This Week’s SPECIAL Interviews:

Following the devastation to New Orleans by Hurricane Ida, mainstream media has failed to cover the situation at the Waterford nuclear facility only 25 miles west of the city.  The facility is shut down, without grid power, and currently cooling the reactor with emergency back-up generators.

But is this enough? Will the fuel last long enough? Does this emergency system have enough “juice” to do its job until grid power is restored? And what is the exact nature of the other problems this nuclear reactor is facing in the days, weeks, even months ahead?

We talked with three of our most reliable sources to learn the extent of what we might be facing:

  • Arnie Gundersen is a nuclear engineer and expert witness who serves as the chief engineer for Fairewinds Associates, Inc, a paralegal services and expert testimony firm, as well as a member of Fairewinds Energy Education’s Board of Directors.
  • Maggie Gundersen is a journalist, paralegal, and former atomic power industry spokesperson who founded Fairewinds in 2008. She is the president of Fairewinds Energy Education as well as a member of the Board of Directors.
  • Nancy Foust is Communications Manager & Research Team Member, a not-for-profit research collective that holds and manages the world’s largest public archive of data on the Fukushima disaster. She has been following Hurricane Ida’s progress and damages from the first, and here provides a clear overview of the current situation as of the time of our talk, noon Pacific time on Monday, August 30.

    As the initial injunction of the Publishers Association is six years old, it is not obvious whatever kinds of preparatory actions have been implemented from the beginning. More current orders offer dynamically adaptable alternatives for modifications to the surface domain and IP address that seek to reduce their impacts, but may drift out of date if they are not present in a case of the Publishers Association.
    ws, a site not listed in the blocking list of TalkTalk. A full range of other ebook download sites, like the Sci-Hub, DownloadBooks, Ebook777, BookSC, ZLibrary and Ebook3000, can only aggravate the problem if visitedors to that domain locate a list.

    Also a thing to mention is that an online business administration diploma is designed for college students to be able to without problems proceed to bachelor degree education. The 90 credit education meets the lower bachelor education requirements when you earn the associate of arts in BA online, you should have access to the latest technologies in such a field. Some reasons why students have to get their associate degree in business is because they are interested in this area and want to get the general instruction necessary before jumping in to a bachelor college diploma program. Many thanks for the tips you actually provide inside your blog.
