Jeff Macke is Back Interviews Jim Rogers Concerning Japan Disasters

Mr. Rogers is short term bullish the Yen (due to potential repatriations of capital back to Japan for reconstruction activities) and even bullish the US dollar which he expects to rise perhaps 20 percent. He is keeping a tight leash on his dollar long trade and will call it quits if it declines 3-4 percent from here. Eventually though, Rogers anticipates the demise of the dollar after it reaches some "tipping point". As usual, Mr. Rogers is bullish on commodities, being the most enthusiastic about agriculture but is waiting patiently as he likes to buy things at a discount. He emphasizes in the interview specifically that he is not long any energy (such as crude oil) and what sells off first may dictate what commodities he gets in to first. Rogers is also bullish on gold and silver but would prefer to buy silver opposed to gold because he sees it as being much further away from all time highs than gold which is near all time highs (e.g. at more of a discount).

Radiation Level Comparison with Fukashima Daichi Nuclear Disaster

Multiply the mSv/hr (milli-Sieverts/hour) values in the graphic by 1000 to get ╬╝Sv/hr, which is the scale used on most of the Live Streaming Radiation Meters page of my site.

Japan Earthquake Causes Fukashima Nuclear Reactor Explosion: Potassium Iodide Recommended by Some

Disclaimer:  I am not a health professional and make no recommendations concerning any kinds of medication or nutritional supplements.  In this article I am merely stating how other people are making or have made preparations regarding radioactive fallout.  Please consult a pharmacist or other health professional before taking any kind of medication or supplements.

So far reactors #1 and #3 of the six reactor Fukashima nuclear power plant in Japan have blown up. Reactor #2 has cooling system failure.  There are six reactors in the Fukashima nuclear power plant complex.

According to radio show host Alex Jones, Potassium Iodide is currently being handed out to the people near the blown reactors in Japan as a protective measure from radioactive fallout.  Alex is himself taking an iodine supplement (he did not endorse any particular brand but the label of the bottle on his desk shows it came from Whole Food Markets) to protect his thyroid against any fallout that might make its way over to the United States via the jet stream.  Western states such as California, Utah, Oregon, Colorado are in the path of the jet stream.  Alex Jones lives in Texas.
