There is on-going fission occurring at the site
About the measurement of Xenon at reactor 2,Tepco downplayed it with their word game.
According to their explanation,it was a temporary spontaneous fission,which can be observed even at a stopped reactor,and it was not from Uranium,but from Curium.
If Tepco says so,maybe it wasn’t.
Today Dr.C.Busby sent me his analysis.
The activity ratio of 0.85 reported by TEPCO can only result from an enriched
Uranium fission having occurred about 50 hours before the samples were measured.
or an explosive criticality which occurred 60 hours before the measurements. What
these results confirm is that there is on-going fission occurring at the site.

On 5 Nov 2011, I measured radiation in front of a junior high school (Koriyama Daisan junior high school) in Koriyama city, Fukushima pref. Japan.
The monitorinig place is 60 km from Fukushima Nuclear power plant. The monitor indicates 0.83 micro Sievert per hour in air at chest hight, 21.44 on the sand ground level, road side.
(radioactive.eu.com) webmasters comment:
Again, the ratio between above ground measurments and ground level measurments fits my previous observations. 21.44/ 0.83 = 25.83… (* trying to figure out the correlations between radiation 1m above ground and ground level contamination. Figures indicate that you can simply multiply 1m above ground with factor 24x (on average) and you get ground contamination figures. Of course its not accurate, but it gives a good general picture)
Radiation in Japan: NHK Calls 20 Millisieverts/Year Radiation “Low Level”, and Hosono Lies
In October, NHK did a program where the meals prepared in different households in different locations in Japan, including two in Fukushima Prefecture were analyzed for radiation. Surprise, surprise, the meals in a family in Koriyama City, Fukushima contained zero radioactive materials while other families in other locations had a small amount of radioactive materials in their meals. (NHK actually said “zero”, instead of “below detection limit”.) Well, the caveat was that the researcher’s equipment (germanium semiconductor detector) to analyze the radiation turned out to be broken, and NHK had to take down the test result page from the website. (If you read Japanese, the sorry story is related here, for example.)
But the program had been aired already, and probably it has convinced quite a few mothers not to worry about radiation any more when they go shopping for food for the families. NHK says so, it’s safe! I feel so bad for having avoided Fukushima produce!
NHK just did it again, a bit more subtle way this time, in the news on November 5 regarding the new government initiative to study the effect of “low-level” radiation. For NHK, a public broadcaster, “low-level” radiation means 20 millisieverts per year for non-radiation workers because the politician said so. To say it in a different way, NHK is saying the annual radiation exposure limit for radiation workers before the Fukushima I Nuke Plant accident is now the “low-level” for the general public.

Minister of Nuclear disaster ,Hosono stated,they will make a researching team to study “low” dose symptom.
They raised the max limit of annual exposure in Japan from 1mSv to 20mSv.
However,nobody knows what it means.
There is no reliable scientific data to show how 20mSv/y affects our human body.

Disaster survivors move into 3-story housing
People who lost their homes in the March 11th tsunami have begun moving into 3-story temporary housing in Miyagi Prefecture.
The 6 housing structures for 144 households have been built in a baseball ground in Onagawa Town, where flat sites are scarce. Local government officials say this is the first 3-story temporary housing in the country.
On Sunday, people began moving into the new housing, which was built by combining steel shipping and storage containers. Each unit has wide windows that admit sunlight to spacious rooms.
A woman in her 40s says that she is happy to finally have a home for her family after spending months in a shelter.

Japan’s new crisis: radioactive waste disposal
Japan has made big strides toward stabilizing its tsunami-crippled nuclear plant but is now facing another crisis—what to do with all the radioactive waste the disaster created.
Goshi Hosono, the country’s nuclear crisis minister, says that Japan has yet to come up with a comprehensive plan for how to dispose of the irradiated waste that has been accumulating since the March 11 earthquake and tsunami.
Hosono gave the assessment after the government announced an 900 billion yen allocation to help the cash-strapped plant operator cover the massive cost of recovery without collapsing. Officials have rejected criticism that the allocation is a bail-out—stressing that the money comes from a joint fund of plant operators, with a government contribution in zero-interest bonds that must be paid back.
Officials say that the plant has been restored to a relatively stable condition and is leaking far less radiation than it did in the early days of crisis. They hope to achieve a cold shutdown—with each reactor’s temperature below 100 C—by the end of the year.
But Hosono, in a response to a question from AP, acknowledged Friday that the crisis has spawned a huge amount of irradiated waste that will require new technology and creative methods to dispose of safely.
“We still don’t have a full picture of how to deal with the waste,” he said. “It would require research and development that may take years. For instance, we still need to develop technology to compress the volume of the huge amounts of waste that we cannot move around.”
Japan could be stuck with up to 45 million cubic meters of radioactive waste in Fukushima and neighboring prefectures, according to the environment ministry.
Hosono said Japan is not considering shipping out the waste for overseas processing.
