I'm sorry to disagree about the nuke fatigue. I follow the Japanese and international press, and send items to my colleagues here. One has over 90,000 followers on his twitter: https://twitter.com/masaru_kaneko Certainly, the Yomiuri, Sankei and other media would like to talk about anything except Fukushima Daiichi. But that is not true of the Mainichi, the Asahi, the Tokyo Shinbun, and the blogs and twitters. And I mean the stuff in Japanese, not the "gaijin" ghetto.
Thanks, Junko for this blog. Here in the states I sometimes watch the NHK World in English and am interested in the continuing coverage of Fukushima and the tsunami cleanup efforts. Some of the stories are heartwrenching and inspiring...like the farmer from the Fukushima area who was trying to find homes for his cows and trying to convince people the cows were OK. The latest thing I heard was a plan to freeze the contamination under the nuke plant. Wow. I certainly don't blame the Japanese for wanting a distraction. Speaking of denial, the US west coast is supposed to get more radiation. Check out U of Hawaii's graphic on the plume.And a report that says the radiation will be harmless but on our shores in Science Daily.
Yes old age is tough and so is life. You enjoy when you are between 30-45afterthat its tough and when you cross 70 its really gets difficult. Japan has come a long way after hiroshima and nagasaki bombings. The nuclear leakage is so destructive for the coming.g generation. This is a sensitive situation and not sure if government can ever do enough. Its the people who have to rise fof their rights to live.:
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
