I'm obsessed with FukushimaNPP accident.

I can't keep my eyes off it:see here:

I've just read a very deep statement about it and I would like to share it with you.
Thank you [Mauibrad.
Just as they increasingly lose control of the situation, trained manpower becomes a problem. In the manner that they have been dealing with Fukushima, TEPCO and the Japanese Govt. will increasingly lose the manpower educated to deal with the situation. "Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive."]
{read the post from which this comment comes from}

The quote in this comment by mauibrad:"Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive." is, surprisingly, not from Shakespeare but from Sir Walter Scott , in Canto VI, Stanza 17 of "Marmion" (1808) an epic poem about the Battle of Flodden Field in 1513.

The meaning is, basically, that lies beget more lies, and that masking lies with more lies creates an ever-more-complex arrangement of falsehoods.

We've got to do something about Fukushima NPP accident in Arago.
Who cares to post a comment that says something like YES! I WANT TO TAKE PART IN THE FUKUSHIMA ARAGO thingy?-I ! if you're from "le lycée Arago" in the comments. FGS below.???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
I'm expecting you to do so, and more!
And think about the issue. Think hard. And let us act!

Have you heard of Ron Paul? from France?

November 12th, 2011
On CBS tv network, a Republican presidential primary TV debate took place from Wofford College in South Carolina between Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, Rick Perry and Rick Santorum.
Have you already heard of those politicians? One of them will be chosen in the Republican primaries to represent the GOP in the 2012 U.S. presidential elections. And might become the next U.S. Prez...
(reminder: GOP stands for Grand Old Party i.e. the Republican party.
Bush, father and son were Republican presidents whereas Clinton husband and wife and Obama are democrats.)

Only 89 seconds of the Ron Paul answers were broadcast on TV. Yet, he receives most of the applause and cheering in the introduction.

The other parts are available online. And here is cbsnews comment after the debate.

Occupy no more in NYC
On Tuesday morning a judge issued a temporary restraining order preventing the owners of Zuccotti Park from enforcing rules about occupying its public space, or from preventing protesters from re-entering the park with tents.
