The U.K. Defense Nuclear Safety Regulator (DNSR) has notified the U.K. Ministry of Defense (MoD) of a “failure of safety culture,” “inadequate resourcing” and “continued non-compliance.” The DNSR issued two safety improvement notices to the MoD in 2010, two more in 2016 and one in 2017. These notices claim that there were a series of safety errors at the U.K.

Coding is all the rage right now, and for good reason. Many jobs call for coding skills and it makes sense to teach kids and teens how to do it. There are dozens of coding games available to help teach kids these skills and you can order most of them online. There are even games for the youngest children.
Malawi tribal chief Theresa Kachindamoto is an incredible inspiration. The woman, fed up with all of the child marriages ruining so many lives of the local girls in Central Malawi, took a stand and just opened up communication with the girls' parents in order to protect them from child marriage. She explained to them what better chances their daughters could have in live if, instead of marrying so young, they were given the opportunity to finish school and use their education for a good job. She's saved at least 850 girls through her tireless efforts.

When we hear about the Galapagos Islands, we often hear about tortoises, iguanas and Charles Darwin. Darwin ate his subjects, by the way, including the tortoises and iguana as well as puma and armadillos, the last of which we're warned to not eat where I come from due to leprosy risk. But how many of us have heard about the pink armadillos found on the islands?
Researchers from Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Washington have created an amazing game that relies on brain waves for communication. It takes three people to play the game, and while it wasn't good for delivering complex thoughts or actual mind-reading, it did allow people to commuicate telepathically to decide whether or not to rotate a block.
There are many threats to human existence on Earth. There are inactive super volcanoes that could erupt and kill billions of people. Climate change is not as dramatic but does pose an existential threat. Comets or asteroids impacts could devastate the surface of the planet and wipe out the entire ecosystem.

The Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) is the third deep geological repository for nuclear waste in the world. The first two were located in Germany and are closed. The WIPP is licensed to permanently dispose of transuranic radioactive waste left over from the development and manufacture of nuclear weapons. It is supposed to safely isolate nuclear waste for ten thousand years.

As of the end of 2010, Japan was generating about thirty percent of its electricity from nuclear power from its fleet of forty-two commercial power reactors. They intended to raise nuclear power generation to forty percent. Then, in March of 2011, a tsunami flooded the Fukushima power plant and four of the six reactors at the site were destroyed.
