Dairy farmers in Fukushima Prefecture are prohibited from shipping raw milk since
it was found with radioactivity exceeding the legal limit. Kenichi Hasegawa raises
fifty cows on his farm in Iitate village. Everyday he milks the cows only to discard all
the milk. His income is down to zero. But he must still pay 1.7 million yen every month
for feed and electricity for the cow sheds.

Meanwhile in Ibaraki Prefecture, three fishing cooperatives in Oarai Town on Friday
fished six types of marin products at a spot 500 meters offshore prior to resuming
full-scale fishing operations. A lab in Ibaraki Prefecture found that the amount of
radioactive cesium in the catch was below 500 becquerels per kilogram, the legal limit
for marin products. The highest level found was 66 becquerels for sandeels, followed
by 30 becquerels for anchovies and 19 becquerels for clams. Based on the findings,
the cooperatives declared the marin products are safe to eat.

As we reported earlier, contaminated water from the crippled Fukushima Daiichi
nuclear power plant continues to pour into the ocean.
Elevated levels of radioactive materials have been found in young sand lances
caught yesterday off Kitaibaraki city.
Fisheries cooperatives across Ibaraki Pref. decided not to fish for young sand lances
for the time being.
The head of one of the local fishing cooperatives says that what they have
feared has happened.
Young sand lances have been found to be contnaiminated.
Ibraki Prefecture revealed that 526 becquerels of radioactive cesium were
detected per kilogram of the young fish caught the day before.
This is the first time radioactive materials exceeding the permissive limit
have been detected in marine products.
Fisheries cooperatives across Ibaraki Pref. have suspended young sand
lance fishing for the time being.

Meanwhile, water containing hight levels of radioactive substances has been
pouring into the sea from a cracked concrete pit near the Number 2 reactor.
Tokyo Electric Power Company suspected that contaminated water was
seeping into the gravel through cracked pipes, and then flowing into the sea
through the damaged concrete pit.
Today it injected white powder into the gravel to trace the flow of the water.
White water was then confirmed to be coming from the pit.
Following this discovery TEPCO injected 1,500 liters of liquid glass into the gravel.
TEMPCO says the volume of water has dropped.
It plans to inject another 1,500 liters of liquid glass.

Scheduled for tomorrow are gubernatorial elections in twelve prefectures including in
Tokyo and mayoral elections in four big cities. Forty-one local assembly elections will
also be held.
Candidates fielded by the two major parties, the Democrats and the Liberal Democrats,
are facing off in gubernatorial elections in Hokkaido, Tokyo and Mie, and in mayoral
elections in Sapporo and Hiroshima. In the local assembly elections, 2,330 seats are
up for grabs.

How do we build houses is a big challenge to the areas devastated by the March 11th
disaster. Iwate prefecture is considering imposing restrictions on the construction of
new buildings in the areas that are at risk of being washed away by tsunami until
restoration plans are drawn up by the municipalities.

Tatsuro Kumagai, a carpenter in Rikuzentakata City, is currently living in a
prefabricated building he himself built where his house used to stand. Kumagai started
to live in this house five days ago with his family. City officials visited him today and
asked him to voluntarily demolish his new house. Kumagai says all he wants is to
continue to live in a place he's familiar with. He says he's baffled and he doesn't want
to go anywhere else because he is comfortable here.

The Iwate prefectural government is considering imposing legal restrictions on the
construction of new buildings until reconstruction plans are drawn up by the
munisipalities. This measure would be aimed at facilitating recovery while averting the
risk of tsunami. In Iwate only at least 18,000 structures mainly in coastal areas were
completely destroyed. In view of the fall in the surface of the land brought about by
the quake, local authorities fear that if another tsunami should hit these areas that
could be more extensive damage. This is why the prefectural government is
considering curtailing the construction of new buildings in line with the Building
Standards Law.

turning point in the history of Japan. Mikuriya says Most Japanese today do not share

massive earthquake, tsunamis and neclear crisis. He says the impact of this shock is
enormous. He says most Japanese have never experienced the planned power outage.
He says that what seemed to be abundant was actually not, and that from now on

to aim to develop the country in a fair and balanced manner so that no areas would fall
behind, and he says during this time Japan was enjoying economic growth. So various
regions in Japan were expected to develop and grow in the same manner. But he says

suitable for a modern city, he proposed the rebuilding plan after the disaster that
called for a drastic renovation of infrastructure. His plan created the base of the
current form of Tokyo. Mikuriya says he thinks that it was good for Goto to come up

He also says he used to make dicisions on his own at an early stage and he definitly

The front of this movie theatre used to be lit up. But the light has been off since the
disaster. The entertainment industry is no exception taking power saving measures
ahead of the possible electrical shortages this summer. Many shows have been
canceled since the earthquake.

Leading kabuki actor Ichikawa Danjuro thoughts seriously about how he can continue
performing and save energy at the same time. Ichikawa Danjuro says he may not be
able to do much, but he wants to do what he can. So he says he decided to use fewer
lights on stage. He came up with an idea of cutting down stage lighting by 20%.
The stage is so dark that the audience can hardly see Danjuro making a show-up pose.

He decided to perform a historical play about Akechi Mitsuhide who betrayed Oda

Actress Yoshiko Tanaka died of breast cancer at the age of fifty-five in a hospital in
Tokyo yesterday. She was a former member of the famous pop group, the Candies.
The Candies were extremely popular across Japan. Tanaka's nickname was Su-chan.
The news of her death came as a shock to many. This person says she's surprised
and that Tanaka's death is a great pity. Another says he was shocked by her death as
Tanaka was about his age. Tanaka's husband Kazuo Odate supported her during her
fight against breast cancer. Odate says Tanaka committed herself to cancer
treatment with the same sense of pride and responsibility she brought to her work.
He says She was also determined to make a comeback.

Together with Ran Ito and Miki Fujimura, Tanaka made her debut as the Candies in
1973. The group had many hits. Many people liked Tanaka because they felt she was
close to them just like their own little sister. This woman says she adored Tanaka
because she was able to comfort everyone from children to the elderly. Another one
says she liked Tanaka more than the other two group members because she was
sweet, slightly plump, and very attractive even to other women.

In 1978, the Candies disbanded at the peak of their popularity. After the breakup,
Tanaka's career as an actress took off. In the 1989 movie Kuroi-Ame, She stared as
a woman whose life was changed by the atomic bombing of Hiroshima in 1945. The
role earned her a Best Actress Award from the Japan Academy. In an NHK's morning
drama series Chura-san, Tanaka played the heroine's gentle but strong mother.

In another program, she appeared as herself. Asked whether she's ever painted a
picture, Tanaka replies No. She says that's because she thinks she has no talent at it.
TV personality Tsurutaro Kataoka, who taught Tanaka how to make ink drawings on
the program, says he was impressed by her honesty. Kataoka praises Tanaka's
remarkable personality. He says she wasn't at all pretentious and that she intended
to draw exactly what she saw and felt. He says she was a simple person and not the
type who tried to stand out by pushing others aside.

原発 放射線“汚染地図”を作成 ロボット導入も検討
Tokyo Electric Power Company has created a map showing radiation levels at the
Fukushima nuclear plant as part of its efforts to remove radioactive debris. Initial
hydrogen explosions have left radioactive rubble in some areas. The map was created
to help workers locate and remove debris safely from the compound. Tepco has also
decided to use Japanese robots to monitor inside the reactor building. Hydrogen
explosions at the No.1 and No.3 reactors have left debris scattered around some areas
of the compound. The debris is hampering Tepco's efforts to regain full control of the
crippled reactors. The utility has been using remote-controlled bulldozers and power
shovels since April sixth, but to minimize its workers' exposure to radiation the
company needs to know the level of radiaion in the compound. Tepco has created
this map. This Tepco official says the map has been posted at its offices and
distributed to the teams of workers. The map indicates the number of millisieverts
per hour at each location. Radiation levels are still high in the area close to the
No.3 reactor building. This shows that the radiation level at this location is 300
millisieverts per hour.

Tepco needs to measure radiation levels inside the reactor building to meet its
timetable for ending the crisis. So the company has decided to use new monitoring
robots. This robot was originally designed to be used in rescue operations after
disasters, but has been modified for use in the nuclear plant. A dosimeter has been
stored one meter from the ground. A demonstration of the Japanese robot quints
was held today. It can move easily over the debris. It can also go up and down the
stairs. ...... three dimensional images. It can help its controllers understand the
situation even in the dark. The robots can operate in pairs. One cabled robot can
transport radio waves to control the other. They are expected to operate in the
basement to upstairs of the building where remote-controlled robots currently
cannot operate because wireless communication is blocked.

The machines are also immune to the highly contaminated environment. Semi-

director of the institute that developed this robot says he's proud of its mobility and

Preparations are underway for Tepco employees to first train in the Chiba Institution

the regular tournament. He got the impression that in punishing the wrestlers the
association had already decided to hold an irregular tournament like this. He says
wrestlers look tense, apparently sensing that this is not going to be a regular

震災から2ヵ月余り スポーツ界への影響は
More than two months have past since the March 11th desaster. So far nealy twenty
international sports events scheduled to be held in Japan have been canceled or
postponed. They include figure skating, fencing, and tennis. Japanese triathletes are
training in a facility whose lights have been dimmed to save electricity. The athletes
were gearing up for an international competition that was scheduled to be held in
Yokohama this month. But the event was postponed after March 11th.

The triathlon consists of swimming, bicycling and marathon racing. Yokohama has been
one of the venues. Juri Ide says the triathlon is a sport in which the one who does not
give up till the end wins. She says that's why she wanted people to see them. Mariko
Adachi says she's disappointed because she trains so hard.

The event was postponed after the severity of the accident to the Fukushima Daiichi
nuclear plant was raised to Level 7on par with Chernobyl. News that radiation
contaminated waste water was leaking into the ocean made matters worse.

Foreign athletes were terrified and withdrew from the competition. "My parents
particularly weren't quite happy at first when I said, you know, that I wanted to go to
Yokohama. I think that the main problem is a lot of comflicting information ...always
more tempting them to believe the negative than the positive."

Some say the March 11th earthquake marks the end of life in Japan as it used to be.
Here is a sampling of comments from the public. This woman says she wonders

the same boat, they are all the same people, the same nationality. And this woman
says she thinks that relationships between people are very important. More Japanese
People appear to be willing to help others. Today, we take a closer look at the change
in mindset.

So, we interviewed people on the streets of Tokyo and Osaka, and asked about any
psychological change before and after the earthquake. We focused specially on
younger people. They are demonstrating a different outlook which I found to be
encouraging. Young people today have this to say:

This reseacher says someone may have been living in a normal life until the day
before, then suddenly they are no longer able to continue life as he knew it.
Thus you can't take your lifestyles for granted. This non-profitable organization worker
says he doesn't simply want to think all that's so awful from afar, but rather he wants
to actually do somethin for the disaster site. This university student says the
conversations and the smiles might be important for people in the disastered areas.
She says she works part-time in a drugstore and sometimes they run out of items
because of the earthquake. This causes trouble for customers, so she explains why
they run out and the customers tell her that must be hard. So she says that everyone
has a hard time.

It's not bad sometimes to apply vocablaries and sentence structures I learned from those news
contents to my English writing.

...φ(゚∀゚ )
Nothing can extenuate what you did. You cherry-picked from theses of others and it is only plagiarism.

its effect on the human body until noticeable symptoms appear.

I am flabbergasted to see you flabbergasted at the alteration. As is well known, the revised
specifications went open to the public last year, so you could have found the point in question
with adequate attention.

intervene in the market simultaneously. Barkleys Capital Chief Economist Kyohei Morita says
Monetary easing wasn't coupled with market intervention. He says that ironically this reinsures
investors that they can keep on buying the yen.

debt was estimated to reach 1,024 trillion yen by the end of the current fiscal year, topping the
1,000 trillion mark for the first time ever. Sovereign debt has triggered a crisis in Greece, thus
spreading concern in other EU nations. Many of these nations are settled with central or local
government debt reaching over 100 percent of their GDPs. In other words, they are borrowing more
than what their economy is worth.

10: Why is Japan, despite its colossal debt, escaping the type of crisis that is hampering Greece?
Analyst Tetsuya Matsunaga of Mizuho Securities says fiscal sustainability is judged by nation's ability
to raise funds. He says the markets believe Japan still has leeway to raise money by hiking the
consumption tax, whose rate of 5 percent is deemed quite low. He says that's why long-term rates
are stable in Japan.

room for various interpretations.

09: The communication gap between the United States and Japan came to the surface already.

policy. Ambiguous expressions used by Noda only work among those who can tolerate it. The United
States and other countries involved in the TPP negotiations as well as those who oppose to it in
Japan will not accept such vagueness.

37: The technology tempers concrete with seawater. It was considered to be unworkable. The salt
in seawater was thought to be concrete's greatest enemy. Gravel and other particles in concrete
tend to swell when they react with salt. As a result, concrete easily develops cracks and breaks apart.
But after conducting experiment the construcion firm discovered that mixing cement made with
less alkaline components with special agent can control the reaction caused by salt. The company
also found the use of seawater can increase the strength of concrete.

But when using seawater, rust on reinforcing rods becomes a problem. It could happen that as rust
develops the reinforcing rods will swell and the concrete will break apart. Researchere tried to cover
the rods with special resin.

pension programs after quitting their jobs and start paying their own contributions to the nation's
basic pension system. If they fail to change their status, their pension contribution records thereafter
are categorized as not paid. This means they will receive less pension payments for the portions they
missed to pay.

00: Popular rakugo storyteller Tatekawa Danshi has died of throat cancer at the age of 75. He arranged
traditional stories for contemporary audiences. Free spirited life also won the hearts of many people.

01: Danshi's public image was someone who rebelled against convention. But his autobiography reveals
another face. In the book Danshi said he would have dropped out of the society if he had not found
rakugo. He said traditional storytelling saved him. Danshi was born in 1936 in Tokyo's Bunkyo Ward.
When he was 16 he became an apprentice of rakugo performer Yanagiya Kosan V. He became a master
at the age of 27 and assumed the stage name Tatekawa Danshi. He started to appear on TV early on
his career. He was the first MC of Shoten, a long-running TV program featuring rakugo performance.

Danshi's specialty was classical rakugo stories. He was considered a leading storyteller along with
Kokontei Shincho and two others. But Danshi left the association of rakugo performers in 1983 because
he opposed the group's promotion system and established his own troop.

04: Danshi's remarks and actions sometimes caused commotion. But his main focus was rakugo, which it
describes is an art that tolerates all sorts of emotions and actions.

03: People in Okinawa have had to live with a bilateral agreement on the status of U.S. forces in
Japan. It was revealed today that Japan and the United States have agreed to punch a hole in this
long-standing wall. Foreign Minister Koichiro Genba says this has been important progress in the
crminal sphere of the Satus-of-Forces Agreement, adding that Japan will exercise jurisdiction over
traffic accidents caused by American civilians associated with U.S. military bases in Japan while they
are on duty.

27: News of a rare phenomenon discovered by a high school girl in Ibaraki Prefecture was carried in
at an America's science Journal. The student just stumbled upon the phenomenon during her
ordinary daily routine. The reporter was in Mito City, Ibaraki Prefecture. The group of students at a
prefectural high school say they made the discovery by chance.

00: Chief Cabinet Secretary Osamu Fujimura made the following remarks at the news conference
this morning. He says it's true that there is an urgent issue regarding the activities of the Imperial
Family. And what was he referring to as an urgent issue? Currently the Imperial Family consists of
the Emperor and 22 family members. 15 of them or about two thirds are women. Fujimura says
female members of the Imperial Family are approaching the marrying age.

So what concerns does this situation pause? The Imperial succession is stipulated in the Imperial
Household Law. Article 12 says female members of the Imperial Family abandon their status when they
marry someone other than the Emperor or members of the Imperial Family.

If female members of the Imperial Family leave the Imperial household by marriage one after another,
It may not be possible to maintain the current level of activity.

05: Fujimura says the debate must take into account the various opinions of the Japanese people of
different backgrounds. He says he is aware the government cannot afford to leave the issue untouched
but neither should it hold a hasty debate. He feels now is not the time to say whether it will take
certain number of months or years.

44: It's 11:28 a.m., the time that the sun rises to the highest point in Tokyo this time of the year.
But it seems the sunlight is not coming from directly above. It's coming from an angle. Famous
tenth to eleventh century Japanese poet Seishonagon wrote the dusk is the best time in autumn.

How do people see autume these days? This man says each day sun that shines into his house
recedes little by little. This is it seems like the sun inches across the tatami mats. This woman says
she feels more rush just as the days get shorter. She feels like she must go home in a hurry, cook
dinner in a hurry and go to bed right away.

There is a reason why people feel the days are getting quite short around this time of the year.
Here is the hours of sunrise and sunset in Tokyo. Today the sun sets at 4:30 p.m., which is earlier
than on the winter solstice when the day is the shortest. The sun sets earlier from late November to
mid-Dicember than in midwinter.

Why does this happen? The sun is supposed to be the highest at noon if the earth's axis is not tilted.
However, the axis on which the earth rotates that connects the north and the south pole is slunted
and the earth's orbit around the sun is not a circle but an oval. Because of this, the sun comes to the
highest spot in the sky a little before noon at this season. On the midwinter day the sun rises later
than now but it also reaches the highest point later. This is why the sun sets earlier at this time of
the year than around midwinter.

07: Do you have any idea what tamakon, saikon and abikon mean? They are versions of gokon,
a group which is dating or partying that have been set up in Tokyo's Tama City, Saitama City and
Chiba's Abiko City. Gokon on this scale are called Machikon, meaning town dating or partying
because they involve people in the entire town and have become fairly popular among young people.

17: Nishimoto was called a great manager with bad luck. That's because he never managed to lead
his team to claim the Japan Series title. One game that many people remember is the final game
between Kintetsu and Hiroshima in the Japan Series in 1979. In the ninth inning Kintetsu had a
chance to turn the game around with the bases loaded with one out. Sticking to his principle of
staying on the offensive, Nishimoto signaled batter Shigeru Ishiwatari to go for squeeze. Hiroshima
pitcher Yutaka Enatsu sensed the move and deliberately threw a high pitch. So Nishimoto's Kintetsu
blew the opportunity to become Japan's No.1 team.

00: Hashimoto has been calling for strong leadership. In June he described it as a dictatorship.
Hashimoto says the most important thing in politics today is dictatorship. He says the thing that is
demanded most of Japanese politics now is enough authority to be called a dictator. Hashimoto's
supporters passed out flyers. The incoming mayor has gained the approval of over 100 members of
the local assembly who joined his party Osaka Ishinno Kai.

05: Hashimoto's approach to promote reforms often considered high-anded and he draws wide range
of opinion. Hashimoto says he's set on achieving the goal of Osaka becoming a metropolis.
Hashimoto's plan for Osaka as a metropolis will not be easy to achieve since it will entail changes for
the relevant laws. Memeber of both the Democratic Party and the Liberal Democratic Party are
unwilling to move forward hastily to revise the laws. Hashimoto says at least fifty lawmakers are
needed to submit a bill to the Diet. He says if his group cannot get enough lawmakers to support his
Osaka metropolis plan by the end of March, his political party Oska Ishinno Kai may have to feed its
own candidates for Diet seats.

key issue was whether to extend the Kyoto Protocol, which expires at the end of next year. The
protocol has major problems. China has no obligation to reduce greenhouse gas emissions even
though it is the largest emiter of such gasses in the world. And the United States, which is the
second largest emitter, is not even taking part in the framework. Japan, the European Union and
other countries required to reduce emissions together account for only 26 percent of the global

16: In the midst of deflation, there is a strong opposition against increasing the consumption tax rate
because it may badly affect the economy. Why does the gavernment want to implement a tax hike?
Perhaps they have sense of crisis. They feel they have to do it before it becomes too late. Japan is
experiencing an unprecedented speed of aging. Its social security spending is growing year by year.
And they cannot continue covering it with deficit-covering bonds. And the European financial crisis
may lower the rating of Japanese national bonds. So they are engaged in a sort of a hand-to-mouth
operation. They want to relax the tension of such an operation.

22: This is live footage of full moon in Shibuya, Tokyo. Four hours from now, the moon will past
behind the earth, so the earth blocks the sun's rays from striking the moon. A total eclipse of the
moon could be seen in some areas last year and earlier this year. But for the first time in eleven
years people will be able to see the entire sequence of the lunar eclipse from anywhere in Japan.
Conditions are likely to be very good this evening for observing the eclipse.

Eleven years ago a total eclipse could be seen in many places across Japan. The eclipse occurs only
when the sun, earth and moon are lined exactly with the earth in the middle. The dark moon can be
seen slightly colored by solar rays reflected in the earth's atmosphere.

This chart shows the timing of the lunar eclipse tonight. The National Astronomical Observatory says
the eclipse will begin at 9:45p.m. The moon will be covered by the earth's shadow for about 50 minutes
from 11:05 to 11:58p.m. The darkness and color will be determined by atmospheric conditions at that
time. Then the moon will move out from the earth's shadow and become a full moon again shorly
after 1a.m. People will be able to see the total eclipse in any place in the country.

14: Ken Shimizu, a student at university in Tokyo, for example, got two transplanted front teeth
after losing their originals in a snowboarding accident two years ago. The year before the accident,
he had back teeth removed to make room for braces. The molars were then frozen to preserve them.
Those back teeth were later transplanted to replace the two that went lost. Shimizu can now eat
normally again.

15: Here is how it works. Between teeth and their sockets is a tissue called the periodontal membrane
which has a spring-like function. Before freezing, a removed tooth with the membrane attached is
soaked in a preservative. The tooth is then stored in a special refrigerator at the temperature of
minus 140 degrees Celsius to keep the tissues alive. The frozen tooth will be available for transplants
if necessary. Researchers say the process revives the membrane which enables the patient to have
the same sense as before when the upper and lower teeth come into contact.

12: In addition to the disposal of radioactive debris, many municipalities are also struggling with an
increasing amout of radioactive ash from incinerated garbage. It's been about a half year since this
problem first arose, but the central government still hasn't come up with any effective measures
to resolve the issue. The amout of ash is increasing by the day.

13: The issue of radioactive ash from incinerated residential garbage came to light in June this year
at an incineration plant in Tokyo's Edogawa Ward. If radiation levels are high, the ward is not allowed to
dispose incinerated ash at a landfill site. According to guidelines issued by the Environment Ministry
at the end of August, if the radiation level is more than 8,000 becquerels but below 100,000 becquerels
per kilo, the ash can be buried after being fixed in concrete. But Matsudo City doesn't have a facility
to fix redioacitive ash in concrete. It can't do anything but store the ash.

They say the "THREAD TATESUGI" limit was raised upward, though I don't understand much about it.
I know I can create threads as many as I want by buying "●"(an authorized tool for creating
new threads and viewing past ones), but it is a waste of money only to make live threads.
Thank you for a quick response. Good night!

13: Some companies have already started taking steps to make full use of old employees. This is a
temp staff agency in Tokyo. Most of the forty employees at Tokyo headquarters are over sixty years
old. This person says he's marketing development manager. Another person says he also has the
same title. Asked what the titles are, they all say they are division managers. Everyone at the
headquarters says the title of divisional manager. This person says he's comfortable with his job as he
has the same title as before retirement. He says it's nice to have a title on his namecard. Another
person says it makes business easier if he visits his clients with the namecard with a title rather
than without one. The employees all receive the same basis salary but the company tries to boost
their incentive with bonuses that reward business results.

32: The oyster season has arrived. But this winter is an unusual year for producers and consumers
alike. Most farming rafts were swept away along the coast of Miyagi and Iwate, major producers of
oysters. Oyster shipments plummeted to about 10% of a normal year. Another major oyster producer,
Hiroshima, is taking steps to make up for the shortfall. Hiroshima is anxious to help its rival producers
on the Sanriku Coast.

31: Many people attempted to flee coastal areas when tsunami warnings were issued at the time of
the March earthquake. But there's evidence that railroad crossings along the coastal regions
prevented people from fleeing.

33: Why did the gate remain closed? Railroad crossings are programed to close automatically when
detecting approaching trains. But when there is a power failure and the system becomes unable to
detect trains, emergency power activates, closing down most gates for safety reasons.

34: The JR Joban Line runs across Tsurishi district along the coastal region when the biggest damage
from tsunami was reported. The then designated shelter was a building adjacent to the city office.
But in order to get there, people needed to cross the railroad.

30: But experts say just wearing a mask is not enough. One doctor says people need to change the
way they behave when they sneeze. It's not enought just to cover you mouth with your hand. When
you do that, the virus just escapes between your fingers and spreads out. And there are large
amounts of the virus still on your hand. Professor Intetsu Kobayashi of Toyo University Medical
Departoment demonstrates. He says that if people use an item of clothing they can stop all of the
virus when they sneeze. He says that's one example of good manners that people should observe.
But what'll that virus be on the out of the clothing? Kobayashi says the germs will be on the clothing,
but the clothes are less likely to come into contact with places that other people touch.

13: Fresh revelations shine more light on Olympus's cover-up of over 100 billion yen in investment
losses. People close to the company's management say that former security firm employees were
paid about 15 billion yen in commissions and rewards for teaching the management accounting tricks.
Tokyo Procecuters are preparing to search the offices of those implicated.

It has been revealed that the cover-up losses are over 100 billion yen. Olympus's former auditor
Hideo Yamada and vice president Hisashi Mori helped defer the posting of investment losses from
1998. The sources say that three former security firm employees taught the Olympus executives
how to defer posting losses. The three are said to have advised Yamada and other Olympus executives
to set up funds abroad to accept investment losses. Those three men also took part in covering up
the losses. Two of them brokered Olympus's acquisition of a British company. They raised 63.2 billion
yen disguised as commissions. The other suggested padding the cost of acquiring three firms in Japan
in order to raise 71.6 billion yen. The funds were used to make up the losses incurred by Olympus.

18: To address the safety concerned, the tower's owner announced measures to reduce the amount of
snow and ice falling from the tower. Panel heaters have been installed inside the walls of the observation
deck to melt the ice. Aluminium boards have been installed on the roof of the observation deck to
contain falling snow and ice. Twenty cameras have been installed to monitor the snow. When there is
a chance that snow may fall from the tower, the owner will fax the information to local schools and
neighborhood associations. The company will also send security guards to warn people. The tower's
operator promised local neighborhood associations that it will assume responsibility for injuries or damage
caused by the falling ice.

03: Former Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi held talks with Kim Jong-il in 2002 and 2004 on the
abduction and other issues. Koizumi says he was disappointed as he'd been hoping the missile issue
and other problems could be resolved while Kim was still the contry's leader and paved the way for
normalizing bilateral deplomatic ties.

11: There were increased reports on his movements as if to give the impression that he was well.
Radio Press which analyses reports from North Korea says North Korean media reported on Kim's
activities a record 161 times last year. This year visits he made of factories, military units and other
locations were reported on 157 occasions. The most recent occasion was last Thursday. The
announcer quotes Kim Jong-il as saying that efforts should be made to make sure essential items
should reach every citizen. He was shown visiting a supermarket in Pyongyang along with his successor
Kim Jong-un. Not long after that, report he died suddenly. The announcer says he experienced a
severe heart attack while traveling by train and died at 8:30am.

71: Sugiuchi says that frankly speaking it was not easy to finalize the decision, but he feels good now
that he's made up his mind. Sugiuchi has decided to put on the Giants uniform. Sugiuchi says in a

stronger team. He says he wasted no time, saying yes to the honorary manager.

55: Swimmers who wore high-tech rubber gear developed by a British maker marked unbelievably fast
times. In Beijin these swimmers grabbed one gold medal after another. In an international swimming
competition that followed the next year, 43 new world records were set. The International Swimming
Federation took notice of the fact that the swimsuits had a huge impact on the athletes' performance.
The federation said new standards for makers developing swimwear. "Definitely, the material will
constitute only by textile fabric." The new models must be made from woven fabric and can reach only
as high as the knees. Makers faced an uphill struggle.

This maker came up with three types of swimming gear. Some parts of the fabric are woven tight to
another parts and different patterns have been developed to cater the different styles of swimming.
Another maker uses two different kinds of fabrics. One is more elastic than the other. The tighter
fabric is used on the back side. The idea behind this is it will help the athlete's kick with more force
because the stretched fabric of the back will try to return to its former shape. This designer says
developing new gear under the strict rules was by no means easy. He says without doubt all the
swimmers will face difficulty in clocking fast times.

09: This is not the first time the DPJ government had to renegue on a pledge in the election
manifesto. In 2009 the party said it would abolish the temporary tax on gasoline. Then Prime Minister
Yukio Hatoyama says the government decided to maintain the current tax rate. He says he has to
apologize for keeping the tax instead abolishing it. The Democrats also promised to pay families
26,000 yen per month for each child up to fifteen years of age. The plan is to be withdrawn before
that full amount ever being paid. The manifesto also said the DPJ will eliminate all expressway tolls.
No expenditures to achieve this goal will be included in next year's budget. And now, the Yamba Dam.

35: On December 24th, 2008, popular TV personallity Ai Iijima was found dead in her apartment. But
her blog site still lives on. Though Iijima is no longer able to update her blog, her fans who sympathize
have visited the site everyday and commented over the last three years. They posted total of 67,500
comments. The world is full of cheers in happiness on Christmas Eve. But three years ago, a woman
was found dead, alone in her room in central Tokyo on the night before Christmas.

TV personality Ai Iijima had been dead for about a week when her body was discovered. Iijima had been
posting entries on her blog until about ten days before her death. She used to write candidly about her
everday life. In the last three years the site has seen increased number of comments by women who
write notes as if they are talking to Iijima in person. The total number of comments is close to 68,000.
This person says she's found a lover and asks Iijima to cheer for her love affair. This person says she
cannot but come to the site because she wants to see Iijima.

Why are so many women still attracted to Ai Iijim even though She is passed away. Some write that
they have trouble withing their personal relationships at work. Others say they stressed out bringing
up children. Here's others confess they are anxious because they cannot find a job. We wrote to a
hundred and seventy people, asking them to give us an interview, but few people replied. One of the few
who wrote back said the blog is a place where she can be her true self.

18: For the last fifty years, the most common cause of death of children aged between one and
fourteen years of age has been freak accidents. Many of these deaths occurred when children fell
off apartment buildings or into swimming pools, or swallowed toys. What can be done to prevent
these kinds of accidents? Doctors have started to address the issue.

Today as part of the effort to unravel the causes of children's deaths, doctors issued or rather
discussed the issue in a meeting held by the Japan Pediatrics Society. Pediatrician Tatsuhiro Yamanaka
took part in the meeting. He's long been looking for ways to prevent children frombeing involved in
freak accidents. But he's always been frustrated. He says there is little information about the root
causes of deaths. Here in Japan, doctors' death certificates must include information about the cause
of death as well as the situation in which the person died. Doctors are allowed to enter up to four items
to describe the cause of death in a certificate.

55: Major League Baseball: Nippon Ham Pitcher Yu Darvish and many other Japanese players are
aimed to join the Major Leagues next season. But Japanese fielders are not as well recognized as
pitchers. Why?

"Ha, ha, ha, ha! Year, who wouldn't love to have Yu Darvish, right?" "Well. I like him. Ah, big, strong
hard thrower. That's gonna be an expensive deal right there." Pitcher Yu Darvish is at the center
of baseball news in Japan and the United States. The Texas Rangers who paid for bid 51.7 million
dollars won the right to negotiate with him. According to the U.S. media reports, its cost to obtain
Darvish including a multibillion contract will be 125 million dollars, or 10 billion yen. Another Japanese
Pitcher, SoftBank's Takeshi Wada who won more than ten games two seasons in a row signed a
contract with the Baltimore Orioles. His two-year contract is reportedly worth 630 million yen, almost
as same as what he earned with SoftBank.

Fielders, especially infielders in the Major Leagues are expected to have outstanding fielding capabilities.

But he signed a two-year contract for 1.1 billion yen for his strong fielding performance.

13: The death of the North Korean leader is of the utmost importance from a security prospective
because it could potentially lead to social instability in the North's military action and in exodus of
refugees. But a serious lapse has been revealed in the information gathering and response capabilities
of the Prime Minister's office. According to media reports, Kim died two days before the
announcement. But the rest of the world had been kept in the dark. Asked if he had prior knowledge,
the South Korean Defence Minister says he found out through news reports. A lawmaker says how is
the government going to handle the Korean Peninsula situation with no analytical ability whatsoever.

And in Japan, the Chief Cabinet Secretary says the information was confirmed through the spceial
noon broadcast of Korean Central Television. But there had actually been a clue to the announcement.
North Korean state-run TV had announced two hours beforehand that there would be a spcial
broadcast at noon. Had the Prime Minister's office been made aware of this. The government gave an

an ordinary day to people in Tohoku hit by the March 11th disaster. People offered a moment's
silence for disaster victims in the ceremony to mark their last business day. Employees of Naraha
Town, Fukushima Prefecture, wrapped up their business for the year at the makeshift office of the
relocation site. Most of the town is in the evacuation zone around the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear
Plant. The Deputy Town Mayor says he feels frustrated in powerless for a while due to the slow

player in men's golf. Sugihara was diagnosed with cancer when he was 60, but refused an operation
and battled cancer through chemotherapy.

19: Elderly people tend to suffer heat shock due to sudden changes in blood pressure while taking
a hot bath. In the worst case, this results in death. About 3,500 elderly people are believed to die
from heat shock each year. So what measure should be taken to prevent this from happening?

Doctor Ryutaro Takahashi is being engaged in researching activities for elderly people to maintain
their health. He recently visited an old woman to check the bathroom of her house in Tokyo.
Doctor Takahashi says the floor tiles make people feel cold. He also says fresh air goes into the
bathroom through the window, so temperatures do not rise so quickly. Taking a hot bath is the time
most people feel relaxed. But bathing carries high risks for elderly people.

Their blood pressure goes up when they take off clothes in a cold room before the hot bath. Blood
vessels expand while soaking in a tub, pushing blood pressure back down. Sudden changes in blood
pressure impose a heavy burden on a heart, causing a state of shock. This is called heat shock and
can result in death. So how can the heat shock be avoided?

One measure Doctor Takahashi recommends is running a hot shower to warm up the bathroom before
taking a bath. He says it's important to raise the temperature in the bathroom. For example, by running
hot water from a shower to fill the room with steam. He also reccomends setting up a heater in the
changing room to reduce the difference in temperature between the dressingroom and the bathroom.

calendar. Let's see how people across Japan celebrated this new year.

It's the first sunrise of 2012. Poeple boarded a ship in Miyako City, Iwate Prefecture, to view the
first sunrise of the year. The area was devastated by the March 11th earthquake. This woman says
the sun has given her and others a lot of energy and strength to rebuild their communities. She says
she hopes to stay strong.

happiness for everyone in the family. This man says he prayed for peace and relaxing life. His wife says
they hope the future will be even brighter.

This is the beach in Numazu City, Shizuoka Prefecture, overlooking Mt. Fuji. Each year on New Year's
Day the city stages the polar bear swim. This woman says she feels lucky to have such a good start
to the year. This is the only sento, or public bathhouse, in the quake-stricken Ishinomaki City, Miyagi
Prefecture. The bathhouse was seriously damaged by tsunami and remained closed for the rest of the
year. The volunteers pitched in to repair the building, and it finally reopened today. This guest says it's
such a nice gift to have the public bath back. This man says their community will soon be as lively as it
once was.

In Rikuzentakata City, Iwate Prefecture, Tsutomo Oikawa received the special New Year's greeting card.
One greeting card in particular stood out. It was from his wife Setsu. Oikawa reads the message aloud:
"Thank you so much for everything you do and have done for the family. Please take good care of
yourself and stay healthy. Your wife." Setsu lost many of her relatives to the March 11th disaster.
She wasn't planning to send any greeting this year, but she decided to write just one card for her husband.

573 :Communists caused the Japan-China War and Pacific War:2012/05/26(土) 09:22:42.23
Communists caused the Greater East Asia War (the Japan-China War + Pacific War).

The Japanese "militarism" from 1930s to 1945 was the socialization with the Imperial
Army system and was "the communism revolution from the top".
The then Japanese politics and media were taken over secretly by communism.
At first we must criticize socialism (communism) that became the basis of the Greater
East Asia War.
The true purpose of the Greater East Asia War was a revolution to the communist states
in Japan and East Asia countries.
Asia became independent from European and American colonial rule as a by-product of
the Greater East Asia War.

574 :[New cold war] Comintern reconsideration [communism crime]:2012/05/26(土) 09:27:27.72
Comintern [abbreviation of communist international]

Founder Vladimir Lenin [The Russian Communist Party(Bol'sheviki)]
Founded March 2, 1919

The Comintern aimed at the world revolution by the violence and started the Communist Party
in each country. They justified terrorism, a riot, murder, the crime for revolutions.
The Comintern was "General Staff Office of the world revolution".

Lenin and Stalin led the Comintern and aimed at the world rule by the Russian communism.
In Japan, GRU spy Sorge, Comintern member Hotsumi Ozaki acted seretly.
-Mantetsu Chousa Bu (Iron research department of Manchurian railroad)
-Kikakuin (a plan House)
-Showa Kenkyuu Kai (meeting for the study of the Showa era)
In U.S.A., the Comintern penetrated around F.D.R. (President Roosevelt).
The United States and Japan were forced war on by plots of the Icebreaker theory,
the World Revolution, revolution by violence of Lenin.
And Japan faced the crisis of the defeat revolution.

575 :The risk and similarity of the Japan-U.S. Democratic Party:2012/05/26(土) 09:34:44.65
Similarity and the risk of the Japan-U.S. Democratic Party (the left-winger Administration)

Contents of the manifesto of the radicals gathering around Obama (Glenn Beck 07 28 10)

Japan and the American Democratic Party are the left wing, and there is the common risk.

The current political situation is similar to before World War II.
Japan before World War II was ruled over by a left-winger, and they were dressed in a
nationalist under the pretense of "reformists = Kakushin-Ha".

"Anti-communism" is the most important for the current crisis.
An enemy is Russia, China, North Korea, Iran, left-wingers.

3.- It is not difficult to prove, because the most of these names are now PUBLIC; you will be able to see
False complaints against Toyota // Falsas quejas en contra de Toyota
how more than half of the complaints were made by S.Korean people in the US.
If we take the huge Anti Japanese brainwashing in S.Korea into consideration and how corrupt is the government and hyundai,
I'm pretty sure,
hyundai (the first car maker to appear on tv bashing Toyota) is behind those complaints.
And now, check the serious defects of HYUNDAI, by its government.
Now, sad to see the last bad results of a decent, humble, reliable, honest and GOOD car maker (Toyota) because of third parties,
because of dishonest, dirty people.
The worst is, those S.Koreans (not the whole S.Korean population at all) are involving good S.Korean people.
