The Secret World of Shadowy Traders, Shady Fixers, Luxury Vehicles & Multinational Corporations

Silverstein worked for the Los Angeles Times as an investigative reporter, for The Associated Press in Brazil, and has written for Mother Jones, Washington Monthly, The Nation, Slate, and Salon.[2] He is a self-described “vole” in the newspaper business, and an opponent of what he considers “false ‘balance'” in the news media.[2] In 1993, Silverstein started CounterPunch, a political newsletter. Silverstein left this publication in 1996. Silverstein previously wrote a regular column for Harper’s Magazine, called Washington Babylon. His last column was in September 2010. Silverstein was also Washington editor for Harper’s.[3] He drew attention in 2007 for a report in which he went undercover as part of an investment group with business interests in Turkmenistan, raising questions about journalistic ethics. Silverstein said that he could not have exposed the willingness of the companies to work with a Stalinist dictatorship using conventional journalism methods.[4][5][6] In December 2013, Silverstein was hired as senior investigative reporter by First Look Media.[7] In November 2014, Silverstein began writing for First Look’s The Intercept. There, Silverstein sparked some controversy for an article critical of the popular NPR podcast, Serial.[8][9][10] In February 2015, Silverstein announced his resignation from The Intercept in a series of Facebook posts calling his former employers a “pathetic joke.” Expressing anger and disillusionment towards the company, Silverstein stated, “I am one of many employees who was hired under what were essentially false pretenses; we were told we would be given all the financial and other support we needed to do independent, important journalism, but instead found ourselves blocked at every step of the way by management’s incompetence and bad faith.”[11] Silverstein launched the website Washington Babylon in 2016, for which he is editor-in-chief.[12] The site is named after his previous column at Harper’s and the 1996 book he co-wrote with journalist Alexander Cockburn. Silverstein said his goal for Washington Babylon is “to cover DC politicians and journalists like Hollywood celebrities — not the way they are worshiped by our current media masters.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ken_Silverstein

“NASA” – THORIUM REMIX 2016

Thorium is an abundant material which can be transformed into massive quantities of energy. To do so efficiently, requires a very different nuclear reactor than the kind we use today- Not one that uses solid fuel rods, but a reactor in which the fuel is kept in a liquid state. Not one that uses pressurized water as a coolant, but a reactor that uses chemically stable molten salts. Such a reactor is called a “Molten Salt Reactor”. Many different configurations are possible. Some of these configurations can harness Thorium very efficiently. If you have ever heard the word THORIUM before now, that is because NASA paid $10,000 to have MSR research documents scanned. NASA needs power for space missions, but current nuclear reactors are ill-suited for off-world application. This video explores the attributes of Molten Salt Reactors. Why are they compelling? And why do many people (including myself) see them as the only economical way of fully harnessing ALL our nuclear fuels including Thorium. THORIUM REMIX 2016 has been under development since 2012. I hope it conveys to you why I personally find Molten Salt Reactors so compelling, as do the many volunteers and supporters who helped create this video. Much of the footage was shot by volunteers.
