  • Tectonic Time Bomb: Recent Burst Of Seismic Activity Has Scientists Taking Notice

    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A recent burst of seismic activity along the West Coast has scientists taking notice. They believe these small tremors could potentially be a precursor to something larger. Over the last few weeks, these small tremors have been reported along the coast of northern California, up to Washington. Scientists said it’s due to the phenomenon called “slow-slip,” and it’s happening north of us out in the Pacific. “The Juan de Fuca plate, is what it’s called, is sliding under North America, and sometimes it’s locked, and sometimes it slips. But when it slips, it’s building up stress elsewhere...

    perhaps they need more refugees (satire) Swiss authorities were monitoring the social media activity of about 400 possible jihadists who might pose a security threat, the NDB federal intelligence service said on Monday. Switzerland is not a primary target for Islamist attacks because it is not part of the military campaign against groups such as Islamic State, but the security threat level has been elevated nonetheless, the NDB's annual report said. The report showed a photo of a Swiss passport next to an explosive belt posted online by a suspected Swiss jihadist who had traveled to the Middle East, and...
  • Why short bursts of activity boost fitness in the body

    Short bouts of intense exercise could be the key to staying in shape after researchers found that even just a few minutes of strenuous activity can make muscles work harder. High-intensity interval training (HIIT) has become popular with athletes and amateurs and has clear visible benefits. But sports scientists have always struggled to understand how a short amount of activity can produce similar effects as endurance training. Now, researchers at the Karonlinska Institute in Sweden have found that even small levels of intensive exercise boost the production of mitochondria– the cell’s batteries – which enhance muscle endurance.

    Vet Street ^ | March 5, 2013 | Gina Spadafori
    Like many people in late middle age, I find myself wondering if my next dog will be different. I have long shared my life with retrievers — active, field-bred dogs who throw themselves with joy into every situation (and every puddle of water bigger than a dinner plate). Their boisterousness is infectious: My dogs make me happy. But in 10 years, or 15, or 20, will I be up to the demands of dogs like these? Or will a nice, quiet little spaniel be the dog I need? My answer may be different than others, even among people of similar...

    A new satellite image suggests that additional suspicious activity may be occurring at the Parchin site in Iran, according to a Friday report by the Institute for Science and International Security (ISIS). The new GeoEye image dated August 15, 2012 shows that additional suspicious activity may be occurring at a building suspected of housing high explosive experiments related to the development of nuclear weapons and at an adjacent, northern building that may have also hosted suspect activities. ISIS noted that the new image shows what appears to be pink tent-like material over the two buildings, citing an article which concurrently...

    Vienna - The UN atomic agency chief said on Monday he had information of "activities" at Iran's Parchin military complex, which made a trip there by inspectors probing suspected weapons work all the more important. "We are aware of some activities at Parchin... and this makes us believe that going there sooner is better than going there later," Yukiya Amano told reporters at International Atomic Energy Agency headquarters in Vienna. The Iaea said in a major report in November that it believed Iran had carried out high-explosives tests in a bus-sized metal container at Parchin near Tehran that it suspected...

    The Instituto Geografico Nacional (IGN) has reported an increase in the intensity of earthquakes recorded on El Hierro, the smallest of The Canary Islands, during the last 24 to 36 hours. The number of earthquakes recorded since July 17 , 2011 on El Hierros has now reached 10,000, figures from the IGN confirm. The IGN also confirmed surface deformations exceeding 35mm on the 280-sqkm island, where residents have been put on alert for a possible volcanic eruption. However, seismologists have moved to reassure the local population that a volcanic eruption is not imminent. The agency confirmed on Friday that 890...

    Israel is up in arms over a declaration by a British government spokesman that the UK is funding political activity in Israel. World British spokesman Martin Day said in an interview in Dubai with Al-Arabiya television last week that the British government was "taking practical steps towards freezing settlement activities." "For instance," Day said, "we finance projects aimed at halting settlement activities. One of these projects seeks to build new Palestinian neighborhoods in east Jerusalem and save Palestinian houses from demolition."

    Barack Hussein Obama is no bambi, he learned dirty politics from the pros in Chicago's political underworld. Apparently, both Obama and Biden have ties to that famous lunatic, George Soros and his one-world view. As more and more information about Obama's own statements, his choices of activities and people with whom to associate himself after graduation from Harvard Law School, one aspect of him becomes abundantly clear...he is NO patriot of the United States of America. If he is not a patriot, then what is he...what is still unknown that is being kept hidden in his closet?The Chicago-type strong-arm tactics...

    The sun's surface has been fairly blank for the last couple of years, and that has some worried that it may be entering another Maunder minimum, the sun's 50-year abstinence from sunspots, which some scientists have linked to the Little Ice Age of the 17th century. Could a new sunspot drought plunge us into another decades-long cold spell? It's not very likely, says David Hathaway a solar physicist at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala. The question came up after an international solar conference held last week at Montana State University, where scientists discussed the dearth of solar...
