The new restrictions follow an accident Sunday morning in Naha in which a Okinawan man was killed when his vehicle was struck by a truck being driven by a U.S. service member. Alcohol may have been a factor. Commanders across Japan will immediately lead mandatory training...

    Molten steel shower kills 32 workers in China 52 minutes ago At least 32 workers were killed and two injured Wednesday when they were engulfed by molten steel at a metal factory in northeast China, the government said.

The molten steel then engulfed an adjacent room where all the victims were gathered for a routine shift change, the State Work Safety Administration said in...

    Please pray for Casey's family. He was a great kid--a talented chef with goals of his own. The probability walking home from a diner on a sidewalk in a blocked-off construction zone then getting hit by a car seems impossible. But impossible things happen. He was doing nothing wrong, taking no risk, and a drunk driver came out of nowhere. Witnesses said that the driver got out of the truck when it hit the building and told bystanders not to call 911 because he was ok.
