Depleted Uranium (DU) General Awarness Training

This training film is about 15min. in lenght.

Listen very carefully to what is being said and how it's being presented.

As you do also think of what is being left out.

Pay special attention to the cleanup procedures and precautions.

This link: DU Training Film , will bring up your Real Player with the Film.

The link in the title and HERE will take you to the site page where you can DownLoad either the 'Real Player' version or 'QuickTime' version.

Another Big Thanks to Eric, over at BushFlash for a great find and posting, bringing attention to this, as he does on so many other subjects of importance!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    why the film is significant? Not everybody wants to download a film, and since you did you'll be able to explain what it reveals.

      the Film.

      My Explaining, as I'm not an Educator, nor a Scientist, etc., would do no good.

      But will say, like every Education Film, it is spoken slowly so easy to remember what is said as it proceeds, than something similar is mentioned which should bring up questions of the previous statements.

      It a poorly put together Propaganda film, in my estimate, as it is similar to the Earlier Training/Information Films made about the 'Cold War' and 'Nuclear Disaster'.

      Which has me Still Wondering what the Hell my School Desk was going to protect me from, rather have the DuckTape of today, same same!!!!

      •  The first link.. (0+ / 0-)

        Brings up the 'Stream' of the Movie.

        The Site Link gives you the Downloads at
        Real Media (4.8 MB)
        QuickTime (8.7 MB)

        Also not being a Techy, myself, you'll have to decide if it's worth it to watch, but if you're Streaming anything already, it would be similar to that and probably less of a load.

    I've read some of the articles about DU, and once googled for images of Iraqi children likely affected by DU. Heart-breaking doesn't begin to describe it...

      For it, as long as it's posted later in the day.

      And feel Free to use this film, no need to link back to the Diary.

      intranets, over at ePluribus Media, left these two links:
      More reading on DU if you already haven't:

      Depleted uranium
      From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

      Bibliography: Military Use of Depleted Uranium (DU)

      Of which I had already seen, along with much more, but others may not have, and if you haven't the information might come in handy in the report.
