July 2 to July 16, 2016
Listed in Counts per Minute, a Count is one Radioactive Decay Registered by the Instrument. The Top Reporting Radioactive Cities are listed. The highest radiation reporting city is listed first, the least radioactive city reporting is listed last.
Still, all reporting cities are above normal. These are a portion of the American cities that exceeded 1,000 CPM these past 2 weeks.
Normal Radiation is 5 to 20 CPM

Count – 31 Cities Reporting Radiation Above 1,000 CPM
Normal Radiation is 5 to 20 CPM 
The Combined Beta and Gamma Radiation numbers publication dates are changed to publication twice a month.The next publication date for the reporting cities’ Radiation Numbers is July 30, 2016.
The YRTW Table of poisoned American cities has changed by adding a Column on the Right hand side. It is labeled“Corrupted?” The purpose of the column is to provide guidance as to the reliability, consistency and truthfulness of an individual city’s High Rad reading for these last 2 weeks.
Since a city’s report is subject to many strongly felt opinions that can affect Rad Readings, whether or not the Rad Unit was reporting at least 168 Hours (24 X 7) takes on additional importance. The number of hours the machines work in a week is not an opinion.
It is a documented fact; it is a number, a measure of efficiency. The unit either reported publicly; or it failed to do so 100% of the time. It can’t do both.
All things being equal there should be One Reading per Hour for 168 Rad readings a week. The corruption may originate with a machine error, programming glitch, human intervention or change, intended or not. Not reporting is an error; and quite possibly a crime.
The response may be “Yes” for “Yes, it is corrupted.” The entry will be “Left Blank” for “Not Suspected.” The most common departure from normal radiation reporting is reporting less than 168 times a week.
New Category – MIA 1YrHigh
“MIA 1YrHigh” is a new category under the column labeled Type of Rad. It means “Missing in Action – 1 Year High.”
Have a wonderful radioactive weekend and remember to Dodge the Rads, it’s dangerous out there.

One way to measure radiation which the United States Environmental Protection Agency [EPA] has chosen to use on its radiation websites is in Counts Per Minute. Each Count is One Radioactive Decay.”
