Product DescriptionFullRip

Scientists have identified Seattle, Portland, and Vancouver as the urban centers of what will be the biggest earthquake—the Really Big One—in the continental United States. A quake will happen–in fact it’s actually overdue. The Cascadia subduction zone is 750 miles long, running along the Pacific coast from Northern California up to southern British Columbia. In this fascinating book, The Seattle Times science reporter Sandi Doughton introduces readers to the scientists who are dedicated to understanding the way the earth moves and describes what patterns can be identified and how prepared (or not) people are. With a 100% chance of a mega-quake hitting the Pacific Northwest, this fascinating book reports on the scientists who are trying to understand when, where, and just how big THE BIG ONE will be.

Editorial Reviews

“More than just a dire warning about the “big one”…[Full Rip 9.0] renders the remarkable story of how geologists and other scientists have pieced together evidence of an immense Northwest “megaquake”…[Full Rip 9.0] may make you a little jittery (and cause you to re-evaluate your family’s earthquake readiness), but it is a captivating read even as it challenges long-held assumptions — including the firmness of the ground under your feet.
The Seattle Times

“Written by Seattle Times science writer Sandi Doughton, the book is a hard, fast and compelling look at the potential impact The Big One might have on us, and it documents the detective work being done by researchers who are trying to nail down the shifting tectonic structures below. It’s recommended beach reading, as long as you know your tsunami evacuation route.”
Knute Berger, Seattle magazine

“‘Full Rip 9.0’ is a worthy addition to the small shelf of books about the greatest natural hazard facing the Pacific Northwest. Doughton balances the excitement of scientific discovery with the grave risks that recent findings have revealed. Every Oregonian should learn and heed this Cascadia story.
The Oregonian

“Full Rip is a short, alarming read. …the subject carries more than enough natural interest for Seattle residents that they’ll paw through this book feverishly.”
The Stranger

“…the most readable [Pacific Northwest earthquake] telling so far.”
The Portland Mercury

Seattle Times reporter Sandi Doughton draws the reader into in-depth science—science that says it’s a matter of if, not when, a big quake will strike—with vivid stories of the scientists behind the data. …From the schools that will be shaken to the leaky tanks and Columbia Generating Station nuclear plant at Hanford that will feel the earth move, Full Rip 9.0 is terrifying in its implications, yet an entertaining summer read.”
Eugene Weekly

“Restocking my family’s emergency preparedness kit zoomed to the top of my to-do list this week, after I read ‘Full Rip 9.0.’ Seattle science reporter Sandi Doughton has written this alarming assessment of our region’s seismic activity throughout history and uses the latest scientific research to speculate on what we might expect in the future.”
The Bellingham Herald

Full Rip 9.0 by Sandi Doughton is a compelling story about historic mega earthquakes along the Pacific Coast from northern California to southern British Columbia.”
The Christian Science Monitor

“Doughton’s story focuses on the geological record and its implications for the Northwest. Does the region face an offshore mega-quake and tsunami on the scale of Japan’s 3/11/11 event that will kill thousands and devastate the economy, or a series of magnitude 8 offshore quake and tsunami events that will cumulatively be nearly as devastating?”
The SunBreak

“In this fascinating book, The Seattle Times science reporter Sandi Doughton introduces readers to the scientists who are dedicated to understanding the way the earth moves and describes what patterns can be identified and how prepared (or not) people are. With a 100% chance of a mega-quake hitting the Pacific Northwest, this fascinating book reports on the scientists who are trying to understand when, where, and just how big THE BIG ONE will be… If you live in this region, you should read this book!”

5Sandi Doughton; Paul Revere of the NW! A Most Excellent Read
By Talkdtwo
Sandi Doughton is like the Paul Revere of the NW warning us about a very real and present danger. In Full Rip 9.0 we are being given data that allows us to make informed decisions. This book is a must-read for every household in the NW.

Although I have science degrees coming out of my ears, I am usually bored silly reading non-fiction. Sandi Doughton’s book is very well written, easily readable, and scientifically sound. I can’t put it down.

I’ve followed earthquake activity for the last decade and am on the USGS site daily. We’ve been privileged to have the ears of emergency management professionals that started talking about this subject back in ’95. Still, I always believed I knew and understood just enough to be dangerous. Because of Full Rip 9.0, I feel like a person who is legally blind that has been given a pair of glasses that allows them to see clearly. I get it!

Back in ’95, we asked the professionals we talked with why the information they were telling us wasn’t public knowledge. Among other reasons, they said that they didn’t want the public to panic but that when we begin to hear about it spoken openly in the media, we’ll know that the officials are beginning to sweat. This week, the news said, “This isn’t and “if” it’s a “when”.” Still, people are not listening and have lulled themselves into a false sense of security.

The Oregon Seismic Safety Policy Advisory Commission wrote a long report that was recently reported upon in our news. The bottom line was, “Oregonians as individuals are underprepared.” Even with our limited knowledge, for the last seven years, we have worked diligently to get our church and friends to have 72 hour packs for their cars (ours are 2 week’ers), and at least a two month supply of food and water at home. Though a few have listened, most have not done so.

News articles said, “In Portland and the Willamette Valley, water and sewer would be out for a month to a year and electricity a month to three months. Most businesses would shutter after two weeks to a month because of the outage. On the coast, those utilities could be out for a year or several years, the study found.”

Several years.

Think of that. Much of the NW would be catapulted back to the early 1800’s! This is a very real threat. I will absolutely be spreading the word about this work.

5Earth-shaking tales about the quake to come
By Skip Card
Sandi Doughton’s excellent “Full Rip 9.0” offers an eye-opening description of the massive earthquake scientists agree will someday wreak havoc on coastal cities in the Pacific Northwest. But it’s far from a dry scientific warning of what’s to come. Using her superb storytelling skills, Doughton vividly describes the dramatic evolution of discoveries that led seismic experts (who once thought the Northwest was a seismic quiet zone) to realize the region sits atop a complicated powder keg of plate tectonics. “Full Rip 9.0” also offers a look at the outsized personalities of the scientists (from a wide array of fields) who pieced together this geologic puzzle. It’s a great read — although I wouldn’t make it your summer beach book, unless you already have a tsunami evacuation plan.

5Reads like a good mystery
By SandraSci
Sandi Doughton doesn’t use dry statistics to explain the discoveries since the 1980s that have revealed the devastating scale of past Pacific Northwest quakes and tsunamis. She’s written much of the book like a mystery novel.
For example, chapter five about the elusive Seattle Fault begins with hints of all Doughton will delve into: “The story of what is now called the Seattle Fault began in the 1960s with a refugee from behind the Iron Curtain and a bunch of high school students. Decades later, scientists followed a trail of clues from the Olympic Mountains to a sewage plant on Puget Sound and an eerie, underwater forest in Lake Washington. . .Then in 1985, the once-obscure fault offered a tiny taste of what’s to come. . .”
The “what’s to come” portions will make you downright jittery. (It promoted me to check my emergency supplies. Water? Check. Food? Check. Gin? Check.)
Hiking this morning along a Whidbey Island beach, I found myself taking a few moments to scout the best way to higher ground if there’d been shaking. Doughton wrote that experts say you shouldn’t wait for some kind of official tsunami evacuation warning. If you feel the earth quake, head for higher ground.
Then she includes one of many glimpses of the personalities of the people she interviewed, something that makes the book especially readable. No-nonsense hazards expert Patrick Corcoran says, “If you want to sit around and argue about it, go right ahead. I just hope you haven’t bred yet and you’re out of the gene pool.”

Rodney Rochon Bad Cop?

Rodney Rochon Bad Cop? by Monty K Reed
How can you tell except from personal experience and public records? I had the unfortunate experience to meet Rodney Rochon when I had called 911 for help because my wife had been assaulted by a horse thief that she caught in the act, stealing a horse on our private property in Snohomish county. Before that very sad day I had trust and respect for law enforcement. I had over 32 friends who were police officers and another 27 who were involved in law enforcement in direct or contractor relationships with the government. I used to believe and teach that police could be trusted and the uniform was sacred.

On that day I was sadly corrected and I learned that absolute insane, mentally retarded and intellectually challenge people were allowed to be sworn in by “Black Bart” (Sharif Bart) in Snohomish county Washington and issued firearms as well as given the sacred uniform that represented law and order without any truth behind the badge.

It was hard to believe that an American citizen, being robbed and assaulted by a trespassing horse thief could call 911 and end up standing around for more than three hours while the police try to figure out the laws.

I explained the agister lien law, showed the officer paperwork including the fillings with the county and the officer had NO ClUE what to do. He called the dog catcher requesting advice and ultimately…. You will not believe this…

Snohomish county, represented by Rodney Rochon, with the full advice of the prosecuting attorney’s office, the dog catcher and the sheriff (Black Bart) himself…

Facilitated the horse theft by arresting the property owner, me, who had called 911. Then they committed the crime of “Breaking and entering” and “Trespassing” by ordering the Fire Department’s firemen to cut the lock on the gate to the horse facility. They allowed the horse thief to drive off of the property with a stolen horse in the trailer.

Thousands of dollars in damages resulted and the clients lost trust in myself and our facility since we were unable to prevent horses from being stolen in broad daylight.

Ultimately $1.2 million was lost because of the acts of the puppet Rodney Rochon who acted without any guts, values, morals or backbone and just did what he was told like Hitlers SS. The fact is if you accept an unlawful order and carry it out you are guilty of the crime you committed.

As much as I feel sorry for a Sharif’s deputy that has NO spine, the fact is the rule of law he pretended to uphold makes it clear, that there is NO flexibility that will allow him to avoid prosecution for his horrible crime of assisting a man to escape who assaulted my wife and stole my horse.

The law known as the “Agisters Lien” allows for triple damages for an incident involving horses. Since it resulted in the loss of the horse training facility and the assets of $1.2 million… Rodney Rochon owes $3.6 million to Monty K Reed for his crimes.

What do you do when a police officer acts above the law and all of the agencies he inquired advice from all made the same mistake in advising him.??? The law is the law, when Hilters soldiers followed unlawful orders and continued to rape, murder, steal and destroy the lives of millions of people they blamed the ones issuing the orders. Anyone with two or more brain cells knows the ones who issued the unlawful orders are not ultimately responsible… The man who did the unthinkable acts is responsible.

Rodney Rochon is responsible for: Trespassing by the horse thief because he let him go.

Rodney Rochon is responsible for: Assault by the horse thief to my wife because he let him go.

Rodney Rochon is responsible for: Theft of Livestock by the horse thief because he let him go.

Rodney Rochon is responsible for: Sale of Stolen Lifestock by the horse thief because he let him go.

Rodney Rochon is responsible for: Impound and towing fees for the illegally parked truck and trailer used to steal the horse by the horse thief because he let him go.

Rodney Rochon is responsible for: Trespassing by the Fire department personal because he ordered them to cut the lock on the gate to let the horse thief go.

Rodney Rochon is guilty of: Stupidity because he could not see that the gate simple needed to be lifted at the hinge to open it. The gate was not “Locked” by legal definition because a child of 12 year s old or older could have lifted it off of the hinges and open it.

Rodney Rochon is responsible for: damage to private property by the fire department because he unlawfully ordered them to damage the lock on the gate instead of simply opening it as anyone with twelve or more brain cells could have seen.

Roney Rochon has a few options:
1. He can pay the $3.6 million now, and continue working.
2. He can pay $1.8 million now and do community service for 102,857 hours. Currently the IRS considers volunteer hours valued at $17.50 per hour so Rodney will need to start working 20 hours a week doing volunteer service for 5.8 years to pay off his dept to society.
3. He can resign and goto jail for 12 years.

BioSynthetic Muscle Motors and Calcium

BioSynthetic Muscle Motors and Calcium  by Monty K Reed. Grab a freshly fertilized quail egg, add a little shark muscle to differentiate the cell type you want and eight weeks later you will have live twitching muscles.  If you add a lattice structure made from NiTiNol you can get the muscles to live a bit longer in the dish.  By growing the muscle tissue inside of surgical tubing you can pump the life giving bio-fluids over the growing cells.  The fluid provides nutrients to the cells and the valuable oxygen.  In the fluid, dissolved calcium allows the muscles to contract and expand repeatedly.   The fluid is oxygenated using a standard air pump from a fish aquarium.  A filter removes the waste products from the fluids after leaving the muscle tissue.

By growing the muscles inside of a surgical tubing it is possible to get some work out of the muscle and keep it alive.  So far the record for extended life is over 72 hours once we put the muscles to work.  The future goal is to be able to replenish and repair the cells of muscle tissue while it is working.

For now we have to grow the muscle motors for 8 weeks, put them into service and replace them every three days.

The bio synthetic muscles motors are more powerful than man made motors and eventually will replace them in many applications.

We are growing them specifically to replace the pneumatic and hydroponic actuators for the LIFESUIT robotic exoskeleton.   One of the future research items is the grow bone tissue with the muscle so it can tap them as a source for the calcium used during the myosin and actin contraction cycles as the muscles do inside of a living organism.   For this project to work we will need another $100k to set up the biosynthetic lab.  I am very surprised we have not seen more muscle motor projects.

As we develop this technology we will continue to publish the results.  It may be that we will make a presentation for Dorkbot as an art display.  Some millionaire may see what we are trying to do and decide to give the gift of walking.
