The banks may remain closed on Tuesday.
The Cypriot government even calls it " a new beginning".
In exchange for the 10 billion euro bailout for the Cypriot banks and supposedly saving 8,000 jobs, the EU demanded that the Cypriot government confiscate 6.
These thefts are supposed to raise up to 7.
They did it after the last financial markets in the world US closed for the weekend.
People cannot withdraw money over the weekend, as ATMs have been stopped.
Zero Hedge has more information on the theft, including.
According to reports, Germany and IMF initially wanted 40% of deposit money confiscated, not 9.
I think it's a trial balloon to see if they can get away with the theft, and if they do then to replicate elsewhere in the EU periphery, for a start.
Along with loans adding up to 10 billion euros from the European Support Mechanism, Cyprus will have to find another 7-7.
Already bank customers are gathering outside major and cooperative banks, Skai television reported on Saturday morning, as angry depositors demand their money.
Depositors will get shares of the banks they are clients of in return for the capital lost, of the same value as the haircut their accounts have suffered.
This is the first time in the eurozone that a levy has been imposed not on the interest of bank accounts but on the capital itself.
Notably, the account haircut does not affect bank accounts in Cypriot bank branches based in Greece, according to sources from the Greek Finance Ministry.
Tax on interest will amount to between 20 and 25 percent.
Finance Minister Michalis Sarris has postponed his official visit by two days and will now go to Moscow on Wednesday.
Cyprus state broadcaster CyBC reported on Saturday that German Finance Minister actually entered the Eurogroup meeting on Friday proposing a 40 percent haircut on Cypriot bank accounts.
Sarris stated in Brussels that in view of the threat from the European Central Bank for banks in Cyprus to shut down and chaos to ensue, the increase in interest taxation and the haircut to bank accounts became necessary.
He qualified the bailout funds loaned to Cyprus as sustainable and manageable and will not constitute an unbearable weight on the next generations.
IMF head Christine Lagarde said "the Fund has always said it would support a solution that is viable, and this agreement fulfills this condition, so my recommendation to our board will be for contributing in the funding of the package.
In case of the Japanese one, the line was "We didn't tell you about core melt, or extent of damage at Fukushima I Nuke Plant because if we had done so it would have been chaos and panic.
In search of non-GM soybeans, the company has decided on Ukraine, of all places.
The company plans to import 5,000 tons within 3 years which is about 0.
Supply from the U.
Japan used more than 950,000 tons of soybeans last year for foods such as tofu, miso soup paste and natto, stringy beans eaten for breakfast.
Of that, about 80 percent of demand was met with imports, according to the agriculture ministry.
Longer Wait Sojitz may sell Ukrainian soybeans at a 10 percent discount to the North American equivalent as a way to attract buyers in Japan, Kobayashi said.
Ukraine was forecast to produce as much as 2.
In 2010, Sojitz joined with Soyko International Inc.
The Ukrainian firm owns 40,000 hectares of land, most of which is cultivated, and drying and storage facilities with a capacity of 80,000 tons, according to its website.
The venture with Grain Alliance in Ukraine, a newcomer to soybean cultivation, will produce about 3,000 tons of the oilseed for use in food this year, Kobayashi said.
While producers prefer North American soybeans, cheaper supplies from Ukraine will win market share in Japan, he said.
Grain Alliance's says " Restoring the Bread Basket of Europe".
My cursory look didn't find any reference to Chernobyl on their site nor the information about the location of the farms.
Photo from Grain Alliance's site Japanese trading companies were apparently one of the first to see the huge business potential in importing lumber from Europe right after the Chernobyl accident, as.
Historically, large Japanese trading companies have worked very closely with the national government.
I wouldn't be surprised if both the lumber import in the 1990s and this soybean import are under the "administrative guidance" from the government.
TEPCO may have hoped that it was one of those vent pipes from the dry well to the suppression chamber in Reactor 2 that was leaking the water injected into the RPV, but the couldn't find any leak.
So the conclusion is that the suppression chamber is probably leaking.
I would think it will be much harder near impossible to plug, because the suppression chamber is submerged in highly contaminated water.
The water leaked into the basement of the reactor building was likely to be coming from the suppression chamber.
In that on March 15, TEPCO's spokesman no longer Mr.
Matsumoto, I don't know the name of this young person who croaks when he speaks didn't explicitly admit that the leak was from the suppression chamber; instead, he said, in response to a question by the reporter from Tokyo Shinbun on how TEPCO felt about the discovery after fire rock casino in gallup new mexico minutes : Since the leak is not from the PCV primary containment vesselit will be easier to plug the leak.
How could a repair job in an inaccessible part of the suppression chamber lower half be easier?
His reasoning was that the PCV was closer to higher contamination, so any repair work away from the PCV would be easier.
He tried to spin it as a positive discovery.
The only problem was how to find the leak in the lower half submerged part of the suppression chamber, or other locations, he said.
It didn't seem like an answer to me, but as usual, the reporter said "OK, I got it", and that was the end of his questions.
I miss the previous spokesman Matsumoto, who looked like Doraemon.
He didn't try to spin, like the current one does.
One of the photos taken by Toshiba's robot.
Lots of white noise click to enlarge : The radiation levels inside the Reactor 2 torus room is not known.
TEPCO couldn't lower the camera and dosimeter through the hole drilled on the 1st floor when they found out there were blocking the way.
The support structure for the Reactor 4 building is now just as high as the reactor building itself.
TEPCO, pressured by the government particularly the current Abe administration officialsis making haste in building the structure so that they can start removing the fuel assemblies in the Spent Fuel Pool starting November this year.
I hate to say it but a hasty job often fails in an unexpected way.
But if that happens, no government official will take responsibility anyway, TEPCO gets the blame, who in turn blames the lead subcontractor probably Kajimawho then blames its subcontractor, who then.
From TEPCO's : Click to enlarge Speaking about hasty job, all those tanks at Fukushima I Nuke Plant that contain water treated to remove radioactive cesium and other gamma nuclides but not beta like strontium and tritium.
Those tanks are made of steel sheets bolted together, not welded, with rubber packing.
The rubber packing lasts 5 years.
Workers have been patrolling among these tanks, and tightening the bolts to prevent the leak.
The plan was that the contaminated water would be all treated clean by Kurion's and AREVA's systems which did claim to remove more than just cesium by the end of the year 2011 and these tanks would not be needed.
With 400 tonnes of water still seeping from the ground into the turbine building basements every day, TEPCO continues to have a huge water problem.
But instead, let's worry about a potential earthquake and let's remove fuel assemblies in haste.
That will show to the world how serious Japan is in dealing with the accident.
According to the estimate by a group of researchers at Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology, it is possible that radioactive cesium in the amount 73 times as large as the discharge limit before the accident may have leaked into the water in one year since June 2011, when the leak of contaminated water is supposed to have stopped.
The group says the detailed research is necessary.
However, we don't know the reason yet as to why the density of radioactive cesium in the seawater inside the harbor is not decreasing, so we want to continue the investigation.
In the model below, the highest radioactivity in red starts to appear in Fukushima after about 0 UTC on March 14, 2011, and it continues until around March 21, 2011.
Japan is nine hours ahead of UTC.
On March 14, 2011, TEPCO was attempting the vent of Reactor 2 and Reactor 3.
The explosion of Reactor 3 building happened at 11:01 AM that day.
From : The Hybrid Single-Particle Lagrangian Integrated Trajectory HYSPLIT model was developed by NOAA to follow the transport and dispersion of pollutants in the atmosphere.
In HYSPLIT, the computation is composed of four components: transport by the mean wind, turbulent dispersion, scavenging and decay.
A large number of pollutant particles, which by convention are called "particles" but are just computational "points" particles or gasesare released at the source location and passively follow the wind.
The 2011 Tohuku East Japan earthquake and resulting tsunami caused a variety of failures at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant which resulted in radioactive emissions to the atmosphere.
The earthquake occurred on March 11th at 14:26 Japan Standard Time JSTthe tsunami about one hour later at 15:41, and by 16:36 a nuclear emergency was reported.
By the early morning hours of March 12th, radioactive emissions were occurring from the plant.
In this dataset, the simulation from NOAA's HYSPLIT model shows a continuous release of tracer particles from 12-31 Ссылка на страницу at a rate of 100 per hour representing the Cesium-137 emitted from Fukushima Daiichi.
Each change in particle color represents a decrease in radioactivity by a factor of 10.
Radioactivity decreases due to removal by rainfall and gravitational settling.
Decay is not a factor for Cesium in this short duration simulation compared to its 30 year long-half life.
The air concentration would be computed from the particle density so it is only partially related to the color scale.
The released particles are followed through the end of April using meteorological data from the 1-degree resolution NOAA global analyses.
Still, most Americans believe nuclear power plants at home are safe.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 36% of American Adults believe it is at least somewhat likely that radiation from the Fukushima nuclear power plant did significant harm to the United States.
However, that includes just nine percent 9% who think that scenario is Very Likely.
Sixteen percent 16% are not sure.
To see survey question wording.
The survey of 1,000 Adults nationwide was conducted on March 9-10, 2013 by Rasmussen Reports.
Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by.
How likely is it that radiation from that plant did significant harm in the United States?
Coverage of the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant accident by the major media outside Japan, including the US, pretty much ended by the end of March 2011.
I was writing many posts each day starting March 11, 2011, and distinctly remember the foreign coverage dropped off significantly around March 23, 2011.
There was nothing more to explode, nothing exciting to see or hear.
By the time April rolled around, there was hardly any coverage.
That was my unscientific impression, anyway.
If I were to answer the first question, I would answer "not fire rock casino in gallup new mexico />NOA did publish the data on contamination from the rain after the Fukushima I Nuke Plant accident, but the EPA in California didn't bother even measuring radioactive particles in the atmosphere.
EPA in northern California relied on "volunteers" to collect air filters at the measuring stations, asand the air filters were sent by mail to a laboratory in Alabama.
I haven't seen any systematic, fire rock casino in gallup new mexico measurement of agricultural produce except in the very early days EPA emergency monitoring on May 2011.
So says the Chinese officials.
Pig farmers in the neighboring province have been dumping the dead pigs, supposedly died of cold weather.
The AP article below also mentions the "illicit trade of fire rock casino in gallup new mexico products harvested from diseased pigs", which the authorities are cracking down on.
The Shanghai municipal government said in an online announcement that 5,916 swine carcasses had been retrieved from Huangpu River by 3 p.
Tuesday, but added that municipal water remains safe.
The surge in the dumping of dead pigs — believed to be from pig farms in the upstream Jiaxing area in the neighboring Zhejiang province — has followed police campaigns to curb the illicit trade of pork products harvested from diseased pigs.
Shanghai authorities said the city has taken proper measures to safely dispose of the pig carcasses and that the city's water plants are stepping up efforts to disinfect public water and testing for six common swine viruses.
The Shanghai government reported no major swine epidemic, widespread pig deaths or dumping of pigs within the city boundaries of Shanghai.
The state-run China News news agency said Monday that Zhejiang province had reported no swine epidemic but that a provincial agriculture official blamed cold weather for the deaths of the pigs.
The official, who was identified only by his family name Gu, told China News that the practice of dumping dead pigs into rivers lingers among some pig farmers in the city of Jiaxing.
Shanghai authorities have been pulling out the swollen and rotting pigs, some with their internal organs visible, since Friday — and revolting images of the carcasses in news reports and online blogs have raised public ire against local officials.
Beijing-based writer Li Mingsheng expressed shock when he learned of the latest number of dead pigs in Shanghai.
So is selling something tainted with undesirable substances disease virus, chemicals, radioactive cesium.
Boldly go where even the Ben Bernank hasn't gone before.
The Fed chairman bought CDS credit-default swaps and interest rate swaps of Bear Stearns in the emergency rescue of the company in 2008, but not as part of ongoing quantitative easing.
A couple of laps behind in the QE track, Mr.
Kuroda and Bank of Japan will overcompensate.
Kuroda, by mentioning the financial derivatives at all, is signaling his intention to use them, I believe.
Multibillionaire investor Warren Buffett once called the derivatives "weapons of mass financial destruction".
But then, Buffett was later seen writing put options on his railroad company shares which went into money.
Big bang for the money is irresistible even to the wealthy investors, I suppose.
Kuroda, it's not even his money anyway.
What's there to lose?
Several US municipalities have lost badly on the interest rate swap deals with Wall Street banks.
The most famous case iswhich went bankrupt over the costly sewer plant project gone bad, partly thanks to the interest rate swaps that ended up costing the county much more when Lehman Brothers collapsed and the entire financial system almost collapsed in the fall of 2008.
Unlike Jefferson County, Bank of Japan, which is 55% owned by the national government, will not go bankrupt, as Mr.
Kuroda would simply print money to replenish whatever he loses to the bankers.
He continues to insist that such a huge earthquake and tsunami had never been anticipated.
Kan says he was invited to speak at a symposium by Dr.
Helen Caldicott on March 11, 2013 in New York City commemorating the Fukushima nuclear accident, but he couldn't come in person, thus the video.
Here's thefor those of you who'd rather read.
Kan remains a hero for many people for saving Japan and the world from a nuclear accident which could have been far worse, and a champion for renewable energy proponents.
There are also many who hold him to be criminally liable for what happened.
Yoichi Funabashi, president of the that did the first large-scale investigation of the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant accident, depicts how Mr.
Kan and his cabinet ministers reacted to the accident in the early days.
Goshi Hosono, then Mr.
Kan's personal adviser, according to Mr.
Funabashi, were in mortal fear that Japan would be taken over and occupied by a foreign power the United States, most likely if they accepted the foreign help in dealing with the unfolding nuclear disaster.
NHK did a documentary special of Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant for the second anniversary of the nuclear accident.
It sent reporters to the plant, and also did its own analysis and simulation experiments with the help of experts.
NHK says it obtained the blueprints of Reactor 3, and carefully studied them with the experts.
Now why wouldn't anyone have done it sooner?
NHK raises the possibility that Reactor 3's meltdown occurred because not enough water was reaching the Reactor Pressure Vessel, and more than half the water being injected by the fire engines went to the condenser instead.
The pump that circulates the water from the condenser had a line coming in from the main water line to the Reactor Pressure Vessel.
However, the pump stopped on March 11, 2011 when the power was totally lost.
So the water injected into the main water line to the RPV reached the condenser pump and went to fill the condenser, instead of going to the RPV.
NHK also says if the loss was only 25% of water instead of 55%, the meltdown may not have happened.
TEPCO did mention in a press conference in the very early days of the nuclear accident that for some reason the condensers in Reactor 2 and Reactor 3 seemed to be full of water.
In those days, reporters probably didn't even know what a condenser in a nuclear power plant was, and TEPCO's managers they were engineers in the beginning of the accident couldn't explain things well to the general public.
TEPCO did mention the Condenser Units of Reactor 2 and Reactor 3 to be full of water, in a press conference in 2011 right after the start of the accident: So NHK and the experts NHK consulted do a fire rock casino in gallup new mexico, using a small-scale model, and conclude that about 55% of water injected may have leaked into the Condenser Unit.
They further conclude that if the leak was up to 25% of the water injected, the meltdown may have been prevented: Then, NHK turns to fire engines installed at nuclear power plants after the Fukushima accident, and says "Nobody knows whether a sufficient amount of water from a fire engine can reach the reactor in an emergency.
I wonder if they knew about the line to the condenser pump, or if it occurred to them that the water intended for the Pressure Vessel got diverted to the condenser because of the loss of power to the pump.
The main battery and the auxiliary battery were connected but they shouldn't have been connected.
Boeing's initial blueprint for 787 had these batteries connected.
The blueprint was later revised so that the batteries were separate, but that revision wasn't reflected in the ANA plane.
The Transport Safety Board said in a report that the battery for the aircraft's auxiliary power unit was incorrectly connected to the main battery that overheated, although a protective valve would have prevented power from the auxiliary unit from causing damage.
Flickering of the plane's tail and wing lights after it landed and the fact the main battery was switched off led the investigators to conclude there was an abnormal current traveling from the auxiliary power unit due to miswiring.
The agency said more analysis was needed to determine what caused the main battery to overheat and emit the smoke that prompted the Jan.
They said they are consulting Boeing about the issue.
The Federal Aviation Administration and aviation authorities in other countries grounded 787 fleets because of the ANA incident, which followed a battery fire earlier in January in a 787 parked in Boston.
The 787, dubbed the Dreamliner by Boeing, is the first airliner to make extensive use of lithium ion batteries, which are lighter in weight, charge faster and contain more energy than conventional batteries similar in size.
However, the batteries also are more prone to overheating and catching fire.
The Board denied the error was related to the charred battery, but ANA's other two planes may have similar wiring errors.
In the ANA plane, the main battery was carbonized.
Boeing revised the blueprint later to separate circuits for the two batteries.
The Transport Safety Board is investigating why the revision was not reflected in the ANA plane.
Would the US FAA want to hear from ANA more on this?
In addition to the blueprint revision not reflected, without reporting the incidents to the FAA.

I am Japanese, and I not only read Japanese news sources for information on earthquake and the Fukushima Nuke Plant but also watch press conferences via the Internet when I can and summarize my findings, adding my observations.
One possible count below, we'll tweak the squiggles as we go.
Its been a helluva run.
We went on an unprecedented 50 year spending binge using an unbacked fiat currency that could be printed at wi.
Well, this was, until March 11, 2011.
Now it is taken over by the events in Japan, first earthquake and tsunami but quickly by the nuke reactor accident.
It continues to be a one-person me blog, and I haven't even managed to update the sidebars after 5 months.
