The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake hit at 11:56 a.m. in Lamjung and was considered a “shallow quake,” which can be worse than deeper tremors. It was the largest shallow quake since the 8.2 temblor off the coast of Chile on April 1, 2014. Avalanches were reported on the world’s highest peak, Mount Everest, with government officials saying that at least 30 people have been injured on the mountain so far and eight climbers believed dead.Damage in the city of Kathmandu after 7.8M quake strikes Nepal.

Wyoming: Supervolcano at Yellowstone stretches far underground;
3 giant eruptions in past 2.1M years; repeat odds now 700,000 to 1

Lurking beneath Old Faithful, scientists have long known there was a supervolcano under Yellowstone National Park with the potential to make the devastating Mount St. Helens' eruption look like child's play. They have discovered and mapped a blob-like reservoir of hot, partly molten rock reaching 12 to 28 miles beneath the surface. It is 4.5 times larger than the shallower, long-known upper crustal magma chamber. This deep reservoir, according to findings published Thursday in the journal Science, could fill the 1,000-cubic-mile Grand Canyon as much as 11.2 times over.

Hole new game: FootGolf kicks new life into struggling golf courses

Footgolf is a new sport taking U.S. by storm, with over 400 courses so far. A precision sport, footgolf combines soccer and golf. Each player needs only a soccer ball. Footgolf uses the basic model of golf with a teebox, a green, bunkers, hazards and 9 or 18 holes of play. Players kick a soccer ball into an oversized cup - like golf, the goal is to use the fewest kicks. Being compared to snowboarding in changing industry. ~ CFFG

International hero: 35 years ago today, Terry Fox began legendary run against cancer; his brother sets $1 per person goal for 35th anniversary

Terry was only 18 years old when he was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in 1977. Doctors amputated his right leg 15 centimetres above the knee. During Terry's subsequent chemotherapy treatments, he struggled with watching other young people die from cancer. "I am not a dreamer, and I am not saying that this will initiate any kind of definitive answer or cure to cancer," Terry wrote in a letter to the Canadian Cancer Society, asking them to support his run. "But, I believe in miracles. I have to." Fox ran a marathon a day, averaging 42 kilometres daily. He covered 5,373 kilometres over 143 days. Fox reached his goal for one dollar per Canadian ($24.17 million) on February 1, 1981. He died less than five months later. He inspired a nation and then the world.
