Ten Anime Series You Should See Before You Die First off I’d just like to say a huge thank you to everyone that read my list of ten anime films you should see before you die—the response has been phenomenal—not just the number of people who read it, but also those who took the time out to get involved in the following discussion. Some people loved my selections, some people thought I was well off the mark, but it was clear that there was no way I was going to be able to avoid putting together another list, this time of TV series. It has been a far harder list to compile. Not only because of the vast selection to choose from, but also because I knew from the start that I would be leaving out some shows that a lot of people hold very dear. As such, I hope that at least some of you will read the next paragraph first before scrolling down the list to see what is missing and getting upset.

Cesium levels hit tens of billions of becquerels at river mouth Researchers have sounded the alarm over river water containing cesium levels at tens of billions of becquerels a day flowing into the sea near Fukushima Prefecture, site of the crippled nuclear power plant. A joint study by Kyoto University and the University of Tsukuba, among other entities, estimated that water at the mouth of the Abukumagawa river running through the prefecture was contaminated with cesium levels of about 50 billion becquerels a day. They called for immediate and continued monitoring of the situation. Fukushima : Alex Borreca, homme en colère Il est en colère contre le nucléaire. Il a branché sa vidéo et le clame, décrivant la situation au Japon. La vidéo fait l’objet d’un grand buzz sur internet. Mais qui est-il ? L’homme affirme qu’il est expatrié à Tokyo depuis 10 ans, ce que certains anglicismes rendent crédible. Sur le site de France24, il se présente comme Alex Borreca, 39 ans, vivant à Tokyo avec sa femme japonaise et sa fille.

Chaîne de GoddardsJournal A defense of the maxim "Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence" using logical semantics, demonstrating how critics of the maxim conflate 'absence of evidence' with 'negative evidence'.

En préambule, vous rappelez que chacun d’entre nous, ou presque, vit à moins de 150 km d’une centrale réputée aussi sûre que l’étaient celles de Tchernobyl ou Fukushima. Y a-t-il un risque d’accident nucléaire en France ? Yves Lenoir. Bien entendu le risque est réel. Une cinquantaine de réacteurs atomiques constitués d'une cuve contenant plus de cent tonnes d'un cocktail d'uranium, de plutonium et de produits de fission radioactifs sont en service dans notre pays.

50 Kick-Ass Websites You Need to Know About It's time to update the entries in your browser's links toolbar. But with recent estimates putting the size of the internet at well more than 100 million distinct websites, it's getting harder and harder to get a handle on all the great stuff that's out there. That's why we've compiled this list. And unlike some lists you may have seen, which try to name the very "best" websites, but end up just telling you a lot of stuff you already know, we've chosen instead to highlight 50 of our favorite sites that fly under most people's radar. Think of it as the Maximum PC blog roll (remember those?). These sites represent great alternatives to popular web destinations like YouTube and Hulu, and include useful references, powerful web apps, and the unknown blogs you must absolutely bookmark.

Fukushima nuclear cleanup could create its own environmental disaster Following the nuclear disaster at Chernobyl 25 years ago, the Soviet government chose long-term evacuation over extensive decontamination; as a result, the plants and animals near Chernobyl inhabit an environment that is both largely devoid of humans and severely contaminated by radioactive fallout. The meltdown last March of three nuclear reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Japan also contaminated large areas of farmland and forests, albeit not as severely or extensively as at Chernobyl. But lacking land for resettlement and facing public outrage over the accident, the Japanese government has chosen a very different path, embarking on a decontamination effort of unprecedented scale. Beginning this month, at least 1,000 sq km of land — much of it forest and farms — will be cleaned up as workers power-spray buildings, scrape soil off fields, and remove fallen leaves and undergrowth from woods near houses. The goal is to make all of Fukushima livable again.

Fil actu Japon Les articles des grands quotidiens nationaux ne seront pas repris ici, sauf exception, il est facile de les trouver sur un moteur de recherche. Histoire d'une propagagande annoncée, suite. Source: Ex- Japon – Crise nucléaire : suivi et veille quotidienne Des explosions d’hydrogènes se sont produites sur plusieurs réacteurs, libérant de fortes doses de radioactivité. D’autres réacteurs semblent être aussi dans une situation critique, notamment les piscines de refroidissements de combustibles, situées sur les toits de chacun des réacteurs. Le Japon est durement éprouvé par ce séisme de grande ampleur, les conséquences pour la population sont terribles. Le Rainbow Warrior, navire étendard de Greenpeace, n’a pas eu l’autorisation des autorités japonaises d’effectuer des mesures de radioactivité dans les eaux territoriales autour de la centrale de Fukushima. Le Japon empêche donc des mesures indépendantes et transparentes sur la contamination marine.

Le blog de Fukushima Kitchen of the Future Kitchen of the Future Energy-saving light bulbs will only take us so far. We need to push ourselves to rethink domestic appliances entirely, to rethink how homes consume energy, and how entire communities can pool resources” says Clive van Heerden, Senior Director of Design-led Innovation at Philips Design. Philips believes the solution is likely to come from biological processes, which are less energy-consuming and non-polluting. We need to go back to nature in order to move forward. Lire en ligne la suite du dossier Censure des autorités, de nouvelles mesures alarmantes Six mois après le début de la catastrophe, le silence des autorités reste étouffant, et les exemples de rétention d’information se multiplient. Des populations en danger exposées à leur insu, au risque de radiation et de contamination Ainsi, les Japonais ont brutalement appris que des indices d’une fusion des cœurs - comme la présence de tellurium- avaient été détectés par les experts dès la journée suivant le tsunami. Les faits n’ayant été révélés que trois mois après, la population n’a pas été informée en temps réel des risques majeurs qu’elle encourait. Les autorités japonaises n’ont pas non plus communiqué les premières mesures de radioactivité, permettant d’observer l’évolution et la dispersion du panache radioactif.
