Abandoned buildings photo series shows beauty in urban decayAn urban explorer has created a powerful photography series in a campaign to show the beauty of abandoned buildings and to urge us to stop tearing them down. Shelley Koon, 54, from Dover, Del., hopes to shatter the illusion that the forgotten sites are dark and drab to reveal their beauty and appeal. Visiting hospitals, asylums, schools and factories in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, she says she can easily spend eight hours at a time exploring and photographing the locations. (Caters News)

America revisits 'Pizza Bomber' mystery with new Netflix seriesNetflix has now come out with a mini-series on the robbery and returns to a question that has divided opinion for 15 years: was that man, one Brian Wells, a willing accomplice, or was he the unwitting victim of a bizarre plot? The four fast-moving episodes of “Evil Genius,” directed by Barbara Schroeder and Trey Borzillieri, look back at all the puzzles that made up this heist in Erie, a small city in the Great Lakes region. In his hand he carries pages of rambling, hand-written instructions for a sort of a scavenger hunt for keys and combinations hidden around Erie that would remove the collar.

Series of small earthquakes reminds California it is overdue for 'the big one'

Series of small earthquakes reminds California it is overdue for 'the big one'A series of small earthquakes have rocked the San Francisco area, sparking renewed fears that the San Andreas Fault is ready for a long-overdue serious seismic shift. A 4.6-magnitude earthquake hit Monterey County in California on Monday morning, with nine smaller aftershocks being triggered. The tremors were felt 90 miles away, in San Francisco.  Annemarie Baltay, a seismologist with the US Geological Survey, told SFGate that the "swarm" of earthquakes and aftershocks were typical. “It’s as if someone put an oil can into the fault and lubricated it,” she said. Mexico City was hit by a 7.1 earthquake on September 21 But any action along the San Andreas Fault, running from the Gulf of California to the region of Cape Mendocino, has long been cause for concern.  Its last major earthquake was in October 1989, in Loma Prieta – a shift which killed 64 people and left 16,000 homes damaged.  Southern California has over 300 faults, and the majority of the population live within five miles of one. It is believed the San Andreas Fault could spark an earthquake of up to 9.2 on the Richter scale. Scientists predict that a 7.8-magnitude earthquake could kill over 1,800 people and destroy or badly damage 300,000 buildings and homes. Did you feel the M4.7 NE of Gonzales, CA? Let us know here – t.co/d68QotdXXupic.twitter.com/tbxZAYPs5t— USGS (@USGS) November 13, 2017 Unlike most natural disasters, earthquakes are notoriously hard to predict. “Lots of seismologists have worked on that problem for many decades,” said Greg Beroza, a professor of geophysics at Stanford university. He told Vox: “We’re not predicting earthquakes in the short term. That requires us to know all kinds of information we don’t have.”
