| 15 April 2016 | German energy giants EnBW and RWE have admitted that employees did not carry out routine safety readings on equipment measuring radioactivity at their nuclear power stations, but pretended they had. Both workers were immediately barred from the premises and then dismissed. Regional public broadcaster SWR, which broke the story, reported on Thursday that EnBW’s power station in Philippsburg, Baden-Württemberg, had been shut down by the state Environment Ministry until a mandatory inquiry was completed. RWE’s nuclear power station in Biblis, Hesse, has been shut down since 2011, but radioactivity levels are still being monitored there.

The melt down of three nuclear reactors at Fukushima in the wake of the earthquake and tsunami of 11th March 2011 seems to have quietly slipped out of our collective awareness – as quietly as the cauldrons of radioactive elements that were once within the active cores of the reactors invisibly bleed into the groundwaters and seawaters of the region. This event has become yet another minor detail in the distorted mosaic of ruin that mirrors the latter days of a civilisation in free-fall.

Arnie Gundersen is looking a little weathered these days. He has just returned from a five-week long speaking tour of Japan. He spent much of that time in the company of many whose lives have been indelibly seared by the Fukushima catastrophe. What he reports is unlikely to appear in the mainstream media, but such has ever been the case when it comes to the hidden machinations of big government and big business.’

‘The dreaded day is nearly upon millions of Americans to file their taxes. On the eve of the April 18 deadline, the taxpayer-in-chief’s return is under scrutiny after it was released Friday.

US President Barack Obama and his spouse Michelle had an adjusted gross income of $436,065, nearly 9 percent less than the year before, which could mean they are no longer part of “The One Percent”.

The bar in 2013 was $428,713, according to the US census, but the 2015 level won’t be known for a number of months.’

April 16 is the beginning of a pesticide-bacteria spraying program in western Washington, authorized by the Washington State Department of Agriculture. The stated purpose is to kill Asian and European gypsy moths…

…Approved by authorities and opposed by many people, they decided to spray a bacteria with pesticide properties called Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt), the bacteria from which a gene comes that is used in GM crops to kill insects…

…Does anybody have a problem with this? Given the shady history of the US government testing harmful bacteria on civilians, such as San Francisco or New York City in 1966 Navy Operation Sea Spray, citizens would be wise to test the state and somehow observe for themselves what is happening here.’

“The Golan Heights will remain in the hands of Israel forever,” Netanyahu said at the beginning of a cabinet meeting in the occupied territory on Sunday.

He said he held the first cabinet meeting there to “send a clear message: Israel will never withdraw from the Golan Heights.”’

Jajuan Latham died of a gunshot wound to the head, Knoxville police said Sunday.

He had attended a basketball game in honor of his cousin Zaevion Dobson, a rising Tennessee high school football star, who died while shielding his friends in a December shooting that drew attention from President Barack Obama.

Authorities said Latham was in the back of his father’s parked vehicle at Knoxville park on Saturday when shooting erupted between park attendees and occupants of two passing vehicles.

Hubert Latham, Jajuan’s father, told WATE-TV that the pair attended the game earlier that day at Fulton High School.

There has been much confusion, at time quite angry, how in the aftermath of the Soros-funded Panama Papers revelations few, if any, prominent U.S. name emerged as a result of the biggest offshore tax leak in history. Now, thanks to McClatchy more U.S. names are finally being revealed and it will probably come as little surprise that many of the newly revealed names have connection to both Bill and Hillary Clinton.

As McClatchy writes, donors to Clinton foundation used the Panamanian law firm for offshores, adding that the connections come from the more than 40 years Bill and Hillary Clinton have spent in public life. Ironically this comes just days after Hillary criticized those exposed in the Panama Papers, accusing them of looking to hide their wealth.

As McClatchy reports, Hillary Clinton recently blasted the hidden financial dealings exposed in the Panama Papers, but she and her husband have multiple connections with people who have used the besieged law firm Mossack Fonseca to establish offshore entities.
