Tsunami balls almost ready and will save you from violent death

No.108843 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
It’s been six years since a local engineer had his ah-ha moment while on vacation on the Oregon Coast, wondering why coastal communities don’t have better tsunami evacuation plans.

>But now the Survival Capsule he has engineered, tested, and created is ready and could give people an alternative to running from tsunami-generated waves.

>Mukilteo engineer Julian Sharpe’s capsules tether to the ground and rise and fall with the water. They are designed to handle large impacts, fire, and other tsunami-related damage.

>The Survival Capsules, as they’re now known, have been well-received in Japan and are on the verge of hitting the U.S. market.

>“We hope to start selling officially in Japan in the first half of next year,” Sharpe said. “As far as the domestic market is concerned, we have decided to launch the two-person capsule next month officially.”

>Sharpe says that first U.S. Survival Capsule will be installed on the Long Beach Peninsula. He exhales deeply when asked about how long it took to get to this point, saying he’s glad he has a “day job,” which is his aerospace company, Idea. But he knows he’s breaking new ground.

>“We’re developing a product, we’re creating the market, and we’re also changing people’s mindset … that is, if they don’t have a horizontal and vertical evacuation, we’re giving them this third option.”

>But this third option is likely out of many people’s price range, including those who need the capsule the most. They are still made by hand. The two-person models cost between $13,000 and $15,000.

Rush Limbaugh Ridicules Robert Reich For FAKE ‘Right Wing Rioters’ Claim

No.108421 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread

>Radio host Rush Limbaugh discussed the riots at UC Berkeley that shut down Breitbart Senior editor MILO’s scheduled event on his show again today, ridiculing former Labor Secretary Robert B. Reich for suggesting that the rioters were right-wing plants.

>“The labor secretary, former labor secretary, Robert B. Reichhhh,” said Rush, “claims that the protesters in Berkeley were actually hired by Breitbart. That it was a Breitbart false flag. (laughing) They weren’t really leftists that were doing this. Go to the audio sound bites. Last night on CNN Tonight, Don Lemon speaking with the former Secretary of Labor for Clinton, said, “The violence we saw at Berkeley, it plays right into the hands of the right-wing white supremacists, you know, the people at Breitbart. What do you think about that, Mr. Secretary?”

>“They’re proud of these anarchists. They’re proud of the people who blow up bank buildings. They’re proud of the people that start fires. They never blame them. They never try to pass it off as fake protesters hired by Republicans. (chuckles) Until now. Why now? Why would it be…? Why don’t they embrace these people? Why isn’t former labor secretary Reichhhh and the rest of the left embracing these people and giving them a bunch of attaboys? Why aren’t they encouraging ’em?”

Why are libtard authority figures now openly embracing tinfoil hat conspiracy theories and not accepting responsibility for the left wing terrorism they have helped cause?

Hamilton police hunting for blueberry bandit

No.109791 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
Hamilton police are investigating the theft of a refrigeration truck full of blueberries from Stoney Creek last weekend.

The burgled berries – about $100,000 worth of them, police say – disappeared from 555 Seaman Dr. sometime between 3 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. Feb. 5.

Const. Steve Welton said Wednesday he didn’t know if the blueberries are fresh or frozen – or somewhere in between, depending on the state of the stolen refrigeration unit.

He didn’t immediately have information about the number or weight of the purloined pints, but for reference sake, 170-gram boxes of blueberries are selling for nearly $4 each at Fortinos at the moment.

Police later found the stolen truck in the Toronto area, but the trailer and its tasty cargo are still missing.

Recognizing the public taste for this sort of berry hunt, police have posted “Have you seen these berries?” messages on Facebook and Twitter

“We’re hoping to have some fun through engagement, but also for tips about what is an unusual theft,” Welton said. “Maybe you notice someone is in the blueberry business who hasn’t been before.”

This isn’t the first garden-variety heist pulled off in Hamilton. Last December, police were on the hunt for more than 10,000 misappropriated melons stolen from a Barton Street East parking lot.

Environmental warming

> Temperatures in the Arctic are skyrocketing — for the third time this winter

> the jet stream’s flow to become more “wavy,” for instance — in ways that can affect weather systems in the North Atlantic.
This has been obvious for years. The jet stream is having fibrillations; a heart-attack.

> But he added that an increase in the frequency of temperature extremes at the North Pole is just another indicator of climate change’s disproportionate effect on the Arctic.
It's the extremes are killing us.

> “There’s more and more evidence that the Arctic, especially, is warming quite dramatically and that we should expect to see more of these events,” he said.
> “I think it’s just more evidence that the climate is, in fact, changing.”
More data that the ignorant people will ignore. This is what makes an ignorant person; ignorant people can't change, learn or face reasonable and likely truths that demands maturity, responsibility and civility.
