300 tons of highly radioactive water leak from Fukushima plant

Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) said Tuesday that at least 300 tons of highly radioactive water leaked from one of the storage tanks at Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, the worst leakage yet from the tanks.

TEPCO found the leakage on Monday as water level in one of the tanks has lowered by about 2.9 meters. The 11-meter-high tank contained about 1,000 tons of water before and an estimated 300 tons of water is thought to have leaked.

The company detected about 80 million becquerels per liter of radioactive substances emitting beta ray, such as strontium-90.

Masayuki Ono, spokesman of TEPCO, told a press conference Tuesday that the leakage is continuing and leaked water has most likely seeped into ground but not run into the sea.

Ignore fracking protests, UK government tells local authorities

Planning authorities have been banned from considering whether renewable energy plants would be a better fit for their communities, if they receive an application for a fracking mine.

Documents released by the government stress that local authorities should instead recognise that "mineral extraction is essential to local and national economies". This is despite a Department for Communities and Local Government document highlighting 16 environmental risks linked to the process, including seismic shocks and the appearance of radioactive surface water.

Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is the process of drilling and then injecting fluid into the ground at high pressure to fracture shale rocks to release natural gas. Critics point to a series of environmental disasters in America linked to fracking as a reason to instead concentrate on renewable energy.

Comment: We sort of agree with the British government in this instance. Ignore the anti-fracking movement. In fact, ignore all environmentalist movements. They are riddled with police informants and are often set up by the British government in the first place to distract and separate people into manageable units.

If you are going to protest, protest as one voice against ALL government corruption in ALL forms. The only thing they will listen to is a united front, although even then be warned they are prepared to go to extremely violent lengths to defend their privileges, as we're currently seeing in Egypt.

"Overpasses For Obama's Impeachment" protesters arrested on St. Charles overpass and forced to breath police car's toxic exhaust fumes

The arrest Saturday afternoon of two anti-Barack Obama protesters on an Interstate 70 overpass is stirring controversy - fueled by a video of the incident circulating on the internet.


The two - Marc S. Messmer, 41, of St. Charles, and Jimmy D. "Duane" Weed, 57, of Bridgeton - say that their constitutional rights were violated.

"Citizens have a right to peaceably assemble," said Messmer, who was part of a series of overpass demonstrations around the country seeking the president's impeachment. "We were simply doing that. There were no laws broken."

Sgt. Al Nothum, a spokesman for the Missouri Highway Patrol, said the potential for a traffic hazard was why the two and 10 or so other protesters were told by officers to leave the Fairgrounds Road overpass about 2 p.m.

The two were arrested, he said, for failing to obey. Nothum said the patrol wants charges filed but prosecutors have yet to decide. The patrol also wants Messmer to be charged with resisting arrest.

Comment: If you still think you have Civil Liberties in America, you haven't tried to exercise them lately.

The Real Bashar Al-Assad

Image
I am tired of reading nothing but horrific things about this man, Bashar al Assad. The international Jew-owned media have made it impossible to find anything positive about him. In fact, when Vogue Magazine did a positive special on Asma, his lovely wife, they were called to task for their work. However, the article has almost completely disappeared and there are now public apologies from the magazine for its positive zeal for "the rose of the desert" and her husband. So here I present quotes from various luminaries and leaders around the world about Bashar Al-Assad.

lf you look at the eyes of this man you do not see the tyrant described by the lying Zionist media. I see a man I would be proud to call a friend.

Some of them come from people now sworn to defame him, before Syria became the focus of extreme NATO intervention a few years ago... with so much more NATO horror to come. One thing you will see is that this man is another leader who, just by being what he is, strikes fear and loathing in the hearts of his enemies who are, to all intents and purposes, also the enemies of humankind in general.

'Pious' astrologer's dark side shocks South Indian folks

For residents of BV Colony in Vyasarpadi, the name Aravazhi Siddhar stood for an extremely religious man, until he was recently arrested for abusing a 14-year-old girl and forcing her into prostitution in connivance with her mother.

The agony faced by the young girl, who had escaped to Tirupati in Andhra Pradesh and was selling mangoes to escape from the hands of her tormentors, may have come as a rude shock for many in the city, but for those in BV Colony, what is more shocking is the dark side of their 'Siddhar'.

"He always wore saffron dhoti and his appearance used to be pious. Even though he was known as an astrologer, he was reputed for his special poojas.

We always called him Siddhar and no one knew what his actual name was," said Kamaraj, a local resident and his regular patron.

According to the CB-CID officials, it was the astrologer, who first abused the minor girl and later referred her to two women pimps who started regularly forcing her into flesh trade after administering narcotics.

"It is surprising how such incidents took place without raising any suspicion in this thickly populated area. My house is just adjacent to the hut and even if there is any minor commotion, it can't go unnoticed," said a neighbour of the astrologer.

Siddhar was residing in the same hut for last 15 years. The interiors of the hut resembled like a mini "ashram" as locals refer to this hut.

Unemployment rates up in most US states in July

unemployment US
More than half of US states had an increase in their unemployment rates in July, reflecting slow economic growth and a frustratingly weak job market.

Unemployment rate rose in 28 states and the District of Columbia, the Labor Department said on Monday.

The largest increase in unemployment occurred in New Jersey, which lost 11,800 jobs last month. At 9.5 percent, Nevada continues to have the highest unemployment rate of any US state.

Employers have been adding jobs, but the pace has not been fast enough for the 11.5 million Americans who want a job, but they cannot find one.

The Butler ruled this past weekend with a $25 million opening, a surprising amount for the new civil rights drama.

Weirdly, according to a moviegoer at the Regal Cinemas in Silver Spring, Maryland, the theater had police and armed security guards during showings of The Butler (video below).

Twitter user "Tiffany Flowers" (pictured) tweeted that The Butler audience had their movie tickets checked twice, armed policemen were stationed inside the theater and armed guards were inside the screening room, notes Mediaite.com.

Flowers tweeted:
"Then as soon as we enter the theater we were greeted by an actual police officer who herded traffic in one direction. @RegalMovies."

Comment: Wow, this is surely unprecedented in the current era!?

Let's take a glimpse at what has gotten the U.S. govt paranoid enough to do this:

Mexican security forces have discovered 23 bodies in two neighboring states in the country's west where a fierce tug of war rages on between major drug cartels, officials say.

According to a statement released by state prosecutor in Michoacan on Sunday, nine bodies linked to the Knights Templar cartel were found near the town of Buenavista Tomatlan close to the Jalisco state border.

Michoacan is one of the country's poorest states and is home to traditional drug routes. It is also a major hub for the production of methamphetamine in Mexico.

"It appears we will be in the range of an estimated 5,000 people today [Monday]," AFP quoted Peter Kessler, a spokesman for UNHCR, as saying.


"That takes the estimated number to more than 30,000" since Thursday, he said.

The US Air Force says that a B-1 bomber has crashed in a remote area of southeastern Montana, but all of the crew escaped with some injuries.

"We are actively working to ensure the safety of the crew members and have sent first responders to secure the scene and work closely with local authorities at the crash site," Col. Kevin Kennedy, commander of the 28th Bomb Wing, said in a statement on Monday.

Two pilots and two weapons system officers ejected from the bomber before the crash near Broadus, Montana, Kennedy added.
