Company's illegal practices behind fatal chemical plant blast
CHENGDU, July 17 (Xinhua) -- The Ministry of Emergency Management on Tuesday said that a company responsible for a fatal blast in southwest China's Sichuan Province had been involved in illegal production.
The blast killed 19 and injured 12 on July 12 at the Hengda chemical plant in an industrial park in Yibin City. Hengda, registered in June 2015, mainly produces chemical products.
Officials with the ministry said the blast was a production safety accident caused by serious violation of laws and regulations.
A preliminary investigation showed that the company lacked the conditions or ability to ensure safety in production, and production facilities were not installed with adequate safety equipment.
The investigation also showed that the local government lacked safety awareness and relevant departments failed to conduct adequate supervision.
The provincial government organized an investigation after the blast, and a number of suspects have been detained.

China detains suspects after blast at chemical plant
BEIJING, China – Authorities have detained "several" suspects in wake of an explosion at a chemical plant in southwest China that left 19 dead and injured 12 others, state media said.

The blast occurred at 6:30 pm (1030 GMT) Thursday, July 12 at an industrial park in Sichuan province's Yibin city, according to a statement on the website of the local work safety administration.

Photos on a local news website showed what appeared to be the burned out shell of a building surrounded by rubble.

The building was owned by chemical manufacturer Hengda, which was "conducting illegal construction at the plant which had not passed safety and fire control checks", the official Xinhua news agency said late Friday, July 13, citing local authorities.

Sediment remains a big problem for Baltimore waterways
BALTIMORE (WBFF) - It was a sight that made everyone in Baltimore do a double-take and ask, "What is that?"
Turns out it was sediment leaking into the harbor last month. It was being illegally pumped into the city's storm drains by a construction crew.
"We see things like this all the time, just on a smaller scale," said Alice Volpitta, the lead water-quality scientist with Blue Water Baltimore.
The sight prompted a hazmat scare, second looks and plenty of questions at the end of June.
"People saw this white plume coming out in the harbor and obviously they freaked out," Volpitta said.
The discolored water was caused by a construction crew over a mile away discarding sediment into a storm drain.
"This was illegal and it shouldn't have happened," Volpitta said.
She adds it's a daily battle fighting this type of stormwater pollution.
"We're really trying to get the word out to people all over the city that our storm drains are our streams. So, our streets are our streams. What that means is, anytime you put anything down your local storm drain it's going right into the nearest waterway," she said.

How do Undocumented Immigrants Pay Federal Taxes? An Explainer | Bipartisan Policy Center
The IRS estimates that undocumented immigrants pay over $9 billion in withheld payroll taxes annually. Undocumented immigrants also help make the Social Security system more solvent, as they pay into the system but are ineligible to collect benefits upon retiring. In 2010, $12 billion more was collected from Social Security payroll taxes of undocumented workers than were paid out in benefits.

Chemical Company Owner Charged After Bombs Are Found in Home – Philadelphia Magazine
David Surman Jr., 30, of Milford Township has been charged with four felony counts of unlawful possession or manufacture of a weapon of mass destruction and misdemeanor counts of reckless endangerment and other crimes on Thursday, after what Bucks County district attorney Matthew Weintraub called an “around-the-clock surveillance” effort in a months-long investigation by local law enforcement officials, state police, the FBI, and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.

Surman is the owner of Consolidated Chemicals and Solvents, a chemical, metal and solvent supplier based in Quakertown. According to charging documents in the case, authorities raided Surman’s business and home on Thursday. At Surman’s residence, investigators found 10 firearms, four explosive devices and methamphetamine. One of the devices they discovered on the property was 18 inches long, had the capability to cause “mass destruction” and was “ready for detonation,” Weintraub said.

Also at Surman’s home, authorities say, they found a binder with images of swastikas, a fake press release about a bombing, and a strange computer-generated image depicting Surman and his girlfriend fleeing a massive explosion. The girlfriend is cooperating with investigators, the DA said, and has not been charged in the case.

LUCKNOW: Three persons were dead and scores injured following a massive blast at a house being used as an illegal godown of firecrackers in a village under Kakori police station on Lucknow outskirts on Monday. While two adjacent buildings collapsed under the impact of the blast, another under-construction
structure came down crashing.

The blast occurred at around 11 am in the basement of a house where explosives and other material used in making the firecrackers were stored. While a police team rushed to spot to undertake a probe and ensure rescue and relief operations to extricate those trapped in the debris, ATS officials later joined the
police team, inspected the site to ascertain the reasons of the blast and the type of explosive.

As per the police sources, the explosives were of very high intensity but the ATS sleuths ruled out any terror angle. However, there was huge cloud of smoke which was billowing from the house in which
the blast occurred and it continued for many hours. While the two of three, who fell victim to blast, were identified as Ram Sharan (35), and Nasreen (18), the third one could not be identified as the body was burnt beyond recognition in

When the Car Radio Was Introduced, People Freaked Out

Is texting while driving total insanity or just one more inevitable tide of modern life? (Spoiler alert: It's total insanity.) But was the radio met with similar opposition when it was first introduced to the car?

Mind-Bending Tape Art
In 1930, laws were proposed in Massachusetts and St. Louis to ban radios while driving. According to automotive historian Michael Lamm, “Opponents of car radios argued that they distracted drivers and caused accidents, that tuning them took a driver’s attention away from the road, and that music could lull a driver to sleep.”
