"Difference in response between Germany and Japan over the Fukushima nuclear power plant accident"
The environment political party, "Green Party" made a breakthrough, and the ruling coalition parties were defeated in the state parliament elections held in Baden-Burtenburg, south-western Germany on Mar. 27.
What surprised me was that the chancellor Merkel said "It's apparent that the discussion over the big accident of the Fukushima nuclear power plant has become the cause of defeat." (Asahi newspaper Mar. 29)

"Abject Kan's DPJ administration - escaped the press conference for discharge of radiation polluted water"
I have no doubt it's a hell of a thing that TEPCO has discharged radiation polluted water into the sea.
The responsibility of Kan's DPJ administration which accepted the discharge rides on their shoulders and would be memorized in history.
I can't stress this point enough.
"Urgent deploring condemnations - I never thought they'd discharge radiation polluted water into the sea!"
NHK 7 o'clock evening news shocked me.
It said TEPCO (Tokyo Electric Power Company) was about to discharge water polluted with radiation material into the sea,
telling the Kan administration had accepted it.
"A life left to decay - 83 days record of radiation exposure treatment"
I have learned various things through the Fukushima nuclear power plant accident this time by seeing for myself, or being taught by others.
Learning the inhumanity of radioactive material which I've ever been ignorant of.
Japanese people have to be the most familiar with the matter - I'm just one of them - and Japan is the only nation to suffer atomic bombings, but I've known that being kept alive without noticing it.
"And Then There Were None"
Rebel campaign in Egypt have intensified.
I didn't expect it would expand as big as it is to tell the truth.
In any event, the Mubarak regime has escaped any danger so far.
It's due to the overwhelming support of U.S.
Then I still don't think Egypt would achieve a popular revolution like Tunisia.
U.S. would try to build up a pro-U.S. regime at a pinch, discarding Mubarak.
It's obviously not a true popular revolution which I hope.
If the people revolution is not real thing, major trend is not affected.
