WakingTimes – April McCarthy – Organic Label Fraud – Pesticides Found On 45 Percent Of Organic Produce & 77 Percent Of Organic Grapes Test Positive – 12 June 2014

waking_times_logo_6-5-12_1The most common recommendation made by health experts in the area of produce selection is to choose “organic” varieties for maximum health benefits. We trust organic label certifications because they are supposed to comply with organic standards set by national governments and international organizations. Synthetic pesticides and chemical fertilizers are not allowed in organic practices, but that’s not always the case. Research by a Food Inspection Agency in Canada has found that nearly half the organic fresh fruits and vegetables tested in the past two years contained pesticide residue, violating maximum allowable limits for the presence of pesticides, the data shows.

SpaceWeatherLive Report – Analysis Of The Solar Activity & Active Regions June 12th 2014 14h45 – 12 June 2014

https://i2.wp.com/www.spaceweatherlive.com/community/public/style_images/1_logo.pngDiscussion of todays activity
June 12th is yet another active day on the Sun, no X-class flares where observed but three moderately strong M-class flares where observed from two active regions and also numerous C-class flares. The first M-class flare from today was an M2 solar flare from AR12087 and peaked at 04h21, it was however a short flare but looking at difference images there looks to be a CME associated with it but won’t be Earth directed due to the position of the region. The second flare was an M1.8 solar flare from AR12085 and immediately after followed by an M2 solar flare from AR12087. On the difference images of SDO imagery there is coronal dimming visible with material that’s being ejected, due to the lack of LASCO imagery we can’t determine if there is an Earthward directed part. EPAM monitor did show a rise in the low energy electrons so there might be an Earthward part but we will make a CME analysis once LASCO data is completed.
