Prodded by Young and the concerns she pushed along, which made their way through channels to state officials, TriCounty Health announced a study in 2014 to assess Young’s concerns over the infant mortality rate. But Young, backed up by experts in Salt Lake City, believed the study was designed to fail. She says that any serious inquiry would have started with Suspect One: the extraordinary levels of wintertime pollution plaguing the Basin since the vast new undertaking to frack the region’s shale filled the air with toxins. The county merely counted up infant deaths and brushed aside the facts about Vernal air pollution: ozone readings that rivaled the worst days of summer in New York, Los Angeles or Salt Lake City; particulate matter as bad as Mexico City; and ground air fraught with carcinogenic gases like benzene, rogue emissions from oil and gas drilling. Indeed, pollution was so bad in this rural bowl that it broke new ground in climate science. For decades, experts … [Read more...] about What’s Killing the Babies of Vernal, Utah?

The idea of a whole night of just house music being mixed wasn’t in the scheme of things in London: “Why would you want to do that? That means you can’t play jazz records. It means you can’t play hip-hop records.” … [Read more...] about Shoom: An Oral History of the London Club That Kicked Off Rave Culture
Despite occasional slips into soft-core misogyny (a well-established rock subtext), Hagar’s approach to love is more often along the lines of a standard glories-are-worth-the-heartbreaks sensibility. On 5150‘s first hit single, “Why Can’t This Be Love,” Hagar ponders a basic quandary: he’s finally met the girl who blows his past right out of the water, he’s old enough to know it’s not some puppy-love infatuation, yet he’s bruised enough to mistrust the intensity of the feeling. As Eddie’s pulsing synths and heartthrob guitar riffs circle in orbit, Hagar begs to know why, just this once, can’t it be the real thing, since it feels so goddamn good. … [Read more...] about 5150
