Next Saturday is the final for my class. So I think I'm going to be mostly reviewing Japanese learned over the last 10 weeks or so.   I had to miss one class due to having issues with my father's care in the nursing home. No emergency, but just some legal issues I needed to take care of.

riita=quarrel
ydin=nuclear
jäte=rubbish
säilyttäminen=preservation
turha=unnecessary
Riita ydinjätteen säilyttämisestä Suomessa on ehkä turha.
The controversy about nuclear waste storage in Finland is perhaps unnecessary.

koskea=concern
rahasumma=sum of money
Energiaprofessori Esa Vakkilaisen mielestä riita on turha, koska se koskee melko pientä rahasummaa.
Energy Professor Esa Vakkilaisen's belief is that the controversy is unnecessary because it concerns quite small sums of money.

Energiayhtiö Fennovoima säästää vain 200 - 300 miljoonaa euroa, jos sen ydinjätettä säilytetään Länsi-Suomessa Olkiluodossa.
Energy company Fennovoima would save about 200 to 300 million Euros if it stored nuclear waste in west Finland in Olkiluoto.

Ydinjäteyhtiö Posiva ei halua säilyttää Fennovoiman ydinjätettä Olkiluodossa.
Nuclear Waste company Posiva does not want to store Fennovoima's nuclear waste in Olkiluoto.

Posiva rakentaa Olkiluotoon ydinjätteen säilytyspaikkaa muita energiayhtiöitä varten.
Posiva is building in Olkiluoto a nuclear waste storage facility for other energy companies.
