Fukushima Children Thyroid Cancer Rate Continues To Rise

Fukushima prefecture has been conducting regular checkups of over 360,000 people who were in Fukushima in March 2011 and were age 18 or under when the nuclear crisis struck. As WSJ reported in August, a study by researchers in Fukushima prefecture found 57 minors in the prefecture have been diagnosed with thyroid cancer so far and another 46 are showing symptoms that suggest they may also have the disease. Today, as The Japan Times reports, four more children are suspected of suffering from thyroid cancer in the latest survey bringing the total to 107 out of 385,000 now surveyed. This is dramatically higher than the normal “between 5 to 11 cases per million people,” that Okayama University professor Toshihide Tsuda cites for national statistics between 1975 and 2008.

The Nature of Truth

“Freedom had been hunted round the globe; reason was considered as rebellion; and the slavery of fear had made men afraid to think. But such is the irresistible nature of truth, that all it asks, and all it wants, is the liberty of appearing.”  – Thomas Paine

Got Corruption?

Vietnam -Rising Discontent over Corruption

Vietnam-Bankers

The global trend that is brewing against corruption is absolutely everywhere. Vietnam is dealing with rising public anger over corruption that has unfolded in and out of government. Duong Chi Dung (C-front), 56, is the former chairman of Vinalines, and his accomplices stand in the local People’s Court in Hanoi. The top two executives were sentenced to death for embezzlement as authorities try to allay rising public anger over corruption. Where US bankers got bonuses after 2007, the story is very different elsewhere.

FROM THE HALLS OF MONTEZUMA TO THE SHORES OF TRIPOLI

The Marine’s Hymn begins “From the Halls of Montezuma, To the shores of Tripoli.” Yet most people have no idea what Tripoli in Libya has to do with the Marines. American sailors were no longer under British protection after the Revolution and were being captured and sold into slavery by North African pirates from Tripoli. In 1785, pirates from Algiers captured an entire crew from an American merchant ship off the coast of Portugal.

Quoted from Armstrong Economics

Now there’s a historical twist we don’t often hear, that North African pirates made slaves of white American sailors after the American Revolution.

 

 

Is China’s GDP Going to Zero?

China is rapidly approaching ZERO growth. This is not less growth, but
ZERO growth as in full-scale economic collapse from the days of 12% GDP growth
per year.

Chinese growth numbers are manufactured by the Chinese government and have no basis in truth. Over 99% of “analysts” are missing this, but it is a fact.

If that happens, could it mean a resurgence of manufacturing in the USA as Chinese enterprises collapse or quality of manufactured goods plummet due to system collapse?

Fay says:

MADE IN AMERICA could  help bring back the national pride we lost when we sent all our jobs overseas. The environment in the US is ripe for resurgence of American manufacturing. Globally, the US is competitive again. Our falling dollar makes our goods and services cheap to international customers.

Wages are low. Energy costs are low. The cost of money is low. In business school they teach that you only need two out of three of those factors for financial viability. Right now America has all three working for it. It’s time to bring manufacturing home.
