FROM Fionn and Emma to Aileen and Hector... Brits are becoming accustomed to UK storms being given names like they are in the US. As Tropical Storm Florence threatens to bring havoc in the UK, this is how it all works. Why are some UK storms given names? The naming of storms has long been common in America and now we too are christening severe weather systems. Analysis has shown that naming storms makes people more aware of the severe weather and helps them prepare in advance.

In the winter season of 2016/17, the names included Angus, Barbara, Conor and Doris. Surveys showed people were more aware of the threat and more likely to take action after hearing the name of a storm, rather than a forecast simply saying bad weather is on the way.

A review of state records shows that two members of the university's elected Board of Regents accepted in total nearly $30,000 in campaign contributions from donors associated with funds receiving U-M investments. In addition, a family who helps guide the university's investment strategy contributed more than $29,000 to the board's longest-serving member. To critics, some of the donations could pose a conflict of interest. "Something doesn’t have to be obviously illegal for it to be the kind of thing a flagship state university should be 100 miles away from," Georgetown University law professor Brian Galle said in an interview. "There is a stink to this arrangement, not to say that it’s … [Read more...] about U-M regent returns problematic donations from Stephen Ross
