  • Listen: ‘Pennyworth’ Executive Producer Talks Delving into Alfred’s Backstory August 17, 2019
    Bruno Heller may have served as an executive producer on the Batman-inspired series “Gotham” for the past five years, but it’s actually real-life people (not superheroes) that intrigue the producer the most. It’s for that exact reason that Heller’s newest series finds him exploring the origin stories of Batman’s butler Alfred in the Epix drama […] […]

  • Locarno Film Review: ‘Instinct’ August 17, 2019
    Now that “Game of Thrones” has finally reached its conclusion, releasing its gifted international ensemble into the casting wilds, will Hollywood remember just what it has in Carice van Houten? It’s not that the statuesque Dutch thesp hasn’t been consistently employed since her startling 2006 breakout in Paul Verhoeven’s “Black Book,” or even that she’s […] […]

  • Box Office: ‘Good Boys’ Eyes Best Original Comedy Opening of 2019 August 17, 2019
    Universal’s “Good Boys” is surpassing expectations as it heads toward an estimated $20.8 million opening weekend at the domestic box office following $8.3 million in Friday ticket sales.

  • As Woodstock Turns 50, the Fest’s 10 Most Sacred Music Moments (Watch) August 17, 2019
    Cars were left abandoned along the New York Interstate. Electrical and speaker systems fuzzed and popped. Amps blew then went silent. The rain was endless as the mud sank deep and rank. Young children ran naked and dazed through crowds of strangers. Food was scarce. Water, unclean. Looking back, Woodstock seems a more apocalyptic, than […]

  • My Mostly OK Maisel Day (Column) August 17, 2019
    When Amazon announced its first-ever Maisel Day, I was intrigued. For one day, Aug. 15, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” fans and Angelenos (fangelenos?) could hit up various restaurants, theaters and retailers throughout Los Angeles for special deals, all at 1959 prices. Among the gems: $2.50 makeovers, $0.99 pastrami sandwiches and $0.30 for a gallon of […] […]

  • Pedro Costa’s ‘Vitalina Varela’ Triumphs at Locarno Film Festival August 17, 2019
    The 72nd Locarno Film Festival drew to a close Saturday with Portuguese auteur Pedro Costa’s dark and detached film “Vitalina Varela” coming away with several awards together with superlatives from segments of the hardcore cinephile crowd, including jury president Catherine Breillat. In announcing the Golden Leopard prize for the film, as well as best actres […]

  • Locarno Film Review: ‘Vitalina Varela’ August 17, 2019
    Frequently beautiful compositions and the theatrical use of a fierce kind of artifice have long been the hallmarks of Portuguese auteur Pedro Costa, regarded by a small but influential group of aesthetes as one of the great filmmakers of our era. For those in tune with his vision, the director’s films offer an exciting lesson […]

  • Locarno Film Review: ‘Notre dame’ August 17, 2019
    Not to be too cynical about it, but might the recent horrific fire in Paris’ cathedral attract audiences to a film in which the gothic gem plays a major role? It’s likely a wiser marketing strategy than promoting the unrelenting silliness of Valerie Donzelli’s oh-so-kooky comedy “Notre dame,” the writer-director-star’s return to contemporary Paris following […]

That’s 5 mph higher than Michael’s wind estimate of 155 mph at the time of landfall.   In its post-storm tropical cyclone report, […]
  • AMS on the Air Podcast: Alexandra Cranford Talks about Women in TV Meteorology
    The largest biographical study to date of TV meteorologists shows some disturbing disadvantages for women in the profession.  You can hear Alexandra Cranford, the author of that study, discuss the study on the latest episode of our podcast, AMS on the Air. Cranford, who is an AMS Certified Broadcaster with WWL-TV in New Orleans, made an […]
  • World Water Day: An Integrated Appreciation
    Wow! It’s World Water Day, as observed by the United Nations. Pretty much everything AMS is about has to do with water—from raindrops to atmospheric rivers to thunderstorms and hurricanes on to ocean currents and groundwater. Which is why this concluding paragraph from the AMS Policy Program’s recently released study, “Toward an Integrated Approach to […]
  • International Women’s Day: Unsilencing the Forgotten Pillars of Meteorology
    In the pages of scientific history, one often hears too much silence. A science–especially meteorology–is built by women who are rarely, if ever, remembered, let alone credited. So maybe on this International Women’s Day, and more broadly, for Women’s History Month, let’s look back in the pages of history at the dedication to meteorology that women have always […]
  • AMS on the Air: Ada Monzón Talks about Disaster and Transformation
    Most of us can barely imagine the experience AMS Fellow Ada Monzón went through to warn–and then come to the aid of–her fellow citizens in Puerto Rico during Hurricane Maria of 2017. On the latest episode of our podcast, AMS on the Air, the award-winning broadcast meteorologist for WIPR-TV tells BAMS Senior Editor Chris Cappella, With Maria, I was […]
  • Beyond Leadership to Mentorship: An Opportunity for Early Career Professionals
      by Mona Behl, Georgia Sea Grant Guru-shishya parampara is a centuries-old tradition in India that fosters a thoughtful exchange of ideas, expertise, and friendship between a guru (teacher) and shishya (student). The relationship between a guru and a shishya is an emotional, spiritual, and intellectual friendship built on the foundation of trust, respect and […]
  • GOES-16/17 Virtual Science Fair Seeking Entries From Students
    by Margaret Mooney, CIMSS NOAA’s Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS) in Madison Wisconsin is pleased to announce a virtual science fair for students from grades 6-14 applying GOES-16 or GOES-17 data to investigate weather scenarios and natural hazards. ‘Pleased’ is probably too mild of a word to describe our enthusiasm around this project.

  • Flying the Fastest Skies
    How fast can an airliner go? Monday night a Virgin Atlantic Boeing 787-9 reached 801 m.p.h. en route from Los Angeles to London. Matthew Cappucci of the Washington Post reported the jet reached this amazing speed—a record for the Boeing 787-9 and probably the highest speed for a non-supersonic commercial flight—while cruising at 35,000 feet over the central Pennsylvania. Clearly the plane was hurled along by an […]
  • New Western Storms Scale to Describe Intensity, Potential Impacts of Atmospheric Rivers
    Hurricanes are classified by the Saffir-Simpson Scale and tornadoes by the Enhanced Fujita Scale, and now atmospheric rivers—those long, transient corridors of water vapor that fuel flooding rain events each winter in the West, especially California—will also be scaled to enhance awareness and bolster prediction. The new AR scale ranks their intensity and potential impacts […]
  • Making Sure No Tornado Damage Is Too Small
    Planetary, synoptic, meso-alpha, meso-beta, local, and more—there are atmospheric scales aplenty discussed at AMS meetings. Enter microtopography, a once-rare word increasingly appearing in the mix in research (for example, here and here). The word is also coming up as researchers are getting new tools to examine the interaction of tornadoes with their immediate surroundings. Microtopography looks like a potential factor in tornadic damage […]
