Photo: AP Radiation-blurred images taken inside one of Japan's tsunami-hit nuclear reactors show steam, unidentified parts and rusty metal surfaces scarred by 10 months of exposure to heat and humidity. The photos - the first inside-look since the disaster - showed none of the reactor's melted fuel or its cooling water but confirmed stable temperatures and showed no major ruptures caused by the earthquake last March, said Junichi Matsumoto, spokesman for plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Company. Pipes and grates in the reactor's containment vessel were seen in some images. The Rise and Fall of Bitcoin. Oregon Governor Halts Death Penalty. Ron Paul: the Only Candidate to Condemn Racial Profiling at CNN Debate. Nov 23, 2011 Ron Paul was the only Republican candidate at the CNN debate to point out that racial profiling is wrong.
Fear mongering and sabre rattling were on full display as Republican presidential candidates bickered about national security at last night’s CNN debate. Yes, there were warnings about evil Iran wanting to destroy Israel, rumblings over shady Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal, loads of discussion about securing our borders from scary Mexicans and even a little mention of AIDS aid to Africa, which Rick Santorum callously equated not with human goodness, but national security. “The work that we’ve done in stabilizing that area, while humanitarian in nature, was absolutely essential for our national security,” he said, because “Africa was a country on the brink.” (Country? "power of nightmares" Farmers markets double, local food sales to hit $7 billion, USDA says. Locally produced foods could pull in $7 billion this year, according to a new U.S. Department of Agriculture report. Whether sold directly to consumers through farmers markets, roadside stands or middlemen such as supermarkets or restaurants, the market for food grown nearby is growing fast.
The industry hit $4.8 billion in sales in 2008, according to the report. Sales made straight from farms to buyers doubled in two decades to $1.2 billion from $650 million in the 1990s, according to the report. Local food sold through intermediary retail channels pulled in $2.7 billion. The surge may coincide with increasing interest in healthful eating and artisan cooking, trends that have encouraged major companies such as Burger King and Domino’s Pizza to focus on fresh ingredients.

Tunisia Tastes Democracy: Early Results Point to Victory for the Islamists - SPIEGEL ONLINE - News - International. Just before 7 a.m. on the day that Tunisians tasted democracy for the first time, the first person in line at the polling station in the chic Tunis district of El Menzah 6 was a princess.
Her name is Salwa Bey, an older woman with dyed-blonde hair wearing a gold-colored dress and matching Ray Ban sunglasses. Her uncle was Tunisia's last monarch, King Mohammed VIII al-Amin, who was a marionette of French colonial power, forced to abdicate when the country achieved independence in 1956. Half a century later, Salwa Bey was full of emotion as her country took its first tentative steps toward democracy on Sunday.

Occupy Wall Street – A Curious Sense of Collaboration and Bizarre Coalitions Back on September 18th I wrote a post that exposed the Occupy Wall Street protests for what they are… anarchists, leftist organized astro-turf rallies.
Since then the protests have exploded into other cities and the collaboration happening across the board is astonishing. Well, both extremely ironic and astonishing. You see, the protestors have a message of rebellion against big government, big corporations and the rich in general. Chinese men have already started to conquer Russia's female population. China has been struggling against overpopulation for decades.
It seems that this problem exists in the country for ages. It now appears that the Chinese authorities have finally managed to succeed in changing the traditional imbalance between male and female newborns. In 2010, 118.08 boys were born per 100 girls in China. In 2009, the correlation was 100 girls per 119.45 boys. Error 404 (Not Found)!!1. Activist Post Okay, you’re upset with the direction America is headed and you’ve been thinking of moving to another country.
Perhaps you feel exhaustively cynical about the political, economic, or social situation in the U.S. and think it is beyond repair. You wouldn’t be alone. Many top economists and other trend forecasters are now openly predicting that a total economic, environmental, and social collapse may be imminent in America. Americans, young professionals and baby boomers alike, are increasingly saying that their main desire for moving out of America is to seek “political asylum” of sorts. Apocalyptic squattersville for recession refugees - American Spring. How George Carranco wound up in Slab City, a squattersville at the end of the earth, is a story for these hard times.
Carranco, an ex-Marine and jack-of-all-trades, lost his job at a factory in San Diego when it shut down, lost his apartment when he couldn’t pay the rent, lost his temporary home when the city towed his van, and lost the van for good when the parking fees climbed to unattainable heights. More than a thousand dollars — might as well have been a million. Three years of bad breaks later, Carranco had had enough. He revived an ’83 Dodge camper that he picked up for free and, with his girlfriend and five Chihuahuas, headed east, 155 miles from San Diego, to where the roads give up and the desert takes over. Unwittingly, the 56-year-old Carranco had joined the latest wave of migrants to Slab City: refugees of the recession. Of course, Slab City is no city, and no picnic. Islam to become Russia’s predominant religion by 2050? Islam to become Russia’s predominant religion by 2050?
Islam is likely to become the primary religion in the Russian Federation by 2050 due to the high birth rate in Muslim republics. The current Chinese-led conquest of Russia’s Far East already seems to be a matter of immediate concern for the Kremlin. The ethnic birth rate disproportion in different regions of the country is another problem. The Muslim community may become the largest community by the middle of the current century. Therefore, Islam has all chances to become the predominant religion in Russia.
