TOKYO — Several industrialized countries have turned their backs on nuclear power as a result of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, including one that has already begun permanently shutting functioning plants. That country is not Japan.

“Germany chose to get rid of nuclear power because of Fukushima, while the United States is still in favor, but what about Japan, where the accident took place?” said Jun Tateno, who has written several books on nuclear power. “We still have not had a proper public debate about the most fundamental question: Do we want nuclear power’s low-cost electricity for growth, or do we want a safer, nuclear-free society

The lasers fuelling hopes of unlimited, clean nuclear energy

A milestone has been reached in the 60-year struggle to harness the nuclear reactions that power the Sun in an experiment that could lead to a way of producing an unlimited source of clean and sustainable energy in the form of nuclear fusion.

Scientists in California said on Wednesday night that they have for the first time managed to release more energy from their nuclear fusion experiment than they put into it,

Stock Trader Update 07 February 2014


This is just a quick note to let you know how our new venture, 'Stock Trader' has been doing.

This decline in stock prices inhibited our ability to trade, especially on the long side.

Most of the time we were in cash which is about as dull as dish water, however,

By Bernard L. Weinstein

Global warming notwithstanding, 2013-14 will likely go down as America's coldest winter in decades.

Several weeks ago, when America was assaulted by the "polar vortex," nearly 200 million people were dealing with subfreezing weather, and record low temperatures were being recorded in many eastern and southern communities.
