D is For Danger: Speech Sounds Convey Emotions

Earth is hit every day by small bits of space dust. Slightly larger chunks burn up colorfully in the atmosphere, causing the shooting stars you see in the sky. Occasionally even bigger rocks hit our atmosphere; they are known as fireballs, because the light from them burning up is particularly bright. These tend to smack the Earth a few times a year and may produce a few fragments for rock-hunters to find.

For those who want to understand why we haven’t found any space aliens, the Fermi Paradox is as popular as cheeseburgers. First proposed by physicist Enrico Fermi in 1950, this perennial head-scratcher rests on the idea that it would take only a few tens of millions of years for an advanced civilization to colonize the Milky Way — leaving their mark on every last star system in the galaxy.

So why hasn’t some ambitious race of aliens done that? After all, the Milky Way is three times older than Earth, so they’ve had plenty of opportunity to finish the project. We should see outposts of someone’s galactic empire in every direction. Why don’t we?

As Fermi put it, “Where is everybody?”

Spectacular Solar Eruptions As Seen By the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO)

Extreme solar flares and solar eruptions captured by Nasa's Solar Dynamics Observatory.

Solar flares are large eruptions of electromagnetic radiation from the Sun lasting from minutes to hours. The sudden outburst of electromagnetic energy travels at the speed of light, therefore any effect upon the sunlit side of Earth’s exposed outer atmosphere occurs at the same time the event is observed.

Solar flares usually take place in active regions, which are areas on the Sun marked by the presence of strong magnetic fields; typically associated with sunspot groups. As these magnetic fields evolve, they can reach a point of instability and release energy in a variety of forms. These include electromagnetic radiation, which are observed as solar flares.

The Solar Dynamics Observatory is a NASA mission which has been observing the Sun since 2010. Launched on February 11, 2010, the observatory is part of the Living With a Star program.

!!! Trump claims that Canadians come into the United States, buy products, and "smuggle" them back into Canada because Canada's tariffs are so high...for example, that they buy shoes in the U.S., wear them, and "scuff 'em up" to make them look plausibly old at the border.

He’s obviously unaware that tariffs apply to companies exporting into Canada, not to Canadians (or Americans) bringing groceries and shoes across the border for personal use.

And the actual tariffs he’s been whining about are on some goods and rarely actually applied. But facts aren’t things Trump is familiar with.
