Scientists Discover New Type of Earthquake

Scientists working at Caltech in Pasadena, California, say that earthquakes may not be limited to the earth’s crust, according to an article recently published on Science Alert. They now believe that earthquakes can occur in the earth’s upper mantle.

So far, the team has just discovered smaller earthquakes in the crust, but there is disagreement over how strong these earthquakes that are undetectable using traditional seismic equipment may become. Some scientists believe that earthquakes occurring in the earth’s mantle will remain less than a 2 calling them localized chatter that cannot group themselves together to form a massive earthquake. Others suggest that they may become stronger than any earthquake that has happened so far.

Researchers started looking at this phenomena after a 8.6 earthquake occurred in the Indian Ocean on April 12, 2016. This earthquake did not occur in line with traditional theories. Therefore, scientists had to start looking for a new hypothesis. The earthquake did, however, occur along a fault line similar to those found in the San Andes fault line and the Newport-Inglewood fault lines.

Meanwhile, scientists with the Southern California Earthquake Center said at the National Earthquake Conference that they believe that a major earthquake may occur along the San Andes fault very soon. The Pacific plate is moving northwest at a rate of 16 feet every 100 years while the North America plate is not moving. Therefore, tension is being created under California. If a major earthquake occurs in this area, then scientists say that it could kill 1,800 people, injure over 50,000, cause $200 billion in property damage and cause six months of compromised sewer system problems. They are most worried about the damage spreading towards Los Angeles, although they say damage in the Coachella Valley, Island Empire and Antelope Valley would be extensive.

Scientists have also announced that they have found a new fault line under the Salton Sea. They believe that this fault line may be taking pressure off the San Andreas fault which is why major quakes have not recently occurred there. This new fault line has recently been rumbling producing 300 small earthquakes last week.

Oregon State has Met its Mark – 2.5 Million Are Registered for Nov. 8 Elections

Although the Republican party is against bill HB 2177, the Democrats managed to influence Oregon state to adopt the bill. As a result, the voting numbers have risen for the next election in November. Chiefly, this kind of rise in attendees can change the outcome for local companies and communities by the millions of dollars.

 

The citizens of Oregon collected impressive numbers, by registering for the November 8 elections. Secretary of State, Jeanne P. Atkins claims that November 8th will be one of the most active elections in Oregon’s voting history. According to sources, the Oregon government is placing Measure 97 on the board for the next contingency; Measure 97 imposes a minimum tax on companies that bring in over @5 million in sales – a tax minimum of $30,001 plus 2.5% of the amount above $25 million. The voter registration deadline is Oct. 18, at midnight PST.

 

Arguably, the Republicans continue to point out that the government ‘shouldn’t’ try to register people because certain citizens attain religious beliefs that may hinder their need to vote. Furthermore, Rep. Knute Buehler, R-Bend comments, “Automatic voter registration replaces individual convenience with government coercion…” Thereafter, Bueler continues by expressing his dislike of the specific idea.

 

Last February 2015, a ‘sweeping’ voter registration bill moved closer to law, as the bill was approved by the House on a party-line vote, ultimately, giving Oregon the ‘most expansive’ voter registration law in the United States. This is considered a motor voter bill, which uses Oregon state drivers’ license data to automatically register voters – lobbied by the Democrats (took effect on January 1, 2016). In general, the bill supports HB 2177, which covers the usage of driver’s license data going back to 2013. Ideally, this particular information in sought after to automatically register voters who appear as citizens through the DMV. Then, those new voters are sent a postcard requesting for their attendance to vote or opt out of registration. However, if they didn’t respond, the assumed citizen would be registered as a non-affiliated voter. In the meantime, Oregon is showing additional numbers in the 110,000+ range.

Giants Look to Compete Against Cubs

Heading into the 2016 major-league baseball playoffs, the San Francisco giants were considered one of the favorites to advance to the World Series. The Giants were fan favorites and expert picks due to their recent successes that includes winning 3 championships in the past 7 years. Their goal of winning another title seemed to get off to a great start after they won the Wild Card game in the National League Playoffs over the New York Mets. While they started off great, a recent news article (http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/page/playoffs16_nldsgame3sfchc/nlds-chicago-cubs-san-francisco-giants-mega-preview-win-game-3) has pointed out that the Giants are in a tough fight against the Chicago Cubs.

 

On Friday and Saturday night against the Cubs, the Giants got off to a tough start. In Game 1 of the Divisional Round of the playoffs, the Cubs ended up scoring a key run in the bottom of the 8th inning and held on to win a tight game by the score of 1-0. During Game 2, the Cubs started off quite hot and ended up winning by the score of 5-2 despite losing their starting pitcher early in the game due to injury.

 

After the first two games were played in Chicago, the series now has shifted to San Francisco where the Giants will host Game 3 on Monday night and potentially Game 4 on Tuesday night if the Giants are able to win on Monday. Monday night has a lot of potential to be an absolute classic matchup. The Giants will be led by Madison Bumgarner who is well regarded for being one of the best playoff pitchers of all time. The Cubs, on the other hand, will be led by Jake Arrietta who is the reigning Cy Young award winner.

 

If the Giants are able to get by the Cubs in Game 3, they still have a tough road ahead as they will have to win both Game 4 and Game 5 in order to advance. The winner of the series will end up facing either the Washington Nationals or the Los Angeles Dodgers in National League Championship Series.

Igor Cornelsen: Why Brazilian Banks Aren’t Affected by The Economy

 

At the end of 2014, the banking industry was shocked about the anomalies in most of the banks in Brazil. It is believed that most of the banks suffer when there is any trouble in the economic. However, this did not happen in Brazil. When Dilma Rousseff was the president of the country, there was no economic growth, because of the populist ideas that were being used. By the end of the year, the economy was in a dangerous mess.

The country has two main private banks, known as Itau Unibanco and the Banco Bradesco. The two banks reported that their shares significantly rose up in the year. The two private banks also reported that they had solid profit increases. Investors in the world are shocked how these banks have been able to weather the storm.

 

Igor Cornelsen is one of the top investment experts and bankers who is based in Brazil. Igor says that the country has managed to withstand the storm because the professionals working in the banks have a lot of knowledge in the market, and they have also gained a lot of experience during the turbulent years.

 

Igor Cornelsen says that the Brazilian bankers, especially those in the private industry have only been giving loans to the borrowers who prove to the worthy of the credit. This secret ensures that the costs are streamlined, and the banks get the sense of security they need to look ahead. Cornelsen notes that the individuals with less desirable credit are forced to look for help in the public industry bank or the cash-based spending. Some of them are also forced to forego their business plans because they cannot get the funds needed.

 

He has blogged about how the formula used in these private banks has severely affected the macro economy of the country, and the development of the country is affected too. The Brazilian government should put measures in place to ensure that the investors in the country feel secure. The government should also instill more market-oriented fiscal austerity and reforms that will make the individuals in the middle-class access credit. If these small investors are given an opportunity, then the country will experience the growth it needs.  Read more about Igor on Wikidot.

Rome withdraws, could increase LA’s chances for 2024 Olympics

On Tuesday of this week Rome officially withdrew itself from consideration for hosting the 2024 Olympics. Los Angeles has been in the mix all along, and with a narrowing field, it could help the California city’s chances.

Los Angeles, Paris and Budapest are the remaining candidates to host the games. A story in the LA Times says the International Olympic Committee is made up of Western Europeans, and that could weigh heavily in favor of Paris or Budapest, and in that case the Italians’ withdrawal would not mean very much. Still, Los Angeles is a serious candidate and could eventually win the prize.

The Olympic Committee has had trouble getting applicants to host the games. The press release said local government opposition was the primary reason Rome pulled out. The Rome City Council withdrew its support recently, and that made it virtually impossible to host the games there. Also earlier in the year, Virginia Raggi was elected Mayor of Rome, and was running on the single issue of opposing hosting the Olympics.

Also earlier this year, Hamburg, Germany voters turned down hosting the games in a referendum vote.

Boston also withdrew from consideration last summer. Four other cities have also withdrawn over the past year.

The IOC has added some reforms that they hope will make hosting the games less expensive. While it is an honor to hose the Olympics, it is very costly and some have raised concerns about whether it is worth it to get the prize. Many cite the tremendous cost of hosting the games, and say the financial risk is too great. The prestige of hosting the games has value, but if the city goes broke in the process, it will have a hard time justifying winning the right to host the games.

Los Angeles and Paris have been the favorites all along, and this will not change that impression.

The Los Angeles committee issued a press release saying it was disappointed in hearing that Rome had withdrawn as a candidate. It said Rome had been a good candidate and they praised the Italian city for its professionalism.

Rome officials did hold out a small hope they could resurrect their campaign, but for now they have decided to suspend the effort.

Classdojo Makes Happier Classrooms

When the Classdojo app was first created, it was so that teachers and students would be able to have a better time giving and getting certain rewards in the classroom. It was intended to make the classroom a better, happier and more successful place. The creators never would have dreamed that it would become so popular and that it would evolve into where it is currently at today. It makes the classroom better by making sure to include the teachers, the students and even the parents in every step of the classroom process on a day-to-day basis for their students.

 

Teachers started using the app because it was another way that they could organize their classroom. It was something different that allowed them to reward students and gave them a great chance at doing things that could be helpful to the classroom. Students didn’t need to do anything other than have great behavior and teachers would be able to reward them. They also would not need to call out students and disrupt the classroom just because they did something good that deserved a reward. The Class DOjo makes it discreet and also allows for bigger rewards for different things that students can do.

 

Students love the app because it is something that is easy to use and because they can get prizes for doing good. In the past, there was no uniform system for students to be rewarded. With Classdojo, they will know exactly what they are going to get from doing good deeds and they can make sure that they get it at all times. It is a great option that many classrooms do not have without the use of the app and something that can truly help students to feel better about their own attitude when they are in the classroom.

 

There are many ways in which Classdojo is helpful in the classroom but it is also helpful out of the classroom for the parents of students who are in classrooms that use the app. The parents can get on the app any time that they want to see what their child has done that day. They can also look at the different levels of progress that their child has made and make sure that they are doing well. They can then use the feedback from the app to make sure that they are properly helping their children at home.

Is California Really the Poorest State?

In an opinion piece in Forbes, Chuck Devore discussed the shocking fact that, in real terms, California is the poorest state in the union. According to Devore, the true poverty rate, considering cost of living and purchasing power, is nearly one-third, at around 30%, even though in absolute terms the state is ranked 17 on the list of most impoverished states. There are a number of factors influencing this reality and no real, coordinated solution to the problem has emerged.

 

The official poverty measures that the federal government uses do not account for cost of living disparities, so poverty tend to be overstated in the Midwest and South and overstated on the coasts. The Supplementary Poverty Measure, the official government poverty statistics that accounts for regional differences in cost, also places California at the top of the list, at 28%.

 

The issues have been hashed and re-hashed in the nation’s largest metro areas over and over again—gentrification, land-use regulations, lack of affordable housing, and wage stagnation are all at play. Both Northern and Southern California are among the most expensive areas in the country by any measure, and while Silicon Valley and the Internet Revolution transformed the Bay Area, outside of tech, wages have been sluggish and in many cases have declined substantially in real terms. The California “refugee” who flees to nearby states with a somewhat lower cost of living has become a cliché.

 

Many deride the supposed closed-mindedness of politicians who prioritize preserving a mythical California way-of-life against becoming “another Manhattan,” as if the problem is any better in New York City. Letting developers build luxury skyscrapers and other upscale housing is no way to solve this problem. On the other hand, many people are unwilling to face realities of urban population growth fueled by economic changes. People want to be able to afford luxury on their salary; nobody really wants to live in subsidized housing.

 

To be sure, poverty and social problems are not limited to California, and these effects are being felt across the country and all over the world. In the midst of rising income inequality, why would we by surprised by all of this?
