Did you know that there are three methods designed to increase security and trust, which are all visible on member profiles for potential hosts and surfers?

  1. Personal references, which hosts and surfers have the option to leave after having used the service.[2]
  2. An optional credit card verification system, allowing members to "lock in" their name and address by making a credit card payment and entering a code that CouchSurfing mails to an address of their choice. This also allows CouchSurfing to recoup some costs by requiring a fee for verification. For fairness, the verification fee is based on a sliding scale, taking into account the Purchasing Power Parity and Human Development Index of the country of residence.
  3. A personal vouching system, whereby a member that had been vouched for three times — originally starting with the founders of the site — might in turn vouch for any number of other members he knew or had met through CouchSurfing, and trusts.

Did you know that a seismograph is used to measure an earthquake?

 Did you know that when two blocks of the earth suddenly slip past one another it creates what is know as a earthquake?

Did you know that the surface where they slip occurs is called the fault or fault plane?

Did you know that the location below the earth’s surface where the earthquake starts is called the hypocenter, and the location directly above it on the surface of the earth is called the epicenter?

Did you know that foreshocks are smaller earthquakes that happen in the same place as the larger earthquake?

Did you know that the largest, main earthquake is called the mainshock?

Did you know that aftershocks are smaller earthquakes that occur afterwards in the same place as the mainshock?

Did you know that the earth has four major layers: the inner core, outer core, mantle and crust?


covering the surface of the earth?

Not only that, but these puzzle pieces keep slowly moving around, sliding past one another and bumping into  each other. We call   these puzzle pieces tectonic plates, and the edges of the plates are called the plate boundaries. The plate boundaries are made up of many faults, and most of the earthquakes around the world occur on these faults. Since the edges of the plates are rough, they get stuck while the rest of the plate keeps moving. Finally, when the plate has moved far enough, the edges unstick on one of the faults and there is an earthquake.

P & S waves 



While the edges of faults are stuck together, and the rest of the block is moving, the energy that would normally cause the blocks to slide past one another is being stored up. When the force of the moving blocks finally overcomes the friction of the jagged edges of the fault and it unsticks, all that stored up energy is released. The energy radiates outward from the fault in all directions in the form of seismic waves like ripples on a pond. The seismic waves shake the earth as they move through it, and when the waves reach the earth’s surface, they shake the ground and anything on it, like our houses and us!


Did you know that size of an earthquake depends on the size of the fault and the amount of slip on the fault?

seismogram Did you know that a seismograph is used to measure an earthquake? 

Did you know that the seismogram recordings made on the seismographs at the surface of the earth to determine how large the earthquake was?

Did you know that a short wiggly line that doesn’t wiggle very much means a small earthquake, and a long wiggly line that wiggles a lot means a large earthquake?

Did you know that the length of the wiggle depends on the size of the fault, and the size of the wiggle depends on the amount of slip?

Did you know that the size of the earthquake is called its magnitude? 

Did you know that there is one magnitude for each earthquake?

Did you know that scientists use a method called triangulation to determine exactly where the earthquake was?

Did you know that scientists have tried many different ways of predicting earthquakes, but none have been successful?

Did you know that the seismograph has a base that sets firmly in the ground, and a heavy weight that hangs free?

Did you know that Earthquakes are recorded by instruments called seismographs?

Did you know that the recording a earthquake  make is called a seismogram?

Did you know that when an earthquake causes the ground to shake, the base of the seismograph shakes too, but the hanging weight does not?
Did you know that the spring or string that it is hanging absorbs all the movement?
Did you know that the difference in position between the shaking part of the seismograph and the motionless part is what is recorded?

Did you know who are the top ten best boxers of the decade?

Did you know who are the top ten best boxers of the decade?

1.  Manny Pacquiao



From his breakout performance against Lehlohonolo Ledwaba in 2001 to his career-best knockout win over Miguel Cotto, Manny Pacquiao improved every time he stepped in the ring. During the decade, he captured titles in seven divisions, four of them linear divisional titles. He defeated three of the names on this list and next has a shot at a fourth when he takes on Floyd Mayweather Jr. in a fight that is estimated to set earnings records.  Pacquiao has a 52 wins, 38 by knockout, 2 loses and 2 draws record.


2. Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Undefeated in 13 years as a professional, Floyd Mayweather Jr. has proven himself the most complete fighter in the world over the last quarter century. A five-division champion with wins over Juan Manuel Marquez, Ricky Hatton, Zab Judah, Jose Luis Castillo and Diego Corrales, Mayweather now aims to cement himself as one of the greatest fighters of all time with a win over Manny Pacquiao.


3. Bernard Hopkins
If  longevity is the mark of a champion, then Bernard Hopkins is Undisputed. Soon to be 44 years old early in 2010, he got his big break by knocking out an undefeated Felix Trinidad in 2001. Hopkins proceeded to record 20 defenses of the middleweight title before his streak was ended with two razor-thin losses to Jermain Taylor. Hopkins then beat linear light heavyweight champion Antonio Tarver before losing his second divisional title to Joe Calzaghe.



4. Marco Antonio Barrera
Entering the year 2000, Marco Antonio Barrera was considered past his best. But after taking an undefeated Erik Morales to the limit, altering his style from brawler to technician and outclassing an undefeated Prince Naseem Hamed, he never looked better. Barrera went on to win a classic trilogy against Morales.


5. Juan Manuel Marquez
Incorporating more brawling into his scientific approach to boxing, Marquez won the hearts of the Mexican people by nearly getting the best of Manny Pacquiao on two occasions and coming out on top in wars with Marco Antonio Barrera, Joel Casamayor and Juan Diaz.




6. Miguel Cotto

Unlike the other names on this list, Miguel Cotto’s entire career has taken place in the 2000s. And with only two losses, one against a man much higher up on this list, his career has been a steady one highlighted by hard-fought wins against Zab Judah, Shane Mosley and Joshua Clottey.










7. Joe Calzaghe

One of only two undefeated fighters on the list, Joe Calzaghe ended his career in 2008 after racking up 21 successful defenses of the super middleweight title. He beat Bernard Hopkins for the light heavyweight crown but a lack of formidable opponents at 168 pounds and a failure to land fights with top light heavyweights like Roy Jones Jr. – who was far past his best when Calzaghe fought him – keep Joe from a higher rating, but his talent is not questioned.




8. Winky Wright


Winky Wright had a hard time breaking out of anonymity in the 90s but he kept at his craft and carved out his own niche at junior middleweight while awaiting his opportunity. When the time arrived, he came up big with wins over Shane Mosley and Felix Trinidad before dropping decisions to a bigger Bernard Hopkins and the awkward, high volume puncher Paul Williams.






9. Shane Mosley

Coming into the new millennium, Shane Mosley was recognized as the best lightweight in the world. He got his first taste of the big time in 2000 with a win over Oscar De La Hoya and never looked back. Never one to back away from a fight, Mosley has taken on the best the sport has to offer.




10. Wladimir Klitschko

In the wake of Lennox Lewis’ retirement, Wladimir suffered major setbacks but still emerged from one of the more drab eras in heavyweight history as the most skilled and consistent heavyweight in the world. Klitschko seized two of the belts from the fractured heavyweight crown – the closest anyone has come to unifying and giving boxing its first undisputed heavyweight king since Lewis.
