Fukushima plant struggles with typhoon threat
The operator of the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant is racing to secure storage space for tainted rainwater as another powerful typhoon approaches.
Tokyo Electric Power Company has begun moving the rainwater into underground pools once deemed too leaky. The water is the result of typhoons and downpours that have filled barriers around radioactive waste water tanks.
TEPCO has been storing the most contaminated rainwater in tanks and in the basement of a turbine building. But with Typhoon Francisco set to hit Japan’s mainland over the weekend, the tanks are full.
Japan’s nuclear regulator has approved moving the tainted water to 3 underground pools. The pools have a total capacity of about 9,000 tons.
TEPCO stopped using the pools after similar models leaked in April. The utility now says it no other option but to use them.
The utility also says it found 140,000 becquerels per liter of Beta-ray emitting radioactivity in an onsite ditch on Wednesday. The radioactivity has doubled since the previous day. TEPCO says it is transferring the contaminated water to a tank.

NRA chief to meet TEPCO head on nuclear safety
Officials from Japan’s Nuclear Regulation Authority have criticized a report submitted by Tokyo Electric Power Company on safety measures at its nuclear plants.
The NRA met on Wednesday after TEPCO submitted the report to the authority on Tuesday of last week.
The report outlines the measures TEPCO is taking to prevent radioactive water leaks and other problems at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi plant. In the report, TEPCO also says it is capable of safely managing 2 reactors at the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa plant in Niigata Prefecture. The utility has plans to restart the reactors.

Japan pursuing new nuclear disposal technology
The Japanese government plans to develop new technology that would cut the environmental impact of highly radioactive waste from nuclear power plants.
The waste is believed to have an impact on the environment that lasts tens of thousands of years. The government’s current plan involves burying it deep underground. But officials have yet to choose a site due to safety concerns.

Quotation: Mark Twain on patriotism vs. institutionalism


My kind of loyalty was loyalty to one’s country, not to its institutions or its office-holders. The country is the real thing, the substantial thing, the eternal thing; it is the thing to watch over, and care for, and be loyal to; institutions are extraneous, they are its mere clothing, and clothing can wear out.

Today’s Birthday: THE KRAY TWINS (1933)


The Kray Twins (1933)

Partners in crime, twins Reginald and Ronald Kray were the foremost perpetrators of organized crime in London’s East End during the 1950s and 60s. The brothers managed to escape justice for some time, thanks in part to their intimidation of witnesses, political connections, and quasi-celebrity status as nightclub owners. Eventually, however, their luck ran out. In 1969, they were sentenced to life in prison for the murders of George Cornell and Jack McVitie. Why was Reginald eventually freed? More… Discuss

The United Nations (UN) is an international organization founded to promote peace, security, and economic development. Representatives from the US, the UK, the Soviet Union, and China first met in 1944 to discuss the problems involved in creating such an agency, and the results of their talks became the basis for the UN Charter that was ratified in 1945.

MILK SHARING COULD ENDANGER BABIES


Milk Sharing Could Endanger Babies

Breast milk may provide numerous health benefits to babies, but websites meant to facilitate milk sharing could be doing more harm than good. Researchers tested 101 milk samples purchased from such sites and found that nearly three quarters of the samples were contaminated with disease-causing bacteria like E. colior contained harmful levels of bacteria such asstreptococci. Sellers’ claims that they were healthy or that their milk was safe were found not to be reliable indicators of product safetyMore… Discuss

 

THE MBIRA


The Mbira

The mbira, or thumb piano, is an African musical instrument that dates to at least the 16th century. Originally brought to Latin America by African slaves, it is made of a hollow gourd or wooden resonator and has several attached metal or bamboo strips that vibrate when plucked by the player’s thumbs or fingers. Some cultures, such as the Shona people of Zimbabwe, use mbira music to communicate with ancestral spirits. What objects are often placed on the soundboard to create a buzzing sound? More… Discuss
