The people in the Bowflex commercials sure are pretty. If you have any doubt that these models did not get their muscularly sculpted hairless physiques using a Bowflex and its patented Power Something Technology, then Google "Bowflex casting" and you'll find talent agencies looking for ultra-lean gym rats with colored contact lenses to hock this soon-to-be coat rack for three easy payments of way too much money. Allegedly, this "home gym" is a "total-body solution," as if your body were some kind of math problem in need of solving.

The Philippines raised the alert on its most active volcano to the second-highest level today and ordered the evacuation of about 20,000 people after three ash explosions signaled a possible eruption within days. Residents reported seeing the Mayon volcano belching plumes of ash and gases 2,500 feet high.

Two earth tremors shook Mt. Etna on Monday as Europe's highest and most active volcano spewed lava for the fifth successive day. The tremors, seven hours apart, were the first on Etna since eruptions started Sept. 11, blasting out chunks of rock, ash and lava. The lava flow, now nearly five miles long, has been moving down the volcano's southeast slopes since a fissure opened last Thursday.

In photo above, taken by the Galileo spacecraft Sept. 7, Jupiter's red-hot moon Io blasts huge plumes of volcanic lava. Black and red areas indicate the most recent lava flows, probably just a few years old. The active volcano Prometheus is near the center right of the image. The most geologically active body in the solar system, Io's pockmarked surface has changed dramatically since the Voyager fly-bys 17 years ago.

Fountains of lava spewed Saturday from a new crater on Mt. Etna and sent a red-hot river of lava flowing down the eastern slope of Europe's most active volcano. Scientists said the lava gushed from a 500-foot crater that opened 8,500 feet up the mountain after a series of tremors on Thursday. News reports said the river of lava was 15 yards wide and had snaked down to the 4,500-foot level, still oozing forward at about 10 yards an hour. Mt. Etna began its latest eruption on Sept. 11.

A well exploded at an unfinished geothermal power station in western Guatemala, killing at least 21 people, officials said. Another 30 people were reported missing under the debris of shanty homes that were smashed by the hail of hot stones. Officials at the National Electric Institute, a government monopoly, said hundreds of tons of rock, mud and earth spewed out when the well blew its top. The plant, near a sporadically active volcano, is designed to tap underground steam for electricity.
