To those spouting at #PWD’s on #ODSP to “get a job”, may I remind you that #ODSP is for ppl who are #DISABLED that either can’t work or can’t work F/T, & even if we attempt to try and find work #ODSP claws back 50% of every $ made above 200$ … 1/6
it is #legislatedpoverty, we only receive 1,169 a month to live on, can you live on that ? I dare you to come up with a budget on that amount rn, guess what, you can’t, no one on #ODSP is living high on the hog I can guarantee you that … 2/6
yes there are #benefits but it’s a #bureaucratic nightmare, everything needs to be approved, forms need to be filled out, these are often #discretionary and the caseworker can deny it if it doesn’t meet a certain #eligibility 3/6

A 3rd 🧵(and probably final) on the #Dmitrievsky #chemicalplant explosion and fire. I spoke with two former team members who have worked at plants like this in the US, and was introduced to a new friend who did a site visit/QC/Process Inspection at this plant in 2012.
All three are not twitter people. All three work in the industry. One at F100 firm, the others at smaller chem-firms. All have read my summary and agree it is fair. They also, like me, are sort of surprised at the level of interest here on this subject. Nice for folks to care.
First - this is very large facility and looking at @Maxar images together we agree it is badly damaged, but not destroyed. The shipment, storage and blending facilities seem intact, but the fire has clearly destroyed one of - perhaps the - most important part of the plant.

Seguimos de celebración por haber alcanzado los 10K y, dado que lo prometido es deuda, os presentamos un nuevo súper-hilo:

¿Qué son los combustibles resistentes a accidentes (#ATF)? ¿Qué ventajas ofrecen respecto al combustible convencional? ¿Qué diseños están desarrollo?
El combustible #nuclear de la mayoría de reactores en operación está formado por pastillas cilíndricas de UO2, con un grado de enriquecimiento en uranio-235 < 5%, alineadas dentro de tubos de aleación de circonio (Zircaloy). Estos tubos se conocen como vainas de combustible Fuente: Foro Nuclear
Es también el resultado de un largo proceso de optimización (+40 años de investigación y desarrollo continuo!) destinado a mejorar su comportamiento y fiabilidad bajo las condiciones extremas del interior del reactor (temperatura, presión, irradiación, oxidación, etc.)

I want to start a new thread story. Not sure how long it will be and I may use different prompts: #vss365 #vssmagic #vssnature etc etc ... I love reading about legends and folk lore, and in my fantasy writing I often create my own myths. So this will be just a fun exercise...
According to #lore &myths of old,griffins nestled on these cliffs long ago. They swooped down on the unsuspecting;carried them off never to be seen again.
Griffins were not elemental creatures,but air & earth did have dominion over them; their only enemy -fire.

"I helped your troupe avoid #shadow and #gore," said the dark wizard simply, implying that he saved us from the mythical griffins. I gaped at him. "And now for what you promised."

"No," I was careful not to get trapped in words, "I said: after you summon her."

Un nouvel #accident #nucléaire à #Tchernobyl ?
Faisons le point.
Je viens d'écrire un long article sur mon blog pour bien tout comprendre :…

Résumé rapide dans ce thread.
Les débris du cœur du réacteur 4 de Tchernobyl, c'est un mélange de combustible nucléaire, et de plein de merde : produits de fissions, débris du cœur, débris du réacteur, absorbants...
Là-dedans, il y a toujours un peu de flux neutronique. Essentiellement issu de phénomènes spontanés, légèrement amplifié par la fission des matières fissiles sous ce flux neutronique (une fission demande un neutron mais en libère 2 ou 3).

According to media reports, a poisonous chemical was released on Thursday (February 11th) in a chemical plant in the Penrose district of Auckland, on the North Island of New Zealand. Because the chemical ended up in the sewage system,

A tanker created a 60-kilometer-long oil film in the North Sea-Baltic Canal. A tanker flying the flag of #Singapore was identified as the suspected polluter. The ship is no longer allowed to sail.
After consulting the public prosecutor in Kiel, a security deposit was ordered against the captain. The police have not yet been able to provide any information about the extent of the environmental damage.
It is also unclear whether the ship's crew may have deliberately dumped oily products into water or whether there was a technical defect.

Strong minds do not exist. Mind is largely made of #neurons and not #Steel. Each one of us can suffer from sadness,fear or depression and attempt suicide though some are more vulnerable. Suicide is due to a state of mind that needs to be treated."

Connaissez-vous l’accident #nucléaire de Vinča (actuelle Serbie) de 1958 ? Il s’agit d’un accident ce criticité qui a marqué l’histoire de la médecine !
Un petit thread ici !
L'institut des sciences nucléaires de Vinča est fondé en 1948. Situé en banlieue proche de Belgrade, il est dirigé par le professeur Pavle Savić. Deux réacteurs nucléaires de recherche y ont été construits : les réacteurs "RA" et "RB".
Le réacteur "RB" (photo) est un assemblage critique non blindé conçu en 1958 pour fonctionner avec de l'eau lourde et des barres de combustible à l'uranium naturel (métal).

#Tchernobyl : dans la nuit du 25 au 26 avril 1986, une série d’erreurs pendant un essai de sécurité entraînent l’explosion du réacteur n°4 et la fusion du cœur. La plus grave catastrophe nucléaire, longtemps la seule classée au niveau 7 sur l’échelle #INES, avant #Fukushima Image
#Tchernobyl, 2019, 33 ans depuis l’accident. Dites 33 : retour sur le rôle déterminant des #satellites d’observation dans le suivi de la #catastrophe : comme les nuages radioactifs, les satellites ne sont pas arrêtés par les frontières. Un #thread à dérouler… #space #nucléaire Image
En 2019, il semble facile d’avoir rapidement une image de n’importe quelle région du monde. Ici, la région et la centrale de #Tchernobyl , près de Prypiat, vue le 13/04/19 par le satellite européen #Sentinel2 (#Copernicus). Les images n’ont pas toujours été aussi disponibles… ImageImageImage
