Frazier Allen: Where Medicare Falls Short

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – It’s never too early to start thinking and planning for retirement, especially when it comes to the top three expenses: housing, transportation and healthcare.

NASA reports Solar Storms can drain Electrical Charge from Earth’s Upper Atmosphere

 

Written by Alan Buis
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – New research on solar storms finds that they not only can cause regions of excessive electrical charge in the upper atmosphere above Earth’s poles, they also can do the exact opposite: cause regions that are nearly depleted of electrically charged particles.

The finding adds to our knowledge of how solar storms affect Earth and could possibly lead to improved radio communication and navigation systems for the Arctic.

A team of researchers from Denmark, the United States and Canada made the discovery while studying a solar storm that reached Earth on February 19th, 2014.

My Two Cents: Celebrities and Politics

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – To say it’s been a very contentious couple of years would be a major understatement.  Suffice it to say that it seems our great country is divided as bad as I can remember.  Being stationed overseas during the sixties, I was far removed from the Civil Rights movement, and the riots and demonstrations that were so prevalent. 

Now with the internet and social media, it seems that not only are we all just a “click” away from instant news, fake and otherwise, but we are also able to connect with our favorite rock stars, actors, entertainers and politicians.Hollywood Sign «Read the rest of this article»
