and or finding out more about them and their life.   Have any of you ever you one of the people locator services that you pay for?  I know most of you on this board are young and use twitter and facebook and etc, but this was a person I last had contact with over 30 years ago and from random google type searches have found only spotty information.  Just wondering what your experiences have been, if they are worth the cost and etc.

Anyone down in here use PagePlus Wireless?

Update on Fukushima Radiation Plume

23 March 2014 - 05:16 PM




The Department of Health and Human Services has ordered 14 million doses of potassium iodide, the compound that protects the body from radioactive poisoning in the aftermath of severe nuclear accidents, to be delivered before the beginning of February.

According to a solicitation posted on the Federal Business Opportunities website, the DHHS asks contractors to supply, “potassium iodide tablet, 65mg, unit dose package of 20s; 700,000 packages (of 20s),” a total of 14 million tablets. The packages must be delivered on or before February 1, 2014.

Potassium iodide helps block radioactive iodine from being absorbed by the thyroid gland and is used by victims of severe nuclear accidents or emergencies. Under current regulations, states with populations living within 10 miles of a nuclear plant are encouraged, but not required, to maintain a supply of potassium iodide.



Top scientists have warned that if another major earthquake hits Fukushima, which is almost inevitable, it would mean “bye bye Japan” and the complete evacuation of the west coast of North America.







After U.S. Navy sailors on the USS Ronald Reagan responded to the 2011 Fukushima disaster in Japan for four days, many returned to the U.S. with thyroid cancer, Leukemia, brain tumors and more.

At least 71 sailors—many in their 20s—reported radiation sickness and will file a lawsuit against Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO), which operates the Fukushima Daiichi energy plant.

The men and women accuse TEPCO of downplaying the danger of nuclear radiation on the site. The water contaminated the ship’s supply, which led to crew members drinking, washing their bodies and brushing their teeth with contaminated water. Paul Garner, an attorney representing 51 sailors, said at least half of the 70-plus sailors have some form of cancer.

“We’re seeing leukemia, testicular cancer and unremitting gynecological bleeding requiring transfusions and other intervention,” Garner told New York Post.

What we have lost so far

13 March 2014 - 11:17 PM

Gross -  maybe had one good year left but that is doubful given his age


Smitty - 35 year old guy in the last year or two of his career - lst year undr 60 catches and 800 yards- noting special in the number 1 or even number 2 WR category - last game he hurt and may be not coming back from that injury in any significant way


Rest of the o lineman - bunch of back up type players most in them also old old old  - no big loss


Ginn - return specialist - had a few good catches last season - not anything special


Hixon - one catch of note all year that looked like a play run with him as a substitute  Armanti Edwards - no loss


so what are you fools crying about with 6 months left to go before the season starts?
