Why Car Is Not Really Safe

Why you’re super safe car actually makes you less safe. Cars they’re great for long-distance travel but they’re an objectively terrible way to get around the city. Ok well do you love traffic because the average driver spend one workweek year stuck in traffic. If we can fix that lot less traffic is to build more roads that would be great if it works but it’s the roads that cause the traffic. It’s a concept called induced demand here check out. Historically every time we build more roads traffic has gone up by an identical amount we can’t build our way out of the traffic problem cars equal traffic. Cars are inherently unsafe no only bad drivers have car accidents.

I’m fine because I’m a good driver. yeah you and everyone else. Ninety percent of drivers say they’re better than average that’s impossible. People who think that they’re good drivers who are actually the worst drivers.
Most accidents are caused by an inattention and you pay the least amount of attention to the road when you’re confident which is also where most accidents are caused on clear signing roads into sober drivers.

Well this car is super safe it’s like I’m driving a spaceship by the super smart computer. The car itself is still controlled by a human unreliable and easily distracted system. Actually you missed the sign this area is a host crossing and maybe you missed it because your car is too safe. Studies have shown that modern cars and roads that make us feel secure causes to unconsciously compensate and drive more dangerously. It’s a big part of why tens of thousands of Americans died on the road every year.

Okay but when I’m in this baby I’m free, it’s just me and the open road and then you’re free all right as long as you keep paying for insurance, fuel, registration and repairs. So hope you have a job while you’re on the open road. The average car cost nine thousand dollars a year just to own, now that you can afford that but a lot of people can’t. The average American family spent twenty percent of their income on transportation that’s more than we spend on food and for the poorest Americans it’s thirty-two percent. Car ownership is a tremendous burden on the working poor.

 

 

Tim Peters executive director of door of Hope would you tell me a little bit about what you guys do. Yeah hey guys we help homeless families go from homelessness to self efficiency, to permanent housing and everything in between but you might telling us  what your experience with you know automobiles in them. Yeah transportation is a big issue with our families. Car ownership can actually set in backwards. So how does the car make you go backwards. We had one client that was pain over eighty percent of her income on a car. She thought it was more important to have a car than even a home because if she ended up homeless and she had a car to sleep in and that had been our experience before coming to door hope. Families needed car just to get to work or to be able to get around the city but sometimes to make a car payment they’ll sacrifice their rent payment or food or even the basic essentials for the children.

 

 

Transportation is a fundamental human need the fact that we built our entire country so that everyone in it has to buy and maintain one of these things just to move around their own community it’s a genuine tragedy. Their monstrously expensive you have to deal with a psychologically manipulative charlatan just to buy one and we are so bad at driving them that there’s an entirely different predatory industry based around the fact that we constantly crash these things and die.

You’re talking about the insurance industry right? Yes what really kills me about all of this is the only reason we’re stuck with this cluster fudge is because we were tricked into building roads instead of subways a hundred years ago. The dominance of the car is a massive cultural mistake.

People With Their Extremely Lazy Acts

Laziness used to be something negative. But today in the 21st century, finding ways to be lazy is like obtaining a badge of honor. Here are some extreme acts of laziness.

Pumping Gas
Typically, you’re supposed to get out of the car to pump your gas. But the guy here used his body in the backseat to pump the gas for him, all the while staying in the car. Because who wants to get out and actually walked around the car? Not them.

 

 

 

 

Prism Specs
Even though book reading is supposed to be a leisurely activity, it can still be hard work. For those of us who enjoy reading in bed, but don’t enjoy having to sit up, hold the book up, or even bother to find a comfortable position, there are prism specs. These glasses make it possible to read your book while laying completely flat. They might look funny but they’re a god send to the lazy bookworm.

 

 

 

 

 

Box and Chair
Buying a chair can be pretty exciting but opening it can be daunting. You have to deal with the cardboard box, packing material, and oh god, assembly. So the guy in this photo is clearly committing an extreme active laziness and is using the chair for its intended purpose, but not the way one would expect. Will he ever opened the box we may never know?

 

 

 

 

 

Sliding Down
Bunk beds remind us of simpler times as a kid, but if you want the top bunk, you have some work ahead of you. Not only do you typically have to climb up into the bunk bed but you need to climb down as well. There’s always the risk of jumping down, but that could result in injury. So installing a slide to the bunk bed seems like a logical option and perfect for the lazy sleeper.

Where’s The Trash Can?
Movie theaters are place to enjoy the latest in Hollywood while enjoying some junk food and not having to worry about taking the trash out. However, the people who left their garbage right in front of the trash can have reached an epic level of laziness that only a few of us could imagine achieving, along with not giving a darn.

Sticker Me This
When we buy our fruit, we sometimes run into the sticker which is apparently edible. But alas, we will remove the sticker anyway and then proceeded to enjoy a sweet treat from nature. Well, the person who ate this apple was apparently too lazy to even remove the sticker and went through the incredible task to eat around the sticker.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Swing Away
There’s no doubt that parenting is hard work, and it can be hard to find some downtime to recover from raising a tiny human. The lazy parents around the world are finding away to entertain their kids while still having a moment to themselves. All it takes is some rope and an arm willing to pull the swing. That way junior is having a blast on the swing and you can have a nice cold drink.

 

 

 

 

Mowing the Lawn
Speaking of rope, it is a wonderful solution to the grueling task of mowing the lawn. Sometimes riding lawn mowers aren’t enough for the lazy person because they still must be outside and drive the mower. But on youtube, a user was able to share a brilliant idea using just some rope and a post. Using the tension of the rope, the mower will go I na circle and the Rope will wrap around the post ensuring that all patches of grass are covered.

 

 

Sideways Laptop
Such a tough decision, lay down or be entertained on your laptop. The guy here clearly found a way to do both. It’s so simple, but yet seems so ridiculous but maybe he doesn’t have a couch?

 

Christmas Decorations
Decorating your home’s exterior with Christmas lights it’s a pretty daunting task and neighborhoods can get competitive for the best decorated home. However, the person living in this house is not only a genius but created one of the most epic decoration themes in history. All they needed was a string of lights with a cardboard cutout of the bridge looking like he’s stealing their lights. Job well done.

How Cars Killed Our City

We needed cars to get around, actually we already had a fast efficient way to get around the city the streetcar. At the time almost every major city had them but the automobile killed them. A single streetcar can carry dozens of pedestrians but according to the passengers in their own car and they take up a hundred square feet each and that means one thing. Traffic once the roads are gridlocked the old reliable streetcar became too slow to be effective and that was the death of public transportation in America.

 

Well once cars were the only way to get from place to place. We rebuilt our entire Cities around them. and that’s when things really took a turn for the worse. We started bulldozing entire neighborhoods to build urban highways and in some cities parking lots now take up a quarter of all the available lands. All the space use just restore cars while they’re asleep.

 

Parking lot or desert in the city, Professor Donald Shoup our foremost expert on the economics of parking. Parking lots will not employ any people they simply provide space for cars. We have expensive housing for people and free parking for cars. We have our priorities the wrong way around and the worst part is many cities were far far too much parking and this blight their downtown’s or killing our old cities. It’s a huge bummer.

 

 

We design society so that it’s more comfortable for cars we make it less habitable for humans. In a city designer on public transportation speak to be full of homes and businesses and you could walk from place to place but in most of our cities and suburbs everything is so spread apart that nothing is within walking distance. Giving you no choice but to drive and it didn’t have to be this way. We could have built walkable cities based on public transportation like Western Europe and Japan did but we miss that chance and now you have to have a car to get around.

Things That We Keep on Doing Wrong In Our Whole Life

In the future, school kids will read in their history books how he wants did things and will say, why didn’t they do with the easy way? And make us look primal. Here are the most common things you’ve been doing wrong your whole life.

 

Making a Sandwich
When you made your sandwich, you probably just slapped your lunchmeat onto the bread, accepting the bare corners of the bread. If you do this simple task of cutting your lunchmeat in half, and then lining the straight edge of the meat with your bread, and then repeating the other way, you’ll have a sandwich completely covered in meat with no bread only corners.

 

 

 

Toilet Seat Covers
When you have the unfortunate opportunity to use a public rest room, you’ve probably put the flap on the toilet seat cover on the back of the toilet. However you’re probably familiar with the uncomfortable experience of getting the flap stuck to your butt. You’re supposed to put the flap in the front so you won’t have to deal with as much sticking and the cover will flush down more efficiently.

Stretching
When we stretch our bodies, we were taught in school of all places to stretch before you get going with your workout. On the contrary if you stretch while your muscles are cold, you increase your chances of getting injured. So when is the best time for a stretch? After warming up and after your workout. Your body will be warm and it will increase your flexibility thanks to the more easy going muscles that are warm and stretchy.

 

 

 

 

Peeling Bananas
We’ve been conditioned to open a banana from the stem. It’s not the most fail-proof way of doing it because the stem could break and we’d be stuck unable to properly open a banana without smashing or denting are delicious fruit inside. But a revolution is starting in the world of banana consumption, and there is a movement to open a banana like a monkey. Instead of opening from the stem, open the banana from the bottom and just pinching, the peel will split and you can open your banana nice and drama-free.

 

 

 

Staying Fresh
If you’ve been using plastic to keep your pastries and cakes fresh, then you shouldn’t be surprised when dry patches approach. But by placing a slice of bread on your pastry or cake, you can keep your baked good fresher longer by sacrificing another baked good, to the baked good god’s.

 

 

Untying Knots
Tying a knot with plastic is a near death sentence because the knot usually gets so tight that it can’t be undone. This goes for untying nearly any kind of knot. Instead of pulling from under the knot, twist to loose end as much as you can and then push it through the knot. It actually works.

 

 

 

Plunging
The task of plunging our toilets and sinks isn’t the most glamorous shore in the house. But if you’ve been using your plunger with a lot of failure, there’s a chance you might be using wrong plunger for your hole. You might have noticed that there are two main types of plungers. The flange and the cup. The flange plunger is for your toilet while the cup plunger is for your sink. If you’d rather stick with one plunger and use it on both things, make sure you wash your plunger in between to prevent cross-contamination.

 

 

Peeling Oranges
Peeling an orange can either be easy or very difficult. We typically Peel an orange manually with our fingers, peeling off each little piece. Nut there is a much easier way. All you need is a knife. Roll your orange on a cutting board to the peel will come up easier. Then cut the top and the bottom of the orange and make one vertical slit on the side. Open the slit, and you can roll your orange right out.

Crossing Out Letters
When you’ve crossed out letters, you probably use simple straight lines that you’ve scribbled on top of your writing. But if you don’t want people to be able to read what you wrote, this method is counter productive as your words will still be legible. If you want to cross out your words and have them be gone for good, cross out your writing with random letters. Will be nearly impossible to decipher your crossed out writing.

Heating Leftovers
Hating leftover seems to be game of trial and error plus a lot of stopping and mixing so the heat is eventually evenly distributed. If you’re using a microwave to heat your leftover dinner, take a hole in the middle of your meal. This will help in making sure that heat is evenly distributed in your food, and you won’t have to deal with surprise cold spots again.

Why We Hate Car Dealership

trommel fines

People are like vultures I hate care dealership and you hate them even more after you know the truth about them. If you have car you have freedom however, how come you have freedom when you have no choice where you buy them.

Why is it that if you want a new car you have to go to one of these awful dealerships. So why do we buy cars this way? Like why is it dealership only sell one brand of car? What if every business worked like that?  Why can’t you just go to a car store and buy whatever brand of car you want for a fixed price. And why can’t you buy a car online?

 

 

 

 

Why isn’t that how we buy cars? because that would be crazy mean can you imagine such a world of boy. Man this guy he sure is funny. It would be great when I can’t do that because these guys got a law passed to stop you. Dealerships aren’t owned by the carmaker’s their separate businesses and since the thirties dealership associations have pressured every state in the passing franchise laws that give them a virtual monopoly over new car sales.

 

 

These laws actually make it illegal to sell new cars unless your car dealership and you want to become a dealer too bad it’s also illegal to open a new dealership in another dealer territory. The law also makes it nearly impossible for carmakers to shutdown dealerships even when they suck which means they end up getting passed from father to son like family dynasties. Since they have no competition and no oversight car dealers are free to force you to haggle and treat you like crap.

So it’s a lame live let’s change it, that’ll be tough twenty percent of state sales tax revenue comes from car dealerships which means create more buddies pretty much run the show. All these middlemen do is cost you money. It’s estimated that if car manufacturers could sell to consumers directly every car would be eighteen hundred dollars cheaper but because of dealer franchise laws you can’t avoid them. If you want a new car you have no choice but the only way to get around I need a car yeah so does everyone. Is not kind of weird that a product marketed as the epitome of freedom is totally mandatory.

Weird Things Happen When You Sleep

After a long day all you want to do is have a good night’s rest but sometimes a body said to have other plans in mind and things get a little bizarre. Today we look at the weirdest things that can happen to us during our sleep.

Gritting your teeth, the phenomenons bruxism the excessive teeth grinding and jaw clenching. This a common problem found super villain among the general population several symptoms are calling associated bruxism including hyper sensitive teeth, aching jaw muscles, headaches, tooth wearing and the along with damaged teeth. The symptoms may sometimes be so small that the person will never come aware of their condition.

Eye twitching during deep sleep our eyes continue to move with our eyelids still close shot this phenomenon is believed to occur due to intense nerve stimulation. This brain activity during sleep allows us to organize the memories send necessary things deep storage and even erase all necessary information and optimize memory work overall.

Sleep-talking a very common condition found to occur random times in the night can sometimes hear the pants off your family members. sleep-talking also known as parasomnia is a condition where people talk aloud was still asleep. It can be quite loud ranging from simple mumbling sound loud shouts and on frequent incoherent speeches and can occur many times during the sleep cycle this happens because a speech center in your brain gets activated when normally is still blocked during sleep so if you talk a lot of mumbo jumbo during sleep don’t worry what you want to remember single word when you awaken.

Sudden jerks or even jumps, feeling as we’ve been shot by a defibrillator the body jolts. Right before you  to fall into deep sleep this so is a very common occurrence they shouldn’t be concerned about. If you think hard enough your country realization that’s probably happened to a couple of times but this sensation is known as hypnic jerks which involuntary twitch which it occurs just the person is beginning:to fall asleep. Often caused them to waken unexpectedly. This jerking the body that soon should rapid, heartbeat quickened, breathing sweat in a pleasant feeling like you’re going to have a heart attack. Don’t worry this is the only issue of people who have a regular sleep schedules.

Sleep walking speed walking is known as somnambulism or knocked ilysm which is a disorder that occurs in the body awakens in the state of low consciousness. In this state the body functions are though it’s fully awake. You can even perform activities with ease this includes getting out of bed cooking and even driving. The reason is that during sleep we lose all our senses which include time and space this is because only a small reason the brain responsible for limb movement stays functional.

 

If more activities takes too long shot down a minimal stimulants such as sunlight or a phone ring contribute this condition and make the speed walk and move around without waking up. There are also homicide cases where the person accuse of murder has you sleepwalking those are legal defense.

 

Homicidal sleep walking is rare but only about  68 cases reported. Individuals from sleepwalk can’t recall memories which came back into the minds altered state of consciousness, sleep walking lasted as 30  seconds for as long as 30  minutes.

Sexual arousal this shouldn’t come to surprise to anyone of you. As you’ve probably experienced it quite often. Men tend to have erections throughout the night most notably when they wake up with their morning wood. This is a natural body responds in males due to the saturation of blood and oxygen pulling into the penis. Things get a little awkward if your parents walk in when you’re just getting out of bed. On the other hand woman also horny at night dreaming of ripped male supermodels would lead to release of hormones which is sexually arouse the body

Hidden Lies In Product Labels

Every time you go shopping, someone is trying to separate you from your money. That’s right, whether online or at the grocery store, companies will do anything to get you to buy their product even if it means lying. Whether adding false claims, incorrect nutritional information, or appealing to your patriotic side to buy domestic, it’s a no-holds-barred when it comes to accompany trying to sell you something. So put down that healthy pop drop, that fat-free creamer, because this is an article that reveals you a lot of companies don’t want you to see.

Antioxidants
Oxidation is a natural reaction of the body which can lead to damage cells. In order to counteract this scientists tell us to eat antioxidant-rich foods like fruits and vegetables. Companies everywhere jumped on this right away resulting in many products that promise powerful antioxidants even if they really aren’t any present. The best example of this is when cherry up claimed it had antioxidants. Sure cherries are loaded with them but considering the cherry flavoring in the sugary drink is largely artificial. It’s a giant advertising gimmick.

Trans-Fats
Too much fat is bad for you but trans fats are especially bad. Over the last several years, there has been a big push to get rid of this artery-clogging ingredients from everything. Looking to cash in on the hype, product makers are sure to advertise their goods as trans fat free. But don’t buy it. A loophole in government regulation means that a survey of something has 0.5 grams or less of trans-fat, it can be advertised as being trans fat-free. Worse yet, it can actually say right on the nutritional label that it is 0 grams. Thanks to the wonderful ability of rounding down the number.
trommel fines
Cholesterol-free
Like the fight against trans fats, many consumers are conscious of their cholesterol. Companies are aware of this and love to slap a cholesterol-free label on anything and everything. Just remember, cholesterol only comes from animal based products like meat, milk and eggs. Vegetable and fruit based products naturally contain no cholesterol. There’s a catch here, however. After all, while that giant bag of chips maybe cholesterol-free, that doesn’t mean it’s good for you because it still has lots of facts and salt.

Made With Real Sugar
You’ve probably been there, you know, staring at a product that advertise that it’s made with real or natural sugar. Such labels are added to bringing customers who want to cut the high-fructose corn syrup out of their diet. Such labels are meant to make you think the product is healthier for you. But think again, doctors anywhere will tell you that ultimately sugar is sugar and too much of the stuff can lead to all sorts of problems no matter what a package promises.

 

trommel fines

Organic
People see the organic label and they instantly think they are eating is healthier and more nutritious than regular food. That is not always the case. In fact, to be labeled as organic, a product only needs to have seventy percent organic ingredients and thirty percent could be synthetic or bathed and fertilizers and you wouldn’t even know it. Even to get the USDA Organic seal of approval of products can still have five percent of its ingredients that are non-organic. Only one hundred percent organic means one hundred percent organic.

 

trommel fines
Whole Grain
Restaurants and other companies love to advertise their products as being made with whole grain. After all, it makes you feel good that you’re eating such a healthy thing but those claims are misleading. While they claim they use whole-grain just how much they use is left out. Look at the ingredient labels and in most cases, the primary ingredients are bleached or enriched with a tiny dash of whole grain so they can make the claim. The only way to be sure is to look for either the whole grain stamp of approval or check the ingredients for whole wheat or one hundred percent full-grain.

Made In The USA
Politicians fight foreign companies love to advertise they sell products made by Americans for Americans. Such products are often covered by labels of U.S flags or print that says made in the USA. However, in many instances, these labels are deceiving and looking to cash in on your patriotism. Flip the package over and look on the back and you’ll see another label telling you the product was made somewhere else. How can this be? Well even if the product is foreign, if it’s assembled or put into a package in the US before sale, then technically it can be advertised as being American-made.

 

trommel fines

Natural
You have no doubt seen this one plastered all over everything at the store. Companies love to advertise their products is all-natural or made with natural ingredients. Sure some companies are telling the truth but for the most part, this is just a gimmick to make you buy a product thinking it’s something it’s not. What do we mean? Take natural peanut butter as an example, all peanut butter can claim this because peanuts are natural, they can even claim this after adding all sorts of oils and sweeteners because natural is an unregulated term.

 

trommel fines

Less Fat
This one is good right? After all, anything with less fat must be better for you. In this instance, however, it’s a case of fire beware the label maybe truthful and the company did manage to good portion of fat out. However, what they aren’t telling you is that in order to make the product not tastes like stale cardboard, they’ve had to add a bunch of sweeteners or salt to compensate. Ultimately, many less fat products have simply replaced one unhealthy ingredients for another.

 

trommel fines

New and Improved
This label is a classic and it should make you laugh when you see it because of the lie. How so? Ask yourself this. If  something is new, how can it possibly be improved at the same time? After all, a new product is just that it’s a brand spanking new product and nothing like it has ever existed before. On the other hand and improved product complies spin around for a while but has seen some changes to make it better than before. In fact, this is merely a branding gimmick that is proven to grab our attention with two simple, yet powerful words which make us more willing to part with our money.

Nuclear Power Plant – Safety Measures

Canada is home to several nuclear power plants located in Ontario Quebec and New Brunswick this video will help you learn more about the safety systems of these plants. Which are operated and maintained following strict rules established by Canada’s nuclear regulator we are the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission but first to get a better idea of how these safety systems fit in let’s look at how a nuclear power plant works all nuclear power plants in Canada.

 

trommel fines

A safe reliable reactor technology can do reactors produce electricity by splitting atoms of natural uranium to create heat the heat is then used to make steam to power the turbines and generators which produce electricity the uranium for nuclear fuel has been used in the reactor. It is removed and stored securely in a pool for a period of six to ten years the water in the pool continues to cool the fuel and provides shielding against radiation all of Canada’s fuel pools are built-in ground in separate buildings at the nuclear power plant and are designed to withstand earthquakes nuclear power plants have multiple safety systems to ensure three basic functions controlling the reactor cooling the fuel.

 

trommel fines
And containing radiation these systems are maintained and inspected regularly and upgraded when necessary to ensure plants meet or exceed safety standards will briefly explain the main safety systems for each of these three functions first let’s look at rolling the reactor. When the reactor is operating the power level is controlled by adjuster rods and by varying the water level in vertical cylinders sensitive detectors constantly monitored different aspects like temperature pressure and reactor power level.

 

trommel fines
When needed a Canada reactors can safely and automatically shut down within seconds nuclear reactors in Canada have two independent fast-acting and equally effective shutdown systems. The first shutdown system is made up of rods that drop automatically and stop the nuclear reaction if something irregular is detected the second system injects a liquid or poison inside the reactor to immediately stop the nuclear reaction both systems work without power or operator intervention. However they can also be manually activated these systems are regularly and safely tested once a CANDU reactor is shut down. It will stay this way until restarted by the operators in the control room there is absolutely no possibility of the reactor accidentally restarted on its own after it shut down the reactor must be manually restarted.

Following shut down the amount of energy produced by the reactor decreases rapidly the nuclear fuel will however continue to produce some heat and must be cooled that heat called decay heat represents a small fraction of the heat produced during normal operation.

 

Now let’s look at the second sick function cooling the fuel because of decay heat nuclear fuel requires continuous cooling whether or not the reactor is operating fuel cooling involves three main systems the heat transport system the steam system and the condenser cooling system. Let’s take a closer look at each of these the heat transport system brings the heat produced by the reactor to the steam generators this system is made up of very robust pipes filled with heavy water a rare type of water found in nature pipes.
And other components are maintained and inspected regularly and replaced if needed inspections include measuring pipe wear and tear and identifying any microscopic cracks or changes well before they become a problem the second system the steam system uses normal water the heat from the reactor turns this water into steam to run the turbines and generators. That steam is then cooled and condensed using a third system that pumps in cold water from a body of water such as a lake or reservoir this is called the condenser cooling system like other components the steam and condenser cooling systems are regularly inspected a simpler cooling system is used when the reactor is shut down.

For an extended period for example during a planned outage it requires little power to function and is connected directly to the heat transport system in the unlikely event of a loss of heavy water which could for example be caused by a pipe break emergency injection systems. Would ensure water continues to circulate over the fuel to cool it emergency injection systems would work with pressurized tanks of nitrogen or pumps all plants. Have two or three injection systems a collection basin located in the basement of the reactor building would recover the water and pump it back into the reactor until repairs are made electricity is needed for all cooling systems.
To operate normally nuclear power plants in Canada are equipped with multiple sources of backup power if they get disconnected from the grid sources of backup power include on-site power that is the power produced by the plant itself in addition at least two or three standby power generators two or three emergency power generators and emergency batteries are available you can learn more.

What would happen in the very unlikely event of a total station blackout this video is available, now let’s look basic function containing radiation nuclear reactors are built with multiple barriers to safely contain radiation at the heart of all Canada reactors. Hardened ceramic pellets made of natural uranium these pellets contain the radiation they form the first layer of containment the pallets are contained in rods which form the second layer of containment can do fuel rods are made of Zurk alloy a metal alloy extremely resistant to heat. And corrosion the rods are then loaded into pressure tubes which are part of the heat transport system this is the third layer of containment the pressure tubes are contained inside a metal tank called the Calandria which itself is contained inside a thick vault made of reinforced concrete the fourth layer of containment is the building that houses and protects the reactor the walls of the reactor building are made of at least one meter of reinforced concrete the reactor building is surrounded by a one-kilometer exclusion or buffer zone all plants are equipped with high-efficiency filters.

These filters are used as part of the operation to minimize radioactive releases from nuclear power plants these releases occur as part of normal activities like system maintenance filtering systems are regularly inspected and power plant operators must by law report all radioactive releases. Into the environment in the unlikely event of an accident safety systems are in place to protect the containment from internal pressure Judas team releases inside the reactor building in a single unit stationed internal pressure would be lowered by spraying water from a dowsing tank in a multi-unit station pressure.
Would be lowered by releasing steam and hot gases from the reactor building to the vacuum building the vacuum building is a structure specifically designed to quickly and safely lower pressure inside the reactor building. This building also has a dosing system to control pressure the vacuum and dosing systems work without power and are tested periodically under the supervision of inspectors of the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission. Let’s have a clue – look at the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission our job is to establish strict rules for all nuclear activities and to make sure they are implemented to protect people and the environment.

The rules include stringent requirements for the design inspection testing and maintenance of all important safety systems at nuclear power plants nuclear safety is our business. We have a team of professional staff including inspectors permanently stationed at each of Canada’s nuclear power plants these inspectors are our ears and eyes on-site they inspect nuclear facilities throughout their life to confirm that aging equipment is functioning as originally designed. If an operator is not following the rules we take immediate action to correct the situation as part of our work we also make sure information about the operation of these facilities is publicly available for example every year we published a detailed report about the safety performance of Canada’s.

Nuclear power plants we also closely collaborate with our international counterparts and the International Atomic Energy Agency an agency of the United Nations we are committed to continuous improvement and applying the best safety standards to our Canadian facilities close to half of our technical staff have doctorate or master’s degrees. In fields such as engineering chemistry physics and environmental and health sciences members of our staff are available day or night to provide support and clear communications in the unlikely event of a nuclear emergency. Their work and dedication is part of the reason Canada’s nuclear power plants are among the safest in the world.

Back To The Future Features That Came To Passed

Ever wondered what the future would be like? Have you ever think about the future like riding of the hoverboards? In actual fact, hoverboards have been invented. There’s actual video from a year ago of Tony Hawk riding a hoverboard produced by the company. However the downside is that it only operates on a unique copper-plated floor. And never, say, on water. Not unless you have power! However, if you’ve seen the 1989 movie Back to the Future Part II and certainly you have, do you know what the real future looks like. “We’re descending toward Hill Valley, California at 4:29pm on Wednesday, October 21st, 2015.” “2015? You mean we’re in the future!?” Amazing. We live in the future. Yep. Which explains why today we are going to go through the major things Back to the Future Part II got right.

Drone Reporters , try to remember when you was previously a reporter? Yes, I was substituted with a drone. Well in 2015, lots of people are utilizing flying drones like this to take images and video footage. Although it’s formally against FAA rules for media companies do it, it’s being performed anyhow. Well probably the most correct part here is that human reporters are now being substituted with machines.

TV screens everywhere you go. Considering that this is what a whole new Magnavox TV looked like in 1985, it’s remarkable that Back to the Future was so on the spot with Giant flat-panel TVs. A huge selection of channels. Even a wide-screen aspect ratio.

80s Appreciation for the past. So Marty McFly enters into the Cafe 80s. And in 2015, the 80s have returned. Everyone loves the 80s. Well, the 80s did create some of the greatest hosts on the internet. Yeah, anyway, once more we have jeans jackets. Puffy vests. Goofy sweaters.

Dining places without servers. Have you observe that there are no waiters in the Cafe 80s? Yea, McFly orders a Pepsi from a TV screen. And so we actually have that in a number of dining places. Like Chili’s-they have those table-top tablets. It might be more enjoyable to make President Reagan  give you a drink  though. Yes, but then you need to interact with other humans. Which kind of defeats the entire intent.

Hands-free video games. You are aware that part where the kids say: “You mean you have to use your hands?” “That’s like a baby’s toy!” Well, now we actually have things such as the Xbox Kinect and the Wii. Yeah, only babies use their hands for stuff.

Machines you talk to. Hydrate level four, please. “Hey Siri, do you like to speak with me?” “I’d rather not say, Matt.”

Wearable technology Amazing, that appears remarkably like Oculus Rift. However, you understand what makes this really accurate? Individuals paying more focus on their technology than or their loved ones around the table.

Wait a minute. Cubs win World Series-against Miami?” Surprisingly, it’s feasible for the Cubs to win the World Series this year. The very first time in a century. However the movie got the dates wrong. To be able of this recording, we still have no idea whether the Cubs will win. However, you know what they did get right? There is a team from Miami. Yeah, Florida didn’t also have a baseball team until 2 yrs after this movie was created. And they weren’t known as the “Miami” Marlins until 2011.

Surf Vietnam You may have missed it the very first time, but Doc and McFly are in fact standing in front of an advertisement that says “Surf Vietnam.” In 1989, Vietnam wasn’t specifically a place where you would go on vacation. However, well…Surf City.

Hey, what’s Doc Brown browsing? Why, it sure appears like an iPhone to me. Boom. Considering this movie was created almost 30 years ago, they actually have a lot of things right. However, you know, they did not get every little thing right.
