Journey to the North: Part 2

 

flagLate evening on the second conference day and my mind is working furiously to process the information provided to it, as well as to thaw itself out.

The morning began well enough with a 7 a.m. bus ride to the sprawling University of Indiana campus. Breakfast with eggs to order was available for a reasonable price along with an assortment of general snack food.

opinion-081Granted, this was somewhat less fancy than Austin Peay’s Saturday fare, though I’ve been assured that had I known more about the campus and area, I could have achieved highly delectable food service. This certainly seems likely, as the 75 person cafe area could hardly be expected to be the main cafeteria establishment. «Read the rest of this article»


Capitalism has corrupted the reason for which money was created!

 

Let’s remember how money, on which our economy is based, started out simply as a system of “trade.” Now days money is capital, and capital is for making more capital. It’s called capitalism. And it’s not the market with which my mother traded…not at all!

countrystoreToo many years ago, when my mother would go to town from our farm, she didn’t go to the store. She went to “trade.”

I never thought twice about why she would say “trade,” and the rest of us would say we were going to buy something.

opinion-081Of course, Mom wasn’t a dummy. Maybe she was more of an economist than the guys who deal with capitalism for the Federal Reserve. «Read the rest of this article»

Last Act: Bush ‘sign off’ weakened radiation exposure limits

 

Huge hikes in allowable radioactivity in drinking water, air and soil

radiation-risk-symbolWashington, DC :  In January, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency moved to dramatically relax public protections against radioactive releases, according to the Committee to Bridge the Gap (CBG) and Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER). The new standards permit public exposure to radiation levels vastly higher than EPA had previously deemed unacceptably dangerous.

Outgoing Acting EPA Administrator Marcus Peacock signed off on the new Protective Action Guide on January 15th, but the late signing prevented the document from being printed in the Federal Register before Inauguration Day. CBG and PEER are calling on the incoming Obama administration to withdraw it from the Federal Register before it is published within the next few days.
The radiation “PAGs” are supposed to be protocols for protecting the public from radiological incidents ranging from nuclear power-plant accidents to transportation spills to “dirty” bombs to contamination events at metal recycling facilities. In October, the Bush administration shrugged off objections filed by more than 60 public health and environmental groups to the emerging draft rewrite of the 1992 PAGs. «Read the rest of this article»
