I saw the effects of a 'gokon' yesterday
Sitting down on the train floor,3 girls (adults?) singing anime songs in unison-all this at 3pm in the afternoon.
Sorta pathetic really..........

Tsunamis are generated by earthquakes thus it would be reasonable to assume the cause of the disaster was largely due to an earthquake.The direct damage to the generators due to water damage inhibited the cooling system with resulting meltdowns and explosions.
In the case of earthquake generated earth movement who is able to predict the exact cause of a meltdown in the future?
A failing system or human error could easily have the same consequences
As there is absolutely no way that the duration,location nor intensity of an earthquake can be predicted then it is surely nonsensical to have nuclear reactors in Japan.

How can a nuclear reactor meet 'safety requirements' in a country prone to massive earthquakes?
The (according to NHK) the damaged reactors have spewed out over a quadrillion becquerels of radiation!
There is still no way to stop this flow,to date Japan has had the worst nuclear disaster in history.
And it is still ongoing......

Not only uv radiation but also alpha,beta and gamma radiation levels are much higher!
If there were a Geiger counter on all flights showing the much increased radiation levels, then many people would reduce flying!

I would disagree.
There aren't any laws in Japan that deal with race issues.
The football clubs are possibly responding to FIFA fines but not to any fines based on Japan's legal statutes.
And this is why foreigners have been excluded and prevented from entering certain businesses based on race
There is much more legal redress to be found in Europe concerning racial issues.

It's no surprise that there is a middleman (Orix) in the mix-Japan is notorious for this.
However,solar power generation is not only the province of big players.
I personally know 3 people to have signed contracts with Kansai Electric to sell power on 25 year contracts.
9-10% a year return is the norm for a solar farm in Japan.....
