BUFFALO, N.Y. The murder trial of former Molly's Pub manager Jeffrey Basil is scheduled to begin in January, but defense attorneys for the defendant were in court arguing the murder charge is not appropriate for the crime. Basil is being held without bail after being arraigned in August on a superseding indictment charging Basil with 1st degree manslaughter and 2nd degree murder in the death of 28-year old William Sager, Jr. Prosecutors say the Basil caused fatal head injuries to the Air National Guardsman after pushing Sager down a flight of stairs inside Molly's Pub on Main Street in Buffalo during the early morning hours of May 11, 2014.

It's a-comin': a "monster" sunspot is steadily rotating around the Sun's southern hemisphere and will soon be in position to fire flares and CMEs in our direction - and this past weekend master solar photographer Alan Friedman captured it on camera! The image above was taken in full-spectrum visible light on Sunday, Oct. 19 by Alan from his backyard in Buffalo, New York. Sunspots 2186 , 2187 , 2193 and the enormous AR2192 are easily visible as dark blotches - "cooler" regions on the Sun's surface where upwelling magnetic fields interrupt the convective processes that drive the Sun's energy output.
