Quality of warhead triggers questioned

Last summer, the first replacement plutonium trigger in 18 years received “diamond stamp” approval signaling it was ready for use in a warhead. To scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, that was a milestone to celebrate. So far, nine have earned the “diamond stamp” from the National Nuclear Security Administration, which oversees the lab’s programs. This process is viewed by metallurgists as producing a stronger product.

“With this large number of waivers, how is it possible to objectively tell whether the pit will even work?” said Danielle Brian, executive director of the group that monitors nuclear weapons-related activities. For years, however, testing the warhead’s components to ensure the weapon produces the intended blast instead of a fizzle has been complicated by a lack of replacement plutonium triggers.

Precise manufacture of the trigger is essential.

In a warhead’s detonation, a conventional explosive packaged around the pit compresses the plutonium inward, creating enough pressure for an atomic chain reaction. The original triggers were made with the benefit of underground nuclear testing, which the U.S. That, in turn, creates the high temperatures and pressure to ignite a “secondary” nuclear component. She posed that question in a letter last Friday to Energy Secretary Samuel Bodman.. It meant the warheads, after testing that makes the original trigger unsuitable for reuse, could be reassembled with a new trigger and put back into service.

A watchdog group now is raising questions about whether the replacement triggers, also known as pits, can be guaranteed to be as reliable as those already in some 400 W88 warheads. The last of the original triggers were manufactured in the late 1980s.

The Project on Government Oversight says it was told by some Los Alamos scientists that the trigger certified last July and known as the W88 pit needed 72 waivers from the specifications used for the original triggers, including 53 engineering-related changes.

Because the United States no longer conducts underground nuclear tests, the Los Alamos scientists had to rely on other sources to replicate the original triggers and guarantee that the replacements would be as reliable as the old. halted in 1992, and through a different process than the replacements. Such approval means they are ready to use.

The government acknowledges differences between the old triggers and their replacements.

At least one other replacement pit required 71 specification waivers, a Los Alamos scientist indirectly involved in the production process told The Associated Press. The original triggers, all made at the now-closed Rocky Flats facility in Colorado, were hammered into precise form. The result is a a massive hydrogen blast.

Any variation or flaw in the pit could cause a warhead not to detonate properly or to detonate with less explosive power than expected.

The new ones were made by using a mold to cast the grapefruit-size plutonium sphere. These means included small-scale plutonium tests, technical data from past underground tests, and computer codes and models.

Since last summer’s announcement, the Los Alamos lab has made 10 additional W88 triggers. The scientist spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the issue.

Resting atop the Trident II missile, the W88 warhead is among the mainstays of the country’s submarine-based nuclear arsenal

Transatlantic clean ship rates soften | Energy & Oil | Reuters

LONDON Jan 23 (Reuters) – Refined petroleum tanker

rates on top export routes were mostly steady on Monday although

slower activity took its toll on earnings in the transatlantic


Long Range (LR) 1 tankers, carrying 55,000 tonne loads from

the Middle East Gulf (MEG) to Japan, were at W104.50, from

W104.04 on Friday and W98.15 last Monday.


Brokers said a rush of cargo fixing earlier last week,

helped by a demand boost, lost momentum.

Typical Long Range 2, 75,000 tonne shipments on the Middle

East Gulf (MEG) to Japan route stood at W88.95 from W88.71 on

Friday and W88.38 on Monday.

“This looks likely to have been a fleeting spike, however,

and a sedate end to the week lowered rates back down to …

$13,500/day,” broker SSY said on Monday.

Earnings hit their lowest in a year in November and have

been volatile since then. Firmer activity in April last year

pushed rates to their highest since 2008 on a jump in U.S.

gasoline demand, helping to reduce the number of tankers

available for hire.

Rates for medium-range (MR) tankers for 37,000 tonne cargoes

from Rotterdam to New York moved to W155.00, or $11,642 a day

when translated into average earnings, from W164.79 or $13,688 a

day on Friday and W154.38 or $11,406 a day last Monday.

* Transatlantic market set to stay volatile

* LR rates to stay subdued due to China holidays

Has Anyone ever been Disfellowshiped Before? (JW’s plz) It sucks.. Still trying to get back. I just need someone to talk to.

Not repentant enough, or something like that. I remember her coming to meetings and just sitting. Afterward she would just go sit in the car. After about six months of this she wrote a letter to the society asking to be reinstated; she was turned down. However, my sister was DF’d.

. She ended up leaving “The Truth” completely, and almost 20 years later, doesn’t look back at all.

I wasn’t DF’d because I was never baptized, I was “disassociated,” which is like Disfellowshipping Lite, because I asked to be removed from the congregation

Lis on Law: Questions Answered!

Thirdly, duplicates of a data stream are not like duplicates of a copy machine. I can not find her now.

Lis Wiehl joined FOX News Channel as a legal analyst in October 2001. it is a pervasive gender bias issue.

The information contained in this Web site feature entitled “LIS ON LAW,” is provided as a service to visitors of foxnews.com, and does not constitute legal advice or establish an attorney client relationship. There are differences in pay between men and women, between men, and between women in any job category in any company. This is likely to be an assumption based upon the rendering appearing as something meaningful. I contacted “CORDIS” and they said that they never did any safety studies with EECP and stented patients. — Chris (Chicago, IL)

As a 43-year-old female who had my first job at age 13, started college at 16 (graduated at 20) and later went back to school for a Master of Science degree, I am just one of millions of women who have struggled for years to make ends meet due to gender discrepancies in both job opportunities and salary. This has never been about IQ, ability or dedication to the job … Notice this has nothing to do with gender bias.

I have seen you go toe-to-toe with Marc Rudov a couple of times now. FOX NEWS NETWORK, LLC makes no claims, promises or guarantees about the accuracy, completeness, or adequacy of the information contained in or linked to this web site feature and its associated sites. Isn’t gambling illegal in the state of Texas? The last thing I want is to see him arrested in a raid or anything, for my son’s sake. Please know I respect the fact that you held your cool as well as you did. That is, people at the same level in a company are usually paid within a band and that means there are some men who make more than some women and some women who make more than men. Making an image of a data stream under the proper chain of custody does not create a copy. here’s why: According to Texas law, a person who “plays and bets for money or other thing of value at any game played with cards, dice, balls, or any other gambling device is guilty of a class C misdemeanor which is punishable by a fine not to exceed $500.” And, if that’s not warning enough, a person commits an offense if he “knowingly uses or permits another to use as a gambling place any real estate, building, room, tent, vehicle, boat, or other property whatsoever owned by him or under his control, or rents or lets any such property” is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor which is punishable by a “fine not to exceed $4,000, confinement in jail for a term not to exceed one year, or both. [Chapters 47 and 112 of the Texas Code] — Lis

I saw you on FOX discussing the recent study on the perceived women’s pay inequity versus men. What is the legality of off-label intervention? — Faith, a loving wife of a Vietnam Vet

Answer: Dear Kevin, Thanks for the terrific research! Ms. For example, a survey of pubic relations professionals showed that women with less than five years of experience make $29,726, while their male counterparts earn $48,162. When you take the average of those two jobs, it is clear that bridge builders make more money than secretaries; so by definition men are going to come out ahead without sexism entering into the decision process. Doctors are allowed to prescribe stents to off-label patients, but manufacturers are not allowed to encourage off-label use. I would not have been so composed. He threw a lot of “facts” out in an attempt to counter your personal experiences regarding inequality in pay between the genders without anyone having the ability to check his “facts.” When he said that women don’t build bridges, I knew he was grossly in error as I’ve seen a documentary on the Brooklyn Bridge on another channel and knew that a woman had played a significant roll in its engineering and construction. Thereafter, the younger Roebling, with the extraordinary assistance of his wife Emily, directed the construction of the bridge from his Brooklyn residence. People cannot see these data streams anymore than they can see DNA samples. Nothing provided herein should be used as a substitute for the advice of your own counsel.

This is a question for law school indeed. — Wayne

This week’s Lis on Law takes a new twist: Lis answers your questions!

I was taken aback by the chauvinistic arrogance of the man who appeared with you on Neil Cavuto’s program today. There are no pictures of which to take pictures. She is currently a professor of law at the New York Law School. The guest correctly pointed this out, but you brushed it aside when he said that men build bridges and women don’t, and that women are dental hygienists and secretaries and men are not. When he stated women don’t build ships or do “men’s” jobs, I just lost it. Secondly, in this case, the computer itself is largely irrelevant — only the hard drive holds the evidence. And if we take pregnancy out of the equation, as you suggest, we are admitting that it is a “disability” as it is now labeled under the law … Okay, enough history. It’s just a deeper question than most people are prepared for even in our “computerized” age. Significantly in this case it is established that the data stream was stored in a manner to be rendered as a picture. She, the lawyer, said that the courts were tossing the law suits out left and right and that the time required and the costs (I have no money) would be huge, so she didn’t want to pursue it. I believe that pay should be geared for the job, not the gender of the person holding the position. Why were we put in this position by cardiologists who knew this would happen? This group also had him undergo 35 EECP treatments and when he was done … Women attorneys earn nearly $375 per week less than male attorneys, women doctors earn nearly $680 per week less than male doctors, women professors earn $245 per week less than male professors, and women schoolteachers earn $86 per week less than male teachers. Wiehl received her undergraduate degree from Barnard College in 1983 and received her Master of Arts in Literature from the University of Queensland in 1985. The rest of the computer can be tossed and replaced as long as the chain of custody remains for the hard drive. Data streams do not change under imaging. In addition, she earned her Juris Doctor from Harvard Law School in 1987. I just wanted to drop you this note to get you to think about some factors that could have made the study’s conclusion incorrect, as it was conducted.

* Disclaimer

Answer: Dear Rich, If you want to pursue a class action suit you will have to find other people who have launched or are launching similar suits. The study looked at all job categories and compared men and women in them. (Watch the Video) To read the rest of Lis’s bio, click here.

Answer: Dear Tru, I’d be happy to have you send me more information … The lawyer wondered if that would be high enough. I estimated that the class action should be in the neighborhood of $4 trillion (80 million gun owners and an estimation of $50 per gun cost increase). it sounds like an absolute nightmare. How should I counsel him? — Cece

“Fires, explosions and caisson disease (caused by changes in air pressure that affect nitrogen levels in the bloodstream) took the lives of 20 men, and left Washington Roebling himself paralyzed. That is, if you have nine men and one woman bridge builder making $100K and nine women and one male secretary making $30K, the average woman’s salary is $37K while the average man’s salary is $93K. I’m sure this example is only the tip of the iceberg in a long line of women who perform “men’s jobs” seamlessly. — Moira (Florida). The NYC Mayor Bloomberg suing gun dealers left and right as far as a half dozen states away from NYC because he is unable to control the crime in his own city and needs to blame everyone else for his failures. Your class would have to prove that previous lawsuits were the reason behind the increase in gun prices, as opposed to increases in labor and material cost, and the effects of foreign competition. — Tru

Answer: Dear Cece, I am worried for your husband … I think you knew what he was saying, but for some reason you tried to look stunned. — Lis

Now to the case at hand: Since data streams may be imaged without loss of fact the judge has no basis for denying admittance of evidence in this case. The cardiologist who was on-call decided to persist for two-and-a half hours and placed five stents. We are TIED to the hospital now. A study of women in the telecommunications industry showed that among video programmers, women with advanced degrees earn 64.6 percent of the salary of their male colleagues, and women with college degrees earn 80 percent. He was saying that the vast majority of bridge builders are men, not every single one and the vast majority of secretaries are women, not every single one. UGH! Thanks for representing the working woman. The short answer to your question is that not enough is known about the effects of off-label use of heart stents to say they are the cause of post-operative complications. My husband had the unfortunate experience of having a heart attack on Christmas Day. Copies are degraded by duplication. — Kevin (Dover, NH)

My contention was that as the lawsuits were being brought, the manufacturers were forced to raise the cost of their products. Here is a quote from a history of the bridge that I found, easily:

Answer: Moira, my pleasure! Best, Lis

Answer: Dear Wayne, You and Tom need to start a law school exam business … But beware that in 2005 Congress passed into law the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (Public Law 109-92.) which effectively prevents firearm manufacturers from being held liable for crimes committed with their products, thus eliminating many of the legal grounds for many of these previous lawsuits you mention. The difference could be due more to the negotiating capability of the individual, productivity and demeanor of the individual, and a host of other factors and potentially not gender. Right now, a Congressional committee is looking into the “off label” use of drugs and heart stents, examining the widespread practice in which doctors prescribe medical products to patients outside the boundaries approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Rather what must be agreed upon is how the data stream shall be rendered. Therefore I, as a consumer of their products, was forced to pay higher costs. Anyway, here are three things to consider that are not covered in the study:

My ex-husband has opened up a “poker house” (a room, I am sure) in the back of a business establishment. Judges and attorneys are not prepared for computer technology. The law has not kept up with technology and new understanding.

Are you interested? — Rich (Grants Pass, OR)

Drug-coated heart stents are a huge business and have been in the news for the past few years. So simply because there is a difference is not de facto evidence of discrimination. It can be rendered as sight, sound, touch, or many other ways. — Best, Lis

This took place in the 1800s, and I doubt this woman received a penny for her contribution. When he said a woman should just quit her job if she isn’t getting paid equally, he sounded like a total idiot. Lis is also the author of The 51% Minority — How Women Still Are Not Equal and What You Can Do About It. Let me first state that there are no pictures on any computer anywhere in the world. Does he REALLY believe what he is saying? From under what rock did he crawl? When he scoffed and dismissed the recounting of your personal experience, I wanted to scream. Shouldn’t all those gun owners within the slimy reach of this billionaire megalomaniac be protected from him by filing a class action lawsuit similar to the one I envisioned? While the lawsuit amount could be adjusted, a little bit, how do you go about doing that?

Answer: Dear Faith, First off, good luck to you and your husband … It creates another existence of the data stream itself. These devices cannot be removed and keep scarring over and forming blockages. I just wonder how many men think the way Mark does and aren’t stupid enough to say it out loud. Roebling was a true pioneer. Best, Lis

* Click here for disclaimer information

Answer: Dear Chris, I am comparing apples to apples/oranges to oranges. to me it is a SUPERABILITY. although even without it, I have a pretty good idea of what I’m dealing with (smile.) Best, Lis

Some years back when numerous lawsuits were being brought against gun manufacturers for no valid reason, except that some law firms hoped to bankrupt the gun makers, I located and spoke with a constitutional lawyer in Philadelphia regarding this.

The guest you were debating stated two of them and it appeared that because of your emotional attachment to the issue and personal history you were unable to address directly his comments. With nearly all of the lawsuits having been tossed out by the courts (a correct decision in my opinion), the result of their frivolous lawsuits was a form of restraint of trade.

2. excellent! — Lis

The attorney in Philadelphia suggested that I probably had a valid cause to bring a suit against the various City’s and law firms involved. About 60 percent of drug-coated stents, which prop open clogged arteries, are off-label. Now we just need to agree whether we want the data stream rendered as a picture on paper or screen.

I was floored by the comments made by Mark (the man offering the counter point to your views on Cavuto’s feature on April 24, 2007). With her husband’s assistance, Emily Roebling studied higher mathematics and bridge engineering, and soon made daily visits to the bridge to oversee her husband’s staff of engineers and builders.”
