2019 Atlantic hurricane season now favors ‘above-normal’ activity, with 10-17 named storms, NOAA says

After a timid start to the Atlantic hurricane season, forecasters are advising that conditions have changed to allow for “above-normal” activity as the peak months of the season have arrived.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said in its mid-season outlook that an El Nino weather pattern in the Pacific Ocean has ended, leading to neutral conditions that are more favorable for tropical activity.

“El Nino typically suppresses Atlantic hurricane activity but now that it’s gone, we could see a busier season ahead,” said Gerry Bell, lead seasonal hurricane forecaster at NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center. “This evolution, combined with the more conducive conditions associated with the ongoing high-activity era for Atlantic hurricanes that began in 1995, increases the likelihood of above-normal activity this year.”

HERE ARE THE DEADLIEST AND COSTLIEST HURRICANES TO HIT THE US MAINLAND 

NOAA forecasters are now calling for 10-17 named storms with winds of 39 mph or higher, of which five to nine could strengthen into hurricanes. Of those storms, there will be two to four major hurricanes, which are classified as Category 3, 4, and 5 with winds of 111 mph or higher.

Forecasters this year have also increased the likelihood of an above-normal Atlantic hurricane season to 45 percent, up from a 30 percent chance from the pre-season outlook issued in May. The likelihood of near-normal activity is now at 35 percent and the chance of below-normal activity has dropped to 20 percent for this year’s hurricane season, which runs from June 1 to Nov. 30.

An average hurricane season produces 12 named storms, of which six become hurricanes, including three major hurricanes, according to NOAA. The peak months of the hurricane season, August through October, are now underway.

Forecasters also stressed the NOAA outlook is for overall seasonal activity and not a landfall forecast. Landfalls are largely determined by short-term weather patterns, which are only predictable within about a week of a storm potentially reaching a coastline, according to the NOAA.

Those living in impact zones along the coast and inland are warned to be prepared for whatever may come this hurricane season.

“Today’s updated outlook is a reminder to be prepared,” Acting FEMA administrator Pete Gaynor said in a statement. “We urge everyone to learn more about hurricane hazards and prepare now, ahead of time, so that if state and local authorities announce evacuations in advance of a storm, you and your family will have planned where to go and what to do to stay safe.”

HOW HURRICANE NAMES ARE ‘RETIRED’ FROM USE FOR FUTURE STORMS

So far, two named storms have formed this year.

Nick Kyrgios blows up at umpire for failing to immediately meet towel request

Westlake Legal Group TEN-Nick-Kyrgios4 Nick Kyrgios blows up at umpire for failing to immediately meet towel request Ryan Gaydos fox-news/sports/tennis fox news fnc/sports fnc c1422b2c-47d6-5b6a-b98e-f19fdd160e26 article

Nick Kyrgios was riding a wave of momentum heading into the Rogers Cup in Canada after having just won the Citi Open in Washington over the weekend.

Any momentum Kyrgios may have had going into the Rogers Cup was stopped in its tracks Wednesday after the Australian tennis star melted down over a towel.

FLASHBACK: NICK KYRGIOS RAGES AT UMPIRE, ACCUSES OFFICIAL OF ‘RIGGING’ MATCH

Kyrgios received a code violation during his loss to Kyle Edmund for cursing at the umpire when he realized a request he made prior to the start of the match went unfulfilled.

According to Reuters, Kyrgios asked the umpire if he could have a white towel instead of the towel that features the tournament’s logo on it. The 24-year-old was five games into the match when he realized that he did not get the towel he had asked for.

“You’re telling me that you can’t radio in just for one white towel?” Kyrgios asked after the umpire told him he wasn’t allowed to leave the chair.

Kyrgios was then handed a white towel, but it didn’t help cool him off.

Edmund won the match 6-3, 6-4.

Kyrgios is infamous for his on-court tirades.

In June, he accused an umpire at Queen’s Club in London of “rigging” his match. In May, he threw a water bottle and a chair during the Italian Open.

He was also given multiple code violations for obscenities and racket-smashing during the 2014 U.S. Open. He’s received multiple fines at Wimbledon and the Australian Open for cursing.

He also received an eight-week ban for allegedly not giving his best effort during a 2016 match at the Shanghai Masters. He has been on the receiving end of harsh criticism from tennis great John McEnroe, who said in 2016 he should retire.

Dr. Alveda King pushes back on Beto, others on left: ‘President Trump is not a racist’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_5991909726001_5991914059001-vs Dr. Alveda King pushes back on Beto, others on left: 'President Trump is not a racist' fox-news/shows/fox-friends fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/person/beto-orourke fox-news/media/fox-news-flash Fox News Staff fox news fnc/media fnc article 593303aa-de61-5d74-b971-52e1286f23ac

Fox News contributor and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Dr. Alveda King pushed back against those who are labeling President Trump as a racist and a white supremacist, arguing there is a danger in misusing the terms.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends” Thursday, King responded to many of the 2020 Democratic candidates who have been quick to call the president a “racist” and accuse him of inciting violence with his rhetoric.

“President Trump is not a racist,” King said. “I’ve had the experience of going head to head with genuine racists.”

TRUMP TRASHES BETO O’ROURKE, TELLS HIM TO ‘BE QUIET’ AHEAD OF EL PASO VISIT

King said she would like to challenge the president’s accusers on whether they have “ever met a real racist.”

“President Trump has said ‘we all bleed the same,’ he’s very clear on that and he has done so much for all Americans including African-Americans,” she explained.

Many 2020 Democratic candidates have upped their rhetoric on the president following the horrific mass shootings that took 31 lives this past weekend.

In an interview with MSNBC, Beto O’Rourke called Trump a white supremacist on Wednesday as both men were in El Paso to honor the victims and visit those injured in the attack.

After noting he had previously called Trump a racist, the host asked O’Rourke if he believed the president was a white supremacist.

“He is. He has made that very clear,” O’Rourke answered. “He dehumanized those who do not look and pray like the majority of people here. He said I wish we had more immigrants from Nordic countries because those from Haiti bring AIDS, those from Africa are s—hole nations.”

King called on people on both sides to come together to “look for solutions.”

“What President Trump and First Lady Melania did was to go down and look for solutions. We have to overcome evil with good. When people call each other racist, we are one blood. One human race, different ethnicities –we’re not color blind, we can see, but that is for the purpose of appreciating each other and we have to do that,” said King.

Responding to Oprah Winfrey’s remark that the country must “return to our core moral center,” King said she found the left’s calls for morals hypocritical.

“A lot of those calling Trump a racist and white supremacist, most of them support killing in a very brutal way called abortion. The youngest, the weakest the most beautiful of us killing them in the womb. How immoral is that,” she concluded.

Frontier Airlines giving away free flights to travelers with very specific last names

Bad news for anyone burdened with a surname that isn’t “Green” or Greene.”

As part of its “Green Week” celebrations, Frontier Airlines has announced that anyone with the surname Green, or Greene, is eligible for a free domestic flight with the carrier.

MAN REPORTEDLY DENIED PASSPORT BECAUSE OF ‘VULGAR’ LAST NAME

However, the offer comes with several caveats — the biggest being that eligible participants must depart for their one-way or round-trip flights on Aug. 13, 2019, and, if booking a round-trip flight, they must return by Aug. 20 at 11:59 p.m.

Greens, or Greenes, must also provide official documentation of their surnames, of course, and the offer does not extend to any family members who don’t share the name.

Passengers deemed eligible will later be refunded – up to $400 – by Sept. 15, according to Frontier.

The promotion comes amid Frontier’s “Green Week” campaign, to highlight their efforts to become the most eco-friendly carrier in the U.S.

To that end, Frontier also launched its “greenest flight” on Wednesday, from Denver to Greenville, S.C., on the Airbus A230neo, which the airline describes as “one of the most fuel-efficient” in the world. Passengers on the flight were served refreshments in eco-friendly packaging alongside compostable cups and napkins, and Frontier said it planted “enough trees” to offset the flight’s carbon footprint.

Ooops! SoftBank president accidentally leaks iPhone 11 release date

If Apple is true to form, the iPhone 11 will be released in September. And if the president of SoftBank is to be believed, you’ll be able to buy one on Sept. 20.

As 9To5Mac reports, during an investor event this week in Japan, SoftBank president Ken Miyauchi was asked when he expected the iPhone 11 to launch. To everyone’s surprise, he managed to give away the release date in a roundabout way.

On Oct. 1, a new Telecommunications Business Law goes into effect in Japan. It sees the end of carrier bundling when selling smartphones to consumers and means data and device plans must be sold separately. The reason the new law is important is because Miyauchi was asked how SoftBank would handle an expected September release for the iPhone 11 considering the new law being active the following month.

In response, Miyauchi said, “Honestly, I am wondering what should I do for 10 days,” which suggests the iPhone 11 will arrive 10 days before the new law and therefore launches on Friday, Sept. 20. That fits with what Apple did last year when the iPhone XS launched on Friday, Sept. 21.

More From PCmag

If Sept. 20 is the release date, then we should expect an iPhone event on Sept. 10 and then pre-orders to open on Sept. 13. Apple will obviously be hoping for swift sales of its new phones, but the new square camera bump on the back won’t be to everyone’s taste and we could see more consumers than usual taking a wait-and-see approach to the iPhone 11.

McConnell willing to consider ‘bipartisan’ gun violence solutions, opposes ‘infringing’ on rights

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6060441828001_6060443737001-vs McConnell willing to consider ‘bipartisan’ gun violence solutions, opposes 'infringing' on rights fox-news/politics/senate fox-news/person/mitch-mcconnell fox-news/person/donald-trump fox news fnc/politics fnc article Alex Pappas 03eba6c8-7a99-599a-a501-9888c41dd9b5

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell – a Republican who has been lambasted by Democrats for refusing to allow votes on gun control legislation – said Monday he is willing to consider “bipartisan” solutions in the wake of the mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, but made clear his opposition to gun control policies that infringe “on Americans’ constitutional rights.”

“Today, the president called on Congress to work in a bipartisan, bicameral way to address the recent mass murders which have shaken our nation,” McConnell said in a statement. “Senate Republicans are prepared to do our part.”

2020 DEMS UNLEASH PROFANE ATTACKS ON TRUMP, REPUBLICANS OVER MASS SHOOTINGS

He did not specifically detail the type of legislation he would support. But McConnell’s comments come amid a bipartisan effort from GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut for a bill that would create a federal grant program to assist states in adopting so-called “Red Flag” laws.

In his statement, McConnell said he has spoken with Senate committee leaders and “asked them to reflect on the subjects the president raised within their jurisdictions and encouraged them to engage in bipartisan discussions of potential solutions to help protect our communities without infringing on Americans’ constitutional rights.”

“Only serious, bipartisan, bicameral efforts will enable us to continue this important work and produce further legislation that can pass the Senate, pass the House, and earn the president’s signature,” McConnell said. “Partisan theatrics and campaign-trail rhetoric will only take us farther away from the progress all Americans deserve.”

The back-to-back mass shootings this weekend have left at least 31 dead and more injured.

The Graham-Blumenthal bill would “assist and encourage” states to adopt Red Flag laws to “timely intervene in situations where there is an imminent threat of violence.”

“These grants will be given to law enforcement so they can hire and consult with mental health professionals to better determine which cases need to be acted upon,” Graham said Monday. “This grant program also requires robust due process and judicial review. It does allow for quick action.”

Blumenthal in a statement Monday said that he and Graham have been working on developing an “Emergency Risk Protection Order” statute since the last Congress.

“We will be finalizing details for this bill and reaching out to colleagues on both sides of the aisle in the coming days and weeks,” Blumenthal said. “I look forward to introducing final legislation with Senator Graham in the very near future.”

GRAHAM, BLUMENTHAL ANNOUNCE BIPARTISAN BILL ON ‘RED FLAG’ LAWS IN WAKE OF EL PASO, DAYTON SHOOTINGS

Graham said that he spoke with President Trump about the legislation on Monday morning and said “he seems very supportive.”

Graham and Blumenthal’s announcement came after Trump called for reforms Monday from the White House on mental health and gun laws.

Some Democrats have directed their ire at McConnell – who has refused votes on Democrat-supported gun control language that has passed in the House.

“Mitch McConnell needs to get off his a– and do something,” Democratic Rep. Tim Ryan of Ohio, a longshot candidate for president, said in an interview on CNN.

Democratic leaders in Congress on Monday called on McConnell to allow a vote in the GOP-controlled Senate on Democratic legislation, and some have additionally called for cutting the summer recess short to address gun violence.

“In February, the new Democratic House majority promptly did its duty and passed the Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019, which is supported by more than 90 percent of the American people and proven to save lives,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said in a joint statement after Trump’s speech. “However, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell has called himself the ‘grim reaper’ and refuses to act on this bipartisan legislation.”

They added: “It is incumbent upon the Senate to come back into session to pass this legislation immediately.”

Gutfeld on this weekend’s deadly shootings

The urge after a public mass shooting is to do something. But whatever the something is, it’ll be the wrong thing for somebody.

You could surveil social media, create a database, get court orders based on testimonies, take the guns, address mental health.

EL PASO SHOOTING FATALITIES NOW AT 22 AFTER VICTIM DIES AT HOSPITAL MONDAY MORNING, POLICE SAY

That’ll upset libertarians.

You could harden soft targets, reduce gun-free zones, have more good guys with guns. That’ll upset the liberals.

You could enact more gun control. That’ll tick off conservatives.

Try all that, and everyone will have a bone to pick.

So maybe that’s fair.

Except you may never know if it works because the number of public mass shootings varies depending on whom you ask. But, still, whether its 73 over 20 years, or 170 since 1967, one is too many. But you may never know if preventive actions work.

But rather than fuel a blame game, let’s focus on the problem.

These public mass shootings are linked. One shooter often references another. All of it feeds the need for infamy, which is empowered by the media as they push the blame on people they hate.

Society’s goal? Always to reduce violence.

And we’re good at it.

We have laws to prevent chaos.

Debate that solves problems without weapons.

We have elections to prevent revolutions.

That does all the heavy lifting.

But it’s always the tiniest fraction that slips through.

Demented outsiders are small in number, but in a free society, where large vulnerable groups congregate, they’ll always have an outsized impact. It’s just like terror, because it is terror.

No wonder the media angers us through their amplification.

Demented outsiders are small in number, but in a free society, where large vulnerable groups congregate, they’ll always have an outsized impact. It’s just like terror, because it is terror.

So if we decide to target the needles in the haystack with all those suggestions we just mentioned, you may lose some freedoms.

We could make everything like the airport post-9/11.

Would it work?

Maybe.

NY Post opinion editor defends ‘ban weapons of war’ cover: ‘Reasonable’ regulation can prevent future tragedy

Westlake Legal Group Post-Ahmari NY Post opinion editor defends 'ban weapons of war' cover: 'Reasonable' regulation can prevent future tragedy fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/new-york fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/media fnc Charles Creitz article 40c8d1f3-b445-56f7-a718-084bbb6e43d0

An editor with the New York Post defended his newspaper’s decision to place a gun control-related op-ed so prominently on its iconic cover Monday morning.

Sohrab Ahmari said Monday on “The Daily Briefing” he didn’t write the op-ed, “Ban Weapons of War,” but claimed it is an important message for readers in New York City and beyond, in the wake of two mass shootings over the weekend — in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio.

“I didn’t write the editorial, but the editors thought that this issue — we’re like anyone else, we’re people — we have kids, we have family members,” he said.

“And just the thought of them walking into a Walmart for back to school supplies and not coming out because some monster was enraged for what reason, and was able to use these sort of high caliber, rapid-fire, semi-automatic, semi-military-style weapons is disturbing.”

NEW YORK POST FRONT PAGE EDITORIAL URGES PRESIDENT TRUMP TO BAN ‘WEAPONS OF WAR’

In the op-ed, the editorial board writes the Founding Fathers presented citizens with the right to bear arms, “during a time of muskets.”

“They did not foresee a time when one 21-year-old could kill 20 people in the span of minutes thanks to poisonous beliefs and an assault weapon,” the piece read.

In his interview, Ahmari said he is heartened by President Trump’s contemplation of potential legislative or executive responses to the tragedies.

“It’s very encouraging to note the president, both in his tweets this morning and in his statement a little bit later, suggested an openness to doing some pragmatic things that are short of anything like grabbing guns — but background checks, reg flag alerts and so forth,” he said.

“Culture can change and people can change with the law.”

2020 DEMS UNLEASH PROFANE ATTACKS ON TRUMP, REPUBLICANS OVER MASS SHOOTINGS

Ahmari also noted the op-ed explained how “assault weapon” is a “cosmetic” term, adding any government action should take into consideration a more nuanced set of factors like magazine size and rapidity of fire.

“Some combination of those that make it possible for someone to kill so many people in such a short amount of time can be reasonably regulated — without getting at handguns or weapons that are used for hunting,” he said.

He also responded to critics on social media who claimed the Post published the op-ed because he is a “liberal” and an “urbanite.”

“As you know, Dana, I’m deeply, deeply conservative, some would say ‘reactionary’,” he told host Dana Perino.

In the op-ed, the editorial board wrote Trump is in a “position to assuage” fears of Americans in the wake of the shootings.

“On gun control, you are a pragmatic centrist, someone who knows there is a vast majority of Americans who are not to the extreme left or right on this issue. They just want the killings to stop,” the piece stated.

“Yes, we know the president regularly praises the Second Amendment and received the National Rifle Association’s support in the 2016 race.”

CNN’s Jake Tapper fires back at ‘Squad’ member Rashida Tlaib: ‘I never said that’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6033508755001_6025576909001-vs CNN's Jake Tapper fires back at ‘Squad’ member Rashida Tlaib: ‘I never said that’ fox-news/politics fox news fnc/media fnc Brian Flood article 5add277f-83c9-5d40-bba3-58562f7f03d1

CNN’s Jake Tapper fired back Monday at “Squad” member Rep. Rashida Tlaib after she ripped him over comments he made Sunday on “State of the Union.”

Tapper was discussing the tone of leaders amid the tragic mass shooting in El Paso, Texas when he said something that apparently bothered Tlaib.

“You hear conservatives all the time, rightly so in my opinion, talk about the tone set by people in the Arab world. Palestinian leaders and the way they talk about Israelis… justifying,” Tapper said. “You can’t compare the ideology of Hamas with anything else. But at the same time, either tone matters or it doesn’t.”

Tlaib noticed a tweet from someone who objected to Tapper’s message and took things a step further.

“Comparing Palestinian human rights advocates to terrorist white nationalists is fundamentally a lie. Palestinians want equality, human dignity & to stop the imprisonment of children,” Tlaib wrote. “White supremacy is calling for the *domination* of one race w/ the use of violence.”

Tapper fired back on Monday with a tweet directed at the freshman congresswoman.

“You’re 100% right, Congresswoman @RashidaTlaib, it’s a lie. Because I never said that. What I said was those who believe Palestinian leaders bear responsibility for the incitement of terrorism cannot then let US leaders off the hook and act as if words don’t matter,” the CNN host wrote.

President Trump has attacked the so-called “Squad” made up of Tlaib, Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass.

Trey Gowdy gets emotional responding to mass shootings: ‘Right to bear arms doesn’t matter if you’re dead’

Fox News contributor and former Rep. Trey Gowdy said Sunday that “the right-to-life is the most fundamental, basic, primary right that we have. It is the right from which all other rights emanate.”

Appearing on “Sunday Morning Futures,” an emotional Gowdy said, “It doesn’t matter if you have a right to a lawyer if you are dead. It doesn’t matter if you have the right to free speech if you are dead. Doesn’t matter if you have the right to keep and bear arms if you are dead.”

Commenting on the horrific mass shootings this past weekend — with a death toll that now totals 31, Gowdy said the problem boils down to an enforcement issue.

In a passionate plea on “Sunday Morning Futures,” Sunday Gowdy, who served as a representative for South Carolina until earlier this year, asked legislators to asses whether the current laws in place are properly being enforced before resorting to the drafting of new legislation.

“More laws that are not going to be enforced is a panacea and it won’t work,” he said.

“Show me a law that will prevent the next Sandy Hook and sign me up as a husband and father,” Gowdy said, “…and I’ll give up any other right I have.”

Gowdy’s remarks came before President Trump’s comments on Monday morning, in which he condemned the mass shootings in Texas and Ohio as barbaric crimes “against all humanity” and called for bipartisan cooperation to respond to an epidemic of gun violence. He blamed mental illness and video games but made no mention of more limits on sales of firearms aside from so-called “red flag laws.”

Trump tweeted that he wanted legislation providing “strong background checks” for gun users, though he has not followed through with comprehensive legislation following prior attacks.

“We vow to act with urgent resolve,” Trump said, speaking from the White House about shootings that left 31 dead. His scripted remarks came after two days of muted response to the shootings.

“In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy,” Trump said, adding that he had directed the FBI to examine steps to identify and address domestic terrorism. “These sinister ideologies must be defeated. Hate has no place in America,” he said.
