1. There are always a lot of quakes along the San Andreas fault running across the boarder.

I've been checking the CA/NV quake map and in the last few weeks I noticed that the San Jacinto fault zone seems to be loading up, where the main San Andreas fault cuts through the San Berdino Mountains, along with many other fault zones that parallel the San Andreas fault.

http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsus/Maps/US10/27.37.-120.-110.php

I was thinking that a spike in activity on smaller parrallel fault zones indicate stress on the the major (San Andreas) fault.

There is nothing more riskier for a geoscientist than a quake perdiction. This should be intresting.

4. Thanks. Russian report and published in Europe

Kate Hutton, staff seismologist with the California Institute of Technology more or less discounted the whole story, "I donít think it's likely at all".

6. It also has articles like "Satanic Signs Everywhere!" and "Nanotechnology: Will it kill us all?"

Pakalertpress seems to be a survivalist publication geared to fanning the flames of the perpetually terrorized.

7. So true, Kabloole

That site does have its share of "off the wall" articles, doesn't it?
Thanks for directing my attention to it.....z
