    I know this grapevine -

    Someone had a dream about an attack, and the U.S. is the next place, which could lead to war, and he has a really strong psychic hit from it.

    Cattle farmers in Fukushima area.

    Post  HolyGuacamole on Sat Apr 16, 2011 1:03 am

    Dear Moderator, I have made a mistake in posting this on another thread “Magnitude 9.1…”, but this is the post that I wanted to reply to so everyone can understand the FACTS regarding the cattle farmers in Fukushima and not just ASSUMPTIONS made by some of the members here.

    Here is my post:

    I do not ever comment on this site, but I have read some disgustingly ignorant comments regarding cattle farmers in Fukushima, and I was compelled to write here and set some facts straight.

    First of all, farmers in Fukushima area are NOT ABANDONING their cattle.

    I do not know how such an ignorant, one-sided journalist even made it as a journalist, but farmers have been staying in their barn tending for their cattle regardless of the government's advisory of staying indoors. Farmers may even be forced to abandon their cattle, meaning--if you can read between the lines--they have not abandoned them, and they are not “running away” from them. Read for yourself:


    http://mdn.mainichi.jp/mdnnews/news/20110412p2a00m0na007000c.html


    In this YouTube link that shows Japanese news (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDXN0ydJIpQ), the farmer tending the cattle, Tadayoshi Tadano, is quoted as saying, "The cattles' lives are as worthy as my very own life." He goes on to say that the happiest moments he has as a farmer is being able to feed his cattles, keep them healthy, and to be able to milk them. But because he is unable to do this now, he says he has "no hope whatsoever" to continue living his life.

    It's so easy having a roof over your head, being able to enjoy unradiated food and water, and being able to sleep in a nice bed, all the while idly typing from a computer on your free time saying "how sad" the cattle are, how much of a “simple atrocity” it is, when you're not even there at Fukushima hauling those cows out in the midst of fatal radiation that could silently murder you--as well as your loved ones, right in front of your very own eyes--in just five years, isn't it?

    Why don't you fly yourself out to the radiated area if you think you're doing a good holy favor for the animals?

    After all, it’s just a “simple atrocity,” isn’t it?

    Know your facts before you let your fingers slide.
    It's not like it's the most basic rule in posting on MoA.

    Fuel rod fragments at bottom of vessels
    No meltdown risk if cooling efforts continue



    By KANAKO TAKAHARA
    Staff writer

    Melted fuel rod fragments have sunk to the bottoms of three reactors at the Fukushima No. 1 power plant and could theoretically burn through the pressure vessels if emergency water-pumping operations are seriously disrupted, the Atomic Energy Society of Japan said Friday.

    If too many of the melted fuel fragments puddle at the bottom, they can generate enough concentrated heat to bore a hole in the pressure vessel, which would result in a massive radioactive release to the environment..

    "It will take at least two or three months ... until the situation of fuel rods is stabilized" said Takashi Sawada, vice chairman of the nuclear body.

    The fuel rods are being cooled by tons of water that is being manually injected into the reactors and their spent-fuel pools by truck. But if those operations are interrupted for two or three days by an aftershock or other unforeseen event, the reactors' cores will again be at risk of melting down further, he said.

    The nuclear safety committee, consisting of nuclear engineers and academics, compiled the analysis based on the data disclosed by Tokyo Electric Power Co. and the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency, the government's nuclear watchdog. Earlier reports quoting experts giving the same explanation have been circulating in western media for a week.

    The fuel rods in reactors 1, 2 and 3 are heavily damaged. Pieces of the rods melted into fragments about 1 cm wide or smaller and drifted to the bottom of the pressure vessels, the committee said.

    The fuel rods in reactors 1 and 2 still seem to be partially exposed, but the entire fuel assembly at reactor 3 is believed to be safely submerged, it said.

    Meanwhile, radioactive substances have been detected in groundwater and soil on the plant's premises, giving Tepco even more problems..

    Tepco said Thursday night that the concentration of radioactive materials detected in groundwater extracted near the turbine buildings of reactors 1 and 2 jumped 17-fold in a week.

    Radioactive iodine-131 was 610 becquerels per cubic centimeter, 17 times the amount detected April 6, while cesium-134 was 7.9 becquerels, eight times the amount detected previously. Normally none would be detected.

    Tepco said toxic water may be seeping from the nearby reactor 2 turbine building, which is filled with high-level radioactive water. The utility will increase its inspections from once to three times a week.

    Tepco also said it detected a small amount of plutonium at two locations 500 meters from the No. 1 reactor. Some 0.16 becquerels per kg and 0.12 becquerels per kg of plutonium-238 were detected in soil collected between March 31 to April 4.

    The amount is the same level as those normally detected, Tepco said, suggesting there is no immediate health risk.

    The earth also contains radioactive substances that have been falling from the sky since the United States, Russia and other nuclear states carried out atmospheric atomic tests in past decades.

    As for the storage pool for spent fuel rods in reactor 4, radioactive iodine and cesium were detected in a water sample extracted Tuesday, but the amount indicated damage to the rods was "not big," NISA said.

    According to the results, 220 becquerels per cubic cm of radioactive iodine-131, 88 becquerels of cesium-134 and 93 becquerels of cesium-137 were detected, Tepco said.

    On Friday, workers continued efforts to bring the reactors under control and stop radioactive leaks, injecting more nitrogen gas into the No. 1 reactor.

    Melted fuel rod fragments have sunk to the bottoms of three reactors at the Fukushima No. 1 power plant and could theoretically burn through the pressure vessels if emergency water-pumping operations are seriously disrupted, the Atomic Energy Society of Japan said Friday.

    Japan nuclear firm aims to end crisis within nine months

    Tepco reveals two-stage process to bring Fukushima plant under control but declines to say when evacuees can return home




    Chair of Japan nuclear operator Tepco, Tsunehisa Katsumata, announces the 'cold shutdown' roadmap


    Justin McCurry in Tokyo
    Sunday 17 April 2011

    The company at the centre of Japan's nuclear crisis says it hopes to bring the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant under control in six to nine months, but cannot say when tens of thousands of people forced to evacuate the area will be able to return home.

    In the first indication of how long it will take to stabilise the plant, the Tokyo Electric Power Company [Tepco] revealed on Sunday a two-stage process it hopes will end with the safe "cold shutdown" of the stricken reactors.

    Tepco's announcement came as the US secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, arrived in Tokyo to pledge Washington's support for Japan as it recovers from the worst disaster in its postwar history.

    "Economically, diplomatically and in so many other ways, Japan is indispensable to global problem-solving," she said. "We are very confident that Japan will recover and will be a very strong economic and global player for years and decades to come."

    Clinton pledged steadfast support for Japan in the face of "a multidimensional crisis of unprecedented scope".

    Japan and the US announced the creation of a public-private partnership to spearhead reconstruction. "We wish to enhance co-operation between Japan and American businesses," Clinton said.

    Tepco officials say the two most urgent tasks are to prevent hydrogen explosions at three of the six reactors, and to secure storage for tens of thousands of tonnes of contaminated water in the turbine buildings.

    The firm has been pumping low-level radioactive water into the sea, angering neighbouring China and South Korea.

    It says it needs three months to achieve a steady reduction in radiation, and another three to six months to bring levels firmly under control.

    "We will do our utmost to curb the release of radioactive materials by achieving a stable cooling state at the reactors and spent fuel pools," Tepco's chairman, Tsunehisa Katsumata, told reporters.

    "The company has been doing its utmost to prevent a worsening of the situation. We have put together a roadmap and will put all our efforts into achieving these goals."

    The prime minister, Naoto Kan, welcomed Tepco's roadmap as "a small step forward". Earlier, he said in a newspaper editorial that last month's natural disasters and the nuclear crisis presented Japan with "a precious window of opportunity to secure the 'rebirth of Japan' ".

    Tepco says plans to stabilise the plant are subject to "various uncertainties and risks", and cannot give a time frame for the return of evacuees.

    The trade minister, Banri Kaieda, suggested some residents would be able to return as soon as the the plant was stabilised.

    But Katsumata, who admitted he was considering resigning over the crisis, said only that he hopes people will be able to return "as early as possible".

    Tepco is to monitor radiation levels in affected towns and villages once the plant is stabilised and liaise with the government about a possible lifting of the evacuation order.

    Pressure has mounted on Tepco and the government to give evacuees an idea of when they might be able to return to their homes. At the weekend, Kan was quoted as suggesting they may have to wait up to 20 years. He later insisted he had been misquoted.

    "We would like to present the facts to help the government make a judgment and provide an outlook on when evacuees can go home," Katsumata said.

    Doesn't it seem the evil control freaks are doing the same now. Their time is getting short and they are getting desparate. Destroy the world. If they can't have it, they don't want others to have it either.




    I completely agree. Even if we survive this wave of retribution - and experience a changing of the guard - we could still experience scuttling in absentia. I think we are in for some very difficult times. I don't think this transitional period has to be hard - but that it will be made hard by those who have absolutely no compassion.

    The Real Radiation Threat To The US And YOU
    By Toni Reita ND
    4-18-11

    As the jet stream continues around the world some radioactive particles will fall with rain, snow or as dust particles, before it continues it's deadly circle.

    The number of radioactive particles may diminish but the STRENGTH of each particle does not diminish.

    That means that the STRENGTH of radiation that leaves Fukushima is the same strength that reaches California or the East coast etc. There may be fewer particles with distance, but when you're dealing with low levels of radiation it doesn't matter how few there are.

    By April 1 2011 the Fukushima radiation will have passed over all of North America leaving many areas with very low levels of radiation depending on jet stream distribution.

    Once you ingest or inhale even very low levels of radioactive particles the Petkau Effect immediately starts potentially lethal tissue ionization.

    The phenomenon of the Petkau Effect basically means that you are ionizing or irradiating yourself continuously from the inside out. This insidious burning at your molecular level will impair your body long before there is a diagnosable disease.

    Free radicals are generated during long term exposure to extremely low levels of radiation. which will exhaust our defenses unless our body has an abundant reserve of antioxidants.

    Free radicals, or radicals, are atoms, molecules or ions with unpaired electrons. These highly reactive, molecules are unstable and contribute to the weakening of the body by destroying our cellular structure and making us more vulnerable to disease.

    When molecules in the body oxidize they become free radicals.

    Without sufficient antioxidants to combat the extreme low levels of radiation you will suffer from gene mutation, birth defects, infertility and increased risk for immune related disease and cancers.

    Damage Attributed To Free Radicals

    * degenerative disease
    * memory loss
    * neurological diseases
    * atherosclerosis
    * Alzheimers
    * Parkinsons
    * arthritis or other joint disorders
    * heart disease or stroke
    * diabetes
    * HIV
    * cataracts
    * cancer
    * aging

    Isn't it easy to see how the above diseases would never be associated with low levels of radiation?

    Here in Washington state, we've been taking aggressive steps to protect ourselves, our animals & our soils since March 18, what are you waiting for, permission from the "authorities?"

    Thanks Trancoso for the info report ~ there are lots of enlightened people here in the Great Northwest,
    i'm honored to be in there company Thubs Up

    note - today it is raining (thundering and hailing), where i'm presently located.

    Remote-controlled robots have detected high levels of radiation inside the reactor buildings at the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

    The plant operator, Tokyo Electric Power Company, on Monday released radiation data and photos taken by the US-made robots. The company conducted the survey using the robots on Sunday and Monday.

    This is the first time the situation inside the buildings has been made public since the March 11th disaster triggered a series of nuclear accidents. Workers have been unable to approach the buildings due to high radiation levels.
    TEPCO said the robots surveyed the first floor of the No.1 reactor for about 50 minutes and detected maximum radiation readings of 49 millisieverts per hour.
    A person staying in such an environment for 5 hours would be exposed to 250 millisierverts of radiation -- the legal limit for nuclear workers in emergency situations.

    The survey inside the No. 3 reactor lasted for about 2 hours, but the plant operator says the robots had difficulty moving around because of the debris. The maximum radiation reading was 57 millisieverts per hour.

    The power company says it hopes to find locations where workers can go to carry out decontamination tasks so it can implement its schedule for bringing the troubled plant under control.

    On Sunday, the utility presented a schedule for cooling down the reactors and significantly reducing radiation leaks within 6 to 9 months.

    This video gives an excellent analysis and head-up to whats been happening regarding the misguided use of nuclear power... but i disagree with the final prognosis...

    There are many who do not want to face this kind of information, but again i suggest take it in and then let it go...

    WE can transmute this by focusing our minds (within our hearts) on what we desire (envision) this world to be like by creating and allowing the mindset change needed.

    As I said on the Radiation & N. American West thread shopping at the supermarket needs to be done with a geiger counter...I always buy Alaska canned salmon. So I'm making do with my kelp tablets and no flush niacin...Lee Ellis mentioned that natyl l'cysteine helps with toxic metals...sure is expensive! Too bad we couldn't just take one pill that encompasses everything!! My handful of alternative pills in the morning gets larger and larger...

    Gio, my son lives in downtown seattle and I can see his building when you post photos of where you live. He seriously considered moving to Japan as most of his Atlanta asian friends are from Fukushima area. I am really happy he didn't go. I kept telling him Japan was supposed to get seismic activity of huge proportions so don't go. (He probably didn't go for other reasons including issues with Japanese girlfriends and such). All I know is that when you have children, even if they are grown you still think of their well being every day. My mom freaked out when I moved to Germany. If my son had moved to Japan, I would have been beside myself. Now, all I have to do is think about Seattle, which is much easier on the mom psyche. Thanks for the photos of seattle...it's like being a fly on the wall...and I'm proud I don't check the earthquake activity for cascadia every day. Enjoy your upcoming summer. It's so refreshing there during the hot months. Linda
