I just can't believe this thing is still happening... Sickening...

If it's to be,
it's up to me.


This one time, at band camp, um, what ever happened to that flute...

Is this really their only solution in dealing with the contaminated water - storage tanks galore on an earthquake and tsumani prone island? blink.gif

Quote:China continues to ban all imports of sake from Fukushima and nine other Japanese regions, citing continuing radiation fears.

It appears while Japanese peoples, China and neighbouring countries have contamination fears about Japanese sake, the U.S. and european sales have risen.

Do the japanese people know something we don't?

Sake facts:

There are at least 80 different types of sake rice in Japan
The rice has its outer layer or bran removed before brewing
The rice is then soaked and steamed before a mould or fungus is added to start the fermentation
Water and yeast is then added, with the sake being produced two or three weeks later
Undiluted, sake typically contains between 18% and 20% alcohol
In Japan it is often served gently warmed in a small porcelain bottle called a tokkuri, then poured into small porcelain cups called sakazuki

Quote:An inexpensive and highly durable new material, it is hoped that Catenaccio PA will prove effective for treating contaminated water at the Fukushima Daiichi plant.

Quote:Catenaccio PA, however, is an inorganic polymer-based adsorbent made from silica and aluminum

http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/201...084535.htm

Quote:Since this adsorbent has only been developed recently, although its basic functions have been confirmed in the laboratory, full performance assessments against a variety of real-life effluents have not yet been undertaken. It is planned to deliver samples of the adsorbents for assessment by a third party beginning in January 2015.

Really? I certainly hope this works.

I am somewhat concerned why I can't find any information on Fukshima...it's so quiet.

I'm going to Haida Gwaii in May, taking my kayaks, I'll be paddling as much as I can and find out for myself just how true these stories are, dead tidal pools etc. I hope to come back with good news.

I saw a short documentary about Haida Gwaii and to me it felt to be such a spiritual place. I would be very interested in your report, Shadow, because the authorities are saying there is no radiation contamination there. BTW, so jealous.
