Bienvenue.

The Bad Astonomy Blog is here: BA Blog (http://www.badastronomy.com/)

I searched that site for "James Allen" but saw no sign there. I don't recognize the name, but I don't read the BA Blog thoroughly enough.

Hint: the 'van allen belts'.That would be James Van Allen, and he wouldn't have posted around here since August 9, for a good reason!
