As usual I would strongly recommend you to stay away from Japanese food products for safety’s sake. For the ones among you fond of sushi, if you eat sushi in a restaurant please make sure that they are using a non Japanese origin nori wrapping for their sushi, if you make your own sushi at home you better use non Japanese nori, Korean or Taiwanese…
Green laver, known as aonori (アオノリ; 青海苔) in Japan and parae (파래) in Korean, is a type of edible green seaweed, including species from the genera Monostroma and Enteromorpha. It is commercially cultivated in some bay areas in Japan, Korea, and Taiwan.
R.I.P. Ryan Dale Smith. My respects for all what you did. You were quite exceptional. I do relate to your heart always loyal to the working class.
Ryan Smith passed away last month. The West Virginia native had lived in Japan since 2008 and, under the tongue-in-cheek moniker Jon Doe, documented various aspects of Japanese social movements through videos he posted on YouTube.
According to his Japan Times obituary, Smith left behind a wife and young daughter. The passionately political Tozen Union member described himself on Facebook as “a man trying to make it in this world without going crazy in the process”.
While we never actually met, I had seen Smith at least once at a rally, standing at the back and filming the proceedings as he provided impromptu narration. In lieu of a proper tribute, then, I wanted to draw attention to his YouTube channel, which I hope will stay online. In addition to more personal video blogs, such as his touching response to becoming a father, the channel contains a large number…

Interview following NEIS’ “The End of the Nuclear Age: Where are the People?” event with Arnie Gundersen and Norma Field at DePaul University. Dr. Field speaks of her solidarity work with Japanese effected by the Fukushima disaster. When the government failed to prosecute anyone in its aftermath, a peoples campaign formed to demand accountability. She speaks of that and the tradition of protest against government and nuclear power specifically. She refers to some largely unknown but shared experiences in American and Japanese society.

“Sea of Miracles”
Case in point about history of protest. Link above to a short documentary about a Japanese fishing village that has for 30 years been protesting the building of a nuclear power plant that would destroy the Bay it depends on for its livelihood and culture. Having stopped the nuclear power plant twice the community was recently notified that…

“A baby that has no head is a baby that has no head.” – a different approach to the question of radiation and birth deformities, How do you find out if low levels of ionising radiation cause birth defects and genetic abnormalities? by Noel Wauchope, 23/10/12
The usual approach is to look at causes – at radiation as a cause. Scientists measure radiation levels in an area, and study or predict health results. Studies on small animal life in Chernobyl and Fukushima, have indicated genetic damage due to radiation.
Many reports have described birth defects linking them to radiation affected areas – Fallujah in Iraq, Chernobyl 2010 Paul Zimmerman http://www.globalresearch.ca/uranium-weapons-low-level-radiation-and-deformed-babies/16726 , 2009 Video and article http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/nov/13/falluja-cancer-children-birth-defects
But, as the nuclear lobby loves to remind us – a link is not a proof And the World Health Organisation has remained silent on these matters. Why? Since 1959, an agreement signed…

One of Christina’s many memes 🙂
For all our followers here on nuclear-news.net, I would like to present you with two interviews from our authors.
Firstly, here is a recent and rare audio podcast with Christina MacPhearson (AKA Noel Wauchomp), our blog founder. In the podcast she mentions how she started her activism and progressed onto blogging nuclear information. She also discusses the situation in her home Australia, Fukushima as well as a range of other topics.

While I am doing this post i thought to add an interview with 2 co authors of the blog for any new subs. Herve Courtois who has been covering much of the Fukushima news here on nuclear-news.net. I (Shaun McGee aka arclight2011) will add an information packed podcast interview that I did with Herve here;
