Johanna Faust, a mixed race Jew, prefers to publish pseudonymously, despite, or because of, an array of academic, musical, literary, mathematical, and ceremonial achievements. She is committed: to preventing war, ecological disaster, and nuclear apocalypse; to keeping information available and free; and to not only fighting for personal privacy, but, by representing herself as a soldier in that fight, to inspiring others. All these efforts find representation on her blog "ah, Mephistophelis," so named after the last line of Chirstopher Marlowe's in his famous Dr. Faustus, which, as some would have it, successfully flouted the censor for a time. A female Faust, she is a poet, always.

  3. It iss all because of one dumb stupid f*ck. Who builds nuclear plants at the coast next to tsuname and earthqiacke. May be that was plant to hapen.

  4. There is also a report on why all 10 backup systems failed to start after it being hit by tsunami. The backup systems where found to be infected by StuxNet virus which also results in malfunction of the valves.
