Rolling Coal: From Anti-Environmentalists in the U.S. to the ISIS in the Middle East
If you missed the media frenzy earlier this summer, “rolling coal" is the term for a rising trend among anti-environmentalist conservatives in the U.S. who alter their truck engines to emit massive black clouds of exhaust, often from smoke stack-like attachments. Owners of coal rolling trucks, who often hail from regions historically associating with coal production, see the trend as a very direct statement against sustainability—and its stereotypically liberal ties. A seller of smoke stack kits for trucks describes rolling coal as a “a way of giving them [liberals] the finger. You want clean air and a tiny carbon footprint? Well, screw you.” Now, in a bizarre cultural crossover, Vice News has captured members of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), a hardline Sunni jihadist group that formerly had ties to al Qaeda, “rolling coal” in a military tank. The group, intending to place Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as the leader of a restored caliphate, began making shockingly rapid advances across Iraq and Syria in June. Armed with cash and US weapons seized during its advances in Iraq, and exploiting control over critical water and energy supplies, the ISIS continues to exercise a stranglehold over the region.

    Walter Munk Traces the Origins of Waves

    Physical oceanographer Dr. Walter Munk is responsible for a set of astonishing experiments conducted in the 1950s and 60s determining the origin of waves. Using an equation to plot a wave’s trajectory backward in time, he came upon a startling discovery: the swells he saw hitting beaches in Mexico began almost 9,000 miles away near Antarctica. To substantiate these findings, he traced the path and decay of waves as they propagated northward from stations on islands and at sea along a great circle from New Zealand to Alaska. This project was documented as part of the Lamont-Columbia Marine Science Film Series in “Waves Across the Pacific,” where the 355-foot-long RP FLIP (FLoating Instrument Platform), an open ocean research platform owned by the U.S. Office of Naval Research and operated by the Marine Physical Laboratory of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, can be seen pitching backward 90°. Though it resembles a capsized ship, the RP FLIP is actually very stable because it derives most of its buoyancy from water at depths below the influence of surface waves

    School Library

    Gando • Burkina Faso

    By Kéré architecture

    The library’s ceiling is an innovative feature that makes good use of local technology. Clay pots, traditionally made by the women of the village, were brought to the site and cut, so as to be open at both the top and bottom. The pots were then cast into the concrete ceiling to create holes for light and ventilation.
