Assuming the #NepalEarthquake  was the largest that will come, the region can expect more than 30 aftershocks greater than magnitude 5 over the next month.
Scientists have long warned that mounting seismic stress put region near Kathmandu at risk for a severe tremor.

Yeah no kidding, a baby sea lion...or any sea lion brings out the same reaction in me as when I saw two very small children wandering my apt parking lot. "Where are your people, why are you out here, omg something is wrong."

The elimination of rubella from an entire hemisphere is a monumental achievement in public health, one that will keep thousands of infants from a lifetime of preventable challenges. Efforts to extend this protection worldwide deserve funding and logistical support.

This.
 
Could Anti-Vaxxers Bring Rubella Back? http://thebea.st/1bI4XaB
Rubella, which causes terrible birth defects in unborn infants, has finally been eradicated from the Americas. Let’s hope it’s gone for good.

Sentinel-1A gives us a clear picture of the Nepal earthquake ground displacement. Blue = uplift, yellow = subsidence.

" ... But, uh, I'm a sheep-pig ... " (Babe, 1995)
Introduction
"You are not making any sense! "
"I don't have to! I'm Italian! "
(Rock Hudson and Gina Lollobrigida in: "Come September ", 1961)
------------------------------​-------

"When I heard the learn'd astronomer
When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me,
When I was shown the charts and diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them,
When I sitting heard the astronomer where he lectured with
Much applause in the lecture room,
How soon unaccountable I became tired and sick,
Till rising and gliding out I'd wander'd off by myself,
In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time,
Look'd up in perfect silence at the stars."
(Walt Whitman)
------------------------------​----------

"That's my secret Cap, I'm always angry."
(Bruce Banner, The Avengers.)
-----------------------------------------

The second best part of science is knowing, just for a little while, something nobody else knows. The best part is sharing it with someone.
