SOLAR ACTIVITY INTENSIFIES: Huge sunspot AR1476 is crackling with M-class solar flares and appears to be on the verge of producing something even stronger. The sunspot's 'beta-gamma-delta' magnetic field harbors energy for X-class flares, the most powerful kind. Earth is entering the line of fire as the sunspot rotates across the face of the sun.
BIG SUNSPOT: One of the largest sunspot groups in years rotated over the sun's northeastern limb this weekend. With a least four dark cores larger than Earth, AR1476 sprawls more than 100,000 km from end to end, and makes an easy target for backyard solar telescopes. Amateur astronomer Alan Friedman sends this picture of the behemoth from his backyard in Buffalo, NY:
ECONOMÍA. La vuelta de la retroactividad de las prestaciones sociales no solo se convertirá en un hecho con la entrada en vigencia de la Ley Orgánica del Trabajo de los Trabajadores y Trabajadoras (LOTTT), sino que reconocerá los últimos 15 años de servicio.

One year's compensation for Timothy Cook - Apple's CEO = 378 million, mostly in stock. Here you can compare that to the 49 other highest-paid CEOs, and at the bottom you can see what else that 378m could have purchased.
BACK in 2004, as Google prepared to go public, Larry Page and Sergey Brin celebrated the maxim that was supposed to define their company: “Don’t be evil.”
PayPal has long described this as a “risk-prevention technique,” but that makes little sense, because even customers with perfect track records must comply. No, PayPal wants bank account information, as a spokeswoman acknowledged in that 2010 column, because it’s cheaper to scoop money from a bank than to deal with a credit card. And if PayPal has to deal with a credit card, it would like to deal with a PayPal credit card.
