    March 16, 2011, Tokyo, Japan]-----50 evacuated workers at Japan's Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant are reportedly back on the job Wednesday, desperately trying to avert a nuclear meltdown.
    U.S. experts say the situation there is dire and workers may be on a suicide mission, as they may likely be exposed to dangerous levels of radiation contamination, now said to be 300 times the normal levels. They are risking their lives attempting to prevent catastrophic radiation poisoning of the Japanese population.
    Conflicting reports have been coming from the Japanese media and government officials since an earthquake and tsunami devastated that country 5 days ago. Some have said the situation was under control and radiation leakage minimal and at safe levels-- to surrounding areas and workers having to be evacuated because the levels were rising to dangerous proportions.
