Lessons From Nepal

i just want to tell PPL about the 1992 Big Bear Earthquake, originally listed as 8.0, revised to 6.5 (it was 8), happened 25 miles from my front door, as the Crow flies.

my home was built in 1940, and is Concrete Construction. apparently, the Regulations regarding Earthquake 'proofing', were STILL better than the Building Regulations in Nepal, a sm Country that, historically, has MORE Earthquakes than Calif. my house suffered NO damage, even though the intensity was probably equal to the recent killer Quake in Nepal.

Baltimore and The Angry Black Man (aka Pat-Riot)

I am a single parent of a 16 year old that I have raised from birth alone. When she was about 6 years old, I took her to the grocery store to do our weekly shopping. We were in a predominately white suburb of Southern California. As I was about to park, a woman backed out of a parking space (without observing through traffic) and came very close to causing an accident. I honked the horn so she would stop, and she proceeded to exhibit her middle finger to me.

Who Will Stop World War III?

Thom plus logo Back in 2001, after 9/11, Congress gave the president the authority to basically wage war anywhere in the world where there were governments affiliated with Al Qaeda, the radical Sunni Muslim group that came out of the Saudi Wahhabist movement.
