Radioactive Silver-110m detected at over 10,000 Bq/m² outside 30km evacuation zone (MAP)

Oct. 31 — “The Ministry of Education and Science announced on October 31 the ‘result’ of the survey they did in June. Much like announcing the result in July of the survey they did in March about radioactive fallout in Tohoku and Kanto, where radioactive iodine, cesium tellurium and silver were found in abundance in Tokyo,” reports EX-SKF.

See maps from the Ministry’s announcement on October 31 here:

The half life of Silver is about 250 days.

“Silver-110m probably came from melted control rods, and went all the way to Tokyo,” notes EX-SKF.

    Same thing from back in August.
    Supposedly from the control rods burning.

    Crisis spokesman drinks decontaminated water
    Tuesday, Nov. 1, 2011 Kyodo

    Parliamentary Secretary for the Cabinet Office Yasuhiro Sonoda, who briefs the media about the nuclear crisis at the Fukushima plant, staged a reckless safety appeal Monday by drinking a glass of supposedly “safe” water — decontaminated from low-level radioactive water taken from puddles inside the buildings housing reactors 5 and 6 at the plant….

    The costly fallout of tatemae and Japan’s culture of deceit
    Tuesday, Nov. 1, 2011

    There is an axiom in Japanese: uso mo hōben — “lying is also a means to an end.” It sums up the general attitude in Japan of tolerance of — even justification for — not telling the truth.

    First — defining “telling the truth” as divulging the truth (not a lie), the whole truth (full disclosure) and nothing but the truth (uncompounded with lies) — consider how lies are deployed in everyday personal interactions.

    Let’s start with good old tatemae (charitably translated as “pretense”). By basically saying something you think the listener wants to hear, tatemae is, essentially, lying. That becomes clearer when the term is contrasted with its antonym, honne, one’s “true feelings and intentions.”

    Tatemae, however, goes beyond the “little white lie,” as it is often justified less by the fact you have avoided hurting your listener’s feelings, more by what you have gained from the nondisclosure.

    Oct. 31 (Bloomberg) — The destroyed Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan was responsible for the biggest discharge of radioactive material into the ocean in history, a study from a French nuclear safety institute said.

  • In the Ex-SKF story it says “Sure. They are shorter-life nuclides, which means radioactivity is stronger. Even if they simply pass through the body without accumulation, I would think they zap the body with radiation as they pass through.” And then in the comment section buddy says “Becquerel is a unit of radioactivity, so that variable is already included in the data.”
    But then I wonder if you get an absolute value of radiation such as the Becquerel do we know what percentage is gamma radiation? I’m thinking 1 Becquerel of gamma radiation is more harmful (or stronger) then perhaps 1 Becquerel of Alpha or Beta radiation.
    Is Ex-SKF really saying shorter half lives give off more gamma radiation?

    Ex-skf and the commenter are both correct.
