Tech companies, healthcare giants, defense contractors, top universities, the US government—you name it, Chinese cyber-spies have probably hacked it. And now, it seems likely, we can add one of the world’s preeminent marine research groups to the list.
Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution sustained a “sophisticated, targeted attack” that looks to have originated from China, according to Christopher Land, the organization’s general counsel and leader of its internal investigation. Continue reading

Fukushima’s radioactive waste reaches North America
(NaturalNews) Radiation from the Fukushima explosion has reached North America. On April 12, 2015, scientists collected seawater with radioactive isotopes from the Fukushima meltdown. The samples were collected at Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada, just north of the United States border, at the Ucluelet Aquarium. The report of the findings were made by Ken Buesseler, senior scientist at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI), located in Cape Cod, Mass. He believes that the amount of radioactivity detected was many times smaller than that of a dental X-ray. Mainstream media sources such as Reuters have also commented on the findings.

Fukushima radiation detected off coast of B.C. 2
Trace amounts of radioactive isotopes from Fukushima power plant disaster have been detected along B.C.’s shoreline for the first time.
The traces were discovered Feb. 19 from samples collected in Ucluelet are well below internationally established levels of concern to humans and marine life, says the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI). Continue reading
Fukushima radiation will reach California and Hawaii
Traces of radiation from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant meltdown will be detectable at the Pacific coast, in April 2014.
According to a scientific model developed by Vincent Rossi, a post-doctoral research associate at the Institute for Cross-Disciplinary Physics and Complex Systems in Spain, traces of Fukushima’s radiation will reach Alaska and coastal Canada first. Continue reading
