Submission + - EPA investigating alleged Google chemical release (cnet.com)

suraj.sun writes: Greener-than-thou Google, which takes environmentalism seriously, is under investigation by the Environmental Protection Agency for an alleged coolant problem at one of its data centers, the company disclosed Wednesday.

"In February 2009, we learned of a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency investigation into an alleged release of refrigerant at one of our smaller data facilities, which we acquired from DoubleClick, and the accuracy of related statements and records," Google said in a quarterly report( http://sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1288776/000119312509101727/d10q.htm ) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

"We are cooperating with the EPA and have provided documents and other materials. The EPA investigation could result in fines, civil or criminal penalties, or other administrative action," Google said.

Submission + - MIT tries to put the prank back in 'hacking'

netbuzz writes: "As the 25th anniversary of what was perhaps the most famous of all MIT pranks nears, the university's chancellor has seen fit to remind students that it's not a prank if someone loses a limb or the SWAT team shows up. And it should go without saying in this post-9/11 world that a re-enactment of 1982's "ballooning" of the Harvard-Yale game would not be recommended.
