BHP iron ore train services recommence in WA as a second train derails

quote [ A second iron ore train has derailed in WA's outback within a week.

Mineral Resources Limited and Arc Infrastructure have confirmed that about 30 empty iron ore wagons derailed south of Norseman on Sunday morning, following the deliberate derailment of a runaway BHP train in the state's north earlier in the week. ]

Maybe they need to add more humans back on the trains to weigh them down and keep them on track.

Dutch Prisons Are Being Converted Into Hotels And Apartments Because of Lack of Prisoners

quote [ The Netherlands has a problem with prisons and prisoners, just like any other country. But while the rest of the world is struggling with overcrowding, the Netherlands is struggling to fill its prisons. Indeed, the country is actually running out of people to lock up, such that the government has been forced to close prisons throughout the country because they have been sitting empty. ]

There are no prisons in our kingdom

How Gallaudet University?s architects are redefining deaf space

quote [ Groups of signers will naturally form circles or arcs to include everyone. They avoid long, rectangular tables, which impede views. The least Deaf-supportive space Bauman could think of, when I asked him what it might be, was the traditional classroom with straight rows of desks; that layout breaks up lines of communication, except between student and teacher. ]

Another one about architecture and accessiblity. See also the actual guideline set.

Ed Simon looks into how, regardless of whether this prophetess witch actually existed or not, the legend of Mother Shipton has wielded great power for centuries ? from the turmoil of Tudor courts, through the frictions of civil war, to the spectre of Victorian apocalypse. ]

Eugene Shoemaker Is Still the Only Man Buried on the Moon

quote [ ENOUGH HUMAN BEINGS HAVE WALKED on the Moon at this point that it?s almost the ?visiting the Empire State Building? of space exploration (that?s 12, if you?re keeping track). But for as many living people who have taken a walk on that far away rock, there is only one dead man who?s ever been put to rest there. ]
