Fukushima leaks: radioactive
water overflows tank

BBC News [UK], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 10/3/2013 3:30:14 AM

Japan´s crippled Fukushima nuclear plant has a new leak of radioactive water which may have entered the Pacific Ocean, its operator says. Workers discovered water overflowing from one of the storage tanks late on Wednesday, plant operator Tepco said. [Snip] "[The contaminated water] went into the drain and we cannot deny the possibility of it having reached the ocean," Tepco official Masayuki Ono told reporters on Thursday. Mr Ono added that the overflow was the result of a worker misjudging how much water could be held in the tank, which was tilting because of an uneven location, reports said.

Congress to block Turkey using
US funds to buy missile system

The US Congress is set to adopt a law next week forbidding Turkey from using American funds to acquire a $4 billion missile system from a Chinese company blacklisted by Washington. The United States has voiced deep concern over Turkey´s decision in September to enter negotiations with China Precision Machinery Export-Import Corporation for its first long-range anti-missile system. CPMIEC, which makes the HQ-9 missile system, is under US sanctions for selling arms and missile technology to Iran and Syria. Turkey´s move also irritated its allies in Nato, which has said missile systems within the transatlantic military

On Thursday, in a plain courtroom in the centre of the North Korean capital, Pyongyang, a 67-year-old man called Jang Song Thaek was sentenced to death as a traitor to his country. His ‘crime’, according to the special military tribunal of the country’s Ministry of State Security, was to attempt ‘to overthrow the state by all sorts of intrigues and despicable methods with a wild ambition to grab the supreme power’. [Snip] Furthermore, he ‘perpetrated thrice-cursed acts of treachery in betrayal of such profound trust and warmest paternal love shown by the Party and the leader for him’. His supposed crimes against the regime included having

America’s friends are left behind

In his oration at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service on Tuesday, Barack Obama asked himself “how well have I applied his lessons in my own life?”, and invited all of us to ask the same question of ourselves. [Snip] His performance reminded me slightly of Tom Lehrer’s Folk Song Army: “We all hate poverty, war and injustice – unlike the rest of you squares.” Such rhetoric is consistent with the tone that Mr Obama has used from the beginning of his presidency, notably when he reached out to Islam in his speech in Cairo in June 2009. It is by now not too early – in some respects, it may even be too late – to ask whether Mr Obama’s

An aviation technician accused of planning to detonate a car bomb at a Kansas airport has been arrested today. Terry Lee Loewen, 58, was arrested on Friday morning at Mid-Continent regional airport in Wichita, according to U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom. [Snip] Grissom said the 58-year-old spent months developing his plan of driving a car filled with explosives into the airport, triggering the bomb and killing himself in a suicide mission. He was arrested at 5.30am this morning after he tried to open a gate on to the tarmac at the airport with his security pass.

A man has been arrested in the US state of Kansas and accused of planning to detonate a suicide car bomb at an airport, authorities have said. Terry Lee Loewen, 58, has been charged with attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction. Mr Loewen, an aviation technician, does not appear to have been affiliated with any religious group, police said. Authorities said Mr Loewen was snared by undercover FBI investigators and the public was never in danger. "There was no breach of Mid-Continent´s Airport´s security," said Kansas US Attorney Barry Grissom in a statement. "At no time was the safety of travellers or members

   

 

  


 
A&E winter crisis deepens as NHS

Under-strain A&E* units have missed the target to see patients within four hours for the first time this winter. In further sign of a growing crisis in emergency departments, the NHS in England failed to ensure that 95 percent cases were dealt with within the time limit. Health bosses said they had always known this winter ‘would be difficult’ but critics said that it could be a sign of worse to come. It is the first time that the four-hour waiting time target has not been met since April and comes amid warnings that expected winter pressures are only just

At least two people were reported to have been shot at a Colorado high school on Friday on the eve of the anniversary of the Sandy Hook elementary school massacre. Police said a student was taken in “serious condition” with a gunshot wound to local hospital after confronting another armed student at about 12.30pm local time. Police said that the suspect was found dead from an apparent self-inflicted wound inside Arapahoe High School in Littleton in the suburban outskirts of Denver. He was a male student at the school who police said wanted to “confront” a teacher at the school. The teacher was

Iran is openly defying the United States, insisting that ´the structure of sanctions has cracked and its collapse has started.´ The statement from Tehran came Thursday night via the state-run FARS news service, even as a top Treasury Department official sought to reassure the world that ´the sanctions pressure on Iran will continue to mount.´ Iran walked out of talks in Geneva designed to implement a deal struck on Nov. 24, following the Obama administration´s decision to take a hard line on enforcing sanctions against companies that assist Tehran with its nuclear program.

A landmark budget agreement that passed in the U.S. House on Thursday faces certain death in the Senate unless at least five Republicans step up to support it--but so far there are no takers at all. The GOP´s Senate leaders plan to launch a procedural effort to kill the plan over a laundry list of objections--including a claim that it short-changes military veterans and other government retirees. Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin conceded that he needs to find Republicans who will vote for the measure after Republicans announced their intention Thursday night to block the deal. ´We need Republican votes to pass

Ten years after the capture of Saddam Hussein, Iraq is at risk of becoming a failed state again as al-Qaeda reclaims vast swathes of the country. Friday’s anniversary of the Iraqi dictator’s arrest sees the country still struggling with his legacy, with al-Qaeda launching a fresh campaign of terrorist atrocities from new territory carved out in western and northern Iraq. Backed by jihadists fighting the civil war in neighbouring Syria, the group is trying to create an “emirate” straddling the two countries, taking advantage of the collapse in security across the border. Road signs have even been put up proclaiming

In June 2013 the doors of cell block A suddenly swung open in the Turner Guildford Knight Correctional Centre in Miami, Florida. And block B. In fact, every cell door in the prison. The reason? A computer malfunction. The prison had recently linked its security locks to the internet. More and more things are going online, most worryingly our "critical national infrastructure"--a technical term for what essentially means "if it breaks we’re all f–––––"--water systems, power grids, telecommunications, banking services. Connectivity makes them vulnerable to disruption too: from hackers, from serious criminals who are increasingly inching online, from hostile foreign

Let me begin with a categorical statement that, given current events and recent political history, can be easily defended: Barack Hussein Obama is a willful, indoctrinated child of the Left with strong Islamic sympathies who is not fit to govern. Indeed, he would not be fit to govern Lower Slobovia, let alone the United States of America. Obama is a historic disaster of the first magnitude and, if not restrained, he will see to the irrevocable decline of the country which foolishly elected him, leaving the world on the brink of a conflict — or in the midst of one — whose repercussions cannot be underestimated.

In his 1952 book The Origins of Totalitarian Democracy, Israeli historian J. L. Talmon described a political system in which lawfully elected representatives rule a nation state whose citizens, although granted the right to vote, have little or no participation in the decision-making process of government. The federal government has become such a system, an entity unto itself operating outside of Constitutional constraints and unaccountable to the American people. The United States is now controlled by a Democratic and Republican ruling class that transcends government and sees itself as distinct from the rest of society and as the only element that may

Fox News host Megyn Kelly has made herself the center of a racial controversy by declaring that Jesus Christ and Santa Claus are white. On Wednesday night, Kelly was responding to an article by Slate writer Aisha Harris, who wrote an article entitled “ Santa Claus Should Not Be a White Man Anymore .” The popular news host told viewers of “The Kelly File,” her hit FNC program, “When I saw this headline, I kinda laughed and I said, ‘Oh, this is ridiculous.

Columnist Charles Krauthammer attacked new Obamacare rules unveiled by HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in a late Thursday conference call, saying the Obama administration is “approach[ing] banana republic lawlessness” by issuing the decrees. Krauthammer spoke with Fox News’ Bret Baier on a panel with Juan Williams and Judge Andrew Napolitano, as the three reacted to Sebelius’ new directives for insurance companies. “This is exactly a reaction to a deep understanding among Democrats that [Obamacare] is a train wreck,” he said. “And it’s a panic reaction. As the judge said, this is utterly lawless. This now approaches banana republic lawlessness.

Early news reports have identified the Arapahoe High School gunman as Karl Halverson Pierson, an 18-year-old student. Pierson is believed to be responsible for wounding one other student before shooting and killing himself with a shotgun. The Denver Post reports that Pierson had "very strong political beliefs" and that one Facebook post he authored tore into Republicans as political party that wanted to let people die: "[Y]ou republicans are so cute" and posting an image that reads: "The Republican Party: Health Care: Let ´em Die, Climate Change: Let ´em Die, Gun Violence: Let ´em Die, Women´s Rights: Let ´em Die,

The parents of Trayvon Martin met with publishers this week to shop a book about their son, the unarmed black teenager who was shot and killed in Florida in 2012. According to two publishing executives who participated in meetings, Mr. Martin’s parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, said they intended to write a book that gives the full picture of their son while tracing their own experience of shock and sorrow. The meetings were described as somber and moving by publishers who were present. Ms. Fulton and Mr. Martin were accompanied by Jan Miller, their Dallas-based literary agent.

WASHINGTON – It’s not exactly a ringing endorsement of the budget deal.“Embrace the suck,” House minority leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi told fellow Democrats Thursday morning, a source told Politico.“We need to get this off the table so we can go forward,” she added. It’s a way of telling her colleagues the budget deal negotiated with Republicans is the best they can get. Democrats are fuming that the bipartisan budget deal doesn’t extend unemployment benefits for more than a million Americans. One of Pelosi’s top lieutenants, Rep. Chris Van Hollen, the top Democrat on the House Budget Committee, said Thursday it

Fearing that many people will think they have health insurance coverage when they do not, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is "urging" insurance companies to "give consumers additional time to pay their first month´s premium and still have coverage beginning Jan. 1, 2014." Insurance companies should cover people who haven´t yet paid, in other words. With just a few weeks to go until Obamacare takes full effect, Sebelius announced additional changes on Thursday, some that tell insurance companies how to run their business and others that "strongly" encourage insurance companies to waive their rules -- on premium payments,

In a game-changer for the legal fight over same-sex marriage that gives credence to opponents’ “slippery slope” arguments, a federal judge has now ruled that the legal reasoning for same-sex marriage means that laws against polygamy are likewise unconstitutional. In his 91-page opinion in Brown v. Buhman, on Dec. 13, U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups struck down Utah’s law making polygamy a crime. In so doing, he may have opened Pandora’s Box. As a condition for becoming a state in 1896, Congress required Utah to outlaw polygamy, which is marriage between three or more persons. This case involved a family of

What we know: Racism has left a vast legacy of violence. Bigotry in America has marginalized a diverse range of minority culture. It dashes the hopes of children. What we didn´t know: Bias based on race costs the United States a shade under $2 trillion a year.
