          Oil Refinery Merger in California Underscores Risks of Petro-Economy Nationwide 
    
          October 24, 2016
    
          In a region known for being among the worst nationally for its air quality, plans are marching briskly forward on a proposed integration project that will combine operations at two sprawling oil refineries near Southern California's Long Beach area, expanding it into the single largest oil refinery by far on the nation's West Coast.

          Public Sector Pensions Under Attack -- From the LA Times
    
          October 24, 2016
    
          Call it the tale of two pension crises. In June, the Los Angeles Times’ business pages looked at the looming retirement savings disaster caused by the nearly 40-year transition from traditional employer-sponsored defined-benefit pensions to individual 401(k) plans — a sea change in retirement insecurity, it noted, that “has been a failure for all but the wealthiest Americans.”

          How Much More Environmental Injustice Must Uniontown, Alabama, Bear?
    
          October 24, 2016
    
          It is with deep concern that I write to address the ongoing travesty inflicted on the residents of one small, impoverished community: Uniontown, Perry County, in Alabama's Black Belt. My family has lived in Uniontown for many generations and, as a longtime resident, I have observed with sadness the harmful effects, distress, and heartache Uniontown citizens have experienced since the establishment of Arrowhead Landfill.

          Women in Iceland to Leave Work at 2:38 PM
    
          October 24, 2016
    
          Women in Iceland strike over the gender pay gap. The first Women's Day Off was held on October 24, 1975. While the gap is closing, it would take another 50 years at the current pace in order to achieve parity.

          Food Preferences Learned in Social Contexts
    
          October 24, 2016
    
          A main finding from this research is that babies learning about food is fundamentally social. When they see someone eat a food, they can use the person’s reaction to the food to learn about the food itself, such as whether it is edible, and also to learn about the people who are eating the food.
