by Matthew Rusling

MIAMI, the United States, Sept. 13 (Xinhua ) -- Lifelong Miami resident Karina Castillo remembered clearly a clear, sunny day last year, when high tides flooded a street in a local neighborhood.

"I was standing in water during high tide Cheap Alex Ovechkin Shirt , on the street, and the water was still knee deep," she said.

That was many months before Hurricane Irma ravaged the city and made streets look like rivers, as the massive storm hit the city of Miami in the U.S. state of Florida over the weekend and grabbed nationwide headlines.

But experts said that hurricanes are not the main threat to the low-lying city, as rising sea levels threaten to put communities permanently under water.

For the first time in recorded history, ocean levels are rising, after being stable for the last 5,000 or 6,000 years. The U.S. National Ocean Service said global sea levels will likely continue to rise Cheap Jay Beagle Jersey , and Miami residents said flooding due to rising sea level has worsened over the years.

High tides -- sometimes called king tides -- even on clear, sunny days, can cause floodwaters to seep upward to street level through Miami's drainage system. That's because the city is built on a bed of limestone, which is porous and allows water to seep upward to street level.

For communities in Miami, flooding, even by a few feet, can have a serious impact. Flooded streets can cause businesses to shutter for days at a time, impacting their bottom line, as well as employees' paychecks.

The elderly are particularly impacted Cheap John Carlson Jersey , as they can miss important doctors' appointment or treatments, if vehicles are unable to traverse flooded streets to pick them up.

During one recent instance of flooding, police vehicles were unable to access one area, as their cars' warranties did not cover water damage that would likely occur from driving through knee-deep waters.

That can impact an area's safety, and floodwaters can also impact the ability of first responders get to people in an emergency. A woman in a flooded neighborhood was unable to get her regular dialysis treatments, Castillo said.

Flooding can, in some instances, cause sewer water to come up to street level, sprinkling flooded areas with human excrement and threatening to spread disease.

Describing that day many months ago Cheap Braden Holtby Jersey , Castillo said: "The sun was beating down on me, and (the flooding) was not due to rain. It was because of high tides and water coming in from the river and also through our drains on the street."

Residents say it's gotten worse over the years, and experts said that could continue as sea levels rise here and worldwide. Eventually, flooding could become more than just an annoyance, and take a significant toll.

"It's something that's happened in the last five years, that we're seeing an increase in the magnitude and the frequency of king tide flooding areas of Miami Beach and the community of Brickell," she said, referring to Miami's downtown area.

"Sea level rise has kind of transformed some of the communities in southeast Florida, and really all along the coast of Florida Cheap Andre Burakovsky Jersey ," she said.

"Particularly in areas where there's poor infrastructure and poor drainage of our sewer systems," she said.

"I grew up down here. But yet in the past five to 10 years, you've seen some flooding in some residential communities, where I didn't remember that happening growing up here," said Castillo, who is also a member of Mom's Clean Air Force, an organization concerned about how climate change impacts children's health.

CITY INFRASTRUCTURE

The city has been trying to tackle the situation by installing pumps, although last month one pump failed to work because it was not connected to a backup generator, after it lost power due to a storm.

Last month Cheap Philipp Grubauer Jersey , the mayors of both Miami and nearby Miami Beach vowed to push their cities to fund projects to fight flooding, although such upgrades have been discussed for years.

Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado has called on officials to address needs involving drainage, which were identified five years ago. The mayor is pushing for a multimillion-dollar infrastructure project involving pumps, sea walls and other measures meant to protect the city from rising seas.

In recent days, Hurricane Irma has demonstrated that Miami's drainage system is not equipped to handle large amounts of water.

On Sunday, Brickell Avenue, the downtown area's main drag and most populated area, looked like a river, with around three feet of water flowing through Cheap Christian Djoos Jersey , carrying debris, trash and tree branches. Local media also reported that someone saw a mattress floating around.

"We have poor drainage system and Miami ... has a lot of infrastructure problems and they are neglecting smart investment into infrastructure," Castillo said.

"So as we continue to see ... sea level rising, we're seeing the consequences of not planning for the long term, so we're seeing that affect our communities now," she said.

KING TIDES AND RISING SEA LEVELS

Daniel Kreeger, executive director of the Association of Climate Change Officers, explained to Xinhua how king tides flood the area.

"For Florida it's an issue because the king tides are already a problem for us without a hurricane," said Kreeger Cheap Devante Smith-Pelly Jersey , a Florida native.

During superstorm Sandy in 2012, which hit New York, national media attention was centered on damage to New York. But at the same time, Kreeger was seeing flooding in the Miami area, despite the absence of rainfall.

"Everyone was focused on what was going on in New York, and I'm looking and saying 'we've got huge chunks of land that are under water here, and we're not even getting rainfall.' That's the scary part," Kreeger said.

Bitcoin economics has not changed

YOU DON'T HAVE TO BUY A WHOLE BTC BITCOIN! Each bitcoin is equal to 100 million Satoshis, making a Satoshi the smallest unit of bitcoin currently recorded on the blockchain. Think of the Satoshi as the “cents” part of bitcoin. But unlike a penny that represents 0.01 USD, Satoshi represents roughly 0.00000001 BTC — or bitcoin to its eighth decimal.

Bitcoin forecast to 2029

Time model tends to forecast lower bound to prices. Stock-to-Flow model is a better model, click chart above to see details. It incorporates the halvings and better represents the monetary policy of Bitcoin. Hype cycles are expected around each halving as investors anticipate the price appreciation. Bitcoin has a fixed supply (maximum 21 million Bitcoins), therefore it cannot be devalued by central bank money printing (so called Quantitative Easing, QE). Bitcoin is also decentralised, meaning no single authority can control it. It has existed on the Internet for 10 years from 2009. It will be the money of the machines and Internet. Also described as digital gold due to its scarcity and high value.

This is a good short article that explains, why Bitcoin? Why Bitcoin?

Physical Gold

BullionVault

Protect yourself and family from central bank currency debasement and inflation in asset prices, housing, food. There are rising levels of financial, economic and geopolitical risk in the world. In the last 100 years, all currencies have lost 97-99% of their purchasing power. Some believe that the final move to zero will take place in the next few years.

Currency debasement through money printing is the destruction of fiat money purchasing power - $, €, ¥, £, yuan, Venezuelan Bolívar, Argentine Peso, Zimbabwean Dollar...

True inflation and cost of living is currently 8% higher than the government reports. Real wages are falling rapidly and most people are taking out more and more debt to make ends meet. Only the wealthy minority and banks benefit from the current system.

Protect yourself. Buy physical, allocated gold, silver, platinum online and store it in safe vaults outside your jurisdiction (Switzerland, UK, USA, Canada and Singapore) or, at home. Physical gold has limited supply. Buy before the panic!

Look what happened in Cyprus (2013), Greece (2015) and Spain (Catalonia 2017). The lesson is that the money in your bank account is not really yours. It can be taken or frozen by the government just when you need it. Maybe it is not a good idea to keep too much money in the bank, especially when the next financial crisis comes!
