The State Department said that Tillerson would "play no role in the deliberations or ultimate resolution" of the application from TransCanada, the company seeking to build the international energy pipeline. Tillerson is the former CEO of ExxonMobil, the oil company that at least one green group stated posed a conflict of interest with.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
