|nikblood||The details stated owner or resident... residents include everyone in my family that lives in my house and was therefore exposed, correct? If so- I will have them fill out a claim form as well. We sold the house last year. Good riddance.|

Old News - Not a Hot Deal
This has been printed on the bottom of receipts for at least a month now.
I purchased a soda looking to get a 10% off coupon for next purchase, but all it had was the info in the OP.

To compete on a global playing field, our country needs to be smarter. The way I see it, there are really only two ways that can we accomplish this. One is improving education to make the people smarter who are already here and the other is to import talent from abroad.
To fix our existing education system, we're talking about retraining or replacing about six million teachers. Such a task will take several decades and many billions of dollars even in the most optimistic circumstances. However, there are tons of bright and eager folks from other countries who are lining up at our door to work here and do the jobs Americans don't want to do. Many of these people have been trained at their home countries' top technical universities, such as IIT [wikipedia.org]. Many people from here don't like math, but many of these people practically breathe integrals. Letting them in is a more economically sound idea than trying to home grow our own nerds. This will allow people already here to focus on the types of jobs they like to do.
Of course, there are many other problems with our education system other than poorly trained teachers and a hatred of math. Let's face it: many American kids just aren't aren't on par with their global counterparts in a lot of areas, and higher education in the U.S is very hit or miss. If you go to an Ivy League school, your diploma really means something. If you go to a fourth tier school as ranked by U.S. News & World Report, well, good luck. We currently have a glut of unemployed scientists and engineers trained at low-ranked American institutions that no company wants to touch.
We might not have won WWII if we hadn't accepted scientific help from certain immigrants. Now, we need to avail ourselves to the intellectual talents of visa holders on an even grander scale.

Goods are cheap, but they SUCK... Read the OP, not many in this country are coming out winners. Gee a WallStreet mogul parading the benefits (there are many for WS) of globalization. This is surprising to you?

i think lowes did not sell any off the bad stuff,its easy to spot have you got sulfer smells and discolored copper pipes and wiring,i would not accept a settlement that low but lowes stuff is ment to be ok,some people got milion dollars each,go to court,
Symptoms include a sulfur smell like rotten eggs. In addition, the gases given off corrode copper and silver very quickly. Look in the house to see where you can find exposed copper, typically wiring that has been stripped of the insulation. This would usually be in a junction box. Any silver jewelry or silverware will tarnish extremely fast, much faster than usual. Look at mirrors in the house and see if the edges of the mirrors are turning black. The failure of electrical devices and appliances in the house is a tip-off, especially the air conditioning system. A/C systems can fail in 6 months in houses with this problem. Look at the plumbing fixtures. If they are corroding or discoloring, there may be a problem. Check anything metal in the house. Copper plumbing should be very easy to examine. Sheetrock may be exposed in the attic where it has not been painted. See if you can see what kind of sheetrock it is. Check the internet to see if it is a brand that is affected. Occupants of the house may develop symptoms including headaches, respiratory problems and allergic type reactions. In houses with this wall board the corrosion looks black, like soot, not green like a copper roof. If you are in a development where you know it was used, you should be very careful. The wall board came into use after hurricanes in New Orleans and Flordia caused a drywall shortage. The construction years are roughly 2002-2006 give or take a couple of years. Most of the affected houses are in Florida although it can be all over the country
