@MH, as someone who lives in Japan, it has long been established through actual witnessed events that a large number of Japanese parents seemingly leave their children's safety and well-being to the unknowable and fickle fingers of a human abstract called 'fate'. As you can see, day-in day-out, it doesn't work very well in terms of securing a child's life, health and safety.

Shameless self-interested money grabbing bare-faced hypocrites. What? These thieves want MORE money from the international goodwill fund, that nearly a billion dollars, given for the earthquake? Disgusting. Shameless, Corrupt. Long may the computer just say, 'NO'. or 'PO'

As an ex-educator at a Tokyo uni / private girls high school --which I decied to leave-- I always ALWAYS put my children first and used to delight in telling management, 'No, I'll be at my child’s entrance ceremony' the hoops and jumps they introduced to try and get me to break, pathetic in their obviousness and deliberate attempts to try and control, if not illegal. I actually relished the next hurdle they'd think up! My children first and every single time, no doubt about it. Viva these teachers who decided to... wait for it... LIVE!

Yellow plate? People, PLEASE always be careful. Watch and be attentive on the roads it is usual others that kill us, not ourselves. I am so tired of these selfish holes who through totally mind-boggling stupid behavior murder people on the roads. BE SAFE.

It's agreat film becuase it's about girls and it's for girls and that's about time and the love is about the love between siblings, sisters. A first for Disney. I too thought it was bit singy, but as my daughter now has all the songs down pat, and most of the script... Well, English at home has a renewed energy! Bravo!

The punishments for causing people's death by using your car inappropriately have to be made much more severe, you KNOW that you can kill people. If you drink and drive, drug and drive, if you text and drive, if you do NOT pay due care when you drive AND because we know that cars kill people... QED.

The book Softwars is a good read, his description of Bill Gates is classic, as is the profile of his lady. Just look what real language input data base systems can buy you.

Melt THROUGHS, not downs, the containment vessels are holed, not whole, are breached, leak and are not containing the melted down rods and assemblies, AS THEY are on the concrete mats of theri respective Unit as a corium mass. Melt through. Get it? Real easy, 1+1=2. Cancers. Take. Time. Daily intake. Daily. Over days, weeks, months, years. 'It can not be attributed to us', easy to let slide out of the darkness 3 decades down the timeline. What a web of deciet, what an utter cowardly way to express a derelection of duty. Amoral. Sickening. Beyond belief.

Quasar80> Who said otherwise? But the comparision still stands as a glaring affront to reason and fact. You don't get a committed dose from flying in an aircraft anywhere close to that recieved when living in a contaminated landscape, where as already stated, you breath, eat and drink dosage. QED.

It has long been established that the 'flight exposure' analogy is essentially, in effect, a total misrepresentation of the type of radiation exposure experienced in the aftermath of a nuclear catastrophe such as that which is still ongoing in Fukushima. Living, drinking, eating, breathing in a contaminated landscape is in no way comparable to the external exposure rate experienced through flight, in NO way. Internal emitters breathed in or consumed sit within body tissue / bone and cause cancer. You'd think Japanese publication that has been reporting about the catastrophes for the last 3 years would know this basic fact about radiation by now.

Always be prepared for devastating earthquakes in Japan. Just be ready. Stay safe. Now, Genkai, Ikata and Kaminoseki... No to uranium based nuclear power in Japan.
