Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Light precipitation spreads into and across the state today; we will see that precipitation mostly fall as light snow, but gradually warming temps this afternoon will allow light, cold rain to mix in at times. The snow will create minor accumulations on grassy surfaces or cars of a fresh coating to 2 inches, but still should not be an issue on roads. Liquid equivalent precipitation will be from a .1″ to .6” with coverage at 100% of the state. Temps will promote mostly rain over the southern third to quarter of the state. The best snow potential runs from west central OH into NE OH.Dry and significantly colder air blasts in behind the front for the start of the weekend. Temps will be well below normal. Saturday will see highs struggle to get out of the mid 30s over a large part of Ohio, and we will see strong NW winds making it feel colder than even the mid-30s. Sunday we should be a little better, but still may see most of the state staying below the lower to mid-40s for daytime highs. At least we think sunshine will be an increasing commodity through the weekend. Dry weather holds through Monday morning.Clouds start to build Monday midday and afternoon, and our next round of precipitation rolls in late Monday evening through the overnight. This system looks very similar to what we are experiencing this morning. Snows move across the state from midnight on forward through Tuesday early afternoon. Moisture totals look similar too, with a few hundredths to .6” of liquid equivalent around, coming mostly as snow. This would trigger snow accumulations again of a coating to 2″ on cars and grassy surfaces. We likely have precipitation stay rain down near the Ohio river, and that may be where we see the chances for the biggest rain totals too. The map shows a snapshot of potential action Tuesday morning.Behind that event, most of the rest of next week is dry. Clouds will be slow to break Tuesday night, but we should see better sunshine in for Wednesday through the weekend, including Sunday. For the extended period, we still see a rather active pattern setting up, but we are delaying it just a little bit. We are pushing rain s back into a period from the 21st through the 23rd. WE are also opening up the door for higher moisture totals out of the event. Warmer temps mean all rain at this juncture, and also may fuel some thunderstorm potential in southern parts of the state into Kentucky. Rain from the 3-day period can total half to 2” with coverage at 80%. We go drier again behind that system for the 24th forward, but temps stay normal to above normal…we do not see a strong cool down at this time.
A 500-m, Rs 8-crore artificial reef installed six months ago off Kovalam beach is making waves. It is meant to help protect the eroded beach, enhance fish stocks and boost tourism, but some of its geo-textile bags have been washing ashore, prompting fish workers and environmentalists to demand an inquiry.,A 500-m, Rs 8-crore artificial reef installed six months ago off Kovalam beach is making waves. It is meant to help protect the eroded beach, enhance fish stocks and boost tourism, but some of its geo-textile bags have been washing ashore, prompting fish workers and environmentalists to demand an inquiry. Kerala Tourism, however, is undaunted. It has launched the global campaign for the coming season in style. A Rs 1.5-crore promotional film, Your Moment is Waiting, made by Prakash Varma (of the Vodafone Zoozoo ads fame) will be screened at Saatchi Gallery, London and will be later shown along with the Julia Roberts starrer Eat Pray Love, which was shot in Kerala, at theatres all over the UK; it also features international model Miriam Ilora. In March this year, Kerala Tourism’s innovative campaign in the UK using cabs plying in Glasgow, Manchester and Birmingham sporting exotic images from God’s Own Country like elephants and snake boats was noticed widely. “The UK being our biggest overseas market, it makes sense to launch our global campaign here,” says V. Venu, secretary, Kerala Tourism.

Image Courtesy: Pexels under CC0 Creative Commons license Demand for classic Panamax containerships, which picked up in the recent weeks, has driven a major drop in the number of idle units in the size range from 4,000 to 5,100 TEU, according to Alphaliner.Over the past month, the count reduced from 50 to just 22 ships, of which only twelve are still believed ‘spot’ for charter.The sharp fall is mainly driven by increased demand from the intra – Far East routes, which have become the biggest single trade for Panamax ships. The number of ships of over 4,000 TEU, deployed in the Far East regional trades, has increased steadily since 2010, from 30 to 195 units currently, 153 of which are classic Panamaxes.Chinese domestic routes alone employ 63 of these ships, primarily on high-volume trades that connect Northern and Southern China.Alphaliner noted that most of the new demand is fuelled by the vessel size increase on North Asia – South East Asia services, as well as by an increasing number of high-volume feeder routes in South East Asia.“The relatively low charter rates for classic Panamaxes have enticed operators to upgrade some services from the 1,500 – 3,500 TEU size to the 4,000 – 5,100 TEU scale, with Panamax vessels chartered at rates similar to those paid for smaller ships.”
Dan Cohen AUTHOR The Obama administration’s failure to complete a detailed plan for closing the military prison at Guantánamo Bay has cost it a prime opportunity for gaining Congress’ assent to transfer detainees to a U.S. facility, John McCain (R-Ariz.), chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said this week.McCain, who supports closing Guantánamo, intended to include language in the fiscal 2016 defense authorization bill permitting the detention facility’s closure if the White House submitted a proposal that passed congressional muster. But despite its promise months ago, the administration failed to deliver a closure plan before conferees finished putting together the conference report for the annual defense policy bill, which was unveiled on Tuesday.If conferees had been able to see the plan and agreed with it “we would’ve put into the bill,” McCain said. “If the administration complains about the provisions on Guantánamo, it’s their fault because they never came forward with a plan, that we probably could’ve supported, to get rid of this issue,” he said, reported Defense One.“We acted as we had to, without any plan or blueprint from the administration,” McCain added.Instead, the bill returns to a stricter standard that would freeze the remaining population at Guantánamo for at least the next year. The legislation would prohibit the transfer of detainees to the United States, or the construction or modification of facilities in the United States for housing the detainees.In place of McCain’s initial plan for providing a pathway to closure, the final version of the authorization bill would require DOD to submit a plan within 90 days on the current and future detention of individuals, including a “specific facility or facilities that are intended to be used” for holding detainees, reported CQ.“The conferees expect that discussion to include an explanation of the department’s plan for the disposition of all detainees held at Guantanamo, on a case-by-case basis, and the costs associated with each element of that plan,” according to the conference report.A senior administration official said the White House strongly opposes language in the defense authorization bill that would “impede efforts to close” the Guantanamo detention center and said its closure plan will be ready soon.
Erica Argueta/CNET Welcome to Fun with Numbers. The new Galaxy S10 sells unlocked for $900. The Galaxy S10E runs $750. And if you want the big kahuna, the S10 Plus, be prepared to shell out $1,000.Here’s where it gets fun: For a limited time, and while supplies last, Never-msrp (via eBay) has the unlocked Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus (128GB) in black for $839.99. That’s the lowest price to date and a surprisingly big discount given how new this model is.See it at eBaySo for less than the price of the S10, you can get the Plus. For not much more than the price of the S10E, you can get the Plus. The only real question is whether you want a phone that big — it has a 6.4-inch screen. Once upon a time, we would have called that a phablet.Judging from Jessica Dolcourt’s Galaxy S10 Plus review, this is a phone worth owning. It has “three cameras, a killer screen and terrific battery life.” And that whole “use the S10 to wirelessly charge other devices” thing? That’s freakin’ awesome.Now for the catch: This model works only with GSM carriers, meaning AT&T, T-Mobile and their various partner carriers (Cricket, Mint Mobile and so on). It won’t work with Sprint, Verizon or any of their partners: Boost Mobile, Tello and others.Your thoughts?

Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio. Google Express is having a big sale as well, one that includes deals on game consoles, AirPods, iPhones, laptops and more.Below I’ve rounded up a handful of individual items I consider to be the cream of the crop, followed by a handy reference guide to other Labor Day sales. Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page.

Just add any Fire TV Edition to your cart, then add a third-gen Echo Dot, and presto: The latter is free.

Drew Angerer/Getty Images Now you can know just how miserable your commute will (or won’t) be before you even get to the train station. Google Maps on Thursday rolled out a feature that predicts how crowded a train, subway or bus will be based on previous rides. Riders can see this information and then decide if they want to stick it out or wait for things to clear up. The company also launched live updates on traffic delays for buses in locations where it doesn’t already have real-time information from local transit agencies. Riders can now see if their bus will be late and how long they’ll have to wait. They’ll also get more-precise travel times based on live traffic conditions, and will be able to see where the delays are on the map. The two features roll out Thursday in around 200 cities worldwide, and are available on both Android and iOS. Sarah Tew/CNET I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution.
