The site includes variations in earth's rotation (Length of Day charts), magnetic readings from Fresno, tidal forces, ionization charts and solar wind bursts hitting the planet alongside current earthquake maps.
Designed to put hard to find, dispersed, real time scientific readings in front of regular people, electricquakes offers those with an interest an easy way to follow earth changes and research possible correlations with earthquakes.
November 2007 *****The Hollywood Writer's Strike Coverage*****
Recently I have begun reporting on the Hollywood writer's strike picket lines. It is the first strike I have ever reported on and I am sure for many americans around my age they have never been involved in a strike either.
It is an interesting experience I can tell you! I am going to present a real inside look at it and you will be able to walk the picket lines with me.
The strike effort involves the WGA writers and is supported by SAG and many actors icluding the casts of many Hollywood TV shows including The Unit, Desperate Housewives, Big Love, Las Vegas and many more. Television production is rapidly shutting on almost all the Tv shows although there are some movies still shooting.
I have photographed actors such as Bill Paxton, Gary Cole, Ray Ramono, Doug Savant, Minnie driver, Sara Silverman, Kathy Griffin, Eva Longoria, Robert Patrick and many more on the picket lines. Most of these actors are people I know and I have worked with because I have been on about 100 productions in the last 2 or 3 years usually as a non speaking actor (although I have gotten a few speaking parts lately).
I have interviewed some of these writers and actors and will be posting those videos here.
The first of several news stories and videos will be linked here.
The first video is a news photo essay called "The Writers Cause" can be watched for free on the internet on metacafe.com.
Please rate it highly with Metacafe and vote it up so it will gain more visibility for the writer's cause!

Renowned aviator Steve Fossett is missing after taking off from a Nevada Airstrip on Sept 3rd at 9am.
****Oct. 2007 Updated!****
I became heavily involved in locating the most high tech equipment and methods available to be used in the search. A person's life was a stake and I knew I could bring some resources and fast focus to this that would otherwise not be available to the man's family. Although unfortunately we have not yet been able to locate his aircraft, I brought some techniques and equipment to the search that had never before been used to search for a downed aircraft. The story and thanks to those experts around arounfd the country who helped me assemble the technology and the team will go here soon.
Original post from early September:
I have found an indication of a mountain top fire from a Sept 3rd 11:35 AM PST MODIS NASA satellite photo in the general search area.
NASA Modis satellites take high rez photos of all parts of earth each day and automatically identify fire signatures on the ground they fly over. I searched the sept 3rd photo for Southern California taken at 11:35 PST and noticed an automatic fire identification red square on the satellite image in the high mountains just west of Morro Lake which is just west of the search area.
The search team HAS BEEN NOTIFIED and they contacted me and are following up on this possible lead.
I hope it can help find this aviation pioneer in time. One can hope so since just yesterday a person was found alive after an unrelated car accident after having been trapped in his car for 7 days.
Look at the modis image here.(right click on it and say open in new tab or open in new window.)
The MODIS image indicating a small fire on that morning in the general area Steve Fossett went missing
It is the small red square on the mountain tops directly west of Morro Lake.
Start at San Franciso bay and go East. when you hit the snowy mountains just west of the round lake on the other side (Morro Lake) you will see a small red square the satelite system automatically places when it thinks it has found a fire.
Further analysis in Google earth of this area shows a small grey blur typical of smoke on a satellite image in a relatively cleared pine forest on a mountaintop on the way to San Fran from Morro lake so it is a conceivable ditch site.

That whole cleared mountaintop area deserves a flyover.

***The DC madam's Phone records effort***
(Temporarily offline due to increased traffic)
We are hosting a fast, partial and NOT cross checked and not completed electronic index of the phone records images recently published by Deborah Jeane Palfrey. She has become known as the "DC Madam" and she ran "Pamela Martin and Associates".
Ms. Palfrey made photos of her phone records available on her web site, www.deborahjeanepalfrey.com.
Within minutes reddit.com readers elevated a project to get together and process those record images so they could begin to determine who was on the list. I was drawn to this project because of the technical challenge, and becuase I thought it would likely would expose some truth about some of those politicians making moral pronouncements. It was just a gut feeling which proved true as a Congress member's phone number was found on the list. I became one of the primary team members and we quickly made fast progress using advanced techniques.
Our efforts at http://redditgoestodc.pbwiki.com have resulted in several partial phone lists converted to actual data. It was done with great speed and little cross checking and therefore absolutely should not be considered accurate.
This list used automatic OCR processes to look at the images and have the computer attempt to read the phone numbers. Then that list was reduced so all duplicate phone numbers were removed. It is only partially complete as the group hasn't finished scanning all the phone records in yet.
You can be assured this list has errors and wrong numbers. It should be used only as a guide for quick reference and other automated attempts to scan the numbers and THEN THAT PHONE NUMBER SHOULD BE MANUALLY RECHECKED ON THE ORIGINAL IMAGE FILES TO SEE IF THE NUMBER LISTED IN THIS LIST IS IN FACT ON HER RECORDS. It quite possibly could be a transcription error on this list.
Remember also that some of these phone numbers go back years. People who have them today may not have had those phone numbers years ago.
With the link below you can know the numbers that appeared the most!
