Five years have now passed since Japan suffered a triple catastrophe: an earthquake, a tsunami and Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant meltdown.

As the agency for advice and assistance on public health, WHO shares the concerns of the affected populations in Japan and continues monitoring the health risk situation in Fukushima.

Related public health risk assessments and recommendations have been issued by WHO. Today the major challenge remains in the area of mitigation psycho-social impact of the disaster.

Training is indispensable for military units. It’s also expensive. The costs of ammunition and fuel add up. Also, wear and tear shorten the lifespan of vehicles and weapons systems.

As the Pentagon scales back amid looming budget cuts, a more flexible and technologically advanced force is necessary. Some trainers say improved virtual systems, better games and larger simulations, as opposed to training centers, will play a greater role in preparing soldiers for future battles.

Paraskevidekatriaphobia or friggatriskaidekaphobia is a morbid, irrational fear of Friday the 13th

Today happens to be the first of two Friday the 13ths that will fall in 2017 and some fear it may be some sort of a strange omen.
