  • Behemoth the huntsman was this week handed into The Australian Reptile Park
  • The 16cm creepy crawly has been pictured dwarfing a regular-sized huntsman
  • Staff at the park believe the huge huntsman could be the world’s largest
  • Last year, Charlotte the huntsman went viral after being found in Queensland

Bad news for those who came out of hiding after Charlotte the huntsman crawled over the globe – there’s a new mammoth spider in town.

Last November, Charlotte sent the internet into a spin after she was snapped on a broom head in a farm in Queensland’s Brisbane Valley.

Now, a new creepy crawly dubbed Behemoth has clambered into The Australian Reptile Park in Somersby, NSW. And staff are wagering he gives his female predecessor ‘a run for her money.’

Spine-chilling snapshots show the 16cm arachnid dwarfing a regular-sized huntsman, before stretching its hulking frame around a tree trunk.

n 2011, with foresight and scientific analysis Dr. Helen Caldicott focussed on the implications of the Fukushima disaster at a Press Conference in Montreal organized by Global Research. The 2011 GRTV video presentation featuring Dr. Caldicott tells us the truth. This is the most devastating catastrophe in human history.  And six years ago Helen Caldicott analyzed in detail the significance of this tragic event. (M. Ch)

Dr Helen Caldicott, explains recent robot photos taken of Fukushima’s Daiichi nuclear reactors: radiation levels have not peaked, but have continued to spill toxic waste into the Pacific Ocean — but it’s only now the damage has been photographed. 

Recent reporting of a huge radiation measurement at Unit 2 in the Fukushima Daichi reactor complex does not signify that there is a peak in radiation in the reactor building. All that it indicates is that, for the first time, the Japanese have been able to measure the intense radiation given off by the molten fuel, as each previous attempt has led to failure because the radiation is so intense the robotic parts were functionally destroyed.

Satellite image shows damage at Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant (via ecowatch.com).

The radiation measurement was 530 sieverts, or 53,000 rems (Roentgen Equivalent for Man). The dose at which half an exposed population would die is 250 to 500 rems, so this is a massive measurement. It is quite likely had the robot been able to penetrate deeper into the inner cavern containing the molten corium, the measurement would have been much greater. These facts illustrate why it will be almost impossible to “decommission” units 1, 2 and 3 as no human could ever be exposed to such extreme radiation. This fact means that Fukushima Daichi will remain a diabolical blot upon Japan and the world for the rest of time, sitting as it does on active earthquake zones.

| 02 Feb 2017 | Record high radiation levels that’s lethal even after brief exposure have been detected at a damaged reactor at the Fukushima power plant in Japan. Specialists also found a hole, likely caused by melted nuclear fuel. Radiation levels of up to 530 Sieverts per hour were detected inside an inactive Reactor 2 at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex damaged during the 2011 earthquake and tsunami catastrophe, Japanese media reported on Thursday citing the plant operator, Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO). A dose of about 8 Sieverts is considered incurable and fatal.

‘Shingles, also known as “zoster” or “herpes zoster,” will affect roughly 1 out of every 3 American adults during their lifetime. Estimates suggest that there are upwards of one million cases of shingles each year in the United States. The disease is caused by dormant varicella zoster virus — the same virus that causes chicken pox. It is fairly well known that a history of having had chicken pox puts you at risk of developing shingles in your elder years.

But, did you know that the shingles vaccine could raise the risk of someone else getting chicken pox?’

For at least a decade we have been told by the UN/IPCC, by most government media and officials, by many politicians, and by the Green “charities” and their media friends that “the science is settled”.

We are lectured by Hollywood stars, failed politicians and billionaire speculators that anyone who opposes the World War on Carbon Dioxide is ignorant, mischievous or supporting some hidden vested interest.

We endure calls for an end to free speech for climate sceptics, smearing with derogatory terms like “denier”, and even aggressive punishments like dismissal and legal action against sceptics for speaking out. The new low is the use of anti-racketeer legislation against sceptics:

https://wattsupwiththat.com/2016/08/29/rico-charges-against-climate-deniers-a-case-of-goose-andgander/

We notice the sudden and unexplained denial of pre-booked sceptic conference facilities and the steadfast refusal of alarmists to debate facts and issues.

Why are they so afraid of words? Surely this is a sign that their facts are shonky and their arguments are feeble? They fear they are losing the confidence of the public.

The tide is turning, and informed opposition is growing. It is time for the thinking media to give sceptical evidence and conclusions a fair go in the court of public opinion.

In a short time with no costly international meetings and very little publicity, Clexit has gathered the support of over 115 members in 20 countries. Please look at the list of Foundation Members and countries:

| 27 June 2016 | (Scriba, NY) The FitzPatrick nuclear plant, the source of a visible oil slick on Lake Ontario, had to be shut down manually Friday after a loss of power caused water pumps to stop working. The plant remains in cold shutdown today, according to federal regulators. The problems Friday started when a circuit breaker tripped at 12:15 p.m., according to a report filed with the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. A pump in the reactor cooling system also tripped offline, forcing operators to manually shut the reactor down at 12:36 p.m., the report said.

‘Every day we are flooded with the newest that science has to offer. From morning talk shows and late night news to our social media feeds, it seems like there is a study to prove just about anything. I don’t know how many times I’ve come across a study that proves one thing and then another that proves the exact opposite. In such a climate, how are we ever expected to find out the truth and differentiate the facts from the bullshit?

But the problem doesn’t lie within the scientific method itself, but rather the way the scientific community operates.

On factor at play here is money. Scientists are often paid to publish specific studies with specific outcomes, based on the vested interests that are funding the studies. Basically, if a company wants a certain result, they can pay a scientist to find that outcome by any means necessary — even if those means include sacrificing the very integrity of the study.’

Failing institutions, nations or empires are often run by people whose capacities reflect the deteriorating material conditions. The greater the crisis, the more likely that morally crippled, mentally challenged or psychologically disturbed leadership may assert command. But when disastrous conditions are systemic and transcend borders, the weapons handled by the incompetents are the most lethal in recorded history and the area blanketed in propaganda and ignorance extends from municipality to province to nation, far more than a local population is under assault.

As the international political economic crisis becomes more serious the reaction from capital takes on a more desperate nature. Growing evidence of environmental disaster under the popular marketing title of “climate change” combines with national struggles against the amassing of incredible minority profits while the burden of losses spreads to a greater majority than ever and leads to more vicious suppression and more angry reactions. As each new social rupture and ecological threat makes the situation more dangerous, at the same time previously silent masses are aroused into serious democratic activity that makes it more hopeful.

All over the world people are showing their disgust with establishment political rule and even if seemingly moving in all political directions at once, so much popular movement is itself a positive sign for humanity.

Many of those once doing reasonably well in the developed world, dubbed a middle class even in supposedly class free societies, are slipping into greater hardship and with good reason fear the future. The majority of humanity absorbing loss so that a relatively tiny minority can profit has grown in numbers and at the same time has access to communications tools that threaten minority power as never before. This positive change among budding democratic majorities is unfortunately more than balanced by that minority ruling class and its loyal employees still in control of enough wealth and weaponry to destroy everything and everyone if their regime continues.

Capital’s counter-attack has been perhaps more bloody than ever in places like the middle east where nations have been destroyed, hundreds of thousands murdered and refugees scattered as never before, and more political where it is not powerful enough to use military brute force and relies on money with which to buy governments, media and rely on mental rather than physical control.

An attempted military coupe in Venezuela when the charismatic Chavez was alive was quickly over turned by popular power. But now, even with a much less popular leader, capital can only work through its economic channels to make the economy “scream” – the policy of the USA that destroyed Chile’s attempt at liberation from imperial rule in the 1970s – rather than attempt a military takeover. Nevertheless, it is blatantly activating major steps within its rule of law – guaranteed to maintain minority control – to bring down a democratically elected government desperately trying to represent the previously disregarded. The same is true for Brazil, where an elected leader is threatened with impeachment by the minority power of financial wealth, both Brazilian and international, but with no military steps as yet taken.

After economic bludgeoning of these and other nations which attempt to govern on behalf of majorities instead of minorities, masses of people are manipulated into blaming the elected forces attempting to perform on their behalf despite national and global impediments, thereby hopefully softening them into acceptance of anti-democratic but not blatant military takeover as in the past. That situation can change in a moment as desperation grows and the mental crisis center atmosphere drives the homicidals among the ruling group to take more drastic action.

This is part of the growing weakness on the part of capital that makes it more susceptible to democratic movements for change and at the same time more threatening to take irrational actions that could be much worse than anything in the past. Those actions can be more viciously economic, as in Greece and now attempted in France, quietly but just as savagely carving up Africa into post colonial market enclaves assuring more poverty and suffering among that continents majority, or carefully and nervously watching events unfold at the diminished and weakening but still center of global capital in the USA.

There, contradictions can be seen in a presidential campaign in some ways as long and boring as usual, but in others more exciting a harbinger of change than at any time in recent history. Two populist candidates from what passes for a left and right are representative of the disgust with regular party politics, fear of what is happening to ordinary people and the economy, and real desire to remake and reshape the nation. Whether that desire ultimately brings America closer to achieving peace, social justice and environmental balance remains to be seen since that can only come through radical political economic change. While that is hardly being offered even by the left populist, its desire seems to be growing in popular consciousness as movements include not only old political activist groups but now newer and larger ones including some who have never had political experience before.

While major media and much of what passes for alternative voices continue the skepticism that helps make such change impossible, an uncommon out pouring of citizens seem to be making it inevitable, even if lacking a united majority at this moment. Rest assured, whatever and whomever the candidates of the major party may be, the social ferment will continue and demands for radical change will grow because they have to in order to assure a future for not only the majority, but really humanity.

The increased pressures on imperial control are leading to dangerous situations regarding newer capitalist states like China and especially Russia, where U.S. government and media portray a menace seemingly beyond the past fiction of communism. Hardly a day passes without the main establishment voices carrying items about Russian treachery, Putin’s maniacal lust for power, China’s arrogance and other fictional tales accepted by citizens with nowhere else to find news or analysis given that much of what passes for alternative media adopts the same party line.

Some previously sober sounding observers of the international scene invoke near panic over potential nuclear war and even if they over react, the situation warrants reasoned intervention by a democratic force before the irrationals destroy far more than their own personal fortunes. Fears of a future environmental breakdown to be experienced by our children and grandchildren miss the potential for political breakdown of a far more deadly and serious nature. This can come about much sooner than later if we allow control to remain in the hands of minority billionaires ruling over a private profit motivated scheme that worships market forces as a perverse deity threatening all of humanity. There needs to be a crisis intervention exercised by global forces of democracy that represent the interest of the overwhelming majority now paying the deadly price for a small group to live in obscene but temporary luxury that can bring about permanent, disastrous and final poverty for all of us if it isn’t stopped.

‘The Fukushima clean-up team remains in the dark about the exact locations of 600 tons of melted radioactive fuel from three devastated nuclear reactors, the chief of decommissioning told the ABC’s Foreign Correspondent program in an exclusive interview.

The company hopes to locate and start removing the missing fuel from 2021, the Tokyo Electric Power Company’s (TEPCO) chief of decommissioning at Fukushima, Naohiro Masuda, revealed.

The fuel extraction technology is yet to be elaborated upon, he added.’

‘Russia’s Vladimir Putin is taking a bold step against biotech giant Monsanto and genetically modified seeds at large. In a new address to the Russian Parliament Thursday, Putin proudly outlined his plan to make Russia the world’s ‘leading exporter’ of non-GMO foods that are based on ‘ecologically clean’ production.

Perhaps even more importantly, Putin also went on to harshly criticize food production in the United States, declaring that Western food producers are no longer offering high quality, healthy, and ecologically clean food.

“We are not only able to feed ourselves taking into account our lands, water resources – Russia is able to become the largest world supplier of healthy, ecologically clean and high-quality food which the Western producers have long lost, especially given the fact that demand for such products in the world market is steadily growing,”’

‘According to a study published by the International Journal of Electrochemical Science, you may want to think twice before wrapping your food in aluminum foil to cook it — because some of that foil will leach into your meal.

“Aluminum foil used in cooking provides an easy channel for the metal to enter the human body,” concludes the study, which examined the effect foil has on a variety of different foods when used to prepare them.

The human body is wired to excrete small amounts of aluminum quite efficiently, so minimal exposure to the metal isn’t a concern. The World Health Organization (WHO) has even established daily intake levels of aluminum that have been shown to cause no harm.’
