Waterbug, I'm sorry to see you haven't been feeling well...

My health HTF last October...immune system collapse, how ironic

I finally found a doc in Detroit that will do Vitamin C IV's...50000 units...after I had 3 surgeries in 6 weeks for infected lymph nodes, teeth, etc...coughing up blood, I thought I was a goner.

Makes me smell like oranges! but I think they are helping, bloodwork is getting better.

New measure to contain tainted underground water

The operator of the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant says it will pump up underground water at additional sites near a storage tank to prevent further spread of contaminated water.

More than 300 tons of contaminated water leaked from the number 4 tank set up on a hillside in August. In response, Tokyo Electric Power Company dug monitoring wells to check the scale of the leak.

The company said it had detected 220,000 becquerels per liter of beta ray-emitting radioactive substances on Monday in water collected from a well situated 10 meters north from the tank.

Antinuclear Japanese lawmaker breaks protocol with letter to emperor

In a rare gesture breaking protocol, a Japanese lawmaker known for his antinuclear activities handed a letter directly to Emperor Akihito on Thursday at an autumn garden party hosted by the emperor.

House of Councillors lawmaker Taro Yamamoto told reporters afterward he simply wanted the emperor to know about the current health effects of the nuclear crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi power complex, but his action drew swift criticism from the government and other lawmakers on grounds it could be interpreted as an attempt to use the emperor for political purposes.

Tokyo Electric Power Co. on Thursday reported a group net profit of 616.20 billion yen for the April-September period, amid cost-cutting efforts and electricity rate hikes to recover from the 2011 crisis at its Fukushima Daiichi complex.

The figure compares with a net loss of 299.48 billion yen a year earlier.

what they reckon they doing/done in usa for contamination (interactive map from wsj. taken off zerohedge)

"Waste Lands. America's forgotten nuclear legacy."

[link to projects.wsj.com]

"During the build-up to the Cold War, the U.S. government called upon hundreds of factories and research centers to help develop nuclear weapons and other forms of atomic energy. At many sites, this work left behind residual radioactive contamination requiring government cleanups, some of which are still going on.
The Department of Energy says it has protected the public health, and studies about radiation harm aren’t definitive. But with the government's own records about many of the sites unclear, the Journal has compiled a database that draws on thousands of public records and other sources to trace this historic atomic development effort and its consequences."

Modelling modules coordinates construction

Advanced computer modelling is helping the construction of new nuclear power plants in the USA. Teams making power plant modules at separate sites are working from the same plant model, which is updated daily.

There are two AP1000 units under construction at Vogtle and VC Summer in Georgia and South Carolina respectively, with a further unit in preparation at each site. The modular design of AP1000 allows engineers to create parts of the plant before construction officially begins.

Swiss nuclear plant to close in 2019

BKW said it had "now decided to continue operating (the plant) until 2019, in compliance with all safety requirements, following which the plant will be taken off the grid."

NRC finds eight operators at Susquehanna fail to meet minimum medical qualifications

In June of this year, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission notified Pennsylvania Power and Light of violations at the Susquehanna Steam Electric Station, which they own and operate.

The violations were in relation to eight licensed reactor operators, who were found to not meet minimum health requirements due to permanent disabilities or illnesses, yet were still allowed to perform licensed duties by the licensee between August 2007 and June 2012.

According to an inspection report filed by the NRC, federal regulators found eight instances in which PPL did not notify the NRC within 30 days of learning of changes in licensed operator medical conditions that involved permanent disabilities/illnesses.

The NRC also found that PPL did not submit complete or accurate information about those workers, despite having submitted three licensed operator renewal applications which certified the medical fitness of the applications and stated that no restricting license conditions were necessary.

Largest European Iter contract so far

A Franco-German consortium has been awarded a contract for the supply of climatic, mechanical and electrical systems at thirteen buildings, including the Tokamak complex, at the Iter fusion reactor project.

The contract - worth some €530 million ($715 million) - was awarded to a consortium comprising three GDF-Suez subsidiaries (Cofely Axima, Cofely Endel and Cofely Ineo) and Germany-based engineering company M + W Group. It is the largest contract awarded so far by Fusion for Energy (F4E), the European Union's organization for coordinating Europe's contribution to the Iter project. Europe is responsible for the delivery of the 39 buildings that the 42-hectare Iter site at Cadarache in southern France will host.

A holding company is a company or firm that owns other companies' outstanding stock. The term usually refers to a company that does not produce goods or services itself; rather, its purpose is to own shares of other companies. Holding companies allow the reduction of risk for the owners and can allow the ownership and control of a number of different companies.

Yep, seems like a Tepco idea...reduce their risk while allowing control.

Moniz said he was shocked to see the scale of the damage that remains more than 2 and half years after the tsunami disaster and the nuclear accident.

He said he also sensed how difficult work at the plant is with workers required to wear full face masks and other protective gear.

LDP questions plan to let Fukushima evacuees go home

TOKYO — A ruling party official has called into question a government plan to let people who fled from the Fukushima nuclear disaster go home, saying the government should identify areas that will never be habitable.

The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant was battered by an earthquake and tsunami in March 2011, leading to meltdowns and explosions that sent plumes of radiation into the air and sea.

About 150,000 people were evacuated. A large area of surrounding land is off-limits because of radiation but the government is hoping to eventually allow everyone to go home.
