Europe in €2 trillion rescue bid (Telegraph, Oct. 15, 2011):

George Osborne has admitted for the first time that Britain may have to provide billions of pounds more to bail out the eurozone as part of €2 trillion international efforts to shore up the single currency bloc and revitalise the flagging global recovery.

G20 finance ministers, including the US Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, agreed in Paris during the weekend that the International Monetary Fund (IMF) should consider using its resources to backstop a massive eurozone-led rescue effort. Under the terms of its membership, the UK will be liable for 4.2pc of any funds provided by the IMF. The IMF has $390bn available.

Britain has currently a maximum $20bn commitment to the IMF, and has pledged about £10bn to support the eurozone through the IMF and a bi-lateral loan to Ireland.

Germany and France are spearheading a multi-trillion dollar “shock and awe” programme expected to be agreed next weekend and presented the following week at the G20 summit in Cannes.

Developing Story: People Arrested for Trying to Close Citibank Accounts (Gather, Oct. 15, 2011):

More ridiculous arrests coming out of New York today, as Citibank proves it’s just as bad, or even worse than Bank of America in how it treats its customers. Earlier today, about two dozen people formed a queue inside the Citibank building in order to close their accounts as a part of the Occupy Wall Street protests. Instead of allowing them to take their money elsewhere, the genius managers and security people in charge locked them inside and had them arrested.

Meet The Guy Who Snitched On Occupy Wall Street To The FBI And NYPD

Meet the Guy Who Snitched on Occupy Wall Street to the FBI and NYPD (GAWKER, Oct 15, 2011):

The Occupy Wall Street protests have been going on for a month. And it seems the FBI and NYPD have had help tracking protesters’ moves thanks to a conservative computer security expert who gained access to one of the group’s internal mailing lists, and then handed over information on the group’s plans to authorities and corporations targeted by protesters.

Since the Occupy Wall Street protest began on September 17, New York security consultant Thomas Ryan has been waging a campaign to infiltrate and discredit the movement. Ryan says he’s done contract work for the U.S. Army and he brags on his blog that he leads “a team called Black Cell, a team of the most-highly trained and capable physical, threat and cyber security professionals in the world.” But over the past few weeks, he and his computer security buddies have been spending time covertly attending Occupy Wall Street meetings, monitoring organizers’ social media accounts, and hanging out with protesters in Lower Manhattan.

As part of their intelligence-gathering operation, the group gained access to a listserv used by Occupy Wall Street organizers called September17discuss. On September17discuss, organizers hash out tactics and plan events, conduct post-mortems of media appearances, and trade the latest protest gossip. On Friday, Ryan leaked thousands of September17discuss emails to conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart, who is now using them to try to smear Occupy Wall Street as an anarchist conspiracy to disrupt global markets.

What may much more alarming to Occupy Wall Street organizers is that while Ryan was monitoring September17discuss, he was forwarding interesting email threads to contacts at the NYPD and FBI, including special agent Jordan T. Loyd, a member of the FBI’s New York-based cyber security team.

Media Concealed Leaked TEPCO Report: 120 Billion Becquerels of Plutonium, 7.6 Trillion Becquerels of Neptunium (Decays Into Plutonium) Released In First 100 Hours

News: Media knew 1.2×10^12 Bq of plutonium was released to the air in the first 100 hours (Fukushima Diary, Oct. 14, 2011):

20110606008-2

The Report which Tepco made for press conference on 6/6/2011 was leaked on the internet.

According to the report, Tepco already announced that Plutonium 238, 239, 240, 241 was released to the air in the first 100 hours after the earthquake.

It reads the amount is 120 BILLION Becquerels.

When it comes to Np-239, it is 7,600 BILLION Becquerels.

It is possible to assume a certain amount of them have flown to around Tokyo.

Knowing the fact, Media kept concealing the risk for 7 months and kept people exposed.

Meet Americas 10 Highest Paid Bosses – The $600 Million Dollar Men – The Forbes List Of The Wealthiest 25 CEOs

In light of the Occupy Wall Street demonstration taking place in downtown New York- and those of similar persuasions across the U.S.- the country’s richest one per cent are a very unpopular group right about now.

Making for more trouble, Forbes just released the list of the wealthiest 25 CEOs, and their earning numbers are astronomical.

The amount of money that the country’s top ten wealthiest CEOs make in one year is enough to pay the salary of 18,330 ‘average’ Americans.

Banks turn to demolition of foreclosed properties to ease housing-market pressures (Washington Post, Oct. 13, 2011):

Cleveland — The sight of excavators tearing down vacant buildings has become common in this foreclosure-ravaged city, where the housing crisis hit early and hard. But the story behind the recent wave of demolitions is novel — and cities around the country are taking notice.

A handful of the nation’s largest banks have begun giving away scores of properties that are abandoned or otherwise at risk of languishing indefinitely and further dragging down already depressed neighborhoods.

The banks have even been footing the bill for the demolitions — as much as $7,500 a pop. Four years into the housing crisis, the ongoing expense of upkeep and taxes, along with costly code violations and the price of marketing the properties, has saddled banks with a heavy burden. It often has become cheaper to knock down decaying homes no one wants.

The demolitions in some cases have paved the way for community gardens, church additions and parking lots. Even when the result is an empty lot, it can be one less pockmark. While some widespread demolitions could risk hollowing out the urban core of struggling cities such as Cleveland, advocates say that the homes being targeted are already unsalvageable and that the bulldozers are merely “burying the dead.”

PositiveID Corporation Receives VeriChip Order for Use With Israeli Military (MarketWatch, Oct. 11, 2011):

DELRAY BEACH, Fla., Oct 11, 2011 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) — PositiveID Corporation (“PositiveID” or “Company”) PSID 0.00% , a developer of medical technologies for diabetes management, clinical diagnostics and bio-threat detection, announced today that it has received an order for its VeriChip(TM) microchip to be used for disaster preparedness and emergency management in Israel by an integration partner.

The VeriChip radio frequency identification (RFID) microchip was cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2004 for patient identification. The VeriChip can also be used to assist in the management of emergency situations and disaster recovery in conjunction with a customized camera capable of receiving both RFID scanned data and GPS data wirelessly, and a Web-enabled database for gathering and storing information and images captured during emergency response operations.

The Company’s integration partner intends to provide the microchips to the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), the State of Israel’s military force.

Big Brother: Government Cameras In Your Car?

Gov’t cameras in your car? E-toll patent hints at Big Brotherish future (MSNBC, Oct. 14, 2011):

Imagine that you couldn’t drive on major highways without agreeing to put a camera in your car — one that could film either the occupants or the vehicle’s surroundings and transmit the images back to a central office for inspection.

You don’t have to read George Orwell to conjure up such an ominous surveillance state. You just have to skim through filings at the U.S. Patent Office.

It’s hard to imagine Americans would tolerate such a direct, Big-Brotherish intrusion. But they might not notice if the all-seeing cameras were tucked inside another kind of government tracking technology that millions of Americans have already invited into their cars.

Kapsch TrafficCom AG, an Austrian company that just signed a 10-year contract to provide in-car transponders such as the E-Z Pass to 22 electronic highway toll collection systems around the U.S., recently filed a patent on technology to add multi-function mini-cameras to their toll gadgets. Today, transponders are in about 22 million cars around the U.S. Adding inward and outward facing cameras to the gadgets would create surveillance capabilities far beyond anything government agencies have tried until now.

The stated reason for an inward-pointing camera is to verify the number of occupants in the car for enforcement of HOV and HOT lanes. The outward-pointing camera could be used for the same purpose, helping authorities enforce minimum occupant rules against drivers who aren’t carrying transponders.

Gaddafi’s son captured, Tripoli celebrates (Reuters, Oct 13, 2011):

TRIPOLI: Celebratory bursts of gunfire and fireworks lit up the skies over Tripoli early on Thursday as word spread that Libyan government fighters had captured Muammar Gaddafi’s son Mo’tassim in Sirte.

The capture of the deposed leader’s national security adviser, and the first member of the Gaddafi family, is a big boost to Libya’s new rulers whose forces are still battling pro-Gaddafi fighters in his home town of Sirte.

National Transitional Council (NTC) officials told Reuters Mo’tassim was captured on Wednesday after he tried to escape the battle-torn city in a car with a family.

“He was arrested today in Sirte,” Colonel Abdullah Naker, head of the Tripoli Revolutionary Council, told Reuters. Other NTC sources said Mo’tassim was taken to Benghazi where he was held and questioned at the Boatneh military camp. He was uninjured but exhausted.

As news of the capture spread, hundreds of people gathered in the capital’s old city, singing, waving Libya’s new flag and shouting “God is greatest”.

Iran’s alleged Mexican hitman was US drugs informant (Guardian, Oct. 12, 2011):

The Iranian plot the US government says aimed to murder Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to Washington allegedly fell down because a member of the Mexican Zeta drug cartel hired to carry out the job for $1.5m was actually a US informant.

The informant told the Drugs Enforcement Agency (DEA) in May that he had been contacted by alleged Iranian agent Manssor Arbabsiar. They held several meetings in Mexico which were taped. Methods discussed reportedly included a targeted assassination and a bomb.

Arbabsiar flew to Mexico in late September allegedly to serve as a guarantee that full payment would follow the assassination. The Mexican government has confirmed that it denied him entry and put him on a flight with a stopover in New York, where he was arrested.

Radioactive Fukushima Rice Headed For Restaurants And Schools … And Consumers In Tokyo!

Fukushima Government to Push Fukushima Rice in Restaurants and Schools (EX-SKF, Oct. 13, 2011):

Now that the rice from all districts and cities in Fukushima Prefecture are declared “safe” (i.e. below the provisional safety limit of 500 becquerels/kg of radioactive cesium), the Fukushima prefectural government is gearing up for the PR campaign it plans to mount to promote Fukushima rice in restaurants and school lunches and to consumers in the Tokyo metropolitan area.

From NHK Japanese (10/13/2011):

福島県が進めてきた収穫後のコメの放射性物質の検査が終わり、コメの作付けが行われたすべての市町村で国の基準を下回って出荷が認められました。福島県は、今後、コメの安全性を消費者にピーアールするなど風評被害対策を強化することにしています。

Fukushima Prefecture finished testing for radioactive materials in harvested rice. In all districts where rice was planted, the level of radioactive materials was lower than the national safety standard, and the shipment of rice is now allowed. Fukushima is planning to counter “baseless rumors” by appealing the safety of the rice to consumers.

Tokyo’s Setagaya Officials: Radiation Spike Unlikely From Fukushima

Tokyo’s Setagaya Says Radiation Spike Unlikely From Fukushima (Bloomberg, Oct. 13, 2011):

Tokyo’s Setagaya district officials said an investigation today of a “high” radiation reading in the area indicates it may not have come from the crippled Fukushima reactors.

The district in the western part of the capital said earlier today it will expand tests in 258 locations after a local resident alerted authorities to a radiation spike that required partially blocking off a sidewalk to the public.

Investigators entered an unoccupied house alongside the sidewalk and radiation readings led them to remove floorboards where they found a case of unidentified substances in bottles, public broadcaster NHK reported.

“When a dosimeter was brought close to the bottles the radiation readings exceeded the limit of the device,” Setagaya Mayor Nobuto Hosaka said in a press conference carried by NHK. No further details were given on the possible contents of the bottles.

The reading was more than 30 microsieverts per hour, NHK reported, which equates to a dose of 157.7 millisieverts per year, or more than 150 times the internationally recommended safety level for the general public, according to a Science Ministry formula.

The discovery follows a flurry of reports this week on a rise in radiation readings in Tokyo and Yokohama, indicating fallout from the Fukushima nuclear disaster has formed “hot spots” in the cities.

Man Fined £75 For Brushing Pet Dog

Man fined £75 for brushing pet dog (Telegraph, Oct. 10, 2011):

Roy Wyre, 66, received the fine after walking his dog Spencer in Nottingham last Wednesday.

Mr Wyre, a former security guard, was ordered to pay £75 for littering after brushing the animal and leaving some of its fur lying on the ground.

The incident happened in Harvey Hadden playing fields near the city centre on Wednesday afternoon.

Mr Wyre, who was wearing a high-visibility uniform at the time, was initially approached on suspicion of impersonating a police officer.

He was questioned about his clothing by a community protection officer, who later issued Mr Wyre with a fine for dropping dog fur in a public place.

The pensioner, from Bilborough in Nottinghamshire, has since received an apology from Nottingham City Council. His littering fine was also cancelled.

More than 60 years ago, in his “Foundation” series, the science fiction novelist Isaac Asimov invented a new science — psychohistory — that combined mathematics and psychology to predict the future.

Now social scientists are trying to mine the vast resources of the Internet — Web searches and Twitter messages, Facebook and blog posts, the digital location trails generated by billions of cellphones — to do the same thing.

The most optimistic researchers believe that these storehouses of “big data” will for the first time reveal sociological laws of human behavior — enabling them to predict political crises, revolutions and other forms of social and economic instability, just as physicists and chemists can predict natural phenomena.
