Fukushima nuclear waste now being found off all U.S. states on West Coast — Detected near shorelines of California, Oregon, Washington, and Alaska this summer — Highest radiation just miles from San Francisco (MAP):

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution: In the aftermath of the 2011 tsunami off Japan, the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant released cesium-134 and other radioactive elements into the ocean at unprecedented levels. Since then, the radioactive plume has traveled west across the Pacific… any cesium-134 detected in the ocean today must have come from Fukushima… We expect samples from the surface waters of the western Pacific that have not been contaminated by the Fukushima source to have 137Cs activity of between 1 and 2 Bq/m3 and for 134Cs to be “below detection.”

$20 Trillion In Government Bonds Yield Under 1%: The Stunning Facts How We Got There

$20 Trillion In Government Bonds Yield Under 1%: The Stunning Facts How We Got There:

… here are some shocking statistics on how we got there, and which we all take for granted, courtesy of BofA:

  • There have been 606 global rate cuts since LEH
  • $12.4 trillion of central bank asset purchases (QE) since Bear Stearns
  • The Fed is operating a zero rate policy for the longest period ever (even exceeding the WW2 Aug’37-Sep’42 zero rate period)
  • European central banks operating negative rate policies (Swiss policy rate currently -0.75%; Sweden’s policy rate currently -0.35
  • Just this month, the PBoC cut rates, the ECB confirmed QE2, Sweden announced additional QE, and the BoJ promised additional easing if necessary “without hesitation”
  • $6.3 trillion global government bonds currently yielding <0%
  • $20.0 trillion global government bonds currently yielding <1%

But wait, there’s more in describing what BofA says is the most immense and long-lasting monetary stimulus, i.e., bubble,  in history:

EPIC FAIL: Israel Accidentally Carves Russian Warplane Into Pumpkin For Israeli Air Force’s Halloween Decoration

And that Halloween pumpkin ‘accident’ will prove to be prophetic in the future.


Sunday Humor: Israel Accidentally Carves Russian Warplane Into Pumpkin For Halloween Facebook Post:

Say what you will about the Israelis, but you can’t exactly call them shy when it comes to anything that involves the military which is why we weren’t surprised to find out that the IAF carved a fighter jet into a pumpkin and posted it on Facebook yesterday.

That said, what we were surprised to discover is that whoever the pumpkin carver was accidentally used a Russian Sukhoi Su-27 as the model for the Israeli Air Force’s Halloween decoration.

At the risk of employing a pop culture cliche, we say: “epic fail”…

University Fees In Britain Doubles Prostitution:

The total number of prostitutes in the United Kingdom is not known and is difficult to assess, but authorities and NGOs estimated in 2009 that approximately 100,000 persons in the country were engaged in prostitution. According to data from the Office for National Statistics, prostitution contributed £5.3 billion to the UK economy in 2009.

Wifi Networks Can Now Identify Who You Are Through Walls

Wifi Networks Can Now Identify Who You Are Through Walls

Wifi Networks Can Now Identify Who You Are Through Walls:

Who needs a peep hole when a wifi network will do? Researchers from MIT have developed technology that uses wireless signals to see your silhouette through a wall—and it can even tell you apart from other people, too.

The team from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab are no strangers to using wireless signals to see what’s happening on the other side of a wall. In 2013, they showed off software that could use variations in wifi signal to detect the presence of human motion from the other side of a wall. But in the last two years they’ve been busy developing the technique, and now they’ve unveiled the obvious — if slightly alarming — natural progression: they can use the wireless reflections bouncing off a human body to see the silhouette of a person standing behind a wall.

Not only that, the team’s technique, known is RF-Capture, is accurate enough to track the hand of a human and, with some repeated measurements, the system can even be trained to recognise different people based just on their wifi silhouette. The research, which is to be presented at SIGGRAPH Asia next month, was published this morning on the research group’s website.

Analyst Warns Of Turbulence: ‘Geopolitical Dislocations Could Result In Key Resource Supplies Disappearing’

Analyst Warns Of Turbulence: ‘Geopolitical Dislocations Could Result In Key Resource Supplies Disappearing’:

Some of the world’s biggest investors have been taking significant positions in the commodity resource sector as of late, most notably in gold. With geopolitical tension and fear of economic breakdown reaching a near boiling point, it’s not difficult to see why. Instability pervades the entire system, encompassing everything from financial markets to social safety nets. And while it is easy to ignore the seriousness of current events because stock markets remain at record highs and mainstream pundits continue to toe the recovery line, the fact is that an unexpected and seemingly minor event could well send the entire world into a tailspin.

According to analyst John Kaiser, this is exactly what we need to be concerned with. In a candid interview with Future Money Trends Kaiser explains just how political dislocations could result in supply lines to critical commodities like food, copper, zinc and gold being cut – even without a major war – should the United States, Russia and China continue to bump heads.


(Watch at Future Money Trends or Youtube)

Forget about the big, giant macro-economic increases in overall global GDP, but instead let’s look at the turbulence we’re starting to see where China is asserting itself in the South China Sea area… where Putin is eyeing its lost colonies in Europe and Central Asia and thinking maybe we should re-establish the Soviet empire… where we see instability in the middle east.

China’s Manufacturing Misses; Nonmanufacturing Worst Since 2008 Despite Unprecedented $1 Trillion “Debt Injection”

China’s Manufacturing Misses; Nonmanufacturing Worst Since 2008 Despite Unprecedented $1 Trillion “Debt Injection”:

The most anticipated economic release over the weekend was the early glimpse into China’s manufacturing and non-manufacturing sectors via the two key PMI surveys released by China’s National Bureau of Statistics, to get a sense if the slowdown across China is stabilizing or, as some have suggested, rebounding. It did not: overnight the NBS reported that the manufacturing PMI remained unchanged in October at 49.8 missing consensus estimates of a modest rebound to 50.0, its third consecutive month in contraction territory.

Record Radiation At Fukushima Power Plant Could Kill Person In Under 1 Hour

Record radiation at Fukushima power plant could kill person in under 1 hour – reports:

Deadly radiation levels of up to 9.4 Sieverts per hour have been recorded at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant – enough to kill a person in less than an hour if directly exposed, local media reports.

The mortal radiation reading was taken in a small room, using a remote-controlled robot, where a pipe leads to the containment vessel of the No. 2 reactor at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant, JIJI Press reported, citing Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO).

The reading of 9.4 sieverts (Sv) per hour was taken during the September 4-25 checks. According to the operator, the highest levels of contamination were measured on the floor. TEPCO did not offer any further details. The company will start the decontamination process that it hopes to complete by December.

Deadly 9.4 sieverts detected outside Fukushima reactor 2 containment vessel; checks stop:

Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Thursday that radiation levels of up to 9.4 sieverts per hour have been detected near a reactor containment vessel at the meltdown-hit Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant.

Sept. 4-25 checks found the extremely high radiation levels in a small building containing a pipe that is connected to the reactor 2 containment vessel at the plant, which was devastated in the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami, Tepco said.

World Health Organization: Prolonged Exposure to Even LOW Level Radiation Increases the Risk of Cancer

World Health Organization: Prolonged Exposure to Even LOW Level Radiation Increases the Risk of Cancer:

Over 300,000 Nuclear Workers from France, the UK and US Studied for Radiation-Cancer Link

A major new study coordinated by World Health Organization’s cancer division – the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) – finds that even low-level radiation increases the risk of cancer, if exposure occurs over time.

The IARC announced last week:

New results from a study coordinated by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), the cancer agency of the World Health Organization, show that protracted exposure to low doses of ionizing radiation increases the risk of death from solid cancers. The results, published today in The BMJ [the prestigious British Medical Journal], are based on the most powerful study to date and provide direct evidence about cancer risks after protracted exposures to low-dose ionizing radiation.

A Handy Solution to Every Pending Mandatory Vaccination Program

Brain-Scans-Vaccine

A Handy Solution to Every Pending Mandatory Vaccination Program:

Mandatory vaccination bills are sweeping the US right now, with this HealthImpactNews report that 15 US states are trying in one way or another to force vaccines on the public and squash people’s right to decide what kind of medical treatment they want – and to have sole domain and authority over what goes into their bodies. The mandatory vaccination program is really an assault on bodily sovereignty. It is the State saying,” You don’t know what’s best for you – we do. You don’t own your body – we do.” It is completely unacceptable from a purely rights-and-freedom-based perspective, even if vaccines were the greatest medical intervention ever – and they are a long, long, long way from this, as can be seen by their inclusion of toxic adjuvants, fetal tissue from aborted cells lines and their propensity to lead to viral shedding and contagion in those who take them.

Robot Buses Are Coming To America, To Pave The Way For Driverless Cars

Robot Buses Are Coming To America, To Pave The Way For Driverless Cars:

Self-driving buses are coming to America. The Bishop Ranch business park in San Ramon, California will be the first place in the U.S. to use French robo-buses to ferry passengers around.

Perhaps the best place for autonomous vehicles to start out is in this kind of training ground, although given the safety record of Google’s self-driving cars, the training might be for us humans in getting used to them. It’s hard to argue that preset routes and low speeds aren’t ideal for an introduction to driverless vehicles, and that’s just what the Easymile company specializes in.

The EZ10 is a driverless bus designed for short hops. It has been deployed in Europe—in Finland, France, and is just about to launch in Spain. The electric vehicles carry up to ten passengers, and have ramps for wheelchairs and strollers. The idea is that they carry you the “last mile” of your journey, and one of their main uses is in theme parks.

Google and YouTube now engaging in wholesale censorship of content they don’t want the public to see:

“Take your pills and don’t ask questions. Drink the sweet wine of entertainment we have given you. Don’t think for yourself: just believe. The truth will no longer be published unless we allow it to be.”

Google, and its popular video sharing platform YouTube, are quickly becoming purveyors of propaganda, censoring material that could expose and question the status quo. These popular internet platforms are following in the footsteps of oppressive government regimes that punish whistle blowers and go after anyone who asks questions, seeks answers and reports on the most atrocious abuses of the day.

Community Preparations For Catastrophic Events

Community Preparations For Catastrophic Events:

This article was written by Tom Chatham and originally published at Project Chesapeake

Many people now feel that pending trouble is in the air. They may not know what or why but they can feel it deep in their bones. For these people the urge to prepare for potential problems is now incorporated into their everyday lives. When something far reaching and catastrophic happens the ability of groups and communities to pull together is one way to deal with the aftermath and work through the problems to remain safe and healthy.

When something happens that may prevent outside help from reaching you, it is necessary to have the infrastructure and supplies to help yourself until the situation stabilizes. For the group or community there are certain actions that can be taken beforehand to insure the group can sustain themselves for the duration.

Americans Face Impoverishing War on Cash: “More Big Banks Are Shunning Cash”

Americans Face Impoverishing War on Cash: “More Big Banks Are Shunning Cash”:

This article was written by J.D. Heyes and originally published at Natural News.com.

Editor’s Comment: Only in the bizarro-world controlled by the banksters would cash money become a liability and pseudo-criminalized form of payment (which is actually an instrument of debt).

But as SHTF has covered at length, the big banks are much more interesting in having everyone under their control, and on watch through the cashless control surveillance grid.

WAR ON CASH: Banks to start charging for cash deposits

by J.D. Heyes

Few could have envisioned it even just a few years ago, but it’s happening now, and on an ever-widening scale. More big U.S. banks are shunning cash, because the banking system has become so dependent on other “assets” that large cash deposits actually pose a threat to their financial health, according to The Wall Street Journal.
