 BSL FAQ: 1868 Earthquake
The 1868 San Francisco earthquake occured on October 21, 1868 in the San Francisco Bay Area of Central California.
Faulting: This earthquake ruptured the southern segment of the Hayward Fault, from Berkeley to Fremont.
Sadly, many of the engineering lessons learned from this earthquake and openly discussed at the time, such as the hazards of building on "made ground" reclaimed from the San Francisco Bay or the admonition to "build no more cornices," were long forgotten by the time of the 1906 quake.

The San Andreas fault let loose four times in the past 4 centuries—the massive quake of 1906 as well as smaller events in the mid-1600s, the mid-1700s, and in 1838.
The patterns found in these seismic data suggest that the probability of a magnitude 6.7-or-greater earthquake striking the Bay Area before 2032 is at least 62 percent, says Zoback.

Thus far the real science (not dogmas like of scientifically illiterate clergyman Darwin) is confirming the truth of Islam.
On the contrary new recent discoveries of last few decades in different areas of science, are a big blow to the dogma of Darwin.
This method cheapens science to bring it down to the level of religious dogma....

 Resources in Political Science
Initially the political science collection was housed with the main collection.
In 1964-65 the political science collection was separated from the History collection and merged with education, psychology, sociology, and social work to form the Education and Social Science Library.
The political science collection is especially strong in the areas of international relations and conflict resolution.

Yeast is a tiny plant-like microorganism that exists all around us - in soil, on plants and even in the air.
Of course, that tradition continues, as certain holidays are associated with particular types of bread.
While the art of breadmaking was evident from the beginning, the science of breadmaking didn’t develop until 1676, when Anton Leewenhoek developed the first microscope.

 Bubble fusion makes controversial return (March 2004) - News - PhysicsWeb
In a controversial paper published in Science in March 2002 Taleyarkhan and co-workers described how they had used high-energy neutrons to create tiny bubbles of gas in a beaker of acetone in which the hydrogen atoms had been replaced by deuterium (D).
Taleyarkhan, who was then based at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, claimed that the temperature inside the collapsing bubbles was in excess of a million degrees – high enough for two deuterium nuclei to undergo a fusion reaction (Science 295 1868).
“Unlike their Science paper, most of the background notes and supporting information seem to be correct but there are still some puzzling inconsistencies,” he told PhysicsWeb.

 ScienceDaily: World's Oldest Duck-Billed Dinosaur Discovered
Discovery of the specimen near Flower Mound in North Central Texas will require that dinosaur researchers re-think the long-held notion that duck-billed dinosaurs originated in eastern Asia more than 90 million years ago, predicted Head, whose findings are being published in the current issue of the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology.
At the time the protohadros was alive, a shallow seaway existed through the middle of North America, and North Texas was a wooded marsh, similar to present-day South Louisiana.
In 1858, a skeleton of a dinosaur from this genus was the first full dinosaur skeleton found in North America, and in 1868 it became the first ever...

Using the same cavitation apparatus, a more sophisticated data acquisition system, and a larger scintillator detector, we find no evidence for 2.5-MeV neutron emission correlated with sonoluminescence form collapsing bubbles.
