Seismologist Lucy Jones said on Twitter on Monday night that magnitude 4 quakes near the San Andreas “increase the chance” of a big quake “a little bit. But we have swarms without big [earthquakes] — most likely nothing more will happen.”

An interesting little bit I've learned is that in CA they now do frequent earthquake forecasts. Whenever there is a moderate sized earthquake, that increases the probability that there could be a larger earthquake, because that earthquake could be a foreshock (effectively an earthquake on the same fault before the largest earthquake).

Not prediction, but more effective forecasting.
The Salton Sea are is roughly the transition from spreading center characterized by more southern ocean sections of the fault to the transverse slip fault associated with the northern San Andreas fault.

I have no idea how much that's affecting what's going on with all those quakes. Though I really like the idea of lots of small earthquakes rather than one big one. ;)

The Bad Astronomer's take on passing of kidney stones.

Generally he WAS for this as the guy who arranged this experiment seemed to have gone to significant effort to make a good set of replicable tests, but as Plait pointed out he is "only" a PhD. doctor and not a medical one.

ON THE OTHER HAND: Plait did ask for opinions of MDs and via an update he said that he is processing some contrary opinions, perhaps some from specialists in urinary tract problems.

I felt that way in Chronotrigger the first time I played it. Great game, though.

Not to mention, it was clear in the right lane. Dude was being a dick in the left lane.



There was traffic merging onto the right lane, so not clear.

They are both uncouth individuals.



The person tailgating is the only uncouth individual there.


Brake checking is an uncouth individual, dangerous, illegal move, and holding up the passing lane is a ticketable offense in many places (including my province).


He had moved left to allow the vehicle in from the on-ramp on the right which is the correct procedure. And while brake checking is an uncouth individual move, I'd rather send an stick fiddler on my bumper swerving into the grass than have him total my car if I really have to brake hard.


This.

His first mistake was eating cotton candy from a factory sealed bag, instead of freshly made.

"Ancient Roman coins unearthed at Japan castle"

Image


Quote:
The discovery of 10 bronze and copper coins -- the oldest dating from about 300-400 AD -- in southern Okinawa caught researchers by surprise.

It was the first time Roman Empire coins have been discovered in Japan, thousands of kilometres from where they were likely minted.

"At first I thought they were one cent coins dropped by US soldiers," archaeologist Hiroki Miyagi told AFP.

"But after washing them in water I realised they were much older. I was really shocked."

The sub-tropical island chain hosts a cluster of US military bases and thousands of troops.

A team of researchers have been excavating Katsuren castle, which is a UNESCO world heritage site, since 2013.

An X-ray analysis of the dime-sized coins showed some were embossed with Roman letters and possibly the image of Emperor Constantine I and a soldier holding a spear.

Several others dated from a later period -- the 17th century Ottoman empire.

Um, a bad Photoshop combining an authentically daring seat somewhere (a Norwegian fjord, maybe?) with a mismatched aerial shot of some beach city (possibly from a landing jet)?

The buildings are all leaning to the right a bit, which makes me think the angle of the picture might be off.

Yup, wide lines and spaces in circuit patterns means very low failure rate, once one gets past infant mortality issues. The C64 had quite a bit of that in the early days. I think I still have my C64 in the garage.

I'm going to assume they've made a few backup floppies to run on it. I can't imagine one lasting long grinding along in all that dust... :eek:

5 1/4 floppies. Very reliable long term solution for backups.
