Notice in the pic you posted the actual temperature is not shown.I would tend to agree with you on all points! However, I have to say, when I run there is a very noticable difference between having a dew point of 78 degrees versus a dew point of even 70 degrees. Believe me, it causes much more strain and physical exertion to achieve the same results.
It's the app from The Weather Channel. The actual temp does appear and is located further up in the app. Here are a couple of screenshots I just took to give you an idea of what I'm talking about. Hope this helps.Notice in the pic you posted the actual temperature is not shown.
The place where 107 appears on the app. Does the actual temp usually appear there or does it always say feels like?
I have Nordic genes and, while I believe most like the cold/cooler temps, I love the heat! If it seemed like I was complaining then I came across wrong.It's actually been quite nice here. Must be my Mediterranean genes.
My wife always thinks it too hot or cold and the temp only has to change 2 degrees.
Ned, I have been writing for four decades and I have worked in news for two decades. You are not incorrect in your assessment. I have seen a major decline in writing ability, in writing skills and perceive a loss of personal writing style. Entities also concluded it was a waste of money to employ Copy Editors and simply let the mistakes through now and correct later. This is not across the board, but prevalent to the most popular forms of news.Yes, the new thing. It's 93 but they are trying to convince me it's 110.

It's not news anymore and I rarely watch it.
Played ball in the yard with Bear. He didn't catch on fire or anything.
On the news last night. Crushing heat killing everything, 10000 scouts come to the state for national jamboree. I guess they will all die.
Expose - Counties with highest overdose deaths had highest wholesale drug shipments.
They are extorting money from drug wholesalers for the "opioid crisis" because thay shipped to many pain killers.
That's as earth shattering as figuring out the counties with the most cars sold the most gas.
The average American must be dumber than my cat now. That was planned too.
I took journalism in high school. 99% of the copy I see in the media would fail the class I had.Ned, I have been writing for four decades and I have worked in news for two decades.

I also think you get better journalism from a national source. Local print and television media has always been a vehicle for ad sales. In the past though, there was still journalistic integrity. Then, these stations and newspapers learned, if they paid much less, they could still sell their goods. Less pay often leads to less skill. In addition to paying less, they also combine jobs. A TV reporter in the field that wants a job these days better be able to edit their own video, do their own makeup, etc. There are also major players in local news with a proud agenda.
Sinclair Broadcast Group for example directs all of their affiliates what to say and promote with a deeply conservative agenda. They even own more than one local affiliate in some markets. In Pensacola they own the ABC and the NBC affiliate (and two independents). In Bakersfield, FOX and CBS. Flint, they own NBC and FOX. You get the idea. I could go on with several more.
You say people must be dumb, I do not think that is any worse than historically. I think what is different is people want their information quick and clean. Instead of a thoughtful write up that makes you think, it is just easier to be told what to think in a headline or meme. The degradation of news is coming from both sides. The greed and agenda of the provider and the laziness of the viewer. It is a sign that generally we simply no longer care to make the EFFORT. Integrity means taking the time to do what is right. To pay a little more as a consumer or make a little less as a company to do what is right. This is not just in news, but I use it as an example. It could just as easily have been retail. Walmart is cheapest, Amazon most convenient. That is why they are huge despite poor treatment of their workforce. We just say we don’t have time to do better as a society. We should make the time wherever we can.
I took my daughter to a Laser hair removal place for her Stash. During the initial inquiry a hot blonde informed me that she no longer buys razors I am sometimes clueless so she leaned in and repeated it again in no uncertain terms. I was throwing Benjamin's and looking for the Brass pole.
Next you will be naming your fish Biff and SkippyActually two of them came on a 4 hour boat ride to get here from the south shore of Long Island and docked next to my boat here in Peconic.
I don't see anything wrong with that. I had a long discussion about how unfair generational wealth was with a young person. Family is unfair also. Our kids not having school loans to pay off, unfair.Ned, I am trying to spend all the money I worked for all my life and I am doing a great job of it. Now If I can just plan to run out the same day that I croak, that is the trick.
