M4.2 Quake Rattles UK & A Review Of Europe’s Seismic Risks

 Shake rattle and roll?
Over two thirds of the reports stated that windows rattled and one third reported furniture shaking. Reports described “thought door to hotel was being kicked in, woke up alarmed”, “woke the whole household and neighbours with a bang that lasted 1-2 seconds”, “walls of house creaked, sounded like heavy object rolling over roof of the house”, “noise and the whole building just shaking the road made a weird loud noise too”, “banging of window shutters first, then rumbling noise faintly but shutter banging became louder, then four poster bed hangings were swaying and whole room seemed to be moving” and “I was lying in my bed watching something with my headphones on when I felt the bed shake”

This year, younger students were paired up with “Garden Buddies” in older grades for the Secret Salad Seeds project. Each group was designated a square in a bed to plant a seed and observe it throughout its growing process. Students maintained a garden journal where they documented their observations, measurements and characteristics to come up with predictions about what plant they believed they were growing. They were also given clues throughout the six weeks.

On Monday, the kindergarten students through sixth graders harvested their plants, separating them into their designated bins.

KS Lawmakers teach the poor a valuable lesson or do they?

Kansas trying to be more up to date in looking foolish and meaner than Indiana!

It wasn’t long ago that here in Kansas we had a problem with welfare recipients taking cruises on the tax payer dime.  The welfare checks would come out and like clockwork, our most disadvantaged would grab their iPhone 6s, dial-up Carnival Cruise Lines pushing each button with their freshly manicured nails.  That’s when our lawmakers had NO CHOICE, but to step in and say, “oh no you don’t” and put out the some of the most restrictive welfare spending language in the country.  Read more here.

Our lawmakers were looked on as heroes as they made rules to save our taxpayer dollars from being spent on luxuries in places like:

  • Fortune Tellers
  • Tattoo Parlors
  • Liquor Stores
  • Swimming Pools
