Items of interest - Fukushima watch. On the second item , if the info wasn't from Tepco , I would feel a greater comfort level. As Tepco has lied through their teeth to date , I guess we shall see what happens with unit 4.

SFP4 over 55℃. Coolant system is still stopped.

Though Tepco stopped the water leakage, coolant system is still not back on. At the moment, they can’t estimate when they can recover it. Also, they estimated the temperature increases at 0.5℃/h, it’s increasing at over 1℃/h. It went up by 22℃ within 18 hours. Currently the temperature of SFP is 55℃.(10:00 JST) The safety limit is 65℃. At this pace, it will reach 65℃ about in 10 hours.
About the information disclosure, it is tweeted like these below
(Tweet of Ms. Tanioka, a member of the House of Councilors from The Democratic Party of Japan)
New information about SFP of reactor 4 from METI. The staff of METI is not being lazy, they are occupied to collect information about missile of North Korea.

From TEPCO's handout for the press on July 30, 2011:

The claim by some experts that only the steel posts are propping up the pool is not true.
