  • IRMA Predicting Weather with Spaghetti?

    The Weather Channel, ‘SPAGHETTI MODELS’  for Hurricane Irma showed  many potential paths for the storm.

    SEP 2, 2017 THE EUROPEAN MODEL (ECMWF)  kept  the storm tracking further west, nearing the Bahamas by the end of next week

    Who said, IRMA was not an easy storm to forecast,  as computer SPAGETTI models disagreed with one another on important details right up until landfall?

    JAN 13, 2016 – WE’VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT THIS IN THE WEATHER BIZ SINCE THE 90S, BUT IT… …

    ONE OF THEM IS THAT THE EUROPEAN MODEL (ECMWF)   IS ALWAYS BETTER THAN THE GFS. (GLOBAL FORECAST SYSTEM) …

    —————————————————————————-

    THE TOO LATE  GFS PREDICTION THAT DETERMINED IRMA’S LAND FALL  AND EVACUATION IN FLORIDA WAS TOO BIG TO IGNORE.

    BECAUSE ON SEP 2, 2017 IT WAS  THE EUROPEAN MODEL (ECMWF)  THAT PREDICTED  THE STORM TRACKING FURTHER WEST…. And, the entire world  knows the rest of that story….

    AFTER THE FACT, The Canadian News media noticed, and asked on The National, “Why didn’t the U.S. use the European model for predicting Hurricane IRMA?”

    ————————————————————————

    WHY INDEED, THE FAILURE OF (GFS) IS  TOO BIG TO BE IGNORED BY PRESIDENT TRUMP.

    IRMA Predicting Weather with Spaghetti?

    Predicting and evacuating 6 million people in Florida, the largest mass evacuation in U.S. history, based on the inferior (GFS) Spaghetti model decision is too big to be ignored by the Trump Administration and  We the American people. Specifically?  the U.S Department of Energy’s engagement in and with…  and/or dis-connect with the (ECMWF).

    ——————————————————————

    The History of the WA DC Establishment’s Tactic’s, Process and Progress….

    I’m sure you’ve heard the saying, “throw spaghetti against the wall and see what sticks.” It’s a common way to describe the process of testing many different tactics at the same time in order to identify what works (sticks) and what doesn’t work (falls to the floor).

    ——————————————————-

    In spite of the too late GFS, IRMA land fall predictions for Florida, a higher authority prevailed,

    In God we trust, and with President Trump we the people  shall prevail.

    Under the administration of President Trump, to date,  68 lives were lost to Hurricane Irma.

    And, under the Trump Administration 82 lives were lost to Hurricane Harvey

    SEP 6, 2017 – Note: This story was written during the afternoon of Wednesday, Sept. 6. As of Thursday morning, the forecasts discussed within are still more …A potentially catastrophic hurricane will approach southern Florida this weekend.

    Eric Berger – 9/6/2017, 12:10 PM

    Take a look at this plot of a bunch of different models from Wednesday morning. Note the dark blue line on the left-hand side of the forecast tracks—that’s the official track forecast from the National Hurricane Center that was issued at 5am ET.

    THE US ANALOG TO THE EUROPEAN MODEL (ECMWF),  IS THE GLOBAL FORECAST SYSTEM (GFS). It has a lower resolution, and it typically doesn’t perform quite as well. The European model runs every 12 hours, so when the forecast plot was made, National Hurricane Center forecasters were working off of the 00z run, which typically comes out at about 2:30am ET. The ensemble forecasts (about 50 runs on a lower resolution model with slightly different initial conditions) typically follow about an hour later. Here’s what that ensemble data looked like for forecasters on Wednesday morning.

    CLICK ON THE LINK TO SEE the  forecast model spaghetti plot for Hurricane Irma, with an official forecast track in dark blue.

    Now, you may be wondering, “Why is the official forecast so far to the left, when all of the other models had moved east?” THE ANSWER IS THE EUROPEAN MODEL. This forecast system has superior hardware to run its calculations. But more importantly, it has a method by which it better assimilates real-world data—observations from weather networks around the world, atmospheric soundings, reconnaissance aircraft, and much more—into its calculations.

    FRI SEP 8, 2017  BASED ON IRMA’S PROJECTED PATH, WHICH INCLUDES Florida’s heavily populated eastern coast, the enormous storm could create one of the largest mass evacuations in US history, CNN senior meteorologist Dave Hennen said. Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties combined have about 6 million people.

    FRI SEP 8, 2017  THOUGH NOBODY KNOWS EXACTLY WHERE IRMA WILL MAKE LANDFALL, the governors of Georgia and South Carolina decided not to take any chances. They ordered mandatory evacuations of low-lying coastal areas around Savannah and Charleston.

    Other eastern Florida population centers could also see similar evacuations soon, depending on the path of the hurricane, which is expected to near Miami on Sunday.

    —————————————————————————-

    For more than a week, meteorologists had insisted that the storm would travel west along the Cuban shore before suddenly shifting north toward the Florida peninsula.

    ABC News meteorologists warned Irma could threaten a wide area of the US coast ranging from Mobile, Alabama, to the Outer Banks of North Carolina and said the forecast cone of uncertainty is now very close to including parts of southern Florida and Miami. THE EUROPEAN MODEL kept  the storm tracking further west.

    Hurricane Irma again demonstrated the inferiority of the top U.S. weather model

    Hurricane Irma is one more in a long line of storms to shine a spotlight on problems with the GFS, particularly at intermediate to longer timescales. The issue gained prominence after Hurricane Sandy struck New Jersey in October 2012, which the European model hinted at at least a week in advance. The GFS model, however, didn’t catch on to the storm’s unusual track until about 5 days in advance. 

    ————————————————————————

    So Why Is the Euro Better?
    Many in the U.S. were embarrassed when the Euro beat the GFS badly for Sandy. It even got Congress whipped into a lather, and they approved tens of millions to upgrade the computers at NOAA — the agency that runs the National Weather Service. NOAA just announced that their Supercomputer is “running at record speed,” and that it “secures the U.S. reputation as a world leader…”“A” world leader, but not “THE” world leader…

    How do I know that? You can call it “chaos,” “The Butterfly Effect,” or simply “poorer initialization.” This gets complicated, but the basic story is: “garbage in, garbage out.” OK, it’s not garbage — it just isn’t as good as the way the Euro does it.

    The reason weather forecasts can never be perfect is that we can never perfectly input the exact current conditions all over the world — at all levels of the atmosphere. We’d need to measure every cubic inch of the earth!

    MIT meteorologist Edward Lorenz is credited with recognizing how chaos theory applies to weather forecasting. His famous paper in 1972 was titled: “Predictability: Does the Flap of a Butterfly’s Wings in Brazil Set Off a Tornado in Texas?” So, something as seemingly small and trivial as a butterfly flap could lead to changes in weather patterns around the world days, weeks, or months later. Small initial errors lead to bigger and bigger errors over time.

    So, the more accurate a computer model can get the current conditions, the more accurate the model is likely to be. Sure, there are dozens of other factors, but it’s like giving the Euro a 10-yard head start in a 100-yard dash. It’s possible to win, but awfully hard.

  • ESPN Robert Lee Back to Orwell’s “1984”?

    Today, Stonewall Jackson. Tomorrow, Michael, Reggie and Jackson Hole

    Some may see this as a pell-mell rush to replicate George Orwell’s “1984,” in which “every statue and street and building has been renamed.” But I don’t think it goes far enough.

    By Dana Milbank Opinion writer August 23, 2017  at 6:11 PM (full text below)

    If something is worth doing in America, it’s worth overdoing.

    ESPN proved this eternal truth anew this week when it announced that, in response to the violence in Charlottesville, it was removing announcer Robert Lee from broadcasting the University of Virginia football game in Charlottesville — because he has the same name as the Confederate commander Robert E. Lee. ESPN’s Lee is Asian American.

    Detailed summary of George Orwell Novel Nineteen Eighty-Four (1984) by Colette COLMERAUER : PART 1 Chapter 1 ……

    The story of Winston Smith begins on a bright cold day.

    He works for the Ministry of Truth, which deals with news, education, entertainment and art.

    Added for clarity “1984” …. Winston Smith is a member of the Outer Party. He works in the Records Department in the Ministry of Truth, rewriting and distorting history. To escape Big Brother’s tyranny, at least inside his own mind, Winston begins a diary — an act punishable by death.

    There are three other Ministries:

    The Ministry of Plenty dealing with Economic Affairs

    The Ministry of Love dealing with law and torture

    And, the Ministry of Peace which deals with war and defence

    Everywhere in London there are giant posters of a dark eyed man with a moustache and a motto “Big Brother is looking at you”. Winston comes back home from work to his one room apartment.

    In this room a big telescreen transmits and receives non-stop information, so that you can be watched or listened to at anytime.

    But there is an alcove besides where he believes he cannot be seen. So he sits there and begins writing a journal, on an old book bought in an antiques shop. He writes the date: 4 April 1984.

    If something is worth doing in America, it’s worth overdoing.

    ESPN proved this eternal truth anew this week when it announced that, in response to the violence in Charlottesville, it was removing announcer Robert Lee from broadcasting the University of Virginia football game in Charlottesville — because he has the same name as the Confederate commander Robert E. Lee. ESPN’s Lee is Asian American.

    Similar caution just led the University of Houston to change the name of its Calhoun Lofts dorm because it shares a name with the 19th-century vice president and white supremacist John C. Calhoun, even though, a university spokeswoman told the Houston Chronicle, “the residence hall was not named in recognition of John C. Calhoun” but a nearby street.

    In Atlanta, likewise, protesters last week attempted to tear down that city’s Peace Monument, apparently mistaking it for a Confederate shrine. The sculpture was erected to honor those who worked for reunification during Reconstruction.

    The movement to remove Confederate monuments can be a healthy one, if done legally, according to the wishes of local citizens and in such a way that preserves this history without glorifying it. But from across this great land come reminders that nothing in America succeeds like excess.

    New York Mayor Bill de Blasio announced a 90-day review of any statues on city property that could be “symbols of hate.” New Yorkers are now taking aim at the Christopher Columbus statue in Columbus Circle and the tomb of Ulysses S. Grant.

    Some object to the Theodore Roosevelt statue outside the Museum of Natural History, and others suggest the name “New York” itself may have to go because the Duke of York was a slave trader. New York chef Tom Colicchio dropped the name of his new restaurant because it was named after a building that was named after 19th-century publishers who had racist views.

    There’s a movement in Massachusetts to rename Boston’s Faneuil Hall, cradle of the Revolution, because the 1742 structure was built by a slave trader and owner, Peter Faneuil. Residents of Philadelphia and Seattle, not to be left out, want to remove statues of, respectively, Frank Rizzo and Vladimir Lenin.

    Some may see this as a pell-mell rush to replicate George Orwell’s “1984,” in which “every statue and street and building has been renamed.” But I don’t think it goes far enough.

    If we are to purge ourselves of Robert E. Lee (and ESPN’s Robert Lee) we must avoid confusion by renaming or replacing all things with names similar to the Confederate general’s: Bruce Lee, Tommy Lee, Spike Lee, Harper Lee, Bobby Lee, Lee jeans, Lee Majors and Lee Iacocca.

    It won’t do simply to rename schools named for the Confederate Gen. J.E.B. Stuart. We’re going to have to rename Stuart Little, Stuart the Minion from “Despicable Me,” Jon Stewart, Martha Stewart and Jeb Bush. All statues of Jubal Early must come down. So must all things that share names with this Confederate general: early-bird specials, early morning, early retirement, early voting and early NBA-draft entry.

    If Confederate hero Nathan Bedford Forrest must go, so must the Redwood forest. Also the Gulf Stream waters. Fort A.P. Hill, an army base named for a Confederate general, must be renamed. So must Capitol Hill, Beacon Hill, Nob Hill, Bunker Hill, the Sugarhill Gang, Blueberry Hill, and Bill and Hill.

    Let us dispense with Jefferson Davis, by all means — but take with him Miles Davis, Sammy Davis Jr., Davis Love, the Davis Cup, the University of California at Davis, the Jefferson Hotel, Thomas Jefferson, George Jefferson, Louise “Weezy” Jefferson, Jefferson Pierce (Black Lightning) and especially Jefferson Beauregard Sessions, who also shares a name with Confederate Gen. P.G.T. Beauregard. Now that New Orleans has taken down its Beauregard statue, we’re also going to have to relocate Bo Jackson, Bo Derek and Bo Diddley.

    Memorials to Confederate Gen. Leonidas Polk cannot be moved without also erasing all trace of President James Polk, polka dances, polka dots, Hawaiian poke and Pokémon. Picket lines must be outlawed and picket fences flattened to avoid honoring Gen. George Pickett, and I will stonewall any attempt to disappear Gen. Thomas Jackson without also renaming Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Reggie Jackson, Percy Jackson, Action Jackson and Jackson Hole.

    I regret to say we must also rename my Washington Post colleague Philip Rucker, who shares a name with (though is not related to) Confederate Gen. Edmund Rucker.

    That’s asking a lot of Phil, but we all must do our share. I will be demanding a new name for my public high school, Calhoun High School. It’s not named for John C. but for Sanford H., a 20th-century New York school administrator who, to the best of my knowledge, did not own slaves. But you can’t be too careful.

    Full unedited text….

    Obscene, Indecent and Profane Broadcasts Guide.

    Federal law prohibits obscene, indecent and profane content from being broadcast on the radio or TV.  That may seem clear enough, but determining what obscene, indecent and profane mean can be difficult, depending on who you talk to.

    In the Supreme Court’s 1964 landmark case on obscenity and pornography, Justice Stewart Potter famously wrote: “I know it when I see it.”  That case still influences FCC rules today, and complaints from the public about broadcasting objectionable content drive the enforcement of those rules.

    In other words, if you “know it when you see it” and find it objectionable, you can tell the FCC and ask us to check into it.

    Deciding what’s obscene, indecent or profane

    Each type of content has a distinct definition:

    Obscene content does not have protection by the First Amendment.  For content to be ruled obscene, it must meet a three-pronged test established by the Supreme Court: It must appeal to an average person’s prurient interest; depict or describe sexual conduct in a “patently offensive” way; and, taken as a whole, lack serious literary, artistic, political or scientific value.

    Indecent content portrays sexual or excretory organs or activities in a way that does not meet the three-prong test for obscenity.

    PROFANE, content includes “grossly offensive” language that is considered a public nuisance.

    Factors in determining how FCC rules apply include the specific nature of the content, the time of day it was broadcast and the context in which the broadcast took place.

    Broadcasting obscene content is prohibited by law at all times of the day. Indecent and PROFANE, content are prohibited on broadcast TV and radio between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m., when there is a reasonable risk that children may be in the audience.

    What about cable, satellite TV and satellite radio?

    Because obscenity is not protected by the First Amendment, it is prohibited on cable, satellite and broadcast TV and radio.  However, the same rules for indecency and profanity do not apply to cable, satellite TV and satellite radio because they are subscription services.

    ENFORCING THE RULES

    Enforcement of the obscenity, indecency and profanity rules usually begins with complaints from the public that FCC staff review for possible violations. If an investigation is warranted and the FCC finds a station in violation of its rules, it has the authority to revoke a station license, impose a fine or issue a warning.

    What information should I include in an obscenity, indecency or profanity complaint with the FCC?

    When filing a complaint, please include the following information:

    • Date and time of the broadcast.
    • The call sign, channel and/or frequency of the station.
    • Details of what was actually said or depicted during the broadcast.

    Detailed complaints are helpful for analyzing the context of offensive language, images or scenes and determining possible rule violations. It is also helpful (but not a requirement) to include a recording or transcript of a broadcast when possible, though any documentation you provide becomes part of the FCC’s records and may not be returned.

    ———————————————————————————-.

    THE FCC AND FREEDOM OF SPEECH

    Full unedited text….

    FCC and Freedom of Speech Guide (pdf)

    The Federal Communications Commission receives numerous complaints that television and/or radio networks, stations or their employees or guests have broadcast extreme, incorrect or somehow improper political, economic or social statements.

    In some cases, the complaints allege that certain broadcast statements may endanger the United States or its people, or threaten our form of government, our economic system or established institutions like family or marriage. They say these statements are “un-American” and an abuse of freedom of speech. The FCC also receives complaints that some broadcast statements criticize, ridicule, “stereotype” or demean individuals or groups because of the religion, race, nationality, gender or other characteristics of the group or individual.

    FINALLY, MANY CONSUMERS COMPLAIN THAT TELEVISION OR RADIO BROADCASTS ARE OBSCENE, INDECENT, PROFANE OR OTHERWISE OFFENSIVE.

    WHAT IS THE FCC’S RESPONSIBILITY?

    The FCC is barred by law from trying to prevent the broadcast of any point of view. The Communications Act prohibits the FCC from censoring broadcast material, in most cases, and from making any regulation that would interfere with freedom of speech.

    EXPRESSIONS OF VIEWS THAT “DO NOT” INVOLVE A “CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER OF SERIOUS, SUBSTANTIVE EVIL” COME UNDER THE PROTECTION OF THE CONSTITUTION, WHICH GUARANTEES FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND FREEDOM OF THE PRESS AND PREVENTS SUPPRESSION OF THESE EXPRESSIONS BY THE FCC.

    According to an FCC opinion on this subject, “the public interest is best served by permitting free expression of views.” This principle ensures that the most diverse and opposing opinions will be expressed, even though some may be highly offensive.

    THE FCC, HOWEVER, DOES HAVE ENFORCEMENT RESPONSIBILITIES IN CERTAIN LIMITED INSTANCES. For example, the Courts have said that indecent material is protected by the First Amendment to the Constitution AND CANNOT BE BANNED ENTIRELY.

    IT MAY BE RESTRICTED, HOWEVER, IN ORDER TO AVOID ITS BROADCAST WHEN THERE IS A REASONABLE RISK THAT CHILDREN MAY BE IN THE AUDIENCE. BETWEEN 6 A.M. AND 10 P.M. (when there is the greatest likelihood that children may be watching,) airing indecent material is prohibited by FCC rules.

    Broadcasters are required to schedule their programming accordingly or face enforcement action. Similarly, the Commission has stated that profane material is prohibited between 6 A.M. and 10 P.M.

    Finally, the courts have ruled that obscene material is not protected by the First Amendment and cannot be broadcast at any time. For more information about these rules, see our consumer guide.

    WHAT ARE THE BROADCASTERS’ RESPONSIBILITIES?

    Individual radio and television station licensees are responsible for selecting all broadcast matter and for determining how their stations can best serve their communities. Broadcast licensees are responsible for choosing both the entertainment programming and the programming concerning local issues, news, public affairs, religion, sports and other subjects to be aired by the station. They also decide how their programs, including call-in shows, will be conducted and whether or not to edit or reschedule programs or material (for example, moving a program to a time slot during which children may not be listening or watching).

    WHAT IF I HAVE A COMMENT AND/OR CONCERN ABOUT A SPECIFIC BROADCAST OR STATEMENT?

    If you consider a broadcast obscene, indecent, or PROFANE, you can file a complaint with the FCC. Factors in determining how FCC rules apply include the specific nature of the content, the time of day it was broadcast and the context in which the broadcast took place.
