Just say it
In 1981, Steve Schneider, then a senior scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colo., was faced with what he refers to as a job crisis. He was offered a job as weekend meteorologist at a station in New York City, a position that would have brought him the kind of fame and fortune that can otherwise elude the hardworking American scientist.
Schneider, who is now a Stanford professor in interdisciplinary environmental studies and biological sciences, and a 1992 MacArthur Foundation fellow, says he made a couple of requests during his station interview. Instead of describing the weather to viewers sun breaks he wanted to deliver forecasts, which reflect the uncertainty inherent in any forecast and the odds that any given event will occur. Schneider also wanted to discuss the daily weather in the context of global climate, as well as human activity, such as pollution.
Station managers weren impressed. were interested in the idea of probabilistic forecasts, but the news consultants hadn told them that how to make money, Schneider says. As for including climate change and human influences on weather, Schneider was told: chief meteorologist doesn believe in that. I said, doesn know what he talking about. That was the end of the interview.
Twenty five years later, the debate over global warming is over. as Schneider puts it, cooperating with theory. Now that the data are falling into place, and scientists have affirmed humans impact on climate, is the weather report poised for a 21st century makeover? Most Americans get their information about the weather and climate from TV meteorologists, who in turn provide forecasts to local newspapers. So the weather report would be a fitting, if not exclusive, place to inform the global warming discussion. The long term implications are also intriguing. Historically, weather forecasters have been segregated from issues of policy and human behavior, which are considered the rightful province of the news reporting staff. Global warming, however, may be the trigger that finally brings the weatherman in from the cold.
newscast has a built in section devoted to weather, says Robert Thompson, director of the Center for the Study of Popular Television at Syracuse University. is ripe for discussion of bigger issues.
Interviews with broadcast meteorologists from around the country suggest that climate change is a hot topic in the newsroom. Weather reporters have come a long way from the 1970s, when they were hired for their looks and handed jokey scripts (David Letterman was a weatherman). Today, most forecasters have degrees in meteorology or a related science. In fact, because weather forecasters are often the only reporters in the newsroom with science backgrounds, they are well positioned to report on global warming, if not explain all the complexities of climate science. not like there a Grand Canyon separating meteorologists and climatologists, says Anthony Socci, a senior policy fellow at the American Meteorological Society in Boston. share the same skill set.
But rescripting the classic weather forecast is no easy task. As media critic Neil Postman has pointed out, the happy go lucky weather report has always contained the seeds of a conservative agenda. Consider air quality alerts, which show up in the weather (not news) report as natural adjuncts to rain or shine, purely meteorological events devoid of social consequence or responsibility. Driven by ratings, station heads are reluctant to deviate from the standard three minute forecast, much less air content that might alienate the broadest possible audience, and cause them to change the channel.
last thing any station wants is an activist weatherman, says Matthew Felling, media director for the Center for Media and Public Affairs, a Washington research group. Would CNN interview health correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta, to talk only about heart disease? Felling asks. he talks about the possible causes, the links, he says. since Sept. 11, we been inundated with the importance of connecting the dots. But weathermen are asked to live in a vacuum.
Meteorologists, of course, are a heterogeneous crew, with diverse talents, career goals and political inclinations. But in a country where climate change is considered the province of politicians and talking heads not scientists all forecasters,
replica ray bans regardless of interest, are inevitably the last people on the set consulted on global warming coverage.
is very difficult for us to report on climate change issues, says John Toohey Morales, chief meteorologist at WSCV, an NBC Telemundo station in Miami. ask, but the news directors are not inclined to do it, or they put it in on a weekend news report with the lowest ratings. Political reporters present global warming as a debatable issue, says Toohey Morales, who is also American Meteorological Society commissioner for professional affairs. tough for meteorologists to compete against the misinformation campaign.
Last year, MJ McDermott, chief meteorologist for KCPQ 13, a Fox affiliate in Seattle, pitched her news director a story about global warming in the Northwest, an idea triggered by a class she had taken at the University of Washington Climate Impacts Group, a program that helps translate local climate information for the public. pitched it a couple of times, and the director said, yeah, and it never happened, says McDermott. It wasn until the Seattle Times published a report on the subject months later that the station decided to have a news reporter cover the issue.
could have been ahead of everybody, says McDermott, who once, on air, held up an article about global warming, only to receive angry e mails in response. it not news until it news until some report comes out, or until the White House is looking into it. And that hasn happened since Clinton.
Responding to concerns about media coverage of science, the American Meteorological Society has launched an initiative aimed at promoting TV weather forecasters to the position of scientist, and equipping them to cover a broad range of science topics in addition to tomorrow weather. Experts emphasize there is no way to connect a specific local weather event to global warming. But there are plenty of opportunities for broadcast meteorologists to raise public awareness, they say.
how I would use that pulpit, says Schneider, citing as an example the record drought in Phoenix, which ended March 11 after 143 days. would say: of drought and flood are the kind of events we are expected to have because of climate change, but we just don know in any single case. Humans don make the weather, but we are changing the forces that contribute to the weather.
Philip Mote, director of the Climate Impacts Group, says one of the biggest factors in a seasonal forecast is El Ni a large scale weather pattern that results from warming ocean temperatures in the equatorial Pacific Ocean area. In the Northwest, El Ni events generally lead to warmer and drier winter weather. Over the past several years, there hasn been much El Ni activity, Mote said, and yet seven out of the past 10 winters in the Northwest have been substantially warmer than usual.
the main skill for a forecaster is to say, it getting warmer, Mote says. station has the option of ignoring the question of global warming or dealing with a scientifically sound answer.
fake ray bans television meteorologists say they are interested in playing a more active reporting role on climate change issues. But in a newsroom dominated by ratings and tightly scripted formats, breaking the mold can be an overwhelming challenge.
have a burden to educate the public about climate change, says Phil Ferro, chief meteorologist for WSVN, a Fox affiliate in Miami. the TV industry is so competitive, he says. constraints keep me from discussing it, even here in Miami, where folks are seeing the effects of global warming with the hurricanes. Television consultants preach a news mantra, Ferro adds. local news stations sound alike and look alike. If you don focus on your backyard, people tune in somewhere else.
Other forecasters say climate change is simply too complicated and too controversial to discuss in the context of a local forecast. stay away from global warming; I won touch it, says Bill Bellis, chief meteorologist at KNXV, an ABC affiliate in Phoenix.
say the world is going to get one degree warmer; what the hell is that going to do? asks Bellis, who had to postpone his original interview with Salon when drought breaking rains continued to fall. can link the drought to global warming because then people say, what about last year, we had record rainfall? Global temperatures are rising, but it not affecting the local aspect, and people get really touchy if you bring it up. Wait until we break 120 degrees consistently, then I say my god on TV.
Viewer feedback runs against global warming coverage, says Shannon Richards, KNXV weather producer. did a story on Mount Kilimanjaro, and people wrote in saying we not covering the fact that the ice melting will help some creatures or vegetation, she says. of the negative e mail, we hesitant to do more on the air. We hate to run things that turn off viewers.
Then there are the contrarian meteorologists a minority, but not an uncommon breed in the newsroom. science is not definitive to make the connection between observed weather and human activity, says Gene Norman, chief meteorologist for WGCL TV, a CBS affiliate in Atlanta. earth is three quarters water and one quarter land. It hard for me to believe humans are making that much of a difference in global climate change. Should forecasters help educate the public about global warming? a tricky question; it speaks to advocating a certain public policy, Norman says. January 2006 was warm, he says. But February was cooler than usual. heating bills went up, he says. think all of us in meteorology have to educate ourselves on what is fact and what is fiction.
As local and network news stations grapple with their approach to global warming coverage, selected media outlets are moving forward. Chad Myers, CNN weather anchor, said he had nothing to contribute about climate change, and declined to be interviewed. But the Weather Channel, the enormously popular 24 hour cable channel, is aggressively pursuing climate reporting as a niche market. Until a few years ago, Heidi Cullen was a research scientist at Boulder National Center for Atmospheric Research awesome gig, with steady funding, she says. Then the Weather Channel called with an offer Cullen couldn refuse: a newly created position as in house climate expert. was a fluke, she laughs. of my friends don have a TV and I never even watched the Weather Channel. But the former engineer was intrigued. felt the need to be practical, to communicate to a broader audience, she says.
Through the Weather Channel Earth series, Cullen has reported
cheap ray bans on climate change and the Inuit Eskimos in Alaska, melting glaciers in Greenland and the drought in Arizona. consider it my job to link weather and climate, she says. more long term we can link the two, the better off we will be.
goal is to be the go to source for factual, scientific information on the topic of climate change, says Ray Ban, the Weather Channel executive vice president. we do our job, more attention will be drawn to the topic. It the best way to educate the American people. Last December, the Weather Channel issued a position statement on global warming, affirming the scientific consensus that human activity affects the climate. This fall, the network will launch a new weekly program dedicated solely to climate issues.
Even at the networks, there are signs of institutional change. Echoing the accounts of other meteorologists, Pete Bouchard at WHDH TV, an NBC affiliate in Boston, says he pitched several stories on climate change, only to be shot down by news directors. it doesn bleed, it doesn lead, he says. Recently promoted to the position of chief meteorologist, Bouchard is now advocating for a weekly segment on technology and science, a show that would cover everything from global warming to solar technologies. The program supports the AMS station scientist concept, he says.
like to be the clearinghouse for information on climate change and other issues, Bouchard says. warming is the biggest single challenge for our children generation, and it is the role of the meteorologist to guide the public through it. The challenge, he points out, will be taking the reins from news reporters, who currently lay claim to anything not covered by a standard weather forecast. about branding, he says. it will have to be something like Weekly Science and Tech Exclusive.
Rain today, sun breaks tomorrow for most people, the weather is still something that comes
discount ray bans before or after the sports. Still, programs such as Bouchard may usher in a new era of weather reporting as the nexus where nature and humankind meet. After all, there no turning back. isn certain we are going to have serious global warming, Schneider says. we have started to load the climate dice.Articles Connexes：

New data from Virginia Tech Transportation Institute provides insight into cell phone use and driving distraction
BLACKSBURG, Va., July 29, 2009 Several large scale, naturalistic driving studies using sophisticated cameras and instrumentation in participants personal vehicles conducted by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute, provide a clear picture of driver distraction and cell phone use under real world driving conditions, according to the institute.
Combined, these studies continuously observed drivers for more than 6 million miles of driving.
recent catastrophic crash events
fake ray bans and disturbing trends, there is an alarming amount of misinformation and confusion regarding cell phone and texting use while behind the wheel of a vehicle. Our research findings can help begin to clear up these misconceptions as it is based on real world driving data. We conduct transportation safety research in an effort to equip the public with information that can save lives, says Tom Dingus, director of the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute.
In the institute studies that included light vehicle drivers and truck drivers, manual manipulation of phones such as dialing and texting of the cell phone lead to a substantial increase in the risk of being involved in a safety critical event such as a crash or near crash. However, talking or listening increased risk much less for light vehicles and not at all for trucks. Text messaging on a cell phone was associated with the highest risk of all cell phone related tasks. The tasks that draw the driver eyes away from the forward roadway were those with the highest risk.
Several recent high visibility trucking and transit crashes have been directly linked to texting from a cell phone. VTTI research showed that text messaging, which had the highest risk of over 20 times worse than driving while not using a phone, also had the longest duration of eyes off road time (4.6 second over a six second interval). This equates to a driver traveling the length of a football field at 55 miles per hour without looking at the roadway. Talking/listening to a cell phone allowed drivers to maintain eyes on the road and were not associated with an increased safety risk to nearly the same degree.
Recent results from other researchers using driving simulators suggest that talking and listening is as dangerous as visually distracting cell phone tasks. The results from VTTI naturalistic driving studies clearly indicate that this is not the case. For example, talking and listening to a cell phone is not nearly as risky as driving while drunk at the legal limit of alcohol. Recent comparisons made in the literature greatly exaggerate the cell phone risk relative to the very serious effects of alcohol use, which increases the risk of a fatal crash approximately seven times that of sober driving. Using simple fatal crash and phone use statistics, if talking on cell phones was as risky as driving while drunk, the number of fatal crashes would have increased roughly 50 percent in the last decade instead of remaining largely unchanged.
These results show conclusively that a real key to significantly improving safety is keeping your eyes on the road. In contrast, intense tasks such as emotional conversations, or listening to books on tape, can have a measurable effect in the laboratory, but the actual driving risks are much lower in comparison.
Recommendations based on findings from research studiesDriving is a visual task and non driving activities that draw
discount ray bans the driver eyes away from the roadway, such as texting and dialing, should always be avoided.
Texting should be banned in moving vehicles for all drivers. As shown in findings overview, this cell phone task has the potential to create a true crash epidemic if texting type tasks continue to grow in popularity and as the generation of frequent text message senders reach driving age in large numbers.
Headset cell phone use is not substantially safer than hand held use because the primary risk is associated with both tasks is answering, dialing, and other tasks that require your eyes to be off the road. In contrast, true hands free phone use, such as voice activated systems, are less risky if they are designed well enough so the driver does not have to take their eyes off the road often or for long periods.
All cell phone use should be banned for newly licensed teen drivers. Our research has shown that teens tend to engage in cell phone tasks much more frequently and in much more risky situations than adults. Thus, our studies indicate that teens are four times more likely to get into a related crash or near crash event than their adult counterparts.
The disconnect between naturalistic and simulator researchThe institute says it is important to keep in mind that a driving simulator is not actual driving. Driving simulators engage participants in tracking tasks in a laboratory. As such, researchers that conduct simulator studies must be cautious when suggesting that conclusions based on simulator studies are applicable to actual driving.
With the introduction of naturalistic driving studies that record drivers (through continuous video and kinematic sensors) in actual driving situations, there is now a scientific method to study driver behavior in real world driving conditions in the presence of real world daily
discount ray bans pressures.
So, if the point of transportation safety research is to understand driver behavior in the real world and conflicting findings occur between naturalistic studies and simulator studies, then findings from the real world scenarios (and not the simulator world) must be considered the gold standard, according to the institute.
They go on to indicate it is also critical to note that some results of recent naturalistic driving studies, including those highlighted here as well as others are at odds with results obtained from simulator studies. Future research is necessary, says researchers, to explore the reasons why simulator studies sometimes do not reflect studies conducted in actual driving.

cheap ray bans Serve), Virginia Tech takes a hands on, engaging approach to education, preparing scholars to be leaders in their fields and communities.

Pryor Says Obama Should Do More To Address Ebola
Sen. from three Ebola plagued West African countries and outlined other steps he said are needed to protect Americans from the deadly virus. Sen. John Boozman, R Ark., also called for a travel ban in a statement Friday. House delegation including Pryor’s re election opponent, Rep. Tom Cotton, R Dardanelle sent
discount ray bans a letter to the president asking for a similar ban.
Obama has said he opposes a travel ban because it could lead to travelers seeking to avoid screenings and thereby increase the risk of spreading the virus.
Talking to reporters in his Senate office in Little Rock, Pryor said, "I don’t think that President Obama has done enough. I think his piecemeal approach has not been helpful in some ways. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s quarantine procedures; improved sharing of information between the CDC and states; and a cabinet member designated to deal with Ebola. response to the Ebola virus.
"He doesn’t need to be in briefings and then say, ‘Well, let me go check with the White House about this,’" he said.
Dr. Nate Smith, director of the state Department of Health, and Dr. Dirk Haselow, state epidemiologist, joined Pryor for the news conference.
"We do not have any Ebola cases in the state at this time, and we don’t have anyone under investigation for Ebola," Smith said. "But since early August, we’ve been working very closely with our health care facilities, our health care providers, our emergency medical services to help prepare for the possibility."
Boozman said in a statement Friday, "We need to be proactive and establish temporary travel restrictions for people entering the United
replica ray bans States who have been to West African countries experiencing Ebola outbreaks. While the president has been resistant to this idea, the fact remains that more needs to be done to ensure public safety, and travel restrictions would be a common sense place to start."
Boozman also said he was pleased that Obama recognized the need to appoint an
cheap ray bans Ebola czar but said he was concerned that Klain has "neither a logistics background nor an understanding of infectious diseases."
Fred Brown, spokesman for the Republican
fake ray bans National Committee, said in a statement Friday that Pryor has "no credibility" on Ebola.Articles Connexes：

World’s 10 greatest investors
Buffett made an enormous fortune from astute investments, particularly through his company Berkshire Hathaway, of which he is the largest shareholder and CEO.
Berkshire Hathaway has about $2 billion in holdings.
With an estimated net worth of about $46 billion, the 79 year old Buffett, is often called the ‘Sage of Omaha’.
As a child, Buffett was a paper boy for the Washington Post and attempted to cover more than one route at the same time. Showing a spontaneous talent for making money, Buffett also started earning that early by collecting and selling lost golf balls.
He even started playing the stock market with one of his sisters at 11. At 12, he was betting on horses and by high school he started a business (pinball machines) with a friend, which earned him $50 a week.
Not only did he own a business by the time he graduated, he also had bought himself 40 acres of farmland in Nebraska.
Buffett was strongly influenced by economist Benjamin Graham’s theory that it is wise to look for stocks of companies which are undervalued as they will probably prosper with a little time.
Buffett started his investment company, the Buffett Partnership, at 25, using $5,000 of his own funds and collecting $100,000 from friends and family. One of the smartest moves made by Buffett’s company at that time was to invest in American Express.
In June 2006, Buffett made a commitment to give away his fortune to charity, with 85 per cent of it ($30 billion) going to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Buffett’s donation was the largest act of charitable giving in the world’s history.

fake Michael kors handbags outlet when all of his young players come of age, is whether he can afford to keep them all. Beginning this summer, Winnipeg Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff will be entering this territory.
Michael Frolik, Andrew Ladd and Dustin Byfuglien are all headed towards unrestricted free agent status and will all be in position to sign extensions this summer. In Frolik case, that window is already open and he is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent next July 1. Ladd and Byfuglien will potentially be UFAs at the end of the 2015 16 season.
Mark Scheifele, Jacob Trouba, Adam Lowry and Michael Hutchinson all have contracts expiring at the end of the 2015 16 season and they will also be eligible for extensions this summer.
This group of players will be restricted free agents at the end of their current deals and as such have less leverage.
Trouba, however, could be a target for an offer sheet from an opposing franchise.
So, Cheveldayoff will want to be prudent but also protective in his strategy for this group. Vultures will be watching to see how Winnipeg flexes its financial muscles.
Michael Kors handbags outlet wants to have all of these players in his lineup when the 2017 18 season begins, he to have to drive smart bargains. Or determine he can afford all of these better players and shed cap much like the Chicago Blackhawks did when they said goodbye to Byfuglien, Ladd and Frolik in their own version of cap crunch.
The Jets already have $38 million on the cap split over nine contracts for the 2016 17 season. Winnipeg has 23 players totalling $64 million in cap space signed to it NHL roster today.
It should be noted, Cheveldayoff currently operates under a budget but it near impossible to speculate those conditions at this point. Under a scenario where Cheveldayoff was given the green light to spend to the cap, he would have $37 million in cap space to sign 14 more players.
Frolik signed a one year deal worth $3.3 million last summer. He going to get a raise. Call it $4 million for starters.
Byfuglien, 29, will make $6 million next year and Ladd, 29, will earn $4.5 million. They both want raises and significant term to stay in Winnipeg.
Byfuglien is having a major impact on the ice for the Jets this season after returning to the blue line. He was named an all star and if his second half duplicates his first, he will get Norris Trophy votes.
What will his value be? If you look at comparable, all star defencemen, a conservative estimate is $7.5 million.
Ladd is Winnipeg captain and among the team most consistent goal scorers. He developed into a 25 goal man with the potential to hit 30 or more in a banner season. On the open market, Ladd could ring the bell and
cheap Michael Kors handbags outlet sign with a contender. GMs all over the league covet this player. He won two Cups and understands what is required to succeed deep in the post season.
Evander Kane is Winnipeg highest paid forward at $6 million and one has to believe the bargaining for Ladd begins there.
These numbers could all be moot if any or
replica Michael Kors outlet all of these players elects
cheap Michael Kors handbags to test the market. They could all walk in free agency or force Cheveldayoff to trade them.
So before Cheveldayoff gets around to his RFAs, he likely have to commit north of $17 million to his three pending UFAs leaving him with $19.5 million to sign 11 more players.
Hutchinson, Lowry, Trouba and Scheifele will all be RFAs at the end of the 2015 16 season.
They all be line for raises and it hard to guess what the market will be for these individuals. Trouba could be a top pairing defenceman by that point and at worst Scheifele will be a No. 2 centre.
The four won eat up all of the remaining money but they take a major chunk of it. Cheveldayoff could find himself with less than $10 million remaining in cap space to fill seven more roster spots.
Cheveldayoff does have a raft of talented but young and inexpensive prospects close to coming on stream. They help ease the burden.
Can Cheveldayoff get it done? He proven to be adept at getting good value for his money.
Signing Frolik, Ladd and Byfuglien will be the biggest challenge and he
replica Michael Kors handbags can afford to overpay and be out of cash when it time to retain his draft picks and develop graduates.Articles Connexesï¼š
