Survival Capsule: Engineers make floating capsule to withstand natural disasters

A floating survival shelter, or ‘Red Capsule,’ can house 2-10 people for up to five days. Made from aircraft-grade aluminum, it protects occupants from a natural disaster, as well as sharp-object penetration, heat exposure, blunt-object impact, and rapid deceleration. The shelters are able to withstand tsunamis, tornadoes, hurricanes, and earthquakes when evacuation is not possible.

Insecure’s Yvonne Orji: 'I’m 33 years old and I’m a virgin'

Her role as Molly in HBO’s hit comedy has provided us with one of the most complex characters on TV. Here, she discusses the gender pay gap storyline, code switching and why her sexual status is no big deal‘You don’t realise that you’re impacting or influencing the culture,” says Yvonne Orji, shaking her head in wonder. “It’s a TV show – we’re just trying to entertain people.” But the Los Angeles-set HBO comedy Insecure – in which Orji stars as Molly Carter, a corporate lawyer with a tongue as sharp as her tailored wardrobe – has done much more than that, including inspiring audience members to call out inequalities. In an episode shown earlier this summer, Molly discovers that a white male colleague of the same position is paid significantly more. With incredible timing, the show’s second season began airing in the UK days after the BBC was forced to reveal the wages of its top stars, exposing a cavernous gender and ethnicity pay gap.“We got so many comments on Twitter, with people saying: ‘Yup, I’ve been there’ or, ‘I left my last job because of it’,” says 33-year-old Orji, when we speak via Skype from her Los Angeles home. “After watching that episode, one viewer went in to ask for more money, came back and said that she got a raise. It wasn’t as much as she asked for, but it was more than she was getting.” Continue reading...

Lawler: ACS-Based Household Growth Slowed Last Year: Homeownership Rate Estimate Up, But Barely

  • 0

From housing economist Tom Lawler: ACS-Based Household Growth Slowed Last Year: Homeownership Rate Estimate Up, But BarelyThe Census Bureau released the results of its 2016 American Community Survey, which provides a wide range of estimated statistics about people and housing. On the housing front, the ACS-based estimate of the number of occupied housing units (or households) for 2016 (yearly average) was 118,860,065, up just 651,815 from the estimate from the 2015 ACS. The ACS-based homeownership rate for 2016 was 63.1%, up just a tad from the 63.0% in 2015.The growth rate of nonfamily households outpaced the growth in family households last year, with the fastest growth coming in nonfamily households with two or more people. This growth in part reflected a sharp jump in roomers and boarders.ACS-Based Household Estimates20162015Change% ChangeTotal118,860,065118,208,250651,8150.55%Family77,785,96277,530,756255,2060.33%Nonfamily41,074,10340,677,494396,6090.98%  1-person33,254,19232,962,990291,2020.88%  2+-person7,819,9117,714,504105,4071.37%In terms of the composition of people in “family” households, last year there were relatively big gains in (1) the number of “adult” (18+ years old) children living with their parent(s); (2) the number of “other relatives;” and (3) the number of “nonrelatives” excluding the householder’s unmarried partner.Number of People in Family Householdsby Relationship to Householder, ACS20162015Change% ChangeTotal261,765,779260,613,7601,152,0190.44%Householder:77,785,96277,530,756255,2060.33%Spouse56,952,25356,681,711270,5420.48%Child:95,553,25195,198,175355,0760.37%  Under 1864,448,63864,499,542-50,904-0.08%  18+31,104,61330,698,633405,9801.32%Other Relatives23,949,69023,665,436284,2541.20%Nonrelatives:7,524,6237,537,682-13,059-0.17%  Unmarried Partner3,092,3573,205,347-112,990-3.53%  Other Nonrelatives4,432,2664,332,33599,9312.31%Before going further, I do need to qualify the table above. The 2015 ACS results did not incorporate the late 2016 downward revisions in population estimates, but the 2016 ACS results do reflect these revisions. As a result, the 2015 ACS results overstate the total resident US population by about 522 thousand. The 2015 ACS estimates for the number of households, however, would not have been impacted by the downward population revisions (if they had been known at the time), because ACS household estimates are (effectively) controlled to independent housing unit estimates. If the 2015 ACS results were adjusted to reflect the updated lower population estimates for that year, the result would be that both the average household size and the average family size (as estimated by the ACS) would be lowered for 2015. As a result, both the average household size and the average family size adjusted to reflect population revisions for 2015 increased last year.For “young” adults (18-34 years old), the % of young adults living with parents increased to 34.25% in 2016 from 34.11% in 2015, while the % of young adults living with other relatives rose to 13.30% in 2016 from 13.20% in 2015.The % of young adults who were either (1) a householder, (2) the spouse of a household, or (3) the unmarried partner of a householder declined to 32.95% in 2016 from 33.46% in 2015.As readers know, there are numerous and conflicting estimates of the number of and the growth of US households based on various surveys, and this “household conundrum,” while identified and for a brief bit “prioritized” by Census earlier this decade, has not gone away. However, the “latest” data from the CPS/ASEC, the CPS/HVS, and now the ACS all suggest that household growth as decelerated, for reasons that are not crystal clear but which cannot be explained by “cyclical” forces.I’ll have more on the ACS data later this month.

Labour’s members saved the party. Now give them the power they deserve | Owen Jones

A bottom-up renaissance has re-energised Labour. But we need to focus even more on campaigning, and switch more power to the grassrootsNew Labour was too often defined by its fear of the party’s members. They were, went the thinking, a delusional rabble, a hotbed of dangerously unelectable ideas. They had to be neutralised, penned in, institutionally ostracised, reduced to an army of leaflet deliverers and voter ID collectors. Labour’s annual conference was stripped of many of its powers and functions, relegated to a US-style political rally peppered with sharp-suited corporate lobbyists. Parliamentary selections were stitched up: the role of unions in choosing candidates was stripped back, favoured special advisers were parachuted into safe seats, and dangerous lefties – like socialist Labour councillor Liz Davies – were forbidden from standing as MPs. Machine politics was deployed to try to prevent undesirables such as Ken Livingstone standing as London mayor and Rhodri Morgan as Wales’s first secretary. Labour’s new direction was enshrined in its constitution, shredding the old Clause IV’s commitment to public ownership.New Labour became a Year Zero, defined against the party’s undesirable past, in which everything from the old social democratic right to Bennism was thrown into a trashcan labelled “Old Labour”. Those expressing even mild left-of-centre ideas were disparaged as “Trots”. The leadership relished publicly defining itself against the grassroots, inviting members to stomach everything from tuition fees to school academies. Tony Blair himself sometimes seemed to profess more continuity with Thatcher’s era than his own party’s traditions. “I always thought my job was to build on some of the things she had done rather than reverse them,” as he put it when Thatcher died. This was “a new political force”, boasted Peter Mandelson. The BBC in 2004 felt comfortable baldly stating: “Tony Blair did not change the Labour party – he created an entirely new party.” Continue reading...

BP-led group extends Azeri oil 'contract of the century'

BAKU/LONDON (Reuters) - BP (BP.L) and Azerbaijan agreed on Thursday to extend into 2050 a contract to develop the ex-Soviet state's biggest oilfield cluster, a deal dubbed "the contract of the century" when first signed in 1994. Under the new production sharing agreement, the Azeri state energy company SOCAR will increase its share to 25 percent from 11.65 percent, while BP's stake declines to 30.37 percent from 35.8 percent. The new contract secures large investment in Azerbaijan's oil sector for decades and a one-off bonus of $3.6 billion (£2.73 billion) for the government, a welcome boost to a nation that has struggled with a sharp drop in oil prices in the past three years.
