線量率急上昇地域では何が起きているか 読者の自己犠牲的突入レポート

2017/11/18は、午後日本海側の各地で空間線量率が大きく上昇しました。以下は、Nさんの犠牲的精神による突撃リポートです。



午後5時ころNさんは激しい雨の中、仲間との小旅行で車で宿に向かっていました。

目的地に近づいて、「ええっと、原発近くない?」と少しは警戒心のあったNさんは、こっそりと仲間にわからないようにホワイトフードの 「ただ今の空間線量」を見たのです。

すると、走行中の辺りは、赤、黄、ダイダイのランプがピッカピカ。それを見たNさん
「あぁ、、車内からでも、喉がいがらい。。外は激しい雨です(T . T)」

でも無事に宿について楽しく夕食。部屋に戻っても部屋の構造からエアコンをつけずにいたそうです。外気は入らなかったのでしょう。

一晩明けた11/19、温泉施設へ。今日も午前中から線量率が高めでした。Nさんはまだお若いのに日帰り温泉? 最近は水着がいるところもあるそうですね。



「そこで上がろうとして着替え終わった時、温泉からあがってきた隣のロッカーの女性が、服を取ろうとして、いきなり倒れて来ました。

目を開けたまま 倒れていました。
とっさに私のコートを彼女の体にかけました。
意識がない?感じで目を開いてて、何度か声をかけると、意識が戻りました。

寝たままで、「貧血気味で。。」と、暫くして言われて、私の友人が温泉施設の人を呼びに行きました。暫くして落ち着いて来られたので、
「時々 こういう風に倒れたりされるのですか?」と聞くと、
「いいえ、初めてです」と、言われました。

。。。。。やっぱり、、大丸1大丸1️ではないかと思いましたが、とても言えませんでした。」

Nさんは、優しいです。突撃レポート、とてもためになりますが、危険なことは止めてください。次はNさんが倒れる番かもしれません。

女性の卒倒はたまたまの出来事だと思いたいですが、前日来の線量率上昇の中で出歩いたりしていれば、倒れることもありうるでしょうね。被爆蓄積のある方は、吸気被曝が加わって新たな症状が現れることがあります。

‘Arrogant’ Saudi Arabia fails to hurt Hezbollah with Hariri gambit, but won’t stop trying

この記事は英語も内容も少しわかりにくいです。

‘Arrogant’ Saudi Arabia fails to hurt Hezbollah with Hariri gambit, but won’t stop trying
Riyadh’s attempt to assert control in Lebanon and open up a new front against Hezbollah and Iran has brought little return, but substantial reputational damage. But does Saudi Arabia even care about playing geopolitical chess, or does it just want to fling pieces at its adversaries?

The road trip-slash-conspiracy thriller that began with Saad Hariri’s surprise resignation as Lebanese Prime Minister from Saudi Arabia on November 4 is by no means over: Perhaps Emmanuel Macron will help Hariri hold on to his position by mediating the crisis in Paris this weekend, or maybe the trip to France is merely the beginning of his exile. And even if Hariri does return to Beirut to the embrace of sympathetic locals, victimhood is not always the easiest route to retaining power.

Hariri ‘weak’ in reining in Hezbollah

Yet, it is already obvious that whatever Saudi Arabia had in mind when it reportedly took away Hariri’s phone, put him under house arrest, and gave him a speech to read, has not turned out as planned.

“Riyadh wanted to make Hariri resign, and make it look like the work of Hezbollah, while he would appear as the Sunni martyr of Shia machinations, prompting an outpouring of pity for him, and anger against Hezbollah, which would then be subject to international sanctions,” says Marianna Belenkaya, a Moscow-based Middle East analyst.

“The Saudis likely wanted to replace Hariri with his younger brother, Bahaa, who is more easily controlled,” says Ali Al-Ahmed Director of the Institute for Gulf Affairs in Washington DC. “But they did it in a macho and arrogant way, and it backfired.”

In the longer term, although he was largely seen as their protege, “the Saudis were displeased with Hariri’s weakness in the domestic arena,” says Alexei Sarabyev, from Moscow’s RAS Oriental Studies Institute. While the prime minister was credited for brokering a solution last year to the 29-month long “presidential vacuum” that paralyzed the country’s institutions, the compromise came at the cost of weakening the Sunni faction, and the appointment of Michel Aoun, a Hezbollah ally, to the presidency. A particular irritant to the House of Saud is the continued cooperation between the Lebanese army and Hezbollah’s militias, which has seen Riyadh’s and Washington’s aid and weapons being funnelled to prop up Bashar Assad in the Syrian conflict.

Hariri’s status was further undermined after the canceled parliamentary election this June following months of wrangling, with the key vote – the first since 2009 – now being moved to May 2018. Sarabyev believes that the final straw for Saudi Arabia may have come in display of acquiescence shown by Hariri during talks with an Iranian emissary in Beirut on November 2.

Nonetheless, Riyadh’s whole scheme was so ham-fisted it seems barely credible that anyone thought that it could work smoothly in the television age, never mind in an era of dozens of competing Arab-language news networks, and millions of tweets (Hariri himself has dismissed the speculation as “lies”).

Cornering Hariri, possibly blackmailing him over his family or Saudi-based business, forcing him to humiliatingly parrot strident anti-Iran rhetoric that sounded like it came directly from the mouth of a Saudi royal, and then wheeling him out again for a disjointed and stiff interview days later were not obvious diplomatic masterstrokes.
Israel and US stay at arm’s length

Donald Trump’s White House is the most anti-Tehran administration in decades, and considers Hezbollah terrorists, but even they could not go with the power play, while most Arab allies decided to sit out the affair.

The early days of the crisis also produced speculation of an uneasy but motivated alliance between Israel and Saudi Arabia, with observers suggesting that the Israeli Defence Forces could even invade Lebanon, doing Riyadh’s dirty work for it and weakening Israel’s sworn enemy Hezbollah in one fell swoop. However, events have shown that Israel does not currently desire a repeat of the traumatic 2006 war, or the dismantling of the UN-backed peace deal that has kept hostilities between adversaries at bay, even if it still regards Hezbollah an extension of Iran’s existential threat.

The worst of the impact of the ploy was counter-productively on Lebanon. What better way to turn a divided multi-religious country against you than to show that its leader is a puppet that can literally be made to say anything? Hariri’s resignation has not been accepted by the president, while the foreign minister made a pointed reference that Lebanese politics was “not like trading sheep.” Notably, both the Saudi-aligned politicians and Iranian-backed ones demanded that Hariri returned, and none even humored Riyadh’s assertion that he voluntarily decided to stay away from his own country in the midst of a major political crisis. While before Hariri’s political coalition was falling apart, in the last weeks there have been mass demonstrations in his support.

The Saudis and their close allies – Kuwait, UAE and Bahrain – have doubled down, telling citizens to leave Lebanon, potentially impacting its tourist industry. Lebanese officials have also implied that it is putting behind-the-scenes economic pressure on the country, including preventing a potential joint gas project with Russia.

Its next moves would risk escalating the crisis by a magnitude – calling for Lebanon’s Arab League membership to be withdrawn, or a blockade scenario along the Qatari lines. Another potential measure would be to ban the Lebanese from working in Saudi Arabia, which could deprive the struggling Mediterranean state of up to $8 billion a year in remittances.

On the other hand, if, as Hariri recited in both his recent public appearances, if Hezbollah gives up its weapons, and agrees not to participate in any affairs outside Lebanon’s borders, the conflict will be finished. Arab officials say Hariri himself could be allowed to stay on.

But is the stick or the carrot likely to work?

In all likelihood, no, and this is something Hariri, despite holding Saudi citizenship, and considering the Saudi King to be “like a father,” understands well. Hezbollah is deeply entrenched in all aspects of the country’s society. It has a civilian party, and a militia that matches the national army for capacity, and outstrips it for experience, with recent involvement in the Syrian conflict, as well as its constant battle-readiness for a war with Israel. It is both a part of the state where over a quarter of the population are Shia, and a state-within-a-state that takes over the government’s role in provision of key services in areas that it controls.

“Hezbollah hasn’t been in open conflict with anyone in domestic politics for an extended time,” says Sarabyev. “Their internal policies are nuanced and balanced, and they present themselves as a guarantor of the country’s national security, and the indirect threat from Riyadh is playing into that image, giving them another trump card.”

With its gambit going nowhere, and the passage of time turning the affair into a dangerous charade for no ostensible gain, no wonder that Riyadh is now spitting fury, claiming that “enough is enough.”
Riyadh’s blue-blooded privilege

But to interpret the entire Hariri affair as a failure for Saudi Arabia would be to misread the motivations and behavior of the country that regards itself as the rightful and blue-blooded ruler of the region, unbothered with the opinion of its minions.

After all, did Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the 32-year-old who has ruled the country in all but name in the last few years, and could become king even before his 81-year-old father, King Salman, dies, ever care about nuance? When the country started the blockade of Yemen that could turn into the greatest humanitarian catastrophe since the turn of the millennium? When insisting Doha close its TV channels? Or even internally, when he jailed members of his own family, or allegedly offered them to go free if they gave up the majority of their wealth?

Saudi Arabia is trying to assert its power in the region by whatever means possible, whether using hard power, or soft power that threatens to turn into economic or real warfare. In the recent key major conflicts in Iraq and Syria, it is the Shia factions that have come out on top, and the Sunni ones that have been defeated, even if not all were officially endorsed by Riyadh. The oil-rich country, albeit straitened by the recent low hydrocarbon prices, is playing catch-up.

In fact the biggest concern is not the current ineffectual meddling, but the thought that one day Saudi foreign policy may grow less inept and more strategic. When Riyadh creates its own proxy Hezbollah-style movements with grassroots support, and begins to effectively challenge Iran in an ever-growing number of states, then the circus with of the Hariri resignation could come to seem like a fond memory.

リビアの奴隷オークションに反対するパリの抗議集団を追い払うため警察が催涙ガスを使用

French police use tear gas to disperse protest against slave auctions in Libya (VIDEO)
Hundreds of activists flocked to the Libyan Embassy in Paris on Saturday, outraged with the government’s failure to tackle people smuggling after a CCN report unveiled a network of migrant slave auctions in Libya.

About a thousand people turned up to the protest following calls by several prominent anti-slavery groups and a number of celebrities of African origin, including soccer star Didier Drogba and former Miss France Sonia Rolland.

Carrying signs reading “No to slavery in Libya,” the demonstrators gathered in front of the Libyan Embassy on Saturday afternoon before marching towards the Champs-Elysees, where they were stopped by riot police cordons.

“Free our brothers,” “Let’s liberate Africa,” “We are black, we are human!” the demonstrators chanted.

Clashes broke out as police moved to disperse the protest. Some activists began hurling rocks at police, who responded with tear gas.

A Ruptly crew was on the spot to film as activists attempted to break through metal barriers erected by police.

One person was arrested following the scuffles, AFP reports. Police say the protest was illegitimate, adding that “no damage” resulted from the clashes.

Earlier this week, the Libyan government launched a probe into slave auctions operating in the country, including areas controlled by the UN-backed internationally-recognized Government of National Accord, after CNN showed footage of migrants being sold at a location outside Tripoli.

CNN claims in the report that men were priced at as little as $400, and that auctions are being carried out at many sites across Libya each month.

Libya has become the last stop on the route to Europe for migrants fleeing war, persecution, and poverty in their home countries, with the ongoing political chaos allowing people smugglers to thrive in the country, ravaged by civil war.

US Marine kills elderly civilian in drunk-driving accident in Okinawa, Japan
A US military truck collided with a light vehicle in Okinawa, Japan, killing an elderly civilian, local media reports. The driver, allegedly a member of the US Marine Corps, was drunk at the moment of the crash and is being questioned.

On Sunday morning, the driver of a US military truck reportedly violated traffic regulations, running a red light and crashing into a light vehicle at an intersection in Naha, the capital of Okinawa Prefecture, according to NHK. The Japanese driver, 61, of the civilian truck was taken unconscious to a local hospital, where he died an hour and a half later.

Okinawa police confirmed initial local media reports that the man who caused the accident was a member of the US Marine Corps, according to AP. The breath alcohol test of the military truck driver showed the level of alcohol three times above the legal limit. The man did not sustain any serious injuries and is now being questioned.

Last year, thousands of American sailors stationed on the island were prohibited from drinking alcohol following a drunk-driving accident caused by a US Marine. The ban was preceded by two other scandals involving the murder and rape of two young Japanese women by US servicemen in Okinawa.

The controversial US military presence on the southern Japanese island often meets stiff opposition from the population and triggers large-scale protests. Okinawa Governor Takeshi Onaga has also opposed the US military presence on the archipelago.

There are around 100,000 US personnel in Japan, including 54,000 military personnel, 42,000 dependents, and 8,000 civilian employees of the department of defense. Okinawa hosts half of the military personnel, according to the official website of the US Forces Japan.

North Africa Facing Threat of ISIL Terrorists Fleeing Iraq, Syria

North Africa Facing Threat of ISIL Terrorists Fleeing Iraq, Syria
TEHRAN (FNA)- Algerian Foreign Minister Abd-el-Kader Messahel said that North Africa is under threat from foreign fighters of the ISIL escaping Iraq and Syria.

"The region is threatened... with the return of foreign fighters," said Messahel, Islam Times reported.

"The signs and reports say the return will be in our region," Messahel said at a news conference in Cairo after a meeting with his Egyptian and Tunisian counterparts, Sameh Shoukry and Khemaies Jhinaoui, over Libya.

After its explosive rise in 2014 and conquest of vast swathes of territory in Syria and Iraq, ISIL established a "caliphate" that attracted thousands of foreign fighters.

But a string of losses this year have left the terrorists clinging on to pockets of territory in Iraq and Syria.

ISIL terrorist group draws it inspiration from Wahhabism, the official sect of Saudi Arabia which espouses extremist ideas responsible for the emergence of many other terrorist groups such as al-Qaeda, Boko Haram, al Shabab and Taliban.

エルドアン NATOにとって敵の協力者とノルウェー人に名指しされて激怒

Turkey Sees ‘International Cooperation’ against Erdogan
TEHRAN (FNA)- Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag said on Saturday there is an “international cooperation” against the country's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

"This international cooperation reached a level that gave a soldier courage to show the founder and current leader of a NATO country as an enemy target during an exercise," said Bozdag speaking to reporters in Southeastern Sirnak, Anadolu reported.

Turkey withdrew from the Trident Javelin exercise after a civilian Norwegian official depicted Turkish Erdogan as an "enemy collaborator" during a bloc exercise in Norway.

On Friday, Erdogan told ruling Justice and Development (AK) Party members in capital Ankara that a portrait of Turkey’s founder Mustafa Kemal Ataturk was also shown in the ‘hostile leader list’ during the computer-assisted exercise.

"Until now NATO has not seen a scandal like this. Neither the world did," Bozdag said, adding that NATO should take necessary steps that will prevent such incidents in the future.

Bozdag welcomed the removal of those responsible from the incident and the apology of NATO secretary-general. However, he added that those who run NATO also have responsibility to take.

A Norwegian national was removed from the exercise as a consequence of the incident.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and Norwegian Defense Minister Frank Bakke-Jensen have apologized to Turkey over the incident.

Erdogan accuses US of financing ISIS, breaking promises in Syria

RT2017/11/18
Erdogan accuses US of financing ISIS, breaking promises in Syria
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has accused Washington of betraying Ankara and providing "a lot of dollars" to the Islamic State terrorists. The allegation comes just days after the US acknowledged that it allowed hundreds of armed ISIS militants to escape the besieged Syrian city of Raqqa.

"That's the headline. But what did you do? You paid a lot of dollars to [ISIS]," Erdogan said, as cited by AFP.

It’s not the first time Erdogan has called out Washington for enabling terrorists. Last December, the Turkish president caused quite a stir in the media, claiming that Turkey had “confirmed evidence, with pictures, photos and videos,” of the US supporting Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS, ISIL) and Kurdish militias, outlawed as terrorist in Turkey.

Erdogan's comments come just days after the BBC revealed on Monday that the US-backed SDF allowed hundreds of ISIS militants to escape Raqqa with the silent approval of their coalition allies that preferred not to intervene. Truck drivers interviewed by the BBC said they were offered thousands of dollars to secretly transport ISIS fighters and “tons of weapons and ammunition” out of the city. At the time of the exodus, neither SDF, nor the coalition acknowledged their involvement in the deal, reportedly struck by local officials mid-October.

When confronted by the BBC, US-led coalition spokesman Col Ryan Dillon admitted that “a Western officer” was present as the deal was being arranged, but “didn’t take an “active part” in the talks, he told the BBC. While the extent of the US involvement in the deal is up to speculation, Dillon noted that part of the agreement was to allow the coalition to screen the “ISIS-aged males” and civilians. However, only four “foreign fighters” were detained by the SDF from some 3,500 people, 300 of which were identified as “potential ISIS fighters,” Dilon said.

Then on Tuesday,Moscow accused US forces of refusing to carry out airstrikes against ISIS convoys retreating from the eastern Syrian city of Abu-Kamal. The Russian Ministry of Defense stated that it twice asked the US-led coalition to strike the convoys with the US side “categorically refusing” to do so, the ministry said, attaching photos purportedly showing ISIS convoys leaving the city unhindered.

Aside from sparing the ISIS militants, the coalition warplanes have also been hampering the Russian Air Force’s operation in support of the Syrian military, the ministry claimed, noting that in accordance with the prior agreement the coalition aircraft should not have been flying in the area.

This is hardly the first time Moscow has accused Washington of tolerating ISIS’s presence in Syria. In September, Russia’s Defense Ministry has released aerial images allegedly proving that US Army special units provide free passage for the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) through the battle formations of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) terrorists.

The Turkish president also slammed Washington for its ongoing support of Kurdish groups fighting in Syria − despite promises that they would be withdrawn from liberated cities.

"It was a big disappointment for us that America has not kept its promises, to a large extent, since the start of the Syrian crisis," said Erdogan, claiming that the previous US administration pledged to not let YPG fighters to take Raqqa, Manbij and Deir ez-Zor.

"We don't want to enter into the same game in Afrin. A problem that we could solve quite easily together as allies is being dragged out by American intransigence," he added, as cited by AFP.

Disagreements over the status and future of Syria's Kurds have strained relations between Ankara and Washington. Turkey views the Kurdish YPG militia, which is backed by the US-led coalition, as a terrorist organization.

Washington has stressed that while it’s aware of Turkey’s security concerns, its policy of arming the Kurds is “necessary to ensure a clear victory” in Raqqa.

Ankara claims that the US-backed YPG is not fighting ISIS in Raqqa but instead aiming to capture the city and “engaged in regional cooperation” with the so-called caliphate.

More recently, Erdogan has warned that the Turkish military may intervene to close the "terrorist corridor" in Syria's Afrin region, which borders Turkey and is currently controlled by Kurdish groups.

'Syria chemical weapons probe poisoned by new Russia-US Cold War'

'Fictitious probe, baseless accusations': Russia blocks new extension of Syria chemical inquiry
The UN Security Council has failed to adopt a new resolution on the extension of the UN-OPCW The Joint Investigative Mechanism (JIM) on chemical weapons attacks in Syria. Russia and Bolivia voted against Japan's new draft.

The draft envisioned a "technical" extension of the JIM probe for 30 days, during which the UN would work out proposals on how the probe could go on in a manner that would satisfy all the Security Council members.

"Any extension of the JIM mandate is only possible for us if the fundamental flaws in its work are rectified," Russian UN envoy Vassily Nebenzia commented after the vote.

"There can be no other way after the JIM’s leadership disgraced itself with its fictitious investigation into the sarin use incident in Khan Shaykhun and signed off on baseless accusations against Syria.

"I'm not sure that those who are so fervently condemning Russia now have read the JIM report itself or our comments on it."

The JIM has been investigating alleged chemical weapons attacks in Syria, including the April incident in Khan Shaykhun in Idlib province which killed about 100 people. JIM's reports have essentially been backing Washington's outright accusations against the Assad government, made straight away before any hard evidence had been discovered.

Russia has repeatedly criticized the JIM mission for doing a lackluster job, failing to investigate the site of the attack itself and instead relying on unverifiable testimonies of unidentified individuals. It suggests the Khan Shaykhun incident could be the result of an explosion of a chemical agent warehouse stockpiled by militants, or a false flag operation by anti-Assad rebels.

Without an extension, the JIM mandate ends on Friday, after the UN Security Council failed to agree on its extension in the previous session. On Thursday, Russia and the US both put forward rival resolutions on the JIM mission. Russia vetoed the American draft, but its own proposal subsequently failed to gain enough votes.

Russia's UN envoy slammed the US draft as "unbalanced," saying its only goal was to “question the role of Russia in the process of Syrian political settlement.” Moscow's counter-proposal, he argued, was solely “aimed at the extension and qualitative improvement” of the JIM probe.

In reply, the US representative accused Moscow of “undermining” the UN’s ability to prevent chemical attacks in the future.

'Syria chemical weapons probe poisoned by new Russia-US Cold War'
The way the OPCW-UN's investigated the chemical incident in Syria is clearly not what the world expects when it sets up an agency to investigate events like this, and wants to be able to rely on it, says Nicolas J. S. Davies, author of Blood On Our Hands.

Russia on Thursday vetoed a US draft resolution at the UN Security Council to extend the work of a joint inquiry into the Khan Shaykhun chemical attack in Syria earlier this year.

RT: Why do you think the US and Russia failed to agree on this issue?

Nicolas Davies: It’s very hard to understand what has gone wrong with the OPCW investigation here. I mean the inspectors didn’t go within a 100 kilometer of the site, presumably because it’s too dangerous for them because that area is controlled by rebels linked to Al-Qaeda. Yet, they trusted the same rebels to gather samples and have custody of all the physical evidence they then examined, which is a complete violation of the OPCW’s rules for handling materials like that and for conducting an investigation.

Then in the report, they issued they seemingly ignored all the contrary evidence that suggested there might have been some other cause for these deaths of 82 people – possibly a bomb hitting another building nearby that was that was storing pesticides – that is one of the theories. But clearly that is not what the world expects of the OPCW or of the UNSC. When the world signs an international treaty and establishes an agency to investigate an incident like this, we expect to be able to rely on it, to conduct its investigations with integrity and to hear from experts from all sides and all points of view. This clearly didn’t happen. There are American experts challenging this … John Gilbert, who used to work for the Defense Department, I believe. So we haven’t had the kind of thorough investigation of this incident that all those ambassadors sitting on the UNSC should be demanding and should expect.

RT: Do you think we’ll ever get to the bottom of what actually happened in Syria following this latest disagreement at the UNSC?

ND: I don’t know. This just seems to be poisoned by what people are calling a new Cold War between the US and Russia. Frankly, the hostility seems to becoming much more from the American side then the Russian side. But it really threatens the whole world. We’ve got the two countries with more of 90 percent of the nuclear weapons in the world that seem to be on a collision course. At the same time, we have a crisis on the Korean peninsula, where essentially the North Koreans have come to believe that the only way they can keep their own people safe is to develop weapons that threaten the lives of millions of Americans.

We have to acknowledge that this is just a breakdown in the rule of international law, in the world, and this has really developed for the most part since 9/11, and since the US invasions of Afghanistan, and Iraq and serial US acts of aggression against country after country, for which there has been no legal or political accountability whatsoever…

管理人の場合 機密情報はいくつあるか セキュリティ対策は必要か

アンチウィルスソフト企業カスペルスキーを巡る米国の嫌がらせに関する情報が2017/11/17にも流れていました。

カスペルスキーのソフトを入れましたが、よくよく考えると、そもそも管理人は機密情報はもちろん、個人情報もほとんど持っていないのです。

個人情報からあげると
@ ブログにコメントを寄せた方の名前、メールアドレス、発信元のIPアドレス
これはさくらのブログのサーバーに記録されており、管理人のPCの中には保存していません。一部、公表しないコメントなどについてメモとしてPCに保存しているものがあります。数は極めて限定的です。
管理人のPCからブログ管理画面に入れば、ブログに記録されたこれらの情報を閲覧したり、複写することは可能です。コメントの累計は7,700件ほど。ただし、コメント主の実数は5分の1か、6分の1でしょう。複数回コメントしてくれる方のものが圧倒的な割合です。
名前は実名ではなくハンドルネームです。実名で書いていただいた時も、管理人が修正しています。
コメント主が書き込むメールアドレスは、ダミーのものもありますし、Gmailやhotmail、yahoomailのものが半分程度でしょうか。これらのメールアドレスを盗み見て、スパムメールを送り付ける人もいるかもしれませんが、このブログの読者を狙ってスパムメールを送り付けてもまず効果はないでしょう。
Gmailやhotmail、yahoomailは、パスワードが解読されると、そのメールアドレスで発信することができます。これが最も危険です。

IPアドレスも、実は重要な情報です。ネット上のPCを特定するのがIPアドレスですから、ハッキングを仕掛けようとする場合には、まずIPアドレスを知る必要があるのです。
コメントで狙いをつけた相手にハッキングしようとする場合、まず管理人のPCのIPアドレスを知り、これに侵入しさくらのブログの管理画面に入って狙いをつけたコメント主のコメントを探し出してIPアドレスを知るという前段の手続きが必要になります。

管理人は、他のサイトなどに極力コメントしないようにしています。IPアドレスを知られてしまうからです。記事内容の転載許可をもらう場合などやむを得ない場合だけに限定しています。

ですから、まず管理人のPCにアクセスすることが困難なはずです。そしてハッキングして中に入り・・・という段階を踏みますから、ブログの中のコメントを上の手順でハッキングしようとする人はいないでしょう。ハッキングしたら特別な情報が得られそうな読者がいるとは失礼ながらお見受けしていませんし。

A 管理人のPCの中にある電子メールのアドレス帳を見る。
まず管理人のPCのハッキングに手間がかかります。そして、管理人はそんなに多数の方とメールをやり取りしていません。今なら同報メールのアドレス帳に少しアドレスがたまっていますが、これも数としては知れたもの。特にお金持ちの人たちとみられるような集団なら別でしょうが、100前後のメールリストを得るためなら別のもっと容易な方法があります。

B 個人情報としては、あとは自分自身の情報ですが、知られて困るのは、さくらのサーバー、ブログのIDとログインパスワード。クレジットカードの情報、インターネットバンキングをしている銀行の口座番号と名義、パスワード。健康保険証の番号、マイナンバーなどですが、PCの中のファイルには極力書かないようにしています。ソフトの設定などで書き込まれたものだけが中に記録されています。

今回のセキュリティ対策強化でパスワードなどの整理をしました。いったん一覧性のリストを作り、これは紙に印刷して保有。キーボードからの打ち込みが面倒なものは、電子ファイルを呼び出して該当部分をコピーします。電子ファイルには何のID、パスワードかわからないように番号で整理し、紙のリストと照らしてはじめてわかるようにしています。まあ、数が少ないので全部試してもそんなに手間はかからないのが難点です。

以上が個人情報関係。それほど危険にさらされているということでもないかもしれません。

ブログのコンテンツ関係
C データが消えて一番困るのは、人口動態統計をはじめとしたこれまでに蓄積したデータです。原資料に当たって復元できるものもありますが、手間が大変です。情報入手先にはすでに掲載されていないものもあります。

ランサムウェアは、データを暗号変換して解除のためにはビットコインを支払えと要求してくるそうです。身代金が用意できなければ、データは使えません。

このウィルスないしはマルウェアに関しては、どこか怪しげなサイトを訪問した時にもらってくる恐れがあります。クッキーというパソコン特定のための情報をPCの中に取り込んでしまうこともあります。訪問先のサイトは、こちらのIPアドレスを把握します。

EASYCOUNTERというサイトがグローバルランクという遊びのランキングを作っていることは以前に紹介しましたが、このサイトは有害サイトです。カスペルスキーを導入してからこのサイトにはアクセスできなくなりました。(アクセスできなくなったのは、これまでのところこのサイト一つだけです。そんなにおかしな怪しげなところは見ていない?)

D ブログのコンテンツのバックアップ
文章はバックアップを取っています。画像はレンタルサーバーに置いています。アプロードした画像はPCの中にもあります。
こちらは、文章のバックアップをしっかり保存することでまず問題ないかと思います。

上のように見てくると、Cの蓄積データの保存、バックアップが少し危ういです。DVDに自動保存していますが、復元したことはまだありません。本当に復元できるのか。

今確認したらドキュメントが全体で17ギガバイトでした。今は28ギガバイトで3千円ほどのUSBメモリーがあります。これにまるごとコピーできそうですから、その方法も併用することにします。

最後に機密情報について
読者はよくおわかりでしょうが、このブログには機密情報は載っていませんし載ることはありません。政府機関や政府機関、特殊機関の職員から入手したような情報はありません。

すべて公開情報です。一部読者から非公開の情報が寄せられることがありますが、インテリジェンスの機関が入手して喜ぶような情報だとは到底考えていません。

管理人のPCをハッキングしても何も得るものはない、というのが結論です。はい、お疲れさまでした。

レバノン ロシアとのガスプロジェクトを破棄するよう脅しを受ける

RT2017/11/17
Lebanon suffers intimidation attempts to cancel gas deal with Russia – Lebanese FM
Lebanese Minister for Foreign Affairs Gebran Bassil has said that there is currently an anti-Lebanon campaign in the Middle East, aimed at "intimidating" his country and forcing it to give up a joint gas project with Russia.

Beirut has faced certain difficulties in the course of its own efforts to “stabilize the region,” the Lebanese foreign minister said on Friday, ahead of his talks with Russian counterpart, Sergey Lavrov in Moscow. He revealed that, prior to the current crisis, Lebanon was "almost at a threshold of the first-ever contract to develop shale-gas fields with... Russian companies." However, a campaign to hinder the deal "under various pretexts" is now underway, he claimed.

"Some countries are trying to use certain forces to remove the head of Lebanon," he said.

"The same forces that unleashed the war in Syria and those who are feeding into terrorists are now trying to damage Lebanon," Bassil said in an interview with Interfax news agency. The minister added he would not specify which countries those forces represent.

Stating that a "campaign to intimidate Lebanon" had been launched, Bassil said that Beirut hopes Moscow would intensify its efforts aimed at "providing a balance of forces" in the region. Russia has always played a "great role" in fighting terrorism and de-escalating conflicts, he added.

"We count on further bilateral cooperation, and also on [working] on other issues, including restoring [peace] in Syria," Bassil told Russia's senior diplomat. Sergey Lavrov said Moscow stands for solving Lebanese issues through legal means, but without interference from the outside. Stressing that Russia wholly supports Lebanon's "sovereignty, unity and territorial integrity," the head of the Russian foreign ministry said that "the most important thing" for the Middle-Eastern country is to resolve issues "through dialogue" and considering the interests of all leading political forces.

Earlier this month, Lebanese Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri abruptly resigned in a surprise announcement made during a visit to Saudi Arabia. The politician also accused Iran and Lebanon-based group Hezbollah of a "desire to destroy the Arab world." Riyadh's role in the ongoing Lebanese political crisis remains obscure, but the president of Lebanon, Michel Aoun, has stated that Hariri is being "detained" by the Saudis.

Riyadh has said its policy is a reaction to Iranian "aggression," but claimed Hariri's resignation was his own decision. Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir stated the kingdom had decided to take action in response to what it called the increasingly aggressive behavior of Tehran in the region, particularly in Yemen and Lebanon.

In a new twist this week, plans were revealed for Hariri to leave Saudi Arabia for France before traveling to Beirut. The Lebanese politician has accepted the invitation of French President Emmanuel Macron, who insisted it was not an offer of political exile. On Friday, the Elysee Palace announced Macron is scheduled to meet Hariri on November 18.

Beirut hopes Hariri will return to Lebanon after his French visit, Bassil said on Friday. Stressing that "the main task" now is to provide for the politician's safe return without any conditions and restrictions on his freedom, the head of the Lebanese Foreign Ministry said that Hariri should make a final decision on resignation while being present in Beirut.

アンチウィルスソフトは Kaspersky で決まりか

Stuxnet:スタックスネット (W32/Stuxnet) は、Microsoft Windowsで動作するコンピュータワームであり、2010年6月に発見された。 インターネットから隔離されたスタンドアローンのコンピュータ・システムにも、USBストレージを経由するという手段により感染する。

米国の政府機関がカスペルスキーのアンチウィルスソフトを排除する策に出たのは、CIAの作成したマルウェアなどを探り当て対処策を講じたことに腹を立てたかららしい。ということは、他のアンチウィルスソフトでは、CIAが作り出したウィルスなどのワクチンとしては有効でないということになる。

‘Kaspersky Lab in crosshairs since exposing US & Israeli spies behind Stuxnet’ – fmr MI5 agent

The campaign to discredit Kaspersky Lab dates back to 2010, when the Russian based cybersecurity firm uncovered the origin of the Stuxnet malicious computer worm which ruined Iran's nuclear centrifuges, experts in the field told RT.

Kaspersky Lab, founded in Moscow in 1997, has been a world leader in cybersecurity for decades, taking pride in working outside of any government’s sphere of influence. US intelligence agencies, however, seem to consider the Russian firm a competitive challenge, cybersecurity experts told RT.

Kaspersky is highly reputable. It has been operating for a couple of decades. It has 400 million users around the world, including until very recently the American government,” former MI5 analyst Annie Machon told RT. “So of course if they are doing it, other countries are going to do it to a competitor corporation around the world too. Obviously, the CIA would be interested in a very successful Russian based company that offers protection on the internet.”

“Kaspersky [has] one of the most successful security teams worldwide. Don’t forget that Kaspersky was the security firm that first of all discovered the NSA linked group of activities involved in cyber espionage activities worldwide,” Pierluigi Paganini, the head of cybersecurity at Grant Thornton Consultants, told RT.

The Russian company became one of the targets amidst the ongoing anti-Russian hysteria in the US, which centers around the unproven allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 US presidential elections. In September, the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) ordered all government agencies to stop using Kaspersky products and remove them from computers, citing “security risks.”

And while Kaspersky Lab is actively cooperating with the US authorities, on Thursday, WikiLeaks published a source code for the CIA hacking tool ‘Hive,’ which was used by US intelligence agencies to imitate the Kaspersky Lab code and leave behind false digital fingerprints. Exposing the CIA’s impersonation of Kaspersky Lab is just a part of WikiLeaks’ Vault 7 and 8 revelations which shed light on the CIA’s electronic surveillance methods and cyber warfare tools.

“What is important in this specific story is the complexity, the effort spent by the US intelligence to make hard the attribution. Kaspersky is the actual victim of these activities. There is a government agency, the CIA that conducted cyber espionage activities to also use false flag in its operation in order to make harder the attribution,” Paganini explained.

Kaspersky Lab remains one of the few companies in the world that can expose the CIA’s scheming, and that is why the Russian company is facing so much backlash, Machon believes.

“We have Kaspersky saying 'We can do this-we can prove some of these hacks are not Russian, they are American’ when it comes to the presidential elections. And so they needed to discredit them, and I think that this new application of a virus at state level, a very aggressive virus that would discredit a very proven brand around the world it’s exactly what the Americans would want and the Israelis also would want,” the former MI5 operative pointed out.

The campaign against the Russian cybersecurity firm goes back to 2010, when Kaspersky Lab revealed the origin of the Stuxnet virus, Machon told RT. Back then, Kaspersky Labs stated that “this type of attack could only be conducted with nation-state support and backing.” Nobody officially claimed responsibility for the creation of the complex cyber weapon that targeted industrial control systems, used in infrastructure facilities, to affect their automated processes. However, it is widely believed that US and Israeli intelligence agencies were behind Stuxnet, which reportedly ruined almost one-fifth of Iran’s nuclear centrifuges used to develop civilian atomic power.

“Stuxnet was deployed against the centrifuges that enriched the uranium and nobody knew where it came from. It seemed to be very weaponized at the state level. And it was actually Kaspersky that unveiled who had developed it. And it was American and the Israeli intelligence agencies,” Machon told RT. “So ever since then, it has sort of been daggers drawn between these two competing sides [Kaspersky vs CIA]. Kaspersky has been very much in crosshairs of both American and Israeli intelligence agencies.”

Kaspersky Lab under attack as it found something the US didn't like – company head
Russian cybersecurity company Kaspersky Lab has fallen victim to a witch hunt in the US just because it did its job too well, the company’s CEO, Eugene Kaspersky, said. He added that his firm might have stumbled upon some secret US business.

The whole situation around the US ban on the use of Kaspersky Lab antivirus products by federal agencies “looks very strange,” Kaspersky told Germany’s Die Zeit daily, adding that the whole issue in fact lacks substance. “It was much more hype and noise than real action,” he said.

Kaspersky then explained that the US authorities ordered all governmental agencies to remove all the company’s software from their computers, even though “we had almost zero installations there.” With little real need for such measures, they were apparently aimed at damaging the company’s reputation.

“It seems that we just do our job better than others and that made someone very disappointed,” Kaspersky said of the motives behind the US government’s move. “It seems that we detected some unknown or probably very well-known malware that made someone in the US very disappointed.”

At the same time, he stressed that his company does not collect “any sensitive personal data,” not to mention any classified documents, adding that the only data Kaspersky Lab is hunting for is “new types of malware, unknown or suspicious apps.”

The Russian cybersecurity company was indeed accused by the US media of using its software to collect the NSA technology for the Russian government – something that Kaspersky Lab vehemently denied.

According to US media reports in October 2017, an employee from the National Security Agency (NSA) elite hacking unit lost some of the agency's espionage tools after storing them on his home computer in 2015. The media jumped to blame Kaspersky Lab and the Kremlin.

Following the reports, the company conducted an internal investigation and stumbled upon an incident dating back to 2014. At the time, Kaspersky Lab was investigating the activities of the Equation Group – a powerful group of hackers that later was identified as an arm of the NSA.

As part of Kaspersky’s investigation, it analyzed information received from a computer of an unidentified user, who is alleged to be the security service employee in question. It turned out that the user installed pirated software containing Equation malware, then “scanned the computer multiple times,” which resulted in antivirus software detecting suspicious files, including a 7z archive.

“The archive itself was detected as malicious and submitted to Kaspersky Lab for analysis, where it was processed by one of the analysts. Upon processing, the archive was found to contain multiple malware samples and source code for what appeared to be Equation malware,” the company’s October statement explained.

The analyst then reported the matter directly to Eugene Kaspersky, who ordered the company’s copy of the code to be destroyed.

On Thursday, Kaspersky Lab issued another statement concerning this incident following a more extensive investigation. The results of the investigation showed that the computer in question was infected with several types of malware in addition to the one created by Equation. Some of this malware provided access to the data on this computer to an “unknown number of third parties.”

In particular, the computer was infected with backdoor malware called Mokes, which is also known as Smoke Bot and Smoke Loader. It is operated by an organization called Zhou Lou, based in China.

Kaspersky Lab, a world leader in cybersecurity founded in Moscow in 1997, has been under pressure in the US for years. It repeatedly faced allegations of ties to the Kremlin, though no smoking gun has ever been produced.

In July, Kaspersky offered to hand over source code for his software to the US government, but wasn't taken up on the offer. In October, the cybersecurity company pledged to reveal its code to independent experts as part of an unprecedented Global Transparency Initiative aimed at staving off US accusations.

Kaspersky has been swept up in the ongoing anti-Russian hysteria in the US, which centers on the unproven allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential elections. In September, the US government banned federal agencies from using Kaspersky Lab antivirus products, citing concerns that it could jeopardize national security and claiming the company might have links to the Kremlin. Eugene Kaspersky denounced the move as “baseless paranoia at best.”

Even as Kaspersky Lab is offering its cooperation to US authorities, on Thursday, WikiLeaks published source code for the CIA hacking tool “Hive,” which was used by US intelligence agencies to imitate the Kaspersky Lab code and leave behind false digital fingerprints.

The US might be targeting Kaspersky Lab in its witch hunt because the company might be able to disprove American allegations against Russia, experts told RT. “We have Kaspersky saying, 'We can do this. We can prove some of these hacks are not Russian, they are American,’ when it comes to the presidential elections. And so they needed to discredit them,” former MI5 analyst Annie Machon said.

The campaign against the Russian cybersecurity firm could go back as early as to 2010, when Kaspersky Lab revealed the origin of the Stuxnet virus that hit Iran's nuclear centrifuges, she told RT. Back then, Kaspersky Lab stated that “this type of attack could only be conducted with nation-state support and backing.” Nobody claimed responsibility for the creation of the malware that targeted Iran. However, it is widely believed that the US and Israeli intelligence agencies were behind Stuxnet.

地震にもびくともしない原発?浦項地震は「原発災害」の最後の警告状
専門家「原発事故」懸念は、「安全点検・耐震設計強化・ダウン」要求

レースと浦項に地震が相次いで発生し、地震発生地域の近くに密集し、原発安全性の問題に対する懸念が高まっている。韓国水力原子力発電所は、すべての原発が安全だという立場を明らかにしたが、専門家は「浦項地震は原発の最後の警告」と口をそろえた。

気象庁よると、15日午後2時30分頃、慶尚北道浦項市北区北9km地域で規模5.4の地震が発生した。浦項地震もレース地震に続いて量産断層帯で発生した。

量産断層一帯は蔚珍にハンウル原発6基、レースに月城‧新月性原発6基、釜山と蔚山にリング‧新古里原発6基の計18基の原発が運営しており、5基の原発が建設中である。浦項の地震規模5.4でレースの規模5.8の地震よりも少ないが、震源地の深さが8kmでレース地震当時震源の深さ15kmよりも浅く被害規模が大きかった。

環境運動連合によると、昨年のレース地震に続いて量産断層帯で発生した今回の地震で、量産断層帯が本格的な活動段階に入ったのでは懸念している。また震源地が低くなっていて、より危険な状況だと指摘した。環境運動連合は「今回の浦項地震とレース地震を含めて量産断層帯を含む最大地震の評価を適切にして耐震設計基準を定めている」と要求した。

もし原発地域に地震が発生した場合?

専門家は、浦項地震が原発があるところに発生した場合、原発の安全性を確保することができないと警告する。

両ウォンヨン環境運動連合脱核処長は「原発が揺れれば、最も問題になるのが(原発内部の)配管、弁が揺れながらねじったり割れたりしながら冷却にならず、核燃料が溶けて降り爆発する」とし「原発周辺に地滑りが起こることができるものであり、道路がクンギョソ原発事故の外部支援がない入ってくることもあり、地震は初期の原因であるだけで以来、津波による原発事故や原発内部の火災も起こることがある」と強調した。

柔らかい地盤であるほど地震に脆弱であるおそれもあった。これギムソンウクジアイ地盤研究所所長は「韓国の大部分は、原発が海岸段丘層の上にあり、原発の初期に良い立地に考えていた」と言いながらも "1990年以降に原発周辺地盤調査した結果活断層分布の発見頻度が高くなって、過去硬くした地盤この破砕薄くていた。これ原発敷地には適していなかったではないかという懸念がある」と指摘した。

格納建物は永遠に耐久である。

専門家は、原発の丸い屋根の格納建物の構造安全性評価が急がれると言う。また、格納建物の安全性も保証することはできないという声も出ている。

ギムソンウク所長は「原発地盤基礎の上に建てられた鉄筋コンクリートされた格納建物に耐震性能を向上させる方法は、実質的にない。格納建物をそのまま置いた周囲に補強材として挙げる投げ可能なことであるが、実際の補強材があることを確認することができない」としながらも「原発付属数千個以上の、最終的に全体を強化しなければかに可能なのかという疑問がする。主な機器だけ強化して、残りのものまでこれにより強化されたのかは知ることができない」と指摘した。

特に「格納建物のコンクリートは時間が経つにつれて弱くなる」とハンビット4号機のコンクリート空隙(内部穴)と鉄板の腐食などを言及して "不良施工問題だけでなく、コンクリートが劣化、すなわち自然に風化され発生したこと」と述べた。老朽化した原発の場合は、格納建物の腐食を見過ごすことはできないというものである。

原発の耐震設計の強化以前に現在の構造物の安全性を点検をしなければならないという意見もある。ハンビョンソプ原子力安全研究所(準)所長は「原発構造に関連して、原発の外部だけ目視検査に依存している。内部が老化さ、または、金があるのは見つけることができない」とし「内部がタマネギの皮のように割れている場合規模3.0の地震も原発の柱が躊躇座らないと断言することができるのか」と批判した。

続いて「鉄された配管などの機械は、耐震設計が可能ですが、老朽化し​​た構造物である壁や柱はコンクリート事実上、耐震設計を補強するのが意味がない」とし「耐震設計強化前に現在の構造物を点検を必ずしなければならない」と主張しした。

現在の耐震設計設定基準は、我が国に最適?

また、専門家は、地震を経験した後、、過去の耐震設計の設定に基づいて原発の安全性を測定することができないと指摘する。耐震設計の設定基準は、歴史地震の記録と契機地震記録、活動性断層を用いた最大の地震の評価だ。韓国ウォンの前に量産断層帯をはじめとする、アクティブな断層帯を評価から排除した。また、きっかけ地震でレース地震より低い双渓寺地震(規模5.1)を利用したことが分かった。

両ウォンヨン処長は、国会サンジャウィオウォンシク加え、民主党議員が浦項地震発生と関連し、韓国ガス公社から提出された地震加速度観測値のデータを言及して "地震の規模は5.5であるが震源地で2.6km離れた韓国ガス公社興海所で測定された最大地盤加速度は576行く(gal)で約0.58gにのぼる」とし「この一帯の原発の耐震設計は、新古里3号機を除いてすべての地震の規模6.5に対応する0.2gである。新古里3号機と建設中の原発は地震の規模7.0に該当する0.3gしかない」と批判した。今回発生した浦項地震最大地盤加速度に比べると耐震設計の基準が非常に低い水準という指摘だ。

環境市民団体は浦項地震後、原発が安全ではない声明を相次いで発表し、原発の稼働停止を要求した。

核のない社会のための共同行動は16日、ソウル光化門広場で開かれた「安全がまず、原子力発電所停止緊急記者会見」で、「レースに続く浦項の警告をこれ以上無視してはならない」とし「まとも地震安全対策なく地震危険地帯で稼働、建設中の原子力発電所を中断せよ」と促した。

Russia: US Intel Giving Diplomatic Bank Transaction Details to Media
TEHRAN (FNA)- Russia said the country is outraged that the US security services give to mass media data on bank transactions of the Russian diplomatic missions to mass media.

The Russian Foregn Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told journalists at her weekly press briefing that Moscow has also called on the US authorities to stop exerting pressure on the Russian diplomatic missions in the US, Sputnik reported.

Russia is surprised by the claims made by Defense Secretary Jim Mattis that the United States is in Syria with the permission of the United Nations, Washington does not have such mandate, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Thursday.

Earlier this week, Mattis said that the presence of the United States in Syria had been approved by the United Nations as Washington was engaged in the fight against the ISIL terrorist group.

“We were surprised to hear US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis’ statements … that the US armed forces are in Syria with the UN approval. We would like to understand and in order for this question to not remain rhetoric … what specific mandate is this? When was it issued and by whom?” Zakharova said.

However, Russia hopes that the United States will adhere strictly to the agreements reached by the countries’ presidents on fighting terrorism.

Speaking at a briefing, Zakharova said that media outlets were reporting frequently on the United States supporting terrorists, which “cannot be called a fair game.”

“We hope that the US side will adhere strictly to the agreements on fighting terrorism which were recorded in the Russian and US presidents’ joint statement on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) conference in Da Nang on November 11,” she told a briefing.

ENENEWS 福島第一原発事故による東京地方の放射能汚染

ENENEWS2017/11/16
Radiation near Tokyo spiked to 100,000,000 times normal after Fukushima − “Intensive contamination” hit Tokyo area… “Extremely high” levels detected − Info about radioactive contamination hidden from public

PLOS, Nov 14, 2017 (emphasis added): Radioactive contamination in the Tokyo metropolitan area in the early stage of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant (FDNPP) accident and its fluctuation over five years

The activity and inventory of radioactive material in the eastern part of Tokyo tended to be high… The radioactive plume with high 131I activity spread into the Tokyo metropolitan area…
Almost no public information about the radioactive contamination in the Tokyo metropolitan area and Kanto district had been shared…
The plume containing a large amount of radioactive material drifted into the Tokyo metropolitan area… where over 30 million residents live… [Publications] include almost no discussion of the fact that radioactive materials were carried into the Tokyo metropolitan area…
The contamination level was extremely high in a roadside ditch sludge in Kashiwa City…
The quantity of 134+137Cs deposited in the region studied was estimated… from values measured in the soil, it was estimated as 5.35 TBq…
High activities and inventories of the radionuclides were found in eastern Tokyo and northern Chiba… The contamination was even higher in the adjoining northern part of Chiba located east of Tokyo…
The results reveal that the Tokyo metropolitan area even now continues to be affected by radioactive contamination caused by the FDNPP accident…

Gordon Edwards, Ph.D, nuclear expert, 2017 (pdf): Intensive contamination extends over 200 km south – right down to the outskirts of Tokyo

IRSN, 2016 (pdf): Fukushima-Daiichi Accident: Main contamination events… Event of 14-16 March – This event is marked by turning winds and by a rainfall that generated significant contamination of the Japanese territory. On the evening of the 14th of March, a first radioactive plume was transported by winds towards the southwest… and reached the Tokyo area. At Tsukuba, 153 Bq/m3** were measured…

** 153 Bq/m3 = 153,000,000 uBq/m3 Cs-137 in Tsukuba after Fukushima vs. 1.2 uBq/m3 Cs-137 in Tsukuba before Fukushima (source) = 127,500,000 times higher Cs-137 after Fukushima

関東地域の土壌調査のデータがある。ヨウ素、セシウム。採取深1cm、米軍などによる調査データと比較可能とみられる。貴重なデータあり。
