Scientists were shocked to learn recently that levels of ionizing radiation in sea life living off the eastern coast of Japan are still exceptionally high following the devastating earthquake and tsunami that struck the region back in March 2011. And according to a new paper published in the journal Science, which draws on a myriad of data collected by the Japanese Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF), the [...]

“Keep that door shut! I’m not heating the outside!”
I can’t tell you how many times my two brothers and I heard those words from our mother as we were growing up during cold Ontario winters. We needed constant reminding… because kids don’t really get it until they become adults and start paying the bills that go along with home ownership.
Electricity is one of the major expenses of owning [...]

The idea that disease and infection might be used as weapons is truly dreadful, but there is plenty of evidence showing that biological weapons have been around since ancient times.
Bioterrorism is nothing new, and although medicines have made the world a safer place against a myriad of old scourges both natural and manmade, it still remains all too easy today to uncork a nasty cloud of [...]
Solving problems means first understanding them.

As difficult as it might be for some to believe, Syria’s problem is not violence, armed insurrection, or political upheaval. Neither is it economic or social. These are but symptoms, many purposefully induced from abroad, of Syria’s real problem, and therefore any solution aimed at treating only these symptoms will provide only but the most superficial and temporary relief.
Many geopolitical analysts know [...]

We have obtained hundreds of documents from the 1966 meeting. This is a Wikileaks-sized data dump and we will be writing several more articles over the next few days to cover the myriad of different issues at hand.
LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Surveillance aircraft used by the U.S. military overseas could soon be coming to the skies above Los Angeles County.
KNX 1070?s Charles Feldman reports the Federal Aviation Administration is making it easier for local law enforcement agencies to fly unmanned drones.
The FAA has streamlined the process that would allow agencies to fly smaller, unarmed versions of the drones that hunt down terrorists in places such as Pakistan and Afghanistan.
At a press conference with the prime minister of Japan this afternoon, President Obama said that Americans haven’t excessively celebrated the death of Osama bin Laden, and suggested that Mitt Romney would not have made the decision to kill the terrorist mastermind.
“I’d just recommend that everybody take a look at people’s previous statements in terms of whether they thought it was appropriate to go into Pakistan and to take out [...]

In the modern political arena, we are provided a myriad of false choices, while our supposedly elected representatives skillfully and purposefully obfuscate and maneuver around real, permanent solutions. This is because the vast majority of the power and influence today’s ruling elite enjoy across the Western world is derived precisely because of perpetual, seemingly unsolvable problems. In many cases, these “problems” are manufactured by the very people [...]
Selling your car used to be a no-brainer. Park the old junker at the end of the driveway facing out, stick a “For Sale” sign on the dashboard, and wait for the right buyer to happen by. If you were really ambitious, you could paint the price on the windshield in white shoe polish, along with the ever-tempting “OBO.”
Things have changed. Buyers and sellers have access to a myriad [...]
Grab your change purses, boys and girls, because a forced transition to the $1 coin may be upon us.
At present, Congress is considering legislation that would see the $1 bill replaced — wiped out permanently — by a coin. A heavy, clunky, painfully old-fashioned coin that, if adopted, will soon be overburdening the pockets and purses of annoyed Americans everywhere. What’s more, it will cost them dearly.
The legislation was [...]
I think more folks can afford guns than gold. I don’t know if that’s a good thing. What I do know is that using a firearm is a perishable skill. Furthermore, shooting at anything in a static mode (both, you and the target are motionless throughout the course of the round) does not truly help you when it comes to a defensive situation. Don’t get me wrong, “static” repetition with [...]

Budget Deficits, Rating Agencies And IBGYBG
Never have so many, said so much, that’s so wrong. It seems like a combination of deficits and rating agency action have sparked a myriad of comments, many of which are just plain wrong.
First, on the deficit. NEITHER party is reducing the existing cumulative deficit nor amount of debt outstanding. They are NOT creating [...]

I have a little theory that I’ve been kicking around for a couple of years. The theory is that there will come a time that you will not be able to buy silver at any price. It will not be because there is not any silver around to be purchased or that silver will not have any value. I think that we won’t [...]
I’m so frustrated and angry this morning, I had to blast “Uprising” a few times to get my head screwed on straight. You might to do the same before you read on:
OK. Those of us that follow, store, collect and/or trade precious metals are all very much aware of the presence of The Evil Empire. At the behest of their evil Sith masters at The Federal Reserve, the EE actively, [...]

It is quite possible the dollar bubble has run its course. It has been propped up for 40 years (often the lifespan of a fiat currency from what I have read). Now, the world appears to be moving away from it, our government is devaluing it, and we can’t service our debt if interest rates return to normal.
Gold may not go up in value but, to the dollar, [...]
