If China and Russia won’t allow animal meat treated with beta-adrenergic agonist to be sold in their countries, why is it in our food?

For the past two years I have walked past the Gallatin building on my way to 721 Broadway (where I recently graduated from ITP!).
A long-time New Yorker, I have a fondness for the historic architecture of downtown – especially those which comprise the New York University campus.
Yesterday I had a bit of a shock when I saw steel L brackets bolted to otherwise pristine faces of granite blocks framing the windows on the Gallatin building’s south-facing 1 Washington Place side.
I understand that scaffolding must be put in place for various types of construction and why. I simply have never seen an invasive attachment like the one on Gallatin.
Even if there isn’t secondary fracturing and the bolt holes are plugged with epoxy, those otherwise pristine faces will never be the same and their deterioration will now accelerate requiring maintenance where none would have been needed.
The cavalier treatment of this historic building is a crime against culture, history, and property. These are the actions of someone who has decided that the preservation of historic architecture has little to no value: unless they — or an affiliate — will be hired to continually repair the damage which they have begun.
|Generating radiation to test sensing circuits to use in my wearable ionizing radiation detector is not without some issues. The two ways that I know to solve problems are to either throw as much money at it until arriving at a solution or figure out other ways to solve the problem that don’t cost a lot of money. Option one has never been much of an option.|

This story suggests otherwise.
