camp and killed him.

Nearly everyone agreed that John Hawk was the meanest, most unpleasant man they’d ever met.

That, as much as anything else, was why he was about to die, on a cold, clear, moonlit night by the Lostine River in 1881.

Hawk was 31 years old at the time, a native Oregonian born in 1850. He’d boldly gone deep into Nez Perce tribal lands and staked a claim, rather a dangerous thing to do in the days of Chief Joseph, and started ranching on Prairie Creek, three mil

Women who'd married German men suddenly learned they'd been legally (and very unconstitutionally) made stateless, and were forced to register as "enemy aliens"; those who'd married Chinese men fared even worse.

Nobody remembers it today, because it was so long ago. But the outbreak of the First World War changed Oregon – and the rest of the United States – a great deal.

News of America’s entry into the fight was greeted with excitement, eagerness and dread. But there was one particular group of Oregonians for whom the dread was particularly pronounced: The German-American community.

The German-born cohort of Oregon residents was bigger than any other foreign-born group, totaling 18,
