And Tokyo still keeps getting its 'Best palce to eat' accolades. Hilarious. Keep eating 5 star!

A giant has died today. A human who overcame so much personal tragedy to give all that he was to a cause, a nation, all of us. I took the day off from classes to watch him walk free and it seems that for a while we all walked with him. Sad, but happy for what he achieved, if only we could all reach as far.
An absolute inspiration. Rest easy Mr. Mandela. x

Kudos to the politicians who got stuck in. Do all that you can to stop this proposed draconian disaster in the making.

I enjoy standing up at my time to leave and saying in a voice to be heard, 'Osaki ni shitsurei shimasu!' and leaving. I do my job well, efficiently and ahead of the curve... then again. I am the boss. No staff stay beyond their contracted hours.

The whole industry needs to install this ASAP. Just as all new cars should have an alcohol test before you drive so should phones have a walk prevention app. Although life will be a little bit more boring, having idiots bounce off me as they walk into The Wall, I'll miss it. Them me, too. Literally.

Beef, so 20th Century. As Oz becomes even further water stressed they are going to have to stope being a net exporter of water though its beef industry.

And THAT is why we've drank, cooked and rinsed in imported bottled water. Obvious that IT was getting around, being spread about. From re-suspension to leaching to dumping of collected leaves, soils and the classic burning of gareki. Sharing the wealth. How...
This doesn't even touch the issue of where Tokyo sources its water from. Dear me. Drip, drip, drip... the contamination concentrates within us.

Did they check the source of the products? I mean, come on. Trust the food business in Japan to cover up truths.

If you have a bully you warn them, you react, or are made to suffer. China is pushing along so many lines it is quite something to observe in its entirety and at the moment it is Japan who has the military and economic might to push back. Japan must not yield but neither must Japan provoke, because for one Japan needs to set a marker for other South East Asian nations to follow and secondly Japan needs to be acutely aware of how the region observes the actions of a once Imperialist Power that brought so much misery. The forces of peace in China must prevail and as the article outlines the hardliners must not be allowed to gain the controls. It will bring calamity, war, waste in a place that needs a brighter future.

@Jinjapan: Japan has a multi faceted array of natural resources, a multitude, even now a carbon based one in the form of methane hydrate. Keep up with developments. This isn't 1941. Wind. Hydro. Geo-thermal. R and D. A world class transport system. A manufacturing base that is envied by developed nations and the list goes on. It is good that the Rice Class is being pulled down, they act as though they are Shogunate over-lords holding everyone to ransom on the MYTH of Japanese rice. It IS the 21st Century.

“Safety is our top priority. We have to avoid any possibility of the worst-case scenario.”
Well, flights to Okinawa will be affected too. Japan needs to think of what to do because no-one can be ditacted to by the stick. No one.

Hmm, I think the Governor and his constituents may well have a word or five to say about that.

@TheResident. No, perimeters will do because two dimensional is about as far as you'll get because if you don't understand the reasons for people's fears then you don't understand the problem. QED.

@TheResident. You really should consider a career in the paranormal. Reading minds and determining their perimeters is something worth sharing. If the situation at Dai-Ichi Number 4 doesn't scare you, you don't understand.

Steam effort? Maybe it will leave a pile? No, what was meant to be written was...** 'a' **team effort.
YongYangNov. 17, 2013 - 05:06PM JST
This really should be steam effort, Russia, with its experience, the US, France, the UK and Japan. TEPCO should NOT be doing this on its own. NFW.
