(Best Syndication News) - NASA has observed a very large solar flare at the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) at 1:41 a.m. EST on June 7, 2011. Scientists have calculated the time for the solar energy to reach Earth’s magnetic field between the late hours of June 8 or June 9. The solar flare could cause geomagnetic storms at Earth that last longer.

Solar storms can last only a few minutes to several hours but the affects of geomagnetic storms can linger in the Earth’s magnetosphere and atmosphere for days to weeks.
Those up north may get to see enhanced auroras putting on a show with the extra solar energy arriving from the solar flare.

SDO said that this solar flare was a little unique because there were several places that had temperatures that were less than 80,000 K. There was a large eruption of cool gas.
NASA says that solar flares are the largest explosive occurrences in our solar system. The flare causes a huge explosion of radiation. Solar flares can last from minutes to hours and they are seen from the light it releases. Solar flares also cause electrons, protons, and heavier particles to accelerate how fast they travel.

San Bernarndino County District Map

(Best Syndication News) - The Board of Supervisors has announced a website at www.sbcounty.gov/redistrict to inform San Bernardino County residents about the redistricting. At this website, residents can also make suggestions for how the map should be redrawn.

The reason for the redistricting is because of the latest US Census data. The districts should have around the same population in each district. The US Census completed in 2010, found the county had 2,035,210 residents. The Board of Supervisors said therefore, each district should have around 407,042 residents. Based on the US Census data there are discrepancies and the district borders need to be changed.

(Best Syndication News) At first glance the billboard may look like an advertisement for a radio talk show, but they are more than that. According to the 89-year old radio talk show host, Harold Camping, the end of days are near.

Camping’s latest mathematical prediction is that the world will end on May 21 2011. He and his followers claim that as many as 200 million people will disappear. The San Francisco based group previously predicted the rapture would occur on September 4 1994.

“We are almost there”, Camping says, and the Bible provides a lot of information about the “timeline of history”. The Bible speaks of the vigilant as “watchmen” (Ezekiel 33:2-9), in that they are able to warn the unsaved. The goal is to help others become “saved”.
