The U.S. Energy Dept. is storing at least 820 million kg of nuclear & non-nuclear materials in inventory at 44 sites in 19 states: spent nuclear fuel, plutonium, natural & enriched uranium, depleted uranium, lithium, sodium, lead, chemicals, weapons components, scrap metal & material. Three materials make up an estimated 95% of the total: depleted uranium, scrap metal, & lithium. Left unattended, much of this material could present environmental, health, or safety risks. Maintaining these materials in a safe condition costs millions of dollars/year.

These workshop proceedings assess the third party liability and compensation mechanisms that would be implemented by participating countries in the event of a nuclear accident taking place within or near their borders. To do so, two fictitious accident scenarios were developed: one involving a fire in a nuclear installation located in the Slovak Republic and resulting in the release of significant amounts of radioactive materials off-site, and the other a fire on board a ship transporting enriched uranium hexafluoride along the Danube River. The first scenario was designed to involve the great

As a normal young man at age eighteen, I encountered the natural fears associated with breaking the ice with women who were unknown to me.I have learned to think and act differently from most men, and have enjoyed the company of hundreds of ladies, which has enriched my life with many great experiences.I can see men repeating the same mistakes over and over again when they try to attract a woman. Alarmingly, eighteen years later I have discovered many men in later years have not developed any skills in breaking the ice - they are still using the same unsuccessful methods they tried in their te

Brahms enriched the genre of chorus and orchestra with two impressive works from the early 1880s: In 1881, he set a text to Schiller's Nanie (Op. 82, four-part chorus and orchestra) and the next year (1882) he set Goethe's Song of the Fates (Op. 89, six-part chorus and orchestra).Goethe's text for Gesang der Parzen (Song of the Fates), Op. 89 explores the concept of fate as it relates to mankind. The text admonishes us to "Fear the Gods! They hold the power In eternal hands And can use it As they please." Brahms' setting portrays the contrast between the capriciousness of the Fates and the unc

Built in the 1940s, the Y-12 Nat. Security Complex, located in Oak Ridge, TN, is the NNSA primary site for enriched uranium activities. Because Y-12 facilities are outdated and deteriorating, NNSA is building a more modern facility -- known as the Uranium Processing Facility (UPF). NNSA plans to include more advanced technologies in the UPF to make uranium processing and component production safer. This report: (1) assessed NNSA's estimated cost and schedule for constructing the UPF; (2) determined the extent to which UPF will use new, experimental technologies, and identify resultant risks; a

"Nanie" (Song of Lamentation) is not about simple despair or mere complaint. Even in such dark moments, Schiller's romanticism is expressed as a yearning for the unattainable. The work opens with "Auch das Schone muss sterben!" (Even
