    (CNN)Now that hurricane season is winding down, a different storm season is ramping up. Originating 93 million miles away from Earth, solar storms -- produced by the sun -- have both stunning and potentially dangerous effects here on Earth. "The sun provides us with life, with heat and light. But periodically is emits a blast of radiation that affects us here on earth and it can occur in different forms. When it occurs it can affect the technology that we rely on here on Earth," says Bill Murtagh, program coordinator at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Space Weather Prediction Center. The Space Weather Prediction Center is a 24/7 operation that is constantly staring at the sun. Using sensors on satellites and on Earth they looking for sunspots on the sun, which at times can be as much as 10 times the size of Earth. Murtagh forecasts space weather, just as meteorologists forecast the weather on Earth. When those sunspots erupt, they can send a blast of energy toward Earth known as solar storms. That's when we get the gorgeous...

    By: Shelley Bortz PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The Steelers pulled out all the stops on Sunday night to ensure fans would be in their seats for the start of their first primetime game this season. READ MORE: Allegheny County Police Investigating Human Remains Found In Penn HillsThis came after the Steelers’ home opener saw long lines and backups at the gates. In order to avoid a repeat of that, the Steelers and Zambelli Fireworks teamed up to fill the sky with fireworks an hour before kickoff to alert fans that it was time to head inside of Heinz Field. Then again, fireworks were set off a half-hour before kickoff. Similar to when a show at the theater is about to begin and the lights go dim, this was the Steelers’ unique way to make sure fans are seeing everything they paid for. “So, we don’t have bottlenecks as we try to get in the stadium,” said Tom Welsh. The fireworks served as informational as the Steelers weren’t looking for another repeat of long lines due to...
    The Brave Combat Federation light heavyweight division title has been vacant since 2018, but that doesn’t mean the division has been dormant for the past three years. In fact, it has been one of the most exciting divisions to follow for BRAVE CF fans.

His opponent, Mohamed Said Maalem, had a meteoric rise within the truly global MMA promotion and, in addition to his hard-hitting knockouts, he developed a fierce rivalry with Fakhreddine in recent months. After much anticipation and an anticlimactic last...

    Thursday on FNC’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” host Tucker Carlson warned elements on the American left were using last week’s incident at the U.S. Capitol to justify threats and fear to gain control over the country. According to Carlson, that included tying race to the incident. Transcript as follows: CARLSON: What happened at the Capitol last Wednesday was wrong. We’ve said that very clearly at the time. We’ve said it very clearly everyday sense since and we will continue to say it. We are opposed to political violence. We hate mobs. No matter who they claim to represent. Period. But that’s not all we’re against. We’re also against lying. Political propaganda is its own form of violence it. Destroys people’s minds. In the end, it enslaves them. You can judge for yourself what happened last Wednesday in Washington. Rarely has an event been filmed from more angles than that was. You know what that was, and you also know what it wasn’t. It was not an act of racism. It was not an insurrection. It wasn’t an armed invasion by a...

    President-elect Joe Biden said he's about to get access to the presidential daily briefing and that his staff is speaking to Dr. Anthony Fauci about the coronavirus pandemic after President Donald Trump finally conceded the transition has begun.  'They've been very forthcoming - offering all access,' Biden said of the federal officials in the wake of General Services Administration Chief Emily Murphy sending a letter that the transition process could formally begin. The process has gone from lying in wait to moving at warp speed as officials make up for lost time. It's been 16 days since the election was called and there's only 57 days until the inauguration.  Biden's transition team has been in contact with all sectors of the federal government in the 24 hours sent Murphy sent her missive to the president-elect.

    It started with a will-he-or-won’t-he saga, a soap opera of a coaching search that culminated with Greg Schiano returning to Rutgers after a lengthy and dramatic back-and-forth entanglement. Three months later, the novel coronavirus hit. There was no spring football. The Big Ten went to a league-only schedule, then canceled the fall football season, only to reinstate it. Finally, nearly 11 months after he reintroduced himself as Rutgers’ new football coach with a fire-and-brimstone speech, Schiano’s team will be on the field. The highly anticipated second go-around is at long last here. The “Chop” is back. “It has been a roller coaster,” Schiano said this week, as Rutgers prepared to visit Michigan State on Saturday (noon, Big Ten Network) to kick off this truncated Big Ten season. “The whole thing’s a roller coaster, but that’s the world we’re in right now. “One of the things we talked about when this thing really hit was, it’s not good enough to survive. We wanted to thrive throughout this. That was a big part of what we talked to our team about, and...
    The last time Aroldis Chapman stood on a postseason mound, he had a grin on his face after Houston’s Jose Altuve took him deep to end the ALCS and send the Yankees home. In the months that followed, the Astros had their 2017 World Series title forever tainted due to a sign-stealing scheme that some believed was still being used in some form last year. In February, Chapman called Altuve’s refusal to let his teammates rip off his shirt in celebration “suspicious,” but refused to say he believed the second baseman and the rest of the Astros were still cheating. On Tuesday, Chapman gets his first chance at playoff redemption, with the Yankees facing the Indians in Game 1 of the wild-card series at Progressive Field in Cleveland. And he insisted the disappointing ending to 2019 won’t be on his mind. “There’s always a lot of motivation to do my job,’’ Chapman said through an interpreter. “Whatever happened in the past, keep it there. We have to focus on what we have in front of us, That has to...
    (CNN)Despite objections from a majority of its residents, a South Dakota city is preparing to host what some locals say is the largest gathering of motorcycle enthusiasts in the world.Visitors have already begun trickling into the town of 7,000 for the 80th Annual City of Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. They are expected to number in the tens of thousands by the time the event -- 10 days of drag racing, music concerts and other festivities -- kicks off on Friday.The celebration -- which usually draws about 500,000 people -- will take place as the coronavirus pandemic remains out of control in cities across the country and health experts warn against large gatherings that help fuel the spread. South Dakota has reported more than 9,000 cases of the virus, among the lowest in the country. And Meade County -- home to Sturgis -- has recorded about 78 infections, according to state data. Some 60% of Sturgis residents, when surveyed, told the city they'd rather the event not proceed as scheduled this year.Read MoreBut city manager Daniel Ainslie, who expects attendance to be...
    Benedict Cumberbatch will return as Doctor Strange in the sequel titled Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness. The movie has been pushed a little, to March 2022 from November 2021, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But that doesn’t mean we are not learning new things about the upcoming superhero film every other day. Now, we might have a hint at the villain of the sequel. Chiwetel Ejiofor is returning to the film playing Baron Mordo. While for the most part of the first Doctor Strange film, Mordo was on the good side, in the final few moments he became the new antagonist. In an interview with Screen Rant, Chiwetel Ejiofor said, “We’re hoping to start pretty soon is what I can tell you. So, you know, as soon as possible. We’re all really excited to get going and to get cracking with it. I can’t wait. He’s coming on. I’m very, very excited about that. Obviously, we’ve been sort of interrupted as the whole world has been in the pandemic but hopefully, we are back on track with that and...
