Death of Fukushima N-Plant Worker Attributed to Heart Disease - JIJI PRESS
workers engaged in efforts to stabilize the crisis-hit Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant are at risk of depression or death from overwork, a doctor who recently saw them said Wednesday.

Kimono for reactor buildings
Hopefully Reactor Unit 1 will have the first installed end of May 2011
TEPCO says a polyester sheet will be attached to steel frames, enclosing the 50-meter-tall building.
TEPCO is going to cover the Number 1 reactor building, which lost its roof in a hydrogen explosion in March. On Friday, workers cleared rubble so that a big crane can be set up near the building. TEPCO says a polyester sheet will be attached to steel frames, enclosing the 50-meter-tall building. The company says the cover can withstand strong winds. TEPCO also says it will install a ventilator with a filter to capture radioactive materials that would otherwise be concentrated inside. To minimize radiation exposure among its workers, the company says the steel frames will be pre-assembled as much as possible, shortening the set up time at the plant.

At 10:00 am on May 13th, we restarted transferring accumulated water on the basement in the turbine building of Unit 6 to the temporary tank. At 3:00pm on the same day, we stopped the pumps for the transfer (approximately 100 m3).
On May 13th, we sprayed dust inhibitor to approximately 6,000 m3 area on the north and east sides of the turbine building of Units 1, using an unmanned crawler dump truck in order to prevent diffusion of radioactive materials.
- On May 13th, we sprayed dust inhibitor to approximately 5,250 m3 areas including nearby Solid Waste Storing Facility in a conventional method.
On May 13th, 2011, we conducted nuclide analyses of radioactive materials contained in the air which was collected at the site of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station on the same day. As a result, some radioactive materials were detected as described in the exhibit. Accordingly, today we have reported the result of the analyses to NISA and the government of Fukushima Prefecture. We will continuously conduct the same sampling surveys.
"By bringing the reactors and spent fuel pools to a stable cooling condition and mitigating the release of radioactive materials, we will make every effort to enable evacuees to return to their homes and for all citizens to be able to secure a sound life."
At 4:53 pm on May 12th, as a part of work to switch the water injection
line to the nuclear reactor of Unit 3 from the fire extinction system
piping arrangement to the reactor feed water system piping arrangement,
we started water injection through the reactor feed water system piping
arrangement at approximately 3 m3/h in addition to the fire extinction
system piping arrangement at approximately 9 m3/h.
At 4:01 pm on May
13th, we changed water injection amount to through the fire extinction
system piping arrangement at approximately 6 m3/h and the reactor feed
water system piping arrangement at approximately 6 m3/h.
On May 13th, 2011, we conducted the sampling of the seawater near the
intake canal of Unit 1 to 4 of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station and
analyzed them. As a result, some radioactive materials were detected as
described in the exhibit. Accordingly, we have reported the result of the
analysis to NISA and the government of Fukushima Prefecture.
We will continue to conduct the same kind of sampling.
On April 14 in Kanagawa, iodine-131 was detected at 48,000 becquerels/square meters, and cesium-134 and cesium-137 were detected at 53,000 becquerels/square meters each on the surface of the soil with small gravels...
But schools don't stop the use of the school yards.
They have school gyms. They could wash the floor and the walls of the gym clean to drastically reduce the radiation.
Why do school teachers want to expose children to radiation?.....
It looks like "as usual, just like last year", but there is one big difference.
That is, school yards and the water in the swimming pools weren't contaminated with radioactive materials last year. For children, radioactive materials are a poison.
Why do you take children to a poison? "We can't see a poison" say schools, but that's not what grown-ups should be saying.
Children doing push-ups on the dusty school yards. Their lips almost touch the dirt that has radioactive materials. If you are a teacher seeing this and if you don't think there's anything wrong with it, you'd better quit right away. You do not have aptitude to be a teacher....
In Japan, they moved cows from near the Fukushima Nuke Plant to all over Japan, to 24 different prefectures. Germany and Switzerland adhered to 1 millisieverts per year. Japan is saying "you have to put up with radiation...".
