Ominous Hurricane Dorian churn over the ocean in footage from ISS

Cameras affixed to the International Space Station filmed Hurricane Dorian brewing over the Atlantic Ocean on Thursday afternoon. National Hurricane Center forecasters expect the cyclone to hit Florida as a powerful Category 4 storm around Labor Day, ultimately packing some 130 mph winds. Over the next few days the storm will increasingly strengthen as it travels over some exceptionally warm waters (warm oceans fuel hurricanes). "No matter where you live along the U.S. southeast coast, and into the Gulf of Mexico, this is a storm to pay attention to," Brian Tang, an atmospheric scientist at the University of Albany, told Mashable on Wednesday. The hurricane will be helped along by a number of favorable (for a storm) atmospheric conditions.



Namely, the storm is forecast to experience very little wind shear — opposing winds that weaken or rip apart hurricanes. There's little ahead that can stop the storm. "The shear environment is very weak," Jeff Weber, a meteorologist at the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research, explained Wednesday. "The storm is not being torn apart." Dorian arrives right on time, as peak hurricane season is just right around the corner. Tropical storm activity in the Atlantic usually ramps up after Labor Day. While there isn't a trend of more hurricanes forming in the Atlantic Ocean, there is evidence that hurricanes are growing stronger, and hurricane scientists expect this trend to continue in the coming decades. Dorian is forecast to pass over "very warm" surface waters off The Bahamas, noted Weber. This will likely amplify the storm. Warm waters can, and have, supercharged recent, major hurricanes. Research has shown remarkably warm waters have outweighed other factors in allowing recent storms to intensify into powerful cyclones. What's more, the overall oceans — which absorb more than 90 percent of the heat generated by human activities — are now continually, relentlessly warming.

New One Piece Chapter 955 Makes Unexpected Alliance

When something serious is about to go down in the popular franchise One Piece chapter 955, creator Eiichiro Oda lets you know in the most dramatic way possible: by Beast Pirates And Bigmom Pirates Alliance. Seven days before the raid of Onigashima, Kawamatsu succeeded in obtaining a large number of swords their forces can use for the battle. Along with this, Zoro finally agrees to return the Shusui to the people of Wano in exchange of Enma. Princess Hiyori insisted on the return of the sword as they considered it a relic to the country. She expressed that the country of Wano has been in much tribulation ever since the sword was taken from them, and hopes that the return of Shusui will bring good fortune once again to the country.


Zoro probably agrees because of Hiyori’s tale that the Enma – her own father’s sword – was the only blade to ever injure Kaido in battle. And knowing Zoro’s interest in legendary swords, he would probably want to test if the tales were true. The last time w…

Spider-Man Dead: New Upcoming Marvel Comic Unsettling Truth

It seems that Spider-Man goes to have a brush with death in an upcoming comic of Marvel’s Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man. Marvel despatched new solicitation details about points #11 and #12 of the Tom Taylor-written collection to publishers, revealing that Spidey might be discovered lifeless in Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man issue 12.



“Spider-Man day has been and gone,” Taylor mentioned in a tweet when the information broke on Friday. “So, now’s time to say Spidey dies in our Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man #12.” It should come as no shock to most comic e-book readers that this supposed dying of Spider-Man is much less deadly than it seems. In any case, Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man #13 is already solicited, and Amazing Spider-Man continues to be ongoing. Additionally, the textual solicitation content for the comic means that Spider-Man must resolve his personal murder.



Maybe that’s not the real Spider-Man who’s discovered lifeless then? One other chance entails the story te…
