  1. Hi Karyo, i hope we are just the exception to the rule... Just worrying a little about the blood pressure... About the heat, i feel it early, but i am used to it, without much problem... Just cold shower every day or maybe 2 times per day, plus air conditioning and that's all.
  2. Thanks, but i ain't so fat.. just 14 stones or 90 kgs and 1.83 m or 6 feet
  3. Hi all... I am Greek man 30 years old living in Germany... While during the nights and especially during 5-7 am i feel the cold, during the days the situation is different. I need 12 degrees C, to feel cold with short sleeve shirt and there will be the need to wear long sleeve shirt and then i need 7-8 degrees C to wear a jacket, while Germans wear long sleeve shirt with jacket from 17-18 degrees. So everything is ok with me, i am just different or i have a health problem? Soon, I am gonna have health exams, so what exactly i have to focus on? Thanks in advance.
  4. I have found an apartment that is located exactly above the river Rhine in Mannheim, Germany. See an image here: https://i.imgur.com/Xo8MfeC_d.jpg?maxwidth=640&shape=thumb&fidelity=medium Before i sign and pay, i should be sure there will not be any serious problem, living in this situation. So what is your opinion? It is exactly like living far from river or it is completely different? What about some annoying insects, like mosquitoes, or american cockroaches or german cockroaches? What about spiders? Generally speaking, in all Germany what is the "boss" of these animals? I have the following experiences: Athens, Greece: American cockroaches Countryside, Greece: Spiders Toronto, Canada: Bed bugs Gdansk, Poland: Cockroaches (smaller than the american ones, maybe german) So what is the "boss" of these animals in Germany, and especially in Mannheim? Also what about living in enviroment with high amounts of moisture and humidity? There should be some problems? What about allergies? And what about the pollution of the river? Since the position of the apartment is high, i am not afraid of flooding or overflowing. Thanks in advance.
  5. windy.com android app live, 14.00 german time, 28 September 2018. The first lightings are in the Messinia, southwest Greece.

  7. The last years, having lived and worked in many countries (Greece, Germany, Poland, Russia, Ukraine, UK, the Netherlands, USA and Canada), I have noticed a kind of racism against white straight men. First of all, you hear very often and you read about the rights of women, LGBT, blacks, gypsies, refugees, muslims, indigenous, junkies, etc and anyone except the serious white straight man who tries to survive, works strongly, some times 2 jobs, and generally speaking trying to be serious. So the first question is this: Do you agree that there is this kind of racism or not? For them who agree, why does it happen? Maybe because a serious white straight man is the last one who plays in rebellious - anti-systemic mode? Maybe this one is who understands very well technology, is up-to-date in that field and this one is who understands a few things more than the others (in business, politics, society etc)? I feel that the system is afraid of only these people, because they try to develop in an autonomous smarter and dangerous for the system way.
  8. Thanks, but for me it is difficult to find there, the forecast for the temperature in 850 hPa and 500 hPa.
  9. Hi everyone. In a week i will be in Ontario, so I am wondering, what is the best way to see the 850 and 500 in this region. Something like gfs in Europe?
  10. Now, there in England, what you support? Maybe your ex-colonies? What about Greece? You support us?
  11. Who one expected Greece into 16 without Spain, Italy, England and many other European team-countries?
  12. The first heat wave is coming in Athens this week so I am wondering about a few things... About the degrees of wet bulb temperature, when does body feel hot? When body feels heat wave? What degrees of wet-bulb temperature are dangerous for the health? Wiki just says: A sustained wet-bulb temperature exceeding 35 °C is likely to be fatal even to fit and healthy people, unclothed in the shade next to a fan; at this temperature we switch from cooling the skin (losing heat to the environment), to warming it. Thanks in advance...
  13. Storm in Athens, 04 / 06/ 2014... 11 lightnings during 3 minutes... recorded by Konstantinos with his smartphone in airplane mode....
  14. Hailstones in Konstantinos palm... Athens, Greece 13 April 2014https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VDpsfZ2yJRQ&feature=youtu.be
  15. Yes and it also saves the data to a virtual ram. This is the major sense, you can see the graph of wind speed in respect of time. And you can go to any point you want, for seeing its value.
  16. I understood, but why so awful calculations?My Kestrel 4500 NV, updated every second and it shows the real gust.For example it can show current wind speed in 32-second 31 mph, current wind speed in 33-second 31 mph and gust 33 mph, because it felt this, for example, in 32,7 second.
  17. In this case, why to say "this is the gust speed". It can say: "This is the current wind speed".Only a kind of small RAM is required for showing the real gust speed.
  18. Hello noob (lol) dave49. I will tell you my opinion.Gusts only occur for extremely short periods of time, usually lasting no more than just 20 seconds, occurring at 2-minute intervals.It is obvious (I hope so), that it does not show the current wind speed every 48 seconds as the gust speed. Also, it is obvious (I hope so), that it does not show the average wind speed of the 48-second interval as the gust speed.I think it shows you as the gust speed, the maximum wind speed of the 48-second interval. Maybe it saves this in a virtual ram (random access memory), before it updates the monitor.But if we have two gusts in the 48-second interval? Imagine this:...40 mph in 13-second41 mph in 14-second40 mph in 15-second...35 mph in 39-second36 mph in 40-second35 mph in 41-second...In this case, probably we have 2 max points. 41 mph in 14-second and 36 mph in 40-second. I think it will show the 41 mph, as gust speed and it is the best, because, according theory, gusts usually lasting no more than just 20 seconds, occurring at 2-minute intervals.Also, I can suggest you the best pocket weather tracker: Kestrel 4500 Night Vision: http://kestrelmeters.com/products/kestrel-4500-weather-meterI have it in my hiking activity and it is excellent. It is not stable weather station, but it can be. Also, bluetooth connectivity is available (more expensive of course).In the next months, I will try to create an app for android (with widget) for phones with weather sensors (s4 - note 3). It will calculate many current weather quantities, including wind speed - gust.
  19. I use yr widget and meteogram widget - Donate. Any other suggestion?
  20. I did not understand the definition from wikipedia. If a system has near-surface winds of at least 17 m/s (38 mph), it is not enough for calling it Polar Low?
  21. Is there android app from netweather.tv about international weather? Or only about UK?
  22. General talking, not especially about netweather models.In Athens, Greece, another one "polar cold" will come, and the temperature in my house from 3 degrees yesterday, will be 2.5 tomorrow night.
  23. In this thread we will discuss everything about polar low. Wikipedia: A polar low is a small-scale, short-lived atmospheric low pressure system (depression) that is found over the ocean areas poleward of the main polar front in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. The systems usually have a horizontal length scale of less than 1,000 kilometres (620 mi) and exist for no more than a couple of days. They are part of the larger class of mesoscale weather systems. Polar lows can be difficult to detect using conventional weather reports and are a hazard to high-latitude operations, such as shipping and gas and oil platforms. Polar lows have been referred to by many other terms, such as polar mesoscale vortex, Arctic hurricane, Arctic low, and cold air depression. Today the term is usually reserved for the more vigorous systems that have near-surface winds of at least 17 m/s (38 mph). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polar_low Every tropical depression - storm in Mediterranean is called Polar Low. Right?
  24. The queue of Cleopatra is coming to Greece.
