The State of the Air Report, first published in 2000 by the American Lung Association, breaks down air quality data so anyone can see the quality of air in their community.Riverdale, May 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Congress passed the Clean Air Act in 1970. [Video] Camfil USA Air Filter Expert Discusses 2021 State of the Air Report, air filtration experts from Camfil discuss the findings of the 2021 State of the Air Report, which has been published each year since 2000 by the American Lung Association using data generated as a result of the Clean Air Act. “The American Lung Association has spent many years creating awareness for the importance of clean air and done significant research to quantify the impacts of dirty air,” says Kevin Wood, the Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Camfil USA. Mr. Wood has been in the air filtration industry for over three decades. What is the State of the Air Report? The Clean Air Act required the Environment Protection Agency (EPA) to set limits for six prominent outdoor air pollutants (particulate matter, nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, ozone, lead, and carbon monoxide). The State of the Air Report, first published in 2000 by the American Lung Association, breaks down air quality data so anyone can see the quality of air in their community. Since then, air pollution monitoring equipment has been updated and installed across the United States. The most recent State of the Air Reports now focus on nationwide data on ozone and PM2.5 (particulate matter smaller than 2.5 microns in diameter), two of the most dangerous outdoor air pollutants. (The full report can be accessed here.) According to Mr. Wood, highlighting data on these two pollutants is particularly useful for three main reasons: To outline the importance of both particle and gas phase air pollution. To provide context on new evidence which suggests the impact of pollution on human health, including areas such as child brain development, respiratory conditions, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer. Identify the geographical areas where people are at the most risk for health damage due to high exposure to air pollution. (2021’s report indicates that 135 million Americans across 217counties live in areas where the air contains unhealthy levels of pollution for part or all of the year. This is over 40% of the population.) What is PM2.5? PM2.5 refers to particulate matter that is smaller than 2.5 microns in diameter. (For scale, a human hair has a diameter of approximately 100 microns.) These particles are inhalable, and can cause serious damage to lung tissue. What Are the Effects of PM2.5? A large body of scientific literature has linked particulate matter to the following health risks, according to the EPA: premature death in people with heart or lung disease nonfatal heart attacks irregular heartbeat aggravated asthma decreased lung function increased respiratory symptoms, such as irritation of the airways, coughing or difficulty breathing Particulate matter also has disastrous effects on the environment, including depleting soil nutrients, lowering the pH of natural water sources, damaging forests and crops, and affecting the diversity of ecosystems. What is Ground-Level Ozone? Ozone is a molecule made up of three oxygen atoms. Unlike the oxygen molecules we breathe, which are made up of two oxygen atoms, ozone is highly unstable and reactive. Naturally formed ozone is an essential component of the earth’s upper atmosphere, forming a miles-thick layer that protects terrestrial life from harmful ultraviolet light. However, ground level ozone presents a major hazard to human health. Ground level ozone is formed by reactions between nitrogen oxides and hydrocarbons (which are also referred to as VOCs, or volatile organic compounds). These reactions are facilitated by heat and sunlight. What Are the Effects of Ground-Level Ozone? Ozone is an unstable molecule, which means that it easily reacts with other molecules, including those in the human body. According to the American Lung Association, the following groups are at higher risk of being harmed by ozone: children and teenagers adults over the age of 65 people with existing lung conditions, including asthma, and COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) people who work and exercise outdoors Long-term exposure to ozone has been linked to premature death and lower infant birth weight. Short-term exposure to ozone can cause: shortness of breath, wheezing, and coughing due to constriction of tracheal muscles increased susceptibility to respiratory infections and pulmonary inflammation asthma attacks aggravation of chronic lung conditions What Factors May Impact Air Quality In the Future? According to Camfil’s air filtration experts, there are three prominent factors that may impact air quality in the future. Climate change. Because heat and sunlight facilitate the chemical reactions that create ground-level ozone, increased temperatures and longer periods of sunlight are likely to lead to higher readings of ground-level ozone. Wildfires. The smoke from wildfires affects more than just the west coast where the fires predominantly take place. Wildfire smoke can travel thousands of miles, shrouding towns and cities across the country with both large and very small particles. (Read more about the effects of wildfire smoke and how to protect yourself against them.) COVID-19 and future viruses. Respiratory droplets infected with COVID-19 virus particles are known to be 2.5 microns or smaller, and most disease exposure occurs via airborne routes. Traditional levels of air filtration in buildings and homes is not adequate to stop the circulation throughout a building if asymptomatic carriers occupy the space. Overall, it’s important to remember that even in areas that aren’t exposed to dangerous levels of outdoor pollution, pollution is likely to rise in the future. (Indoor air is up to five times as polluted as outdoor air. Find out more here.) How to Protect Yourself from Outdoor Air Pollution Camfil’s air quality experts have provided the following suggestions: Employers should make sure that their work environments have proper air handling units and appropriate filtration systems. Filters should maintain their rated efficiency the entire time in use. Where filtration efficiency may be limited by minimal space in an air handling unit, systems should be supplemented with in-room air purifiers, such as Camfil’s City M. If ozone is of particular concern in your area, additional filter stages in the air handling unit may be required to accommodate both molecular (or gas) filters and particulate filters. Due to the continuing risk of COVID-19, upgrading to MERV15 or higher filtration should be considered when planning improvements or upgrades to your building’s current ventilation system. Due to varying needs, budgets, local regulations, and existing infrastructure, there is no one size fits all approach to upgrading your building’s air filtration system.

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — Pressure is mounting on South Korean President Moon Jae-in to pardon Samsung heir Lee Jae-yong, who is back in prison after his conviction in a massive corruption scandal, even though business has rarely looked better at South Korea’s largest company. Lee is just the latest South Korean corporate boss to run his business from behind bars, communicating decisions through visiting company executives. But his imprisonment is causing national handwringing over the future of the technology giant in the country sometimes called the “Samsung Republic.” Many people — from business leaders and editorial writers to even Buddhist monks — have urged Moon to release Lee for the sake of an economy heavily dependent on Samsung’s technology exports. They worry Lee’s imprisonment could compromise Samsung’s speed and decisiveness, hindering its competitiveness in the fast-changing technology business. Lee has been in prison for nearly four months and few expect him to serve his full prison sentence through July 2022. There's speculation Moon could free him on Buddha’s Birthday, which falls on Wednesday. There’s also Liberation Day in August, which celebrates Korea’s independence from Japanese colonial rule at the end of World War II. That also has often brought presidential pardons of high-profile politicians and businesspeople. Moon's office said he will consider both the intensifying competition in the semiconductor market and public feelings about fairness before deciding whether to pardon Lee. Lee runs Samsung as vice chairman. He's also the country's richest person. He is serving a 2 1/2-year sentence for bribing then-President Park Geun-hye and her close confidante, who are serving lengthier prison terms, to win government support for a 2015 merger between two Samsung affiliates that tightened his control over the corporate empire. Samsung's latest results suggest it is doing just fine. The company posted a near 50% jump in operating profit and its $58 billion revenue was the highest ever in the first three months of the year. Demand for its mainstay computer memory chips, TVs and other products has surged as the pandemic has forced millions to stay home. And Samsung's sleek Galaxy smartphones and tablets are the biggest competition for Apple’s iPhones and iPads. Samsung has announced ambitious plans to expand its computer chip manufacturing. Last week it said it will invest 171 trillion won ($151 billion) through 2030 in higher-margin logic chips and its foundry business for contract chipmaking as it expands beyond its dominance in memory chips. The company expects demand for advanced chips to soar in coming years, lifted by emerging technologies such as fifth generation (5G) wireless networks, artificial intelligence and self-driving cars. Still, analysts say Samsung is increasingly falling behind Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. in the race for high-tech chips. The world’s biggest contract chipmaker, TSMC controls 55% of the global foundry business versus Samsung’s 17% share, according to South Korea’s Trade Ministry. Both could be threatened by U.S. efforts to reduce American dependence on Asian supply chains and rebuild the declining U.S. chip industry in response to chip shortages that have hobbled American auto manufacturing in recent months. In a statement to The Associated Press, Samsung said Lee’s role is to "contribute to the company’s overall strategic direction, and make decisions related to the future growth through his insights and global network of business leaders.” The company declined to comment on calls for Lee's release and also would not say how often company officials are visiting him. “It’s not difficult for Lee to manage the company from prison through his visitors, and it’s not like he had ever run Samsung like an omnipotent king,” said Chung Sun-sup, chief executive of corporate analysis firm Chaebul.com. Even though Lee is the grandson of Samsung's founder and is the family's third generation helmsman of the company, important decisions are still weighed by the board, he noted. “But who knows what Samsung is missing when Lee isn’t visiting business sites or traveling abroad for new opportunities?” he said. Lee's imprisonment comes at a time when Samsung should be pushing for a major reshaping of its semiconductor business, said Lee Seung-woo, a senior analyst at Seoul-based Eugene Investment and Securities. Samsung’s rise as a global technology powerhouse drew from its dual strength in parts and finished products. But that's proving a disadvantage in its competition with TSMC as major clients like Apple shift orders to TSMC to avoid relying on chips manufactured by a competitor. Samsung should be considering bold moves, such as splitting its foundry business into a separate company and listing it on the U.S. stock market to ease the concern of clients, Lee said. “Lee Jae-yong clearly has a role to do,” he said. “Lee could be meeting (Apple CEO) Tim Cook asking Apple to invest in the new foundry company.” Samsung’s daily operations are mainly handled by co-CEOs who each lead its semiconductor, smartphones and consumer electronics divisions. Samsung reaped robust profits during Lee's earlier stints in jail, in 2017 and 2018, when it finalized a deal to acquire American auto electronics firm Harman. That assuaged jitters about a possible void in decision making. Legal troubles have long dogged the company. Lee’s late father, its former chairman Lee Kun-hee, received suspended sentences in 1996 and 2008 for crimes including bribery and tax evasion. The scandal that snagged Lee Jae-yong again underscored traditionally cozy ties between “chaebol,” or South Korea’s family-owned conglomerates, and the government. Park was ousted and jailed in 2017 following months of protests by millions. Moon has been sidestepping the pardon issue for months, having taken office vowing to curb the excesses of chaebol families after winning the presidential by-election following Park’s ouster. South Korea has long been lenient toward white-collar crimes, letting convicted tycoons run their businesses from prison. Officials say that's best for the economy even though the crimes committed by chaebol bosses usually put their personal interests ahead of corporate concerns. SK Group Chairman Chey Tae-won held nearly 1,800 meetings with his lawyers and other visitors in 17 months through July 2014 while serving a four-year prison term for embezzlement and other crimes, according Justice Ministry comments to lawmakers. Hyundai Motor Corp. reportedly set up a “liaison office" nearby to receive guests and staff visiting its former chairman Chung Mong-koo after he was arrested in 2006 on charges of embezzling company funds to bribe officials. Chey and Chung received presidential pardons, as did Lee’s father. The calls for Lee's release show Samsung still holds excessive influence, said Park Sang-in, a professor of public enterprise policy at Seoul National University. He believes pardoning Lee would damage public trust. “Was there ever a time when pardoning a chaebol boss really helped a company or the Korean economy? No, not even once,” Park said.

(Bloomberg) -- Sign up for the New Economy Daily newsletter, follow us @economics and subscribe to our podcast.Japan’s economy shrank more than expected during the first three months of the year, raising the possibility of a double-dip recession as the country struggles to contain infections and speed up its vaccine rollout.Gross domestic product contracted an annualized 5.1% from the previous quarter, ending six months of double-digit growth, as businesses cut investment, shoppers held back spending and government outlays fell amid a suspension of a travel-promotion campaign to help the ailing tourism industry.Economists had forecast an overall contraction of 4.5%.The worse-than-expected result leaves the economy in a vulnerable position this quarter, as Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga’s administration struggles to find the right balance in a targeted approach to virus containment that attempts to limit damage to the economy and keep the staging of the Olympics on track.“If the state of emergency is extended, that will certainly raise the odds of a contraction,” said economist Yoshiki Shinke at Dai-Ichi Life Research Institute. “Consumer spending is the biggest missing piece for the economy and it’s hard to predict because it’s very much dependent on the virus situation.”Suga last week added three more prefectures to the latest emergency, putting about half of the economy under restrictions that are slightly tighter than the ones in winter, but still less draconian than Europe’s lockdowns. Restaurants and bars in the biggest cities are now being asked to refrain from serving alcohol in addition to closing early.Failure to end the restrictions at the end of May and to avoid a slip back into recession would pile pressure on Suga to take extra action to right the economy and maintain his hopes of surviving as premier as the country heads into a general election that must be held by the autumn.Inability to peg back infections could also fuel concern over the staging of the Tokyo Olympics. Canceling the Games would deal another blow to the economy.What Bloomberg’s Economist Says...“In the details of Japan’s deeper-than-expected GDP contraction in 1Q, there was even more bad news -- a surprise drop in private investment and an unexpectedly steep buildup in inventories. These signal weakness in the manufacturing sector -- a rare growth driver amid the virus emergency -- and add to downside risks to the economy in 2Q.--Yuki Masujima, economistTo read the full report, click here.“The government may end up putting together an extra budget to change the situation,” said economist Hiroaki Muto at Sumitomo Life Insurance Co. “They may not be able to compile a big one, but they might pull together about 20 trillion yen ($183 billion) of measures.”Additional spending would add to extra budgets worth over 70 trillion yen to deal with the virus and support the economy last year.The first quarter drop in capital investment signals companies are more cautious about the outlook than earlier expected. Though the preliminary data is often heavily revised, a chorus of business executives have started to voice concern over what they see as an unacceptably slow vaccine rollout in one of the world’s richest countries.Still, strong exports and industrial production, supported by the global recovery, continue to provide a bedrock of support for Japan’s economy, even though a rise in imports caused the overall trade component of the GDP to go negative in the first quarter.Japan’s Exports Jump Most Since 2017 Amid Global Trade RecoveryConsumers also didn’t retrench as much as economists feared last quarter, a fact that may signal a reservoir of underlying demand that could help power the recovery once restrictions are removed.“Once the virus situation starts to be more contained and people’s activity becomes more normalized, pent-up demand is likely to emerge,” economy minister Yasutoshi Nishimura said. Japan isn’t heading toward a big contraction in the second quarter like last year and economic activity will broaden out as vaccinations proceed, he added.But rising infection numbers indicate the government still hasn’t got the balance of its measures right or hasn’t adjusted its restrictions quickly enough to account for new virus strains as infections rise and the logic of holding the Olympics is called into question. An Asahi Shimbun newspaper poll on Monday showed more than 80% of respondents were against staging the Games this year.Until earlier this year, Japan was seen a relatively successful example of virus control, having achieved low infection rates and deaths without full lockdown measures.But the positive optics have changed as the country’s lengthy vaccine approval process and its slow rollout have left the country well behind the U.S, the U.K. and other countries with more aggressive inoculation programs. So far, only about 3% Japan’s the population has received even a single dose.“The best economic measure is to accelerate vaccination,” said Dai-Ichi’s Shinke. “While many other countries consider loosening restrictions, Japan isn’t there yet.”(Updates with economist’s comments on possibility of more government stimulus.)More stories like this are available on bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) — Roads were flooded, water-logged cars abandoned in the street and high water vehicles dispatched to help people as heavy rain fell across southern Louisiana Monday. In some areas of western Louisiana still recovering from back-to-back hurricanes last year more than a foot of rain fell. The National Weather Service said in a Facebook post Monday that south Lake Charles in western Louisiana saw 12 to 15 inches (30 to 38 centimeters) of rain in a 12-hour period. But the rainfall wasn't limited to that one area. Numerous areas in Calcasieu Parish where Lake Charles is located saw totals of 8 to 10 inches (20 to 25 centimeters) of rainfall Monday. The mayor of Lake Charles, Nic Hunter, told The Advocate that they didn't have an exact number of flooded homes but that it would likely be in the hundreds. Hunter was mayor last fall when the city was hit by Hurricane Laura on August 27 and then six weeks later by Hurricane Delta. “We will continue to be resilient through this event. But I will admit it would be nice if Mother Nature would give us a break," Hunter told the newspaper. Parts of southeastern Texas and western Louisiana were under flash flood warnings on Monday afternoon, according to the National Weather Service's Lake Charles office. Several inches (centimeters) of rain also feel on parts of Arkansas. Tornadoes also were a threat as storms pounded south Louisiana. In Lafayette, The Daily Advertiser reported that multiple warnings of possible tornadoes prompted shelter-in-place warnings at area schools, where students were held past the usual dismissal time until the danger passed. The National Weather Service in Lake Charles reported that the public reported a possible tornado in the Church Point area of rural Acadia Parish, west of Lafayette. There were no immediate reports of injuries or major damage. The Baton Rouge area was also hammered with rain Monday. The National Weather Service's New Orleans branch said on its Twitter feed that according to radar estimates as much as 12 inches of rain may have fallen in parts of East Baton Rouge, Ascension and Iberville parishes. In Ascension Parish, Parish President Clint Cointment put all employees responsible for drainage issues on alert after the “massive amount of rain.” Meanwhile, the sheriff's office for Calcasieu parish was asking residents to stay off the roads and said they had already deployed high water vehicles and boats to assist residents, KPLC reported. Photos on local media showed water up to the doorsteps in one subdivision of Lake Charles while vehicles sought to navigate flooded streets in another part of town. The rainy weather is expected to continue in southern Louisiana through the middle of the week. Gov. John Bel Edwards declared a state of emergency late Monday for southwest Louisiana. Western Louisiana is still recovering from back-to-back hurricanes Laura and then Delta last year. And then, in February, frigid temperatures froze pipes and led to problems getting drinking water to area residents. The National Weather Service’s Little Rock office said on their Twitter feed, that parts of central Arkansas also had seen two to more than four inches (5-10 centimeters) of rain as of Monday morning. More rainfall is expected this week, the agency said. The Associated Press
