Is a Pole Shift underway as we speak ? A geomagnetic reversal could have dire effects on our high tech lifestyles, temporarily knocking us back into the dark ages, time to get ready to be cave men again. If worst the case scenarios eventuates.
The British Geological Survey has reported as part of the ‘South Atlantic Anomaly and South Georgia Magnetic Observatory’ report that there may be some signs of the Earths magnetic pole shifting, a geomagnetic reversal.
The magnetic poles of the Earth are part of the magnetic field that surrounds the earth. This field is generated by the spinning core of the earth just like an electric motor and the poles are just the same as the poles on a bar magnet. While the earths North and South pole do wander around a bit, if you were to make timed observations of a compass you would see slight movements in where the compass points, a pole reversal refers to the switching of North and South magnetic poles, in effect the compass needle would swing 180 degrees. Once the poles have swapped place things continue on as normal, it makes surprisingly little difference which is actually north and south.

Canadian watch company Allerta is finally taking orders for its ultra cool computer watch the InPulse. Were talking the modern equivalent to the calculator watch here people so no rolling of your eyes.
The watch is sleek, stylish and could knock someone out if you swing it hard enough. Coming in all of two styles, chrome edge and solid black both looks are chunky, not weapons grade chunky but chunky just the same.
At the moment it works best with Blackberry equipment, Android and iPhone links have been mention but nothing solid yet. For Blackberry users it shows notifications, incoming call numbers, appointments even when your being an annoying Blackberry doosh.

With the solar maximum of 2012 building up the sun is putting on quite a show for us all. The sun, our all gas jolly giant is due to reach the peak of its solar flare activity in 2013. The peak called Solar Maximum is generating a lot of interest. Scientist have calibrated instruments, created classifications, the rest of us just have to sit back and enjoy the wild ride. We actually know a lot about how the flares happen we just can’t do much about it.
Solar flares – also called Mass Coronal Ejection – consist mainly of super excited protons and electrons, heated to millions of degrees before spewing out of the sun. The individual particles don’t have enough mass to do any direct damage, no bullets from the sun, but collectively there is so much energy being sent out in the flare that they can be very dangerous. At most risk are astronauts and soon to join them space tourists. When travelling outside the Earths magnetic field the radiation – especially X-rays and Gamma rays – is extremely dangerous to living organisms, doing damage to each cell in your body. Currently no space craft are able to completely protect its crew from this radiation. Ironically Solar Flares actually cut the number of cosmic rays hitting Earth by deflecting the stream – solar wind – of particles.
