Outrageous! Buy a New Home - Don’t Sue and Shut Up

Beware of New Builder Clause – Homebuilder requires that homebuyer sign clauses forcing buyers to give up their constitutional rights.  It’s a decision between constitutional rights and the American Dream.

Good Morning,

This week's photo is of Saccharomyces cerevisiae - or yeast, an Ascomycota. The photo is from the University of Vienna's website. Not all mold is bad -- this one brings you bread and beer!

County Enters New Contract with Architect Facing County Lawsuit - Santopetro hired for Levi renovation; firm accused of faulty jail construction (Brownsville Herald, TX United States - Jul 30, 2005)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
July 31, 2005 — Cameron County Commissioners Court last year accused the Houston-based Di Stefano/Santopetro architectural firm of negligence and misrepresentation for its work on the Carrizalez- Rucker Detention Center and Sheriff’s Department — but later contracted a architect in the firm to renovate the Levi-Strauss building in San Benito, The Herald found.

The county sued the firm along with 32 other firms in February 2004 in state District Court, alleging that their work on the law enforcement complex near Olmito was faulty and led to substantial economic losses.

BOH Sympathetic But Can't Condemn Nancy Davis' Mold House (Pepperell Free Press, MA - Aug 3, 2005)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
PEPPERELL -- Nancy and Richard Davis, financially down but not quite out in the wake of being forced to lose their mold-infested home at 20A and B Shawnee Road, asked the Board of Health (BOH) for its help in seeing the house condemned, so others might not suffer their fate.

Board members assured the Davises they would try to inform potential buyers of the house's history and promised to speak to the building inspector on their behalf.

Alisal in talks over bad tiling - The district seeks to settle a lawsuit over faulty tile installation as it addresses mold issues in its schools' multipurpose rooms (Monterey County Herald, CA - Jul 25, 2005)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
An East Salinas elementary school district is looking to settle a recent lawsuit with a Salinas-based contractor over shoddy tile setting at one of its schools.

Lawyers with the Alisal Union School District are negotiating with Christensen Architects, a subcontractor of Tombleson Inc. Both companies were named by the school district in a January lawsuit for faulty and "negligent" installation of tiles at Martin Luther King Academy on Sanborn Road.

Black Mold Closes Luther Town Hall (Channel Oklahoma.com, OK - Jul 29, 2005)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
LUTHER, Okla. -- Toxic black mold has forced one city's leaders from their own town hall. Luther city officials closed its town hall doors Tuesday morning when they suspected a black mold problem was serious. Test results received afterward confirmed officials' concerns.

The problem is so bad that the Luther Police Department decided to operate from the police chief's garage. Officials said city business is being handled from an employee's home. Recent test results showed that the mold contamination had pervaded the building, not merely an inconvenience for workers but also a health hazard.

Mold Education: Ascomycota - Tree of Life (Sac Fungi - includes Penicillium spp., Aspergillus spp., Candida spp.)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Introduction. The Ascomycota, or sac fungi, is monophyletic and accounts for approximately 75% of all described fungi. It includes most of the fungi that combine with algae to form lichens, and the majority of fungi that lack morphological evidence of sexual reproduction. Among the Ascomycota are some famous fungi: Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the yeast of commerce and foundation of the baking and brewing industries (not to mention molecular developmental biology), Penicillium chrysogenum, producer of penicillin, Morchella esculentum, the edible morel, and Neurospora crassa, the "one-gene-one-enzyme" organism. There are also some infamous Ascomycota, a few of the worst being: Aspergillus flavus, producer of aflatoxin, the fungal contaminant of nuts and stored grain that is both a toxin and the most potent known natural carcinogen, Candida albicans, cause of thrush, diaper rash and vaginitis, and Cryphonectria parasitica, responsible for the demise of 4 billion chestnut trees in the eastern USA (Alexopoulos et al., 1996). Asexual Ascomycota, such as Penicillium or Candida species, used to be classified separately in the Deuteromycota because sexual characters were necessary for Ascomycota classification. However, the comparison of nucleic acid sequence, as well as nonsexual phenotypic characters, have permitted the integration of asexual fungi into the Ascomycota (Taylor, 1995).

Characteristics. The shared derived character that defines the Ascomycota is the ascus. It is within the ascus that nuclear fusion and meiosis take place. In the ascus, one round of mitosis typically follows meiosis to leave eight nuclei, and eventually eight ascospores. Ascospores are formed within the ascus by an enveloping membrane system, which packages each nucleus with its adjacent cytoplasm and provides the site for ascospore wall formation. These membranes apparently are derived from the ascus plasma membrane in the Euascomycetes and the nuclear membrane in the Hemiascomycetes (Wu and Kimbrough, 1992; Raju, 1992).

School Mold: Illnesses force switch to tutor (Boston Globe, United States - Jul 29, 2005)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Joey Peterson's big moment is fast approaching: his first day as a freshman at Burlington High School. High school means rubbing shoulders with the upperclassmen, school dances, maybe a shot at a varsity sport. His parents, Diane and Mark Peterson, are psyched, too. But they're also more than a little worried.

Joey's three years at Marshall Simonds Middle School have been plagued by absences due to recurring headaches, stomach pain, dizziness, and burning eyes. His parents, who suspect that high carbon dioxide levels in the school are a sign that poor air quality there has caused their son's illness, fear the same problems may exist at the high school.

Court Mold: Delayed Justice Center undergoes mold removal (Las Vegas Business Press, NV - Jul 25, 2005)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Downtown's Regional Justice Center is taking so long to complete that it now needs $250,000 worth of mold removal. Clark County recently hired Walker Specialty Construction of Snohomish, Wash., to clean several mold contaminated areas inside the overdue, unfinished building. The project calls for water repairs and mold remediation on 11 of the building's 18 levels. It's a two-month task that entails removing and replacing ceiling tiles, drywall, fire sprinklers, windows and carpet, among other things. Certain types of mold, if left untreated, can cause serious health problems.

"Mold exposure can cause an infection with some people, although the most common response is an allergic reaction resulting in eye irritation, shortness of breath, sinus congestion and headaches," said Michael Levine, a national mold expert. "But people react to mold in very different ways, which is why it's a heath and liability issue."

Mold & Insurance: What if you need to file an insurance claim? (Consumer Reports - Jul 29, 2005)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Use it and lose it--that's the message coming from property/casualty insurers these days. Filing even a small auto or homeowners claim can besmirch your risk profile, lead to a policy nonrenewal, and/or raise your premiums to sky-high levels.

After filing three claims over three years, Jessica Bram's insurance company refused to renew her policy. Even an $85 charge for a visit to her doctor for pain after another car rammed her at a stoplight counted against her as a personal-injury claim. Bram, a Westport, Conn., public-relations consultant, found a new insurer but is now paying an annual premium that is 64 percent higher than what her old carrier charged.

Mold & Insurance: Dennis' wind whips up $900 million in damage - State looks to tally storm-surge destruction (Tallahassee.com, FL - Jul 27, 2005)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The pandemonium stirred up by Hurricane Dennis spawned $900 million worth of property losses in four states. And that's just insurance claims caused by the hurricane's winds - damage from Dennis' mighty storm surge and flooding on July 10 have yet to be tallied.

Florida, at $640 million in wind-produced damage, was hit the hardest, with about 85,000 claims filed. Alabama was second at $155 million; Georgia was at $85 million; and Mississippi was at $60 million. Last year by comparison, Hurricane Ivan's strike at the Panhandle produced $4.1 billion of insured property damage.
