    An interesting thing to mention about Bali is that sometimes when spiritual protocol lapses strange things happen here... Balinese businesses always pray, or bless their journeys... Just an interesting observation because some overseas businesses may not prioritize that in the same way? Maybe this one did too, hopefully it did... and that may be evident in the rescue..., Just saying it's another perspective, as this place is extremely spiritual and works that way in everyday life. In comparison to other places in the world, we must acknowledge it...

    ...and OBVIOUSLY the prayers of everyone have been heard for survival of those strong, beautiful ladies... so let's keep praying for the other two...

    A lot of the afflicted in Japan seem to be children. Is this really the case in other lands?

    Yes. Norovirus affects people with weaker immune systems - children, the elderly and the ill.

    Most of us have contracted it at some time. We all have it in our bodies. If you are a healthy adult, in most cases you can fight it off.

    I don't care if it is Japan or the US, or any country,

    We are just meant to be better than this.

    110 people made claims to the authorities in my prefecture complaining of illness related to these items. They found no traces of pesticide in the food. Sounds like a lot of people looking for some compensation.

    Makes it more difficult for the investigators to find the real scale of the contamination.

    Oh no!

    Why didn't those fools heed our warnings. Don't they read the JT comments?

    Studies show that 80% of news sites don't check any data in articles that say 'studies show.'

    Most sites just cut and paste stuff from other news outlets.

    I am the last one to defend the LDP, but this has been case of awful, biased reporting.

    If you take his nazi comments in the context of the rest of the speech, he is saying that the constitution should not be changed covertly. The statement on its own can be read either way. Journalists need to get their facts straight.

    He also says that politicians should not make song and dance about visiting Yasukuni.

    I don't like the right leanings of the LDP, but I don't think they should be vilified for things they didn't really say.

    It was included as a cultural site because it was rejected as a natural due to environmental damage.

    I hope this listing will encourage a major cleanup of the mountain and its surrounds.

    One of the sites, Shiraito Falls, is a beautiful spring waterfall, but it is spoilt buy a large concrete building plonked right in front of it. Again I hope they will be forced to cleanup the sites that have also been listed as part of the cultural status.

    From the USGS

    This deep section of the Pacific slab beneath the Sea of Okhotsk has hosted several large earthquakes in the past , four above M 6 within 200 km of the May 24 event since 1988. These included a M 7.7 earthquake in July 2008, 115 km to the southwest at a depth of 630 km, and a M 7.3 event in November of the same year, 95 km to the southeast at a depth of 490 km. Because of their great depths, none are known to have caused damage. Intermediate-depth (70-300 km) and deep-focus (depth > 300 km) earthquakes are distinguished from shallow earthquakes (0-70 km) by the nature of their tectonic setting, and are in general less hazardous than their shallow counterparts, though they may be felt at great distances from their epicenters.

    A 75-year-old Pakistani man was hacked to death in Birmingham on May 2nd. That never made it on to Japan today.

    Of course both attacks were heinous, but the response to the Woolwich one has been ridiculous. I've seen people screaming for lynchings, mass deportations, ethnic cleansing.

    Stupidity on a massive scale.

    They have closed several stores outside of Kanto already. It must have been pretty bad for the staff after their arduous auditions.

    Mt Fuji was rejected as a natural heritage site several years ago because it was too polluted.

    I hope this will encourage them to limit the number of climbers on the mountain, and bring in some kind of park ranger system to stop companies dumping trash all over the place.

    A lot of people believe a lot of things.

    Basing an earthquake-prediction system on historical sunspot activity is just irresponsible. The same guy predicted the Tokai quake for July 2012. It didn't happen. They drop lots of dates and just hope that one fits. Even if earthquakes are slightly influenced by eclipses or sunspots, there so many other factors that affect their production. What happens if an undersea mountain on the edge of a subduction zone delays a quake by 10, 50 or 150 years?

    Japan has one of the most complex tectonic systems in the world. It is almost impossible to predict quakes here with any accuracy, especially if you concentrate the prediction on a single factor.

    bigfujiyama - oh really? And how do you know that? Im going to place money on the fact that, as the big clever scientists at the Japanese Meteorological Agency can still >not predict huge earthquakes within a couple of minutes of them, that either can you. And the fact they can also not >rule out it all being related to each other, that either can you.

    Well you would lose your money. I have a degree in geology, specifically plate tectonics. Nobody can predict earthquakes, but with a little knowledge you can tell the difference. If you knew anything about quakes, you would know it was a deep-focus quake. Deep quakes occur on a different mechanism from shallow focus ones, although scientists don't know the exact reason it is thought that they occur when minerals in part of a subducting slab go through a change. They don't cause after shocks and they don't cause tsunamis. They are felt over a wide area because of the depth. There was a 7.0 deep quake down there on New Years day 2012. Again there were no aftershocks, but it was felt over a wide area. The Miyake-jima quakes are related to magma movement at an undersea volcano close to Miyake. That movement could lead to an eruption and the magma movement could be an after effect from the 2011 quake. However, the 6.7 quake today was completely different.

    Big quakes can happen at any time in Japan. The only thing you can do is prepare, but a little understanding of how they work goes a long way.
