Will Tropical Storm Bertha Fulfill Long-range Prediction?

Meteorologists are keeping their eye on Tropical Storm Bertha in the Atlantic Basin. The National Weather Service's 5 day track forecast places Bertha headed toward the United States by July 8th.

The Weather Alternative posted a long-range weather forecast for July 9-11 back in mid-June. The forecast read as follows:

July 9-11 The Sun's opposition to Jupiter and Mercury's opposition to Pluto at the time of the First Quarter Moon show the potential for a low pressure system or front to develop off the U.S. East Coast around the latitude of North Carolina and bring severe weather to the New England area.

Bertha may be the fulfillment of the low-pressure system forecast off the North Carolina coast.

How Long-Range Forecasts Are Made

Love is in the air in classrooms. (Thomas Bell, The Telegraph)

The Singapore government is offering students lessons in seduction to boost the city state’s flagging birthrate. Students at two polytechnics can earn two credits towards their final degree by choosing the love elective. Activities include watching romantic films, holding hands and "love song analysis."
