The dream of the techno-utopian workplace is dead. Remote work proved that digitizing the workplace isn't liberating, it's a company-controlled nightmare.

Marianne Ayala/Insider When the pandemic hit, companies embraced remote work, especially as productivity began to increase.

An "interstate water system" could fix the West's water woes

The U.S. West suffers from severe — and worsening — water shortages.America does not have a water supply problem; it has a water distribution problem.We should build water pipelines, akin to the Interstate Highway System. California's water woes are severe and worsening. A second dry year in a row has diminished the state's water supply, and almost three-quarters of the state is in "extreme" or "exceptional" drought, the two highest categories. With the rainy season over and a hot, dry summer ...

Colonial Country Club: Profile Of Hogan’s Alley, Home Of The Horrible Horseshoe

(CBS DFW) — Colonial Country Club, Fort Worth, Texas’s gem of a course, holds a distinct honor. It hosts the longest-running PGA Tour event to take place at the same site, majors aside.

The event, which changed its name to the Charles Schwab Challenge two years ago, dates back 75 years. In 1946, Ben Hogan shot 1-under par to win the first by one stroke. Hogan triumphed fi...

What makes some oysters more resilient than others?

Louisiana oysters from the Gulf of Mexico may experience some of the lowest salinity in the world due to the influx of fresh water from the Mississippi River. In addition, increased rainfall and large-scale river diversions for coastal protection will bring more fresh water that does not bode well for the eastern oyster. New research published this week reveals new information on why some oysters may be more resilient to freshwater than others.

Memphis bridge's design puts it at future risk

I'm an engineer who was part of the team that worked from 2015 to 2017 on developing a system to monitor the seismic performance of the Hernando de Soto Bridge that carries Interstate 40 across the Mississippi River at Memphis. When I first learned from the media last week that the six-lane bridge was closed due to a crack, my initial thought was that it was likely a minor fatigue crack in its initial stages. I assumed it was like most of the cracks I have seen in many of the bridges/steel struc...
