From Quatrains of Michel of Nostradamus:
Centurie III Q 34
When the eclipse of the Sun will then be,
The monster will be seen in full day:
Quite otherwise will one interpret it,
High price unguarded: none will have foreseen it .
The great star will burn for seven days,
The cloud will cause two suns to appear :
The big mastiff will howl all night
When the great pontiff will change country.
CENTURY 10 - 74
THE GAMES OF SLAUGHTER
The year of the great seventh number accomplished,
it will appear at the time of the games of slaughter,
not far from the age of the great millennium ,
when the dead will come out of their graves.

It's September 10th, and nothing happened. Hopefully this will serve as a lesson as to why we shouldn't freak out over things we know nothing of.
The protons are made up of quarks and gluons. Gluons are the particles that transmit the forces between the quarks ("gluing" them together). On average, each quark carries only about 10% of the proton energy, and each gluon even less.
Cosmic Ray Energies and Acceleration: The energy of cosmic rays is usually measured in units of MeV, for mega-electron volts, or GeV, for giga-electron volts. (One electron volt is the energy gained when an electron is accelerated through a potential difference of 1 volt). Most galactic cosmic rays have energies between 100 MeV (corresponding to a velocity for protons of 43% of the speed of light) and 10 GeV (corresponding to 99.6% of the speed of light). The number of cosmic rays with energies beyond 1 GeV decreases by about a factor of 50 for every factor of 10 increase in energy. Over a wide energy range the number of particles per m2 per steradian per second with energy greater than E (measured in GeV) is given approximately by N(>E) = k(E + 1)-a, where k ~ 5000 per m2 per steradian per second and a ~1.6. The highest energy cosmic rays measured to date have had more than 1020 eV, equivalent to the kinetic energy of a baseball traveling at approximately 100 mph! It is believed that most galactic cosmic rays derive their energy from supernova explosions, which occur approximately once every 50 years in our Galaxy. To maintain the observed intensity of cosmic rays over millions of years requires that a few percent of the more than 1051 ergs released in a typical supernova explosion be converted to cosmic rays. There is considerable evidence that cosmic rays are accelerated as the shock waves from these explosions travel through the surrounding interstellar gas. The energy contributed to the Galaxy by cosmic rays (about 1 eV per cm3) is about equal to that contained in galactic magnetic fields, and in the thermal energy of the gas that pervades the space between the stars.
