Saved by the Bell Episode - Earthquake. What was used to wrap MsBelding's baby in the elevator with Zack and Tori?
Answer . a bayside football jersey numbered 1/2 , given to mr. and mrs. belding from A.C slayter at the baby shower.
elevators are machines installed in tall buildings ,to take people to upper floors in few seconds. Answer . el·e·va·tor (?l ' ?-v?'t?r) n. . A platform or an enclosure raised and lowered in a vertical shaft to transport people or freight. . The enclosure or platform with its operating eq…uipment, motor, cables, and accessories. . A movable control surface, usually attached to the horizontal stabilizer of an aircraft, that is used to produce motion up or down. . A mechanism, often with buckets or scoops attached to a conveyor, used for hoisting materials. . A granary equipped with devices for hoisting and discharging grain. .

Answer . 1. they shake the ground ... up and down or sidewise 2. the relieve the internal pressure that builds up as the tectonic plates move. . Here effects of an earthquakes:. Tsunami . A tsunami is a series of huge waves caused by an earthquake under the sea. These waves travel at about …800 km per hour. Before a tsunami reaches the shore, it slows down. The water along the shore recedes as if there were a very low tide. When the water comes back, the height of its waves may reach up to 30 m. It can destroy houses, crops and people as it goes inland and then back to the sea.. Seiche . An underwater earthquake can also generate a big wave in an enclosed body of water like a lake or a pond. This big wave which can be about 3 m high is called a seiche. A seiche can cause immediate flooding of areas near the lake.. Faulting . Strong earthquakes can also change the earth's surface. Cracks may form on the crust. When this happens, part of the crust may be displaced horizontally or vertically. In some cases, a section of the crust is raised above the section near it. Shallow gaps may also be formed on the crudt.. Landslide . Some earthquakes affect hilly or mountainous areas. Continiuous shaking of the ground changes the psition of some rocks or dislodges them. When these rocks roll downhill, they can destroy houses on their path or kill people.. Sand Blows . When an earthquake occurs in a place where there is much ground water, water is forced out of the ground in the form of an earthquake fountain. When this happens, sand is forced out and deposited on the ground in the form of volcanolike mounds. These are called sand blows.. Fire . Earthquakes can also cause fire. This happens when electric wires are destroyed and electric posts are upturned. Fire can easily spread to residential houses and other buildings. (MORE)
Most days of the year Jews can press elevator buttons. However, on Shabbat/Shabbos (the Jewish Sabbath), Friday from sundown until Saturday after twilight; and Jewish Holidays (a list of which you can find at http://www.answers.com/topic/jewish-holiday ), Jews are forbidden from closing electric …circuits and putting on lights - as part of the 39 categories of "work" that they may not do on holy days (Exodus 31:13-17; Talmud, Shabbat 73b). (See a list of these categories on http://www.answers.com/topic/39-categories-of-activity-prohibited-on-shabbat ) Pressing elevator buttons would violate the prohibition of not doing "work" on these holy days.

Grab an emergency kit and get under a sturdy structure. Get under something like a table and grab onto a part of it, like the legs of a table. Then crouch down so your knees are on the floor and your head on your knees. The safest place indoors is under a doorway. Even if the roof collapses, the doo…rway will typically remain intact. In cities prone to earthquakes, many buildings have emergency earthquake shelters, as well. Make an emergency kit, and get under a table or doorframe. (MORE)
When the shaking stops, look around to make sure it is safe to move. Then exit the building. Check on the elderly and disabled, and children who need help. Use the telephone only for emergency calls. Look for and extinguish small fires. Fire is the most common hazard after an earthquake. Ope…n cabinet and closet doors cautiously. Check for gas leaks, look for electrical system damage, and check for sewage and water lines damage. (MORE)
A button is a fastener for clothing which is attached to one piece of fabric and pushed through a slit called a buttonhole in another and will not easily be pulled back through the slit, thus fastening the two. Buttons come in all shapes and sizes. The word can also be used for other button-shaped …objects, especially a device for making a selection by pushing. These can be mechanical, electrical or virtual in character. (MORE)
There are several things you can do in a earthquake: You could run out onto the street but you risk getting hit by something. You could hide under a strong table so that if you house falls down it won't affect you but you could risk death because someone might not find you.
When you press the button, a microswitch creates a circuit. That circuit sends a signal to the elevator controller, which is a computer that runs the elevator. Instantly, the controller powers the light inside the button, which is usually an LED. At the same time, the elevator is dispatched to your… location based on a mathematical formula. Once the elevator arrives, the LEDs in the button are turned off. Buttons vary greatly, but a generally divided into vandal resistant or plastic. Vandal resistance is typically defined as a metal button that lands on solid metal when depressed. See www.epco.us for examples of many kinds of buttons. (MORE)
Damages brought by earthquakes: 1) People are injured or killed by collasping buildings 2) Buildings and bridges are destroyed, roades are sliped ope nand dams are destroyed thus causes floodings 3)Electricity, water and gas supplies are cut off 4)At home, cooker and heater ae fall over and …causes fire, properties are destroyed 5)Gas piper break and electricty wires are torn down and causes fire 6) Landslides block roads 7) If earthquakes happen on ocean floors, it would cause tsunamis and great sea waves rush in and drown people and buildings on coastal flat land (MORE)
No. Pressing the button once will tell the control logic that a rider is waiting for the lift. It will respond by stopping the next upgoing or downgoing car on that floor. It's that simple..

earthquakes are caused by tectonic plate movement. that's a fancy way of saying the following: the earth's crust isn't whole, it consists of several pieces. those pieces are floating on molten rock (magma). and so, they're not lying still. the movement of those plates is called tectonic plate moveme…nt. sometimes, two plates collide, move away from each other, or slide right past each other. Each of those movements can cause an earthquake. (MORE)
an earthquake is when two of the earth's tectonic plaits repsition or move. when an earthquake happens there are also normally aftershocks.also some move together to form a mountain or move apart to create crakes in the earh's surface. lastly they are VERRY dangerus normally there are a hundred peop…le dead and mre missing. that is what an earthquake is.

Earthquakes usually occur around faultlines or plate boundaries because that's where plates split apart a long time ago. When two plates collide they form earthquakes.
can someone climb 30 floors to an office every day ? of course not . we can have high buildings because we have elevators
earthquakes are start when two plates start to rub next to each other and the country on top starts to move there a earthquakes all around the world .
Earthquakes tend to happen most often near or on plate boundaries. Convection currents in the earth's mantle cause hot magma to rise and travel before falling again. The tectonic plates (the earth's crust) 'float' on top of this magma. When it moves, so do they. The plates are always moving, but whe…n two plates collide, brush past each other or move away from each other, earthquakes can happen. So the plate boundaries where two or more plates meet are more likely to experience earthquakes. Google 'map of plate boundaries' and you'll see all the areas more at risk. :) (MORE)
i think that earthquakes are bad and destructive in many many ways. but no matter where you go there will be natural disasters. If you are there when an earthquake happens then I'm really sorry. There is no way you can know when an earthquake is going to happen.
What causes an earthquake? There are about 20 plates along the surface of the earth that move continuously and slowly past each other. When the plates squeeze or stretch, huge rocks form at their edges and the rocks shift with great force, causing an earthquake. Think of it this way: Imagine holdi…ng a pencil horizontally. If you were to apply a force to both ends of the pencil by pushing down on them, you would see the pencil bend. After enough force was applied, the pencil would break in the middle, releasing the stress you have put on it. The Earth's crust acts in the same way. As the plates move they put forces on themselves and each other. When the force is large enough, the crust is forced to break. When the break occurs, the stress is released as energy which moves through the Earth in the form of waves, which we feel and call an earthquake.

The earthquake can not do any thing to you but maybe knock you over. The way an earthquake could kill you is different if the e-quake were to knock a building or other structure over crushing you. It cant just kill you by itself.
What do you do in Myst when the blue button in the elevator behind the bookshelf is taking you nowhere besides the library?
you have to close the door first (clik on the lift door), then it will take you up.
Generally, you want to get yourself in a good position during the quake and be cautious after it occurs. Contrary to old advice, you do not want to stay in doorways during an earthquake. While door frames can be stronger than the rest of the house, the doors themselves can swing and injure people. I…f there's a table or desk, kneel under it with an arm wrapped around one of its legs and the other arm over your neck. If there is no table or desk available, you will have to find the tallest object in the room (bookcase, sofa, chair) and crouch next to it. In the event of the ceiling collapsing, it is likely for the ceiling to land on the taller object and bend around it, creating a small safe zone around the tall object. Being outside during an earthquake is one of the safer places. Stay away from buildings and sit while waiting for the quake to end. Due to cars having shock absorbers, most earthquakes will not be noticed by motorists. After the quake, get outside of the building if you are in one and wait until you are sure it is safe. Maybe tune in with a radio to listen to the details on the quake. If the earthquake was strong enough to make doors slam, you may want to consider turning off the gas to your house until further notified. Ruptured gas lines are the main cause of fires after earthquakes. (MORE)
Becasue they ELEVATE you to different stories in a building! i hope that helps. :P
Get a person who owns lots of buttons to give you one. If they dont give you one, attack them!

Here is the answer directly from Otis: " The Shuffle button is used only by Otis Technicians when they need to change the placement of the lower/upper deck elevators. It allows them to safely board the lower deck car top from the main lobby. A special code is required from the Elevator management sy…stem to allow shuffle operation to be activated." Keep in mind that the elevators in question are double-decked and serve two floors at once. (MORE)
You would button the top button. If you choose to only button the bottom button, it may look like your jacket does not fit properly and you are somehow "spilling out." However, it will look best if you button both of the buttons, rather than leaving the jacket partially open. If you are curvier, you… may choose to try a one-button jacket rather than a two-button jacket - this style will typically flow over your curves better and emphasize a trim waistline rather than bunching around the middle (which may be a problem with a two-button jacket).

stay inside! Large aftershocks are likely and and buildings that were still standing could collapse.
An earth quake occures when the underground plates that are near the center of the earth come together, like 2 over-lap, the friction will cause heat, and also when the 2 over-lap, they can crack, which then causes the earth quake. The size of the earth quake all depends on the size of the crack.
Earthquakes don't really have anything in them.....they are plates in the mantle of the earth that shift and that is what cause them.
Earthquakes are tremors or vibrations in the Earth's crust that arecaused by the build up or accumulation of pressure (more correctlytermed stress). More: The Earth's crust, or lithosphere (hard outer surface) is made upof "tectonic plates", or large plates. There are about 7 majorplates and many …smaller plates, around 100 km thick, which sit upona lower soft layer (the asthenosphere). The tectonic plates arealways slowly moving, but they get stuck at their edges due tofriction. When the stress on the edge overcomes the friction, thereis an earthquake that releases energy in waves that travel throughthe earth's crust and cause the shaking that we feel. This accumulation of stress causes the rocks that make up the crustto deform elastically. This is very similar to what happens whenyou squash or stretch a spring and causes a form of energy to bestored in the rocks of the crust - technically described as elasticpotential energy. When this stress gets too large, it exceeds the strength of therocks in the crust and causes a brittle failure. Brittle failuresare failures where fractures form through the material. As thesehave been happening for a long time, the earth's lithosphere isalready fractured. These fractures are known as faults and as theserepresent zones of weakness within the lithosphere, it is alongfaults where the majority of earthquake occur when they slipsuddenly. This sudden brittle failure causes all of the elastic potentialenergy to be released at one time in the form of seismic waves,just as if a spring or elastic band that was being stretchedsuddenly snapped. These seismic waves cause the tremors that people feel on thesurface and which can cause damage to buildings and otherstructures. Please see the related links for more information. The Earth's crust, or lithosphere (hard outer surface) is made upof "tectonic plates", or large plates. There are about 7 majorplates and many smaller plates, around 100 km thick, which sit upona lower soft layer (the asthenosphere). When these plates move against each other along plate boundaries(where two plates meet) or along faults (a rift), an earthquakeoccurs. This may be through a variety of movements: sideways, upand down or apart. This causes anything upon the upper surface,above the earthquake, to also shift, whether they be buildings,roads, bridges, railways, etc. What you actually feel when you feel the shaking of an earthquakeare the seismic waves. There are three types of seismic waves and they are determined bythe properties of the rock through which they travel: P-waves (compressional waves) or primary waves are the first waves:they travel the fastest and can travel through everything. Then the S-waves (shear waves) or secondary waves come: they moveslower and cannot travel through liquids. At last the Surface-waves come. They are the slowest and they causethe biggest damage. Often it is when the surface-waves come thatthe buildings collapse. An earthquake describes when the earth moves the ground under yourfeet. It can slide it from side to side or move it a few feet inone direction. It can lift it up in one place and make it sink inanother. The results of this are quite visible in and nearAnchorage, Alaska. One street in that town shows where anearthquake make the ground fell. Driving south, dead trees stick upout of a lake where the ground fell below sea level. Earthquakesare caused when faults or cracks in the earth's shell suddenly slippast each other. When they jerk, they move a lot of land with them.That makes the earth tremble. Sometimes it damages buildings. The official definition for the word earthquake is "a sudden andviolent shaking of the ground, sometimes causing great destruction,as a result of movements within the earth's crust or volcanicaction." knowing these earthquakes happen almost everywhere they domost take place in the U.S in the state of California just a (FYI) tectonic plates- move in 3 ways 1. collide w/ eachother 2.seperate from eachother 3. slide against eachother when plates are moved to the breaking point it causes an eartquake an earthquake is a seismic wave (MORE)
Grab an emergency kit and get under a sturdy structure. Cover your head with your hands.
An earthquake can affect four spheres: The lithosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere and biosphere. The lithosphere is the solid portion of the earth. The hydrosphere is the water surrounding the earth (the ocean). The atmosphere is the air. The biosphere is the ecosystem of organisms. Earthquakes aff…ect these by: Lithosphere: Shaking, ground rupture, landslides, avalanches, fires, forests destroyed, severe building damage. Hydrosphere: Tsunamis. Atmosphere: Gas emissions from ground release toxic gases into the atmosphere. Biosphere: Kills people, animals, disrupts ecosystem, destroys plantlife and crops. (MORE)
No, it doesn't. I was told that it was for people that have OCD so that they would feel better.
Well, how i would think of it is that it would wobble around so much that the weight of the elevator would snap the rope that transports it up and down, and the elevator would fall to the bottom.
depends where you are talking about. e.g. in japan, yes, it's very likely. but in england, no, it's very unlikely
A small earthquake that happens after a larger one is called an aftershock. Aftershocks happen because the crust in the area where the main earthquake happened is adjusting to the earthquake's effects.
yes but you would have to be crazy the aftershok would take you and the elavater down
Your question is unclear in the fact that you dont tell what "what" means so frankly it can't be answered.
A Earthquake is located where the two plates (a plate boundary) meet and there is to much pressure building up and that is how and where a earthquake is and how it happens.
Take cover under a table, desk, etc. . Crouch into a ball protecting your head and neck. . If the earthquake is strong, then you should try to IF POSSIBLE move outside into an area of no buildings or other possible dangers. . After the earthquake be aware of after shocks. . try to seek help if n…eeded. (MORE)

Places that are not along fault lines planes* in the earth wouldhave very few earthquakes. +++ In particular, places far from subduction zones, in which one ofthe Earth's crustal plates is being forced down below another. *A fault plane is the fracture with displacement itself. Its lineis the trace… of the fault plane's intersection with the landsurface. There are no places on Earth that experience absolutely noearthquakes. (MORE)
No. You could get trapped and the elevator could fail and crash to the bottom.
Britain is usually considered to be earthquake free, yetoccasionally, earth tremors are felt - so far nothing on the scalesuffered by other countries.
There is no place on Earth that is entirely free of Earthquakes.However, some places have only small ones (eg Western Europe).
