EARTHQUAKE
Watching all these terrible pictures on TV , listening to the actual comments all the time .

Hoping all the best for our japanese members like "yokoinc" and his country .
A terrifying disaster ................speechless.

One can be glad sitting on a relatively secure and quiet piece of earth like here in centraleurope .
But nobody on earth can be sure not becoming a victim of nuclear radiation .
They didnīt learn from Tschernobyl, Cellarfield & Harrisburg.......   those greedy , ignorant idiots ....now itīs up to pay the bill.......again.

If you believe in god , folks , pray for the japanese . If you donīt believe just think about them & wish all the best .

   ARGGGGH  I just wrote a 20 minutes long post and edited it, somehow reposted it twice and then accidently deleted it! out of time to rewrite.
     heres the footnotes...Japan quake very bad - Un Real  - Bad Situation for all of us - 3rd Reactor failing - too many people on coastline.
  So much suffering,  where do you start to pick up the pieces from something this distructive?

My wife Yoko's son   Tsubasa  arrived in Tokyo from Sydney Thursday night he was in observatory of Tokyo Metro Govt Building 45th floor when it hit.
Thankfully he's OK but the recent footage of reactors blowing up are alarming.
Whole towns 17k people washed away up north there.
Re reactors
Yoko say the authorities have always been guarded about info the give out , its very managed and they cover up  a lot .
There were massive protests against their construction by locals 30/40 years ago but the development was bullied and pushed through with the faces of well known celebrities, stars and sports players spruking the go ahead non stop on TV.
The locals argument was if this is for Tokyo Electricity the build it in Tokyo Bay.

Watching it like most people probably ...... what utter destruction
My hart goes out to those poor people, literally running from the deluge  ... and so many lost.
The question is indeed how do you clear up such a mess and get back to 'normal' ? Though I dont think they'll find much normality there for a long time.
Though I do tend to agree that through the momentum of all the effort of clearing up and re-building that are now going to take place Japans economy will grow even more.
But before that they have an immense job ahead, if only dealing with the loss.

Didn't realize Japan is that small. I had it in mind like a continental world. This view might be come up by seeing this country as an industrial Goliath. eeehm I'm drivng a Mazda 6 btw. Could be difficult now ordering spare parts.
The news only show technique trusting people, they didn't care about problems and consequences before. Hopefully no Godzilla raises out of the disaster now.
My thoughts now are to the people who are missing their beloved family members and to the children who have lost their parents. You can build a new home but not a Mom or Dad.

I've been getting a lot of information feeds from the nuclear situation at the Fukushima-Daiichi site, as I am a nuclear worker myself. I will not go into details, but for real information please use sources such as

http://www.world-nuclear.org (http://www.world-nuclear-news.org/RS_Progress_by_on-site_workers_1703111.html)

http://www.iaea.org (http://www.iaea.org/newscenter/news/tsunamiupdate01.html)

Please be cautious with the intake of information from mainstream popular media posing as newspapers (such as De Telegraaf in the NL, which is NOT a newspaper), news broadcasts, and information coming from third parties - you know who they are....



Lets not forget that the real tragedy is the earthquake, already over 17000 casualties reported, this nuclear problem is but of minor significance in that light (it will have some collateral implications for sure, ofcourse). Let's not blow things out of proportion... The worlds gone to shit more than enough already...

blakhatz (Greg)..I'm glad  Tsubasa  made it to you & Yoko Safely and survived the disaster.
My Prayers and thoughts are with all of Japan and the Families and/all of the casualties. This is such a tragedy. Personally, I think things are worse than it is being let on or told to the Public.

Your a good'un PX, those links were a good informative read. Cheers
I thought you would have something particular to add considering you work in the nuclear world.
