Balayage is a French technique for highlighting the hair in which the dye is painted to create a natural-looking effect. The goal is to create soft, subtle highlights that make your hair look like it's been kissed by the sun.

While Balayage is the technique of painting the hair, Ombre focuses on the style of the hair. It is the transition from a lighter shade to a darker shade. Typically, Ombres work best for brunettes, but the style can is suitable for blondes too. To achieve the effect of an Ombre, there must be a smooth transition between colors. While the Ombre is a beautiful look, you'll need to work with a professional to get the best results.

FARMVILLE – What’s the best way to gear up for a rough-and-tumble Big South men’s basketball schedule? For the Lancers, the answer is to battle through a challenging non-conference slate.

The Longwood men are set to do that, as Griff Aldrich unveiled the team’s 2022-23 non-conference schedule.

The 12-game non-conference slate out of a possible 13 games features a mix of high profile matchups from 10 different conferences, including SEC stalwart Alabama and American contender Wichita State in addition to regional matchups with George Mason and Virginia Military Institute.

A seasoned Longwood squad that returns four starters, seven players that played more than 400 minutes and nearly 75 percent of its total minutes will attack that non-conference schedule that features six home games and six road tests. The reigning Big South champions will face their longest road stretch during a four-game swing in December. Longwood’s longest homestand is a five-game stretch in November.

Longwood opens the season with trips to Alabama on Nov. 7 and George Mason on Nov. 11 before coming back home to play five straight in Farmville. Following their home opener against Pfeiffer on Nov. 13, the Lancers will host a multi-team event for the second straight year.

This year, Virginia Military Institute, Fairleigh Dickinson University and Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville will head to Willett Hall for three days, Nov. 18-20. The classic features six games in that three-day span, as every team plays each other in a round robin for a weekend full of basketball.

In December, the Lancers play four straight away from home for their longest road trip of the season, with trips to Delaware State, Wichita State, Saint Francis-Brooklyn and The Citadel coming over a two-week span from Dec. 3 to Dec. 17. The team then hosts South Carolina State prior to Christmas on Dec. 20.

From that point on, the Lancers will dive into an 18-game conference slate.

Monday, Nov. 7 at Alabama in Tuscaloosa, Alabama

Friday, Nov. 11at George Mason in Fairfax

Sunday, Nov. 13 vs. Pfeiffer in Farmville

Friday, Nov. 18 vs. Virginia Military Institute in Farmville

Saturday, Nov. 19 vs. Fairleigh Dickinson in Farmville

Sunday, Nov. 20 vs. Southern Illinois-Edwardsville in Farmville

Tuesday, Nov. 29 vs. Mary Baldwin in Farmville

Saturday, Dec. 3 at Delaware State in Dover, Delaware

Saturday, Dec. 10 at Wichita State in Wichita, Kansas

Tuesday, Dec. 13 at Saint Francis in Brooklyn, New York

Saturday, Dec. 17 at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina

Tuesday, Dec. 20 vs. South Carolina State in Farmville

Warming oceans fuel earlier Atlantic hurricane seasons, study finds

For years, meteorologists have advertised June 1 as the historical start to Atlantic hurricane season — but a new paper finds tropical storms are more frequently forming before that date as the ocean warms.The study published in Nature Communications found there’s both an earlier start date and earlier first U.S. landfall each year....

For years, meteorologists have advertised June 1 as the historical start to Atlantic hurricane season — but a new paper finds tropical storms are more frequently forming before that date as the ocean warms.

The study published in Nature Communications found there’s both an earlier start date and earlier first U.S. landfall each year. It comes as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is considering moving the official start date of the season from June 1 to May 15, which would reflect the observation of early storms and would also match the start of the eastern Pacific hurricane season.

The start date is one of several attributes of hurricanes that appear to be changing in the face of warming oceans and human-caused climate change. Strong hurricanes are also wandering farther north, and there’s been an uptick in instances of rapid intensification — leading to stronger, wetter and more destructive storms.

“This was a timely topic,” said the paper’s lead author, Ryan Truchelut, a meteorologist who founded the consulting firm WeatherTiger. “There had not been a peer-reviewed paper on the onset of hurricane season for about eight years now.”

Since 2012, Truchelut said there have been at least seven instances of the National Hurricane Center issuing tropical storm watches and warnings before the official start date of the season. Atlantic hurricane season has historically peaked around mid-September on average, and activity ordinarily simmers down by the end of November. An average season contains about 14 named storms, with seven hurricanes and three major hurricanes.

Especially since the 2010s, Truchelut said the “the preponderance of unusual and preseason activity that the Atlantic saw … stands out to me.”

The study focused on observational data — not forward simulations or model outputs. Using statistical methods, the group sifted through noise in the data to draw conclusions about when storms were forming and striking land.

It’s important to note that the satellite era — when a complete view of every nook and cranny of the Atlantic has been available — only dawned in 1970. Before that, knowledge about the position and intensity of tropical cyclones largely came from ship reports and buoy observations. In earlier years in particular, that often made for possible limitations, gaps or inconsistencies in the historical record.

It’s improbable that any landfalling U.S. storms were missed, however, given the dense population of the U.S. and Gulf coastlines. That makes the “two day per decade” figure pertaining to the shifting first landfall date more reliable.

The authors point to warming sea surface temperatures, which can be closely linked to human activity, as playing a role in the expanded season. In particular, they found ocean temperatures during the spring months contribute to jump-starting a season, ruling out other factors that affect storm formation.

“The developing environment is more favorable for [storm] genesis mainly because of sea surface temperature,” Truchelut said. “We’re not seeing big changes in shear, relative humidity or upper-level temperatures.”

“We do not attempt to attribute what portion of the observed 0.75 degree Celsius warming we’ve seen in May since the late 70s could be climate change versus what’s driven by natural cycles or longer-term oscillations,” he noted. “But certainly there’s some in the mix, both with climate change and natural cycles.”

This trend is likely to continue, he said, something that’s reflected in modeling by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

While 2022′s first named storm in the Atlantic (Alex) didn’t form until June 5, after the season’s official start date, the previous seven years featured early-season storms:

The study concluded that warming oceans in the future could continue to advance the start date of Atlantic storms by about a half-day to one day per year.

James Kossin, a hurricane researcher at the Climate Service, who was not involved in the study, wrote in an email that this study builds on previous work connecting Atlantic tropical-storm season length to ocean temperatures. But he also wrote that there is not strong evidence to support additional lengthening in the future.

“[T]here is no clear reason to expect the trend to continue,” he wrote. In a blog post at RealClimate last year, he and co-authors argued that even as the oceans warms, the atmosphere may respond in ways to counter early season storm formation in the decades ahead.
