This Guy’s Brilliant Reason for Hanging Trash Bags on His Door Has 160,000-Plus Americans Sharing With Friends in Florida conservativefighters.com

“…If you can’t get a hold of sandbags, Sweat explained he’s learned a trash bag one-third filled with water can make a “good substitute.” As for the garage, he noted that sealing it off with duct tape can be a good way to prevent “water intrusion.” He also added that paint cans and five-gallon buckets can serve as a good way to easily elevate furniture.

Even if you’re evacuating, he suggested that everyone trip the main breaker so the electricity in the house isn’t running. An electric current and water is a lethal combination; Sweat revealed that a volunteer, who went to check on a house, was electrocuted and killed because the power was on.

For those who didn’t evacuate, Sweat urged people to wear clothes to bed because “nothing looks worse than seeing people on the news in water-logged nightgowns and boxer shorts.”

His other tips included wearing hard-soled shoes and carrying identification, a flashlight, and a large white sheet to signal for help if necessary…”

Hurricane Irma Causes Ocean to Disappear in Bahamas
Susan Patterson –
September 9, 2017 thealternativedaily.com


“…Insane storm surge

The loss of the ocean is actually due to the proximity of Irma to the Bahamas and the storm’s low-pressure center. When a storm has such an intense low pressure, it can impact the surface of the water because there is less atmospheric pressure being applied. If you were to take a look at a cross section of the storm through the water you would see a bulging effect. This bulging is the storm surge that Irma borrowed from the area around the Bahamas. It is quite noticeable in Long Island because this is a shallow area with unvarying depth. This causes the impact to be so remarkable.
When will the water come back?

The ocean around Long Island will gradually come back as Irma moves on and she steals extra water under the low pressure from somewhere else…”

Hurricane Irma exposes racial tensions on smashed St. Martin By thomas adamson and danica m. coto, associated press MARIGOT, St. Martin — Sep 11, 2017, 3:23 PM ET abcnews.go.com
“… It’s common practice for tourists to be evacuated first from disaster zones for practical reasons, as they are staying in hotels and not in their homes and tend to have fewer resources such as food and vehicles. The French prime minister insisted Monday that the only people being prioritized were the most vulnerable.

Government spokesman Christophe Castaner said he understood islanders’ frustration with the government response but blamed part of the controversy on their “emotional shock, an impact that’s extremely hard psychologically.”

Bucs WR Bernard Reedy helps wheelchair-bound residents escape Hurricane Irma

“..While many Floridians have raced out of state to avoid Hurricane Irma, a brave few have put themselves in harm’s way to help others get to a safe place One of those such heroes is Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Bernard Reedy, who remained in the path of the storm to help wheelchair-bound residents escape the storm Heading into training camp, Reedy was somewhat of a long-shot to make the Bucs’ 53-man roster, but his special teams prowess and impressive speed helped him lock in a spot for Week 1 ..”

But he decided to give the transportation service a call and has worked to help people in the Tampa Bay area evacuate during the past few days as the storm arrives, the story says.

Reedy started the transportation-service position after he was cut by the Falcons in 2015 and saw a Care Ride van client being dropped off at a Burger King, the Tampa Bay Times reported.

He said he’d rather not sit at home after he’s done working out.

According to the newspaper, Care Ride administrator Doug Johnson jokingly offered earlier this month to raise Reedy’s salary to $13 per hour with the hopes of keeping Reedy…”

Destructive winds, rain hit Florida as Hurricane Irma’s makes landfall in the Keys

“..MIAMI — The fierce winds of Hurricane Irma regained Category 4 strength with winds of 130 mph early Sunday, as the storm’s eye made it to the lower Florida Keys just before 9 a.m. The massive storm already has caused hundreds of thousands of power outages across South Florida, its leading edge lashing several major population centers.

The National Weather Service said the storm made landfall at Cudjoe Key in the lower Florida Keys at 9:10 a.m. on Sunday morning. Forecasters warn that a second landfall could happen later on Sunday.

Officials said storm surges in the Keys reach a devastating five to 10 feet there before the hurricane slowly proceeds up the state’s west coast….

While the National Hurricane Center had downgraded Irma to a Category 3 storm Saturday, the storm was upgraded again to Category 4 early Sunday. At 5 a.m., weather officials said the storm was plodding northwest at about 8 miles per hour, placing it on pace to reach Naples by about 5 p.m. The storm could potentially make a second landfall further north on Sunday….”

Irma was downgraded on Sunday afternoon to a Category 3 hurricane, with maximum sustained winds near 120 miles per hour, down from 130 m.p.h., according to the National Hurricane Center. The center said that while the storm was weakening, it was “expected to remain a powerful hurricane.”

A $150 Billion Misfire: How Disaster Models Got Irma WrongBy Brian K Sullivan ‎September‎ ‎11‎, ‎2017‎ ‎6‎:‎50‎ ‎PM Updated on ‎September‎ ‎12‎, ‎2017‎ ‎12‎:‎10‎ ‎PM bloomberg.com
“..By one estimate, the total cost dropped to about $50 billion Monday from $200 billion over the weekend. The state escaped the worst because Irma’s eye shifted away from the biggest population center of Miami-Dade County.

The credit goes to the Bermuda High, which acts like a sort of traffic cop for the tropical North Atlantic Ocean. The circular system hovering over Bermuda jostled Irma onto northern Cuba Saturday, where being over land sapped it of some power, and then around the tip of the Florida peninsula, cutting down on storm surge damage on both coasts of the state.
….

…In the end, Irma landed on the Florida Keys as a Category 4 hurricane with 130-mile (209 kilometers) per hour winds, then as a Category 3 at Marco Island. It reached the Tampa Bay area as a Category 2. By contrast, Hurricane Andrew in 1992 plowed into the east side of Florida as a Category 5…”

Movie: Star Wars Series Reflections

As a tribute to the Star Wars (Disney made) new series in 2015, I made this music video…

ORIGINAL TRILOGY

Star Wars Movies | StarWars.com
There is a correct order to show your children the Star Wars movies October 24, 2014 theweek.com
“…Let’s say you grew up watching the Star Wars trilogy, then had children sometime after 1999, when George Lucas started releasing the prequels.

When your kids are old enough, what order should they watch the films in? The order they were released — Star Wars (A New Hope) (1977), The Empire Strikes Back (1980), and Return of the Jedi (1983), then The Phantom Menace (1999), Attack of the Clones (2002), and Revenge of the Sith (2005)? Or the order the events happened in the Star Wars universe: Phantom Menace (I), Attack of the Clones (II), Revenge of the Sith (III), New Hope (IV), Empire Strikes Back (V), and Return of the Jedi (VI)?

Rod Hilton, a computer programmer in Colorado, has given this a lot of thought, and he probably has the best solution. His (correct) instinct is to start with New Hope (IV), because if you start with Phantom Menace (I) you lose the essential shock of learning Luke’s parentage in Empire Strikes Back. But he also wants to end on a high note — so, none of the prequels. Here’s Hilton’s “Machete Order,” named after his blog, Absolutely No Machete Juggling:

Next time you want to introduce someone to Star Wars for the first time, watch the films with them in this order: IV, V, II, III, VI…”
Star Wars From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia en.wikipedia.org
“…is an American epic space opera franchise, centered on a film series created by George Lucas. It depicts the adventures of various characters “a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away”.

Update: Just watched it again (January 2nd 2016) and got this “relevation”-I was watching the scene where the evil guy tries to make Vader and his son Luke kill each other. He keeps telling Luke to “hate” (“let the hate flow through you…haha!”) and be “angry”. Fortunately, Luke remembers his teaching (mentored by Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda) to fight with “love“!

Spoiler Alert: Luke wins his dad’s heart through love and forgiveness..

5 Christian Messages Found in Star Wars crosswalk.com
It’s Never Too Late for Redemption

“At the very end of The Return of the Jedi, just when it seems that all hope is lost, something incredible happens. Darth Vader, the longstanding antagonist of the series, sacrifices himself to save his son and defeat the emperor. Vader had believed he was too far gone to ever find redemption. He had done so many terrible things, betrayed so many people. How could he ever be forgiven?

Luke, on the other hand (no pun intended), never lost faith in Vader. In fact, he believed so strongly he was willing to pay the ultimate price for his forgiveness. There are many people like Vadar who look back on their mistakes and think it’s too late, but they are wrong. I doesn’t matter how far we’ve strayed or how mangled we’ve become, Jesus gave his life so that we could be forgiven (John 3:16). God doesn’t need to save you, He already has…”

Rogue One review: this is the first Star Wars movie to acknowledge the whole franchise is about war Updated by Todd VanDerWerff@tvoti Dec 16, 2016, 11:14am EST vox.com
It’s often incoherent and messy. But it’s also beautiful and has a strong central theme.
“..But if the film is politically relevant, it’s only accidentally so, not intentionally. I say that not just because Rogue One was completed long before Donald Trump’s election or even Brexit, but because Edwards uses a kind of scattershot approach to political content in his films — he’ll give you just enough of an idea of what he’s going for, but he’s uninterested in pushing any further than that.

An early shot in Rogue One features Stormtroopers patrolling the streets of a city rife with tension between various factions, rolling around in a tank. At various moments, it calls to mind the US occupation of Iraq and police militarization of American cities. But it’s not entirely clear whether Edwards has thought about what these similarities might mean in the larger tapestry of Rogue One beyond “Do you get this reference?” It’s political commentary as Family Guy joke…”

How to be “not” in the world, but a “light” to the world?

ALCOHOL

As a Christian, this has been a challenge for me-how to be “not” in the world (see “92 Bible Verses about Being Like The World” from openbible.info) , but a “light” to the world (see 29 Bible Verses about Being A Light from openbible.info).

I’ve been to many parties where I meet these challenges. I’m always offered an “alcoholic” drink, but as I’ve gotten “older” I personally don’t care for it because I’ve gotten more health conscious. However, when I was “younger”, I would not hesitate because I wanted to “fit in” (cultural norm). I caught myself drinking too much than I could and got a little drunk, which I know is a “no no” in the Bible. As I grew more in my walk with God, I drank less and less-to avoid getting drunk.

I decided to write this because after a recent party, a friend (brother in Christ) was being frank that he was drinking because it’s part of the culture. He ended up talking my ear trying to give all of his reasons why he drank as a Christian (didn’t say this word for word, but just my interpretation because I’ve been in his shoes before). I then replied my personal reasons why I wasn’t drinking is because I’ve became more “health conscious” (see my new Health & Fitness Blog). God didn’t have the Bible to be a book of “don’t do this or do that” to prevent us having “fun”. He did this to protect us and keep us safe. It’s never mentioned that we shouldn’t drink (see 80 Bible Verses about Drinking Alcohol from openbible.info). Instead…

“And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit, “Ephesians 5:18

I ended up telling my brother in Christ my personal reasons for not drinking without quoting from the Bible as I know he knows already. I just told him I’ve grew to be more “health conscious” and see no health benefits to drinking alcohol. I’m tired of feeling “unhealthy” the day after drinking. I used to try to eat certain foods to get rid of the alcohol in my body. If I do drink (moderation) at certain parties (special occasions), I would take this detox pill (see my blog “Importance of Cleansing: Detoxification) to cleanse my liver of alcohol the following morning.

What boils down to is it’s between you and God. I have a friend (brother in Christ) who doesn’t touch alcohol period because he has a biological “gene” to be addicted to it. I say “Amen” brother! At least he know his “kryptonite” (e.g. bible verse on “flee from temptation“-2 Timothy 2). It’s an individual basis, what’s your personal story? I have another friend who has the “addiction” and any picture or anything that he sees, hears, smell, etc.. that associated with alcohol, he goes through “withdrawals” or “craving for alcohol” due to his early years of drinking and now struggling to fight over this addiction.

I’ll be sharing more alcohol-related stories more as they come to mind later, so stay tuned!
