first_imgSo goodbye to bitter cold temperatures and snow..for now. Above normal temperatures have resumed and will be with us just about for the rest of the month. Temperatures will not reach the freezing mark until at least January 26th. The reason for the change, the Jetstream will remain to our north which will keep the Arctic Air from spilling into our region. Meanwhile, a ridge of high pressure will set up along the East Coast allowing a South-Southwest flow to push daytime highs mainly in the 50s through the period.While the pattern maybe mild, it will be unsettled as well. A couple storm systems will give us the threat of rain as well. The first low pressure on Friday will give us a period of rain.1st low pressure system brings some rain to our area on Friday. (Courtesy: much stronger storm will arrive on Monday giving us the threat of significant rain. Rain could continue on Tuesday as a secondary low pressure system develops along the coast.2nd much stronger storm to arrive Monday & possibly Tuesday with rain which could be heavy at times. (Courtesy: flow will allow ample moisture to soak the region. Along with the potential of heavy rain, some tidal flooding is possible. Fortunately, new moon phase will not arrive until later in the week.NOAA: Precipitation forecast for the next 7 days shows significant rain totals over our area (2″-3″)COLD RETURNS AT THE END OF THE MONTHUnfortunately, the mild temperatures wont last. Long range computer models indicate arctic air will return at the end of the month and continue into the beginning of February.Temperature anomaly for the end of the month shows colder air returning across most of the U.S. (Courtesy: cold air in place, we will watch to see if the pattern will become active during the period. So far this winter, any blasts of cold air only hangs around for a few days which makes any snowstorm threat difficult.NOAA: Below normal temperatures expected between Jan. 28th-Feb. 10thMonthly temperature anomalies show below normal temperatures forecast for February. (Courtesy:, long range forecasts indicate the pattern could support more chances for arctic air through the month which could keep us in the freeze longer. But that does not necessarily translate to a snowy outlook. We shall see as we get closer.last_img read more

first_imgThank you very much indeed Mr President. I would like to join other colleagues in thanking the Under-Secretary-General for his briefing and I’d like to join other colleagues in making clear that the United Kingdom also condemns Hizballah’s building of tunnels leading into Israel. As others have noted Mr President, it is a clear violation by Hizballah of Security Council resolution 1701. It threatens Israel’s security, it threatens Lebanon’s security and it threatens regional stability. We are clear that Israel has the right to defend itself against Hizballah and all other armed militia groups which put the security of Israel at risk. All Israelis, all Lebanese, have the right to live in peace without fear for their security.For too long Mr President, as other speakers have noted, we have witnessed Hizballah blatantly disregard UN resolutions. Their continued possession of weapons outside of Lebanese state control; their reported attempts to acquire dangerous new missile capabilities; as well as their statements threatening Israel, remain deeply alarming. Without an end to Hizballah’s illegal activities in Lebanon, and the region, we will continue to see regional stability threatened.The United Kingdom recognises the important work carried out by UNIFIL in maintaining calm and stability along the Blue Line over the last 12 years and we pay tribute to those nations who have provided commanders and troops for UNIFIL throughout that time. But the existence of the tunnels reinforces the importance of ensuring UNIFIL’s mandate is effective and strong, and that it has full access to all areas within its operation. We condemn any attempts at restricting UNIFIL’s freedom of movement. We recognise that there is a question of access to private property in the context of investigating where the tunnels are and we recognise this can be difficult. But it is not impossible to resolve this issue and we look forward to a workable solution being found.We welcome UNIFIL’s response and its actions to monitor the situation in addition, and maintain calm, including by deploying additional troops and liaison teams to sensitive locations along the Blue Line. It is vitally important that UNIFIL continues to liaise closely with the Lebanese and Israeli authorities. We call on the Lebanese state, and in particular the Lebanese Armed Forces, as the sole and legitimate defenders of Lebanon, to take appropriate action to neutralise the tunnels as a matter of urgency, working closely with UNIFIL. And we encourage Israel to continue sharing with UNIFIL, to the fullest extent possible, any information that would assist UNIFIL and the LAF in taking action. Where there are difficulties we urge all parties to work together constructively to overcome these. It is in neither side’s interest for the situation to escalate.Mr President, the United Kingdom has been clear in this Council on many occasions that we condemn Israeli violations of Lebanese sovereignty, whether by land, sea or air. Such actions undermine confidence and stability and we call for all relevant Security Council resolutions, in particular 1559 and 1701, to be respected in full. In this regard, the UK welcomes the commitments by both Israel and Lebanon including the recent statement from the Lebanese Foreign Ministry on the full implementation of 1701, refusal to accept any violations and respect of the Blue Line.Mr President, finally the UK calls on all sides to continue to abide by their commitments and to avoid actions and rhetoric that could destabilise the situation and region.Thank you Mr President.last_img read more

first_img When Mackintosh announced that Jonathan Pryce, the British Caucasian actor who had originated the role of the Engineer in London, would play the part in New York, Hwang wrote a letter objecting to the casting, since the Engineer is Eurasian. The playwright subsequently leaked the missive to the press, in the process becoming the public face of the many protestors. Hwang now admits: “Frightened and overwhelmed, I denied having done so.” He now wants to “apologize to Cameron Mackintosh for my deception.” David Henry Hwang has come clean over the “Yellow Face” controversy surrounding the 1991 Broadway transfer of West End hit Miss Saigon. “I lied to Cameron Mackintosh,” revealed the American playwright in The Guardian about his dealings with the mega-producer at the time. Pryce kept the role, winning a Tony for his performance, although subsequent Engineers have been played by actors of Asian descent. Meanwhile Hwang, with his plays Face Value and Yellow Face, explored racial identity. A new production of Miss Saigon will open in London this month; Jon Jon Briones, who was born in the Philippines, is playing the part of the Engineer.center_img View Commentslast_img read more

first_imgFor me, breaking down Halloween always comes back to the phases of childhood. Early on, you are all about the candy; maximize speed and efficiency to stockpile as much sugar as possible before mom comes to pick you up, traveling to the posh neighborhoods if necessary. Then, during the tween years, candy takes a back seat to, shall we say, more devious endeavors, whether they be of the TP and egg variety, or of the “take advantage of being alone in the dark on a school night awkward make out” variety. This is when trick or treating becomes less cool, but you still want free candy so you do it anyway. Then comes the lean years when you are too old to trick or treat, but still too young to go full rager without the risk of being grounded for the year. But it finally pays off when you get to the slutty, blowout, scare fest, extravaganza Halloween party phase. This one lasts a while, and it is good. The final phase is the bored parent phase, and it is also good, but for different reasons. This is the phase most of the people in the above video are in, and to which I am currently creeping toward.One of my favorite parts of getting scare pranks on video is that sometimes the person doing the scaring comes out the worse for wear, either by getting punched in the face or…well, usually getting punched in the face. What does this have to do with the outdoors? You have to be outside to get the candy, right? Or at least be outside long enough to half-french your girlfriend in the bushes.For a more traditional take on Trauma Tuesday, check out this compilation of urban rail riding bails from We Are 2012’s new movie “Capitals.”★CAPITALS / BAILS from WEARE2012 on Vimeo.last_img read more

first_imgLast week’s historic House vote to advance the Secure and Fair Enforcement (SAFE) Banking Act was an example of what can happen when the financial services sector works together, CUNA Chief Advocacy Officer Ryan Donovan wrote in The Hill Tuesday.Donovan says the story of how the bill advanced represents some of the best practices in financial services lawmaking, starting with the tenacity of the bill’s sponsors, Reps. Ed Perlmutter (D-Colo.), Denny Heck (D-Wash.), Steve Stivers (R-Ohio) and Warren Davidson (R-Ohio).“Their efforts were supported by a unified financial services sectors led by credit unions, banks and their associations working together to help Congress and their industries understand that the cannabis banking legislation wasn’t about making cannabis legal, but rather about making sure that legal cannabis business can bank safely,” Donovan writes. “Credit unions and banks working together on Capitol Hill might sound novel, and it certainly makes lawmakers take notice, but it’s not new. We’ve worked together to enact regulatory relief legislation; we stood side by side at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau; we’ve even been on the same side of data breach litigation. 1SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading »last_img read more
