To increase public awareness of innovations within the nuclear energy industry and their importance, the Nuclear Energy Institute has produced a series of videos about projects that have been recognized with a Top Industry Practice award. This is the second in a series of four videos that will be posted on the Nuclear Energy Institute’s website on a weekly basis. This video, “Global Ties Boost Nuclear Plant Performance,” highlights an international exchange of best practices by Exelon Nuclear. In its international technical exchange program, Exelon Nuclear has partnered in technical exchange with three of the largest international electric utilities: Korea Hydro and Nuclear Power Co., Tokyo Electric Power Co. and Electricity de France. Together, the four companies operate nearly one-quarter of the nuclear energy plants worldwide. All four have benefited from sharing plant operating experience, best practices, lessons learned, equipment reliability, risk management, and predictive and preventative maintenance practices. Released on July 7, the first video, “High Tech Stress Relief,” looked at the challenge of microscopic stress corrosion cracking in plant systems.

*******www.bestpaydayloanlenders***.nr/ - CRAZY! A berm holding the flooded Missouri River back from a Nebraska nuclear power station collapsed early Sunday, but federal regulators said they were monitoring the situation and there was no danger. The Fort Calhoun Nuclear Station shut down in early April for refueling, and there is no water inside the plant, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission said. Also, the river is not expected to rise higher than the level the plant was designed to handle. NRC spokesman Victor Dricks said the plant remains safe.

Model no : 18A The display unit, which is used to display the results of corresponding temperature of a nuclear plant and to generate a warning signal in the event of rising temperature beyond limits as set. Here the controller continuously polls the temperature with certain regular time intervals and displays over the 7_segment display unit for the Microcontroller to enable the whole operation by executing the program. The temperature readings observed by the microcontroller through temperature sensor are compared with the programmed temperature value to in turn operate the relay that switches on a warning device. The power supply consists of a step down transformer 230/12V, which steps down the voltage to 12V AC. This is converted to DC using a Bridge rectifier. The ripples are removed using a capacitive filter and it is then regulated to +5V using a voltage regulator 7805 which is required for the operation of the microcontroller and other components.

BY ERIK SHUTE AND HARUMENDHAH HELMY You're watching multisource breaking news analysis from Newsy This is Newsy Now and here are the headlines you need to know. After blasts on Friday and early Monday, fears of a third explosion at Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant are surfacing. 180,000 people have been evacuated. RT reports. “Again, we are hearing the third reactor has lost its cooling capacity, increasing fears that it will overheat and cause another blast. Meanwhile, engineers have been using seawater to try to cool down reactors at the complex, which were damaged in the quake to avert a catastrophic nuclear meltdown.” As rescue efforts continue, Japanese officials say the death toll of the earthquake and tsunami may could exceed 10,000 people. Libyan rebels lost control of crucial oil town of Brega over the weekend. As forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi continue to make progress, euronews explains the pressure the rebels face. “The regime appears to be getting closer to the opposition stronghold of Benghazi. The city of Ajdabiya lies on its path. And on Sunday, rebels there were bracing themselves for an attack. Gaddafi has vowed, has he put it, to liberate all of Libya. On state television he said he was certain of victory and that he would bury the rebels.” Also in the Middle East — Bahrain protesters are calling for help from other Arab states, as they face increased violence from law enforcements. Al Jazeera shares this video. “Shocking evidence of the lack of control Bahrain authorities have over the security services. A policeman uses a handgun to reportedly fire live rounds indiscriminately toward protesters. He then retreats to his vehicle.” One thousand troops from Saudi Arabia arrived in Bahrain early today as part of the Gulf Cooperation Council forces, aiming to gain control and maintain stability in the country. In U.S. news -- State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley resigned yesterday over controversial comments he made about the Pentagon’s treatment of Army private Bradley Manning, who is suspected of leaking information to WikiLeaks. CNN reports Crowley called Manning’s placement into solitary confinement "ridiculous, counterproductive and stupid.” At a press conference on Sunday, Crowley said he regrets going public with his statements, but he fears the mistreatment of Manning could undermine the prosecution and hurt President Obama’s worldwide reputation. The former Clinton aide had served the U.S. in and out of uniform for more than 30 years. In sports -- selection Sunday ranked Duke, Kansas, Pittsburgh, and Ohio State as number one seeds for this’s NCAA Basketball Tournament. CBS Sports says it was the Big East conference who really came out on top sending 11 teams to the big dance. CBS Sports reporters talked with tournament chair Jeff Hathaway. Reporter: “Mr. Hathaway I want to know, you’re very familiar with how successful the Big East has been this year -- 11 teams in the tournament. How hard was it to put them into the brackets when you want to avoid some of those second round matchups that could occur. HATHAWAY: “Well certainly it is a challenge to have 11 teams from one conference come into the bracket, but you may know after the ninth team the bracketing policies are relaxed and give us the flexibility to accommodate the bracket.” Stay with Newsy**** for more analysis on news throughout the day.

BY ERIK SHUTE AND HARUMENDHAH HELMY You're watching multisource breaking news analysis from Newsy This is Newsy Now and here are the headlines you need to know. First up — world news. A surge in radiation levels in Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant has forced a temporary stoppage to stabilizing efforts. But a recent update on CNN says the plant’s heroic employees are back on the job again, even though they may be facing a lethal dose of radiation. Traces of radiation have been found in tap water 50 miles away from the nuclear power plant. Japanese Emperor Akihito made a rare, televised address early Wednesday — offering his condolences to victims’ families, while also reminding his people not to give up. Snowfall is currently slowing down much of the country’s relief efforts. (Video: Sky News) Still in world news — an update on Libya. Muammar Gaddafi’s forces are inching closer to overtaking anti-government forces in Benghazi. euronews interviewed a military spokesman who says air strikes on Benghazi have begun. “He said, Gaddafi’s army have reached the frontier with Egypt, and Benghazi is now completely surrounded. Most residents have now reportedly fled the city, leaving it in the hands of rebels, who are gearing up for an all-out attack. Which, if successful, could prove to be the decisive factor for the control of Libya.” Still in the Middle East — Bahrain’s rulers have declared a 3-month long state of emergency, as violence continues to escalate. NewsX reports — the rivalry between Iran and Saudi Arabia may be worsening Bahrain’s situation. “One Saudi soldier was shot dead last night as protesters in Bahrain demonstrated against the entry of Saudi and military force in the country. ... Iran has called the presence of the foreign troops as unacceptable, and says it will complicate the political crisis.” In U.S. news -- Another tour bus crash in New Jersey has killed two people and injured the remaining 41 passengers. It’s the second crash in three days -- and now New York’s finest have had enough. WABC reports. “Descending on Chinatown tuesday, the NYPD taking six tour buses off the road in an aggressive crackdown. Among the buses accused of being unsafe, one belonging to Worldwide Tours, the company that operated the bus on Saturday. Another a super luxury tour bus, the same company from Monday's crash in New Jersey.” In the tech world -- Netflix is not just for streaming movies anymore. The company will reportedly begin funding an original series, while hoping to take over the streaming market. Mashable says the mega-movie-mogul is looking to be “the next HBO.” It’s rumored to have its eyes on remaking the UK political drama, House of Cards, starring Kevin Spacey. Netflix will reportedly dish out $100 million for the rights to air the series, thus entering into the fray with a competitive pool of premium cable channels. One reason for expansion? LA Times reports, Netflix is responsible for 61% of all movies streamed online -- that’s more than all of its competitors combined. Stay with Newsy**** for more analysis on news throughout the day.

BY ERIK SHUTE AND HARUMENDHAH HELMY You're watching multisource breaking video news analysis from Newsy. This is Newsy Now and here are the headlines you need to know. In world news — efforts to restore the cooling system at Japan’s crippled Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Plant resume today. Workers were seen spraying water on the buildings that house Reactors 2 and 3. But, as the BBC reports, this is a complicated process. “Steam’s rising from one of the reactors. Yesterday, there was smoke. The authorities admit they don’t know why.” Official: “There’s no detail assessment and analysis to be conclusive, but we can also say today that this the regulation level was exceeded. So monitoring and analysis will continue.” Still in world news — after a wave of defections from his senior army commanders and diplomats, Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh has now accepted an exit strategy by the end of the year. But The New York Times says that may not satisfy demonstrators — especially after Saleh’s bloody crackdown, which killed 45 people last Friday. A government official says details of the plan are still being worked out. And in Libya, an American warplane crashed overnight. The cause of the crash is said to be engine failure, and both crew members are alive and safe. The incident is the first known setback to the Western coalition as it continues to enforce a no-fly zone over the oil-rich country. Meanwhile, Al Jazeera reports, forces loyal to Gaddafi have not ceded ground on two eastern Libyan towns. “Gaddafi’s forces have lost a lot of tanks and heavy armor in the last two days, but they still have plenty more. They are vulnerable to attack from the air. But on the ground, they’re still a force to be reckoned with.” In health news -- Boston’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital makes history as the first U.S. hospital to perform a full facial transplant, giving a 25-year-old Texan a new lease on life. ABC has more. ANCHOR: “The team of more than 30 physicians, nurses, anesthesiologists, and residents worked for more than 15 hours to replace the facial area of patient Dallas Wiens. Dr. Pomahac spoke at a press conference earlier today.” POMAHAC: “The facial tissues were recovered including the skin, underlying musculature nerves, all based on vessels that were reconnected to the recipient in one block.” In entertainment -- Jimmy Kimmel got an unexpected visitor when Charlie Sheen dropped in on a live broadcast -- bringing with him shameless acts of self promotion and affection for the host. CUBAN: “Charlie [Sheen] is a smart guy.” KIMMEL: “He is a smart guy.” CUBAN: “He doesn’t get near the credit he deserves.” SHEEN: “[Expletive]” (Cheering) KIMMEL: “I had this dream before and it doesn’t end well!” SHEEN: “Me too. But mine ends well!” (Video: ABC) Think his behavior is a little over the top? Sheen’s soon-to-be-ex-wife Brooke Mueller thinks so. In Radar Online’s exclusive report, she’s asked a judge to order Sheen to go through a psychological examination before he can again see his two twin boys.

BY CHRISTINE SLUSSER ANCHOR Megan Murphy You're watching multisource world news analysis from Newsy With fears of a catastrophic melt-down still resonating and the discovery of plutonium now hitting headlines -- media outlets wonder -- is the Japanese government doing all it can to battle its nuclear crisis? “Highly radioactive water has been found for the first time outside one of the reactor buildings at the damaged Fukushima nuclear power plant, adding to the mounting problems, officials have also detected plutonium in the soil at the plant.” (Video: Times Now) The Japanese government itself -- continues to insist -- there’s nothing to fear. “Officials insist the plutonium does not pose a health threat. In fact, some of it is decades-old residue from nuclear weapons testing. The latest setbacks are fueling a collapse of confidence in the government’s handling of the nuclear crisis.” (Video: CBS) The New York Post says Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant managers are downplaying the discovery of plutonium. “Plutonium breaks down very slowly and can remain dangerously radioactive for hundreds of thousands of years. The plutonium discovery, from samples taken a week ago, was the latest in a string of sky-is-falling updates that has put Japan and much of the world on edge.” A Japanese government spokesman calls the situation a “delicate balancing act” - as workers try to cool overheating reactors, but at the same time contaminate the water. In an article in The Guardian, a nuclear safety expert says, the Japanese government is sending out mixed signals. "What is fundamentally disturbing the public is reports of drinking water one day being above some limit, and then a day or two later it's suddenly safe to drink. People don't know if the first instance was alarmist or whether the second one was untrue...” Japan’s Prime Minister has put the country on “maximum alert”. MSNBC reports hopes are fading. “It’s hard because a workable solution to get control of the reactors has yet to be reached. The government spokesman simply called it a delicate balancing act, but offered little in the way of any new plan to attack the problem.” ...but the Financial Post argues the simple fear of radiation can be more damaging than the radiation itself--and reports harm in small doses is just a theory, while harm from fear is proven. “The incalculable harm that came of the panic that accompanied Chernobyl cannot be undone. Some 336,000 people in the vicinity of Chernobyl were evacuated from their homes and workplaces, most of them becoming impoverished as a result ... with an epidemic of afflictions among the evacuees that included depression, anxiety, alcohol and drug abuse, terminations of wanted pregnancies, and suicides.” Japan’s Prime Minister says the situation is still quote “unpredictable”.

BY ALLIE SPILLYARDS AND TRACY PFEIFFER ANCHOR CHRISTINA HARTMAN You're watching multisource world news analysis from Newsy After days of pumping water into the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant to cool damaged reactors, Japanese emergency workers have another problem: what do they do with all that water? With more than 11,000 tons of radioactive water needing somewhere to go and more runoff on the way, Tokyo Electric has turned to the Pacific. LEE COWAN: “Engineers have now had to prioritize. So what they’re going to do is they’re going to pump several tanks worth of lesser radioactive water directly into the ocean that is to make room for the really radioactive water.” (NBC) On-site storage tanks have already filled up, and a writer for TIME explains -- the decision to release water into the ocean is part of an ongoing struggle restore the plant’s electric-powered cooling systems. “The problem is maddeningly circular: workers can’t safely fix the power connection while there is so much irradiated water around, but workers can’t stop dousing the plant with water while the electricity is down. Dealing with the water will require its own processes.” Meanwhile, highly radioactive water has been gushing into the ocean through a large crack in a pit at the Fukushima nuclear plant. Polymore, cement, sawdust and shredded newspaper have all been used to try and stop the leak. The Wall Street Journal’s Mariko Sanchanta talks about the frustration. “It does sound pretty haphazard. When we heard that they were throwing in shredded newspaper yesterday, three bags full. But we don’t have any idea the volumes they’re using, the quantities ... but as far as we know the crack has not been sealed yet.” Water leaking from the pit has been measured at as much as 1,000 millisieverts - meaning just 15 minutes of exposure would tap out workers’ yearly radiation allowance of 250 millisieverts. But as a writer for the BBC reports, THAT water will not be purposefully dumped. “Tepco says the low-radioactive water it intends to deliberately release into the sea has iodine-131 levels that are about 100 times the legal limit. But it stressed in a news conference on Monday that if people ate fish and seaweed caught near the plant every day for a year, their radiation exposure would still be just 0.6 millisieverts. Normal background radiation levels are on the order of 2 millisieverts per year.” And while there has been some concern over radiation reaching shores across the Pacific, ABC’s Neal Karlinksy puts this latest update into perspective. “Experts on both sides of the Pacific agree that is not a threat at any distance other than the immediate area and also in the air. Even here in Tokyo, the levels are minuscule and certainly much smaller than that in the United States.” 'Like' Newsy on Facebook for updates in your news feed Get more multisource video news analysis from Newsy Transcript by Newsy
