Facing collapse, the famed Arecibo Observatory will be demolished 

 

The world-famous Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico, known for helping scientists peer into deep space and listen for distant radio waves, is set to be decommissioned and demolished after engineers concluded that the facility’s structure is at risk of a collapse. While teams will try to salvage some parts of the observatory, the decommission will bring an end to the popular 57-year-old telescope, which has been featured in numerous films and television shows.

The decision comes after two major cables failed at the facility within the last few months, causing significant damage to the observatory. The National Science Foundation (NSF), which oversees Arecibo, assessed the impact of the cable breaks and found that the facility’s other cables could also fail soon. If some of the remaining cables break, engineers fear that the 900-ton suspended platform above the facility could come crashing down on Arecibo’s iconic 1,000-foot-wide dish. It’s also possible that three surrounding towers, which stand at more than 300 feet tall, could topple over in any direction, potentially hitting the visitor’s center or other important nearby buildings.

Moving companies in such high demand as New Yorkers flee the city 

 

Rich Manhattanites are fleeing the city so fast because of the pandemic and deteriorating quality of life in the Big Apple that moving companies can barely keep up with them.

“It’s nuts!’’ Perry Chance of Show Up movers told The Post on Sunday. “We have four of our own trucks — but we have so many books that we had to start using U-Haul trucks!”

“The volume has increased by at least 70 percent” in the past few months, he said.

“[Clients] are mostly moving out of luxury buildings. [People] say the rich are leaving New York. Well, they are!”

“When you have an office on Park Ave, and you don’t see anyone but the less fortunate, the homeless, no more day-to-day workers, the high rent makes no sense,” explained a small-business owner at the U-Haul truck rental center on West 23rd Street in Chelsea, as he prepared for a move to Long Island.

Americans are fleeing urban centers like New York, New Jersey and Illinois in huge numbers and moving to remote pastures in Vermont, Idaho and Oregon during a surge of mobility sparked by the pandemic

California looks like a nightmare from space right now 

 

The second and third largest fires in California history are now burning at the same time. Along with over 500 other fires.

The Golden State — a region with long, dry, and sunny Mediterranean summers — naturally burns each year. But not like this.

The recent satellite and aerial imagery below show California blanketed in dense smoke as flames ignite mountain, chaparral, and desert regions. These landscapes exist within a changing fire regime, stoked by a relentlessly warming climate.

A changing climate is revealed in trends. Here's one: The 10 biggest fires in California history have all burned in the last 17 years, since 2003. The three largest blazes have burned since 2018.

It's easy to see why. Wildfires are the interaction of weather, climate, and fuels (like dried-out grasses and plants). "That’s just physics," John Bailey, a fire ecologist at Oregon State University, told Mashable in 2019. But temperatures in California have been rising since the late 1800s. What's more, heat waves are growing more intense in a warmer climate, and a heat wave of rare intensity has baked the West for weeks — perhaps setting the record for the highest temperature ever recorded on Earth. This dry, hot air parches vegetation, significantly boosting the odds for fires.

California wildfires become a target for looters. A firefighter is among the victims. His wallet was stolen, bank account 'drained.'
