Kevin Harvick nabs 9th win of season to roll into 2nd round

  Kevin Harvick nabs 9th win of season to roll into 2nd round BRISTOL, Tenn. — Feeding off one of the largest crowds at a sporting event during the pandemic, Kevin Harvick steamrolled his way into the second round of NASCAR's playoffs in a championship that is clearly his to lose. Harvick held off a charging Kyle Busch over the final 40 laps Saturday night at Bristol Motor Speedway for his career-best and Cup Series-high ninth victory of the season. He did it in front of a sold-out crowd of 30,000 spectators, the most Bristol was allowed to admit and the largest crowd since March. “I hadn’t been to too many races where I’ve been that jacked up getting in the race car,” Harvick said.

A year ago, in Rouen, the Lubrizol chemical plant, classified Seveso, caught fire. On Thursday, September 24, the government announced measures to prevent this type of accident.

On September 26, 2019, nearly 10,000 tonnes of chemicals were set on fire at the Seveso-classified Lubrizol site. Since then, the chemical plant has been secured and activity has partly resumed. But two ministers made the trip, Thursday, September 24, to Rouen , to announce a package of measures to prevent this type of industrial accident.

Priority message

"In July, for large urban areas and in January 2022 throughout France" , the inhabitants located near the place where an industrial accident occurs will receive on their cell phone a priority message recognizable by a specific sound signal (cell broadcast) or an SMS indicating the nature of the accident and what they must do: confine themselves, leave their accommodation, do not pick up their children from school …, announced Gérald Darmanin, Minister of the Interior.

‘The Simpsons’: The New Voice Of Hank Azaria’s Carl Is Revealed

  ‘The Simpsons’: The New Voice Of Hank Azaria’s Carl Is Revealed We now know who will be the new voice of Carl, Homer Simpson’s co-worker at the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant, on The Simpsons. Better Things actor Alex Désert replaces Hank Azaria in the role, at least in Sunday’s Season 32 premiere. It’s not known if Désert is the permanent voice for Carl. The recast follows Fox’s statement in June that white actors would no longer be voicing non-white characters on the hit animated comedy series. Azaria had been the longtime voice of the Black character Carlton Carlson. He also was known for voicing Apu, a character which long has been criticized for portraying a racist depiction of an Indian immigrant.

This is a revolution in alerting populations, continued the minister. France will be the first European country to adopt cell broadcasting after the United States and Japan ”. European regulations will impose it in 2022.

Increase in inspections of Seveso sites

Another measure: inspections of installations classified as Seveso will increase by 50% and their conclusions will be posted online , specified the Minister. 50 additional inspectors will be recruited. And, after a fire, the list and the nature of the products will also be put online.

An accident investigation office (BEA) will also be created "next month. Five experts will seek to understand how the fire occurred ", as is the practice after a plane crash.

To prevent the spread of a fire, all classified installations within a radius of 100 meters around a Seveso site (20 in the Rouen metropolitan area) will be systematically inspected. The simulation of an accident and an evacuation exercise should be organized once a year.

Elected officials claim a safety authority

Elected officials, Nicolas Mayer Rossignol, socialist mayor of Rouen and president of the metropolis, the communist deputy Sébastien Jumel and the associations of victims of Lubrizol or Respire welcome these measures but now await " acts ". One regret, however: they demanded an independent safety authority for Seveso sites, as there is for nuclear. It is not among the measures announced.
