2011 - The Secret Lives of Solar Flares - September 19th, 2011: "[....] 'We’ve just learned that some flares are many times stronger than previously thought,' says University of Colorado physicist Tom Woods who led the research team. 'Solar flares were already the biggest explosions in the solar system—and this discovery makes them even bigger.' [NP] NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), launched in February 2010, made the finding: About 1 in 7 flares experience an “aftershock.” About ninety minutes after the flare dies down, it springs to life again, producing an extra surge of extreme ultraviolet radiation. [NP] 'We call it the "late phase flare," ' says Woods. 'The energy in the late phase can exceed the energy of the primary flare by as much as a factor of four.' [NP] What causes the late phase? Solar flares happen when the magnetic fields of sunspots erupt—a process called “magnetic reconnection.” The late phase is thought to result when some of the sunspot’s magnetic loops re-form. A diagram prepared by team member Rachel Hock of the University of Colorado shows how it works. [NP] The extra energy from the late phase can have a big effect on Earth. Extreme ultraviolet wavelengths are particularly good at heating and ionizing Earth’s upper atmosphere. When our planet’s atmosphere is heated by extreme UV radiation, it puffs up, accelerating the decay of low-orbiting satellites. Furthermore, the ionizing action of extreme UV can bend radio signals and disrupt the normal operation of GPS. [NP] SDO was able to make the discovery because of its unique ability to monitor the sun’s extreme UV output in high resolution nearly 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. With that kind of scrutiny, it’s tough to keep a secret--even one as old as this. [NP] The original research of Woods et al may be found in the Oct. 1, 2011, issue of the Astrophysical Journal."

2011 - U.S., EU pushing for talks between Israel and Palestinians - September 19th, 2011: "[....] The Palestinians are frustrated by their inability to win from Israel concessions such as a freeze on settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. And with violence out of the question and bilateral talks with Israel failing, they see the U.N. as the only viable route for progress in the short term. [...] The irony is that only 12 months ago, president Barack Obama said he wanted the U.N. to be welcoming Palestine as its newest member this year. But talks broke down long ago, and the U.S. is in the unenviable position of leading the opposition to something it actually supports, fearful a Palestinian victory might cause a debilitating rift with Israel and set talks back further. [NP] American officials were working to secure additional opposition to recognition, officials said. Without nine affirmative votes in the 15-member Council, the Palestinian resolution would fail and Washington wouldn't have to act alone. [...] Even with a loss in the Security Council, the Palestinians were expected to take their case for recognition to the General Assembly, where they enjoy widespread support and the U.S. cannot block it. [NP] A nod from the General Assembly could give the Palestinians access to international judicial bodies such as the International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court. [NP] The Israelis fear such courts would target them unfairly, which is something that the Jewish state's ambassador to the United States, Michael Oren, said had been outlined by the Palestinians themselves. Israel's [< typo] is concerned about further isolation and mistrustful of the United Nations."
