The world's oceans contain many of naturally occurring radioactive isotopes, as well as the remnants of nuclear weapons testing in the 1950s and 60s. Starting in 2011, fallout, runoff, and continued leaks from the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant added to this baseline and sparked fears of wide-ranging impacts to the marine ecosystem and human health. Despite concerns, there is no U.S. government agency monitoring the spread of low levels of radiation from Fukushima along the West Coast and around the Hawaiian Islands—even though levels are expected to rise over coming years.
Whether you agree with predictions that levels of radiation along the Pacific Coast of North America will be too low to be of human health concern or to impact fisheries and marine life, we can all agree that radiation should be monitored, and we are asking for your help to make that happen.
The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution has both the experience and facilities to monitor and track the spread of radionuclides released from Fukushima in the waters of the Pacific Coast of North America. The Institution and the Center for Marine and Environmental Radiation (CMER) are uniquely equipped to provide consistent, accurate assessment of both natural and manmade radiation in marine samples and is hosting this site to make this information readily available to everyone in a timely manner.

Q&A with Tim Mousseau, College of Arts and Sciences
Biological Sciences professor Timothy Mousseau has made more than 30 trips to the Chernobyl nuclear disaster site in Ukraine since 1999. In the past few years, he has traveled a dozen times to the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear site in Japan to study the aftereffects of that catastrophe.

Biological Sciences professor Timothy Mousseau has made more than 30 trips to the Chernobyl nuclear disaster site in Ukraine since 1999. In the past few years, he has traveled a dozen times to the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear site in Japan to study the aftereffects of that catastrophe. Mousseau, as a part of USC’s Chernobyl Research Initiative, is focused on the health and environmental outcomes of radiation effects in wildlife.

What do you hope comes out of your research?
Initially, our work was motivated by a basic interest in the genetic, ecological and evolutionary consequences of elevated mutation rates in natural populations. The landscape scale of these disasters leads to population and community level impacts that have not been possible to study in the past. Our findings to date suggest that these impacts are significant, widespread and much larger than would have been predicted by conventional laboratory-based approaches to such questions.

For example, recent studies by others suggest that the sensitivities of natural populations in Chernobyl to radiation effects are at least eight-times larger than expected based on the conventional modeling approaches used by most risk analysts. It is too soon to determine how Fukushima will compare, but our preliminary results suggest persistent negative effects for many species with no signs of any positive changes so far.

Some of our latest results from studies of Chernobyl birds suggest that because of the intensity of some of these negative effects, some species are actually adapting by adjusting their allocation of antioxidants in their bodies towards the defense of radiation in ways that have not been observed before. So in many ways, this research is helping to push basic science forward.

What is the goal of your research?
More recently, our goals have expanded to include the development of a better appreciation of the risks and hazards of nuclear accidents for human populations living in these regions. Can the effects observed for plants and animals be extrapolated to predict possible long-term outcomes for people? Humans are just animals, and there is no reason to expect qualitative differences in their responses to mutagens in the environment. Anything we can do to help refine predictions of these risks will be of great interest and potential importance for people living in the face of nuclear hazards.

What’s the latest at the Fukushima site?
We don’t know yet how things are changing at Fukushima. The government there has invested billions into removal of contaminated dirt from towns. It is too early to say if this will have a positive or no effect. It is a big experiment. Certainly there will continue to be significant consequences for the wildlife living in the areas of contamination deemed too high to be worthy of clean up. Actual cleanup is only feasible for the slightly contaminated areas as the best they can do is drop the ambient radiation levels by a half or so. This leaves vast areas that will require decades to centuries before cleanup is feasible.

Is the Fukushima site becoming less dangerous?
A significant part of the initial dispersal of radioactive materials has now dissipated. Perhaps the most dangerous radioisotope was iodine-131, which is extremely dangerous for mammals and can lead to thyroid cancers relatively quickly in exposed populations. More than 9,000 thyroid cancers were reported for Chernobyl victims. Currently it is believed that there are more than 40 cases of thyroid cancer among children who were living in the Fukushima region, a frequency that is believed to be much higher than what would normally be expected. It is still early to say what the final rates will be as such cancers normally have about a five-year latency period, and it has only been three years since the disaster. Fortunately, Iodine-131 has a relatively short half life so pretty much all of it disappeared within months of the disaster. Similarly, many of the other highly radioactive gases dissipated very quickly and are no longer a threat to the people and animals living there.

That said, a massive amount of radioactive cesium, mostly Cs-137 and Cs-134, was also released and they have half-lives of about 30 and two years respectively, and thus are still very much part of the local environment. Most of the ongoing cleanup efforts are aimed at removing these cesium isotopes. Unfortunately, because cesium is water soluble and a potassium analog, it tends to be taken up by plants and redeposited onto the topsoil every fall and so it is not disappearing very quickly. We have now measured radiation levels at 400 locations across Fukushima for four years in a row and after an initial drop, we are now finding that levels have stabilized and may even be increasing in some areas because of movement with water and the effects of plants on redistribution. So the short answer is that although things are much less dangerous now than they were during the weeks and months following the disaster, current conditions are expected to persist for decades to centuries in many areas.

Will the new cover for the Chernobyl reactor site help to alleviate the problems in Ukraine?
The new reactor cover at Chernobyl will certainly reduce the potential impacts of the collapse of the old containment shelter. The concern has been that the reactor contains tons of unspent nuclear fuel, i.e. plutonium and uranium, that is in the form of nano-particles that could be jettisoned into the atmosphere should the old structure collapse, leading to another environmental disaster that could rival the initial explosion in terms of potential health and environmental impacts. Also, it has been impossible to decommission the old reactor as the basement is full of water. The new structure should help to dry out the old building, allowing workers to begin a cleanup of the area. Hence the urgency for the new shelter structure, or safe confinement building as it is called in Ukraine.

When did you first become interested in studying the impact of nuclear fallout?
I first developed an interest in doing research in Chernobyl while on sabbatical in Paris. I wanted to work in a new system — birds — in some unusual places. Many folks have studied how variation in natural selection can drive evolutionary responses in natural systems, but no one had ever looked at how evolution might work along a variably mutagenic landscape such as can be found in Chernobyl and now Fukushima. Also, I had had a long-standing interest in how maternal effects shaped adaptation, and I believed that maternal effects (i.e., things that mothers can do to enhance the survival and success of their offspring) could play a significant role in dealing with the stress of a radioactive environment. So we started studying barn swallows in Chernobyl and Spain.

In summary, what have you found at these sites?
These findings clearly demonstrate landscape-scale individual, population and ecosystem consequences of these nuclear disasters, with many examples of developmental abnormalities and deformities that likely contribute to the depressed abundances and biodiversity seen in radioactive parts of the Chernobyl and Fukushima regions. These findings contrast starkly with the optimistic, unsupported claims made by the United Nation’s Chernobyl Forum and UNSCEAR committees. Continued study will be required to determine not only the time-course for population and community adaptation to this perturbation, but also if and when these regions will ever again be suitable for human habitation.

"Bottom line is the Choice program is broken," Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont., said this month. "We need to fix it and we need to fix it as soon as possible."

Democrats and Republicans are pushing through reforms to the program, which many now admit was hastily passed back in 2014. The law mandated a complicated new health system but gave the VA just 90 days to create it.

The VA turned to outside health care administrators for help, which VA Secretary Bob McDonald says was a primary flaw.

"In my opinion, that was the big mistake with the original Choice act," McDonald told a Senate hearing this month. "We just outsourced customer service to the third-party providers. We would literally just give the veteran a number to call. And that's just not right."

That was the phone number that Small was calling again and again as he tried to get treatment for his chronic pain, which at times drove him into deep depression.

Congress and the VA now agree the system is so confusing that vets, doctors and even the VA itself can't use it well.

Small ran into another problem typical of the program: One of the clinics he had an appointment for stopped accepting Choice patients because the VA has been so slow to reimburse providers.

Choice (#TRIWEST #HEALTHNET #PC3 #VACHOICE #MilitaryVeterans #MedicalHealthInsurance) tried sending him to a clinic that didn't offer the right therapy

The Chernobyl Research Initiative began formal research activities in Ukraine in 2000, Belarus in 2005, and Fukushima, Japan, in July, 2011. To date, the group has conducted more than 35 research expeditions to Chernobyl and 16 expeditions to Fukushima.
USC’s Chernobyl Research Initiative was the first and currently is the only research group to utilize a multidisciplinary approach to address the health and environmental outcomes of radiation effects in free-living natural populations. This has permitted the investigation of both acute (short term) and chronic (long term and multi-generational) exposures.
The Chernobyl Research Initiative is also currently the only research team studying plants and animals in both Chernobyl and Fukushima.
Key funding sources have included the Samuel Freeman Charitable Trust, the CNRS (France), the National Science Foundation, and the National Geographic Society. Subsequently, additional funding sources have included the Civilian Research Development Foundation (CRDF), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Qiagen GmbH, the Fulbright Foundation, the University of South Carolina Office of Research and the College of Arts and Sciences, the Academy of Finland, and gifts from private citizens.
To date, more than 90 scientific publications have resulted from this initiative, most in the past 10 years (see link above for publications). This research has been highlighted in many newspaper reports and television programs including the New York Times, The Economist, Harpers, the BBC, CNN, CBS’s 60 Minutes, and Miles O’Brian of PBS News Hour (see links above for media coverage).
The team has pioneered the use of ecological, genetic and dosimetric technologies in order to unravel the health and environmental consequences of chronic low-dose exposure resulting from the Chernobyl and Fukushima disasters. These have included massively replicated ecological censuses of natural populations of birds, mammals and insects to investigate population and demographic effects; DNA sequencing and genotoxicity testing to assess short and long term genetic damage to individuals living in the wild; and the use of miniature dosimeters attached to wild animals and field measurements of whole body burdens of radioisotopes in birds and mammals to obtain accurate estimates of realized external and internal radiation doses to animals living under natural conditions. Recently, the group has expanded to include epidemiological and genetic studies of human populations (especially children) living in Chernobyl-affected regions of Ukraine.
Key results include the discovery of tumors, cataracts and damaged sperm in birds from high radiation areas of Chernobyl, and impacts on biodiversity in Fukushima. Exciting new results include the discovery that some species of birds may have developed resistance to the effects of radiation and effects on neurological development in small mammals in both Chernobyl and Fukushima.
These two disasters differ in the time since the events, and the amount and diversity of radionuclides that were released, although the predominant source of radiation is cesium-137 in both locations.

We are seeking funding to support the following ongoing and planned future research activities of the Chernobyl + Fukushima Research Initiative:
1)Continued monitoring of Fukushima populations of birds, small mammals, and insects in order to test for changes in population sizes (abundances) and numbers of species (biodiversity) through time.
2)Continued monitoring of barn swallows and rodents (mice and voles) populations for cancers, survival, reproduction, and genetic damage in Fukushima and Chernobyl (in collaboration with the CNRS, France, Rikkyo University, Tokyo, the Wild Bird Society of Japan, the National Institute of Forestry, Japan, and the University of Jyvaskyla, Finland).
3)Initiate a new project to study effects of radiation on tree growth and soil microbial activity in Fukushima (in collaboration with Chubu University, Nagoya, Japan).
4)Initiate a new project to investigate effects of radiation growth, fertility, and genetic damage in cows living in highly radioactive regions of Fukushima (in collaboration with the Fukushima Cattle Ranchers Association).
5)Initiate a new project to examine mutation rates in humans using whole genome DNA sequencing. Initially this project will focus on families living in contaminated regions of Ukraine. The project is in collaboration with the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital at McGill University, the Center of Radiological Research at Columbia University, and the Institute for Radiation Medicine in Kiev, Ukraine.
6)Continued development of new methods for measurement of dose and genetic damage in wild populations of animals.
7)Coordination of an international consortium of independent scientists to provide unbiased evidenced-based information concerning the health and environmental risks related to nuclear accidents. This group will compile, evaluate, and interpret the current scientific and medical literature and develop a literature suitable for public distribution via the print and internet media, as well as public presentations in Japan and internationally.


Highlights from research published by the Chernobyl Research Initiative include the following:
•Population sizes and numbers of species (i.e. biodiversity) of birds, mammals, insects, and spiders are significantly lower in areas of high contamination in Chernobyl.
•For many birds and small mammals, life spans are shorter and fertility is depressed, in areas of high contamination.
•In Fukushima, only birds, butterflies, and cicadas showed significant declines during the first summer following the accident. Other groups were not negatively affected. Now, five years later, effects on birds have increased.
•There is considerable variability among species in their sensitivity to radionuclides. Many species are not affected, and a few species even appear to increase in numbers in areas of high contamination in both Chernobyl and Fukushima, presumably in response to competitive release (i.e. more available food and shelter) and fewer predators.
•Many species show evidence of genetic damage stemming from acute exposures and the differences observed between Fukushima and Chernobyl suggests some species may show the consequences of mutation accumulation over multiple generations.
•Some individuals and species show no evidence of genetic damage in relation to radiation exposure and some even show evidence of evolutionary adaptation to the effects of radiation through increased antioxidant activity, which may provide protection against ionizing radiation.
•The bird species that are most likely to show declines in numbers in response to radiation are those that historically have shown increased mutation rates for other reasons possibly related to DNA repair ability or reduced defenses against oxidative stress.
•Deleterious effects of radiation exposure seen in natural populations in Chernobyl include increased rates of cataracts, tumors, growth abnormalities, deformed sperm, and albinism.
•Neurological development is impacted as evidenced by depressed brain size in both birds and rodents and consequent effects on cognitive ability and survival have been demonstrated in birds.
•Tree growth and microbial decomposition in the soil are also depressed in areas of high radiation.
•In Fukushima, the first signs of developmental abnormalities have been observed in birds in 2013, although significant genetic damage has not yet been documented for birds or rodents.

http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/sah_about.php
SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) is a scientific area whose goal is to detect intelligent life outside Earth.
One approach, known as radio SETI, uses radio telescopes to listen for narrow-bandwidth radio signals from space. Such signals are not known to occur naturally, so a detection would provide evidence of extraterrestrial technology.

In 1995, David Gedye proposed doing radio SETI using a virtual supercomputer composed of large numbers of Internet-connected computers, and he organized the SETI@home project to explore this idea. SETI@home was originally launched in May 1999.

I Love Tripoint Holistic Therapy because it has help me with several undiagnosed illness that several #Gulf War Veterans (Persian Gulf War 1990-1991) PGWV (GWS Gulf War Syndrome / GWI Gulf War Illness) have been suffering from and modern medicine has not been able to help with the pain. My Veterans Administrations Doctor Beatrice Golomb at La Jolla Hospital (and UCSD) has done research of GWI / GWS and she highly recommends treatments of natural remedies, herbs, acupuncture, vitamins CoQ10, Cod Live Oil. A co-worker recommended Geoff Thomas and I like him since he does "Pulse Reading," and works with ancient Chinese herbs which he customizes to my needs. Acupuncture and Suction Cups, massage specifically on tendons, joints, muscles and nerves has help me tremendously to be able to feel better (minimizing fatigue (#Fibro-Fog / #Concentration), #Fibromyalgia, #Energy #Levels, #Oxygen in my blood). I highly recommend Geoff at Tripoint Holistic Therapy!!! To read more about Dr Golomb current GWI / GWS research and volunteers: (Coenzyme Q10 "Jarrow Formulas" 3 veces al dia [ 100mg 3x1]) and Norwegian cod liver made by Carlson lab (TRY TO EAT ORGANIC FOOD (FRUITS VEGETABLES MEATS - free of contaminants).

I have been going to Tropical Star for the last 15 years on and off. Owners and Staff are friendly and the food is great. I like their Colombian dish with Tostones (Patacones -Green Platain), Yuca, Andean Potatoes, Arepa, Chorizo. I like their Bistec (steak with onions, home made (thin-slice) french fries). Empanadas, the South-American Andean Tropical Fruits Smoothies (either with milk or plain water) are sensational to those people with good taste buds and a very eccentric palate. They also sell the concentration/extraction of the fruit's pulp either frozen without sugar or in containers (with sugar) and ready to mix by adding only H2O, milk, almond unsweetened (diamond milk). I highly recommended specially if you are from any Latino American Country and are missing your mother home-cook meals.
