WELLINGTON, March 24 (Xinhua) -- The 7.8-magnitude quake that killed two people in New Zealand's South Island last year was so complex and unusual that it could change the way scientists think about earthquake hazards worldwide, according to a New Zealand-led study out Friday.

The Kaikoura earthquake, which shook the country in November, set records for its complexity, but was also one of the best recorded large earthquakes anywhere in the world, said the study led by scientists from the government''s Institute of Geological and Nuclear Sciences (GNS Science).

It reported on the analysis of a range of quake data including satellite radar imagery, field observations, global positioning system (GPS) data and coastal uplift data.

The authors said the quake had underlined the importance of re-evaluating how rupture scenarios were defined for seismic hazard models, which aid decision-making on things like building codes in plate boundary zones worldwide.

It showed the quake moved parts of the South Island more than 5 meters closer to the North Island in addition to being uplifted by up to 8 meters.

The earthquake ruptured at least 12 major crust faults plus another nine lesser faults.

The rupture took about two minutes to travel along more than 170 km of some well-known and some previously unknown faults.

The largest movement during the earthquake showed pieces of the Earth's crust were displaced relative to each other up by to 25 meters at a depth of about 15 km.

The maximum rupture at the surface was measured at 12 meters horizontally.

"This complex earthquake defies many conventional assumptions about the degree to which earthquake ruptures are controlled by individual faults, and provides additional motivation to rethink these issues in seismic hazard models," the authors said.

The quake had underlined that conventional seismic hazard models were too simple and restrictive, lead author Ian Hamling, of GNS Science, said in a statement.

"The message from Kaikoura is that earthquake science should be more open to a wider range of possibilities when rupture propagation models are being developed," said Hamling.

ACCRA, Sept. 13 (Xinhua) -- Ghana's Sports Minister Nii Lantey Vanderpuye has hinted that his outfit will officially petition the International Boxing Federation (IBF) to protest the outcome of the fight between Ghana' s Richard Commey and Robert Easter Jr. of the United States.

Commey lost his first professional fight after Easter defeated him on the night of September 9 in the United States to clinch the IBF Lightweight crown in a split decision.

Easter Jr. won 114-113, 115-112 and Commey 114-113 on the cards via a 2-1 decision but Commey has insisted he was robbed.

Vanderpuye told the media on Monday at a ceremony to welcome Commey home that the 29-year-old Ghanaian boxer deserved to have won the bout, hinting at filing a protest.

"I will personally be interested in the petition that we will send to the IBF protesting against this verdict. I have a chance of talking to [someone] who's been in boxing for long and we have advised ourselves on the next line of action. We will formally as a country protest," Vanderpuye said.

Meanwhile, a popular Ghanaian boxing promoter, Atta Eddie Pappoe, believes the judges' scores were fair.

CANBERRA Nike Hyperadapt Comprar , June 17 (Xinhua) -- Australians retain warmer feelings to other English-speaking nations than to their neighbors in Asia, according to a new poll.

But Britain rated only third, behind the United States and New Zealand Nike Hyperadapt Baratas , in the Lowy Institute poll, the results of which were released on Tuesday.

The poll by the Sydney-based institute asked respondents to nominate Australia's 'best friend' from a list of six countries.

About a third, or 35 percent Nike Hyperadapt España Baratas , nominated the United States, and about another third, or 32 percent Nike Hyperadapt España , New Zealand.

These two and Britain ranked well above China, Indonesia and Japan, with only 11 percent choosing any of these nations as Australia's 'bestie.'

The poll was conducted in the lead-up to the Australia-UK Asia Dialogue Hombre Nike Hyperdunk X Negras Blancas España , which the institute is jointly convening, to assess Australians' attitudes towards Britain.

It found more than eight in 10 Australians see the relationship with Britain as important, with 28 percent saying it is "very important."

Australians' warmth towards Britain has been a consistent feature of Lowy Institute polling Hombre Nike React Hyperdunk Flyknit Pale Grises Plata España , with Britain scoring a warm 77 degrees on its 'thermometer' of feelings towards other countries of the world in 2013.

This warmth was based mainly on a shared history, with two- thirds citing "strong historical and cultural ties between the two countries."

Only 26 percent said it was because Britain was still a major economic and strategic power, while long-standing sporting rivalries between the two countries was seen by only 5 percent of Australians as the reason for the relationship between Britain and Australia being important.

Lowy Institute executive director Dr Michael Fullilove said it was an opportune time for Australia and Britain to focus on their relationship and shared interests in Asia and beyond.

"Our aim is strengthen our countries' efforts to engage with the region that is becoming the world's economic and strategic center of gravity Hombre Nike Odyssey React Negras Blancas España ," he said.

Sir John Holmes, director of fellow dialogue convenor, the Britain-based Ditchley Foundation Mujer Nike Epic React Flyknit Grises Blancas España , said: "Both countries have plenty of expertise, but we come at the issues from different geographic angles. We aim to bring these complementary views together much more systematically."

This new annual Asia Dialogue was announced by the Australian foreign minister and the British foreign secretary at the Australia-UK ministerial (AUKMIN) meeting in March.

The first round is being held at Ditchley Park in Oxfordsh.
