Problems at Five Nuclear Plants - Hurricane Sandy

October 30, 2012 by legitgov

Problems at Five Nuclear Plants - Hurricane Sandy 30 Oct 2012 The nation's oldest nuclear plant declared an alert and a second plant just 40 miles from New York City was forced to shut down power as five different nuke plants in Hurricane Sandy's path experienced problems during the storm. Indian Point in Buchanan, New York, on the Hudson River north of New York City, automatically shut power to its unit 3 on Monday night "as a result of an electrical grid disturbance," according to Entergy, the plant's operator... Operators also declared an alert at the nation's oldest nuclear plant, Oyster Creek in Lacey Township, New Jersey, on Monday evening after the center of Sandy made landfall, "due to water exceeding certain high water level criteria in the plant's water intake structure." The plant also lost power, which is critical to keep spent fuel rods from overheating, but "the station's two backup diesel generators activated immediately," Exelon said.

October 30, 2012 by walden9

One week to Election Day in America: The real choice for workers 30 Oct 2012 The American population is presented with a "choice" between two multi-millionaires. One, the Republican candidate Mitt Romney, personifies the financial speculators whose criminality and greed triggered the financial crisis that erupted in 2008. The other, President Obama, has devoted his entire administration to protecting and expanding the wealth of the financial elite, destroying the democratic rights of the American people, and escalating military aggression internationally.

October 30, 2012 by legitgov

Transformer explosion at 14th St Con Edison building 30 Oct 2012 A transformer reportedly exploded last night as Hurricane Sandy slammed the city, shortly before power was lost throughout much of lower Manhattan. A power failure struck the Con Edison command center near Union Square around 8pm, according to the Wall Street Journal, following a substation failure that is reportedly responsible for loss of power in Greenwich Village and Lower Manhattan. Con Ed had preemptively cut power to residents south of the Brooklyn Bridge in Manhattan to protect underground equipment from water damage, in a move described as unprecedented.

Polar Bears on Thin Ice

Polar Bears on Thin Ice By Boyd Matson 29 Oct 2012 Skating on thin ice. That could be the story line for polar bears this past summer in the Norwegian Arctic. When I was up there in the waters around Svalbard, Norway, it seemed as if the ice was disappearing faster than in previous years. Without ice, the polar bears don't have a platform from which to hunt seals, the main source of fat rich food.

October 29, 2012 by legitgov

Con Edison shuts off power to part of Lower Manhattan 29 Oct 2012 New York power company Consolidated Edison Inc said on Monday that it had shut off power to part of Lower Manhattan to protect company equipment and customers and to allow for quicker restoration after Hurricane Sandy passes. [Hmm. Remember when the Bush-owned 'security' company pulled the bomb-sniffing dogs from the WTC -- and cut *all power* -- the weekend before the 9/11 inside job? With the shutdown of bridges, tunnels and mass transit, all they need now is one big fat false flag. Call me 'paranoid,' but I've seen USociopaths in action numerous times and there is nothing they would not do for control and profit. --LRP]

Con Ed Might Cut Power In Lower Manhattan

October 29, 2012 by legitgov

Con Ed Might Cut Power In Lower Manhattan 28 Oct 2012 Con Edison said that is considering cutting power to about 6,500 customers in Lower Manhattan if the surge from the Hurricane Sandy is severe enough to threaten underground lines. Manhattan alone has some 21,000 miles of power lines beneath its streets and Con Ed has said most of the below ground equipment is sealed to protect it from flooding. Still, the utility said the power may be cut as saltwater is more damaging to equipment if power is on.

Supreme court hears arguments on secret domestic surveillance

October 29, 2012 by legitgov

Supreme court hears arguments on secret domestic surveillance 29 Oct 2012 ...Key plaintiffs asked the Supreme Court on Monday to allow them to proceed with a lawsuit over the constitutionality of the federal government's sweeping electronic monitoring of targeted foreigners suspected of terrorism or spying. At issue: Can these American plaintiffs who deal with overseas clients and co-workers file suit if they reasonably fear the government was reading and hearing their sensitive communications? The specific question now is whether they have "standing" to challenge the federal law, without a specific showing they have been monitored. The National Security Agency has in turn refused to disclose specifics, which detractors call "Catch-22" logic.

Hospitals should make flu shots mandatory for health-care workers, journal says 29 Oct 2012 The Canadian Medical Association Journal has added its voice to calls for mandatory flu shots for health-care workers. In an editorial published in this week's issue, the journal said hospital workers ought to be vaccinated to safeguard [?!?] frail, elderly patients whose immune systems are so weakened they don't get much protection from a flu shot themselves. In recent years there has been a growing movement towards requiring health-care workers to take a flu shot, especially in the United States. Earlier this year British Columbia became the first Canadian jurisdiction to require health-care workers to be vaccinated 'against' the flu. [We'll take your shot after you take ours.]
