Another earthquake a couple minutes ago in Japan... 6.3. 

Are these still considered "aftershocks"?

i wonder how much and how many it will cost to stop the spewing reactors

and do they intend to start rebuilding before they figure out how they will stop said spewing reactors

seems wasteful to rebuild a potential wasteland....yet somehow bullish

Ghosn Visits Quake-Hit Nissan Plant, Vows Quick Recovery photo TOKYO (Nikkei)--While visiting an earthquake-stricken Nissan Motor Co. (7201) plant in Iwaki, Fukushima Prefecture, Tuesday, CEO Carlos Ghosn dismissed concerns that the automaker might permanently close the facility, and instead vowed to use every possible means to rebuild it.

Govt May Ask Farmers To Delay Rice Planting Amid Radiation Scare

The agricultural ministry is considering asking farmers in Fukushima and some other prefectures to delay rice planting for a few weeks amid growing concerns about radiation leaks from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant crippled by the devastating earthquake and tsunami earlier this month, officials said.

The delay would give the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries time to examine whether rice paddies are too contaminated with radioactive substances to allow cultivation, the officials said.

...The ministry intends to compensate affected farmers if necessary, the officials said.

'ECB overnight lending spiked again for second day, with borrowings totaling €3.13B v €3.39B prior as markets await the result of Ireland’s stress tests later this week'

Stress tests. You must be kidding...

That one's easy, they broke.

The U.S. Treasury Dept. has announced that it will publically grade mortgage providers on response quality to homeowners that need payment reductions.

I guess we've given up on grading mortgage providers by how well they manage risk.  This ought to help kick "the recovery" into high gear...

"The U.S. Treasury Dept. has announced that it will publically grade mortgage providers on response quality to homeowners that need payment reductions."

How about grading our president and congressman on how well they represent the interests of average citizens, how well they follow the constitution and how well they tell the truth.

It seems there might be a chance of a bigger aftershock coming to Japan very soon (1-2 weeks?)  (M>7) , from the  current clustering of 4 M>6 quakes in last 5 days.
