ZeroHedge – Ukraine Scrambles Figher Jets, Intercepts Airplane Carrying Russian Deputy Premier – 10 May 2014

ZeroHedgeA few short hours ago, a Russian delegation which contained the deputy premier of Russia Dmitry Rogozin was flying back from Moldova’s capital Chisinau following his visit to Tiraspol as part of May 9 celebrations, when Ukraine scrambled fighter jets to intercept the Yak-42 carrying the Russian vice premier and forced it to promptly land back in Moldova.

The reason why this is surprising is that Rogozin was well aware in advance of taking off that Ukraine had closed its airspace to the Russian delegation.

Logo_activistpost-comAlbuquerque citizens continue to demonstrate that they have had enough of their increasingly violent police department. The Albuquerque Police Department has even had its acronym changed by residents to mean Another Person Dead.

Ukrainian Crisis: The Way Toward A Solution – 10 May 2014

It is beginning clearer to everyone that the main responsibility for the crisis that emerged in Ukraine lies with the organizers of the coup d’état in Kiev in February.

The coup has launched the spread of extremism, violence and instability. The responsibility also lies with those who supported these actions financially and politically.

But while the crisis is deepening and the Kiev government continues to use its army against the Ukrainian people, we must look for solutions to end the crisis as soon as possible. That is why Russia urges the interim government to cease immediately its military operation in the East of Ukraine as the only way to stop violence in the whole country.

Fracking’s Unexpected Side-Effect: Traffic Deaths On The Rise – 10 May 2014

RT logoFracking requires twice or three times as many truck trips per well as older oil and gas extraction techniques. That could be reason for drilling areas in US witnessing a significant spike in traffic fatalities, new analysis suggests.

The Associated Press has studied traffic death figures and US census data in six drilling states, and discovered that increased traffic fatalities is one side-effect of fracking, a controversial drilling technique, which means water, chemicals and sand are injected deep underground to break up rocks to free oil and natural gas there.

The report goes state by state, comparing fatal road accidents figures for the last several years in drilling counties to those in drilling-free parts of the states.

Lessons Of World War II Forgotten: Will Germany Be The Peacemaker? – 10 May 2014

RT logoThere is a grim irony that Gen. Philip Breedlove, the NATO Supreme Commander in Europe, should have announced that the alliance was considering permanently deploying troops in Eastern Europe only days before May 9.

This day is celebrated as Victory Day over Nazi Germany throughout Russia and other former Soviet republics.

For through World War II, the Russian, American and British peoples were all joined together in a desperate struggle for survival and then victory over the most monstrous tyranny in recorded history. And as Western leaders at the time, especially Winston Churchill, full and openly acknowledged, by far the greatest role and sacrifice in ensuring that victory over Nazism and fascism was suffered by the Russian people and the Red Army.

Pope Francis: UN Should Encourage ‘Legitimate’ Redistribution Of Wealth – 10 May 2014

RT logoPope Francis has called on the UN to do more to help the poor and encourage the “legitimate redistribution” of wealth.

“In the case of global political and economic organization, much more needs to be achieved, since an important part of humanity does not share in the benefits of progress and is in fact relegated to the status of second-class citizens,” Francis told Ban Ki-Moon on Friday.

During his latest meeting with UN officials, the Pope said that despite the decrease in poverty, “the world’s peoples deserve and expect even greater results.”

jon7November 22, 1963. Dallas.

Confusion. Urgent voices. People running. Screams.

He heard someone say distinctly, “After a life on Earth, things get interesting. The pattern breaks.”

There was a memory. His mother reading to him the story of Babel Tower, and the Tower crashing, and new clean rivers flowing…

When he went out all the way, that memory collapsed, and he swept through reefs of reflecting data in an ocean of surveillance. Continue reading

Fukushima’s Cesium-137 levels ‘50% Higher’ Than Previously Estimated – 10 May 2014

RT logoThe amount of Cesium-137 leaked from the Fukushima nuclear power plant could be worse than expected, a Japanese research team has concluded. They believe 50 percent more of the radioactive material could have escaped into the atmosphere and seawater.

The original estimate of 13,600 terabecquerels was made by Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO), the operator of the power station. However, a new report by Japanese researchers estimates that between 17,500 and 20,500 terabecquerels have been released, which is 50 percent higher than originally thought.

Michio Aoyama, a professor at Fukushima University’s Institute of Environmental Radioactivity who is part of the team, told Kyodo News that TEPCO is “underestimating” the amount of Cesium-137 that was released into the atmosphere and later fell into the sea.
