Japan to Pick New Nuclear Watchdog's Head from Private Sector


  • Japan to Pick New Nuclear Watchdog's Head from Private Sector

    Tokyo, Jan. 31 (Jiji Press)--The Japanese government plans to select the first head of a new nuclear regulatory agency not from among bureaucrats but from the private sector, the minister in charge of the nuclear crisis said Tuesday.

    While noting that the new agency's head "should be an expert in nuclear regulations and technologies," Goshi Hosono told a press conference, "a break with the past is needed now."

    right, a private sector expert in nuke technologies overseeing nuke plants is "a break with the past". Unless they intend to ask mr. Gundersen to help them out...

Proof that the cancer industry doesn't want a cure - even if it's a pharmaceutical


  • Proof that the cancer industry doesn't want a cure - even if it's a pharmaceutical

    (NaturalNews) A safe and effective cure for cancer has been discovered with a drug that was once used for unusual metabolic problems. Yet, the cancer industry shows no interest with following up on dichloroacetate (DCA) research from University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada, reported in 2007. That's because DCA is no longer patented. (1)

    That research also confirmed cancer as a metabolic malfunction, not a weird mutation of cells often explained away as a genetic issue. But the medical mafia doesn't want you to hear about it. But it confirms what most alternative cancer therapists already know.

    Since Nixon declared the "war on cancer" in the 1970s, the cancer industry has succeeded with raising money for researching very expensive chemo substances at $50,000 to $100,000 per round or more for toxic therapies that rarely work. (2)

UN nuclear agency approves Japan's stress tests


  • UN nuclear agency approves Japan's stress tests

    Jan 31 (Reuters) - U.N. nuclear experts on Tuesday gave their backing to stress tests aimed at showing Japan's nuclear plants can withstand the sort of disasters that devastated the Fukushima plant last year, potentially bolstering a government campaign to restart idled reactors and avoid a summer power crunch.

    webmasters comment:

    And if this tests were conducted before Fukushima happened, UN "experts" would approve Fukushima Daiichi as well.

NRC wants U.S. nuclear operators to adopt new seismic model


  • NRC wants U.S. nuclear operators to adopt new seismic model

    (Reuters) - The Nuclear Regulatory Commission said Tuesday the agency wants nuclear plant operators in the central and eastern United States to use a new seismic model to reassess the potential for earthquakes in their area.

    The study comes almost a year after the disaster in Japan in March when an earthquake and tsunami damaged the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, causing reactor fuel meltdowns and radiation releases.
