The Favourite - Explaining the Ending
By the end of the film, all three women are... stuck in their own personal hell.
Abigail, who escaped her horrible marriage and a life of sexual submission is now slave to another master. “My life is like a maze I continually think I’ve gotten out of only to find another corner right in front of me,” Abigail tells her miserable new husband mid-way through the film. By the end... her life of luxuries is dependent on the queen’s favor and she remains trapped in submission; still locked in her maze of sexual servitude.
Sarah, who cared about queen and country above all else, is exiled from both. Sarah was willing to sacrifice her husband to the war if it was the necessary price, she loved her queen very literally for most of their lives, and now she is banished from her life there. Her hell is in her absence.
As for the queen, her health is rapidly degenerating and she is more or less helpless without Sarah’s stern missives to follow. Left to her own devices, Anne binges on blue cake, throwing up between bites. Left in Aibigail’s care, the queen asks what would happen if she fell asleep in her mud bath and slipped under. “Imagine it’s hot chocolate,” Abigail says. To be with Abigail is to drown and choke on your indulgences. Without Sarah to care for her, Anne really and truly is left with no one who loves her, just her rabbits — the stand-ins for her true happiness — and the very manifestation of her trauma and grief take over the screen until they multiply and are all that remain.

Local News: Chemical leak at Bainbridge Utilities prompts evacuations (12/16/18)
A serious chemical leak that recently occurred in Bainbridge is now being assessed as town officials and first responders continue to address the situation.

At about 1:39 p.m. Sunday afternoon, the Bainbridge Fire Department was toned out to a Hazmat call from municipal utilities employees, who reported that a chlorine leak had occurred near Bainbridge Town Hall.

According to Putnam County Emergency Management Director Tom Helmer, Bainbridge units quickly arrived on the scene to find that three employees had been exposed to the chemical.

Hazmat teams from Greencastle arrived on the scene at approximately 3 p.m. after the leak had been controlled shortly before. The Banner Graphic arrived shortly thereafter to acquire information on the situation.

Helmer related that about 150 to 200 people east of the Dollar General on Pat Rady Way, north of U.S. Highway 36 and along 200 East to 800 North were evacuated from their homes and businesses to the Bainbridge Fire Department to be checked out.

Philippi Police wearing hazmat suits due to intensifying meth problem
PHILIPPI, W.Va (WDTV) - West Virginia has a drug problem and the opioid crisis is one of the most talked about.

One local police department tell us that meth is making a comeback and it's making them take extra steps to keep the community safe.

Before going into the department's evidence room, he dressed head to toe in a full hazmat suit.

"I went in to process some evidence and when I was done, I started feeling not normal," said Chief Jeff Walters.

"I won't say we're winning the war, but we're definitely winning some battles," Walters said.

They have to make sure they're covered before coming into contact with it. In his time as chief, he has never seen the meth problem so bad.

"The drugs in Philippi have gone up dramatically," he said. "I've been here for 23 years and I've not seen it like this."

"The officers will be out here booking somebody out here in our booking area and you walk by them and they actually smell like methamphetamine where it's coming out of their pores."

On top of adding the vent and suiting up, Walters says he knew something had to be done after a few minutes in the evidence room turned into an experience he'd never forget.

"My teeth went kind of numb, my lips were going numb, I got a little edgy, and at that point I knew I had a little bit of exposure."

In the end, he reminds everyone that it's all to protect the community.

"In order to be able to protect the citizens, we have to be healthy. We have to take the precautions necessary to keep us healthy."

Wolfville firefighters assessed after refrigerant leak
Four firefighters were taken to hospital as a precaution after a refrigerant leak in Wolfville Tuesday night.

Wolfville fire chief Todd Crowell said his department was called at about 8 p.m. to Cuts Meat Market on Main Street, almost directly across from the fire station, after someone reported smoke in the building. That smoke turned out to be the gas leaking from the refrigeration system in the basement.

The gas expanded into the upstairs, but Crowell wasn’t sure how much of the 800 pounds of refrigerant leaked before firefighters were able to shut down the system.

He said there was a failure of some sort within the system that caused the leak.

The refrigerant — known as R507 — is less potent than freon, Crowell said, but can still cause nausea, shortness of breath, dizziness, severe headaches or unconsciousness if too much is inhaled.

Industry: TSCA 'high-priority' designation must not carry risk presumption
Industry groups throughout the supply chain have called on the US EPA to provide routine communication to the public that a high-priority designation under TSCA does not equate to a finding on that substance’s risk.

The comments come in response to the EPA’s ‘working approach’ for prioritising substances for risk evaluation, which lays out both a short- and long-term plan.

And while many of the comments focused on the agency’s plans to ‘bin’ substances on the TSCA inventory, others flagged up concerns around public perception of the prioritisation process.

The US Chamber of Commerce, for example, called on the EPA to "consistently communicate that the agency’s selection of candidate chemicals for possible review are not determinations of risk or safety."

And the Downstream Users Coalition – representing trade groups covering paper, plastic, toys, tyres and automotive equipment – agreed that its member companies and the public will benefit from such messages.

In the light of this, the coalition called for "proactive procedures to help to reduce concerns from consumers and the potential for adverse commercial effects related to premature product deselection or substitution decisions."
