The first tropical storm of the 2014 Atlantic hurricane season has formed off the east coast of Florida, and will pester much of the U.S. East Coast between now and the July 4 holiday weekend. 

Named Arthur, it is the latest first tropical storm (in any given season) to form in the Atlantic since 2004.

Arthur is forecast to crawl up the Southeast coast over the next two days, slowly strengthening. 

The National Hurricane Center predicts Arthur will then reach category 1 hurricane early Friday, July 4, when it lifts north from the North Carolina Outer Banks to offshore the Delmarva Peninsula.

At present, the storm is stalled just 70 miles east of Vero Beach, Fla. and about 70 miles north of Freeport, Bahamas. 

 Thus far, its development has been slow. But conditions are favorable for slow strengthening and multiple aircraft flying int…


Debut of the 5-Day Graphical Tropical Weather Outlook


For many years NHC’s forecasts of tropical cyclone formation extended only 36-48 hours into the future. 

Recent advances in numerical modeling, however, as well as improved understanding of some of the physical triggers for genesis, prompted NHC to begin an in-house experiment to see whether its genesis forecasts could be extended. 

 The four-year experiment showed, somewhat surprisingly, that a five-day tropical cyclone forecast could be made with nearly the reliability of the existing 48-hour forecasts, and NHC publicly extended the range of its Tropical Weather Outlook (TWO) text product to five days on August 1st of 2013.

In its present form, the text TWO describes areas of disturbed weather and their potential for development into a tropical or subtropical cyclone. This description normally includes discussion of the large-scale factors that could influence development, the general motion of the disturbance …

This Mind-Blowing Infographic Shows The Incredible Depth Of The Earth's Oceans


JUL. 1, 2014, 3:53 PM

People sometimes forget that oceans contain a lot more than the water you see just beneath the surface.

The depths below the ocean's surface comprise a staggering 95% of the Earth's living space, and much of it is unexplored by humans.

To put into perspective just how deep the oceans go, created this illustration:

As you can see, most of the ocean doesn't even see sunlight. Even scientists aren't familiar with everything that's down there.

In fact, getting to the deepest reaches of the ocean is so expensive that some people — like Oscar-winning director James Cameron — take it upon themselves to explore underwater spaces rarely visited by humans.

Cameron visited the Mariana Trench, the deepest place on Earth at seven miles below the surface of the Pacific Ocean, in a minisubmarine in 2012. 

He was only the second person to visit that area of the ocean.

He didn't see any sea monsters, but he described the experience as…

Causes and symptoms of enzyme depletion

(NaturalNews) Enzymes are substances that make life possible. They are needed for every chemical reaction that takes place in the human body. Without enzymes, no activity at all would take place. 

Neither vitamins, minerals, nor hormones can do any work without enzymes.

 This is what makes enzyme depletion especially concerning, and why it needs to stop in the interest of human health.

How enzymes and digestion worksThe human body makes approximately 22 digestive enzymes, …


"Bien aventurado el que no cambia el sueño de su vida por el pan de cada día." Rodolfo Enrique (Facundo) Cabral (1937 - 2011), cantautor, poeta, escritor y filósofo Argentino.

La conferencia del abogado norteamericano en un lujoso hotel de Caracas tenía como tema central las condiciones legales que exige Estados Unidos para que extranjeros puedan trabajar legalmente y crear empresas allá.

 El evento estaba previsto para 400 participantes con un pago de Bs. 4.000 por persona.

 Se presentaron 1.200 participantes y a las 7 de la noche un agotado conferencista preguntó a su ultimo consultante: ¿por qué un profesional exitoso como tú se quiere ir?

 La respuesta lo impactó:

"No es por dinero, ni por seguridad, ni por la escasez ni por la inflación. Es porque ya no soporto vivir en este gran rancho que es Venezuela". 

 Esto lo puede apreciar no solo quien conozca mejores sitios en el extranjero, sino venezolanos que vivieron un país que estaba "en vías de desarrollo".…

Keywords: Dangerous Toxins, Dangerous Toxins to Avoid, pesticides

Most people at least try to eat healthy, so it is very discouraging when there is story after story in the newspapers about different toxins that wind up in common food products. Just because something comes from the store does not mean it is safe to eat. 

To truly follow a healthy regimen, however, there are some things to do to keep toxins off the plate and out of the body, including reading the food labels, knowing how the food is processed and keeping the kitchen free of the following unsavory chemicals.

1. Pesticides

These chemicals are widely-used in large-scale, conventional agricutlure. Their use can leave residues on the plants that have been treated and from there make their way into the grocery store. These toxins are linked to serious health issues, including various forms of cancer, reproductive problems and birth defects. The best way to avoid them i…
