In case you're still more interested in Facebook than in the Fukushima world catastrophe,read this:
Otherwise, read that here:
"This sort of mistake is not something that can be forgiven," Edano said sternly Monday.
And remember this:
"Plutonium can be shielded by a sheet of paper" : here I quote NHK news anchor.
Ok! But don't forget that once in the body, it is baaaaaaaaaaaad. Real bad.
Remember, Plutonium's half-life is 24,000 years.BAAAAAD

Every day, the world over, large amounts of high-level radioactive waste created by nuclear power plants is placed in interim storage, which is vulnerable to natural disasters, man-made disasters, and to societal changes. In Finland the world’s first permanent repository is being hewn out of solid rock – a huge system of underground tunnels - that must last 100,000 years as this is how long the waste remains hazardous.

High Levels indeed
"Extremely high radiation found in soil

Japanese authorities have detected a concentration of a radioactive substance 1,600 times higher than normal in soil at a village, 40 kilometers away from the troubled nuclear power plant in Fukushima Prefecture.

The disaster task force in Fukushima composed of the central and local governments surveyed radioactive substances in soil about 5 centimeters below the surface at 6 locations around the plant from last Friday through Tuesday.

The results announced on Wednesday show that 163,000 becquerels of radioactive cesium-137 per kilogram of soil has been detected in Iitate Village, about 40 kilometers northwest of the plant.

Gakushuin University Professor Yasuyuki Muramatsu, an expert on radiation in the environment, says that normal levels of radioactive cesium-137 in soil are around 100 becquerels at most. The professor says he was surprised at the extremely high reading, which is 1,630 times higher than normal levels."

Dennis Kucinich has always been my favourite.
I quote : "Since being elected to Congress in 1996, Kucinich has been a tireless advocate for worker rights, civil rights and human rights"

I like this comment from EmileZ(+50p)
"Dennis Kucinich is the most terse, pithy, passionate, inspiring, truthful, righteous, federal representative we've got (that I am aware of).
He is picking it up where Dr. King left off."

We're all Japanese

The phrases we use when a man-made or natural catastrophe turns all our planet's inhabitants' eyes in the same direction.
I remember September 11 in 2001. 'We're all Americans.' That's what we said at the time about the man-made catastrophy.
Now I'll remember 3 /11 in 2011."We're all japanese." That's what we can say today about this natural and man-made (we build nuclear power stations)catastrophe.
Words, dates.But one present.One Human People. We think of you Japan.

Emergency Alert System
quote: "It may seem like a scene out of George Orwell's "1984" or some other apocalyptic Hollywood blockbuster, but government officials have wanted for years to establish a way for the White House to quickly, directly alert Americans of impending danger."
