Monday Briefing: Heat Index to 106, Tiger Bay’s 1st Lunch, Wetlands Restoration, Charter Schools

| September 17, 2018

NASA solar flares

No wonder it’s been hot. Not just latrely. Actually that picture is from 2012 when, according to NASA, “a long standing solar filament suddenly erupted into space producing an energetic Coronal Mass Ejection (CME). The filament had been held up for days by the Sun’s ever changing magnetic field and the timing of the eruption was unexpected. Watched closely by the Sun-orbiting Solar Dynamics Observatory, the resulting explosion shot electrons and ions into the Solar System, some of which arrived at Earth three days later and impacted Earth’s magnetosphere, causing visible aurorae. Loops of plasma surrounding an active region can be seen above the erupting filament in the featuredultraviolet image. Although the Sun is now in a relatively inactive state of its 11-year cycle, unexpected holes have opened in the Sun’s corona allowing an excess of charged particles to stream into space. As before, these charged particles are creating auroras.” (NASA)

Tonight: Partly cloudy. Chance of showers and slight chance of thunderstorms in the evening, then slight chance of showers and thunderstorms after midnight. Lows in the lower 70s.

Today’s Briefing: Quick Links

“Jack Bauer saved Los Angeles. . . . He saved hundreds of thousands of lives. . . . Are you going to convict Jack Bauer? Say that criminal law is against him? You have the right to a jury trial? Is any jury going to convict Jack Bauer? I don’t think so. So the question is really whether we really believe in these absolutes. And ought we believe in these absolutes?”

–Justice Antonin Scalia, cited in Joan Biskupic’s “American Original: The Life and Constitution of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia” (2009).

    @After the sales pitch – a few questions about school days would be interesting

    “Tiger Bay Luncheon: Husein Cumber, Executive Vice President for Corporate Development for Florida East Coast Industries, is the speaker at the Flagler Tiger Bay Club’s first luncheon, at 11:30 a.m. at the Hammock Beach Club, 200 Ocean Crest Drive in Palm Coast. FECI is one of Florida’s largest commercial real estate, transportation and infrastructure companies…”

    From Mr. Cumber’s Wikipedia entry:

    “…Cumber was born in Coral Gables, Florida to Aftab and Gul Cumber. He was raised in Coral Springs, Florida, and graduated from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in 1993.[3] Cumber earned a B.A. in U.S. National Security from Duke University in 1997.[4]…”

    “…In 2007, Cumber donated $300,000 to his alma mater, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School located in Parkland, Florida, to construct a football stadium on the campus in his parents’ name. Stoneman Douglas opened its doors in 1990 without a football stadium. Until the completion of Cumber Stadium in the fall of 2007, the football team, the Eagles, played all “home” games at nearby Coral Springs High School.[3]…”
