Much information for this article was found at link below:

There are many people that assume the ocean will dilute fuckyoushima radiation, a secret 1955 U.S. government report concluded that the ocean may not dilute radiation from nuclear accidents as many hoped it would. They have concluded that there could be occurrences of highly-concentrated radiation.

While there will be a measurable increase in radioactive materials, it has been stated that they will be far below the safety levels that have became the standard that the World Heath Organization has set. So there are really no immediate concerns for the populations of the World. So we really have no concern although there is still the problem of Japan dumping huge amounts of radiation into the ocean every single day.

I recently have came across articles that should give us all a hope of combating this problem. Link below:

Finally, now I don’t have to watch so many movies or so much TV programming!

It sounds like something out of a film, but scientists may have discovered a way to make you smarter – by reverting the brain to a “plastic” child-like state.

Researchers at Stanford University experimented by interfering with PirB, a protein expressed in animal brain cells that allows skills to be recalled but which also hampers the ability to learn new skills, and realised they could disrupt the receptor’s regular function, allowing the brain to make faster connections.

By doing so, Professor Carla Shatz and her colleagues, Dr. David Bochner and Richard Sapp, found that their test subjects – animals – were better able to adapt to using only one eye, compared to animals that did not have the PirB molecule supressed.

In repressing the protein to a “plastic” state – which is a technical term that implies the ability to adapt to new conditions – Professor Shatz saw that at least one part of the brain became more malleable and could more easily recover from damage, rewire itself and learn new skills – in effect making a person smarter.

Neuroplasticity, which occurs in the brain under two primary conditions, describes how experiences reorganise neural pathways in the brain – or what happens when we learn something new (like a skill) or memorise information.
