Wake Forest University engineers are using multiwalled carbon nanotubes to enhance the brightness of field-induced polymer electroluminescent technology, potentially offering a step forward in the search for safe, pleasing, high-efficiency lighting... Although upesi jikos were linked with fewer respiratory symptoms, there was no appreciable reduction in pneumonia among babies in households using the stoves compared with babies from households that cooked with traditional three-stone firepits... The authors conclude there is an urgent need for “further research into cookstove design, improved methodology for measuring PM2.5 exposures, and adequately-powered health impact trials. ” Coliform bacteria in water are a marker for fecal contamination, which can cause gastroenteritis... But not all coliforms are fecal coliforms, so in December 2012 the U.S. EPA revised its Total Coliform Rule for drinking water to establish a maximum contaminant level specifically for Escherichia coli... With this more targeted test for fecal contamination, the public must be notified anytime drinking water is found to exceed this level... The agency estimates that adding alerts will prevent 2,800 pedestrian and cyclist injuries over the life of the 2016 model year fleet... In its latest study on the occurrence of mislabeled fish in stores and restaurants, the nonprofit Oceana found that more than a third of the fish sampled in New York City had been mislabeled... Tilefish, which is not recommended for small children or pregnant or nursing women because of its high mercury content, was sold as both halibut and red snapper at one grocery store, and 94% of samples of “white tuna” from New York sushi restaurants was actually escolar, which can cause explosive diarrhea due to its high content of wax esters... In all, 58% of the restaurants and stores sampled sold mislabeled fish.
