    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    Considered an aftershock to the 7.0 quake in the area at the end of November. No damage reports so far. The scale is exponential- a 7.0 quake is 100 times stronger than a 5.0 quake (a 6.0 being ten times stronger than the 5.0 and the 7.0 being ten times stronger than the 6.0). 5.0 is a moderate quake.

    So would a 1.0 quake be roughly equivalent to Rosie O Donnell getting out of bed in the morning?

    Probably. They say a 4.0 is like a truck driving by your house. http://www.scholastic.com/browse/article.jsp?id=4892
