Thanks GR. Thats what I dont understand, the way the channel bends to the left. As well as there being a depth to the channel that doesnt allow for the waves to form at all. Im going to go back over some older overflights,sat photos, but if memory serves, the waves used to break and roll right up to the discharge canal and along the quay wall. In fact I remember seeing one wave from an overflight vid that formed a perfect left breaking right against the quay wall and it ran into the canal with no drop off depth.

And even if thats not the case, if they stopped using the discharge canal then by now it would have filled in with sand and the waves would be breaking along the quay and into the canal.

Hmmmmm. Something weird there. Ill dig up some older stuff and see if it makes any sense.

Theyre working full bore on Mizunami. Thats the one going through crystalline rock. I think the other one up north in sedimentary rock is almost completed but I may be confusing the two. as you can see from the pic below they forgot to list their illegal underground weapons factory in between the two. Ill send them a note

Interesting. No other monitoring site posted that wrinkle in either Ibaraki or Fukushima. I suspect that a dust cloud got blwon up and into that particular monitoring post. But thats of course just a guess.

Going through the site I came across this map showing all local monitoring sites. Notice that there are still to this day no monitoring sites south and southwest of the plant. You can draw a line from Fuku to Horiguchi and not hit one other monitoring site.



If that map is correct its pretty obvious that they dont want people to know about the levels of radiation in those areas.

And as an aside, in the chap on media, I keep coming across two people who went out of their way to make sure that everyone knew that radiation was not a concern anywhere in the world except in the area already evacuated near the plant.

Amano and Edano. these two people need to be arrested ASAP. Below is a typical article from the time period. Amano sure looks like an alien doesnt he.

that article you posted Z really pisses me off. i just never fathomed the level of deception tptb would use to avoid having to fix their mess. the rad levels are real and just from this morning's reading i got, it's gamma all the way it seems.

no amount a rads are "safe" never have been never will be. we tolerate the natural occurring levels because we evolved to, but the amount and types of isotopes we have now, we never had a chance to adapt to, cumulative by nature as it is.

I dont think anyone did. Fukushima made alot of people hit the wall. Its been a mind boggling experience.

And it doesnt seem to end. This is from the NY Times www.nytimes.com/2012/05/22/us/gregory-jaczko-to-resign-as-nrc-chairman-after-stormy-tenure.html?_r=2

Theyre getting rid of Jaczko. I figured this would happen. He was beginning to question nuclear safety too much. And the games continue.

ON EDIT: This is just spooky. From ENENEWS a high ranking government official, when asked why they werent considering the possibility of R4 collapsing, replied



After the Fukushima accident, we must no longer use the term “safe” without evaluating actual risk.


Uhmm. Werent they supposed to do that before Fukushima. That statement is either a mis translation, or an incredibly revealing remark. The Japanese people only approved of nuclear power because they were assured that all risks had been calculated and the so-called 'safety in depth' (I think thats what its called) assured absolute safety.

Now they say they have never considered the risks till after Fukushima. Wow. More people to arrest. I hope Japan has alot of open cells in their prisons cause theyre gonna need them.

The Manhattan Project's Fatal "Demon Core"

Monday, 21May12

Sixty six years ago today, Louis Slotin saw a flash of blue light in the depths of Los Alamos National Laboratory. Seconds before, all that separated the young scientist from a lethal dose of radiation was a thin screwdriver. The screwdriver supported a reflective covering that encased a sphere of plutonium, and if the reflector fell into place, a nuclear chain reaction would commence. When Slotin's hand slipped, a lethal burst of radiation hit him, and he died nine days later.

One year later, the U.S. military detonated this plutonium "demon core" at the Bikini Atoll in the Pacific Ocean. But the legacy of the demon core -- and its victims -- has endured.

...
When detonating a weapon, however, uncontrolled reactions are optimal. Bomb makers can combine more nuclear material so that the delayed neutrons don't affect the chain reaction. With enough material under the right conditions, an explosion will occur.


It also says this too which really downplays the whole issue.

But that wasn't the case in the two Los Alamos accidents. After dropping the screwdriver, Slotin separated the radioactive materials, and he has been credited with saving the other people in the room. Although they all were exposed to radiation, no one died of radiation poisoning except for Slotin. The conditions for the two accidents were unsafe enough to emit radiation, but there weren't enough ingredients to blow up the building.


If the building was blown up, then probably a whole lot more (like miles radius) would have been destroyed too. Our scientists are tinkering with this kind of thing every day.

Hello all, long time... thought I would drop in and see how things are going. Seems like a TON of great work has been going on and good to see you all going strong and steady.

Has anyone posed this (apparently unit 4 explosion) yet?



Especially interesting at 1:14 in.

Anyhow, going to be posting geiger counter readings soon from beautiful BC. Bug out bag is packed. Also, anyone who has few extra bucks and needs to take a car/pets/furniture etc, you can check out cargo ship passage to south america www.cargoshipvoyages.com...

Facility: BRAIDWOOD, IL




ULTRASONIC EXAMINATION RESULTS IN AN INDICATION ON THE REACTOR PRESSURE VESSEL HEAD PENETRATION



On April 23, 2012, during the Braidwood Station Unit 1 refueling outage, it was determined that the results of planned ultrasonic (UT) examinations performed on one penetration (Penetration No. 69) did not meet the applicable acceptance criteria, requiring repair prior to returning the reactor pressure vessel head to service. A portion of the indication was conservatively assumed to be within the J-groove weld. At the time of the examination, the Braidwood Station Unit 1 reactor pressure vessel head was classified as a low susceptibility head. The cause of the recordable indication is attributed to Primary Water Stress Corrosion Cracking. The examinations were being performed to meet the requirements of 10 CFR 50.55a(g)(6)(ii)(D) and ASME Code Case N-729-1, to ensure the structural integrity of the reactor pressure vessel head pressure boundary. All of the remaining penetrations have been examined during the current refueling outage. Repairs to Penetration No. 69 were completed prior to commencing startup. No other repairs were required. "This is reportable pursuant to 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(ii)(A) since the as found indication did not meet the applicable acceptance criteria referenced in ASME Code Case N-729-1 to remain in-service without repair. "The NRC Resident Inspector has been notified." As a result of a follow-up review, at 0600 CDT on 05/18/12, the licensee determined this was an 8 hour reportable event while Unit 1 was in Mode 4. The licensee did not determine this was a reportable event immediately after the UT was conducted on April 23, 2012. The unit is currently in Mode 3. Reactor Vessel Head Penetration No. 69 is a control rod penetration. Reactor Coolant Leakage test are satisfactory and there are no indications of boron buildup on the Reactor Vessel Head. Control rod testing has not yet been performed.

Concerning Jaczko's retirement, ex-NRC commissioner Bradford stated that;



“In Washington, you’ve got a situation where the ‘nuclear party’ transcends the Republican and Democratic party,”


He made a mistake. He should have said the 'grid party' (which includes the nuclear industry) CONTROLS the Republican and Democratic parties. Or better yet the 'grid party' has two faces, republican and democrat.

This is what the NRC says about primary water stress corrosion cracking. This is a failure phenomenon that is different than embrittlement.



Control rod drive mechanism nozzles and other vessel head penetration nozzles welded to the upper reactor vessel head are subject to another phenomenon – primary water stress corrosion cracking. The issue is a potential safety concern because a nozzle with sufficient cracking could break off during operation. This would compromise the integrity of the reactor coolant system pressure boundary – one of three primary barriers that protect the public from exposure to radiation. The break may also result in the ejection of a control rod, which could damage nearby components.


Just another way to nuke the world.

Super bugs are created by man breaking leviticus chapter 18 and Sorcery(pharmacy), not the radiation, so lets not read too much into a disaster that is already bad enough. The path has been shown and is clear and that strain was around long before march 11th, but of course if you didn't know that it would seem possible.

River Bend, LA: After a Hot Shutdown and Fire...




The plant is conducting causal investigations...



"At 1452 CDT on 5/21/2012 with the reactor at 100% power, River Bend Station experienced a reactor scram resulting from an RPS actuation. Following the scram, reactor water level briefly lowered below level 3. The reactor is stable with pressure and temperature being controlled by the feed water system and main steam bypass valves, respectfully. The cause of the scram was due to a turbine trip/low condenser vacuum. The low vacuum condition resulted from a loss of non-safety related 4160V switchgear that powers two of four circulating water pumps. "A suspected spurious Division II isolation of Reactor Core Isolation Cooling (RCIC) was observed. Restoration of RCIC to standby is in progress. "A report of a fire in a manhole was received shortly after the scram . Fire Brigade was dispatched and noted a small active fire in a cable tray. The fire was extinguished with fire extinguishers. Power cables are routed through this manhole. "The plant is conducting causal investigations to fully understand the cause of the turbine trip. As information becomes available, River Bend Station will provide additional information." All rods are inserted, and the plant is in a normal shutdown electrical lineup with the exception of NNS-Switchgear 2A being deenergized. Offsite assistance was not required to extinguish the fire.

I agree its most likely from the overuse of the pharmaceutical drugs. But science doesnt have a clue what part radiation plays because theyve never looked. Nor do they want to know, which is why its important to question. Until an honest assessment is made by honest scientists (ie not under corporate control) that shows how radiation doesnt affect the creation of stronger strains of illness, Ill keep that chapter open.

Like This Is a Suprise?




Fukushima reactor vessel may be leaking water




Japanese scientists say cooling water may be leaking from a second reactor at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant. They say the water level of the reactor's containment vessel is much shallower than previously thought. Researchers at the government-backed Japan Nuclear Energy Safety Organization analyzed the internal pressure and other data from the No.1 reactor. They say the water in the vessel is about 40 centimeters deep. The plant's operator, Tokyo Electric Power Company, says the water should have a depth of about 2 meters. They say water may be leaking from a hole in a pipe 40 centimeters from the bottom of the vessel. The pipe is connected to the suppression chamber below. The hole is estimated to be 2 centimeters across. The power company says that despite the low water level, the nuclear fuel in the vessel is sufficiently cooled at about 30 degrees Celsius. In March, the utility used an endoscope to find that the water level inside the No.2 reactor had fallen to 60 centimeters. The water leaks at the two reactors could make the task of decommissioning the plant more difficult. The utility plans to fill the containment vessels with water to remove melted fuel.

more proof of what i posted.

A woman claiming to have a 'surgically implanted' device caused a plane from PAris to the US to be diverted. 2 f-15's escorted the plane to an airfield in Maine. Is this a dry run reaction or something that will again be brushed away so we continue to fly happily with threats. This is a US bound flight so it is not just a drunk in Vegas.
