Must watch...


Panel: Nuke plant operator behind fake email campaign also destroyed documents sought by investigators about public support for MOX fuel

A panel investigating attempts by Kyushu Electric Power Company to manipulate public opinion via an e-mail scam says that the utility has destroyed evidence related to the probe.

The panel was set up after workers at Kyushu Electric and its affiliates were found to have sent e-mails in favor of restarting the Genkai nuclear plant in Saga Prefecture during a government meeting with local residents in June.

Panel head Nobuo Gohara told reporters on Tuesday that the utility destroyed documents related to its activities in 2005 to try to win public support for using plutonium-uranium mixed-oxide fuel at the plant. [...]

Those SOBs... MOX is way more radioactive and dangerous than conventional fuel... it holds way more plutonium... those sick bastards.

TEPCO funds chair/professsorship at MIT — Nuclear researcher: “Nuclear researchers have a stake in reassuring the pubic that nothing bad is happening”

[... G]enerally speaking, [M.V. Ramana, a researcher at Princeton University specialising in the nuclear industry] said that nuclear researchers have a stake in reassuring the pubic that nothing bad is happening.

Yeah nothing bad is happening uh? Send that SOB to Fukushima.

ABC: Japan’s nuclear agency hides children’s radiation results

Japan’s nuclear watchdog has denied public access to the results of thyroid check-ups for more than 1,000 Fukushima children exposed to radiation.

ARREST THEM ALL.

Would appreciate Daniero if you could frequent the site periodically and post any updates.


No problem. This website seems to be updated regularly and the news articles posted there are pretty interesting. It's good that someone is looking out for children and mothers, but it's rather heartbreaking to read at times. I'll keep checking it out and posting summaries of articles I think are striking or interesting. Let me know if you want more detail on anything. Japanese grammar and English grammar are so different that machine translation tends to fail rather spectacularly.

Here are a couple more I noticed:

After 3 months of no detectable levels of cesium in Tokyo fallout, detectable levels of cesium 134 and cesium 137 were found on August 5th and 6th. This shows that radioactive fallout is still possible depending on weather patterns (though there was no rain on those days). The article states that it is at a level that is no danger to health. (The levels range from 3.9 to 5.1 Bq per meter squared).
savechild.net...

Results from whole-body counters. The page shows two reports. The first report shows the results of someone living in Tokyo who posted their report on Twitter. It shows the becquerel level and effective dose. The effective dose of this person from the Cesium adds up to around 0.0461 millisieverts. It also lists 16554 Bq as the measured amount of K-40. The text at the bottom of the report states, "The effective dose is evaluated as the amount of radiation exposure over 50 years. The amount of natural background radiation absorbed by the average person is believed to be approximately 2 millisieverts per year. The effective dose and absorption rate are evaluated using MONDAL3, developed by the independent administrative institution National Institute of Radiological Sciences(NIRS)."

The second report is from a dairy farmer who remained behind in Minamisoma, near Fukushima Dai-Ichi in the emergency evacuation-ready zone. It comes from NHK News Watch 9. It shows a total cesium level of 252422 becquerels, resulting in an effective dose of 1.1611 millisieverts.

Silly me. I shouldve figured that.

Japans positioning with nuclear power and their undercurrent of wanting the bomb is what got me to thinking about the possibility of there being an underground complex (UC) beneath Fukushima's south part of plant. Reading your stuff makes it even clearer. I cant help but think that is why the intense secrecy surrounding Fukushima since this accident/disaster began.

And Ive suspected that if they were building a nuclear arsenal, that the US was well aware of it, and probably behind promoting it as well, as Japan became after the war the US's main pry bar into east Asia.

When I put together the full report concerning the evidence that points towards this, Ill be sure to include the data youve provided. Thank you.

Daniero...another request...Zworld, Aircooled help also? Please translate Daiichi Power Station Buildings



Appreciate your help SO MUCH!!! Z, AC, myself and a lot of other folks would be unbelievably grateful if you could translate the names next to the buildings on this schematic of Daiichi. If you click on the "+" sign when the PDF doc it enlarges...and AC is fabulous with screen captures!! And Z excellent with putting pieces of the puzzle together!

www.tepco.co.jp...

Maybe with the help of Aircooled...he could do some screen captures and blow ups. Zworld would love to know the names...especially the FBB ("far back building")...

Thanks so very much for your participation on this thread - your talent is needed immensely!!

D and others, this is consistent with what Ive been finding concerning seawater samples. After seeing the latest posted by PC i couldnt figure how it could be so high so I went back over old samples. And this is an example of what I found.



The main question that keeps hitting me square in the face is how can you go from this to what they recently posted. It doesn't work like that. The rad counts should be going down, not up. And in places like Ena, 30 miles from Daiichi, you especially wouldn't be going from zero in June to off the hook in August.

(ON EDIT: Though there is a difference between ocean soil and ocean water testing, the above does both, and ND is the result)

I smell something fishy in the ocean and it aint fish. And the fact that the MSM isn't concerned about recent readings is another indicator of how little they really care. There should be headlines in every paper in this world that screams "CONTAMINATION WIDESPREAD AND GROWING. WHOLE WORLD NOW CONCERNED". Instead we are engrossed in the workings of our puppet politicians as they figure ways to screw poor people out of their social security.

Social security? What a funny concept to consider when at the same time they are poisoning us with a wink and a smile. And its always up to us to prove way beyond a shadow of a doubt that we are indeed being poisoned. And when we prove one of the 700,000 toxic substances they create is truly bad stuff and get it banned, they have something in the wings waiting to take its place that is even worse. And we subsidize it because we were such meanies making them take the other stuff off the shelf.

IM MAD AS HELL AND IM NOT TAKING IT ANY MORE!!!!!!!!!

I dont know if I shared this before. Its a little off topic. I was sitting at the comp one night feveriously researching stuff, and my roommate said, "you remind me of the guy in the movie "A Beautiful Mind"". At the time I laughed, but then I started to think, could that be what this is. But of course thats a silly thought.......isnt it? Hello? Anyone out there?................uh oh.

From that wonderful website EX-SKF comes this;




Decrease in White Blood Cells, Headache, Nausea in a Hospital in Sendai City, Miyagi

Tweets from a nurse (my very good guess from her tweets) in a large hospital in Sendai City, Miyagi Prefecture on August 10:

原因不明の白血球低下、頭痛、嘔吐増えてます。既存の診断名つけられて治療しても効果なしのケースうちの 院でもみかけます。もちろん全部放射能の影響というつもりはありませんが、これも事実です。

Increasing number of patients with unexplainable decrease in white blood cells, headache, nausea. They are diagnosed for existing illness and undergo treatment, but they don't respond to the treatment at all. I've seen those cases in my hospital. I'm not saying they are all because of the radiation exposure, but I'm telling you what I'm seeing.


One of the reasons I stopped lurking back in early June was because I wanted to see if anyone else felt nausea, lethargy and a feeling of walking around with a huge water balloon on their shoulders, that seemed to correspond with rad releases from Fukushima. I was constantly laughed at in my area for suggesting this. Well, laughed at by the few who werent experiencing anything, as most I talked to did feel what I and others were feeling. Hmmmmmm?

Several times throughout the day here in Tokyo I feel a rippling going up my chair shaking me subtly for just a few seconds.

Friday I saw one of the highest level Japanese politicians that I see every week. He had a very troubled, sad, tired look on his face suddenly.

Problems with the rice, problems with the straw fed to cows, perhaps problems with people's health.

The government isn't even trying to hide the fact that they are hiding as much information from us as they can.

Radiation Information
National radiation level measurements from the global environment scanning project and SAFECAST are updated in real time (every 5 minutes). We provide the latest measurement, an average of measurements of the last 24 hours and an easy to understand graph for every measurement point. We plan to continue adding measurement locations. (Beta version: about this site).

Clicking a location pops up a box that shows the Japanese name of the location and the time. The first box is the latest reading, the lower-left box is the 24-hour average, and the lower-right box is the annualized rate.
Under that is a link for detailed data.

The text at the bottom of that page is just talking about radiation in general, though it may be helpful to note the part that says, "Readings may temporarily increase. Please stay calm, as this may just be a temporarily fluctuation."

If you have an unobstructed or higher quality version of the background of the survey map, it would be much appreciated. The characters are rather blurry, making it quite hard to make out some of the technical words. I can make educated guesses, but I'd rather be 100%. If a higher quality scan doesn't exist, I guess I'll just have to make do.

Yes, we are all in a really sad state of affairs.

Anyone know who lives off the James Madison Hwy, Rt. 15 in Virginia? Some of the "Captains and Kings"? Would be interesting to know if they have a clue as to what is going on.

Sorry D, don't have that skill set. AC has been doing great with screen grabs. Imlite? You still out there? Any other photo enhancement gurus out there?

Morning gang. Eyeballs are hangin out today from looking for close-ups of the FBB. This is all I found on the Fbb, but I did find some more footage on the sourse of that discharge pipe. I will post shortly. Also a zoom of the site map focussing on the Fbb area

For reference the thermal imaging video in ACs' post linked above. I have saved a copy of it as it quite likely could disappear.


You know how we've been wanting to get access to those fancy magna BSP, israeli security cameras?

We have the entire time. The R1-4 static webcam is one. See how it changed flawlessly from visible light mode to forward looking infrared mode, with exactly the same angle and shot size? Can only come from the same position. Anyone who's ever tried doing panoramic photography or other multi-take, single position style filming will understand how difficult it is to match things exactly, let alone multiple cameras. The photos of the standard Magna BSP units show two lenses housed in a vertically symmetrical arrangement, on a pole. Stereoscopic 3d, infrared... defense-update.com...


Other than we know they have em, the main reason this can only be a magna BSP camera; technically, most digital cameras can actually only see in near infrared! The colour is determined through millions of (usually) red, green, green, blue filters with an infrared (iR) sensor behind them. Many cameras can be modified to iR, for ufo hunting types it's a godsend. Thermal infrared imaging of the sensitivity displayed, (far infrared, larger wavelength again) requires a cooled sensor (to below ambient), or else it simply can't detect the heat of a target below its operating temperature. Definately not a modified handycam or webcam, completely different technology. This is generally very expensive hardware, if you don't want it to look like it's been squashed through a pocket calculator. It could be FLIR brand from USA, as it is israeli and they do get lots of freebies, however I'd hazard a guess it's an inhouse design to reduce costs.

So in summary, that video shows capabilities far exceeding a standard webcam or consumer/professional video or photo camera of any type, it requires purpose built, high end hardware - that i'd love to get my hands on one day


These cameras would have some serious resolution, and this explains the 'fuzzy crane patch' I spotted earlier. Time/date/camera/mode information is my guess.

Busted big time again tepco.


Just got in from a night out so will reply to rest of posts later. Thank you all for your excellent contributions recently, PC, AC, ZW, vitchillo, ren1999 and anyone else I've missed (lots >_

Ok Tracing the discharge pipe, that is straight east of #5 and 6. Some pics are blurry. They swing the camera a lot, especially. when something important is near. You guys decide if this is straight flow from the useless treatment tanks.

Do I count as one of the early voices of this thread?

I've had to step back a bit as the level of stress being induced within my personal life was beginning to take it's toll in a wider field.

I've read every post though, so I have not been completely absent only a bit more detached.

Thank you to each and every one of you who've kept the torch alight.

To touch on a few topics, if I may?

 


Someone asked about a former intel analyst who had done some imagery deconstruction and blast pattern analysis, that would be SFA437 and as you will see if you look at his post history, he is far from absent, but rather active on other fronts.

Perhaps some of these new images will entice him to contribute once more.

 


A post I made back on 961 concerns much of the area in question:

Wow, are we on the same page this AM or what. Good work back at ya.

When checking the photos tonight, the debris field behind the mystery building, is that consistent with a section of roof from unit 3 hitting the side of the mystery building. It blows two ways, the section behind the building and the section above behind the transmission building. To me these fields dont look like they were either a) caused by the 3 blast vectoring between the mystery building and the transmission building or b) a section of roof from 3 hitting there. In the case of a) the field is to well tucked behind the mystery building, and in the case of b) Im assuming that the field wouldnt have such a well a defined perimeter, but Im no bomb expert, other than knowing they can hurt if you stand to close.


The flled behind the transmission building is actually a grade, fairly steep one too if I remember right. So that would certainly account for debris from R3 being "behind" the building.

Take a look at this picture:


The yellow line indicates the level at which any lateral force from the explosion would have propagated out from the building. This is roughly equivalent to the height of the lower portion of the front facade of the transmission building as seen here:


And here we see an example of direction of force:


This image indicates the blast shadow (that might even be the technical term, we'll have to hear from SFA437 on that) indicated by the black rectangle. I actually drew it over the front of the "tower" then moved it to it's present location:


Looking at this you see the "windows" blown out of the top portion and nothing of the bottom portion or the tower as you pointed out. I would surmise that this is due to construction details in the transmission building itself more so than the blast from 3.

The upper portion of the building that sustained the visible damage probably shares some design similarities to the top portion of the reactor buildings in that they are only relatively thin concrete panels hung over a steel skeleton, the lower portion of the building and the tower are likely more reinforced, thicker concrete as they would be load-bearing, or perhaps even cinder block construction.

All of these are crops from the Hi-res photos that can be found in cryptome's NPPW series.

All I have done is to open them in MS paint (if you haven't looked the Hi-res photos over like this, I suggest you do) and enlarged/cropped/added emphasis.

And that is my inexpert take on this.


To which SFA437 had the following to say:



You nailed it on the head. That was about as perfect an example of imagery analysis as I have ever seen. Want a job?

 


To help visualize warparound where shock waves are concerned I have the following images:

This is an overhead view with the center of the blast to the left of the two buildings. Notice how the circle of the blast wave curves around more tightly as it intersects the corners of building 1, which is represented by the smaller square on the left:


This is a few moments later:


Notice how the pressure is concnetrating just off the wall of building 2, indicated by the larger square on the right.

Now watch what happens to the blast wave as it flows toward the backside (assuming the blast takes place in front) of building two:


Think of building 2 as the slope behind the switching yard and you will understand how the upper portion of the side facing away from reactor 3 is damaged.
