New eruption at Piton de la Fournaise

It seems that a new fissure eruption has begun at Piton de la Fournaise on Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean*. In fact, the report goes onto say that a small lava lake has formed at the main crater of the eruption. This marks the first eruption at Piton de la Fournaise since March 2007.

Piton de la Fournaise is a large shield volcano associated with the Reunion Island Hotspot. The volcano has frequent eruptions, mostly in the form of effusive lava flows of basalt, similar to the Hawaiian volcanoes. This could be an interesting new eruption because the initial eruptions suggest this is a flank eruption outside the caldera, but this might just be a product of a mistaken report.

*Update 9/21/08: Thanks to Anthony for noticing that Reunion Island is in the Indian Ocean, not the Pacific. Sorry about misplacing the island!

    I’m pretty sure Luke would cool his thrusters for Princess Leia if he knew they used to be wombmates.

    A trained expert inspector can only detect visible signs of bed bugs in a room. To find activity inside walls, baseboards, even under carpets, a room would have to otherwise be stripped down beyond the bare walls! A dog’s keen sense of smell can detect bed bugs even inside walls. We as a pest control company have those professionally trained dogs in our team to fight the war against these pests.

I mean, I dont tend to teach ways to run your website, however what if you added extra content which could get people’s notice? Simply as a online video or maybe a photo or maybe two to have people interested regarding what you are talking about.

  12. Wow, this was very interesting to read. Have you ever considered submitting articles to magazines?

  13. The support fact was key. As soon as the MLM potential buyers have been purchased, was there somehow aid in case of need? Most had e-mail support, a few had live cellphone support, and a few had reside real-time message support. There were webpages that offered no support, and should you had a confront together with your MLM leads, then good luck.

    Think about wherever you work. Isn’t it true that the boss (or company) is raking in the large bucks out of the cash YOU are generating for the company? Possibly you are not in sales. You still contribute one thing of rate to the company. In case you didn’t, they would not pay you! Your paycheck is a reflection of that value. Even if you work in sales, for a nonprofit, or in the service industry, somebody somewhere is earning money and you are contributing to that effort. If they weren’t generating money, the company would collapse.
