Black lung threatens increasing number of coal miners

Although Connecticut has little or no history of coal mining, black lung is a frightening disease for anyone who has worked in a coal mine. This devastating occupational disease had appeared to be dying out by the end of the 20th century. At that time, there were only 31 cases of the most severe form of the disease reported to researchers and new cases of black lung had reached a historical low number. However, as the 21st century progresses, it is clear that far from being eliminated, black lung is perhaps a greater threat to workers' health than ever before.

A great deal of writing and reporting on automobiles today is focusing on the potentials of the future development of fully autonomous vehicles.
