That is the warning from Oregon State Police. The markers are silver canisters about 18 inches long and 3 inches wide.</p><p>Last week, three of them were found along the Oregon coast.</p><p>State Hazardous Device Technicians say it is not unusual to respond to one a month, but three in a week is very unusual.</p><p>The devices are dropped by military aircraft to mark the location of something floating in the ocean. The trouble is, they contain white phosphorous, which burns in contact with air.</p> Tue, 08 Oct 2013 13:54:13 +0000 Barbara Dellenback 1067 at http://ijpr.org Considering Syria More Carefully http://ijpr.org/post/considering-syria-more-carefully <p>The news about Syria came so fast this week, news organizations struggled to keep up.&nbsp; Just as Congress returned for a likely vote on authorizing military action, Syria showed a willingness to consider putting its chemical weapons under international control, perhaps rendering an American attack moot.&nbsp; We'll get two viewpoints on Syria in this interview--from Arcadia University professor <a href="http://www.arcadia.edu/faculty/samer-abboud/" target="_blank"><strong>Samer Abboud,</strong></a> who studies politics and the economy in Syria and other countries, and from Veterans for Peace past national president <a href="https://www.commondreams.org/author/leah-bolger" target="_top"><strong>Leah Bolger.</strong></a></p><p> Wed, 11 Sep 2013 19:04:52 +0000 Geoffrey Riley & Charlotte Duren 235 at http://ijpr.org Considering Syria More Carefully
