Was thinking the same... I suspect their periodic announcement of finding leaks are just intentional dumping to get rid of mounting contaminated water.

Funny, last time I checked, you don't have to initiate to go to war... and I thought that is why this topic is being debated.

FEN... brings back memories of the 80's when things were still vinyl and Tower records began to boom in Japan. RIP Casey, I certainly enjoyed listening to your show every Saturday back then.

Posted in: 2 quakes strike off coast near Fukushima See in context

But thanks to strict building codes, even powerful quakes that might wreak havoc in other countries frequently pass without causing much damage.

While that may be true, let's also make clear that building codes before 1971 (and some percentages before 1981) were proven by Kobe earthquake that it is prone to fail.

He intends to counsel partner factories that employ interns "so what Kameda is experiencing won't happen again."

I can't force myself to think his intention is of a good nature...

Diving was surely one to argue but that obstruction call against Olic with the keeper denying Croatian the equalizer was the worst call of the game.

I don't understand those that fail to comprehend what 'negligence' means. A motorized vehicle obviously can be a dangerous weapon; it has lots of horsepower, can be fast, and things can go wrong in a split second. It requires the person to be fully aware and in control at all time to drive, failure to understand that, is simply called negligence.

Posted in: Obokata agrees to retract stem cell papers: RIKEN See in context

There were couple dozen... and I'm more curious as to why you want to know the names... the most important factor was that this was supposedly an "easy path" to stem cells and when many have trouble replicating including one of the senior author Dr. Wakayama, nothing else really matters imo.

Posted in: 1-yr-old girl dies after being hit by car in Iwate supermarket car park See in context

Guessing the car was parked and made a left turn as it proceeded to get out hitting the poor girl which only means the girl was being unprotected walking on the left side of her mom and was out of sight from the old lady's point of view... at least that's the only theory I can think of mentioning about "turning left"

Seems the mass in Japan are following the "three wise monkey"... and this project is to make it easier to follow; unfortunately the problem is real and won't just go away.

Posted in: Nuclear regulator OKs plan to build underground ice wall at Fukushima plant See in context

What an expensive project for something to be a temporally solution... it's like building a motor to move a fan so it can cool the motor
