Matahari seperti sedang 'mengamuk".

Saco-Indonesia.com — Matahari seperti sedang 'mengamuk". Dalam 24 jam, terhitung sejak Senin (13/3/2013) hingga Selasa (14/5/2013), Matahari telah menghasilkan tiga badai Matahari.

Laporan NASA pada Selasa hari ini menyatakan bahwa badai Matahari tersebut adalah badai terbesar sejak awal 2013 hingga bulan Mei ini. Ketiga badai Matahari itu termasuk dalam kelas X, golongan badai Matahari paling kuat.

Badai Matahari pertama terjadi pada Senin kemarin sekitar pukul 9.17 WIB. Badai pertama termasuk kelas X 1,7. Sementara badai kedua terjadi pada hari yang sama sekitar pukul 23.09 WIB, termasuk kelas 2,8.

Badai Matahari kelas X 2 dua kali lebih besar dari X 1, sedangkan kelas X 3 tiga kali lebih besar dari kelas X 1.

Badai Matahari terkini terjadi Selasa pagi ini sekitar pukul 08.17 WIB. Jika sebelumnya hanya masuk kelas X 1 dan X 2, badai Matahari terkini itu masuk kelas X 3,2. Inilah badai Matahari terbesar tahun 2013.

Fenomena badai Matahari ini terdeteksi oleh satelit Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO). Sumber badai Matahari sendiri adalah bintik Matahari AR 1748 yang terbentuk seminggu lalu. Bintik ini tak terdeteksi sebelumnya karena terbentuk di sisi Matahari yang tak menghadap Bumi.

NASA menyatakan bahwa badai Matahari tak mengarah ke Bumi sehingga tak akan menimbulkan dampak apa pun.

NASA juga menyatakan bahwa jika pun badai Matahari mengarah ke Bumi tak ada bencana yang akan terjadi. Gangguan yang muncul akibat badai Matahari adalah pada komunikasi. Pada tahun 1989, badai Matahari membuat listrik di wilayah Quebec, Kanada, mati.

Dampak paling serius akibat tiga badai Matahari ini adalah pada komunikasi satelit Spitzer dan wahana Deep Impact. Badai diperkirakan akan sampai di satelit tersebut pada 15 atau 16 Mei 2013 mendatang. NASA berencana untuk menonaktifkan satelit itu sementara.

Badai Matahari, seperti diketahui, berbeda dengan pengertian badai yang terjadi di Bumi. Badai Matahari adalah pancaran gelombang elektromagnetik terkait dengan fenomena Lontaran Massa Korona yang sanggup melemparkan partikel berenergi tinggi dari Matahari ke antariksa.

saco-indonesia.com, Presiden Internazionale Erick Thohir paham bahwa Derby della Madonnina akan melawan AC Milan adalah salah satu laga yang terpenting musim ini. Dia pun juga mengatakan bahwa Nerazzurri juga tak bisa menganggap remeh sang rival sekota meski mereka telah terpisah jarak cukup lebar di klasemen sementara.

Inter saat ini telah menempati posisi lima Serie A 2013/14 dengan 28 poin, sedangkan Milan tercecer di tangga ke-10 dengan 19 angka. Dalam sebuah derby, hal semacam itu juga tak bisa dijadikan sebagai acuan. Bentrokan giornata 17, Senin (23/12), juga takkan jauh beda.

"Derby adalah salah satu laga yang terpenting musim ini. Saya juga tak sabar untuk dapat menyaksikannya dan pasti hebat kalau kami bisa menang," papar Thohir kepada Sky Sport Italia.

"Namun, kami juga tak bisa meremehkan AC Milan karena mereka juga telah memiliki tim yang sangat kuat. Saya tahu laga ini takkan mudah, tapi kami juga harus memberikan yang terbaik," imbuhnya.

Inter juga butuh kemenangan untuk dapat mengejar 35 poin Napoli di batas zona Liga Champions, sedangkan Milan bertekad kembali ke papan atas. Selain tiga angka, gengsi juga menjadi salah satu pertimbangan.

Laga ini bakal ketat.

Though Robin and Joan Rolfs owned two rare talking dolls manufactured by Thomas Edison’s phonograph company in 1890, they did not dare play the wax cylinder records tucked inside each one.

The Rolfses, longtime collectors of Edison phonographs, knew that if they turned the cranks on the dolls’ backs, the steel phonograph needle might damage or destroy the grooves of the hollow, ring-shaped cylinder. And so for years, the dolls sat side by side inside a display cabinet, bearers of a message from the dawn of sound recording that nobody could hear.

In 1890, Edison’s dolls were a flop; production lasted only six weeks. Children found them difficult to operate and more scary than cuddly. The recordings inside, which featured snippets of nursery rhymes, wore out quickly.

Yet sound historians say the cylinders were the first entertainment records ever made, and the young girls hired to recite the rhymes were the world’s first recording artists.

Year after year, the Rolfses asked experts if there might be a safe way to play the recordings. Then a government laboratory developed a method to play fragile records without touching them.

Audio

The technique relies on a microscope to create images of the grooves in exquisite detail. A computer approximates — with great accuracy — the sounds that would have been created by a needle moving through those grooves.

In 2014, the technology was made available for the first time outside the laboratory.

“The fear all along is that we don’t want to damage these records. We don’t want to put a stylus on them,” said Jerry Fabris, the curator of the Thomas Edison Historical Park in West Orange, N.J. “Now we have the technology to play them safely.”

Last month, the Historical Park posted online three never-before-heard Edison doll recordings, including the two from the Rolfses’ collection. “There are probably more out there, and we’re hoping people will now get them digitized,” Mr. Fabris said.

The technology, which is known as Irene (Image, Reconstruct, Erase Noise, Etc.), was developed by the particle physicist Carl Haber and the engineer Earl Cornell at Lawrence Berkeley. Irene extracts sound from cylinder and disk records. It can also reconstruct audio from recordings so badly damaged they were deemed unplayable.

“We are now hearing sounds from history that I did not expect to hear in my lifetime,” Mr. Fabris said.

The Rolfses said they were not sure what to expect in August when they carefully packed their two Edison doll cylinders, still attached to their motors, and drove from their home in Hortonville, Wis., to the National Document Conservation Center in Andover, Mass. The center had recently acquired Irene technology.

Audio

Cylinders carry sound in a spiral groove cut by a phonograph recording needle that vibrates up and down, creating a surface made of tiny hills and valleys. In the Irene set-up, a microscope perched above the shaft takes thousands of high-resolution images of small sections of the grooves.

Stitched together, the images provide a topographic map of the cylinder’s surface, charting changes in depth as small as one five-hundredth the thickness of a human hair. Pitch, volume and timbre are all encoded in the hills and valleys and the speed at which the record is played.

At the conservation center, the preservation specialist Mason Vander Lugt attached one of the cylinders to the end of a rotating shaft. Huddled around a computer screen, the Rolfses first saw the wiggly waveform generated by Irene. Then came the digital audio. The words were at first indistinct, but as Mr. Lugt filtered out more of the noise, the rhyme became clearer.

“That was the Eureka moment,” Mr. Rolfs said.

In 1890, a girl in Edison’s laboratory had recited:

There was a little girl,

And she had a little curl

Audio

Right in the middle of her forehead.

When she was good,

She was very, very good.

But when she was bad, she was horrid.

Recently, the conservation center turned up another surprise.

In 2010, the Woody Guthrie Foundation received 18 oversize phonograph disks from an anonymous donor. No one knew if any of the dirt-stained recordings featured Guthrie, but Tiffany Colannino, then the foundation’s archivist, had stored them unplayed until she heard about Irene.

Last fall, the center extracted audio from one of the records, labeled “Jam Session 9” and emailed the digital file to Ms. Colannino.

“I was just sitting in my dining room, and the next thing I know, I’m hearing Woody,” she said. In between solo performances of “Ladies Auxiliary,” “Jesus Christ,” and “Dead or Alive,” Guthrie tells jokes, offers some back story, and makes the audience laugh. “It is quintessential Guthrie,” Ms. Colannino said.

The Rolfses’ dolls are back in the display cabinet in Wisconsin. But with audio stored on several computers, they now have a permanent voice.

BALTIMORE — In the afternoons, the streets of Locust Point are clean and nearly silent. In front of the rowhouses, potted plants rest next to steps of brick or concrete. There is a shopping center nearby with restaurants, and a grocery store filled with fresh foods.

And the National Guard and the police are largely absent. So, too, residents say, are worries about what happened a few miles away on April 27 when, in a space of hours, parts of this city became riot zones.

“They’re not our reality,” Ashley Fowler, 30, said on Monday at the restaurant where she works. “They’re not what we’re living right now. We live in, not to be racist, white America.”

As Baltimore considers its way forward after the violent unrest brought by the death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man who died of injuries he suffered while in police custody, residents in its predominantly white neighborhoods acknowledge that they are sometimes struggling to understand what beyond Mr. Gray’s death spurred the turmoil here. For many, the poverty and troubled schools of gritty West Baltimore are distant troubles, glimpsed only when they pass through the area on their way somewhere else.

And so neighborhoods of Baltimore are facing altogether different reckonings after Mr. Gray’s death. In mostly black communities like Sandtown-Winchester, where some of the most destructive rioting played out last week, residents are hoping businesses will reopen and that the police will change their strategies. But in mostly white areas like Canton and Locust Point, some residents wonder what role, if any, they should play in reimagining stretches of Baltimore where they do not live.

“Most of the people are kind of at a loss as to what they’re supposed to do,” said Dr. Richard Lamb, a dentist who has practiced in the same Locust Point office for nearly 39 years. “I listen to the news reports. I listen to the clergymen. I listen to the facts of the rampant unemployment and the lack of opportunities in the area. Listen, I pay my taxes. Exactly what can I do?”

And in Canton, where the restaurants have clever names like Nacho Mama’s and Holy Crepe Bakery and Café, Sara Bahr said solutions seemed out of reach for a proudly liberal city.

“I can only imagine how frustrated they must be,” said Ms. Bahr, 36, a nurse who was out with her 3-year-old daughter, Sally. “I just wish I knew how to solve poverty. I don’t know what to do to make it better.”

The day of unrest and the overwhelmingly peaceful demonstrations that followed led to hundreds of arrests, often for violations of the curfew imposed on the city for five consecutive nights while National Guard soldiers patrolled the streets. Although there were isolated instances of trouble in Canton, the neighborhood association said on its website, many parts of southeast Baltimore were physically untouched by the tumult.

Tensions in the city bubbled anew on Monday after reports that the police had wounded a black man in Northwest Baltimore. The authorities denied those reports and sent officers to talk with the crowds that gathered while other officers clutching shields blocked traffic at Pennsylvania and West North Avenues.

Lt. Col. Melvin Russell, a community police officer, said officers had stopped a man suspected of carrying a handgun and that “one of those rounds was spent.”

Colonel Russell said officers had not opened fire, “so we couldn’t have shot him.”

The colonel said the man had not been injured but was taken to a hospital as a precaution. Nearby, many people stood in disbelief, despite the efforts by the authorities to quash reports they described as “unfounded.”

Monday’s episode was a brief moment in a larger drama that has yielded anger and confusion. Although many people said they were familiar with accounts of the police harassing or intimidating residents, many in Canton and Locust Point said they had never experienced it themselves. When they watched the unrest, which many protesters said was fueled by feelings that they lived only on Baltimore’s margins, even those like Ms. Bahr who were pained by what they saw said they could scarcely comprehend the emotions associated with it.

But others, like Lambi Vasilakopoulos, who runs a casual restaurant in Canton, said they were incensed by what unfolded last week.

“What happened wasn’t called for. Protests are one thing; looting is another thing,” he said, adding, “We’re very frustrated because we’re the ones who are going to pay for this.”

There were pockets of optimism, though, that Baltimore would enter a period of reconciliation.

“I’m just hoping for peace,” Natalie Boies, 53, said in front of the Locust Point home where she has lived for 50 years. “Learn to love each other; be patient with each other; find justice; and care.”

A skeptical Mr. Vasilakopoulos predicted tensions would worsen.

“It cannot be fixed,” he said. “It’s going to get worse. Why? Because people don’t obey the laws. They don’t want to obey them.”

But there were few fears that the violence that plagued West Baltimore last week would play out on these relaxed streets. The authorities, Ms. Fowler said, would make sure of that.

“They kept us safe here,” she said. “I didn’t feel uncomfortable when I was in my house three blocks away from here. I knew I was going to be O.K. because I knew they weren’t going to let anyone come and loot our properties or our businesses or burn our cars.”
