Re: *** Fukushima *** and other nuclear-----updates and links
There seems to be a lot known by the tour guide that led a short cruise to an island in the Puget Sound. He said there are a couple pods of Orcas, killer whales, that live in the Puget Sound. Apparently, according to testing done by the fisheries up there, those Orcas are the most toxic animals on earth. Their number one food source is the salmon that run through the sound and the Pacific Ocean from Alaska to Oregon. The Orcas live in the Sound but have not been seen this year. This may be due to something in the environment or it could be that the salmon are massing somewhere else this year and therefore they're feeding somewhere else. No matter what, the seas are changing...and it doesn't appear to be for the better.

Former Kan aide regrets lack of info on Fukushima nuclear crisis
A former aide of Prime Minister Naoto Kan's Cabinet expresses regret in his book to be published soon over the lack of information provided by the Japanese government immediately after the start of the Fukushima nuclear crisis in March last year.

Tetsuro Fukuyama, a House of Councillors lawmaker of the ruling Democratic Party of Japan, says in the book based on his personal notes written while serving as a deputy chief Cabinet secretary in the Kan government that he believes the lack of information led the United States to question the Japanese government's ability to control the disaster.

Kane: Nuclear weapons violate human rights
The UN high representative for disarmament affairs has emphasized that the use of nuclear weapons is increasingly seen as being against human rights.

Angela Kane is scheduled to attend Monday's memorial ceremony in Hiroshima, marking the 67th anniversary of the US atomic bombing of the city.

In an interview with NHK, Kane said she gives her heart to the tragedies that happened in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. She added that it is important to especially tell young people what the United Nations is doing for nuclear disarmament.

Hiroshima marks 67th anniversary of atomic bombing
Monday marks the 67th anniversary of the US atomic bombing of Hiroshima. A memorial ceremony will begin at the city's Peace Park at 8 AM with Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda attending.

The updated list of the names of 280,959 victims will be placed at the cenotaph. It will include the names of 5,729 people who died in the past year, or whose deaths have been confirmed.

Those attending the ceremony will offer a moment of silence at 8:15 AM, the exact time when the atomic bomb was dropped in 1945.

Noda told reporters in Hiroshima on Monday that he wants to see a thorough discussion on the matter, rather than rushing to reach a conclusion.

Fukushima nuclear plant workers face stigma, threats

TOKYO — A growing number of Japanese workers who are risking their health to shut down the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant are suffering from depression, anxiety about the future and a loss of motivation, say two doctors who visit them regularly.

But their psychological problems are driven less by fears about developing cancer from radiation exposure and more by something immediate and personal: Discrimination from the very community they tried to protect

Viet Nam: Officials say nuclear plant will be safest
Viet Nam will rely on the latest advances in technology to ensure that its first nuclear power plant meets the highest possible safety standards, said deputy minister of Science and Technology Le Dinh Tien at a conference to improve communication about nuclear power yesterday.

The plant, which is currently being built in central Ninh Thuan Province, will be hundreds of times safer than the world's first reactors, which were built in the 1950s.

Russia in $21bn bid to be world's nuclear waste dump
RUSSIA took a significant step towards becoming the world's nuclear dumping ground yesterday.

Its parliament backed a law allowing the import of nuclear waste worth $21bn (£14bn) to the Kremlin over the next ten years.

The law, likely to come into force early next year, has been presented to the Duma as a way of freeing Russia from foreign debts and raising money for environmental projects.

TEPCO shows footage of tense conference scenes during nuclear crisis
Tokyo Electric Power Co. disclosed to the media on Monday video recordings of its teleconferences in the crucial first days of the nuclear crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi power plant in March last year, including footage of the then plant chief tensely reporting an emergency after a hydrogen explosion at the plant.

The video, taped from March 11 to 15 last year, also includes the visit of then Prime Minister Naoto Kan to the utility's headquarters during which he rebuked company officials. That entire portion of the video is inaudible, but it shows Kan speaking for over 10 minutes, with animated hand motions at points.

The utility, known as TEPCO, allowed the news media to view about 150 hours of footage of its teleconferences linking its headquarters in Tokyo, the Fukushima Daiichi and Fukushima Daini nuclear power plants in Fukushima Prefecture, and other locations.

The move came immediately after Noda in Hiroshima earlier in the day referred to the possibility of eventually abolishing all nuclear power plants in the country, the first time he has done so since taking office last September.

"This is serious, this is serious," Fukushima nuke plant chief after tsunami
TOKYO -- The command centre at Japan's stricken nuclear plant shook violently when hydrogen exploded at one reactor, and the plant chief shouted, "This is serious! This is serious!" videos taken during last year's crisis reveal.

Tokyo Electric Power Co. initially refused to release the footage, but the company is now under state control and was ordered to do so. The videos, seen Monday, are mainly of teleconferences between company headquarters in Tokyo and staff at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant after the March 11, 2011, tsunami critically damaged its reactors.

In the videos, then-plant chief Masao Yoshida can be heard complaining about phone calls to the prime minister's office not getting through and expressing frustration over interference from government nuclear safety officials whose technical advice didn't fit conditions at the stricken plant.

In footage taken around 11 a.m. on March 15, Yoshida screams to utility officials: "Headquarters! This is serious, this is serious! The No. 3 unit. I think this is a hydrogen explosion. We just had an explosion."

I hope it's not too bad as well. Our coastline is so beautiful and unspoiled. We have many beaches that you can go to on a weekend and find yourself alone for miles. Also, all of the Oregon Coastline is public - no private lots or developments block off access. We have decided to take the old river road over, Bear Camp Road. It follows the river and they lock the gates in the winter. We are hoping to stop and stay the night at Galice, that is where the Wild and Scenic section of the river starts. It will be interesting to take readings along the way. Lots of old growth forest and the road isn't traveled as much as the typical coast route.
