|LOS ANGELES Lucas Hernandez France Jersey , April 30 (Xinhua) -- The massive earthquake that struck Nepal on Saturday has claimed more than 5,000 lives and injured over 10,000 others so far. When reflecting on the disaster, experts said buildings of high seismic reliability could have reduced casualties.
The huge losses caused by the magnitude-7.9 quake may be contributed to the quake itself, a shallow one that occurred on a "thrust fault," Randy Baldwin, geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey told Xinhua on Monday.
Besides that Lucas Digne France Jersey , poor seismic reliability of buildings in Nepal, one of the least developed countries, could add to the tragedy, he said.
Nepal is located along a fault where the India and Eurasian plates meet. "So you have a plate boundary and India is diving beneath the Eurasian plate," Baldwin said.
"And this particular zone generates large earthquakes so that's why this quake is a large one," he explained.
It is a very seismically active area that set a history of producing large earthquakes in the past, he said.
Over the past century Laurent Koscielny France Jersey , there have been approximately five large damaging quakes along this particular fault zone, he said, adding the one that claimed over 8,000 lives in 1934 was the worst in the past 100 years.
Moreover, the shallow sediment under the capital of Kathmandu helps to amplify the motion, Peng Zhigang, associate professor of the Georgia Institute of Technology in United States Kylian Mbappe France Jersey , told Xinhua recently.
He also emphasized that the poor quake-resistance capacity of the buildings in Nepal contribute to heavy damage to life and property.
So far, more than 400,000 buildings have collapsed. At least 14 historic buildings have been destroyed or severely damaged, including 12 on the list of UNESCO World Heritages.
The massive quake has flattened at least 90 percent of public squares, Buddhist stupas and Hindu temples in the valley, the state-run Nepal TV reported.
Some villages outside Kathmandu have been completely flattened, and roads have been damaged to many remote areas Hugo Lloris France Jersey , according to local police.
Baldwin said "it's hard to" estimate the damage, as a lot of constructions throughout the region that were damaged or weakened in the main shock are susceptible to significant aftershocks, which could cause huge losses.
As for earthquake forecasting, Peng said the quake was a foregone conclusion, as Nepal's location on the boundary of Indian and Eurasian plates is well known, and the former is diving beneath the latter by four to five centimeters every year.
However, to accurately forecast the timing of the magnitude-7.9 quake or other major earthquakes is yet an impossible task for now Djibril Sidibe France Jersey , he said.
So before precise forecast comes true, to lift quake resistance capacity of constructions, strengthen science education among the public and set up a real-time warning system among other measures, he said, could help minimize casualties and property losses.
Making trips to the post office has become an inconvenience, not only for the commercial business world but also for many individuals. Long lines as well as the increasing the cost of postage, especially for volume mailings has lead to the popularity of franking machines and other types of mailing machines.
Business today processes a great deal of mail Corentin Tolisso France Jersey , both internally (in the case of large and international organisations) as well as externally, much of it being marketing pieces. However, for the average recipient of this continuous barrage of mail, distinctive mail which is of major importance can definitely get lost in the crowd. This is where individualised franking machines and other types of mailing machines can draw attention to that single piece of mail.
Originally used in the municipal arena as method of distinguishing between internal and external pieces of mail, originating point, different postage rates, as well as levels of importance or urgency Blaise Matuidi France Jersey , franking has moved to the private business sector where not only the amount of postage rendered, but incorporating their brand into this form of postal insignia matters as well. These can be a given picture, design or more recently some manner or form of barcodes that can be read by a mail-reading machine or by hand. There are also specific imprints that can be customised for a specific time, quantity, and zone designation.
Most mailing machines are government issued since the postal system is a municipal entity, but they do contract out to specific vendor’s who work with them. Franking machines are leased out to individuals and businesses on an annual basis with the leaseholder being responsible for the use and care of the equipment. Moreover, franking machines and other types of mailing machines have imprint stamps that can take on specific designs as long as they follow regular postal specifications of size and dimension Benjamin Pavard France Jersey , which includes an area where various postal amounts can be imported.
Mailing machines are now as convenient as having a small postal machine that sits in the general mailing area of the business or on the secretary’s desk, along with a postal scale to weigh nonstandard mail, taking up much less space and time than a regular mailroom. Loading the franking machine once a month with a set amount of postage allows for office mail to be imprinted with the correct postage from the start, requiring less handling, hence lower mailing cost. Another modern method is a virtual mailing machine via the Internet. Establishing a postal account, the user can import all pertinent information in a set template along with payment for the correct postage, thus making the office printer an instant franking machine
As an additional component of the virtual mailing room convenience via the Internet Antoine Griezmann France Jersey , customers can use the same virtual mailing machines with other delivery services such as FEDEX, DHL and UPS, which in.
