#Japan Marks 70th Anniversary of #Hiroshima & #Nagasaki | Atomic Bombing | Rare Photos

#Rare #Photos: Virtual photo exhibition! | "Remembering 6 August 1945 — 9 August 1945"


The appearance of people was . . . well, they all had skin blackened by burns. . . . They had no hair because their hair was burned, and at a glance you couldn't tell whether you were looking at them from in front or in back. . . . They held their arms bent [forward] like this . . . and their skin - not only on their hands, but on their faces and bodies too - hung down. . . . If there had been only one or two such people . . . perhaps I would not have had such a strong impression. But wherever I walked I met these people. . . . Many of them died along the road - I can still picture them in my mind -- like walking ghosts. -survivor.

I saw the atom bomb. I was four then. I remember the cicadas chirping. The atom bomb was the last thing that happened in the war and no more bad things have happened since then, but I don't have my Mummy any more. So even if it isn't bad any more, I'm not happy.
--- Kayano Nagai (survivor).

    The pumpkin field in front of the house was blown clean. Nothing was left of the whole thick crop, except that in place of the pumpkins there was a woman's head. I looked at the face to see if I knew her. It was a woman of about forty. She must have been from another part of town -- I had never seen her around here. A gold tooth gleamed in the wide-open mouth. A handful of singed hair hung down from the left temple over her cheek, dangling in her mouth. Her eyelids were drawn up, showing black holes where the eyes had been burned out. . . . She had probably looked square into the flash and gotten her eyeballs burned.

How many nuclear power plants are in the United States, and where are they located?

 There are currently 61 commercially operating nuclear power plants with 99 nuclear reactors in 30 states in the United States. Thirty-five of these plants have two or more reactors. The Palo Verde plant in Arizona has 3 reactors and had the largest combined net summer generating capacity of 3,937 megawatts (MW) in 2012.  Fort Calhoun in Nebraska with a single reactor had the smallest net summer capacity at 479 megawatts (MW) in 2012.

Four reactors were taken out of service in 2013: the Crystal River plant in Florida with one reactor in February; the Kewaunee plant in Wisconsin with one reactor in April; and the San Onofre plant in California with two reactors in June.  The Vermont Yankee plant in Vermont, with a single reactor, was taken out of service in December 2014.

France’s EDF, Areva agree nuclear reactor deal | #Business, #News
 
World's Biggest Nuclear Operator EDF, Areva agree nuclear reactor deal
Aug 1, 2015

French state-controlled utility EDF is buying a majority stake in the reactor business of nuclear group Areva and will look for partners to take a minority stake. (Jul 30, 2015)

France’s EDF, Areva agree nuclear reactor deal:
Latest update : Aug 1, 2015

French state-controlled utility EDF is buying a majority stake in the reactor business of nuclear group Areva and will look for partners to take a minority stake.

The deal is crucial for France, which generates three quarters of its electricity from nuclear plants and needs to keep Areva alive in order to service its existing reactor fleet, as well as supporting its large nuclear industry with export contracts.

EDF said on Thursday it would buy between 51 percent and 75 percent of Areva's reactor arm Areva NP, while Areva would keep a maximum 25 percent. Areva said separately it would sell at least 75 percent of Areva NP to EDF for about 2 billion euros ($2.2 billion).

EDF chief Jean-Bernard Levy told reporters that if EDF finds no other partners to invest in Areva NP it could end up with 75 percent, but potential partners had already signaled their interest.

"We expect that we will end up with a tripartite situation in which EDF owns 51 percent, Areva 25 percent and one or more partners the rest," Levy said on a conference call.

EDF said in a statement that Areva NP was valued at 2.7 billion euros for the entire unit, adding the two firms would also set up an 80-20 percent EDF-Areva joint venture for the design of new nuclear reactors.

"This is a structural change in the French nuclear reactor industry. From now on there will be only one strategic leadership, one single product policy, and only one export policy," Levy said.

Following due diligence, EDF will submit a binding offer for the reactor unit in the last quarter of 2015 with a view to closing the transaction in the second half of 2016.

EDF said the acquisition of a 51 to 75 percent stake in the reactor business would have a neutral impact on its 2018 cash flow and it would be completely protected from any risks related to Areva's long-delayed Olkiluoto 3 reactor in Finland, where Areva's customer TVO is claiming billions of euros in damages.

In a separate statement, Areva said it had financing needs totaling 7 billion euros for the 2015-17 period. It added that it expected asset sales would generate about 2.4 billion euros and that it would contribute own funds of 1.2 billion.

But it added that it would need a "significant" capital increase. Both EDF and Areva are more than 85 percent owned by the French state.

#Beijing2022: Beijing wins bid to host 2022 Winter Olympic Games
July 31, 2015  
 
Beijing won a narrow victory over its rival bidder city of Almaty in the vote on Friday to become the host of the 2022 Winter Olympics.
Thomas Bach, president of the International Olympic Committee, announced the voting results at the 128th IOC session in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, after both candidate cities gave an emphatic assurance of environmental protection and economic goals.
 
Having staged the Summer Olympics in 2008, the Chinese capital will be the first city ever to host both editions of the Games. It beat Kazakhstan’s Almaty 44-40 in a secret ballot of IOC members.
 
The decision was met with elation in China, where it is seen as a vote of international support for the nation’s efforts to promote winter sports and maintain sustainable economic development. People from Beijing and Zhangjiakou gathered together on Friday to celebrate the Chinese capital’s winning of the right to host the games.
 
On hearing the announcement, the gathering places all turned into scenes of jubilation and cheers. Some people were so excited that tears were rolling down their faces. Other people tossed flowers into the air and set off deafening firecrackers.
 
Chinese Vice-Premier Liu Yandong expressed her warm congratulations to the Beijing bid committee and thanked the whole country for their precious support to Beijing. She also expressed gratitude to all members of the International Olympic Committee and Chinese friends all over the world for supporting Beijing and Zhangjiakou to host the winter games.
 
“We will regard this success as a start,” she said. “And we will make greater efforts to make our country stronger and more prosperous and present a fabulous and excellent Winter Olympics.”
 
The three major complexes for the 2022 Games will be located in downtown Beijing, the suburban Yanqing County in the city’s northwest, as well as Zhangjiakou in neighboring Hebei Province.
 
Five out of the six venues proposed in the Beijing downtown area are already in place, including the iconic Beijing National Stadium (nicknamed “Bird’s Nest”) and the National Aquatics Center (also known as the “Water Cube”). These venues will host all the ice events.
 
The only new facility in the downtown area will be the National Speed Skating Oval, a permanent venue for speed-skating competitions.
 
Snow sports will take place at the National Alpine Ski Center and the National Sliding Center, both of which are still under planning in the mountainous regions of Yanqing and will be developed into high-level training bases and tourism centers after the Games.
 
The rest of the snow events will be held at the new Nordic and Biathlon Center as well as the refurbished Genting Snow Park in Zhangjiakou, around 200 kilometers northwest of Beijing.
 
The three complexes will be connected by new expressways and an intercity high-speed railway. It will take less than an hour to commute between any two venues.
 
Chinese President Xi Jinping sent a letter of appreciation to IOC President Thomas Bach on Friday evening, expressing thanks to IOC for its trust and support in selecting Beijing together with Zhangjiakou as the host of the 2022 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.
 
“Today, Beijing together with Zhangjiakou has won the bid to host the 2022 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games,” President Xi said in the letter. “Let me extend, on behalf of the Chinese government and people, our appreciation to the IOC for its trust and strong support over the years.”
 
“To present a fantastic, extraordinary and excellent Winter Olympics is the aspiration of over 1.3 billion Chinese people. We will fulfill all our commitments and witness, together with the people of all other countries and the IOC, the advent of a new phase in the development of the Olympic winter sports and in the spread of the Olympic spirit.”
 
“The Chinese government and people will implement in good faith the Olympic Agenda 2020, create a new record for the same city to host both the Summer and Winter Olympic Games, and make new contribution to the advancement of the Olympic spirit.”
