In its latest SEC filing, 3M said on November 12, 2009, it contacted the DOJ and SEC “to voluntarily disclose . . .  an internal investigation as a result of reports it received about its subsidiary in Turkey, alleging bid rigging and bribery and other inappropriate conduct in connection with the supply of certain reflective and other materials and related services to Turkish government entities.”

Would you believe . . . ? Apparently there’s a huge solar flare happening now — three giant “coronal mass ejections” slamming into the earth and our magnetic shield. Scientist say it can disrupt technology, including power grids, communications systems, and satellites.
