Japan mother may be jailed for “tweet critical of nuclear lobbyist”

Fukushima police travel 1,000 miles to interrogate her, examine computer — Officer: We only go outside prefecture for “potentially dangerous criminal” — “May be held without bail… without right to see lawyer”

VICE, Nathalie-Kyoko Stucky, May 11, 2014: Mari Takenouchi wrote a tweet critical of a nuclear lobbyist. Takenouchi may go to jail Prosecutors confirmed they will be flying to Okinawa to question her on May 13.

Police have already traveled from Fukushima to Okinawa to interrogate her fled her hometown of Tokyo with her infant son days after the disaster, hoping to avoid fallout from Fukushima. Takenouchi said police came to her apartment in Okinawa and examined her computer.

The prosecutor’s office will decide by July whether to indict she may be held without bail without a right to see a lawyer or have one present during questioning.


- So a word to the wise: ''If you're traveling to Japan leave your ''FREE SPEECH RIGHTS'' at home. You can't use them there under penalty of imprisonment.

''U.S. experts continue to support Japan’s ongoing efforts to deal with the challenges associated with Fukushima.'' ~President Barack Obama, March 9, 2012

Plant miRNAs Could Enter Host Blood And Tissues Via Food Intake, Study Suggests

    Date: September 19, 2011

    Summary: In a new study, researchers in China present a rather striking finding: that plant miRNAs could make it into the host blood and tissues via the route of food intake. Moreover, once inside the host, they can elicit functions by regulating host 'target' genes and thus regulate host physiology.

In a new study, Chen-Yu Zhang's group at Nanjing University present a rather striking finding: that plant miRNAs could make into the host blood and tissues via the route of food intake. Moreover, once inside the host, they can elicit functions by regulating host "target" genes and thus regulate host physiology.

MicroRNAs are a class of 19-24 nucleotide non-coding RNAs that do not code for proteins. MicroRNAs bind to target messenger RNAs to inhibit protein translation. In previous studies, the same group has demonstrated that stable microRNAs (miRNAs) in mammalian serum and plasma are actively secreted from tissues and cells and can serve as a novel class of biomarkers for disease and act as signaling molecules in intercellular communication.

Here, they report the surprising finding that exogenous plant miRNAs are present in the sera and tissues of various animals and that these exogenous plant miRNAs are primarily acquired orally, through food intake. MIR168a is abundant in rice and is one of the most highly enriched exogenous plant miRNAs in the sera of Chinese subjects. Functional studies in vitro and in vivo demonstrated that MIR168a could bind to the human/mouse low density lipoprotein receptor adapter protein 1 (LDLRAP1) mRNA, inhibit LDLRAP1 expression in liver, and consequently decrease LDL removal from mouse plasma. These findings demonstrate that exogenous plant miRNAs in food can regulate the expression of target genes in and thus physiology of mammals.

The finding is obviously very thought-provoking; for instance, it would indicate that in addition to eating "materials" (in the form of carbohydrates, proteins, etc), you are also eating "information" (as different miRNAs from distinct food sources could well bear different consequences on the regulation of host physiology once taken by the host due to potential regulation of different target genes as determined by the "information" contained within the miRNA sequence), thus providing a whole new dimension to "You are what you eat." Furthermore, the potential significances of this finding would be:


- So it seems that we're not only what we eat, but we eat the instructions for making what we eat too. Unfortunately, most of the instructions we're eating today are copyrighted to MONSANTO......

Hanford nuclear waste region produces high rate of rare birth defects


Six reasons to know about Hanford nuclear waste:

The timeline for officials to clean up the biggest, most toxic nuclear waste site in the Western hemisphere is shrinking.

The race to clean up 56 million gallons of radioactive liquid waste sitting at the Hanford site, 230 miles east of Portland, becomes more urgent each year.

With an estimated price tag of $120 billion, and a theoretical deadline of 2047, cleanup efforts are continually stalled by obstacles including time, money, the danger of the task at hand, and the sheer vastness of the site.

Attempts to store liquid and solid radioactive waste from the 586 square-mile site -- which supplied the plutonium for the bomb that ended WWII — have been failing for decades. VIDEO

''Furthermore, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and public health experts do not recommend that people in the United States take precautionary measures beyond staying informed. And going forward, we will continue to keep the American people fully updated — because I believe that you must know what I know as President.''

There Will Be Blood | China Uncensored

China Uncensored·Published on May 7, 2014

When you oppress people long enough, they eventually kill you. In April, a mob of 1000 descended on a group of 5 chengguan, China's urban management 'police', after rumor spread they murdered a man who stood up for a street vendor. There was not much of the chengguan left after that except for some bloody, graphic images. For China news like you can't get anywhere else, turn to China Uncensored. It's a laugh riot, so bring the tear gas.

- People all over the world are showing the police just what they think of them.
