The Fault Line And The People Living Along It

- The relationship between the fault line and the people living along it is a mixture of misconception, fear, and nonchalance. Movies such as this year’s blockbuster, San Andreas, have given people a skewed perception of what may happen when the next “big one” hits. For example, even the largest earthquake the San Andreas could produce could not cause a tsunami large enough to swell over San Francisco. “The really big tsunamis, like the one that hit Japan, are caused by earthquakes that generate a major displacement of the ocean floor,” says Thomas Jordan, director of the Southern California Earthquake Center....   [tags: Earthquake, Fault, California, Shear]

A No Fault

- Until 2011, Brazil was one of many countries that had not established the concept of a “no fault” divorce, also known as a dissolution of marriage. As such, partners would have to agree on a reason for divorcing, such as infidelity—and this was particularly cumbersome when one of the partners vehemently denied committing any unfaithful act. Peculiarly, until 2011, Brazil required a witness besides the two partners to testify that an affair had in fact taken place. Bizarre and unlikely as it seems that something like this could be documented, Rosella DeGambos would have to look no further than her own house to find such a witness— none other than her feathered friend Bozo the Cockatoo....   [tags: Divorce, Marriage, Alimony, Family law]

The Mortal World Is Not At Fault

- What is flawless. In the mortal world, perfection is simply an unobtainable idea that is constantly yearned for. Society has an ever-changing notion of what perfection should look like. Considering that society, as a mass of people and opinions, does not possess a physical essence, it can sneakily force these ideas into people 's subconscious.

This is geologically important, has economical significance and could save lives. Recognised FMs occur in carbonate rocks during presumed faulting which is a common occurrence in the earth’s upper crust (Barnhoon et al 2005), especially through Mediterranean countries such as Greece and Italy (Smith et al 2011)....   [tags: dead sea, atomic force microscopy]
