Hurricane Delta sped up one Louisiana couple’s wedding by a few days, but judging by the smiles on the bride and groom, it certainly didn’t dampen the affair.

Ian and Taylor Gaspard from Abbeville were supposed to get married Saturday, Oct. 10, with 300 people to wish them well inside the Saint Mary Magdalen Church, a scenic brick building in the town’s center surrounded by green lawn and oak trees.

But Hurricane Delta had other plans.

After watching the storm slowly make its way toward Louisiana — and after a

Alysha Clark dedicates Storm title to Black girls

Even as green and gold confetti flew and champagne bottles were uncorked, the Seattle Storm continued to “Say Her Name” as the WNBA has done all season.

Storm forward Alysha Clark spent much of her post-game video call with media talking about “the reason for the season” in working for social justice from the “wubble.” She dedicated the Storm’s 2020 championship to the Black girls and women around the country, adding she hopes they feel “just as victorious as I do.”

Clark was asked how the 2020 title compares to the Storm’s 2018 championship run, which had most of the same roster but was won under very different circumstances. The WNBA played its 24th season this year in a bubble environment at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida, during the COVID-19 pandemic.

And it tipped off amid a national reckoning with racial relations and

New 3-D model could explain the formation of a hexagon storm on Saturn

Interplanetary storm chasing

With its dazzling system of icy rings, Saturn has been a subject of fascination since ancient times. Even now the sixth planet from the sun holds many mysteries, partly because its distance away makes direct observation difficult and partly because this gas giant (which is multiple times the size of our planet) has a composition and atmosphere, mostly hydrogen and helium, so unlike that of Earth. Learning more about it could yield some insights into the creation of the solar system itself.


One of Saturn’s mysteries involves the massive storm in the shape of a hexagon at its north pole. The six-sided vortex is an atmospheric phenomenon that has been fascinating planetary scientists since its discovery in the 1980s by the American Voyager program, and the subsequent visit in 2006 by the U.S.-European Cassini-Huygens mission. The storm is about 20,000 miles in diameter and is bordered by bands of winds

The Seattle Storm are WNBA champions again. Already up 2-0 in the 2020 WNBA Finals, they took care of business in impressive fashion on Tuesday night, beating the Las Vegas Aces, 92-59 in Game 3 to complete a three-game sweep. This is Seattle’s second title in the last three seasons and the fourth in franchise history.

With the win, the Storm tied the now-defunct Houston Comets and the Minnesota Lynx for the most titles in league history with four. In addition, the Storm matched the Comets with a perfect record in those appearances, going 4-0. Even more impressive is that in all of their Finals appearances combined, the Storm have only lost one game. 

After finishing the regular season 18-4, the Storm continued their dominance in the playoffs, where they didn’t lose a single game. They swept the Lynx in the semifinals, then swept the Aces in the
