Nuclear crisis in Japan after tsunami caused by earthquake

Platicando con Tarket’s opinion and suggestions:

First, do not panic and do not take the official for granted ‘cause they always hide something. Also track all the info and then reach a conclusion with facts.

Second, if you live or have to visit Japan, in places such as Tokyo and 120 kms. distance from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plants watch out the radiation on green vegetables and water. Avoid drinking milk and water from the faucett, eating green vegetables such as spinach, broccoli, chard, etc. and do not eat sea food.

If you are further from those areas, do not feel relief, keep the alarm.

Thridly, if possible stay indoors when raining or snowing and of course if you have to move out, when going out cover with a plastic and then throw it out.

Finally, for the rest of the world if it is not urgent, do not travel to Japan, help spread useful info to help or comments for cheering up, ask if you have contacts in Japan and  follow the media. Scientists say the slow average of radiation will reach first the northern hemisphere. It depends on the speed of wind and of course the control of leaks in the nuclear radiators.



Apocalypse Island said to be Juan Fernandez shown in History Channel

The History Channel: La Isla Apocalíptica… y es chilena

Google ya entrega 553.000 referencias al término “Apocalypse Island”, habiéndose emitido este programa en la TV norteamericana hace pocas semanas.

Anoche The History Channel presentó el programa “La Isla Apocalíptica”. En este programa, el arqueólogo norteamericano Jim Turner afirma haber descubierto un enorme monumento maya -de 45 metros de altura, acompañado por un enorme jaguar agachado- en la isla Juan Fernandez (Chile).

Según el arqueólogo, este descubrimiento daría algunas luces sobre la “fatídica” fecha del 21 de diciembre de 2012, fecha en la que termina el calendario maya, y que recientemente ha sido interpretada como la fecha del fin del mundo (la exitosa película 2012 se basa en esa hipótesis).

Lo llamativo del descubrimiento de Turner, es que la isla sería el único punto del mundo en que durante 2012 será posible apreciar dos fenómenos astronómicos significativos:

El primero, 40 días antes del 21 de diciembre, cuando se verá el tránsito del planeta Venus (de especial importancia para los mayas) por delante del Sol. Uno de los fenómenos astronómicos menos habituales, y que coincidirá con un día sagrado maya.

Cuarenta días más tarde, el 21 de diciembre de 2012, frente a este supuesto megalito maya y rodeado por un formidable anfiteatro montañoso, se verá un eclipse total de Sol.

Más alla de la natural discusión sobre la veracidad o fantasía del asunto, no cabe duda que la difusión de este programa dará una renovada fama al archipielago chileno (que incluye la isla Robinson Crusoe), creando mayor interés mundial por el grupo de islas y atrayendo una interesante cantidad turistas, que contribuirá a la recuperación del poblado asolado por el tsunami del 27 de febrero pasado. web site of James Turner, explorer who officially launched what would become the Apocalypse Island Project in an effort to document his travels and the discovery of the island monument, along with the insights the monument had provided in his interpretation of the inscriptions at Palenque and the Mayan calendar.  This work continues to the present day.

In the early morning hours of February 27, 2010, a Magnitude-8.8 earthquake struck off the coast of Chile, causing widespread devastation on the continent and sending a tsunami racing toward the sleeping villagers of Robinson Crusoe Island.  The killer waves slammed into the island without warning.  The sea rushed 1000 feet inland through the seaside village of San Juan Bautista, destroying property and claiming the lives of more than a dozen people.  The administrative buildings, school, cemetery, and seaside homes were dragged back into the sea, destroying in a few moments what it took the islanders decades to build.

My most personal connection to the destruction was through my dear friend Pedro Niada, who, with his wife Fabiana, found themselves swimming in the water with their two young children.  They managed to climb into an abandoned drifting boat which was then thrown ashore by the waves, at which time they leapt out and ran for their lives.  It is almost unimaginable the fear and anguish that they have suffered.  Pedro woroe to me: “We have lost everything but not our dreams.”   Pedro and Fabiana had operated an island tour operation, Endemica Expediciones, from a hostel they had built themselves.  The hostel, known as El Pez Volador (The Flying Fish), was a warm respite of hospitality in this rugged environment and was completely obliterated by the tsunami.  The photos below show before-and-after shots, where the tall red pylon can be used to gauge where the hostel once stood. The Apocalypse Island team has begun taking donations to help Pedro and the other islanders rebuild their lives.  Please take a moment to view the “Apocalypse Island Tsunami Relief Fund” page of this website and to consider donating to this worthy cause.


Tsunami:Three basics to happen

A tsunami happens:

1- After an earhtquake plus than 6,5 in Richter Scale.

2- Epicenter inside the sea.

3- Distance between the focus of earthquake towards land is less than 60 kilometers

Anyway if you do not have these three infos:

1- Stay away of the seashore. It is not a common beach day!!!

2- Go up at least 11 metres to a hill or keep away the same amount of metres on the surface in case is flat land.

3- Leave vehicles and walk to avoid traffic jam that will reach you easily than the tsunami
