    @randomenigma I have no interest in facebook. If someone takes a picture of me and tags my name, I have no control of it and my privacy. That is why I complain!

    UNIQLO sizes might not fit common european body size? But it fits me and I'm quite happy to be able go to a UNIQLO shop to buy clothes to my size and not oversized or too long as is usually the case. At 175 cm I don't think I'm exceptionaly small... If they adapt up the sizes, please don't discard the actual sizes! Last time I went at London's UNIQLO there were plenty of buyers... But they probably won't sell as much in Europe if they don't add some bigger sizes...

    Your calculations may be economicaly defendable, I don't know. Cheaper is not necessarilly better. As for solar or wind power not being viable, sure not for now or without adapting our lifestyle. Isn't it worth a try? How viable was nuclear at it's beginning?

    Sure, these unanswered problems too and they are big ones. I'm not denying CO2 problems or saying it's the solution. But nuclear contaminated ground/sea cannot be the trade in for land retaken by the sea.

    Death count is not all that counts when assessing danger. But sure, coal and gas do their part.

    If Jpaan decides to build new units, the operational costs are nominal and over a 40-year time period, and have proven to be cost effective.

    Seriously? You mean what's happening in Fukushima is "cost effective"? And what about that cost effectiveness after this 40 year period? Because that is when in becomes interesting regarding costs...

    nuclear power would look even more attractive

    Nuclear power will NEVER look attractive. For money hungry politicians maybe, but not for common people who have to cope with the consequences of the problem.

    Agreed, coal and gas is not clean or sustainable, neither is nuclear... There's no miracle solution we can apply now, but that's no reason to justify cheapest solution. People are only ready to trade for same or better value, but face it, it can't be done. Maybe we have to put on hold that growth myth... why always more? Is enough not enough? Idealistic, I know... As for nuclear being far better for the environment... well I'm not really convinced. The next decades will reveal a lot of unanswered problems with decomissioning and waste disposal. And by the way, bury or store waste is not really a fantastic solution. The waste will just pile up and then? Just go for it and hope for a future solution is never good problem managing. Depressing.

    Abe sends special envoy to Seoul to work to improve ties with South Korea and at the same time he is back-tracking from a 1995 apology for suffering caused in Asia during WWII... does he really understand what he's doing? If he wants to make a "forward-looking statement appropriate for the 21st century" it's fine, but no need to try erase history...

    Abe wants to build new reactors trying to convince people it's a new technology therefore safe reactors... but when you read that basic fireproofing is not yet garanteed in some NPP you really wonder how safe "new technology" will be build...

    the use of combustible electrical cables and equipment and machines sited too close together, potentially allowing a fire to spread even though the equipment is indispensable for maintaining safety

    Seriously, how scary is that? How can you overview such apparently basic security standards? At least the NRA seems to do its job, but how will Abe and the LDP react to these findings? I really hope japanese people wake up and think about who they voted in...

    Even if I didn't support all of Noda's thinking, there was some hope left, somehow. Not anymore. At least a lot of things are clearer now. Japan is on the wrong path for good. It's people will suffer even more and for nothing but the well being of the politicians and their amakudari friends. Sad day for Japan. I really wonder how the LDP voters will react in the next months... desperate and disillusioned.

    @MADCOWS I wasn't talking about brand name of the car, just about the engine unit. Actual Lotus has (tweaked) Toyota motors since they droped the K-serie Rover motor in 2004. I don't want Lotus cars to be branded Honda. I just thought it would make access possible to use Honda engines which are good IMO. It could also revive some old F1 collaboration memories...

    This is so desperate... will japanese people react to this? How can a government be so utterly inept to help it's own people? This is so frustrating... I guess Matsumura sums it up...

    This is a manifestation of government indifference to rehabilitation. They are very good at making excuses, Matsumura told

    Can someone explain me how this radiation check works? I'm surprised it takes only 10 seconds for a bag of rice... Is it really possible to measure the Cs level in such a short time? Is there a sample taken? If it's so easy, quick and gives real results what's the problem with testing all the food (apart from the time it'd take)?

    I'm with you zichi. Restrictions could have been eventually eased after proof of safety based on real facts/studies. I feel this would have been a better way to keep some trust in dealing with this mess. But this would have hurt feelings too much so let's pretend everything is ok and everybody is nice. If not, then appologize and all is fine... How can you build trust with those kind of happenings? Too much people avoiding to face facts and taking responsibilities. Deceiving. Again and again.

    I've seen those kind of robot-lawn-mower since a few years around my place. They have a small station they go back and dock for electric power wich is solar. It makes absolutely no noise and the grass is cut clean through the season! Looks like a gadget but actually quite efficient. You delimit the surface with a kind of wire (don't see it, ground level) it won't cross. It's quite cool, don't have to worry about lawn-mower noise right under the office/meeting windows!
