Polar bears have symptoms of mystery disease: U.S. agency 06 Apr 2012 Symptoms of a mysterious disease that has killed scores of seals off Alaska and infected walruses are now showing up in polar bears, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) said on Friday. Nine polar bears from the Beaufort Sea region near Barrow were found with patchy hair loss and oozing sores on their skin, similar to conditions found in diseased seals and walruses, the agency said in a statement. Preliminary studies showed that radiation poisoning is not the cause [?], temporarily ruling out a theory that the animals were sickened by contamination from the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan.

CIA stealth drones made hundreds of passes over Iran

April 8, 2012 by legitgov

CIA stealth drones made hundreds of passes over Iran 07 Apr 2012 More than three years ago, the CIA [illegally] dispatched a stealth surveillance drone into the skies over Iran. The bat-winged aircraft penetrated more than 600 miles inside the country, captured images of Iran's nuclear facility at Qom and then flew home. CIA stealth drones scoured dozens of sites throughout Iran, making hundreds of passes, before a version of the RQ-170 crashed inside Iran's borders in December. The surveillance has been part of what current and former U.S. officials describe as an intelligence surge that is aimed at Iran's nuclear program... The effort has included ramped-up eavesdropping by the National Security Agency, formation of an Iran task force among satellite-imagery analysts and an expanded network of spies, current and former U.S. officials said. [Gee, how would USociopaths react if another country dispatched hundreds of drones to illegally spy on America I wonder what the hypocritical sacks of sh*t at the Pentagon would say and do? --LRP]

Japan deploys missile defences in Tokyo

April 8, 2012 by legitgov

Japan deploys missile defences in Tokyo 08 Apr 2012 Japan has deployed missile batteries in Tokyo and dispatched destroyers carrying interceptor missiles as it boosts its defences against a planned North Korean rocket launch this month. Pyongyang says it will launch a satellite for peaceful scientific research between April 12 and 16 to mark the 100th anniversary on April 15 of the birth of founding leader Kim Il-Sung. But the United States and its allies say it is a disguised missile test [because that's what USociopaths do] and that the launch would contravene UN sanctions aimed at curbing North Korea's missile programme. Patriot missiles were Saturday deployed at three military facilities in the greater Tokyo region and the defence ministry dispatched three Aegis destroyers carrying sea-based interceptor missiles, reportedly to the East China sea.

Fukushima radiation found in California kelp

April 8, 2012 by legitgov

Fukushima radiation found in California kelp --Largest concentration was about 250 times higher than levels found in kelp before disaster. 07 Apr 2012 Kelp off California was contaminated with short-lived radioisotopes a month after Japan's Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant accident, a sign that the spilled radiation reached the state's coastline, according to a new scientific study. Scientists from CSU Long Beach tested giant kelp collected off Orange County, Santa Cruz and other locations after the March 2011 accident and detected radioactive iodine, which was released from the damaged nuclear reactor. Giant kelp concentrates radioactive iodine - for every 1 molecule in the water, there would be 10,000 in its tissues.

Earlier the justice secretary, Ken Clarke, defended the secret courts plan arguing it would make the system more accountable and more conducive to intelligence-sharing with other countries.

California nuclear plant shut indefinitely --In winter, federal regulators could not identify how much radioactive gas leaked or why it happened 07 Apr 2012 A large Southern California nuclear plant is out of commission indefinitely, and will remain so until there is an understanding of what caused problems at two of its generators and an effective plan to address the issues, the nation's top nuclear regulator said Friday. Gregory Jaczko, chairman of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, refused to give a timetable as to when the San Onofre nuclear plant could resume operation. The power plant has been shut since this winter, when radioactive gas escaped from a steam generator during a water leak.

The crash occurred around 12:30 p.m. Eastern time, and the two pilots aboard ejected safely.

April 6, 2012 by legitgov

Radioactive fluid leaks at French nuclear reactor 05 Apr 2012 Radioactive cooling fluid leaked at a French nuclear reactor Thursday following two fires, but the spillage was collected in special tanks, officials said. A reactor at the power plant in Penly on the English Channel near the port of Dieppe shut down automatically after two small fires broke out Thursday, the plant's operator EDF said. Firefighters easily extinguished the blazes but a cooling pump was damaged, in turn causing a joint to leak radioactive water into collection tanks located inside the reactor building, EDF said.

'Long Live Zimmerman' Spray-Painted On Ohio State's Black Cultural Center 06 Apr 2012 Officials say graffiti spray-painted on the wall of a black cultural center at Ohio State University likely stems from the nationwide unrest over the fatal shooting of a black Florida teenager.

"Keith, you are not a $10 million chandelier. You're the guy wearing a $50 lampshade sitting in the corner of the room that nobody else wants to go in," Limbaugh said, according to a transcript of his show.

"There will be similar leaks until Tepco improves equipment," said Kazuhiko Kudo, a research professor of nuclear engineering at Kyushu University, who visited the plant twice last year as a member of a panel under the Nuclear and Industry Safety Agency.
