Nuclear Savage: The Islands of Secret Project 4.1
[link to www.variety.com]

[snip]

Describing the Marshall Islands as "paradise turned upside-down," Horowitz contrasts images of the fully operational Ronald Reagan Ballistic Missile Defense Test Site on Kwajalein Atoll with abandoned parts of the archipelago, where radiation levels remain too high for former residents and their families to return. Footage of living conditions on Ebeye Island, home to some 16,000 displaced persons occupying just 65 acres, strongly supports Horowitz's claim that this destination has become "the ghetto of the Pacific."

Whether or not auds subscribe to Horowitz's proposal that the Marshall Islands are a "microcosm of what modern man has done to the entire world," few will be left unmoved by the indisputable evidence of lives being severely affected by the weapons testing program.

Fukushima whistleblower: 'We shouldn't have been there'
[link to www.nzherald.co.nz]

[snip]

Shinichi's radiation exposure that day alone exceeded half the government's annual exposure limit, and he had to stop working on plant jobs soon afterward.

Out of fear of harassment of his family due to the tendency of some Japanese to stigmatize those perceived as different or as troublemakers, Shinichi agreed to speak with the AP and several Japanese reporters on condition his face not be photographed.

On Tuesday, he filed a complaint with a labor standards office in Tokyo, asking authorities to confirm TEPCO's safety violations and issue improvement orders. He also is seeking penalties up to six months in jail or fines of up to 500,000 yen ($6,250) under the Industrial Safety and Health Act against the company that supervised him.

Officials drafting new regulations raked in millions
Nuke industry funded NRC's safety experts

Four of the six members on a government panel drafting new nuclear safety regulations each received between ¥3 million and ¥27 million in payments, donations and grants from entities in the atomic energy industry in the last three to four years, the Nuclear Regulation Authority said.

But after the new watchdog disclosed the data Friday, its secretariat said all four members "were selected in line with regulations, and there should thus be no problem" over their appointment.

Nuclear reactor's plan for handling a catastrophic flood scrutinized
CHICAGO -- The Nuclear Regulatory Commission said Friday that it has asked Exelon Generation to address concerns over how the company would handle a catastrophic flood at the Dresden Nuclear Station in northern Illinois, after recent inspections indicated potential problems.

Among the concerns is how the company would refuel diesel pumps that circulate water to cool the reactor and how it would keep equipment from becoming clogged with flood debris, said NRC spokeswoman Viktoria Mitlyng. The commission sent a letter to the company Thursday, and Exelon has 30 days to respond.

She said there is no immediate safety risk, but the goal is to keep the site's two reactors safe in the event of a worst-case flood, like the one that swamped the

Reactor is shut down at Comanche Peak nuclear plant
One of the two reactors at the Comanche Peak nuclear power plant near Glen Rose was shut down early Friday after a cooling pump overheated, the operator reported.
According to an event report filed with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Unit 1 was shut down manually at 1:42 a.m. because of "high temperature indications" in a motor bearing on one of four huge pumps that circulate cooling water around the reactor.

Vogtle 3&4 complaint concerning cost dispute

Georgia Power and the co-owners of Vogtle units 3 and 4 have filed a complaint concerning the cost dispute with Westinghouse and Shaw in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Georgia, Augusta Division.

The complaint, filed Thursday, claims that Georgia Power and the co-owners do not owe the contractors more than $900 million ($425 million is Georgia Power's share) in disputed costs resulting from design changes to certain equipment and components of the plant, and costs associated with delays in the project schedule related to the timing of approval of the design control document and issuance of the construction and operating licenses.

4 members of gov't nuclear safety team got funding from utilities
TOKYO — Four members of a Japanese government team that sets atomic reactor safety standards received funding from utility companies or nuclear manufacturers, raising questions about their neutrality in the wake of last year’s tsunami-triggered disaster.

The Nuclear Regulation Authority said that Nagoya University Professor Akio Yamamoto received 27.14 million yen over the past three years for research on reactors. That included 6.28 million yen from a subsidiary of Tokyo Electric Power Co, the utility that runs the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant that suffered meltdowns last year.

New nuke reactor to go into operation next year

GYEONGJU, South Korea, Nov. 4 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's newest power-generating nuclear reactor will likely begin commercial operation during the first half of next year after being loaded with fuel rods this month, its builder said Sunday.

The Shin (New) Wolsong 2 reactor, located about 370 kilometers southeast of Seoul, will be ready to be put into commercial operation in May of next year following a seven-month trial run. Samsung C&T Corp. said.

Questions arise about shuttering of Kewaunee nuclear power reactor
Residents who live near the Kewaunee Power Station with its 556-megawatt nuclear reactor still are absorbing the recent news that the plant will shut down in May, taking with it 655 jobs and leaving behind — possibly for decades — scores of concrete canisters filled with spent nuclear waste.

The loss of the jobs as well as the hundreds of thousands of dollars Dominion Resources pays locally in lieu of property taxes is unsettling enough, local officials say. More disturbing, they say, are the 42 containers of nuclear waste that will remain sitting just off the shore of Lake Michigan.

"We've been lied to for 35 years," Dave Hardtke, chairman of the town of Carlton, said of the waste. "When they built that plant, the federal government said they were going to move the waste. That was 35 years ago, and look where it is sitting." [link to host.madison.com]

Feedwater system flaw shuts down Nine Mile Point 1 nuclear plant
Scriba, NY – The Nine Point Unit 1 nuclear plant in Scriba shut down this morning after a component failed that controls the water level in the vessel containing its nuclear fuel, the plant’s owner said.

The automatic shutdown took place at 8:23 a.m. when instruments detected too much water in the reactor pressure vessel at Nine Mile Point Nuclear Station Unit 1, said Jill Lyon, speaking for Constellation Energy Nuclear Group, the owner.

"We've been lied to for 35 years," Dave Hardtke, chairman of the town of Carlton, said of the waste. "When they built that plant, the federal government said they were going to move the waste. That was 35 years ago, and look where it is sitting."

Residents worried about the 521 metric tons of nuclear waste stored near their homes — especially in light of the federal government's failure to come up with a permanent storage plan.

"This all came as an awful surprise," said Paplham. "That waste may be sitting there for 200 years."

A federal plan to store the nation's spent nuclear fuel beneath Yucca Mountain in Nevada was derailed last year when local opposition to the repository, which was already under construction, prompted the shutdown of the project.

According to that report, about 3,000 metric tons of spent nuclear fuel is in storage at nine sites across the country where commercial reactors have been shuttered.

This is one of Japans biggest Problems,
there is nothing that is really independent!

Afaik there are only a handful of Universities
who are not owned by one of the major Player
(Mitsubishi for example)
ergo: every Academic Person is more or less "owned" by them!

And even when you are "less Owned" or didn't care
you will never discredit your Doctorate Supervisor!
(You can't be a Academic without someone who is taking care of it,
it is not enough to write a First-Class Doctorate)

This is one of the reasons why i think that we need
independent Education in Japan, in Asia and in the whole World.

A University must be Independent and should never depend
on "Give-aways" from the big Players!

Local awareness of the bomb was renewed when a deep sea salvage company, run by former Air Force personnel and a CIA agent, disclosed the existence of the bomb and offered to locate it for a million dollars. Local residents responded to the revelation with fear and outrage. The Air Force claims there is no need for concern and that the only danger is "localized heavy metal contamination."
Whether or not the bomb could accidentally cause a thermonuclear detonation is up for debate because of conflicting documents. Officially the government claims that the weapon's capsule needed to trigger a nuclear blast was not in the bomb. However, this contradicted a 1966 letter written by Assistant to the Secretary of Defense William Jack Howard to the Chairman of the Joint Committee on Atomic Weapons. The letter, declassified in 1996, reviews the Congressional testimony that Howard gave on lost and nuclear weapons. The bomb off of Tybee is mentioned as being complete with its capsule. To this day it has still yet to be found.


Tybee Beach is the one I go to the most. I didn't know there was a bomb.

"If my emergency diesel generators go out, which happens a lot, they can sometimes use fire hoses to cool me off, too. I’m glad the NRC spokesman brought that up the other day when Hurricane Sandy happened. A lot of people were probably worried about that. This exact same thing happened to some of my friends in Japan! Fire hoses seemed to work OK for them, but I’m not sure, because no one really talks about it. I think there might have been some explosions or something. Man do they have a nice view from there though! And I heard Pacific sushi is really good!"
