Absolutely, they'll be the best source of info.

Also published yesterday:


"Tepco official Teruaki Kobayashi said the survey found no major obstacles around an opening leading to the underground part of the vessel, which is good news for future surveys needed to extricate the molten nuclear fuel."

Quote:A Japanese court has blocked the restarting of two nuclear reactors in the western city of Takahama, after local people raised safety concerns.


I am surprised the court listened to the people at all, but the electric company is going to appeal this decision.

Quote:Samples of bottled tap water taken from the afflicted area reportedly received a “Gold Quality award” from Belgian consumer quality testing company Monde Selection.

Run by the commercial International Institute for Quality Selections, Monde Selection awards are requested from a panel of judges, who conduct tests and analyses on products ranging from cosmetics and beer to diet and health products, awarding bronze, silver, gold and “grand gold” medals accordingly.


This is very strange thing. I wonder if the company was bought off, or if it is true?

Second robot captures glow inside stricken Fukushima plant.

Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) deployed the second remote-controlled robot last week after the first one broke down.

The Odd part about this event is 3 months prior to the event!
Japan started the conversational request for the de~man~ing and hand over of all US military controlled Bases and property.
And there is literally little to nothing about this any where on the internet!

The Japan Self-Defense Forces (自衛隊 Jieitai?), or JSDF, occasionally referred to as JSF or SDF, are the unified military forces of Japan that were established after the end of the post–World War II. In recent years they have been engaged in international peacekeeping operations.[6] Recent tensions, particularly with North Korea,[7] have reignited the debate over the status of the JSDF and its relation to Japanese society.[8] New military guidelines, announced in December 2010, will direct the Jieitai away from its Cold War focus on the Soviet Union to a focus on China, especially regarding the dispute over the Senkaku Islands.[9]

They list the date here it was in December 2010!
It really makes one wonder about our real level of technology.
Tesla's electro-mechanical oscillator is a steam-powered electric generator patented by Nikola Tesla in 1893.[1][2] Later in life Tesla claimed one version of the oscillator caused an earthquake in New York City in 1898, gaining it the popular culture title "Tesla's earthquake machine".

Fukushima Radiation Found In Tap Water Around Japan

Testing conducted in February and March of 2015 found cesium in many tap water samples collected around Japan. While the numbers were fairly low it is still a persistent problem since tap water is used in some way in everything that is consumed. In the readings, Tokyo had higher tap water contamination levels than Fukushima City.

One reading that may cause confusion is the reading for Ichihara Chiba. It indicated iodine 131 was found in that tap water sample. That contamination would not be from Fukushima Daiichi. The reading is isolated, no other cities found iodine 131 in their water. If it had somehow been from Fukushima Daiichi, readings would have been found in areas closer to the plant. Iodine 131 has a short half life, any contamination decays away over a few weeks. This same problem was encountered in the US soon after the disaster were iodine 131 was being found in some east coast municipal water supplies. At the time it was unlikely to be directly due to fallout from Fukushima Daiichi as too much time had passed. What may be happening is linked to medical treatments.

It's about time they came up with a way to actually determine which life still exists in the oceans, especially during this continuing radioactive disaster. However, it does not count population numbers, nor population decline (if it exists).

Nuclear official warns of explosions at Fukushima plant

Gases accumulating in sediment underneath highly contaminated water — Spark caused by static electricity could ignite hydrogen blast

Inspections of containers holding contaminated water at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant found that at least 10 percent have leaks, which could trigger a hydrogen explosion.

Tokyo Electric Power Co., the plant’s operator, reported its findings at a meeting with a study group from the Nuclear Regulation Authority on May 22. It said no radioactive water was found to have escaped outside the concrete structures that encase the containers.

According to TEPCO, there were about 1,300 such containers at the plant as of May 20.

They store waste water from the ALPS (advanced liquid processing system) equipment that removes radioactive substances from contaminated water.

The containers, which are made of polyethylene, are 1.8 meters high and have diameters of 1.5 meters.

The first leak was discovered in a lid on April 2.

I am just playing devil's advocate here because it seems life depends on a certain level of background radiation for our immune systems to work properly. Very interesting article for those who are interested in the opposite point of view.

Quote:Why, then, does the no-safe-level, zero-threshold "theory" continue to be widely accepted? Dr. Boyer makes a bold statement as to the reason, "Why, in the face of the evidence, does the zero-threshold concept remain so politically correct? More to the point, consider who benefits. Are there people who make their living exploiting the zero-threshold theory? You bet! Think of the government employees at the federal, state, and local levels who use zero threshold to concoct regulations for nuclear power plants, nuclear waste disposal, radon in homes, etc. Think of the government-sponsored researchers on disposal of nuclear waste, who search for ever more esoteric ways to protect people 50,000 years hence from a conceivable, trivial addition to the natural radiation background. One might call it 'bureaucratic free enterprise.'”

Strong words, indeed. Add to this those in the public, political and environmental activist arenas whose reputations depend on their exaggerated prophecies of nuclear doom, and we can see that the business of keeping the no-safe-level myth alive is considerable. Without the public becoming aware of the truth and demanding the use of scientific correctness, this unethical practice will continue and fear of the low-level-radiation "bogey man" will endure. Once the public becomes aware of the safety concerning low level radiation exposures and makes their collective voice heard, the no-safe-level myth can be discarded and become little more than an historical point of interest similar to the false belief that the Earth is the center of the universe.

It should be noted that current research on single living cell DNA and multi-cellular laboratory animals demonstrates the biological mechanisms at work. Low level radiation exposure actually improves an individual cell’s ability to repair damage to its DNA, much the same as physical exercise improves muscle tone. It also has a cumulative effect of improved DNA repair for the remaining lifetime of the cell. In other words, radiation exposure has a positive cumulative effect in non-lethel doses, but there is no negative cumulative effect! In addition, irradiated cells tend to live longer than non-irradiated cells. These phenomena have also been found to be the case with multi-cellular laboratory animals. By increasing radiation exposure above normal background levels, living creatures experience better cellular repair functions and have longer lifetimes. There are accumulated health effects due to increased exposure levels, but all of the effects are positive, health enhancing, and life-extending.


"Robert E. Boyer (USA) : "There are no data that support a linear inference of harm from nuclear radiation down to zero effect at zero dose. The data indicate that people would live longer and healthier lives if they received a little more radiation, not less."" dunno.gif

1. Radiation occurs everywhere as a natural part of the world...everyone and everything is naturally radioactive.
2. The no-safe-level theory of radiation only applies to enormous exposures (above 100 REM) absorbed over a short period of time.
3. Low levels of radiation exposure over long periods of time, up to 500 times typical natural background levels, are not harmful.
4. Low level radiation is beneficial to human health, improves damage recovery, and is essential to the functioning of the immune system.
5. Way too much or way too little of a good thing can be deadly.
