Posted in: High school girl killed, likely after being dragged 5 km by car See in context

Just an update on this. Police are saying that the 72 year old driver's car had no damage to the front bumper, bonnet (hood) or windscreen, however underneath was obviously damaged. They are thinking that the high school girl had already fallen down on the road before being dragged by his car. Maybe she was struck by another car at first.

Doesn't excuse his actions though. I can't imagine not noticing someone trapped under my car!

"The object was first discovered by Curtin University Honours student Tyrone O'Doherty in a region of the Western Australian outback known as the Murchison Widefield Array, using a telescope and a new technique he had developed.

Mr O'Doherty was part of a team led by astrophysicist Dr Natasha Hurley-Walker, from the Curtin University node of the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR)."

The Sputnik V doses manufactured in South Korea are not for domestic use. The vaccine is to be exported back to Russia. The doses also will be exported to Iran, Argentina, Algeria, Hungary and the United Arab Emirates, according to EDaily.

Not sure why this part was left out.

I only come here to read the news. The old site was much better for me. Now it's too loud and busy, confusing and cheap looking. Looks like some kind of generic marketing site. My eyes are burning!

Some of the Japanese news sites are reporting that the guy was "foreign looking" and that he spoke broken Japanese.

Posted in: Spent fuel cooling system back up at Fukushima No. 3 reactor See in context

Associated Press is reporting that the cooling system is running again.

They also said this...

Work to put up nets to keep out rats and other animals at Fukushima Dai-ichi plant in northeastern Japan inadvertently caused the power outage, TEPCO spokesman Akitsuka Kobayashi said. Details were not clear, and the outage was still under investigation.

Posted in: TEPCO partially restores power to cooling systems at Fukushima plant See in context

From another recent source...

The cooling systems in reactors one, three and four are not currently operational. The Tokyo Electric Power Company says it is unsure about the cause of the power failure but it has vowed to come up with a solution in a few days.

"in a few days"? As usual, Tepco are not trying hard enough.

Well, the American FAA has just grounded all U.S. Dreamliner Flights. They seem to be focused on the battery issues. These batteries are supplied by GS Yuasa Corporation, but I couldn't tell you where they are made.

My gas supply automatically shut off, so I had to go outside in my pyjamas to try and reset it.

Here in Ibaraki the earthquakes do seem to be hitting us more frequently and violently recently.

Posted in: Yakuza pundit: New laws unlikely to eradicate gangs See in context


I have a number of friends that are associated with and or work with the Yakuza, I know what they do and they know I do as well, but that doesn't stop me from being friends with them on a social basis only. The ones I know are pretty decent folks and are a hell of a lot of fun to party with!

I wonder if you also boast to your family that you hang out with scum that are involved in people smuggling, pushing drugs, kiddie porn, and generally leaching off society. Do you feel proud?

Why so much hate on here? Four guys doing what they want, enjoying themselves, and some of you are offended. I bet if JT put up a photo of a totally white piece of paper, somebody would still find something to complain about lol.
