The fire fiasco in California last summer caused the main electric power company - PG&E - to turn off power to major portions of the state whenever a new fire broke out. This was due mainly to older infrastructures that could not be easily separated from town to town. With the COVID-19 virus sweeping over the country, many leaders have express concern as to whether the power systems in the U.S. will be affected....

It was later determined that the explosion resulted from a series of pre-launch mishaps that led to a sparking from exposed wires within the tank. The next several days were touch-and-go as the astronauts, Houston ground...

Europe, alongside countries such as Japan, is going through a profound demographic shift: stagnating birth rates and increasing life expectancy mean the proportion of older adults is increasing.

In addition, this age group is increasingly healthy into old age, meaning that even when they move into a care home, they want stimulating...

But even radically open-plan spaces – espoused by Frank Lloyd Wright and modernist architects in the 1930s – sometimes incorporated sliding doors. Sliding doors and partitions, of course, bring an almost immeasurable number of practical advantages to...
