Top Kill Slated For Wednesday
The "top kill" is now scheduled for Wednesday. That's when officials at British Petroleum say they will try to shoot mud and cement at the gushing oil well in the Gulf of Mexico, to try to cap it. But BP chief executive Tony Hayward warned his staff in an email on Friday that it might not work. With oil now coating marsh grasses and sea life, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal is threatening to "take matters into our own hands," and Interior Secretary Ken Salazar says that the government is prepared to push BP out of the way. Jeffrey Ball of the Wall Street Journal is in Lafourche parish in the town of Galiano, Louisiana.
Dr. Sunshine Recommends Sun But Dermatologists Don't
Dr. Michael Holick, a vitamin D researcher at Boston University, recommends getting 15-30 minutes of sun on your arms and legs in the middle of the day two to three times a week because most people do not get enough vitamin D.
