Just caught this on CNN:
www.cnn.com...


(CNN) -- The powerful earthquake that unleashed a devastating tsunami Friday appears to have moved the main island of Japan by 8 feet (2.4 meters) and shifted the Earth on its axis.


Anyone have any data on how much the axis shifted?
Moved the island of Japan 8 feet??? That is pretty major!

edit to add...

www.montrealgazette.com...


Initial results out of Italy's National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology show that the 8.9-magnitude earthquake that rattled Japan Friday shifted the earth's rotation axis by about 25 centimetres.

You can make "restricted donations" at any time by simply stating that your donation is only to be used for X usage. The organization doesn't have to have a specific campaign, and they don't need to tell you where your money goes, by law, unless you ask. When you just give money with no strings, they can use it for whatever they want.

But remember----how will the ARC get any help to Japan without paying their employees and bills? They can't. That's why some of the donations need to go to non-Japan things, in order to help Japan. The ARC spends a lot of money to keep its structure intact, so they can just roll up in any emergency and actually help, right away. They can't do that if everyone says "only use my money directly for this campaign." Unrestricted donations are fine if the organization is a good one. Make sure your organization is a good one, and then just give them unrestricted money. If they're cheats, they'll find a way around the restrictions anyways.

I will follow this instruction, but I am pretty befuddled as to why the subject ought to be broken in two. The radiological threat is a part of the unfolding drama caused by the quake , and as such belongs HERE, not in a thread of its own.

10ft(25cm) was the last statement on BBC yesterday.

That's been reported on this thread about 1,000 times already.

If it's not breaking news within the last 5 minutes, don't report it here. It's already been mentioned.

Not trying to get you out of here , but maybe you have a good topic for a separate thread there? what do you think?


thanks for teh suggestion wolf
Not sure. There seems to be a lot of information being passed on here. Perhaps another thread might just cause things to get spaced around too much

but if you feel it is worth starting- I would second it, and work with it.
If you build it, he will come...

I think this says much for the Japanese - there have been no riots, no looting - hearing no reports of crime taking place.

I likely wouldn't be saying the same if something like that happened in North America.


1) It's winter in Japan too! Nobody riots when the temperature gets near freezing.

2) If they riot and loot.....there are no roads to escape with your loot....and no home to go to....and no outlets to plug your "new" appliances into.

3) on a more serious note.....the people are still in shock and the shaking (aftershocks) haven't ceased. Aftershocks measuring up to 6, btw.

Ouch. Pretty crazy.

Thanks for the quick response!

Such a tragic event, but Japan is close if not the top richest nation in the world. I would rather have my donations keep going to the countries that are poor 365 days out of the year.

Ok there. Exactly WHO are you?

Keep your thoughts to yourself - U2U me if you have any personal comments - otherwise, keep the thread on topic.

I asked a specific question, got my answer - I am not going to read 170+ pages. Stop acting like a newbie.

Oh wait... sorry, you are. Have some respect for older posters to these boards.

Axis shift 10ft.

I've only just started watching USGS, but are quakes of these magnitudes and depths normal?

There were a handful of these in Japan in the preceding week to the mega quake.

Also I've seen a lot of people posting that the quakes release energy, which in the most part is true

but along with the release of energy or at least the transformation of pressure energy stored in the

tectonic boundaries due to mantel convection into sound and kinetic energy, it doesn't all dissipate

through friction and heat, A lot of the energy "released" has now shifted and is stressing new or

different faults, this is evident in the immediate cluster of aftershocks, and will continue to be evident

in a further reaching range where the decrease in stress on that particular fault will result in an increase on others, tectonic mechanics dictates this.

In short, and simply to raise awareness, not to propagate fear, this is the beginning and we at ats
should be more vigilant in watching sites like USGS, preparedness is everything.

P.S theres no such thing as a microquake, only an indicator.

Plus it is just how they are. There is no loss for corruption and crime, it’s just they do not do the physical types that would be seen as instant dishonor, the other ways they can do invisible.

Whatever happened to human compassion? The Japanese must have the greatest capacity for forgiveness
considering what the American government did in return.

Pearl harbour : Naval Establishment
Hiroshima, Nagasaki : Populated Residential Area.

Sorry for the "off-topic" post but this just outrages me.
