By George Mattathil – For each Net Learning Cluster session, have a large number of articles and web pages ready for review, so that you don’t spend time searching for material during the session.
With each web page or article ask yourself: Am I interested in reading this again?
Next week? Next month? Next Year?
Learn to arrive at this decision rapidly. If the answer is ‘No’, proceed to the next one.
This step will help improve your reading, comprehension, and decision making skills. more> http://wp.me/p4erPG-1H

First Moments of a Solar Flare in Different Wavelengths of Light
NASA – On Feb. 24, 2014, the sun emitted a significant solar flare, peaking at 7:49 p.m. EST. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), which keeps a constant watch on the sun, captured images of the event. These SDO images from 7:25 p.m. EST on Feb. 24 show the first moments of this X-class flare in different wavelengths of light — seen as the bright spot that appears on the left limb of the sun. Hot solar material can be seen hovering above the active region in the sun’s atmosphere, the corona.
Solar flares are powerful bursts of radiation, appearing as giant flashes of light in the SDO images. Harmful radiation from a flare cannot pass through Earth’s atmosphere to physically affect humans on the ground, however — when intense enough — they can disturb the atmosphere in the layer where GPS and communications signals travel.
