These real-life Rosie the Riveters changed the face of labor

Vintage photos from the library of congress capture a time when the country ran on womanpower

The Rosies of WWII are one of the coolest aspects of American history. I fanboy a little whenever I see photos or documentaries about them.

Mine Kafon by Massoud Hassani

Hassani, a product designer from Afganistan, build (by hand) a wind-powered device that trips land mines as it rolls across the ground. It is made using bamboo and biodegradable products.

Many of these mines are active and near populated areas in countries like Afganistan and are hard to remove. The UN says that one mine clearance specialist is killed, and two injured, for every 5,000 mines cleared.

Hassani’s cheap and easy to make method has been achieving great results.

Professional Awkwardness

Working alone with a coworker today, we discovered that we are both applying for the same job. Both of us need it, and both are qualified. It made for interesting conversation!

I’m working a holiday shift today, and I am exhausted! Who knew that Labor Day would generate so much circulation for the library, even when we’re closed?
