Chapter One Presentation

Below is a presentation on chapter one of "Living in the Age of the Ram and the Goat" that I gave on Saturday January 15th, 2011 at Wall Highway Baptist Church in Madison, AL.
 
What's in the Book?
If we are living in the age of the Old Testament prophet Daniel's vision of the ram and the goat then you would expect to see the following scenario:

1.) You would expect that the Kurds would rise to political power in Iran.
- This began when the citizens of Iran revolted against the re-election of
Ahmadinejad in June 2009. The Kurds are strong supporters of the
democratic movement in Iran.

2.) You would expect that the United States would pull out of the Persian Gulf Area.
-The U.S. has agreed to pull its troops out of Iraq by 2012. Political experts
speculate that the U.S. will pull out of Afghanistan before the end of the Obama
presidency (also 2012).

3.) You would expect to see the next Secretary General of the United Nations to come
from Greece.
-The present Secretary General, Ban Ki Moon, has not been perceived to be a
strong leader. Several articles have been written that speculate that he will not
be re-appointed in 2012.
-President George W. Bush tried to push for selection of the Secretary General
from among the Eastern European nations (mostly countries that were formerly
part of the U.S.S.R) during the last selection process in 2007. I believe Barack
Obama will propose that the next Secretary General come from Europe. This will
provide the opportunity for the next Secretary General to come from Greece.

4.) Once the U.S. has withdrawn from the Persian Gulf Iran will invade Iraq which will
provide little resistance. Iran will then invade Turkey and Saudi Arabia.
-This will give Iran control over 2/3rds of the world's oil supply and much of the
world's natural gas supply.
-Iran will use its control of the distribution of petroleum and natural gas through
Turkey's extensive network of pipelines to Europe to blackmail Europe. This will
keep the United States from responding militarily for a while.
-Iran will strip the wealth of Turkey, Iraq and Saudi Arabia to support its own
economy.

5.) The world will finally lose its patience with Iran.
-The United States (with the support of the United Nations) will conduct an air and
naval war with Iran until the U.S. can control Iraq. The U.S. will then use Iraq to
launch its ground forces against Iran. Iran will be crushed.

6.) The world will dismantle Iran so that they can not do this again.
-The resources of Iran (petroleum and natural gas) will be controlled by the
United Nations and the citizens of Iran will be dispersed to every nation of the
world.

7.) An unknown event will cause the traumatic downfall of the United States (militarily
and economically).
-Since the U. S. is the "glue" that holds the U.N. together its downfall will cause
the U.N. to breakup into four organizations lead by the following powers: Russia,
China, the African Union and the European Union.
-While all this is going on Egypt and the African Union rise as a world power.
-Egypt becomes an ally of Israel.

8.) Russia and Egypt will then battle over control of the Middle East.
-Russia and Egypt will invade each others territories on numerous occasions.
-These military campaigns will go back and forth through Israel.
-These confrontations will eventually lead to the gateway event to the
tribulational period. Russia will invade Israel as seen by the Old Testament
prophet Ezekiel.

What is Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy? (mHBOT)

Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (mHBOT) is a form of therapy that safely increases the body’s oxygen uptake by raising the barometric pressure. Mild hyperbaric chambers are simple enclosures which can be pressurized to allow the person inside to experience greater than normal (1 ATA) atmospheric pressures of 1.3 ATA (similar to swimming in 11 feet of water). The pressure, combined with ambient air purified to 89-93% oxygen and delivered through a simple oxygen mask, forces the oxygen to dissolve into the body’s fluids and travel to areas of the body otherwise difficult to reach. The dissolved oxygen saturates the plasma, the lymph, the synovial (joint) fluid and the cerebrospinal fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord. Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (mHBOT) is a safe, drug-free therapy that can be used regularly without any danger of oxygen toxicity in the body.

  • Mild Hyperbaric Therapy (HBT) is a safe method of delivering more oxygen to the body at the cellular level.
  • HBT provides the optimal environment for the body to carry out vital cell processes, thereby increasing the capacity for the body to heal itself.
  • HBT utilizes filtered pressurized ambient air to dissolve oxygen directly into the plasma, cerebral and spinal fluids, flooding tissues and vital organs with oxygen.
  • Mild Hyperbaric Therapy allows for healing at the cellular level, which is critical for changes to be made which in turn affect healthy tissue formation, making it possible for healthier organs and ultimately a healthier body overall.



 

  • YES! nThe hyperbaric chamber uses filtered ambient air, so there is no risk of oxygen toxicity to the body even with regular use.
  • The chamber can be depressurized and opened from the inside.
  • Once inside the chamber, both visual and verbal communication is possible with the outside, and there is also a buzzer for help.
  • Most people report a comfortable, relaxing experience and emerge from the chamber feeling refreshed.
  • This therapy is non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical, and there are no dangerous side effectsThis treatment is non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical, and there are no dangerous side effects reported.



 

  • The mild hyperbaric chamber is filled with compressed ambient air from 2 to 4.5 pounds per square inch. (1.3 ATA max) This is the equivalent of 11 feet below sea level.
  • The increased pressure allows the blood plasma and other liquids of the body to absorb additional oxygen thus greatly increasing oxygen uptake by the cells, tissues, glands, organs, brain, and fluids of the body.
  • The resulting uptake of oxygen allows for increased circulation to areas with swelling or inflammation. At the same time, the increased pressure decreases swelling and inflammation.
  • Oxygen is then utilized by the body for vital cell functions, healthier cells equals healthier tissues, and organs.
  • The human body is capable of healing itself when it has what it needs. There is NOTHING the human body needs more than OXYGEN.


 

HOW HYPERBARIC THERAPY WORKS

 

Physicists figured out years ago that a gas under pressure is more likely to dissolve into liquid—in mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy, the gas is oxygen and the liquid is blood. But under pressure, oxygen doesn’t only hook up to red blood cells (the "traditional" way oxygen is delivered to tissues), it also dis-solves into the plasma. When that plasma circulates near dor-mant or injured tissue such as an encephalopathic brain, a bruised muscle, a sprained tendon, or a surgical wound, the oxygen in the plasma can and does dissolve further into the damaged area than the oxygen that’s attached to the red blood cell in that "traditional" delivery system.

When hyperbaric therapy was first used, higher pressures of 2-4 ATA (absolute atmospheres) of pressure and 100% oxygen were used. The world of hyperbaric medicine is learning that lower pressures (1.3 ATA in the portable chambers approved by the FDA for use in the home, 1.3-1.5 ATA in larger hospital and clinic based chambers) and less oxygen (often 21 to 40% FiO2) seem to have excellent effect on multiple systems of our bodies. In particular, lower pressure appears to be more benefi-cial for the injured brain than higher pressure.

We can look to apparent healing of the brain by monitoring its perfusion and activity. We can also monitor behaviors, re-sponse to stimuli (sensory function) and motor skills. Monitor-ing of cerebral brain flow can be done with a Brain SPECT (Single Photo Emission Computed Tomography) scan. SPECT scans before and after 40 sessions of mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy (MHBOT) have shown dramatic improvements in cere-bral brain flow that is sustained over time. In addition, three recent small studies conducted independently at three different centers showed significant improvement in behavior ratings scales with mild hyperbaric therapy. This would seem to corre-late with the improved cerebral brain flow that has already been documented. These results will need larger studies and ongoing research but initial findings are very promising.

In addition to impacting cerebral brain flow in injured brains, lower pressure hyperbaric therapy has been shown to positively impact natural killer cell function and thus, immune function. It has also been found to be of benefit in inflammatory conditions and has facilitated improvement in gut disease such as Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis. MHBOT has been shown to increase glutathione levels by 15% for at least 24 hours after therapy in previous studies. These areas are all of interest for parents of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) as they are often impaired in their children.

One question that has not yet been answered is the endpoint for mild hyperbaric therapy. Families continue to report signifi-cant improvement with many more than 40 sessions. The abil-ity, with a chamber approved for use at home by the FDA, to safely continue daily therapy at home is potentially of tremen-dous value to families involved in multiple hours of therapy and time out of the home on a daily basis. To be able to use a valu-able tool before school or after dinner facilitates family life for those able to purchase a chamber for their children.

Greece could default within hours ~ link~ Greece needs to default, to tell the Global Banking Cartel to go directly to Hell, to tell the IMF/Eurozone/etc. to go directly to Hell, and to begin arresting and trying Goldman Sachs bankers, other bankers, and a large percentage of its MPs for the serious crimes that they have committed. Stirling

If bondholders reject the debt deal entirely, there will be a big problem. So this is it. After three years of high drama, the European Union is staring at its first ever sovereign default and, ironically, unlike every other deadline so far, this one looks set to be adhered to.

At 8pm GMT tonight (7am, AEDT, Friday morning), the authorities will know - or have a very good idea - how many of Greece’s international creditors have accepted its 206 billion euro ($256 billion) bond-swap offer.

The results will probably take a few days to come out - Athens has to put its decisions through Brussels’ sluggish decision making processes - but this time it isn’t up to the politicians so the possible outcomes are clearer.



Spain's lost generation: Youth unemployment surges above 50% ~ link ~ There is NO EXCUSE for this. This is a result of deliberate policies to create a new global economic depression as part of a Grand Strategy to bring about the satanic New World Order global slave-state. Stirling

 

The number of 16-24 year old Spaniards out of work rose to 51.4 per cent in December, more than double the European Union average, according to a report by Spain'sNational Statistics Institute. The national unemployment rate hit 22.85 per cent, the highest rate in nearly 17 years and the current highest in the industrialised world.


Spain's young have been dubbed 'generacion cero' or 'the ni-nis' – neither in work nor full time education- and for many their only hope of seeking a better future is moving abroad, sparking fears of a brain drain.







NATO in Syria: Is Direct Military Intervention Next? ~ link~In recent days, this writer established contact with a Syrian monitoring events on the ground. His name's unmentioned for his safety. On March 4, he said a major Al Qaeda figure was arrested in Damascus. The same day, he emailed as follows:
"Sources familiar with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said a secret military order includes plans by senior Syrian military officials to confront a possible United States surprise attack." "The plan involves Syria's military responding immediately and decisively, including launching rocket and missile attacks against Israeli and US targets." "Syrian forces established a joint military operations Chamber, involving officers from the Syrian army, Iran, and Hezbollah, to coordinate military action if ordered. This means that any U.S. military attack against Syria Sijah will be met by the greatest possible missile force."
 
 
Clearly the stakes are drawn. Heated rhetoric's picking up. John McCain wants air attacks launched. Assad's preparing to respond defensively. Anything ahead may erupt suddenly and violently. When America plans regime change, everything's on the table to achieve it, including war. As things now stand, bet on it.
 
 


Smuggled Cash, Arms, Jihadists Fuel Syria War - RT video ~ link~ Remember there are two main doors to a war with Iran/Greater Middle East War/World War III. The front door is a direct assault upon Iran; the back door is an invasion/no-fly zone/bombing of Syria. I have real doubts that the globalists or Netanyahu have postponed their drive towards war. Stirling

Syrian government forces have regained control of the Baba Amr district in Homs - which has been the main centre of armed resistance for almost a month.
 
Washington says it'll keep up efforts to convince Russia and China to put pressure on President Assad and impose tougher sanctions against the Syrian regime.
 
James Corbett - editor of the Japan-based independent news website the Corbett Report, says it's not developments within Syria, but international politics, that will shape the country's future.
 
 
 
Syria: The Western Deception Over Regime Change Unravels - NATO Prepares For All Out War ~link~
The Western governments' and mainstream media’s narrative of a one-sided humanitarian crisis in Syria is rapidly unwinding to reveal a self-serving deception to justify a re-run of Libya-style NATO conquest. In reality, it is the Western powers and their Israeli and Arab henchmen who are fuelling a humanitarian crisis and creating the conditions for all-out war. All of which, it should be said, constitutes criminality comparable to Nazi Germany’s wars of aggression.
 
Since political turmoil erupted in Syria a year ago, the monotonous “big lie” narrative from Western governments and the corporate-controlled news media has been one of “brutal state repression against a civilian population” committed by the Assad government.
 
This portrayal has, predictably, led to strident condemnation of the Syrian government by Western leaders and calls for “humanitarian intervention” by NATO powers and Western-backed Gulf Arab states – in a tested formula prescribed for Libya.
 
 
 
Obama desperate for an excuse to attack Iran - with video ~ link~ Speaking during a news conference in the White House, US President Barack Obama said there is a "window of opportunity" to solve the tension around Iran's nuclear program peacefully.
 
However, some, like global affairs researcher Benjamin Schett, are skeptical about this. He believes the U.S. could be waiting for an excuse to attack. "It seems to be some kind of theater that the Israeli or American officials are playing," Schett told RT.
 
 
 
Fall of Syrian Government, Prelude to an Attack on Iran ~ link~ This supports the argument made by several independent news outlets that “the road to Tehran goes through Damascus.” According to numerous reports, the foreign-backed armed insurrection in Syria is a covert operation to topple the Syrian government, the only Iranian ally in the region. The insurrection is still upheld by the Western media as a peaceful protest movement, even though U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has admitted that Al Qaeda has integrated the ranks of the opposition.
The Aviation Week article states that the fall of Bashar al-Assad would weaken Iran and facilitate an attack from the U.S. and Israel.
The report further states that an Israeli attack on Iran would be conducted “through Syrian, Turkish, Jordanian or Saudi airspace.”
 
 
Proof Syria is about regime change orchestrated by Western governments ~ link~ The full expose can be viewed on youtube. The seven minute clip shows Abdul-Dayem joking with his cameraman and testing out fake gunfire and mortar sounds while waiting for CNN to put him on the air.
 
Everybody understands that main stream news today is mostly sensationalism but this is out and out fraud. Hacked emails show that regime change in Syria is being controlled by western powers and proof exists that main stream media is outright lying about the current conditions.
 
 
 
Top US danger rating for Syrian chemical-biological missiles ahead of even Iran ~ link~ It costs about a dollar to kill each person with an Advanced Biowar weapon...whereas it costs about a million dollars to kill each person with an nuclear weapon. The Syrians and Iranians have massive stockpiles of both chemical and biological weapons, which are in-effect doomsday weapons. These are solid reasons for a Casus Pax instead of a Casus Belli...in other words, they are a good reason not to go to war! Stirling
 
 
US military officials said on Wednesday, March 7, that contrary to the prevailing impression, President Barack Obama and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu discussed not only their dispute over an attack on Iran at their White House meeting on March 5, but devoted considerable attention to the Syrian crisis, focusing on the hundreds of surface-to-surface missiles armed with chemical and biological warheads possessed by Syria. The peril of the Assad regime launching them now tops America’s chart of the threats looming over Israel and Turkey, those sources told debkafile.
 
The US president accordingly prevailed upon his Israeli guest to hurry up and patch up relations with Turkey, which he was willing to assist, because it would take a combined US-Turkish-Israeli military effort to ward off an attack by Syria’s poisoned missiles. Indeed, if the Syrian conflict is not solved, America might be forced to turn its missile shield against Bashar Assad’s missiles before they are needed against an Iranian attack.
 
Those briefings were the first assessments of Syrian chemical and biological weapons capabilities to be given publicly by the heads of America's armed forces. This was the direct result, US sources say, of the candid and open conversation on the subject between President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu Tuesday.

 
 
 
Netanyahu at AIPAC sounds like WWIII ~ link~ This is a great article by Dr. Ott. Take the time to read it at the link. Stirling
 
 
 
Iran military base: Sinister cover-up or just a harmless clean-up ~ link~ The satellite photos do NOT prove that anything 'sinister' is taking place...they simply establish that there are earth moving equipment there...they may just be paving a parking lot! What this is, is a continuing of the false narrative that Iran is about to build or is building nuclear weapons. Already at least one US Senator has said that this may "cause" Israel to strike Iran. The BS is really deep on this one! Stirling
 
Satellite images of an Iranian military facility allegedly show attempts to clean the site of radioactive traces, diplomats have told AP. This adds to the stir over Iran’s nuclear activities, while Tehran insists on their peaceful nature.
Two of the diplomats told the news agency that the images show trucks and earth-moving vehicles. They claim the images indicate that crews were trying to clean up traces that could have come from the testing of a small neutron trigger used to set off a nuclear explosion.
 
A third diplomat could not confirm this, but stated that any testing of a so-called neutron initiator at the site could only be in the context of trying to develop nuclear arms, AP reports. The diplomats were speaking on Wednesday on condition of anonymity.
 
 
 
Pentagon 'very worried' about an Iran War says top US official ~link~ I use to know this person, back when he was an Indiana Congressman. Stirling
 
 
A top US official has revealed that the Pentagon is “very worried” about the prospects of a military confrontation with Iran, despite the escalating war threats emanating from Washington and Tel Aviv.

“[The] military is very worried about what they’re confronting with budget cuts and are just not anxious to take on another war,” Lee Hamilton, a member of the US Homeland Security Advisory Council, said in an interview with Politico on Tuesday.

“They see the difficulty of this situation from a military standpoint, not only the attack itself but sustaining the attack over a period of days, if not weeks. … A very powerful factor here is what the Pentagon now calls persistent conflict or endless war. We have, in effect, been at war for 10 years, at least since 9/11,” the former US congressman added.
 
 
 
P5+1 announces readiness for talks with Iran ~link~ This is NOT what the globalists want or what Netanyahu wants...they want WAR. So don't be surprised if nothing comes of this or if NATO uses a back door to war, an attack on Syria, to derail peace. Stirling
 
The five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany have expressed their readiness to resume multifaceted talks with Iran.

"We call on Iran to enter, without preconditions, into a sustained process of serious dialogue, which will produce concrete results," said a Thursday statement on behalf of the United States, China, Russia, France, Britain and Germany, known as the P5+1.

The group also expressed hope that the upcoming talks would contain “serious discussions on concrete confidence building measures."

Iran’s Parliament (Majlis) Speaker Ali Larijani warned on Wednesday that future negotiations between Tehran and the P5+1 would be fruitless if the West continued to pressure the Islamic Republic.
 
 
 
Jerusalem graffiti targets Arabs and Christians ~ link~ Vandals scrawled anti-Arab and anti-Christian slogans in Hebrew on a monastery compound and a school in Jerusalemovernight, Israeli policesaid on Tuesday.
Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said unknown people sprayed graffiti reading "death to Christians" and "price tag" on the walls of the compound of the Greek Orthodox Monastery of the Cross in west Jerusalem overnight.
"Price tag" is the name generally given to attacks carried out against Arabs and Palestinians and their property in response to Israeli government action against settlements in the West Bank.
 
 
 
Two Choices for Obama: War or More War ~ link~ The United States is committing itself to a war on behalf of another nation and it is as if nothing is happening. Commentary on President Obama’s speech at AIPAC and his meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been limited, apparently in the belief that if no one talks about it the war can begin on schedule. There has been plenty of coverage on Iran, however, all of it playing up the threat that the country allegedly poses. Some “thoughtful” commentary has been paying attention to Obama’s drawing a red line that is different from that of Israel, i.e. that military intervention should be dependent on preventing Iran’s actual acquisition of a nuclear weapon rather than its only having the capability to eventually develop one. Israel and its US lobby are seeking to make Iran’s technical ability to enrich uranium a casus belli rather than any proof of actual belligerent intent. That capability or “breakthrough” line has already been crossed which would suggest that the US should be at war with Iran already, precisely what Senators Graham, Lieberman, and McCain as well as their AIPAC sponsors would like to see. Obama is instead trying to delay the reckoning, until after elections in November if he can possibly manage it.
Obama knows perfectly well that Congress and the media as well as his own financial backers from Chicago — the Pritzker and Crown families — would force the White House to join in any war on Israel’s behalf. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu knows that too. Netanyahu can therefore have his war whenever he wants or he might opt to have his lackeys in the media and Congress crank up the pressure on Obama to produce regime change in the White House to bring in a pro-Israel nut case like Gingrich or Santorum, a guarantee that the United States will be at war with much of the rest of the world for the foreseeable future.

There areincreasing reports in South Koreaof imported Japanese fishery products which have been detected to contain radioactive cesium and other isotopes. Over 30 reports have been filed in 2012, already more than the 21 total cases filed in 2011. ”The frequency of radiation detection appears to be rising as two reactors at the Fukushima plant are currently leaking radiation,” said an agency official, asking not to be identified.

The highest level of radiation detected in Japanese products this year is 6.24 becquerel (Bq), the highest levels recorded last year peaked at 97.90 Bq, according to the agency. Fear about radiation from the ongoing nuclear crisis in Japan has taken a heavy toll on sales of seafood in South Korea. South Korea imported 40,466 tons of fishery products from Japanlast year, down 47 percent from a year earlier, reflecting public anxiety over radioactive contamination.

South Korean authorities are running radiation checks on seawater and marine products. Eight countries including China and South Korea are still blocking the import of several vegetables produced in parts of northern and eastern Japan.

Fukushimaplant still needing great care a year after tsunami

TOKYO(Kyodo) -- A year after the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant was ravaged by a huge earthquake and tsunami, Japan continues to face the challenge of keeping the complex under control without much knowledge of what is actually happening inside the three crippled reactors.
The country is also gearing up to clean the vast radiation----contaminated areas outside the plant, located about 220 kilometers northeast of Tokyo, but securing places to store the topsoil after removal is not easy given the opposition of local residents.
The nuclear crisis at the plant in FukushimaPrefecture occurred shortly after the March 11 natural disasters led to the loss of nearly all of the plant's power sources, and consequently the ability to cool the reactors and spent fuel pools.
The Nos. 1 to 3 reactors have suffered core meltdowns and the buildings housing the Nos. 1, 3 and 4 reactors were ripped by explosions caused presumably by hydrogen released from the core.
Following a painstaking process to contain the world's worst nuclear crisis since the 1986 Chernobyl disaster, the government announced in December that the plant has achieved a stable state of cold shutdown.
But the fact that no one knows precisely what has happened inside the reactors and where the melted nuclear fuel is located means there is still great uncertainty over the situation at the complex.
Most recently, tensions grew over the status of the No. 2 reactor after readings on one of its thermometers showed a notable rise in February in a possible sign that there may be some trouble in cooling the fuel.
While plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. determined that the thermometer in question was broken, the incident highlighted the need for the utility to enhance the credibility of its system for monitoring the reactors.

"We should take this problem in the measuring equipment seriously," nuclear disaster minister Goshi Hosono told a press conference on Feb. 14. "Given that work toward scrapping the reactors is expected to last for 30 to 40 years, it is extremely unfavorable to see a situation in which the utility cannot obtain data."
According to a road map for decommissioning the reactors, the utility known as TEPCO will start removing the fuel stored in the spent fuel pools of the Nos. 1 to 4 units within two years and the fuel from the Nos. 1 to 3 reactors within 10 years.
Tadashi Narabayashi, a Hokkaido University professor, called on the utility to swiftly create "criteria and a monitoring system to judge whether a cold shutdown condition has been maintained," using the readings of properly functioning thermometers and the amount of radioactive substances released from the reactor buildings.
He also pointed to the need to develop robots within five years that can operate inside the reactors, where radiation levels could be high enough to destroy integrated circuits in a short time, so that they can carry out such work as installing new thermometers for the reactors.
In addition to the situation of melted fuel, due attention is needed in handling the massive amounts of contaminated water created as a result of constant water injection into the stricken reactors.
After being used to cool the reactors, the water goes through a processing facility so that radioactive substances are removed to a certain extent. Some of the water is then recycled as a coolant and the remaining portion is placed in tanks at the site.
But the storage capacity could eventually run short, raising the possibility that TEPCO may resort to dumping low----level radioactive water in the Pacific Ocean, a plan the utility said it was considering in December but gave up due to opposition from the fishing industry.
Outside the plant's premises, work to reduce the contamination level of land detected to have an annual exposure dose of 1 millisievert or more, excluding natural dosage, is set to accelerate in eight prefectures in the northeastern and eastern regions of Japan.
Talks are also under way between the central government and municipalities located near the stricken plant to build a facility in Fukushima Prefectureto store the removed soil for a certain period of time.

The government aims to select the location for the interim storage facility during fiscal 2012, but the eight municipalities concerned have not yet reached a consensus on the issue and it remains to be seen whether things will go as scheduled.
Reflecting the sensitivity of the matter, a gathering between the government and the municipalities planned for Feb. 26 was abruptly canceled, with the mayor of one of the two towns that host the Fukushimaplant expressing his "strong mistrust" of the state due to media reports that described in advance what the government planned to discuss at the meeting.
Swift establishment of the facility is necessary to move the decontamination process forward and help people in FukushimaPrefecture restore their shattered lives.
The following is the current status and other information on the six reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, crippled by the magnitude 9.0 earthquake and ensuing tsunami on March 11 last year, based on data issued by the government and plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co.

Dr. Bill
This just came out - March 6 from the NRC. They are going to START studying the effects of a Dam Failure on those plants downstream of such structures. It also says that this Study is a result of Fukushima Recommendations (Near Term Task Force) and is needed for increased Seismic Activity.

COMMENT: Site studies are performed prior to granting permission to construct a plant. These studies include the effects of Water Control Structures (dams, spillways, etc.). My reaction is that due to the new Seismic Study, the Dams that could affect Nucler Power Plants are not expected to survive a probable Earth Quake. Therefore, bandaids are needed to minimize the risk of the plants downstream of Dams. Fort Calhouncomes to my mind.
NRC EXAMINING POTENTIAL IMPACT ON NUCLEAR PLANT SAFETY
FROM UPSTREAM DAM FAILURE
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has started a formal evaluation of potential generic safety implications for dam failures upstream of U.S. commercial nuclear power plants. The NRC began examining this issue after inspection findings at two plants and recently completed an initial screening assessment.

While this screening did not identify any immediate safety concerns, inspections or other reviews at individual plants have led to those plants taking appropriate actions regarding flooding scenarios. Based on the screening, the NRC staff has recommended that flooding from upstream dam failure be further evaluated as part of implementing recommendations from the agency’s Japan Near-Term Task Force.

COMMENT: This is the result of a Petition to the NRC from an awake Member of the Public– See Attached “Upstream Dams Seismic Study”

- Recent Tornados Affect Sequoyah Nuclear Power Plant due to Loss of Grid
 

TennesseeValleyAuthority (TVA) Update on Severe Weather

http://www.tva.com/news/releases/janmar12/weather.html
Below are updates on the severe weather occuring throughout the TVA service area. The latest updates are at the top of this page.
March 4, 2012 5:00 p.m. EST
The TVA transmission system remains stable and secure following Friday’s storms.

One transmission line to Sequoyah Nuclear Plant was returned to service Saturday night. Nine lines are still under repair.

All distributors of TVA power are connected to the TVA grid with seven distributors indicating that the number of customers experiencing outages is now about 4,900 -- in North Alabama, Middle, East, and Southeast Tennessee and North Carolina.

All three nuclear sites remain safe. Sequoyah Unit 2 in Soddy Daisy, Tenn., is still operating at about 80 percent power and remains limited due to transmission lines being out of service in the area of the plant. Sequoyah Unit 1 has been shut down since Feb. 27 for a scheduled refueling outage. The three units at Browns Ferry Nuclear Plant near Athens, Ala., are operating at full power. Watts Bar Unit 1 in Spring City, Tenn., is operating at full power.

Updates will be provided as conditions change.
COMMENT: Sequoyah Unit 2 lowered power to 80% in anticipation that the remainder of its offsite power lines will be lost. This is a precautionary measure (or maybe a repeat of last April).

FukushimaFOIA showing how the NRC didn't want the National Labs to help calculate Total Dose from Fukushima way back in March 12, 2011

NRC worried about US National Labs “chomping at the bit” to help with Fukushima Radiation analysis – Call lab directors and say “Knock it off”

UNITED STATES OF AMERICANUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION
MR. SHARON: This is Brian Sharon. Quick question, well, not question, butI’ve gotten a couple of emails here today, from some of the National Labs, and they’re all — there are a couple of them chomping a the bit, you know, saying, “Ghee, can we help? Ghee, can we go calculate this,”with the codes and all that stuff.
I keep telling them, “No, you don’t know the scenario,” but you know, somebody might want to call DOE and tell them to tell their labs to cool it,because the last thing we want is the labs going off, talking to the press, talking about consequences and all sorts of other stuff, because you know, they’re chomping at the bit, to do something, and I’m not sure, Eliot, maybe you’ve got a point of contact up there at DOE?
MR. BRENNER: I’ll send a note to their Press Secretary, asking him, through his chain, to reach out, down to the labs and tell them to back off. If we’ve got other chains, we might as well –
MALE PARTICIPANT: If I could chime in on that? On the Deputy’s call yesterday, I was on with the Chairman, and Pete Lyons was one of the principals at DOE. Lyonsmay be a good source to contact at DOE.
MR. JOHNSON:This is Mike Johnson. My other thought was, it may be just to cut to the chase, just to pass the same, to call the lab directors and say, “Knock it off,” or whatever messages we want to get to them.
There are a number of ways we can do this.
So, I agree, Brian, we’ve got to do it soon.
MR. McDERMOTT: Okay, we’ll take that action from headquarters.
COMMENT: This is incredible silencing of the truth. The National Labs are filled with fully capable scientists and engineers who not only needed the billable work, but were also true experts on these types of calculations (Total Dose from Fukushima). The NRC felt that the fewer involved, the tighter they could control the media. Thank you for letting me speak my mind - this proves that we were correct in reporting this event. Many more FOIA responses - so little time.

One year after Fukushima– Reassessing nuclear safety and the ability to avoid disaster (Part Two)


Posted byLucas W Hixsonon March 7, 2012

http://enformable.com/2012/03/one-year-after-fukushima-reassessing-nuclear-safety-and-the-ability-to-avoid-disaster-part-two/

The Fukushima disaster is horrible and still unfolding, and caused a disastrous disruption to production and distribution networks not only in Japan, but around the world. Prime Minister Nato Kan while still in office after the disaster is quoted saying that the combined situation of the earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear plants has presented “in a manner of speaking, the worst crisis in the past 65 years since World War II.”
In this installment, readers are urged to ask difficult questions, understanding that not all of the answers will be provided immediately, but also keeping in mind that these questions cannot go unanswered. Some questions firmly rooted in the minds of readers are; Why did this accident occur? What went wrong? How likely was it? Could it have been prevented or mitigated? Experts warn that few permanent safety measures are in place at the plant, where the initial rush to contain the accident saw a series of improvised solutions. They say that in another natural disaster — a big earthquake or another large tsunami — the plant could prove very vulnerable.
Last December, Japan declared that the damaged Fukushima reactors had been brought to a state of stability equivalent to cold shutdown, with temperatures at the bottom of the reactor pressure vessels stably remaining below 100 degrees Celsius, but the exact causes of the Fukushima No. 1 plant meltdowns remain to be determined. The Japanese Government and TEPCO have battled over the last year in continuous verbal exchanges, continuous mutual guessing of each others’intentions, and perpetual hesitations to disclose unfavorable information or take decisive action.
The people of Japan have every right and reason to be suspicious of official pronouncements about the safety of the remaining nuclear power plants. The events at Fukushima Daiichi point to omissions in many risk assessments. There has been implicit and explicit collusion between the regulator and the regulated licensee, entrenching both in a perceived self-promoting “nuclear industrial complex,”. TEPCO has long been accused of having tolerated or encouraged the practice of covering up problems.
Even Prime Minister Kan had come to distrust TEPCO through his career prior to 2011, partly because TEPCO had been caught lying about the quality of Fukushima Dai-ichi Unit 1’s containment in 2002. These findings were only part of a slew of details that emerged which forced the TEPCO vice-president to resign in shame due to the uncovering of facts showing that the utility had knowingly been hiding evidence of cracks in up to up to 8 reactors containment vessels and other structural equipment due to aging. In total, over 29 cases of possible cover-ups were found by August of 2002, involving 13 nuclear reactors at 3 separate facilities.
While there are many lessons yet to be learned from this accident, one that stands out above the rest is the necessity in always accurately reviewing nuclear safety rules, and that each test should be put under intense scrutiny to ensure a more complete picture of what may occur when there are events which exceed the conditions considered for the designing or operation and what measures are to be taken to avoid disaster. The Fukushimadisaster demonstrated that accidents previously considered too improbable to protect against, can indeed occur. The failure in stabilizing the reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi plant a year after the disaster has reminded ordinary people around the world of the huge potential dangers of what they are repeatedly told is a safe, clean and cost-efficient source of producing electricity.
Japan’s attitude to the threat of external events was extremely selective. According to Japanese government and industry officials, many if not most of Japanese safety rules do not require probabilistic safety assessments to demonstrate that plants are protected against the threat of severe external events. Japan’s Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency is now exposed for upholding insufficiently conservative strategies for assessing safety margins comes from its approach to seismic safety. Following the 2006 publication of new earthquake safety guidelines and the 2007 earthquake that affected the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa station, the seismic design basis for all Japanese nuclear power plants was reevaluated and at some, it was increased. Under an industry process known as back checking, no work was required at plants—includingFukushima—that already met the revised guidelines.
Japanese utilities currently are a scheme of integrated regional monopolies, nuclear plants placed under a two-tier control by corporate managers and regulators. A TEPCO CEO has no experience in nuclear engineering, but is someone skilled in government relations, business procurements, etc. The primary concern of the top management of TEPCO has been to secure its position as a regional monopolist, and accumulate monopoly profits
Although it was not the first scandal, little was done in hindsight after 2002 to prevent the world’s largest and longest nuclear disaster in history. For 10 years NISA should have pushed or required TEPCO to significantly strengthen the design of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station. In February 2011, just one month prior to the Fukushimaaccident, NISA granted TEPCO a ten-year operating license extension for unit 1 after a technical review and some modifications that were carried out the year before. The license extension was permitted on the basis that TEPCO would monitor the condition of critical components during the term of the extended license.
TEPCO’s simulations to determine how far above sea level a tsunami would reach were inadequate. Moreover, whatever calculation TEPCO did perform seems questionable. The Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station was not designed to withstand a tsunami even half the size of the one that ultimately struck the Japanese coast in March 2011.

In the nuclear industry, global players and national entities tend to share information relevant to their complementary stakes and be engaged in continual negotiations over them. However this system is prone to fail in the event of a sudden, major shock. This has been carelessly allowed to continue after decades of nuclear disasters, each of which highlight the breakdown in communications after a severe accident. Even countries responding to the Fukushima crisis experienced and exhibited such behaviors,
Franceand the United States, although not directly impacted by the disaster, can be highlighted as an example. The United Statesissued a larger evacuation zone than the Japanese governments suggested area, and it remains unknown whether the two nations even discussed and compared their “worst case scenarios” prior to the US announcement, or whether there was a severe diplomatic breakdown between the allied countries.
AREVA, a French nuclear corporation which sold critical equipment to TEPCO to use in decontaminating the radioactive water piling up on-site, failed to provide translated equipment manuals to their Japanese counterparts, and after being approached by TEPCO asking for further information, the industry heavyweight declined to provide all additional materials, implying proprietary risk circumvented those risks stemming from the nuclear disaster.
This nuclear catastrophe has not only generated a global public debate regarding the social costs and benefits of nuclear power generation, but also poses serious engineering and social scientific research questions. Have there been any criticality accidents at Fukushima? If so, how much radiation was released and who was exposed? Can the melted fuel and control rods be extracted from the reactor vessels? It is impossible to even guess what kind of state the nuclear fuel is in after dropping through the bottom of the pressure vessel within the reactor.
Throughout April, engineers were constantly worried that the seemingly never-ending series of quakes were continually causing fresh leaks from the reactor buildings. In an apparent push to downplay the risk, the Japanese government and Tokyo Electric Power Company are predicting their cleanup efforts will be complete some thirty to forty years in the future.
To be honest, it is devastating that both the industry and Government have failed to make genuine progress with this disaster in the past year.

In closing, I will leave you with a few excerpts from a report from the Carnegie Endowment report on Fukushima;

The Fukushima accident was preventable.

Had the plant’s owner, Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), and Japan’s regulator, the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency (NISA), followed international best practices and standards, it is conceivable that they would have predicted the possibility of the plant being struck by a massive tsunami. The plant would have withstood the tsunami had its design previously been upgraded in accordance with state-of the-art safety approaches.
Though there is no single reason for TEPCO and NISA’s failure to follow international best practices and standards, a number of potential underlying causes can be identified. NISA lacked independence from both the government agencies responsible for promoting nuclear power and also from industry.
In the Japanese nuclear industry, there has been a focus on seismic safety to the exclusion of other possible risks. Bureaucratic and professional stovepiping made nuclear officials unwilling to take advice from experts outside of the field. Those nuclear professionals also may have failed to effectively utilize local knowledge. And, perhaps most importantly, many believed that a severe accident was simply impossible.
In the final analysis, the Fukushimaaccident does not reveal a previously unknown fatal flaw associated with nuclear power. Rather, it underscores the importance of periodically reevaluating plant safety in light of dynamic external threats and of evolving best practices, as well as the need for an effective regulator to oversee this process.
