How the Japan Earthquake Shortened the Earth Day | Japan Earthquake & Tsunami | Natural Disasters, Earth Tilt & Earth's Axis

This map shows the location of the March 11, 2011 earthquake in Japan, as well as the foreshocks (dotted lines), including a 7.2-magnitude event on March 9, and aftershocks (solid lines). The size of each circle represents the magnitude of the associated quake or shock. CREDIT: USGS View full size image The massive earthquake that struck northeast Japan Friday (March 11) has shortened the length Earth's day by a fraction and shifted how the planet's mass is distributed. A new analysis of the 8.9-magnitude earthquake in Japan has found that the intense temblor has accelerated Earth's spin, shortening the length of the 24-hour day by 1.8 microseconds, according to geophysicist Richard Gross at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif.

Why Yelling Doesn't Work - Circle of Moms

When I read posts on Circle of Moms, I notice a common thread running through the questions moms post about setting limits with their children. Over and over again, moms want to know why what they’re doing isn’t working. "The Danger Zone" just might be the answer. A battle of wills, normal as it is, is one of the hardest things a parent and child deal with. Most parents believe that the battle is the child’s fault. But when I look at a battle of wills, I see two sides, each one valid, yet destined to collide with the other. Let me explain. What is the Danger Zone?

Criminals Call on New Crop of Phone Scams | Identity Theft | Smartphones & Mobile Devices | LiveScience

VoIP scams can reach landlines and mobile phone lines. CREDIT: Dreamstime Criminals are putting a new voice to the traditionally anonymous world of online crime. Scammers have taken to making calls via Skype — the popular Voice over IP (VoIP) calling software — and attempting to scare victims into downloading and installing rogue antivirus software, Brian Krebs wrote this week on his Krebs on Security blog. Skype has more than 600 million users and, like other VoIP services, is very inexpensive, giving criminals an enticing new pool from which to draw.

What Could Possibly Go Wrong: Deep-Drilling a Supervolcano | Popular Science

Fire Bomb There are few good ways to deal with living atop a supervolcano, but critics worry that drilling deep into one to study its composition could, in the worst case, cause an earthquake or eruption. Jamie Sneddon When Mt. Vesuvius erupted in A.D. 79, the people around it had little warning, and more than 10,000 of them died as a result. Bad as that was, an eruption of neighboring Campi Flegrei could be worse. As a supervolcano, it’s in the same category as Indonesia’s Mt. Tambora, whose eruption in 1815 killed 92,000 people and caused the “year without a summer.” Campi Flegrei’s eight-mile-wide caldera is so low and unassuming that much of metro Naples was built on top, and yet a full eruption would be one of the largest in human history, the kind of geological event capable of plunging the world into a minor ice age. This time, scientists are determined to give the three million residents of greater Naples abundant warning. That’s part of the

What Could Possibly Go Wrong: An Internet "Off" Switch | Popular Science

Dropped Connection Turning off the Internet could shut down financial networks, and it wouldn't be easy to turn them back on Jamie Sneddon The last time someone could shut down the Internet was probably in 1969, when it consisted of two computers. But in recent years, concerned with the possibility of a “cyberattack,” Congress has been exploring such an option. In 2009, senator Jay Rockefeller sponsored a bill to give the president the right to “order the disconnection” of “critical infrastructure information systems or networks.” That went nowhere, but now there’s Senate bill 3480, the Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act of 2010. As its sponsor, Senator Joe Lieberman, told CNN, the bill will allow for the president to order Internet service providers to “disconnect the American Internet from all traffic coming in from another foreign country.” Constructing such a switch would be extremely difficult. Borders are porous. Data packets ori

Second Green Revolution, The | Popular Science | Find Articles at BNET

A century of agricultural innovation has vastly increased the amount of food on Earth-and with it, the total population. But the first green revolution is proving unsustainable, and hunger is on the rise. Now keeping the world fed will require an unlikely alliance between genetic engineers and organic farmers AMONG THE TREE-LINED BIKE PATHS, automated livestock pens and darkened lecture halls of the University of California at Davis, a tiny room holds a weapon of mass destruction. Here, behind locked doors, sits a chunk of Xanthomonas, a bacterial blight that has decimated rice harvests in China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam and West Africa. Since the passage of the Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response Act of 2002, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has deemed Xanthomonas a "select agent," which meant that in order to enter I had to produce a photo I.D., sign a series of documents, and suit up in a disposable lab coat.

Why Are So Many Authors Such Depressed People? - NotPhil's Notebook

I have this rare privilege of being able to think for a living; what's more I get paid to create things. So the regions of my mind connected to analysis, self-criticism and creativity are getting frequent exercise and development. They haven't yet atrophied through misuse or ill-use. But let me make this clear: being very bright does not equate to depression — feeling disconnected from people might.

Otter signs bill to make state land more attractive for geothemal development |

Idaho Gov. Butch Otter signed four bills Tuesday that give the Idaho Land Board flexibility to sign leases with geothermal developers. The four bills give the Land Board authority to reach longer-term lease agreements, negotiate rent and royalties not only for a single lease, but over a wide area. One bill also allows the board to set bonding for each phase of a geothermal project. [...] Full article at   Posted via email from Moments of Awareness
