Economic geography is even more interesting than physical geography in Venezuela today. Here are two videos, one showing an abundance of merchandise back in 2009 and another much more recent video showing mostly empty shelves.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hvx16uvSEJMhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZJdAcS3SN-4

7.8 South of Fiji, though it's depth was 600+km.
Recent devastating earthquakes in Haiti, Chile and China, as well as magnitude 7 plus earthquakes in Indonesia and California, might give the impression that earthquake activity is increasing. In fact, a quick look at earthquake statistics over the last twenty years shows that this is not the case. On average there are about fifteen earthquakes every year with a magnitude of 7 or greater. As with any quasi-random phenomena, the number of earthquakes each year varies slightly from this average, but in general, there are no dramatic variations. So far this year, there have been six magnitude 7+ earthquakes, in keeping with the annual rate.
