No. of reactors applying for safety checks toward restart rises to 16

Tohoku Electric Power Co. applied Friday for a state safety assessment on its No. 2 reactor at the Onagawa nuclear power plant in northeastern Japan, making it the 16th reactor for which procedures have begun toward restarting operations.

The plant in Miyagi Prefecture was the nuclear complex located closest to the focus of the magnitude 9.0 earthquake in March 2011, which was followed by huge tsunami waves that set off a nuclear crisis at Tokyo Electric Power Co.'s Fukushima Daiichi plant in neighboring Fukushima Prefecture.

Although the Onagawa plant was rattled by the huge earthquake, all three reactors halted automatically and Tohoku Electric Power has been restoring the facilities affected by the natural disasters.

Workers given OK for overnight stay in Fukushima

Japan's central government has decided that under certain conditions workers will be allowed to stay overnight in some of Fukushima's off-limit areas.

The purpose is to speed up the decontamination process nearly three years since the March 2011 nuclear accident.

The decision applies to areas where residents are currently permitted visit their homes only during the daytime.

The conditions attached to over-night stays stipulate that workers be involved in projects deemed especially indispensable for restoration and revival, and that radiation levels are 20 milli-sieverts or less per year.

Former TEPCO employee seeks donations for downtrodden Fukushima workers

As a former employee of Tokyo Electric Power Co., Akihiro Yoshikawa says he knows about the miserable conditions, declining morale and how workers are treated like garbage at the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant.

His mission now is to spread awareness of the circumstances surrounding those struggling to deal with the accident at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant and to help them get through the winter.

“I wanted to get people thinking about their working environment and do something to improve it,” Yoshikawa, 33, said.

Yoshikawa and his friends are now collecting donations to deliver heat packs and long underwear to the workers.

Frozen food maker recalling 6 million packages over pesticide concerns

A frozen food producer is recalling up to 6.3 million packages possibly tainted with pesticide after customers complained of strange odors emanating from the products.

Officials of Maruha Nichiro Holdings Inc., the nation’s largest seafood processing company, said Dec. 29 that products produced by a subsidiary were found with malathion, a pesticide of relatively low human toxicity that is not carcinogenic.

The frozen food was produced by Aqli Foods Corp. at its plant in Oizumi, Gunma Prefecture.

Maruha Nichiro is recalling all products from the Gunma plant that are currently on the market and looking into how the pesticide was mixed into the food.

Hmm... what a coincidence...

Japan population shrank at fastest pace since WWII

Japan's population shrank last year at its fastest pace since the end of World War Two. This marks the 7th straight year of decline.

A health ministry survey shows that one million 31 thousand babies were born in 2013. That's down 6 thousand from the previous year and the fewest since the end of the war.

The estimate also shows one million 275 thousand people died last year. That's an increase of 19 thousand from the year before and the most after the war.

These figures show Japan's population dropped by 244 thousand last year.

Dairy farmer records changes to his Fukushima village

DATE, Fukushima Prefecture--Kenichi Hasegawa’s home videos and photos do not contain the usual fare. They show cows heading for slaughter, villagers bidding farewell, and men in protective suits roaming the village.

Hasegawa said he bought a single-lens reflex camera and a camcorder immediately after the Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami triggered the accident at the nearby Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant in March 2011.

“I have to keep records for the sake of posterity,” said Hasegawa, a 60-year-old dairy farmer.

His home village of Iitate in this northeastern prefecture was once filled with edible wild plants in spring, mushrooms in autumn and wild boar hunts in winter.

But that peaceful life in the mountains came to an abrupt end when the nuclear accident spewed radioactive substances over the village.

Eight members of four generations in Hasegawa’s family once lived together. They are now separated in four households.

Fukushima Govt. & Fukushima Medical University Signed Secrecy Pact With IAEA

January 1st, 2014 | Add a Comment

Tokyo Shimbun is reporting the results of their investigation into the dealings of the Fukushima prefecture government, the medical university and the IAEA. There has been ongoing suspicion about the openness and honesty of what has been ongoing in Japan. Tokyo Shimbun has confirmed that these government entities did sign a secrecy agreement with the IAEA. The Fukushima Medical University has been the main source of all public data on exposure and had been dictating what medical care many in the region were allowed to receive related to radiation issues.

Both the prefecture and the medical university have been the subject of growing distrust from the public due to their efforts to downplay problems and withhold information from the public. Tokyo Shimbun’s work has confirmed this problem to be the case. A machine translation of the article is below.

San Francisco County Health measured radiation 5 times the normal amount.

"County health officials first learned of the radiation levels last week, and they sent their own inspector on Dec. 28 to Pacifica with a Geiger counter. Using a different unit, the county inspector measured the beach to have a radiation level of about 100 micro-REM per hour, or about five times the normal amount. REM stands for “Roentgen equivalent man,” a measurement of the dosage and statistical biological effects presented by radiation.
Although the radiation levels were clearly higher than is typical, Peterson emphasized that it was still not unsafe for humans. A person would need to be exposed to 100 microREMs of radiation for 50,000 hours before it surpassed safety guidelines by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, he explained."

I'm going to look into this further. Can you all please look into this to see if the information could possibly be false as well?

Japan’s massive stockpile of plutonium casts shadow over nonproliferation efforts

Nuclear policy experts from around the world discussed a broad array of issues concerning the use of plutonium in nuclear power generation at a recent symposium in Tokyo.

The symposium, titled “Managing Spent Fuel: To Reprocess or Store,” was jointly sponsored by The Asahi Shimbun Co. and Princeton University. Discussions revolved around the wisdom of Japan’s energy policy of utilizing plutonium for power generation under the government’s nuclear fuel recycling program.
.
.
.
NEIGHBORING COUNTRIES SUSPECT JAPAN HAS HIDDEN PLUTONIUM AGENDA

Japan’s massive stockpile of plutonium and what should be done with it was the topic of discussion for the first section of the symposium. Steve Fetter, a former U.S. White House official during the Obama administration, pointed out that if the reprocessing plant in Rokkasho, Aomori Prefecture, starts operation, Japan’s stockpile of plutonium will keep growing despite the lack of a plausible plan to use the material.
.
.
.
FACT FILE: JAPAN HAS 44 TONS OF PLUTONIUM WITHOUT PLAN FOR ITS USE

Japan’s policy of promoting nuclear fuel recycling has reached a dead end.

Fast-breeder reactor technology was supposed to play the central role in the nuclear fuel recycling program Japan has been promoting since the 1960s. Assuming that the world would eventually run out of uranium, the government developed a plan to extract plutonium from spent nuclear fuel at a reprocessing plant for use in fast-breeder reactors, which are supposed to produce more fuel than they consume.

The Japan Atomic Energy Agency says it found that one of the 8 computers in the central control room had been illegally accessed more than 30 times from a South Korean website after an employee updated free software on the PC last Thursday.

Agency officials say about 42,000 inter-office e-mails and staff training reports were stored in the computer.

Old story... very long article but well worth reading... it's mindblowing...

USS Calhoun County sailors dumped thousands of tons of radioactive waste into ocean

They asked the dying Pasco County man about his Navy service a half-century before. He kept talking about the steel barrels. They haunted him, sea monsters plaguing an old sailor.

"We turned off all the lights," George Albernaz testified at a 2005 Department of Veterans Affairs hearing, "and … pretend that we were broken down and … we would take these barrels and having only steel-toed shoes … no protection gear, and proceed to roll these barrels into the ocean, 300 barrels at a trip."

Not all of them sank. A few pushed back against the frothing ocean, bobbing in the waves like a drowning man. Then shots would ring out from a sailor with a rifle at the fantail. And the sea would claim the bullet-riddled drum.

It wasn't long before Albernaz began keeping a different kind of diary. He titled this new log "Nuclear Waste Dumping Diary."

Jan. 20 1957: "371 tons atomic waste."

Feb. 7, 1957: "368 tons atom waste."

Nov. 13, 1957: "299 (tons) poison gas (and) A.W."

One of Albernaz's last entries was on June 12, 1958: "200 tons. Spec. weapons," or special weapons. That was the day, Albernaz later told his wife, that he helped dispose of an atomic bomb.

The Calhoun County sailed out of Norfolk, Va. with two giant crates. The ship's log noted it dumped "confidential material" at 2:31 a.m.

Albernaz's wife said he told her about that trip. He said the crew was told the crates contained two atomic bombs. Other sailors interviewed said the occasional dumping of disassembled atomic bombs occurred several times in its history.
