[NEWS] Kim Joon Soo of JYJ Leads Way to Victory at Soccer Game

The celebrity soccer team made up of Korean entertainers called FC Men from Soo Won Blue Wings and the celebrity soccer team made up of Japanese entertainers called FC GEININ held a charity soccer game to help recovery efforts in east Japan, the region severely impacted by the major earthquake last year, at Tokyo National Stadium on April 28, and around 40,000 audience members glowed with enthusiasm while watching the game.

The soccer game was designed to remember the earthquake to mark its one year anniversary. A special performance by Juno (Kim Joon Ho), who is the twin brother of Kim Joon Soo of JYJ, and the five member group M.E.N led to an enthusiastic atmosphere before the game.

The soccer players from both teams appeared on the field and listened to both countries’ national anthems. The leader of FC MEN, Kim Joon Soo of JYJ, and actor Yoon Sang Hyun donated 20 million yen to Sakurai, the mayor of the city of Minamisoma in Fukushima Prefecture, which suffered the most severe damage from the major earthquake. Kim Joon Soo received a letter of appreciation from Nakasone, the former Japanese prime minister and the chairman of the Korea and Japan Collaboration Committee, for helping the revival of the region. Kim Joon Soo said before the game, “I am glad that I can participate in this meaningful event.” And Yoon Sang Hyun said, “It is my honor to become a coach of the Korean soccer team, and I will definitely lead this game to victory.”

FC MEN gave up the opening goal to the Japanese team, but the first half finished in a tie as the Japanese team scored an own goal. The two teams played a tight game in the second half, and the audience went wild while watching the game. FC MEN led the game with better physical conditioning and it was expected to win the game with the fourth goal by Shin Ki Hyun at the 39th minute of the second half, but the game became tied again as the Japanese team scored one more goal. The game looked likely to be tied, but Kim Joon Soo scored the fifth goal after receiving a pass from actor Lee Wan right before the game finished. The Korea celebrity soccer team won by a score of 5 to 4.

 The 40,000 audience members cheered both teams with loud applause while watching the game. Kim Joon Soo, who ran the whole game without taking a rest for his fans, said, “I felt pressure as the Japanese team was too strong, but I am glad that we finally won the game. I thank our team members’ great effort.”

 In addition, the players of FC MEN including Juno, Lee Wan, and Seo Ji Seok ran around the field and presented soccer balls to the audience who rooted for the two teams.

120429 Japan Still Needs Our Help

It is through the concerted efforts of many artists, their fans and supporters, and relief agencies supported by everyday people that Japan is continuing to receive help for recovery from the earthquake and tsunami of Aril 2011. It takes years to recover from natural disasters, as is evidenced by New Orleans and surrounding areas, the West Coast of America, and by Haiti and other countries. The list is too long to include every area of concern. Please consider giving to the relief agency of your choice in this continuous fight to promote recovery in many countries.

120111 7.3 Magnitude Quake Strikes Off Western Indonesia: USGS

Yet another quake. Siberia experienced a 6.6 quake last week. The weather is so unusual. Our first major snowstorm of the season has hit in mid-January. It hasn’t been this warm this time of year in 85 years. Prayers go out for all those affected by severe weather.

7.3 Magnitude Quake Strikes Off Western Indonesia: USGS

By Nurdin Hasan | AFP – 21 hrs ago

A 7.3-magnitude earthquake struck off the west coast of Indonesia’s northern Sumatra early Wednesday, sending panicked residents onto the streets and in search of higher ground.

Thousands on the island of Simeulue, 200 kilometres (124 miles) from the epicentre, ran from their homes as the ground shook, an AFP reporter on the scene said.

But after Indonesia issued a tsunami warning, the residents ran back inside to collect their belongings and then sought higher ground.

A warning was also issued by the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center, but both have since been lifted.

“There were no immediate reports of any damage or casualties, and that’s still the case,” Meteorology and Geophysics Agency official Tiar Prasetya said.

The agency said the under-sea quake hit at 1:37 am (1837 GMT), while the USGS reported the depth at 29 kilometres (18 miles).

A soldier named Eko who was on the shore on Simeulue when the earthquake struck said he monitored the water levels in fear of another tsunami.

“The water receded about a metre, which is a sign a tsunami is coming. Usually the water rushes back quickly, but that didn’t happen, so I was worried a tsunami would hit,” he told AFP.

The USGS reported the epicentre was 423 kilometres (262 miles) southwest of Banda Aceh, the capital of Aceh province on Indonesia’s Sumatra island.

In Banda Aceh, the ground shook for 30 seconds and terrified residents rushed out of their homes, but they returned indoors shortly after, an AFP reporter there said.

Aceh was the worst-affected area by the December 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami — triggered by a giant 9.1-magnitude earthquake — that claimed 220,000 lives, three-quarters of them in Indonesia.

More than 20 people by a river in Banda Aceh climbed a bridge Wednesday morning after the quake to look out for signs of a potential tsunami.

Although the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center dropped its warning, it said: “There is a very small possibility of a local tsunami that could affect coasts located usually no more than a hundred kilometres from the earthquake epicentre.”

The Indonesian agency also reported two aftershocks of magnitude 5.4 and 5, respectively about 30 minutes and one hour after the initial quake.

Some coastal residents had moved further inland, taking shelter in mosques or camped by the roadside as a precaution, but there was no sense of panic, the AFP reporter said, adding that the aftershocks were not felt in Banda Aceh.

A powerful earthquake hit Sumatra in September 2009, killing more than 1,000 people, and seismologists have warned of the likelihood of another large quake in the coming years.

Indonesia sits on the Pacific “Ring of Fire”, where the meeting of continental plates causes high volcanic and seismic activity.

NEWS Is There A Japanese Backlash Against the Hallyu Wave

[News] Is there a Japanese Backlash Against the Hallyu wave?

It’s no secret that as of late, Korean entertainment companies have been setting their sites on the greater pool of fame and fortune laying a short plane ride away, in the island nation of Japan. Idol group after idol group has either debuted or been slated for a Japanese release. The dramas and the television programs follow. The reasons behind it are not difficult to see. Japan has a far larger music industry than Korea. Being a small fry in the Japanese industry will still rake in far more profit than being a small fry in the Korean industry. However, as of late, it’s becoming quite evident that not all Japanese are welcoming of the “Hallyu Wave”. Protests have jumped from the bowels of the internet to fronts of television network buildings.

According to Japanese Internet news outlets such as J-CAST, roughly 6,000 people gathered outside Fuji Television Network to protest what they believed was too much time allotted to “Korean Wave” content on TV.

“We do not want to watch Korean TV dramas,” protesters chanted, adding that Fuji TV should not force people to watch programs they did not want to see.

They added that the Japanese people desired more homegrown programs on TV.

These protests come on the heels of the controversy surrounding the firing of Japanese actor Sousuke Takaoka from his agency, after he made some negative remarks concerning the recent flood of Korean entertainment into Japan. This kind of conflict is not surprising, given the history between Korea and Japan. But it leaves the question: are Japanese netizens being irrational in their negative reaction to the Hallyu Wave? And what can be done to minimize backlash?

The first, rather obvious point that people will make is that despite all the negative attention, Korean music seems to be selling quite well anyway, with recent acts such as SNSD and Kara topping Japanese pop charts. Kara has been gathering a significant fan base inJapan, and does seem to be growing genuinely popular, but this does not hold true for the vast majority of other K-pop groups. The majority of the imported groups sell very well, but hold little consequence in the mainstream because they have an extremely small, loyal niche of K-pop fans that buy up physical albums. These fans are not reflective of the average casual listener; they are like other overseas Korean idol fans. They are devoted, but exist outside of the mainstream trend.

Once the fact that Korean groups are, on average, not enjoying runaway success is established, it leaves the question: why does the Japanese public tend not to like K-entertainment? It’s tempting to say that it boils down to a matter of historical tension and nothing more, but that fails to dig deep enough. There is a pervasive assumption that Korean groups are only gaining airtime because powerful Korean zainichi executives are cutting deals within the Japanese industry to give them the spotlight, thereby shutting out native music groups. Given the number of zainichi executives giving rookie K-groups ample, easy opportunity to promote in the industry, it is a hard accusation to refute. Add this to the recent economic crisis caused by the earthquake and tsunami and a stew of general bitter feelings is created. It may be that if K-pop idols gave the impression of working hard to achieve their fame, then some of these problems might have been overlooked by the public. However, when very few groups even bother to learn Japanese, let alone record original songs or promote properly, it makes the fact that the attempts to break through are nothing more than a grab for money even more obvious.

There is no easy fix for this situation. There are extremely racist Japanese netizens, determined to never give a Korean group the time of day, as there are xenophobic Korean entertainment executives who want the money but cannot quite conceal their distaste regarding Japan. However, if more groups took the route that DBSK took, and worked from the bottom up rather than taking advantage of cheap media grabs, then it would go a long way towards improving things. Do you think that the system for debuting groups in Japan should be changed? Do you think that any groups will achieve a greater level of success within the current system?

Washington Monument Top Cracked by Earthquake

Washington Monument top cracked by earthquake

APAP – 1 hr 31 mins ago



WASHINGTON (AP) — The National Park Service says engineers have found a crack near the top of the Washington Monument presumably caused by a magnitude-5.8 earthquake that shook the East Coast.

Park service spokesman Bill Line said Tuesday night that structural engineers found the crack where the 555-foot landmark narrows considerably.

He says the monument will be closed indefinitely to keep the public safe.

An outside engineering service will study the crack on Wednesday.

The 91,000-ton monument is made of Maryland marble.

Editors Note: 5.9 Magnitude Earthquake

Hi Everyone. There are times when it appears as if calamity is on every side, and you wonder when the trials will be over. I ask for your prayers for my family in Virginia, Washington, D.C. and North Carolina–and my husband’s family in New York State and our prayers go out to other families impacted by the earthquake. Colorado also experienced a 5.9 earthquake. Although there is minimal damage, I know that they were and are frightened by this occurrence. I lived on the East Coast for 39 years, and what we saw mostly was hurricanes. The world at large is now experiencing devastating weather and events that leave you wondering, “Will I be next?

Faith and trust in The Lord are what holds us together in extremity. Fervent prayer brings results. The east coast was hit earlier this summer with storms, this is just another incident that could have been much worse.

Thank You, Momma Cha

Earthquake strikes Eastern seaboard
By Liz Goodwin

National Affairs Reporter
By Liz Goodwin | The Lookout – 3 hrs ago

A 5.8-magnitude earthquake struck Mineral, Virginia, 87 miles outside of Washington, D.C., today. You can see the White House appear to shake as the Secret Service walks on its roof in the video above.

Shaking could be felt from Toronto to New York all the way to North Carolina at close to 2 p.m. this afternoon. The quake lasted 45 seconds, and is one of the largest ever to hit the East Coast.

The Pentagon, Capitol and White House were all evacuated, according to the Associated Press.

Roll Call says the Capitol was evacuated after staffers saw “chandeliers…swinging from side to side.” According to an eyewitness on Twitter, the National Cathedral is damaged, with some of its stones falling off altogether.

But no fatalities have been reported so far, and the damage appears to be relatively minimal.

Many people trying to make cell phone calls in the area reported having trouble finding service. Craig Fugate, the head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, used Twitter to ask Washington residents to “try to stay off your cell phone if it is not an emergency.”

Office workers stood outside Dupont Circle in Washington, waiting to be allowed back in to their buildings after the tremor, reports Laura Rozen, who writes The Envoy blog for Yahoo! News. While there were reports that the National Monument was “tilted,” Yahoo! Ticket reporter Chris Moody went to the scene and found it looking fine. The grounds within 1,000 feet of the monument were closed, he reported.

Two nuclear reactors in Virginia were automatically shut off after the quake, but no damage has been reported, according to Reuters . A nuclear power plant near the epicenter of the quake is designed to survive up to a 6.1-magnitude quake, according to the People’s Alliance for Clean Energy.

Earthquake Listed at 5.9 Rattles East Coast From Virginia to New Hampshire  By JESSICA HOPPER (@jesshop23) Aug. 23, 2011
A 5.9 magnitude earthquake jolted the East Coast, rattling people from Martha’s Vineyard to Washington, D.C. to North Carolina, prompting the evacuation of Congressional buildings, slowing rail and air traffic, and taking two nuclear reactors offline.

The earthquake sent people pouring out of office buildings, hospitals, the Pentagon and the State Department when it struck at 1:51 p.m. The pillars of the capitol in Washington, D.C. shook. Alarms sounded in the FBI and Department of Justice buildings, and some flooding was reported on an upper floor of the Pentagon as a result of the quake.

Parks and sidewalks in Washington were packed with people who fled their buildings. All of the monuments along the National Mall have been closed. Police on horseback kept people a safe distance from the Washington Monument and the new Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial.

National Parks Service Spokesman Jeffrey Olson told the Associated Press that there was “absolutely no damage” to the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial or other tourist destinations along the Mall.

The National Cathedral suffered damage to at least three of the cathedral’s pinnacles, Dean of the Cathedral Samuel Lloyd said. The cathedral has been cordoned off with yellow police tape as a precaution.

Officials inspected Congressional buildings before members of Congress and their staff were allowed to return to their offices.

Office workers gather on the sidewalk in downtown Washington, D.C., Aug. 23, 2011, moments after a 5.9 magnitude tremor shook the nation’s capital. The quake was felt as far north as New Hampshire and in Martha’s Vineyard where President Obama and his family are vacationing. It was felt as far south as South Carolina and as far west as Cleveland, Ohio.

The East Coast gets earthquakes from time to time, but rarely of a magnitude to make skyscrapers sway.

Paul Segall, a Stanford geophysicist who studies the structure and development of earthquake faults, called today’s shaker “a significant earthquake for that part of the world. It could do significant damage.”

“I can’t remember an event that large on the East Coast,” he said.

No significant damage or fatalities have been reported. Some injuries have been reported in Washington D.C., the fire department spokesman told the Associated Press. In New York City, the fire department said that they received a surge in calls.

Authorities in New York and Washington said cell phone traffic was so heavy that it hampered their ability to respond to emergencies. A spokesperson for the Federal Emergency Management Agency urged people to email and use text messaging instead of their cell phones for their next few hours to ease the congestion.

The epicenter of the quake was near Mineral, Va., 39 miles from Richmond, Va., and 83 miles from the nation’s capital. The quake was .6 miles deep.

According to convertalot.com, a web site which compiles measurements and calculators for a variety of statistics, the magnitude 5.9 earthquake released energy equivalent to the explosion of 10,676 tons of TNT.

Amanda Reidelbach, office manager and spokeswoman for the Louisa County Department of Emergency Services in Mineral, Va., said that the town has felt “at least a half dozen or so” aftershocks since the initial quake struck.

“There were pretty serious aftershocks,” she said. “We walked out onto the street and felt the ground just rumbling.”

There have been reports of structural damage to some residences in town, Reidelbach says, but no reports of significant injuries. Mandatory evacuations were put in place shortly after the quake with all non-essential government and county personnel were sent home for the day. Schools were also closed.

The epicenter of the quake is very close to two Dominion Power nuclear power plants, North Anna 1 and 2.

Elizabeth Stuckle, spokesperson for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, said that the reactors were “automatically and safely shut down.” The plant declared an “unusual event” which is the lowest category of four emergency classifications. Back-up generators automatically kicked in to keep the reactors cool, the NRC said.

Nine other nuclear plants on the East Coast declared an “unusual event,” but were none shut down.

The tremblor affected travel in the region.

Amtrak said it was running at reduced speed and was checking tracks and terminals for damage. The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority said the Metro is moving at 15 mph as inspectors check all tracks.

Flights at Dulles International Airport in Virginia, JFK International in New York and in Philadelphia were temporarily halted. Control towers at JFK and Newark International airports were temporarily evacuated. The delay will cause slow air traffic throughout the region, the Federal Aviation Administration warned. In addition, about a dozen flights were diverted from JFK to Boston.

East Coast Earthquake; Amy Winehouse Toxicology Results

A woman who works at Mineral Barber Shop in Mineral, Va. said that the inside of her shop is a mess but there doesn’t appear to be any major damage outside the town square.

In Richmond, Va., a woman who works on the 18th floor of a 20 story building said she and her co-workers left the building when the shaking first began.

“At first I thought it was someone jumping on floor above me, but then it was really loud and shaky,” she said.

People in the New York Times building on 42nd street in Manhattan said they felt the entire building shift, and watched office furniture move. As the tall buildings in New York swayed, people ran out into the street.

The New York City Criminal Court in lower Manhattan was also evacuated.

In Baltimore, Maryland, artist Lisa Lewenz was working in her basement studio when she began to feel movement under her feet.

“Everything started trembling, with a big boom sound coming up from the ground. I’ve lived in LA long enough to know this drill, so rushed upstairs, and found the glassware still shuttering for about a minute. Couldn’t get through by the phone to friends, and there was no news online, so I started worrying my house was collapsing,” Lewenz said.

Rare East Coast Earthquake Reaches 5.9 Magnitude
Since there were no serious injuries, some saw the lighter side in the unexpected quake.

Michelle Mittelstadt said, “My first earthquake! What’s next: Plague of locusts?”

Another woman who works with the Federal Aviation Administration said that the, “If you have to be evacuated for an earthquake, the National Mall is a nice spilling out point!”

The earthquake felt along the eastern corridor follows an earthquake felt Monday in Colorado. That 5.3 magnitude earthquake struck near Trinidad, Colorado.

The United States’ Geological Survey said that earthquakes have been felt in the central Virginia area since 1774.

It seems as if Japan isn’t going to…

It seems as if Japan isn’t going to be stable for a while. It is an island situated on a fault line and after the first initial earthquake and tsunami there have been numerous aftershocks that measure high on the Richter scale. Today’s 7.1 quake triggered another tsunami scare which proved to be unfounded but certainly understandable and possible.

We must keep praying for and supporting Japan. They are a people in danger of losing the very fabric of life that they depend upon. There a numerous charitable events and organizations to donate through to help in the restoration process both on and off the web.

This is not going to be a quick fix, but it is going to be a long-term committment on the part of all those pledging to help Japan to recover.

Editor’s Note While some disasters have short term…

Editor’s Note:

While some disasters have short-term effects, and only impact small regions or areas of the earth–a disaster such as the Earthquake/Tsunami in Japan on March 11th, with its subsequent Nuclear Plant catastrophes, has far-reaching effects for the whole earth. Ten-thousand are dead in Japan, and thousands are missing and homeless.
While the effects of New Orlean’s Hurricane Katrina, and the earthquake in Haiti, along with other disaster areas are still being felt, Japan continues to experience aftershocks of the 8.9 Richter scale quake. The devastation of Japan predominately came from the resultant Tsunami, and here it is 17 days later and a 6.9 quake occurred in Japan this morning.

As far away as the United States east coast there are findings of radiation in the rain. Clouds cover a circuit of the world due to wind currents, and while experts are saying that the radiation levels are not detrimental here in the United States, I pray that does not change.

The food chain is already affected. Milk, water, and plants have been tested for radiation in Japan and here in the United States, and the government is “keeping an eye on it all” in the middle of every other crisis it is dealing with. I am sure that other localities between Japan and the U.S. are also affected. So where does that leave us everyday citizens at this point?

We need to learn to apply diligent prayer to this situation, and to exercise caution and common sense in what we take for granted as clean and safe. Drinking bottled water has been a habit in my family for several years, and be mindful that the soil will be affected if radiation is in an area.

The long-term effects of this potentially enormous nuclear disaster would be in altering DNA, subsequently affecting the children of radiation victims. Not only that, but the victims themselves have higher risk of cancer and other degenertive diseases. No one has mentioned Hiroshima nor Nagasaki, but the Japanese populace has been here before. It is very sad.

I am not writing this to ask you to panic, I am asking you to pray that all will be well; to support the relief effort in any way that you can, and to pray that the offspring of those on this earth today would not have to suffer for the unfortunate lack of planning and insight on the part of governments.

Ultimately, the people bear the brunt of these mistakes. and while we cannot blame Japan for the earthquake and should do all that is possible to help the Japanese people–it is sad that modern industry standards still cannot protect the people that it intends to serve.

Momma Cha

I am so proud of our guys. They have open hearts, and I truly believe that they would be just as concerned if if were somewhere other than Japan. However, we are dealing with Japan’s disaster
which is also affecting other locales so I am glad to see them join in the efforts to help Japan recover from this devastation. Fighting Always and Keeping the Faith. Momma Cha
