In a new report using estimated spread of highly toxic and radioactive particles has been reported in a new study. Looking at an area close to the Fukushima nuclear power plant disaster zone throws some light on a previously ignored aspect of possible health effects.

Highlights

The distribution of Cs-rich microparticles emitted from the FDNPP is determined.

Cs-rich microparticles account for a significant fraction of FDNPP-deposited Cs.

The timing and source of the Cs-rich microparticle formation has been estimated.

Street Artist 281_Antinuke Uses Art for His Message

Fukushima 311 Watchdogs

“I feel immense pain, and my art is how I scream.” This man uses street art to remind people that Fukushima’s nuclear disaster is far from over.

An Interview with 281_Anti Nuke

October 1, 2013

The stickers went up a few months after Japan’s triple disaster in 2011—an earthquake and tsunami that took twenty thousand lives, and an ongoing nuclear crisis that threatens more. They first appeared along the shabby backstreets of Shibuya, in downtown Tokyo, a place that offers some of the very few canvasses for graffiti in a city not given to celebrating street art. The British expat photographer and filmmaker Adrian Storey couldn’t ignore them. “Being a foreigner, there was a sort of brief period after 3/11 when there was this sense of community in Tokyo that I haven’t felt before,” Storey says. “Then it kind of went away, and people just went back to shopping.

Labelled a nuclear ”newcomer” the Saudi Kingdom is pushing to arm itself with new technologies, the Institute for Science and International Security (ISIS) said.

The Washington DC-based group wrote since nuclear action was scaled back in Iran, it has increased in the Saudi kingdom.

Iran signed a landmark nuclear deal with world powers including the US, the UK, France and Russia in 2015.

Huge economic sanctions on Iran were lifted as a result of it restricting its sensitive nuclear activities.

The deal limited Iran’s sensitive nuclear program and subjected it to greater international monitoring.

But in nearby Said Arabia, a new threat is growing, it is claimed.

The organisation which monitors global proliferation issues (ISIS) said: “Saudi Arabia is in the early stages of nuclear development.

Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings Inc. is aiming to integrate its nuclear and power transmission and distribution businesses with other utilities to free up funds to use in dealing with the aftermath of the Fukushima disaster.

According to TEPCO’s revised business turnaround plan announced Wednesday, the company will establish a consortium with other utilities to quickly facilitate its reorganization and integration plan.

The utility’s first major revision to the business turnaround plan since its formulation in January 2014 follows Japan’s industry ministry doubling its estimated total cost of the nuclear disaster cleanup to an estimated 22 trillion yen ($197 billion).

Once it finishes the overall revision, possibly in April, TEPCO intends to obtain government approval for the plan.

Under the revised plan, TEPCO is aiming to boost management efficiency and increase productivity to free up funds, and it will decide whether to postpone…
