Chile is rumbling

Chile has been experiencing several large earthquakes recently, with yesterday being the latest at 6.1 in magnitude.

Rock slides have resulted in something locations. In other areas affected by the shaking, rattled nerves are abounding..

The latest quake yesterday was 60 miles from Iquique. According to Twitter users in that area, many are without power.

But here is the interesting point: Since March 16 of this year, there have been 300 seismic events with about 28 of those having enough intensity to be felt.  On March 16 when everything began, a large quake caused the evacuation of 100,000 people .

All around the world, the events are taking place. Some places on Earth are already 2013. The Pope will have a homily about how peace could be achieved. Fireworks will fly high into the night sky.. People will embrace …

“I needed a minute. In my 20s, it all hit so fast and so big that it was a little overwhelming,” Campbell shared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. “Wonderful, obviously, and I’m very grateful for it, but it got to a level, also, where the kinds of things that I was being offered were not the things I wanted to do. I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies.”

And this week she will be jumping out of building with the Rock in theaters ..
