Deluged Texas Braces for More Rain, and Years of Recovery

In San Antonio, sprawling vacant warehouses had been turn into shelters that could hold more than 4,100 evacuees.How many residents had fled to hotels or the homes of friends or relatives was anyone’s guess.The City of Houston put out a call for doctors, nurses and social workers to go to the George R. Brown Convention Center, where thousands of people took shelter.At a school gym in San Antonio that had become a shelter for hundreds, people watched television coverage and searched social media feeds in hopes of collecting clues about the homes and neighbors they left behind. They dialed and redialed phone numbers that went straight to voice mail, or just rang, unanswered.Melanie Steele, 43, said she and her husband evacuated their home along a bayou in Houston’s Linkwood neighborhood with little more than their dog, Baxter, and a baggie of dog food. On Sunday night, she received an alert on her phone that the alarm had gone off in the house.“I’m assuming that means the water is pushing in” and that all she has is lost, she said as she sat in hotel room in Houston, hugging Baxter. “That literally put me into a tailspin.”GraphicMaps: Harvey’s Destructive Path Through TexasMaps and animated satellite imagery show the scale and reach of the storm.OPEN GraphicEight oil refineries, with about one-eighth of the nation’s refining capacity, shut down because of the storm, which could affect gas prices around the country. Both of Houston’s airports were closed, and hundreds of passengers were stranded.Hurricane Harvey made landfall on Friday night as a Category 4, the most powerful storm to strike the United States in more than a decade, and though it has been downgraded to a tropical storm, it lingered over the coastal region.By Monday, it had swamped the Houston region with more than 30 inches of rain in some places, and forecasters warned that the totals in some areas could top 50 inches before the storm moves on some time later this week.It is expected to move to the northeast, toward far eastern Texas and Louisiana, and bands of heavy rain were already lashing those regions. In New Orleans, which faced flooding earlier this month after heavy rains overwhelmed its drainage system, news that the far-flung storm could bring up to 10 inches of rain raised tension levels […]

At a Luxury Complex in India, the Maids and the Madams Go to War

India’s vast disparity between rich and poor means members of a newly moneyed class are able to hire domestic help for low pay, with no contracts and few legal obligations.Continue reading the main storyThough they may resent their treatment, maids are typically afraid to lose their jobs, and of the “pull their employers may have with the authorities,” said Tripti Lahiri, the author of “Maid in India: Stories of Inequality and Opportunity Inside Our Homes.”Conflicts between domestic workers and employers are a regular feature of Indian crime logs, but mass violence is almost unheard-of, Ms. Lahiri said. That is partly because in Indian cities, many maids live in their employers’ homes, giving them little opportunity to build networks and compare notes.That has changed, however, as luxury high-rises proliferated in farmlands on the outskirts of New Delhi, and slum neighborhoods appeared beside them, in what Ms. Lahiri called “a perfect setup for an us vs. them clash.”In the case of Harshu Sethi and her maid, Johra Bibi, in Noida on Wednesday, the clash was Alfred Hitchcock-grade, awakening subterranean anxieties about the true relationship between the rich and the poor.On Tuesday, Ms. Sethi accused Ms. Bibi of stealing 17,000 rupees, or about $265, from a safe in her apartment. She said Ms. Bibi had admitted taking 10,000 rupees in back wages, and then disappeared […]

This Paint Could Change The Face Of Sustainable Design

For Architectural Digest, by Carrie Hojnicki. Graphene, and its somewhat mythical categorization as one of the strongest materials in the world, has long been the stuff of sustainable design dreams. Thanks to Spanish producer Graphenstone, these dreams are becoming a reality with the introduction of the world’s first Graphene paint. Thanks to Spanish producer Graphenstone, these dreams are becoming a reality with the introduction of the world’s first Graphene paint. First reported by Dezeen, who spoke with Graphene director Patrick Folkes, the introduction of Graphene paint, which has already been used successfully? on several commercial and restoration projects in Europe, will have enormous implications for energy-saving in the heating and cooling of homes because it effectively acts as a source of sustainable heat energy. “When used on interior wall surfaces, rather than heat being radiated through the walls, the graphene within the paint captures the heat,” Folkes explained to Dezeen. “It then conducts the heat through the paint and across the whole Graphenstone-painted surface of interior walls. This enhances the insulation measures used in buildings by slowing heat conduction through walls and out of buildings.” As if that weren’t enough for the eco-friendly consumer, the new paint will also be composed of 98 percent pure lime — a resource endemic to Graphenstone’s Spanish roots — whose ability to absorb carbon dioxide can purify ambient air. The paint, distributed through the Graphene Company, is available in indoor and outdoor varieties […]
