Japan it just gets worse

This was predicted, yet where are the robots?   Big robots, with cameras on them.

Plant radiation monitor says levels immeasurable
A radiation monitor at the troubled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant says workers there are exposed to immeasurable levels of radiation.

The monitor told NHK that no one can enter the plant's No. 1 through 3 reactor buildings because radiation levels are so high that monitoring devices have been rendered useless. He said even levels outside the buildings exceed 100 millisieverts in some places.

Pools and streams of water contaminated by high-level radiation are being found throughout the facility.

The monitor said he takes measurements as soon as he finds water, because he can't determine whether it's contaminated just by looking at it. He said he's very worried about the safety of workers there.

Contaminated water and efforts to remove it have been hampering much-needed work to cool the reactors.

The monitor expressed frustration, likening the situation to looking up a mountain that one has to climb, without having taken a step up.

  1. GOOG looks interesting.

  2. west coast US is getting rain. the jet stream above the west coast looks radioactive on those jet stream maps.

  3. GOOG is one of those stocks I don't look at, just the way it is. I think their business model will eventually be seen as a network marketing ponzi scheme, regardless of their cool maps. Whew...mini rant

  4. Any idea how they make those jet stream maps?

  5. they bought youtube and completely ruined it. way too many ads, now.

  6. Google is an advertising company, nothing more.
