Ari Weisbrot: Look Ma, No Fans!
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
I have been watching the Today Show on NBC for over 30 years. I have bathed in its highs and wallowed in its lows. The show has been unassailable since its virtual inception. Even during the Bryant Gumble - Williard Scott debacle, the nation was hooked. It seems incapable of missteps - - even while Ann Curry, with her empathetic, concerned expression, asked rape victims if there is anything they want to say to their rapist. Oh, your child was just found dead in a ditch? How does that make you FEEL? Yup. The Today Show was invincible. Until, well, today. It seems to have met its kryptonite. In the coming weeks, this blog will explore the causes (and effects) of the slow, but steady death of Today's domination of morning television. Spoiler alert: It's not Matt Lauer. But, to get things started, here is a scientific and statistically solid score card of the professionals that we invite into our homes each day, and rely upon to tell us what we need to be thinking about.

WATCH: Tanning Salons And Underage Teens: Are Places Bending The Rules?
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Thirty-three states currently have age restrictions when it comes to minors using tanning beds. But how hard is it for underage teens to sneak into these establishments? Not very, according to a recent investigation by NBC's Jeff Rossen and Robert Powell. The team sent an young staffer posing as a 15-year-old into six salons in the New Jersey area to see whether management would allow her to tan. Although the state mandates persons between 14 and 17 years old to be accompanied by a parent for written consent, three of the salons granted her access to their facilities. Read the full story on MSNBC's website and watch the report above. Last year, a local sector of the American Cancer Society conducted a similar investigation at 16 tanning salons in the New Jersey area, WGRZ reported at the time. Unlike NBC's experiment, underage teens were turned away from the establishments 75 percent of the time. Researchers in the United Kingdom have also reported somewhat la ...

70,000 Classrooms Expose School Children to a Killer Radioactive Gas
MMD Newswire - almost 5 years
March 01, 2012 (MMD Newswire) -- Our nation's school children may be breathing a radioactive gas every day in their classrooms, a gas that causes lung cancer. These young victims and their parents are unaware of the danger even as the EPA seeks to cut funding for the nation's radon program. The American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists (AARST) and Cancer Survivors Against Radon are protesting to Congressional budget committees about cuts proposed by EPA for the 2013 budget. NBC's TODAY SHOW on February 29 featured an Investigative Report by Jeff Rossen that reveals a startling fact: 25 years after the passage of the Indoor Radon Abatement Act as many as 70,000 classrooms in United States may have high levels of the radioactive gas. The problem is that neither school officials nor EPA know which ones they are because no one has tested them. Additionally, many of our nation's schools are unwilling to test for this form of radioactivity because of funding conce ...
