"What is your Idea about the Nuckelchede-Video"
There is Mist coming from the Reactor, because it is cold in F'Shima
and everything inside of the Building is warm or hot but what is this
creeping Stuff coming until the Camera?
Is this just a Graphic?
Me- very confused!
A majority vote by the assembly is required to hold a referendum but Hashimoto's regional political party, the Osaka Restoration Association, is taking a cautious stance as the mayor is reluctant to hold one, citing the huge costs involved.
A Tokyo Institute of Technology professor received a large amount of donations from engineering firm OCL Corp. before he promoted lenient inspection standards for spent nuclear fuel casks that the company produced, the Mainichi has learned.
Professor Masanori Aritomi was the driving force behind the standards, which favored OCL Corp. The Atomic Energy Society of Japan (AESJ) adopted the standards for inspections of transportation casks.
Aritomi served as head of the panel on transportation casks and its umbrella organization, the nuclear fuel cycle department. He also took on the position of deputy chairman of the decision-making standards committee.
Tokyo Institute of Technology records show that Aritomi received a total of 14.85 million yen in scholarship donations from OCL between fiscal 2006 and 2010. Another researcher, a Tokyo Institute of Technology associate professor and a member of the sectional committee, received a 1 million yen scholarship donation in fiscal 2010
However, when asked about his involvement in the entire decision-making process, he said, "It cannot be helped if suspicion is raised over my neutrality. I think I should resign at least as the head of the sectional committee or deputy chairman of the standards committee."

Something has occurred to me concerning the situation in R2. I don't know what to think of the wild fluctuations or what is working and what isn't. It would take an honest utility releasing alot more data to know for sure, and Tepco doesnt appear capable of either honesty or more detailed data output.
But if the thermocouples are indeed working in an intense heat (and rising) environment, here is a possible scenario. Its only one of many though, so take it with a grain of salt.
When corium hits the bottom of the RPV, it may divide into fingers that exit through the weak points, ie the control rods and other penetrations. Then these fingers hit the concrete basemat and continue a similar process. Where grooves exist the corium will eat through faster. The corium is probably not a single mass at this point, but instead individual slag chunks that form their own channels.
The upper most parts form a crust where they are interacting with water. The lower parts eventually break away from the hardened crust and continue on with their journey. The hardened crust then becomes a plug in the channel. This happens with magma underground after a volcanic eruption. Future eruptions are dependent on when the magma breaks through the plug again.
In the case of corium, the breaking of the plug would occur from pressure exerted on it from below, when the corium slags hit groundwater. Eventually the pressure will reach the point of blowing the plug out and releasing the steam and heat back up into containment. If containment hasnt been breached into atmosphere, it will hold this pressure and heat, unless it builds to the breaking point.
Its just a wild theory.
ON EDIT: And probably not right as I believe that containment in R2 was breached on the 15th. Or were those readings and thermocouples not working after being exposed to temps of 2800 C. Hmmmmm? So many questions, so little honest data.edit on 14-2-2012 by zworld because: (no reason given)

Thanks. Been a while since I've checked in at his site.
And I THANK YOU FOR THE COLOR EMPHASES. It helps me and my aging eyes a lot.
Much appreciated. [color=Chartreuse]Let the whiners on that score deal with it. Some of us appreciate it and find it useful for several reasons.
[color=Cyan]Besides, color is part of life and very useful as well as esthetic.
In terms of Cliff . . . and his info . . . I wonder what percentage he's been accurate the last year. Anyone have any stats on that?
Certainly a lot of the above warnings seem somewhat plausible. Not sure about all of them. Some seem more than a little 'out there.'
World War 3 is here.
The aware observer sees the evidence as Wolf and the Other Blitzers carefully seed the linguistics of the propaganda channels here in the reptile owned anglo-american empire. They plant these seeds on orders of their masters such that we will all respond appropriately at the appointed time to act out our part in planned grand death ritual, World War 3.
World War 3 is here. The reptiles are even now planning the details of your death in their ritual sacrifice and feeding frenzy. Deny it, or accept it, your choice. A terrible choice, either way, with repercussions long lasting, and dread.
A terrible choice, to acknowledge that omnihumanity is marching along obediently - yet-again - to orders that will result in the deaths of billions in very short order, or to deny that such a possibility exists, to put to rest all the nagging worries that something is decidedly wrong, and to surrender to the mind-control, fully supporting the version of reality fostered on you by your ‘betters’.
[color=Salmon]A terrible choice, to own your position as one of very few aware and thus a member of the ‘insane conspiracy theory fringe’, or one of the masses, fully swallowing the lies and hoping that ‘this time is different’.
So, you are here now, watch Wolf and the Other Blitzers over the coming months noting their use of language and war symbols. Note who they speak with, and whom is ignored. See what subjects are brought up how often, and especially watch for what is not shown.
Follow with conscious awareness as they attempt to lead your mind to death in their ritual wars. The aware observer will grasp the language changes over these coming months as they begin to introduce the plan to the unprotected minds of humans all around you.
As Wolf and the Other Blitzers’ slogans say, ‘watch, then decide’. It is, after all, their lies, and your terrible choice.

Our friends at Berkeley don't seem to have an explanation for 9 times background in the rain, but are all worried about debunking a Canuck taking rad readings. Hmmmm. I wonder?
The world we live in is naturally radioactive, and this measurement is a perfect demonstration of that fact. The fallout from Fukushima is so tiny that very specialized detectors are needed to see it above the intense natural background. Handheld detectors will not do the job.

From Tepco's latest press release. Pretty strange. They've now convinced themselves and much of the world that the thermocouple is broken, yet they raised nthe level of water injection yet once again. If the things broken, why are they still freaking out.
Intrptr, is reference value the same value as what you said it might kick back to if broken.
break of wire with the fact that the direct current ohmic value is higher than ordinary status. The thermostat indicated 342.2°C (Reference value), and later we will finalize the decision of the soundness of the device.
The Tokyo Electric Power Company, Incorporated hereby announces that
resignation of Director, Mr. Yasushi Aoyama, which is effective from
February 14, 2012.
Inspection of inside of the primary containment vessel of Unit 3
At 10:08 am on February 14, for the purpose of determining soundness of
reactor primary containment vessel of unit 3 and internal facilities,
airlock* for the workers was opened and started visual inspection.
We plan to conduct same inspection for unit 2 accordingly.
