Nicely done. "preheat" in that case, though.
> First, you must get the electrons up to speed and then ramp up their energy using electric fields and a precisely engineered tube of ridges
That is because after a "suitably high" energy, the speed doesn't change much because of "that speed limit".
This wouldn't make an "atom smasher" either (no hadrons), but if you add:
1) An antielectron source
2) The calorimeters and other detector stuff
"You are precisely correct, civilian nuclear plants ARE derived from U.S. nuclear submarine development"
In a large, vague way yes.
On the other hand, Fukushima-style Boiling Water Reactors do NOT fint into submarines.
For that, you have Pressurized Water Reactors: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_PWR_reactors
> But the public trusted the nuclear designers before
When was that?
So.... Mr "Retired Physicist" talking from on high to the rubes...
It's all down to ignorance and nuclear lobbying? And a lack of logic?
But on the other hand, relying on solar/nuclear is faith and the infrastructure is crutters anyways because of economic uncertainty over the price of electricity?

Yeah. I despair of my profession.
You drive down to Geneva then turn left at CERN. Take the lift downwards underneath the "Science and Technology Center" copper-colored ball. At level -1.666 there will be a big red button with gothic lettering spelling

Behind da paywall, we find:
Whether Russian training of foreign nuclear workers raises concern or not, it is vital to preventing reactor accidents, many of which are caused in whole or in part by human-operator error. “Even small reactors require training people up in a big, big way,” Sokolski says. Russia has been training newcomers in Obninsk, a two-hour drive from Moscow. New dorms and classrooms are being added here to old ones to handle a flood of foreigners expected in the coming years. Far from home, the first of some 600 Turkish students who will study here — baby-faced and hopeful — sip tea and look to their bright futures as their country’s first nuclear workers. “Thank God there’s Skype” to break the tedium, 21-year-old Gökcehan Tosun says in a coffee shop near her dorm. Next to her is Olgun Köse, practicing his English, a relief after months of grueling Russian lessons. “We’ve seen much cold, we’ve seen minus 35 degrees,” he says, his eyes widening at the memory of his first Russian winter. Yet with guaranteed careers and good salaries ahead, they are the envy of their friends.
Later that night some of the Turks will play in a band, Rockkuyu, after Turkey’s Akkuyu nuclear project. Köse talks of how oil is “finished,” how solar is too expensive, and how nucle ar energy is green, “fast and beautiful.”
The students believe the new reactors will give Turkey, and themselves, entrée into a scientifically advanced and sustainable future. “Turkey will grow up,” Köse says. And Russia will be right there to help them.
> The trouble with a Uranium fission reactor is that it inevitably breeds Plutonium
Very inefficiently and very easy to check. Unless your reactor is a Windscale model with a permanent feed. And then you need a reprocessing plant.
Which why the perma-shitting over Iran's pressurized water reactor is just fakery btw.
> U233 is quite definitely fissile.
Amurricans tried it and it didn't work particularly well. It's also easy to detect and difficult to handle because of the gamma-ray barbeque you are building when using U233. Use Pu, young man.

Sure the profitability isn't just in the subsidies?

I don't believe any of that.

Truly Quantitative Easing is working.
Spamhaus CIO Richard Cox removed from RIPE Anti-Abuse Working Group, 18 November 2010:
James Blessing, concerned Internet citizen, said he noticed that Co-Chair Richard Cox tends often not to be present at RIPE Meetings or not involved, unless it is to be hostile towards RIPE itself. He asked if Richard was the correct person to be working group co-chair.
Working Group Co-Chair Brian Nisbet said he contacted Richard and asked him to respond to comments that had been made, but Brian had not heard back from Richard in relation to this.
Jim Reid, Internet citizen, said this was a delicate issue, and even if the co-chair of a working group was critical of RIPE, that is not necessarily a bad thing. He said, however, that his opinion was that Richard crossed a line insofar as his comments were unfair and unjustified, and he confused RIPE with the RIPE NCC in his comments, which is not helpful. He said Richard’s comments unfairly damaged the reputation of RIPE, the RIPE NCC and the Anti-Abuse Working Group.
Rob Blokzijl, RIPE Chair, noted that this is the first time there has been a situation like this in the history of RIPE. Rob noted that the RIPE Chair, the Chairman of the RIPE NCC Executive Board and the RIPE NCC Managing Director met with Richard where they tried to clear up some misunderstandings. He said all three who met with Richard are disappointed that the outcome of this meeting, where they thought issues had been cleared up, were not reflected in subsequent posts from Richard that were published on websites. He said he felt that if you were elected to chair a working group by the RIPE community then you had a responsibility to that community and to its secretariat, the RIPE NCC. He concluded that it would be better for the community if Richard would step down so it would be clear that when he spoke he was speaking for himself and not the RIPE community.
Brian said he had discussed the matter with Rob prior to the working group session and they agreed that the working group had the authority to appoint its co-chairs and, therefore, to remove them. Brian asked if anyone was willing to stand up and object to Richard Cox being removed as Co-Chair of the Anti-Abuse Working Group. As nobody took this action, Brian declared that consensus had been reached. He said that he would require a new co-chair and he expressed his wishes that one could be in place by the RIPE 62 Meeting.

Not a friend of spam but not a friend of Spamhaus either, having been bitten by their enthusiastic policies which are on the level of Team Amurrica and the Centre for the Propagation of Democracy in the Middle East before.
A good read:
Unrelated but at least Cyberbunker is funny:
I feel I'm gonna host with those guys.
Indeed. Even sicker to have a society that permits people like you with their morals all twisted out of shape running around freely. Why not check into a rehab clinic?

Like buying region-locked phones, commenting on Orly articles is not necessarily recommended.
"provide customers with optimal mobile experience"
In an NSA-like least offensive enhancement of the truth, this actually means the customer wanders around in confused fashion looking for a maintenance shop able to unlock the thing.
Hipsters Hurling Heavily as Holy Handhelds Have Hidden Hooks into Hindbrains?
Just because it's fun and it lead to moans about the Pristine Female-ish Martian Desert being ruthlessly violated by the patriarchic Hand of Man!
Ridiculous! Gigantic biorobots launched from underneath Tokyo and driven by schoolgirls is where it's at!
I don't see this. Some of their stuff is reasonable enough.
Dems are pretty evil in their own way. Controlling people and making them dependent "for their own good" (actually to placate union interests and liberal fantasies) is not a Good Thing.
> vast sums of unclear origin
The thing that should ACTUALLY alarm people is that the "debt ceiling" is being raised.
Where did all the money go? The
magic negro most liberal president ever spent it on weaponry, warfare and surveillance mostly, I guess. And bureaucracy, i.e. people solving the problems that they create in the first place (aka. the invisible jobless support program)
Did I mention that quantitative easing is still transferring peoples' wealth to well-connected interests and wallstreet playas? It's not like Republicans aren't already getting their coffers filled.
Actually for some reason the airliner crew didn't notice they were off course.
There was an unresolved question about why the sun wasn't up yet when it should have been. Didn't ring any alarm bells. They must have been overworked.

Care to explain why or are just another guy on the Putin demonization bandwagon so prevalent in the

> in this case natural gas feeding the cells
I hate to say so, but this is a non-renewable getting oxidized to CO_2 to obtain energy.
Is it more efficient than a
white-fluffy-cat-stroking evil nuclear reactornon-threatening coal plant? I dunno.
Additionally, where those submarine diesels german?
Because it doesn't go through a lot of ultracold rubidium, Einstein.
"Here we demonstrate a quantum nonlinear medium inside which individual photons travel as massive particles with strong mutual attraction, such that the propagation of photon pairs is dominated by a two-photon bound state"
This is actually the same idea that says that particles get their rest mass from interaction with the surrounding
mediumvacuum, via the Higgs field.
Particular applications of this technique include all-optical switching, deterministic photonic quantum logic and the generation of strongly correlated states of light
Hell yeah. That sounds useful at least.
"The physics of what's happening in these molecules is similar to what we see in the movies"
We don't see no physics happening in the movies, only cool medieval magic in the first tirlogy, and senseless rationalising crud in the followup.
That would be an accidental inon exchange.

No it's because of cross-subsidy.
Stop designing interfaces to the audio/video hardware that look like something coming out of a soldering shop that received mechanical dials and random analog hardware from a B-52 yard sale, glued it together and plastered made-up and trademarked logos everywhere on the resulting box. That kind of old-style hardware was designed not because it was kewl but because there was no other way.
DOING SO TODAY IS DUMB. IT'S CONFUSING! IT'S NEEDLESSLY COMPLICATED. IT'S FOR 15-YEAR OLDS!
It gets even worse when the flexibility of a computer-interface is added in at random points (Do you hear, Amarok designer? Yes, get rid of your shitty volume control button first, then get rid of the rest of your shit too.)

I see "Foreign Policy" is luridly biggening this up like one of its customary Nukes From Iran Next Week stories, talking about how this enables the Chinaman to put logical bombs into our plane software.
Western systems are not only badly protected with managers unable to resist clicking on attachements, they do not have source code control and change management either.
