Data Dump: Major Earthquakes During the Last Week

I'm putting together another post for this blog, which involved looking up how many earthquakes have been happening on Earth over the last wee. It's a fair number: a bit over 300 of magnitude 4.5 or greater around the world, plus those of magnitude 2.5 or above in the United States and surrounding areas.

That focus on America is, I think, understandable. I got my data from the USGS (United States Geological Survey). It'd be a little odd if they didn't focus a bit more closely on what was happening in the United States.

Anyway, here's that data:

Worldwide earthquakes with M4.5+ located by USGS and Contributing Agencies

(Earthquakes with M2.5+ within the United States and adjacent areas.)

What's That Doing in a Nice Catholic Blog?

From time to time, a service that I use will display links to - odd - services and retailers.

I block a few of the more obvious dubious advertisers.

For example: psychic anything, numerology, mediums, and related practices are on the no-no list for Catholics. It has to do with the Church's stand on divination. I try to block those ads.

Sometime regrettable advertisements get through, anyway.

Bottom line? What that service displays reflects the local culture's norms, - not Catholic teaching.
