RIP Bill Paxton (1955-2017) - The great actor from many blockbusters of the 1980′s and 1990′s, known for his extensive partnership with James Cameron films (The Terminator, Aliens, True Lies and Titanic) and HBO’s Big Love has died today age 61 after complications from surgery. A true versatile actor who could do both comedy and drama, hero or villain, Paxton appeared in more than 90 projects and among them are: Stripes (1981), Commando (1985), Weird Science (1985) as the bully Chet, Pass the Ammo (1988), Next of Kin (1989), Predator 2 (1990), One False Move (1992), Trespass (1992), Tombstone (1993), Apollo 13 (1995), The Last Supper (1995), Twister (1996), A Bright Shining Lie (1998), A Simple Plan (1998), Mighty Joe Young (1998), U-571 (2001), Hatfields & McCoys (2012), Edge of Tomorrow (2014), Nightcrawler (2015), and the upcoming The Circle (2017). On TV, he is best remembered as Bill Henrickson in Big Love (2006-2011), which earned him 3 Golden Globe nominations; as John Garrett in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and most recently in Training Day (2017). He also directed two films: the tense Frailty (2001), in which he also starred and The Greatest Game Ever Played (2005). One of the finest people in the business who’ll be truly missed.

The tempest prognosticator, also known as the leech barometer, is a 19th-century invention by George Merryweather in which leeches are used in a barometer. The twelve leeches are kept in small bottles inside the device; when they become agitated by an approaching storm they attempt to climb out of the bottles and trigger a small hammer which strikes a bell. The likelihood of a storm is indicated by the number of times the bell is struck.
