TEPCO fears 3-cm hole in Fukushima reactor No. 2 30 Jan 2014 The suppression pool of the Fukushima Daiichi Unit No. 2 reactor may have a 3-centimeter hole in it, through which the highly radioactive water might be leaking out, the plant operator said. The information is based on the data gathered by a robot sent into the suppression pool at the bottom of the No. 2 reactor's primary containment vessel earlier in January. Plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) estimated the damaged area could be 8 to 9 square centimeters in size. If it is a hole, it is predicted to be between 3.2 and 3.6 centimeters in diameter.

Koch-backed political coalition, designed to shield donors, raised $400 million in 2012

Koch-backed political coalition, designed to shield donors, raised $400 million in 2012 05 Jan 2014 The political network spearheaded by conservative billionaires Charles and David Koch has expanded into a far-reaching operation of unrivaled complexity, built around a maze of groups that cloaks its donors, according to an analysis of new tax returns and other documents...The resources and the breadth of the organization make it singular in American politics: an operation conducted outside the campaign finance system, employing an array of groups aimed at stopping what its financiers view as government overreach. Key players in the Koch-backed network have already begun engaging in the 2014 midterm elections, hiring new staff members to expand operations and strafing House and Senate Democrats with hard-hitting ads over their support for the Affordable Care Act.

The Koch Network: A Cartological Guide 07 Jan 2014 Our joint analysis with the Washington Post of the Koch brothers' labyrinthine network of political groups -- none of which reveal the names of their donors -- showed that the coalition raised more than $400 million during the 2012 election... Some of the most prominent groups connected to billionaire conservatives Charles and David Koch include the Center to Protect Patient Rights, the existence and role of which was first reported by OpenSecrets Blog, and Freedom Partners Chamber of Commerce.

After billions in U.S. investment, Afghan roads are falling apart

After billions in U.S. investment, Afghan roads are falling apart 30 Jan 2014 They look like victims of an insurgent attack...but the patients who pour daily into the Ghazni Provincial Hospital are casualties of another Afghan crisis. They are motorists who drove on the road network built by the U.S. government and other Western donors -- a $4 billion project [of contractor welfare] that was once a symbol of promise in post-Taliban Afghanistan but is now falling apart. Despite those concerns, ***the U.S. government is still building new roads in Afghanistan***, multimillion-dollar projects whose funds were allocated years ago. [Gee, too bad Detroit isn't in Afghanistan! See, Congresscritters will appropriate *billions* for road repairs -- as long as they don't take place on US soil. --LRP]

The research has been published in the journal Plos One.

Rep. Grimm Apologizes to NY1 Reporter for On-Camera Threat

Rep. Grimm Apologizes to NY1 Reporter for On-Camera Threat 29 Jan 2014 Staten Island Rep. Michael Grimm has apologized to NY1 political reporter Michael Scotto a day after physically threatening him at the conclusion of an interview in the Capitol Rotunda following the president's State of the Union address. After initially saying he did nothing wrong, Republican Rep. Michael Grimm picked up the phone and apologized Wednesday to NY1 Washington bureau reporter Michael Scotto. Grimm's Wednesday morning apology came after he first characterized Scotto's question about his campaign donations as a "disrespectful" cheap shot. Grimm blamed his behavior on Hurricane Sandy [!?!], saying issues surrounding the storm weighed on him, and that contributed to his outburst.

James Clapper calls for Snowden and 'accomplices' to return NSA documents

James Clapper calls for Snowden and 'accomplices' to return NSA documents 29 Jan 2014 James Clapper, the director of national intelligence, has issued a blistering condemnation of Edward Snowden, calling the surveillance disclosures published by the Guardian and other news outlets a "perfect storm" that would endanger American lives. Testifying before a rare and unusually raucous public session of the Senate intelligence committee that saw yet another evolution in the Obama administration's defense of bulk domestic phone records collection, Clapper called on "Snowden and his accomplices" to return the documents the former National Security Agency contractor took, in order to minimize what he called the "profound damage that his disclosures have caused and continued to cause".

Federal rail agency collects minimal enforcement fines, documents show

Federal rail agency collects minimal enforcement fines, documents show 30 Jan 2014 The U.S. Department of Transportation collects relatively small civil penalties against the railroads it regulates, as concern grows over the safety of shipping large volumes of crude oil and ethanol in tank cars long known to be deficient, federal documents show. A McClatchy review of annual enforcement reports shows that the Federal Railroad Administration rarely fines any company more than $25,000, though it's authorized to collect a maximum of $175,000 per violation. Some fines are as little as $250, and most settlements are substantially lower than the agency had first proposed.

3 Injured During Gas Explosion, Fire In South Philadelphia 30 Jan 2014 A suspected gas explosion at a South Philadelphia row home sent three people to the hospital Thursday night. It happened on the 1800 block of South Bancroft Street. A Philadelphia Gas Works (PGW) spokeswoman says crews responded at about 5:30 p.m. Thursday because of the smell of gas.

Mayor Ford: 'I had nothing to do with' Anthony Smith's murder

Mayor Ford: 'I had nothing to do with' Anthony Smith's murder 29 Jan 2014 Mayor Rob Ford insists he has no connection to the Anthony Smith killing and is growing "tired" of innuendos suggesting otherwise. Same goes for media questions sent to the mayor's office asking whether he was involved in having former football players he coached assault his sister's ex-boyfriend inside the Toronto West Detention Centre. "It pisses me off," Ford said of tweets, questions and gossip.

Sandra Fluke 'Strongly Considering' Run for Henry Waxman's Seat in Congress 30 Jan 2014 Sandra Fluke, the former Georgetown University Law student who became a national figure after conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh called her a "slut," said Thursday that she is considering a run for Rep. Henry Waxman's (D-Calif.) seat in the House of Representatives. Waxman announced Thursday that he will retire at the end of this session after 20 terms in Congress.

Lunches seized from kids in debt at Salt Lake City elementary

Lunches seized from kids in debt at Salt Lake City elementary --School officials cite unpaid balances on students' meal accounts. 30 Jan 2014 Up to 40 kids at Uintah Elementary in Salt Lake City picked up their lunches Tuesday, then watched as the meals were taken and thrown away because of outstanding balances on their accounts -- a move that shocked and angered parents. "It was pretty traumatic and humiliating," said Erica Lukes, whose 11-year-old daughter had her cafeteria lunch taken from her as she stood in line Tuesday at Uintah Elementary School, 1571 E. 1300 South. The 'child-nutrition' manager [aka needs-to-be-fired sociopath] visited the school and decided to withhold lunches to deal with the issue, said Jason Olsen, a Salt Lake City District spokesman.

Feds to seek death penalty against accused Boston bomber Tsarnaev

Feds to seek death penalty against accused Boston bomber Tsarnaev 30 Jan 2014 The Justice Department said Thursday that it plans to seek the death penalty against accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Tsarnaev is awaiting trial on charges that he and his brother built and planted two pressure-cooker bombs that killed three people and injured at least 260 others at the marathon last April. Legal experts have said that seeking the death penalty against Tsarnaev would give him an incentive to plead guilty to avoid being put to death. [Right, the US needs Tsarnaev to plead guilty to stop the truth from emerging: military contractors carried out the bombings (for one, their backpacks matched those in the FBI's pictures, not the Tsarnaev brothers') in another false flag.]

Waxman, leading liberal, to retire from U.S. Congress --Championed legislation on combating climate change global warming 30 Jan 2014 Democratic U.S. Representative Henry Waxman of California, a leading liberal who helped craft President Barack Obama's landmark healthcare overhaul, said on Thursday he would retire from Congress at the end of this year.

His career in politics included efforts to promote clean air, strengthen food safety laws, improve AIDS initiatives, bolster healthcare for the poor, lower drug prices and crack down on the tobacco industry.

U.S. intelligence director calls on Snowden to return NSA documents [LOL!] 29 Jan 2014 The nation's spy chief called on former intelligence contractor Edward Snowden to return a massive trove of classified documents on Wednesday during a congressional hearing on security threats that was dominated by heated exchanges over that security breach and the surveillance programs subsequently exposed...

Clapper Jr. focused his opening remarks on Snowden, delivering a blistering stream of criticism in which he described the former contractor for the National Security Agency as a hypocrite who has severely undermined U.S. security.

Snowden Docs: U.S. Spied on Negotiators at 2009 Climate Summit 29 Jan 2014 The National Security Agency monitored the communications of other governments ahead of and during the 2009 United Nations climate negotiations in Copenhagen, Denmark, according to the latest document from whistleblower Edward Snowden. The document, with portions marked "top secret," indicates that the NSA was monitoring the communications of other countries ahead of the conference, and intended to continue doing so throughout the meeting. The Huffington Post published the documents Wednesday night in coordination with the Danish daily newspaper Information, which worked with American journalist Laura Poitras.

Deadly ice storm turns Atlanta into parking lot, strands thousands

Deadly ice storm turns Atlanta into parking lot, strands thousands 29 Jan 2014 A rare ice storm turned Atlanta into a slippery mess on Wednesday, stranding thousands for hours on frozen roadways and raising questions about how city leaders prepared for and handled the cold snap that slammed the U.S. South. The storm, which has killed at least seven people, on Tuesday swept over a region of about 60 million largely unaccustomed to ice and snow - stretching from Texas through Georgia and into the Carolinas - and forecasts called for more freezing weather on Thursday. Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed came under fire for his response to a storm that trapped hundreds of children in schools overnight, some without provisions, and created traffic jams stretching for miles on roads coated with two inches of snow.

DNI's Clapper Suggests Journalists Could Be Edward Snowden's 'Accomplices'

DNI's Clapper Suggests Journalists Could Be Edward Snowden's 'Accomplices' 29 Jan 2014 Director of National Intelligence James Clapper urged former NSA contractor Edward Snowden and his "accomplices" to return leaked documents during a hearing on Wednesday. "Snowden claims that he's won and that his mission is accomplished," Clapper said, according to a transcript from the Senate Intelligence Committee hearing, posted by the Washington Post. "If that is so, I call on him and his accomplices to facilitate the return of the remaining stolen documents that have not yet been exposed, to prevent even more damage to U.S. security." So who, exactly, are Snowden's "accomplices?" HuffPost put the question to the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, which didn't rule out that journalists could be considered "accomplices."

Snowden gets Nobel Peace Prize nomination as U.S. pursues trial

Snowden gets Nobel Peace Prize nomination as U.S. pursues trial 29 Jan 2014 President Barack Obama wants to see Edward Snowden clapped in irons and bound to the U.S. for a criminal trial. Two Norwegian politicians have a different fate in mind for Snowden: the Nobel Peace Prize. Norwegian parliamentarians Snorre Valen and Baard Vegar Solhjell nominated Snowden for the award -- the same honor Obama himself [insanely] won in 2009 -- for his disclosures about National Security Agency spying. The idea that the Nobel committee would bestow its most prestigious prize on a man some in the United States consider a traitor drew a dismissive response from a White House official, who said Snowden instead should be tried as a felon.

Fukushima ice wall: TEPCO drills freeze wells to stop contaminated groundwater

Fukushima ice wall: TEPCO drills freeze wells to stop contaminated groundwater 29 Jan 2014 The operator of the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant is erecting an underground wall of frozen soil, which would hopefully stop radioactive water from running into the sea. However, doubts remain over whether it will fix the leak problem. Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) pours tons of water into damaged reactors to keep the melted fuel from overheating. But the buildings, which were damaged in March 2011 and the consequent disaster at the plant, are allowing radioactive material to seep into groundwater and pollute the nearby sea.

Edward Snowden nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

Edward Snowden nominated for Nobel Peace Prize 29 Nov 2014 Two Norwegian politicians say they have jointly nominated the former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden for the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize. The Socialist Left party politicians Baard Vegar Solhjell, a former environment minister, and Snorre Valen said the public debate and policy changes in the wake of Snowden's whistleblowing had "contributed to a more stable and peaceful world order". Being nominated means Snowden will be one of scores of names that the Nobel committee will consider for the prestigious award.

NYPD Plans High Security on Super Bowl Blvd

NYPD Plans High Security on Super Bowl Blvd 28 Jan 2014 The NYPD will have a laser focus on the pop-up Super Bowl theme park set up in the heart of Midtown this week -- flooding the area with nearly as many cops as on New Year's Eve, law-enforcement sources said. Although there are not expected to be restrictions on backpacks along the boulevard, cops will be using radiation-detecting helicopters, K-9 teams, and elite, heavily armed Hercules squads to monitor the crowds, sources said... In addition, the Joint Terrorism Task Force, which includes the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security, will be joining the security pack.
