The sun cannot go supernova - it doesn't have sufficient mass.

It will eventually become a red giant and then a white dwarf.

Scientist makes dire earthquake prediction - Los Angeles Times
I recall a documentary in which they interviewed the woman who lives at the top of the cliff where the San Andreaus Fault meets the Ocean. The Interviewer asked if she realized where she lived and all she could say was "But the view"

People keep saying that all these large quakes are normal but I never remember hearing about this many until this year and it seems it's taking turns around the Pacific Ring Of Fire. It will eventually get here...

Which is why you should look to the actual numbers - what you have heard about changes with ever-increasing media, your habits, what the media decides to report, and other variables that have nothing to do with seismology.

There have been 17 7.0+ earthquakes this year, equaling last year's total. In 2008 there were only 12, in 2007 there were 18 (but 4 were massive 8.0+ quakes, and there have only been 2 such massive quakes in the three years since). Since 1990, the annual number of 7.0+ earthquakes have fluctuated between 11 and 20.

Given the relative infrequency of such events - a bit more than one occurs each month - a 20-year annual variation (1990 thru 2009) between 11 and 20 isn't beyond what might be expected and the 17 so far in 2009, while certainly slightly above the annual mean, isn't beyond expected periodic deviations from the mean.

It isn't a city, it's an area. CV.
