I’m only interesting about a school in Indonesia intends to have girls undergo a virginity test before admitting them into high school and Fukushima leak upgraded to level three Thank you.

Thank you krutoiting   for sharing with us your interest. That verginity test, to me, is vulgar and without regard for children/human rights and victims of (sexual) abuse. On the nuclear power plants in Japan and Korea, my thought is we don't have enough technologies and safety procedures to deal with nuclear leaks yet. On the side, we don't even have enough safety procedures to deal with oil leaks in the Gulf of Thailand -- PTT is using money to absorb the toxic oil at the moment. We don't have any safety procedures to deal with leaks from gas wells dotted around Thailand -- do we wait till somebody dies, some water supply systems become contaminated, ...?

 

I hope they don’t use the “วัวหายแล้วล้อมคอก “ procedure to deal with leaks from gas wells.

There were a couple of reports last year on suspected gas leaks (in Lopburi and Korat ? my memory is failing) -- people could light up holes in the ground. The company that own many gas wells near by denied it was gas leaks from their wells; official investigations amounted to inspection of holes and reported possible "natural gas". No further checks for amount of gas released, impacts on people, wildlife and environment. I have no imfo whether the holes had been plugged or still leaking. A question I ask around but no one has answers is if we do have clear responsibilties and procedures --in laws or contracts (granted to gas companies)-- who and how must fix the problem and compensate victims.

Perhaps, someone may want to give us more info.

I think it’s a good idea to check with the reporters if they have more info on this.

I don't think they are intersted in talking to me -- in a foreign language, Besides, I have no money -- I don't talk money ;-)
