Submission + - EPA: Broken CFL Bulb? Better read this. ( 1

Alaska Jack writes: Break a CFL light bulb? Not to worry: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has released instructions for cleaning up the mess. Might want to grab a sandwich and settle in — the instructions are three pages long. 'This cleanup guidance,' the EPA helpfully notes, 'represents the minimum actions recommended.'

Submission + - New leads in 1982 Tylenol poisoning cases

Alaska Jack writes: Authorities today raided the home of a man previously considered a suspect in the 1982 deaths of seven people via cyanide-tainted Tylenol. He was convicted in 1983 for writing blackmail letters to Johnson & Johnson, the makers of Tylenol, and served more than 12 years for extortion; however, he has always denied doing the actual poisoning. The FBI isn't commenting on any specific new evidence, except to say the search was prompted by a review of existing evidence, and that they had received numerous new tips about the case on the occasion of its 25th anniversary. I had always wondered about this case. I didn't realize they ever had any suspects.
