If you must pay attention to just one wiseguy this week, ignore me!  I am plenty interesting... but nothing I can possibly say is as important as what Lawrence Lessig says here in this TED talk.    It is literally make or break as to whether the American Republic and its experiment can continue.  

Lawrence Lessig: We the People, and the Republic we must reclaim.  DOn't yawn and assume you know about this.  Watch it.

Good luck.
 
Portable Fission Reactor

Eighteen-year-old Taylor Wilson has designed a compact fission nuclear reactor that could one day burn waste from old atomic weapons to power anything from homes and factories to space colonies.

The American teen, who gained fame four years ago after designing a fusion reactor he planned to build in the garage of his family's home, shared his latest endeavor at a TED Conference in southern California on Thursday. 

"It's about bringing something old, fission, into the 21st Century," Wilson said. "I think this has huge potential to change the world." He has designed a small reactor capable of generating 50-100 megawatts of electricity, enough to power as many as 100,000 homes. 

The reactor can be made assembly-line style and powered by molten radioactive material from nuclear weapons, Wilson said. The relatively small, modular reactor can be shipped sealed with enough fuel to last for 30 years.

Wow Grazie i miei amici. Abbiamo un buona comunità ecco. Mi piacciono imparare lingue e questa comunità mi aiuta molto.

If you guys haven't scene this website it has been a really good resource for me. Duolingo.com. Check it out. It was developed by a few professors in Carnegie Mellon university computer science department. The website is crowd sourcing the translation of the entire Internet.

Google the Ted talk by its creator Luis Von Ahn

Good news here. Japan has an impeccable track record but more vigilance is never a bad thing.

That's a good finding I was wondering about the repercussions of the forced closures from a economic standpoint. It is good to hear there is some legal basis for the utilities claims.

It's great that someone wealthy enough and motivated enough to do something has come to these realisations. However, I do have some doubts about TerraPower's approach.

IFRs have failed to realise their promise before. The practical viability of fast spectrum reactors was already in doubt even without the added complexity of the travelling wave concept. TerraPower's disposal strategy is an eyebrow raiser too.

Projects based on the LFTR concept (e.g. Flibe) have the most promise today. I do wish Mr. Gates would fund that approach instead of or as well as TerraPower.

Great post
 
You develop an instant global consciousness, a people orientation, an intense dissatisfaction with the state of the world, and a compulsion to do something about it. From out there on the moon, international politics look so petty. You want to grab a politician by the scruff of the neck and drag him a quarter of a million miles out and say, “Look at that, you son of a bitch.”

- Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14 astronaut
