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.
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.
Since last summer’s announcement, the Los Alamos lab has made 10 additional W88 triggers. This process is viewed by metallurgists as producing a stronger product.
The government acknowledges differences between the old triggers and their replacements.
“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. These means included small-scale plutonium tests, technical data from past underground tests, and computer codes and models.
In a warhead’s detonation, a conventional explosive packaged around the pit compresses the plutonium inward, creating enough pressure for an atomic chain reaction. halted in 1992, and through a different process than the replacements. So far, nine have earned the “diamond stamp” from the National Nuclear Security Administration, which oversees the lab’s programs.
Resting atop the Trident II missile, the W88 warhead is among the mainstays of the country’s submarine-based nuclear arsenal. The scientist spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the issue.
Last summer, the first replacement plutonium trigger in 18 years received “diamond stamp” approval signaling it was ready for use in a warhead. The result is a a massive hydrogen blast.
At least one other replacement pit required 71 specification waivers, a Los Alamos scientist indirectly involved in the production process told The Associated Press. She posed that question in a letter last Friday to Energy Secretary Samuel Bodman.
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 original triggers were made with the benefit of underground nuclear testing, which the U.S. Such approval means they are ready to use.
Precise manufacture of the trigger is essential.. That, in turn, creates the high temperatures and pressure to ignite a “secondary” nuclear component. 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.
The new ones were made by using a mold to cast the grapefruit-size plutonium sphere. The last of the original triggers were manufactured in the late 1980s.
Any variation or flaw in the pit could cause a warhead not to detonate properly or to detonate with less explosive power than expected.
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. To scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, that was a milestone to celebrate. The original triggers, all made at the now-closed Rocky Flats facility in Colorado, were hammered into precise form

Bunker busters — For the second year in a row, the Energy Department is requesting $15 million to study the need for a Robust Nuclear Earth Penetrator (RNEP).
Supporters say these weapons might be necessary to deal with so-called “hard and deeply buried targets” in rogue states and terrorist camps, of which there might be 10,000 in the world.
Defense officials said in 2002 that at present, the U.S could go from the decision to test to a trial run in two to three years. development of low-yield nuclear weapons.
The Bush administration may get permission to create kinder, gentler or at least smaller nuclear weapons if Congress overturns a ban on doing so.
The defense appropriations bill now winding its way through the Hill contains a clause revoking the 1993 Spratt-Furse amendment, which prohibits the development of so-called “low-yield” nuclear weapons – bombs that pack a punch of less than five kilotons.. All rights reserved.
The Foster Panel, which studied the testing issue last year, recommended improvements that would allow a test within three months to a year of deciding to do so. “Unless we do a lot more research and development and we find some quantum breakthrough in conventional systems, to go deep is going to require a nuclear capability.”
A memo obtained by a British newspaper indicates that at a conference this summer, Defense and Energy department officials will consider questions like: “What is the uncertainty in confidence and potential risk threshold for a test recommendation–what would demand a test?”
The Little Boy bomb dropped on Hiroshima delivered around 15 kilotons. In the modern U.S. has signed but not ratified — the administration says it has no plans to conduct a test. Edward Kennedy, the administration has budgeted $700 million for studying how testing might resume.

“Nuclear weapons have a unique ability to destroy both agent containers and (Chemical and Biological Weapons),” reads a 2001 Pentagon study.
Announcing its approval of the bill Friday, the Senate Armed Services committee stressed that nothing in the repeal means it has authorized “the testing, acquisition, or deployment of a low-yield nuclear weapon.”
The move to clear the legal hurdles on manufacturing mini-nukes is part of a broad review of U.S. Two had been recovered and three were still missing as of 5 p.m. — did not prohibit designing a testing device with a yield below five kilotons, modifying an existing weapon for safety reasons or conducting research and development necessary “to address proliferation concerns.”
“How can we effectively seek to dissuade others from developing nuclear weapons while we are going forward with the development of new nuclear weapons ourselves?” Sen. According to Sen. Others contend that making more bombs is a bad idea if the U.S. D. Last May, he and Russian President Vladimir Putin agreed to slash their active arsenals by nearly two-thirds, to 1700 to 2200 warheads each, within 10 years. “nuclear strike capabilities” must be geared towards, according to a leaked copy of the report.
The 1993 low-yield ban that the current defense bill would delete stated that “it shall be the policy of the United States not to conduct research and development which could lead to the production by the United States of a new low-yield nuclear weapon, including a precision low-yield warhead.”
But some members of Congress believe conventional weapons could do the same job, and worry that mini-nukes would blur the line between conventional and nuclear weapons. Five people watching the surf from Hurricane Bill were swept out to sea at Acadia National Park in Maine.
At the same time, however, last month the United States produced a plutonium pit — the core of a fission bomb — for the first time in 14 years. Crouch, the assistant secretary of Defense for International Security Policy, said in a briefing last year.
But some experts contend that no bomb of any size could go very deep, because the heavier the bomb, the harder the impact — and the harder the impact, the more likely the bomb would explode before it reached sufficient depth.
Testing — The U.S. Duncan Hunter, R.-Calif., last May. Other efforts include developing lasers and computers to simulate aspects of nuclear tests.
Nuclear Stockpiles: President Bush has agreed to dramatic reductions in the number of nuclear weapons in the U.S. spent more in real terms on atomic defense activities than since 1962.
Strategy — In its Nuclear Posture Review last year, the administration identified Iraq, Iran, Syria, Libya, North Korea as countries where “contingencies” could arise that U.S. A bomb of just one kiloton, detonated 30 meters below the earth, can open a crater wider than a football field, according to Princeton physicist Robert W.
However, the administration is paying increasing attention to the possibility that it might at some point have to resume testing if there were a question about the reliability of the nation’s stockpile. According to the Los Alamos National Laboratory, the move “restores the nation’s ability to make nuclear weapons,” and was needed so the Energy Department could replace pits found unsafe or destroyed through regular check-ups.

The report credits Energy Secretary Bill Richardson for making long-needed security improvements to the nation’s vulnerable nuclear labs, run by the Department of Energy.
“It means that in addition to paying for our own defense, we are actually paying to arm a potential adversary,” Cox said.
“Some of the most significant thefts have occurred during the last four years,” Cox said.
Details of the Cox report have been trickling out for weeks amid a growing criticism of the Clinton administration’s response to fix the security lapse after it was exposed in 1995.

Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration. — The first flight and drop tests for the latest variant of the W88 nuclear warhead are providing data for Sandia National Laboratories to validate designs, improve computer modeling and update component specifications.
Sandia will use vibration and shock measurements from the test to update specifications for components in the weapon, he said. (Sandia National Laboratories) Click on the thumbnail for a high-resolution image
The two successful tests, which were conducted this summer, provide data for the program, the W88 ALT 370 (alteration), to move forward, said Tim Edwards, manager for the program’s technical basis and qualification activities.
Sandia National Laboratories is a multi-program laboratory operated by Sandia Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Lockheed Martin Corp., for the U.S.
The June CRAFT test was the first of several planned flight tests to demonstrate the upgraded system’s performance. CRAFT demonstrated how the radar performed during re-entry through plasma generated by the hypersonic speeds at which the warhead travels.
“The weapon is not required to function after that, just to stay safe,” Edwards said.
The new radar functioned as expected after launch on a Trident II missile from a Navy submarine, Edwards said. It also represented a milestone: the first flight test unit Sandia and its partners, Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), the Kansas City Plant (KCP) and Pantex, delivered to the Navy for full-scale testing under the program.
Sandia National Laboratories performed a drop test for the W88 ALT 370 program, designed to replicate a crane accidentally dropping the re-entry body onto a concrete surface. With main facilities in Albuquerque, N.M., and Livermore, Calif., Sandia has major RD responsibilities in national security, energy and environmental technologies and economic competitiveness.
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. An abnormal environment is one that is unexpected, such as an accident.
Sandia news media contact: Sue Holmes, email@example.com, 505-844-6362
The Critical Radar Arming and Fuzing Test (CRAFT) was the first flight test of a prototype radar for the W88 ALT 370. The test was conducted at Sandia’s 185-foot Drop Tower Facility, using the same handling gear a crane would use to move the weapon. Using an unarmed re-entry body, Sandia conducted the test in partnership with LANL, KCP and Pantex at Sandia’s 185-foot Drop Tower Facility, using the same handling gear a crane would use to move the weapon, making the test as realistic as possible.. Sandia and its partners are analyzing results to validate requirements and radar design.
A month later, the first drop test of the W88 ALT 370 program mimicked a crane accidentally dropping the re-entry body onto a concrete surface to develop evidence that it would remain safe during an accident. It also will use the information to validate computer models designed to apply the results to other drop scenarios, since it’s not possible to replicate every possible accident in tests.
It was the W88 program’s first abnormal drop test since the system’s original qualification test in 1987
Last month, Pinnacle agreed to buy a 26 percent stake in Asian Coast Development for $95m.
With Vietnam battling inflation and low confidence in its banking system, the government may be increasingly tempted to gamble on allowing more casinos.
Foreign money transforms Vietnam resort city, FT
Genting Singapore beats estimates, FT
Long odds for Macao plan to diversify, FT. Earlier this year, Michael Leven, chief operating officer of Las Vegas Sands, which built the large Marina Bay Sands casino in Singapore, came to Vietnam to talk to the government about opportunities here.
There are currently only 199 licensed gambling venues serving the four billion people who inhabit South and Central Asia, compared to around 1,600 casinos in North American and 1,200 in Europe, according to Asian Coast Development, which is building Vietnam’s first large-scale casino resorts.
One will be managed by NYSE-listed MGM Resorts International (MGM:NYQ), which owns some of Las Vegas’ most well-known casinos, while the other will be run by Pinnacle Entertainment (PNK:NYQ), another NYSE-listed group with casinos in Nevada, Louisiana, Indiana and Missouri. But the casino market is set to be transformed by Asian Coast Development, a Canadian developer backed by Harbinger Capital, a US hedge fund, which is building two large casino resorts on the beachfront Ho Tram strip, 80 miles southeast of Ho Chi Minh City.
But foreign investors sense the winds may be changing.
Genting (GENTING:KLS), the Malaysian gaming group that built the other casino in Singapore, Resorts World Sentosa, is planning to build a casino resort in central Quang Nam province in a joint venture with VinaCapital, one of the longest-running foreign investment firms in Vietnam.
In a recent note to clients, analysts at Citi argued that with Asia so under-served, proposed new casino resorts in Cambodia, the Philippines and Vietnam will “generate renewed interest in the space.”
From Singaporeans playing illegal football pools through a telephone broker in Malaysia to Vietnamese gambling over cards at a pool hall, there is clearly strong demand for gambling in much of Southeast Asia.
While Europe and America have been fretting about casino banking, Southeast Asia appears to be banking on casinos.
Following the highly profitable legalisation of casinos in Singapore, which will see the city-state rival Las Vegas as the world’s second biggest gambling market after Macao next year, other Southeast Asian nations are moving down a similar path.
The MGM Grand casino, which will is scheduled to start a phased opening from 2013, will eventually have 90 gambling tables and 1,000 slot machines.
The Vietnamese government, which frequently campaigns against “social evils” such as illegal gambling, prostitution and alcoholism, remains nervous about opening the field for more casinos.
While these markets will likely remain smaller than Singapore and even Malaysia, we sense they could provide better growth prospects over time, albeit with added country risk/limited liquidity.
It will dwarf existing outfits such as the Silver Shores International Resort in Danang, which euphemistically calls its small gambling centre an “adult entertainment centre with financial rewards” rather than a casino, much in the same way that Singapore prefers to call its casinos “integrated resorts”.
But regional governments long resisted calls from US and other casino companies to allow them to open up, arguing that legalising gambling would cause social problems.
Vietnam has allowed a number of small casinos to operate in recent years, so long as they serve only foreigners and keep a relatively low profile
You should not patch the cracks online, watching porn.
I took the computer and went in the bathroom, locked the door, and checked out all his “history” and “caches” from both his Safari and Firefox internet browsers. But I can’t forget situations that have to do with distrust.
Good luck to all!
I don’t see any difference between watching porn online and going to a strip club to see girls dancing naked. He immediately started breathing heavier and sweating even though the A/C was full on.
Thanks to all for reading my long message. We don’t go to mass or do all the catholic rituals, we just have that catholic upbringing from having being in private catholic schools. And THEN, take it from there. He went blank, and said: “I haven’t visited any porn sites”. I’m just an average woman, when it comes down to all that. At 5am! he followed me in his car and took me home. I’ve even sacrificed career dreams to support his, and this porn issue makes me feel like I should have never done that.
This is a very common issue in relationships, and that’s why men try to justify it as being something “every guy does”. It’s hard to realize this is the beginning of the end of this relationship, at this point in my life. My partner knew that very well.
It’s a very hard subject to discuss, as everyone has different views of what a healthy relationship and sexual relationship should be. Then, he woke up, and asked me what was it I was looking at. I’ve never seen a man so in love with me before, who always really put me first. Than, he said, “we’ll i watched it once before”. And have given my partners the same.
Please post any replies identifying the message with “REPLY” on the first paragraph of your reply.
Instead, they should talk to their partners about it as a couple, to see how the other feels about it. This, assuming you didn’t go for a lap dance or more at the strip club, or started chatting with girls online.
I’ve always wanted to work elsewhere, and haven’t done so to support his career dreams at this time (we planned to tackle my career dreams together later on, and tackle his first). What might be ok to someone may not be ok to someone else, due to their beliefs and upbringing.
Me personally…I grew up in a catholic family were also, trust and respect for others is everything. While in the car he said: “I did it because I was just curious”. I saw it, as I was looking for another link in the “History” I had visited before, that had nothing to do with porn.
Mind you, all the sites were girls-girls, girls-guys, and one of transexuals having sex!!!!
I kept asking him, and he denied it. I wasn’t looking for it. I rather not waste my time or his anymore, and be in a relationship in those terms.
Like most people, I’ve had pre-marital sex with all my partners (I’m not married) I’m just not as liberal as other people who don’t mind having orgies at home, kissing other guys/girls, taking many drugs, etc. When you do something behind someone else’s back, it’s because you know in your heart it might upset the other person.. I don’t trust him the same way, and to me, trust is everything. (Hello, who doesn’t?! Living 100% under catholic beliefs is rarely seen anymore).
It’s very selfishl and immature for guys to think it’s ok only because “guys think like that”.
In a relationship, I only ask TRUST, COMMUNICATION, and RESPECT. I NEVER negotiate with not getting that. I’m 40, and it’s hard to not know now were my life may be heading without him. To what I said: “Maybe more like 30 times and counting?!…it’s right here in the “History”!” And then he started looking like “shit, I got caught”.
This happened right next to him, while I was using his laptop, and he was sleeping next to me. Remember, I only ask for TRUST, RESPECT, and COMMUNICATION in a relationship. I was also looking to let it all out while writing it. I came out of the bathroom, took my things and left. Still, I have experimented with things catholisism says you should not. I said: “The porn sited you’ve visited”. This got me even more mad.
We were supposed to go to NYC together on vacation 4 days later. You can call it conservative, or you can call me wild child too…it depends on what your core beliefs are.
I believe all guys who do so behind their partners back are “virtual cheaters”. Specially, because he denied it when I asked him the first time. I rather not live with that stress, or have to bring up this situation everytime I get mad or angry at him for something else (I know I will do that). When someone breaks my trust, I rather not be with that person anymore. I don’t feel comfortable with him anymore. But, it’ll be really hard for me, as we were planning to do that together. He had many visits to porn sites. And if you don’t have a healthy stable relationship, you should discuss it with your partner first to fix up the cracks TOGETHER.
We’ve been together for 2 years, and had the most healthy and beautiful relationship. How would they feel if their girlfriends do the sam, watching or chatting to guys online?
Why do guys never mention they were watching porn online to their partners?…because they know it’ll bother them! That’s why they hide it.
I just found out my boyfriend watches porn sites often, by looking at his computer “History”. Everyone has different needs. now, I feel like I should just go on with my life, and go live my career and personal dreams elsewhere.
I felt so mad and betrayed. I decided not to go. I said: “Don’t treat me as if I’m stupid, you can’t deny it, it’s right here, in your “History”. You’re looking at girls naked: one is dancing in front of you almost naked (and you don’t touch her), the other is fuxxxxx a guy/girl naked in your computer, and you don’t touch her. Not do it behind their partners back. I need someone to talk to about this, but feel ashamed to tell others what my boyfriend (or ex-boyfriend) did.
Doing this not only causes distrust from the other person, but also inadequate feelings and insecurities. It’s the same principle. Because it’s an easier way out for them to say that, than admit they were hiding something from their partners.
When you’re in a happy and healthy sexual relationship you don’t have the need to look elsewhere. You’re making the other person feel like he/she is not good enough.
It’s very sad, as I am deeply in love with him, and always thought this was the man I will be with forever. I feel totally lost, at a moment in my life were I most need my partner’s support, as I have several relatives in my life who are dealing with serious health issues.
I know if I stay with him, it’ll always hunt me that he may be going online to watch porn, or that he may be lying to me on other things

Last year, Potter returned to Eiger — this time with his dog, Whisper, outfitted in goggles and strapped to hisback. At times, the climbs appeared more extreme than the jumps. Here are some of Potter’s most high-profile jumps captured on film:
Potter also dabbled in paragliding and he posted his first paragliding adventure on his birthday last year.
For many of his BASE jumps, Potter free-climbed to some of the cliffs he plunged off. A lifelong passion for extreme sports ended in climber Dean Potter’s death on Saturdaywhen Potter, 43, and his friend Graham Hunt, 29, died in a BASE jumping accident in Yosemite National Park.
Also in 2006, Potter did a free solo climb of a route on Yosemite’s Glacier Point called Heaven. The two tandem jumped off a ledge, and the video can make people queasy to say the least, but Whisperseems to be OK.
In 2009, Potter jumped off a cliff on Switzerland’s Eiger Mountain, flying for nearly three minutes in a wing suit. In July 2006, he climbed the Reticent Wall, one of the hardest routes on El Capitan in Yosemite.. Images from this climb that have been viewed around the world
Shinjuku another major travel Japan Tokoy tourist destination of land of rising sun Japan. Fuji each year, and several of them are foreign tourists who come to take pleasure in the beauty of this massive mountain.
The author is the expert writer having vast experience about the travel industry. It is one of the best destinations in Japan.
To get here, just take a bus from the JR station to Fujinomiya Fujinomiya in Shizuoka Shin-go-gome. Although many drinks and good quality food sold in the huts in the cabins, which are very expensive. Mount Fuji is worshiped by all the Japanese people, and call it as “Fuji-san”. Fuji in the afternoon and rest in a hut before climbing to the summit at dawn. It is 2,400 m Regular cars are not allowed to drive to stations in August fifth. Fujinomiya-guchi Japan holiday route and most people begin to climb this route. All these things make a historical. Therefore, it is best to bring enough water and food with you. However, it is safe to climb this mountain at any time.
Depending on the altitude, the different paths are appointed as ten different stations. Kabukicho is well known for its exciting nightlife and dazzling. It has temples, historical buildings, museums and churches. Besides from this there are several attractions that are not known by tourists. Officially, he will climb Mt. That is the official climbing season. Fuji is the dream of many travelers. The shortest route is Mt. You can visit the park of Shinjuku Kabukicho Gyoen and. The trend is starting to climb Mt. Mount Fuji is Japan’s highest mountain. You can get many points of gambling games and casinos.
Kyoto is a popular place that has a mixture of all cultures. Most people come to Japan to visit big cities like Tokyo, Osaka, Mount Fuji and many more. It is also a volcano. During this time, all roads are crowded, but trust me, it’s best to climb Mt. They want to climb this mountain at least once in their lives. Its height scales at about 12,388 feet. Generally, it will cost up to ¥ 5000-7000 yen per night. Fuji only 1 July to late August. According to reports, it is suggested that about 3,00,000 people try to climb Mt. You can go to the fifth season (go-GOME), either a car or a bus.
Climbing Mt. Currently he is writing on various topics related to travel industry like: xian terracotta warriors, safari tours africa, shanghai tourism, tours to burma, laos tours etc.
‘Mountain huts’ is located between the seventh and the peak season. However, many people prefer to go at night with flashlights to reach the summit at dawn.
In terms of location is concerned, Fuji Mountain is about 60 kilometers southwest of Tokyo and the prefectures of Shizuoka, Yamanashi. Fuji at this time of year.
. In addition, the buses to go to the fifth stations are not operated regularly during the season.
However, you will always discourage climbing during the low season due to bad weather
