Seattle Radiation Monitoring

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 26, 2011 by highboldtage

“These guys began removing air filters from the intake to the ventilation system of the Physics and Astronomy building at the University of Washington and then measuring the levels of radiation they were emitting. Initially, the filters contained nothing out of the ordinary. Then, sometime between 12pm on 17 March and 2pm on 18 March, the radiation levels began to rise.”

“What they found was small amounts of iodine-131, iodine-132, tellurium-132, iodine-133, cesium-134 and cesium 137.”

Corrupt BLM Approves BP Pipeline Across Pristine Wilderness of Four States!

BLM Approves Ruby Pipeline for BP Gas

Wild Horses to Pay the Price

July 14, 2010

WASHINGTON, DC – The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has just approved the Ruby Pipeline through a destructive route across the West. This is the same pipeline that will carry British Petroleum (BP) gas.

The route chosen and approved by BLM for the Ruby Pipeline is the least expensive and most damaging route. Instead of choosing to build on already disturbed lands along highways and power lines, the BLM has allowed the path of most destruction through pristine wilderness.

In April, suspicions peaked when the project coordinator for the pipeline told a reporter that “All hell would break loose” once the plan was approved, and that the pristine land along the route would “look like Hiroshima.” Would that be a reason to thin out the horse herds? The BLM and El Paso both vigorously deny the Calico roundup was related in any way to the pipeline, but it is clear from documents that the mustangs were discussed by both at several points in the permitting process.

Drought Forecast for Southwest US, Northeast California & Northern Nevada

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on July 15, 2010 by highboldtage

The southwest monsoon that typically peaks during August has started weakly. Most tools on the monthly and seasonal time scales indicate a tilt in the odds for below median rainfall. Therefore, persistence or development is forecast for Arizona and New Mexico. A dry climatology favors drought persistence across western Wyoming, northeast California, Nevada, and the leeward sides of the Hawaiian Islands.

Banksters of America Hits a Judicial Speedbump in Utah Courtroom

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on June 7, 2010 by highboldtage

(St. George, UT) June 5, 2010 – A court order issued by Fifth District Court Judge James L. Shumate May 22, 2010 in St. George, Utah has stopped all foreclosure proceedings in the State of Utah by Bank of America Corporation.
The second part of the motion, Barlow filed, claims that neither the lender, nor MERS*, nor Bank of America, nor any other Defendant, has any remaining interest in the mortgage promissory note. The note has been bundled with other notes and sold as mortgage-backed securities or otherwise assigned and split from the Trust Deed. When the note is split from the trust deed, “the note becomes, as a practical matter, unsecured.” Restatement (Third) of Property (Mortgages) § 5.4 cmt. a (1997). A person or entity only holding the trust deed suffers no default because only the note holder is entitled to payment. Basically, “[t]he security is worthless in the hands of anyone except a person who has the right to enforce the obligation; it cannot be foreclosed or otherwise enforced.” Real Estate Finance Law (Fourth) § 5.27 (2002).

Cannatourism: Why Not Here, Humboldt?

With weed legalized in Breckenridge, how can Park City compete?

Tourism » Colo. mountain town downplays implications of decriminalization vote

By Jay Hamburger

Park Record

Updated: 03/14/2010 06:59:53 PM MDT

 

When Park City’s tourism boosters boast why skiers and snowboarders should choose the city, they talk about Utah’s fluffy powder, the easy access from Salt Lake City’s airport and the three local ski resorts being so close to each other.

It’s a sales pitch that really cannot be replicated elsewhere in North America.

Another mountain resort, though, a formative competitor one state to the east, offers something else that some would consider an enticement to visit: the decriminalization of possession of small amounts of marijuana– a sales pitch that Park City certainly cannot emulate.

Voters in Breckenridge, Colo., on Election Day 2009 passed a ballot measure that removes criminal penalties from town law for the possession of one ounce or less of marijuana and paraphernalia related to marijuana use by people at least 21 years old.

Utah Bill Criminalizes Miscarriage

Utah Bill Criminalizes Miscarriage

By Rachel Larris, RH Reality Check

A bill passed by the Utah House and Senate this week and waiting for the governor’s signature, will make it a crime for a woman to have a miscarriage, and make induced abortion a crime in some instances.

The bill passed by legislators amends Utah’s criminal statute to allow the state to charge a woman with criminal homicide for inducing a miscarriage or obtaining an illegal abortion.

New Utah Bill To Allow Police Misconduct Be Hidden From Public

New Bill To Allow Police Misconduct Be Hidden From Public

Last Update: 2/12 10:50 pm
A new bill proposed at the legislature would allow for police to withhold misconduct reports from the public. Supporters of the bill believe that police misconduct should be kept secret from the public so to not discredit police testimony. Others say that a forthright police unit is essential to the community.
In September, Jared Massey was zapped with a taser by Trooper John Gardner. A video of the incident was recorded from Gardner’s patrol car. Gardner can be seen shocking Massey until he hits the ground while Massey’s wife screams from the side of their SUV.
More than a million people watched the video on YouTube Massey was shocked to see his new found fame. The footage may have never been seen had Massey not made a records request to obtain the tape.
