The Sun lets loose an M9 flare
On July 30, 2011 at 02:00 UTC a sunspot erupted on the Sun, giving off a brief but powerful class M9 flare. The first segment shows it at 33.5 nanometers, in the ultraviolet (colored blue for clarity). You can see the explosion in the middle of the three bright regions. The second segment shows it a bit farther into the UV (falsely colored orange). I have not heard of any effect on Earth from this flare, though we may get some aurorae from it in a day or two.

Design of a View-Based DSS For Location Planning
This paper describes the design of a DSS for locating facility networks. The proposed DSS is based on the principle of dynamic data definitions. The declarative and procedural forms of knowledge involved are identified by a logical analysis of planning tasks. The DSS supports an iterating process of adjusting and evaluating plan options. A flexible and interactive problem solving environment is achieved by means of a user defined set of views that captures both forms of knowledge. Each view desc
The Future of the United Nations Security Council
2008 has already brought major new challenges for diplomats. The situations in Kenya and Pakistan underline the depths of the problems in Africa and elsewhere. The Security Council and UN peacekeepers were already at historically high levels of activity in 2006-2007. Can they take on any more? NATO, the EU, the US, the Nordics, and Australia and New Zealand also seem to be stretched to the limit. Perhaps it is time for some searching analysis of whether the current machinery for international co

6.881 Representation and Modeling for Image Analysis (MIT)
Most algorithms in computer vision and image analysis can be understood in terms of two important components: a representation and a modeling/estimation algorithm. The representation defines what information is important about the objects and is used to describe them. The modeling techniques extract the information from images to instantiate the representation for the particular objects present in the scene. In this seminar, we will discuss popular representations (such as contours, level sets,
