3 more typhoons expected to come: Hong Kong Observatory

HONG KONG, Sept. 6 (Xinhua) -- The Hong Kong Observatory recently adjusted their forecast about the number of tropical cyclones entering 500 km of Hong Kong this year to six to nine, which means there may be three more to come.

"We expected, for the rest of this year, the number of tropical cyclones entering the 500-kilomoeter range of Hong Kong are likely to be normal," Tong Hang Wai, Scientific Officer of the Hong Kong Observatory, told Xinhua on Wednesday.

He said, however, taking the actual observations in January to August into account, the number of typhoon is already higher than normal, and so there is a need to adjust.

In March, the observatory expected four to seven tropical cyclones coming within 500 km of Hong Kong, which is near normal. The forecast is, however, now adjusted to six to nine.

This year, six tropical cyclones entered the 500-km range of Hong Kong thus far, namely Merbok, Roke, Haitang, Hato, Pakhar and Mawar. Four of them necessitated the issuance of tropical cyclone warning signals of No. 8 or higher.

A hurricane signal No. 10, the highest level, was issued on Aug. 23, 2017, when typhoon Hato coincided with high tide battered Hong Kong, causing servere flooding in low-lying areas, hundreds of trees collapsed and transportation came to a halt.

In less than a week after Hato left, another typhoon, Pakhar hit Hong Kong and signal No. 8 was hoisted.

Hong Kong's typhoon season usually falls in summer. But Tang said it is not uncommon in Hong Kong to have typhoons in autumn and winter. Records showed that typhoon signals No. 8 were hoisted in November in 1954 and 1972.
Since the long-term averages of the number of tropical cyclones entering 500 km of and affecting Hong Kong are roughly the same, the forecast of the former is, to some extent, indicative of the latter, according to the Observatory.

The forecast about Hong Kong's annual rainfall was also adjusted, from 2,000 to 2,600 millimeters to 2,300 to 2,900 millimeters. Up to Aug. 31, 2017, the rainfall recorded at the observatory this year is 2,249 millimeters, about 18 percent above the normal value for the same period.

The observatory's latest climate model predictions indicated that rainfall in Hong Kong is likely to be normal to below normal for the rest of this year.

Australian politician reveals husband's child porn conviction

6 hours ago Australia
Rachel Carling-Jenkins reported her husband to police

An Australian politician has delivered a harrowing speech revealing that her estranged husband was jailed for possessing child pornography.

Rachel Carling-Jenkins, a member of Victoria's state parliament, said she discovered the extensive collection in their family home last year.

Her husband was convicted after Dr Carling-Jenkins and her son went to police.

She said the discovery had turned her life upside down.

"In this discovery, I personally viewed deeply distressing images which have caused me immediate and ongoing anguish," she said.

"My marriage ended instantly and I left home the day I made that discovery and I have not returned to the family home since, except to pick up belongings."

The conservative politician told a sitting of the Victorian upper house on Thursday that she had kept silent on the matter to prevent interfering with police and court proceedings.

She had never had suspicions that her husband was addicted to child pornography.

"I have no regrets as a mother or a wife in reporting and exposing this dreadful crime which occurred within the privacy of my home," she said.

'Poor, helpless victims'

Dr Carling-Jenkins said her husband had since refused to sign divorce papers and also denied her a property settlement and access to assets.

She said she had been financially and mentally abused by her husband, who had been sentenced to prison.
She also spoke of the anguish she felt for the young victims.

"The faces of many are etched into my memory for eternity and I pray that the police were able to identify and rescue as many of the poor, helpless, vulnerable victims as possible," she said.

"These little girls would not be abused if people like my ex-husband did not provide a market."

Fellow MPs hugged Dr Carling-Jenkins in the chamber after her speech.

For the crime of:
1) Conspiracy.
2) Framing as a Sexual Abuser.
3) Impersonating Delta Goodrem.
4) Gross Negligence in Delta's Security.
5) Contributing to Extortion against Delta and Myself.
6) Criminal Dishonesty and Complicity with Siege.
7) Culture Crimes and Risking Australian Social Peace to attack Me.
8) Gross Negligence hidden from the Common Wealth Obligations.
9) The use of Delta Goodrem to purposely Torture Me.
10) The Legal Action amount stacks on continuity as time passes.
I DEMAND My right to contact Delta Goodrem.

Can war games help us avoid real-world conflict?

By Jonathan Beale
Defence correspondent
7 September 2017 World

North Korea has just fired off an intercontinental ballistic missile over Japan. Japan is uncertain as to whether the US wants to start a war.

It's trying to find out why a massive American naval fleet has just arrived in the region. But it's not getting any answers. There's chaos in the White House as various factions try to influence the president.

Some of this might sound familiar. But this is not real life. It's the scenario in a war game called Dire Straits, set in 2020.

And it's being acted out, not on the world stage, but in a lecture theatre and seminar rooms at King's College, London.

Rules and referees

More than 100 people are taking part - academics, students, serving military officers and civil servants, as well as a few who do this for a hobby.
To an outsider, the game looks like chaos, but there are rules and referees.
Participants are given a scenario, which develops throughout the exercise

Tables have been set out representing countries.

The participants wear badges with their national flag and their role. There's a Russian president and foreign minister, a UN secretary general, military commanders and even journalists.

It's a noisy mix of debating society and board games: Risk meets Top Trumps meets chess.

On one table, there's a map of the region with cards placed on top with pictures of military hardware such as a US aircraft carrier and a nuclear submarine.
Participants include academics, students, serving military officers and civil servants

Then, there are the "live inserts". Tweets appear on giant television screens to signal another twist in the game. Some of them are the actual tweets of President Trump. It keeps everyone on their toes.

It's all been choreographed by Jim Wallman and Prof Rex Brynen, of McGill University, in Montreal, who has also done these kind of games with the US military.

Prof Brynen says in recent years there's been a "major resurgence of war gaming as a serious analytical and training tool in both the US and UK".
Prof Rex Brynen says there's growing interest in war gaming

In Dire Straits, he's overseeing events in the White House - a room down the corridor from the rest of the world in the lecture theatre. A dozen people are trying to influence President Trump, who's survived another election in this scenario.

Alex Jonas, who plays the role of a beleaguered White House chief of staff, is trying to decide which of the advisers gets access to the president. Alex's real job as a web developer sounds less frantic.
President Trump is not being played by a person.

Instead, there's a board with chance cards that reveal his state of mind. Some are based on his own tweets. Before lunch, one of the cards warns North Korea of "fire and fury", echoing a phrase the president used in August.

Prof Brynen says there are a lot of players trying to influence the president. "He's blowing hot and cold on China, and US ambassadors in the region feel he's not really listening." Some of this might reflect his own views of President Trump.

'Avoid group-think'

Over on the North Korea table, the man playing Kim Jong-un has demanded that his team applaud each decision he makes. The umpire for North Korea is a real-life British military officer, Maj Tom Mouat, who lectures at the Defence Academy, at Shrivenham. His presence suggest this is a serious business.

He says war gaming "allows you to better understand what options you have". "You avoid the group-think mindset," he says.
Each participant takes on a specific role in the unfolding scenario

He gives the example of the US academic Thomas Schelling, who was involved in war gaming during the Cold War and helped identify the need for a "hotline" for the US and Russian presidents to talk.

Philip Sabin, professor of strategic studies at King's College, says war gaming highlights the dangers in a "safe way".

He refers to a recent game involving Russia and its Baltic neighbours, in which nuclear weapons were fired.

"War games are designed to explore how things can go horribly wrong," he says. "That helps you to avoid getting into that situation in real life."

Regional solution?

So what happens at the end of the Dire Straits war game?

An unpredictable US policy led North Korea's neighbours to seek regional solutions. None relied on US leadership in the game.

South Korea secretly prepared the way for its own nuclear weapons programme. Taiwan used the chaos to further its independence from China. The US accelerated the deployment of a new anti-ballistic missile system.

As for North Korea, it made significant advances in its nuclear weapons programme. But no-one was prepared to risk a broader war, and the collapse of a nuclear-armed North Korea was seen as even more dangerous.

In the end, the major powers helped to de-escalate the crisis. Even in war gaming - where the stakes are of course much lower than real life - jaw-jaw is often better than war-war.

Shapeshifter Lyrics (feat. Styles Of Beyond) by Celldweller

Red, yellow, hit green, then go, breathe in slow

You ain't never seen nothing so rugged at 90
Uh huh, with the cops behind me yo!
The boiler's grinding, keep the cuffs, enjoy your doughnuts sir, you ain't gonna find me
It's not likely, the brains is blown out
You're chasing a ghost with no brakes, slow down
Hundred proof octane, ready to drip it
Stop playing, I'm hot man, gimme that pink slip

Time's up, the animals crept through
Leave them in the dust with a packet of jet fuel
Too quick, eat 'em up, better for pet food
No brain, slow lane, missing your head screws
Skin and bones let mess with your chrome set
Tricked out, hopping like your cruse in a cold chest
Parked in eagle with a safety pin
Take the backseat, now let the games begin, yeah

Ha, get ready, get set, let's roll
Road warrior in a bit of petrol
Red, yellow, hit green, then go, breathe in slow

Come on man, you can't be real
I'll show you what it is, let the anthem build
Put the pedal to the metal and go

Tough match, you lost by a hubcap
The big boss spray painted on my mud flap
Get a rush, yeah we're calling your cold bluff
Can never get enough
Step in, hold your breath and hang tight
Known for the big dollar bet in the cage fight
You're playing with the sharks, step inside
Everybody on your mark, get set, now let's ride.

That's right, put the pedal to the metal and go
The yellow madellow with slicks on sending 'em home
Stick cars in the concrete, gripping the road
So quick, get in the palm trees, look out, whoa
We got car keys hooked to remote controls
Hit a button that'll smoke and they'll rip you off
I told you, I don't want to close your casket
Quit now before you go blowing a gasket.

Ha, get ready, get set, let's roll
Road warrior in a bit of petrol
Red, yellow, hit green, then go, breathe in slow

Come on man, you can't be real
I'll show you what it is, let the anthem build
Put the pedal to the metal and go

All things melting
While time is shifting
Transist, transform (out purposely)
Yielding, bending
While time is shifting
Two shapes they can't get straight

Get ready, get set, let's roll
Come on man, you can't be real
I'll show you what it is, let the anthem build
If you want it, come and let me know
I'm right here, put the pedal to the metal and go
Come on man, you can't be real
I'll show you what it is, let the anthem build
Put the pedal to the metal and go
Against All Odds - Phil Collins

How can I just let you walk away
Just let you leave without a trace?
When I stand here taking every breath with you, ooh ooh
You're the only one who really knew me at all

How can you just walk away from me
When all I can do is watch you leave?
'Cause we've shared the laughter and the pain
And even shared the tears
You're the only one who really knew me at all

So take a look at me now
Well there's just an empty space
And there's nothing left here to remind me
Just the memory of your face
Ooh, take a look at me now
Well there's just an empty space
And you coming back to me is against the odds
And that's what I've got to face

I wish I could just make you turn around
Turn around and see me cry
There's so much I need to say to you
So many reasons why
You're the only one who really knew me at all

So take a look at me now
Well there's just an empty space
And there's nothing left here to remind me
Just the memory of your face

Now Take a look at me now
'Cause that's just an empty space
But to wait for you is all I can do
And that's what I've got to face

Take a good look at me now
'Cause I'll still be standing here
And you coming back to me is against all odds
It's the chance I've got to take
Take a look at me now
