Two Cyclones Moving Toward Japan

Posted by feww on October 1, 2013

Tropical Cyclone SEPAT strengthening; tracking close to Fukushima

Tropical Cyclone SEPAT (TS 1322) is strengthening and models show it would track close to the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant.

The news comes amid yet another revelation by Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) that it had found yet another leak at the plant, which caused 4 tons of radioactive water to enter the sea.

The criminally negligent government of Japan and TEPCO apparently won’t rest until the entire region, the country, the sea and all of its content, is contaminated with radiation.

U.S. Government Shuts Down

Posted by feww on October 1, 2013

Government in partial shutdown amid budget standoff between the House, Senate and White House

The House and Senate were unable to agree on a government-funding bill before a midnight Monday deadline, forcing the federal government to shut down for the first time in 17 years.

The shutdown means that 800,000 federal workers are to be furloughed (unpaid leave) and more than a million others would be asked to work without pay. There would be NO guarantee of back pay once the deadlock is over.
