A quickly escalating measles outbreak around Portland, Oregon, has led health officials in nearby Clark County, Washington, to declare a public health emergency as they warn that people infected with the highly contagious virus since the beginning of the year have visited schools and churches, a dentist’s office, an Amazon locker pickup station, a Costco, and an Ikea.

The ship has sailed into another phase of its retirement, becoming a musical hot spot that held seven multi-act shows in 2018, attracting a new generation of fans to the 82-year-old ocean-liner. “I think it’s been more successful than we imagined,” said Paul Billings, vice president and … [Read more...] about How the Queen Mary became a mini music festival hot spot in 2018
The world’s largest air pollution hotspot is not where you might think. No, it’s not in New Jersey. But if you said South Africa you’d be right, according to a newly-released study by the environmental group Greenpeace. With coal and transport as the two principle sources of air pollution, Eastern Mpumalanga province in South Africa has the most polluting cluster of coal-fired power stations in the world, producing record levels of nitrogen dioxide, according to the Greenpeace report. Mpumalanga borders Mozambique and is the hub of South Africa’s coal industry with 12 coal-fired plants that supply the grid with 32 gigawatts. “The most up-to-date satellite imagery from June to August this year clearly shows that when you look at just one pollutant, which is nitrogen dioxide, Mpumalanga is the worst hotspot in the world,” Melita Steele, senior climate and energy campaign manager for Greenpeace Africa, said in a statement. Nitrogen oxides (NOx) – … [Read more...] about South Africa Must Address Air Pollution Hot Spots – Now!
