A few days ago on Melbourne's 60 Minutes, renowned scientist Dr Kerry Sieh predicted that an earthquake andrepparttar 110080 ensuing next big wave or giant Tsunami will definitely happen, and it will berepparttar 110081 Grandaddy of them all
Indonesia getsrepparttar 110082 full force this time around ...
When?... whether it be in a few months, or in a decade is what he cannot accurately predict at this present moment.
Dr Sieh, a Geology professor atrepparttar 110083 California Institute of Technology, knows Indonesia's earthquake zone likerepparttar 110084 back of his hand ...
..and he did in fact predictrepparttar 110085 first earthquake that hit parts of Indonesia on Boxing Day. Now he predicts another Tsunami will hit, and this will berepparttar 110086 grandaddy of them all!
From Melbourne MSN Channel 9's Sixty Minutes Richard Carleton explains whyrepparttar 110087 earthquakes and ensuing Tsunami's occur:
RICHARD CARLETON: Dr Sieh's focus is onrepparttar 110088 faultline, 5000km long, where moving plates ofrepparttar 110089 earth's crust grind against each other. The plate underrepparttar 110090 Indian Ocean slides beneath Indonesia, much likerepparttar 110091 disappearing stairs on an escalator. But some sections get stuck and then later snap upwards, releasing gargantuan force.
DR KERRY SIEH: The plates get hung up and they can't slip past each other, sorepparttar 110092 upper plate gets dragged down as this plate sinks and with it,repparttar 110093 islands get dragged down, slowly but surely, and whenrepparttar 110094 earthquake happens, they pop back up and out.
RICHARD CARLETON: And that's what happened last Boxing Day. The quake joltedrepparttar 110095 mainland so violently that people were thrown torepparttar 110096 ground.
What a pointless waste of life! ... Dr Sieh warnedrepparttar 110097 governments concerned ahead of time .. he personally went down and alerted inhabitants ofrepparttar 110098 affected villages in Indonesia to protect themselves againstrepparttar 110099 Tsunami he just knew would happen
... but nobody paid any attention to him ... now when he walks into these same villages, he is welcomed and treated as a hero !
From his 14 satellite research station, high inrepparttar 110100 mountain tops ofrepparttar 110101 humid Indonesian jungle, Dr Sieh now predictsrepparttar 110102 next Tsunami will hit:


Will Soy Candles be the Leader to Light the Future?

Written by Brian F Connors


Ahhhh,repparttar scent and sight of a burning paraffin wax candle andrepparttar 110076 appealing ambiance that it floats throughout a room! One may think that this scenario is innocence in its purest sense. There is, after all, that cozy feeling which makes one give thought to everything thatís good in this world. That is until you takerepparttar 110077 time to get acquainted withrepparttar 110078 darker side ofrepparttar 110079 world of paraffin wax candles.

Did you know that paraffin is a petroleum by-product which means that paraffin wax may be a risk torepparttar 110080 well-being of your health? How is that, you ask? Well after petroleum is processed into gasoline, kerosene, motor oil, diesel and other fuels,repparttar 110081 excess waste is then used inrepparttar 110082 production of paraffin which contains harmful toxins and carcinogens. Hmmmm.

The black soot buildup on your walls, ventilating system, furniture and so forth after burning paraffin wax candles is similar in composition to diesel soot. This dirty matter makes a deposit of unwanted and dangerous pollutants into our homes that endangersrepparttar 110083 health and welfare of family, pets, and ourselves when breathed into our collective lungs. Studies have shown that cancer-causing agents released by paraffin wax candles are just as toxic as second hand cigarette smoke and can cause damage torepparttar 110084 heart, lungs, circulatory system and nervous system. This is not a good thing.

Why then have scented candle sales increased to over 2 billion dollars annually overrepparttar 110085 last decade according torepparttar 110086 National Candle Association? Iím not sure but Iíd hazard a guess thatrepparttar 110087 mesmerizing glow and soothing fragrances are part of why seven out of every ten households burn candles regularly.

Hereís a question, though, that Iíd like to pose to anyone that subscribes torepparttar 110088 rules of common sense. Itísrepparttar 110089 one that your parents or teachers of yesteryear asked whenrepparttar 110090 majority was acting in an intellectually challenged way. Iíll paraphrase it here : ďIf everyone was jumping off a cliff, would you dorepparttar 110091 same thing?Ē The same thing holds for paraffin wax candles but what alternatives are there to break this dangerous habit?
