SOURCE OSHA-
What are the hazards in grain handling facilities? The grain handling industry is a high hazard industry where workers can be exposed to numerous serious and life threatening hazards. These hazards include: fires and explosions from grain dust accumulation, suffocation from engulfment and entrapment in grain bins, falls from heights and crushing injuries and amputations from grain handling equipment.
Suffocation is a leading cause of death in grain storage bins. In 2010, 51 workers were engulfed by grain stored in bins, and 26 died—Suffocation can occur when a worker becomes buried (engulfed) by grain as they walk on moving grain or attempt to clear grain built up on the inside of a bin. Moving grain acts like "quicksand" and can bury a worker in seconds. "Bridged" grain and vertical piles of stored grain can also collapse unexpectedly if a worker stands on or near it. The behavior and weight of the grain make it extremely difficult for …

Ghanese Children Going for the Gold-By Force-BREAKING NEWS

Image
BREAKING NEWS- Ghana is starting to expel the illegal Chinese miners. Will keep you updated. Weds Mar 27

Why are children used to dig gold in Ghana?  Because they have no choice.  Of course, it this is the same old thing--child labor. Chinese mining companies are illegally in Ghana exploiting Ghana's mineral resources, ruining the environment, exploiting the laborers and more. Children are working at these mines. Let's stop this.



When a patch of land on the edge of Nweneso No. 1 village was bought by a Ghanaian who said he wanted to search for gold, few residents objected. Then dozens of Chinese moved in with excavators, wrecking farmland and turning the local stream into a trickle of mud.

 The biggest gold companies operating in Ghana are Greenwood Village, Colorado-based Newmont Mining Corp., which is developing its second mine in the country, and Johannesburg’s AngloGold Ashanti Ltd. and Gold Fields Ltd.  “The Chinese destroyed our land and our river, they are sitt…

Sexy Cowboys

Giddy-up!

I love stories and movies that have cowboys in them. Once  a friend of mine and I were having a few cocktails at King's Cross and I fell off my bar stool. My drinking buddy was Dennis Green, a man whose expertise was the art of conversation. Dennis was really an expert in everything,

We were talking about potential lovers for women and who made the best ones.

Dennis told me all women should have a "sensitive cowboy" in their lives. Poetry, classical music, a fireplace and a hunky cowboy--sans horse.

I thought that concept really was spot on. But we were in Oakland and there were no cowboys in sight. I swilled my drink, said bye to Dennis and left, still thinking about his advice.

The next time I saw Dennis at the grocery store in Alameda, he was wearing a black cowboy hat and he looked re…

Sunday Stroll-by a Tortoise

 A Galapagos tortoise utilizing a human road on Santa Cruz Island. 

This photograph reminds me of Vermont--even though there are no tortoises there. Vermont has lots of  old logging roads that are easy to walk on. I can understand why this tortoise took this path. It is smooth and easy to navigate.

I wonder where he is going? All we know is that he is going somewhere. I loved summers in Vermont, days humid, nights breezy. We stayed right next to a small dairy farm and helped milk the cows. I am positive I would love the islands too!

The Galapagos are much prettier than Vermont but the two definitely have things in common.

The photo of the tortoise reminds me of a Vermont poet also.  Robert Frost, wrote in 1920:
