#1 Maybe I heard it wrong...

CNN AM > gave me the impression that TEPCO = JAPAN needs roughly three months just to effec lower the radiation to safe levels, then another six months afterwards to cap Fukushima Reax 1-4, THEN NINE MONTHS ADDITIONAL AFTER THE AFORE 3 + 6 MONTHS TO COMPLETELY SHUTDOWN THE PLANT.

IIUC, the new CNN Math is 3 + 6 Months = actually 18 MONTHS???

PRESUMING THAT NOTHING BAD HAPPENS ANEW IN THE INTERIM.

The bad news also for TEPCO + Tokyo is that neither CNN nor even FX believe the nine months only timeline will be enuff.

#3 "...while hundreds of thousands of others are still missing."

I hadn't noticed that being reported anywhere else. Hundreds of thousands is a lot of people.

#4 NHK's summary
Nearly 28,000 people are dead or missing in the March 11th quake and tsunami in northeastern Japan

The National Police Agency says that as of 3PM Monday, 13,858 people have been confirmed dead, including those who were killed in aftershocks on April 7th and 11th.

14,030 are listed as missing. The police agency says, however, that the number does not include people missing in Sendai City, the capital of Miyagi Prefecture, as authorities are checking for any overlapping reports.

#6 Wife is from the orient and even trying to translate correctly I often notice her being off some magnitude of 10. It's common enough among her friends too that I think the the oriental press should change their reporting to use scientific notation ... ie 1.925 x 10 to the n...

#7 CHINESE MILITARY FORUM > JAPANESE TOLD BY GOVT. TO EAT [safe?]RADIOACTIVE VEGETABLES | PLEASE EAT FUKUSHIMA VEGGIES, JAPAN TELLS RADIATION-WEARY NATION.

PCorrect Top Govt. Leaders + other Tokyo Diet/Parliament-critters = Nippon Politicos rushing to be first in line to sample.

Yokay, I'll say it - D *** NG IT, IFF AMERICA = AMERIKA IS WONDERING WHY OUR FUTURE DESCENDANTS LOOK LIKE "GREY" + "BLUE" SPACE ALIENS FROM ROSWELL, WELL WONDER NO MORE!

#8 Japan's ranking in the TOP-TIER = TOP FIVE OF MAJOR WORLD ECONOMIES, + also its very sovereignty + national existence, is at risk as a consequence of the TOHOKU/SENDAI EVENT INCLUD THE [Multi-Region affecting]FUKUSHIMA CRISIS.

Perhaps a little good news for Nippon -not much but a little ...

* PEOPLE'S DAILY FORUM [post-Tohoku/Sendai Event]> PLA ANNOUNCES "END TO WAR" [MilPol = Geopol hostility] BETWEEN MAINLAND CHINA + JAPAN.

Pragmatically, why should Beijing argue wid BFF Russia over strategic access thru the Russ-controlled, now Russ-sovereign SOUTH KURILS = FORMER PRE-WW2/1945 JAPANESE "NORTHERN TERRITORIES" iff it can get seriously Econ, Enviro, + Geopol troubled Japan on China's side.

AIR-NAVAL PORTS + BASE RIGHTS IN MAINLAND JAPAN + OKINAWA [ancient "Ryukyu Kingdom" Chin vassal state], Daoyus = Senkakus, perhaps even SINO-JAPAN-US TRILATERAL COOP ON TAIWAN???

MSM-NET = CHINA HAS THE $$$ NOW, NOT THE USA.
