Fukushima 50 ...Risk Their Lives and Lifelong Health To Save Japan

Fukushima 50 is the name given to a group of employees of the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant. When a nuclear accident resulted in a serious fire at the plant's unit 4 on 15 March 2011. These 50 employees remained on-site after 750 other workers were evacuated...battle radiation leaks and fires, even at risk of not surviving. Their activities included assessing the damage and radiation levels caused by the explosions, cooling stricken reactors with seawater and preventing any risk of fire. No one doubts the bravery of the Fukushima Fifty, they have voluntarily exposed themselves to potentially fatal levels of radiation.

They only eat two meals a day, emergency high-energy biscuits for breakfast, and quick-boiled rice and canned food for dinner. The workers are restricted to packaged food because of radiation contamination fears, Reuters reported. They stuff the food into their mouths once they open the packets to avoid contact with radiation. In the evenings, they gather around in a safe room to cheer "Let's do our best!" and clap once, before wrapping themselves with blankets and going to sleep on the floor in rows "packed together like sardines".

A BlackBerry Joke...Be A Wise User!

Dear Owner,

I'm so lucky I'm your BlackBerry!
You hold me with both hands gently as you could be.
You ensure that I am always with you.

If I fall you are afraid of my injury.
I always have your undivided attention, you get upset if others disturb our time together.
You can never forget me in a taxi and you won't let me go unlike my old friends nokia, sony and sammy that you would proudly just hand over.

      Dramatic Pictures Of Japan Tsunami 2011

      The most powerful earthquake of Japan (magnitude 8.9) on Friday 11th March, hit about 250 miles north-east of Tokyo, triggered a massive tsunami (reported to be as huge as 33 foot) destroying everything that came in its path. The disaster left most of the places in Tokyo in dark as the nuclear power reactors were shut down automatically due to the earthquake. After the earthquake, Japan is now trying to avoid a meltdown accident at its Fukushima nuclear power plant. A disaster which could have catastrophic impacts on Japan and much of the world.

      2011 BlackBerry GSM Roadmap

      The roadmap above shows the PlayBook at coming in around April, which makes the April 10th rumor look a little more true. Then the BlackBerry Dakota (Internally R005, nicknamed ‘Bold Touch’, sister device to the Montana) to be  releasing around end of May, beginning of June.

      Next the BlackBerry Apollo  (Internally R006, nicknamed ‘Next-gen Curve’, sister to the Sedona) should release by July. Lastly, the Torch 2 (Internally R040) seems to be ‘under consideration’, but if accepted we could see it as early as end of May, or early June release. Otherwise, it appears as though it could be pushed back.

      2011 looks like it will be a great year for RIM. New devices packed with higher specs, new OS (6.1), and some new features like NFC and mobile hotspot will be a good filler until we see RIM’s ‘super phones’ debut with QNX in (possibly) 2012.
