    1st of Los Alamos Six Trails, cont'd
    Euler said the municipal code specifically permits citizens to temporarily block a road if they are protecting the public from a hazard, and (if given the opportunity) she will argue that the radiological hazards to lab workers and the public have been scientifically proven to be greatly underestimated by the nuclear establishment. Attached are three of the scientific documents she will try to present in her own defense, which suggest that long term exposure to even low levels of man-made ionizing radiation constitute a previously unacknowledged public hazard, and that she was justified in temporarily blocking the road into the lab in a moral-conscience-directed effort to protect the Lab workers and the public from these hazards.

    She will further provide documentary evidence that excess cancers are not the only hazard caused by exposures to low levels of man-made ionizing radiation; dozens of sound epidemiological studies also point to a dose-response relationship which also includes genomic instability, higher infant mortality, and heart disease, among other potential health effects. Some scientists believe they have evidence that lower levels of radiation can actually be MORE harmful to humans, because the cells are not killed outright; instead, they can sometimes replicate in a damaged form.

    1st of Los Alamos Six Trials Sept 18th, cont'd

    Catherine Euler said: “We can no longer allow the nuclear establishment to gamble away all our futures. Some plutonium and insoluble uranium isotopes will remain accessible for human ingestion and inhalation in the dust and air of New Mexico, and in the Rio Grande and nearby aquifers, for the rest of time. The International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) radiation “protection” standards are neither accurate nor updated by recent epidemiological studies (See attached summaries of the German KiKK and French Geocap epidemiological surveys). Bechtel and the DOE are invested in relaxing radiation standards because it helps lower fiscal costs, but the cost in terms of human health effects are beyond calculation. Indigenous peoples downstream are at great risk, as are all the breathers of air and drinkers of water in Santa Fe, Albuquerque and downriver. Citizens have a duty to future generations to inform themselves about the hazards Lab authorities are refusing to acknowledge, and then to act on that information.”

    That same evening there will be a public hearing in Española to give the public an important opportunity to voice concerns over the DOE’s plans to process 13.1 tons of "excess" plutonium at Los Alamos National Lab and/or the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP). The hearings begin at 5.30 pm at the Northern NM Community College, Center for Fine Arts, 921 Paseo de Oñate. Public comments begin at 6…

    Dear friends,

    Earlier this year, Barry O'Farrell overturned a 26-year long moratorium on uranium exploration, without consultation or the consent of NSW residents.

    Mining companies were given 60 days to 'express an interest' in uranium exploration in our state. Their deadline is this Tuesday November 13.

    So from this Tuesday, the choice is in the hands of NSW Resources Minister Chris Hartcher.

    Join us for a community protest outside NSW Parliament at midday on Tuesday November 13 on Macquarie St Sydney.

    Let's tell Barry O'Farrell and Chris Hartcher we want NSW uranium to stay in the ground.

    Speakers include:
    • Luke Foley, NSW Labor, Shadow Minister for the Environment and Climate Change;
    • Jamie Parker, Greens MP for Balmain;
    • Genevieve Kelly, NTEU NSW Secretary, recently returned from Unions NSW trip to Fukushima, Japan; and

    •Richard Broinowski, Former diplomat, University of Sydney Adjunct Professor, and author of new book, Fallout from Fukushima.

    As Australian governments plan to sell uranium to India, people across that region are taking bold and brave action, in the face of serious repression. They don't want to see the impacts of Australian uranium on their communities, their water and environment.

    Will you stand with them? Come along this Tuesday at midday. NSW Parliament will be sitting, and they need to hear NSW residents want uranium to stay in the ground.

    See you at midday next Tuesday outside NSW Parliament!

      For the Uranium Free NSW community campaign

      • Maggie123

        Richard – is 'uraniumfreensw' the website to keep track of livestream? And BTW – I didn't try to sign petition, so don't know if there's hope or accomodation for int'l petition signing. Is the group hoping for int'l sigs also?

        More BTW – I genuinely *never* go anywhere and small rural community "actions" where I live are most likely are oriented toward "gentrification" interpretations of what the community needs – so I *really* mean it when I say you may be sure my spirit attends your rally with you!!

        • richard richard

          I'm not affiliated with any of these organisations, I simply attend when and where I can.

          So my video stream will simply be an unofficial/freelance thing from whatever vantage I can get to.

          And thanks for your support in spirit. I'm actually do this not just for my part of the world. Sure, we don't want to be exposed to the mining, but I don't want us to be feeding (and profiting from) the nuke industry around the globe.

          So very much indeed, I would deeply appreciate yours and others spirit here. I'm putting my feet on the street for you all. And just quietly, I really want to see you lot doing the same over there.

        • Radio VicFromOregon

          I was wondering the same.

    • richard richard

      I'll broadcast the event from my phone .. at 22 hours from the time of the post (well, 10 minutes earlier then that). I guess that will be 8PM going by the time of this website.

      That will be midday in Sydney.

      Here's the channel I broadcast from.

      you can go there now and prepare and check, there are earlier broadcasts to try out.

      when my phone begins streaming the audio and video, your web browser should be able to show the live action.

      try it now, let me know before hand if you have issues, because once I'm on the road for the event I wont be able to help you.

      • Maggie123

        Hi Richard – have gone to ustream channel and bookmarked it. Looks like all works fine. Always good to check and thanks for suggesting it! Saw test (trees, house roof, fine sky) also viewed interview with the concerned person from Malaysia – I appreciate being aware of global "grass roots" awareness/thought even if I learn 'same old same old' issues, forces, and so on!

        • richard richard

          Perfect maggie. I assume sound was fine as well.

          Thanks for the cross check 😉

          • aigeezer aigeezer

            Hi richard. I watched the test vid (trees, roof, sky) from here in Canada. Sound was just open-mike wind noise, but seemed OK. It defaulted to mute on my machine – had to turn it on.

            It's a very 21st-century experience somehow – the peasants now have more than pitchforks at their disposal (if they only figure it out).

            Brace yourself for someone to announce that those clouds are chemtrails. 😉

            Thanks for doing this!

      • Radio VicFromOregon

        I've got an account with these fine people and will follow your link to the event, richard.

  • Maggie123

    Richard re livestream sound with interview re Malaysia – first 30 sec or so more ambient noise than comfortable but not bad, also interview subject was not 'settled in. He turned his head while speaking, maybe even faced downward which may have made it harder to catch his words.

    His accent (and style of articulation) was a factor. Once he was more directly engaged his words came through more clearly.

    Anyway, by 40 sec or so he was directly facing you/lens and from then on sound was fine.

    I should have thought to mention it before. Just went back and re-watched to determine what seemed to make a difference – was the 'direct facing' you/lens that took care of 'start up' sound difficulty for listener, I'm pretty sure. Enjoy the day! 🙂

    • richard richard

      thanks Maggie. great you have sound.

      And look, don't expect a nightly news broadcast level quality feed.

      this is citizen journalist stuff. it's raw. live from what ever cam (or number of cams) are nearby.

      i've raved about this technology before. when the japan demonstrations were taking off. it's brilliant to watch a demonstration from half a dozen view points.. the actual quality becomes secondary.

      i'm not promising sydney will be like that. it's just little ole amatuer cam.

      and even the 'actors'.. they are just real people, desperate for a voice against the noise of lame stream media.

      they are not professionally coached speakers, trained in eye/ear candy to be able to hynotise the audience with their message.

      the malaysian people are still struggling with their cause and large corporations poisoning their environment. in fact i just received a new email. i may post some details soon.

      the people's new service will be a little rough, ready and raw. but it's going to be closer to the real pulse of what peole want, i think, in the coming future.

      if you can't beat MSM, create an alternative.

      finally, i like to remind people to get their phones and install the ustream app, setup an account and be ready to broadcast. if we want the world to hear us, we all need to stream the real news we find.

      (end of mini rant, 'xcuse).

  • Maggie123

    Your're welcome, Richard – if anything it was his accent and more especially his articulation that might have been most significant "issue".

    It was especially helpful when he faced you – a natural, spontaneous, behavior of anyone when answering questions so should usually happen without fuss.

    Accents and his particular style of articulation aren't usually common concerns.

    I didn't mean to suggest any quality but the informal one on the video – it was fine!! 🙂

    "a little rough, ready and raw. but it's going to be closer to the real pulse of what people want" .. I HOPE so! I *do* appreciate finely crafted productions for many reasons but I'm less fond of "dressed up just match culturally evolved patterns and models."

    I watched lots of Occupy footage done with by ordinary folks and have done some amateur cam stuff myself – I think it's great for any of us to gather the world as we find it and share it!

    (I don't have current devices – no need for cell ph. and not the right budget to get stuff I don't need, plus I lean toward not buying stuff just to have it, plus I've got a 'thing' about those people suffering in Congo and China to supply us with "toys" so try to only acquire what I can use.

    As said – my location so remote I seldom have much local to film. Unlikely I'll be doing any livestreaming but *love* the idea – who knows!!) 🙂

    • Radio VicFromOregon

      M123, in the midsts of giving your time and attention to so many needful things, do you have time to work with aigeezer (and a little distracted help from me) on a proposal to Admin? Admin is overwhelmed with chasing down rude comments, OT on the Topic forums, and the aftermath of Sandy, so our request may just look like yet more endless work for enenews. You and aigeezer are far more knowledgeable about blogging and as democratic as we want this, having more than a very few people doing the first draft can pull a project in too many directions. Doing a separate forum was your very brilliant and exciting idea, so if you are still up for it, maybe aigeezer will help with the first draft filling out the goal statement posted already? Please let me know how i can help, too. I'll check back here for a reply. I just dropped in for a quick check. I'm nervous about SFP 4 lately and so check frequently. That's my ultimate responsibility or assignment in all of this. Something about a crack. But, now i just read that the NJ reactor has a crack in the reactor, so maybe that was what i was getting signals from in the universe. These things can be hard to tell, but, i'm sure you understand and i come to enenews to keep updated so that i can send what energy i can to help manifest a better outcome. Sometimes its nice to read that what i'm sensing is actually occurring and then i won't put off giving it my attention.

      • Maggie123

        Vic – will draft something tomorrow, ran a rough draft idea through my head earlier today so looks as if we're of like mind on this.

        Poor Admin! Wonder if she/he has a day job or other time-gobblers besides ENE!

  • Maggie123

    Vic – Thank you too for laying out the focus of your involvement and sharing aspects of your responsibility, your approach to it, and how it seems to go … didn't mean to ignore and am honored to know. Will get at the draft tomorrow as said and am also pleased to do that!!

    • Radio VicFromOregon

      Thank you M123. You'll have to run into aigeezer when he/she? posts. Did you happen to save the definition or description aigeezer posted? I forgot to. But, it's somewhere in the non-nuclear thread. I just discovered the comment archive link, which is how i just found you. I have hopped all around and am so glad to find this little tool.

      If i may put in a request that might be impossible to do – scrolling up and down from comment to comment trying to find the last thread i was participating in is presenting my poor little lymed eaten brain a challenge. I can no longer remember certain abstract identifiers for very long. The new forum might help. But, given enenewsers, it may come to an interesting chaos, too. Now, i can either take this as a chance to do some good practice to redevelop those areas of grey matter cuz i'm motivated to re-find the threads so will search regardless of how confusing or hard it becomes for me, or i can ask if there is a way to organize the proposed forum in such a way as to help me get less lost. Looking at the date, the name, AND the time is the hard part. Much like you and zeros. Maybe we could find a way to highlight the beginning of threads or mark them somehow? Somehow flag them to make them easier to find later. If not, i'll deal with.

      • Maggie123

        Vic: Yes, 1- will work up draft and will keep eye out for aigeezer … 2- re: locating earlier posts, etc: I, also, only found 'comments archive' recently and it's how I found you this morning! So I was going to propose we request a 'search box' — Duh! looks like there is one! (I suppose has been there all along!) Will experiment with it later, 2 or 3 key words should let us find older posts, articles, etc. 🙂

        • aigeezer aigeezer

          Maggie123, that was a heady thread we were all part of a couple of days ago. I hope we didn't peak early!

          The bit I posted then was "Our version in a hypothetical dedicated thread might be: Given that nukes exist, where do we go from here, and how do we do it?" – it was just the wording of the moment, feel free to modify it in any way that's useful.

          Pressure! 😉

          • blackbeer blackbeer

            Thanks for keeping this idea alive you three. Anything I can do just let me know.


            • Radio VicFromOregon

              No peaking here, but, for me, trying to wind through the threads back and forth and up and down is a little too psychedelic. I've had a bit of brain damage from a long bout of undiagnosed and untreated Lyme disease. I fixed it thanks to Stephen Boehner and his book Healing Lyme, which is a superb example of self empowerment with a system not able to respond well to changing conditions and new information – the allopathic medical field. Great for emergencies, but, the line stops there imho. Anyway, i've asked Maggie123 if we can tag different threads somehow to make it easier for me, but if we can't, i'm game anyway. I wanted to add a thought i had earlier if i can remember the damn thing – oh yeah, what about including subthreads like – using old clothing for paper towels or Thich Nat Hans ideas of how to remained center and coming to terms with accepting we might lose, but, doing this work anyway? And, despite the Newtonian dominance of enenew bloggers that are posting and a little of the whack a mole syndrome on tat topic, what about a deep focus on personal empowerment, including ways to understand and facilitate change through our connectedness to the earth, the world, the plants and animals and people and elements, and…stop me if i'm overdoing this….getting a subthread going from as many aging activists here as we can to put in their two cents of experience. It gets so dark and angry and woefully hopeless here. That emotional response and beleif needs…

              • Radio VicFromOregon

                con't…needs to be addressed for any movement to successful. It's hard to get much creative thinking and action from a bunch of depressed people. But, there are also so many ways to do activist work and it would be lovely to see a subthread that explores those rather than tears down people's ideas as naive or impossible because someone is convinced that the powers that be "fix is in" and impossible to alter. Essentially how to have healthy angst and still bring about the rainbow revolution. So, please think on these, and your own, and i will look for Maggie123 later and see if i can't repost this to her then. I am so excited!

              • Maggie123

                Oh Good! We seem to have found one another! Vic – I haven't done what I said I'd do. Pretty cold here last night and looks like I may be shifting to "winter heat conservation" practices, which changes a whole lot of my routines especially sleep. Bummer – hoped to hold off another month as once underway will continue through to mid-March if temp patterns of last few years hold!

                Consequence today was sleepy all day so have not done much. May get myself going by 9p my time as it's 'off peak' elec from 9p to 5:30a and $$ consequences of more heat are less. (With luck, since week coming up is to be a bit warmer, I can resume 'normal routine' for a time – but am not sure they'll be *that* much warmer! I have a friend living in a different state who has similar winter heat issues – we agree – amazing how the physical effect influences motivation! 🙂

                BTW I 1- wonder what to do with a draft once done – post it where? Here? 2- Will try the search box RIGHT NOW and report back RIGHT NOW! 🙂

                  You can always start your own blog and website.

                  • Maggie123

                    🙂 I ran a blog for a good year + 1/2. It now languishes. I think I sidetracked about the time Occupy got going, then I wandered off to more politically direct activities then I dug deeper into my informal studies to gather greater understanding, and am still out here wandering about!:) I think the world began to seem so "ready to implode or explode, that I have been waiting for dust to settle and doubt it will!

                    I took it seriously – half a day most days. Have a giant file of 'essays' never posted … Always it's near in my thoughts along with 40 years worth of unaccomplished writing ideas!! Oh dear!! 🙂

                    • Radio VicFromOregon

                      PERFECT!!! I would bet we each do, regarding the essays. Clearly it's in our natures. I was wondering where you got the blog etiquette and moving threads around stuff. Why don't we use your blog, then and make sue you don't have to spend half a day doing it unless we can generate you some "passive revenue" as the new term goes? The dust ain't settling anytime soon, i think. But, there are more acts of kindness, mindfulness and beauty than any of us ever becomes aware of. Of course, if they didn't occur, none of us could be here because the universe would, then, be unlivable, completely intolerable. You, blackbeer, aigeezer, me, a few others have stepped forward and are so wanting of those acts and to do them beyond our own lives. Petitions, memberships, donations, are great. Changing our footprint is superb. Connecting with and creating synergy with old and young souls, both, is the next step in the work that must be done. We feel it, everyone here does in some way or another, but, for those with 40 years of thoughts written out and stashed in a drawer somewhere and blogs done or dreamt of, the need to share voice that will either result in giving comfort or taking action burns at our cores, does it not? Like Close Encounters and the imprint of the Devil's Tower, with Roy, Jillian, Barry and thousand of others making mud mountains and etchings for reasons they can't fully discern. Again, i'm referencing a movie as a short cut to a longer explanation.

                • Radio VicFromOregon

                  M123, we are not in that much of a hurry, right?! Admin can't cope with a new request anyway at this time. I get the winter coming thing. It seems to be arriving a tad early here, too. I will have to winterize early, including the plants, bark chipping the mud paths and hosing down the Border Collies. I got the raised bed built, then moved due to landlord not wanting it where it was sited, then torn down, moved and rebuilt yesterday in pouring cold rain and mud. Ish. Clothes still hanging in the shower dripping. But, it sounds like you are living off the grid or close enough to that. Winter is always the hardest, especially at our ages. I simply get colder easier. Thank goodness for heated flax seed pillows. But, what are those brick heat storage things you mentioned you were using?

                  1) So, the logistics of everyone putting their ideas together and one or two people writing those up then posting the draft. Of course, that's what the Cloud is for, and i have to study up on that thing as well. But, to do it here, i think we need to make ourselves a corner in maybe the Upcoming Meetings forum with a tag or title like you suggested? Would that work? 2)did it work?

                  • Maggie123

                    I do *so* know about moving raised garden beds! Installed 4 first summer here – so pleased. Planted veggies in boxes and shrubs along fences. Then learned foundation failing. Had 'just enough' resources to properly replace, had to move 2 of my boxes (walls, dirt, and wire grid under that is my anti-pocket-gopher system which works well.) Will not move them again under any circumstances! Also had to move young young roses, lilacs, and honeysuckle. Foundation re-do took out sidewalks, established grass, and much attractive fencing. Then came the weeds – big C.tree sized annuals. Won't continue OT to describe weed solution but will say short-nap earth toned carpet may as well rot here as at landfill! 3 seasons living with contractors + spending resources = barely beginning to recover, I think. Heating units work great but I keep them turned down as am still on 'ultra-thrifty' budget for another year. Overall, am making progress! I also know outdoor work in rain but not for years – fencing (barbed wire), baling oats in snow, 24-hr/day calving at sub-freezing temps! Great, eh? 🙂

                    • Radio VicFromOregon

                      Dang! I forgot the gophers! I didn't lay the chicken wire down first. Guess i'll have to plant them their own easily accessible garden somewhere else filled with their favorite foods. I do that for the slugs. Plenty of those here and with the woods behind me, i know their saying – Hey! Let's go eat at Vic's place. She doesn't lay out poisons and always has the best basil 😉
                      Bad luck about the foundation. I'm a renter and am sinking lots into my place, too, but i plan on being here for the foreseeable future and rent is real cheap. But, for foundation, i have several channels for water to mostly go around house and rocks and bricks in lieu of a sound foundation. No goats yet (for trimming the verge and cuz they are adorable) or chickens yet (for eggs and when they are dying, then dinner for the dogs and cats), and no room for a cow. Lots of predators out here and don't want to fail to care well for my little creature friends with stout shelter.

                      Just too cold for me. But, it has an appeal. So, these heater things. My house has very little insulation in it and i cover the windows with film each winter, have a wood stove i got a metal basket to put pellets in cuz their made from the leavings on sawmill floors and also burn well, though the basket concept is a bit of a hassle, then, the not so effective baseboards and one very noisy wall heater. I was looking into various portables this summer to use instead. Any suggestions.

                    • Maggie123

                      Vic – our 'homesteading' exchanges = important way 'community' works (people bring larger personal life details as we get to know one another – but of course is wildly OT. So I'm thinking about that too as something to look at, also my 'blog' as base (and/or cloud sites – which I've approached but have not had good cause to leap in yet and are great.) Anyway – am thinking about variables, about Admin's excellent ENE site which is building a 'warmer' community that struggles to stay OT at times, and so on … Will see if I organize thoughts to share today.

                      RE GOPHERS! If yours are anything like my cute little pocket gophers I'd advise finding a way to get wire under planting soil. Maybe in sections – dig down, install, move middle section dirt atop 'wired' section to do middle, then same to do far end. Have you googled re these gophers? Amazing – "earth movers and tunnlers". They *will* not necessarily be able to restrict themselves to a dedicated-for-gophers patch. I plant *everything* in wire protection, even new fruit trees in wire shaped to 'baskets' so they can be protected for a few yrs while roots develop strength/maturity to withstand gopher nibble. – Maybe your gophers are different. 🙂

                    • Radio VicFromOregon

                      M123, agree on all your thinking on options. Well, those cute little gophers, and i do love them, and especially Giant Alaskan voles, just too cute, ate all my potatoes. So, the only solution to my new raised bed is to make another one! Lay the chicken wire, fill in with the dire from the other one, lay wire in that one, and refill. Finding enough sun is the isssue for where i can grow any food. Surrounded by several firs, maples, cottonwoods, and alders. I'm going to take the next few days and finish my project and will find ya here somewhere to see if you got any further on your ruminations.

                  ENE SEARCH BOX
                  –seems to want only a single word.
                  –Single words searches yield too many hits, would be tedious.

                  I searched for last eve's post on Spain's 'solar without sun', an amazing facility in Spain.

                  ENE found "Spain" and found "solar" but nothing under 'Spain solar". Too broad.

                  ENE members in ENE search box: My login – "maggie123" and "Maggie123" = came up empty. So did "VicFromOregon".

                  I see Anne offered lots re Google. I've accidentally found ENE when looking for other stuff on google.

                  Google test results:
                  #1, 3-word search, using 'ene':
                  –Google did not find "Spain solar ENE" on it's first page of hits.
                  –Google also did not show the item when query was "ENE Spain solar"
                  –Google probably showed the item both times on pages 2, 3, or farther – I didn't check.

                  #2: 3+ words to 'pin query down' on google:
                  –"ene spain solar without sun" = target article 3rd item on page 1 of google hits.
                  –Google did better with more words to guide its search.

                  #3:"enenews" instead of only 'ene'.
                  — EUREKA! Everything is from ENEnews!

                  Conclusion re search:
                  –Use google,
                  –enter 'enenews' + article a few specific words (from title or text of wanted article)
                  –Likely = fast results.

                  Note: 1-words don't need to be unbroken text string so long as each is in the article. 2-You don't need quote marks – I used them above to isolate search words from sentence. 3- caps don't matter to…

                  • Maggie123

                    3- Caps don't matter to google. 4- avoid typing in search words if you aren't pretty sure they're "in there somewhere". 4- try variations, but for 'ene' related searches, always type 'enenews' for best results.

                    I used to teach compu and internet use skills to kids and adults – the best way to begin to see how a skill works is to play with it!

                    Google and other popular search engines use filters that *may* not show stuff that actually exists – or the item may be on one of the pages of the full search result (see page numbers across bottom of google search result page).

                    I say *may*. This is related to categorizing internet users based on key word frequency of sites visited. The filters are for marketing. Advertisers want to target most likely interested potential buyers.

                    So if you can't find something, try using words for same article that someone might use if they lived a different lifestyle! Or – try synonyms or other variations.

                    Sometimes it helps to put key words most important to you first in your search string, especially if it's an idea, concept, theory – a 'target' you don't yet have specific words, names, dates for.

                    Not often, but once in a while, espec. re political, I've had to mess about with many variations to find articles on info I want.

                    • Radio VicFromOregon

                      Thx M123! I will add to my skill base now. Interesting info on markets influencing hits back. I know people pay to be at the top of the results but it had not occurred to me that who the marketers think i am would decide google's top page list. Clearly the marketers do not have me figured out. Maybe all the filters I AM running against them!

        • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar anne

          Everything is indexed on Google. I do Google searches all the time for earlier articles and statements people make. Also there are previous articles listed with every article. And you can go backwards that way also.

          • Radio VicFromOregon

            anne, indexed how? I've just been doing the same old same old and i know there are probably better ways to google and search, and utilize the web. Can you give some pointers? I can barely even work my facebook page, but, i'm not hopelessly unable to learn with a little guidance. I know you're busy with school, but, just when you feel up to it.

            • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar anne

              VicfromOregon, just put key words into the Google search. What do you want to find? Suggest something and I will show you how to search for it.

              • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar anne

                Here's an example:

                type in the following words and see what you get:

                krypton 85 anne

              • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar anne

                Here's another example:

                krypton 85 anne meteorological consequences

              • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar anne

                When links don't work that other bloggers have cited, or they quote from an article, but don't include the link, I just type in the first few words and look among the results. For example:

                Russia has asserted that Syrian rebels

              • Radio VicFromOregon

                Thanks for the examples so far. Well, i've been searching the web for years now, but, it seems to have changed for me. I find that i get less relevant responses or completely unrelated responses. Maybe the search engines are going more word recognition and less content recognition cuz there's so much to sort through now? But, i see that you are mostly using the vin diagram in your string of words and i think i've been too broad. Google is still the most accurate for me, and i eventually get what i'm looking for after a few tries. But, my biggest computer illiteracy is within the actual pages themselves. It took me over a year on enenews to find the archive link. I wasn't even thinking that way. I was spending lots of time going back and back and back looking for old articles, then, "oh – what's that little link!". So maybe that is more about organizational or user features than actual searching.

                • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar anne

                  There are also links to other websites at the bottom of the page of enenews.

                  For example, at the bottom of this page:

                  Fukushima Diary
                  Another truck driver had myocardial infarction to crash into a parking bus in Hayama machi Kanagawa

                • Sickputer

                  Vicki sez…"It took me over a year on enenews to find the archive link."

                  No loss there in ignorance. Google is light years superior to the Archives function…I never use Search ENEnews because it is feeble.

                  Case in point: Search archive for: tacomagroove

                  Two hits

                  Search Google for: tacomagroove enenews

                  3,850 hits

                  Search archive for: Sickputer

                  3 hits

          Great! I just posted a ramble to blackbeer and aigeezer below and said i'd repost to you, but, it's just below, so i will wait to see if you find it. I was just thinking while working out in the yard getting things ready for winter. Just ideas, but, i want to get them in while we're all thinking on this. Too many variables or topics and it won't work. Just tossing ideas out thinking we will all narrow down our choices, but, i want to clammer for the "reuse" subthread you started since it is so personally empowering and immediately doable.

      Thanks Anne…I think we are really getting to the tipping point for fracking wastes creating a death zone underground and in drinking water that is as bad for the human race as nuclear fallout.

      They are trying as fast as possible to harvest all the wild buffalo (natural gas) before whistleblowers find out we are dying in droves from hot fracking waste.

      Maybe we need a new name for them similar to their cousins in crimes against humanity (nucleocrats).

      How about the frackocrats?

      Larry Litt gets sole credit for inventing that term, and I will give it more cyberplay. Only one use of the word frackocrat in Google…Larry back one month before Fukushima blew the coop:

    here is a report from the community protest outside NSW Parliament today.

    For the Uranium Free NSW community campaign.

    I did setup a video stream from my phone and the archive is here ..

    (i noticed at least one viewer when it was live, so that's a start 😉 ).

    this was my original post of the event coming up.

    It was good weather and a good crowd, probably around 100 plus.

    We all gathered outside parliament house on the footpath.

    The police did a great job of closing a lane of traffic and widening the pedestrian area.

    Media were present, I noticed Radio 2GB and Television SBS at least. I believe there was also print media.

    I'll watch for media reports and see if I can post links to them from here (later).

    I've listed the speakers on the first post.

    All gave notable speeches and hopefully it's mostly on my video.

    I personally thanked a couple of them and the organiser.

    One of them is Richard Broinowski who had a moment to chat with me and reminded me of his new book ..

    'Fallout from Fukushima'.

    I'll try to find some pics next.

    We're down here trying to put an end to uranium mining.

    Uranium, the new asbestos.

    • richard richard

      i know my video quality is not great streaming from my phone.

      But i encourage you to watch the speeches. They are some solid, information packed, first hand (recent japan visits) statements.

      These are highly positioned professionals on the anti-nuclear mission. Apparently some are in contact with Helen Caldicott.

      The main speech videos are ..

      They cover about 20 odd minutes.

      I'll try to do a tighter video edit if I get time.

      • Maggie123

        Richard! I'm so sorry I've not yet reported in on your excellent cams! Watched them last night, had composed reply, almost done – then wandered off page to track down info re possible US nuke protest action on weekend as 'supplemental' info. Neglected to pay attn to what was going on with open browser windows and managed to lose my reply before posting.

        By then was pretty tired and sidetracked on 3rd Indiana building explosion. Will re-compose reasons I think your videos and what I saw there was inspiring and hopeful – THANK YOU!

        Am about to side-track to send email notes to my Washington reps and Pres Obama to remind them if they don't include intelligence like that of Stiglitz and a few others (I'll figure out whom I want to name) in "fiscal cliff" solution finding they will betray Amer. economy; Amer. people; and the very principle of integrity.

        I plan to get back to more specific reply to you on your great contribution later today.

        Again – THANK YOU! 🙂

    • Radio VicFromOregon

      I watched at 8PM my time in Oregon! It was great!

  • Radio VicFromOregon

    Then i watched some Occupiers streaming from the back of a paddy wagon, everyone handcuffed but someone got a hand free and was streaming from some device. Just a couple minutes worth, but, when the police find out, they WILL NOT be happy.

    • richard richard

      that's sorta funny Vic. see, get that ustream app, you just never know when/where you'll use it 😉

      • Radio VicFromOregon

        I'm looking into it 😉 Like too many other things. I really enjoyed the rally and it reminded me of other very good rallys and i was impressed with the speakers and both their level of information and ability to relate their concerns and reach the crowd, which kept growing. It was a very good turn out for a work day. The smallest rally i had attended was protesting BIlly Graham for some homophobia. There were 9 of us protesters with signs including one child and a dressed down drag queen and about 15,000 Christians. Most people were civil and Billy even came out to speak with us. I have to admit i was a bit nervous cuz crowds can get real ugly, especially zealous ones and some of the folks were using their bodies to lean into us and try to intimidate us to move off. Billy took our little stand up seriously and began to be much more careful and mindful in how he worded his sermons about gay activities, admonishing the people to "hate the sin but not the sinner". Big sea change. It was a start in a town, Tacoma, WA, many years back that regularly beat the crap out of queers. Your Ustream vid captured the feel and the content of the event today in Australia perfectly. Good job!

      • Radio VicFromOregon

        i don't have a phone, i can use them without depolarizing the battery and i can hardly get any reception. I kill a watch in less than week. My nephew actually temporary douses street lamps but can do phones. But, i'm trying a tablet and Skyping and seeing if that works. So, i'm not likely to grab a fat old tablet out of my pocket to catch any quick action, but, i could do something like what you did and plan in advance. Thanks for the encouragement. Of course, my first interview would probably be the trees in the back;-)

    URGENT!!! PLEASE!!!Come on everyone, and I MEAN EVERYONE! US citizen and everyone else please. Beyond Nuclear, an antinuclear organization founded by nuclear scientists who changed their minds about nuke energy is petitioning the new NRC Chairwoman Allison MacFarlane to reject the recently held pubic hearings regarding waste disposal. The public announcement was poorly announced and the response time intentionally shortened to prevent as many people as possible from voicing their thoughts. The courts agree! The decision about railroading the hearings was made during the period when the more liberal NRC Jazko had left and the equally more liberal MacFarlane was coming in, so the majority conservative commissioners set out to get what mischief they could get done during that void in oversight. Why? Cuz the NRC failed to satisfy a legal stipulation about waste storage and public health and would just like to gloss that over. Send an email and petition NRC MacFarlane. You can use the link below to get her address or send directly from website. While from the nuclear industry, her background is in waste disposal challenges and she knows the failures. Help make this happen.

    • Maggie123

      Vic – re URGENT PLEASE – email letter sent to MacFarlane.

      Note to ENEers going to link – prepared text suggestion/guide spells MacFarlane's name wrong a couple of places.

      Thanks, Vic for the opportunity! It got me started – I spent the afternoon firing off a number of environmental issue notes to Washington!

      (Utah plans strip mine for tar sands – this duplicates what's happening due to XL pipeline at Ft. McMurray and other regions of Alberta Canada.) Left hand column scroll down to "utah tar sands carbon bomb")

      • Maggie123

        Vic – I don't mean to divert your focus. I know you're busy and have made a commitment to Fukushima in particular. Whole-scale earth-wrecking is one of my "issue" projects; I've been so horrified at Ft. McMurray conditions that the Utah development really caught my attention.)

        • Radio VicFromOregon

          What? I haven't read or heard. I wlll google it. I can hardly do anything but sit with a heated flax pillow after getting all that wet dirt shoveled and put back, but, chi came through again and i got it done. Now i'm paying 😉 I'll take a look. I got time. I usually get a message from the the groovy meditation beings, for a way to describe them right now in my mood, about SFP 4, but, if i and others go too long away, it can get snarky. It's calm, but, still a little uneasy. So, i have to find out more about that 5.5 quake in Chiba today. For me, all things are animate – just somewhere on the continuum of the yin and yang, so they might look inert, but, looks can be deceiving;-) . With a different experience of awareness, the pool wishes deeply not to fall and endanger the Earth and the lives upon it. We are in harmony with that wish, are we not? So, the work is not too difficult. Just very sad. There is a profound sadness there, and also, some type of vortex from the nuclear reactions that is unpleasant to experience. We just need that pool to hold until something better gets created. We just need to help those that can create a better solution get the ideas and get the hearing to express their ideas. Then, of course, we need to help remove institutional obstacles and all the many tacit belief paradigms you so thoughtfully write about here, at least enough to accept or allow the improvement.

        • Radio VicFromOregon

          K. Found it. I wish i hadn't and glad that you told me, too. There is a group of indigenous peoples nearby who must already know about this. They are protectors and will do what they can. I will send them an air message. I haven't connected with them for a long time, now, so it will be good to reconnect. Thanks for the opportunity. I would have not seen it otherwise accept in a newsletter and not given the same level of attention as i will because of the grief it causes you. The practice of tar sands removal is almost intolerable to watch. Almost unbearable to meet it completely. Now i know why you used the words – "rip the Earth open" in an earlier post. I meant to respond but got lost in other threads. Btw, i wanted to offer to be a reader or editor for some of your work if you need. I have friends who do that for me, and it makes a huge difference in getting things ready to submit. You ARE thinking of submitting, right, or self publishing on the blog?

      Here is a link to a petition opposing the plan to release and "recycle" this radioactive metal:

      Think of all the products you come in contact with every day that contain metal. Once this contaminated stuff is released and mixed in with the regular scrap metal supply, it will be impossible to avoid unwanted increased exposures.

      Please spread the word about this and voice your opposition to it.

  • Radio VicFromOregon

    @Maggie123. Ok, so, i have a role that i can play in helping, maybe more stabilizing than anything. But, it is up to others to create motion, movement. You are part of that force or energy wave. The eagle is important in this. They said you know about it. I'm not sure what they mean, other than communicating through it or the medicine eagle or as a sign of trust or affirmation? Does this effect their nesting area, perhaps, or egg viability? I don't get them right above often, rarely actually, especially not this time of year, but, i expect to see one in the next day or two since i've been asked to watch for it. These are Traditionalists. This is how they wish to handle it from their end. There are, of course, others who will be helping outside this group. Lots of Whites, too, i hope. And, a really good chance for First Nation folks to work with Whites on this.

    • Maggie123

      More perhaps to be said then I'll likely say here in reply to your fine notes,ThY. Questions also for more complete understanding of your connections but makes sense – I don't often get confirmation, but haven't sought it for a range of reasons. So I operate by 'feel' that is ever-present – and inarticulate – knowing 'solo' is never alone! Many cultures have 'familiarity' to me, some more than others, subcultures too. Eagle? I'll also be more aware with your mention. I've not seen them here at all, but hawk and raven yes. Perhaps as over-arching symbol of N.American ecosystem? Eagles and other wildlife can not be well-served by Utah plan, (too obvious!) A Metis friend I lost 16 mths ago was strongly attuned to eagle and hawk; me – often more land based, "the great bear" and others. My Canadian region under siege (gas incl fracking, coal, for export); said to be covered with rigs and was full enough when I was there! Coal approach is mnt top removal. Wolves the new 'problem' (for ranchers). I assume habitat disruption and displacement one cause. Fix-it plan is shoot them. Real estate continues booming. Developers smile, politicians reassure. I want Guardian's article on Fukushima to find its way to wide public quickly! And for this to be followed by waking! We (humanity) seem deaf and blind to astonishingly powerful "in our faces" reminders that we ourselves create!

      • Radio VicFromOregon

        M123, the flow is the way to go, but, affirmation is good for long distance communications in complex circumstances. I'm sorry to you for the loss of your friend. That is never easy. Maybe he said something or will show you something? These Elders were pretty certain you knew about the eagle already. You might recall something suddenly. Anyway, it's the path or the pattern or the key or approach. I will go back and chat when i'm not so tired. I just took a quick dip into the pool is all and that was what was in the ripples. Loved your post. Hard. yet, hopeful, but, not too hopeful 😉
        Is your blog still up?

        I like your thoughts on soloing is never alone, you got that right. And, i finally learned to accept the many traditions though i have few of my own. Now, i have habits, good ones and bad ones, and a few obsessions, but, ritual has always taken me out of the moment, or maybe even better said, stopped the moment or the intent, rather than deepen it. Just how my mind works. In ayurvedic medicine, i am lots of air, some fire, and a little bit of earth. So, formlessness suits me well.

        A death poem in honor of your friend and our conversation –
        By Koha Tr Yoel Hoffman

        I cast the brush aside –
        from here on
        i'll speak to the moon
        face to face

    Your comments so welcome and valuable as days noticeably shorten, (hills assist – bringing late sunrise, early sunset, so 'shorten' is the case)! Point being 'receptivity', given more night, shifts. Never thought til now – don't think greater, just different. I don't doubt the elders, am honored, will let awareness or events develop. Also never thought of self as 'going with flow' except by accident! 🙂 It has often felt like bumbling about, and has included much complaint from me! A student of Tibetan Buddhism once declared me 'a rock', her confidence a complete surprise! Will reconsider what is meant by 'going with flow' and may congratulate myself. I've only done on-line Ayurvedic 'category', seemed a 'forced fit' so have not pursued but I stay tuned for Ayru. bits, and give them time when they come along. More note exchng perhaps another time. I'm keeping blog aside, "waiting" for concentration time, maybe Jan to March, just before garden/yard beckons? Will be in touch on that. Poem is exquisite, and friend would agree. Thank you. Tired here also. Am signing off from our conversation in the side hallway! 🙂

      M123, i have a new philosophical outlook i developed a couple years back for myself. I used to think that all my suffering and "bumblings", and confusion was brought about cuz i was doing things the hard way instead of going with the flow. Then it occurred to me – this IS the easy way! Yikes!

      • Maggie123

        Vic – I'm very much enjoying this new take on 'flow' experience, thanks. 🙂 !!

        • Radio VicFromOregon

          Me, too. Your post says 5:31am. And, I thought i was a night owl 😉

          • Maggie123

            Vic – acknowledging 'night owl' – habits vary, every so often an 'all nighter'! 🙂 last few days I've sort of slipped into one of my 'other' mind-sets, one that sees me wandering off, checking in with world's other ways of expressing concern. Found a guy from your part of the world, much more conventional involvement with healing the world, but I'm glad I found Rick Steve's YouTube on Iran and and on "Travel as A Political Act". Will post on 'off topic' forum in case they happen to be of interest to others. 🙂

    "Join audiences across the country for the debut screening of '3.11: Surviving Japan', the story of an American volunteer who discovered the Japanese Nuclear disaster cover-up. The screening will benefit the Save Minami-Soma Project, providing clean water and food to citizens still living in radioactive waste. This is an opportunity to keep the spotlight on what is, and is not happening in the clean-up efforts, the proposed dumping of 200,000+ tons highly radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean and its consequences. . Stay informed and let your voice be heard."

    Even just buying a ticket to show your support, though not sure if you can make it, will help 'fund' this showing so it happens!
