🌀 Severe Tropical Cyclone Trevor made its second landfall at ~1124 UTC+10 (AEST) as a Category 4 Severe Tropical Cyclone on the Australian Tropical Cyclone Scale and a Category 3 Major Hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind scale.

It made landfall ~100km west of the Northern Territory-Queensland border.

🌀 Severe Tropical Cyclone Veronica is actually a Category 4 Severe Tropical Cyclone on ATCS while being a Category 1 Hurricane on SSHWS, this major divide is due to difference on what qualifies as sustained wind between the two scales with ATCS using 10 min average, where SSHWS uses 1 min average. (ATCS defines it right as that is the universal standard put forward by the World Meteorological Organization's Tropical Cyclone Programm)

Veronica is expected to make landfall around 1500 UTC+10 (AEST) between Whim Creek and Port Hedland as a Category 4 Severe Tropical Cyclone ATCS.

The monsoon could be nice and not pause the rain every other hour thanks.

I find that black pepper or capsaicin is quite rapid at reducing my anxiety.

A new Tropical Cyclone has formed in the Basin adjacent to the basin I live in 🌀 Tropical Cyclone Tino is active Cyclone in the South Pacific it is currently a Category 1 Tropical Cyclone on the Australian Tropical Cyclone Scale (Tropical Storm on the Saffir Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale).

Most of Fiji is under Tropical Cyclone Warning or Watch (warning = tropical storm winds possible within 24hrs, watch = tropical storm winds possible betwees 24-48hrs) and Somoa looks like it will be in the track of this storm.

It doesn't look like it'll cross into the Australian Region Tropical Cyclone Basin at this point.

This is footage from the 3rd of Janurary, Kangaroo Island which was totally consumed by one of the many firestorms that affected Australia since September 2019, and many still on going in New South Wales and Victoria (some of which were active on the 3rd and still going).

The wind seen in this video was entirely produced by the firestorm.

cw for the video: Disaster Footage, and Swearing.

Facebook has rolled out third party fact checking to try and stop fake news, turns out third party is extremely bias and will flag something as fake if it so much as hints at capitalism being an awful failure, or criticising US imperialism, or neocolonialism, and I'm 90% sure it is doing exactly as intended.

Well that is useful, if you have an Australian medicare card (government run health insurance) and you sign up for a private health insurance and are bellow 90k AUD income make sure to submit a Government Rebate form with your medicare details because under 90k AUD get a 25% reduction in premiums.

Trying to learn how to build in fortnite, it is very different to the other battle royale games I've played ('Ark: Survival of the Fittest' which is just a battle royale version of the survival game 'Ark: Survival Evolved') where you craft structure items then place them.

first ever match of fortnite lost instantly from control unfamilarity, second match won well that is what I call a turn around.

It is weird when American Medical Professionals use 'normo-' as a prefix, when the more common prefix used is 'eu-' elsewhere, examples:

Euglycemia/Normoglycemia = Normal levels of glucose in blood

Euthymia = Normal mood range

Eutension/Normotension = normal blood pressure.

Anabolic Hormone has a broader meaning in biochemistry than it does in layperson Coloquialism.

Anabolic Hormones in everyday speak is synonymous with Androgens, however Anabolic hormones are any hormones that promote cell proliferation or anabolism (building up molecules rather than breaking them down which is termed catabolism).

Examples of Anabolic Hormones that fit the broader definition: Estradiol, Insulin, Insulin-like Growth Factor 1 (also an agonist for the insulin rereptor), Human Somatotrophin (aka Human Growth Hormone), Progesterone, and Prolactin.

Examples of Catabolic Hormones (opposite of Anabolic Hormones): Somatostatin (Anti-Growth Hormone), Cortisone, Cortisol, and Glucagon (also produced in pancreas and is the opposite of insulin so the two hormones rise and fall through out the day keeping glucose in blood in specific range)

🌀 Severe Tropical Cyclone Claudia is now a Category 3 Severe Tropical Cyclone on the ATCS which means Hurricane/Typhoon Intensity, this means 10-min average winds near the centre is ≥65kts (75mph, 120km/h) and ≤85kts (100mph, 160km/h).

TC Claudia Cat 3 continues to deepen. 10:03 AWST January 13 ― Force Thirteen AU

It is pissing down raining rn, a trough is overhead which is connected with the active monsoon trough that spawned 🌀 Tropical Cyclone Claudia, and is across the entire north of Australia.

It is bloody humid as well but that is expected with so much moisture being moved about by a complex trough system.
