Package couriers face a rising threat from Amazon — which is also one of their biggest customers — as the online giant has begun expanding its own delivery capabilities by leasing aircraft and hiring independent contractors to establish a ground-delivery network. Online sales now make up about 15 percent of U.S. retail, and are growing at three times the pace of traditional brick-and-mortar.

A diverse power supply delivers reliable electricity | The Seattle Times
Every two years, Columbia Generating Station nuclear power plant goes offline for a planned refueling period. During those few weeks, about a third of the plant’s 764 nuclear fuel assemblies are replaced, having produced power in the reactor for six years. Several months before shutting down, the new fuel is delivered by truck, inspected and staged for installation in the reactor building.
