Removal of fuel in pool at Fukushima's melted reactor begins

Removal of fuel in pool at Fukushima's melted reactor begins The operator of the wrecked Fukushima nuclear plant for the first time is removing fuel from a cooling pool at one of three reactors that melted down in the 2011 disaster, a milestone in the decades-long process to decommission the plant. Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Monday workers started removing the first of 566 fuel units stored in the pool at Unit 3. The fuel units in the pool are not enclosed and their removal to safer ground is crucial to avoid disaster in case of another major quake. TEPCO says the removal at Unit 3 would take two years, followed by the two other reactors.

A hero for all E3

During Bethesda's E3 conference, we expected the internet (and one particularly loud fan) to swoon over the publisher's bigwigs: Pete Hines, Todd Howard... the duo elicit heart-eyes emojis every year.

But this year, a challenger for our Bethesda conference fave appeared like a bolt of lightning. A challenger with some real zest and pure, unadulterated joy: Ikumi Nakamura, creative director at Tango Gameworks.

On stage to announce Ghostwire Tokyo, Tango's latest game, Nakamura's excitement was obvious -- and those in the audience as well as those online absolutely lapped up every moment.

Fans, athletes, volunteers will be up early at Tokyo Games

Fans, athletes, volunteers will be up early at Tokyo Games Next year's Tokyo Olympics could become known as the get-up-early games. Some events are set for very early morning to beat the summer heat in the Japanese capital. The men's 50-kilometer race walk final will begin at 5:30 a.m. The men's and women's marathon finals will start at 6 a.m. Swimming finals will start at 10:30 a.m. Swimming has nothing to do with the heat. It's a setup to allow deep-pocketed North American television to show the events live in prime time.

As a number of tweets will tell you, Nakamura has good form. She worked as an artist on Okami, Bayonetta and The Evil Within. That's a resume to make anyone jealous. She's also been working with Shinji Mikami, who formed Tango Gameworks.

Like a cool breeze rolling in on a warm summer's day, Nakamura's energy and her excellent poses captured the hearts of those in the audience and those watching at home. She was an unstoppable force for good.

Twitter was abuzz for her with every second user claiming that they would die for her. Can you blame them? Protect her at all costs.

Personally, I found it hard to separate the two shining lights of the Microsoft and Bethesda press conferences. Keanu Reeves dominated one. Ikumi Nakamura dominated the other. Who won E3? Reeves or Nakamura? Does it even matter? I think we all won.

A Banksy rat? Tokyo city displays work 'by famous artist'

A Banksy rat? Tokyo city displays work 'by famous artist' Tokyo on Thursday displayed a drawing thought to be the work of Banksy, as the city's mayor urged the famous and mysterious street artist to get in touch. Curious Tokyoites, tourists and art lovers flocked to see the work depicting a rat holding an umbrella that was spotted on a panel near a monorail station in central Tokyo. As ever, doubts rage over whether it is a genuine work by the secretive artist and Governor Yuriko Koike said: "If there are any problems, I'd very much like Mr Banksy to contact the Tokyo metropolitan government.
