SELC plans to sue Burlington over PFAS, 1,4-Dioxane pollution in drinking water, sludge

DEQ cites Greensboro and Reidsville for illegal discharges of 1,4-Dioxane into Haw River and its tributaries The Southern Environmental Law Center plans to sue the City of of Burlington for discharging perfluorinated compounds — PFAS — and 1,4-Dioxane from its two wastewater treatment plants into the drinking water supply, unless state regulators intervene first. Last week, the SELC filed a Notice of Intent to sue the city over alleged violations of the federal Clean Water Act. The SELC is representing Haw River Assembly in its legal action. The SELC could also sue the city under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), which governs the disposal of solid waste and hazardous waste. Contaminated sludge and biosolids from the city’s wastewater treatment plants is also applied on fields, ostensibly as a soil builder. Although the EPA doesn’t regulate PFAS or 1,4-Dioxane under the federal Safe Drinking Water Act, the compounds are subject to provisions of the CWA, which covers rivers, streams and lakes. Referring to the compounds as “unregulated” can mislead the public into thinking there is no legal way to stop the contamination from entering the waterways. Burlington’s ...

Analysis on the World Injection Molding Machine Industry (2019-2025) with a Focus on China

Dublin, Nov. 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Global and China Injection Molding Machine Industry Report, 2019-2025″ report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering. As the most important plastic machinery, injection molding machine has a percentage of 40% to 50% in the total output value of plastic machines in China. Chinese injection molding machine industry was developing apace with the full-year output outnumbering 130,000 units in 2017, but it has suffered a setback from the second half of 2018 when the Sino-US trade war started and deteriorated quickly and when the demand from downstream sectors like automobile and 3C slowed down, thus leading to a fall both in output of injection molding machines and orders for them. The industrial situation is still austerity in 2019 when the annual output drops further and will take a nosedive of roughly 10%.Confronting the weak domestic demand and the depressed export, the Chinese manufacturers of injection molding machine strengthen their competitiveness through more efforts in the R&D and innovation of products as well as an exploration of overseas markets. During 2018-2019, the leaders such as ...

Teodor Currentzis Brings His Intense Verdi to New York

Teodor Currentzis rejected the idea that there is anything provocative or theatrical about his conducting. Since the early nineteenth century, when conductors began leading symphony orchestras in concert, they have been the subject of fascination, myth-making, and no small degree of cliché. The conductor is an oracle and interpreter, a guide and disciplinarian—and, for me, a novice aficionado of classical music, a necessary hand in the dark and a useful focal point. The conductor’s high status was codified in “Crowds and Power,” the Nobel Prize–winning author Elias Canetti’s book from 1960, which declares, “There is no more obvious expression of power than the performance of a conductor.” Canetti writes of how the conductor’s “attention is everywhere at once. . . . inside the mind of every player.” I thought of Canetti as I made my way, one recent evening, to the grand hall of the St. Petersburg Philharmonic, a soaring, colonnaded space built in 1839 for the city’s nobility. It’s a confection of tsarist excess, replete with heavy velvet curtains and droopy chandeliers. Yet the hall has been the site of far more than mere celebration and delight: in 1942, with the city—then known...

It can be relatively easy to experience medical benefits from cannabis. A puff or two of

It can be relatively easy to experience medical benefits from cannabis. A puff or two of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)-rich flower can do the trick for a lot of people. Smoking marijuana, however, is not the be-all and end-all of cannabis therapeutics. There are many ways to experience the medical benefits of cannabis, and some of them are even non-intoxicating. In recent years, the advent of potent cannabis oil concentrates, non-intoxicating cannabidiol (CBD) products, and innovative, smokeless delivery systems have transformed the therapeutic landscape and changed the national conversation about cannabis. It’s no longer a question whether marijuana has medical value. Now it’s about figuring out how to optimize your therapeutic use of cannabis to suit your lifestyle and situation. Optimizing therapeutic cannabis use can be a challenge – for doctors as well as patients. Most physicians never learned about cannabis in medical school and, according to a 2017 survey, few feel they are qualified to counsel patients about dosage, CBD:THC ratios, different modes of administration, and potential side effects. “Dosing cannabis is unlike any therapeutic agent to which I was exposed in my me...

The 2020 Cadillac CT5 has a tough assignment. Not only does it need to replace two

The 2020 Cadillac CT5 has a tough assignment. Not only does it need to replace two cornerstones of Cadillac’s sedan lineup — the now-discontinued ATS and CTS sedans — but it needs to offer a compelling alternative to midsize luxury sedans such as the BMW 5 Series and the Audi A6. To that end, the CT5 will offer two engines, three trim levels and more room than the outgoing CTS. The interior appears substantially better than the ATS and CTS cabins. The CT5 also comes with all the business you’d expect of a midsize luxury sedan: heated, ventilated and massaging front seats; a 10-inch infotainment display; optional leather upgrades; and optional all-wheel drive for wet-weather climates. We haven’t driven the CT5 yet but expect it to maintain Cadillac’s modern character of crisp-handling sedans with precise steering. Driver-selectable modes will optimize steering, transmission, and even brake calibration at the touch of a button. The Sport trim will even come with high-performance Brembo brakes. A future CT5-V high-performance variant will ramp up the performance numbers, although not to the degree of the outgoing 640-horsepower CTS-V. Another of the CT5̸...

Next Generation Cat Mini Excavators Designed for Optimum Value

Four new models in the Cat mini hydraulic excavator lineup, engineered and manufactured by Caterpillar, are designed to provide users the best performance, versatility, safety, operator convenience — and affordability — in the smallest possible packages for 1-to-2-ton class machines, according to the manufacturer. This customer-centered approach to engineering results in the new models incorporating new standard features, such as joystick steering (stick steer) and a tilt-up canopy or cab, as well as new options, including air conditioning and expandable undercarriages across the range. The new model range allows customers expanded choices for matching machine capabilities and machine features to the applications: 301.5 (1.5-ton class, standard tail swing, with canopy); 301.7 CR (1.7-ton class, compact radius, with canopy); 301.8 (1.8-ton class, standard tail swing, with either canopy or cab); 302 CR (2.0-ton class, compact radius, with either canopy or cab). Minimum operating weights (approximate) for the new models range from 3,500 to 4,500 lbs. (1 5,75 to 2,045 kg), with weights increasing to 3,900 to 4,900 lbs. (1,760 to 2,200 kg), depending on specific machine configuration...

Your Birkin bag, your Chanel flats, your Alaïa bandage dress, your Rick Owens leather leggings—all your

Your Birkin bag, your Chanel flats, your Alaïa bandage dress, your Rick Owens leather leggings—all your expensive so-called investment clothing was, in the olden days, an investment in name only. If you went up a size or down a size or just experienced a fashion rethink, there was no recourse; your wardrobe was largely illiquid. Other terrible things could happen. You might be an influencer and your followers could get tired of seeing you drag around the same Gucci clutch, but it cost so damn much that you had to wring all the value out of it. Or you might realize that you weren’t giving every Cathy Waterman stud in your collection sufficient ear time and yet were hankering for an Anita Ko climber. One recent Wednesday morning, a young woman named Chasity Saunders was addressing a situation like this. She had a pair of bedazzled multicolored Christian Louboutin booties that she loved but no longer love-loved, and she had mixed feelings about a pair of Fendi pumps and a Tom Ford foldover tote, and was concerned that a gold ring from an ex-boyfriend might be blocking her energy in such a way as to inhibit her from starting a new relationship. She was meeting with Sarah Ro, who wor...
