Under the situations of remaining the shelves’ strength, stiffness and overall stability, manufacturers attempt to reduce the weight of your shelves, cut down the consumption of steel, and lessen the bearing capacity of warehouse shelves to meet the needs from the warehouse.

How one N.Y. museum is already prepping for the next big flood


The architecture of the future is going to be a lot of bunkers and shacks. The bunkers will be for those people who want something sturdy enough to take on whatever climate change can dish out. The shacks — already perfected by generations of uninsured floodplain dwellers — will be for those who don’t even want to bother. Build it cheap enough, and why even bother crying if it gets washed away?

It comes as a surprise to absolutely no one that museums are coming down on the “bunker” side of this divide. Manhattan’s new Whitney Museum is a sign of things to come. Writes John Whitaker in The Atlantic:

[T]he new Whitney’s most intriguing feature might be one that’s gone largely unnoticed: its custom flood-mitigation system, which was designed halfway through the museum’s construction, in the aftermath of 2012’s Hurricane Sandy, when more than 5 million gallons of water…

The Santa Barbara oil spill is already killing a lot of animals


This story was originally published by Wired and is reproduced here as part of the Climate Desk collaboration.

On May 18, over 100,000 gallons of oil gushed onto a nine-mile stretch of California coastline. A buried pipeline ruptured next to a culvert that led to a Santa Barbara beach, sending oil straight into the water. Government officials have closed both Refugio State Beach and El Captain State Beach until early June; it’s the worst oil spill to hit the Santa Barbara coastline since 1969, when 4.2 million gallons of oil slicked the Pacific and helped trigger the modern environmental movement.

This isn’t just any beach. In the Santa Barbara Channel, cold water from the north meets warm water from the south, carrying a mosaic of unusual species. It’s almost Mediterranean, and it’s rare. Off California, massive forests of kelp — the largest type of marine algae — create “this really cool three-dimensional…

Why are federal dollars financing this thirsty crop in Arizona?


This story was produced through a collaboration between ProPublica and Matter.

State Route 87, the thin band of pavement that approaches the mostly shuttered town of Coolidge, Ariz., cuts through some of the least hospitable land in the country. The valley of red and brown sand is interrupted occasionally by rock and saguaro cactus. It’s not unusual for summer temperatures to top 116 degrees. And there is almost no water; this part of Arizona receives less than nine inches of rainfall each year.

Then Route 87 tacks left and the dead landscape springs to life. Barren roadside is replaced by thousands of acres of cotton fields, their bright, leafy green stalks and white, puffy bolls in neat rows that unravel for miles. It’s a vision of bounty where it would be least expected. Step into the hip-high cotton shrubs, with the soft, water-soaked dirt giving way beneath your boot soles…

Study says street harassment is everywhere, still sucks


Would you like a joke? Here you go:

Q: What’s just like hot garbage and hangs out all over the street?

A: Street harassers! (And also literal garbage.)

Hollaback! and Cornell University have just published the results of the largest international study of street harassment to date. (ICYMI, we wrote about the United States-focused portion of that study last month.) This great infographic sums up some of their results:

Remember: Street harassment really, truly sucks — and it’s actually powerful enough to keep women off streets and public transit. Now let’s all take a deep breath and deal with our catcalling-related frustration with this excellent song from Tacocat:

An inseparable friend by Vijaya Gowrisankar (Me, as a Child Poetry Series)

An inseparable friend
by Vijaya Gowrisankar

My childhood memories are laced with
Maths moments, my love for the subject,
passion for it, one-sided private talks

I shared all my feelings with Maths – sorrow,
happiness, doubts, fears, heart aches, conclusions,
all in return for a non-judgmental listening ear

After a tired day Maths consoled me,
cracking a difficult problem in a jiffy
boosted my self-confidence and left a smile

Maths defined me, my friendships with others,
I helped them understand nuances of problem-solving,
love echoed in my voice as I explained solutions

It was my anchor, my identity, it remains
so with all my friends — they remember
me even today, as the girl who loved Maths

Every spare moment was spent with Maths,
from morning to night, seeking solace
in solutions, it remained my strength through
growing up years, my closest companion
