DHS Prepares For Nuke Attack With Massive Order For Radiation Detectors: ‘To Ensure Nuclear Devices Aren’t Secretly Being Transported In Public Areas’

Earlier this year we reported that Texas game wardens on the southern border have been issued radiation detectors due to concerns that a nuclear or radiological device could be smuggled into the United States through the porous Mexican border.

It appears that the Department of Homeland Security is also taking the potential for a nuclear-based weapon of mass destruction seriously. According to a new report from NextGov the government has ordered some $20 million worth of wearable intelligent nuclear detection (WIND) units in an effort to boost domestic security:

Last year, DHS made a broad agency announcement soliciting proposals for so-called Wearable Intelligent Nuclear Detection, or WIND, technology. Employees would wear the products to ensure nuclear devices weren’t secretly being transported in areas like marine vessels, metro systems, or other public areas, according to DHS.

DHS was specifically searching for “advanced technology demonstrations,” which are for “mature prototype capable of providing reliable performance measurements in a challenging and realistic, albeit simulated, operational environment,” the BAA said.

DHS’ Domestic Nuclear Detection Office, whose mission is to protect the U.S. from nuclear devices, was specifically searching for a modular wearable system that could sense, localize and identify nuclear particles, including gamma rays and neutrons.

The move signals a real and emerging threat and one that the Obama administration highlighted in March in which they warned of the four ways a large-scale nuclear attack on U.S. soil could happen. Whatever the method, the end result would be devastating:

The most devastating but improbable scenario involves a group stealing a fully functional bomb from a nuclear-armed country. Most nuclear experts point to Pakistan as the likeliest source, though that would require cooperation with someone on the inside of Pakistan’s military.

Easier to pull off would be for IS or another group to obtain fissile material like highly enriched uranium, then turn it into a crude nuclear device delivered by truck or ship.

A third possibility is that extremists could bomb an existing nuclear facility, such as the Belgian waste plant, spreading highly radioactive material over a wide area.

The most likely scenario that security experts fear is that a group could get ahold of radioactive material, such as cesium or cobalt, for a dirty bomb that could be carried in a suitcase. Those materials are widely used in industrial, academic and hospital settings, with no consistent security standards across the globe. Last year, an Associated Press investigation revealed multiple attempts by black market smugglers to sell radioactive material to Middle East extremists.

We know for a fact that individuals from the middle east have been using the Southern corridor to enter the United States illegally. We also know that some of those individuals have ties to terrorist organizations. 

With DHS actively looking for ways to detect nuclear radiation it appears that an attack on the United States is now a serious possibility.

Of course, no threat has been announced to the public and chances are that should one exist the American people won’t know until it’s too late. 

Preparing for such an event is critical, because in the fallout (literally) there will be no assistance from emergency responders for days or weeks. That means law and order will break down, medical services will be non-existent and basic necessities will become unavailable.

Having food, water, self defense armaments will be essential to survival. But in a CBRN (Chemical, Biological, Radiologicla, Nuclear) event, an evacuation plan will be just as critical.

And if you are evacuating in a CBRN situation, advanced CBRN-rated breathing equipment will be a life saver.

As Tess Pennington notes in her book The Prepper’s Blueprint, you need to be ready to move the moment a serious threat presents itself or you risk being stuck in the midst of thousands of others who are trying to escape the danger:

If you are told to evacuate keep the following points in mind… If you are driving, keep the car windows and vents closed, and use recirculating air.

Due to the fear of panic and gridlock that will ensure from mass evacuations, most governments will delay mandatory evacuations until the last minute. This will only cause mass confusion and chaos at gas stations, grocery stores and on the streets. The best way to prevent this is to stay ahead of the crowd and prepare ahead of time. 

There is a real possibility that one morning we’ll wake up to a massive terror attack on the United States.

Will you be ready for it?

    The most likely scenario is that a dirty bomb is built outside of the U.S. and the bomber or bombers first sneak into Mexico and then smuggle it in.

    Obama’s open borders policy will lead to the deaths of a lot of people.

    Maybe that is what they want.

    If a nuclear bomb goes off inside of America you can expect martial law to follow within hours on a nationwide scale.

    • It’s easier than that, no need to smuggle across border.

      According to the NRC; “Based on information available to the NRC, an average of approximately 375 sources or devices of all kinds are reported lost or stolen each year in the U.S. — that is, roughly one per day.”

      • BTW, other than the public panic and govt using dirty bomb as excuse for martial law, the radiation threat component of a dirty bomb is largely overrated, other than closing off contaminated area until cleaned up. Most of the casualties will not be from that radiation, but from the explosion itself, which are still the same whether some isotopes were wrapped around it or not.

        • yawnhockel says:

          Pray that it is not a staged event. Staged would be more contained that a real attack planned by real terrorists. Staged would probably be eastern seaboard. Real attack would probably be Seattle, Washington to take advantage of the wind’s affect on the resulting fallout. That would be very bad if the bomb were large enough. Remember how ash from Mt. Saint Helens covered so many states, roughly a 1/3 of the continent. A staged attack on the eastern seaboard would drift into the Atlantic and be largely absorbed. Only another “ground zero” would be talked about on the news.

          Hi Shane,
          I agree. Lots of Alpha particles in the dust but not much more. Alphas can be stopped with clothing or even paper. They do their damage when they are inhaled. The particles will sit in the lungs for a life time and may eventually cause cancer.

        • Equorial says:

          What if the device consisted of an internal warhead that proved too large for a N. Korean rocket, but perfect for a suitcase with an output of 100 kilotonnes? That would make quite the crater in any composition, the blast alone would kill several thousands of folks, and the damage radius is estimated to be 150 miles (circular).

          If that’s what they intend to do, then the device is already here and Obama made sure of it. WHEN will it be used? Perhaps never. They only want whites and Christians killed, and our firearms destroyed so that we can’t kill them in retaliation for killing us!

          Next week they’ll be buying out matchsticks so that we can’t use them for ‘impromptu’ primers (matchheads work in a pinch)!. TPTB are extremely paranoid we are going to start shooting them, and yet they intend nothing less than the very same end.

          Shane,agree a dirty bomb most likely limited impact on area.I believe the causalities would mostly be from panic/martial law ect. and all that involves,not the actual detonation.One right before the elections would lead me to believe purposefully done.

          On a side note,govt. only spending 20 mil on equipment,says to me not taking very seriously,at least publicly.

          • Politicians all have their well stocked bunkers, while 90% of the projected public casualties from for-real nukes are easily avoidable IF people only knew what to do and not do, but they don’t, and I lay that blame on the govt. Google GoodNewsNuke for ‘The Good News About Nuclear Destruction’ detailing what everybody needs to know that the govt isn’t telling them.

        Coincidence??? GW Bush’s younger brother Marvin Bush was on the board of directors for the security firm Securacom who handled the WTC towers security.

        Bush-Linked Company Handled Security for the WTC, Dulles and United – ht tp://www.commondreams.org/views03/0204-06.htm

        Marvin Bush was reelected annually to Securacom’s board of directors from 1993 through 1999. His final reelection was on May 25, 1999, for July 1999 to June 2000. Throughout, he also served on the company’s Audit Committee and Compensation Committee, and his stock holdings grew during the period. Directors had options to purchase 25,000 shares of stock annually. In 1996, Bush acquired 53,000 shares at 52 cents per share. Shares in the 1997 IPO sold at $8.50. Records since 2000 no longer list Bush as a shareholder.

      Over the past couple of years when I have commented upon the deflationary crash ahead, I said that the dollar would get stronger, NOT weaker, as investors look for security.

      I also said that gold would rise along with the dollar, contrary to the normal bias that a weak dollar means a higher gold price, or vice versa.

      Here is Jim Rogers take on it from the recent article at Zero Hedge:

      “On the dollar and gold rising together: There have been times in the past when the dollar and gold have gone up together. So it can happen and it will happen. People looking for a safe haven.”

      Yes, of course, its in the archives. 🙂

      The more likely scenario is that a device is built inside the US and used as a false flag. Then blame the event on a ‘target’ nation like Iran. The degenerates that ‘run’ the US are deviant enough to do something like this as the US population is also expendable.

      • Horse'sass says:

        If the elites were willing to create a 9-11 false flag, then they would certainly have no qualms about setting off a nuclear explosion in the US.

      “MOSSAD“ THE ISRAELI CONNECTION TO 9/11

      By Christopher Bollyn
      Exclusive to American Free Press

      U.S. investigators and the controlled media have ignored a preponderance of evidence pointing to Israel’s intelligence agency, the Mossad, being involved in the terror attacks of 9/11.

      From the very morning aircraft smashed into the World Trade Center (WTC) and the Pentagon, news reports have indicated Israeli intelligence being involved in the events of 9/11 – and the planting of “false flags” to blame Arab terrorists and mold public opinion to support the pre-planned “war on terror.”
      (ALL THE HIJACKERS ON 911 WENT THROGUH US AIRPORTS ON 911 WERE FULLY CONTROLLED BY ISRAELI SECURITY HIRED BY THE TSA) FACT.

      Shortly after the destruction of the twin towers, radio news reports described five “Middle Eastern men” being arrested in New Jersey after having been seen videotaping and celebrating the explosive “collapses” of the WTC.

      These men, from a phony moving company in Weehawken, N.J., turned out to be agents of Israeli military intelligence, Mossad. Furthermore, their “moving van” tested positive for explosives.

      Dominic Suter, the Israeli owner of Urban Moving Systems, the phony “moving company,” fled in haste, or was allowed to escape, to Israel before FBI agents could interrogate him. The Israeli agents were later returned to Israel on minor visa violations.

      The Assistant Attorney General in charge of criminal investigations at the time was Michael Chertoff, the current head of the Dept. of Homeland Security. Chertoff, the son of the first hostess of Israel’s national air carrier, El Al, is thought to be an Israeli national.

      One of the Israeli agents later told Israeli radio that they had been sent to “document the event” – the event which took the lives of some 3,000 Americans.

      Despite the fact that the Israelis arrested in New Jersey evidently had prior knowledge or were involved in the planning of 9/11, the U.S. mainstream media has never even broached the question of Israeli complicity in the attacks.

      ISRAELIS FOREWARNED

      On September 12, 2001, the Internet edition of The Jerusalem Post reported, “The Israeli foreign ministry has collected the names of 4,000 Israelis believed to have been in the areas of the World Trade Center and the Pentagon at the time of the attack.”

      Yet only one Israeli was killed at the WTC and two were reportedly killed on the “hijacked” aircraft.

      Although a total of three Israeli lives were reportedly lost on 9/11, speechwriters for President George W. Bush grossly inflated the number of Israeli dead to 130 in the president’s address to a joint session of Congress on September 20, 2001.

      The fact that only one Israeli died at the WTC, while 4,000 Israelis were thought to have been at the scene of the attacks on 9/11 naturally led to a widespread rumor, blamed on Arabic sources, that Israelis had been forewarned to stay away that day.

      “Whether this story was the origin of the rumor,” Bret Stephens, the Post’s editor-in-chief wrote in 2003, “I cannot say. What I can say is that there was no mistake in our reporting.”

      ~WWTI… Know thy enemy. Again Michael Chertoff Dual Israeli citizen who was the Assistant Atty General later became the Chief of the DHS which OK’d the Israeli security company to be in charge of the Boston Bombing. People we are fucked.

      I started having custom work boots made due to a wide foot. After my
      3rd pair I ended up talking with the boot maker and I stated I like his
      boots and it is worth the extra price as they last longer than any other
      boot I have used in the past.

      I continued to state that when I
      wore Timberlands my feet would STINK>>>>BAD. He proceeded to
      tell me that the corporate manufacturers decided that they would use
      swine skin to cut costs. These pigs are not even fit for eating he
      stated.

      He continued to explain that the pigs hormones mix with
      yours in the boot and produce that “Garbage Smell”. I said “exactly” it
      smells like garbage! My feet don’t smell like that. He stated that pig
      and human hormones don’t mix.

      In his cow leather boots it always smells like leather until they have served their useful life.

      Corporate boot makers have descended into making you pay premium money for pig feet.

      Pay the extra money for well designed stitched soles (not liquid nail glued) and long lasting leather workwear.

      Now the scumbag TRAITORS are going to have a False Flag event before the elections.
      And no one in Military or other branches of government will do a damn thing to stop this insanity. Not to mention the Obama trying to start a Nuclear War with Russia.

      We are so screwed. Titanic comes to mind. Violin music being played by men in formal dress attire as the ship goes down.

      No worries. The government pukes have a life raft. They will not be at ground zero. Same as they all magically were safe during 911 false flag orchestrated event.

      I’m sure your brave leader Barry will be on a golf course in the southern hemisphere as we are all being blown to hell. Our children will die.

          There was an interesting article out today by Frosty Wooldridge. He poised the question, “What if 20 Million Illegal Aliens Vacated America?”

          He gave some interesting statistics:
          In California, if 3.5 million illegal aliens moved back to Mexico, it would leave an extra $10.2 billion to spend on overloaded school systems, bankrupted hospitals and overrun prisons. It would leave highways cleaner, safer and less congested. Everyone could understand one another as English became the dominate language again. (Source: http://www.cis.org)

          In Colorado, 300,000 illegal migrants, plus their 150,000 kids and grand-kids – would move back “home,” mostly to Mexico. That would save Coloradans an estimated $2 billion (some experts say $7 BIL) annually in taxes that pay for schooling, free breakfasts-lunches, medical, social-services and incarceration costs. It means 12,000 gang members would vanish out of Denver alone. (Source: http://www.Cairco.org)

          Colorado would save more than $20 million in prison costs, and the terror that those 7,300 alien criminals set upon local citizens. Denver Officer Don Young and hundreds of Colorado victims would not have suffered death, accidents, rapes and other crimes by illegals. (Source: http://www.Cairco.org)

          Denver Public Schools would not suffer a 67 percent drop out/flunk out rate via thousands of illegal alien students speaking 41 different languages. At least 200,000 vehicles would vanish from our gridlocked cities in Colorado. Denver’s four percent unemployment rate would vanish as our working poor would gain jobs at a living wage. (Source:Rocky Mountain News, May 16, 2004, “What Happened?”)

          In Florida, 1.5 million illegals would return the Sunshine State back to America, the rule of law and English.

          (Source: FAIR “US Population Projections” Fogel/Martin March 2006)

          In Chicago, Illinois, 2.1 million illegals would free up hospitals, schools, prisons and highways for a safer, cleaner and more crime-free experience. (Source: Chicago Tribune)

          ***I have a few of my own thoughts on What if 20 Mil Illegals vanished?
          1. It would be a great start to getting our country back!!!
          2. The Democratic Party would have 20 Mil less voters.
          3. Target employees would be speaking English again.
          4. My Taxes would be reduced by 1/3.
          5. Crime would drop by 25%, because the other 75% are black criminals.
          6. The DMV would have English speaking White employees again.

          How about you? Got any other advantages of no illegals?

    So what the hell does the Zionist DHS know? After all they hired Israeli security companies to run the US Airports, that ALL OF THE 9-11 HIJACKERS CAME THROUGH ON THAT DAY.

    • Equorial says:

      Perhaps they are holding off on the nukes for one reason. First, we need, “as a group” to be all gathered into one area (for our own good and other reasons we would not be able to understand), and we must also not be armed because it pissed off UN Personnel when we are armed, and they can’t kill us safely if we are armed. So, they aren’t willing to even fight for our Country, let a bomb do the initial work, have some Mexicans clean the rest up then knock them off too. Bingo, 95% population decrease, and they never had to lift a finger. Just boom and wait.

      All those who have not prepped are already trying to make good with those who have, and many families are “getting hot” about it (and I’m talking world-wide as The USA ain’t the only place there are preppers).

      For all those prepping, perhaps now is a good moment to stand back to ensure you are able to replace everything you have used thusfar (like seeds for next-years garden), a hog or more on order.

      Those in The Carolinas, especially North …be looking for some serious rain coming at ya….

  7. Most all of the interdiction type devices deployed by DHS are designed to be sensitive to very low levels of radiation for effective detection of hidden and shielded sources and, unfortunately, are of limited utility after any for-real detonations because they often saturate out at those much higher radiation levels that are more life threatening then.

    For instance, most sensitive geiger counters saturate out at around 100mR/hr and while good for detecting a hidden nuke source, and for later decontamination duties after one gets unleashed, they are useless to tell you whether you are walking into a 3R/hr (3,000mR/hr), 30R/hr or 300R/hr field, the last fatal in less than two hours of exposure.

    In fact, some can be worse than useless cause they don’t all indicate saturation, but just zero then, having user think they are out of it all now. For higher R ranges, well above 100 mR, you need a high range instrument, which few, if any, of these DHS interdiction deployed detectors are.

    The old CD yellow units, the CD V-715 and CD V-717 are reliable high range instruments, and if recently calibrated, are a good value. The high range dosimeters, like the CD V-742’s are an excellent value, too, and with timing their exposure they give you the same rate info as those meters, too.

    We calibrate both here at ki4u, google us.

    Bottom Line; The most important tool, though, is between your ears, as 90% of the expected casualties won’t be from not having an instrument but from not knowing what to do and not do from instant of the first flash and through the first couple days of highest fallout intensity. Google GoodNewsNuke and read there ‘The Good News About Nuclear Destruction’ for more details.

    • Plan twice, prep once says:

      Shane,
      Absolutely right about radiation sensors being overloaded and reading little to nothing, while the danger level was through the roof.

      This is exactly what happened when several nuclear reactors at Fukushima melted down. Even sensors in the US were being overloaded, they were reading erratically so the government just shut them down. For months radiation monitors at Fukushima reported much lower radiation levels than were really occurring, because they were overloaded by the unexpectadly high radiation levels.

      This is why, if you can find surplus Geiger counter kits from the Cold War era, they always came with a set of three Geiger counters. One read low level, another read dangerous, and the third read get the hell outta there levels, or you are a dead duck!

      I built my own Geiger counter, but I made it so I could switch between one of three different Geiger counter tubes. From very sensitive to, hey a nuke just went off, to avoid this very problem.

      I want to upgrade it to one that can be connected to a computer, so data can be stored and graphed by time. Background radiation levels are variable with radiation from the sun and stars being quite variable.

      Another trick is to take readings off of dryer lint? It acts as a filter and traps heavy particles from inside yor house. When a weekly load of laundry is done take the lint and get a Geiger counter reading. Take another reading every five minutes and graph it. What you are seeing are the short lived daughter isotopes that are created as radon in your house decays and changes into its various daughter elements.

      I was thinking of making this process near lab quality reliable by making a small aluminum screen tube that would house a rolled Swiffer duster cloth. A small standard laptop muffin fan that delivers a specified cubic feet per minute of air pulled through it. A Geiger counter tube down the center would take readings. Turn it on and watch until it peaks. Then turn it off and watch until it hits its low/ normal background levels. The shape of the up curve will tell you how bad the contamination is, and the downside curve indicates the identity of the daughter isotopes or what the nuclear source is. Something a simple Geiger counter can’t do.

      What is cool about this idea is: I chose a Swiffer duster because they are specifically treated to trap charged particles like dust. They turn out to be good at collecting ionized nuclear particles too. They are mass produced, dimensionally reliable, and as an air filter for charged dust particles, they are very good. If a standard sized collection container lined with a Swiffer Duster sheet is used, and air pumped at a reliable rate through it, anyone in the world could construct one and get very consistent readings. It would make reliable air sampling available to any amateur or professional. Thousands and thousands of people could work together to create maps of contamination. You could trace nuclear polluters or terrorists!

      Did you know that the government has protocols for collecting car air filters at highway stops. Take a Geiger counter reading on them. Hand it back to you. Ask you where you’ve driven for the last few hours, and then feed the data into a computer app to track the source of a dirty bomb or stolen nuclear material. Just like dryer lint, a car air filter can collect nuclear particles.

      Ok, have I totally outed myself as a full blown geek with this post? Where did I leave my slide rule? Oh yeah, I know exactly where it is, under my pillow right next to my .45, and I how to use it. Hah, and HCKS thinks he needs meds.

      Ok just having fun HCKS. Just letting you know we’re thinking of you and enjoying life.

      Great news, I’m a grandpa. Invented a new bed time rhyme. It goes like this: “3.14159 yum yum we like pie” (yeah that’s really pi). Repeat until baby is asleep.

      • Plan twice, prep once, Fascinating post.

        You’d probably find of interest our free air filter (auto or house) analysis with our scintillation Radiation Isotope Identifier (RIID). We started offering it after Fukushima to see and show how much and what flavor of isotopes we were getting over here. This was reassuring to some because while we confirmed elevated levels nationwide (highest on west coast), mostly I-131, Cs-137 and Sr-90, they were all still very far below anything where you’d hesitate drinking the water or milk or breathe the air. Google radtest4u to go see it.

        We’d also gotten sent in some RO water filters from sailboat cruisers out in the Pacific, too. Nothing ‘exotic’ to see or report there.

        We’ve also had some interested in basement radon readings rubber band filter paper or similar over end of vacuum cleaner hose intake and let it run down in their basement awhile, careful that it does not overheat, starting a fire. Then send it in via same free radtest4u program above. Not very accurate with varied times and ‘suck’, but could at least let people know if a more certified test was indicated if/when anything detected.

        You’d probably find this of interest, too, after years of R&D we finally succeeded in producing a single geiger tube detector, via ‘time to first count’ custom in-house software, to accurately detect gamma (and beta above 200KeV) seamlessly from background to over 700R/hr. 1µR/hr through 600R/hr confirmed by Oak Ridge Natl Labs, was required by govt agencies we’re dealing with. One customer even reported back they’d confirmed it was accurate up to 1,300R/hr, too! Additionally, rad detectors are considered industry accurate to be within plus/minus 20%, our units are regularly within 10% or less across the full spectrum. Google NukAlert-ER to see more about it. You’ll also see at the bottom of that NukAlert-ER page a hint of what we are doing with DHS, FEMA and EPA in trying to establish a national network for the higher levels of fallout radiation.

        US currently still does not have any such comprehensive national network in place for higher level rads expected in fallout. Past govt experience tells me, at best, they’ll probably be late fully implementing it, too. Best for all to assume, we’ll each be on our own sorting out what’s blowing in on the wind.

    • Winston Smith says:

      I also wouldn’t overlook the Soviet DP-5A and DP-5B (DP-5V) kits either as they seem to be very nicely made with features the American ones lacked. I actually own both the American ones and the Soviet set, although I bricked my only working CDV-715 by forgetting to take the batteries out (NEVER use Rayovac!). The Soviet set has a fairly strong Strontium 90 source built into the probe for calibration and I found that mine was still calibrated correctly when I did the math on the nuclear decay ( I have all the original calibration paperwork from when it was built in Ukraine just before the breakup).

      How is the Soviet set better? It has a button to zero the meter that the CDV-700 lacks, as well as a better check source, a wand to put the probe close to the ground, a car battery adapter that works with both 12 and 24 volt batteries, a glow in the dark backlight for the dial, a lighted backlight for the dial, one unit does both high and low range detection, they are 10-30 years newer, and it comes with spare parts if you get it in the wooden carrying case (spare GM tubes and bulb, screwdriver, plastic bags to prevent contamination, case seals, etc.). There are only two real negatives to the Soviet set. First is that the casing is a heavy plastic (with rubber environmental seals) instead of the metal used in the US Civil defense meters of the 60’s (Avoid early models from the 50’s as they use obsolete B cell batteries.). Second is that it takes an odd Soviet/European battery size. The easiest way to get them is to break apart a 4.5 volt square battery and remove the three cells to use in the geiger counter. Just be certain to test and mark them for polarity and wrap them in tape lest they short together. (I got mine from a German Ebay seller for $10 and it was made by Duracell.) You could also use AA batteries if you built an adapter. I bought my DP-5V (green case) from a Ukrainian Ebay seller for $150 (shipped).

    • Winston Smith says:

      (I should have done this in my other response but it is a little different subject)

      The instruments being used by DHS I do not believe are geiger counters. They are most likely some sort of scintillation detector or perhaps a hybrid sort of detector with an alpha sensitive GM probe and a scintillation detector to be able to differentiate the isotopes present.

      As far as surviving nuclear war, yes, initial survival is very attainable for those not at ground zero. “Duck and Cover” (the movie) outlines very well how to survive the initial blast, and I have tried to tell as many people as I can just why you should follow the movie’s advice. The problem becomes how to survive after the bombs stop falling. In a city, you may be well and truly screwed as you will need to flee the firestorm just as the radiation is at it’s most deadly. In that case it is about where you are and how the wind is blowing as to if you can shelter for long enough to escape death (rule of sevens and all that). Outside of the cities though, food and fallout will be the big worries. Most people think only in terms of underground bunkers as fallout shelters, but most people have the materials to build an uncomfortable expedient fallout shelter in their homes, if they only know how. Boxes, a sturdy table, storage bins, books and garbage bags can all be used to build an effective indoor shelter outside the blast zone. It’s density that stops the gamma radiation, after all.

      • Couple points on fallout, most people within range that could later see fallout, won’t. Most fallout goes downwind and even those within a few miles of farthest out blast zone, but not immediately downwind, can just stay home without any fallout sheltering.

        Could be well over 90% of the compass rose surrounding ground zero won’t see any fallout outside farthest extent of blast zone. Only those within that downwind fallout plume zone need to get out before it arrives or hunker down for 48 hours of fallout-sheltering-in-place if not enough time to evacuate.

        The expected firestorms are likely over rated, too, they were based on WWII experiences where wood construction was much more common than steel and concrete in big cities.

        You are spot on about “Most people think only in terms of underground bunkers as fallout shelters, but most people have the materials to build an uncomfortable expedient fallout shelter in their homes, if they only know how.”

        It’s stunningly easy to quickly throw together an effective expedient shelter, when you learn how. Cramped and uncomfortable, probably, but 48 hrs later you’ll of survived it.

        Google GoodNewsNuke to read ‘The Good News About Nuclear Destruction’ and the free nuke prep primer it points/links to near end of it detailing the how to’s.

        • Winston Smith says:

          Oh, I have already read all of Ki4U’s articles and learned a lot from them, as well as the Civil Defense Museum. I also own a few FEMA/OCD/OCDM manuals and have downloaded the service manuals for all of my US instruments, as well as English language translations of the schematics for my Soviet one. In addition, I have a copy of Cresson Kearny’s “Nuclear War Survival Skills” ($10 used on Ebay), which is a very good resource to have on hand in case of such an emergency. I also carry both a CDV 742 dosimeter and an old Radalert 50 geiger counter (and a FEMA guide for radiological monitors) in my bugout bag that stays in my car at all times.

          All of my main instruments have been checked against each other to be certain they were in the ballpark and they all read within 5% of each other using samples of Uranium glass, the DU check source on the CDV-700 6A, a Radium 226 clock and the Strontium 90/Yttrium 90 source on the DP-5V. Since the margin of error for calibration is 20%, I consider it good enough since my main focus for these instruments would be finding the safest place to shelter in with the lowest reading. It’s not ideal, but it is better than what 99% of the general population would have in the unlikely event of a nuclear war. As much as I would love to have everything professionally calibrated and serviced, it’s not in my budget to do so. I do, however, perform regular maintenance on them according to the field service procedures.

          • You definitely sound well squared away, so will probably appreciate the following…

            Ideally, meters and dosimeters should be calibrated at mid-scale with a strong enough source to do so, but a short cut for choosing which dosimeters I’d be confident using (and also for later confirming rate meters accuracy with them), if I had no source at all and none of them had been recently calibrated, is the following:

            Zero out a dozen or so CD dosimeters and stick them in a food dehydrator or other heat source at 50C (about 122F) for five days. (This is the Part 1 ‘electrical leakage heat test’ of the FEMA protocol for checking the accuracy of dosimeters.)

            Good sealed ones should not climb or creep up scale more than 5% of the total scale, or not more than 1% scale per day.

            Of those that don’t creep up excessively, then in our experience (17 yrs doing 1,000’s here at ki4u) 93% of those that pass will later also pass the Part 2 radiation exposure accuracy test to mid-scale, too.

            BTW, A lot of the bad dosimeters that won’t pass this five day heat test will noticeably fail early on, often
            within hours on day one and should always be discarded.

            With a half dozen or more that passed the heat test in hand, they can then all be checked against each other later when exposed in a for-real radiation emergency to assure even higher confidence of accuracy. Ignore & discard any wild flyers after exposure and average out the one’s remaining that should all be reading close to each other and you are probably spot on then. Those are your keepers.

            That accurate dose reading can then be used to confirm any other instruments, too, even rate meters if you’d timed your dosimeters exposure duration so you can then convert that into a mR/hr or R/hr number. IOW’s, if in half an hour of exposure the dosimeters had climbed another 20R, then you’d know that that was a 40R/hr field. Your rate meters, if in same location, should have all been reading 40R/hr if they are accurate. And, if any are not too crazy far off, then you can just mark a correction factor on them for even more confident future use of them.

            Make sense?

      • Plan twice, prep once says:

        Yup, scintillation detectors are the way to go.

        For those not familiar, there are certain crystals and polymers that produce a flash of light when a nuclear particle passes through them. The color and intensity of the flash can tell you what the nuclear source was. A Geiger counter simply tells you a nuclear particle struck it, but provides no identifying information. In my post above I described using filters and recoded decay curves to ID collected particles. It’s a cool way to do it, but not as good as a scintillation detector.

        The fly in the ointment, you can get a Geiger counter for one to two hundred dollars.

        A quality scintillation detector costs tens of thousands. A scintillation detector uses a photo multiplayer tube to amplify the signal and then looks at the light though a spectrascope to identify frequencies of the light and intensity.

        Scintillation detector crystals can be bought surplus quite cheaply. I’d love to see someone write an app that uses a cellphone camera to look at the crystal and give a reading. It would be crude, but likely better than a Geiger counter.

        For preppers who want to know if the air or water is contaminated, a Geiger counter would do the trick. Having a standardized method for sampling air and getting accurate repeatable information, golden.

  10. TEST says:

    If you are concerned about this, a couple notes:

    1.) Download for free Cresson Kearney’s classic Nuclear War Survival Skills. Google or get at http://www.oism.org/nwss/ OISM is a good group to know about anyway.

    2.) Get potassium iodide for thyroid protection. I use KI4U.com; they do a lot of radiation protection stuff, such as geiger counters, etc.

    3.) Check out Dr. Jane Orient, MDs website, Doctors for Disaster Preparedness, at http://www.ddponline.org Her newsletter is $20. She has dirt cheap radiation stickers, as well as a Nuke Alert device that will register radiation with chirps – very easy to use, long life battery that can be replaced. DDP has these, as does http://www.nukalert.com of course. I think KI4U does as well

    4.) Remember that if it is a dirty bomb, if the explosives used to create it doesn’t kill you will be fine. The goal is to create terror based on lack off knowledge.

    5.) I always wondered about those so-called “suitcase” nukes, so read up on it more. My conclusion is that they either don’t exist, or if they did, they have long, long since deteriorated and become unusable.

    6.) I don’t know what N. Korea has up its sleeve, but I have been reading its subs *may* be more advanced than we think. My guess is that there is more worry, right now, for S. Korea and Japan.

    7.) In a major conflagration, I would be worried about the nuclear power plants going Chernobyl. Illinois has, if I recall, around 5 – 6 of them. Of course, an EMP or CME would do the same thing.

    8.) There’s always the Islamofascists in Iran. I don’t know if MAD would deter them, or if they think that would trigger the return of their faux 12th imam, so they would do any nutty thing.

    9.) There continues to be talk about a “conventional” nuclear war between Russia/China and the West, which is also a threat. Some think this would be used as a cover by the banksters to co-opt power, or cover their debt mess; or perhaps, like WWI, it might just be a series of miscalculations, starting, perhaps, with that Chinese airbase they are building on that reef in the Pacific.

    I think the rightful place of government, per the Constitution, is national defense, so in this case, I think there is a rightful and Constitutional justification to protect us… though of course this must be balanced with our other Constitutional rights. This, of course, takes the wisdom of Solomon to rightly divide between the two extremes. Hilary – and her Islamofascist Muslim Brotherhood buddies like Huma Abedin, wife of disgraced Anthony Weiner, is so utterly corrupt and bereft of any wisdom at all, she is the LAST person you want running the country if something horrible like this happens. Pray this never happens – the suffering would be unimaginable.

    I don’t know any more than the rest of you, but I believe that while we trust in God, preparedness is also a good idea, just like any other insurance. Besides, it feels good to have a modicum of self reliance, not just being another cog in the socialist nanny state.

      • Equorial says:

        You can make a DIY “nuke patch” using potassium iodide poured (soaked) into about 4 gauze patches, then put them on you underneath waterproofed band-aids (chest pads, anything ya got). You’ll absorb it but you’ll need “numbers” ((like; how much per weight))) that I do not have here, and can’t find a link, yet they are out there).

        Rule of thumb: One cap is equal to one pill, poured onto the gauze then absorbed. Since it loves to evaporate, these will need tending often with no room for error (no forgetting about it). (That’s why you want to use waterproof stuff, to cut down on the ‘evap’…)

        • More details and other options if no KI or KIO3 tablets available if you google…

          When An ill Wind Blows From Afar

          This is an excerpt from it…

          In an emergency, if no more KI tablets available here, you can topically (on the skin) apply an iodine solution, like tincture of iodine or Betadine, for a similar protective effect. (WARNING: Iodine is NEVER to be ingested or swallowed, it is poison to drink.) For adults, paint 8 ml of a 2 percent tincture of Iodine on the abdomen or forearm each day, ideally at least 2 hours prior to initial exposure. For children 3 to 18, but under 150 pounds, only half that amount painted on daily, or 4 ml. For children under 3 but older than a month, half again, or 2 ml. For newborns to 1 month old, half it again, or just 1 ml. (One measuring teaspoon is about 5 ml, if you don’t have a medicine dropper graduated in ml.) If your iodine solution is stronger than 2%, reduce the dosage accordingly.

          Absorption through the skin is not as exact a dosing method as using the tablets, but tests show that it will still be very effective for most. More about the above at Plan B, along with formulas there for mixing up potassium iodide (KI) solutions if you acquire KI powder or crystals.

          Do not use if allergic to iodine. There are also a few other medical conditions and medications, discussed there, that are contraindicated that your physician can best advise you about. Inquire of your doctor NOW if there is any reason why anybody in your household should not use KI, or iodine solutions topically applied on their skin, in a future nuclear emergency, just to be sure.

  11. Where would be a good source to buy a radiation detector for civilian use

    • Warchild Dammit! says:

      Jim,think old guy might have one for sale!

    • What we’ve always told people is if you can only afford one rad meter, or one now at first, make sure it is a high range meter. See my other posts in this thread, but point is, if you don’t have a high range meter to warn you out of the higher dangerous levels of radiation, you may never get to use your low level meter later for checking food, water and decontamination duties.

      You want something that measures gamma up into at least the 50R/hr range, like our NukAlert, or get a Civil Defense CD V-715 or 717 off ebay (it reads up to 500R/hr) and send it in to be calibrated. Either can be done for less than $150. High range dosimeters are even cheaper. And, the cheapest are RADStickers and RADTriage cards. And, also more on the internet, besides what we offer, just make sure it covers well up into the R/hr range and not just lower mR/hr range. Google ki4u for more info.

        MG,reminds me of the story of the A-Bomb Kid,Princeton student who for final paper/thesis ? designed a very workable nuclear weapon,asked for and got a lot of help from govt. employees!With the net,can see the boy scout pulling this off!

    • He compiled legally obtainable sources, like Americium from smoke detectors and thorium from lantern mantles and radium off old watch dials and tritium from gun sights, in his pursuit to make a breeder reactor to produce a tiny little fissionable isotopes.

      He never did and it would have been minuscule if he had, nothing remotely close to ever making a fissionable nuclear bomb, but if his collection of those sources had been wrapped around an explosive it would certainly be classed a dirty bomb, but health risk would be largely limited to the explosive blast itself. Of course, panic among ignorant public would be off the charts.

      Interesting related story…
      Buddy of mine bought a truckload of 18,000 old smoke detectors back in 1995 that had been stuck in a trailer, un-disposable, for 12 years. The factory they were supposed to have gone back to had gone out of business. The Colorado Health Department said disposal would cost $40,000. The DOE and the NRC wanted nothing to do with it.

      So, he got them for $1 and distributed some to science teachers, but mostly we used to put one chip with every KFM kit so people could test them themselves and see their homemade fallout meter work. These smoke detector Am241 chips were made back when they were much hotter than they’re made now. Primarily an alpha emitter, 1,000 of those Am241 chips puts out a fair amount of gamma, too.

      But, still, even that many would not pose much of a radiation risk when exploded in a supposed ‘dirty bomb’, in fact they’d likely be less hazardous to be around than before being dispersed!

      • Braveheart1776 says:

        I’d still like to know what happened to the old Soviet “suitcase nukes” supposedly made during the 80s and kept under KGB control. They supposedly disappeared sometime after the USSR went out of existence. I’m not sure if those nukes would still be useful considering their age.

      • Plan twice, prep once says:

        Old smoke detectors make a great test standard for a Geiger counter. For the low end, a TIG welding rod with thorium works well.

        In the 50’s and early 60’s nuke engineers set out to make the smallest functional nuke that they could. It was a nuclear hand-grenade the size of a large pineapple. Once that design project was done, they looked at military systems that could deliver it based on its killing radius. Obviously no soldier could throw this nuclear hand-grenade far enough! It certainly could be carried in a backpack or suitcase and placed with a timer. As a tactical nuke it could be delivered by artillery, missiles or aircraft with a range that exceeds the bombs killing radius.

        I’ll bet current nuclear weapons technology can make a bomb smaller than even what I’m aware of.

        If a suitcase nuke ever explodes, assume a nation state is behind it, or it is a false flag. This is not technology that is easy, or available to moron terrorists.

    • Plan twice, prep once says:

      HCKS,
      You are absolutely correct.

      I may question timing. There is a spiritual aspect to these attacks, that we are not privy to.

      My point is the timing is under the creators control, and is not subject to the wishes of man.

      Don’t be impatient for God, he has a design, and it is intended to save as many souls as possible.

      The days we are in will make people hate or love the Lord who created us. The line is in the sand.

      I’ll give you a mystery to research. Personally I think the “Millerites” were ever so close, but they missed some details. They didn’t grasp that Daniel was written to Jews that use a lunar calendar, and Revelation to the Gentiles that use a Gregorian calendar. There is a conversion factor to apply to Daniel for modern Christians. It will make the two align. Revelation spoke of events that occur only in Heaven for the Glory of God, Millerites expected those events to happen on Earth too. Many sold their goods and just sat waiting for events that never happened on earth.

      You seem to have fully grasped that time is short! You are right, but Gods timetable is not mans. Never the less be true and be ready. The lord shows us the way.

        The Gregorian Calander was from Pope gregory and it was Not created untill about 550 yrs ago, that is aprox 1,500 Yrs After rev was written. So I do not blieve your therory holds any truth based on what you stated of the two different calanders.

        Botton line is that so far most if not all of the too many prophesy “experts” and especially all of the recent past 40 yrs also known of as TV pastors you All know their many names…Have been totally wrong to date on almost all they ever stated as truth or biblical rev prophesy fact etc.

        Pastor Chuck Baldwin a NON 501C irs tax free Slave, and free to speak out on ALL issues be they issues on israel or zionists or Politics…he speaks/writes of it All.

        His newset article at newswithviews is aimed at this very topic!…he rails on how totally messed up Most christians in usa are now thanks to so many apostate falshood preaching pastors on end times obsession.

        He also in the article includes a few choice paragraphs dealing with the massive wrong headed beliefs the same pastors have caused so many usa christians to have about zionists-israel-jewry in general.

        his last three or so articles all deals with these important topics and are very good info to read if anyone here has fallen prey to them pastor-wolves in sheeps clothes. They all refuse to educate folks on proper issues due to mass fear of loss of that IRS tax free status and rather remain a IRS Slave at Your expence!

      Adar is the sixth month of the civil year and the twelfth month of the ecclesiastical year on the Hebrew calendar. It is a winter month of 29 days.

      Esther 9:1 ¶ Now in the twelfth month, that is, the month Adar, on the thirteenth day of the same, when the king’s commandment and his decree drew near to be put in execution…

      Purim is celebrated on the 14th day of Adar, which is usually in March. The 13th of Adar is the day that Haman chose for the extermination of the J*ws.

        The US Military has been placing a lot of Black Hawk helicopter at US bases near Major cities for a few years now. Its all part of the Master plan during Martial Law. You know those dry run night flyovers through major cities shooting blank .50 cals from their open door cockpits. Scaring the hell out of the populations over the last few years. Its going down folks. Get the hell out of the cities as they will shut down the highways, in and out of the cities, and nobody is leaving. You will be trapped, and those living in cities will become hostages for extermination. You are the 90%-ers on the Population reduction master plan. They will bulldoze down entire single family homes and subdivisions and build stacked shoe box container housing 300 sq ft small to house the remaining survivors. Its all part of their Agenda 21 master plan or population reduction and they do this by pushing all populations into these 11 Master cities. Resistors will be killed or sent to FEMA Camps.

        • Them Guys says:

          WWTI: That part on Bulldoze entire towns etc sounds alot like how in Israel they bulldoze homes and entire villages of Both Muslims And Christian homes/villages. Then after they turn those palestinians into refugees and homeless, nuttyahoo sends in more zios to make more jewish settlement housing divisions and even greater areas gets Occupied by ziojewry in israel.

          So do you think they will build jewish housings once bulldozeing is done in usa areas also? or maybe even build Negroe or mexican illeagles settlements housings in same way as done in israel now?

          Difficult to tell when dealing with peoples that have Viper snakes crawling around inside their brains eh.

          If one can think of it, and it’s mean and nasty, that’s war and we like it that way. Even those who proclaim to prefer peace (Christians) have evoked the worlds bloodiest events and mass killings).

          Now, we have a different ‘faith’ seeking to kill us infidels for no given nor particular reason(s) (that are remotely logical).

          Aside from manmade or induced events, mothernature is getting ready to put on her show for us (sooner than later). Imagine in the midst of all the expected chaos something like the ‘dome’ in Yellowstone reaching a height of 3,000 feet (after building) and some places are 30 feet in volcanic ash …which the rains will eventually bring down to nothing (got enough Life-Straws)?

          I’m not so sure anyone of TPTB are going to be conducting seizures on the people. They’ll be deep in their hidey-holes awaiting something we are not aware of (or doesn’t exist). The bottom line is that they would not be filling them to the extent they are if they only expect to be down there for a short time. What they are putting away suggests decades “down there.”

    Got a rad sticker it was cheap whuddya want. Lemme tell you a story I’ve said before I work for a LTL trucking company so here is the story one night working the outbound on the dock my boss comes over to me with a box 4x4x20 inches about 5lbs with a radioactive sticker on it and says secure this in the truck and close up the trailer and put the seal on it. Ok so I took the box and slipped it into the top of the end pallets wrap sticking up so it would be found right away when it got to the destination service center. So I go home after my shift go to bed when I wake up my boss calls me at home panicking. He says remember that box I told you to secure in the truck I said yep he said they can’t find it. I said whuddaya mean he said its gone and it’s highly regulated material and it is anything radioactive is. I told him it was under the wrap of a pallet sticking up so it would’ve been noticed. Well they ended up finding it. I was relieved because I was the last known person to handle it and didn’t want the Feds at my house. I told my boss I don’t wanna handle that shit anymore I don’t want the responsibility. I’d say that was about 3 yrs ago. I handle and transport haz in bulk amounts all the time.

    Lenin would be proud. And Boy Wonder Trudeau I’m sure will just add to this mess.

    It stated, “Last year, Canadian families spent more than 42% of their income on taxes and 38% on food, shelter and clothing combined.” And then went on to say: Since 1961, “taxes have grown much more rapidly than any other single expenditure for the average Canadian family,” the report states. Taxes have increased by 1,939% in that timeframe, while the amount spent on housing has gone up by 1,425%, clothing by 746%, and food by 645%.

      TEST; All them Canada Taxes..Does it go to Pay for what is seen on the TV show “Ice Road truckers”, when often most of the ice road deliveries are massive huge several truck loads of all types foods and goods etc etc that always get delivered to the First Nation peoples if thats what they are called?

      I always wonder where do them people get such massive cash to spend on so many huge laods of goods that amounts to everything one can think of from foods to furnitures to snow machine/sleds etc etc?

      because for at least 9 or 10 months each year they are snowed in and cannot work or maitain a real job correct?

      Yet their houses and villages look as nice and costly as any Top Rated usa suburbs that usually in usa only upper middle class folk can ever afford to live like that.

      Unless they ALL won a huge Lotto? It just Has to be canadas tax payers paying it all right?

      Kinda like a canadian affirative action freebees only for Ximos and injuns instead of negroes or mexicans?

      I have read many articles online that say that candaians are getting very fed up with the too many constant deamnds for more free lands or stuffs by peoples that their only claim to get it all is that they were There prior to white canadians was eh…

      If true? How many more centuries do whites have to keep Paying for entire lifestyles of usa injuns and canadian eximos? I do know usa negroes want whitey to Keep paying for it all for at least 10,000 More years!

      personally I hope enough white folk in Both nations decide to group as one and put total end to such armys of freebees demanders…Same as usa negroes its Never enough.

    One other thing. The fact that the govt has “placed this order” means that they may have already have a nuclear device in the US. It certainly isn’t going to try to deter detection before they try to slip the Trojan Horse within the US borders or get it situated if it was built domestically.

    A few million spent on “detection devices” really is a small amount- arguably designed to give the impression to the public that the govt is trying to do something about the nuclear threat in advance so it doesn’t look like it was caught flat footed if a bomb ever were to go off and at the same time creating a threshold level of anxiety in its escalation of “crisis creep” to justify greater intervention by the govt.

    THE MOST PERFECT FOUR PARAGRAPHS OF PURE TRUTH WRITTEN DURING THE COLLAPSE OF THE GLOBALIST FASCIST PSYCHOPATH CONTROLLED POLICE STATE HELL ON EARTH OF DAMNED AND DOOMED AMERICA:

    Here is an excerpt from an informative article by Dmitry Orlov:

    A whiff of World War III hangs in the air. In the US, Cold War 2.0 is on, and the anti-Russian rhetoric emanating from the Clinton campaign, echoed by the mass media, hearkens back to McCarthyism and the red scare. In response, many people are starting to think that Armageddon might be nigh—an all-out nuclear exchange, followed by nuclear winter and human extinction. It seems that many people in the US like to think that way. Goodness gracious!

    But, you know, this is hardly unreasonable of them. The US is spiraling down into financial, economic and political collapse, losing its standing in the world and turning into a continent-sized ghetto full of drug abuse, violence and decaying infrastructure, its population vice-ridden, poisoned with genetically modified food, morbidly obese, exploited by predatory police departments and city halls, plus a wide assortment of rackets, from medicine to education to real estate… That we know.

    This sort of downward spiral does not automatically spell “Apocalypse,” but the specifics of the state cult of the US—an old-time religiosity overlaid with the secular religion of progress—are such that there can be no other options: either we are on our way up to build colonies on Mars, or we perish in a ball of flame. Since the humiliation of having to ask the Russians for permission to fly the Soyuz to the International Space Station makes the prospect of American space colonies seem dubious, it’s Plan B: balls of flame here we come!

    And so, most of the recent American warmongering toward Russia can be explained by the desire to find anyone but oneself to blame for one’s unfolding demise.

    • Them Guys says:

      RON: That guy forgot to mention that most all he said on how bad usa is doing now etc…Was perpetrated BY, Mainly, the too many to count Russian kommie bolsheviks and German jewish franfurt school of marxism.

      so Yes america greatly suffers all that crap today.

      BUT..it would have never gotten this way if not for and by all those jewdeokommie bolshies and marxists that Brought this major mess here in first place eh.

    • Sgt,
      See my, and other peoples, posts in this thread for advice on what’s available.

      Most important thing, though, is not any instruments, it’s knowledge of what to do and not do from the first instant of a sudden flash and through the first 48 hrs of highest fallout threat.

      90% of the expected casualties, those affected by flash/blast/fallout, but not already instantly gone at ground zero, are wholly avoidable IF they knew what to do & not do beforehand.

      If everybody knew what to do & not do we’d essentially be making all future nukes, regardless their source, 90% less lethal!

      Google GoodNewsNuke and read ‘The Good News About Nuclear Destruction’ and then the detailed free nuke prep guide it points and links to near the end of it.

      Surviving nukes is amazingly much easier and more likely, for most that will be affected, than most can begin to imagine. Read that link above and see for yourself.

    26 shot in Chicago within JUST A FEW hours; three dead

    Three of 26 individuals who were shot in recent hours died. It was another area-wide shooting spree in Chicago.

    The shootings occurred within hours spanning Saturday afternoon through early Sunday morning.

    The gun violence was concentrated in the city’s black neighborhoods.

    The only apparent common denominators are the race and gender of the attackers and their victims. While thousands of black Americans die each year due to black-on-black violence, the far left immerses itself in denials of the ongoing holocaust. They pretend the most severe crisis facing black Americans is an epidemic of undetectables such as micro-aggressions, white privilege, and dog whistle expressions.

    What’s more, American holocaust deniers continue to pretend we have a gun problem when, in reality, we have a young black male problem.

    From chicagotribune.com:

    Three people were killed and at least 23 others were wounded in shootings across Chicago from Saturday afternoon through early Sunday morning, police confirmed.

    The most recent fatal shooting came at the end of a dramatic burst of violence on the West Side, where two people were killed and five others were wounded within 20 minutes.

    A 38-year-old man was shot dead in the 3600 block of West Fifth Avenue about 12:35 a.m., police said. He had just parked his car when five people approached. One of them pulled out a gun and shot the man in the head.

    He collapsed on his back in the middle of the street, his head resting in a shallow puddle of water. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

    This is too bad, but what I don’t understand is all these people shot and some killed. The new Bulls basketball play Wade gets his cousin shot and killed and the two that did it were arrested in less that 24 hours, but the rest go unsolved!!!!

    B.S. Black lives matter only when you are Star, or related to one, or a Political figure, AND IF YOU ARE SHOT BY A COP OR A WHITE MAN. BE BLACK ON BLACK, AND NO ONE CARES NOT EVEN THE BLACK POPULATION IN SHITCAGO. So I guess black lives don’t really matter. Unless you are looking or part of the beginning of this paragraph.

  45. A few months ago there was a govt contract solicitation on fedbizopps for radiation detectors that can fake radiation detection…
    http://imgur.com/WnPBHG6

    • Winston Smith says:

      That isn’t out of the ordinary though. They are used for training purposes. Even in the 50’s and 60’s, there were training devices used, but they were set up to be extremely sensitive to low levels of radiation from demonstration sources. Today though, people are much less cavalier about radioactive sources and most people do not want to be near any real sources. Thus, it is necessary to use fake instruments to do the same training.

  46. Ron Beal says:

    Personally, I would recommend every household have a radiation detector, however crude or basic. They are inexpensive and easy to use. Once contaminated, there is no ‘cure ‘ just provide comfort. Iodine tablets will help the thyroid to a point, prevent small radiation from affecting the gland. Unless hit directly, the residue or contamination from radioactive material can be prevented. Washing yourself, or an item with soap and a brush will clean the area. Duct tape around windows and doors will prevent dust from entering an area. A good rain will help in settling the contaminated dust. But a detector is critical…
