"they uncovered the roof" - Miracles of Fukushima Daini

Tokyo Imperial Palace Plaza...


Miracles of Fukushima Daini

There are two nuclear power plants in Fukushima Prefecture: Fukushima Daiichi (No.1) and Fukushima Daini (No.2) both of which suffered huge tsunamis on March 11, 2011, since they are close to each other geographically.

(Fukushima Daiichi has six nuclear reactors; Fukushima Daini has four nuclear reactors.)

Unlike Fukuhsima Daiichi, Daini could retain part of power sources for operation of equipment to circulate water to/from nuclear reactors.  But, the power source left alive needed special cables for connection to the equipment to circulate water.  The cables were not in Fukushima Daini and Daiichi.  Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) had to take them from other nuclear power plant in Niigata Prefecture 200 km west of Daini.

Accordingly, helicopters were dispatched to carry special power cables from the Kashiwazaki/Kariya nuclear power plant to the Fukshima Daini nuclear power plant.  Staff in Daini changed an annexed baseball park to a heliport.  As it was midnight and the tsunami knocked down two lines among three from the external grid, they illuminated the ad-hoc heliport with spotlights of 20 cars of staff.  They worked so hard to lay total 9 km (more than 5 miles) of power cables in two days.  This work would take 20 days in usual circumstances.

But the point at issue is that this cable laying work needed many hands.  Yet, as it was Friday evening that the great earthquake and tsunami occurred, many workers were in the plant.  If the natural disaster had occurred on Saturday or Sunday, it should have been impossible to get a necessary number of workers.

Anyway, in this way, the Fukushma Daini nuclear power plant was saved unlike Daiichi.

The most decisive point is that Daiichi lost receiving functions of power from the external power grid operated by Tohoku Electric Power Co., due to the 15-meter high tsunami.  But, Daini could keep normal the receiving function of one of three lines from the the grid, so that it could use external power to operate pumps for circulation of water to/from reactor units. For this purpose, the special cables were needed.

Other decisive point is that though pumps for driving water to cool pressure reactors were all destroyed in Fukushima Daiichi, Daini had one among four pumps secured from the tsunami (partly because the design of Daini was more tailored to possibility of tsunami/earthquakes unlike older Daiichi).  This one pump with external power supplied through the cable was mutually used to cool down the four reactor units.  It was because the pumps in Daini were protected with some robust structure unlike Daiichi where pumps faced the Pacific Ocean without any protection such as walls and ceilings.

Other big concern about nuclear power plants in Japan is involvement of gangsters in hiring workers for dangerous tasks in nuclear reactor containment vessels.

The elite company TEPCO uses the big subcontractors such as Toshiba and Hitachi not only for construction but also for maintenance of nuclear facilities.  But engineers of elite makers such as Hitachi and Toshiba are never engaged in dirty and dangerous jobs.  They use the second tire subcontractors who also use lower-level subcontractors.  And finally, some gangsters mobilize some socially marginal workers for dangerous jobs to take big margins from wages paid to those poor workers.

TEPCO knows this situation very well but only formally gives warning to subcontractors so that they should not have connections with gangsters.  In this context, Japanese nuclear power sector is cursed, indeed.

Mar 2:3 And they come unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy, which was borne of four.
Mar 2:4 And when they could not come nigh unto him for the press, they uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it up, they let down the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay.
Mar 2:5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee.

"cloven tongues like as of fire" - Ms. Wisława Szymborska

Running around Haneda Airport, Tokyo
On Tokyo Bay...


Ms. Wisława Szymborska

At a corner of a foreign matter page in a Japanese newspaper today, an obituary for Ms. Szymborska was presented:

Her work has been translated into many European languages, as well as into Arabic, Hebrew, Japanese and Chinese... 
Wisława Szymborska died on Wednesday, 1 February 2012, in her sleep at home in Kraków, aged 88. Her manager Michał Rusinek confirmed the information and said that she "died peacefully, in her sleep".[8][2] She was surrounded by friends and relatives at the time.[3] Foreign Minister Radek Sikorski was on Twitter to describe her death as an “irreparable loss to Poland's culture”.[3] 
She was working on new poetry right until her death, though she was unable to arrange her final efforts for a book in the way she would have wanted. Her last poetry will be published later in 2012.
 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wis%C5%82awa_Szymborska

In 1986, she wrote a poetry book "People on the Bridge."

This title implies a picture painted in Japan during the samurai era.  The painter, Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858), created a picture of a big bridge in Edo (presently Tokyo) under a rain with several disturbed people on and a big river with a humble boat on in addition to a Buddhist pagoda far over a bank on the other side.  He didn't know, of course, his painting (titled "O-Hashi Atake-no Yudachi") would influence a female author in Poland 100 years later. 


http://blogs.yahoo.co.jp/zennsouiti/46598228.html

But, it was not only Ms. Szymborska but also Gogh that was influenced by this Japanese classic picture as Gogh imitated the Japanese picture as follows.
http://blogs.yahoo.co.jp/zennsouiti/46598228.html

The notable painter Hiroshige died at the age of 62 in Edo, leaving a Japanese haiku poem for one's own death (a death song):

"Leaving my brushes in the East corner


Longing for the carefree journey I am   


Leading my soul to the West countries."


Ms. Szymborsk wrote that those strong and those righteous were still two different types of people, though the God had finally decided to commit a holy task to those who were strong and at the same time righteous.

On the other hand, Hiroshige lost his parents when he was 12-years old.  He took up his father's occupation: fireman.  Hiroshige at 15 became a disciple of a famous painter at the time, though he also worked as a fireman.  But when he became 26, he passed his occupation to his adopted son. However, Hiroshoge at 34 was shocked at very artful landscape pictures an Edo painter Hokusai presented, though Katsushika Hokusai was 71 years old at the time.  Then, Hiroshige came to concentrate on landscapes.  And, one of landscape pictures of Edo (Tokyo) is that picture "O-Hashi Atake-no Yudachi" meaning an evening shower at the big bridge at the Ataka district.

In addition, his death poem is interpreted as below:




"I leave my brush in the East
And set forth on my journey.
I shall see the famous places in the Western Land."

(The Western Land in this context refers to the strip of land by the Tōkaidō between Kyoto and Edo, but it does double duty as a reference to the Paradise of the Amida Buddha).
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hiroshige)

Act 2:1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
Act 2:2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
Act 2:3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
Act 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

"both Jesus was called, and his disciples" - New Nuclear Reactor Design

Tokyo Haneda Airport...
And Expressways...


New Nuclear Reactor Design

One of the significant lessons learnt from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident is that the current nuclear reactor has no means to contain fuel being melted down.

Accordingly, my idea is to provide a huge water tank beneath the container vessel which holds a pressure vessel where uranium fuel rods are set and water is circulated to/from a turbine room.



If a meltdown and melt-through occurs, melted uranium will be cooled down while it is gradually falling in the huge water tank installed just below the containment vessel.

As it will take some time for water filling this tank to evaporate, emergency work will have enough time to prepare and pour additional water into this tank.  So, if an accident should occur and uranium fuel should melt down and melt through the bottoms of the pressure vessel and the container vessel, staff can concentrate on emergency work to pour water into this tank.

If the reactor units of Fukushima Daiichi which underwent a meltdown accident had had this sort of huge underground water tank, no huge amount of leakage of radioactive material should have occurred.

Any existence nuclear reactors in the world should be equipped with this underground counter-meltdown water tank.  The costs for this reactor upgrading work will be just $100 million or so.

What is the most difficult challenge for a man to voluntarily take up?

It is to admit the limit of his own power and ability before somebody such as an enemy the God or the Archenemy set up before him, maybe.




Joh 2:2 And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.
Joh 2:3 And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine.
Joh 2:4 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.
Joh 2:5 His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.
Joh 2:6 And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece.
Joh 2:7 Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim.
Joh 2:8 And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it.
Joh 2:9 When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,
Joh 2:10 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.

"Now the days of David drew nigh" - Iran

Tokyo Subway...


IRAN

Iran is so symbolic in the historical context.

Ancient Iran or those who lived there then must have been involved in the fate of the ancient Mesopotamia kingdoms.  It might have even influenced the fate of Ur from which Abraham departed.  Then ancient Iranians had been able to contribute to the origin of Hebrews or Judaists,  Later Iran represented the East, if not Asia, to fight Alexander the Great and subsequently the Roman Empire.

Today, Iran stands against Israel and Saudi Arabia in addition to the U.S.  Iran has a huge amount of crude oil reserves, though the central issue on Iran is its nuclear development program.

Iran is something though it did not take its place among Iraq, Egypt, India, and China as the birth places of ancient urban civilization.

As I once calculated and found that the Second Coming of Christ started around 2010, the Iranian crisis today is really a symbolic event for this age.


Although the city (Pella in Palestine where early Christians fled) was still inhabited as late as the tenth Century CE, it was the deadly earthquake of CE 747 that ended its long history as a city of major influence in the region
http://eereporter.blogspot.com/2011/08/blog-post_21.html 
 720 - The second oldest exisiting imperial chronicle and myth of Japan called Nihon Shoki (Record of Japan) was compiled following an imperial order. This book has become one of major documentary resources for shintoism. 
752 - The world's largest bronze statue of the Buddha, called "Daibutsu" in Japanese, was built in Heijyo-kyo (Nara City), following an imperial order.

"(Islamic) Golden Age" (750–1258)
Under the Abbasids, Islamic civilization flourished in the "Islamic Golden Age", with its capital at the cosmopolitan city of Baghdad.

The Battle of Talas (or Battle of Artlakh in 751 AD between the Arab Abbasid Caliphate and the Chinese Tang Dynasty, resulting in transfer of paper production technology from China to Europe.

 In Yahuda MS 7 Newton twice gives 800 A.D. for the beginning of "the Pope's supremacy". The year 800 is a significant one in history, as it is the year Charlemagne was crowned emperor of Rome in the west by Pope Leo III at St. Peter's in Rome. Since Newton believed that the 1260 years corresponded to the duration of the corruption of the Church, he added 1260 to 800 A.D. and arrived at the date 2060 for the "fall of Babylon" or cessation of the apostate Church. ttp://www.isaac-newton.org/update.html
But I think it is 750 but not 800 due to the events above listed. Accordingly, 1260 + 750 = 2010. This must be the beginning of "fall of Babylon" or cessation of the apostate Church.
Yet, what was the situation in Iran around 750, specifically, that produced the Islamic Golden Age?
The Abbasid caliphate was founded by the descendants of the Islamic prophet Muhammad's youngest uncle, ‘Abbas ibn ‘Abd al-Muttalib, in Harran in 750 CE and shifted its capital in 762 to Baghdad. It flourished for two centuries, but slowly went into decline with the rise to power of the Turkish army it had created, the Mamluks.
 Abbasid Caliphate (light and dark green) at its greatest extent, c. 850. Territories in dark green were lost early on. 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abbasid_Caliphate
It is thought that Iranians actively joined Abbasid Caliphate or Abbasid Caliphate took Iranians actively into its imperial structure.  Abbasid Caliphate abolished position of advantage given to Arabs so that every Muslim, regardless of his/her ethnic background, came to be treated equally.  In this way, Islam became a world religion.  Or, for Islam to expand to the world, it needed involvement of Iranians first of all.

So, today's Iranian issue is so significant, symbolic, and even prophetic in terms to the Second Coming of Christ Jesus.

If people involved, including Iranians, Arabs, Judaists, Europeans, Americans, and even Russians and Chinese, cannot repent to come back to their right sense, something decisive could happen around the Persian Gulf where 80% of tankers Japan has, namely 3400 ships, pass every year to bring crude oil to Japan.

Mr. Romney won in Florida as everybody knows.

But, it was a dirty game mobilizing TV commercial power.  Is it an act enough to claim due respect from American voters who want a hero that can contribute more to America not only economically but culturally and spiritually than incumbent President Mr. Obama?

Mr. Obama became US President using his ability to deliver impressive speech while Mr. Romney is trying to be using his ability to manipulate indecent TV ads?  Is the US degenerating?

"God saw every thing" - Damascus

Tokyo Key Government Agency Street...and Anti-Nuclear Protesters


Damascus

Damascus is not referred to in the Gospels, but this ancient city appears even in Genesis:

2Chronicles 28:23 For he sacrificed unto the gods of Damascus, which smote him: and he said, Because the gods of the kings of Syria help them, therefore will I sacrifice to them, that they may help me. But they were the ruin of him, and of all Israel.

And, there is a Minaret called the Minaret of Jesus in Damascus where Christ Jesus is expected to descend from Heaven in the end of the world which, as I have calculated, must have already started around 2010.

The Minaret of Jesus (Madhanat Issa), located on the eastern corner of the mosque complex, is around 77 meters (253 ft) in height and the tallest of the three minarets.[67][68] Some sources claim it was originally built by the Abbasids in the 9th-century,[64] while other sources attribute the original structure to the Umayyads. The main body of the current minaret was built by the Ayyubids in 1247, but the upper section was constructed by the Ottomans.[68] The main body of the minaret is square-shaped and the spire is octagonal. It tapers to a point and is surmounted by a crescent (as are the other two minarets.) Two covered galleries are situated in the main body and two open galleries are located on the spire.[65] Islamic belief holds that Jesus will descend from heaven before the Day of Judgement to confront the Antichrist. According to local Damascene tradition, he will reach earth via the Minaret of Jesus, hence its name.[68] Ibn Kathir, a a prominent 14th-century Muslim scholar, backed this notion.

Accordingly, current and on-going battles in Syria must be part of the great event that Christ Jesus would appear in the second time on the human world, since human lives all belong to the God Almighty.

Yet, Japan is cold this winter with a great amount of falling snow like in 2005.  Scores of people have already died as they climbed up on the roof to remove heaped snow to protect their house from a meter-high snow cover but failed to prevent themselves from falling down.

"After me cometh a man" - Fukushima Now

Tokyo Street Surrounded by Japanese Government Buildings


Fukushima Now

An international anti-nuclear energy conference was held in Japan recently.

In one session of the conference, some people living in Fukushima told one aspect of truth in Fukushima today.

They said that there are two types of people who do not leave the Fukushima Prefecture, on whose Pacific Ocean coast area the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant is situated, despite the radiation dose problem.  The first type is of those who have not money enough to use for moving to other prefecture.  You need cash at hand to rent a new house and a job in a new address.  The second type is of those who do not want to be separated from close friends, colleagues, and old acquaintances as they do not move out of Fukushima Prefecture for any reasons.      

Now the Japanese Government have invested and poured huge money into recovery work in Fukushima Daiichi and decontamination work around the crippled nuclear power plant.  Business is are in the upward trend in many sectors in Fukushima Prefecture.  Fukushima people well understand the situation.  As a result, it is difficult for them to request money for moving house out of Fukushima from the Japanese Government or Tokyo Electric Power Corporation (TEPCO).

Besides, all the TV stations in Japan are compassionately promoting a message, "Hold on Fukushima! Get a grip Fukishima! Recover Fukushima!" Accordingly, some Fukushima citizens feel that it is a guilty to flee from Fukushima Prefecture abandoning efforts to rebuilt their life in their home towns.

So, some Japanese have come to wonder if it is good to invite other Japanese and citizens in the world to Fukushima Prefecture in the process of rebuilding prosperity of the Prefecture which is inherently well blessed with agriculture, forestry, fishery and industry.

It might be more honest for Fukushima citizens to shout "Don't come to Fukushima, since I want to leave the place!"

Anyway, Fukushima City, 70 km or 44 miles from Fukushima Daiichi Plant, receives 20 times more stronger doses than Tokyo, while Tokyo receives radioactive emission as little as New York does.
