          Gusting Southwest Kansas Winds Knock Down Fences, Set Dogs Loose, Pack Animal Shelters      Comment   Translate Page      
Wind scrapes across the plains of southwest Kansas like few places in the country. It drives a booming new industry of turbines that feeds electricity across the region. But at times, the wind gets out of hand. This week, it plowed across the landscape, causing trucks to swerve on highways, kicking up dust clouds and freeing family pets by knocking down fences. With gusts hitting 55 mph, the National Weather Service issued several warnings for the region this week. Ray Burgert, a meteorologist for the agency, told people traveling in SUVs and campers to take special care. Such winds can take out semi-trailer trucks . The winds also triggered an elevated wildfire risk across the high plains. “We discourage that outdoor burning, especially with these winds,” Burgert said. “It’s easy for fires to escape control and containment can be difficult.” High winds also strained southwest Kansas animal shelters. Dogs often escape during strong storms that topple fences. Finney County Humane

Starting in the Southwest and then spreading to the Great Lakes, wind and snow have been your daily companions, and many of you have lost power.

DAVID ROTH: Which actually was the cause of a lot of the mischief. SHAPIRO: David Roth is with the National Weather Service. He says although the system was not as bad as the March storm, the sudden drop in air pressure was severe. ROTH: They recorded wind gusts across West Texas as high as 78 miles an hour. Last I heard, there were over 20 wildfires that have been caused by the system.

Hi Possemo, quite honestly I’m not that of a tech wizard. I figured out some stuff thanks to Goodweather forcing me, some of which was posted previously, but where exactly to adjust that typo is currently beyond my comprehension of this application.

Could you send me an adjusted version and send it, that would be grand.
I read that you meanwhile stumbled on the major problem, shame that can’t be solved within Ctrlr, but it ought to be possible as it is with other apps.

The Singular Fortean Society recently reported the following account:

Kane Adams with Fox Valley Ghost Hunters contacted the Singular Fortean Society on Friday to alert them to a bizarre experience he’d had the night before at about 1 a.m.

According to a social media post describing the experience:

So, last night while driving semi, [the weather] was sleet mixture [and it was] about 34 degrees [in temperature]…close to Wittenberg I got freaked out...it was dark outside. I was coming down one of the off ramps to stop for a soda. Something fell out of the sky that was really odd and I can't quite get the image out of my mind.

First off let me say it wasn't a bird or a bat but this thing hit my window and mostly splattered on it. I saw it plain as day stuck to my window. I describe it as a small faerie if you believe in faeries, or possibly, I crap you not, a miniature mothman. It had small wings, [and] again, it wasn't a bat in the snow. It had long stretched out legs that came down below its body and had arms and fingers.

I was wide awake and not drowsy. I was going to take a picture but it slid off the window leaving this massive gooey stain on my window which took several attempts with washer fluid to clean up off the window. I remember it was all black and I didn't see any eyes.

I was overwhelmed by the long legs and arms with small fingers. Those that know me and my team know we don't post false info or tell tales on this site that are not true. I can tell you no trees were overhanging the hwy and no bugs were out in this weather and the stain it left was so intense that it smeared the whole window. I also know what a flying squirrel looks like and it was not that either. It's still imprinted in my eyes.

Size wise 8 inches high by 5 inches wide with wings slightly wider.

Investigator Tobias Wayland was able to speak with Adams via Facebook post and Messenger.

"The wings were the same color as the body. It seemed to have separation in the wings like maybe veins or arteries or bones," Adams said. "Considering the wings were kind of mashed on the windshield it was hard to tell [its wingspan], the body was about four inches with the wings going out further, say, about another four inches per side if it they were not squashed."

Adams said he would have liked to get a photograph, but too many factors aligned to prevent it.

"I was in Shawano County on glare ice and rain in a semi, and not allowed to be on my phone," he said.

It was these same conditions that prevented him from stopping to look for a body.

"I was in a 80,000 pound semi," Adams explained. "I can't just stop and turn around in a sleet storm."

Adams’ post elicited stories from others with similar experiences.

"I saw something at 15 and my friend who was with me saw it as well. We both can remember the moment clearly to this day...and it's been 34 years since that day," commented one person.

"I had a similar [sighting] only smaller in mid-afternoon near Wausau," said another. "It left a real goo on the windshield. This was about 17 years ago and still etched in my memory. My son was like 12 years old at the time and riding with me. He did not see it, only the goo, and was perplexed that it was such an ugly shade of gray."

MD 0327 CONCERNING SEVERE POTENTIAL...WATCH POSSIBLE FOR EASTERN MISSISSIPPI...WESTERN AND CENTRAL ALABAMA
MD 0327 Image

Mesoscale Discussion 0327
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0504 PM CDT Sat Apr 13 2019

Areas affected...Eastern Mississippi...Western and Central Alabama

Concerning...Severe potential...Watch possible 

Valid 132204Z - 140030Z

Probability of Watch Issuance...40 percent

SUMMARY...A severe threat is expected to develop across eastern
Mississippi and western to central Alabama. Marginally severe wind
gusts and an isolated tornado threat will be the primary threats.
Weather watch issuance could be necessary across the region over the
next couple of hours.

DISCUSSION...The latest radar imagery shows a small cluster of
thunderstorms developing across west-central Alabama. This
convection is located along the northeastern edge of moderate
instability. The RAP is analyzing MLCAPE values across west-central
Alabama in the 1000 to 1500 J/kg range. In addition to the
instability, deep-layer shear is strong with the Birmingham WSR-88D
VWP showing about 60 kt of 0-6 km shear. The VWP also shows
gradually veering winds with height in the lowest 3 Km AGL with 0-3
Km storm relative helicity near 350 m2/s2. Discrete cells that
develop in this environment may have an isolated tornado threat.
Wind damage will also be possible with rotating storms. The threat
should remain isolated this afternoon but should increase as a
organized convective line approaches from the west early this
evening.

          Slideshow: Capital City Public Market Kicks Off its 25th Season      Comment   Translate Page      
If you missed the opening day, don't worry—the market and its ever-rotating cast of over 100 local vendors will be back next week. The Capital City Public Market must have done some serious work to appease the rain gods, because it couldn't have asked for better weather for the opening day of its 25th season. Extended families, clusters of friends, moms pushing strollers and dozens of dogs came out in force to celebrate the market's April 13 opening in the spring sunshine. For the first time, many of those shoppers spilled out of the yellow "Market Bee" school bus, which ferries people between CCPM and the relocated Boise Farmers Market, dropping groups in front of Main Street Station every 15 minutes. "It's really nice that it's free, and it's convenient to get there and back if you live close to one of the two markets. They're far enough apart that it's not really worth it to walk," said Will Voytovich, who had walked to the BFM with a friend, then hopped the Market Bee into downtown to stroll through CCPM, where artists, prepared food vendors, farmers and more were selling to the throng. If you missed the first day of shopping, which ran from 9:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m., don't worry—the market and its ever-rotating cast of over 100 local vendors will be back next week. Meanwhile, check out some of our favorite shots from opening day below. …

At least the bell is attached!

 It was a very productive day. The sun is so intermentant we take what we can. Today we did the following:
  • Reattached the locker lids with the new nylon hinges.
  • Wood puttied all the holes from the original cockpit hardware.
  • Hung the ships bell
  • Sorted and reorganized the the first aid kit. The new box is not as good as the old one for bulkhead mounting. 
In addition we have folding cup holders to mount, an idea of where the propulsion battery is going to go this season, and are ready for painting as soon as the weather cooperates. And with the truck out of the back we've shifted the vessel to allow mast raising in place In addition to all this I've decided I'm going to rewire the boat. The deadline is not so looming as it once once and we'll most certainly splash on time. Here's hoping the weather is good the next few days. 
 I keep meaning to film and take pictures but the truth is the projects I think will take days take minutes and it's far easier to simply get things done then figure out how to capture getting it done. I apolgize that the full DIY part of the blog is falling by the wayside but look for more visual content once we get on the water. Plans are afoot for some really cool work while we are actually sailing.

¡Cancelada! La primera carrera de Superbike en Assen se suspende por nieve#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F2019_04_14%2F238224

Álvaro Bautista llegaba a Assen después de haber conseguido su tercer triplete consecutivo tras el recital de MotorLand. En el circuito de los Países Bajos ha conseguido de nuevo la Superpole, aunque esta vez ha sido en parte por la buena fortuna.

Antes de acabar la sesión, Toprak Razgatlioglu y Ryuichi Kiyonari tuvieron sendos accidentes que provocaron la finalización anticipada de la misma con la bandera roja. Bautista pudo hacer su vuelta rápida con los neumáticos de clasificación al contrario que otros pilotos.

Mucho frío, en este caso, y pocas nueces

Rea

El talaverano conseguía así colocarse en la primera posición, el local Van Der Mark en segundo puesto y Reiterberger en tercer lugar. El máximo contrincante en el mundial del de Ducati, Jonathan Rea, conseguía la octava posición. Héctor Barberá, debutante en esta categoría y que sustituía al lesionado Tati Mercado, salía desde la 14º posición.

Bautista

A media hora de comenzar la primera carrera de Superbike en los Países Bajos empezó a nevar con fuerza, por lo que surgía la duda de si se retrasaría la carrera o se pasaría a otro día. Entre los mismos pilotos comentaban que si la pista estaba mojada era mejor, por su propia seguridad, cambiarla a otro día.

Durante la espera hemos visto cómo los pilotos intentaban calentarse con ropa de abrigo poniéndosela por encima de los monos. Incluso alguno de ellos aprovechaba para mantener el calor en las manos con los calentadores de las ruedas.

Después de un retraso de 20 minutos, las motos salieron a la parrilla y dieron la vuelta de reconocimiento. Cuando parecía que todo estaba preparado, empezó a llover intensamente de nuevo, lo que obligó a todos los equipos a empujar las motos a los boxes. Tras un rato, la lluvia volvió a convertirse en nieve. Incluso a Bautista le dio tiempo a recogerla y llevársela al box para demostrar ante la cámara lo que estaba pasando.

Finalmente, tras un retraso de 45 minutos del inicio de carrera que estaba previsto para las 14 horas, se ha cancelado. Ahora, estamos pendientes de conocer en qué fecha y a qué hora se correrá la primera carrera de Assen de Superbike.

          Long, snowy winters taking toll on Yellowstone elk      Comment   Translate Page      

BILLINGS – Two consecutive hard winters are weakening the health of Yellowstone’s northern elk herd.

An annual report detailing a March 17-19 aerial count was released last week showing the population was holding fairly steady at about 5,800, but calf-to-cow ratios have been low and many animals appeared to be in poor health.

“We are probably going to see a little bit of a decline,” said Karen Loveless, a Fish, Wildlife & Parks wildlife biologist based in Livingston, Montana, who helps conduct the counts.

Fewer calves

“Conditions in the Dome Mountain area were unusually severe, and we observed low ratios of calves (11.5 calves:100 cows) and yearling bulls (4.4 yearling bulls:100 cows),” Loveless wrote in a synopsis. “Conditions in Gardiner Basin north of YNP appeared to be less severe as compared to Dome Mountain and within (Yellowstone National Park). Calf ratios were higher (22.3 calves:100 cows) in Gardiner Basin however many elk appeared to be in poor condition in this area as well. This is the second consecutive year with calf ratios below the threshold of 20 calves per 100 cows considered necessary to maintain a stable population. It is likely that additional winter mortalities will occur into spring, further reducing overall numbers and recruitment.”

Hard winters can affect elk populations in a couple of ways. They can result in poor health of the animals, which kills them outright, often in the spring as green grass starts growing. A difficult winter can cause a pregnant cow to absorb its fetus. Calves that are born may get poor nutrition from their weakened mother’s milk.

Loveless said there’s no evidence that brucellosis, a disease that infects the Northern Range elk herd and can cause elk cows to abort, seems to have any population level impacts.

“Low calf numbers are to be expected when winters are this tough,” Loveless said.

Yearling bull numbers have also declined, down 42 percent from 2016.

Snowpack

Most of the Northern Range herd – 75% this winter – continues to migrate out of the park, a trend that has remained high since 2011. Typically, that migration to areas like the Gardiner Basin and Dome Mountain Wildlife Management Area is a trip to a place with less snow than they would encounter in the park. That wasn’t necessarily the case this winter.

About 2 feet of snow fell in mid- to late February in the Paradise Valley.

“It got slammed,” Loveless said. “It was more severe in Dome Mountain than anywhere else. So the elk are really low.”

Heavy snow pushed elk onto agricultural land where they are not welcomed by ranchers who want to keep the brucellosis-infected wildlife separated from their cattle to avoid infection.

“It was a really challenging winter for managing commingling,” Loveless said.

Under its management plan, FWP tries to keep livestock and elk separated, either by using herders to move the elk out of ag fields, by calling hunters to kill animals or issuing kill permits to landowners. With so much snow, Loveless said there was nowhere to push elk off of ag fields. What’s more, the elk were in such a weakened state that even shooting cracker shells at their feet didn’t prompt them to move, she said.

Trends

Last year’s elk survey showed significantly more animals – up about 2,200 animals from 2017. The theory was that elk that traditionally migrated to Wyoming from the park in the winter were blocked by early snow and instead were diverted to the Paradise Valley.

In talking with her counterpart at Wyoming Game and Fish in Cody, Loveless said the biologist did see more elk up high in bighorn sheep country this February.

“Maybe this year more stayed and last year they got pushed down,” Loveless said.

The total elk count in 2017 was about 5,300 animals. This year the count was 5,800. So the herd seems to be increasing if last year’s high count of 7,500 elk was a fluke.

One asterisk to the numbers is that in past years the government agencies that cooperate on counts make two flights – one by airplane and the other by helicopter. This year, because of the federal government shutdown, only one flight by helicopter was conducted. Helicopter flights, because the craft are more maneuverable and can hover, result in higher counts.

Hunting

Elk populations in the Gardiner area are the bread and butter for some local hunting outfitters. In 2016, FWP made regulation changes to try to boost the bull elk population, much to the chagrin of some locals.

Yet the changes seem to be working. The number of older brow-tined bulls is up from 93 to 114, a 22% increase in Hunting District 313. Inside the park, that number has increased from 339 to 410, or about 21%.

“We’re not seeing a decline in bulls, so in that respect it’s been successful,” Loveless said.

The ratio of bulls to cows isn’t great, though. “We observed a slight increase from 2.6 brow-tined bulls per 100 cows observed in 2016 to 3.4 in 2019, and a decrease in the proportion of 6-point and greater bulls from 44% to 27%,” Loveless wrote.

Hunter harvest numbers have not been calculated for this past season.

Looking back, “Since the hunting season structure was adjusted in 2016, we observed below average harvest of 103 bulls in 2016 when weather was mild, and above average harvest of 305 bulls in 2017 when severe weather resulted in an early elk migration out of the Park,” Loveless wrote. “Given the mild weather during the 2018 hunting season it is likely that harvest was more similar to 2016, and this may explain the slight increase in brow-tined bulls this year.”

Based on what this past season’s hunting success shows, FWP will decide whether or not to suggest a change in the hunting regulations. Hunters are sacrificing opportunity to help recover bull elk populations.

That may be helpful, based on one trend that is showing up.

“Below average yearling bull and calf recruitment this year is likely to result in lower numbers of brow-tined bulls being recruited into the population over the next two years,” Loveless wrote.

“It’s turned into a social question.”

          An upcoming Brontë Mistress      Comment   Translate Page      
Publishers Weekly reports a new and upcoming Brontë-related novel:
PW is first to report that, five days after receiving the manuscript, Atria’s Daniella Wexler preempted a debut historical novel, Brontë’s Mistress by Finola Austin, based on the true, heretofore untold story of Lydia Robinson and her affair with Branwell Brontë. According to the publisher, “the novel gives voice to the courageous, flawed, complex woman slandered in Elizabeth Gaskell’s The Life of Charlotte Brontë as the ‘wicked’ elder seductress who corrupted the young Brontë brother, driving him to an early grave and bringing on the downfall of the entire Brontë family.” Danielle Egan-Miller at Browne & Miller negotiated the deal for world English and audio rights.

Keighley News reports Easter activities at the Parsonage: 
We're really enjoying the spring sunshine at the moment, as are some early Easter visitors to the museum.
Some schools have already broken up for the Easter holidays, and as such the museum is bustling with visitors.
We’ve got free talks and walks through the holiday period so visitors can enjoy 20-minute talks at 2pm every day, on a range of subjects, depending on the specialist interest of our wonderful and knowledgeable museum assistants and volunteers.
You might get to hear about life and death in Haworth, learn about the Bronte servants, or the early years of the Brontë siblings. Each talk is unique!
On Wednesday April 24 instead of the talks we will be leading a guided walk up onto Penistone Hill (weather permitting!) to get a sense of the landscape which was so inspirational to the Bronte family.
And also on holiday Wednesdays we have our popular Wild Wednesday drop-in workshops. In the first workshop you’ll be able to make Easter bunny cards, and the second workshop continues the Easter theme with the opportunity to make beautiful Paper Easter Eggs – much healthier than chocolate ones!
All these activities are free with admission to the museum.
Spring also brings the return of our Late Night Thursdays, where you get to experience the museum after hours. These late nights occur on the third Thursday of every month, so our first this year is April 18 – just a few days before Charlotte Brontë’s 203rd birthday!
Visiting the Parsonage that evening will be characters who knew Charlotte well – Tabby, the Brontës’ faithful and long-serving housekeeper, and John Brown, the sexton and Branwell’s drinking partner – and they’ll be sharing their knowledge about life in the Parsonage with Charlotte and her sisters.
After 5.30pm admission is free to visitors who live in the BD22, BD21, and BD20 postcode areas and Thornton, birthplace of the Brontës. Last admission is 7pm.
Spring is also a fantastic time to experience our new audio experience, which features the poems of Emily Brontë set to music by The Unthanks.
The experience is free with admission to the museum – you simply pick up the audio equipment from the shop desk, where you’ll be given an easy-to-follow map, and then you head out in Emily’s footsteps up to Penistone Hill. You can book ahead via the website if you want to guarantee a particular time.
The reviews have been overwhelming positive, with plenty of visitors tweeting lovely comments, whilst The Guardian reviewer described it as ‘quite incredible’. High praise indeed!
And finally, we were all very excited last week when Frank Cottrell Boyce paid us a visit to discuss plans for the work he’ll be doing with us in the second half of the year. (Diane Fare)

Inspired by “punk edits” of Styles on the internet (fan edits where celebrities are photoshopped and covered with tattoos and piercings), Todd wrote a fanfiction where Styles wasn’t in a boy band but was a college bad boy who seduces—and eventually falls in love with—Tessa, an innocent freshman who lives in his dorm. She called the story After. “It was more along the lines of a modern-day Pride and Prejudice and Wuthering Heights than anything to do with the actual Harry Styles,” she says. (Jason Pham in StyleCaster)
Not that he's your typical bad boy, though, since he seems to have very literary tastes. Spotting a book on Tessa's shelf, he comments, "The Great Gatsby, that's a good book." He's also able to quote from Wuthering Heights and engage in a spirited classroom argument with Tessa, about Pride and Prejudice, in which the subtext is inescapable. (Frank Scheck in The Hollywood Reporter)

The world could transition entirely to cheap, safe renewable energy before 2050: Finnish study

Solar Panels

A study from the Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) and the Energy Watch Group (EWG) from Germany says a global transition to the exclusive use of renewable energy is possible before 2050. (iStock) 

A global transition to the exclusive use of renewable energy sources is not only possible but also cheaper and safer than reliance on fossil fuels and nuclear energy, according to a new study from the Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) and the Energy Watch Group (EWG) from Germany.

The study claims that the rapid development of renewable energy sources and energy storage technology will likely make it possible for the entire planet to reduce its CO2 emissions to zero even earlier than the current 2050 deadline.

The report is the first of its kind to suggest a cost-effective, all-inclusive, global roadmap to keep average global warming at 1.5 degrees Celsius. It is also the first planet-wide climate change resistance plan that suggests not using carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) techniques to mechanically remove CO2 from the atmosphere.

According to the model, in 2050 some 69 percent of the world’s energy would come from solar panels, 18 percent from wind power, 3 percent from hydropower systems and 6 percent from bioenergy.

Fossil fuels and nuclear power would not be needed at all. Cars, planes and ships would run on carbon-neutral synthetic fuels produced from hydrogen and carbon dioxide.

          McHenry County to face cold, snow Sunday      Comment   Translate Page      
McHenry County will face cold, snow and possible thunderstorms Sunday, according to the National Weather Service in Romeoville.

A significant storm system is expected to move into the area in the morning, bringing strong winds and snow, meteorologist Ben Deubelbeis said.

"There's an elevated snow risk on Sunday," he said. "We've got a deep area of low pressure lifting across the region. ... It's tracking to the south, and it's pulling in some pretty cold air here into the Midwest."

Deubelbeis said the county could get hit with a couple inches of snow, but the pavement may be warm enough to melt some of it.

He said Sunday's high will be 34 degrees.

"We can see accumulating snow even into early May," he said. "We've had a number of events in mid-April where we see 1 to 5 inches of snow in the area."

He said there also is the potential for an isolated thunderstorm Sunday morning.

He said Monday will be a bit warmer with a high in the upper 40s.

The View After a Long Day Spent my Saturday with people I never met, who spoke a language I barely understood. Not much time for "picture perfect" moments, the kind people like to share on Instagram. All I really did was just organize books move boxes of paper and clothes around. Working with half a dozen other perfect strangers to clean out two rooms in a matter of hours. As I sit here at home, I stare out at my window, The sky is clear (weather called for storms) The rosebush is teeming with dozens of blooms And I'm tired from a long day of working. But it's definitely been a day I'll never forget: the view of a cleaned out storage room of dozens of boxes of organized books and the feeling of a job well done.

<i>which, unfortunately, seems not to have been forthcoming. At all.</i> Yes, well, <i>Hell</i> and <i>help</i> differ in more than just a consonant. <i>Now I wonder what would have happened if they did… if I was any better on alternate history I would’ve probably done a TL on that.</i> See <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1812:_The_Rivers_of_War" rel="nofollow">Eric Flint's AH novel <i>1812: The Rivers of War</i></a>, in which (with a lot of help from Sam Houston) the Five Civilized Tribes voluntarily leave for the West in the 1810s instead of the 1830s with most of their wealth and power intact and form the Confederacy of the Arkansas. In this book and its sequel <i>1824: The Arkansas War</i>, a great many free blacks (both freed and born free) move to Arkansas, forming effectively a sixth tribe. John Brown also moves to Arkansas, where slavery is rapidly being declared illegal, and so do lots of Europeans who prefer warmer weather than the North but don't care to compete with slave labor. "But nothing will be done without the bloodiest blows..." Meanwhile, back in the U.S., Andrew Jackson forms an alliance with Thomas Hart Benton (!!) and John Quincy Adams (!!!) to bring down President Henry Clay and the slaveocracy. They form an AH National Democratic-Republican Party with a goal of gradual state-by-state emancipation and four principles: no restrictions on voting, property, movement or residence, or marriage due to race or color.

An upper level storm system will move across the southern Plains today, with an expansive area of widespread rain and thunderstorms. The main concern today will be from sustained heavy rains, with 1 to 3 inch amounts likely for some locations. This may cause localized flooding for low lying areas through tonight. The better severe weather threat will remain well southeast of the area. However, a few stronger storms are possible across southeast Oklahoma. The main hazard with these storms is small hail up to penny sized. As the upper low moves across northwest Arkansas tonight, rain may mix briefly with snow by early Sunday morning. No accumulations are expected. Rain will clear out of the area by Sunday afternoon with temperatures back in the mid to upper 70s by Monday. It will remain windy through the first part of the week. The next storm system will approach by Wednesday with a chance for showers and storms, some of which could be severe given forecast wind and instability fields.

Good morning, it is Friday.

Friday of Spring Break! Like many a Spring Break we are just hanging out. Maren worked a few days and Lillie has been busy with Tech. I've been working on my EdTPA and lesson planning. Starting Monday I will be doing my official student teaching for two full weeks! Yikes!
In typical Spring weather here in the PNW, the rain has not disappointed!
That said, I did get to sneak out Wednesday evening for golf league. I payed very well for my first time out this year. There may have been as many ducks on the golf course as golfers!
My van hit 120,000 miles this spring break! That's a milestone. Here's to another (you fill in the blank) miles!
Before Spring Break author Patrick Carman had an assembly at our school. He has written many books and gave a wonderful talk. So funny! I guess this new book is an interactive book with not only the reader, but with technology too. Interesting.

OK, back to work. It will be editing film next, then more planning for next week. Once my two weeks of student teaching is up, and my EdTPA is turned in, I may actually...I have no idea:)

See you tomorrow-ish.
          Several injuries, heavy damage reported after tornado touches down in Franklin      Comment   Translate Page      

A tornado ripped through Franklin, Texas, on Saturday as the National Weather Service in the state posted one tornado warning after another.

There were reports of multiple injuries, the NWS said, and KBTX-TV reported widespread damage. According to KBTX, injured residents were being treated at the Methodist church in Franklin.

Trees were pulled up by the roots, roofs were torn off buildings and the cinderblock foundation was all that was left of a mobile home in the town, which is southeast of Waco.

PHOTOS: Tornado damage in Franklin

Residents have reported downed power lines, cars overturned and homes completely destroyed, KBTX reports.

The severe storms caused power outages across the area. The Franklin Police Department said a curfew will be put in place from 8 p.m. Saturday until 7 a.m. Sunday for the city.

The city was also placed under a boil-water notice.

Police are asking people to avoid the town until further notice while residents and crews begin to clean up. Police advised people who are trying to check on loved ones to call the Pridgeon Center in Franklin at 979-828-3276.


          La Pedestrienne on "Thinking spring (and summer)"      Comment   Translate Page      

Just a quick brainstorm for warm-weather shopping/dressing, since it's actually sunny today and I'm the mood. I went back to Angie's SS19 Trends post and found that there's actually a lot to be excited about. On the surface, the vibrant, maximal, clashy look that is everywhere is not really my thing, but there are abundant elements that are in line with my style direction.

Some S/S trends I’m looking forward to:

Bike shorts -- I want these as actual gear for hiking, running and yoga. I’ve alway found that spandex shorts with a shorter inseam roll up on themselves and get all bunchy, so I’m excited by the availability of lots of options with a longer inseam. I might also wear them under short dresses.

Overalls -- I’m keeping an eye out for some slouchy denim overalls and shortalls. Good for casual wear and in keeping with the utility trend and the 90s retro looks I’ve been seeing. If I had a pair of light-wash overalls right now, I’d be wearing them with a ribbed black turtleneck underneath.

Hair accessories -- I’m enjoying barrettes and headbands to keep my bob-length hair out of my face; I wouldn’t mind adding some new colours and shapes.

Earth tones -- Especially excited about adding a dose of mustard, butterscotch, or cinnamon to outfits that are mostly crisp, cool shades of black/white/blue. Still loving my olive too! But ready for some light/bright browns.

Jumpsuits -- Glad this trend is taking off rather than fizzling out. I have a luxe, drapey plum jumpsuit that I’m excited to wear as soon as it’s warm enough for bare arms. I’d love to find a linen or chambray option this year too.

Wide legs -- Cropped and full length, with higher rises. I have two cropped pairs in twill, and I’m hoping to find a pair of wide-legged jeans this year with a full inseam. I wouldn’t mind a pair of classic bootcuts either (to wear with sneakers!).

Midi skirts -- I have several skirts ranging in length from below-the-knee to below-the-calf. I think they will be a big part of my summer outfits, paired with boxy cropped tops or with fitted tank tops.

Chunky/sporty sandals -- I wear my Chacos all summer long anyway. Fun that they’re trending. And I just added a pair of white EVA Birks as my pool slides. Fully invested in this trend! ;)

Windowpane plaid -- Most of the loud maximal patterns I’m seeing lately do nothing for me, so I am happy that windowpane plaid still seems to be trending. I added a linen windowpane tank top last year. It didn’t get much wear since I had to alter it a bit. Now it’s ready to go; I’m just waiting for warmer weather!

Sneakers with everything -- I have a nice little collection of sneakers and I’m looking forward to wearing them with everything, especially skirts and dresses.

Photos and Finds are a mish-mash of inspo, things I have and things I want. Just to give you an idea.

          The Deluge      Comment   Translate Page      


It started off like one of Michael Avenatti's clients, misty rain, but this is Texas not the Cotswolds, so fine April spray soon turned to fierce downpour followed by wind-whipped, cataclysmic deluge. No kidding, the elemental weather spirits were clearly displeased with preparations for Holy Week.




Or perhaps the explanation's natural. As the earth's magnetic field weakens prior to pole flip, so too does our old enemy, the Weather, strengthen. Regardless, the roads into town were on their way to being flooded and having a rig came in handy.




Safely back at the Compound, we stand resolute while lightning cracks overhead and rain crashes down, watching the flotsam and jetsam of a once prosperous farming community sweep by in the rising waters. Discarded weaves, dead blunt packets, broken toys, malt liquor bottles, carrion and other trash, all the usual offscouring of rural life. 

Is this the Eschaton? The dogs certainly think so, howling above the thunder and the sirens which fill the air. But no, surely this is just a harbinger of things to come. 




Speaking of which, top level bi-coastal elite Democrats don't seem too pleased with the President's plan to ship illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities like San Francisco. It's like MAGA's somehow, haha, rained on their MillSoc parade.




Didn't you get the memo, commies? Open borders begin at home.

Shelter from the storm,

LSP

Washington's Deleware Crossing Revisited

History as we know it is often misrepresented, incomplete, and even intentionally altered for political reason. We now know that since the early 1900's that an effort was underway to undermine American exceptionalism and use the school room as a way for the government to exert mental control over the children just as we're seeing today. When charitable trusts like Carnegie, Ford, and Rockefeller among others were conspiring to introduce socialism into the classroom and transform the events of US history into a departure from the efforts of our Founding Fathers by distorting the truth. Getting it straight Such is the case with the historical account of General George Washington's capture of Trenton, New Jersey on the night of December 25, 1776 when on a bitterly cold Christmas eve he led the tattered Continental Army on a raid that overwhelmed Hessian troops who were garrisoned there. The victory was much more important than simply winning a single battle though, and according to the neglectful historians who present their flawed account, the Hessians were not drunk, unwary, and unprepared to defend their encampment. The general impression given in most history books is that the Hessians were unskilled soldiers, half asleep and drunk having been caught off guard, or Washington and his rag tag army would not have prevailed. All incorrect and intended to mislead the students. Resistance Quite to the contrary! Prior to the surprise attack Washington had planned when he met with his staff of officers to arrange the assault, his ambition was not well received. Claiming that due to the heavy snowfall munitions and gun powder might have been damp and incapable of igniting! The men his officers argued were not ready for battle, and the weather conditions were too oppressive to conduct an operation. One officer even challenged General Washington's competence as a rational leader and suggested he be relieved of command. Upon Washington's orders, General Gates, commander of the southern army in the Carolinas was ordered out of the staff meeting by gun point by one of the soldiers and rode his horse out of the Continental Army's headquarters. The march In one of the coldest winter nights in memory Washington's army set out in a practical blizzard as horse drawn artillery, boats for the crossing, and recruits who were pushed to their limit marched several miles to the shores of the Delaware River. Washington's officers had argued that the Hessians had spies all over the place and that any major operation would be detected and sent to the enemy, but this did not happen. No one expected that the Continental Army would march in such conditions! Yet fate took an unexpected turn. Complications arise Prior to Washington's attack a separate unit of Militiamen and their Captain had arrived at the same idea and had assaulted the Hessian positions before the Continental Army under Washington could arrive. When General Washington received word from the Captain of the defeated Militia forces that he had just attempted a siege upon the Hessian defenses the future president of the United States was furious! "You, Sir, have just compromised my battle plans!" Unfettered However, Washington channeled his rage into further determination! He implored troops who would have followed him into hell to continue with their mission, and they remained loyal to the ambition of the father of a nation yet to succeed at its destiny! They arrived at the river's shore and began launching the boats upon icy waters that could have been too frozen to traverse. The troops, their cannons, pack animals and carts were all loaded and the crossing began. Where the lies end and the truth prevailed History has portrayed the Hessians as incompetent, unmotivated, and halfhearted in their efforts, but in reality they were crack German troops loyal to the cause of King George's government and being paid well for their services by the crown. Another lie made by historians is that they were asleep after a Christmas feast of food and wine and only a few sentries were on guard when, in truth, they had just repulsed the efforts of the Militiamen and their captain and were on full alert! The Hessians were, y no means, incapable or asleep at the wheel. They were at their positions even if they did not expect a second assault. Objective attained As always, Washington's plans unfolded effectively once his assets were positioned. The cannons roared, the Continental soldiers charged into battle overwhelming their Hessian opponents with a ferocity that intimidated the well-trained Germans. The defensive perimeter quickly broke down as Washington's men stormed the Hessian emplacements. The German commander attempted to rally his men but to no avail. He was soon forced to surrender under the savage attack by the Continental troops as musket fire blazed and the Hessian soldiers fell to the bayonets of the Americans! Changing of fortunes The prior summer the Continental Army had been fighting a series of battles that they had lost and been forced to retreat from either the British but had also been engaged by the Hessians and had lost to them as well. The Redcoats were confident that they could wait out Washington's forces until spring and then simply dictate terms of surrender since the Americans had lost New York and the Congress had been forced to flee Philadelphia with news that there were no longer any Continental Army forces between them and the British! It seemed a forgone conclusion that King George's forces were in perfect position to deliver the final blow and could do so at their convenience. Reaping the rewards of victory The victory at Trenton bought precious time for the Americans, provided much needed provisions, weapon stores, and ammunition, but it also achieved a great morale victory that at least guaranteed the life of General Washington's army until spring. Meanwhile news of the Colonial victory got back to Europe and bolstered a renewed confidence in the new world which would also bring the trade needed to help finance the war effort along with possible allies willing to assist in the revolution against the English! The Redcoats now unsure of Continental Army's strength and actual position were reticent to send an expeditionary force into the area to engage Washington's forces in the immediate future which gave the Yankees much needed time to recover and regroup. Far reaching implications Thanks to General George Washington's gamble and his fearless determination the momentum of the War for Independence had suddenly turned the tables on the British. The victory over Commander John Phall's command at Trenton paved the way for 2 more victories over the British as Washington once again crossed the Delaware leading his column on January 2nd to defeat General Lord Cornwallis rear guard forces then advancing to Princeton and handing the British another loss. Washington's Army had also captured 2/3's of the Hessian soldiers with hardly any casualties. The daring raid on Trenton had led to an inspiring vengeance that breathed new life into the American Revolution.See More

  Isolated very large hail events to 2 inches in diameter possible

SUMMARY...Severe storms are expected to develop and potentially
increase through late evening across eastern Mississippi into
northern/central portions of Alabama, with the most intense storms
favoring a sub-regional area near a warm front where low-level shear
is maximized. This will include the potential for a few
semi-discrete supercells, although a mixed convective mode is most
likely. Tornadoes will be possible, a couple of which could be
strong, aside from damaging winds and possibly hail.

The tornado watch area is approximately along and 70 statute miles
north and south of a line from 55 miles northwest of Meridian MS to
20 miles northeast of Birmingham AL. For a complete depiction of the
watch see the associated watch outline update (WOUS64 KWNS WOU5).

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

REMEMBER...A Tornado Watch means conditions are favorable for
tornadoes and severe thunderstorms in and close to the watch
area. Persons in these areas should be on the lookout for
threatening weather conditions and listen for later statements
and possible warnings.

          April snow lands on Hawaii island summits      Comment   Translate Page      
It's April, and it's snowing atop the Hawaii island summits. A little over an inch of snow dusted the summits of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa on the Big Island overnight, due to deep moisture wrapping around a broad, low-pressure system to the east, according to National Weather Service officials. More snow is expected to accumulate today and tonight, adding another 1 to 3 inches. A winter weather advisory for Big Island summits above the 11,500-foot elevation level remains in effect through 6 a.m. Saturday.

MD 0330 CONCERNING SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 54... FOR EASTERN LOUISIANA...MISSISSIPPI
MD 0330 Image

Mesoscale Discussion 0330
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0831 PM CDT Sat Apr 13 2019

Areas affected...Eastern Louisiana...Mississippi

Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 54...

Valid 140131Z - 140330Z

The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 54
continues.

SUMMARY...The severe threat associated with a convective line in the
far eastern part of WW 54 will likely move eastward out of the
watch. However, there could be a lingering severe threat in the
southern part of the watch as cells move eastward out of eastern
Louisiana into south-central Mississippi.

DISCUSSION...The latest radar imagery shows a well-developed line of
thunderstorms extending from central Mississippi southward into
southwestern Mississippi. This line is moving eastward at about 40
Kt. This means the line will exit the eastward edge of the watch
over the next hour or so.

Further southwest, the RAP is analyzing MLCAPE in the 2000-2500 J/kg
range. In addition, strong deep-layer shear profiles are evident on
regional WSR-88D VWPs. This along 850 mb flow of 50 to 60 kt could
be enough for an isolated severe threat across south-central
Mississippi and far eastern Louisiana. Wind damage would be the
primary threat. For this reason, WW 54 may need to be extended in
time to account for the lingering severe threat.

          Archie v Anibal Sanchez, Lineup & Notes      Comment   Translate Page      
Game: The game starts in Washington at 4:05. The match will be on AT&T SportsNet and 93.7 The Fan. The weather shouldn't be an issue for a change - it's forecast to be cloudy and in the mid-70's.

Lineup: Adam Frazier 2B, Starling Marte CF, Fran Cervelli C, Josh Bell 1B, Colin Moran 3B, Melky Cabrera RF, JB Shuck LF, Erik Gonzalez SS, Chris Archer P. Hey, Redbeard starts against a rightie and JB gets a reward for his two-hit day.

Colin gets the start today (image Pittsburgh Pirates)

Pitchers: RHP Chris Archer (1-0/2.45) meets RHP Anibal Sanchez (0-1/6.52). Archie didn't face the Nats last year, and is on borrowed time as he appeals his suspension. Sanchez seems to be the designated Keystone State hurler; after two starts against the Phils, he now draws the Bucs. He had a good outing against the Pirates last year, giving up one earned run in 5-1/3 innings with six whiffs, but didn't get a decision. He swapped spots with Max Scherzer for the series to allow Max's bruised leg an extra day to heal.

Notes:
  • Melky was supposed to have an off day yesterday after five straight starts, but he pinch hit and doubled. Shouldn't have taken much out of him, tho, as J-Mart came in to run for him. Clint wants him available to start over the weekend; he should be good to go (and is starting today).
  • C Elias Diaz hasn't caught a full game for Indy yet while on rehab, but in three contests (two as DH) he's gone 6-for-12.
  • Cole Tucker and Ke'Bryan Hayes have been getting most of the Indy love (and they deserve it) but don't go to sleep on Will Craig, The 1B has five homers, a .290 BA/.436 OBP slash and a tolerable 23% K rate in eight games for the Tribe. We're curious how the Pirates will handle the 24-year-old with J-Bell blocking him now if both keep on.
  • LHP Stephen Tarpley has been optioned to Scranton to clear CC Sabathia's roster spot. He was sent to Yankees as part of the Ivan Nova deal in 2016, and worked 14 games in 2018-19 with no decisions and a 3.75 ERA.

          2019 Masters Third Round Highlights      Comment   Translate Page      

Perfect weather made for as near perfect conditions as we've ever seen at The Masters during Saturday's third round. Luckily for the remaining field the rain held off at least for the day. Championship Sunday will be a different story as tee times have already been adjusted to start earlier, go off on both the 1st and 10th tees and be set in threesomes.

Records were challenged throughout the day at Augusta National as for the first time in tournament history four players shot 8-under rounds of 64 on the same day. One of those men was 29-year old Tony Finau who currently sits as one of the three co-leaders at 11-under par. In his sophomore outing at Augusta Finau also tied to course record with a 30 on the front nine.

Joining Finau in the final pairing Sunday also at 11-under will be the four-time Masters winner Tiger Woods. However, despite stellar play by both challengers they'll both be chasing the two-stroke leader Francesco Molinari. The 2018 Open champion quietly rose up the leaderboard and into sole possession of the lead thanks to four straight birdies on the back nine. Last Word on Golf has your top highlights and Masters moments from Saturday's third round at Augusta National.

Finau catches fire

Making just his second Masters start, Tony Finau showed that he can be a true contender no matter the course. After starting his third round with four birdies over the first seven holes Finau nearly holed his 261-yard approach shot for an albatross. An eight-inch tap in would give him an easy eagle and a 6-under start for his round.

Already on a tear Saturday, Finau stepped up to the par-5 13th on a mission. With still 11-feet to navigate he sent the putt home for his fifth birdie of the day to move into the early solo lead at 10-under.

https://twitter.com/TheMasters/status/1117157909413150726

It's been said the secret to winning at Augusta National is successfully scoring on the par-5's. Finau did just that Saturday going 5-under across the four par-5's including a birdie at the 530-yard 15th.

Woods continues to turn back the clocks

Seeking his first major championship since 2008, and his first green jacket since 2005, Tiger Woods continued to ignite the gallery once again Saturday. Following an unfortunate bogey at the 5th hole, Woods fired back at the par-3 6th for birdie to get back to 6-under. Just one hole later a spot on approach would lead to the second of three straight birdies for the 14-time major champion.

https://twitter.com/TheMasters/status/1117149083829964800

On the heels of four straight pars Woods woke the crowd up once again as he rounded Amen Corner with his fourth birdie of the day.

https://twitter.com/TheMasters/status/1117171990119501825

Few moments at The Masters elicit the overwhelming roar of the gallery like a lead tying putt by Tiger Woods. That was exactly what he heard with back to back birdies at 15 and 16 to get to 11-under.

https://twitter.com/TheMasters/status/1117181589505675267

Saturdays other top shots around Augusta

Francesco Molinari's stealth like precision around the course often flies under the radar until it's too late. The Italian did exactly that Saturday at Augusta as all eyes were focused on Woods and his crowd roaring run. Molinari quietly made four straight birdies beginning from 12 through 15 to propel himself into a two-stroke lead.

https://twitter.com/TheMasters/status/1117184421218738182

Perennial PGA Tour fan favorite Rickie Fowler has yet to make the big push for the lead but has kept himself in contention thanks to shots like his chip-in eagle at 13 on Saturday.

https://twitter.com/TheMasters/status/1117154896044802048

Saturday may not have been the picture perfect round for Brooks Koepka after capturing a share of the lead over both Thursday and Friday. But an eagle at the par-5 15th helped spark the three-time major winner down the stretch.

https://twitter.com/TheMasters/status/1117186638977949696

Making a steady run Saturday with a 5-under round of 67, Sweden's Henrik Stenson drained his 45-foot birdie putt at the par-3 16th.

https://twitter.com/TheMasters/status/1117120838531190784

Despite a less than ideal Masters campaign in 2019, Rory McIlroy has refused to go quietly especially after confidently finishing his par-5's Saturday at 15 for eagle.

45.00 USD

Our hanging Xerographica planter is a way to elevate these large, gorgeous air plants for display and to let their long, tendril like leaves curl and hang. A sturdy brass ring makes a nest for the base of your plant. Wired to the ring are four strands of chunky gold toned chain. These chains suspend the nest but also help to hold it steady, and the length is adjustable , via a split ring at the top. This is all suspended from a wire wrapped crystal - blue fluorite, rose quartz or clear quartz, choose from the drop down menu. A large ring at the top allows the piece to be hung from a ceiling hook, or a nail or small peg.


This piece generally measures 30 inches or so long, but the chains can be adjusted to be shorter. Or, if you let me know ahead of time, we can create a custom length one for you!


This hanger DOES NOT COME WITH A XEROGRAPHICA, but you can purchase a handpicked one to go with it here:

You'd think with the official start of Spring being just around the corner, motivation to get an exercise regime together might come naturally. The pressure starts to mount from all angles when shirtless fun is on the horizon. Whether you go to the gym to maintain a healthy lifestyle, vanity, or genuine enjoyment, it can get kind of stale at times. Recently, some of us on the Daddyhunt Team have been trying to be a bit more active outside of the gym, as in, building some "real world" strength that's actually applicable and, dare we say, fun! The gym plateau we all reach is commonplace, which is why a supplemental activity seems like the best chance of shaking things up. In an effort to give us all the "get up and go" we might need, we've gathered some potentially fun suggestions to keep things interesting.

Join an Intramural Gay Sports Group

What if playing sports with a group of guys could actually be fun? Not only are gay sports leagues a great way of keeping in shape and to a schedule, they're also a great way to make new friends (and who knows, even meet your future significant other).
Grab A Partner

Statistics show that having a workout partner in tow increases your chances of reaching your fitness goals. While actually making sure you each get to the gym is an obvious benefit, there's nothing like having a friend there to give you a spot and encouraging you to push yourself even further. You may also find that in trying to keep up with each other, developing a healthy dose of competition can keep you performing at peak levels. What's more, having a date at the gym, with a new beau or significant other, can keep things sexy in and out of the gym. Especially when it's time to hit the showers and burn even more calories with some post-workout sexcersizing.

Find Someone to Kick Your Ass

It may not be for everybody, but sometimes you need someone to get in your face and subsequently force you to the ground. Finding a local exercise boot camp or program may seem like a scary idea at first, but the results are nothing but. Making a commitment to meet before (or after) work with a group of peers and have a drill sergeant push you to your limits will whip you into shape in no time. Just look at all those sexy military recruits. If it works for them, it'll certainly work for you. There are similar, albeit slightly less intense programs, like CrossFit, which has locations around the world and garner the same sexy results. CrossFit gyms are great for all levels of experience. And while they can vary depending on which gym you go to, the classes your own gym has to offer can be a great way to spice things up from time to time and get some different muscles in the mix.

The Great Outdoors

When the weather begins to warm up, shirts tend to come off. That should be motivation enough to take a stroll, run, bike, blade, or skip around your local park and see what the rest of the guys are up to be they straight or gay. And if you're able, switching up your commute via bike or walking can be another great way to make getting fit a part of your daily routine (and save you some money in the process).

Got any other great motivators or suggestions for getting back with the healthy? Get those finger working and type hard below!

With the 2019 Paris-Roubaix inching another day closer, teams took advantage of more clear, dry weather on Friday to reconnoitre some of the cobbled sectors they'll face on Sunday.

Greg van Avermaet was out with his CCC Team as the Olympic road race champion hopes to add a second 'Hell of the North' title to his palmarès, having also won in 2017.

John Degenkolb, winner of the race in 2015, was out on the course with the Trek-Segafredo roster, which includes Jasper Stuyven, who finished fourth at Roubaix in 2017, and fifth last year.

And UAE team Emirates' Alexander Kristoff and newcomer Jasper Philipsen were out previewing the cobbles, with Kristoff having been showing some good form of late. He'll be looking to score a first Roubaix win on Sunday, which would be his third Monument, having won Milan-San Remo and the Tour of Flanders in 2014 and 2015, respectively.

Other riders out on Friday looking over some of the cobbled sectors included Astana's Magnus Cort and the Deceuninck-QuickStep armada of Zdenek Stybar, Philippe Gilbert, Yves Lampaert and Kasper Asgreen. André Greipel and his Arkea-Samsic team were also spotted, as were Arnaud Démare and his Groupama-FDJ teammates.

          Multiple people injured after a tornado plows through some areas in texas, USA      Comment   Translate Page      
A powerful storm system has ripped through a broad swath of Texas, with reports of 'significant damage' and injuries from a tornado in Franklin. Multiple structures in Franklin were destroyed by a tornado on Saturday, as severe weather swept through eastern Texas toward Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi. One mobile home was reportedly ripped from its foundations with a person inside. Multiple injuries have been reported, including two to children.

          Government technology applications showcased at International ICT Expo (with photos)      Comment   Translate Page      
     The Office of the Government Chief Information Officer (OGCIO) is showcasing for the first time the smart lamppost and the free electronic identity (eID) at the Smart Government Pavilion at the International ICT Expo which started today (April 13). The public may also have a glimpse of various technology applications that government departments have adopted and will employ to enhance public service and develop Hong Kong into a smarter city.
      
     The smart lampposts to collect real-time city data will commence service in phases from mid-2019. A prototype of the smart lamppost has been set up at the Pavilion to exhibit the camera and various sensors and smart devices installed. There is also a demonstration on how data collected will facilitate city management with the aid of artificial intelligence technology and provide real-time city information to the public.
      
     Another highlight is the demonstration of eID, which is planned for rollout next year. Visitors can try out the quick and simple online registration and learn about the usage of this single digital identity authentication for performing online transactions with government and commercial entities.
      
     The OGCIO is also using the occasion to introduce the upcoming Smart Government Innovation Lab (Smart Lab) and the city dashboard. The Smart Lab will invite the industry to put forward proposals of innovative information technology applications and product suggestions for addressing challenges in public services while the city dashboard will present some livelihood-related open data such as those on traffic, weather and air quality on interactive charts and maps via data.gov.hk.
      
     "The Government endeavours to adopt innovation and technology in various areas and services. We hope that through the interactive exhibits at the Pavilion, the public will have a better understanding of the convenience these applications can bring to them," the Government Chief Information Officer, Mr Victor Lam, said after touring the Pavilion today.
      
     Other exhibits include the virtual reality technology adopted in maintenance training for seaport passenger boarding bridges; the e-Channel pre-fetch kiosk, which allows reading of smart identity card information by means of a contactless chip interface; the Post-dispatch Advice System to provide callers with more comprehensive and appropriate advice; the Single E-Lock Scheme for streamlining customs clearance processes; the Health Signs Monitoring System to help protect the safety of persons in custody; a voice recognition chatbot; and in-vehicle units to facilitate traffic management.

          Cycling Scene in Guwahati – Part 2      Comment   Translate Page      

Part_2_pic

Part II

Continuing from last week’s article about the evolving cycling scene in Guwahati this week let us have a look at the different types of cycling events in the city and something more.

Rallies are organised mostly to propagate a message or support a cause. Some of the important rallies organised were Pedal against drug abuse in 2018 by various NGOs, Saksham Cyclothon by PCRA in 2018 and 2019 to spread awareness about petroleum conservation, Tourism Day rallies by Assam Tourism dept in 2017 and 2018, Cycle Rally to spread awareness about organ donation by ROTTO in 2018 and many others. Rallies tend be short city rides of 10 to 20 kms and these attract a lot of people.

Apart from rallies different community or group cycle rides also get organised. These rides are mainly social events where people enjoy riding in and around the city. The biggest cycle ride in the region being the Freedom Ride, organised to celebrate India’s Independence Day, by a group called (Guwahati Cycle Tour) GCT who had organised it two years in a row since 2017 and intends to make it an annual event. Last year Freedom Ride 2018 saw more than 300 cyclists ride together to celebrate India’s 72nd Independence Day.

Community rides such as Holi Ride, Diwali ride, Picnic ride and also on other occasions are organised regularly by the members of GCC. An annual cycling event called Guwahati Cyclothon is organised by an organisation called Everything Outdoors. Yet another group called WOW Cyclothon organizes cycle rides targeting women. A few of the cycle stores have their own groups and organize weekly rides to encourage their new and old customers. One such active group is Wonder Wheels Brotherhood. A group named Jajabor used to organize long distance group rides to nearby towns. The group came into prominence when they had ridden from Guwahati to Saikhowaghat in the first part of 2017. One more group called Cycling Zone works differently by making videos of cycling events and the rides they undertake near the city.

To whet the appetite of those who are competitively inclined different types of races are also organised by different groups. One of the earlier group called Wheelion used to organise long distance endurance races as well as short distance uphill race till last year. Then there was this whole series of different races being organised under a name called GBCh (Guwahati Bicycle Championships). The biggest and the most followed race till date in Guwahati was the 1st edition of Assam Downhill Championships, held in September 2018, where participants came from different parts of the country.

There is this format of cycling longer distances called brevet or BRMs. These are mainly long distance timed endurance rides. BRMs are self supported endurance rides where riders ride for distances like 200 / 300 / 400 / 600 / 1000 / 1200 kms within specified time limits in routes having control points,. These are internationally recognized events and in Guwahati these are organised by Guwahati Randonneurs.

All the above mentioned groups and events do not come under the ambit of the state sports association and are being organised by people out of their own interest and passion. The sports cycling scene in the state will be covered in a future article.

In spite of there being many cycling groups and events happening all round the year in the city there are many people who stay out and ride solo. Again there are those people who like to tour on their cycles. Touring is an activity where cyclists load up their cycles with the most necessary items and ride from one place to another for many days, weeks, months or even years. Although cycle tourers travelling for months or years are mostly foreigners who pass through the region on their way towards south east Asia there is a small albeit growing number of people who go out on short weekend tours or month long tours around the state. In 2017 two boys from Tezpur rode all way from their hometown to Laddakh on their cycles in nearly 40 days.

Among all the people who use cycles it’s the people who use it to ride to work that is the most unorganized and silent. Although this set of people are mostly poor who ride their bicycle out of compulsion or the young students who too ride it as they don’t have a choice there is a very small but growing number of people who have chosen to ride to work on their cycles. Some highly educated professionals in the city have made it a habit to cycle for their work in all weather conditions. It is this set of people who need all the support and encouragement to carry on cycling to their work. It is this set of people who can make the biggest positive impact on the growing pollution and congestion levels in our city. It is this set of people which needs to grow if we are to have a clean and healthy city.

If more people are to use their cycles to commute for their work then the city needs to give them better facilities like safe & covered parking spaces, dedicated cycling lanes. Educational institutes and Offices need to provide parking areas to their students and employees. All government and private organizations also need to provide facilities like shower rooms to their employees and if possible provide incentives to those who pedal to work. The motor vehicle driving population needs to respect the cyclists. Organisations, both public and private, will have to frame policies and processes to encourage cycling to work.

But on an individual level we also need to start taking responsible decisions to make our future clean and healthy and taking up cycling is, without any doubt, the best one.

Arshel Akhter - The writer is a cycling enthusiast who also happens to be the Bicycle Mayor of Guwahati. This is an honorary and non political positions given to him by a Netherlands based social enterprise called BYCS. He also runs a project called Pedal for a Change to promote cycling and cyclists in the region.

By Todd Royal, AMERICAN THINKER When pollsters realized the public and elected officials weren’t buying global warming as a concept or policy, in a brilliant political move, they came up with the phrase “climate change.” This helped sell the theory of man-made global warming.  Weather is politicized and computer models are only predictions that have been used as pawns in elections and justifying increased government budgets.

          2 children killed as storms lash Texas      Comment   Translate Page      

Storms hammered east Texas on Saturday, with two children killed when a tree fell on a car, authorities said.

The children, ages 3 and 8, were in the back seat with their parents in the front when the tree fell on their vehicle around 3 p.m., said Angelina County Sheriff's Department Captain Alton Lenderman. The children were pronounced dead at the scene.

A tornado ripped through Franklin, Texas, on Saturday, as the National Weather Service in the state posted one tornado warning after another.

There were reports of multiple injuries, the NWS said, and CNN affiliate KWTX reported widespread damage in Franklin. Trees were pulled up by the roots, roofs torn off buildings, and the cinder block foundation was all that was left of a mobile home in the town, which is southeast of Waco.

The entire town of Franklin and neighboring Bremond lost electricity, with power expected to be restored Saturday night.

To the north, dime-sized hail pounded the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

Texas is seeing the beginning of the dangerous and severe storms forecast to slam parts of the Southeast and Ohio River Valley this weekend.

The powerful system will create the potential for life-threatening winds, strong tornadoes and large hail.

The Storm Prediction Center has issued a moderate risk (level 4 out of 5) for severe weather Saturday across parts of the Lower Mississippi Valley.

And Sunday, an enhanced risk (level 3 out of 5) stretches from Atlanta to Cleveland.

4 tornado safety tips that could save your life

 

Severe storms possible from Texas to Mississippi

 

Track the storms with CNN's storm tracker

CNN meteorologist Chad Myers said the warm air present during the afternoon enhanced the atmosphere's instability, creating more energy for storms to tap into and aiding in their development.

He said the threat for severe weather is greatest at such times.

The storms most capable of producing tornadoes and large hail will be the individual, rotating cells that form ahead of a larger complex of thunderstorms.

 

Tornadoes possible overnight in Alabama

 

By late Saturday, the storms were expected to organize into a line as they cross the western border of Mississippi.

The system will begin to move through Alabama overnight and is expected to reach Georgia by Sunday morning.

The energy from warm afternoon temperatures will diminish, but the risk for tornadoes will not be over.

"The storm is so vigorous that tornadoes are still possible after dark," Myers said.

Tornadoes at that time can be especially dangerous since they are difficult to see and people are less likely to receive warnings while they're asleep.

 

Georgia, the southern Appalachians and Ohio Valley

 

The most significant risk of severe weather is expected Saturday, but there's still considerable potential Sunday.

The Storm Prediction Center issued an enhanced risk across a broad area, stretching from eastern Alabama through the southern Appalachians and into the Ohio Valley. The main line of storms will begin to push into this area late Sunday morning and trek to the east on Sunday afternoon. The center said it expects the threat of severe weather to increase throughout the afternoon.

"Damaging winds appear to be the greatest threat on Sunday, but tornadoes will also be possible," CNN meteorologist Dave Hennen said.

The risk will slowly diminish as the system begins to weaken Sunday evening.

 

Sunday tee times moved up at The Masters

 

Georgia's Augusta National Golf Club is included in the slight risk area Sunday as the Masters golf tournament concludes. Tournament organizers have moved up tee times for Sunday because of the storm threat.

The storms are expected to move through the Augusta area during the afternoon and evening.

The tornado threat will be lower by then, but damaging winds could still present hazardous conditions.

CNN's Theresa Waldrop contributed to this report.

          Hockey Notes For All      Comment   Translate Page      
from Steve Simons of the Toronto Sun, - The time to wonder about the Tampa Bay Lightning was a year ago. That seems more apparent today than it might have seemed yesterday. Tampa didn’t just lose in the Eastern Conference final to the Washington Capitals last spring. They stopped playing. They were shut out in Game 6 of the final and then again in Game 7. They looked partially out of gas, partially out of emotion. Their best scorer, the obvious MVP, Nikita Kucherov, had one point in their final four playoff games last spring, and no points through two losses this year against the Columbus Blue Jackets.... - Looks like Jack Hughes will go to New Jersey with the first pick in the NHL draft. But wouldn’t it have been better had the New York Rangers won the lottery. The Rangers haven’t had a star forward in years. - Looks like Todd McLellan has chosen the Los Angeles Kings over the Buffalo Sabres as coach, which is nice if weather is your criterion for choice. If you’re picking young hockey players, Buffalo is the choice, which tells you all you need to know about the Sabres ownership and front office, when weather is taking precedence over Jack Eichel, Rasmus Dahlin and more - If the Edmonton Oilers have identified their general manager and coach for next season and are just waiting on announcements, that makes sense. If they haven’t, that makes no sense. If they go inside and hire Keith Gretzky, that’s just lazy. more on the Lightning and other topics too...
          Re: Asset allocation - non-qualified deferred comp      Comment   Translate Page      
Hi, I'm on the 12th year of a 15-year deferred comp plan, except mine was at a fixed rate that changed annually. I viewed my deferred comp as an annuity, bond like. In your case, I have a couple of thoughts. You have twelve years before you will begin withdrawals, so a modestly higher than 50/50 allocation might be appropriate given the time frame and the fact that you have a bond-like pension. In total, however, you have a 27-year horizon if you add the 12 years and the 15 years.



One rule of thumb on retirement is to have 10-12 years worth of expenses in safe assets on your retirement date to weather a downturn. From there you can gradually increase your equity allocation over time. Unfortunately, we are in one of those periods where "safe" bonds that won't decline in principal value if inflation increases are hard to find. TIPs are about the only alternative and don't yield much right now.



Overall, I would take a total portfolio approach to all your assets, rather than just looking at the deferred comp as a single item. I can also tell you from my experience that the taxes, fed and state, are quite shocking at the highest rates when that check rolls in. It's a W-2 for a long time down the road, complicating converting to Roths, etc. Grateful I had it though. Best wishes.
          Weather forecast pushes final round Masters tee times up on Sunday; CBS broadcast will start at 9 AM Eastern      Comment   Translate Page      

There’s long been a joke that the folks at Augusta National would prefer to install a dome over the property, all the better to provide the hermetically sealed environment they aim for. When you zoom all the way out on the tracker function, you can see the dome that ANGC has built over the course. Read more...

Ride Description: 

Been off the bike for a while? Bought a bike and not yet confident riding?  Been riding and looking for new routes?  Time to take advantage of nice weather to get riding for health, fitness or just fun! Here is your opportunity to meet cycling friends, develop riding skills, become more familiar with your bike and feel confident riding in a group.

We start and finish at the Chainline Brewing Company in Kirkland, next door to the Google Campus and on the Cross Kirkland Corridor.  Please park at the far south end of the parking lot.  Arrive 20 minutes before the published start time to ready your bike and check in.

This is a social ride with experienced ride leaders to grow your confidence with group riding. It is free and open to everyone. The route (follow Map and Elevation Profile link) consists of trails and bike-friendly streets with easy to moderate climbs so you can practice shifting gears. Everyone will ride the hills at their own pace and we always regroup at the top and before any turns so you need not be concerned about being left behind.  Restrooms will be at Everest Park at the .6 mile mark.  It is recommended that you bring a snack to eat mid-ride.  After the ride, join us at the brewery for a beverage and more conversation about biking

"Leisurely Pace" is 10-12 mph on flat surface without any headwind. We will go slower on hills and with a headwind and faster going downhill. Average walking speed is around 3 mph, so we will be 3-4 times faster!. If you aren't sure about your pace, please join us anyway, but study the route and bring a printed cue sheet with you. We can help you read the cue sheet if you need to return to the start early.

You should dress appropriately for the weather, but you do not need spandex or other specialized bike gear. All you need is a working bike, water, and a helmet. If you haven't ridden your bike for quite some time, please do a ABC Check (link below) or take it to your local bike shop a few days prior to the ride date.  During the safety and ride briefing, we will go over hand signals and what we say during the ride to keep ourselves safe.

Register - Please sign an e-waiver by clicking on the “Register Now” button at the top of this page (right below the ride title) and enter your information. If you cannot make the ride, you do not need to unregister.

Weather - Showers or more severe weather will cancel the ride.  Ride cancellation will be announced in the comments section at least two hours before start time and the ride leaders will not be at the start.

If you have questions, please contact the Ride Leaders.

Why ride indoors? Skip spin class and join us for a Midweek Outdoor Riding in the Evening (MORE) Hills! MORE Hills typically occur Wednesday evenings from March to August at Steady and Moderate paces when Ride Leaders are available. Rides will be about 20 miles with a handful of steep or "pitchy" hills thrown in. It is a perfect way to add a little training for otherwise weekend riders without spending too much time.

Plan to arrive by 5:45pm in time to hear the route and safety briefing, and so we can roll out promptly at 6:00pm.  Bring lights in case we have any delays.

We will regroup at top of major hills for a reasonable time, but if you are too fast/slow for the majority, it will become self-paced. Stops will be brief. We want everyone to ride hard but to have fun and get back safely.

Please bring your own cue sheet. Please pack water, snack, and tools/tubes to fix a flat as always. Even though the majority of ride will be in daylight, please have your lights (both front and back) just in case of unforeseen holdups. There is no scheduled stop en route, but we can stop to refill bottles as necessary. Carrying an ORCA card and/or a phone in case of un-fixable mechanical is recommended.

Weather notice: In case of inclement weather, the ride leader will post a cancellation notice in the comments section below by 4:00pm day of the ride, and Ride Leaders will not be at the ride start.

Everyone is welcome, including those who aren't so sure about hill climbing.  BUT PLEASE BRING A SMILE AND GOOD ATTITUDE WITH YOU!  Yes, it's hilly.  Yes, it's hard!  But, seeing the view from the top is always rewarding :-).

          Assen WorldSBK Saturday, Sunday Schedule Reshuffled After Race 1 Canceled Due To Snow      Comment   Translate Page      

The weather in Assen has not been kind to WorldSBK. Exceptionally cold temperatures on Saturday caused problems for the Superpole session, but shortly after Superpole, it started to snow. That forced the organizers  to delay the start of Race 1, but after snow started to fall again, the rest of the action was canceled, meaning both WorldSBK Race 1 and the WorldSSP300 Last Chance Race were called off.

The cancelation of Race 1 means a new schedule for Sunday at Assen. The Superpole race has been canceled, with two full races to be held on Sunday instead. WorldSBK Race 1 will start at 11am CEST, while Race 2 will start at the normal time of 2pm CEST.

Below is the press release announcing the change:


WorldSBK Race 1 postponed due to weather condition in Assen

Unpredictable weather condition forces Saturday’s WorldSBK Race 1 to be postponed to Sunday

Following severe weather condition on Saturday afternoon during the Motul Dutch Round in Assen, the difficult decision was taken to postpone WorldSBK Race 1 to Sunday.


          2019 Assen World Superbike Race One Result: Race Abandoned Due To Snow      Comment   Translate Page      

World Superbike race one was postponed due to the snow and rain making it impossible to run a safe race. After a delay, the riders set up on the grid, half an hour late, only for the snow to come back in force, sending everyone back to their garages. As the time passed and the weather didn't improve, Michael van der Mark eventually came out and explained to the crowds in the grandstands that there would be no racing on Saturday. 

With a race postponement, Sunday will have a new schedule, but with three races per weekend, it isn't yet known what's going to happen.

          Neil Morrice: UK Racing Tips - Saturday 13 April 2019      Comment   Translate Page      
Jockeys ride horses

Neil Morrice gives us his best bets and tips for Saturday's racing from around the UK. Tips come your way from Bangor-on-Dee, Wolverhampton as well as the Newbury Spring Meeting and Ayr's Scottish National.

Ayr Scottish National

Coral Scottish Grand National Handicap Chase (Grade 3)

The Scots like nothing better than keeping their most cherished prize within home territory and that factor counts volumes for the prospects of GERONIMO proving he is the chief for trainer Sandy Thomson and jockey Rachael McDonald.

The eight-year-old has progressed at a rate of knots since Thomson sent him chasing this season and both his successes from just four outings came at this track.

Although it's worrying that he's a relatively inexperienced performer, there's no doubting his credentials in every other department. He will love the ground, the fences and the course.

Nicky Richards fields a powerful twin spearhead from his Greystoke base and though CHIDSWELL may start at shorter odds it's TAKINGRISKS that makes more appeal as a possible winner. He's won over hurdles here this season and over fences last March, and can boast a defeat by just half a length by the smart VINTAGE CLOUDS on good ground at Haydock.

BEWARE THE BEAR has earned his burden of 11st 12lb as the top weight stayed on strongly to thwart Vintage Clouds in the Ultima at the Cheltenham Festival. He's gone up 8lb in the weights but remains an unexposed improver that has to be taken seriously.

VINTAGE CLOUDS has been a captain of industry because after his hard race in the Ultima he went to the Grand National only to exit at the first. If the grey were to win this his connections might look upon that early departure as having proved a blessing in disguise. The problem is, Sue Smith's gelding is 9lb higher than when finishing third in this 12 months ago.

At protracted odds, the massive BLUE FLIGHT is worth considering. Nigel Twiston-Davies has won this with a relative novice in the past and has a similar type on his hands in the six-year-old who after beating the smart Black Corton at Kelso ran well in defeat at the same course three weeks ago.

Neil Morrice's Predicted Finish
First: GERONIMO
Second: Blue Flight
Third: Beware The Bear
Fourth: Vintage Clouds
Fifth: Takingrisks

CPMS Scottish Champion Hurdle (Grade 2)

This Limited Handicap often falls into the lap of a lightly weighted improver and Midnight Shadow was a classic example last year.

He landed the spoils carrying 10st 4lb and off that exact same weight DINO VELVET could be the answer this time.

Alan King, who also saddles REDICEAN, is torn between the two but Dino Velvet has the stronger claims taking stock of the fact that until now he's been an underachiever.

That comment certainly doesn't apply when you observe his successes from a declining mark at Market Rasen and Stratford. He's a strong traveller that enjoys coming from off the pace, and the fact that they always go lickety-split in this will play to his strengths.

Redicean finished fourth and behind Verdana Blue at Wincanton in November. He's put in some good efforts on the all-weather subsequently and doesn't look badly treated.

VERDANA BLUE and BRAIN POWER were not at home in the soft ground in the Champion Hurdle with the former nevertheless not disgraced in finishing fifth.

She's a mare with a touch of class that will appreciate any drying in conditions, whilst her burden is eased by Conor Brace's 7lb claim.

MISTER FISHER gives Nicky Henderson a third card to play and this talented novice wasn't disgraced in the Supreme Novices' Hurdle. He's enjoyed a light season, had done nothing wrong before Cheltenham and could easily bounce back.

NUBE NEGRA has headed the ante-post market as a horse that's been campaigned with a spring programme in mind, and hailing from the Dan Skelton stable that is so adept at lining one up for the big day.

Neil Morrice's Predicted Finish
First: DINO VELVET
Second: Verdana Blue
Third: Nube Negra
Fourth: Mister Fisher
Fifth: Brain Power

Newbury Spring Meeting

Watership Down Stud Greenham Stakes (Group 3)

The sudden defection through injury of Too Darn Hot has left this traditional 2,000 Guineas trial wide open. John Gosden's colt would have 12lb and upwards in hand of the others on the official ratings, leaving HELLO YOUMZAIN as the one that sets the standard on form from last year. The Kevin Ryan-trained colt makes the long journey from North Yorkshire as the winner of two of his three career starts, culminating in a clear cut triumph over Queen Of Bermuda in a Group 2 at Madison's-Laffitte.

BOITRON appeals as the likely spearhead of Richard Hannon's assault on this, courtesy of wins in his first three juvenile starts and a creditable fourth in a Group 1 at Longchamp in October, beaten two and three-quarter lengths by Royal Marine.

MAGIC J is perhaps the darkest in the field as punters have just one Yarmouth race from which to assess him. On that occasion the US$950,000 purchase looked a useful prospect as he travelled smoothly throughout and produced a good turn of foot to put the race to bed. He's by the much-vaunted sire Scat Daddy, and it's impossible to know how good he is.

MOHAATHER has winning form over this course and distance last October. In that Group 3 Marcus Tregoning's colt overcame traffic problems to dispose of Azano by a length and a half with his jockey looking to have plenty more horse under him if required.

The opinion Tom Dascombe has of GREAT SCOT was mirrored in that trainer's decision to pitch the colt into the Group 1 Racing Post Trophy in October in which he finished a respectable fifth, beaten only one and a quarter lengths by the winner Magna Grecia.

Neil Morrice's Predicted Finish
First: MOHAATHER
Second: Hello Youmzain
Third: Boitron
Fourth: Magic J
Fifth: Great Scot

Dubai Duty Free Stakes (Registered As The Fred Darling Stakes) (Group 3)

It's so refreshing to see a competitive field for the 1,000 Guineas trial which for the two least experienced in the field, DANCING VEGA and MODERN MILLIE, makes it a step into the dream factory. However, both these individuals make abundant appeal.

DANCING VEGA made an impressive winning debut at Doncaster in October when she humbled subsequent Listed race winner Blue Gardenia by four lengths. The dogs have barked Ralph Beckett's filly for several days now.

MODERN MILLIE was similarly impressive in landing a Leicester maiden on her debut for Mick Channon last autumn, making up her ground steadily and comfortably beating Dancing Rave by half a length. She hails from a stable that saddled the winner of this 12 months ago and has won her preparatory gallops with a taking turn of foot. That suggests she's trained on, but how good she is impossible to gauge.

David Elsworth must never be underestimated and the veteran handler has a serious contender in DANDHU. This filly started her career inauspiciously but made great strides through the 2018 campaign to ultimately finish second, beaten a length and three-quarters, by Just Wonderful in a Group 2 on the Rowley Course at Newmarket. She has a smart change of gear and was a shade unlucky not to nearly win that day.

MUCHLY has the services of Frankie Dettori and showed ability on both two-year-old starts for John Gosden. She opened her account at this course at the back end, and that narrow verdict over Lady Adelaide was endorsed when the latter went one better on her next outing.

ICONIC CHOICE showed herself to be a progressive juvenile by winning three of her four races. The crescendo came when she landed a Listed heat over this course and distance for Tom Dascombe in October.

Neil Morrice's Predicted Finish
First: MODERN MILLIE
Second: Dandhu
Third: Dancing Vega
Fourth: Muchly
Fifth: Iconic Choice

Dubai Duty Free Finest Surprise Stakes ( Registered As The John Porter Stakes)

With his outstanding record at this course, it's hard to look past YOUNG RASCAL who is one to follow this season and can take high rank amongst the older middle-distance performers. Although he came up short in the Derby, he was unbeaten in four other starts including a dead heat with Morando here in October.

The year older DEFOE has also given his best at Newbury, winning the corresponding race 12 months ago impressively. He finished second in two Group 1s and when contesting races from Group 2 down is a seven times winner from nine attempts. Returning from a lengthy break is unlikely the faze the five-year-old either.

MOOTASADIR is very hard to beat on an all-weather surface and will strip as fit as anything in the field after two clear cut triumphs on sand. However, he failed to win on either of his turf starts last summer.

MARMELO is a fascinating runner for local trainer Hughie Morrison, this being the six-year-old's first start since chasing home Cross Counter in the Melbourne Cup at Flemington in early November. He's a progressive individual and not to be underestimated.

With his horses in very good form Mark Johnston's COMMUNIQUE comes into the equation. A dual winner at this venue, he couldn't cut it on his final 2018 start here but Johnston is not averse to deriving abnormal improvement from this type of horse between the ages of three and four.

Neil Morrice's Predicted Finish
First YOUNG RASCAL
Second: Marmelo
Third: Defoe
Fourth: Communique
Fifth Mootasadir

Bangor-on-Dee Best Bets

Race 2: CARRICK ROADS (1)
Trainer: Colin Tizzard
Jockey: Jonjo O'Neill Jnr

The booking of rising star O'Neill takes the eye for CARRICK ROADS who is clearly getting better based on his defeat in a head bob at Fontwell in January. Freshened up by a break, his chance is boosted by Tizzard's decision to step him up markedly on the distance ladder.

Race 2: COMMIS D'OFFICE (3)
Trainer: Venetia Williams
Jockey: Charlie Deutsch

Another that can enjoy a profitable end of season campaign, COMMIS D'OFFICE was only grabbed late after trying to make all over a slightly shorter trip at Catterick. That represented his best run of the season and there's a good chance he can get onto an easy lead at this similarly easy track.

Wolverhampton Best Bets

Race 3: MARSHAL DAN (6)
Trainer: Heather Main
Jockey: Luke Morris

In a tightly-knit affair MARSHAL DAN has plenty going for him as he bids to consolidate a pleasing run over this seven furlongs at Lingfield last month. On that first outing of 2019, he stayed on to finish a length runner-up behind First Link and looking as if the race would bring him on. He has a good midfield draw from which to manoeuvre and take up an attacking position.

Race 6: LUCK OF CLOVER (12)
Trainer: Andrew Balding
Jockey: Martin Dwyer

As the only filly in the race LUCK OF CLOVER gets a handy allowance that she can utilise to good effect. She came from well off the pace to post a frame finish on her first outing of the year at Kempton and will be suited by this longer trip. Her stable is firing on all cylinders.

Formula One 2019: Season Preview

The F1 circuit heads to China this weekend for the 2019 Chinese Grand Prix, with the main race scheduled for Sunday the 14th of April.

The third race of the 2019 F1 season will take place at the Shanghai International Street Circuit this Sunday and we should be in for a cracker with Ferrari desperately trying to close the early-season gap on arch rivals Mercedes.

Chinese Grand Prix
Shanghai International Circuit
Sunday 14 April

To Win Race Outright
Charles Le Clerc 15/10
Sebastian Vettel 37/20

Lewis Hamilton 5/2
Valtteri Bottas 9/1
Max Verstappen 16/1
Pierre Gasly 80/1
Kimi Raikkonen 1000/1

Previous Race
It was going all so well for Ferrari out in Bahrain with the Prancing Stag looking set for a  one-two finish until Charles LeClerc experienced a mechanical issue and Sebastian Vettel spun out to gift Mercedes an unexpected one-two that saw Lewis Hamilton claim the race victory and Valtteri Bottas take second.

Ferrari did manage to salvage an ounce of respectability from the race with LeClerc nursing his car home for third and Vettel claiming fifth. Sandwiched between the two Ferraris was the Red Bull of Max Verstappen. There was a surprise in the Top 6 with rookie Lando Norris driving his McLaren to sixth place.

The remainder of the top ten featured a few household names with Kimi Raikkonen finishing in seventh and Sergio Perez claiming 10th. In between the two veterans were young guns Pierre Gasly (eighth) and Alexander Albon (ninth).

Track
The architectural wonder that is the Shanghai International circuit will play host to one of the most intriguing races in recent history. Mercedes had been the dominant team on the track for near on half-a-decade until their four Grand Prix winning streak was broken by Daniel Ricciardo last season, with the Australian lining up on the podium alongside Valtteri Bottas (2nd) and Kimi Raikkonen (3rd).

This is a tricky track with a lot of turns, but there is room to open up the taps with the 1.5 kilometres straight – situated between turns 13 and 14 - allowing drivers to really have a go before heading into the hairpin between turns 14 and 15, where sharp braking is a necessity if you want to avoid running off track.

Drivers will face 16 turns in total this weekend, with the trickiest of the bunch being the sequence between turns one to four, which have claimed their fair share of victims since the course first hosted a race back in 2004.

There's a bit of rainfall floating around Shanghai early this week but the current (*Written on Tuesday the 9th of April) weather forecast is suggesting that the weekend will consist of clear skies.

Value Bet

Podium Finnish - Kimmi Raikkonen - Yes - @50/1
We're going for the big reward from a very small stake this week backing Kimi Raikkonen to claim a podium finish out in China.

Look, this is a massive speculator as the former Ferrari man is now racing a car that is struggling to keep up with the three major teams. He'd need the cards to fall in his favour her, but if they do then the Finnish ace could well take advantage as he has a pretty decent record in Shanghai including last year's third-place finish.

To Win Race Outright - Sebastian Vettel @ 37/20
Ferrari seemed to have sorted out their speed issues in Bahrain and had it not been for a few mechanical gremlins and lapse in judgement while racing Hamilton, then the Prancing Stag may well have walked away with a one-two finish out in Bahrain.

While new boy LeClerc was the faster of the two drivers out in Bahrain, I suspect Vettel may deliver the bigger performance here. He hasn't tasted much success in China - only winning one Grand Prix back in 2009 - but he'll be determined to put that right this weekend.

Jockey rides horse

The glorious English spring - that time when the peak of the jumps season and beginning of the Flat season dovetail into a fusion of high-class horse racing from both ends of its spectrum - hits us full on this weekend as Ayr's Scottish National fixture intertwines with the Newbury Spring meeting.

All racing folk who reside north of the border regard the Scottish Grand National as the jewel in that country's racing crown, a statement of its sporting heritage and first run in 1858 when its 32 jumps were mainly stone walls.

Its first host was the now-defunct Bogside and its first winner The Elk... an inappropriate name in that when the contenders thunder round the final bend and into the home straight on good ground at Ayr on Saturday they travel faster than at any other National Hunt course in Britain.

Amongst its winners and the one widely regarded as its greatest was RED RUM, who remains the only horse to win the Aintree Grand National and the Scottish National in the same year, 1974.

And whilst a Tiger went on the prowl and roared to victory in the shape of TIGER ROLL at Aintree last weekend, at Ayr Nicky Henderson could saddle the on-the-day favourite through the growling presence of another Cheltenham Festival winner, BEWARE THE BEAR.

The bookmakers are on alert for a Bear attack from this rejuvenated nine-year-old who aside from his last gasp success in the Ultima Handicap Chase last month also scored at Cheltenham in January. A 9lb rise to a career-high mark of 160 means he will carry top weight of 11st 12lb in the four-miler, but Henderson is confident.

He enthuses: "He's done really well, he's in great shape and the addition of blinkers have helped him a lot. I think a slight change of tactics in not forcing the pace quite as much has helped him."

The Scottish National is backed up by the Scottish Champion Hurdle in which Henderson prevailed only once before with River Ceiriog in 1986, but this time around has a leading light in the mare VERDANA BLUE, who having hated the easy going in the Champion Hurdle will relish better underfoot conditions and is one for your notebook on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the first key pointers to the British Classics materialise at Newbury which hosts trials for both the 2,000 Guineas and 1,000 Guineas.

In the Group 3 Greenham Stakes, it will be a huge shock if TOO DARN HOT doesn't win, whatever weather conditions are prevalent at the Berkshire course.

John Gosden's unbeaten colt will bid to assert his position as favourite for the 2,000 Guineas, run at Newmarket three weeks later. He was the standout Juvenile of 2018 when his four successive victories culminated in the Group 1 Dewhurst Stakes in which he came home unchallenged under Frankie Dettori.

I can pass on a positive message regarding Mick Channon's MODERN MILLIE in the fillies' trial, the Fred Darling Stakes, a race that commemorates one of the greatest trainers Britain has produced.

In a race that could see Ralph Beckett's DANCING VEGA start amongst the favourites, MODERN MILLIE will offer value as she won just a minor race on her debut which is the only time she's appeared on the racecourse.

As a historic curtain raiser to a fantastic weekend that offers a bit of everything, the all-weather scene is brightened by Aidan O'Brien's decision to saddle a first runner at Chelmsford City tomorrow, when U S S MICHIGAN puts his Kentucky Derby aspirations on the line in the inaugural running of the £60,000 Woodford Reserve Cardinal Stakes.

The trainer has also declared Naas nursery scorer ANTILLES in the mile event, which is the last of seven races in the European 'Road To the Kentucky Derby' series. Horses running in the series qualifiers gain points depending on their finishing position, with the highest earner, should they be entered, receiving an invitation to compete in the Kentucky Derby on May 4.

The other horse eligible for Churchill Downs is SHIR KHAN, a novice stakes winner at Wolverhampton for Paul Cole.

O'Brien said: "Michigan is a big, long-striding cruiser and we always thought he would get a mile and further, and the right type for Churchill Downs.

"Last year was a good experience to witness it (the Kentucky Derby) and there are things we need to improve on."

If U S S MICHIGAN wins tomorrow he will receive 30 points in the 'Road to the Kentucky Derby' series, enough to catapult him to the head of the standings.

And so the bookies are braced for the possibility of one or more horses catapulting themselves towards the front of big race ante-post markets with a visually impressive display on another big weekend for racing in Britain.

Enjoy it, and wishing you many big winners!

          The Latest: Mississippi university escapes storm damage      Comment   Translate Page      

DALLAS (AP) — The Latest on a powerful storm system moving through the southern United States (all times local):

11:12 p.m.

Officials say there's some debris from a possible tornado but no injuries or building damage at Mississippi State University.

The 21,000-student university ordered students into basements late Saturday night as a tornado approached the campus in Starkville.

Residents report trees down and at least some minor structural damage to residential areas nearby, including some areas where students live off campus.

Mississippi State spokesman Sid Salter says university officials are still looking for damage, especially in outlying areas of campus. The debris on the campus may have been dropped by a tornado that had been confirmed on the ground southwest of the campus.

Heavy rains were also producing flash flooding in the area.

Starkville was full of visitors Saturday because Mississippi State held its spring football game and a baseball game.

6:15 p.m.

Authorities say a possible tornado has touched down in western Mississippi, causing damage to several businesses and vehicles.

John Moore, a forecaster with the National Weather Service in Jackson, says a twister was reported Saturday in the Vicksburg area of Mississippi and was indicated on radar. No injuries were reported.

News footage from the area showed shattered windows and rooftop debris from businesses, flooding in parking lots and cars with windows smashed out.

Moore tells The Associated Press by phone that meteorologists haven't yet confirmed it was a tornado. Severe storms crossing a big swath of the South, including parts of Louisiana and Mississippi, have knocked out power to thousands and caused some flash flooding. Damage also has been...

Significant severe weather threat for Louisiana, Mississippi on Saturday

A strong upper level trough and surface low pressure system will move from central Texas to eastern Arkansas Saturday afternoon through Sunday morning. An accompanying cold front will race across the central Gulf Coast. Warmth, humidity, instability and wind shear are all supportive of severe thunderstorms and these ingredients are in larger supply than they were last weekend when two tornadoes touched down in the 13 Parish, 3 County WBRZ Weather forecast area. We need to be prepared for this event as the potential for nasty storms is much higher than usual.

Showers and thunderstorms will start firing during the late afternoon hours on Saturday and will quickly intensify into the evening hours. Initially, individual storm cells or clusters will develop before gelling into a squall line late.

The Storm Prediction Center outlook has placed the northwest corner of the local forecast area in an unusual and significant 4/5, &ldquo;moderate risk&rdquo; for severe thunderstorms. This means that within the outlook area widespread severe thunderstorms are likely. Statistically, there is a 45 percent chance of experiencing a severe thunderstorm within 25 miles of any given point in that outlook area. The remainder of the area is in a 3/5 &ldquo;enhanced risk&rdquo; for severe weather where numerous severe thunderstorms are possible. Statistically, there is a 30 percent chance of experiencing a severe thunderstorm within 25 miles of any given point in that outlook area.

The main threats from any severe thunderstorms will be damaging wind gusts and tornadoes. The most likely timeframe for storms to turn severe will be late Saturday afternoon and evening. More specifically, we are targeting 4p Saturday to 1a Sunday for the worst weather.

Heavy rain is not expected to be a major problem in this scenario since the storm system is a fast mover. Downpours may occur with storms, but total amounts should be manageable.

The threat for strong storms will quickly end from west to east early Sunday morning, likely before dawn. Sunshine and cooler temperatures are anticipated for Sunday afternoon. Quiet weather will persist through Tuesday.


Don&rsquo;t be scared, be prepared: Stay in touch with the forecast this weekend, know your severe weather plan and have a way to receive alerts. Never rely on an outdoor warning siren; if that is your main way of hearing warnings, you have little hope of hearing them indoors. Have a NOAA Weather Radio in your home or business, and activate the free WBRZ WX App. on your Apple or Android device.

Identify the safest place in your home. Often a small room, on the lowest floor, away from windows, near the center of the house is your best option. If you live in a mobile home, you should leave and go to a sturdy structure when a watch is issued, and remain there until the threat is over. When a warning issued, put on hard-soled shoes, go to your safe shelter and cover your head until the threat passes. Also, leash up your pets and bring them along so you are not separated.

The WBRZ Weather Team is here for you, on every platform. Your weather updates can be found on News 2, wbrz.com, and the WBRZ WX App. on Apple and Android devices. Follow WBRZ Weather on Facebook and Twitter for even more weather updates while you are on the go.

MD 0332 CONCERNING TORNADO WATCH 55...56... FOR EASTERN MISSISSIPPI...WESTERN AND CENTRAL ALABAMA
MD 0332 Image

Mesoscale Discussion 0332
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
1101 PM CDT Sat Apr 13 2019

Areas affected...Eastern Mississippi...Western and Central Alabama

Concerning...Tornado Watch 55...56...

Valid 140401Z - 140600Z

The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 55, 56 continues.

SUMMARY...A severe threat will likely continue into the early
overnight period as a line moves eastward into western Alabama. A
tornado threat, wind damage and hail can be expected with the line.

DISCUSSION...The latest radar imagery shows a well-developed linear
MCS across eastern Mississippi extending southward into southern
Mississippi and far southeastern Louisiana. Surface analysis ahead
of the line into western Alabama shows surface dewpoints in the mid
to upper 60s F. RAP analysis is estimating that MLCAPE values are in
the 1000 to 1500 J/kg range. In addition to a favorable
thermodynamic environment, the RAP shows a 50 to 60 kt low-level jet
oriented parallel to the convective line which has helped the line
to become more organized over the last couple of hours. The
low-level jet is creating strong low-level shear profiles which will
support a tornado threat with rotating cells embedded in the line.
Both the northeastern Mississippi and Mobile, AL WSR-88D-VWPs have a
looped hodograph with 0-3 km storm relative helicity in access of
500 m2/s2 which suggests a few strong tornadoes will be possible.
Wind damage will be likely with the stronger portions of the line as
well.

          Here are the 8 clothing companies that could take Patagonia's place as the new keeper of the 'Midtown Uniform'      Comment   Translate Page      

Hedge Fund Guys

  • Following Patagonia's recent decision to be more selective with the number of new clients it will brand apparel for, a market gap has opened for other clothing companies to work with Wall Street and Silicon Valley firms.
  • Patagonia's fleece vests are a key part of finance bros' typical outfit, known as the 'Midtown Uniform' — slacks, a dress shirt, and a vest. 

From the disruptive nature of new technology, to the rising number of agile competitors in the space, Wall Street's list of concerns grows bigger every day.

However, arguably a bigger issue was raised across trading floors earlier this month: The future of the 'Midtown Uniform'.

Patagonia, a critical part of many Wall Street employees' daily outfits, recently decided it would be more selective with the number of new clients it will brand apparel for. The company is focusing on working with "more mission-driven companies that prioritize the planet", potentially excluding some Wall Street and Silicon Valley firms. The American clothing company's fleece vests are an integral part of what is commonly referred to as the 'Midtown Uniform': slacks, a dress shirt, and a vest.

So an opportunity has risen for another clothing company to be the go-to outfitter for the 20-something bankers, hedge funders and technologists. 

Here are eight companies that have the potential to fill the void left by Patagonia based on conversations with those in the industry and the reporter's own personal experience.

Vineyard Vines

For many, this is a natural fit to replace Patagonia. Founded in tony Martha's Vineyard, Vineyard Vines is the male equivalent of Lily Pullitzer. The brand is also already the clothing of choice for many hedge funders during their weekend trips to the Hamptons. 

 



Helly Hansen

The Norwegian clothing company might be the perfect foreign substitute for Patagonia. With its wide range of cold-weather apparel, there's a good chance finance bros might already have some Helly Hansen tucked away in their ski houses. 

 



Arc'teryx

The Vancouver-based company has made big strides on the West Coast, which is home to most of the big tech companies that have their own twist on the 'Midtown Uniform' (jeans and a t-shirt instead of slacks and a button down).  However, one problem this pick might have is the fact finance bros seem unlikely to buy from a clothing company they'll struggle to pronounce.

          Texas Storms Leave Two Children Dead, Several People Hurt      Comment   Translate Page      
Two children were killed and about a dozen people were injured in Texas Saturday after powerful storms spawned at least one suspected tornado and damaged several homes, authorities said. The Angelina County Sheriff’s Office said an 8-year-old and a 3-year-old died when strong winds toppled a tree onto the back of their family’s car in Lufkin while it was in motion. Capt. Alton Lenderman said the parents, who were in the front seats, were not injured. Lufkin is about 115 miles (185 kilometers) northeast of Houston. Additional information was not immediately available. Large storm system In Central Texas, Robertson County Sheriff Gerald Yezak told The Associated Press a suspected tornado hit the small city of Franklin, overturning mobile homes and damaging other residences. Franklin is about 125 miles (200 kilometers) south of Dallas. Two people were hospitalized for injuries not thought to be life-threatening, while others were treated at the scene for minor injuries, Yezak said. Some people had to be extricated from their homes. National Weather Service meteorologist Monique Sellers said they’ve received reports of downed trees, as well as damage to buildings and a transmission tower. The storms are part of a large system moving through the southern United States, knocking out power to thousands and causing some flash flooding. The weather service said the system is expected to shift to the Ohio Valley and the Southeast on Sunday. Possible tornado in Mississippi Meteorologist John Moore said a possible twister touched down Saturday in the Vicksburg, Mississippi, area. No injuries have been reported, but officials said several businesses and vehicles were damaged. Winds of up to 60 mph (96.56 kph) were reported in Cherokee County, Texas, damaging two homes in Alto but not injuring anyone. Alto is situated about 140 miles (225 kilometers) north of Houston.

          Assen WorldSBK Saturday, Sunday Schedule Reshuffled After Race 1 Canceled Due To Snow      Comment   Translate Page      

The weather in Assen has not been kind to WorldSBK. Exceptionally cold temperatures on Saturday caused problems for the Superpole session, but shortly after Superpole, it started to snow. That forced the organizers  to delay the start of Race 1, but after snow started to fall again, the rest of the action was canceled, meaning both WorldSBK Race 1 and the WorldSSP300 Last Chance Race were called off.

The cancelation of Race 1 means a new schedule for Sunday at Assen. The Superpole race has been canceled, with two full races to be held on Sunday instead. WorldSBK Race 1 will start at 11am CEST, while Race 2 will start at the normal time of 2pm CEST.

Below is the press release announcing the change:


WorldSBK Race 1 postponed due to weather condition in Assen

Unpredictable weather condition forces Saturday’s WorldSBK Race 1 to be postponed to Sunday

Following severe weather condition on Saturday afternoon during the Motul Dutch Round in Assen, the difficult decision was taken to postpone WorldSBK Race 1 to Sunday.

World Superbike race one was postponed due to the snow and rain making it impossible to run a safe race. After a delay, the riders set up on the grid, half an hour late, only for the snow to come back in force, sending everyone back to their garages. As the time passed and the weather didn't improve, Michael van der Mark eventually came out and explained to the crowds in the grandstands that there would be no racing on Saturday. 

With a race postponement, Sunday will have a new schedule, but with three races per weekend, it isn't yet known what's going to happen.

          This Sci-Fi Plan To Beat Rising Seas Could Change The Way We Live – If It Works      Comment   Translate Page      
An illustration of what Oceanix's floating city would look like.

The world’s first floating farm will soon welcome aboard 40 cows. Built in Rotterdam harbor in the Netherlands, the “cow garden” and high-tech dairy farm are nearing completion.

“The building is as good as ready, we are now installing and testing the machines, and in four weeks the cows will arrive,” says Peter Beladon, the developer behind the farm. The floating farm plans to recycle cow waste, grow grass, produce milk and yogurt onsite, harvest rainwater and use its own solar energy.

This floating prototype may not be as fantastical as it sounds, even in a country where pastureland stretches for miles around. As sea levels rise, and there is ever less land for a growing urban population, this farm could be a precursor to entire floating cities in the future.

The world's first floating farm in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. 

Last week, UN-Habitat, tasked with improving the world’s urban future, brought together 70 people – from engineers and architects to Hollywood executives – to discuss the feasibility of making science fiction reality: Building an entirely self-sustaining, floating city.

For advocates, these water-based communities are an exciting, innovative solution to climate change, sea-level rise and an increasingly urban population seeking affordable housing. To others, floating cities are a costly and untested distraction from the very real work we need to do in existing cities to mitigate against climate change devastation.

By 2050, nearly 70 percent of the world population is predicted to live in cities, up from just over half today. Not only will this urbanization put huge pressure on cities’ housing, transport, energy and infrastructure, but also this move is happening in the context of rising sea levels and an increase in extreme weather events that threaten cities across the world.   

“People move into cities drawn by jobs, education and opportunities but too often end up living in slums,” said Maimunah Mohd Sharif, UN-Habitat’s executive director. “Climate change and rising sea levels are very real, and we have to look for innovations that are resilient. I think that the floating cities could be one of the innovative solutions… to provide housing for the vulnerable or climate refugees.”

The UN-Habitat event saw a new development company, Oceanix, launch its vision for a floating city: six hexagonal platforms around a central harbor, sustaining 10,000 people. Glossy images feature people on paddle boats, farming a plant-based diet or meditating in a bamboo spiritual center.

With a design inspired by lily-pads and the efficiently-structured cells of a honeycomb, the 75-hectare city would be anchored to the seabed by biorock, currently used to grow artificial reefs, with infrastructure to collect rainwater and de-salinate sea water. Residents would be able to grow and catch their own food and recycle their waste; the city would be powered by renewables, Oceanix claims, adding it would be designed to withstand storms.

An illustration of the floating city as seen from underwater.

To come up with the proto, the private, for-profit company is partnering with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and with Bjarke Ingels of the Danish architectural firm BIG – which has previously created floating shipping container housing for students.

“We are proposing a model for sustainable urbanism, a model we believe we can do on the water where we won’t have issues with flooding,” said founder and chief executive of OceanixMarc Collins Chen. He first started investigating cost-effective solutions for rising sea levels as a government executive 12 years ago in Tahiti.

Nobody has yet constructed a floating city yet, although the organizations Oceanix is working with have made a number of ocean infrastructures all over the world. “There is no lack of expertise – nobody has put all the pieces together and that’s what we are hoping Oceanix will do,” said Collins Chen.

The company says it has offers from investors and host cities for a small-scale prototype and expects to make an announcement “in a few weeks.”

Collins Chen said they are aiming to build affordable housing first. “Once you’ve developed a pipeline, there’s nothing to say you can’t go up the scale, but if you build for the wealthiest, it’s difficult to drive prices down,” he says.

No costing figures have been released, but Collins Chen claims the city is achievable by making savings on three areas: using “practically free” water rather than expensive land, constructing modular units in factories rather than on-site and regulating the developer’s profits.

Some experts believe we should at least give a floating city a go. Nick Makris, director of the center for ocean engineering at MIT, which is a partner in the project, thinks the first Oceanix design could work, but only if it is based in a sheltered, harbor-like environment where it’s less exposed to extreme weather. 

“When you look at what was proposed, a lot of people said it’s fantastic and science fiction-y,” he says. “But from the perspective of a marine engineer, I would say that what was presented is doable in certain environments.”

But others in the field of climate change are far more skeptical – especially at the rush to throw resources into high-tech, untested ideas which don’t address the underlying causes of climate change.

“We need to work intensely on reducing greenhouse gas emissions, to reduce the damage that will happen, and on preparing our cities for damage that will occur regardless of our best efforts,” said Michael Gerrard, director of the Sabin Center for Climate Change Law at Columbia Law School.

“Floating cities might be able to accommodate tens or hundreds of thousands of people, but not the hundreds of millions or billions of people who may be displaced by climate change later in the century,” he added.

Floating cities could also present environmental challenges, said Professor Martin Siegert, co-director of the Grantham Institute of Climate Change and the Environment. “There is the issue of water quality and circulation,” he said. “We see every year in Venice algal blooms that represent problems in health and air quality, as well as water quality. Perhaps we can do more than we currently do, but I’d be surprised if this was a solution to what is a very big problem; habitability of coastal regions under storm surges.”

A further challenge is the base of the floating structure. It’s made from concrete, which carries pretty heavy environmental impacts. “The concrete platform is cost-efficient [and] one of the options we have talked about during these early phases of concept, but as we move forward we may explore other options,” said Alana Goldweit, project leader at BIG and designer for Oceanix City.

She added that the six-sided shape and sea-floor anchorage will provide stability in a storm, but there are other options for truly bad weather. “We understand when there’s a severe storm people won’t be around their terraces on the fourth floor of the building,” she says. “We have designed a refuge room in every two-hectare neighborhood that can accommodate well over 300 residents.”

The design team at BIG say that the first prototype city could be built within the next two years – but, to the disappointment of the floating farm developers in the Netherlands, its plant-based community will not be making space for cows.

Sun, 2019-04-14 00:18

RIYADH: Inclement weather affecting parts of Saudi Arabia have caused flooding in some areas, prompting rescue operations by the Directorate for Civil Defense, the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) said on Saturday.
In Riyadh province, several roads were rendered inaccessible to vehicular traffic and authorities were working around the clock to get them cleared.
Rain showers with hail led to flooding in some valleys, roads and neighborhoods, particularly in the governorates of Qawaiya, Al-Kharj, Al-Dulm and Shaqra.
Lieutenant Colonel Mohammed Al-Hammadi, Riyadh Civil Defense media spokesman, said a number of people trapped in several areas had to be rescued.

He urged the public to remain careful and to observe instructions and safety guidelines that had been issued.
He also called upon people to stay away from water-logged areas, electricity sources, valleys and flood waters, as well as to avoid open spaces near trees during lightning. Objects moving during strong winds also posed a risk, he added.
Civil Defense in Riyadh had taken all precautions and was ready to deal with heavy rains and floods, the SPA reported him as saying.
Heavy rain also fell in the western mountain region of Asir region, the General Authority for Meteorology and Environmental Protection said on Saturday.
The weather agency warned of thunderstorms actively associated with dust storms in Najran region, particularly in the governorates of Sharurah and Habuna and nearby places.

          Officials prepare for severe weather for the final round of the Masters      Comment   Translate Page

          Runners, Officials Getting Ready for 123rd Boston Marathon      Comment   Translate Page      

As runners lined up to pick up their bibs for the Boston Marathon, many were thinking about the race they've prepared for so long.

"This is the Mecca of running, and this is what everybody strives for, works hard all year long to have this. It's a blessing, it's a pure blessing," said Laura Fenster of Fresno, California.

Runners and their families and friends enjoyed the nice weather on Saturday, many of them heading to the Finish Line for pictures.

"The weather is amazing. This morning it was raining, now it's the sunshine. It's great. Boston is amazing," said Thais Moura of Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Moura, who is in town from South America, said this is a dream come true.

"I have been pursuing my qualifying time, and I did that. And I'm going to be running Monday. I have goose bumps now... I have no words for that," she said.

There are many first-timers in town, including Maria Payne from San Antonio, Texas. She says she's just trying to enjoy the moment.

"Look at this city. This city is fantastic, every store... the flowers in the windows. I think Boston does this right," she said.

Ana Croger, of Brisbane, Australia, is in Boston for the first time to run the marathon.

"I've been to a Red Sox game, a city tour, I've been to the Expo, it's been crazy," Croger said.

Kathy Linenberger, of San Diego, California, is also visiting Boston for the first time to run in the marathon.

"I've been waiting many, many years to come to Boston and run the marathon," Linenberger said. "This is my first time, I'm just thrilled."

Linenberger is thrilled, and thinking about the weather.

"We were at the 5K this morning," she said. "We tested out our rain jackets. We came prepared. I have 55 layers at least, 16 ponchos, rubber gloves. We've got everything because we knew if we brought all that, it wouldn't rain."

The weather on Marathon Monday is one of the hot topics. After last year's wind-swept rain and cold temperatures, this year's race could be gloomy as well.

"I did it last year, so there's absolutely nothing nature can send us that's worse than last year," Chris Tobias, of Baltimore, Maryland, said.

Officials are also preparing for the marathon, and the possibility of bad weather.

"The uncontrollable is always out there," said Sean Quirk, head coach of the Boston Cannons. "Last year was really tough with the weather, so expecting it to be a little bit better this year hopefully."

There are some extra precautions race organizers have announced because of the potential for rough weather, including no delay this year between Waves 3 and 4. That's to lessen the amount of time Wave 4 runners have to wait in the Athlete's Village before they begin.

And along the course, there will be extra gear and facilities to help runners and volunteers who may be struggling.

But there's no talk of postponing the race.

"The marathon is run on Patriots Day, or it's not run," said Tom Grilk, CEO of the Boston Athletic Association.

There will be a massive amount of security in place, but there are no credible threats to the event.

"We know what happened before," said Boston Police Commissioner William Gross. "Let's be each other's eyes and ears. This is our city, our marathon, let's look out for each other."


          Schwarber Restrained by Teammates After Controversial Call      Comment   Translate Page      

A controversial call ended Saturday’s game between the Chicago Cubs and Los Angeles Angels, and outfielder Kyle Schwarber was steamed after the contest.

Schwarber, who was up with runners on second and third with two out, believed he held up his swing on a 3-2 pitch from Angels reliever Cody Allen. The third base umpire did not agree however, calling Schwarber out and ending the game.

That did not sit well with the slugger, and he made sure to get his money’s worth:

Schwarber was restrained by several teammates, including Javier Báez and Jason Heyward, and was taken by teammates from the playing field after the game.

The Cubs and Angels will wrap up their series on Sunday, weather permitting, at Wrigley Field.

          Rome      Comment   Translate Page      
So over the past 15 years or so, my vacations have pretty much been centered around wherever my kid’s competitions have taken him to. So now that he’s finally off to college, I’m finally taking advantage of being able to travel on my own time. We managed to snag a $315 RT between SFO and Rome FCO (brief stop in Frankfurt) in late April for 8 days, which was too good to pass up. I think the weather should be ok. I’ve been in Rome once before, in a November, only for 1.5 days. Stayed close to Termini. I’ve seen most of the major stuff in Rome in brief, so looking for ideas for day trips this time. Pisa/Florence worth it? Naples? Pompeii? Amalfi Coast? We won’t be driving. Probably staying close to Termini again even though parts of the area is pretty yucky. Never tried Airbnb overseas before, not sure if it is worth it or not. No need to go to Venice or Milan, trying to stick mostly to the south and middle if possible. Sicily is probably too far away.

          Summit Number 100 . . . Sort of.      Comment   Translate Page      
-- Susan, every other Sunday

One year ago last week, I finished chemotherapy treatments for breast cancer, and one month later (eleven months ago, almost to the day) I uprooted my life in the United States and moved to Japan to attempt to climb 100 Japanese mountains in a single year.

Today, I climbed what would have been the 100th mountain on my list . . .

No, not this one. Though I did this one already too.


. . . except that I climbed it earlier this year. Since I already stood on the summit once, I don't get to count the peak again (although I suspect that climbing it twice does make it count as a 500-meter summit instead of a 250-meter one).

The mountain in question also happens to be one of my favorites: Mt. Inari.

Foxes (or, more properly, kitsune) are Inari's messengers in Japan


This small but important mountain stands in Fushimi, just south of Kyoto, and is home to Fushimi Inari Shrine.

Main gate, Fushimi Inari Shrine


The shrine is dedicated to Inari, a popular Shintō deity best known as the patron kami of rice, fertility, sake, swords, and foxes (though that's not a definitive list). As the largest of the thousands of Inari shrines in Japan, Fushimi Inari Taisha (Shrine) is an important site of Shintō worship.

It's also a well-known tourist attraction, drawing thousands of Japanese and foreign visitors alike, in part because of the thousands of bright vermillion torii (sacred Shintō gates) that line the slopes of the mountain, connecting the worship halls at the bottom with a number of sub-shrines and the sacred summit of Mt. Inari.

Torii on the slopes of Mt. Inari


While most visitors remain near the lower levels of the mountain, touring the worship halls and sub-shrines on more level ground,

Subshrines - no climbing required

my friend Laura and I headed up through the thousands of torii, climbing more than fifty flights of stairs on our way to the summit shrine.

At the summit of Mt. Inari


And, because what goes up must come back down, we returned the way we came.


More torii. More stairs. More mountains.

Despite my six previous visits to the shrine, I always find something new and interesting to see on Mt. Inari. Hundreds of guardian statues line the slopes. While most are foxes, guardian lions also abound.

Not a fox in any sense of the word.

As do a variety of different sizes and styles of torii, some of the older ones even made of stone.

Wood and stone torii on Mt. Inari.


Today's hike served as a warmup for tomorrow's "soft 100" climb -- another mountain I'd also normally consider far too small to qualify as one of my hundred peaks. (In fact, it may not have a peak, per se, at all.) However, its historical importance makes it worth climbing--and, weather permitting, I'll follow tomorrow's climb with another, higher summit on Monday morning, finishing the climbs for good.

Only a lawyer would do the final climb in triplicate.

But hey...at least soon I'll be back to blogging about people killing each other, instead of about the mountains killing me.

Cherry blossoms on Mt. Inari - a wonderful celebration of the spring.


Have a wonderful and restful Sunday!





          Potential for severe weather in central Ohio on Sunday      Comment   Translate Page      

There is potential for severe weather in central Ohio on Sunday.

The NOAA National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center has parts of the area under an Enhanced Risk for stronger storms.

Right now the biggest threat for central Ohio is damaging winds but some hail and possibly an isolated tornado (likely a spin-up along a line of storms) cannot be ruled out.

The SPC gives Southern and SE Ohio a 30% chance for significant weather within 25 miles of a given point.

The timing of the event looks tricky.

That is because some showers and storms will be possible early in the day with another batch redeveloping in the afternoon.

If the sunlight is low, that will limit our chances but any clearing we get will destabilize the atmosphere enough to spark off some stronger storms.

As of Saturday evening, it looks like the best chance for any stronger storms will likely be in the 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. time frame.


          2 children dead, many homes damaged as storms pummel South      Comment   Translate Page      

DALLAS — Powerful storms that rolled across the South on Saturday spawned at least two suspected tornadoes, damaged homes and killed two children in Texas, authorities said.

The Angelina County Sheriff's Office said an 8-year-old and a 3-year-old died when strong winds toppled a tree onto the back of their family's car in Lufkin while it was in motion. Capt. Alton Lenderman said the parents, who were in the front seats, were not injured.

Lufkin is about 115 miles northeast of Houston. Additional information was not immediately available.

In Central Texas, Robertson County Sheriff Gerald Yezak told The Associated Press a tornado hit the small city of Franklin, overturning mobile homes and damaging other residences. Franklin is located about 125 miles south of Dallas.

The National Weather Service said preliminary information showed an EF-3 tornado touched down with winds of 140 mph. Crews will continue to survey the damage over the next few days.

Two people were hospitalized for injuries not thought to be life-threatening, while others were treated at the scene for minor injuries, Yezak said. Some people had to be extricated from their homes.

Weather service meteorologist Monique Sellers said they've received reports of downed trees, as well as damage to buildings and a transmission tower.

The storms are part of a large system moving through the southern United States, knocking out power to thousands and causing some flash flooding. The weather service said the system is expected to shift to the Ohio Valley and the Southeast on Sunday.

Meteorologist John Moore said a possible twister touched down Saturday in the Vicksburg, Mississippi, area. No injuries have been reported, but officials said several businesses and vehicles were damaged.

Winds of up to 60 mph were reported in Cherokee County, Texas, damaging two homes in Alto but not injuring anyone. Alto is situated about 140 miles north of Houston.

          Boston Marathon organizers prepare for another rainy race      Comment   Translate Page      

With the possibility of a repeat of last year's cold, rainy race day, Boston Marathon organizers are making changes to Monday's run.

Those changes are aimed at keeping runners and the race's army of volunteers warm and dry.

That's because of the forecast the Boston Athletic Association shared with runners in an advisory, saying there's "the potential for persistent rain, wind, and cooler temperatures."

Or, pretty much a rerun of last year's miserable race.

Among the changes, the organizers are adding heat to staging areas, volunteers will have ponchos and hand warmers, and medical stations are preparing for "a potential overflow of runners," CNN affiliate 4WBZ in Boston reported.

Wave 4, the last group to start, will begin right after Wave 3 ends, the BAA said in its advisory. The new schedule does away with the previously planned 25-minute delay between waves, reducing the time runners would have to wait in bad weather.

Boston may be in for heavy rain and possibly a thunderstorm, according to the National Weather Service, and wind gusts could reach 28 mph. The chance of rain is 90% as of Saturday morning, but the forecast is calling for warmer temperatures than when the BAA issued its advisory.

Come what may, though, the race will be held on April 15.

"The marathon is run on Patriots' Day or it's not run," BAA CEO Tom Grilk said Friday, according to 4WBZ.
