Could This Account for some Paranormal Claims?

Oct. 30, 2008: During the time it takes you to read this article, something will happen high overhead that until recently many scientists didn't believe in. A magnetic portal will open, linking Earth to the sun 93 million miles away. Tons of high-energy particles may flow through the opening before it closes again, around the time you reach the end of the page.
"It's called a flux transfer event or 'FTE,'" says space physicist David Sibeck of the Goddard Space Flight Center. "Ten years ago I was pretty sure they didn't exist, but now the evidence is incontrovertible."

I love reading things like this, and Fred Alan Wolf, but just makes me crazier!:-)

I wished that the scientists in the article could've told us what benefits we're getting from the FTE's.

...and what is the reasoning behind "every 8 minutes". Why every *8* minutes?? Is there a significance for this?
Light, from the sun, takes about 8 minutes to reach the earth. One of those trivial pieces of information I learned in Elementary school, that suddenly bubbled to the surface!
I think that the use of the term "every 8 minutes" is just a rounded figure.
To verify that information, I looked up "light from the sun", and found the following quote on some physics site:
"The distance from the Earth to the Sun varies because the Earth's orbit about the Sun is elliptical.At it's closest, the distance is 91,402,000 miles and it's farthest distance it is 94,512,000 miles.This gives an average distance of 92,957,000 miles. Light travels at 186,282 miles per second. Dividing the average distance by the speed of light gives 499.01225 seconds which is 8.3168708 minutes."
