Storm winds could make Surfside building structure breakdown further, underlying architect cautions

Storm winds could make Surfside building structure breakdown further, underlying architect cautions

The expected effect of storm twists on the hunt and-salvage tasks at the fell Surfside, Florida townhouse could make the structure breakdown further, underlying architect Richard Slider cautioned Friday.

"At the point when wind gets affected upon this, in the event that it goes to the space, clearly, that adds another degree of effect and conceivably more noteworthy capacity for the construction to fall further." Elsa filled in the Caribbean to turn into the season's first storm. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis raised concerns Friday that the tempest could strike South Florida and take steps to end salvage tasks and co...

Kentucky is the latest state to offer hefty return-to-work cash incentives, as the economy begins to bounce back from the COVID-19 shock. Gov. Andy Beshear announced earlier this week a plan to pay up to 15,000 Kentuckians on unemployment insurance a $1,500 bonus for rejoining the workforce by the end of July.

The legal struggle of defining male rape in Bangladesh

There is a dilemma in Bangladesh’s existing legal system in ensuring justice for male rape victims Amir (not his real name) trembled with fear every time he saw his 18-year-old madrasa teacher Kefayet. Parents of the eight-year-old had no clue why their son reacted in that “particular way” every time Kefayet was around. They found it quite difficult to process the unwillingness of their son to not go back to the madrasa after returning home due to sickness. Despite all the obvious warning signs, all they heard were “excuses” and failed to realize Amir’s desperate cry for help. The sight of Kefayet standing there to welcome Amir and his parents as they dropped him off to his madrasa only brought sheer horror and helplessness to the eight-year-old. This time, Amir’s parents coul...
