A District of Columbia judge has decided to approve a proposed merger of one of the nation's oldest museums with two larger institutions in Washington. The ruling Monday from Judge Robert Okun allows the Corcoran to merge the museum and its college into George Washington University and the National Gallery of Art, effectively dissolving the independent art gallery and handing over its $2 billion in assets.

Man-made earthquakes, a side effect of some high-tech energy drilling, cause less shaking and in general are about 16 times weaker than natural earthquakes with the same magnitude, a new federal study found. People feeling the ground move from induced quakes _ those that are not natural, but triggered by injections of wastewater deep underground_ report significantly less shaking than those who experience more normal earthquakes of the same magnitude, according to a study by U.S. Geological Survey geophysicist Susan Hough. However within 6 miles of the fault, artificial and natural quakes feel pretty much the same, she said.
