10:35 pm
river, filed a motion with the federal energy regulatory commission, or ferc, requesting that the oroville dam emergency spillway be upgraded. the authors of the motion noted that the hillside just below the lip of the spillway is unprotected soil and that water released over the spillway could do significant damage there. they worried that "the amount of soil, rock, and debris that would fall into the feather river could be very large, depending on the depth of erosion. there could be damages to downstream structures." they also worried that if the spillway itself wasn't improved, managers might eventually lose control of it.despite these concerns, neither the ferc, the army corp of engineers or the california department of water resources made any of the suggested upgrades among other reasons for not making the changes, officials pointed to federal regulations which allow emergency spillways to be built to lower standards. the federal guidelines for dam safety states that "emergency spillways may be used to obtain a high degree of hydrologic safety with minimal additional cost. because of their infrequent use, it is acceptable for them to sustain significant damage when used and they may be designed with lower structural standards than those used for auxiliary spillways."in a press conference on monday, california department of water resources acting director bill

10:59 pm
a month plus taxes and $40 for an additional line.so if you just have one line sprint offers the cheapest unlimited plan. but since t-mobile prices include all fees and taxes if you have two lines they are the best deal. now a couple important notes here. you can only get at&t's unlimited plans if you also subscribe and pay for their home tv or internet services they offer through uverse or direc tv.sprint offers the cheapest single plan but with their unlimited data you can only stream sd quality video. so if you want hd, the best video image possible when streaming videos to your phone. avoid sprint. all of the carriers will throttle the data once you reach a certain amount of gigs in the month. here are those numbers.. you can see t-mobile gives you the most before they throttle. throttle means once you hit that amount of gigs of data your phone will start to act slower when web surfing or streaming video. with all the free wi-fi everywhere it's hard to use this many gigs but if you are heavey user of cell network data.. then
