Fukushima 3rd Anniversary/Lessons Unlearned?

Updated Fukushima Civilian panel report highlights largely unaddressed "Human Factors" as important as earthquake and tsunami in 2011 Reactor Disaster

(CHICAGO AND TOKYO) - Fukushima reactor disaster An extensively updated and expanded version of the Independent Investigation Commission on the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Accident report published in English by the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists (BAS) has been released.

It cautions that Japan has not yet fully learned the lessons of the Fukushima reactor disaster, particularly the several ways in which the “human factor” played a major role paving the way for the crisis and worsening its aftermath.

Why the Obama Administration Will Not Admit that Fukushima Radiation is Poisoning Americans

Why isn’t GE being held accountable?

(TORONTO) - Fukushima nuclear facility We all know that the radiation from the stricken Fukushima plant has spread around the globe and is poisoning people worldwide. We all know that the West Coast of the United States is being polluted with radioactive debris and that the oceans, the beaches that border them, and even the air is becoming more polluted by radioactivity as time goes on.

You have to ask yourself why the government won’t admit this. It’s not like a disaster half a world away is their fault, is it?

Reactor Reax: Roundup of Nuclear Articles and Reports

The latest news from Physicians for Social Responsibility.

(WASHINGTON, DC) - Nuclear sign In this week's version of Reactor Reax, Nuclear power is set to disappoint, again, Reuters reports; The industry's hoped-for 'nuclear renaissance' has been thwarted by three developments: cheap natural gas from the shale revolution; regulatory delays due to environmental activism; and the disaster at Fukushima.

A Japan Times editorial, "Japan's nuclear waste problem," states: Japan's nuclear power generation has often been likened to a "condominium without a toilet" due to the lack of a final disposal site for radioactive waste that piles up as more fuel is used for power generation at nuclear plants.

Source of Galapagos Eruptions is Not Where Models Place It

University of Oregon study finds plume to the southeast, explaining active volcanic activity in the islands.

(EUGENE) - Doug Toomey Images gathered by University of Oregon scientists using seismic waves penetrating to a depth of 300 kilometers (almost 200 miles) report the discovery of an anomaly that likely is the volcanic mantle plume of the Galapagos Islands. It's not where geologists and computer modeling had assumed.

The team's experiments put the suspected plume at a depth of 250 kilometers (155 miles) and about 150 kilometers (about 100 miles) southeast of Fernandina Island, the westernmost island of the chain, and where generations of geologists and computer-generated mantle convection models have placed the plume.

Gundersen: Very Visible Steam at Fukushima Unit 3 is from Constant Radioactive Releases

Steam is coming from hot rubble, it is not related to a new explosion.

(FUKUSHIMA) - Fukushima nuclear plant Fairewinds Energy Education, Jan. 1, 2014: [...] the Internet has been flooded with conjecture claiming that Fukushima Daiichi Unit 3 is ready to explode. Fairewinds Energy Education has been inundated with questions about the very visible steam emanating from Fukushima Daiichi Unit 3. [...]

Hot water vapor has been released daily by each of the four Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plants since the accident. We believe that is one of the reasons TEPCO placed covers over Daiichi 4 and 1. [...] radioactive rubble (fission products) was left in each unit [...]

Magnitude 5.4 Quake Jolts Eastern Japan

The quake registered lower 5 on the Japanese seismic scale of 7 in the prefecture's Takahagi City, about 150 km north of Tokyo.

(TOKYO KUNA) - Earthquake A strong earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 5.4 on the Richter scale struck eastern Japan on Tuesday, the Japan Meteorological Agency said. However, there were no immediate reports of casualties and damage and no tsunami warning was issued for the 10:03 a.m. (0103 GMT) quake.

Focus of the tremor was 10 km underground in northern part of Ibaraki Prefecture, according to the agency.

PRESS TV: US Sailors Sue Japan`s TEPCO Over Radiation Sickness

They say TEPCO failed to notify first responders of the serious radiation levels from the Fukushima Daiichi energy plant

(SAN DIEGO) - An aerial file photo of the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan. Several dozen US Navy sailors and Marines who conducted aid and rescue operations in earthquake and tsunami ravaged Japan, carried out their international aid duties during a nuclear meltdown. The affected Naval personnel have filed a lawsuit against Tokyo Electric Power Company, (TEPCO) for serious health problems; half of those suing TEPCO have cancer.

The attorneys representing the sailors and Marines say many have developed brain tumors, uterine bleeding, thyroid cancer, Leukemia, digestive disorders and other health conditions typically caused by exposure to radiation. They were aboard the aircraft carrier, U.S.S. Ronald Reagan, and half a dozen other Naval ships in the fleet.

Be Indian BUT Not in INDIA

The sons of police officers believe they have a license to rape and kill. Talent cannot take you far amid such bad governance.

(NEW DELHI) - Flag of India This is worth a read. Who ever put this together (is no fool and has the right vision about India) makes sense and is an eye opener.

I remember Brits in our own country India, Indians use to say YES SIR joining their hands and bowing to them. What for? Because of the white skin? No wonder Brit's ruled the world and took us as fools? India would have been Britain if our ancestors were smart enough.

Scientists Calculate Friction of Japan`s 9.0 Earthquake in 2011

Scientists hope to repeat the experiment with other earthquakes, although the logistics of such a study are daunting – requiring a large earthquake with lots of slip...

(CORVALLIS, OR) - Japan 9.0 earthquake An international team of scientists that installed a borehole temperature observatory following the 2011 Tohoku-Oki earthquake in Japan has been able to measure the “frictional heat” generated during the rupture of the fault – an amount the researchers say was smaller than expected, which means the fault is more slippery than previously thought.

It is the first time scientists have been able to use precise temperature measurements to calculate the friction dynamics of fault slip.
