'I am one of the Fukushima fifty': One of the men who risked their lives to prevent a catastrophe shares his story - Asia - World As he said goodbye to his colleagues they saluted him, like soldiers in battle. The wartime analogies were hard to avoid: in the international media he was a kamikaze, a samurai or simply one of the heroic Fukushima 50. The descriptions still embarrass him. “I’m not a hero,” he says. “I was just trying to do my job.” A stoic, soft-spoken man dressed in the blue utility suit of his embattled employer Tokyo Electric Power Co., (Tepco) Mr Yoshizawa still finds it hard to dredge up memories of fighting to stop catastrophe at the Fukushima Daiichi plant.

False Flag, 4 August 2012, London Olympics Slogans:2000 Sydney "Share the SPIRIT"2004 Athens "In the SPIRIT of the Games"2008 Beijing "One World One Dream"2012 London "Inspire a Generation"Slogans over this last 12 years read like a NWO manifesto!I wonder what kind of Inspiration they will be subjected to!Part One A few months ago I was discussing with another researcher (Bessie Totten) the possibility of a false flag at the London 2012 Olympics. She reckoned that the 4th of August was the most likely date if they were to pull anything, given that she has spent many years studying the occult practices of the Satanic elite, and their most revered sacrifice dates, I had no reason to doubt her word when she explained how she had singled out the 4th August. We both began looking into the 4th of August we conferred regularly with our findings.
Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant now more stable Iwaki, Japan -- Fukushima was just emerging from the snows of winter when the disaster hit - a 9.0-magnitude earthquake, the strongest in Japan's recorded history, followed by a tsunami. The wall of water destroyed much of the northeastern coast on March 11. In the northeast region of Fukushima, a different disaster was brewing: Three reactors at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant were melting down, irreparably damaged by the super tremor. Now, as the snows are beginning to fall again, the government has said the plant has attained a level of stability it is calling a "cold shutdown." As many as 3,000 workers - plumbers, engineers, technicians - stream into the facility each day.

New Perspectives on the Great Pyramid by Bernard I. Pietsch Introduction There are no scholarly footnotes to the following exposition on the message of the Great Pyramid. There is no appeal to historical analysis, archaeological tradition, nor extra terrestrial intervention. The only documentation offered is the stones of the Pyramid themselves; their placement, dimensions and geometry are the sole demonstration. Will the N-power industry regain public trust? - Forbes India News India is experiencing, for the first time, what many other countries have experienced for years - a demonstration of how easy it is for anti-nuclear activists to rouse public opinion to fever pitch by playing on the mysteries of the atom and the nature of radiation. Nothing has actually occurred in India to justify such public concern. But Fukushima has created just enough confusion for agitators to persuade people in at least this one locality (Kudankulam) that nuclear power poses a unique and enormous threat to their health and environment. ALSO SEE Six Forbes India calls in 2011 that were right This kind of misperception is wholly out of proportion to reality, and must be challenged because those who are propagating it are actually undermining the public interest.

Pan Macmillan Australia: About the Book On 11 March 2011, Japan was rocked by the most violent earthquake in her history and one of the largest ever recorded. The quake itself was just the start of a chain of disastrous events, creating a massive tsunami that slammed the shores of north eastern Japan. Close to 20,000 people were killed or disappeared under waves that reached more than 40 metres high as they smashed their way several kilometres inland. Yet the greatest damage was caused when the tsunami surged over the seawall of Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear power station, resulting in a multiple core meltdown that released vast quantities of radioactivity into the atmosphere and ocean. At one stage it even threatened the evacuation and irradiation of Tokyo itself, which would have spelt the end of Japan as we know it. Author Information
