Sometimes, with good news, there is bad. This weekend I was in an serious surfing accident and spent the afternoon in the hospital. I received 15 stitches in my face and it hurt like all hell. If not for my friends Max and Jinny Cobb, I would have been alone and helpless during that process. Thank God I am ok, my face will heal without too much scaring over time. When we face mortality our souls are tested, and I will persevere through the hardship and pain with steadfast love for life.
Good luck to all those programmers that won’t sleep until Digg v4 is running more smoothly. For now I find a mild bemusement when these funny little screw up messages pop up. I like the new DIgg platform. It its intuitive and sexy, just clear out all the bugs and it will be perfect.
I would have left this one alone and not bothered, but 26 is my lucky number. Frankly, there is some serious significance to the number 22.6 in my life. So be it, and if you must know, the roots of the sacred number 26 go back to The Kabalah.
Around the globe, we are on track to see the hottest year yet in 2010. >From the flooding in Pakistan to droughts in Russia and landslides in China, the effects of this year’s extreme weather are catastrophic and undeniable.
The recent pattern of extreme weather events is consistent with what scientists have projected to result from climate change: temperature shifts, severe rainfall and snow in some parts of the world, and major droughts in others.
Despite the overwhelming facts, skeptics — like the now infamous Koch brothers1, Massey coal2 and Lord Monckton3 — will no doubt continue to spend big bucks to keep spreading misinformation about global warming.
But if we want to fight the skeptics, we’ll need a growing number of people to get informed. As the evidence mounts, leaders like Russian President Dmitry Medvedev are finally speaking out about climate change. President Medvedev spoke out at a United Nations Security Council meeting and said,
“What is happening now in our central regions is evidence of this global climate change, because we have never in our history faced such weather conditions in the past. This means that we need to change the way we work, change the methods that we used in the past.”4
In Pakistan, nearly 1,600 people have died this summer from the worst monsoon-related floods in living memory. And around the world, 2000-2009 was the warmest decade on record5, and 2010 is on track to be the warmest year the world has seen in 131 years.
Extreme weather events are putting lives in danger all around the world. Make sure you get the facts and spread the word.
