Tepco has injected cement into the joints that connect the tunnels, which are used to run cables, and the building to halt the flow of contaminated water and remove accumulations from the tunnels.
But water levels suggest the effort has remained unsuccessful so far, the officials said. The company began the cement injections after failing to create an “ice wall” over the summer by freezing water inside the joints that would have blocked the flows.
After the cement injections, Tepco pumped 200 tons of tainted water out of the tunnels Monday, causing levels inside to fall around 20 cm, the officials said.
However, if the joints were completely sealed, water levels would have fallen roughly 80 cm, the officials said, indicating the possibility that contaminated water is still flowing into the tunnels.
The officials also noted the possibility that groundwater may be flowing into the tunnels. However, recent data has shown that the amount of radioactive materials in the tunnel water was very high, an official in the Nuclear Regulation Authority said.
“Concentrations should have been lower if large amounts of groundwater are really flowing in,” the official noted.
If the cement injections end in failure, too, Tepco plans to remove radioactive water while injecting cement into the tunnel — an operation that could put plant workers at greater risk of radiation exposure.
The tunnels are believed to contain some 5,000 tons of tainted water. Some observers believe the water may be leaking into the ground and reaching the Pacific.

Unprecedented amounts of rainfall battered parts of France, Switzerland and northern Italy in the last two weeks causing severe flooding and landslides throughout the region. The second round of powerful storms and widespread flooding hit the region over the weekend with the third round forecasted for Monday and Tuesday, November 17 and 18, 2014. Both Switzerland and Italy have issued major flood alerts.
In just a few days, border region of Switzerland and Italy has seen more rain than it would normally expect in a year.
In a 24 hour period (November 15 to 16, 2014) a 159 mm (6.25 inches) of rain was recorded in Italian port city of Genova. Milano received 102 mm (4 inches) during the same period. While annual rainfall plus snowfall average for Genova is 1 079 mm (42.6 inches), Milano's receives an average of 920 mm (36.2 inches) per year.

looks like its going to a fairly nice winter up here for a change , already this month we would have been -25 to -40 like last year , we haven't even seen -15 yet with most days around -8 or warmer
Writes the Seattle Times:
“The North Pacific hasn’t been this warm ever, as far as anyone knows. It’s really strange,” said Bill Peterson, oceanographer with NOAA’s Northwest Fisheries Science Center in Newport, Ore. “It looks like an El Niño, but it really isn’t. We don’t really know what it is.”
Adds the Alaska Dispatch News:
“This is the warmest we’ve seen in 17 years. We believe that to be significant,” said Russell Hopcroft, a professor at the University of Alaska Fairbanks School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences and chief scientist for the long-term monitoring program.
And the San Jose Mercury News says the water in parts of Central and Southern California is warm enough for a swim:
Temperatures off the California coast are currently 5 to 6 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than historic averages for this time of year — among the warmest autumn conditions of any time in the past 30 years.
“It’s not bathtub temperature,” said Nate Mantua, a research scientist with the National Marine Fisheries Service in Santa Cruz, “but it is swimmable on a sunny day.”

The Reproduction Rate of Ebola Defies Logic
Many Americans are stumped by the fact that the Ebola virus is not progressing at the expected rate according to the very conservative Reproduction Rate (R0) projections made by the CDC. The reason for this is simple, we obviously are not dealing with Ebola Restin or Ebola Zaire as we have been told. Further, the majority of Americans who have been suspected of having contracted Ebola are overwhelmingly medical personnel. This makes no sense. Once the virus is inside of the United States, it would spread far more quickly among general population than it would among the far less numerous medical personnel. Our country is doing NOTHING to present the spread of the virus, yet it is not spreading. Statistically, speaking we should have to go no further than this to realize that something is terribly wrong and the public is being lied to.
Based upon the actuaries that can be run in any SPSS statistical data base will tell you that the number of Ebola cases in the United States should approaching a thousand cases in advance of the exponential explosion which should be coming in about a month to six weeks. Yet, the infamous Dr. Spencer is the only known active case in America. This defies logic until one considers the fact that what is loose inside of the United States is not the much feared Ebola. Isn’t it interesting that we never hear or read about lab reports of the make up of the virus in the aftermath of the death of Thomas Duncan? This is more proof that MSM investigative journalism is dead and buried.
Despite the Lack of Ebola Cases, the Administration Continues to Prepare
In the past six weeks, I have reported on the following:
1. The State Department ordered 165,000 Hazmat suits.
2. A total of 250,000 Hazmat suits are headed to Dallas.
3. The administration has ordered over a million Hazmat suits.
4. Bio-warfare labs are being relocated to African countries which do not have a treaty with the United Nations which would prevent such a move.
5. The development of Ebola vaccines continues at a dangerous and hasty speed and will be ready in January of 2015.
6. FEMA is conducting multiple “pandemic” drills this month.
7. Transport services designed to transport and then confine “Ebola” exposed individuals and patients have been set up by Human Health Services. Yet, these quarantine camps do not contain provisions for medical personnel.
8. Obama has expanded Executive Order 13295 in which a person can be forcibly quarantined for asthma, or a chest cold or anything else. This is a mass detention order.
Does anyone else think that these preparations are bit much for the one case of so-called Ebola that we presently have inside of the United States?

hate to be over there right now ,, gonna be some starving, freezing people
DONETSK, Ukraine (AP) -- Dark tunnels in the basement of a bombed-out hospital in the eastern city of Donetsk lead to a makeshift shelter. Opening the door hardly alleviates the gloom, for the only lighting inside is the flicker of handmade oil lamps.
The inhabitants move around like shadows, eyes dull and faces weary with hardship, dressed in several layers of worn-out sweatshirts, vests and jackets. The tiny rooms are lit with sunflower oil poured into saucers and set aflame.
These people took refuge in the abandoned hospital's basement after their own homes were destroyed. They are either too poor or old to flee the brutal separatist war that has ravaged Ukraine's east. Their dire situation is about to become much worse as Donetsk, which has lost nearly half of its 1 million-strong population, braces for winter. In eastern Ukraine, where temperatures typically stay below freezing all winter, damage to critical infrastructure and lack of adequate shelter for the newly homeless could mean death from cold for many.

might be in a for a real bitch of a winter if this keeps up
Just over two weeks ago I posted an article "The Day AfterTomorrow" Is the "Gulf Stream" stalling? a huge area of the Gulf Stream was showing a colder than normal sea surface anomaly while most of the rest of the Northern Hemisphere oceans were warmer than normal, I am not an expert by any means so I am quoting NOAA here: Analysis from NOAA satellites shows that sea surface temperatures in September 2014 were well above normal. In fact, 60% of the Northern Hemisphere ocean surface was 0.5°C or more above the 1981-2010 average. Intrigued I downloaded a screen grab from the Earth Wind Map below, which seemed to agree with the data from NOAA showing the sea surface temperature anomaly, see below, the huge area of blue being the area colder than normal, this was 11-10-14.
I went back to The Earth Wind Map today and to my shock and surprise I noticed the colder than normal area (Temperature Anomaly) had ballooned in size by nearly 300%, stretching from Iceland all the way down to the Canary Isles, (from Alaska to Mexico in comparison) see above! In just over two weeks the colder area has grown by literally thousands of square miles......27-10-14.

I guess those shit bags are here acting on there threats, Sad sad day!
One Soldier dead, many shots fired and one terrorist shot in Parlament hill inside the house!
They suspect 3 culrpits/terrorists.
Sad sad day, poor people! Sad for the soldier!
I wonder if Justin turdo took a bullet in the mouth?? One could hope so that next time he opens his stupid mouth about coddling terrrorists and hugging them he would have learned his lesson, who knows maybe this will have waken that stupid Libtard up - I hope so becuase this kind of shit is new to us in Canada but this shit has been happening for many many years in many countries, we as north americans are naive and think we are untouchable and nothing can happen here...SURPRISE Libtards it can happen here.
Don't kid yourself this kind of crap can happen anywhere in any city at any time for any of these deranged individuals minds reasons.
While I am writting this we just got confirmation that all CF bases are shut down and at 100% stand too!
There are 3 shooting incidents at 3 locations - Parliment hill/ Rideau center and the War memorial.
I think this is only the start adn not the end of this kind of cowardly attacks against civilians and one poor soldier who did nothing.
I hope they catch all of them and shoot them in the head so they can never do this shgit again and never see any trial or any judge, this shit has to stop.

US Holds Patent on Ebola: US Bio-War Researchers in Ebola Zone
What are US bio-war researchers doing in the Ebola zone?
This is a call for an immediate, thorough, and independent investigation of Tulane University researchers (see here and here) and their Fort Detrick associates in the US biowarfare research community, who have been operating in West Africa during the past several years.
What exactly have they been doing?
Exactly what diagnostic tests have they been performing on citizens of Sierra Leone?
Why do we have reports that the government of Sierra Leone has recently told Tulane researchers to stop this testing?
Have Tulane researchers and their associates attempted any experimental treatments (e.g., injecting monoclonal antibodies) using citizens of the region? If so, what adverse events have occurred?
The research program, occurring in Sierra Leone, the Republic of Guinea, and Liberia—said to be the epicenter of the 2014 Ebola outbreak—has the announced purpose, among others, of detecting the future use of fever-viruses as bioweapons.
Is this purely defensive research? Or as we have seen in the past, is this research being covertly used to develop offensive bioweapons?
For the last several years, researchers from Tulane University have been active in the African areas where Ebola is said to have broken out in 2014.

well if this shit goes airborne ya had better kiss yer ass goodbye ..I read just the other day that it could be up to 1.7 billion affected in 12 months
September 2014 – HEALTH – Healthcare workers play a very important role in the successful containment of outbreaks of infectious diseases like Ebola. The correct type and level of personal protective equipment (PPE) ensures that healthcare workers remain healthy throughout an outbreak—and with the current rapidly expanding Ebola outbreak in West Africa, it’s imperative to favor more conservative measures. The precautionary principle—that any action designed to reduce risk should not await scientific certainty—compels the use of respiratory protection for a pathogen like Ebola virus that has: •No proven pre- or post-exposure treatment modalities. •A high case-fatality rate. •Unclear modes of transmission. We believe there is scientific and epidemiologic evidence that Ebola virus has the potential to be transmitted via infectious aerosol particles both near and at a distance from infected patients, which means that healthcare workers should be wearing respirators, not facemasks. The minimum level of protection in high-risk settings should be a respirator with an assigned protection factor greater than 10. A powered air-purifying respirator (PAPR) with a hood or helmet offers many advantages over an N95 filtering face-piece or similar respirator,

well this shit is just about out of hand is it not ??
September 2014 – AFRICA – Officials in Guinea searching for a team of health workers and journalists who went missing while trying to raise awareness of Ebola have found several bodies. A spokesman for Guinea’s government said the bodies included those of three journalists in the team. They went missing after being attacked on Tuesday in a village near the southern city of Nzerekore. More than 2,600 people have now died from the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. It is the world’s worst outbreak of the deadly disease, with officials warning that more than 20,000 people could ultimately be infected. The three doctors and three journalists disappeared after being pelted with stones by residents when they arrived in the village of Wome – near where the Ebola outbreak was first recorded. One of the journalists managed to escape and told reporters that she could hear the villagers looking for them while she was hiding. A government delegation, led by the health minister, had been dispatched to the region but they were unable to reach the village by road because a main bridge had been blocked.
