China has successfully launched its first solar observatory, nicknamed Kuafu-1, after a giant in Chinese mythology who wished to capture and tame the Sun, the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASC) informs, Sputnik reported.
The launch was carried out on Sunday, at 7.43 a.m. local time (23:43 GMT on Saturday), from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in northwestern China, using the Long March-2D carrier rocket, CASC said.
Kuafu-1, or the Advanced Space-based Solar Observatory (ASO-S), entered its planned orbit successfully, according to CASC.
Kuafu-1 will observe the Sun from an orbit 720 kilometers (447 miles) above Earth’s surface and will help study how the Sun’s magnetic field creates its energetic emissions. The mission is expected to last four years.

A Chinese spacecraft has taken flight to study the sun and Excellerate space-weather predictions.
The satellite, known as the Advanced Space-based Solar Observatory (ASO-S), lifted off atop a Long March 2D rocket on Saturday (Oct. 8) at 7:43 p.m. EDT (2343 GMT; 7:43 a.m. Beijin time on Oct. 9) from Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in Inner Mongolia.
The ASO-S spacecraft — nicknamed Kuafu-1, after a giant in Chinese mythology who chased the sun — was deployed successfully into its target orbit, a sun-synchronous path about 450 miles (720 kilometers) above Earth, according to the state-run media outlet Xinhua(opens in new tab).
The ASO-S mission was first proposed by the Chinese heliophysics community in 2011, according to the Chinese Academy of Sciences(opens in new tab) (CAS). The 1,960-pound (888 kilograms) probe will use three instruments to study the sun's magnetic field, solar flares and coronal mass ejections (CMEs), huge bursts of superheated plasma that rocket away from the sun at millions of miles per hour.
Solar flares are often associated with CMEs, and both can affect us here on Earth. Powerful CMEs, for example, can spawn geomagnetic storms that can disrupt power grids, radio communications and GPS navigation. (As a mitigating side effect, CMEs can also supercharge the auroras.)
ASO-S aims to conduct simultaneous observations of flares and CMEs "to understand their connections and formation mechanisms," CAS officials wrote in a mission description(opens in new tab). The spacecraft will also study how energy is transported through different layers of the sun's atmosphere, and how flare and CME evolution is affected by the solar magnetic field.
ASO-S is designed to operate for at least four years and generate about 500 gigabytes of data daily. This information could end up having considerable practical applications; the CAS explainer lists as a target objective the "observation of solar eruptions and the magnetic field evolution to facilitate forecasting of the space weather and to safeguard valuable assets in space."

The Sun has been extremely active this year as it reaches the peak of its solar cycle and just in the last week, it has hurtled three solar flares, 18 coronal mass ejections, and 1 geomagnetic storm. But it has not been like this forever. There have been times when the sunspots on the surface completely vanish and the star in our solar system appears to be sleeping.Also Read - NASA Faster Than Sound? Space Agency To Break Sound Barrier For Future Air Travel. Here Is How
Researchers at the Center of Excellence in Space Sciences India at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER), Kolkata have revealed what happens when the activity on the sun is completely missing and how the star regains its energy to burst with life and hurtle dangerous flares throughout the solar system, as per a report by India Today. Also Read - Tarantula, Skeletons, Frankenstein And Everything Scary About NASA's H(alloween)Exoplanets
There have been episodes in the past when the activity on the Sun has been at an all-time low with no sunspots. This period is known as the grand minimum, which is characterised by significant reductions in solar radiation and particulate output.
Astronomers have found that the waxing and waning of the number of sunspots observed on the star’s surface came to a grinding halt during 1645-1715. This has not been a standalone event, such minima have been recorded throughout the Sun’s life, which is 4.6 billion years old.
While we know what happens on the surface of the Sun, during this period, there is little information about the activity in the polar and interior regions. It is widely believed the large-scale magnetic cycle of the Sun switches off during these phases, the new study points to the fact that it does not mean the complete shutdown of the activity.
WHAT HAVE RESEARCHERS FOUND?
The study conducted by Ph.D. student at IISER Chitradeep Saha along with Sanghita Chandra and Professor Dibyendu Nandy reveals that magnetic fields in the Sun’s interior remain rather busy during these apparently dormant phases. The magnetic activity persists in the form of weak cycles in the convection zone that is incapable of producing sunspots.
The team also demonstrated the ceaseless overturning motion of the plasma in the solar convection zone that acts as a clock, driving weak magnetic cycles within the Sun during what were believed to be phases of extreme inactivity.
“Our 10,000-year-long computer simulations shed light on the dynamics that go on in the solar interior (convection zone) and at the polar regions even when there are critically low number of sunspot eruptions on the solar surface for a prolonged period known as grand solar minimum. The ceaseless plasma motion and turbulent fluctuations in the convection zone eventually helps the star regain its regular magnetic activity again,” Chitradeep Saha, lead author of the paper told indiatoday.in.
The study is set to aid future missions planned to study the Sun, with a focus on the interior and the polar regions that have remained enigmatic to astronomers. At the moment, two major missions Nasa’s Parker Solar Probe and Europe’s Solar Orbiter, are inching closer to the star to study the developments and to better understand space weather.
India is also planning to launch the Aditya L-1 mission that will study the Sun in finer detail.

Global sentiments dampened over the previous weekend, leading to a massive gap-down opening on October 10. But markets managed to deliver a V-shaped recovery to reclaim the 17,200 mark at the close. On the subsequent session, the benchmark index Nifty failed to sustain at higher levels and due to immense selling in some of the heavyweight pockets, we finally surrendered 17,000 on a closing basis.
For the next couple of sessions, we did see some rangebound action with key levels being held on either side. However, On Friday, markets stated the session with a huge bump up, courtesy to spectacular overnight rally in US bourses.
Once again at higher levels, tentative traders chose to take some money off the table. This resulted in trimming some gains but despite this, Nifty managed to conclude the week tad below 17,200 by restricting the weekly losses to merely seven tenths of a percent.
It was a bit challenging week as markets remained clueless for the most part of the week. In fact, on Friday when things started to look a bit rosy, the last hour profit booking reduced the excitement level among the market participants. Nevertheless, Nifty defending key support zone (cluster of 89-day EMA (exponential moving average) and 200-day SMA (simple moving average)) amid an uncertainty, bodes well for the bulls.
Going ahead, we will not be surprised to see global relief extending a bit, which will provide the much-needed impetus to stronger markets like us.
As far as supports are concerned, 17,000 – 16,800 has proved its mettle and it continues to be a sacrosanct zone for the coming week as well. On the flipside, if we find tiny support also from the global peers, the Nifty is good to go beyond the study wall of 17,400. This will help us find our mojo back and, in this case, we would certainly gear up for a pre-Diwali rally in our market.
Hopefully, our anticipation becomes the reality in the coming week as this will bring back the wider smile back in traders' fraternity. It's advisable to continue with an optimistic approach and ideally one should keep focusing on thematic movers which are likely to provide better trading opportunities.
This pharma giant has been bucking the trend since last month or so as we saw benchmark index declining by more than 5 percent in this span and meanwhile, this stock gave stupendous move of more than 12 percent.
If we take a glance at the broader picture, we can realize that the stock has now reached highest level in seven years which certainly is a great achievement.
Technically speaking, stock prices are continuing with higher highs and higher lows cycle and the way momentum oscillators are poised, we will not be surprised to see this stock entering the 4-digit territory soon.
We recommend buying for a near term target of Rs 1,010. Traders can participate by following strict stop-loss at Rs 963.
The IT has been the worst performing space in this calendar year. However, with result season kicked in, few marquee stocks within this pack have delivered robust set of numbers, which has brought some life back in respective names.
We expect some catch up to happen from this stock too in the forthcoming week. Pricewise, it's interestingly poised around key support zone. Also, the way the trading range is narrowing down day by day, the breakout is imminent soon.
However, the real strength would trigger only after surpassing the Rs 2,150 mark. Since we are anticipating it to happen, traders are advised to buy for a near term target of Rs 2,250. The strict stop-loss needs to be placed at Rs 2,040.

The first piece of legislation that newly elected Gov. Paul LePage introduced was a regulatory reform bill he said would cut bureaucratic red tape that stifled economic growth, but that environmental groups said would roll back some of Maine’s most important environmental protections.
A watered-down version of the bill, which had originally sought to repeal a ban on a toxic chemical in children’s products, overturn an electronic waste recycling law and abolish the Board of Environmental Protection, among other things, would eventually pass with bipartisan support.
It was the first in eight years of battles between LePage, a pugnacious pro-business Republican, and the environmental groups that grew to despise him. He insists he’s both pro-business and pro-environment, the way a fisherman, farmer or forester can both protect a resource and work it at the same time.
“We’ve never had the environmentalist elites and we never will,” LePage said in an interview. “Well, I don’t want them, OK? The blue collar guy, the working man, the small business guy. They’re my people. They’ve been my great supporters in 2010 and 2014 and I suspect they’ll be there again for us this year.”

When Democratic Gov. Janet Mills took office after LePage termed out, environmental groups rejoiced as the Democrat began reversing LePage’s anti-regulatory policies, took the lead in preparing Maine for climate change and tossed out many of LePage’s industry appointees.
Unlike LePage, who has in the past suggested global warming might be a scientific hoax and vetoed a 2013 study to prepare the state for its impacts, Mills created the Maine Climate Council in her first year in office and committed the state to carbon neutrality by 2045.
It was just one of dozens of environmental bills adopted by Mills and a Democrat-controlled Legislature in her first six months. Others included expansion of solar and offshore wind, improving water quality rules, banning offshore oil and gas drilling, and becoming the first state to ban Styrofoam food containers.
Mills pushed for legislation to reestablish the state’s net metering policy for solar power to ensure that consumers who produce excess electricity from solar panels will be fairly compensated, a policy LePage opposed. As a result, Maine has seen a 300 percent surge in solar capacity.
Maine exceeded its 2020 greenhouse gas emission reduction goal, cutting emissions below Maine’s 1990 levels by about 25 percent, and it is on track to meet its goal of using 80 percent renewable resources for electricity by 2030.
“Scientists are telling us that the danger of climate change is code red for humanity,” Mills said last year on the one-year anniversary of the state’s climate action plan. “You can’t get any more serious than that. It is threatening everything that we hold dear. It’s not alarmist to say we’re pretty much out of time.”
Independent Sam Hunkler, a 65-year-old doctor from Beals, is also on the gubernatorial ballot but lacks a record to compare to his rivals. He has said he would generally follow the same “ask Mainers” philosophy to set Maine’s environmental policy as he would for the economy or education.
“I do have ideas about how to protect our environment, but so do many other Mainers,” Hunkler said. “My goal is to bring entities together to discuss the many issues around conserving and protecting our air, water and land while using it in a sustainable fashion.”
The environment is a big issue with Maine voters. It was tied for third with energy costs for top concerns of voters in the spring 2022 Critical Insights on Maine poll – behind the economy and affordable housing, but ahead of inflation, the opioid crisis, the cost of living, unemployment and COVID-19.
That sounds like good news for Mills, but twice as many respondents identified the economy as their top concern as those who said environment or climate change. That total number grows higher when all the inflation, cost of living and unemployment respondents get added in.

LePage’s record and his personal grudge against some environmental groups – in 2016, he declared war on the Natural Resources Council of Maine after it worked to defeat a mining bill he wanted – can make it easy to overlook his intermittent environmental wins and Mills’ occasional losses.
In his first year in office, the LePage administration reached a $900,000 settlement with Chevron for a decades-long, 140,000-gallon oil leak into the Penobscot River from its Hampden oil terminal. The state hailed it as the largest environmental penalty it had received in two decades.
“A balance can be achieved between protecting our environment and a prosperous economy,” said John McGough, LePage’s senior campaign adviser, when asked to point out LePage’s environment highlights. “The answer should never be either or, it should always be both.”
Environmental groups note, however, that the settlement was the result of a long negotiation that began before LePage was elected, and that it was announced by Pattie Aho, the former oil lobbyist and LePage’s controversial appointment to lead the state Department of Environmental Protection.
LePage’s other environmental wins tend to focus on unfair competitive advantage and natural resources extraction, like increasing the penalties for illegal elver fishing, and efforts to rebuild Maine’s white-tailed deer population.
His plan to save deer hunting, which once generated $200 million a year in rural Maine, shows how those wins are obscured by other environmental negatives. The effort could have helped LePage earn top marks this fall from a major hunting and fishing group if not for his opposition to Maine’s conservation bond program. Instead, the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine gave Mills an A heading in its voter guide.
National environmental groups have gone to court to push the federal government to overhaul lobstering rules to protect the right whale, which is on the brink of extinction. Lobstermen say the rules would sink them, but won’t save the whale, arguing there’s no proof Maine fishing gear has ever killed a right whale.
Whale advocates say there is rarely any rope left on a whale discovered dead from entanglement injuries caused by fishing ropes, and when there is, it’s almost impossible to link back to a fishery. Maine started requiring lobstermen to mark their rope a state-specific color, purple, in 2020.
In spite of being supported by well-heeled national environmental groups, Mills sides with the lobstermen in this fight, not the whale advocates.
She has testified on the industry’s behalf at regulatory hearings and hired outside lawyers with extensive Endangered Species Act experience to represent Maine in the courts, but has nevertheless been booed at lobster rallies.
That’s partly because Mills has been an outspoken supporter of developing wind power to grow Maine’s renewable energy portfolio, signing the contract for the nation’s first floating offshore wind project and submitting an application for a University of Maine research array of 12 floating wind turbines.
Lobstermen don’t want to deliver up any fishing territory, and worry about the impacts of both sound and chemical pollution from turbines, repairs and accidents on their resource. In response to their criticism, Mills signed legislation banning offshore wind projects in state waters. But lobstermen remain skeptical.
Lobstermen also cried foul when LePage joined the Outer Continental Shelf Governors Coalition to push for offshore oil and gas exploration in the Atlantic despite concerns that oil spills could harm the lobster population. Mills pulled Maine from the coalition when she took office.
Maine farmers, meanwhile, are deeply concerned about contamination from so-called forever chemicals.
Mills has earmarked $100 million to study this issue, cleanup contamination and help those with tainted drinking wells and fields. LePage agrees the state “owns the issue” because it approved the spreading of tainted sludge.
LePage’s biggest complaint about Maine’s PFAS is the suggestion that farmers whose properties are tainted by these chemicals consider installing solar panels if there is no suitable crop available to grow there. Those farms should be growing food to help keep grocery prices down, he said.
LePage also has argued the Mills administration’s delay in approving a key water quality certificate needed to relicense the Shawmut Dam outside Waterville is putting the needs of fish – in this case, the Atlantic salmon – ahead of foresters, or the Sappi paper mill.
The Mills administration initially planned to recommend the dam’s removal to help restore endangered Atlantic salmon in one of the few places left they can spawn, but when Sappi said removal would lead to the mill’s closure, Mills changed said she wouldn’t allow that to happen. The certification is still pending.

Video games may not be the safe alternative to competitive or high-risk sports for children who have or are susceptible to cardiac arrhythmia
Playing video games can potentially threaten the lives of children who are predisposed to cardiac arrhythmias, says an new international study, believed to be the first research into sudden deaths that occur during electronic gaming.

Out of 22 children who experienced a cardiac incident while playing video games, seven had a previous cardiac diagnosis, while 12 were diagnosed with a cardiac condition afterwards. A diagnosis has not been made in the remaining three patients.
Of the 22, six kids went into cardiac arrest. Four died. Their ages ranged from seven to 16.
The study came about after the small and tight-knit international community of experts in inherited heart rhythm problems started noticing cases where patients went into cardiac incident while playing video games, said Dr. Shubhayan Sanatani, one of the study’s authors and head of cardiology at B.C. Children’s Hospital.

An international study involving about a dozen centres around the world was launched, drawing from their own cases plus another four identified from a systematic literature review.
“Given the large number of centres approached for cases across the world, it is clear that this phenomenon is uncommon, but it is clearly prevalent internationally and may represent a meaningful issue in children with arrhythmic conditions,” said the study.
Sanatani cautioned against over-interpreting the findings, given the small trial size.
“But I do think it’s an interesting signal,” one that should make physicians consider whether to counsel patients about the possible stress presented by video games for susceptible patients.

Sanatani said he would now have a conversation with patients and families about safety precautions around electronic gaming.
According to the study, out of the 13 cases where researchers had information on the type of game being played at the time of the cardiac incident, eight were playing a war game.
Out of the seven cases where researchers knew the stage of play, in six the players had just won or lost, while one was fighting with a sibling for the electronic game controller at the time of the event.
The finding is an indication video games may not be a safe alternative to competitive or high-risk physical sports for children with heart conditions, said one expert.
“Video gaming was something I previously thought would be an alternative ‘safe activity’,” study author Christian Turner, of the Heart Centre for Children in Sydney, said in a statement.

EXTROVERTS are better in bed but are more likely to suffer with obesity, a medical study has claimed.
Research from around the world have found particular personality traits can have both a positive and negative impact on your health.
Studies show there is no “perfect” personality with every trait having both benefits and drawbacks.
While outgoing and expressive extroverts maybe the life and soul of a party their habits also put them at greater risk of developing obesity.
A German study published earlier this year found extroverts were among the best personalities at providing pleasure both for themselves and their partner, MailOnline reports.
The team carried out a meta-analysis on eight other studies gauging both performance and partner loyalty across the traits.
Extroverts were found to be great between the sheets, but not quite the most loyal bunch.
The researchers said: “Personality not only shapes a person’s preferences for sex.
“It also shapes a person’s behaviour in a sexual relationship. This behaviour has an influence on the quality and quantity of sex and, hence, on the sexual well-being of the person and his or her partner.
“Personality shapes sexual communication and information sharing, the way dissonant sexual preferences of the partners are handled, and the extent to which the person is committed to promises made to their partner.”
They added: “While extraversion and openness to experience help realise a mutually beneficial sex life, we find no evidence that they have a commitment value.”
The commitment value indicated how emotionally committed a person had to be to their partner in order to have quality sex with them.
German researchers in 2019 gathered data from nearly 20,000 people on both their personality type and body mass index (BMI).
They found that extroversion, along with neuroticism, corrected the highest with rates of obesity.
Researchers said this was likely because someone with a more outgoing, agreeable personality was more likely to eat snacks and take part in activities which would lead them becoming more obese.
A research team from the National Institutes of Health in 2012 had similar findings.
They wrote at the time: “Body weight, in turn, reflects our behaviours and lifestyle and contributes to the way we perceive ourselves and others.
“Participants higher on Neuroticism or Extraversion... had higher BMI; these associations replicated across body fat, waist, and hip circumference.”
Extroverts are said to make up around half of the US population.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says 40 per cent of the nation is obese, and 70 per cent of the population is overweight.
People with a competitive drive may gain benefits in the workplace but they could be harming their hearts due to the increased amount of stress.
It was found that people who take on multiple tasks at once have poorer emotional control and will rush to meet the many demands they take on.
Dr Rachel Bollaert, a physiologist at Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, explained that this can lead to multiple heart issues down the line.
"In those that have the Type A, typically we see individuals having higher rates of potentially chronic diseases like heart disease, or coronary already artery disease," she said.
People who are hard-working, organised and detail-orientated were found to have the best health.
Conscientiousness is associated with people who have greater self-control and self-discipline.
Studies have linked conscientious personality types to healthier eating and more physical activity.
Others have linked it to the avoidance of poor behaviours like smoking or excess alcohol consumption.
All of these factors significantly decrease a person's risk of suffering multiple health problems, like cancer, heart disease, diabetes and more.
Researchers in Tokyo, Japan, found that men who reported more pessimism about the future were more likely to have a receding hair line or thinning found around their head.
There could be some benefits for being pessimistic too.
They are often more cautious in life - as they fear the worse when making decisions.
As a result, studies find that they are often more prepared for disaster and other negative scenarios others may not be prepared for.

This just in: puppies combat stress.
While not news to dog owners, research says looking at and petting a pup can help increase neurons in the prefrontal cortex – the emotion regulating part of the brain, according to a new study.
Scientists in the study, published in the journal PLOS One, say finding out more about how dogs help people deal with depression and anxiety could lead to better treatments and clinical therapy involving animals.
Researchers found the puppy positivity effect remained with humans even after the dogs were gone but was reduced when stuffed animals replaced the live ones.
“The present study demonstrates prefrontal brain activity in healthy subjects increased with a rise in interactional closeness with a dog or a stuffed animal, but especially in contact with the dog the activation is stronger,” the study’s lead author, Rahel Marti of the University of Basel, Switzerland, told British news service SWNS.
“This indicates that interactions with a dog might activate more attentional processes and elicit stronger emotional arousal than comparable non-living stimuli.”

Dr. Riaz Baber has never had the displeasure of experiencing a migraine headache.
“I consider myself lucky that I never had one,” the 76-year-old Naperville-based psychiatrist and researcher said. “About 15 percent of adults have had it at one time or another. I’m lucky I’m not one of those 15 percent.”
But after logging 40 years at Edward Hospital as a psychiatrist, he has seen the misery and suffering it causes and he has also seen how bad it gets in particular for children.
“Other headaches are severe, but migraines are traditionally severe with physical symptoms,” he said. “The child will look pale, may have nausea, may have vomiting, but very importantly, they will be very sensitive to light, sound and motion. Every small little thing will bother them.
“They will tend to go to a dark place and go to sleep and that’s how most kids deal with it. They want to lie totally still in dark place. No music. No nothing.”
Baber, who heads the Baber Research Group, has taken an active role in trying to treat and prevent migraines. He is in the midst of a national study to determine if the drug Rimegepant can be an effective solution to preventing them.
The study has been underway for eight months and will likely last another year before they have enough data to know if the drug can taken to the Food and Drug Administration for possible approval.
There are more than 90 sites in the nation participating in the country.
The World Health Organization says migraines are one of the 10 most disabling medical illnesses and 8% to 15% of high school teens and 4% to 11% of elementary school-aged children get them.
“Migraine can be debilitating in younger individuals in younger individuals and it often goes undiagnosed because they have a more difficult time understanding and expressing their pain,” Baber said.
“There are limited treatment options available for migraine for children and adolescents so we are hopeful Rimegepant may help them get relief and return more quickly to their daily lives.”
Locally, any child between the ages of 6 and 17 who has had one to six migraines for at least six months is eligible for the study.
The first step is to call the research center at 630-272-4844. After a answering few questions to see if the child qualifies, he or she is invited with both parents to meet with Baber.
After medical screenings, the placebo controlled clinical study begins. The length of the study depends on the child’s frequency of suffering the headaches.
“After they take the first pill, they come back and we see them for safety purposes and see if there are any side effects and review how the medication responded,” Baber said. “We deliver them one more set of medication to treat another headache at home and they come back a week later.
“The medication is on a double-blind basis, which means I will not know if they are taking the placebo or the real medication. That’s how all the science researches are designed.”
It’s going to take years for this medication to be approved so patience is a key, he said. But it will be worth it.
“If this medication gets approval from the FDA after the research, then we will have one more medication to treat our children who are really miserable that they have the headache,” Baber said.
