Queensland Dragline: Moving a 3,000 ton giant in half the time
One of the largest mining companies in Queensland, Australia, faced a major challenge. It needed to move a 3,000-ton dragline excavator from one coal mine to another, almost 100 kilometers away. ‘Walking’ there would have caused significant wear-and-tear on the machine, and not allowed the company to take advantage of scheduled rail network shutdowns required to cross critical infrastructure. Mammoet was able to provide a safe, effective solution to load, move and unload the dragline using Self-Propelled Modular Transporters (SPMTs), ensuring the company did not lose out on productivity for this vital piece of mining equipment.

The Resource Crisis Fuelling Conflict in Papua New Guinea (2010)
Resource Rage (2010): Tensions are coming to a head in Papua New Guinea over the government's new plan to sell of the country's natural gas.

His people have responded with violent protests, which could plunge the troubled nation back into chaos. "It's just like raping a woman. They're going to rape our resources." The landowners living along the length of the proposed pipeline have been promised huge benefits from the plan to extract gas from the Southern Highlands and export it to Asia. But they don't believe it and are up in arms: in scenes of chaos fuelled by a legacy of watching promised riches pass them by, they cut down power-lines, wielding guns and blocking roads: "You never listen - I'll chop you people". Ironically, most of the people living in the resource-rich Southern Highlands live without power, without hospitals and without education. The MD of Australian ‘Oil-Search’- which has a 29% stake in the project - agreed that the money the government has received in the past has not been seen in resource areas”. Project Operator Exxon Mobil refused to comment. But with four dead, the former commander of the PNG Defence Force has confessed to fears that, "we are setting the stage for another Bougainville crisis in the Southern Highlands".

Inside Juvenile Detention
As recently as 2005, the state of Virginia had eight centers like Bon Air Juvenile Correctional Facility, housing more than 1,300 delinquent youth. But by 2017, after a series of reforms, that number had shrunk to one. “It's not that you can't do good work here,” said Andy Block, who, since 2014, has served as the juvenile-justice department’s director. “But the place itself and the design and the size and the location are barriers to doing good work.” Block and others are working to close Bon Air and replace it with something that reflects the juvenile justice reforms that have taken hold in Virginia and across the country—a system that once focused on confinement is now dedicated to rehabilitation. In recent years, more than 70 percent of Virginia's juvenile inmates were rearrested within three years of their release.* Read more on The Atlantic: https://www.theatlantic.com/projects/juvenile-justice/ *This documentary originally stated that Virginia has one of the highest recidivism rates in the country. This characterization was based on incomplete data. The documentary also stated that the three-year rearrest rate for current Bon Air inmates would be 74 percent. This was the rate for former juvenile inmates in Virginia in 2014. We regret the errors.

Australian PM Calls For Poll Several Months Earlier
Against the backdrop of a flagging economy and heated debate over sensitive political issues like asylum seekers, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull fired the starting gun on Sunday on one of the longest election campaigns in Australia's history. Using rarely invoked powers to dissolve both houses of parliament after the upper house Senate repeatedly blocked government legislation, Turnbull officially called federal elections for July 2. This is several months earlier than originally planned. The federal poll throws up the specter of more political instability in Australia, where infighting among the leading parties has resulted in a revolving door to the top job at a time when Australia is trying to rebalance its economy away from a once-in-a-generation mining boom. Turnbull is considered a moderate in the conservative Liberal Party-led coalition government. He'd became the fourth leader in two years when he deposed right-wing predecessor Tony Abbott in an internal party coup in September. He goes to the polls as Australia finally shows signs of a slowdown. The country is renowned for its almost unscathed survival of the global financial crisis http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/reuters/topNews/~3/-8JSp9w41lU/us-australia-politics-election-idUSKCN0XZ022 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Deep Sea Fish Farming in Geodesic Domes: Upgrade
In this episode of Upgrade, Motherboard goes to Baja California, Mexico to get a firsthand look at these free floating pods, and to get an understanding for why we need better ways to cultivate our future food sources. Whether it’s found on a plate of sushi, grilled in our backyard, or thrown on pasta, seafood is a staple for many diets around the world, and demand is growing. And as the commercial seafood industry booms, fish stocks worldwide face perilous declines. We’ve surpassed our capacity to sustainably fish wild caught fish, shrimp, and mollusks from the ocean, and so we’ve turned to aquaculture, or fish farming, as a strategy to meet demand for our growing appetites for water-borne critters. The aquaculture industry is growing fast. According to the FAO, per capita production of seafood from aquaculture has increased 6.9 percent annually since 1970. Unfortunately for us and for our Earth, current methods of fish farming often involve crowded, tethered pens, which can have poor water circulation and contribute to the spread of disease, and put large amounts of environmental stress on the surrounding waterways. This is where Steve Page of Ocean Farm Technologies comes in. Taking inspiration from naturally-occurring schools of fish and Buckminster Fuller’s geodesic domes, Page co-designed the Aquapod, a free floating, untethered deep ocean fish habitat which reduces overcrowding, and creates less stress on surrounding environments due to its unique ability to change location with the ocean's current.

Mine Shafts Causing IA Sinkhole
DUBUQUE, IA - (CBS2/FOX28) When a sink hole swallowed a man and his entire house in Florida one year ago, the phenomena went from being a scientific curiosity to a deadly menace. That's why when his neighbor's driveway dropped six inches in one night in Nick Thumma's Dubuque neighborhood, he immediately became concerned. The street in front of the home he just moved into in March disappeared three times before. As of Monday night a cavernous pit about 20 feet deep and 50 feet across had opened once again. It snapped the water main to his house and made Thumma wonder if it might keep growing, " If there's a shaft here in the street, does that mean there's one that runs under my home or into my yard .. so that's a concern. " Here along the Mississippi River in Dubuque that sinking feeling is less about geology and much more about history. The city is built on top of a maze of old mine shafts. Lead and zinc mining, starting in the late 1700s, created boom towns from Platteville to Galena to the bluffs of Dubuque. Thumma says that may be common knowledge for some, but he would like to see the city warn people that they all could be at risk for similar problems. By some accounts there are more than 90 miles of horizontal mine shafts running under the city and another 2,000 vertical. Assistant City Engineer Bob Schiesl says unfortunately early miners were not good map makers and when they finished with a vein they normally walked away with no thought of filling in the void. Schiesl says there are miles of shafts that were never recorded at all and most of the records from the 1800s are less than accurate. He says the standard repair is to fill the holes with large rock, then fill the rest with concrete until it reaches street level. He says, so far, they just haven't found the bottom of this one and crews will try again Tuesday to fix it and reopen Ramona Street. Thumma says in addition to raising awareness he's talking to lawmakers about insurance. He says you can buy flood and fire insurance in Iowa, but nothing to guard against damage from sink holes. Living around so many potential pit falls in Dubuque, he says he would like to at least see that much change.

Louisiania: Joe Muranyi, Jimmy Mazzy, Eli Newberger
February, 1996, performance of the M 'N' M (Mazzy-Newberger-Muranyi) Trio at the Sancy Snow Jazz Festival, Mt. Dore, France. Two months later, the trio recorded "Halfway to Heaven" for Stomp Off Records. http://www.jazzbymail.com/ViewArtist.aspx?iAID=1471&sPC=1471_4249&sAN=M%20'n'%20M%20Trio Here's an excerpt from the notes by jazz historian and clarinetist Fred Starr: Early jazz produced surprisingly few really small groups. Yes, there were string bands playing on the galleries of New Orleans homes, and Jelly Roll Morton did his famous trio recordings in the ''20s. But these were exceptions. And no one - absolutely no one - conceived the unlikely possibility of a trio consisting of clarinet, high tenor banjo, and profundo CC tuba. Like the bumblebee, this arrangement shouldn''t fly. Yet, the M ''N'' M Trio makes it do so, gloriously. So unlikely is this combination that a word about its origins is in order. The key figure is definitely Jimmy Mazzy, the virtuoso banjo player from Holliston, Massachusetts. Known to thousands for his long run with the Paramount Jazz Band of Boston and for his inexhaustible mine of rare lyrics, this self-effacing artist carries on the great banjo tradition of Fred van Eps and Ernest Jones, except on the tenor banjo rather than the older five string classic instrument. As a professional piano technician he is accustomed to precision, which shows in all he does. A show-stopper by himself, Mazzy soars still higher and gains yet more freedom for himself when someone is playing a bass line beneath him. Enter Eli Newberger, as unusual a tuba player as Mazzy is banjoist. Tubas came late to classic jazz and their role was limited to repetitious oompahs. Not Eli. Grounded in piano playing and be-bop, Eli conceived a new, more complex role for the tuba. Its hallmarks: string bass-like lines, the highlighting of unusual chords, and an aggressive playfulness that is akin to an elephant performing on the balance beam. Enter "Big Joe" Muranyi, the finest jazz clarinetist of his generation. Long a fixture of the New York scene, Muranyi''s musical roots trace back through Martin''s Ferry, West Virginia, to his parents'' native Hungary, point zero of one of Europe''s most lyrical traditions in music and most intricate schools of reed playing. Best known for his years with Louis Armstrong''s All-Stars, Muranyi honed his style in smaller groups on the minuscule bandstand at Nick''s in the Village - the perfect preparation for the Mazzy-Newberger team. Taken together, this heady mix of eclecticism, virtuosity, and lyricism imparts to the M ''N'' M Trio a quality that is exciting, exceedingly pleasant and wonderfully fresh. No wonder the French critic exploded with "Bravo les MNM! Pourquoi pas les ''MMM'' (Master-Master-Master)?" Well spoken! - S. Frederick Starr www.elinewberger.com

Westward Expansion: Crash Course US History #24
In which John Green teaches you about the Wild, Wild, West, which as it turns out, wasn't as wild as it seemed in the movies. When we think of the western expansion of the United States in the 19th century, we're conditioned to imagine the loner. The self-reliant, unattached cowpoke roaming the prairie in search of wandering calves, or the half-addled prospector who has broken from reality thanks to the solitude of his single-minded quest for gold dust. While there may be a grain of truth to these classic Hollywood stereotypes, it isn't a very big grain of truth. Many of the pioneers who settled the west were family groups. Many were immigrants. Many were major corporations. The big losers in the westward migration were Native Americans, who were killed or moved onto reservations. Not cool, American pioneers. Support CrashCourse on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/crashcourse Hey teachers and students - Check out CommonLit's free collection of reading passages and curriculum resources to learn more about the events of this episode. America’s Westward expansion was fueled by both Manifest Destiny and a desire to grow the nation and its resources — though at a cost: https://www.commonlit.org/texts/manifest-destiny As Americans continued to stream West on the name of Manifest Destiny, American Indians saw their lives changed forever as they moved from practising resistance to lives on reservations: https://www.commonlit.org/texts/from-resistance-to-reservations

The state of Louisiana does not have an actual legal construct called "martial law," but instead something quite like it: a state of public health emergency. The martial law concept in the United States is closely tied with the right of habeas corpus, which is in essence the right to a hearing on lawful imprisonment, or more broadly, the supervision of law enforcement by the judiciary. The ability to suspend habeas corpus is often equated with martial law. Article 1, Section 9 of the US Constitution states, "The Privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion the public Safety may require it." American lawmakers have stated on the record that, in their opinion, Section 1031 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 legalizes or authorizes martial law in the United States. Senator Mark Udall stated "These provisions raise serious questions as to who we are as a society and what our Constitution seeks to protect...Section 1031 essentially repeals the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 by authorizing the U.S. military to perform law enforcement functions on American soil. civil war through out United States history are several examples of the imposition of martial law aside from that during the Civil War. There have been many instances of the use of the military within the borders of the United States, The distinction must be made as clear as that between martial law and military justice Following the earthquake of 1906, the troops stationed in the Presidio were pressed into martial law service. Guards were posted throughout the city, and all dynamite was confiscated. Troops were ordered to shoot looters. The West Virginia Coal Wars (1920-1921), martial law was declared on the state of West Virginia. Army officer removed the constitution did not allow assembly of any kind. If his soldiers found any miners, they immediately took them and imprisoned them. The jails filled up so quickly miners were arrested, jailed, and released without any sort of trial. the military occupation and "veritable military dictatorship" (Governor Cornwell) of the army officer ended. Martial law is the imposition of military rule by military authorities over designated regions on an emergency basis. In full-scale martial law, the highest-ranking military officer would take over, or be installed, as the military governor or as head of the government, thus removing all power from the previous executive, legislative, and judicial branches of government. Martial law may be declared in cases of major natural disasters, however most countries use a different legal construct, such as a state of emergency. .

The Mighty Mo' is the 3rd segment produced in the series. Waterways Rivers unite and divide countries. They are liquid barriers and flowing highways. In some places they run through countries; in others, they become the boundaries between nations. Except for Australia and Antarctica, continents have great rivers that determine how and where people live. The Congo, Niger, and Nile shape African topography and culture. The Rhine and Danube doBig Bend Dam was constructed under the Pick- Sloan Plan for development of the Missouri River Basin. Construction on the project began in 1959 and closure of the embankment occurred in July 1963. Photo courtesy The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. the same for Europe; the Volga is synonymous with Russia. In South America the Amazon defines the continent, creating the huge rain forests that cover huge expanses, carrying everything from people to sediment to the ocean. Across Asia the Mekong and Yangtze affect commerce, and in India, the Ganges is a site for religious cleansing. The delta of the Tigris and Euphrates, in Iraq, has often been considered the "cradle of civilization." As long as there have been civilizations, people have been bridging, damming, channeling—using—rivers to make their lives easier. Of all the ways that rivers can be changed, dams alter the personality and flow of a river more than any other manmade structure. Whole towns have been moved or buried under water when large dams have been constructed. These gigantic lakes, reservoirs, are used for recreation and power generation. With dams, people control flow of the river. Few large rivers, those that consistently flow year round, have not been dammed. In South Dakota, alone, four dams block the Missouri River. A debate continues in the Pacific Northwest about whether to destroy old dams or not. Because they impede salmon migration, dams have been the scourge of fisherman, environmentalists, and Native American tribes. Water and rivers usually mean life. Like people, animals are drawn to rivers. Many of the world's wide variety of plants can be found along the banks of great rivers—most notably tropical rivers like the Amazon. As early explorers, like Lewis and Clark, traveled up and down big rivers into unknown reaches, they discovered dozens of new species along the banks. Though they can have an awesome destructive force when they flood, rivers regularly and normally flood as part of a natural cycle. As much as man tries to harness rivers, they still meander, changing their courses as if they have minds of their own. The longest waterway in the United States, and fourth longest in the world, is the Missouri-Mississippi system, running from the headwaters of the Missouri in Montana to Louisiana and the Gulf of Mexico—more than 3,800 miles. Technically, the Missouri River flows from the Rocky Mountains in the west to its confluence with the Mississippi River at St. Louis, Missouri, passing through Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, forming the border between Iowa and Nebraska and part of the border between Kansas and Missouri before bending east through the heart of the Show Me State.

What is CONVICT LEASE? What does CONVICT LEASE mean? CONVICT LEASE meaning & explanation
What is CONVICT LEASE? What does CONVICT LEASE mean? CONVICT LEASE meaning - CONVICT LEASE definition - CONVICT LEASE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Convict leasing was a system of penal labor practiced in the Southern United States. Convict leasing provided prisoner labor to private parties, such as plantation owners and corporations such as the Tennessee Coal and Iron Company. The lessee was responsible for feeding, clothing, and housing the prisoners. The state of Louisiana leased out convicts as early as 1844, but the system expanded all through the South with the emancipation of slaves at the end of the American Civil War in 1865. It could be lucrative for the states: in 1898 some 73% of Alabama's entire annual state revenue came from convict leasing. While northern states sometimes contracted for prison labor, the historian Alex Lichtenstein notes that, only in the South did the state entirely give up its control to the contractor; and only in the South did the physical "penitentiary" become virtually synonymous with the various private enterprises in which convicts labored. Corruption, lack of accountability, and racial violence resulted in "one of the harshest and most exploitative labor systems known in American history." African Americans, mostly adult males, due to “vigorous and selective enforcement of laws and discriminatory sentencing,” made up the vast majority—but not all—of the convicts leased. The writer Douglas A. Blackmon described the system: It was a form of bondage distinctly different from that of the antebellum South in that for most men, and the relatively few women drawn in, this slavery did not last a lifetime and did not automatically extend from one generation to the next. But it was nonetheless slavery – a system in which armies of free men, guilty of no crimes and entitled by law to freedom, were compelled to labor without compensation, were repeatedly bought and sold, and were forced to do the bidding of white masters through the regular application of extraordinary physical coercion. U.S. Steel is among American companies who have acknowledged using African-American leased convict labor. The practice peaked around 1880, was formally outlawed by the last state (Alabama) in 1928, and persisted in various forms until it was abolished by President Franklin D. Roosevelt via Francis Biddle's "Circular 3591" of December 12, 1941. Convict leasing in the United States began during the Reconstruction Period (1865–1877) after the end of the Civil War, when many southern legislatures were ruled by majority coalitions of blacks and Radical Republicans, and Union generals acted as military governors. Farmers and businessmen needed to find replacements for the labor force once their slaves had been freed. Some southern legislatures passed Black Codes to restrict free movement of blacks and force them into employment with whites. If convicted of vagrancy, blacks could be imprisoned, and they also received sentences for a variety of petty offenses. States began to lease convict labor to the plantations and other facilities seeking labor, as the freedmen were trying to withdraw and work for themselves. This provided the states with a new source of revenue during years when they were financially strapped, and lessees profited by the use of forced labor at below market rates. Essentially, both black legislators and whites in the criminal justice system colluded with private planters and other business owners to entrap, convict, and lease blacks as prison laborers. The constitutional basis for convict leasing is that the 1865 Thirteenth Amendment, while abolishing slavery and involuntary servitude generally, permits it as a punishment for crime. The criminologist Thorsten Sellin, in his book Slavery and the Penal System (1976), wrote that the sole aim of convict leasing “was financial profit to the lessees who exploited the labor of the prisoners to the fullest, and to the government which sold the convicts to the lessees.” The practice became widespread and was used to supply labor to farming, rail road, mining, and logging operations throughout the South.
