Does any parents on here know any information on St. Helena Catholic School located at 5th and Godfrey in Philadelphia. Is it overall a good school? I'm researching catholic schools for my daughter, and will appreciate any input.

How are seamounts like st helena and Pearl formed?

deepak jay :
"it is , as usual , due to the movement of different tectonic plates against each other ..... Eg: Mount St. Helens is associated with the subduction of the Juan de Fuca plate under the North American plate. Regions around these mountains are usually prone to earthquakes and volcanic eruptions...."
omalinur :
"Not all St Helens are in the USA.... :-)))) I do not know which Pearl you mean. St Helena island is in relation with a hot spot, a kind of plume of hot material from the limit between core and mantle to the surface."
jim m :
"29 39N158 56E This is the location of St Helena guyot. I couldn't find Pearl on my list except for a seamount in the Cook Islands. and an atoll in the North Hawaiians. Seamounts are sunken volcanic islands amid oceanic crust. Because they are long extinct and far displaced from their magmatic epicenters, their evolution is of great interest to geophysics. To have gone from mountains above sea level to undersea mountains implies that the lithosphere is weak beneath them, or has a measurable rheology (stress-strain-time rate history) related to temperature-lithosphere thickness, distance from Mid Ocean Ridge axis, age of volcanism, spreading rate and heat flow to name some. Not all of the above may be known. However mechanical engineering models may be constructed based on a loaded beam using finite element analysis and working in the various factors."

Officer Beasley was a long time police officer in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Helena Stoeckley worked as his drug informant from 1968 until 1972. This is a statement by Officer Beasley in which he relates what Stoeckley confessed to him about her satanic cult group committing the murder of Dr. Jeffrey MacDonald's family.
