Shale and other clay-rich rock formations might offer permanent disposal solutions for spent nuclear fuel, according to a new paper by the U.S. Geological Survey. There is currently about 70,000 metric tons of this spent fuel in temporary storage across the United States.While no specific sites have been evaluated for storage potential in the United States, USGS scientists have looked at several research efforts, including projects that are underway in France, Belgium and Switzerland to confirm that shale formations in those countries are favorable for hosting nuclear waste repositories.

Safe ——- by Bear

That “I wasn’t aware”

Does not mean I do not care.

It’s merely that

Your burden is not mine to bear.

My own back is stiff

But not in pain, certainly not the agony

You purport yours to be.

*******

*******

That you live in misery

Is plain for me to see.

If I suggest “Why don’t you go

Back in your little room?”

It isn’t really fate and doom.

I merely prefer to not see

What you have come to be.

*******

 *******

If you have movement issues

And stagger and fall,

I’ll assume and accuse

“Too many pills won’t cure all ills.”

Even though I know you

No longer have any meds at all.

*******

*******

But if you cry in despair

As your sting-nettle skin

Burns with electric sizzles in the air

And I say

“Can’t you just take a pill and feel better?”

Even though I do know you

No longer have any meds at all.

*******

 *******

When the Jinn pull your hair

And whisper curses in your ear,

Alien words that I will never hear,

It doesn’t mean that

I don’t care

It’s merely what I prefer,

When I say  “I wasn’t aware.”

*******

*******

So if you love me

Go.

Hide your pain and misery.

Stay in your little room

Wallow alone in your damned

Doom and gloom

So what if your nerves are shot?

Please know that mine are not.

Don’t ask me for sympathy.

Go.  Let me be.

*******

*******

It’s not that I don’t care,

I just want to be safe when I say that

“I wasn’t aware.”

Wash Your Spirit Clean — Walela

~Wash your spirit clean~
Give away the things you don’t need
Let it all go and you’ll soon see
And you’ll wash your spirit clean
Wash your spirit clean
Go and pray upon a mountain
Go and pray beside the ocean
And you’ll wash your spirit clean
Wash Your spirit clean
Be grateful for the struggle
Be thankful for the lessons
And you’ll wash your spirit clean
Wash your spirit clean
Give away the things you don’t need
Let it all go and you’ll soon see
And you’ll wash your spirit clean
Wash your spirit clean

We believe the 1851 Treaty of Fort Laramie is the last legal document between the government of the u.s. and the N/DN/D/Lakota Nation, having been developed and adopted through the ancient, female-inclusive Oyate Omniciye “Circle Meetings of The People”. We understand that the many illegal “acts, treaties, agreements” are violations to the following; Article VI of the U.S. Constitution which states, “treaties made with Indian nations shall be the supreme law of the land”, Public Law 100-606 the “Genocide Convention Implementation act of 1988”, Article 1, Section 2, Part 3 of the u.s. Constitution which states, “Indians not taxed”; and the 1851 Treaty of Fort Laramie. We demand that the aforementioned and continued acts of genocide against the N/DN/D/Lakota Nation hereby immediately cease and the u.s. government officials and their states immediately comply with the above laws, convention and supreme law Treaty.

(Some of the ways that) Depression & Anxiety Affect Your Body

How  Depression & Anxiety Affect Your Body

Most people think of depression and anxiety as conditions of  the mind, influencing one’s mood and outlook on life. But that’s only  part of the story. For many people, the more common manifestations of  depression are physical, not mental, and they can have long-term  consequences as well.

Headache. Chronic  headaches, particularly tension headaches, occur frequently in people  with depression and anxiety. Headaches are most likely caused by  contracting the muscles of the scalp and neck, which is a common  physical reaction when you’re under emotional  stress.

Diarrhea/constipation. Anxiety is often  linked with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), which can manifest as  diarrhea or constipation. It’s possible that anxiety may make you more  aware of spasms in your colon or that anxiety affects the immune system  and may trigger symptoms of IBS.

Nausea/vomiting. These may be considered symptoms of mood and anxiety disorders. One  large study found that 41 percent of people who had major complaints of  nausea in the past year were eventually diagnosed with an anxiety  disorder, and 24 percent were diagnosed with  depression.

Heart disease. People who become  depressed after a heart attack are at increased risk for a second, fatal  heart attack, while people without heart disease who become depressed  increase their risk of developing or dying of heart disease. The  heart-mind link may also include anxiety, autonomic nervous system  dysfunction, inflammation and behavioral issues, as people who are  anxious or depressed are less likely to engage in heart-healthy  activities like exercising and healthy eating and more prone to weight  issues and smoking.

Osteoporosis. People with  major depression may have lower bone mineral density, a measure of the  strength of the bones, than those with no mood  disorders.

High blood pressure. Evidence suggests  that chronic anxiety may lead to high blood pressure. Anxiety is likely  to produce temporary spikes in blood pressure rather than persistent  hypertension. Frequent spikes can damage your blood vessels, heart and  kidneys and increase your risk of a stroke.
