The nuclear fuel rods from the cooling pools and the common pool will eventually be moved to the reprocessing plant in Aomori. Still leaves the question about the million tons of nuclear waste from the reactors.

Hard to believe after his Twitter storm in a cup, but he could be no worse than the current owners the Glazer family.

Man Utd’s owners built a ‘toxic culture’ that destroyed a giant in a $1.4bn demise. Legends are fed up so are their fans.

Will all the players and staff get red Teslas?

PCBs cause cancer. I worked in the industry and even in the 1960s/70s we suspected it did.

Studies of PCBs in humans have found increased rates of melanomas, liver cancer, gall bladder cancer, biliary tract cancer, gastrointestinal tract cancer, and brain cancer, and may be linked to breast cancer. PCBs are known to cause a variety of types of cancer in rats, mice, and other study animals.

Putin was planning his current invasion of Ukraine during the last year of Trump's office, and Putin informed him in a phone call over Ukraine that it was alright and he had the matter in hand and would so be resolved.

"PCB, an industrially synthesized compound with excellent insulation and heat-resisting properties, was used for various items such as electrical insulation oil, heat medium oil in transformers and capacitors, and carbonless paper. Between the start of production in 1954 and end in 1972, approximately 59,000 tons of PCBs were manufactured in Japan."

What if America abandoning Ukraine resulted in it being conquered by Russia? So be it?

That’s what NATO is for.

No, it is not.

Posted in: Record high number of ambulances struggling to find hospitals in Japan See in context

The many doctors I know during the pandemic had to work longer hours to the point of exhaustion. The nurses I know have said the same and a few have changed their jobs.

Some hospitals are better than others at receiving emergency patients who have tested positive for covid. Understandably, people with positive covid tests can not be allowed into a part of the hospital where there are other patients. But nonetheless, they still need emergency treatment, even life, and death.

The pandemic has exposed the lack of public hospitals. There are about 8,000 hospitals but I believe only 800 are public ones.

There needed to be a system in every city for treating emergencies with patients who have covid or tested positive. but without exposing other patients.

I live very near to our municipal hospital. Ambulances go there all day long.

And?

What does that have to do with the fact hospitals reject ambulances.

Not all hospitals refuse ER ambulances. While it is a problem, especially during the night, and needs a solution.

As a paramedic in Canada a hospital could receive 3 even 4 Ambulances at the same time and that is why ERs have multiple teams.

> So the hospital near you get ambulances it doesn't mean they aren't reject others.

Not to mention inter hospital transport.

Two days ago, you posted you had given up on your country Canada 20 years ago.

My late wife was regularly transported from one hospital to another for a particular treatment then returned the same day each time coming and going through the ER bay.

The article is clearly pointing out a fact, not a perception.

I have had only one medical emergency during the night in 30 years and on that occasion, it worked out for me to have an operation.

A lot as to do where you live.

The post is about Tokyo.

In the UK, the "999" (The world's oldest emergency services phone number) emergency services are government-run. It is overseen by Ofcom. The operators are trained staff. I have a cousin who is a qualified nurse who works for the service. They can access the condition of the injured person and give medical advice. They can inform the ambulance of what is happening at the scene.

I was trying to explain this to my father back in the UK. I said to him, imagine you have hurt your foot and you broke your big toe. You have to search for a hospital/clinic that deals with feet. You see the doctor and he tells you he does treat feet, but not toes. So you pay his fee and have to start the search again.

Dreadful stories in the UK. Read one about a 95-year woman collapsing on the street. An ambulance was called via the emergency services but it took 11 hours to arrive. Other stories of patients being left for hours in hospital corridors.

The waste, mostly consisting of condensers and lighting ballasts, contains high concentrations of polychlorinated biphenyls that are harmful to humans and was disposed of in municipalities surrounding the plant before the 2011 nuclear disaster triggered by a massive earthquake and tsunami, according to the city of Muroran.

These are parts used in tube lighting and are not connected with the nuclear power plant.

It is safer if these parts are dealt with and not just abandoned somewhere.

The toxic compounds, known as PCBs, were used in products such as insulating oil for electrical equipment but their production has been banned in Japan since 1972 following a 1968 mass food poisoning outbreak. The government has been proceeding with the disposal of waste containing PCBs.

PCBs are dangerous to people and this plant is equipped to deal with them.

Russia's flag carrier has started dismantling aircraft to recycle their parts for use in other airplanes. A shortage of parts fueled by wide-ranging sanctions has Moscow looking at how to recycle its existing fleet to keep airplanes flying, reported Izvestia Monday.

Taxes do not pay for all the woes of society and bearly cover the essential items. The rents in LA and SF are now beyond the means of original working folks.

I think Apple, and the likes of Google and the other big tech companies in SF should be doing more to provide affordable accommodations.

Bezos could make his movie and fix the LA homeless.

The situation in the article should never happen nor many others posted in the comments.

For three years I’ve attend my local hospital every three months. We are required to wear a mask and a machine checks our temperatures at the entrance but other that no problems. There is a wing for covid patients. During that time I have also made additional appointments without a problem.

Years ago in the middle of the night I had an emergency and was taken to hospital for an immediate operation. No problems with that.

Is "Mayer" a special title? While he was Mayer, NY was attacked by the worse terrorist attack in US history.
