Ocean hits record high for radioactive Strontium at all 6 locations near Fukushima reactors — Levels up to 20 times higher than reported last week — Officials: Contamination from highly radioactive ‘debris’ is seeping into ground and flowing out to sea

TEPCO Prompt Report of Result of Analysis, Sept. 10, 2014:

Port of Fukushima Daiichi, around Discharge Channel and Bank Protection — Seawater

This newly published data shows record levels of Strontium-90 have been detected at all 6 seawater monitoring locations in front of the destroyed reactors. At 3 of 6 locations levels are around triple the previous record set last year.

Yet a report released by TEPCO days later on Sept. 12, 2014 claims: “Results indicate efforts to protect water are succeeding… inside the port area, concentrations of radioactivity have been steadily decreasingStrontiumnearest the reactors… show levels of 70-100 Bq/LStrontium 90 has been reduced to approximately a third of earlier levels [and] are projected to further reduce… Strontium 90 outflows to one-fortieth of the current estimated amount of outflow.”

According to a TEPCO document from last month: “Groundwater around reactor buildings (Unit 1 to 4) is confirmed to contain radioactive materials which have mixed with rainwater having been contacted with contaminated debris left on the ground surface due to the accident… contaminated water in the buildings theoretically does not mix with the groundwater flowing around the buildings.”

    PS.. I don't really know too much about military life.
    So what does the 'girl back home' do when ..her true love is partying it up?
    Can't say I get that.
    Guess that might contribute to the amounts male vets with no one to care for them.

    PS..With the military paying for transsexual operations…perhaps..'the girl back home"..is being rendered 'obsolete'.

    Makes a person kind of wonder what the military actually 'brings to the table'.
    It isn't food ..unless they plan to eat it themselves.

      Hi Heart , good observations… some also go “rape-trolling” a forum of mostly sofisticated , goodhearted people , in a attempt to install their racist degenerated hatred and primitivity , hijack any movement that may grow out of the good heart's an turn it in to a Certain civil war so they can slaughter the minority's they hate so much in the proces…and of course claim the power afterwards…and start all the crap all over again…or so they dream…that's how it looks like to me anyway's…
      I confess i've been absent because i was panicking because of that…failing to prepare a neutralising counterstrategy…if i would have stayed at least lurking..i could have seen Enenews rebouncing nicely…as it alway's does…
      I'm ashamed to be a litle man with litle faith…giving to litle credit…to my joy and relief…been proving wrong again… ;) :)

      A country without a military..is an illogical proposition ..Rockwell.

      Tenet ..that it has to continue ..do to the 'other guy' ..is just a continuation of the same paradigm.

      Why is it that Human intellect can not see past aggression toward each other?
      In any event..it has been and is a mistake to allow too much control via this mindset.

      There are over a thousand military bases abroad, protecting our strategic interests, exactly who the fuck is protecting us? A dozen men with boxcutters breached trillions of dollars of our security state, or so they say. If the military took an oath to uphold the Constitution, then imho, they're about as effective as our Congress and by that I mean, not very. Dear military, turn away from the dark side of the force. Or just change your name to the Imperial guard, so we can come up with new ways to defend ourselves.

        How many bases, exactly? Maybe of interest, to Taxpayers…

          excerpt…
          "In a world of statistics and precision, a world in which “accountability” is now a Washington buzzword, a world where all information is available at the click of a mouse, there’s one number no American knows. Not the president. Not the Pentagon. Not the experts. No one.

          The man who wrote the definitive book on it didn’t know for sure. The Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times columnist didn’t even come close. Yours truly has written numerous articles on U.S. military bases and even part of a book on the subject, but failed like the rest.

          There are more than 1,000 U.S. military bases dotting the globe. To be specific, the most accurate count is 1,077. Unless it’s 1,088. Or, if you count differently, 1,169. Or even 1,180. Actually, the number might even be higher. Nobody knows for sure."

        Pretty big business.. huh? The military budget has doubled since 2001. Nice!

        Always follow the money..all roads of/leading to truth.. are/have been/always will be/ caked in the stuff!
