There is a consistency to 'nuclear' issues in the news,
and how these issues are dealt with and resolved could be
of great importance in national and international relations,
or so it would seem. There has been a call for using nuclear
solutions to address global warming, in the past, and also
now with the minimizing of fossil fuel imports. Yet it should
also be noted that these installations are, at present, still
some of the most dangerous threats to domestic security should
anything go wrong, beyond problems of nuclear waste- That is,
they could be serious targets and produce WMD devastation on
a scale unlike any other weapon, as damage cannot be rebuilt.
Thus, while it may be argued that 'nuclear' is the only way
to reduce a dependency on oil imports, most oil would seem
to go into transporation which nuclear plants cannot power,
and also the risk may be disproportionate on a very large
scale, as a solution to the problem- it could create more
problems than it solves. This is not a statement against
nuclear power, but it as a solution to the problems faced.
Maybe it is one of many simultaneous developments that some
countries will make as a future policy. Though, a mishap or
even attack could devastate an entire region and population.

The national TV news covered the attacks in Saudi Arabia,
and had an analyst of some sort saying prices could, in a
worst case scenario, lead to $100/barrel prices, inflation,
and global economic problems. If memory serves, it was a
goal of Osama bin Laden to raise the oil prices to $130-
180/barrel, as part of a campaign to bring 'the West' to
its knees through controlling oil supplies. So- what if
Saudi Arabia went 'offline' with its production? Would it
be possible that countries could adapt their production
and refinery infrastructures and also with massive goals
of conservation, to go beyond any major disruptions? This
question is not asked for pure speculation but for a sense
that the attacks on the major oil infrastructures have and
continue to be of great strategic interest, and what the
repercussions may be is of legitimate concern to citizens,
as changes would need to be enormous in 'business as usual'
to get through such a situation, but it may be possible if
energy consumption habits were to change, and massively,
to reflect the security situation that is ongoing. What
may happen should a country fall to terrorists as had
happened in Afghanistan? It may have the opposite effect
of the previous OPEC oil embargo in that, if no one were
to do business with a terrorist state, even if there was
oil to be had, the country itself and its livelihood may
be threatened with the expertise, technology, global and
economic culture needed for exports, and such an oil-based
culture would have no foundation in which to exist, except
to plunge into an abyss of pre-electrical development. It
is possible that such a horrible scenario for a people of
such countries themselves may not be out of the question,
and while it may not be reported, this would seem to be a
possiblity should terrorists succeed in their oil goals.

Many countries best resources are in adapting to changed
circumstances, though only after being required to adapt.
And this could possibly be such a situation, that there
may be no other choice than changing existing dynamics of
relationships, as ignoring the inequities that prop up the
current system is proving to be without defense. so too,
enough problems exist with the status quo to force change.
Thus, dynamic innovation, invention, and ingenuity could
do what bureaucratic gridlock could not and still cannot.
And, infrastructures evolved by adapting to such changes.
This is why the .US Energy Task Force was and remains to
be a national and internationaln security issue which is
holding back changes to do what has been done before, and
in keeping documents out of the public view, and refusing
to adapt to changes, threatens the viability of the .US
and other countries through an increased dependence upon
the forces which are now being held hostage by terrorism.
Industrial, not democratic, energy planning in privately
held meetings is threatening the populace, and continues
to this day. And may have exacerbated many problems now
in the news. This demonstrates the value of democratic
energy policy and planning which represents the public,
as it is critical to being able to change the outcomes by
implementing better plans for building peaceful futures.

any comments appreciated.

Qaeda Attack Kills at Least 9 Saudis, 7 Foreigners // oil  

	'Al Qaeda-linked militants killed at  least nine Saudis and seven  
foreigners in a string of attacks  in an oil-industry city on Saturday,  
then took hostages and  fled with security forces in hot pursuit.' ..  
'Saudi security sources said an American, a Briton, an  Egyptian, two  
Filipinos, an Indian and a Pakistani died in the  attacks on  
foreigners' compounds in the eastern city of Khobar,  along with two  
Saudi civilians and seven security force  members.' .... 'Witnesses  
said a body had been dragged through the streets,  apparently by  
militants, in the third attack against foreigners  in less than a month  
in the birthplace of Islam. It appeared  aimed at the crucial and in  
part Western-run oil industry.' .... 'In Saturday's spree, militants  
opened fire at the Al-Khobar  Petroleum Center building, believed to  
house offices of major  Western oil firms, before storming into the  
compounds housing  oil services offices and homes of employees working  
there, the  security sources said.' .. 'Witnesses said two cars with  
military markings drove into  the Apicorp complex where militants shot  
dead the child.'

	'Newer to the picture are the growing concerns about sabotage and  
unrest spilling over from Iraq to other nations in the gulf. "The real  
fear factor is at the heart, within Saudi Arabia," said Fareed  
Mohamedi, chief economist at PFC Energy, a consulting firm in  
Washington. "The idea that terrorists could target specific facilities  
within the kingdom brings the fear to a new level."' ... 'A year ago,  
analysts say, the world could manage without Iraq's two million barrels  
or so of daily production, but recovery in much of the developed world  
and roaring growth in China and India mean that the global market now  
needs every drop.'

US and Russia sign nuclear deal
	'The agreement was signed in Moscow by US Energy Secretary Spencer  
Abraham and the head of Russia's Atomic Energy Agency, Alexander  
Rumyantsev.' .... 'After a signing ceremony, Mr Abraham said the deal  
showed that "America and Russia were working to reduce the global  
threat posed by nuclear and radiological materials".'

Pakistan Test Fires Nuclear-Capable Missile // photos linked below

	'There was no immediate reaction from India, but an Indian defense  
ministry official told Reuters the test had been expected.' ....  
'Analysts said the test was a signal to the Indian government that  
Pakistan would not lower its guard, despite tentative peace moves.'  
.... 'Ghauri and Shaheen are different versions of a Pakistani missile  
series named Hatf, which is a reference to an ancient Islamic weapon.'

Nuclear plants beneficial, but caution is needed // .CN

	'The central government mapped out a scheme earlier this year to  
quadruple the current amount of nuclear power in use nationwide by 2020  
and raise the share of this type of energy in the country's overall  
electricity output to 4 per cent.' .... 'The clear-cut goal is in sharp  
contrast with the government"s previous stance on the issue, which  
simply favoured "moderate development" of nuclear plants.' ....  
'    Despite all the advantages of nuclear power, however, one question  
remains worrying: nuclear waste disposal.' .. 'Even in countries with  
advanced nuclear power technology, the disposal of radioactive waste is  
technically a hard nut to crack and requires extremely cautious  

EM-quote from: Kerry Says Focus on Iraq Endangers U.S. // on nuclear  

	'Mr. Bush's aides, including  Secretary of State Colin L. Powell, have  
argued that while the nuclear challenge from the North is serious, the  
country is broke and in no position to launch an attack. "You can't eat  
plutonium," Mr. Powell once said, explaining why Mr. Bush would not  
react to North Korean threats to produce more bomb fuel.' .. 'But Mr.  
Kerry argued that Mr. Bush had failed to understand the impact of  
American power in dealing with the North. "We have to be more artful in  
seeing what they see, not just thinking about it from our point of  
view," he said. He argued that "there are a number of options available  
to us that could bring people to the table, cooperative, simultaneous  
steps that could move you down the road."'

Autistic Children Show Outstanding Musical Skills // highly analytical  

	'The study, which was funded by ESRC, suggests that many children with  
this disorder have outstanding abilities in tone recognition. "A lot of  
work has been done on musical savants with exceptional musical memory  
and rarely found absolute pitch ability" says Dr Pamela Heaton who led  
the research. "But our research shows that even children without these  
special talents and no musical training can have highly developed  
musical 'splinter skills'. If we could develop effective non-verbal  
music teaching methods, we might be able to understand more about the  
way these children learn and process other information." A series of  
music workshops in which children with autism will be taught to read  
musical notation are currently being planned.'

stumbling blocks was leaving pets in the house.'

Blackout gave cities a breath of fresh air // silver lining...

	'As power plants were turned down in south-east Canada and the  
north-east and mid-west US, levels of pollutants fell, says  
meteorologist Russell Dickerson.' .. 'His team from the University of  
Maryland in College Park flew an aircraft over the middle of the  
blackout zone 24 hours after the power had gone down. "This was a  
unique opportunity to explore what would happen to air quality if power  
station emissions were reduced," he says.' .... 'Sulphur dioxide levels  
decreased by 90 per cent, there was around half the amount of ozone and  
visibility increased by 40 kilometres.'

In the Scrapyards of Jordan, Signs of a Looted Iraq

	'In the past several months, the International Atomic Energy Agency,  
based in Vienna, has been closely monitoring satellite photographs of  
hundreds of military-industrial sites in Iraq. Initial results from  
that analysis are jarring, said Jacques Baute, director of the agency's  
Iraq nuclear verification office: entire buildings and complexes of as  
many as a dozen buildings have been vanishing from the photographs.' ..  
'"We see sites that have totally been cleaned out," Mr. Baute said.' ..  
'The agency started the program in December, after a steel vessel  
contaminated with uranium, probably an artifact of Saddam Hussein's  
pre-1991 nuclear program, turned up in a Rotterdam scrapyard. The  
shipment was traced to a Jordanian company that was apparently unaware  
that the scrap contained radioactive material.' .... 'The sites now  
being monitored by the atomic energy agency include former missile  
factories, warehouses, industrial plants and sites believed to contain  
"dual use" equipment like high-precision machine tools that could be  
used either for civilian purposes or for making components for nuclear  
and other weaponry.' .... 'Mr. Zughayer said Jordanian military  
personnel had combed through the load and probed it with detection  
equipment. Officials at the atomic energy agency said that since the  
Rotterdam incident, radiation detectors at Iraq's borders had  
repeatedly picked up generally weak radioactive emissions from deep  
within loads of scrap.' ..'The agency said that in one incident on May  
15, radiation detectors began clicking when a truck carrying a load of  
scrap stopped at the Habur border crossing with Turkey; the truck was  
turned back.'

that 12-second sighting, Dranginis has dedicated himself to getting  
another look. To improve his chances, the 45-year-old surveillance and  
security expert from Manassas, Virginia, bought a 24-foot mobile

Arlington camera acts as a rolling tax collector // database nation.

	'County officials last month began using the BootFinder, a small,  
hand-held camera that scans license plates of parked cars to identify  
people with delinquent property-tax bills and unpaid parking tickets.'  
.... 'Two treasury workers patrol the city in a van, aiming the camera  
at the license plates of parked cars. The camera is connected to a  
laptop computer that compares the license owner's name against a  
database of persons with outstanding taxes or fines.' .... '    "Some  
may say, 'Why be so [stringent] just for parking tickets?' " Mr.  
O'Leary said. "But for us to come for you, you must owe at least $150  
in parking tickets or taxes, a minimum of three citations and nine  
written notices."' .. 'Arlington isn't using the camera because it has  
an unusual problem with outstanding debts, Mr. O'Leary said. "We're  
just always looking for new ways to skin the cat."'

New VoIP Tech Could Solve 911 Glitch // VoIP, Inc. patent application...

	'One of the chief drawbacks to the uptake of consumer VoIP offerings  
is that 911 operators are unable to capture the numbers of callers from  
VoIP phones.' .... 'The patent application is titled "Method and System  
for Back-up of Voice Over IP Emergency Calls," and it describes a  
technological process for a specific coding scheme to redirect certain  
call types based on emergency dialing patterns, such as 911, the  
company explained.' .. 'Based on the number pattern dialed, the call  
will be redirected to the legacy  emergency telephony system, allowing  
the user to reach critical fire, police and other services from  
VoIP-capable devices.' .. 'The device also provides a way to route  
calls during power failure by automatically passing calls out to the  
traditional PSTN.'

five gallons of gasoline from $16.60 to $10. About 40 percent of the  
fuel price consists of taxes.' .. 'Next week, Beirut is to host a  
meeting of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, which is

Electricity conservation urged

	'Higher than normal energy loads, combined with the outage of the  
City's Purdom Unit 8 generator and limited transmission capacity, are  
creating conditions that could compromise the reliability of the  
electric power system in and around Tallahassee. The high-energy loads  
are also related to the higher than normal May temperatures and dry  
weather.' .. 'Customers are asked to set air conditioning thermostats  
up to at least 78 degrees and turn off any unnecessary lights and other  
electrical appliances between 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. Customers can also help  
by avoiding chores requiring large electric loads such as washing and
