Atlantic Ocean Floor Map

This distinctive physical map of the Atlantic Ocean floor appeared on National Geographic as a supplement to the map of the Atlantic. The detail of such submarine terrain as continental slopes, abyssal plains, and the mighty Mid-Atlantic Ridge is stunning.
Groundbreaking map of the ocean floor created by technician Marie Tharp and Professor Bruce Heezen, image via The Earth Institute, Columbia University. Together, Marie and Bruce rewrote 20th century geophysics by creating the first systematic, comprehensive map of the entire ocean floor. This paved the way for general acceptance of the theories of continental drift and plate tectonics.

Today in History

Today is Monday, May 22, the 142nd day of 2017. There are 223 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History:
On May 22, 1992, after a reign lasting nearly 30 years, Johnny Carson hosted NBC’s “Tonight Show” for the final time (Jay Leno took over as host three days later).
On this date:
In 1860, the United States and Japan exchanged ratifications of the Treaty of Amity and Commerce during a ceremony in Washington.
In 1913, the American Cancer Society was founded in New York under its original name, the American Society for the Control of Cancer.
In 1935, President Franklin D. Roosevelt appeared before Congress to explain his decision to veto a bill that would have allowed World War I veterans to cash in bonus certificates before their 1945 due date.
In 1939, the foreign ministers of Germany and Italy, Joachim von Ribbentrop and Galeazzo Ciano, signed a “Pact of Steel” committing the two countries to a military alliance.
In 1947, the Truman Doctrine was enacted as Congress appropriated military and economic aid for Greece and Turkey.
In 1960, an earthquake of magnitude 9.5, the strongest ever measured, struck southern Chile, claiming some 1,655 lives.
In 1967, a fire at the L’Innovation department store in Brussels killed 322 people. Poet and playwright Langston Hughes died in New York at age 65.
In 1968, the nuclear-powered submarine USS Scorpion, with 99 men aboard, sank in the Atlantic Ocean. (The remains of the sub were later found on the ocean floor 400 miles southwest of the Azores.)
In 1969, the lunar module of Apollo 10, with Thomas P. Stafford and Eugene Cernan aboard, flew to within nine miles of the moon’s surface in a dress rehearsal for the first lunar landing.
In 1972, President Richard Nixon began a visit to the Soviet Union, during which he and Kremlin leaders signed the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty. The island nation of Ceylon became the republic of Sri Lanka.
In 1981 “Yorkshire Ripper” Peter Sutcliffe was convicted in London of murdering 13 women and was sentenced to life in prison.
In 2011, a tornado devastated Joplin, Missouri, with winds up to 250 mph, claiming at least 159 lives and destroying about 8,000 homes and businesses.
Ten years ago: British prosecutors accused former KGB agent Andrei Lugovoi (AHN’-dray LOO’-goh-voy) of murder in the radioactive poisoning of Alexander Litvinenko (leet-vee-NYEN’-koh). (Russia, however, has refused to extradite Lugovoi.) Olympic gold medalist speedskater Apolo Anton Ohno and his professional dance partner, Julianne Hough (huhf), won ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars.”
Five years ago: The Falcon 9, built by billionaire businessman Elon Musk, sped toward the International Space Station with a load of groceries and other supplies, marking the first time a commercial spacecraft had been sent to the orbiting outpost. In Flint, Michigan, a drifter accused of faking car trouble, then stabbing strangers who came to his aid, was convicted of murdering handyman Arnold Minor after jurors rejected an insanity defense. (Elias Abuelazam (EE’-lee-us ah-BOOL’-ah-zahm) is serving a life sentence.) Wesley A.

Green Bay Packers receiver Donald Driver and his professional partner, Peta Murgatroyd, won “Dancing with the Stars” on ABC.

'Quake-Weather 25th May 2017': A Global Earthquake Review.


In this and similar reports we will be examining the global "earthquake weather", and we will be reporting where on the world our technique shows higher probability of siesmic vulnerability. Although we can do this for each and every one country by now, due to time contraints, the nature of the research, (we will be testing variant ideas), we will be listing out a few across the world. We hope this is useful to you, and certainly it will help us improve our techniques.

Using our methods we can deduce that for 25th May 2017, the following quakeweather and the following regions appear to be vulnerable to siesmic activity. Our experience shows that the time event tolerance can be +-1 day, and therefore it is worth keeping the list for 2 days as an event in the list could sometimes materialise the next day and sometimes the late hours of the previous day.

GLOBAL QUAKEWEATHER OVERVIEW: 
Geocentrically we have Moon conjunct Sun, semisq. Venus
Heliocentrically Earth quincunx mars, Venus sextile Neptune.
Looks like we are due for a STRONG earthquake globally. Our global calendar shows this is due today.
The following are some coordinates we produced using our methods.

AMERICAS:
  • California  (40.5N, 124.3W)
  • Mexico (16.4N, 97.2W)  (22,4N, 106.3W)
EUROPE:
  • Bosphorus (40.3N, 31.4E)
  • Greece   (37.3N, 22.4E) (37.3N, 25.4E)

ASIA/AUSTRALIA:   The possible countries which could come up are shown below. Not all of them I expect to fire up as we use a mix of predictive methods.
  • New Zealand  (40.3S, 175.3E)
  • PNG (7.2S, 145.3E)
  • Taiwan (25.4N, 121.4E)  (22.2N, 121.4E)
  • Philippines (16.4N, 121.4E)  (10.3N, 124.3E)
  • Indonesia (10.3S, 121.4E) (4.3S, 121.4E)
