Breaking News: Whistle-blower of neptunium239 was purged, Fukushima Diary by Mochizuki, August 16th, 2011:

A couple of days ago, the report that they detected thousands Bq of neptunium239 in Iidate mura shocked the whole world.

However, the people who blogged about the report were purged. […]

They told the duo,”TV show is a product to sell,so we can’t be against our sponsor.It’s taboo to talk about Tepco and Genpatsu at variety program.”

The duo was imposed silence on which TV channel and what TV show it is, but they say it is the major one. […]

I Do not say the station name and program name, one flowing chatter A big variety show appearances so from the said 呟Kimasu ☆! “Sorry, the pressure is greater than you think in the field” I’m doing the press office with a budget of TV, but variety is the product not of public Janaku, What I go against an advertising agency.

“Entertainer press conference,” Mako mandarin duck “show appearance, A flow chatter!”

After the accident the nuclear Fukushima Daiichi TEPCO, attended many times in the press conference, TEPCO, comedy duo have been originated and look at the blog “Mandarin Duck” The Mako’s “A chatter flowing one appearance for variety show huge!” And August 15 (2011) on Twitter tweeted on.

Mako is the author of the program was responsible for the acquisition ahead of next week, “Sorry, the pressure is greater than you think in the field” and was informed that there are no story appeared. For background, see “I’m doing the press office with a budget of TV, but variety is the product not of public Janaku, What I go against an advertising agency,” said. Authors are responsible for the mandarin duck “press conference entertainers” but tried to appoint as “TEPCO” “primary” is that variety is a taboo, but rewrote the script four times, finally seem 下Rinakatta permission .

Mako is “and Nde I love writers, and I hope we can receive impact,” but the writers care about, their is “surprisingly, the day of recording flows from the errand was to go to the Restaurant, Oh, we totally unconcerned at about Lucky’s work but I love the stage and entertainer, and I Kenparu (partner), if a good friend of the Restaurant and now I “nonsense and behaved.

    “The producers offered to hire one of the comedy duo back if they would both apologize on camera and one of them commit seppuku.”

  • selfsovereign

    Another pair of heros thrown under the wheels of the bus of profit obssessed megalamaniacs.

    The power exerted by their money and influence is heinously nefarious(evil AND wicked).

    The dissonance resolvement is staggering. There is no SANE justification in destroying peoples lives, just for speaking out in order to save lives amongst THEIR OWN PEOPLE!

    I am horrified to think this harsh dictatorship/censorship is motivated by money, and the power it gives!

    A FLIPPIN fiat currency, backed by NOTHING in REALITY.

    They destroy the liveability of this world for a colorful piece of paper that comes off a printing press. Not backed by gold,silver or even reality.

  • Clocka

    These duo will apologize and return back to the show. Otherwise they will face the street!

    Most Westerners don’t know how Japan works. Nothing gets done in Japan without the approval of the politicians, big companies and yakuza, the trinity of Japan.

    These duo were lucky that there was no visit from the local chapter of yakuzas, YET. But if they don’t conform, they will have one less finger each in the very near future.

    This whole damned business is a veritable comedy show. In fact it’s what is known as tragic-comedy.

    Now then, where’s Peter Sellers when we really need him?

  • odylan

    … and Dr Strangelove of course.

    Iitate-mura looks more like 70km or more from the plant! i had a quick look, maybe i misgauged the distance ! but it looks more than fifty km!
    bit of a cut and paste

    “Twenty neptunium radioisotopes have been characterized, with the most stable being 237
    Np with a half-life of 2.14 million years, 236
    Np with a half-life of 154,000 years, and 235
    Np with a half-life of 396.1 days. All of the remaining radioactive isotopes have half-lives that are less than 4.5 days, and the majority of these have half-lives that are less than 50 minutes. This element also has 4 meta states, with the most stable being 236m
    Np (t½ 22.5 hours).

    The isotopes of neptunium range in atomic weight from 225.0339 u (225
    Np) to 244.068 u (244
    Np). The primary decay mode before the most stable isotope, 237
    Np, is electron capture (with a good deal of alpha emission), and the primary mode after is beta emission. The primary decay products before 237
    Np are isotopes of uranium and protactinium, and the primary products after are isotopes of plutonium.”

    and i think we might have found the missing plutonium! there, that was easy! i hope!

    from the link

    first this
    “Neptunium was first produced by Edwin M. McMillian and Philip H. Abelson, working at the University of California, Berkeley, in 1940. They produced neptunium-239, an isotope of neptunium with a half-life of about 2.4 days, by bombarding uranium with slow moving neutrons.”

    And then this
    “Uranium-239 is an isotope of uranium. It is usually produced by exposing 238U to neutron radiation in a nuclear reactor. 239U has a half-life of about 23.45 minutes and decays into neptunium-239 through beta decay, with a total decay energy of about 1.29 Mev.[2]. The most common gamma decay at 74.660 kev accounts for the difference in the two major channels of beta emission energy, at 1.28 and 1.21 Mev.[3]

    239Np further decays to plutonium-239, in a second important step which ultimately produces fissile 239Pu (used in weapons and for nuclear power), from 238U in reactors.”

    Interesting bit that last paragraph maybe?

    And this interesting link with this quote

    “A full-controlled criticality of the element neptunium was achieved in late September 2002 at Los Alamos National Laboratory’s Technical Area 18 using a six kilogram nickel-clad neptunium sphere in combination with approximately 60 kilograms of enriched uranium. Scientists now know it takes about 30 percent less neptunium than previously thought, or about 60 kilograms, to generate a nuclear chain reaction.”

    wonder what sort of “experiments” they might have been up to at old fuku? Just trying to stimulate the grey matter a bit with this one!

      lets be specific here, its not the meptunium its the plutoium that it converts tp that is censored? how will tepco get the people back into the area if there is plutonium scattered around? the waterways and rains etc are being contaminated and the plutonium (illegal censored word) is spreading everywhere!

      THESE TWO WHISTLE BLOWERS HAVE SAVED LIVES!! this is a fact! by increasing the knowledge of the whereabouts of these toxins they have alerted the japanese people, they are heroes and should be recognised as such….enenews salutes you both!

      the alternative is to wait to see what the lawyers and big PR wants to release! not alot as there remit is to mitigate costs to shareholders…wonder how much the bushes have invested in nuclear???

  • arclight arclight

    -0 heares a link to a thread discussing censorship and it shows what these two were up against! they dint stand a chance but they still went for it! god bless them!

    [Plutonium may have spread more than we have ever thought]

    In Gujo shi,Gifu,I wiped off the body of my car with tissues and checked it with two types of Geiger counters.
    1) detectable beta ray and gamma ray:no change.
    2) detectable beta ray,gamma ray,and alpha ray: 50cpm → 200cpm

    Alpha ray is detected in Gifu.(about 450km from Fukushima plants.)
