US: Toxics from manufacturing turn up in public water systems
13 August 2018 - Lauren Woeher wonders if her 16-month-old daughter has been harmed by tap water contaminated with toxic industrial compounds used in products like nonstick cookware, carpets, and fast-food wrappers.

The first competitor to break in was 11-year-old Audrey Jones. It took her 10 minutes. (more)

Straw prices soar, piling pressure on northern Europe farmers
11 August 2018 - Livestock and dairy farmers across northern Europe are paying soaring prices for straw used in food and bedding for cattle, as hot, dry weather across the region reduces crops.
