In this fiery and funny talk, New York Times food writer Mark Bittman weighs in on what's wrong with the way we eat now (too much meat, too few plants; too much fast food, too little home cooking), and why it's putting the entire planet at risk.

Mark Donnelly presents an interesting discussion of risk. Risk, he purports, in terms of protection of people at the coalface (at the practical level or working), should be determined not by the likelihood of happening, nor from occurrence of doing, but only from the consequence of harm and by what controls that risk.

Mining.com recounts some of the interesting projects of world proportions. For example, there is a lot more to mining than the things that occasionally go wrong. Though the media focus on the disasters, every day in the industry incredible things are done that never get any press time. The ways humans have found to get the things we need out of the ground are simply staggering. Let us take a look at some of the more mind boggling things humans have done over the years in our quest for resources.

Dr. Conca reports that Americans apparently want to drink clean water even more than they want to breath clean air. A new public survey and study was conducted in May by Nestle Waters North America on 4,756 American adults across the lower 48 states.

The Perspectives on American Water Study, released yesterday at the annual Aspen Ideas Festival on innovative solutions in Colorado, asked the respondents to share their views on water-related topics. The overall take-away from the survey is that ...

David Harro, P.G., reports that sinkholes in Florida are a major concern to engineering and environmental studies. The use of geophysics for the identification of sinkholes in Florida have focused on two types of geophysics, Ground Penetrating Radar and Multi Electrode Electrical Resistivity. Applications of GPR and MER have been successful for areas where the cover material over the limestone is less than 30 feet. However, in much of the state this material can reach to depth. Sites with limited distances can limit MER significantly leaving only GPR. In most cases GPR and MER do not reach the... More →

Arend Hintze opines that as an artificial intelligence researcher, he often comes across the idea that many people are afraid of what AI might bring. It is perhaps unsurprising, given both history and the entertainment industry, that we might be afraid of a cybernetic takeover that forces us to live locked away, Matrix-like, as some sort of human battery.

And yet it is difficult for him to look up from the evolutionary computer models he uses to develop AI, to think about how the innocent virtual creatures on his screen might become the monsters of the future. Might he become the de... More →

Michael Riley, et al., reports hackers working for a foreign government recently breached at least a dozen U.S. power plants, including the Wolf Creek nuclear facility in Kansas, according to current and former U.S. officials, sparking concerns the attackers were searching for vulnerabilities in the electrical grid.

The intruders could be positioning themselves to eventually disrupt the national power supply, warned the officials, who noted that a general alert was distributed to utilities a week ago. Adding to those concerns, hackers recently infiltrated an unidentified company tha... More →

The Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS) is a program within the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that is responsible for developing toxicologic assessments of environmental contaminants. An IRIS assessment contains hazard identifications and dose-response assessments of various chemicals related to cancer and noncancer outcomes. Although the program was created to increase consistency among toxicologic assessments within the agency, federal, state, and international agencies and other organizations have come to rely on IRIS assessments for setting regulatory standards, establishi...

Dr. Conca reports that, aside from exposure to the Sun causing skin cancers and to radon causing lung cancer to underground uranium miners who smoke, it is very rare for anyone to be hurt by any dose of radiation. Contrary to the hype and fear pandering by the media on Fukushima, and even Chernobyl, the observable radiation health effects from both accidents were small. In the case of Fukushima, it was as close to zero as one can get. In the case of Chernobyl, although significant, it was still very small.

The reason you might not know this, is that almost everyone uses the wrong m... More →

The Conference will be held at the Townsville (Queensland, Australia) Entertainment and Convention Centre from Sunday Afternoon, the 18th, to noon on Wednesday, the 21st of August.

The Conference is not about how to mine or where we mine, it is all about the improvement of health and safety in the mining industry. With a record number of over 820 people in attendance in 2012, this Conference is one of the largest health and safety conferences in the southern hemisphere. Last year a record 65 organisations took the opportunity to display their products and services and it is anticipa... More →

The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) and many state agencies continue to apply greater efforts to improve pipeline safety and strengthen the national pipeline infrastructure in light of recent well-publicized pipeline failures.

PHMSA is developing more stringent pipeline safety regulations, enforcing its regulations with greater vigor, and imposing ever-increasing penalties. In 2011, Congress amended The Pipeline Safety Act to allow PHMSA to double the fines from $100,000 to $200,000 for a single violation, and from $1 million to $2 million for a relate... More →

Nevada is at risk of numerous geohazards which are detailed below. NBMG scientists continue to research these hazards to help us learn how to protect ourselves from danger.

The Great Basin Science Sample and Records Library (GBSSRL) houses information on many of these geohazards. All materials in the following collections are open for free public viewing during GBSSRL office hours, and the staff will help locate and pull files for a fee. Many related publications are also available through our Publications Sales Office and for free on our website.

We live in an era with unparalleled opportunities to practice disease prevention based on knowledge of the earth environment. Although globally distributed early warning systems can monitor physical hazards such as earthquakes and tsunamis, chemical hazards on the other hand whether actual or potential and natural or anthropogenically induced remain difficult to accurately identify in time and space. Such hazards often have lengthy asymptomatic latency periods before disability or disease becomes evident. The scientific information available from the earth sciences knowledge about earth materi...
