Forum Rules (Everyone Must Read!!!)

1] What you CAN NOT post.

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this forum to post any material which is:
- abusive
- vulgar
- hateful
- harassing
- personal attacks
- obscene

You also may not:
- post images that are too large (max is 500*500px)
- post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or cited properly.
- post in UPPER CASE, which is considered yelling
- post messages which insult the Armenians, Armenian culture, traditions, etc
- post racist or other intentionally insensitive material that insults or attacks another culture (including Turks)

The Ankap thread is excluded from the strict rules because that place is more relaxed and you can vent and engage in light insults and humor. Notice it's not a blank ticket, but just a place to vent. If you go into the Ankap thread, you enter at your own risk of being clowned on.
What you PROBABLY SHOULD NOT post...
Do not post information that you will regret putting out in public. This site comes up on Google, is cached, and all of that, so be aware of that as you post. Do not ask the staff to go through and delete things that you regret making available on the web for all to see because we will not do it. Think before you post!


2] Use descriptive subject lines & research your post. This means use the SEARCH.

This reduces the chances of double-posting and it also makes it easier for people to see what they do/don't want to read. Using the search function will identify existing threads on the topic so we do not have multiple threads on the same topic.

3] Keep the focus.

Each forum has a focus on a certain topic. Questions outside the scope of a certain forum will either be moved to the appropriate forum, closed, or simply be deleted. Please post your topic in the most appropriate forum. Users that keep doing this will be warned, then banned.

4] Behave as you would in a public location.

This forum is no different than a public place. Behave yourself and act like a decent human being (i.e. be respectful). If you're unable to do so, you're not welcome here and will be made to leave.

5] Respect the authority of moderators/admins.

Public discussions of moderator/admin actions are not allowed on the forum. It is also prohibited to protest moderator actions in titles, avatars, and signatures. If you don't like something that a moderator did, PM or email the moderator and try your best to resolve the problem or difference in private.

6] Promotion of sites or products is not permitted.

Advertisements are not allowed in this venue. No blatant advertising or solicitations of or for business is prohibited.
This includes, but not limited to, personal resumes and links to products or
services with which the poster is affiliated, whether or not a fee is charged
for the product or service. Spamming, in which a user posts the same message repeatedly, is also prohibited.

7] We retain the right to remove any posts and/or Members for any reason, without prior notice.


- PLEASE READ -

Members are welcome to read posts and though we encourage your active participation in the forum, it is not required. If you do participate by posting, however, we expect that on the whole you contribute something to the forum. This means that the bulk of your posts should not be in "fun" threads (e.g. Ankap, Keep & Kill, This or That, etc.). Further, while occasionally it is appropriate to simply voice your agreement or approval, not all of your posts should be of this variety: "LOL Member213!" "I agree."
If it is evident that a member is simply posting for the sake of posting, they will be removed.


8] These Rules & Guidelines may be amended at any time. (last update September 17, 2009)

If you believe an individual is repeatedly breaking the rules, please report to admin/moderator.

    Re: Japan nuclear plant explosion world wide aftereffects

    Might you have the link for that one ? so I can send it in email to some friends?
    Oh, this is not good for the world.

      I do recall that there is the so called "Ring of Fire" of all the major Volcanoes that are around the
      certain regions that go from Washington upstate region and other areas that go in a
      coastal map line. And if, God forbid, they go one after the other, then that is really
      bad, bad news.

      There was Mt. St. Helenas eruption a long time ago. Most people forget. Then there is the famous one
      in Hawai'i. it is on the big island that has Kona on the other side. They make that volcano a
      "tourist site." Yeah. I would not go near that volcano for all the tea in China!
      Hilo is the big city on the Big kahuna island: Hawai'i volcanoes national park it is listed on a
      map from 1950s. Pahala is south of it. Oh my, I feel for them too. Not a good thing to have that in their
      back yard.

        Four reactors are in trouble, three of which are seemingly melting down due to cooling systems failure.

        Unit 2 of the Tokai nuclear complex, which is near Kyodo and just 75 miles north of Tokyo, is reported to have a coolant pump failure and three units at Fukushima two of which have had hydrogen explosions.

        Meltdown fears rise after rods at Japanese nuclear reactor partially exposed

        TOKYO - Water levels fell far enough to partially expose fuel rods at Fukushima No.1 nuclear plant's No. 2 reactor, sparking meltdown fears, Jiji Press reported Monday.

        The dangerous exposure came after a cooling system at the reactor failed Monday afternoon.

        Earlier Monday, an explosion at the No. 3 reactor at the No. 1 plant, 120 miles north of Tokyo, sparked panic around 11:00am local time. However, Japan's nuclear safety agency said after the explosion that there was "absolutely no possibility of a Chernobyl" at the plant despite the ongoing nuclear concerns, according to national strategy minister Koichiro Genba.

        Ultimate impact of damage to Japan nuclear reactors still unknown

        The detection of the highly radioactive elements cesium-137 and iodine-131 outside the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant heralds the beginning of an ecological and human tragedy. The open question is whether it will be limited, serious or catastrophic.

        The two radioactive isotopes can mean only one thing: Two or more of the reactor cores are badly damaged and at least partially melted down.

        In the best case, operators will pump enough seawater and other coolants into the stricken reactor cores to squelch overheating. Such a success would prevent further releases of radiation beyond the unknown amount spewed into the air by controlled venting and the explosion of reactor containment buildings Saturday and Monday.

        In such a hoped-for scenario, the only casualties would probably be the handful of plant workers reported Sunday to be suffering from acute radiation sickness. But there's also the immense anxiety triggered by the incident and the toll of the subsequent evacuation on nearby residents.

        The consequences of the most dire scenarios are much harder to estimate. They include the loss of the facility, an expensive local cleanup - a foregone conclusion - and a wide-scale disaster that renders the countryside around the plant uninhabitable for decades.

        "There is a worst case, and then the question is, 'Is there a worst case beyond the worst case?' " said Gilbert Brown, a nuclear engineer at the University of Massachusetts at Lowell.

        Tokyo: The US Seventh Fleet said on Monday it had moved its ships and aircraft away from a quake-stricken Japanese nuclear power plant after discovering low-level radioactive contamination.

        The fleet said that the radiation was from a plume of smoke and steam released from the crippled Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, where there have been two hydrogen explosions since Friday's devastating earthquake and tsunami.

        The aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan was about 100 miles (160 kilometres) offshore when its instruments detected the radiation. The fleet said the dose of radiation was about the same as one month's normal exposure to natural background radiation in the environment.

          The Japanese finally found a way to get rid of Americans....

          Dose of radiation equivalent to one month's normal exposure? Hey, I'm no genius but I'd rather be exposed to small consistent amounts than a large dosage all at once.
