Long live TV
Why that box in your living room is still relevant
By Hippo Staff news@hippopress.com

TV is dead, long live TV.

It was announced last week that climatologists in Australia recorded a 253-mile-per-hour gust during a 1996 typhoon, breaking the 1934 record of 231 miles per hour recorded at the Mount Washington Observatory. According to Mary Stampone, a University of New Hampshire climatologist, the 6,288-foot mountain still has some of the world’s worst weather.
