    The Lahontan Regional Water Quality Control Board recently released the “Deed Restrictions” for George Air Force Base that are required by the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) §120(h). Because of these CERCLA §120(h) Deed Restrictions, we now know that there were numerous Completed Exposure Pathways (CEPs) to the George AFB personnel, their families, civilian employees, and the surrounding community. The contaminated buildings, soil, air, upper and lower aquifers (these contaminated aquifers were the source for municipal and domestic drinking water supply wells for George AFB, Adelanto, several homes, and the Victor Valley Country Club) provided the Completed...

    GOP: Obama, Democrats view energy as 'hazardous waste'By Vicki Needham - 04/07/12 06:46 AM ET Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin said President Obama's policies are the cause of rising gas prices, not a lack of energy resources. Fallin said Saturday that the problem stems from a lack of leadership and questioned Obama's role in increasing the nation's energy output and in the hold up of the Keystone XL pipeline, especially as gas prices hover near an average of $4 a gallon. In the weekly Republican address, Fallin said our pro-energy policies stand in stark contrast though to the policies supported by...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) Hazardous material, but not a bomb, was found in a bag at an airport in Bakersfield, California, Fox News reported on Tuesday, citing the U.S. Transportation Security Administration. Security jitters have hit the United States since a botched attempt on Christmas Day to blow up a Detroit-bound flight from Amsterdam using explosives smuggled on board. Washington, blaming the incident on a wing of al Qaeda, has ordered additional screening measures for passengers. Fox quoted the TSA as saying it had found a hazardous material in a checked bag at Meadows Field airport in Bakersfield, California, but that...

    http://www.ananova.com/news/story/sm_1986597.html Gravedigger buried himself A Dutch gravedigger had a lucky escape after he accidentally buried himself. The 62-year-old man, from Nieuwleusen, was digging a grave in Zwolle cemetery when it happened, reports Gva.be. A trailer containing the earth he had removed tipped over and fell into the grave, knocking over the man and covering him completely. Luckily, a workmate was able to move the trailer and uncover the gravedigger's face to let him breathe. He called the fire brigade who managed to free the man after an hour. He was unhurt apart from a bump on the head.

    The Marines were waiting for their pre-patrol brief in their operations center flak jackets and helmets bunched against the wall and rifles leaning against them. Some were drinking Mountain Dews and laughing and others were battling on the Sony Play Station. It was an average scene, save for the sergeant leaning in his chair practicing marching tunes on his clarinet. Thats because this isnt any ordinary guard force the Marine Corps has trained for quick reaction emergencies, this is the 2nd Marine Division Band.

    Want to purchase some locally produced, organic fertilizer for you garden? Unfortunately it contains arsenic, lead and mercury amongst other interesting additives. And it may spontaneously explode and burn while in storage. Not interested? Then how about buying acclaimed Foodland Ontario vegetables and fruit, grown on a less refined version of the same natural fertilizer? These are not available at present, as Torontos sewage pelletizer, which made the fertilizer, burned down in July 2003. And biosolids cake, the less processed poop, is not exactly popular with the provinces farmers. But they could be coming soon to a store near you,...

    When theyre out of public view dealing with controversial items in camera, the high hand displayed by some Toronto City councillors is disturbing. Humiliated by revelations from the expensive ongoing public inquiry probing the MFP computer scandal and its recent testimony about an "intimate" relationship between former Toronto City Treasurer Wanda Liczyk, and a lover, who shared with a colleague some $3.8 million in untendered contracts, city council is going a long way to keep its $95-million biosolids scandal under wraps. "Biosolids" is the more palatable name given by bureaucrats to human excrement, which is used to fertilize farmers fields....
