Sweden's nuclear power plant operators have until the end of 2015 to submit plans to the country's regulator on implementing permanent safety improvements by 2020 to ensure independent reactor core cooling.
Seasonal behavior is important for fitness in temperate environments but it is unclear how progeny gain their initial seasonal entrainment. Plants use temperature signals to measure time of year, and changes to life histories are therefore an important consequence of climate change. Here we show that in Arabidopsis the current...
The development of novel antitumor agents that have high efficacy in suppressing tumor growth, have low toxicity to nontumor tissues, and exhibit rapid localization in the targeted tumor sites is an ongoing avenue of research at the interface of chemistry, cancer biology, and pharmacology. Supramolecular metal-based coordination complexes (SCCs) have...
Translation initiation can occur by multiple pathways. To delineate these pathways by single-molecule methods, fluorescently labeled ribosomal subunits are required. Here, we labeled human 40S ribosomal subunits with a fluorescent SNAP-tag at ribosomal protein eS25 (RPS25). The resulting ribosomal subunits could be specifically labeled in living cells and in vitro....
Senior figures from the Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation are attending open public forums to explain the progress of the United Arab Emirates' nuclear energy program.
Repairs to turbine of unit 4 at Belgium's Doel nuclear power plant are almost complete and the reactor could be restarted ten days earlier than previously planned.
SverdNIIkhimmash has won a RUB5.7 billion ($784 million) contract to design, manufacture and supply equipment for fuel module fabrication and the start-up of "minimum re-fabrication" of fuel for nuclear power plants. SverdNIIkhimmash is a subsidiary of Rosatom's engineering division Atomenergomash.
Billionaire Democrat Tom Steyer fantasizes himself a Jedi in the ‘Star Wars-like battle’ of global warming
Warmist Naomi Klein blames ‘white supremacy’ for world’s failure to fight the ‘existential crisis’ of global warming – ‘Racism is what has made it possible to systematically look away from the climate threat for more than two decades’
‘Canada should nix climate deal’ – ‘It was a huge mistake to get involved in the UN’s climate negotiations’
Unit 1 of the Fangjiashan plant in China's Zhejiang province has become China's 22nd nuclear power reactor to enter commercial operation.

Developing new nuclear technologies requires overcoming considerable financial and regulatory hurdles, as the promise of clean, efficient electricity remains essential to US energy policy, the Nuclear Energy Institute said, following a meeting on 11 December of a House Science Committee.
More than 60 leading scientists are urging environmentalists to set aside their preconceptions about nuclear power.
Warmist Laments about UN climate summit: ‘The result has been an embarrassment’ – Lima, Peru, Climate change negotiations: One word undermines the entire thing.
http://www.slate.com/blogs/future_tense/2014/12/14/lima_peru_climate_change_negotiations_one_word_undermines_the_entire_thing.html The U.N. process isn’t where the action is on climate anymore. Progressive cities, transformative industries, and mass protests have the best chance of providing the tipping point that’s needed. These talks are a distraction from the kind of urgent, on-the-ground work that needs to happen in order to steer the world’s economy toward a [...]
