Hi, I am making this module: http://modules.danordesign.com/modules/oil_spill/ about the tragic ongoing oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico... but I have run into a little problem with the theme on the site, i suspect... In the News Feed the arrow is double, but only in this theme... I can't figure it out.. Is there a css guru that can give an advice?
PS! The module will be free to download if you want to put it on your site, once finished... It's an important module.. Let everbody see and focus on the problem... be aware that this is a HUGE disaster... They have met pressure unknown to man...

This kind of deep well have only been attemped once before, by the russians, but at least they had sense enough to drill on dry land, not 5000 feet below surface... :(

It seems the background image is applied to the div and the link.
Remove the background: inherit from style.css for links a or disable it for the News feed links.

I wish you much success with the module!

As even only the half of what I read about it (Latest updates? Can it be closed?) is true, then we are going to see this oil on all shores of every country on the Atlantic Ocean.

Thank you! I hope many will put it on their site so everybody can see with their own eyes what's going on.... I have worked a few years in the offshore oil industri myself and I have read a lot about this accident... The pressure they met killed all the safety valves and even the fail safe valve was blown away... it is called fail safe valve for a reason.... I guess there are no way they can fix it by trying to contain the flow because there are no equipment made to handle it... if so they would have used it in the first place...

The only thing they can do is probably to place a nuke (yes, a nuke) and cover it naturally... but, if it fails, they could really mess up... :/

*Shakes head* Unbelievable...
Never let a man who does not believe something can be done, talk to a man that is doing it.
