More blunders at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power facility in Japan, now defunct, have led to yet another major environmental disaster, indicate new reports. Workers from the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), which owns the shuttered utility, apparently forgot to turn off an overflow valve at an onsite storage tank recently, causing the release of 100 metric tons of highly radioactive water into the ground.
According to Reuters, this latest leak is the worst to occur at the plant since an earlier one back in August which sent some 300 metric tons of contaminated water into the environment unmitigatedly. This earlier event ranked at level three on the seven-point International Nuclear Event Scale (INES), which is considered to be a “serious incident.”
In this latest occurrence, a Fukushima storage tank designed to allow for the tapered release of contaminated water into a nearby holding area was improperly monitored, resulting…

"Know what you don't know" (Someone, 2020).
Jessica attended the University of San Diego’s lawyer’s assistant program immediately after obtaining her undergraduate degree. She worked as a legal assistant while she pursued her master’s in forensic science. After obtaining her MS. degree she continued to work in the legal field for years till she got involved in the pre-planning business.
She has been working on her PhD in forensic psychology on and off over the past several years.
Her current focus of analysis is assisting in the process of perfecting a comprehensive analysis of LIFE EXPECTANCY as it relates to ELEVATION / LONGITUDE / LATITUDE / POPULATION DENSITY and NUTRITION variables and their relationship to life span and quality of life to produce a dissertation topic that focuses on solutions to the problem of a decreasing life expectancy and its relationship to increasing income inequalities in America.
Improving educational skills training is the #1 variable involved in elevating quality of life while simultaneously raising life expectancy. (Klocko, et al., 2015). A qualitative approach, utilizing both quantitative statistics over time and qualitative population sampling, would best represent all angles of this topic (Stimpson & Walker, 2020).
