Nuclear crisis in Japan after tsunami caused by earthquake



Platicando con Tarket’s opinion and suggestions:

First, do not panic and do not take the official for granted ‘cause they always hide something. Also track all the info and then reach a conclusion with facts.

Second, if you live or have to visit Japan, in places such as Tokyo and 120 kms. distance from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plants watch out the radiation on green vegetables and water. Avoid drinking milk and water from the faucett, eating green vegetables such as spinach, broccoli, chard, etc. and do not eat sea food.

If you are further from those areas, do not feel relief, keep the alarm.

Thridly, if possible stay indoors when raining or snowing and of course if you have to move out, when going out cover with a plastic and then throw it out.

Finally, for the rest of the world if it is not urgent, do not travel to Japan, help spread useful info to help or comments for cheering up, ask if you have contacts in Japan and  follow the media. Scientists say the slow average of radiation will reach first the northern hemisphere. It depends on the speed of wind and of course the control of leaks in the nuclear radiators.

ALWAYS KEEP INFORMED AND IN CONTACT THROUGH INTERNET (MEDIA,OFFICIAL SITES,BLOGS,FACEBOOK,TWITTER,ETC)

Thank you for praying.

My place was not much damaged.

But, the disaster is still coming to other areas, especially in the Tohoku area.

The concept of this video is to tell you that we are alive, have smile and want to say thank you.

People in this video tried to collect contributions on the street for the Tohoku area.

We are under the anxiety, but I think that we can help each other with smiles even in such matter.

We are also praying and we are doing what we can do for Japan.

So please, we need your help.



Apocalypse Island said to be Juan Fernandez shown in History Channel

The History Channel: La Isla Apocalíptica… y es chilena

Google ya entrega 553.000 referencias al término “Apocalypse Island”, habiéndose emitido este programa en la TV norteamericana hace pocas semanas.

Anoche The History Channel presentó el programa “La Isla Apocalíptica”. En este programa, el arqueólogo norteamericano Jim Turner afirma haber descubierto un enorme monumento maya -de 45 metros de altura, acompañado por un enorme jaguar agachado- en la isla Juan Fernandez (Chile).

Según el arqueólogo, este descubrimiento daría algunas luces sobre la “fatídica” fecha del 21 de diciembre de 2012, fecha en la que termina el calendario maya, y que recientemente ha sido interpretada como la fecha del fin del mundo (la exitosa película 2012 se basa en esa hipótesis).

Lo llamativo del descubrimiento de Turner, es que la isla sería el único punto del mundo en que durante 2012 será posible apreciar dos fenómenos astronómicos significativos:

El primero, 40 días antes del 21 de diciembre, cuando se verá el tránsito del planeta Venus (de especial importancia para los mayas) por delante del Sol. Uno de los fenómenos astronómicos menos habituales, y que coincidirá con un día sagrado maya.

Cuarenta días más tarde, el 21 de diciembre de 2012, frente a este supuesto megalito maya y rodeado por un formidable anfiteatro montañoso, se verá un eclipse total de Sol.

Más alla de la natural discusión sobre la veracidad o fantasía del asunto, no cabe duda que la difusión de este programa dará una renovada fama al archipielago chileno (que incluye la isla Robinson Crusoe), creando mayor interés mundial por el grupo de islas y atrayendo una interesante cantidad turistas, que contribuirá a la recuperación del poblado asolado por el tsunami del 27 de febrero pasado.

 http://www.apocalypseisland.com/ web site of James Turner, explorer who officially launched what would become the Apocalypse Island Project in an effort to document his travels and the discovery of the island monument, along with the insights the monument had provided in his interpretation of the inscriptions at Palenque and the Mayan calendar.  This work continues to the present day.

In the early morning hours of February 27, 2010, a Magnitude-8.8 earthquake struck off the coast of Chile, causing widespread devastation on the continent and sending a tsunami racing toward the sleeping villagers of Robinson Crusoe Island.  The killer waves slammed into the island without warning.  The sea rushed 1000 feet inland through the seaside village of San Juan Bautista, destroying property and claiming the lives of more than a dozen people.  The administrative buildings, school, cemetery, and seaside homes were dragged back into the sea, destroying in a few moments what it took the islanders decades to build.

My most personal connection to the destruction was through my dear friend Pedro Niada, who, with his wife Fabiana, found themselves swimming in the water with their two young children.  They managed to climb into an abandoned drifting boat which was then thrown ashore by the waves, at which time they leapt out and ran for their lives.  It is almost unimaginable the fear and anguish that they have suffered.  Pedro woroe to me: “We have lost everything but not our dreams.”   Pedro and Fabiana had operated an island tour operation, Endemica Expediciones, from a hostel they had built themselves.  The hostel, known as El Pez Volador (The Flying Fish), was a warm respite of hospitality in this rugged environment and was completely obliterated by the tsunami.  The photos below show before-and-after shots, where the tall red pylon can be used to gauge where the hostel once stood. The Apocalypse Island team has begun taking donations to help Pedro and the other islanders rebuild their lives.  Please take a moment to view the “Apocalypse Island Tsunami Relief Fund” page of this website and to consider donating to this worthy cause.

Tsunami:Three basics to happen

A tsunami happens:

1- After an earhtquake plus than 6,5 in Richter Scale.

2- Epicenter inside the sea.

3- Distance between the focus of earthquake towards land is less than 60 kilometers

Anyway if you do not have these three infos:

1- Stay away of the seashore. It is not a common beach day!!!

2- Go up at least 11 metres to a hill or keep away the same amount of metres on the surface in case is flat land.

3- Leave vehicles and walk to avoid traffic jam that will reach you easily than the tsunami



Girl (12) saved many people in Chilean island from tsunami by striking the gong

SANTIAGO DE CHILE / EFE

Una niña de 12 años salvó la vida de buena parte de los habitantes del archipiélago Juan Fernández, a 600 kilómetros de la costa chilena, al alertar sobre las olas gigantes que devastaron las islas tras el terremoto que este sábado asoló el centro y sur de Chile.

Según publica hoy el diario La Tercera, la menor, llamada Martina Maturana, se enteró del fuerte sismo a través de su abuelo, residente en Valparaíso, y corrió hasta una céntrica plaza de Robinson Crusoe, la principal isla del archipiélago, e hizo sonar un gong, que es la alarma del pueblo para estos casos.

La señal despertó a varios lugareños de la isla, quienes también empezaron a tocar campanas y a huir hacia las alturas, minutos antes de que una ola gigante destruyera buena parte del territorio, donde por el momento se han registrado ocho víctimas fatales y 13 desaparecidos.

La menor, hija de un carabinero destinado en la isla Robinson Crusoe, percibió el terremoto como un leve temblor, aunque avisó a su padre, quien llamó a Valparaíso para conocer el estado de su familia.

Al escuchar la magnitud del movimiento telúrico, la niña observó por la ventana que los botes varados en la bahía saltaban y chocaban entre ellos, tras lo que corrió a la plaza del pueblo para hacer sonar la alarma y salvar muchas vidas entre los cerca de 700 habitantes de la isla.

El gobernador de Valparaíso, Ricardo Bravo, viajó este domingo al archipiélago, donde aseguró que “no quedó nada”.

Según explicó, las olas ingresaron 300 metros en el territorio de la isla y destrozaron las viviendas de unos 200 habitantes, que fueron albergados en casas vecinas.

El terremoto, de 8,8 grados Richter, ha dejado hasta el momento 711 fallecidos y dos millones de damnificados.

Girl saved island village from tsunami by sounding alarm

By Peter Krupa | Published: March 1, 2010

(Translated from an article in La Tercera.)

On the Juan Fernández Islands, 600km off the coast of Chile, the 8.8 earthquake that shook the mainland on Saturday morning was only a gentle tremble. At least that’s what it felt like to Maratina Maturana, 12 years old and the daughter of a federal police officer stationed on Robinson Crusoe Island.

Worried that something strange had happened, she told her father, who after calming her down, called the mainland to get information about a possible earthquake. When her grandfather in Valparaíso confirmed that a tragedy had occurred in Chile, Martina looked out the window and saw that the boats in the bay were bucking and bumping into each other

That’s when she ran to the village square and rang the gong installed in the center of the park. Though she didn’t know the emergency codes used by the island’s authorities – two for fire, three for landslide – she woke several of the island residents, who also started ringing bells and fleeing to high ground. Minutes later, a tsunami destroyed the cove. It was thanks to Martina that the tsunami didn’t cause more deaths.

“There was nothing left”

Ricardo Bravo, Valparaíso’s governor, told stories like these upon returning to the mainland from the islands yesterday afternon. “There was nothing left on the island,” he explained. According to Bravo, who was named head of the Juan Fernández emergency committee, the waves swept inland 300 meters, flooding a school, the town square, and the municipality. Yesterday, two ambulance planes arrived with the remains of eight victims who died in the disaster. Another four will be buried on the island.

Bravo said that 200 people were affected, which represents 35% of the island’s population. They were taking shelter in the homes that were still standing. There are also eight people missing, among them a Spanish citizen. As for the injured, Bravo said that five were flown in on Saturday and two yesterday. “They’re the most seriously injured, with fractures and wounds. Those with less serious injuries stayed (on the island),” he said. An army unit that will work on clean-up and rebuilding arrived yesterday on the frigate Condell with rescue equipment, water, food, generators, and a team of paramedics.
