Men of Steel in Riga [20 May 2016|03:09pm]

Steel business was good, and in September 1903, Brearley’s old employer, Thomas Firth & Sons, bought a steelmaking plant in Riga—Russia’s second largest port, on the Baltic Sea—in order to produce steel for the massive Russian market without having to pay export tariffs. On Moorwood’s recommendation, Brearley was hired to be the chemist. Arthur Brearley would join them too, probably on his brother’s recommendation. Moorwood would be the general manager. Together Brearley and Moorwood traveled there in January 1904, in the dead of winter. http://nautil.us/issue/36/aging/the-father-of-modern-metal

"God created a world in which over 1 million crocodiles have each violently killed over 10 animals per year, for 200 million years. That's 2*10^15 animals, violently killed. 2 quadtrillion animals died. God doesn't care. Why should I? There is no good or evil. There is only power, and those too weak to seek it."
