Two Killed in Fresh Protests, World Media Prevented from Covering Tibet


Chinese need to get a grip, will never subjugate Tibet and after chopping the balls off of all males in Lahasa during 1950's need to concentrate on Tibet's independence, pay reparations for their crimes against Tibetan People

Dharamshala: -

Armed Chinese forces have shot dead more peaceful protesters in Tibet - as a large number of Tibetan civilians are reported to have demonstrated in Serta county, eastern Tibet.

The demonstration took place in Serta county, eastern Tibet (Ch: Karze prefecture, Sichuan province). Armed Chinese police opened fired on peaceful demonstrators and two individuals were shot dead. Sources said that over 600 armed Chinese security personnel arrived at the scene and began firing indiscriminately at the crowd.


Tibetans put to death by executioners of Manchu expeditionary force
A Tibetan man named Popo, aged 35, and another man, Dawa Dakpa in his 30s were shot and killed. The report said the incident occurred when a huge crowd of Tibetans had raised banners bearing slogans such as "independence for Tibet, long live His Holiness the Dalai Lama."

Many leaflets and posters were distributed that warned of more Tibetan self-immolations to protest against Chinese rule, if the Chinese authorities did not show concern in reply to Tibetan people's voices. Sources also stated that leaflets had appeared for two days (January 23-24) in and around Serta town.

The unrest has prompted Dr. Lobsang Sangay, elected political leader of the Tibetan government-in-exile, to call on the international community and governments "..to not remain passive" and "to intervene to prevent further bloodshed".


Chinese military needs to learn they bleed the same as Tibetans
"How long and how many tragic deaths are necessary before the world takes a firm moral stand? Silence from the world community sends a clear message to China that its repressive and violent measures to handle tensions in Tibetan areas are acceptable," he said.

"As a nation aspiring to become a world economic and political power, the People's Republic of China cannot be permitted to behave in such an immoral and violent manner," Dr. Sangay further added.

The United States on Tuesday said it was "seriously concerned" by the situation, calling on Chinese security forces to "exercise restraint" and urging authorities to allow journalists and diplomats into flash-point areas.

On Tuesday, Maria Otero, special coordinator for Tibetan issues at the US State Department, said Washington had repeatedly urged China to address "counterproductive policies in Tibetan areas".

"We urge the Chinese security forces to exercise restraint, and we renew our call to allow access to Tibetan areas of China for journalists, diplomats and other observers," Otero said in a statement.


No General:  Dali Lama can't get a military grip
The unrest comes at a time of increasing tensions in Amdho and Kham; two traditional provinces of eastern Tibet, where 17 people have self-immolated since 2009-- including four this month alone -- in protest at religious and cultural repression under Chinese rule.

The incident came a day after armed Chinese forces and police in Drakgo county on Monday, January 23rd opened fire on a crowd of Tibetans protesting against China's repressive policy against the Tibetan people, with three people reportedly shot dead and over 30 injured including 2 with serious injuries. More than 200 protesters were arrested, according to sources in Tibet.

China disputes this version of events, accusing "overseas secessionist groups" of trying to discredit the government by hyping accounts of what happened, and says one protester died in a clash triggered by a violent mob. But monks reached by phone Monday and Tuesday at the Drakgo Monastery said the shooting did occur, and that wounded people had taken refuge there as thousands of armed police stood guard outside.

China is a regime where freedom of information has considerably worsened under authoritarian rule. Details about current events in Tibet are still unknown as international correspondents were particular targets of the security forces and had to work under the continual threat of expulsion or having their visas withdrawn. Journalists were prevented from covering most of the events that threatened China's stability or might have given it a negative image, according to a latest statement issued by Paris based international press freedom watch dog; "Reporters Without Borders."

Morgellons: Mysterious Skin Disease Under Microscope


CIA owned ABC pathetically attempts to cover for satanic virologists at Ft. Detrick and CDC who created this Frankenstein monster of a disease and then turned it loose on the population of the United States; Americans have right to know what is killing them - and WHO

 A new study published today sheds light on Morgellons disease, a controversial condition marked by crawling sensations in the skin.

 Morgellons
In response to increasing reports of Morgellons symptoms, scientists from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention analyzed blood and skin samples from 115 patients in Northern California and found no evidence linking Morgellons to an infection or environmental cause.

"We saw a growing number of people complaining about these unusual symptoms, and as a public health agency we felt the need to see what was going on," said CDC spokesman Daniel Rutz. "It was important to rule out an infectious cause because a lot of people were concerned about transmission."

The study was published in the journal PLoS One.

Morgellons is not an official diagnosis. Rather, it's a collection of unexplained symptoms including abnormal sensations that sufferers describe as the feeling of insects crawling on the skin. Symptoms also include fatigue. And, perhaps most peculiarly, one symptom is tiny fibers found embedded in waxy scabs on the skin.

"Origins in nature" pure, unmitigated bullshit
"They're not alive," said Rutz, referring to rumors circulating on Morgellons message boards that the fibers are insects -- or even alien matter. "They're pieces of cotton and other elements of clothing; common debris."

Roughly 40 percent of the skin samples showed signs of chronic irritation.

"These sores appear often to be the result of people picking at themselves, as they would if they had a chronic irritation that couldn't be resolved any other way," said Rutz, adding that fibers likely slough off clothes and become encrusted in the healing wounds.

The study uncovered some other common threads: Drugs were detected in hair samples from half of the patients; and more than one-third of patients had a neuropsychiatric condition.

Oh yeah, this REALLY looks like a naturally occurring disease
Dr. Anne Louise Oaklander, a neurologist at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, said Morgellons might stem from damage to the nerves that transmit the itch sensation.

"This causes them to fire without appropriate cause, and it's natural that people interpret this as a sensation of insects crawling on the skin," she said.

Oaklander said the CDC study ruled out the possibility of insects or infections in Morgellons, opening the door for research into nerve damage and possible treatments.

Bioweapon Made in America:  Morgellons
"I think it's wonderful that the syndrome is receiving careful and thoughtful research attention, which has been scarce in the past," Oaklander said. "And I hope other physicians and researchers are encouraged to take these symptoms seriously, as they're very disabling."

Indeed, people with Morgellons have battled disbelief and dismissal from doctors. On the other hand, some patients refute the notion that a neurological problem could be to blame for their distressing physical symptoms.

"It becomes extremely important that everyone approaches this with an open mind; that includes both the patient and the practitioner," said Rutz. "Don't leave any stone unturned."

STRATFOR : Radioactive Material Stolen in Egypt


World population have their governments to thank for this poisoning of environment; there must and will be accountability, punishment; TEPCO, lying Japanese Prime Minister, mouthpiece Odano, "aides" should be executed along with media "journalists/editors" that aided/abetted Fukushima cover-up (U.S.Al Jazeera, CNN) of worst nuclear disaster in history

STRATFOR

Summary

 
Clibration devices that may contain radioactive material were reportedly stolen Jan. 18 from a contentious nuclear power plant that is under construction in Dabaa, Egypt. Due to the small amounts of radioactive material that would be in each device, the threat of malicious exposure to radiation is very low, though accidental exposure is a possibility. In fact, given the public discontent over the power plant, it is likely that the thieves do not know what the devices are and only took them as part of a larger theft intended to delay the plant's construction.

Analysis


Egyptian state-run newspaper Al-Ahram on Jan. 19 reported the theft a day earlier of calibration devices that may contain radioactive material from a controversial nuclear power plant under construction in Dabaa, Egypt. The identities of the thieves are unknown, but it is possible that they are local Bedouins, who have been vandalizing and violently protesting against the plant, which is being built on land taken from them without compensation.

Protester outside Dabaa nuclear construction site
If the stolen devices do contain radioactive material, that material could be extremely dangerous, but it is unlikely that the thieves even know what they possess. The radioactive devices were likely just part of a larger theft intended to delay the plant's construction. For this reason and others, the threat of malicious radiation exposure is very low. Instead, the greater risk is from accidental exposure.

It is still unclear what the stolen devices actually were. An unnamed source at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) reported Jan. 19 that tools used to calibrate measuring devices were stolen from the nuclear power plant in Dabaa. Subsequently, an official IAEA statement said the stolen items were "low-level radioactive sources." A statement from Egypt's Atomic Energy Agency and Ministry of Electricity and Energy, which certainly would have an incentive to downplay the incident's significance, indicated that the stolen devices were used to calibrate monitoring stations that track the amount of radioactivity at the site. Based on these statements, it is possible that the stolen devices calibrated radiation detection devices at monitoring stations.

Officials have not identified the radioactive material in the stolen devices, but it could be cesium-137. Radiation detection devices need to be calibrated at regular intervals, and cesium-137 is typically used as the radioactive source during calibration. It appears in amounts of less than 1 milligram in these devices, which gives off much less than 1 curie of radiation, the amount at which the device would require special handling.

But even at that amount, cesium-137 is an extremely dangerous isotope. It emits both gamma rays and beta particles, making it difficult and dangerous to handle, and it has a half-life of 30 years, which extends the time that exposure would be dangerous. In addition to the threat of radiation poisoning and potential carcinogenic effects, cesium-137 also is dangerous because it can mimic potassium, making it easily absorbed by the body, where it can interfere with basic biological processes. 

Authorities around world suppressing Geiger ownership
The number of devices stolen has not been released, so it is impossible to know the exact amount of radioactive material the thieves possess. However, the amount is likely extremely small. Consequently, if the material itself were sought for criminal use, it would most likely only be useful to poison a targeted individual. Radioactive isotopes have been used as a method of poisoning before. For example, former Soviet and Russian intelligence officer Alexander Litvinenko was killed by exposure to polonium-210 in the United Kingdom in 2006.

The greatest potential threat to the broader populace lies in accidental exposure after improper disposal of the devices containing radioactive material. In 1987, 1,000 Brazilians were exposed to radioactivity when cesium chloride was removed from salvaged medical equipment. Two hundred forty-four people showed significant exposure and four died as a result. In 2010, eight people in India were hospitalized due to exposure to cobalt-60, another radioactive isotope, after an unidentified object was dismantled at a scrap shop. No deaths resulted from the incident.

Poor Egyptians starve as leaders spend money on nuke weapons
If cesium-137 was in fact the material in the stolen devices, the overall risk for exposure is low. The radioactive material would be securely contained within the devices and would need to be removed, either by brute force or a systematic dismantling of the device. Additionally, each device contains such a small amount of the radioactive material that the yield from each device would need to be combined in order to produce an amount of any significance. That requires knowledge of the purpose of the devices.

This is knowledge that the thieves probably do not have. In addition to participating in violent clashes that have killed two people and injured at least 41 over the past week in Dabaa, Bedouins have damaged an estimated 500 million Egyptian pounds (about $83 million) worth of machinery at the nuclear power plant and stolen several computers, cables, furniture and transformers from it. The calibration devices may have been another item these Bedouins took, not knowing they contain radioactive material.
