Japan’s Kepco Restarts Takahama No. 4 Reactor Despite Protest

Posted by feww on May 17, 2017

Japan Restarts 4th Nuclear Reactor

Osaka-based Kansai Electric Power Co. (KEPCO) restarted its Takahama No. 4 reactor located in Fukui Prefecture on Wednesday about 14 months after it was forced to shut it down, bringing to four the number of reactors now operating in Japan.

“The No. 4 reactor was turned back on at 5 p.m. today. It’s an important step, but it’s not the end. We’ll proceed with operations carefully, with an attitude of always having safety as the top priority,” said KEPCO President.

Takahama nuclear power plant, located in the town of Takahama, Ōi District, Fukui Prefecture, is owned and operated by KEPCO. The plant has four pressurized water reactors with electricity generating capacity at 3,392 MW, and previously (2006-2010) averaged annual production of 22,638 GWh.

Untouched by Humans: Pristine Henderson Island

Posted by feww on May 16, 2017

Worst case of plastic pollution in the world: A plastic wasteland on an uninhabited, pristine South Pacific island

 

Ocean currents have carried about 38 million items of plastic debris to Henderson Island in the South Pacific.(A) Plastic debris on East Beach of Henderson Island. Much of this debris originated from fishing-related activities or land-based sources in China, Japan, and Chile (Table S5). (B) Plastic items recorded in a daily accumulation transect along the high tide line of North Beach. (C) Adult female green turtle (Chelonia mydas) entangled in fishing line on North Beach. (D) One of many hundreds of purple hermit crabs (Coenobita spinosa) that make their homes in plastic containers washed up on North Beach. Image: Jennifer L. Lavers. Source: PNAS

‘Exceptional and rapid accumulation of anthropogenic debris on one of the world’s most remote and pristine islands’

By Jennifer L. Lavers et al.

Abstract

In just over half a century plastic products have revolutionized human society and have infiltrated terrestrial and marine environments in every corner of the globe. The hazard plastic debris poses to biodiversity is well established, but mitigation and planning are often hampered by a lack of quantitative data on accumulation patterns. Here we document the amount of debris and rate of accumulation on Henderson Island, a remote, uninhabited island in the South Pacific. The density of debris was the highest reported anywhere in the world, up to 671.6 items/m2 (mean ± SD: 239.4 ± 347.3 items/m2) on the surface of the beaches. Approximately 68% of debris (up to 4,496.9 pieces/m2) on the beach was buried <10 cm in the sediment. An estimated 37.7 million debris items weighing a total of 17.6 tons are currently present on Henderson, with up to 26.8 new items/m accumulating daily. Rarely visited by humans, Henderson Island and other remote islands may be sinks for some of the world’s increasing volume of waste.

Japan Focus 07: Biggest Brothel in the World

Posted by feww on May 16, 2017

  • All Groups

“Filthy old Japs,” JK business, “tour guiding,” “compensated dating,” taboo sex and all other illicit and depraved sexual activities

[Prepared by an affiliated team of political scientists.]

  • Report available from FIRE-EARTH PULSARS.

Background:

  • The continued practice of enjo kosai (compensated dating) and the existence of websites for online dating, social networking, and “delivery health” (a euphemism for call-girl or escort services) facilitated the sex trafficking of children and other commercial sex industries. A trend known as “JK business” continued to grow; these businesses include cafes that feature underage female servers and massage parlors staffed by high school-age girls. NGOs helping girls in “JK business” reported a link between these activities and the exploitation of children in prostitution.

“Red Alert”: Italian Supervolcano May Erupt “Soon”

Posted by feww on May 16, 2017

Italy’s supervolcano at “critical stage” of eruption: “volcanic activity might be imminent”

Campi Flegrei, Italy’s only supervolcano, could erupt sooner than previously predicted, researchers say, immediately affecting more than three million people who live in the Naples area.

The volcano last erupted in 1538 but it has been restless since 1950, with local seismicity and ground uplift recorded in the 1950s, 1970s and 1980s, similar to a 100-year long episode that lead  to the last eruption.

More than 26,000 micro-earthquakes, or volcano-tectonic (VT) events, have occurred across the central zone of the caldera during the current unrest, researchers say.

“The current unrest is consistent with a reactivation of the magmatic system after 412 years and, hence, with an increase in the threat from volcanic activity to the caldera’s population of almost 360,000 people, as well as to the three million residents of Naples immediately outside its eastern margin.”

Ground movements of about 3m, the largest recorded since Roman times, have occurred since 1950.

“At Campi Flegrei itself, an additional obstacle to effective warning is a low public awareness of volcanic hazard compared with the perceived threat from microseismicity. The persistent VT seismicity in 1983–1984 damaged buildings throughout Pozzuoli and triggered the evacuation of some 40,000 people.”

They have published their findings in the nature Communications.

Concerned voter vents off on GOP Congressman from Tennessee

Weakley County Sheriff’s Department
May 11 at 8:23am ·
PRESS RELEASE 05/11/17
Investigators from the criminal investigations division of the Weakley County Sheriff’s Department have arrested 35 year old Wendi L. Wright of 4004 Hubert Harris Road in Obion County Tennessee and charged her with felony reckless endangerment after an incident that took place in Weakley County on Monday May 8th 2017. During that time it is alleged that Wright followed a vehicle occupied by U.S. Congressman David Kustoff and his aide Marianne Dunavant while they were going down Highway 45 south of Martin. They had been at a town hall meeting on the campus of the University of Tennessee at Martin. Wright placed the occupants in fear of being forced off of the roadway. They turned onto Old Troy Road and into a driveway of a person they were familiar with. Wright exited her vehicle and began screaming and striking the windows of their vehicle and at one point reached inside their vehicle. She then stood in front of their vehicle in an attempt to keep them blocked in. A 911 call was placed during this time but Wright left the area before deputies arrived. Wright was identified after she posted details of the encounter on facebook. Wright was located by deputies from the Obion County Sheriff’s Department and taken into custody on the Weakley County arrest warrant. She has been released after posting a one thousand dollar bond. Wright will be arraigned on Monday May 15th 2017 in Weakley County General Sessions Court.

The Most Lucrative War Racket Ever: $4.8 Trillion and Counting

A call to indict US and UK governments for war crimes, crimes against humanity and Grand Theft  of $4.8 trillion of taxpayers money.

[Prepared by an affiliated team of political scientists.]

  • Report available from FIRE-EARTH PULSARS.

Background:

“US Budgetary Costs of Wars through 2016: $4.79 Trillion and Counting – Summary of Costs of the US Wars in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and Pakistan and Homeland Security

  • “As of August 2016, the US has already appropriated, spent, or taken on obligations to spend more than $3.6 trillion in current dollars on the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Syria and on Homeland Security (2001 through fiscal year 2016). To this total should be added the approximately $65 billion in dedicated war spending the Department of Defense and State Department have requested for the next fiscal year, 2017, along with an additional nearly $32 billion requested for the Department of Homeland Security in 2017, and estimated spending on veterans in future years. When those are included, the total US budgetary cost of the wars reaches $4.79 trillion.” [That’s about $15,000 for every man, woman, child, and illegal immigrant in the country.]

Vote Suppression Helped Trump Win Wisconsin: Report

Posted by feww on May 13, 2017

Wisconsin’s Voter-ID Law Suppressed 200,000 Votes in 2016 (Trump Won by 22,748)

Voter-ID laws decreased turnout among African-American and Democratic voters in Wisconsin, says a new study.

“A new study by Priorities USA, shared exclusively with The Nation, shows that strict voter-ID laws, in Wisconsin and other states, led to a significant reduction in voter turnout in 2016, with a disproportionate impact on African-American and Democratic-leaning voters. Wisconsin’s voter-ID law reduced turnout by 200,000 votes, according to the new analysis. Donald Trump won the state by only 22,748 votes.”

“Priorities USA study is consistent with a 2014 study by the Government Accountability Office, which found that strict voter-ID laws in Kansas and Tennessee reduced turnout by 2 percent, enough to swing a close election…”

“[V]oter-ID laws are designed [to] make it harder for certain communities to vote.  [Some] 87 bills to restrict access to the ballot have been introduced in 29 states this year, including voter-ID laws in 19 states. Arkansas and Iowa have already passed strict voter-ID laws in 2017. ”
