Posted in: Abe to become Japan's 7th PM in 6 years after landslide LDP win See in context

@fupayme I think you have things a bit backward. If Abe does what he says the yen will drop in value not increase. This is the reason the yen has dropped so much since the election was announced.

This happened last year in San Fransisco just a few days before the 3-11 quake. Scary. http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2011/03/redondo-beach-authorities-report-large-fish-kill-at-king-harbor.html

Isn't this just the best news? Just when you thought it was safe to go back into your local supermarket (play jaws theme). More than a year after the disaster we are now learning that there has been little to no testing in place and things seem too be just as bad as most of us thought. There has also been reports since Sunday of Shitake, bamboo shoots ect all being well over the government limits and being farmed from as far as 360km from Fukushima. http://enformable.com/2012/03/cesium-found-in-bamboo-shoots-over-200-kilometers-from-fukushima-daiichi/

I have been in Japan for a long time and have read this same story so many times. I still can't understand why people think it is OK to pop down to the store or wherever and leave such young children unattended.

I saw this on the news last night but the children hadn't died yet. First think I though was where were the parents? And as usual leaving young children alone at home for any reason is not a good idea. Honestly, wtf are people thinking???

Nicky: Try and call an ambulance and see what happens. The ambulance may get to the scene quite quickly and promptly load the patient into the back, efficiency ends there. The attendants are not allowed to do anything other than take your temperature and blood pressure and then comes the wait. Yes, you will sit in the ambulance outside your building while they make a flurry of phone calls trying to find a hospital that will accept you. This could take 10 minutes but it may also take an hour or two and in the mean time you just have to wait. My advice to everyone is to know which hospital has a 24 hour emergency room and if you are seriously injured or really sick call a taxi and go directly to the hospital. They cannot turn you away once you are there and if you are really bad off you will been seen before other less serious cases. People die in the back of ambulance while waiting to get accepted to a hospital all the time, don't take the chance.
