    These translations are frustrating.

    However, no doubt anti nuclear advocates are surveiled.

    Radiation contamination found in dust from vacuum cleaners and children’s urine
    December 27, 2011
    Association pour le Controle de la Radioactivite dans l’Ouest (ACRO)
    Press Release
    December 15, 2001

    All the dust from vacuum cleaners are contaminated
    ACRO has analysed dust of vacuum cleaners from 13 dwellings. Excepted Osaka, chosen as a reference because it is located 600 km from the plant, all dust samples are contaminated with cesium 137 and 134 following the catastrophe of Fukushima.

    The evacuation criteria set by the Japanese government are solely based on soil contamination on the outside and implicitly assume that once at home, residents of contaminated areas no longer run any risk. Our study shows that it is not the case. It seems important to make systematic measurements in homes and to consider these risks in managing the disaster.

    Urines of the children are still contaminated
    ACRO has also continued to analyse the urine of children at the request of Japanese citizens. Even if there is not 100% of the urine contaminated in Fukushima prefecture, which is good news, many children continue to be contaminated at levels that do not decrease from the levels we measured in May.

    Some of these children live in homes where we controlled the dust from the vacuum cleaner. But it does not seem to be any clear correlation between the contamination of dust and urine. This leads us to point the finger to the food as the main contributor to the internal contamination.

      All vacuum cleaners are not created the same.

      Some bypass and or stir up about as much dust as they trap, thus creating even MORE airborne hazards.

      Variables are:

      Suction pressure/attachments: variations in the available suction of the unit itself and/or from the business end of the chosen attachments

      Efficiency of filtration media: Actual rated efficiency varies by manufacturer and means of mounting with seals.

      Leakage from pressurized portion of vacuum cleaner: how precisely the vacuum cleaner is manufactured and assembled and/or abused in use will affect the volume and location of leakage.

      Direction and velocity of the filtered exhaust: the vacuum cleaner’s exhaust may be perfectly 99.9% HEPA filtered to .2 micron, but if the exhaust is of sufficient velocity, it WILL stir up particulates in the space.

      (Cleanroom microcircuit manufacture experience: before those jobs went to China and Japan)

        How much training do you have on radiation detection?

        Should we on the west coast of US try avoid vacuuming?

        thanks

          Zero radiation monitoring experience and I’m not certain just how fine a HEPA filter is necessary. I’m thinking .2 micron (normal bacteria is .22 micron so it would stop bacteria which might concentrate the radiation.

          I would believe vacuuming is a MUST, but avoid stirring up particulates as the particulate dust just may have hot particles in it.

          Sweeping floors, brushing furniture, feather dusting, only tends to cause smaller “settled” particles to become airborne where, of course we get to INHALE them.

          It is also best to keep your home slightly more pressured than outside by bringing in HEPA filtered air from outside via a ducted fan/filter unit. Keeping the home slightly pressured keeps “leaks” happening towards outside, and away from inhabitants.

        • Vacuuming is much better than sweeping, but unless you’ve got a well-filtered high-end Kirby or something, you might be better off removing rugs and damp-mopping bare floors daily instead. Best option is a water-filtered vacuum (like a shop-vac with a water well to trap the dust/dirt before exhaust). I had a Rainbow once, and it was truly a marvel. I could turn it on in the middle of a room and it would filter the entire air every few minutes to remove dust and pollen and such. Made noise, but worked great when Mom or my sis visited, they had bad asthma.

          Limiting pet in-and-outs (and wet-wiping their feet when they come in), keeping ‘outdoor’ shoes only for outdoors, meticulous surface cleaning, rinsing kitchen utensils and plates and cookware before using, rinsing food can lids… the methodology is fairly simple. Dust (seen or unseen, assume it’s there and dangerous) is your enemy. And whatever you do, do NOT sleep on or within a foot of the floor. A lot of concentrated work, but you do get the perk of having the cleanest house on the block!

        hi gr81, mind if i cut and paste that on the rad monitoring forum for discussion?.. i was wondering about that too.. gotta hepa filter hoover and 1 thats not!
        good advice here

        open all doors and windows before hoovering.. remove the cat to safe place, don paper mask at least! begin hoovering… best done on a windy day with low gieger readings.. if possible!?

          No problem on the cut and paste, but if it is at all windy outside anything in the dust outside becomes airborne.

          It could, of course, become very expensive to create a microcircuit manufacturing level air cleaning and pressurization system in our homes. The knowledge of EXACTLY what “brand” and level of isotope is out there should be the steering force in the direction of HOW MUCH MONEY TO SPEND.

          That said:
          I’m not sure if the proper level of instrumentation even exists which can be trusted to continually and accurately evaluate just what radioactive hazards we need to protect ourselves from the most. It IS ALL BAD, but it’s present distance from you and/or it’s ability to travel to you or to INSIDE OF YOU are all factors in each individual’s dosage.

    A profile of Koide in a UC Berkeley paper from May 2011 says this:

    Hiroaki Koide, a Nuclear Reactor Specialist, has held a position of jokyo, equivalent to assistant professor, at the Research Reactor Institute of Kyoto University since 1974. When he entered the Nuclear Engineering Department of Tohoku University in 1968, like most Japanese people at the time, Koide believed that nuclear power was a dream resource for the future. He soon learned, however, that nuclear power was extremely dangerous, and that construction of nuclear power plants was based on exploitation of the weaker strata of society. Since this realization in 1970, he has continuously appealed for abolition of nuclear power generation. For forty years, he has sacrificed possibilities for academic promotions and research funding in behalf of this honorable and worthy cause.

    Sounds like a good guy who sacrificed career promotion for the truth and for life!

    The other names on the surveillance list which I can read (only about 10) all seem to be musicians, artists, authors. But I bet there have been more names added since this original publication. How about the scientist who did videos on his anger of what was being done to the children. Can’t remember his name. He was featured in ENE…

    Saturday, June 18th, 2011 | Posted by admin mothers of Fukushima Call for help
    Dear friends
    We are in Fukushima city just 60km away from the Fukushima nuclear plant.
    Now, our children’s physical condition is in danger.
    We see symptoms such as swollening of the thyroid, nosebleed, diarrhea, cough, asthma, etc..

    We, Mothers of those children, believe it is a very serious situation and worries about the effects of atomic radiation on our children’s health.
    and worries about the effect of radiation on on the health of our children.

    Our government have been announcing that there is no effect on our health from radiation at all.

    We cannot believe our government’s safety standard any more.
    We cannot wait our children to have a cancer from the high risks of exposure.

    We have decide to start up an organization in order to protect our children.
    We are planning to research on health issues by ourselves with the cooperative scholars and experts with our own independent network
    On June 19th, we will invite a team of doctors for health counseling sessions.

    Please, we need more doctors and experts.
    Please, we need more of your advices,
    Please help us protecting our children from the effect of radiation
    for our and your future!!

    Sincerely,
    Aya MARUMORI
    Representative of FUKUSHIMA Information Center for Saving Children from Radiation

Afterwards: the sad result of 12 arrests, among them Shin Futatsugi, one of the organizers.” http://radioactivists.org/2011/update-on-anti-nuclear-protests-in-japan/

    The Japanese government and police are not just watching people. As the story above illustrates, they ‘pressure’ people and visit them at home, questioning them personally.

    I remember reading about an anti nuclear blogger in Japan that was being harassed by police on more than one occasion. Anyone have a link?

  • The next step might be to make all anti nuclear and peace activists ‘terrorists’. This makes it possible to just cart everyone off to ‘camps’, to get ‘reeducated’, like they did in Russia at Gulags and in Germany at the concentration camps.

    Because the US Congress just passed a law saying the US military could detain anyone inside the USA, even if their are US citizens, it is totally up to the President to decide who is and who is not suspected of aiding or supporting or acting as a terrorist. (It just so happens this is against the Constitution and Bill of Rights, but hey, that did not stop President Bush either).

    NO US court can say boo about it, and the military can hold all US citizen’suspects’ indefinitely, without trial, without charges, and potentially also torture them until they confess. (Does this sound like the Salem witch trials to you?) (The legalizing of torture was never repealed, and it was made legal under President Bush). President Obama did not reverse this, and he actually said he had a right to use this law as well.

    We are losing our freedoms and rights folks… Part of involves controlling the flow of information and truth.. The media control is almost 100%.

    Need Proof?
    There is little or no news about Fukushima on major news media, and anything you see on major news media is very short and provides no details, while staying positive or neutral. (This is good for corporations and their profits, right?) Guess what? Huge corporations like GE own all major news outlets, so they get to ‘control’ what information gets out there… including FUKU.

    So my prediction is that you will never hear a negative word about FUKU on any major news channel, about 99.9% of the time, it will be either positive or neutral, if you ever hear anything at all.

    To know what is going on, you have to watch this site and bloggers. This is sad… truth is relegated to one small dark corner, tucked away in a news world filled with minutia.

      I fear you are correct AGR

      I know nothing about “occupy” but I know enough about the effects to see that it scared the daylights out of the government.

      The US congress immediately passed the law you describe, and the internet is the prime target for locating the “terrorists”.

      It seems somewhat ironic, since the United States would not exist if not for actions similar to these, and for that reason specifically, the protections were written in to the Constitution by those who took the chances and formed the country.

A ban on entry to the exclusion zone has kept scientists from sizing up the true situation in the area and has hampered the work of journalists.

    Is it possible, admin., that one day we all announce and/or have the option to indicate where we live?

    I’m so intrigued by the potential backgrounds of some of your faithful. I won’t mention any names, except I believe someone (at least one) is Scandinavian (I hope that’s not a derogatory term), and I believe I’ve only met one Swede in my life. Well, two Swedes, and while I understand, or only learned recently, this is a site based in the US of A. I’m still convinced that this forum could be one of the most eclectic communities that I visit, and the only one that might compare, although much more Euro-centric, is the Guardian CIF.

    I’m betting (and I know) a number of folks live on the Pacific Coast as well as Colorado and I believe Arizona and/or New Mexico? Hopefully, there are no, or few, Texans. Joking, although not really.

    That’s all.

    It would be interesting if the Japanese people passed a law requiring all elected, appointed, or otherwise hired officials to wear wireless electronic ankle bracelets which kept them gps located, listened in on all conversations they had, and provided real-time measurement of their radiation exposure. Maybe require all nuclear officials to wear a hat with a camera on it, too.
