Fixed the title. Thanks. Good thing this one was out at sea rather than on land. No tsunami warnings either, so all appears to be ok.

It apparently got the attention of a lot of people in Davao. 


Dabawenyos evacuate due to 7.2 earthquake
EMPLOYEES and students from different establishments in Davao City quickly evacuated offices and buildings following the magnitude 7.2 earthquake Tuesday, January 10, in Sulu.
A Facebook post from Sittie Hapsa Datu-Ali Maganaka of Davao City showed employees of a BPO firm milling outside of the building after they were told to evacuate.
"We will call u back later, my apologies we need to log out. It's earthquaking in our area," her Facebook post reads.
An Intensity IV quake shook Davao City as well as Malita and Davao Occidental that led many establishments to cancel regular operations and schools suspending their classes.
At 2:13 p.m. Tuesday, a magnitude 7.2 quake rocked Tongkil, Sulu with epicenter at 223 kilometers southeast of the municipality and a depth of 625 kilometeres, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) said.
At the Ateneo de Davao University (Addu), students, faculty and employees gathered at the open ground of the university to secure themselves against the possible impact of the quake.
It suspended classes for sometime before it resumed normal classes.
Philvolcs director Renato Solidum advised the public that there was no reason for the public to get worried since there were no recorded damages and no tsunami warning was issued.
The quake was tectonic in origin.
Department of Labor and Employment-Davao information officer Kriztja Marae Labrador said, an alarm was set off to signal employees to immediately evacuate the building.
"We used what we learned from the national simultaneous drill," Labrador said. She said their knowledge during regular drills helped them on how to react during the quake.
After it was cleared, the people were then instructed to return to the building as they no longer saw any sign of danger.
Phivolcs said an Intensity III tremor was felt in Iloilo City, Kiamba, South Cotabato, Caraga and Boston, Davao Oriental.
An Intensity II also rattled the areas of Mati, Davao Oriental, General Santos City, Cagayan De Oro City, Lake Sebu, Polomolok, Tambakan and Tupi, South Cotabato.

      Citizens of 40 countries traveling to Vietnam now have a simplified process for obtaining travel visas directly from the Vietnam government. Vietnam recently introduced an e-Visa (electronic visa) application system for citizens of 40 countries. Vietnam e-Visas will allow citizens of these 40 countries to visit Vietnam for up to 30 days. The 40 countries included in the Vietnam e-Visa program are Armenia, Argentina, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Brunei, Bulgaria, Chile, China, Columbia, Czech Republic, Cuba, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Kazakhstan, Luxembourg, Mongolia, Myanmar, Norway, Panama, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Timor Leste, United Kingdom, United States, Uruguay and Venezuela. This new two-year, e-Visa pilot program will be in addition to the current Vietnam travel visa processes in place. Holders of the new Vietnam e-Visas will be allowed to arrive into Vietnam through any of the eight international airports including Noi Bai - Hanoi City, Tan Son Nhat - Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang - Da Nang City, Cam Ranh - Nha Trang City, Cat Bi - Hai Phong City, Can Tho - Can Tho City, Lien Khuong – Da Lat City and Phu Quoc - Phu Quoc Island or through any of the 13 international land border crossings. Vietnam e-Visas will cost you a flat fee of $25 USD for a 30-day, SINGLE-ENTRY visa. Your 30 days will start when you arrive into Vietnam, not when your e-Visa is approved. This visa will only be valid for a single entry into Vietnam for up to 30 days, meaning you can’t fly into Vietnam, stay for a few days, travel to Cambodia and then return to Vietnam for your flight back to your country. You can only enter Vietnam once. If you need a multiple-entry visa or want to stay in Vietnam for longer than 30 days, you can apply at www.visavietnam.ph . It is fast, cheap, easy and reliable. Vietnam e-Visa application process You will need a scanned copy of your valid passport details page and a scanned passport photo. According to the website instructions, the passport photo must be “straight looking and without glasses.” I’m assuming this means looking forward at the camera and without a smile (and nothing to do with your sexual orientation). You can apply online for a Vietnam e-Visa through this website: https://evisa.xuatnhapcanh.gov.vn/web/guest/trang-chu-ttdt. Please follow the steps below: 1.    Click on “For Foreigners.” 2.    Upload your passport photo and a copy of your passport details page. These are two separate uploads. You can’t upload your passport details page twice. 3.    Enter in all the required information. 4.    Pay your $25 USD fee and submit your application. Your fee is non-refundable even if your application is later denied. 5.    Once you have submitted your application, you will receive a “registration code.” Keep this code. 6.    At the time of this posting, the e-Visa turnaround time is approximately 3 business days. After the processing time, return back to the website and click on “Search” in the top menu bar. 7.    Enter in your registration code to search for your application to see if it was approved. 8.    If approved, you can print out your Vietnam e-Visa as proof for travel. I know this sounds a little complicated but trust me, this Vietnam e-Visa process is much simpler than the uncertainty and hoops we used to jump through. We no longer have to deal with third-party companies for visa approval letters or mail in our passports to the Vietnam consulate offices. Overall, this is a win-win for citizens of 40 countries. Travelers and it’s a step in the right direction. I’m hoping that multiple-entry visas and longer term visas will be added to this system if it proves to be successful. Disclaimer: Please understand this is a pilot program so there might be some glitches along the way. I have not personally applied for a Vietnam e-Visa through this process so I can’t test out how reliable it is. If any of our readers has any feedback or real life experiences with obtaining a Vietnam e-Visa, please share them with us in the comments section below. Thanks for reading! PhilipJ

      Took a trip down to Ho Tong Hardware to search for the NPT tap and dies that I needed. Turned out that they didn't have any in stock, but I'm not sure that the surly lady that helped me actually understood what I was looking for. A very different experience from Belmont Industrial!
