Crumbling infrastructure spewed deadly asbestos

first_imgEarly on the morning of July 19, part of the infrastructure crumbled in New York City’s bustling Flatiron district, a mixed business and residential area. An 86-year-old steam pipe broke, spewing steam, asphalt, mud and toxic asbestos into the air in a jet stream that reached at least 200 feet high. The explosion left a crater the size of a city bus at 21st Street and Fifth Avenue. Several utility access holes in that area also popped open.Since it was relatively early in the morning, stores and offices were closed. Only five people were injured, none seriously. Forty-nine buildings were evacuated. As of July 23, nine buildings have been cleared for re-entry. Several streets that had been blocked have been re-opened.Workers from Con Edison, the city’s billion-dollar energy supplier, and the New York Fire Department are in the process of power washing the outside walls of buildings contaminated by asbestos. They are filtering the water, bagging the asbestos and setting it aside to be buried.Just breathing in one asbestos particle can produce mesothelioma or other types of cancer. According to some health experts, it takes 20 to 30 years to develop diseases caused by repeated asbestos exposure.Con Edison is the company that distributes steam — which is produced mainly as a byproduct of electricity generation. It is used for heat, hot water, air-conditioning and sterilization for 1,700 residential or commercial buildings. Con Edison gets 5 percent of its $13 billion annual revenue from steam.Con Edison sent its Biological/Chemical Weapons Response Team to handle this crisis, even though no government official or agency has suggested that the explosion was caused by a terrorist attack.The New York Times of July 19, 2007, reported there had been at least 12 steam pipe explosions since 1989. All of them spread asbestos. The city’s 100 miles of steam lines consist of asbestos-covered pipes that are at least 50 years old.Con Ed warned 20 years agoIt’s ironic that this steam line eruption happened only a block north of a major water main break followed by a gas line explosion in 1998. The water main was over 100 years old. After the water was turned off, a gas line broke, setting off a fire that took hours to put out. Asbestos was spewed everywhere. Hundreds of offices and stores were closed, Subways were shut down. Traffic was rerouted. Gas, water, electrical, steam heat and telephone services were disrupted.The latest catastrophe wasn’t as intense as the one in 1998, but Con Edison had been warned about these problems 20 years ago and hasn’t done much to avoid them from recurring.Underneath Fifth Avenue, as with many Manhattan streets, are layers of services — water, gas, electricity, telephone, cable, sewerage, subway and other train lines, and pedestrian tunnels. City officials, who are responsible for coordinating all these services, project the attitude that maintenance is costly and not necessary — and that repairs should only be done when the infrastructure breaks down.The city administration prioritizes costs over the quality of lives of the millions of people who live, work, shop in or visit this neighborhood — or anywhere in New York — where they face unpredictable hazards.It has taken many struggles by workers and impacted Con Edison customers to get the utility company to handle asbestos clean-ups even in a minimal way. The asbestos wrappings around the pipes should be removed, the steam lines reinsulated with safe materials and the pipes upgraded. This should be done immediately — despite Con Ed’s opposition because the company considers this undertaking too expensive.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img

The report highlights key factors driving the market growth, and prominent players and their developments in the market. Healthcare workwear protects medical professionals from harmful pathogens. There are various types of healthcare workwear available in the market used to cover every part of the body. Medical professionals choose healthcare workwear according to the requirements of their job.

Masks are generally worn over the mouth and nose to prevent exhaling microorganisms in a sterile environment. Besides, the rising cases of COVID-19 also aid in the growth of the market. Healthcare workwear such as masks, gowns, face shields, and others helps prevent the spread of the virus and provide protection to the healthcare workers, including doctors, nursing professionals, and other hospital staff. Also, ongoing innovations, combined with various advancements in surgery, such as standardizing procedures, technical advances, and high-reliability organizing, are expected to propel the hospital sector’s growth, thereby driving the demand for healthcare workwear.

The growth of the healthcare workwear market is directly influenced by the rapid development in the healthcare sector in developed and developing countries across Asia Pacific.

Day care worker on the run after allegedly beating 8-month-old boy

first_imgRawpixel/iStock(GAINESVILLE, Fla.) — Police are searching for a Florida day care worker who allegedly assaulted a baby boy in her care last week.Erica Hall, a 27-year-old employee at the Cuddly Kids Academy day care in Gainesville, Florida, is accused of physically assaulting an 8-month-old baby and fleeing the scene before police could catch up with her, charging documents show.“It’s like a nightmare,” Laquiesha Davis, the child’s mother, told ABC News Tuesday. “We haven’t been able to sleep. This girl is still out on the run and we won’t be able to sleep until she is arrested.”“This is the type of stuff you see on the news all the time, but you pray and hope that it never hits home. Unfortunately, it hit home,” she added.Davis said the day care called her on Thursday afternoon, asking her if she was aware of a scar on the child’s face. She arrived moments later and made the harrowing discovery: her baby, Jake, was bleeding.She said his face was swollen, his eyes were bloodshot and he had bruises on his neck and head.“When I got there, the director was trying to leave and I told her she wasn’t going anywhere until they told me what was going on with my child,” Davis said. “When I saw my son, I immediately knew that it was child abuse.”“There’s absolutely no reason these people should have neglected my child in the way they did,” she added.Day care workers initially told her that they weren’t sure of what happened to the child, according to Davis, but she demanded to see the surveillance footage.What she saw made her stomach churn. The footage showed Hall, who was gone by that point, reaching into Jake’s crib and mashing his face multiple times, according to Davis. She said she saw the woman’s hand rise and fall on her baby’s head at least three times with force so strong that it caused his head to rock.Davis said her baby hasn’t been the same since the incident. She’s waiting for tests to come back to confirm that there are no internal injuries.Now, the mother of three said she’s considering taking legal action against the day care. She said officials there waited two hours before calling her and accused them of trying to “sweep the case under the rug.”Officials at Cuddly Kids Academy said they were working with law enforcement to investigate the incident, but did not respond to ABC News’ request for additional information.“We are deeply saddened by the recent incident that occurred at Cuddly Kids Academy. Our thoughts and prayers are with the impacted family,” the day care said in a statement Tuesday. “We will continue, as we have from the beginning, to work with the appropriate authorities and regulatory agencies in every way.”Hall, who is wanted on child abuse charges, according to court records, had not been apprehended as of Tuesday night.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

Valkenswaard United Unbeatable in 2021 GCL Opener in Doha

first_imgValkenswaard United seized the GCL ranking lead in spectacular style in Doha today with unbeatable performances by the team’s top guns in the opener of the 2021 championship race.Heavyweights Peder Fredricson and Marcus Ehning took full advantage of the extraordinary horsepower of Hansson WL and Stargold with flawless rounds to seal the coveted first win of the season.A delighted Marcus Ehning said “It’s always great to be here in Doha. I think I can talk for everyone to say it is a very special event. Peder made my life easier he jumped a fantastic clear round, I know my horse is fast but you also need some luck. I am really lucky to be in a strong team like this. We have 6 very strong riders and I am very lucky to ride with them.”Peder Fredricson explained after his round: “It’s really amazing to be back jumping at top level sport again. It is fantastic to ride with Marcus and I am really looking forward to the rest of the season!”Fans around the world lapped up the welcome return to GCL action and the highest level of team show jumping. The first leg left no doubt that this year’s GCL championship will be a titanic fight for dominance as team owners, managers, riders and trainers set their sights on victory and fantastic prize money.As the sun started to set across Qatar’s capital city Doha, the stunning Longines Arena at Al Shaqab lit up as 15 teams came forward to battle it out for the first time in the 2021 season. Unliano Vezzani’s challenging course saw only two teams manage to jump double clear with the competition full of shock results and cracks under pressure with dramatic changes up and down the gird.Here’s how the competition unfolded:Paris PanthersFirst of the competition to go Gregory Wathelet knew that only a faultless round would do for the Panthers. Nevados S was looking fresh and skipped his way around the huge sand arena opening up to the last fence and producing the all-important clear. Handing over to Penelope Leprevost and the athletic stallion Vancouver de Lanlore they also made it look easy and the team stayed on the same 12 faults carried forward from round 1 in a time of 148.73s.Hamburg GiantsSuus Kuyten was delighted with her round with Alfa Jordan despite 6 faults. Experienced Dutch rider Bart Bles set off at a pace with Kriskras DV, but it all came apart as they picked up two early faults seeing the team tumble down the leaderboard ending today on 22 faults overall and at the bottom of the leaderboard.Prague LionsThe Lions pulled in Anna Kellnerova and Catch Me If You Can Old and the swap paid off as the combination flew round the 1.55m / 1.60m course clear. In excellent form, Delux T & L and Niels Bruynseels secured the second clear helping the Lions finish on 8 faults and 7th place overall.London KnightsWinners here 12 months ago the Knights pulled in Lorenzo De Luca and Nuance Bleue VDM Z but they couldn’t keep all the fences up as the GCL upright coming out of the double fell piling the pressure on teammate Olivier Philippaerts and H&M Legend of Love. But there was disappointment as the pair also picked up four faults leaving the team on a total of 16 overall.Scandinavian VikingsTeam owner Geir Gulliksen and VDL Groep Quatro took centre stage as the sun began to set across the arena. A rattle at the GC Prague Playoffs upright and the penultimate fence put the team out of contention for a podium today. Henrik von Eckermann and King Edward looked determined as they set off at a pace and took a stride out to the final fence clearing it with ease slotting the team in 10th place.Monaco AcesThe Monaco Aces kept everything exactly the same as round 1 not making any rider or horse changes. U25 rider Jeanne Sadran and Vannan got deep into a fence early on knocking a pole and piling the pressure on teammate Jos Verlooy. Jos and Varoune knew a fast clear would keep them in contention for a podium place and they finished 5th overall.Miami CelticsA new face on the GCL team this year young Polish rider Andrzej Oplatek and Stakkatan also got caught out by the GCL upright and the wide GC oxer then fell as well immediately dropping the Celtics down the order. Maurice Tebbel had his hands full with a fresh Don Diarado. His tight roll back to the penultimate fence didn’t pay off as it fell and the team finished with 12 faults.Doha FalconsA fast four for Titouan Schumacher with Atome Z and a clear from Constant van Paesschen riding Isidoor van de Helle put the home team on a score of 8 overall. Constant clearly had the team strategy and tactics in mind, riding a speedy round to help them slot into 6th place.Madrid In MotionPrevious GCL Super Cup winners Madrid In Motion knew they had a good opportunity to start the season on a high and kept their team exactly the same as last year. Eduardo Alvarez Aznar shook his head as he exited the arena on Rokfeller de Pleville Bois Margot, the team now on 8 faults leaving the door open for other teams to take the read more
