Sunspots reaching 1,000-year high

by C1ay / April 9, 2007 9:58 PM PDT

A new analysis shows that the Sun is more active now than it has been at anytime in the previous 1,000 years.

Scientists based at the Institute for Astronomy in Zurich used ice cores from Greenland to construct a picture of our star's activity in the past.

They say that over the last century the number of sunspots rose at the same time that the Earth's climate became steadily warmer.

More at the BBC...

How could this be? Didn't someone remember to ask the sun to sign the Kyoto Treaty?

And much much worse than all the humans dying, all the animals, trees and plants will die one day too. Yes! It's true!

I don't want to scare anyone, but there is even the possibility that some day the Earth itself will be destroyed!!!!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
