The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act, more commonly known as Superfund, was signed into law on December 11, 1980. It is designed to clean up the most polluted, complex, uncontrolled or abandoned sites contaminated by hazardous waste.

Celebrating it’s 30 years in operation the “Superfund” has completed construction of clean up remedies on 67.5% of sites on the National Priorities List.

As Julfikar Ali Manik, Steven Greenhouse and Jim Yardley note, "The PVH Corporation, the parent company of Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger, and Tchibo, a German retailer, have endorsed a plan in which Western retailers would finance fire safety efforts and structural upgrades in Bangladeshi factories — although they first want other companies to sign on." Let's hope something good can come of the horrendous loss of life.

Probability Distribution Research Simulation Team A Res/341 February 14, 2012 Melanie Schulte Memorandum To: Aquine Stakeholders From: Team A Date: February 14, 2012 Re: Probability Distribution in Research simulation Aquine has made the decision to purchase additional machinery in an effort to reverse the sudden drop in sales which Aquine believes are due to the strict certification guidelines of the SOCC. Aquine will purchase a new temperature testing unit and upgrade the current timing and poising machine. The new temperature testing unit will simulate the different temperatures under which the watch can be worn and the current poising and timing machines will be upgraded to newer more efficient models. The purchase of the new machinery will provide more rigorous testing of the watches prior to SOCC certification and will focus on the main causes of rejection by the SOCC, minimizing the average 60% of failures. The reasons for the decision to purchases then new machinery is because Aquine believes that investing in quality machinery will ultimately reduce the number of defective products being returned as inadequate by the SOCC resulting in a better quality watch with a higher potential for return.
When Mattel, in July 2007, learned of the problems of lead paint in their product and magnets that could be swallowed by children causing serious health issues, they acted quickly by issuing voluntary recalls one after another starting on August 1, 2007.

The interesting part is that the money is to be used to educate the public about the dangers of lead paint and lead poisoning. In more recent years Mattel is still
