    How much more is federally supported flood insurance, as well as disaster relief through the Federal Emergency Management Agency, costing taxpayers?

    https://www.floodsmart.gov/floodsmart/

    Residents of High-Risk Areas Homes and buildings in high-risk flood areas with mortgages from federally regulated or insured lenders are required to have flood insurance. In high-risk areas, there is at least a 1 in 4 chance of flooding during a 30-year mortgage.

    Residents of Moderate-to-Low Risk Areas Homes and businesses located in moderate-to-low risk areas that have mortgages from federally regulated or insured lenders are typically not required to have flood insurance. Even though flood insurance isn't federally required, anyone can be financially vulnerable to floods. In fact, people outside of mapped high-risk flood areas file nearly 25% of all National Flood Insurance Program flood insurance claims and receive one-third of Federal Disaster Assistance for flooding. When it's available, disaster assistance is typically a loan you must repay with interest.

    A lender can require flood insurance, even if it is not federally required.

    One of the bigger scams going on right now.

    They could replace the glass windows with polycarbonate (unbreakable plastic) and get even more on these trains. Have not gotten to the point of people hanging out of the windows,doors, top like developed 3-world nations do.

    The socialist political system in most E.U nations need more tax revenues for their dependencies as usual. Are they going to stand for Ukraine, or being afraid of Putin flexing his muscle. Nothing new, just keep on talking.

    -Russia has fairly low taxes 13% etc.

    Google (USA) maybe pays 3% tax so these companies that cannot get rates similar to that are looking somewhere else. In the meantime the average person's tax rates and inflation (tax) go up.

    The McIntosh, Alabama CAES plant requires 2.5 MJ of electricity and 1.2 MJ lower heating value (LHV) of gas for each megajoule of energy output, corresponding to an energy recovery efficiency of about 27%.[5] A General Electric 7FA 2x1 combined cycle plant, one of the most efficient natural gas plants in operation, uses 6.6 MJ (LHV) of gas per kW·h generated,[6] a 54% thermal efficiency compared to the McIntosh 6.8 MJ, at 27% thermal efficiency.

    If the Japanese people are willing to pay extra for their energy in order to not have nuclear power then they should have that choice (What about companies that use electricity?). It is the Gov and Tepco's fault for losing the populace's trust on this issue. The quote is alluding to mounting costs that have not been passed onto the consumer --> I believe this is true and the true costs will be rather shocking.

    Right now the choices here are poor and people are balking. What/Where are the choices?

    Posted in: The Japanese gov’t says nuclear power remains essential, saying the economy cannot afford the mounting costs from importing gas and oil, resulting in utilities hiking rates. Do you agree?

    Boeing does not expect to make major metal parts with 3D printing** for at least 20 years**, though company officials say that time frame could be accelerated.

    GE is among the large manufacturers active in 3D printing. It has been using the technology to make fuel nozzles for its LEAP jet engines, which will go into service in 2015.

    Big difference in thought here, but 2015 is less than 2 months away.

    The Dong-A Ilbo exclusively obtained on Thursday a joint investigation report issued by the Japanese government’s abduction issue team and Choi Seong-yong, representative of South Korean abductee families. The report contains an interview with North Korean hospital staff who witnessed death of Megumi. In this report submitted to the Abe administration, the both Japanese and South Korean parties met with the two former hospital staff who worked at Pyongyang Hospital No. 49, a psychiatric hospital where Megumi died, in a third nation on Sept. 11. This fact would provoke a nation-wide controversy since the Abe administration has concealed the Megumi issue for two months, which has drawn great attention from the Japanese public.

    The central government on Friday denied a report out of South Korea claiming that Megumi Yokota, who was abducted by North Korea at the age of 13 and remains a symbol of the four-decade campaign to recover kidnapping victims, died in 1994 of an overdose. Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said there was “absolutely no credibility” to a report in the Dong-A Ilbo newspaper about Megumi Yokota’s death at a North Korean psychiatric hospital 20 years ago. The paper cited a report by South Korean activist Choi Sung-yong and Japanese investigators.

    They need to give costly explanations of why they are increasing the Japanese consumer's electrical rates to pay for all these nuclear retro-fits, fukushima disaster, and the costs of importing all the oil for the energy (don't use nuclear). If the rates do not go up then expect consolidation and centralization + the rates will still go up once that is done.

    WIth all that in mind solar/wind is a good choice.

    The science shows Ebola can’t be spread through casual contact,

    -that's not what the CDC is saying in regards to the eBola virus.

    http://www.cdc.gov/vhf/ebola/transmission/index.html

    When an infection does occur in humans, the virus can be spread in several ways to others. Ebola is spread through direct contact (through broken skin or mucous membranes in, for example, the eyes, nose, or mouth) with:

    a1. blood or body fluids (including but not limited to urine, saliva, sweat, feces, vomit, breast milk, and semen) of a person who is sick with Ebola

    a2. objects (like needles and syringes) that have been contaminated with the virus

    a3. infected fruit bats or primates (apes and monkeys)

    This is probably a worthwhile solution to an existing and getting worse problem. I would say the future for this field and financial instruments of this type are very good. Makes very good sense since family generation is the secret to storing wealth long term.

    Posted in: This is a great idea to use a financial product to spur the marriage-hunting movement. The falling population could be fatal for local financial institutions, so this is an example of how they can tackle the issue by themselves.

    http://dailycaller.com/2014/10/27/released-ebola-nurse-kaci-hickox-works-for-cdc-her-lawyer-is-a-white-house-visitor/

    Here’s an overlooked factor that could have contributed to her White House-backed release: Hickox is an official CDC Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) officer who performed work for the CDC in recent months.

    Hickox was a Class of 2012 member of CDC’s two-year EIS officer training program, according to the official program for CDC’s 2014 EIS Conference (p. 98), which was held from April 28 to May 1, 2014. Hickox was featured in a photograph in the program

    Hickox was listed as an “EIS officer” for the CDC in program materials for a CDC course she taught in July 2014. She was specifically listed as an active “EIS officer” as recently as July 18, 2014, according to CDC documents.

    Hickox was a presenter at the CDC conference this spring, according to the program’s list of presenters (p. 103).

    Hickox taught an April 29 session called “Contact Investigation of Health Care Personnel Exposed to Maternal and Neonatal Tuberculosis—Clark County, Nevada, 2013″ at the conference (p. 3).

    If this the the same weaponized ebola strain that the CDC has a patent (and vaccine) to then this lady is probably correct in that there is nothing for her to worry about, -but for everyone else?

    The Federal Law is very clear on this and states she can be arrested and detained.

    April 4, 2003 By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including section 361(b) of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 264(b)), it is hereby ordered as follows: Section 1. Based upon the recommendation of the Secretary of Health and Human Services (the "Secretary"), in consultation with the Surgeon General, and for the purpose of specifying certain communicable diseases for regulations providing for the** apprehension, detention, or conditional release of individuals to prevent the introduction, transmission, or spread of suspected communicable diseases, the following communicable diseases are hereby specified pursuant to section 361(b) of the Public Health Service Act: (a) Cholera; Diphtheria; infectious Tuberculosis; Plague; Smallpox; Yellow Fever; and Viral Hemorrhagic Fevers (Lassa, Marburg, **Ebola, Crimean-Congo, South American, and others not yet isolated or named).

    NOTICE Executive Order 13295 was amended on July 31, 2014. Subsection (b) was replaced with the following: "(b) Severe acute respiratory syndromes, which are diseases that are associated with fever and signs and symptoms of pneumonia or other respiratory illness, are capable of being transmitted from person to person, and that either are causing, or have the potential to cause, a pandemic, or, upon infection, are highly likely to cause mortality or serious morbidity if not properly controlled. This subsection does not apply to influenza."

    If gluten seems to be the problem try spelt (different type of gluten) and see if that is better. The problem with wheat is that it has changed into a sort of FrankenWheat last 50+ years.
