Potential Radiation Release Nuclear Plant, Louisiana

File originale ‎ (file in formato SVG, dimensioni nominali 716 ...


The plant in question is RiverBend, and it just had an emergency SCRAM on Jan. 9th of this year.
It is located near the town of St. Francisvillie. Of note, 4 days earlier, on Jan.5th of this year, the plant also had a “Seconday Containment “Inoperable” Event with a Radiation Release.
What caused the SCRAM?
Lightning. That’s right LIGHTNING.
Here’s the info and links:
““AUTOMATIC REACTOR SCRAM ON MAIN STEAM ISOLATION DUE TO ELECTRICAL FAULT
On 1/9/16 at 0237 [CST], River Bend Station sustained a reactor scram during a lightning storm. An electrical transient occurred resulting in a full main steam isolation [MSIV] (Group 6) and a Division II Balance of Plant isolation signal. During the scram, level 8 occurred immediately which tripped the feed pumps. A level 3 signal occurred also during the scram. Subsequent level 3 was received three times due to isolated vessel level control. The plant was stabilized and all spurious isolation signals reset, then the MSIVs were restored. The plant is now stable in Mode 3 and plant walkdowns are occurring to assess the transient.”



“Scram!”


Reactor veteran recalls account of the birth of a key word in the nuclear vernacular

Editor’s note: Edwin Blackburn, a millwright in the Research Reactor Division’s HFIR Shop, for a time worked alongside the late Wallace Koehler. Koehler, a renowned physicist who designed and built ORNL’s Small Angle Neutron Scattering Facility, was one of three technicians assigned to man one of the buckets on top of the Stagg Field pile reactor when it first went critical on Dec. 2, 1942. He worked on the Manhattan Project until September 1948 and was a researcher in ORNL’s Solid State Division from 1949 until he died in 1986.Edwin was working on the Small Angle Neutron Scattering Facility when he asked Koehler how he became a physicist.

“He told me he guessed it just happened due to his college days and I inquired just where he attended college. He said the University of Chicago. I said, ‘Isn’t that where they first split the atom?’ He said, ‘Yes, as a matter of fact I was there. As a matter of fact, I was standing directly on top of the pile when it first went critical.’

“I asked then, excitedly, ‘You mean you met Fermi?’ He explained that he was a technician for Fermi. He then immediately asked me, ‘Do you know what scram means?’ I said no, and I guessed two or three things. He told me this story; I’ve never forgotten it.”
by EDWIN BLACKBURN
Webster defines Scram as “A rapid emergency shutdown of a nuclear reactor.” To most of us in the nuclear business this term means “to place the reactor in a safe condition.”

Obama Pledges MORE than $450,000,00 Aid To Columbia, S. America

Would you look at the expressions on these guys' faces!  What do you think?
February 5, 2016
By Roberta Rampton
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama said on Thursday he would ask the U.S. Congress for more than $450 million in aid to help Colombia end “half a century of wrenching conflict” and implement a peace accord aimed at ending Latin America’s longest war. (How about more than that span of time for 'wrenching taxes'?)
http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_3Cw04KGjkvM/TTXVgJzbNLI/AAAAAAAAAFg ...
If approved, the aid would help with (Colombia's security, not ours) security and fighting the drug trade,(Blogger note: how about  closing  our  borders  against drug traffic instead? Now that would be money well-spent.) as well as educating and retraining members of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, the leftist rebel group at war with the government since 1964.
“After half a century of wrenching conflict, the time has come for peace,” Obama said after meeting with Colombian President Juan Manual Santos.
The U.S. government would also commit $33 million to a global program to help the country remove land mines in the next five years, and Obama said he would help mobilize more international aid if the peace deal is reached.
Three previous attempts at an accord failed, but the government and FARC are on the verge of an agreement after four years of talks.
Santos thanked the U.S. government for its long-standing bipartisan support for “Plan Colombia,” $10 billion in funding between 2000 and 2015 for military and social programs that he said helped keep Colombia from becoming a failed state.
The new program, dubbed “Peace Colombia,” would provide about 25 percent more U.S. funding compared with 2016 levels.
Obama pledges more than $450 million aid to help Colombia peace plan ...
Yum, that canary tasted good!

Dee's note: 

Just WHERE do 'they' plan to get all this money?  

From your pocket. my purse,  Grandmom's old age retirement, Granddad's life savings, Grandchildren's future private school education (oh but they can go to a godless public school), aid to Veterans, Social Security,(already we were denied a Soc.Sec.'cost of living raise'). Medicare? Where else? 

You name it. 

Maranatha.

    EXACTLY….It is Sad, some of our veterans are homeless, he is only giving a 1.6% pay increase cause he needs to give to Columbia, Iran, take his famuly on vacation and lets not forget his around The world Trips in the name of “well, I am the President”, wont go visit The Border to Assess surge, wont fund for more police, doesnt make a Special visit to talk to families of Killed in action police, but finds TIME & budget $ to facilitate a Mosque visit, WHY hasnt he been impeached seriously, if a military commander did what he has done time and again,he would be removed.

    I did my time & walked the walk
  2. Where is he getting this money? Congress needs to stop this. If we don’t fix this country first, we will run out of people and money to give to anybody ! 2017 can’t come soon enough. Obama needs to go!
  3. And he has also just recently told border agents to stand down and free incoming illegals, not to send them to be processed for deportation. More of OUR hard-earned tax money to be poured into caring for these who-knows-who, illegal immigrants. America cannot be even a country, much less be Great Again, as long as we don’t protect our borders. Quote: a shocking reversal of policy, U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents are being told…
    …to release illegal immigrants and no longer order them to appear at deportation hearings, essentially a license to stay in the United States, a key agent testified Thursday.
    What’s more, the stand down order includes a requirement that the whereabouts of illegals released are NOT to be tracked.
    “We might as well abolish our immigration laws altogether,” suggested agent Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council.
