BY ERIK SHUTE AND HARUMENDHAH HELMY You're watching breaking headline news analysis from Newsy This is Newsy Now and here are the headlines you need to know. In world news — a 6.6 magnitude aftershock rattled northeast Japan earlier today. This, as the country marks a month after the devastating earthquake and tsunami disasters. CNN has more, reporting that the aftershocks were near the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant. “We don’t have an exact location but I can tell you that there has been an impact on the nuclear plant. According to TEPCO, in public statements they’ve just made to reactors 1, 2 and 3. They need the power in order to keep the water pumping and keep the cores cool. They’ve also had to evacuate all the workers of the plant.” Still in world news — Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi’s government has OKd a peace plan offered by the African Union. The plan reportedly includes an immediate ceasefire. Leaders from the union are now in talks with rebels in Benghazi. Al Jazeera has more on the rebels’ concerns. "...there's clearly a question over what people think the motivation behind the African Union visit is. Whether it's a genuine attempt at conflict resolution. Or, as they certainly believe here, whether it's an attempt by people who have close economic and political ties to Gaddafi to try and shore him up, offer him some legitimacy and making him appear statesman like." In U.S. news — President Barack Obama is set to unveil his long-term plan to cut the nation’s deficit. KARE has more. “The president is expected to call for cuts in defense, medicare and medicaid spending as well as higher taxes on Americans making over $250,000 a year. But even before those words are out of his mouth, Republicans are saying the president’s plan will have a bad effect on the economy. The president raised taxes $800 billion, he’s calling for a new 1.5 trillion in tax increases. You slow down economic growth.” Still in the U.S. -- Donald Trump won’t rest until he’s seen President Barack Obama’s birth certificate. After reigniting the conversation this week, Republicans and former reality TV stars have show support in his search -- namely Sarah Palin. But Good Morning America discovers some inconsistencies in their argument. REPORTER: Donald trump was on TV again with his relentless round-the-clock questioning of President Barack Obama. Now the efforts seem to have won a partial convert. Mainly Sarah Palin on Fox News.” PALIN: “I appreciate that the Donald wants to spend his resources in getting to the bottom of something..." REPORTER: “But rewind just two months. In February, this was her response when asked if she thought it was worth questioning the president's citizenship.” PALIN: “I don't. I think it's distracting. It gets annoying.” REPORTER: “Now she seems decidedly less annoyed." In the tech world -- not willing to shell out your life savings for Adobe’s creative applications? Well, now software company is ready to let comsumers rent its programs at a monthly price. CNET reports users can rent the software with a 12 month subscription or skip the commitment and pay month-to-month but at a higher price. Prices range from $29 per month on single apps to $199 for its entire set. CNET adds renting is rarely financially advantageous, and will probably have little effect on software cracking, but consumers “have a long history of paying for convenience and being attracted to small monthly sums over the monolithic initial payout.” 'Like' Newsy on Facebook for updates in your news feed Get more multisource video news analysis from Newsy Transcript by Newsy

BY BRANDON TWICHELL ANCHOR MEGHAN MURPHY You're watching multisource world news analysis from Newsy From bad to worse. The Japanese government announced its nuclear disaster is now at Level 7 on the International Nuclear Event Scale - the same level as the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in 1986. And while the Japanese government reassures citizens the radioactive material release is just 10 percent that of Chernobyl, a nuclear engineer tells CNN he’s not so sure. “Chernobyl was covered by this point in time, and here this accident is just continuing on. There was, what this means is there have been ten thousand trillion disintegrations every second have been released already from the plant. So this is based on what has already happened, and really it can get worse as you look forward.” The president of the nuclear weapon-free group The Ploughshares Fund agrees telling MSNBC the situation in Japan is a - quote - “slow-motion Chernobyl.” “You’re seeing the possibility that you could emit as much radiation over a longer period of time that you saw in Chernobyl. So we’re going to see months--even under a best-case scenario--months of instability at this site, months of leaking radiation, and no clear solution in sight.” But a researcher at Kyoto University tells DailyTech there’s one major thing that separates Japan’s nuclear disaster from Chernobyl’s: "If everything inside the reactor came out, obviously that would surpass Chernobyl... But at Fukushima, most of the reactors' radioactive elements remained within the reactor. That's a big difference." And a writer for The Wall Street Journal’s MarketWatch says raising the level doesn’t make the two disasters equal. “Fukushima is not Chernobyl... And someday, investors might wish they spent less time reacting to dramatic headlines, and more time determining the point at which Japan’s crisis will have finally turned a corner.” But despite the government’s reassurances, one Japanese citizen tells Al Jazeera he’s had it with the official response. “If they’re going to announce something like that, they should do it in a way that isn’t so alarming to people. If one comes out and says it’s at level 7 and the same as Chernobyl, and then a video of Chernobyl starts playing, of course people will be worried.” The Japanese government has asked citizens within a 19 mile radius of the nuclear plant to evacuate. Scientists at the plant continue to work on keeping the reactors stable. Get more multisource video news analysis from Newsy. Follow Newsy_Videos on Twitter Transcript by Newsy

BY ERIK SHUTE AND HARUMENDHAH HELMY You're watching multisource politics news analysis from Newsy. This is Newsy Now and here are the headlines you need to know. In world news — two highly decorated Western journalists were killed yesterday in the besieged city of Misrata. Now, the UN human rights chief is saying the alleged cluster bomb used by pro-Muammar Gaddafi forces could be a war crime. Here's euronews. "At least 10 civilians are reported dead and more than 100 people wounded in the latest fighting in Misrata. Two western photographers are among those killed. Tim Hetherington, a British-American Oscar-nominated filmmaker working for the US magazine Vanity Fair. He and award-winning American photographer Chris Hondros were among a group of journalists caught in a mortar attack.” In world news — Japan has now imposed a ban on entering an exclusion zone around the crippled Fukushima Daiichi Nucler Power Plant. People will only enter the area under government supervision. Here’s KSDK. “Japan has declared a 12-mile of evacuated area around its troubled Fukushima nuclear facility. A no-go zone. The area was evacuated after last month's earthquake and tsunami disrupted the plant's cooling system. Because the area is now deemed a no-go zone, people who enter could be jailed. It’s expected to take about six months to bring the reactors into a cold shutdown.” In U.S. news — President Barack Obama appears to be on a mission to get more ‘friends.’ He delivered a town hall speech in the Facebook offices yesterday. Here’s KCNC, with what President Obama had to say. “At Facebook's California headquarters Wednesday he told a young crowd his plan to trim $4 trillion is a better solution than the GOP proposal. He also criticized Republican efforts to lower taxes for the rich while making steep cuts to Medicare and Medicaid.” In sports -- Major League Baseball has had enough of Dodgers owner Frank McCourt’s marital troubles. It says his pending divorce settlement and financial woes are paralyzing the team and now they are taking control. KABC explains this historic decision. ANCHOR: “Major league baseball is making a rare move, taking over the L.A. Dodgers, as a divorce drama involving the team's multimillionaire owners threatens to tear the team apart.” REPORTER: “Things have not been going well for the McCourt's lately. Frank and Jamie are in the middle of a nasty divorce, season ticket sales have plummeted over the past several years. And the dodgers have been struggling to make payroll.” FAN: “The way things have been going recently, it's not a real surprise, no.” REPORTER: “Baseball commissioner, Bud Selig says he's taking control of the dodgers to protect, what he calls, quote, ‘one of the most prestigious franchises in all of sports.’” In entertainment -- Can’t wait for the “Prom” episode of Glee? Neither could one of its extra cast members who revealed the Glee prom king and queen via Twitter. A day later, Fox fired the actress. KVUE has more. “[A] tweet from an extra on "glee" is firestorm at fox. Nicole Crowther, who played a background high school student series revealed the names of the prom king and queen. The show's co- creator, Brad Falchuk responded, ‘Who are you to spoil something talented people have spent months to create?’ He added that he hopes she’s qualified to do something other than entertainment.” 'Like' Newsy on Facebook for updates in your news feed Get more multisource video news analysis from Newsy Transcript by Newsy

BY ERIK SHUTE AND HARUMENDHAH HELMY You're watching multisource headline news analysis from Newsy. This is Newsy Now and here are the headlines you need to know. In world news — A group of former world leaders arrive in North Korea today to meet with the country’s leaders. Bloomberg reports, the delegation is led by former U.S. President Jimmy Carter. “Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter will focus on food shortage and human rights and de-nuclearization when he meets North Korean leaders this week. The four-member group includes former Finnish President Martti Ahtisaari, former Norwegian Prime Minister Gro Harlem Brundtland, former Irish President Mary Robinson as well. That trip was arranged at the invitation of the North Korea.” Still in world news — the Syrian government is escalating its crackdown on protesters. This, as the international community continues to weigh sanction options. Fox News reports on the deadly state of affairs. “The death toll rising as the government crackdown escalates in Syria. New reports claim at least 400 protesters have been killed since the uprising began. Late last night, the State Department started telling Americans in Syria to get out now while, quote, commercial transportation is readily available. The U.S. Embassy is urging families and nonessential personnel also to leave due to the quote, uncertainty and volatility in Syria.” Also in world news — today marks the 25th anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. The Japanese government said earlier that it is using lessons learned from THAT disaster to deal with its own crisis. Here’s euronews. Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said: 'The studies and research on what health problems could emerge based on Chernobyl have became an asset shared by all humanity.' Edano said that Fukushima crisis is different, as the plant had leaked about one-tenth of the radioactive material which was released at Chernobyl.” In U.S. news — the five color-coded terrorism warning system, effective since 9/11, will make way for a new system today. Here’s NBC. “The new terrorism advisory system goes into effect, it replaces the five color-coded warning system. Alerts will note elevated or imminent threat types. They will be offered on the web, Facebook and Twitter.” Still in U.S. news -- the FBI is finding new information while conducting their nationwide manhunt for Earl Moore. Moore is responsible for failed bomb attempt at a Colorado mall. The incident coincided with the anniversary of the Columbine tragedy, but KDVR reports there might be no connection at all. “Officials are announcing the man suspected of the attempted bomb explosion itself at Southwest Plaza was troubled by money problems. The failed attempt at blowing up a homemade bomb happened a week after he was released from a federal prison. Back in 2004, he was convicted from a metro area apartment for not paying rent. Also the FBI says the foiled bombing likely not related to the 12 year anniversary of the Columbine high school massacre.” In the tech world -- Sony has finally entered the tablet war. The electronics giant unveiled not only one -- but two tablet computers running Google’s Android operating system. WCCO has more on the tablets, codenamed S1 and S2. “It took awhile but Sony has finally introduced its first tablet computer. These are the S1 and S2 shown off in Japan. They have Wi-Fi. It has a 9 1/2 screen. The S2 is smaller with 5 1/2 screens that can be folded.” Stay with Newsy**** for more analysis on news throughout the day.

BY ERIK SHUTE AND HARUMENDHAH HELMY You're watching multisource tech news analysis from Newsy. This is Newsy Now and here are the headlines you need to know. In world news — Pakistan’s foreign secretary is speaking out against raids like the one the U.S. conducted to kill Osama bin Laden. Here’s KPRC. “Foreign secretary condemning the U.S. for coming into what he said is their sovereign country, and performing this raid without giving them prior knowledge. He says raids like this may be in violation of international law, though he didn't point fingers at this raid in particular.” Still in world news — workers at the Japan’s Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant entered the building which housed the heavily damaged Reactor No. 1. KPIX reveals why it’s significant. “It is their first time in the building since the first days after the March 11th earthquake. The workers are installing ventilation machines to try and reduce radiation levels.” Also in world news — the Syrian government is again cracking down on protesters. This time, the crackdown took place in a suburb of the capital city, Damascus. Human rights groups say government forces have killed at least 560 people since protests began in March. Here’s euronews. “Syrian soldiers have stormed the Damascus suburb of Saqba and arrested hundreds of people, the AFP news agency reported on Thursday. AFP quoted an unidentified rights activist as saying some two thousand troops swept through the town and detained at least 300 people.” In U.S. news — later today, the government will officially remove grey wolves from the endangered species list in some parts of the U.S. KSDK and CNN explains. “The Obama administration took them off the list in eight states including Illinois. The decision will turn control of approximately 5500 wolves to various state wildlife agencies. This comes after pressure from agricultural supporting moves to curb wolf attacks in livestock and big game in the Western part of the country.” “Idaho and Montana plan to reinstate a wolf-hunting season in fact, this fall.” In the tech world -- after pending lawsuits and accusations of privacy invasion -- Apple has squashed its tracking bug. KDVR explains the update. “This the software release yesterday follows through on the recent promise to revise a feature to log user allow future movements by a two year. New location data will not be cap for kept for more than through week after the changes to that owns operating to the phones operating system are phone's operating system are made.” In entertainment -- critics marveled at his “eternal youth”, but today Hollywood is mourning the loss of child star Jackie Cooper. Spanning a career from the Great Depression to playing the role of Superman’s boss -- Cooper played roles in more than 100 Hollywood movies. Here’s KDFW. “Jackie Cooper passed away last night. He was the youngest actor to be nominated for Oscar when he played Skippy a comic book character at the age of 9. Cooper was the member of the our gang short films in the 1920s and 30s and later played Perry White on the Daily Planet alongside Christopher Reeves. He was 88-years-old.” Stay with Newsy**** for more analysis on news throughout the day. For Newsy Now, I’m Jim Flink-- highlighting the top headlines making you smarter, faster.

BY JENN LONG You're watching multisource world video news analysis from Newsy. Out with the old and in with the new. Japan is now looking for its sixth prime minister in five years. Naoto Kan resigned from his post Friday morning after holding the position for only 15 months. Euronews explains. “The aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami saw Kan’s approval rating drop below 20 percent. He was much criticized for his handling of the radiation crisis at the Fukushima nuclear plant, successive governments have also struggled to deal rooted economic problems in the face of a divided parliament.” Kan’s announcement Friday came around the same time Japan’s nuclear agency released a statement regarding Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant. And the report found the radioactivity at Fukishma ‘equals 168 Hiroshimas’. The Global Post compares the two disasters… “…the government calculated that the amount of cesium released in the six months since the three reactors were hit by the earthquake and tsunami is 15,000 tera becquerels. In comparison, Little Boy, the World War II bomb dropped on the western Japanese city of Hiroshima, released 89 tera becquerels.” The Chief Japan economist at Societe General tells Bloomberg Television that Kan was one of Japan’s worst prime ministers for two reasons. The first being his handling of the crisis in March. The second? “But another bigger sin is actually more long term. Last year he lost the upper house election by a landslide … So now you have upper house controlled by the opposition party, the lower house controlled by the ruling party with this split there is no way Japan can make any structure changes.” The Democratic Party of Japan now has the task of finding Kan’s replacement. And who will take his place? CNBC reporter Sri Jegarajah reports from Tokyo. “Kan's resignation is really part of the Kabuki theater of Japanese politics in many ways … That means in turn, that has paved the way for this DPJ leadership election to take place. Now that vote will happen on Monday and what do we know about the field of candidates? It is quite wide, were talking about as many as nine prospective hopefuls here.” The world will know on Tuesday who Japan’s next Prime Minister will be. Transcript by Newsy.

Website: *******MrEnergyCzar**** This is Peak Oil News. I'm your host, MrEnergyCzar. We're covering Peak Oil, Renewable Energy, Electric Cars and everything in-between. Facebook: *******www.facebook****/MrEnergyCzar.PeakOil Twitter: ********Twitter****/MrEnergyCzar Volkswagen has been in the news lately. They've announced the production of several new plug-in hybrids. They will produce a plug-in hybrid Golf in 2014. It is said to have an electric range close to the Volt's 38 miles. We'll know more later but my guess is it will have more of a 25 - 30 mile EPA rated electric range. They will also be producing the XL1 plug-in diesel hybrid. It is a 261 mpg plug-in two-seater with a 31 all electric mile range. It looks eerily similar to GM's EV-1 from the 1990's. This may be due to having a low aerodynamic drag of just .19. The car is said to be able to cruise at 62 mile per hour while using a fuel sipping 8.3 horsepower. The car will have a two cylinder diesel engine paired with an electric motor. In Lima Peru, water sources are polluted and it hardly rains. They made a billboard that sucks water out of the air and provides clean drinking water for families below. Engineers created a system that gathers the water through reverse osmosis. It is then purified and stored in tanks for the residents to use. This system takes advantage of Lima Peru's high humidity levels in the air. Japan plans the world's largest offshore wind farm near Fukushima. Since the Fukushima incident, 52 nuclear reactors have remained closed in Japan. They plan to install 143 offshore wind turbines, close to Fukushima, so the existing abandoned grid connections can be utilized. I don't expect there to be any opposition to offshore wind like there is here in the states. The United States lags the world in terms of offshore wind because we have none. China has admitted the existence of cancer villages. China allows industries to dump toxic chemicals into the environment, in the name of growth. Hundreds of villages in China are seeing unusually high cancer rates. China still uses many chemicals that are banned in most developed nations. Will the Chinese people reach a breaking point and start demanding that their government protect the air and water?

Website: *******MrEnergyCzar**** This is Peak Oil News. I'm your host, MrEnergyCzar. We're covering Peak Oil, Renewable Energy, Electric Cars and everything in-between. Facebook: *******www.facebook****/MrEnergyCzar.PeakOil Twitter: ********Twitter****/MrEnergyCzar Tesla announces a new true cost $500 a month lease for it's model S. It can cost as low as $500 a month if you account for what you would have paid for in gas, take all the tax credits and other factors. Tesla's owner, Elon Musk, is guaranteeing the Tesla's resale value at the end of the lease. The model S will be worth no less than the three year residual value of the Mercedes S class premium sedan. Also, if Tesla goes bankrupt, Elon will use his own personal fortune to buy back your Tesla, if you want to, at the end of the lease. Tesla's model S production is now more than 500 per week. Despite the higher cost, the Tesla sales have caught up to the Chevy Volt and the cheaper Nissan Leaf. The theory that people won't pay more to drive oil free may not be true after all. It's been over a year since the politicized Chevy Volt battery fire hype. With over 30,000 Chevy Volts on the road you'd think at least one of the batteries would have caught fire by now. Sadly, there was a deadly accident where three people in the other car died while the driver in the Chevy Volt survived. Of course the battery didn't catch fire. I'm willing to bet the first fire in a Volt will originate in the gas tank and not the battery. An Exxon Canadian tar sands pipeline ruptured in Arkansas. It spilled tens of thousands of gallons of toxic, hard to clean up, tar sands oil. Beside getting into the water, it flowed right through a suburban neighborhood. Supposedly, camera's or wildlife volunteers were not allowed anywhere near the spill area. Not to be outdone, a Canadian tar sands oil train derailed in Minnesota. It also spilled tens of thousands of gallons of oil. More of these spill events are likely to occur as our pipeline infrastructure ages across the country. People also might be surprised to find that going through their town tar sand oil is being transported by rail. Fish near the Fukushima disaster area are showing 2,500 times the legal radiation limit. This is two years after the disaster. Radiation levels in the fish appear to be increasing which may indicate that the plant is still leaking radiation in the ocean. The power plant company, TEPCO, is planning to install a 12 mile long fishing net to help trap the contaminated fish from migrating. The contaminated small feeder fish may be eaten by larger fish and contaminating the food chain.

Pépère le nucléaire vous explique avec un humour caustique comment faire de l'argent avec le #nucléaire à #Fukushima quitte à sacrifier quelques liquidateurs. Le clip, film d'animation comique en papier découpé, pratique le détournement d'images (tableaux, manga...) et de scènes de films et fait aussi allusion à la vie politique française (nuage de #Tchernobyl qui s'arrête à la frontière etc.). Les paroles de Pépère, le nucléaire ! comportent de nombreuses allusions à la gestion de la centrale de Fukushima par TEPCO (Tokyo Electric Power Company) ainsi qu'à la vie politique française au moment de la catastrophe de Tchernobyl et plus généralement dans les années 1980 et au début des années 1990. Outre une brève citation du Président de TEPCO qui sert d'introduction à la chanson, Pépère, le nucléaire ! rappelle que, lorsque s'est produit l'accident, la centrale de Fukushima n'était plus assurée par TEPCO depuis 7 mois (source AFP). Dans le même couplet suit une allusion à l'affaire du sang contaminé par le virus du SIDA et au fameux « Responsable mais pas coupable » de Georgina Dufoix et Laurent Fabius en 1991. Pépère, le nucléaire ! n'oublie pas, bien sûr, qu'en 1986, le nuage de Tchernobyl s'est arrêté à la frontière française et inclut un sample des paroles rassurantes du Professeur Pellerin : LE JOURNALISTE : Est-ce qu'on a constaté quelque chose au-dessus de la France ? Le PROFESSEUR PELLERIN : Non car... les vents ne vont pas dans cette direction-là, les vents tournent dans le sens inverse des aiguilles d'une montre, il n'y a pas lieu du tout de s'inquiéter, c'est sans... aucun... danger... pour la santé publique. La chanson dénonce encore le fait que TEPCO a recruté des personnes endettées, en situation de fragilité et des SDF pour aller nettoyer les parties les plus dangereusement contaminées de la centrale et de ses environs. Enfin, elle pose la question de la pertinence du nucléaire : « Et si ça pète ? ».

BY CHRISTINE SLUSSER ANCHOR SALEM SOLOMAN You're watching multisource world news analysis from Newsy “A new day and a nightmare for quake victims in Japan.” (Video Source: CNN) “...has some Japanese calling this Japan’s Chernobyl.” (Video Source: CBS) JOHN LARGE: “...and we know about 170,000 people have now been evacuated, so clearly they are preparing for the worst case.” (Video Source: ITN) From earthquakes, to tsunamis, to nuclear meltdowns, it’s hard to imagine things getting much worse for Japan--but where there’s a media, there’s a way. One theme dominating the coverage is “can it get any worse?” Media outlets take a look at the worst case scenarios. (Video Source: RT) “There are now three power plants in Japan where there are fears about radiation.” (Video Source: Sky News) “..***uld overheat and meltdown, releasing radioactivity into the environment.” (Video Source: MSN) “Japan has declared an emergency alert at another nuclear power plant in the Northeast of the country. Radiation levels of about 700 times higher than normal have reportedly been detected.” (Video Source: RT) One YouTube user was compelled enough to warn Americans of impending radioactive doom. “The wind was blowing to the east of Japan, and the picture you’re looking at suggests where it’s gonna go. With the current... situation, wind current and so on and so forth, so I don’t know what more to say to you, I don’t have the knowledge to advise you anymore... ” Fox News interviewed nuclear power expert Joe Cirincione, who says the likelihood of America having a similar fate is very, very possible. “[A] trifecta of earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown in the U.S. remains a possibility...Diablo Canyon in California is ‘a classic case of a very large nuclear reactor in an area that's seismically active...’” ...and the disaster anxiety has indeed spread overseas. A writer for Canada Free Press imagines a monster volcano exploding in the U.S. “If the Yellowstone Park caldera, the largest potential volcano in the U.S. should explode, it would have a comparable affect and there isn’t a damn thing that can be done about it.” Keep up with the latest on the Japanese disaster by downloading the latest Newsy iphone app. You can now stream our videos through your Apple TV – it’s free from the iTunes Store.
