...after more than seven inches of rain fell Saturday and Sunday in Louisville, Kentucky. The National Weather Service declared a flash flood emergency for Louisville early Sunday due to back-to-back thunderstorms that began Saturday.. First floor apartments were flooded and vehicles were swallowed by high waters after 5.91 inches fell in Louisville on Saturday alone, according to the Weather Channel. Flooding closed at least 45 roads. Authorities say more than 80 people were rescued or evacuated thanks to seven-inches of rainfall that fell in 36 hours. NBC's Kerry Sanders reports. "I was lying there sleeping, kids woke me up, looked out, I couldn't believe it," evacuee Vickie Dedrick told NBC affiliate WAVE in Louisville. "Just a little bit of water on the road, next thing you know it looks like a tidal wave come through; looks like all cars washed off," added evacuee Mark Elliott. No injuries were reported, but at least 45 roads were closed and many homes and cars were damaged, according to the Courier-Journal. According to the National Weather Service, a record 5.91 inches of rain fell on Saturday, breaking the day's old record of 3.07 inches of rain set on October 5, 1910, WAVE reported. The deluge also already breaks the local all-time record for rainfall the month of October: The previous record was 5.07 inches set in 2004. The National Weather Service reports Louisville residents will be able to breathe a sigh of relief with a mostly sunny......

The Station Agent

...The Station Agent: Isolation at a Glance The feeling of isolation is by far one of the worst feelings that one can experience. Isolation is the state where one separates themselves or is separated by people or groups. When in isolation it is very difficult for someone to come and comfort or break the barrier that has been built. The barrier is built in order to keep others away. It is the state of solitude. In the movie, The Station Agent, I believe the main theme was isolation. Isolation was a factor that played for all three main characters; Fin, who isolated himself from society because of his appearance, Joe, who isolated himself from friends because of his father’s business and Olivia, who isolated herself after the death of her son and the separation from her husband. The only way isolation can be prevented for these three characters is for them to feel a sense of belonging. Finbar McBride, also known as Fin is a little person. He does not like socializing with others, instead he much rather enjoys being left alone. In the beginning of the movie, I begin to think that maybe Fin loves trains so much because it’s a way for him to hide behind them. At work, in the train toy shop, he stands behind shelves and desks, making him barely noticeable and even outside near the train tracks, he tends to explore underneath the train. This focuses the movie on him being behind the bigger picture most of the time. Fin enjoys being left alone and isolated because it seems to be......

Gas Station another one. He wishes to build a gas station to service the down town traffic. I What is the standard Jim must show to get a variance to allow him to build the gas station? R- The business owners sought review of the decision following the decree that upheld a zoning variance that was granted to the gas station owner. The issue was ehether the trial court erred in upholding the granting of the variance to the gas station owner. The court found that the facts and findings did not jusify the trial court's conclusion. The court held that no hardship to the gas station owner was shown affecting his property and not affecting the zoning district in which it was located. The court found that the hardship caused by the taking of the former site was irrelevant. The court held that if there was occasion to change the uses permitted on the land, because of the general effect of the shift to business, such was for the town to consider by way of amendment. It ws concluded that the finding that relief could be afforded without substantal detriment to the pulic good and with out derogating from the purpose of by law did not support the variance. The court held that the board of appeals exceeded its authority. The court reversed the decree that granted a zoing variance to the gas station owner. Shacka v. Board of Appeals, 341 Mass. 593 (Mass. 1961) The proeprty and the locus were both on a 1-80 zone district which permitted gas stations and other commercial uses. A new zoning......

Extreme Weather

...Extreme Weather What is extreme weather? Extreme weather any type of extreme or severe weather. It is weather on a larger more serious and devastating scale. There are many different types of extreme weather like tornadoes, hurricanes floods, and many more. When there is an extreme weather phenomenon happens there is usually a high cost that comes with it not only economical but also personal. One type of extreme weather is hurricanes. Hurricanes are also known as typhoons and cyclones. It is a powerful rotating storm that involves thunder, lightning, and rain. Hurricanes are one of the most damaging and powerful forces there are among the other types of extreme weather. Hurricanes are a major hazard to buildings, people, and the environment. A hurricane has killed more people than any other storm there is. In order for a tropical storm to be classified as a hurricane its wind speed has to reach 74mph but usually reaches higher wind speed than that. Some examples of hurricanes over the last couple of years are hurricane Ivan and Katrina. Hurricane Ivan made its appearance on the gulf shores of Alabama. This hurricane started at 2:10am Thursday September 16 2004. Hurricanes Ivan’s strength was estimated to be around 130 mph which made it a category 3 hurricane. Ivan cost a lot of damages, it was estimated that there was around 123 fatalities and the cost damage it caused was estimated at $18 million making it the fifth costliest hurricane ever to strike the country.......

Tools for Managing Weather Risk

...Tools for managing weather risk Characterization Weather derivatives, unlike the financial and stock are used to hedge quantity rather than price risks. As commodity futures have underlying price of the commodity and weather derivatives are based on a measured weather index, depending on the specifics of the contract. For this purpose, relevant weather variables can be measured quantitatively. Most weather contracts – 69% Degree Days are based on indices which measure the deviation of the average daily temperature from a base temperature (mostly 65 ° F or 18 ° C). These indices occur within the energy industry and are designed to correlate well with the consumption of electricity for heating (Heating Degree Days, HDD) or cooling (Cooling Degree Days, CDD). The indices are calculated for each day of the contract and in effect a measure of how cold (HDD) or how warm (CDD) is one day. The index value for the contract period is the cumulative sum of the measured daily deviations from the benchmark. The same principles of aggregation of reported daily values ​​(deviation from a benchmark average and cumulative value) is applied to calculate indexes based on the amount of rain and snow, wind power, etc.. Specific type of indexes are indexes threshold ("event" or called "critical day" index), which report the number of cases (of days) during the contract, which occur in certain weather events, such as average daily temperature exceeds (or falls below) threshold. Types of......

Weather and Crime

...of a City and its Violent Crime Rate? Charles Baker III Professor Andrea Cantora CRJU 485 19 February 2015   Statement of Problem Violence is a part of human nature that is studied on many levels. In the United States, violent crime is the main cause of death of people ages 18 to 24 (Gamble & Hess, 2012). It appears that violent crime affects this country in every corner on the map. Research done by Gamble and Hess (2012) stated that in 2009, aggravated assaults made up around 61% of violent crime; robbery made up 31%; rape made up 6.7%, and murder made up 1.2%. But what causes this violence? According to Gamble and Hess (2012), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) created a list of factors that influence violent crime, and weather is one of them. This is quite interesting to look at to see if there is a relationship between average temperature and violent crime rate. Estimates of the extent of the problem Violent crime is sweeping the nation and is still causing problems for federal, state, city, and local police agencies. In 2013, an estimated 1,163,146 violent crimes took place across the nation (Federal Bureau of Investigation [FBI], 2014). The FBI’s Uniform Crime Report (UCR) compromises four offenses as violent crime; these include murder and nonnegligent manslaughter, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault (FBI, 2014). Per 100,000 people, there was an estimate of 367.9 violent crimes committed in 2013 (FBI, 2014). The FBI (2014) disclosed that......

British Weather

...Describe and explain the characteristics of the British climate (40) The purpose of this essay is to describe, with specific reference to highland and lowland regions, the British climate. also an explanation of how air masses, latitude, continentally, and ocean currents can interact to determine the British climate before reaching a conclusion as to the ultimate determining factor.  The climate or average weather conditions in Britain for a protracted period of time can be classified as ‘Temperature Maritime’. This is the climate typical of the west coasts at middle latitudes of most continents, and generally features warm summers and cool winters, with a relatively narrow annual temperature range. In 2014, the UK mean temperature for summer was 14.8°C and in the winter the mean temperature was 5.2°C. In the UK, the average rainfall in the lowlands is a lot lower than the average rainfall in the highlands. the overall total rainfall for 2014 was 1300mm, 113% of the 1981-2010 average.  Highland Britain, lies north of Tees-exe line, is usually colder, in both winter and summer than lowland Britain Manchester is located in highland Britain and is much colder than Brighton, which is located in lowland Britain. The mean maximum temperature in summer between 1981 and 2010 in the UK’s lowlands was 20°C, and the minimum mean temperature was 11°C. In the highlands however, the mean maximum temperature was 15°C and the mean minimum temperature was 8-9°C. in the summer, it was...

Weather Climate

...STRUCTURE OF THE ATMOSPHERE Troposphere | Closest to the earth and most weather happens here. Temperature drops as you go higher. Wind speeds increase. Most unstable layer. End of the sphere is marked by the tropoPAUSE- an isothermal layer where temp remains constant. | Stratosphere | Steady increase in temperature. Marked by the STRATOPAUSE. Atmosphere is thinner here. | Mesosphere | Temperature decreases to -90. No water vapour or dust to absorb radiation. Very strong winds at 3000 km/hr. MESOPAUSE | Thermosphere | Increase in temperature from the absorption of UV radiation | Greatest amount of energy coming into the atmosphere is from insolation (short wave solar radiation). The amount of this energy from the sun is determined by: *Solar constant- varies slightly & affects longer term climate rather than short term *Distance from the sun- Earth’s orbit around sun can cause variation in distant *Altitude of the sun in the sky- equator receives more energy as rays are head on. At 60 degrees N or S its at an angle so there’s twice the area to heat up & more atmosphere to pass through *Length of the day & night Some radiation is absorbed by ozone, water vapour, co2, ice particles, and dust reduce the amount reaching Earth. & clouds also reflect radiation back! ALBEDO is the ratio between the amount of incoming and reflected radiation. (Usually at 4%) Short wave radiation is converted to heat and heats the surface of earth, while longer...

Stations of the Cross

...Blind Stations of the Cross “like a lamb led to the slaughter or a sheep before the shearers” The Blind Stations of the Cross can be done with any size group, but it is best if the large group is broken up into smaller groups of 5 to 8. Each group should have one or two leaders who act as Roman Guards (Centurions). Each station should be at a different location at your church or school grounds, so that it is actually a physical walk to get from one station to another.   Station I – Last Supper -       All the youth will be seated facing the front of the room -       Centurions will choose their group, put blindfolds on them and then sit them close to each other on the ground or at tables -       Luke 22: 14-20 will be read -       Give the youth water and break bread and give each  a small piece of bread in one hand   Station II – The Garden -       lead youth outside into the garden (it is best at this point to have youth put one hand on the shoulder of the person in front of them so they can walk blindfolded) -       Luke 22:39-53 will be read -       The garden is misty (us spray bottles filled with water) -       You fall to your knees – (group to their knees) -       Blood starts to drip from your sweat glands (dab of water around the forehead) -       See Judas come before you…they arrest you (duct tape wrists sticky side up) -       They lead you away to be judged (weave a rope in between each youth  putting the rope in between the duck tapped......

Mood & Weather

...Weather and Mood Bad weather affects some people negatively. “The ancient Greeks linked the four seasons with each of the vital moods (black bile, yellow bile, blood, phlegm)” (Freeman & Stansfeld, 2008, p.266). The Impact of the Environment on Psychiatric Disorder, relating this to mood and temperament has been the question for many scientists and thinkers. Some people suffer from SAD, (Seasonal Affective Disorder), which manifests itself in many ways. Freeman @ Stansfeld (2008, p.271) states that SAD as “a condition whereby there is a pattern of depression occurring in winter, with the episode remitting in the following spring or summer” The Impact of the Environment on Psychiatric Disorder, and a tendency to have both increased appetite (hyperphagia) and increased sleep (hypersomnia), these people become sad and irritable. Others suffer physical pain such as headaches, arthritis and other symptoms, or they become inactive, despondent, and isolated. Both men and women are affected by gloomy weather; however, Dr. Peter C. Whybrow suggests that, “Women are four times more affected than men” (Whybrow, 1997, p.157) A Mood Apart. Depression happens particularly on grey days when the sun doesn’t shine and the atmospheric environment is dark and heavy. People’s spirits also mirror the dark and heavy weather around them as they internalize the environment. The effects of SAD are felt more by those people who live in the frigid zones of the world, such as Canada, Alaska,......
