| 28 June 2018 | The operator of the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant says work to remove spent nuclear fuel from a cooling pool at one of its reactors may be delayed. A total of 566 fuel units remain in the cooling pool at the No.3 reactor, which suffered a meltdown in 2011. Tokyo Electric Power Company, or TEPCO, planned to start removing the fuel as early as this autumn, as part of the decommissioning of the nuclear complex. But on Thursday, TEPCO revealed the control board of a crane used in the removal malfunctioned during a test run last month.

Horror flash flooding in Maryland has transformed streets into raging, six-foot high rivers as torrential rain soaks much of the state.

Dramatic photos and video emerged showing turbulent torrents of brown water rushing down Main Street in Ellicott City, just outside Baltimore, on Sunday.

The National Weather Service issued a flash flood emergency for the city in the afternoon and Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan declared a state of emergency soon after.

‘This is a catastrophic and life-threatening extremely dangerous situation,’ the weather alert warned.

Glyphosate, the active ingredient in the weed killer Roundup, has been linked with cancer, birth defects, autism and a host of other health problems. Now, explosive new analysis shows that traces of this toxic herbicide are increasingly present throughout our food supply.

In fact, glyphosate is showing up in foods that we most expect to be ‘wholesome and pure’ – such as baby foods, breakfast cereals and honey. (But, adult-only fare is not immune, either; glyphosate has also been found in wine, beer and even table salt!)

And there’s more bad news: a recent study shows that glyphosate levels in humans are increasing exponentially. So, the question remains: what’s behind the rising amounts of glyphosate in our food and our bodies?

Sad but true – the CFL and LED “Energy Efficient” light bulbs we’ve all been told were good for the planet aren’t good for it at all. Additionally, they can also make people and animals very sick. Extensive research has already proven this.

Regardless, many utility companies have been giving customers free CFL and LED light bulbs for many years anyway. Many cities are replacing incandescent light bulbs with LED ones for street lights to save money. There have been many reported problems:

The Enewetak Atoll, a concrete dome, holding the radioactive waste of 43 nuclear explosions is leaking into the ocean, veterans have warned

  • The Enewetak Atoll was used by the US to test weapons between 1948 and 1958
  • More than 8,000 people would later work to clean up these Pacific islands
  • This shifted 110,000 cubic yards of contaminated soil and debris into a crater
  • But now, with the dome weathered by decades of exposure, it’s feared rising seas and storms could see radiation leaking into the ocean

–The amount of radioactive water at Fukushima is still growing, by 150 tons a day. | 26 Nov 2017 | The Japanese government is being urged by experts to gradually release radioactive water in to the Pacific Ocean more than six years after a tsunami overwhelmed the Fukushima nuclear power plant. The water is stored on site in around 900 large and densely packed tanks and could spill should another major disaster strike. The government has been urged to release the water into the ocean as all the radioactive elements of the water except tritium have [*allegedly*] been removed through treatment. But if the tank breaks, the contents may not be able to be controlled.

Japan is poised to flood the Pacific Ocean with one million tons of radioactive water contaminated by the Fukushima nuclear power plant

Everything going on around us; what we are aware of and unaware of all have their roots in Karma and all this karma has its roots in that conversation which took place in that waiting place on another plane, between the lifetimes. There are crusaders at work we are making up for being the violators of what they are presently crusading against. There are people working in Third World countries, atoning for conditions they previously created. There are sidewalk hookers who were formerly pimps. There are people having one bad run of seeming bad luck after another and this is all relevant to past actions. The simplest definition of Karma is, ‘the fruits of actions’. There are children that bad things happen to. There are people winning the lottery. There are people living in war zones and people born into tremendous prosperity and here is where the construct of karma can become incredibly complex. Sometimes there are people who have desired a certain experience for lifetimes and have industriously pursued it and desired after it. They paid their dues and the stage was set. Sometimes there are those who were furiously outraged at certain injustices… or most anything- injustices that weren’t injustices at all but went contrary to the perverted ambitions of a particular individual. They are given the opportunity to have the power to affect any theater in life BUT… they have to pay the going rate in blood, sweat and tears; sometimes over a long period. Anything is possible here. Imagine what it is like to find out how very wrong your agenda turns out to be, or the unexpected results that come about which the person never imagined could take place.

Saving the planet, fixing healthcare, replacing conventional currency—there is apparently nothing that the shared-database technology known as blockchains can’t fix. At least, that’s the impression given by the horde of governments, banks, entrepreneurs, and tech companies working on the technology. But what is a blockchain and why the excitement? If you’ve got 2 minutes, WIRED can explain.

A powerful 6.2 magnitude earthquake has struck off the coast of Japan near Fukushima.

Details of the extent of the damage have not yet emerged regarding the quake which hit 281km South East of Kamaishi.

The depth of the earthquake, which struck at 2.37am local time, was measured at 10km.

A similar earthquake back in 2011 killed 15,894 people and injured 10 more when a tsunami, landslides and fires broke out as a result. But experts are predicting today's quake should pass by without causing any harm

Across central Mexico, rescue workers including soldiers and volunteers worked late into the night Tuesday to free the living who were still trapped in the rubble of collapsed buildings following Mexico’s deadliest earthquake in more than 30 years.

The death toll from the 7.1 magnitude quake – which bizarrely occurred on the anniversary of a 1985 quake that left 5,000 dead – has climbed to 248, with more than half of those deaths occurring in the Mexican capital city.  It also comes two weeks after another powerful quake left nearly 100 dead in Mexico City. The quake was unusually close to Mexico City, located just 60 miles south of the capital in Chiautla de Tapia, a small town in neighboring Puebla state, according to Mexico’s seismological service.
