My home is about 1000 km away from the atomic reactors.
We live high up in the mountains, no worry about tsunami.

I will try and compile a daily report after this triple event of

earthquake
tsunami
Fukushima reactor

Please use the sidebar on the right to navigate this BLOG.



As time goes by (now April 11, 2011) there are more rumors spreading and opinions vented.
The damage at the nuclear plant in Fukushima has been upgraded to level 7, like Chernobyl.

I am trying to keep cool amongst all this.

Most entries are a mix of haiku and facts,
from the NHK WORLD online bulletins.

I will try to feature the latest news about the development after the earthquake.

. Reconstruction efforts - INFO .

    Religious Responses to the 2011 Tsunami in Japan
    Levi McLaughlin
    Abstract and Keywords

    Scholars have recently begun synthesizing data on the massive aid response by religious organizations after the March 11, 2011, compound earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear disasters in northeast Japan. This article begins with a summary of recent statistical assessments that detail how much money religions raised, the kinds of material aid they provided, and the numbers of volunteers they mobilized. It then provides two contrasting ethnographic case studies of grassroots-level religious responses that reveal aspects that do not fit a statistical framework. The article highlights the importance of reading ethnographic accounts in combination with quantified data about Japanese religion to complicate reliance on assessments provided by institutional administrators in order to better understand how aid efforts take shape in local communities.
