By Shelia M. Poole Willoughby Mariano, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution LITHONIA — The preacher from Baltimore strode to the pulpit of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church dressed in a gold tunic and promised the church would be reborn.“No matter what pit they try to throw us in, God always throws us a trampoline for us to be able to bounce back,” new Senior Pastor Jamal-Harrison Bryant promised in his inaugural sermon earlier this month. A chorus of voices responded with joy. “Amen.” “Preach.” Nearly every seat in the 10,000-seat sanctuary was full. Members marveled New Birth had not been that packed since the funeral of its visionary but controversial leader Bishop Eddie L. Long, who died of cancer in early 2017.Long dreamed big and built big, creating one of the country’s largest megachurches by preaching God would bless the faithful with financial prosperity.

One of the biggest unknowns about the next megaquake in the Pacific Northwest — aside from when it will hit — is what it will do to tall buildings. The type of shaking expected when the offshore fault called Cascadia Subduction Zone ruptures is particularly hazardous to high-rises. But it’s been 318 years since the fault where the ocean floor collides with the continent last let loose, so scientists can’t rely on past experience to predict how cities in the Pacific Northwest will be rattled. Now, results are in from the M9 project, a four-year effort to better estimate shaking in Seattle from a magnitude 9 Cascadia quake — and the news is not reassuring. Researchers found the sedimentary basin under the city can amplify the type of ground motion that’s hardest on high-rises by a factor of two to five — much more than previous estimates. In response, Seattle and Bellevue are boosting seismic standards for new buildings 240 feet or taller, or … [Read more...] about How safe are Seattle’s high-rises?

A New Zealand man has received the shock of his life after police knocked on his door to inform him he doesn’t actually own the house he purchased in 2012 — and they want to confiscate it. Nigel Rothsay only became aware of the administrative error in December, when police raided his next-door neighbor in the small town of Masterton, about 62 miles from Wellington, the capital of New Zealand, on suspicion of dealing methamphetamine, Stuff.co.nz reported. In placing a restraining order on the house under the Criminal Proceeds (Recovery) Act, they discovered that Rothsay actually owned his neighbor’s property and they owned his. “It’s crazy,” he told the website. “I still can’t believe it. My life has been on hold for months.” The mix-up seems to have occurred at some point during the property transfer when the lot numbers were mixed up, although conveyancing business First Property Legal denied wrongdoing. Rothsay said despite … [Read more...] about Man discovers he doesn’t own his own home in odd mix-up
