Dr. Gabor Maté: When the Body Says No: Understanding the Stress-Disease Connection 1 of 2

The Vancouver-based Dr. Gabor Maté argues that too many doctors seem to have forgotten what was once a commonplace assumptionthat emotions are deeply implicated in both the development of illness and in the restoration of health. Based on medical studies and his own experience with chronically ill patients at the Palliative Care Unit at Vancouver Hospital, where he was the Medical Coordinator for seven years, Dr. Gabor Mate makes the case that there are important links between the mind and the immune system. He found that stress and individual emotional makeup play critical roles in an array of diseases.

Venus and Jupiter will be visible near each other in skies around the world tomorrow and Wednesday in a rare conjunction event

The planets Jupiter and Venus will appear 22 minutes of arc apart, which is a measurement used in astronomy to track the size and positions of objects in the night sky.

For comparison, the full moon is 30 minutes of arc across.

A small telescope or a pair of binoculars will easily resolve the two planets, and show them in the same field of view.

Venus is now just over 56 million miles (90 million km) from Earth and Jupiter about 10 times further at 560 million miles (900 million km).

But Jupiter is also 11.8 times bigger than Venus, which means that the two planets will appear as a similar size.

The sun has unleashed 3 separate solar storms that have combined to smash into Earth’s atmosphere

Forecasters say the storm will continue tonight, causing the huge aurora to be visible from the Earth’s north. It should be seen in much of Europe, as long as there are no clouds, and may even be visible as far south as the Canadian border with the US.

But the phenomenon could cause problems with electricity supplies here.

The US Government’s Space Weather Prediction Center (SWCP) said: ‘Aurora watchers in North America, especially northern states of the US, should stay alert.  

‘The geomagnetic storm that began on 22 June has reached G4 (Severe) levels once again as of 0513 UTC (0113 EDT) on 23 June. 

‘Solar wind conditions remain highly favourable for continued Strong Geomagnetic storming, with both fast solar wind and strong magnetic fields.’ 

‘This is the very early stages of an event that will play out over many hours, with SWPC forecasting continuing storm level intensities into tomorrow. 

June 22nd 2015 Full Halo CME, Storm Warning: A coronal mass ejection (CME) is heading directly for Earth

It left the sun during the early hours of June 21st, and is expected to sweep up one or two lesser CMEs already en route, before it reaches Earth sometime on June 22nd. Click to view a movie of the “full-halo” CME

NOAA forecasters estimate a 90% chance of polar geomagnetic storms when the CME arrives. This doesn’t mean that a major space weather event is in the offing. The storm could be mild. It all depends on how the magnetic field of the CME connects to the magnetic field of Earth at the time of impact. According to NOAA, there’s only a 10% chance of nothing happening, so stay tuned.
