This question was brought up at the session of Russia’s Security Council in Naryan-Mar.“I think, this issue should be settled in 2012. Obviously, picking up those subs needs significant financing. But we must be sure that the sea nuclear pollution problem won’t emerge at that region. Presently, radiation background at those sites is normal“, noted the interviewee.As for him, each of those submarines has two reactors with nuclear fuel.“Taking into account lifting experience of SSN Kursk, we are quite capable to perform such operations. Especially as the subs are at relatively shallow depths”, added Kamenskih.“On the other hand, if it is decided to dispose the subs completely, one should determine how to do that”, pointed out the interviewee.“Speaking of SSN Komsomolets sunken in the Norwegian Sea in 1989, the sub will obviously stay there for ever, since she lies at the depth of 1,685 meters”, said deputy director of Rosatom.On Monday Ivan Kamenskih delivered the report “Ecological problems of nuclear power plant utilization in Arctic” at the international Arctic forum arranged by Russian Security Council on board icebreaker Yamal during Arctic cruise from Varandei to Tlksi along the Northern Sea Route.[mappress]Source: rusnavy, August 11, 2011; View post tag: Lift Equipment & technologycenter_img View post tag: Navy View post tag: Naval August 11, 2011 View post tag: Arctic View post tag: Russia View post tag: Subs Share this articlelast_img read more

first_imgMick Jagger appears to be healthy and back on his feet! On Wednesday, The Rolling Stones frontman shared a video via his social media accounts of him smoothly and quickly showing off his dance moves to The Wombats‘ “Techno Fan”. Last month, The Rolling Stones were forced to postpone their highly-awaited No Filter U.S. tour, which initially included a stop at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. The band was pushed to postpone the tour indefinitely due to Jagger’s health issue, which was later reported as surgery to place a stent in his heart. The heart valve procedure should allow Jagger to avoid major heart surgery down the road.Although reports surfaced that The Rolling Stones’ postponed shows would be scheduled sooner rather than later, the band has yet to announce the rescheduled tour dates. We’ll be sure to update you as more information about The Rolling Stones’ rescheduled tour dates becomes available!last_img read more

Harvard University began welcoming new students and their families Thursday (Aug. 26), with the first move-in day signifying the beginning of the fall semester and a new academic year.The newcomers were helped in acclimating to their environment by peer advisers — upperclassmen who volunteer to provide academic and social mentoring.  This group can easily be spotted around Harvard Yard wearing bright orange T-shirts that read “Finding Freshman.”Anika Petach ’13 is a peer adviser for Matthews Hall. She describes her role as “being there as a steppingstone for freshmen, with any questions they have so that they can get the resources that they need. It’s a friendly way for them to get information.”  Peer advisers also offer a student perspective about classes and other aspects of life on campus.The Gu family was greeted by Harvard College Dean Evelynn Hammonds after they finished moving their daughter Catherine into Thayer Hall from New Jersey. Yancui Gu was impressed with how organized the move-in was and how helpful people were in assisting. “The room is nice, and there is a big common room,” said Catherine. Her biggest concern was the bathroom, because, as she said, “I really don’t know how this is going to work with a hall full of girls and only two showers.”Terrance Moore and his father Melvin traveled from Atlanta to move in Terrance. Terrance said of the traffic-clogged streets that, “we were not ready for that” but his dad said, “We are from Atlanta, I promise you this traffic is nothing. We had no problems and I have no complaints. Everything was done just right.” They said this is an exciting time for each of them. Terrance is looking forward to “meeting all the extraordinary people at Harvard” and the football season.”  Melvin said of his son, “I hope that he makes us all proud with whatever he does. I’m proud of him getting here.”Jimmy McCune and his mother Sharon had an easy commute, coming from nearby Somerville. The most challenging part of the move for them was the 20-minute time limit to get everything from the car upstairs to Jimmy’s room. Jimmy said he approached move-in day with an “expect the unexpected” attitude, and it had gone better than expected.

first_imgBALTIMORE (AP) — President Joe Biden plans to sign an executive order that aims to boost government purchases from U.S. manufacturers. The goal of the order would be to use the $600 billion the federal government spends on procurement to boost domestic factories. Administration officials say the order being signed Monday would require more components of the goods bought by the government to be domestically produced and make the waiver process more stringent. To help enforce these goals, the order establishes a job at the White House Office of Management and Budget to monitor the initiative and focus on ensuring the government buys more domestically made goods.last_img read more

first_imgBy Dialogo November 09, 2011 The United States and Bolivia took a first step toward improving relations upon signing a bi-national framework agreement based on “mutual respect” and expressed their desire to see a quick return of their ambassadors to the respective capitals. The agreement “establishes a framework by which the two governments will pursue relations on the basis of mutual respect and shared responsibility,” a joint statement by both Governments indicated. “We look forward to the early return of ambassadors to both Washington and La Paz and to a more productive, collaborative relationship for the benefit of both our peoples,” the statement asserted. The agreement, following almost three years during which the two countries have remained without ambassadors, was signed in Washington, D.C., by U.S. Under Secretary for Global Affairs María Otero and Bolivian Vice Foreign Minister Juan Carlos Alurralde. La Paz and Washington, D.C., have been negotiating this agreement since 2009, after President Evo Morales expelled the U.S. ambassador and the representatives of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) in late 2008, accusing them of supporting a supposed plot against him. In retaliation, Washington, D.C., in turn expelled the Bolivian ambassador. Relations between the two countries have remained in a constant state of upheaval since Morales, who has maintained a discourse critical of the U.S. Government, came to power in January 2006. Nevertheless, Morales recently expressed his desire to improve relations. The agreement establishes a bi-national commission and “working-level mechanisms to ensure the effective implementation” of the accord, the statement indicated. The two countries stressed that the strengthening of the bilateral relationship will take place “with respect for sovereign states and their territorial integrity.” The issues on which La Paz and Washington, D.C., want to develop closer ties are sustainable human, economic, social, and cultural development; the fight against drug trafficking; and the development of trade between the two countries. The United States has maintained sporadic anti-drug collaboration with the Bolivian authorities, despite the DEA’s departure from the country, according to official sources.last_img read more
