Volcanic Activity

El Hierro Volcano : Green and Yellow alert – 50 earthquakes since midnight UTC

By

Earthquake Report

Update 28/06 – 07:55 UTC
– At least the people of El Hierro must have had a good night sleep as the strength of the earthquakes decreased seriously the last 7 hours. But … only the strong earthquakes were more or less silent at night.
– So far today IGN has listed 39 earthquakes since midnight,  a little less than the preceding days, but still a high number.
Harmonic Tremor has restarted strongly since 05:35 this morning, showing us that the volcanic process is still continuing strongly. As we have experienced the last couple of days, the current HT may refer to a new migration of the epicenters
– The strongest earthquake since midnight was a M2.8 earthquake. NO earthquakes since midnight have been marked as felt by the people. At ER we think that Felt or no felt indications are far from reality as most people do not indicate slight tremors anymore after having experienced stronger ones. Aftershocks in general are less documented. Only nations like Japan, USA and New Zealand are drilled to report whatever they have felt.
– The depth did not show a lot of difference since midnight with values in between 17.6 and 22.9 km
– The epicenter of the earthquakes since midnight remains the El Julan – La Dehesa area of the island
– We certainly expect more earthquakes to come today as the process continues in full strength.
What can change the process fundamentally ? Our readers should watch the following elements in the current process with more focus than the rest : Depth of the earthquakes (changes towards a depth of 15 km or less can be triggers of new events, sudden change in the strength of the earthquakes,  the locations of the epicenters (these locations are important in relation to the conduits of the recent eruption)

Locations of the epicenters of the last 10 earthquakes – map courtesy Avcan

Earthquakes and HT so far today


Update 27/06 – 23:55 UTC
– Another very active day with a lot of earthquakes which have been felt by the people. The strongest so far this year was a M4 at 18:55 UTC.
– Earthquake epicenters have also gradually moved today from below the island towards the shallow waters of the Las Calmas sea. The movement has stopped in the late afternoon and continued at midnight in the same area  (see picture below).
– At midnight IGN had listed 191 earthquakes. 10 earthquakes had a Magnitude of 3 or more
– The depth of the earthquake remains at 18 to 21 km (no change compared to yesterday)

This image shows the location of the epicenter of the 10 latest earthquakes before 17:05 (left) and 23:05 (right) – Location is almost similar – image courtesy Avcan

CHIE seismogram showing a lot of activity today

Update 27/06 – 19:45 UTC
The earthquakes epicenters are currently located at the same area where it all started on September 27, 2011.  The depth at that time was approx. 15 to 17 km. The current depth is more in the 19 to 21 km range . The difference in between the 2 layers is a couple of kms. (All our readers can come to the same conclusion in comparing the location and the depth of the 10 days of earthquakes who started on September 27 and todays location of the quakes). All this is not conclusive in what will happen next.

Update 27/06 – 19:01 UTC
Joke has just SMS’t (texted) that she has felt a strong shock in El Pinar.
The earthquake Joke has just reported was a M4.0, the strongest earthquake since last year.
As you will be seeing on the map, the epicenter is located below the Las Calmas sea floor.
18:55:08    27.6883    -18.1006    Depth 20 km    Sentido     M 4.0    mbLg     W EL PINAR

Millions of people will endure a brutal heat wave with temperatures soaring above the century mark, and poor air quality will add to their woes.

Portions of the Plains have been gripped by 100-degree heat for days with a large area of high pressure promoting sizzling sunshine. That same high has been promoting calm conditions and stagnant air, trapping dust, ozone and smoke.

The worst air quality conditions are in place around the Houston area, where the Air Quality Index (AQI) is considered unhealthy. The National Weather Service issued an air quality alert for surrounding areas of Houston, warning: “ACTIVE CHILDREN AND ADULTS…THE ELDERLY AND PEOPLE WITH RESPIRATORY DISEASES SUCH AS ASTHMA…SHOULD AVOID PROLONGED OUTDOOR EXERTION.”

Smoke from the Colorado wildfires is also contributing to unhealthy conditions for sensitive groups, including the elderly and those with respiratory problems, in Colorado Springs, Boulder and Denver.

As the high shifts east over the next several days, heat will continue to surge into the Midwest, South and mid-Atlantic. Unfortunately, air quality issues are also anticipated.

Areas south of the Ohio River are in for the worst conditions as far as heat and air quality go into the weekend.

Farther north, some scattered showers and thunderstorms that will help mix the air and diminish the air quality concerns will ignite from the Dakotas to the mid-Atlantic coast.

A heat wave breaking all-time records across the Plains will shift into the Midwest and East by late in the week and into the weekend, bringing 100-degree temperatures to more than a dozen states.

A large dome of high pressure has been promoting blistering sunshine across Colorado, Nebraska and Kansas with widespread highs reaching 100 plus. The area of high pressure will shift into the Midwest and East through the end of the week, allowing dangerous heat and humidity to surge.

People are urged to stay indoors in air conditioning as much as possible, avoid strenuous activities outdoors and drink plenty of water.

RELATED: Dangerous Heat, Poor Air Quality to Impact Millions

Temperatures rose well above 100 once again on Wednesday in parts of the central Plains, busting numerous records. Dodge City, Kan., reached 111, setting a new all-time record high.

Chicago’s high will challenge the record high of 101 degrees on Thursday. With humidity factored in, the AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperature will be closer to 110 degrees.

The last time that Chicago hit 100 degrees or higher was on July 24, 2005 when thermometers registered 102.

The Southeast will start feeling the heat on Thursday as highs climb into the mid-90s. Again, AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures will feel like 100 degrees and higher.

The core of heat will continue to shift farther north and east on Friday with 90s in the mid-Atlantic. New York City to Washington, D.C., will once again hit the 90s. At the same time, portions of the Southeast will skyrocket to the 100-degree mark.

Saturday will be the peak of the heat for the East with communities from Atlanta to Washington, D.C., approaching and surpassing 100 degrees.

The temperature in Atlanta has not reached 100 degrees or higher since Aug. 22, 2007, but that should change on Saturday.

A cold front will erase the heat for portions of the Northeast, including Boston and New York City by Monday. Meanwhile, the southern mid-Atlantic and Southeast will continue to scorch into July Fourth.

Colorado fires: Tens of thousands flee ‘monster’ blaze

A wildfire of “epic proportions” has forced 32,000 people from their homes in Colorado after suddenly doubling in size, overwhelming firemen and sweeping into the state’s second-largest city.

By , New York

 The Telegraph

Firemen had set up a perimeter in an attempt to contain the blaze, one of 10 currently burning across the central US state, after it took hold of 6,000 acres of the Pikes National Forest, just west of Colorado Springs.

But on Wednesday, fanned by a windy thunderstorm, it spread to cover more than 15,000 acres – 24 square miles – quickly overwhelming fire crews and tearing into neighbourhoods on the city’s west side.

More than 32,000 of the city’s 419,000 residents were ordered to leave their homes. Local politicians described the scene as akin to “the worst movie set you can imagine”. Fleeing residents covered their faces with T-shirts and bandannas to breathe through the smoke.

It marked the most dramatic development yet in America’s summer wildfire season, the worst in recent years, which has been fuelled by searing, record-setting heat and prolonged drought. Most, if not all, of Utah, Colorado, Wyoming and Montana are under red flag warnings, meaning extreme fire danger.

On Wednesday the air above Colorado Springs, which sits beneath the Rocky Mountains, was filled with plumes of heavy smoke and ash which could be seen nearly 100 miles away in Denver.

There were fears that the fire could grow even larger, with only five per cent of the blaze being described as “contained”. It has been suggested that it could continue to burn for more than a month fuelled by the dry conditions and temperatures that exceed 100F each day.

Rich Brown, the Colorado fire chief, said the blaze was a “monster” which was “not remotely close to being contained”, adding: “This is a fire of epic proportions… This is an active fire … please do not be deceived.”

He said it was still unclear how many homes in Colorado Springs had been destroyed. “There are some homes impacted, there is no question about it. We do not know the number,” he said. John Hickenlooper, the governor of Colorado, flew above the fire on his way to Colorado Springs. He said looking down on it from the air was like looking at a military invasion.

“It was almost like looking at the worst movie set you could imagine,” he said. “You could see exactly where the fire came down. All the bright spots, as you got closer, you saw they were people’s homes. They weren’t trees on fire. They were people’s homes, burned to the ground, block after block. It’s almost surreal. It’s like nothing I’ve ever seen before.”

The notice for 32,000 people to evacuate the area was issued to residents in Colorado Springs to the west of Interstate 25, the road that dissects the state from north to south.

Brit Robinson, 44, and her nine-year-old triplet daughters were among those who fled, not knowing if their home was still standing. Miss Robinson, who lives in Rockrimmon, said: “My parents live above me on the mountain in Peregrine and as we left we could see the flames getting close. We think that houses in Peregrine and Rockrimmon are burning but we don’t know if our homes are on fire or not. We will be devastated if something does happen to the house but I am just happy we are safe. It could have been so much worse.”

Christine Williams and her daughter Serina saw flames just 30 yards from their apartment complex when they fled. “It’s like we’ve had our life swiped out from underneath us,” said Serina

In the north of the state, near Fort Collins, a fire in High Park is already the second worst in the history of Colorado. It started following a lightning strike on June 9 and is currently only 65 per cent contained. It has destroyed 257 homes and as of yesterday had spread across 87,284 acres. One person has been killed.

More than 2,400 residents in the city of Boulder were on Wednesday told to evacuate the area following another fire in the north of the state.

Colorado wildfire of ‘epic proportions’ displaces 32,000

(CNN) — Firefighters again will battle inferno-like conditions on Wednesday as they try to tame an explosive wildfire that has already chased some 32,000 residents from their homes near Colorado Springs, Colorado.

“This is a firestorm of epic proportions,” Richard Brown, the Colorado Springs Fire chief, said late Tuesday. Winds gusting to 65 mph through mountain canyons blew the wildfire through containment lines into northwest Colorado Springs on Tuesday afternoon.

Gov. John Hickenlooper surveyed the Waldo Canyon Fire, telling reporters it was a difficult sight to see.

“There were people’s home’s burned to the ground. It was surreal,” he said late Tuesday night. “There’s no question, it’s serious. It’s as serious as it gets.”

The 6,200-acre fire remained only 5% contained. Officials labeled it as exhibiting “extreme fire behavior.”

Becky Shormann has nervously listened to news reports since Saturday, the day the fire started prompting her to evacuate the area with her husband.

She hoped her home would be spared.

The family managed to take some sentimental items with them when they left, but still had to leave behind a boat, a pair of ATVs, a China cabinet and an antique doll collection.

“I keep telling myself: It’s going to be okay,” she said.

Schormann told CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360″ that flames came to within 20 feet of their home but were beaten back.

“Our volunteer fire department is just awesome,” she said.

The Schormanns are staying in an RV at their daughter’s home. The family’s two dogs, a pony and a donkey also came along for the ride.

The flames from the same wildfire also are dangerously close to the U.S. Air Force Academy campus. An evacuation order has been issued for about 700 residents in its Pine Valley Housing and 1,400 in Douglass Valley Housing, said public affairs officer John Van Winkle.

The academy’s powered flight, glider and parachuting operations have been called off since Saturday so that the U.S. Forest Service could use runways for helicopters used to fight fires along Colorado’s Front Range, Van Winkle said.

The academy’s Class of 2016, all 1,045 cadets, will arrive Thursday.

“The fire conditions could not be worse,” said Anne Rys-Sikora, spokeswoman for a multi-agency fire response team. “It is like a convection oven out there.”

Colorado Springs set a record high of 101 on Tuesday as firefighters contended with brutal conditions, including ash falling on highways and neighborhoods. Officials rushed in crews and aerial equipment in a bid to slow the fire.

The forecast stays hot and dry for the foreseeable future, with daytime highs not falling out of the 90s until early next week, according to the National Weather service.

Dave Barjenbruch, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service office in Boulder, said the past week has been hellish across Colorado.

“Even in the foothills, where most of the fires are going on, most days have been in the single-digit humidity,” he said.

Thunderstorms such as the one that fed the Waldo Canyon Fire on Tuesday are heavy on fire-feeding gusty winds and low on much-needed rainfall, Barjenbruch said.

Meanwhile, a new fire in Boulder, northwest of Denver, prompted pre-evacuation notices to 2,300 phone numbers.

Six other wildfires were active in the state, according to the Colorado Division of Emergency Management.

The largest of the fires was the High Park Fire, which began June 9 and has now consumed 87,284 acres, the U.S. Forest Service said. It was 65% contained Tuesday. The total number of homes lost rose to 257. An estimated $33.1 million has been spent trying to contain the blaze.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency authorized the use of federal funds to help fight the Waldo Canyon Fire after Colorado Springs and surrounding El Paso County declared an emergency, which allows them to receive state and federal aid.

A large section of Utah was under a red-flag warning, with at least three wildfires burning Tuesday.

Authorities said they found the body of one person after they entered the evacuated areas of the Wood Hollow Fire. The victim had not been identified, according to the Sanpete County Sheriff’s Office

FEMA is providing funds to help fight the Wood Hollow Fire, which has grown to nearly 39,000 acres since starting Saturday afternoon. Containment was 15%.

West of Provo, Utah, the Dump Fire stood at 5,007 acres and was 100% contained, officials said.

Indiana drought a concern for farmers

by Staff Writers
West Lafayette, Ind. (UPI)


Indiana has had less rain than normal because of continued high pressure and lack of moisture from the Gulf of Mexico, the state’s primary source of moisture.

Indiana farmers and livestock producers still can recover from one of the worst droughts in more than two decades, but time is growing short, researchers say.

While one of the earliest onslaughts of extremely dry conditions in more than 20 years is drying out crop fields and forages, it’s not yet time to hit the panic button, Purdue University researchers said Tuesday.

“Clearly, there are some truly severely stressed regions of the state,” Bob Nielsen, Purdue corn specialist, said. “But if you look at the state as a whole, the corn has hung in there amazingly well.”

Although dryness is not uncommon in Indiana in the summer, it is unusual for drought to hit in the spring, as it did this year soon after farmers planted corn and soybeans, researchers said.

“It is among the earliest onsets of severe, dry weather we’ve had in at least the last 25 years or so,” Nielsen said.

Indiana has had less rain than normal because of continued high pressure and lack of moisture from the Gulf of Mexico, the state’s primary source of moisture, the Indiana State Climate Office based at Purdue said.

It still is possible for the corn crop to produce yields close to trend, Nielsen said, but it would need widespread and timely rains now and for the remainder of the season.

“It’s not a disaster yet. We still have opportunities to recover. There has been yield loss that we won’t recover, but I don’t think it has been dramatic yield loss,” he said.

The Emerald City has seen significant rainfall over the month of June. Photo courtesy of John Foxx of photos.com.

While parts of the U.S. are facing severe drought issues, the upper West Coast is having no such problem. Both Seattle, Wash., and Portland, Ore., are seeing one of the wettest months of June on record.

Seattle has received 2.83 inches thus far in June, 199 percent of the city’s normal June rainfall total. This total ties June 1984 as the sixth wettest June on record. On average, June brings 1.57 inches of rain to the Emerald City.

Portland has been hit with even more than Seattle, with 3.77 inches thus far. This brings them to 242 percent of the normal 1.7 inches for June.

“A southward scoop of winds high in the atmosphere, known as a jet stream trough, has been directing frequent storms in from the Pacific Ocean,” said AccuWeather Expert Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski.

“In turn, the storms keep the coastal areas rather cloudy and damp from the western slopes of the Cascades to the Olympic Peninsula. Areas east of the Cascades have been less wet and not as cool with the mountains screening out most of the moisture,” Sosnowski said.

Though June is winding down, with only 3 days left more rain is headed toward Seattle. The city can expect showers tomorrow, Friday and Saturday before kicking off the month of July with a set of storms on the first.

Portland will likely see more rain as well with a passing shower in the afternoon tomorrow and showers in the afternoon and evening Saturday.

Today Flash Flood India State of Manipur, [Imphal East district] Damage level Details

Flash Flood in India on Thursday, 28 June, 2012 at 08:13 (08:13 AM) UTC.

Description
A flash flood triggered by incessant rains for the past several days has affected thousands of people, inundated several villages and washed away 40 houses in Jiribam sub-division of Manipur’s Imphal East district. Official sources said today the water level of different rivers in the district have, however, started receding as rains stopped and the weather cleared. According to Jiribam police, four persons were still missing. Among them is a 27-year-old man who was swept away by the overflowing Jiri river in Jiribam, which borders Assam after saving his uncle from drowning in the flood waters yesterday. The body is yet to be recovered. The flash flood inundated the Jiribam market and several villages including Sanathong, Ningthembam, Patchao besides washing away 40 houses at Khusoithok nearby Jiribam town. The flood affected have been provided shelter in different relief camps, the sources said adding more than 1,300 people were kept at the Jiribam Junior High School. Reports from Jiribam said authorities have started surveying to assess the damage and affected persons to provide government assistance. Reports from other districts said major rivers including Jiri, Imphal (Imphal district), Iril (in Imphal) have started receding fast as rains stopped today and the weather brightened in the valley districts. Imphal river which was flowing near the danger level yesterday started receding fast and state Irrigation Minister Ngamthang Haokip ordered the opening of Ithai barrage to allow the water to flow into Loktak lake.

Heavy rains and landslides in Bangladesh kill 90

BBC News

Large parts of the port city of Chittagong are badly affected by the floods

Heavy rains causing multiple landslides over the past three days have killed at least 90 people in south-east Bangladesh, officials say.

Officials are describing it as the worst monsoon rainfall in years in the Chittagong region. Chittagong is the second largest city of Bangladesh.

At least 150,000 people have also been stranded by the floods, officials say.

Rescue operations are continuing but rain is hampering efforts. Flights to Chittagong airport have been cancelled.

Most rail links have also been suspended after a railway bridge collapsed. Days of heavy rain have caused mud banks to collapse, burying houses and blocking roads.

Map

Those killed were drowned in flash floods, hit by landslides, struck by lightning or buried by wall collapses.

Many homeless people live at the foot of the hills or close to them despite warnings from the authorities about the danger of landslides.

Chittagong port received 40cm (15.75in) of rain in a single 12-hour period on Tuesday. The BBC’s Anbarasan Ethirajan in Dhaka says that dozens of people are still missing and the death toll is expected to increase.

Our correspondent says that the downpours have flooded vast areas of the city, displacing thousands of people.

Communications disrupted

“We are having the worst rainfall in many years,” said Jainul Bari, district commissioner for Cox’s Bazar, one of the affected areas.

Volunteers using loudspeakers warned people about the danger of heavy rainfall and landslides in Cox’s Bazar, officials say, but local people and rescuers were still left helpless when floodwater suddenly inundated dozens of villages and severely disrupted communications.

In neighbouring Bandarban district, bodies have been recovered from multiple landslide sites, local officials have said.

Bandarban police chief Saiful Ahmed told the AFP news agency that most of the victims were asleep when huge waves of mud and debris buried them alive.

“One family has lost 12 members,” Mr Ahmed said.

Other officials have said that they are expecting more heavy rain in the next few days.

Security forces have been deployed to help the search and rescue effort.

Chittagong has been hit repeatedly by monsoon rain and landslides in recent years. As a result, the government has tried to tighten rules on where development can take place but with little success.

Description
More than 55 people have been killed in landslides in southeast Bangladesh after three days of rains that triggered flash floods and severed transport links, officials said Wednesday. The army has been deployed to help with search and rescue efforts in the affected hill region of Chittagong, said the region’s chief administrator, Sirajul Haq Khan, who warned that the toll could rise. According to Khan, at least 26 people died in a series of landslides and flash floods in and around Chittagong port and the district of Cox’s Bazar. In neighbouring Bandarban district, 30 bodies have been recovered from multiple landslide sites, local administrator Tariqul Islam said. “Rescue efforts had been hampered as communications have been largely snapped because of flash floods and heavy rain,” Islam said. “Ten of the victims were children and scores of others were injured,” he said. Bandarban police chief Saiful Ahmed said most of the victims were asleep when the huge chunks of mud buried them alive. “One family has lost 12 members,” Ahmed said. Chittagong port received 40 centimetres (16 inches) of rain in a single 12-hour period on Tuesday. Flights in and out of Chittagong’s Shah Amanat International Airport have been suspended since Tuesday afternoon. According to the state Disaster Management Information Centre, around 50,000 people were affected by the flash floods, and many of them forced to take shelter on higher ground. Train links between Chittagong and the rest of the country were also severed after a railway bridge collapsed due to a rain-triggered flash flood.

Radiation / Nuclear

Never Ending Loads of Disinformation From the Liars at Tokyo Electric Power Company

Richard Wilcox
Activist Post

One thing that Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco) can be relied upon for: a never ending stream of disinformation with cesium laden piles of putridity.

Firstly, there is the matter of the Unit 4 spent fuel pool, that many experts claim could collapse in a major earthquake leading to massive releases of radiation.

When I sent the story written by Japanese Diplomat, Akio Matsumura, to a Japanese professor I know whose focus is international relations, the tenure-track professor dismissed it as “tabloid journalism.” Talk about a nation with its focus on its own navel, they don’t even know what danger they are in despite the 3/11 catastrophe.

Can you imagine what respectable people who attend conferences and wear suits and ties would have said of someone like me if I went on a campaign to alert people of the disaster that awaited Japan pre-March 2011? I would have been completely ignored or laughed at as a Cassandra and conspiracy nut! So were many sincere anti-nuclear activists at the Citizens Nuclear Information Center in Tokyo.

Now we have to attend to the matter of Tepco’s arrogant stupidity, snideness and snottiness. On April 26, 2012, Tepco attempted to refute claims by Arnie Gunderson and other nuclear experts that the Unit 4 fuel pool building was tilting. Tepco stated that “[t]he No. 4 reactor building is not tilted and it, including the storage pool, will not be destroyed by a quake” (1).

Yet, very recently we learned from NHK and Tepco itself that the Unit 4 building is less stable than previously thought. NHK, the conservative government-run news station reports of “Tilted walls found at Fukushima No.4 reactor” which is different than the entire building being tilted, but does indicate serious problems (2).
Tepco itself has admitted that the Reactor 4 bulge is worse than previously announced. The Fukushima Diary website reports that “[t]he South-West corner of reactor 4 building turned out to be bulged” and leaning outward. This clearly contradicts Tepco’s earlier illogical stance quoted above and analyzed and debunked elsewhere (3; 4; 5).

There is more evidence of contradictions from Tepco (i.e., the Nuclear Village), who appear to run the Japanese government, based on statements made by Tepco in a recent news report, versus what the government has stated regarding the speed to which Tepco will remove the fuel rods from the badly damaged Unit 4 building. Perhaps international pressure along with vociferous anti-nuclear domestic protests are working to some extent, given the following report:

Workers at the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant will begin removing fuel rods from a damaged reactors a year ahead of schedule, a government minister said June 21, a move to address concerns about the risk of a new quake that could cause a further accident and scatter more radioactive debris. ‘We would like to start taking out undamaged fuel this year. Preparation is now under way,’ Japan’s nuclear crisis minister, Goshi Hosono, told Reuters in an interview (6).

However, in the recent news report aired on June 25, 2012, by ABC Australia (7), we learn from the Tepco spokesman that they have no plans to remove the fuel rods until 2013.

Perhaps the word did not get out, or there is a disconnect between what the government is trying to promote versus what Tepco is deciding to do. It’s another case of the Keystone Kops (Tepco) playing a game of tiddlywinks with the Larry, Curly and Moe Outfit (Japan Government).

It is worth noting that while the ABC Australia reporters did an excellent job of highlighting the dangers of the Unit 4 spent fuel pool issue, Australia itself is a major exporter of uranium to Japan and part of the global nuclear mafia which benefits from the incredibly expensive and fantastically dangerous nuclear energy scam (8).

In another matter of Tepco’s bad behavior we learn that just as in the case of the BP oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, when BP was actually put in charge of the disaster (i.e., the arsonist investigating the fire), so too has Tepco taken over jurisdiction of Japanese waters:

Many Japanese are wary of the government’s assurances about test results, and Tokyo Electric has made people more suspicious by refusing to let independent experts survey waters inside the roughly 12-mile exclusion zone around the plant. ‘I don’t think anyone now would lie about radiation levels, but in the end, it’s the consumer who will decide,’ said Yoshiaki Saito, a wholesaler who handles tuna, crab and other seafood at the Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo. If nothing else, fish caught near Fukushima would probably fetch far lower prices (9).

Whether or not “Fukushima sea food [is] ‘safe’ for eating” or not, (10), this government survey of sea water near the TEPCO Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant shows very low levels of radiation detected. Apparently the charts convey a contradictory reading of “ND” meaning not detectable; while at the same time recording levels of 1.3 becquerals of cesium 134 per liter of sea water (11).

Japan sorry for not using US radiation map

by Staff Writers
Tokyo (AFP)

 

A Japanese minister apologised Tuesday for the nation’s failure to make use of a United States-made map showing how radiation was spreading from crippled reactors in the days after the Fukushima crisis.

Tokyo admitted that confusion among government departments meant the map was never used and evacuees were not directed away from areas where radiation from the leaking nuclear plant was spiking.

“It is extremely regrettable that (the information) was not used by the government,” Industry Minister Yukio Edano told reporters Tuesday.

“I apologise to the people who were affected,” he said, according to the Asahi Shimbun newspaper.

US military aircraft collected radiation data in areas around the Fukushima Daiichi plant, which was hit by the earthquake and tsunami of March 11, 2011, sending three reactors into meltdown.

The survey was conducted from March 17 to 19 for the US Department of Energy. It showed that radioactive fallout was concentrated in areas northwest of the plant.

It was passed to the Japanese government, which did not have full knowledge of what was happening with the plant and had failed to inform people living in the area which direction they should head to avoid the fallout.

The map was shared with the Japanese foreign ministry, which forwarded it to the nuclear and industrial safety agency and the science ministry, local media said.

But it was never sent to the prime minister’s office, which did not advise people to avoid the high risk areas shown on the map.

Although no one is officially recorded as having died as a direct result of the radiation, it forced tens of thousands of people from their homes, with many still unable to return.

Scientists say contamination has made some areas around the plant unfit for farming and fishing for many decades to come.

Japan, which at the weekend decided to restart two idled nuclear reactors after the last of its 50 working reactors was shut down in early May, will spend the next four decades demolishing the wrecked Fukushima plant.

The major earthquake and tsunami left around 19,000 people dead or missing along Japan’s northern Pacific coast.

Glory – A Rainbow-Like Optical Phenomenon  MessageToEagle.com – A layer of stratocumulus clouds over the Pacific Ocean served as the backdrop for this rainbow-like optical phenomenon known as a glory.

Glories generally appear as concentric rings of color in front of mist or fog.

They form when water droplets within clouds scatter sunlight back toward a source of illumination (in this case the Sun). The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite acquired the image on June 20, 2012.

Although glories may look similar to rainbows, the way light is scattered to produce them is different.

Rainbows are formed by refraction and reflection; glories are formed by backward diffraction. The most vivid glories form when an observer looks down on thin clouds with droplets that are between 10 and 30 microns in diameter. The brightest and most colorful glories also form when droplets are roughly the same size.

From the ground or an airplane, glories appear as circular rings of color.The space shuttle Columbia observed a circular glory from space in 2003. In the image above, however, the glory does not appear circular.That’s because MODIS scans the Earth’s surface in swaths perpendicular to the path followed by the satellite. And since the swaths show horizontal cross sections through the rings of the glory, the glory here appears as two elongated bands of color that run parallel to the path of the satellite, rather than a full circle.

Glories always appear around the spot directly opposite the Sun, from the perspective of the viewer. This spot is called the anti-solar point.

Acquired June 20, 2012 Image credit: NASATo visualize this, imagine a line connecting the Sun, a viewer, and the spot where the glory appears. In this case, the anti-solar point falls about halfway between the two colored lines of the glory.

Glories are usually seen against a background of white clouds. Clouds are white because the sunlight is scattered many times by multiple droplets within the clouds.

The white light often obscures details of glories, but without them in the background, the glory would not be visible.

Another notable feature in this image are the swirling von karman vortices that are visible to the right of the glory.

The alternating double row of vortices form in the wake of an obstacle, in this instance the eastern Pacific island of Guadalupe.

 Project Camelot

I find it fun and entertaining to actually hear someone speak the truth once and a while.  In the case of Gordon Duff, editor of Veteran’s Today we get at least some truth which is more than can be said from most anything else out there on the net today…

For example.  In today’s article he is writing the U.S. Army and DARPA official story on 911 and it goes like this…

Here is where things stand on 9/11 today:

  • The official accepted belief on the towers is that the two were destroyed by 4 small nuclear devices, two in the basement, two on upper floors, that produced over a million degrees of heat that dissolved the building, put out minor radiation for a short distance and kept fires burning for months.  It vaporized enough steel to build 3 huge aircraft carriers and huge beams hundreds of yards away show more damage than anything in Hiroshima.  This is the official opinion of DARPA and the US Army.   This is highly classified but I am printing it anyway. 
  • Building 7 is said to have been destroyed with conventional explosives.
  • No official secret finding has been reached on the Pentagon attack other than that wreckage from a Columbia crash in 1995 was dumped on the lawn and the site was altered during the day to simulate an air crash.  I have not been given access to anything beyond this and choose not to make something up.
  • The official finding as to rationale for the 9/11 attacks was to cheat insurance companies out of billions.  Those who have examined US policy said that there were other simpler possibilities for bringing the US to war other than the 9/11 action against the US.  (for those who don’t catch the connection, it has been accepted that 9/11 was an “inside job”)
  • Many Israeli teams were involved in 9/11 and the twin tower attack was entirely an Israeli action with our military and intelligence services denying involvement.  This is not my opinion, this is official.
  • Several Israeli teams were arrested on 9/11, one after the George Washington Bridge explosion.  There were other attacks on 9/11 thwarted by police, one on the Lincoln Tunnel.  There is no evidence of an attack on the Verrazano Bridge or Brooklyn Bridge.  Arrests were made of the Israeli’s at the GWB, hard proof exists but the arrests at the Lincoln Tunnel, two Israeli citizens, van of explosives and weapons is only backed by limited police testimony and they are scared to death.  An authoritative source on the scene says the terrorists, Israelis, were turned over to Bernie Kerik, Police Commissioner and never heard from again.


Now he hasn’t mentioned the liklihood of a particle beam weapon (Judy Wood is talking about this) being used on the Twin Towers or the holograms of Planes which Jim Fetzer and John Lear describe very well but this is a case of “and they used a particle beam weapon and holograms” not “or”… So I still give Duff cudos for coming out with a good dose of truth.

Of course there are places he doesn’t go but his info on Romney who is a real piece of work (later in the same article) is full of good info and I for one, appreciate this excellent true statement:

The nominating process, which has yet to conclude, has been wrought with vote rigging, millions in bribes and violations of every kind.

Ron Paul won and Romney is a foreign spy, a demagogue, a dangerous fanatic and has spent his life as part of an organized crime syndicate.  Most elections, priaries, caucuses were rigged, almost all show clear criminal activity and there is no effort to correct this because the election for president of the United States is being managed from Tel Aviv (read Moscow).

Thanks Duff for telling it like it is regarding so-called free elections in the U.S.!!

New Obama Executive Order Seizes U.S. Infrastructure and Citizens for Military Preparedness

Brandon Turbeville
BlacklistedNews.com

In a stunning move, on March 16, 2012, Barack Obama signed an Executive Order stating that the President and his specifically designated Secretaries now have the authority to commandeer all domestic U.S. resources including food and water. The EO also states that the President and his Secretaries have the authority to seize all transportation, energy, and infrastructure inside the United States as well as forcibly induct/draft American citizens into the military. The EO also contains a vague reference in regards to harnessing American citizens to fulfill “labor requirements” for the purposes of national defense.

The Vetting – Holder 1995: We Must ‘Brainwash’ People on Guns

by Joel B. Pollak

Breitbart.com has uncovered video from 1995 of then-U.S. Attorney Eric Holder announcing a public campaign to “really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way.”

Holder was addressing the Woman’s National Democratic Club. In his remarks, broadcast by CSPAN 2, he explained that he intended to use anti-smoking campaigns as his model to “change the hearts and minds of people in Washington, DC” about guns.

Holder’s Brainwashing Against Guns Foreshadowed Operation Fast and Furious

Yesterday, Breitbart.com revealed exclusive video of then-U.S. Attorney Eric Holder speaking to the Woman’s National Democratic Club, stating that he wanted to “brainwash” people against gun ownership.

The video reveals Attorney General Holder’s early, consistent, and strident enthusiasm for gun control legislation. He wanted schools to talk about anti-gun propaganda “every day, every school, and every level.”

Operation Fast and Furious — in which Holder’s Department of Justice (DOJ) smuggled guns illegally to Mexican drug cartels — could finally have provided Holder the material for that anti-gun curriculum.

WAR PLAN IRAN: Dispelling the Lies, Telling the Truth about Western Aggression in the Persian Gulf

GR ONLINE NEWS READER

by Finian Cunningham and Michel Chossudovsky

The year 2012 may become known as a watershed for humanity – the year when mankind was precipitated into a global conflagration involving nuclear weapons. The signs are indeed grimly ominous as formidable military forces converge on the Persian Gulf in the long-running stand-off between the United States and Iran.

On side with the US are its European allies in NATO, primarily Britain, Washington’s Middle East client states: Israel and the Arab monarchies of the Persian Gulf – all bristling with weapons of mass destruction. Recent naval exercises by Iran in the Strait of Hormuz have also displayed a fierce arsenal of missiles and military capability, and Iran has strategic alliances with Russia and China, both of whom will not stand idly by if their Persian partner is attacked.

As we have consistently analysed on Global Research, the conflict between the US-led powers and Iran has wider ramifications. It is part and parcel of Washington’s bid to engineer the social and political upheavals across the Arab World in order to redraw the region in its strategic interests. It is no coincidence that fresh from NATO’s conquest of and regime change in Libya, the focus has quickly shifted to Syria – a key regional ally of Iran. As Michel Chossudovsky has pointed out “the road to Tehran goes through to Damascus”. Regime change in Syria would serve to isolate Iran. Subjugating Iran and returning it to Western tutelage is the prize that Washington and its allies have been seeking for the past 33 years ever since their client the Shah, Mohammad Rezā Pahlavi, was deposed by the Islamic Revolution in 1979.

Global arms trade growth by a quarter is spurred by India

Fears of arms race in Asia as Stockholm peace institute data shows India is now biggest importer

The global arms trade has grown by nearly a quarter over the last four years, with new growth mainly in poorer countries and India now officially the world’s biggest importer of arms, research has revealed.

Statistics published on Monday by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute show that demand from emerging economies – in particular India – drove the volume of worldwide arms transfers between 2007 and 2011 to a level 24% higher than in the previous four years.

Megaupload Seizure Order “Null and Void” Says High Court

In another astonishing development in the Megaupload saga, a judge in New Zealand’s High Court has declared the order used to seize Kim Dotcom’s assets as “null and void”. The blunder, which occurred because the police applied for the wrong type of court order, means that the Megaupload founder could have his property returned.

Just when it seemed that the handling of the Megaupload case couldn’t get any more controversial, a development from New Zealand has taken things to the next level.

Resistance to antibiotics could bring “the END OF MODERN MEDICINE AS WE KNOW IT”


The world is entering an antibiotic crisis which could make routine operations impossible and a scratched knee potentially fatal, the head of the World Health Organisation has claimed.
Bacteria are starting to become so resistant to common antibiotics that every antibiotic ever developed is at risk of becoming useless, making once-routine operations impossible. This would include many of the breakthrough drugs developed to treat tuberculosis, malaria, bacterial infections and HIV/AIDS, as well as simple treatments for cuts. We could be entering into a “post-antibiotic era”.
Replacement medicines could become more expensive, with longer periods of treatment required to bring about the same effect. “Things as common as strep throat or a child’s scratched knee could once again kill.
Antimicrobial resistance is on the rise in Europe and elsewhere in the world. We are losing our first-line antimicrobials. Replacement treatments are more costly, more toxic, need much longer durations of treatment, and may require treatment in intensive care units. For patients infected with some drug-resistant pathogens, mortality has been shown to increase by around 50 per cent.”
The stark warning comes shortly after the World Health Organisation published a new book warning of the “global crisis”, entitled “The evolving threat of antimicrobial resistance. The current situation was blamed largely on the misuse of antibiotics, which are not prescribed properly and used too frequently and for too long. The WHO has now appealed to governments across the world to support research into the antimicrobial resistance.
