Only 8 years?

This is a sad situation.

I'm American and I believe that changing everything to the metric system would be too expensive. The cost to change our infrastructure would be in the billions.

Big companies such as the auto industry would fight against using the metric system. At the end of the day, it would affect the U.S. economy so the imperial system won't be changed anytime soon.

I think this is a good idea! Many students don't like school because of bullying, anxiety issues, or some type of psychological issues.

Until Japan makes changes in its education system, this could be a good option.

Good news and about time.

Should've implemented this policy decades ago.

You want protection, one of the prices you pay.

Besides, take a look at the beaches, rivers, and parks. Do you mean to tell me the US military pollutes all those places too?

Oh let's not forget about Japan dumping radioactive wastewater into our oceans. But since they're doing it, they get a pass.

Posted in: Among Japan's neighbors, fear and frustration over radioactive water release See in context

Japan is releasing wastewater (not the type from rainwater drains) into the ocean. This is treated nuclear water used to cool their damaged reactors caused by an earthquake over ten years ago. The wastewater contains a radioactive isotope called tritium and who knows what other radioactive traces are being released into our oceans?

Now I don't want to write a story, but please tell me how releasing this poison into our oceans won't affect marine life. I also believe the ocean currents will carry this poison across the entire Pacific Ocean. The entire food chain will be affected. From invertebrates, fish, marine animals, and humans. Scientists were able to detect radioactive elements after the 2011 earthquake as far as California!

There is nothing I can do to stop this, especially when there are governments from other countries expressing their concerns about this. All I'm doing is telling everyone to stay aware and be careful out there...

How can you arrest someone on suspicion of possession?

I know. That's so lame...
