In earthquakes you never know really +Kat Tehranchik  Been monitoring this for years and it is quite active lately (but not abnormal). These regions are quite unpopulated and USGS put it as green  No #tsunami   no serious alert. :)

American Airline - Jeppesen FliteDeck iPad EFB
American Airlines grounded many planes Tuesday and Wednesday because of a glitch in the  Jeppesen FlightDeck  iPad app.
(Avionics Magazine http://goo.gl/Fm2BAf)

Electronic Flight Bags (EFBs) replaced tons of documentation carried by pilot in those 'black bags' you see them carrying around and replace around 3,000-pages and 35-pounds of manuals saving millions of dollars of fuel. EFBs run also a dozen of applications to display NORAMs, Weather, Airport moving maps, etc...

GMO Propaganda sites?
The Genetic literacy project  is a pro-GMO Science site. A quick whois (below) show that the site is in fact owned by ESG Mediametrics founded by Jon Entine (see below)
The ESG MediaMetrics site explains what the company does:
"ESG MediaMetrics, an alliance of strategic partners, to address an unfilled frustration voiced by corporations, business groups and civil society organizations." 

In short "The Genetic literacy project" is a disguised promotion site for some GMO corporation... And you thought it was a science site!

We need more mothers like Toya Graham
If all moms smacked their sons from time to time like  #ToyaGraham we would have less gangs, less young criminals and less violence. Those moronic teens will be in school studying instead of looting stores and destroying their city.
Bravo Toya Graham, you deserve a medal!

Virgin Olive Oil is Cancer Killer
Sure the skeptic tank will jump at this title, but skeptic tanks smell like ... and the link below is from serious source: Molecular & Cellular Oncology

Remember the Mediterranean "diet" is NOT a diet, it is a way of life.

(-)-Oleocanthal rapidly and selectively induces cancer cell death via lysosomal membrane permeabilization (LMP). . .

Not a miracle: People can Survive up to two weeks!
All media reporting this as if it was a miracle. It is not!  People can survive up to two weeks under a collapsed building. Longest case I have seen was 21 days. In Haiti Evans Monsignac survived 27 days. Kids, and babies are extremely resilient and can survive more than a week, without food or water, in a tiny space, if they are not wounded. They drop in a sort of coma like low metabolic hibernation and can survive a long time. Saw babies full of dirt and apparently dead literally resuscitate in seconds with no after effects.

Stopping search and rescue is often decided way too early by political morons and incompetent S&R. Going in with bulldozers in first week is another of these stupid decision. And finally spraying the rubble with chemicals too early, to prevent epidemics and cover the smell of dead bodies, will kill the few survivors still alive.
I developed a revulsion for oranges, after being in a quake where authorities decided to spray on third day, the rubble of a city with a "sterilizing" chemical with a strong orange smell. The smell of oranges is now stamped in my brain as the smell of death!
Hope they won't abandon searching.

GMO Labeling
A bunch of GMO 'supporters' and lobbyists, some disguised as Skeptics, Science writers and bloggers [!] have started a media war against GMO labeling.
If GMOs were so safe, why refuse labeling?
Despite all the claims that GMO organisms are safe (which is BS in my opinion ... We don't know) we have more and more evidence of cross field contamination from GMOs to non GMOs by pollen drift half a mile away in some cases, and transgenic contamination of soil bacteria by GMO crops [1] Toxic chemicals released by GMO corn [3] 
The final nail is the massive death of bees and insects which is now directly linked to nicotinamides and glyphosates (Roundup). A study published years ago showed that bees were dying from intestinal shutdown. They didn't know that at the time but Glyphosate has been found to attack digestive gut bacteria and this is a direct link to bees, and an indirect link to the proliferation of gut related health problems.
The Glyphosate bomb affects also poultry [6]
Monsanto is sued for false advertising on Glyphosate being safe for humans (http://goo.gl/je5F3m)

If you read all above plus links below, do you still think GMOs are 100% safe? I say absolutely not. Not on my table. 
Nicotinamides and Roundup/Glyphosates should be declared what they are "Bacteriological weapons" and banned!

Understanding the prevalence and polymorphism of antibiotic resistance genes in soil bacteria and their potential to be transferred horizontally is required to evaluate the likelihood and ecological (and possibly clinical) consequences of the transfer ...
