Morgification

Morgification is something I’ve been thinking about for months. In part, as the involuntary and evil twin of Borgification, and in breadth as a process that derives “morg” from its original word-root as a condition of death. It only so happens that All Hallows Eve is on our doorstep and this haphazard piece turns out to be timely. The inspiration didn’t come from philosophy or religion, but from polymer science; specifically, the activities of the (defunct) Polaroid Corporation and the men who were dipping their probes into the mysteries of organic stereochemistry to make “interesting” plastics. And then there’s the overall driver which is a psychic hologram of scientific tyranny. Pardon my negativity but there’s a problem Houston! We’re losing the Race for Space –and I mean losing control of those engineered aliens ( the “race” for space).   So, I guess what I want to say is: get jiggy with it science guys or get morgued for a comeback as zombie pumpkins.

“Morg”, of course, is taken from Morgellon’s, a name on overdrive, standing in for the range of disorders manifesting as recurrent lesions, extruding fibers, films, crystals, technological objects and insects oozing and tearing out of people’s skin. Prognosis unknown. Morgellon’s suggests these are medical problems. Morgification, I’m suggesting, is conquest.

   No one can yet tell me if it’s killing people because so far what I’ve heard is that ‘morgs’ are killing themselves. I have too little to offer in the face of this tragedy, but recent exposure to advanced cases of morgification support a conviction that the issue needs to be, and must be, defined. It was Edwin (“call me Din”) Land, the founder and genius of Polaroid, who was fond of telling people that a problem defined opened the way to its solution.

The following description and accompanying photos (in the link) fits some of the morg specimens I’ve seen: “In this work, we discovered that.. PVP could self-assemble to form a macroscopic matrix made of a branched hollow polymer nanofibers… The self-assembled fibrous PVP structure formed in the aqueous solution was a jellyfish-like three-dimensional aggregate with a centimeter scale… Based on the..analysis of the early stage during the formation of the jellyfish-like PVP aggregate, the aggregate formation process can be divided into two steps: formation and fusion of PVP microspheres into pearl-necklace-like chains and growth of hollow fibers from the chains… The branched fibers produced in this work may serve as new templates for the synthesis of fibers or tubes of other materials… We discovered that polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) could self-assemble into branched hollow fibers in an aqueous solution after aging the PVP solution for about two weeks. Based on this finding, we demonstrated two approaches by which the self-assembly of PVP into branched hollow fibers could be exploited to template the formation of branched hollow inorganic fibers.” [i.e. silica and gold nanoparticles] http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2844465/

 PVP powder, sold widely as a food additive, binding and thickening agent for foods, adhesives, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, medical devices and blood plasma substitute. Mixed with iodine it’s called povidone, able to make light-polarizing film – it could have been among the many thousands of polymer compounds prepared by Polaroid.

Edwin Land, c1947 

For much of its early existence, Polaroid functioned as a think tank more than a product-wielding corporation. In 1937, Polaroid was officially reorganized  “Under the enthusiastic sponsorship of Jimmy  [James A.] Warburg, [as] a group came together that included W. Averell Harriman, Lewis Strauss and Strauss’s partners at Kuhn Loeb, and several members of Schroder-Rockefeller… and clearly demonstrated what they were investing in by granting Land control of a voting trust of the stock… The board directors [were] Warburg, Harriman, Strauss…” [p55, Land's Polaroid]   Din Land had shown them miracles, including a 3-D movie, which they restaged multiple times for scientists, capitalists, and the press. For the 1939 “World of Tomorrow” Fair in New York, Chrysler presented a 3-D Polaroid film of a car self-assembling as the animated parts danced before the audience. Still, Polaroid had little to sell and fewer customers, but 1940, World War II, new premises near M.I.T. and a flow of contracts from the US Navy changed everything. Near the end of the war, Polaroid took on a team of crack chemists and set out to make the products that Edwin Land had dreamed of.

One of the chemists who signed on to Polaroid in 1943 was Elkan Rogers Blout, newly promoted out of Columbia University with a chemical PhD and accommodated as a research fellow at Harvard Medical School. Blout managed to keep his parallel life going between Polaroid and Harvard –Polaroid gave him wealth and Harvard gave him prestige– until 1962 and the fruition of Polaroid’s great commercial one-trick-pony: the instant color camera. Blout “led the team of chemists that synthesized more than 5,000 compounds in search of the key ingredients of the Polaroid color process.” http://www.hsph.harvard.edu/news/press-releases/2006-releases/press12202006.html By leaving the lab at Polaroid, Blout was to have time to make his mark in medicine. Since 1950, he’d had private lab space at the Children’s Hospital in Boston, sponsored by the Children’s Cancer Research Foundation under Sidney Farber: “Elkan established a spectroscopy laboratory at Children’s..to study biophysics of peptides and proteins… Indicative of his stature in the field of biopolymers, Elkan was a founding editor of the journal Biopolymers…” http://news.harvard.edu/gazette/story/2007/09/elkan-r-blout/  At the top of his Harvard career, Elkan Blout was the Dean of academics at the Harvard School of Public Health, treasurer of the National Academy of Sciences responsible for a five-fold increase in monetary holdings and lastly, in retirement after having won the highest national awards, senior science advisor to the FDA.  But, from his first days at Polaroid during WWII, Blout (who was 24 at the time) had joined in the ‘classified’ culture of military secrets. It may have taught him much about networking and discretion, as doubtlessly as hobnobbing with financiers did with money. Perhaps it suited him as it suited Edwin Land.

When the Korean War kicked into gear and nuclear tests moved to Nevada, Edwin Land joined another small group to study and recommend military development; they called themselves the Beacon Hill group and issued a highly classified report on ideas for aerial reconnaissance and atmospheric monitoring. Land’s fellow in these studies, James R. Killian (pres. of M.I.T), was later to pick him as chair for the special intelligence committee. In 1954, Land and Killian, together, went to Eisenhower with the plan for the U-2 spy plane. It was at Land’s urging and arrangement that Kelly Johnson of Lockheed was brought into the project, and potentially many other contributors as well. “He knew much of the country’s scientific establishment personally. He was a visiting lecturer at M.I.T. and would later persuade Killian to join Polaroid’s board… Land quickly assumed a leading role…  From the first flight on July 4, 1956, to the day Gary Powers was shot down on May 1, 1960, the U-2 changed the course of history… suddenly a hidden world was totally revealed. It quickly became apparent that the bomber gap and the missile gap [promoted as falling behind the Soviets] were misapprehensions… the Western powers had overestimated Soviet strength… Subsequent flights totally revised American and NATO thinking about Russian capabilities.” [pp111-112, Land's Polaroid]

The essential telling of U-2 surveillance and the involvement of Land is in the timing of its early flights a full year before the United States blew off the longest and dirtiest series of nuclear bombs over the heads of its citizens.  The Nevada tests known as Operation Plumbob in the summer and fall of 1957 initiated the period of peak atmospheric fallout that, according to epidemiological data, has never really abated due to the growth of nuclear industries, accidents, re-pollution and bioaccumulation. For some time now, even the public knows that the ‘testing’ excess was militarily unnecessary by any standard.  In the field of synthetic and biopolymers, however, fallout is magic.

All polymers are made of linked units called monomers.
A biopolymer is a polymer found in nature.  Starch, proteins and peptides, and DNA and RNA are all examples of biopolymers, in which the monomer units, respectively, are sugars [polysaccharides], amino acids [polypeptides], and nuceic acids [polynucleotides]. The exact chemical composition and the sequence in which these units are arranged is called the polymer’s primary structure. Many biopolymers spontaneously “fold” into characteristic shapes, which determine their biological functions and depend in a complicated way on their primary structures. Structural biology is the study of the shapes of biopolymers.” http://www.wordiq.com/definition/Biopolymer

“Stereochemistry, a subdiscipline of chemistry, involves the study of the relative spatial arrangement of atoms that form the structure of molecules and their manipulation…also known as 3D chemistry because the prefix “stereo-” means “three-dimensionality”. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stereochemistry
*
The term ‘plastics’ includes materials composed of various elements such as carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, chlorine, and sulfur. Plastics typically have high molecular weight, meaning each molecule can have thousands of atoms bound together… Most plastics are based on the carbon atom. Silicones, which are based on the silicon atom, are an exception. The carbon atom can link to other atoms with up to four chemical bonds .. When we combine monomers, we generate polymers or plastics… The raw material formation may begin by separating the hydrocarbon chemicals from natural gas, petroleum, or coal into pure streams of chemicals. Some are then processed in a “cracking process.” Here, in the presence of a catalyst, raw materials molecules are converted into monomers such as ethylene (ethene) C2H4, propylene (propene) C3H6, and butene C4H8 and others….  Each monomer yields a plastic resin with specific properties and characteristics. Combinations of monomers produce copolymers with further property variations. So, within each polymer type, such as nylons, polyesters, polyethylenes, etc, manufacturers can custom make plastics that have specific features.” http://plastics.americanchemistry.com/How-Plastics-Are-Made
“A single polymer molecule may consist of hundreds to a million monomers and may have a linear, branched, or network structure. Covalent [shared electron] bonds hold the atoms in the polymer molecules together and secondary bonds then hold groups of polymer chains together to form the polymeric material. Copolymers are polymers composed of two or more different types of monomers.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polyvinylpyrrolidone
“Most plastics are dielectrics or insulators…and resist the flow of a current… [but] Not all polymers behave the same when subjected to voltage and plastics can be classified as ‘polar’ or ‘nonpolar’…The polar plastics do not have a fully covalent bond and there is a slight imbalance in the electronic charge of the molecule… This ‘dipole’ will move in the presence of an electric field and attempt to line up with the electric field.” http://www.zeusinc.com/User/Files/Zeusinc/Documents/Zeus_Dielectric.pdf
Molecular self-assembly is mediated by weak, noncovalent bonds –notably hydrogen bonds, ionic bonds (electrostatic interactions), hydrophobic interactions, van der Waals interactions and water-mediated hydrogen bonds. Although these bonds are relatively insignificant in isolation, when combined together as a whole, they govern the structural conformation of..macromolecules…” http://www.che.utexas.edu/research/biomat/PDFReprints/Fabrication%20of%20novel%20biomaterials%20through%20molecular%20SA.pdf

Polymer fabrication techniques often use free radicals: Free radical polymerization is a method..by which a polymer forms by the successive addition of free radical building blocks. Free radicals can be formed via a number of different mechanisms… The relatively nonspecific nature of free radical chemical interactions makes this one of the most versatile forms of polymerization available.. In 2001, 40 billion of the 110 billion pounds of polymers produced in the United States were produced by free radical polymerization.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_radical_polymerization
High-energy ionizing radiation produces free radicals for chemically cross-linking polymers: “..[a] polymer may be crosslinked using..electron beam (or e-beam), gamma, or x-ray. Gamma irradiation is usually most economical at lower doses..and for large, high-density parts…Irradiation creates free radicals which will often chemically react in various ways… The free radicals can recombine forming the crosslinks. The degree of crosslinking depends upon the polymer and radiation dose… Another influence..is oxidation during irradiation. Furthermore, oxidation can continue after irradiation causing changes in properties with time… A competing process, called scissioning occurs when polymers are irradiated. In this case, the polymer chains are broken…” http://sterigenics.com/crosslinking/crosslinking.htm
Plasma polymerization: …”as early as the 1870s ‘polymers’ formed by this process were known, but these polymers were initially thought of as undesirable…It was not until the 1960s that the properties of these polymers where found to be useful… Glow discharge is a technique in polymerization which forms free electrons which gain energy from an electric field, and then lose energy through collisions with neutral molecules in the gas phase. This leads to many chemically reactive species, which then lead to a plasma polymerization reaction… These plasmas are formed by a direct current, alternating current or radio frequency generator.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plasma_polymerization

“This review describes recent developments in the emerging field of biomimetic polymeric biomaterials, which signal to cells via biologically active entities.  …The next topics are then the basic design rules for the creation of biomimetic materials. Here, the major emphasis is on polymers that are assembled in separate building blocks, meaning that the biologically active entity is attached to the polymer in a separate chemical reaction.” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15296963
“Here we report a top-down biomimetic approach…by coating biodegradable polymeric nanoparticles with natural erythrocyte [red blood cell] membranes..for long-circulating [drug or gene] cargo delivery…”  http://www.pnas.org/content/early/2011/06/17/1106634108.abstract

“Cellulose has received much attention as an emerging smart material, named as electro-active paper (EAPap)…”  http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21446438
“Conductive polymers are expected to play an important role in the emerging science of molecular computers…” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Organic_electronics
*
Indeed… polymers are smart materials. If you knew nothing about plastics before reading this, I hope this random selection of quotes does a ‘Polaroid’–  gives you the picture in a minute.
   I have one last addition about the “pyrroles” :
“Polypyrroles are conducting polymers of the rigid-rod..family, all basically derivatives of polyacetylene. Polypyrrole was the first polyacetylene derivative to show high conductivity. In a series of papers in 1963, D.E.Weiss and coworkers reported high conductivity in iodine-doped oxidized polypyrrole… In 2006, scientists from Brown University published work on a fast-charging and discharging battery chemistry based on polypyrroles. There are current studies into the medical applications… Polypyrrole..has been actively studied as a material for ‘artificial muscles’… Polypyrrole is used in the microwave fabrication of multiwalled carbon nanotubes, a new method that allows to obtain CNTs in a matter of seconds.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polypyrrole
….now there’s a real Polaroid moment.

In 1940, equal to Polaroid’s up-and-coming status as a think tank floating on Navy contracts, Edwin Land adopted Robert Burns Woodward as a special science advisor and chief “problem solver” to the company. Woodward was a Boston area native, PhD graduate of MIT, and soon to become the resident wizard of organic chemistry at Harvard. He was “considered by many to be the preeminent organic chemist of the twentieth century… During the..1940s, Woodward synthesized many complex..products including quinine, cholesterol, cortisone, strychnine, lysergic acid, reserpine, chlorophyll, cephalosporin and colchicine. With these, Woodward opened up a new era of synthesis..in which he showed that natural products could be synthesized by careful applications of the principles of physical organic chemistry, and by meticulous plannng…  it was thought by some..that it would be impossible to create these substances in the lab… Woodward was a pioneer in showing how, with exhaustive and rational planning, one could conduct reactions that were stereoselective. Many..syntheses involved forcing a molecule into a certain configuration by installing rigid structural elements in it, [a] tactic that has become standard today.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R._B._Woodward
   “In 1944, Land brought together two brilliant young chemists who had worked for Polaroid… Woodward..now twenty-seven..[and]..William E. Doering..[who] was twenty-six. Land provided them with a Polaroid laboratory and assistants, his own insistent energy and ideas, and a challenge to solve the classical problem… Synthetic quinine…” [p76, Land's Polaroid] It was through Woodward, who had also been serving the War Production Board, that Elkan Blout came to Polaroid too. Woodward was to stay in the family –in 1946 he divorced his first wife and married Eudoxia ‘Doxie’ Muller, one of Polaroid’s first hires, described as a “humorous, cynical, blonde sprite” who was recruited to learn science on-the-job. “Doxie had been assigned by Land to begin the first chemical experiments on his instant photography project, given the code name SX-70, under Land’s daily guidance.” [p9, ibid.]
   Woodward’s “new era” in chemistry was to bear his name. “In the early 1950s, Woodward, along with the British chemist Geoffrey Wilkinson then at Harvard, postulated a novel structure for ferrocene, a compound consisting of a combination of an organic molecule with iron. This marked the beginning of the field of transition metal organometallic chemistry…  In the early 1960s, Woodward began work on what was the most complex natural product synthesized to date– vitamin B12… The synthesis included almost a hundred steps…  This [work] convinced organic chemists that the synthesis of any complex substance was possible given enough time and planning.” [wiki, above]
   Blout wrote of his friend, “Theoretically, interesting molecules always intrigued Woodward… He concluded that electronic effects had to be at work…” http://www.nap.edu/html/biomems/rwoodward

Interesting…
“Recently the mixtures of collagen with synthetic polymers..are becoming more and more interesting for scientists and technologists… Since collagen alone does not show interesting enough mechanical properties, the idea to develop collagen based composite materials by adding a selected synthetic polymer is interesting. Polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) is an interesting water-soluble synthetic… used for..plasmas (substitute of blood plasma), for hydrogel production by radiation methods and..hydrophilic gels…  Collagen and polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP)..are also well known for their interesting biological properties. The blending of collagen with PVP makes it possible to obtain new materials in which strong interactions between the synthetic and biological components occur.”  http://www.chalcogen.infim.ro/1793_%20Dumitrascu.pdf

“Vascular tube formation and angiogenesis induced by polyvinylpyrrolidone-coated silver nanoparticles” [abstract title] www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0378427411012513
   Angiogenesis, the growth of new blood vessels, was a term first coined in 1900 but made-over in 1960s medical literature as a feature of cancer by the effort of a Boston [Children's Hospital/Harvard] colleague, Moses Judah Folkman. Dr. “Folkman is widely known as a pioneer in the sudy of angiogenesis… Today [2008] there are more than 1,000 laboratories worldwide engaged in the study of angiogenesis, the field he founded.” In measurable practical value, however, Folkman may be better known for creating plasticized implants, including an early pacemaker: “While doing blood research for the Navy [Bethesda], Folkman had noticed that plastic tubing will gradually leak oil-based fluids… That led to a new drug-delivery system– implantable plastic capsules..[and] directly to the development of Norplant, the long-term contraceptive… Folkman gave the original patent..to the Population Council.”  http://news.harvard.edu/gazette/story/2008/01/m-judah-folkman-biomedical-pioneer-dies-at-74
…”Judah Folkman has taken us enormously close to converting cancer into a manageable chronic disease…” http://www.chillibreeze.com/articles_various/Dr.Folkman.asp
   Without digressing here on the utility of cancer, this last comment fairly captures my perception of the goals of establishment medicine and brings up another haunting concept I’ve been thinking about as a result of this research: autoincarceration –for now, one to keep rolling. There are endless interesting citations about PVP.
   Polyvinylpyrrolidone was first made in a BASF laboratory, the company that advertizes “We don’t just create chemicals, we create chemistry” : “Polyvinylpyrrolidone is a genuine ‘multi-talent’ among BASF products because polyvinylpyrrolidones are good at (almost) everything… It all began around the end of 1938..in Ludwigshafen. Walter Reppe, the inventor of acetylene chemistry, used acetylene and pyrrolidone to produce a new monomer called vinylpyrrolidone… PVP started its career as a substitute for blood plasma in the Second World War. Known as Periston, it saved the lives of thousands of people… Half of the polyvinylpyrrolidones produced by BASF are destined for the pharmaceutical sector…  Today, BASF is the biggest producer of PVP in Europe –and an end to this success story is nowhere in sight.” http://www.basf.com/group/corporate/en/literature-document:/Brand+Luvitec-Brochure–PVP+and+more+Versatile+specialty+polymers+for+technical+applications-English.pdf

Naturally existing pyrroles, incidently, come from tobacco, and as part of its intriguing history as the first confirmed isolation of  any virus (published 1892), Tobacco Mosaic Virus (TMV) turns out to “exhibit fascinating structural features… TMV-based materials have already shown great potential in nanoelectronics.” http://www.ee.sc.edu/research/NESL/NESL_pub_pdf/NanoLett_7_3729.pdf
–now, I can only speculate what kind of story Big Tobacco might have to contribute here. Tobacco keeps coming up in my radiation biology studies; as a source of desirable chemicals such as nicotinic acid and pyrrole, as a crop target of early “radium fertilizer” and as a factor in the cancer of Henrietta Lacks, whose tumor cells were designated the immortal HeLa line in 1951 (beginning of US domestic atomic fallout), then to become the most ubiquitous of laboratory creatures (i.e., the basis of polio vaccines) –and now this too, ready nanoelectronics.
   Americans should know from history that the burgeoning economy of the Atlantic colonies was built on the slave labor of tobacco plantations. By the 1700s, excluding J.J. Astor, great fortunes were in tobacco, exemplified by Pierre Lorillard: “Lorillard is the oldest tobacco company in the world.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pierre_Abraham_Lorillard; In 1968, Lorillard was acquired by Loews Corporation, controlled by the Tisch family.

BASF, creator of the chemistry, was the 1925 founding corporation of I.G. Farbenunder the leadership of Carl Bosch…all shares were exchanged for BASF shares prior to the merger. Rubber, fuels and coatings were added to the product range“. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BASF

In 1927, prior to the Wall Street Crash and the construction of Rockefeller Center,  Standard Oil and I.G. Farben formalized a joint partnnership that created the world’s largest chemical consortium. Howard Ambruster published a critical work in 1947 on the interwar history of the Standard-Farben venture: “Treason’s Peace, German Dyes and American Dupes”.  Ambruster wrote, “..it is and must be recognized as a cabalistic organization which..operates a far-flung and highly efficient espionnage machine –the ultimate purpose being world conquest and a world super-state directed by Farben.”  www.archive.org/stream/treasonspeaceger00ambrrich/…” http://polioforever.wordpress.com/the-rockefeller-institute/

“Under the direction of Walter Reppe (1892 – 1969, chemist and member of the  Board of Executive Directors from 1952 to 1957), research begins in 1928 on the catalytic reactions of acetylene under pressure… Carl Bosch and Friedrich Bergius receive the Nobel Prize for the development of  high-pressure technology for ammonia synthesis and coal hydrogenation…Researchers in Ludwigshafen develop a groundbreaking new invention – magnetic  tape…  Ten years of intensive research into synthetic rubber culminate in success… A patent is filed in 1939 for one of the most interesting  derivatves of acetylene chemistry: polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP)… Times of war, 1940…The first 20 tons of caprolactam-based polyamide are produced in  Ludwigshafen. This opens up new ways of manufacturing fibers (nylon and Perlon)  and engineering plastics… ” http://www.basf.com/group/corporate/en/about-basf/history/1925-1944/index

“I.G. Farben had a holding company in the United States… Paul M. Warburg, first director of the Federal  Reserve Bank of New York and chairman of the Bank of Manhattan, was a Farben director and in Germany his brother Max Warburg was also a director of I.G,  Farben. H. A. Metz of I.G. Farben was also a director of the Warburg’s Bank of  Manhattan. Finally, Carl Bosch of American I.G. Farben was also a director of  Ford Motor Company A-G in Germany… Another elusive case of reported financing to Hitler is that of Fritz Thyssen, the German steel magnate…[whose]..personal banking operation was affiliated with W.A. Harriman interests in New York..” http://reformed-theology.org/html/books/wall_street/chapter_07.htm  “Virtually all members of the German Warburg family fled to the United States or Great Britain by 1938.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warburg_family  “The I.G.Farben cartel was created by loans from Wall Street in what has been called the Dawes Plan. Carroll Quigley calls the Dawes Plan ‘largely a J.P. Morgan production.’ The J.P. Morgan Group set up the loan to I.G. Farben, which created Hitler… Do you see what happened? A Rothschild agent [Morgan & Co.] set up a cartel that was directly involved in the horrible persecution of the Jews. Still the family maintains the illusion of being totally supportive of their race.

The US Government’s sample of PVP came to the military in 1943 as captured German medical supplies: “At the 28 July 1943 [Subcommittee on Blood Substitutes] Conference..a bottle of Periston [polyvinylpyrrolidone]..that had been captured in Tunisia..was exhibited and arrangements were made for various studies to be conducted on it… [T]oxicity experiments revealed gross pathologic changes in the spleen..described as the type to be expected in severe bone marrow damage… Autopsy also revealed changes in the liver that were apparently progressive…” http://history.amedd.army.mil/booksdocs/wwii/blood/chapter14.htm  Despite this, blood substitute science was unable to find suitable materials and Periston was bypassed because of adequate supplies of donated blood from the Red Cross program. The military dropped its inquiry at the end of the war, but in 1950 the Korean War revived their interest: “Periston was..[next] considered in the Subcommittee on Shock on 14 October 1950. Although it had been widely used in Germany during WWII and about half a million cases had since been followed up, not much was known… Apparently it caused no lasting damage to the tissues… At the 11 December..meeting..it was learned that the Schenley [Distillers] Corp. could then import 5,000 to 10,000 bottles of Periston a month from Germany and by July 1951 expected to import an intermediate form that could be processed further in the United States… A research project had been approved in principle… The Food and Drug Administration was prepared to clear Periston…” http://history.amedd.army.mil/booksdocs/wwii/blood/chapter20.htm [pp788-790] So Schenley Corp. became the government’s PVP contractor until late 1953 when Periston was dropped again in favor of another blood substitute called dextran –also provided by Schenley.

“Schenley had been owned by one Danny Weiskopf, formerly the right-hand man of Julius Kessler, the whiskey king of pre-Prohibition America. Weiskopf had sold out to Lew Rosenstiel..[who] managed to build up considerable stocks of ‘prescription whiskey’..[p95, The Bronfmans]… Before Repeal Rosenstiel had acquired..the important firm of Schenley with the help of..the totally respectable banking firm of Lehman Brothers… Rosenstiel was a true monster… He was a workaholic, needing only two hours of sleep, working seven days a week, impetuous.. a control freak who treated his employees like dirt, sacking them at a moment’s notice..[expecting] them to compromise themselves by talking in his absence, unaware that he had installed bugging devices in his offices… Rosenstiel was married four times and was bisexual…revealed from evidence given in a bitter divorce suit..by his fourth wife. If, as is possible, her evidence is true, it guarantees him a place in history as organizer of the parties at which J. Edgar Hoover could frolic in his favorite frocks, parties that featured boy prostitutes for the enjoyment of..guests like Roy Cohn. According to the fourth Mrs. Rosenstiel, at one party she attended Hoover ‘was wearing a fluffy black dress..with..lace stockings and high heels..makeup..and false eyelashes.’ Indeed it was the blackmail potential of the conversations recorded on the microphones Rosenstiel had thoughtfully installed throughout the house that allegedly explained Hoover’s refusal to pursue the Mafia. For it was at Lew’s place that Hoover met some of Rosenstiel’s business associates..like Frank Costello, Sam Giancana…Santo Trafficante..Angelo Bruno..and Meyer Lansky…” [p66, The Bronfmans, by Nicholas Faith] Sam Bronfman bought a 20% stake in Schenley. “Mr. Sam..–and above all Edgar– had been introduced to what would now be called ‘insider’ stock market dealings by the Loebs and the Gunzbergs… In France the Gunzberg connection with the Rothschilds enabled the Bronfmans to get in on the ground floor of..the innovative holiday group Club Mediterranee. In the United States the investments included a highly successful speculation into Polaroid..” [p175, ibid.]

This story, as you might surmise, has more places to go than tunneling nanotubes, and at some point I just have to leave-off and mention that the early medical research on PVP by the government was mixed at best. They sanctioned ‘emergency use’ of PVP blood substitute and called for more study. The only moderately favorable clinical trial done in 1950 was submitted by Dr. Robert M. Zollinger of Ohio State U, the beloved mentor of Judah Folkman who got him into Harvard Medial School. Polaroid eventually filed a number of PVP-containing patents, some of which appear near the end of Edwin Land’s life in 1983. “Paradoxically, a man who spent much of his life developing devices and systems for recording history didn’t leave much of his own. He didn’t keep a journal and his personal papers were destroyed upon death.” http://www.2think.org/land.shtml

PVP in RESidence
Polyvinylpyrrolidone stores in the reticulo-endothelial system (RES), currently called the mononuclear phagocyte system (MPS), “part of the immune system that consists of the phagocytic cells located in reticular connective tissue. The cells..accumulate in lymph nodes and the spleen. The Kupffer cells of the liver and tissue histiocytes are..part of the MPS… The mononuclear phagocyte system is part of both humoral and cell-mediated immunity..[with] an important role in defense against microorganisms… [In] the liver, Kupffer cells store excess iron [coming] from the breakdown of red blood cells. In bone marrow and spleen, iron is stored in RES cells mostly as ferritin… The functions of the MPS..[are] formation of Red and White blood cells [RBCs and WBCs], destruction of old RBCs and WBCs, formation of antibody, formation of plasma proteins, formation of bile pigments [and] storage of iron.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reticuloendothelial_system
“When administered in very large amounts or over long periods (either as a plasma replacement or as a dryg carrier) deposits identified as PVP have been found in RES cells of various organs and in the lung, kidney and intestines… For example, PVP storage was apparent in 28 of 29 autopsies of patients who received PVP..by intravenous injection over 2-81 days at total doses of 4 g[grams]. Microscopic examination revealed slight structural changes… Slight adverse effects to the function of lungs, kidneys, liver and intestines..have been described… Other reports have also noted..granulomatous or inflammatory reactions in association with PVP deposits in..the liver and lymph nodes… PVP deposits in a wide range of tissues..when examined up to 15 years later…”[noted here also at 20 years] http://tobaccodocuments.org/pm/2057958898-8907.html

The Moscow Signal

 photo 1959

The Moscow Signal was the name given by intelligence insiders to the low-power microwave beams claimed to have been broadcast into the US embassy for more than two decades, from 1953 until 1976. No members of the public were to hear of it until 1976, not even the staff of the US embassy in Moscow. Journalist Paul Brodeur, longtime writer for The New Yorker, recounted the events in his 1977 book The Zapping of America: “According to the first report of the affair, which appeared in the Los Angeles Times on February 7 [1976], Ambassador Walter J. Stoessel Jr had told some of the 125 members of his staff that the Russians were using microwave beams to listen in on conversations inside the embassy, and that such radiation could be harmful to their health…”[p95]

As it happens, the signal went undiscovered until 1962 when a security sweep for listening devices revealed the presence of an unusual pulsed series of microwaves. The Department of Defense had only recently terminated its Tri-Service Program, a microwave studies “health and safety” evaluation operated from 1957 to 1961, for reasons that Brodeur makes clear. What followed in the wake of the Moscow Signal discovery was a rapid withdrawal of related, defense-funded radio/radar research among independent non-military contractors. In 1966, the government classified its continuing effort as Project Pandora, a three year investigation that maintained complete official silence until the story of the Moscow Signal broke in the papers –most of Pandora’s experiments, it seems, have never been declassified.

   The focus of Brodeur’s whistleblowing in Zapping was the power density exposure, arbitrarily set and voluntarily adopted at the limit of ten-milliwatts per centimeter squared (10mW/cm2). The Russians, he states, set their upper limit 1,000 times lower, measured in microwatts. Even one milliwatt was a figure much too high for Russian workplace safety . During the mid-60s period of contentious debate among knowing Americans, a one-milliwatt (1mW/cm2) limit had been suggested by the deputy director of the Bureau of Radiological Health (Robert L. Elder) who then reversed himself to defend a five-milliwatt limit for industry. Not without irony, the Moscow Signal was said to be at four-milliwatts per square centimeter.
*
In Chapter 3 (The Cover-up Begins), Brodeur wrote,”By the late 1950s, virtually all the investigations into the biological effects of microwaves were being either conducted or financed by the Department of Defense, which had assigned the Air Force the responsibility of developing a program of coordinated research in the three [armed] branches…known as the Tri-Service Program…Therefore the task..was validating the ten-milliwatt level that had already been adopted..as a theoretically safe level of continuous whole-body exposure to microwaves…[p32]…As for nonthernal, or low-level, effects upon human beings..it was virtually ignored during the Tri-Service Program. On..occasion..it was treated as a joke…[p33] One was a study..at the Naval Medical Research Institute [that] reported..testicular damage resulting in temporary sterility..in test animals exposed to power densities of only five milliwatts per square centimeter. Another was an animal study by Russell L. Carpenter..whose findings not only suggested that pulsed microwaves, such as those used in radar, might have a nonthermal effect in producing cataracts, but also..that cataracts might occur through the cumulative effect of repeated exposures to low-level microwave[s].

   “By the time of the fourth and final Tri-Service conference which was held in New York in August 1960, it was apparent that the military-industrial complex had developed almost complete immunity to any information that might place the ten milliwatt level in question. By then, it was known that the power of microwave-radiating equipment, which had risen within the previous twenty years from average outputs of ten watts to almost a million watts, would soon be increased to meet the demands of the space age.”[p34]
   Wow –before World War II was over, the electrical output of radar zoomed from ten watts to a million. Then, along came the microwave ovens, source of the contentious and equally arbitrary 5mW/cm2 limit. One of Paul Brodeur’s driving points was that leakage from electronics –radar and broadcast anntennas to home appliances– was commonplace and in excess of the too-high recommedations anyway.
   “Over the next few years [after 1962]..it became apparent that the Russians had based their standard primariliy on the effects of low-level microwave radiation on the central nervous system, which they had observed in the course of many large-scale, long-term clinical investigations of workers… [It] turned out that the Russians had recognized unusual effects of radio-frequency energy on the human central nervous system as early as 1933 and had been studying the problem ever since. [p35]
*
…”Concerning the genetic effects of microwaves…[they were] first discovered [by an American] back in 1959 by Dr. John H. Heller and some associates..who observed gross chromosomal abnormalities in garlic root tips..irradiated with microwaves at power levels far below those necessary to produce heat. By 1963, Heller and his colleagues had demonstrated that low-power microwave radiation could produce in mammalian cells and insects mutations similar to those caused by gamma rays, X-rays and ultraviolet rays. Ironically, when the findings of Heller [et.al]..were published, they received more recognition in the Soviet Union than in the United States...[p90]
*
   “At first, it was believed [the embassy discovery]..had something to do with normal eavesdropping operations…[but it] was soon realized, however, that the Russians were using multiple frequencies and widely fluctuating microwave beams with irregular patterns which did not appear to be applicable to intelligence gathering… [The] motive for the Soviet microwave bombardment..became the subject of intense scrutiny by..intelligence agencies, including the CIA whose officials had become belatedly aware of the vast amount of research that the Russians had conducted..on human behavior…  In the autumn of 1965, the Institute for Defense Analyses..convened a special task force to assess the problem and..duplicate some of the Russian experiments… In addition, the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA)..set up a special laboratory at the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research where..rhesus monkeys were irradiated..at power densities..similar to the Moscow Signal. [p41]
   By May of 1976, as new rounds of disclosure made their way to print, “an Associated Press report by Barton Reppert quoted Richard S. Cesaro, who was in charge of Project Pandora, as conceding that some of the scientists connected with the study felt that low-intensity microwave radiation had produced signs of aberrant behavior in monkeys. [p101]…another Associated Press story by Reppert stated that recent tests..showed radiation levels in the Moscow embassy to be considerably higher than..earlier tests…and that an outside telephone line had actually been found to be carrying radiation directly into the office (and, presumably into the ear) of Ambassador Stoessel…[who]was ‘beside himself’ with this latest development…” [p103]
   “Two weeks later, the..indefatigable Reppert..revealed that over an eighteen-month period in 1967 and 1968 the State Department had conducted special tests to detect genetic damage in employees returning from Moscow, and..done so without notifying the employees about the purpose of the testing but had deliberately misled them into thinking..the tests were..for another reason… Dr. Cecil B. Jacobson, of the George Washington University Medical School..described the tests..as showing ‘funny results– lots of chromosome breaks.’ [p104]…[Dr. Thomas H. Gresinger]..recalled..[that] the technicians..had been instructed to take buccal smears from the Moscow employees as part of their routine homecoming physical examinations and to tell them that they were being checked for..bacteria. When I heard the words ‘buccal smears’, my ears picked up. Buccal smears are never used to culture bacteria; they’re a scraping taken from inside the mouth and they’re designed solely for the purpose of detecting chromosomal abnormalities.’”[p105]
*
   Fourteen documents from Project Pandora were released to Barton Reppert through a Freedom of Information request: “The remaining documents in the declassifeid Pandora file pertain mostly to meetings held in 1968 and 1969..[p118] ..”The April..meeting ended with the science advisory committee’s emphasizing ‘the need for information on humans in addition to the accelerated animal studies at Walter Reed.’ The committee urged ‘the Walter Reed facility to develop a human program…six to eight months and that they could be obtained from Ft. Dietrich [sic]… On May 12..the committee..met at the Institute of Defense Analysis to discuss just how to design and conduct the human studies. Among other things, they agreed that the strength of the signal used in the studies should be between four and five milliwatts per square centimeter…’[p119]…on June 18…the science advisory committee..reached the following conclusions about the human studies: ‘It was the concensus that the aim should be to duplicate or simulate the Moscow environment..over an eight-to-ten hour period’… Cesaro went on to tell the committee that there was evidence that low-level radiation could penetrate the central nervous system of monkeys..[and] who went on to say that the effects could be physiological, behavioral and genetic. As things turned out, the..clear direction for future research that was recommended..in the spring of 1969 soon became clouded with uncertainty. Indeed, during the next few months, a mysteriuos change of heart and mind seems to have taken place in..Project Pandora…[p120]
   …[H]uman studies..after all, threatened to produce some embarassing data. [p121]…Project Pandora came to a rather abrupt end on January 12, 1970 after a final meeting… As for the planned human experiments, the committee decided that ‘based on existing information, there is no evidence that any permanent deleterious effects are to be expected.‘” [p124]
*
   In amongst the noise of the 1977 newspaper accounts was the quietly circulated notice that “..sources within the [State] department admitted privately that excessive radiation was emanating from the telephone of former Ambassador Stoessel. It was caused by a high-frequency one-thousand watt radio transmitter located on the roof of the embassy above Stoessel’s office. When this transmitter was operating, it induced high-frequency signals in the tens of milliwatts in phone lines running to the Ambassador’s desk, as well as in phone lines..to other offices in the embassy’s political section. Another State Department source..[claimed] that the..transmitter was never turned on…” [pp125-126] The State Department, Brodeur says, had no authority over the embassy’s transmitter, nor could they know or reveal any details about the equipment. It was classified. And so, the Moscow Signal ends as a sort of cliffhanger with the spooky insinuation that the  Americans in Moscow were irradiated by their own. Brodeur wrote, “conveniently..all of the blame for the irradiation of the embassy upon the Russians. However, there are..reasons for supposing that [the reports] may not be trueWhatever the legal resolutions,..since the Pandora meetings, the government and the military have systematically suppressed information about the genetic effects of microwaves in human beings…” [p134]

NOTE: current “safe” exposure is set by W.H.O. at 1 mW/cm2 (one milliwatt per square centimeter)
*
                  H.P. Schwan             Boris Rajewsky
   The original 10 mW/cm2 was adopted in 1955 following the recommendation of Herman P. Schwan , a “Paper Clip” biophysicist who had also worked for Siemens and Telefunken, recruited by the Navy in 1945 from the occupied Kaiser Wilhelm Institute in Frankfurt.
>>>”Frankfurt-am-Main was designated as headquarters for the United States Navy for the occupation of Germany” [ref. p120, www.history.navy.mil/library/online/constructfrancegermanyww2.htm
   Schwan's NIH obituary (b.1915-d.2005): "..His letter to the U.S. Navy in 1953 propos[ed] a safe limit for human exposure to microwave energy of 100 W/m2 [100 Watts per square meter, or converted by the formula  1 W/m2=0.1mW/cm2 ---a recommendation of 10 milliwatts per square centimeter]
Here’s a piece of Herman Schwan’s story:
Schwan: …”In March 1944 we experienced..[a] series of bombings that essentially wiped out Frankfurt. The damage was very very heavy… Curiously enough my apartment house did not suffer. I rented near I.G.Farben administrative headquarters… It was completely preserved.”
Q: “You’re saying the Allied forces purposely avoided bombing that?
Schwan: “Yes. Absolutely. It was clear… [Later, in the US] An executive with DuPont and General Motors offered me [an] interpretation… I was dating a friend of his daughter,[so] he invited me to [his] estate and offered to help me. He also invited the president of Sperry Gyroscope..to get me a job with Sperry. He told me that I.G. Farben and DuPont were heavily intertwined… DuPont owned fifty-one percent of the stock of I.G.Farben, and vice versa. He said to me, ‘We never had any intention to ruin our own headquarters in Germany. That’s our stuff.’ ..So, I don’t know. Anyhow, I didn’t suffer much..[but] just two blocks away there was unbelievable damage.
>>>In 1945 to 1947, the I.G.Farben building was the Supreme Headquarters for Allies Europe: the Frankfurt I.G. Farben building “was the largest office building in Europe…housing the U.S. High Commissioner for Germany (HICOG)…[and]was also the headquarters of the CIA in Germany.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IG_Farben_Building
Q: “Was it possible to continue doing research…?
Schwan: “Our work suffered [toward the end of the war. After the Allied invasion]..I stayed at the institute a while..it was occupied by American soldiers…[Director, Boris] Rajewsky was gone so I had to take care of the institute… I rapidly received active support from the [US] military government. That proved to be important later… I succeeded in getting protection for the institute…
Q: “How did things go after that?
Schwan: “The university started functioning a year later… Rajewsky returned. He used his influence to introduce me to..some important heads of some banks in Frankfurt. He appointed me acting Director..since he was a [Nazi] Party Member, he could not act as..Director until..cleared… During that time, I received many visits from..scientists and technicians..[who] were primarily American, but also some British… they were very concerned about what was going on [at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Biophysics]..since [it] was known for its..expertise in ionizing radiation fields…
Q: “It had been targeted because it was thought that it was a part of an atom bomb project?
Schwan: “Yes. I believe so… Rajewsky got major equipment installed. For example..a huge accelerator in a rather tall, new structure in Frankfurt….They [the Allies] must have noticed..and knew what expertise was there… Clearly that building was marked. It was hit and destroyed… I offered the Allies information about the high-frequency work, and the [submarine anti-radar material].
Q: “You wanted to cooperate fully?
Schwan: “Oh absolutely. Yes, I had been waiting for the Americans for a long time now… The anti-Nazis, of course, fully cooperated… As time advanced, other people came with biophysical backgrounds. For example, a lieutenant in the Navy, David Goldman..visited several times, and I talked with him. Some months later, perhaps as a consequence of those visits, I was offered the opportunity to come to [the US] under unusually favorable circumstances… so I accepted. That was in ’47. I came in late August..to the Naval Medical [Aeromedical] Equipment Laboratory in Philadelphia… Then to my surprise, several good things happened…The Navy informed me they would like me to work on some projects only part of the time..[and] I would have the privilege of..projects of my choice… I proposed to start a sweeping study of electric and acoustic properties of biological materials..[hoping] to extend the range of frequencies to much higher and much lower frequencies than ever used before… they promised me the opportunity to set up a long-range research program…. Well, I mentioned the Americans made me an offer with almost unbelievably favorable circumstances… As it turned out, I could practically write my own ticket…  The majority..who came over under the so-called ‘Paper Clip Program’ were military scientists…most were technically oriented. So, the more basic scientists like myself were in a minority… I was [technically] on leave from the University of Frankfurt as a faculty member from 1947 to 1955″
Schwan’s oral history http://www.ieeeghn.org/wiki/index.php/Oral-History:Herman_Schwan_%281992%29
*
   The value of ‘gleaning’ from Schwan’s career work and recollections has a lot to offer in context; a couple of decades before WWII, another Goldman was facilitating high-energy pioneers –banker Henry Goldman, of Goldman Sachs, who was paying the physicist pair of friends, Max Born and Albert Einstein, out-of-pocket on his visits to Germany. Schwan was trained by Russians in Frankfurt– Boris Rajewsky having ultimately attained the directorship of the Biophysics Institute through a form of placement initiated by his communist friends, Alexander Janitsky and the Joliot-Curies in Paris. The Nazis imprisoned Rajewsky’s predecessor and promoted Rajewsky in his place –go figure– and Rajewsky then enfolded the institute into the Kaiser Wilhelm (KWG) network.
   By the time Schwan wrote his microwave dosage recommendations in 1953 for the US Navy, the government had coincidently sanctioned “secret human experimentation” through the Secretary of Defense, Charles E. Wilson [the 'Wilson Memorandum'], CEO of General Electric. Nelson Rockefeller had just become acting Secretary of Health [HEW], the weapons were going thermonuclear,  and it was in this milieu that the Moscow Signal ostensibly  began –unquestionably when it was most in the ideological interest of Americans to study biological effects.
   Schwan said for himself, “When I was first approached about biophysics, I thought that you couldn’t mix physics with biological material. As I became aware of what was happening in electrophysiology and the ionizing radiation field, my ideas changed. I began to believe that we were now at the threshold of more to come… I wanted to do physics of biological objects. This seemed revolutionary to me. In other words, I was not..motivated to study effects of x-rays… I was not interested..in questions raised by medical people or biologists. I wanted to look.. with a physicist’s eye…  Some of my early colleagues at the medical school at Pennsylvania claimed it to be heresy.”

It is well known that electromagnetic fields cause mechanical forces. If one applies an electrical field to a suspension of microscopic particles [i.e. metal colloids, metallorganic compounds, biological cell contents], these particles realign themselves along the direction of the field and form pearl-chain-like aggregates. These chains are mostly single stranded but they are frequently multistranded. This phenomenon has been investigated by a number of groups. Here we discuss the dependence of threshold field strength on particle size and frequency. Also, pulsed fields have been thought to be more effective than continuous fields of the same average power in evoking biological effects.” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1435134/
   “Molecular rotation occurs in materials containing polar molecules having an electrical dipole moment, with the consequence that they will align themselves in an electromagnetic field. If the field is oscillating, as it is in an electromagnetic wave or in a rapidly-oscillating electric field, these molecules rotate continuously aligning with it. This is called dipole rotation. As the field alternates, the molecules reverse direction. Rotating molecules push, pull, and collide with other molecules…” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dielectric_heating
   “Dielectrophoresis (or DEP) is a phenomenon in which a force is exerted on a dielectric particle when it is subjected to a non-uniform electric field… ”  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dielectrophoresis; Dielectric materials are those which polarize in the presence of an electric field.
“…fields of a particular frequency can manipulate particles with great selectivity. This has allowed, for example, the separation of cells or the orientation and manipulation of nanoparticles…  Although the phenomenon we now call dielectrophoresis was described in passing as far back as the early 20th century, it was only subject to serious study, named and first understood by Herbert Pohl in the 1950s…   biological cells have dielectric properties…”

 In Greek myth, Pandora was the “first woman”, made and sent by the gods to the brother of Prometheus, creator of mankind. Prometheus and his brothers were the Titans of legend, punished for rebelling and endowing humans with knowledge and technology. The infamous Box, held in safekeeping by Epimetheus, contained all the undesired and unused commodities available on earth –plague, pestilence, vanity, greed, etc.  It was Epimetheus’s beguiling and curious new companion who freed them from their jar, all except Hope which remained; the last undesirable left sequestered by the ancients.

   Appreciation for Promethean tales goes a long way in describing the interaction of modern titans and weapons systems, both physical and psychological. It was the Rockefellers, after all, who centered their first premier building project around “Radio City” and erected a golden Prometheus to rule over it.
                                                       
*
   At the end of Pandora’s operational years, a symposium was held in Richmond VA at the Virginia Medical College, an institution largely owing its existence to Robert E. Lee’s chief surgeon, Simon Baruch, father of the financier Bernard Baruch.  The September 1969 meeting “marked a long overdue turning point in the general attitutde of American scientists” according to Paul Brodeur –the ‘turning point’ resulting in a general call for research and funding– but it was also an enduring demarcation of “battle lines”.  A notable quote in Zapping states, “At the Richmond symposium, Dr. [Lawrence] Sher objected strongly to the use of the term ‘flaccid paralysis’ to describe the limp and unmoving condition of rats that had been exposed to four and six-tenths [4.6] milliwatts per square centimeter” [p121] Lawrence Sher was a Project Pandora advisory member and ‘flaccid paralysis’ had already been assigned as a new designation for polio. (It’s still the same today ; associated with encephalitis, meningitis, West Nile, “a severe asymmetric process affecting anterior horn cells and/or their axons” http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/mm5137a1.htm) Battle lines had everything to do with preserving tenuous victories. Not even Paul Brodeur ventured beyond the designated language.

                                                          Egyptian auditorium, Richmond, built 1845
            Baruch Auditorium: “The building has been compared to the Temple of Horus at Edfu…  At Founders’ Day exercises held at the Egyptian Building, 5 December 1940, historian Dr. Wyndham Blanton commented to alumni and guests:”What old Nassau Hall is to Princeton, what the Wren Building is to William and Mary, what the Rotunda is to the University of Virginia, the Egyptian Building is to the Medical College of Virginia. It is a shrine, a sanctuary of tradition, the physical embodiment of our genius. It is a spiritual heritage.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egyptian_Building

…And so, the Richmond symposium can join the roster of services as another high mass in the temples of science, which symbolically precludes a military conquest.  http://jenniferlake.wordpress.com/2011/10/15/temples-of-science/ Incidently, Admiral Lewis Strauss (formerly of Kuhn Loeb &Co) and chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission was a major fundraiser for the Medical College of Virginia, as well as a board trustee.
*
   Had Paul Brodeur made the essential connection for his readers that flaccid paralysis was polioby another name, the public might have paid better attention to his arguments and learned that polio is a radiation disease. Possibly he didn’t know it himself, but the familiar and near-recent campaign of the Salk vaccine, funded by the March of Dimes, that had repurposed its mission to birth defects, was foreshadowing the shape of things to come.

   He wrote, “Anxiety about the genetic effects of microwaves first came out into the open in December 1971, when the Electromagnetic Radiation Management Advisory Council..warned that ‘the consequences of undervaluing or misjudging the biological effects..could become a critical problem for the public health, especially if genetic effects are involved.’” [p132] The Council “knew from data presented at the Richmond symposium of 1969 that microwave radiation had induced chromosomal abnormalities in kangaroo-rat cell cultures, and that the researchers who conducted these studies had found that ‘the types of chromosome aberrations observed..are the same as those induced by ionizing radiation in other organisms including humans.’ At least one of its members [Herbert Pollack] knew about the secret tests for genetic damge that the State Department had been running on its Moscow employees. As for the genetic problem, the official minutes of the Project Pandora meeting of April 21, 1969 are revealing. For one thing, they clearly show that..DARPA was aware of the implications of the five-year-old findings of Dr. [Abraham] Lilienfeld –that ’18 out of 25 mongoloid children had fathers who had been exposed to radar’…it is the following paragraph, from the minutes of the April 1969 meeting, which consitutes the ‘smoking gun’ of the State Department’s genetic cover-up: ‘Dr. Pollack reported the studies of Dr. Jacobson at George Washington University who has studied young women returning from [the] embassy in Moscow… [of]One hundred and forty blood samples..examined over a four-year period…Four of them reportedly showed serious chromosomal abnormalities.’ “ [p133]
   The women victims of the Moscow Signal were having their blood taken by Dr. Cecil Bryan Jacobson, a reproductive geneticist who later opened an infertility clinic in Vienna Virginia. Pandora’s Dr. Jacobson ascended to national infamy in 1992 when he was convicted of 52 charges of mail fraud, wire fraud and perjury, conducted through his business.
*
                                                           Dr. Jacobson
Most people will remember Jacobson for claiming to have fathered 75 children among his clinical patients. “Blood work” was obviously not his specialty, and all we can really know about the Project is that it didn’t end in 1969.
   “Dr. Jacobson..used hormone injections to create symptoms resembling pregnancy. With many patients he pointed out an insignificant image on a sonogram and told the patient that it was the image of a fetus. When he finally had to tell the women they were not pregnant, he told them their babies were dead and that the fetuses would “resorb” back into the bodies. Then he could begin a new round of hormone injections and pregnancy tests… Dr. Jacobson had mailed fraudulent insurance claims and bills… Jacobson also had committed wire fraud by phoning his patients to schedule appointments for fraudulent treatments.” http://www.nytimes.com/1993/09/08/us/conviction-upheld-in-fertility-case.html; this while he “operated a fertility clinic in Vienna, Va., from 1976 to 1988” just as news of the Moscow Signal went public.

EMF Killing Fields

I’m not fond of grim titles. In spite of it, they’re racking up on my blog index. I’ve been told that to make a point on the internet, I should say whatever I’m saying in “five words or less” and make it catchy. ‘Catchy’ sounds cute, like a song: Catchy tunes, repetition in your head. That really is what’s going on here and this post is about the biological and psychological cost of the contagion.  It’s also about precious commodities, government intrusion, UFOs, mental health, life, death, and God-like powers. I could spend the rest of the summer amending this post and maybe I will (in the comments), but what I hope to do is make it a smooth read for you and say more about the speculative things I think on the subject. First though, I’ll explain the title.

   EMF stands for “electromagnetic field” which can be found everywhere in some manner of degree. It’s the ‘free energy’ swirling around in toroid-like curvilinear space. If scientists are ever able to articulate the full activity of EMFs they would be describing the Mind of God as many people conceive it –nothing in existence operates outside the influence of EMFs. They present the conditions in which all things behave, or “have being“. In different words, radiation, radio-frequency (RF), microwaves (MW) and the entire vibratory spectrum of energy called Light is referencing EMFs. “[E]nergy is clearly the fundamental concept. By energy, we mean an action principle, that which causes things to happen.” –Michael Mannion, ufologist (Mindshift, p106); “I, and many of us, take the view that the only real energy that we know about is part of the electromagnetic spectrum. That vibration and movement and energy are all interrelated. We are probably not dealing with strange types of energies..” –Edwin Mitchell, astronaut (ibid.)
   Conscious Evolution (see Thrive or Threat), for all its semantic permutations, is the attainment of knowledge about EMFs. To you and me, it’s about coexisting with technology that is altering the electromagnetic conditions in which we autonomically have being.  Autonomy, the power of self-governance, is a benefit of optimizing design; in a society, a system, or a cell. By definition autonomy is independent of outside control. The present applications of artificial EMFs erase all previous notions of autonomy.
   Killing fields are the physical places bearing our grimmest reminders of war; collective impressions of slaughtered innocence; permanent losses for political, abstract and temporal objectives. Ground zeroes all, in the killing fields where Cosmic Order is punctured and replaced by manmade voids, mortification should hold us back and allow the forces that humans abandoned to refill the vacuum –God, nature, love, respect, generational time– if we were wise enough to hallow them and humble enough to accept the utter failure of understanding they represent.
   Other people long before me have called artificial EMFs the killing fields: Arthur Firstenberg wrote, “In 1982 I was in my final year of medical school… One day I collapsed and was unable to get up… It wasn’t a heart attack, but it was six months before I could walk up a flight of stairs without becoming short of breath… I gradually found that I was being effectively disabled by my society. Having stumbled upon an obviously well-kept secret, I researched the world literature on bioelectromagnetics… together with other members of a support group I had found how best to live with my disability… But in July 1996, to my dismay, I learned that an innovation was coming to my city which threatened to make it impossible to avoid exposure any more… [On] November 14, 1996, Omnipoint, New York City’s first digital provider..open[ed] for business… According to health authorities, an early flu hit New York City –but not Boston and not Philadelphia– on about 15 November… I learned that in February 1996, Congress had passed a law prohibiting local governments from denying permits for cell phone antennae because of environmental concerns… I also learned that the FCC had just issued regulations setting public exposure limits for microwave radiation at levels..ten thousand times higher than levels..causing reports of illness from all over the world.” http://www.whale.to/b/elfb.html
Omnipoint, est.1987; “before Omnipoint, the use of encryption technology was mostly limited to  military communications. Omnipoint is the first and only company in the New York metropolitan area to use GSM – Global System for Mobile communications.” http://www.schneier.com/cmea-omnipoint.html; Dec.1997–”In wireless, it is often said, coverage is king. Omnipoint has had its fair share of cell siting hassles. To get over objections, the carrier has placed its transceivers inside gargoyles on the facades of landmark buildings in Manhattan..http://www.rcrwireless.com/article/19971229/sub/rcrs-1997-person-of-the-year-george-schmitt-omnipoints-george-schmitt-burns-the-midnight-oil-to-build-pcs-firm/
                                                            …and it was not long afterwards that unusual numbers of dead birds starting falling on city sidewalks: “ I first suspected a poisoning event, especially since someone had been poisoning pigeons in Central Park just previous to the finding of dead crows. The state pathologist’s lab, however, got some of the dead crows and tested them for a number of things, but found no indication of pesticide poisoning. Instead, the symptoms were consistent with a viral infection… At the same time the outbreak of “St. Louis encephalitis” was being reported in much the same areas where crows were being found dead. It seemed odd to me that crows would be dying from that disease, as most birds that are exposed to it get mildly sick, but do not die..On 23 September [1999], the State of New York Department of Health released the information that several bird specimens from the NYC area had been diagnosed as being infected with a virus that most closely resembled West Nile virus The 17 Dec 1999 issue of Science.. described the strain found in North America as matching a strain isolated from the brain of a dead “goose” in Israel in 1998 …The authors state “The WN virus could have entered the Western Hemisphere through a number of mechanisms…”  http://citizen2009.wordpress.com/west-nile-virus/
   There is enough circumstantial evidence to suggest that Omnipoint’s Global System for Mobile (GSM) signal operations could be among the mechanisms spreading West Nile.
   “The GSM standard was accepted in the United States in 1995. GSM-1900 cellular systems have been operating in the US since 1996.” http://inventors.about.com/library/weekly/aa072199.htm
   Omnipoint’s “Personal Communications Systems, PCS..[was] a newer class of wireless..services..authorized by the FCC [which] use a different radio frequency, the 1.9 GHz band, than cellular phones and generally use all-digital technology for transmission and reception… In 1994, the FCC announced it was allocating spectrum specifically for PCS..” http://inventors.about.com/library/weekly/aa072199.htm
“PCS differs from existing cellular and SMR in three basic ways: frequency, spectrum and geographic division. PCS networks operates in a higher-frequency bank (1850-1990 MHz) compared to the cellular and SMR frequency (800-900 MHz). The higher frequency band for PCS networks requires a greater number of total cell sites to cover the same geographic area as existing cellular networks… http://www.hotstocked.com/companies/n/northeast-digital-networks-inc-GSMI-description-68560.html
“The 1.9 GHz frequency is set aside for cordless phones in the United States; the  2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz frequencies also allow phone communication…Other radio bands are set aside specifically for international uses. For  instance, the 1.9 GHz (1880 to 1900 MHz) frequency band is used by the DECT  standard for international calls.” http://www.ehow.com/about_5070257_ghz-phone.html
We used the pulsed RF fields at a frequency of 2.45 GHz that is commonly used in telecommunications to expose cultured human HL-60 cells… We observed that 221 genes altered their expression after a 2-h [hour] exposure. The number of affected genes increased to 759 after a six-h exposure… These results indicate that the RF fields at 2.45 GHz can alter gene expression..through non-thermal mechanism.” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16107253

then again, New York’s Office of Emergency Management (OEM) system could also be to blame:

New York’s OEM frequencies transmit in a narrow range at 147 MHz. http://www.dhses.ny.gov/oem/radiological/
…human neuroblastoma cells were exposed to electromagnetic radiation at 147 MHz, amplitude-modulated (AM) at 16 Hz… Enhanced efflux at 0.05 W/kg peaked at the 13-16 Hz and at the 57.5-60 Hz modulation ranges…These results confirm that..radiofrequency radiation can induce responses in cells of nervous tissue origin from widely different animal species, including humans…” http://www.scribd.com/doc/34980786/RF-Induced-Calcium-Ion-Efflux-Enhancement-From-Neuroblastoma
“Dr [Ross] Adey demonstrated how a 147-megahertz (MHz) field, which at tissue level had  an intensity of 0.8 milliwatts per square centimetre, caused an efflux or  release of calcium ions from the irradiated brain tissue…” http://www.whale.to/b/adey.html

Devra Davis, a celebrated US Public Health policy official renown for cancer expertise, has said, We are, in fact, conducting an experiment right now on all of you… with 5.5 billion cell phones… you can see [on graphs] the exposure gets..through the brain [of a child]… they will readily absorb microwave energy…” (minutes 14-18) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wNNSztN7wJc&feature=player_embedded Davis then describes the results of emf-pulse radiation at cell phone frequencies on the prenatal brains of rats and rabbits: “during embryonic development in the hippocampus…So, the results were pretty stunning; significantly decreased hippocampal granular cell number…parametal cell loss…significantly fewer brain cells… you’re getting fewer cells forming.” (minutes 22-24) “Increased DNA base modifications and free radical formation in brain tissues of adult rabbits and newborns… gliosis in the brain, epithelial degeneration… In the long run if we’re having an effect on ‘brain reserve’..I think it’s a very worrisome indication.” (minutes 30-31)…”It’s very important we get better science underlying our understanding of the potential biological impact that these devices may be having on our lives. Now, certainly the United States  is unique in the world today by encouraging infants and toddlers to use cell phones. And…in fact, people are using phones somewhat like pacifiers. And on the case for the Baby iPhone rattle it says,’Protect your phone from drool and dribble.’ …So this is the future work…” (minutes 37-38) “Researchers want better resources for more study… We need a massive program of monitoring and measurement…” (minute 52) “The country that is doing the best job on this is Israel, whatever you may think about Israel today, they understand radar, they understand microwaves, and they understand cell phones… We would do well to take some advice.” (minute 55)

Devra Davisalso served as Lead Author of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change [IPCC, of the U.N.]– the group awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007 with..Al Gore.” http://www.heartmdinstitute.com/about-us/contributing-editors/devra-davis-phd-mph; what might this have to do with radar-driven weather? http://jenniferlake.wordpress.com/2009/07/17/weather-control/ More to the point, the question is begging about radar-driven pandemics and “climate-dependent epidemic diseases” [see last note on post] http://jenniferlake.wordpress.com/2009/09/12/global-emerging-infections-system/

   The most remarkable thing about Devra Davis’s presentation is not her deference to Israeli leadership. It is not the professing of her own ignorance and arrogance (“I just did not believe it“..min.4…”I thought there was nothing to itreally“..min.14… “The Telecommunications Act of 1996..was passed during my administration* because we didn’t know any better. I had no idea“..min.53). It is not the call for funding or time (..”things will become clearer when..more resources are applied to studying this problem. We really need more resources“..min.37). The most remarkable thing is the statement and restatement that among the generation of children today “there will be no controls.”  In medical jargon controls are the experiment contrast population meant to simulate an average, or normal, biological response versus the test subjects. Artificial EMFs erase all previous notions of normal.

*>>>”my administration” refers to Davis’s Senior Advisor appointment as a deputy assistant to the Assistant Secretary of Health (HHS), as of July 1993, the Assistant Secretary was Dr. Philip R. Lee of University of California, San Francisco and USAID; as a medical supervisor for San Francisco General Hosp., Dr.Lee oversaw the largest concentration of AIDS patients in the U.S.–following a previously epic concentration of historic polio at that institution (both diseases of radiation and chemical poisoning). Lee held the same post (Asst. Sec. Dept of HEW) under LBJ and was known as an insider of the Lasker Syndicate (controllers of the American Cancer Society and NIH); Dr. Lee was the Director of the Institute of Health Policy Studies from approx.1971 to 1993  http://aspe.hhs.gov/Progsys/Forum/leebio.htm; http://www.smokershistory.com/prlee.htm  A note here about the campaign against tobacco is suggestive in the role of nicotine as a potent ‘agonist’ in the protection of nerve cell membranes against depolarization– in other words, nicotine (nicotinic acid) is radioprotective and highly sought after in pharmaceuticals todayRead more here: www.polioforever.wordpress.com/electromagnetism . The Laskers made a considerable fortune with tobacco and I suspect ‘radium fertilizer’ was used on tobacco since the fertilizer’s popularization (c.1915). Radium fertilizer ‘disappeared’ as a commercial product some time after the hazards of radium became well known, but who’s to know that a dying tobacco farmer named Henrietta Lacks had her cancer cells taken (HeLa cells), in February of 1951, for intensive experimental vaccine research precisely for this reason. The HeLa specimen was taken just as the first domestic nuclear bomb tests at the Nevada Test Site were concluding. The synchronicity of these events and the subsequent use of HeLa cells as the “seedstock” medium for polio vaccine virus leads me to contend that the mass polio vaccinations were marketed to the government as an anti-cancer “fallout” vaccine.  http://jenniferlake.wordpress.com/2011/01/05/immortal-cancer/

And thenOn December 5, 1994 the FCC, in an attempt to help national development of evolving telecommunication, began to auction national licenses for narrowband PCS, a family of mobile or portable radio services that later evolved into voice paging and data services that could be integrated with a variety of competing networks.” http://www.fundinguniverse.com/company-histories/american-tower-corporation-history/ 
The breaking story that had just preceeded the new telecommunications expansion was the revelation of Human Radiation Experiments by Albuquerque journalist Eileen Welsome (The Plutonium File) that caused a scramble in Washington and led to the creation of the president’s Advisory Committee on Human Radiation Experiments (ACHRE) and the Department of Energy’s “Openness Project” . This was to include disclosures  that as many as 200 or more previously uncounted nuclear tests were performed over the heads of North Americans, estimated (in bombs only) to be worth its weight in fallout to 40,000 Hiroshima bombs.  http://polioforever.wordpress.com/fallout/

Leaving Normal…
“The hippocampal formation is a compound structure in the medial temporal lobe of the brain…The temporal lobe is involved in auditory perception and is home to the primary auditory cortex. It is also important for the processing of semantics in both speech and vision. The temporal lobe contains the hippocampus and plays a key role in the formation of long-term memory… The medial temporal lobe consists of structures that are vital for explicit memory. The link between the medial temporal lobe and memory was first hypothesized a century ago. Explicit or declarative memory is the conscious memory of facts and events. Explicit memory is further sub-divided into semantic memory and episodic memory. The structures contained within the medial temporal lobe include the hippocampal regions and the parahippocampal gyrus…” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medial_temporal_lobe
“The dentate gyrus consists of three layers of neurons: molecular, granular, and polymorphic. The middle layer is most prominent and contains granule cells that project to the CA3 subfield of the hippocampus. These granule cells project mostly to interneurons, but also to pyramidal cells and are the principal excitatory neurons of the dentate gyrus… The granule cells in the dentate gyrus are distinguished by their late time of formation during brain development. In rats, approximately 85% of the granule cells are generated after birth. In humans, it is estimated that granule cells begin to be generated during gestation weeks 10.5 to 11, and continue being generated during the second and third trimesters, after birth and all the way into adulthood…” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dentate_gyrus
“Although neurogenesis in the dentate gyrus persists into adulthood, and appears to be under environmental control, modern stereological studies have shown that the total number of granule cells does not vary in adult animals (Rapp and Gallagher, 1996). This implies that there is a steady state turnover of granule cells rather than a continuous accretion.” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2492885/

                                   temporal lobes (in red) 

Birth control for brain cells:

There are lots of ways that radiation injures brain cells but to prevent them from forming really takes the cake! Small wonder that cell phones come equipped with cameras, video, voice recognition, GPS locators, gigabyte storage, organization apps, clocks, docks, bells and strap-ons.  These are functions of the temporal lobes. Adult users may have the luxury of renting spare lobes (paying their cellphone bills), just as Public Health officials have the luxury of characterizing them as addicts –“…preoccupation with a substance or behavior, followed by an increased tolerance… the “high” produced by those substances replaces the function of brain chemicals…” http://cellphoneaddiction.org/ –but new Generation Xers wont have that luxury. They’ll need implants. Conveniently, memory holes are becoming actual places. Forward-thinking entrepreneurs are probably already  offering implant options in less centrally located areas (than your head). This is underway in the creation of SMART environments. Until now, I hadn’t quite gotten ahold of the tangible concept that coordinating SMART technologies are exteriorized brain implants.  Besides carrying vital details about our life history, foreseeably near future phones could mediate all kinds of essential interactions like locking and unlocking doors, starting our cars, accessing bank accounts and broadcasting biometric data. Cell phones could become mandatory. Unsurprising, then, that nobody in policy-making suggests withdrawing phone technologies or allowing citizens to decide by democratic process whether antenna radiation is appropriate. It must be happening…

>>> news story, “Phones Gain Ability to Learn By Touching”…”known as Near-Field Communications, comes from companies that see the phone as the wallet of the future. When touched to payment terminals, NFC-equipped phones can act as credit or debit cards.”   http://news.yahoo.com/phones-gain-ability-learn-touching-213934413–finance.html More impressive is the NFC-capable phones of exchanging data: “Near field communication..and similar devices..establish radio communication with each other by touching them together or bringing them into close proximity, usually no more than a few centimetres.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Near_Field_Communication Imagine someone bumping into you and accessing all the data in your phone. Follow the links for wikipedia’s NFC and you’ll find the Biometric Passport: “The currently standardized biometrics used for this type of identification system are facial recognition, fingerprint recognition, and iris recognition…”   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biometric_passports. Bump. Contact would actually be theatrical at this stage of the game. The technology already exists to harvest all this data remotely, including the scanning of iPhone images for medical diagnosis. See comment 3 ‘Future phones’ for more info on biometrics. There is no logical reason to think that Near Field Communication couldn’t employ Smart Meters for in-house phone taps.

Expanding cell service also now includes Wireless Emergency Alerts: “..starting April 2012. Wireless providers representing nearly 97 percent of subscribers are participating in distributing wireless emergency alerts.” These text-like (but not) messages are of 3 types: Presidential Alerts, Imminent Threat Alerts, and AMBER Alerts. “Mobile users will not be charged for receiving these..and are automatically enrolled… Users will have the ability to opt-out of the AMBER..and/or Imminent Threat Alerts but not the Presidential Alerts.” http://www.crh.noaa.gov/hun/?n=wireless_emerg_alerts  –say what?–a spin on “Greetings, take us to your leader”??

The NIH (1992) says the hippocampus is “necessary for the normal development in the child of language syntax, semantics and pragmatics; the capacity for creativity..in language and behavior..; integration of motivational states with experience and learning; and for the construction of a complex, useful and flexible structure of meaning.”   http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1553107

Hippocampal atrophy = Alzheimers

“Inward calcium leakage in the neurons of the brain stimulates hyperactivity..resulting in attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)…When this happens in the brains of unborn babies and young children, it..can cause autism.” (Goldsworthy) In adults, it can cause electromagnetic intolerance, also called electro-hypersensitivity or in severe manifestations, Radio Frequency Sickness Syndrome. “The inward leakage of calcium ions..also opens the various tight junction barriers in our bodies that normally protect us from allergens and toxins in the environment and prevent toxic materials from entering sensitive parts of the body such as the brain. The opening of the blood brain barrier has been shown to cause the death of neurons and can be expected to result in early dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. The opening of the barrier in our respiratory epithelia..has been shown to increase the risk of asthma in children and the opening of the blood-liver barrier may be partially responsible for the current outbreak of liver disease. The opening of other barriers, such as the gut barrier, allows foreign materials from the gut to enter the bloodstream…and has been linked to autoimmune diseases.” (Goldsworthy, 2012) http://polioforever.wordpress.com/electromagnetism/

This snip out of the timeline is beginning to tell a story:
1996
–Mad Cow disease is identified, caused by ‘prions’, farmer/scientist Mark Purdey files suit in the UK; originally called “bovine AIDS”
–Feb., US Congress passes the Telecommunications Act of 1996; prohibits local gov’ts and citizens from siting cell towers based on health and environment concerns http://www.stern.nyu.edu/networks/telco96.html
–May, Alzheimer’s world expert, Dr. Tsunao Saitoh, is murdered in La Jolla, California during broad daylight by ‘men in black’
–May-Oct, largest outbreak of E.coli in history; Japan; 17,877 cases, 12 deaths (peak in July) http://jenniferlake.wordpress.com/2011/06/25/shiga-boom/
WAR in the Congo (initiated as ‘first Congo war’), ongoing… Hostilities estimated to have killed 10 million  http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_qa5391/is_200109/ai_n21477105/
–July, The US Dept. of Defense issues the Joint Non Lethal Weapons Directive featuring Active Denial acoustic frequency systems http://www.dtic.mil/whs/directives/corres/pdf/300003p.pdf
–US Food and Drug Administration “revised 50-year-old regulations to allow medical researchers to enroll patients.. without their consent” [see Jay Katz obit]  http://www.nytimes.com/2008/11/20/nyregion/20katz.html
–Aug., U.S. Air Force reveals techniques on “Owning the Weather” http://www.chemtrails911.com/docs/00_2008/Chemtrails%20Timeline%201.htm…………..
And let’s not forget:

“New York City’s Office of Emergency Management (OEM) was created in 1996 by Mayor Rudolph Giuliani to manage the city’s response to catastrophes, including terrorist attacks (see 1996). In the years preceding 9/11, it holds regular interagency training exercises… One exercise, which takes place in May 2001, is based on terrorists attacking New York with bubonic plague (see May 11, 2001)… OEM will be preparing for a bioterrorism exercise the morning of 9/11…  http://thirdring.wordpress.com/ ( a blog about the anthrax attacks)

Part of that story is told in “Blood Coltan…the precious metal in the heart of every mobile [phone] from the Congo” http://wideeyecinema.com/?p=842
   Another part of the story has roots in the late 60s with the development of genetic recombination and the successful achievements of Paul Berg combining E.coli with the SV40 monkey virus “transgene”. SV40, an ingredient in mass-produced vaccines of the 50s and 60s along with HeLa cells, readily ‘expresses’ its genes under the influence of radiofrequency. The rapidly proliferating, gene-swapping E.coli are the most natural bacteria vector in the mammalian life-cycle.
   In 1974, the Director of the NIH was one of the top “health physicists” in the country, Dr. Robert S. Stone of UCLA. Stone participated in the secret human plutonium injection experiments for the Manhattan Project (Atomic Energy Commission). In the early 70s, as the mobile-phone/cellular rollout was underway, NIH Director Stone penned this official note to a colleague: “…a year ago [1973] our concern was limited to only a few [genetically recombined] agents of importance to man, such as the infectious adenovirus 2-SV40 hybrids. In the past year, the technology for the production of autonomously replicating DNA recombinants has burgeoned, and we will have to be concerned not only with possible pathogens of human beings, but also..agents of agricultural and industrial importance…” http://profiles.nlm.nih.gov/ps/access/CDBBGK.pdf

Back in the 1940s, brain damage from radiation became a major military concern because of fallout. Biology research quickly expanded into a new set of disciplines called “health physics” and took on the task of predicting  human “performance deficits” under conditions of the Nuclear Battlefield. Military planners were preparing to harden and foolproof their systems against the acutely disabling, if temporary, effects from fallout. These next few italicized quotes are from military documents published in the 1950s and 60s, additions in brackets are mine:  
“It may be that certain populations of proliferating neurons in the adult can be damaged or destroyed by relatively low doses of radiationchanges in brain metabolism were reported after very low doses of ionizing radiation..measuring local cerebral glucose utilization.
Lower rates of glucose use [dementia, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, http://www.neurology.org/content/39/11/1427.abstract] were found..after irradiation….hippocampal spike discharges..developed soon after irradiation when no other clinical signs of neurological damage or radiation sickness were present. [hippocampus damage: depression and/or hyperactivity, amnesia, memory loss, schizophrenia]
…the hippocampus is important in critical functions like learning, memory, and motor performance….these data suggest that hippocampal electro-physiology may be the most sensitive measure of functional brain changes after irradiation.”
“The radiosensitivity of certain types of [brain] glial cells (beta astrocyte) is well recognized…”
Clinical evidence also suggests that radiogenic demyelination may occur…”
 “…delayed damage of capillary..cells may occur leading to a breakdown of the blood-brain barrier. This would result in vasogenic edema..and eventually neuronal and myelin degeneration. “

Myelin is not just fatty stuff that coats your nerves. Devra Davis writes in her book Disconnect, “Myelin is believed to confer judgement, wisdom, impulse control, and many other properties we associate with maturity and a good life.” Kindle sample text of Disconnect: http://www.skepdic.com/skeptimedia/skeptimedia108.html
   Without healthy myelin, one ends up with polio-like disease. http://polioforever.wordpress.com/the-polio-like-diseases/;  due to a surge in West Nile, the CDC has posted an answer page on West Nile poliomyelitis: http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dvbid/westnile/qa/poliomyelitis.htm

What becomes clearer is that EMFs and fallout produce identical types of damage to cells and tissues and that our governments have known it for many decades. http://polioforever.wordpress.com/radiation-injury/ Fallout injuries, in fact, were studied with X-rays and may or may not have included additional chemicals (as the category of ‘combined’ injury).
The first proposed military application of atomic energy was not nuclear weaponry but radiological warfare (RW)– the use of radioactive materials to cause radiological injury. A May 1941 report by the National Academy of Sciences listed the first option as the ‘production of violently radioactive materials..to be scattered as bombs over enemy territory… Some..concluded that radiological poisons could be–strategic weapons against cities and their food supplies. Once absorbed into the body, radioactive materials would cause slow, progressive injuries. Others proposed that RW could be a more humane form of warfare…” http://www.hss.doe.gov/healthsafety/ohre/roadmap/achre/chap11_2.html
   The more sophisticated approach to radiological warfare in our time makes a harvest of energy and frequencies without the telltale tracks of radioactive substances (though currently barium and strontium are widely dispersed in chemtrails). The most infamous early example was the microwaving of the U.S. Embassy in Moscow by the Soviets which began in 1953 and ostensibly ended in the 1970s. http://jenniferlake.wordpress.com/2012/09/19/the-moscow-signal/
   A 1985 news feature from CNN reports on radiofrequency weapons in which [minute 6] an anonymous government scientist says, “Certain kinds of weak electromagnetic signals work exactly like drugs, so the promise [of RF weapons] is anything you can do with drugs you can do with the right electromagnetic signals.” (1) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lgJ6SpHZir8; (2) http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&v=boZIofptQiw&NR=1

   Even basic standard current at 60 Hz poses risks: “Human Tumor Cells Thrive in ELF Magnetic Fields…and are more immune to attack when exposed to power line fields, according to Dr. Jerry Phillips..in San Antonio, TX. Because the field effects persist for months after exposure to extremely low frequency (ELF) radiation, Philips argues that 60 Hz fields ‘are capable of producing significant permanent changes in cellular structure and function’..[and] may be the first step in explaining the abnormally high cancer rates..among people exposed to electromagnetic fields (EMFs).” http://microwavenews.com/news/backissues/j-a86issue.pdf

“In 1948, the same year that Shockley invented the transistor, Claude Shannon invented the information theory that underlies most modern communications and computer science… In defining how much information can be sent down a noisy channel, Shannon showed that engineers can choose between narrowband high-powered solutions and broadband low-powered solutions… Engineers..have pursued a strategy of long and strong: longwavelengths and powerful transmissions…They have used power as a substitute for bandwidth… Telecosmic companies such as Qualcomm use Shannon’s bandwidth as a replacement for power..[p85]… Faster and better than the wireline mean, these new wireless systems are largely fruits of a new concept..that has been developed and launched..by a company in San Diego named Qualcomm that few people had heard of until 1999, when its shares rose in value by 2,619 percent and it became the leading star of the globe’s stock markets. Qualcomm could defy the world…” [p84] ..”As the only way to reach the entire surface of the globe at once, satellites play a key role in the Telecosm paradigm.. fiber [optics] is sparse in the last mile.“[p102] ..”LEOs [low earth orbits] fit the low-power paradigm…Decentralization of service coverage also favors LEOs [p105]..General Atomics and others have proposed to launch dirigibles and circling automated airplanes to cover urban areas. But satellite service becomes paradoxically more valuable as populations thin out.” [p106, Telecosm, by George Gilder, 2000 Simon and Schuster]
   The comprehensive view on biological impacts from EMF radiation takes into account that in 2006 Qualcomm CEO Irwin Jacobs took the seat of Chairman on the board of the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, our paragon of “metabiology” since the 1960s. One of the Salk’s longest and most beloved Directors, Frederick de Hoffman who died in 1988 of AIDs, was a Manhattan Project veteran as assistant to Edward Teller and the founder of General Atomics, the subsidiary of General Dynamics. Without de Hoffman, nuclear historians say, the hydrogen bomb would have taken much longer to figure out. The Salk Institute has always been a scientific refuge for leading stars of the globe from its business chiefs to associate intstitutions; working partnerships with Scripps, Rockefeller U., Cold Spring Harbor Lab, the Weizmann and Pasteur Institutes in particular. This constellation of private laboratories, of which the Salk is newest, are the biological faces of advanced weapons in the west.  The model parent, Pasteur, could fairly be called the “mothership of metabiology”. It’s westernmost counterparts became integral proving grounds for the University of California feeder system. Some of the most prodigious academic work on EMFs has been generated out of the UC schools (i.e. Berkeley, UCLA, UCSD).
   For example: Dr. W. Ross Adey (1922-2004) was both a pioneer and leader in the field of electromagnetic effects on the brain. Adey came from his native Australia by way of Oxford University to the U.S. to join the faculty at UCLA in 1957… In October of 2000 he wrote, “Wherever we go, we will be immersed in a sea of low-level, pulsed microwave signals… It is not a good thing to proceed toward a world of ubiquitous wireless communication in a totally uncontrolled fashion…”    In his 2002 interview [for the UCLA record], Adey recalled the question that led to the first studies with amplitude-modulated radio-frequency fields: ‘If we made a radio signal look like a brainwave, would it influence behavior?’” http://www.bri.ucla.edu/bri_weekly/special_adeymemorial.asp
   Dr. Adey’s $64,000 Question landed him a place with the CIA’s Project Pandora, according to researcher Tim Rifat.  “Adey found that by using 0.75mW/cm2 intensity of pulse modulated microwave at a frequency of 450 MHz it was discovered that an ELF [Extremely Low Frequency] modulation could be used to control all aspects of human behaviour… By use of my microwave detector, I have found that mobile phones of the newer type give off a pulse..signal of around 0.75mW/cm2 at the earpiece. This may be coincidence, but..in theory..[it means] a precise behavioural pattern [is being beamed] into every mobile phone user in the UK.” http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/vision_remota/esp_visionremota_9d_a.htm
>>>The U.S. PAVE PAWS North American radar system, initiated in 1980, uses the 450MHz range in the 70 cm wavelength band: http://www.w5yi.org/ama_news_article.php?id=191l
   If Tim Rifat is giving us good information, it certainly isn’t the first time an everyday microwave appliance for the public matched a known range for experiment use: “Microwave (MW) energy..is able to penetrate deep into biological materials. We investigated the effect of MW (at 2450 MHz) irradiation on gene delivery..and observed enhanced transgene expression… The specific wavelength used for domestic cooking and heating devices is 2450 MHz…” http://www.nature.com/gt/journal/v16/n1/full/gt2008144a.html
2450 MHz, which is a measure of frequency (and not power, measured in Watts or milliwatts) has become standard in RFID applications. Here’s an example of “Intellitag” reader-&-tag sets for inventory control: http://www.currentdirections.com/hardware/intermec/915-2450-fixed-readers.html, http://www.currentdirections.com/hardware/intermec/2450-metal-mount-tag.html
These 2450 MHz barcode reading gadgets are made by a company in Flushing, NY (Queens) that even calls itself Alien Technology Corporation  http://www.geminicomputersinc.com/aln-alr-2850-devc.html
–okay, now, that’s just a little frosting for the shrinking cake.  Wondering whether grocery counters are using these frequencies? The answer is Yes –maybe yours– and puts a touch of irony in the option for “Self Check-out”.

You may have already seen this recent story:

May, 2012 — “Rockefeller University researchers have remotely activated genes inside living animals..[using] radio waves..and..coated iron oxide nanoparticles..injected..into tumors…” http://www.kurzweilai.net/radio-waves-switch-on-genes-for-non-invasive-treatments
“…The radio waves are ideal for this sort of remote manipulation because they can pass through thick layers of tissue, and they can be easily focused…Even better, the researchers have already developed a way to achieve similar, albeit weaker, results without having to inject nanoparticles at all. They have developed cells that can grow their own required nanoparticles…”  http://io9.com/5908065/scientists-switch-mouses-genes-off-and-on-with-radio-waves?tag=genetics   Ever hopeful at Kurzweil AI (AI for accelerated intelligence), the report notes, “Friedman’s current method is not practical for clinical testing because it is not ethical to grow tumors in humans, so the researchers are planning to test alternative delivery systems for the nanoparticles.”
–no ethical problem getting humans to grow their own cancer with the help of cell towers, though. People willingly ingest nanoparticles for “health’ so it’s worth knowing how the mechanism works; the RFs ever-so-lightly heat up the nanoparticles to artificially warm the ion channels to ‘operating temperature’, which is cell-signal language for friendly “incoming” messengers (electrolytes); the cell then depolarizes its membrane in advance of an efflux/influx of nutrients– or transgenes and nanoparticles. I’ll have to add this technique to my list of reasons for not drinking colloidal silver. http://jenniferlake.wordpress.com/2009/08/17/colloidal-silver/; This method is also the same principle at work iron oxide-containing aerosol particulates.
   In medicine, iron oxide nanoparticles are currently in use as tracking labels for therapeutic stem cells, called SPIONs (spy-ons! tee-hee) for Superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles. http://phys.org/news/2012-06-superparamagnetic-iron-oxide-nanoparticles-track.html
So, radiofrequency-manipulated transgenes on cancer cell carriers are the evolving accomplishment of what I speculate are the ideal type of  DNA computer. My thoughts are here: http://jenniferlake.wordpress.com/2009/11/08/a-few-words-about-the-agenda/

Frequency Basics….
“Electromagnetic waves are described in terms of their “wavelength” and “frequency.” The wavelength is the length of one cycle, which is the distance from the highest point of one wave to the highest point of the next wave, and the frequency is the number of cycles that occur in one second. Frequency is measured in units called “hertz,” named for the German physicist Heinrich Hertz. The frequencies of microwaves run from 300 to 3,000 megahertz (1 megahertz equals 1 million hertz, or 1 million cycles per second), corresponding to wavelengths of 100 to 10 centimeters.” http://what-when-how.com/inventions/microwave-cooking-inventions/; this range is also called UHF http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultra_High_Frequency
*
                                                               
“The sine wave or sinusoid..describes a smooth repetitive oscillation… the amplitude is the peak deviation of the function from its center position… The sine wave is important in physics because it retains its waveshape when added to another sine wave of the same frequency…” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sine_wave
                                                                  2-dimensional model
“..modulation is the process of varying one or more properties of a high-frequency periodic waveform, called the carrier signal, with a modulating signal which typically contains information… modulation..[conveys] a message signal..inside another signal that can be physically transmitted.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Modulation
“In the case of frequency modulation [FM], a data signal is used to modify the frequency of the carrier. When this occurs, the frequency of the carrier will increase as the amplitude of the data signal increases. Amplitude modulation [AM] works in a similar way, though the carrier amplitude is modified to conform to the amplitude of the data signal.” http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-a-carrier-wave.htm

Pulse modulation –“Pulse-Amplitude Modulation is “pulse shaping”. Essentially, communications engineers realize that the shape of the pulse in the time domain can positively or negatively affect the characteristics of that pulse in the frequency domain. There is no one way to shape a pulse, there are all sorts of different pulse shapes that can be used…   The square wave is a basic choice for transmitting digital data because it is easy to transmit, and is generally easy to receive… The most logical way to transmit a digital signal is through a stream of pulses. One distinct pulse for a digital “1″, and another distinct pulse for a digital “0″. If we take the fourier transform of a square wave, we get a sinc function. A sinc function is a never-ending function, which means that a square wave in the time domain has a very wide bandwidth….It turns out that simply by changing the shape of the pulse (changing it away from a square wave), we can create a signal with better properties: lower bandwidth, lower error rate, etc…” http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Communication_Systems/Pulse_Amplitude_Modulation

“Radiation from mammals and the living human body..emit peak radiation..in the far infrared. This is therefore the range of infrared wavelengths that pit viper snakes and passive IR cameras must sense.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wien%27s_displacement_law
“Spectroscopy is the study of the interaction of electromagnetic radiation with  matter. There are many forms of spectroscopy, each contributing useful  information to identify substances and to determine various characteristics of  their structure… Atoms and molecules can absorb electromagnetic radiation, but only at certain  energies (wavelengths)… we can note some general trends..The heavier an atom, the lower the frequencies for vibrations that involve that  atom… Because the IR spectrum of each molecule is unique, it can serve as a signature  or fingerprint to identify the molecule.” http://www.wag.caltech.edu/home/jang/genchem/infrared.htm
“Near infrared light is closest in wavelengh to visible light and far infrared is closer to the microwave region… far infrared wavelengths are about the size of a pin head…Far infrared waves are thermal… any object which has a temperature radiates in the infrared.. even an ice cube emit[s] infrared.” http://science.hq.nasa.gov/kids/imagers/ems/infrared.html; “This range of wavelengths corresponds to a frequency range of approximately 1 to 400 THz [terahertz, or trillion hertz]” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Infrared

The healthy human brain naturally operates in the acoustic range of frequencies from 1 to 200Hz:
Normal wakeful brain activity is called betawave: “Beta is the frequency range from 12 Hz to about 30 Hz…”  Soundwaves below hearing range are called infrasound and characterize the frequencies generally used in Active Denial systems (ADS).
 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electroencephalography. The principle of ADS is electronic pest control and includes all kinds of unregulated devices: “Electromagnetic pest repelling devices claim to alter the electromagnetic (EM) field of household wiring, and vibrate the electromagnetic field that always exists around the wiring in the walls of your house.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Riddex
Active Denial-type example: “The possibility of a device that produces frequency that causes vibration of the eyeballs — and therefore distortion of vision — was apparently confirmed by the work of engineer Vic Tandy while attempting to demystify a “haunting” in his laboratory in Coventry. This “spook” was characterised by a feeling of unease and vague glimpses of a grey apparition. Some detective work implicated a newly installed extractor fan that, Tandy found, was generating infrasound of 18.9 Hz, 0.3 Hz, and 9 Hz.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sonic_weapon
A truck-mounted military Active Denial device, operating at 95 GHz,  is demonstrated for TV cameras: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dmuyLIrSjxI&feature=related; at 30 GHz (30 billion hertz) and above the range is called Extremely High Frequency. “92–95 GHz bands are also used for point-to-point high-bandwidth communication links” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extremely_high_frequency

“The Long Range Acoustic Device (LRAD) is an acoustic hailing device and sonic weapon developed by LRAD Corporation to send messages, warnings, and harmful, pain inducing tones over longer distances… According to the manufacturer’s specifications, the systems weigh from 15 to 320 pounds (6.8 to 150 kg) and can emit sound in a 30° beam at 2.5 kHz… Carl Gruenler, former vice president of military and government operations for American Technology Corporation [now called LRAD] said that being within 100 metres (330 ft) of the LRAD is extremely painful, and that it was designed for use in short bursts at 300 metres (980 ft), to give targeted people a headache. He said that “you definitely don’t want to be” within 100 m; and, that the device will cause permanent auditory damage” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Long_Range_Acoustic_Device; video demonstration http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UFd49kXdqhw&feature=relmfu

“In 1961, Allen Frey..reported that humans could hear microwaves…Pulsed microwave..(sound-to-skull) transmission was discovered during World War II by radar technicians who..could hear the buzz… By proper choice of pulse characteristics, intelligent speech may be created…” http://polioforever.wordpress.com/electromagnetism/
Allan Frey wrote: “Burr and Mauro (6) presented evidence that indicates that there is an  electrostatic field about neurons. Morrow and Sepiel (7) presented evidence that  indicates the existence of a magnetic field about neurons…  we have obtained other nonauditory effects and found that the sensitive area for  detecting rf sounds is a region over the temporal lobe of the brain. One can shield, with a 2-in.sq. piece of fly screen, a portion of the strippled area  shown in Fig. 6 and completely cut off the rf sound…” –metal fly screen folks!  Frey’s original paper: http://www.raven1.net/frey.htm

“The microwave auditory effect, also known as the microwave hearing effect or the Frey effect, consists of audible clicks (or, with modulation, whole words) induced by pulsed/modulated microwave frequencies. The clicks are generated directly inside the human head without the need of any receiving electronic device.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microwave_hearing_effect
“The first known experiment with microwaved voices was conducted by Sharp and Grove** in the early 70′s… In the early 1990s, Dr. Edward Taub reported that words could be communicated onto a screen using the thought-activated movements of a computer cursor… In 1994, the the brain wave patterns of 40 subjects were officially correlated with both spoken words and silent thought. This was achieved by a neurophysiologist, Dr. Donald York, and a speech pathologist, Dr. Thomas Jensen, from the University of Missouri. They clearly identified 27 words/syllables in specific brain wave patterns and produced a computer program with a brain wave vocabulary.” http://www.surveillanceissues.com/default.htm
**”Sharp and Grove developed receiverless wireless voice transmission technologies for the Advanced Research Projects Agency at Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, in 1973.”

Normal human perception of sound: “The human ear can nominally hear sounds in the range 20 Hz.. to 20,000 Hz (20 kHz). The upper limit tends to decrease with age; most adults are unable to hear above 16 kHz. The lowest frequency that has been identified as a musical tone is 12 Hz under ideal laboratory conditions. Tones between 4 and 16 Hz can be perceived via the body’s sense of touch.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychoacoustics
Infrasound are sound waves that are felt by the body rather than heard…This is sound that is silent, below the range of human hearing. What happens when the human body is assaulted with infrasound repeatedly over long periods of time? Depending upon the amplitude or intensity, it produces feelings of extreme discomfort…Depending upon the frequency and intensity, infrasound can keep you awake, or, induce sleep. Therefore, it can serve as a remote means of causing sleep deprivation. Infrasound also has a deteriorating effect on work performance similar to alcohol ingestion… However, there is one effect of infrasound that can prove deadly during long-term exposure. Infrasound induces stress and causes the body to secrete the hormone Cortisol. This effect is a medically recognized danger of long-term infrasound exposure… during long term stress, or if Cortisol production is prolonged, its effects on the human body can become deadly. It can cause hyperglycemia, brain damage, weakening of the immune system, weight gain, diabetes, high blood pressure, and other complications. It actually begins to shut down immunity… infrasound weapons are used in conjunction with microwave (or millimeter wave) through-the-wall weapons that have a specific effect on brain activity.” http://www.darkgovernment.com/news/infrasound-stress-inducing-weapons/
“[An] audio signal can be modulated onto the microwave carrier and subsequently perceived as the original sound “in the head” of a person illuminated with the microwave radiation.” http://www.bio.net/bionet/mm/neur-sci/2002-May/048366.html

“Auditory hallucinations can range from primitive noises such as bangs, whistles, claps, screams, ticks, and others to speech and music. Commonly people who have auditory hallucinations hear voices which utter short comprehensible phrases. Sometimes the person may recognize the voice as one of a family member or deceased friend and sometimes it may be the voice of a stranger or even God. The voices or sounds can be thought to originate from anywhere.” http://neurology.health-cares.net/auditory-hallucination.php; “Because of long wavelengths, infrasound may not appear to be coming from a specific location.” http://old.nationalwind.org/events/siting/presentations/rogers-infrasound.pdf
–light-sounding snaps, ticks or clicks picked up by the ear are not hallucinations. If you can hear it, you’re being microwaved. The sound is produced by rapidly expanding cells.

“The Neurophone was developed by Dr. Patrick Flanagan in 1958. It’s a device that converts sound to electrical impulses. In its original form, electrodes were placed on the skin but with..developments, the signals can be delivered via satellite. They then travel the nervous system directly to the brain (bypassing normal hearing mechanisms.) Dr. Flanagan’s ’3D holographic sound system’ can place sounds in any location… This allows for a variety of deceptions for gullible victims.” http://www.surveillanceissues.com/default.htm   “…Flanagan, then a child of 14 developed a radio transmitter that made  the brain into a radio reciever. This device transmits acoustic information to  the brain by means of radio waves into the skin, bypassing the 8th Crainial  Nerve. When he applied for a patent on the device, the patent examiner rejected  the whole thing saying that such a device would go against all known laws of  science. Over the following years, Dr Flanagan fought against insurmontable odds to prove that the device did indeed work. In the meantime, LIFE magazine ran a major article on Flanagan and the Neurophone, naming him as one of the top ten scientists in the US at the age of 17! [c.1961] …” http://www.rexresearch.com/flanagan/neuroph.htm#breakthru ; “Flanagan says he invented an electronic sleep machine at age 8, developed and sold a guided missile detector to the U.S. military at age eleven, gained his air pilot’s licence at age seventeen, and been employed by a Think Tank at The Pentagon, and later as a consultant to the NSA, CIA, NASA, Tufts University, the Office of Naval Research, and the Aberdeen Proving Grounds for the Department of Unconventional Weapons and Warfare.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patrick_Flanagan. Hypnotist Dick Sutphen says, “Dr. Patrick Flanagan is a personal friend of mine… When he attempted to patent the device, the government demanded that he prove it worked. When he did, the National Security Agency confiscated the neurophone…” http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~dst/Secrets/TR/sutphen.html  Flanagan eventually got back the rights to his “Revolutionary Ultrasonic Neural Stimulation” device, patented in 1968, and sells them himself, marketed for relaxation and learning. The advertisements are haunting echoes of Sutphen’s warnings on brainwashing: Step One is Alertness Reduction… Step Two is Programmed Confusion (‘deluge of new information, lectures, discussion’,etc)… Step Three is Thought Stopping (by calming techniques, focusing awareness, repetition, etc.). www.phisciences.com
Go ‘head. Brainwash yourself. Our ‘security’ agencies can repurpose the funds.

ULTRASOUND
In physics, the term “ultrasound” applies to all sound waves with a frequency above the audible range of normal human hearing, about 20 kHz. The frequencies used in diagnostic ultrasound are typically between 2 and 18 MHz.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultrasound_imaging
“Sonication is the process of converting an electrical signal into a physical  vibration that can be directed toward a substance [like brain tissue]…The primary part of a sonication device is the ultrasonic electric generator.  This device creates a signal (usually around 20 KHz) that powers a transducer.  This transducer converts the electric signal by using piezoelectric crystals, or  crystals that respond directly to the electricity by creating a mechanical  vibration. This vibration, molecular in origin, is carefully preserved and  amplified by the sonicator, until it is passed through to the probe…  The rapid movement of the probe creates an effect called cavitation. Cavitation occurs when the vibrations create a series of microscopic bubbles in the  solution [tissue], pockets of space wedged between the molecules that form and then  collapse again under the weight of the solution, sending out tiny shockwaves  into the surrounding substance. Thousands of these bubbles forming and  collapsing constantly create powerful waves of vibration that cycle into the  solution and break apart the cells.” http://www.ehow.com/how-does_5171302_sonication-work_.html

“Electroporation and ultrasound have been shown to facilitate the loading of drugs and genes into viable cells.” http://aiche.confex.com/aiche/2005/preliminaryprogram/abstract_24266.htm

Electroporation is a technique that increases the permeability of cell membranes by changing the transmembrane [electric] potential and subsequently disrupting the lipid bilayer integrity to allow transportation of molecules across [through] the cell membrane via nano-size pores… Previously, the idea of destruction of cell membrane integrity by irreversible electroporation [IE] has been applied and demonstrated to effectively exterminate microbial organisms… IE can effectively create tissue death in micro- to millisecond ranges of treatment time… [In this experiment] electrodes made of sintered Ag/AgCl were used for irreversible electroporation.” http://www.tcrt.org/Imaging-Guided-Percutaneous-Irreversible-Electroporation-Ultrasound-and-Immunohistological-Correlation-p-287-294-p16021.html  Electroporation, which has a use in transdermal drug delivery, can cause a cell to empty (efflux) “during and after..pulses several milliseconds in duration.” http://www.cell.com/biophysj/abstract/S0006-3495(95)80363-2
“The silver/silver chloride or Ag/AgCl reference electrode is many electrochemists’ reference electrode of choice…” http://www.consultrsr.com/resources/ref/agcl.htm
electroporation..therefore enables increased drug accumulation in the cells… our results in vitro demonstrated that electroporation of cells enhanced radiation [sensitivity] response… It is already known that reactive oxygen species are formed after electroporation of the cells in vitro [35,36]. Reactive oxygen species are known to contribute to radiation damage to the cells.http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1261257/

Radiofrequency fabricated self-assembling silver nanocrystal-wire brain probes is a subject that can wait for a rainy day because there’s some on-topic real X-files-weird ‘freq’show news:

“Scientists all over the globe have also been creating creatures that are part-human and part-animal in an attempt to find cures for various diseases.  In a previous article, I quoted a Daily Mail article which discussed the “human-animal hybrid embryos” that are secretly being created in British labs….Scientists have created more than 150 human-animal hybrid embryos in British laboratories. The hybrids have been produced secretively over the past three years by researchers looking into possible cures for a wide range of diseases.The revelation comes just a day after a committee of scientists warned of a nightmare ‘Planet of the Apes’ scenario in which work on human-animal creations goes too far…”

Zombie Apocalypse?

Face-eating attack: “Surveillance video shows that for 18 agonizing minutes [the victim]was.. kicked, punched and eaten alive before police shot Eugene four times.” The news announcer reports that the victim was “inadvertantly shot in the chest when police came to his rescue.” http://abcnews.go.com/US/miami-cannibal-victim-recalls-attack/story?id=16549861

The latest “attack takes place in front of the Miami Herald building. That is quite a  coincidence. A security camera on the building captures the attack, but from a  sanitized distance…[Rudy] Eugene was known to the North Miami Police Department cops as the first person they ever Tasered. That incident occurred in 2008 [correction, 2004; Eugene was tased 3 times]both his girlfriend and mother believe someone did something to him, drugged him  or cursed him, to cause his bizarre behavior, because it was so completely out  of character

   “We know the technology exists to put voices in people’s heads, and to control  their emotional states, and it can all be done invisibly…using the Pentagon’s silent sound spread spectrum technology, patented for decades and no doubt beyond our imagining in 2012. Perhaps his behavior could have been  switched to the emotional signature cluster of a rabid animal… So at some point we expect them to tell us that there is a horrible disease, a  form of weaponized rabies or mutated chimera virus, some such thing, that causes  this ‘zombie’ problem.” http://twelfthbough.blogspot.com/2012/06/remote-controlled-fairy-tale.html. The media put out the word that the Miami attack ensued after Eugene took a ‘bath salt’ street drug but the toxicology came back negative. Now, officially, the “mystery deepens” in a case so strange that there is hardly a conclusion to make other than the perpetration of a staged-managed horror using targeted individuals.

   Tasers have been around since NASA scientist and inventor Jack Cover first introduced them in 1970, earning his patents in 1976. In April of 1981, the LAPD became the test force of choice to model Taser use as a ‘less lethal’ alternative. Cover created a corporation called TASERtron Inc. to market his “conducted electrical weapons” (CEW) and “Ultimately in late 1999 the ADVANCED TASER M26 emerged from a reorganized company known as TASER International.

TASERs
Electrical Incapacitation (EI) “devices generate sufficiently large transmembrane voltage..such that pores were created… More extensive EP [electroporation] is expected from the TASER X26 [than the Aegis MK63, as compared]..due to the approximately eight-fold difference in the peak magnitudes..” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19964168. During 2004-2005 many metro US police departments were transitioning to the TASER X26.
   “CEWs were initially heralded as a Star Trek ‘Phaser-like’ device that incapacitated without lasting debilitating effects. However..they have also now become tied to very negative unpleasant things, such as “excited delirium”, “cocaine psychosis” and “in-custody death”….The high-voltage, brief pulse width stimulus train applied by the latest generation of..CEWs [TASER X26] delivers 19 very short duration pulses per second [19Hz]…generates open-circuit (arcing) voltage of up to 50,000 volt to arc through air or across thick clothing…[Chapter 5]  …The stimuli from a CEW will override the motor nervous system and block the command and control of the human body. Conventional stun devices stimulate sensory neurons..and can be overridden by a focused individual. The CEW directly stimulates preendplate motor nerves, causing incapacitation regardless of subject’s mental focus, training, size, or drug-induced dementia.

TASERS GO WIRELESS
 “DARPA, and defence companies in Europe have been working out how to create an  electrically conductive path between a gun and a target without using wires. A  weapon under development by Rheinmetall, based in Dorf, Germany, creates a  conducting channel by using a small explosive charge to squirt a stream of tiny  conductive fibres through the air at the victim (New Scientist print  edition, 24 May 2003)…Meanwhile, Xtreme Alternative Defense Systems (XADS), based in Anderson,  Indiana, will be one of the first companies to market another type of wireless  weapon. Instead of using fibres, the $9,000 Close Quarters Shock Rifle projects  an ionised gas, or plasma, towards the target, producing a conducting channel.  It will also interfere with electronic ignition systems and stop vehicles. “We  will be able to fire a stream of electricity like water out of a hose at one or  many targets in a single sweep,” claims XADS president Peter Bitar.” http://www.envirosagainstwar.org/know/read.php?itemid=1550

The Disease Continuum

Of all the subject matter in this blog, the collective weight gathers on the topic of the Disease Continuum, so named as a manmade phenomenon of modern times. I’m challenging myself here to grasp its scope, locate its origins, describe its momentum and filter out a sensible narrative.

Like an exhausted competitor in an old-time Depression-era Dance Marathon, I’m leaning hard on my ‘partners’, relying on refreshment and support until the music stops. When it stops (if it stops), the grand prize will be survival –merely that– in a fiction of celebration designed for the desperate by the cruel. Thus, simply, stands my take on the practical medical ‘establishment’ paradigm.

In general terms, the mater materia of the Disease Continuum compares to the elements of the ancients [fire, water, earth, air]; four fundamental essences from which it’ s composed. By disease names they are influenza, polio, cancer and AIDS and together, they forge a Ring of Power in the kingdom of Public Health.

…”One Ring to rule them all and in the darkness bind them”

   Common to the four elements of the Continuum is the eugenical substrate on which they emerge in history; they are timely, political, and as inevitable as the science and industry that sustains them. It should interest us that they are characterized as viral and not the foreign biological intruders we suppose.
   “We have travelled a long way from the mysterious filtrable infective particle of..years ago… [W]e have even the evidence that..portions of certain..viruses can be dissociated and later recombined to form a reconstituted infective particle… Clearly discoveries of this sort are providing the basis for an understanding of the host-virus relationship… For virus multiplication is after all a special case of protein biosynthesis… We seem thus to have reached a point at which biochemical and biophysical studies of viruses have really come into their own and offer the greatest prospects of advance.”
–Sir Charles Harington, March 1956,
Ciba Foundation Symposium at the National Institute for Medical Research (NIMR), Mill Hill London [ref. The Nature of Viruses, 1956, Little Brown & Co.]
*
From the same publication, Sweden’s polio researcher Sven Gard wrote, “The question of the kinetics of chemical virus inactivation has become a problem of more than academic interest after the occurrance in the USA of inoculation poliomyelitis in children vaccinated with formalin-treated virus… Salk (1956) has repeatedly stated that inactivation of polio virus by formaldehyde (F) runs the course of a first order reaction.  At the Third International Poliomyelitis Conference in Rome in 1954 I pointed out that the Swedish observations did not conform with this statement (Gard, 1955). On the contrary, we had found a systematic and consistently reproducible deviation...”  http://polioforever.wordpress.com/polio-vaccine/
   Work on polioviruses helped to prove that intestinal “Enteroviruses can infect all tissues of the human body. The tropism of each virus for certain tissues is not well understood…”. Reconstituting pathogens in the form of gut bacteria and viruses was learned early. Simon Flexner designed experiments in 1897 to alter the properties of harvested human colon bacilli and turn them virulent several years before he became the director of the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research. Flexner’s cadavers in 1890s Baltimore, taken to the labs of the newly medicalized Johns Hopkins University, were mostly victims of pneumonia and influenza, a ready surfeit of bodies that littered the northern port cities of industrial America.  http://jenniferlake.wordpress.com/2009/07/30/enter-o-viruses/
*
Dr. Nancy Banks writes in AIDS, Opium, Diamonds and Empire on cancer and AIDS, ..”new research suggests that ..[what] may be the primary cause of malignant growth..[is] the reduced efficiency of mitochondrial energy conversion as the result of oxidative/nitrosative stress… What is becoming imminently more difficult to suppress is the evidence that impaired mitochondrial metabolism, and specifically the Krebs cycle activity, may promote malignant growth… People diagnosed with AIDS are in a hypercatabolic low oxygen state where the body becomes exhausted in attempting to repair itself.” As she explains, “no virus need apply”. [p58]
… “There is no scientific data validating the contention that what is currently referred to as HIV is, in fact, a virus! …The goal was perception management… [and] the proteins claimed to be specific for HIV are universally present in everyone.” [pp306-308]
… Dr. Banks treats readers to a quote from Peter Duesberg: “Even very few oncogenic retroviruses –those endowed with cancer genes– hardly play a role as carcinogens for two reasons. First, viral cancer genes accidentally acquired are never kept by retroviruses after they are generated because they are entirely useless to the virus… Second, even if a rare oncogenic retrovirus infects an immunocompetent animal, a small tumor will appear within days after the infection, only to disappear again as the animal develops antiviral immunity. Antiviral immunity kills both the virus and all virus-infected cells.” [p54, AIDS, Opium, Diamonds and Empire] http://jenniferlake.wordpress.com/2011/01/05/immortal-cancer/
*
   So all is not peace and harmony in the Disease Continuum. But we should remember the words of H.R. Shepherd, 1993 founding chairman of the Sabin Vaccine Institute:  “Vaccines are the most powerful tool available to equalize the health of human beings in every corner of the world. Enlightened leaders understand the power of vaccines to help bring peace and opportunity to the most troubled places…” http://polioforever.wordpress.com/sabin-vaccine-institute/
   No story of great or worldly achievement in the 20th century seems complete or soluble without a reconciliation to public medicine. It electrifies the most compelling events of our time like the JFK assassination. http://jenniferlake.wordpress.com/2011/11/06/the-jfk-conspiracy-con/
   Edward Mandell House, the intimate alter-ego and adviser to Woodrow Wilson, was reputed to have said (prior to WWI), “Very soon, every American will be required to register their biological property in a national system designed to keep track of the people… They will be our chattel… stripped of their rights and given a commercial value…”
   Without this knowledge can we know anything about the new designs of peace and opportunity planned for the 21st?
 As is my recent posting custom, this article is going to grow long and thick expositioning currents of power and change in the methods of modern disease.

“Throughout history, infectious diseases have killed more soldiers than have weapons… It has always been very hazardous to be a soldier.. but in recent decades the greatest risk seems to be carried by civilians… In 1993, the World Bank provided one of the first attempts to combine both death and suffering into a single number to represent the burden of disease (Disability Adjusted Life Years, or DALYs)… They found in 1990 a total of 1.4 billion DALYs lost in the world. Twenty-four different conditions each accounted for more than one percent of that total. Five of these 24 conditions involved violence: automobile injuries, falls, homicide, suicide, and war… The five violence conditions were second only to respiratory diseases..” –pages 4-5, War and Public Health, 1997, editors Barry S. Levy and Victor W. Sidel
So, there’s your commercial value –the unit measure of productivity representing your (everyone’s) worth.

INFLUENZA, notoriously lethal as the 1918 Spanish Flu, became a very interesting disease in the pandemic of 1889-1893, known as the Russian Flu: “The pandemic spread rapidly, taking only 4 months to circumnavigate the planet, peaking in the United States 70 days after the original peak in St. Petersburg.” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20421481
An 18 page document describing the collective experiences of doctors with 6,000 Philadelphia patients notes that “The most important symptoms were undoubtedly those connected with the nervous system, and it is a serious question whether all the symptoms were not due primarily to derangement of that system.” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2526633/?page=2
…”The duration varied from one week to three months of more…The sputum..was frequently noticed to be quite black from minute particles resembling soot or coal dust… Insane ideas were acknowledged by many…Fear of going crazy was excessively frequent… Vertigo was common… Violent headache..often continued for months… Cases which were left with local or general paralysis were subject as a premonitory symptom to exceptionally violent headache… Sight was often temporarily lost… We noted numbness of the limbs… A sudden loss of power in the limbs was sometimes an initial symptom… In many cases power was lost for long periods– ten months or a year, and sometimes it seems, permanently… For months after apparent recovery, fatigue or exposure would bring on exhaustion… Sustained thought was often utterly impossible… in effort there was a sudden slowing down of the heart… Heart-failure caused most of the deaths in the earlier part of the first year’s epidemic… The influenza type seemed to be stamped upon all diseases, modified them, and caused confusion in diagnosis… In what light are we to regard the persistent occurrance of innumerable paralyses of involuntary muscles? The list is too full to be accidental –bronchial, vesicular, ocular, intercostal, cardiac, gastric, biliary, hepatic, vascular, intestinal and rectal. These occur at once to the mind, and do they not indicate some disorder, some disarrangement, some alteration or possession of the nerve-centres and nerve-trunks concerned in the vital processes of the economy?” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2526633/?page=17
   Spanish Flu was another complex of neurological, hemorrhagic, and mixed illnesses confounded in wartime with lingering and permanent disabilities in survivors. I wrote of it here http://jenniferlake.wordpress.com/2009/07/18/tracking-the-spanish-flu/ as an additional consequence of nitrate toxicosis, opening material for this blog as the H1N1 was advancing. My look back in history then, at influenza, was also looking like polio and AIDS moreso than any respiratory disease. Spanish Flu was a special case, rather a complicated set of conditions, and could not be a beginning for the “DC” but its extension. The pandemic of 1889, however, distinguishes itself with consistency as a conumdrum of “confusion in diagnosis”. The Philadelphians wrote, “The initial nasal cartarrh so associated with the name of influenza as to be popularly synonymous with it, often failed to appear early and was manifested later amid other affectations… vertigo and unsteady gait [was how] some cases began their attacks (in the first year) and in relapses these symptoms were often forerunners of renewed attack… The influenzal poison, whatever its nature, exhibits in protracted cases a likeness to malarial poisoning in symptoms and length of duration… The most severe and protracted cases were generally in the educated classes… Influenza cannot be a filth disease, as its initial outbreak was among the wealthy rather than the poor.
   Suggestive of something malaria-like, the Pennsylvania doctors concluded uncertainly that they were dealing with a bloodborne agent vectored similarly (by mosquitos) in a fashion of today’s West Nile Virus. Interest in the Russian Flu has revived since 2009 “reinforced by..the work of French epidemiologist Alain-Jacques Valleron from the Institut National de la Sante et de la Recherche Medicale in Paris.” http://www.elementshealthspace.com/2010/06/03/the-russian-pandemic-of-1889-and-the-h1n1-pandemic-of-200910/  Valleron’s research is visualized in a short (and silent) video clip displaying a progressive ground-zero approach to the spread of 1889 Russian Flu: http://212.193.9.230/import/2010_50_Id_en/file049.pdf
   What is most interesting to me about the flu pandemic is that it followed so closely on the heels of the world’s first major polio epidemics in Sweden, which occurred in Stockholm shortly after modern vaccination practices came into being. Vaccination’s foremost advocate, Pasteur, found an institutional home in Paris during 1887-1888 with an international cast of fellows and more interesting still, the first credited scientist to isolate virus with disease-transmitting filtrate, Dimitri Ivanovsky, joined the University of St. Petersburg in 1887. By 1892, botanist Ivanovsky had proved his transmissable”virus” theory with the Tobacco Mosaic Virus, marking the birth of virology in history.
   The next year, 1893, with the Russian Flu still circulating, the United States had its first recorded outbreaks of epidemic polio.
*
POLIO (poliomyelitis) was a bugaboo of unknown causes when it emerged in the 19th century, called infantile paralysis for its most recognizable signs as a children’s disease. In this “golden age” of medicine (referring to the next link), a sparse timeline which appears dedicated to polio demonstrates the importance attached to it, retrospectively.
   “Confusion in diagnosis”, however, is polio’s outstanding historical feature. Even as late as the public distribution of Salk’s polio vaccine (the IPV) in 1955, polio was often diagnosed as grippe –the French-language equivalent of influenza– with significant intestinal involvement. Albert Sabin proved in 1947 that (enough) polioviruses caused grippe. For the longest time what could not be proven was that polioviruses caused polio.
   Researcher/author Jim West writes, “Mainstream science admits that most viruses are harmless, yet the word “virus ” adds to a biased and highly promoted language of fear regarding natureearly virus studies considered virus filtrates to be a poison… My site has several articles by the Nobel Laureate Alexis Carrel regarding injections of highly dilute poisons, similar to formaldehyde in Salk vaccine, which was 1:4000 concentration. Carrel injected carcinogens at 1:5000 to 1:250000 and caused reliably, cancer in chickens… Central nervous system diseases other than polio continue in the U.S. and throughout the world: acute flaccid paralysis, chronic fatigue syndrome, encephalitis, meningitis, muscular sclerosis… The unique correlations between CNS disease and CNS toxins present a variety of research opportunities not only in medical science, but political science, philosophy, media studies, psychology, and sociology.http://www.whale.to/a/west_h.html
   Mr. West’s well made and far-reaching point, unfortunately, is just not far-reaching enough. Janine Roberts, too, followed the West path, augmenting the polio resources and writing, “I had begun my research by looking at the many contaminants in the vaccine, but finally was forced to conclude: 1) that polio..was not primarily caused by the nominated ‘poliovirus’ –but primarily by human environmental pollution, particularly..insecticides… 2) that the disease was not stopped by the vaccine, but many cases were deliberately hidden by relabelling it –this led to the vaccine being attributed with a fictitious victory…[and]… 3) that polio might well be curable –if it is treated as a toxin-caused disease.” http://www.sparks-of-light.org/poliomyth.html  Broadly speaking, all diseases not classed as genetic in origin are toxin-caused. The statements above are a benign way of not being wrong but they’re also a clever way of not being forthright. Perhaps for some researchers it’s a beginning –not my beginning– that ‘settles’ prematurely.
*
The first recorded U.S. outbreak was in 1841 in West Feliciana, Louisiana (10 cases, no deaths). There was a half-century gap until the next cluster, in 1893 in Boston (26 cases, no deaths). Then, in 1894, came what is widely regarded as the first major epidemic, in Rutland and Proctor, Vermont (132 cases, 18 deaths). Thirty more outbreaks – from such seemingly disparate locations as Oceana County, Michigan, and California’s Napa Valley — were reported in the United States through 1909. The worst by far was New York in 1907, with 2,500 cases and a five percent mortality rate, a harbinger of the 1916 epidemic… Setting aside for now the 1841 Louisiana outbreak, reported retrospectively, something seems to have happened around 1890 to launch The Age of Polio in the United States. And something else must have changed around the end of World War II to create the large modern epidemics seared into the minds of older Americans, thousands of whom are poliomyelitis survivors and almost all of whom know someone who was afflicted.” http://www.ageofautism.com/2011/09/the-age-of-polio-how-an-old-virus-and-new-toxins-triggered-a-man-made-epidemic-1.html
  The authors and editors of ‘age of autism’, Dan Olmstead and Mark Blaxill, cite West and Roberts in an exemplary description of early pesticide-caused polio (from 1893 onwards, incriminating the poisons arsenic, lead, mercury and DDT) and then appear to lose track of the subject –polio– and follow pesticides, venturing conclusions that neither West nor Roberts suggest: “To summarize our theory: Polio is a virus, contagious like all viruses… When it is introduced into the human body, it has the capacity to enter the nervous system when nerves are damaged. Damage can occur many ways: mechanically through needle puncture or surgery, or, we propose, biochemically via pesticidal or other toxic exposure. Once the virus enters the nervous system, it becomes dangerous..[and] spreads through the nervous system via “retrograde axonal transport… lead[ing] to paralysis or death.”
   The failures and limitations of polio researchers presented so far unanimously neglect to actually follow the occurrence of the disease –if they did, they would fall over a body of evidence that associates polio with influenza and the most potent of co-factors that is a cause on its own, radiation. This was my beginning, and it immediately opened not just a door on disease, but a dimension. Welcome to the continuum…

Mysterious Meltdowns

http://www.jimstonefreelance.com/reactorlid.jpg

“…reactor 4 appears to have been blown to pieces as seen in this classified photo The yellow dome which should be sitting on top of reactor 4 can be clearly seen on the wrong side of the containment building. This type of destruction is is indicative of hard weaponry in use; a hydrogen air mix will not do that. Reactors are not made out of tinfoil. On top of this, there was no potential for
an explosion at reactor 4 at all, it had been defueled. SO WHAT, PRAY TELL, BLEW
IT APART? That’s the dirty question no one is asking – how did that happen?”http://www.jimstonefreelance.com/fukushima.html

–just to clear something up, the yellow lid was not blown sideways into place. I expect, if it is a reactor lid,  it’s in its normal position for defueling from other pictures I’ve seen of this reactor type.  There has to be a limit on how much sabotage could have occurred at Fukushima given the major psy-op taking place which must include the radiation releases. At the moment I don’t have any good information about that, just a word: perception.

There are some people finding cause to celebrate:

Message from Barbara Marx Hubbard
“Dearly Beloved Conscious Evolutionaries,
   “As we suffer through the mounting crises in Japan, Libya, the Middle East, and the whole world, it is vital that we place the crises in the context of evolutionary drivers toward what is being born through us. For example, members of the Goi Peace Foundation in Japan sent out a letter to many of us saying that they have decided to invite visionaries, scientists, artists and environmentalists from all over the world to help build a New City that represents a New Civilization. As you know, we have known that ‘Our Crisis is a Birth’. Now I feel the hour of birth is near… I am really thrilled to invite you to enroll in my Agents of Conscious Evolution Training (ACE).. or those who want to embody the principles and practices of conscious evolution and to help form global teams to catalyze the Birth Day celebration on December 22, 2012. Never before..could such an opportunity be offered to us.” http://www.barbaramarxhubbard.com/site/blog/?m=201103
Marx Hubbard had a years-long collaborative partnership with Jonas Salk, ‘spiritualizing’ his concepts of metabiology which carries on as a variety of organizations and projects such as the “Good Ancestor Principle” conference that includes other Salk collaborators and futurists. Vernor Vinge, recently mentioned in TIME magazine, is one of those people. http://www.upliftacademy.org/wiki/index.php?title=GAP2009
Quoting TIME: “The word singularity is borrowed from astrophysics: it refers to a point in space-time –for example, inside a black hole– at which the rules of ordinary physics do not apply. In the 1980s the science-fiction novelist Vernor Vinge attached it to Good’s intelligence-explosion scenario. At a NASA symposium in 1993, Vinge announced that ‘within 30 years, we will have the technological means to create super-human intelligence. Shortly after, the human era will be ended.” http://www.time.com/time/health/article/0,8599,2048138,00.html
Time Cover

Feb.21, 2011, Cover “2045, The Year Man Becomes Immortal” : 2012 to 2045 is 33 years of symbolic fruition (maturity, mastery, etc). What I suppose from playing around with dates and numbers is a heavy cryptic relationship with the meltdown scenario and the Singularity expressed by the Time article, or put in other words, this is the trigger for total bioremediation which will take a full generational course of maturation to complete –a techno-generation. In principle, we’re being served an eviction notice with a grace period, perhaps, to squat in our own flesh until the robocops come.
*
   Going back to the roots, atomic weapons were conceived to be the greatest global threat to humanity –the World War II  “race for the bomb” was a hoax, begun in the 1920s– forcing One Worldism through the ultimate fear of nuclear annihilation. There is virtually no limit to the number of examples that can be drawn to illustrate this reality.  Each step on the way is instructive to comprehending the means of nuclear blackmail. But the component of bioterror, and the medical programs that co-operated with nuclear proliferation, have passed us by. We conveniently believe that flu, polio, AIDS, cancers and many more diseases are viral contagions that can be blamed on social behaviors. It goes unadvertized that flu and polio (renamed and relabeled) are historic radiation illnesses and the vaccines and viruses created in their name have been the means by which the military-medical complex is altering the human genetic code. I believe that “species transformation” is the most precious goal of one-worlders on whatever level their members function, be they “right”, “left”, “libertarian”, “anti-nuclear”, “green”, “peace and justice” or any major politicized movement that involves interacting platforms. The great deception has been to steadily march us toward the same end –our own– no matter which humanitarian efforts we individually support. These are not vague notions but the relentless application of modern economics that pits states (governments and corporations) against people. When such entities are imbued with super-intelligence, or rapacious super-self-interest, they’ll be having us for breakfast as we circulate to the margins of their systems (much as they do now) only with an added peculiar quality of auto-incarceration. Sickness, or the pursuit of wellness, is a proven economic stimulus for the exchange of products and services among the entities.
*
   It’s not possible to reckon the radiation threat from Fukushima due to obstructions of information, but if I had to guess on the trend, I’d say that the northern hemisphere has doubled its “background” without accounting for regional hotspots. Whole-body irradiation translates directly to immunosuppression.

“Fukushima escalates to worse-case possibility — Japan says that nuclear fuel in three reactors has possibly melted through the pressure vessels and accumulated in the outer containment vessels… this melt-through is far worse than a core meltdown and the worst possibility in a nuclear accident…” http://www.abc.net.au/lateline/content/2011/s3239276.htm
*

“The pressure vessel of the No. 1 reactor is now believed to have suffered damage just five hours after the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, contrary to an estimation released by Tepco, which estimated the failure at 15 hours later.  Melt-downs of the fuel in the No. 2 and No. 3 reactors followed over the following days with the molten fuel collecting at the bottom of the pressur vessels before burning through and into the external steel containment vessels.” http://georgewashington2.blogspot.com/2011/06/nuclear-fuel-has-melted-through-base-of.html

                                                    _____________________________________
Yoichi Shimatsu: “On the first day of the Fukushima disaster, Tepco reported that reactors 1, 2 and 6 were operating at the time of the quake and tsunami, and that the other 3 reactors were empty of fuel rods for periodic maintenance… Then reactor 3 blows and burns, and without any correction to the first report, Tepco then says 1, 2 and 3 were operating and the others were down… Then reactor 4 building catches on fire… The fire is so extreme (for depleted uranium) that the reactor is damaged… Next, reactors 4 and 5 are found to be generating hydrogen gas… The presence of a gas build-up indicates that these two reactors contain fuel rods, contrary to Tepco claims. This means reactors 4 and 5 had recently conducted runs or were being prepared for operations of an undetermined (and unreported) nature.
   The other technical mystery is that Tepco engineers suggested that the electric power inside the plant was knocked out by something other than the tsunami. I have pointed to this possibility early on, that the quake and control disruptions could have made the control computers vulnerable to the Stuxnet virus.
   The other possibility to consider is that a high-power electromagnetic event (for example a sudden burst of energy from the release of ionized gases from the de-magnetized laser-plasma process) could have knocked out all electrical systems, similar to how a neutron bomb would incapacitate [a] power system. Very little of this information was recorded in..reports…” http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=24364

 In spite of this news, there are locals in Japan who are not leaving the evacuation zone. Soma is about 20 miles up the coast from the Daiichi plant, and at least one family is staying: “There is not a lot of petrol in the town and many people don’t have enough food, but our house has electricity and water and my grandmother grows rice and vegetables, so we are not worried… I actually think the government has said too much about the danger…” http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/japan/8403538/Japan-nuclear-crisis-family-refuses-to-leave-home-despite-radiation-threat.html
…”radiation leaks at the Fukushima nuclear power plant have forced 80,000 people  living within a 12-mile (20-kilometer) radius of the facility to leave their  homes” http://www.usatoday.com/tech/science/2011-05-21-japan-earthquake-research_n.htm?csp=34news&amp&amp&amp
August 2011: Disturbing updates from the AP newswire say the Japanese government said far too little. A school in Namie, 6 miles from the Daiichi plant, was used as an evacuation center during an intentional release at Fukushima, prior to the explosions. No one warned the 8,000 residents of Namie that TEPCO was venting; “transcripts indicate.. communication breakdowns… The evacuees at shelters.. were not told to move further away until March 16, five days into the crisis… Health officials say they have no plans to prioritize radiation tests of those who were at the school… Most of Namie..has since been declared too dangerous for habitation.”  http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/n/a/2011/08/08/international/i215717D64.DTL
Thousands of people within the evacuation zones were exposed to lethal doses of radioactivity for days on end. Where are those people today?

“Physician and Epidemiologist Say 35% Spike in Infant Mortality in Northwest Cities Since Meltdown Might be the Result of Fallout from Fukushima… eight cities in the northwest U.S. (Boise ID,  Seattle WA, Portland OR, plus the northern California cities of Santa Cruz, Sacramento, San Francisco, San Jose, and Berkeley) reported the following data on deaths among those younger than one year of age: 4 weeks ending March 19, 2011 – 37 deaths (avg. 9.25 per week) [and] 10 weeks ending May 28, 2011 – 125 deaths (avg. 12.50 per week)…” The CDC additionally informs a rate increase from the approx. 7 deaths per 1000, its 2001 figure, as “All years from 2002 to 2007 were higher than the 2001 rate.” http://georgewashington2.blogspot.com/2011/06/physician-and-epidemiologist-say-35.html

The mortality rate covering ’4 weeks to March 19′, obviously doesn’t include Fukushima fallout. Local radioactive environments, which could have been spiking independently, may be getting lost-in-the-stream following March 19:

Idaho, 50 radiation sites: http://www.prop1.org/prop1/radiated/id0rept.htm

California, 163 radiation sites:http://www.prop1.org/prop1/radiated/ca0rept.htm

1999-2001, rate of fetal-infant mortality deaths in the Bay Area:
“Alameda had the highest fetal-infant mortaliy rate of 9.1 per 1000 births (still and live)”
“San Francisco was near the regional mean of 7.7 [infant deaths per 1000 births]
“African Americans..[had] a fetal-infant mortality rate of 16.2 per 1000 –twice as high as all other race categories. The CDC has found similar statistics nationwide..”
Ten year (1992-2001) infant mortality survey, California counties, showing a trending decrease to a low of avg. 7 deaths per 1000. http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/news/infant/countystats?fips=CA025
2002, Seattle and King County infant mortality:
“…all time low rate of 4.5 deaths per 1000…dropped 56 percent since it peaked 20 years ago [10 per 1000]. For the first time, in 2002 Seattle’s infant mortality rate dropped below..the rest of the county… Washington State as a whole reported 5.2 deaths per 1000 births. All of these were well below the United States average of  7 deaths per 1000 births.”…but, “African-Americans [rate of 9.16] and American Indian/Alaska Native mothers reported significantly more ‘stressful life events’..['associated with adverse health outcomes' such as]..racism,..changed residence, had bills they couldn’t pay, lost their job or became homeless, for example.” http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/localnews/2002064782_mortality16m.html
Washington State has not maintained its infant survival. In 2008, the state Nurses Association championed a plea for awareness: “Our pubic health system is at a crisis point…We simply cannot afford any more cuts to..health funding… Washington’s..health system is in jeopardy due to [lack of] funding..[and] deterioration..[i.e] Increased..vaccine preventable disease…Increased rates of communicable disease…increased newborn and infant mortality… the system is grossly inadequate…” http://www.wsna.org/Topics/Public-Health/
   The gutting of public health funding also became acute for state laboratories begining in 2005 as Bird Flu fear and preparedness became a major issue. The systematic unfunding of state health departments is part of the Pandemic Unfolding/GEIS articles in this blog. In 2007 it was widely reported that life expectancy (which includes infant death) in the U.S. dropped from 11th place in the world to 42. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/08/12/AR2007081200113.html
  We can’t rule out local-regional radiation effects until (if, when, if ever) there’s a lot more information. The medical establishment on the whole is geared to disregard radiation damage and there’s no indication of changing its tune.  A traditional indicator of fallout, monitored since the 1950s, is the accumulation in dairy milk. http://blog.alexanderhiggins.com/2011/04/11/japan-nuclear-radiation-hawaii-milk-2033-percent-federal-drinking-water-limits-16130/ ; http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2011/06/14/dairy-farmers-fight-radiation-with-boron.aspx

Fukushima: Faked Quake

 Sendai area, much of which is below sea level
                                                   _________________________________
“..the real seismic data..proves beyond a doubt the quake is not what we were told and was, in fact, an inland 6.8… The Japanese government is going along with the story of a scientifically proven false 9.0…
“Fukushima was impossible…”
http://www.jimstonefreelance.com/fukushima.html
As Jim Stone points out, the tsunami in  and near Sendai slammed into perfectly good buildings that show no earthquake damage. Watch these youtubes again, and notice (1) a person walking on top of a building at risk for being swept away.  How could one of the largest earthquakes in world history leave this area undamaged unless it didn’t really happen?!

In this TV special, “Mega Quake;  Hour That Shook Japan”, 2 minutes and 40 seconds into part 2, an American named Brian Barnes is filming from a car trying to find the road out that leads to high ground. The narrator says they have only seconds left to flee before the tsunami strikes– the view out the windshield shows clean streets and perfect buildings– no broken glass, fallen signs or roof tiles, none at all.  Passersby look nervous and uncomprehending, as Jim Stone suggests, taken by surprise. Notice the very large puddles –the Fukushima site had large puddles too. The region had been saturated with rain. http://www.youtube.com/watchv=vfNwtBUg6FA&feature=related ; minute 14:30 says the Fukushima seawall was 5.7 meters high and “at its highest point, the tsunami reached 38 meters above sea level”, suggesting a wave of ocean water over 32 meters above the seawall crashed into the nukes –at minute 12:07 the image shows cars in the parking lot behind the tower are still neatly parked.

Japan’s Nine-Eleven
I don’t intend here to provide an analysis of events because everything that’s wrong with the quake/tsunami story seems to be built in to the ‘Megaquake’ program, much besides the absence of earthquake damage. The timing offered for the tsunami coming ashore at various locations makes no sense whatsoever, for a quake erupting at 2:45 (14:45) An epicenter 80 miles offshore,
generating a wave at 400 to 500 mph would hit the nearest places in 10-15 minutes. The narration notes a Japanese Coast Guard ship “3 miles” out bobbing over the tsunami and then announces “they have less than 30 minutes before the big waves start to hit” [Coast Guard clip http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/japan/8392419/Footage-of-Japan-tsunami-waves-at-sea-captured-by-Coast-Guard.html; riding over two swells]  –cut to Brian Barnes in Otsuchi, 80 miles north of Sendai, who is fleeing the town at 3:11, “moments before”. A city neighboring Sendai on the coast, Arahama, doesn’t get the wave until 3:55. If we’re to believe this program, then the damaging tsunami appears like many smaller local tsunamis, and we’re only shown “damage” occurring within land-sheltered harbors. Is this a case for Tsunami Bombs as Jim Stone declares? Thing is, Stone never suggests a series of smaller tsunamis and there’s no footage of anything resembling a “peak height of 124 feet” (maybe here http://www.downloadmoviedirect.com/2009/04/09/poseidon/ )
*
Brian Barnes,  the dolphin activist who provided footage of Otsuchi while fleeing by car, it turns out, is an extreme weather storm-chaser. The BBC used Barnes’ and his outfit for a documentary about tornadoes in 2009 saying “Brian has been at the game for years.” I can guess  he’s an expert on radar signatures. http://www.youtube.com/user/stormtours#p/u/3/LwXWrHAq1bg ; He was in Japan representing www.savejapandolphins.org, a project of Earth Island Institute. “Earth Island Institute is an umbrella organization with[sic] has more than 60 projects for the conservation, preservation, and restoration of the Earth.” www.savejapandolphins.org/about-us/  Brian is missing the best tornado season ever  — his company website, www.stormtours.com, is “No longer in business.”
Barnes, and the 5 activists who were with him, were on a mission to film Otsuchi fishing practices –activists from the Sea Shepherd crew had been in the area since late February, about 2 weeks of coming and going –but they couldn’t find their way to the highroad.?? Interesting– He tells his interviewer, “I just felt that it was time to start documenting..” The sensitivity of locals to the Sea Shepherd mission to document dolphin killing concerns a statistic that the catch in  “Iwate Prefecture came to 866 tons in 2009, accounting for more than half of the nation’s total [dolphin] catch of 1,404 tons.”

Barnes never actually mentions his own experience feeling a quake. His first edited words mentioning earthquakes are,”When I went to Japan, I didn’t even think about possible earthquake, I didn’t know a tsunami would happen…”
Water receeding from the porpoise butcher houseOtsuchi tsunami wall in the background
Another account of Otsuchi’s tsunami from a dolphin activist relates “The police, who had taken up a post at the only place we could pass, were frantically motioning for everyone to get through the gates in the tsunami wall. We got through. These walls and gates are massive… They extend high up into the air and rim the entire harbor area of the town… As we were driving along the interior of the wall, the huge gates were being closed… It was not long before the water drained from the harbor and then refilled. We learned from the firemen to expect to see several cycles of this draining and refilling… and all the while afterhocks were happening… [After the high water dragged seaward with debris carrying a woman, the activists attempted a rescue]..We continued to venture out on a seawall that was constantly being exposed and then overtopped by water. It was a gamble..”
“City firemen manually closed the 12 water gates in the port’s tsunami wall…” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C5%8Ctsuchi%2C_Iwate
“It is known that four members of the fire brigade died during the disaster…and it appears that another seven may also be dead because seven more..have not been found… It was the duty of the No.2 branch fire brigade..to close the storm barrier gates when an earthquake struck the region… The earthquake had shut down the power supply therefore the warning system was not functional… the former head of the same branch of the local fire brigade stated that he could hear the bell that Fujio Koshida was ringing in order to warn people.” http://moderntokyotimes.com/2011/03/25/fire-brigade-heroes-of-otsuchi-who-died-during-the-tsunami-in-iwate/
..”apparently the time between the quake and the full-force arrival of the tsunami was longer than reported earlier. There was even time for one of our elderly neighbors to make it to safety walking with her cane… Having been in Otsuchi several times when quakes triggered false tsunami alerts, I fully understand the lack of urgency among those who failed to escape… One of the most haunting accounts came from those who took refuge on top of the..town hall. They watched Fujio Koshita..ring the bell on top of the nearby firehouse until he and the building were swept away. As the warning siren failed to work properly Koshita took it on himself..to warn the town.” http://no1.fccj.ne.jp/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=321:the-perilous-beauty-of-otsuchi&catid=55:tohoku;
*
“The waves hit the eastern coast of Japan about 1.5 hours after the quake… ‘I was actually shocked’ to see all the damage the waves had caused, Barberopoulon told OurAmazingPlanet, because the damage didn’t match up with initial estimates of the earthquake’s magnitude..”
*
A structural engineer, who was driven into Otsuchi in mid-April to survey damage, had this to say about his observations: “During this time, at least in my opinion, one can’t help but develop a further appreciation of an underlying elegant expression of Japanese lifestyle. What you notice is the concept that anything undertaken should always be done with the best effort and utmost precision of execution. When everyone does this, a harmonious mechanism results where everything appears to be just where it ought to be… there appears to be a remarkable lack of graffiti, litter or spiteful vandalism. Our arrival in the tsunami-stricken area of Otsuchi Bay was therefore quite shocking, because in the span of a few seconds, or less than a few hundred meters, the serenity of the scene is utterly transformed into chaos; there is extremely little middle ground between the unaffected and severely damaged zones…  with essentially no exceptions, seawalls were overtopped… Undermining failures have also occurred… In other cases, some concrete gravity seawalls were overturned by the return flow after inundation, rather than by the incoming tsunami… heavy steel gates..seem to have resisted well the incoming flow but not necessarily the outward return flow.” http://www.asce.org/PPLContent.aspx?id=12884906357
“[Scott West] was in..Otsuchi this week when the city was essentially destroyed..Suzanne West said. ‘He said that the gates for blocking tsunami waves were ripped from hinges..’ ” http://myedmondsnews.com/2011/03/edmonds-man-escapes-tsunami-that-devastates-japanese-city/

Sumatra, December 26, 2004, 9.1 earthquake and tsunami, depth of 18.6 miles
Tsunami wave time map:
Banda Aceh witnesses, 155 miles from the epicenter, saw waves they believed were 10 meters high: http://www.abc.net.au/news/newsitems/200412/s1272562.htm
“People [were] standing around or examining the remains of wrecked houses and cracked concrete.. Then suddenly..between 15 and 20 minutes after the quake..a swift powerful wall of water engulfing a busy street, rising to at least the second floor of buildings..” http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2005/01/09/world/main665689.shtml
Comparing the Sumatra tsunami makes the timing in Japan’s ‘Megaquake’ impossible. We’re obviously being treated to a large dose of video fakery.
   For example, one of Brian Barnes’ live-action clips that shows a tree engulfed by rising water also has a pile of flood debris already on its top. Did they run this clip backwards?  While driving the streets of Otsuchi with a soundtrack blaring sirens, a person in the car asks, “Are we hearing sirens?” –someone answers “yes”. They chatter about escaping the tsunami, worried that “bridges might be out” while viewers witness the perfect scene in front of them… All too revealing in the style of 9-11 perception management.
So, is it possible to localize a tsunami?
If a swimming pool model works, the answer is yes. http://video.search.yahoo.com/search/video?p=swimming+pool+earthquake. Did Japan’s seawalls contribute to a swimming pool effect, and were the effects ‘boosted’ from inside those barriers?
  2002 image
The image of the wave crashing into Fukushima, above, was supposedly a “new” release a month after the tsunami –not a lie exactly– since the same angle shot appears in ‘Megaquake’ but shows a definitely much thinner spray and calmer sea — that ‘thin’ image seems to appear only in the broadcast version of ‘Megaquake’, and not in the internet edits that I can link or paste. Either way, a careful look at the site damage confines its perspective to a small area of the first tier platform where 3 white tanks group together, and a patch on the second tier that fits with damage from hard falling water. It clearly doesn’t correspond to the notion that the essential generator buildings were under 15 feet of water. Not that it matters, apparently. Reactor safety features were not dependent on the generators according to Jim Stone who concludes that sabotage is the only way that the Fukushima reactors could have exploded.
   According to this post and the official TEPCO diagram, the flood on the reactor level was 14 to 15 meters deep: http://martynwilliams.posterous.com/tsunami-damage-at-fukushima-daiichi
Compare the wave spray heights with this: www.youtube.com/watch?v=OqGhm8oUYnk&feature=related; or these still photos http://www.lovethesepics.com/2011/04/power-of-the-storm-44-ferocious-waves-attacking-lighthouses/  and it looks like the Daiichi wave video was taken during a storm at some other time. “In 2004, eight cyclones passed over or skirted Japan’s Tohoku region, where the Fukushima Dai-ichi power station is…The earliest was May that year…” http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2011/04/20/MNBP1J4HL5.DTL  For my money, the small leafy trees in the foreground of the power plant tsunami video look more like May than March.

Curiously, following the satellite map down the coast in Fukushima prefecture (south of Minamisoma) shows a very different-looking Daiichi site with an additional ‘dog-leg’ breakwater inside the  large surrounding triangular arms. The shape of the interior ‘box’ breakwater was also changed.  http://www.diddlefinger.com/m/fukushimaken/

Everyone was surprised
The “papers” now coming out on the Tohoku-Oki Quake are writing a new chapter in geophysical science history:
“[It's] not the [quake]size alone that has people worried; it’s the fact that something this size occurred on a segment of fault that we didn’t think was capable of producing a quake of this magnitude (an estimate that has had disastrous consequences at the Fukushima nuclear reactors)…  The initial period of rupture occurred relatively deep under the plate and lasted for up to 40 seconds. That was followed by an extremely brief but violent horizontal rupture as the North American plate released the built-up pressure… This violent horizontal motion was followed by up to a hundred seconds of further deep rupture… [The] horizontal motion was the primary cause of the tsunami, but only provided a portion of the energy released in the quake. Thus, if a quake can generate that sort of motion on its own, then we could see much smaller quakes generating tsunamis that are far larger than we would have predicted… Globally, the quake has also told us that it’s possible for a relatively small fault segment to spawn a giant earthquake. A perspective quotes the US Geological Survey’s David Wald as saying, ‘If you can get a 9 that is this compact, it increases the number of places you can [fit in] a 9 where you may not have expected one.’ So, coastal nations around the globe might want to start re-evaluating the risks they face…”

The Foreshock
“The March 11 earthquake was preceded by a series of large foreshocks over the previous two days, beginning on March 9 with a 7.2 event approximately 40km from the epicenter of the March 11 earthquake, and continuing with another three earthquakes greater than M6 on the same day.” http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eqinthenews/2011/usc0001xgp/#summary
Infrared emissions before the quakes: dense infrared signatures appear near Otsuchi on March 8 and 10 http://www.technologyreview.com/blog/arxiv/files/63290/Tohoku%20earthquake.png
On March 9 a 7.2 hit northeastern Japan: ..”7.2 magnitude has struck off the coast of Japan, shaking buildings in the capital, Tokyo, and triggering a small tsunami…A 60cm (24in) tsunami reached the coastal town of Ofunato, with other towns reporting smaller waves shortly after the quake hit at 1145 (0245 GMT)..so far no reports of damage or injuries..” http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-pacific-12684585; The Sidney Morning Herald reported a near-identical location offshore for the March 9 quake: “The quake hit at 1:54pm about 169 kilometres off the city of Sendai..at a depth of 14 kilometres” http://www.smh.com.au/environment/weather/earthquake-rocks-japan-20110309-1bnif.html?from=smh_sb

What about HAARP –could HAARP have enabled the events of March 9-11? Could the huge circular signature over Otsuchi on March 8 and 10 signal that an infrared-based ground technology exploiting  terahertz frequency was being used? Are there networked, off-grid (and subsurface) weapons that depend on infrared and the presence of HAARP? Read an earlier piece on the Haiti quake: http://jenniferlake.wordpress.com/2010/02/19/haiti-and-haarp/. What caused the strange diagonal pattern seen on the 12th, accompanied by another ‘target’?
Infrared (IR) signatures from previous quakes bear no resemblance to the round target-like images presented to the public in the technologyreview link. Quake radiations are pressure generated, asymetric, and sometimes butterfly-like,  emanating along a fault or fault system. A closer-earth image, provided by NASA,  of thermal IR scanning in India in January 2001 shows one such example (satellites showed intense IR 5 days before the deadly 7.9 Gujarat quake that killed more than 20,000) scroll down to third picture: http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2003/11aug_earthquakes
“Relative to the..8.8 Maule, Chile earthquake, the Tohoku-Oki earthquake was deficient in high-frequency seismic radiation –a difference we attribute to its relative shallow depth.” http://www.sciencemag.org/content/332/6036/1421.full
–Gujarat India was also shallow at 17 kilometers. http://cires.colorado.edu/~bilham/Gujarat2001.html

In 2008, “Minoru Freund, a physicist and director for advanced aerospace materials and devices at Nasa’s Ames Research Center in California, told BBC News: ‘I do believe that we will be able to establish a clear correlation between certain earthquakes and certain pre-earthquake signals, in an unbiased way.’ …the BBC understands that scientists also observed a “huge” signal in the ionosphere before the Magnitude 7.8 earthquake in China on 12 May.
   “Last year, we looked at some fascinating data from the DEMETER spacecraft showing a significant increase in ultra-low frequency radio signals before the magnitude 7 Haiti earthquake in January 2010…” http://www.japanquakereport.com/earthquakes-and-weird-atmospheric-phenomena-which-comes-first-the-chicken-or-the-egg

August’s AUDACIOUS UPDATES with additional programming on the disaster, confirming even more video fakery to further confuse tsunami events, is PBS’s NOVA release of a newly made hour-long documentary in which Otsuchi (pop.18,000) is identifed as Miyako (pop. 52,000) and uses some of the same footage with “special thanks” credit to Brian Barnes. A satellite map pinpoints Miyako up the coast, set deep inside Miyako Bay which opens to the north, away from the traveling direction of the tsunami. http://mapsof.net/miyako . Nova drums up additional experts, such as Roger Bilham of the Univ. of Colorado who states, “Never before have we had such a surplus of data. There are no mysteries in this earthquake. We know exactly what happened.” New sets of facts and obfuscations, not put forward in earlier programs, should really muddle things up. Around minute 32, Nova focuses on a snowy mountain village called Kahoku which had a saltwater lake appear within 24 hours of the first wave, surge from the coast that funneled into a river and traveled several miles uphill to flood out the town. Orientation to Kahoku suggests it’s not far south from Ofunato, yet Kahoku evades a map search.  To make a point, PBS assures us that this tsunami had “no clear pattern to when or where” it struck. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/tsunami/

 Tulane University has created a class around Nova’s production. The webpage states that “despite the fact that a tsunami warning system was in place, the earthquake was so close to the coast that little time was available for people to react.”  http://www.tulane.edu/%7Esanelson/geol204/tsunami.htm

The Fallout Is Coming

Canada’s record of Chernobyl fallout:

“A large number of radionuclides released by the Chernobyl nuclear reactor were detected in air and river water samples collected in the Quebec region of eastern Canada. Analysis of the data supports the view that three waves of airborne radioactivity entered eastern Canada between 6 May 1986 and the end of June 1986. The first two waves would have followed an Arctic route and arrived over Quebec on 6 May and around 14 May respectively. The third wave would have been carried by the prevailing westerly winds across the Pacific Ocean and arrived over Quebec around 25–26 May. On 25 June and thereafter, Chernobyl radioactivity was undetectable in our airfilters but was still being detected in the St Lawrence river in March 1987.” http://www.sciencedirect.com/science?_o … a3f5135048

“How long does it take [before] a contaminated area can be inhabited again?

[Renowned radiation biologist Edmund Lengfelder:] There is a rule of thumb: For a nuclide such as cesium-137, the half-life of 30 years. It takes ten half-lives, so you can populate an area again, making a total of 300 years. But in Japan is still added a difficulty: the nuclear fission process, radioactive substances, it is called the radioactive inventory of a reactor. In a boiling water reactor in Fukushima this inventory is 30 to 40 times as high as in Chernobyl, it can thus escape much more radiation. If we summarize it: In Japan, more people are concerned because the population density is higher than in Chernobyl and there is a higher contamination.” [posted 3-21]  http://enenews.com/fukushima-radioactive-inventory-is-30-to-40-times-as-high-as-in-chernobyl-radiation-expert

Hazards of Low Level Radioactivity www.ratical.org/radiation/HoLLR.html : Dr. Ernest Sternglass explains: “When the radiation from such isotopes as strontium-89 and 90 in the bone marrow mutates an existing virus that invades the T-cells of the immune system and kills them in the process of replication, the stage is set for the complete collapse of the immune defenses, and resulting death from opportunistic infections or cancer.” (“The Implications of Chernobyl for Human Health”, International Journal of Biosocial Research, p. 19, July 1986)

STUXNET computer worm –Fukushima’s smoking gun?

“Never before has a computer virus been able to manipulate devices in the physical world as would human hands. Stuxnet is a computer worm –or virus– that was developed for the purposes of manipulating and sabotaging industrial controls inside factories, power plants and electric utilities that use Siemens SIMATIC, WinCC (Windows) and PCS7 control systems. As such, CNET describes it as ‘the first-ever control system malware’…believed to be industrial espionage of the most sophisticated order… In reality, very little is known for certain about Stuxnet –with its unique ability to subvert every known security system and physically manipulate its surroundings– has ushered humankind into a potentially scary new age where computer viruses can interact with the material world like they own the place.” http://ca.askmen.com/entertainment/special_feature_3800/3806_stuxnet.html

March 12 – News, at this writing, is that the reactor building of Unit 1 has exploded, injuring 4 people. The evacuation area has expanded from a 6-mile to a 12-mile radius. Edwin Lyman of the Union of Concerned Scientists made a statement to CNN that the accident could be “far worse” than expected. By the evidence, a meltdown at Fukushima is underway.
We never get the truth from officials about nuclear accidents. If they admit an accident, they deny the danger, but explosions (venting) and evacuations are nothing less than the minimum requirement of a major accident-in-progress. The mainstream news is already announcing that there is no damage to Japan’s “reactor itself”, contradicting the widespread notice of confirmed melting fuel.

In 1979, Three Mile Island did not explode. We were told there had been a partial meltdown and elevated levels of fallout were not significant enough to cause a public risk, but a group of Japanese visitors who came specifically to learn about TMI found a very different situation. 

Excerpt from the Fallout page, www.polioforever.wordpress.com/fallout/ :

Three Mile Island: The People’s Testament , Aileen M. Smith  March 27, 1989 http://www.tmia.com/node/118

…”Interviewees said on the day of the accident, and for the next couple of days, a powdery ash fell and collected on everything. From the first day, Wednesday March 28, a strong and nauseating metallic taste began affecting them. People and animals stumbled and fell. They felt numbness in their legs and tingling or burning, sometimes a peppery rash. Veterinarian Robert Weber reported in his recollection made in 1982, “Immediately after the accident at TMI, we had many sheep and goats that couldn’t get up. Also, we had troubles with sheep just being found dead. Goats just being found dead…through that summer of 1979.” Weber said there were high numbers of stillbirths and an inability of the pregnant animals to deliver. Local farmers often went through him and filed reports with the Agriculture bureau, only to learn later from officials that no such reports existed. By 1982, he said “Cancer is our big deal now…We are finding the cancers in the uterus, the mammary systems, the lymphatics…I see this curve”.

Betty Fawber said of her animals, “After the accident happened…we’d go up and there’d be chickens that were dead. Just one at a time. Unexplained. We had maybe about six like that…The chickens started dying like that, I’d say, maybe 6 months after the accident…I had two rabbits and one had a litter of 7 bunnies, but they were all born dead. They looked perfect but they were dead.” Betty was sensitive to the ‘venting’, as were others, developing a burning rash on her skin and in her throat and sinuses. She said,” The first year..there were about 47 times when this burning happened….45 times..we accounted [in the newspaper] that they did vent….Last year [1982] sometime..we saw or heard that they were deliberately venting each day”…

Because of the “combined” incomprehensible destruction in Japan, effects like those at TMI will not be observable as radiological hazards. Fallout emanating from Fukushima will be masked by chemical and biological threats which will be enhanced by radiation.
   Published medical studies about enhanced effects from irradiation are ‘clean’ experiments in comparison to the very complex combinations found in fallout, usually performed with x-rays and UV. This link shows how radiation doubles sensitivity to nitric oxide: http://www.mindfully.org/Nucs/Chemical-Nuclear/Nitric-Oxide-Radiosensitivity30nov57.htm  Nitric oxide alone reduced survivor rate by 10%; with added irradiation the rate reduced to 50%www.polioforever.wordpress.com/nitrogen/

President Obama called for the construction of 45 new nuclear power plants. The U.S. is in the midst of an ideological “nuclear renaissance” –officials have every reason NOT to tell us of radioactive fallout danger.  During the 1950s, when “peaceful atoms” were to justify the creation of weapons and usher in the age of global cooperation, an intense climate of suppression and secrecy surrounded the medical findings of scientists. The public propaganda of the Atomic Energy Commission under the leadership of Lewis L. Strauss, gave us the “Sunshine” campaign. In reality, the Health Physics researchers were desperately collecting and arranging new data. www.polioforever.wordpress.com/health-physics/   Dr. John Gofman, former Manhattan Project scientist and Establishment defector, spread the news that the AEC policy stating  “the solution to pollution is dilution” was unofficially official

   During the Chernobyl crisis, there was political currency in reporting a fallout threat, and still the world waited a decade, and longer, to learn more about what happened. Many people have said that the Chernobyl accident forced the USSR into the policy of Glasnost with its neighbors and contributed greatly to the dissolution of the Soviet system. Nuclear accidents are everybody’s business.

The Fukushima explosion http://news.yahoo.com/video/world-15749633/24503911#video=24503626 Special U.S. ‘radiation units’ of the military are en route to Fukushima and they probably have something you don’t have: http://citizen2009.wordpress.com/2010/01/18/anti-radiation-drugs/, developed with Project BioShield funds.

Dr. Edwin Lyman, who made an alarming statement on CNN, Saturday 3-12-11, about an accident-in-progress, is familiar with the Fukushima reactors and the potential for disaster.
   “In 1999, quality data on MOX fuel made by BNFL in Britain for the Japanese..proved to be falsified. Belgonucleaire (BN) in Belgium, which made MOX fuel for the Japanese..is now also accused of falsification of its quality control data. In August 2000 [a coalition] started a court action in the Fukushima District Court seeking an injunction against Tepco… Dr. Koyama stated he found irregularities in four of fourteen MOX fuel assemblies for Fukushima 1-3… A second study was publshed in December 2000.. done by Dr. Edwin Lyman, scientific director for the Nuclear Control Institute (NCI) in Washington D.C…. The report claims that the MOX fuel made by Belgonucleaire for Tepco is tainted. It says the MOX fuel is made in an old facility with poor production and quality control standards, which are even below the standards of BNFL’s old MOX plant at Sellafield…  If Tepco loads MOX fuel in their reactors, it will significantly increase the risks of a nuclear accident with catastrophic effects involving the release of large amounts of deadly plutonium particles into the atmosphere, said Frank Barnaby of the Oxford Research Group, co-author of the study.”
 Did they?
Updated confirmation has come from Japanese authorities that Fukushima is venting.

Rising fallout reaching the jetstreams travels ahead of weather. This map shows windspeeds at 80-100 miles per hour.

‘Air’ distances between the world’s major cities http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/a0759496.html; Tokyo to Los Angeles 5,433 miles;  Fallout in the jetstream can potentially reach the West Coast in as few as  54 hours. This will likely stay aloft for a long time, perhaps years. Lower altitude fallout will travel with the weather.

March 14:  a third blast at the Fukushima plant (No.2) was reported just after 17::00 hours EDT, March 14. The Navy vessel USS Ronald Reagan, 100 miles offshore at Fukushima earlier today was required to move out of the area and discontinue fly-over attempts after 17 crew members aboard helicopters were exposed.

“The blast tore through the unit 2 structure at the Fukushima Daiichi complex and a hole has been found in the container…there is also currently a fire in unit 4 reactor [fuel pool].

“Afer Three Mile Island, strontium was detected 150 miles away from the reactor. That ends up in cows’ milk and doesn’t go away for 300 years. The releases from [Fukushima's] plants will last for a year and will contain elements that will remain in the environment for 300 years even in the best case.” –Arnold Gunderson www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news/business-tech/science/110315/nuclear-expert-fukushima-iodine

(March 15) — Contamination is at dangerous levels locally in Japan with plumes of radiation feeding a fallout cloud that is dispersing whichever way the winds blow. High altitude fallout should already be streaming over North America at low levels. Radioactivity levels will pick up as fallout pushes out of the jetstream and lower altitude currents reach populations on the ground. Americans on the West Coast should take precautions today. Fallout is NOT like a “chest x-ray”–it’s a chemically dirty mix of biologically incompatible radioisotopes, many toxic for days, some for weeks, and others for months and years. Take an appropriate iodine supplement to prevent the uptake of radioactive iodine 131. The best prevention is to limit outdoor activity and wear long pants/sleeves; change and put the clothes in the laundry. Store a drinking water supply for a minimum of 30 days. Stay out of the rain. Curtail or postpone plans for voluntary x-rays or other non-necessary medical proceedures, at least for the coming month and as long as dangerous levels of fallout are emitted, adding 2 weeks. Nuclear fallout is a cumulative poison. Preventing avoidable exposure NOW will help us when exposure and contamination is unavoidable.

Taking iodine: http://www.sharksarepeopletoo.com/iodine/106-iodine-and-radioactive-fallout

Vaccines and antibiotics should particularly be avoided for 30 days following even low-level radiation exposure.

UPDATE: March 16, ..”a surge in radiation made it too dangerous for workers to remain at the facility…’So the workers cannot carry out even minimal work at the plant right now’…Experts say exposure of around 1,000 millisieverts is enough to cause radiation sickness… Officials said they would use helicopters and fire trucks.” http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/as_japan_earthquake

“High radiation levels prevented a helicopter from flying to the site to drop water into the No. 3 reactor to try to cool its fuel rods…The plant operator described No. 3 as the “priority.” No more information was available, but that reactor is the only one at Daiichi which uses plutonium in its fuel mix… water was being poured into reactors No. 5 and 6, indicating the entire six-reactor facility was now at risk of overheating…”This is a slow-moving nightmare,” said Dr Thomas Neff, a physicist and uranium-industry analyst at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.” http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20110316/ts_nm/us_japan_quake

Atomic Power, No Contest

An undying historical controversy is being erected around the confabulous “Race for the Bomb” between the American and Nazi powers of World War II, proving that the weavers of civilization are not done with this story and may never be, in fact, for its life-altering import. It’s not enough that we were sufficiently hoaxed at the time. The continuing aim is to support the enduring sacred cows of racial hatred and human aggression; qualities that root deeply in the circumstances of September 11. We must become true believers in our own nihilistic blindness. The future depends on it, otherwise we would not submit to be changed and made fit for a Golden Age of peace and plenty. When the teachings of the future recall the lessons of the past, they will stand on the record.

James B.Conant, Harvard president and Manhattan Project executive, wrote: [from the biography, James B. Conant, by James Hershberg, pp163-164]
We must consider..what the time schedule of the enemy may be. It is quite possible that the Germans are a year ahead of us, or perhaps have even eighteen months head start… To my mind, it is this fear that the Germans may be near the goal which is the prime reason for an all out effort now on this gamble
[biographer Hershberg] “Conant’s apprehensions reflected his awareness of both the prewar prowess of German physics and a steady stream of ambiguous yet alarming intelligence –circumstantial evidence, snippets of conversations with scientists in Europe who maintained contacts in Germany, worst-case analysis and extrapolation– indicating that  German atomic project might be on the verge of success. Six months earlier, in May [of 1942], he had guessed that the Germans were at most a year ahead. But then, over the summer, for example, prodded by Leo Szilard and other physicists at Chicago, Arthur Compton in great distress had passed [Vannevar] Bush and Conant allegedly “reliable” information that German physicists had successfully achieved a self-sustaining chain reaction, and warned of an imminent threat of a German atomic weapon, either a method for spreading radioactive fission products “in lethal quantities” or a bomb ready for use on Allied targets “in 1943, a year before our bombs are planned to be ready”. Compton urged Bush to step up “sabotage, air, and commando raids” to disrupt the German project, and to step up the pace of U.S. efforts. Cables shot back and forth between Washington and London, with Conant and the British atomic leaders trading rumors about the extent of German progress and showing special concern about the activities of Werner Heisenberg, the renowned physicist said to be heading nuclear efforts at the Kaiser Wilhelm institutes in Berlin-Dahlem.
But in fact, the warnings of a German lead were false, often the product of garbled second- and third-hand conversations embellished by fear: German physicists had indeed been conducting research for the Nazi regime on atomic energy, reporting their results to Albert Speer and other top civilian and military officials, but by the spring of 1942 authorities concluded that the possible military uses were too distant to suit immediate war priorities, and relegated atomic research to a backwater behind other secret weapons projects. Although the motives behind the German physicists’ assessments and ultimate failure remain disputed…by December 1942 the Nazi government had already turned away from a crash program to develop nuclear weapons and the race that so obsessed Conant was essentilly uncontested. Much later, after the war, Conant claimed that he was “never convinced that the Germans were anywhere near getting a bomb”, and spoke rather scornfully of “ghosts that were being seen by some of my scientific friends.”
But that was after-the-fact wisdom: he too, resorted to the argument that the Germans might get the bomb first in order to pressure recalcitrant contractors or scientists, and as he summarized his estimate of the situation to [Leslie] Groves, and then to Bush for transmission to Roosevelt, he certainly seemed to take the fear seriously.”

The Bomb story is usually told against the backdrop of WWII, portrayed as a flukish convergence of ripe scientific knowledge and the dire necessity of acting in a time of great moral danger ; an ingenious response to an accident of fate. But looking at its creators, the scientists who provided the “stream of ..intelligence” to the statesmen, proves a different sort of “inevitability”. We’re reminded today that “science is not the highest value in society”* but for a brief time in history it was, and spectacularly so.
    Niels Bohr, Leo Szilard, and Albert Einstein emerged from the center of this whirlwind as the proper ‘fathers’ of the Bomb who committed themselves to its production more than a decade before its ‘invention’ and use. Szilard even appears to have been willing to stage his own Manhattan Project failing the support of state-sponsorship, enlisting the fundraising acumen of Chaim Weizmann at the University of Manchester in 1936 for his “chain reaction committee”. State sponsorship, however, was a foregone conclusion. Bohr was to say that making the atom bomb would take turning a whole country into a factory. The United States was prepared, only the majority of its citizens and leaders were grossly unaware. The design of key elements of infrastructure essential to the project were tabled in the late 1920s and by 1933 the whole of the machinery began to turn for a nuclear future.
                                                          Niels Bohr
                               Fathers of the Bomb http://pathtoliberty.co/fatherbomb.html
Niels Bohr was a scion of international Jewish bankers who was recognized as the founder of modern physics. An institute was founded for him at the University of Copenhagen c. 1920 by the patronage of the Carlsberg (brewery) and Rockefeller Foundations which became a great crossroads for physical science and philosophy.  In 1922, Bohr won the Nobel Prize and began a life’s mission to forge an “open” world.
   Bohr was nearly the sole source for the infamous “race for the bomb” intelligence and  privy to special knowledge about Werner Heisenberg and most all the scientists in the field.  During the war, Bohr traveled as a self-directed diplomat for the sharing of nuclear technology with the USSR and used his stature and persuasion to plan the international regulation of atomic weapons and energy.
   Bohr traveled back to the US in 1943 to join the Manhattan Project: “The official Los Alamos history reads, ‘..He came at the right moment… the innumerable small problems which confronted the physicists had led them [away] from fundamental problems of the bomb. Study of the fission process had been neglected, obstructing reliable predictions of important phenomena… Bohr’s interest gave rise to new activities.. which cleared up many questions left unanswered before.’ ” [p237, The Deadly Element, by Lennard Bickel, 1979]
                                                             Leo Szilard
Szilard (a.k.a Spitz or Szoldos) was born into an upperclass family of Jewish freemasons living in Hungary. In 1919, he went to study in Berlin and met Albert Einstein for the first time. Szilard and Einstein met again in 1921 Prague, where the two began a long and often “unusual” working relationship. There are no specific public documents to clarify whether Szilard and Einstein achieved a nuclear chain reaction in the 1920s, but there is the appearance of careful omissions and strong probabilities.
   Szilard was drafted in 1933 to administer the international rescuers ‘placement’ of scientists through the auspices of the British Academic Assistance Committee, which enabled approx. 2,000 academics to relocate before the war. In 1938, he came to the U.S. and took an assignment with the ‘reactor’ group that began at Columbia University and moved to Chicago’s “Metallurgical Lab”. The Met Lab became a center of foment for scientific control of the Manhattan Project. Szilard was known to have authored the “Einstein letters” which urged FDR to make the Bomb.
In the post-war, Szilard turned to molecular biology and politics. During the 50s, he helped to shape the Salk Institute and joined its fellowship until his death in 1964.
                                             Albert Einstein
Albert Einstein is dubiously considered the 20th century’s greatest mind. A remarkable feature of his personality was his native instinct to slavishly endow Thought as the highest value in life. In this respect, Einstein was distinctively anti-social, lacking a personal value for ‘socialization’. This required him to deal with social issues as problems of necessity; subjects which seem to have held deep fascination for him.
Embraced within the academic community of Jews and Zionists as he matured, Einstein became an official emissary for the World Zionist Organization, adopting and refining the Jewish value system as his own social outlook. In the arena of worldly politics for which he became a reluctant but high-profile spokesman, Einstein’s fidelity to Zionism remaind steadfast. He accurately discerned the pitfalls of geopolitical statehood for the Jews and maintained his famous ‘internationalism’ as a designated pacifist.
   For the record, Einstein’s contradictory role in world events has been papered over with ambiguity. He identified himself as belonging to a special class within his Jewish ‘nation’ (Zionist) but publicly opposed Israeli statehood on the grounds of the degenerative proscriptions of maintaining a recognizable country which he intuited as anathema and counter-productive to Jewish spirituality, his highest social value. In this manner, Einstein was fundamentally distanced from the Zionist objective to provide and protect a Jewish homeland.
                                                    
It’s imperative for us to appreciate and define the methods of  “distancing” as evidence of pre-planning.
                                                    _________________________________
In his 1991 book, The Samson Option, Seymour Hersh relates a very understated event concerning a recommendation from Albert Einstein to Chaim Weizmann, made while Einstein was teaching at Princeton (A.E. was in residence at the Institute of Advanced Study as of October 1933). Weizmann was looking for a director to run the Daniel Sieff Institute near Tel Aviv which was formally founded in 1934. Einstein recommended Ernst David Bergmann, future father of the Israeli bomb. At that time, writes Hersh, “Bergmann..didn’t get the job for reasons not known.” [footnote, p25]. The text describing Bergmann, however, suggests the reasons pertained to Bergmann’s presence on the faculty at Manchester University,  doing secret defense work for the British while double-timing them making explosives for the Hagannah beginning in 1936. The Zionists, within the decade, launched an “underground war” against the British and Arabs [i.e. bombing the King David Hotel]. Bergmann could hardly have advertized his real loyalties to the Hagannah as a guest “refugee” in England, arranged by Chaim Weizmann. Hersh reports, “Bergmann left England shortly after Germany invaded Poland in the fall of 1939. Weizmann had intervened once again and found him a job with old friends who owned a chemistry laboratory in Philadelphia. It didn’t work out, and another old friend from Germany, Herman Mark, came to his rescue: “He had no space. So we invited him to come to Brooklyn.” Mark had been driven out of Europe in 1938 and ended up doing research for a Canadian paper company in Ontario. By 1940 he was running a laboratory at the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn; two years later he became dean of faculty and turned the institute into a haven for Jewish refugees, including Chaim Weizmann. “The whole gang came to America” said Mark, who, when interviewed for [the Samson Option] was the sole survivor of that period.
With the defeat of Hitler, there was one final migration for Bergmann: to Palestine… Bergmann was Weizmann’s first choice to become director of the institute… Without Bergmann, insisted Herman Mark, there would have been no Israeli bomb: “He was in charge of every kind of nuclear activity in Israel. He was the man who completely understood it [nuclear fission], and then explained it to other people” [said Mark, continuing]..”We were both of the same opinion –that eventually Israel has to be in full cognizance and knowledge of what happens in nuclear physics. Look, a new type of chemical reaction was discovered at Los Alamos. Whether it’s desalination, a power plant, or a bomb makes no difference –it’s still fission.”[pp23-26]
   Neither Seymour Hersh nor his source,  Herman Mark, unsettle the official version of the Bomb’s beginnings. Statements more directly to the point of early development have been uttered by the scientists themselves, such as Edward Teller’s remark from his “Memoirs” about his work with Enrico Fermi in 1932. Teller alludes to the fact that Fermi’s failure to produce chain reaction was due to Fermi’s equations: Fermi “suspected…that he had opened the door to the transuranic elements…He had the right theory but the wrong experimental information. Had he guessed the right result, the hunt for chain reactions would have started sooner.”  http://www.rocfern.com/jennlake/FathersoftheBombPartIIIEnricoFermi.html
Teller edged closely to forbidden disclosures in his autobiography. In particular, he recounted his days as the director of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory where he baldly claims to have authorized secret weapons work in contramand to a nuclear moratorium under the administration of John F. Kennedy. During this same time period, Herman Mark’s son, Hans Mark , was working with Teller at LLNL.
The Samson Option provides a footnote:
[p23] “Herman Mark was ninety-five years old when interviewed in 1990 at his son’s home in Austin, Texas. Hans Mark, then chancellor of the University of Texas, was himself no stranger to the world of intelligence and nuclear weapons. As Air Force secretary, he also wore what is known in the government as a “black hat”: he was the head of the executive committee, or Ex-com, of the National Reconnaisance Office (NRO), a most-secret unit that is responsible for the development, procurement, and targeting of America’s intelligence satellites. As a nuclear physicist, Hans Mark had worked for twelve years beginning in 1955 for the Lawrence Livermore Laboratory in California, one of America’s main nuclear weapons facilities. For four of those years he served as a division leader in experimental physics.”
Herman Mark is the “father of polymer science”, and was a longtime employee of I.G.Farben.
________________________________________
Before World War I, the I.G. Farben consortium was known to Americans as the “Big Six”, known for its chemical trade in coal-tar (aniline) derivatives. Howard Ambruster, author of “Treason’s Peace: German Dyes and American Dupes” insisted that Farben “is and must be recognized as a cabalistic organization which.. operates a far-flung and highly efficient espionnage machine –the ultimate purpose being world conquest– and a world super-state directed by Farben.”
   I.G. Farben and Rockefeller’s Standard Oil struck a major business deal in 1925 to share the proceeds of a new oil hydrogenation process, a deal that was formalized in 1927. Ambruster added, “The list of American corporations involved in the Farben pattern reads like a roster of big business, high finance, and bi-partisan politics in the United States.” He wrote, “..it was apparent that better methods must be devised to disguise the American fronts to which titles to new patents and processes might be safely transferred.”
   Farben was consolidated in 1926 by the Warburgs, and the German chemical business which had been fractured during WWI, regained its American affiliates as a multiplex of drug, dye, and chemical entities:
When World War II began, Farben was not in such complete control of the coal-tar dye industry in the U.S. as its predecessors had been in 1914, but in 1939 Farben’s American drug and dyetstuff affiliates were much more powerful than those ‘Big Six’ agents who had so effectively prevented the establishment of our munitions industry prior to the first World War”…”Farben had crept back through side doors and cellar windows and seized a good half”…”The Oil Industry came next on Farben’s agenda.. [where]new developments..promised to be among the most important munitions of the next war..”
The Standard-Farben/Rockefeller-Warburg conglomerate created by the 1927 alliance became the most powerful industrial cartel in world history. In keeping with Rockefeller policy to establish a concensus-forming “hegemonic bloc”, the uppermost strata of policymakers were energetically aligning the combined purposes of the greater organization, succinctly described in my previous post [Molecular Vision: Rockefeller Science] as the global control of biological destiny.
   The most telling forecast of this epic merger echoes from the person of Colonel Edward Mandell House, who reputedly said to Woodrow Wilson in 1913:
Very soon, every American will be required to register [his] biological property in a national system designed to keep track of the people… By such methodology, we can compel people to submit to our agenda… Every American will be forced to register or suffer being able to work and earn a living. They will be our chattel and we will hold the security interest over them forever by operation of the law merchant… They will be stripped of their rights and given a commercial value… and they will be none the wiser, for not one man in a million could ever figure our plans.” [note here that for the next two decades Eugenics was at its zenith, openly advocated until public awareness and disfavor altered the practices]
   The Rockefeller-Warburg merger then in effect, in 1913, brought about the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank. The Rockefeller Foundation received its Congressional charter in the same year. The 1913 Rockefeller charter is perhaps the strongest signal from history that ‘private sector’ fascist forces were henceforth in charge of America’s civil affairs. Significant institutional partnerships evolved with the U.S. government in the fields of medicine, public health, education and finance and all of these bore enormous “military interest” prior to WWI, the Great War. These were the ‘legal’ channels of operation, however, there were wholly illicit operations underway that depended upon the RF’s international scope of cooperation and the ‘legal’ premises of other nations.
                                                   
Albert Einstein, in an interview to the Niewe Rotterdamsche Courant, July 1921 [sourced from pp3-6 of Einstein's compilation "Ideas and Opinions", Crown Publishers, NY]:
“My First Impressions of the USA –
..What first strikes the visitor with amazement is the superiority of this country in matters of technology and organization… Everything is designed to save human labor. Labor is expensive, because the country is sparsely populated in comparison with its natural resources. The high price of labor was the stimulus which evoked the marvelous development of technical devices and methods of work. The opposite extreme is illustrated by over-populated China or India, where the low price of labor has stood in the way of the development of machinery. Europe is halfway between the two. Once the machine is sufficiently highly developed it becomes cheaper in the end than the cheapest labor. Let the Fascists in Europe.. take heed of this. However, the anxious care with which the United States keep out foreign goods by means of prohibitive tariffs certainly contrasts oddly with the general picture… it is not absolutely certain that every question admits of  rational answer.
…The American lives even more for his goals, for the future, than the European. Life for him is always becoming, never being. In this respect he is even further removed from the Russian and the Asiatic than the European is… [albeit] he is less of an individualist than the European –that is, from the psychological, not the economic, point of view.
More emphasis is laid on the “we” than the “I”… there is much more uniformity both in outlook on life and in moral and esthetic ideas among Americans than among Europeans. This fact is chiefly responsible for America’s economic superiority over Europe. Cooperation and the division of labor develop more easily and with less friction..whether in the factory or the university or in private charity. This social sense may be partly due to the English tradition.
In apparent contradiction to this stands the fact that the activities of the State are relatively restricted as compared with those in Europe. The European is surprised to find the telegraph, the telephone, the railways, and the schools predominantly in private hands. The more social attitude of the individual, which I mentioned just now, makes this possible here. Another consequence of this attitude is that the extremely unequal distribution of property leads to no intolerable hardships. The social conscience of the well-to-do is much more highly developed… public opinion, that all-powerful force, imperiously demands it…[h]ence the most important cultural functions can be left to private enterprise and the part played by government in this country is, comparatively, a very restricted one.
The prestige of government has undoubtedly been lowered considerably by the Prohibition law. For nothing is more destructive of respect for the government and law of the land than passing laws which cannot be enforced. It is an open secret that the dangerous increase in crime in this country is closely connected with this.
There is also another way in which Prohibition, in my opinion, undermines the authority of the government. The public house is a place which gives people the opportunity to exchange views and ideas on public affairs. As far as I can see, such an opportunity is lacking in this country, the result being that the Press, which is mostly controlled by vested interests, has an excessive influence on public opinion.”
_
 
No period in U.S. history appears as socially subversive as Prohibition –in the west, massive fortunes were newly created, ‘old’ colonial trade routes reopened, alcoholism increased dramatically and a staggering criminal counterculture was legitimized. The story of the  immigrant Canadian Bronfman family is a case-in-point, shedding light on a multitude of  “English traditions” that were serviced in those years. On the face of it, the Rockefellers were staunchly allied to the Temperance unions. The U.S. Treasury Dept. became an overtly armed faction of the government while administering, at the same time, the U.S. Public Health Service. More about Prohibition will be linked here, but it suffices to note that Prohibition engendered unprecedented policing by the State,  militarizing civilian infrastructure under deeply polarized conditions which seeded practices of corruption and noncompliance throughout the country, even in small towns and farming regions where ‘alcohol’ was needed for truck and tractor fuel.
Across the Atlantic, WWI’s ruined European economies set a course to rebuild on the new scientific technologies enabled by chemistry and physics. Many of the same pipelines and methods developed by bootleggers for intercontinental transport were exploited for the transfer of technology, making strange bedfellows and enduring relationships among ‘legitimate’ public figures and the underworld.
                                     _____________________________________________
“The Infancy of Particle Accelerators” was a post-WWI phenomenon in Europe led by electrical engineers such as Norway’s Rolf Wideroe who left his testimony about a variety of high-energy experiments going on in the early 1920s. Wideroe remarked on “ray transformers” in Berlin and his encounters in Germany with Leo Szilard and other scientists who struggled in the climate of extreme monetary inflation; “while one U.S.-dollar had been equivalent of 192 marks in January 1922, by the end of 1923 it was about 4,200,000 marks!” http://www-library.desy.de/elbooks/wideroe/WiE-CONT.htm
Scientists and technical students in Germany hung out the ‘for sale’ sign, desperate for sponsorship by industry and eager to accept any form of back-channel funding. Professor Max Born and his friend Einstein, for example, became the out-of-pocket beneficiaries of the American banker Henry Goldman, though this arrangement and many others were quiet assurances that their projects were well protected. The atmosphere, however, forecast that it was up to the world’s monied interests to ‘save science’, as the British founders of the 1933 rescue organization, the AAC, would later say.
   Particle accelerators, which were x-ray machines in principle, allowed experimental physics to advance quickly in the realm of high-energy research. Ernest O. Lawrence, who based his “cyclotron” invention on the previous work of Wideroe, was set up at the University of California Berkeley in 1928 with grants from the Rockefeller-controlled American Chemical Society with the express task of making radiopharmaceuticals. By design, Americans were counted upon to innovate and industrialize the processes of nuclear development. The situation demanded that avenues of exchange be opened for training young scientists and bringing nuclear technology into the United States, all the while quashing homegrown advances. Ironically, Ernest Lawrence did not receive an elite physicist’s education but instead was indoctrinated through the Bohemian Club.
   The Rockefeller Foundation established its International Education Board in 1928 to provide scholarships for the particular purpose of nuclear-chemical training. Abraham Flexner, Rockefeller’s career director of education, frankly recounted in his paper legacy that the Foundation was buying its own science and that the IEB was “not an education board”. Flexner himself personally arranged funds for “Nazi” eugenicists (Emil Aberhalden and Heinrich Poll) and physicists, such as Max Born.
   Born was a teacher of teachers in Gottingen, Einstein’s close lifelong friend, and the supervisor of  ‘atomic spy’ Klaus Fuchs in Scotland. Flexner’s role in preparing the U.S. to become a bomb factory was in the founding of Princeton’s Institute of Advanced Study and the organization of medical facilities that contributed basic experimental research to the Manhattan Project. Medical reseach was Rockefeller’s strong suit, highly organized in the decade before WWI.
   The most critical preparation for the United States to build the Bomb was the cooperative effort with government to provide the electricity to power the huge facilities like DuPont’s Hanford plutonium plant, Oak Ridge Tennessee’s gaseous diffusion operation, and the desert laboratories and testing grounds. Once these plans were secure, the destiny of America unfolded on schedule.

Herbert Hoover, London-based mining engineer and executive, represented the concerted interests of the Rothschilds and Rockefellers in politics. His famed mining career began in the goldfields of western Australia (‘Sons of Gwalia’ gold mine) in 1897 where he also co-founded the Zinc Corporation (Rio-Tinto-Zinc Ltd) in 1905: http://adb.anu.edu.au/biography/hoover-herbert-clark-6729
     Hoover’s career in government began during WWI with an appointment as chief of the Belgian Relief Commission, known as the “food regulator of the world”, Hoover’s role expanded to head the (later) U.S. Food Administration. His close associate on this project was the young Kuhn, Loeb & Co. banker Lewis L. Strauss who simultaneously directed a Rothschild hospital in New York (as of 1917 to 1925), later received an officer’s commission in Naval intelligence (rising to Rear Admiral by WWII, helped create the Office of Naval Research) and also became chief of the Atomic Energy Commission from 1953-58 after a stint as personal Rockefeller family financier. http://polioforever.wordpress.com/lewis-l-strauss/

Hoover was the first ‘scientist’ president of the U.S., serving 1929 to 1933.
Hoover’s official positions in the U.S. Government: http://www.hoover.archives.gov/info/awards.html
In 1931 Bertrand Russell published a statement that “civilization cannot afford to leave administrative control in the hands of those who have no firsthand knowledge of science… Scientific workers must accept responsibility for the control of the forces which have been released by their work. Without their help, efficient administration and a high degree of statesmanship are virtually impossible… In the international sphere [scientific] advisory committees of experts have since the war [WWI] exerted a remarkable influence even when devoid of all legislative authority… the scientific expert can already exert an effective influence when normal administrative effort has failed… [W]elcome signs..now recognized by scientific workers themselves.
…The society of experts which I am imagining will embrace all eminent men of science… It will possess the sole up-to-date armaments, and will be the repository of all new secrets in the art of war. There will therefore be no more war…” [The Scientific Outlook; chapter, The Society of Experts]
“The Hoover Myth, the picture of the great engineer…was built up by one of the most skillful propaganda machines in the history of American politics”…”[L]ittle of the man himself was known. Long periods of his life were utterly blank…His business career and operations were carefully guarded and elaborately obscured.” …”his course on government regulations of utilities has been..devious…concerning the need for control of public utilities..”
In the London business world “Hoover [had] the favorable attention of the Rothschilds who made him director of their firm Rio Tinto. Chairman was Lord Milner, who founded the Round Tables which later became the Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA) and its subsidiary, the Council on Foreign Relations.”
   “In 1916, the promoters of WWI were dismayed when Germany insisted she could not continue in the war because of shortages of food and money”… Warburgs arranged money transfers but “food presented a more difficult problem. It was finally decided to ship it directly to Belgium as ‘relief for the starving Belgians’. The supplies could then be shipped over Rothschild railway lines into Germany. As director for this ‘relief’ operation, the Rothschilds chose Herbert Hoover. His partner in the Belgian Relief Commission was Emile Francqui, chosen by Baron Lambert, head of the Belgian Rothschild family.”
                                                     
Writer Nicholas Faith, author of The Bronfmans [2006], includes a footnote on page 123:
The Bronfmans’ only encounter with a Nazi had been in the early 1930s when they met von Ribbentrop, later Hitler’s foreign minister but then selling champagne..on behalf of his father-in-law. According to Saidye [Samuel Bronfman's wife] their host assured them that when Adolf Hitler came to power they would find that his attacks on the Jews were meant purely for show and would not be carried out in practice.”
Nicholas Faith apparently, included this significant footnote –the only mention of a Nazi anything in the relevant time period, from the 1930s-50s– based on his confidence that readers would supply an orthodox historical context. Huge by implication, however, the subject is avoided to an extent that seems phobic in light of this information. Other Jewish history sources add less overtly to a body of statements that indicate a decade or more of foreknowledge to an impending ‘genocide’:  the Jewish American Hall of Fame, for example, notes that Henrietta Szold, founder of Hadassah, “in 1933, at age 73,..embarked on a major new project rescuing Jewish children from the oncoming Holocaust.”[emphasis added]  www.amuseum.org/jah/virtour/page14.html
*
There is no delicate way to say that without a Holocaust there would have been no race for the Bomb, both of which can now be seen as filled with fictions;  they were necessary counterweights to bring the Bomb into existence. The undoing of one threatens the undoing of the other. I consider it an exceptional intrigue that the  “discredited”  British historian David Irving has been poised as an authority on both subjects!
Irving’s confirmation of the race for an atomic bomb is evident on his website, praising the book “The Virus House” which was drawn primarily on personal interviews and secret papers supplied by atomic physicist Samuel Goudsmit who co-led the USA’s “ALSOS” mission to capture and quarantine Germany’s nuclear scientists at the end of WWII. Irving writes: “My publisher..was eager to publish what I had already assembled.. but I convinced him to let me follow my hunch, that the bulk of the 1943-1945 ALSOS investigation were in the archives of the Atomic Energy Commission at Oak Ridge Tennessee… [my] suppositions proved correct. I stayed for several days as Goudsmit’s guest at Brookhaven Physics Laboratory on Long Island..”. Goudsmit had supplied many of these official documents and he had changed his story a number of times over the years which goes unmentioned by Irving. Originally, Goudsmit held that the Germans were nowhere close to constructing a bomb –a claim that he later reported was made under “pressure”.
Once again, in a familiar pattern of promoting disinformation, Irving’s scholarship supporting the German atomic bomb project  appears like the preplacement of a “taint” on his work, and suggests he may be colluding to bring out “Holocaust denial” in a way that is ultimately desirable to the world’s controllers who wish to purvey the dangerous rising of Neo-nazism. Irving’s theses seem additionally like an advertisement of priorities; the Bomb Race stays intact, and the Jewish Holocaust (much too ingrained to ‘downgrade’ )  is demonstrated by Irving’s example as unlawful to “revise”. Looks like a win-win for guess who? Is David Irving a dupe or a collaborator?
 There is much more to say about the role of Samuel Goudsmit.

…”The story of the bomb begins at the turn of the century. Up through the mid-1920s, physical chemists came to know that both nuclear fusion and a nuclear-fission chain-reaction were possible. It started with chemist Dmitri Mendeleyov’s development of his Periodic Law, continued with the related discoveries of the Curies and their student, the Russian scientific genius Vladimir Vernadsky, the discoveries of Chicago’s William Draper Harkins and of Britain’s Ernest Rutherford…
   “Harkins replicated crucial evidence of stellar thermonuclear fusion in a Wilson chamber in 1915. Rutherford also assembled data (which he was later pressured to suppress) which bore on the matter of fission. During the period 1925-27, Vernadsky established the radiology laboratory in Russia and proposed a mission of developing nuclear fission as a principal source of industrial power… the feasibility of a nuclear-fission chain-reaction was well-known in relevant circles prior to 1938.
   “Nonetheless, the participants in the Solvay Conferences maintained a curious, hysterical denial…”http://members.tripod.com/~american_almanac/larbomb.htm
The Solvay conferences were founded in 1911 Belgium to foster the collaboration of physical-chemists.  http://www.enotes.com/topic/Solvay_Conference
Max Planck, Walther Nernst, Frederick Lindemann (Lord Cherwell) and Ernest Solvay established the first meet at the Hotel Metropole in Brussels.
*
In more contemporary terms, Seymour Hersh described the ‘denial’ phenomenon simply in his indictment of the US government for aiding and abetting the nuclear proliferation that gave Israel the Bomb: “It was as if the White House believed there really were two atoms, one of which was peaceful.” [p132, The Samson Option].
   This ultimate dichotomy of political expression in nuclear issues is the root of “crazymaking” which deprives us all of a sane world to live in, and we are forced to act out the neurotic schisms of those who reached ahead to claim ‘star power’ for themselves. But the desire is an ancient one, cultivated and perpetuated in the Mystery schools that accompany the destiny of Knowing. The Solvay conferences and special institutes replaced the Mysteries.
    In the western “duality” traditions, nurtured since medieval times, we can literally see the parallel of symbolism between “splitting the atom” and splitting humanity carved in full relief on the facade of Notre Dame de Paris. There in the center of the front face, in the Portal of the Last Judgement, are the two figures “Justice” and the “Devil” –blindfolded Justice holds out the scale from which the earth dangles and the Devil beside her lays his hand upon the scale, controlling the balance of the world. The two figures bisect a row of ‘humanity’; the Justice half bowed in the reading of books and the Devil’s half bound in chains held by demons. In this image, then, Justice appears to deliver her half to the control of the demon force, the force of the world. It’s as if they believed there really were two gods, one of which was peaceful. hmm…. Don’t the carvings in Notre Dame sound like the quote above by Wilson’s advisor, Col.E.M. House: “…They will be our chattel and we will hold the security interest over them forever by operation of the law merchant“. ??
As Einstein said, “it is not absolutely certain that every question admits of rational answer” but it was certain that the power unleashed by atomic weapons would force the creation of world government:
…”resistence by the unscientific will be doomed to obvious failure. The society of experts will control propaganda and education. It will teach loyalty to the world government and make nationalism high treason… It is possible that it may invent ingenious ways of concealing its own power, leaving the forms of democracy intact… whatever the outward forms may be. all real power will come to be concentrated in the hands of those who understand the art of scientific manipulation.” [B. Russell, The Scientific Outlook, 1931]

Captain Archibald H.M. Ramsay wrote, in The Nameless War:
If the new-found knowledge of Hitler’s anxiety to preserve the British Empire has come as a surprise recently to many people in [Britain], it must surely have come as a real shock to them to learn that President Roosevelt, on the other hand, was its inveterate enemy; that he was not only a pro-communist of Jewish origin, but that before he brought America into the war he made it clear that he wished to break up the British Empire…
   Mr. Churchill, the self-styled ‘constant architect of the Jews’ future’ now found himself playing second fiddle to an even more trusted architect…  Karl Marx had denounced the Empire long ago, and in the year 1941, it was only foolish opponents of Judaism and Marxism, like Herr Hitler, who were anxious to stand by that Empire because they recognized it as a bulwark of Christian civilisation.
  …I was fully aware that among the agencies both here [in Britain] and abroad which had been actively engaged in promoting bad feeling between Great Britain and Germany, organised Jewry, for obvious reasons, had played a leading part. I knew the U.S.A. to be the headquarters of Jewry, and therefore the real, though not apparent, centre of their activities.
  …the question arises: whom, and which interests did President Roosevelt not betray. To this query I can only see one answer, namely, those people and their interests who planned from the start the use of United States arsenals and Forces to prosecute a war which would annihilate a Europe which had freed itself from Jewish gold and revolutionary control: people who planned to dissolve the British Empire to this end; and to enable the Soviets to ‘bestride Europe like a colossus’ in other words, International Jewry.”
British patriot and parliamentarian Ramsay, who documented the infiltration of Jewish hegemony into the English hierarchy from the time of Cromwell, was arrested and held at Brixton Prison from 1940 to 1944.

Not by chance, the synchronized ascendancy of FDR and Hitler (1933-1945) brought us into the Nuclear Age following the “Miracle Year” of 1932 in physics.  Both leaders embarked on massive “recovery” campaigns of industry and socialization, and likewise  later appear sequestered from the essential progress in physics. In 1936, FDR was assured by Albert Einstein that atomic weapons were “probably impossible” or at least, many decades distant. In three years time (1939), the urgent “letter from Einstein”, penned by Leo Szilard and delivered by Alexander Sachs, insistently pressured for making the Bomb. To this end, the British dispatched a stream of facilitators, scientists and spokesmen who represented the MAUD committee that had proven the feasibility of the weapons. Inappropriate ‘aliens’ under the British flag worked on the project from Canada. It was another chance-less move in the “saving of science” orchestrated by the British.
    The most influential of the 1933 rescue organizations, the U.K.’s  Academic Assistance Council, was founded by the two physicists, Ernest Rutherford and Leo Szilard, and a London School of Economics governor, Lord Beveridge. Szilard, who obtained his AAC position shortly after the Reichstag fire, was brought into London by Frederick Lindemann (the later Lord Cherwell who established the Claredon physics lab at Oxford) and economist Ludwig von Mises. In conjunction with well-endowed relocation organizations and innumerable exigent rescue operations, competent bomb-makers were fanned out to the receiving industrial nations. In the U.S., not merely technical experts, but a “fully articulated” Jewish culture was imported by the exodus –chemists, biologists, engineers, social and political scientists, doctors, lawyers, artists and musicians– forewarned for the arrival of a “million Jews”. The relocation of tens of thousands of academics at this time appears irrefutable, yet no cohesive accounting has been documented. True to the words of Bertrand Russell, America now had its “society of experts”.
   Not by chance, Harvard’s most influential Zionist, Felix Frankfurter, spent the 1933-34 academic year at Oxford as a visiting professor –he was able to visit Palestine and Egypt several times as well. Frankfurter kept an active ‘friendship’ going with Niels Bohr, even during the Manhattan Project years when the chiefs of the project were aware that Frankfurter was getting inside information, yet they failed to either sequester Bohr or bring Frankfurter to account (for spying, many believe), who by then was a Supreme Court Justice (appt in January 1939) http://oasis.lib.harvard.edu/oasis/deliver/~law00106

BOHR and HEISENBERG
What the wartime establishment knew about the race for the bomb came almost exclusively from the word of Niels Bohr as he joined the Manhattan Project along with his son Aage in 1943. Bohr had previously spread the news in January of 1939 that chain-reaction had been accomplished, embarking on a US lecture tour that included Harvard and Columbia Universities before returning to Copenhagen. Bohr’s “closest colleague”, Werner Heisenberg, was also in the US in June/July of 1939 visiting Samuel Goudsmit at the University of Michigan who reputedly tried to influence Heisenberg to stay.
[from "Popularization and People (1911-1962)" by Niels Bohr and Finn Aaserud]
Bohr’s relationship with Heisenberg was special, both personally and scientifically. This comes to expression in particular in Bohr’s New Years greeting to his younger colleague towards the end of 1928: ‘Rarely have I felt myself in more sincere harmony with any other human being, and I still rejoice when I think back on our walks and discussions“. [p116]
   As the memoir explains, Heisenberg was Bohr’s assistant in Copenhagen in the mid-1920s after the departure of Bohr’s longtime helper Hendrik Kramers: “Heisenberg took over his positions..”. Kramers later became the Chairman of the Science Committee for the U.N. Atomic Energy Commission.
*
TELLER and HEISENBERG
[from Edward Teller's Memoirs, 2001]
I do not believe –and there is no evidence that suggests it– that Heisenberg actively pursued research on an atomic bomb [p230] …It is inconceivable to me that Heisenberg would ever have pursued such a purpose. He loved his country, but he hated the Nazis… In 1936, Heisenberg was even attacked in an official Nazi publication as being ‘a white Jew’ and ‘Jewish in character…
   Yet, Heisenberg, still in disfavor and therefore at great personal risk, in 1942 tried to save the parents of Samuel Goudsmit (a Dutch colleague) from deportation to the concentration camps. In 1944, Heisenberg again bravely intervened when the Nazis were about to dismantle Niels Bohr’s Institute and ship the instruments to Germany. Carl Friedrich [von Weizacker], who was very close to Heisenberg, once told me that ‘Heisenberg died without regrets’. To me, that statement makes it clear that Heisenberg never worked for the Nazis in the real sense.
   This story is a different account from the one that Niels Bohr, Heisenberg’s mentor and closest colleague, carried to Los Alamos in 1943. Bohr claimed that Heisenberg visited him in Copenhagen after Denmark had been occupied by the Nazis. Bohr said that Heisenberg had told him that he was working on the bomb for Hitler and considered that a good thing to do. Bohr never moderated or modified his statement.
   Most scientists at Los Alamos and elsewhere in the Western world accepted Bohr’s simple story without question. But I was deeply troubled by it…  I could not imagine that… why, when Heisenberg knew that he himself was under suspicion and that Bohr was in open opposition to the Nazis, did he go to confide in his old friend and mentor? [p232]
   Bohr’s influence in the postwar world did not stop with the damage to Heisenberg’s reputation. Bohr loved paradoxes… Before the end of the war, Bohr had succeeded in telling both Roosevelt and Churchill his ideas about the path the development of nuclear energy should take: ‘Nuclear energy has made war impossible. Work on nuclear energy must be conducted on an international basis and we should begin by sharing all of our knowledge with the Soviets.’ ” [p233]
*
GOUDSMIT and HEISENBERG
A 1953 article in The New Yorker described Heisenberg as an “old friend” to Samuel Goudsmit. Linus Pauling was also a good friend, and all of these men were beneficiaries of Rockefeller funding. [see "Molecular Vision: Rockefeller Science" for more about Pauling and Caltech]. www.newyorker.com/archive/1953/11/07/1953_11_07_047_TNY_CARDS_000240392
 Goudsmit’s turnabout regarding Heisenberg’s role in the German bomb race came after Heisenberg’s death. By that time, Goudsmit had attained the most prestigious positions that a physicist in the US could achieve: he was science chairman of the Brookhaven National Lab and editor-in-chief of the American Physical Society’s journal. The crux of Goudsmit’s revisions suggested that he harbored a personal resentment of Heisenberg for failing to “save” his parents from the Holocaust, but genealogical records indicate that his mother, at least, Marianne Gompers Goudsmit, died in 1939.
   Samuel Abraham Goudsmit received his doctorate in Holland at the University of Leiden in 1927 and within months took a professorship in the USA at the University of Michigan. According to one of his closest graduate students and colleagues, Robert F. Bacher, “Goudsmit had an extraordinary knowledge of what went on… he knew every physicist in the world… [P]eople who were there [at U Michigan] from 1927 to ’30 included Niels Bohr, Paul Ehrenfest, Enrico Fermi, Oppenheimer.. and many others.” www.oralhistories.library.caltech.edu/93/01/OH_Bacher_R.pdf Of these times in academe, Bacher said “everything was changing like mad in physics. In fact, physics in the United States, one could say, went from being sort of third [rate] through being second [rate] to being as good as anyplace over a period of about ten or fifteen years. By the mid-thirties, the physics in the United States was very good.”[oral history, page 10]
   Heisenberg “was a frequent visitor at the Ann Arbor, Michigan summer schools on theoretical physics. During the last of these [June-Aug, 1939] his colleagues in the United States [and Goudsmit in particular] attempted to convince Heisenberg to remain in the U.S. but he refused. Soon after Heisenberg returned to Germany, Hitler unleashed his forces into Poland, touching off World War II.” http://www.aip.org/history/heisenberg/p10.htm
The physicists who gathered in Michigan all seemed to know what was in the offing. A note about their last days together before the outbreak of war is included in the well-aired ‘debate’ between Jeremy Bernstein and Thomas Powers who have a standing argument about how much Heisenberg and his cohorts knew about atomic weaponry:
An amusing story related by Powers:
… In a letter written to me a few years back the Italian physicist Ugo Fano described a party at the Ann Arbor, Michigan, home of Samuel Goudsmit, scientific director of the Alsos mission, in late August 1939. There two Nobel Prize–winning physicists, Werner Heisenberg, soon to return to Germany, and Enrico Fermi, a refugee from Mussolini’s Italy, were both honored guests. “At that party,” Fano writes, “[Edoardo] Amaldi drew me aside to point out its humor: ‘See Fermi, see Heisenberg, sitting in that corner. Everyone in this room expects a big war and the two of them to lead fission work on opposite sides, but nobody says!’” (Letter of September 18, 1993) Within a month Heisenberg had in effect been drafted to do theoretical work on bomb physics and he soon wrote two papers which were the basis of further German research during the war.” http://infoproc.blogspot.com/2009/08/heisenberg-uncertainty.html
   Physicist Edoardo Amaldi, on Fermi’s Italian team until they split up in 1938, said “Goudsmit used to come to Rome almost every year. Goudsmit and Uhlenbeck were both great friends of Fermi”. http://www.aip.org/history/ohlist/4485.html .
   NYU physicist Benjamin Bederson wrote that “at some point during the war [Goudsmit] was placed in charge of the [M.I.T.] Radiation Laboratory document room; that turned into a very important assignment… The “RLE reports” became a primary source for the huge amount of technical information acquired during the war that proved invaluable to American physics..after the war. Towards the end of the war, his career took an unusual and dramatic turn when he was made scientific chief of Alsos… The Alsos mission was to learn of Nazi scientific accomplishments..and, most importantly, of the Nazi progress towards developing nuclear weapons.
   “In fact, Werner Heisenberg actually stayed in Goudsmit’s house on occasion and they had become good personal friends. Thus the choice of Sam for [the Alsos] assignment was a wise one, although he himself claimed not to know how or why he had been selected.” www.prl.aps.org/edannounce/PhysRevLett.101.010002
*
Moe Berg and Alsos
   “By the fall of 1944..intelligence [was]..reasonably confident that Heisenberg was in Hechingen. On December 8, there was word from Bern that Heisenberg was going to give a lecture in Zurich, one in a series arranged by Paul Scherrer. As a result, Morris Berg arrived at the ETH lecture hall on December 18 carrying a gun. His assignment was to listen carefully to Heisenberg..and if he became convinced that the Germans were close to an atomic bomb, Berg was to shoot him while he was still in the auditorium. [p50]. The idea of depriving Heisenberg of his life or liberty was not new. In 1942 refugee scientists Hans Bethe and VictorWeisskopf had proposed kidnapping him, but [Leslie] Groves and [Robert] Furman did not [look] for the right man for the job until 1944… Bringing a gun into a lecture hall and shooting someone was considerably easier. And so, Berg sat..and listened as Heisenberg lectured on..S-matrix theory… Berg’s gun stayed in his pocket.Soon Berg had a second chance… But Hesienberg’s comments [at a dinner party] that the war was lost gave Berg..less of a motive to kill him, even if he had the means and a golden opportunity.” [p51, Spying on the Bomb, by Jeffrey T. Richelson]
polioforever>>> Richelson details the Alsos report from France, recieved a month prior, that Joliet-Curie told them the occupying German scientists who used his lab had no knowledge of making an atomic weapon.
   “Alsos had conclusive proof that the feared German program was actually, in Goudsmit’s words, ‘small-time stuff’. The program clearly had not moved beyond preliminary research, had not produced a chain eaction, and had not discovered an effective means of enriching uranium.” [p59]…[Ten] captured scientists were moved to an estate in the English countryside, Farm Hall, and…microphones would record the astonishment, even disbelief, of Heisenberg and others when they first learned in early August [1945] that the United States and Britain had succeeded in..build[ing] an atomic bomb.”[p61, Spying on the Bomb] http://polioforever.wordpress.com/nelson-a-rockefeller/
*
“There is a little anecdote about Dr. Sam Goudsmit that I would like to tell. As the war was winding down in Europe, the scientists here decided that they would like to know what, if anything, was going on in Germany in th microwave area. They knew, if anything at all was going on, that Heisenberg would have to be involved. This mission, I believe, was under the aegis of the OSRD. They, plus the military, set out to find Heisenberg. They finally found him in a little laboratory tucked away somewhere out of the way. Dr. Goudsmit was to meet with him. Their friendship dated back to Sam’s early days in Germany. As Sam told the story, the military went in ahead of him. Sam thought the military was looking at him a little suspiciously, and he found out why when he got to Heisenberg. There on Heisenberg’s desk was a picture of Heisenberg and Sam with their arms linked.”

FLUORIDE
The pretentions of the scientists, however,  do not hide the activity of early preparations or camouflage the scope of their participation.  In the book “Spying On The Bomb”, author Jeffrey T. Richelson includes a footnote on page 34 taken from a memo concerning detection of the enemy’s atomic activity by monitoring industrial fluoride use. Met Lab physicist Philip Morrison wrote in his memo that “the fundamental special material in the whole process, besides the metal, is probably fluorine. Even metal production depends on fluorine at one step, and almost all separation methods known require the use of uranium hexafluoride”. Memo dated March 16, 1944.
   There is little print given to fluoride history prior to WWII. Even Christopher Bryson’s new classic on the subject,”The Fluoride Deception”, neglects the interwar years but fluorine chemistry registered national interest in the mid-1920s when fluoridation experiments began being widely carried out:
In 1895, Andrew W. Mellon founded ALCOA, and in 1913, created the Mellon Institute of Industrial Research at the University of Pittsburgh, to protect company interests from fluorine emission and other lawsuits. In 1921 he was appointed Secretary of the Treasury, with the U.S. Public Health Service (USPHS) under his control.”
[in 1902, the USPHS was created from the Marine Hospital Service]
…” Funded by Ethyl Corporation, General Electric and DuPont in 1930, the Kettering Laboratory at the University of Cincinnati was organized under the direction of Dr. Robert Kehoe. Kehoe’s laboratory was set up for contract research on chemical hazards in the fluoride industry and for protection against litigation and government restrictions.  …As medical director of the Ethyl Corporation, consultant to the Atomic Energy Commission and the Division of Occupational Medicine of the USPHS, Dr. Kehoe was committed to the suppression of industrial fluoride dangers. By 1931, most of Kettering Laboratory’s facilities were devoted to the study of fluorides.”
The U.S. Public Health Service, which operates only military hospitals, was greatly expanded in 1930 on a wave of new construction. Andrew Mellon fulfilled his oversight of the Treasury in 1932 (physics ‘miracle year’).  Much later, in the postwar , the Mellon-endowed University of Pittsburgh hosted another key operation in the atomic program– the production of Salk polio vaccine.
*
Nuel Pharr Davis (Lawrence and Oppenheimer) wrote in 1968, “By 1949 bomb development at Los Alamos had reached a stage that is still classified and perhaps in some aspects still truly secret.” The Russians tested their first nuke in August of ’49, something not predicted to happen for many years more. Davis, describing the Congressmen who received the details of the USSR’s bomb in secret meetings, added “the news if true confirmed what they had known all along: Security should have been given tighter control over scientists.” [p294]

Particle Accelerator 101

[revised]
In the previous article, I posted an introduction to the strange tale of “Dr. Mary’s Monkey”, a work authored by Ed Haslam who is gaining renown as a JFK assassination researcher. Before crossing paths with Mr. Haslam’s research,
I’d never delved into the JFK murder details, except to maintain a ‘common sense’-based openness regarding the conspiracy. Haslam’s premise is generally acceptable to me, although I’ve been disconcertingly caught up in his presentation of monkey viruses, contaminated polio vaccines, weapons-grade particle accelerators, and a determined effort to skip the fundamentals and insist that AIDS is the whirlwind reaped by a medical Manhattan Project governed by Kennedy’s assassins. 
    Among the questionable suppositions, Mr. Haslam makes a marriage between a secret “cancer” bioweapon, developed for the purpose of targeting Fidel Castro, and a very large “particle accelerator” which he claims was used to mutate cancer viruses at a Public Health hospital in New Orleans. By Haslam’s description, the Louisiana accelerator may have been as large as anything existing at the time in the DoD’s national laboratories.
http://www.dae.gov.in/publ/ebm.pdf [link has a photo of an equivalent-size accelerator, capable of generating up to a 10 MeV electron beam, used for industrial transmutation of materials]
 This poses some immediate concerns about how or why a nuclear device of this magnitude would be used (or needed) in a medical/biological context. Direct biological applications, such as cell mutation are very “low energy”. In fact, table-top x-ray machines have been available and useful for biological research since they were introduced. Common x-ray equipment mutates cells quite well, thankyou very much.
   The story of the mysterious death of Dr. Mary Sherman and her missing arm appears to be subject to added embroidery: as suggested by Mr. Haslam in the audio/video links (previous), Dr. Mary may have been electrocuted or her arm may have been zapped off with a particle beam, but neither killed her. Whatever the circumstances of her death –which came first, the stab wound to her heart or the electrocution?– the cancer conspiracy needs to be looked at separately from the particle accelerator. There can hardly be a more delicate period in the history of nuclear weapons than the early 1960s. The future of the entire program was in jeopardy under JFK’s ‘watch’.
   Medical uses for nuclear technology have been the sole propagandist cause of early proliferation. Fathers of the Bomb, such as Leo Szilard, were supported in hospital laboratories [London, 1933]. Ernest O. Lawrence funded his Berkeley cyclotron work by making commercial radiopharmaceuticals, until the time came when atom bomb cores were needed and the cyclotrons were drafted to make the first plutonium. Is it possible that the New Orleans particle accelerator was an alternate nuclear facility, under the radar of international accountability in the event of limited or total weapons bans? And should we be alarmed that Louisiana’s  “International Trade Mart” associates and political extremists, who had peripheral (or central!) roles in JFK’s murder,  potentially had access to the operators and inner workings of the accelerator?  These are beginner questions in another puzzle presented by Ed Haslam. Sometimes, the storyteller is as interesting and enigmatic as the story he tells….
As Dr. James Fetzer knows it, “anyone who’s trying to fake it is going to give as few details as possible”, and in this case, details on the New Orleans facility appear lacking, except that it was a linear accelerator as Mr. Haslam relates, a point that may be essentially meaningless in this story because of  its many weapons research applications, but distinguishing it as a type used in medicine. What does Jim Fetzer think of Ed Haslam’s work? “Ed Haslam’s entire life prepared him for the study of this case; his father was on the medical faculty at Tulane; he knew Mary Sherman –he sat on her lap as a child; he’s been studying this his entire life. That anyone should denigrate his research is an atrocity because no one’s as comparable to or as good as Ed Haslam’s“. http://radiofetzer.blogspot.com/ (comment is the last minutes of Judyth Vary Baker interview, “Living in Exile”, part II). So while listeners are encouraged by Fetzer to open their minds to Mr. Haslam’s work, it sure sounds like an iron-clad endorsement to snap down again, and as Mrs. Baker says about her own detractors, their “book[s] become more important than the truth”. Disturbing, isn’t it, that a career educator would choose the words of an intellectual bully to promote the uncritical acceptance of a researcher short on evidence? JFK assassination theorists might be partying in the streets over ‘Dr. Mary’s Monkey’, but since it’s updated re-release three years ago, hair-of-the-dog is unlikely to cure the hangover.

I have no issue at this time with the quality of the JFK-specific material and there is no doubt in my mind that simian “cancer” viruses were in the original polio vaccines and that HIV, in a fashion, is an extension of this horrible continuum. But there again is a large and separate subject with legions of expert opponents who document the flaws in the basic paradigm of Germ Theory. Mr. Haslam has done nothing to endanger the central dogma. In fact, I believe he’s furthering the “secret government”, Establishment cause. Since 9-11, that cause appears to me to be the destruction of the United States.   
                                                                                        _____
 The wonder I’m experiencing in this vital ‘JFK’ link to the polio story is based on the facts of Ed Haslam himself who has researched and “lived” with the JFK assassination mystery for most of his life. His recent audio/video interviews are nearly verbatim renditions of the ‘Dr. Mary’s Monkey’ text, and yet the bulk of it was written and published in 1995, so in fifteen years of continued investigation, there is neither a second book (from Ed) nor any substantial embellishment to his original work (I’m told), save the introduction of a witness, Judyth Vary Baker, who allows herself and her version of the evidence to be managed by Ed Haslam.
   Mr. Haslam met Judyth Baker, Lee Oswald’s 1963 girlfriend, through the auspices of a CBS ’60 Minutes’ crew in 2001. He writes that at the time “I was extremely busy doing other things in my profession, and I was not anxious to get drawn back into the story that had dominated so many years of my life.” Can you believe it? The same essential circumstance governed an earlier decision of Mr. Haslam’s to walk away from ‘secret, missing files’ of the murdered FBI accomplice Guy Banister after he actually had the material in his hands. At least twice in Ed’s story, the Golden Goose flew in to nest in his lap and his reaction was ‘shoo’! Unbelievable. The Banister files are still missing (?), but Mrs. Baker is alive and well, “Living In Exile” outside the U.S. in fear of her life. She wants to come home. Maybe Ed Haslam can manage that too someday.
   For the time being, Mr. Haslam has given us the bones of a plot to kill Kennedy, “cure” the cancer epidemic  mistakenly (a-hem!) caused by the worldwide polio vaccines, and create a super-cancer bioweapon with a guarded nuclear particle accelerator stashed in the Infectious Disease Laboratory on the grounds of  the New Orleans Public Health (military) hospital. Haslam writes that he learned of the accelerator through the prodding of his contact, “Dr. X”, who passed on an account of it’s structure from a “Mr. Y”:
 
[Dr. Mary's Monkey, pp 249-251, edited]“Eventually Dr.X got his friend to talk about the accelerators he had built. Finally Mr.Y talked about New Orleans. Here is a summary of what Dr.X said he had been told about the linear particle accelerator project Mr.Y supervised in New Orleans:
–the project was extremely secret. Mr.Y had to sign a secret contract with the government..and he could not disclose the exact location of the accelerator.
–The design..was unusual. Normally an accelerator..for medical use had clinical access features, like ramps..or beds…Here there were none…
–The financing was unusual…the machines were usually purchased on long-term contracts which were paid off over many years. But this case was different, the entire amount (approximately $10,000,000) was paid in advance.
–The method of payment was unusual…five or six checks..within one week. Each check came from a different company and was drawn from a different bank.
–Mr.Y went to New Orleans frequently during the construction..but once it was completed, he did not go back to the site for a long time…When he got there [again], something was obviously wrong. The accelerator building was guarded by soldiers with machine guns.
–Inside the building there were thousands of mice in cages…some kind of vaccine experiments. Dr. Ochsner was in charge. Mr.Y described him as tense and extremely suspicious.” [end excerpt]
   Incidentally, sometime later, Haslam located a “Mr.Z” who had once gotten a look inside the emptied and abandoned Infectious Disease building and testified to the unusual layout of the interior.
 
Chapter 11, called “The Machine”, is complete with a representational graph of a three-story ‘twin’ that stood in Oxford, England, home of the nuclear Clarendon Laboratory founded by physicist Frederick Lindemann (Lord Cherwell), Winston Churchill’s WWII science advisor who recommended ‘carpet-bombing’ German civilians. Cherwell personally recruited “displaced Jewish scholars” contracted out of Germany from 1933 onwards. Oxford’s lab became a center of nuclear warfare research as the British arranged the MAUD committee, architects and advisors of America’s Atom Bomb project.
   Perhaps the supposed “vaccine experiments” seen by Mr.Y and told to Dr.X, are also a cover story, and no good cover story goes to waste. The monkey virus problem was not a secret by 1961. The medical research community knew about it and after the publications in Time (1961-1963), so did an attentive public. The unnatural stress that appears to surround the central ‘medical experiment’ activities of the USPHS particle accelerator just doesn’t fit the ‘vaccine’ circumstance –there were, and still are, much deeper secrets about the polio vaccines and the nature of poliovirus and infection. Ed Haslam’s father, who helmed the New Orleans (polio) Crippled Childrens Hospital as its president, urged his son not to ask questions as a final request before taking his own secret knowledge to the grave. Years earlier, as Ed tells it, he saw his father cry for the only time after the death of Mary Sherman. What could make  a stoic naval Commander cry? Grief over Dr. Sherman’s death as the author implies? –or could it be the frustration of impossible contradictions which one with secret knowledge must live, knowing that time and truth ticks on like a countdown, and no one can ever really be protected.

Polio is provenly caused by x-radiation, fallout and chemicals. My own theory about the polio vaccines is that they were purported to be protective against nuclear fallout and the complex biological damage from those combined sources. Polio research was ‘locked up’ for a half-century at the hands of Simon Flexner and the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research, and in the desperate 11th hour of domestic nuclear bomb testing, for fear of revealing polio’s secret cause, the government sanctioned the hastily concocted IPV, which was both contaminated and ineffective to it’s purpose.  In a parallel situation of “embarassment”, as Ed Haslam says on page 344 explaining the predicament of Bobby Kennedy who ostensibly employed his brother’s assassin caught in a double-cross and was therefore manipulated into going along with the conspiracy to frame Oswald, “It was brilliant planning. The work of professionals. And they got away with murdering…” 
Ed has written something in his last words, finally, that makes sense.

Particle Accelerators
Let’s take a lesson:
 
Basic speeding of particles (in this example, protons with a positive charge) with electromagnetic dipoles http://www.ehow.com/about_6494560_proton-accelerator_.html
 
From the wikipedia :  “Everyday examples of particle accelerators are cathode ray tubes found in television sets and X-ray generators. These low-energy accelerators use a single pair of electrodes with a DC voltage of a few thousand volts between them. In an X-ray generator, the target itself is one of the electrodes. A low-energy particle accelerator called an ion implanter is used in the manufacture of integrated circuits….”
>>> JL: “low-energy” applications, 100,000 up to 10 million volts (megavolts) were the focus of early developers like Charles Lauritsen at Caltech. In a transcript interview from AIP, Lauritsen describes how cancer-therapy-by-particle-beam financed the nuclear physics at the Kellogg Radiation Lab. http://www.aip.org/history/ohlist/4733.html
wiki continues…
“Beams of high-energy particles are useful for both fundamental and applied research in the sciences, and also in many technical and industrial fields unrelated to fundamental research. It has been estimated that there are approximately 26,000 accelerators worldwide. Of these, only ~1% are the research machines with energies above 1 GeV (that are the main focus of this article), ~44% are for radiotherapy, ~41% for ion implantation, ~9% for industrial processing and research, and ~4% for biomedical and other low-energy research…”

wiki on High-energy machines (meaning all accelerators)…
“DC accelerator types capable of accelerating particles to speeds sufficient to cause nuclear reactions are Cockcroft-Walton generators or voltage multipliers, which convert AC to high voltage DC, or Van de Graaff generators that use static electricity carried by belts.

The largest and most powerful particle accelerators, such as the RHIC, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN (which came on-line in mid-November 2009) and the Tevatron, are used for experimental particle physics. Particle accelerators can also produce proton beams, which can produce proton-rich medical or research isotopes asopposed to the neutron-rich ones made in fission reactors; however, recent work has shown how tomake Mo, usually made in reactors, by accelerating isotopes of hydrogen, although this method still requires a reactor to produce tritium.. An example of this type of machine is LANSCE at Los Alamos.

Linear accelerators are also widely used in medicine, for radiotherapy and radiosurgery. Medical grade LINACs accelerate electrons using a klystron and a complex bending magnet arrangement which produces a beam of 6-30 million electron-volt (MeV) energy. The electrons can be used directly or they can be collided with a target to produce a beam of X-rays. The reliability, flexibility and accuracy of the radiation beam produced has largely supplanted the older use of Cobalt-60 therapy as a treatment tool.

…In the circular accelerator, particles move in a circle until they reach sufficient energy. The particle track is typically bent into a circle using electromagnets. The advantage of circular accelerators over linear accelerators (linacs) is that the ring topology allows continuous acceleration, as the particle can transit indefinitely. Another advantage is that a circular accelerator is smaller than a linear accelerator of comparable power (i.e. a linac would have to be extremely long to have the equivalent power of a circular accelerator)….Depending on the energy and the particle being accelerated, circular accelerators suffer a disadvantage in that the particles emit synchrotron radiation. When any charged particle is accelerated, it emits electromagnetic radiation and secondary emissions.

…The earliest circular accelerators were cyclotrons, invented in 1929 by Ernest O. Lawrence at the University of California, Berkeley. [Lawrence did not "invent" them, but perfected a type to his uses]… Cyclotrons are..still useful for lower energy applications….Another type of circular accelerator, invented in 1940 for accelerating electrons, is the Betatron. These machines, like synchrotrons, use a donut-shaped ring magnet…Lawrence’s first cyclotron was a mere 4 inches (100 mm) in diameter. Later he built a machine with a 60 in dia pole face, and planned one with a 184-inch dia, which was, however, taken over for World War II-related work connected with uranium isotope separation; after the war it continued in service for research and medicine over many years.”  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Particle_accelerator

Addendum, December 2010

After WWII, and the limited success of cyclotrons in the making of fissionable bomb material, Ernest O. Lawrence lobbied the Atomic Energy Committee to build the largest linear accelerator conceived to date. He called it, deceptively, the Materials Testing Accelerator (M.T.A.) which began construction near Berkeley, CA in 1947. The purpose of the M.T.A. was to produce “substantial quantitites of plutonium” for the U.S. weapons program. “Grotesquely simple to physicists, the thing he had in mind was an outgrowth of [Luis] Alvarez’s new-type linear accelerator. Lawrence said he meant to accelerate many, many protons…hitherto undreamed of, he declared he could add an undreamed-of resource to the country’s nuclear armory.  With them, once he got enough of them, he promised to turn the Oak Ridge waste product, uranium 238, into plutonium.” [p268*] Lawrence anticipated a shortage of domestic uranium and promoted his idea as relief from dependence on foreign ore.

Biographer Nuel Pharr Davis* described the M.T.A. as a vacuum chamber fifty feet high and one hundred feet long. Physicist Hans Bethe said it was “a very ill-conceived thing” [p269, *Lawrence and Oppenheimer], presumably poorly-timed politically and technically ahead of its time. Davis wrote in the footnote on page 271, quoting “While the M.T.A. was a technical engineering monstrosity, it did not defy the laws of physics….[ Davis's source said]…[A] serious proposal is that of the Canadians who are designing a linear accelerator whose beam power is within a factor of 5 to 10 as that of the M.T.A. By 1980 we can build the equivalent of the M.T.A. if anybody wants it…The biggest problem yet to be solved [in 1968] is not the accelerator, or the ion source, but the target end.” 

Lawrence “forced the Atomic Energy Commission to sign a contract putting Standard Oil Development Corporation at his disposal. Near Livermore..a new laboratory arose at his bidding. There in a block-long building his scientists and Standard Oil’s constructed the M.T.A…[the] work ran on into 1950. Scenes worthy of science fiction took place inside the five-story vacuum chamber. Mostly Lawrence vaporized man-size copper bus bars in an effort to make them carry impossible voltages. Once for two whole hours he actually got the M.T.A. to produce a working beam. It merely melted down a succession of targets; no cooling arrangements could be devised to make them stand up long enough to undergo any significant transmutation… By the end of the second hour, the M.T.A. had burned itself out” [page 271]…” ‘Lawrence had no trouble with his health until the M.T.A. broke down’ says Carroll Mills…Lawrence’s trouble took the form of ulcerative colitis.” [p272]

The Battle of Chernobyl

Watch the film

http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/the-battle-of-chernobyl/

____

“The Battle of Chernobyl” is a Controlled Message, similar to the “DoE Openness Project” which was begun in 1994 after the coverup of human radiation experiments was exposed to the public. While telling the story of what happened at the Chernobyl plant in the aftermath of the explosion, the scope of the documentary is narrow enough to encapsulate the event in a construct of time-and-place that continues to minimize the “lesson” of Chernobyl –paraphrasing: we woke a monster, endured its rampage, and put it back to sleep knowing someday it will awaken again.
An interview segment with Gorbachev, who led the USSR into the policy of Glasnost (openness) as a direct result of the disaster, is heard saying that the international community must come together and cooperate in creating new and safer sources of energy. These are the same approximate words of the internationalists who literally created nuclear power in the first place! They knew in the 1940s that “Chernobyls” would occur. They knew that “containment” was impossible –impossible!! And still they advocated bringing this menace into the world as a means of obtaining the Grand Prize: world government.
The hubris of science and government has changed little. If they ever told us the truth about nuclear accidents and the real dangers of radiation, whole systems would come crashing down, especially that of modern medicine. What we get instead are haunting statements peppered over measured confessions.
    The drama of The Battle of Chernobyl is that only expendable men, by the thousands, could manage the clean-up –robotic machines, too few and expensive presumably, could not hold up in the fatally radioactive environment of the damaged plant. In the film we are treated to images of grainy photos and must imagine that the same volume of disrupting particles that ruins pictures courses through bodies of flesh and blood. And so it does.

Americans today are being told that the region around Chernobyl is recovering with record numbers of thriving wildlife, but things are not what they seem. Just beyond the ‘forbidden zone’, in areas where humans are allowed to live, the photo record tells another story. http://snippits-and-slappits.blogspot.com/2011/04/chernobyl-animals-and-lush-forests.html
In the 1970s, before Three-Mile-Island and “The China Syndrome”, I became personally aware of existing ‘safe’ technologies in the process of being squelched by the corporate energy giants. It was a harbinger of the Energy War to come and a certainty that our destiny was being steered for the maximum benefit of the exploiters.  I think we have a name for the war –Global Climate Change.

SAN ONOFRE: Reactor temporarily shut down after backup generators fail to start

By PAUL SISSON – psisson@nctimes.com | Posted: Monday, December 14, 2009 6:40 pm

Plant operators had to temporarily shut down one of San Onofre Generating Station’s two reactors over the weekend after an emergency generator failed a routine test.

Gil Alexander, a spokesman for Southern California Edison, San Onofre’s majority owner, said Monday that the plant’s Unit 3 reactor was taken off-line at 2 a.m. Saturday when the back-up generators failed to start. A second generator could not be used because it was being repaired.

Generator repairs and testing were completed at around 8 a.m. Saturday and the unit returned to full output, Alexander said.

The incident “posed no risk to public safety,” he said.

Though San Onofre’s nuclear reactors make electricity by heating water and using steam to turn turbines, they still need standard diesel backup generators to provide juice to myriad pumps, valves and other gear that move water through the reactor’s core.

San Onofre usually pulls power off the electrical grid to run that machinery; however, if the plant’s grid connection died, it would need the diesel generators to keep water circulating through the reactor, a process that eventually cools it to a safe temperature.

It was unclear Monday exactly what had caused the back-up generator to fail, but once maintenance was complete on the second, the reactor could be put back into service. A single back-up generator can supply enough power to run the plant in an emergeny, but each reactor at San Onofre has two for redundancy.

It was the maintenance of San Onofre’s backup generators that put Edison under the microscope with Nuclear Regulatory Commission inspectors in August 2008.

An inspection of batteries used to start the generators found that several were connected improperly.

The battery finding led to a special inspection by the commission, which turned up other incidents, including one in which spent nuclear fuel was stored in the wrong location, and brought about several stern public warnings from regulators who said that the plant’s operators have problems spotting and diagnosing minor problems.      [...cont.]
