Japan’s Deadly Game of Nuclear Roulette
Leuren Moret

Of all the places in all the world where no one in their right mind would build
scores of nuclear power plants, Japan would be pretty near the top of the list.
The Japanese archipelago is located on the so-called Pacific Rim of Fire, a
large active volcanic and tectonic zone ringing North and South America, Asia
and island arcs in Southeast Asia. The major earthquakes and active volcanoes
occurring there are caused by the westward movement of the Pacific tectonic
plate and other plates leading to subduction under Asia.

Japansits on top of four tectonic plates, at the edge of the subduction zone,
and is in one of the most tectonically active regions of the world. It was
extreme pressures and temperatures, resulting from the violent plate movements
beneath the seafloor that created the beautiful islands and volcanoes of Japan.

Nonetheless, like many countries around the world - where General Electric and
Westinghouse designs are used in 85 percent of all commercial reactors - Japan
has turned to nuclear power as a major energy source. In fact the three top
nuclear-energy countries are the United States, where the existence of 118
reactors was acknowledged by the Department of Energy in 2000, France with 72
and Japan, where 52 active reactors were cited in a December 2003 Cabinet White

It is not a question of whether or not a nuclear disaster will occur in Japan;
it is a question of when it will occur.

Like the former Soviet Union after Chernobyl, Japan will become a country
suffering from radiation sickness destroying future generations, and widespread
contamination of agricultural areas will ensure a public-health disaster. Its
economy may never recover.

Considering the extreme danger of major earthquakes, the many serious
safety and
waste-disposal issues, it is timely and urgent - with about half its reactors
currently shut down - for Japan to convert nuclear power plants to fossil fuels
such as natural gas. This process is less expensive than building new power
plants and, with political and other hurdles overcome, natural gas
from the huge
Siberian reserves could be piped in at relatively low cost. Several US nuclear
plants have been converted to natural gas after citizen pressure forced energy
companies to make changeovers.

Commenting on this way out of the nuclear trap, Ernest Sternglass, a
renowned US
scientist who helped to stop atmospheric testing in America, notes that, ‘Most
recently the Fort St. Vrain reactor in Colorado was converted to fossil fuel,
actually natural gas, after repeated problems with the reactor. An earlier
reactor was the Zimmer Power Plant in Cincinnati, which was originally designed
as a nuclear plant but it was converted to natural gas before it began
operating. This conversion can be done on any plant at a small fraction [20-30
percent] of the cost of building a new plant. Existing turbines, transmission
facilities and land can be used.”

After converting to natural gas, the Fort St. Vrain plant produced
twice as much
electricity much more efficiently and cheaply than from nuclear energy
- with no
nuclear hazard at all, of course. It is time to make the changeover
from nuclear
fuel to fossil fuels in order to save future generations and the economy of

Slave Trade by the Arab Muslims, Part 1

Slave Trade by the Arab Muslims, Part 1: "Muhammad supported and patronized slavery for the interest of Islam and for his personal interest. There are so many evidence to show, from the writings of the Muslim historians, how Muhammad took, purchased, sold, and gave away both male and female slaves. Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya, a great scholar and Islamic historian says 'Muhammad had many male and female slaves. He used to buy and sell them, but he purchased more slaves then he sold. He once sold one black slave for two. His purchases of slaves were more than he sold"

Muslims display ‘Chand-Tara’ on the mosque under Archaeology Dept. control: "The local Muslims fitted ‘Chand- Tara’ on the mosque at ‘Dabhol Dhakka (Quay)’ in Dapoli taluka when the mosque is under the control of Archaeology Department. The local Hindus realized this and raised objection to the ‘Chand –Tara’ displayed on the mosque; therefore, it was removed later."

Court tells ICSE to remove ‘offensive passages’

Court tells ICSE to remove ‘offensive passages’: "

New Delhi: A Delhi court has directed the Council of the Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) to exclude offensive citations of some of India’s most famous freedom fighters from its history and civics curriculum. The order is binding from the beginning of the next academic session in 1,793 schools across the country. The CISCE conducts the Indian Certificate for Secondary Education (ICSE) examination.

According to the petition filed by Dina Nath Batra, national convener of Shiksha Bachao Andolan Samiti, the chapter titled Revival of Terrorism in Standard 10 history books casts a negative light on the freedom fighters.

“Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Lala Lajpat Rai and Bipin Chandra Pal have been referred to as militants and extremists, while Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev as terrorists,” read the petition. There are similar passages in the civics book too. The books have been published by Goyal Brothers Prakashan and written by DN Kundra.

Additional district judge Inder Jeet Singh said: “The Union of India, the ICSE and Kundra are restrained to issue appropriate instructions/guidelines, either in their regular standing instructions/curriculum/syllabus that such objectionable passages, that is, Militant, Radical, Rationalism or Extremism, Extremist, Militant Nationalism, out of desperation, they took to terrorism, terrorist remained more active, extremist party, took to terrorism, impact of revolutionary terrorism on national movement, or the like expressions, are not to be taught or published in any form by the concerned or affiliated schools (sic)”.

Monika Arora, Batra’s counsel, said: “The ICSE has taken an anti-view of our freedom fighters’ struggle, who laid their lives to free our country from the clutches of Englishmen.”

Maharashtra has 118 ICSE schools, Mumbai and Delhi have 60, NCR 30. Over 1 lakh students from Maharashtra opt for ICSE board every year.

“It is unfortunate that despite getting freedom in 1947, such objectionable and insulting portions regarding our historical past have not been removed from the course material,” Batra alleged in his petition.

His counsel argued that the current curriculum can pollute the young minds of our country.
