    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.

    Seemed to be a lot of shoplifting in 2009.

    Mod edit: The situation in Venezuela is dreadful, but not for discussion in this thread.

    Magnitude 6.6 earthquake shakes Sapporo

    Pictures on rte.ie from the 6.7 Japanese Earthquake. There are some very striking ones of landslides that were triggered. Sadly it's reported a number of homes were buried in the earthquake's aftermath. Japan has just this week had a Typhoon make landfall causing heavy flooding and wind damage with loss of life. They also had a severe heatwave this Summer.

    7.8 South of Fiji, though it's depth was 600+km.

    Is Earthquake Activity Increasing?
    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.
