Subtropical Storm Melissa has formed in the middle of the Atlantic. Strengthening is possible over the next couple of days, but Melissa is no threat to land.

Super Typhoon Haiyan (190mph, pressure 890mb), is rapidly approaching the Philippines.  

It is by far the most powerful storm this year, and probably one of the most intense systems ever recorded.

Just  3 hours ahead of setting the record the the latest first Atlantic Hurricane on record, Humberto strengthens into a hurricane (75mph 992mb)

The system is still not expected to become a significant threat to any land.

In a recent paper, #MIT physicist Jeremy England mathematically modeled the replication of E. coli #bacteria and found that the process is nearly as efficient as possible: E. coli produce at most only about six times more heat than they need to meet the constraints of the second law of #thermodynamics.
