A 6.4 magnitude earthquake south of New Zealand on Tuesday evening was close to, if not on, the subduction zone where the Australian Plate dips below the Pacific Plate. The 7pm quake was a little more than 200km to the southwest of the South Island, and “relatively shallow’, within the upper 35km, GNS Science duty seismologist, Dr Bill Fry said.

Big sunspot AR2665 has decayed a little during the past 24 hours. Nevertheless, it still has an unstable magnetic field that poses a threat for moderately strong solar flares.

Trump’s War on the Big Boss of Fake News
Zucker’s plan for CNN was simple. Get out of the news business. Or as he put it, “news is how you define it.” Fake, real; it’s all a matter of definition.

Derivatives Trading Legend: “As Little As A 4% Decline In One Day Could Start A Critical Crash”
“… one panel proposed that many of these passive portfolios can be synthetically constructed as long an Index plus short a +/- 4% out-of-the-money strangle.
