Dear List members

I received the following news item today. 


I find it difficult to believe  that uranium containing spherical particles released from the molten fuel in Fukushima  started appearing in US beaches

Coincidentally, I visited the Glasgow University campus while attending
the IRPA Meeting there last month. I'll take your advice and write to the
Secretary of the University Court. It is ludicrous that they would take
this action, destroying such a historical item.
