This new Java applet based version is more inquiry-based than the original version and contains tools so instructors can assess student learning. After you complete Virtual Earthquake, check out the Geology Labs home page for activities about mineral and radiocarbon age dating, river discharge, and river flooding. Virtual Earthquake will show you the recordings of an earthquake's seismic waves detected by instruments far away from the earthquake. The instrument recording the seismic waves is called a seismograph and the recording is a seismogram. The point of origin of an earthquake is called its focus and the point on the earth's surface directly above the focus is the epicenter. You are to locate the epicenter of an earthquake by making simple measurement on three seismograms that will be sent to you by the Virtual Earthquake program.

Congress approved the ERA in the early s and set a deadline for it to be enacted if 38 state legislatures voted to approve. Virginia last year became the 38th state to vote in favor and along with Illinois and Nevada went to federal court in Washington, D. The proposal faces an uphill battle in the Senate split between Democrats and Republicans, where Democrats would need a supermajority of 60 votes for passage. The issue is also in the federal courts and could be headed to the Supreme Court. The House voted , largely along party lines, to remove the deadline for states to ratify the amendment.
