Not important to anyone really. Hoping it’s a good race, though.

Posted in: Floods trap many in Florida as hurricane heads to South Carolina See in context

This is a refreshingly well-written paragraph.

Quote: “While scientists generally avoid blaming climate change for specific storms without detailed analysis, Ian’s watery destruction fits what scientists have predicted for a warmer world: stronger and wetter hurricanes, though not necessarily more of them.”

Less so the following one.

Posted in: Are you making fewer phone calls than you used to, preferring instead email, texting, FaceTime, Snapchat or other social media? See in context

A friend often calls me. He tells me he hates texting. I am the opposite. I have always avoided phone calls. Thus the above question does not seem to apply here.

Posted in: Witnesses: Myanmar air attack kills 13, including 7 children See in context

Not only do they kill children, but they lie publicly about what they have done. A deadly whirlpool.

Luckily some of the soldiers still have a conscience. Let us hope that human goodness somehow prevails.

She is free to speak, of course, but behind the scenes there will be urgent discussions among dark figures over how to discredit and punish her. Only a question of time….

Posted in: Energy crisis spurs nuclear comeback worldwide See in context

The article on the other hand totally avoids the danger of a war environment, dare-devil tit-for-tat games and nuclear blackmail.

Safe nuclear power generation assumes a friendly natural environment (plenty of cooling water in your rivers, etc.) and a world which has irrevocably evolved away from any possibility of medieval ideas of conflict.

Posted in: Coric upsets Tsitsipas to win Cincinnati Masters title See in context

Luckily the rain held off, but what an incredible match. It started off with Tsitsipas looking more and more likely to make a clean sweep. No brainer.

No one could have predicted how Coric (‘Chorich’) was going to get his a55 in gear and power back like that. A complete low-ranking outsider. Wow. One had to feel sorry to see the confidence draining from Tsitsipas’s face. Coric is on the map.

Very close match, with both players needing physio for their legs.

Rain is quite contradictory in the UK.

During long summer droughts like this people panic when it fails, seeing clearly what needs to be done, but as soon as it reverts to type they quickly lose focus and forget to give thanks.

Some rain fell today across the country, with more forecast over the next couple of days.

Will it really fall, or will the forecast evaporate again?

Posted in: Japan Weather Association creates new words to describe merciless summer heat See in context

As the article expresses, no mercy = merciless. Without mercy.

Take one step outside, and it’s “No thank you!”

They probably did not want to mention this topic before the Tokyo Olympics with Japan’s mild summer weather.

Posted in: Pedestrian attacked by sword-wielding man in Kanagawa See in context

Naturally we all imagine a long-bladed weapon here, but it is important to remember that until the length is verified it could even have been a Tanto short blade, not necessarily a ‘sword’.

They too are ‘Nihonto’, (traditional bladed weapons) (not fruit knives or kitchen knives), and popular with Y people.
