A woman's journey to find 2 basic necessities--WATER and LOVE!
Foreigners laid off in Japanese downturn
Foreigners who are among the first laborers in Japan to lose their jobs as the global financial crisis eats into demand for cars, trucks and motorcycles. The layoffs are the first evidence that the mushrooming economic meltdown in the United States and elsewhere which is shaking the Japanese labor market. At the core of the trend are hard times for the Japanese car industry. No. 1 producer Toyota Motor Corp and Nissan, Japan's third-largest automaker too is cutting back on domestic production. Most vulnerable to layoffs are the foreign workers who meet Japan's labor shortage as the country ages. Foreigners are often hired through temporary employment agencies, so they can be easily fired. They live in company housing, so they lose their apartments when they lose their jobs. There hasn't been a marked increase in homelessness, but anecdotes of foreigners having to move in with friends or relatives abound. Some foreign laborers have already abandoned Japan amid mounting troubles.
Nepal's Child Soldiers
Maoist child soldiers in Nepal are facing tough problems in terms o their reintegration with their respective families. Many of these child soldiers are struggling as civilians - having lost the power they once had as feared rebels and paying the price for their stance during the 10 year civil war. Almost 3,000 child soldiers, who have been confirmed as underage by the UN, are still living in Maoist camps across the country, with the former rebels afraid they will be re-recruited by other armed groups if they are released. There are specifically concerns that they might join other armed groups and there are people who, even if they came very late into the cantonments, have had some degree of physical and even military training there. Although UNICEF and other children's organisations have started working with child soldiers, both inside and outside the camps, to facilitate their return home. The process, however, is expected to be a tedious one.
Child poverty in Britain
Britain has one of the worst rates of child poverty in the industrialized world which is "shaming" this country. Around 3.6 million children, 28 per cent of the total, are living in poverty despite efforts by the Government to tackle the problem. It is appalling that in Britain in 2005 there are children whose parents cannot afford even the basic necessities others take for granted, such as a warm winter coat and three meals a day. We are seeing a new determination to tackle poverty but it is vital that we keep up the pressure on the Government to stick to its pledge to eradicate poverty by 2020. Poverty shames a relatively wealthy country like ours and we have a duty to stamp it out. It is shameful that poverty is still the greatest single threat to the well-being of children and families in the UK.
India's no to refugees
Refugees are the last thing India wants at this hour. Our country is already flooded with migrants and refugees from neighboring countries. India's porous borders allow all and sundry to escape lives full of destitution on account of war or poverty back home. Such influx has raised domestic problems within India. Our neighbors never get tired of exerting their political, social and economic sovereignty, their indisputable right to resolve the issues within their boundaries without any external interference. Good, they should. At the same time they must remember that right and responsibilities go hand in hand. If they cannot fulfill their responsibility of ensuring their safety they have no right to object to statements that arise from countries which are at risk of getting affected by their internal problems. It must understand that we cannot and will not provide for the refugee influx. To prevent that is the only option before Sri Lankans.

A week after the devastating earthquake that rocked Japan, workers are still struggling to get the country’s nuclear crisis under control. Japan’s nuclear agency has upgraded the situation from a four to a five on a 7-level scale, bringing the catastrophe on par with the 1979 Three Mile Island incident in Pennsylvania.
New aerial footage from a military helicopter paints a grim picture of the extent of the damage to Japan’s Fukushima reactor, which has seen multiple explosions since the quake and consequent tsunamis. (Video: The Telegraph)
The chopper itself was part of an initial tactic in the fight to keep spent nuclear rods from overheating, utilizing a water dumping technique commonly used to fight forest fires -- but strong winds quickly nixed that idea.
“Now the focus of the efforts by emergency workers has shifted away from airborne spraying to ground level and a more extensive use of these firetrucks to try to cool and restore power to the reactors. The aim is to get water back into the pools that house spent nuclear fool rods and avert a major radiation leak.” (BBC)
Even though the situation has been upgraded to level 5 -- defined by the IAEA as a quote -- “accident with wider consequences” -- Japanese officials say it’s due to new information about damage already done, not the current situation. (IAEA)
And Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano assures the international community, their efforts are keeping the reactors stable at least.
YUKIO EDANO, JAPANESE CHIEF CABINET SECRETARY (TRANSLATION): “As for reactor number 4, the situation is not as serious as reactors number 2 and 3, but we need to keep adding water to cool them, and be prepared. This is important.”
Meanwhile, another high priority goal is to restore power to the plant, which would enable crews to restart generators that power the reactor’s cooling systems. (Video: BBC)
The International Atomic Energy Agency says a half-mile power cord has been laid to Fukushima’s reactor number 2 building. But retired nuclear engineer Lake Barrett tells The Washington Post, it won’t be as simple as plugging in a cord.
“‘Existing cabling is probably burned,’ Barrett said, meaning crews in bulky radiation suits will have to engineer a high-voltage solution on the fly by boring through thick outer walls and connecting car-size electrical switches and relays.”
And while the world watches the battle against further nuclear catastrophe, NBC’s Ann Curry reports -- Japan is a country on edge.
ANN CURRY, REPORTER: “Passport centers around the country are full, train stations mobbed. Airlines are scrambling to fly thousands of people out of Tokyo. ... Crowds flocked aboard buses out of Sendai, a city hard-hit by the quake and tsunami, now low on basic necessities. Confusion, anger, and distrust are spreading despite the government’s reassurances about the risks of radiation.”
Experts say for now, wind currents are reportedly driving radiation away from Tokyo, Japan’s most-populated city. But a reporter from Global Radio News tells Fox News, those inside the city have been wary of exposure risks.
GAVIN BLAIR, REPORTER, GLOBAL RADIO NEWS: “Apparently the staff at the Italian embassy there weren’t trustful of the Japanese government’s pronouncements and took a Geiger counter onto the roof themselves and found that the levels of radiation were actually a fifth of what they were in Rome. So while there has been some panic in Tokyo, levels are back to normal there.”
Japan’s National Police Agency has raised the death toll to almost 7,000, and more than 10,000 are still listed as missing. ABC Australia reports there are currently around half a million people living in shelters.
