 - Photo by Hugo Løhre of amazing aurora over Lekangsund, Norway, on October 10, 2012.

On October 8, 2012, a coronal mass ejection – or CME – from the sun hit Earth’s magnetic field. This stream of charged particles caused by a solar storm sparked a dramatic display of the aurora, or northern lights, which lasted for several days.

 - Sand dunes only sing in a few areas across the globe, and their songs – always a low, droning sound -- have been an object of curiosity for centuries. Marco Polo encountered their haunting drone during his travels and Charles Darwin, in his book “The Voyage of the Beagle,” wrote of testimonials from Chileans about the sound of a sandy hill they called the “bellower.”

The song of the sands is a low hum at a frequency within the bottom half of a cello’s musical range. These dunes only sing when the sand is sliding down their sides. People can set the sand in motion themselves or, more eerily, the wind can create sand avalanches, creating a sudden, booming chorus.

- Wouldn't it be nice to predict future events, even if they are just ten seconds ahead? According to researchers at Northwestern University, we can do just that.

"When we watch everyday activity unfold around us, we make predictions about what will happen a few seconds out," Zacks says. "Most of the time, our predictions are right.

"Successfull predictions are associated with the subjective experience of a smooth stream of consciousness...."

- Guatemala's Mayan people accused the government and tour groups on Wednesday of perpetuating the myth that their calendar foresees the imminent end of the world for monetary gain.

"We are speaking out against deceit, lies and twisting of the truth, and turning us into folklore-for-profit. They are not telling the truth about time cycles," charged Felipe Gomez, leader of the Maya alliance Oxlaljuj Ajpop.

Maya leader Gomez urged the Tourism Institute to rethink the doomsday celebration, which he criticized as a "show" that was disrespectful to Mayan culture. Experts say that for the Maya, all that ends in 2012 is one of their calendar cycles, not the world.

 - An international team of scientists have created the largest ever catalog of the center of our galaxy.

The nine-gigapixel zoomable image of 84 million stars has been created by an international team of astronomers using the UK-built VISTA infrared survey telescope at ESO’s Paranal Observatory.

The image is so large that, if printed with the resolution of the average book, it would be nine meters long and seven meters tall. The huge dataset contains ten times more stars than previous studies and is a major step forward for the understanding of our home galaxy, the Milky Way.

 - A white whale known as NOC was able to imitate the sound of human voices even though cetaceans make sounds in a totally different way.

This audio clip captures the unusual speech-like sounds from a white whale known as NOC.

Back in 1984, strange sounds were heard at the National Marine Mammal Foundation in California, that sounded like a distant conversation between two people.

One day, a diver in the whale enclosure thought he heard someone telling him to get out of the water. The noises turned out to be coming from NOC, whose calls were similar to human speech and several octaves lower than the sounds whales typically make.

“Our observations suggest that the whale had to modify its vocal mechanics in order to make the speech-like sounds,” said study co-author Sam Ridgway. “Such obvious effort suggests motivation for contact.”

 - The weirdest weather in the UK on record continues this week – a 20C Indian summer is set to be followed by snow with 'blood rain' thrown in for good measure, the Met office says.

Temperatures are set to soar this week to an unseasonably warm 20C – but the Indian summer is not set to last as snow as predicted for the end of the week.

A wave of hot air from North Africa is set to sweep through the United Kingdom from tomorrow bringing sunny spells and temperatures in the high teens across the UK.

It could also bring 'blood rain' – rain carrying red dust from the Sahara which is capable of staining cars.

And freezing arctic winds are set to send temperatures plummeting at the end of the week, with snow forecast in the north of England and Scotland by next weekend.

 - A revolutionary paper by the International Monetary Fund claims that one could eliminate the net public debt of the US at a stroke, and by implication do the same for Britain, Germany, Italy, or Japan.

The IMF reports says the conjuring trick is to replace our system of private bank-created money with state-created money. We return to the historical norm, before Charles II placed control of the money supply in private hands with the English Free Coinage Act of 1666.

 - Gravitational water vortex electricity plants are a new solution in renewable energy production, and the concept is starting to gain more attention worldwide as a sustainable and environment friendly technology.

The first such plant was built in Switzerland in 2009 and was named after innovation pioneer Dr. Bertrand Piccard, inventor of the solar-power airplane and the first man to fly around the world in a hot-air balloon.

Equador will also soon begin to use the gravitational water vortex technology, an example that progress is possible using clean, reliable and renewable forms of energy.

 - The State of Israel's policies of dispossession and forced removal are a mirror of South African apartheid, with plans to displace 30,000 bedouins in the Negev reminiscent of the forced removals of 65,000 blacks in Sophiatown in 1955.

On September 12, 2012, the Bedouin village of Al-Arakib in Israel's Negev region was demolished for the thirty-ninth time - despite tenure dating back to the Ottoman period.

More recently the government won the right to build a Jewish settlement on the site of the Bedouin village of Umm al-Hiran. The planned Jewish settlement will become Hiran.
