The Memorial Day edition of WWE Raw will offer glimpses of the brutality promised at the Extreme Rules. The go-home show will give the red brand one final chance to sell fans on Sunday's pay-per-view. That's sure to mean violent confrontations aplenty. And two bouts lined up for Monday night will give the competitors in the Fatal 5-Way match a preview of that clash. Two former members of The Shield will collide. Finn Balor will have to outlast both Bray Wyatt and Samoa Joe. Plus, the tag team title bout and Raw Women's Championship match will get some added hype. And Greenville, South Carolina, will host it all. Will we see The Hardy Boyz make their anticipated transformation? Could we see an injured star back in action? Backstage news and the Raw preview on WWE.com help answer those questions before the pre-Extreme Rules show hits the airwaves on Monday at 8 p.

By Mike McRae This Wednesday, NASA will officially announce its intention to launch a probe that will dip inside the Sun's atmosphere, calling it the first ever mission to touch the Sun. The Solar Probe Plus mission will have to cope with temperatures and radiation unlike any other probe, but the data it will collect in the process will help astronomers predict solar storms and provide clues on some of the deepest mysteries surrounding our closest star. In 1976, a 370-kilogram (815-pound) block of instruments called Helios 2 came within about 43 million kilometres (27 million miles) of the Sun's surface in its mission to study solar winds and cosmic rays. Our world has since grown ever more dependent on a network of technology – both in orbit and on our planet's surface – that's vulnerable to a threat we barely understand. Not only can our modern technology suffer enormous damage from extreme solar activity, humans who might one day live outside our atmosphere will also need protection from severe winds of charged particles and radiation.

At least 11 people died when a severe thunderstorm hit the Russian capital Moscow, health officials say. Hundreds of trees were toppled by the storm, and more than 50 people sought medical help. Reports say that electrical cables were damaged as Moscow was lashed with high winds, hail and torrential rain. The winds of up to 110 km/h (70 mph) were described by meteorologists as extremely rare for the city, and caused structural damage to buildings. If the death toll of 11 is confirmed - and some officials give a lower figure - it would be the deadliest storm in the city for more than 100 ...

4 Some researchers suggest that although the Sun was very active in the last few decades, it has in recent years gone into a quiescence period. Some even claim we might be headed for another “ice age” (whether a mini or major ice age). 5 I feel this is an invalid extrapolation of the limited data we have. Activated Sun It could be that the Sun is once again going through a period of extreme variability, manifesting as a pattern of highs and lows in solar activity. That is, we should not extrapolate from a few years (or even a couple of decades) of relatively low solar activity to the conclusion that we are imminently entering another ice age. Indeed, the Sun may suddenly become active again, or it might undergo a major solar outburst even in the midst of an overall period of relative inactivity. The 1859 Carrington Event occurred between a solar minimum and a solar maximum during a rather mediocre solar cycle; based on short-term methods of analyses, it is unlikely to have been predicted even with modern techniques (at the time, scientists were not even aware of the modern concept of major solar outbursts so no one was even attempting such predictions).

Gypsy Moth The reason for the scheduled spraying is due to the over-infestation of the gypsy moth and their natural behaviour towards defoliating trees during their caterpillar phase. Repeated leaf loss stresses out the trees and eventually leads them to death. As described by the City of Toronto: during outbreaks the caterpillars are an extreme nuisance; trees lose their foliage, caterpillars crawl everywhere, and their droppings rain from trees. It seems as though the City has tried less invasive ways only to find it didn't produce the results it hoped for. Has anyone noticed an increase in allergies or experienced any of these effects? Have you seen these helicopters spraying beyond the hours they said they would? Are you for the aerial spraying of pesticides? Let us know! Stay safe.

Some women take up kickboxing to blow off some steam following a breakup. But Kourtney Kardashian took a different approach! On last night's episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians , the scorned mother of three let off some steam while swinging an ex as part of a bizarre test set up by scheming little sister Khloe , 32. Sick of Kourtney's extreme indecisiveness and flaky behavior, Khloe called the Los Angeles Fire Department to assist her in teaching the 38-year-old a lesson. PHOTOS: 20 Most Ridiculous Moments From The Kardashians' Reality Shows The firefighters took the sisters and overbearing momager Kris , 61, to a (very fake) burning home and gave Kourtney a series of decisions in order to save the day. At one point, they told her to break down a roof with an ax. At first, the reality star put little effort into the task. But then Khloe put some fire into her swing with some words of encouragement.

The Japanese House exhibition at London's Barbican doesn't offer solutions to the housing crisis, says Owen Hatherley , but it does show what's possible when architects respond to extreme change and instability. In most places, certainly in Britain, the point of the private house is stability and predictability . Increasing in correlation with the rise of the house as an overvalued investment vehicle is an extreme conservatism about what that commodity actually looks like. So in order for the confidence trick that a mediocre mass-produced house should cost, say, £250,000 to be effective, the house has to look like a house in the most obvious and tedious way – bedrooms, garden, load-bearing walls, pitched roof, non-functional chimney, all need to be in the expected place. One of the many interesting things about Barbican's The Japanese House exhibition is that the houses resemble cultural commodities such as cars, stereos, films and cartoons, with an apparent indifference to what a house ought to look like.

And if necessary, they can hit the ground hard on landing.” As Lenore Dai — a chemical engineer and the director of the ASU’s School for Engineering of Matter, Transport and Energyexplained, the design also makes the SESE well suited for exploring extreme environments — like Europa’s icy surface. “We’re excited at the opportunity to develop electrolytes and polymers beyond their traditional temperature limits,” she said . “This project also exemplifies collaboration across disciplines.” The SESE can also take a beating without compromising its sensor readings, which was tested when the team struck it with a sledgehammer and found that it still worked afterwards. According to seismologist Edward Garnero, who is also a member of the SESE team, this will come in handy. Landers typically have six to eight legs, he claims , which could be mated with seismometers to turn them into scientific instruments.

"It doesn't have to be this way, a vote for the Liberal Democrats can change Britain's future and we can avoid this extreme Brexit that Theresa May is pursuing," he said. A spokesman for UKIP said in a statement that the European Union "has relied on the commitment of the US and the UK through NATO to defend it". "In that time most of our EU allies have failed to maintain their defence spending expecting that we were going to keep on paying forever," he said. "The rest of the EU has been undependable for decades, it's a bit rich of them to complain now. Never when the storm clouds have gathered has the UK turned its back," the spokesman added. "Being dependable does not mean being a pushover Mrs Merkel, it means doing what we believe to be right for our country, and by extension, the world".

It's been almost two months since Finn Balor's return to WWE, and his ascension to the top of the roster is infinitely slower than his lightning-fast rise upon his debut in 2016. Since returning, Balor has taken pinfall losses to The Miz and Roman Reigns. It's a stark contrast from his brief undefeated streak that launched him to the Universal Championship last summer. He is mired in a star-studded Fatal 5-Way at Extreme Rules, but the main event's smallest competitor suddenly seems to have a slight edge to face Brock Lesnar at Great Balls of Fire. Monday on Raw, Balor was the beneficiary a one-on-one conversation with Paul Heyman. Lesnar's advocate did everything he could to sell Balor as a viable candidate to upend the field at Extreme Rules, and nobody needed the vote of confidence more. Of the five WWE Superstars vying to become No. 1 ContenderBalor, Seth Rollins, Bray Wyatt , Samoa Joe and Roman Reignsthe Irishman is the most uninspiring on the mic.
