- Charred debris from a plane
that crashed and burned on take-

removed yesterday from the Long

A salvage company took the

"We are only sharing the basic
information, which is less than
we previously did," she wrote. "It
is important to have the minimal
information in the directory to
allow faculty and staff to reach
students for purposes of Univer-

University-affiliates will also
have the opportunity to publi-
cize more information if desired,
according to Witte.
"Students will be able to add
contact information if they wish,
including their chat contact (e.g.,
AIM name)," she wrote.
In addition to better connecting
members of the campus commu-
nity, the information in the new
directory will enable the Univer-
sity to efficiently provide com-
munity members with access to
computer and Internet services,
Witte wrote.
"This will be important as we
move toward the use of Google for
e-mail, for example," she wrote.
"We'll need a fast, efficient way
to get new students set up with
Google e-mail accounts, and the

tal in doing that."

"Individuals will not be able to

Witte added that MCommunity

"Search results will be format-

A meeting is held by officials of Fukushima Prefecture's Emergency Response Headquarters in Fukushima, north of
Tokyo on Monday, March 14. Dangerous levels of radiation are leaking from a crippled nuclear plant in Fukushima.
International agency calls Japanese
nuclear situation 'serious'=but 'stable'

IAEA draws
increased scrutiny
following crisis
VIENNA (AP) - The situa-
tion at Japan's tsunami-stricken
nuclear plant is "very serious,"
but at the moment does not
appear to be deteriorating, a
senior official of the U.N. atomic
agency said yesterday.
As emergency workers
frantically worked to regain
control of the dangerously over-
heated nuclear complex, Graham
Andrew told reporters "there had
been no significant worsening"
over the past 24 hours at the crip-
pled plant.
Andrew, a senior aide to Inter-
national Atomic Energy Agency
chief Yukiya Amano, emphasized
that the situation could change
quickly, either improving or esca-
lating into a wider catastrophe.
"It hasn't gotten worse, which
is positive, But it is still possible
that it could get worse," he said.
"We could say it's reasonably
stable at the moment compared to
Andrew appeared to be the
first senior IAEA official to say
that the situation has not sig-
nificantly deteriorated since the
agency began briefings Mon-
day. On Wednesday, Amano had
described the situation as "very

serious," adding "it is difficult to
say" if events were spinning out
of control.
Andrew spoke shortly after
Amano flew to Tokyo to assess
efforts to fight the nuclear havoc
unleashed by the massive earth-
quake and tsunami that hit
Japan's northeastern coast Fri-
It was unclear what Amano
hoped to accomplish during his
one-day trip; he has said he plans
to stay in Tokyo and meet with
government officials but he had
no agenda or scheduled meetings
before takeoff from Vienna inter-
national airport.
"We don't have a fixed sched-
ule and don't have all the infor-
mation so we will be thinking on
our feet," Amano told reporters
assembled in the departure hall.
Still, he suggested his trip
was symbolically important as
his home country wrestles with
its worst nuclear crisis since the
bombing of Hiroshima and Naga-
saki 66 years ago.
"Japan is not alone, the inter-
national community is standing
by Japan," Amano declared. "We
have lots of offers of assistance to
Japan and I would like to convey
this message to them."
In Japan, military helicopters
dumped loads of sea water onto
the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant
yesterday as they tried to cool
overheated uranium fuel that

may be on the verge of spewing
out more radiation.
As the crisis unfolds in
Japan, the IAEA has been under
increased scrutiny as to whether
it has done enough to increase the
safety culture in the nuclear reac-
tor industry.
A U.S. Embassy cable from
three years ago on the WikiLeaks
website published yesterday by
Britain's "The Guardian" daily
cited criticism of Tomihiro Tam-
niguchi a senior IAEA official
in charge of nuclear safety and
security, who stepped down two
years ago.
It described him as a "weak
manager ... particularly with
respect to confronting Japan's
own safety practices."
The IAEA declined comment,
and officials at yesterday's brief-
ing sidestepped specific ques-
tions on how the agency's safety
recommendations applied to the
Fukushima Dai-ichi plant.
But while conceding the
enormity of the Japan disaster,
Andrew defended the "enviable
safety record" of the nuclear sec-
tor in terms of deaths compared to
"other ways of creating energy."

agency forecasting the possible
trajectory of the radioactive cloud
