you might not have to worry about your taxes..lol...this one is huge about a 50 megaton bomb destruction
on (2007 LE) on the hazard list, let the orbit continue to June 2nd 2012...You might rethink future plans.Of
the 30% of space that has been observed, we have identified over 5000 asteroids, 1014 are hazards to earth, and 500 are over
a mile wide in size.
now we only have to cover the other 70% of orbits we have not even looked at.

seismic activity in Iran could affect fault zones in UAE
By Aftab Kazmi, Bureau Chief
Published: September 12, 2008,
Al Ain: The recent increase in seismic activity in Iran could have an adverse impact on the three local fault
zones in the UAE, experts said on Thursday.
The UAE has three local fault zones - near Dibba, between Bidyah and Jebel
Salhal, and Wadi Hum.
Iran has a history of major earthquakes and a major fault line, the Zagros belt, passes through
The UAE is in close geological proximity to Iran and the Makran division of Pakistan that are considered
among the biggest fault zones in the world. Most of the tremors felt in the emirates are linked to the seismic activity in
those regions, according to geologists.
Wednesday's earthquake has again opened up the debate on the seismic hazards
and safety of the civic infrastructure in the country.
The UAE has a history of
receiving shocks from earthquakes occurring in Iran and various locations in the Arabian Gulf.
The northern emirates
in the UAE have experienced several minor tremors and earthquakes since March 1999. A jolt struck the area on the morning
of March 3, 1999, and was followed by a similar tremor on the night of March 11.
According to the US National Earthquake
Information Centre in Denver, the UAE is located on the edge of the Arabian Tectonic Plate that has been pushing against the
Eurasian plate at a rate of approximately three centimetres per year. The fault line, the meeting points of both the plates,
passes through Iran.
It is a natural phenomenon, said experts, adding that countries located in the seismic zones,
tectonic plates, and major fault lines suffer more due to poor building constructions, lack of public awareness and government
plans to deal with such natural calamities.
"The earth is dynamic and its seismic activities are normal. People should
realise that they are living on places that are moving all the time and must take their precautions and safety measures. Those
who forget it do so at their own risk," a senior official of the Middle East and African Section of the US Geological Survey
told Gulf News.
Seismologists, he said, have divided the earth into different plates that are slowly colliding with
each other. Their movements create stress in the earth's crust that occasionally results in earthquakes.
He said more
than 800,000 earthquakes occur every year but the majority of them are of low intensity and people do not feel them. Major
earthquakes normally occur occasionally.
According to UAE geologists, the earthquake risks are slightly higher in the
northern and eastern parts of the emirates due to their proximity to the Iranian fault line.
These risks are associated
with infrastructure damage and their intensity may increase as these areas are located on solid rock, unlike the sandy layers
in other parts of the emirates.
The UAE has a large number of buildings and low-rise houses that were built some 20
to 30 years ago in different parts of the emirates. These building are considered more prone to quake-related damage.
new buildings in the emirates are being designed according to the latest design codes that include seismic provisions. This
applies to all buildings even if they are part of island projects, regardless of the number of storeys, said the experts.
reported on Thursday that 65 aftershocks were monitored in the UAE
