Submission + - Nokia and Apple settle patent dispute (

Submission + - Japan underestimated the risks (

TheInternetGuy writes:

A UN nuclear safety team (IAEA) on a visit to the country has said that Japan underestimated the risk of a tsunami hitting a nuclear power plant. However, the response to the nuclear disaster which followed the 11 March quake and tsunami was "exemplary".

I am wondering how the IAEA came to the conclusion that the disaster response has been exemplary. I live close enough that I have to wash the vegetables from my garden before eating ( yeah I know, that's a good Idea any way), so I know it enough to have an opinion.
To be honest, lets not forget that they have been working under very difficult circumstances. But Exemplary??? Not so much.

A good supervisor can step on your toes without messing up your shine.
