Los Angeles cancels Columbus Day

Columbus Day is no more in the nation’s second-largest city in nation second largest city.  The Los Angeles City Council voted 14-1 on Wednesday to officially mark the second Monday in October as Indigenous Peoples Day on the city’s calendar — a day to commemorate “indigenous, aboriginal and native people.”

“Removing Columbus Day and replacing it with Indigenous Peoples Day is the appropriate action for this city to take,” O’Farrell wrote. “We must send a signal to Washington D.C. that there is no better day to honor our original inhabitants while highlighting the absurdity of celebrating a historical figure responsible for such profound suffering, still felt by generations of Indigenous People everywhere. This is more than symbolic. It is spiritually and morally necessary.”

This fault could bring an earthquake worse than ‘The Big One’

March 30, 2014|By Rong-Gong Lin II

 

The Puente Hills fault, which scientists believe could be responsible for Friday’s 5.1 earthquake in La Habra, is considered very dangerous.

Here are some basic questions about the fault.

Q: What would be the difference in shaking between a 5.1 quake and a truly huge quake?

Friday night’s earthquake was caused by the underground fault slipping for half a second, said U.S. Geological Survey seismologist Lucy Jones, prompting about 10 seconds of shaking at the surface.

But a 7.5 quake on the Puente Hills fault could cause the fault to slip for 20 seconds — and the shaking could last far longer.

Scientists say that quake would be more destructive than the so-called Big One on the San Andreas fault.

Q: Why are scientists so worried about the fault?

The Puente Hills thrust fault is so dangerous because of its location, running from the suburbs of northern Orange County, through the San Gabriel Valley and under the skyscrapers of downtown Los Angeles before ending in Hollywood.

2 Big Faults Found Deep Under Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 5— In a finding that may unsettle the nerves of millions of Southern Californians, geologists have discovered two major faults deep below some of the most densely developed parts of the Los Angeles metropolitan area.

The area affected includes the downtown section, the Wilshire Boulevard corridor, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica and a complex of oil refineries and power utilities near the Pacific Ocean.

The discovery, along with the gradual realization among geologists that as many as half of all the faults in the Los Angeles area may lie deep underground and have yet to be discovered, presumably doubles the risk that a devastating earthquake will eventually occur in the metropolitan area, said Don Anderson, director of the seismology laboratory at the California Insitute of Technology. But scientists do not know enough about these faults to calculate the actual risk.

State disaster officials, who have been aware of the new findings for months, said that in their planning they had long anticipated the possibility of such an event. They said Los Angeles residents should not be unduly alarmed by the discovery of the faults. Report to Be Given Today

Unlike the region’s previously known faults, which produce visible features on the earth’s surface, the new faults are ”in the basement” and have no such features at ground level, said Dr. Egill Hauksson, a research assistant professor of geophysics at the University of Southern California.

Dr. Hauksson is scheduled to give a report Tuesday describing the faults, which are 6 to 10 miles beneath the streets of Los Angeles, at a session of the American Geophysical Union’s annual meeting in San Francisco.

This is the ”first evidence that there are major buried faults beneath L.A.,” Dr. Hauksson said in a interview. ”Before we had one big fault locally, the Newport-Inglewood fault, and now we have three.”

The San Andreas fault, estimated to have a 60 percent probability of generating a catastrophic earthquake in Southern California within the next 30 years, lies 30 or more miles north and east of the Los Angeles metropolitan area. The San Andreas, which is much larger than the various faults in the immediate Los Angeles area, is believed capable of producing a much more powerful earthquake.

Scientists believe the newly discovered faults will cause serious earthquakes much less frequently than the San Andreas fault. Emergency Teams Are Ready

Dr. Richard Andrews, deputy director of the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services, who is responsible for overseeing earthquake planning in Southern California, said residents of the Los Angeles area should not worry that officials were unprepared to cope with potential dangers from the new faults. For several years now, he said, disaster preparedness officials have assumed that unknown faults capable of generating moderately severe earthquakes could exist anywhere in Los Angeles. Firefighters, police officers and medical response teams are ready for such an event, he added.

Nevertheless, in earlier written reports on seismic hazards, Dr. Andrews and others have noted that faults lying close to densely populated areas posed special risks. They have warned, for example, that a rupture of the Newport-Inglewood fault, a 40-mile surface fracture running through many populated neighborhoods, could rupture gas lines and lead to a firestorm that might kill and injure more people than would a larger earthquake on the more distant San Andreas fault.

In an interview last week, Dr. Hauksson said he began to track down the new faults in the aftermath of an earthquake that struck the town of Whittier, just east of downtown Los Angeles, on Oct. 1, 1987. The quake registered 5.9 on the Richter scale of energy released and ground motion. To everyone’s surprise, he said, the epicenter was nine miles beneath Whittier on a previously unknown fault that has turned out to be a small segment of a long underground fault extending beneath Los Angeles.

The Whittier earthquake and its aftershocks killed 8 people, injured 200 and caused an estimated $358 million in damage. Two Major Types of Faults

There are two major types of earthquake faults, Dr. Hauksson said. Strike-slip faults occur when large sections of the earth’s crust, called plates, scrape past one another in opposite directions horizontally. The San Andreas fault, which runs the length of California, is a strike-slip fault.

The two newly discovered faults are thrust faults, in which slabs of compressed rock move vertically past one another. The thrust faults tend to be smaller than strike-slip faults and often release less energy.

Because thrust faults move more slowly than strike-slip faults, Dr. Hauksson said, the interval between large earthquakes on them should be 500 to 1,000 years. The San Andreas fault, by comparison, generates large earthquakes on the average of every 160 years. Unfortunately, the historical record of Los Angeles earthquakes did not begin until the early 1800’s, he said, so it is impossible to predict when segments of the newly found thrust faults will rupture.

To look for the postulated fault, Dr. Hauksson examined seismic data from more than 200 small earthquakes, ranging from 2.5 to 4.0 on the Richter scale, that occurred in the Los Angeles area in the last 10 years.

The magnitude of earthquakes is measured on the Richter scale, on which every increase of one number represents a a tenfold increase in ground motion and a thirtyfold increase in energy released. Quakes that measure 5.0 on the Richter scale are strong enough to cause local damage, at 6.0 severe damage and at 7.0 widepread heavy damage. An earthquake with a magnitude of 8.0 is catastrophic. Different Patterns Produced

Thrust and strike-slip faults produce different patterns, Dr. Hauksson said. Using a geological technique called fault plane solution, he soon inferred the configuration of not one but two ”new” thrust faults.

One, named the Elysian fault, begins in Corona, east of Los Angeles. Its 60-mile route runs under Whittier, where the first segment was detected last year, under Dodger Stadium, beneath downtown high-rise buildings, out under Wilshire Boulevard and into Santa Monica Bay.

The second newly discovered thrust fault, named the Wilmington-Torrance fault, runs 40 miles from Newport Beach, under the oil fields at Wilmington, under Long Beach and San Pedro, beneath Palos Verdes and Torrance and out into Santa Monica Bay, Dr. Hauksson said.

The Elysian fault is fragmented into five segments, he said, and the Wilmington-Torrance fault into three segments.

The 10-year data base indicates that the two faults are active, Dr. Hauksson said. The largest segments, including one that runs from Whittier to downtown Los Angeles and out to Beverly Hills and Baldwin Hills, should be able to generate an earthquake with a magnitude of up to 6.8, he said map of faults running through Los Angeles (pg.

TREASON Committed by the “THE MEDIA ” in 1960 and 2013

This is of National and International Importance
(U.S. military and US citizens living abroad Overseas).

By Addie M. Miller

For over a HALF A CENTURY, THE MEDIA has manipulated the United States America’s voters to see what they want people to see.

This is far beyond injustice, but actual TREASON nationally and internationally by perverting the People’s Will by withholding vital information in the voting process, like the full slate of candidates for any elected office.

For example, someone was born in 1960 they would be 55 years old.

Many never would had imagine the there were 2 other candidates besides Kennedy and Nixon in the 11/08/1960 presidential election which actually had a total of 4 candidates.

Yet the MEDIA controls the airwaves then 1960 and now 2015.

Also, many loyal U.S. men and women serving our country in the military are being deceive by the MEDIA until someone intercedes.

This must stop!

Allowing the CORPORATE CONTROLLED MEDIA to choose who the People know about and who they don’t know are running for elected office is voter manipulation.

VOTER MANIPULATION IS TREASON – GOING AGAINST THE VOTED WILL OF THE PEOPLE.

For democracy to function properly, the voting public must be fully informed. Manipulation, for the voting population of the United States, controls the country with lies.

In 2013 the MEDIA manipulated the people as to there were 5 mayoral candidates for the City of Los Angeles mayoral election, when in fact it was untrue.

Just like the 1960 presidential election and once again THE MEDIA acted High Treason to the voters who are citizens of the United States of America.

WALKING WITH THE POOR CELEBRATING 200 YEARS OF SERVICE There are all kinds of Poor people.

WALKING WITH THE POOR CELEBRATING
200 YEARS OF SERVICE
SAINTS AND SERVANTS OF THE POOR GIVE THEMSELVES TO THE POOR. ”
WHO ARE THE POOR! There are all kinds of Poor people. The Poor is not always about money!
1. The Poor can be someone Poor in Spirit.
2. The Poor can be someone who lacks love in their life.
3. The Poor can be someone who lacks and has no compassion.
4. The Poor may be someone who is rich and Poor in Health. One can be rich, but if their health is bad they are Poor.
5. Someone who has no true good relationships or true friends are Poor.
6. The Poor maybe someone who has no purpose and is walking in life with no purpose.
7. The Poor maybe someone who makes others suffer for Greed and/or Power.
8. The Poor and Poverty is not just about money.
9. The Poor is someone who does not know Christ Jesus.

St. Vincent de Paul WALKING WITH THE POOR CELEBRATING 200 YEARS OF SERVICE; Not for prize”, “not for money” and “not for greed” and certainly not for government money, not for expensive automobiles, high price homes and not to be in the pockets of elected officials who are supposed to serve the people, not just the elected officials’ buddies who they give or/divide money contracts too.

To be some of these elected officials who represent the people are a SHAME BEFORE GOD and needs to be Impeach and prosecuted.

READ the following of what a true example of serving the people for 200 years.

St. Vincent de Paul was a true example to serving the people.

St. Vincent de Paul lived with a passion for the poor.
His passion went well beyond concern for the poor. Vincent encouraged his followers to draw close to the poor.
Live with them. Walk with them every step of the way. In this way, he proclaimed, we meet Christ in them and we are evangelized by them.
