Attach the string to the rod to easily change the place that the string is hooked up to the rod. The distance from the pivot level to the string is something you possibly can modify to search out where you get a secure arrangement. Distance A needs to be about three/four of distance B (so if B is 4 ft long, use an A of about three toes). You can both have the pen pointing horizontally, and the paper mounted vertically, or attach the pen so it is vertical and have it pushing very gently down on the horizontal paper.

Earthquake hypocentres are most typical within the depths of zero to 70 kilometres. Less common are earthquakes having hypocentres in great depths, of as much as 700 kilometres. These occur primarily where resulting from sluggish drift of the tectonic plates the crust of plate edges is pushed down, as is the case, for example, of the South American Andes.

To their reduction and pleasure they discovered themselves among sailors who knew the sea ways to India and past; who sailed with charts and compasses and quadrants as good as their very own, or better; whose data of the world was wider even than theirs. And yet they, in these years of 1488-1489, stood on the farthest level of European discovery.
