Mehrere Pharmaunternehmen werfen der Firma Documed vor, das Image ihrer Medikamente mit einem Verpackungsvermerk zu schädigen. Damit wolle Documed ein Monopol wiederherstellen, das sie durch ein Gerichtsurteil verloren habe.

Konkurrenz belebt den Markt! Konkurrenz einfach schlecht zu machen deutet von schlechtem Stil. Im Kampf zwischen OpenSource und Closed Source nennt man das FUD. Fear Uncertainty Doubt. Streuung von Unsicherheit und Halbwahrheiten. Kostengünstige, innovative Leistungen sprechen für sich. Dies hat selbst der Bundesrat eingesehen.
Kosten zu Gerichtsverfahren in Deutschland werden ganz anders berechnet als in der Schweiz. Die Anwaltskosten sind immer von der Streitsumme abhängig.

1. The Japanese government office started Tweeting in English. http://twitter.com/#!/JPN_PMO
2. The Japanese Prime Ministers office waited two days before they accepted Hiroshi Suzuki, CEO of Putzmeister Japan, to help out with cooling Fukushima with a German concrete truck that was bound for another country and diverted to Japan on short notice. The CEO personally drove the truck to the location! He is married to an Australian woman and has two daughters.
3. TEPCO is opening its private clubs and entertainment places for refugees from the north of Japan. There are several in Tokyo, too – http://is.gd/Tms3GH

This information comes from a Japanese scientist who may or may not have to attend the power plant of Fukushima to help with the current situation:
* In case of a ‘reasonable worst case scenario’ (defined as total meltdown of one reactor with subsequent radioactive explosion) an exclusion zone of 30 km would be the maximum required to avoid affecting peoples’ health. Even in a worse situation (loss of two or more reactors) it is unlikely that the damage would be significantly more than that caused by the loss of a single reactor.
* The current 20km exclusion zone is appropriate for the levels of radiation/risk currently experienced, and if the pouring of sea water can be maintained to cool the reactors, the likelihood of a major incident should be avoided. A further large quake with tsunami could lead to the suspension of the current cooling operations, leading to the above scenario.
* The bottom line is that these experts do not see there being a possibility of a health problem for residents in Tokyo. The radiation levels would need to be hundreds of times higher than current to cause the possibility for health issues, and that, in their opinion, is not going to happen (they were talking minimum levels affecting pregnant women and children – for normal adults the levels would need to be much higher still).
* The experts do not consider the wind direction to be material. They say Tokyo is too far away to be materially affected.
* If the pouring of water can be maintained the situation should be much improved in time, as the reactors’ cores cool down.
* Information being provided by Japanese authorities is being independently monitored by a number of organizations and is deemed to be accurate, as far as measures of radioactivity levels are concerned.
* This is a very different situation from Chernobyl, where the reactor went into meltdown and the encasement, which exploded, was left to burn for weeks without any control. Even with Chernobyl, an exclusion zone of 30 km would have been adequate to protect human health. The problem was that most people became sick from eating contaminated food, crops, milk and water in the region for years afterward, as no attempt was made to measure radioactivity levels in the food supply at that time or warn people of the dangers. The secrecy over the Chernobyl explosion is in contrast to the very public coverage of the Fukushima crisis.
