Neversink,

What could I say other than glad to hear you are well and too bad this has happened.

Write when you can,

Ard

Thanks everyone!

Now it's Day 5 and international community in Tokyo has calmed down a lot.
Nuclear power plant trouble have done more damage in psychology than in physical reality. There have been rumors of "get out of Japan now" spread from French embassy and from guys paniced after watching CNN's coverage ealier. We formed small groups to bust the myth and those who have participated meant great help to keep nation's capital sane.

Japan is always 0.07% of Earth's land mass with 15% of her volcanos.
Japan doesn't have much natural resource and nuclear power is the only
effective solution now (hope there is something better).
So, we've lived with these things all this time. We need little time and hard working people to remedy the situation so that we can get on quick recovery and growth which we are really good at.

Some investors have ditched us, but they are missing the bigger picture.
Construction stocks are top selling and this disaster did not effect the core industrial capacity at all.

US Operation "Tomodachi" (means friendship) is making great success.
US troops are already helping so much on logistics and rescue operation.
My deepest respect go to them, their family, and American tax payers who support them. Again, thank you very much!

BTW, Tsunami hit some of very good salmon/trout/chart waters in Tohoku.
Let's hope we'll be able to go back there in joy soon.
That we should be worried about

Thumbs up Re: Fly Fisherman in Japan Earthquake

Many thanks for the 'thumb's up.' I've read too many stories where 'Murika' was pasted up as the Bad Boy. "The ugly American," if you remember the book.

American generosity has always been the first to 'get up, suit up, and show up.' For which we get darned little credit.

"You call, we haul."

Minor rant over.

For better understading of geography of heavy disaster area in North East Japan (or Tohoku region).
Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant is located about 240km north east of Tokyo with 2 states and mountaints in between.
*Number of casualties are out dated. There will be sum of more than 20,000 as police said earlier.

US air base of Misawa is located bit north of Hachinohe (furtherst mark on map on north).

Measurement for radiation exposure measured by SV (Sievert):

1 SV = 1,000 mili SV = 1,000,000 micro SV

A) It takes 1 SV to cause 5% fatility.
B) 0.1 or 100 mili SV is the allowence for 1 working session of nuclear powerplant workers.
C) Round trip between Tokyo and New York will give you 200 micro SV exposure.
D) Average person is exposed to 2,400 micro SV in one year.
E) CT Scan is 6,900 micro SV

Last night, reading at Tokyo was 0.1 micro SV and at Tochigi, state next of Fukushima, was 0.5 micro SV.

Current status in region near Tokyo is ABSOLUTELY nothing to worry about.
NRC has announced the same about US Pacific coast.

Please tell investors to do the math before they chiken out.

I heard today radiation levels were 8 times more than you should get in 1 year and that more explosions and fires are happening at the daiichi plant reactor number 4.

Thank you for posting that. There are news people here, and I use the term in the loosest sense of the word attempting to make it sound like the world will come to an end from radiation. The policy with some of them is to "never let a good crisis go to waste". Most of what they are saying about the reactors is not only wrong but not possible from a technical standpoint. Like the fallout nonsense. It's getting to the point where it's making me to mad to watch it.

I'm glad to hear you are OK. As an American I am embarrased by our stupid dishonest press, starting with CNN. It's a shame that you have to take time to correct them and set the story straight.

Take care and good luck.

Thanks again guys for staying with us.
(It's still shaking as I type this, which we sort of got used to

There are great amount of criticism and pessimism. From NY Times telling GE's design was too risky to CNN or French government emphasizing "danger" or "get out" message. As a matter of fact, 2 of my American friends left main island. When it's not your own country, I respect their decision for precautionally evacuation.

But I'd like the world to focus on the most important thing.
There are heroes formed from elite US Navy to nearly retired nuclear power worker (not Homer Simpson) fighting hard to save Japan.
Together, they saved 27,000 survivors and they are working even harder
saving the nation of this planet.

In the North where things are pretty bad, there are children lost their parents. Parents lost their children. Wives lost thier husbands. But they are still strong holding on each other when food is short, bed is cold, and news are bad.

They need help. We need heroes. Heroes need us.

1. Operation Tomodachi Update

2 x C-130, presumably full of US Marines, successfully landed hard on devastated Sendai Airport Marines will clear off debris and establish strong supply outpost there.

Yamagata Airport, other side of Tohoku unharmed, is now open for shared operation for US and Japanese troops. Another group of Marines are coming from Okinawa to establish even stronger supply chain.

US Seventh Fleet, with flagship Ronald Reagan, continues supporting helicopter operations for rescue and supply operations.


2. Inland Comboy Route Update

2 highways reaching disaster areas in the north are now open for comboys with pass from local legislature. This now opens route to send 2nd wave supply such as education material, computers, or any relief goods.

Not enough operatives present on the disaster area, so government has sent secretary of volunteer works first to help establish outposts.
