Warmer weather will persist into fall

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest All data suggests above normal temperatures will persist into autumn. However, it should be noted that the above normal temperatures will be driven more from the night time lows than daytime maximum temperatures. This means we do not expect many days above about 90 for the maximum temperatures. So that is some good news.There is also some more good news. There are rain chances in the next seven to 10 days across Ohio. However, confidence is low on the placement of rainfall. It appears the heaviest rain will be along and east of Interstate 71. Rainfall totals of one to three inches are possible east of I-71 the next two weeks. Normal rainfall is about 1.5 to two inches inches so above normal rainfall is expected there. West of I-71 it is more unclear on how much will fall. We do expect rainfall but the further northwest in the state of Ohio the less. Indiana will see even less rainfall. Rainfall totals northwest of I-71 will be more common less than 1 inch than more. Isolated places could get limited amounts.The outlook for the rest of August calls for temperatures 1 to 5 degrees F above normal and rainfall below normal northwest half and normal or slightly above southeast half.  The outlook for September calls for continued above normal temperatures and rainfall at or below normal.  Evapo-transpiration will also continue at or above normal into September.Looking further ahead, the main pattern change from warmer and drier to cooler and wetter may not come until November or December as a possible La Nina influence kicks in.last_img read more

Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott Says UCLA AD Dan Guerrero Voted Incorrectly On Satellite Camps

first_imgpac-12 logo.Update: I assumed that eight or nine Pac-12 schools were for satellite camps. As it turns out, it was 11, with the assumed dissident being UCLA, according to Stewart Mandel. You can’t make this up.Larry Scott confirmed that 11 of the 12 Pac-12 schools did not support a satellite camp ban. Would not say the 12th, but, now you can guess.— Stewart Mandel (@slmandel) April 20, 2016Earlier: Two weeks ago, Washington State head coach Mike Leach said that most Pac-12 programs are for satellite camps, and that he didn’t know why the conference voted against it. According to Fox Sports’ Stewart Mandel, Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott has an answer: UCLA athletic director Dan Guerrero voted the wrong way.New twist in satellite camp ban. Pac-12 commish Larry Scott says their rep, Dan Guerrero, “did not vote the way he was supposed to vote.”— Stewart Mandel (@slmandel) April 20, 2016It is unclear whether this was subterfuge by an athletic director whose school is in a talent rich city, or just a mistake, but it makes sense that most Pac-12 programs would want the chance to see players from other areas. While UCLA and USC have the advantage of being in Los Angeles, and Stanford has its own very unique recruiting ability, satellite camps make a ton of sense for pretty much every other program in the league.last_img read more

Stevie Nicks Rocks Elton Johns Enduring Vision Event

first_imgAs part of the evening’s program, EJAF Founder Sir Elton John and Chairman David Furnish presented Enduring Vision awards to three outstanding Foundation supporters. Robert Kraft has been a loyal and generous supporter of the Foundation for many years, both personally and through the Robert and Myra Kraft Family Foundation. As Chairman, CEO, and Founder of Neuro, and as a private philanthropist, Diana Jenkins has been a wonderful patron of EJAF’s work and events in the U.S. and in the U.K. Likewise, Joseph Blount has also been an ardent benefactor to the Foundation since its inception.CNN journalist and New York Times best-selling author Anderson Cooper hosted the gala dinner for a sixth consecutive year, and legendary singer Stevie Nicks performed. Also, Jamie Niven of Sotheby’s conducted a live auction featuring such one-of-a-kind items as a Jean-Philippe Delhomme portrait; “Big Bear,” the largest canvas from Matthew Brandt’s Lakes and Reservoirs series; two Andy Warhol Cow screenprints; lunch for two with Anderson Cooper; two best-in-house seats and backstage passes to Alec Baldwin’s Broadway performance of Lyle Kessler’s Orphans; and a week-long stay for up to 16 people at the Castello di Santa Eurasia in Italy. 

“The AIDS disease is caused by a virus, but the AIDS epidemic is not. The AIDS epidemic is fueled by stigma, by hate, by misinformation, by ignorance, by indifference. Science has accomplished miracles over the past 20 years, and science can now end this disease – but it cannot end the epidemic. We need more than medicine,” stated Sir Elton John in his keynote speech. “We can do something about these things. We need to speak out about the changes we need to make in our society. We have spoken out. And we will continue to speak out.”

Through the impeccable credibility and reputation attained based on 20 years of extensive work, EJAF has emerged as a significant leader in the field of AIDS. The Foundation advances public dialogue on critical and controversial issues related to the epidemic and challenges misguided policies and attitudes that block progress in HIV prevention. Proceeds from An Enduring Vision will help support these efforts, as well as EJAF’s grant-making initiatives across the U.S., the Caribbean, and the Americas.Photos from the event can be found here.Source:PR Newswire On Monday, October 15, Sir Elton John continued his humanitarian efforts to raise money for HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment, and awareness programs across the United States, the Americas, and the Caribbean at the Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF)’s 11th annual benefit An Enduring Vision held at Cipriani Wall Street (55 Wall Street).American Airlines, The Kraft Group, and Wells Fargo served as the Presenting Sponsors of the benefit, and the star-studded evening raised $2 million for the Foundation.last_img read more

Rafael Benitez refuses to rule out Newcastle exit

first_imgNewcastle United manager Rafael Benitez refused to give any guarantees that he will remain in charge until the end of the season.The Magpies have endured a difficult second campaign back in the Premier League following a lack of new signings over the summer transfer window.Currently, Newcastle find themselves just two points above the relegation zone and suffered early exits in both the Carabao Cup and FA Cup.Adding to their woes is the failed attempts to recruit new talent in this month’s transfer window after loan deals for Atletico Madrid’s Gelson Martins and Lazio’s Jordan Lukaku fell through.This has left many wondering what will come of Benitez’s own future at St James’ Park with the Spaniard out of contract at the end of the season and having previously expressed his frustrations over the club’s transfer policy.Speaking ahead to tonight’s home game against Premier League champions Manchester City, Benitez admitted he isn’t sure there will any new signings arriving before Thursday’s deadline.“I am not in charge of the deals,” said Benitez, according to Daily Mirror.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.The former Liverpool boss could leave Newcastle without having to pay any compensation and hinted last week that this month’s transfer activity could have a key impact on whether or not to sign a renewal.“No, I cannot guarantee anything,” replied Benitez, when asked if he could leave before the end of the season.“I guarantee I will be focussed and try to do my best every minute.”As for leaving on Thursday, he added: “We will wait until Thursday and see what happens.“Hopefully we can get three points against Manchester City and then everybody will be happy.”Newcastle ended a five-match winless run in the Premier League last time out by grabbing a crucial 3-0 win over relegation rivals Cardiff City.Benitez will be hoping that his side can take some badly needed momentum from that victory ahead of tonight’s encounter with City that will begin at 21:00 (CET).last_img read more

Statewide Smokefree Workplace Bill Signed Into Law

first_imgGovernor Bill Walker signed the statewide smoke-free workplace bill into law today at the Lucky Wishbone, reportedly the first restaurant in Alaska to go completely smoke-free. Businesses affected by the ban are required to put up signs that reads “Smoking Prohibited by Law–Fine $50.” Businesses that fail to post these signs will be liable for a fine between $50 and $300. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Starting on October 1, a new law goes into effect in the State of Alaska, the smoke-free workplace bill was signed into law today. If a community decides it wants to allow smoking in those environments, they can choose to “opt out” by putting the question on the ballot for the residents of the area to vote on. Smoking in pretty much any workplace whether it’s a public-facing business like restaurants, bars and music venues or more closed to the public like an office or hotel room is also banned. Senate Bill 63, commonly called the “Take it Outside Act,” was sponsored by Senator Peter Micciche (R-K-Pen), to protect Alaskans working indoors from secondhand smoke. The law includes marijuana and electronic cigarettes. The new law will also ban smoking outdoors at open-air venues like the seating area of outdoor concerts and sporting events, as well as near entrances to buildings affected by the ban and near playgrounds when children are present. Smoking on public transportation or in shared work vehicles would also be banned.last_img read more

Pebble Critics Say 90 Day Public Comment Period Is Not Enough

first_imgThe Corps of Engineers began a 90-day public comment period March 1 for the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (Draft EIS) for the project, which according to some is not a sufficient amount of time. The corps has received a number of requests to extend the 90-day period and is considering those, but so far it has not received a strong reason for an extension. On the other hand, critics of the project have criticized the substance of the review and say the process has been rushed. When the draft review was released last month, Pebble partnership CEO Tom Collier said the partnership saw “no significant environmental challenges that would preclude the project from getting a permit.” Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Proponents of the proposed copper mine near Bristol Bay testified on Monday during a House Resources Committee meeting. Biologist Daniel Schindler: “In a nutshell Alaskans should be dismayed; Alaska’s leaders should be outraged. The Army Corps of Engineers should be ashamed of themselves and embarrassed if they are going to put this environmental impact statement forward as a piece of credible science, it is not.”center_img In December 2017, the Pebble Limited Partnership submitted its application with the corps to initiate permitting for a 20-year mine development plan for the Pebble Deposit. The project has a smaller footprint, has no major mine facilities in the Upper Talarik drainage, and will not use cyanide for secondary gold recovery, as originally planned. Mike Heatwole, VP Public Affairs, Pebble Partnership: “One of the big issues we’ve heard over the years was the issue of size, and could we do something that was smaller. That’s what we’ve brought forward.”  The next phase is public review and comment period in order to inform and guide the development of the final EIS and record of decision for the project.last_img read more
