Killexams : Powerful Bombs and Solar Snake Appear on Surface of Sun

The sun has had an active few months, developing Ellerman bombs and solar snakes on its surface.

Sunspot AR3140 was recently seen exploding its "bombs, and the European Space Agency's (ESA) Solar Orbiter probe spotted a cylinder of gases snaking through the sun's magnetic field in September.

Ellerman bombs occur in areas of the sun's surface with strong magnetic fields. Named after physicist Ferdinand Ellerman, who studied them in the 1900s, the bombs are magnetic explosions caused by opposite polarities colliding. While the explosions are one-millionth as powerful as normal solar flares, they are still immensely energetic, releasing as much energy as 100,000 World War II atomic bombs, according to

"These events are due to a combination of intense magnetic activity and pressure within the outer parts of the sun," Christopher Conselice, an astronomy professor at the University of Manchester, told Newsweek.

"The Ellerman bombs have been known about for over a century, but their origin is still being debated. We observe these as bright features on the surface of the sun, but their ultimate cause is still unknown," Conselice said.

Solar flares and coronal mass ejections (CMEs)—high-energy releases of electromagnetic radiation and solar plasma, respectively—are also associated with areas of higher activity on the sun, so Ellerman bombs can represent a warning bell for more intense solar events.

This image of the sun was taken by the Solar Dynamics Observatory, a NASA mission that has been observing the star since 2010. Beginning in September, solar events like Ellerman bombs and solar snakes have been seen on the sun's surface. NASA/SDO

"They are connected to other solar activity and can indicate that more intense solar flares and CMEs will occur," Conselice said. "The sun is a very active and ever-changing star, and we still don't know how to explain all of the physics behind the activity we see."

The solar snake that was spotted on September 5 by the Solar Orbiter is also an ejection of solar plasma, but it is suspended in a unique way by the sun's magnetic field.

"You're getting plasma flowing from one side to the other, but the magnetic field is really twisted. So you're getting this change in direction because we're looking down on a twisted structure," David Long, an astronomer at the Mullard Space Science Laboratory at University College London, said in an ESA statement.

In the video, the extremely hot plasma—up to 1 million degrees Celsius—is snaking along a long filament of the sun's magnetic field. The ESA has estimated that the snake was traveling at around 170 kilometers per second, or roughly 380,000 mph.

The area that the snake emerged from later erupted in a CME, sending huge amounts of solar plasma into space. This suggests that solar snakes may also be a precursor to larger and more significant solar activities.

These solar events come as the sun inches toward its solar maximum, when it experiences more solar flares and CMEs, increasing in activity as it does. The solar activity follows approximately 11-year cycles, during the middle of which the sun reaches the solar maximum, when this activity is a lot higher than during its minimum.

The last solar minimum occurred in 2019, so our sun is ahead of schedule, being more active than it normally is at this stage in the cycle.

Killexams : Veterans Day Committee Application Approved

Mark Beauregard

A public hearing for a new liquor license was held prior to the selectmen’s November 7 meeting. Karen Shaunesey applied for a new liquor license for the Village Public House located at 55 Carry Road in Oquossoc. There were no concerns from the public or the selectmen and the license was approved under the Consent portion of the agenda. The Village Public House will be located at the former Gingerbread Restaurant and is scheduled to open in early December.

Greg Whalen, the chairman of the Veteran’s Memorial Committee, made a presentation to the selectmen under the New Business portion of the agenda. The committee created an engraving application and were seeking the selectmen’s approval of the application, so that they can reach out to the public. Whalen reported that no new names have been added to the Veterans Memorial since 1993, and that some names were missed prior to that.

To have a veteran’s name engraved on the Veterans Memorial Park wall, an individual must be retired or deceased and have been Honorably Discharged or received a General Discharge under Honorable conditions. Additionally, the veteran must have been or currently is a Rangeley resident, graduated from Rangeley Lakes Regional School/Rangeley High School or attended RLRS/Rangeley High School at least 3 years.

Names to be placed on the monument can be submitted to the committee by contacting Rangeley Town Clerk, Marti Belt, who is the point person for the committee.

The selectmen unanimously supported, approved the engraving application, and thanked Mr. Whalen and his committee members for their efforts. The committee will hold a joint meeting with the Park Commission on November 17 at 5pm to discuss the scope of work for improvements at the monument.

An event permit was approved for the annual Giving Tree Lighting. The Giving Tree is located between the Chamber of Commerce building in the town park and Main Street. This event will take place on November 26 from 3:30pm to 5:30 pm.

The town was awarded two safety grants from Maine Municipal Association. One grant applied for by Fire Chief Michael Bacon was in the amount of $2,693.32 for the exclusive purchase of traffic cones and vests. The other grant was secured by Assistant Town Manager Tracie Lavoie in the amount of $3,000.00 to help offset the cost of new exterior handrails at the town office.

The town manager received notice from Waste Management that waste handling fees were increasing effective January 1, 2023. There will be a $3.00 per ton increase for Construction and Demolition Debris and a $1.00 per ton increase for Municipal Solid Waste.

The selectmen authorized the town manager to fill a position at the highway department vacated by a heavy equipment operator.

The attorney for the previous owner of property located at 35 Hotel Rd. attended the meeting via Zoom. The town owns property as a result of foreclosure. The town had been working to help the previous owner regain ownership of the property, but he declined to accept language in the agreement that would protect the towns interest. The selectmen then voted to sell the property by sealed bid. The attorney informed the selectmen that his client has now agreed to the provisions in the agreement the town wanted. The selectmen did not vote to change their position and the property will be sold by sealed bid.

The selectmen voted to proceed with the Oquossoc Village Planning Study and authorized the town manager to sign the Contract for a State Funded Project.

A demo survey provided by Wright-Pierce Engineering as part of the Oquossoc Park Master Plan was reviewed by the selectmen. The survey questions will solicit public input for a vision of the Oquossoc Park.

The selectmen received a draft Short Term Rental ordinance (Ch.34), from the Ordinance Committee for their review. A public hearing is scheduled for 5pm on November 21 to discuss this proposed ordinance. Public attendance and input are welcome.

The selectmen received input from Valerie Zapolsky concerning the draft sign ordinance contained in the proposed revisions to the Rangeley Zoning Ordinance (Ch.38). Public discussion of Zapolsky’s input will occur on November 16 during the Board of Selectmen’s next scheduled Ch. 38 workshop.

The selectmen supported the town managers request to appoint deputy CEO Karl Kolze and CEO Jim Duggan to the Comprehensive Plan Review and Implementation Committee. The committee also includes Christopher Farmer and Cyndy Egan. Town Manager Joe Roach will participate administratively but not a as a member. The committee hopes to start meeting this month. An important goal of this committee will be to ensure that the Comprehensive Plan and Ch.38 are compatible.

The next regularly scheduled selectmen’s meeting is November 21st.

Friday November 11 is Veterans Day. Thank a veteran for helping preserve our opportunity to appreciate our common values and the freedoms we embrace.

“A democracy is healthiest when the public is informed about the activities of leaders of industry and occupants of public office.” -Melvin Melcher

CIM-UK which is the largest marketing body in the world, has now replaced the current CIM stage 3 (Postgraduate Diploma) with the new Chartered Postgraduate Diploma Level which consists of two phases, similar to the current Postgraduate Diploma. Therefore, this would be the last chance for students who had registered under the old syllabus, to complete stage 3 under direct guidance from the expert panel of lectures at Next School of Business.

In the new Syllabus, the assessment criteria will be changed, which will be mainly assignment and work based projects, except one subject. Under the new qualification, phase one will comprise of Emerging Themes, Analysis and Decision, Marketing Leadership and Planning and Managing Corporate Reputation.

Now students have the option of completing Phase 2 to achieve Chartered Marketer status by completing a work based research project .This Phase will take between 12-18 months to complete.
The Phase 1 and Phase 2 together is now called the Chartered Postgraduate Diploma in Marketing. However level 2 is optional for students.

The Chartered Postgraduate Diploma at Next will be delivered by a lecture panel whose credentials are unmatched. They are of CIM-UK Chartered Marketers, MBA qualified and trained by CIM in UK, possess 10 years of lecturing experience in CIM and above all, they are practising marketers. As the current assessment structure of CIM places significant emphasis on practical application of theory in various real life corporate situations, students gain a distinctive advantage when they learn from industry practitioners. In addition to the expert panel, students are provided with a comprehensive assignment guideline along with a full time student counsellor for further support and guidance.

Killexams : Sun Transit in Scorpio - November 2022

Sun in Scorpio sign November 2022

The Sun is the king of the planetdom, the royal presence, and the significator of the father in a Kundli. This November 16th, 2022, Sun is transiting the sign of Scorpio/ the Vrishchik rasi, according to Vedic (sidereal) calculations. The Sun transits each sign of the zodiac in the mid-calendar month and marks the beginning of a month that belongs to a rasi. In many Indian states, the day is considered to be auspicious, almost like the beginning of a new year. Hence cleaning the house, special poojas, and prayers are done to mark the auspiciousness of the transit. The change of the Sun from one rasi to the other is called sankrama, and it happens on a Sankranthi. The following weekdays also gain significance, like the first Monday, the first Tuesday, and so on.

According to Mantreshwara, 'The Sun is the significator of the person's collection of copper and gold, And of father, patience, valor, victory in war, one's soul (Atman), auspiciousness, happiness, prowess, power, light, any work relating to Lord Shiva, travels in forests and mountains, havans or yajnas, Inclinations for work, temple, acuteness, enthusiasm.'

Let us see how Sun's transit in Scorpio zodiac sign sheds light on each rasi.

Aries (Mesha)

Sun being the natural lord of the fifth, the transit of Sun in Scorpio, the eighth house, indicates a 'not so rosy time' for romance and having fun! Lack of confidence and vigor may also show up during this time. Pay heed to your wife's words, as you could avert any loss with her support.

Taurus (Vrishabha)

Fights with your spouse are indicated as the Sun transit in Scorpio is in your seventh rasi. There could be health issues for them as well. As Venus transit is also happening in Scorpio for the whole time Sun is going to stay in the rasi, marital bliss is going to be burnt up by the Sun's heat. But for the unmarried folks, this transit of the Sun could bring marriage. Buying new vehicles or getting institutional support in finance are also indicated.

Gemini (Mithuna)

The Sun being the third house lord of Gemini, now hops into the sixth house. Serious care must be given to one's health. Your hard work will pay off. You will receive gains from the government. You will succeed in competitive situations like exams. You could also have minor tiffs with younger siblings. If you are looking for an opportunity to go abroad, this could be it!

Cancer (Karka)

For Cancer natives, the sun transit in Vrishchik rasi is in their fifth house of poorva janma punya, education, kids, and love. The Sun being the natural karaka of the second house for Cancer, you have to be careful about your speech, especially if you are in a romantic relationship. Ego would get in the way of reconciliation. Students will get a greater push toward their studies. Money flow is also indicated by the eleventh aspect of the Sun. You would place your family first in everything.

Leo ( Simha )

The Sun transit in Scorpio is in its fourth house, which is the house of domestic happiness and mother. Sun is the lord of Leo, and when Sun transits Scorpio, there is a possibility of some domestic squabbles and issues related to the health of the mother that needs to be addressed. Gains through property-related business are seen in the Sun in Scorpio. Your work environment will improve, and your social status will become better.

Virgo (Kanya)

Sun transits the third house of Vrishchik rasi, wherein the Sun is the natural karaka of the twelfth house for Virgo. You will do hard work and reverse your luck and regain what you have lost. You may go on a pilgrimage. Invest your money carefully. You will shine well in businesses, but you have to be careful about impulsive buying.

Libra (Thula)

Sun is the natural eleventh house lord of Libra. The Sun transit in Scorpio in the second house brings financial gains to Libra. This is the best time to make investments and start new businesses. As the natural second lord, Mars is in the eighth during the transit; you should take care of your fixed assets.

Scorpio (Vrishchik)

The natural lord of the tenth house, the Sun transits Scorpio to bring in positiveness to work. You will have the drive to work harder, and you will get rewarded for the same. You could get benefits from the government as well. You could feel dominance towards your spouse, do keep that in check. You could benefit from alliances with foreigners. Health-wise, you would be susceptible to migraines, blood pressure, or fever.

Sagittarius (Dhanus)

The natural ninth house lord falls in the twelfth house during this transit of the Sun in Scorpio. You should be careful in making decisions. Your father's well-being must be taken care of. If you are a student, there could be impediments to your progress.

Capricorn (Makara)

The natural lord of the eight now hops onto your eleventh house with this transit in Vrishchik rasi. You will have a sudden increase in the flow of income. This transit will be rewarding, Capricorn folks! And you will become more popular among your friends and in networks. You would share secrets with your friends.

Aquarius (Kumbh)

The lord of the seventh house will visit your tenth house during this sun transit in Scorpio. It is a lucky time to climb up the career ladder. You will deal with your workplace duties efficiently and its ease. You could look into the well-being of your mother, and you will experience domestic bliss.

Pisces (Meena)

Your father's health could suffer during this transit of the Sun, where your sixth lord is transiting your ninth house. A lot of hard work will be expected from you. If you are a philanthropist, you will gain accolades for your dedication and selflessness in service.

Those whose practicing was favorable can let their hair down!! Others can follow remedies to propitiate Sun, like fasting on Sundays; donating red clothes, food, wheat, and red sandalwood on Sundays. Avoiding salt is also a remedy recommended. Reciting Aditya Hrudaya stotra, which was advised to Lord Ram on the battlefield in his war against the formidable Ravan, is also a recommended remedy. But do bear in mind that all prayers and rituals will get to fruition only when done with dedication and when your actions do not cause harm to others!

Killexams : How students at Mumbai`s premier art school are hoping for its better future © Provided by Mid-Day

At the Sir JJ School of Art, students have abandoned their classrooms since the last five days. Spilling over into the empty spaces of the campus under the peak afternoon sun, occupying the garden patches and muddy pathways, they are engaged in the process of creation. On one end, someone is building an installation of a running tap with handwritten protest notes appearing to “gush out”—give us an answer, where are the teachers, we need a roof to live (they appeal in Marathi). Ahead, at the mouth of the entrance, hundreds of students are seated on a mat, making sketches, and doing stencil art. Those standing are adding brush strokes to the canvas placed on their easels—all painting a young woman, who has volunteered to be the subject of their portrait, as she sits languidly on a stool. They work in silence; no blaring speakers to galvanise the large group of students, or music to keep them engaged and entertained.

Art is how they express themselves. It’s also their language of protest, Santosh Sanjay Parkar, a student of interior design, and student general secretary, tells us. The students have, for the last few days, been protesting for better infrastructure including loom machines and modern tech, and permanent faculty. “It’s the basic right of every student,” they argue.

Students of Sir JJ School of Art during a meeting with Chandrakant Patil, Minister of Higher and Technical Education, on Thursday. Pic/Getty Images

The school, comprising 400 students, is the fountainhead of art schools in India. And yet, students claim, administrative apathy has led to its slow deterioration. “This is the third protest in 15 years,” says Amol Hirawadekar, an alumnus of JJ, who was part of protests in 2009 and 2014, while he was pursuing his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees. “Unfortunately, almost all the problems that plagued us then, continue to trouble students today as well.” “Even at the time, we didn’t have permanent teachers, appointed through MPSC [Maharashtra Public Service Commission] exams. These posts are lying vacant for years.” Parkar says students from across Maharashtra are enrolled at this college. “Many of them do not have financial backing, and are reliant on the facilities given by the state government, like the hostels. We used to have a hostel in Kalanagar, Bandra East, but that has been shut for eight years.” Ongoing renovation work has also left many classrooms and toilets out of bounds. Last Tuesday, the students announced that they would withdraw from participating at the Rajya Kala Pradarshan or the state art exhibition, to be held in January 2023, in Pune—the institute is known to bag several awards here.

However, some faculty members and former alumni fear that the protest has shifted everyone’s focus from the ambitious De-Novo Deemed to be University status for Sir JJ School of Art, Architecture and Design, which has been in the works for six years, and has already seen several roadblocks. It could just be the solution to all the problems that the premier art school is snowed under. According to a source, protests at such a crucial juncture where the faculty is a hair’s breadth away from rescuing JJ and reviving its dwindling presence in the world of art, could throw cold water on the efforts. Environment artist Shilpa Joglekar, who graduated from JJ School of Art in 1989, says, “Frankly speaking, I don’t know which straw has broken the camel’s back,” while referring to the students and their decision to protest. “Yes, there are issues with the institute—and some of these existed while I was there too. But if the students were taken into confidence and explained to that ‘we are heading for a very big change,’ which would help them in the near future, then perhaps they would have held on,” she thinks.

In his just released book, Citizen Gallery: The Gandhys of Chemould and the Birth of Modern Art in Bombay (Speaking Tiger Books), author Jerry Pinto recounts the story of the birth of Sir Jamsetjee Jeejeebhoy School of Art, one of the two most important art institutions of the city, along with The Bombay Art Society.

It began with the Great Exhibition or the Crystal Palace Exhibition of 1851 in Hyde Park, London, which was meant to be a global display of the arts and crafts. “Those Indians who did get to England to see The Great Exhibition of 1851 were impressed by the vastness of the human enterprise and how much the ‘poor, bare, forked animal’ was getting done in various parts of the world. Amongst them was Sir Jamsetjee Jeejeebhoy, a great Bombay merchant and philanthropist,” writes Pinto in the book, “Sir Jamsetjee came back with a dream. He wrote a letter to the Directors of the East India Company in May 1853, offering a donation of a hundred thousand rupees to start an Art Instruction School. For its part, the company had to provide the land and bring masters out from England. This seemed to have found favour with the directors. Such art workers could serve the Company’s larger interests which were strictly commercial. Instead of just sending out raw material and unfinished products, perhaps they thought they might be able to sell the world some finished goods as well. Of this instinct was born the terms Bombay pottery and Bombay woodwork.”

The Sir Jamsetjee Jeejeebhoy School of Art, Pinto writes, began with drawing classes at the Elphinstone Institution commencing in March 1857. “Sir Jamsetjee stepped in and offered his own home on Abdul Rahman Street. Three ateliers were established: decorative painting, sculpture and artistic metalwork [wrought iron work]. The ateliers were headed by three English masters: Mr Higgins, John Griffiths and Lockwood Kipling [the father of Rudyard Kipling who would supply us that memorable phrase, ‘The White Man’s Burden’ and would call us ‘half devil and half child’].”

Sir Jamsetjee Jeejeebhoy’s son also known as Jamsetjee took forward this “dream” after his father’s demise in 1859. An alumnus, privy to its history, shares that soon after, a campus was given—“a heavily wooded site just outside the city walls”—for the purpose of building a school for “art and industry”.

At the beginning, all the arts were taught in the same school, but by the early 20th century, the schools broke into different departments. Sir JJ College of Architecture was the first department to be created in 1913, followed by Sir JJ Institute of Applied Arts in 1935. “We know that the campus has changed its shape over the course of time—very old maps put the existing Sir JJ Institute of Applied Arts outside the campus walls,” he shares.

This rich inheritance, unfortunately, say alumni, has eroded with time due to neglect. “We have been suffering from not having autonomy,” a source at JJ shared. “And it’s not just academics [outdated syllabus], but administrative and financial too. Getting anything done, requires multiple approvals and in a government institution, this takes a lot of time. So, while salaries are coming on time, and students’ fees are subsidised, both of which are wonderful things, you have restrictions as to how much you can spend, and for what purpose.” For instance, if you want to make changes to the premises, you need to rely on the public works department (PWD). “Even the process of recruitment of teachers is tedious. MPSC test has become compulsory to hire permanent staff, and that process can take years. Not having new staff infusing the college with freshness on a regular basis, has definitely been one of the reasons why JJ is slacking.”

The idea for complete autonomy was first mooted in February 2017, with a GR Issued by the Higher and Technical Education, Government of Maharashtra, permitting the three schools to start the process of preparing a proposal for the same. A proposal was presented to the University of Mumbai in August that same year. However, to begin the process with the University Grants Commission, the schools, owned by State Government and controlled by its Ministry, first needed a permanent affiliation with the University of Mumbai. This was only granted in 2019. That same year, Saurabh Vijay, who was then Secretary for Higher and Technical Education, Government of Maharashtra, suggested that the schools apply for De-Novo Deemed to be University status, and an NOC for the same was granted in August that year. “De-Novo is a status given to an institution with a legacy, with a clear mandate that it will start new courses that are contemporary and different from anything out there. The focus has to be on teaching and research in unique and emerging areas of knowledge. It’s a version of autonomy, which fundamentally means that we would have a governing body within the institution made up of some of the best names of the industry, as well as the faculty.

Together, they would decide on everything from academics, administration, recruitment and finances... things that we would otherwise keep going back to the government for. The funds would come from the government in the initial years, but eventually, we would plan to put an effective system in place. The alumni could, for instance, become effective partners. At present, many of them want to supply money and support us, but we have no means to take it,” says the source, adding, that the De-Novo  tag was a great move, to empower the college to become independent. “It would allow us to collaborate with the city at large, because we consider ourselves a metropolitan institution. Remember, all things that happen in the city affect us, and historically, we have affected the city as well.”

On March 17, 2020, just a week before the lockdown, an online application for the De-Novo tag was made to the University Grants Commission, along with an application processing fee of R15 lakh by the Maharashtra government, which was the sponsoring body. Despite COVID-19 putting the brakes on the process, the UGC approved the proposal and it was sent for further approval to the Ministry of Education.

But the state government threw a spanner in the works in March this year, when it set up a committee to explore the possibility of making JJ an affiliating university. “This would have defeated everything we hoped to do to protect the legacy of this institute.” The source highlighted the danger of mediocre institutes exploiting the Sir JJ name for their own benefit. “If JJ became an affiliating university, believe me, the faculty would have no time to teach. They would only be doing clerical, administrative work. This is the time to think about JJ’s growth,” the source said, adding, “The world has gone forward, but JJ in some sense has been left behind.”

The Bombay Progressive Artists’ Group formed in 1947 by FN Souza, SH Raza, MF Husain, KH Ara, HA Gade, and SK Bakre, and which comprised primarily of former JJ alumni, through their new styles, sensibilities, philosophies and practices evoked a new modern language of art. Pinto in his book Citizen Gallery, quotes Souza one of the group’s founding fathers, who said, “I had begun to notice that the JJ School of Art turned out an awful number of bad artists, year after year. And the Bombay Art Society showed awful crap in its Annual Exhibitions which comprised the amateur efforts of some memsahibs in India who were pampered by British imperialism. Hence their pretty-pretty paintings together with the work of several artists coming out of the art school, exhibited once a year in the Art Society had no directions, no goal, no inspiration, no energy... It then occurred to me to form a group to supply ourselves an incentive. Ganging up in a collective ego is stronger than single ego. It is easier for a mob to carry out a lynching; and in this case, we found it necessary to lynch the kind of art inculcated by the JJ School of Art and exhibited in the Bombay Art Society.’”

Referring to this, the source says, “This is an unfortunate criticism against JJ... we don’t want to be in this situation, and we no longer want to rely on our glorious past. JJ has to move forward.”

In April this year, soon after the government’s proposal to consider making JJ a state university, the alumni came together to launch an online petition to grant it the De-Novo Deemed to be University status. “We... reject and condemn this unexpected and unfortunate intervention, in a process already nearing completion,” they wrote in their petition, which has been signed by 5,359 signatories.

Contemporary artist Rajesh Pullarwar, who exhibits globally, was among the alumni who extended his support to the cause. Pullarwar got his bachelor’s and master’s degree from the institute in 2000 and 2002 respectively. “If you want to revive the institute, you need to rehaul the system, and that’s what everyone needs to realise.” He feels that many students who graduate from JJ today aren’t equipped to face the challenges in their respective industries, because the syllabus is not upgraded. “Also, if you don’t have permanent teachers, students won’t have good mentors. Teachers on contract come and go,” Pullarwar asserts. 

A faculty member, on condition of anonymity, shared that at present, De-Novo is a concern for many protesting students, because “they are worried about the fee hike”, but ex-alumnus Amol Hirawadekar, who has joined the protesting students, is quick to clarify that this not on their agenda right now. “We have doubts over the fee structure of course, but we have no reason to oppose it yet.” Parkar, who is student general secretary, echoes his sentiment. The source, however, told mid-day that JJ wouldn’t hike students’ fees, as assumed, because the government will be supporting the institute for a while. “The transition is going to be seamless, and the rights of the existing students will be protected.”  


Professor Vishwanath Sable, dean of Sir JJ School of Art, and the director of the Directorate of Art, Maharashtra government, is confident that JJ will see things through. “The students are experiencing confusion about the De-Novo status. The state has established a task force, which other deans and I are part of, and the process is on to get all approvals. We are going to clarify their doubts, at the right time.” He says that for JJ to get De-Novo, they will need to fulfil all criteria, which includes creating good infrastructure and filling up vacant posts. At present, they have 44 posts, of which seven are permanent. “But we have hired adjunct and clock-hour basis faculty... and have filled 36 posts already. I understand their concerns. We are having a meeting with the Ministry of Higher and Technical Education, and will address their issues.”

On Thursday, Chandrakant Patil, Minister of Higher and Technical Education had a meeting with the protesting students. In a press note shared later by the students, Patil is said to have promised to build a new hostel in three years, and until then, make temporary hostel arrangements for students. Patil appealed to students to withdraw the agitation, assuring to address all their other demands within the next month or so. The De-Novo status wasn’t discussed at this meeting. The students called off their protest soon after. 

When contacted, Santosh Kshirsagar, dean, Sir JJ Institute of Applied Art, who is also part of the committee that prepared the proposal for the De-Novo status, refused to comment on the ongoing issue, but is confident about the blueprint they’ve prepared for JJ’s future: “De-Novo is the solution to ensure smooth functioning of the three pillars of any institution which is academics, administration and finance.”

Killexams : Just in time for Halloween, the sun looks like a jack-o’-lantern

It looks like many things to many people. The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from the classic 80s movie “Ghostbusters.” A ScrubDaddy sponge. An emoji. And a jack-o’-lantern, just in time for Halloween. Last week, NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory captured an image of the sun’s surface in an apparent smile. “Today, NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory caught the sun ‘smiling.’ Seen in ultraviolet light, these dark patches on the sun are known as coronal holes and are regions where fast solar wind gushes out into space,” NASA wrote in a tweet.

The patches making up the face in the image are coronal holes—cooler sections of the sun’s outer layer. This layer is usually around 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit. The coronal holes show areas of high magnetic-field activity that steadily release solar wind. These cosmic gusts are a flow of protons, electrons, and other particles that travel through space.

While this image is a visual treat, the activity behind it might prove to be more of a trick back here on Earth. The holes might be a solar storm that could generate a beautiful aurora borealis in Earth’s more northern latitudes or wreak havoc on the planet’s telecommunication systems. Solar storms like these can become troublesome when the particles make it to Earth’s atmosphere, where television and radio antennae can pick up their signals. A big enough solar storm can cause power outages and damage electrical grids. The Carrington Event in 1859 was one of the most significant solar storms in recorded history and caused fires at telegraph stations and even auroras in tropical regions. With significantly more telecommunications in the 21st Century, a similar event could cause severe problems to the technology we rely on daily.

One more recent spooky solar storm was the appropriately named Halloween Storms of 2003. With minimal warning, three giant sunspot groups formed on the sun’s surface by October 26, 2003. The largest of these spots was 13 times bigger than Earth’s, and 17 major solar flares erupted from the sun. “The storms affected over half of the Earth-orbiting spacecraft, intermittently disrupting satellite TV and radio services and damaging a Japanese scientific satellite beyond repair,” according to a National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration post. “The solar activity also sent several deep-space missions into safe mode or complete shutdown and destroyed the Martian Radiation Environment Experiment aboard NASA’s Mars Odyssey mission. At the height of the storms, astronauts aboard the International Space Station had to take cover from the high radiation levels, which had only happened twice before in the mission’s history.”

According to some researchers, the planet is also long overdue for a massive solar event. “Scientists expect that to happen on average, with a couple percent probability, every year, and we’ve just dodged all these magnetic bullets for so long,” University of California at San Diego physics professor Brian Keating told The Washington Post. “So it could be really scary, and the consequences could be much more dramatic, especially in our technology-dependent current society. There could be something on our way for Halloween night after all. Pretty spooky, but hopefully not too spooky.”

The Solar Dynamics Observatory was first launched in 2010 with a mission to investigate how solar activity is created and drives space weather. The spacecraft measures the sun’s atmosphere, magnetic field, energy output, and the sun’s steamy interior. But the Solar Dynamics Observatory is hardly the only NASA entity working hard to bring spooky images back to Earth this Halloween—the Hubble Telescope also captured a spooky “cosmic keyhole” that looks a bit like a portal into another dimension on October 28.
