    Plate Tectonics (part 1)

    Plate Tectonics (part 1)

    We exhaust our repertoire of tectonic plate jokes while introducing the following topics: the earth’s layers, what are tectonic plates, three types of plate boundaries, plate boundaries vs faults, and how earthquakes happen.
    This is a brief overview to lay the groundwork. (… pun intended!) Future episodes will dive deeper.
    INTERACTIVE LESSON
    We explain how to use the QuakeFeed app to locate plate boundaries and faults on the Quake Map.
    Download QuakeFeed from the App Store
    ASK THE SCIENCE KID
    We answer an interesting question about earthquakes in Antarctica.
    Our goal is to inspire CURIOSITY!
    We hope you and your family enjoy our lighthearted humor while learning something new about this AWESOME planet we call home.

    UPDATE: QuakeFeed v5.1.0 (with Wildfires!)

    UPDATE: QuakeFeed v5.1.0 (with Wildfires!)

    *NOT A FULL EPISODE* Just a quick announcement about QuakeFeed v5.1.0, available now in the App Store. This update adds three new features: USA Wildfires, Map Legend, and Aftershock Forecasts.
    The USA Wildfires data layer requires a QuakeFeed Premium subscription. While viewing the map, tap on a wildfire symbol to view detailed information, such as: acres burned, percent contained, how many buildings were destroyed, how many firefighters are fighting it, etc.
    The Map Legend and Aftershock Forecasts features are included in the free / ad-supported version. You will find the Map Legend button in the top right corner of the map. The USGS Aftershock Forecasts are linked in Quake Details. NOTE: The USGS only publishes aftershock forecasts for larger earthquakes. These quakes will include the words “Aftershock Forecast” in the Quake List, to let you know that it is available.
    Next month, we will add more more wildfire features to QuakeFeed Premium, such as wildfire alerts and a wildfire list view.
    We hope to get back to full podcast episodes soon. We have been coping with a family medical emergency for the past several months. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
    We hope you enjoy QuakeFeed v5.1.0. If you have any questions, concerns, or feedback, please tap the ? in the top right corner of QuakeFeed then tap Ask to send us a support email.

    A Trip Down Market Street

    A Trip Down Market Street

    Linda and Sequoya travel through time to April 14, 1906 and visit San Francisco. They ride a cable car down Market Street and see a bustling, prosperous city. Next, they travel forward four days and witness the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake. The devastating M7.9 quake and the fire that followed took 3,000 lives and destroyed 80% of the city. It also marked the dawn of modern scientific earthquake research in the United States.

EARTHQUAKE SUB fir a LONG TIME !

I’m thrilled I finally decided to Upgrade to Premium . For as serious a subject Earthquakes are to ALL of us … adding these Podcasts with some humor added in just the right places - Truly takes the “ EDGE” out of the severity of what could and has happened. Not just historical tragedies … also the more recent Quakes . Especially with the obvious in their increase Worldwide … hopefully everyone reading this Is also aware of how our Suns increased activity and with Earth Facing CME’s - truly affects and effects what happens on our Great Mother Earth. As we continue to Ride the Waves of light. ☀️🌊☀️Ashe transmutes and transforms the abuses of truly at minimum … say five hundred years ago -began to receive as mankind continued to take , take take …. Without regard to what all of these …..advances we called them
Actually did to Our Beautiful Planet Mother Earth …. We ALL need to be praying , sending healing light and unconditional love to her - with all respect to everyone’s Religion , Faith Spirituality …
Surely you can find it within your heart , soul and religious literature , it’s what we are to be doing daily and always.

Especially in these unprecedented times! We are on our way into witnessing Our Ascension into 5D is well on its way. It is NOT the end of life on Earth. It is the End of the disrespect and ignorance as a people , we’ve done. There will be Heaven on Earth. 🌟 🌎 🌟

Where we will live in harmony together as humans … respecting on another and protecting and rejuvenating our Beautiful Mother Earth and one another

I know this is “ just “ a review on an Earthquake Reporting site and now with the addition of Podcasts and much more interstices interaction- I couldn’t help but to share .

Absolutely thank you for being here for us , for all of the past years … and especially NOW
