Jan. 19, 2012: A powerful M2-class solar flare erupts from the sun in this image from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory.

A powerful flare erupted from the sun Thursday, Jan. 19, unleashing a plasma wave that may supercharge the northern lights for skywatchers in high latitudes this weekend.

The solar flare occurred at about 11:30 am EST (1600 GMT) and touched off a massive solar explosion — known as a coronal mass ejection — aimed at Earth, space weather experts and officials said. The charged particles from the sun explosion should reach Earth by Saturday night (Jan. 21), and could amp up northern lights displays when they hit the upper atmosphere.

"Forecasters say strong geomagnetic storms are possible when the cloud arrives during the late hours of Jan. 21st. High-latitude (and possibly middle-latitude) sky watchers should be alert for auroras this weekend," the skywatch…

We are assembled this morning to pay our last respects to the remains of a beloved sister, and we meet here with cheerfulness.

Marion G. Romney: "If...socialism takes over in America, it will have to be displaced" 1966

Marion G. Romney: "If...socialism takes over in America, it will have to be displaced, if need be, by the power of God" -- March 1, 1966 at BYU Marion G. Romney gave a fantastic talk on SOCIALISM AND THE UNITED ORDER on March 1, 1966 at BYU. In the talk he made some key statements:

1. "If, in the meantime, socialism takes over in America, it will have to be displaced, if need be, by the power of God, because the United Order can never function under socialism or "the welfare state," for the good and sufficient reason that the principles upon which socialism and the United Order are conceived and operated are inimical." [this one seems prophetic to me, considering the road we have traveled as a nation, which is why I have placed it in this forum]

2. "When Zion is redeemed, as it most certainly shall be, it will be redeemed under a government, and by a people, strictly observing those "just and holy principles" of the Constitution which accord t…
