BREAKING NEWS : CALIFORNIA AT RISK OF DEVASTATING MEGAQUAKE

Fears rise as a chain of killer quakes hit the Pacific 'Ring of Fire'
After a 6.1 magnitude earthquake hit New Zealand on Wednesday followed by temblors off the coasts of Japan (6.1), Vanuatu (6.4), and Indonesia (5.7) early Thursday morning, others in its path – including California – are wondering if they could be next.Roughly 90 percent of the world’s earthquakes occur in this belt, which loops from New Zealand to Chile, passing through the coasts of Asia and the Americas on the way.
 

In the span of just 24 hours this week, a series of powerful earthquakes rocked several locations along the Pacific one by one this week, all in a seismic region known as the ‘Ring of Fire’ - and experts say they can't rule out Californiabeing next.

Roughly 90 percent of the world’s earthquakes occur in this belt, which loops from New Zealand to Chile, passing through the coasts of Asia and the Americas on the way.

Now, after a 6.1 magnitude earthquake hit New Zealand on Wednesday followed by temblors off the coasts of Japan (6.1), Vanuatu (6.4), and Indonesia(5.7) early Thursday morning, others in its path – including California – are wondering if they could be next.

After a 6.1 magnitude earthquake hit New Zealand on Wednesday followed by temblors off the coasts of Japan (6.1), Vanuatu (6.4), and Indonesia (5.7) early Thursday morning, others along the Ring of Fire ¿ including California ¿ are wondering if they could be next. But, experts say offshore quakes happen in the region all the time, and go unnoticed 

Experts say the series of earthquakes could have been caused by seismic waves travelling along fault lines and triggering ruptures in the Ring of Fire, also known as the Circum-Pacific belt.

But, this doesn’t necessarily mean California or other areas of the West Coast will be affected by the events.

Accordingto Dr. Christopher Pluhar, a professor of Geology at Fresno State, the plates in this seismic region are in constant motion, at a rate of 1-10 centimeters per year.

While this can cause earthquakes, they often go unnoticed.

‘All of the time, it’s happening and there’s no damage. So we don’t notice,’ Pluhar told KMPH.

 

CALIFORNIA PLANS FOR 'THE BIG ONE' 

Federal, state and military officials have been working together to draft plans to be followed when the 'Big One' happens.

These contingency plans reflect deep anxiety about the potential gravity of the looming disaster: upward of 14,000 people dead in the worst-case scenarios, 30,000 injured, thousands left homeless and the region's economy setback for years, if not decades.

As a response, what planners envision is a deployment of civilian and military personnel and equipment that would eclipse the response to any natural disaster that has occurred so far in the US.

There would be waves of cargo planes, helicopters and ships, as well as tens of thousands of soldiers, emergency officials, mortuary teams, police officers, firefighters, engineers, medical personnel and other specialists.

'The response will be orders of magnitude larger than Hurricane Katrina or Super Storm Sandy,' said Lt. Col. Clayton Braun of the Washington State Army National Guard.

A bedoon man set himself on fire in front of police station

 

A bedoon man set himself on fire in front of the AlNaeem police station in Kuwait today. The motive for the man’s action was not immediately clear. There are more than a hundred thousand stateless Arabs living in Kuwait without passports or nationality. They are known as “bedoon” meaning ‘without’, and many of them are unable to go to school, work legally or travel due to their irregular status. This is the first incident of self-immolation. No official statement has been issued by the authorities regarding the incident.

IRAQ TO START EXPORTING GAS TO KUWAIT SOON

Iraq is close to exporting crude gas to Kuwait as part of an agreement between the two sides, Oil Minister Jabbar al-Luaibi said on Thursday.

"The joint technical committee between Iraq and Kuwait has taken advanced and important steps to expedite the implementation of the agreement for the export of Iraqi crude gas surplus from the need of Iraq from the Rumaila field to the brotherly Kuwait," al-Allaibi said in a statement to the News Agency.
"The Joint Commission has completed all relevant procedures and is now finalizing the implementation of the agreement in the near future," he added.
 
Al-Allaibi pointed out that "the agreement provides for the export of 50 million cubic feet per day of crude gas from the Rumaila field in the province of Basra within the first phase up to (200) million standard cubic feet per day within the second phase of the Convention."
On the other hand, al-Luaibi welcomed the ratification by the brotherly Kuwaiti side of the memorandum of understanding signed between the Iraqi and Kuwaiti oil ministries and the issuance of an Amiri decree approving the provisions of the memorandum on the development and exploitation of the common border fields in the interest of the two brotherly countries.
 
He said this is a great achievement achieved after decades, which puts things in perspective and contributes to the settlement of all outstanding issues between the two brotherly countries and works to strengthen bilateral relations between the two countries and expand investment opportunities and prospects for joint cooperation.
 
Al-Luaibi praised the Kuwaiti brothers' position and their sincere desire to cooperate seriously and to harness all available resources to support Iraq and its dear people.

In a Facebook live, Thackeray said that Modi had agreed for a quid pro quo deal with Ibrahim so that he could use this as a big achievement in 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

“Dawood wants to come back to India. He is involved in talks with the Centre regarding this. He himself wants to come back to India as he is handicapped and wants to spend his last days in India. While Dawood wants to come back on his own, the BJP will use it by getting him back before the elections to get votes,” he was quoted by Times Now channel.

CNN-News18 quoted him as saying, “Dawood is in talks with BJP for returning to India. He’s trying for a settlement with Centre, but the government will portray it as its victory.”

He also called Modi a ‘liar’ reminding how he had supported him in the aftermath of the 2002 Gujarat genocide.

The MNS chief expressed his displeasure over bullet train project between Ahmedabad and Mumbai asking why this project was not taking place in other cities such as Kolkata.

Dawood is wanted by India for his alleged role in the 1993 serial blasts that had killed over 200 people.

600 skeletons discovered from rapist Ram Rahim’s Dera in Sirsa

In a shocking development, more than 600 skeletons have been discovered from what used to be the headquarter of the rapist Gurmeet Singh, now jailed for raping two of his followers.

600 skeletons

Officials suspect that these skeletons may have been the bodies of those killed and buried by the rapist baba. One theory being floated by the Dera officials is that they were the bodies of Dera supporters, who had wished to be buried inside the premises.Police have launched a full-blown investigation into the discovery of such a large number of human skeletons. Gurmeet is already facing two murder charges including that of the journalist, whose newspaper had carried the anonymous letter of one of his female followers alleging rape against the rapist baba. He was sentenced to 20 years of jail in that case.

The rapist baba has also been accused of murdering those, who challenged his authority in the past. Gurmeet was known to have run a parallel empire inside the Dera premises, spread over 600-acre.

 
He enjoyed political patronage of both BJP and Congress governments in the past. The political parties failed to take action against him to take advantage of his huge vote-bank among his followers- 1.5 crore in numbers.

BJP leaders were particularly close to Gurmeet and donated more than Rs 1 crore in the last few years. In 2014, after winning the Haryana assembly elections, BJP’s Kailash Vijayvargiya had paraded all the newly elected MLAs in front of the rapist baba. Justifying his decision, Vijayvargiya had said that there was nothing wrong in seeking the rapist Gurmeet’s blessings.

The mysterious 'SSSS' code you NEVER want to see on your boarding card before flying

Airline passengers who find 'SSSS' stamped on their boarding passes will face extra security checks and delays, it has been revealed.

This is because the innocuous looking code, which applies to travellers flying into the United States, stands for 'Secondary Security Screening Selection'. 

It means the pass holder has been selected to undergo a more extensive security screening process before boarding their flight that can take up to half an hour. 

The screening process, which may include bag searches, pat downs and validating identity, is conducted by the Transportation Security Administration.

The TSA insists travellers who receive the 'SSSS' are selected at random, but some have claimed they are pulled aside most times they travel, according to mamamia.com.

Buying one-way tickets or paying in cash could land passengers on the TSA's secret list and lead to frequent 'SSSS' checks, the publication said.

A passenger may be able to tell they will have to undergo additional checks if they are unable to print their boarding pass at the airport's self-check-in. 

According to Seth Weinstein, a U.S. customs attorney, the Department of Homeland Security and and Customs and Border Protection use the Terrorist Screening Database maintained by the Terrorist Screening Center to determine who qualifies for Secondary Security Screening Selection.

Failure to take part in the enhanced security screening will result in the traveler being denied boarding.

The scheme was introduced after the 9/11 terror attacks, to help security officials monitor potentially dangerous individuals from entering or leaving the U.S. 

But travelers can request to be removed from the Secondary Security Screening Selection List by submitting documentation and evidence to the Traveller Redress Inquiry Program. 

Annoyed passengers have complained about the length security process on social media. 

Frequent traveller Touring Tony said on Twitter: 'TSA, why do you SSSS me every time I travel to the Mideast? Come on already, can't Americans travel freely without harassment?'
