Off Topic / Huge Snowstorm to hit the Northeast
« on: February 07, 2013, 07:27:23 PM »
So yeah, a huge one is coming!

As a major winter storm made its way up the Atlantic Coast on Thursday, local authorities from New York City to Maine began to make preparations for what forecasters said could be the heaviest snowfall for some cities in the Northeast in a century.

Airlines began announcing the suspension of flights out of New York and Boston airports starting Friday night, as thousands of workers readied their plows, checked their stocks of salt and braced for what will most likely be a cold, wet weekend. Amtrak announced that it would suspend northbound service out of Penn Station in New York and southbound service out of Boston beginning early Friday afternoon.

On Long Island, where some forecasts said there could be more than 18 inches of snow, the power company, which has received heavy criticism for its response to Hurricane Sandy, promised customers that they were prepared.

The city of Boston, where forecasts called for more than two feet of snow to fall by Saturday, announced that it would close all schools on Friday, joining other localities in trying to get ahead of the storm and keep people off the roads.

“We are taking this storm very seriously and you should take this storm very seriously,” said Jerome Hauer, the New York State Commissioner of the Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services, at an afternoon news conference.

“If you don’t have to go to work tomorrow, we suggest that you do not,” he said. “If you do, we suggest that you plan for an early departure.”

The latest forecasts, he said, called for between 12 and 20 inches of snow in the New York City region and wind gusts that could exceed 60 miles per hour.

However, with the storm still some distance away, forecasters warned that predictions could change. The first sign of the storm will be a dusting of light snow that is expected to start falling across the region Friday morning.

At some point Friday night, the arctic jet stream will drop down from Canada and intersect with the polar jet stream, which usually travels through the lower 48 states.

“They will cross somewhere between New Jersey and Nantucket,” said Tim Morrin, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service. “That is where the center of the storm will deepen and explosively develop.”

If the current models hold, the storm could rival the blizzard of 1978 in New England, when more than 27 inches of snow fell in Boston and surrounding cities. That storm, which occurred on a weekday, resulted in dozens of deaths and crippled the region for days.

Peter Judge, a spokesman for the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency, said more than 20 agencies had gathered at the agency’s operations center in Framingham, Mass., where they were preparing for a historic storm.

“From our perspective, this is a very severe, blizzard-type storm that we haven’t had for quite a long time,” Mr. Judge said. “Worst-case scenario, this will be the worst one that we’ve dealt with in many, many years. I can’t even come up with something comparable.”

Officials prepared for debris management, snow removal and supplies distribution, he said, as well as widespread power failures, which he said were the major concern. “People will lose their heat when they lose their power, and they’re certainly much more in harm’s way than at other times of the year,” he said.

Boston was bracing for the worst of the storm to hit between 2 and 5 p.m. Friday. Gov. Deval Patrick, who called the pending storm “a serious weather event,” has ordered all nonemergency personnel to work from home Friday and encouraged private employers to keep their workers home.

Governor Patrick asked that all vehicles stay off the roads after noon on Friday and said the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority, including all subway, buses and commuter rail services, would close at 3:30. He said mass transit was being kept open until 3:30 to allow the first shift of emergency and hospital workers to get home and the second shift to get to work.

Boston public schools will be shut, and the governor encouraged all other school districts in the state to cancel classes.

Off Topic / $20 on Steam, What to Buy

I have $20 for Steam.

What games do you recommend?

Don't ask for what kind of game, it can be anything.

I know I'm getting:


And he is a handicap

Here's the story:

So I'm coming out of the cafeteria and he's in front of me. Eventually we arrive in class, but the teacher is not there. As I'm walking, he drops a pen. By accident, I kick it, leading to a chain reaction of the pen ending up down the hall. Now remember that I didn't even see the pen! He proceeds to punch me (hard as hell) in the stomach. And yes, it hurt, even though he's not as strong as me. When he gets the pen, I apologize to him about the pen. It only traveled 10 yards at the most. He clicks the pen (meaning the point is out) and stabs me with it. Nobody else say it, and I just fell to the floor. In class, he said that I deserved it, which of course I didn't. I went to the bathroom next period and saw that I was bleeding. Not as if I was shot or the pen went through my body, but it was bleeding. It stung for a while, but I survived.

He did stuff to me all year long. He punches me a lot, stabs me lightly, took my watch and got something all over it. But was this necessary for him to do?

After all the times he treated me like stuff, our friendship is over.

Now we're friends again

I personally like Rock and Metal.

After I get a few more genres I will make a poll.

Can you find a way to not replace the word got in a sentence?

My teacher in Language Arts has a daily contest. She hates the word "got". If we tell her a sentence that cannot be replaced by "got", that person gets (She's OK with the word "get" or "gets") $10 into this checking book thingy. This is a ton of money because she normally gives us 5 cents or 10 cents for good stuff that we do. That money can be exchanged for a gift card. I have $2.76 right now (since September but I lost it for 2 months).

Senences that could be used

forgetface got a PS3 for Christmas (You can replace got with recieved)
He got himself a new forums account as an alt. (Replace got with bought)

Sentences that con't be used

We are not allowed to use the word "got" in Mrs. forgetface's class (It needs to be in a verb tense)
He had a "got" all over his shirt (Someone said this, don't be handicapped please)

Help me please?

Off Topic / Horse DNA found in burgers in Ireland
« on: January 15, 2013, 04:53:32 PM »
Quote from:
The Food Safety Authority of Ireland has said that horse DNA has been found in some beef burger products on sale in supermarkets.
The meat came from two processing plants in Ireland, Liffey Meats and Silvercrest Foods, as well as the Dalepak Hambleton plant in the UK.
The burgers were on sale in Tesco, Dunnes Stores, Lidl, Aldi and Iceland.
A total of 27 products were brown townysed, with ten of them containing horse DNA, while 23 of them tested positive for pig DNA.
Horse meat accounted for approximately 29% of the meat content in one sample from Tesco.
The FSAI said that the findings do not pose a risk to public health.
However, it said that it raises concerns about the traceability of meat ingredients.
Retailers have said they are now removing all implicated batches of the beef burgers.
Minister for Agriculture Simon Coveney has told the IFA AGM that he is "very annoyed" at the discovery of horse meat in burgers.
He said he learned about the FSAI survey results last night and had vets testing at the factory concerned since early this morning.
Mr Coveney said the factory concerned was in Monaghan.
He said he wanted to find out "how on earth" a test result of 29% horsemeat in a beef burger could come from a factory that does not slaughter horses or buy horsemeat.
He said he hoped to have the results in about 48 hours.
Mr Coveney said it looked like the source of the horsemeat came from additives which had been mostly imported from abroad, and added to beef to bulk up cheaper burgers at the low end of the market.
To applause from the farmers present, Minister Coveney said he would "make damn sure" this never happened again.
He said it was important to respond quickly and comprehensively to reassure people without delay.
He said it was important not to give Ireland's beef-producing competitors any reason to focus negatively on Ireland's food.
He said Ireland could pride itself on having the best traceability systems in the world and the best testing systems.
He reiterated the assurance given by the Food Safety Authority that there was no food safety issue whatsoever attached to these burgers.
IFA President John Bryan expressed his surprise and concern at the results of the FSAI burgers survey.
Mr Bryan said he welcomed the FSAI's assurance that there was no threat to humans from the consumption of these products.
He said the mixed meat products certainly did not come from Irish farmers, adding that whatever had happened did not take place at farm level.
He said Irish farmers had gone to great expense to ensure full traceability from birth to slaughter of all animals.
He said he hoped the Department of Agriculture investigation would clear up what had happened quickly as it was important to protect Irish farming.
Silvercrest suspects 'third party suppliers'
A spokesperson for Silvercrest Foods said the company had never "purchased or traded in equine product".
He said: "[Silvercrest] has launched a full-scale investigation into two continental European third party suppliers who are the suspected source of the product in question."
Tesco said that the brands affected in its stores are the Tesco Everyday Value brand and Flamehouse Chargrilled Quarter Pounders.
It said that it "will not tolerate any compromise in the quality of the food" it sells and is viewing the presence of horse meat in its beef products as "extremely serious".
Aldi said it has removed the Oakhurst brand of beef burgers and customers can receive a refund if they purchased any of the products.
Liffey Meats 'has identified source'
Speaking this evening, a spokesperson for Liffey Meats said: “The company believes it has identified the source of the contamination. Liffey Meats is purely a beef processor and has absolute traceability on all of the beef used.
“The source of the contamination is imported ingredients and these will be replaced from other sources before production is resumed and customers are supplied.
"As confirmed by the FSAI the products concerned represent no risk to human health.
“In two of the three samples the levels as reported by the FSAI are so low as to be at the Limit of Quantification (LOQ) and for the other sample the level detected is reported as being less than 0.1%.
"We sincerely regret that any product produced by the Company would not conform to the highest specifications and sincerely apologise to our customers".

Nope not planning to eat Irish burgers anymore...


Ok so, I decided to make some videos of Pivot (if you don't know what it is, here's a link)

Does anyone know how to export the animations into Windows Live Movie Maker?
