FILE - This undated file family photo provided by the Brown Family and held by Michael Brown Sr., shows Michael Brown Sr., at right, his son, Michael Brown, top left, and a young child. Michael Brown, 18, was shot and killed in a confrontation with police in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, Mo., on Saturday, Aug. 9, 2014. Brown suffered a bullet wound to his right arm that may have occurred when he put his hands up or when his back was turned to the shooter, "but we don't know," a pathologist hired by the teen's family said Monday, Aug. 18, 2014. (AP Photo/Jeff Roberson, File) FILE - This Nov. 6, 2011 file photo shows earthquake damage in Sparks, Okla. on Sunday, Nov. 6, 2011 after two earthquakes hit the area in less than 24 hours. 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. (AP Photo/Sue Ogrocki, File) People march Monday, Aug. 18, 2014, during a protest for Michael Brown, who was killed by a police officer Aug. 9 in Ferguson, Mo. Brown's shooting has sparked more than a week of protests, riots and looting in the St. Louis suburb.
