President Donald Trump touted his pro-fracking policies at a campaign rally in Johnstown, Pa. Oct. 14, 2020.

York Daily Record

With the election weeks away, fracking has once again become a hot button issue for President Donald Trump’s campaign. 

In a Tuesday rally in Johnstown, Pa., Trump drilled former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign, saying Biden promises “no more fracking” in Pennsylvania if elected. 

“This went on for a year and a half, no fracking, no fracking, no fracking,” he told the crowd. 

Fracking is the act of extracting Marcellus shale natural gas by way of hydraulic drilling, or fracturing. Pennsylvania is the second top producer of natural gas in the country.

MADEIRA BEACH, Fla. — More than 40 Madeira Beach businesses are worried they’re going to lose their waterfront property if the city doesn’t step up to help with a major sand blocking and drainage issue, which they say is creating a beach, where there once was water. Now, they are begging the city to fix it.

Business owners along John’s Pass say that over the years, the water running through John’s Pass has continued to deposit sand clear up to the seawall, creating what they say is a dangerous beach area, and eliminating their waterfront property.

“Where I’m standing right now, it should be about maybe 10-12 feet deep,” said Captain Dylan Hubbard, Owner of Hubbard’s Marina.

Supporters and opponents of Colorado’s statewide ballot measures have pumped $41.7 million just this year toward swaying public opinion on issues that could have far-reaching implications if passed in November.

During a presidential election year in which issues such as abortion access hang in the balance, and at a time when many families are struggling to make ends financially, Colorado’s ballot questions are taking on heightened importance. Measures such as a 22-week ban on abortions and having Colorado support the national popular vote for president are receiving attention — and contributions — from across the state and country. With less than a month to go, advocates are making their final pushes to Election Day — including in the money race.

The committee fighting the proposed ban on abortions after 22 weeks has brought in the most contributions of any issue committee at almost $6.5 million in 2019 and 2020, while

Joe Biden’s advisers are telling their Wall Street supporters that barring an “October Surprise” the former Vice President will handily beat President Trump in the 2020 election and  — once elected — immediately propose significant tax increases on the wealthy as well as major corporations because he believes income inequality is a “moral issue,” FOX Business has learned.

The comments were made by Biden advisers in recent days to various financial executives who have raised money for the campaign. They come as internal and external polls show Biden’s lead widening in the 2020 presidential election over Trump, particularly after the raucous presidential debate last Monday and following Trump’s recent COVID-19 diagnosis.

SYDNEY, Oct 7 (Reuters)The Australian government will issue bonds worth A$240 billion ($170.4 billion) in the current financial year, surprisingly unchanged from earlier projections despite a massive increase in spending to bolster the coronavirus-ravaged economy.

The Australian Office of Financial Management (AOFM), which manages the government’s debt, said on Wednesday the weekly bond tender would be between A$3 billion and A$4 billion in most weeks for the remainder of the 2020 calendar year, from A$4-A$5 billion now.

The AOFM added that A$117 billion of the A$240 billion expected issuances for the year-ending June 2021 has already been undertaken.

“An unchanged issuance task and no new bonds this calendar year mean a flatter curve and tighter spreads,” said Robert Thompson, Sydney-based rates strategist at RBC.

AOFM’s unchanged issuance target comes despite a larger-than-expected budget deficit estimate for the 2020/21 fiscal year of A$213.7 billion

Money still talks to voters. A new Gallup analysis released Monday reveals that the economy emerges as the No. 1 issue for voters as Election Day approaches, now just four weeks off.

“As the nation remains in a pandemic-induced recession, U.S. registered voters say the economy is the most important issue of 16 that may potentially affect their choice for president. Nearly nine in 10 registered voters consider the presidential candidates’ positions on the economy ‘extremely’ (44%) or ‘very’ (45%) important to their vote,” writes Gallup analyst Megan Brenan.

Among Republicans, 93% cited economy as their main interest, along with 85% of Democrats.

As it has been in past months, this is helpful factor for President Trump. Multiple pollsters have consistently confirmed over time that voters gave Mr. Trump higher ratings than Democratic presidential nominee Joseph R. Biden in economic matters. In some cases, Mr. Trump led his

If Demeter has anything to say about it, the coming years’ harvests will be fruitful for both small farmers and the consumers who value the way they operate. But in this instance, it’s not Demeter, the Greek goddess of harvest behind the cultivation, but a small team of Forbes 30 Under 30 list members who gathered this weekend using the same name to take the first steps towards creating a new kind of investment vehicle powered by blockchain.

While retail and institutional investors alike already invest billions of dollars annually in agribusiness funds, largely consisting of the companies farms rely on, the cost of complying with fund requirements excludes most farms. While some of these funds allow investors to back smaller market cap companies, many independent micro-farms must resort to using state lenders and expensive farm banks or agriculture lenders. 

By issuing digital assets backed by actual harvests, using an
