distribute. make. available all the information we got from that call and from our monitoring systems so i think we hope that people can understand that stabilize the situation right now we have to explain in the manner in which people can easily understand the situation that's our task there's a perception out there that the quality of information is coming from the government isn't what it needs to be what do you think this perception exists. it's very difficult to understand for ordinary people how. dangerous those numbers are we think that except for places very close to the nuclear power plant because she made eighty no big risk for the. ordinary people so we should make them understand that point now we were
in fukushima just a bit ago and there are some spots that we measured personally where the radiation levels are one thousand times the safely recommended dose there are mothers who are concerned that their children go by these hot spots where you have to say to these mothers our government especially ministry of. education is in charge of monitoring all over the out of japan and they and they publish their data they obtained throughout japan and. they asked nuclear safety commission to evaluate their that so. if the commission is publicizing their comments every day i think the problem for matters. is that it's difficult to understand how safe or how dangerous those numbers are. and it's basically it is said that. radiation
those is more dangerous for children and that's the point that we should. make people understand more by providing them easy easy understand are you planning to expand any of the existing evacuation zones we don't have a. plan to change evacuation area. radical drastically but only example exception is the hot spots we should attack take care of the people living in those places but except for that for them we don't think that we need to change the area of evacuation currently the accepted level is at twenty micro sieverts. which those standards were actually raised to twenty micro secrets from one micro siebert do you think it's responsible to actually change the standards so that. they are now considered to be safe we do not
say that. twenty meters severity is safe but. it's. a pretty standard in this type of emergency situation from a personal standpoint are you worried about the situation in japan in this country yes of course i'm worried about the people a situation that they're afraid of those radiation those looking back at the past three months what do you think that the japanese government could have done better to handle this tragedy to give people accurate information in a manner easy to understand for them so that's the first point and secondly we should explain what we do. is. think the nuclear power plants. which are people worried the overall budget pan
. or though they're quite safe right now. what do you think the government has done well in this situation taking the other side we assumed the worst case is and we said. twenty kilometers radius from dayton and we expanded. region and advocated the region i think we have we said evacuations on based on the scientific that is it possible to open up the reaction to the international community we published our report to. the international atomic energy organization. believes in three and it is written in. both japanese and english so you can. read
from our website our prime minister's office website. report detailed report right after the extent we published. or that in english through our website but scientists say there needs to be more cooperation with outside agencies and outside governments what do you say to these critics they don't know that fact and actually. from the time of the accident we have been consulted with. the united states france and russia and other countries in terms of technical support. equipment machine regular support and we cross the exchanged information regarding the status of plants and possible measures to take can you give me some examples of types of why . operation or equipment that you have received from other countries and we get. us
now to seize support in technical issues and as you know. france and a korean know of the united states provide their equipment and technical support for water purifying system russia of course provided technical support we took the best. best actions. based on the international support how much information is coming from tepco and the government how much do you say they know about the current situation and then how much of that information is being relayed to the public so on that same scale. what does the government know from top go and what does the public know from the government. i think it's a very rough estimate and my personal one. but i think eighty percent.
is known by the government and. that twenty percent is for example. the level of. water and containment vessels and how the water came from those visitors to the buildings as a stagnant water those as a sample was unknown for us and we published we have been publishing all the information we get but. it may be difficult for the ordinary people to understand so i. make. the score. for the ordinary people of say. seventy per cent. japan a country which has. to two nuclear tragedies with your she might not psyche there
are many critics out there who say that it's irresponsible for a country that has experienced such tragedy with the nuclear field to be building nuclear plants. in an area that may be unstable seismically known to have earthquakes what's your response to this so far. we have. forty years of more than forty years of history of safe usage of. to make energy. and this was caused by the unprecedented a tsunami. very heights and i mean nobody. expected that size of a tsunami so you can bring that you failed but this was foreseen by anybody all over the world of course we are responsible for this accent but it should be closely reviewed whether we should we could
have taken any other measures to prevent this are you saying that you couldn't have done anything better it's of course it's not perfect therefore we had an accident. but based we. designed our plants and our energy system based on the best knowledge of the human humankind. mankind so that's the way japan is doing those scientific meetings so. we. we don't. we should carefully review. what caused the situation and as of right now can you imagine a future japan without nuclear energy moving away from atomic energy altogether and right now no. we depend thirty percent of. if.
you could so we have to use a new creation in the near future to the east. seventy six hours of intense fighting. six thousand dead. a beach front battlefields several kilometers long. and now there is only one person who cares. if we are surrounded by garbage everywhere but also there are. on this beach which of course is of the most appropriate signification a symbol of everything that's wrong with our goddamn government allowing not only

three hundred fifty thousand visitors who came to france from rubber world cup two thousand and seven eighty five thousand coming to new zealand for a liberal cup two thousand and eleven are also much cheaper to run as an event in the olympics or the fee for soccer world cup so yes of course the economic downturn affects everyone but not as much as perhaps other sports have been affected. we chose to world cups at the same time two fifteen which is in england and two nineteen which is in japan our process works extremely well you know rugby is a very clean sport we don't have issues that perhaps other sports might have so we're very happy with the process and very happy also that into nineteen we're branching out into new territory for rugby world cup will be the first time that hasn't been held in one of the traditional rugby countries and so that's pretty exciting for us.
the gap has been now ring of over the last two world cups that's one of the reasons why we are investing so much in the tear two and tier three countries to ensure that they have the same sort of chance as the tier one countries the same sort of fitness training the same sort of analysis of video so that they can be more or less on a on a par before they get to the to the rugby world cup rugby is a pretty unforgiving game in soccer it's easy to package the fencing to keep the score down in rugby maybe you can stay level for. sixty minutes or so but the last twenty minutes really can really tell. i think the best thing is for people to be able to see it because once they see it very fall in love with it get as much of the on television as you possibly can show people the game. the main thing for the long term future is
to get it in schools because we know when people play they love it murray going to watch it. interesting stuff to support french and sebastian has won the rally of greece upstaging team mate sebastian he still managed to extend his lead in the drivers' championship the seven time defending world champion. secondly going into the final stage will be struggled on the gravel and who in the end finished two seconds. behind him he's forward and he's seventeen points behind in the overall standings as the season reaches the half price day. and on two wheels american cyclist levi leipheimer has hit form ahead of next month's tour de france winning the tour switzerland by just four seconds from these damiani can a go at the night final stage was a thirty two kilometer time trial and canadian looked like a shoo in for the overall title the twenty nine year old writes from the third
