This will clear the way and shake off some cabin fever, monster snow blowers what else is going to throw some snow 50 to 100 yards to clear mountain passes on the rail roads, airports and rural highways but a powerful diesel engine with HP up to 2200, man that's some power and torque. The biggest of this class of snow blowers is the rotary snow plow, a piece of railroad snow fighting equipment. It is characterized by the large circular set of blades some 11 ft in length on its front end that rotate as a unit to cut through the deep snow on the track ahead. The precursor to the rotary snowplow was the wedge snowplow.
The rotary was invented by Toronto, Ontario, Canada dentist J.W. Elliot in 1869. He never built a working model or prototype, although he wanted to. Orange Jull of Orangeville, Ontario, expanded on Elliot's design, building working models he tested with sand. During the winter of 1883–1884, Jull contracted with the Leslie Brothers of Toronto to build a full-size prototype that proved successful. Jull later sold his design rights to Leslie Brothers, who formed the Rotary Steam Shovel Manufacturing Company in Paterson, New Jersey. Leslie Brothers contracted with Cooke Locomotive & Machine Works in Paterson to do the actual construction. Another inventor is said to be Col. Lewis P. Campbell. He is listed in US patent 1848554.
Today we have this beast, 1750 hp and that's just for the rotor!

On this particular mission, the snow-blower's progress is hindered due to the considerable height of the snow wall. The snow-blower actually derailed a couple of times on this strip, which meant a heavy crane had to be brought in so that the train could be put back on tracks - a very difficult and costly operation. Filmed on the Romanian railways, during winter '12.

TV 2200 is the world's largest self-propelled snow blower. The machine has two engines with a total power output of more than 2200 Hp. Made in Norway this massive snow blower is made by Overaasen and it's like the Optimus Prime of snow blowers. These hard winters in the states keep up we'll see this monster on the East coast maybe next year, thanks for the blow Norway!

The networks are crying, FCC is looking at this hard (I'd be careful that would be the last straw) and the truth is easier to come by thanks to hard working folks out there who have had enough. Alternative Media is the largest growing network today and by the looks of things it's taking over the news in which we search. Main stream media have never had this much competition and for good reason, they lied! Because the term "alternative" has connotations of self-marginalization, some media outlets now prefer the term "independent" over "alternative".
Not only is independent reporting more entertaining but it's Joe's like you and me that have made news what society is really made of, time for the adult swim. Christopher Greene is the creator of Alternative Media Television. AMTV "Hard-hitting and in your face!"

With every action there is a reaction, that's science and how we're to understand our building blocks of the Periodic Table.
NDT Resource Center: Nondestructive Testing
In most cases, elements like to have an equal number of protons and neutrons because this makes them the most stable. Stable atoms have a binding energy that is strong enough to hold the protons and neutrons together. Even if an atom has an additional neutron or two it may remain stable. However, an additional neutron or two may upset the binding energy and cause the atom to become unstable. In an unstable atom, the nucleus changes by giving off a neutron to get back to a balanced state. As the unstable nucleus changes, it gives off radiation and is said to be radioactive. Radioactive isotopes are often called radioisotopes.
Also for some good study is Jefferson Lab, let's look at some of the properties of radiation and radioactive material.
Alright that's a great start to understanding the building blocks, kind of like class right and how elements work. I mean this is how we create and how we can dismantle all elements through the use of electrolytic, heat, cold, gases, chemicals, other elements, etc and right down to atom smashing. So man creates Plutonium through Uranium. The nucleus of the U-235 atom comprises 92 protons and 143 neutrons (92 + 143 = 235). When the nucleus of a U-235 atom captures a moving neutron it splits in two (fission) and releases some energy in the form of heat, also two or three additional neutrons are thrown off. If enough of these expelled neutrons cause the nuclei of other U-235 atoms to split, releasing further neutrons, a fission 'chain reaction' can be achieved. When this happens over and over again, many millions of times, a very large amount of heat is produced from a relatively small amount of uranium. (end World Nuclear Association)
Nuclear- Neutralize it!
Now we get to the meat of this post, the toxic waste of nuclear fuel and what to do with it. A wide variety of methods (some have been around 30 yrs already) will probably be required to accommodate the many different radioactive waste sources including high and low level, solids, liquids and gases. Process names used here are in some cases just convenient labels used to categorize and set them apart from each other. Theories on several of these processes are still quite speculative and solid evidence that would pass conventional peer review is still lacking. This is after all a very new field of science. Some of these technologies are already well protected by international or national patents, with additional US and international patents pending, and further patents may be obtained on new developments as they are made. (end New Paradigm Digest)
From Brian Fraser: Adventures in Energy Destruction
The time is long overdue for America to find a new approach for solving the nation’s nuclear waste problem. That is why I was joined by Senator John Ensign in proposing the creation of a Blue Ribbon Commission of experts to make credible, scientifically sound recommendations for a new approach to nuclear waste. I am pleased that President Obama (Good job Sir) and Dr Steven Chu Secretary of Energy agree with this approach, and on March 3, 2010, announced the creation of the Blue Ribbon Commission on America’s Nuclear Future. (end Brian Fraser)
Alrighty then, we have some good news that came out Jan 26th 2012. The Blue Ribbon Commission on America’s Nuclear Future released its final report to the U.S. Energy Secretary, detailing comprehensive recommendations for creating a safe, long-term solution for managing and disposing of the nation’s spent nuclear fuel and high‐level radioactive waste.
Since the inception of the commission we go to February 1, 2013, Chu announced his intent to resign. Dr Ernest Moniz has replaced Chu and we'll see what unfolds, the public is involved and monitoring this on many levels very closely with their own money and Crowdfunding. Hats off to the new public economy, "you alone with good cause."
In addition to his work at MIT, the White House and the Department of Energy, Dr. Moniz has served on a number of boards of directors and commissions involving science, energy and security. These include President Obama’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology, the Department of Defense Threat Reduction Advisory Committee, and the Blue Ribbon Commission on America’s Nuclear Future.

On The Dangers of Nuclear Power
Holger Strohm, author of the critically acclaimed 1973 bestseller "quietly into disaster" (original: "Friedlich in die Katastrophe") talks with Werner Altnickel about the dangers of nuclear power as well as the mostly ignored technical aspects that make this form of energy so dangerous to humanity and planet Earth. Holger Strohm is the foremost expert in Germany when it comes to nuclear power and the dangers of fission. He has been studying this field for more than 50 years and has written several bestsellers on the subject. This conversation was recorded in April 2011 by the team of http://www.bewusst.tv

|Martin Heck Timelapse Showreel 2013|
Understanding the balance of all things will lead humanity to the Holy Grail and that's understanding all matter. This in itself would be the greatest Christmas present to all humanity, with such science the need to hoard any item will not be necessary, kinda like a printing money machine but in the realm of balance all would share. Not just for some, where the scrooge of Holiday fracture tears at beliefs and religion ideology, this is human conceit which keeps dividing us ever deeper from an elementary level that has been here since the beginning of time, a science yet to be revealed, "the balance".
The balance is one element supporting another, without that support the chain is broken and collapses, just like a DNA strain move an element here take one from there and we have a person that's physically impaired or NFL quarterback. We can't ignore the building blocks of all life around us, nature does not even consider ideology, this is a human thing that sometimes ends with a Fukushima; idiot thinking.
So the Universe and Earth are our greatest teacher, that's Christmas to me, all things, we're in this together and good explores of our home. Kinda like Christoper Columbus stepping on to the shores of America but the balance would have it as, the shore line had been there for some time and you almost crushed that snail coming off your boat where within the tree line was looking out on to you! (all things) Time will come for all things to move forward or perish but it seems we have a head start on the latter. My favorite human conceit is our ideology of the food chain, if we were above any food chain you could bust through the Thermosphere and never look back. But we need aid as in lift to get there, heat to keep us warm, oxygen to breath, artificial gravity in Zero G or the body starts shutting down, shielding from radiation hey wait a minute, radiation lives in an environment of 2.7 Kelvin, just above absolute zero! Seems to me this energy force is above the food chain, nature herself, "you couldn't be me even if you wanted to".
Old Indian saying, "be still and listen to what in life is calling" and I would like to add that not so much you will hear it, but feel it. It being all things.
"Merry Christmas to all things Earth"
Example of all things "the balance", we have here Martin Heck Film Producer his site, Musical artist James Yuill goes out to his site and Heck's Tube channel. See mate the idea was always to share, makes for a broader balance on any subject and how you going to get there "On Your Own."

|America almost dead, pic fr Rex Ivy song Wake Up|
This really hurts man, I have to say once again kindly separate America from the United States. America is it's people and the United States is the government. This country has hardly no support of our government for all the wrong doings going on in the world in which the officials have tainted. Just look at comments from other countries around the world today in the news and we find an ideology that the U.S. should be wiped off the face of the Earth. Ah, you might get your wish for Fukushima is lapping up on the shores of California and will extend from there but unfortunately, radiation cares not of any border.
Seems to be that many in power could give a rat ass for respect and in turn we arrive at today, a world with such greed for control and stuff. Humans are a complicated species, we don't live long and with that we're really into ourselves from the fortunes to be acquired and status in society as one walks out on stage with the crowd applause, lights flashing and Oh boy can I have your autograph. This don't mean jack to the person who is hungry and/or homeless, doesn't know of fame, riches, stuff or ownership of any status that brings them into the light. This separation has divided us deeply of many scenarios not only as a nation but the world as a whole. The manipulation of the financial markets keep sinking to a new level of the worst criminal activity in business today and the governments are hand in hand with it, from the Justice Department, Supreme Court right down to the little court house where the law of the land is burnt and twisted where We The People doesn't matter. But in life you do matter, you care for your family and friends and this is earned not just given.
I myself have jumped off this train some time ago by maintaining less (close to nothing) and helping others when I can without an out stretched hand. Bartering has become a main frame, for when the crash comes my losses will be next to none, a good position to be in, I'm already over it. Kind of hard to get hurt when you have nothing to lose and the gain is great to start over. This type of life is not easy but great seasoning for hard times which is coming like a locomotive from around the world, not just from what the U.S. caused. So many are leaving the country along with business, hate to see ya go but I understand and wish you well. Many here in America will tough it out, I'm still proud of my home ground, I don't see it as the leaders here who have screwed it up so bad where my patience have ran thin. Been fighting corruption for 15 years but you don't know that, will continue to do so until I die and you buggers are welcome to kill me as I've been threatened from time to time along with everything you have stolen. Corrupted power believes that if you kill what a man loves you have beaten him, this is partially true but the spirit of pride, respect and honor lives through out my day and as long as I have a pulse I will always love home, home is the good Earth, I will die this way.
Many have left already, many hate the U.S. (if not the whole world) but I don't blame you for turning your back or that you want the U.S. gone, "I'm truly sorry if no one has said so." I have your 6, I care and will die trying for you and what matters to bring us on a true north course.
This is a song about abandon love, when I heard this today I could only think of America.

Ya know, that's a good question but even more so who it works for. We don't need some thesis from an Ivory tower to explain economics, this is not a science. Science is a systematic enterprise that builds and organizes knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions about the universe, not about a man made board of Monopoly. Developed by the flowing robs of Britain some 300 years ago and erected here in the States, the dawn of Central Banking. Our experience with Central Banking has led to war and depression bubble after bubble. Some times a self destruct button is pushed to halt a run on the banks where accounts are closed like in Cyprus and find days later your money is missing. The reason for this is to steal money from society when the banks are carrying to much debt, create a catastrophe and blame it on that, now the books look better and you don't even get a thank you, while in a soup line, it's happen before. Today's ideology (idiot thinking) is walking away from the Imperialism, the combined interest of the BRICS Nations formed through Russia and China have had enough of this dynasties reign. The BRICS Nations are creating their own Central Bank along with China's own World Bank breaking away from the World Bank (present) and the IMF. Because of this your seeing war, as usual.
So in this system humanity is not of the best interest, the super zort lords (central banks) are not converging on Fukushima and Ebola to even help home or neighbors, unless there was a profit involved. The UN is passing the hat as a trust fund seeking $1 Billion to fight Ebola and after a month, so far $100,000 has been thrown into the hat, that came from Colombia by the way. Oh wait, the World Bank issued dire warning about Ebola's economic impact and just three days ago The World Bank will inject new pandemic emergency facility that would rapidly respond to future Ebola outbreaks by delivering money to countries in crisis. Well there my be hope yet, now get your feet wet with Fukushima. With the damn printing presses around the world you would think an influx of cash for an all life disaster on a global scale would already be in place instead of passing the hat around. I mean the financial institutions we're bailed out pronto (save that dollar) while societies ass hangs on a string, something doesn't add up there.
There is no question that Africa and Japan are in dire straits where the world needs to have combined effort on both Fuku and Ebola. Here's a clip of how we're handling Ebola, let it flow in. The Bio Tech suits are becoming popular and how about that black containment bag, priceless.

Control the money and care not of laws, really?
|Our Solar Systems Sun, "Pumpkinhead" Happy Halloween|
How about the laws of nature, from your back door and pours around the planet with a force so strong that many species have come and gone. No masters of the universe dwell here with us, that's why we praise God as a higher power over government, we don't pray to human beings, only for them. On that note the government has been removing the word God, like one nation under God. U.S. Air Force Academy removes 'God' from its honor oath. Government's proper role with respect to religion is silence! The God theory is this, "Mole he is borrowing, his way to the sunlight, he knows that someone there, is so strong."
To usefully interpret the realm of common, shared experience and history, we must each make certain "over-beliefs" in things which, while they cannot be proven on the basis of experience but helps us to live fuller and better lives.
Popularity for Banks and many governments are at a all time low, the law of averages have been falling to the waste side.
In order for humanity to lead a better tomorrow a certain balance has always been here and that was to share the planet's resources, not to hoard it! This needs a new approach, kinda like an individual who only cares for his or her space and would just assume to use society and or the planet as it's bitch, how about back in your face!

|Beautiful Girl by Dana|
From the Team: "Come back often Mate, this just started"
THE NUCLEAR PROCTOLOGIST: My name is Dana Durnford you can find my info phone number etc at the top under contact , I will be leading a 4 man expedition to document in pictures and samples and using 4 Geiger counters and dosimeters through 9000 km of Canadian coast lines starting September 2nd 2014 for 30 days. Then its off to the North West Territories for 6 days to check their ocean coast line and see if the devastation is there. Then its off to the Yukon for 6 days of cost line and back down the inside passage to BC Canada for a 30 day trip through 26,000 islands.
|Strait of Georgia- Salt Spring Island and Vancouver, first part of Expedition|
This expedition was prompted by the discovery that out of 5500 species only of what the Team chose, (let's look at that species list) along a 200 km coast line of Canada we only discovered 12 species left. We seen only 4 species of algae out of 600 we never found any of the 70 species of sea anemones we seen only one species of sea star out of 64 known local species. We never seen a single bull kelp forest but did see one thin strand of bull kelp. We never got a single insect attack or bite on 16 beaches at low tides nor did we see any insects on our windows or grill after 160 km of highways full of trees.

"God's speed to all that walks, crawls, slithers, swims and flies!"
An important word to know today Mate:
Homeostasis, also spelled homoeostasis is the property of a system in which variables are regulated so that internal conditions remain stable and relatively constant. Examples of homeostasis include the regulation of temperature and the balance between acidity and alkalinity (pH). It is a process that maintains the stability of the human body's internal environment in response to changes in external conditions.
All living organisms depend on maintaining a complex set of interacting metabolic chemical reactions. From the simplest unicellular organisms to the most complex plants and animals, internal processes operate to keep the conditions within tight limits to allow these reactions to proceed. Homeostatic processes act at the level of the cell, the tissue, and the organ, as well as for the organism as a whole. (In a nut shell, that's everything, that's everybody)

Radiation from the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan has reached parts of the north and west coasts of Alaska. (Nov 02, 2013) Nuclear radiation found in B.C. may pose health concerns. (March 12, 2014)
Since we're in the realm of biological life and science it's important to mention, Uranyl peroxide enhanced nuclear fuel corrosion in seawater. Now what we have here is when the think tanks of humankind combined the balance of nature together, where the uranium is transported like grease on wheels, you're going to go farther. Now remember some of these models are simulating a one time release from 1 core, reports of three complete core meltdowns and how's building 4? (one year ago) Reactor unit 4 was shut down after the disaster that crippled the entire facility on March 11, 2011 and all fuel rods had been transferred to the spent fuel pool on an upper floor of the reactor building. (Oh that's a good place!)

HORROR " Pacific Ocean Dying"
The date here is Aug 10 2014 of examining the area (first time out before The Fukushima Expedition started, getting your feet wet 9 days out during low tide) of roughly 200km, the Strait of Georgia between Vancouver Island and the mainland coast of British Columbia, Canada. (this was a live stream)
The entire 200 kilometers we checked of Canadian Pacific Coast Line was devoid of all life except 4 main species and they are very patchy and we a found several other species like limpets and snails etc in tiny insignificant spots never in groups. When a rational person considers the reality of the 5500 species that are missing from the tidal area that is also the nursery of the pacific ocean itself ,recovery seems highly unlikely because Fukushima can not be stopped. The bigger marine animals like salmon fish crabs etc will not last much longer and because people are ignoring 5500 missing species it seems almost impossible to have a debate with that closed compartmentalized irrational mind set.

Looking through the photos posted @ thenuclearproctologist many parts of the pine tree line is not in good shape. We have learned that the near-shore zone of the ocean—defined by the Census as the coastal areas to a depth of around 65 feet (20 meters) is the most-studied region of the ocean because it's so easy to access from land. But surprisingly, we still don’t know how many species live by the shore: estimates vary widely, from 178,000 species to more than 10 million. OK so lets roll the film and how many species can you name and\or see?

2012 Alaska, Canada and Russia from the Bering Strait region: Polar bears, Ring seals, Pacific walruses and Ice seals have fur lose and similar skin lesions.
2013 Sockeye Salmon Run: "Most of the Skeena fish come from the Babine system. And when they went out to sea they seemed to be very strong and healthy and in good numbers, so we think something happened in the ocean."
Oct. 21, 2013: Canadian Pacific Fishermen Catch No Sardines “They've given up looking, pulled the plug,” confirmed Lorne Clayton, executive director of the Canadian Pacific Sardine Association. “It certainly was disappointing. It’s cost them time, fuel, and crew to go out and look, with no compensation.”
2014 Sockeye Salmon Run: AN INTERNATIONAL conservation group has placed three Skeena river sockeye population groups on its’red list’ of threatened species.
Sept. 2014: The situation does not match recognized patterns in ocean conditions such as El Niño. Southern Oscillation or Pacific Decadal Oscillation, which are known to affect marine food webs. "It's a strange and mixed bag out there," Mantua said.
Sept. 2014 Russian Scientists Travel to Kuril Islands to Study Effects of Fukushima Meltdown: (Hey Dana you've got company) "We have knowledge of the radiation situation near the plant, but not of how the radiation spreads in the sea and in the coastal zone … On this expedition we can get accurate information on the spread of radionuclides," scientist Stanislav Shabelev told state-run RIA Novosti on Wednesday. Initial samples of water, air, soil and maritime life taken from around the Kurils will be analyzed onboard the expedition's vessel, though the final results will be obtained after being sent to St. Petersburg's Radium Institute, Shabelev added.
Oct. 1, 2014 Starfish: More often, however, the sea stars’ extremities become gnarled and deformed as the wasting syndrome takes hold, and the organisms quickly disintegrate into a white mush. “It’s pretty horrible,” said Ferber, who has seen sea stars’ internal organs floating in the tide pools.
Oct. 12, 2014 Tritium up tenfold in Fukushima groundwater after Typhoon Phanfone: Some 150,000 becquerels of tritium per liter were measured in a groundwater sample taken Thursday from a well east of the No. 2 reactor. In addition, materials that emit beta rays, such as strontium-90, which causes bone cancer, also shattered records with a reading of 1.2 million becquerels. The water crisis could get worse as the nation braces for Typhoon Vongfong this week.
Oct. 18, 2014 After Typhoon Vongfong: Radioactive isotope cesium are now at 251,000 becquerels per liter. High levels of tritium another radioactive isotope of hydrogen, samples show 150,000 becquerels of tritium per liter.

And not one politician is talking about it. But fisherman are talking about it. The people in the villages are talking about it.

And what they are talking about is ocean acidification.
