CREATOR OF ICONIC MISTER SOFTEE JINGLE HAS DIED

We almost missed this. Thanks Lisa!

Les Waas, the Philadelphia advertising executive who wrote an iconic jingle that many consider the sound of summer, died earlier this month. He was 94. 

Waas composed the Mister Softee song (which has lyrics) for a radio commercial in 1960 and the tune still rings throughout neighborhoods five decades later, beckoning residents to buy a cool treat on hot summer days. The ice cream truck company, which was started by two brothers in Philadelphia and is now headquartered in Runnemede, N.J., has more than 600 trucks operating in 15 states.

WANT MORE WIND ENERGY INVESTMENT? KILL EAGLES...

U.S. wildlife managers on Wednesday again proposed granting 30-year permits to wind farms that would forgive them for thousands of eagle deaths expected during that time frame from collisions of the birds with turbines, towers and electrical wires.  The proposed rule, like one struck down by a federal judge last year, would greatly extend the current five-year time frame in the permits required under U.S. law for the “incidental take” of eagles, including those killed by obstacles erected in their habitat.

Wind energy companies have pressed the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to lengthen the terms of the eagle permits, saying a five-year duration left too much uncertainty and hampered investment in the burgeoning renewable power industry. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/wind-farms-permits-kill-eagles_us_572b49d4e4b016f37894c858
