FAA Issues No-Fly Zone Over Exxon Pipeline Spill

Activist Post

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) moved quickly to block the media from seeing the full extent of the damage caused by the Exxon oil pipeline spill in Arkansas.

After some local news stations managed to get some breaking news images from a flyover of the area, the FAA issued a "Notice to Airmen" or NOTAM to stop all air traffic from the area.

Arkansas gets radioactive sleet and snow but no warnings

Activist Post

The sleet and snow that fell on January 15 2013 in White County Arkansas was not normal. Background levels in this area are 35cpm. The sleet and snow was showing an alert level above 100cpm. The high levels only lasted about 24 hours indicating a short half life of the hot particles.

This kind of exposure can reduce the immune system and may be the cause for recent spikes in flu and illness in this area and others. We can only assume because the event was short lived is why they are not warning parents to keep there children out of this unsafe wintery mix. Not creating panic or concern seems to be more important than public safety.

Why warn parents exposure to the snow and sleet is equal to flying at 30000 feet or exposure levels for nuclear plant workers right?

Medical Marijuana Initiative Makes Ballot in Arkansas

An Arkansas initiative to legalize medical marijuana appears has qualified for the November ballot, state officials announced Monday. After a first round of signature-gathering came up short, the group sponsoring the initiative, Arkansans for Compassionate Care, redoubled its efforts, turning in some 74,000 signatures in a bid to come up with the 26,000 additional valid voter signatures it needed to qualify. That did the trick.

"Our office verified over 69,000 signatures for Arkansans for Compassionate care," the secretary of state's office announced Monday afternoon. The group needed more than 62,000 valid signatures to qualify.

That means Arkansas will become the first southern state to vote directly on whether to okay the use of medical marijuana. Voter initiatives to legalize medical marijuana have never failed, with one exception: South Dakota, which twice turned them back.
