Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking - a method whereby hydrocarbons trapped within rocks are extracted - is expanding rapidly in Latin America. Fracking emits benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and xylene, which are considered by the World Health Organization to be carcinogenic and responsible for blood disorders and other immunological effects. Despite these adverse health effects, however, reserves have already been mapped out in Bolivia, Colombia, Venezuela, Paraguay, Uruguay, Chile, Argentina, Brazil and Mexico.

A Japanese citizen measured the radiation level in Chiba prefecture on 10/12/2015 and posted the footage on Youtube. The measuring location was Ohorigawa-river in Kashiwa city. It is approx. 190 ~ 200 km from Fukushima plant, 30 ~ 35 km to the center of Tokyo. The atmospheric dose was 0.25 ~ 0.30 μSv/h at about 1m from the ground.
It jumped up to 0.40 ~ 0.53 μSv/h on the sand beside the river.

Thanks to a new policy in the Canadian city, housing is mandated for everyone who has spent 10 days in a shelter or on the streets. Now, when officials of the city learn of an individual living in these circumstances, they move him or her (or the family) into a house or apartment. Mayor of the town, Ted Clugston, says 10 days is the absolute limit an individual may live on the streets – even though the city is normally quick to find housing for homeless individuals.
