All is well for the people saying that the worst is over from Fukushima. That situation is better, the economy is also better, all is well. Go back to sleep, now. [satire for those awake.]
‘Fukushima reactor in crisis again’

TOKYO: A new probe at Japan's crippled nuclear power plant has found fatal radiation levels and hardly any cooling water inside one of the reactors, renewing concerns about plant's stability.
The operator of Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant says an endoscopic examination on Tuesday detected radiation levels up to 10 times the fatal dose inside the No. 2 reactor's contain chamber, suggesting challenges ahead in shutting down the facility.
The probe also found the containment vessel had cooling water up to only about 2 feet from the bottom, far below the 10 meters estimated when the government declared the plant's stability in December. Plant workers also reported fresh leaks of contaminated water from a water treatment unit.
