More than a year after a devastating earthquake and tsunami triggered a massive nuclear disaster, experts are warning that Japan isn't out of the woods yet and the worst nuclear storm the world has ever seen could be just one earthquake away from reality.
Reactor 4 -- and to a lesser extent Reactor 3 -- still hold large quantities of cooling waters surrounding spent nuclear fuel, all bound by a fragile concrete pool located 30 metres above the ground, and exposed to the elements.
The 1,535 spent fuel rods would become exposed to the air and would likely catch fire, with the most-recently added fuel rods igniting first.
The incredible heat generated from that blaze, Gundersen said, could then ignite the older fuel in the cooling pool, causing a massive oxygen-eating radiological fire that could not be extinguished with water.
"So the fear is the newest fuel could begin to burn and then we'd have a conflagration of the whole pool because it would become hotter and hotter. The health consequences of that are beyond where science has ever gone before," Gundersen told CTVNews.ca in an interview from his home in Vermont.
There are a couple of possible outcomes, Gundersen said.
Highly radioactive cesium and strontium isotopes would likely go airborne and "volatilize" -- turning into a vapour that could move with the wind, potentially travelling thousands of kilometres from the source.
The size of those particles would determine whether they remained in Japan, or made their way to the rest of Asia and other continents.
"And here's where there's no science because no one's ever dared to attempt the experiment," Gundersen said. "If it flies far enough it goes around the world, if the particles stay a little bigger, they settle in Japan. Either is awful."
Essentially, he said, Japan is sitting on a ticking time bomb.
The damaged Reactor 4 cooling pool was reinforced by workers who went in and "jury-rigged" it after the tsunami, but the structure still contains a massive amount of fuel, Gundersen said.
Reactor 3 has less fuel inside its cooling pool, but it has not been strengthened since the disaster and poses a greater risk of failing.
"Reactor 3 has a little less consequences but a little more risk, and Reactor 4 has more consequences but…a little less risk," he said.
Finding a fix
The solution, Gundersen said, is for the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) to immediately begin the process of transferring the fuel rods from the cooling pools to dry cask storage -- a massive and costly endeavour, but one he said is absolutely essential.
To even begin the removal process at Reactor 4, TEPCO would first have to construct a crane capable of lifting the 100-tonne fuel rod canister, since the original crane was destroyed in the disaster last year.
In order to do that, they would have to build a massive structure around the existing pool to support the new crane, which would then be used to lift the fuel rod canister from the water, down to the ground and into a steel and concrete dry-cask.
All this of course, has to be done in a highly contaminated area where workers must wear protective suits and limit their radiation exposure each day, adding time and expense to the process.
Still, with the consequences so high, Gundersen said there's no time to lose.
"This is a 'now' problem, this is not a 'let's-wait-until-we-get-the-cash-flow-from-the-Japanese-government' problem. The consequences of a 7 or 7.5 earthquake don't happen every day, but we know it happened last year so you have to anticipate that it will happen," Gundersen said.
‘Fate of the world' depends on Reactor 4
He's not alone in pressing the Japanese government to adopt a sense of urgency about the Reactor 4 dilemma.
Robert Alvarez, a former top adviser at the U.S. Department of Energy, also expressed concern in a letter to Akio Matsumura, a Japanese diplomat who has turned his focus to the nuclear calamity.
Matsumura had asked Alvarez about the risk associated with Reactor 4.
"The No. 4 pool is about 100 feet above ground, is structurally damaged and is exposed to the open elements," Alvarez said in his response. "If an earthquake or other event were to cause this pool to drain this could result in a catastrophic radiological fire involving nearly 10 times the amount of Cesium-137 released by the Chernobyl accident."
Mitsuhei Murata, Japan's former ambassador to Switzerland and Senegal, has also made it his mission to convince the UN and the world that urgent action is needed.
"It is no exaggeration to say that the fate of Japan and the whole world depends on No. 4 reactor," Murata said in a recent letter to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, in which he urged him to back efforts to address the problem.
Last week, Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda said most major threats have been eliminated and "cold shutdown" status had been achieved in December.
But Noda declined to comment directly on the risk posed by Reactor 4, only telling The Wall Street Journal's Asia edition that it was important to "remain vigilant."
"We have passed a situation where people have to run far away or evacuate," he said. "Ahead of us are time-consuming tasks like decontamination and decommissioning (of the plants). We will proceed with the utmost care."
Gundersen said the remaining challenges at the Fukushima Da-Ichi site are not technological. Everyone knows what needs to be done and how to do it, he said. The challenge lies, rather, in convincing Japan that action must be taken now.
That will require international pressure, as well as international investment, on a grand scale, he said.
"We're all in a situation of having to pray there's not an earthquake. And there's the other half of that, which is pray to God but row toward shore. And Tokyo's not really rowing toward shore right now," Gundersen said.

That is what the folks in the link above have done,
Would I be called the Grumbler? I would not want to be the Super Villain, the Grumbler sounds like a Villain name. I don't need a secret identity, I need to be accountable too...
Crab related Names - Crab Boy, Crabman, The Crab, Claws of Fury,
Attitude related - the Complainer, the Grumbler
Cat Related - The Cat, Super Cat, The Masked Cat, or maybe even the Purple Cat, Tigerman is a total inspiration too
Accounting related - The Auditor...
The list shall go on......
I've been thinkin' of this shit, for a While
Inspiration comes in many forms
The Quiet Confidence has to come from somewhere,
I was listnin' to CBC radio the other day, they were talking about Power through Humility and how it can lead to getting killed, this is seriously bothering me... if it is true, then the Super Villains really are in control and rubbing our noses in it, I am going to ignor their controlling powers and continue on to do what I feel is right, That will lead to less grumblin and more workin, actualizing and growth, and that is what I am lookin for,
Peace out fools, nothing is Black and White, everyone needs help and compassion, the Super Villains must get the care and nurturing that missed out on as a child, I'll warm up some formula!!

I understand this because I have studies the tools of this devil, I know how Bid-ness Works, I also know how government works, it's a fuckin joke! As an Accountant I am so very fuckin puzzled about the way votes are tallied. Diebold cannot be trusted because they have to maximize shareholder profit and can be motivated by money, I wonder how much this contract was worth to them... Fuck, I Digress, anyway that book was pissin me off so much I decided to stop reading it for a while and flip over to,Al makes me laugh, the forward in The Truth is written by annonomous, I wonder who it could be...?? haha Anyway, these books will complement each other very well, I made it to page 70 of the GW Lies Book, Man that guy lies alot, I think that is why he acts so stupid, so people won't expect that much of him, but that's just my guess... I wonder what kind of relationship he has with his daughters... I mean he does claim to up hold "Family" in the Male, Female and Kids relationship sence of the term... There are infact many different types of relationships in this world, to have a clear view of reality one must accept this... Blah Bla Bla, well, I do like the Footnotes in the GW Lies book,
the 9-11 Lies was just referenced with end notes, I didn't like that aspect, but it was very revealing, and I do I highly recommend it! Open yer Eyes Mutha Fuckas! American's should read this book, really, Lots of good questions in here, unfortunatly, time will tell the truth, and that will be a sad day! Read on muther Fuckers, and never stop reading, I don't care if you read Coultard, just give me something intelligent to argue against!

In an on-line commentary published on his website, Paul Weyrich, chairman of the Free Congress Foundation, said that he hopes Mr. Harper will use the next four years to replace Liberal-named judges who back same-sex marriage and abortion with appointees who are more to his liking.
"As has been the case in the United States, cultural Marxism largely has been foisted upon Canada by the courts," Mr. Weyrich wrote, drawing a parallel with the right-wing analysis of what ails America. "If judges who respect the Constitution were to be appointed, they would confirm that such rights are not to be found in that document. Sound familiar?"
Yet Mr. Weyrich, 61, a veteran of the U.S. culture wars, said that despite his hopes for a sharp right turn in Canada, radical change could take a long time. "The people of Canada have become so liberal and hedonistic that the public ethic in the country immediately could not be reversed. But with leadership, it may well be possible to change the public ethic."
Marx·ism Pronunciation Key (märk szm)n
The political and economic philosophy of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels in which the concept of class struggle plays a central role in understanding society's allegedly inevitable development from bourgeois oppression under capitalism to a socialist and ultimately classless society.
I do believe in a free education for all citizens of Canada, I think that it is the one tool that the Government should be able to provide.
he·don·ism P Pronunciation Key (h dn- zm)
Pursuit of or devotion to pleasure, especially to the pleasures of the senses.
Philosophy. The ethical doctrine holding that only what is pleasant or has pleasant consequences is intrinsically good.
Psychology. The doctrine holding that behavior is motivated by the desire for pleasure and the avoidance of pain.
Life is inherantly painful, but if one can keep a clear mind, and see what is really hapening, then that can make life less painful. You have to follow some steps to attain a clear mind, no drugs, no boozin it up! Life is a pretty great journy in and of itself, sometimes it feels bleek and hopeless, especially when Rosie O'Donnel comes on TV and says that Canada is supposed to be the USA's moral conscience, WTF is up with that. I used to enjoy the Rosie Show, but a position (as a Moral Objector??? WTF can I do, I cannot effect legislation in America, so all I do is tell americans how stupid they are, well, that doesent really fuckin work! I know it's because I'm such a jackass about the way I choose to say things, ah well) like that is one I do not want to have, I fight with fuckin American's quite enough about their shitass Ideals, it's like the Jerry Springer Show really, That show is a good example of what is bad in society I think, it happens in Canada too, so it is not limited to our southren neighbours. Where was I..... Drink More Coffee... Need to Stop, Must Clear Mind ,, Hummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Gore is warning us of the evil Primeminister Harpy, that wants to pluck Canada out of the Kyoto aggereement, I mean emissions are goin up, and global warming is great, soon there will be no atlantic canada, think of the savings!
"Hopefully that will not happen thanks to the minority victory," Gore said of Canada's involvement in Kyoto.
Gore believes the issue of the oilsands and the sway he contends the industry holds with Harper didn't garner news coverage during the election because "media concentration has taken a toll on democratic principles around the world, and Canada is no exception."

A live bin Laden, however, is a good boogyman with which to terrify the American public into slavishly believing our government is trying to protect them"
I knew that bin Laden Fool was dead, now someone inform the CIA! Haha, reminds me of what some Americans like to say to me, "Fuck your facts" hahaha Guess this is post 911 Dreamworld where anything can happen, dispite facts or whatnot. ya gotta keep em scared I guess, to remain overlord and remove people's freedoms you gotta make up shit to keep em afraid. It's called an Amygdala Hijack, when you are so emotional that you are not even thinkin straight. guess I live my life in an Amygdla Hijack!

And it's pretty scarry too, I'm glad that Canada didn't want any part of that, but now we are just another target really, I mean, the states has nukes pointed everywhere, so it's nothing new, I don't know if Canada does... I will have to look into that one.

Over at Vive Le Canada we get an awesome report on Jack Layton's performance in the Debate Lastnight, let's listen..."Jack Layton was the only candidate who answered questions directly and gave credible information about his party’s policies. While the Liberals and Conservatives talked about issues such as: day care, health care and long term care for seniors, Jack Layton reminded Canadians that it was the NDP party which forced the Liberals to pass a budget with social spending last winter." (by Kevin Parkinson) Ok, so that was cool, Layton is deffinatly the workin Man's man, I mean I aspire to be a workin man! and even if I continue in a state of brokeassedness for a few more weeks, at least I will know that I will be voting for a party that would like to see prosperity and fair treatment for all. Companies are really made up of a group of people called the "Share Holders", and they are not held accountable for the unethical actions of their companies. Private healthcare drives up the cost of Public healthcare and takes many good medical students out of the small pool of doctors for the rest of us. Indicating factors of a Country's Prosperity are it's educational system and Medical system, this is nothing new that I am saying here, just rehashing old shit, but it's kinda fun to put together, Like Shit Lego, What shall I make now! haha

The 14 Defining Characteristics Of Fascism (Modern Republicanism)
by Dr. Lawrence Britt
Dr. Lawrence Britt has examined the fascist regimes of G.W. Bush (USA), Hitler (Germany), Mussolini (Italy), Franco (Spain), Suharto (Indonesia) and several Latin American regimes. Britt found 14-defining characteristics common to each:
1. Powerful and Continuing Nationalism -
Fascist regimes tend to make constant use of patriotic mottos,
slogans, symbols, songs, and other paraphernalia. Flags are seen
everywhere, as are flag symbols on clothing and in public displays.
God bless magnetic ribbons.
2. Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights -
Because of fear of enemies and the need for security, the people in fascist regimes are persuaded that human rights can be ignored in certain cases because of "need." The people tend to look the other way or even approve of torture, summary executions, assassinations, long incarcerations of prisoners, etc.
3. Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause -
The people are rallied into a unifying patriotic frenzy over the need to eliminate a perceived common threat or foe: racial , ethnic or religious minorities; liberals; communists; socialists, terrorists, etc.
4. Supremacy of the Military -
Even when there are widespread domestic problems, the military is given a disproportionate amount of government funding, and the domestic agenda is neglected. Soldiers and military service are glamorized.
We have spent something along the lines of $1.6 Trillion dollars on the military and the war and we have not reduced terrorism one fraction of one percent with our efforts in Iraq. We have not made the country more secure, in fact, we are more at risk now than we ever have been thanks to Bush and his policies.
5. Rampant Sexism -
The governments of fascist nations tend to be almost exclusively
male-dominated. Under fascist regimes, traditional gender roles are made more rigid. Divorce, abortion and homosexuality are suppressed and the state is represented as the ultimate guardian of the family institution.
6. Controlled Mass Media -
Sometimes to media is directly controlled by the government, but in other cases, the media is indirectly controlled by government
regulation, or sympathetic media spokespeople and executives.
Censorship, especially in war time, is very common.
7. Obsession with National Security -
Fear is used as a motivational tool by the government over the masses.
Patriot Act. Do you know what kind of stuff is actually in that thing?
8. Religion and Government are Intertwined -
Governments in fascist nations tend to use the most common religion in the nation as a tool to manipulate public opinion. Religious rhetoric and terminology is common from government leaders, even when the major tenets of the religion are diametrically opposed to the government's policies or actions.
9. Corporate Power is Protected -
The industrial and business aristocracy of a fascist nation often are the ones who put the government leaders into power, creating a mutually beneficial business/government relationship and power elite.
10. Labor Power is Suppressed -
Because the organizing power of labor is the only real threat to a
fascist government, labor unions are either eliminated entirely, or
are severely suppressed.
Unions are being hit heavy. The general work force in America is under attack. Minimum wage being kept below poverty levels when it should be raised to match and reflect the standard cost of living increase. Contracts are biasly handed to government companies that are highly unqualified.
11. Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts -
Fascist nations tend to promote and tolerate open hostility to higher education, and academia. It is not uncommon for professors and other academics to be censored or even arrested. Free expression in the arts and letters is openly attacked.
Bush has cut funding 4 years straight for all arts programs nationwide.
12. Obsession with Crime and Punishment -
Under fascist regimes, the police are given almost limitless power to enforce laws. The people are often willing to overlook police abuses and even forego civil liberties in the name of patriotism. There is often a national police force with virtually unlimited power in fascist nations.
13. Rampant Cronyism and Corruption -
Fascist regimes almost always are governed by groups of friends and associates who appoint each other to government positions and use governmental power and authority to protect their friends from accountability. It is not uncommon in fascist regimes for national resources and even treasures to be appropriated or even outright stolen by government leaders.
Not one person in Bush's cabinet is qualified. Every single person Bush has employed has been because of friendship, not experience, not tallent, not qualifications, but friendship, and friendship alone. Which accounts for the drastic slide downward in everything concerning our countries vitality and progress.
14. Fraudulent Elections -
Sometimes elections in fascist nations are a complete sham. Other times elections are manipulated by smear campaigns against or even assassination of opposition candidates, use of legislation to control voting numbers or political district boundaries, and manipulation of the media. Fascist nations also typically use their judiciaries to manipulate or control elections.
We should all know by now this has happened twice in a row.
And there you have it, we're not heading toward a fascist state, we are one! Cheers!

I ask for the privilege of not being born. . .
not to be born until
You can assure me of a home
and a person to protect me,
and the right to live as long
as I am physically able to enjoy life. . .
not to be born until my body is precious
and people have ceased to exploit it
because it is cheap and plentiful.

I See this a new bus #81 that goes to some Hemlock Ravine place goin all the time with no one on it! What the Fuck is up with that! The bus system here in Halifax is good, I can't complain, it gets me to work every day, but it could be much better, I would hate to watch the 80 pass by on a nice Blizzardy day. They have bus ads now thanking people for using the Rickiddy ol bus system, well gee Shucks, Thanks fer noticin that I'ma brok ass mutha Fucka and cant afford my own Personal Gas Guzzlin SUV, hahaha!

1) THE GIFT OF LISTENING...
But you must REALLY listen. No interrupting, no daydreaming,
no planning your response. Just listening.
2) THE GIFT OF AFFECTION...
Be generous with appropriate hugs, kisses,
pats on the back and handholds.
Let these small actions demonstrate the love you have for family and
3) THE GIFT OF LAUGHTER...
Email funpages to your friends. Share articles and funny stories.
Your gift will say, 'I love to laugh with you.'
4) THE GIFT OF A WRITTEN NOTE...
It can be a simple 'Thanks for the help' note or a full sonnet.
A brief, handwritten note may be remembered for a lifetime,
and may even change a life.
5) THE GIFT OF A COMPLIMENT...
A simple and sincere, 'You look great in red,'
'You did a super job' or 'That was a wonderful meal'
can make someone's day.
6) THE GIFT OF A FAVOR...
Every day, go out of your way to do something kind.
7) THE GIFT OF SOLITUDE...
There are times when we want nothing better than to be left alone.
Be sensitive to those times
and give the gift of solitude to others.
8) THE GIFT OF A CHEERFUL DISPOSITION...
The easiest way to feel good is to
extend a kind word to someone,
really it's not that hard to say, 'Hello' or 'Thank You'."

This is a great article, I suggest you all take a read, a Paruse if you will, now stop driving your one person Ass all over town in your big Stinky SUV! I do not have a Vehicle, mainly because I am Poor, but that is ok, my conscience is clear about the pollution I spew, Reduce, Recycle, Re-use, Invest in Bike Lanes, invest in vehicles that produce less emissions, DEMAND that your vehicles produce less emissions, only drive when you need to.
If there is a Future, the people in the future will look back at us as fools, because we burned up all of our petrolium! There is not an endless supply in the desert like Shiek Abdul Opex would like you to think! Production is goin down and now it is time to tighten the belt and get down to fuckin business!

well, that is some mighty fine lyin' that the media did there, I knew that people would not want to have sex after they had just been through so much trauma. I feel pretty stupid for even tryin to believe that.
I hate the media that is owned by big corporations who control the government, yeah, this shit happens in Canada too. Really, when American Media says something, Canadian media should be there to say, "Wait a second here, that is not the truth", in this case, that was impossible because no one was allowed in, not even the relief that a lot of countries around the world sent, yet America, in all it's wisdom decided that the help was not needed.
Media, Will you ever stop Lyin to Me,
It's like Propoganda for the 21st Century!
I mean, if I was in that situation, getting the Necessities to everyone involved would be my first concern, and I suspect that there was more people looking for food than Plasma TV Looting, I suspect that this informnmation was created out of panic, Rumour, and a sprinkling racisim, cause it's not too difficult to make a white person scared of a black person, they murder and rape ya know! (vinnie hangs his head in shame for even considering that those rape stories were truth) This is just another lie propogated by the American Media to make the Government look, well... Not so bad, "Why arn't more people helping?" blame the Dangerous black man! People were dyin and could have been saved but, because america wants to hide it's BLACK eye, it wears an eye patch, yet the other eye is blind! How's that for some crazy analogy makin!
Additionally, Here is a great blog about this subject on the ...

This wonderful program is 41 minutes long, and well worth watching. It really pieces things together, Bet some of you will find it kinda "Michael Mooreish" in it's exposure of what is really going on. Don't let the Man keep you down, Fight The Power! Haha

Dang, I would expect better of Canadian corporations and people too! It's no surprize though, there are a lot of SUVs on the streets, Halifax Harbour (they are workin on that). But I think we are gettin better. There are the recycling people like me, who like to sepperate garbage. I'm glad homeless people can get a little money by collecting recyclables, that's a good thing. Yeah, a solar pannel on every building, thats what I wanna see! Why not wind mills atop high rises! Now thats an Idea! Rockit Like a Hurricane Bitches!

BURNT FOR ENERGY?
We need more food, not more shit to burn!
Decentralized farms woud help w/ distribution of foods because of foods perishable nature.
hopefull the agriculturalists will remember that Hemp is an important crop too, with many more uses than elephant grass.

"We're not the public service of Canada, we're not just another department. We are the Canadian Forces and our job is to be able to kill people."
- Rick Hillier, Canada's new Chief of Defence Staff
Listening to Mike Malloy, the afganistan invasion isn't going so well, that's not hard to believe, this war is a lie all around, and president Liar now must force his alies to help him out. I hope Canada does it right, that we help the people, and not hurt the people... Here's the Government of Canada's website dedicated to our Afganistan occupation. Don't let the Liberals touch that money, they will give it to an Advertising firm that does no work
