Acting EPA Chief Pledges 'Change of Tone' in Communications
She noted that one option the agency is considering is extending to December 31, 2019 the compliance date for the 300-unit limit. In several instances, reporters who learned where Pruitt would be speaking were removed from the event or denied access.

According to Space.com, the Russians had tried twice before to achieve this speedy feat, but had been thwarted on both occasions by lift-off delays that meant it was necessary to turn the trips into two-day missions. The craft has brought over 2.5 tons of water, fuel, food and other supplies, extending the entire crucial provision supply to at least mid-January 2019. The "Progress" was launched at 2151 GMT on Monday from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan and arrived at the space station in the early hours of Tuesday, the agency said.

Russia's space agency Roscosmos said the faster maneuver became possible thanks to a new version of the Soyuz booster rocket, noting that it puts the ship into the orbit with a higher precision. In February, a Progress MS-07 launch was cancelled at the last minute after another attempt in October 2016.
