Multiple solar flares are facing Earth and “strange objects” are passing near a massive sunspot CME. Sunspot AR1934 and AR 1936 possess beta gamma magnetic fields and possess the power to emit strong solar flares, according to NOAA. The space weather experts put the odds of an X-Class solar flare at one percent and the possibility of an M-Class solar flare at 25 percent. The United States is not prepared for a massive solar flare, according to statements made by a University of Colorado scientist who specializes in solar storm research. Dr. Daniel Baker and his space weather peers reportedly believe that if a major CME (coronal mass ejection) hits the Earth, “complete mayhem” will occur.

BB gun control laws in New Jersey could make the classic childhood took a thing of the past. The popular youth guns may be gathering dust on store shelves in the Garden State due the enactment of the Graves Act. The law requires BB guns to be registered and subject to the exact same laws as deadly firearms used for hunting and self-defense purposes. Parents may no longer be uttering, “You could shout your eye out, kid” when issuing safety warnings after a longed for BB gun is unwrapped on Christmas morning. The New Jersey BB gun control law could make possession of such a prized possession a felony. The holiday classic, A Christmas Story made Daisy’s Red Ryder BB gun a favorite gift for both boys and girls for decades. (via Gun Control: Graves Act Mandates BB Gun Registration)

The United Kingdom bank was reportedly the target of a distributed denial of servie (DOS) attack, according to the Mirror. A statement released by the bank maintains that the cyber warfare posed “no risk” to its customers. The cyber attack began with a multitude of deliberate internet traffic that prompted the online service offered by NatWest to fail. A spokesman for the financial institution noted in a release to both customers and the media that some appropriate action has been taken to restore activity to the affected websites.

Trans Pacific Partnership protesters caused a bit of a disturbance at a gathering hosted by Nancy Pelosi.The House Minority Leader initiated the event in order to commemorate the first ever White House “Status of Women” report. A group comprised primarily of college student activists urged Pelosi to vote against the trade deal which some are calling a “NAFTA on steroids” move. The potential deal between the United States and Pacific Rim nations has been so closely guarded that Congress has reportedly been able to garner only a few details about the agreement.The free trade deal negotiations memos recently leaked to the media have swanned alarm among economists, labor unions, and environmental groups. The TPP involves 12 different nations and could give “radical new political powers” to international corporations, restrict banking regulations, and drive up the cost of prescription medicines, if predictions by opponents are accurate.

Mandatory flu shots are infringing upon parental rights in New York City. With the support of Mayor Michael Bloomberg, the city’s Board of Health voted this month to require children between the age of six months and five to submit to flu shots if they attended preschool of licensed day care programs. Parents who oppose the flu vaccine due to potential side effects are infuriated and balking at Bloomberg’s nanny state endeavor. Parents concerned about the mandatory flu shots order in New York City often note that young children are already required to undergo multiple vaccinations and adding another “immunization cocktail” increases the possibility of an adverse reaction occurring. Some parents believe flu shots are linked to autism. About 150,000 children will be impacted. As the law is currently written, there are only limited exemptions. A child who is allergic to the vaccine could opt out, but it must be “certified by a physician licensed to practice medicine in this state.” Connecticut and New Jersey also require flu shots.

Shooting a cat with a BB gun could land you in prison with a felony charge on your record, as one Michigan man recently discovered. Stein Samuel Nowicki, 33, had had enough of a nuisance-causing, flea-ridden stray cat that snuck into both his garbage and his house – so he grabbed his BB gun and attempted to take care of the problem. He struck the stray cat down with one shot and, after disposing of it in his trash, considered the problem solved. What happened next surprised both Nowicki and hundreds of thousands of Americans around the country in the now viral story. The Michigan man had a felony charge of torturing and killing an animal levied against him and was subjected to a jury trial.

Open carry of a firearm is legal in Colorado parks, but that did not prevent the arrest of an Iraq and Afghanistan war veteran after last year who recently won a $23,000 lawsuit against the city of Colorado Springs. James Sorensen was shocked when a Colorado Springs police officer approached him and began interrogating him about openly carrying a handgun in the park. The 13-minute ordeal was captured on video and ultimately involved three officers and a sergeant. Sorensen’s Second Amendment rights were violated because none of the local law enforcement officers knew that Colorado law began allowing open carry in city parks a decade ago. When the initial Colorado Springs police officer approached Sorensen and told him to put his hands in the air, the war veteran, who had just exited a gay pride festival, replied, “Negative, sergeant.” This exchange occurred several times, leading the sergeant to inform the war veteran that he was about to get the “s**t kicked out of him.” (via Veteran Wrongly Arrested For Open Carry Wins Big Settlement | Off The Grid News)

America is not prepared for a massive solar flare, and barely dodged one in 2012 that could have ended life as we know it for weeks or months, according to a University of Colorado scientist who specializes in solar storm research. “My space weather colleagues believe that until we have an event that slams Earth and causes complete mayhem, policymakers are not going to pay attention,” Dr. Daniel Baker said. “The message we are trying to convey is that we made direct measurements of the 2012 event and saw the full consequences without going through a direct hit on our planet.” (via Solar Storm Nearly Took Out US Power Grid In 2012, Report Finds | Off The Grid News)
