Watch This

 A group at MIT is working to develop a way for local communities to keep tabs on extraction industries operating in their area.  The Landman Report Card is:

the first in a suite of applications designed to help communities affected by extractive industries to recognize, report, and act on their interests. LRC allows landowners to document, discuss, and rate their experiences with landmen, the professional negotiators who work for oil and gas companies. We are currently deploying the application in communities in several states in the US.

Once fully developed, this and similar programs could be an invaluable tool to people across Arkansas.

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
  • Arkansans join House vote to gut Americans with Disabilities Act

    Despite fierce protests from disabled people, the U.S. House voted today, mostly on party lines, to make it harder to sue businesses for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. Of course Arkansas congressmen were on the wrong side.
