I can see a future FoxNews or FoxBusiness “pundit” now… ”What does Japan know about affects of the atom anyway?”

A&E backed down on their suspension of Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson, putting themselves behind Robertson’s twisted views of blacks in the Jim Crow-era South, his very misinformed understanding of world history and world religions, and his homophobic religious beliefs about gays. It’s a happy happy happy day in the Robertson house.
Elsewhere, where folks have a more respectful view of the world and those with whom they share it, not so much.

Fukushima Update and other science news (Na3Cl?!?)
|By: Jeff Kaye Monday October 21, 2013 7:10 pm|
The Google Alert notified me a few days ago that, according to The Japan Times, a 54-year-old Japanese man, Takehiko Hirasawa, died alone and unheralded in Suginami Ward, Tokyo. Cause of death is unknown. When the crime that obsessed him most of his adult life occurred, he had not yet been born. He was not yet the son of two fathers. He was not yet the head of the Society to Save Sadamichi Hirasawa.
He was no one any of you were likely to have heard of.

The U.S. pretends to be pursuing noble causes for peace in threatening to launch military strikes against Syria for supposed chemical warfare attacks.

It reeks of self-interest, and involved the U.S. in a cover-up of the largest, most sinister program of biological and chemical experimentation and warfare in modern history.

The nuclear crisis that just won’t end has taken a dangerous turn as Japanese authorities admit radiation levels around Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant are 18 times higher than previously thought. The Fukushima nuclear crisis is becoming a case study in mismanagement as both the meltdown and continual confusion are a result of failures of communication.

Japan’s Nuclear Regulatory Authority has admitted, despite earlier obfuscations, that it can no longer contain radioactive waste from the troubled Fukushima nuclear power plant.

Voters handed the architects of Japan’s bold new economic policy a sweeping electoral victory over the weekend, delivering 76 of the 121 open parliamentary seats to the Liberal Democratic Party and its coalition partner.
The result should boost the so-called Abenomics platform championed by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe — a mix of coordinated government spending, central bank stimulus and structural economic reforms designed to push up prices and end 15 years of deflation.

In America a dollar today is worth much less than a dollar in 1980. Americans marvel at how much cheaper things used to be in the past, when Coca-Cola and movies only cost five cents.
In Japan the story is quite different. For long periods in the past two decades, nominal prices have in fact declined.
