Dental health: Saving Matthew’s smile
Looking at Matthew’s full set of teeth, it would be difficult to guess that two years ago, he was in danger of losing them all. Matthew, now 15, has a complicated medical history. It runs the gamut, including pervasive developmental disorder (part of autism spectrum disorder), acid reflux and intermittent vomiting. Additionally, Matthew has sensory issues that make him averse to the feeling of a toothbrush. All of this combined to make brushing Matthew’s teeth a daily battle for his parents Janet and Michael Carco, and sometimes the battle was impossible to win. Because of Matthew’s intermittent vomiting, at ag...

Natural Gas Blowout Doubled Methane Emissions in Los Angeles Area
More than 100,000 tons of methane entered the atmosphere following a 2015 natural gas well blowout in Southern California, enough to double methane emissions in the Los Angeles region during the time of the leak, according to a new research. The study, published in the journal Science, suggests that the leak adjacent to the community of Porter Ranch contributed enough methane to fill a football stadium—every single day for more than three months. The total volume of methane leaked makes it larger than all but one other gas leak in U.S. history, a 2004 accident that occurred at Moss Bluff, Texas. The researchers behin...
