Bits and Pieces - April 7, 2011

A 7.4 magnitude earthquake has shaken northeast Japan. A 1-meter tsunami is expected in the same area that was already hit. The previous tsunami was 14 meters at Fukushima, however. Update: Tsunami warning has been lifted.

How to tell if your neighbor is a bombmaker.

The idea of bringing all nuclear weapon states into some kind of a START-type data exchange arrangement seems to be going mainstream.

I have to apologize to Johnny Depp, the Mad Hatter, Alice, and the rest of the Wonderland crew for my post the other day. The Republicans are much further out.

Added later: US nuclear experts helping Japan. Those guys on the other end of the phone? I hear that Fukushima is the only thing the reactor guys at Los Alamos are doing these days. I might add that if the government shuts down, this support may shut down too, or become more difficult.

And, oh yeah, Russia seemed to be irritated with Iran for safety issues at Bushehr a while back. Iran says not to worry.
