Finding a hole on the wall

I’m posting this at 22.4 bps of my poor 3G.
I was supposed to install the internet line before this noon and post about the 500,000 Bq of tritium detection in the afternoon but the internet people didn’t show up for some reason. They should have come yesterday.
However, the unexpected day off made me a lot of time to think about my situation.
Now I’m in Arad, but I might not be able to withdraw the apartment in Bucharest because I don’t know any lawyer in Arad, at least by now.
The apartment in Arad costs 130 € a month. The one in Bucharest costs 250 € a month (plus utility for both of them). It is ridiculous to keep the one in Bucharest. Also, I will need to have a proper headquarters for Fukushima Diary corporation after this winter. The rent would be 150 € ish a month.
The financial burden is becoming bigger and bigger.

but it’s almost nothing compared to the costs in Svalbard, where I’m planning to go to research this summer.
I’ll have to stay at a hotel until I find an apartment or something. The cheapest place costs 120 € a night. Not even a month. Also, the airplane ticket became more expensive than last time I researched. The total cost therefore would be 4,000 ~ 5,000 € even if it’s for only 2 weeks research.

I must do what can be done only me. Research and report is an important work to do but that is not enough as my 2 years have proven.

The reason why I came to Arad is to research the wine industry and real estate market. For now, I might need to focus on these until it becomes off-season in Svalbard.

Set the goal, calculate the way carefully..

Je publie ceci par les 22,4 bps de mon pauvre 3G.
J’étais supposé installer la ligne internet avant midi aujourd’hui et publier sur les 500 000 Bq de tritium détectés cet après-midi mais les gens d’internet ne se sont pas présentés, sans raison. Ils auraient du venir hier.
Quoi qu’il en soit, ce jour de chômage inattendu m’a donné pas mal de temps pour réfléchir à ma situation.
Je suis à Arad maintenant mais je ne vais sans doute pas pouvoir lâcher l’appartement de Bucarest parce que je ne connais aucun avocat à Arad, au moins en ce moment.
L’appartement d’Arad coûte 130 € par mois. Celui de Bucarest 250 € par mois (plus les charges pour les deux). Il serait ridicule de garder celui de Bucarest. De plus, je vais avoir besoin d’un véritable siège pour la société Fukushima Diary dès la fin de l’hiver. Le loyer devrait tourner autour des 150 €/mois.
La charge financière s’alourdit de plus en plus.

mais ce n’est pratiquement rien en comparaison avec les coûts pour Svalbard où je prévoie d’aller faire des recherches cet été.
Je vais devoir rester à l’hôtel jusqu’à ce que j’y trouve un appartement ou autre. Le moins cher est à 120 € par nuit, pas par mois. De plus, le billet d’avion est plus cher que lors de ma dernière recherche. Le coût total devrait donc tourner autour de 4 à 5 000 € même si ce n’est que pour 2 semaines de recherches.

Je dois faire ce qui ne peut l’être que par moi. Les recherches et leurs résultats sont un travail important à faire mais ce n’est pas suffisant, comme mes 2 dernières années l’ont prouvé.

La  raison qui m’a fait venir à Arad est de prospecter les marchés viti-vinicoles et immobiliers. Pour l’instant, je pourrais me concentrer sur ça jusqu’à ce qu’on soit hors-saison à Svalbard.

Fixer le but, calculer minutieusement le chemin..


Les virement mensuels aident aussi beaucoup !

  1. Not much colder than Hokkaido in winter. Endless night for a few months would be difficult to handle though.

  2. If the laws of supply and demand work well, when your 5 million or so of Japanese ar going to head to Romania, the rent, land price, etc. will not be cheaper anymore! There are numerous points to consider ! Good luck with that, I believe that your idea is original but needs the work of more than one person. What you propose, is going to attract only a part of the radiation affected Japanese; self-selection based on income, language abilities, etc. is going to take place.I see your plan as a huge project that needs additional help, but I have no clue of how to proceed. I admire your efforts and follow your progress. Svalbard does not seem a great idea—-unless retired people are your target. You have to bring the young, offer them education, places of work, health care, etc. Svalbard is destroyed if population pressure arises!

  3. its troubling to find the hurdles to completing your mission, I hope you can do a satisfactory study at least to prove its possible – or not.

    I made two visits to Japan in 1980’s – had work friends in Ibaraki.
    My feeling for most of Japanese people, even those who understand the radiation issues, is they are not likely to want to emigrate to another place.

    For these people, surely the best advice is to move west in the country and become aware by using geiger counters. I use one here in New Zealand and check foods which might be unsafe such as tuna. Establishing a safe place to live and where the schools have safe lunches or allow own lunch provision would be the most important requirement.

    I dont know if its possible in Japan – there must be more rural areas that have a local food supply and being far away from Tokyo the costs are not so high, but the people need someone who can suggest how to do it.
    Just as I have dreamt of how to build a Yurt, or maybe Lumberjack Cabin – simple living housing, which can be built on a site at low cost, but not every person thinks this way. Perhaps people would not accept the lower income jobs available and no city life of these areas – radiation risk should not be a problem within Japan if one is prepared to check for it an be self sufficient if necessary to avoid it. Living this way might be similar to emigrating to Europe but without the travel costs and culture changes.

  4. You can stay anytime at my place for free. Free food, free internet, as long as you want. It’s summer time! Mamaia, Constanta, Romania, 44°11’28.17″N, 28°37’25.00″E

  5. Have you heard about coachsurfing?
    There you can find a bed in a home for free for a period.
    Otherwise is Youth Hostels a price worth alternative.
    If a big Japanese population are going to settle down, the land must be able to supply the people. Svalbard seems to be difficult. Romania have better conditions.
    Good luck!

  6. (my apology for misspelling a great mans name in previous, so this is a compilation of Albert Einstein quotations woven courtesy of yours truely)

    The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.

    It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity.

    The unleashed power of the atom has changed everything save our modes of thinking and we thus drift toward unparalleled catastrophe.

    I do not believe that civilization will be wiped out in a war fought with the atomic bomb. Perhaps two-thirds of the people of the earth will be killed.

    No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.

    A perfection of means, and confusion of aims, seems to be our main problem.

    Information is not knowledge.

    -Albert Einstein (German: [ˈalbɐt ˈaɪnʃtaɪn] 14 March 1879 – 18 April 1955)

    -my original tranlastions of quotations above-


    言うまでも無く 我々の科学進化は等々人間性を超えてしまった。

    秘められた原子の力が全てを変え考え方固定観念的結果 想定外以上な破滅。





    1. just noticed the supreme irony that The Fukushima Meltdown occurred on his Birthday!

      今気付きましたが、なんたる皮肉に 福島第一原子炉の炉心溶融が起きた日がアンシュタインの誕生日と同じ日付!

About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
