A mysterious 'Rosetta Stone' explosion reveals a missing link behind solar eruptions

The failed portion of a solar eruption on March 13, 2016. NASA/Solar Dynamics Observatory Scientists recently examined a solar eruption from 2016 that seemed to defy categorization.

"In today’s political and media culture, trolling is the shortest, simplest path to a level of attention you’d never get any other way. His fiery Twitter account is just the capstone on the gradual reinvention of J.D. Vance.... When Hillbilly Elegy was released in 2016, it was taken as a kind of Rosetta Stone to a world many in the left had never encountered, and Vance became a rare bipartisan figure that liberals could at once praise, pity and understand.... But...Vance became a Trump suppor...

TechCrunch has written about the entire journey, and considering the unusual circumstances of the public offering pa...

Clippers’ secret weapon: French

LOS ANGELES — Serge Ibaka’s first Zoom press conference as a Clipper in November ended with questions in Spanish and French; a reminder that the Clippers’ floor-stretching big man is a multilingual talent. To hear his fellow French speaker on the team tell it, that’s something of a secret weapon. France’s Nicolas Batum said he and Ibaka make it a habit to speak French to each other when they’re both on the court, something opponents seem to find confounding. “Every game. Literally, every game we...
