  • Your New Scoop Site

    Welcome to Scoop!

    To help you figure things out, there is a Scoop Admin Guide which can hopefully answer most of your questions.

    Some tips:

    • Most of the layout is changed in "Blocks", found in the admin tools menu
    • Features can be turned on and off, and configured, in "Site Controls" in the admin tools menu
    • Stories have an "edit" link right beside the "Full Story" link on an index page, and right beside the "Post a Comment" link on the full story page. They can also be edited by clicking the story title in the "Story List" admin tool
    • Boxes are what allow you to write new features for Scoop; they require a knowledge of the perl programming language to work with effectively, although you can often make small changes without knowing much perl. If you would like a feature added but cannot program it yourself, ScoopHost does custom Scoop programming as one of its services.
    • If you aren't sure where to look for a particular feature or piece of display, try the "Search Admin Tools" link in the admin tools menu.

    Grab A Seat, This Will Be Great Fun To Watch

    The Jenny Green Jobs push with our coerced tax dollars is alive and well.

    Michigan Democrats said Monday they want to continue specifically targeted tax incentives for advanced battery manufacturers, putting them at odds with Republican Gov. Rick Snyder and GOP lawmakers who control the Legislature.

    The industry-specific tax credits are among those scheduled to be phased out under tax policy changes Snyder has signed into law. It's part of a strategy to lower overall business taxes and leave more flexibility for economic development incentives beginning with the fiscal year that starts Oct. 1.

    Democrats say that's a mistake when it comes to the advanced vehicle battery business, which has begun growing in Michigan with the help of federal grants and state incentives. The Democratic plan also would include tax credits for buying electric vehicles and charging stations.

    This is at odds with Governor Snyder?  I doubt it with him sitting at 10.9% unemployment and a dwindling labor force that his bassackward 'reinvention' scheme of 'too divisive' Willy Milquetoast leadership has yielded.  Besides, Snyder and his cronies from Ann Arbor SPARK are going on a junket to commie China for a reason.

    Don't ever discount anything that the 'One Tough Nerd' once said.

    Yessiree, folks.  Yet another Green Job PPP (Public Private Partnership) in Michigan is swirling down the commode.

    Solar energy products manufacturer Energy Conversion Devices Inc. -- the firm that invented the battery technology used in most hybrid vehicles on the road -- said Tuesday it plans to sell its profitable battery subsidiary.

    But of course, all smart, successful corporations deep-six the profitable side of their business.  Nah, it couldn't have anything to do with a realization of Chevy Volt sales or the death of a Ponzi scheme in Salinas, California.

    In May, the company announced plans to lay off 300 workers, including 115 in Michigan, after posting a $243 million quarterly loss and suffering the effects of cutbacks in government incentives overseas. The company primarily makes, sells and installs thin-film flexible solar products and systems to the building and rooftop markets and now has about 1,300 employees.

    Solar.  Ya, that side of ECD, Inc. leeching $37 million out of taxpayers pockets belongs to Debbie's friend Jenny.

    But this battery thing...
