It means other then the 4 sources above that allow full quotes of articles, any others you can only use one or two paragraphs (sentences if the full article is only one-two paragraphs) (fair use) and link to article.

Japanese media now discussing the sudden elevation of radiation readings at the plant to milli sieverts... 1000 times higher than the prior numbers of micro sieverts...

Kan says readings at the reactors ranged between 100 and 400 milli sieverts...

Equivalent amounts:

Increase in lifetime dose to most heavily exposed people living near Chernobyl 430

Causes radiation sickness (when absorbed in a short period) >1,000

Dose from a single full-body computed tomography (CT) scan 45

When delivered in a single dose, increases the risk of developing cancer by 1% 100

Average dose to person living within 10 miles of Three-Mile Island (TMI) caused by the accident of 28 March 1979 0.08

Most heavily exposed person (a fisherman) near TMI <1.0

Japan Prime Minister Naoto Kan delivered a message to the nation at 11.15h,

and ask residents around 20km to 30km from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant,

to stay home and to avoid possible radiation.

I was advised the other day that, if appropriate, it was OK to full quote the Japanese media reports...

so they keep spent fuel rods in water tanks on top of the containment structures? Sounds odd. I pictured spent fuel rods were normally kept at ground level water basins.

Imagine if one or more of China's or Korea's many nuclear facilities were breached - prevailing winds (west to east) would likely carry the radioactivity over Japan. Similarly, if one of the proposed Thai N plants were to leak, the radiation would likely go in the direction of Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Brunei, Malaysia, and possibly Philippines and southern China, HK and Taiwan. Who says it couldn't happen? Just a month ago, nuclear experts would have told you that Japanese N plants were among the safest in the world - virtually fail-safe. Would anyone familiar with Thai safety & security standards expect Thai N plants to be near as safe as Japanese plants? About once a month, an armory blows up or a bunch of weapons & ammo gets stolen from a Thai military facility. The same military that would be charged with providing security for a Thai N plant.

just a better understanding and a better support, could I still pulling translated news line from Japanese www.asahi.com ?

The next thing to consider here...is what will be the dispersion of those high levels of radiation at the plant...

If 400 milli sievert at the plant... what's it going to be in the miles spreading out from the plant...

And if the prior radiation could impact, at low levels, the USS Ronald Reagan sailing far off the coast, what's the latest emissions going to do?

No word yet on any readings in surrounding areas of the plant.. I haven't seen anything even saying if they have any nearby monitoring stations -- other than the pre-established ones at the boundary of the plant.

By the way, for background, there are SIX total reactors at the Daiichi Plant... -- 3 that were operating at the time of the quake, and 3 that were "down" for scheduled maintainance...

The problems up until today were all at the active reactors 1 to 3... Now that's spread with the fire to the No. 4 reactor...which wasn't generating power....

There's still the No. 5 and 6 reactors at the Daichi Plant, plus four other reactors at the Daini Plant 10 Km away that also are having lesser cooling problems.

I hate to be a pessimist... but... since the start of this.. nothing good has been happening with the reactor situation... It's all been a slow downward spiral... :ph34r:

I am pretty sure that fair use means that you can quote 3 paragraphs and then provide a link to the rest of the article.

Fair use allows you to quote *part* of a work (and not a substantial part) for the purposes of criticism, study etc. Copying material for the purpose of 'republishing news' is not fair use. Attribution should be given.
