Le Monde: Demanding Allies

Le Monde argues that the US and Europe are firmly united in their determination to eradicate "warrior jihadism," but divided by tactics, specifically US abandonment of international law and the laws of war, and its decision to invade Iraq. Europeans must be "demanding allies," it contends.

The New York Times: The Immigration Road Show

"This was supposed to be the time that the House and Senate got serious about immigration. But House Republican leaders have decided they don't want to negotiate just yet. The immigration debate has been obscured for too long by a fog of distortion and fear, and the House Republicans are gambling that the public won't see through it. The American people deserve better. They deserve action on a good immigration bill, and if this do-nothing Congress won't give it to them, they should elect a Congress that will," writes the New York Times.

Specter to Grill Officials on Bush Ignoring Laws

The Bush administration will have to explain why it thinks it can ignore or overrule laws passed by Congress in a hearing next week, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Arlen Specter said on Wednesday. Specter said he hoped to force the Bush administration to reduce its use of "signing statements" - memos that reserve the right to ignore laws if the president thinks they impinge on his authority.

Iran: US opts for regime change, not force

Asia Times
by Gareth Porter

06/21/06

In every statement on Iran, officials of the Bush administration routinely repeat the party line that 'the president never takes any option off the table.' Despite the constant invocation of a possible military attack on Iran, however, a little-noticed section of the administration's official national-security strategy indicates that President George W Bush has already decided that he will not use military force to try to prevent Iran from going nuclear. Instead, the administration has shifted its aim to pressing Iran to make internal political changes, based on the dubious theory that it would lead to a change in Iranian nuclear policy...

Troops echo Murtha's frustration

San Jose Mercury News

06/21/06

While Staff Sgt. Randy Myers was dodging roadside bombs in Iraq, his congressman was calling the war a lost cause. Sixteen-term Rep. John Murtha, a decorated Vietnam veteran and military hawk, has become the face of the Democrats' anti-war movement since he called for the withdrawal of U.S. troops last fall. His oft-repeated criticism of the Bush administration's war policies also has earned him the wrath of Republicans. In Murtha's southwest Pennsylvania district, however, many share the war critic's views. At a welcome home ceremony this week for Myers and other troops from the Johnstown, Pa.-based 876th Engineer Battalion, the crowd cheered when a Murtha aide welcomed the troops on the congressman's behalf. Myers said he backs Murtha, an opinion echoed by a number of other troops and their families. Several share his frustration with the conflict...

ORGANIZING AGAINST GENETICALLY ENGINEERED FOOD

For eight years OCA has campaigned steadfastly against genetically engineered foods and crops, educating the media and the public about how gene-spliced foods pose serious hazards to public health and the environment. Over the past year we've been trying to stop the biotech industry and the Farm Bureau from ramming through "Monsanto Preemption" laws in several dozen states that take away the rights of local and county governments to ban genetically engineered crops. Our joint efforts with our allies have at least temporarily stopped these Monsanto laws in a number of states, including California, North Carolina, and Nebraska. Unfortunately these anti-consumer laws have passed in 15 other states. Tired of waging defensive battles, we've decided to focus on lobbying and passing a mandatory labeling law for GE foods in Congress, similar to the law in effect in the European Union, which has basically driven GE foods and foods off the market. A recent USDA poll found that 83% of Americans support mandatory labels for GE food. Although the labeling bill, HR 5269, The Genetically Engineered Food Right to Know Act, introduced by Rep. Dennis Kucinich (Democrat-Ohio) on May 2, 2006, will not pass Congress this session, OCA is determined to get over 100 co-sponsors for the bill over the next year.

BANNING A CANCER-CAUSING PESTICIDE-METHYL IODIDE

In Feb. 2006 OCA generated thousands of letters and phone calls to the EPA opposing the proposed use of the carcinogenic pesticide methyl iodide. In January, the EPA had indicated it would allow farmers to apply up to 400 lbs. of the carcinogenic chemical to each acre. Methyl iodide is especially hazardous, vaporizing quickly and drifting over large distances. Reacting to widespread media coverage and public pressure EPA backed off on legalizing the pesticide.

ELIMINATING TOXIC PESTICIDE SPRAYING ON PUBLIC LANDS

In January 2006, OCA members and supporters sent over 20,000 letters to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), protesting a federal plan to spray massive amounts of pesticides, including known developmental and reproductive toxins, on 932,000 acres of public lands, including National Monuments and Conservation areas. In the wake of this controversy, the BLM delayed its final decision on spraying pesticides until Fall 2006. OCA will continue pressuring the BLM in the meantime.

STOPPING CHEMICAL INDUSTRY EXPERIMENTS ON CHILDREN

In late 2005--early 2006, OCA alerted our nationwide network to a proposed Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulation allowing industry to carry out experiments on children with toxic pesticides and chemicals. After a barrage of 15,000 letters from OCA, and thousands more from our allies, the EPA's own union of scientists came against the rule. Reacting to the growing backlash, EPA administrators announced they would ban chemical testing on children. Unfortunately after the media reported this change in public policy, and public attention turned elsewhere, EPA bureaucrats reinstated similar language back into the proposed regulation. The battle continues.

Arctic Sunrise Storms into Whaling Meetings

Breaking News (excerpt)

June 20, 2006

I’m writing you from St. Kitts, site of the 58th meeting of the International Whaling Commission. Our ship, the Arctic Sunrise, after being refused entry for more than a week, entered the waters of St. Kitts today to stage a peaceful protest. We landed on the beach and began placing more than 866 whale tails in the sand to symbolize the number of whales slaughtered by the Japanese government this year. Ten of our activists have already been arrested.

The International Whaling Commission meetings have just ended, and they dramatically displayed how narrow a margin exists between the pro-whaling and anti-whaling nations. A mere 2 votes (remember that number!) prevented Japan from eliminating conservation efforts for dolphins, porpoises, and small whales; and implementing a secret ballot. The Japanese delegation also narrowly lost their bids to abolish the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary, exempt themselves from the commercial whaling ban, and kick Greenpeace out of the IWC meetings.

And you should know that your efforts played a major role in these victories. Due to pressure from concerned people around the world, including thousands of emails and faxes from you, Guatemala and Honduras decided NOT to attend the IWC meetings. Those two votes made all the difference. THANK YOU!

But after losing several votes, Japan pulled out all the stops, and actually won a non-binding resolution pronouncing that whales are guilty of over-fishing – by 1 vote! That’s right, the Japanese succeeded in convincing more than 30 nations that whales eat too much fish! And that wasn’t the only fishy thing that happened during the meetings. One of Japan’s pro-whaling allies arrived late to the meetings with their membership fees in cash, in a brown paper bag.

Los Angeles set for major earthquake

Los Angeles at risk of major earthquake

22 June 2006

By Jack Doyle

THE city of Los Angeles is at risk from a major earthquake in the near future, according to research published yesterday.

Scientists examining the southern part of the San Andreas fault, which runs to the east of the city, found evidence of a pressure build up, as two continental plates rub against each other.

The researchers used satellite data to measure the amount of movement between the North American and Pacific plates.

They found evidence of substantial movement of the plates, suggesting that pressure may soon be released in an earthquake.

The greater the amount of movement along a fault line, the greater chance of a giant quake.

Professor Fialko, from the Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics at the University of California, led the study.

He said: “The observed strain rates confirm that the southern section of the San

Andreas fault may be approaching the end of the interseismic phase of the earthquake cycle.”

A great earthquake has not been recorded in the southern section of the fault for at least 250 years.

In 1906, when the northern section of the fault erupted, around 3,000 people died in San Francisco in an earthquake measuring 7.8 on the Richter scale. In 1857, the central part of the fault erupted, creating the Fort Tejon earthquake, which measured 8.0.

The science of predicting earthquakes is notoriously difficult. Seismologists struggle to judge exactly when and where earthquakes will occur.

Fialko’s research was published by science journal Nature.

Los Angeles set for major earthquake

JEREMY LOVELL

THE southern end of the San Andreas fault near Los Angeles - which has been still for more than two centuries - is under immense stress and could produce a massive earthquake at any moment, a scientist said yesterday.

Professor Yuri Fialko, of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at La Jolla, California, said given average annual movement rates in other areas of the fault, there could be enough pent-up energy in the southern end to trigger a cataclysmic jolt of up to ten metres or 32ft, far bigger than the earthquake which destroyed San Francisco in 1906. A sudden lateral movement of between seven and ten metres would be among the largest ever recorded.

According to the US Geological Survey (USGS), the 1906 earthquake, which killed between 3,000 and 6,000 people and left up to 300,000 homeless, was produced by a sudden movement of the northern end of the fault of up to 21ft or 6.4m.

Professor Fialko said there had been no recorded movement at the southern end of the fault - the 800-mile long geological meeting point of the Pacific and the North American tectonic plates - since the dawn of European settlement in the area.

"The observed strain rates confirm that the southern section of the San Andreas fault may be approaching the end of the inter-seismic [between earthquakes] phase of the earthquake cycle," he wrote in the science journal Nature.

He said the lack of movement for 250 years correlated with the predicted gaps between major earthquakes at the southern end of the fault of between 200 and 300 years.

Elsewhere on the fault, there were average slippage rates up to a couple of centimetres a year that prevented the build-up of explosive pressure deep underground.

When these became blocked and then suddenly broke free they produced tremors or earthquakes of varying intensity, depending on the movement that had taken place before and for the duration of the blockage.

Prof Fialko said there were three possible explanations for the lack of observed movement in the southern section: creepage under the surface; that it had no external manifestation; and that it simply might not move as much as the rest of a major blockage.

"Except for the first possibility, the continued quiescence increases the likelihood of a future event," he wrote.

Making calculations based on a wide range of land and satellite observations, Prof Fialko discounted the idea of creepage and warned of an impending disaster.

"Regardless of fault geometry and mechanical properties of the ambient crust, results presented in this study lend support to intermediate-term forecasts of a high probability of major earthquakes on the southern San Andreas fault system."

USGS said that the most recent major earthquakes in the north and central zones of the San Andreas fault were in 1857 and 1906.

Prof Fialko cautioned that understanding earthquakes was a complicated subject.

"Although highly accurate and detailed geodetic data provide useful constraints on the rate of build-up of stress and the probability of large events on a given fault, the relationships between loading rate, absolute stress level and the rate of seismicity are still poorly understood," he said.

Handy-Verbot in Krankenhäusern ist unnötig?

Klinik ohne Handy-Verbot

Artikel in der Apotheken Umschau vom 15. Juni 2006

Zitat: ? Klinik ohne Handy-Verbot Weil ihre Signale angeblich die Elektronik medizinischer Geräte beeinflussen können, dürfen Mobiltelefone in Krankenhäusern nicht benutzt werden. Für die Klinik der Medizinischen Hochschule Hannover wurde das Verbot jetzt aufgehoben. Begründung: Untersuchungen der amerikanischen Mayo-Klinik und der Universität Gießen kamen unabhängig voneinander zu dem Schluss, dass Handys bereits im Abstand von einem Meter die Funktion solcher Apparaturen nicht stören. Kritiker vermuten schon länger, dass das Verbot einen anderen Zweck erfüllt: Die Betreiber der Krankenhäuser wollen an der Benutzung ihrer Festnetz- Telefone verdienen.? Ende des Zitats

//www.presseportal.de/story.htx?nr=838309&firmaid=52678

Und was ist mit den Patienten?

Das Verbot der Nutzung hatte bisher seine Berechtigung und sollte auch bestehen bleiben. Nicht jedes Krankenhaus verfügt über modernste, einstrahlungssichere, elektronische Klinikgeräte. Und wer prüft ob die vorhandenen Geräte störstrahlungsfest sind. Diese Prüfungen können nur beim Hersteller erfolgen und ob die, die dafür erforderlichen Gerätschaften und Fähigkeiten verfügen kann man zurzeit stark bezweifeln. Entsprechende Hochfrequenzprüfsender die ein oder mehrere besprochene Handys simulieren, Antennen, Kabel, Analysatoren und reflektionsarme Räume sind in der Regel nur bei ganz wenigen speziellen Firmen vorhanden.

Wer sich etwas mit Physik und Biologie auskennt sollte auch den Patienten im elektromagnetischen Feld sehen. Herzschrittmacher kann man für bestimmte Signale einstrahlungsfest machen aber am anderen Ende der Elektrode hängt ein krankes und störanfälliges Herz, das mit den richtigen Signalen vom Herzschrittmacher versorgt werden muss und nur mit denen und nicht mit zusätzlichen Signalen von Handys.

In vielen Krankenhäusern gibt es DECT- Telefone und Wireless LAN mit Repeatern. Dem medizinischen und verwaltungstechnischen Personal ist oft nicht bewusst welche Gefahren von diesen Einrichtungen ausgehen. Hochfrequente Wirkungen sind vielfältig und können in Verbindung mit Medikamenten zusätzliche, unvorstellbare Vorgänge auslösen.

Außerdem wer als Patient das Gebimmel und sinnlose gequatschte der Mitpatienten ertragen muss ist heute schon zu bedauern. Das Nutzungsverbot für Handys in Kliniken muss bleiben!



Tetra-Funkgeräte im Krankenhaus genauso schädlich wie GSM-Handys MDA: Herzschrittmacher, Infusionspumpen und EKG-Monitore gestört

London (pte/22.11.2002/17:58) - Nach einem Bericht des britischen Wissenschaftsdienstes Newscientist stellen Tetra-Geräte ein größeres Risiko in Spitälern dar als bisher angenommen. Das Magazin beruft sich dabei auf eine Studie der britischen "Medical Devices Agency" (MDA), einer Regierungsbehörde, die die Sicherheit der technischen Einrichtungen in Großbritanniens Krankenhäuser überwacht. Die MDA veröffentlichte das Endergebnis ihrer Studie bereits im Februar 2002 auf ihrer Homepage. Der Bericht wurde damals allerdings weitgehend ignoriert.

//www.medical-devices.gov.uk/mda/mdawebsitev2.nsf/webvwSearchResults/37CE5B0D2F6E45C900256A99005B8734?OPEN

Omega siehe auch unter: //tinyurl.com/hedzj

Die Situation wird von den britischen Behörden deswegen als bedenklich eingestuft, weil Mitarbeiter von Rettungsdiensten oft in die Nähe von kritischen medizinischen Geräten kommen. Demnach störten Tetra-Handys, die von Rettung und Polizei verwendet werden, medizinische Geräte wie Herzschrittmacher, Infusionspumpen oder EKG-Monitore auf eine Entfernung von bis zu drei Metern. Diese Störungen übertreffen teilweise erheblich die Auswirkungen von GSM-Handys. So wurde bei den Infusionspumpen der Alarm ausgelöst und der EKG-Monitor musste vollkommen neu gestartet werden.

Das Bündelfunksystem Tetra sendet im 390 MHz bis 400 MHz-Bereich. Aufgrund der Funk-Charakteristik des Systems lässt sich Tetra weniger leicht stören als GSM-Handys. In Österreich wird zurzeit an der Verwirklichung des bundesweiten Tetra-Netzes Adonis für alle Blaulichtorganisationen gearbeitet. Als Lösung empfiehlt die MDA, dass für Tetra-Handys in Krankenhäusern dieselben Richtlinien gelten wie für GSM-Geräte. Fahrzeuge, die mit Tetra-Funksystemen ausgestattet sind, sollten so weit wie möglich von Intensivstationen entfernt abgestellt werden.
