    Which Is Best Journal For Publish My “QUAKE PREDICTION METHOD”? I’m in India.
    I completed my “research report” to explain about my “Quake prediction method”
    I created “Quake prediction” Application using “touch develop”. NASA or USGS can easily possible to develop my application for provide automatic 24*7 Live Earthquake (more than 4.0 magnitude) forecasting to the Worldwide.

    my question is,
    Tell me about “Science journal” details?
    Tell me the complete process for submission and publishing?

    I many time search at internet about “peer review journals” and all that journal need to pay money. I am student and I have money only for “pay to my internet expenses”.
    I want to know about fee free “peer review journal” Or I want to know about scientific community “who can offer my for publish my research”.

    note: I already tested my basic formulas and posted many live prediction results in my in my blog(8 months before) – http://earthstatus.blogspot.in/ (now fully developed my formulas compare to before 8 months). surely I know my formulas provide more than 80% accurate results.
    Why I can post my question in astronomy section? because my method is based on both space(1st) and planet(2nd). My method is based on planet function not just Earth and crust. (I don’t say about super moon earthquake and CME + planet distance = Earthquake)

    Are you know? I Use the word “Quake” in question, The term “Quake” is suitable for all planet.

    Who can complete astrophysics + geology, he can able to review my research.

      You should ask about this in the Earth Sciences & Geology section. This section of Yahoo Answers is called Astronomy & Space, and most of us here don’t know a lot about earthquakes. To make your questions and blog posts a little easier to read, stop using quotation marks when you’re not quoting someone. You’re better off not using them than overusing them.

      You said you’ve improved your program compared to how it was eight months ago. So post new predictions on your blog.

      You don’t have to reveal your method if you don’t want to for now. Instead you can simply provide the predictions and the results. But any geologist who would help you get published would have to know about your method. And it would also be helpful if you at least tell what data is being inputted into your program.

      I know there is a language barrier here, and the formatting on your blog makes it a little hard to determine what your predictions are and what actually happened in real life. After posting the data and results, it would be easier to understand if you write a short summary.

      One problem I noticed is that you don’t say what time you made the prediction, only “within 20 minutes”. Within 20 minutes of what time? You could also provide coordinates for your predicted locations, not just the names of countries. This would let everyone know how accurate your predictions really are.

      I’ll give you an example of paragraphs you could write. You can copy and paste from this next section if it will help you report your results. I’m basing this off of my understanding of the results you have already posted to your blog.

      “Prediction: On July 5 at 2:38:00 AM UTC I predicted an earthquake of magnitude 4.5 or greater with an epicenter within 500 km of one of these places: Venezuela, Chile, Papua New Guinea. The earthquake was predicted to occur within about 20 minutes of that time.

      “Results: An earthquake of magnitude 4.2 was recorded with an epicenter 127 km east of La Paz, Mexico at 2:57:42 AM. Although I correctly predicted the time of the earthquake the exact location was very far away from where I had predicted.”

      I see you’ve got a little survey at the end of blog posts, where people can give feedback. Right now, it says “What U think this is.” You should change that to “What’s your opinion?” and the options could look like these:
      An accurate prediction
      Needs improvement
      Completely wrong

    Is Southern California A Nice Place To Live? For a single, professional young woman?

    I live in Greensboro, North Carolina, right now and it’s hell, honestly.

    You have to drive for four hours to get to a beach… the weather is a nightmare, we have seasons… in the fall everything dies, then bitter, harsh winters, and it’s a swamp in summer. North Carolina is NOT a normal place to live. People are mostly really snobby. Charlotte and Wilmington are the LEAST bad parts of the state. There’s no opportunity here… I have a college degree and tried and tried to get a job and couldn’t. I don’t understand why people choose to come to Greensboro.

    I would like to live somewhere with sunshine, blue skies, and near a beach!

    Somewhere ethnically diverse, with friendly people who are unpretentious.

    Nice weather… no snow or winter weather or any of that crap.

    Somewhere beautiful with fun things to do, but with plenty of green spaces.

    I’m professional, college degree and will finish health care grad school soon. I used to be an English teacher abroad.
    I’ve never been married, probably the only person in NC who didn’t get married at like, 14. I do go to church, but North Carolina churches are overrun with fake social climbers. I used to be Catholic, but it wasn’t the way for me so I decided to go to a non denominational, Christian church (when I was in Mexico teaching). Socially I’m kinda liberal, for example I like gay people and don’t see anything wrong with homosexuality. (I’m straight btw)I never got married but I would have liked to have had an interracial relationship/marriage. It didn’t work out, but my point is, I’d like to live in a place where I can be free to be myself without being judged.

    What are some fun things to do for fun in California?

    • Curator says:

      I’m a born and bred Southern California girl, so I’m a bit biased, but yeah, Southern California is a great place to live. I mean, pretty much anything you’re into, there’s something to do. If you like green spaces, there are parks everywhere, or forests, or mountains. If you like the ocean, we’ve got plenty of that with the best beaches around. If you like art, we have the Getty & the Norton Simon Museum. If you like music, we have pretty much any sort of music performance you can think of. If you like science, we have Griffith Observatory or the California Science Center. Whatever culture you want to experience, you’ll find it. Whatever type of food you want to eat, you’ll find it (trust me, my husband gets cravings for the WEIRDEST ethnic food and I’ve been able to meet every single request of his). And yeah, if you like men, there’s plenty of those here too =) Especially if you’re interested in an interracial one (Most of my friends are half something, half something else). I do have to warn you that we have wildfires and earthquakes in SoCal a lot, which NC isn’t known for, so there’s that.

      Just remember that there are social-climbers everywhere. I mean, c’mon, Hollywood is THE place for people who want to climb the social ladder (though I’m assuming the social ladder is a bit different in NC). There’s people who are super-religious and super-conservative. There are people whose opinions will be very different from yours. But, what I love about Southern California is that it’s super OK to be yourself & have your own opinions because there’s bound to be other people who like you for yourself & share your opinions since there’s such a variety.
