July seven 2009 Extravaganza – Prediction = Real
I was here to click on the button, but Mom Nature did it!

Important UPDATE JULY four 2009
CLASS B FLARES Started July four with a B7 Class Flare @ 04:35 UT
CLASS C FLARES commenced July 5 with a C1 Class Flare @ 07:10 UT
CLASS C FLARES began July six with a B8 Class Flare @ 17:05 UT
July 7 ultimately ….. CLASS A3.three@sixteen:18 UT it is gone for the moment… but view the Magnetosphere now 🙂 CLASS A8.3@17:00 UT – finish of the story CLASS B1@23:44 UT

SUNSPOT ALERT: The most energetic sunspot of the yr so far is emerging in the sun’s southern hemisphere: film. Sunspot 1024 has at least a dozen person dark cores and it is crackling with B-class solar flares. This morning, amateur astronomer David Tyler caught 1 of the flares in action from his backyard solar observatory in England: The magnetic polarity of sunspot 1024 identifies it as a member of new Solar Cycle 24. Its fast emergence on July 3rd and 4th continues the recent (few-month) trend of intensifying new-cycle activity. This sunspot is the best providing nevertheless from the young solar cycle. Monitoring is encouraged. spaceweather.com/

My prediction (based on CC infos) on June 25th: This picture will celebrate the Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) of our Sun on July seven 2009…
Fasten your seat belt, you have been warned. nota bene pilottage prediction 🙂

People speculations are structured and elaborated right here in the comments of the Might and June CC have a seem here: www.cropcircleconnector.com/2009/june2009.html

No dread, and Adore to all my flickr friends!

A quite clever comment on the cropcircle phenomena by a brilliant scientist:
Albert Einstein once remarked that for the human there is no a lot more potent feeling than that of the ‘mysterious.’ In fact, he was convinced this feeling for the mysterious was the cradle for all performs of science, art, and religion. In light of Einstein’s conviction, 1 may possibly ask: &quotWhat is the opposite of a feeling for the mysterious?&quot The opposite would be the sense that one understands it all. The opposite would be the feeling that a single is in possession of a program that explains all the phenomena in the universe. For such a person, the universe loses its appeal for it gets to be some thing we don’t genuinely require to pay out attention to. The universe gets to be an exemplification of a theory that one particular has already understood. No true surprises are possible, only the functioning out of a logical system by way of time. When a feeling for the mysterious is misplaced, a single turn into s vulnerable to the a variety of fundamentalisms plaguing our planet, every a single with its passionate certainty that it has all the solutions whilst every single other method is just superstition.

In moments of anxiety and breakdown, there is a potent drive in us to get solutions and explanations. Surely in our very own time when we are dismantling ecosystems all around the planet and deconstructing the secure climate on which our civilization is primarily based, we come to feel a deep want to know what is genuine and what is very good and how to proceed. This need can turn out to be so great we are liable to latch onto 1 of these simplistic pseudo-explanations just to quell the emotions of worry and doom surfacing in us. &quotWhat on Earth?&quot does not supply any such simplistic explanations. This restraint is 1 of its biggest achievements. By insisting that the Crop Circles are past any easy explanation, &quotWhat on Earth?&quot allows us to make peace with residing in the ambiguity of not knowing. This capability to reside with ambiguity is related to a sense for the mysterious and with each other these two may be the most essential aspects for deep creativity to get location. At the very least, we need to understand that an embrace of ambiguity is a type of humility when confronted by the magnificent complexity of nature.

One of the excellent rewards of viewing &quotWhat on Earth?&quot is the feeling a single can get of wading into the mysterious. By way of its balanced and wide-open method to the phenomena of Crop Circles, the film has the energy to ease us out of some of the prior certainties we may have had. &quotWhat on Earth?&quot explores and celebrates the truth of the existence of these types. And as we are guided into this reflection, we discover ourselves contemplating new suggestions about the nature of our universe. We start to imagine that items may possibly be distinct than we considered. We may even start to release ourselves from some of the exhausted explanations lodged into our minds by the media. But most important of all, as we view the movie we may possibly even commence to come to feel stunned by the straightforward reality that right here we are in the midst of this mind-boggling mystery, the universe.&quot

tags The initial step is to examine the big difference among science fiction and fantasy. It has been broadly argued that they are one particular and the very same. However, one particular could say that in science fiction, a single is dealing with the realm of possibility or plausible science, items that could be possible in daily life as we know it. In fantasy, anything at all goes! What ever 1 can dream up, this kind of as animals that speak English, items that we generally believe of as not possible but make for excellent reading through, can be deemed fantasy.

There is no correct or common way to write a story. What performs for a single does not imply it will operate for all. There are however, a lot of pieces of very good data and or suggestions that that can help a individual in their endeavors to develop a time and spot that transport us from our each day life.

one.Of program you can keep it easy and begin creating and see how your characters produce and several writers have produced entire novels in this vogue. In a sense you are encountering the story a lot like your readers in that you may not know at the time of creating which way the story might flip. The downside of this style of creating can be that you could end up creating hundreds of pages that might or may possibly not finish up in the final draft due to the reality there might not be a clear path for your story and it can adjust numerous times over. There is absolutely nothing at all wrong with creating this way as all writing is a studying encounter and gets better in excess of time.

2.If you are the sort of particular person that needs far more framework, you can relatively organize your story. It may possibly not be as difficult as you consider. You can begin with

a)Compose a summary or overview about your story. When you are acquiring prepared to publish a novel you will currently have an notion of what the story is about. Put it down on paper! It is important to get that phase of getting it out of your head and onto paper or in your laptop. This permits you to examine it from an exterior stage of see at any later on date. A lot of instances when we have an notion and do not publish it down we typically find we can not very don’t forget the full specifics of our suggestions. The overview of the story can in the end be used as the summary to describe the contents of the novel. The wording for your summary may possibly alter above the program of your creating and this is to be anticipated because the story will be evolving as you go.
b)The story need to have its heroes and sinister characters and naming them properly is of importance. The names you pick for your characters must suit the story.
c)Make a decision what the function is of the primary characters, what are they striving to achieve, and how do the opposing forces or characters interfere with the primary purpose.
d)The story would not be as interesting if it is reduce and dry or predictable. You may possibly want to introduce set backs for your major character. While he is trying to do excellent or the correct factor, he may possibly be confronted with factors gone awry or large set backs on the principal goal. This keeps the reader interested and routing for his or her good results.
e)Compose a feasible ending for your story. You could want to write many possible endings.
f)Now that you have a full outline of the story with characters in place, you can compose chapter by chapter. Really feel free to make as a lot of alterations as you want to develop the most influence for your story.

No matter whether you are creating science fiction or fantasy, we sometimes like to humanize some of the characters such as an animal that dresses or speaks like us or the alien that sympathizes with human type. Some of the most profitable novels or stories are wildly out there but nonetheless relatable.

A excellent way to obtain encounter and confidence as a writer is to enter a creating contest. Some of the greater contests will be judged by knowledgeable properly identified writers that typically have workshops or have their personal internet sites with excellent creating suggestions. Coming into creating contests can be a great way to break into this competitive discipline and get oneself identified.

What ever technique appeals to you, do that, and preserve writing, creating and far more creating!

Take pleasure in the journey!

  3. i like the ‘what on earth’ speak – does justice to ………………….
    awesome image – there is light in this cosmos somewhere!!!!!!!!!!

  4. We have a new important cropcircle today from June 25th… checkt it out with the link up.

    Similar to the jellyfish CC of May 29th, Roundway Hill 10th of May, the dragonfly of Yatesbury June 3rd, and the Phoenix of June the 12th, this CC seems to suggest solar activity and associated effect on the Earth’s magnetosphere. Each crop circle seems to suggest the sun and the shape of the magnetosphere.

    After the jellyfish of May 29th, the sun became more active after a relative period of quiet (absence of sunspots, flares, Coronal mass ejections). On the 31st of May the sun started to emit low level flares up until June 3rd. It was during this time that a French plane fell out of the sky in a location known to be present a magnetic anomaly in the earth’s magnetic field.

    After the dragonfly of Yatesbury June 4th, flares occurred again on June 6, and June 22, all having a substantial effect on the earth’s magnetosphere both at the time of the flares and for a few days after (as solar radiation can take up to 4 days to reach the Earth, depending on class/type of flare/ejection).

    Each circle seems to have pre-empted solar activity and it’s impact on the Earth’s magnetic field. Everyone’s interpretation of the CC is personal and unique, but for myself I am convinced that the makers of the CC have knowledge of future solar activity and how that activity may effect the Earth.

    In this CC the largest circle may indicate the sun with a coronal hole currently present on the top. I am hesitant to make predictions, but each following circle may indicate a day, with the sixth day (July 1 – six days after CC appearance) indicating greater flux in the earth’s magnetosphere. The power line over the CC hints at our electronics on Earth being effected.

    Never the less, even if this prediction proves inaccurate, a careful look at the data will reveal increased solar activity and resultant magnetic flux in the Earth’s magnetic field, so it is very interesting that the CC of late may be displaying the sun and magnetosphere of the Earth.

  5. I realize you speak of ‘the sun’s southern hemisphere’ but what will be visable for the earth’s southern hemisphere …This is so interesting…

  14. Immagine caratterizzata da un concerto di colori con elementi suggestivi e fantastici ottenuti dall’insieme di forme ed elementi della splendida creatività elaborata ed evidenziata con un sapiente utilizzo di opportuni software.

    Nella composizione si rilevano sia un eccellente bilanciamento cromatico nonché una brillante nitidezza che hanno gratificato l’occhio dello spettatore di una ottimizzazione della visualizzazione generale con una eccellente risoluzione globale.

    Il trattamento in postproduzione, molto appropriato, ha permesso di saturare ulteriormente l’aspetto cromatico generale, già ottimo, mediante una composizione con un forte impatto caratteriale.

    L’inquadratura e la focalizzazione dell’insieme degli elementi ne hanno molto beneficiato esaltando particolari magnifici e irreali.

    Inoltre si nota il ben curato il bilanciamento del bianco con la bella restituzione dei toni.
    Complimenti per la gradevolissima foto.

La base de una fotografia es el dialogo que se origina entre el fotografo y el objeto, persona, situación…etc que nos disponemos a fotografiar…en este dialogo entran muchas accciones a funcionar…..tecnica ….sentimientos….a quien??? Para quien?????? A que????? para que????? Este intimo dialogo.termina siempre en una poesia….una poesia en forma de imagen….pero dentro de ella se encuentra todo lo que quise decir ….lo que senti…es capad de hacer sentir , lo que queria hacer sentir y lo que yo senti y lo que quisiera que sentirian…..es una conjuncion con el otro…. una fotografia jamas puede dejar indiferente pues seria el fracaso del fotografo…. .es casi un canto al amor….a la generosidad….tu foto me conto todo lo que he escrito…de tecnica que te voy ha decir tiene toda la necesaria para que ante ella se sienta uno asi….acertaste en tu disparo pero mas acertaste en tu dialogo hiciste de una instantanea una poesia….ademas bien contada con toda la luz…..encuadre…y composición …………… felicitaciones

  52. CLASS B FLARES Started July 4 with a B7 Class Flare @ 04:15 UT

    ok shut your computer july 6 and 7…………by pilottage

    SUNSPOT ALERT: The most active sunspot of the year so far is emerging in the sun’s southern hemisphere: movie. Sunspot 1024 has at least a dozen individual dark cores and it is crackling with B-class solar flares. This morning, amateur astronomer David Tyler caught one of the flares in action from his backyard solar observatory in England: The magnetic polarity of sunspot 1024 identifies it as a member of new Solar Cycle 24. Its rapid emergence on July 3rd and 4th continues the recent (few-month) trend of intensifying new-cycle activity. This sunspot is the best offering yet from the young solar cycle. Monitoring is encouraged.

El soporte fotográfico hasta hace no muchos años ha sido el papel….los negativos de cristal…y después ….con las cámaras compactas comenzaron los rollos que los de nuestra generación los hemos conocido…..pero claro esta aun siendo este proceso muy importante….básico, pues de otra forma no existiría la fotografía…..lo que buscamos es la imagen obtenida con todo el complejo proceso de luz y química….ahora con la era digital han cambiado algunas cosas …pero básicamente sigue siendo lo mismo….pero aun siendo también esta muy importante ……lo que en realidad buscamos en una fotografía son emociones….recuerdos…que quedaron plasmados en ese pedazo de papel….y esto es verdaderamente lo importúnate…y este también es un proceso complejo ….pues el fotógrafo que realizo la fotografía pensó en hacerla…mas o menos como quería que le saldría….puso en ella todo su conocimiento….su arte fotográfico…hizo una gran expresión de generosidad…pues laas fotografias se realizan para compartir…pues si no es asi para que?????…..en ella se juntan las verdaderas emociones …el primer viaje ….el primer amor…..un día muy especial….el amigo que se fue……la mete reología del momento…..el humor de los presentes en fin y además todo esto con una codificación muy especial….pues solo los que vivieron el momento podrán encontrar en esa imagen las emociones mas intimas.…..en fin como veis en una fotografía hay muchos megas …gigas….de información …de emociones………pues amigo mío todo eso has logrado para mi con tu fotografía……se podrá decir que esta bien encuadrada….que buscaste el mejor momento…..que la composición es magnifica…..y así un montón de tecnicismos….pero lo mas importante en tu fotografía es la voluntad de hacerla ….la generosidad de dejárnosla disfrutar ….y todos aquellos valores que tu sabes… los ves….y yo los encuentro…en la parte que me corresponde …. MUCHAS GRACIAS …………..felicitaciones
