New Evidence Shows Power of East Coast Earthquakes
Virginia Earthquake Triggered Landslides at Great Distances
Released: 11/6/2012 8:30:00 AM USGS.govEarthquake shaking in the eastern United States can travel much farther and cause damage over larger areas than previously thought.U.S. Geological Survey scientists found that last year’s magnitude 5.8 earthquake in Virginia triggered landslides at distances four times farther—and over an area 20 times larger—than previous research has shown.“We used landslides as an example and direct physical evidence to see how far-reaching shaking from east coast earthquakes could be,” said Randall Jibson, USGS scientist and lead author of this study. “Not every earthquake will trigger landslides, but we can use landslide distributions to estimate characteristics of earthquake energy and how far regional ground shaking could occur.”“Scientists are confirming with empirical data what more than 50 million people in the eastern U.S. experienced firsthand: this was one powerful earthquake,” said USGS Director Marcia McNutt. “Calibrating the distance over which landslides occur may also help us reach back into the geologic record to look for evidence of past history of major earthquakes from the Virginia seismic zone.”This study will help inform earthquake hazard and risk assessments as well as emergency preparedness, whether for landslides or other earthquake effects.This study also supports existing research showing that although earthquakes  are less frequent in the East, their damaging effects can extend over a much larger area as compared to the western United States.The research is being presented today at the Geological Society of America conference, and will be published in the December 2012 issue of the Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America.The USGS found that the farthest landslide from the 2011 Virginia earthquake was 245 km (150 miles) from the epicenter. This is by far the greatest landslide distance recorded from any other earthquake of similar magnitude.Previous studies of worldwide earthquakes indicated that landslides occurred no farther than 60 km (36 miles) from the epicenter of a magnitude 5.8 earthquake.“What makes this new study so unique is that it provides direct observational evidence from the largest earthquake to occur in more than 100 years in the eastern U.S,” said Jibson. “Now that we know more about the power of East Coast earthquakes, equations that predict ground shaking might need to be revised.”It is estimated that approximately one-third of the U.S. population could have felt last year’s earthquake in Virginia, more than any earthquake in U.S. history. About 148,000 people reported their ground-shaking experiences caused by the earthquake on the USGS “Did You Feel It?” website. Shaking reports came from southeastern Canada to Florida and as far west as Texas.In addition to the great landslide distances recorded, the landslides from the 2011 Virginia earthquake occurred in an area 20 times larger than expected from studies of worldwide earthquakes. Scientists plotted the landslide locations that were farthest out and then calculated the area enclosed by those landslides. The observed landslides from last year’s Virginia earthquake enclose an area of about 33,400 km2, while previous studies indicated an expected area of about 1,500 km2from an earthquake of similar magnitude.“The landslide distances from last year’s Virginia earthquake are remarkable compared to historical landslides across the world and represent the largest distance limit ever recorded,” said Edwin Harp, USGS scientist and co-author of this study. “There are limitations to our research, but the bottom line is that we now have a better understanding of the power of East Coast earthquakes and potential damage scenarios.”The difference between seismic shaking in the East versus the West is due in part to the geologic structure and rock properties that allow seismic waves to travel farther without weakening.Learn more about the 2011 central Virginia earthquake.

Trump confronts the plague: Revelation 6

Coronavirus battle shows the bravery of President Trump: Devine

By Miranda Devine

President Trump is not a basement guy.

Sure, he could have done a Joe Biden and hidden in the White House the last five months, a president under quarantine cowering from the Chinese virus.

The symbolism would have been disastrous for the mightiest nation on the planet. Trump had to show fearlessness in the face of the virus. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi last week called his refusal to kowtow to the coronavirus a “brazen invitation” to get sick.

But, as the president told his old friend Rudy Giuliani, Saturday afternoon, he took the risks he had to take, because: “Great generals do not lead from behind. They get out front and motivate the troops.”

He was speaking to the former Big Apple mayor by phone from his hospital room at Walter Reed Medical Center, where he was flown by helicopter after his oxygen levels began to fall.

“I knew there was a risk that I could catch [the virus]. But if I couldn’t accept that risk, I should resign . . .

“I am the president of the United States. I can’t lock myself in a room . . . I had to confront it so the American people stopped being afraid of it so we could deal with it responsibly.

“I couldn’t hide in the White House . . .

“If I had handled it any other way, I would have created more panic, more fear in the American people . . .

“I’m going to beat this. Then I will be able to show people we can deal with this disease responsibly, but we shouldn’t be afraid of it.”

Giuliani, widely praised for his leadership during the September 11, 2001, terrorist attack, knows a thing or two about leadership. His staff urged him to retreat to safety in Brooklyn after the Twin Towers were attacked, but instead he went straight to Ground Zero.

“You can only lead from the front,” he says.

Trump reiterated the message Saturday night in a four-minute video from Walter Reed.

“This is America, this is the United States . . . This is the most powerful country in the world. I can’t be locked up in a room . . . As a leader, you have to confront problems.”

The fact is that a president doing his job and running for re-election necessarily is in contact with thousands of people. It’s not surprising he would contract the highly infectious coronavirus, regardless of precautions.

Biden’s timid behavior is not a model for how a president needs to behave. The obsessive measures taken to protect the 77-year-old border on fetishistic, with elaborate social distancing circles taped on the ground and masks at 20 paces. Staff yell, “Keep back!” and, “Six feet.”

If this was your grandfather, you would appreciate the caution. But a president can’t be paralyzed by fear, and neither can the country.

The virus is no longer a death sentence. Treatments have been found, the fatality rate has plummeted and vaccines are on the horizon.

For political advantage, Democrats have tried to keep Americans scared, depressed and under house arrest, while blaming the President for every COVID death. Sensible Americans reject this perverse framing of the pandemic.

Maybe the basement option works for those in the media and protected classes who have jobs that allow them to sit at home and conduct business via Zoom.

But in order for them to eat and have their groceries delivered, somebody had to get out in the real world and risk the virus.

Those scolding the president and his supporters, tut-tutting about masks and social distancing, are sacrificing the welfare of children and young people who are least at risk.

For some, being cooped up inside is a death sentence worse than the virus.

We will see how the president, 74 and overweight, pulls through. But the signs are good, say his doctors, and he could be released from hospital in the next couple of days.

Trump adapted to the virus. His rallies became open-air events at airports around the country, with the theatrical backdrop of Air Force One gleaming splendidly under klieg lights.

At his last rally, Saturday night at the Harrisburg airport in Pennsylvania, he stood out in the rain, valiantly performing in his wet suit for two hours.

The cheers were even more ecstatic than I remembered at his old indoor rallies, with a new chant of, “We Love You.”

“I love the man because he cares about this country and he fights for us,” said attendee Teresa Tavoletti, a self-described “50-something suburban woman” who had driven from New Jersey.

“I don’t care how he speaks. I don’t care what he says. I care about his actions and his actions have proven it to me. He’s got a record now to prove that he cares.”

I heard the same from people across the crucial swing state Pennsylvania. I saw it in Weirton in West Virginia last weekend, at a gathering of 300 Trump supporters in a “Trump train,” a parade of vehicles and trucks waving Trump flags.

“He supports my livelihood, which is oil and natural gas,” said Jason Laster, 44, of Wellsburg, WV. “He supports the right to bear arms. I just I feel like he’s done great things for the country already. And, four more years, if we can get Pelosi to quit trying to impeach him, then I feel like he’s going to do a bunch more great things.”

You see the enthusiasm for the president outside Walter Reed, where stalwarts have gathered to wave flags outside his window and cars honk their horns in appreciation.

You see it in new voter registrations, from Florida to Pennsylvania and West Virginia, where Republicans are outstripping Democrats by as much as two to one.

If the president bounces back onto the campaign trail, he will be an invincible hero, who not only survived every dirty trick the Democrats threw at him, but the Chinese virus as well. He will show America we no longer have to be afraid.

Lebanon is outside the temple walls: Revelation 11

Lebanon risks becoming the next Gaza

The Hezbollah-dominated country is increasingly isolated, bankrupt and watching the flight of its middle class

By ALISON TAHMIZIAN MEUSE

SEPTEMBER 28, 2020

BEIRUT — Squeezed geographically between a closed border with Israel and a sanctioned Syria, dominated by a proxy of Iran, and watching the last of its foreign reserves being ferried out of a collapsed financial system, Lebanon risks becoming the next Gaza. .

France, the last major Western power to recognize Hezbollah as a diplomatic partner, is today under increasing pressure to blacklist the movement in its entirety as a terrorist group. .

That pressure comes not only from Washington, which since the start of the year has ushered about similar designations by the United Kingdom and Germany, but from what Macron called a “betrayal” of the Lebanese political class to stick to the script of his roadmap for reform following a cataclysmic explosion that rocked Beirut on August 4.

The wind of God‘s wrath heads to the Caribbean: Jeremiah 23

New Warnings Issued in the Caribbean Ahead of New Gulf Coast Hurricane Threat

At a Glance

A tropical wave will likely develop in the northwestern Caribbean.

It is expected to be a rainmaker for Jamaica, Cuba and the Cayman Islands.

This system will enter the Gulf of Mexico by midweek, likely as a tropical storm.

When it becomes a tropical storm, it will be named Delta.

It is expected to become a hurricane before it reaches the northern Gulf Coast.

A tropical wave is expected to threaten the northern Gulf Coast as a hurricane toward the end of the week following strikes in the northwestern Caribbean.

A tropical wave accompanied by a small low pressure system is moving over the central Caribbean Sea toward the northwestern Caribbean and is showing some signs of organization.

The National Hurricane Season has given this disturbance, dubbed Potential Tropical Cyclone 26, a high chance of developing into a tropical depression.

The NHC expects this system to intensify and organize into a tropical storm and has issued the following wind watches and warnings in coordination with local governments:

A tropical storm warning has been issued for the Cayman Islands where tropical storm conditions are expected in the beginning late Monday.

A hurricane watch for the Isle of Youth and the Cuba provinces of Pinar del Rio and Artemisa in western Cuba, where hurricane conditions are possible by Tuesday afternoon.

A tropical storm watch has been issued for the Cuban province of La Habana.

Current Watches and Warnings

This disturbance will continue to push west-northward over the next several days, and conditions are expected to become more conducive for development and intensification. A tropical depression is likely to form within the next day or so.

Computer models suggest that this system will become a tropical storm by Monday. When it does, it will become Delta.

Strong winds and heavy rain will be possible across portions of Jamaica, Cuba and the Cayman Islands during the next few days.

A storm surge will raise water levels by as much as 3 to 5 feet above normal tide levels along the southern coast of western Cuba and on the Isle of Youth into Tuesday.

This system will then likely track into the southern or southeastern Gulf of Mexico Tuesday night or Wednesday as a strengthening tropical storm or hurricane.

The National Hurricane Center expects what will likely be named Delta to be a Category 1 or 2 hurricane as it approaches the northern Gulf Coast, likely packing a storm surge, strong winds and heavy rain, by Friday.

Tropical-storm-force Wind Arrival Times

(This is when winds of 40 mph may arrive and when it is too late to finish preparations. )

October Typically Sees a Shift Closer to Home

With the change in the seasons and the cooling of temperatures, we start to see less tropical activity in the open Atlantic.

Even though the climatological peak of the hurricane season – Sept. 10 – has passed, residents along the Gulf and East coasts need to remain prepared for a hurricane.

Roughly one-fifth of all U.S. hurricane landfalls have occurred in October and November.

(MORE: What the Busiest Hurricane Seasons Have Delivered in October)

Tropical waves begin to weaken and become less impressive while North American cold fronts begin to dip their toes into the Gulf of Mexico, providing additional sources for tropical activity.

The Central American Gyre (or CAG) develops in October, a large, broad low pressure system that hovers over Central America. The CAG spins off tropical depressions and tropical storms into the Caribbean and eastern Pacific on occasion. Those systems typically move north and eastward toward Cuba and Florida.

The cold fronts occasionally spawn tropical systems in the Atlantic, which are typically swiftly moved away from the United States.

The Indian Nuclear Horn

Explained: What is India’s K missile family | Explained News,The Indian Express

Updated: October 5, 2020 1:04:42 am

The development of these naval platform launched missiles began in the late 1990s as a step towards completing India’s nuclear triad — the capability of launching nuclear weapons from land, sea and air based assets.

These submarines can not only survive a first strike by the adversary but also can launch a strike in retaliation thus achieving Credible Nuclear Deterrence. (File)

A successful trial of the nuclear capable Shaurya missile was conducted by India, the news agency ANI reported Saturday. Shaurya is a land-based parallel of the submarine launched K-15 missile. These ballistic weapons belong to the K missile family — codenamed after late Dr APJ Abdul Kalam — which are launched from Arihant class of nuclear submarines.

A look at what this family of missiles is, their strategic importance as a nuclear deterrent and their recent tests.

The K Family of missiles

The K family of missiles are primarily Submarine Launched Ballistic Missiles (SLBMs), which have been indigenously developed by Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and are named after Dr Kalam, the centre figure in India’s missile and space programmes who also served as the 11th President of India.

The development of these naval platform launched missiles began in the late 1990s as a step towards completing India’s nuclear triad — the capability of launching nuclear weapons from land, sea and air based assets.

Because these missiles are to be launched from submarines, they are lighter, smaller and stealthier than their land-based counterparts, the Agni series of missiles which are medium and intercontinental range nuclear capable ballistic missiles. While K family are primarily submarine-fired missiles to be fired from India’s Arihant class nuclear powered platforms, the land and air variants of some of its members have also been developed by the DRDO.

Shaurya, whose user trial was conducted on Saturday, is a land variant of short range SLBM K-15 Sagarika, which has a range of at least 750 kilometers.

India has also developed and successfully tested multiple times the K-4 missiles from the family which has a range of 3500 km. It is reported that more members of K-family — reportedly to have been codenamed K-5 and K-6 — with ranges of 5000 and 6000 km are also under development. The early development trials of K-15 and K-4 missiles had begun in the early 2010s.

The strategic importance of SLBMs

The capability of being able to launch nuclear weapons submarine platforms has great strategic importance in context of achieving a nuclear triad, especially in the light of ‘no first use’ policy of India. The sea-based underwater nuclear capable assets significantly increases the second strike capability of a country and thus boosts its nuclear deterrence. These submarines can not only survive a first strike by the adversary but also can launch a strike in retaliation thus achieving Credible Nuclear Deterrence. The 2016 commissioned nuclear powered Arihant submarine and its class members which in the pipeline, are the assets capable of launching missiles with nuclear warheads.

The development of these capabilities is important in light of India’s relations with the two neighbours China and Pakistan. With China having deployed many of its submarines, including some which are nuclear powered and nuclear capable, this capacity building is crucial for India’s nuclear deterrence. In November 2018, after INS Arihant became fully operational, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had tweeted, “In an era such as this, a credible nuclear deterrence is the need of the hour. The success of INS Arihant gives a fitting response to those who indulge in nuclear blackmail.”

The recent tests

In the third week of January this year, DRDO conducted two successful tests of the K-4 missile from submerged platforms off the coast of Andhra Pradesh in a span of six days. These tests were a key step towards ultimately deploying K-4 on INS Arihant, which already has K-15 onboard. In the Saturday’s test, Shaurya was examined for several advanced parameters compared to its earlier tests, according to sources.

Shaurya, like many of the modern missiles, is a canister-based system, which means that it is stored and operated from specially designed compartments. In the canister, the inside environment is controlled thus along with making its transport and storage easier, the shelf life of weapons also improves significantly.

While DRDO has been conducting these tests, there has not been any official communication from the agency about them, possibly because of classified nature of K family missile projects and their close link to the Advanced Technology Vehicle (ATV) project of which Arihant class vessels are part of. These recent tests of these systems can also be looked at as a strong message to China and Pakistan in light of the present situation in the region.

15 Palestinians arrested outside the Temple Walls: Revelation 11

15 Palestinians arrested in Gaza within a month

October 3, 2020 at 1:01 pm

A Palestinian expert on prisoners’ affairs announced on Friday that Israel has arrested 15 Palestinians within the last month in the Gaza Strip.

This came in a statement made by Head of the Studies and Documentation Department at the Palestinian Prisoners‘ Affairs Authority Abdul–Nasser Farwana to Anadolu Agency.

Farwana explained that:

The occupation authorities arrested 14 Palestinians while they were crossing the Gaza Strip borders into the occupied territories, while a cancer patient was also arrested at the Erez Crossing, in the northern Gaza Strip, last September.

He continued: “The number of arrests have significantly increased in September compared to August, during which only one arrest occurred in Gaza.”

Farwana added: “Most of the detainees were allowed to return to the Gaza Strip after being interrogated for a few hours.”

The Israeli forces prohibited Palestinians in Gaza from entering the so-called buffer zone, while arresting or shooting anyone who approached the area.

Earlier on Friday, the Israeli army arrested Hamas leader Hassan Yousef in his home in Ramallah, two months after his release, in an escalation that Hamas and Fatah strongly condemned.

Israel is currently holding around 5,000 Palestinians in its prisons, including 43 women and 180 children, while keeping 340 under administrative detention. Additionally, 700 detainees of poor health are also being held in Israeli jails, according to data from the Prisoners and Executives Affairs Authority.
