What they do not know is the size of the power of the quake and tsunami will occur. "We were already predicting there will be an earthquake with a strength of 8 or smaller, but not this big," he said.

He added that the Friday quake strength will make a series of aftershocks are expected to last for a while. Kitagawa said, it resembles a massive earthquake, the earthquake in Aceh, 2004, which also caused huge Indian Ocean tsunami.

Ring Neck Generate Stroke Risk

Most people are fond of and satisfied after a successful neck ring. Typical movements that may be hard to break habits. Apparently the custom is believed to reduce soreness. Unfortunately, if done too often can increase the risk of stroke.

Typical movements that produce sounds like a broken bone is actually due to the release of gas in the synovial membrane that surrounds joints. The gas is out of the membrane as a result of strong pressure at the neck or waist played with mengentak movement.

Release of these gases are not harmful, and even can help relieve stiffness and aches in the joints. Soreness can be reduced for a while, though usually will come back again when the synovial membrane begins to fill back by air.

Fitness expert from New York, Henry S. Lodge, MD said neck ring the habit is more dangerous than other parts because it can increase the risk of stroke.

"In some women, rang the neck with a typical movement reportedly can increase the risk of stroke. Presumably because this triggers an artery or blood vessel damage," said Lodge, as quoted from MSN Health.

Actions move the neck so as to produce a sound like a broken bone is never recommended by experts. If you do not want to feel the aches, the most appropriate choice is to move or make more frequent physical activity.

Even if forced to do so because it may already be a difficult habit is lost, then the motion should not be made too strong and mengentak. Repeat naturally, not be forced too rotate or bend so as to give an extra burden because it can lead to arthritis or arthritis.
