You call this savagery humanity?

“Nearly 2.2 million Yemeni children are acutely malnourished, and an estimated 462,000 children suffer from severe acute malnutrition – almost a three-fold rise over 2014 levels.”

At least 10,000 people have been killed in Yemen and that 21 million are in need of humanitarian assistance, according to the UN.

UK Living in 18th Century

A third of UK lives on insufficient income: JRF

About a third of the UK population is living on an “inadequate” income, according to research by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF).

  • The number of individuals below MIS rose by four million (27%), from 15 million to 19 million (from 25 to 30% of the population), between 2008/9 and 2014/5.
  • At least 11 million people are living far short of MIS, up from 9.1 million, who have incomes below 75% of the standard and are at high risk of being in poverty.

[The Minimum Income Standard (MIS) is a benchmark of adequate income based on what the public think people need for a minimum acceptable living standard in the UK. This analysis monitors changes in the number of people in households with incomes below MIS, and the number below 75% of MIS, an indicator of poverty.]

  • Six million children, that is 45% of all children in Britain, are among the 19 million below the MIS.
  • Some 1.8 million pensioners, representing 14.6% of the age group, live below MIS.

A working couple with two young children, living in social housing, each need to earn £18,900 a year.

Weekly rental values for a private two- bedroom apartment: £345  (£1,495 per month, or US$1,860) – but that’s just on paper.

Quarter of Europe’s Orthoptera Driven to Extinction

Posted by feww on February 13, 2017

European Red List of Grasshoppers, Crickets and Bush-crickets

Nearly 26% of European  Orthoptera species  [and 28% of EU 28’s] are assessed as threatened, according to UCN Red List report on Orthoptera.

However, the exact proportion of threatened species is uncertain… the best estimate of the threatened share of Orthoptera species is thus 28.5% in Europe and 30.6% in the EU 28. Further research on DD species to clarify their status is therefore critical. A further 13.9% (149 species) and 13% (128 species) are considered Near Threatened in Europe and in the EU 28, respectively.

ghe-report

The Western Banded Grasshopper (Arcyptera brevipennis) has a disjunct distribution in south-western and south-eastern Europe and is found in steppe-like Mediterranean vegetation and rocky grassland or shrubland habitats. This Vulnerable species is threatenedby changes in the grazing regime (particularly by abandonment) and afforestation. ©Florin Rutschmann. IUCN Red List report on Orthoptera.

“By comparison, the best estimate of threatened species of those other groups that have been assessed comprehensively in Europe is 58% of freshwater molluscs, 40% of freshwater fishes, 23% of amphibians, 20% of reptiles, 17% of mammals, 16% of dragonflies, 13% of birds, 9% of butterflies and bees, 8% of aquatic plants and marine fishes and 2% of medicinal plants. Additional European Red Lists assessing a selection of species showed that 22% of terrestrial molluscs, 16% of crop wild relatives and 15% of saproxylic beetles are also threatened. No other groups have yet been assessed at the European level.

“Looking at the population trends of European Orthoptera species, 30.2% (325 species) have declining populations, 7.6% (82 species) are believed to be more or less stable and 3.2% (34 species) are increasing. However, the population trends for the majority of species (59%, 634 species) remain unknown.”

Mass Evacuation Ordered below Oroville Dam

Posted by feww on February 13, 2017

About 200,000 People Evacuated

Lake Oroville Dam, the tallest in the US, located 105 km north of Sacramento, N. California, is predicted to fail due to structural damage in the Oroville Auxiliary Spillway.

About 200,000 people [figure quoted by one official was 350,000 people] were ordered to evacuate from the areas below the Lake Oroville Dam on Sunday.

“Immediate evacuation from the low levels of Oroville and areas downstream is ordered. This is NOT A Drill. This is NOT A Drill. This in NOT A Drill,” reads a statement issued by the Butte County Sheriff’s office.

Fat Emperor is Mentally Insane

Could Romans stop the deranged emperor from burning Rome?

Many Romans believed Emperor Nero (Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus) started the Great Fire of Rome (64 AD) in order to clear land for his new palatial villa known as Domus Aurea (“Golden House”).

His building projects drove Rome to bankruptcy, which eventually forced him to commit suicide in 68 (the first Roman emperor to do so), after receiving (fake) news that he was about to be executed for treason.

Nero’s reign was associated with tyranny, debauchery and extravagance.

Other deranged Roman emperors include Caligula, Commodus and Tiberius.

‘Catastrophic’ Fires Plague NSW, Australia

Posted by feww on February 12, 2017

Residents told to get out as multiple bushfires breach containment lines

There are reports of dozens of homes and other structures being destroyed, machinery and other agricultural assets being lost, and hundreds of farm animals perished in the raging fires.

“The NSW Rural Fire Service says people who live in bushland areas with catastrophic fire conditions need to leave their homes as blazes can become uncontrollable in minutes,” said a report.

“At 8pm [Sunday] there are 97 fires across the state, with 37 uncontained. 4 are at Emergency Warning & 2 at Watch & Act,” NWS RFS reported.

A 40,000-hectare fire has been burning since Saturday at Leadville near Dunedoo, east of Dubbo, reports said.

Massive Radiation at Fukushima Reactor ‘Blinds’ Cleaner Robot

Posted by feww on February 11, 2017

Decommissioning of Nuclear Reactors at Fukushima a Pipe Dream?

TEPCO sent a remote-controlled cleaning robot inside the crippled reactor no. 2 at Fukushima nuclear plant, but was forced to withdraw it on Thursday before it could complete its mission because of camera damage most likely caused by high radiation levels of about 650 Sieverts per hour, according to the operator.

TEPCO managers insist that despite the dangerously high figures, radiation is contained inside the reactor unit and is not leaking out.

The operator has not yet established the exact location, condition and quantity of melted fuel and the nature of structural damage in the three stricken reactors.

Three reactors were critically damaged and suffered meltdown in March 2011, after a mega [KSFA] earthquake and tsunami hit the area.

Hundreds of Whales Die after Mass Stranding on NZ Coast

Posted by feww on February 10, 2017

Third-worst whale stranding on record leaves hundreds of Cetacea dead in NZ

At least 340 pilot whales have died after a mass stranding on Farewell Spit (Golden Bay, NZ), and about 80 were still alive tonight.

The stranding may have been due to old age, sickness, or the  whales inability to keep up with the pod. Underwater explosions caused by sonar, seismic testing or underwater sea quakes could also have an impact on them,” said a report.

Hottest February day in NSW as “extraordinary heatwave” moves across Australia

The heatwave moving across the sub continent is expected to intensify over the weekend, elevating the threat of potentially catastrophic fire conditions, authorities warned.

New South Wales could face its hottest February day on record, with temperatures reaching 47ºC in western parts of the state, said the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM).

The temperature reached 47.4ºC in Hay Airport, making it the third-hottest day recorded in February for NSW, and the record could be shattered on Saturday, said reports.

Meanwhile, Sydney set a temperature record for the number of days over 35ºC, as most of the city broiled in the 40s.

‘Fukushima Catastrophe Ongoing: Leakage continues on a daily basis’

Posted by feww on February 9, 2017

Radiation at Fukushima rising to highest level since 2011 meltdown

“[…] recent measurements showing 53,000 Rem per hour (deadly to humans within a minute or less, at close range, in the absence of radiation shielding), or higher, radiation dose rates in the melted down Unit 2 reactor at Fukushima Daiichi, Japan.”

Emergency storage tanks contain “800,000 tons of highly radioactive water … because every day they pour a hundred tons of water on each of these three melted down cores and sometimes they lose those tanks. They leak, they overflow, so it is an ongoing catastrophe,” says Kevin Kamps, radioactive waste monitor at Beyond Nuclear,

“There are many shoes that could still drop at Fukushima Daiichi. One of the ones is the high radioactive waste storage pools that aren’t even inside radiological containment. They don’t have all of that spent nuclear fuel transferred to a safer location in a couple of the units still. If something were to go wrong with that – those would be open air releases of very high-level radioactivity.

“The prime minister at the time the catastrophe began, Kan, had a contingency plan to evacuate all of Northeast Japan – up to 50 million people. It was predominantly because of those storage pools. We’re still in that predicament- if one of those pools were to go up in flames. As Tokyo plans to host the 2020 Olympics and bring in many millions of extra people into this already densely populated area –it is not a good idea.”

Nuclear Power: Explosion Rocks Flamanville NPP in France

Posted by feww on February 9, 2017

Explosion and fire reported at Flamanville NPP, N. France

About a dozen people have been injured in an explosion that rocked Flamanville Nuclear Power Plant in Manche, Cotentin Peninsula, on France’s northern coast, according to local reports.

The power plant houses two pressurized water reactors (PWRs) that produce a total of 2.6 GWe. They came into service in 1986 and 1987, respectively. Their combined annual output of about 19 TWh is the equivalent of 4.5% of the fission-electricity production in France.
