Let’s start and end this post with the weather!
A report obtained by the Perspective Research Department says that climate change might alter atmospheric conditions so that future hurricanes may be pushed away from the East Coast, according to a study published Monday by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science.
The warming caused by greenhouse gases—thought to be the result of human activities such as burning fossil fuels—could redirect atmospheric winds that steer hurricanes.
By the next century, the study’s authors report, atmospheric winds over the Atlantic could blow more directly from west to east during hurricane season, pushing storms away from the United States.
Well……………………….., have ya seen any hurricanes yet this year?

A Freedom of Information request has revealed there were over 300,000 attempts to access pornography on the Parliamentary Network in the last year alone.

Responding to a Freedom of Information request from the Huffington Post, the House of Commons said users of the Parliamentary Network – including MPs and staff – repeatedly tried to access websites classed as pornographic.

 Ariel Castro, 53, was found hanging in his cell around 9:20 p.m. Tuesday at the Correctional Reception Center in Orient, located south of Columbus in central Ohio, JoEllen Smith, Department of Rehabilitation and Correction spokeswoman, said early Wednesday.
Castro was in protective custody because of the notoriety of his case, meaning he was checked every 30 minutes, but was not on suicide watch, Smith said. She said suicide watch entails constant observation.
Too bad…………….., seems he took the easy way out!

Frederik Pohl, a prolific American science fiction author who published scores of stories including the acclaimed 1977 novel Gateway and collaborated with some of the genre’s leading figures, has died, according to his literary agent.
images“We’re saddened to tell his friends and readers that Fred went to the hospital in respiratory distress this morning and died this afternoon,” according to a statement posted late on Monday on the author’s website.
Pohl, who also published poetry and served as a literary editor, is best known for his 1977 novel Gateway, which told the story of a space station hidden in an asteroid. The novel won four top science fiction awards, including the Hugo Award, and was later adapted into a computer game.
He was 93.

april_shower_24978_lgAs the public pools close and the summer fairs and exhibitions wind down, Canadians start to think about the inevitable.
“The definition of a Canadian is one who worries about winter before summer is even over,” says David Phillips, a senior climatologist with Environment Canada.
So is there much to worry about, weather-wise, this fall? Phillips says no.

Environment Canada is fairly confident that September will roll out much like the summer, with western and far eastern regions enjoying above-normal temperatures, and Central Canada experiencing normal temperatures.
Toward the end of November, even more of the country will be warmer than normal, with the exception of the far north, where there will be a band of colder weather.
But for winter, the jury is out. Western Canadian winter conditions are determined by the temperature of the currents in the Pacific: A La Niña condition means colder waters and colder winters, while an El Niño system means a warmer winter.
Phillips says the verdict so far is “La Nada.” Environment Canada just doesn’t know right now which way it’s going to swing this year
