Nuclear fusion reactions mark a 'milestone'
Physicists create nuclear fusion reactions that produce more energy than was in the fuel involved — the power at work in the sun and other stars. It may be a step toward cleaner nuclear energy.
Nuclear fusion reactions mark a 'milestone' - latimes.com: After two runs of the experiment, the scientists measured the energy output by tracking the energy level of the spare neutrons flying out from the tiny sphere. The first one released 14,400 joules of energy, slightly more than the 12,000 joules contained in the deuterium-tritium fuel to start with. The second run was better: 17,300 joules out for just 9,400 joules in.
Neither of these equations account for the 1.8 million or so joules of energy that streamed in from the lasers; when they're taken into account, 99% of the reaction's total energy was lost.
But it's a start — one that points scientists down a path toward ignition and perhaps making nuclear fusion a practical reality, scientists said.
"I think it's a promising advance," said Mark Herrmann, a plasma physicist at Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque who was not involved in the study. "I was excited."
Nuclear fusion would be a cleaner source of energy than the current generation of nuclear power plants because it produces relatively short-lived radioactive byproducts. It could also help scientists understand how to protect and maintain the military's nuclear weapons arsenal without performing full-scale nuclear tests, which the United States stopped doing in 1992.
Of the wrong kind/end of the spectrum!!!
"VIRGIN MARY WITH SAND IN THE VAGINA!"
(Just a bitchy queen who's technically still a virgin cause he's never had vaginal sex!)
JUST TOO FUNNY, REALLY!
IF ONLY I WERE AN ORDAINED MINISTER!
THE BIBLE'S FULL OF IT!
And who is this Mark (Her)rmann fuck, anyway?
Maybe someone should check this person out!?

How many women... does... it take to change a light bulb?"
two to talk about the screwing."
But Dominique was a liberal like myself; if she couldn't do it, can not imagine anyone else being able. I'm wanting to believe, working with me turned out to be a good experience for Dominique. I can be quite a drama queen when I want to be. There was a reason I had no problem with Dominique given the title "Hospital Director" in spite of my seniority over her at that hospital, when Dr. Chapman decided to try something different. The use of Charlie Brown's "fake pussy is(?)still my game" just didn't sound right here. But came close borrowing it. It definitely evened the playing field with the two of us getting into shouting matches at time. But the two of us were good at quickly getting over it and moving on. We pretty much had too. At least that's what I was thinking at the time...?
A man yelling at another woman has a chance being accused of sexual harrassment. Another woman would have just been seen as more of a threat/competition. Me being openly gay and Dominique a former 'pot smoking flower child/her husband too" allowed us two liberals(?)progressives getting a little more comfortable/intimate in the workplace environment than I've ever felt working with anyone else before.
And working with Sandy! And added addition to that one brief period of my life as a veterinarian I could almost point to and say I was fairly content; at least on the job front. She was also cool working with! Loved her story about a father, sheriff of a small conservative town, marrying a European liberal who cared not whether her new neighbors saw her diving nude into her own swimming pool. Not the European way. And her husband was the sheriff! He could not seem to tame his wife/her mother, either, to a new way. Sandy turned out also to be a talented artists.
Eventually, a client of Pets Are People, Too set up Sandy on a blind date with a nephew of hers; a wealthy Oncologist, who works only 6 months out of the year according to Sandy. Didn't take long before the two married and Sandy just working part time then not working at all; at least at Pets Are People Too. The last time I remember me and Sandy together at work...she's showing me pictures she had taken on a trip of theirs to Antarctica. They had already been everywhere else. Then some time later, I hear through the grapevine, she became pregnant with a daughter. That's when everything begins falling apart for her and her marriage. She was working again as a relief veterinarian I eventually heard. We exchanged a couple of emails. Even had two daughters now. And something about an excessively close relationship between her husband and his overly intrusive mother to the point of him being mentally disturbed, a psychopath.
The problem I'm having with my mother is this "Learned Helplessness" of hers that's driving blindly, even brain dead, on autopilot as she continues living comfortably off a TRUST FUND left behind by a HUSBAND/FATHER all of us worked into an early grave! She's wanting or has been lead to believe, and I can't help but feel I have a right blaming George Robert Gary, Sr. ThD as well as MDIV, she has the responsibility/obligation to step in as the family matriarch now.
Now that's okay with me as far as my older sister and brother are concerned; but not with me.
I have never given her any authority speaking on my behalf except, enlisting the help of our family's accountant, Carl Dalrymple, getting my taxes straighten out and and caught up. The fact that I signed the power of attorney enabling my mother to do this while I was involuntarily committed to Georgia Regional Hospital has nothing to do with this. I had to sign it before she could do this; meant I was sane enough. But this was only to get my mother off my back about the interest and penalties. Turned out I overpaid with my estimated payments, anyway... and got a refund.
All along I knew I would eventually get a bill from both federal and state government, plus interest and penalties. Never worried once about being charged with tax evasion; just didn't care anymore. Had decided the headache wasn't worth the time it would have taken to straighten out three-five years of a logistical nightmare brought on by a rational as well as a reasonable depression complicated by the drug addiction, not caused by the drug addiction; stressing myself out even more just trying to minimize the taxes I owed.
And most definitely not worth hiring an accountant just to eat up the savings. I had reached a point where I finally said to myself, "Let the goverment have it! My father certainly never paid his fair share of taxes! Since half of what he earned was considered my mothers, she didn't pay her fair share of taxes. Since my home was paid for in cash with the $20,000.00 I received yearly, non-taxable, under the gift law while my father was still alive, I didn't pay my fair share of taxes either. Let the government take more taxes than usual out of those three-five years and not get upset about it."
When was the last time you seen a conservative think like that!
Now I have a lien against my home by the State of Georgia. They believe they have a right billing me for my involuntary incarceations; with the help of my Arkansan mother and sister. A bill I refuse to pay because they did absolutley nothing I saw coming anywhere closed to legit practicing of medicine.
That was "HERD HEALTH MEDICINE!"
Nothing more, nothing less.
This JAMES E. AVERY, DVM knows...
for a fact!
Just an illusion set up into misleading
CONSERVATIVES AND LIBERAL ELITE OF AMERICA
believing their own lies:
"WE DON'T NEED UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE!? THEY GET IT FOR FREE ALREADY...ANYWAY!"
LIke I then asked of Dr. Johnson,
THE NEO-CONSERVATIVE LIBERTARIAN
Beaver Crossing Animal Hospital,
"Why have insurance then? That's... STILL... Socialized Medicine."
Wish you could have been there and seen him flinch...
followed by stammering.
The lack of response,
most likely to be correct.
looking/sounding a whole lot like "parturition."
I JUST DO NOT GET IT! DON'T GET IT AT ALL!
