Lockheed Martin has released new research which revealed about 4% of power disruptions from 1992 to 2010 were correlated with the heightened solar activity (CME activity). This information is in contrast with government reports that reported zero disruptions were related to the solar activity during the same time frame.
With the upcoming predictions of solar extremes later this year, I wonder what (if any) impact these disruptions may have on our power and electronic systems. read more »

RETHINKING BUSINESS COMMUNICATIONS BLOG TURNED ONE YEAROLD ON MARCH 24TH!
A year ago, I ventured into the terribly exciting, (but intimidating), world of the blogosphere.
