  • Science: El Niño Has A 50% Chance Of Making a Comeback This Summer

    There is a 50% chance that El Niño will arrive in full-force this summer bringing with it temperatures that scientists are saying could be “in near record-breaking territory.” El Niño, the weather phenomenon brought on by the warming of the Pacific Ocean, may be making a comeback this summer, leading to warmer temperatures but also rainier weather. NOAA released a report giving El Niño a 50 percent chance of developing this summer or fall, which could bring the U.S. a much milder winter next year, a relief after the recent bitter cold. Meteorologists say El Niño’s arrival may lead to fewer Atlantic hurricanes and seriously benefit parts of California and the southwestern United States, both suffering from terrible droughts. But it could also lead to potential losses in food crops and a much hotter year across the globe. So after never being able to go outside during the freezing winter, you won’t be able to stand the outdoors in the summer either. Via: NY Mag

  • Super Bowl XLVIII Starters’ Salaries (infographic)

    Last night Super Bowl XLVIII took place and was lopsided to say the least. The Seahawks dominated the game from the get go and have the Lombardi trophy in their grasp. At the end of the day, however, all the players on the field are really all winners. With the Sylvester Williams trailing the salaries of Super Bowl starters at $426,000, I’d say every player waking up today in their Jersey City luxury hotel room should have a smile on their face.

  • Thomas Morgenstern, Three-time Olympic Champion Ski Jumper, Injured In Horrific Crash [Video + Photos]

    TAUPLITZ, Austria (AP) — Three-time Olympic ski jump champion Thomas Morgenstern of Austria was hospitalized with skull injuries and a bruised lung on Friday after crashing during training for this weekend’s ski flying World Cup. “Thomas Morgenstern is conscious and well responsive,” the Austrian ski federation said in statement hours after the incident, adding the athlete’s condition would be monitored in the intensive care unit of a Salzburg hospital for the next 72 hours. Morgenstern’s injuries were not life-threatening, head of clinic Josef Obrist told the Austria Press Agency. “He has a serious injury and he has to be monitored fulltime,” said Obrist, adding that Morgenstern was responsive and gave clear answers. During his second training jump of the day, the 27-year-old Morgenstern lost his balance in the air, turned over to the left and landed on his back and head. He briefly lost consciousness but was able to speak shortly afterward. “Fortunately he was responsive, Thomas can move arms and legs. That’s very important,” team physician Herbert Leitner said. “He asked me what happened.” Morgenstern received first aid on the hill and was flown by helicopter to the hospital, head coach Alexander Pointner said. “We can only hope for more »

  • Is Today the Day After Tomorrow?

    The phrase of the day is “polar vortex.”  To clear up the confusion, ‘polar vortex’ is not the name of an Alaskan heavy metal band, an MLS expansion team, or the new Kim Stanley Robinson novel. No, the polar vortex is the reason you had to wear three pairs of thermal socks today. CNN’s International senior meteorologist Brandon Miller explains: The polar vortex, as it sounds, is circulation of strong, upper-level winds that normally surround the northern pole in a counterclockwise direction — a polar low-pressure system.  These winds tend to keep the bitter cold air locked in the Arctic regions of the Northern Hemisphere. It is not a single storm. On occasion, this vortex can become distorted and dip much farther south than you would normally find it, allowing cold air to spill southward. That’s the science behind the phenomenon.  Here’s a collection of photos: Hold up. Sorry, those photos were from the 2004 sci-fi flic The Day After Tomorrow (via IMDB.com). Here are a few eerily similar-looking photos of the effects of the polar vortex on several actual American locations:   Brrrrrrrrrrrrr

  • Posters Visualizing SMH Client Feedback

    Everyone has someone to answer to. A boss, a client, a coworker; and they all have opinions. Sometimes it may be constructive criticism, but sometimes people talk, because they like hearing the sound of their own voice, unbeknownst of their own word vomit. A site called Clients from Hell, several Irish creative companies joined forces on a series called “Sharp Suits”… “Ad creatives, designers, animators, directors, illustrators and more took time out to dress up their favourite worst feedback from clients, transforming quotes that would normally give you a twitch, into a diverse collection of posters.” Let’s just remember that these quotes are from the people keeping the lights on.
