First, here’s to everyone being found safe. Secondly, to better ensure the safety of these service men and women, something needs to change, either back to how it was or a more safety secure future. Too many accidents happening for it just to be “These things happens”.

The Tokyo Olympics, where a minus equals a plus. The more minuses, the more truth about the waste of water and deadly heat, the more White Elephants the Olympics leave behind. 2020, a clearly badly thought out endeavour. Get it moved to October, or Hokkaido.

The Tokyo Olympic Committee is out in force today! So obvious. Don’t hold the Olympics in the torrid turmoil of a roasting summer!Hokkaido is beautiful, cool and perfect for sports! It’s OK to change things, if it improves things.

@Pap, they'd HAVE to continually sprinkle because if they don’t... ? With THAT sun beating down? You know what it’s like after a rain storm and THEN the sun comes out in August... SAUNA! Really bad idea, and as you say, massive waste of water.

@Zichi, not in your first post when detailing your ‘actions’ you didn’t. Nice try.

That was very strong here in Kobe. We were still in bed but we fled to street because its impossible to know what is happening. Checked the area and neighbors and entered again. Strongest I have felt in my 16 years in Kansai.

Epicenter Osaka-fu Hokubu mag 5.9. Kansai airport flights stopped also the other airports. The Shinkansen stopped.

Stayed tuned to NHK on smartphone.

@Zichi, perhaps clearly stating as to the reasons why you ran out of the structure you were in will prevent those not as knowledgeable from emulating you, as advice in numerous States/nations clearly details to 1. open exit door(s) and 2. stand/get under an earthquake resistant door way/table/desk and 3. NOT to run outside.

Posted in: Marijuana tops paint thinner as most abused substance in Japan See in context

The paint thinner is being abused, for its intended purpose is to thin paint, not get a person high.

Marijuana is being used illegally -- in terms of Japanese law -- not being abused. With legalisation, education, advise and government sourced marijuana, the economic advantages over the abuse of paint thinner would be significant.

Unlike you cleo I read something that another poster linked and learnt something:

https://www.thedailybeast.com/does-japan-ever-convict-men-for-rape

According to Ministry of Justice (There’s an oxymoron) studies, only 18.5 percent of sexual assaults were reported in a recorded five year period and THEN there’s the patriarchal depths to navigate. Stop defending, rationalising, the indefensible.

No lies, just facts.

@Hartwell et al: Voice that opinion to the women in your life, friends, mother, wife/girlfriend. I dare you.

Women, -- some ‘men' seem to need to realise -- are PEOPLE. Remember that. Treat them as such, not as objects, second class citizens who have no right to stand as equals. Teach boys that girls are not inferior, weaker, less able because IT IS NOT TRUE. Those on here who think otherwise, your time is up.

Posted in: Worst-hit reactor at Fukushima may be easiest to clean up See in context

@Albaleo: A vast swathe of Tohoku, parts of Ibararki, Chiba, Tochigi, Tokyo too, etc were contaminated, so still then are the plants, trees, and other vegetation that absorb this, then there’s a thing called spring, with pollen, and winds. Then there is resuspension of radionuclides when the soil dries out and the wind blows, the threat of fires too. Burning all that contaminated forest... it’s why the EU for example, pay the Ukraine a billion Euros a year, to stop the forests burning through management. There’s not just the immediate site to think about, but wherever any of the plethora f radionuclides fell back to earth in the rains of March 15. Wherever the plume wandered in the wind.

It astounds, that people suddenly develop amnesia, a total shade of white covering their sight into the now, the past, both distant and close: The financial institutions have been ripping people off for centuries. Scandals, robberies, bribes, dirty money, Sub Prime Mortgages anyone? You know, remember, Fanny May, Lehman Brothers... The Medici Bank? RBS? Sumitomo? Banco Espirito Santo? Industrial Bank of Japan? The list is exhaustive... Bitcoin has NEVER been a scam. It is not a scam. Neither has it been hacked, not Bitcoin.

Block chain is the future. Embrace the change. KNOW what you are doing. Don’t use 3rd party exchanges, always have control over your private keys and seed phrase. It’s easy.

Always own your seed words and private keys, NEVER let any one own them or control them. Then it’s easy, safe and fun.

What safety review, with human parameters? Oh, that again, see how well that works when we only have experience of the last 200 years-ish at best to (Japan seems to ignore sediment deposits etc from tsunami events in the distant past) determine these ‘parameters’, nature is beyond our imaginations, as proven by Fukushima. ’Safety review passes’? Laughable.
