SpaceWeather: Radiation Clouds At Aviation Altitudes

A new study published in the peer-reviewed journal Space Weather reports the discovery of radiation “clouds” at aviation altitudes. When airplanes fly through these clouds, dose rates of cosmic radiation normally absorbed by air travelers can double or more.

“We have flown radiation sensors onboard 264 research flights at altitudes as high as 17.3 km (56,700 ft) from 2013 to 2017,” says Kent Tobiska, lead author of the paper and PI of the NASA-supported program Automated Radiation Measurements for Aerospace Safety (ARMAS). “On at least six occasions, our sensors have recorded surges in ionizing radiation that we interpret as analogous to localized clouds.”

The fact that air travelers absorb radiation is not news.  Researchers have long known that cosmic rays crashing into Earth’s atmosphere create a spray of secondary particles such as neutrons, protons, electrons, X-rays and gamma-rays that penetrate aircraft.  100,000 mile frequent flyers absorb as much radiation as 20 chest X-rays—and even a single flight across the USA can expose a traveler to more radiation than a dental X-ray.

Conventional wisdom says that dose rates should vary smoothly with latitude and longitude and the height of the aircraft.  Any changes as a plane navigates airspace should be gradual.  Tobiska and colleagues have found something quite different, however: Sometimes dose rates skyrocket for no apparent reason.

“We were quite surprised to see this,” says Tobiska.

All of the surges they observed occurred at relatively high latitudes, well above 50 degrees in both hemispheres. One example offered in their paper is typical: On Oct 3, 2015, an NSF/NCAR research aircraft took off from southern Chile and flew south to measure the thickness of the Antarctic ice shelf.  Onboard, the ARMAS flight module recorded a 2x increase in ionizing radiation for about 30 minutes while the plane flew 11 km (36,000 feet) over the Antarctic Peninsula.  No solar storm was in progress.  The plane did not abruptly change direction or altitude.  Nevertheless, the ambient radiation environment changed sharply. Similar episodes have occurred off the coast of Washington state.

Healthy Eating Habit: If you do not know About it yet, Here is The Powerbowl – Food in a Bowl

Posted in 2017, food, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 20, 2017 by theboldcorsicanflame
powerball

The preparation is quite strict, although you can put just about anything you want. So if you do not know yet, you are presented this very tasty food bowl.

The principle of powerbowl? Take a bowl and put some food in it. Well what, in the idea is that? Okay, more seriously, it involves using fairly accurate amounts of food. The goal is that the bowl contains all the right nutrients your body needs.

The perfect powerbowl would apparently consist of this, according to the Daily Mail:

-35% of vegetables

-25% cereals

-15% lean protein

-10% of sauces

-30% extra (eg macadamia nuts, hazelnuts, pine nuts, etc.)

You can also do it in fruity version. The 35% of vegetables will be replaced by fruit. Ideally, there should be 3 different vegetables (or fruits) in your bowl. The powerbowl (fruity) would be a full of energy to start the day. And above all, it would avoid the cravings of 10:30 that some know very well.

Good ingredients to add to your shopping list if you want to recreate your own at home include quinoa, beetroot, sweet potato, seeds, nuts, chicken, black beans and avocado (of course).

Australia: Melbourne Car Driven by an Islamist Hits Pedestrians. Happening EVERYWHERE in the World!

Posted in 2017 with tags , , , , , , , on January 20, 2017 by theboldcorsicanflame

This video was originally uploaded to twitter shortly after the attack and depicts a man describing the crazy attacker shouting “allahu akbar” shortly before running down over 20 people and killing at least 3.

VIdeo was later censored on twitter by media, police and government in Victoria and Australia to cover up the possibility of this incident being a terror attack, as our current leftist prime minister Malcom Turnbull and leftist premier Daniel Andrews, care more about the welfare of islam rather than the Australian people.

The Victorian government has claimed this attack is not terror related however evidence is building that the attacker was indeed islamic as indicated by the witness in this video.

Very Graphic Video: Morocco “Pilgrims” at the Muslim Feast of Al Mawlid, Savagely killing a Camel with an ax before Eating it Raw!

“Very very very Shocking”, to say the least! Images of a rare savagery were posted on social networks showing n jumping on the beast still agonizing to devour it raw.

Many Internet users have denounced the practice of these “pilgrims” who, according to them, celebrate rituals dating from another era, marked by the seal of “witchcraft”.

“Such practices no longer have a place in a modern Morocco that evolves at all levels ...” (?!) add these Internet users, calling on the Moroccan authorities to combat this phenomenon of another age. Coming from muslim, not really surprised as they torture the animals they eat…..

These images date back to the day of the Muslim Feast of Al Mawlid, one of the most important annual celebrations of the Moulay Brahim mausoleum, with traditional rituals lasting a week, attended by visitors from different regions of Morocco And from abroad. The 7th day marks the end of these festivities with the “sacrifice” of a young camel, in the presence of the notables of the region.

Disgusting, revolting and who wants to go to Morocco to witness the agony of a camel slaughtered and eaten raw while still alive suffering. May them be doomed!

Momondo: 67 people from all over the world take a DNA test. The Result is Mindblowing

Momondo – The DNA Journey

It’s easy to think there are more things dividing us than uniting us. But we actually have much more in common with other nationalities than you’d think.

They asked 67 people from all over the world to take a DNA test, and it turns out they have much more in common with other nationalities than they would ever have thought.

Let’s Open Our World is an invitation to travel across boundaries, embrace our differences and open our world.

At momondo they believe that everybody should be able to travel the world, to meet other people, and experience other cultures and religions.

Travel opens our minds: when we experience something different, we begin to see things differently. Share this video, and help us spread the word – and open our world.
