A sleepless night.

It’s quite possible that I just spent eight hours in bed without getting one minute’s sleep.  It was horrible.  So horrible, in fact, that around 4 AM I remembered, in desperation, how to pray.

So that’s pretty much all I did until getting up for work.  Meaning my outlook and attitude are probably the best they’ve been in years.

Energy level’s a bit low, though.

    Must be something in the environment – I had the same problem, and the same solution…
    Espresso for me this morning… :-)

    And prayers for your day, too… :-)

    Good luck with the rest!

    Quick ask for help: does the brief info in the typically-truncated JapanToday article even line up? I mean, reading between the lines seems that the ‘problem’ is closer to ‘Problem’. Or am I over-reacting?

    Japanese officials reporting on the aftermath of the Fukushima disaster say that gamma rays from the rubble left by the accident are now a greater concern than radioactive cesium still being emitted from the crippled nuclear plant.

    A report to an International Atomic Energy Agency meeting presented Monday says that cesium being released from the plant is at approximately 0.01 becquerels per hour, well below the health-hazard level. Shinichi Kuroki, who presented the report, says the greater challenge is to reduce relatively high gamma ray radiation from the plant debris.

    A powerful earthquake and tsunami hit the Fukushima plant 17 months ago, overwhelming its safety systems and spreading radioactivity over a large area.

    IAEA chief Yukiya Amano urged delegates to maintain their “sense of urgency” on post-Fukushima nuclear safety.

      Look at it this way: the human body as approximately 4,400 becquerel simply by existing and eating.

      But it’s another classic article where they throw around a number that most people have no clue about. It’s like with the radioactive fish they found. Japan Times went ahead and called it 0.08 Milisievert, instead of a simple 80 Microsievert. I’m not expecting much from the JT, given it went from leaning left wing to falling off the cliff into the Marxist swamp.

      As for the IAEA, well, it’s a UN organization, take that any way you want.

  5. I do like to joke that when insomnia hits, that is God’s way of telling me I haven’t been praying enough lately.

    Hope you’ve caught up with your sleep. Sleep deprivation is the worst thing ever in my book. I’m not an insomniac, but I am insomniphobic.
