Speaker: Dr. Scott Burns - NW Major Earthquake Potential with discussion of both Haiti and Chile - March 10th

Portland is earthquake country.  Three different types of earthquakes are possible in Oregon with two creating big threats for Portland.  One is movement on local faults in the Portland area like the Portland Hills Fault.  The other is the “Big One’ that could generate a magnitude of 9 along the coast and could last three minutes.  Portland would be greatly affected by both. 

Dr. Scott Burns, Professor of Geology, Portland State  University will talk about the sources of these quakes and their past history and future chances and specifically will talk about both Haiti and Chile and their relevance to Oregon. Chile is a perfect example of what could happen in Oregon with the Big One.

When:  Wednesday, March 10, 2010 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Trainings

Living Authentically, Living Simply, Living Richly

 This is a workshop designed to recenter oneself in one's work and avocations, to reconnect with one's authentic self and embrace the virtues of simplicity and sustainability. I conduct this workshop as a sole proprietor who supports mission-driven organizations and individuals that seek a more value-centered, sustainable path. The fee is a sliding scale of $25-45 based on individual's ability to pay. Thanks for your consideration.

We live in a culture where success is often defined by material wealth, power, and popularity; human connections are increasingly relegated to e-mail, texting, Facebook and Twitter; and the impact of our activities creates undue stress on the ecological fabric of the planet.
