The NIA has produced a very professional anti-Mitt Romeny video called “The Romney Con” that the NIA hopes will go viral. DO NOT held make that happen. The NIA is the real con! It is nothing more than a front for penny stock pump and dump scams. The NIA does not really support Ron Paul, they merely pretend to support him so they can steal money from those who do. Spread the truth. Circulated this video to warn Ron Paul supporters and prevent them from being ripped off.
– Fukushima: ‘Reactor No. 4 Is Looking More And More Like The Leaning Tower Of Pisa Right Now’ – If It ‘Falls Over It’s Just Gonna Dump A Whole Reactor Core Right Out Onto The Ground’ (And Tokyo & Yokohama Will Be Lost!) (Video)
– Reactor 4 : Spent fuel pool was boiling without water after 1/1/2012 (Fukushima Diary, Jan. 8, 2012):
Following up this article about the decreasing of water level at reactor 4…
The blogger woman in Minamisoma leaked information from an actual Fukushima worker.
According to her post, after the earthquake of 1/1/2012, the pipe of spent fuel pool for reactor 4 was broken, the pool completely lost its water.
The worker stated, Sooner or later, the truth will have to to be widely known. Believe it or not, you will only regret. Wear a mask at least.
The pool was boiling without water.
– Japanese Government to Measure Radiation of Rain and Snow in Fukushima Prefecture (EX_SKF, Jan. 7, 2012):
About time, you may say. But wait, there’s more. The result will be available in March.
And while we wait for the radioactivity of the snow that falls in Fukushima, the prefecture and the national government have been promoting ski slopes in Fukushima to young people with free or discount lift tickets. Come on up, the snow will shield dangerous radiation, so ski and snowboard in our beautiful mountains, the ski hotels in Fukushima say.
The Ministry of Education and Science already announced that there will be no announcement on weekends and holidays.
Yomiuri Shinbun (1/8/2012):
The national government’s Nuclear Emergency Response Headquarters in Fukushima Prefecture and the Fukushima Prefecture’s Disaster Response Headquarters have started to collect rain and snow that fall on Fukushima to measure radioactive materials.
１回目の測定結果は、３月初旬までに公表す る予定。大気中に浮遊するちりなどに含まれる放射性物質の測定は、現在も県内２０か所以上で実施しているが、昨年夏以降、検出限界値を下回る地点が多く なっていた。このため、雨や雪についても観測し、どの程度放射性物質が地表に沈着しているかを調べる。
The result of the first measurement is expected to be released by early March. The radioactive fallout in the air is still measured at more than 20 locations inside Fukushima, but since last summer the numbers at many locations are below the detection limit. So the government will test rain and snow in addition to the fallout to see the deposition of radioactive materials on the ground surface.
Part 1 and part 2:
(H/T to the readers who did the translation and the summary of the original German article on TAZ. Thank you.)
What struck me about the article interviewing Dr. Dörte Siedentopf, other than the negative health effects on the residents, is the following:
- Damage from the nuclear accident will increase, not decrease, over time;
- Belarus got highly contaminated because the Soviet government induced artificial rain to fall on Belarus when the radioactive plume threatened Moscow;
- It took 10 years to resettle the residents, during which time they continued to live in the contaminated areas;
- When the Soviet system collapsed and the money ran out, Belarus declared the end of the accident, Chernobyl as something to be memorialized in a museum.
Well, Japan is well ahead of Belarus and Russia. They already want to memorialize the Fukushima accident by building a museum, “lest the memory of the accident fades away”. It doesn’t matter to them if their accident is still on-going.
The following is the German to English translation of the original article “Ärztin mit sozialer Verantwortung: Der heiße Stein” by Viola:
The hot stone
Doctor Dörte Siedentopf organizes recreation stays since 20 years for Chernobyl children. She is bewildered about how to deal with Fukushima.
By Gabriele Goettle
Ghost town of Pripyat in the Ukraine: The residents were forever evacuated after the disaster.
Dr. med. Dörte Siedentopf, born in 1942 in Oldenburg, school attendance and high school there, and from 1961 studied medicine in Würzburg, Berlin, Göttingen. 1966 examination, promotion 1968, 1967 marriage, two children, from 1970 in Hesse Dietzenbach own medical practice as a general practitioner and psychotherapy in a group practice. Retired since 2003.
She is (since its foundation in 1981) a member of the IPPNW (International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War, doctors in social responsibility). She initiated the installation of “stumbling blocks” in Dietzenbach and founded in the early 90s, the “Circle of Friends Kostjukovitschi e. V. Dietzenbach” that besdides other activities, sends relief shipments to Belarus twice a year, with medical equipment, clothing, bicycles, sewing machines, computers, etc.
Since 20 years, recovery stays in Germany are organized for children of Chernobyl. Hospitable Dietzenbacher families accomodate White Russian children every summer. The Circle of Friends now has many members and many friends in Kostjukovitschi. A number of active helpers for the Circle of friends takes care of everything, even to the collection of monetary and material donations. Since 2009, the 23 Anniversary of Chernobyl, there exists a town twinning. Dr. Siedentopf is married to a physician, both children have studied medicine. Her father was a country doctor, her mother a housewife and a teacher.
Dr. Siedentopf welcomes us into her small rooftop apartment in early December in Berlin Pankow in proximity of a park. Over tea and biscuits, she tells us about her relief activities and experiences.
“The worst thing is that the organizers have nothing learned from Chernobyl. I’m speechless over the handling of the nuclear disaster in Fukushima, which is still larger than that of Chernobyl. About the fact that the government’s did not increase the evacuation zone accordingly, and women and children have not brought immediately to the south of the country to safety, one can only feel helpless rage. Instead, the population is systematically lied to, they are not at all or misinformed about the real dangers. This is completely irresponsible. What’s coming up now to the Japanese – diseases and problems- it’s unimagenable. And politics and nuclear industry really put up with everything! Worldwide!

– Video: Fukushima Farmer Doubles Down, Vows to Stay and Grow Crops, Repair Land (EX-SKF, Jan. 7, 2012):
Why? Because the Japanese people have overcome many obstacles in the past.
He looks too young to remember the days during the World War II when women and children were trained on downing B-29 high-altitude bombers with bamboo spears, and they truly believed it could be done.
The farmer, Mr. Sugeno, says “Even if children evacuate, adults must stay and repair the land”. Problem is that children are not evacuating.
To me, he’s trying his utmost best to convince himself, justify what he’s been doing and he will do. But here’s the video, so that you can make your own judgment:
From Youtube video description:
http://uncannyterrain.com http://tinyurl.com/uncannyterrain Fukushima, Japan organic farmer Seiji Sugeno turns the tables on documentarian Ed M. Koziarski, challenging him to come out from behind the camera and reveal his own opinion about the nuclear crisis and the future of the farmers who’ve chosen to stay on their contaminated land near the failed Fukushima, Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.
On the other hand, there are farmers like Mr. Tanno , who gave up on growing crops in Fukushima after the accident, and moved to Nagano to grow his highly-praised organic vegetables at the age of 70. Compare his smile selling his first batch of carrot juice with the harsh countenance of Mr. Sugeno in the video above.

– Debate persists on deadly flu made airborne (NDTV, Dec. 27, 2011):
The young scientist, normally calm and measured, seemed edgy when he stopped by his boss’s office.
“You are not going to believe this one,” he told Ron Fouchier, a virologist at the Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam. “I think we have an airborne H5N1 virus.”
The news, delivered one afternoon last July, was chilling. It meant that Dr. Fouchier’s research group had taken one of the most dangerous flu viruses ever known and made it even more dangerous – by tweaking it genetically to make it more contagious.
What shocked the researchers was how easy it had been, Dr. Fouchier said. Just a few mutations was all it took to make the virus go airborne.
The discovery has led advisers to the United States government, which paid for the research, to urge that the details be kept secret and not published in scientific journals to prevent the work from being replicated by terrorists, hostile governments or rogue scientists.
– Mysterious Spike in Cesium Fallout in Fukushima on Jan 2, 2012 (Updated with Chiba Information) (EX-SKF, Jan. 6, 2012):
The spike happened one day after the pretty big earthquake (seismic intensity scale 4) on January 1, 2012, which caused the water level of the Skimmer Surge Tank of Reactor 4 to fluctuate unexpectedly.
Only the people on the net paid attention to the data and it was not reported by the MSM. The Ministry of Education and Science issued the result of the fallout measurement, without saying anything as to why these dates (12/27/2011 to date) are being singled out.
This person tweeted the pic with three overlapping charts comparing (from the top): (1) amount of snow on the ground and amount of rain, (2) amount of cesium fallout, and (3) wind speed (average speed in black, maximum speed in blue, and maximum instantaneous speed in red), from December 1, 2011 to January 6, 2012:
The huge spike looks a few sigmas away from the norm, even with the wind speed picking up on January 2, 2012.

– Gerald Celente: EU Collapses In 90 Days, Bank Holiday and War (GLD, SLV, EWI, VGK, EWG) (ETF Daily News, January 4, 2012):
Twenty-two months of hysteria of an impending European financial collapse, starting with Greece in March of 2010, will finally come to an end in 2012, according to the founder of Trends Research Institute, Gerald Celente.
Hysteria of the horrid possibility of a European meltdown and the dire implications for the world economy a collapse will end, as the event finally turn into unequivocal reality by April 1, with accusations of ‘fear mongering’ by a significant portion of the mob quickly dropped in favor of the next predictable reaction to the crisis: outrage against those who allowed the collapse.
“I would say, since I’ve been doing this work, over 30 years ago, I’ve never been more concerned than I am right now,” Celente told ABC, Australia.
In Celente’s latest forecast, titled, The First Great War of the 21st Century—Prepare, Survive, Prevail, he paints a bleak picture for 2012, predicting a worsening of class warfare that already wages within more than a dozen countries, from Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen, Syria, Bahrain and Qatar to the UK, Greece and Italy, which will eventually spread to eastern Europe/central Asia and more intensely in the United States.

More from Dr. Dörte Siedentopf:
Does that mean that NOW 25 years after Chernobyl those people are getting seriously ill who were back then exposed to low-level radiation?
Yes, indeed. Those who have been adults back then survived 25 years and are NOW getting sick. We call it the silent death. Those who have been children back then got sick a lot earlier – often times with fatal consequences.
How do I have to imagine life in those contaminated areas?
Life? Above all there is death, silent death, mainly cancer. People die of all sorts of diseases related to Strontium, affecting for example the heart muscle, whose energy becomes dysfunctional. We have studies from Belarus documenting that already 2-year-old to 4-year-old children die of acute heart failure. It does not have to be cancer. The people die of kidney and liver failure and all kinds of blood diseases, also known as ‘Chernobyl AIDS’.
Dörte Siedentopf is a member of International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (IPPNW), which is a non-partisan federation of national medical groups in 63 countries, representing tens of thousands of doctors, medical students, other health workers, and concerned citizens who share the common goal of creating a more peaceful and secure world freed from the threat of nuclear annihilation. The organization’s headquarters is in Somerville, Massachusetts.

For the month of November 2011, one pre-schooler in Koriyama City in the high-radiation “Nakadori” region in Fukushima Prefecture was found with 0.66 millisievert of external radiation exposure. The maximum number for the pregnant women was 0.36 millisievert.
On an annualized basis, 7.92 millisieverts from external radiation alone for the particular child, and 4.32 millisieverts for the pregnant woman. The average for the children was 0.11 millisievert, which would be 1.32 millisievert in one year. The average for the pregnant women was 0.10 millisievert, which would be 1.20 millisievert in one year.
Just a friendly reminder: Before the Fukushima I Nuke Plant accident, the natural “external” radiation exposure average in Japan was 0.59 millisievert per year.
Another reminder: Koriyama City started fitting the children and pregnant women with glass badges starting November 2011. There is no way of knowing what the radiation exposure may have been in the earlier months.
Yomiuri Shinbun (1/6/2012):
Koriyama City in Fukushima Prefecture announced the result of cumulative radiation exposure in the month of November 2011 for the pre-school children and pregnant women in the city. One child was found with 0.66 millisievert of radiation exposure, which would be 7.92 millisieverts for the annual cumulative exposure, a relatively high figure.
I’m not really sure that’s how German people who donated to the German Red Cross for the disaster relief for the March 11 earthquake/tsunami wanted the money to be spent.
The library and the nursery school are for people evacuated from Kawauchi-mura in a planned evacuation zone to Koriyama City. Koriyama City is in high-radiation “nakadori” (middle third) of Fukushima Prefecture, where pre-schoolers were found with 0.11 millisievert external radiation in one month in November 2011, with the maximum 0.66 millisievert. Certainly not a place where any nursery school should be.
But the donation from Germany was used to build a facility to keep the villagers from Kawauchi-mura in Koriyama City together.
(The photo is the German embassy official Claus Eilrich with Kawauchi-mura’s village chief in the tape-cutting ceremony.)
From Kyodo News (1/6/2012):
A facility with the library room and the nursery school opened on January 6 in the temporary housing in Koriyama City in Fukushima Prefecture where the residents from Kawauchi-mura lives after having evacuated from their home after the nuclear accident. The facility was built with the money of about 40 million yen (about 408,000 euro, US$520,000) donated via the German Red Cross.
– Soldier in Trouble for Praising Ron Paul on National TV (ABC News, Jan 5, 2012):
Rep. Ron Paul likes to silence the GOP rivals who criticize his foreign policy as “dangerous” by reminding them that he receives more financial support from military personal than all the other candidates combined.
But the Army is now investigating whether a 28-year old reservist breached military protocol when he praised Paul’s foreign policy positions on national television during a Paul rally Tuesday night.

– Belarus: Browsing Foreign Websites a Misdemeanor (Library of Congress):
(Dec. 30, 2011) On December 21, 2011, the governmental portal dedicated to official publication of laws and other legal acts issued in the Republic of Belarus published Law No. 317-3 of November 25, 2011, on Amendments to the Code of Administrative Violations and the Procedural Code of the Republic of Belarus. (National Law Internet Portal [in Russian] (last visited Dec. 27, 2011).)
As stated in an explanatory note published together with the Law, this act was issued to implement the Decree of the Belarusian President of February 1, 2010, on Improvements to the Usage of the National Segment of the Internet. The newly published Law imposes restrictions on visiting and/or using foreign websites by Belarusian citizens and residents. Under this new Law, the violation of these rules is recognized as a misdemeanor and is punished by fines of varied amounts, up to the equivalent of US$125. (Id.)
The Law requires that all companies and individuals who are registered as entrepreneurs in Belarus use only domestic Internet domains for providing online services, conducting sales, or exchanging email messages. It appears that business requests from Belarus cannot be served over the Internet if the service provider is using online services located outside of the country. The tax authorities, together with the police and secret police, are authorized to initiate, investigate, and prosecute such violations. (Id.)
This is the (not so) new MEGA-trend according to Gerald Celente:
People do not want to know the truth! They rather die!
(I heard from a M.D., who practices alternative medicine, that 90 % of sick people would rather die, than to change their diet and get well.)
From the article:
“I am not courageous, I don’t have an ability to take action, and I’m not smart.”
I agree with you lady, you are definetily NOT ‘smart’ …
… you are much more than that, you are INTELLIGENT and that is a dangerous place to be in a society, where everybody else is only ‘smart’, looking for their own profit, advantage and survival and gives a damn about everybody else.
And you are as courageous as possible for a human being being surrounded by dumb sheep.
Maybe you will have to change your ‘environment’.
– Guest Post: “I Cannot Talk About Radiation With Anyone” (EX-SKF, Jan. 4, 2012):
(UPDATE: I have her original Japanese writing in my Japanese blog, here. Share it with your Japanese friends.)
A reality in Japan from one of my Japanese blog readers.
From what I hear and read, she is not alone at all, and she doesn’t even live in Fukushima. More she tries to do to protect people she cares – family, friends – people think she’s crazy.
She may not be eloquent or sophisticated as Ms. Numauchi, but she is just as sincere in her fear and courage (though she says she’s not courageous).
From the reader “Nectarina”, from her original Japanese writing sent to me:
I am a housewife living in Aichi Prefecture with my husband. I was born in Shikoku. My life completely changed in 2011. Before the nuclear plant accident, I enjoyed my hobby (crafts) and taking a walk on the beach. But after March 11, I don’t feel like doing any of that, because I am afraid. How long can I remain healthy? Will something happen again tomorrow?
What’s been sad about the nuclear accident, radiation:
My husband, whom I shared the same values and whom I trusted, has changed. When I try to talk to him about the nuclear plant accident, the color leaves his face and he becomes angry. When we had a big fight, I asked him why. He said “I don’t want to know. If I knew I wouldn’t be able to work”. My husband puts a lot of energy in his work, so I suppose he wouldn’t be able to cope. So, even when I learn about some horrible news I cannot tell my husband. I deal with it by crying when I’m alone.
My husband resents it when I try to store safe food items like old rice. He thinks anything that’s being sold in the marketplace is safe, and thinks I’m crazy. Because I don’t want to argue with him, I use my savings to buy food when there is not enough money for [safe] food.
My husband approves of the wide-area disposal of contaminated debris. His reason is that the disaster-affected areas alone cannot dispose all of the debris. It doesn’t occur to him that the debris may be contaminated with radiation. I believe he’s wrong, and I cry the tears of misery.
He doesn’t care about food or drinks, and doesn’t appreciate my effort to make sure of the safety of the food I buy.
My mother back in Shikoku doesn’t understand at all when I tell her about the danger of radiation-contaminated food. She says I’m too nervous and it’s too tiresome. She believes TV more than me, her daughter, and thinks I’ve gone crazy.
I have a friend in Fukushima. I told him a number of times to leave Fukushima, but was dismissed. He is still young, single and healthy, and able to move anywhere, but he says he doesn’t want to leave his home and his family. We have become distant as the result, as I don’t know what to say to him any more, who is like a total stranger now.
And My sister. She’s been married for 5 years, and she became pregnant before the nuclear plant accident. During her pregnancy I wanted to tell her to be careful with food and to wear a mask. But my sister didn’t care at all about the nuke accident, and I feared that by telling the truth she might be shocked and that might affect her baby. So I couldn’t say a word. I felt I was a coward not telling the truth. But I bought a teddy bear as a present for the new baby. I prayed every day to the teddy bear to protect the baby.
But 7th month into the pregnancy, the baby suddenly stopped moving. The baby was dead, and had to be aborted. It was a late child-bearing, so I know it’s not necessarily because of the radiation. But I think it’s wrong if you cannot bear a child safely.
Afterwords, my sister told me that she had recovered and was now back to work. I thought the future was more important than the past, and plucked up my courage and told her to be careful with food she ate. My sister hasn’t contacted me since. Just like my mother, she must have thought I was crazy. Or she was shocked. I failed to make her understand, but I’m not regretting that I told her.
What’s been good:
– #Radiation in Japan: It’s All How You Define Radiation, and Koriyama Defines it “Out” (EX-SKF, Jan. 4, 2012):
It is just a matter of how you define the problem, and Koriyama City in Fukushima Prefecture, in the high-radiation “Nakadori” region, has decided to “define out” the problem by drawing the radiation contour map of the city with a new set of color schemes so that people will feel “safe and secure” looking at such “low” radiation levels.
After all, the nuclear accident is “over”, remember?
The map used to have 1.49 microsievert/hour as maximum, in red color. Now, in the new version of the map that accompanies the Koriyama City’s official decon plan, 45 microsieverts/hour is the maximum in red color. 1.5 microsievert/hour area is now in a calming, safe-looking extremely light blue.
Would the residents of Koriyama fall for this trick? Probably yes.
The map from the “Koriyama City Renewal Decontamination Plan version 1” issued in December 2011 (page 5):
And here’s the map in August, showing maximum 1.49 microsievert/hour area in red:
– Japan to Stop Using SPEEDI to Decide Whether to Instruct Residents to Take Potassium Iodide Pills (EX-SKF, Jan. 4, 2012):
Instead, the decision will be made using the air radiation levels and the water levels inside the nuclear reactors.
In other words, when (if) they do distribute the pills to citizens who may be affected by a nuclear accident, it may be too late. If the last year is any indication, such data will be released several weeks to several months after a nuclear accident happens.
As to the water levels inside the reactors, it’s a joke. TEPCO and NISA insisted there was water inside the Reactor Pressure Vessels until mid May.
But no matter, that’s what the Nuclear Safety Commission under Dr. Haruki “Detarame” Madarame has decided and is duly reported by NHK.
NHK conveniently omits the now-known fact that the SPEEDI simulation data was there from the beginning. The politicians and the bureaucrats, in their petty turf war, couldn’t make any use of it. They even had three sets of simulation from three different entities – the Ministry of Education, the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency, and TEPCO, from the beginning of the accident. Everyone decided to drop the ball all at once.
From NHK News (1/4/2012):
東 京電力福島第一原子力発電所の事故で、放射性物質の広がりを予測するシステムが機能せず、甲状腺の被ばくを避けるヨウ素剤の取り扱いに混乱が生じたことか ら、国の原子力安全委員会は、ヨウ素剤の服用を指示するかどうかの判断に予測システムは使わないことを決め、空気中の放射線量など別の指標を導入すること になりました。
In the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant accident, the system to forecast the dispersion of radioactive materials didn’t function, causing the confusion as to what to do with the potassium iodide pills to avoid radiation exposure in the thyroid. So the Nuclear Safety Commission has decided not to use the system any more to instruct residents to take the pills; instead, the air radiation levels and other indicators will be used.
The people of Japan should have ‘exploded’ a long time ago!
MSM will never tell the truth about (low level) radiation.
– Farmers in Fukushima count the cost (Financial Times, Jan. 4, 2012):
It was a problem the Saito family had never faced in all their years of farming: what do you do with radioactive spinach?
A few weeks after Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant plunged into crisis on March 11, the Saitos were told their carefully cultivated spinach had been contaminated by radiation. But nobody told them what to do with the suddenly unsellable crop, says Kazuko Saito, who tills rice and vegetable fields near the Fukushima prefectural capital together with her husband and son.
