    The center of a Quebec town has been wiped out, according to the mayor, after a runaway freight train carrying crude oil derailed and exploded in a fireball at 1am on Saturday. One person was killed and about 30 buildings were destroyed as the unmanned train exploded. About 60 people are believed to be missing, but the force of the fire has slowed rescue efforts. Parts of the town were evacuated in the early hours as fireballs shot several-metres in the air, flames spread to nearby homes and thick acrid smoke filled the air in Lac-Megantic, which is close to...

    An American hero, Colonel Harry Tunnell IV, Commander of the 5th Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division, documented the truth about the war in Afghanistan. What Obama is really doing in Afghanistan is treasonous. Dated August 20, 2010, a letter was written to John McHugh, Secretary of the Army, signed by Colonel Harry Tunnell IV. In the letter, four significant factors about military operations in Afghanistan were revealed. 1. When US soldiers arrive in Afghanistan, they are told that they are fighting for the Afghan people: “Soldiers join the military today to protect the United States, yet they are told once in...

    The answer is yes - negatively. In this case, negative is good. The more negative it is, the better. We know that because of a lot of hard work and number crunching by Linoge at Walls of the City blog. He has just put out his Graphics Matter, Year the Third. He has examined the available data from the last 28 years and has thoroughly debunked the gun prohibitionists' theory that more guns equals more deaths. His analysis leads him to conclude: 1. The hypothesis of "more guns = more deaths" is demonstrably false over the past 28 years of...

    KABUL, Afghanistan, July 8, 2010 – A joint assessment team composed of International Security Assistance Force and Afghan security forces members has determined that an air strike that killed six Afghan soldiers and injured one other this week was the result of miscommunication between ISAF and Afghan forces. Afghan soldiers planned a patrol and had coordinated the patrol’s location with ISAF elements. When the information was passed to the local ISAF unit, the wrong location was identified for the Afghan patrol, officials said. When an ISAF helicopter patrol came across a group of individuals digging beside the road in an...

    It's been a year since Jeffrey and Christine Konrath of Slinger died in a motorcycle crash in Dodge County. Except for the fact that they weren't drinking, the Konraths could be the face of motorcycle fatalities today: older riders - he was 45, she was 48 - on a larger bike, killed on a rural road. And neither was wearing a helmet. It's that last point that most frustrates Christine's daughter Angeline Schreiber. She has little tolerance these days for motorcyclists who forgo protective gear. "I would never tell people not to ride bikes," said Schreiber, who is raising her...

    HOUSTON -- Relatives of 140 workers who died on the job in Texas were denied more than $17 million in compensation benefits because of the state's narrow definition of who can receive the money, a Houston Chronicle analysis has found. Typically, only spouses and minor-age children are eligible for the lump-sum compensation, often more than $100,000 per worker, according to state law. Parents and older children must demonstrate financial dependence on the killed worker to receive benefits.

    Americans who buy the smallest cars on the market are twice as likely to have fatal accidents as drivers of midsize and larger vehicles, according to a report being released today by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The data and increased sales of the fuel-efficient "minicars" prompted the institute to test, for the first time, eight models to determine which are safest. Minicars typically weigh about 2,500 pounds or less, half the weight of large pickup trucks or SUVs such as the 4,500-pound Ford Explorer... In the testing, only the Nissan Versa received "good" ratings in front, side, and...

    Article excerpt from Logic Times. The Iraq Body Count study reports 24,865 civilian deaths in the first two years of the Iraq War, an apparent ringing endorsement of the "Iraq in chaos" position. But a curious statistical anomaly jumps right off page one: over 81% of the civilian casualties are men. Even stranger, over 90% of civilian casualties are adults in a country with a disproportionate percentage of the population under 18 (44.5%). This contradicts a basic tenant of the civilian casualty argument, namely that we are describing collateral damage during a time of war. Collateral damage does not differentiate...

    We all have an impression of what constitutes a dangerous job. Usually we base our feelings on three types of information. First, what we actually experience, since we all face various hazards during our daily tasks. Second, we all read and watch news accounts of mishaps. Third, we see different lists, charts and graphs that depict who gets killed and how frequently. The Bureau of Labor Statistics recently released one snapshot, based on 2002 data of on-the-job fatalities per 100,000 workers. The verdict: people who cut down trees, with a rate of 118 deaths per 100,000 workers. This is more...

    The US Army has dispatched a team of medical experts to Iraq to investigate a spate of serious pneumonia cases among its troops. Military officials say two soldiers have died of the pneumonia and more than 100 are ill. Army medical authorities say they are concerned because the pneumonia is attacking healthy, young soldiers, which means it is likely to be a virulent strain. Authorities say there is no evidence of chemical, biological, or environmental toxins involved in the troops' illness, and SARS [severe acute respiratory syndrome] has also been ruled out.
