Ruminations of the Easily Amused for June 22 2009

22 June 2009 at 1:11:04 PM

Another HOT HOT day, in which I will attempt to spend time either in the car or the house. The GRISD school board meeting is tonight and they have a budget component at 5:30 pm before the regular meeting at 7. I'm going to hunt for an outside *mister* that attaches to a hose, seems like the perfect day for that.

Interesting article about geocaching in Johnson County. Some people don't like the geocaches in cemeteries.

Remember two years ago when the Paluxy River was so high? And Courtney Butler of Stephenville died?Very nice article in the FW Star-Telegram about what happened that day and how Carnegie is honoring her for attempting to save some friend's lives.  Here's some pics and video from where we wrote about it at the time (June 2007)

Ugh. Applying for a job in Bozeman, Montana? You'll have to give them your Facebook/Youtube/Myspace accounts... and passwords.

How many atomic leaks inside Britain's nuclear power stations? A lot!

The report discloses that between 2001-08 there were 1,767 safety incidents across Britain's nuclear plants. About half were subsequently judged by inspectors as serious enough "to have had the potential to challenge a nuclear safety system". They were "across all areas of existing nuclear plant", including Sellafield in Cumbria and Aldermaston and Burghfield in Berkshire, says Weightman, chief inspector of the Nuclear Installations Inspectorate (NII).

In an accident at Sizewell A in Suffolk in January 2007, cooling water leaked from a pond containing highly radioactive spent fuel. The operator was not prosecuted for breaching safety rules, according to the NII's official investigation, partly because NII resources were "stretched".

In May 2007 a manhole at Dounreay in northern Scotland was found to be contaminated with plutonium. A series of other incidents occurred at Sellafield, including a fault with a trap door meant to provide protection from highly radioactive waste in September 2008, and the contamination of five workers at a plutonium fuel plant in January 2007.

Did TSA Harrass this man? He recorded them harrassing him.
