In addition to posting at the Enenews web cam forum, I have been commenting and posting webcam events on an environmental issues section at the Cass blog as Horse.  Started over two years ago in the Fukushima-Fuel Rod Removal starts November..Danger! topic. http://cassiopaea.org/forum/index.php/to...715.0.html
I comment on most of the Fuku and radiation topics in the Environmental Issues board.  http://cassiopaea.org/forum/index.php/board,44.0.html

We need more people watching and reporting to find those spots of color that are only on screen for seconds or less.

Good notes Horse, keep it up

Thanks CRLdemo, the observations made by enenews webcam forum members were revealing the actual conditions at the Daiichi disaster site. I watch the cams a lot but it takes many eyes watching and reporting to gather evidence. Most observations may not be spectacular, just letting the world know that someone is watching; but routine observations tell a story. Hope to keep others interested in being eyewitnesses to man's folly. The Café Rad Lab webcam forum is an excellent way to continue getting the word and the picture out.

9-23 Watched crane activity in the morning over both r1 and r3. Lots of insects on cam1. Gray, partly clouded skies. Saw a big frame rig hanging from the crane over r1 and thought another roof panel might be coming off soon. 12:45 big box rig hanging over r3.

14:30 Just watching Dr Ernest Moniz, Sec. Energy, on the Tonight Show, say how hard it is to cleanup nuclear particles. He was speaking about how we will know what Iran may be trying to hide. TEPCO/Japan has quite a few nuclear particles to hide.

Interested to track your Fukushima-cam notes over time.

Re: the Parchin samples -- From what I've read these are samples that have been collected by the site operators and then given to the IAEA? (Source - http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-34315492) If so, then they (the samples) will say (reveal) whatever the site operators want them to say. I say this because, if I wanted to - I could collect surface soil samples from Chernobyl, within 400 yards of the Unit 4 sarcophagus, and you wouldn't be able to identify them as having come from a contaminated site, let alone Chernobyl. This is because one of the first mitigation projects was to remove the topsoil and bring in new clean fill to lower worker doses in certain areas. That is not to say there is not contamination around the sarcophagus (of course there is), but it does mean that without knowing the exact quality control procedures and being able to identify necessary information like exactly where the samples were collected, how they were collected, and what the conditions of the materials were where the samples were collected, the data is meaningless. Scientific research is based around the premise that someone else should be able to come back to the exact point previously monitored, use the same methods, and repeat the experiment and get results that are within the same parameters as the original test. The point I am making is that a few random samples collected somewhere on or nearby the Parchin military site are relatively meaningless and useless scientifically for the most part.

"...Dr Ernest Moniz, Sec. Energy, on the Tonight Show, say how hard it is to cleanup nuclear particles." I thought the doublespeak was funny. When it serves their purpose, it is either hard to cleanup nuclear particles or it is easy. The nuclear particle cleanup of towns in Fukushima province came to mind; politicians want to declare it safe and nuclear industry helps them hide contamination and minimize the hazard to stay in business. I agree with your point "that a few random samples collected somewhere on or nearby the Parchin military site are relatively meaningless and useless scientifically for the most part.", just like the radiation readings we get from TEPCO at the Daiichi site.

9-24 18:00 Lost both tepcam network streams. TBS normal, the small crane in the middle moved a bit. Tomioka has light vehicle traffic. Had a problem 9-22 lost cam1 feed at midnight. Losing both cams and the backup reflectors at the same time for all evening is most unusual. Equipment checks okay, receiving other cam feeds. No tepcam recordings 9-24 pm. After sunset TBS showed the r1 tent area well lit; now dark and all the lights are dimmed out by the pixilation. Nothing to watch, wonder what's going on? Enenews is down for everyone when I check over there.

20:00 Saw the backup reflector feeds go for a minute. Cam4 20:13 spark. Cam1 won't stay up.

yep, 7:11 am ET enenews is not connecting. The TEPCO cams have been down before. I don't think I've ever come across a report explaining the non-op/edited video reports at their website about the webcams.

and enenews is back... but, that's not at all unusual that they go down now and then. Yes, the TEPCO site is horribly organized and their reports ought link directly to their pdf's, videos, etc.. Uruguay is one hour ahead of ET. 854am here now.

right! thanks for the reminder.... brb... Upon investigation, the template setting for date/time stamp is global. We will investigate further to see if a single forum change can be made. For now, because we are attracting people from all over the world we'll keep as is, but will see what is feasible. It may be you can change your profile's date/time stamp preferences. I'll report back on that shortly.

In your user control panel you can edit the date time stamp - Choose "Edit Options" from left panel:

Thanks for saying so H.! Glad to know. We are public. There's been notices via my other social media and L. has been sending notices as well... there's been a significant increase in traffic, lots of "guests" looking so far... so, we'll keep plugging topics/threads and driving traffic here so they start to "stick" ... Smile

Hi H;

Yes we are slowly growing the group.  Feel free to invite whomever you like.  As the conversation grows I will continue to spread the news through my circles.  But we are working our hardest to keep the conversation going while we boost the member base.

Thanks again for your time and support

9-25 Here's that cam4 spark I noted yesterday. Sparks aren't as frequent on cam4 but they do occur. If you think you see one on cam4 please post a time.

I'm seeing some of my favorite watchers logging in, glad to see you. Some of the new names I can guess, it'll be fun getting to know you all again.  

Chasaha, this board is great for showing off some of those captures we have.  Can't wait to see some of your stories and pics in some early days topic.  


MissFrill thanks so much for the Fukushima Hounds help.  Your replacement forum kept watchers in touch so we could continue sharing observations.  Post some of your pics here, we could use a futaba and tbs view.  


The rest, start posting so I can guess who you are.

P, hi, hadn't thought of that, I've a few odd bits I'll toss in there, thx.  I just know that Chas and others have captures and stories to tell.  The insert an image link button is my new favorite button.  Nuck can post a video link to his collection.  I could only get one video link insert per post so we might get several posts out of him.    Barticle can show me the pink dawn sky again so I know someone's watching and tell me what that funky yellow/brown color was in majia's pic.  I miss Teri, she knows those different shades of color.  Someone might know what that splotch was I saw.  Give 'em time, they might be shy, not much going on at the plant, the same old emissions, the occasional spark, a crane wiggled.  You've helped put together a webcam forum that can showcase the observations we've made over the years, thanks for all you've done Admin.

Thank You, H. and everyone else. I think it will be awesome to be able to read observations of events in one, hopefully organized, place using a chronological methodology to help piece together the story as it has presented over time.
