These contain billions of tons of fast-moving solar particles as well as the magnetic field that binds them.

A blend of moist air and frigid temperatures coated surfaces around Baton Rouge with a sheen of frost early Friday, but roads that had closed overnight to protect drivers from Winter Storm Jasper reopened by morning thanks to lower-than-forecast precipitation. Still, with risk of freezing rain and sleet all but gone, officials urged people to prepare for bitterly cold weather entering the weekend. Temperatures from the River Parishes all the way north to the Louisiana-Mississippi line could dip well below freezing overnight Friday through Saturday, officials said. “For those who need to take care of their outdoor spigots or whatever it may be, now’s the time,” said Benjamin Schott, chief meteorologist for the National Weather Service’s Slidell office. The NWS hard-freeze warning means areas north of I-10 and I-12 could see temperatures into the low-20s between Friday and Saturday mornings. Baton Rouge emerges from overnight freeze with slick roads, icy glaze … [Read more...] about Sub-30 temps expected to hit Baton Rouge area this weekend. Here’s how you can prepare.
I have no wish to play down the relevance of madness to poetry. In England the two have long been allied, never more fruitfully than in the age of the French Revolution, when the roster of mad poets carried many of the illustrious names of the day: Christopher Smart, William Collins, William Cowper, and, most illustrious of all, William Blake. In the last twenty years American poetry and madness have entered into an alliance closer still.Madness can be construed—and is by some poets — as the regular and inescapable concomitant of the reach beyond reality; and sanity is construed as the dullness of those who refrain from reaching. Is it only coincidence that poetry in the last two decades has come into the full uses of madness as of an instrument? After the First World War many poets decided, rightly, that to be true was more important than to be understood. Not to be understood, moreover, ceased to be the mere common and perennial fate of the poet, a fate to be suffered. It became … [Read more...] about Madness in the New Poetry

More info The Commission, led by President Ursula von der Leyen, wants to declare not just wind and solar energy to be “sustainable”, but also gas and nuclear power – at least for a transitional period as it chases net zero carbon emission goals. This, it said, would make nuclear power plants easier to finance.

I keep getting this ad for the Noom app, served up with so many YouTube videos and cable TV shows that I feel uniquely targeted by them. It begins with a supercut of an attractive young man clearing plate after plate at restaurants, waving off waiters while a folksy cover of “Where Is My Mind” by The Pixies plays. Then he stares agape at his phone while his bros sit around him eating snacks and drinking beer. “I was conditioned to finish my plate since childhood?” he says, astonished; we see a flashback of a kid mopping up the last of an egg while his father glares at him. “When it comes to losing weight, it’s psychological,” the voiceover says. The message: Noom is different . It will help you get thinner the smart way. Much of Noom’s advertising leans on this “not like the other girls” characterization. “Stop going on a diet. Start going on Noom,” one ad says. “The last weight loss program you’ll ever need,” another says. The people who work there use the same framing. “We … [Read more...] about Noom Isn’t Reinventing The Diet Wheel
