April 12, 2011 by legitgov

Japan raises nuclear alert level to seven --Fukushima Daiichi power plant emergency now on par with 1986 Chernobyl warning 11 Apr 2011 Japan is to raise the nuclear alert level at the Fukushima Daiichi power plant to a maximum seven, putting the emergency on a par with the 1986 Chernobyl disaster. The government came under pressure to raise the level at the plant after Japan's nuclear safety commission estimated the amount of radioactive material released from its stricken reactors reached 10,000 terabecquerels per hour for several hours following the earthquake and tsunami that devastated the country's northeast coast on 11 March. That level of radiation constitutes a major accident, according to the INES scale.

Mega barf alert! Food fascism implemented to over-fund agri-terrorists who provide 'food' to schools: Chicago school bans homemade lunches, the latest in national food fight 11 Apr 2011 Students who attend Chicago's Little Village Academy public school get nothing but nutritional tough love during their lunch period each day.

Supreme Court declines to clarify rights of Guantanamo Bay prisoners 10 Apr 2011 The bottom line is that while Guantanamo’s population has declined from around 270 at the time of the decision to 172 today because of decisions of the executive branch, not a single release has come as the direct result of a judicial order. A string of rulings has gone against the detainees prisoners... The Obama administration has fought all attempts by lawyers for prisoners to have the Supreme Court review those rulings... The court last week turned away three detainee challenges arising from Boumediene v. Bush.

Forcing the F.A.A. to Fly Blind By William J. McGee 10 Apr 2011 on the very day that Southwest's Flight 812 was diverted to Yuma, Ariz., for an emergency landing, the House of Representatives passed a bill likely to make it more difficult to detect and prevent midair ruptures, metal fatigue and other serious flight risks. The bill would cut $4 billion from the Federal Aviation Administration’s $37 billion budget... Such streamlining would probably mean reduction of F.A.A. staff, including safety inspectors.

April 10, 2011 by legitgov

Tepco Says Water Level Rises in Fukushima No. 2 Reactor 09 Apr 2011 Tokyo Electric Power Co. said the water level rose in a trench at the No. 2 reactor at its Fukushima Dai-Ichi plant, adding to concern the utility may have to speed up transfer of the radioactive fluid to a waste-treatment facility and tanks.

The House of Representatives followed suit early Saturday morning.

Police seek suspect in blast near Santa Monica synagogue

April 10, 2011 by legitgov

Police seek suspect in blast near Santa Monica synagogue 09 Apr 2011 A blast outside a Los Angeles-area synagogue this week was caused by an explosive device and police on Saturday were looking for a suspect, authorities said. The explosion on Thursday near the Chabad House in the Los Angeles suburb of Santa Monica injured no one and was blamed by police that day on a mechanical failure. The blast sent a pipe hurtling through the air and crashing onto an apartment building next to the synagogue.

Santa Monica synagogue explosion caused by unusual type of device, authorities say

April 10, 2011 by legitgov

Santa Monica synagogue explosion caused by unusual type of device, authorities say 09 Apr 2011 First it was believed to be a bomb, then it was dismissed as a freak industrial accident, and now authorities are again saying that the explosion last week near a Santa Monica synagogue was, most likely, deliberately planned. Part of the confusion, authorities say, was connected to the device itself: An explosive layered under hundreds of pounds of concrete poured into a trash bin is not something bomb technicians typically encounter. Thursday's blast sent a 300-pound metal pipe encased in concrete crashing through the roof of a home next door to Chabad House on 17th Street, near Broadway.

House Votes Against 'Net Neutrality'

April 10, 2011 by legitgov

House Votes Against 'Net Neutrality' 09 Apr 2011 The GOP-controlled House of Representatives approved a measure on Friday that would prohibit the Federal Communications Commission from regulating how Internet service providers manage their broadband networks, potentially overturning a central initiative of the F.C.C. chairman, Julius Genachowski. The action, which is less likely to pass the Senate and which President Obama has threatened to veto, is nevertheless significant because it puts half of the legislative branch on the same side of the debate as the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia in restricting the F.C.C.'s authority over Internet service.
