David Suzuki has issued a scary warning about Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant, saying that if it falls in a future earthquake, it’s “bye bye Japan” and the entire west coast of North America should be evacuated.
The “Nature of Things” host made the comments in a talk posted to YouTube after he joined Dr. David Schindler for “Letting in the Light,” a symposium on water ecology held at the University of Alberta on Oct. 30 and 31.
An excerpt of the talk shows Suzuki outlining a frightening scenario that would result from the destruction of the nuclear plant.
“Fukushima is the most terrifying situation I can imagine,” he said.
“Three out of the four plants were destroyed in the earthquake and in the tsunami. The fourth one has been so badly damaged that the fear is, if there’s another earthquake of a seven or above that, that building will go and then all hell breaks loose.
“And the probability of a seven or above earthquake in the next three years is over 95 per cent.”
Suzuki said that an international team of experts needs to go into the Fukushima plant and help fix the problem, but said the Japanese government has “too much pride to admit that.”
“I have seen a paper which says that if in fact the fourth plant goes under in an earthquake and those rods are exposed, it’s bye bye Japan and everybody on the west coast of North America should evacuate,” he said.
“If that isn’t terrifying, I don’t know what is.”
Suzuki’s warning came as radiation from the Fukushima plant has been detected in northern Alaska and along the west coast, CBC News reported.
Radiation in Alaskan waters could reach Cold War levels, said Douglas Dasher, a researcher at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, although John Kelley, a professor emeritus at the same university, doesn’t seem as certain that it will reach dangerous levels for humans.
“The data they will need is not only past data but current data, and if no one is sampling anything then we won’t really know it, will we,” he told the network. – Source: www.huffingtonpost.ca

Anthony Peake grew up near Liverpool, England. He studied sociology and history at the University of Warwick before attending the London School of Economics. Prior to becoming a full-time science writer, he was a management consultant in the human resources industry.
He is the author of several books and probably best known for his fascinating theory, which he terms Cheating the Ferryman. It suggests a new approach to the nature of consciousness and its relationship with the external world.
His previous titles include The Daemon, The Labyrinth of Time, Is There Life after Death? and Out of Body Experiences.
In this program, we discuss his latest book, The Infinite Mindfield. Peake delves into what many scientists believe to be the thorniest problem, namely how does the material substance of the brain give rise to the ethereal self-awareness we all experience?
Peake says that when you look at things like the science of quantum mechanics or the astonishing properties of DNA, you can’t help but realize that everything is driven by consciousness. He says that our understanding of our own mind is very limited, yet we have materialistic scientists drawing conclusions based on this limited understanding.
In the second hour, we go deeper into some of the fundamental philosophical questions. We discuss epistemology, promissory materialism and the practice of self-observance as a means to perfect our own awareness.

On the back of Brand’s forthcoming guest editorship of the New Statesman, Paxo charged in: “Who are you to edit a political magazine?”
“A man who was asked by an attractive woman,” replied the comedian and actor. Following a rant that spanned “current paradigms”, “voting practises” and “political apathy,” Brand barked across the hotel room “grow your beard”. “You are a very trivial man,” countered Paxo, both comfortable in their cross-cultural badinage. ~ Huffington Post

Throughout history, numerous clues and hints regarding geometry and frequency have been staring at us, calling to us, and waiting for us to put them into place like pieces of a giant puzzle. Here at the dawn of a new age, this sonic-geometric puzzle is finally nearing completion, revealing the building blocks of a language based on energy, frequency and form.
How will we use it? With whom will we be communicating? Now that we know the basics of this new language, maybe we are ready to begin the conversation…. again?

Joseph Atwill is an independent scholar who has set the world of New Testament scholarship in a new direction. In his book “Caesar’s Messiah – The Roman Conspiracy to Invent Jesus”, Atwill outlines the series of events in Jesus’ ministry that are parallels with the events of the battle campaign of Titus Flavius as recorded by Josephus Flavius in “War of the Jews”.
Numerous scholars had noticed the parallels between the Gospels and Josephus’ work before, but Atwill is the first to notice that all the parallels take place in exact sequence and draw a revolutionary conclusion.
Follow along in this program as Atwill contends these correlations, talks about linguistic typology and the reasons why the imperial Cult of Rome, with the Flavians at the center, wanted to invent the story of Jesus Christ for their own benefit.

Was Jesus the invention of a Roman emperor? The author of this ground-breaking book believes he was. “Caesar’s Messiah” reveals the key to a new and revolutionary understanding of Christian origins.
The clues leading to its startling conclusions are found in the writings of the first-century historian Flavius Josephus, whose “Wars of the Jews” is one of the only historical chronicles of this period.
Closely comparing the work of Josephus with the New Testament Gospels, “Caesar’s Messiah” demonstrates that the Romans directed the writing of both. Their purpose: to offer a vision of a “peaceful Messiah” who would serve as an alternative to the revolutionary leaders who were rocking first-century Israel and threatening Rome.
Similarly, “Caesar’s Messiah” will rock our understanding of Christian history as it reveals that Jesus was a fictional character portrayed in four Gospels written not by Christians but Romans. This Flavian Signature edition adds Atwill’s latest discoveries of numerous parallel events in sequence which ultimately reveal the identity of the true authors of the Gospels.
