This past week was really tough for Japan as a whole, digging their heels in as bad weather hampered rescued from those stranded or trapped in tsunami devestated areas. Food, water, gasoline, and other supplies have been in shortage, and problem after problem at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.Despite all of these difficulties, Japan shows no sign of surrender to the forces of nature and human kind.
The sea of journalism that has surfaced this week has presented a challenge not only for me, but for everyone to be able to properly sift through all of the information and find the articles worth reading, or the photographs and videos worth viewing.
Take a look at this week’s list of articles and images that are worth your time.
