Up to ten inches of rain fell in torrents over the city on Wednesday, flooding rivers and creeks and overwhelming the city's storm water system. Dozens of streets and highways were closed, giant sinkholes swallowed cars and homes and apartments were flooded.
Behind the Whole Foods grocery co-op in the east Hillside in Duluth, about six blocks up from Lake Superior, a retaining wall which stood about 20-feet tall has now been completely washed out. A 25-foot wide hole gapes where a creek that normally runs beneath the parking lot here has totally washed out the wall, leaving a running, muddy torrent of chocolatey, fuming water.
Ice melt and rainfall carried large quantities of clay, sand, and gravel from the ice mass. Clays could be moved long distances by moving water, while sand and gravel could not. Thus, sand and gravel landforms developed along the sides and front of the ice sheet; elongated accumulations of this material are known as kames. Mounds along the frontal edge of the ice are called moraines. Wherever a subglacial tunnel began infilling, long winding formations known as eskers would form. The sweeping plain of sand and gravel beyond the ice margin and a terminal moraine is called an outwash plain . The materials left under the glacier when it melts back is called the ground moraine or till plain. Till is highly permeable and creates a large ground reserve for water. This formation is highly desirable for human economic development as a source of water.
Under aerobic conditions, the A and B horizons of soils are magnetically enhanced due to neoformation of ferrimagnets through pedogenesis. This study systematically investigated soils developed on calcarenites of Neogene age in southern Spain to determine the dominant factors controlling the soil magnetism. Geochemical and clay mineral analyses indicate that aeolian dust significantly contribute to the A and B horizon material of the Spanish soil. Nevertheless, the magnetic enhancement of soils can be simply attributed to the pedogenically produced ferrimagnets in-situ. Therefore, the magnetism of Spanish soils is still linked to paleoclimatic variations regardless of the complexities of aeolian inputs from the Northwestern Africa.
Some stories practically write themselves, the details simple and clear. This investigation, spurred by a reader's tip, was no such story. In collaboration with reporter Bethania Palma and operations staffers Vinny Green and Chris Reilly, lead reporter Alex Kasprak spent weeks untangling the reality behind a group of entities posing as newspapers in key battleground states going into the 2020 election. Even if you're jaded by the torrent of daily headlines, including Russian meddling in U.S. election processes, you will want to spend some time with this story.

In early 1999, a young woman from Florida happened across an article online about the recent revival of an ancient British method for sculpting dirt houses. Intrigued, she used her savings to travel to Vermont for a five-day workshop, where she learned how to mix clay, sand, and straw by foot, and then knead lumps of the stuff into solid walls nearly as durable as concrete.
The simplest way to mix cob is with your feet. (Music and friends make this a lot of fun.) Spread a 5-gallon bucket of sand on the center of your tarp, then a bucket of wet clay over that, then another bucket of sand.
Mix the sand and clay to form a pile, adding about two more 5-gallon buckets of sand as you mix. Sprinkle straw over your pile. Keep using the tarp to flip your pile, and mix it until the straw is distributed throughout the pile.
Tens of millions of people were exposed to asbestos through hundreds of common consumer products including hair dryers, electric blankets, heat guns, molding clay, dry wall patch, attic insulation, pipe wrap insulation, fake fireplace logs and many more. Some of these products were banned by the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC). Many were not. The most notorious asbestos product that was never banned by the CPSC is vermiculite (asbestos) attic insulation, from the vermiculite mine in Libby, Montana. Vermiculite, which is contaminated with one of the most potent forms of asbestos, tremolite, was shipped around the country and processed into attic insulation and other products through 1992. EPA estimates that 30 million homes have asbestos (vermiculite) attic insulation made at processing plants all across the country [View maps]. When disturbed through home renovation or other causes, this insulation will produce significant and hazardous asbestos exposures.
