Former president Jimmy Carter says cancer has spread to his brain

August 20, 2015 by legitgov

Former president Jimmy Carter says cancer has spread to his brain | 20 Aug 2015 | Former president Jimmy Carter said that the cancer doctors discovered earlier this year on his liver has also been found on his brain. Carter, 90, said he will receive his first radiation treatment for the disease Thursday afternoon. Carter said Thursday that doctors found "four spots of melanoma on my brain -- small spots" after first discovering cancer during an Aug. 3 operation to remove a tumor from his liver. During that surgery, Carter said, doctors suspected that the cancer had originated in another part of his body. They later discovered the melanoma spots, about "two millimeters" in size, on his brain.

August 20, 2015 by legitgov

3 firefighters killed, 4 hurt battling one of Washington state's many wildfires | 19 Aug 2015 | Three firefighters died and four others were injured while battling a wildfire in northern Washington state, Gov. Jay Inslee said Wednesday evening. The firefighters were confronting a blaze in Okanogan County near the town of Twisp, about 150 miles northeast of Seattle. Inslee also requested a federal declaration of emergency for the state, saying 11 counties are battling more than 40 fires in all. Hours earlier, the approaching fire led officials to tell residents to evacuate the towns of Twisp and Winthrop, whose combined population is about 1,300, according to the U.S. Census Bureau's latest figures.

Critics of Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal warn about arbitration clause

August 20, 2015 by legitgov

Critics of Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal warn about arbitration clause | 19 Aug 2015 | When Australia began prohibiting brand logos and requiring grim pictures of smoking-borne diseases on cigarette packs, tobacco giant Philip Morris fired back using a novel tactic. It turned to an obscure dispute-arbitration clause in a 1993 trade agreement between Australia and Hong Kong to argue that the Australian government's new public-health law amounted to discrimination [!] and an expropriation of a foreign investment. That case, which is pending, illustrates what opponents of the Trans-Pacific Partnership say they fear most about the nearly completed trade corporate takeover pact: that it will benefit big corporations at the expense of consumers and workers. The provision allows multinational investors to sue foreign governments for expropriation and unfair or unequal treatment, giving them the ability to bring cases before a special, extrajudicial arbitration tribunal that is unavailable to domestic investors.

Avoid LongHorn Steakhouse: Millville, NJ, waitress fired by LongHorn Steakhouse after trying to save dog left in car by diners | 19 Aug 2015 | All Cristal Perez thought she was doing was helping a small dog that she felt was suffering while it was left inside a car at the Longhorn Steakhouse last week.

August 19, 2015 by legitgov

Two women make history as the first females to complete grueling Army Ranger school | 18 Aug 2015 | Two female soldiers will become the first ever to graduate from the Army's elite Ranger School this week after making history by completing the final agonizing leg of one of the U.S. military's most demanding courses. The women are part of a group of soldiers who hauled packs carrying 100 pounds through the rugged mountains of northern Georgia and the swamps of the Florida panhandle--while getting by on precious little food and sleep. The unidentified women, both of them West Point graduates, began the rigorous course in April along with 380 men and 17 other women as part of the first class to include women.

Burns, who lives in Bangkok, was made aware of the rumors by friends and presented himself to police. [Oh dear. Don't you just hate when you think all of your false flag ducklings are in a row, only to be undone by a pesky tattoo? --LRP]

Many major green groups released statements Monday slamming the BSEE's final approval of the company's drilling plan.

August 18, 2015 by legitgov

State Department flags 305 more Clinton e-mails for review [Yeah, too bad the media didn't give a d*mn when Bush/Cheney had '1,000 days of e-mails' that went missing from January 2003 to 10 August 2005, many of which likely covered their 9/11 drill-gone-live.] | 17 Aug 2015 | A State Department official told a federal judge Monday that 305 more of former secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton's e-mail messages have been flagged for further review by intelligence agencies, to see whether they contain classified material that should not be released to the public.

Japan's plutonium stockpile worries Oxford specialist | 17 Aug 2015 | The handling of Japan's huge plutonium stockpile remains a challenge for the whole world, an Oxford environmental expert has warned. When Japan marked the 70th anniversary of Nagasaki's obliteration by a plutonium bomb on Aug. 9, its own cache of weapons-usable plutonium was more than 47 metric tons, enough to make nearly 6,000 warheads like the one that flattened the Japanese city, Dr. Peter Wynn Kirby of University of Oxford wrote in an op-ed on Monday's New York Times.

They include a judge's forced disclosure of a 2008 internal document prepared for managers at Tokyo Electric Power Co warning of a need for precautions against an unprecedented nuclear catastrophe. Also, class actions against Tepco and the government now have more plaintiffs than any previous Japanese contamination suit and, overruling reluctant prosecutors, criminal charges have been levelled against former Tepco executives for failing to take measures to prevent the 2011 meltdowns and explosions.

How to de-oil a polar bear: Grim outlook for wildlife impacts from an Arctic spill | 15 Aug 2015 | In the event of a large oil spill in Alaska's Arctic, officials say they would have limited ability to clean oiled marine mammals, and in some cases might not be able to clean them at all. Assuming rescuers could reach them, polar bears would have to be cleaned just a few at a time. And the prospects for walruses are even grimmer...If a spill did happen in the Arctic, it could take several days for a U.S. Coast Guard ship to respond, depending on weather and sea ice, because of the region's size.

Nabisco plant worker asks Emanuel, Obama to save Chicago jobs [LOL! TPPimp Obama doesn't give a damn, and Rahm Emanuel is *useless.* Ask Donald Trump - he mentioned the job-killing Nabisco dirt-bags in Iowa.] | 12 June 2015 | A worker at Chicago's Nabisco plant reached out to Mayor Rahm Emanuel and President Barack Obama on Friday, asking for their help to keep hundreds of jobs in Chicago rather than seeing the work go to Mexico. Last month, Mondelez International told union officials representing more than 1,200 workers at its Chicago bakery that it plans to shut down nine of the 16 lines at the facility. It also wants to install four state-of-the-art production lines but said it would cost much more to put them in Chicago than at the company's new facility in Salinas, Mexico...If the company adds capacity in Mexico, Chicago stands to lose about 600 jobs.
