Australian Asbestos Worries

The ferry services to and from Manly, Australia were cancelled yesterday for two hours after staff raised concerns about work on removing asbestos.

Sydney Ferries Corporation said an upgrade of the wharf began two months ago, part of which involves the removal of asbestos from the site.

Sydney Ferries staff at the wharf held a stopwork meeting after becoming concerned the asbestos might pose a threat to their health.

They resumed work after inspectors were called in to the site.

I have a rare disease in which I can only relieve my bowels in the comfort of my own home. I'm nearly 40 years old, and I have never emptied my bowels at school, or during work hours on a job for that matter. My disease is called "Krapathomealona". Is this foul handicap anything similar to Mesothelioma ??
