    Story Highlights



    The contaminated hot spot lies under an area the size of eight village blocks.
    Situated over and near the source area, and blocking access to cleanup, are dozens of buildings.
    To date, nearly 70,000 gallons of solvent %u2014 more than 40 tons %u2014 have been pumped from the ground.


    ENDICOTT – After 35 years, IBM Corp. contractors have stanched the flow of industrial solvents into a commercial and residential district in the heart of the village, but they have yet to find a solution for the source of the problem at the company's former flagship manufacturing plant.


    Officials recently reported that efforts to intercept and remove the subterranean flow of hazardous chemicals coming from the industrial complex — now owned by Huron Real Estate Associates — have been successful. Consequently, health risks to a nearby neighborhood have been eliminated.


    Yet they have no remedy for a concentrated pool of solvents directly under the manufacturing site, where at least 1,500 people still work. Full story: http://www.pressconnects.com/story/news/local/2015/04/05/ibm-tce-issues/25302109/

    Same Sex Marriage Celebrating LGBT Marriage for All with KM Davis

    in Current Events

    Join Cultural Conversations with an intimate interview with KM Davis, Founder of Davis Law & Associates.  Davis is a returned special guest to Cultural Conversations and will enlighten and engage on the subject of the Supereme Court ruling making same sex marriage legal in 50 state, the path to marriage equality and her personal journey in the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender (LGBT) community.


    KM Davis is founder of Davis Law & Associates. She discovered her passion for helping business owners far before she realized her own entrepreneurial leanings. However, upon realizing her dual interest (and the need to now “practice what she preached”) Davis’s interest in business law matters has only deepened. The ability to understand the needs of business owners and their families allows Davis to consider aspects of client issues that sometimes even they haven’t realized, and creates a relationship beyond attorney/client…for most clients Davis serves a more comprehensive business advisor role.

    Curtis Harwell Discusses What Happens To Your Brain and Body When You Eat

    in Fitness

    Most of us know that junk food is unhealthy. We know that poor nutrition is related to heart problems, high blood pressure, and a host of other health ailments. You might even know that studies show that eating junk food has been linked to increases in depression.


    But if it’s so bad for us, why do we keep doing it?


    There is an answer. And the science behind it will surprise you.


    Why We Crave Junk Food


    Steven Witherly is a food scientist who has spent the last 20 years studying what makes certain foods more addictive (and tasty) than others. Much of the science that follows is from his excellent report, Why Humans Like Junk Food.


    According to Witherly, when you eat tasty food, there are two factors that make the experience pleasurable.


    First, there is the sensation of eating the food. This includes what it tastes like (salty, sweet, umami, etc.), what it smells like, and how it feels in your mouth. This last quality — known as “orosensation” — can be particularly important. Food companies will spend millions of dollars to discover the most satisfying level of crunch in a potato chip. Their scientists will test for the perfect amount of fizzle in a soda. These factors all combine to create the sensation that your brain associates with a particular food or drink.


    The second factor is the actual macronutrient makeup of the food — the blend of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates that it contains. In the case of junk food, food manufacturers are looking for a perfect combination of salt, sugar, and fat that excites your brain and gets you coming back for more.
