AS I UNDERSTAND IT, ONE OF OUR MORE SECRETIVE DEPARTMENTS IN OUR GOVERNMENT HAS A NIFTY LITTLE DITTY UP IN ALASKA THAT IS KNOWN AS A HAARP WEAPON. IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STICKS, THERE LIES A VERY LARGE COMPLEX, IT IS GATED AND FULL OF HIGH LEVEL TRANSMISSION TOWERS, I MEAN OVER 50 TOWERS CLOSE TO EACH OTHER AND ADDITIONAL FACILITY BUILDINGS POSSIBLY UNDERGROUND AS WELL. THESE ARE WEATHER MANIPULATION WEAPONS AND ARE SUPPOSEDLY "DEADLY" AND OUTRIGHT "DANGEROUS".. AS I UNDERSTAND IT, EACH TOWER TRANSMITS EXCEEDINGLY HIGH LEVELS OF GIGA HERTZ OR Ghz...in the 50,000 RANGE AND UP...WHEN ALL OF THE TOWERS ARE USED TOGETHER AT THE RANGE OF 50,000 Ghz, AN ANOMALY OCCURS THAT TEARS AT THE FABRIC OF OUR ATMOSPHERE, THEY CAN AIM THIS EVIL ENERGY ANYWHERE ON THE PLANET BY BOUNCING IT OFF OF THE OZONE LAYER, AND WITH SLIGHT Ghz ADJUSTMENTS CAN CREATE, DOWNPOURS, TORNADOES, HURRICANES, EARTHQUAKES, TSUNAMI'S, AND FLOOD LEVEL RAINS..WHAT GIVES IT AWAY IS THE "AURORA BOREALIS" TYPE COLORFUL SKY EFFECT THAT IS SEEN PRIOR TO AND DURING THE EXTREME WEATHER...SUPPOSEDLY THE WEAPON WAS USED ON HAITI, HURRICANE KATRINA, THE INDONESIAN TSUNAMI, AND SEVERAL IF NOT MOST OF THE EARTHQUAKES THAT HAVE OCCURRED. SOMETHING TELLS ME THAT THE JAPANESE EARTHQUAKE AND TSUNAMI MIGHT HAVE BEEN CAUSED BY THIS WEAPON,,,THE ATMOSPHERE WOULD HAVE HAD TO BE MEASURED AT THE TIME OF THE EARTHQUAKE, BY NOAA OR SOMETHING RELATIVE.......THE FACT THAT THIS WEAPON EXISTS, THAT AURORA BOREALIS LIKE COLORS WERE OBSERVED IN HAAIT, AND THAT RUMOR HAS IT THAT HAATI HAS A "WELL FASHIONED" DEEP BAY ON THE SOUTH WESTERN SIDE OF THE ISLAND. THAT IT SUITED THE NAVAL SUBMARINE BASE REQUIREMENTS JUST PERFECTLY...SEE WHAT I AM GETTING AT HERE.....AS I UNDERSTAND IT, ONE OF OUR MORE SECRETIVE DEPARTMENTS IN OUR GOVERNMENT HAS A... more
A strong 6.5-magnitude earthquake has struck beneath the sea off Papua New Guinea, US seismologists say, prompting a local tsunami alert.
According to the United States Geological Survey, there were no immediate reports of casualties or damage from the quake, which hit at 4:37am (local time) at a depth of 43 kilometres, 120 kilometres west of the island of Bougainville.
"Earthquakes of this size sometimes generate local tsunamis that can be destructive along coasts located within 100km of the earthquake epicentre," the Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre, based in Hawaii, said in a statement.
But the centre says there is no risk of a destructive widespread tsunami from the quake.
It says Papua New Guinea sits on the so-called Pacific ring of fire, a hotspot for seismic activity due to friction between tectonic plates.
A giant tsunami in 1997, caused by an undersea earthquake or a landslide, killed more than 3,500 people near Aitapi on the north-west coast of mainland Papua New Guinea.
In 2007, a tsunami following an 8.1-magnitude earthquake killed at least 52 people in the Solomon Islands and left thousands homeless.

Concerns over how relatively minor tremors caused serious damage to buildings in Lorca, where nine people have diedThe death toll in Spain's worst earthquake for 50 years has risen to nine after another victim died of injuries sustained when twin shocks hit the town of Lorca.
Dozens more are still being treated in hospital in the aftermath of the two quakes, which happened on Wednesday evening.
Residents of the town, which has a population of 92,000, began clearing rubble, with the regional government of Murcia estimating that 80% of buildings had been damaged.

Two earthquakes struck southeast Spain in quick succession on Wednesday, killing at least 10 people, injuring dozens and causing major damage to buildings.
The epicentre of the quakes - with magnitudes of 4.4 and 5.2 - was close to the town of Lorca in the Murcia region of south eastern Spain.
Large chunks of stone and brick fell from the facade of a church in Lorca as a reporter for Spanish state TV was broadcasting live from the scene. A large church bell was also among the rubble, which missed striking the reporter, who appeared to be about 30 feet (9 meters) away when it fell. The broadcaster reported that schoolchildren usually gather at that spot around that time, and if it had happened 10 minutes later, a "tragedy" could have occurred.Two earthquakes struck southeast Spain in quick succession on Wednesday, killing at... more

5.3-magnitude quake hits Spain
Thousands of people are sleeping outside in southeastern city of Lorca
The earthquake measured 5.1 magnitude, the USGS says
It was centered near the Mediterranean coast
Madrid (CNN) -- Thousands of residents of the southeastern Spanish city of Lorca slept outside Wednesday night, hours after the city of about 80,000 was struck by an earthquake that killed eight people, state radio reported, citing authorities.
"It was a strange sensation," said a press office worker who was in his office in the regional capital of Murcia, about 60 kilometers (37 miles) from Lorca. He estimated the duration of the quake from five to eight seconds.
The 5.1-magnitude quake occurred at 6:47 p.m. (12:47 p.m. ET) and was centered about 50 kilometers (31 miles) southwest of Murcia, near the Mediterranean coast, the U.S. Geological Survey said. That is about 350 kilometers (218 miles) south-southeast of Madrid.
It was preceded at 5:05 p.m. (11:05 a.m. ET) by a 4.5-magnitude temblor centered in the same area, the survey said.
At least one of the deaths occurred in a building collapse in Lorca, state-run EFE said.
Television pictures showed the belfry of an old church collapsing soon after the earthquake, as well as fallen bricks on top of damaged cars there. Buildings with broken windows and piles of rubble in the streets of Lorca could also be seen.
The press office said a hospital in Lorca had been evacuated as a precaution.
Many of those who were spending the night outside said they were afraid to return to their houses or had been advised not to do so, state radio said.
The quake occurred during an election campaign for Spain's 8,000 town mayors and most of its regional governments, with voting scheduled for May 22. The two major parties called for a suspension of campaigning on Thursday out of respect for the victims.

In a symbol of compassion and solidarity toward the earthquake and tsunami victims in Japan, Tokyo gallery, Taka Ishii, held an exhibition titled, "NOART," where no work was displayed in the entire gallery, expect for one donation box surrounded by empty white walls.
The Gallery had a previous exhibition planned for the month of April, but decided to postpone the show until a later date.
Taka Ishii Gallery stated, "Within this instance, we painfully realized the powerlessness of art to deal with such extreme conditions. In contemplating the least of what we can do under such circumstances, we decided to hold the exhibition,'NOART'. Without exhibiting anything within the gallery space, we will present a single donation box in the space surrounded by its plain white walls. The donations gathered will be remitted from the gallery to the National Red Cross Society. We hope you will join us in presenting your donations.

The Japanese government has announced a 4 trillion yen ($48.9bn; £29.6bn) emergency budget for disaster relief, after March's earthquake and tsunami.
The budget is expected to be submitted to parliament later this month, and could be implemented in May.
Authorities say no new bonds were issued to fund the spending, to prevent adding to Japan's huge public debt.
The government estimates it will cost as much as 25tn yen to rebuild the country.
The emergency budget is aimed at disaster relief, including providing temporary housing, restoration of infrastructure and disaster-related loans.
The 11 March earthquake left more than 27,000 people dead or missing.
It also destroyed infrastructure in the north-eastern part of Japan and triggered a nuclear disaster.
Prime Minister Naoto Kan has said this could be the first of several extra budgets needed to fund reconstruction.
The budget will be financed by taking 2.5tn yen from pension funds, as well as money set aside to increase payments to families with children.
Money from emergency reserves is also being used.
The Ministry of Finance said on Friday that it would issue an extra 2tn yen in government bonds to increase loans to businesses affected by the disaster.The Japanese government has announced a 4 trillion yen ($48.9bn; £29.6bn)... more

For tsunami survivors, devastation is emotional, psychological
From Brian Walker, CNN
April 17, 2011 11:35 a.m. EDT
A family prays in Rikuzentakata, Japan, on Sunday for victims of last month's tsunami.
A psychiatrist says survivors have gone from acute stress to post-traumatic stress
The mayor of one town tells of his wrenching choice
When the tsunami hit, he decided to stay on duty rather than rush home to his family
His sons were in school and survived; his wife was at home and was lost
Rikuzentakata, Japan (CNN) -- Since disaster struck the Japanese town of Rikuzentakata a month ago, Mayor Futoshi Toba has made hundreds of decisions.
But it's the one he made just before the tsunami that bothers him most.
When the wall of water was bearing down on his town, Toba faced an agonizing choice: Leave his post at City Hall and race home to save his wife and children, or stay to do what he could for the city.
Luckily, his two boys were in school and were able to get away to safety. But Toba's wife disappeared in the waves of water that devastated the town.
"She was missing and I wanted to go to find her," he says, staring out over his town. "Maybe I should have gone to find her. I think about that but still think I would do my duty again."
Her body wasn't discovered until recently, and the 46-year-old mayor was only able to hold a ceremony and have her remains cremated a week ago.
In the meantime, he has been working 16- to 18-hour days, scrambling to help survivors packed into temporary shelters and cope with the cleanup.
Japan's evacuation zone deserted
The tsunami roared ashore, and one in 10 people in this town of 23,000 disappeared or died -- including his wife.
"I've told myself that this is the way it is meant to be," he says. "Now I've stopped struggling."
But amid the devastation around them, many tsunami survivors are increasingly struggling with the emotional and psychological devastation within themselves.
The numbers are still being compiled, but health officials report suicides in Iwate prefecture, where Rikuzentakata lies, are on the rise.
Japan already has one of the highest rates of suicide in the world, and psychiatrists such as Dr. Fuminori Chida are worried that the kind of stoicism and sense of duty the mayor showed may be making things worse.
"In the four weeks since the quake, the initial acute stress has converted gradually to post-traumatic stress disorder," says Chida, who runs a private clinic trying to help survivors and first responders. "That's where the need for the psychiatrist comes in."
But psychiatrists are in short supply here.
Chida has been focusing on police officers and government workers, many of whom have worked nonstop doing the grim job of recovering the dead.
He says as many as half of those he's met with show symptoms of PTSD.
This is Japan, however, a culture known for its stoicism. Psychiatric medicine is not widely accepted outside of major cities.
The idea of confessing your feelings to a stranger is almost unthinkable.
Instead, there is a message being sent to the people over airwaves, on signs in shelters, even lit up on the quake-damaged Tokyo Tower: Ganbatte.
It's a very Japanese term that roughly translates to "keep it up," or persevere through the worst with a stiff upper lip.
That talk may sound good, but experts like Chida say it really doesn't help. Instead of holding feelings in, they say it would be better for survivors to let them out.
"This is the kind of thing we should publicize more," Chida says. "You are not alone. You're not the only person suffering so much fear and agony, and you can recover."
Damaged reactors could take 9 months to shut down
The doctor has led teams of his colleagues to the coastal towns over the past few weekends, hoping to bring some comfort and help to the survivors who feel they're too busy to see psychiatrists, or trying to work through the emotional agonies.
It's a challenge though. Chida told CNN that one police officer who was tumbled through the tsunami in his car with a colleague who died was berated by a superior when the officer began to cry one day.
Meanwhile, back in Rikuzentakata, the stress continues to grow on Mayor Futoshi Toba.
He wants to help more people find their lost loved ones.
"Losing someone with tsunami is different from losing someone from sickness," he says, reflecting on finding his wife. "The way she (looked) is not what she was."
And he tells of facing one last difficult decision.
"I haven't told my kids that their mother is dead or the fact that her body was found," he says solemnly.
"So it is true that I do not need to cope with my feelings while I am at work, but when I am with kids I often think about when to tell them the harsh fact."For tsunami survivors, devastation is emotional, psychological From Brian Walker, CNN... more

Columbia University says the risk of an earthquake as large as 7.0 on the Richter scale is possible at Indian Point. Entergy admits it can’t handle an earthquake of this magnitude and that at best the plant could withstand a magnitude 6.1 earthquake. This is highly significant because the energy released in a 7.0 level earthquake is roughly 30 times more powerful than a 6.1. Please join us in our effort to shut down Indian Point!
