Earthquake Global plate tectonic movement Earthquakes are measured using observations from seismometers. The moment magnitude is the most common scale on which earthquakes larger than approximately 5 are reported for the entire globe. The more numerous earthquakes smaller than magnitude 5 reported by national seismological observatories are measured mostly on the local magnitude scale, also referred to as the Richter scale. These two scales are numerically similar over their range of validity.

The whale shark (Rhincodon typus) is a slow-moving filter feeding shark and the largest known extant fish species. The largest confirmed individual had a length of 12.65 m (41.50 ft) and a weight of more than 21.5 metric tons (47,000 lb), and unconfirmed reports of considerably larger whale sharks exist. Claims of individuals over 14 m (46 ft) long and weighing at least 30 mt (66,000 lb) are not uncommon. The whale shark holds many records for sheer size in the animal kingdom, most notably being by far the largest living nonmammalian vertebrate, rivalling many of the largest dinosaurs in weight. It is the sole member of the genus Rhincodon and the family, Rhincodontidae (called Rhiniodon and Rhinodontidae before 1984), which belongs to the subclass Elasmobranchii in the class Chondrichthyes. The species originated about 60 million years ago. Whale shark

D4 Digital SLR Camera | SLR Digital Cameras Answer: I am a loyal Nikon Lover, so yes the extra money is worth it...to me...I would say the best you can do is look at specs for both cameras and then decide the pros and cons of each camera and decide which will better suit you...and your needs...Myself , I would never switch over brands because of all the money invested in lenses n such, and , to be honest , most real world photographers will not see the pros and cons in any model when it comes down to it... I have never read any spec on a Canon in 15 years or so that would make me change to that brand ...I have an older D2X, Nikons Flagship Model in 2005-2006, and the difference in this camera and a D4 is like night and day for the most part...

But other groups of collectors have their own less-heralded nouns, too. Here are just a few other words you can break out the next time you meet a collector: 1.
How Did the Duck Hunt Gun Work? If you’re a geek of a certain age, a good portion of your childhood probably revolved around sitting too close to the TV, clutching a plastic safety cone-colored hand gun and blasting waterfowl out of a pixilated sky in Duck Hunt (also, trying to blow that dog’s head off when he laughed at you). The Duck Hunt gun, officially called the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) Zapper, seems downright primitive next to the Nintendo’s Wii and Microsoft’s Kinect, but in the late 80s, it filled plenty of young heads with wonder.

How did “555” become the convention for fake phone numbers, and are there any real 555 numbers? Let’s dial up some answers. Why do TV and movies need the fake 555 numbers? Just ask anyone who had the misfortune of having the number 867-5309 how their life changed after Tommy Tutone's 15 minutes of fame.
Every morning when I wake up, I’ve got stalagmites of crust in my eyes. What is this stuff, and where does it come from? That crust is a type of rheum, a thin mucus naturally discharged from our eyes, noses and mouths. Rheum is made up of mucus, skin cells, oils and dust. The rheum that comes from the eyes and forms eye boogers is called gound, which you may know as eye sand, eye gunk, sleep dust, sleep sand, sleep in your eyes, or eye shnooters. What Are Eye Boogers, Anyway?
