Apocalyptic Meltdown a Good Chance By Savage_Nature (August 18, 2013)
Source

'If and when the corium reaches the Tokyo aquifer, serious and expedient discussions will have to take place about evacuating 40 million people'

'At least the northern half of Japan would be uninhabitable, and some researchers have argued that it already is'

'The mainstream media, world governments, nuclear agencies, health organizations, weather reporters, and the health care industry has completely ignored three ongoing triple meltdowns that have never been contained'

'As a comparison: Chernobyl was one reactor, in a rural area, a quarter of the size of one of the reactors at Fukushima. There was no 'spent fuel pool' to worry about. Chernobyl was treated in-situ...meaning everything was pretty much left where it was while the effort to contain it was made (and very expeditiously I might add) not only above ground, but below ground.

At Fukushima, we have six top-floor pools all loaded with fuel that eventually will have to be removed, the most important being Reactor 4, although Reactor 3 is in pretty bad shape too. Spent fuel pools were never intended for long-term storage, they were only to assist short-term movement of fuel. Using them as a long-term storage pool is a huge mistake that has become an 'acceptable' practice and repeated at every reactor site worldwide.'

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I remember when the tsunami hit Japan, and the news was telling about the disaster and the loss of life and how terrible it was and the poor people. Along the bottom of the screen was a little font scrolling that read something like "Nuclear reactor in Japan reaches meltdown, containment pools may not have any water left in them." I said, why the fuck aren't they reporting on that? People called me heartless.

So! Odds of apocalypse in the next couple years are fairly good, even if the world governments band together to wrangle this disaster. Anyone for campfires and marshmallows?

Government Officials Admit Aliens Exist By Savage_Nature (August 7, 2013)

I've been saying it forever. Take what you will from this, but this is Earth shaking in my books. Google this, do some research, there is dissent and there is people in agreeance. I sincerely hope the world is ready for something like this. Perhaps once the world realizes our rock is but a speck among many other superior (technologically and mentally) races on many other planets, we can stop shooting each other and work towards advancing ourselves.

More then 700 injured after meteoroid impact By Christian (February 15, 2013)
I guess you heard it already:

Russian meteor causes blast; hundreds injured

Moscow (CNN) -- A meteor streaked through the skies above Russia's southern Chelyabinsk region Friday morning, before exploding with a flash and boom that shattered glass in buildings and left hundreds of people hurt.
The number of people reporting injuries climbed to more than 500 by lunchtime, according to Vladimir Stepanov, of the National Center for Emergency Situations at the Russian Interior Ministry.

[..]The vast majority of injuries are not thought to be serious

More then 6 cities are affected and the number of injured people is raising every half hour. Asteroid 2012 DA14 needs to pass the earth, still, however it's unlikely that both happenings, 2012 DA14 and the impact in Russia, are connected to each other, scientists say.

Supreme Court Upholds Obamacare 5-4 By foxyphoenix (June 28, 2012)
http://www.cnn.com/2012/06/28/politi...html?hpt=hp_t1

Quote:
Washington (CNN) -- In a landmark ruling that will impact the November election and the lives of every American, the U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday upheld the controversial health care law championed by President Barack Obama.
The narrow 5-4 ruling was a victory for Obama but also will serve as a rallying issue for Republicans calling for repeal of the Affordable Care Act passed by Democrats in 2010.
An administration official described the White House reaction as elation, while GOP opponents criticized the high court's reasoning and promised an immediate repeal effort.
"Today's decision was a victory for people all over this country whose lives are more secure because of this law," Obama said in a televised White House statement.

Colorado House panel approves civil unions bill By Madre (May 3, 2012)
By Lynn Bartels
The Denver Post

http://www.denverpost.com/breakingne...il-unions-bill

Nearly two decades after Colorado became known as the "hate state" for passing a ballot measure aimed at gays, a legislative committee approved a bill that allows same-sex couples to enter into civil unions.

Jubilation and tears followed the historic vote Thursday by a Republican-controlled committee that last year defeated a nearly identical bill.

Rep. B.J. Nikkel, R-Loveland, joined with Democrats in passing Senate Bill 2 on a 6-5 vote. She had infuriated some social conservatives by refusing to commit to vote against the measure, saying she wanted to first listen to the testimony.

"I think it was the right thing to do. We're all Coloradans, right?" Nikkel said after voting "yes." "It's not something I'm passionate about, but I think we ought to move forward and bring it to a vote in the House."

The vote followed 3˝ hours of testimony from witnesses and questions from members of the House Judiciary Committee.

Among those who spoke for the measure were three Republicans, parents of gay children and a same-sex couple.

"I'd like to remind my fellow Republicans, the arc of history bends toward justice," said Jack Finlaw, who is gay and is the legal counsel for Gov. John Hickenlooper.

Opponents included a Catholic priest and a man who said that when he engaged in gay sex, he visited strip clubs and participated in orgies.

Former state Sen. Ed Jones, a Colorado Springs Republican who is black and remembers the Ku Klux Klan when growing up in the South, said civil unions are not a civil-rights issue.

"I've never seen a sign that says 'gays are not allowed,' " he said.

Senate Bill 2 now must go to two other committees, Finance and Appropriations, before going to the full House. Supporters say they are worried about tight deadlines with the session ending Wednesday.

"This bill is dead" unless the committee chairman signs off on a report as soon as possible so the bill can go to the next hearing, said Rep. Dan Pabon, D-Denver. Chairman Bob Gardner, R-Colorado Springs, who has three days to sign the report, said he doesn't know when he will sign it.

Republicans have a 33-32 majority in the House, meaning Rep. Mark Ferrandino, D-Denver, who sponsored the bill, needs the vote of only one GOP member to pass the measure.

Earlier Thursday, Ferrandino, who is gay, said that when he told his father he was moving to Colorado, his father brought up the "hate state" moniker.

Amendment 2 prohibited laws protecting gays from discrimination. Voters approved the measure, but it was struck down by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1996.

If Colorado passes SB 2, it will become the ninth state to provide state-level recognition of civil unions or domestic partnerships, said Brad Clark, director of the gay-rights group One Colorado.

Six states and the District of Columbia allow same-sex marriages, which are unconstitutional in Colorado because of a 2006 ballot measure defining marriage as between one man and one woman.

Opponents of civil unions fear the measure is an attempt to undo the Colorado Constitution.

"Civil union laws undermine the case for marriage," said Byron Babione, with the Alliance Defense Fund. "A vote for this is a vote for same-sex marriage."

He added that "men and women still provide the most optimum family environment for children," a comment that set off passionate tweets from those following the hearing.

"ADF lawyer claiming that marriage is ONLY about children. Just not the children of gay parents, apparently," @sunnivie wrote.

Scientists discover virus that kills all grades of breast cancer ‘within seven days’
By Stephen C. Webster
Friday, September 23, 2011 16:48 EDT


Scientists at the Penn State College of Medicine said this week they have discovered a virus that is capable of killing all grades of breast cancer “within seven days” of first introduction in a laboratory setting.

The virus, known as adeno-associated virus type 2 (AAV2), is naturally occurring and carried by up to 80 percent of humans, but it does not cause any disease.

Researchers learned of its cancer-killing properties in 2005, after Penn State scientists observed it killing cervical cancer cells. They also found that women who carried the AAV2 virus and human papillomavirus (HPV), which causes cervical cancer, had a lower propensity to develop cervical cancer.

When combined in a lab recently, AAV2 eradicated all the breast cancer cells “within seven days,” according to researchers. Better still, it proved capable of wiping out cancer cells at multiple stages, negating the need for differing treatments used today.

“If we can determine which viral genes are being used, we may be able to introduce those genes into a [therapy],” explained Penn State research associate Samina Alam. “If we can determine which pathways the virus is triggering, we can then screen new drugs that target those pathways. Or we may simply be able to use the virus itself.”

The Center for Disease Control says that breast cancer is the most common type of cancer affecting American women. Overall, it is second only to lung cancer in causing more deaths than any other form of the disease.

The American Cancer Society estimates that up to 39,520 women in the U.S. will die from cancer just this year, out of about 230,480 new cases discovered by doctors.
