California Aquifers Contaminated With Billions Of Gallons Of Fracking Wastewater – 9 October 2014

RT logoIndustry illegally injected about 3 billion gallons of fracking wastewater into central California drinking-water and farm-irrigation aquifers, the state found after the US Environmental Protection Agency ordered a review of possible contamination.

According to documents obtained by the Center for Biological Diversity, the California State Water Resources Board found that at least nine of the 11 hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, wastewater injection sites that were shut down in July upon suspicion of contamination were in fact riddled with toxic fluids used to unleash energy reserves deep underground. The aquifers, protected by state law and the federal Safe Water Drinking Act, supply quality water in a state currently suffering unprecedented drought.

The documents also show that the Central Valley Water Board found high levels of toxic chemicals – including arsenic, thallium, and nitrates – in water-supply wells near the wastewater-disposal sites.

White House Accused Of Covering-Up Colombian Prostitution Scandal – 9 October 2014

RT logoThe scandal that has plagued the United States Secret Service in recent weeks and led to the resignation of its director has widened yet again, this time with the White House being accused of covering up details about a 2012 incident in Colombia.

On the heels of a series of reports that have already proved to be damaging to the reputation of the president’s security detail, the Washington Post said on Wednesday that senior White House aides knew at the time about a prostitution scandal during a South American trip two years ago that led to disciplinary action against nearly two dozen officials from the Secret Service and US military.

Carol Leonnig, the Post journalist that has broken several stories concerning ineptitude within the Secret Service as of late, reported with David Nakamura on Wednesday that the White House was aware that a prostitute stayed with an advance-team member staying in Colombia ahead of US President Barack Obama’s arrival for a summit there, contrary to the administration’s official claims at the time.

Next generation London Underground trains will be “driverless” Mayor Boris Johnson and rail bosses have announced. Unions called the move “lethal and cash driven nonsense” that will cost jobs.

Images of the new tube’s futuristic design, which is set to feature walk through carriages and air conditioning, were unveiled by the Mayor on Thursday.

The modernized tubes are expected to begin servicing Londoners in 2022. While they have been designed to operate on a purely automated basis, TfL say they would initially be manned by drivers.

When TfL’s older tube fleet has been entirely replaced by their modern counterparts, the newly designed trains will begin running on a driverless basis with a staff member on board.

RT logoAs Islamic State threatens to capture the Syrian city of Kobani, Britain’s defense secretary, Michael Fallon, has called upon the Turkish government to join the UK and its allies in military operations against the jihadist militants.

In a series of broadcast interviews, Fallon made an urgent appeal for more Middle Eastern states to form an alliance with the US and UK in their fight against Islamic State (also known as ISIS, or ISIL), stressing that the US and Britain could not act as the “saviors” of Syria and Iraq alone.

Fallon said that UK MPs would not back a move for Britain to extend its aerial bombing of ISIS militants in Iraq to the neighboring state of Syria, despite warnings such a maneuver is vital to defeating the group.

Jamye Price – Weekly Lightblast – Creating – 9 October 2014

JamyePrice2012closeupBlessed Being, you are at a time of great creative power as humanity begins the collective realization of their true beingness. You are learning that you are unique and sovereign, and to deny or suppress that results in less flow. You are learning that you are united with All Life, all aspects of Life.

You are brave indeed, for you must find that sovereignty and that unity within the self, within all experience. No book can give you the definitive steps, only reminders of the brilliance within you to discover. Continue reading
