    Germany managed exploit Swedens weakness. Inability to cut out the threat from the wings.

    General Volcanic Activity Thread!

    Latest KILAUEA VOLCANO (VNUM #332010) 19°25'16" N 155°17'13" W, Summit Elevation 4091 ft (1247 m) Current Volcano Alert Level: WARNING Current Aviation Color Code: RED Kīlauea Volcano Lower East Rift Zone The eruption in the lower East Rift Zone (LERZ) continues with no significant change during the past 24 hours. Fountains from Fissure 8 spatter cone continue to supply lava to the open channel with only small, short-lived overflows. During an overflight early this morning, geologists observed incandescence from Fissure 22, but no associated spattering or flow. Lava is entering the sea this morning on the southern side of the entry area primarily through the open channel, but also along a 1-kilometer (0.6 mi) wide area. The entry areas are marked by billowing laze plumes. Pele's hair and other lightweight volcanic glass fragments from the lava fountain at Fissure 8 continue to fall downwind of the fissure, dusting the ground within a few hundred meters (yards) of the vent. High winds may waft lighter particles to greater distances. Residents are urged to minimize exposure to these volcanic particles, which can cause skin and eye irritation similar to volcanic ash. The most recent map of lava flows can be found at https://volcanoes.usgs.gov/volcanoes/kilauea/multimedia_maps.html HVO field crews are on site tracking the fountains, lava flows, and spattering from Fissure 8 as conditions allow and are reporting information to Hawaii County Civil Defense. Observations are also collected on a daily basis from cracks in the area of Highway 130; no changes in temperature, crack width, or gas emissions have been noted for several days. Volcanic gas emissions remain very high from Fissure 8 eruptions. Continuing trade wind conditions are expected to bring VOG to the southern and western parts of the Island of Hawaii. VOG information can be found at https://vog.ivhhn.org/ The ocean entry is a hazardous area. Venturing too close to an ocean entry on land or the ocean exposes you to flying debris from sudden explosive interaction between lava and water. Also, the lava delta is unstable because it is built on unconsolidated lava fragments and sand. This loose material can easily be eroded away by surf, causing the new land to become unsupported and slide into the sea. Additionally, the interaction of lava with the ocean creates "laze", a corrosive seawater plume laden with hydrochloric acid and fine volcanic particles that can irritate the skin, eyes, and lungs. Magma continues to be supplied to the Lower East Rift Zone. Seismicity remains relatively low in the area with numerous small magnitude earthquakes and low amplitude background tremor. Higher amplitude tremor is occasionally being recorded on seismic stations close to the ocean entry. Additional ground cracking and outbreaks of lava in the area of the active fissures are possible. Residents downslope of the region of fissures should heed all Hawaii County Civil Defense messages and warnings. Kīlauea Volcano Summit At 6:52 p.m. HST on June 22, after approximately 25 hours of elevated seismicity, a collapse explosion occurred at the summit producing an ash-poor steam plume that rose 500 ft above the ground surface (4,500 ft above sea level) before drifting to the SW. The energy released by the event was equivalent to a magnitude 5.3 earthquake. Seismicity dropped abruptly from a high of 40 earthquakes per hour (many in the magnitude 3 range) leading up to the collapse explosion to 10 or less earthquakes per hour afterwards. Overnight, seismicity gradually increased, reaching about 30 earthquakes per hour by daybreak. Inward slumping of the rim and walls of Halemaʻumaʻu continues in response to ongoing subsidence at the summit.

    As I said if they don't cut out crosses from the wing they'll concede. They didn't cut the cross out and got what they deserved.

    VR badly implemented Captains of both teams should have two appeals each half. If they win they keep it if they lose they lose an option to appeal. Even then we've seen the people monitoring the VR get it hopelessly wrong as well.

    Well Sweden just forced German keeper into a brilliant save. Germany going forward okay defensively a load of dog wotsits. Dunno how well the German manager can polish a few turds. Sweden manager same again guys but cut out the crosses from the wings.

    If I was the Sweden Manager is the number of crosses they are allowing from the wings. They'll concede if they don't stop those from coming in.

    Dodgy defense exposed for the third time and this time the Germans concede.

    A better start by Germany could be two one up by now. However their defense is still very suspect. Defintley pen for Sweden but again a poor decision by the ref.

    Kids do even in the parks. Ahh Klinnsman I remember watching a seria a game when he got fouled. He turned to the player telling him he was going to get him sent off. A few dives later the player was off.

    Always amuses me when they clutch the wrong part of the body. Unfortunately at some point a player will die as a ref won't see quickly enough how series an injury is and thinks the player is play acting.

    Squeakly bum time for Mexico as Korea pull one back with two minutes to go.
  12. God knows what you're looking at. The high pressure drifts east then north eastward this does allow a weakness to the north west and south east in fantasy Island. However it certainly doesn't retrogress westward.
  13. Pretty good 12oz GFS very warm to hot which should keep most people should be okay with. Thee easterly breeze should mean nights are comfortable to sleep in as well. No sign of a breakdown with rain generally being away expect very deep in lala land where it plays around with Ireland and northern Scotland and perhaps the channel island. So guaranteed a one of the warmest Junes on record here and a dry one.

    South Korea V Mexico is a good game. 50th Mexico goal for a certain ex man u player.

    Windows Creaters Spring update

    Looks like the stuttering issues were due to a dying psu. Annoying that it didn't wait until the new threadripper was out. Anyway moved to all amd setup running nicely. Didn't expect windows to boot but it did and then cleared all the intel drivers out and running smoothly. Had re-activate windows and office, and my chessbase program plus unreal T 3 which is annoying.

    Windows Creaters Spring update

    Yet another update no problems installing however Re-introduced stutter in games. Removing all the x box stuff improved things but didn't fix it. The next thing IO noticed that it had partly nobbled my sound card so I only had 44hz playback and no dolby. You could the receiver detecting the different inputs but no sound. Uninstalling and re-installing the drivers didn't fix. So I had to go for the version which didn't support dolby live which fixed the issue. However the stutter is still ongoing.

    We played poorly after 20 minutes and Harrys goal as my mate said "covered up some huge cracks" so huge the Tunisian defender fell into one was my reply. If we had drawn I think most people would recognized how bad our display was. Thankfully Ali won't be playing we just need Sterling to get bitten by a rabid midge and we may end up with an even stronger team. Neither those two players have done anything on the international stage recently to warrant an automatic starting place.
  18. A mild day with hazy sunshine and annoying breeze which gets just gets up when you're emptying the garden vac and blows a load of shredded private into your eyes. Max temp so far 19.9C, Barometer 1026mb falling, Wind F3 WNW, Rainfall Nil
  19. Sorry you must be looking at the archives for 2007 or confusing high pressure for low pressure. The coming week may give something for people who like low 20's and some high 20's for those who love heat. North west of the country may see some rain and a risk of some rain for the far south this weekend which if Thundery will make another group of people happy.
  20. I don't see any breakdown by Friday. By Sunday you're seeing some activity in the far south but it's so far off in deep FI I wouldn't worry about it too much and could well be gone again by 12oz run. Otherwise slightly better 06oz with a slight reduction temperatures which again could go back up on the 12 oz. At the moment the prospects for the coming week are looking pretty good. Dry very warm possibly hot and being dry the garden shouldn't grow much :)
  21. A mild night now dry with hazy sunshine due to cirrus cloud. Temp 11.8C, low 10.9C, Barometer 1027mb falling, Wind F2 variable, Rainfall nil
  22. Yes not a good outlook. If the GFS comes off we have a good chance of a record warm June. Hopefully the ECM will show a cooler more pleasant outlook. The clue will be the actual placement of the high pressure.
  23. A warm day with almost unbroken sunshine Max temp 22.8C now 21.4C, Barometer1028mb falling, Wind F3 WSW, Rainfall Nil
  24. Good chance looking at the GFS 12oz good chance Sheffield will record it's 2nd warmest June on record and the warmest since 1957. That's if it comes off.
  25. Sunny Sheffield back down to 15.7C+2.0C above normal. Rainfall unchanged.
