Air Pollution: World pollution deadlier than wars, disasters, hunger
NEW DELHI: Environmental pollution — from filthy air to contaminated water — is killing more people every year than all war and violence in the world. More than smoking, hunger or natural disasters. More than AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria combined.
One out of every six premature deaths in the world in 2015 — about 9 million — could be attributed to disease from toxic exposure, according to a major study released on Thursday in The Lancet medical journal. The financial cost from pollution-related death, sickness and welfare is equally massive, the report says, costing some $4.6 trillion in annual losses — or about 6.2 percent of the global economy.
"There's been a lot of study of pollution, but it's never received the resources or level of attention as, say, AIDS or climate change," said epidemiologist Philip Landrigan, dean of global health at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, and the lead author on the report.
The report marks the first attempt to pull together data on disease and death caused by all forms of pollution combined.

The battle was over, and Thorin Oakenshield awoke, naked and shivering, in the Halls of his Ancestors.

The novelty of being dead fades quickly, and watching over his companions soon fills him with grief and guilt. Oddly, a faint flicker of hope arises in the form of his youngest kinsman, a Dwarf of Durin's line with bright red hair.

(Follows the story of the War of the Ring).

Ammonia leak leads to local state of emergency in Kootenays

As a result, all residents in homes and businesses between 9th and 13th streets, as well as Highway 3 to 6th Avenue, have been evacuated until Tuesday.

In a statement, Labour Minister Harry Bains about the fatalities within the community.

“The circumstances surrounding the accident at the Fernie Memorial Arena (FMA) are still under investigation, while HAZMAT teams [and WorkSafeBC] address a suspected ammonia leak.”

Alone in This War
He went to sleep that night numb, Ori pressed against his back and Nori behind him, with the smell of death still around him and did not dream. When he woke up the air was clear, the sky still dark and he was bedded down in armor he had not been wearing. Pushing himself up too abruptly, he rubbed a hand over his eyes and looked around at the guard tower in Erebor where they had bedded down and waited for war to come to them. Thorin stood, framed against where the dawn was starting to appear, talking quietly to the raven and Dori could not breathe. His fingers were shaking against the cold stone and he could not catch his breath for Thorin stood alive in front of him, hair long and not matted down in blood, flesh and body whole.

Three dead in ammonia leak
The city of Fernie has confirmed that three people have died following an ammonia leak at the local hockey arena.

Several rescue crews, including a hazmat team, are now on scene at the Fernie Memorial Arena. Officials added that the site has been secured, but crews are not yet able to safely enter the facility. All homes in the area bordered by 9th Street, 13th Street, Highway 3 and 6th Avenue were included in the evacuation.

Evacuees are being asked to check in at the Senior Citizens Drop-in Centre at 562 3 Avenue. The nearby Red Apple, 7-11 and Trinity Lodge have also been evacuated.

CIMCO Refrigeration is on scene assisting city crews, and the city is working to acquire additional specialized resources to deal with the hazardous situation.

Several streets surrounding the arena have been shut down, and the public has been asked to avoid the area. As soon as they become available, this story will be updated.

Wheat Dust Allergy Leads to Worker Death
When introducing a new chemical or raw material into the work environment, a risk assessment must be completed to eliminate or reduce workers’ exposure.

At the National Safety Congress in Indianapolis, OSHA investigators presented some of their most interesting cases. For Allen Grisar, Region V OSHA compliance officer, one of the most unexpected cases he has come across happened at a company involved in grain processing for the malting industry.

In September 2014, a worker, who had been with the company for four years, developed asthma and subsequently died from a severe asthma attack at the facility. His job role involved transferring grains to malt practices.

The company had introduced wheat and barley into its malting operations just months prior to the incident. Just four months before his death, the worker had a severe asthma attack on the clock, which was treated at work.

 “Company did not conduct an incident investigation or send worker for further evaluation after May 2014,” Grisar told attendees.

The OSHA investigation discovered many issues that the led to the fatality. First, preplacement medical exam were not provided to contract clinicians conducting respiratory clearance examinations, he said.
