Why Louvre's Mona Lisa keeps a smile: Paris' cooling system
PARIS (AP) — The Mona Lisa may maintain her famously enigmatic smile because she benefits from one of Paris’ best-kept secrets: An underground cooling system that’s helped the Louvre cope with the sweltering heat that has broken temperature records across Europe. The little-known “urban cold” network snakes unsuspecting beneath Parisians’ feet at a depth of up to 30 meters (98 feet), pumping out icy water through 89 kilometers (55 miles) of labyrinthine pipes, which is used to chill the air in over 700 sites.

The time trial committed on Wednesday, early in the afternoon. By digging, minors fell on an area of the mine filled with water. A collapse caused the flood of the three coal wells with a depth of 60 meters.
The drama takes place in an artisanal mine, very dangerous.
"The minors dig a two meter diameter well, and continue to dig until we find coal", explained a metallurgical engineer, Guillermo Iglesias, on a Mexican radio. This type of infrastructure does not protect workers from collapses, unlike the protections that exist in an industrial mine, he added.

Warning: This story contains descriptions of sexual abuse. Faye Yager was unable to protect her young daughter from being sexually abused by her father, and she responded by dedicating her life to creating an underground network for women striving to shield their kids from such heinous cruelty—work that brought the issue of incestuous rape and molestation of children into the national spotlight, and ostensibly saved numerous girls from danger.
