Posted in: Japan to resume Fukushima rice exports

From green tea to cars Japan has seen radioactive goods returned to its shores.
Why is there an emphasis on the export of Fukushima agricultural products when there is still
a massive discharge of radiation from the unlocated corium at the ruined nuclear power station every single day,with no end in sight!
The government lost a credibility in my mind when I saw Fukushima produce appear in my supermarket at half price for the first time in the spring of 2011.
Japanese people won't eat it so maybe some ignorant foreigner will.....

If the root problem of the problem were addressed (Mombusho) and English education reformed then these baseball players wouldn't need interpreters....
Posted in: The extended use of interpreters by Japanese players (some, for their entire careers) needs to be looked at closely and a pragmatic policy put in place by the league to manage a situation that will only grow as more players from around the world, particularly from Japan, try to make it in the majors. A league-wide policy that limits the number of years an interpreter can be used by each international player to four years should be considered.

Japanese universities from Okinawa to Hokkaido have found abnormalities in animals living in Fukushima.
Obviously,the environment in Japan is contaminated.
Concealing food origin,lack of testing do not allow Japanese food consumers to safeguard their health adequately-the result of this deception will be tragic.....

Japan has an ageing population and one of the lowest rates of population growth in the world.
The demand for products and services is much reduced
The UK has a growing population and an economy that
allows the vast number of immigrants able to work legally to settle and make futures for themselves.
Japan is unlikely to fuel growth in a similar fashion so I expect things to get worse here.

I personally know three private investors with their money in solar farms(no trees felled)receiving back 10% a year back a on a 25 year contract.Big players like Sharp have poured massive amounts into the solar business because it makes money.While there are plenty if naysayers here,the truth is that there are profits to be made investing in technology which unlike nuclear dies not kill for thousands and thousands of years !!!!

Why the total?
The disaster is far from over-the release of radioactivity is ongoing, with no sign of an end in sight!

The end of the disaster?

After 3/11 the Japanese authorities were so unsure of the situation, large radioactive clouds passed over large groups of people but they were not told-if information is not given to the population before contamination then these pills are useless!!!!
Having seen the way in which Fukushima was handled by the government here, I have zero confidence in any official government information.
Living next to a nuclear facility in Japan is akin to playing Russian Roulette....
