Perhaps someone with a little knowledge can confirm if this is correct-I read it earlier today.
To make Potassium Iodate crystals with iodine tincture,you put some in a small metal container (lid from a jam jar)

Suspend this from heat-but not directly on the heat.
Using a second recepticle with ice-lower directly above the heated tincture.
Pure Potassium Iodite crystals are then formed on the underside of the lid containing the ice.
These can then be scraped off ready for use.

Sounds quite crude I know,but it is supposed to work.

Can anyone clarify ?

Present status of Fukushima




Status of quake-stricken reactors at Fukushima nuclear power plants TOKYO, March 16, Kyodo The following is the known status as of Tuesday evening of each of the six reactors at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant and the four reactors at the Fukushima No. 2 plant, both in Fukushima Prefecture, crippled by Friday's magnitude 9.0 earthquake and ensuing tsunami. Fukushima No. 1 -- Reactor No. 1 - Cooling failure, partial melting of core, vapor vented, hydrogen explosion, seawater pumped in. -- Reactor No. 2 - Cooling failure, seawater pumped in, fuel rods fully exposed temporarily, vapor vented, damage to containment system, potential meltdown feared. -- Reactor No. 3 - Cooling failure, partial melting of core feared, vapor vented, seawater pumped in, hydrogen explosion, high-level radiation measured nearby. -- Reactor No. 4 - Under maintenance when quake struck, fire caused possibly by hydrogen explosion at pool holding spent fuel rods, pool water level feared receding. -- Reactor No. 5 - Under maintenance when quake struck, temperature slightly rising at spent fuel pool. -- Reactor No. 6 - Under maintenance when quake struck, temperature slightly rising at spent fuel pool. Fukushima No. 2 -- Reactor No. 1 - Cooling failure, then cold shutdown. -- Reactor No. 2 - Cooling failure, then cold shutdown. -- Reactor No. 3 - Cold shutdown. -- Reactor No. 4 - Cooling failure, then cold shutdown. ==Kyodo

Just heard another fire breaks out in reactor number 4,so is it not time to really get people far away from this

It went up to 36-37 at some time and now it is lowering back down to around 33.
Second line for the mods.

BBC reporting reactor 4 is now on fire with reactors 5 & 6 heating up.

Not good.

Fire breaks out again at Fukushima's No. 4 reactor: TEPCO TOKYO, March 16, Kyodo A fire broke out again early Wednesday at the troubled No. 4 reactor of the quake-hit Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant, Tokyo Electric Power Co. said. Around 5:45 a.m., a worker at the plant saw flames on the fourth floor of the reactor's building, believed to be the same spot where an apparent hydrogen explosion caused a fire Tuesday morning in the wake of last Friday's magnitude 9.0 earthquake. The plant operator said it has reported the incident to firefighters and local governments. On Tuesday, the utility said water in a pool storing spent nuclear fuel rods at the reactor may be boiling and its level has dropped, exposing the rods, prompting the government to order Tokyo Electric to inject water into the pool ''as soon as possible to avert a major nuclear disaster.'' Unless the spent fuel rods are cooled down, they could be damaged and emit radioactive substances.

This is an interesting Wikileaks document on the safety of Japan's nuclear power plants.




An official from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said in December 2008 that safety rules were out of date and strong earthquakes would pose a "serious problem" for nuclear power stations. The Japanese government pledged to upgrade safety at all of its nuclear plants, but will now face inevitable questions over whether it did enough. While it responded to the warnings by building an emergency response centre at the Fukushima plant, it was only designed to withstand magnitude 7.0 tremors. Friday's devastating earthquake was a magnitude 9.0 shock. The news is likely to put further pressure on Japan's Prime Minister, Naoto Kan, who has been criticised for "dithering" over the country's response to the ongoing crisis at the Fukushima nuclear power plant.

Japanese tv news just stated that Fukushima city 50 kilometers to the northwest of the nuclear plant has current readings of 18 microsieverts. I'm not sure if these are nearing dangerous levels. Anyone know?

Thank you. It sounds like they are at dangerous levels in that city (pop. 294,000), since they are measuring 18 mSv per hour in Fukushima.
