Possibly wrong subject - Software Development [Moved]

I know this is not a nuclear/energy type issue, but I have a question and I hope someone here might be able to help. The company I work for is in the process of revamping some of our core software and we have been having some long arguments as to whether we should use the classic, tried-and-proven m...

Re: *HOAX * Giant Squid washes out in CA - Fukushima to blam

Howard, at the risk of violating rules here, I have to say that you are a fool. There is no other logical explanation. Please, before you post your drivel, spend a few minutes and verify the information. Just because someone posts something on the web, it doesn't mean it is so! Here, read these and ...

Re: NCRP - Radiological Terms

Yes, depending on the source of radiation, skyshine could be an important component, particularly for long term exposures.

NCRP - Radiological Terms

Many times, we use radiological terms with an "approximate" meaning, so when I found this short document with precise explanations, I thought it would be a good thing to share.

Re: "Must-see" Pandora's promise movie!!!

HowardE, your tagline is very appropriate. You must be a very angry man ;-) I think the movie was very well done and to the point. I saw it on CNN. It would have been great if it was taken on by a major movie house and was shown in all theaters, like the old "China Syndrome" movie had been. The gene...

Re: Fukushima Material Release

I have seen dozens of "different" release estimates, some of them claiming lots more radioactive material releases than Chernobyl. Is there a source where I can find published, peer-reviewed information of the measured (or even calculated) releases?

Re: 11 Facts about the real Fukushima holocaust

Good call gradphys. I hadn't looked at the web site he referenced, but now that you pointed it out, I went back and sure enough, all the conspiracies are there, presented as the truth :-) As for Howarde's credibility, after his posts over the past couple of months, he needs to work on it, real hard!

Re: Sr-90 Biological Half Life ??

If we are talking about Sr-90 in the bones (where it will eventually end up), then the "biological" half-life is ~ 50 yrs and the "effective" half life (which is more meanigful) is ~ 18 years. Neither of them is particularly short. Have you seen any numbers as to the content of Sr-90 in the water in...
