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 will be very difficult for the thief to spend the NEM without revealing their identity no

Just use Shapeshift or Changelly to exchange your NEM into another Crypto: Bingo. Not difficult at all.

Beside the torrential churning maelstrom of lies, deceit and obfuscation by TEPCO, I, as others, wish the workers of now and the future all the very best.

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.

Poor father. He has to live with that. He’ll blame himself until the day he passes, and it wasn’t his fault. I hope he gets help. Rebuilds a family with his wife. RIP kid.

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.

107 people’s deaths (JT, 107 people) and their memories totally disrespected by this disgusting company. How dare they. How dare they put hundreds of people’s lives at risk AGAIN. A friend’s partner was killed at Amagasaki and they are STILL distraught.

Posted in: Actor Keisuke Koide referred to prosecutors for drinking with underage girl See in context

Koide himself said: "From now on, I will take all criticisms and any punishment seriously and fulfill my own responsibilities,” he wrote. “As an adult, I am aware that I behaved poorly. I indulged, and I have no excuses.”

PLUS, regardless of how how old the child was:

Under the youth development ordinance, teenagers between 16 and 18 are forbidden from being taken out without prior parental guardian consent to do so between 11 p.m. and 4 a.m.

Koide thought it didn’t apply to him, his arrogance sees him set to be proven wrong.

Reminds me of March 11, 2011, 14:46.27. I literally had to yell in a drivers face to open the doors of the carriages that were already at the station’s platform --two were still not along the platform-- so that we could get off.

Well, he does come from a mine owning company that was shown to use slave labor during WWII. I guess it’s a learnt thing.

Sensibilities sometimes override sense, if people agree, they shouldn’t put agreement under threat by conditions such as, ‘You must speak in a way we deem polite’. Either agree or don’t, I say. It’s certainly most likely a key factor as to why you own a company, and those that bemoan don’t. You too, keep riding lady luck. (Not that I actually believe in it as a ‘force’, but certainly can recognise the sentiment).

Where you see queues and lines we see throngs and masses, hordes of many bearing disagreement, soaked in objection, but those that carry differences as rabid infections can keep over there, in the cages. Discourse, differences are important and I’ve got a big tent, echo chambers have never been my thing and neither has silent agreement, I tend to turn the volume up there, so sorry to break the delicately painted imagery. Great to read of someone having an excellent approach to staff, keep that cash till ringing.

I wish Japan could just ask straight out, face-to-face, with the world’s media present, ‘What is it that we can do to heal this terrible pain? We want to, must, move on while --of course-- holding the past in our thoughts so that it is not repeated.’

On getting the answer, act on it and thus so is the future more likely to become the focus.

Also, I’d be more prone to support the staues if they weren’t so Korea-centric, if --for example-- the hanbok/joseon-ot had the names of every nation who’s people had suffered rape in war (Which would include Japan) speak against the appalling, abhorrent act globally, not just yourself.
