#Alabama #RTR 99.9%/89.5%
#Arkansas #WPS 55.3%/11.0%

Ready for the #CFB Analytics Spring Top 40? Here we go. This Power Ranking is derived from a model which utilizes full Coach Staff efficiency metrics, roster talent, & returning production among other metrics. No opinion here, I just regurgitate the numbers. #NoOpinionJustNumbers
40 #Kentucky #BBN #SEC Power Rating: 61.726
Returning Production for the Wildcats may be a problem. At 39.72%, it puts them at 113th in the country. The schedule is manageable tho drawing Ole Miss & Miss State out the West. #CFB
39 #Washington #PurpleReign #Pac12
Power Rating: 62.271
Really like the new coaching staff in Seattle. Should put them in a better position to win. Roster talent purge from the prev regime will have an early effect (last 2 classes were 39th, 86th) but the ship has been righted.

प्रकृति: रक्षति रक्षिता ! Mangrove forest after a cyclone. The line of defense after a cyclone.
#Mangrove; not only home for various species but also a tool against #Disaster. Tropical country like India, with densely populated 7500 km long coastline, will be effected by cyclones more due to #ClimateChange. This salt tolerant species acts as a shield against cyclones. 2/n
So how it works. Reposting my old tweets. Mangroves create a maze & dense habitat. With species which are salt tolerant & special adaptations. They act like buffer & consume the winds & energy. So after passing the storms get dampen. 3/n

Today is #WorldMangrovesDay. So let me remind you. #Mangroves;

- acts as buffer & reduce impact of cyclones & #storm surge.
- they break the #wind force
- provide #habitat to #animals during cyclone or otherwise
- they reduce #pollution.

We just need to protect them.

They are prop roots. In #mangrove #ecosystem they are adventitious support roots. They Grow down from lateral branches, in a way support trees, with doing other root functions. Additionally roots buffer against damage to coasts & enhance biodiversity & carbon sequestration.

@ipcc_ch reports that b/w 1971 & 2010, oceans absorbed over 90% of the heat gained by the planet due to #globalwarming. This led to #sealevel rise and has also resulted in higher frequency & intensity of #cyclones worldwide. #ClimateChange #MumbaiMustPrepare @mumbaismagic
Indian Ocean has also warmed but what is worrying is the higher rate of #warming in comparison to other global ocean basins. Data shows that Indian Ocean’s rapid basin-wide warming of ~1degC over the last 60 yrs exceeds that of the global average of ~0.7 degC. #MumbaiMustPrepare
Arabian Sea & Bay of Bengal have also seen consistent warming in past decades. The trend in rise in sea surface temperature for BoB has been 0.16C/decade & 0.18C/decade for AS. Arabian Sea indeed has been warming quite rapidly and impacts are for us to see. #MumbaiMustPrepare

A 2nd pre-monsoon tropical cyclone off the Indian coast, #CycloneYaas, has formed over the Bay of Bengal, just a week after #CycloneTauktae made landfall on Gujarat’s Saurashtra coast on May 17, 2021. Follow this thread to know more:
#CycloneYaas is very likely to cross the north Odisha-West Bengal coasts between Paradip and Sagar Island around May 26, 2021, at noon with wind speed between 155-165 km per hour, gusting up to 185 km per hour
#CycloneYaas will cause rainfall ranging from moderate to extremely heavy in Odisha’s Jagatsingpur, Kendrapara, Bhadrak, Balasore, Jajpur, Ganjam, Mayurbhanj, Cuttack, Dhenkanal, Khurda, Puri, Angul and Sundergarh districts between May 25 and May 26 mausam.imd.gov.in/imd_latest/con…

For yall who don't understand what has happened with Iowa State football in the past 5 years...

Year 1: Matt Campbell comes in as our new head coach. By the time we ended winter workouts we had 60-70 guys left on the roster. Still, there was much work to be done. It took most of
the season but that year we had to learn how to play hard. This was the beginning of building our culture.

Year 2: This was about learning how to play as a team. We weren't perfect, but we improved. That was a magical season. After some upsets we go to the Liberty Bowl and some
guys you will never remember the names of made some incredible plays to help bring home that trophy. A torch was lit.

Year 3: This year in my opinion was the toughest we had. We still had to learn how to finish games - not just the easy ones. We struggled early on but surged in

Today severe cyclone Nivar will hit eastern coast of India. In 12 seconds learn how coastal green shelter belts check tsunami & cyclones. Dutch research institute Deltares.
We are facing one more #cyclone today. So let me remind you. #Mangroves;

Proud to announce our new partnership with the head coaches for @CycloneFB @HawkeyeFootball @UNIFootball @DrakeBulldogsFB. Each coach has taped video messages encouraging Iowans to #RegisterToVote and #BeAVoter. Digital ads will also share the message ahead of the 2020 election. Image
"I urge all Iowans to do their part on November 3rd and get out and vote. Whether it’s in person or via an absentee ballot, I hope we all exercise this right that can make a positive impact within our communities.” – Cyclone Football Coach Matt Campbell #Cyclones #BeAVoter
"There is no better way to engage with your community than by getting involved in the electoral process. Whether you participate in person or via absentee ballot, make a positive impact by registering to vote today.” – Iowa Hawkeye Football Coach Kirk Ferentz #Hawkeyes #BeAVoter

Version 3 of the #CFBPlayoff rankings were released last night. What you expected? If youve followed along since early Oct you know the process. You werent surprised. For the rest of you, lets take a look & compare to what was projected using the same process used for 5 yrs.
First off, why does the committee use this process? Think about it. 14 busy guys make up this committee. They have roughly 60 hrs from when the last game ends on Sat to when they need to have this Top 25 created on Tues. If they evaluate only 30 teams to get that 25, how much
time is adequate to evaulate? 1 hr? Thats 30 hrs of evaluation. Half the time is gone & no one has slept. The process of getting a consensus out of 14 people hasnt even started. Thats why this process is kept so simple, & its why they have a defined predictable process.

The #Earth has already warmed by more than 1 °C due to #ClimateChange. Looking at our common home from space, we can witness the impacts in real-time. Thread. 1/10 🌎
We see that #wildfires are becoming more frequent and intense, like here in California. 2/10
