...is a practice that includes gazing at the sun for nourishment or as a spiritual practice. Looking into the sun is dangerous, and can cause solar retinopathy (damage to the eye's retina) and lead to permanent eye damage or blindness.

Unstable nations are usually the ones who supply fossil fuels; therefore, there is the constant need to become off grid and thus, become independent from this type of production.
Drugs are sometimes used to assist a sexual assault. Because of the effects of these drugs, victims may be physically helpless, unable to refuse sex, and can't remember what happened. The drugs often have no color, smell, or taste and are easily added to flavored drinks without the victim's knowledge.
Graphene has an extremely high electrical conductivity, allowing electrons to fly though it almost like photons (particles of light) through a vacuum.
anymede is the largest satellite in our solar system. It is larger than Mercury and Pluto, and three-quarters the size of Mars. If Ganymede orbited the Sun instead of orbiting Jupiter, it would easily be classified as a planet.
What is coeliac disease?
Coeliac disease (pronounced see-liac, spelled coeliac disease in other countries) is a digestive disease that damages the small intestine and interferes with absorption of nutrients from food.

Sustainable seafood represents a win-win relationship with our oceans that can endure forever. When humans consume seafood, we leave an indelible mark on the ecosystem. It is critically important for our own well-being, and that of the oceans, that we understand the impacts of our choices.
Will Solar Flares Disrupt GPS Signals in 2011?
Citing research by Cornell University and others the 10 February 2010 BBC report warns: “of probable GPS signal disruption in 2011-2012. Sat-nav receivers will be blinded for tens of minutes, or more probably a few times a year at the solar maximum”.
The Daily Telegraph on 14th of June 2010 instead discloses that senior space agency scientists believe the Earth will be hit with unprecedented levels of magnetic energy from solar flares after the Sun wakes “from a deep slumber” sometime around 2013.
The problem: an intense period of solar flares that occurs roughly every 11 years, called the solar maximum. Charged particles from flares produce intense bursts of radio noise that peak in the 1.2 and 1.6 gigahertz bands used by GPS. Usually radio noise in GPS bands is very low so receivers can pick up signals from orbiting satellites, even though GPS signals themselves are very weak. Charged particles trapped in the ionosphere can cause additional disruption. The trapped particles create wide fluctuations in the time GPS signals take to traverse the ionosphere, causing significant timing calculation errors.
Since the last solar maximum occurred roughly a decade ago, before GPS “came of age,” society has learned to rely on GPS during a period of relative solar calm. That means any disruptions that do occur over the next two years could very much be unanticipated — and unplanned for. As the solar maximum approaches, now might be a good time to reevaluate your GPS receivers’ holdover clocks. Your time can still be reliable, even when your GPS signal is not.
