NOW FOR THE NEWS

NHK: Circulation cooling system hits another snag
 http://www3.nhk.or.jp/daily/english/30_30.html
The newly installed reactor-cooling system at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant has suffered another problem, as its water treatment equipment has stopped.

"The system that decontaminates and re-uses radioactive water from the facilities is believed to be the key to the stable cooling of the reactors.

"But Tokyo Electric Power Company, or TEPCO, says the decontamination equipment stopped automatically on Thursday afternoon when the alarm went off.

"TEPCO says the problem turned out to be a malfunction of a gas exhaust on a French-made device that removes radioactive material from the water.

"The utility says the device was undergoing engineering work to prevent gases from flowing backward, when the alarm set off..."



 MAJIA HERE: Arnie Gunderson stated in his recent interview with Dr. Helen Caldicott that he is still concerned about a hydrogen explosion at unit #3 and spent fuel fires or building collapses in units 3 and 4.


There still has been no mention at all of the fire on Sunday. The jet stream is moving north across the US so people in the northern half of the US should watch the radnet data and assume levels are high if their cities are "under review" for any length of time

In other news, NHK is confirming blogger Ex-SKF's report about detectable radiation in Fukushima prefecture children's urine.

In the U.S. the problems continue at Los Alamos and on the Missouri.

E-News is reporting that the Los Alamos fire is within 2 miles of the plutonium waste

Propublica is reporting that nuclear plant inspections have found flaws in disaster readiness. Really?

And a bit of Propaganda from Iowa: Nuclear plants need scrutiny, not hysteria
PERSONALLY, I THINK RECENT EVENTS SHOULD PRODUCE VOCIFEROUS, IF NOT HYSTERICAL, OUTRAGE AND RESISTANCE
