3. a. You wont be likely to get ripped-off by a funeral home anymore. A rule going into effect today by the Federal Trade Commission, that began 12 years ago with federal staff investigation and led to hearings and court fights, intends to prevent any further rip-offs in the funeral home business.
c. You should easily be able to determine the cost of a funeral thanks to a new disclosure law going into effect today.

4. Detonated a mere 40 miles from a demonstration against nuclear testing, a nuclear weapon with a yield equivalent to 150,000 tons of TNT has raised more than just a little dust. The weapon was tested by the Department of Energy beneath the surface of the Pahute Mesa in the Nevada desert.
