My Two Cents: Nashville Predators Continue Historic Stanley Cup Run

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – They say the Stanley Cup is the hardest trophy to hoist.  Well, if you’re a Predators fan, you know this all too well.  We’re not there yet, but what a battle it’s been. 

This amazing team has rolled through Chicago and St. Louis and has taken the best shots that Anaheim has thrown at them.  Anaheim has turned this series into a gutter brawl.  Cheap shots, low blows and hits AFTER the whistle, but,  WE’RE STILL STANDING!  In fact, we lead the series, 3-2.

While highly unlikely, that was the high-consequence scenario discussed by attendees at an October 25th NASA-FEMA tabletop exercise in El Segundo, California.

The third in a series of exercises hosted jointly by NASA and FEMA — the Federal Emergency Management Agency — the simulation was designed to strengthen the collaboration between the two agencies, which have Administration direction to lead the U.S. response.

NASA Study compares two types of Southern California Fires

 

Written by Alan Buis
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – A new University of California/NASA study finds Southern California autumn wildfires driven by Santa Ana winds have been 10 times as costly in the past 20 years as summer wildfires, even though both types of fires have consumed about the same total acreage.

Both types of fires are predicted to increase by midcentury, but non-Santa Ana fires are expected to increase more.

The research could assist policymakers and response agencies in better allocating firefighting resources in the future.
