Ten years after Fukushima, Japan remembers 'man-made' nuclear disaster
"Japan then caused a nuclear power plant in Fukushima to go into meltdown. It was a traumatizing event, one that left the Japanese public and the world wanting guarantees that a nuclear disaster like that would never happen again. But can Japan make that promise? Some of Japan's most prominent earthquake, experts say. Not really the world's Patrick win has more. Okumura. Koji is a paleo seismologist. That means he studies earthquakes, old earthquakes that may have shaken the earth. When wooly mammoths were still around. It's like archaeology off course Quake. Archaeology of earthquakes. Sounds really nish on Lee. It's not. It's actually a matter of life and death because if they fault erupted even 10,000 years ago, that's a sign that it might erupt again in our lifetime, and you really shouldn't build a nuclear reactor anywhere near it. Because this could happen. In 2011 tsunami created by an undersea earthquake that squeaking noise, those air buildings crumbling in a torrent of water. And at the Fukushima nuclear plant. Waves pounded the power plant, causing a meltdown. It happened on March 11 and Japanese people still call it 3 11 shorthand for catastrophe now, Okumura. He is one of the top earthquake experts in Japan. And before 3 11. He was on a government safety panel as a caveat. He wants to say this. Nobody knew and nobody could have predicted kid. What he means is no one could have predicted this earthquake at this specific time. But Okumura and a few others were warning the nuclear industry that some of their reactors were sitting on potentially shaky ground. In those days, nuclear companies were almost regulating themselves. But after 3 11, Japan started over what they knew nuclear watchdog agency one with an unofficial motto, the new nuclear regulatory regime in Japan must be the world's strictest, which tracks with an acknowledgement that seismic risk in Japan is among the world's worst. Drew Richard is an author whose new book, Every Human Intention follows Scientists struggling to figure out how to prevent another Fukushima because that's what people want to hear. Alice that this will never happen again. Okamura, the seismologist says. That's almost an impossible request. We cannot tell when underwear a big Oscar eco cars, he can tell you this, like it or not. No nuclear problem. These profit pretty save Every nuclear power plant, he says, comes with risk, especially in Japan. Here's the deal. Japan just doesn't have much oil or gas. So starting in the 19 sixties, with lots of American help, it went heavy on nuclear to power, one of the world's biggest economies. And they did this. Knowing Japan as a lot of earthquakes again. Here's Drew Richard nearly all of Japan in nearly all the sites where nuclear reactors are built, our seismically hazardous. It's a nation that faces a level of seismic risk that's almost uniformly comparable to Seismically active areas of California on Lee, California has one nuclear plant. Japan was running 50 Woz after 3 11 that nuclear watchdog shut down all of them. It has since allowed only five to reopen. Watchdog is so strict that even experts who were advising the government before the disaster are effectively not allowed to join. That includes scientists like Okumura, Koji. And others who were warning the government, Okumura says. They just scrap the whole system for them, or the system was useless and I'm used to, and I'm useless to, he says. Other Japanese seismologists, who could join the watchdog agency won't because well, scientists don't want the spotlight the immense political pressure Okumura says. Right now, the agency actually does not have a solid team of earthquake specialist say Don't Tall, you know, professional scientists. Yes, it's a big laws. Drew Richard says. Most earthquake experts agree seismic safety is a real blind spot in a real weak spot for the current regulatory agency. And that's glaring because the Fukushima disaster was a seismic event. That's bad, Richard says. The current top seismic safety regulator isn't really an earthquake expert. He's more of a geologist, so it's a little bit like asking an influential kidney doctor to operate on your heart. Richard says most officials mean well, yet they face a traumatized public. Still looking to scientist for peace of mind the expertise of these earthquakes, scientists has been applied to Ah, fundamentally impossible question that question. Are any of those dozens of reactor sites absolutely safe from earthquakes. And as it turns out on the basis of the limits of human knowledge At this time, the answer is maybe we don't know. At this point half of all Japanese people just don't want nuclear power at all. Nuclear companies are pushing to reopen their reactors, but keep getting denied. Try again, Regulators say, Make it safer. Meanwhile, with most nuclear plants closed, Japan has had to import way more coal, dirty polluting coal warming the whole planet and people aren't happy with that, either. Just listen to these protesters. Follows at US. I'll call, you know, Call Japan. They're chanting, Okamoto says. There are no easy solutions here. He knows the public. Just want scientist to tell them their energy source is safe. What science can never be published again. It's the nature or not. You're Hauser. I admit he also admits that actually, he wants more nuclear plants to open up. That's coming from the scientist who foresaw Lay Fukushima like nuclear nightmare. Look, some of Japan's plans should clearly never open again, He says. They're just too close to fault lines. For others. The odds of another earthquake seem low enough that Japan should take the risk. He says. The country needs power. Yes, I'm afraid people against nuclear power may be hungry after me. Just try not to be too angry at me, Okumura says. He's just a guy who wanted to study prehistoric earthquakes, never imagining that pursuit could affect the fate of his country. And the entire planet. For the world. I'm Patrick Quinn.
Landmark Court Ruling In Japan Holds Government Accountable For 2011 Nuclear Meltdown
"The Japanese government and a nuclear power plant operator have appealed a landmark court ruling. The ruling holds them responsible for the country's worst ever nuclear accident. The 2011 Fukushima meltdown was triggered by a huge earthquake and tsunami. But as NPR's Anthony Koon reports from Seoul plaintiffs are concerned that justice is being delayed once again. Cheering broke out outside the high court in the city of Sendai, about 60 miles north of the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant last month. Too many people surprise the court's ruling held the central government and the Tokyo Electric Power Company, or TEPCO, which runs the plant equally responsible for the accident. Plaintiffs argued that scientists had warned the government in 2000 to that a major tsunami could hit the area. The court said in its caving verdict that the government failed to take actions. She'll sort of Colonel when you go Oh, God. The government. Despite its position is regulator just let TEPCO do Is it pleased and let it put off safety measures? It was gross negligence, and it was an attitude Unbefitting, a regulatory agency. That was Takashi Nakajima, paraphrasing the court's verdict. He's a leader among the nearly 3600 plaintiffs in the case. Sendai Court or did the government and TEPCO to pay them $9.6 million in compensation double with a lower court had ruled three years ago. Many people in Nakajima's community near Fukushima fled their homes. He says he filed the lawsuit. Basically, just to say, Give me back my former life Rising. Ah need. Imagine how you would feel says if suddenly you get into a situation where you can never go back to your hometown because there's a risk of radiation. Nakajima runs a supermarket. He says that fears about radiation and waters near Fukushima make it impossible to sell the local fish in which he used to take such pride even more. Fishermen eat him because they've been eating them for a long time, he says. And they're tasty. But their sons and daughters in law tell them that their grandchildren should not eat them. This is a situation which divides many families. Judges in the Sendai verdict appear to have been especially sympathetic to such hardships. The Osaka, a law professor at Tokyo University in Tokyo, explains hunk. It doesn't mean you can t the Sendai High Court judges actually visited the area and issuing the Trial before the decision was made. It's very unusual that judges truly understand going hardships the victims are experiencing some plaintiffs in similar lawsuits have not been. His fortunate is Nakajima and have lost Professor Masafumi Okamoto, professor of environmental policy at Osaka City University, says the Sendai verdict could change that in, you know, taking any next? Of course, this's the first time a decision recognizing the government's full responsibilities they made at the high court level, he says, although it was partly recognized by a lower court. It's very significant and it'll clearly influence future decisions. That's why many observers were not surprised when the government and TEPCO appealed the verdict on Tuesday. Plaintiff, Takashi Nakajima hopes that the Sendai Court ruling will eventually pave the way for the shutdown of all dangerous nuclear power plants in Japan. But whether or not the ruling stands will now be up to Japan's Supreme Court to decide. Anthony Kun. NPR news soul

"okamoto" Discussed on Famous Failures
"Now. You're welcome to the show. Thank you for having me. I'm so excited to be speaking with you so i'd like to begin with your background because i'm always curious about why people chose the path that they are on so tell us about how you became passionate about providing universal access to menstrual hygiene products i mean i know it's not the most common thing to be passionate about. It's but you know i started my organization after my family. Was you know experience living without a home of our own and during this time i had on my anyway as to and from school had many conversations with homeless men who are in much worse living situations i was in heard their stories of using toilet paper socks on paper grocery bags cardboard cardboard to take care of their periods and got absolutely fascinated by it just kind of like obsessively started googling things up poverty and after learning about the tampon tax really decided that i needed to take action so started a nonprofit and for those who are not familiar with the tampon tax. What is it exactly so it exist in thirty four states now but when i'm starting in two thousand fourteen existed in forty states so it's a sales tax on period products considering not essential goods so like luxury items meanwhile all products like rogaine and viagra are considered such slogans right so it's kind of this unfair tax on period products considering them basically really michelle that menstrual hygiene is considered a luxury and i love to put a pin on that and circle back to that a little bit later about what you've been able to accomplish in terms of the repeal of the tampax and also some of the pushback you experience but i want to circle back and talk to you more about the founding of periods so you were only sixteen years old right when you started the organization. Yes i started on sixteen. So what were some of the challenges you encountered in starting this nonprofit such a young age you know i think a lot of it was like self doubt and when i was experiencing a lot of people like giggling laughing at me when i told them about what i was doing. I think it was a lot of them. Uh-huh kind of giggling at me and doubting me and i had to learn to have my own strength in saying you know i'm not gonna listen to this. I really believe in what i'm doing and you've written about previously about how you experience imposter syndrome from from yeah so tell us more about that like when is it most acute for you and over the years. Have you developed any tactic. Strategy south talk for dealing with it. I think it's more like denial which is not the best. I think it's like okay. I ah boston syndrome. I don't think about it. Just gonna keep keep working. Keep doing things you know. I wanna lifetime achievement award last week and felt like so inadequate for like twenty taste like it's all downhill from here. I guess like you know. I think my sort of solution was like okay. I'm just not going to think about that and just like you know be really thankful for it and i'm just going to keep working and all of that <hes> you know well first of all congratulations on lifetime achievement award this awesome but i do think that is great advice actually to be able to just keep pushing forward the other reaction that you could. I've had to this lifetime achievement award instead of doubting yourself would have been to maybe say oh i'm amazing and then boost inflate your ego which can lead to problems in the long-term him but having a little bit of doubt in the face of the type of success you fat is actually can be a good thing. That's what i want to talk to me about some of the mechanics of like how you actually started this nonprofit again you were sixteen years old. So how did you figure everything out. Honestly i get asked this question like every day. Like how did i start in my honest answers. I don't really know like like i started had no idea what a nonprofit was. I googled. What is a nonprofit. I googled what is the i._r._s. What is the board of directors. What is the form nine. Ninety just ended up like just started filling out forms that you know that came up is just started just doing whatever i thought seemed like the best option and just took it from there same thing with running for office writing a book starting this company. It was just like okay. I don't know the answer. Just gonna go. Look it up. We're gonna try it out and it's going to work or a stock in oregon. If it doesn't work i'm not even thinking about. I'm just gonna try something else in starting and building period. Did you encounter any roadblocks or failures since this show is about failure to hear about that and if there are multiple maybe you can talk to us about one that stands out as being particularly memorable. You know it's interesting because when i got the podcast i started thinking a lot about like failure like what it means to me and like you know. I think that it's such a cliche. All these people always say like you just have to understand that failure failures failure is not an option like it's going to happen and you have to embrace failure love failure and like you hear that from entrepreneurs a lot i am not like that at aw i hate failure terrified of failure but i kind of see it as like failure not being an option or also just seeing when you do failed not seeing it as a failure seeing like okay. What did i learn from this right so i think two examples i think of is like when i was trying to play for college right. I was applying for college and i was really getting for harvard because my family was low income. We had no money for college and i knew the only way to go really to college was to go to a place that had the financial financial aid endowment that would give me an automatic ride in resources to move in. You know it didn't seem like an option to me. Like failure was an option if i wanted to go to college right when people look at me. Connotes failure was running for office and losing but for me when i was reading it was about fighting to win but i wasn't expecting to win so when we didn't win to me it was like you know i see success in the fact that we made national ways with getting young people to office that we broke records with an historic turn out like triple the voter registration for students since and now twenty nine thousand two years later the next election cycle. There's another student running right so i think for me whenever that i never want to fail. I don't want to fail and i think when i pursue things with bigger passion. I'm like i'm just like failure is not something that's going to happen. Benched a very stressful way to live. Maybe well. I think what you're doing and maybe i can tease out to highlights from your answer. Well first of all like you. I think your account or your approach failure is really refreshing in this so so as you said fail fast fail often embrace failure those mantras or older as these as silicone valley but from my perspective and i think from the perspective of probably elite most of the members of the audience failures sucks like it's whoever says they really truly celebrate failure is probably lying to you you to be able to say like yeah failure sucks but do what you did which is to not necessarily sita's failure but maybe learning opportunities so reframing failure as as learning can help take some of the stigma out of it and also like if you learn something from the experience then all was not was not lost so perhaps a mantra. Josh should be not to fail fast but to learn fast. I wanted to come back to the tampon. Tax mentioned put a pin there and i i want to return to it and so oh this is one of the policy initiatives that that you've championed through period. <hes> can you tell us more about that. In the type of impact you've been able to achieve steve in that context and also have you encountered quite a bit of pushback in trying to get this tax repealed. Perhaps you can share some of that pushback with us as well. You know it's hard to say who exactly owns the success of taking out the tampa tax. I would like to hope that a lot of the work we've done to raise awareness in with our chapters has helped like i think that it's been really amazing to see just how many activists are taking action around this all over the country and i just kind of want to put that disclaimer out there as well just because i think that like this movement is so strong because there are so many people involved in in terms of pushback we get a lot of it is purely that people just don't agree that mental health products aren't necessities right and a lot of people especially people in politics. First of all are not menstruating women right like a lot of them are non menstruating system it you know so when we talk about periods they've never thought about this being necessity and have no why did about how to empathize about what it's like to get your period and not have access to period products so a lot of the work we do is simply. Try to raise awareness about this and also push for empathy on like imagine. It's like to not have period products and why it's so necessary that they're made available in. I'd love to dig a little bit deeper into this in terms of concrete strategies. You're using to build build empathy. How do you do that with the legislature. You know a lot of it is by sharing stories and anecdotes from people who experience period poverty a lot of it is is putting into context for that right push them to go talk to their wife their daughter their sister about what it's like right of ask questions and also show them <hes> through studies and whatever else about what truly are the significant impact superior poverty right the fact that forty six percent of low income women in the first citywide wide study on period poverty and saint louis forty six percent had to choose between a meal period products rate and only talk about stories like that bring these stats or that one in five women girls does miss school or work due to not having access to period products that matters and i think when you put it into context in the frame of how this affects gender equality and access to opportunities knees overall they understand and you mentioned period is one of a number of organizations working on repealing the tampon tax. How do you coordinate donate with other groups working on these initiatives. Do you coordinate with them. We definitely do and a lot of it is trying. We're actually launching national campaign next week more on this yes but you know a lot of what we try to do is basically kind of put up the idea that you know we are period is an organization but we really exist to bring more young voices into the menstrual movement and there's so much incredible work in advocacy happening in the metro movement way not to sign cheesy but like we're all stronger together and the importance of all of us needing to unite unite together. I've worked very closely. You know a rather good friends with a lot of the activists in the community we tried to we try to be as coordinated about our efforts as possible well and part of what the the campaign that we're launching next week actually involves building up this public coalition against period party. If people wanna learn about the national campaign is syrup particular websites or another resource that they can go to yeah. I mean we'll put it all across our social media channels that period but so you can definitely find it. They're perfect <unk>. Azam minstrel movement spread across the u._s. and internationally. You became a symbol in the movement one of the symbols of the moment. How have you handled the pressure of being in the spotlight. This kind of makes me just like someone who is in a lot of denial which my mom definitely thinks i am but you know. I think that my honest answer is that i don't. I don't really pay attention to the clout that comes in when articles are published about me or when videos come up. I'll skim them. I'll we'll watch the videos for fact checking shared on social media which is like part of my job rate but i won't think of it as something that is defining myself worth or making me a new person or becoming part of my identity right. I think that i go back to my identity being very much about why i do this work right and i think that with the public spotlight i don't see that as an end they see that as a means to an end like i don't do my work for the press articles but i love press articles articles because it helps us ties periods of getting more people talking about menstruation you know like i think that for me and i see this a lot like with other young activists like sort of losing sight of the <unk> knowing that visibility and press and this public you know public attention. It cannot be your end. It has to be your means tweeden with advocacy because see and i think that i very much remind myself about a lot yeah. That's a really nice way of re framing this because as you know we'll open a world obsessed with likes aches and re tweets and numbers and whatnot and a lot of people have a very difficult time of zooming out from that and not seeing it as an end but as you said the best way to not pay attention to that is to see it as a means to an end so the end is something else in your case. You've clearly defined your why the attention you get is just a means to it which is a very nice way of like zooming out and not being obsessed with with you know how much press coverage you're getting or how many likes your latest post. God on on secret yeah exactly. I want to circle back to you mentioned. You ran for office in cambridge in two thousand seventeen. Let's take a little deeper into that so talks sousse about your thought process. Why did you decide to run lead into it without truly thinking too much about it but you know i got very passion. Asha about housing affordability like clayton simple got to cambridge cambridge with a special place to me because i had sort of grown up in and out of the city with my godparents their and you know got really passionate housing affordability because i was seeing it around the city i would run in explorer on the city find these intersections of sheet where i could see gentrification and it made me so upset because they'd never seen it so visible before and also kind of doing my own research learning about like the incredible correction and income inequality and lack of youth representation shouldn't even though like i think of cambridge's like a college town with harvard m._i._t..

"Have to talk about what everyone is talking about on this Wednesday morning. And that is the news that was broken by T J dillashaw himself, very early this morning at around eight o'clock, a m eastern time he posted this on his Instagram and Twitter to all my fans. I wanted to be the first one to let you know that you sat up and the New York. State Athletic Commission. Have informed me of an adverse finding a test taken for my last flight while words can begin to express. How disappointed I am at this time. Please know that I'm working with my team to understand what has occurred and how to resolve the situation as quickly as possible out of fairness respect to the rest of my division. I've informed you have see that. I'll be voluntarily relinquishing my title while I deal with this matter I want to thank all of you in advance for the support.

They have not said what he has tested positive for and just moments ago. I received this statement from you Sada in light of Mr. dillashaw social media post this morning. We can't confirm that an in competition. Test conducted by you Saad on January eighteenth. Thousand nineteen. So just note. This is my note that was the day before the Henry pseudo fight in Brooklyn, which he lost in just thirty two seconds. The first round resulted this back to the statement resulted in an adverse analytical finding in. This instance, we are able to confirm the finding to Mr. Dilshad public statement. The presumption of innocence under the rules vital part of an effective anti-doping programme ended his only fair that Mr. dillashaw be allowed due process before any conclusions are
Panthers owner David Tepper told reporters that quarterback Cam Newton sitting out the entire 2019 season could be an option
"The other item. I want to get into his Cam Newton. Now, David Tepper Ono for the Carolina Panthers. Basically alluded to Cam Newton maybe possibly having the sit out the next season. Just so they could prioritize getting him one hundred percent healthy. I love Cam Newton. Cam Newton is a star athlete stud athlete. But one could argue Cam Newton. They really learn how to throw the football until the season. When north Turner was his office coordinator because he's complete six sixty seven percent of his passes this year, whereas throughout his first seven years in the National Football League, he never completed better than sixty percent of his passes. And even that was only one time at sixty percent. So I'm not talking about moving off from Cam Newton in terms of all my Lord. He's finished he's done, etc. Etc. I'm talking about a plan b. You know, it was Cam Newton wanted to run the football when he got popped by TJ watts on over eighty I believe it was against Pittsburgh. All right. And he got hitting that show. It wasn't the same sense. An appearance was six two at that time. When all of those things happen to Cam Newton. We saw that. But it was Cam Newton that insisted on running for boy was Cam Newton didn't wanna take the capable of superman. It was Cam Newton had a problem with coach Ron Rivera for wanting to streamline and dissipate. Those running plays for his star quarterback. It was Cam Newton for that. So is the way you wanna play. But the reality is is that. One could argue. They Cam Newton. Just as a great pocket passer. He's never he never has been career. Why? It eight say ESPN, it's inundate seven to nine three seven seven six about a way, you know, what next year? I mean think about the quarterbacks that are going to be mentioned, Nick foles. You don't want him because he's getting a long term deal. He's gonna have his pick of the litter. I'd say go to Jacksonville, you consider it. You got teddy Bridgewater. You got Joe flacco. One year. Gotta get Ryan Fitzpatrick why Fitzpatrick going to Carolina for the year and do damage. That's okay gets back. What? He was looking pretty damn good until cutter decided to put in James Winston. Worth consideration

I'm doing really well. Thanks for doing this Ryan. By the way, when you had your intro before the Mitchell fight, two Fridays ago, they had a little like Star Wars thing in there. Was that the first time that you've done that before? They, they kind of like a little something gonna be account down show. I didn't get to see also getting. Yet. Remember you doing that, so you didn't. You don't even hear the music when you're about to walk out. Well, like they've always in the music. I hear the music. I like the the dog in the beginning, China children that song between the back, whatever, but other, no, they get. We shine a little something. We're in Andhra with the head kind of I dunno. TV behind me when I'm walking out at all. What's fascinating is the fact that you're like the complete antithesis of of Darth Vader rarely, just such like happy guy, you know, kind of nice guy. You know what I mean? Is that why you got the nickname to begin with. Thing. You know, it was kinda from Brooklyn breslin days on this guy called me, and I went to went to another. I went to this call mcgarth also kinda stopped on down there. So what was when you signed up for this tournament? And I hate to to use the word easy, but it does feel like it has been relatively easy for you. Did you think it would go this way like that it would be such a walk in the park for you? I fight, you know, obviously you never go into any fifteen seconds. This punch three and knocking out more than spied Novick. Yet. Heavyweight date day can't towns which putting given to turn the hat winning. The whole thing was a favorite and they're the best, you know, heck weights. And right now you don't go out there and in kicking on, grinding them out. You'll be out of the.

You can, you know, update for big heavy, you heavyweight news in the, I always thought I was going to turn in of Trinite. But yeah, I mean, nobody predicted knockout. I. I was gonna handle that differently on the ground, and that's what I did. And you know, I'm, I'm join us so far considering how well it's going for you indicate, and I'm sure not having to wait cut for the first time in a very long time is a pleasure as well. Is there any chance that you just stay at heavyweight pass the tournament? You know, I don't know. Originally. When is two bucks and drop down the same. They lie. Heavyweight and descend the heavyweight on. You know. But who knows when that actually happens? I go out there and win this. I win this fight. There might be more intriguing matchup at heavyweight or Bill tour might want me to say or miss more sense to take a heavyweight title five. So right now I I want to, I want to different bowl 'cause they fire to me is not that really difficult. At the same time. We'll see when we get there. Like, what do you walk around at. About thirty five right now. Okay. Well, so I mean probably dating back to when you were a kid like the last time you probably didn't have to cut weight, so to speak quote unquote, probably like a decade or two decades ago, right?
