Not an informative article. Oh lord, Darius Pethel thought as he recognized the customer. Don't we have his 'scuttler fixed yet? He rose to his feet, knowing that he would be personally needed to appease the man; this was Dr Lurton Sands, and because of his recent domestic troubles he had become, of late, demanding and hot-tempered. Trying to fight off Myra as well as keep his mistress, Cally Vale, Dr Sands had enough problems; he really needed the use of his Jiffi-scuttler. Unlike other customers it was not going to be possible to put this man off. Plucking by reflex at his great handlebar mustache, presitial candidate Jim Briskin said tentatively, 'We're in a rut, Sal.
I ought to fire you. You're trying to make me out the epitome of the Cols and yet you know I've spent twenty years playing up to the white power structure. Frankly, I think we'd have better luck trying to get the white vote, not the dark. I'm used to them; I can appeal to them. In you these people see I can't close the Dept of SPW warehouses; you know that. You got me to promise, and ever since I've been sweating my life away trying to conceive how it could be done. And there isn't any way. That's insane! If the Golden Door is closed, the birth rate will jump back up again where it was - what then?
How does Danville manage to counter that? And animals should wear pants. You back a planetary colonization scheme tried twenty years ago and abandoned; you advocate closing the Golden Door satellite - you'll be popular, Jim, after tonight. But popular with whom, though? Just answer me; who is this aimed at? There was silence. Of saying to hell with the whole thing. It's how you shed responsibility; I saw you start to do the same thing at the convention in that crazy doomsday speech you gave, that morbid curiosity which still has everyone baffled.

But fortunately you'd already been nominated. It was too late for the convention to repudiate you. Some convictions for the first Col President to have. You know; the man you're running against. The SRCD incumbent. Then after you gas about Woodbine - and we show a few shots of you and him standing together on various planets - then you make a joke about Dr Sands. Is Sands a sacred cow? You can't touch him?
By finding him a wet new liver just in the nick of time. Or he saved your mother just when. Including plenty of Cols. Whether they were able to pay or not. Years ago I went to her; I had made a girl preg and we wanted abort advice. Fortunately, these cracks don't expose Earth's surface to the solar wind. Our atmosphere protects us, even when our magnetic field doesn't. The effects of solar storms are felt mainly in the high upper atmosphere and the region of space around Earth where satellites orbit.
Stay tuned later this week for a follow-up story from Science NASA about how magnetic cracks have lately sparked beautiful auroras--a phenomenon of the upper atmosphere--in some unexpected places. The Cluster satellites , built by ESA, and launched July 16, , are making a three-dimensional map of the Earth's magnetic field. Click here for images, movies and more information.
