The United States government and law enforcement are constantly doing studies and mapping trends of people crossing our borders to migrate to the United States to be able to make a better life for themselves and their families, by the alarming rates of people applying for green cards and citizenships.

Plate Tectonics Press Release

...| Plate Tectonics Press Release! | | Week3 Assignment Living in Southern California and near a major earthquake fault I have pondered and wondered why our plants shake and why our planet only shakes in specific elements of the United States. While exploring for the details to finish my report, I was also able to find out the solutions to my own individual queries. This report will reply these inquiries: How does our planet shift and when, what actives cause the Earth to shake, how are earthquakes calculated and what are the two kinds of body waves and earthquake generates. Reasons for Earthquakes; an earthquake is triggered if there’s an unpredicted and unexpected release of power inside the Earth’s crust, producing seismic waves. A burst in geological faults under the Earth’s surface may also trigger earthquakes. But, earthquakes may also be because of volcanic action, nuclear tests as well as landsides. A natural earthquake will occur inside the Plant’s surface where there is sufficient stored energy and hear that will trigger plates in order to relocate. So why does our planet move when these move, Our planets move since whenever the two plates or faults move they generally get tangled together when they move. The accumulated energy which moves the plates becomes saved and whenever the energy is ultimately released it triggers the planet earth in order to shake. Earthquakes are calculated with a seismometer which is also known as a seismograph. A......
