Compost Controversy: Small business claims taxpayer supported agency is undercutting business

A private businessman in the business of producing commercial compost and mulch claims a taxpayer supported agency is undercutting his business by giving away the same product.
After the July 8 storm ripped through the Village of East Syracuse, Ian Hunter of Last Chance Recycling hauled 300 truckloads of tree limbs and brush to his facility in Manlius. He says he would use his $2 million machine to grind up most of the material into compost or mulch which he would sell to homeowners and contractors for gardens and landscaping.

JASON Learning, ISRI Announce Automobile Recycling Awareness Contest

ASON Learning and the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) are inviting young filmmakers, artists, automobile enthusiasts, and recycling advocates to participate in a contest that asks young people to build awareness around the different commodities that can be recycled from cars at the end of their lifespan.
The automobile plays an important role in our everyday lives. Many different commodities are needed to make all the parts that go into a car, and almost all of them are recyclable. In the Automobile Recycling Awareness Contest, students in grades 5–12 are challenged to research one or more of the commodities that go into making a car and find out what happens to each commodity through the automobile recycling process and beyond.

Newest Cat® Vocational Truck Model Enters Full Production

Introduced at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014, the CT681 is a Class 8 set-forward-axle model with a spacious and ergonomic cab, industrial styling, and a vocational-specific engine and transmission. Like the Cat CT660, the first model in the Cat vocational truck line, it’s backed by bumper-to-bumper service at more than 400 Cat dealer locations with over 2,300 service bays in North America.
Extensive testing of the CT681 with North American customers was done as part of Caterpillar’s field follow program—the equivalent of more than three years of heavy truck use. Applications included snow plow, concrete mixer, dump and super dump.
“This process provides a crucial feedback loop between our customers and our vocational truck product team, identifying any required changes to design and production,” said Dave Schmitz, Global On-Highway Truck Product Manager.

Anderson Cooper Had No Idea His ‘Ridiculist’ Was About Him

Anderson Cooper thought he was doing a segment on annoying co-worker “crimes” Monday night, but as it turned out, his co-workers had a little something else in store for the CNN host.
It seems that some of Cooper’s colleagues have taken issue with a particular foul-smelling candle that he burns in his office. So they decided that rather than tell him of their dislike for the candle in person, they would let him read it off his teleprompter, live, on national television.
It didn’t take long for Cooper to realize that the annoying co-worker he was describing was himself.
