Tesoro fighting $2.39 million fine in fatal refinery accident



Unedited statement by Tesoro:

“The sudden failure of a heat exchanger at Anacortes in 2010 was a tragedy that no Tesoro employee will ever forget. Nothing is more important to us than the well-being of our employees, their families and the communities in which we operate.

We disagree with LI’s characterizations of our operations at Anacortes and believe the conclusions of their investigation are mistaken.

Nonetheless, the comment was met with applause from audience members.

State and federal officials went on to explain that the pitfalls faced by financial institutions for

Do I Need a Permit to Fix My Sidewalk?

It’s my property, right? Wait, does the property end before or after the sidewalk? Or in the middle? And if the sidewalk is on my property, do I still need a permit? After all, I heard you can get sued if your sidewalk is a safety hazard, so shouldn’t I just fix this ASAP?

Not so fast. Like many construction projects, big and small, you may need a permit to fix your sidewalk.

Asian E-Commerce Sites Are Ripping off Popular Black Jewelry Designer Rachel Stewart  

RS: There are many things you can do, but what I’m most concerned about is prevention. I can copyright, watermark, send cease and desist letters all day long, it doesn’t stop it. For every shop you successfully take down there are 5 more still operating. It’s an almost impossible task. Imagine Michael Jordan or Louis Vuitton trying to stop reproductions, they can’t, there’s a demand and millions to be made.
