Another Great Kickstarter Project To Measure Japan Radiation 

 “We are going to manufacture and sell the Smart Radiation Detector connected with iPhone / iPod Touch / iPad via microphone input, at a low price less than fifty dollars by using cheap PIN Photo-diode instead of expensive Geiger-Muller Tube to detect beta and gamma radiation. The actual electronic circuit is so simply it fits inside a match box or a FRISK mint-box, without battery.”

Lots on Radiation Hazard at the Sinkhole in the Examiner & a Puff Piece from HuffPo

Louisiana sinkhole radiation abuse and cover up continue

“[snip] . . . . Stanley Waligora, a New Mexico-based radiation protection consultant and leading authority on health risks of NORM confirmed that radium levels at Bayou Corne’s sinkhole are not within safe limits, but instead, roughly 15 times higher than the state’s acceptable level, Smith had said.

The information about radium had been buried in a state news release, had been poorly written, and had gone “out of its way to downplay the results,” Smith had said.
