Forget Surfing or Eating Fish for the Next 6000 Years! Fukushima radiation hits San Francisco

By DNA | December 26, 2013

 

This shocking video was taken December 23rd 2013 with a quality Geiger Counter at Pacifica State Beach (Surfers Beach), California.

Background radiation is 30 CPM. Near the ocean it’s 150 CPM. The fine mist coming from the ocean waves seems to be what makes the Geiger Counter jump.

We all must come to the realization that swimming in the Pacific Ocean (let alone eating anything out of it) is a thing in the past. And it’s only going to get worse, as it’s unstoppable. This is by far the worst man-made disaster in human history, and our garbage media and government say nothing.

Small Portions of Hope for the Construction Industry

For building firms and their suppliers this week’s “Government Construction Summit” has offered some mixed messages for the future.  The summit focussed closely on government procurement policies and efficiency savings; but amidst a rash of cuts in government spending, what do these efficiencies amount to?  Both the cabinet office minister Francis Maude and his chief construction advisor Paul Morrell outlined the current position for the construction industry and their own thinking on government building contracts, strategy and procurement.  The summit had a keen focus on both saving money, with some suggestions of possible opportunities for the building industry.

Government Streamlining

Building firms, however, may be less interested in how the government proposes to streamline its processes and more on the availability of construction contracts.  The summit showed that last year the number of contracts for new schools fell by thirty per cent while for roads the figure was nearly fifty per cent.  For many this is no surprise as the government’s austerity measures begin to bite and the effect on the construction industry has been clear with big names such as John Doyle going into administration last month and the subsequent loss of 290 jobs.  Like many other suppliers to the construction industry Doyle’s disappearance from the industry is a significant indicator of the effect that the lack of large scale projects is having on the industry.

Future PFI Contracts?

The Private Finance Initiative (PFI) sector has provided a good market for construction firms in the past, however, at the summit the Treasury’s Infrastructure Unit could only announce that plans for the successor to the initiative will be made clear well before the autumn, and could be available in the next few weeks.  If this raised hopes for construction firms the statement was qualified by the statement that ‘we have had the largest successful investment in s social infrastructure since the Second World War already.  That “already” may be one that suggests there may not be much more on the PFI front planned for the near future.

It’s taking part that matters (if you’ve paid your entry fee)

Despite a cast of thousands in construction terms, the Olympian task of constructing the facilities for the Games Atkins remains the only construction company permitted to use its involvement in the project for marketing purposes.  This was confirmed at the summit, although smaller contractors were advised they could always tell prospective clients that they had been involved.  Sort of along the lines of “It was this big. Honest”.  Having paid for the privilege, it seems that Atkins intend to hold onto their exclusivity, while the smaller firms who have helped to make the Games possible will receive marginally less recognition than your average torch bearer.

Good Tsunamis

Tsunamis are not normally considered a great idea, but Terry Fuller the Homes and Communities Executive director promised one is on its way for construction firms, as housing finances are handed back to local councils.  This particular mega-wave is expected to come in the form of a flood of building contracts, according to Fuller, as councils rush to spend their new found rental income.  On the same theme Fuller disclosed that social housing landlords who fail to meet construction targets may have their funding removed and passed onto others, to ensure enough homes are built on time.

Mixed Messages

Overall the summit provided a glum picture of the construction industry at present, despite the major construction projects promised in the form of nuclear power plants and at least one high speed rail link in coming years.  While the government’s plans to rationalise its spending may not be of much interest to building firms, the changes to funding for housing could offer some hope, as could changes in the way grants are administered to social housing.  For construction firms, large or small, finding their own efficiency savings seems to be the order of the day.

For all sectors in the construction industry, from concrete batch plants suppliers to scaffolding firms, the governments summit this week has provide small portions of hope and some very mixed messages.

The Latest of the Persistent “Verizon” Identity Theft Attempts

This might be amusing if it weren’t so scary.  It is sent to multiple addresses, and I don’t have an account with them, but some people might fall for this and click on the links.  If you do, and you don’t have a really good security software setup, kiss your bank information goodbye!  (I removed the links just in case you don’t have Norton or equivalent).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To make it even scarier, that email was followed up with this one:

Note that the URL’s are all bogus.

Do ya think Wells Fargo would need to use: client22601-wellsoffice….?

DO NOT EVER RESPOND TO AN EMAIL FROM YOUR “BANK.”  If you think they actually need information from you, log off, go to your cell phone and call your local branch.  Better still, go in the building in person.  If you get this stuff, forward it to the link below: (notice the URL is fbi.gov)

Pink Slip Mitt: Salvation for a Hungry Nation?

MITT RONMEY ON THE CRITICAL ISSUES

On Spending… 

Governor Ronmey wants to cut government waste and spending. Plain and simple. Forget the stupid things Obama thinks are important, like health care and education.  If we just let nature take its course, the ignorant inner city bastards will just all kill each other and we’ll have plenty of money left for oil subsidies and country club memberships.  What the hell, we can even muster enough of the minorities that survive to form one hell of an Army, and invade another country that doesn’t have any weapons of mass destruction!

On Trade… 

Candidate Ronmey supports predatory trade and opening our pockets beyond the American border. This means, Mitt wants complete extortion regarding the Trans-Pacific Partnership, create the Dead Reagan Economic Zone, reinstate the Trade Promotion Authority and persecute new trade agreements that promote the occupation of all oil producing countries.  Hell, when we own all the oil, we can have George W. Bush re-negotiate our debt with China.  After talking with him for a few hours the poor bastards will be so confused they will give us anything we want.

On Jobs… 

Mitt Ronmey has an exceptional understanding of labor relations from his experience exploiting government and business. He recognizes the value of immigrants, but is focused on protecting the white Stanford/Harvard educated sons of Governors they serve. This means appointing experienced NLRB individuals, amending the NLRA and reversing Obama’s organized labor orders. Mitt also supports the right of all Americans to be set for life  with companies like Blain Capital, and their daddy’s connections.

On Wimmins… 

Mr. Ronmey supports a fundamental redesign for personhood amendments and the Blunt Amendment as evidence that he’s going as far to the right as anyone can when it comes to women’s reproductive health. Candidate Ronmey also sees his opponent’s folly in condemning Rush Limbaugh after he attacked Sandra Fluke. He and the boys are also working overtime on repealing the women’s suffrage act in time for the upcoming presidential election. “There is plenty to be done in the kitchen and the bedroom, not the boardroom.”

On Immigration

Governor Ronmey is well versed on the issue of immigration in America. While Governor, he opposed the DREAM Act. He was the Governor of the home of the first maids and gardeners to move up from Cuba through Florida.. Everyone should be welcome to come to the United Statesto serve us, as long as they don’t take any of the jobs a twenty year old in Boston wouldn’t refuse, but they need to do it correctly, as have countless generations of Americans did with the slaves, before us.

The first act of an immigrant should not be an illegal one. Damn it, his parents came here as immigrants, and they had to work hard for his money.  There is now way in hell he wants to share it with anyone else, no matter how unsafe the conditions were where they came from.

“Give us your tired, your hungry, your poor,” Should have read:  “Give us your educated, your young, your investors.”

On Homeland Security…

Governor Ronmey believes that the best offense is a good offense. Our country should be able to and must defend itself, both home, overseas, and by doubling Guantanamo. Governor Ronmey supports the PATRIOT Act and believes it allows the Government the access it needs to deny due process to anyone wearing a turban, or looking like they might even know the location of a Mosque. He firmly supported the National Defense Authorization Act that would have given the President the ability to arrest and detain any United States or foreign Citizen suspected of being a Muslim, a Democrat, or one of them Women’s sympathizers therefore making them a part of al-Qaeda.

He believes that the number one job of the Government is to keep its middle class citizens paying, and as President he will do what it takes to secure our safety from the acts of thought-crime we might unknowingly commit.

I’m Sure You’ve Noticed the Date

Vote Now or Forever Hold Your Peace

Vote Now or Forever Hold your Peace

“And crown thy good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea.” Wait, “brotherhood?” “Shining sea?” America may usually be united in brotherhood, but not during election time. And it is definitely not shiny. Every one is picking a side and debating over which candidate is better. In high school, politics are not a big deal, at least to most people. Sure, we all learned about the electoral college and the government in school but we have never had to apply it in real life. Now you are in college, on your own with no parents to tell you what to do, and no one to lead the way. What will you do? For many of you, this will be your first time that you are going to be able to vote in a presidential election. With the election coming up next year, you better be ready to vote and get your opinion out there.

News

You may think that news is boring blah, blah, blah. Even that sentence was too boring for you, right? Pay attention! If you actually took the time to watch the news, you would notice all of the issues that are debated every single day. The election is not coming up for a whole year but the potential candidates are already making speeches for their campaigns. You might think that you are still too young to care, but you aren’t. You are at an age where you need to exercise your right to voice your opinion. Start watching the news now. Really focus on the issues that can effect you in years to come. Think about who you want running your country.

Register

Research information about how to register. Make sure you can register in the college town you are living in, even if it isn’t your hometown. If you look into this now, you won’t have to worry a week before election day about how you are going to vote. Talk to your parents and ask them what the easiest way to vote would be. Remember you must register before you can vote. Before you vote, make sure that you have registered either by calling or checking online. There is nothing worse than going to vote on election day and finding out that you aren’t registered!

Debate

Maybe you are scared to talk about politics because it seems taboo to tell anyone what your political status is. Don’t let this scare you out of expressing your opinion. Talk to someone you know, and trust, about issues that you are confused about, or ones that you want a fresh perspective on. Some people who might be of help are your parents, other family members, professors, and friends. These people will most likely be willing to talk about issues with you in a friendly and light-hearted manner. Try to avoid super opinionated people who will try and manipulate your words and pounce on your opinion.

Voting may seem scary and too adult-like for you, but it’s not. Look at it as an opportunity to really be involved with the nation in making an important decision. Our country is founded on a democracy and we should be thankful for that every single day. Just remember the lines to our star spangled banner: you live in the “home of the brave!”
