4th of July geomagnetic stormSpaceweather - July 5, 2015
During the late hours of July 4th, a solar wind stream hit Earth's magnetic field, sparking a moderately-strong (G2-class) geomagnetic storm. Fireworks were exploding across much of North America when the storm reach its peak. In Cape Cod, Massachusetts, auroras appeared alongside the pyrotechnics. The storm is subsiding now, but it might not be over. NOAA forecasters estimate a 55% chance of polar geomagnetic storms on July 5th as the solar wind continues to blow. Aurora alerts: text or voice.
Zeta Oph: Runaway StarAPOD - July 5, 2015
Explanation: Like a ship plowing through cosmic seas, runaway star Zeta Ophiuchi produces the arcing interstellar bow wave or bow shock seen in this stunning infrared portrait. In the false-color view, bluish Zeta Oph, a star about 20 times more massive than the Sun, lies near the center of the frame, moving toward the left at 24 kilometers per second. Its strong stellar wind precedes it, compressing and heating the dusty interstellar material and shaping the curved shock front. Around it are clouds of relatively undisturbed material. What set this star in motion? Zeta Oph was likely once a member of a binary star system, its companion star was more massive and hence shorter lived. When the companion exploded as a supernova catastrophically losing mass, Zeta Oph was flung out of the system. About 460 light-years away, Zeta Oph is 65,000 times more luminous than the Sun and would be one of the brighter stars in the sky if it weren't surrounded by obscuring dust. The image spans about 1.5 degrees or 12 light-years at the estimated distance of Zeta Ophiuchi.

Scientists are often accused of not being open enough to paranormal phenomena. As scientists they should be open to them, it is said. But it wouldn't be very open-minded if we wouldn't try to fit reported phenomena logically into the web of established physical phenomena and the laws of nature. The laws of physics, biology, and psychology point all to the most plausible explanation of them all: paranormal phenomena are in the eye of the beholder. They happen between human ears, not outside of them.
Ernst Mayr Google Videos
Ernst Mayr was one of the 20th century's leading evolutionary biologists. He was also a renowned, tropical explorer, ornithologist, historian of science, and naturalist. His work contributed to the conceptual revolution that led to the modern evolutionary synthesis of Mendelian genetics, systematics, and Darwinian evolution, and to the development of the biological species concept.
evolution was a strictly vertical phenomenon.
