Babysitters in Los Angeles
Not to worry anyone, but it is true that there are almost 10,000 measurable earthquakes in Southern California every year, though “only” 15-20 are greater than a 4.0 magnitude. Angelenos know that a “seiche” (pronounced: SAYSH) is the sloshing of water in a swimming pool that is caused by earthquakes.
Follow the lead of locals when it comes to quakes. Know what you are supposed to do and where you are supposed to go in the event of a tremor, then forget about it and just go on with your business. If you are in the need of services of a babysitter in the LA area, here are a few sources for you.
Top 5 Colleges – Find Sitters
UCLA – Counting undergrads and graduate students there are almost 40,000 Bruins padding around the UCLA campus. Jack Black went to UCLA before he launched a career as a luchador in Mexico, and Mark Harmon quarterbacked the football team before he joined NCIS.
Pepperdine – If you need a sitter when you’re hanging around Malibu, check Pepperdine University. 8000 scholars manage to find time for classes, as well as beaches, at this Churches of Christ affiliated school. The Waves alumnus, Michael Schermer, was the founder of The Skeptics Society.
USC – Palmam qui meruit ferat - “Let whoever earns the palm bear it”. This is the motto for more than 50,000 Trojans at the University of Southern California. Sixteen astronauts have graduated from this top research school, including the first man to walk on the moon, Neil Armstrong.
Cal State University Northridge – CSUN is home to some 36,000 Matadors, all waving their capes throughout the San Fernando Valley. One of California’s few remaining old orange groves, dating to the 1920s, is thriving on the campus.
