Taal Volcano on Alert Level 2

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) has just raised the alert level of Taal Volcano from Level 1 to Level 2.

The volcano has shown increased seismic activity since late April, said Allan Loza of the Phivolcs Taal Volcano Observatory.

Phivolcs recorded 2 high frequency volcanic earthquakes over the past 24 hours and reported an increase in the size of earthquakes over the period.

“Initial result of precise leveling survey conducted yesterday at the southeast side of the volcano island showed further inflation by 3.0mm, ” Phivolcs said.

The Swines Were Paid by Pharmaceuticals to Urge Stockpiling Drugs: Report

‘Report condemns swine flu experts’ ties to big pharma’

“Scientists who drew up the key World Health Organisation guidelines advising governments to stockpile drugs in the event of a flu pandemic had previously been paid by drug companies which stood to profit, according to a report out today.” Guardian UK reported.

“An investigation by the British Medical Journal and the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, the not-for-profit reporting unit, shows that WHO guidance issued in 2004 was authored by three scientists who had previously received payment for other work from Roche, which makes Tamiflu, and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), manufacturer of Relenza.” More…

Helen Thomas: Words of Wisdom

Posted by feww on June 8, 2010

Quote of the Century:

“Tell them to get the hell out of Palestine”

“Tell them to get the hell out of Palestine … Remember these people are occupied, and its their land; not Germans’, it’s not Poland’s.”

Israelis should “go home” to “Poland,” “Germany” and  America and everywhere else …

Helen Thomas turned 89 on Aug. 4, 2009.

Thomas, 89, the longest-serving reporter in the White House, was forced to resign.

“Helen Thomas announced Monday that she is retiring, effective immediately,” Hearst news reported.

“Her decision came after her controversial comments about Israel and the Palestinians were captured on videotape and widely disseminated on the internet.”

Texas Gas Pipeline Explosion Follows Explosion at W Va Gas Well

Posted by feww on June 8, 2010

About Two Dozen People Killed or Injured in Two Separate Gas Explosions in West Virginia and Texas

Early Monday morning an explosion at a West Virginia natural gas well injured seven workers, who were taken to Pittsburgh hospital.

“A spokeswoman for one of the companies involved in the well, Texas-based Chief Oil & Gas, says that a rig firefighting company will move damaged equipment out of the way while the fire burns.” AP reported.

“The explosion happened about 1:30 a.m. in a rural area outside Moundsville, about 55 miles southwest of Pittsburgh. A column of fire shot at least 70 feet high, but the flames fell to 40 feet within hours. Gas continued to burn late Monday afternoon.”

About 98 percent of drilling in the region now involves Marcellus shale, authorities say.

Several hours later, a major gas explosion in a Texas gas pipeline killed at least three people, and injured up to a dozen more. Officials said the gas line was struck with a mechanical digger.

“My whole building was shaking,” Carolyn Black, who lives about five miles away from the explosion site was reported as saying. “It sounded like someone landing a big Jumbo 747 in the backyard.”

“A lot is going to depend on where the main valves are that control that section of line,”  said Cleburne city manager Chester Nolen.

“Obviously, what’s in the line is going to have to burn off before they can get it shut off.

“So it may be late into this evening when they get the fire controlled.”

It could take several hours to bring the fire under control, he said.
