Insight: Job Related Injuries / The News Network / Museum Day / HellaCapella


 
 
 
Job Related Injuries Report In the first comprehensive review of its kind since 1992, a UC Davis researcher has estimated the national annual price tag of occupational injuries and illnesses at $250 billion, much higher than generally assumed.That figure is $31 billion more than the direct and indirect costs of all cancer, $76 billion more than diabetes and $187 billion more than strokes. The study strongly suggests that the U.S. should place greater emphasis on reducing work-related injury and illnesses, especially since the costs have risen by more than $33 billion (inflation adjusted) since the 1992 analysis, the author said.

Museum Day This is the first of the past 14 years that not all of Sacramento's Museum Day attractions will be free.  Last year record-breaking crowds swarmed the Sacramento Zoo and Fairy Tale Town, jamming roads in Land Park and backing up Interstate 5. Now the zoo and Fairy Tale Town will charge half its normal rate to deter visitors and give other attractions a chance to draw crowds.  We'll speak with Museum Day organizer, Delta Mello, about this seminal year for Museum Day and the event's growing popularity.  Beth Callahan, from the Discovery Science Center, also joins us to discuss some of the special offerings this Saturday.
