Lead in Tap Water: What Parents Should Know | Children’s Health Initiative

Lead-contaminated water is not unique to Flint, Mich., or Newark, N.J., where excessively high levels of lead contaminate drinking water. Millions of Americans may unknowingly be drinking water contaminated with lead, either because of old lead pipes or from faucets and other plumbing fixtures with high levels of lead. Lead is especially dangerous for children, and its devastating harm can last a lifetime.   Scientists, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, agree that any amount of lead in the blood during childhood is harmful. Children are particularly vulnerable during the first six years of life, because their brains are in critical stages of development. Even tiny amounts of lead in kids’ bodies are harmful. Lead exposure can alter a child’s behavior, ability to concentrate, memory and learning. Moreover, the harmful effects of exposure are irreversible and can continue well into adulthood. The American Academy of Pediatrics has recommended that drinking water given to children contain no more than 1 part per billion, or ppb, of lead. Children are commonly exposed to lead in dust or soil contaminated with lead paint, but drinking water can also be a signi...

Vaping Cases Linked to Vitamin E, Bootleg Cartridges?

Editor’s note: This story was updated Sept. 6, 2019 with New York’s investigation into vitamin E as a possible link in the vaping cases. Sept. 5, 2019 — As vaping-related lung illnesses continue to climb in the U.S., public health officials are narrowing in on two possible links: vitamin E and black-market vape cartridges. In New York, where 34 cases of the severe lung disease have been reported Department of Health officials said they are focusing on vitamin E acetate after finding it in nearly all of the samples it analyzed linked to the illnesses.  Although its safe to take as a vitamin or use on your skin, “the Department continues to investigate its health effects when inhaled because its oil-like properties could be associated with the observed symptoms,” it said in a statement. Health officials also said the majority of vape cartridges involved came from black market sources. “Many are suspected to be counterfeits of recreational cannabis-containing vape products available in other states,” the statement said.  Public health officials are frantically trying to find the causes and sources of the rash of severe lung injuries.

Welcome to another in the series by Nick Locke, of Nicab Ltd, who has more than

Welcome to another in the series by Nick Locke, of Nicab Ltd, who has more than 15 years experience in the electronics manufacturing industry specialising in interconnection cable assembly. This post is about the main fibre optic termination types. In today’s high-speed networks fibre optics is increasingly becoming a major player in new and upgraded networking infrastructures. In addition to this we are also seeing the adoption of fibre into electronics. In a previous blog post I discussed how expanded beam fibre is becoming very popular in high-end, harsh environment devices. This week I am going to cover the main termination types, from traditional ones to the latest technologies. As the name suggests, the cold cure method uses a combination of chemical Anaerobic Adhesives. This method is the oldest and still very common. The termination process is slow, however, and takes the installer some time to learn. Some people find this method extremely hard to do, meaning only highly-skilled installers can use this method of termination. The same as above. However, the process is slightly simplified by using connectors pre-loaded with Hotmelt Adhesive.  There is still the skilled pol...

People and cultures, like the arts, traditions and cuisine born of those cultures, come in all

People and cultures, like the arts, traditions and cuisine born of those cultures, come in all flavors, and so do cars. The great thing about global trade is that we have choice in nearly everything we buy. Few, if any, people are forced to purchase a product because no alternatives built by rival companies exist. And, because we’re not living under the thumb of an oppressive apparatus that demands us proles buy dismal crapboxes from a sole state-owned factory, our driveway diversity is off the charts. Maybe yours tops them all. Sure, there’s some notable absences. All Chinese-brand cars, for instance. Brands like Seat and Skoda and Holden and Opel and Daihatsu and the PSA Group lineup (for now), Hindustan, and vehicles built at AvtoVAZ factories in Russia. There’s plenty of vehicular nationalities we can’t get our hands on. Old rarities sometimes float across the oceans, and a person’s advanced age (or globe-trotting career) can mean a now-unattainable brand once passed into their ownership, either here or abroad. Sadly, your author can’t claim a diverse ownership history of various auto nationalities. Nope, just two countries: America and Japan. No Germans, no Italians, no Sw...

It can be used for a number of electronic devices to play music and other audio files. Check out our aux cable reviews to find the best 3.5mm cable to suit your needs. A 3.5mm aux cable is a standard for stereo input and output. It can be used with a compatible jack or auxiliary input to link an audio source to your vehicle’s stereo system. This cable can be used with cell phones, portable MP3 players, portable navigation devices, remote mount DVD players, or other electronic devices. An optical cable sends a raw digital signal, while a standard 3.5mm cable sends a converted analog signal. An optical cable is higher quality. A 3.5mm cable cannot be used in a fiber optic input/output, and a fiber optic cable cannot be used in a 3.5mm input/output. They each require different cables and connectors. Optical cables provide less interference but are more expensive and less common than 3.5mm cables. Monster Cable Products...

A grease gun is a great tool for lubricating fittings, bearings, and other components, making it easy to keep everything in perfect working order. Read on to find out everything you need to know about finding the best grease gun for your needs. As the name suggests, hand lever grease guns are manually powered. They’re able to build a decent amount of pressure (up to 10,000 PSI in some cases) and are best suited for grease fittings and parts were precision is not critical. Grease guns that use air pressure can build up to 6,000 PSI and can be calibrated for precision. You can adjust the amount of grease dispersed per stroke on some models, while others will deliver a set amount. Pneumatic grease guns are best suited for more precise tasks where a super-high PSI isn’t needed. Cordless grease guns are battery-powered, delivering convenience and power in a lightweight package. Typically, battery-powered grease guns can deliver the highest pressure of all and have variable flow rates to e...

Some Walker residents flood for a second time after 2016

WALKER, La. (WAFB) – In Walker Friday, some residents are drying out their homes after flooding yet again, while others are still waiting for floodwaters to go down. Girlinghouse lives at the corner of Magnolia Street and Coyell Drive, which backs into the west part of Colyell Creek, which is why all the water has yet to recede. “I thought last night when I went to bed, well this will all be gone because usually it’ll hang out and then it’s like someone pulled the plug and it all goes. I woke up this morning and that wasn’t the case,” Girlinghouse said. The water is draining from the neighborhood slowly. As of Friday afternoon, it had drained less than a foot, and that’s more than 24 hours after the heavy rain moved through. ″Where I live is the bottom end of Walker, so every time it rains, I feel the pain,” said Girlinghouse. It’s a pain he knows all too well, having lived in Walker for 49 years. In 2016, his home took on about 7 feet of water. Thursday’s rain brought back those memories. The couple moved back into their home in 2017 and is still finishing fixing things from the ’16 flood. Then Thursday happened. ″We’re trying to dry it out,” she said. ″We ha...

Which Allergens Are in Your Food? You Can’t Always Tell From the Labels

Despite federal legislation passed 15 years ago, food labels don’t always alert consumers to allergens that may be present in packaged goods. When you’re shopping for someone who has a food allergy, a trip to the grocery store is like a police investigation. Each product must be scrutinized. Labels are examined, each ingredient studied. My 5-year-old son, Alexander, is allergic to almonds and hazelnuts, so my wife and I spend a lot of time trying to decipher food labels. If you miss something, even one word, you risk an allergic reaction. Although federal law requires manufacturers to include allergen warnings on prepackaged foods, it’s not always clear which products contain allergens and which do not. The regulation doesn’t cover all types of foods, nor instances in which trace amounts of allergens may be present. This has created a confusing and risky marketplace for my family and millions of others — roughly 8 percent of children have a food allergy. I set out to better understand allergen labeling and the problems consumers face. Here’s what I learned. Congress passed the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act in 2004, a rule book for manufacturers. Companies mu...
