Posted in: Radiation found in rice from Fukushima Pref; more tests planned See in context

So if rice has 499 becquerels of cesium it's considered ok to eat? And not only that - the government is urging people to buy products from Fukushima where levels may be this high? What kind of bizarro world has Japan turned into?

Japan has such a bizarre working culture. I remember working somewhere and noticing that coworkers suddenly stopped talking to me, so I thought 'ok I must have done something wrong but I have absolutely no idea what it was'

Posted in: Reconstruction minister resigns over offensive remarks; Hirano takes over See in context

When they say he "resigned," does that mean he's out of a job, resigned, or does he still have some function and salary and office?

He still has a job, just not reconstruction minister

Speaking for Japan, Economics Minister Banri Kaieda pledged that his country “will take drastic measures to ensure the highest level of safety” for its reactor network.

Didn't he just say two days ago that all the nuclear plants in Japan are now safe enough to turn back on? They sure did quickly get up to the 'highest level of safety'
