Sometimes it may be helpful. Other times it may confuse people into thinking something new or different is happening. Thanks for the caps rant, though.

0114: The latest after-shock would probably have been felt by many people in their homes as the government advised people not to go to school or work today due to transport disruption and power cuts.

From what I gleaned from CNN and German Link TV, the disaster teams are stuck. No fuel, no roads, no transport and no one to lead the way into these towns.

Add to that the Japanese people who are reticent to admit there is a problem. It is a national mindset to endure quietly and not cause a fuss.

Have studied Japanese culture for over 20 years-both kids read/speak it (somewhat). Very insular culture.

Watch the Japanese news feeds-the older folks turn their lips up in a smile even when sad. The commentator have lilts in their voices as they are reporting grave details. Very common for Japanese to hide their distress.

Perhaps they could use helicopters to at least lower supplies to the towns the rescue teams cannot get into. Informative thread but no good news, all I have run across this evening shows things getting worse by the minute.

Heresay from a video: 11 reactors shut down - 6 in emergency situations.

Then of course we have the large aftershocks putting more strain on
everything.

I wish they would make an exception to the rule this time. No one outside of the country can
help if the Japanese Govt. doesn't tell the world exactly whats going on.

If you research the way international aid works, you will disturbingly find that the country being offered aid usually rejects the help, as the Japanese are doing now and we(US) did during Katrina. en.wikipedia.org...
edit on 13-3-2011 by premierepastimes because: more info



Thanks, will have a look into that later. I knew it happened but I don't know why, so will have a look for more information. I still think they could get aid there faster even if the country was fine with it from the off, but will stop going on about it for now and research more into it.

They cannot.
It is called "saving face". Most Asian cultures hide tragedy from the Western world. Because the Eastern cultures understand without words.

Earthquakes coming hourly again in Japan.

Has anybody heard how long the aftershocks are projected to continue. I know it is a completely different situation, but didn't the aftershocks only last a couple of days in Haiti, and weren't they much smaller.

I have really been worried that these might have all been "foreshocks" (even the 8.9) and the big one is yet to come. What is the probability that we could see a quake that is larger than the scale goes? Sorry, now I'm just fear-mongering. I'm gonna go to bed.

Keep up the good work, stay on top of this, see all of you later.

CNN just showing new videos of the Tsunami, very amazing show of mother nature's power. So very sad, people trying to drive in front of the waves.
