1938 Manila

Ever wonder what Manila looked like during the 30’s?

Get a glimpse on how Manila looked during the late 1930s via this short film entitled “Manila, Queen City of the Pacific”. With all these horses during this era, I wonder where’s the horse manure.


Tanks Used to Clear Rubble at Nuclear Plant

In the aftermath of the March 11th disaster, Japan’s Self-Defense Forces have been getting a lot of positive press for their dedication to rescue and relief efforts.

Now they are using tanks as bulldozers to clear rubble at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant:

Helicopters Drop Water on Nuclear Reactor

Sorry for this late update I just had some trouble getting online ever since the earthquake in Japan, but here are some recent news from jprobe. Let us pray for Japan and give them our support.


Japan’s Self-Defense Forces have begun aerial water drops on reactor 3 at the Fukushima nuclear power plant:

Japanese military helicopters were seen dropping water Thursday morning to cool the damaged No. 3 reactor at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power facility. The helicopters, belonging to the Self-Defense Forces, were conducting the operations as it was feared the reactor may have released radioactive steam due to damage to its containment vessel, according to a Kyodo news report. Each helicopter can drop about 7.5 tons of water, according to a report on NHK World news channel.

You can watch this happening live on NHK World or the NHK Japanese live feeds.

It has been reported that water cannon trucks are also on their way to the area. However, each truck can apparently only shoot 4 tons of water at a time.

NHK says that parts of the Chinook helicopters have been reinforced with lead plates and that the pilots are wearing protective gear. However, they are no doubt exposing themselves to quite a bit of radiation. If they expect to continue this operation for some time, will have to be a lot of swapping of helicopters and crews.


Teams to Help Japanese Earthquake Victims

Japan’s neighbors are coming to its assistance after a 8.9 magnitude earthquake devastated the Tohoku region on Friday.

South Korea has sent a rescue team to help with the relief efforts in Japan:

The five-member team together with two dogs and rescue equipments, is sent to Tokyo at the request of the Japanese government, Yonhap news agency reported Saturday.

Another 120 relief workers, medical personnel and three military transport planes are on standby to head for Japan, if more help is requested.

President Lee Myung-bak expressed sympathy and pledged full support to help the Japanese government to recover from the major undersea quake that triggered a vast tsunami that devastated northeastern Japan.

Early on Saturday, Masatoshi Muto, Japan’s ambassador to South Korea, met First Vice Foreign Minister Park Seok-hwan in Seoul and thanked Seoul for its support in relief efforts, ministry officials said.

At the meeting, Park said the South Korean government will “do everything it can” to help Japan recover from the quake.

And China has done the same :

The team is made up of 15 members and is expected to arrive at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport three to four hours later by an Air China chartered plane.

Yin Guanghui, an official of the China Earthquake Administration and also head of the team, said that the team’s main task was to search for survivors.

The team brought with them four tonnes of materials and equipments for search and rescue as well as power supply and telecommunication services, Yin said.

Several other nations, including Australia, Great Britain, Israel, New Zealand, the Philippines, Singapore, and the United States, are also sending rescue teams.
