Polar bears accumulate 'cocktail' of toxins, study finds 18 Oct 2011 A Danish study of Greenlandic polar bears has found a sinister "cocktail of environmental toxins" accumulating in their bones and tissues, according to a story posted this week by University of Copenhagen. Christian Sonne, a senior scientist at Aarhus University, examined the results of polar bear contaminant research between 2000 to 2010, and then analyzed bone and tissue samples from 100 bears living in eastern Greenland, all as part of his doctoral thesis. The stubborn accumulation of organic pollutants produced by humans and transported on air and ocean currents into the Arctic has become one of the Far North's most pressing ecological concerns.

Seven months on, Japan yet to set evacuation plans 21 Oct 2011 Japanese nuclear experts are considering widening the evacuation zone in the event of a nuclear disaster, more than seven months after the world's worst such disaster since Chernobyl.

A committee under Japan's Nuclear Safety Commission is considering creating a 30-kilometer (18-mile) radius around nuclear power plants where residents should be ready to take shelter or prepare to evacuate, a draft document compiled by the NSC secretariat and released by the NSC on Thursday showed.

Climate risk to polar bear habitats 20 Oct 2011 Climate change Global warming is set to drive a dramatic reduction in polar bear habitats in coming decades, conservationists have warned as they called for action to help the species. According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), recent trends for the extent and thickness of the marine sea ice that polar bears rely on suggests it is set to dramatically shrink over the next 50 to 100 years. The Arctic could see annual sea ice decline by between 10% and 50% by 2100, hitting polar bear populations, the IUCN said.

October 21, 2011 by legitgov

Senate blocks votes on jobs bills --'Every single Republican in the United States Senate has chosen to obstruct.' 21 Oct 2011 Democrats and Republicans tried to force versions of a jobs bill through the Senate late Thursday, but both fell short of the 60 votes [due to GOP obstruction of every bill] they would have needed to bring their proposals to the floor. In a 50-50 vote, senators blocked a component of President Barack Obama's jobs bill -- $35 billion for states and localities to hire more teachers and first responders while preventing current ones from being laid off. The funding would have been paid for by a 0.5% tax increase on people earning more than $1 million a year. Republicans opposed the tax increase.

Secret CIA-FBI files of NUMEC nuclear diversions to Israel could aid $170 million toxic cleanup 20 Oct 2011 Recently declassified wiretap transcripts of conversations between Nuclear Materials and Equipment Corporation (NUMEC) founder Zalman Shapiro and venture capitalist David Lowenthal reveal that illegal storage practices led to a dangerous nuclear spill. Obtained under the Freedom of Information Act by IRmep's Center for Policy and Law Enforcement, the files were heavily censored by the Central Intelligence Agency which blocked release of 225 pages. The transcript details that Shapiro and Lowenthal's interest in completing NUMEC's sale to Atlantic Richfield Company outweighed public safety concerns. This week the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) $170 million cleanup of NUMEC's toxic waste dump had to be halted after contractors experienced unanticipated difficulties handling 55-gallon radioactive waste drums.

Judge dismisses lawsuit by ten members of Congress over Libya 'mission' 20 Oct 2011 A federal court on Thursday dismissed a lawsuit ten members of Congress filed in June challenging Obama's right to keep U.S. military forces in the NATO campaign that contributed to the fall of Qadhafi's government and his ultimate demise. In a 23-page opinion, U.S. District Court Judge Walton ruled that the lawmakers lacked standing to challenge the military campaign in large part because they had and have the opportunity through legislative action to shut down the Libya operation. "They have not demonstrated that they are without a legislative remedy," Walton wrote.

GOP debate becomes Wild West bar fight in Vegas 19 Oct 2011 In order to give the CNN Western Republican Presidential Debate a regional flair, the network created a horseshoe logo. The candidates went one better. They turned the debate in to a Wild West bar fight. It started with a scuffle over Herman Cain's 9-9-9 tax plan, then tipped over tables in a skirmish over Mitt Romney's health care plan in Massachusetts. The candidates talked over each other, their voices escalating. They accused each other of lying. At one testy point, when Romney was lecturing Rick Perry about interrupting, he put his hand on the Texas governor's shoulder. He was trying to provoke him. Watch it, Mitt--he could be packing.

Iraq War Vet Shames Police at Occupy Wall Street --After observing police activity at this weekend's Occupy Wall Street protests, Sgt. Shemar Thomas says he saw better treatment of rioters in Iraq. --'This is not a war zone. They don't have guns. Why are you hurting these people?' 19 Oct 2011 As the crowds continue to swell at the Occupy Wall Street protests, so are the incidents of police brutality against the demonstrators. This weekend, however, after former U.S. Marine and Iraq war veteran Sgt. Shemar Thomas saw innocent protesters being hit with batons, he decided that enough was enough. "I saw a woman and a man getting hit with a baton. That infuriated me," he told ABC News following the incident. After becoming "infuriated," Thomas began shouting at police directly, saying, "These are unarmed people. It doesn't make you tough to hurt these people."

Ryan says he's done contract work for the U.S. Army and he brags on his blog that he leads "a team called Black Cell, a team of the most-highly trained and capable physical, threat and cyber security professionals in the world."
