A dirty bomb is simply a conventional explosive device laden with radioactive material, supposedly designed to mimic the effects of fallout from an actual nuclear weapon. The Twitter message went on line a little more than a week ago, and was posted by a British citizen , Hamayun Tariq, who hails from Dudley, a town of about 80,000 in Englands West Midlands region. The 37-year old Tariq fled to Syria where he now trains ISIS fighters under the pseudonym Muslim-al-Britani. O by the way, Islamic State does have a dirty bomb. We found some radioactive material from Mosul University, Tariq wrote on the now-deleted Twitter feed. Well find out what dirty bombs are and what they do.

Marcy Westerling, center, says her goodbyes to Lorrie Goldin, right, before pilot Tom McGrath, left, a volunteer for Angel Flight flies Westerling home at Gnoss Field in Novato. (Robert Tong Marin Independent Journal) “I’m stage 4B and there is no 4C,” Westerling said. Nevertheless, after seven lines of treatment, she continues to battle the disease, not really expecting to beat cancer, but hoping to gain a few more precious days of life. She is fond of saying that she is “livingly dying.” Travel for treatment On Monday, Westerling flew from Portland, where she lives now, to Oakland International Airport. She then took a shuttle bus to San Rafael, where Alan and Charlene Lundgren-Frischer of Mill Valley picked her up and drove her to the home of Sylvia and Bill Wallace in Mill Valley. Westerling stays at the Wallaces’ home when she comes to Marin for her treatments at Marin Specialty Care in Greenbrae. The Frischers and several other Marin residents give her rides to her medical appointments and the airport when it is time to fly home.
