WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Last month's record earthquake in the eastern United States may have shaken a Virginia nuclear plant twice as hard as it was designed to withstand, a spokesman for the nuclear safety regulator said on Thursday.

Dominion Resources told the regulator that the ground under the plant exceeded its "design basis" — the first time an operating U.S. plant has experienced such a milestone — but said its seismic data from the site showed shaking at much lower levels than those reported by the U.S. Geological Survey.

Both the company and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission have not yet found any signs of serious damage to safety systems at the North Anna nuclear plant, and the company said it is eager to resume operations once inspections and repairs are complete. 


When I saw where the epicenter of the quake was my ears perked up. I don't think the news media even realized it until hours later. The news media was all talking about how pictures fell off the wall in Washington while I'm worried about the integrity of North Anna. Turns out that the quake was strong enough to move some of the waste storage containers as much as a foot, yet they remained intact. Despite the quake being twice the design basis, the entire plant withstood the quake with only cosmetic damage. Hats off to the engineers and workers that built the plant.

From George Allen's website

Football has always been a central part of George Allen’s life.   He played it at the University of Virginia where he holds a degree “with distinction” in History, as well as a law degree.  And he lived it watching his father coach growing up.  He firmly believes sports is a meritocracy that rewards earned success, teamwork, preparation, competitiveness, perseverance, innovative leadership and hard work – and shows how our government ought to live by some of these principles and characteristics.  In his recently released book, What Washington Can Learn from the World of Sports, he presents solutions that can work to put people across America in a position to compete and succeed in achieving their dreams.


So Washington can learn from sports, can it?  Let's just look at the NFL - which has an elaborate regulatory structure designed to mitigate the tendency of teams from big markets to acquire the best players and so dominate the league.   If it didn't, football would become like American League baseball in the fifties, in which the New York Yankees routinely went to the World Series.  Wow, what sport - a near-guaranteed berth in the World Series...why even play a season, except as a sort of ritual, with an inevitable outcome?

The Old Dominion's latest version of bigotry, racial/cultural bias, and know-nothingness, circa the 21st century.

CUCCINELLI AGREES DMV CAN REFUSE FEDERAL PERMIT

This guy seems destined for his own macacca moment.  Hopefully for Virginians, it will come soon.
