Nearly everyone feels stressed-out at some point, but there seem to be certain cities where citizens cope better than others, so suggests WalletHub in a new study.Let’s take a peek at the stress-related data that WalletHub parsed. In the United States, stress affects upwards of 100 million people, it reports. Money fronts the list of causes, with work, family, and relationships bringing up the rear. And speaking of money and work, workplace-related stress alone costs society over $300 billion annually, according to the report. So it’s little wonder that finding a Zen-like zone to call home is a great idea for many reasons.To pinpoint the places where Americans deal best with stress, WalletHub compared 182 cities across four dimensions: work stress, financial stress, family stress, and health and safety stress. It then analyzed those dimensions across 37 relevant metrics spanning from average weekly work hours to debt load, divorce, and suicide rates, to name a few. Each metric was graded on a 100-point scale, with a score of 100 representing the highest levels of stress.The least-stressed city in the nation, according to WalletHub: Fremont, California, with a total score of 25.93 on the stress scale. Rounding out the top 10 are Bismarck, North Dakota, charting a 26.6, followed by Sioux Falls, South Dakota (28.16); Overland Park, Kansas (29.66); South Burlington, Vermont (30.15); Scottsdale, Arizona (30.28); Irvine, California (30.52); San Jose, California (31.88); Madison, Wisconsin (32.1); and Lincoln, Nebraska (32.15).On the contrary, the city topping out as the most stressed-out on WalletHub’s ranking: Detroit, Michigan, which garnered a total score of 63.53. Next comes Newark, New Jersey, with a 62.8, trailed by Cleveland, Ohio (60.81); Birmingham, Alabama (58.03); Toledo, Ohio (57.42); Baltimore, Maryland (56.94); Wilmington, Delaware (55.25); Milwaukee, Wisconsin (55.02); Gulfport, Mississippi (54.82); and St. Louis, Missouri (53.57).

Smart Robot Containers to Carry Aquaculture Products

first_imgzoom A group of Norwegian graduates have developed smart “robot containers” with cooling systems that can sail to ports without any human interaction, classification society DNV GL informed.The graduates developed SEAtrue, a supply chain for offshore distribution of aquaculture products. The consumer application TraceEat sends information about consumer preferences to the digital platform Veracity, which enables best possible use of resources. The seafood is transported in autonomous smart “robot containers” which employ sophisticated cooling techniques to extend shelf life.The self-propelled containers are released from the processing vessel and either positions itself for pick up by a designated container ship or sails directly to a nearby port. That way, transportation by sea becomes more effective and efficient.“SEAtrue is a cutting-edge supply chain system that allows for optimal distribution and lower emissions. Moreover, it adjusts production to meet demand and thereby enhance a sustainable aquaculture industry,” project manager Ole Johan Lønnum, a marine technology graduate at NTNU, said.Presented at DNV GL’s Høvik headquarter, the solution “can revolutionise production and distribution of aquaculture products,” the classification society said.last_img read more
