    Olympia, the Sanctuary of Zeus and venue of the Olympic Games in Ancient Greece, was probably destroyed by tsunamis that reached far inland, and not as previously believed, by earthquakes and river flooding... Paläotsunamis that have taken place over the last 11,000 years along the coasts of the eastern Mediterranean. The Olympic-tsunami hypothesis has been put forward due to sediments found in the vicinity of Olympia, which were buried under an 8 metres thick layer of sand and other debris, and only rediscovered around 250 years ago. "The composition and thickness of the sediments we have found, do not fit...
  • Illinois Nazi loses congressional race by huge margin

    An avowed Nazi running as a Republican lost a House race in suburban Chicago on Tuesday. Arthur Jones, who called the Holocaust "the biggest, blackest lie in history" and described himself as a former leader of the American Nazi Party, lost by a 50-point margin to incumbent Democrat Dan Lipinski. Jones still managed to get more than 40,000 votes, according to official figures. The 70-year-old secured the Republican nomination in March, when the party did not bother to put up any other candidate in the heavily-Democratic congressional district. Jones's primary win was a major embarrassment for party leaders. They disavowed...

    Hah-Hah! Former President Obama was in Milwaukee, Wisconsin Friday and he couldn’t fill a high school gymnasium. But this didn’t stop a far left Daily Beast hack from claiming the line was a mile long to get into the event! Meanwhile in the middle for rural Illinois President Trump had an event and his line did look to be a mile long –

  • An 1888 Volcanic Collapse Becomes a Benchmark for Tsunami Models

    EOS ^ | 10/10/17 | Aaron Micallef, et al
    When volcanic mountains slide into the sea, they trigger tsunamis. How big are these waves, and how far away can they do damage? Ritter Island provides some answers. Early one March morning in 1888, a 4-cubic-kilometer chunk of the Ritter Island volcano collapsed into the Bismarck Sea northeast of New Guinea. This volume of land was about twice that of the Mount St. Helens landslide in 1980, and it is the largest historically recorded tsunami-causing volcanic sector collapse. The ensuing landslide triggered a tsunami tens of meters high. The waves were still 8 meters high when they reached parts of...
  • SHIP-SINKING MONSTER WAVES REVEALED BY ESA SATELLITES

    Ship-sinking monster waves revealed by ESA satellites   Rare photo of a rogue wave     21 July 2004  Once dismissed as a nautical myth, freakish ocean waves that rise as tall as ten-storey apartment blocks have been accepted as a leading cause of large ship sinkings. Results from ESA's ERS satellites helped establish the widespread existence of these 'rogue' waves and are now being used to study their origins.  Severe weather has sunk more than 200 supertankers and container ships exceeding 200 metres in length during the last two decades. Rogue waves are believed to be the major...
  • Tidal wave threat 'over-hyped'

    The risk of a landslide in the Canary Islands causing a tidal wave (tsunami) able to devastate America's east coast is vastly overstated. That's according to marine geologists studying ancient landslides in the area In typical Canary Island landslides, chunks of land break off in bits, not in one dramatic plunge, they claim. This contradicts previous warnings that an Isle of Man-sized chunk of land could fall off the island of La Palma into the sea, causing a mega-tsunami.

    MORE than 270 earthquakes have been recorded in just ten days near Spain’s Canary Islands raising fears of a volcanic eruption. The quakes have struck near Tenerife and Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands where there is a huge submarine fault between the two islands. Spain’s National Geographic Institute said the biggest recent quake reached a magnitude of 3.2 on the Richter scale at only about 35km from Puerto La Luz in Gran Canaria. A report said the fault line has not been active in recent times, but it added, “What if it started spewing magma again? And what if...

The remark came after a spirited...

    Maureen Dowd interviews Mark Cuban for the New York Times, and he says that the “arrogant” Clinton campaign didn’t see their historic election loss coming. Cuban likes to say whining is underrated, but what did he think of Hillary blaming Comey, Sanders, Obama, Biden, Putin? “They didn’t see it coming at all,” he says of the arrogant Clinton camp. “I remember right before the election, they invited me to the party in Brooklyn. I’m like, are you kidding me? You do not plan the parade before you win the championship. “In sports, matchups matter, right? Hillary was prepared to have...

    More than 120 people were buried by a landslide that caused huge rocks and a mass of earth to come crashing into their homes in a mountain village in southwestern China early Saturday, officials said. The landslide, which came from a mountain, engulfed a cluster of 62 homes and a hotel in the village of Xinmo in Mao County at about 6 a.m., the Sichuan provincial government said. Officials said 1.6 kilometers (1 mile) of road were buried in the disaster. “It’s the biggest landslide to hit this area since the Wenchuan earthquake

    A mountain of trash gave way in a massive garbage dump on the outskirts of Ethiopia's capital, killing at least 35 people and leaving several dozen missing, residents said, as officials vowed to relocate those who called the landfill home. Addis Ababa city spokeswoman Dagmawit Moges said most of the dead were women and children, and more bodies were expected to be found in the coming hours. It was not immediately clear what caused Saturday night's collapse at the Koshe Garbage Landfill, which buried several makeshift homes and concrete buildings. The landfill has been a dumping ground for the capital's...

    Swing-voting independents are twice as likely to trust President Donald Trump’s administration than to trust the media, according to a new poll by Fox News. The lopsided 52 percent to 26 percent trust in Trump is hidden in the crosstabs of the poll, which was released Feb. 17. Overall, by a narrow margin of 45 percent to 42 percent, Americans think Trump is more likely to tell the truth than are reporters...... .....Only 8 percent of Democratic voters trust Trump more than reporters, and only 9 percent of Republican voters trust the media reporters more than Trump..... So the 52...

    Despite devastating Democrat losses in the 2016 Election, President Obama left a small message of hope for his constituency during his final press conference: He said, "At my core, I think we're going to be okay." If his comment sounded vaguely survivalist, it's for good reason. As Washington faces a looming change of power in two days, President Obama has yet to address staggering Democrat losses that extend far beyond the election of Donald J. Trump. The Trump administration coupled with the success of fellow Republicans has effectively given Republicans control every branch of American government. Republicans have just won...

    President-elect Donald Trump celebrated the official tally of the electoral college vote, taking the opportunity to boast about his unexpected victory. “Today marks a historic electoral landslide victory in our nation’s democracy,” he said in a statement. Trump has been celebrating his victory since winning the election on November 8th. But he took the opportunity to humiliate the media and Democratic protesters after weeks of speculation that the electoral college could theoretically choose a different candidate. “We did it!” he wrote on Twitter. “Thank you to all of my great supporters, we just officially won the election (despite all of...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — In claiming that he scored "a massive landslide victory" in last month's presidential election, Donald Trump turned history upside down.In fact, his winning margin in the Electoral College is on the other end of the historical spectrum, far closer to the narrowest win in history than to the widest.Speaking on "Fox News Sunday," Trump claimed that "We had a massive landslide victory, as you know, in the Electoral College." Hillary Clinton, he said, is "down to a very low number." He added that Democrats "suffered one of the greatest defeats in the history of politics in this...
