    Black Stuff Might Be A Scientific Field Test.

    "Development of high affinity biosorbents by surface display of metal binding proteins"

    "The project is to develop profit oriented economically feasible to implement by all metal handling industries including DAE establishments for the treatment of low and medium level metal containing effluents and nuclear wastes using enhanced whole-cell biosorption technology. It is aimed at to proceed from the proof-of concept to "field testing stage." The development of such an efficient and affordable technology for nuclear waste treatment is essential. In this project we will develop a technology for the display of metal binding proteins at the cell surface of "cyanobacteria." The strains will be tested for immobilization for the development of bioreactor to remove the radioactive and non-radioactive metal from industrial effluents. The process parameters will be optimized for scaling up. The proposed project may provide a cost effective, quick and more metal binding capacity and it will find an essential alternative method for online treatment in DAE and metal handling industries for safe discharge of wastewater."

    Cyanobacteria; This is Blue/Green Algae. Also Known As The Black Stuff.

    If This Stuff Is Bio-engineered Algae Designed To Bond With Metal, Then Some Of That Metal Would Stick To A Magnet.

      The black dust is MOX plutonium/uranium flying through the air, killing everyone who inhales it.

      It is death for our world as we have known it.

      • James2

        Why do you say it NoNukes?

        I don't think there was enough MOX for it to visibly spread that far and wide.

        • Mack Mack

          Plutonium made it all the way to Lithuania.

        • NoNukes NoNukes


          well, my thinking is:

          1. The "black dust" tests off the hook for Alpha

          2. there is MOX fuel at Fukushima

          I have only begun to investigate the history of MOX. From the very surface, it looks like a change was made beginning in the (late) 1990s shifting the international nuclear industry from uranium fuel to MOX. Back in 1999-2002, there was already talk of putting MOX in multiple reactors at Fukushima, so I assume that all of the reactors there could have it now.

          I have watched as the puff/plumes/clouds of "black dust" emerge from R4. Nuckelchen has caught it from R3. In the link in Wotcha's post yesterday, a sandstorm of black "dust" flew from the direction of R5 and R6, I believe.

            They supposedly had a 10 year court battle to prevent MOX from being loaded into the reactors in Japan. Apparently that battle was lost by the opposition in July of 2010 and in August of 2010, MOX was loaded into #3.

            I suppose nothing would surprise me now – if they loaded MOX prior to the court order – well they should go to hell more than once I guess..

              While watching that video above, my husband said, "that looks like tires burning." I hope that he is right and I am wrong. Tires have a lot more Alpha than I was aware of then. I hope that Tepco was smarter than that, too.

        • NoNukes NoNukes

          StillJill, how are you? I have been hoping that you are feeling better.

          I believe nuckelchen thinks along the same lines about the black dust, from yesterday's webcam thread, "and how others will be the down-crushing black-nano-shit hunderts of miles coming down away from fukuplant? the black powder is higher contaminated then a ground who will be inked by radio-rainings for months…"

                I searched last night for instructions on using the blood smear to detect Alpha.

                Could you just point me in the direction of information on microscopes for this, and how the blood smear detects Alpha?

                All I found so far was that the depletion of blood lymphocytes indicates a dose of about 200-800 rads 1.5 weeks prior, is this what you mean?

                "If a blood smear shows depletion of peripheral blood lymphocytes less than 1.5 weeks after irradiation, the corresponding radiation absorbed dose is about 200-800 rads."

                This website was interesting in general:

      I have a bad case of Rouleaux and after some research discovered leukemic cells, but have still not been able to have this verified by an expert. The Rouleaux is out of control. I was very worried last night because I had been propping my head up with my hand and the area or pressure point(palm print) was not a normal red that you would expect to see. Instead it was a deep purple area and I'm assuming this is because of the Rouleaux. I've been researching this condition and there are many causes including cancer and radiation.
      After my wife begged me, I went to the local emergeny room today. I started talking to a nurse and asked her if they were seeing a lot of GI issues. She told me there has been a big increase in GI cases. This information exchange was very low-key.
      About 15 minutes goes by and the doctor comes in. I told him my symptoms and he asked why I thought I had what I claimed. Told him I had exposure. After going back and forth with the typical x-ray airplane bullshit, I told him to bring me a fetal doppler and I would show him exactly what I was talking about. He started to stumble on his words and then told me they didn't have one in ER and they were on the second floor (labor and deliver). Refused to get me one so I could show him the cause of my symptoms. He also told me Rouleaux doesn't happen in white people. To make this story short….they took my blood and did the labs while I waited. An hour later were my results. Healthy blood with no signs of illness.
      Flash forward 30 minutes.. prepped another blood film and this time it didn't look so much like Rouleaux, they have started to gather into larger clusters many times greater than the stacked rows and still plenty of leukemic cells. I can tell you with 100& certainty the results they told me were not what they viewed in my blood.

      I am more than pissed… and I'm dieing….

      • James2

          "it is believed that a static magnetic field can induce magnetization of the iron containing hemoglobin proteins contained within individual RBC's. As a result, such fields may impart a net dipole moment to individual RBC's. Such induced magnetization is believed to be an underlying cause of Rouleaux formation"

          I've been talking about the static charges created by this radiation for some time now. This may ring a bell to some of you. I don't believe I have mentioned it here on Enenews

            Monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS) is a condition in which an abnormal protein (monoclonal protein, or M protein) is in the blood. M protein is produced by plasma cells, a type of white blood cell. Monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance usually causes no problems. In some people, however, monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance is either associated with another disease or can progress over years to other disorders, including some forms of blood cancer,,,,,,,,,,,Monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance rarely causes signs or symptoms. The condition is usually detected by chance when you have a routine blood test for another problem. However, some people may experience nerve problems, such as numbness or tingling, associated with the abnormal protein.,,,

            Stacked blood cells are easy to see. Learn how to prepare a blood film (it's easy). You do not need stain to view the stacked cells. My wife's blood also has problems,but so far no stacked cells. I have been using a degausser and it's helping. I wasn't quite ready to start using it, still had some more reading to do, but with the way I was feeling and the deep purple marks, felt I really didn't have a choice. It was an instant relief.

            The clumping that I am now seeing is called "cellular aggregation". I just found this.

              What a nightmare. I'm sorry about your ER experience. I wish that Dr. Gofman was still alive. There must be someone who could help. Could you email Helen Caldicott and Chris Busby? They might know of good people in CA.

              I had a painful ulcer for the first time in my life last Sept., saw a new doctor who dismissed it, saying that it likely was indigestion. Mastic gum and apple cider vinegar helped. I don't doubt that there has been a huge increase in GI, leukemia, etc. and that people are sent home.

              I didn't see your conversation with mungo before my post above. I haven't had coffee yet. So we look for the stacked cells? Do you detect Alpha with other equipment? Will get coffee.

                Hi NoNukes,
                I called it before I even went in. Told family that results would come back negative, but it still pissed me off. I personally would not have gone if it wasn't for my wife, after all, this is Alpha radiation.
                I have multiple detection methods for Alpha radiation.

We kept them at bay for 30 years after 3 mile island but now with oil prices on the rise and the military industrial complex owning the elected officials the nuclear industry is back in business in the US again. This is a battle that has to be fought generation by generation. The problem is that with accidents like Fukushima we are facing extinction.

        I'm concerned about the entire Pacific Ocean Ruth and the devastation to the food chain. This is the beginning of year 2! What might one expect an average person soaking in radioactive waste at their feet, consuming radioactive food and water, for an outcome? The intricate movement and migration of the contaminated sea food throughout the Pacific Ocean links all Oceans together. Of course so do the currents. An ever increase in the accumulation of radiation dose will occur.

    Americium 241 is silvery black then oxidation turns it black and paramagnetic, it's associated with MOX fuel/reprocessed fuel

    From wikipedia

    See also: Nuclear reprocessing

    Americium was detected in the fallout from the Ivy Mike nuclear test.

    Pieces of trinitite, containing traces of Americium-241
    The longest-lived and most common isotopes of americium, 241Am and 243Am, have half-lives of 432.2 and 7,370 years, respectively. Therefore, all primordial americium (americium that was present on Earth during its formation) should have decayed by now.

    Existing americium is concentrated in the areas used for the atmospheric nuclear weapons tests conducted between 1945 and 1980, as well as at the sites of nuclear incidents, such as the Chernobyl disaster. For example, the analysis of the debris at the testing site of the first U.S. hydrogen bomb, Ivy Mike, (November 1, 1952, Enewetak Atoll), revealed high concentrations of various actinides including americium; due to military secrecy, this result was published only in 1956.[15] Trinitite, the glassy residue left on the desert floor near Alamogordo, New Mexico, after the plutonium-based Trinity nuclear bomb test on July 16, 1945, contains traces of americium-241. Elevated levels of americium were also detected at the crash site of a US B-52 bomber, which carried four hydrogen bombs, in 1968 in Greenland.[16]

  • I am thinking the introcuction of salt water the the reactors in the begining gave rise to this in some way !

  • ShineTheLight

    "Weapons grade plutonium contains several isotopes. In addition to the dominant Pu-239, there is always a small amount of Pu-241. Pu-241 beta decays, with a half-life of 14.35 years, to Am-241. Am-241 subsequently decays with the emission of a 60‑keV X-ray which, like the 80-keV X-ray of uranium, is relatively easy to detect under field conditions. Thus, a most sensitive technique for detecting weapons grade plutonium is to detect the contaminant Am-241 and infer the accompanying plutonium."

    Hi everyone. Usually I just read what all you great people are writing….so glad I found this site.

    stock@hawaii…Zeolite is a great mineral to use for chelation therapy. It traps heavy metals and is also great for removing radioactive isotopes. It was used after Chernobyl. Make sure you get a 'high grade' micronized zeolite. Most health food stores have it. The lower grades are used for filtering air and water. Make sure to drink lots of water while taking it – 8 glasses a day.

    I have been taking it since last March and I bought a water filter that has a layer of zeolite in it right after Fukushima happened.

    I found a utube video called "Magnetic Uranium – Periodic Table of Videos" about a kind of magnetic uranium atom consisting of uranium, carbon and nitrogen. It is a very dark blue which appears black…..I am guessing the black stuff might be uranium plus other atoms, possibly from the MOX fuel?

    The image to me looks like silicon carbide
    , they would stick to a magnet that way as well.

    from wikipedia

    Nuclear fuel particles

    Silicon carbide is an important material in TRISO-coated fuel particles, the type of nuclear fuel found in high temperature gas cooled reactors (such as the Pebble Bed Reactor). A layer of silicon carbide gives coated fuel particles structural support and is the main diffusion barrier to the release of fission products.[49]

    Maybe Newt's idea of cities on the moon and space colonies isn't such a bad idea afterall. Are you still out there, Stewart Brand? I am VERY disturbed by the illness of our friends in CA. I hope you are better soon.

    • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar anne

      There is so much radiation in space. No way to get there because of the radiation and so much radiation on the moon, no way to live there. The idea of space colonization and space travel is to divert attention from the destruction of our geomagnetic shield and our planet already ongoing.

      Why do you think the US has abandoned its manned space craft? And why have the last two Russian attempts to leave the earth failed? There is so much radiation from Fukushima and other nuclear accidents and nuclear testing and even from "normally operating" nuclear power plant and ionospheric manipulation that space travel is not possible.

      Every time something is sent into space its slices the atmosphere and that slice can't ever be repaired. The Russians even have a program determining how many space flights were possible.

  • Justme

    This Alpha we have over here must be some kind of mutation. You could have a house full and not even know it was there. I'll explain. First your detector must be able to detect Alpha radiation. Normally we would expect the emitter to emit a burst of particles in all directions. Like pins in a pin cushion or spikes on a sea urchin, but the stuff we have here appears to emit the particles in one single line as if the pin cushion had only one pin sticking out. These Alpha emitters (dust from Fukushima) are throwing large amounts of particles in a very directional line and these particles have to hit the anode, which is a small wire inside the tube. You have to hold your Geiger counter very still, almost like you would hold a magnifying glass while trying to burn something, but on a microscopic level. You'll need to rest your wrists on the surface you are checking. It's nearly impossible to keep a particle focused on the anode. Once you learn how to do this…you will be shocked.

    Check the manual and see if your Geiger counter detects Alpha. Also, go to your local library to learn about Alpha radiation. Finding reliable information on this topic, is becoming increasingly difficult, online.

    So the Alpha is stacked and the blood cells are stacked?

    Magnetized uranium:
    may be the same video mornam mentioned on youtube, I don't know:

    What kind of geiger do you all recommend to detect Alpha? Inspector? Black Cat Systems, other?

  • Justme

    I wasn't looking at the Alpha particles as begin stacked, but that brings some ideas into my head that I will work on.

    As for a Geiger counter. I would have a hard time trusting any new Geiger counters ordered today. Without a doubt I would test it against a known source, but it would be very easy to make a detector sense a strong source and indicate the actual reading and then go into a reduced state that only reports a percent of the actual reading until it once again comes into contact with a strong source. If you know anything about electronics, buy a Geiger tube and make a simple circuit.

    I think it would be a good idea to read up on degaussing. Not sure if others are going to have cells like mine, but it wouldn't hurt to be prepared.

    There are some weird things going on with magnetism and I'm doing my best to figure it out. I can't say I ever recall anyone mention static or magnetism, but it's wrecking havoc over here.
