We need negotiations

High Explosives. The Americans,
Russians, Iranians and Saudis are the interested parties and they all
need to get it into their heads that the human dimension is the first
priority. Four way talk are tricky but we do not need to have one or
other of the participants come out on top, all we need is for ALL
parties to agree to stop making things worse.
geostrategy needs, for
the very first time to be
subordinated to basic concepts of human decency. Not going to be easy
for us to make it happen, definitely not going to be easy.
The focus of the
talks has to be
about halting the human tragedy,
not about not about the removal of Mr Assad or any other of the myriad
factors that bedevil the Middle East. In fact keeping Mr Assad in
power, at least for the time being would have a cooling effect on the
situation and could be the path to a calmer ME
Would the talks
having Dr Bashar Hafez al-Assad present
at the talks? I think not, his input could only reduce the probability
of success, the subject of his removal or retention could be the big
distraction. He is to be recognised as the leader of the sovereign
state and if we still want to adhere to the rather dented and shaky
notion of international law the talks have to recognise this fact.

Scanning the American
news I see a
a fair amount of irritation over
what is seen as the Europeans not doing nearly enough about the
Should we be doing more? What do you want of us? Would you like to get
another World War going?
Unlike the US Europe has very much to lose, some of this is financial,
rapidly growing economic integration between Russia and the EU is worth
three hundred and fifty billion dollars, that is the prize.
To suggest that Mr Putin is intrinsically evil and an imminent threat
and that the EU countries should throw away all of the progress made
since the fall of ‘The Wall is strange, to say the least. What puzzles
me most though about the whole business is that the Europeans failed to
adopt an approach that could have prevented the Ukraine tragedy
Oh, I forgot to mention, we have already more than doubled the risk of
a nuclear war by allowing this to happen.

I would suggest that
there is an
element of the Theological or at
the very least Philosophical permeating modern scientific thinking, for
instance in physics there are those who in their language use
term 'teleport. We even have a book on the subject of the Higgs bosun
entitled the ‘The God Particle!
idea that feeds
in to the very necessary human
belief in agency. The act of observation actuates events. I prefer a
‘pathway approach where discovery or observation, if it takes place, it
nothing more or less than a waypoint.

A Japanese professor has stated in a TV interview that a human can
safely consume 32 grams of plutonium per year. The poor man, who cannot
have much of a long-term career is Professor Tadashi Narabayashi, a
member of the Japanese Nuclear Safety Commission has been quoted saying
that up to 32 grams of plutonium could safely be consumed with food.
The DOE standard for
occupational air concentration of plutonium
is 32 trillionths of a gram per cubic meter
Not surprisingly the
showing the interview has been

reactor number 3, when it blew up and ejected a large
dirty coloured plume of smoke and debris, seems to have been very
different from the other explosions in that it released particles
containing dozens of radionuclides, some of them very nasty.
very dangerous particle was detected around 300 kilometres away
and hot particles from Fukushima have been found as far away as Norway
current models for assessing risk from radioactivity seems to be
based on average readings, but the accident in Japan has spurred work
in this area and we should expect future models to be corrected to
include the probabilities of injestion of these potentially deadly
particles. Some researchers believe that even tiny particles in the
order of one hundred thousandth of a metre in diameter can have a high
lethality; with a greater than 50% likelihood of causing a cancer if
the particle is retained in the respiratory system or the oesophagus,
stomach or gut.
seems to me there could be large scale underreporting of the
cancers caused by the nuclear industry.
