The Weather Channel guy who’s stuck in Naples sounds like he’s having heavy remorse about the assignment. SW FL is so fucked.

My son E-mailed this morning to say he would stay in Jacksonville with his mother, despite my urgings for him to leave.

Now, the National Weather Service has issued a Storm Surge Warning for Inland Duval County.

* CHANGES TO WATCHES AND WARNINGS:
- A Storm Surge Warning has been issued for Inland Duval

and

Major Hurricane Irma continues northwest away from the Northern Coast
of Cuba. Major Hurricane Irma continues to be a severe and extremely
dangerous hurricane. The latest forecast track takes Irma northward
over the far western part of the Florida Peninsula.

Irma is a large hurricane and will produce far-reaching effects
regardless of where the exact center of the storm moves. The forecast
track would support category 1 hurricane-force winds along the
I-75 corridor of northern Florida, with strong tropical storm force
winds with potential gusts to hurricane force further east and over
the coastal waters, as well as across southeast Georgia. This will
result in numerous downed trees and power lines, leading to power
outages.

forecast.weather.gov (long warning, including favourable conditions for tornadoes)

Much of the media’s hate towards the Clintons comes from grudges they’ve been nursing since years of breathless reporting about every “bombshell” and “development” in the Whitewater/Monicagate business ended with Bill leaving office with the highest approval rating since recording began.

Except the most powerful part of the storm is the part to the right of the track (hurricane’s winds + forward motion speed of the storm).

The core of the hurricane appears in that map to rake the entire west coast of the state, plus storm surge + wind driven waves on top of that.

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
———————————
STORM SURGE: The combination of a dangerous storm surge and the
tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by
rising waters moving inland from the shoreline. The water is
expected to reach the following HEIGHTS ABOVE GROUND if the peak
surge occurs at the time of high tide…

Cape Sable to Captiva…10 to 15 ft
Captiva to Ana Maria Island…6 to 10 ft
Card Sound Bridge through Cape Sable, including the Florida Keys…
5 to 10 ft
Ana Maria Island to Clearwater Beach, including Tampa Bay…
5 to 8 ft
North Miami Beach to Card Sound Bridge, including Biscayne Bay…
3 to 5 ft
South Santee River to Fernandina Beach…4 to 6 ft
Clearwater Beach to Ochlockonee River…4 to 6 ft
Fernandina Beach to Jupiter Inlet…2 to 4 ft
North of North Miami Beach to Jupiter Inlet…1 to 2 ft

Irma is no longer headed directly up our road at home so that’s something
Though a tornado did touch down in the next neighborhood over according to sunsentinel

Sorry to jump on the “message framing” bandwagon again, but this one is important:

Instead of saying: “believe in climate change”

Say: “Accept the reality of climate change”

Instead of saying “believe in science”

Say: “Accept scientific evidence” or “Accept scientific facts”

The trouble with “believe in” is that it a) opens up the durr hurr, science is a religion line of argument, and b) subconsciously reinforces the idea that scientific facts are only “beliefs” and therefore a matter of subjective opinion.

Consider the following hypothetical exchange:

Sane person: “trump’s government doesn’t believe in science”

Wingnut rebuttal: herp derp, libtards believe in science, real Americans believe in GOD. MAGA!!1!1!!

vs.

Sane person: “trump’s government doesn’t accept scientific facts”

Wingnut rebuttal: [some non-sequitur insult, or, the “smart idiot” types might try a gish gallop. But no “insta-talking-point” as effective or obvious as the one above]

Yeah, that’s called “body routing.” They’re trying to recruit people.

I’ve picketed Big Blue (that’s what we call the old Cedars of Lebanon building) before. One of my favorite ever pickets was there in the late 1990s. A bunch of us showed up, Scientology abandoned the street (can’t talk to all those evil suppressive persons, you know) and we walked up and down with our signs unhindered while they watched from behind the glass. One guy parked his car at the end of the street and started playing tunes. We had the best time!

I just found myself sitting here, wondering just how Cameron’s going to write an Avatar sequel, much less multiple sequels, that don’t end with “The Na’Vi get firebombed/nuked out of existence and the planet strip-mined.” He sort of wrote himself into a corner by presenting “unobtainium” as a material so valuable to the nations of Earth that the company mining it could do virtually anything it liked without worry of repercussions.

Nukes would be too messy.

Virus Bomb

Virus Bombs deploy a hideous genetically-engineered pathogen called the Life-Eater virus intended to exterminate all forms of life in an inhabited planet’s biosphere. The pathogen, once released in aerosol form from the Virus Bombs, is extraordinarily virulent, capable of infecting every living thing, including flora, fauna and even bacteria on an entire world in only solar minutes if 100% orbital dispersal is achieved. The pathogen can penetrate even sealed environment suits, including Power Armour. The virus is designed to violently lyse living cells, essentially causing infected organisms to “melt” into a contaminated soup of organic matter. Entire forests and other plant matter can be reduced to this sludge in a short period of time, and individual animals die excruciating deaths as their bodies rapidly decay around them. The incredibly rapid breakdown of organic matter results in the steady release of great volumes of highly flammable gas, much of it composed of methane. Eventually, as the contamination spreads across the surface of the world, a single spark, a single lightning strike, or an intentional incendiary event, will cause this gas to ignite, sweeping the planet with an apocalyptic, global firestorm. This incredible heat will scour the world’s surface back to bare rock as well as eradicate most of the remaining oxygen in the planet’s atmosphere if it was habitable by Terran life.

In some cases, the lifeless Dead Worlds that are all that remain of planets that have suffered a virus bombing still prove valuable to the Adeptus Mechanicus after their violent death. These planets may be transformed into Mining Worlds or even prepared for a new round of terraforming to make them habitable for Imperial colonists once more.

Russian meddling and clandestine influence obviously extend far beyond the presidential election last year. I’ve suspected for years, for example, that Russian money was behind the Texas secession movement’s amazing transition from running joke to serious political issue. Last year, nearly half of the Texas county Republican parties endorsed putting it on the ballot. Today’s Facebook revelations are smoking gun proof of that meddling.

Once the Trump infestation is cleared from the White House, there needs to be a comprehensive investigation of Russian political meddling at all levels, including its crucial role in conspiracy media and other right wing propaganda. Financial records should be checked, down to the level of local flunkies, and agents exposed and prosecuted. Soliciting or accepting foreign political contributions, including contributions in kind, is a criminal offense. The Republican Party is looking more and more like a criminal organization, eyeball deep in subversion. This can even rise to the level of treason in those cases, such as Jade Helm, where its members
have acted under Russian direction to incite violence against the United States.

In box office news, looks like It is a certified hit, likely on its way to blockbuster status. Against a production budget of $35 million, it’s already grossed over $100 million on its opening weekend, which is no small feat for an R-rated horror film. Doubtlessly helped by good word-of-mouth and positive critical reviews.

Add in marketing/distribution/promotion expenditures, I’d say this film is probably now in the black and everything from here on out is straight-up profit. Not bad at all for an opening weekend.

Not to mention that with people who’ve maybe never read the source novel, Stephen King’s gotta be smiling; I’m thinking that sales of the book will probably go up as well (anecdotally, I have a couple of students who saw the film but never read the book, so they’ve gone ahead and ordered themselves a copy - one ordered it in the English original, the other a Czech translation). And if Mr. King gets a cut of the film’s profits, well, then I say, “Party at Stephen King’s place this Halloween!!” LOL.

I honestly can’t say - I have no idea of their respective net worth. In any event, I’d say both of them are set………in the words of an H.P. Lovecraft character in one of his stories, “….wealthy beyond the necessity of pursuing a commercial life” (something Lovecraft never was - he died pretty much penniless).

I can’t help but reflect in a certain irony in that: Pennywise is certainly a Lovecraftian entity (an extradimenisonal being with its true form consisting of a shapeless mass of orange lights - the Deadlights) and of all the Lovecraftian critters running around out there in weird fiction, it is Pennywise that is the most famous…..probably more well-known that Cthulhu. Yet how many out there are aware of that? Not all that many, I’d speculate, unless they’ve read some of Lovecraft’s work.

Thanks to Mr. King, I started reading Lovecraft when I was around 14 or so (King mentioned him in “Danse Macabre”) and when “It” came out, I recognized Pennywise immediately as an homage to Lovecraft’s entities.

Greets and saluts from the resistance in the NYC metro area. Irma’s eyewall is now upon the Keys and it’s absolutely ferocious with high winds, storm surge, and yet there are some people who wouldn’t or couldn’t get out.

Some people can’t get out - they don’t have the means.
Some wouldn’t get out - they thought they could ride out this storm, despite the horrific imagery we’ve seen from elsewhere in the Caribbean where entire islands were left virtually uninhabitable and all vegetation stripped.

You have the daredevils. You have the people who had to care for others who couldn’t get out. You have people who couldn’t afford to get out.

All of them will find themselves in potentially life-threatening circumstances. People who evacuated from Miami to Tampa are finding themselves in the path. There were really no good options for Floridians with a storm this size - the entire state was going to get slammed - the only question who got the bullseye and for how long would those winds and surge last.

I’ve been thinking about this, and tweeted about this the other day - but Florida really needs to consider more shelter-in-place facilities. We can’t and shouldn’t expect millions of people to move out of a state that really has only 2-3 major N/S routes and a handful of E-W roads across the state. Each and all are easily overwhelmed with the numbers involved, and you’d likely cause more problems with an evacuation than otherwise.

Sheltering in place with storm shelters designed to protect against flood and wind may make more sense than telling people to get out of the way of the storm. The state has many shelters that are part of existing structures - schools and the like, but they can’t hold but more than a fraction of the population.

What doesn’t help is that the GOP has systematically and almost uniformly opposed dealing with climate change and rising sea levels. They actively fight to block mention of the sound science, and instead have decided that their priority is to push tax cuts over all else - tax cuts ahead of disaster relief. Tax cuts ahead of mitigating risks from rising sea levels. Tax cuts above caring for the general welfare.

Tax cuts are the be-all and end-all for the GOP. But these tax cuts aren’t just spread across all Americans. Only a very thin slice of people will benefit - millionaires like Trump. Everyone else gets the burdens, because as revenues plummet, the GOP will demand that costs be contained and cut safety net programs all while the rich get even richer.

And that’s the GOP that Trump leads (and yeah, I’ve been watching as WaPo, NYT, and AP all try to claim that Trump is something other than a GOPer - that’s empirically and objectively… what’s the word/term I’m looking for, oh yeah… fucking bullshit). Trump’s budget called for cuts to FEMA and USCG. The GOP budget calls for cuts to the NFIP. The GOP have pursued tax policies that would deliver massive tax cuts to the rich and burdens shifted to everyone else. Their Trumpcare/Ryancare plans all were truly tax cuts paid for with massive and deep cuts to Medicaid. Their tax plan is more of the same.

That’s a trend. A lot of popular authors do that. Well into death, too. Kyle Mills (an exceptional author in his own right) is writing Vince Flynn novels now. And the guy who’s writing the Bourne novels (mediocre at best) is keeping Ludlum “alive”. He killed Marie because he didn’t think he could make Bourne Bourne if she lived (much like the movies).

And I learned an important point about preparing for a disaster or responding to one: Protein is very important. One of the Red Cross guys said that early on, they had lots of generic snacks - breakfast stuff, granola bars, etc - but after a while, people need protein. What became valuable were the tuna snack packs. They started having to ration them because people were going through them so fast. The packs are also good because they didn’t need to be refrigerated or heated. So, if you feel the need to give something to a relief effort other than money, things with meat, that don’t have to be refrigerated, are very useful.

OK, just back from seeing a matinee of It.

Good film; I recommend it. Obviously some changes from the book, and a few character-arc changes as well, but overall, it works.

It’s going to be interesting to see what they do with It: Chapter 2. I wonder if they’ll try to cast Molly Ringwald as the adult Bev Marsh…..there’s a great little reference to her in this film.

I got so tired of store bought bread that I bought a Zojirushi breadmaking machine. Experimented with formulas until I perfected making dark pumpernickel rye with dill and caraway seeds. Put all the ingredients in the machine, poke a hole for the yeast, press the button and in 2 hours nice fragrant pumpernickel! slice the ends and have a salad with it. Dee-lish!

They weren’t scheduled to come by until next Sunday, but were able to re-schedule and come out a week early. Having that oak trimmed back makes me feel a lot better as we head into storm season.

It is the internet after all.

Worthy of discussion sometime-Not uncommon for police to go gun in hand pointed down depending on information at the time. So even if staged, that gun out thing really happens commonly. The rules about drawing it are nothing serious really. The trainers tell them that drawing it is “tactical / defensive, holstering is administrative”.

A good point you make. But I think in the video age some cops are caught out trying to be a bad ass and then realizing they are on camera. To me the cop looked a little sheepish which is a tough and subtle emotion for an actor in a ‘cheap’ video.

I saw a video a few weeks a go with a sovereign citizen type young lady going on and on about why she is right and the cop was wrong. The cop let her go on for longer than the video in question.

But she was white. So? It ended with the cop saying he was towing the car and she had to get out because they can’t tow the car with her in it. Don’t know what occurred after that.

I guess we will learn. But it is sad we even have to be going over whether this is real or not…going over all the debates every month over some police over reaction or outright killing. Fuck.

At the time, he described the bill as a repository of ideas for reforming space policy rather than as an active piece of legislation.”
….
“…In the bill, Bridenstine proposes that NASA amend its institutional objectives, which would include eliminating current objectives for the “expansion of human knowledge of the Earth and of phenomena in the atmosphere and space” and the conduct of studies on “the utilization of aeronautical and space activities for peaceful and scientific purposes.”

That’s a trend. A lot of popular authors do that. Well into death, too. Kyle Mills (an exceptional author in his own right) is writing Vince Flynn novels now. And the guy who’s writing the Bourne novels (mediocre at best) is keeping Ludlum “alive”. He killed Marie because he didn’t think he could make Bourne Bourne if she lived (much like the movies). I’m sure he would have made her a poor, gypsy girl (like the movies did, vs the PhD partner of Bourne in the books), if he could have.

Then there’s Robert K. Tannenbaum, whose first fiction books were ghostwritten and then, when his ghostwriter/cousin quit, his books went to shite.

Watching Cleveland sportsball…so a bit of politics comes out of it.

The Browns team along with Cleveland Police, Cleveland Fire and Military members all walked out of the tunnel arm and arm and stood arm and arm along the sidelines for the anthem.

There had been some heat in Cleveland because of Browns players taking knees during the anthem. Cleveland as you know has all kinds of issues with police and race, etc.

That is all.

That’s bullshit…if you used a Microsoft online account to sign into Windows 10 on that machine as the initial/main account on that computer, that computer is tied to your Microsoft account, so you can reset the existing install or even do a clean install of Win10 yourself for nothing (except for your time, but, even so, it doesn’t really take that long these days).

I’m curious if he knows what political parties are.

I’ll break it down for the little nimrod: The current system as Bros know it is not something set in stone by the deity of their choosing. It is a system that was instituted largely because of (wait for it) progress from the old days of party bosses just choosing the party candidate in a smokey backroom. And guess what, even that system has been expanded, reformed, and changed over the years.

The current DNC primary process, including the much reviled “superdelegates”? That came about due to three major back-to-back losses in the span a decade. Two of those losses (McGovern & Mondale) were Bernie-like candidates: Old white men who appealed to a very narrow demographic that was over-represented in the party primaries. Both lost in humiliating fashion and convinced the DNC that it needed a check on the system, a way to prevent another firebrand with limited appeal outside of the party ranks from playing the system to win the nomination.

Cue more damning examples. Our ‘higher than the Himalayas, deeper than the deepest ocean’ friendship with China has mandated that we remain completely silent on the treatment of the Uighur ethnic minority that occupies the vast Xinjiang region bordering Pakistan to the north — and, which, even more significantly, China seeks to transform by building CPEC. The Uighur are Muslim, but there isn’t a hue and cry at the manner in which the Chinese state has suppressed their basic freedoms, and is now steadily facilitating the influx of ethnic Han Chinese into Xinjiang to fundamentally transform the region’s social mores.
