March 19, 2011 by legitgov

Tokyo Electric Says Cooling Pump Started at Fukushima Plant's No.5 Reactor 19 Mar 2011 Tokyo Electric Power Co. said it restarted the residual-heat removal pump at the No. 5 reactor of its stricken Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear plant, one of the least damaged at the facility. The utility began cooling the pool in the reactor that contains spent fuel rods, it said in a statement today. Temperatures in the pool had earlier fallen to 67.6 degrees Celsius from 68.8 degrees, Kyodo News reported. Temperatures should be kept below 25 degrees Celsius, according to international guidelines.

Allies Set Conditions on Qaddafi, Prepare for Air Strikes

March 19, 2011 by legitgov

Allies Set Conditions on Qaddafi, Prepare for Air Strikes 19 Mar 2011  Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi’s promise of an immediate cease-fire, even if implemented, falls short of the demands set by the U.S., U.K. and France to avert allied military strikes as soon as this weekend. President Barack Obama, speaking at the White House, described specific demands set in coordination with U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron and French President Nicolas Sarkozy. Qaddafi must immediately stop attacks on civilians [and leave that task to the US/UK/France], halt his advance on Benghazi, and pull back forces from three embattled cities, Ajdabiya, Misrata, and Zawiyah.

March 19, 2011 by legitgov

Shelling, air strikes on Libyan rebels in Benghazi 19 Mar 2011 Libya's rebel stronghold of Benghazi came under attack on Saturday morning, with at least two air strikes and sustained shelling of the city's south sending thick smoke into the sky. Multiple explosions could be heard from the centre of the city, as a military plane flew low overheard, and the southern skyline was dominated by plumes of black smoke. Retaliatory mortar fire sounded, and on the roads pick-up trucks mounted with machine guns could be seen, after a night in which explosions and gunfire sounded continuously.

Russia lifts ban on polar bear hunting

March 19, 2011 by legitgov

Russia lifts ban on polar bear hunting --Russia has legalised the hunting of polar bears for the first time in more than half a century, a move that critics say will put further pressure on the endangered mammal. 19 Mar 2011 Roman Kopin, the governor of Russia's remote Chukotka region, signed a decree allowing the area's indigenous people to hunt and kill 29 polar bears each year, including 19 females. Russian wildlife campaigners condemned the move, saying the polar bear was already threatened by a shrinking habitat and rampant poaching. Varvara Semonova, a wildlife campaigner, said the decision would "threaten the survival of the polar bear in the Russian Arctic and will have not only ecological but serious social and political consequences for us."

I suffered post-traumatic stress after being waterboarded on Ken Loach set, says actor

March 19, 2011 by legitgov

I suffered post-traumatic stress after being waterboarded on Ken Loach set, says actor 18 Mar 20110 A former paratrooper claims he suffered sustained panic attacks and post-traumatic stress after being waterboarded for a scene in a new film ['Route Irish'] by Ken Loach. Trevor Williams said he was strapped to a bench press, had his feet elevated, hands tied and face covered with a rag while experiencing "simulated drowning" for a total of 80 seconds, halting only when he gave small thumb signals to the crew... Loach maintained that the scene was aimed at highlighting the "disgusting" practice of torture which George Bush described in his memoir, Decision Points, as "simulated drowning".

UN says nuclear fuel was in fire area at reactor

March 19, 2011 by legitgov

UN says nuclear fuel was in fire area at reactor 18 Mar 2011 The U.N. nuclear agency says all the fuel from a reactor at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Japan was transferred last November to the spent fuel pool where a fire broke out Tuesday. The International Atomic Energy Agency said Wednesday the transfer occurred when Unit 4, one of six reactors, had routine maintenance on Nov. 30. The fire in Unit 4's fuel storage pond, an area where used nuclear fuel is cooled, caused the release of radioactivity into the atmosphere.

Obama warns of military action against Kadhafi

March 18, 2011 by legitgov

Obama warns of military action against Kadhafi 18 Mar 2011 President Barack Obama Friday delivered a frank ultimatum to Moamer Kadhafi, threatening military action if he ignores non-negotiable demands for a ceasefire and a retreat from rebel bastions. The US warning was immediately backed by France, Britain and Arab nations which have driven demands for a no-fly zone and other measures, now enshrined in a UN resolution mandating action. The US president made dramatic and forceful on-camera demands of Kadhafi, saying the world could not stand by because, if left unchecked, Kadhafi would commit atrocities in which thousands would die. [Right, and only the US and/or its bribed poodle nations are allowed to do that.]

March 18, 2011 by legitgov

Wisconsin judge halts state budget law curbing unions' power 18 Mar 2011 A Wisconsin judge issued a temporary restraining order Friday halting the state's controversial budget repair law that curbs the union power of most public employees, the Dane County district attorney's office said. Gov. Scott Walker, who championed the measure and signed it into law last week, said he was confident the initiative would eventually prevail in the court system, a spokeswoman said. The ruling by Dane County Judge Maryann Sumi came in response to a lawsuit filed by District Attorney Ismael Ozanne, charging such a violation of the law.

Israel threatens 'military action' if Iran refuses to stop nuclear programme --Israeli PM said Iran has enough material for almost three nuclear bombs 18 Mar 2011 Israel's Prime Minister said the world must make clear that Iran would face 'credible military action' if sanctions do not shut down Tehran's disputed nuclear program. Benjamin Netanyahu's warning comes as Malaysian police found equipment they suspect could be used to make nuclear weapons smuggled on board a ship headed to Iran. Mr Netanyahu said this week it was clear Iran was pursuing its nuclear ambitions despite international sanctions and had enough material for almost three nuclear bombs. [WHY is it fine and dandly for *other* nations to have nuclear power?]

Japan raises threat level for nuclear crisis

March 18, 2011 by legitgov

Japan raises threat level for nuclear crisis --Japanese officials raised the severity level of the accident because the scope of the disaster has spread beyond Japan. 18 Mar 2011 The threat level of the nuclear crisis in Japan has increased from 4 to 5 on a 7-level international scale. The Japanese government is now acknowledging it has been overwhelmed by the scale of the twin disasters that hit the country, which has slowed its response to the nuclear crisis. It's also now welcoming U.S. help to stabilize the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant. Damage to the facility is extensive after several explosions.

Radiation tests begin throughout US airports

March 18, 2011 by legitgov

Radiation tests begin throughout US airports 18 Mar 2011 Travelers arriving from Japan may not know it, but U.S. customs agents are on alert for passengers coming into the country with high levels of radiation. It's routine protocol for agents at all ports of entry to screen for radiation with personal radiation devices, but now Homeland Security is directing agents to be more watchful. "In an exercise of caution, and just to make sure everyone remains safe, we are doing screenings of passengers and cargo," said Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano. "If there happens to be a blip in terms of radiation."

Engineers consider burying Fukushima to block radiation

March 18, 2011 by legitgov

Engineers consider burying Fukushima to block radiation 18 Mar 2011 Japanese engineers conceded on Friday that burying a crippled nuclear reactor in sand and concrete may be the only way to prevent a catastrophic radiation leak, the method used to seal huge leakages from Chernobyl in 1986. Officials said they still hoped to fix a power cable to at least two reactors to restart water pumps needed to cool overheating nuclear fuel rods. Workers also sprayed water on the No.3 reactor, one of the most critical of the plant's six.

Nissan scanning vehicles for radioactive material 18 Mar 2011 Nissan has started scanning vehicles made in Japan for traces of radioactive material, a company official said Friday. Simon Sproule, corporate vice president of marketing for Nissan Motor Company, said the monitoring began this week. Sources inside the company said there is virtually no risk of contamination from a car and no potential health risk to customers, but testing began because of public concern.

Japan seeks US nuclear crisis help

March 18, 2011 by legitgov

Japan seeks US nuclear crisis help 18 Mar 2011 Japan has asked the US for help in reining in the crisis at its dangerously overheated nuclear complex, while the UN atomic energy chief called the disaster a race against the clock that demands global cooperation. At the stricken complex, military fire trucks began spraying the troubled reactor units once more with tons of water in an attempt to prevent meltdowns that could spew dangerous levels of radiation.

Greater Danger Lies in Spent Fuel Than in Reactors

March 18, 2011 by legitgov

Greater Danger Lies in Spent Fuel Than in Reactors --Electric utility: 11,125 spent fuel rod assemblies were stored at site, about four times as much radioactive material as in reactor cores combined 18 Mar 2011 Years of procrastination in deciding on long-term disposal of highly radioactive fuel rods from nuclear reactors are now coming back to haunt Japanese authorities as they try to control fires and explosions at the stricken Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station. Japan, like the United States, has kept ever-larger numbers of spent fuel rods in temporary storage pools at the power plants, where they can be guarded with the same security provided for the plants. Figures provided by Tokyo Electric Power on Thursday show that most of the dangerous uranium at the power plant is actually in the spent fuel rods, not the reactor cores themselves.

U.S. nuclear officials suspect Japanese plant has dire breach

March 18, 2011 by legitgov

U.S. nuclear officials suspect Japanese plant has dire breach 18 Mar 2011 U.S. government nuclear experts believe a spent fuel pool at Japan's crippled Fukushima reactor complex has a breach in the wall or floor, a situation that creates a major obstacle to refilling the pool with cooling water and keeping dangerous levels of radiation from escaping. That assessment by U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission officials is based on the sequence of events since the earthquake and information provided by key U.S. contractors who were in the plant at the time, said government officials familiar with the evaluation. It was compelling evidence, they said, that the wall of the No. 4 reactor pool has a significant hole or crack.

Pentagon buys social networking 'spy software' --'Personas must be able to appear to originate in nearly any part of the world,' the documents stated. 17 Mar 2011 The Pentagon has purchased a pioneering software programme that creates fake identities on social media websites, in an attempt to infiltrate and influence suspected terrorists and extremists overseas. The $2.7 million (£1.7 million) programme developed by San Diego firm Ntrepid allows one military user to create multiple personas on the internet and engage in extended online conversations and communications with suspects.

Navy stops moving sailors to Japan

March 18, 2011 by legitgov

Navy stops moving sailors to Japan 17 Mar 2011 As the situation at the damaged Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant worsens, the Navy has stopped sending personnel to Japan indefinitely, according to a naval administrative message released Thursday. It’s a move that comes as the White House urged Americans to stay at least 50 miles away from the plant, and authorized military dependents and families of other U.S. government employees to relocate from northeastern Japan.

U.S. to evacuate Americans out of Japan

March 18, 2011 by legitgov

U.S. to evacuate Americans out of Japan --Voluntary evacuation offered to family members and dependents of U.S. personnel 17 Mar 2011 The United States has authorized the first evacuations of Americans out of Japan, taking a tougher stand on the deepening nuclear crisis and warning U.S. citizens to defer all non-essential travel to any part of the country as unpredictable weather and wind conditions risked spreading radioactive contamination. Passengers and cargo arriving from Japan are being screened for radiation “in an exercise of caution,” Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Thursday. She said no harmful levels of radiation had been detected.

Fear of radiation sickness near Fukushima plant

March 17, 2011 by legitgov

Fear of radiation sickness near Fukushima plant 16 Mar 2011 Concerns about radiation sickness in Japan are focused on the area within 20 miles of the quake-struck Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex. If the worst happens -- a full core meltdown and a large release of radiation -- people living within hundreds of miles of the plant could have a somewhat higher risk of developing cancer in coming decades. Experts say the risks depend on how much radiation is released, how much people are exposed to and over how long a period, and how the winds blow.

UNSC orders no-fly zone over Libya

March 17, 2011 by legitgov

UNSC orders no-fly zone over Libya 17 Mar 2011 The United Nations Security Council has passed a resolution ordering a no-fly zone over Libya, while suspending the country from the Human Rights Council. Resolution 1970 authorizes a no-fly zone over Libya and to allow "all necessary measures" to be taken "to protect civilians and civilian populated areas under threat of attack in (Libya), including Benghazi, while excluding an occupation force," Reuters reported on Thursday. It allows for airstrikes to halt Gaddafi's offensive against the revolutionary forces in Libya.

Radiation Plume Headed to California From Japan

March 17, 2011 by legitgov

Radiation Plume Headed to California From Japan 17 Mar 2011 The United Nations is forecasting a possible radioactive plume coming across the Pacific Ocean and arriving in California Friday, according to the New York Times. While health and nuclear experts say the plume will dilute as it moves east, there will be hints of radiation. The island of Japan is more than 5,000 away from the California coastline.

Obama says does not expect harmful radiation to reach U.S.

March 17, 2011 by legitgov

Obama says does not expect harmful radiation to reach U.S. 18 Mar 2011 U.S. President Barack Obama said on Thursday that he does not expect harmful radiation sparked by the crippled Japanese nuclear plant will reach the U.S., including its West Coast and Hawaii. "We do not expect harmful levels of radiation to reach the United States, whether it's the West Coast, Hawaii, Alaska or U.S. territories in the Pacific," he said in a prepared speech at the White House. Obama said right now the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and public health experts do not recommend that people in the United States take precautionary measures beyond staying informed.

U.S. radiation experts try to decipher reports from Japan

March 17, 2011 by legitgov

U.S. radiation experts try to decipher reports from Japan 17 Mar 2011 The Japanese government's radiation report for the country's 47 prefectures Wednesday had a notable omission: Fukushima, ground zero in Japan's nuclear crisis. Measurements from Ibaraki, just south of Fukushima, were also blanked out. Radiation experts in the USA say that the lack of information about radioactivity released from the smoldering reactors makes it impossible to gauge the current danger, project how bad a potential meltdown might be or calculate how much fallout might reach the USA.
