Cell Phone Stuff

Stupid News

 Most iPhone owners say they couldn’t do without the gadget, and quite a few would sooner give up sex, according to a new survey.

June 29, Electronics trade-in site Gazelle polled more than 1,000 customers who have traded in at least one iPhone.
It found that 65 percent said the iPhone was the device or platform they would not be able to live without, compared with just 1 percent opting for Facebook.
But the juicy stat is that nearly 15 percent of respondents said they’d rather give up sex than go for even a weekend without their iPhone. And nearly 4 percent of reported having used their iPhone during sex. Keep that up and you won’t have to choose between sex and the iPhone for long.   Read More

Serious News

Cell phones are ubiquitous.  Every poor African living in a mud hut carries a cell phone as do the “poorest of the poor” in India and third world countries.  People on many public assistance programs in the United States qualify for free cell phones through a government subsidy to a company called Assurance Wireless.

Japan Govt Prepares to Flee Tokyo

Tokyo, the capital of Japan, is 137 miles south of Fukushima Prefecture, wherein lies the damaged Daiichi nuclear plant.
Mark Willacy of the Australia’s ABCNews reports on August 9, 2011:

Japan is considering the possibility of creating a back-up capital city in case a major natural disaster, like the March 11 earthquake, strikes Tokyo.

A new panel from Japan’s Ministry of Land and Infrastructure will consider the possibility of moving some of Tokyo’s capital functions to another big city, like Osaka.

Japan is located on the junction of four tectonic plates and experiences one-fifth of the world’s strongest earthquakes and geologists have warned Tokyo is particularly vulnerable to powerful earthquakes.

It is feared if a massive earthquake like the March magnitude 9.0 quake struck Tokyo, it could destroy the country’s political and economic base.

So how many of you believe this cover story?
Or maybe, just maybe, the Japanese government knows something it’s not telling, about the radiation leaking from the damaged reactors of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant? Afterall, didn’t the government admit — three months after the earthquake-tsunami that damaged the reactors — that the damage was worse than first said?

TSA Agents Getting Cancer from Full-Body Scanners

A TSA agent pats down a terrorist, aka little old lady

Mike Adams of Natural News reports, June 28, 2011 that documents obtained by the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) reveal “cancer clusters” are reported among TSA employees who work near the controversial full-body scanners.
At the same time, the Department of Homeland Security refuses to issue dosimeters to TSA agents because, obviously, those dosimeters would indicate alarming levels of radiation exposure.
Why are the body scanners causing cancer clusters among TSA employees?
As Natural News reported, DHS Director Janet Napolitano had lied about the safety of the devices, claiming that the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) had “affirmed the safety” of them. But NIST fired back an email stating that NIST doesn’t test the safety of products at all! Ever! Therefore, all the claims that these devices were tested and confirmed as safe was complete B.S. from Napolitano. Just an outright lie.
Even though the NIST did not test the safety of these machines, it did warn airport screeners to avoid standing next to them because the machines clearly emitted doses of radiation that could mutate DNA and cause cancer.
Read the FOIA documents, the cover-ups, the lies and more at the EPIC website, here.

Wikipedia says that full-body scanners utilize two types of technology:

  • The millimeter wave scanner that reflects extremely high frequency radio waves off the body to make an image on which one can see some types of objects hidden under the clothes. Passive millimeter wave screening is known to be safe because its technology does not require radiating the subject.
  • The backscatter X-ray, which utilizes radiation, “the true long-term health effects of the active, radiating technologies are unknown.”

Updates on Los Alamos & Fort Calhoun, June 30th

Los Alamos fire

Los Alamos Nuclear Lab

As of 12:40 p.m., June 28, 2011:

  • No wildfire currently on Los Alamos Nuclear Laboratory (LANL) property.
  • A network of 7 high-volume air samplers along the southern, northern and eastern boundaries of Lab property indicate no radioactive materials from Lab operations or legacy waste in smoke from the Las Conchas fire.
  • Lab will remain closed through Friday, July 1, because of risks presented by the Las Conchas Fire and the mandatory evacuation of Los Alamos town site.
  • More alarming is that the Associated Press reports that LANL is storing “as many as 30,000 drums of plutonium-contaminated waste in fabric tents above ground.Peter Stockton, a senior investigator for the independent watchdog Project on Government Oversight (POGO) says: “They talked about getting it out of there, but they simply haven’t. They [should] store it at WIPP (Waste Isolation Pilot Plant) in southern New Mexico, an underground storage facility for low-level waste.  But again, now they claim these barrels can stand up to tests of fire.” (H/t Joseph)

Fort Calhoun Nuclear Power Plant

  • Fort Calhoun Nuclear Station, 19 miles north of Omaha, has been taken offline because of the flooding. The river surrounds the plant to a depth of about two feet.
  • About 70 miles south of Omaha, Cooper Nuclear Station remains online. On Thursday, the river was about three feet below the level that would require the plant to shut down.
  • Today, the regional office of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission that oversees Nebraska sent an official request to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, asking what would happen if a dam fails upstream of Fort Calhoun and Cooper nuclear power plants. Combined, the six U.S. Army Corps of Engineers dams on the flood-swollen Missouri River comprise one of the largest reservoir systems in the country. The dams are releasing historic amounts of water during what will be a summer of managed flooding in the Missouri River valley. John Bertino, head of dam safety for the Omaha district, said that although the dams have had some issues, it’s nothing that affects their integrity. “They’re performing really well,” Bertino said Thursday morning. “We don’t see any concerns.” Still, the corps is monitoring the dams 24/7, with both engineers and electronic surveillance.

Rumor: Nebraska’s nuclear power plants store spent fuel rods in open casks. If the Missouri River rises high enough, it will overflow them and carry contaminated water downstream.

Fact: The plants both use outdoor, above-ground entombment, also called dry cask storage, for its oldest fuel. The fuel is entombed in steel canisters that have been welded shut. These canisters are then placed inside concrete bunkers that rely on outside air flowing around the canisters to carry away residual heat. The bunker and canisters are built to withstand flooding. Elevated indoor pools are used for the most recently used fuel rods. At the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Station, the river would have to rise another 32.18 feet to flow over the top of the pool deck. At the Brownville plant, the river would have to rise approximately 102 feet.

Massive Radiation Cloud Coming to North America?

The mainstream news media have lost interest in Japan’s ongoing nuclear disaster, but that doesn’t mean things are better. On the contrary, matters are getting worse. The situation at the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant in Daiichi actually is worse than what Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) and the Japanese government have disclosed.
The latest news from Reuters is that Fukushima’s reactor No. 1 had a meltdown of its fuel rods and now has a hole several centimeters in diameter in its main vessel, leading to a leakage of radioactive water.
Experts now believe that at one point in the immediate wake of the disaster, the 4-metre-high stack of uranium-rich rods at the core of the reactor had been entirely exposed to the air and thus, had been spewing invisible odorless radiation. Radiation has also be seeping into the Pacific Ocean and nearby ground water from the hundreds of gallons of water that have been pumped — and are still being pumped — to cool at least 3 of the 6 reactors to bring their nuclear fuel rods to a “cold shutdown” state. Boiling water reactors like those at Fukushima rely on water as both a coolant and a barrier to radiation.
U.S. nuclear experts said that the company may have to build a concrete wall around reactor no. 1 because of the breach, and that this could now take years.
According to this alarming video, a large cloud of radiation mass is making its way across the Pacific Ocean and will hit North America in the next several days. You can also read about this in “Secret Map Shows Massive Radiation Cloud Heading Toward U.S. and Canada.”
The video refers to high levels of Caesium-137 and Xenon- 133 drifting our way.
Caesium-137 is a radioactive isotope of caesium which is formed as a fission product by nuclear fission. This is what Wikipedia says about the health risks of Caesium-137:

Caesium-137 reacts with water producing a water-soluble compound (caesium hydroxide), and the biological behavior of caesium is similar to that of potassium and rubidium. After entering the body, caesium gets more or less uniformly distributed throughout the body, with higher concentration in muscle tissues and lower in bones. The biological half-life of caesium is rather short at about 70 days. Experiments with dogs showed that a single dose of 3800 μCi/kg (approx. 44 μg/kg of caesium-137) is lethal within three weeks.

Xenon-133 (or Xe-133) is also a nuclear fission product, but via the decay of Iodine-135. As explained in Wikipedia, Iodine-135 is a fission product of uranium with a yield of about 6%. Iodine-135 has a 6.7 hour half-life and decays to Xe. Thus, in an operating nuclear reactor, Xe is being continuously produced.
I am not a medical expert and so cannot dispense advice about potassium iodide tablets, which the FDA has approved (since 1982) to protect thyroid glands from radioactive iodine emitted in nuclear accidents or fission emergencies. I suggest you read this Wikipedia article on potassium iodide or this other article for yourself. Alas, to my knowledge, potassium iodide does little, if anything, against Caesium-137 or Xenon-133.

Fukushima Radiation to Reach West Coast April 5-6th


Rainwater in California Measured 181 Times The Acceptable Limit For Drinking Water


The Intel Hub
April 3rd, 2011

Officials at UC Berkeley have tested rain water that turned out to be 181 times the limit for drinking water. This is happening at the same time that our FAKE corporate media is telling the sheeple that there is absolutely nothing to worry about.
“As shown in the graph below, published by UC Berkeley, Iodine-131 peaked at 20.1 becquerels per liter, a measure of radioactivity, on the roof of Etcheverry Hall during heavy rains a week ago. The federal maximum level of iodine-131 allowed in drinking water is 0.111 becquerels per liter,” The Bay Citizen reported Saturday.

The Norwegian Institute of Air Research is also predicting that moderate levels of radiation will hit the U.S. west coast on April 5th and 6th.

STRATFOR RED ALERT-Radiation Rising and Heading South in Japan

The nuclear reactor situation in Japan has deteriorated significantly. Two more explosions occurred at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant on March 15.
The first occurred at 6:10 a.m. local time at reactor No. 2, which had seen nuclear fuel rods exposed for several hours after dropping water levels due to mishaps in the emergency cooling efforts. Within three hours the amount of radiation at the plant rose to 163 times the previously recorded level, according to Japan’s Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency.  
Elsewhere, radiation levels were said to have reached 400 times the “annual legal limit” at reactor No. 3. Authorities differed on whether the reactor pressure vessel at reactor No. 2 was damaged after the explosion, but said the reactor’s pressure-suppression system may have been damaged possibly allowing a radiation leak. After this, a fire erupted at reactor No. 4 and was subsequently extinguished, according to Kyodo. Kyodo also reported the government has ordered a no-fly zone 30 kilometers around the reactor, and Prime Minister Naoto Kan has expanded to 30 kilometers the range within which citizens should remain indoors and warned that further leaks are possible.

Red Alert: Radiation Rising and Heading South in Japan

(click here to enlarge image)

Reports from Japanese media currently tell of rising radiation levels in the areas south and southwest of the troubled plant due to a change in wind direction toward the southwest. Ibaraki prefecture, immediately south of Fukushima, was reported to have higher than normal levels. Chiba prefecture, to the east of Tokyo and connected to the metropolitan area, saw levels reportedly two to four times above the “normal” level. Utsunomiya, Tochigi prefecture, north of Tokyo, reported radiation at 33 times the normal level measured there. Kanagawa prefecture, south of Tokyo, reported radiation at up to nine times the normal level. Finally, a higher than normal amount was reported in Tokyo. The government says radiation levels have reached levels hazardous to human health. Wind direction, temperature, and topography all play a crucial factor in the spread of radioactive materials as well as their diffusion, and wind direction is not easily predictable and constantly shifting, with reports saying it could shift west and then back eastward to sea within the next day. It is impossible to know how reliable these preliminary readings are but they suggest a dramatic worsening as well as a wider spread than at any time since the emergency began.
The Japanese government has announced a 30-kilometer no-fly zone and is expanding evacuation zones and urging the public within a wider area to remain indoors. The situation at the nuclear facility is uncertain, but clearly deteriorating. Currently, the radiation levels do not appear immediately life-threatening outside the 20-kilometer evacuation zone. But if there is a steady northerly wind, the potential for larger-scale evacuations of more populated areas may become a reality. This would present major challenges to the Japanese government. Further, the potential for panic-induced individual evacuations could trigger even greater problems for the government to manage.
Editor’s note: A previous version of this piece incorrectly stated that the fire at the No. 4 reactor took place at a facility in Daini. It also incorrectly reported the range of the government’s no-fly zone as 20 kilometers. The piece has since been corrected.

Urgent: Radiation 1,000 Times Higher


URGENT: Radiation 1,000 times higher than normal detected at nuke plant

TOKYO, March 12, Kyodo

The amount of radiation reached around 1,000 times the normal level Saturday in the control room of the No. 1 reactor of the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant, the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency said.
The discovery suggests radioactive steam could spread around the facility operated by Tokyo Electric Power Co.
