Scientist : « We almost didn’t believe it to tell you the truth. Every single fish was significantly contaminated with two radioisotopes from Cesium. These are common waste products from nuclear accidents. » ( The fish the scientist is referring to is the Pacific bluefin tuna which is massive in size, up to ten feet and weighs more than a thousand pounds) Journalist 1 : « The levels are far lower than what is considered dangerous. » FDA(Food and Drug Administration) : « No public health concern has been detected. » Journalist 2 : « Scientists say the real test on how radiation affects migrating fish will come this summer. Researchers will look at fish that have spent more time in contaminated waters and could have even higher levels of pollution. » Scientist : « I think that is a distinct possibility and we honestly don’t know the answer. » Journalist 2 : « Today, Japanese officials annouced they’ll conduct more testing in their waters. This is researchers here do the same. »

"There is considerable disagreement among scientists over whether such catastrophes are possible. But some argue that whether the chances are small or large, changes should be made quickly because of the magnitude of the potential calamity." Fu.kushima is cause for concern and deserves some coverage. You don't say!

This film was released on April 12, 2012. Thrive means to prosper. Let's do that! That's 'the other story' my beloved sister sent me yesterday. Quite a story isn't it. So many diverse subjects, with examples and illustrations tied into one logical conclusion. It really makes sense. And the fact that it is being released on the web makes me smile and feel wonderfully optimistic. I'm sure you'll love it too. Oh I know, it's long. Two hours and twelve minutes. Make yourself episodes if you don't feel like watching it in a row. I couldn't stop watching. I'm glad to share it with you.

Here is their channel.http://www.youtube.com/user/MamaHope Watch the first video and tell me those guys don't rock. The whole world rocks actually. You know that don't you? Enjoy!! I've just discovered it thanks to Christiane Amanpour on CNN. She is a very famous journalist and interesting personality. She was harshly criticized at the time of the Bosnian war for ... telling the truth.Read the chapter 'Bosnian War reporting'here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christiane_Amanpour if you're interested. But...,as I was about to write: But... to go back to the subject, my word-curious mind found that: let's get back to the subject (at hand)/topic Or perhaps 'let's get back to the matter in hand' or 'point' (?) There is an old expression my aunt used to use - she was born in the North of England in 1906 or so. 'To return to our muttons' - she said it when she felt we had left the point - she used it just like that, with quasi-imperative force. Oh the web.Speaking of network thinking... It took me from my twitter account to this and to my sister but that's another story. Enjoy Mama Hope! (Yet don't forget Fu...kushima http://www.youtube.com/user/MamaHope

Only 223 views as I write this. And counting. You have to watch this. This video is Tepco Cam 2012.05.01 05:00-06:00 Japanese Time. When will MSM, mainstream media,cover the issue and do so transparently? WE CARE! By the way, some think TEPCO's videos are probably being edited.
