Looks like @FERC will put everything on the table regarding @pjminterconnect 's capacity market, and it's hard to not see this as a proxy trial for capacity markets in general.

So, where do we go on resource adequacy?

Buffalo is currently frozen and crippled following the disastrous 2-day lake effect snow and high wind event being called the #BuffaloStorm2022 #BuffaloBlizzard.

Here’s what I found.

What Is The Knowledge Graph?

The Knowledge Graph is an intelligent model that taps into Google’s vast repository of entity and fact-based information and seeks to understand the real-world connections between them. #WinterStorm #WilliamIsABully #wenclair Instead of interpreting every keyword and query literally, Google infers what people are looking for. The goal of the Knowledge Graph – as Google explains nicely in their (still relevant) introductory video – is to transition “from being an information… engine [to] a knowledge engine.” It’s part of Google’s change from relying on strings (word matching) to things (idea matching.)

Google uses the Knowledge Graph’s understanding of semantic search and the

Dear Westjetters, I join you in the frustration of being sidelined by @WestJet led by the failed leadership of @AHoensbroech and will proactively use my cancelled time not to grieve missing Christmas, but to analyze data on their failures to deliver while other airlines could. 🧵
2/ Today is a good day to analyze incoming data about flights because @WestJet "proactively cancelled" them due to #ONStorm.…
3/ I'm more convinced it was because of resource management failure & I'll track flights coming out of #YYC (their hub) to these destinations to see it in comparison to other airlines like @AirCanada @FlairAirlines @Lynx_Air and @SunwingVacay. Something you should do too @CTA_gc

East/S.E. #Nebraska
Plz rethink going out #NYE & opt to stay home. The conditions will be down right dangerous & even life threatening. IF you insist, at the very least take thick blankets, warm clothes, charged cells & a survival kit with you.

#winterstorm #bittercold Image
#Snow #Nebraska

Predicted snowfall amounts. Besides the above have battery cables, a mini shovel, cat liter/sand for traction & a headlamp, flashlight. Let someone know where you're going & what route.

#winterstorm #bittercold #blowingsnow Image
