I have these as open tabs

1. [link to cnt.rm.ingv.it]

2. [link to cnt.rm.ingv.it]

3. [link to cnt.rm.ingv.it]


The 1st one is where all the "big"(from 5 mag and up) or significate Quakes get post.

The 2nd link is where they calculated if there is going to be a destructive tsunami, its an EArthquake Rapid Location sYstem with EStimation of Tsunamigenesis.
Here is a link to see how the EArthquake Rapid Location sYstem with EStimation of Tsunamigenesis calculated the Japan Tsunami
[link to alomax.free.fr]

This is a small video of how the EArthquake Rapid Location sYstem with EStimation of Tsunamigenesis graph looked when the quake hit and the calculation of the Tsunami.
[link to s3.rm.ingv.it]

The 3rd link is where all the movements/EQ's are posted small and big some don't make it to the main EQ sites some do ,now you have to click Channel(station) it usually has letters like this :AU_MTN( this is a station for Australia Manton Dam, Northern Territor) [link to www.iris.edu] to those letters there is another set of letters that are always the same like this: HF(BRB)
if you click on HF or BRB it will take you to the seismograph for those stations [link to alomax.free.fr] and there you can see if it was a big quake or not. And like i said if you keep seeing the same station or another station around that area showing movements/EQ's around the same area over and over,then it means that there might be a chance for a big EQ there.
I hope this makes sense,i'm a bit tired. And please excuse all my typo's.

NOAA CONSIDERS EFFECTS OF ARCTIC OIL AND GAS ACTIVITIES ON MARINE MAMMALS AND ALASKA NATIVE COMMUNITIES

NOAA announced today that it is seeking comments on a supplemental draft environmental impact statement (EIS) for oil and gas activities in the Arctic Ocean. The draft, developed in collaboration with the Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM), includes analysis on how a broader range of potential offshore oil and gas activities could affect the environment, with a specific focus on marine mammals and the Alaska Native communities that depend on the animals for food and cultural traditions.

Timber Hawkeye has a very simple guide to happiness - 2 words: be grateful. Gratitude turns what we have into enough. In this TEDx talk, Hawkeye observes that all of our suffering is self-inflicted, and that we have a misguided notion that happiness is something we have to "pursue." He shares some simple prescriptions for inner peace and tranquility: slow down, sit. There is nothing you need to buy; nowhere you need to go. Just spend a few minutes each day taking inventory of everything in your life that is worth appreciating.

I can tell y'all....from personal experience...this changed my life.

It was as if the stepping stones for a good life began to fall on the ground in front of me and all I had to do was step!! Now...when I get stressed or things go badly....I start listing all the things I'm grateful for....I can be caught in traffic....or I run into an unexpected delay....and I start the list. It is remarkably calming...and while my kiddos think I'm totally crazy at times....they are learning. I also find that when hard times come...and we all have um....they just don't seem so bad because I've got so much to be grateful for.

We were talking-about the space between us all
And the people-who hide themselves behind a wall of illusion
Never glimpse the truth-then it's far too late-when they pass away.
We were talking-about the love we all could share-when we find it
To try our best to hold it there-with our love
With our love-we could save the world-if they only knew.
Try to realize it's all within yourself
No-one else can make you change
And to see you're really only very small,
And life flows ON within you and without you.
We were talking-about the love that's gone so cold and the people,
Who gain the world and lose their soul-
They don't know-they can't see-are you one of them?
When you've seen beyond yourself-then you may find, peace of mind,
Is waiting there-
And the time will come when you see
we're all one, and life flows on within you and without you.

Hey FOG,

I just turned on the news here in Southern IN and caught the end of a news story where there were explosions underground yesterday. I came straight here did not search if anyone else had posted it. On the news they say no one is still able to get underground to find out what the cause is. I will look for the news station online.

We were getting some carbon monoxide readings in there so we brought in a ventilator truck to clear out the smoke," Lt. Col. Nally said.

Several downtown employees couldn't clock in because of the buckled pavement. "It was right in front of Republic Plaza so I knew I would not be going to work today," Peggy Perry said.

Bryan Scott watched as firefighters kept their distance from the flames. "To see that, and see the roadway around it broken up - it was a pretty powerful explosion," Scott said.

No injuries were reported. There was no immediate word on the cause of the fire.

Hi everyone! AKO, your post the other day about Monsanto reminded me of something I've been wondering about for a long time. Maybe Shad might know, too, or at least y'all might have a good guess.

I know the seed companies have "short season" seeds for areas like Alaska, because of the short growing season. Our season for some veggies are split because of the high heat in the summer. Do you guys think some of the seeds for shorter seasons might work here, if planted early enough? I hope I'm explaining this properly. Our mid-summer is murder on tomato plants. They end up not producing until almost fall and then it's sometimes too late.

We have the same problem here. 100+ temps on a garden are killers for your veggies. Well, peppers love it.

Last year I had wonderful tomatoes, first time ever I managed to grow them and got more than 6 tomatoes. They were planted in an area that was shaded in the afternoon sun. Sure wish this was done on purpose but can't take credit for it. A new raised garden bed will be planted in an area that will only receive sun light until about 1pm then the shade from our fence will take over.

Just a thought for ya. I know when we lived in Austin, a lot of gardeners said they did the same thing, planted in areas that their gardens were shaded after 1-2pm. Never tried to garden there as the fire ants were horrible.

the Foks running hot...and we definately have some outside pressure on the mag....(thinking it may be connected to the farside release the other day...

they did release a KP4 warning as well...

"Space Weather Message Code: WARK04
Serial Number: 2060
Issue Time: 2013 Mar 23 2127 UTC

WARNING: Geomagnetic K-index of 4 expected
Valid From: 2013 Mar 23 2128 UTC
Valid To: 2013 Mar 24 0500 UTC
Warning Condition: Onset
Potential Impacts: Area of impact primarily poleward of 65 degrees Geomagnetic Latitude.
Induced Currents - Weak power grid fluctuations can occur.
Aurora - Aurora may be visible at high latitudes such as Canada and Alaska."

[link to www.swpc.noaa.gov]


the magnometer is showing a nasty line at around the 2.5...
[link to www.haarp.alaska.edu]
also indicative of some outside pressure....watching the EQ activity, as im expecting a 6.5+ somewhere in the next 24 hrs...especially when combined with this mag chart...

[link to www.swpc.noaa.gov]

Tecs alittle hot.. [link to www.ips.gov.au] watching Japan and Indonesia...

suns been relatively quiet, but im starting to notice that they seem to take down the flux monitor everytime, the sun seems to 'die'..watch it..every now and then the reading goes down...below B levels into A's...at this time, the monitor drops out...(mind u, it does it on the up sometimes as well)..

still looking.

 Quoting: nerdrage88sasr


Good to see you Nerd!
Any thoughts on this?

Since their discovery over 50 years ago, the Earth's Van Allen radiation belts have been considered to consist of two distinct zones of trapped, highly energetic charged particles. The outer zone is comprised predominantly of mega-electron volt (MeV) electrons that wax and wane in intensity on time scales ranging from hours to days depending primarily on external forcing by the solar wind. The spatially separated inner zone is comprised of commingled high-energy electrons and very energetic positive ions (mostly protons), the latter being stable in intensity levels over years to decades. In situ energy-specific and temporally resolved spacecraft observations reveal an isolated third ring, or torus, of high-energy (E > 2 MeV) electrons that formed on 2 September 2012 and persisted largely unchanged in the geocentric radial range of 3.0 to ~3.5 Earth radii for over four weeks before being disrupted (and virtually annihilated) by a powerful interplanetary shock wave passage.

Thanks, WA. You'd think after 20 years down here, I'd have it down pat, but I've only been able to garden for a few years. I've just about got my manufactured shade figured out. We don't have enough shady spots without creating it!

We're not ready to do raised beds just yet. Right now, I'm planting in our front yard so we can amend the soil for grass in the fall. Thankfully, we live in the sticks, so no one will care!LOL I have a spot I want to put raised beds in, but hubs isn't sold on it yet.

It's hard to garden anymore with all the extremes in climate. DH said something about putting up a simple pergola over another area that the plants refuse to grow due to the intense heat. You wouldn't think we would have that problem here in Colorado, but the sun can be even more intense here than in TX because we are so much higher in elevation. The one time of year I HATE - middle of summer!!!!

I know. We spent some time in Alb. NM. Sorry, I hate to spell that!LOL I almost always get it wrong! The sun was awful in the summer, even the temps were pretty nice. I wasn't ready for that. I don't remember how many bottles of water I went through, but it was ALOT!

We were given a partial roll of weedblocker fabric. I don't recommend it for it's stated purpose...it just doesn't work. I'm going to use it for shade. When I run out of that, I'll buy more real shade fabric. I'm glad it's getting easier to find and a little cheaper than when it first came out. We covered our chicken run with it a few years ago and it was wonderful for that.

While the pattern for each plate boundary earthquake was unique, on average, the seismicity along the faults was nearly constant until about two months before a big earthquake, when there was a small but noticeable increase, the researchers found. Seismicity refers to the geographic and time distribution of earthquakes.

You could grow them there when I lived in TX I grew everything in buckets on porch moved them around took advantage of sun and shade. Also watered real well early AM or late evening did tomatoes in hanging baskets too (pull off extra leaves and pinch suckers also use Epsom salt on all makes them hardy) [link to www.saltworks.us] and all other veggies that works really well also I use 5 gallon pails now drill holes and hang from hooks.

You can grow anything in these cukes, squash I even grew gourds and pumpkins make sure you have a good dirt/compost/peat mix.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I tried container gardening last year, but no luck. I'll check out the links in a bit! Big hugs for you!!

Re: F.O.G.
Hi everyone! AKO, your post the other day about Monsanto reminded me of something I've been wondering about for a long time. Maybe Shad might know, too, or at least y'all might have a good guess.

I know the seed companies have "short season" seeds for areas like Alaska, because of the short growing season. Our season for some veggies are split because of the high heat in the summer. Do you guys think some of the seeds for shorter seasons might work here, if planted early enough? I hope I'm explaining this properly. Our mid-summer is murder on tomato plants. They end up not producing until almost fall and then it's sometimes too late.

We have the same problem here. 100+ temps on a garden are killers for your veggies. Well, peppers love it.

Last year I had wonderful tomatoes, first time ever I managed to grow them and got more than 6 tomatoes. They were planted in an area that was shaded in the afternoon sun. Sure wish this was done on purpose but can't take credit for it. A new raised garden bed will be planted in an area that will only receive sun light until about 1pm then the shade from our fence will take over.

Just a thought for ya. I know when we lived in Austin, a lot of gardeners said they did the same thing, planted in areas that their gardens were shaded after 1-2pm. Never tried to garden there as the fire ants were horrible.

I've known a couple of families in florida that have biodynamic gardens that grow quite well. They only use nonhybrid seeds. It doesn't usually get into 100's like in texas, but the thing is creating symbiotic systems, building the soil and organisms, the plants are hardier and more resistant to disease and even to surviving insects.

I haven't seen the post on monsanto, but without getting side tracked into the potential disasters of gom'd food products on human body and health, I would urge people to avoid gmo'd seeds since once the seed varieties are mutated out of existence by gmo'd cross pollination, and only patented gmo'd nonreproducing seeds are left, monsanto or whoever owns the patents, controls your food supply. Seed varieties can also be eliminated over time by campaigns that involve spraying arial herbicides that only gmo'd plants are designed to survive.

I remember seeing an article in Forbes Magazine in 2007 most likely, that was on the destruction of most of the lousiana rice crops in whatever year the article was about, due to the contamination from gmo'd rice that was in experimental fields. And at least at one university that was working with the seeds, they had doubled the width of their required perimeter barrier ( of course they and anyone knows the seeds can be spread by other means.)

Re: F.O.G.
It's hard to garden anymore with all the extremes in climate. DH said something about putting up a simple pergola over another area that the plants refuse to grow due to the intense heat. You wouldn't think we would have that problem here in Colorado, but the sun can be even more intense here than in TX because we are so much higher in elevation. The one time of year I HATE - middle of summer!!!!

The people I knew that farmed a garden several years ago had noted also an increasing harshness of the external environment on the "skin" of the plants, and that the pollinators were increasingly arriving out of phase with the plant stage appropriate for pollination and sometimes the insects they might feast on.

Many 3+ quakes tonight in the Canary Islands. This is not the normal eq pattern I've seen over the past two events there.

I've been following this quite close, this is getting serious.
“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.” – Carl Sagan
