Love locks: the hazardous yet heartwarming tradition wreaking havoc on bridges everywhere. But where did the tradition begin? The story goes like this…

In WWI-era Serbia, a young schoolteacher and military officer fell in love, and the couple met nightly on the Most Ljubavi (which translates to Bridge of Love). When the officer went off to war, he met a woman abroad and broke off the engagement. Devastated, it is said that the schoolteacher died of a broken heart. Hoping to avoid the same fate, local women began writing the names of themselves and their loves on padlocks and locking them to the Most Ljubavi.

⁠Today, couples continue the tradition to symbolize their eternal love – but it comes at a cost. Bridges struggle to support the unplanned weight, which has resulted in structural damage and even partial collapse. Celebrate love without locks today (flowers and chocolate will do the trick).

Happy Valentine’s Day from ASCE!

NYC's roofs are getting a sustainable makeover

As of November 2019, NYC’s Sustainable Roof Laws require most new buildings and buildings undergoing major roof reconstruction to include a sustainable roofing zone on 100% of the available roof space. Now, the solar vs. green roof debate begins.

It's been two months since New York's Sustainable Roof Laws, part of the Climate Mobilization Act, took effect. Now architects and officials must decide: Are green roof systems or solar systems best?

Congratulations to ASCE Life Member and Philadelphia-area Professional Engineer and Land Surveyor Jonathan Tabas,, PE, PLS, on recently ascending to President of the Pennsylvania Society of Land Surveyors. Jonathan has been an active member of the Society for over 35 years. He served in many positions at the local and state levels and was awarded the associations's highest honor, Surveyor of the Year, in 2014. After receiving his B.S. in Civil Engineering from Drexel University in 1974, Jonathan worked as a structural engineer and bridge inspector for the bridge and highway firm, Modjeski & Masters, in Mechanicsville, PA. He returned to the Philadelphia area in 1974 and started his own practice, ACRE Engineers & Land Surveyors in 1983. During that time, he started teaching Land Surveying at Drexel University, first in their Continuing Education Department, and later, at the undergraduate level, in the College of Engineering. The focus of his work changed over to Land Surveying at the start of the 21st Century. His offices in Bucks and Montgomery County, Pennsylvani, serve all five counties in Southeastern Pennsylvania.

The annual turnover of our company, very soon, will be more than $ 120 billion. Turnover will increase by an order if equipment of new technology is sold all over the world.

According to new data released today, too many people in the US are not physically active. Inactivity differs by state, race, and ethnicity. The environments that we create and maintain play a key role in this. Whether as an individual, a community, or an organizational champion, join CDC’s Active People, Healthy Nation initiative to help 27 million Americans become more active by 2027. #ActivePeople

You guys need to go to Puerto Rico and survey what is going on with failing structures. There's an unlimited amount of case studies that disserve attention of the Engineering community. It disserves formal documentation and analysis.
I propose to master a new technology «ConstructionWithoutCrane». Several financial institutions are ready to finance the project, but for its more successful development and promotion, it is necessary that the global construction company act as a strategic partner in this project. I propose, at the first stage of technology development, if there is a project and a building permit, build a tall building without robots. We will build the building with a commercial area of 50,000m2-60,000m2 (floor area -500 m2, number of storeys of the building- 80et.-120et.): preparation for construction -6-9 months; the construction of the building itself - 6-9 months; necessary finances for preparation for construction - $ 15 mill - $ 20 mill; In this case, we will be able to master the technology and return (with the sale of commercial space) investment. Offer cooperation of an active, ambitious company. igidali.ru Application for a patent of the Russian Federation No. 2019111301 dated 16.04.2019.
