Why It Was “Impossible” for Emmy Rossum to Return for Shameless Series Finale – E! Online

0


John went on to say that the writing team “had about 20” potential story lines in mind for the eldest child of Frank Gallagher (William H. Macy). As fans know, the embattled patriarch died alone in the series finale after suffering from COVID-19 and the effects of alcoholic dementia. 

Nothing was sent in stone regarding an update on her character, but John revealed that the writing staff imagined Fiona might be currently residing in Florida.

“We joked in the room that she ended up getting a job at Disney World, probably in Epcot Center because she would never get a job on the better side,” he shared. “We had a lot of jokes for her, but we never actually nailed it down. But she would have a life and be pursuing her own things. That’s how people move on with their lives.” 

For her part, Emmy appeared grateful for the love from fans. In response to a viewer who tweeted after the finale that Fiona “deserved a send off party,” the actress replied, “So much love.”

Japan to release contaminated Fukushima water into sea

0


Government pledges to make water safe before release, but plan is likely to raise concern.

Japan plans to release more than 1 million tonnes of contaminated water from the ruined Fukushima nuclear power station back into the sea, the government said on Tuesday, in a decision that is likely to anger environmentalists and neighbouring countries such as South Korea.

The announcement, 10 years after the nuclear power station was devastated in a tsunami triggered by one of the most powerful earthquakes ever recorded, is also another blow to the fishing industry in Fukushima, which has opposed such a step for years.

The work to release the water will begin in about two years, the government said, and the whole process is expected to take decades.

“On the premise of strict compliance with regulatory standards that have been established, we select oceanic release,” the government said in a statement after relevant ministers formalised the decision.

The water, equivalent to about 500 Olympic-sized swimming pools, needs to be filtered again to remove harmful isotopes and will be diluted to meet international standards before any release into the ocean.

The decision comes about three months ahead of the Tokyo Olympics, which were delayed by a year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Some events are planned to take place as near as 60 kilometres (35 miles) from the ruined Fukushima Daiichi plant.

Japan is in the midst of a decades-long project to decommission the power station, run by Tokyo Electric Power, and has struggled about what to do with the contaminated water.

St Vincent volcano erupts again, spewing more gas and ash

0


Experts raise concerns about residents who refuse to evacuate as ‘huge explosion’ reported at La Soufriere volcano.

La Soufriere volcano on the Caribbean island of St Vincent erupted in another huge explosion on Monday, spewing sulphuric gas and ash over a wide area.

The latest eruption sent fast-moving flows of hot gas and volcanic material down the south and southwest flanks of the volcano, which first erupted on Friday.

The government had ordered about 16,000 people who live in communities close to the volcano to evacuate on April 9, after the island was put on red alert due to a shift in volcanic activity at the crater of La Soufriere.

“It’s destroying everything in its path,” Erouscilla Joseph, director of the University of the West Indies’ Seismic Research Center, told the Associated Press news agency.

“Anybody who would have not heeded the evacuation, they need to get out immediately,” Joseph said.

As yet, there have been no reports of deaths or injuries, but drinking water supplies on the island have been polluted and experts have raised concerns about the safety of residents who have refused to leave.

“There was a very large explosion – the largest to date from this event – this morning at about 4:15 am,” Colvin Harry, programme manager at NBC Radio in Kingstown, the capital city of St Vincent and the Grenadines, said on Monday.

“There has been a continuous process now of venting from the location of the volcano,” Harry told Al Jazeera.

He said people are now running out of clean drinking water because supplies have become “highly contaminated” due to the ash from the volcano.

La Soufriere last erupted in 1979, while a previous eruption in 1902 killed about 1,600 people.

The volcano started showing signs of activity in December and began erupting again on April 9.

Preliminary reports indicate flows from the volcano have destroyed nearby farms and structures.

“Scientists have advised this may go on for days. It may go on for weeks. It may go on well beyond that and there may be very large explosions from time to time throwing even more ash into the atmosphere,” Harry said.

“It’s not going to be a pretty picture when we get full view of things,” he said.

Experts have raised concerns about residents who refuse to evacuate.

It is unclear how many people have remained in their homes, but one government minister who toured the island’s northeast region on Sunday said he saw a few dozen people in the community of Sandy Bay alone.

Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves has urged people to leave, telling them it is unsafe.

Gonsalves also said during the weekend that it could take four months before life goes back to normal on St Vincent.

Richard Robertson, a seismic researcher, told NBC Radio that the volcano’s pyroclastic flows – which National Geographic defines as “dense, fast-moving flow[s] of solidified lava pieces, volcanic ash, and hot gases” – would have razed everything in their way.

“Anything that was there – man, animal, anything … they are gone,” Robertson said. “And it’s a terrible thing to say it.”
