If nothing changes, I'm off on Tuesday.  Helping a client evaluate the conditions of their facility.  I did TMI, now this.

Good luck there! I'd love to go back to Japan myself (born there), but not necessarily for this reason. I think to see what it looks like there up north firsthand would hit me kind of hard.

I'll be heading to Okinawa Friday (Previous engagement with client) and who knows where after that.  I'm curious to see what develops from this mess, they'll need lots of help and I'm always open to "Exploring new opportunities".  Good luck and take care.

Probably not as much as the US techs are hoping for.  There are qualified technicians who speak the language, can digest the cuisine, will work cheaper, and who are much closer to the problem.

You want to go play superhero and cash in on this disaster?  You better be really tough (body and soul) and have a unique skill set.

What's so hard about Japanese food? My wife is Japanese, and I've NEVER had a problem with ANYTHING she or my In-Laws have ever served. It's not that dreadfully different from what we have in the US actually. Lots of Fish, Veggies, and noodles. Just curious.

Miso causes me a severe digestive blowout.  I have no idea why, and I like the taste.  I guess it is something like lactose intolerance in Africans, I just don't have the right enzymes to digest it.

Doing a bit of ELT math and working backwards using the earlier numbers out of Hanford, I'm pretty sure the units are Bq/m3.

Going back through the hosting website, and watching the animated GIFs for current dispersion, Hawaii doesn't look like a fun place to go for this spring break  Angry

I also was in Eniwetok when Three Mile Island and China detonated the nuke in the storm. So we love our environmental air samplers.

Returned on Tuesday evening.  First of all I want to make it clear, though I may have done a lot of surveying, I wasn't there chasing dollars.  I went with a small team to assist a company in Japan with no nuclear experience.  To say the radiological conditions are challenging (from a US perspective) would be an understatement. Earthquake damage was quite apparent in the north and tremors (6.5 the highest) were also experienced.  The Japanese we interacted with were very nice and thankful we were there.  If you even consider working in Japan the following tidbits might be helpful, you have to pass a test to drive there or at least rent one.  It is used to see if you can read Japanese road sign (I can't). Not a lot of Japanese speak English or hide the fact that they do.  Living would not be close to the reactors.  Not a commute I would consider.

I'll post some more when I get caught up here.
