Also known as stack or haystack; A large and carefully built heap of loose hay or straw. Traditionally, it was thatched on top to keep out the rain.
Until the late 1940s free-standing ricks were the universal method of storing hay or straw, and the method is still used on some small farms. Considerable skill is required to achieve a regular shape and to thatch the rick effectively. The introduction of baling machinery made the rick obsolete, and thatch has been largely replaced by plastic sheeting.

Intermediate zone of the Earth between the crust and the core, accounting for 82% of the Earth's volume. It is thought to consist of silicate minerals such as olivine.
The mantle is subdivided into three shells: the upper mantle that extends to 400 km/250 mi beneath the surface; the transition zone 400–650 km/250–400 mi down; and the lower mantle 650–2,900 km/400–1,800 mi down.
It mantle is separated from the crust by the Mohorovicic discontinuity, and from the core by the Gutenberg discontinuity. The patterns of seismic waves passing through it show that its uppermost as well as its lower layers are solid.
However, from 72 km/45 mi to 250 km/155 mi in depth is a zone through which seismic waves pass more slowly (the “low-velocity zone”). The inference is that materials in this zone are close to their melting points and they are partly molten. The low-velocity zone is considered the asthenosphere on which the solid lithosphere rides.

Trade name of the Anglo-Dutch oil-development and exploration concern Royal Dutch/Shell Group, one of the world's biggest companies, formed 1907.
Shell is the world's largest oil and gas producer, with the largest oil reserves, and is responsible for 5% of the world's oil and gas production. It has 2,000 operating companies worldwide. It is also the world's largest retailer, with (1994) 40,000 gasoline stations in 100 countries. Its sales turnover in 1992 amounted to more than the gross national product of any country except the 23 richest.
The company abandoned plans to dump a disused oil-storage platform in the north Atlantic Ocean June 1995 in the face of widespread protests spearheaded by the environmentalist group Greenpeace.
The business originated in the early 19th century with a curio shop in E London that sold shell ornaments; by 1830 the dealer, Marcus Samuel, had built up an international trade in copra and oriental artifacts. From 1897 the company dealt in oil and kerosene (paraffin oil) and was consolidated as the Shell Transport and Trading Company, amalgamating with the Royal Dutch Petroleum Company 1907.
