In this month's episode of the American Blue Economy Podcast, our host Admiral Tim Gallaudet guides us on the topic of coastal resilience We look at ways to achieve coastal resilience and how that contributes to the American Blue Economy by protecting communities and businesses. Our coasts are subject to a range of challenges, including those associated with climate change (addressed in October's podcast), tropical storms, pollution, invasive species, competing uses, erosion, hypoxia and harmful algal blooms, in addition to the COVID-caused economic downturn. With encouraging contributions from the following superstar cast of his former NOAA colleagues and partners, Admiral Gallaudet highlights the positive steps being taken to make coastal communities more resilient to them.

I was absolutely privileged to have former NASA Astronaut and ex-NOAA Administrator, Kathy Sullivan on my podcast. Kathy can be called a geologist, an oceanographer, a scientist, an astronaut and an explorer. From being the first American woman to walk in space during her Shuttle missions to becoming the first woman to dive to the Challenger Deep in the Mariana Trench, the world's deepest point, Kathy has had an incredible career. She was also the Under Secretary of Commerce for Oceans and Atmosphere and the Administrator of NOAA from 2014 to 2017. These days, among doing a number of other important things, Kathy hosts a podcast called Kathy Sullivan Explores, which I really recommend. In this episode, we talk about her astronaut journey, her experience diving to the world's deepest point, weather, the importance of providing intelligence over data and what action we can take with respect to climate change. I don't think a 40-minute episode is enough to get all her thoughts and advice, but I tried to cover different subjects. I hope you get inspired listening to Kathy as much as I did. ----- 01:54: Kathy's intro 03:41: Kathy's astronaut experience 09:20: The overview effect 15:45: Kathy's experience diving to the world's deepest point 20:30: The interconnectedness of the world 25:50 Kathy's journey at NOAA 28:02: Is weather a solved problem? 32:57: Providing "intelligence" over "data" 35:09: The importance of space for climate 36:37: What action can we take? 38:15: What's keeping Kathy busy these days 41:08: 1-line message for everyone -----

A strong geomagnetic storm watch has been issued by NOAA's Space Weather Prediction Center. The watch is in effect for today October 30 and tomorrow the 31st. Due to all the people trying to read up on the solar flare, the Space Weather Prediction Center's web site was knocked offline and still remains inaccessible as of early Saturday afternoon.We took some screenshots of the storm watch before their site went down, however. Link in the description to view them and read more about this strange phenomenon. Some are comparing it to 1859's historic solar flare, which disrupted telegraph and other electrical systems around the world.Today, a solar flare like the one back in 1859 could cause disruption to flights, could disrupt vehicles, and may fry parts of the power grid. Time will tell if anything happens, but at least a watch has been issued so people have time to prepare their electrical systems.Update- NOAA SWPC web site is back onlineEarlier: https://www.fulcrumnews.com/blog/2021/10/30/solar-cycle-25s-imminent-possible-geomagnetic-storm-could-rival-1859s-carrington-event https://www.fulcrumnews.com/blog/2021/10/29/breaking-strong-geomagnetic-storm-watch-g3-for-october-30-and-october-31-2021-issued-by-noaa Learn more about FULCRUM https://www.fulcrumnews.com/about Get the membership! https://www.fulcrumnews.com/subscribe Show community & discussion https://facebook.com/FulcrumNews https://minds.com/fulcrum_news

Guest: Tom Di LibertoIt's baaack!! The NOAA Climate Prediction Center recently announced that La Nina has returned and will likely remain with us throughout the 2021-2022 winter season. But what exactly does that mean for us? For the globe? Luckily, we have someone who can help shed some light on its potential impacts. Tom Di Liberto is a meteorologist at Collabralink Technologies, and throughout his career, he has been researching, forecasting, and blogging about ENSO events for NOAA's Climate Prediction Center. Today, we'll shed light on how these events form and discuss if climate change is impacting them. Plus, we'll touch on the upcoming UN Climate Change Conference known as COP26, which could impact climate change policies across the globe.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Kathleen opens the show drinking a Woodscraft IPA from Great Escape Beerworks in Springfield, MO. She then gives the Termites a summary of her birthday activity at her sister's house in Jefferson City, where her nieces and nephew made her a cake covered in animal faces to represent her yard. Kathleen then headed to Johnny Morris's Big Cedar Lodge in Branson, MO for a few days of fun golf with her siblings and friends, thrilled to be able to play Tiger Woods' Payne's Valley course while she was there. Kathleen was given a few birthday presents last week: Ron White gave her a new driver for her golf bag, her cousins gave her a pair of limited edition Hidden Valley Ranch Crocs (which she's excited to wear), and her friend Heidi gave her a cool Ranch cookbook and gallons of ranch dressing, which she'll put to good use the next time her nieces and nephews visit her house.TERMITE SHOUTOUTS: Kathleen gives thanks to the Termites who leave notes at shows and send mail to her PO Box. She begins by thanking Termite Denise for the “May I Please Have a Vodka Cranberry?” mask to wear on airplanes. Termites Kendra (who is a Liquor Inspector) and Sarah sent some fun “Bridgeport Badger” tees to celebrate their basement bar, and Termites Ashley and Joseph invited Kathleen to their wedding and sent a Ranch themed insulated cup that Kathleen can't wait to use on her boat. “GOOD BAD FOOD”: In her quest for new and delicious not-so-nutritious junk food AND in continuing her search for the best Ranch, Kathleen samples Scorchin' BBQ Pringles, which she finds to be WAY too hot. She moves on to taste Sir Kensington's Ranch, which is dairy-free and has a hint of dill in it. Kathleen gives it a thumbs-up, but she feels that the texture and tang makes it more of a dip than a dressing. She finishes her tasting with Charlie Gitto's Sweet Italian Vinaigrette from St. Louis, which she loves on a salad as part of a massive Italian dinner but will always prefer anything from Imo's (also a St. Louis original.)UPDATE ON KATHLEEN'S QUEEN'S COURT: Kathleen provides an update on the Queens, reporting that Queen Dolly has released a line of Christmas holiday cooking line with Williams Sonoma which is available to order now. Queen Tanya celebrated her birthday October 10th and posted a video of her cake, and Cher announced on Twitter that “she's back,” whatever that means to Queen Cher this week ☺ WALLY THE WALRUS WEBCAM: As a follow-up to Episode 56, Kathleen announces that Wally the Walrus has swum from Ireland to Iceland, where the Icelandic people have renamed him, Valli. A webcam has been set up so that people can watch a live stream of his activity. NRA REELECTS THEIR KING: Kathleen reads an update announcing that the NRA recently reelected their CEO, Wayne LaPierre. The NY Attorney General's office is suing to dissolve the NRA for allegedly misusing charitable funds, but the NRA feels as though the AG's office has a “misinformed view” of their unparalleled dedication to the Second Amendment. OOPS BRITNEY DID IT AGAIN: Waist-deep in the aftermath of the #FreeBritney movement, Kathleen shakes her head when reading an update that Britney Spears, temporarily free from her Conservatorship, has once again taken to Instagram to post a risqué video of her frolicking topless in the ocean. SHAKIRA ATTACKED BY WILD BOARS: Kathleen reads an article from Spain advising that in addition to Shakira's tax woes, the pop singer has also revealed that she and her son were recently attacked by a pair of wild boars in a park near Barcelona. The hogs attacked Shakira and stole her purse, which was documented in a series of Instagram Stories on the singer's account. Kathleen muses that the cause of the purse snatching must have been caused by “secret snacks” in Shakira's handbag, admitting that she also has secret treats in her travel purse with her favorites being Lance Crackers and Tootsie Pops (specifically the “red” kind.)MURDAUGH MURDER INVESTIGATION CONTINUES: Kathleen is fascinated with the ongoing news being released in South Carolina regarding the murders of Paul and Maggie Murdaugh and is thrilled to have been connected with journalist Mandy Matney via Twitter. Matney, along with her fiancé David, are the team investigating this corrupt family and all the cover-ups that have been made on their behalf for decades as they maintained power in a finite area of South Carolina, reporting their findings on their “Murdaugh Murders” podcast. Kathleen reads the latest development after the arrest of patriarch Alex Murdaugh, who is accused of being the mastermind behind the diversion of more than $3.5 million in death settlement money meant for the sons of his family's deceased housekeeper to an account said to be fraudulent.BARRY MANILOW SET TO BREAK ELVIS'S VEGAS RECORD: Kathleen is a massive fan of both Elvis and Barry Manilow, and is excited to read an article advising that although Elvis Presley holds the record for most performances in Vegas, Barry Manilow will pass him after signing a major deal that runs through 2023.Elvis Presley played a staggering 837 shows in Sin City, according to Showbiz 411, but Manilow's new contract with the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino will push him past that mark. SCIENCE IS HARD: Kathleen reads an article announcing the winner of the Nobel Prize in chemistry and laughs out loud because she doesn't understand ANY of the details explaining why the award was given. Benjamin List and David MacMillan received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2021 for their development of a precise new tool for molecular construction: organocatalysis. The technology has had a great impact on pharmaceutical research and has made chemistry greener. Kathleen reads the released a few times and states her ongoing position that “science is hard.”A CRYPTO TRADING HAMSTER: That's right, Termites. Kathleen reads an article about Mr. Goxx, a German hamster who is crushing the cryptocurrency market with his trading and outtrading human investors. Mr. Goxx initiates a trade by entering The Goxx Box, occasionally running on the “Intention Wheel” and then choosing either the “Buy” or “Sell” tunnel that will cause the transaction to take place. All trading activity is available to stream on Twitch (where he is listed as the CEO of Goxx Capital), or you can watch Mr. Goxx's YouTube channel for past activity ☺ MISSOURI CANNIBALS AND VICKI'S GUN: Kathleen is horrified to read an article from her home state of Missouri, where the FBI office in Kansas City received an anonymous tip on September 16th advising that a woman had been kidnapped and photos of her in a cage were being circulated on the Dark Web. Local law enforcement in Dallas County obtained a search warrant for James Phelps, who has since been arrested. Further investigation found that Phelps is a cannibal, and human remains have been located on his property. As this county isn't far from Kathleen's family “farm,” she shares that her mom is usually armed when walking the property, and everyone makes fun of her because she carries a gun to prevent animal attacks and “rape.” While the rape of an 80-year-old most likely isn't a concern in acres of Missouri backwoods, nobody in the Madigan clan ever thought a cannibal would be roaming the area. Stay tuned, Termites…THE OLDEST MAN IN THE WORLD DIES AT 127: Kathleen reads an article from the Guinness World Records team, announcing that at the age of 127 the oldest man who ever lived has died. OCEAN DRONE FILMS INTERIOR OF CAT 4 HURRICANE: Kathleen LOVES following extreme weather patterns, and is excited when she reads that a new ocean drone has captured footage from the inside of a major hurricane. The technology behind the Saildrone Explorer SD1045 battles 50-foot waves and 120mph winds, gathering scientific data that will help NOAA scientists improve their forecast models that predict rapid intensification of hurricanes.NAZI CAMP SECRETARY ATTEMPTS TO FLEE TRIAL: Kathleen reads an article about a 96-year-old woman who was scheduled to go on trial for war crimes as a Nazi secretary and fled into hiding. Irmgard Furchner left her home near Hamburg in a taxi a few hours before proceedings were due to start at the state courthouse. Despite her advanced age, the German woman was to be tried in juvenile court because she was under 21 at the time of the alleged crimes. Police detained her hours after her attempted escape, and the court is reviewing whether the flight attempt should be considered in her sentencing. APPLAUDING THE FACEBOOK WHISTLEBLOWER: Kathleen has a renowned hatred for Mark Zuckerberg's lack of accountability in monitoring false narratives and polarizing content on Facebook and applauds the recent actions of whistleblower Frances Haugen, a former data scientist at Facebook, whose Senatorial testimony has led to what may be the most threatening scandal in the company's history. Haugen provided a clear and detailed glimpse inside the notoriously secretive tech giant, stating that Facebook harms children, sows division, and undermines democracy in pursuit of breakneck growth and "astronomical profits." There is currently a decades-old law known as Section 230, which immunizes social media companies from being sued over what their users post, but lawmakers are examining possible carve-outs. WHAT TO WATCH THIS WEEK: Kathleen recommends watching the “Untold” series on Netflix, especially the episode called “Crimes and Penalties.” See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Jim Smith is Chairman of the Alabama Seafood Marketing Commission and Executive Chef of The Hummingbird Way. Chef Smith was the Executive Chef of the State of Alabama for eight years serving multiple Alabama Governor's. As the state chef, he has placed an emphasis on using the best local ingredients and has made strides to encourage support of local farmers and Alabama fishers. He used his position as ambassador of food, to promote farmer's markets and events that support Alabama food products. In 2011 he was crowned the King of American Seafood by winning The Great American Seafood-Cook-Off and became the national spokesperson for Alabama Seafood, American Sustainable Seafood, Gulf Seafood and the NOAA. As the winner he traveled the country educating the Americans about the benefits of sustainable seafood. As Chairman of the Alabama Seafood Marketing Commission, Chef Smith is proud to be a part of the great work being done to promote Alabama Seafood and Chef Advocate for Wild American Shrimp. He also works closely with The James Beard Foundation as a Boot Camp for Policy and Change Alum, supporter of James Beard Foundation's Smart Catch Sustainable Seafood program, and Scholarship Programs. Chef Smith is best known for his appearances on Seasons 14 and 16 of the acclaimed Bravo television cooking competition show, Top Chef. With a top ten finish and fan favorite support he proud of his competitive efforts and has high hopes for the future.    Pete and Jim on this episode talk through Jim's unique experiences in the food industry and how that gives him the edge in the industry. Pete and Jim open up talking about how Jim's time as the Governor's Chef taught him how to be organized and efficient as a cook since Jim would at times be cooking for hundreds of people and have to cook prep the food by himself. Jim gives insight on how executive chefs can stay organized and also, teach their staffs to be organized and lead the way rather than the executive chef handling everything organization wise because one person handling all of that is not going to be scalable as you grow as a business. When you have more people on the team the more chaotic it gets, therefore you must be meticulous in the kitchen if your restaurant is going to succeed long term.    Pete and Jim also discuss opening a restaurant and how Jim was his own investor by cashing out on many assets he had and how that freed him up to run his restaurant the way he desired and knew best. With that though there was great risk and Jim and Pete gives insight to those who are looking to open a restaurant how that process should look as you create a game plan for your restaurant.       Connect with Jim: Instagram, Website The Hummingbird Way: Website, Instagram, Connect with Pete: Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, The MessLords, PRFOUNDATION Pete's Restaurants: PaniniPetes, SunsetPointe, Ed'sSeafoodShed, Squidink,

Midwesterners Are Breathing Smoky Air From California Wildfires

Blood-red sunsets in the Midwest are striking but ominous illustrations of new data: Parts of the Midwest are being exposed to more wildfire smoke from the West Coast and Canada compared to more than a decade ago. Experts say the impact of the smoke on health in the region is a concern.Meteorological patterns — weather, air currents, fronts — sweep wildfire smoke hundreds of miles across the country. Nowhere in the Midwest is this increased exposure to wildfire smoke more pronounced than in western Nebraska. Take the case of Scottsbluff, a city of about 15,000 in Nebraska's panhandle. From 2016 to 2020, Scottsbluff experienced a 45% increase in days on which wildfire smoke was in the atmosphere. That's compared to an earlier period that was analyzed, from 2009 to 2013.A year ago in Scottsbluff the concentration of particulate matter — tiny pieces of debris suspended in the air — exceeded the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) standards. That was a result of smoke sweeping into western Nebraska from wildfires in Canada.Western and central Kansas also saw meaningful increases in smoke days, according to a data analysis conducted by NPR California Newsroom and the Stanford University Environmental Change and Human Outcomes Lab.“Although we see variability from year to year, the trend appears to be increasing impacts of smoke across Kansas over the last several years,” said Matt Lara, a spokesman with the Kansas Department of Health and Environment in an email.Lara said the effect from smoke may be mostly in the upper atmosphere, causing hazy skies and dramatic sunset. He added that sometimes, such as late July and early August this year, federal air standards for daily particulate matter are exceeded. “Some of these impacts may not be surface based but upper atmosphere and cause hazy skies and dramatic sunsets but others, such as late July and early August this year did cause air monitoring sites to exceed the federal air quality standards for daily particulate matter.”‘Expect this to get worse'Health and meteorology experts say the growing presence of wildfire smoke in parts of Kansas and Nebraska could pose health risks to those who breathe it in. That concern is compounded, given the likelihood that vast and intense fires from California and surrounding areas will persist.“All the science -- and there's a lot of science on this -- suggests if we don't change our game on this, people should expect this to get worse,” said Burke, who helped NPR's California Newsroom assemble its smoke data. “It's going to be worse in the West, but it's certainly going to get worse in the Midwest as well as more people are exposed to smoke from fires in the West.”The analysis relied on satellite images captured every few hours by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) that showed plumes of smoke billowing into the atmosphere from western wildfires. Those images were then plotted over nearly every zip code across the continental United States to show the areas where the wildfire smoke reaches.Smoky skies, clear effectsIn California and more broadly along the West Coast, the growing frequency and intensity of wildfire pose clear air quality and health risks.The NPR California Newsroom analysis examined data from state health facilities and found there were 30,000 more hospitalizations from cardiac and respiratory conditions in 2018, which was a record year for fires at the time.Shawn Jacobs, the warning coordination meteorologist at the North Platte National Weather Service office, said that the climate in central and western Nebraska may play a role in how smoke is distributed in the region. The state's climate becomes more aird west of Kearney, Nebraska, and the lack of moisture allows for greater temperature swings. More fluctuation means more movement, preventing the smoke from settling, Jacobs said. These trends are being noticed by western Nebraskans.“So much so that there are times when people have called us and asked, ‘Is there a fire nearby?' because we're seeing this smoke,” Jacobs said.Colleen Reid, an assistant professor of geography at the University of Colorado who studies the impacts of wildfire smoke, said the health effects are clear when there are high concentrations of smoke in the air.That risk arises from tiny particles that are so small they can pass into the bloodstream from the lungs when people breathe.The particulate matter can lead to asthma, cardiovascular problems and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.The health risks are less clear the further the smoke travels.“In terms of the Midwest where you're getting the smoke transmitted long distances, there needs to be more research to understand whether the long-range transport changes the way it affects health,” Reid said.Where skies are clearerThe presence of smoke is relatively muted in areas like eastern Kansas and Nebraska, as well as Iowa and Missouri. Wide swaths of northwest Missouri had modest increases in exposure to smoke, but many areas of the state had decreases in smoke days during the two periods analyzed by the NPR California Newsroom and Stanford.The presence of wildfire smoke does not often exceed EPA standards for air quality in the Midwest, and it has never been enough to result in a violation of the Clean Air Act. Even so, EPA officials keep an eye on wildfire smoke migrating from the west to the Midwest.“It is something that is on our radar; it's a concern,” said Lance Avey, an air and radiation division meteorologist for the EPA's Region 7, which covers Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa and Missouri.Doug Norsby, air quality planner with the Mid-America Regional Council, said that while the occurrence of poor air quality days in the Kansas City region from wildfire smoke are infrequent, the presence of particulate matter from smoke is an issue that has captured the organization's attention.“I would say it's a flashing warning light on our mental dashboard,” said Norsby.The EPA is currently evaluating particulate matter from wildfire smoke and other sources to determine whether it should change its air quality standards. That review happens every five years.Why wildfires?Experts said two main causes have triggered the increase in wildfires along the West Coast, Canada and the Rockies. One is the tendency to extinguish small fires that, if allowed to burn, would clear acres of leaf litter and dead wood. Without those smaller fires, dry leaves and wood ignites and leads to the more intense and out-of-control fires that have plagued California and other western states in recent years.“The Smokey The Bear campaign has been really successful,” said Marshall Burke, associate professor in Stanford University's Department of Earth System Science. “What do we do when a fire starts? We put them out.”Burke said California should carry out prescribed burns — also known as controlled burns — on more than 1 million acres of land in California each year. “We're not doing anything close to that,” Burke said.Reduced rainfall and rising temperatures from climate change also make for stronger wildfires.Those blood-red sunsets are a telltale sign of smoke in the air.Eric James, a scientist with NOAA's global systems laboratory, said large fires that pump smoke into the upper atmosphere enter the jet stream and can travel across the continental United States.“We see this most years, this long-range transport of smoke,” James said “It has gotten more intense in the last few years from what we've seen.”The Midwest has the occasional wildfire, as well as controlled burns in places like the Flint Hills in Kansas. But James said most of the wildfire smoke in the Midwest is attributed to western blazes.“I think the majority of the impact is from these large forest fires in the Pacific coastal states, Colorado and the intermountain west,” James said.

The 2021 Atlantic hurricane season is half-way through and, like 2020, is expected to be another above-normal Atlantic hurricane season as estimated by NOAA's Climate Prediction Center. As of September 14, 2021, there have been over a dozen named storms, including three major hurricanes, Grace, Ida, and Larry, that reached Category 3 status or higher. Climate computer models predict that rising ocean temperatures—warm water being fuel for hurricanes—impact storm activity; but does this mean that as our planet warms, hurricanes are actually becoming stronger and more destructive? Alok Patel speaks with climate scientists and a hurricane researcher to get inside the anatomy of tropical storms, and to better understand what the evidence shows, and what we can expect for the future.

In this special episode of the American Blue Economy Podcast, our host Rear Admiral (ret) Tim Gallaudet interviews renowned ocean explorer Dr. Robert Ballard about his book Into the Deep: A Memoir from the Man Who Found Titanic. Ocean mapping and exploration contribute to every component of the American Blue Economy, and we learn about many of Ballard's innovative advances in the field. Longtime colleagues, Gallaudet and BalIard discuss their common connections and experience in ocean science, technology, and adventure. From the extreme depths of the deep sea to the Halls of Congress, we discover that Ballard did much more than discovering famous shipwrecks and never-before seen scientific findings. He helped establish NOAA's Office for Ocean Exploration and Research, and he influenced the acquisition of the agency's first dedicated exploration ship Okeanos Explorer. We learn that Gallaudet pursued a career in Naval Oceanography after seeing Ballard give a presentation on the Titanic at the US Naval Academy, and coming full circle 3 decades later with NOAA, he led development of the National Ocean Exploration Strategy and Plan based on Ballard's vision. The most compelling piece is learning about the person that is this great discoverer - the son, brother, father, husband, friend, and human being. Come dive into one of the most epic episodes this year!

Are we really ready for what is coming, Hunter S. Thompson a week after 9/11, Yale study - climate change in the American mind, this summer was hotter than the Dust Bowl summer, & leaked IPCC report. Written by Hunter S. Thompson a week after 9/11 - "We are At War now, according to President Bush, and I take him at his word. He also says this War might last for "a very long time." Generals and military scholars will tell you that eight or 10 years is actually not such a long time in the span of human history -- which is no doubt true -- but history also tells us that 10 years of martial law and a war-time economy are going to feel like a Lifetime to people who are in their twenties today. The poor bastards of what will forever be known as Generation Z are doomed to be the first generation of Americans who will grow up with a lower standard of living than their parents enjoyed. That is extremely heavy news, and it will take a while for it to sink in. The 22 babies born in New York City while the World Trade Center burned will never know what they missed. The last half of the 20th century will seem like a wild party for rich kids, compared to what's coming now. The party's over, folks." Yale study - climate change in the American mind - source "46% of Americans still believe climate change is "natural" or "not happening." 25% are worried about it. A mere 15% think they will be harmed from the fallout, and just 10% have put any real effort into changing their lifestyle. 63% of people have made no lifestyle changes since 2008." This summer was hotter than the Dust Bowl summer, NOAA says - source "The period from June through August this year was the hottest on record in the United States, exceeding even the Dust Bowl summer of 1936, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said on Thursday." "We leaked the upcoming IPCC report!" - Scientist Rebellion - source "We have leaked part III of the upcoming IPCC report. There's no time to wait around, there's no time for continued inaction – the people deserve to know NOW what our corporate owned politicians have done to them. The greatest crime ever has already been carried out – the perpetrators are still at liberty, but the victims are starting to pile up. We leaked the report because governments – pressured and bribed by fossil fuel and other industries, protecting their failed ideology and avoiding accountability – have edited the conclusions before official reports were released in the past. We leaked it to show that scientists are willing to disobey and take personal risk to inform the public. We plead with people to go into serious nonviolent resistance. To join us in the streets to apply unbearable pressure on this genocidal system – to take it down before it takes us all down with it."

Trainiere dein Hörverstehen mit den Nachrichten der Deutschen Welle von Samstag – als Text und als verständlich gesprochene Audio-Datei.Sieben-Tage-Inzidenz in Deutschland steigt weiter Die Zahl der mit dem Coronavirus infizierten Menschen in Deutschland nimmt wieder stärker zu. Dem Robert-Koch-Institut (RKI) wurden von den Gesundheitsämtern 5644 neue Positiv-Tests gemeldet. Das sind 2438 mehr als am Samstag vor einer Woche. Die Sieben-Tage-Inzidenz stieg auf 32,7 von 30,1 am Vortag. Bundesgesundheitsminister Jens Spahn (CDU) stellt sich laut einem Bericht der "Bild"-Zeitung auf einen weiteren Anstieg der Neuinfektionen und neue Corona-Restriktionen ein. "Die vierte Welle kommt", sagte er demnach in einer Sitzung der Unionsfraktion im Bundestag. Viele Verstöße bei Einreisen aus Risikogebieten Die Bundespolizei hat seit Januar rund 150.000 Verstöße bei Einreisen aus Corona-Risikogebieten festgestellt. Es geht vor allem um die Pflicht zur Einreiseanmeldung, die nicht eingehalten wurde. Wie die Behörde dem RedaktionsNetzwerk Deutschland (RND) mitteilte, wurden die meisten Verstöße bei Einreisen auf dem Landweg festgestellt. Hier wurden 132.000 Verstöße registriert. Auch an den Flughäfen kontrolliert die Bundespolizei seit November 2020 stichprobenartig die Anmeldepflicht. USA üben scharfe Kritik an Afghanistans Regierung Die US-Regierung hat der afghanischen Führung und den Sicherheitskräften angesichts des Vormarsches der Taliban mangelnde Kampfbereitschaft vorgeworfen. Es sei "beunruhigend" zu sehen, dass die politische und militärische Führung nicht den Willen gehabt habe, sich den militanten Islamisten zu widersetzen, sagte Pentagon-Sprecher John Kirby. Um ihr Personal in der Hauptstadt Kabul zu schützen, verlegen die USA 3000 Soldaten dorthin. 5000 weitere Soldaten werden zudem im Nahen Osten stationiert, um als Verstärkung bereitzustehen. Regierung und Opposition in Venezuela vereinbaren Dialog Im südamerikanischen Krisenstaat Venezuela haben sich Regierung und Opposition auf neue Gespräche verständigt. Unter Vermittlung Norwegens erklärten sich beide Seiten bereit, über einen Ausweg aus der jahrelangen Krise zu beraten. "Sie haben den mutigen Beschluss gefasst, einen umfassenden Verhandlungsprozess einzuleiten", sagte Dag Nylander, Chef der norwegischen Vermittlungsdelegation, in Mexiko-Stadt, wo die Gespräche stattfinden sollen. Nylander hatte auch schon an den Friedensverhandlungen zwischen der kolumbianischen Regierung und der FARC-Guerilla teilgenommen. Viele Tote durch Überschwemmungen in der Türkei Bei den schweren Überschwemmungen in der türkischen Schwarzmeer-Region sind nach neuen Angaben mindestens 38 Menschen ums Leben gekommen. Wie die Katastrophenschutzbehörde mitteilte, werden zudem mehrere Menschen vermisst. Der türkische Präsident Recep Tayyip Erdogan besuchte die betroffenen Gebiete. Einige der Bewohner machten ihrer Wut über die örtlichen Behörden Luft. Diese hätten nicht rechtzeitig vor den Wassermassen gewarnt. Juli sprengt nach US-Angaben alle Hitzerekorde Der vergangene Monat war nach Messungen der US-Klimabehörde NOAA weltweit der wärmste Juli seit Beginn der Aufzeichnungen im Jahr 1880. Die Durchschnittstemperatur über Land- und Ozeanflächen habe um 0,93 Grad Celsius über dem Durchschnittswert des 20. Jahrhunderts von 15,8 Grad gelegen, teilte die NOAA mit. Damit übertraf der Juli 2021 die gleichen Monate der Jahre 2016, 2019 und 2020 - laut NOAA die bisherigen Rekordhalter - um 0,01 Grad Celsius. Gladbach ärgert Bayern beim Auftakt der neuen Bundesliga-Saison Titelverteidiger Bayern München hat einen erfolgreichen Start in die 59. Saison der Fußball-Bundesliga verpasst.

RUSH: I am holding this latest story right here in my formerly nicotine stained fingers: “Forecasters See Less Active '06 Hurricane Season” (Gasping.) “The United States hurricane season will be slightly less intense this year than first predicted with nine hurricanes expected to form, government forecasters said on Tuesday, but they warned the most dangerous part of the season was still to come.” Really? We know this. The peak is in the middle of September. NOAA “said the 2006 season could produce between 12 to 15 named storms, with seven to nine becoming hurricanes and three or four of them being classified as ‘major' hurricanes that could threaten the U.S. Atlantic and Gulf coasts.” Now, you know, I want to be very careful here because these people have a tough job. They have incredible expectations placed on them, and those expectations are not helped by all the media hype about hurricanes and disasters and so forth, but come on. Does anybody really expect that they can tell you in April or March what's going to happen in a hurricane season? They think they do, but the best that we can do is issue a wild guess based on data that we have collected and analyzed in computers over a number of years in the past. Remember we were told a new cycle here? Global warming was a debated topic as to whether or not it affected hurricanes, but regardless, new cycle, intense hurricanes, lot more of them, brace yourselves! https://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2006/08/08/global_warming_hurricane_forecasters_were_wrong/ Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com

Photo:  La Niña, the counterpart to El Nino, alters rainfall patterns over the Pacific and Indian Ocean basins. La Nina develops when stronger-than-average trade winds push the warm surface waters of the equatorial Pacific west.  Since cold water rises to replace the warm water, La Nina leaves the eastern and central Pacific Ocean much cooler than normal, while the western Pacific is much warmer than normal.  These anomalies in sea surface temperature are mirrored in rainfall patterns, with warmer-than-normal temperatures resulting in enhanced rainfall.  In general, La Nina brings unusually heavy rain to the West Pacific, Indonesia, parts of Southeast Asia, and northern Australia. Jeff Bliss @JCBliss #PacificWatch  La Niña will not bring relief. Jeff Bliss @JCBliss #PacificWatch  California drought: La Niña could dash hopes of desperately needed rain this winter -- The punishing drought conditions afflicting most of California are expected to endure for months, climate experts with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association said Thursday.
