So depending on what the background radiation is, this is right at or perhaps slightly over the legal maximum. The typical background radiation is about 3mSv/yr. Depends on how the device is calibrated, that is, perhaps the background is already zeroed out.

  • Students lead living wage protest at University of Virginia amid climate of intimidation “Supervisors [of contract employees] reportedly told people, ‘If you go organize or go to a meeting, you’ll be fired,’” said Susan Fraiman, a professor at the University of Virginia and a long-time activist for living wages for staff and contract workers on campus. In a right-to-work state like Virginia, that might not be illegal — but, according to an advisory opinion issued to UVA in 2006 by then-Attorney General (now Governor) Bob Mc Donnell (R), taking into account the wages your contractors are paying the employees that work on campus when awarding contracts might be.

  • GOP led Wisconsin legislature votes to ban private abortion coverage The Republican led Wisconsin assembly voted to ban private insurance coverage for abortions and mandate abstinence-only sex education classes Wednesday morning, according to The Green Bay Post Gazette.

  • Why I am leaving the Empire, by Darth Vader After almost 12 years, first as a summer intern, then in the Death Star and now in London, I believe I have worked here long enough to understand the trajectory of its culture, its people and its massive, genocidal space machines. And I can honestly say that the environment now is as toxic and destructive as I have ever seen it.

  • http://www.forbes.com/fdc/welcome_mjx.shtml After resigning from Goldman Sachs with guns blazing and ink burning, former executive Greg Smith can guarantee there will be no love lost for him on Wall Street. Smith, who published a widely-discussed op-ed in Wednesday morning’s New York Times, has been mocked and doubted.

  • Wisconsin Activists Convicted Of Misdemeanors For Peaceful Sit-In August 25, 2011. This was the day that most state workers saw their paychecks go down by about 15%. Naturally, being as we live in Wisconsin, there were several rallies scheduled on this day. The last rally got done at approximately five fifty, ten minutes before the close of the Wisconsin State Capitol. At the end of the rally everyone marched in the building as police held doors open for us. I was busy trying to get some friends out of jail who had been arrested for driving down a “restricted” street. At about 6:20, when the building had already been closed for twenty minutes, I got in. What I found was about a thousand people in the rotunda. All were shouting and chanting and it was a very jubilant occasion. At about 6:45, Capitol Police Chief Charles Tubbs requested that everyone leave

  • San Onofre Nuclear Plant Probed By The Feds After Radiation Leak A nuclear reactor on the California coast will remain shut down indefinitely while a team of federal inspectors determines why several relatively new tubes became so frail that tests found they could rupture and release radioactive water, a federal official said Thursday.

  • (1pm) Outside City Council 202 C Street -- The Mayor and his rich downtown cronies are at it once again, pushing a new deal at the 11th hour to give rich hoteliers the keys to the Convention Center and let them loot it for their own profit. If the Mayor and his allies pull this off, it's a direct threat to hundreds of union jobs at the Convention Center and will stifle the voices of all the workers who have a direct interest in the Convention Center. The City Council has a chance to stop this brazen giveaway, and we're going to make sure they hear from the taxpayers who may be on the hook for the giant bill while the profits go to hoteliers.
