Nightclub fire in Brazil

by Bill Osler / December 31, 2004 8:03 PM PST

Another rock concert fire. This time the fireworks may have been started by the fans. The worst problem, though was the locked exit. It's too bad people don't learn from others' mistakes.

It's Argentina.

But a terrible tragedy nevertheless.

I agree, how many more times are club owners around the world going to lock emergency exits, and kill innocent people?

Glad to hear it. Doesn't bring back the dead or heal the burn scars of the survivors, though.

Happens in the "safe" USA, too. Same pattern: Greed, fun-seekers, stupidity at the most basic level, tragedy, starts over with people who don't read about the pattern or who know but don't care!

Nothing wrong with having a little fun, but how to avoid the traps?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
