Solar disturbances are greater when sunspot numbers are high – and so, in turn, we see more intense and active northern lights when sunspots are common. Sunspots come and go in 'sunspot cycles' which peak about every 11 years.

You may have heard that churches in Europe are vanishing. Yet church growth in London has been steady for decades, fueled by such innovations as Alpha and Fresh Expressions. What about outside the capital? Some, both inside and outside the church, say churches “cannot grow.” But here they are—growing churches—in the north of England of all places. This is not only a story about England. It is about growing churches wherever you’ve heard they “can’t” grow. God is always up to something precisely where (we think) God shouldn’t be.

A stunning debut novel set in the late 1990s—“a powerful depiction of the currency of intolerance and addiction in one small town” (Kirkus Reviews)—about an androgynous youth who arrives in Minnesota, searching for the mother who abandoned him as a child. On a clear morning in the summer of 1997, Shane Stephenson arrives in Holm, Minnesota, with only a few changes of clothes, an old Nintendo, and a few dollars to his name. Reeling from the death of his father, Shane wants to find the mother who abandoned him as an adolescent—hoping to reconnect, but also to better understand himself. Against the backdrop of Minnesota’s rugged wilderness, and a town littered with shuttered shops, graffiti, and crumbling infrastructure, Holm feels wild and dangerous. Holm’s residents, too, are wary of outsiders, and Shane’s long blonde hair and androgynous looks draw attention from a violent and bigoted contingent in town, including the unhinged Sven Svenson. He is drawn in by a group of sympathetic friends in their teens and early twenties, all similarly lost: the reckless, charming J and his girlfriend Mary; Jenny, a brilliant and beautiful artist who dreams of escaping Holm; and the mysterious loner Russell, to whom Shane, against his better judgment, feels a strange attraction. As Sven’s threats of violence escalate, Shane is forced to choose between his search for his mother, the first true friendships he’s ever had, and a desire to leave both his past and present behind entirely. “A cross between two of the greats in those categories: The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton, and Jesus’ Son by Denis Johnson” (Star Tribune, Minneapolis), Raymond Strom’s Northern Lights presents an unforgettable world and an experience often overlooked, with a new kind of hero to admire.

Northern lights, Frozen Nights A Collection of Previously Unpublished Short Stories by Russell Annabel Compiled and Edited byjefic Davis Northern Lights, Frozen Nights Northern Lights, Frozen Nights § A. Front Cover.
Author: Jeff Davis
Russell Annabel was best known for his Alaskan action-adventure tales. In 1920, at the tender age of 15, he left his family in Washington State and boarded a steamer for Alaska. Over the next 35 years he trapped, prospected, hunted and fished this great land, frequently in the company of venerable old Tex Cobb, the sourdough that taught him wilderness survival. When Rusty died in 1979, he left behind a permanent record of his adventures, something few illiterate prospectors or sourdoughs were capable of. His Technicolor descriptions of North America's most spectacular game land captivated the imagination of anyone lucky enough to read them. Author Jeff Davis spent two years researching the life and times of Russell Annabel. In 1998, a startling discovery was made: old, dusty boxes that contained Rusty's Alaskan files. Stored in a friend's garage in Anchorage, those old stories, newspaper clippings and notes for future stories had been collecting dust for half a century. Organizing the notes and outlines became an intriguing challenge. If enough material could be pieced together to form another Annabel tale, this would be the first unpublished Annabel material to appear in print in two decades. Amazingly, not one, but ten complete stories were pieced together, ranging from pure Annabel outdoor tales to WWII stories that came out of his war correspondent experience.
NORTHERN. LIGHTS. The cold on my face wakes me in the night and I pull my bag up to over my nose. The sky has changed, and a ribbon of light sits on the horizon, pulsating in a slow-motion wave. It's the Northern Lights.

My hunt for a Dall ram in the Chugach Mountains of Alaska became an epic adventure and stretched me beyond my limits, or so I thought. High on the rocky face of a steep mountainside, I found myself both physically and mentally spent. Exhaustion and confusion are a dangerous combination in a spot like that. Sweat stung my eyes and ran off my nose. My heartbeat pulsed in my ears and my arms and legs were limp with fatigue. I reached deep for a little more grit and climbed on. At the top of the next pitch I found a flat section of grass about the length of my body, an oasis and a reprieve from the misery. Life altering epiphanies come at a price. Amid the northern nights in the Chugach Mountains I found a bigger world than I'd ever known.

Long-range transport by air and water carries many of these pollutants to the circumpolar north, where they threaten the health and cultural survival of Inuit and other northern Indigenous peoples.
