The earth beneath this resort town seems cursed. The ground shakes, rises and spits steam. It belches gases that kill trees. It boils creeks. There is a volcano below Mammoth Lakes. The U.S. Geological Survey calls it among the most likely in the lower 48 states to erupt in coming decades, though no eruption is imminent or even certain. Most residents aren't worried. "It's just too beautiful here to worry about the volcano," said Danielle Lane, 23, who recently moved to the resort town of 5,000.

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.
