Interesting Radiation New Site. Videos.

In a search to locate more information on nuclear contamination and radiation levels (Fuku and others) I came across a few sites. THIS one warrants attention, in my novice opinion. But first, watch this video from October, and listen to their explanations.

Radiation Levels Higher in the US

I follow thew Radiation Network’s update page daily. Over the last couple weeks, it has shown an increased level of radiation in the US. They set the “alert” level at 100. Since I rarely see much over 50, my own “watch” level is set at 50. The image below shows more than a few location in the upper levels. It’s a curiosity to me at the moment, but if it stays high, I’ll be looking into it further. Anyone have

Emergency Text Alert System

Under consideration is a text alert system to be activated in the event of major impacts to our lives. It looks to be a fairly useful system, though it needs more review. More news to follow….

Good Price on CCI Minimag .22 LR

I got a notice in my e-mail today. It’s regarding a Cheaper Than Dirt sale on CCI Minimag .22 LR, round nose ammo. $5.79 per box! This was hard to get just about a year ago. With shipping, the price goes up a bit, so unless you plan to buy 10 boxes or so, it might not be worth it to you. The shopping cart has a shipping calculator that is very helpful. I thought about it, but I can

Some of you are private pilots, or associated with contractors with wings. Be sure to share the warning.

Iranian Oil Purchased with GOLD??

Yes. It seems that India will skirt financial embargo efforts on the Iranian government by making its purchases in gold. The article says China may follow suit. This would be a major first. Not sure how it will affect gold markets, but I tend to believe that it will initially pump the markets up, as supply draws down. If Iran wanted to screw with the markets, they could then dump the gold in a very short time period and trash

Mossad “Handling” Iranian Ex-Pats in the Kurd Region?

This is what is called “plausible deniability.”

“The Israeli spy agency Mossad is using Iranian exiles living in the autonomous Iraqi region of Kurdistan to target Iranian nuclear experts and sabotage the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program, says an Iraqi security official quoted by the French daily Le Figaro.

“The Mossad agents have increased their infiltration in the Kurdish regions of Iraq,” the unnamed security official was quoted as saying.”

I think it is only wise for

US Military Moves Carriers, Denies Iran Link – Reuters

Two strike groups will be near The Straight…. the USS Abraham Lincoln and the USS Carl Vinson. “It is “not unusual to have two carriers in the CENTCOM theater at the same time,” a second U.S. military official said.

Another official said there had been two carriers in the Gulf region at least twice in the past 18 months.”

It may not be “unusual”, but the timing is, at the least, interesting.

 

West Readies Oil Plan in Case of Iran crisis

This is no small release plan. It is historic. It also wipes out any refueling of our military if needed after the release.

“They said senior executives of the International Energy Agency (IEA), which advises 28 oil consuming countries, discussed on Thursday an existing plan to release up to 14 million barrels per day (bpd) of government-owned oil stored in the United States, Europe, Japan and other importers.

Action on this scale would be more than
