AFP, July 11, 2014 (emphasis added): Japan braced for more aftershocks of giant 2011 quake — Seismologists said [the M6.8] earthquake that struck near Japan’s shuttered Fukushima nuclear site early Saturday was an aftershock of the tremor that sparked 2011′s deadly tsunami, and warned of more to come. [...] Seismologist Yasuhiro Yoshida  of the Japan Meteorological Agency said it was a delayed tectonic reaction to the 9.0-magnitude quake which left the Fukushima nuclear power plant in a meltdown crisis [...]

Inquisitr, July 12, 2014: [...] experts warn that this is just one aftershock of several to come from 2011′s killer quake [...] According to Japan Today, seismologists warn that the Fukushima earthquake was a delayed reaction to the monster quake from 2011. Seismologist Yasuhiro Yoshida of the Japan Meteorological Agency said, “There are fears that relatively large earthquakes will occasionally occur in the ocean area where aftershocks of the great earthquake continue [...] The aftershock activity has been steadily declining on a long-term basis. But aftershocks, accompanied by tsunamis, will still occur.” Yoshida mentioned that aftershocks could occur in the next two weeks [...]

IRIB, July 12, 2014: Experts warn of quake aftershocks in Japan — Experts have warned that Japan’s northeastern coast, where the Fukushima nuclear power plant lies, is prone to more aftershocks of the huge 2011 earthquake. The warning came after a quake measuring 6.8 on the Richter scale hit near the Fukushima nuclear site on Saturday morning.

      Yahoo News is reporting that over a 4 hour period of demolition work on unit 3 in August 2013, 4 trillion becquerels of contamination were disbursed into the air. Monitoring stations at Futaba, Namie and at the plant were used to make the estimate. It was estimated that a radiation rate of .04 bq/cm was deposited on nearby lands. Plant monitoring for the related dates at Fukushima Daiichi didn’t show significant changes to the monitoring posts. So far there has been no explanation how such a massive release could happen at the plant without drastically changing the monitoring posts on site.

    Many thanks, Proton, for the reminder of the very moment that atomic power died.
    What we are fighting now is what the economists term a "dead cat bounce" as the atomic power industry attempts to right the ship, and steer a new course.
    Atomic plants really ARE atom bombs just waiting to go off.
    Even their design flaws have design flaws.
    MOX in Reactor3 spread enough plutonium over the Earth to kill us all.

    Where is the corium, eh, TEPCO?

    Certainly the corium is NOT inside containment.
    But you still won't say where the cores are, will you?
    Any one of these cores lost to nature could cause the collapse of the Pacific Ocean Ecosystem.
    And you have 3 lost cores!

      * re: "atomic bombs waiting to go off." … pre-positioned radioactive dirty bombs at the very least …

      and the fact is: atom bombed sites are largely cleared of the long-lived nasties: cesium, strontium, plutonium … by the blast itself …. aerosolized particulate matter scattered to the four winds and high into the atmosphere … A spent fuel pool fire scenario spreads much more massive quantities of the deadly isotopes to a surrounding area, which dose will linger in the soil, in the biota, in the local memory for much longer …

      A city exists today around the blast sites at both Hiroshima and Nagasaki … no city will ever bloom again at the Chernobyl Site, or at Futuba on the Tohoku Coast, no matter how many millions of bags of radioactive dirt they plan to bulldoze, bag up and leave around to leach back out, its terrible poisons … or burn them up and send them back via the jet stream to where they came from …

    The latest sky damage is unbelievable, as the Cesium, and other metallic ELEments in our near future atmospheric water droplet configuration reflection/refraction gets worse, light is going to behave very differently in our atmospheric QED.
    More quakes are only going to add to the issues.
    K line spectral Yellow emission is diminished already, and soon the plants will begin to suffer, and sea/aquatic plants dependent on penetrating sunlight are going to be in the dark at much less depths. Yet one more issue were going to have depleting Oxygen at an alarming rate. This is screwing up signals, soon conventional TV antennas may not work very well, and not long before satellite, and microwave bands are effected. There goes all the latest high tech toys right out the window. I fear this will cause even bigger threats to our energy grids, and anything vulnerable to solar X flare activity. Our current lameness is going to cost Human kind dearly.

        After a major earthquake, the aftershock frequency and strength data distribution are fairly compelling: A nine quake would tend to generate say one eight within twelve months, ten sevens, a hundred sixes etc. …

        Now it is three years on … still after quaking … but new quake stresses always building, building on other faults … on this fault …

        On Topic: GE planned its assault on the biosphere with nuclear reactors in the fifties, long before Alfred Wegener's original "plate tectonics" theory became widely accepted, in the 1960's, which should have put the kibosh on GE's plans to nuclearize Japan… But this rogue corporation (in spite of the cute little brown-eyed girl) always maintained a cavalier attitude about machines it sold: "What do we care what our customer does with our product after we sell it to them? It's none of your concern!!!" (directed at the honest technician …. shades of "put on your management hat."

      I heard that too, and had to wonder is there no time limit for aftershocks,the suggestion is laughable and absurd. Must be TepCo or the Japanese Government putting that out there. An Aftershock,how preposterous and if the area is so prone surely it should not be repopulated as another layer of DEADLY radiation is guaranteed,by their own logic. Perhaps it something they are going to use as Plant Radiation Leakage Continues to skyrocket up and blame it on Tremors or something?

          Aftershocks YEARS later is something I never even heard of before they started doing it with Fukushima. Maybe they just know that the Earth was cracked so badly, that it will keep cracking, so calling it "aftershocks" takes away any calling to explain it or to prepare for perhaps the inevitable. Maybe it's just ONE of the many reasons that living in northern Japan has become hazardous to life.

          There is a set of aftershocks of prescribed sizes that regularly occur for each major earthquake.
          There was such a schedule published for the 3/11 EQ.
          My guess is that when the EQ happened the other day, Yoshida went back to the list, and saw a gap into which the current EQ fit nicely.
          He probably also noticed that some of the larger aftershocks on the list haven't occurred, and put out the warning.

          There were many funny things about the 3/11 EQ that didn't add up.
          The lack of aftershocks, and the lack of structural damage prior to the tsumani were just two of them.

            Really? And maybe you are right, but in the past, aftershocks always seemed to be very UN-predictable — how large and/or when, But you say that they published a SCHEDULE? Maybe they did do that, but it sounds wrong, fishy.

            Also, there was such a relatively small gap between the earthquake and the tsunami (an hour or two? — I don't know,) that no one could possibly measure damage in the interim. And they did seem very intent on blaming the damage to the NPP's on the tsunami, not the earthquake, as a pretext for NOT strengthening anti-earthquake standards!

            This is all, yes, fishy, or "funny," as you put it. But so many stats seem to be made up as they go along.

    The Japanese government will encourage people to move back into unsafe areas even knowing the increased potential for significant earthquakes exists. I wish the Japanese people would have a national strike against the re-populating of those areas and the re-opening of nuclear facilities. The whole country needs to do something that the world's media cannot ignore.

      Moving back to earthquake-prone areas? How and when an earthquake strikes is still a "maybe." But moving back is certain death with the radioactivity! If not for everyone currently (that can be a quick process or a slow, debilitating one,) then their children and grandchildren. Will they even HAVE viable grandchildren?

      Yes, we wish…. it's also hard to say what other people are or aren't in a position to do. There is an interview on fairewinds/org with a Japanese woman who has been back and forth, and she said that people are being forced back to their homes in dangerous areas or they lose their living stipends. And a lawsuit to try to at least evacuate children from those areas was thrown out of court without even being tried.

      I don't know what people forced to choose between no money or no health do. Even at the time of the French Revolution (for example,) the culture as a whole may have lacked bread, but there were still young men healthy and strong, not tied down, living by their wits, to mount an opposition. In Japan, a land weighed down with familial obligations and declining health, don't know what people are in a position to do these days.

      What "should" happen (if/when it could) of course, is a mothers' march about "You're killing our children!" But if/when it did happen, we probably would not hear about it anyway.

            We wil suffer from the ever waged wars of uninitiated spermlings, who can only project into the world who they are – war mongering immature, aggressive, goal oriented, territorial, competitive, hierarchy forming nuisances, who will plague us with their drama forever unless male initiation becomes a cultural institution again. Before the non initiated war lords took over some 6000 years ago there were no wars for 30.000 years. Japan is an example of a dysfunctional male society, which are naturally death oriented – as long as the males are not initiated, means reconnected to life, to the planet, they will take us down, and women and children and animals suffering. ENOUGH !

            I also see that all the earthquakes and other geological disturbances are a result of the growing and heating up earth. We are moving through the galactic equator and are picking up particle bombardment (neutrinos ?). All celestial bodies are rapidly growing/heating up right now.

              homolumina, VERY interesting that you brought up about moving through the galactic equator and the planet heating up. There is apparently research that OTHER planets are heating up, too, not just Earth. But I still in no way, shape, or form, let the climate disruption issue rest just on the the backs of natural processes. In fact, it seems that anything/everything that could go wrong with the natural universe is "capitalized on" and made way worse with the likes of geoengineering, fracking, nuclear poisoning, the Gulf oil disaster, and the like.

                P.S Unclear why you keep harping on initiation, however. Brutal cultures have rituals at puberty which may socialize young men, also bring them closer to nature, but do not necessarily dispel war at all. On the other hand, a sound humane upbringing will put aggression into context and make for a better adult whether there are any rituals at all.

                Thus I wonder if your obsession is just a diversion. (Just wondering….)

                Regarding the initiation issue: I am repeating it over and over because it is a big piece in the puzzle as of why we are at where we are at; this is a question often asked in this forum, when people for all the right reasons in the world do not understand how other human beings could bring us to the edge of extinction – it is a key information, a root cause. I am bringing it up because I really want us to be able to survive as a species and it is a key – without initiating males we will not make it.

                  Respectfully, MF that statement, as well as the Doctor's, make in reality little sense.

                  MF, matriarchy is not about reproduction. It may have implications in a view of reproduction, but its extent is no further than that.

                  And, Dr. I hope you've seen enough of my posts to understand that what I say is simply an attempt to place the terms in a proper perspective and is in no way a remark about you. But a system which is lacking balance, be it one or the other, has fatal flaws. Balance is the key. It may be because for most of the viewpoint is from a dominate patriarchal structure that we somewhat naturally view its opposite as 'good'.

                  When one looks at such a symbol as the yin/yang, is it intended to be broken down into its components, or as a single unit? Entertaining the components may be necessary to achievement of unity, but once that has been accomplished they can be disregarded. I totally agree, and feel that it's silly and unintelligent that in patriarchal manifestations we've seen on the order of half of the contribution and insight of humanity might be lost. I will say, too, that I believe the 'feminine' (a really loaded word…) aspect of ourselves might make me believe that culturally oriented to that aspect might be more beneficial. But the fact is that cultures have been successful by either definition, and Homolumina's initiations are attempts to attain balance. I might think them unnecessary in a culture that has balance as its goal.

Then into Health Physics. Such a person in Health Physics monitors the workers to make sure that they haven't become too contaminated with radioactivity to continue working. It's a dangerous job that no one would want if they hadn't been brain washed by higher ups into believing that their job is safe.

                    He probably has no education. So pity him. He is no Ph.D. in nuclear science. He just reads dosimeters. It sounded to me that someone like Rod Adams had fed him some information in order to say something. But Moe Foe had little understanding of the field.

                    Hopefully, he will read something here and leave his job. We know from Plutopia that workers in the nuclear field love their pay checks and tune out the danger involved.

People lived in initiatory cultures, where both, men and women, lived within their natural context as manifested in the body. Men and women were equals, but very different. When you look at the intact Aborigine culture or even ancient kingdoms you can see that they lived out in their social structures the body model – you can say that biology determines sociology. That sums it up nicely. Non initiated, aggressive warlords have taken over some 6000 years ago and opposed life ever since in order to stay in power. The key is the initiation of males who are naturally disconnected from life. Once reconnected through a transformative experience in a fixed sequence (body shows it) they cannot turn against life anymore. That is all it takes to change everything. Initiation is mandatory for alpha males who push into leadership. Only together as equals we can co-create a world that is whole. And for that males need to be initiated.

                    But I am against secular or pagan initiation rites. I believe in freedom of religion. No one should have the right to impose their belief system on another person including an initiation rite.

                      Cherokees used to accept anyone into their tribe including their enemies.

                      Every person is unique and grouping people because of the actions of one person is treating people like objects. I though zogerke expressed this very well the other day. Every person is unique. In the US it is called guilt by association, and there are safeguards in the court system to protect individuals from guilt by association. Grouping individuals can lead to irrational hatred. I've known cared about many Muslims. But I don't want to give up my own faith or be ruled by Sharia Law or to live under a theocracy, because I don't find rulers as a whole very fair no matter what their persuasion. But as individuals there are many admirable people. I am only interested in caring about individuals. That's why I am against initiation rites imposed by anyone.

                      I just mentioned that there are matrilineal societies because homolumina said that there are not any.

                      I am not arguing for one kind of society over another. As a matter of fact I am arguing about individual choice and not being ruled by others with motives or agendas that are against my faith.

      http://peoplesclimate.org/march/

      Many anti-nuke people from around the country will attend to make the case that nuclear energy should not be allowed to redefine themselves as renewable or clean in order to present nuclear as a cure for carbon issues the U.N. will be addressing. This is as good a day as any for anti-nuclear people around the world to join forces in some way to say nuclear energy must end.

      I will be in N.Y. how about you? What will you do to protest nuclear energy on that date if you can't go to N.Y.? Organize your community now. Lights out campaign, unity march whatever it is be peaceful, get some press coverage and make the message clear.

    Japan is located in the ring of fire and the laws of probability state in this case that there will be earthquakes and with earthquakes you have aftershocks, what the nuclear cartel fail to reconcile is the were, when and magnatude and since you can't build a nuclear reactor to withstand the strongest of earthquakes expected, you should not build them and in Japan you need to close them down and invest your money on geothermal, it's that simple and logical.

By the end of the episode, she's screaming at the departing passengers for the new planetary world: "Don't get on the plane! 'To Serve Man'? It's a cookbook!"

      In any case, there are probably "plans" for us out there…

    Are Earthquakes on the rise? Not talking shallower fracking ones by count? Although, these may point to or be somewhat driven by an increased overall seismic activity globally – if one exists.

    I have seen some interesting theories on climate change driving earthquake activity.

    We know the northern latitudes land mass has been expanding since the compression forces of the great glacial ice sheets has been removed during this inter-glacial period and they still are, could thermal forces in these same latitudes (where Climate Change is most pronounced) be acting in concert with this rebound expansion now (see Hudson Bay rebound and Baltic Sea rebound data)?

    The point here is, were the predicted earthquake design estimates too low because of being based on our limited understanding of the historic earthquake record and not adjusting them upwards for future periods of greater seismic activity?

    Are all of the nuclear facilities under designed because of this factor alone.

    OK for those who would point out the obvious, I understand that there should not be nukies at all under any circumstances. OK

          Can Faraday cages tame Wi-Fi? – How-to – Techworld.com
          http://howto.techworld.com/mobile-wireless/2767/can-faraday-cages-tame-wi-fi/

          Say you wanted to protect your Wi-Fi network from surrounding buildings. The most obvious way to do this would be to secure the devices on your network using the wireless security protocol of choice. A very effective, but more extreme, way to do this would be to secure the building itself by making it act as a Faraday cage, shielding the radio frequency waves used by Wi-Fi.

          Making a large building into a Faraday cage involves encasing the building in a thin layer of conductive material or metal mesh. In physics, a Faraday cage or Faraday shield – named for the British physicist Michael Faraday, who discovered the phenomenon in the 19th century and built the first iteration in 1836 – is an ingenious application of Gauss' law.

          Gauss' Law establishes the relation between electric flux flowing out of a closed surface and the electrical charge enclosed inside the surface. Basically, in a hollow object that can conduct electricity, such as an aluminum sphere, charge will (ideally) distribute itself evenly over the surface of the sphere, and there won't be an electric field inside the sphere. This has the effect of blocking EMFs (elecromagnetic fields) and shielding radio frequency waves.

    As negotiations move forward on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), a wide range of German elected and civic leaders are in disbelief that the U.S. remains serious about including Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS). From the German perspective, that's a failed 20th century approach. U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman increasingly will hear from German leaders and others in Europe that continuing U.S. support for ISDS as an element in any trade deal is a non-starter. ISDS provides for secret tribunals that allow multinational corporations to sue nation states for loss of future profits and circumvent national laws and courts…
    … thanks to a suit brought by the Swedish energy firm Vattenfall against the German government, opposition to ISDS is nearly universal.
    Vattenfall is suing Germany for billions in future lost profits due to German Chancellor Angela Merkel's proclamation that after the horrors of Fukushima, Germany no longer supports nuclear energy development, as Der Spiegel International reports.
    Unfortunately, that decision is apparently not up to the German government and people. Vattenfall believes its future profits come first, and if Germany goes non-nuclear, Vattenfall and presumably others must be paid off based on the inclusion of ISDS as part of trade policy within the European Union…

      …There are 500 similar cases of corporate state vs. nation state currently pending in every continent, based on almost every trade deal since the North American Free Trade Agreement. Veolia, the giant French-based transportation company, is suing Egypt for raising its minimum wage, which would mean higher pay for workers at the Alexandria bus company it owns and thus lower profits. Other lawsuits attack national legislation concerning everything from cigarette labeling to fracking regulation.
      Ironically back in the U.S., proponents of TTIP and the more imminent Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) criticize those of us who oppose ISDS as anti-trade Neanderthals. But in my discussions with German leaders last week, it is clear that the U.S. looks like the Neanderthal by supporting ISDS, coupled with dramatic increases here in economic inequality and nearly unlimited influence by corporate America in all aspects of our lives. If Froman proceeds with ISDS in the final version of the TPP, Germans and most other Europeans will never trust a future TTIP, even if there are ISDS carve outs for certain national legislation. They can read the handwriting on the TPP wall very clearly.

    TOKYO — Fear of a giant tsunami prompted Masahito Abe to rebuild his family home on higher ground 20 years ago. In March 2011, his caution paid off when towering waves ripped into the northeast coast of Japan, killing almost 19,000 people, including 40 of Mr. Abe’s neighbors in the picturesque village of Koizumi.
    Like tens of thousands of other survivors whose lives have been put on hold for more than three years, Koizumi’s 1,800 residents know that in the coming decades, they and future generations will again be confronted by potentially fatal tsunamis. Yet Abe and other residents in the country’s disaster-prone northeast are now questioning the wisdom of a grand, five-year plan that the government says will protect them and their livelihoods: hundreds of concrete walls stretching 230 kilometers (about 140 miles) along the coast, at a cost of $8 billion.
    “It’s madness,” says Abe, a local schoolteacher who points out that the 14.7-meter (about 48-ft.) wall proposed for Koizumi will be lower than the tsunami that inundated the village three years ago …
