Severe Storms Result in Missing in Regions Southwest of Austin Texas and Rogers County in Oklahoma May 25th 2015

Just southwest of Austin Texas, about 12 are missing from rough flooding.  In Oklahoma, the town of the Will Rogers Museum, is severe weather.

Severe Storms Sweep Regions in the U.S. in Mid May

May 18, 2015
Some areas have seen tornadoes, some areas rains with cloudiness markedly limiting visibility.

Preparation for more storms, and clean-up of the aftermath of what has already arrived in the past 2 weeks, in the same way varies from region to region.

On the east coast, Maryland, especially areas in and around Baltimore and north of the DC area, is currently experiencing conditions with flash flood preparations, limited visibility due to cloudiness, rough rains sporadically starting and stopping.  A full tornado comparable to what affected about a dozen states this past weekend does not appear to have actually materialized.

12 states that are reported to have experienced tornado shocks, degree of intensity aside, were:

Armenia Azerbaijan Relations at Border on the Border

February 17, 2015
The clock has been ticking, and border tensions between Armenia and Azerbaijan have been heating up.  Slowly, perhaps even softly, it is similar to cooking a frog-- claims exist of Armenia ceasefire violations somewhere in the several dozen times in one day; claims exist of Azerbaijan breaking ceasefire agreements in the thousands.  As soon as news stories are pulled up about the regions, the first things seen are camouflaged soldiers.  The site of soldiers pointing high powered rifles and guns at each other is not a good sign.  The intensity might have kicked over the threshold to a regional concern that might just wash away, to approaching a dark stark concern.  Who is right, who is wrong, it might not be that simple, it might not matter, and it might not even be a part of the situation.

Adding complexity, Turkey has recently asked Armenia to pull out of the one of the Azerbaijan regions.

There is a newly appointed U.S. Ambassador to Azerbaijan, in Sekuta.

U.S. Ambassador to Armenia, Mills, will take a hilt from an outgoing Heffern who stressed the strategy of halting clashes immediately, and that threats and military rhetoric will likely not solve anything [cf. http://www.cacianalyst.org/publications/field-reports/item/13041-mixed-reception-of-sochi-talks-in-azerbaijan.html].

Has Ebola Gone Beyond?

October 3, 2014

The Ebola situation, is one where if one is not careful, falling into the snares of other aspects of its lethalness besides direct passing of the virus, can become increasingly possible, even though it may not be the desire of all.

An illness that might be perceived as only affecting those in Africa, and perhaps only the less economically fortunate, may not be the reality.

Is complete and automatic exemption guaranteed?

The responsibilities that have to be carried out, have to be carried out, with proper wisdom and guidance.
