Larger Shocks May Occur
Cluster of at least 9 shocks strike offshore Oregon
Earthquake measuring about 5.4Mw struck the offshore Oregon about 500km west of Eugene on Friday, May 07, 2010 at 17:46:15UTC.
Epicenter of the earthquake was located near 44.396°N, 129.437°W and occurred at a depth of 10 km (6.2 miles). The initial shock was followed by at least 8 other events [aftershocks] measuring a mean magnitude of about 4.4Mw.
Center of the cluster was about 1,000km (600 miles) south of a magnitude 8.1 shock that occurred on the Queen Charlotte Fault off Queen Charlotte Island on August 22, 1949. That event was Canada’s largest earthquake since 1700.

Suzie-Q's post about the banksters and A99 led me to the world of finance and...

MK: Suicidal bankers are buying US dollars and shorting paper Silver. We know who they are and we’re coming for them.
Max Kaiser. Why haven't I heard about this guy before? Maybe because I don't follow business and finance, but I will now. Max has taken the world of finance and banking to a whole new level. His concept of KARMAbANQUE is brilliant. One thing that I have gleaned from this is that silver is indeed a precious metal, Being of modest income, I am not a buyer of gold, but I do have some silver around and I guess that it's time to stash it away where the bank$ters don't find it.

Gingrich virtually a candidate with new 2012 website
The just-launched website for Newt Gingrich’s presidential water testing is as thin as his minutes-long announcement at the Georgia state Capitol.
Paid for by Newt Exploratory 2012, the site offers little of the substance that Gingrich is known for - missing are the videos, statements, policy positions, and other information that usually fill a potential candidate’s web space.
Unveiled minutes after he finished speaking on Thursday, NewtExplore2012.com pictures a large photo of the former House Speaker and his wife, Callista, on the homepage.
Think Progress, a website from the Center for American Progress, reported that the stock photos of supporters Gingrich uses include a photo that was also used on the website of the late Sen. Ted Kennedy.
Gingrich's wife receives prominent display on the site just days after the former House speaker, who has been married three times, was confronted by a Democratic student activist at the University of Pennsylvania about his admitted extramarital affair.
"We are a nation like no other. To remain so will require the dedicated participation of every citizen, of every neighborhood, of every background. This is the responsibility of a free people," reads a message from Gingrich and his wife, who serves as president of Gingrich Productions, posted on the site.

When Henry Waxman speaks, it's like listening to my Uncle Henry in the old days. The message is straight forward, honest, and carries a sort of authority that is rarely seen in todays political theatre. I'm sure that he has an agenda, but it seems to be about accountability, a trait that is sorely lacking in most representatives of the people. If Steney Hoyer or, on the Repugnican side John Boehner, was on the podium, my thoughts would immediately turn to* "6 lobbyist's for every congre$$man". I'm sure that Waxman has a few hanging around too, but I bet they have plenty of respect, and maybe even a little bit of fear, when approaching the man who tells it like it is.
Fighting Back: Defending Our Public Health
Representative Henry A. Waxman
March 7, 2011, 10:00am – 11:00am
About This Event
The recent unrest in the Middle East has sent oil and gasoline prices up, yet another reminder of our vulnerability from imported oil. Oil and America's other persistent energy problems demand attention—reducing oil use, protecting our health by reducing air pollution, and boosting our economic competitiveness. Rather than address these challenges, however, House Republicans have substantially cut programs that safeguard public health and invest in clean technologies, and seek to strip the EPA's authority to limit mercury, smog, and carbon pollution. Their proposed disinvestments in energy efficiency and renewable technologies would wave the white flag of surrender in the international race to lead the clean-tech industry in the 21st century.
