I Am In The Wind
Do not stand at my grave and weep,I am not there, I do not sleep.I am a thousand winds that blow;I am the diamond glints on the snow.I am the sunlight on ripened grain;I am the gentle autumn's rain.When you awaken in the morning's hush,I am the swift uplifting rushOf quiet birds in circled flight.I am the soft star that shines at night.Do not stand at my grave and cry.I am not there; I did not die.
I Am In The Wind
The poem's first four lines are engraved on one of the stones of the Everest Memorial, Chukpi Lhara, in Dhugla Valley, near Everest. Reference to the wind and snow and the general theme of the poem, the absence of the departed, particularly resonate with the loved ones of those who "disappeared" in the mountain range to whom the memorial is dedicated. It is also reproduced on the gravestone of the actor Charles Bronson.
Do not stand By my grave, and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep--I am the thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints in snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain,I am the gentle, autumn rain.As you awake with morning's hush, I am the swift, up-flinging rush Of quiet birds in circling flight. I am the day transcending night.Do not stand By my grave, and cry-- I am not there,I did not die.
Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there. I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning's hush I am the swift uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there. I did not die.
I am the wind on the sea.I am the ocean wave.I am the sound of the billows.I am the seven-horned stag.I am the hawk on the cliff.I am the dewdrop in sunlight.I am the fairest of flowers.I am the raging boar.I am the salmon in the deep pool.I am the lake on the plain.I am the meaning of the poem.I am the point of the spear.I am the god that makes fire in the head.Who levels the mountain?Who speaks the age of the moon?Who has been where the sun sleeps?Who, if not I?
Wind(s) of Destruction, the last line at the end of the lyrics, has two references. First (in plural, with letter S: "Winds") is for Desperado Enforcement LLC., formed by Sundowner, Mistral and Monsoon, a comparative way to the life of a mercenary who takes orders, acts and disappears when he is indicated (in the same way that the wind carries the physical "destruction" caused in a territory by a lost and forgotten past war). And second (in singular, without letter S: "Wind") is a benchmark comparison, "wind of destruction" as the person who carried out the acts, the human weapon.
When the suspension began, CBS Sports rules analyst Mark Dusbabek said conditions were especially dire on the ninth hole at Monterey Peninsula, where the wind made it not fair to competitors to continue playing.

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- A strong wind was more than just a menace at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. It brought the tournament to a halt Saturday because of two holes on one of the courses, and set up a Monday finish without the amateurs.
Keith Mitchell made it through the worst stretch of wind at Pebble Beach, so strong that he hit an 8-iron on the 106-yard seventh hole. And right when he thought he was off the hook by getting through the ocean holes, the horn blew to stop play.
The culprit was the Shore course at Monterey Peninsula, particularly the stretch that runs along the ocean. Gary Young, the PGA Tour's chief referee, began getting reports that balls were moving on the greens. He said one amateur hit a putt and the wind began to blow it back toward the player.
With a three-course rotation, play has to stop at all three courses. The PGA Tour was hopeful of restarting later in the afternoon, except the wind was relentless and the forecast didn't provide any optimism.
"I haven't spoken with him. But the guy was out practicing in the rain and the wind this afternoon when everybody was inside," he said. "I can't imagine him not showing up. The weather's better tomorrow morning than in Buffalo right now, I can promise you that."
With the wind and their backs on the eighth, in which the second shot is over a corner of the ocean, Allen hit 6-iron off the tee, and then he hit another 6-iron to 12 feet on the fringe. Mitchell and Allen were 6 shots behind Rodgers.
For others, it was tough to hang on. Jordan Spieth figured he needed to be 3 or 4 under through the opening stretch at Pebble. The wind showed up on the par-3 fifth, where Spieth pulled it left into a bunker and made bogey. He finished the front nine with a bogey and a double bogey for a 39, leaving him on the cut line.
Mitchell had the toughest stretch of Pebble in the wind, but it was tough all over. Bramlett, who played college golf at Stanford, had 136 yards into the wind on No. 9 and hit 8-iron short of the green. On the par-5 14th, with the wind at his back, he had 210 yards up the hill and hit 8-iron over the green.
Everyone has a certain amount of gas in the gut. Some people, however, are sensitive to normal amounts. They experience pain, burp excessively or pass large amounts of wind as the gas passes through the gut. Occasionally, greater than normal amounts of gas are produced. There are several situations in which this may occur, including air swallowing, dietary factors and, less commonly, bowel diseases. Changes to the diet, various medicines and products which deodorise gas may be helpful.
If you are sitting up, the air tends to go back up the oesophagus and escapes again through the mouth in the process of belching. If you are lying flat, the air tends to pass downwards causing gas in the stomach. This can result in bloating after eating and a hard, swollen tummy. The gas eventually enters the small bowel (small intestine) and escapes through the back passage (anus). People often refer to this as 'farting' or, more politely, 'passing wind'/'passing gas', or flatulence.
Gas can also be produced due to germs (bacteria) acting on partially digested food in the gut. This is more likely to happen with some foods than others. Broccoli, baked beans and Brussels sprouts are well-known culprits. The number of germs in the bowel also has an effect on the volume of gas produced. The gas that is made is mainly composed of carbon dioxide, hydrogen and methane. It may contain traces of a chemical called sulfur. This is responsible for the unpleasant smell experienced when you pass wind through the back passage.
Symptoms of trapped wind and bloating include burping excessively, passing a lot of wind from the back passage, crampy stomach pains and a bloated belly. Gas sometimes settles in the curves of the large bowel (large intestine) under the liver or spleen. This can cause pain in the upper right or upper left areas of your tummy.
Everybody has trapped wind symptoms from time to time. In most cases, this is part of the natural working of the body and the symptoms soon pass. Some people complain they are feeling bloated all the time. As mentioned above, people are occasionally sensitive to normal amounts of gas in the tummy. The reasons for this are not entirely clear.
Check the leaflet of any medicines you are taking, as wind, gas or bloating can be side-effects. Metformin (a medicine for diabetes) and lactulose (a laxative) are well known to cause these symptoms. Antacids such as magnesium trisilicate help to combat indigestion but they can increase the amount of carbon dioxide produced in the stomach, and aggravate belching.
The American wind energy industry currently supports more than 120,000 jobs, including turbine technicians and engineers, component manufacturers, project developers, financial analysts, and supply chain managers.
Jobs in the wind energy industry have a wide range of experience and education requirements. Securing a job as a wind turbine technician requires trade school experience, whereas landing a job as an electrical engineer or research scientist requires an advanced degree.
Onshore wind turbines in England and Wales (and some in Scotland) are connected to the local distribution network rather than the national transmission network, so their reported power generation is an estimate from National Grid ESO, based on weather conditions and observed transmission network demand. Offshore wind turbines (and many onshore wind turbines in Scotland) are connected to the transmission network and their power generation is measured directly.
Most data comes from the Balancing Mechanism Reporting System and is updated at five minute intervals. Embedded solar and wind data comes from National Grid ESO and is updated at half hour intervals. Emissions data comes from the Carbon Intensity project by the National Grid and the University Of Oxford Department Of Computer Science, and is updated at half hour intervals.
The wind is a natural movement of air flowing in different directions due to air pressure differences. Some days, we experience the wind in a light and refreshing manner. However, on other days, the wind comes in strong. From windswept landscapes to the breeze in our hair and leaves blowing in Autumn, the wind continues to define many life moments.
