    Confusing WEather Map? Sorry i don’t have picture, but it’s confusing…. LIke it shows high air pressure (clear or sunny days), but it’s yellow color (moderate rain)….. Help pls!?

    • Curator says:

      Could be your image is a combination surface and satellite map (where the yellow area indicates cloud-top temperatures) or surface and radar map (where the yellow area indicates moderate intensity rainfall).

      If it’s a radar composite, then the yellow area should be surrounded by green indicating lighter intensity rainfall.

      Since there’s HIGH pressure on the map, chances are the yellow area marks the location of high clouds.

    Do You Think Mutants Would Be Good Or Evil? If people with powers like being able to blind people temporarily, read animals’ minds, have inbuilt advisors, walk through walls and control the weather turned out to be real, what would you think of them? Would you love them or hate them? Would you be anti-mutant or not?

    • Curator says:

      I’d think they’d be both, just like the people around them. That way you get conflict for a narrative and/or a fair shot at redemption otherwise. 😉

      I will say this much. The _Good_ fiction I’ve read about mutants, as such, and my experience with the common way the word “mutant” is normally applied to people in real life? I’d go in assuming that some people would in fact be wingnuts about it, they would be racist and anti-mutant. They’d say that “they’re all psychopaths” or “they’re all too unstable to be out loose”.

      And they’d have a point if they weren’t picking on _teenagers_ who might be dealing with _otherworldly_ powers. Really, you’re expecting teenagers dealing with near-Lovecraftian personal horrors already, and _then_ their bodies have PMS on crack as they become mutants too? Right. You’re expecting them to be mature, composed and well-behaved if not downright prim?

      I personally would be pro-mutant. On the open, public side of affairs, I’d insist that this is a human rights issue, pure and simple, and that if they’re born of human parents, they deserve the same human rights and basic decency we do, until they blow it and lose it.

      More privately? If we go in assuming an original, real-life setting and nothing previously copyrighted, then who knows _who_ might be slipping things under the radar….

    Need A Song For Senior Dance Recital!? I’m a choreographer and I need a song for a senior recital.
    Something similar to “A Little Party Never Killed Nobody” (with that jazz/Gatsby feel, but modern. Something I could do a kick line to at the end) or something similar to “You Make My Dreams” by Hall & Oats. I’m looking for a song that people will know and that has that has that special fun quality. Something relatively fast that has a good beat. Doesn’t have to relate to being a senior (in college) but I want this dance to be huge, badass, and unforgettable.
    I recently choreographed to “All That Jazz” from Chicago and it was a hit because I put in a kickline at the end. Yeah…I need something THAT big and memorable.

    These are some of my options but none of them feels like “the one:”

    Ain’t no other man by Christina Agulaira
    High school musical from High School Musical 3 (thought it could be cute)
    I’m a believer
    Brave by Sara Barellis
    Buenos Aires from Evita
    crazy little thing called love by Michael Buble
    let’s be bad from SMASH (NBC)
    mambo number 5
    best I ever had by Gavin Degraw
    paradise by the dashboard light by Meatloaf

    The 2 songs that are at my top (because they’re closest to my 2 examples above) are Ain’t No Other Man or High School Musical.

    HELP!
    Something upbeat that is somewhat fast. Preferably with a modern 1920’s or 1950’s/60’s feel

      ‘Vol. cov. pattern’ is short for volume coverage pattern (VCP).
      It’s a number assigned to the different patterns used by the radar to scan the atmosphere in the vicinity of the radome.

      A Volume Coverage Pattern (VCP) is a series of 360 degree sweeps of the antenna at selected elevation angles completed in a specified period of time.

      VCP32 is ‘clear air mode.’
      It’s used when no precipitation is in the area or when light snowfall or during periods of light snowfall. The radar makes one complete volume scan of 5 angles in 10″.

      VCP11 is ‘severe storm mode.’ The volume is scanned in about 5″ at 14 elevation angles.

    Whats Some Good Storm Tracking/radar Software? I am looking for some good free storm tracking/radar software. I am a skywarn spotter and currently using Grlevel3. I would like to find something with a lot of the same attributes as that but I know that it probably not a possibility. So I would like some thing similar to it. The main things that I am looking for would be real time tracking, range rings, and the various radar products such as BR, BV, SRV, and hourly rainfall. So forth and so on

    Any help is more then welcome
