Let the sparks fly and the verbal games begin.
lending rate in India increase to unheard of 14.25%
That would be more relevant in one of the two threads recently started about BoE and ECB rate decisions dont you think.
Sparks are not just "detected" ... they don't magically come into existance*. Tyler's pessimism is well founded.
* Well, they sort of magically do when you are looking at the quantum world... right? Those "sparks" would be so small that I think TEPCO would be over reacting if that were the case. :)
You can't start a fireYou can't start a fire without a sparkThis gun's for hireeven if we're just dancing in the dark
"According to TEPCO this is no cause for alarm"
"According to TEPCO this is no cause for alarm"
I am constantly amazed by the cool, level-headed response(s) from TEPCO. Nothing phases them. These guys are rock-solid, werd!
LOL, cool hand Tepco, its Monty Python's Black Ninja
They are worried the sparks might ignite the Hydrogen gas that isn't being generated by the cold core of the reactor which has been in shutdown since the cooling system stopped working. So as long as there's no big explosion the meltdown can proceed without anyone noticing.
a meltdown at a seconf physical location would not only devastate the Japanese economy, but would most likely collapse the world economy as well. It's tough to relocate an entire country.
"restored back to normal" -- The new normal over there isn't so great.
In other normal news, TEPCO reports it is unable to inject nitrogen at Fukushima Daiichi Unit 3, radiation too high to go in and find out why. The nitrogen suppresses the hydrogen production that causes those explosions.
Also, the owner of a shut-down reactor in another prefecture has admitted to....'normally'...requesting that fraudlent letters of support for restarting the reactor be sent by employees, relatives and contractor firms. As a result the local authorities have withdrawn their approval to restart that reactor. The CEO admitted responsibility and....'normally'...indicated he has no plans to take any consequences or step down.
Utility admits to dishonest e-mails on restart
It has come to light that the operator of the Genkai nuclear power plant had requested its staff and affiliates to send e-mails supporting the restart of the reactors to a meeting to explain the government's safety measures.
On June 26th, the government held a meeting in Saga City to answer questions from residents in preparation for the resumption of the operation of the nuclear reactors.
The meeting was shown live by a cable TV station and via the Internet, and viewers were invited to send in their opinions by e-mail or fax.
On Wednesday, Kyushu Electric Power Company President Toshio Manabe revealed that 4 days before the meeting, its head office instructed some company members and 4 affiliated firms to send in e-mails expressing support for restarting the reactors.
Manabe offered an apology, saying that his company's action undermined the credibility of the meeting.
He said he does not know how many e-mails were sent.
Manabe also said the company hoped to help deepen residents' understanding by stating its opinion as the plant operator.
He said he is responsible for the inappropriate act, but added that he is not considering stepping down as president.
Industry minister Banri Kaieda issued a statement saying it is outrageous to do such a thing and the incident undermines the aim of the meeting.

Sparks, smoke, cracks, no big deal. Now n-beams would be a cause for concern. Carry on.
I vaguely recall reading some document on the internet in the late 1990's
where Aliens talked about being from our distant future and something
about a massive FUKUSHIMUP in Japan that killed lots.
Course, that document was a fraud produced by the illuminati
to make you think the future of earth is for the survivors
of the apocolypse to genetically re-engineer themselves
into angry sexless grey aliens with a lust for cow tongues,
udders, and vajayjays when the truth is that Christ will
return and establish an anti-capitalist, anti-fascist
planet ruled by 144,000 Supernatural Mystical Humans that
will last for many many thousands of years.
During that time the Kogi and the Hopi and many
other peoples and cultures will once again enjoy
a planet in which the purpose of life is spiritual
self discovery and psychic evolution to the higher
realms, as it was meant to be.
The ILLuminati think they can tell a different story
and if enough people beleive it the egregore will
manifest some different destiny because
'we create the future'. as if some thought
you had was not predicted from the first
moment, as if every thought and particle
informing was not pre understood from the
beginning. Free will exists from the personal
perspective, but exists not from the perspective
of the whole. Many physicists have noted this
and been unamused by it.
not good at all.
