Solar storm not nearly as bad as could have been

 Our high-tech world seems to have easily weathered a solar storm that didn't quite live up to its advance billing.

While some experts think the threat from the solar storm passed by Thursday afternoon, space weather forecasters said it's still too early to relax. That's because there's a chance the storm's effects could continue and even intensify through Friday morning.

And while this solar storm may have fizzled, others may be lining up in the cosmic shooting gallery in the coming, days month and year, the scientists agree.

"It looks to me like it's over," NASA solar physicist David Hathaway said late Thursday afternoon, after noticing a drop in a key magnetic reading.

That conclusion is premature, said Doug Biesecker, a space scientist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Space Weather Prediction Center in Boulder, Colo., which forecasts solar storms. He pointed to an increase in a different magnetic field measurement.

Business News: India on a tightrope as traders head to Iran

A major Indian trade delegation headed to Iran on Friday to explore "huge" commercial opportunities created by US-led sanctions against the Islamic republic over its disputed nuclear plans.
 
The mission sees India walking a diplomatic tightrope as it seeks more business from Iran while managing a growing partnership with the United States and maintaining good relations with Israel, a key arms supplier.
 
US lawmakers and pro-Israel groups have accused New Delhi of undermining American and European efforts to isolate Tehran and force it to abandon its nuclear programme.
 
An attack that severely injured an Israeli diplomat in New Delhi last month -- blamed by Israel on Iran -- has further complicated matters.
 
The trade team will be in Iran until March 14 and expects "a lot of business" from the trip, said Anand Seth, spokesman for the government-backed Federation of Indian Export Organisations, which is leading the delegation.
 
"It's a big market for Indian exporters," Seth told AFP.

Actor Prabhu Deva gets a makeover from Pompi!

Prabhu Deva has completed almost 90 percent of Rowdy Rathore and started work as hero in Remo directed AnyBody Can Dance(ABCD) India's first dance musical in 3D.

He has lost almost 6 kilos, got a fantastic make-over from Pompi who is Kareena Kapoor's personal stylist and the shooting is taking place in Mumbai. 
A source close to Prabhu Deva says that he is all set to dance after a long break and has deliberately lost weight to stay fit and is busy with practices. 
ABCD, is produced by UTV Motion Pictures and will also have Ganesh Acharya and Lauren Gottlieb in the cast. Sachin-Jigar is themusic director.
Recently Prabhu told a Mambai tabloid: "I can feel so much energy on the sets of ABCD. There are so many fantastic young dancers in this film and matching steps with them has been really fun and tough for me at the same time. I feel like a teenager being around them and it's great to be dancing again. In fact, I feel more like a dancer working in the film than being an actor."
Meanwhile, Rowdy Rathore is turning out to be one of the hottestprojects in Hindi. The film was sold for a staggering Rs 35 crore, the highest for an Akshay Kumar film till date.

well as countless celebrities, have also leant their support to
International Women's Day.
