Explosive Start of Classes at Johnson & Wales http://ripr.org/post/explosive-start-classes-johnson-wales <p>The first day of classes started with a bang for many students at Johnson &amp; Wales University when a utility cable exploded underneath two dormitories. The blast occurred at roughly 5:00 in the morning. Johnson &amp; Wales officials said they had to evacuate nearly 1,000 students, most of them freshmen.</p><p>National Grid is investigating the cause of the explosion, which appeared to center on a cable located in an underground vault just next to the university's Providence dorms. No one was injured in the incident.</p> Wed, 11 Sep 2013 12:03:27 +0000 Elisabeth Harrison 21469 at http://ripr.org Food as Medicine: Doctors and Chefs Training Together http://ripr.org/post/food-medicine-doctors-and-chefs-training-together <p>There’s no shortage of advice on healthy eating.
