    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 its due to the phenomenon called slow-slip, and its happening north of us out in the Pacific. The Juan de Fuca plate, is what its called, is sliding under North America, and sometimes its locked, and sometimes it slips. But when it slips, its building up stress elsewhere...

    When it comes to those last globs of ketchup inevitably stuck to every bottle of Heinz, most people either violently shake the container in hopes of eking out another drop or two, or perform the "secret" trick: smacking the "57" logo on the bottles neck. But not MIT PhD candidate Dave Smith. He and a team of mechanical engineers and nano-technologists at the Varanasi Research Group have been held up in an MIT lab for the last two months addressing this common dining problem. The result? LiquiGlide, a "super slippery" coating made up of nontoxic materials that can be applied...

    With civil unrest breaking out all over the Middle East and Africa sending oil and gas prices through the roof, one could make the case that Barack Obama more and more is looking like Jimmy Carter. On this weekend's "Chris Matthews Show," the liberal host made it seem that this is even on his mind as he made a rather telling slip of the tongue (video follows with transcript and commentary):

    When Helen Thomas said that Israel's Jews should just GTFO and return to Germany and Poland, I suggested her comments were not anti-Semitic per se but merely very blunt anti-Zionism. But her latest comments suggests that, no, she really has a problem with Jews: Thomas, who grew up in Detroit the daughter of Lebanese immigrants, was in Dearborn today for an Arab Detroit workshop on anti-Arab bias. ... In a speech that drew a standing ovation, Thomas talked about "the whole question of money involved in politics." "We are owned by propagandists against the Arabs. There's no question about that....

    About 271,000 Mexican immigrants have slipped into poverty in the US, Spanish banking giant BBVA said in a report. It said between the fourth quarter of 2008 and the same period last year, 'the number of workers of Mexican origin with jobs decreased by approximately 560,000'. For that reason, the number of workers of Mexican origin who are currently unemployed increased to about 1.8 million, 'of whom around 51 percent are immigrants', according to the report Saturday. The bank said 60 percent of the jobs lost in the US last year were from the construction and commerce sectors, while in...

    ST. LOUIS, Mo. - Sen. Barack Obama's foes seized Sunday upon a brief slip of the tongue, when the Democratic presidential nominee was outlining his Christianity but accidentally said, "my Muslim faith." The three words -- immediately corrected -- were during an exchange with ABC's George Stephanopoulos on "This Week," when he was trying to criticize the quiet smear campaign suggesting he is a Muslim. But illustrating the difficulty of preventing false rumors about his faith from spreading, anti-Obama groups within one hour of the interview had sliced it out of context and were sending it around via email. They...

    An enormous underwater landslide 60,000 years ago produced the longest flow of sand and mud yet found on Earth. The landslide off the coast of north-west Africa dumped 225 billion metric tonnes of sediment into the ocean in a matter of hours or days. The flow travelled 1,500km (932 miles) - the distance from London to Rome - before depositing its sediment. The work, by a British team of researchers has been published in the academic journal Nature. The massive surge put down the same amount of sediment that comes out of all the world's rivers combined over a period...

    I have good news for everyone offended by the description ... Several days after taking flak for his disparaging comments dishonoring such heroism, Obama blubbered about what he really meant. ''I was actually upset with myself when I said that, because I never use that term,'' he told the Des Moines Register. Well, then what dastardly saboteur slipped it into his well-rehearsed stump speech? What supernatural force produced the guttural noise that glided effortlessly from his voicebox through his lips and pronounced the term "wasted"? "What I would say and meant to say is that their service hasn't...

    Israel's prime minister, Ehud Olmert, faced calls from opposition MPs to resign yesterday after he let slip during a television interview that his country had nuclear weapons. While Israel's status as a nuclear power since the 1960s is widely known, its political and military leaders have traditionally refused to confirm or deny they have nuclear weapons. Mr Olmert deviated from that script when he put Israel in the category of nuclear powers during a question and answer session about Iran. "Iran openly, explicitly and publicly threatens to wipe Israel off the map," he said on German television. "Can you say...

    What's become of bin Laden since he gave us all the slip? By Anton La Guardia, Diplomatic Editor (Filed: 01/11/2005) Some think he is dead, others that he is hiding because he is scared of being killed. Whatever the reason for the strange disappearance of Osama bin Laden, not seen alive since his last mocking video statement a year ago, he is no longer the face of the global "jihad" against the West. The face of al-Qa'eda: Ayman al-Zawahiri and Osama bin Laden Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the Jordanian responsible for some of the worst atrocities in Iraq, has become the...

    Danger lurks below in Oregon The state faces the likelihood of a major earthquake that would kill thousands and cause billions of dollars in damage -- and we're not ready for it. A hurricane as destructive as Katrina striking Oregon is about as likely as a rain-free winter in the Northwest. Oregon hasn't been hit by a hurricane even close to that powerful in recorded history. But that doesn't mean the state is immune to disaster. Scientists warn that the 800-mile-long earthquake fault off the state's coast will shake the ground as far east as the Cascades -- hard enough...

    Iraqi rebels slip away to fight another day By Aqeel Hussein in al-Nouaimia and Toby Harnden in Fallujah (Filed: 14/11/2004) Families fleeing the besieged city of Fallujah say that rebel fighters have slipped through the American and Iraqi military cordon and have been driven away in Mercedes cars to rejoin the battle elsewhere in Iraq. The fighters, said to include foreign militants using satellite telephones, are believed to be heading for Baghdad and the northern city of Mosul, to open a new front. Abu Haider, 47, a mechanic who escaped with his family on Friday, said: "I saw many fighters...

    Poll: Kerry loses ground with voters By WILL LESTER ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER WASHINGTON -- Democrat John Kerry has lost ground with voters in their perceptions of his honesty, leadership skills and Vietnam experience during the heated debate over his war record as a swiftboat commander, a poll found. Ads paid for by a group called the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth have questioned Kerry's Vietnam service and claim he lied about his actions while piloting a swiftboat on a Vietnam river in the late 1960s. The Kerry campaign has rebutted the claims with Navy documents and other veteran accounts, and...

    Shanghai may slip under the sea February 06 2004 at 06:09AM Shanghai - Rising sea levels due to global warming mean the gleaming skyscrapers of China's financial hub Shanghai could be entirely submerged in 600 years, a state newspaper said on Friday. Academics worry that Shanghai, which state media report sank as much as 2.63m between 1921 and 1965 due to the overpumping of underground water, may descend further under the weight of a construction frenzy of the past decade. The sea had risen 20mm since 2000 and should keep climbing over the next decade, the Shanghai Daily said, citing...

    Court refuses to reinstate lawsuit over slip on french fry (Published Wednesday, October 8, 2003 09:17:49 AM CDT) By Robert Imrie/Associated Press WAUSAU, Wis. -- A divided state appeals court refused Tuesday to revive a woman's lawsuit that alleged a Green Bay arena was unsafe because she slipped on a ketchup-soaked french fry on a stairway and broke her ankle. The 3rd District Court of Appeals said allowing the lawsuit to proceed as the woman contended would have impractical ramifications for stadiums, theaters, restaurants and shopping malls. "Imagine, for example, the consequences for Lambeau Field when more than 70,000 people...

    FRANKFORT, Ky. - A woman who slipped on dog feces and hurt her ankle while she was shopping at a Petsmart store deserves a jury trial, the Kentucky Court of Appeals ruled Friday. The Boone Circuit Court granted Petsmart a summary judgment in September 2001, and dismissed Vickie Jenkins' claim that store owners were negligent in her fall. Jenkins had testified in the original case that she shopped at the store at least once a week for about six years, and never encountered animal feces or urine on the floor. She told the court that on April 23, 1999, she...
