Tomorrow 24th June 2017

Tomorrow, 24th June 2017  is a day where we have the following Geocentric aspects active.          
 Mercury MAX Declination, MOON Max Declination. Heliocentrically, we have  Moon conj. SUN, Mars square Jupiter. We are expecting stronger activity than today for sure. Lets hope the overall subdued earthquake activity dampens all evnts which surface. However we certainly expect events which normally touch 7R. We will see if this actually appears, more likely in the range of 5-6.5Rin view of quiescence period.

The following countries sem to be vulnerable to some activity
  • Vanuatu
  • Romania
  • Turkey
  • Taiwan
  • Oklahoma
  • Fiji (strong expectation)
  • Ecuador
  • Iran
  • New Zealand (25th especially)
  • Italy (25th Especially)

6.8R offshore Guatemala.!

Well this first strong aftershock of similar magnitude as the previous event on 14th June 2017 close to the previous epicenter has been reported just minutes ago. It is a similar magnitude, and this to my experience is encouraging as future events I expect them of lower magnitude. We may have been the only people in the world to have predicted the first event in Guatemala (on 14th June), as well as the date the coordinates. Let us hope any future events deminish naturally and without danger.

Peaceful Morning

Good Day to all! A peaceful morning so far, with just one 5.4R in Kuril Islands!
Certainly it seems we all go through a subdued period as far as the magnitude of earthquakes. I do expect strong events however it seems we may see within a few days from now strong relative to a very quiet period. In other words all events look like modulated down!

Wilshire Grand Week: From the Street to the Spire

The Wilshire Grand Center is the first Los Angeles High Rise not requiered to have a flat roof for helicopter landings.

DTLA - It could be said that the middle of the new Wilshire Grand Center is somewhat common. It’s huge to be sure, but the 889 hotel rooms and 400,000 square feet of office space are similar to other offerings in Downtown Los Angeles.What really makes the 73-story project stand out — in addition to being the tallest structure west of the Mississippi and a game-changer for the Downtown skyline — is what’s on top, and what’s on the bottom.
The Wilshire Grand is the first Los Angeles high-rise that doesn’t have a flat top for helicopter landings. At the base of the structure are seismic elements that would allow the building to withstand a magnitude 7.5 earthquake from one of the 29 active fault lines within 50 miles of the building.
The Wilshire Grand has an 18-foot-thick concrete foundation. That provides some of the greatest seismic support, according to Gerard Nieblas, president of Brandow & Johnston, one of the structural engineering firms that worked on the building.
The hotel rooms and office space are built around a concrete core (some elevators, staircases and other infrastructure are inside the core). That element provides stability for the tower’s outer walls.
Additionally, what are known as buckling restrained braced frames connect the outer beams of the building in three sections along the core for the entire height of the tower. The steel support structures are meant to absorb seismic energy and will help stabilize the slender edifice against wind and earthquakes. While the top of the tower can sway up to 17 inches, it won’t buckle.
Also running from the street to the top floor are stairways. Towers of this nature would normally have a pair of stairways, said Christopher C. Martin, chairman and CEO of AC Martin, which deigned the tower and managed its construction. He added that the Wilshire Grand has a third stairway to help with high occupancy on upper floors. The team also worked to make sure that first responders would have a clear path.
“On 9/11, there were issues with people running down and firemen coming up, so we put a firemen’s elevator in the concrete core,” Martin said. “It’s surrounded by two to four feet of concrete that’s almost impenetrable.”
Another set of braces are on floors 70-73. Martin said the design team opted to work that into the architecture.
“We left them as exposed steel. We buffed them until shiny and coated them in a toned lacquer,” he said. “It’s exciting and huge and right there at the bar.”
This is also why the Wilshire Grand has the curved top, rather than the usual flat roof designed for helipads. Flat roofs had been required in Los Angeles since 1974. Modern technology and new safety standards led the city to lift the restriction. The Wilshire Grand is the first building to take advantage of the change.
The loosening of the rules gave the design team more leeway, allowing them to build a curved glass crown that rises 107 feet above the rooftop pool.

The Day on 20th June 2017 So Far

Good Day to you ALL!
Talking of a slow start of the day here we are 6 hours (in GMT) during the day and we have seen only 2 earthquakes at around 4R. One of the is in Kuril islands, the other in Italy.
As we do Italy, i would like to point out we were expecting this yesterday and it is off by 1.5 hours late.
See the Italy calendar. below.

We are entering soon a period of activity so the rest period is perhaps short.

Be Safe Be Good God Bless!

Greenland: Tsunami on 4R

Tsunami hits the shores of Greenland After a 4-Richter earthquake. So far, 4 people have been reported missing. 18-06-2017

Four people are missing after large waves flooded a remote settlement in Greenland this weekend, Greenland officials said on Sunday.
A Danish media report said the waves late on Saturday might have been caused by an earthquake creating a landslide into the sea, which in turn would have generated a swell.

Police in Greenland, which is part of Denmark with self-government over domestic affairs, had no comment on the cause.

The Greenland government said the small village of Nuugaatsiaq in the northwest was flooded, while two other places in the same region, Uummannaq and Illorsuit, were also affected.
Nuugaatsiaq was evacuated but four people were still missing, Greenland‘s police said in Sunday’s statement.
Local media also reported several casualties.
The Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) registered an earthquake with magnitude of 4 in the area, the Danish news agency Ritzau reported.

GEUS senior researcher Trine Dahl Jensen told Ritzau that it was a “good guess” that the waves were triggered by a landslide because of the quake. “You have seen that in Greenland before,” Jensen said.
Liselotte Boehm of Greenland‘s police told Danish broadcaster TV2 she could not confirm the cause. “What we know is that some big waves have caused flooding,” she said.
Denmark has sent emergency workers to support the Greenland police.

A3 and A4 Schumann Resonances

In the figure above we see the onset of A3 and A4 oscillations.

Αποτέλεσμα εικόνας για schumann resonances
The Schumann resonances occurring over an eight-hour period can be clearly seen at approximately 7.8, 14, 20, 26, 33, 39, and 45 hertz.
Earth has a strong internal magnetic field that appears to be generated by electrical currents in the liquid outer iron core that are driven by internal heat sources. The magnetic field resembles that of a bar magnet or “dipole field” with an axis tilted about 11.5 degrees from the spin axis, so, the magnetic poles are not the same as the geographic poles. Earth’s magnetic field strength was first measured by Carl Friedrich Gauss in 1835 and has been measured repeatedly since then. The field has shown a relative decay of about 10% over the last 150 years. The locations of the magnetic poles are not static; they wander as much as 55 kilometers every year.
The geomagnetic field is influenced by the sun and moon’s rotations, solar flares and probably interplanetary influences. Animals, including birds, can detect Earth’s magnetic field and use it to navigate during migration. It has been shown, for example, that cows and deer, when grazing, tend to align their bodies north-south in response to the earth’s magnetic field.
Global Coherence Research earth’s magnetic field The forces of the solar wind include charged particles that push against Earth’s magnetic field. Because of the solar wind, the portion of the geomagnetic field facing the sun is pushed in toward the earth’s surface and flattened when the portion of the field facing away from the sun, known as the magnetotail, is pulled away from Earth. (See figure below.) A visible phenomenon of the collision of charged solar particles with Earth’s magnetic field is auroras, or the northern and southern polar lights, which are commonly known as the aurora borealis and aurora australis.
Global Coherence Research Magnetotail When the solar wind meets the earth’s magnetic field it causes various types of complex oscillations in the field that often are referred to as micropulsations and field line resonances. Based on their waveforms, magnetic pulsations and field line resonances have been classified as pulsations that are continuous (Pc) and pulsations that irregular (Pi). Because their frequencies are so low, they are usually characterized by their period of oscillation rather than frequency.
There are a variety of mechanisms that produce these oscillations, such as interactions of solar wind and the earth’s main magnetic field lines; sudden solar wind pressure changes that move/push the field in or allow it to expand out; and sudden changes in solar wind direction that cause the magnetotail to stretch and snap back.
