Sunspots Go Wild! X-Class Solar Flares are heading to Earth

A false-color composite image from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory shows a blast of activity originating from an active sunspot region at the center of the sun’s disk on Tuesday.

The sun erupted with a powerful solar flare on Tuesday, disrupting radio traffic and sending a blast of electrically charged particles our way. And there may be more blasts to come.

The X1.2-class flare was recorded by sun-observing satellites, including NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, at about 2:32 p.m. ET. X-class flares are the strongest category of solar outbursts, although X1.2 is toward the category’s low end. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Space Weather Prediction Center said the flare sparked a strong radio blackout.

For days, space weather forecasters have been bracing themselves for solar eruptions from a large active sunspot region called AR1944. This region has now turned to face Earth directly, which means strong solar flares are likely to send storms of charged particles — also known as coronal mass ejections, or CMEs — heading straight for us.

These heat maps reveal where we feel love, anger, shame & sadness on our bodies

Posted on 08 January 2014 by admin

A team of Finnish researchers have created heat maps to show how emotions effect our biochemistry by heat output throughout the body. At different stages of everyday life you may be more susceptible to EMF sources than others. We know that while sleeping the body needs to be protected from EMF’s to help repair the daily damages in the body. Now there is information to use showing that during different emotions the impact of EMF’s may have varying levels of opportunity to do more or less damage while happy or sad. This can be applied to understanding how individuals are able to combat or be negatively affected at this times of stress or joy.

Scientists have conclusively proven that love gives you the warm fuzzies and sadness makes you feel blue.

A team of Finnish researchers have created heat maps of where and how emotions are experienced on the human body. The goal of the study was to find out if there is a consistent connection, across various demographic groups and geographical regions, between what we feel and the physical sensation of that feeling.

“Even though we are often consciously aware of our current emotional state, such as anger or happiness, the mechanisms giving rise to these subjective sensations have remained unresolved. Here we used a topographical self-report tool to reveal that different emotional states are associated with topographically distinct and culturally universal bodily sensations; these sensations could underlie our conscious emotional experiences,” the findings said.

The study asked 773 participants to color bodily regions where they felt activity increasing or decreasing while viewing stimulus, such as emotional words, stories, movies, or facial expression. They were prompted with six “basic” emotions and seven “complex” emotions, as well as a neutral state.
