Story by: Terence Winter and George Mastras. Together with his partners, Richie Finestra, President of American Century Records, is on the verge of selling his struggling company to German Polygram, an impending distribution agreement with Led Zeppelin part of the package.
With German Polygram executives in town to complete the deal for American Century, Richie delivers a bombshell that shocks the prospective buyers as well as his partners: A devastated Zak considers changing his alibi for a recent injury, while Richie decides to pay a visit to an estranged mentor.
Trying to find purpose in the suburbs, Devon turns to Warhol in hopes of raising funds to renovate a Greenwich barn that could house a displaced Russian ballet company. Approaching Lester about releasing some of his old blues demos, Richie reopens old wounds instead. The revamped Nasty Bits fail to win over Richie, prompting Jamie to change up their set list.
In lieu of attending a funeral, Richie takes out his anxieties on a couch during a marriage-counseling session with Devon. Later, over the course of a chaotic day at the office, Richie courts funk superstar Hannibal, agrees to let Robert Goulet record an original song on his upcoming Christmas LP, and gets fired up after an acrimonious meeting with Lester. Meanwhile, Zak and Scott ruminate on their futures in the aftermath of the lost deal with German Polygram. On the verge of signing with American Century, Nasty Bits enlist a new manager to work out a favorable deal with Richie.
Skip looks to unload an overrun of bootleg albums, but finds no takers. Later, Richie visits a downtown jazz club in search of an alibi, while Devon has a meltdown at home. Richie visits his father in order to leverage a favor to his advantage. Clark gets a new job after an emotional meeting with Julie, while an indignant Jamie ends up keeping her old one.
Richie has an inspiration for the name of his new label. Nicole Kassell. Devon seeks refuge at the Chelsea Hotel with Ingrid, a friend from her Warhol days. Zito rejoins American Century and immediately outlines her plans to revive the label. Kip follows an unlikely path towards recruiting a new lead guitarist, Alex, for Nasty Bits. David Matthews. Looking to raise cash for his label, a newly sober Richie flies to LA with Zak, hoping to sell the company jet to a rival record exec, Lou Meshejian.
Rebuffed by a loan officer with high school ties to Zak, a desperate Richie approaches Maury about doing a deal with Galasso. Tasked by Richie to come up with a new song, Nasty Bits get a crash course in the blues from Lester.
Clark finds musical enlightenment from his one-time mailroom nemesis, Jorge. After an unsettling visit with Devon and the kids, Richie weighs his options as the heat surrounding the Frank "Buck" Rogers murder case is turned up. Zito tongue-lashes Jamie and Cece for getting romantically involved with the talent. Lester bails when he sees Gold in the conference room. Clark and Jorge bond over an Indigo tune.
After receiving a phone call from the hotel in Vegas, Zak realizes what actually transpired that night. While Richie begins his deal to bring down Galasso, Zak also strikes a deal with him to bring Richie down. With Indigo climbing in sales thanks to Clark and Jorge, the group decides to push further with them. Richie goes to Lester in order to get the rights to his song; Lester uses that to his advantage. Galasso holds a meeting with Richie and Zak after one of his operations is discovered by the police; Corso is executed.
Kip overdoses. Gary makes suggestions to Zak. Richie resuscitates Kip before the band goes on stage. In Europe and in some other parts of the world, the use of DINP in toys and childcare items has been restricted as a precautionary measure. In Europe, for example, DINP can no longer be used in toys and childcare items that can be put in the mouth even though the EU scientific risk assessment concluded that its use in toys does not pose a risk to human health or the environment. The rigorous EU risk assessments, which include a high degree of conservatism and built-in safety factors, have been carried out under the strict supervision of the European Commission and provide a clear scientific evaluation on which to judge whether or not a particular substance can be safely used.
Lead had previously been frequently added to PVC to improve workability and stability. Lead has been shown to leach into drinking water from PVC pipes.
In Europe EU 28 the use of lead-based stabilizers was gradually replaced. In the early s, the carcinogenicity of vinyl chloride usually called vinyl chloride monomer or VCM was linked to cancers in workers in the polyvinyl chloride industry. Specifically workers in polymerization section of a B.
Goodrich plant near Louisville, Kentucky , were diagnosed with liver angiosarcoma also known as hemangiosarcoma , a rare disease. PVC produces HCl upon combustion almost quantitatively related to its chlorine content. Extensive studies in Europe indicate that the chlorine found in emitted dioxins is not derived from HCl in the flue gases.
Instead, most dioxins arise in the condensed solid phase by the reaction of inorganic chlorides with graphitic structures in char-containing ash particles. Copper acts as a catalyst for these reactions. Studies of household waste burning indicate consistent increases in dioxin generation with increasing PVC concentrations. A survey of international studies consistently identifies high dioxin concentrations in areas affected by open waste burning and a study that looked at the homologue pattern found the sample with the highest dioxin concentration was "typical for the pyrolysis of PVC".
Other EU studies indicate that PVC likely "accounts for the overwhelming majority of chlorine that is available for dioxin formation during landfill fires. The next largest sources of dioxin in the EPA inventory are medical and municipal waste incinerators. For instance a study of commercial-scale incinerators showed no relationship between the PVC content of the waste and dioxin emissions. The report concludes that "no single material shows up as the best across all the human health and environmental impact categories, nor as the worst" but that the "risk of dioxin emissions puts PVC consistently among the worst materials for human health impacts.
In Europe the overwhelming importance of combustion conditions on dioxin formation has been established by numerous researchers. The single most important factor in forming dioxin-like compounds is the temperature of the combustion gases. Oxygen concentration also plays a major role on dioxin formation, but not the chlorine content.
To comply with the EU emission limit of 0. Recent information is showing for example that dioxin levels in populations near incinerators in Lisbon and Madeira have not risen since the plants began operating in and respectively.
Several studies have also shown that removing PVC from waste would not significantly reduce the quantity of dioxins emitted. The influence on the reduction is also expected to be a second or third order relationship. It is most likely that the main incineration parameters, such as the temperature and the oxygen concentration, have a major influence on the dioxin formation". The Green Paper states further that at the current levels of chlorine in municipal waste, there does not seem to be a direct quantitative relationship between chlorine content and dioxin formation.
A study commissioned by the European Commission on "Life Cycle Assessment of PVC and of principal competing materials" states that "Recent studies show that the presence of PVC has no significant effect on the amount of dioxins released through incineration of plastic waste. The European waste hierarchy refers to the five steps included in the article 4 of the Waste Framework Directive: The European Commission has set new rules to promote the recovery of PVC waste for use in a number of construction products.
It says: This avoids PVC being discarded in landfills or incinerated causing release of carbon dioxide and cadmium in the environment". In Europe, developments in PVC waste management have been monitored by Vinyl ,  established in Since June , it is followed by VinylPlus, a new set of targets for sustainable development.
One facilitator for collection and recycling of PVC waste is Recovinyl. One approach to address the problem of waste PVC is also through the process called Vinyloop. It is a mechanical recycling process using a solvent to separate PVC from other materials. This solvent turns in a closed loop process in which the solvent is recycled.
So the use of recycled material leads to a significant better ecological footprint. The global warming potential is 39 percent lower. In November one of the largest hospital networks in the U. Braun Melsungen for vinyl-free intravenous bags and tubing.
In January a major U. In , the U. Plasticized PVC is a common material for medical gloves. PVC is made from petroleum. The production process also uses sodium chloride. It can be recycled roughly seven times and has a lifespan of around years.
Property owners can recycle it through nationwide collection depots. The Olympic Delivery Authority ODA , for example, after initially rejecting PVC as material for different temporary venues of the London Olympics , has reviewed its decision and developed a policy for its use. Temporary parts, like roofing covers of the Olympic Stadium , the Water Polo Arena , and the Royal Artillery Barracks , would be deconstructed and a part recycled in the VinyLoop process.

If you ever need to rage against the machine, N. A has your back. The first album Nas blessed us with, released when he was just 20 years old. Nas is one of the top three lyricists ever to aim words at a microphone and an East Coast rap first-ballot hall of fame member.
Nas drops enough one-liners in his songs that a new one will catch you every listen. Also, " N. State of Mind " will forever be better than "Empire State of Mind". Be forewarned though: These lyrics are not for the faint of heart. In terms of tone and cadence, there are few rappers more fun to listen to. His songs tell swerving narratives and his beats are Rick Rubin approved. Legend has it that the only rapper to rewrite history without a pen recorded this entire album in just two weeks and wrote all of his lyrics in just two days.
After the commercial success of their debut " Licensed to Ill ", Beastie Boys were labeled by some as "frat hip hop" due to their comical lyrics and simplistic samples. The debut album of the greatest American rock band of the 20th century.
If you are ever hosting a party and get nervous about its musical setting, you can put this album on and buy yourself another 40 minutes. No one disapproves of The Strokes, and if they do, they are wrong. This is probably my favorite non-Kanye album on this list. This record is a full orchestral experience, one that deserves to be blared through high-quality speakers so you can catch every nuance.
Sufjan is a great American storyteller, intertwining Midwestern points of reference with extremely human ideas: This is the record I stare at the ceiling to. This is that album for me, and could be for you, too. This album makes me happy in all the right ways and sad in a lot of the right ways, too.
Dog has some of the best harmonies in indie rock. Few songs are more fun to jump to than " The Rabbit, the Bat, and the Reindeer ". If you buy " Fate " I bet you really enjoy it. Daft Punk had a simply stated, yet difficult to execute goal heading into this album. In that sense, " RAM " is an enormous success. With real musicians taking the place of computers, humanity shines through the album, with the mix still as precise as anything you would expect from Daft Punk. You probably remember "Get Lucky" and sure that song is fun, but this album is so much more than that.
The self-released debut album from Bon Iver. I am a firm believer that you should have a few albums in your collection that will keep you company when you are sad. After two breakups, one with his girlfriend, one with his band, Justin Vernon set off for a secluded cabin in Wisconsin to spend three months in solitude.
After his hibernation, he returned to the world with " For Emma, Forever Ago ".
