NRC to consider allowing blended waste in Utah

NRC to consider allowing blended waste in Utah 10 Jun 2010 The Nuclear Regulatory Commission is proposing a rule change that would allow hotter radioactive waste to be mixed with less hazardous waste so it could be disposed of in Utah.

BP and government authorities collude to suppress reality of oil spill

BP and government authorities collude to suppress reality of oil spill By David Walsh 11 Jun 2010 Numerous media accounts confirm that oil giant BP, in collusion with the Obama administration and various federal agencies, is attempting to block information about the extent of the damage wreaked on the Gulf Coast and other areas. The New York Times reported Wednesday ("Efforts to Limit the Flow of Spill News") that "Journalists struggling to document the impact of the oil rig explosion have repeatedly found themselves turned away from public areas affected by the spill, and not only by BP and its contractors, but by local law enforcement, the Coast Guard and government officials." ...Essentially, BP and the authorities are trying to suppress information about the oil spill just as the US military, with the complicity of the American media, has done in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Investigation Is Sought Into Primary in S. Carolina

Investigation Is Sought Into Primary in S. Carolina 11 Jun 2010 Calls are mounting for an investigation into Alvin Greene, the candidate who surprised pretty much everyone by winning the South Carolina Democratic primary for the United States Senate on Tuesday. State Democratic officials have urged Mr. Greene to quit the contest against Senator Jim DeMint, a Republican, and top lawmakers, including Representative James E. Clyburn, began suggesting on Thursday that Mr. Greene was a "plant." Mr. Clyburn, the House Democratic majority whip, called for a federal investigation because of reports that Mr. Greene, who told television reporters and others that he is unemployed, somehow paid the more than $10,000 filing fee to run for the Senate. [See: Keith Olbermann's interview Thursday with Alvin Greene 'Meet Alvin Greene' on MSNBC's 'Countdown.']

Benzene pollution - a health risk in Gulf BP Oil drilling disaster

Benzene pollution - a health risk in Gulf BP Oil drilling disaster --BP = "Benzene Pollutants" By A. True Ott, Ph.D. 31 May 1010 What is unfolding in the Gulf of Mexico is truly a nightmare of epic proportions. Untold millions (if not billions) of gallons of raw crude oil, mixed with natural gas has been spewing (not spilling) into the pristine waters of the Gulf of Mexico for over a month... Raw crude oil is naturally loaded with a petrochemical called benzene. Unfortunately, several regulatory agencies (e.g., the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency [EPA], and the International Agency for Research on Cancer) classify benzene as a confirmed human carcinogen (CHC). In other words, benzene causes cancer and other chronic disease states.

Plight For Pelicans: Oil Puts Nesting Season At Risk

Plight For Pelicans: Oil Puts Nesting Season At Risk 09 Jun 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil is menacing one of the best wildlife recovery stories: brown pelicans.

Cyber-security legislation seeks emergency powers --Proposal puts cyber agency in Homeland Security Department  --Competing proposal puts power in White House 10 Jun 2010 A new Congressional cyber security proposal would give the president emergency powers to protect critical private networks 'under attack,' but the bill's sponsors insisted it does not allow the government to take control of any private cyber-network.

Gulf oil spill 'may top 100,000 barrels a day'

Gulf oil spill 'may top 100,000 barrels a day' 09 Jun 2010 BP’s oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico may be up to four times the scale estimated by a government scientific panel, pumping out 100,000 barrels a day in what equates to the company’s "worst case scenario" and prompting new accusations that executives are stonewalling the truth. The news -- revealed by one of the members of President Obama’s Flow Rate Technical Group, a panel that previously estimated that the flow was in the region of 12,000 to 25,000 barrels a day -- counter to BP’s claims that it is now capturing "the majority" of the oil and channeling it into a tanker.
