Have you ever taken a close look at the documentation that came with your phone?

If you're like me, probably not. The manual is voluminous, and safety information is hard to find.

Stand on the beach overlooking Half Moon Bay, and the sound you’re most likely to hear is of waves crashing against the rocks. But when Roger Bland climbed up there, he wanted to hear what was underneath those waves.

Fear and Eating in Fukushima

Mar 30, 2015

We are no strangers to earthquakes here in the Bay Area. But there’s been nothing in recent memory to match the 9.0 quake that shook Japan on March 11, 2011.  

The quake set off a deadly tsunami and was so powerful that it shifted the earth’s axis by several inches.





On today's Your Call, we’ll talk about the recent leaks from the nuclear power plant at Fukushima, Japan.  It’s been over two years since the plant suffered its original damage from the earthquake and tsunami.  Now, more than 300 tons of radioactive water has leaked from the plant into the ground and ocean.  So what do we need to know?  Could the entire Pacific Ocean be at risk?  And what can we be doing to prevent this? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.


Maybe you've just seen The Bourne Legacy and have nagging feeling that you're being watched at all times. Maybe you related a little too much to Close Encounters of the Third Kind. So if you see low-flying helicopters crisscrossing the skies this week, you might think the government is after you, or that the aliens have finally arrived. But the more likely explanation is that you've caught a glimpse of the federal effort to measure "naturally occurring background radiation."
