tsunami earthquakes
2014-06-28 05:08:15

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online “Sticking points” in the Earth’s tectonic plates caused by extinct undersea volcanoes could be responsible for producing tsunami earthquakes, a discovery which could lead to improved detection of these rare seismic events. Tsunami earthquakes typically occur at relatively shallow ocean depths and are typically of lower magnitude. However, they can create extremely large tsunamis, with earthquakes measuring as little as 5.6...

Aubrac Cattle
2014-07-06 14:34:22

The Aubrac is a breed of cattle originating in France during the mid-1800s. The herd book was formed in 1893  by French monks. During the winter, the cows would give birth on the farms and when spring arrived they would go to the mountains to graze. Bulls were bred on the farms to become draft oxen. During the time, there were 300,000 Aubrac in existence, but by the end of World War II, a need for the oxen declined and milk was cheaper to produce from other breeds. This resulted in the...
