See the latest MLA handbook for proper citation form to use with live sources and provide an annotated bibliography at the end of your day. Failure to include the source your info is accessed from will drop your grade 5 points.

NEWS ADVISORY: U.S. chopper detects radiation, aircraft carrier suspends aid activity


Now that part wasn't made clear before. Not only moved offshore more, but suspended aid activity. Wow.

The wind at the Fukushima plant is expected to blow south later today, although it won't be sufficiently strong to affect Tokyo.

I've not the faintest idea. Perhaps they mean they truly have them under control now?


The late night and overnight news within the US has been pretty well mangled. Am I correct in that there are 2 blown reactors, and one blown fuel tank elsewhere at this point? I've completely lost track of actual numbers right now with so many sources stateside reporting conflicting information.

BREAKING NEWS: No.1, No.2 reactors pull out of emergency: TEPCO - Kyodo

Reactor No. 3 still in trouble.

Japan nuclear blast could be more deadly than Chernobyl, experts fear

Experts in Israel and abroad divided on scope of disaster at Japan's nuclear plants, as Japanese government hasn't provided accurate information regarding threat posed by explosions at Fukushima nuclear power plant.

Since the Japanese government has not provided accurate information regarding the possible threat posed by the explosion at the Fukushima nuclear power plant, experts in Israel and abroad are divided on the scope of the disaster and the ramifications for the environment.

It appears that immediately after earthquake warnings were first heard, the Japanese authorities shut down all six reactors located in the affected region, which lies 250 kilometers north of the capital Tokyo, by cutting off the flow of electricity to the reactors. But the emergency generator, whose function is to provide power to the pump responsible for cooling the reactor, did not activate. As a result, the reactor's core began to heat up.

At the same time, radioactive materials and gases were emitted into the air, but measurements taken indicate that the amount was relatively minimal. The most dangerous elements discharged were iodine and cesium, two by-products of the nuclear fission process that takes place in nuclear plants. These are two relatively volatile compounds that can easily spread into the atmosphere.


One thing I know for sure... This MOX thing is way worse than Chernobyl. So it takes 2 million time less material from reactor no. 3 to make it out as much as Chernobyl... so probably any release of material from Reactor 3 makes this worse than Chernobyl...

Hey man, I sent you a u2u but my connection is being spotty at the moment so I am not sure if it went.

To answer your question, Im guessing within 8 hours. Now that cooling has failed, its basically cat and mouse to see if they can inject coolent fast enough to keep up with it boiling off, which they cant, as it basically flash boils as soon as it gets there.


Lets all hope I am wrong on this one.

Tepco is also saying it has safely cooled down two reactors at the Daini plant; they are still working on cooling the three at the Daiichi plant - both in Fukushima Prefecture.

I gotta go for tonight, see you all later today.
