The Japanese do it again. Congratulations.

Sodium silicate or sodium metasilicate, Na2SiO3.

A tetrahedral cystal. 

It is used to repair automobile engines and exhaust systems.  It forms a 'glass like' seal and has a high heat tolerance.

I am impressed.

When solid it forms a variety of sizes of crystals that appear to be like glass.

Japan nuclear crisis: Fukushima radiation leak stopped (click here)

An accidental leak of highly radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean from Japan's damaged nuclear plant has been fixed.

Workers used chemical agent injections to solidify the soil near the cracked pit from where the radioactive water has been leaking at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant in northeast Japan.
The leak has resulted in soaring levels of radiation contamination in sea samples from the surrounding Pacific Ocean, with reports of more than 7.5 million times the legal limit of radioactivity at its peak....

Incredible people.  Absolutely incredible. 

Japan sets radiation safety standards for fish (click title to entry - thank you)

BEIJING, April 6 (Xinhuanet) -- The first radiation safety standards for fish are being set in Japan. It comes after radioactive contamination in seawater near the damaged Fukushima Daiichi power plant measured several million times the legal limit.
Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said on Tuesday the government would apply the maximum allowable radiation limit for vegetables to fish.
The move to introduce safety standards for fish came after the Japanese health ministry reported that fish caught off the coast of Ibaraki Prefecture contained levels of radioactive iodine that exceeded the new legal limit.
The prefecture is approximately half-way between the damaged plant and Tokyo. TEPCO said even those large amounts would have no immediate impact on the environment, but added that it was working to stop the leak as soon as possible.

The House Budget cuts are cultural genocide.

One of the aspects of the USA is its diversity.  Diversity that exists because of recognition and accommodation by government to improve the lives of its citizens.  When the budget cuts in the House Budget is examined it is obvious there is cultural genocide as a basis to the ideology existing with the Regressives.

It is completely obvious to me that over the past decade, since "W" was president there has been a steady attack on the values of Democrats while more and more funding and exceptions were granted the culture of the Regressives.  I am fairly confident that is litigable. 

Oppression of a culture is a global human rights violation.  I believe that is what Democratic leaders are picking up on even if they see it as a function of choice rather than government.  In other words, "Faith Based Initiatives' are funded and nurtured while the programs valued by one half of the USA are discarded and underfunded.  There is a culture genocide proposed by this House of Representatives and it is a hostile agenda for them.

If equity was applied across the board in 'discretionary' spending to remove some of the burden from the national debt no one could complain, however, that is not what is occurring.

The Regressives like to characterize it as pandering to "Liberal /Value Voters" but that isn't it.  The fact of the matter is, the federal spending that supports many of the 'agenda items' of the House Regressives;haven't been touched.  The programs being cut have been developed over time to support Americans in a way that provides equity.  When funding is cut to long standing 'social programs' that have proven to be 'of value' to Americans that is an attack on a 'culture of caring' Liberals developed that gets results.  These are not empty programs simply sopping up money without results. 

Over the years there has been a methodolgy by the Regressives to eliminate any contact by federal dollars to any 'value system' that does not agree with theirs.  That is not only discrimination it is planned genocide of a culture that exists to serve segments of the American population not otherwise addressed.  The 'genocide priority' of the Regressives is not only offensive it seeks to destroy other value systems regardless of how benign or productive they are.  No one is eliminating Regressive values from the budget, nor have them been, but when it comes to a culture other than their's they have no tolerance and seek to destroy the values of an entire segment of the country in their process.

I know I can prove that methodolgy, I don't know why anyone else can.  This is more than simply making budget cuts, it targets culture and that at the very least on a global scale is highly illegal.
