    A HUGE explosion erupted behind the Sun and the aftermath may be able to be viewed from Earth this week. The combustion hurled solar material into space, according to experts at spaceweather.com. 1The flare occurred this weekCredit: Getty The explosion occurred just behind the sun's southeastern limb, giving way to a” new and active” region. Solar filaments are clouds of ionized gas above the solar surface that sit between magnetic regions of opposite polarity, per Space Weather Live. That magnetism has since culminated in "a slow-moving CME", or coronal mass ejection, in the past few days. A CME is a type of solar flare or an eruption of intense high-energy radiation from the sun's surface.

    While the UK and US are only just out of the 'pandemic phase' for Covid-19, scientists are already looking ahead to the next global health crisis – and say it could be sparked by a microbe locked in a Tibetan glacier. Researchers from Lanzhou University studied 21 glaciers on the Tibetan Plateau and found evidence of 968 microbes, most of which have never been seen before. Worryingly, the team also identified more than 25 million protein-coding genes, including some that might influence the ability to cause disease. 'Ice-entrapped modern and ancient pathogenic microbes could lead to local epidemics and even pandemics,' the researchers wrote in their study, published in Nature Biotechnology. Researchers from Lanzhou University studied 21 glaciers on the Tibetan Plateau and found evidence of 968 microbes, most of which have never been seen before The researchers sequenced 883 bacterial genomes from cultivated glacier bacteria and 85 metagenomes from 21 Tibetan glaciers covering diverse habitats, including snow (bottom left map), ice (top left map) and cryoconite (top right map) The Tibetan Plateau The Tibetan Plateau is a key source of...

    Johnny Depp's snickering and seemingly irreverent behavior in court could potentially jeopardize his $50million defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard, according to legal analysts. The Pirates of the Caribbean star has won the hearts of supporters and fans on social media who seem to have been charmed by his tongue-in-cheek remarks and conduct throughout the high-profile trial.  But legal experts warn that Depp's 'smartass' comments – including joking about his drinking – could make him look 'unsympathetic' to those who will actually be deciding his fate: the jury.  The actor's laughing and joking during Heard's testimony could make him less 'likable', two top defamation lawyers in Virginia, where the case is being held, told DailyMail.com.  They also predicted that both sides could potentially lose their cases because neither has met the standard for defamation yet.  Legal experts say Johnny Depp is potentially jeopardizing his $100million defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard with his conduct in court Depp's tongue-in-cheek remarks and fits of laughter could be off-putting and paint him as 'unlikable' or 'unsympathetic' to a jury, lawyers told DailyMail.com.

    GIANT asteroids that could potentially endanger the Earth can be spotted with thanks to a system developed to see the rocks hours before impact. The Scout monitoring system, a small piece of technology the size of a shoebox, may be able to save earth from catastrophic disaster. 2 Radar from scientists monitoring 2022 EB5’s approach towards Greenland 2 Large asteroids have the potential to be catastrophic disasters Using new “Scout” monitoring technologies, scientists were able to spot an asteroid heading towards earth on March 11, and accurately predict its patterns. Scientists at NASA and beyond have created high tech machines that have the ability to warn us when deadly rocks are entering the atmosphere from space. Using these technologies, scientists were able to predict exactly what time and where the asteroid would hit earth- in this case, March 11 at 5.23pm off the coast of Greenland. And their predictions were correct within seconds. With these new ‘Scout’ monitoring technologies, scientists can be prepared for these potential disasters. Read more on NASA ROCK...
    There are calls for the Academy to strip Will Smith of his Best Actor Oscar after he walked on stage and took a swipe at comedian Chris Rock who was presenting an award on stage and make a joke about Jada Pinkett-Smith's hair. There was complete bewilderment in the Dolby Theatre in the moment after the assault with took place during the live broadcast with many people initially wondering if the entire punch was part of a stunt.  It took a few moments for the normally unflappable Rock to process. There followed colorful language from Smith which confirmed it wasn't any kind of joke at all.  Could Will Smith be stripped of his Oscar? The Academy faces pressure to respond after the King Richard star broke the Academy's Code of Conduct drawn up during Me Too Movement Less than fifteen minutes later, Smith picked up the biggest accolade of his life as he collected the Best Actor award making a tearful speech in which he attempted to link his outburst to his character in King Richard as someone who 'defended his family.'  He...
    There was once another loathsome Russian dictator called Vladimir – in this case Lenin – who is popularly believed to have said: 'There are decades where nothing happens; there are weeks where decades happen.' He didn't. The real quote is from a letter Karl Marx wrote to Friedrich Engels in 1863, in which the founder of Communism argued that 20 years were 'no more than a day where major developments […] are concerned, though these may be again succeeded by days into which 20 years are compressed'. Since Vladimir Putin ordered the invasion of Ukraine just over three weeks ago, it does feel as if decades have been compressed into days. A great many commentators have rushed to declare this is one of history's great turning points – the end of one epoch, the beginning of another.  Germany's Chancellor Olaf Scholz referred to a 'Zeitenwende' (a 'turning of the times'). 'The world after this,' he declared, 'is no longer the same as the world before.' And in some obvious ways he is undeniably right. With its 'policy for the East'...

    Alien lifeforms 'unlike anything we've ever seen' may be living in the clouds of Venus, a new study has claimed. With an atmosphere thick with carbon dioxide and a surface hot enough to melt lead, it is hard to imagine a more inhospitable world than our closest planetary neighbour. But now scientists think the planet could be becoming 'more habitable' after identifying a chemical pathway by which life could neutralise Venus' acidic environment, creating a self-sustaining, habitable pocket in the clouds.

    Students were banned from honoring the victims of 9/11 by wearing red, white and blue as a tribute at a high school football game because some people could find it 'racially insensitive'. Eastlake High School in Sammamish, Washington, canceled the theme 'at the last minute' after a complaint was made by an unnamed staffer. Pupils, who were not even born at the time of the 2001 attacks, wanted to commemorate the tragedy at the Patriots Day-themed game on the day before its 20th anniversary.

    PEOPLE who vape could be pulled over by police in the future as more laws regulating the practice arise. Although driving while vaping is certainly not illegal, authorities are encouraging people to be smart if they vape on the road to protect themselves and others. 3Organizations are warning against vaping while drivingCredit: Getty Images - Getty Some states have laws regarding visual obstructions while driving, meaning the police could pull you over if something like vapors from a vape pen are clouding your windows. Advocates advise leaving the windows rolled down if you smoke or vape in the car, according to Insurance Quotes. A few states also have laws regarding smoking while children are in the car.

    Dr. Anthony Fauci said Wednesday that while some questioned whether the FDA and CDC’s call to pause the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine rollout amid rare instances of blood clots would contribute to vaccine hesitancy, it could actually be viewed as a "positive issue," and serve as a reminder of how seriously the agencies take safety. Fauci, who was taking part in Wednesday’s COVID-19 White House briefing held hours before the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) was set to meet regarding the one-dose jab’s safety data, also mentioned that work has already begun on the ground to address hesitancy with a Zoom call involving 2,000 community leaders Tuesday night. "The fact that following the EUA, we have continued to follow very carefully any possibility of adverse events, I believe, is the other side of the coin of hesitancy," Fauci said. "It should reinforce in those individuals how we take safety so seriously, so as opposed to looking at this as a negative safety issue, it could be looked at as a positive issue, where they know that when we...

Sir Anthony Seldon, who has written biographies of Prime Ministers going back to Winston Churchill, said while “the jury is out,” history was beckoning the Prime Minister. He added: “He could very easily be one of those figures who people still in 100 years talk about as a truly historic figure who made the weather. I mean, Boris Johnson is a weather maker.” Sir Anthony, widely acknowledged to be a national authority on all matters to do with 10 Downing Street, warned that “anyone who writes off Boris Johnson is, I think, letting their prejudice take over. “Historically, he has been in charge of the country at the time of Brexit and Covid, two massive events in British history.

    The Conversation Spain The pandemic can deal a severe blow to Early Childhood Education Shutterstock / ShineTerra Early Childhood Education, like the rest of the educational stages, is being affected by Covid-19. Although boys and girls of these ages do not seem to show too many effects at the symptomatic level, they are more sensitive and susceptible than those in other later stages to suffer from conditions related to social and personal training. This stage, characterized by personal attachment, motor play, exploration for learning, the consolidation of values ​​such as sharing and helping, as well as the promotion of personal autonomy, could be seriously affected by the indirect effects of pandemic. In this sense, 42 teachers from the province of Malaga have been surveyed in a study that has not yet been published with the aim of knowing closely the state of this issue. 71.4% of them agree that the necessary variability of this educational context is greatly diminished. 62% affirm that they perceive a reduction in the margin of freedom of the students and half affirm that this situation...

    The Detroit Lions have reportedly agreed to Matthew Stafford’s request for a trade, and the Denver Broncos could be at the top of the list for potential landing spots. NFL.com reported on Saturday that Stafford told the Lions he wanted a fresh start, and the franchise has started to talk about potential trade options. The report noted that the two sides have had “open and healthy discussions” since the end of last season, and the Lions could be looking to use this year’s No. 7 overall pick to target the next franchise quarterback. While the report did not indicate whether the Lions had any potential partners in mind, it noted that there would likely be a strong market for him. Stafford has two years and $43 million remaining on his contract, which is seen as a bargain. The Broncos had already been pegged as good spot for Stafford, even before this weekend’s report that the team will be actively looking to deal him. The Draft Network noted that Denver would be a strong fit depending on what the team plans...
    Have been discovered two giant radio galaxies with the powerful MeerKAT telescope in South Africa, considered among the largest individual objects in the universe. While normal radio galaxies are quite common, only a few hundred of them have radius jets that exceed 700 kiloparsecs in size, or around 22 times the size of the Milky Way. These truly huge systems are called “giant radio galaxies.” In spite of the shortage of giant radio galaxies, the authors found two of these “cosmic beasts” in a remarkably small patch of sky, as published in Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. Dr. Jacinta Delhaize, a researcher at the University of Cape Town and the main author of the work, explains in a statement that “we found these giant radio galaxies in a sky region which is only approximately 4 times the area of ​​the full Moon. According to our current knowledge of the density of giant radio galaxies in the sky, the probability of finding two of them in this region is less than 0.0003%. This means that giant radio galaxies...

    (CBS4) — A dust storm along the border of Colorado and Kansas was big enough to be seen from space. The GOES East satellite captured imagery of the storm. The National Weather Service say the gusty north winds were in excess of 60 mph. Here are two other ways to visualize the dust from #GOESEast: Dust RGB to the left, where the dust appears dark pink, and DEBRA (Dynamic Enhancement with Background Reduction Algorithm) to the right, where the dust appears yellow. Winds are currently gusting at over 50 mph. pic.twitter.com/lw68fUhALM — NOAA Satellites (@NOAASatellites) January 15, 2021 The National Weather Service in Pueblo also shared satellite imagery of the storm. A dust storm warning remains in effect until 115 pm MST (Jan 15, 2021) across the southeast plains of CO. Gusty north winds in excess of 60 mph continues to create poor visibilities in blowing dust emanating across the plains, as the CIRA DEBRA sat product (yellow) shows. #cowx pic.twitter.com/cABbpoI4Ci — NWS Pueblo (@NWSPueblo) January 15, 2021    
    After the huge success of The Masked Singer, Fox premiered its first season of The Masked Dancer at the end of last year. The competition has a similar format to The Masked Singer. However, the celebrities underneath the masks aren’t required to sing while dancing. Actor Craig Robinson hosts the show while Ken Jeong, Paula Abdul, Brian Austin Green, and Ashley Tisdale serve as panelists. The second episode introduced viewers to the five more contestants. One in particular that stood out amongst the crowd was Zebra, who fans think might be a famous boy band member. For their first clue package, Zebra stated people haven’t seen them in a while. They were seen driving a red car and said they have fallen out of the limelight. They grew up in a rough neighborhood where there was only one kind of love, tough love. Zebra expressed “those teenagers left me aching in my heart” and there was “only one direction to go.” The president also knows their name. Zebra danced to Sergio Mendes’ “Magalehna” and gave a very energetic performance. They...
    The Masked Singer is back for a second season in the U.K. and already has the nation trying to guess who is underneath the crazy new costumes. Host Joel Dommett and panelists Davina McCall, Rita Ora, and Jonathan Ross all returned to the show. However, How to Make Love to a Woman actor Ken Jeong has been replaced by British comedian Mo Gilligan. Blob made their first appearance on Saturday night and entertained viewers with Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ catchy smash hit “Uptown Funk.” They appear to be a male who may not sing professionally. They were seemingly confident and sounded like they were having a lot of fun on the stage. According to Express, Blob’s clue about having four eyes could be implying they are someone who wears glasses. In their VT, they were seen walking around a classroom and said as a kid they wanted to be James Bond or Batman but instead became the Blob. The panel’s guesses were all over the place and went with a whole range of names — Richard Osman, Romesh Ranganathan,...
    An ex-CIA director said it was wrong to believe there is no other lifeforms outside of organisms on earth, just as the Navy unclassified videos from 2014 and 2015 showing a "Tic-Tac" shaped UFO near a Navy ship. Former Central Intelligence Agency Director John Brennan said on a podcast it was "presumptuous and arrogant" for people and governments to believe that the organisms found on earth were the only forms of life in the universe. 4Former CIA director John Brennan said it was arrogant of people to think there was not another lifeform outside earthCredit: Reuters 4The Department of Defense released a number of clips of a "tic-tac" shaped UFO in April "I think some of the phenomena we’re going to be seeing continues to be unexplained and might, in fact, be some type of phenomenon that is the result of something that we don’t yet understand," Brennan said. "And that could involve some type of activity that some might say constitutes a different form of life," he said conclusively. "Life is defined in many different ways," Brennan...

    Elon Musk's Neuralink is just one of many companies working on a brain chip and although the implants may be imminent, experts warn it comes with ethical matters.  Researchers at North Carolina University note brain-computer interface (BCI) technologies that aim to enhance cognitive abilities could question the authenticity of people's achievements, as they may be viewed as 'smart drugs.' Musk's Link chip, for example, currently focuses on helping those with medical conditions, but the billionaire envisions the implant 'addling a layer of super-intelligence to the human brain.'  Another concern that team brings to the table is the testing on animals, as most firms implant the chip into a mammal before a human – Musk demonstrated Neuralink in a pig.  Scroll down for videos  Elon Musk's Neuralink is just one of many companies working on a brain chip and although the implants may be imminent, experts warn it comes with ethical matters Two papers have recently been published by researchers at North Carolina State University that discuss the ethical issues, with a focus on how brain chips aim to boost cognitive...

    Paul Garnett felt 'incredibly embarrassed' explaining to his GP at the age of 71 that his depression was out of control. 'I felt so ashamed of myself — a man who couldn't cope,' he says, recalling the difficult months that led to the appointment with his doctor. 'Everything felt so bleak once I'd stopped working,' recalls Paul, now 73. 'I had this morbid feeling that I'd achieved nothing in my life. I was eaten up with self-loathing.' Though he'd experienced mental health problems since his 30s, Paul had always managed to continue working. 'I felt I had to be the strong one and I was able to keep my feelings buried,' says Paul, who lives in Manchester. He'd had a difficult childhood, and then his wife had suffered a series of devastating miscarriages. His GP had prescribed anti-depressants — and these had helped.

    People walk on Stranvagen in Stockholm on September 19, 2020.JONATHAN NACKSTRAND | AFP | Getty Images Sweden's chief epidemiologist has partly blamed the country's high coronavirus death toll on mild flu outbreaks in recent winters. "When many people die of the flu in the winter, fewer die in heatwaves the following summer. In this case, it was Covid-19 that caused many to die," Anders Tegnell, Sweden's chief epidemiologist told Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter earlier this week. 'What has now been seen is that the countries that have had a fairly low mortality for influenza in the last two, three years, such as Sweden, have a very high excess mortality in Covid-19," he said, according to a translation provided in The Times newspaper. "Those which had a high flu mortality rate, such as Norway, during the last two winters, have fairly low Covid mortality. The same trend has been seen in several countries. This may not be the whole explanation but part of it." Much attention has been paid to Sweden during the coronavirus pandemic because of its controversial decision to not...
    An ‘unprecedented’ number of birds have been dropping dead out of the sky at an alarming rate in New Mexico – and some experts suspect the wildfires raging across the West Coast might be to blame. The mystery first started on August 20 when hundreds of dead birds were discovered at the US Army White Sands Missile Range and White Sands National Monument, New Mexico State University Professor Martha Desmond told CNN. But what at first was believed to be an isolated incident has turned out to be a widespread problem. In the weeks that followed, a countless number of birds – believed to be in the ‘hundreds of thousands, if not millions’ range – have been found dead all over the state, including in Doña Ana County, Jemez Pueblo, Roswell and Socorro. ‘We started receiving calls a week ago on Tuesday the 8th [Sept.], and they haven’t really stopped since then from all across the state,’ New Mexico Game & Fish Department spokeswoman Tristanna Bickford told the Santa Fe New Mexican. ‘We can’t say any official cause at this...
