    There’s a lot for concern there, but depending on who you ask, the uncertainty of a disinfected hotel room can easily top the list. No matter how much a housekeeper dusts, vacuums and scrubs, there will always be pesky microbes and allergens left in a room’s air. 


    Enter the ever-innovative Danes, and their new Hotel Ottilia, in recently revamped Carlsberg City. Each of the boutique’s 155 rooms utilizes a technology called “CleanCoat,” which breaks down bacteria, makes housekeepers’ lives easier and helps you sleep better. 

    It’s an invisible, odorless, antibacterial spray with an active ingredient of titanium dioxide (normally found in sunscreen and food additives) that removes contaminants from a room.

    The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Cincinnati, names the Bengals, Hamilton County and Aramark Business Facilities, the company that provides janitorial services at the stadium.

    Scott Poston, of Fort Thomas, attended the Oct. 14, 2018 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers with his son. He says he's been a season ticket holder for more than 20 years.


    Poston said he slipped when he was walking into the bathroom in Section 149.

    According to the lawsuit, here’s what caused him to fall:

    Someone vomited inside a stall, and stadium personnel tried to clean it up using a substance, called “D-Vour.”

    With the recent polar vortex and all the cold weather still hanging around much of the nation, spring cleaning might be the last thing on your mind. And that's fine, for now.


    But before you know it, the sun will be shining bright, birds will be chirping relentlessly and flowers will be budding. You'll definitely want to open the windows, get some fresh air and scrub away all the grimy remnants from the long cold winter.

    As part of his scheme, and to ensure that his fraudulent invoices were accepted, Bleicher paid a contractor working in the facilities department of Company 1 who was responsible for the janitorial supplies.

    Once that contractor left, Bleicher continued his fraudulent activity with the contractor’s replacement and rewarded him by buying him expensive dinners, taking him to professional sports games like the Philadelphia 76ers, and providing him with expensive wines.


    Later, Bleicher recruited an employee of Company 1 and gave her the fraudulent invoices to submit for payment.

    Bleicher admitted that he used the money he got from the scheme – $1,917,381,00 – on numerous personal expenditures, such as Rolex watches, two Rolls Royce automobiles, two Subaru automobiles, motorcycles, home renovations and college tuition for his children.

    WARNING! - This is a biohazard cleaning situation. Any member, employee, or cleaning service that is cleaning any facility that processes or handles any deer, elk, or moose meat or anything that is related to wild game processing OSHA Bloodborne Pathogen Safety Standards should be followed. 

    CNN - Chronic wasting disease has been detected in wild deer, elk or moose in 24 States, with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warning hunters to avoid handling or eating potentially infected meat.

    The disease affects the central nervous system and animals can show signs of drastic weight loss, lack of coordination and listlessness. It can make them more aggressive and less afraid of human contact, the center says.


    It's in the same family of disease as Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, which the CDC describes as "a rapidly progressive, invariably fatal neurodegenerative disorder."

    In Tennessee, cases of CWD as of Jan. 2019 include: 

    1. Fayette County
    2. Hardeman County

    In Virginia, the cases include: 

    1. Frederick
    2. Shenandoah

    The center says scientists believe the contagious disease is passed between animals through bodily fluids.
