- Using Waste Vegetable Oil as a Diesel Replacement Fuel - Safety (JourneytoForever.com)
"Wear proper protective gloves, apron, and eye protection and do not inhale any vapors. Methanol can cause blindness and death, and you don't even have to drink it, it's absorbed through the skin. Sodium hydroxide can cause severe burns and death. Together these two chemicals form sodium methoxide. This is an extremely caustic chemical. These are dangerous chemicals -- treat them as such!"
Editor's Note: Awesome Library does not recommend making biodiesel fuel. 10-04

"The independent Stafford-Covey Commission said risk remained that pieces of foam and ice could break off and hit the shuttle at lift-off."
"It also said the orbiter had not been sufficiently hardened and it lacked an in-flight repair system." 6-05

"The [F.A.A.] board recommended today that the F.A.A. develop "visual and tactile training aids" to train pilots to detect ice, and that the Department of Transportation require charter operators to tell the passengers if a flight has been subcontracted to another company." 05-06
- -Editorial: Aviation Safety Improving by New Piloting Roles (ABC News)
"Today, in other words, we don't tolerate airline captains unwilling to listen to their co-pilots or utilize their expertise. And, we also no longer tolerate subordinates who are reluctant or afraid to speak up."
"And that is the major reason it's been an amazing 3 ˝ years since the last major airline accident in the United States." 05-06

- -09-15-07 Toy Safety: What We Can Do (US News)
"At least we have an army of government regulators serving as a safety net, right? Uh, nope. The New York Times and others have pointed out that the Consumer Product Safety Commission, responsible for enforcing safety standards, has been gutted in recent years, even as imports have been surging. The federal government, it turns out, spends more money monitoring the safety of animal feed than testing the safety of products used by children."
" 'Made in China' isn't the problem."
"That's because the image of shoddy Chinese-owned factories hoodwinking naive American corporations is largely a myth. Most big American companies importing products from China own the factories where those products are made or partially own them through a joint venture. So the companies themselves are on-scene at the source of the problem—or should be—and they represent the first line of responsibility for dangerous components." 09-07

- Medical Helicopters Have Bad Safety Record (CBS News)
"The last l5 months have been the deadliest yet: 18 helicopter ambulances have crashed since October 2007, including 11 fatal accidents that left 36 people dead. 'The current accident record is unacceptable, and it has to improve,' says Robert Sumwalt, vice chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board, which investigates air crashes."
"The National Transportation Safety Board first investigated the medical helicopter industry's crash epidemic in 1988. It found low visibility, often caused by bad weather, accounted for 61% of all crashes. 'Weather-related accidents are the most common and the most serious type of accident experienced by EMS helicopters,' the 1988 report found, 'and are also the most easily prevented.' " 02-09
- -08-10-10 Smelling Gulf Seafood for Safety (AOL News)
"With many petrochemicals, humans will notice 1 part per million, or even less, of their smelly components in air. That's like a few tablespoons in an Olympic-sized swimming pool (if you pretend those chemicals have the same density as water)."
"That's why the FDA says it's very unlikely for tainted seafood to reach your plate after a battery of smell tests. And our sensitivity to such small traces of oil makes it even harder for higher, toxic levels to go undetected." 08-10
- -04-06-11 Radiation in Seawater Over a Million Times More Than Safety Limit (New York Times)
"The company that runs Japan’s crippled nuclear power plant announced Wednesday that it had stopped the leak of tons of highly radioactive water into the ocean discovered over the weekend. The news came a day after the company said the levels of radioactive material in the seawater near the plant were measured at several million times the legal limit."
"The announced standards for fish came hours after Tokyo Electric said it had found iodine 131 in seawater samples at 200,000 becquerels per cubic centimeter, or five million times the legal limit. The samples were collected Monday near the water intake of the No. 2 reactor of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station."
"The samples also showed levels of cesium 137 to be 1.1 million times the legal limit, according to the Japanese public broadcaster NHK. Cesium remains in the environment for centuries, losing half its strength every 30 years." 04-11

- Safety for Foreigners While Traveling in the Ukrkaine (PoltavaTravel.com)
"Even though Poltava is safe, you still should take some precautions." A couple of examples of precautions listed in the article include:
"Don't go into back streets of the city. Instead, try to stay in the city center, which is quite big and has got lots of things to offer to a traveler, such as bars and restaurants, museums and parks and many sights to see."
"Don't speak your language too loudly. Poltava is not a major travel destination. Therefore, people pay much attention to you when they hear you speaking a different language. Our people are very welcoming to foreign visitors. It is just that you still want to keep a low profile and try not to attract attention of those willing to take an advantage of you in one way or another." 04-12
