“Recently I [Bill Williams] was invited to assess an old Danish uranium exploration site in Kvanefjeld in southern Greenland.”
Inuit Ataqatigiit – the opposition party in the national parliament – had asked me to talk to local people about the health implications of re-opening the defunct mine.
An Australian firm called Greenland Minerals and Energy (GME) has big plans to extract uranium and rare earth minerals here. It would be a world first: an open-pit uranium mine on an Arctic mountain-top.

Questions, answers about the federal campus safety law: http://bigstory.ap.org/77b34155ba4548a690afcba46fd39cde&utm_source=android_app&utm_medium=wordpress&utm_campaign=share
Pros and cons about the Clery law. I work at a college and above all students must feel safe before learning can happen. It is about time that universities, of all types private and public – 2 year or 4 year, are transparent on reporting incidences of rape and drugs or other crimes.

A lot of my students over the years have felt safe based on ignorance of the nature of crimes perpetrated on campuses. They learn but many experience date rape or other compromising situations.
These are fresh, curious young people and they are our future. Don’t they deserve better from institutions or higher learning and academia in general?
