Earthquake report: It has been lit up less the last couple weeks on the map. But there is still a whole lot a shaking going on:
California - 10 total
Alaska - 5 total
Russia - 12 total
Peru - 3 total (Peru is never on the map)
Indonesia - 2 total
Guam - 2 total
Iran - 2 total
New Zealand, Portugal, Romania, Turkey, Greece, Chile, Italy, and Puerto Rico also had earthquakes.
Lots of biological hazards, Landslides, Forest/Wild fires, and of course HEATwaves. Hope the unapoop trolls are "flaming". lol

5-mile-long landslide in Alaska national park; warming eyed as possible culprit
Rock and debris from a landslide lie along five miles of what had been an ice-white glacier inside Glacier Bay National Park.
A massive landslide sent tons of rock and debris tumbling more than five miles down a glacier in Alaska, the National Park Service reported in an event that could be yet another sign of a warming world.
Located in a remote area of Glacier Bay National Park, the slide was so big it registered on earthquake monitors as a magnitude 3.4 event.
Officials noticed the monitor blip on June 11 but it wasn't until July 2 that a pilot passing over the site took photos that showed just how large it was, Glacier Bay National Park announced on its Facebook page.
"It's certainly the largest that we're aware of" inside the park, Glacier Bay ecologist Lewis Sharman told msnbc.com .
Larger landslides have happened over geologic time, Marten Geertsema, a natural hazards researcher for the Forest Service in nearby British Columbia, told msnbc.com , but it definitely was "one of the longest runout landslides on a glacier in Alaska and Canada in recent times."
Moreover, the force was enormous, Geertsema said. No one was present, but had anyone been there they probably "would be blown over by the air blast," he told the Associated Press.
Officials ruled out an earthquake as the trigger that caused part of the nearly 12,000-foot Lituya Mountain to give way, smothering the ice-white Johns Hopkins Glacier with dark rock and debris over an area a half-mile wide and 5.5 miles long.
The landslide is viewed from above the Johns Hopkins Glacier.
One possibility is that thawing permafrost, which is ground that stays frozen for two more our years, caused the slide.
"We are seeing an increase in rock slides in mountain areas throughout the world because of permafrost degradation," said Geertsema.
"I don't know whether permafrost degradation played a role here, but we can be almost certain that permafrost exists on Lituya Mountain," said Geertsema, who reviewed aerial photos of the mountain and slide area. "Certainly this type of event could happen from permafrost degradation."
Many areas of mountain permafrost have been thawing in recent decades as temperatures warm, and some experts are becoming convinced that thawing is a factor in the frequency of rock slides, Geertsema said, pointing to data by Swiss scientists studying the Alps.
The section of rock and ice that slid off Lituya Mountain is seen here. Marten Geertsema estimates it was 200 meters, or about 600 feet, wide.
"It plays an important role," Geertsema said of climate change. "I think we have been underestimating the role it might play."
Sharman, the park ecologist, echoed that sentiment, saying he's heard from experts that "they would not be surprised" to see more such landslides inside the national park if temperatures continue to warm.
"Certainly we are seeing an increase in large landslides over the past decades," Geertsema said, citing his 2006 study that found between 1973 and 2003 the average in northern British Columbia increased from 1.3 large landslides per year to 2.3.
Moreover, he said, most of the slides in northern British Columbia are happening in the warmest years.
Landslides like this one can also be triggered by other factors, Geertsema added, such as a combination of large snowpack and a cold spring that results in a delayed and then rapid melt.
The slide itself was miles from areas used by park visitors, most of whom see Glacier Bay by cruise ship.
"You can't see it from a boat or the bay. You've got to be up flying. And it's not on a typical flying route," park service spokesman John Quinley told Reuters. "It would have been pretty horrific if you'd been camped on the glacier."
And it won't reach the bay for a long time.

12 Year Old Girl Who Was Bullied Sings a Beautiful Song
Savannah was the victim of severe bullying, so she sang the song Beautiful to remind others in her situation that they are beautiful...and words can't bring them down. This is wonderful.
Don't bully, don't teach your children to bully, it is out of control for these young people. Then you got this bunch of idiots on here bringing some 8th grader to talk trash. Of course it would never do it to anyone's face. Must be what is wrong with the unabomber crew..they were bullied as little creeps and had their lunch money stolen so the sit on places like topix acting ignorant to people they don't know and most that could kick their ass if they wanted too. Bunch of losers.

Good morning, looks like a nice Saturday brewing up this morning. Went to all the local stores for a good brisket to smoke this weekend, but nooooo, not one in Corbin or London except wally world who had on packaged that was .5 thick on one end and 3" on the other, kind of the shape of a trolls brain, but that won't do for grilling. Looks like a trip to richmond is needed, Meijer usually has good meats. I like sitting out and watching the birds hit the feeders while grilling out, a laid back form of multi tasking.
Ok, so everyone have a great weekend,, trolls, not so much.
