汚染水浄化サリー、想定下回る セシウム除去5万分の1

 
東京電力は20日、福島第一原子力発電所の敷地内にたまっている高濃度放射能汚染水の新たな浄化処理施設、通称「サリー」の放射性物質の除去効果を明らかにした。放射性セシウムの濃度が約5万分の1に減ったという。

 東電によると、セシウム134で処理前より5万2千分の1、セシウム137で5万7千分の1に減った。当初の想定では10万~100万分の1程度に減らす予定だった。しかし、装置のポンプの負担が予想以上に大きく、装置の除染能力を5分の4に落としているためという。

新浄化装置「サリー」でセシウム5万分の1に


 
東京電力は20日、福島第一原子力発電所の高濃度汚染水浄化装置「サリー」を使って、セシウム134の濃度が5万2000分の1、セシウム137の濃度が5万7000分の1にそれぞれ低下したと発表した。


 装置は18日に運転を開始したが、当初、セシウムの濃度が10万分の1から100万分の1に下がると見込んでいた。除去能力は予想より低かったが、処理後の濃度はセシウム134が1立方センチあたり21ベクレル、セシウム137が23ベクレルで、塩分を除去する淡水化装置を傷めないレベルまで下がっており、問題はないという


同じ事柄に関する報道だが朝日と読売の原発への態度を象徴しているように思う。
朝日ーーーやっぱダメポ
読売ーーーよくやったぞ。

自民個人献金、72%が電力業界 09年、役員の90%超
 



 自民党の政治資金団体「国民政治協会」本部の2009年分政治資金収支報告書で、個人献金額の72・5%が東京電力など電力9社の当時の役員・OBらによることが22日、共同通信の調べで分かった。当時の役員の92・2%が献金していた実態も判明した。電力業界は1974年に政財界癒着の批判を受け、企業献金の廃止を表明。役員個人の献金は政治資金規正法上、問題ないが、個人献金として会社ぐるみの「組織献金」との指摘が出ている。福島第1原発事故を受け、原子力政策を推進してきた独占の公益企業と政治の関係が厳しく問われそうだ。

Study shows why domestic violence victims drop charges


COLUMBUS, Ohio (Reuters) - Emotional appeals from their abusers who minimize their own wrongdoing, rather than threats, often lead victims of domestic violence to drop charges, a study found.

・・・・・
In the initial conversations there would often be a heated argument over events leading to the abuse charge, Bonomi said. The victim would be strong and resist the accused perpetrator's account of what happened.

Then the perpetrator would minimize the abuse until he persuaded the victim he didn't deserve a felony charge. He would appeal to her sympathy, saying he was depressed and missed her and their children, Bonomi said.

In one case, the accused perpetrator threatened suicide before the victim promised to help him get out of jail.

In the third stage, the couples bond over their love for each other and the perpetrator gets the victim to recant.
・・・・・


"As a prosecutor you do get frustrated when the victim doesn't follow through," Alvarez said. "It could be a threat. Many times, it's not. Many times it's the honeymoon -- 'Let's get back together, I love you, it won't happen again'."

She said some women recant because their abuser is the family breadwinner. Her office now requires prosecutors and investigators for domestic violence cases undergo special training courses, the same as victim advocates receive.

不謹慎かもしれながちょっとおもしろい。
DVで被害にあった女性パートナーがなぜ、収監されている暴力をふるったパートナーをゆるしてしまうことが多いのか?
暴力夫は「自殺する」と脅したり、「やり直そう、愛しているよ、もうあんなことはしない」などと同情を買う作戦にでたり、あるいは、暴力夫が家族の大黒柱だったりするからである、と。

女性も手に職をつけて、子供ができても職は継続したほうがいいようですな。




U.S. Faulted in 3 Deaths; Sterilized Mom Testifies

By WeNews staff
Saturday, August 20, 2011



In a landmark decision, an international tribunal has found the U.S. government responsible for human rights violations against a Colorado woman and her three deceased children, who were murdered by their father, the ACLU said in an Aug. 17 press statement.

Jessica Lenahan (Gonzales) v. United States is the first case brought by a domestic violence survivor against the U.S. before an international human rights body, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights. The ruling also sets forth comprehensive recommendations for changes to U.S. law and policy pertaining to domestic violence.

The case concerns the 1999 incident in which police in Castle Rock, Colo., failed to respond to Jessica Lenahan's repeated calls for help after her estranged husband, Simon Gonzales, kidnapped their three young children in violation of a domestic violence restraining order. Ten hours after Lenahan's first call to the police, her husband drove up to the Castle Rock Police Department and began firing his gun at the police station. The police returned fire, killing Gonzales. Inside the truck, the police found the bodies of the three girls who had been shot dead. Local authorities failed to conduct a proper investigation into the children


 家庭内暴力の被害に対して散々苦情をいっていたのに警察が対応せず、結果、子供3人が殺されたケースで国際法廷はアメリカ政府の人権侵害に責任がある、と判定。







Tribalism as Pop Culture Phenomenon and the Perpetuation of Offensive American Indian Stereotypes
By Ruth Hopkins


August 19, 2011


Non-natives who wear American Indian costumes are pretending to be someone of another race. Just as wearing blackface is repugnant, appearing as a stereotyped caricature of an American Indian is patently offensive. Those who play “dress up” by wearing an American Indian costume, headdress or war bonnet are not only failing to acknowledge the existence of over 500 recognized native nations, each separate and distinct from one another, they are making light of centuries of suffering, oppression and genocide endured by the indigenous people of this country. Enforcing racial stereotypes of Native peoples as savages in nondescript feathers and fringe also perpetuates the myth that American Indians are not active members of modern society and questions our very existence.



Perhaps the most deplorable version of stereotypical American Indian ensembles is the “sexy Indian” costume, a.k.a. the “Pocahottie.” Such costumes, like the one Paris Hilton wore last Halloween, depict Native women as sex objects to be desired by non-native men (and perhaps women). Considering that American Indian women are 2.5 times more likely to be sexually assaulted than any other race of women, that one out of three of all American Indian women are sexually assaulted in their lifetime, and that as many as 4 out of 5 of these acts of sexual violence are committed by non-native men, the very idea of perpetuating the image of Native women as a sex object is reprehensible.
・・・・・


Those who perpetuate false, negative images of Natives are unwilling or unable to grasp the concept that honoring Native people does not involve making Natives into insulting caricatures. Furthermore, stating that the misappropriation of our cultures and identities isn’t important is an attempt to diminish Natives who are against such misuse.
・・・・・


一部のアメリカインディアンの民族衣装をまねをするのは、不当な一般化であり、また固定観念を永続し、アメリカインディアンに対する弾圧の歴史を鑑みれば、ブラックフェイスと同じでいかがなものか、と。
ただ、これはどうかなあ、とも思う。たぶん、インディアンのまねをする人に侮辱する意図はないのではないかなああ。文脈にもよるだろうが、”白人”や”黒人”が奇妙なサムライの格好をしても特になにも感じない。

もっとも、写真のようなインディアン女性のまねをするのはどうかな、とは思う。インディアン女性を性的対象とみている、と。

日本人女性をイエローキャブというように、あるいは、”黒人”女性が性的対象の権化と言われるように、マイノリティーの女性はとかく性的対象になりがちである。

ついでに、強壮な”黒人”男性、変態日本人男性というように、マイノリティーの男性は性的プレデター、あるいは、性的逸脱者として表象されがちである。


で、”白人”のように、立派な人から愚かなひと、高潔な人からスケベな人などなど多様な表象
ーーーというより、えてして、ちょっとかっこいいイメージのほうが強いと思うーーーが確保・流布されているならいいが、しかし、マイノリティーの場合は、ある側面だけとらえられ、それが誇張・流布されるのである。

14 Million Americans Don't Have Jobs, But At Least The Federal Workplace Is Diverse, Right?
8/19/2011



これもちょっとおもしろい。オバマさんが多様性を重視して、政府の職場でマイノリティーをもっと多く雇うことにした、と。

"Diverse" and "inclusive" are not synonymous with "efficient" and "functional." If there is a specific job that requires a different cultural knowledge/language/etcetera, then go ahead and diversify away. But if 'diversity' qualifiers are irrelevant to the job that needs doing, then diversity should be irrelevant. We need to eradicate racism once and for all, but we never can if we keep promoting diversity for diversity's sake.


で、この方の意見は、要するに逆差別だ、というもの。その職業に多様な文化的背景とか、言語などが要求されているところで、多様な人種・民族の人を雇うならいいが、そうでないところでは人柄や能力のみを基準に雇用が決められるべきだ、と。

これは、肌の色は考慮にいれるな、派ですね。
で、同じ件で、

A quick look at the demographic breakdown of the federal payroll shows that “diversity” goals have been more than met. According to the Office of Personnel Management, federal employees in fiscal 2010 were 66.2 percent white, 17.7 percent black, 8 percent Hispanic, 5.6 percent Asian and Pacific Islander and 1.8 percent American Indian. Compared to the general U.S. population, the federal force is a bit too diverse. Blacks are overrepresented by 6.9 percent compared to the civilian work force, Asians and Pacific Islanders by 1.2 percent, and American Indians are more than double their proportion of the population at large. White Americans, who make up about 70 percent of the work force, are underrepresented by around 4 percent. Hispanics are also underrepresented despite the Clinton-era executive order 13171, “Hispanic Employment in the Federal Government.”


こちらは、肌の色を正確に反映しろ、派なわけです。”白人”は労働人口の7割を占めているのに、66%しか雇われていませんよ、と。政府の雇用に関して、人口比でいくと、ヒスパニックも同様に過小にしか雇用されていないが、”黒人”やアジア人、あるいはアメリカンインディアンは過大に雇用されている、と。



Bob Beckel Proves He’s Not Prejudiced: ‘Redneck’ Could Refer To Whites, Blacks, Or ‘Chinamen’

Bob Beckel has gotten in trouble for saying things on The Five before but this was just hilarious. During a segment on Michael Vick, he called the dog fighters a bunch of “rednecks.” Even as the word left his mouth, he could tell he was going to get in trouble. So, during the next segment (on a story we know he’s not too interested in), he made a point to apologize, saying that, to him, “redneck” wasn’t a racial thing because “blacks are rednecks, whites are rednecks, I was a redneck, Chinamen are rednecks.” His stunned co-hosts then rushed to cut to commercial and, when the show returned, Beckel was forced to apologize again to the Chinese community!


アメリカの政治評論家がレッドネックという言葉をテレビでつかって、謝罪。

レッドネックというのは、
アメリカの南部やロッキー山脈周辺など農村部や牧草地帯に住む、貧困層の白人に対する軽蔑を含む侮辱的な言葉である


ということなのだそうである。

ところが、その謝罪をするとき、”白人”の蔑称を意味したわけではなくて、自分もレッドネック、”黒人”もレッドネック、Chinaman(ーーたぶん”チャンコロ”に相当)もレッドネック、と言ってしまった、と。



Peel police accused of racial profiling
Published On Fri Aug 19 2011



A 60-year-old Brampton man is accusing Peel police of racial profiling after he says he was locked in the back of a police cruiser and “interrogated” last week.

・・・・・
Officers were investigating a break-and-enter at the time. Williams’ daughter, Michelle, said a Peel police detective looking into her father’s complaint told her police were searching for a suspect who was black, in his 20s, and 5-foot-6.

Williams, who was 20 in 1971, is 6 feet tall.

Williams, who underwent heart transplant surgery in May, said he was out for his doctor-prescribed daily walk on Dixie Rd. near Balmoral Dr. around 12:30 p.m. Aug. 12 when he was confronted and questioned by a female officer, identified in an OIPRD letter to Williams as Const. S. Emery.

“She was shouting at me, ‘Where you going? Where you coming from?’ ”

Williams said he volunteered his driver’s licence to Emery and explained he lived just around the corner. She continued to aggressively question him, he said.

Williams even unbuttoned his shirt and showed the officer the large scar on his chest in an attempt to garner sympathy and to indicate he was no threat, he said.


・・・・・
He walked to the nearest police station ― 21 Division in Brampton’s northeast end ― and asked to make a complaint against Emery, whose badge number he had memorized.

As he started to tell the officer at the station what happened, he was told Emery was based at 22 Division, in Brampton’s northwest, and he would have to file his complaint there. In fact, the Peel police website clearly states that citizens can lodge a complaint at any station.

EDL Member Pleads Guilty To Vandalizing Mosque With Racist Graffitii



A British mother said to be a member of the English Defence League (EDL) has admitted her part in an incident which saw racist remarks daubed on buildings including a mosque.

Charlotte Christina Davies, 19, intends to plead guilty to conspiracy to commit racially aggravated criminal damage, Durham Crown Court heard yesterday.

The teenager, from Aylesbury, in Buckinghamshire, was charged after slogans were spray-painted on the Nasir mosque, in Hartlepool, and the Albert Guest House and Milko store, in Shotton Colliery, County Durham, on November 16, last year.

Ms Davies sent text messages suggesting people throw pork scratchings, leave a pig’s head and daub Merry Christmas above a door the day before the beginning of the Muslim festival of Eid, David Crook, prosecuting, told the court.


EDLのメンバーの若いお母さんがイスラム寺院に差別的落書きをしたことを認めた、と。それと、豚の皮を油で揚げたスナック菓子や豚の頭を投げ入れるように示唆した、と。
ただ、後者は教唆かもしれないが、実際にそうした行為が行われていなくて、陰謀罪、ということだろうと思う。
後者に関しては非常に問題のある犯罪構成要件であると思う。



Investigation finds racism in city department
By: MICHAEL MARTZ
Published: August 20, 2011



The employees recommended for discipline appear to be supervisors because they are cited in relation to supervisory duties. The investigation found:

failure to act on complaints of racial epithets by white workers against black pipefitters in the division;
neglect of duty in job reassignments made without consulting the city's human resources department, allowing one employee to write performance evaluations for fellow workers, and failing to train workers to qualify for promotion to better positions; and
hiring of a relative in violation of the city's prohibition against employees reporting directly to a supervisor who is a family member.
